Inmate<br />

found<br />

with<br />

AK47<br />

after<br />

bailed for<br />

funeral<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

AN INMATE given court bail to<br />

attend a funeral went on the run<br />

and was later found in a motel<br />

unit with a banned high-powered<br />

military-style semi-automatic rifle<br />

and other weapons.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 36-year-old is now back in<br />

custody after police raided a motel<br />

in St Albans where it is alleged<br />

he had an AK47 assault rifle, two<br />

12-gauge shotguns, two .<strong>22</strong> calibre<br />

rifles and more than 100 rounds<br />

of ammunition.<br />

He was also charged with possession<br />

of methamphetamine, a<br />

glass pipe for consuming methamphetamine,<br />

possession of cannabis<br />

for the purpose of sale and<br />

supply, and failure to assist with a<br />

search warrant.<br />

<strong>The</strong> AK47 was banned in the<br />

aftermath of the March 15 terror<br />

attacks in Christchurch.<br />

He will appear again in the<br />

district court on Tuesday.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> has learned the<br />

36-year-old failed to return to<br />

prison in early May after being<br />

given bail to leave prison to attend<br />

a funeral in Wellington.<br />

Hunker down, winter will be<br />

sticking around a bit longer<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

THE START of spring will be a<br />

little more wintry than normal.<br />

National Institute of Water<br />

and Atmospheric Research<br />

meteorologist Ben Noll said it<br />

will be a sluggish start to spring.<br />

He said in spite of moments<br />

where it will feel like spring, it<br />

will be short-lived as “warmth<br />

will be fleeting.”<br />

“Warm<br />

weather will<br />

only stick<br />

around for a day<br />

or two and it<br />

will be replaced<br />

by cooler air.”<br />

Ben Noll<br />

He said residents<br />

may want<br />

to keep a heightened level of<br />

awareness of weather patterns as<br />

there may be chilly spells which<br />

could even bring in snow.<br />

Mr Noll said it was too early to<br />

predict the rainfall beyond the<br />

next few weeks.<br />

In spite of more than 600<br />

sunshine hours, last year’s<br />

average spring temperature of<br />

11.2 deg C made Christchurch<br />

the coolest of the main cities,<br />

and the 218mm rainfall was<br />

considered well above normal.<br />

Meteorologists are trying to<br />

determine if unusual weather<br />

patterns across the country are<br />

related to a sudden stratospheric<br />

warming event, which is when<br />

Christchurch the coolest of the main cities, and the<br />

218mm rainfall was 160 per cent above normal.<br />

rapid warming occurs up to<br />

But Mr Noll said it is not<br />

possible to determine at this<br />

stage where specific weather<br />

events will unfold in different<br />

parts of the country and that for<br />

now, Christchurch does not look<br />

like it will be affected as much as<br />

other parts of the south island.<br />

Arrest made after<br />

Edgeware stabbing<br />

A 21-year-old man has been<br />

arrested after a stabbing at an<br />

Edgeware petrol station on<br />

Sunday morning. <strong>The</strong> incident<br />

at Edgeware BP left one person<br />

with serious injuries. <strong>The</strong><br />

attacker and the victim did not<br />

appear to know each other and<br />

the victim was stabbed twice<br />

with a small knife after making<br />

an offensive gesture. He has<br />

been charged with wounding<br />

with intent to cause grievous<br />

bodily harm and was due to<br />

appear in the district court late<br />

yesterday afternoon.<br />

Homeless man gets<br />

his wish – jail<br />

A 42-year-old homeless man<br />

who allegedly robbed a central<br />

city cafe because he wanted to<br />

get back into police custody<br />

has been remanded. Because<br />

of mental health issues, the<br />

man was granted interim name<br />

suppression when he appeared<br />

in the district court yesterday.<br />

Police opposed the man’s release<br />

on bail and he consented to<br />

being held in custody, making<br />

no bail application.<br />

Two years jail for<br />

stealing plaques<br />

A woman who stole 37<br />

war veteran plaques from a<br />

cemetery to sell for scrap metal<br />

has been jailed for more than<br />

two years. Gail Maree Wickes<br />

was sentenced to 26 months<br />

in the district court yesterday.<br />

She removed the plaques from<br />

Springston Cemetery which<br />

were worth $4000 and sold<br />

them for $1026 to scrap dealers.<br />

East withdrew – he<br />

wasn’t absolved<br />

Last week it was reported city<br />

councillor David East was<br />

absolved from his code of<br />

conduct complaints with the<br />

city council. This was incorrect.<br />

Cr East had withdrawn from<br />

the code of conduct complaint<br />

process and the city council<br />

It is believed he did not attend<br />

the funeral. Police were alerted<br />

immediately, said Department<br />

of Corrections deputy national<br />

commissioner Andy Milne.<br />

Mr Milne said Corrections<br />

was not a party to the bail proceedings.<br />

Prisoner’s legal representatives<br />

make applications<br />

for bail on their behalf and the<br />

decision to grant bail is made by<br />

the district court, he said.<br />

“A judge then decides whether<br />

to grant the person bail and<br />

what conditions they must<br />

comply with. A person granted<br />

bail is not in Corrections<br />

custody, and therefore not<br />

accompanied or supervised by<br />

corrections officers,” said Mr<br />

Milne.<br />

NEO-NAZIS ARE selling<br />

hardcover copies of the accused<br />

mosque shooter’s hate-filled<br />

manifesto online.<br />

A far-right message board on<br />

an encrypted instant messaging<br />

site is selling the banned racist<br />

document for US$4 (NZ$6.23).<br />

<strong>The</strong> alleged gunman released<br />

the rambling 87-page screed on<br />

March 15 just moments before<br />

the shootings which claimed<br />

51 lives. It was posted on the<br />

notorious 8chan website, which<br />

is known as one of the darkest<br />

corners on the internet.<br />

New Zealand’s chief censor<br />

has classified the manifesto as<br />

objectionable. Anyone found to<br />

be distributing it in New Zealand<br />

could face up to 14 years in<br />

prison, or a $10,000 fine.<br />

While a 28-year-old Australian<br />

national remains in a<br />

maximum-security Auckland<br />

prison awaiting trial, his banned<br />

rants are being pushed on a<br />

Ukrainian right-wing internet<br />

channel created two days after<br />

the mass shootings. It has more<br />

than 1000 subscribers with its<br />

admin user calling themselves<br />

‘Hitler Himself’.<br />

<strong>The</strong> channel features vile white<br />

supremacy messages, memes and<br />

videos and openly encourages<br />

news online at www.star.kiwi<br />

Hate-filled manifesto sold online<br />

NOTORIOUS: <strong>The</strong> letter from the alleged mosque<br />

gunman sent from Auckland Prison.<br />

violence against people of colour<br />

and Jews.<br />

<strong>The</strong> admin says he was<br />

inspired by the alleged killer<br />

and wants to “maximise the<br />

manifesto and everything related<br />

to it”.<br />

It is pictured alongside images<br />

of guns, Hitler, and the former<br />

Nazi leader’s own anti-Semitic<br />

manifesto Mein Kampf.<br />

On May 15, the administrator<br />

says he was working on printing<br />

out the document for widespread<br />

dissemination. “I do not make<br />

money on this. If someone<br />

doesn’t have shekels to spare –<br />

take the layout and print this out<br />

on your own, not a problem,” the<br />

channel admin wrote.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> idea is to give paper<br />

versions to everyone in a row, on<br />

birthdays, wedding anniversaries<br />

and baptisms of children. In<br />

the first place, the inhabitants,<br />

to open their eyes to our cruel<br />

world.”<br />

And on <strong>August</strong> 10, he boasts<br />

of sending eight books to new<br />

owners. <strong>The</strong> March 15 so-called<br />

manifesto has allegedly inspired<br />

other attacks around the world<br />

in recent months, including at a<br />

Californian synagogue in April<br />

and this month at an El Paso<br />

Walmart and a mosque in<br />

Oslo.<br />

<strong>The</strong> admin also encourages<br />

people to write to the alleged<br />

shooter in prison, and gives an<br />

address where correspondence<br />

can be sent.<br />

An electronic copy of a letter<br />

purportedly sent by the accused<br />

from behind bars has also been<br />

posted to the site.<br />

Last week when it emerged<br />

that the defendant was corresponding<br />

with the far-right from<br />

prison it drew criticism for the<br />

Department of Corrections.<br />

Christchurch white supremacist<br />

Philip Arps, jailed for sharing<br />

the mosque shooting video,<br />

also had wrongly been allowed<br />

to send his own “vile” letter to<br />

a media organisation, it was<br />

revealed last week.<br />

Corrections chief executive<br />

Christine Stevenson has said she<br />

does not have confidence in the<br />

current processes for reviewing<br />

and assessing prisoners’ mail,<br />

and has called for an immediate<br />

review.<br />

LOGISTICAL ISSUES may<br />

be considered in the decision<br />

to move the March 15 accused<br />

gunman’s trial out of the city,<br />

says a high-profile Christchurch<br />

lawyer.<br />

But the extra costs associated<br />

with moving the High Court trial<br />

won’t be a factor in the decision<br />

which will be made by Justice<br />

Cameron Mander, said Nigel<br />

Hampton QC.<br />

“Justice isn’t<br />

a commodity, it<br />

can’t be bought<br />

or sold either<br />

way. That will<br />

not feature in<br />

the decisionmaking<br />

process<br />

regarding<br />

change of venue<br />

. . . the<br />

requirements<br />

of justice would trump the cost<br />

aspect,” he said.<br />

Earlier this month, defence<br />

lawyers for the accused shooter,<br />

Shane Tait and Jonathan Hudson,<br />

applied to change the venue of<br />

the trial.<br />

<strong>The</strong> accused denies 51 charges<br />

of murder, 40 charges of<br />

attempted murder and a charge<br />

under the Terrorist Suppression<br />

Act for the attack at the two<br />

mosques on March 15.<br />

Mr Tait and Mr Hudson have<br />

not publicly stated the reasons for<br />

the application.<br />

By law, a trial must take place<br />

in the nearest court to where the<br />

alleged crime took place.<br />

However, if the defence can<br />

prove there may be a risk of the<br />

accused not getting a fair or<br />

impartial trial, due to a reason<br />

such as adverse publicity, it can<br />

be argued that a change of venue<br />

should take place.<br />

Mr Hampton believes the<br />

Crown prosecution may face<br />

logistical issues if the trial is<br />

moved out of Christchurch.<br />

This will include organising<br />

the travel and accommodation<br />

of witnesses, who may be<br />

victims of the attack, first<br />

Cost not a factor in decision to<br />

move accused gunman’s trial<br />

Nigel Hampton<br />

CAUGHT: <strong>The</strong> moment the<br />

accused mosque gunman<br />

was arrested.<br />

responders, police, Institute<br />

of Environmental Science and<br />

Research staff, surgeons and<br />

other medical staff.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re is going to be a huge<br />

bevy of witnesses that are going<br />

to be juggled and that’s a factor<br />

that the Crown might say should<br />

come into the balance as well in<br />

weighing up whether to change<br />

the venue or not,” said Mr<br />

Hampton.<br />

<strong>The</strong> defence could argue due<br />

to the publicity around the<br />

event, there may be some undue<br />

prejudices attached to or against<br />

the trial rights of the accused.<br />

“Given the degree of publicity<br />

up and down the country, let<br />

alone the rest of the world, it’s a<br />

wee bit hard to see this would be<br />

objectively strong.<br />

“If they want to resist it, Crown<br />

would suggest that in these highprofile<br />

cases that it doesn’t matter<br />

a damn whether it’s Invercargill<br />

or Whangarei, everyone in this<br />

country knows all about this<br />

particular event,” he said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> trial is expected to start in<br />

