Inmate

with

AK47

after

bailed for

funeral

• By Sophie Cornish

AN INMATE given court bail to

attend a funeral went on the run

and was later found in a motel

unit with a banned high-powered

military-style semi-automatic rifle

and other weapons.

The 36-year-old is now back in

custody after police raided a motel

in St Albans where it is alleged

he had an AK47 assault rifle, two

12-gauge shotguns, two .22 calibre

rifles and more than 100 rounds

of ammunition.

He was also charged with possession

of methamphetamine, a

glass pipe for consuming methamphetamine,

possession of cannabis

for the purpose of sale and

supply, and failure to assist with a

search warrant.

The AK47 was banned in the

aftermath of the March 15 terror

attacks in Christchurch.

He will appear again in the

district court on Tuesday.

The Star has learned the

36-year-old failed to return to

prison in early May after being

given bail to leave prison to attend

a funeral in Wellington.

THE START of spring will be a

little more wintry than normal.

National Institute of Water

meteorologist Ben Noll said it

will be a sluggish start to spring.

He said in spite of moments

where it will feel like spring, it

will be short-lived as “warmth

He said residents

may want

to keep a heightened level of

awareness of weather patterns as

there may be chilly spells which

could even bring in snow.

Mr Noll said it was too early to

predict the rainfall beyond the

next few weeks.

In spite of more than 600

sunshine hours, last year’s

average spring temperature of

11.2 deg C made Christchurch

the coolest of the main cities,

and the 218mm rainfall was

considered well above normal.

Arrest made after

A 21-year-old man has been

arrested after a stabbing at an

NEO-NAZIS ARE selling

hardcover copies of the accused

mosque shooter’s hate-filled

manifesto online.

A far-right message board on

an encrypted instant messaging

site is selling the banned racist

document for US$4 (NZ$6.23).

The alleged gunman released

the rambling 87-page screed on

March 15 just moments before

the shootings which claimed

51 lives. It was posted on the

notorious 8chan website, which

is known as one of the darkest

corners on the internet.

New Zealand’s chief censor

has classified the manifesto as

objectionable. Anyone found to

be distributing it in New Zealand

could face up to 14 years in

prison, or a $10,000 fine.

While a 28-year-old Australian

national remains in a

maximum-security Auckland

prison awaiting trial, his banned

rants are being pushed on a

Ukrainian right-wing internet

channel created two days after

the mass shootings. It has more

than 1000 subscribers with its

admin user calling themselves

‘Hitler Himself’.

The channel features vile white

supremacy messages, memes and

videos and openly encourages

violence against people of colour

and Jews.

The admin says he was

inspired by the alleged killer

and wants to “maximise the

manifesto and everything related

to it”.

It is pictured alongside images

of guns, Hitler, and the former

Nazi leader’s own anti-Semitic

manifesto Mein Kampf.

On May 15, the administrator

says he was working on printing

out the document for widespread

dissemination. “I do not make

money on this. If someone

doesn’t have shekels to spare –

take the layout and print this out

on your own, not a problem,” the

channel admin wrote.

The idea is to give paper

versions to everyone in a row, on

birthdays, wedding anniversaries

and baptisms of children. In

the first place, the inhabitants,

to open their eyes to our cruel

world.”

And on August 10, he boasts

of sending eight books to new

owners. The March 15 so-called

manifesto has allegedly inspired

other attacks around the world

in recent months, including at a

Californian synagogue in April

and this month at an El Paso

Walmart and a mosque in

Oslo.

The admin also encourages

people to write to the alleged

shooter in prison, and gives an

address where correspondence

can be sent.

An electronic copy of a letter

purportedly sent by the accused

from behind bars has also been

posted to the site.

Last week when it emerged

that the defendant was corresponding

with the far-right from

prison it drew criticism for the

Department of Corrections.

Christchurch white supremacist

Philip Arps, jailed for sharing

the mosque shooting video,

also had wrongly been allowed

to send his own “vile” letter to

a media organisation, it was

revealed last week.

current processes for reviewing

LOGISTICAL ISSUES may

be considered in the decision

to move the March 15 accused

gunman’s trial out of the city,

says a high-profile Christchurch

lawyer.

But the extra costs associated

with moving the High Court trial

won’t be a factor in the decision

which will be made by Justice

Cameron Mander, said Nigel

Hampton QC.

“Justice isn’t

a commodity, it

can’t be bought

or sold either

way. That will

not feature in

the decisionmaking

process

regarding

change of venue

. . . the

requirements

of justice would trump the cost

aspect,” he said.

Earlier this month, defence

lawyers for the accused shooter,

Shane Tait and Jonathan Hudson,

applied to change the venue of

the trial.

The accused denies 51 charges

of murder, 40 charges of

attempted murder and a charge

under the Terrorist Suppression

Act for the attack at the two

mosques on March 15.

Mr Tait and Mr Hudson have

not publicly stated the reasons for

the application.

By law, a trial must take place

in the nearest court to where the

alleged crime took place.

However, if the defence can

prove there may be a risk of the

accused not getting a fair or

impartial trial, due to a reason

such as adverse publicity, it can

be argued that a change of venue

should take place.

Mr Hampton believes the

Crown prosecution may face

logistical issues if the trial is

moved out of Christchurch.

This will include organising

the travel and accommodation

victims of the attack, first

bevy of witnesses that are going

to be juggled and that’s a factor

that the Crown might say should

come into the balance as well in

weighing up whether to change

the venue or not,” said Mr

Hampton.

The defence could argue due

to the publicity around the

event, there may be some undue

prejudices attached to or against

the trial rights of the accused.

“Given the degree of publicity

up and down the country, let

alone the rest of the world, it’s a

wee bit hard to see this would be

objectively strong.

“If they want to resist it, Crown

would suggest that in these highprofile

cases that it doesn’t matter

a damn whether it’s Invercargill

or Whangarei, everyone in this

country knows all about this

particular event,” he said.

The trial is expected to start in

May next year and could last six

to 12 weeks. The start date may

also be delayed by three or four

weeks.

The change of venue will be

argued on October 3.

Gifts the police get but can’t

• By Sophie Cornish

WHAT DO a $500 Cartier

diamond pen, NRL match

tickets, a traditional Maori

weapon and a small box of

condiments all have in common?

All were part of more than 200

presents gifted to police in the

past year, listed on a gift and hospitality

register released annually.

The gifts are largely either accepted,

declined or donated to

charity and all must be in line

with police’s official policy on

gifts, discounts and hospitality.

Those doing the gifting range

widely from individuals to gangs

and international Government

agencies, such as the Chinese

Embassy, Ministry of Foreign

Affairs of Japan and the United

States Air Force Office of Special

Investigations.

Staff from the Canterbury district

received more than 30 gifts

in the past year, many of which

were in response to the March 15

terror attack.

In June, a case of traditional

opera figures from the Christchurch

Chinese Consulate were

gifted and accepted, along with

tea pots and tea, which were

given to charity.

A framed certificate of appreciation

and fabric was gifted from the

Linwood Islamic Charitable Trust

and district commander John

Price received a tie and cuff link set

from the city council in May.

Natural medicines to the value

of $10000 were gifted to the district

rehabilitation co-ordinator,

but were declined.

Tickets to events are often

gifted but not usually accepted.

In the past year, Canterbury

Police were offered tickets and

hospitality from the Crusaders

and 30 NRL match tickets to the

Warriors v Sea Eagles in Christchurch,

but the gifts were declined.

Float therapy vouchers valued

at $300 and 200 movie vouchers

were accepted, but subsequently

donated to charity.

In March, the Saudi Arabian

government gifted a $500 Cartier

pen to a protection officer, which

was accepted and a donation was

made to charity, in recognition of

the gift.

Police gift and hospitality

report is 11 pages and details the

rules and regulations for all police

employees when offered gifts.

It states employees have to play

a part in upholding integrity

and must not be influenced (or

create the perception of being

influenced) when performing

their duties, by either directly or

indirectly soliciting or receiving

any gift, discount or hospitality.

