Roading,

rates

reductions

priorities

for new

councillor

• By Claire Booker

THE PEOPLE who voted Sam

MacDonald onto the city council

can be guaranteed he will try and

fix their roads and reduce their

rates.

Cr MacDonald is the new councillor

for the Waimairi Ward,

after spending the last three years

on the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board, and

past 18 months as chairman.

He plans to address the roading

issues by making sure it is a priority

in the next long term plan and

hopes to see visible progress in

the next year.

“If we can tidy up our roads and

our footpaths, that’s what our local

ratepayers are wanting.

“I will be working with my

new colleagues to make sure it

[roading repairs] is a priority in

the annual and long term plans,”

he said.

In terms of rates reduction, Cr

MacDonald said the best way to

achieve this would be by ensuring

the city council is run efficiently

to lower its operating expenses.

Students study Northern Corridor impacts

• By Claire Booker

ST ALBANS residents want

more greenspace and the ability

to use their streets safely, a

student study has found.

With the Christchurch

Northern Corridor set to open

next year, the suburb is in for

some major roading changes.

So a group of Canterbury

University geography students

decided to ask residents what

they want for their area in a

three-month study.

The residents said they

want people and safety to be a

priority, rather than cars, when

the Christchurch Northern

Corridor opens next year.

Said Canterbury University

student researcher Matt Stent:

“In response to some of the

major changes and work being

planned within the suburb of

St Albans and the surrounding

area, we were interested in

finding out what some of the

positives people saw in their

streets and what could be

improved,”

Mr Stent said the students

findings will not be

implemented by them, but the

information will be available

to the St Albans Residents

Association to use in the future.

“We are working to help the

residents association understand

community so they can keep

pressuring for the best outcome

he said.

In Brief

KAPUATOHE REPAIRS

Earthquake repairs and strengthening

work is set to start this

month on the Kapuatohe former

schoolmaster’s house and cottage

in Belfast. Neighbours may notice

extra noise during construction,

and fencing will be up around

both buildings. Once the repairs

are complete, it is intended the

buildings will be used for residential

purposes. Work is expected to

be finished mid-next year.

HEALTH CENTRE CONSENT

A decision on a resource consent

application for a new health

centre in Ilam is expected in

the next two weeks. Doctors,

physiotherapy, podiatry, mental

health services, a pharmacy and

gift shop are earmarked for the

Memorial Ave complex which will

be called Ilam Health. The twostorey

building will be 1267 sq m,

with 46 car parking spaces.

Laryngeal paralysis in dogs

Laryngeal paralysis is a complex, typically progressive,

condition commonly affecting older large breed

dogs resulting in severe difficulty breathing especially

with exercise. This isn’t a common condition but when

these dogs present all hands need to be on deck. These

dogs can often present extremely distressed, unable to

breathe, collapsed and “blue”. Firstly if the dog presents

as an emergency they need oxygen via a cannula or

mask FAST. Often due to their distress at not being able

to breathe, sedation is necessary to calm these dogs

down as is cooling ( For example, fans and wetting

down). Occasionally intubation under anaesthesia

or a temporary tracheotomy can be lifesaving in this

situation.

This condition is best managed surgically but surgery

isn’t undertaken lightly and usually these operations

are performed by specialist surgeons. Discussions

need to be had with the client on the procedure and

possible complications post surgery, as in aspiration

pneumonia ( occurs in about 20% patients as a lifetime

risk with or without surgery). If these dogs are to

be managed medically we need to focus on weight

management, exercise control, environmental factors

like living in cooler climates and checking to make sure

these patients are not hypothyroid. Long term medical

management doesn’t have much impact on the disease

really and its likely to get worse due to its progressive

nature. While surgery doesn’t change the disease

progression, it is the preferred approach for long

term management and quality of life for the dog. The

surgical procedure can be tricky requiring anatomical

knowledge of the larynx and associated structures,

delicate specialised surgical instruments, careful control

of bleeding and excellent aftercare for the patient.

The response of dogs to surgery is excellent and you’ll

notice a few hours post operatively these dogs are

breathing easier already.

