“OH MY god, she’s alive.”

That was the reaction from

Reuben McCormack who was

part of the dramatic rescue of

a climber who fell 600m on Mt

Rolleston, near Arthur’s Pass,

on Saturday.

The off-duty policeman had

been climbing in the area when

he chanced upon the climbing

partner of the woman who

had fallen, a 25-year-old from

Christchurch.

“We all assumed she would’ve

died. With a fall like that, it’s

not normally survivable. And

the fact she went over several

bluffs, too,” he said.

Senior Constable

McCormack, who is also

a search and rescue team

member, said he saw the

woman’s climbing partner,

called Chris, just above him on

the mountain.

“Only the lead person, Chris,

saw where she fell,” Senior

Constable McCormack said.

“He said to us: ‘I’ve lost

Lauren’. We said: ‘What do you

mean you’ve lost her?’ And he

said: ‘Down there’ and pointed

down into the Bealey Valley,

which is a huge drop.

“We thought: ‘Oh, that’s not

survivable’. Then we decided to

re-group ourselves and make

a plan to get Chris safe and get

people down to find her.”

Once the helicopter had

arrived, a radio was winched

down to Senior Constable

McCormack, who explained

what had happened.

They then went down the

valley and they saw her in a

gully.

They told us on the radio:

‘She’s waving at us!’ And that

was the first we knew that. ‘Oh

my god, she’s alive’ that was a

very exciting moment for us.

Just to know she was alive.”

lights

lobbying

goes

• By Louis Day

NEW ZEALAND Cricket

appears to be lobbying to get the

controversial 48.9m permanent

lights installed at Hagley Oval.

NZC sent out an e-newsletter

outlining its support of the

Canterbury Cricket Trust’s bid

to get the six permanent lights

installed to cricketers as far away

as Auckland.

“Given there are currently

no South Island international

cricket venues with lights, New

Zealand Cricket strongly supports

the CCT’s proposal and invites

readers to make submissions to

the two authorities involved,” the

e-newsletter read.

A record number of submissions

have been made to associate

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Minister Poto Williams over

the plan, the city council has also

received more submissions on the

plan than it did on the proposed

$10 million grant towards the

Christ Church Cathedral.

NZC public affairs manager

Richard Boock said he was unable

to respond to questions yesterday

by The Star.

Hands Off Hagley spokesman

Martin Meehan was not surprised

by the number of submissions

made considering “New Zealand

Cricket had emailed every cricketer

in the country.”

He said his son who plays

cricket in Auckland received the

e-newsletter.

A WOMAN’S generous offer

at a McDonald’s drive-through

started a chain reaction of

customers paying for other

people’s meals.

Rolleston McDonald’s shift

manager Lizzie Treymane said

the woman came through the

drive-through about 5pm on

Tuesday and insisted on paying

for the meal of the motorist

behind her as well.

“She said she wanted to pay

for theirs too. It was a $50 order

so that was pretty incredible.”

Ms Treymane said when the

next vehicle came through to

pay for their order and staff

told the driver their food had

already been paid for, they were

shocked.

“We said that the customer

before them had already paid

for their food and they were

shocked, so they wanted to pay

for the order behind them too.”

This led to eight cars in the

drive-through paying it forward

for customers behind them.

“Everyone is entitled to their

own opinion but this is not a

popularity contest,” he said.

Mr Meehan thought the lights

would “visually dominate Hagley

Park” and did not see earthquake

recovery laws as the appropriate

process to install them.

“Basically the process that

is being used, section 71, it is

emergency legislation and this is

not an emergency, it is a manufactured

emergency.”

Mr Meehan said the group had

not made their submission but

planned to do it soon.

The trust wants to use earthquake

recovery laws to fast-track

the installation of the lights in a

bid to secure high profile games

for the 2021 Women’s Cricket

World Cup matches. It has also

applied to the city council for a

new lease to accommodate the

lights.

Crown-council planning

agency Regenerate Christchurch

has applied to associate Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Minister

Poto Williams on behalf of

the trust to fast track changes to

the District Plan under section

71 of the Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Act to allow for the

lights to be installed.

More than 860 written submissions

have been made on the

proposal so far.

A spokesman from Ms Williams’

office said this was already

the highest number of submissions

to have been made on a

section 71 proposal with public

consultation not closing until

November 20. Ms Williams will

then have up to 30 working days

after submissions close to come

to a final decision.

CCT chairman Lee Robinson

was also not surprised by the

record number of submissions.

“I think it is important that

people have their say because

there is a passion and resolve in

cricket to get this over the line,”

he said.

the lights.

The CCT has also applied for

a new lease to the city council

to accommodate the six lights.

The city council is also receiving

feedback on this and has collected

more than 1850 submissions

so far.

This is already more than the

1457 submissions received over

the proposed changes to Denton

Woman banned

from owning

horses after SPCA

investigation

A CHRISTCHURCH woman has

been disqualified from owning

horses for 10 years.

The SPCA said it prosecuted

Lisa Corfield for recklessly illtreating

four horses.

Corfield pleaded guilty at the

district court on Wednesday

and was sentenced to 250 hours

community work, ordered to

pay $300 towards legal costs and

$7046 in reparations.

She was also disqualified from

owning horses for 10 years, and

her seven horses currently in

SPCA custody were forfeited to

the SPCA.

The SPCA said the case was

started in March 2017, when

its inspectors responded to an

animal welfare complaint about

nine horses belonging to Corfield.

The defendant was already

known to the SPCA, as there had

been a number of complaints and

welfare issues identified as far

back as 2013, the SPCA said.

The grass in the horses’

paddocks was so low that there

was no grazeable grass, and 30

per cent of the grass surface was

contaminated with faeces.

There was no evidence of an

additional feed supply.

Of the nine horses, four were

assessed to be in emaciated

body condition and two were

in thin body condition. Due to

the immediate concern for the

horses and their lack of food,

a veterinarian was called in to

assess the animals and hay was

fed out.

A notice was left at the

property, requesting the

defendant urgently contact the

SPCA.

However, no contact was

received, and the SPCA

consequently seized all nine

horses.

A veterinarian assessed four

of the horses – named Karma,

Sophie, Angel and Diamond – as

having a body condition score

of zero out of five – or extremely

emaciated.

Two of the horses died. One

was euthanised two days later and

another was put down six months

later. The remaining horses

were brought back to health and

transferred to foster homes.

From bake-off to take-off

Uni student

research

project

LARISSA WILSON is preparing

for the voyage of a lifetime: A

mission to Mars – or at least an

experience that comes close.

Last year, Miss Wilson starred

in New Zealand TV series, The

Great Kiwi Bake Off, a spin-off

of one of the United Kingdom’s

most popular shows, the Great

British Bake Off.

The Canterbury

University mechanical

engineering student wanted

to prove there was a science to

baking.

Now, her degree is taking

her to the Mars Desert Research

Station in Utah, United States,

where she

will spend two weeks

researching.

The station, owned and

operated by the Mars Society,

is a space analogue facility

supporting earth-based research

in pursuit of the technology,

operations and science required

for human space exploration.

Set in a Utah desert much

like the Mars surface, the

station offers opportunities for

field studies as they would be

conducted during an actual space

mission.

Said Miss Wilson: “I am

incredibly excited to take part

in a simulated Mars mission

with a crew of talented and

“I have loved the idea of

space exploration and learning

about outer space since I was

a small child. I feel incredibly

honoured to have been selected

as part of Expedition Boomerang

and I’m eager to experience what

being an early explorer of the red

planet might be like.

“Some of these projects will

require me to take on a lot of

new information and I hope to

learn about the application of a

range of fields of science such as

geology and human biology in an

‘alien’ setting.