“Gifts or hospitality can be

offered for various reasons –

both well-intentioned (to show

appreciation, or as part of a

ceremonial occasion) and less

well-intentioned (as an attempt

to gain favour). The best way of

avoiding any perception of influence

would be to refuse all offers

of gifts and hospitality. However,

this is not always workable in

practice,” it states.

When deciding whether or

not to accept a gift, factors that

must be considered include, the

ability to demonstrate continuing

impartiality, in both operational

and non-operational matters, the

possibility of reputational risk

and the potential that accepting

a gift, discount or hospitality

will negatively impact on police’s

standing within the community.

For events, invitations should

only be accepted where a benefit

to police, not just the individual

can be shown.

VOTING ON the controversial

childcare policy which would see

city councillors and community

board members’ childcare

paid for by ratepayers has been

delayed.

City councillors were to

have voted before the end of

this month on the issue.

However, the city council is now

unsure whether it will happen

before or after October’s elections.

If adopted by the council,

councillors and community

board members would be eligible

to an allowance only if their

child is under 14 and the childcare

is not provided by a family

member.

Childcare allowances are

also limited to $6000 a year per

child.

City councillor Aaron Keown

saw the delay as a “political

sidestep.”

He thought the vote could

be being delayed to protect

councillors from scrutiny before

October’s elections.

“I think it is one of those

things that they are wanting to

avoid prior to the election.

“It does feel like a dodge,” he

said.

However, city councillor James

Gough did not think this was

the case.

“I have been around long

enough to know that there is

a mad rush of reports that are

meant to come to council but don’t

quite make it during this time,

there is a real push to get decisions

made and tabled before the end of

the election cycle,” he said.

Both Cr Keown and Cr Gough

told The Star they were not

supportive of councillor and

community board members’

childcare being paid for by

ratepayers.

Simon O’Neill in Concert with

Woolston Brass – Fundraising Concerts

Proudly sponsored by John Rhind, international

superstar tenor Simon O'Neill joins Christchurch's

iconic Woolston Brass under the direction of Music

Director Tyme Marsters to perform tenor classics and

raise funds for the band’s future home.

New Zealand born, Simon O'Neill has established

himself as one of the finest helden-tenors on the

international stage. He has frequently performed with

the Metropolitan Opera, the Royal Opera House,

Covent Garden, Berlin, Hamburg and Bayerische

Staatsopern, Teatro alla Scala and the Bayreuth,

Salzburg, Edinburgh and BBC Proms Festivals,

appearing with a number of illustrious conductors.

The Woolston Brass Band has been in existence for

128 years and is the most successful and recognised

band in New Zealand. Woolston Brass consists of over

thirty musicians drawn from a variety of professions

and ages brought together by a creative talent for

making music. The band has remained true to the

ideal expressed in its Maori motto, Tohea kia kaha

The Wagnerian tenor of his generation”

advertorial

(Persevere, so there is Strength).

The band's existing hall on Dampier Street has

been used since 1961 and is no longer fit for purpose,

damaged from the earthquakes and is earmarked for

demolition. Significant fundraising is now sought to

rebuild this rehearsal facility on Dampier Street that

will host the award-winning Woolston Brass and their

Academy.

Simon O’Neill is proudly donating his voice to help

Woolston Brass raise funds for the new band hall. The

fundraising concerts being held Friday 8 November

at the Christchurch James Hay Theatre and Sunday 10

November at the Ashburton Trust Event Centre will

feature tenor classics such as traditional Irish ballad

Danny Boy (Londonderry Air), Caruso written by

Italian composer Dalla, the famous Swedish Folk Song

(How Great Thou Art) and the iconic aria Largo Al

Factotum from Rossini’s opera The Barber of Seville.

Young myth busters: Cracking the

Conspiracy theories,

fake news, true or false?

These are the questions

a class of secondary

school students are

pondering over. Sophie

Cornish reports

THERE IS a big difference

between convincing your teacher

the dog ate your homework and

persuading them the earth is flat.

What about debating with your

school principal that the country

of Australia doesn’t actually exist?

Highly unlikely.

But for a group of Canterbury

secondary school students,

believing the impossible could

actually be possible is what is

helping them gain their NCEA

qualifications.

This year, a group of 50 students

have delved deep into the

most mind-bending theories

known to man and been forced

to argue they contain truths.

The debating assessment,

where students were given a

conspiracy to argue for or against

is part of Rolleston College’s intriguing

new class – conspiracy.

Students are taught to critically

think and question what they

read with a discerning eye, all

while gaining both literacy and

science NCEA credits.

In an age of ‘fake news’ and

unlimited information at their

fingertips, three students, Samuel

Pearson, Joy Su and Ethan

Richards-White, say the class

has prompted new discussions in

their lives and taught them how

to question fact from fiction.

The most widely-debated theories

are covered including 9/11,

the moon landing, Illuminati and

the earth being flat.

However, more modern, controversial

and eye-brow raising

discussions also take place in the

classroom.

Do vaccines cause autism? Has

the cure for cancer already been

discovered? Does eating meat

cause cancer?

Split into two components, the

SLOAN

class has just completed the literacy

course and will soon move

into the science assessments.

For literacy, students were

required to create a visual text

which reflected the conflicting

views of a conspiracy.

For Samuel, he showed the contrasting

belief that secret group,

Illuminati, is the higher controller

of the our existence, while Joy

and Ethan debated the theory of

aliens, whether they control us or

are living in the highly-classified,

Area 51.

Along with this, a publicspeaking

assessment saw the class

be divided into groups and given

a topic and viewpoint, which they

were required to debate, all while

being judged by their principal,

Steve Saville.

At first, Joy seemed disappointed

she was given the task

of arguing that vaccines cause

autism.

But, delving into medical

research for the debate made her

realise she may consider medicine

as a career path in future.

“Trying to understand every

medical term was hard. It has

made me more curious about

medicine. It (the class) helps you

to see what your interests are,”

she said.

conspiracy theories

Ethan admitted he got a little

bit sceptical with his debate topic.

“I did the earth is flat, on the affirmative

side. Actually, we won.

Mainly because I bombarded

them with a lot of facts

. . . I got a little bit convinced that

the earth was flat for a bit there,

mainly because I dived deep into

the Flat Earth Society and stuff

and I was like ‘hold on’ . . . but no

. . . I believe that it is round, but

somehow we won that debate,”

he said.

After discussing conspiracies

with his dad, Samuel thought he

would choose the class, to put

an interesting spin on learning

literacy.

“I was looking at something

different; I thought it would be

an interesting thing to look into.

It was things I was in to, writing,

reading, researching, as well as

the science part of it.

“Now, when I see an article

about someone who believes in a

conspiracy theory, because of this

class, you can see that perspective

more. You realise they aren’t just

being funny or seeking attention,

they actually believe this kind of

stuff and you can see if from their

point of view,” he said.

GREAT CONSPIRACY

THEORIES

1. Illuminati controlling

the world – this conspiracy

proposes a secret group

called Illuminati has been

controlling the world and

is looking to create a one

world government. Their

end goal is supposedly to

create the New World Order,

which will dissolve national

boundaries and people’s

identities, while allowing for

total authoritarian control. It

is alleged several politicians

and celebrities are in the

group, including Beyonce,

Jay-Z and Madonna.

2. The moon landing was

a cover-up – Fifty years on,

the hoax theory still exists.

Some people believe the

significant scientific and

political achievement

did not happen and

that its appearance was

orchestrated by NASA

and the United States

Government. The motive,

as part of the Cold War,

was allegedly done to raise

national pride and one-up

their arch-rival, the Soviet

Union, and win the Space

Race. The most common

theory which leads people

to believe it was fake was

photos from the mission

which show a flag moving

in the wind, something that

should not happen as there

is no wind in space.

