A FEISTY duck which caused

chaos in St Martins has played

chicken for the last time.

After a short stint as a

local celebrity, the St Martins

Duck was hit and killed by a

car on Centaurus Rd last week

– the day The Star published an

article on the duck’s ongoing

antics.

The paradise duck made a

name for itself in the suburb for

being aggressive with a tendency

to go quackers over brightly

coloured clothing and shoes.

With its own Facebook group,

the ‘St Martins Duck’ was

reported to bite people’s ankles,

play ‘chicken’ with buses and

was known to sit in the middle

of the road, not moving or

budging.

The wailing duck with a reputation

of causing a racket would

frequent the St Martins New

World car park.

St Martins resident Ange Yates

was very disappointed to hear of

the duck’s passing, after being

in touch with Wellington-based

duck expert, Craig Shepherd,

also known as Duckman.

Mr Shepherd offered to transport

the troubled duck to a new

home with 80 other paradise

ducks.

The duck’s body was picked

up by Animal and Bird Hospital.

“Her penchant for parading

Centaurus Rd was her final

undoing. She sure won many

a heart with her sassiness,

although her persistent pecking

at passersby riled a few! RIP

hospital’s Facebook page.

Attack costs CDHB $6m

• By Sophie Cornish

THE COST of the March 15

terror attack has reached the $6

million mark for the Canterbury

District Health Board.

The attack by a lone gunman

on the Al Noor Mosque on Deans

Ave and Linwood Islamic Centre

killed 51 people and injured 49.

“Canterbury DHB’s initial

response to the March terrorist

attack has been quantified at

$6 million,”

said a CDHB

financial

report.

Said CDHB

chief executive

David Meates:

“This has been

derived from

David Meates

our internal

costing

systems, and

covers the direct costs that have

been incurred by Canterbury

DHB in the initial response

post-attack through to the end of

June.”

The Ministry of Health has

approved additional funding of

$3 million for the CDHB.

Mr Meates said the remaining

costs will be funded from a

population-based funding

formula. This is a technical tool

used to help evenly distribute

the bulk of the CDHB’s funding

according to the needs of the

population.

Additional costs will be added

to the CDHB’s deficit.

Previously, Mr Meates called

sector “truly extraordinary.”

Figures released in April

revealed the extensive lengths to

which Christchurch Hospital was

pushed in the aftermath of the

event.

In the month following March

15, more than 8800 minutes were

spent in surgery for the victims,

which equates to six continuous

days.

Mr Meates said never

before has a hospital in

New Zealand been required

to manage 48 patients with

gunshot wounds.

“Even internationally, a trauma

event of this size would usually

be spread across a number of

healthcare centres,” he said.

The financial report also

revealed other costs for the

CDHB, such as industrial action,

which has cost $2 million so

far and the flooding of the

outpatients building, which has

cost $1 million so far.

Separate financial reporting

was needed to consider the cost

of the measles outbreak, Mr

Meates said.

Bid to farm cannabis

• By Chris Tobin

A CHRISTCHURCH company

is hoping to obtain Ministry of

Health approval soon to start

cultivating cannabis for medical

and scientific use and is urging

farmers to get involved.

Co-founder and managing

director of Long White Cloud

Genetics Aaron Hill said he had

been approached by landowners

interested in learning more

about the medicinal cannabis

industry.

‘’With more and more

opportunities opening for

farmers who typically rely on

meat and dairy, it’s something

they could seriously investigate

if they have interest.’’

Mr Hill said the company

intended to buy land, probably

in the Lincoln area, to grow and

manufacture the drug.

‘’We’re looking to acquire a

decent farm and do an outdoor

hemp crop.’’

A high-tech indoor cultivation

facility was also being designed

which, when completed, could

employ up to 50 staff.

In December, the Government

passed its medicinal cannabis

Bill, allowing terminally ill

people to possess and use illicit

cannabis and to possess a

cannabis utensil.

The Bill made provision

also for a licensed medicinal

cannabis scheme for the

manufacture, importing,

and supply of the drug while

cannabidiol (CBD) and CBD

products were no longer classed

as controlled drugs.

Pharmacies would also be

able to sell regulated marijuana

products.

When the Bill was passed,

National leader Simon Bridges

said it was decriminalisation of

cannabis by stealth.

The scheme was expected to

start within a year of the law

taking effect, and commercial

licences for manufacturers to

be issued early in 2020, but Mr

Hill said,’’they seem to be a bit

behind the initial plan.’’

Last week the Ministry of

Health published the proposed

regulations and standards for

medicinal cannabis, covering

everything from cultivation

to quality standards. Public

consultation is open until

Wednesday, August 7.

The scheme’s regulations

will be finalised by December

18.

Mr Hill also manages

another Christchurch company,

Southern Alp Meats, which

processes and exports wild

venison, goat and alpine tahr.

The company has held

discussions with an overseas

company to form a partnership.

‘’The contract will be worth

over $20 million annually.

We don’t want to announce

too much at this stage but

the company is based in

Washington and it has helped

Hikurangi.’’

Ruatoria-based Hikurangi

Cannabis Company is the first

New Zealand company to hold a

medicinal cannabis cultivation

licence.

City council

• By Louis Day

THE APPOINTMENT of the

city council’s new $495,000

chief executive looks set to

become a major political issue

leading into October’s local

body elections.

Shots were fired yesterday

over Dawn Baxendale’s (right)

salary – which is $80,000 more

than what outgoing city council

chief executive Karleen Edwards

was paid.

She has been recruited from a

council role in England.

Third term city councillor

and potential mayoral candidate

James Gough who voted against

the appointment and salary said

ratepayers would not be happy.

He believed party politics

around the council table had

played a big part in the decision.

Cr Gough said left-leaning

political group The People’s

Choice, which has seven councillors,

had voted like a Parliamentary

caucus.

However, one People’s Choice

councillor Yani Johanson, voted

against Mrs Baxendale’s salary.

Cr Gough, who is part of

right-leaning Independent

Citizens said: “I think the general

public is at the end of their

tether with the constant rise in

rates and I think the general

population share my view that

the rate of rate increases is unsustainable,”

he said.

Fellow councillor Aaron Keown,

an independent, who also

voted against her appointment

and salary agreed.

He also did not think Mrs

Baxendale, who was one of 38

applicants, was the right person

for the job

“She is one of a number of

people who would be right for

the job but we could not afford

her. You have got 38 people and

many of them were willing to

do it for $400,000 or less which

is an amount that would be a lot

more acceptable,” he said.

chief’s pay an election issue

City councillors and Mayor

Lianne Dalziel met behind

closed doors to vote who should

get the chief executive’s job.

There was also a separate vote to

determine how Mrs Baxendale

would be paid.

But in a response

to The

Star yesterday.

Ms Dalziel

released who

had voted for

and against

the appointment

and

James Gough

salaries.

She also

sent an email

to city councillors advising them

not to comment on Mrs Baxendale’s

appointment. Crs Keown

and Gough had spoken to The

Star before the email was issued.

Ms Dalziel told The Star

she was “simply reminding

councillors” she was the only

person authorised to speak on

the appointment.

She defended the appointment

of Mrs Baxendale and her salary.

“Dawn’s experience and

achievements are significant

and the attributes and abilities

she will bring to the role will, I

believe, see her perform to a very

high standard as our CE and

add significant value to the city

council and to the city,” said Ms

Dalziel.

“In order to secure Dawn

Baxendale, it was necessary to

meet her salary expectations,

which were high, but not dissimilar

to those of other applicants

with her level of experience

at chief executive level, no doubt

attributable to market expectations

of what is one of the largest

local government roles in New

Zealand.