“I also hope to complete some

of my own research, possibly

in the realm of acoustics

engineering which is the field

in which I plan to work,” Miss

Wilson said.

involved with the Mars

2011.

Abortion Legalisation Bill: Miriam’s

• By Sophie Cornish

MIRIAM WAS just like any

other 20-year-old in the 1980s.

But, after being told by

her doctor she was unable to

conceive, she fell pregnant.

The unthinkable happened

and at 20 years of age I fell

pregnant to a young man who

was bordering on alcoholism,”

she said.

Like a lot of other young

women her age, Miriam’s biggest

fear was what her parents would

think.

“My mother was very

supportive of whatever decision

I made. I couldn’t bring myself

to tell my father and swore my

mother to secrecy.”

The events that followed

changed Miriam’s life forever.

Now in her 50s, Miriam

wanted to share her story in

front of the Select Committee for

the Abortion Legalisation Bill,

designed to hear the views of the

New Zealand public.

But she was denied the

opportunity, along with 95 per

cent of submitters who wanted to

speak.

In August, the first reading of

the Bill passed overwhelmingly

in Parliament, with 94 votes to 23

votes.

Abortion is described as a

‘conscience issue’ meaning MPs

are able to vote independently,

free of their party.

The Bill still has two more

readings to complete before

coming law.

The select committee, which

must present its findings to

Parliament before February 8,

confirmed earlier this month

it had received 25,000 written

submissions on the proposed Bill.

But, it only heard 150 oral

submissions, out of 2890 people

who asked to speak.

The committee previously said

it would be highly unusual to

hear all of the submitters and that

the quality of the input, not the

speed of the process, was the only

consideration.

It said it ensured all major

organisations and different

perspectives were heard and

invited submitters from a range

of industries such legal experts,

medical professionals, faith-based

organisations, national bodies,

and individuals.

‘Who could feel

comfortable in this place?

We’re all there for the same

reason. We’re all suffering

in one way or another with

the decision we’ve made’

– Miriam

In comparison, the End of

Life Choice Bill, which aims to

legalise voluntary euthanasia,

received a record 35,000

submissions last year, while

same-sex marriage legislation in

2012 had 22,000.

The Euthanasia Bill heard 1350

oral submissions over 16 months.

Unable to share her story to

the committee, Miriam spoke

to The Star about her choice to

terminate her unborn child and

her struggle of failing to conceive

again and have any children of

her own.

At a late stage, 12 weeks along,

Miriam said she made a rushed

decision to terminate her baby

upon pressure she felt from a

medical clinic to decide what to do.

“I needed to make a decision

quickly. I felt pressured. Driving

with my mother to the abortion

clinic I still had thoughts of

calling it off.”

Miriam described the “long

and uneasy silence” among the

other women waiting at the

abortion clinic.

“Who could feel comfortable in

this place? We’re all there for the

same reason. We’re all suffering

in one way or another with the

decision we’ve made.”

Miriam later admitted her

experience was a “terrible mistake.”

“I was afraid I wouldn’t be able

to cope. There is nothing easy

about abortion because life is

being taken away.

“In speaking to my mother later,

she told me that she had spoken to

Dad about it. His only words were:

‘What a selfish thing to do.’ I hadn’t

even considered his feelings as the

grandfather of that child. I wish I’d

told him. I wish he’d told me how

he really felt.

The father of the child was

distraught. His parents were

extremely angry at me. I didn’t get

it. Now I do,” she said.

Years later, Miriam went

through counselling and married

in her late-30s.

“I never thought I wouldn’t have

children.”

After several years of marriage

without being able successfully

conceive, Miriam found out she

was sub-fertile and her husband

had a low sperm count.

Later, she was diagnosed with

cancer in her uterus and tried

to refuse treatment, in the hope

she would still fall pregnant.

Eventually, she said she had no

other choice but to undergo a

hysterectomy.

“I looked into the possibility of

adopting children, but it was too

late for us. Because my husband

is several years older than me, we

were now considered too old to

adopt in New Zealand.”

Miriam hoped when making her

oral submission, that she could tell

the committee she believes it has

a responsibility to make balanced

and well-informed decisions on

behalf of its constituents.

“Especially when the decisions

you make affect the life and death

of human beings like yourself.

We need to start thinking about

the value of the life of each

and every unborn child, the

future they might have, and the

responsibility we have to them

as consenting adults in the first

place,” she said.

chance to speak out

What is the Bill and what

will it mean?

•Currently, abortions are

available in New Zealand

but the procedure sits under

the Crimes Act, a law

which dates back to 1977.

•In order to undergo an

abortion, two certified

medical consultants both

must agree to terminate

the pregnancy on the

grounds that failure to do

so would pose a serious

danger to a woman’s mental

or physical health.

•Currently, about 98 per

cent of abortions are performed

under the mental

health clause.

The new Bill seeks to have

abortion services provided

like other health services

and would remove the

current legal requirements

for authorising an abortion.

The new Bill would allow

a person to refer

themselves to an abortion

service provider, unless

the person was more

than 20 weeks pregnant,

then a health practitioner

would be required to give

authorisation through a

statutory test.

•For the test, the health

practitioner will have to

reasonably believe the

abortion is appropriate

with regard to the pregnant

woman’s physical

and mental health, and

well-being.

The Abortion Supervisory

Committee will be disestablished

under the new

laws.

The new Bill would also

allow 150m safe zones to

be established around

specific abortion facilities

where previously people

have been harassed.

•It will still be illegal for an

unqualified person to try

to perform an abortion,

and causing the death of

an unborn child by harming

a pregnant woman will

remain an offence.

•Medical practitioners who

don’t comply would face

consequences from their

medical bodies, rather

than under the Crimes Act.

The process for practitioners

who conscientiously

object to providing abortion

services will also be

amended.

•Health practitioners

must make it clear when

advising people who

are considering or have

had, an abortion, that

counselling services are

available.

No prosecution

of electrician

• By Sophie Cornish

WORKSAFE WILL not be

Cycling to school not what it used to be

• By Louis Day

IN THE late 1970s, up to 75 per

cent of students were making

their daily commute by bicycle to

some high schools.

However, new statistics from

the city council show few schools

had more than 10 per cent of

students cycling to school last

year.

While the city

council statistics

from 1979 showed

75 per cent of

Burnside High

students cycled to

school, last year

Phil

only seven per cent

were making the

trip by bicycle.

Holstein

Burnside High principal Phil

Holstein said the latest figures are

“sad but not surprising.”

“Looking at the nature of

the school’s location on a very

busy Memorial Ave/Greers

Rd intersection, the volume of

traffic is a significant part of that

[students cycling less]. I don’t

think parents think it is safe to

let their young children bike to

school,” he said.

The schools with more than

60 per cent of students cycling in

the 1970s were Cashmere High

(60 per cent), Christchurch Boys’

High (67 per cent), Christchurch

Girls’ High (64 per cent) and

Papanui High (73 per cent). But

last year, only 13 per cent of

Cashmere High students cycled

to school, while eight per cent of

Papanui High students did.

Out of 15 schools recently

surveyed, Christ’s College

had the highest proportion of

students cycling to school last

year with 34 per cent.

The second highest was CBHS

with 25 per cent. It also had

the second highest increase in

students cycling between 2016

and 2018 with a six per cent rise.

CGHS experienced the highest

rise with a 10 per cent increase to

15 per cent.

City councillor Sara Templeton

felt the increases had a lot to do

with the opening of the Uni-

Cycle route in 2016, which runs

adjacent to CBHS and CGHS.

“It’s the one thing that seems

to be the most different to the

other schools, it’s having a high

amenity cycleway right next

to it. Before I was elected as

a community board member

and a councillor, I was part of a

travel safe planning group at a

local school and we did lots of

surveying and lots of kids wanted

to bike to school and the key

thing that stopped them from

biking was the parents perception

of safety,” she said.