May next year and could last six<br />

to 12 weeks. <strong>The</strong> start date may<br />

also be delayed by three or four<br />

weeks.<br />

<strong>The</strong> change of venue will be<br />

argued on October 3.<br />

Gifts the police get but can’t<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

WHAT DO a $500 Cartier<br />

diamond pen, NRL match<br />

tickets, a traditional Maori<br />

weapon and a small box of<br />

condiments all have in common?<br />

All were part of more than 200<br />

presents gifted to police in the<br />

past year, listed on a gift and hospitality<br />

register released annually.<br />

<strong>The</strong> gifts are largely either accepted,<br />

declined or donated to<br />

charity and all must be in line<br />

with police’s official policy on<br />

gifts, discounts and hospitality.<br />

Those doing the gifting range<br />

widely from individuals to gangs<br />

and international Government<br />

agencies, such as the Chinese<br />

Embassy, Ministry of Foreign<br />

Affairs of Japan and the United<br />

States Air Force Office of Special<br />

Investigations.<br />

Staff from the Canterbury district<br />

received more than 30 gifts<br />

in the past year, many of which<br />

were in response to the March 15<br />

terror attack.<br />

In June, a case of traditional<br />

opera figures from the Christchurch<br />

Chinese Consulate were<br />

gifted and accepted, along with<br />

tea pots and tea, which were<br />

given to charity.<br />

A framed certificate of appreciation<br />

and fabric was gifted from the<br />

Linwood Islamic Charitable Trust<br />

and district commander John<br />

REGISTER: A Cartier<br />

diamond pen, a taiaha and<br />

a box of doughnuts are<br />

some of the items police<br />

have been offered as gifts.<br />

Price received a tie and cuff link set<br />

from the city council in May.<br />

Natural medicines to the value<br />

of $10000 were gifted to the district<br />

rehabilitation co-ordinator,<br />

but were declined.<br />

Tickets to events are often<br />

gifted but not usually accepted.<br />

In the past year, Canterbury<br />

Police were offered tickets and<br />

hospitality from the Crusaders<br />

and 30 NRL match tickets to the<br />

Warriors v Sea Eagles in Christchurch,<br />

but the gifts were declined.<br />

Float therapy vouchers valued<br />

at $300 and 200 movie vouchers<br />

were accepted, but subsequently<br />

donated to charity.<br />

In March, the Saudi Arabian<br />

government gifted a $500 Cartier<br />

pen to a protection officer, which<br />

was accepted and a donation was<br />

made to charity, in recognition of<br />

the gift.<br />

Police gift and hospitality<br />

report is 11 pages and details the<br />

rules and regulations for all police<br />

employees when offered gifts.<br />

It states employees have to play<br />

a part in upholding integrity<br />

and must not be influenced (or<br />

create the perception of being<br />

influenced) when performing<br />

their duties, by either directly or<br />

indirectly soliciting or receiving<br />

any gift, discount or hospitality.<br />

“Gifts or hospitality can be<br />

offered for various reasons –<br />

both well-intentioned (to show<br />

appreciation, or as part of a<br />

ceremonial occasion) and less<br />

well-intentioned (as an attempt<br />

to gain favour). <strong>The</strong> best way of<br />

avoiding any perception of influence<br />

would be to refuse all offers<br />

of gifts and hospitality. However,<br />

this is not always workable in<br />

practice,” it states.<br />

When deciding whether or<br />

not to accept a gift, factors that<br />

must be considered include, the<br />

ability to demonstrate continuing<br />

impartiality, in both operational<br />

and non-operational matters, the<br />

possibility of reputational risk<br />

and the potential that accepting<br />

a gift, discount or hospitality<br />

will negatively impact on police’s<br />

standing within the community.<br />

For events, invitations should<br />

only be accepted where a benefit<br />

to police, not just the individual<br />

can be shown.<br />

VOTING ON the controversial<br />

childcare policy which would see<br />

city councillors and community<br />

board members’ childcare<br />

paid for by ratepayers has been<br />

delayed.<br />

City councillors were to<br />

have voted before the end of<br />

this month on the issue.<br />

However, the city council is now<br />

unsure whether it will happen<br />

before or after October’s elections.<br />

If adopted by the council,<br />

councillors and community<br />

board members would be eligible<br />

to an allowance only if their<br />

child is under 14 and the childcare<br />

is not provided by a family<br />

member.<br />

Childcare allowances are<br />

also limited to $6000 a year per<br />

child.<br />

City councillor Aaron Keown<br />

saw the delay as a “political<br />

sidestep.”<br />

He thought the vote could<br />

be being delayed to protect<br />

councillors from scrutiny before<br />

October’s elections.<br />

“I think it is one of those<br />

things that they are wanting to<br />

avoid prior to the election.<br />

“It does feel like a dodge,” he<br />

said.<br />

However, city councillor James<br />

Gough did not think this was<br />

the case.<br />

“I have been around long<br />

enough to know that there is<br />

a mad rush of reports that are<br />

meant to come to council but don’t<br />

quite make it during this time,<br />

there is a real push to get decisions<br />

made and tabled before the end of<br />

the election cycle,” he said.<br />

Both Cr Keown and Cr Gough<br />

told <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> they were not<br />

supportive of councillor and<br />

community board members’<br />

childcare being paid for by<br />

ratepayers.<br />

Simon O’Neill in Concert with<br />

Woolston Brass – Fundraising Concerts<br />

Proudly sponsored by John Rhind, international<br />

superstar tenor Simon O'Neill joins Christchurch's<br />

iconic Woolston Brass under the direction of Music<br />

Director Tyme Marsters to perform tenor classics and<br />

raise funds for the band’s future home.<br />

New Zealand born, Simon O'Neill has established<br />

himself as one of the finest helden-tenors on the<br />

international stage. He has frequently performed with<br />

the Metropolitan Opera, the Royal Opera House,<br />

Covent Garden, Berlin, Hamburg and Bayerische<br />

Staatsopern, Teatro alla Scala and the Bayreuth,<br />

Salzburg, Edinburgh and BBC Proms Festivals,<br />

appearing with a number of illustrious conductors.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Woolston Brass Band has been in existence for<br />