“It is the second-largest

local authority and this is the

second-largest salary that is being

paid. It remains significantly

less than the salary that was

being paid to the chief executive

six years ago.”

It is not yet known when

Mrs Baxendale will start in

Christchurch after finishing her

role as Birmingham City Council

chief executive, where her

salary was reportedly £210,000

(NZ$397,000).

Said Cr Gough about The

People’s Choice voting: “There

was certainly some consistency

around the appointment and

I think it would be naive to

assume an issue as important

as this was not caucused by

The People’s Choice candidates

which they regularly do on issues.”

But The People’s Choice

chairman Keir Leslie did

not think Mrs Baxendale’s

appointment would affect the

group’s campaign heading into

October’s elections.

“I think that voters are going

to be focused on the big issues

like the living wage, keeping

assets and delivering services,”

he said.

City councillor Deon Swiggs,

an independent, also voted

against Mrs Baxendale’s

appointment and salary.

Woman attacked in dairy robbery

• By Sophie Cornish

A 52-YEAR-OLD woman

working in a diary was punched

and hospitalised after an

aggravated robbery on Sunday.

It was the second time a

worker has been attacked at the

Kendal Food Centre in recent

years.

Three offenders, all dressed in

black and covering their faces,

entered the Burnside store at

about 6pm.

The assault was unprovoked.

They left with tobacco and fled

the scene using a vehicle.

St John spokesman Gerard

Campbell said the victim was

taken to Christchurch Hospital

in a moderate condition.

One of the offenders had an

unidentified weapon during the

robbery, but it wasn’t used to

harm the victim, who received

head injuries.

In August 2016, the store

was robbed in a similar

fashion. Three offenders stormed

the store, armed with a gun and

stole cigarette cartons.

Two of the offenders shoved

the owner, Ning Huang,

who was alone, to the back

storeroom, where one of them

punched him.

At the time, Mr Huang said

he feared for his life during the

incident and thought he was

going to be killed.

They then fled the scene using

a vehicle, police believe.

Detective Sergeant Brad

Grainger said inquiries into

Sunday’s incident are ongoing.

Due to the offenders being

covered and the quality of

CCTV footage, Detective

Sergeant Grainger was unable

to provide a description of the

three suspects.

Mr Huang declined to speak

to The Star about the robbery on

Sunday.

On Monday last week, a

Bromley dairy owner was

hospitalised after a masked

robber, armed with a firearm,

entered the Kidbrooke

Convenience store and assaulted

him.

The owner charged at the

robber, who hit him with a blunt

object in the face. The victim

required 20 stitches.

No one has been charged

in relation to the robbery

and police inquiries are

ongoing.

Election bid for

former disgraced

National candidate

• By Sophie Cornish

A FORMER disgraced National

Party candidate is making

another bid to enter politics.

Businessman John Connelly

will stand for the city council in

October’s local body

elections. He will run

in the Riccarton Ward.

In the run up to the

1996 general election,

Mr Connelly pulled

out of the race for a

Christchurch seat after

allegations of a sexual

relationship with a

teenage girl, which

involved a videotape

and blackmail.

Mr Connelly decided to run

in the local body elections after

current Riccarton Ward city

councillor and former mayor

Vicki Buck announced last

month she will not run again.

“Vicki has been around the

town, a good person over the

years and she was never going to

be beaten and that was all about

it,” he said.

Mr Connelly said he is not

happy with the way the city

council is currently operating.

“People are hurting out here;

ratepayers, residents and business

John Connelly

people . . . I think there is other

ways things could be done,” he

said.

“I think what we need is a few

independent people in there.

People that can take some

middle ground. My campaign

will be on responsible

accountability and I will be

running on those sorts of

issues.

“Back to basics and focus

on normal infrastructure,

road, footpaths, rubbish,

sewers, water, parks and

reserves, sustainable and

environmental issues.

We’re not there to grandstand

. . . I am totally

opposed to five years of 10 per

cent rate increases. I don’t think

it’s practical and a major cost to

householders who are having a

hard time as it is.”

Mr Connelly said yesterday

it will be the first time he has

revisited politics since the general

election scandal.

“I think it is time to move

on and do the next thing.

I have years of experience

in Christchurch. That was

something that happened way

back then. Let’s move on.”

Councillors may get childcare paid for

• By Louis Day

RATEPAYER MONEY could

be used to pay for the childcare

of councillors and community

board members.

This comes after a new

policy from the Remuneration

Authority was released at the

start of this month which allows

councils to reimburse elected

members for childcare.

If adopted by a council,

members are

eligible to an

allowance

only if their

child is under

14 and the

childcare is not

provided by a

family member.

Deon Swiggs

Childcare

allowances are

also limited to $6000 a year per

child.

City council secretary Jo Daly

said it would consider adopting

the policy before September.

City councillor Deon Swiggs

thought the policy would be well

supported.

“I would expect our council

to support it and I will be

supporting it myself, not

necessarily for councillors but

for community board members.

It just takes away a bit of a

barrier for people with families,”

he said.

Cr Swiggs did not expect the

policy to lead to a rates increases

should it be adopted.

“I would not expect it to

come from any new money

from rates, I would expect this

to be absorbed from other

funds.”

“We have a catering budget,

news online at www.star.kiwi

do we need a catering budget?

Those are the things I would like

to look at.”

Cr Aaron Keown, who has

three children of his own,

thought city councillors were

earning enough to pay for their

own childcare and community

board members did not need it

due to it being a part-time role.

Councillors are paid $102,400

whereas the pay of community

board members varies between

$9864 and $24,580, chairs of

community boards are paid up

to $49,160.

Cr Keown said it was not

needed in Christchurch but

could be in lower-paid councils

across the country.

Cr Sara Templeton said she

would vote in favour of the

policy and saw it as a small step

to increasing diversity around

the decision table.

Cr Mike Davidson said he was

“open-minded to it.”

The Selwyn District Council

adopted the policy last week.

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall

said he believed the policy would

ruffle feathers and result in

backlash from the community.

There’s always going to be

someone saying, what are they

[the district council] doing? It’s

just a part of the job and I’m just

keen to get more young people

around the table and that is what

this is about,” he said.

March 15 motivates diverse range of

• By Louis Day

THE TERRORIST attack on

March 15 has seen a surge in

people from minority groups

standing for the city council and

community boards in October’s

local body elections.

Canterbury Malaysian

Society president Sam Yau said

a Malaysian Muslim killed in

the attacks played a big part in

his decision to run for the city

council.

Three Malaysian Muslims were

also wounded.

Mr Yau moved to New Zealand

from Malaysia 35 years ago. He

said he wants to be a voice for

migrants across Christchurch.

“We need to have diversity

on the council table so we can

understand each other and

hopefully the events of March 15

will never ever happen again,” he

said.

“We can only hope, of course,

but I believe that would reduce

the possibility.”

He will run as an independent

for the Halswell Ward.

Christchurch Multicultural

Council vice-president Manish

Pandey was born in India and

moved to Riccarton in 2008.

“One guy who died in

the attacks was from my

neighbouring region in India and

obviously that made me think

about this and led to me putting

my name forward,” he said.

Mr Pandey will stand under

The People’s Choice banner in a

bid to win a seat on the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board, representing Riccarton.

Former mayor Garry Moore

was delighted with the diverse

range of candidates standing in

this year’s elections.

“Diversity isn’t important in

politics, it is essential. If you

have got everybody the same, it’s

as boring as

watching paint

dry,” he said.

“People

should

welcome this

and encourage

it. Hopefully,

these people

get elected

on so they

can help their

communities

thrive.”

“We need ethnic faces in

council to tell the council what

these communities need, as well

as telling them what council can

do for them,” he said.

He will also run under The

People’s Choice banner.

Clive Antony, whose parents

Ward city council seat under

centre-right political organisation

Independent Citizens.

