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 from Little River

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.

Clock

tower

delayed

again

• By Jess Gibson

THE OPENING of the

Scarborough Clock Tower has

been delayed again.

Repairs to the historic structure

will now be

finished by the

third week of

March.

Restoration

work was

meant to be

completed in

January but

Darrell

was delayed

until February

after contrac-

Latham

tors found the concrete was in

worse condition than initial

investigations suggested.

Now, further complications

have lead to more delays.

The landmark along the esplanade,

which dates back to the

1930s, has been fenced since early

last year.

It suffered structural damage

during the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

THERE’S A tremendous story on the front

page today about Ed Lopas’ health battle.

The 16-year-old, who hails from Little

River, is a very promising sportsman.

But when he was struck down with

Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a form of blood

cancer in July last year, the world for Ed and his family was

turned upside down.

Ed is a fighter and fit as a buck rabbit which no doubt

helped him in his recovery. He went through five months of

chemotherapy and is now back rowing.

Ed was training at a camp at Lake Hayes in Central Otago

last week.

His goal is to represent his school at the Maadi Cup regatta in

March.

Ed’s determination will get him there.

Funds nearly found for boat shed

• By Jess Gibson

THE REBUILD of a historic

boat shed in Moncks Bay has

now been stalled for eight

months.

But Christchurch Yacht Club

member and

project manager

Frank Coppens

says the end is

still in sight.

Construction

Pat

McIntosh

of the club’s deck

at the site on

Main Rd finished

in May using $1.174 million

which came from the city council,

Coastal Pathway Project and

from grants the club raised itself.

Since then, members have

been busy with further fundraising

to place a boatshed building

on the deck.

Mr Coppens would not

disclose how much money was

needed to complete the project

as it still needs to go out for

tender, making it “commercially

sensitive.”

However, he said the club

has nearly reached its goal and

is hoping to have the building

finished before the 2020/2021

boating season, which starts in

October.

He said the club has previously

gone to organisations such

as Lotto, The Lion Foundation,

Rata Foundation and Canterbury

Community Trust for

grants.

“Those organisations have

been very generous and supportive.

“There are challenges around

health and safety because we

have to have handrails and all

that sort of thing installed.

That will be a part of the shed

build.”

The deck is 41m x 13.5m and

the boat shed will be 21m x 9m.

Once the project is completed,

the shed would be used by the

club, while the public could use

“It is an ongoing project and we

are very keen to get the shed finished

so we can actually use it.”

Meanwhile, Redcliffs Residents

Association secretary Pat

McIntosh said the deck has been

a “nuisance” while it is fenced

off as it has been narrowing the

footpath.

“It’s awkward for people to get

around.”

The original boat shed was

demolished in June 2011 after it

was damaged in the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

A LARGE crowd gathered to

celebrate Margaret Jefferies at an

open funeral on Saturday.

The Lyttelton identity, who was

a mother of five, died from breast

cancer on January 13, aged 75.

Ms Jefferies became a member

of the New Zealand Order of

the community.

She was the chairwoman of

Project Lyttelton, a non-profit,

grass-roots organisation dedicated

to building a healthy community

with strong values.

During her 15 years as a

volunteer, she was involved in

projects like waste reduction,

a community-grown dinner,

school and community gardens,

dual-purpose welcome and

reusable shopping bags for new

residents.

In 2005, Ms Jefferies founded

the Lyttelton Harbour Time-

Majority of views in favour of

controversial Collett’s Corner

• By Jess Gibson

A RESOURCE consent

application for Lyttelton’s

Collett’s Corner has attracted

the views of 167 groups and

individuals.

The bulk of submissions

recieved by the city council

during public consultation for

the residential and commercial

development planned for Oxford

St were behind the project.

However while 133 voiced their

support, 31 opposed the application

and three were neutral.

Ohu Development, the group

behind the project, was the first

in New Zealand to run a crowdfunding

campaign to help pay

for a commercial development.

Lyttelton resident Greer

Swindard was in support, and

said: “I live close to the development

and really want to see this

succeed as I believe it will be

great for the town and Whakaraupo

as a whole.”

Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson

was also in favour.

“This is an uplifting design

which will be a positive statement

on entering Lyttelton

from Sumner Rd and contribute

greatly to the life in Lyttelton,”

said Ms Dyson’s submission.

Some reasons submitters

FEEDBACK: Some of the reasons people were opposed to

Lyttelton’s Collett’s Corner were related to the building’s

height, site coverage, limited parking and designs. ​

gave for opposing the application

included the height of the

complex, site coverage, limited

parking and the building not

fitting in with the character of

Lyttelton.