128 years and is the most successful and recognised<br />

band in New Zealand. Woolston Brass consists of over<br />

thirty musicians drawn from a variety of professions<br />

and ages brought together by a creative talent for<br />

making music. <strong>The</strong> band has remained true to the<br />

ideal expressed in its Maori motto, Tohea kia kaha<br />

“<strong>The</strong> Wagnerian tenor of his generation”<br />

advertorial<br />

(Persevere, so there is Strength).<br />

<strong>The</strong> band's existing hall on Dampier Street has<br />

been used since 1961 and is no longer fit for purpose,<br />

damaged from the earthquakes and is earmarked for<br />

demolition. Significant fundraising is now sought to<br />

rebuild this rehearsal facility on Dampier Street that<br />

will host the award-winning Woolston Brass and their<br />

Academy.<br />

Simon O’Neill is proudly donating his voice to help<br />

Woolston Brass raise funds for the new band hall. <strong>The</strong><br />

fundraising concerts being held Friday 8 November<br />

at the Christchurch James Hay <strong>The</strong>atre and Sunday 10<br />

November at the Ashburton Trust Event Centre will<br />

feature tenor classics such as traditional Irish ballad<br />

Danny Boy (Londonderry Air), Caruso written by<br />

Italian composer Dalla, the famous Swedish Folk Song<br />

(How Great Thou Art) and the iconic aria Largo Al<br />

Factotum from Rossini’s opera <strong>The</strong> Barber of Seville.<br />

Young myth busters: Cracking the<br />

Conspiracy theories,<br />

fake news, true or false?<br />

<strong>The</strong>se are the questions<br />

a class of secondary<br />

school students are<br />

pondering over. Sophie<br />

Cornish reports<br />

THERE IS a big difference<br />

between convincing your teacher<br />

the dog ate your homework and<br />

persuading them the earth is flat.<br />

What about debating with your<br />

school principal that the country<br />

of Australia doesn’t actually exist?<br />

Highly unlikely.<br />

But for a group of Canterbury<br />

secondary school students,<br />

believing the impossible could<br />

actually be possible is what is<br />

helping them gain their NCEA<br />

qualifications.<br />

This year, a group of 50 students<br />

have delved deep into the<br />

most mind-bending theories<br />

known to man and been forced<br />

to argue they contain truths.<br />

<strong>The</strong> debating assessment,<br />

where students were given a<br />

conspiracy to argue for or against<br />

is part of Rolleston College’s intriguing<br />

new class – conspiracy.<br />

Students are taught to critically<br />

think and question what they<br />

read with a discerning eye, all<br />

while gaining both literacy and<br />

science NCEA credits.<br />

In an age of ‘fake news’ and<br />

unlimited information at their<br />

fingertips, three students, Samuel<br />

Pearson, Joy Su and Ethan<br />

Richards-White, say the class<br />

has prompted new discussions in<br />

their lives and taught them how<br />

to question fact from fiction.<br />

<strong>The</strong> most widely-debated theories<br />

are covered including 9/11,<br />

the moon landing, Illuminati and<br />

the earth being flat.<br />

However, more modern, controversial<br />

and eye-brow raising<br />

discussions also take place in the<br />

classroom.<br />

Do vaccines cause autism? Has<br />

the cure for cancer already been<br />

discovered? Does eating meat<br />

cause cancer?<br />

Split into two components, the<br />

class has just completed the literacy<br />

course and will soon move<br />

into the science assessments.<br />

For literacy, students were<br />

required to create a visual text<br />

which reflected the conflicting<br />

views of a conspiracy.<br />

For Samuel, he showed the contrasting<br />

belief that secret group,<br />

Illuminati, is the higher controller<br />

of the our existence, while Joy<br />

and Ethan debated the theory of<br />

aliens, whether they control us or<br />

are living in the highly-classified,<br />

Area 51.<br />

Along with this, a publicspeaking<br />

assessment saw the class<br />

be divided into groups and given<br />

a topic and viewpoint, which they<br />

were required to debate, all while<br />

being judged by their principal,<br />

Steve Saville.<br />

At first, Joy seemed disappointed<br />

she was given the task<br />

of arguing that vaccines cause<br />

autism.<br />

But, delving into medical<br />

research for the debate made her<br />

realise she may consider medicine<br />

as a career path in future.<br />

“Trying to understand every<br />

medical term was hard. It has<br />

made me more curious about<br />

medicine. It (the class) helps you<br />

to see what your interests are,”<br />

she said.<br />

conspiracy theories<br />

Ethan admitted he got a little<br />

bit sceptical with his debate topic.<br />

“I did the earth is flat, on the affirmative<br />

side. Actually, we won.<br />

Mainly because I bombarded<br />

them with a lot of facts<br />

. . . I got a little bit convinced that<br />

the earth was flat for a bit there,<br />

mainly because I dived deep into<br />

the Flat Earth Society and stuff<br />

and I was like ‘hold on’ . . . but no<br />

. . . I believe that it is round, but<br />

somehow we won that debate,”<br />

he said.<br />

After discussing conspiracies<br />

with his dad, Samuel thought he<br />

would choose the class, to put<br />

an interesting spin on learning<br />

literacy.<br />

“I was looking at something<br />

different; I thought it would be<br />

an interesting thing to look into.<br />

It was things I was in to, writing,<br />

reading, researching, as well as<br />

the science part of it.<br />

“Now, when I see an article<br />

about someone who believes in a<br />

conspiracy theory, because of this<br />

class, you can see that perspective<br />

more. You realise they aren’t just<br />

being funny or seeking attention,<br />

they actually believe this kind of<br />

stuff and you can see if from their<br />

point of view,” he said.<br />

FROM 10:30PM<br />

GREAT CONSPIRACY<br />

THEORIES<br />

1. Illuminati controlling<br />

the world – this conspiracy<br />

proposes a secret group<br />

called Illuminati has been<br />

controlling the world and<br />

is looking to create a one<br />

world government. <strong>The</strong>ir<br />

end goal is supposedly to<br />

create the New World Order,<br />

which will dissolve national<br />

boundaries and people’s<br />

identities, while allowing for<br />

total authoritarian control. It<br />

is alleged several politicians<br />

and celebrities are in the<br />

group, including Beyonce,<br />

Jay-Z and Madonna.<br />

2. <strong>The</strong> moon landing was<br />

a cover-up – Fifty years on,<br />

the hoax theory still exists.<br />

Some people believe the<br />

significant scientific and<br />

political achievement<br />

did not happen and<br />

that its appearance was<br />

orchestrated by NASA<br />

and the United States<br />

Government. <strong>The</strong> motive,<br />

as part of the Cold War,<br />

was allegedly done to raise<br />

national pride and one-up<br />

their arch-rival, the Soviet<br />

Union, and win the Space<br />

Race. <strong>The</strong> most common<br />

theory which leads people<br />

to believe it was fake was<br />

photos from the mission<br />

which show a flag moving<br />

in the wind, something that<br />

should not happen as there<br />

is no wind in space.<br />

3. Who killed JFK? – <strong>The</strong><br />

assassination of American<br />

president, John F. Kennedy<br />

– A large national survey<br />

in the United States in<br />

2013 found 51 per cent of<br />

Americans believe there<br />

was a conspiracy behind<br />

the killing of JFK during a<br />

motorcade in Dallas in 1962.<br />

<strong>The</strong> shooter, Lee Harvey<br />

Oswald, got the official<br />

blame. However, theories<br />

believe other parties such<br />

as the CIA, KGB or the<br />

Mafia, may have played a<br />

role. Other theories suggest<br />

there was more than one<br />

gunman and that more<br />

shots were fired than<br />

officially claimed. Possible<br />

motives include the Bay of<br />

Pigs invasion, a failed US<br />

military invasion of Cuba<br />

by the CIA or that his death<br />

was at the request of vicepresident,<br />

Lyndon Johnson.<br />

4. Was 9/11 an inside<br />

job? – <strong>The</strong> terror attack on<br />

September 11, 2001, caused<br />

one of the most popular<br />

and widely-discussed<br />

conspiracy theories. Multiple<br />

theories of the event have<br />

been discussed, mainly<br />

implicating the United<br />

States’ Government as<br />

causing the attacks in order<br />

to blame al-Qaeda and start<br />

war with Iraq. <strong>The</strong>ories claim<br />

jet fuel from the planes<br />

could not melt the steel<br />

beams of the World Trade<br />

Centre towers, which they<br />

believe was actually brought<br />

down by a controlled<br />

demolition.<br />

5. <strong>The</strong> elusive Area<br />

51 – Conspiracy theorists<br />

believe that the remains of<br />

crashed UFO space crafts<br />

are stored at Area 51. <strong>The</strong><br />

highly-classified mysterious<br />

Air Force base in Nevada, is<br />

where Government scientists<br />

allegedly reverse-engineer<br />

the aliens’ advanced<br />

technology. <strong>The</strong> theories<br />

have come from a variety<br />

of supposed UFO sightings<br />

in the area and testimony<br />

from a retired army colonel,<br />

who says he was given<br />

access to extra-terrestrial<br />

materials gathered from an<br />

alien spacecraft that crashed<br />

in Roswell, New Mexico, in<br />

1947. Some believe that the<br />

Government studies time<br />

travel at Area 51, also known<br />

as Groom Lake.<br />

MAYORAL HOPEFUL Stephen<br />

McPaike will take the plight of<br />

people living in sub-standard<br />

social housing right to the<br />

council chambers today.<br />

Mr McPaike will address city<br />

councillors and Mayor Lianne<br />

Dalziel in the public participation<br />

part of the fortnightly council<br />

meeting.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 34-year-old retail worker<br />

and single parent has lived in<br />

a city council-owned social<br />

housing unit at Haast Courts in<br />

Linwood for the last<br />

three years.<br />

During that time, he<br />

says he has thrown out<br />

two beds due to mould,<br />

in spite of ventilating<br />

his room every day.<br />

He has also resorted<br />

to placing bubble wrap<br />

over his windows to<br />

combat the cold in his<br />

poorly-insulated flat.<br />

THE NUMBER of women<br />

running for the city council is<br />

declining.<br />

Seven out of 46 candidates<br />

standing in the October local<br />

body elections are women – 15<br />

per cent of the total number of<br />

candidates.<br />

This is a decrease from the<br />

2016 elections, when 12 out of 39<br />

council candidates were women<br />

(30 per cent), and in 2013 with<br />

<strong>22</strong> out of 54 candidates (40 per<br />

cent).<br />

Sara Templeton, who was<br />

elected in 2016, believes the<br />

amount of online abuse female<br />

city councillors receive is a<br />

reason for the low numbers.<br />

Female councillors are<br />

subjected to more personal<br />

attacks and scrutiny than their<br />

male counterparts, she says.<br />

“During the last election<br />

campaign, I had people comment<br />

that I had worn the same shirt to<br />

two different candidate meetings,<br />

would that happen to a male<br />

candidate?”<br />

After Cr Templeton was<br />

elected, she also received threats<br />

about being run over and having<br />

faeces left on her lawn.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re is a difference between<br />

general comments about council<br />

and the very personal trolling,”<br />

she said.<br />

councillors are women.<br />

A BY-ELECTION will be needed<br />

after the Banks Peninsula<br />

Community Board failed to<br />

attract enough candidates.<br />

not able to fill one of its two Mt<br />

Howard Needham being the only<br />

candidate to enter after nominations<br />

closed on<br />

Stephen McPaike<br />

Cr Templeton thought it was<br />

important people voted for the<br />

strongest candidates regardless<br />

of their gender. But she said more<br />

women are needed on council.<br />

“It’s really important to have<br />

not only diversity of thought,<br />

but also diversity of experience<br />

and women experience the city<br />

differently to men.”<br />

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said<br />

the anonymous nature of the<br />

internet can encourage abuse<br />

and leave women vulnerable to<br />

being attacked.<br />

“Vicious political campaigns<br />

take place in this anonymous<br />

units. <strong>The</strong>re are some people on<br />

the superannuation who after<br />

paying rent have $40 left,” he<br />

said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> city council has more than<br />

900 units without floor or ceiling<br />

insulation and has been advised<br />

it would cost $14,000 to $<strong>22</strong>,000<br />

to complete the work in each<br />

unit.<br />

<strong>The</strong> deadline for social housing<br />

providers to comply with the<br />

legislation requiring insulation<br />

was July 1, 2016.<br />

<strong>The</strong> law made it compulsory for<br />

all social housing to be insulated<br />

environment, designed to create<br />

a negative image and spread lies,”<br />

Ms Dalziel said.<br />

“Women candidates are<br />

particularly vulnerable in this<br />

environment, particularly in<br />

relation to veiled threats to<br />

personal safety, and I believe this<br />

contributes to the question asked<br />

by a number of women: Why<br />

would you put yourself through<br />

that?”<br />

City councillor and former<br />

mayor Vicki Buck said she<br />

tried to steer clear of abusive<br />

comments online.<br />

She thought the prospect of<br />

unless it was not practicable<br />

to do so. In 2016, the council<br />

assessed its <strong>22</strong>24 properties and<br />

fitted units with insulation where<br />

possible, but 930 were left uninsulated.<br />

Tenants in these units,<br />

including Mr McPaike, were left<br />

to put up with freezing and damp<br />

conditions. In today’s meeting,<br />

the city council will discuss<br />

options to accelerate the process<br />

to make un-insulated social<br />

housing drier and warmer.<br />

With current funding, the city<br />

council can do this by June 20<strong>22</strong>.<br />

Women shy away from council<br />

CONCERN: City councillor Sara Templeton believes the<br />

online abuse of female councillors is putting women off<br />

running for the city council. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

online abuse would put a lot of<br />

people off running for the city<br />

council.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> one thing that may be<br />

