Sexual assault victim

targeted with ‘hate’

• By Sophie Cornish

A WOMAN who was sexually

assaulted as a child has been

abused for posting her attacker’s

details online.

The woman, now 42, received

a backlash on a number of

Christchurch community

Facebook pages.

“I was so surprised at the

response I got. I got quite a lot

of hate messages, telling me I

was ruining someone’s life,” the

woman, who wished to

be known as Marie, told

The Star.

Marie wanted to warn others

about his offending and posted

on several groups.

The post stated his name,

address, details of the crime

and said he was a convicted

paedophile. •Turn to page 4

Concern

over

terror

accused’s

well-being

in prison

THE MARCH 15 mosque

shooting accused has put himself

on an extreme minimal eating

regime in jail and is also not

washing.

The Star has learned there is

concern about his well-being, but

prison authorities cannot force

him to eat more.

The Department of Corrections

and his Auckland-based lawyer

Shane Tait would not answer

questions from The Star yesterday,

citing privacy issues and the fact

the accused is before the courts

for the March 15 terror attacks.

Said a Department of Corrections

spokesperson: “As you will

appreciate, this prisoner is currently

before the court, and to avoid

jeopardising these proceedings or

prejudicing their outcome, we are

limited in our ability to provide

further specific information.

“This prisoner continues to

be managed in accordance with

the provisions set out in the

Corrections Act 2004 and our

international obligations for the

treatment of prisoners.”

The 28-year-old Australian,

who has pleaded not guilty to 51

charges of murder and 40 charges

of attempted murder, as well as a

charge of engaging in a terrorist

act, is being held on remand in a

high-security wing of Auckland

Prison at Paremoremo.

Thursday October 10 2019 The Star

• By Devon Bolger

THREE YEARS ago Christina

Buckland’s daughter Arabelle

was rushed to hospital with

suspected meningitis.

The fear and anxiety she experienced

led to her starting the

charity One Mother to Another.

The charity provides gift bags

to mothers and carers in the

Children’s Acute Assessment or

Neonatal Intensive Care units at

Christchurch Hospital.

Mrs Buckland has been

recognised for her work with a

Westfield Local Heroes award

that comes with a $10,000 grant.

Mrs Buckland said she started

the charity with her friend Joy

Reid in the hopes of putting a

smile on the face of a mother or

carer in the same position she

was.

“It came about because Joy

and I had both been in hospital

with sick kids and we knew how

lonely and isolating that can feel

and we wanted to find a way to

support other mums who will go

through that journey too,” she

said.

Mrs Buckland took 18-monthold

Arabelle to the GP when she

developed what seemed like a

stubborn nappy rash.

Baxendale’s first day as new council chief executive

• By Louis Day

THE CITY council’s new chief

executive Dawn Baxendale starts

today.

She arrived in New Zealand

late last month from Birmingham

with her husband and one of her

sons.

A city council spokeswoman said

Helping mothers with sick

kids after own struggle

‘My mummy brain just

heard the word meningitis

and went into an absolute

frenzy in my head.’

– Christina Buckland

Mrs Baxendale (right) will be inducted

this week before welcoming

the newly-elected council following

Saturday’s elections.

Mrs Baxendale was named as the

new chief executive in July but was

unable to start straight away due to

not having a visa.

The former Birmingham City

Council chief executive will earn

$495,000, an $80,000 increase from

her predecessor Karleen Edwards’

salary.

She will also receive an

additional $30,000 towards

relocation costs from the United

Kingdom.

Her appointment attracted

criticism from inside and outside

the council.

When the doctor had a look,

he told her that the rash looked

like it could be meningitis and

they needed to go to the hospital

immediately.

“My mummy brain just heard

the word meningitis and went

into an absolute frenzy in my

head.”

At the hospital, Arabelle was

calm but Mrs Buckland was

struggling to cope.

“When we were there she was

actually feeling fine, it was me

that was a mess. I was crying

and I remember thinking I need

some support and that’s where

the original idea came from.

“I didn’t have any family here.

I had friends I could call to look

after my toddler but not having

that family here, like a lot of people

nowadays don’t, it does just

make it a lot harder,” she said.

Mrs Buckland said she is honoured

to receive the award.

“I feel like I’m just an ordinary

mother who is doing something

in brief

Fears for missing

woman

Police continue to have serious

concerns for a missing woman.

Christine Barton, 63, was still

missing as of late yesterday.

She was last seen on October

3, wearing a green turtleneck

sweater and leggings. She has

a number of health issues and

there are serious concerns for her

welfare. Previously when she has

gone missing, she was located in

the Cashmere/Barrington areas.

Name of man who

died in fire released

Police have released the name

of a man who died in a house

fire on Saturday. Robert James

White, 69, was the only occupant

of the Breens Rd, Bishopdale,

house when fire broke out about

10.40pm. The cause of the fire

is still under investigation, but

police say it is not believed to be

suspicious.

Pedestrian hurt after

being hit by car

A pedestrian was taken to

hospital in moderate condition

after a crash in North New

Brighton on Sunday. A St John

spokeswoman said it was called

to the crash, between a car and

a pedestrian, about 3.50pm on

Sunday at the intersection of

Bower Ave and Travis Rd.

High alcohol readings

for drink drivers

Two more people have been

caught driving about five times

over the legal drink driving

limit. It comes after a North New

Brighton woman has recorded

one of the highest ever drink

driving readings in New Zealand

last month at 1669mcg/L. The

reading was almost six times the

legal driving limit of 250mcg/L

for adults. A 61-year-old New

Brighton man appeared in the

district court this week after

recording 1246mcg/L on August

22. A 23-year-old Burnside

crane operator also appeared

in the district court this week

after recording 1243mcg/L on

September 8.

Victim’s online bid for justice

•From page 1

There was a lot of hate and

then the post was deleted by

admin,” she said.

“In amongst the hate, however,

I did also get 17 messages from

people who were concerned and

missed the post before it was

deleted. They wanted to know

how to be able to protect their

kids and felt that information

should be publicly allowed.”

Last month, Marie’s abuser,

Donald Louden Ritchie, was

sentenced to

seven months

home detention.

He was not

required to

register as a sex

offender after

he was deemed

‘low-risk.’

Jess McVicar

Said Marie:

“People would

rather not know.

People are just living in wilful

ignorance, they don’t want to

accept their children might not

be safe. If people aren’t prepared

to accept it, how are we going to

stop this happening?”

She had suffered years of

depression and anxiety, which

she now understands are

symptoms of her post-traumatic

stress disorder.

She decided to make a formal

complaint against the man to

prove to her two children it is

okay to speak up.

“I wanted to show them I am a

good model and that it’s okay to

speak out.”

When she was 10-years-old,

the man, a family friend who

her parents had met at church,

temporarily moved into her

family home.

“He was often left to take care

of us kids. He groomed us, then

he took liberties, this is how they

do it.”

The abuse then continued for

two more years.

“He was so confident, but that

was all part of the grooming.

It started with back rubs and

shoulder rubs, which was really

normal in my close family. But

then one time it went too far. I

felt so overwhelmed, so scared it

was my fault.”

“I was complicit. I didn’t share

what was happening out of fear,

I couldn’t talk about it. I knew

what was happening was wrong.

Before you know it, it’s gone too

far. I felt so embarrassed.”

Sensible Sentencing Trust

spokeswoman Jess McVicar said

recent sentencing for sexual

offending has been “appalling.”

“Sex offending used to be

considered as a serious offence.

We now have a status-quo in

our justice system that this is no

longer the case,” Miss McVicar

said.

“Between June 2017 to June

2018, there were 408 home

detention sentences given for

sexual offending.”

However, Miss McVicar said

while she agrees with Marie

trying to warn the community

and naming him, posting his

address online may be risky.

“Unfortunately the risk she

takes with this is the offender can

officially make a complaint to the

Privacy Commissioner against

her. We wouldn’t agree about

posting the address, as we would

never want it to go to the extreme

of someone taking matters into

their own hands or doing a witch

hunt.”

Netsafe chief executive Martin

Cocker said online digital content

which causes harm can result in

prosecutions under the Harmful

Digital Communications Act

2015.

“On the surface, this could

be treated as harmful digital

communication under the Act.

However, when put to the test, it

is unlikely it would result in an

offence given the nature of the

circumstances,” he said.

The law applies online, as it

would with anywhere else. If

you apply unnecessary risk to an

individual, you could absorb that

liability, like in any other sphere.

“We would encourage people

to allow legal institutions to do

their job and not to take action in

defiance of that,” Mr Cocker said.

•Marie is not the victim’s real

name.

In a surprise move last

week, Mr Tait withdrew an

application to move the trial out

He had earlier applied to have

the trial, set down for June next

year, taken out of the city.

Moving the trial out of

a major logistical challenge

for the courts system, with the

DAIRY FARM worker Tony

Waldron was killed with a

blunt instrument, it can be

revealed.

Police initially thought the

29-year-old, who was found

dead in his home near Rakaia

on September 18, had been shot

in the head.

A 26-year-old Christchurch

kitchen hand has been charged

with Mr Waldron’s murder. He

has been remanded in custody

and will reappear at the High

Court on October 21.

The Star understands police

are also investigating if other

people were involved in Mr

Waldron’s death.

Head of the inquiry Detective

Senior Sergeant Richard

Quested would not comment

on the murder weapon or

whether other people were a

focus of their inquiries.

“I won’t be releasing any of

those details because the matter

is before the courts,” he said.

Police divers have searched

an irrigation pond on a farm

near Rakaia and the Selwyn

River for the murder weapon.

A house in Hoani St, Papanui,

was also searched.

Mr Waldron was living

alone at the time of his death.

His wife, Alana, and their two

daughters had recently moved

out of the three-bedroom farm

house.

His body was found by a coworker

who went looking for

him when he did not show up

for work.

Mr Waldron lived and

worked on a dairy farm owned

by Dairy Holdings Ltd.

David Benbow, 51, is in

being charged with the murder

of Mr McGrath, whose body has

He has pleaded not guilty to

Benbow was a prison officer

from his duties at Christchurch

Prison because of the police

investigation, and later resigned.

EXPANSION: Today’s opening of Briscoes Homewares at Bush Inn leads the way for even

more exciting improvements at the shopping centre.

IMPROVEMENTS: The three year expansion of Bush Inn

Shopping Centre is nearing completion.

riscoes opens at Bush Inn

SUBSTANTIAL developments

happening at Bush Inn Shopping

Centre gather pace this week

with the opening of Briscoes

Homewares today.

“Three years’ work has resulted

in a stunning new building,” said

Andy Bell property and development

manager for owner Ganson

Group Ltd.