He said he was encouraged to

“I think Indian friends and

$1.1m gifted

for long-term

needs of terror

attack victims

MORE THAN $1.1m has been

donated to help support the

long-term needs of victims of the

March 15 terror attack.

In a ceremony with Mayor

Lianne Dalziel yesterday, the

international Jewish community

gifted the money, which will be

known as the NZ Abrahamic

Fund.

Said Ms Dalziel: “The

Christchurch Foundation regard

it as a privilege to act as stewards

for the NZ Abrahamic Fund

on behalf of everyone affected

by the attacks. The world will

remember the response long

after they forget

the name of

the person who

New Zealand Jewish Congregation

spokesman Stephen

Goodman said the Jewish community

are unfortunately, well

aware of the long term needs that

stem from such an attack.

“We see this as something that

can enhance our two communities.

An attack on one faith is an

attack against all faith groups.”

The official ceremony was preceded

by a visit to the Durham

St Synagogue and the Al Noor

mosque.

Speaking at Al Noor Mosque,

Imam Gamal Fouda, who was

leading prayers the day of the attacks,

said the three Abrahamic

religions are very close, and

Judaism and Islam are closest of

all.

“We are siblings. What is happening

in the Middle East is not

about religion, it’s about politics.

People of religion share love and

humanity. New Zealand has

set a good example of love and

compassion. We are a model to

the rest of the world.”

Community advocate dies

A COMMUNITY hero whose

dying wish was to make her

neighbourhood safer has lost her

battle with cancer.

Gillian Sheard, of Richmond,

died on Friday after being diagnosed

about eight months ago.

She was given three to 18

months to live.

Ms Sheard’s plight to make

her community safer resulted

in an upgrade to a pedestrian

crossing on Stanmore Rd, which

she believed was often unnoticed

by motorists. Now dubbed

locally as ‘Gillian’s crossing,’

it was painted bright red by

council staff in a bid to improve

safety.

Last month, The Star reported

Ms Sheard’s determination

Memories of the moon landing:

Sunday will mark the

50th anniversary since

humankind first set

foot on the moon.

Sophie Cornish

reports

WHEN AMERICAN astronauts

Neil Armstrong and Edwin

‘Buzz’ Aldrin touched down on

the moon, one thing was clear.

Just like the universe itself, the

possibilities were endless.

It was July 21, 1969 (NZ time),

when the pioneering Apollo 11

spacecraft and lunar module

achieved the momentous feat,

putting Armstrong and Aldrin

on the moon while Michael

Collins waited in orbit.

It became one of six manned

landings on the moon – the last

being in 1972.

The world stopped and

collectively watched and listened

to Armstrong’s infamous global

announcement: “One small step

for a man, one giant leap for

mankind.”

With no live television feed,

Kiwis tuned in on their radios to

hear the news live.

A delayed television broadcast

came later in the evening – about

four-and-a-half hours after the

landing. A Royal New Zealand

Air Force bomber had delivered

the tape from Sydney.

When they arrived back on

earth, the Apollo 11 crew had to

fill out Customs forms, declaring

their cargo as “moon rock and

moon dust samples.”

They were then quarantined

for 21 days – just in case they

brought back anything

dangerous.

The Star (known then as The

Christchurch Star) was a daily

afternoon paper at the time.

Hundreds lined up outside its

office for a chance to grab the

July 21 edition hot off the press,

hoping to be one of the first to

read about the historic event.

The headline read: “Man on the

moon the eagle has landed.”

The successful moon journey

has produced the most historic

news in the The Christchurch

Star’s history. As a souvenir of

the momentous accomplishment,

The Christchurch Star present this

selection of notable pages,” read

the front page article.

“As the broadcast began, cars

slowed down, many drivers

bent forward to catch every

word on car or transistor radios.

Pedestrians could be seen

standing with a radio pressed

to one ear. Some motorists

pulled to the side of the road to

concentrate on the broadcast.”

It reported the two men

“liked what they saw so much

they decided to venture out on

the surface without taking the

four-hour rest called for in the

flight plan.” The 12-page Moon

Souvenir edition cost 10 cents.

A copy of the newspaper

was posted on Trade Me last

week with an asking price of

$25.

“All 12 pages are there with no

rips or tears. The pages are a little

browned and a bit folded,” said

the seller.

Where were you?

Fred Tunnicliffe remembers

the day of the moon landing.

He was working in the art

department at The Christchurch

Star when the news slowly filtered

around the building.

There were literally hundreds

of people waiting for the paper to

come outside of The Star’s office

to see if there was any photos or

news . . . there were no cellphones,

no computers, no other media

except telephone, radio and TV,

but that was very minor. The

newspapers were very strong,” he

said.

“We were getting a hell of a lot

quite quick information, the odd

photo . . . it was quite amazing

for everyone to think it was going

around the whole world quite

quickly,” he said.

Sir Bob Parker was a 16-yearold

at Cashmere High School.

The former

mayor says he

remembers the

day vividly.

“I can

remember they

played the moon

landing on loud

speakers and

we all went out on the grass and

they played the audio of the men

landing on the moon.

How far have we come

since the moon landing?

•1970: The Soviet

spacecraft, Venera 7,

became the first probe to

land on another planet –

Venus – on December 15.

The probe managed to send

back data about Venus’

temperature, atmospheric

pressure and wind speed

before its signal stopped.

It transmitted information

to earth for 53min, which

included 20min from

the surface, in spite of

its parachute failing on

descent, causing it to slam

into the surface.

50 years since the Eagle landed

HISTORY: Lyttelton’s Fred Tunnicliffe with four posters previewing The Christchurch Star’s coverage of the Apollo 11 mission. (Right) – The Apollo 11

Saturn V rocket on launch pad 39A.

It was being broadcast live

on radio . . . so we all had time

off school and went outside, it

was history. This was the biggest

thing. To even believe that people

could do that, it was amazing. I

can vividly remember that day at

school.

“To believe that humans

in 1969 could do such an

extraordinary thing, it was like

the world was going to change in

that moment.”

Coastal Ward city councillor

David East was a student at

Shirley Boys’ High School at the

time of the event,

which he called

“fascinating.”

Cr East said

the historic

moment was a

memorable one

which you always

remember, along

with events such as Kennedy

being shot in 1963 and former

Prime Minister Norman Kirk’s

death in 1974.

NASA senior engineer and

Canterbury University Erskine

fellow Tim Atkins was a young

boy living in the US at the time.

“As a nine-year old boy, I

watched in amazement with my

family as this history unfolded

on TV. The lunar lander

precariously navigated above the

moon, gently landed, with only a

few seconds of fuel to spare, and

people stepped down a ladder to

its surface.

“America was in a period of

intense national strife, with

internal conflicts against racism

at home, a dubious war abroad,

and reeling from

assassinations. Even

in my youth, I felt the

weight of this. But in

this hot summer month,

people of all races and

political bents came

together to celebrate

this monumental

achievement.

Canterbury University Mt John

Observatory astronomer

Alan Gilmore remembers

hearing ‘the Eagle had landed’

just before he went to work that

day.

“After the landing, there

was a comment from

mission control that the

guys there were turning

blue from holding their

breaths as the lander used

most of its fuel seeking a

suitable landing site. There

was a quip that the astronauts

having to climb into space suits

in the tiny lander was like two

women getting into ball gowns in

a telephone box,” he said.

The 14.6m long space

station had just one

docking port. The first crew

aboard spent 23 days on

the station, but the three

men tragically died on their

way back to earth when

the air leaked out of their

spacecraft.

Bringing diversity to arts

Reporter Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

investigates diversity in

the arts

“WE NEED to diversify the

industry, we need to diversify

audiences and we need to tell

multi-cultural stories.”