Each surgeon has their preferred technique and

you need an accompanying surgical nurse who is

competent in anaesthesia. These surgeries are often

performed in the morning so the surgical nurse has

all day to monitor the patients breathing, recovery

and vital signs. These patients are either discharged

to an afterhours hospital for the night or sent home

for aftercare with their family. They need to be in a

“cool’ and ‘calm’ environment, with no boisterous dogs

around for distractions. Diet consists of small meals

of meatballs fed from a height- avoid dry, sloppy and

liquid diets, as the dogs swallowing may be impaired

due to generalised neurological impairment.

“Bella” an 11 year old Border Collie recently had this

surgery performed at McMaster & Heap Vet Practice by

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Dr Helen Milner, a Registered Specialist in Small animal

Surgery. Bella developed difficulties breathing about 3

months ago quite suddenly. She quickly became puffed

and tired on walks and could only exercise a fraction of

what she was previously doing. Bella had lost her voice,

had effort exhaling on lying down and often looked like

she was having an asthma attack on exercise. This was

distressing for Bellas owners who wanted a better, more

active life for her.

So far so good. Bella can finally once again breathe

with ease - a tremendous outcome for all concerned,

especially Bella who can once again enjoy 3 hour runs

in the Port Hills, chasing rabbits and stalking ducks. The

hardest part has been keeping her rested and quiet for

4-6 weeks post surgery to avoid complications. Bella is

raring to go and looks essentially normal although she

has permanently lost her bark, which the neighbours

are quite stoked about.

Dr Helen Milner now works out of McMaster & Heap

Vet Practice doing Specialist Referral surgeries from

November of this year. Our new hospital has a dedicated

specialised theatre and surgical area and we have

purchased all the necessary surgical instrumentation

to perform referral surgery. A consultation is necessary

before surgery is planned. Please call the Practice if you

would like to find out more about this service.

Dr Michele McMaster

please remember the

NEW CLINIC OPEN DAY

on 30th November 12-3pm, where you’ll get

a chance to walk through our new facility

and chat to all our staff.

Update from Bella’s mum

Bella still thinks she is a young dog at 11 years old…

there are lots of things we thought she would grow

out off as she aged like jumping up on people when

she greeted them and trying to round up cars… She is a

very lean dog who loves her food and walks in the hills

but equally as happy lying in wait in the back yard for

the neighbours car to start up…. She has a wee bit of

arthritis in her back knees but otherwise is a very happy

and healthy dog.

So it was quite surprising when one day she chased

some rabbits in Wanaka on a walk and came back

breathing like an asthmatic - gasping and rattling.

She recovered within a few minutes and we didn’t

think much more of it - maybe just old dog breathing.

Gradually over the next couple of months her

breathing, while exercising heavily, got worse and then

we noticed a change in her bark. She suddenly seemed

to have a weird squeaky bark - she kept looking round

to see where the bark had come from. We videoed her

while exercising and headed off to see our vet, Dr Steve

Heap.

Steve looked at the video and immediately diagnosed

her with Laryngeal Paralysis. At this stage she was

only having issues breathing while exercising and was

having no problem eating. Steve felt, given how fit

and healthy she was, surgery was definitely an option

for Bella. And luckily for us they had Dr Helen Milner

coming on board at the practice who had done loads of

these tricky referral procedures. Plus she was happy to

come and operate on Bella before she had even started

her new surgical role at McMaster & Heap Vets.

Our meeting with Helen quickly dissipated any fears we

had that Bella was maybe too old for major surgery. She

went through every step of what was involved including

any complications and what her recovery period would

be like. We instantly loved Helen and felt we were in

great hands. She has huge empathy with her patients

and Bella loved her too. She was gentle and thorough

in her work up of Bella. She felt Bella would recover well

and would be back walking in the hills before we knew

it. She gave us a huge amount of reading material about

GOLPP which certainly helped in our decision making.

A few days later Bella was back for surgery at

McMaster & Heap. The surgery went really well with no

complications. She came home that afternoon, was a

bit woozy that night but the next day she up and ready

for action. That has been the only downside to surgery

- keeping her quiet and rested for 6 weeks! She has a

brand new flash looking harness as can’t be walked with

a collar anymore. Her ‘bark” has disappeared for good.