disconcerting, not just to women,<br />

but to a number of people is the<br />

degree of negative comments<br />

people feel that they are entitled<br />

to make when referring to city<br />

councillors,” she said.<br />

City councillor Pauline Cotter<br />

thought there were other reasons<br />

which may contribute to less<br />

women running for the city<br />

council.<br />

“I think it’s a known fact<br />

that women are not so good at<br />

pushing themselves forward proactively<br />

as men are, so that may<br />

be another reason,” she said.<br />

City councillor Anne Galloway<br />

said she has not encountered any<br />

abuse in her time on council but<br />

is aware it is out there.<br />

She said financial barriers<br />

could also put women off<br />

running.<br />

“It costs a decent amount<br />

of money to run for local<br />

government,” she said.<br />

THIS IS what Lyttelton’s new<br />

Collett’s Corner will look like<br />

when it opens in 20<strong>22</strong>.<br />

New images show the 2710<br />

sq m, two-storey building set for<br />

London St, which will include<br />

a wellness centre, community<br />

concierge, hospitality, retail, coworking<br />

space<br />

and apartments.<br />

Ohu Development<br />

is behind<br />

the project,<br />

and ran New<br />

Zealand’s first<br />

crowdfunding<br />

campaign to help<br />

pay for it.<br />

During the<br />

five-week campaign, 370 people<br />

invested a total of $504,000.<br />

As the minimum goal of<br />

$300,000 was met, the project<br />

could go ahead. However, because<br />

the $2 million target was<br />

not met, the opening was pushed<br />

back from 2020 to 20<strong>22</strong>.<br />

Ohu Development founding<br />

partner Camia Young said in order<br />

to raise the remaining funds<br />

the business will take on a bank<br />

loan and look into further equity.<br />

Meanwhile, developers and local<br />

real estate agent Vicki Tahau<br />

Paton are aiming to seek tenants<br />

interested in leasing commercial<br />

spaces and residents to buy<br />

apartments in September.<br />

<strong>The</strong> majority of the building<br />

must be either pre-leased or presold<br />

in order for developers to<br />

take on a bank loan.<br />

<strong>The</strong> basement will be home<br />

to the wellness centre, which is<br />

envisioned to have hot and cold<br />

baths, a sauna, a steam room and<br />

therapy rooms.<br />

On the ground floor, there will<br />

likely be a gym, retail, hospitality<br />

and consultation rooms.<br />

On floors one and two, there<br />

will be 18 studio apartments<br />

and eight single-bedroom apartments,<br />

and a rooftop terrace will<br />

be exclusive to residents.<br />

Lyttelton complex designs released<br />

Camia<br />

Young<br />

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

apartments will look like.<br />

$590,000 depending on the size<br />

and location of the space.<br />

Lyttelton Residents’ Association<br />

chairman Ken Maynard<br />

said he was concerned the complex<br />

was not aimed at locals.<br />

“It’s a fairly personal opinion,<br />

not one for the association . . .<br />

but I don’t think this is what we<br />

needed,” he said.<br />

“It’s quite big, it’s taller than<br />

the other buildings in the street<br />

and I thought one of the features<br />

which was going to be attractive<br />

was the roof garden – but its<br />

actually for the tenants.”<br />

Founding partner Camia<br />

Young said she would have loved<br />

for the rooftop to be open to the<br />

public, however, the city council<br />

“would never allow it” due to<br />

health and safety requirements.<br />

“That was one of the major issues<br />

that was in the city council<br />

requirements for the rooftop<br />

terrace,” Ms Young said.<br />

Resource consent is now pending<br />

for the new designs, which<br />

were modified after the city<br />

council requested changes.<br />

“I’m dancing with every policy<br />

and requirement out there,” she<br />

said.<br />

Samoa police<br />

being reviewed<br />

by city cop<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

CANTERBURY’S top cop is<br />

conducting a review of the police in<br />

Samoa after its police commissioner<br />

faced more than 200 criminal<br />

charges, including inciting murder.<br />

Superintendent John Price will<br />

wrap up the review and return to<br />

his normal role as Canterbury district<br />

commander next month.<br />

Samoa Police Service commissioner<br />

Fuiavailili Egon Keil was<br />

suspended in <strong>August</strong> 2016 after four<br />

criminal charges were laid against<br />

him, including the unlawful use of<br />

weapons, as well as the unlawful<br />

arrest of a man.<br />

<strong>The</strong> charges were dismissed two<br />

months later due to insufficient<br />

evidence and he was reinstated.<br />

He was then arrested again in<br />

the same month, on more than<br />

200 charges, following a separate<br />

investigation, including charges<br />

of possession of illegal firearms and<br />

one of inciting murder.<br />

In February 2017, all charges were<br />

dropped, by the Supreme Court of<br />

Samoa, due to insufficient evidence.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Attorney-General had hired a<br />

private prosecutor, Christchurchbased<br />

Nigel Hampton QC, who<br />

asked the court to withdraw the<br />

charges due to reasons relating<br />

to witness interviews and lack of<br />

appropriate legal advice, that was not<br />

sought before the charges were laid.<br />

OPINION 17<br />

When bank robberies were the norm<br />

THE ROBBERY of Kiwibank in<br />

Parklands last week was sort of a<br />

blast from the past.<br />

Bank hold-ups, thankfully,<br />

are relatively uncommon these<br />

days. Dairies are now a primary<br />

target, usually by teenagers in<br />

groups after cigarettes, cash and<br />

anything else they can grab.<br />

But there was a time when<br />

banks and the security vans<br />

which would pick up and drop of<br />

large amounts of cash were the<br />

targets.<br />

Most of the robbers who<br />

targeted banks were wellorganised,<br />

experienced<br />

criminals, often linked to gangs,<br />

and armed with cut down<br />

shotguns or rifles. An influx of<br />

drugs, particularly cocaine, was<br />

often the reason for the need for<br />

lots of quick cash.<br />

<strong>The</strong> robbers knew what they<br />

were doing and getting in and<br />

out as quickly as possible without<br />

incident was paramount – but<br />

that was no consolation for the<br />

terror endured by bank staff,<br />

customers and security guards.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re were also the lone wolf<br />

From the<br />

editor’s desk<br />

Barry Clarke<br />

robbers. One individual stole the<br />

same motor-cycle parked in the<br />

central city on two occasions to<br />

rob banks. He was believed to<br />

have been a fairly well-known<br />

sportsman at the time, but police<br />

were never able to get enough<br />

evidence to arrest him.<br />

<strong>The</strong>n there was the guy<br />

disguised in a clown mask<br />

who shot himself in the foot,<br />

figuratively speaking.<br />

Armed, he turned up at a<br />

Stanmore Rd, Richmond, bank<br />

– minutes before it was due to<br />

open. He couldn’t get in. Threats<br />

and gesturing didn’t convince<br />

the staff to open the main door.<br />

He fled on foot, dropping the<br />

mask as he ran. Police caught<br />

him soon after.<br />

And then there was the late<br />

Wayne Beri, prime suspect for<br />

the Aulsebrooks payroll robbery,<br />

and an individual who spent<br />

most of his adult life in prison<br />

(where he died of a heart attack)<br />

for drug dealing.<br />

Beri had been released on<br />

work parole into the sponsorship<br />

of someone police also kept a<br />

fairly close eye on. How that was<br />

signed off is anybody’s guess.<br />

Police began to bug phones<br />

after hearing through the<br />

grapevine Beri’s time on work<br />

parole could be put to another<br />

use – robbery.<br />

Security vans delivering<br />

and picking up money from<br />

Christchurch banks were<br />

believed to be the target.<br />

During the bugging, they<br />

also picked up something more<br />

sinister: Police heard a man<br />

who had known Beri from years<br />

before asking him to murder his<br />

wife.<br />

Most people just get divorced.<br />

Police swooped, numerous<br />

people were arrested, including<br />

the woman’s husband, and the<br />

intended victim was put into<br />

a place of safety. Police were<br />

later unable to proceed on the<br />

attempting to procure a murder<br />

charge in court on a technicality.<br />

<strong>The</strong> evidence from the bugging<br />

was ruled inadmissible and the<br />

husband walked free.<br />

A few years later, when I was<br />

interviewing Beri by phone from<br />

prison for a life and times of<br />

Wayne Beri-type article, I asked<br />

him if he would have killed the<br />

woman: “No,” he said sharply.<br />

“But I might have burnt her<br />

house down.” Mmm.<br />

During the interview, he did<br />

reveal he once held up a bank in<br />

Sydney – while on a sports trip.<br />

Beri was a good rugby league<br />

player here in Christchurch, and<br />

his club side went across the<br />

Tasman on an end-of-season<br />

type trip.<br />

While his teammates were<br />

elsewhere, Beri told me he held<br />

up the bank. He went straight to<br />

the counter, was very aggressive,<br />

made out he had a weapon and<br />

was out with the cash in super<br />

quick time.<br />

But one of the more audacious<br />

bank heists here in Christchurch<br />

I can recall wasn’t actually a<br />

robbery. A man dressed as a<br />

security guard went into a bank<br />

just before a scheduled pick<br />

up. He was so plausible and<br />

convincing, bank staff handed<br />

him the cash. He calmly walked<br />

out of the bank and he and the<br />

money were never seen again.<br />

That’s planning.<br />

Maternal drug use study reveals<br />

poor outcome for children<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

INCREASED OPIOID and other<br />

drug use by pregnant women is<br />

affecting children’s readiness for<br />

learning when they start school,<br />

new research has discovered.<br />

Canterbury University<br />

professor Lianne Woodward<br />

has recently completed a fiveyear<br />

study looking into the<br />

development of babies affected<br />

by their mothers’<br />

drug use.<br />

Prof<br />

Woodward<br />

studied 100<br />

babies whose<br />

mothers took<br />

methadone to<br />

treat opioid<br />

Lianne<br />

Woodward<br />

NEWS<br />

dependence and<br />

110 babies whose<br />

mothers did not.<br />

With PhD graduate Dr<br />

Samantha Lee, Prof Woodward<br />

followed the babies from birth<br />

to four and a half years old,<br />

with researchers assessing the<br />

children’s physical and motor<br />

development, social-emotional<br />

skills, approaches to learning,<br />

language, and cognitive<br />

functioning.<br />

“Opioid use in New Zealand<br />

is on the rise, so the hope is<br />

that this study can contribute<br />

to health and education services<br />

planning to help support the<br />

needs of these children and<br />

their families,” Prof Woodward<br />

said.<br />

“We wanted to understand<br />

not only the effects of maternal<br />

substance use during pregnancy<br />

on children’s development but<br />

also how social disadvantage and<br />

other medical and family factors<br />

might contribute to difficulties.”<br />

Prof Woodward is an<br />

international expert in child<br />

developmental psychology.<br />

Her study, Health and Neuro<br />

development of Children Born<br />

to Opioid Dependent Mothers<br />

at School Entry, looks at the<br />

extent and the mix of mothers’<br />

substance use as well other social<br />

and biological factors.<br />

news online at www.star.kiwi<br />

<strong>The</strong> results found that over<br />

70 per cent of children born to<br />

opioid-dependent mothers had at<br />

least one health or developmental<br />

difficulty that would likely<br />

impact their schooling,<br />

compared to 29 per cent of<br />

children drawn from the general<br />

population.<br />

Multiple problems were also<br />

common, affecting 48 per cent<br />

of methadone-exposed children<br />

compared with 15 per cent of<br />

control-group children.<br />

<strong>The</strong> research showed the<br />

more substance used during<br />

pregnancy, the worse the<br />

outcomes for children.<br />

However, with early targeted<br />

help for these children and their<br />

families, children’s outcomes can<br />

be improved.<br />

“It is clear from our results<br />

that when there is good support<br />

for the family and the family<br />

is coping with the challenges<br />

of parenting, their children do<br />

well,” she said.<br />

“We can mitigate the<br />

long-term risks associated<br />

with opioids and other forms<br />

of maternal drug use during<br />

pregnancy, but we need early<br />

developmental surveillance<br />

and intervention to identify<br />

those who will benefit from<br />

support.”<br />

Thursday <strong>August</strong> <strong>22</strong> <strong>2019</strong> <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