“We are delighted to welcome

Briscoes to Bush Inn and it demonstrates

what we are doing here,

investing and creating a whole

new shopping environment at the

centre is working”

In addition to Briscoes, The

Provedore - a new grocery and provisions

complex will open at Bush

Inn around December this year.

This comprises a selection of

speciality food retailers in all

areas of grocery and provisions

including a metro style supermarket,

fine wines and spirits outlet,

European butcher and deli, seafood

outlet, bulk food outlet with

around 18 retailers in total.

“Make no mistake this is not

boutique or high-end,” said Mr

Bell.

“We have taken the initiative in

replacing our supermarket with a

hard working, highly competitive

grocery shopping offering – you

will be able to get everything that

the supermarket provides and a

whole lot more – better quality

and better priced, every day of the

week”

The Provedore is presented in

an open plan style with plenty of

natural light, cobbled walkways

between outlets, and is intended

to provide a unique alternative to

supermarket shopping.

The Provedore is well leased

but now that retailers can see it,

they are really getting what we are

trying to achieve,” says assistant

manager Rees Hunt.

“We still have some opportunities

and anyone interested should

contact me fairly quickly.”

MEGAN HORE’S battle with

cancer has sadly come to an end.

The 19-year-old died on

Monday surrounded by family.

Megan will be farewelled at

what the family has called a

“FUN”eral at the start of next

week, where she has requested

people dress “brightly and

cheerfully.”

The daughter of well-known

blind organist Richard Hore was

declared cancer-free in October

after battling bone cancer for

more than a year.

However, in August the

cancer returned. She had to

have more than half of her left

lung removed due to cancerous

nodules being found on it.

She fell ill after that, and was

diagnosed with leukaemia and

told it was terminal.

Her mother Marilyn Hore

said the family’s lives have been

“turned upside down.”

“It really is shocking, but on

the other hand I’m really pleased

that she is no longer in pain and

no longer fighting, no longer has

drips hanging out of her arms

and is not struggling to eat and

do all the basic things in life,” she

said.

Mrs Hore said her daughter’s

death had left a “huge hole” in

the family.

“Meg was such a livewire and

she made the house a home and

she had a bit of sass in her and

she made us laugh.

“I opened a cupboard yesterday

and there was this drinking cup

that she thought was great and

to be honest, I hated it, but she

is just everywhere we look, there

is something that reminds us of

Meg everywhere.”

Gang members

in alleged

home invasion

over cellphone

• By Sophie Cornish

THE SALE OF a second-hand

cellphone resulted in a home

invasion involving a gun and

baseball bat.

Police allege two patched

Bandidos gang members

bashed down the door of a house

on Curletts Rd, Sockburn, on

Sunday night and assaulted a

man.

Two brothers, Rawiri Takuira

Kiri, 26, of Waltham, and Lee

Teomaori Kiri, 30, of Aranui,

have been charged over the

alleged incident, which The Star

understands was a dispute over a

cellphone which was sold but did

not work properly.

They appeared in the district

court on Monday, facing joint

charges of possessing a firearm

and armed robbery with a

baseball bat.

Police allege they stole $15

from the male victim, who was

assaulted during the incident.

More charges are likely.

They were remanded in custody

until December, when they are

next due to appear in court.

The Star understands the male

victim’s parents and two children

were at home at the time of the

attack.

Do you have doubts your

earthquake repairs have

been done properly?

Park complains about

council Facebook link

to Dalziel’s website

• By Louis Day

THE CITY council has had to

remove a link to Mayor Lianne

Dalziel’s campaign website

from one of its Facebook pages

following a complaint from

mayoralty rival Darryll Park.

Mr Park engaged legal firm

Cavell Leitch to express his

concerns around the city councilrun

Facebook page ‘Lianne

Dalziel Christchurch Mayor’

having a link to Ms Dalziel’s

campaign website.

The inclusion of campaign

material on a Christchurch City

Council social media account

may give the impression that

the council is promoting Ms

Dalziel ahead of all other mayoral

candidates,” Cavell Leitch said in

a letter to city council electoral

officer Jo Daly.

In response to the letter, Ms

Daly said the existence of the link

to Ms Dalziel’s campaign website

had gone unnoticed by the city

council and had since been

removed.

She also agreed the links

from the city council-run

Facebook page to Ms Dalziel’s

campaign website could be seen

as inconsistent with the protocol

that refrains city council social

Darryll Park Lianne

Dalziel

media accounts from promoting

candidates.

Mr Park would not talk to The

Star yesterday about the matter.

But his campaign manager

David Lynch said: “We

acknowledge that the council

has accepted that there were

significant infringements and

we appreciate that the mayor has

made some attempt to address

some of those infringements.

However, we believe some of

them have not been resolved and

we remain in discussion with the

council around this.”

Mr Lynch would not say what

the unresolved infringements

were.

Ms Dalziel’s campaign

manager Aaron Campbell said

the infringement was “minor.”

“If it was serious I think she [Jo

Daly] would be taking further

action,” he said.

Halfway house director silent

on neighbour’s claims

• By Sophie Cornish

THE DIRECTOR of a halfway

house for serious criminals is

refusing to answer questions

about a neighbour’s claim the

foundation has devalued her

property.

A director of the Salisbury

Street Foundation on St Albans

St, Merivale, has not responded

to questions from The Star about

the matter.

Last month, The Star reported

Mansfield Ave resident Ali Chapman

claimed she would lose close

to $200,000 of her property’s

value because she lives next door

to the foundation.

Recently, the foundation has

expanded and bought more

properties nearby.

In August, it increased the

number of people it is able to

house from 15 to 21.

The foundation purchased

several properties next to Mrs

Chapman’s home, and is now

operating out of them.

Mrs Chapman said the foundation

verbally told her when

she wanted to sell, it would be

interested in buying her home.

Eighteen months ago, the

home was valued at $795,000.

However, now she says the

foundation won’t offer any more

than $600,000.

“I know the market value has

by the Salisbury Street Foundation. To the left is her

home which she says has been devalued due to the

criminals.

gone down since then, but not by

$200,000.”

Mrs Chapman believes other

interested buyers aren’t willing

to pay market value for her home

because of its close location to

the foundation.

The Star reported the city

council was investigating a complaint

about the foundation and

whether it was operating lawfully,

under the correct consents.

Said head of regulatory

compliance Tracey Weston:

“Upon receiving the complaint,

our compliance team

investigated the concerns

raised and can confirm that

all activities on this site are

permitted.”

THIEVES HAVE been making

profits of up to $3000 by stealing

clippings from unique plants on

display at the Botanic Gardens.

Dozens of plants now need

additional security measures

while on display in the public

conservatories, Cuningham

House, Gilpin House and The

Fernery.

City council

staff said other

plants have

been moved

out of reach, or

behind glass, as

the problem has

increased this

year.

The thefts were

first noticed in

late 2017, and

last year some entire plants were

stolen.

However, city council director

Botanic Gardens and garden

parks Wolfgang Bopp said this

year has been “the worst in total

of number of cuttings and plants

being stolen.”

Theft is likely to have been

going on for a long time but

usually at an undetectable level

where the odd cutting gets taken

from plants both indoors and

out.”

“Indoor plants have just

recently become the trendy plant

to collect, so it’s been only the last

few years where it’s becoming a

real issue,” Mr Bopp said.

Some of the rare plants,

including peperomia polybotrya,

are not available commercially in

New Zealand, so Mr Bopp said

their value is hard to estimate.

“Plants can range from $25

to $80 or more for certain plant

varieties. Cuttings of rare plants

can go as high as $150 for a leaf.

There has been a listing on Trade

Me for close to $3000 for small

plants,” he said.

More than 60 plants have been

affected so far. The city council

Cuningham House contains

sub-tropical plant collections,

including dieffenbachia,

peperomia, hoya, anthurium and

dracaena.

Gilpin House contains tropical

collections of orchids, tillandsias,

bromeliads and carnivorous

plants.

The Fernery contains a

collection of New Zealand ferns,

including the iconic silver fern,

cyathea dealbata.

The plants are sourced from

the New Zealand nursery trade,

private collections and societies,

while others are imported from

overseas nurseries as live plants

or seeds.

Mr Bopp said the police have

not yet been informed about the

thefts.

“Nothing can ever be 100 per

cent proven, as you need physical

or visual proof of the theft. If

cuttings have been noted as

stolen and then appear on a site

for sale, there is a likelihood of

them having been obtained and

sold without permission,” he said.

“Plants that were imported

by the Botanic Gardens and not

known to be grown by others in

the country makes this likely.”

Botanic Gardens staff are now

keeping a close eye on suspicious

sellers on various online sites and

groups.

Stepfather

tried to

contact student

THE BODY of 19-year-old

Mason Pendrous was only found

in September, when his friend

climbed onto the roof at the halls

of residence where the teenager

lived and looked into his missing

friend’s room.

Mr Pendrous was in his first

year studying e-commerce and

was living at Sonoda – a student

hall of residence run by Campus

Living Villages.

He was found dead in his room

on September 23, after his family

had not heard from him for

weeks.

His family say they were still

being pursued for bills by CLV,

while Mr Pendrous was unaccounted

for at Sonoda.

His stepfather Anthony Holland

told RNZ’s Checkpoint he

tried to contact his son many

times by text, email and phone,

but he put the lack of response

down to typical teenage behaviour,

until his son’s mobile was

disconnected.

“I texted a friend of his who

was in Auckland, who contacted

a friend that was in the same

hall. This young man decided

something wasn’t quite right,” Mr

Holland said.

Mr Holland said he last spoke

to his son on Friday, 19 July, at

about 11pm, and Mr Pendrous

was in good spirits.

A CAT in labour with four

kittens suffocated to death inside

a chilly bin after being dumped

outside the SPCA’s gates.

The cat has joined a list of 13

others that have been abandoned

in the region in just over a

month, a number much higher

than usual.

It was left outside SPCA

Christchurch Centre in Hornby

just after 11pm on Friday. The

closed chilly bin with the cat

was found by staff the following

morning.

Said SPCA spokeswoman Jessie

Gilchrist: “Our vets believe the

cat suffocated to death. She was

full-term pregnant with four

kittens and appears to have been

actively in labour at the time of

death.”

Two other cats were found dead

at Kennedys Bush, Halswell, on

September 26, in an apparent

drowning.

Three cats were found in the

box, two of which were dead,

secured with duct tape and

wrapped in soaking wet towels.

“We suspect that the two deceased

cats were drowned – based

on the fact that the surviving cat

was wet,” said Mrs Gilchrist.

The surviving cat was found

in healthy condition, other than

being scared and timid.

“She’s quite distinctive with her

one blue eye, so someone might

recognise her.”