That is Showbiz Christchurch’s

general manager Michael Bayly’s

take on the ongoing challenge

the city’s theatre industry is

facing to have diversity in the

performing arts.

The topic emerged after the

company had to run a second

round of auditions for its upcoming

production of Miss Saigon.

Showbiz initially failed to

cast enough male performers

of Asian and Pacific heritage at

its first auditions in May – but

has since found four additional

performers from Vietnamese,

Filipino and Chinese

communities to fill vacant roles.

Mr Bayly said while Showbiz

was aware casting for Miss

Saigon may

have some

challenges, it

was not insurmountable.

“We as an

organisation

are making

permanent

Michael Bayly

moves forward

about the accessibility

casting for Miss Saigon may be challenging but it was not “insurmountable.” The

company last performed the production in 2009.

all aspects of the community.

We encourage diversity which

reflects our community,” he said.

Since the auditions, Showbiz

established a relationship with

the Vietnamese Society of

Christchurch – which includes

refugees who escaped to New

Zealand following the end of the

Vietnam War in 1975.

But other theatre-makers agree

while cultural diversity is a priority

in the arts, it is one of the

biggest issues theatre is facing.

The Court Theatre’s artistic

director Ross Gumbley said the

reality is that you have to search

the country to find appropriate

performers.

“This has always been the case

but we are slowly seeing more diversity

in our talent pool,” he said.

Independent Kai Tahu theatre

maker Juanita Hepi said there

are many barriers to having

diverse voices in the city’s theatre

industry.

This includes outreach, accessibility,

funding, connectivity,

family commitments and talent

retention.

“However the most challenging

barrier will be how we as

individuals and collectively,

respond to the inherent prejudice

and biases that continue to marginalise

diverse performers.”

The dominant discourse in

the arts is elitist, still confined to

the Eurocentric and American

gaze which is a shame because of

the acts of creativity happening

daily in our communities, that

are not celebrated, acknowledged

or funded. Perhaps our gaze

needs to move beyond the horizon,”

Ms Hepi said.

She said there are not enough

opportunities for culturally diverse

shows in the city – and she

wants to see more.

But Mr Gumbley said things

are changing and they need to,

but creating more opportunities

for performers of different

ethnicities is a great conversation

to be having.

“We make it a priority to tell

diverse stories on our stages. It’s

important because Christchurch

has a diverse population and its

important we reflect that.”

In 2016, a controversial review

of Showbiz’ Hairspray hit

headlines over the casting of its

African-American ensemble for

the production.

Canterbury University English

and cultural professor Erin

Harrington, who wrote the review

for online website Theatreview,

said there was “so much to like.”

However, she then wrote: “I can’t

get my head around a production

that can’t see that staging a show

about integration, and that spends

as much time

with its black

cast members as

its white ones,

sees fit to have an

almost entirely

white cast. ’’

Mr Bayly said

he applauded

Erin

Harrington

the opportunity

to have the conversation

about

diversity and

ethnicity on stage, but calling the

cast “almost entirely white” was a

misrepresentation.

He said the cast was made up

of a wide range of ethnicities

including Maori, American-

Indian, African-American and

Korean.

But Dr Harrington told The

Star she wouldn’t change the

review.

She agreed it is important for

theatre to tell stories of diversity

including gender, sexuality, race,

ethnicity, ability and disability.

But Dr Harrington said Hairspray

is specifically about race, exclusion

and civil rights in America.

There has to be a heightened

degree of thoughtfulness regarding

representation, which includes

the history of the play its

themes, as well as the way things

look on stage, which I thought

(and still think) was severely

lacking,” she said.

Dr Harrington said she struggles

to understand why companies

programme work they know

they will struggle to cast in an

ethical manner.

There’s a great phrase that

gets used by people queer communities,

communities of colour,

disability activists and women’s

rights activists – nothing about

us, without us . . . this applies to

theatre, performance and representation,”

she said.

But Mr Bayly said with every

show it casts it has new people

auditioning coming forward it

has never met before.

“We must never anticipate we

are not able to tell those stories.

That would be keeping us closed

within our existing universe or

our existing community. We

are always looking to grow and

broaden our community and tell

a variety of stories from a variety

of points of view.”

But the obstacles theatre

companies face to cast actors

goes beyond the issue of cultural

diversity.

Mr Bayly said it is common for

Showbiz to run two rounds of

auditions – for a range of reasons

– including the availability of

performers and men particularly

over the age of 40.

ALTHOUGH WE won’t see much visible progress

on site until next year, the team reinstating one of

New Zealand’s most significant heritage buildings

and one of our city’s most iconic buildings –

Christ Church Cathedral – is busy with critical

planning behind the scenes before physical work

begins.

“People might be wondering why we haven’t

started physical work. This is a complex and

unique project and we’ve got to get the planning

right,” says Christ Church Cathedral reinstatement

project director Keith Paterson.

Reinstating means a combination of repairing,

restoring, reconstructing and strengthening.

The Cathedral will look very similar, retaining

many heritage features. Importantly, the reinstated

Cathedral will be safer, with base isolation to help

protect against future earthquakes.”

“Right now we’re working out how to efficiently

stabilise and strengthen the building. At the same

time, we’re defining the enhancements required

to ensure the Cathedral is better equipped than

ever for future worship and civic events, while

respecting its heritage. Internally it will be more

functional, more flexible, and more comfortable,

with modern heating, sound and visual systems.

All of those elements need careful planning,” Mr

Paterson says.

The first step is stabilising the damaged building

so it can be worked on.

“We’ll be setting up the site early next year ready

for stabilisation, which will take 12 to 18 months.

Techniques might include supporting the external

walls, propping the internal walls, and installing

supporting frameworks for columns and arches.

After that the main Cathedral structure will be

strengthened, reinstated and reconfigured internally.

news online at www.star.kiwi

Cathedral reinstatement

‘going like the clappers’

This means people won’t see much action on the

Cathedral site this year, apart from maintenance

activities and some investigations.

“In the meantime, we’ve symbolically brought

back the sound of Cathedral bells, which we’ll be

‘ringing’ every Friday lunchtime using loudspeakers.

This is a reminder that this iconic heritage

building will once again be full of people, prayer,

strikes the inside of the bell creating the ring.

I GUESS parenting isn’t

something that actually gets

easier.

There has been a recent change

in the nature of my parenting

experience.

My little girl hit the 18-month

mark last week and it’s like she’s so

much older all of a sudden.

There’s more word-like sounds,

she copies what you do and say

more (got to watch that road rage

swearing) and obviously recognises

words for certain things.

I’ve got a painting in the hall

of a medieval village scene and

Vittoria can point out the dog

if asked. That’s pretty cool. It

involves form recognition, word

recognition and the recognition of

what’s being asked of her.

But pointing out dogs doesn’t

fundamentally change my dayto-day.

What does is the fact that

Vittoria has finally cracked the

ability to climb onto the couch.

Therefore anything else of a

similar height.

That’s fine if I’m nearby but it

severely limits my opportunities

to leave her out of sight for any

length of time.

So there goes a relaxing

morning shower while Vittoria

VITTORIA

& Matt

Forced into eyes on

innocently enjoys Pingu. Who

knows what mischief she could be

getting up to?

I suppose you’d probably think

it would stop me from being able

to duck off to the loo as well, but

then you wouldn’t have a toddler

then would you? They can’t stay

away from an occupied loo.

As much as I’m lamenting

simpler times at home, I’m also

paradoxically super proud of her.

There’s been a couple of “how

did you get there” moments over

the last week, but one sticks out in

particular.

Vittoria’s highchair sits in the

kitchen, mostly unused. Climbing

it seems like a dangerous activity

and it scares the willies out of me

when she tries.

