Ed is back

in the

boat after

cancer

scare

• By Jacob Page

SIX MONTHS ago, Ed Lopas’

promising rowing career looked

potentially sunk.

The 16-year-old was diagnosed

with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a form

of blood cancer, in July last year

which came as a shock.

“I just thought I was a little sick,”

Ed said. “I wasn’t expecting it to be

as serious as it was.”

After five months of successful

chemotherapy, Ed was cleared

to start physical activity again

and late last week he joined his

Christchurch Boys’ High School

teammates at a rowing camp at

Lake Hayes in Central Otago

to prepare for a busy season

ahead.

The big goal is representing his

school at the national Maadi Cup

regatta at Lake Ruataniwha, in

Twizel, in March.

“I’d lost a lot of muscle over that

time but to be this close to racing is

a great feeling.’’

The rowing team will try to

break a world record in Ed’s name

early next month to show their

support.

Skate park rejuvenation

plan open for feedback

DESIGNS: Rich Landscapes has created a concept plan for the St Albans site that includes

several beginner street-style features. ​

SKATERS AND residents can get

on board with the rejuvenation of

St Albans skate park.

A proposed plan for the area,

which aims to accommodate

beginners while continuing to

cater to the more experienced

skaters, is open for feedback until

February 17.

People can share their views

in person with city council staff

at the St Albans Skate Jam on

Saturday from noon to 3pm or

submit comments online.

City council head of parks Andrew

Rutledge said the proposed

design opens up the skate park

to a greater range of skill levels –

and users.

“We want to ensure that the

St Albans skate park is a place

for everyone – a true hub for

the local skate community,” Mr

Rutledge said.

“The proposed extension

enhances the park, providing improved

facilities for urban sport

enthusiasts that complement the

revitalisation of the wider area.

“By making these changes, the

skate area can be transformed

into an accessible all-ages facility

that still remains an actionpacked

site.”

Rich Landscapes, a business

which specialises in skate park

design, has created a concept

plan for the St Albans site that

includes several beginner streetstyle

features.

The proposed new area features

roll over bumps, a quarter

pipe with a deck and a small

200-millimetre platform ramp

for those skaters starting out in

the sport.

The plan will also appeal to

experienced riders, with the addition

of a hipped end off the quarter

pipe and an extended rollover

finger to the two mini ramps.

Under the proposed changes,

the skate area will almost double

– expanding from 350 sq m to

nearly 700 sq m.

Among the proposed changes

are the double rollover bumps,

new balustrades, the steel and

concrete-edged platform ramp,

an umbrella shade sail and timber

seating.

The new design delivers a

smooth transition between the

present flow features and the

street-style extension.

Any feedback will help inform

a final decision on the proposed

plan by the Papanui-Innes Community

Board.

Bin checks

to improve

recycling

THIS WEEK a city council

team will begin spot checking

the contents of yellow wheelie

bins, in a bid to improve people’s

understanding of what can be put

out for recycling.

Up to 7500 bins across Christchurch

and Banks Peninsula will be

visually inspected each week by the

four-strong team, who will work

in pairs checking the contents of

recycling bins put out for kerbside

collection.

“The team will be lifting the

lids of the yellow wheelie bins and

having a quick look to check the

quality of the recycling,’’ says city

council solid waste manager Ross

Trotter.

“A gold sticker will be placed

on bins that have the right stuff in

them. Where the team finds incorrect

items in the bin, they will leave

educational information in the

property’s mailbox which includes

tips for recycling correctly.

“If they find a bin that is heavily

contaminated with non-recyclable

materials, then that bin will tagged

for contamination and removed

from the collection round for the

day, with educational information

provided so that residents

understand why it has not been

emptied,’’ Mr Trotter said.

Plan for bus to take home

Saturday night revellers

• By Jess Gibson

A NEW BUS service is being

planned to get party-goers home

from the central city along Ferry

Rd to Sumner.

Bentley Transport and Christchurch

Shuttles and Tours are looking

to start a six-month

trial, running a service

which will be called the

Midnight Express.

It would leave from

Victoria St, near Carlton

Bar and Eatery, at 1.15am,

2.15am and 3.15am on

Sundays, stopping at

popular nightspots such as

Hereford St before heading

to Sumner.

The fare, which will cost up to

$10, would follow the same route

as Metro’s Purple Line and drop

people along the way.

Midnight Express Sumner

service co-ordinator Roe van der

Merwe said the bus would go off

route, within reason, once it gets

to the area to drop people closer to

their door.