Also on September 26, two grey

long-haired male cats were found

on the edge of the Kaiapoi River,

tied in a black plastic bag, which

was partly sitting in the water.

Both cats, now named Anzac

and Arnie, required medical

treatment.

On August 25, four cats were

found dumped in a box outside

a Christchurch cattery. All four

have since been adopted.

SPCA chief inspector Jamie

Hancock said cats being left outside

its gate or at vet clinics was

not unusual but it is not usually

groups of three or four cats.

People need to call them if

they have concerns rather than

abandoning an animal, which is

illegal, she said.

“September and October is

Three Canty townships

to get e-scooter trial

• By Devon Bolger

THREE Canterbury townships

will be getting a six-month

e-scooter trial.

The Selwyn District Council

on Wednesday approved the trial

for both Lime scooters and for a

local supplier called Lava.

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton,

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall,

councillors Debra Hasson, Grant

Miller, Craig Watson, John

Morten and Murray Lemon

voted in favour of the trial while

Crs Nicole Reid, Bob Mugford

and Mark Alexander voted

against it.

Earlier this year, the district

council voted to give Lime a trial

once safety concerns around

speed, safety, geo-fencing, costs,

and bylaw implications were

addressed.

In the report presented at

the meeting, district council

regulatory manager Billy

Charlton said all concerns had

been addressed.

However, the three district

councillors who voted against

the proposal felt safety was still

an issue.

Lincoln based e-scooter

company, Lava, is owned by

Angela and Phillip Eberhard.

They applied to the district

council to operate 50 e-scooters

seven days a week in Rolleston,

WHEELS ROLLING: Mark

Lincoln and Prebbleton.

The plan would see the

scooters move between the

townships using cycleways.

Lime amended its original

application to include Prebbleton

and Lincoln as well as Rolleston.

The trial will commence

following the adoption of the

revised traffic and parking bylaw

which includes the provision of

e-scooters.

THE POPULAR Graham

Condon Recreation and Sport

Centre will get a revamp this

summer.

It will be the most significant

maintenance and refurbishment

work to be carried out on the

facility since it opened eight

years ago and will require it to

be closed temporarily.

The work will start in January

2020 and includes improvements

to the efficiency of the facility,

such as changing to LED lighting.

Other work includes painting,

replacement of showers and toilets,

floor covering replacements

and poolside works such as tiling

repairs.

The main hall and gym will

be completed first and re-open

in early February, while the remainder

of the centre – including

pools – will re-open in early

April 2020.

The Graham Condon Recreation

& Sport Centre was named

in honour of the late Graham

Condon, a former city councillor

and paralympic champion.

City council head of recreation

sports and events Nigel Cox

said the facility has had a lot of

use since opening, especially

as other recreation and sports

centres were closed or damaged

after the earthquakes.

A FAMILY history fun day,

spring fairs, and the chance to

explore heritage hot spots in

the central city are just some of

the highlights of this year’s Beca

Christchurch Heritage Festival.

The theme of the Heritage Festival,

which opened on Monday

and runs until October 28, is

‘Encounter Our Stories’.

City council head of urban

design, regeneration and heritage

Carolyn Ingles says the threeweek

festival has expanded from

what used to be an annual heritage

week, in a sign of its growing

popularity.

“With so many activities on offer,

many of them free, it’s a great

opportunity to explore our rich

cultural heritage and the central

city with the whole family. There’s

plenty on offer across the region

as well.”

LOCALLY OWNED

SINCE 1964

Smiths Mitre 10 all started in 1964, when Reg Smith

began trading as a coal merchant at 3 Waimairi Rd.

Over time Reg expanded these humble beginnings

into a complete hardware store, joining the Mitre 10

group in 1981.

Reg opened a second store in Farrington Ave,

Bishopdale in 1983. The store expanded a couple of

times on the same site, before moving into an old

supermarket site at 135 Farrington Ave in 1988. It

didn’t take long for this store to become over flowing

with products, so it was excellent timing when in

1998 the old Farmers building next door became

available, tripling the size of the store.

The Smiths were looking for a larger site again when

the earthquakes badly damaged the Sanitarium

buildings, leading to a shortage of Marmite.

Sanitarium and Smiths came up with an agreement to

share the site for a number of years, so Marmite could

be continued to be made and a MEGA store built. In

2017 the production of Marmite in Christchurch had

discontinued and the space now became available

for the existing Mitre 10 Mega store to develop larger.

October 2019 saw the expansion complete on the

existing site. The retail hall has increased by 30% with

6,850 additional products, the outdoor garden area

has doubled. Also having a fully functional Columbus

café installed means 54 Harewood road is even more

MEGA than ever and we are all really excited to show

you the new store, after 36 years in the making.

Papanui Mega is the sister store to Mitre 10 Mega

Hornby and Mitre 10 Beckenham.

Plan to change blood spinning rules

EXTRACTION: Harness Racing New Zealand has made

changes to the practice of blood spinning.

But racing industry under pressure to ban it

• By Sophie Cornish

CHANGES HAVE been made to

the rules around blood spinning

in the harness racing industry.

But Harness Racing New

Zealand is refusing to go public

with the revised rules.

The process of blood spinning,

also known as ACS or PRP,

involves collecting blood from the

horse using a needle, processing

it in a laboratory, and then reinjecting

it back into the horse.

In July, The Star reported

HRNZ would review the rules of

the practice after the controversial

process was slammed by industry

veteran David Phillips. He made a

submission on the Special Review

of Racing Integrity Bodies, as part

of Minister for Racing Winston

Peters’ Messara Report.

In the submission, Mr Phillips

said the process is cruel and

called for it to be banned.

Animal welfare groups PETA,

SPCA and SAFE have also raised

concerns about the process and its

effect on animals.

HRNZ says the process is used

as a therapeutic treatment to aid

the healing of horses’ injuries.

HRNZ general manager

corporate services Liz Bishop

said proposed changes to the

rules were approved at an annual

conference at the end of last

month.

There is a formal process to

go through before these changes

are incorporated into the HRNZ

rules of racing, which will happen

over the next month,” she said.

The revised rules of racing

will be published on the HRNZ

website, once this process is

completed,” she said.

The rules currently state the

process must be used only when

prescribed by a vet and cannot

be done within one clear day of

racing.

The Star understands the new

rules may involve a seven-day

withholding period on the reintroduction

of the extracted

blood.

However, Mr Phillips said

“tinkering with the number of

days (by a day or two or even

week or two) pre-race spun blood

can be used is useless.

“No horses should be prepared

for any racing on a ‘diet’ of spun

blood or EPO or other artificial

enhancers. Racing should not

be about who has the best and

latest ‘vet’ product. It should be

about horses competing on a level

playing field. Why has (HRNZ)

introduced a seven-day ban,

when before it argued vocally a

one-day ban

was sufficient?

What was

it’s evidence,

science and

vet advice to

support a oneday

ban? What

is it’s evidence

to support

a seven-day

ban?”

Mark Purdon

One of the

New Zealand’s most successful

stables, Rolleston-based All Stars

Stables, uses the process.

Its owners Mark Purdon and

Natalie Rasmussen own Equine

Blood Solutions NZ Ltd, which

offers the treatment to customers.

Purdon did not respond to The

Star when asked for comment on

the new rules.

After completing a degree

he started his own software development

business called Latch

Digital.

“I was working 12 hours a day

sometimes just staring at a computer

screen and that was pretty

tough on the mental health.”

He decided he needed a change

after five years in business and

started his building apprenticeship.

He said he has noticed a massive

improvement in his overall

well-being since doing so.

The whole thing of seeing the

fruits of your labour and getting

to stand back at the end of the

day and look at your work, that

has really helped me.”

He said his workplace, Premium

massive source of support.

“It’s open enough to sit down

$1.8m approved for

Main North Rd bus lanes

• By Claire Booker

FUNDING HAS finally been

confirmed for the contentious

bus lanes on Main North Rd.

The $1.8 million project, which

was scheduled to start in July,

will see bus lanes put in between

Winston Ave and Grassmere St.

Work on the project is now

expected to start early next

year and should take about four

months to complete.

The issue of bus lanes on Main

North Rd has been contentious

since it was first raised in 2017

when it was revealed the project

would mean a loss of on-street

parking for businesses between

Harewood Rd and Winston Ave.

The other concern for residents

was the turning movements at

the intersection of Grassmere

St and Main North Rd. Both of

these key issues were mitigated

by altering where the bus lanes

would start and approving traffic

signals.

Improvements will include a

full-time bus lane running north

from Winston Ave to Grassmere

St, a signalised intersection

at Grassmere St, walking and

biking improvements, layout

change to the Northlands

Shopping Centre car park

entrance and more trees on Main

North Rd.

GREEN LIGHT: After

a more than two-year

process, NZTA has

approved funding for the

Main North Rd bus priority

project. ​

Last week, the NZ Transport

Agency told The Star funding was

originally considered unlikely in

the current 2018-2021 period.

“After the recent review and

reprioritisation of National Land

Transport Programme projects,

funding was agreed to,” an

NZTA spokesman said.

The bus lane project has been

a key topic of debate between

Papanui Ward city councillor

Mike Davidson and Papanui-

Innes Community Board

member John Stringer, who

have opposing views on the

project.

The project was approved by

the city council in October last

year, which will pay for half of

the project costs.

Turanga, timeball applauded

• By Louis Day

THE TURANGA library and

Lyttelton Timeball Station are

two of eight buildings recognised

for their design.

The Christchurch Civic Trust

awarded eight buildings last

night for their contribution “to

the architectural, environmental

or cultural well-being of

Christchurch” and commended a

further five.

The civic trust applauded the

city council for the design of

Tūranga library.

The city council-commissioned

international architectural firm

Architectus to design the new

central library. The $92 million

building, which opened last year,

was described as the “by far the

most impressive and largest cityrun

library in the South Island”

by the trust.

The city council also received

an award for the restoration of

Risingholme Homestead Opawa,

as well as being commended on

its repair of the Nurses’ Memorial

Chapel and reinstatement of the

Woolston Community Library.

Heritage New Zealand received

BIG AND BOLD: The $92.7 million five-storey Turanga library opened in October last year (Right) – The Lyttelton Timeball

Station.

an award for its revamp of the

historic Lyttelton Timeball Station.

Built in 1876 to a design

by architect Thomas Cane, it

signalled the correct time for

ships in Lyttelton Harbour

until 1934 when radio replaced

it as a means of maritime

communication.

The reconstruction of the

station after it was destroyed

in the 2011 earthquake was

completed in October 2018.

The Avonside Girls’ and Shirley

Boys’ High Schools campus

was recognised for its “quality

of design and functionality of a

major new learning facility and

its value to the east Christchurch

community.”