I WAS WRONG last week, so I’d<br />

best correct myself.<br />

<strong>The</strong> church in Laura’s home village<br />

of Pravisdomini is about 1000<br />

years old, rather than 600, and<br />

was built some time after Attila<br />

the Hun and his band of merry<br />

men “toured” an ageing Roman<br />

Empire.<br />

Apparently there’s also a whole<br />

mess of the bones of Vittoria’s<br />

ancestors a metre or so under the<br />

church lawn too.<br />

Vittoria’s been living the high<br />

life this last week.<br />

After recovering from the side<br />

effects of antibiotics, she’s been<br />

accompanying us on a fairly busy<br />

circuit of friends, family, nearby<br />

towns and villages.<br />

She’s been cuddled near to<br />

death by the older rellies, having<br />

a blast with the younger family<br />

members and running amok with<br />

the kids of our friends who are of<br />

a similar age.<br />

<strong>The</strong> exercise is key with an appetite<br />

like hers. We always knew<br />

Vittoria was a good wee eater, but<br />

she’s honestly eating almost as<br />

much as us adults.<br />

It’s so great to see after she<br />

was off her food the first week,<br />

however, I doubt any of us will be<br />

coming back any lighter.<br />

<strong>The</strong> big meals have been put to<br />

good use in fuelling an increase in<br />

VITTORIA<br />

& Matt<br />

Food, family and words<br />

Vittoria’s communication skills.<br />

She has definitively mastered<br />

the word “this” and can now ask<br />

you to “do this” or ask “what’s<br />

this?” accompanied by furious<br />

pointing. She’s also begun playing<br />

with the words “rubbish” and<br />

“finished”, although I’m still not<br />

sure she’s got it yet. It just kind of<br />

sounds like “ish” either way.<br />

And it’s not just output that I’ve<br />

noticed. With Italian (or the local<br />

brand Venetian spoken by most of<br />

Laura’s relatives) surrounding her<br />

almost all day, every day, Vittoria<br />

can now understand a few phrases<br />

and respond accordingly.<br />

I mean respond physically – like<br />

she’ll probably wander over if you<br />

ask her to in Italian – not verbally.<br />

She’s also starting to get into<br />

the Italian childrens’ time frame,<br />

which I’m not sure is exactly ideal.<br />

Up at 6.30am, a leisurely postlunch<br />

nap at 2pm-ish and then<br />

pushing the boundaries until almost<br />

10pm if she can get away with it.<br />

While I’m excited to try and<br />

keep using as much Italian as<br />

possible when we return home,<br />

I think I might see about leaving<br />

the timetable behind.<br />

Song solo highlight from US camp<br />

IT WAS a busy three weeks at<br />

theatre camp in Michigan for St<br />

Margaret’s College student Lara<br />

Chiswell.<br />

Lara applied to the camp<br />

with a videotaped audition, and<br />

she was offered a place on the<br />

Musical <strong>The</strong>atre Golden Age<br />

Revue Summer programme in<br />

Interlochen, Michigan.<br />

Interlochen Arts Camp is held<br />

annually over the United States’<br />

summer break, and each year<br />

thousands of artists and arts<br />

patrons travel to Interlochen<br />

for world-class education and<br />

cultural opportunities.<br />

Students can study music,<br />

theatre, visual arts, film,<br />

creative writing and dance at the<br />

camp.<br />

Over the three-week course,<br />

the students were required to<br />

learn 20 pieces of golden age<br />

musical theatre.<br />

Golden age musical theatre is<br />

considered to be from the 1940s<br />

to the 1950s.<br />

It’s a long way from Lara’s<br />

home in Strowan to the camp in<br />

Michigan, and she described the<br />

time away as “busy.”<br />

“Our days were very busy<br />

starting class at 8am then<br />

carrying on to 11.45am,” she<br />

said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> students would then have<br />

a lunch break until 1pm and<br />

then have practice period, where<br />

they had their own time to go<br />

YOUNG, SUCCESSFUL<br />

& on the move<br />

SOLO: Lara Chiswell (centre) was one of two girls at the<br />

Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan to sing a solo in the final<br />

show of the camp. ​<br />

21<br />

over dances or harmonies in<br />

songs.<br />

<strong>The</strong>ir classes would resume<br />

at 2pm and finish at 5pm for a<br />

dinner break. From 6.30-9pm<br />

there would be night practices<br />

and then it was bedtime at<br />

9.30pm.<br />

At the end of the three weeks,<br />

the students put on a performance<br />

and Lara was one of just<br />

two girls to be given a singing<br />

solo.<br />

“During my time here (theatre<br />

camp) I learned so much and<br />

made some amazing friends. It<br />

was incredible to be around such<br />

like-minded people. My time at<br />

Interlochen has been the best 3<br />

weeks of my life.”<br />

SELWYN SOUNDS 25<br />

Icehouse will wind the clock back<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

FEW BANDS can boast opening<br />

for David Bowie just six years<br />

after forming.<br />

But for front man Iva Davies<br />

and his band Icehouse, this is<br />

exactly what happened.<br />

<strong>The</strong> award-winning Australian<br />

rock outfit will bring their hitfilled<br />

set to Selwyn Sounds on<br />

March 7 next year.<br />

Icehouse’s line-up has changed<br />

many times since forming as<br />

Flowers more than 40 years ago.<br />

Davies has been there since the<br />

beginning.<br />

He said years of on-stage<br />

experience and songwriting<br />

would be encapsulated in<br />

the band’s Selwyn Sounds<br />

performance.<br />

“I’ve been working with some<br />

of these guys for 35 years and<br />

they are absolutely the most brilliant<br />

set of musicians that Australia<br />

has to offer, I’m completely<br />

confident in saying that.”<br />

Davies said the band was very<br />

selective with where they played<br />

these days, but they wanted to<br />

play Selwyn Sounds because<br />

New Zealand audiences had<br />

always been some of their biggest<br />

supporters.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> kind of relationship that<br />

we have with New Zealand is<br />

quite a special one because in the<br />

80s when we were in full swing,<br />

ENERGY: Iva Davies, front man of Australian band Icehouse, will perform at Selwyn<br />

Sounds at Lincoln Domain in March.<br />

PHOTO: TONY MOTT<br />

we noted even then per head of<br />

population we actually had more<br />

success in New Zealand than<br />

anywhere else in the world.”<br />

But, it is fair to say Icehouse’s<br />

music has been heard and appreciated<br />

by audiences all over<br />

the world.<br />

Davies said the turnaround<br />

from being a band of 20-something<br />

year olds $18,000 in debt to<br />

their management, to achieving<br />

international success had not<br />

been easy.<br />

“It was just ridiculously hard<br />

work.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> first album [Icehouse<br />

when the band was still called<br />

Flowers] was a massive success<br />

in Australia, it was the highestselling<br />

debut album by any Australian<br />

band at that point . . . I<br />

remember when that first royalty<br />

cheque turned up. At that point<br />

I actually had no home, I was<br />

kind of couch surfing and under<br />

duress living in my parents home<br />

which I hated doing.<br />

“When that first album came<br />

out it was a big success and of<br />

course, we were able to pay off<br />

that debt and end up finally<br />

earning some money.”<br />

Davies said he didn’t believe<br />

the money would keep rolling<br />

in and certainly not that three<br />

years later Icehouse would have<br />

to choose between touring with<br />

David Bowie or Peter Gabriel.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y decided to support Bowie<br />

on his 1983 Serious Moonlight<br />

European tour.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> sheer scale of it was just<br />

beyond comprehension when<br />

you’re playing to 70,000 people<br />

every show that you do . . . I remember<br />

pulling into one big outdoor<br />

show and there were about<br />

10 coaches, 10 buses . . . my<br />

kind of head exploded because I<br />

couldn’t conceive 10 buses full of<br />

crew working on a single show.”<br />

Davies said the Selwyn Sounds<br />

crowd could expect Icehouse to<br />

wind back the clock and put on<br />

a performance with just as much<br />

energy as they brought all those<br />

years ago.<br />

GARDENING ADVICE<br />

Today’s winning question came<br />

from Jun Wan. Congratulations!<br />

How do I deal with strawberry<br />

runners? Keep them or dump<br />

Q<br />

them? I know sometimes we<br />

need to remove them to keep<br />

the energy mainly into fruiting, and other<br />

times keep them as future strawberry<br />

plants (we replace our existing plants<br />

every three years). What is<br />

the general rule for<br />

runners of strawberries?<br />

For growing advice and information on<br />

products visit www.daltons.co.nz<br />

A<br />

Winter is the time for replanting the strawberry patch. Commercial growers<br />

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

recommended that once strawberry plants have been in the garden<br />

for two growing seasons, they should be replaced. As older plants<br />

produce an abundance of runners, it’s important to remove<br />

the healthiest and most vigorous-growing of the runners to replace your<br />

old strawberry plants. A way to do this is to monitor your plants during<br />

the summer fruiting season and tag the best performers eg: heaviest<br />

cropping and best fl avoured strawberries. You can then divide the<br />

runners from these plants for next season.<br />

When it comes to strawberries for the family, it is almost impossible<br />

to have too many strawberry plants! Excess runners can also be<br />

used to extend the strawberry patch or be given to friends.<br />

Remember to prepare new planting areas thoroughly by adding<br />

Daltons Garden Time Compost to the soil and raise the beds<br />

at least 100mm above the existing soil level. This allows the soil to<br />

warm quicker in spring. Your new plants should be spaced around<br />

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

around plants.<br />

Williams to direct<br />

Court production<br />

AFTER DIRECTING work around the<br />

world, Anthea Williams is returning to the<br />

city for her debut at <strong>The</strong> Court <strong>The</strong>atre in<br />

homegrown comedy, <strong>The</strong> Pink Hammer.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> Court is the company that made<br />

me realise I wanted to be a director,” said<br />

Williams, talking about her decision to<br />

travel across the ditch for the production.<br />

Williams, now based in Sydney, is back<br />

for <strong>The</strong> Pink Hammer; a Kiwi comedy<br />

about five misfits who come together for an<br />

“empowering” women’s carpentry course<br />

that goes hilariously awry.<br />

•<strong>The</strong> Pink Hammer will run at <strong>The</strong><br />

Court <strong>The</strong>atre from September 7 to<br />

October 5.<br />

Teaching children Pasifika heritage<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-<br />

Harding<br />

WHEN TALIA-RAE Mavaega<br />

travels to primary schools<br />

nationally as a performer she<br />

often finds it “disappointing”<br />

to learn how little children<br />

know about Pasifika’s rich<br />

culture.<br />

Having toured nationally<br />

with Duffy Books in Homes,<br />

she has found some schoolchildren<br />

have never heard<br />

of Samoa or Tonga or where<br />

New Zealand is located in the<br />

Pacific.<br />

In a bid to educate children<br />

on Pasifika’s heritage, Mavaega<br />

is one of three performers<br />

from theatre company Y NOT<br />

travelling to schools across<br />

Canterbury to share some<br />

of Samoa, Tonga and New<br />

Zealand’s most well-known<br />

legends.<br />

Directed by Gregory<br />

Cooper, the theatre company<br />

has collaborated with <strong>The</strong><br />

Court <strong>The</strong>atre to present O Le<br />

Malaga Fa’a’Atua (<strong>The</strong> Journey<br />

of the Gods).<br />

<strong>The</strong> multilingual production<br />

will be touring across Canterbury<br />

primary schools until<br />

September 13 and will feature<br />

Jake Arona and Mana Tatafu,<br />

alongside Mavaega.<br />

When asked by <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

if education on the Pacific<br />

could be better, she said: “I<br />

think there is always room<br />

for improvement, I just<br />

think Pasifika culture isn’t<br />

implemented as much.”<br />

But Mavaega said: “<strong>The</strong> cool<br />

thing is most of the kids once<br />

they are given the opportunity<br />

to learn a new word or whatever<br />

they just jump on it which<br />

is awesome.”<br />

Based on a fusion of myths,<br />

the O Le Malaga Fa’a’Atua<br />

(<strong>The</strong> Journey of the Gods)<br />

follows the story of demigod<br />

Maui’s quest to prove himself<br />

worthy of becoming a fullyfledged<br />

God.<br />

Mavaega, who is of Samoan<br />

heritage, will play the role<br />

of Sina based on the famous<br />

Polynesian myth Sina and the<br />

Eel, which explains the origins<br />

of the first coconut tree.<br />

But she said the message she<br />

is hoping children will walk<br />

away with is to make the right<br />

choices to be kind to others<br />

and be the best they can be.<br />

<strong>The</strong> message stems from<br />

when Maui (who is based on a<br />

demigod from Maori mythology)<br />

is faced with the decision<br />

to either gain for himself or<br />

help people forever.<br />

Mavaega said while the<br />

majority of schools it is<br />

travelling to may not have the<br />

population of Pacific students,<br />

it is “awesome” it can share<br />

with children who have not<br />

experienced the culture.<br />

Fortunately, times have<br />

changed since Mavaega’s<br />

grandfather moved to New<br />

Zealand between the 1930s-<br />

1940s.<br />

Back then, she said children<br />

were told off and beaten for<br />

SPELL-BINDING:<br />

Talia-Rae Mavaega<br />

will feature in new<br />

show O Le Malaga<br />

Fa’a’Atua (<strong>The</strong> Journey<br />

of the Gods). <strong>The</strong> show<br />

is touring around<br />

Canterbury primary<br />

schools to teach<br />

children about the rich<br />

Pasifika culture.<br />

speaking the Samoan and<br />

had to sacrifice their language<br />

to adapt to New Zealand<br />

language.<br />

“We are so lucky human<br />

rights is now a thing,”<br />

Mavaega said.<br />

Y NOT was established in<br />

2017 to bring more Pasifika<br />

theatre into the city’s art<br />

scene.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are four available<br />