3. Who killed JFK? – The

assassination of American

president, John F. Kennedy

– A large national survey

in the United States in

2013 found 51 per cent of

Americans believe there

was a conspiracy behind

the killing of JFK during a

motorcade in Dallas in 1962.

The shooter, Lee Harvey

Oswald, got the official

blame. However, theories

believe other parties such

as the CIA, KGB or the

Mafia, may have played a

role. Other theories suggest

there was more than one

gunman and that more

shots were fired than

officially claimed. Possible

motives include the Bay of

Pigs invasion, a failed US

military invasion of Cuba

by the CIA or that his death

was at the request of vicepresident,

Lyndon Johnson.

4. Was 9/11 an inside

job? – The terror attack on

September 11, 2001, caused

one of the most popular

and widely-discussed

conspiracy theories. Multiple

theories of the event have

been discussed, mainly

implicating the United

States’ Government as

causing the attacks in order

to blame al-Qaeda and start

war with Iraq. Theories claim

jet fuel from the planes

could not melt the steel

beams of the World Trade

Centre towers, which they

believe was actually brought

down by a controlled

demolition.

5. The elusive Area

51 – Conspiracy theorists

believe that the remains of

crashed UFO space crafts

are stored at Area 51. The

highly-classified mysterious

Air Force base in Nevada, is

where Government scientists

allegedly reverse-engineer

the aliens’ advanced

technology. The theories

have come from a variety

of supposed UFO sightings

in the area and testimony

from a retired army colonel,

who says he was given

access to extra-terrestrial

materials gathered from an

alien spacecraft that crashed

in Roswell, New Mexico, in

1947. Some believe that the

Government studies time

travel at Area 51, also known

as Groom Lake.

THE NUMBER of women

running for the city council is

declining.

Seven out of 46 candidates

per cent of the total number of

This is a decrease from the

campaign, I had people comment

After Cr Templeton was

about being run over and having

There is a difference between

she said.

“Women candidates are

THIS IS what Lyttelton’s new

Collett’s Corner will look like

when it opens in 2022.

New images show the 2710

sq m, two-storey building set for

London St, which will include

a wellness centre, community

concierge, hospitality, retail, coworking

space

and apartments.

Ohu Development

is behind

the project,

and ran New

Zealand’s first

crowdfunding

campaign to help

pay for it.

During the

five-week campaign, 370 people

invested a total of $504,000.

As the minimum goal of

$300,000 was met, the project

could go ahead. However, because

the $2 million target was

not met, the opening was pushed

back from 2020 to 2022.

Ohu Development founding

partner Camia Young said in order

to raise the remaining funds

the business will take on a bank

loan and look into further equity.

Meanwhile, developers and local

real estate agent Vicki Tahau

Paton are aiming to seek tenants

interested in leasing commercial

spaces and residents to buy

apartments in September.

The majority of the building

must be either pre-leased or presold

in order for developers to

take on a bank loan.

The basement will be home

to the wellness centre, which is

envisioned to have hot and cold

baths, a sauna, a steam room and

therapy rooms.

On the ground floor, there will

likely be a gym, retail, hospitality

and consultation rooms.

On floors one and two, there

will be 18 studio apartments

and eight single-bedroom apartments,

and a rooftop terrace will

be exclusive to residents.

Those wanting to buy look at

paying between $420,000 and

Lyttelton complex designs released

Young

DESIGNS: New images show what the planned Collett’s Corner, Lyttelton, complex and

apartments will look like.

$590,000 depending on the size

and location of the space.

Lyttelton Residents’ Association

chairman Ken Maynard

said he was concerned the complex

was not aimed at locals.

“It’s a fairly personal opinion,

not one for the association . . .

but I don’t think this is what we

needed,” he said.

“It’s quite big, it’s taller than

the other buildings in the street

and I thought one of the features

which was going to be attractive

was the roof garden – but its

actually for the tenants.”

Founding partner Camia

Young said she would have loved

for the rooftop to be open to the

public, however, the city council

“would never allow it” due to

health and safety requirements.

“That was one of the major issues

that was in the city council

requirements for the rooftop

terrace,” Ms Young said.

Resource consent is now pending

for the new designs, which

were modified after the city

council requested changes.

“I’m dancing with every policy

and requirement out there,” she

said.

Samoa police

being reviewed

by city cop

• By Sophie Cornish

CANTERBURY’S top cop is

conducting a review of the police in

Samoa after its police commissioner

faced more than 200 criminal

charges, including inciting murder.

Superintendent John Price will

wrap up the review and return to

his normal role as Canterbury district

commander next month.

Samoa Police Service commissioner

Fuiavailili Egon Keil was

suspended in August 2016 after four

criminal charges were laid against

him, including the unlawful use of

weapons, as well as the unlawful

arrest of a man.

The charges were dismissed two

months later due to insufficient

evidence and he was reinstated.

He was then arrested again in

the same month, on more than

200 charges, following a separate

investigation, including charges

of possession of illegal firearms and

one of inciting murder.

In February 2017, all charges were

dropped, by the Supreme Court of

Samoa, due to insufficient evidence.

The Attorney-General had hired a

private prosecutor, Christchurchbased

Nigel Hampton QC, who

asked the court to withdraw the

charges due to reasons relating

to witness interviews and lack of

appropriate legal advice, that was not

sought before the charges were laid.

OPINION 17

When bank robberies were the norm

THE ROBBERY of Kiwibank in

Parklands last week was sort of a

blast from the past.

Bank hold-ups, thankfully,

are relatively uncommon these

days. Dairies are now a primary

target, usually by teenagers in

groups after cigarettes, cash and

anything else they can grab.

But there was a time when

banks and the security vans

which would pick up and drop of

large amounts of cash were the

targets.

Most of the robbers who

targeted banks were wellorganised,

experienced

criminals, often linked to gangs,

and armed with cut down

shotguns or rifles. An influx of

drugs, particularly cocaine, was

often the reason for the need for

lots of quick cash.

The robbers knew what they

were doing and getting in and

out as quickly as possible without

incident was paramount – but

that was no consolation for the

terror endured by bank staff,

customers and security guards.

There were also the lone wolf

From the

editor’s desk

Barry Clarke

robbers. One individual stole the

same motor-cycle parked in the

central city on two occasions to

rob banks. He was believed to

have been a fairly well-known

sportsman at the time, but police

were never able to get enough

evidence to arrest him.

Then there was the guy

disguised in a clown mask

who shot himself in the foot,

figuratively speaking.

Armed, he turned up at a

Stanmore Rd, Richmond, bank

– minutes before it was due to

open. He couldn’t get in. Threats

and gesturing didn’t convince

the staff to open the main door.

He fled on foot, dropping the

mask as he ran. Police caught

him soon after.

And then there was the late

Wayne Beri, prime suspect for

the Aulsebrooks payroll robbery,

and an individual who spent

most of his adult life in prison

(where he died of a heart attack)

for drug dealing.

Beri had been released on

work parole into the sponsorship

of someone police also kept a

fairly close eye on. How that was

signed off is anybody’s guess.

Police began to bug phones

after hearing through the

grapevine Beri’s time on work

parole could be put to another

use – robbery.

Security vans delivering

and picking up money from

Christchurch banks were

believed to be the target.

During the bugging, they

also picked up something more

sinister: Police heard a man

who had known Beri from years

before asking him to murder his

wife.

Most people just get divorced.

Police swooped, numerous

people were arrested, including

the woman’s husband, and the

intended victim was put into

a place of safety. Police were

later unable to proceed on the

attempting to procure a murder

charge in court on a technicality.

The evidence from the bugging

was ruled inadmissible and the

husband walked free.

A few years later, when I was

interviewing Beri by phone from

prison for a life and times of

Wayne Beri-type article, I asked

him if he would have killed the

woman: “No,” he said sharply.

“But I might have burnt her

house down.” Mmm.

During the interview, he did

reveal he once held up a bank in

Sydney – while on a sports trip.

Beri was a good rugby league

player here in Christchurch, and

his club side went across the

Tasman on an end-of-season

type trip.