There were a number of comments

objecting to the application

relating to the alteration of

initial designs, including from

Lyttelton Community Association

chairman Ken Maynard.

Mr Maynard made a submission

on behalf of its members

opposing the application.

“The original emphasis was

totally on a community facility

with some accommodation.

The current one is for a block of

flats with a private roof-garden,

effectively creating a vertical

gated community, which is the

antithesis of community and not

wanted in Lyttelton,” said the

submission.

City council head of resource

consenting John Higgins said

staff will now prepare a report

which will be presented at a

submission hearing, which is

ballparked for February.

“There will also be an evidence

exchange of experts closer to the

hearing date.”

NICE DREAM:

Ice Cream Charlie

employee Lenny Lennard set

up on the esplanade.

Ice Cream Charlie

expands into Sumner

• By Louis Day

AN ICONIC ice cream brand is

now being sold in Sumner.

The more than 100-year-old

business Ice Cream Charlie was

sold before Christmas and its new

owners say it is in expansion mode.

Ice Cream Charlie, also known

as Vanilla Ices, which operates

out of Victoria Square, now has

stands at the weekends in Sumner

as well as the Christchurch Farmers’

Market at Riccarton Bush.

New general manager Tim

McIsaac, who is a part owner of

the business with his family, said

they were looking at other locations

in New Zealand.

“We are hoping to move it past

being a Christchurch brand and

we hope the rest of New Zealand

will love it as much as people do

here,” he said.

“How that looks and how we

implement that is what we are

still working on.”

Mr McIsaac owns and operates

a finance company in Sydney. His

family runs a farm in the Bay of

Plenty.

They bought the business

before Christmas and have increased

the number of employees

from three to nine, which will

soon increase to 11.

The stands in Sumner and the

farmers’ market, are effectivelty

freezers on bikes, said Mr

McIsaac. They have been named

Agatha and Betty, with the plan

to work their way through the

alphabet in naming all their new

stands after women’s names from

yesteryear.

GOOD CAUSE: Christchurch Boys’ High School rowing captain Harry Woelders

on the erg which will be used during the world record attempt.

Rowing with Ed

more than just a

world record attempt

•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.

SUPPORT: The

Lopas family

(clockwise

from left) –

Angus, Tessa,

Anna, Jack,

Ben and Ed.

“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.”

About 2000 people turned out

to enjoy crafts, food, plants, animals

and to compete in a range of

events at Awa-iti domain.

The show is the highlight of

the year for many local farmers,

growers and producers.

It gives them the chance to showcase

what Banks Peninsula has to

offer to the community, as well as

the hundreds who attendfrom the

rest of Canterbury and beyond.

Banks Peninsula A&P Association

Sheryl Stanbury said the show ran

smoothly.

“The weather was fantastic, it

was good for the animals and

Award honours farmer’s long service

• By David Hill

BANKS PENINSULA

farmer Paul de Latour

was surprised to receive

the Duvauchelle A&P

Show’s highest honour.

The show stalwart

received the Banks

Peninsula Recognition

Award at the 151st

Paul de Latour

annual show at the Duvauchelle

Showgrounds

in the Akaroa Harbour

area on January 11.

‘‘It was a surprise. I

thought when [show

president] Tania [Kiely]

rang me she was

ringing to talk about

doing the announcing,’’

he said.

Mr de Latour and his wife

Frances were once again at the

show, in the announcer’s box

where they have served for more

than a decade.

Over the years Mr de Latour

has been an exhibitor, volunteer,

committee member, show president

in 1981 and then supervising

marshal in the jumping ring

for 21 years until 2005.

The de Latours farmed 1115ha

at Lavericks Bay on Banks Peninsula,

farming up to 4500 sheep

and 950 head of cattle.

On February 22, 2011, the day

of the Christchurch earthquake,

the de Latours downsized, moving

to the 148ha Lynhurst farm

at Okains Bay, where they breed

200 Angus and Angus-cross

cattle.

The couple’s daughter and

son-in-law, Harriet and Lloyd

Public cruises back

on Tug Lyttelton

• By Jess Gibson

AFTER THREE years, it’s

back to smooth sailing for Tug

Lyttelton.

The 112-year-old tugboat was

fully booked for its second day

running a public cruise around

the harbour on Sunday.

It had been out of commission

for three years due to a need

for repairs and the requirement

to pass a number of expensive

surveys.

Tug Lyttelton Preservation Society,

whose members voluntarily

keep the tug in full working order,

had financial struggles over

this period as passenger cruise

tickets go towards keeping the

tug operational.