Mr van der Merwe said the

companies are hoping to get

approval to run the trial from

Environment Canterbury and the

city council in the next few weeks.

“There is potentially the need

for a cheaper service. If people are

travelling in a group, it’s easier

than having to get two taxis as the

cost would double. It’s also not

something you have to book, it’s a

scheduled service.”

Bentley Transport has two other

Midnight Express lines running

from the central city to

Rolleston and Rangiora

which Mr van der Merwe

said have seen a “really

good response.”

He said the decision

to run the bus out to

Sumner was based on the

population of the area

and because a similar

service was provided to

the area prior to the earthquakes.

Sumner resident Jess Wright, 21,

said she would definitely use the

bus if it became an option.

Miss Wright would usually pay

between $40 and $50 for an Uber

or up to $80 for a taxi to get home

after a Saturday night out.

“I think the bus is such a good

idea,” she said.

Sumner Community Residents’

Association co-ordinator Charlie

Hudson said she loves the idea of

having another form of connectivity

with the city.

“At this point, no concerns

spring to mind.”

Rowing with Ed more than a record attempt

GOOD CAUSE: Christchurch Boys’ High School rowing captain Harry Woelders on the erg which will be used during the world

record attempt. Right – The Lopas family (clockwise from left) – Angus, Tessa, Anna, Jack, Ben and Ed.

•From page 1

The 63-strong squad will attempt

to beat the record for a continuous

erg, more commonly known as an

indoor rowing machine, by boys

aged under-19.

The world record attempt named

Rowing with Ed will start on February

5 at CBHS at 3pm and will

go through to the weekend.

The current record stands at 96

hours, with the team hoping to

exceed more than 140 with each

member of the squad rowing for

an average two hours.

The team is hoping to raise at

least $5000 for Leukaemia and

Blood Cancer New Zealand.

“It means a lot for everyone to

show their support for me like

this,” Ed said. “I just wanted to get

back into sport, that’s what kept me

going.”

Team manager Ricardo De

Sousa said it was a good way to

bond the team and give to a cause

which has directly affected them.

“It’s a way for us to bond as a

squad but also show our support

for Ed and what he has been going

through.”

Ed will take part in the world

record attempt during a school

assembly where he will be cheered

on by 1300 other Christchurch

Boys’ High School students.

De Sousa said the squad was up

for the challenge.

“I think all the boys want to be

heroes at this point,” he said.

“They don’t care what shift

they have to do even if it is in the

middle of the night.

“We know it will be a challenge

to keep going for such a long time

but we also know it’s nothing

compared to what Ed has been

going through.”

Foul odour

solution for

Ferrymead

• By Jess Gibson

AN ODOUR treatment unit will

be installed in Ferrymead to rid a

foul and corrosive smell generated

by sewer systems.

Work to install the unit near

Settlers Cres and Heathcote

Towpath has started and is

expected to finish by the end of

February.

City council head of three waters

and waste Helen Beaumont said

installing a well-designed and

operated filter will treat offensive

odours and extend the asset lives of

the infrastructure.

Ms Beaumont said the city council

has not received any complaints

from residents or businesses and

the decision to install the unit was

made after staff identified the smell.

Environment Canterbury has

received seven complaints from

Ferrymead residents relating to

odour in the area since July 2017.

However, a spokesperson could

not confirm whether it was coming

from the wastewater system as

none of the complaints provided

evidence.

“It is possible that in some

cases the odour was from another

source, for example, the landfill in

Bromley which is nearby.”

Fountain

installed

at pool

A NEW water toy has been

installed at Pioneer Recreation

and Sports Centre’s leisure pool.

The toy, which has replaced a

slide removed earlier this year

for safety reasons, is a cylinder

shape – standing 1.68cm high. It

shoots water up into the air like

a sprinkler.

Centres operations manager

Ben Rzoska said facility users

have embraced the fountain.

“It’s a great replacement for

the slide, which needed to be

removed because of stagnant

water that was pooling under it.

Kids are back in the leisure pool,

splashing about and having fun

under the water spray, he said.

“We want to say a big thanks

to the community for their patience

while the installation was

carried out.”

Pioneer closed for a week in

early December to allow for the

toy to be installed. During the

closure period, the pool was also

drained and tiles replaced. Time

was needed for the grout to dry

and the pool to be re-filled and

heated.

Stormwater discharge to be improved

Helen

Beaumont

AN environmentally-friendly

approach to managing how and

when stormwater is discharged

into Christchurch and Banks

Peninsula’s waterways has been

finalised.