As a consequence of the 2010

and 2011 earthquakes, both

schools were left with damaged

buildings and land, which led

to them combining on a single

campus. The new schools were

opened earlier this year at QE II

Park.

The campus has four sports

fields, three gymnasiums, two

theatres, a cafe and a cultural

space.

EROSION: The community wants more details on the

Southshore and South New Brighton estuary edge repairs.

Questions remain on

estuary edge repairs

• By Matt Slaughter

THE SOUTHSHORE and

South New Brighton estuary

edge will be repaired – the

question is when and how?

In August the city council

made the decision to repair

earthquake damage along the

estuary edge, which has left

the area prone to flooding and

erosion.

Concerned residents and the

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board have been asking for the

repairs to happen since the 2011

earthquake.

Some community members

said although they are pleased

the repairs will go ahead, they

want the city council to come

forward with details on when

they are likely to start and finish

and what they will entail.

Said city council head of

parks Andrew Rutledge: “At

this stage, we don’t have specific

start and finish dates for this

project. Currently, we are in the

process of developing a project

brief and preliminary costing

and design. This project has yet

to be fully scoped.”

Said departing community

board deputy chairman Tim

Sintes, who has been one of

the main campaigners for the

estuary edge repairs: “We have

been given a deadline, which

is 2020 when things will start

happening but an actual start

time, I’m not sure. We know

there’s a commitment to do

something, but what will it be?

That’s the question I’m getting.”

Slow start and limited success

FROM WHAT I can gather

of this parenting game, there

must be a whole lot time spent

doubting your abilities.

Whenever a friend’s child of an

age with Vittoria does some new

thing – talking, toileting, that sort

of thing – I tend to think along

the lines as to whether I should’ve

been doing more to get bubs to

match. Sounds dumb right?

Getting her back into sleeping

in her own bed and transitioning

her to using a potty are my

current goals. The thought that

out there, people I know go

through whole nights without

being woken up by a toddler

rolling onto their head and

snoring in their ears spurs on the

first goal.

Hearing about the elaborate

toilet training schemes of others

drives the second.

Because, lets be real, unless

you’ve done it before, how on

Earth do you train someone to

use the toilet?

The bed thing is pretty self

explanatory, it just takes sufficient

resolve and she’s been happy in

her own bed (in our room still)

for the last couple of nights.

The potty thing? I’m not so

sure. I tried slowly introducing

a potty by getting her to sit on it

before changing her clothes and

it worked amazingly. Once.

She successfully used it on

the first go, but the experience

FUN: Enjoying the noble

art of stick-fighting before

cleaning up.

traumatised her somehow, it was

actually an incredibly civilised

affair with a victory treat. After

four days I’ve only just bribed her

enough to sit on it again. But only

with pants her on.

So, slowly, slowly on that one.

VITTORIA

& Matt

I assume, like I said, I’ve never

trained anyone to use a toilet.

But like a little surprise

to boost my parenting

confidence, I discovered on

Monday that Vittoria is already

an environmentally and

community-minded young lady.

I’d taken her to Latimer Square

to run about in the sun and grass,

with a side order of first stickfighting

lesson.

Right after learning the basics

– stick sizes need to match and it

doesn’t count if you don’t make

“sword sounds” – she stopped,

turned, and rushed off to throw

a stray piece of paper in a nearby

bin.

But one was not enough, she

ran about cleaning up all rubbish

in a wide swathe of the square.

Even two coffee cups at once.

So, chalk that up to

gold-standard parenting and

one-step (sit?) at a time on the

other stuff.

City develops cycling culture

THERE’S MORE to cycling in

Christchurch than just getting to

work or school.

That’s the message from Robert

Fleming, coordinator of Biketober,

the city’s annual month-long

festival of the bicycle.

“A large number of residents

use their bike as transport,” Mr

Fleming explains. “However,

our city is becoming known as a

cycling city for more reasons than

the daily commute.”

Christchurch’s expanding network

of cycleways is one of those

reasons. In the past year, two new

cycle paths have been completed:

one linking the central city and

Halswell (where it ends by Te

Hāpua: Halswell Centre) and one

taking riders from the central

city to The Tannery complex in

Woolston.

With the list of cycling routes

growing, so too is the number

of people using their bikes. The

automated cycle counters around

the city are recording an increase

in the number of cycle trips

residents are taking. For example,

over the last eight months cycle

trips at the Antigua Street bridge

increased 17 percent on the same

time the previous year, and a St

Asaph Street counter registered a

12.6 percent increase.

Biketober participation reflects

this growth as the festival continues

to cultivate the city’s biking

culture.

“Our aim is to encourage people

to experience cycling,” said

Mr Fleming. “The events showcase

bicycles as being both practical

and enjoyable: a bike turns a

commute into a fitness session; a

cargo bike can eliminate a family’s

reliance on a second car; the

freedom of cycling gives children

a taste of independence. Cycling

can easily be everyday transport.”

An innovation of this year’s

festival sees the popular Biketober

Passport competition going

digital. Riders can use their

smartphones to collect electronic

stamps from nearly 50 participating

destinations across the city.

A tempting array of prizes (over

$7000 worth) is up for grabs by

MyPassport collectors, including

new bicycles and an e-bike.

“People are really starting to

take notice of how important

cycling is to our city,” said

Mr Fleming. “This year has

seen a jump in the range of

organisations keen to take part in

the festival – they see the benefits

bikes bring to our community.”

Biketober runs from

October 1-31. The full

calendar of events and

contest details can be

OUR PEOPLE – OLIVER HUNT

Eliminating waste from single-use medical

Young entrepreneur

Oliver Hunt took

home one of the top

honours at the Westpac

Champion Awards last

month, the Christchurch

City Council Champion

Business for Good

Award. His business

Medsalv works with

hospitals to reduce their

environmental impact

and costs. Louis Day

catches up with the

25-year-old

What is Medsalv?

So Medsalv is New Zealand’s

single-use medical device

reprocessor, so we take used

single-use medical devices from

hospitals where they would

usually go to landfill and we test

them, inspect them, clean them

and sterilise them, whatever is

required to get them back to a

reuseable, safe, clinical re-use

state and then we give them back

to hospitals for a lower price than

their original price.

What made you want to start

Medsalv?

I was discussing waste and

inefficiency in health with my

uncle and on the back of that

conversation we looked at some

medical devices that he had in

the back of his garage which

weren’t actually used but they

had expired and done some

more digging and found that

there is this huge waste stream

in New Zealand that isn’t being

addressed at all so it was really

that which made me want to start

the business and obviously being

able to provide a cost-saving as

well is a good thing. The three

core pillars are environmental

sustainability, financial and

patient care sustainability. We

are delivering fantastic resource

efficiencies when there were

originally none.

What is the dream for you?

In New Zealand, the goal is

to eliminate the 1700 tonnes of

waste from single-use medical

devices which we estimate is

going to landfill on an annual

basis and turn those into medical

devices which can be reused

once or more at least and deliver

a saving in the realms of $100

million per annum. That is where

we would like to get to because

that is what we think this is a

totally addressable problem.

Any plans to take Medsalv

overseas?

The problem in New Zealand

is massive so we are trying to

solve that before going into

offshore markets. Not ruling it

out though.

What age did you start your

business?

I was 23 when I started it.

What was it like starting a

business at such a young age?

Interesting, I have always been

driven to get involved and

pursue a project and essentially

this is just a huge project and

you know, this is a fantastic way

to learn a lot but also be able to

make a difference with it is great

too.

How did it feel winning the

champion business for good

award?

It was really fantastic to see

that what we are doing is getting

recognised and that people are

getting behind us, especially the

city council and the recognition

for what we are doing is great too.

Do you have any role models?

I think, Sir Paul Callaghan

has had some pretty good ideas

about technology and New

Zealand in general and I can see

some of them coming through

in New Zealand today. There are

obviously some people in the

startup world over here that have

done some amazing things, if you

don’t say Peter Beck then who

do you say? Also, the guys who

run companies like Icebreaker,

Jeremy Moon, Tim Brown with

Allbirds. There are so many

people in New Zealand that you

can look up to that have taken on

mammoth problems and made

a serious dent in them. I don’t

look up to any one person, I look

at particular people for their

strengths.

devices aim of young entrepreneur

What is it you enjoy the most

about your job?

I think it is probably being

able to align my personal values

with what I am doing on a day to

day basis. I am obviously really

interested in sustainability and

more equitable health. A key

reason for being is to deliver the

best health care to the most people

in the most sustainable way.

What are the biggest

challenges of your job?

There are a lot of people in

healthcare who defend the

status quo and the nature of our

business disrupts that which is

not necessarily easy all the time,

look where the status quo has got

us. The status quo is clearly not

delivering for New Zealanders.

What are your hobbies?

I am pretty into my outdoor

sports, surfing, skiing and

mountain biking are probably my

three passions, I quite like playing

tennis as well but yes, anytime

spent outside is a good time.

Where do you see yourself in

20 years time?

I haven’t even looked past 10

to be honest. Hopefully living in

a country with a far better and

more sustainable health care

system. But honestly 20 years is

a long way away, I’m only 25 so I

would be 45, so I’m not sure.

Wife and kids?

I would say I would have both

of those things and I think I will

be living in New Zealand and out

still skiing and mountain biking,

hopefully, there will be snow on

the mountains that is probably

my key concern for the next 20

years. Will I be able to surf or

will I be surfing halfway through

New Brighton over the shops?

But in terms of realising where I

see myself in 20 years, I hope we

have at least reached our goal of

saving New Zealand’s health care

sector $100 million per annum

and the problem that once was

no longer exists. Medsalv is a

problem that exists to solve a

problem that shouldn’t so if we

rid New Zealand of that problem

in 20 years we will be doing well.

What did you want to be when

you were growing up? Did you

always want to be repurposing

single-use hospital equipment?

For a long time, I actually

wanted to be an orthopaedic

surgeon which my uncle is. I

thought it was a cool way to

combine a mechanical passion,

being good with hands with

caring for people I also have a

family which I say is infested

with doctors which is a good

thing but I mean that was

engineering and the other

one which is where I started

my business, where I started

Medsalv, is in engineering

management.

Did you live the stereotypical

student lifestyle? Were you in

the University of Canterbury

Engineering Society?

Not so much the stereotypical

student lifestyle. I was on ENSOC

for a year but I was also on the

Canterbury University Board

Riders Association and got

involved in that, so yes, I did get

involved in student life.

Do you miss being a student?

Yes, there are obviously good

thing and bad things about

being a student. So yes to a point.