CBHS principal Nic Hill said

it is possible the Uni-Cycle route

has contributed to the rise. But he

also thought the

growth of cycling

as a sport could be

contributing to the

increase.

“Cycling is a

growing sport

here, we are

the national

Nic Hill

champions here

two years in a row. Cycling as a

sport is on a rise nationally and

certainly at Boys’ High.”

However, CBHS and CGHS

are not the only schools located

next to a cycleway. Papanui High

sits next to the Northern Line

Cycleway and experienced a one

per cent decrease in students

cycling to school between 2016

and 2018.

No more a dog’s life for these pooches

• By Sophie Cornish

FOR ALMOST three years

Sapphire waited at a dog shelter

in the hope that someone would

take her home.

Luckily for Sapphire, her

soon-to-be owner was familiar

in dealing with challenging

canines.

Jennifer Hooper’s other dog,

Stark, was adopted into her

family from a chequered, violent

past.

Stark arrived at Christchurch

Bull Breed Rescue after a vet who

was supposed to euthanise him

believed he deserved a better life.

After being rescued from a

gang house during a police raid

in Porirua, Stark was found with

cigarette burns on his body and

severely damaged ears.

Said Mrs Hooper: “We’ve always

had dogs but for better use

of a word, we were reasonably

snobby about it, we had expensive

dogs. We had a bichon frise

and a siberian husky.

“But, never again. When you

see the difference in rescue dogs,

what they bring into your family,

we would only go with rescue dogs

again in the future.”

Mrs Hooper’s latest challenge

was to build a relationship

between Sapphire and Stark,

so Sapphire could be adopted,

almost three years after CBBR

picked her up in 2016, when she

was 11-months-old.

PALS: Jennifer Hooper

with Sapphire (left)

and Stark.

CBBR founder Abbey van der

Plas said little was known about

her life before the shelter.

Said Mrs Hooper: “We got

Sapphire home after a very long

process of training. When I say

training, that’s me being trained

in how to look after her.”

Sapphire’s ‘quirks’ meant Mrs

Hooper visited the shelter weekly

for six weeks to become familiar

with her, with the help of one of

the shelter’s volunteers, Denise

Balloch. Public outings were

also required to get Sapphire

comfortable with being around

strangers.

Then later, Mrs Hooper would

bring Stark along and eventually

they went on ‘doggie dates’ and

had ‘doggie sleepovers.’

“I knew it was a massive commitment

to take on a dog like

that. My work was really flexible

and I was able to go in later, so

I could be at the shelter. I was

at the shelter for about three or

four hours per week. Then later I

began picking Sapphire up also,

two times a week.’’

After five months of this,

Sapphire’s adoption papers were

signed, late last month.

She has been living with her

new family, Mrs Hooper, her

husband and two sons, aged 19

and 21.

“She still sleeps in a crate, for

routine. But whoever is up first

in the morning will let her out

and she will hop into bed with

whoever is still sleeping.

“She’s got a lot of quirks but

she’s settling in really well,’’ Mrs

Hooper said.

A happy ending has come

for a heavily pregnant

dog found wandering the

streets in Papanui.

Lola and her five puppies

were surrendered to the

care of SPCA and now all

but one have now been

adopted.

SPCA senior animal

welfare inspector

Samantha Cairns said Lola

was found wandering the

streets and was so heavily

pregnant, staff were able

to see the puppies moving

inside her.

“She was very obviously

heavily pregnant. We didn’t

want her having babies on

the street.”

Lola’s owner was found,

but it was decided the best

for the dog was for her to

be surrendered to the care

of SPCA.

Now, Lola has been

adopted by an SPCA staff

member.

“Esta is one of our senior

canine animal attendants.

She was working with her

throughout her journey

and fell in love with her and

decided to adopt her,” Miss

Cairns said.

Her five puppies, four

males and one female, all

have Lion King-themed

names.

She had non-life-threatening

Prior to the rescue, two other

to find the fallen climber and

disaster nearly struck again.

“Well, you don’t normally

They were about 100m away.

Governors Bay jetty sold for $1

• By Jess Gibson

THE GOVERNORS Bay Jetty

sold for $1 yesterday.

The historic, 300m wooden

structure has been closed since

2011 after a post-earthquake

inspection found it to be unsafe.

The Governors Bay Jetty

Restoration Trust bought it from

the city council to enact an

agreement and take ownership of

the jetty so it can start its repair

project.

Deputy Mayor and city councillor

Andrew Turner was at the

jetty yesterday to officiate the sale

during a ceremony held at 11am.

Due to the deteriorated state of

the piles, the sub-structure needs

replacing.

The trust will raise the deck

height by 1m to allow for

sea-level rise caused by climate

change.

Over the years, money to

rebuild the jetty has been raised

by the community in many

ways – including music festivals,

calendar sales, art sales and

Christmas gift packs.

The mother had arrived late and

Long wait for

tram shelter

• By Jess Gibson

RESIDENTS ARE frustrated they

will have to wait until the end of

December to use the Moncks Bay

tram shelter.

City council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas said in April the 85-yearold

shelter on Main Rd was likely

to be repaired and re-opened

before the end of September.

However, he now says further

design work on the maintenance

and strengthening of the shelter

is required, which

will then need to

be signed off by the

city council heritage

team.

In January, the

Redcliffs Residents

Christine

Toner

Association was critical

of the progress

made on the shelter

after the city council closed it the

month before due to earthquake

vulnerability.

Now association chairwoman

Christine Toner says she is “very

disappointed” city council staff

did not keep their word to have it

finished by September. She said

the association was not told about

the delay.

“We would like it to be given

priority. It’s a precious piece of

equipment and one of the few

historic treasures we have left on

the waterfront,” Ms Toner said.

TEENAGER Maddie Collins is

recovering after signs of kidney

rejection left her in Starship

Hospital for a week.

The Star has been following

the 15-year-old’s battle with

the kidney disease, nephrotic

syndrome, since 2014.

She underwent her second

kidney transplant in January last

year.

A recent blood

test showed

Maddie’s

creatinine levels

had spiked to 330.

Typically, 60-80

is normal and

Maddie’s normal

is about 170.

Her mother

Sarah Manson-

Collins said the

raised levels started a whirlwind

of scans, needles and tests

which landed them in Starship

Hospital, Auckland.

“We got rushed into

Christchurch Hospital with some

IV fluids hoping that would

resolve it but it didn’t,” Mrs

Manson-Collins said.

“We were then flown to Starship

where she had a kidney biopsy that

showed she had another bout of

rejection.”

Maddie then started a course

of high dose steroids, and

Hospital after a biopsy showed her body was rejecting

her new kidney.

has since responded to the

treatment. She flew back to

Christchurch with her mother

last week.

Mrs Manson-Collins said it

will be another week before they

know if any permanent damage

has been done to Maddie’s

kidney.

“It just shows us how vulnerable

and fragile her health is. When

she’s well, then she’s well, but when

she’s sick, she is really sick.

“As of right now, she is doing

okay. She’s pretty exhausted

from the side effects of such a

high dose steroids.”

In spite of the health scare,

Maddie competed in the

Canterbury Dressage Spring

Series equestrian competition

at McLeans Island on Sunday,

winning the intro ponies

division.

“As a mum, it’s really

delightful to watch her compete

because riding is Maddie’s

lifeline. I know that she’s ready

to tackle anything and can keep

going when she is determined to

ride,” she said.

Maddie was donated a kidney

six years ago by her father Adam

but her body rejected it.

She then received what was

termed a ‘miracle’ second kidney

transplant in January last year

after being told there was only a

two per cent chance of finding a

match in New Zealand.