While his teammates were

elsewhere, Beri told me he held

up the bank. He went straight to

the counter, was very aggressive,

made out he had a weapon and

was out with the cash in super

quick time.

But one of the more audacious

bank heists here in Christchurch

I can recall wasn’t actually a

robbery. A man dressed as a

security guard went into a bank

just before a scheduled pick

up. He was so plausible and

convincing, bank staff handed

him the cash. He calmly walked

out of the bank and he and the

money were never seen again.

That’s planning.

Maternal drug use study reveals

poor outcome for children

• By Jess Gibson

INCREASED OPIOID and other

drug use by pregnant women is

affecting children’s readiness for

learning when they start school,

new research has discovered.

Canterbury University

professor Lianne Woodward

has recently completed a fiveyear

study looking into the

development of babies affected

by their mothers’

drug use.

Prof

Woodward

studied 100

babies whose

mothers took

methadone to

treat opioid

Lianne

Woodward

NEWS

dependence and

110 babies whose

mothers did not.

With PhD graduate Dr

Samantha Lee, Prof Woodward

followed the babies from birth

to four and a half years old,

with researchers assessing the

children’s physical and motor

development, social-emotional

skills, approaches to learning,

language, and cognitive

functioning.

“Opioid use in New Zealand

is on the rise, so the hope is

that this study can contribute

to health and education services

planning to help support the

needs of these children and

their families,” Prof Woodward

said.

“We wanted to understand

not only the effects of maternal

substance use during pregnancy

on children’s development but

also how social disadvantage and

other medical and family factors

might contribute to difficulties.”

Prof Woodward is an

international expert in child

developmental psychology.

Her study, Health and Neuro

development of Children Born

to Opioid Dependent Mothers

at School Entry, looks at the

extent and the mix of mothers’

substance use as well other social

and biological factors.

news online at www.star.kiwi

The results found that over

70 per cent of children born to

opioid-dependent mothers had at

least one health or developmental

difficulty that would likely

impact their schooling,

compared to 29 per cent of

children drawn from the general

population.

Multiple problems were also

common, affecting 48 per cent

of methadone-exposed children

compared with 15 per cent of

control-group children.

The research showed the

more substance used during

pregnancy, the worse the

outcomes for children.

However, with early targeted

help for these children and their

families, children’s outcomes can

be improved.

“It is clear from our results

that when there is good support

for the family and the family

is coping with the challenges

of parenting, their children do

well,” she said.

“We can mitigate the

long-term risks associated

with opioids and other forms

of maternal drug use during

pregnancy, but we need early

developmental surveillance

and intervention to identify

those who will benefit from

support.”

Thursday August 22 2019 The Star

I WAS WRONG last week, so I’d

best correct myself.

The church in Laura’s home village

of Pravisdomini is about 1000

years old, rather than 600, and

was built some time after Attila

the Hun and his band of merry

men “toured” an ageing Roman

Empire.

Apparently there’s also a whole

mess of the bones of Vittoria’s

ancestors a metre or so under the

church lawn too.

Vittoria’s been living the high

life this last week.

After recovering from the side

effects of antibiotics, she’s been

accompanying us on a fairly busy

circuit of friends, family, nearby

towns and villages.

She’s been cuddled near to

death by the older rellies, having

a blast with the younger family

members and running amok with

the kids of our friends who are of

a similar age.

The exercise is key with an appetite

like hers. We always knew

Vittoria was a good wee eater, but

she’s honestly eating almost as

much as us adults.

It’s so great to see after she

was off her food the first week,

however, I doubt any of us will be

coming back any lighter.

The big meals have been put to

good use in fuelling an increase in

VITTORIA

& Matt

Food, family and words

Vittoria’s communication skills.

She has definitively mastered

the word “this” and can now ask

you to “do this” or ask “what’s

this?” accompanied by furious

pointing. She’s also begun playing

with the words “rubbish” and

“finished”, although I’m still not

sure she’s got it yet. It just kind of

sounds like “ish” either way.

And it’s not just output that I’ve

noticed. With Italian (or the local

brand Venetian spoken by most of

Laura’s relatives) surrounding her

almost all day, every day, Vittoria

can now understand a few phrases

and respond accordingly.

I mean respond physically – like

she’ll probably wander over if you

ask her to in Italian – not verbally.

She’s also starting to get into

the Italian childrens’ time frame,

which I’m not sure is exactly ideal.

Up at 6.30am, a leisurely postlunch

nap at 2pm-ish and then

pushing the boundaries until almost

10pm if she can get away with it.

While I’m excited to try and

keep using as much Italian as

possible when we return home,

I think I might see about leaving

the timetable behind.

Song solo highlight from US camp

IT WAS a busy three weeks at

theatre camp in Michigan for St

Margaret’s College student Lara

Chiswell.

Lara applied to the camp

with a videotaped audition, and

she was offered a place on the

Musical Theatre Golden Age

Revue Summer programme in

Interlochen, Michigan.

Interlochen Arts Camp is held

annually over the United States’

summer break, and each year

thousands of artists and arts

patrons travel to Interlochen

for world-class education and

cultural opportunities.

Students can study music,

theatre, visual arts, film,

creative writing and dance at the

camp.

Over the three-week course,

the students were required to

learn 20 pieces of golden age

musical theatre.

Golden age musical theatre is

considered to be from the 1940s

to the 1950s.

It’s a long way from Lara’s

home in Strowan to the camp in

Michigan, and she described the

time away as “busy.”

“Our days were very busy

starting class at 8am then

carrying on to 11.45am,” she

said.

The students would then have

a lunch break until 1pm and

then have practice period, where

they had their own time to go

YOUNG, SUCCESSFUL

& on the move

SOLO: Lara Chiswell (centre) was one of two girls at the

Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan to sing a solo in the final

show of the camp. ​

21

over dances or harmonies in

songs.

Their classes would resume

at 2pm and finish at 5pm for a

dinner break. From 6.30-9pm

there would be night practices

and then it was bedtime at

9.30pm.

At the end of the three weeks,

the students put on a performance

and Lara was one of just

two girls to be given a singing

solo.

“During my time here (theatre

camp) I learned so much and

made some amazing friends. It

was incredible to be around such

like-minded people. My time at

Interlochen has been the best 3

weeks of my life.”

SELWYN SOUNDS 25

Icehouse will wind the clock back

• By Matt Slaughter

FEW BANDS can boast opening

for David Bowie just six years

after forming.

But for front man Iva Davies

and his band Icehouse, this is

exactly what happened.

The award-winning Australian

rock outfit will bring their hitfilled

set to Selwyn Sounds on

March 7 next year.

Icehouse’s line-up has changed

many times since forming as

Flowers more than 40 years ago.

Davies has been there since the

beginning.

He said years of on-stage

experience and songwriting

would be encapsulated in

the band’s Selwyn Sounds

performance.

“I’ve been working with some

of these guys for 35 years and

they are absolutely the most brilliant

set of musicians that Australia

has to offer, I’m completely

confident in saying that.”

Davies said the band was very

selective with where they played

these days, but they wanted to

play Selwyn Sounds because

New Zealand audiences had

always been some of their biggest

supporters.

The kind of relationship that

we have with New Zealand is

quite a special one because in the

80s when we were in full swing,

ENERGY: Iva Davies, front man of Australian band Icehouse, will perform at Selwyn

Sounds at Lincoln Domain in March.

PHOTO: TONY MOTT

we noted even then per head of

population we actually had more

success in New Zealand than

anywhere else in the world.”

But, it is fair to say Icehouse’s

music has been heard and appreciated

by audiences all over

the world.

Davies said the turnaround

from being a band of 20-something

year olds $18,000 in debt to

their management, to achieving

international success had not

been easy.

“It was just ridiculously hard

work.

The first album [Icehouse

when the band was still called

Flowers] was a massive success

in Australia, it was the highestselling

debut album by any Australian

band at that point . . . I

remember when that first royalty

cheque turned up. At that point

I actually had no home, I was

kind of couch surfing and under

duress living in my parents home

which I hated doing.