The good things about being a

student would be that you have

complete control over your own

time and nobody is checking

if you are going for lectures,

you can go skiing every day of

the week or whatever, few good

parties and you get to play with

some pretty cool stuff at the

university form an engineering

standpoint, they have got cool

equipment.

What were some of the bad

things about student life?

Well, you have got to go to

class eventually, you have got

exams. But on the whole that

would be about it, it’s mainly just

good fun.

OPINION

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

The coming week

in our history

October 10, 1975 - The

Government created the

tribunal to hear Māori

claims of breaches of the Treaty

of Waitangi. It has evolved ever

since, adapting to the demands

of claimants, government and

public.

October 11, 1861 - The

first Cobb & Co coach service

ran from Dunedin to Gabriels

Gully gold fields. Cobb & Co

reduced the time for the trip

from two days to nine hours.

The company was founded

in Melbourne in 1854. In

1861, its proprietor, Charles

Cole, arrived in Dunedin

with a luxury American

Concord coach, five wagons,

a buggy, more than 50 horses,

and a reputation for speed and

reliability. One week later, the

first ‘Cobb & Co Telegraphic

Line of Coaches’ service began

a new era in New Zealand

transport.

October 12, 1917 - Eight

hundred and forty three

New Zealand soldiers were

killed or mortally wounded

in one day during the Battle

of Passchendaele, probably

the greatest disaster in New

Zealand’s history.

October 13, 1975 - Whina

Cooper leads a 5000 march

to Parliament and presented

a petition signed by 60,000

people to Prime Minister Bill

Rowling. The primary aim

of the hīkoi was to protest

ongoing Māori land alienation.

October 14, 1979 - The

gangland murder of ‘Mr Asia’

Marty Johnstone led to the

demise of one of New Zealand’s

largest ever drug rings.

Johnstone was killed on the

orders of drug lord Terry Clark.

Divers found his mutilated

body in a flooded quarry in

England.

October 15, 2007 - Citing

the Terrorism Suppression

Act, police arrested 18 people

in raids linked to alleged

weapons-training camps near

the Bay of Plenty township of

Rūātoki.

Taken before their time

I RECEIVED a phone call on

Monday morning I knew would

come, but it was one I didn’t want.

It was news 19-year-old Megan

Hore had succumbed to the

cancer she and her family thought

she may have beaten.

The call followed another on

Sunday; Megan had slipped into a

coma and it was now just a matter

of time.

It felt like an almighty kick in

the guts. While the outcome for

Megan was now hopeless, you

never lose sight of the fact there is

always that slender chance.

The Star has followed Megan’s

battle with a form of bone cancer

through 2019. She had been

declared cancer-free in October

last year but as cancer often does,

it came back.

She had an amazing outlook on

life, a great supportive family, and

was a Disneyland fanatic. On her

wish list was a plan to visit every

Disneyland in the world.

Our articles prompted artist

Rangi Downes to get out his

brushes and paint Micky Mouse

paintings to help Megan’s

fundraising bid to help get to

the Disneylands. We got Richie

McCaw, Tom Walsh and Sophie

Pascoe to sign the paintings in a

bid to help raise money for her

trips.

Thanks guys for helping out. It

was appreciated.

Megan managed to visit a few of

those theme parks while juggling

her university studies. Her family

said she had a great time.

Cancer treatment is literally a

roller coaster and you can only

imagine the lows and then highs,

and lows again, Megan and her

family have endured over the past

year.

Things were really looking up

until August when she returned

to hospital for more checks.

Cancerous nodules were found

on her left lung and half of it was

removed. Megan deteriorated

soon after and she and her family

were told leukaemia had taken

hold. She only had months to

live and may not make it to

Christmas, they were told.

Megan’s death made me think

again about another remarkable

young woman, Trudi Johnstone.

Trudi was part of Canteen, a

support organisation for young

people with cancer.

Trudi, who was battling a brain

tumour, started writing a weekly

column for The Star, 14 years ago.

It seems like yesterday.

Trudi was a natural writer,

had an insight into what

people wanted to read and as a

result her column had a great

following.

Like Megan, Trudi’s battle

was a roller coaster and for a

long period of time it looked like

the brain tumour was beaten.

Trudi was always positive,

bubbly and did an amazing

job week-in week-out, always

getting her column in on time

and written to about the right

length to fit the space on the

page.

Then when everything was

looking just so good for Trudi,

who was in her early 20s, the

world for her and family turned

360 degrees.

The tumour had come back and

was aggressive.

Trudi remained positive and

insisted writing her column as her

condition deteriorated.

She had visits in hospital

from many well-wishers,

including one of her favourites

Dan Carter.

Life can be very cruel. Two

amazing young people taken well

before their time.

As my grandmother once

said: Try and make every day a

good day.

Readers respond to an

article about the white

supremacist posters

found at the Canterbury

University campus

Meren Iscariot – This is

what happens with unlimited

free speech, we tolerate those who

preach hate and division and this

is what happens when those ideas

have room to grow.

Julian Visch – Nutters

whom still live in their parents

basement.

Jo Kenji Tanouye – I’m

glad Canterbury University has

no place for racism and hate.

Wish the same could be said for

Auckland University.

Ben O’Connor – Free

speech?

Jo Hosking – At least we

know who to avoid and who the

police can keep an eye on.

Some people seem incapable

of changing their beliefs, so in

some ways, it’s better that they

are open about it, rather than

forced underground and fuelled

by others hate towards them to

inflict their own hate crimes.

Sometimes it’s better the devil

you know, than the devil you

don’t.

Emma MacDonald – Just

rip them down if you see them.

Or make awesome and witty

counter posters?

people are thanking the media

for every second in the spotlight

they’re given.

Readers respond to an

article about the home

detention sentence given

to a man who sexually

assaulted two women in

Katrina Criglington –

People wonder why Christchurch

has got a lot of crime, in my

opinion it is because if you get

caught all you get is a slap with a

wet bus ticket. I feel that if you do

the crime you should get punished.

Home detention is not punishment

for a lot of people.

Instead it is time to sit on the

couch and do sweet nothing all day.

These judges are doing no favours

to the Christchurch community by

handing out such weak sentences.

Jude Brown – That sentence

is a freaking disgrace. I’ve known

people to get the same sentence

for having a couple of tinnies.

Denis Lynn Gillison

– I really don’t know what is

happening to our justice system.

He will do it again and next

time it could be worse. Come on

sentence.

Maria Green – And why

to commit these offences against

anyone. What is wrong with our

justice system?

Chris Knight – No justice to

are far too lenient.

This guy should be locked up

Holly Bryce – These days it

Readers respond to a

starnews.co.nz article

about a group of irate

rugby fans who say they

will sue Spark Sport for

$250 million over its

issues with live streaming

the Rugby World Cup

Joan Debbie – I always

knew it wouldn’t go well. For

a start there’s not enough fibre

connections in NZ or fast

broadband.

Amelia Anne Carter – I

don’t think it is Spark’s fault, I

think it comes down to the type

of TV customers have. We use

Chromecast from my phone

to our TV and we have had no

problems.

Nic Davies – Not the end of

the world – more money than

sense, only a game.

Graeme Brown – Well most

of us that deal with Spark on a

regular basis knew it was never

going to work.

Rob Harrison – I got told

to do the same and offered

no discount after repeated

breakdowns while watching EPL.

I watched the (All Blacks) game

free to air as I didn’t want the

hassle – $120 down the drain so

far.

Isaac Murray – There is a lot

of misguided recommendations

or accusations going on here. A

few things to bear in mind. If

you are using the app on your

smart TV and you experience

disruptions, try loading a

YouTube video on another device

also on wireless. If that struggles

to buffer, try again on a wired

device, if that fails to buffer

then it’s likely your bandwidth.

If YouTube loads fine on wired

but not wireless, disconnect all

wireless devices (aside from your

OPINION 25

TV) and try moving your router

closer to your TV. If you are

using a range extender you are

creating an additional wireless

hop for an AV signal to travel

through. When streaming live

media it is a broadcast, meaning

any lost data packets are unlikely

to be caught in a back log and will

be lost for good (or will stream

rapidly to catch up to real time

footage). Try eliminating the

range extender, too. If your range

extender is wired to your router

then it shouldn’t be an issue. The

app was first released on Samsung

TVs and later on LGs, Panasonics

etc. It was a beta version app

for an alarmingly long time and

was only made available to late

model TVs, meaning the wi-fi

antennas on those TVs should be

good enough to ensure seamless

live AV streaming. There is a

chance that the TV, albeit late

model, has not got adequate

componentry, in which case you

may try streaming through your

phone to a Chromecast or Apple

TV etc. The fact of the matter

is it was a rushed production

by Spark, which also took little

responsibility for the fact that the

streaming service was dubious

even prior to release. However,

this should not detract from ISP

services (or any other ISP for that

matter). It is not an ISP issue, and

unless you’re on ADSL or 4g in a

congested location, it is unlikely

to be an incoming connection

issue.

or if you’ve never owned a

pet, come and join Scott as

he brings forth a veritable

INSPIRATIONAL: Eleanor Hurton won two trophies at

the Canterbury University Blues Awards and received four

nominations for the community awards.

PHOTO: CHRISTIAN LEE – CERVID MEDIA ​

YOUNG, SUCCESSFUL

& on the move

• By Jess Gibson

ELEANOR HURTON has

found strength in living with a

disability.

And now, she is empowering

other young people to do the

same.

The 25-year-old master’s student,

who has a hearing disorder,

received two major trophies at

the Canterbury University Blues

Awards.

She won the outstanding contribution

to equity and diversity

award and was a joint winner of

the most prestigious community

award the outstanding achievement

in community engagement.

Miss Hurton received four

nominations for the community

awards – the most ever received

in the community section since

the category was added to the

awards three years ago.

“I feel very humbled. As a

young person with a disability,

when I won multiple Blues

Awards I didn’t win them for

myself, I won then for everyone

in the disabled community who

strives to make Aotearoa a more

equitable and accessible country

for people with disabilities,” she

said.

“It great deal to me because

the work many of us do in the

disability space is often unseen

and unrecognised so it was really

special to be acknowledged

by the university, and by the

members of my community who

nominated me for the awards.”

Miss Hurton was diagnosed

with auditory processing disorder,

which affects how the brain

processes speech, in 2017.

She had been struggling with

her hearing since she began

studying at university in 2014,

and in spite of numerous hearing

tests in the year prior, a cause had

not been found.

It was only after she pushed to

be referred to specialist services

that a diagnosis was finally made.

Following an initial bout of

thinking APD was the worst part

about her, she came to terms with

her diagnosis and decided she

would support others who may

feel like they had to hide their

truth.