She was in the kitchen with me

the other day, helping me prepare

some food for her. I turned away

from her for mere seconds while

I washed up and in that time she

had climbed up the chair and was

happily sitting in it.

Terrifying.

Eyes on mate, eyes on.

THREE basketballers will get the

chance to learn from Kiwi NBA

star Steven Adams this weekend

in Christchurch.

Cashmere High players Louis

Oskam, St Andrew’s College player

Mac Stodart and Christ’s College’s

Mason Whittaker will also

take part with Cashmere player

Tom Webley selected but unable to

attend through injury.

Oskam was determined to show

off his skills on the court this year.

Now the 18-year-old has been

rewarded for his patience after he

was selected to be part of the Steven

Adams Invitational training session

at Horncastle Arena on Sunday.

The event is a chance for some of

the best secondary school players

in New Zealand to learn from the

Oklahoma City Thunder NBA centre

and other skilled coaches.

Just 12 months ago, Oskam

was selected but missed out on

the camp due to injury. He also

missed Cashmere High’s national

secondary school championship

campaign as well.

Oskam tore the meniscus in his

knee last year and then tore his

MCL at the South Island championships,

which made him miss the

team’s premier tournament.

“In the back of my head I knew I

had next year so I wanted to work

hard to get back,” he said.

The year 13 student, who has

been part of the Cashmere High

senior team for the past four

seasons is determined to finish his

school career on his terms.

“My first reaction was that it

made me really excited and I was

glad to get an opportunity at it

again,” he said.

Oskam said he believes he has

learnt how to use his size to improve

all the areas of his game.

He also takes his leadership role

seriously.

“We have to maintain our

standards and push harder to

be better at nationals, the senior

guys feel a responsibility to keep

improving.”

Oskam hopes training and

learning with top coaches at

the camp will help him achieve

his dream of playing college

basketball in the United States

next year.

ON THE RISE: Cashmere

High’s Louis Oskam has been

selected to take part in the

Steven Adams Invitational

camp at Christchurch’s

Horncastle Arena on Sunday.

UN youth

trip for Villa’s

head girl

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

ONE OF the biggest messages

Villa Maria College’s head girl

Eadaoin Roughan tries to pass

onto her fellow students is to “give

everything a try.”

“Giving it a go won’t hurt anyone,

you can only grow and learn

from it,” she said.

So while Eadaoin, 17, didn’t

know a lot about the United Nation

Youth New Zealand’s Global

Development Tour 2020, she

decided to take her own advice by

applying for the trip.

She is now one of 22 students

from across the country selected

for a month-long tour of Europe

and New York to learn about the

UN’s Sustainable Development

Goals in action.

Eadaoin has been chosen alongside

Lincoln High School’s Maria

Mendoza Nieto and Sujean In of

St Margaret’s College.

The tour, which begins in January,

will see the delegation travel

to London, Rome, Vienna, Berlin

and Paris.

The Sustainable Development

Goals are the UN’s blueprint

addressing global challenges

including poverty, inequality,

climate, environmental

degradation and justice.

OUR PEOPLE – ANDREW CROSSLAND

Life among the birds helps park ranger

Conservationist Andrew

Crossland has been

recognised by Birds New

Zealand with a Robert

Falla memorial award. The

city council park ranger

talks to Louis Day about

how birds have helped

shape his life and career

What exactly does your role

consist of?

A big part of what I do is

habitat development – I don’t

just look at birdlife. The default

is birdlife because we don’t have

lions, tigers and giraffes around

the landscape. But in New

Zealand by default a person who

is a wildlife manager, which is

what I am, goes into birdlife. My

interest is how to develop habitats

or how to recognise habitats that

are of value to wildlife and how

to enhance them and protect

them, and how to manage the

behaviour and activity of people.

So I look at Christchurch as a big

national park and it has layers. It

has got street layers, the factory,

housing, it has also got the parks

and it’s about facilitating wildlife

across the city without annoying

people and without people

annoying them.

Would you say birdlife is one

of your biggest passions in life?

Oh yes, absolutely. It’s a calling.

KEEPING WATCH: Andrew Crossland has been studying

birds since he as a teenager.

It has given me a really good

career and has taken me around

different parts of the world. I

am probably better known in

Indonesia than what I am in New

Zealand because I have done a lot

of exploration over there, and in

some cases, I was the first person

to visit since Marco Polo. Down

in Sumatra, I have identified

huge bird populations people did

not know existed anymore. That

all happened because in 1985 I

found a bird on the estuary in

Christchurch called the asian

wowitcher and, at that time, it

was one of the rarest birds in the

world and it wasn’t really known

where they wintered. They breed

in the Arctic and no one knew

where they went to. I was very

interested in this particular

species and two years later some

scientists surveyed the southern

part of Sumatra and found quite

a few thousand of these birds.

I finished university in 93 and

I found some old World War 2

military maps of the northern

part of Sumatra, about a 1000km

north of where the birds had

been found. So I went to Sumatra

in 94, 96 and 97 and many years

since, and I doubled the world

population of this bird. While I

was doing that I found thousands

of other species of bird that

migrate from northern Asia

down to Indonesia and Malaysia

and also Australia. Some made it

to New Zealand. I found that first

record for New Zealand when

I was 15, and that bird really

changed my life in terms of me

exploring that part of the world. I

speak the language and I met my

wife there and my kids are half

Kiwi and half Sumatra and we

spend a lot of time over there.

Where did you grow up?

I was born in Motueka, but I

grew up in Christchurch. I went

to Linwood Avenue Primary,

Linwood Intermediate, Linwood

High and then Canterbury

University.

How long have you been

involved with birdlife?

I have done it in a few phases.

I started doing this work in 1984

when I was 14-years-old, I think,

and became a consultant for the

council and then I worked as

an ornithologist for the water

services unit from 1997 to

1999, then I went overseas and

I changed careers and was an

embassy officer.

I worked for the New Zealand

High Commission Singapore

and then I returned and I have

been a park ranger since the

end of 2002 till now. So I have

been monitoring wildlife in

Christchurch for 35 years.

What is it you love the most

about your job?

It is great to get paid to do

what I love. It is great to start

on something when you’re a

teenager and get paid to do what

you love to do – not many people

have that privilege. I cruise

around the peninsula all the time

doing wildlife stuff, that’s way

better than working in a factory.

I have worked in a factory, I have

worked in a big flash office and

worn the big expensive shoes,

and now it is great to wear a pair

of shorts and go down to the

bush and the swamp, it’s great.

Why should people care about

birds?

We should care about all of our

indigenous wildlife. They have an

inherent right to live and it is also

a major part of our culture and

birdlife is one of the most visible

parts of our native wildlife.

OUR PEOPLE 21

spread his wings across the globe

Thursday July 18 2019 The Star

I believe all wildlife should be

looked after. Birds also represent

connection throughout the

country with the migration

networks throughout New

Zealand and overseas. Basically,

we have a responsibility to look

after wildlife here and it makes

complete sense to keep an eye

out for it. There is no greater

attraction of looking at colourful

birds in the tree. We share the

planet with these other life

forms and we need to be not

solely focused on our ‘your born,

consume and die’ cycle.

Has local birdlife deteriorated

or improved since you started in

your role?

I really started getting involved

in the major conservation efforts

in 1993. That’s when the wetlands

began to get built and there was a

period of mass innovation and a

lot of investment in the city from

then into the quakes.

There was an incredible

increase of birdlife and pretty

much every species of bird

was increasing until the

quakes. When the quakes hit,

unfortunately there were some

outbreaks of avian botulism and

thousands of birds died over

several years, but we now have

managed to stop that. We have

been very active in combating

that, and last year for the first

time, we had no avian botulism.