performances for schools to<br />

attend the show.<br />

AVOCADO BAKED EGGS<br />

WITH PARSNIP, PEA,<br />

AND PANCETTA HASH<br />

Ingredients<br />

4 eggs<br />

2 ripe avocados<br />

1/2 cup pancetta, cubed<br />

2 medium parsnips, or about 3<br />

cups cubed<br />

1/2 cup green peas<br />

1 tsp dried thyme<br />

Sea salt<br />

Black pepper<br />

Directions<br />

Remove eggs from the<br />

refrigerator and allow to come<br />

to room temperature (15-<br />

20min). Preheat oven to 210<br />

deg C.<br />

Run a knife down the center<br />

of the avocados and carefully<br />

twist into two halves. Remove<br />

and discard the stone(s). Scoop<br />

a small amount of the avocado<br />

from the center to provide a<br />

large enough hole for your egg<br />

(save for topping the finished<br />

dish).<br />

Using a sheet of foil, crumble<br />

into a “nest” for your avocado<br />

to rest on without rolling over.<br />

Place avocados face up on a<br />

baking sheet.<br />

Crack one egg at a time into<br />

a small bowl, then carefully tip<br />

into the avocado. Don’t worry if<br />

a little bit of the whites overflow.<br />

Carefully place the baking<br />

sheet into a hot oven, allowing<br />

to bake for about 20min. Keep<br />

a careful eye on the eggs after<br />

about 15min. Meanwhile, cube<br />

the pancetta and add to a pan<br />

heated over medium-high.<br />

Peel and cube parsnip and<br />

add to pan, along with salt,<br />

pepper, and dried thyme. Saute<br />

over medium heat for about<br />

10min, until pancetta is crispy<br />

SPORT<br />

SOMETHING VERY sacred<br />

was taken from me when New<br />

Zealand Cricket released its<br />

domestic cricket schedule for the<br />

upcoming summer.<br />

Forget the Black Caps<br />

twenty20 internationals and<br />

the Black Clash cash-grab.<br />

When it comes to viewing<br />

cricket over summer, there’s<br />

nothing better than grabbing<br />

a couple of mates, filling a<br />

backpack with a box of your<br />

preferred poison and Lime<br />

scootering down to Hagley Oval<br />

for a day in the sun while sinking<br />

tins and enjoying the mediocrity<br />

of four-day domestic cricket.<br />

<strong>The</strong> best occasions would<br />

finish with a trip to the Pegasus<br />

Arms for a few more pints and<br />

a Sunday roast before passing<br />

out in bed at an earlier than<br />

respectable hour.<br />

I like to call it a dream Sunday<br />

– the best way to spend the day<br />

before going back to the grind on<br />

Monday.<br />

Bowling through a sleepy start<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> looks back each<br />

week at Canterbury’s<br />

sporting icons from<br />

yesteryear. This week<br />

Gordon Findlater talks to<br />

former left-arm orthodox<br />

bowler Mark Priest<br />

FALLING ASLEEP on the first<br />

day of the job was the beginning<br />

of a long and successful domestic<br />

cricket career for Mark Priest.<br />

Priest, 58, played more than<br />

200 first-class and one-day<br />

games between 1984 and 1999.<br />

<strong>The</strong> slow left-arm orthodox<br />

bowler took 290 first-class<br />

wickets for Canterbury – a<br />

record which stood until this<br />

year when it was broken by legspinner<br />

Todd Astle.<br />

However, after his first call-up<br />

to the Canterbury side as 12th<br />

man, Priest was better known<br />

at the time for his ability to take<br />

an afternoon nap rather than<br />

wickets.<br />

“I went up to Napier for a<br />

three-day match. I was the<br />

12th man and I fell asleep in<br />

the dressing room, so that was<br />

it for about two years until I<br />

got another opportunity,” said<br />

Priest.<br />

He played his first cricket for<br />

his dad’s team at Harewood<br />

before joining the Papanui High<br />

first XI, where a highlight was<br />

upsetting Christ’s College.<br />

In his early years with the<br />

Canterbury squad, Priest battled<br />

for the spinner’s spot with the<br />

likes of Stephen Boock, Garry<br />

MacDonald and Andrew Nuttall.<br />

In 1990 he went on New<br />

Zealand’s tour of England. He<br />

made his test debut in a draw<br />

with England in the first test at<br />

Nottingham. He took one wicket<br />

from his 12 overs, but was not<br />

included in the two remaining<br />

tests.<br />

Priest went on to play just<br />

two more tests for New Zealand<br />

over an eight-year period.<br />

He also played in 18 one-day<br />

internationals during the<br />

same period. One of his most<br />

memorable call-ups to the Black<br />

Caps came in 1998 when he was<br />

brought into the squad the night<br />

before a match against Australia<br />

at Eden Park after Daniel Vettori<br />

suffered an injury. At the time,<br />

Priest had just finished playing<br />

with Canterbury in Timaru.<br />

“Every time the selectors rang<br />

I didn’t believe it was them<br />

because a friend of mine Joe<br />

Harrison used to ring me up and<br />

have me on. He was really good<br />

at impersonating the selectors,”<br />

said Priest.<br />

“We’d just had a couple of<br />

pints at the end of the day and I<br />

get a call. He says ‘it’s Ross Dykes<br />

here’ and I went ‘oh yeah, yeah<br />

right’ . . . I just thought it was Joe<br />

‘Dream Sundays’ at the cricket not an option this summer<br />

One-eyed Cantab<br />

Gordon Findlater<br />

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi<br />

However, it won’t be<br />

happening this summer.<br />

When the domestic cricket<br />

calendar was released last<br />

week it contained a lack of<br />

dream Sundays – none in fact.<br />

Canterbury will play just two<br />

four-day games at Hagley.<br />

One from Monday-Thursday<br />

in October and another from<br />

being a dick . . . I got a knock on<br />

my door about 11.30 that night<br />

and it was [Canterbury coach]<br />

Garry MacDonald, who told<br />

me Ross Dykes had called him<br />

and I needed to be in Auckland<br />

tomorrow.<br />

“At about 2am, I took the team<br />

van and drove to Christchurch,<br />

got a flight at about seven in the<br />

morning and then went straight<br />

to Eden Park and played.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> lack of sleep didn’t appear<br />

to bother Priest. He produced<br />

one of his best bowling performances<br />

for New Zealand with<br />

figures of 2-32 from 10 overs,<br />

including the wickets of Steve<br />

Waugh and Darren Lehmann to<br />

Wednesday-Saturday in March.<br />

To rub salt into the wound, they<br />

will play two four-day matches<br />

in Rangiora, both of which<br />

include a Sunday.<br />

To make matters worse,<br />

Canterbury’s four home 50 over<br />

matches – which will have free<br />

entry – will all be played on week<br />

days.<br />

I understand not many people<br />

go to watch domestic cricket<br />

these days, but it’s hard to argue<br />

any effort is being made to<br />

change that with a log jam of<br />

mid-week games.<br />

We should be embracing free<br />

entry and BYO food and drink<br />

help New Zealand to a 30-run<br />

victory. Priest was also handy<br />

with the bat. He scored 3945<br />

first-class runs, including four<br />

centuries, for Canterbury at an<br />

average of 30.58. He also scored<br />

a number of runs for Canterbury<br />

in one-day matches, but never<br />

got a century.<br />

However, he and many others<br />

at Lancaster Park thought he<br />

had scored a famous ton during<br />

a Shell Cup match, only to later<br />

discover there was an error with<br />

the scoreboard and he in fact was<br />

left on 98 not-out.<br />

“In those days you didn’t get<br />

too much opportunity to bat<br />

because when we had the full<br />

strength I used to bat 10,” said<br />

Priest.<br />

For a large chunk of his cricket<br />

career, Priest also worked as<br />

an electrician, and is still selfemployed<br />

in the trade. He also<br />

had a brief spell running a cafe<br />

on Colombo St with his wife<br />

before the 2011 earthquake.<br />

Priest says “playing cricket<br />

is the best job you could ever<br />

have” but one thing he admits he<br />

doesn’t miss is bowling to Craig<br />

McMillan during net sessions.<br />

“He was always trying to slog<br />

you out of the nets . . . I’d bowl<br />

until I got him out and then<br />

I wouldn’t bowl to him again<br />

because once you got him out<br />

he’d start slogging you over the<br />

stand,” said Priest.<br />

for our longer-form domestic<br />

cricket games. Why take a kid<br />

too footy when you can take a<br />

box to Hagley?<br />

But if you’re one of these<br />

new-age types who fizzes over<br />

twenty20 cricket, you’re in luck.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Canterbury Kings have five<br />

matches at Hagley, including<br />

three double-headers with the<br />

Magicians.<br />

However, you’ll be charged to<br />

enter due to your poor taste in<br />

preference of cricket format and<br />

pay close to $10 each time you<br />

want to wet your whistle.<br />

RIVALRY: Hornby Panthers half Tevin Arona and Linwood Keas captain Paul Sauni will<br />

square off when their sides decide the Pat Smith Trophy. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

Linwood and Hornby<br />

reignite title rivalry<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

FOR A FOURTH straight year,<br />

the Linwood Keas and Hornby<br />

Panthers will battle to decide the<br />

Pat Smith Trophy on Sunday.<br />

When the two sides meet at<br />

Nga Puna Wai – the new home<br />

of Canterbury Rugby League –<br />

Linwood will look to claim an<br />

extremely rare fourth straight<br />

crown, while Hornby will try to<br />

remove a growing monkey off<br />

their back.<br />

Linwood dominated<br />

the 2016 (29-10) and<br />

2017 (34-20) finals.<br />

However, last year<br />

Hornby led by 12 late in<br />

the game before three<br />

Linwood tries saw them<br />

claim a dramatic 20-16<br />

triumph to complete an<br />

undefeated season.<br />

Since then, Hornby<br />

have been on a mission<br />

to return to the<br />

grand-final for another shot at<br />

redemption.<br />

“We talked about it in the<br />

shed after that final. We wanted<br />

to make a commitment with<br />

each other. I was keen to stick<br />

around and the boys were keen<br />

to stick around,” said Hornby<br />

coach Jed Lawrie.<br />

In some friendly build-up<br />

to the match, teenage Hornby<br />

forward Caius Faatili – who<br />

goes to St Thomas of Canterbury<br />

College – has been rallying<br />

together a group of students to<br />

Jed Lawrie<br />

great beer,<br />

great food and<br />

great service<br />

cheer on his side. Linwood are<br />

coached by Andrew Auimatagi,<br />

who is also a teacher at St<br />

Thomas’.<br />

“In assembly on Monday,<br />

(Faatili) made a public<br />

announcement looking to get<br />

the whole school down to Nga<br />

Puna Wai dressed in black<br />

to support him against me. I<br />

thought that was quite funny,”<br />

said Auimatagi.<br />

If they win a fourth<br />

consecutive title,<br />

Linwood will<br />

join an elite club<br />

which includes<br />

Sydenham (1953-<br />

56), Hornby<br />

(1964-67) and<br />

Papanui (1971-<br />

74).<br />

“We haven’t<br />

talked too much<br />

about the history<br />

of the four-peat,<br />

but it will be<br />

on their minds . . . the boys<br />

are just a competitive bunch.<br />

Right from preseason, they’re<br />

always looking to be better,” said<br />

Auimatagi.<br />

This year Hornby defeated<br />

Linwood 20-12 in their first<br />

meeting in April. However,<br />

Linwood won the next<br />

encounter 20-18 in June. <strong>The</strong><br />

two teams then met in the major<br />

semi-final, which was a mud<br />

bath at Linwood Park, earlier<br />

this month. Linwood won 12-10<br />

great bevvies<br />

to gain automatic entry into the<br />

final. At the weekend, Hornby<br />

defeated the Northern Bulldogs<br />

34-20 to book their spot.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y’re a dangerous team.<br />