“When that first album came

out it was a big success and of

course, we were able to pay off

that debt and end up finally

earning some money.”

Davies said he didn’t believe

the money would keep rolling

in and certainly not that three

years later Icehouse would have

to choose between touring with

David Bowie or Peter Gabriel.

They decided to support Bowie

on his 1983 Serious Moonlight

European tour.

The sheer scale of it was just

beyond comprehension when

you’re playing to 70,000 people

every show that you do . . . I remember

pulling into one big outdoor

show and there were about

10 coaches, 10 buses . . . my

kind of head exploded because I

couldn’t conceive 10 buses full of

crew working on a single show.”

Davies said the Selwyn Sounds

crowd could expect Icehouse to

wind back the clock and put on

a performance with just as much

energy as they brought all those

years ago.

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question came

from Jun Wan. Congratulations!

How do I deal with strawberry

runners? Keep them or dump

Q

them? I know sometimes we

need to remove them to keep

the energy mainly into fruiting, and other

times keep them as future strawberry

plants (we replace our existing plants

every three years). What is

the general rule for

runners of strawberries?

For growing advice and information on

products visit www.daltons.co.nz

A

Winter is the time for replanting the strawberry patch. Commercial growers

replace all their strawberry plants every year, but in the home garden, it’s

recommended that once strawberry plants have been in the garden

for two growing seasons, they should be replaced. As older plants

produce an abundance of runners, it’s important to remove

the healthiest and most vigorous-growing of the runners to replace your

old strawberry plants. A way to do this is to monitor your plants during

the summer fruiting season and tag the best performers eg: heaviest

cropping and best fl avoured strawberries. You can then divide the

runners from these plants for next season.

When it comes to strawberries for the family, it is almost impossible

to have too many strawberry plants! Excess runners can also be

used to extend the strawberry patch or be given to friends.

Remember to prepare new planting areas thoroughly by adding

Daltons Garden Time Compost to the soil and raise the beds

at least 100mm above the existing soil level. This allows the soil to

warm quicker in spring. Your new plants should be spaced around

150mm apart. Finish with a layer of mulch (pea straw or bark)

around plants.

Products to try: Daltons Garden Time

Strawberry Fertiliser, Daltons Garden

Time Landscape Bark and other mulch

products.

WIN a Daltons Premium Strawberry Planting Pack!

Strawberries are one of the easiest fruits to grow. They need maximum sun and maximum heat

to produce sweet juicy fruit. Start planting now through to early spring for a bumper summer

crop. With a Daltons Premium Strawberry pack, your strawberries will be tasty, juicy delights.

We have a pack to give away valued over $70, containing 2 x Daltons Garden

Time Strawberry Mix, Daltons Garden Time Strawberry Fertiliser, Daltons Organic

Bio-Fungicide Powder, plus a pair of comfortable Red Back gardening gloves from

Williams to direct

Court production

AFTER DIRECTING work around the

world, Anthea Williams is returning to the

city for her debut at The Court Theatre in

homegrown comedy, The Pink Hammer.

The Court is the company that made

me realise I wanted to be a director,” said

Williams, talking about her decision to

travel across the ditch for the production.

Williams, now based in Sydney, is back

for The Pink Hammer; a Kiwi comedy

about five misfits who come together for an

“empowering” women’s carpentry course

that goes hilariously awry.

The Pink Hammer will run at The

Court Theatre from September 7 to

October 5.

Teaching children Pasifika heritage

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

WHEN TALIA-RAE Mavaega

travels to primary schools

nationally as a performer she

often finds it “disappointing”

to learn how little children

know about Pasifika’s rich

culture.

Having toured nationally

with Duffy Books in Homes,

she has found some schoolchildren

have never heard

of Samoa or Tonga or where

New Zealand is located in the

Pacific.

In a bid to educate children

on Pasifika’s heritage, Mavaega

is one of three performers

from theatre company Y NOT

travelling to schools across

Canterbury to share some

of Samoa, Tonga and New

Zealand’s most well-known

legends.

Directed by Gregory

Cooper, the theatre company

has collaborated with The

Court Theatre to present O Le

Malaga Fa’a’Atua (The Journey

of the Gods).

The multilingual production

will be touring across Canterbury

primary schools until

September 13 and will feature

Jake Arona and Mana Tatafu,

alongside Mavaega.

When asked by The Star

if education on the Pacific

could be better, she said: “I

think there is always room

for improvement, I just

think Pasifika culture isn’t

implemented as much.”

But Mavaega said: “The cool

thing is most of the kids once

they are given the opportunity

to learn a new word or whatever

they just jump on it which

is awesome.”

Based on a fusion of myths,

the O Le Malaga Fa’a’Atua

(The Journey of the Gods)

follows the story of demigod

Maui’s quest to prove himself

worthy of becoming a fullyfledged

God.

Mavaega, who is of Samoan

heritage, will play the role

of Sina based on the famous

Polynesian myth Sina and the

Eel, which explains the origins

of the first coconut tree.

But she said the message she

is hoping children will walk

away with is to make the right

choices to be kind to others

and be the best they can be.

The message stems from

when Maui (who is based on a

demigod from Maori mythology)

is faced with the decision

to either gain for himself or

help people forever.

Mavaega said while the

majority of schools it is

travelling to may not have the

population of Pacific students,

it is “awesome” it can share

with children who have not

experienced the culture.

Fortunately, times have

changed since Mavaega’s

grandfather moved to New

Zealand between the 1930s-

1940s.

Back then, she said children

were told off and beaten for

SPELL-BINDING:

Talia-Rae Mavaega

will feature in new

show O Le Malaga

Fa’a’Atua (The Journey

of the Gods). The show

is touring around

Canterbury primary

schools to teach

children about the rich

Pasifika culture.

speaking the Samoan and

had to sacrifice their language

to adapt to New Zealand

language.

“We are so lucky human

rights is now a thing,”

Mavaega said.

Y NOT was established in

2017 to bring more Pasifika

theatre into the city’s art

scene.

There are four available

performances for schools to

attend the show.

AVOCADO BAKED EGGS

WITH PARSNIP, PEA,

AND PANCETTA HASH

Ingredients

4 eggs

2 ripe avocados

1/2 cup pancetta, cubed

2 medium parsnips, or about 3

cups cubed

1/2 cup green peas

1 tsp dried thyme

Sea salt

Black pepper

Directions

Remove eggs from the

refrigerator and allow to come

to room temperature (15-

20min). Preheat oven to 210

deg C.

Run a knife down the center

of the avocados and carefully

twist into two halves. Remove

and discard the stone(s). Scoop

a small amount of the avocado

from the center to provide a

large enough hole for your egg

(save for topping the finished

dish).

Using a sheet of foil, crumble

into a “nest” for your avocado

to rest on without rolling over.

Place avocados face up on a

baking sheet.

Crack one egg at a time into

a small bowl, then carefully tip

into the avocado. Don’t worry if

a little bit of the whites overflow.

Carefully place the baking

sheet into a hot oven, allowing

to bake for about 20min. Keep

a careful eye on the eggs after

about 15min. Meanwhile, cube

the pancetta and add to a pan

heated over medium-high.

Peel and cube parsnip and

add to pan, along with salt,

pepper, and dried thyme. Saute

over medium heat for about

10min, until pancetta is crispy

SOMETHING VERY sacred

was taken from me when New

Zealand Cricket released its

domestic cricket schedule for the

upcoming summer.

Forget the Black Caps

twenty20 internationals and

the Black Clash cash-grab.

When it comes to viewing

cricket over summer, there’s

nothing better than grabbing

a couple of mates, filling a

backpack with a box of your

preferred poison and Lime

scootering down to Hagley Oval

for a day in the sun while sinking

tins and enjoying the mediocrity

of four-day domestic cricket.