Since then, Miss Hurton has

gone on to set up ReDefine:

Youth Development Programme,

which aims to redefine what it

means to be a young person with

a disability and empowers them

to take on a positive identity.

Miss Hurton is on the management

team of Youth Voice

Canterbury, providing pathways

for young people to be included

and involved in decision-making,

to have a voice and to be leaders

in their communities.

“I carry my community with

me in everything that I achieve.

I would not be able to do what I

do for my community without

them.”

She is the first person with a

disability to ever be on the committee

for the Christchurch City/

Banks Peninsula community organisation

grants scheme, which

has allocated over $700,000 of

funds to the disability sector.

Additionally, she has featured

on the New Zealand Human

Rights Commission “Proud to

be me” website, which helps to

help raise the voices of disabled

New Zealanders by sharing their

stories.

She was also selected as one of

50 young people with disabilities

to attend the I.Lead Conference,

New Zealand’s first national

conference for youth with

disabilities, in Wellington last

month.

Actress returns to direct Pasifika play

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

TANYA Muagututti’a was in her

early 20s when she was cast to

play a key role in an original play

capturing the challenges Pacific

Islanders face when they move to

New Zealand.

Now, 25 years on, the original

cast member is back as a director

for Pasifika production Fresh Off

the Boat.

Muagututti’a has been asked

by The Court Theatre to direct

the show – which she first toured

with her theatre company Pacific

Underground in 1993.

Written by Oscar Kightley and

Simon Small, the play successfully

toured the country before

heading over to Australia and

Samoa between 1993 and 1995.

“I am pretty blown away to

have been asked, I feel very fortunate

to have been part of that

early journey and coming to a

point now where it is a new generation.

I am honoured to be able

to direct it,” Muagututti’a said.

She said the writers of the

show are her old friends and to

bring their play to the stage 20

off years later adds to the honour.

Set in Christchurch, Fresh Off

the Boat focuses on the challenges

Pasifikas face when they

move to New Zealand.

Although the show was first

performed in the early 90s,

SHE’S BACK: Original cast member Tanya Muagututti’a (third from right), has been asked

to direct Fresh Off the Boat for The Court Theatre after first performing as an actress in the

production in 1993. Muagututti’a with the 2019 cast and crew.

Muagututti’a believes it is now

more important than ever the

story is told.

She said there are all sorts

of challenges faced by Pacific

Islanders when they first move

to New Zealand – from culture

shock to language barriers.

“I think that is why it is such

a relevant story today – not only

in Christchurch but all over the

world,” Muagututti’a said.

Muagututti’a said Fresh Off the

Boat is a well-known story in the

cities’ Pasifika communities.

“Twenty-five years later, this

story is really about enforcing

that Aotearoa and Christchurch

needs to embrace all people who

come here,” she said.

The show will truly be a family

affair for Muagututti’a. Two of

her daughters – Talia-Rae and

Josephine Mavaega will play the

roles of Evotia and Ula in the

production.

When Muagututti’a first

‘This story is really about

enforcing that Aotearoa

and Christchurch needs to

embrace all people who

come here’

– Tanya Muagututti’a

performed in the production

in 1993, she played the role of

Ula, alongside with her sister

Mishelle.

In the new production, her

husband Pos Mavaega is the

sound designer while her

brother-in-law Tony De Goldi is

the set designer.

While Muagututti’a is a firstgeneration

New Zealander she

shares a deep connection with

her Samoan culture.

When her father moved to

New Zealand between the 1930s

and 1940s, children were told off

and beaten for speaking Samoan

and had to sacrifice their

language.

Muagututti’a said she is hoping

the production will inspire

performers of a Pasifika heritage

to keep sharing their stories and

give them a sense of identity.

•Fresh Off the Boat

will run at The Court

Theatre from October

19 to November 9. To

GREEK SEASONED

PORTERHOUSE STEAK

WITH CUCUMBER AND

TOMATO SALAD

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

SLOW-COOKED BEEF

SHORT RIBS

Ingredients

Thursday October 10 2019 The Star

FOOD 33

Ingredients

450g porterhouse steaks (cut into

2cm thick pices)

1 medium lemon

1 tablespoon Greek seasoning

(see recipe below)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium cucumber (cut

lengthwise in half, then crosswise

into thin slices)

4 slices red onion

2 cups halved grape tomatoes

1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese

Salt and pepper

Directions

Grate lemon peel and squeeze

one tablespoon juice from

lemon.

Combine Greek seasoning (see

below) and lemon peel with two

tablespoons olive oil. Reserve

two teaspoons mixture for salad.

Press remaining mixture

evenly onto beef steaks. Let it sit

for about 20min.

Place steaks on grill over

medium heat. Grill covered for

15-19min, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, combine reserved

two teaspoons seasoning

mixture, lemon juice, cucumber,

tomatoes, red onions, and cheese

in medium bowl, stirring to

combine.

Carve steaks into slices. Season

with salt, as desired. Sprinkle

with blue cheese. Serve beef with

cucumber and tomato salad.

In a small bowl mix spices

together and store in a sealed

container.

For the Greek seasoning,

use one teaspoon cracked

black pepper, two teaspoons

garlic powder, two teaspoons

onion powder, two teaspoons

dried parsley, one teaspoon

dried oregano, one teaspoon

dried basil, one teaspoon dried

rosemary, one teaspoon dried

lemon peel, one teaspoon

dried thyme and 1/2 teaspoon

marjoram leaves. Mix all the

ingredients together in a small

bowl. Store in an air-tight

container.

Olive oil, for frying

6 beef short ribs

1 large head of garlic, cut in half

horizontally

1 heaped tablespoon tomato

purée

1 x 750ml bottle red wine

1-litre beef stock

150g pancetta lardons

250g small chestnut

mushrooms, trimmed and

halved

Sea salt and freshly ground

black pepper

Chopped flat leaf parsley, to

garnish

Directions

Preheat the oven to 170 deg

C. Heat a deep-sided roasting

tray on the hob and add a glug

of olive oil. Season the short

ribs thoroughly, then fry for

10-15min to brown really well

on all sides.

Add the halved garlic head,

cut side down, pushing it to the

bottom of the pan.

Add the tomato purée and

heat for 1-2min to cook it out.

Pour in the wine to deglaze

the pan, scraping up the bits at

the bottom. Bring to the boil

and cook for 10-15min until

the liquid is reduced by half,

then add stock to nearly cover

the ribs (you’ll need less stock

if your roasting tray isn’t very

large). Bring to the boil again,

basting the ribs with the juices.

Cover the roasting tray with

foil and cook in the preheated

oven for three to four hours,

basting now and then until the

meat is tender and falling away

from the bone.

About 10min before the short

ribs are ready to come out,

fry the pancetta for 2-3min

until crisp and golden. Add

the mushrooms and cook for

4–5min until tender. Drain off

any excess fat.

When the short ribs are ready,

remove from the oven and

transfer to a serving dish.

Squeeze the garlic cloves out

of their skins and pass through

a sieve.

Spoon off any excess fat from

the beef cooking liquid, then

strain it through the sieve and

mix with the garlic (if the sauce

is too thin, reduce the cooking

liquid by heating for 10-15min

more after straining).

Serve the short ribs topped

with the hot pancetta and

mushrooms and the sauce

poured around.

Garnish with chopped flat leaf

parsley.

Tips to improve your outdoor living area

POPULAR: Producing healthy food is good for the soul and satisfying for the

pocket. (Right) – Use stone as a means of decoration.

TURN THE corner and we

are almost there, the warmer

weather is a sure indication

Christmas is not far away.

Wise are those who plan and

work in advance. Unfortunately,

most of us wait until the last

minute to work on our gardens,

just before the big day arrives.

Often we find the task either

too big or too difficult, hence

a lot of us leave it incomplete

or even worse, don’t start at all.

Well, here are some simple tips

to improve your outdoor living

areas.

You can always let the cobwebs

inside take care of themselves, at

least they catch flies.

One: If your garden is too

much to handle then simplify it.

Look at what plants you have.

Your likes and dislikes. Too big

or too small? Leaf droppers or

sun blockers? The list goes on.

Ascertain what has to go and

get rid of them. You may be

surprised at how simple things

make a big difference.

Two: Remember, often less is

best. At this stage you may need

to seek some professional advice

to help keep in mind the picture

you want to create.

Three: If your garden and

plant maintenance is high and

you’re finding it hard to cope,

then weed out the problem. For

example, it just maybe time to

realise that the roses are no longer

suitable. Remember you can

always substitute them with an

alternative plant.

Four: Consider building

raised gardens with timber or

garden sleepers. Besides adding

a point of interest, you have the

added benefits of a well drained

garden that is easier to maintain.

You may even consider split

level gardens which will add an

aesthetic value to your piece of

paradise.

Five: Consider plants that

either give off scent or produce

food. This is an increasingly

popular trend, with the benefits

of producing organic fruit and

vegetables being both healthy for

the body, good for the soul and

satisfying for the pocket.

Six: Make your garden as

maintenance-free as possible.

Consider alternatives to bark and

mulch using non-organic product

such as decorative stone and

using a quality non-woven weed

matt for weed control.

Seven: Consider painting or

staining timber fences, retaining

walls and other wooden structures.

This will give a fresh look

and can be colour co-ordinated

to enhance your overall look and

design.

Eight: If the task is too much

or you need some advice call

your professional landscaper for

help. There may be things you

haven’t considered.

A WATER feature in the garden

gives a different dimension and

adds value to your home.

Apart from it having a cooling

effect that is soothing for the soul,

the sound of gurgling water has a

meditative, relaxing quality about

it.

Water can enhance any garden

and when used effectively, has the

power to attract the maximum

attention compared to any other

garden feature.

In smaller gardens where space

is a constraint, water is best used

in conjunction with a sculptured

feature or a fountain, or a little

rock garden which could easily

be the focal point of your little

stretch of paradise.

If you do happen to own a bigger

garden, a free flowing pond

could work wonders. There is a

lot you can play around with, in

terms of plant and marine life that

can add to its visual appeal.

The added advantage being,

fish can get rid of the mosquito

menace. To increase the darkness

or depth of the colour of water,

you can dramatise the effect by

using dark, large-leafed evergreens.

The shape and style of your water

feature will be dictated largely

by the site itself and whether you

want to just get wet and play with

the family or just add aesthetic

appeal to your home.

Style will depend on the architecture

of your house, the shape

and contours of the site and the

character and dominance of the

surrounding landscape. Simple

shapes are usually the best for

garden ponds.

They generally look best, cost

the least to construct and are

the easiest to maintain. If you

are unsure about the shape or

size, consider consulting a good

landscape designer or landscape

architect.

The best way to decide on construction

materials is to discuss

their various merits with experts

in hydraulics, pool contractors

and friends with existing pools.