They were planning a trip to

The John Hopkins Hospital in

Baltimore, United States, to find

one when they were notified an

organ had been found.

However, Maddie ended up

at Starship Hospital in July this

year with signs her new kidney

was failing. She was struggling

with its declining function and

high blood pressure.

A More Open China

Benefits the World

FAMILY: Helena Dinnissen with her children Kees, 9, Evelyn, 4, and Imri, 6.

Goal to become

NZ’s fastest mum

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

HELENA Dinnissen is

living proof becoming a

mother does not mean

having to give up pursuing

a lifelong dream.

After a long battle with

anxiety and depression

throughout her 20s, the

Wigram resident, 35,

decided to start over with

a sport she loved as a

teenager two years ago.

Now Mrs Dinnissen,

a mother of three, has

had her biggest sporting

achievement yet – winning

nine gold medals in the

Oceania Masters Athletics

Championships.

It is the biggest medal

haul in her career with her

winning nine golds.

“It felt pretty crazy

amazing, some events, in

particular, I was genuinely

blown away with my results,

and especially proud

of the records I broke,” Mrs

Dinnissen said.

She won gold for sprints,

jumps and hurdles, 60m,

100m, 200m, 400m, 100m

hurdles, 400m hurdles,

long jump, triple jump and

high jump.

Mrs Dinnissen’s biggest

achievement was high

jump with her clearing

1.71m.

“I’m only 1.68m tall,

and my previous best was

1.55m so this was a huge

improvement and to jump

over my height just blew

me away. I honestly never

thought I could do that”.

Her goal is to now become

‘New Zealand’s fastest

mum’ with her set to compete

in the World Masters

AMBITION:

Helena

Dinnissen is

encouraging

other mothers

to get into

athletics

PHOTOS:

GEOFF SLOAN

Athletics Championships in

Toronto next year.

She is currently training

six days a week for about

one-and-a-half to two

hours each day in the leadup

to the event.

Mrs Dinnissen is training

to compete in the

heptathlon (200m, 800m,

long jump, high jump,

100m hurdles, shot put and

javelin and said she “would

love to win”.

“I hope to medal in all

of them, of course golds

would be amazing,” she

said.

Although she loved

athletics as a teenager,

throughout her 20s, Mrs

Dinnissen struggled with

low self-worth, depression

and anxiety.

“I never knew how to ask

for help, or have the skills

to persevere. It was heartbreaking

to be honest, I

regretted it all my 20s that I

had not pursued a sporting

career,” Mrs Dinnissen said.

She also believed she

could never pursue her

sporting dreams after starting

a family at 25.

But at 32-years-old,

following her third child,

Mrs Dinnissen decided

she wanted to get moving

again.

“I had been doing so

much work on myself mentally

and finally had the

strength to fight. It started

with a jog and has turned

into this”.

Mrs Dinnissen is encouraging

other mothers

to get into athletics.

“I am totally biased, but

yes, there is something for

everyone. I think when you

start competing and get

times it gives you a focus, to

work towards and challenge

yourself rather than exercising

just for the sake of it.”

On top of juggling

training and raising three

children, Mrs Dinnissen

runs a small fundraising

business targeted at preschools,

schools and charities

which turns photos

and artwork into jewellery

and key-chains.

On top of her high sporting

achievements, Mrs

Dinnissen has overcome

serious health issues

including endometrioses,

prolapses discs, a fractured

spine and torn hips.

Mrs Dinnissen will need

$20,000 to cover both

the trip to Toronto and

training leading up to the

event.

The second China International

Import Expo (CIIE) is launched

again in Shanghai this year. The

Import Expo, first of its kind in the

world, was initiated by President

Xi Jinping during the Belt and

Road Forum for International

Cooperation in 2017, sending out a

clear signal of China’s conviction to

open its door wider.

3000 plus enterprises from more

than 170 countries have registered

for CIIE this year, including more

from the Fortune Global 500, and

there are more new products and

technologies to be released.

New Zealand enterprises achieved

great success during the first CIIE

last year. Their transactions with

114 Chinese procurers amounted

to over 590 million US dollars,

100 thousand US dollars of deals

reached for each square metres of

display. Besides giants like Fonterra

and Silver Fern, more New Zealand

enterprises including many SMEs

have registered independently this

year, covering broader areas like

e-commerce, bio pharmaceutical,

aviation and ecological products

besides the traditional primary

industries.

As the world’s largest market with

more than 400 million middleincome

earners, China has become

top trading partner of more than

120 economies including New

Zealand, and is estimated to import

more than 30 trillion US dollars

worth of goods and 10 trillion US

dollars worth of service within the

next 15 years. CIIE has provided

a “fast track” for enterprises

worldwide to explore the vast

Chinese market through directly

interacting with clients and getting

easy access to latest policies and

information.

Hosting the annual CIIE is

another significant step of China

to further open up. We understand

growth is impossible if we close the

door, and neither could we shut the

troubles out. Against the backdrop

of rising protectionism and

unilateralism, China firmly upholds

building an open world economy,

trying to make the “cake” bigger

rather than only seeking a bigger

share for ourselves.

Confucius once pointed out,

“those who want to establish

themselves should begin by helping

others to do so and those who want

to prosper should begin by helping

others to get rich.” China seeks

to align development strategies

with international partners, and

share opportunities of growth with

the rest of the world. Since the

international financial crisis broke

out in 2008, China has contributed

one third of economic growth to

the world for consecutive years.

The global communities are

in the same boat when faced

undergoing profound changes

unseen in a century. The winnertakes-all

mentality will only end

up in intense frictions and blocks

the way of finding constructive

solutions. China is committed to

building a common roof to shed

wind and storm for all, contributing

wisdom and confidence to global

governance and providing more

public goods including the Belt and

Road initiative to promote global

interconnectivity.

China’s rapid development has

helped to strengthen the bilateral

relationship with New Zealand,

bringing tangible benefits to both

peoples. Our bilateral trade volume

has reached the goal of 30 billion

NZ dollars one year ahead of the set

time table, meaning two days’ trade

volume today equals to that of the

whole year in 1972 when the two

countries established diplomatic

ties. This year is the China-New

Zealand Tourism year, and the 400

thousand plus Chinese tourists

visiting New Zealand each year have

given strong boost to local tourism

and retail industries. The bilateral

practical cooperation has also

expanded to new areas like winter

sports as China will host the Winter

Olympics in 2022.

Differences in size of country,

social system and cultural traditions

have never stood in the way of

our bilateral cooperation. Both

countries have regarded the success

of the other as opportunities, and

learnt to seek common grounds

while resolving differences through

friendly consultation. Our two

countries also share consensus

in safeguarding multilateral

trade regimes and a rule-based

international order as well as

promoting global collaboration

on climate change and sustainable

development. A growing and more

open China will be beneficial to

the world and to the development

of our bilateral relations oriented

toward the future.

Spend Saturday

at the Hororata

Highland Games

HORORATA businesses are in

for a huge boost on Saturday.

The annual Hororata Highland

Games sees the area swell by

about 10,000 people.

GAS Hororata owner Margaret

Cross said it is the best day of the

year for businesses.

“It brings people in and helps

to fund us. All in all, it’s just a

great day for tourism in Hororata,”

she said.

The games are put on by the

Hororata Community Trust at

the Hororata Domain.

A new feature this year will be

the Best Dressed Lad and Lassie

competition.

Said event manager Cindy

Driscoll: “We are looking forward

with excitement to see a

range of creative tartan outfits

paraded on the main stage following

the welcome ceremony

to be judged by fashion industry

icons,” she said.

The games chieftain will be

entrepreneur and business owner

Peri Drysdale.

Ms Dysdale founded fashion

company Untouched World,

which produces ecologically

sustainable clothing, and

founded the Untouched World

Foundation, which runs the

leadership for sustainable future

programmes.