<strong>The</strong>ir style of play is pretty well<br />

known, they like to use the ball,”<br />

said Auimatagi.<br />

With both sides being well<br />

aware of what the other brings<br />

to the table and their recent<br />

record of close encounters, the<br />

Pat Smith Trophy is likely to be<br />

decided by a couple of big plays.<br />

“If you watch the<br />

last two finals, it’s<br />

been little one-on-one<br />

tackles, try-saving<br />

tackles, that have been<br />

the difference in the<br />

game of footy,” said<br />

Lawrie.<br />

<strong>The</strong> match will be<br />

one of four Canterbury<br />

Rugby League finals<br />

taking place at the<br />

same location on<br />

Sunday. It will be the first time<br />

a true finals day has been held<br />

since the 2011 earthquake.<br />

UC champs final<br />

expected to be<br />

a mud bath<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

A BATTLE OF the bog is what<br />

Christchurch Boys’ High School<br />

are expecting in preparation<br />

of their UC Championship<br />

final against Nelson College on<br />

Saturday.<br />

<strong>The</strong> final was due to be played<br />

at Trafalgar Park – Tasman’s<br />

home ground – but has been<br />

shifted to Nelson College,<br />

which was left in a muddy state<br />

following their semi-final victory<br />

over Christ’s College at the<br />

weekend.<br />

“After 10min, you couldn’t<br />

tell the teams apart apparently,<br />

so it’s not going to be much of<br />

a spectacle.<br />

Obviously the<br />

forwards are<br />

going to have to<br />

prepare really<br />

well because<br />

the game will<br />

be won and lost<br />

up front,” said<br />

Rhys<br />

Archibald<br />

CBHS coach<br />

Rhys Archibald.<br />

With rain<br />

expected today<br />

in Nelson, the likes of CBHS<br />

prop Ben Lopas are expecting a<br />

heavy workload.<br />

After recovering from surgery<br />

following a knee dislocation the<br />

year 13 student returned for his<br />

school’s win against Christ’s<br />

in May. However, a dislocation<br />

to his other knee in the match<br />

meant he missed a large chunk of<br />

the season before returning for<br />

a crucial win over St Andrew’s<br />

College at the start of the month.<br />

“It was very frustrating,<br />

obviously to come back after six<br />

months recovery and then do<br />

it again, but that’s rugby,” said<br />

Lopas.<br />

Since then the loosehead has<br />

been in scintillating form for<br />

CBHS, which have recovered<br />

from a bumpy start to the season<br />

to make the final.<br />

Lopas knows if<br />

they are to win a<br />

fourth straight UC<br />

RECOVERY: Prop Ben<br />

Lopas has been a standout<br />

performer for CBHS since<br />

returning from a dislocated<br />

knee.<br />

the forwards will need to be at<br />

their best against an impressive<br />

Nelson unit.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>y’ve got a big forward<br />

pack, that’s definitely their<br />

strength they’ve got some good<br />

players in there,” said Lopas.<br />

One of the biggest obstacles will<br />

be Nelson loose forward Anton<br />

Segner. <strong>The</strong> German exchange<br />

student made the New Zealand<br />

Schools team last year and has<br />

become renowned for his ability<br />

to create turnovers.<br />

“What he does is he picks the<br />

moments he’s going to attack the<br />

ball in the tackle and when he<br />

does it he does it really well<br />

. . . if he makes the decision to<br />

go, 80 per cent of the time he<br />

wins a penalty or he will steal the<br />

ball. He’s bloody good at it,” said<br />

Archibald.<br />

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

for the men in the finals at Nga Puna Wai on Saturday.<br />

Marist hope for upset<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

SOUTHERN UNITED and<br />

Carlton Redcliffs will go into<br />

the Canterbury premier league<br />

men’s and women’s hockey finals<br />

on Saturday as favourites. But<br />

Marist have hopes of spoiling<br />

their party and claiming a rare<br />

double.<br />

In the men’s final, Southern<br />

United will look to complete a<br />

clean sweep of titles after winning<br />

the President’s Shield, Porritt<br />

Cup and Challenge Shield.<br />

A win over Marist would also<br />

give them their first CPL title<br />

since the club was created with<br />

the amalgamation of Selwyn and<br />

Sydenham in 2014.<br />

Only lowly University scored<br />

less goals than Southern during<br />

the regular season. However,<br />

their success has been built on<br />

an impenetrable wall, which<br />

saw them concede just 12 goals<br />

LAURENCE PITHIE will<br />

return home with two junior<br />

world titles after bursting onto<br />

the international cycling scene.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Christchurch Boys’ High<br />

School student won rainbow<br />

jerseys in the madison and<br />

omnium at the UCI junior<br />

track world championships<br />

in Germany. It marked an<br />

outstanding campaign for<br />

Pithie, who only recently turned<br />

17 and will qualify for the<br />

junior worlds again next year.<br />

He started well in his quest<br />

to win the omnium, finishing<br />

fourth in the opening 7.5km<br />

scratch race, before taking on<br />

the tempo race, comprising of<br />

a sprint in each of the 26 laps<br />

after a four-lap start.<br />

in 14 matches. A key cog to the<br />

competition’s best defensive<br />

record is former Black Sticks<br />

defender Brad Shaw. He may<br />

have played 192 games for the<br />

national side, but Shaw said he<br />

still gets “as nervous for these<br />

games as internationals.”<br />

Over the weekend, Southern<br />

defeated Avon 3-1 to book their<br />

spot in the final, while Marist<br />

overcame Harewood 4-2.<br />

“We don’t have the superstars,<br />

but on the other side we don’t<br />

have any big gaps in our team,”<br />

said Shaw. “<strong>The</strong>y’re [Marist] in<br />

the final for a reason . . . they’ve<br />

got 12 or 13 really good players.<br />

If they get it together they’ll be<br />

hard to beat.”<br />

Marist will be hoping to complete<br />

a dream weekend, which<br />

will see their women’s team also<br />

go for the CPL title against an<br />

undefeated Carlton Redcliffs.<br />

“It is my weak link in the<br />

omnium and one I don’t usually<br />

do very well in,” said Pithie.<br />

But he broke clear to win<br />

10 sprints in a row to claim<br />

the honours and followed up<br />

with a win in the elimination<br />

race, where the last rider is<br />

eliminated every second lap.<br />

“I had a great start in the<br />

points race and collected points<br />

in each of the first five sprints,<br />

and from that point on it was a<br />

case of just covering wheels. I<br />

was absolutely knackered,” said<br />

Pithie.<br />

He claimed first equal in the<br />

points race to finish with 129<br />

overall.<br />

On the final day of the<br />

championships, Pithie paired<br />

<strong>The</strong> club’s back-to-back finals at<br />

Nga Puna Wai will make for a<br />

busy day for former Black Sticks<br />

defender Joe Bartholomew who<br />

will be on coaching duties during<br />

the women’s final before taking<br />

to the field in the men’s final.<br />

At the weekend, Marist<br />

defeated last year’s champions<br />

Harewood 2-1, while Carlton<br />

took care of HSOB/Burnside 3-0.<br />

Carlton are eyeing a clean<br />

sweep of titles, which has<br />

seen them go undefeated this<br />

year. <strong>The</strong>y dominated Marist in<br />

their first meeting of the year<br />

in May 3-0. However, Carlton’s<br />

5-4 win in their last encounter<br />

earlier this month was a far<br />

more even contest.<br />

30km race where no team was<br />

able to put a lap on the field. <strong>The</strong><br />

New Zealand pair won the final<br />

three sprints to seal the win.<br />

with one and a half laps to go<br />

and just put his head down and<br />

went for it,” said coach Myron<br />

Coastal set sights<br />

on women’s<br />

football double<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

RECENTLY crowned women’s<br />

premier league champions<br />

Coastal Spirit can book a spot<br />

in the final of the Kate Sheppard<br />

Cup when they face Wellington<br />

United on Saturday.<br />

Coastal are the only<br />

Canterbury club to win<br />

the national knockout cup<br />

since it was first played<br />

for in 1994. In 2013, they<br />

defeated Auckland’s<br />

Glenfield Rovers 1-0 at<br />

English Park.<br />

Captain Chloe Jones is<br />

one of only a few players<br />

remaining from the side<br />

which won in 2013. She<br />

says thinking back to<br />

the triumph still “brings<br />

goosebumps.” She is confident<br />

this squad have a good shot at<br />

replicating the accomplishment.<br />

“It’s got a special place in our<br />

heart. I think it’s exciting for<br />

everybody, you get to come up<br />

against different people that<br />

you’ve never played before and<br />

it’s an opportunity for people to<br />

get seen at a higher level,” said<br />

Jones.<br />

Last month Coastal booked<br />

their spot in the semi-finals<br />

with a win on penalties over<br />

defending champions Dunedin<br />

Technical. Prior to that they<br />

started their campaign by<br />

defeating Universities 3-0 in<br />

the first round, Nelson Suburbs<br />

10-0 in the second and Waimak<br />

United 4-2 in round three.<br />

Now the only remaining South<br />

Island team in the competition,<br />

they will look to punch above<br />

their weight. Only Coastal and<br />

Dunedin have ever managed to<br />

bring the cup south.<br />

“We are closing that gap a little<br />

bit between the north and south,<br />

but it’s still a massive challenge<br />

for us going up to the North<br />

Island. Some of those Auckland<br />

teams are really strong with<br />

a big pool of players<br />

to choose from,” said<br />

Jones.<br />

“In terms of backing<br />

ourselves, we back<br />

ourselves in every<br />

game we go into and<br />

this weekend is no<br />

different.”<br />

Coastal admit they<br />

didn’t know too much<br />

about Saturday’s<br />

opposition when the<br />

draw was made.<br />

However, Coastal football<br />

development manager Gary<br />

Bennett says they have found<br />

a means of scouting the<br />

Wellington-based side.<br />

“We’ve got a lifelong fan who’s<br />

moved to Wellington and he’s<br />

gone to watch them three or<br />

four times and made some notes<br />

for us, so we’ve been looking<br />

through them . . . he’s been<br />

spotted now. It doesn’t help that<br />

he wears his Coastal Spirit hat<br />

everywhere, including to bed I<br />

think,” said Bennett.<br />

Earlier this month, Coastal<br />

captured their third straight<br />

premier league title on the final<br />

day of the season by holding<br />

rivals Cashmere Technical to a<br />

2-2 draw at English Park.<br />

Mazda CX-5 Takami<br />

gets turbo engine<br />

MAZDA IS well pleased<br />

with the success of its CX-5<br />

sport utility vehicle, the<br />

mid-size family wagon sells<br />

consistently in a very busy<br />

market segment.<br />

Last year it underwent<br />

a fairly major facelift,<br />

and that has helped<br />

keep the model fresh. As<br />

part of Mazda’s ongoing<br />

development process,<br />

another model has just<br />

been added to the CX-5<br />

line-up. Takami grade<br />

models are springing up<br />

throughout the passenger<br />

car range, and those<br />

vehicles have a higher trim<br />

specification including<br />

nappa leather.<br />

Takami sits over and<br />

above the Limited grade<br />

model, effectively you are<br />

getting a lot of ingredients<br />

which add character and<br />

enhance the look and feel<br />

of the CX-5.<br />

However, there is one<br />

other important feature<br />

with the range-topping<br />

CX-5. Takami grade<br />

variants get a turbocharged<br />

2.5-litre engine. Regular<br />

CX-5 models have the same<br />

basic engine construction,<br />

but they are sans turbo.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Takami is a standalone<br />