Her stitches are out and her wound looks amazing. After

a week of hand feeding her small meatballs she is back

eating her normal diet out of her bowl.

So far so good - watch out Port Hills rabbits. It won’t be

long till Bella is back on the chase…

• By Claire Booker

RETIREMENT village

residents practised their

dance moves for months

before performing a flash

mob in the middle of

Northlands Shopping

Centre last week.

Residents at the Summerset

on Cavendish in

Casebrook have been busting

out dance moves for

the last two months four

times a week in the lead up

to last week’s flash mob.

Resident Gary Busfield,

76, and his wife Dawn were

dancers in the flash mob,

and said the whole thing

was “brilliant.”

“We got to know people

who live in the village

From page 1

Corban prevailed in the

junior ski 13 to 15-year-old

lites, the amateur classic ski

and amateur ski lites class.

He not only beat the best jet

ski riders in his age-group,

but adults as well.

“My goal was to win one

but it was pretty cool to win

all three,” he said.

“It was very rough conditions

over there and I love

much better, and we got a

bit of exercise at the same

time.

“It was an honour to be

there. At first, we were reluctant

to do it – we didn’t

know what the hell we

were getting ourselves into,

but as time went on, we got

more and more enthusiastic,”

Mr Busfield said.

Village manager Stephanie

Meehan came up with

the idea to show people

that going into a retirement

village doesn’t mean

you are old and can’t do

things.

“I wanted to show people

a snippet of our wonderful

residents and the fun that

we get up to. So I came

up with the idea of a flash

racing in that so it really

helped me. Often it was very

windy but that suited me.

We all do 10 laps and race

each other at the same time.

A lap can take up to 2min.”

The jet skiers reach speeds

of up to 50km/h, Corban

has been racing since he

was 10, but first got on a jet

ski when he was five.

His father Chris, was a

national champion in 1995

mob as everyone has fun

when they dance,” she

said.

Some residents even

turned down visits with

their families because they

were “too busy at dance

rehearsals.”

Mrs Meehan said the

flash mob has helped to gel

the community together.

“Often when I walked

around the village I would

hear the mix match of music

being played and look

into the recreation centre

and see groups of residents

practising their steps.

“It’s been a beautiful

and enlightening time to

be a Village Manager and

watch our wonderful residents

blossom,” she said.

Rough conditions suit racer

and owns a jet ski shop. “At

the start dad was my trainer

and I just got on with it

and gave it a go and really

enjoyed it.”

Corban will focus on the

national championships

in March at Cambridge.

“There will be plenty of

racing for me to do over the

summer, but the nationals

will be my major focus to

get ready for.”

Four new community board faces

• By Claire Booker

FOUR NEW faces have been

elected to represent community

boards in Papanui, Innes,

Waimairi and Harewood.

In the Papanui Ward, Simon

Britten has been elected to the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board. He is joined by Emma

Twaddell, who has taken the

community board seat for Innes.

Mr Britten won his seat by 18

votes against Nathan McCluskey,

this was the closest margin in

community board seats across

the city.

Ms Twaddell said she has

received positive feedback from

the community on her election,

and hopes her “big-picture view

of the world” will be a good skill

in the new role.

Ms Twaddell is excited to be on

the other side of the council, after

18 years of watching as a resident.

“I’m looking forward to getting

more insight of how the council

and community board works and

see if I can piece it together and

make it work better,” she said.

Community board members

Emma Norrish and Ali Jones

both retained their board seats,

with former members John

Stringer and Jo Byrne losing their

seats.

In the Waimairi Ward, Mike

Wall has been elected to the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Simon Britten

Emma

Twaddell

Community Board, and he is

joined by Harewood Ward community

board newcomer Jason

Middlemiss.

Mr Wall has more than 18

years of experience in local

government. He served on the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board for three

terms – two as chairman – before

being elected as the Waimairi

Ward councillor.

The ex-police officer was “overwhelmed

and surprised” to be

elected onto the board after not

being involved for more than six

years.