What do you see as the biggest

threat to the city’s birdlife?

I think it is human

disturbance. I think that predator

control is important and the

provision of habitat is also

important. But what we are doing

is we are trying to put people

in every space where wildlife

is. Humans have occupied big

chunks of the world but they left

a bit around the fringes, like the

edges of wetlands. But now we

have got adventure sports and

other stuff and we are occupying

them for wilderness cycleways

and other activities and now

we are occupying places where

wildlife has been consigned to,

and we are displacing wildlife. In

Christchurch, there is this sort of

thing where people need to enjoy

the wildlife and the environment,

and that is true, but we need to be

very clever in the way that we are

planning our reserve networks

to make sure every important

site has a sanctuary corner that

is not disturbed. We aren’t doing

enough and so there are some

significant threats to wildlife,

which are almost all to do with

too many people in the wrong

place.

BIRD’S-EYE VIEW: Andrew

Crossland surveying

birds, including the

asian dowitcher, on the

Indonesian island of

Sumatra.

How long did it take you to

learn how to spot a flock of

hundreds of birds and within

seconds identify their species

and accurately estimate their

numbers?

I guess it took a couple of

years to learn the skills. I’m not

the only person who can do

that obviously. When I began

to get into wildlife as a young

guy, before the Department of

Conversation was formed, there

was an organisation called the

New Zealand Wildlife Service

and also the Ornithological

Society, which is now called

Birds New Zealand. There were

a couple of people there that

acted as mentors and gave me the

opportunity to learn the skills

from them and then you quickly

learn stuff yourself, so I’m sort of

self-trained, but certainly rubbed

shoulders with some highlyskilled

people and a lot of that

knowledge has rubbed off on me.

How did you train yourself?

People say to me ‘you know

the name of a whole load of

bird and animal species’, so I

say to them name 50 types of

cars or dogs and they can do it.

Anyone who is interested in a

certain field and wants to gain

skills in that field quickly learns

through motivation and by using

resources. In the wildlife field, we

have field guides and books with

all the species on them and you

learn the field characteristics of

these species and you learn the

calls by simply being out in the

environment. It’s no different to

a car dealer who can name lots of

different types of car.

What was your reaction

to winning the Robert Falla

memorial award?

It is quite a prestigious award,

and normally you get it for a

lifetime achievement. It came out

of the blue and I wouldn’t have

given it to myself until 30 years

time if I even deserved it. It is a

great privilege to get it, it is kind of

just a bit early. Totally unexpected

and kind of overwhelmed by it. I

am sure there are a lot of people

out there who have done more

than me who should have got it

before I got it.

THEATRE/ARTS

news online at www.star.kiwi

Supernatural themes run through dances

WILD: Footnote New Zealand Dance choreographer

Ross McCormack (inset) has used sci-fi films as an

inspiration for dance performance The Clearing.

DO YOU think a dance

performance is simply about the

dancing? Think again, because

the Christchurch Arts Festival is

about to challenge that notion.

Rolling round in pine needles

and watching films may not

be typical preparation for a

dance performance. But for

Footnote New Zealand Dance

choreographer Ross McCormack,

it was the only way to bring a

performance, based in a natural

clearing, to the stage on July 31 for

the Christchurch Arts Festival.

There are so many films with

people getting lost in woods.

Sci-fi loves things in the woods

. . . there is this fascination with

the surreal and the supernatural

colliding with your discovery of

something. So it became fun to

look at the idea of this and how it

could be the inspiration for a piece

of contemporary dance.”

The Clearing is a theatre-based

piece, based on five strangers who

head into a natural clearing.

“It’s a very abstract story,” said

McCormack, and has references

to hunting, being lost or afraid,

animals, land, mystery and the

supernatural.

The performance comes with

subtle environmental messages

“that audience members will

see if they look for them,” said

McCormack.

Getting the performance

festival-ready saw McCormack

and the dance company go into

the woods. “It started by hiring a

van and we drove around to find

some big, open clearings, small

clearings, ones exposed to the

weather and then we came across

some man-made clearings.”

Over seven weeks, McCormack,

composer Jason Wright and the

dancers brought the concept to

life.

The first three weeks were

movie time. We were watching

films every day that took place in

a space.”

Films like Mother! and Stranger

Than Fiction have all played

an influential role in the final

product.

“Some of the dancers even said,

‘I loved that character and I want

to be that character’.”

McCormack returned to New

Zealand in 2016 after more

than a decade spent overseas,

and is now looking forward to

returning to his hometown for the

Christchurch Arts Festival.

“Every time I take something

back to Christchurch, it’s massive

because that’s where I took the

huge plunge into trying to get into

dance and theatre.”

Meanwhile, the musical dance

production Onepū is another

story with a strong Canterbury

connection.

The piece from Māori dancetheatre

company, Atamira, is

based on interviews from the

1920s with Teone Taare Tikao.

Tikao’s great-granddaughter,

Ariana Tikao, has worked with

creator Louise Potiki Bryant (Ngāi

Tahu) to create the soundtrack.

She will perform music for the

production on August 2.

“A lot of the music has been

inspired by his manuscripts,” said

Tikao.

“He has been a real inspiration

to me. It’s very special to see the

work embodied in such a way.

It’s physically brought it to the

current generation.”

Tikao said the story follows six

atua wahine, or female deities and

ancestors, who have control over

the principal winds of the world.

“It’s very evocative and

environmentally-based,” she said.

White to red – season for a change

in brief

Armstrong gathers

valuable F3 points

Marcus Armstrong has taken a

third and a fourth in the latest

round of the 2019 FIA Formula

3 Championship at Silverstone

in the United Kingdom. The

Christchurch racer banked

valuable points for the podium

finish on Saturday in race one,

then moved decisively forward

in the partial reverse-grid race

two to shade the leading three

finishers.

Success for Canty

hockey teams

Canterbury’s under-18 hockey

sides claimed three gold and a

bronze at national tournaments.

The regional boys secured gold

with a 2-1 win over Central in

their final. The association girls

side completed a rare threepeat

by defeating Auckland

in their final. Meanwhile, the

association boys also won gold

by defeating Southern in their

final.

Tennis title boosts

ranking

It was a weekend to remember

for Canterbury tennis juniors.

Reece Falck reached a career

high junior world ranking of

337 after winning his first ITF

singles title in Ho Chi Minh

City, Vietnam. In Brisbane

Diego Quispe Kim won both

the 14s Rod Laver Lead In and

Luck goes New Brighton’s way

• By Gordon Findlater

NEW BRIGHTON’S road

to qualify for this Saturday’s

premier rugby semi-final saw

scenes akin to that on the final

day of an English football

promotion/relegation race.

In Saturday’s final round

match, New Brighton had a slim

chance of making the semifinals.

They needed to defeat

Christchurch at Christchurch

Park and then hope other results

went their way. They took care of

things on their end with a 45-24

bonus point win.

However, they still needed

Shirley to defeat Lincoln University

or High School Old Boys to

win against Marist Albion.

Brighton coach Scott Pawson

had his 13-year-old son Joey

keeping a keen eye on the live

scores from both other games via

the Canterbury Rugby Football

Union’s app. When the final

whistle blew at Christchurch

Park all indications showed that

Pawson’s side wouldn’t be taking

part in the top four.

“We knew that Shirley had

lost and my son told me Marist

were leading, so we knew things

hadn’t gone how we needed them

to,” said Pawson.

The coach then walked to the

middle of the pitch to congratulate

his players on the win, but let

them know it wasn’t enough.

“I told them hard luck boys

we’re not going to be playing in

the semi-finals. Then I saw my

son running over toward us waving

his hands. He told me Old

Boys had scored a late try to win

their game. I said you’re kidding

me,” said Pawson.