Work is also

under way in the

Cashmere and

Worsleys valleys

to create storage

basins that will

reduce the flood

risk to properties

around

the lower and

middle sections

of the Heathcote River.

The basins will be contoured

to allow as much sediment as

possible to settle out prior to

water leaving the valley. This will

improve water quality in Cashmere

and the Heathcote River.

Similar stormwater management

systems are being installed in the

Avon and Styx river catchments.

The Environment Court has

approved a settlement of the city

council’s appeal against some

conditions in the Comprehensive

Stormwater Network Discharge

Consent that was granted by independent

hearing commissioners

appointed by Environment

Canterbury in June.

“The settlement of this appeal

represents a major milestone in

the management of stormwater

in Christchurch and means

all stormwater discharges will

now be managed under a single

consent,’’ said city council head

of three waters and waste Helen

Beaumont.

“This means there will be clear

standards across the network for

the management of stormwater,

which should result in a better

environmental outcome,’’ she

said.

Environment Canterbury’s

chief operating officer Nadeine

Dommisse said: “The consent

supports the collaborative

Canterbury Water Management

Strategy approach between

councils, Ngāi Tahu and the

community to improve outcomes

for water in Canterbury,

and a similar approach is being

taken for other stormwater

network discharges throughout

Canterbury.”

Said Ms Beaumont: “We are

investing millions of dollars into

improving our management of

stormwater so that we improve

the quality of the water entering

the waterways and reduce the

risk of flooding.

“In Wigram, for example, we

have lowered a large area of the

Canterbury Agricultural Park to

create a flood storage basin with

four hectares of wetland. In a

one-in-100-year storm event, the

basin will be able to store around

FLOODED:

The approach

to managing

stormwater

discharge in

Christchurch

and Banks

Peninsula will

be improved. ​

590 million litres of water – the

equivalent of 236 Olympic-sized

swimming pools – which means

there’s less risk of properties

flooding along the upper reaches

of the Ōpāwaho/Heathcote River.

“The new wetland area provides

a habitat for a number

of threatened species and will

also help to clean the water as it

leaves the basin and flows into

the Heathcote,’’ she said.

Stormwater – any rainwater

that falls on roads, paths and

other hard surfaces – picks up

pollution and flows via drains

into waterways. If the discharge

is contaminated, this affects the

health and water quality of local

streams and rivers.

Swainson rolls

with the punches

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

WOOLSTON BOXER Trevor

Swainson has all the motivation

he needs heading into 2020.

After two consecutive silver

medals at the national championships,

the 26-year-old is keen

to ensure the third time will be

the charm.

Late last year, Swainson

was named on the long list of

potential athletes for the Tokyo

Olympic Games in July and

August this year.

Swainson admits his Olympic

goal is still a long-shot but being

put on the list and his desire to

win a national title had motivated

him to keep training hard

during the holiday period.

“The training for me is fun,

I enjoy it,” the under-81kg elite

boxer said.

“It makes me a better boxer.

Whether I’m training by myself

in the gym or looking at You-

Tube videos on how to improve

my technique, then it is all positive

for me.

“Knowing I was that close

to the Olympics kept the fire

burning for me,” he said. “That’s

a once in a lifetime type of

achievement.”

Swainson first started boxing

CHALLENGES: Trevor Swainson hopes to earn his first

national title in 2020.

when he was 12-years-old but

returned to the sport competitively

eight years ago.

“I’ve always enjoyed the sport

and competing but I always

want to get better,” he said.

“I do think about winning a

national title a lot and that’s a

big goal for me this year.

“Hopefully I will have the opportunity

to fight overseas more

and represent my country.”

He said the Olympic dream

could still be burning in four

years time.

“I’ll only be 30 so if I’m still in

good shape and active then you

never know.”

Woolston coach Holly

Sullivan praised Swainson’s

work ethic as an example the

younger boxers could look up

to if they wanted to reach the

same level of success in the

sport as they earned more

experience.

Tasty Bites

Cooking rice properly is a no grainer

By Ian Knott

Rice has the ability to

transform a relatively

simple dinner into a

stunning feast. It’s readily

available, inexpensive,

filling, and the perfect

blank slate for the base

of many classic dishes

A rice cooker is great if you

cook rice regularly and if you’ve

got ample storage space. The

microwave is an option, too –

there are many pre-packaged

options for those who are short

on time and can afford the

premium price of convenience.

But you needn’t splash out on

any special gadgets or ingredients

to serve up a pot of beautifully

tender, and fluffy rice. The

stove-top method is not as hard

as you might think – as long as

you remember a couple of simple

rules.

Not all rice is equal and should

be treated differently if you

want to get the best out if your

preferred grain.