The passenger cruise was originally

scheduled to take place in

December 2018 but was pushed

back to January, then February

and then to this boating season

due to delays with the passenger

service licence.

Grants from the city council

and other fundraising meant the

society was able to repair the vessel

and have it pass a $83,240 dry

dock survey so there would be no

more delays.

For its first day on January

12, two 45-minute-long sessions

were held and between them,

there were about 100 passengers.

Society board member Roger

Ellery said it feels fantastic to

have the cruises back up and

running.

FULL VESSEL:

There were blue

skies as Lyttelton’s

historic tugboat

ran its second day

of public cruises

on Sunday. ​

“Now that we’ve come back

from the brink it’s a tremendous

morale booster to get them up

and going again.”

Cruises will now run every

Sunday until the end of the

summer sailing season.

REBUILD: A new $3m pavilion will replace the old, earthquakedamaged

Taylors Mistake Surf Life Saving clubhouse.

Surf club construction

to get under way

CONSTRUCTION of the

Taylors Mistake Surf Life Saving

clubhouse can get under way

following an official blessing

ceremony.

Maui Stuart of Te Hapū o

Ngāti Wheke blessed the site and

workers who will be involved in

the rebuild of the new $3m facility

on Friday.

Ngāti Wheke holds mana

whenua or right to the land over

Taylors Mistake.

The surf life saving club has

been operating from Taylors

Mistake Beach for 103 years.

The old building was red-stickered

after the 2016 Valentines

Day earthquake rendered previous

stop-gap repairs unsafe.

Since then the club has had to

operate out of three Portacom

buildings.

A large number of club members

and residents attended the

ceremony.

After the blessing, club president

Viv Bickley thanked Mr

Stuart and acknowledged Ngāti

Wheke as holding mana whenua

over the land.

The club and Ngāti Wheke

will be working with together in

the coming months and into the

future.

Project leader David Hill spoke

about and thanked the large

team of people working on the

rebuild.

Miles Construction will soon

start on stage one of the project

which is the construction of the

gear shed.

writes about

bushfires and

climate action

SITTING ON Rapaki Beach on

New Year’s Day with the smell

of Australian smoke and weird

orange glow to the sun, it felt like

a visitation from the ‘ghost of

climate change future.’

Images of bushfire evacuations

have looked more like a war zone.

We can’t let the Australian

bushfires drop off the front page

of the news, fade in our memories

and carry on as usual. We

are now looking at our children’s

futures, not some unknown

distant future relatives.

impact on our carbon footprint.

The Assistant

by S. K. Tremayne

What would you do if your home assistant turned

evil? She’s in your house. She controls your life. Now

she’s going to destroy it. From the No. 1 Sunday

Times bestseller.

She watches you constantly. Newly divorced Jo is

delighted to move into her best friend’s spare room

almost rent-free. The high-tech luxury Camden flat is

managed by a meticulous Home Assistant, called Electra, that takes

care of the heating, the lights – and sometimes Jo even turns to her

for company.

She knows all your secrets. Until, late one night, Electra says one

sentence that rips Jo’s fragile world in two: ‘I know what you did.’

And Jo is horrified. Because in her past she did do something terrible.

Something unforgivable.

Now she wants to destroy you. Only two other people in the whole

Kingdomtide

by Rye Curtis

There are more cars per head

here than in almost any city in

the world. Many of our car trips

are less than 2km long so here’s a

good place to start.

I love my bike but hate exercise.

Cycling the commute or to

visit friends is exercise on the

sly. Electric bikes make the hills

a breeze and are lots of fun, I’m

told. Expensive to buy, but if they

can replace a car they can save

you hundreds each year.

Cycling on the roads can be

intimidating but the cycleways

are connecting up now and

there are classes available to help

adults get back in the saddle. I’ve

been told Christchurch was a city

of bikes in the 60s with hundreds

of cyclists flooding into the city

every morning and night.

I’m lucky living on the Purple

Line as there’s a bus every 10min

at peak times. It takes longer but

ENTER TO

WIN

THIS BOOK

The lives of two women-the sole survivor of an airplane crash and the

troubled park ranger who leads the rescue mission to find her -intersect in

a gripping debut novel of hope and resilience, second thoughts and second

chances. I no longer pass judgment on any man nor woman. People are

people, and I do not believe there is much more to be said on the matter.