A quick phone call was then

made to confirm the result before

the side and their supporters

broke into wild celebrations.

At Bob Deans, Marist looked

like they had booked a semifinal

spot after a strong run

from Elliot Smith led to a late

Moeaki Toma try. However,

Old Boys bashed their way up

to the Marist line and with time

expired a Hail Mary pass from

Lupeti Fihaki picked out replacement

winger Jaron Chamberlain

– who was making his 50th

appearance for HSOB – to score

in the corner.

The try not only saw HSOB

claim the DCL Shield and also

dramatically impact the final

makeup of the semi-finals.

HSOB will now host New

Brighton – who they helped into

fourth spot – this Saturday.

They’re going to be tough to

beat because they’ve played in

semi-finals and finals for the last

few years and we’re still rebuilding

the club to where it used to

be . . . we’ll give it a nudge and

see what happens,” said HSOB

assistant coach Peri Marks.

Meanwhile, the other semifinal

will see four time defending

champions Lincoln University

host Shirley who are making

their first finals appearance in 24

years. The two sides met in their

final round-robin match on Saturday

which Lincoln won 23-15.

Shirley will take confidence

from the way they finished the

match. They trailed 23-3 at

half-time before scoring two

unanswered tries in the space of

five minutes.

Black Caps deserve credit for sportsmanship

THANK YOU Kane Williamson

and the Black Caps for the way

you handled lady luck going

against you on the world’s biggest

stage.

In the years to come your

actions mean that as Kiwis we

can continue to jump on a moral

high horse whenever our mates

across the ditch inevitably return

as powerhouses.

It’s hard to argue that the

six-run overthrow incident with

three balls to play didn’t ultimately

deny the Black Caps a historic

World Cup victory . . . in the

aftermath of this I couldn’t help

but wonder what the Australian

cricket team would have done in

the same situation.

Would cool heads have prevailed

in the most unfortunate

of circumstances and the game

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

have continued in the spirit

cricket likes to pride itself on? Or

would the sandpaper gang have

swarmed the umpires and started

a screaming match until some

sort of ruling was made in their

favour . . . unfortunately we’ll

never know, but I’d bank on the

later.

There’s also the tantalising

thought of Davie ‘dumb dumb’

Warner ending up in a stand-off

with Ben Stokes which likely

would have resulted in the Australian

looking like a homophobe

outside a Bristol club.

We have every right to feel

robbed, but the way we’ve taken

the loss (actually a draw) to England

has been all class.

Yes, the lead story in the evening

television sports news each

night has been highlighting rules

which would give us every reason

to feel outrage.

However, the average cricket

fan in New Zealand has shown

the same class of the Black Caps

themselves and accepted luck just

wasn’t on their side and is looking

to move on.

I was lucky enough to be in

Australia last week to see the

Aussies crash out of the World

Cup and it’s a far different scene.

You could have easily believed

the team was swept under the

carpet or rubbed off like an old

coat of paint being taken to by

a sheet of heavy grit paper from

Bunnings.

Let’s embrace our Black Caps

who gave us the night of our

lives while Australia put shirts of

failure on a clearance sale across

the ditch.

DISCARDED: A shop on

Melbourne’s South Wharf

put Australian cricket shirts

on sale the morning after

their World Cup exit.

Rams title run evokes

memories of 1999 finals

The Canterbury Rams will

take the court at home

this weekend 20 years

after they last hosted

the National Basketball

League final four. Ahead

of their semi-final against

Hawkes Bay on Saturday

and possibly their first

grand-final appearance

in two decades, sports

reporter Gordon Findlater

looks back at the 99 team

local sport

Proudly brought to you by...

Tower JuncTion

Phone: 348 6020 Open 7 days 11am to late www.speightstowerjunction.co.nz

IN 1999 it was a great time to

be a Rams fan. The franchise

hadn’t won a NBL title since

1992 but were given a boost

before the season even began

when it was announced they

would host the final four

tournament at their newly-built

world class stadium now known

as Horncastle

Arena.

Bert Knops

was involved

with the Rams

as either a

player or coach

from 1984 to

1999. He has

Bert Knops

fond memories

of the final four

weekend in 1999, although he

admits their ride to the finals

got off to a slow start and wasn’t

so enjoyable at times.

“It was probably the most

stressful year of my life to be

fair,” said Knops. “Yes, let’s have

the final four in Christchurch

with this nice new stadium, but

of course the pressure was on

to make it, otherwise the whole

thing would have been a flop.”

The Rams played the first

ever sports match in the indoor

stadium, which was the largest

in the country at the time.

They suffered a close loss to

the Wellington Saints 81-86,

which Knops remembers best

for the 30min delay at the start

due to issues getting the new

scoreboard up-and-running.

The 99 Rams featured the

likes of captain Jason Kyle, who

was playing his last season with

the franchise, Dave Langrell,

Rob Hickey, Carlo Varricchio,

CENTRE

STAGE: The

Canterbury

Rams will

hope to

go one

better than

the 1999

side which

hosted the

final four in

1999. ​

IMPORT: Clifton Bush made a name for himself with the

Rams as one of the NBL’s best guards in the late 90s.

Craig Farrant, Rewi Manahi,

Andrew Johnstone, and United

States imports Clifton Bush and

Robert Wilson.

With three games remaining

in the season, the Rams needed

to win them all and hope other

results went their way. An away

win against the Saints, which

saw Wilson score 40 points

and grab 20 rebounds, and

bench-warmer Shane Lawrence

play an impressive 15min, was

instrumental in their finals bid

not turning into a disaster.

The Rams advanced to the

final by defeating a North

Harbour team which featured

a young Kirk Penney. However,

they were no match for the

Auckland Rebels in the final.

The Tab Baldwin coached

Rebels were led by Pero

Cameron, who was in his prime,

Dillon Boucher, Paul Henare

and Kenny Stone.

“We were a very workmanlike

team, as most Rams teams

have been over the years. We

weren’t laden with stars, but

we knew how to get the job

done,” said Kyle, who now has

a landscaping business and

lives in Mandurah, Western

Australia.

“It was a good effort by the

team we had on paper to get to

the finals and put in a pretty

good performance though.”

The loss in the final also

marked the end of an era

with many players, including

Kyle and Knops, moving on

and the Rams coming under

the new ownership of John

Watson.

A strong contingent of the

99 team are expected to attend

this weekend’s finals due

to a fundraising dinner on

Friday for former Ram, Lionel

Hopkins, who is battling cancer.

MULTI-TALENTED: Commonwealth Games gold medalist

Kim Mickle is coaching javelin and AFL in Christchurch.

Aussie gold medal

winner wants to

grow AFL in Chch

• By Gordon Findlater

AUSTRALIAN Commonwealth

Games gold medal javelin

thrower Kim Mickle has two

dream goals in Christchurch. To

get someone to the Olympics and

to set up a women’s AFL league in

the city.

Mickle, 34, is best known for

winning gold in the javelin at the

2014 Glasgow Commonwealth

Games. She moved to

Christchurch in 2017 and has

been working as a contracted

throw coach at Athletics New

Zealand. However, she is now

also passing on skills in her other

favourite sport Australian rules

football.

Mickle grew up in Perth

wanting to play AFL but, at the

time, there was no pathway for

girls looking to pursue it seriously

so she instead turned to athletics.

However, following the 2016

Rio de Janeiro Olympics, Mickle

signed a professional contract

with the Fremantle Dockers to

play in the inaugural season of

the AFL Women’s league in 2017.

Her spell in the sport only lasted

two games after sustaining a

ruptured ACL.

Mickle is now hoping to

unearth a future AFLW star

in Christchurch after recently

coming on board as a coach at the

Christchurch Bulldogs club.