The best occasions would

finish with a trip to the Pegasus

Arms for a few more pints and

a Sunday roast before passing

out in bed at an earlier than

respectable hour.

I like to call it a dream Sunday

– the best way to spend the day

before going back to the grind on

Monday.

Bowling through a sleepy start

The Star looks back each

week at Canterbury’s

sporting icons from

yesteryear. This week

Gordon Findlater talks to

former left-arm orthodox

bowler Mark Priest

FALLING ASLEEP on the first

day of the job was the beginning

of a long and successful domestic

cricket career for Mark Priest.

Priest, 58, played more than

200 first-class and one-day

games between 1984 and 1999.

The slow left-arm orthodox

bowler took 290 first-class

wickets for Canterbury – a

record which stood until this

year when it was broken by legspinner

Todd Astle.

However, after his first call-up

to the Canterbury side as 12th

man, Priest was better known

at the time for his ability to take

an afternoon nap rather than

wickets.

“I went up to Napier for a

three-day match. I was the

12th man and I fell asleep in

the dressing room, so that was

it for about two years until I

got another opportunity,” said

Priest.

He played his first cricket for

his dad’s team at Harewood

before joining the Papanui High

first XI, where a highlight was

upsetting Christ’s College.

In his early years with the

Canterbury squad, Priest battled

for the spinner’s spot with the

likes of Stephen Boock, Garry

MacDonald and Andrew Nuttall.

In 1990 he went on New

Zealand’s tour of England. He

made his test debut in a draw

with England in the first test at

Nottingham. He took one wicket

from his 12 overs, but was not

included in the two remaining

tests.

Priest went on to play just

two more tests for New Zealand

over an eight-year period.

He also played in 18 one-day

internationals during the

same period. One of his most

memorable call-ups to the Black

Caps came in 1998 when he was

brought into the squad the night

before a match against Australia

at Eden Park after Daniel Vettori

suffered an injury. At the time,

Priest had just finished playing

with Canterbury in Timaru.

“Every time the selectors rang

I didn’t believe it was them

because a friend of mine Joe

Harrison used to ring me up and

have me on. He was really good

at impersonating the selectors,”

said Priest.

“We’d just had a couple of

pints at the end of the day and I

get a call. He says ‘it’s Ross Dykes

here’ and I went ‘oh yeah, yeah

right’ . . . I just thought it was Joe

‘Dream Sundays’ at the cricket not an option this summer

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

However, it won’t be

happening this summer.

When the domestic cricket

calendar was released last

week it contained a lack of

dream Sundays – none in fact.

Canterbury will play just two

four-day games at Hagley.

One from Monday-Thursday

in October and another from

TRADIE: Mark Priest has

worked as an electrician

since leaving school and

also played more than 200

first-class games.

being a dick . . . I got a knock on

my door about 11.30 that night

and it was [Canterbury coach]

Garry MacDonald, who told

me Ross Dykes had called him

and I needed to be in Auckland

tomorrow.

“At about 2am, I took the team

van and drove to Christchurch,

got a flight at about seven in the

morning and then went straight

to Eden Park and played.”

The lack of sleep didn’t appear

to bother Priest. He produced

one of his best bowling performances

for New Zealand with

figures of 2-32 from 10 overs,

including the wickets of Steve

Waugh and Darren Lehmann to

Wednesday-Saturday in March.

To rub salt into the wound, they

will play two four-day matches

in Rangiora, both of which

include a Sunday.

To make matters worse,

Canterbury’s four home 50 over

matches – which will have free

entry – will all be played on week

days.

I understand not many people

go to watch domestic cricket

these days, but it’s hard to argue

any effort is being made to

change that with a log jam of

mid-week games.

We should be embracing free

entry and BYO food and drink

help New Zealand to a 30-run

victory. Priest was also handy

with the bat. He scored 3945

first-class runs, including four

centuries, for Canterbury at an

average of 30.58. He also scored

a number of runs for Canterbury

in one-day matches, but never

got a century.

However, he and many others

at Lancaster Park thought he

had scored a famous ton during

a Shell Cup match, only to later

discover there was an error with

the scoreboard and he in fact was

left on 98 not-out.

“In those days you didn’t get

too much opportunity to bat

because when we had the full

strength I used to bat 10,” said

Priest.

For a large chunk of his cricket

career, Priest also worked as

an electrician, and is still selfemployed

in the trade. He also

had a brief spell running a cafe

on Colombo St with his wife

before the 2011 earthquake.

Priest says “playing cricket

is the best job you could ever

have” but one thing he admits he

doesn’t miss is bowling to Craig

McMillan during net sessions.

“He was always trying to slog

you out of the nets . . . I’d bowl

until I got him out and then

I wouldn’t bowl to him again

because once you got him out

he’d start slogging you over the

stand,” said Priest.

for our longer-form domestic

cricket games. Why take a kid

too footy when you can take a

box to Hagley?

But if you’re one of these

new-age types who fizzes over

twenty20 cricket, you’re in luck.

The Canterbury Kings have five

matches at Hagley, including

three double-headers with the

Magicians.

However, you’ll be charged to

enter due to your poor taste in

preference of cricket format and

pay close to $10 each time you

want to wet your whistle.

For this summer at least, RIP

dream Sundays.

RIVALRY: Hornby Panthers half Tevin Arona and Linwood Keas captain Paul Sauni will

square off when their sides decide the Pat Smith Trophy. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Linwood and Hornby

reignite title rivalry

• By Gordon Findlater

FOR A FOURTH straight year,

the Linwood Keas and Hornby

Panthers will battle to decide the

Pat Smith Trophy on Sunday.

When the two sides meet at

Nga Puna Wai – the new home

of Canterbury Rugby League –

Linwood will look to claim an

extremely rare fourth straight

crown, while Hornby will try to

remove a growing monkey off

their back.

Linwood dominated

the 2016 (29-10) and

2017 (34-20) finals.

However, last year

Hornby led by 12 late in

the game before three

Linwood tries saw them

claim a dramatic 20-16

triumph to complete an

undefeated season.

Since then, Hornby

have been on a mission

to return to the

grand-final for another shot at

redemption.

“We talked about it in the

shed after that final. We wanted

to make a commitment with

each other. I was keen to stick

around and the boys were keen

to stick around,” said Hornby

coach Jed Lawrie.

In some friendly build-up

to the match, teenage Hornby

forward Caius Faatili – who

goes to St Thomas of Canterbury

College – has been rallying

together a group of students to

Jed Lawrie

great beer,

great food and

great service

cheer on his side. Linwood are

coached by Andrew Auimatagi,

who is also a teacher at St

Thomas’.

“In assembly on Monday,

(Faatili) made a public

announcement looking to get

the whole school down to Nga

Puna Wai dressed in black

to support him against me. I

thought that was quite funny,”

said Auimatagi.

If they win a fourth

consecutive title,

Linwood will

join an elite club

which includes

Sydenham (1953-

56), Hornby

(1964-67) and

Papanui (1971-

74).

“We haven’t

talked too much

about the history

of the four-peat,

but it will be

on their minds . . . the boys

are just a competitive bunch.

Right from preseason, they’re

always looking to be better,” said

Auimatagi.

This year Hornby defeated

Linwood 20-12 in their first

meeting in April. However,

Linwood won the next

encounter 20-18 in June. The

two teams then met in the major

semi-final, which was a mud

bath at Linwood Park, earlier

this month. Linwood won 12-10

great bevvies

to gain automatic entry into the

final. At the weekend, Hornby

defeated the Northern Bulldogs

34-20 to book their spot.

They’re a dangerous team.

Their style of play is pretty well

known, they like to use the ball,”

said Auimatagi.

With both sides being well

aware of what the other brings

to the table and their recent

record of close encounters, the

Pat Smith Trophy is likely to be

decided by a couple of big plays.

“If you watch the

last two finals, it’s

been little one-on-one

tackles, try-saving

tackles, that have been

the difference in the

game of footy,” said

Lawrie.