Scotland is close to her heart as

her husband was born there and

her son now lives in Edinburgh,

Ms Drysdale said.

The games will also host

the country’s biggest one-day

Highland Dancing competition,

as well as top-level pipe band,

solo pipers and strong men and

women competitions.

The competitions are no doubt

the heart of the games but the

festival surrounding them is what

really elevates the event to the

next level. In amongst the stalls,

food vendors and fairground, you

expect to find at a festival there

are some activities and entertainment

which are inimitable to the

games,” said Mrs Driscoll.

The Hororata Highland

Games will be held on

Saturday at the Hororata

Domain from 9am to

4.30pm. Early bird tickets

are on sale for $20 an

adult and $5 a child until

tomorrow. For m,ore

Industrious students win Young Enterprise Scheme

• By Jess Gibson

CASHMERE High School

students have proven themselves

to be up-and-coming

entrepreneurs.

Josh McKernan, of Woolston,

Lukas Hornell, of Cashmere,

Lyttelton’s Finn McCabe, and

Eddie Hogan, of Mt Pleasant,

came out on top

at the Young

Enterprise

Scheme

regional finals

and awards

with their new

product named

JELF.

Matt Benassi

They teamed

up to create

the ecofriendly

alternative to A4 and A3

laminating pouches.

The group also won the

opportunity to present JELF at

the national finals in Wellington

on December 4. Finn said the

members put their heads together

at the start of the year in a bid to

invent a new product as part of

their business studies project.

He said as they discussed their

ideas, they wrote them down on a

sheet of laminated paper.

However, it ended up being

the laminated paper itself which

sparked their product idea.

The awards were held at Ara,

YOUNG, SUCCESSFUL

& on the move

where the finalists pitched their

ideas in front of a panel of judges

and fought for the title.

There were 132 teams entered

in the competition, which was

narrowed down to six finalists.

Along with the top award, JELF

also won the Powell Fenwick YES

Sustainability.

Finn said the accolades felt

“absolutely amazing.”

“We never expected this at the

start of the year.”

He is moving to Wellington to

study a Bachelor of Commerce at

Victoria University next year, but

said he will continue to focus on

getting JELF off the ground with

his teammates.

“At the moment we haven’t

sold anything, but we’ve started

making pre-sales,” he said.

The group is also looking to

create other products such as

shrink wrap. Another group of

Cashmere High School students

finished second at the awards

with their company Pivot.

OPINION

The coming week

in our history

November 7, 1970 –

Long-haired Christchurch

mountaineers John Glasgow and

Peter Gough became the first

people known to have scaled the

2000m Caroline Face of Aoraki/

Mt Cook. They declared it a

‘triumph for the hippies.’

November 8, 1936 – New

Zealanders Griff Maclaurin

and Steve Yates were part of

the International Column of

anti-fascist volunteers which

marched into Madrid, bolstering

the city’s defences against the

assault of General Francisco

Franco’s rebel armies. Both men

were killed in battle within two

days of arriving.

November 9, 1769 – James

Cook helped his astronomer

Charles Green observe the

transit of Mercury at Te

Whanganui-o-Hei (Mercury

Bay), Coromandel Peninsula.

November 10, 1868 – The

Matawhero ‘massacre’ was

Te Kooti’s utu for his exile

to the Chatham Islands and

subsequent events. In the

middle of the night, around 100

men, 60 on horseback, forded

the Waipāoa River and moved

quietly towards Matawhero. By

dawn, they had killed about 60

people of all ages in the Pākehā

settlement and adjacent Māori

settlements. Most of those who

escaped the slaughter ran to

Tūranganui (Gisborne), 6km

away, while some fled south

towards Māhia.

November 11, 1978 – With

two minutes to play in the test

match against Wales, All Black

lock Andy Haden flung himself

sideways from a lineout in an

attempt to secure a matchwinning

penalty. English referee

Roger Quittenton duly awarded

a penalty to the All Blacks 15m

infield. Brian McKechnie the

goal and New Zealand held on

to win amidst vehement booing.

They went on to become the

first All Black touring team

to achieve the Grand Slam by

defeating all four home unions.

Readers respond to an

Environment Canterbury

and NZ Transport

Agency report which

found almost half of

Canterbury drivers claim

to have better than

average driving abilities

Scotty Wilson – And

about 80 per cent can’t even

keep left unless passing.

Petrina Rooney – I did

the survey and compared to the

amount of other people I see

who don’t stop at stop signs,

don’t indicate or use the correct

lane when turning a corner,

don’t drive to the conditions, I

consider myself above average.

Andrea Lamont – And

half the drivers are still on

learner’s or restricted (licences)

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Jenny: Why won’t you talk to us?

THE PUBLICLY-elected new

chairwoman of Environment

Canterbury has tripped at her

first hurdle – Jenny Hughey is

not doing interviews.

The Star wanted to profile

Hughey in today’s issue in our

regular Our People segment.

Our People is a light and

bright question and answer

interview about who the person

is, their interests and so on. We

do it on the phone or in person.

Hughey – who is on a nice

$180,000 a year salary – was

elected by the public alongside

other councillors as part of

a new look and long overdue

democratic ECan.

But Hughey would only do an

interview if The Star submitted

written questions through

ECan’s communications team.

The communications team

provide information and

answers to the news media from

the various managers and the

chief executive.

It is the same for the city

council, police and other public

sector organisations. Some call

communications teams blocks

or spin doctors.

This way of dealing with

the public via the media often

means a journalist doesn’t get to

Jenny Hughey

put managers and others, who

are in key public sector positions

and answerable to the people, on

the spot. Questions are asked to

be submitted in written form,

– some having these for 10

years. What is with that?

Brenda Te Koeti – Above

average capacity to drive

recklessly.

Benjamin Curtin – And

70 per cent of them are thicker

than cold porridge.

Susan Lightbown – I

think all drivers think they are

From the

editor’s desk

Barry Clarke

vetted by the communications

teams, answered by the

managers, signed off and sent

back to the journalist. To be

fair, communications teams are

useful and helpful.

But back to Hughey. She

wanted our questions to her sent

to the ECan communications

team.

Our People interviews are not

written and answer, they are

verbal interviews, in person or

on the phone.

We also believe publiclyelected

officials like councillors,

whether it be city council

or ECan, shouldn’t be using

communications teams as a

vetting service.

So we didn’t send the

questions to the ECan

communications team.

Here is what we wanted to ask

Hughey:

What will be your priorities

over the next three years and

good drivers, and to be honest,

at times that includes me. Just

human nature.

Carolyn Thompson –

Doubt that very much. Bunch of

red light runners. So dangerous.

Nurses at Christchurch

Hospital say their safety

is under threat because

of a lack of staff car

parks near the building

how will you achieve them?

What expertise do you bring to

the role? What made you want

to run for ECan? Do you think

we are in a climate emergency?

Have you participated in any of

the climate protests? How will

you be addressing the climate

emergency? What are you doing

to reduce your carbon footprint?

Are nitrates in the water supply

a concern of yours? Where did

you grow up? Do you have a

family? What are your hobbies?

The questions were not too

difficult.

But hold the phone. ECan’s

communication team tells us

they will be writing profiles on

Hughey and the other publiclyelected

councillors for its

website for the public to read.

There’s no problem with that

but it seems incredulous that

Hughey, who will lead ECan in

arguably its toughest three years

for some time, doesn’t seem to

have the confidence to talk to a

journalist.

With major issues like water

and air quality, transport and

global warming being a huge

part of our future, side-stepping

talking direct to the news media

will simply not be good enough.

barry@starmedia.kiwi

Annabel Temple-

Furman – I seriously don’t

know what goes on inside the

heads of these well-paid urban

planners. Common sense must

be lacking somewhere because

the wider hospital parking issue

has been going on for the past

47 years. Is it really that difficult?