“Women’s footy in Australia

is getting huge. I thought it

would be kind of cool to try and

boost AFL here in New Zealand

because I think it’s a great sport,”

said Mickle.

Last year a crowd of 53,000

attended the AFLW final between

the Adelaide Crows and Carlton

at Adelaide Oval.

She first found out about AFL

clubs in Christchurch through

fellow Australian Dale Stevenson,

who coaches Tom Walsh.

Stevenson played a number of

seasons for the Bulldogs.

“He rang up and said the

Bulldogs are here, they’re a great

club and would you like to be

involved?” said Mickle.

The Bulldogs are made up of

players who have moved across

the ditch and former rugby union

players looking to learn a new

code.

“We’ve got a few rugby players

that want to throw the ball like

a rugby pass, so the challenge of

making people AFL-smart and

not just footy-smart is quite a

challenge,” said Mickle.

A big adjustment for people

who have played rugby is

becoming accustomed to the 360

degree awareness of what is going

on around them, she said.

“In AFL you can be tackled

from any direction, whereas in

rugby the impact is usually from

in front of you.”

Much like the challenge of

selling her beloved AFL to a

rugby happy crowd, Mickle also

says boosting the popularity of

javelin with young athletes in

Christchurch has been a challenge

too. “In Australia, it’s booming,

but here obviously everyone

wants to be a shot-putter like Tom

Walsh or Valerie Adams.”

CARLTON REDCLIFFS and Southern

United took the spoils in the Porritt Cup

grand-finals at Nga Puna Wai over the

weekend.

In the women’s final, Carlton Redcliffs

and Harewood – both without a number

of under-18 reps – played out a goal-fest.

Carlton Redcliffs dominated the early

stages of the match and found themselves

6-2 up at half-time.

But Harewood fought back in the third

quarter to narrow the gap to 8-6 heading

into the final quarter.

Harewood pushed for victory, but

Carlton Redcliffs proved too good,

winning 10-6 to take back-to-back titles.

In the men’s final, Avon and Southern

played out a back and forth match, which

saw Avon hold a slim 3-2 lead heading into

the final quarter.

Chiselled design

for Lexus UX

IF YOU WANT something

out of the mainstream and

styling is important in your

decision, then the new

Lexus UX range should be

a consideration.

The UX oozes style, it has

market.

are on offer, and they look

just great and feel even

better to be in. The layout

of the controls and dash

models, the materials are

high grade, and there is a

wealth of functions and

specification items.

Importantly, for me, the

UX is a fine combination of

what small families would

require in an SUV purchase

along with the feel and

performance you can expect

from the brand overall. It’s

no sports car, but it does

have a feel-good factor from

behind the wheel and, as

I’ve eluded to, it looks great.

Not only will the UX

have an internal battle in

terms of sales, the NX and

RX series from the same

stable are crossover models

which have commanded

a good part of the luxury

SUV market, it will also

have to battle Toyota’s new

RAV4 and other mid-size

stalwarts.

However, given the UX

price positioning and

choice within the series it

will be popular for those

who want a taste of luxury

and a bold presence.

Winter conditions require

different techniques

TYPICAL winter

conditions now dominate

with frosts, chilly prevailing

winds, wet and cold soil –

hardly inviting gardening

weather.

However, the gloom of

winter is ‘lightened’ by the

appearance of flowers on

azaleas, camellias, daphne,

early flowering rhododendrons

and the first of the

flowering cherries ‘Prunus

campanulate’.

Houseplants

A reminder not to overwater

your houseplants in

winter, some plants require

watering only once a week.

A light misting of indoor

plants with lukewarm water

helps prevent leaves from

drying in heated indoor

conditions, you may need

to shift your houseplants

during the winter months

as parts of the house

can become too dark for

healthy growth.

Vegetable garden

Continue harvesting

winter maturing vegetables,

artichoke (Jerusalem),

broccoli, brussells sprouts,

cabbages, cauliflowers, carrots,

celery, leeks, lettuce,

parsnips, peas, silverbeet,

spinach and swedes. Spread

compost around maturing

vegetables as this helps

absorb excess water during

winter downpours and

eventually improve the soil.

By raising vegetable plots

drainage is enhanced and

vegetable growth improved.

Flowering annuals

Winter flowering annuals

should now be providing

masses of colour in your

garden and containers. Remove

dead flowers, ‘deadheading’

from the plants

to encourage continuous

blooming throughout

winter. Flowering annuals

for winter display include

Should I sell my house

by myself?

Selling a property is easy, right? All

you need to do is stick a ‘for sale’

sign out front, put a few photos

online and hold a couple of open

homes. Job done! Why wouldn’t

you do it yourself?

The fact that private sales made

up just 10 per cent of all residential

property sales in New Zealand in the

year to July (down from 13 per cent in

2017 and 17 per cent in 2014) might

be a clue that it’s not as simple and

straightforward as you might think.

Research by the industry membership

organisation Real Estate Institute of

New Zealand (REINZ) found that the

median price for properties sold by real

estate agents was 10.9 per cent higher

than private sales.

“Property transactions are big

financial deals and they can get

complicated very quickly,” says Real

Estate Authority chief executive Kevin

Lampen-Smith.

“Selling a home, which is likely to

be your biggest asset as well as being a

physical and emotional roof over your

head, is not like selling a used car or

flogging your unwanted Christmas

presents on TradeMe.”

If you decide to sell your property

privately, you will absolutely save on the

commission that you’d otherwise pay a

real estate agent,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Your target is to get at least close to

what an agent would get for your house.

You pay commission to an agent for

them to get the best price and that extra

value is what they will tell you pays your

commission for you, along with less

hassle on the DIY front.”

You know your property better than

anyone, so you’re in a good position to

‘sell’ its features. You’ll have complete

control over the process because you’ll

be dealing directly with potential

buyers. You get to decide every step

of the process, including choosing the

method of sale and setting the price.

However, with complete power comes

complete responsibility, Lampen-Smith says.

“When you’re selling a property, you

have a legal obligation to share all the

relevant information about it, such as

any issues with the boundary or title, any

unconsented building work or alterations,

any known weathertightness issues

and whether there are any proposed

developments that could have an impact

LIFESTYLE PROPERTIES

on a buyer’s access, views or enjoyment.

“If you fail to do this, you could

be in breach of your agreement with

the buyer. This could put the sale in

jeopardy, or the buyer could seek

compensation and take you to court.”

Lampen-Smith says would-be private

sellers will need sharp marketing and

negotiation skills, as well as the ability to

be objective.

“What you think of the property and

what it’s worth won’t necessarily be

shared by potential buyers,” he says.

“It’s easy to sell a property when there

are a few houses for sale and many buyers,

but the market isn’t as buoyant now in

parts of the country as it was a year ago.

Your expectations of price and ease of sale

are aligned with market conditions. These

are things that real estate agents think

about day in and day out.”

If you’re still keen to DIY it, make

sure you’ve got some good advice from

the experts.

“It can be very useful to get an

independent assessment of what your

property is worth, so you can work out

the price you’ll be willing to accept,”

Lampen-Smith says.

“You can research online (for free)

or pay for a registered valuation. We

strongly recommend that you use a

lawyer or conveyancer to handle all the

legal documentation, including the sale

and purchase agreement. You may also

want to consider help when it comes

to preparing the property for viewings,

whether that means engaging a home

staging company who will make it look

pretty, or a trusted friend to run any

open homes.”

Ultimately, there’s no reason why you

can’t sell your own property if you think

you’ve got the time, skills and energy.

You’ll need to be ready to juggle a lot

of things at once – including marketing

and negotiation – on top of your usual

responsibilities. Whatever you do, make

sure you go into the process with your

eyes open.