The match will be

one of four Canterbury

Rugby League finals

taking place at the

same location on

Sunday. It will be the first time

a true finals day has been held

since the 2011 earthquake.

UC champs final

expected to be

a mud bath

• By Gordon Findlater

A BATTLE OF the bog is what

Christchurch Boys’ High School

are expecting in preparation

of their UC Championship

final against Nelson College on

Saturday.

The final was due to be played

at Trafalgar Park – Tasman’s

home ground – but has been

shifted to Nelson College,

which was left in a muddy state

following their semi-final victory

over Christ’s College at the

weekend.

“After 10min, you couldn’t

tell the teams apart apparently,

so it’s not going to be much of

a spectacle.

Obviously the

forwards are

going to have to

prepare really

well because

the game will

be won and lost

up front,” said

Rhys

Archibald

CBHS coach

Rhys Archibald.

With rain

expected today

in Nelson, the likes of CBHS

prop Ben Lopas are expecting a

heavy workload.

After recovering from surgery

following a knee dislocation the

year 13 student returned for his

school’s win against Christ’s

in May. However, a dislocation

to his other knee in the match

meant he missed a large chunk of

the season before returning for

a crucial win over St Andrew’s

College at the start of the month.

“It was very frustrating,

obviously to come back after six

months recovery and then do

it again, but that’s rugby,” said

Lopas.

Since then the loosehead has

been in scintillating form for

CBHS, which have recovered

from a bumpy start to the season

to make the final.

they are to win a

the forwards will need to be at

their best against an impressive

Nelson unit.

They’ve got a big forward

pack, that’s definitely their

strength they’ve got some good

players in there,” said Lopas.

One of the biggest obstacles will

be Nelson loose forward Anton

Segner. The German exchange

student made the New Zealand

Schools team last year and has

become renowned for his ability

to create turnovers.

“What he does is he picks the

moments he’s going to attack the

ball in the tackle and when he

does it he does it really well

. . . if he makes the decision to

go, 80 per cent of the time he

wins a penalty or he will steal the

ball. He’s bloody good at it,” said

Archibald.

12.40pm and will be broadcast

BUSY MAN: Joe Bartholomew will help coach Marist’s women’s side before turning out

for the men in the finals at Nga Puna Wai on Saturday.

Marist hope for upset

• By Gordon Findlater

SOUTHERN UNITED and

Carlton Redcliffs will go into

the Canterbury premier league

men’s and women’s hockey finals

on Saturday as favourites. But

Marist have hopes of spoiling

their party and claiming a rare

double.

In the men’s final, Southern

United will look to complete a

clean sweep of titles after winning

the President’s Shield, Porritt

Cup and Challenge Shield.

A win over Marist would also

give them their first CPL title

since the club was created with

the amalgamation of Selwyn and

Sydenham in 2014.

Only lowly University scored

less goals than Southern during

the regular season. However,

their success has been built on

LAURENCE PITHIE will

return home with two junior

world titles after bursting onto

the international cycling scene.

The Christchurch Boys’ High

School student won rainbow

jerseys in the madison and

omnium at the UCI junior

track world championships

in Germany. It marked an

outstanding campaign for

Pithie, who only recently turned

17 and will qualify for the

junior worlds again next year.

He started well in his quest

to win the omnium, finishing

fourth in the opening 7.5km

scratch race, before taking on

the tempo race, comprising of

a sprint in each of the 26 laps

after a four-lap start.

in 14 matches. A key cog to the

competition’s best defensive

record is former Black Sticks

defender Brad Shaw. He may

have played 192 games for the

national side, but Shaw said he

still gets “as nervous for these

games as internationals.”

Over the weekend, Southern

defeated Avon 3-1 to book their

spot in the final, while Marist

overcame Harewood 4-2.

“We don’t have the superstars,

but on the other side we don’t

have any big gaps in our team,”

said Shaw. “They’re [Marist] in

the final for a reason . . . they’ve

got 12 or 13 really good players.

If they get it together they’ll be

hard to beat.”

Marist will be hoping to complete

a dream weekend, which

will see their women’s team also

go for the CPL title against an

undefeated Carlton Redcliffs.

“It is my weak link in the

omnium and one I don’t usually

do very well in,” said Pithie.

But he broke clear to win

10 sprints in a row to claim

the honours and followed up

with a win in the elimination

race, where the last rider is

eliminated every second lap.

“I had a great start in the

points race and collected points

in each of the first five sprints,

and from that point on it was a

case of just covering wheels. I

was absolutely knackered,” said

Pithie.

He claimed first equal in the

points race to finish with 129

overall.

On the final day of the

championships, Pithie paired

The club’s back-to-back finals at

Nga Puna Wai will make for a

busy day for former Black Sticks

defender Joe Bartholomew who

will be on coaching duties during

the women’s final before taking

to the field in the men’s final.

At the weekend, Marist

defeated last year’s champions

Harewood 2-1, while Carlton

took care of HSOB/Burnside 3-0.

Carlton are eyeing a clean

sweep of titles, which has

seen them go undefeated this

year. They dominated Marist in

their first meeting of the year

in May 3-0. However, Carlton’s

5-4 win in their last encounter

earlier this month was a far

more even contest.

49 points, ahead of Germany

on 35 and France on 27, in the

30km race where no team was

able to put a lap on the field. The

New Zealand pair won the final

three sprints to seal the win.

“Laurence missed the change

with one and a half laps to go

went for it,” said coach Myron

Coastal set sights

on women’s

football double

• By Gordon Findlater

RECENTLY crowned women’s

premier league champions

Coastal Spirit can book a spot

in the final of the Kate Sheppard

Cup when they face Wellington

United on Saturday.

Coastal are the only

Canterbury club to win

the national knockout cup

since it was first played

for in 1994. In 2013, they

defeated Auckland’s

Glenfield Rovers 1-0 at

English Park.

Captain Chloe Jones is

one of only a few players

remaining from the side

which won in 2013. She

says thinking back to

the triumph still “brings

goosebumps.” She is confident

this squad have a good shot at

replicating the accomplishment.

“It’s got a special place in our

heart. I think it’s exciting for

everybody, you get to come up

against different people that

you’ve never played before and

it’s an opportunity for people to

get seen at a higher level,” said

Jones.

Last month Coastal booked

their spot in the semi-finals

with a win on penalties over

defending champions Dunedin

Technical. Prior to that they

started their campaign by

defeating Universities 3-0 in

the first round, Nelson Suburbs

10-0 in the second and Waimak

United 4-2 in round three.

Now the only remaining South

Island team in the competition,

they will look to punch above

their weight. Only Coastal and

Dunedin have ever managed to

bring the cup south.

“We are closing that gap a little

bit between the north and south,

but it’s still a massive challenge

for us going up to the North

Island. Some of those Auckland

teams are really strong with

a big pool of players

to choose from,” said

Jones.

“In terms of backing

ourselves, we back

ourselves in every

game we go into and

this weekend is no

different.”

Coastal admit they

didn’t know too much

about Saturday’s

opposition when the

draw was made.

However, Coastal football

development manager Gary

Bennett says they have found

a means of scouting the

Wellington-based side.

“We’ve got a lifelong fan who’s

moved to Wellington and he’s

gone to watch them three or

four times and made some notes

for us, so we’ve been looking

through them . . . he’s been

spotted now. It doesn’t help that

he wears his Coastal Spirit hat

everywhere, including to bed I

think,” said Bennett.

Earlier this month, Coastal

captured their third straight

premier league title on the final

day of the season by holding

rivals Cashmere Technical to a

2-2 draw at English Park.

Saturday’s match kicks off in

Wellington at 1pm.

enhance the look and feel

of the CX-5.

However, there is one

other important feature

with the range-topping

CX-5. Takami grade

variants get a turbocharged

2.5-litre engine. Regular

CX-5 models have the same

basic engine construction,

but they are sans turbo.