Initial cost, ongoing maintenance

and visual appeal should all

be considered. Once you’ve decided

on the kind of water feature

you want, you may need to decide

whether the water is flowing or

static.

In a pond it’s easy to achieve

moving water on a small scale

with a lowvoltage garden pond

water pump.

Don’t forget to take into account

the safety factor for children.

Another important factor

you should take into consideration

is the ease of cleaning and

general maintenance.

If in doubt, keep it simple. A

shallow sheet of reflecting water

can be as stylish and far less work

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

to keep looking good.

Shallow water and dark colours

are the key to good reflections.

Whatever its size or style, a

water feature certainly makes the

garden very attractive, adding

elements of beauty, sound and

reflection to the landscape.

BMW X5 represents

power and comfort

IT WAS over 40 years

ago, I was walking along

Riccarton Rd and stumbled

on a car sales yard which

had a BMW 2002 for sale.

Quite obviously it had

been a private import – it

was left-hand-drive – but

it made an impression on

me, I was very keen but the

price was way out of my

budget. It was one of those

cars which cemented my

long-held desire for sports

sedans.

BMW has come a

long way since then, not

only does it still produce

desirable sedans but like

most manufacturers today,

the majority of sales are

gleaned in the sport uitility

market.

Early this year the company

launched its latest

generation X5, and BMW

New Zealand is landing it

here in three specifications,

other variants are sure to

follow.

At present there is the

choice of two six-cylinder

3-litre diesels or a 3-litre

six-cylinder petrol. The test

car was the xDrive30d, the

entry model at $135,200.

The other variants are the

xDrive40i at $147,900 and

M50d at $177,900. The new

X5 is true to its heritage, it

is the large sport utility vehicle

that impresses with its

build quality, performance

and economy.

It is also chock full of

specification, the list is way

too long to detail considering

it was also fitted with

many of the specification

items from BMW’s long list

of optional extras.

Personally, I could do

without all the bells and

whistles, the X5 is a car

with purpose, it is there for

the family car buyer who

also needs practicality, and

it does that well within its

design parameter, even

though it is just a five-seater

only. Comfort levels are

high, and the X5 travels

quietly and smoothly.

Much of the latter is

due to the sophistication

within the suspension and

driveline. BMW rates the

2993cc diesel at 195kW and

620Nm; as a performance

car builder, the company

has produced an engine

with remarkable outputs,

both developed low in the

rev band at 4000rpm and

2000rpm respectively.

Drive is passed through

an eight-speed transmission

to all four wheels, this

process almost seamless

and contributes to the

refinement of the entire

package, it’s uncanny how

the gearbox can harness the

high power outputs without

BMW X5: Serious four-wheel-drive system.

notice. There are also several

drive modes which can

be tempered to suit each

individual’s driving preference.

In terms of performance,

• Price – BMW X5 30d,

$135,200

• Dimensions –

Length, 4922mm;

width, 2004mm;

height, 1745mm

• Configuration

– Six-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

2993cc,

195kW, 620Nm,

eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.8sec

• Fuel usage –

7.2l/100km

the big X5 has a solid turn

of speed, it will accelerate

to 100km/h in 6.8sec, and

will return a fuel usage

combined cycle average

of 7.2-litre per 100km

(39mpg), that fits with the

evaluation car’s readout, it

was showing a constant average

of around 8.8l/100km

(32mpg). It also showed

a 5.5l/100km (51mpg)

instantaneous figure at a

steady 100km/h cruise, the

engine unstressed at a lowly

1300rpm.

On the road, the X5

cruises with much dignity

and poise, as you would expect

from a luxury European

car. I drove the fabulous

high country roads taking

in State Highway 72, the

scenic route between Canterbury’s

two main river

gorges.

The X5 has handling and

control that is akin to models

from the company that

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

has such an enviable sporty

car heritage, including that

old 2002.

I’m not saying the X5 is a

sports car but it does have

attributes that draws in that

technique as a car maker.

The 30d rides on huge 22in

wheels and that contributes

greatly as to how the X5

feels from behind the wheel,

not withstanding that fourwheel-drive

enhances grip

in the first instance.

The X5 buyer can push

quickly into a corner with

the knowledge that it has

ability, and offers reassurance

at the same time.

While its handling and

surety must be described as

well above average, it does

so without compromising

comfort, body movement

is well controlled without

the spring and damper rates

being overly firmed.

As I’ve alluded to, the

X5 is a large SUV, it sits at

just under 5m and it has a

wealth of internal space so

that occupants can spread

out and enjoy the associated

benefits.

If you think that comes at

the cost of rear load space,

that’s certainly not the case,

BMW claims an 645-litre

cargo carrying capacity,

stretching to 1860-litres

with the rear seats folded

flat.

The X5 has carved out

a healthy part of New

Zealand’s SUV market, the

new model will only add

to its appeal, it’s a versatile,

practical all-rounder, and

one which through its quality

build will serve and last

for many years.

I certainly hope to get a

drive with the other engine

choices.

WORLD ENDURO champion

Hamish Macdonald is back

home for a month and off

to “party” after a gruelling

six-month campaign in Europe.

The 20-year-old returned to his

family home at West Melton over

the weekend as the FIM 125cc

youth enduro world champion

after overcoming a serious injury

in the middle of the season to

claim the title.

“I’ll have a month off the

bike to catch up with friends

and family and just party for a

while,” he said.

“I was signed on a one-year

deal so I knew it was a case of

make or break for me, which I

guess is a fair bit of pressure but

it has paid off,” he said.

The result means he is likely

to be back competing in Europe

next year but nothing has been

confirmed at this stage.

“It’s always been a dream of

mine to be a world champion,”

he said. “It hasn’t always been

easy, it’s been a hard road and

there have been plenty of injuries

but hopefully this isn’t my only

world title.

“To come home as a world

champion is simply amazing.”

Macdonald competed in the

championship two years ago as a

one year deal with Sherco Racing

for 2019.

Macdonald repaid that faith

and has now set himself up for

plenty more opportunities in the

near future.

“In the off-season, I just

trained by myself and because

I was mostly on my own it was

hard to figure out if I was going

fast enough to be a genuine contender

but it all worked out.”

Macdonald has the interesting

distinction of winning a world title

before claiming a national title.

He said of suffering a broken

scapula in his shoulder and his

clavicle in May: “It knocks your

confidence when you’ve been

riding so well. I was off the bike

for over a month and you’d be

surprised how much your fitness

drops away.

“Round five when I got back,

it was tough, I struggled my arse

off that day.”

Macdonald credited his family

for their unwavering support and

always believing in his dream.

He said to have so many

friends and family there in

France with him when he won

The Keas

have been the

dominant

force in the

premier

rugby league

competition in

recent years.

Auimatagi

will continue to

coach the Canterbury

Bulls,

Andrew

Auimatagi

which were defeated by Akarana

in the national premiership final

over the weekend.

The former Keas and Bulls

player admits he considered stepping

down 12 months ago, but

was convinced to come back for

another campaign by senior players.

He says stepping down will

allow him to seek other national

and representative level positions.

“It’s time to have crack at

some of those other jobs now.

Stepping away from club footy

frees up a bit of time,” he said.

This week Auimatagi was

named the New Zealand

Residents coach for their

upcoming match against

England Community Lions on

November 1 in Auckland.


TRY-SCORING machine

Josh McKay took home the

big honour at last night’s

Canterbury Rugby Awards at

Rydges Latimer.

THe outside back was

deservedly named the

supporters club player of the

year.

McKay is currently the top

try-scorer in the Mitre 10 Cup

with nine. He also leads the

competition in metres carried.

Meanwhile, Canterbury lock

Chelsea Bremner was named

the women’s player of the year.

A number of up-and-coming

stars were also recognised,

including Sam Darry who was

named under-19 player of the

year.

Darry was part of the High

School Old Boys side which won

the metro premiership.

He was also a key cog in

Canterbury’s under-19 national

title-winning side. Off the

pitch, Hornby president John

Catchpole was named volunteer

of the year.

CRFU chief executive Tony

Smail said the evening not only

celebrated the teams in red and

black, but also the hundreds

of volunteers, administrators,

coaches and players who help

rugby to thrive in the province.

“We have a lot to be proud

of here in Canterbury, and

our 2019 awards evening was

testament to the growth in our

game this season,” said Smail.

“We acknowledged what has

been a successful season to

date, but we did so knowing

that the year is far from over

for some of our teams and we

took the opportunity to wish

those teams the best of luck

for the remainder of their 2019

campaigns.”

to see something special is on

the line.

With Tasman seemingly

clear favourites in the Mitre

but this season still has the

potential to be a very special

one for rugby in Canterbury.

Injury forces

defending

champ out

of Canty Open

• By Gordon Findlater

AN ABDOMINAL tear will

prevent young tennis star

Reece Falck from defending his

Canterbury Open title at Wilding

Park this weekend.

On Tuesday Falck was eliminated

during the first round of the

junior ITF Garden City Championships.

He was the tournament’s

second seed, but struggled with

pain during his 5-7, 4-6 loss to

James Sim. The same injury

forced Falck to pull out of the junior

ITF tournament in Auckland a

week earlier after advancing to the

semi-finals. However, he made the

decision to play through the pain

this week, in spite of his physio’s

recommendation to rest for two

weeks.

Last year Falck became the

youngest ever winner of the open,

which was first played in 1901 and

has included some of the biggest

names in New Zealand tennis,

such as Onny Parun, Brian Fairlie,

Alistair Hunt, David Lewis

and Mark Nielson.

This year, the open doubles as

one of Tennis New Zealand’s new

$6000 Kiwi Money Tournaments.

The men’s and women’s singles

champions will win $1400, while

beaten finalists will leave with

$600.

Falck’s decision to pull out

will see last year’s runner-up

Remi Feneon and Connor Heap

become the two local favourites.

Qualifying begins tomorrow and

the main draw starts on Saturday.

Rugby entering ‘dangerous territory’ over head contact

RUGBY IS entering very

dangerous territory by rewarding

ball carriers or tacklers

for putting themselves in

compromising positions.

The Rugby World Cup has

very quickly become known

as the first tournament to put

emphasis on the TV match official

becoming overly involved

at every opportunity. One thing

that needs to be realised is in the

past four years, the TMO has

made the biggest leap in terms

of development over any other

aspect of rugby.

Long gone are the days of the

only TMO involvement being

around ball grounding on a try

decision – but is it a good thing?

The 2015 World Cup in England

was the first major tournament

to include the ‘Hawk-Eye’

system, allowing the TMO to

live rewind play and watch any

camera slowed down while play

continued. Since then, TMOs

have perfected the craft, and

four years on, are now showing

they’re not afraid to jump in for

any contact to the head.