Below, I’ll detail how to cook

the perfect pot of white longgrain,

brown, and aromatic

(basmati or jasmine) rice.

All the methods use one cup of

uncooked rice, which will make

three cups when cooked.

White long-grain rice

Step 1: Rinse, rinse, rinse.

Step one is always the same.

Unless you want a pot of lumpy

wallpaper paste, you must rinse

the starch off your rice.

STAPLE: Rice is easy to

cook, but also easy to get

wrong. Make sure you

rinse your rice well to

avoid it going gluggy.

Put the uncooked rice in a finemesh

strainer and run it under

the cold tap until the water runs

clear.

Step 2: Bring 1½ cups of water

to the boil in a small saucepan

with a lid, over a high heat.

Step 3: Add the rice and some

salt. If you’re feeling indulgent,

you can also add a tablespoon

of butter at this point. It will add

a layer of richness, but is purely

optional.

Step 4: Cover and reduce the

heat to low. Cook for 18-20min

until the water is absorbed.

Important: Don’t lift the lid to

peek, and absolutely don’t stir the

rice during the absorption stage.

This will break down the grains

and release more starch, leaving

you with a gluggy pot of white

couscous.

Step 5: Remove from the heat

and let it stand, covered for

10min. The steam will finish off

the cooking process. Uncover and

fluff your perfect rice with a fork

before serving.

Brown rice

Step 1: Repeat after me: rinse,

rinse, rinse.

Step 2: In a covered medium

saucepan bring eight cups of

water to the boil.

Step 3: Add the rice and boil,

uncovered, for 30-35min until

the rice is tender but just a little

chewy.

Step 4: Drain the rice in a

strainer and return it to the

saucepan. Cover and let it steam

(off the element) for a further

10min.

Step 5: Add salt to taste and

butter (if you wish). Fluff with a

fork and serve.

Aromatic rice

Step 1: All together now . . .

rinse, rinse, rinse!

Step 2: Boil the kettle/jug.

You’ll need two cups of boiling

water for basmati rice or 1½ cups

for jasmine rice.

Step 3: In a small saucepan,

heat some butter and/or oil until

it’s just starting to shimmer. Add

the uncooked, rinsed rice and

some salt to the pan and stir

until the water from rinsing has

evaporated and the rice is coated

in the butter/oil.

Continue to saute, stirring

constantly (you don’t want it to

stick and burn), until a starchy

film forms on the bottom of the

pan – about 2min. Your rice

should have a slightly toasty

aroma at this point.

Step 4: Carefully add the

boiling water and reduce the heat

to low. Cover the saucepan and

cook until the water is completely

absorbed – about 18min.

Step 5: Take the pan off the

heat and let it steam, covered for

a further 10min. Fluff with a fork

and serve.

Who we are

Allied Press Limited employs over 450 people on a permanent

basis across its 15 sites in the South Island. We operate across

multiple media platforms (print, online, digital) delivering news,

information and entertainment through our various regional

and city publications, including printing and publishing of

newspapers from our print centre in Dunedin and a commercial

print facility in Alexandra.

The role

Reporting to the Operations Manager, the main purpose of

the position is to ensure smooth running of our newspaper,

commercial publication and facility maintenance.

Some of the key accountabilities include:

• Production remains uninterrupted.

• Production equipment availability is maximised.

• Preventative maintenance is prioritised to ensure minimal

downtime.

The business has just invested in a major upgrade to the

electrical/electronic systems on the printing press, scheduled to

commence in the New Year. This presents the ideal opportunity

to learn from the installation and commissioning engineers to

enable the successful candidate to hit the ground running.

Your skills and experience

We are looking for a registered Electrician ideally from an

Industrial background holding a current practising licence. The

ideal candidate would be competent and confident in using

computers and experienced in PLC’s, Analogue/Digital control

and AC/DC motor drive systems. Although not essential,

knowledge of Goss Press and Ferag mailroom will be a bonus.

Further details

This is a full-time permanent position working the day shift from

Monday to Friday, with rostered ‘On call’.

As well as a competitive salary, we offer you a great team

environment, minimal commute time, being based within

Dunedin city, professional development opportunities, job

security and opportunity to grow. Training and support will be

provided for the successful applicant.

If you think this role is for you, please apply by way of CV and

a covering letter. Informal inquiries about the role are welcome

and should be directed to raja.chakrabarti@alliedpress.co.nz

A copy of the position description can be requested from HR

at recruitment@alliedpress.co.nz

Applications will close on Thursday 13 February 2020.