Any modern, expansive medical

campus requires adequate on

site parking.

Jan Elizabeth – I am

sure there is plenty of land

nearby, thanks to earthquakes,

that could be used for a high

rise parking building. This

should have been a priority

and required before any more

building was consented. I have

often noticed the huge stress

people feel about parking as

opposed to the reason they are

going to the hospital.

HOW MANY people out

there did anything for

Halloween last week?

Last year we didn’t do

anything, but as Vittoria is

a bit bigger now I wanted

to at least try take her

door-to-door in costume.

You know, to get lollies

for me. Got to keep her

health in mind.

I formulated a plan with

my cousin – we would take

her along the other flats

on the property before

heading over to a kids’

Halloween party at the

Phillipstown Community

Hub.

On Wednesday night

Vittoria and I had stayed in

Waikuku Beach. Normally,

I would have spent the

next day out there, taking

Vittoria to the beach or

playground, before heading

home after her noon

nap.

However, this time after

a morning beach walk, I’d

got a real bee in my bonnet

on the idea of getting

her home before her nap.

Why? No idea. To see if I

could, I guess?

Even though I knew I

would be cutting it fine, I

raced about gathering up

our things – forgetting a

bunch in the process – and

rushed out the door with

a pretty lively, smiley toddler.

As we made our way

along State Highway 1,

Vittoria babbled on about

the things going by, sang

along to some songs and

made positive noises that

my flimsy plan was going

to work.

Midway along

Marshland Rd the wheels

fell off (figuratively) when

she yawned, got comfy and

promptly fell asleep.

No toddler ever has had

a normal nap after a 20min

car nap, so by the time my

cousin arrived a few hours

later, Vittoria had had

about enough of the day.

In spite of some whining

and grumping as I got

her costume together, she

graciously let me put the

massively cute pumpkin

petticoat on. She seemed

to get a positivity boost

when she realised the point

of the costume was to go

outside and door-knock

for lollies.

While she was happy,

she was still bone tired

by the time we arrived at

the community hub. She

managed to be excited to

see all the other kids, stare

in amazement at some of

great costumes on display,

listen to some of the classic

VITTORIA

Spooktacular sleepyhead

I WANTED to use what is

my first column of the new

term by paying tribute to

someone who served her

community with a passion

and a commitment anyone

would be proud of, and

that is former councillor

and Deputy Mayor Lesley

Keast, who served her city

for 18 years.

There isn’t enough space

to describe all that she did,

but I did want to honour

her catalyst for entering

public life, which was to

ensure that the voice and

experience of those who

have little power over their

lives was not only heard,

but respected and acted

on.

She was a true

champion for the many

communities that made up

TRICK OR TREAT: The wee pumpkin collecting

lollies along a block of flats.

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

her ward Wigram and then

Riccarton-Wigram when

they merged.

She led the Mayor’s

Welfare Fund as deputy

mayor and was involved

in numerous community

projects including as chair

of the Multi-Sensory

Facility at Pioneer Stadium

for the Southern Centre

Charitable Trust. She also

served as vice-president of

the board of trustees for

Age Concern from 2004 to

2010.

(Ghostbusters of course)

and enjoy some popcorn.

But it didn’t last long.

Less then 10 minutes after

arriving she’d burst into

tears after briefly losing

sight of me,was not at all

interested in joining in any

games and had attempted

to just kind of walk home

twice.

Honestly, nothing is

cuter than a tiny pumpkinperson

boldy just strolling

off. But the hint was

dropped and I decided to

throw in the towel when

she started almost nodding

off in my arms.

I think I’ll avoid any

racing against nap times in

future.

Tribute to Lesley Keast

mayor, after serving for

three terms on the Paparua

County Council and three

terms on the city council,

a former colleague told

her that she had found

the perfect project to

get her teeth into. And

that was the Teahouse at

Riccarton Park, which she

championed and helped

save.

This is where we will

celebrate her life, the day

before the beginning of

Cup and Show Week on

Saturday.

How perfect.

SENIOR LIVING

New solution for a better nights

sleep and improved health!

Deep regenerative sleep is so important to

feeling and performing our best. A lack of or

poor quality sleep is associated with increased

risk for many chronic diseases, including

obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease,

depression, and many more. Unfortunately

many adults report occasional bouts of

insomnia with one in three saying they

suffer from sleeplessness or disturbed sleep

on a more chronic basis, to the point that it

regularly impairs daytime functioning.

The good news is an inexpensive, naturally

occurring amino acid known as glycine has

been clinically researched in Japan and shown

to be highly beneficial in supporting healthy

sleep. Subjects who were given three grams

of glycine one hour before bedtime fell asleep

much sooner, as well as exhibited brainwave

patterns associated with deep sleep compared

to control subjects who did not supplement.

On waking the subjects who took the glycine

woke reporting being refreshed with no

indication that glycine produced a “morning

hangover” or any foggy feeling common

with those who use prescription sleeping

medication.

Glycine is known to accumulate in the

pineal gland and is believed to play and

important role in “disconnecting” the

brain from the body during REM (rapid

eye movement) sleep cycles. Glycine also

supports healthy growth hormone (GH)

secretion that is associated with strength,

good health and vitality whereas low

secretion of GH is associated with advanced

ageing and increased disease.

Other clinical research has shown glycine

supplementation to improve memory and

NEED A BETTER

NIGHTS SLEEP?

Sleep is so important to feeling & performing our best.

Long term poor quality sleep is associated with many

chronic diseases and may even reduce our life span.

New clinical research has found a naturally occurring

amino acid known as glycine may restore a good night’s

sleep. Japanese researchers found patients taking

glycine feel asleep much sooner & exhibited brainwave

patterns associated with deep sleep. On waking the

patients woke refreshed, clear minded & energetic.

attention in young to older adults.

Spanish researchers have studied the effect

of glycine supplementation in 600 subjects

between the ages of four and 85 years

suffering from osteoarthritis, osteoporosis

or physical injuries. Participants were given

five grams of glycine in the morning and five

grams in the evening. In all cases symptoms

significantly improved.

But, with plants growing madly

and temperatures rising, it’s

important to keep up a level of

care. After all, we’ve got to have

the garden looking good for all

those summer visitors.

VEGES TO SOW IN

NOVEMBER – TOMATOES

You may already have tomatoes

that are fruiting but in warmer

areas if you move quickly you

can direct sow another batch of

seeds. In colder areas, with their

shorter growing season, save

time by planting ready-started

seedlings.

FLOWERS TO SOW IN

NOVEMBER – MARIGOLD

Petite yellow marigolds are tough

enough to cope with late summer

heat but they have other desirable

attributes, too. They’re renowned

for their ability to attract insects

into the garden, which means

they help maintain a healthy

balance of the good insects (like

hoverflies). Petite yellow’s small

mounds are easy to place in the

garden, either to form a cheery

border or to mix in with other

plants.

FEED IN NOVEMBER –

LAWNS

November is a good time to

feed the lawn and get it into

shape for Christmas. Try an

organic lawn food based on

chicken manure particles that

fertilise gently over a period. Feed

early in the month. Or use an

inorganic, slow release lawn food

with added wetting agent that will

continue to feed for up to three

months.

PRUNE IN NOVEMBER

Check topiaried and formallyshaped

plants. Any unwanted

growth should be removed as

soon as possible.

NOVEMBER PEST WATCH

Rose black spot is starting to

infest bushes. This dreadful

fungal disease is particularly

troublesome in humid coastal

areas. Remove affected leaves,

drop them into a plastic bag

and pop the whole lot into the

bin. Don’t put the leaves in the

compost bin. If you haven’t

already done so, begin spraying

with a good fungicide that

also contains an insecticide

that controls a range of pests,

including mites.