With more angles available

and without disrupting the

broadcast, more incidents are

going to be – and are being –

spotted. Before this, the TMO

would only have access to the

same footage you and I would

see at home. Next week the

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

real nail-bitters arrive as the

knockout stage start, and the

way the World Cup has gone to

date, you can bank on a team

being reduced to 14 men due to

someone from the opposition

putting themselves in a dangerous

position.

I hope I’m wrong, but unless

defensive coaches manage to

implement a tackling technique

that allows players to magically

disappear when a ball carrying

player’s head drops 30cm just

before contact, then we’re going

to be faced with the prospect of

one of the biggest games of the

tournament not being played at

full strength for its entirety.

So what do we do? No one

wants to see another moment like

Australian centre Samu Kerevi

being binned for protecting the

ball with his arms when running

into contact with Welsh first-five

Rhys Patchell who displayed a

tackling technique which would

be heavily scrutinised at schoolboy

level. How good would it be

if the two captains took onus and

talked the referee into letting 30

men remain on the park over

something so trivial. The best

course of action going forward is

to adopt what the NRL do. Their

referees might not know the

|difference between a fresh set

and last tackle sometimes, but

putting someone on report rather

than an instant punishment is

the answer. If it hasn’t made an

impact on a scoring opportunity

and isn’t blatant foul play, let the

game remain at full strength and

hand punishments

out later.

believe again?

YOUNG Christchurch karting

star Louis Sharpe is in good

form heading into the ROK Cup

International final in Italy this

weekend.

The 12-year-old made a

positive start to his first time

competing in Europe at the

weekend.

Sharp won the B final at the

29th Autumn Trophy held at

the South Garda track near

Lonato, east of Milan – the same

destination as this weekend’s

ROK Cup.

After qualifying 17 out of 102

HEATHCOTE celebrated in

style after a historic first ever

win in the Metro Premiership

at the weekend when they upset

Sydenham in a rain-reduced

match at Hagley Oval.

The win was the club’s first

in the top grade after winning

promotion from the Metro

Championship last season. Following

the win they returned to

their clubrooms in the evening

for a dress-up party.

The theme for the team was

anything British. However, as

part of initiation to the club, the

team’s imports sported somewhat

skimpy dresses. The team were

in great spirits and celebrations

following the historic win didn’t

finish until nearly 4am

Earlier in the day a drizzly

start meant just two of the four

premiership matches were able to

be completed. Heathcote and St

Albans were able to secure a full

10 points, while Burnside West

University, East Christchurch

Shirley, Old Boys Collegians and

Lancaster Park all had to settle

for five points for abandoned

matches.

New boys Heathcote admit at

the start of the day they would

have been happy to settle for five

points.

“We buggered off to a coffee

shop, then went back and it still

wasn’t decided so we went for

another coffee,” said injured

Heathcote bowler Ben Cochrane

who instead opted for a pint due

to not playing.

“Sydenham hung around the

whole time and got the hessian

[cover] out and kept on trying to

dry the pitch.”

Play eventually got under way

mid-afternoon and the match

reduced to 22 overs a piece. Batting

first Heathcote got off to a

bright start through opener Matt

House who scored a quick fire

31 from 20 deliveries. English

all-rounder James Hunt also put

together a handy 29 as Heathcote

got through to 131/7.

Sydenham made a bright start

in their chase and looked favourites

at 88/3 in the 15th over.

However, Nicolaj Damgaard and

Jordan Horrell ripped through

Sydenham’s middle order with

three wickets each and struck

enough of a blow to the run chase

to Sydenham 129/7 – giving

Heathcote a four-run victory.

Elsewhere a 69-run stand

between Amandeep Arora and

Matt Laffey wasn’t enough to

help Riccarton chase down St

Albans total of 130.

In the Championship there

were wins for Lancaster Park,

Old Boys Collegians – who

defeated a Marist Harewood side

including Black Cap Matt Henry

– and Burnside West University.

Meanwhile, the match between

Riccarton and Sumner was

abandoned.

Rebounding from past reminders

The Silver Ferns open

the next chapter in their

battle with Australia

when the Constellation

Cup begins at Horncastle

Arena on Sunday.

The Star continues its

Canterbury sporting icons

series with a look at a

player who was under

the spotlight in arguably

the biggest moment of

the two teams rivalry.

Sports reporter Gordon

Findlater spoke with

Donna Wilkins

ALMOST 20 years on from a

crucial missed shot in the final

minute of the 1999 World Cup

final in Christchurch, Donna

Wilkins (nee) Loffhagen still

faces constant reminders of the

moment.

“Oh people still go on about

it,” said Wilkins.

“It was all my fault and I

should have got it in, but nobody

looks to what happened in the

semi-final and if I hadn’t of shot

so well we wouldn’t have been

in the final, but unfortunately

when you lose in netball it’s usually

on the shooters shoulders

and it’s about dealing with those

moments and being able to pick

yourself up and go out there

the next week and do the same

thing.”

Defining Wilkins’ career in

one moment is far too unfair

though. Wilkins wasn’t just

a 56-cap Silver Fern, she also

played close to 100 games for the

Tall Ferns and came agonisingly

close to becoming just the second

Kiwi to crack the WNBA.

Growing up in Woodend

Wilkins began basketball and

netball from a young age. While

at Rangiora High School she

made the Canterbury women’s

basketball side at just 14. She was

also still a teenager when she

made Canterbury’s NPC netball

side. At 17 she made the Fall

Ferns and a year later was in the

Silver Ferns. Starting her international

career at such a young

age it’s easy to forget she was just

21 at the 1999 World Cup.

After three campaigns with

Canterbury Wilkins made a

move to Southland in 1998

which would prove successful.

From 1998 until their final season

in 2007 before merging with

the Otago Rebels they played in

10 straight finals and won seven

national championships.

Bernice Mene was playing for

the Southland team so I came

down and played with her. It

was just for three months . . . one

year turned into two, three, four

and then I was here for 10 years.

Now I’m still here,” said Wilkins.

“It was a pretty surreal experience.

I don’t think many sporting

teams have achieved what

we achieved . . . it was a great

environment to be a part of. I

think we only had 43 players that

played over that period.”

Wilkins went onto play for

the Southern Steel in the transtasman

league before later stints

with the Mainland Tactix and

Central Pulse.

At international level Wilkins

won silver medals at both the

1998 Kuala Lumper and 2002

Manchester Commonwealth

Games – being narrowly pipped

by Australia on both occasions.

She also won a basketball silver

medal at the 2006 Melbourne

Commonwealth Games with the

Tall Ferns.

However, arguably Wilkins

finest moment for the Tall Ferns

came at the 2004 Olympic

Games in Athens.

“That was probably the

highlight. I had a pretty good

tournament and we beat China

to get through to the top eight

which was unheard of for New

Zealand,” said Wilkins.

At the 2004 games Wilkins

was the tournament’s top

rebounder, averaging 10.6 rebounds

per game.

“I always liked to get in there

and give it a go with those tall

timbers,” she said.

Her displays in Athens no

doubt played a part in her coming

within a whisker of playing

in the WNBA.

In 2006 Wilkins was given a

trial which lasted six weeks with

the Connecticut Sun. She came

close to making their final roster

for the season. At the time the

Sun were regarded as one of the

top teams in the league after

making the WNBA finals in

2005.

“Every day they’re cutting

players. If you get cut early you

can usually go to another team

and trial there. They kept me

right up until the day before

the first game and then but me

which meant I couldn’t trial with

another team,” she said.

“That was pretty devastating

because I believe if I had of gone

to another team I could have

been playing and who knows

how your life shapes if that had

of been the case.”

HIGHS AND LOWS: Donna

Wilkins experienced three

close loses to Australia in

major tournament finals

with the Silver Ferns,

including an overtime

thriller at the 2002

Manchester Commonwealth

Games. (Above) – In 2004

she was the top rebounder

at the Athens Olympics

playing for the Tall Ferns.

She had success playing in

the Australian women’s

basketball league with Canberra

and was a key part of the team

which won the 2006/2007

championship. The following

season Wilkins played for the

Christchurch Sirens who spent

one year in the league before

folding due to being financially

unviable.

These days Wilkins lives of a

farm near Balfour 35 minutes

north-west of Gore with husband

Mike Wilkins and their three

children. She coaches a school

netball and basketball team. She

also coaches the Southland men’s

netball team. The team won the

B grade section at the New Zealand

men’s national tournament

in Wellington.

“We’re pretty much in the

middle of nowhere. It’s a nice

little community. There’s like 100

kids at the local school,” she said.

“I spend every other moment

driving in the car taking my

three kids to whatever sporting

engagement they have every

day.”

Wilkins will be in

Christchurch this weekend to

watch the Silver Ferns match

against Australia.

When selecting a building site weigh up your lifestyle, family

needs and aspirations before signing up for any section.

Those purchasing early on in the

development of a subdivision will

have more choice of section size and

orientation to the street and sun. As

the individual sites are sold, there may

be less availability though this need

not be a deterrent. With good design

any building site can be made to work.

The size of the house and amount

of yard desired will influence the

feasibility of some building sites as

will sun and wind direction, bearing

in mind that a house can be designed

to capture the sun’s free heat and allow

for pleasant outdoor areas to enjoy.

If the street side of the building site

is north/north west, incorporating

fenced or planted courtyards can offer

private places to entertain and bask in

the sun.

Those wanting street presence

or keen on gardening may prefer a

corner section and while it might seem

they offer less privacy, with strategic

placement of fences quite the opposite

can be the case.

Weigh up your family’s needs in

terms of the outdoor areas too. Do you

want play areas for your children? Do

you have a need for off-street parking

for a number of vehicles and space for

a boat, caravan or motorhome, which

may need to be parked out of site of

the street? How much lawn or garden

do you want?

Start by identifying housing

developments that you like and could

see your family living in. Think also

about the convenience of shops and

other amenities, something that may

or may not be a concern.

Single out possible sections then

talk with a designer or builder. Most

building companies have a good

selection of standard plans as a starting

point and they will usually work with

a client to modify a plan or draw up

one that will work on a particular

building site, whilst also containing

the components the client is seeking

within their new home.

Before signing up for any building

site, check the Council land zoning

and recession plane requirements as

well as covenants for the sub-division.

These will show not only how far from

a boundary the house can be sited but

also roof height, permissible building

materials, and acceptable types of

fencing, as well as what can be on

view from the street like a clothes line,

caravan or motorhome. Conducting

your research first will save any

frustration or hassles later.

All sections are workable, it is simply

a matter of choosing one that matches

your specific needs.