model using this engine,<br />

although it must be<br />

considered it is much the<br />

same unit that is fitted to<br />

the CX-9 which I evaluated<br />

in these columns in June.<br />

In the CX-5, the turbo<br />

unit works that much better,<br />

the vehicle is lighter than the<br />

CX-9 and, as a consequence,<br />

delivers better performance<br />

and economy.<br />

In terms of figures,<br />

Mazda rates the engine at<br />

170kW (5000rpm) with<br />

420Nm of torque also<br />

available low in the rev<br />

band at 2000rpm. <strong>The</strong>se<br />

are the figures which make<br />

this engine so desirable,<br />

it works tirelessly at the<br />

bottom end, it has been<br />

specifically developed so<br />

that fuel use is kept to a<br />

minimum, yet it will offer<br />

all of the performance<br />

ingredients that you would<br />

expect from a big four-pot<br />

turbocharged engine.<br />

<strong>The</strong> CX-5 Takami will<br />

reach 100km/h from a<br />

standstill in 8.8sec and<br />

will scamper through<br />

a highway overtake in<br />

4.7sec (80-120km/h).<br />

More importantly, it is<br />

gentle on fuel considering<br />

there is over 1700kg to<br />

shift. Mazda rate it with<br />

an 8.2-litre per 100km<br />

(35mpg) combined cycle<br />

fuel usage average. During<br />

my time in the test car the<br />

fuel usage readout was<br />

constantly listing around<br />

9.2l/100km (31mpg), with<br />

a 7l/100km (40mpg) figure<br />

MAZDA CX-5 TAKAMI: High grade trim and<br />

turbocharged engine.<br />

sitting instantaneously<br />

at 100km/h, the engine<br />

working right in the area of<br />

maximum torque.<br />

Don’t be thinking that<br />

because the engine works<br />

slowly and effectively at low<br />

speed that it won’t utilise the<br />

top end, it will sing to the<br />

redline without too much<br />

provocation and it enjoys<br />

that, but there is little need<br />

to have it in that area.<br />

• Price – Mazda CX-5<br />

Takami, $61,495<br />

• Dimensions –<br />

Length, 4550mm;<br />

width, 1840mm;<br />

height, 1680mm<br />

• Configuration<br />

– Four-cylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

2488cc, 170kW,<br />

420Nm, six-speed<br />

automatic.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 8.8sec<br />

• Fuel usage –<br />

8.2l/100km<br />

A lot of that is down to<br />

the engine management<br />

protocols and how they<br />

work with the transmission.<br />

<strong>The</strong> six-speed automatic<br />

gearbox is traditional<br />

Mazda fare, and I’ve written<br />

many times that simplicity<br />

is a good design and there<br />

are no surprises within the<br />

driveline, everything works<br />

traditionally and the result<br />

is efficiency.<br />

That’s something Mazda<br />

has been working on as<br />

a priority over the last<br />

few years, their SkyActive<br />

engines are fuel misers, and<br />

even in turbo form you get<br />

the benefit of significant<br />

power knowing that fuel<br />

isn’t being wasted.<br />

In the Takami’s case, the<br />

CX-5 carries four-wheeldrive<br />

mechanicals. With<br />

193mm ground clearance<br />

it has notable off-the-seal<br />

capability, and that is<br />

much on par with SUVs<br />

of this type, the CX-5 is<br />

particularly suited to that<br />

mid-winter trip to the<br />

alpine ski fields.<br />

I didn’t venture into the<br />

loose, my time with the<br />

test car was plagued by<br />

filthy weather and I wasn’t<br />

prepared to get stuck<br />

in low-grip situations.<br />

However, I did have a long<br />

highway drive taking in<br />

the twisty sections of State<br />

the Rakaia Gorge. Even<br />

in soaking conditions the<br />

CX-5 felt tightly connected<br />

to the road.<br />

What must be enjoyed<br />

is the ride comfort and<br />

control throughout the<br />

entire vehicle, it travels ever<br />

so smoothly and is quiet in<br />

motion. I guess when you<br />

are buying a vehicle that sits<br />

on the outer periphery of the<br />

luxury car market you’d want<br />

that to be case, and the CX-5<br />

Takami doesn’t disappoint.<br />

It also gets all of the<br />

upmarket kit for comfort<br />

and convenience, along<br />

with the latest Mazda<br />

suite of safety technology.<br />

I-Activesense has had a<br />

recent upgrade, and that<br />

makes the CX-5 just that<br />

little more appealing.<br />

While Mazda has<br />

done well with CX-5, the<br />

company knows there is lot<br />

of competition out there<br />

and it’s getting tougher day<br />

by day. I drove the Takami<br />

straight after a few days<br />

with Skoda’s Kodiaq RS,<br />

its turbocharged diesel<br />

engine is a cracker, and<br />

being priced close to the<br />

CX-5 Takami it’s a natural<br />

competitor and one which<br />

will keep the latter honest.<br />

For me, diesel power<br />

would be preferable,<br />

however, there’s also the<br />

Mazda CX-8 to consider, its<br />

Mazda’s diesel option in the<br />

mid-to-large SUV market.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are so many<br />

choices, I guess I’m lucky<br />

in a way that finances mean<br />

I’ll probably never have to<br />

face those decisions.<br />

REA - How property buyers<br />

can spot a healthy home<br />

Purchasing a house that’s warm and dry is a<br />

priority for many property hunters, but how<br />

can buyers identify a ‘healthy’ home?<br />

Real Estate Authority (REA) chief executive<br />

Kevin Lampen-Smith says there are a<br />

handful of key traits to watch out for.<br />

“A house that’s hard to heat can make you<br />

sick and miserable. In many cases, the key is<br />

good insulation,” Lampen-Smith says.<br />

<strong>The</strong> World Health Organisation recommends<br />

a minimum of 18 degrees in<br />

our homes. Insulation is often the most<br />

practical and cost-effective way to make<br />

a house more energy<br />

efficient. An insulated<br />

home is warmer in<br />

winter and cooler in<br />

summer, which can<br />

provide health benefits<br />

like reducing mould<br />

and damp.<br />

“Ask the agent or<br />

seller if the property is<br />

insulated, the type of<br />

insulation used and when it was installed.<br />

Ask your building inspector to check the<br />

state of the insulation,” Lampen-Smith<br />

suggests.<br />

Lampen-Smith explains insulation should<br />

be replaced or topped up if it’s less than<br />

12cm thick, doesn’t cover the whole ceiling,<br />

has become wet or damp, or been damaged<br />

by rodents or birds.<br />

“If a property you’re looking at isn’t insulated,<br />

it’s a good idea to budget for the cost<br />

of doing the work, as your health (and your<br />

wallet) will thank you in the long term.”<br />

<strong>The</strong>re’s support available for some buyers,<br />

such as a Warmer Kiwi Homes insulation<br />

grant. Some local councils also allow property<br />

owner to add the cost of insulation to<br />

their rates and pay this back over time.<br />

When working to identify a healthy<br />

home, Lampen-Smith says it’s important to<br />

watch out for dampness. Signs of dampness<br />

include musty smells, damp or mouldy<br />

wardrobe contents, mould forming behind<br />

paintings or furniture, or mould or watermarks<br />

on ceilings or walls.<br />

“Condensation on windows, especially in<br />

bedrooms, isn’t necessarily a sign of excessive<br />

dampness if it only happens occasionally<br />

during winter,” Lampen-Smith explains.<br />

Ideally, the house will have extractor fans<br />

in the bathroom, kitchen<br />

and laundry that are<br />

vented outside. Fans<br />

should not be vented<br />

into the roof space.<br />

Good curtains can<br />

also help a house retain<br />

warmth.<br />

“It’s important to<br />

note that curtains aren’t<br />

necessarily included in<br />

the sale of the house, so ask about this and<br />

if the answer is yes, ensure they’re included<br />

in the list of chattels in the sale and purchase<br />

agreement,” Lampen-Smith says.<br />

According to EECA, good curtains<br />

should be floor-length and fit tightly against<br />

the wall or window frame. Sill-length<br />

curtains are ineffective. Curtains should be<br />

wider than the window frame and preferably<br />

be double layered with a thick lining.<br />

If the property has ineffective curtains, or<br />

does not come with curtains, buyers should<br />

factor this cost into their budget.<br />

A snapshot of what’s cooking<br />

at the Cashmere Club<br />

CHEF ANAS<br />

THIS THURSDAY<br />

Saturday<br />

Sunday<br />

Sunday 18 Aug<br />

THERE’S a new chef at the Riverview<br />

Restaurant in the Cashmere Club and<br />

with him comes an exciting new menu<br />

that incorporates traditional Kiwi<br />

classics with exciting new dishes.<br />

Hailing from Jordan in the Middle<br />

East, Chef Anas (pronounced Are-niss)<br />

specialises in fusion style cuisine. Some<br />

of the new menu options embrace his<br />

delicious blend of Middle Eastern<br />

flavours with the best of seasonal Kiwi<br />

produce.<br />

On the menu remain traditional Kiwi<br />

favourites such as Roast of the Day,<br />

Steaks cooked to your liking, the Club<br />

Burger, Fish & Chips, Curry of the Day<br />

along with Chef ’s new dishes such as<br />

Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Crispy<br />

Calamari Rings, Braised Beef Brisket or<br />

Cheesy Mushroom Quesadillas, Sticky<br />

BBQ Pork Ribs, and Creamy Basil Pesto<br />

Mussels.<br />

ere’s also ‘Platters’ that serve four.<br />

Piggy Platter (Braised Pork) and<br />

Chicken Platter (Whole Roast Chicken)<br />

that come with Slaw, Tortillas, Dips, and<br />

fried Potatoes.<br />

At the glance it’s obvious that menu<br />

prices are extremely reasonable. It’s also<br />

good to see that consideration has been<br />

given to special diets with a healthier<br />

slant on salads as well as a selection of<br />

gluten free, vegetarian and vegan<br />

options.<br />

As the menu evolves, foodies can<br />

expect to see a new decadent dessert<br />

menu introduced as well as a fresh<br />

kiddies menu.<br />

e Riverview Restaurant is open<br />

Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and<br />

dinner. Bookings recommended on 03<br />