Mr Wall’s key priorities are

repairing footpaths and roads in

the area, particularly in Russley

which he said: “Didn’t look like

they have been touched since

they were put in 30 or 40 years

ago.”

Mr Wall is looking to put his

name forward for the role of

chairman but said he would not

be too worried if he didn’t get it.

Jason

Middlemiss

Mike Wall

“We just need to get on with

things,” he said.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board members

Bridget Williams, David

Cartwright, Shirish Paranjape

and Linda Chen were all reelected.

Aaron Campbell departed the

community board with the hope

of securing an Environment

Canterbury Christchurch West

seat but was unsuccessful.

The first meetings of the new

term will be held on November 4

(Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood)

and November 8 (Papanui-

Innes).

He is not opposed to reviewing

assets, and would never rule out

asset sales, but he said that would

require a majority of councillors

to vote in favour, which he

thought was unlikely.

“I would never rule it [asset

sales] out, but I think in the

practical way is driving efficiency

changes to reduce rates,” he said.

Cr MacDonald has secured the

city council seat after formercouncillor

Raf Manji decided not

to run for re-election.

Cr MacDonald hopes his background

as a chartered accountant

will serve him well in his new

role.

I thought it would be really

useful to do that,” he said.

Cr MacDonald said it is a “huge

privilege” to be able to represent

the Waimairi Ward, and he was

“thrilled with the result”.

His other key priorities include

tackling the issue of water chlorination

and getting the multi-use

arena under way, but he will also

remain “fully committed” to local

issues.

“As much as I will take on that

city-wide focus in the new role, I

will obviously continue to focus

on local issues for everyone,” he

said.

Councillor’s Mike Davidson,

Pauline Cotter, James Gough and

Aaron Keown have retained their

seats.

Movement classes promote

health and wellbeing

The importance of keeping our body

moving throughout our life is now widely

recognised – not only to maintain muscle

and bone strength, but also to help our

brain stay healthy and alert, and create a

sense of wellbeing and positivity.

Among the many options for regular

exercise and movement, such as walking,

cycling, swimming, going to the gym,

there is one that may not be so well

known, but offers a significant range of

health benefits for all ages – Nia, or nonimpact

aerobics.

different movement forms, the benefits

of Nia include creating weight loss and

proper weight maintenance, alleviating

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

NOR’WEST NEWS

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior clients

visit complaining of pain in one or both hips.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around the

joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a back

muscle could also be the cause, as shown in

the image.

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year old

client with severe arthritis who walked with a

stick, told her, “I will end up in a wheelchair,

I cannot put any weight through my right leg

due to pain in my hip and buttock”. “Within

4 treatments, she was walking with her stick

but without the severe pain,” says Ietje. “The

arthritis was one of the factors that made her

muscles spasm but the other was that older

people move less and the flexed position

the hip is in when we sit is particularly bad

for the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health and

wellbeing.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise program

designed to mobilize and stretch the hip,

strengthen the important core muscles and

increase general strength and balance. They

teach a movement sequence that stretches

the hip in all directions whilst the client is

able to lie safely on their bed, perfect for

older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles released

and being taught how to maintain it, is

enough to stay on top of the problem. If

severe arthritis is the underlying cause, some

maintenance therapy may be necessary, but

that is often more affordable and, for older

patients, better tolerated than surgery. In

very few treatments the client will know if

it is going to work for them or not, without

financial commitment.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

A natural remedy for good health

Black Seed oil is often referred to as “The Remedy

for all things.” The Prophet Muhammad called it “a

remedy for every illness except death.” Black seed

oil is extracted from black cumin seeds (Nigella

sativa) & has been used therapeutically for over

3,300 years, since its first reported discovery in

King Tutankhamun’s tomb. For thousands of years

it has been used by practitioners of Ayurvedic &

Chinese traditional medicine for an endless list of

conditions, from migraines to diabetes & cancer.