2-3min. Transfer it to a second

plate and wipe skillet clean.

Return skillet to medium.

Rub chicken with remaining

tablespoon oil, season with 1/2

teaspoon each of salt and pepper,

and cook until browned on all

sides, about 10-12min, then

drain excess fat.

Turn the chicken and add the

wine and cook for 1min, then

add broth and thyme.

Return the apples to the skillet,

transfer skillet to the oven, and

bake until chicken is cooked

through, about 7-8min.

Transfer the chicken and apples

to the plate, discard the thyme,

and return the skillet to medium

heat. Whisk in cream and

mustard, then fold in mushroom

mixture and cook until heated

through, about 2min.

May looking for eighth NZ Cup win

With the country’s biggest

day in harness racing

on Tuesday we continue

our Canterbury sporting

icon series with a man

who has driven his way

to more New Zealand

Trotting Cup wins at

Addington than any other

driver. Sport reporter

Gordon Findlater caught

up with Ricky May

WHEN THE field lines up for

Tuesday’s New Zealand Trotting

Cup, Ricky May will be going for

his eighth win.

However, it’s a four figure

number which has the 61-yearold’s

attention when it comes to

achieving milestones. May currently

has driven more than 2930

winners and hopes to reach 3000

in the next 12 months.

“I thought I could get it this

year actually, but I haven’t really

picked up the right rides lately.

Hopefully they’ll come up,” said

May.

May’s seven cup wins came

aboard Inky Lord (1989), Iraklis

(1997), Mainland Banner (2005),

Monkey King (2009, 2010) and

Terror to Love (2012, 2013). He

says each one came with an immense

feeling of euphoria.

“It’s a fantastic feeling all right.

I don’t get too emotional about it,

but everyone aspires to win a cup

and I’ve been lucky enough to

win seven. Sometimes you can’t

see how you can win it and then

all of a sudden it happens, like

Terror to Love galloping away [in

2013] and coming back. That will

never happen again,” he said.

Although Terror To Love’s remarkable

effort of giving up 30m

to the field in 2013 is arguably

the greatest comeback by a horse

to win the cup, the drive May

rates at the best was his first win

in 1989 with Inky Lord.

“He went amazing. He got

knocked back at the 600, so to

get up and win it was unbelievable,”

he said.

Buried back in the pack, 12

lengths away from pacemaker

Kylie’s Hero, Inky Lord appeared

to lose all chance when Debbie’s

Boy broke ahead of him after

Ruapuna’s speedway season set to begin

• By Allan Batt

BATTLING THE winter

elements has not deterred a small

group of Ruapuna Speedway

members from carrying on with

stadium developments.

New seating has been installed

in the town bend in time for

Saturdays night’s season opener.

Said Christchurch Speedway

Association president Allan

Daly: “Those old concrete bench

seats have served the speedway

well since 1973, but their time

was up. Spectator comfort is important

and the team have done

a brilliant job.

The club has again attracted

interference, and drifted back.

However, the gaps ahead had

opened and Inky Lord produced

one of the most explosive finishes

ever seen in cup history to

blast to the front just 5m from

the finishing post.

May starting driving at 19 and

came from a rich pedigree of

harness racing. His father Terry

May was a trainer and driver,

while his grandfather Clarrie

May also trained and drove -

most notably with Loyal Nurse

when it won the Auckland Cup

in 1946.

May’s first race win in the late

1970s driving his grandmother’s

horse Ruling River at a meet in

Geraldine.

“Dad won the first race with

her and then they let me drive

and I went onto win eight races

with her,” said May.

“I came in at a really tough era

there were so many good drivers

around, so I didn’t get many drives

really. I just battled through and

significant sponsor and marketing

partner support. We are able

to support our competitors and

continue the stadium improvements.

A large section of the

pits has been re-surfaced and

construction is about to start on

an elevated hospitality area.”

Daly said that while economic

conditions are certainly tighter

right now, it was important that

the club continued with its improvement

programme.

“We have cut back on a few

things but while being fiscally

careful, we need to continue with

our confidence that our spectator

growth and sponsorship income

give us. All of that rubs off on

Ricky May

didn’t win a lot of races and never

had a lot of drives.”

At the time May was also helping

train with his father who had

more than a dozen horses at the

time. He says in the early days

of his driving

career

he came

through in

an era which

featured

some of harness

racing

greatest drivers

including

the likes

of Mike De

Filippi, Colin De Filippi, Peter

Jones, Maurice McKendry and

Tony Herlihy. He says the racing

was also more brutal than it is

today with different rules.

“Today you just drive in lines,

back then there was pushing and

shoving all the time. You had to

keep up or you got pushed out,”

said May.

the competitors too, so I’m

really excited about the coming

season.”

The Accessman New Zealand

midget car championship, set for

January 23 and 24 will be the big

show for the summer, with good

interest already being shown by

North Island teams, while local

numbers continue to grow.

“We keep on looking at

rewriting the history books.

Edwin Murray in 1968 was the

last South Island victory in the

midget nationals, and while

I’m not putting too much pressure

on our boys to win, the

performances of Tom Lumsden,

Jeremy Webb and Glen Durie

A race from the early days

which sticks out to May wasn’t

one he won, but involved a

major crash on the back straight

during a junior driver’s race in

Greymouth.

The one in front fell over and

then almost the whole field went

over. I managed to get through

the rails and one of the other

drivers – I can’t think who it

was – came sailing in the air and

landed in my dust sheet right in

front me,” he said.

In total May has won more

than 80 group one races. His

highest winning stakes season

came in 2009/10 with $2,031,564

and his only Drivers Premiership

win came in the 2003/2004

season when he drove 105

winners. The greatest individual

day for May came February 16,

1991 when he drove six winners

at Addington. However, two

titles which have somehow

managed to elude him are the

Inter Dominion and the New

up north last season along with

the return of David Kerr, the

showing of our young guys like

Jay Chadwick and Jack Low, and

the addition of Reon Taylor, a

former national modified sprint

champion, I think our guys are

in a good place.”

The club is also hopeful that

American sprintcar racer Buddy

Kofoid will confirm his return

to Ruapuna in early January. The

teenage sensation captivated the

crowds at his Ruapuna appearances

last summer and he took

out the coveted gold cup last

season.

A new local sprintcar series

kicks off on Saturday night

Zealand Derby.

May admits his driving days

will likely wind down in the

coming years. Outside of racing

he runs an 80ha cropping farm

in Methven.

Surprisingly none of his three

children are involved in racing.

His two sons own and operate a

successful contracting business

called May Brothers Contracting

in Methven, while his daughter is

a physiotherapist at Christchurch

Hospital.

As for Tuesday’s cup, May

believes it’s hard to look past

anything from Mark Purdon’s

All Stars stable which he says

currently holds dominance

unlike anything he’s seen in the

racing industry previously.

“He’s got seven in it and

they’re the first seven favourites

in it. I don’t know what he’s

going to end up racing, even

The Fixer was looking good at

Ashburton, he’s coming back,”

said May.

with the VINZ Summer Slam

scheduled for four rounds. Daly

is upbeat about the competition,

and incentives that the series will

give the drivers, and that it will

put them in a good position for

the Hydraulink war of the wings

series, which will make two visits

to Ruapuna.

“Our sprintcar class has lost

a couple of fairly experienced

drivers, but we have a couple

of new boys too. The Summer

Slam Series can only enhance the

standard of local racing.”

There are also bigger profile

events scheduled for TQs,

modified sprints and sixshooters.

Kiwis should beware of wounded Lions

ONLY FOUR points separated

New Zealand and Great Britain

last weekend and we’re set

for another gripping clash in

Christchurch on Saturday to

conclude the two-test series.