The Takami is a standalone

model using this engine,

although it must be

considered it is much the

same unit that is fitted to

the CX-9 which I evaluated

in these columns in June.

In the CX-5, the turbo

unit works that much better,

the vehicle is lighter than the

CX-9 and, as a consequence,

delivers better performance

and economy.

In terms of figures,

Mazda rates the engine at

170kW (5000rpm) with

420Nm of torque also

available low in the rev

band at 2000rpm. These

are the figures which make

this engine so desirable,

it works tirelessly at the

bottom end, it has been

specifically developed so

that fuel use is kept to a

minimum, yet it will offer

all of the performance

ingredients that you would

expect from a big four-pot

turbocharged engine.

The CX-5 Takami will

reach 100km/h from a

standstill in 8.8sec and

will scamper through

a highway overtake in

4.7sec (80-120km/h).

More importantly, it is

gentle on fuel considering

there is over 1700kg to

shift. Mazda rate it with

an 8.2-litre per 100km

(35mpg) combined cycle

fuel usage average. During

my time in the test car the

fuel usage readout was

constantly listing around

9.2l/100km (31mpg), with

a 7l/100km (40mpg) figure

MAZDA CX-5 TAKAMI: High grade trim and

turbocharged engine.

sitting instantaneously

at 100km/h, the engine

working right in the area of

maximum torque.

Don’t be thinking that

because the engine works

slowly and effectively at low

speed that it won’t utilise the

top end, it will sing to the

redline without too much

provocation and it enjoys

that, but there is little need

to have it in that area.

• Price – Mazda CX-5

Takami, $61,495

• Dimensions –

Length, 4550mm;

width, 1840mm;

height, 1680mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2488cc, 170kW,

420Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.8sec

• Fuel usage –

8.2l/100km

A lot of that is down to

the engine management

protocols and how they

work with the transmission.

The six-speed automatic

gearbox is traditional

Mazda fare, and I’ve written

many times that simplicity

is a good design and there

are no surprises within the

driveline, everything works

traditionally and the result

is efficiency.

That’s something Mazda

has been working on as

a priority over the last

few years, their SkyActive

engines are fuel misers, and

even in turbo form you get

the benefit of significant

power knowing that fuel

isn’t being wasted.

In the Takami’s case, the

CX-5 carries four-wheeldrive

mechanicals. With

193mm ground clearance

it has notable off-the-seal

capability, and that is

much on par with SUVs

of this type, the CX-5 is

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

particularly suited to that

mid-winter trip to the

alpine ski fields.

I didn’t venture into the

loose, my time with the

test car was plagued by

filthy weather and I wasn’t

prepared to get stuck

in low-grip situations.

However, I did have a long

highway drive taking in

the twisty sections of State

Highway 72 in and out of

the Rakaia Gorge. Even

in soaking conditions the

CX-5 felt tightly connected

to the road.

What must be enjoyed

is the ride comfort and

control throughout the

entire vehicle, it travels ever

so smoothly and is quiet in

motion. I guess when you

are buying a vehicle that sits

on the outer periphery of the

luxury car market you’d want

that to be case, and the CX-5

Takami doesn’t disappoint.

It also gets all of the

upmarket kit for comfort

and convenience, along

with the latest Mazda

suite of safety technology.

I-Activesense has had a

recent upgrade, and that

makes the CX-5 just that

little more appealing.

While Mazda has

done well with CX-5, the

company knows there is lot

of competition out there

and it’s getting tougher day

by day. I drove the Takami

straight after a few days

with Skoda’s Kodiaq RS,

its turbocharged diesel

engine is a cracker, and

being priced close to the

CX-5 Takami it’s a natural

competitor and one which

will keep the latter honest.

For me, diesel power

would be preferable,

however, there’s also the

Mazda CX-8 to consider, its

Mazda’s diesel option in the

mid-to-large SUV market.

There are so many

choices, I guess I’m lucky

in a way that finances mean

I’ll probably never have to

face those decisions.

REA - How property buyers

can spot a healthy home

Purchasing a house that’s warm and dry is a

priority for many property hunters, but how

can buyers identify a ‘healthy’ home?

Real Estate Authority (REA) chief executive

Kevin Lampen-Smith says there are a

handful of key traits to watch out for.

“A house that’s hard to heat can make you

sick and miserable. In many cases, the key is

good insulation,” Lampen-Smith says.

The World Health Organisation recommends

a minimum of 18 degrees in

our homes. Insulation is often the most

practical and cost-effective way to make

a house more energy

efficient. An insulated

home is warmer in

winter and cooler in

summer, which can

provide health benefits

like reducing mould

and damp.

“Ask the agent or

seller if the property is

insulated, the type of

insulation used and when it was installed.

Ask your building inspector to check the

state of the insulation,” Lampen-Smith

suggests.

Lampen-Smith explains insulation should

be replaced or topped up if it’s less than

12cm thick, doesn’t cover the whole ceiling,

has become wet or damp, or been damaged

by rodents or birds.

“If a property you’re looking at isn’t insulated,

it’s a good idea to budget for the cost

of doing the work, as your health (and your

wallet) will thank you in the long term.”

There’s support available for some buyers,

such as a Warmer Kiwi Homes insulation

grant. Some local councils also allow property

owner to add the cost of insulation to

their rates and pay this back over time.

When working to identify a healthy

home, Lampen-Smith says it’s important to

watch out for dampness. Signs of dampness

include musty smells, damp or mouldy

wardrobe contents, mould forming behind

paintings or furniture, or mould or watermarks

on ceilings or walls.

“Condensation on windows, especially in

bedrooms, isn’t necessarily a sign of excessive

dampness if it only happens occasionally

during winter,” Lampen-Smith explains.

Ideally, the house will have extractor fans

in the bathroom, kitchen

and laundry that are

vented outside. Fans

should not be vented

into the roof space.

Good curtains can

also help a house retain

warmth.

“It’s important to

note that curtains aren’t

necessarily included in

the sale of the house, so ask about this and

if the answer is yes, ensure they’re included

in the list of chattels in the sale and purchase

agreement,” Lampen-Smith says.

According to EECA, good curtains

should be floor-length and fit tightly against

the wall or window frame. Sill-length

curtains are ineffective. Curtains should be

wider than the window frame and preferably

be double layered with a thick lining.

If the property has ineffective curtains, or

does not come with curtains, buyers should

factor this cost into their budget.

resources about purchasing a home, visit

website for buyers and sellers.

A snapshot of what’s cooking

at the Cashmere Club

CHEF ANAS

THIS THURSDAY

Saturday

Sunday

Sunday 18 Aug

THERE’S a new chef at the Riverview

Restaurant in the Cashmere Club and

with him comes an exciting new menu

that incorporates traditional Kiwi

classics with exciting new dishes.

Hailing from Jordan in the Middle

East, Chef Anas (pronounced Are-niss)

specialises in fusion style cuisine. Some

of the new menu options embrace his

delicious blend of Middle Eastern

flavours with the best of seasonal Kiwi

produce.

On the menu remain traditional Kiwi

favourites such as Roast of the Day,

Steaks cooked to your liking, the Club

Burger, Fish & Chips, Curry of the Day

along with Chef ’s new dishes such as

Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Crispy

Calamari Rings, Braised Beef Brisket or

Cheesy Mushroom Quesadillas, Sticky

BBQ Pork Ribs, and Creamy Basil Pesto

Mussels.

ere’s also ‘Platters’ that serve four.

Piggy Platter (Braised Pork) and

Chicken Platter (Whole Roast Chicken)

that come with Slaw, Tortillas, Dips, and

fried Potatoes.

At the glance it’s obvious that menu

prices are extremely reasonable. It’s also

good to see that consideration has been

given to special diets with a healthier

slant on salads as well as a selection of

gluten free, vegetarian and vegan

options.

As the menu evolves, foodies can

expect to see a new decadent dessert

menu introduced as well as a fresh

kiddies menu.

e Riverview Restaurant is open

Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and

dinner. Bookings recommended on 03