Since 1959 scientists have carried out over 600

peer review studies proving many of its remarkable

health benefits. It has been shown to be medicinally

very effective against various illnesses including:

cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, inflammatory

conditions, infertility, neurological & mental illness

as well as various infectious diseases due to bacterial,

fungal, parasitic, & viral infections. According

to the “National Institute of Health” superbugs

are becoming a significant public health risk

as they are virtually impossible to treat. In the

USA an increasing number of hospital patients

are developing infections from superbugs with

more than 90,000 of these patients dying every

year. Researchers at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical

College wanted to confirm the benefits of black

seed oil against these superbugs compared with

common antibiotics. According to the study,

“out of 144 strains of superbugs tested, most of

which were resistant to a number of antibiotics,

97 were inhibited by the black seed oil. Microbes

or micro-organisms have been linked to most

disease & there are few things known to be

as effective against them as the black seed oil.

Croatian scientists studying mice with cancers

found that the phytochemicals in black seed oil

resulted in a 52% decrease in tumor cells. Diabetes

drugs can have numerous side effects but research

by the “Indian Council of Medicine” found that

black seed oil helps regenerate pancreatic cells &

decreases elevated serum glucose in both type 1 &

type 2 diabetes.

Amazing Herbs in the USA produce the original

& #1 selling organically sourced premium black

seed oil. When looking at unbiased reviews of

this oil on the internet it is amazing to see the

incredible results people are getting with it.

Comments like: miracle product, this product is

amazing, it works!!! It really works! are common.

Put your shine on for Race Day!

Race Day is around the corner and your

appearance is on the top of your mind. You are

probably thinking about your outfit. Your style.

Your lips. Your smile. Your skin. Oh yes, your

skin.

Your skin is just coming out of its winter

hibernation and is thirsty for attention. Now is

the time to contact Turn Back Time Beauty for

care.

These local skin experts are home to a machine

that is sweeping the globe. This machine is based

on LED technology and offers eleven beauty and

healing treatments within one facial mask.

LED was invented by NASA as they were

looking for a light source to grow plants in space,

from this they found that it had amazing skin

cell rejuvenation and it wasn’t long before LED

infrared was used in hospitals around the world.

Doctors then noticed patients started looking

younger whilst under a program of RED LED

light treatments after their surgery and injuries,

which led them to study colour. It was found that

skin cells recognise colour and that each colour

has a job to play in the performance of the living

skin cell.

People from all over are experiencing

documented results in:

Anti-Ageing – Wrinkles, Age spots, Scaring

Anti-Acne – Antibacterial, Reduces

inflammation

Cell Rejuvenation - Eczema

Asking price: $1,350,000

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 2 living rooms | 2 office/study | 3 car-garage

2 off-street parks - Listing Number: SM0267

This luxuriously appointed executive home

is up-market and impressive. Designed

by highly regarded O’Neil Architecture

and built by quality hill specialist DJ

Hewitt Builders this home is highly

specified with local stone and peace of

mind construction. Well positioned just

above Redcliffs on the lower slopes you

will enjoy spectacular ever-changing and

uninterrupted views across the estuary to

the ocean incorporating Moncks Bay and

Shag Rock.

Live all on one level as the upstairs hosts

everything except the triple car garage

and the 5th bedroom/office. Two light

filled living areas have huge walls of glass

and over height ceilings giving a spacious

bright feel. The stunning streamlined

kitchen has engineered stone benchtops,

an island breakfast bar, walk-in-pantry

and a clever study nook for flicking off

the quick email while you wait for dinner.

Warm timber floors and deep charcoal

carpets are complimented by fresh white

paintwork for a clean contemporary

look. The front of the home wraps

around extensive decking to maximise

the sea views from nearly every room.

Entertaining family and friends will be a

pleasure on the enormous sundrenched

decks with built in BBQ and seamless flow

from both living rooms.

There are four excellent sized bedrooms

with a striking tiled main bathroom. The

master suite has a corner window seat with

dazzling views and timber louvres to let in

the cooling sea breezes. It has a large walkin-robe

and fully tiled ensuite bathroom

with dual vanities and large walk-in

shower. Three of the bedrooms have direct

access onto the front deck while the 4th

has sliding corner doors that could double

up as a media room.

There is level access into a triple car

garage with internal access and plenty of

off street parking. The property has been

beautifully landscaped with extensive

use of local Redcliffs stone in both the

construction of the house and the garden

walls giving that final touch of class.