After a heavy loss to Australia,

the Kiwis scored a gritty 12-8

win over the Lions.

The game’s only three tries

came in the second half.

Meanwhile, Great Britain are

winless on their first Southern

Hemisphere tour in 12 years

– having also been beaten by

Tonga – and will be desperate to

get on the board.

For the Kiwis, Shaun Johnson

and Brandon Smith return to

the Kiwis side after missing the

win over Great Britain. Kieran

Foran (shoulder) and Jahrome

Hughes drop out of the 17.

Kenny Bromwich is expecting

the birth of his second child and

is out of the side, with Corey

Harawira-Naera starting in the

pack and Kevin Proctor added to

the bench.

In the Lions camp, Ryan

Hall (knee) is out, while Jack

Hughes joins the side at centre

and Jake Connor moves to the

wing.

•Kick off is 8pm at

Orangetheory Stadium

•Key match-up

Dynamic fullbacks Roger

Tuivasa-Sheck and Jonny Lomax

led the way for their nations

in the first test. Tuivasa-Sheck

contributed a match-high 234m,

a line break and a try assist to

propel New Zealand home.

Meanwhile, Super League star

Lomax topped the metres chart

for Great Britain (196m) and had

a line break assist. A moment of

magic from either No 1 could be

the difference.

•For New Zealand to win

The Kiwis improved on their

effort against Australia but they’ll

be focused on cutting down the

errors, having made 10 to Great

Britain’s six last start. It will also

be integral for the returning

Shaun Johnson to gain some

early confidence, especially with

his kicking game. If he’s on-song,

the Kiwis will be hard to stop.

PREPARATION: Jamayne Isaako runs through some plays

during the Kiwis training session at Nga Puna Wai on

Tuesday.

•For Great Britain to win

Last week’s completion rate

of 87 per cent is impressive on

paper but the Lions might be

better served throwing caution

to the wind against the Kiwis.

Great Britain have no shortage

of attacking talent, so scoring

just two tries in two matches

on tour suggests they’ve been

conservative. Wayne Bennett’s

troops produced eight off-loads

compared to New Zealand’s 13

in the opening match and more

second-phase play could be

what’s needed to break up the

black wall.

•Key stats

Great Britain back-rower

John Bateman has been tireless

across two 80min performances,

making a combined 78 tackles

and 296m. Kodi Nikorima was

enormous for New Zealand on

his return last Saturday, making

53 tackles at hooker after being

brought into the starting side for

Brandon Smith.

High comfort levels in Honda CRV

CARS ARE always a great

conversation starter.

The other day a former

work colleague came into the

office meeting up with old

acquaintances. We had a bit of a

chat and he asked me what I had

driven lately, I responded, and

then asked what he was driving.

He answered by saying he was in

a company-supplied sport utility

vehicle but was anxious that it

would be replaced soon with a

sedan. He said he liked the SUV

and felt that a traditional sedan

wouldn’t measure up – literally.

That’s part of the reason why

the SUV market is so buoyant,

they are practical, functional and

mostly car-like to drive, it’s easy

to become attached to that type of

transport.

One of the models that kickstarted

the SUV revolution was

Honda’s CRV, that was around

1996, and since then it has gone

through several life-cycles and

facelifts. The CRV has just been

upgraded and there is now the

choice of a seven-seat version

which will excite the traditional

CRV buyer who has occasionally

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

craved for extra seats.

The CRV lands here in several

variations – starting at $33,990 and

ending at $48,990. Interestingly,

the five-seat S model, as evaluated,

gets a 2-litre, single-camshaft,

naturally-aspirated engine, and

while that’s not unusual in an

SUV, what is surprising is that

it is the only model in the range

that doesn’t get Honda’s new

turbocharged 1.5-litre engine that

has gained quite a reputation in

this part of the market.

As opposed to the four-wheeldrive

system of its stablemates,

the entry-level model is also

front-drive only, yet that would

suit me, I’m not big on off-theseal

travel, and if you treat it with

respect it will provide most of

the fundamentals mid-size SUV

buyers are looking for.

As you would expect from the

Honda manufacturing process, the

CRV is clinical in terms of interior

design, comfort and function. The

trim elements are high grade and

the specification level is high.

The CRV S is rated at 113kW

and 189Nm. Honda also claims

a 7.6-litre per 100km (37mpg)

HONDA CRV: Several engine and driveline options.

combined cycle fuel usage rating.

That’s a healthy target and is

indicative of the Honda goal of

reducing fuel use. I saw that as

a benchmark during my time

with the test car, and instead of

exploring power I concentrated

on trying to meet that average fuel

use figure. I couldn’t, but I did get

close at 8.2l/100km (35mpg) with

a 6l/100km (47mpg) figure sitting

at 100km/h.

The engine is turning over at just

1800rpm at that speed, which isn’t

working hard, and that contributes

to the thrifty way in which it

operates.

Drive is channelled through a

continuously variable automatic

transmission. It allows the engine

to work at the area of maximum

efficiency, it draws on as much

torque as it can so that the engine

isn’t loaded unnecessarily.

Of course, there are drive modes

which the driver can choose for

each given journey. The default

mode is normal, but eco and sport

modes can be selected at will.

As mentioned, I didn’t explore

sport mode other than a short

highway burst, and it will stimulate

the engine so that it feels peaky

and responsive. The opposite

applies in eco mode, the throttle is

numb and dull; however, if you are

prepared for that, fuel savings in

that mode are generous.

I took the test car west, cruising

the long straight roads between

Coalgate and Dunsandel, the

CRV feels lithe yet involving

from behind the wheel. In S

specification it rides on 235/65

x 17in Good Year tyres and they

help contribute to the strong

• Performance –

• Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

steering feel and accurate corner

turn-in.

The CRV sits high at almost

1.7m so there is a bit of

gravitational movement over the

suspension, but as a by-product

of having a four-wheel-drive

option, even the front-drive CRV

gets a fully independent set-up

underneath, and that has both ride

and handling benefits. Comfort

levels are extraordinarily high,

the suspension willingly absorbs

bumps and ruts, just floating over

uneven surfaces. This is one aspect

that the CRV excels in, it simply

has a magical ride.

Honda has had to work hard

to keep the CRV a desirable

purchase. There’s so much

competition in the mid-size SUV

market, but I’m pleased to report

that it is still a front-runner and

will constantly please those who

relate to all that it represents.

ADVICE

for maintaining

your home

As most New Zealanders’ homes are their

biggest investments it’s important to protect

them. Good maintenance will:

• Keep your home safe and secure

• Keep you and your family healthy

• Save you money by allowing you to fix

problems before they get bigger

• Protect your financial investment

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO

APPROACH MAINTENANCE?

Carry out regular preventative maintenance

to prevent some problems from occurring.

MAINTAINING YOUR HOME

Plan ahead for major maintenance tasks.

Be prepared for emergencies – know where

and how the water, gas and power supplies

turn off.

DIY OR PROFESSIONAL?

You need to be realistic about your limits. It is

Oamaru

NEW LISTINGS

better to hire a tradesperson and get the job

done properly than to make costly mistakes.

By law, some jobs need to be done by

a professional, such as gas, plumbing,

drainage and some electrical work. Major

maintenance matters.

MOISTURE

Damp homes are unhealthy and harder to

heat. Combat persistent damp in your home

by:

• Insulating (under the floor, in the ceiling

and walls).

• Ventilating (including extractor fans in

bathrooms and kitchens, opening

windows, using a dehumidifier or

forced ventilation system and

keeping vents clear).

• Heating (aim to keep the indoor

temperature at a minimum of 16C).

• Replacing unflued gas heaters with

electric or flued gas heaters.

Fully insulated and double glazed for warmth.