Twenty years ago I might have been of a different mind about that, but I was

a different Cloris Waldrip back then. I might have gone on being that same

Cloris Waldrip, the one I had been for seventy-two years, had I not fallen out

of the sky in that little airplane on Sunday, August 31, 1986. It does amaze

that a woman can reach the tail end of her life and find that she hardly

knows herself at all.

When seventy-two-year-old Cloris Waldrip finds herself lost and alone in

the unforgiving wilderness of the Montana mountains, with only a bible, a

sturdy pair of boots, and a couple of candies to keep her alive, it seems her

chances of ever getting home to Texas are slim.

book

release

I use the time to read, listen to a

podcast or just think.

Sometimes, coming home

tired on a crowded bus, I know

I’d rather be in my own car – but

we need to make concessions.

Every additional passenger helps

justify improvements to the bus

service, which is undoubtedly

needed.

Finally, walking. Most of us have

smaller trips we can take on foot

– the school run or picking up the

emergency milk, for example.

Every time you reach for the

car keys try asking yourself,

‘Could I make this journey another

way?’ Like me, you’ll often

find the answer is yes but I don’t

have time now. Try and make

time next time and change just a

journey a week and build up.

Let’s make 2020 the year that

we each take action to kick our

fossil fuel addiction.

Mixed views on ‘Midnight Express’

Readers respond to last

week’s letter about plans to

run a “Midnight Express” bus

service which would take

partygoers home from the

central city to Sumner

Rina Duncan – It’s a marvellous

idea to provide transport when

the buses stop running.

However, there may be

unintended consequences where

young people not from Sumner

(who don’t have a drivers licence)

will be stuck there without

a service to get them back

home, and they might get up to

mischief.

Topsy Rule – Of course there are

concerns with these buses. We

had them before, known as booze

buses.

Each Friday and Saturday

night the drivers decided not to

let the occupants vomit on their

buses, so they unloaded them

outside my home at the Redcliffs

Cutting and they all vomited

over the footpath and my

garden.

If I was not up before 6am

on each Saturday and Sunday

morning, there would be a local

jogger or walker telling me of

the disgusting mess and health

hazard, which I proceeded to

clean up with my disinfectant

and hose, as a volunteer.

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Elegant heron a

common sight

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-

Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, a non-profit

organisation formed in 2002 to protect

one of New Zealand’s most important

coastal wetlands. Each week she introduces

a new bird found in the estuary. Her column

aims to raise the understanding of the

values and uniqueness of the area.

A TALL and elegant bird, the

white-faced heron is actually

quite new to New Zealand

This heron species introduced

themselves in the 1940s and

are now commonly seen in

our estuary, McCormacks Bay,

Charlesworth Wetland, Linwood

canal, Bexley and even on sports

fields and paddocks – but only

after heavy rain, as they prefer

to search for their food while

wading in shallow water.

They are awesome birds to observe

while they stand patiently.

Without moving as much as a

feather, they wait for prey to be

within sight to then at lightning

speed grab either a small fish,

crab, worm, mouse, lizard or

frog. Lizards and frogs are more

common around the estuary than

most people are aware of.

White-faced heron’s nest near

our estuary in the tops of pine

STALKING: You’ll often see the

white-faced heron standing

motionless while hunting.

and macrocarpa trees particularly

favouring South New Brighton

Park and the lower Avon River.

How can we help these birds

thrive? Keep dogs on the lead

when walking near the estuary as

to not disturb them while feeding

or resting.

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 stovetop

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 long-grain, 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.

Put the uncooked rice in

a fine-mesh 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

STAPLE: Rice is easy to cook, but also easy to get

wrong. Make sure you rinse your rice well to

avoid it going gluggy.

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.

Business degree

or diploma – you

choose.

Committing to degree-level study is

a big decision for many people. So Ara

Institute of Canterbury has come up with

a study option that makes that decision

much easier.

“We think of it as the ‘try before you buy’

option,” Nigel Young, head of Enterprise

and Digital Innovation at Ara, says. “You

can enrol for a New Zealand Diploma in

Business, do a year of study and then at the

end of that year you can decide if you want

to leave with your diploma, or continue on

to a full degree.”

Nigel explains that this option makes it

much easier to transition to degree-level

study. “Regardless of what you decide to

do at the end of your first year, you

still get a great qualification. And

of course, if you choose to leave

with the diploma, you can always

come back and carry on to a degree

qualification at a later date if you

want to.”

The ‘try before you buy’ option

isn’t the only flexible aspect of Ara’s

Bachelor of Applied Management

degrees. They can be studied

full-time or part-time, and many

classes are delivered in the evenings

and online. “It means you can

realistically fit study around work

and other commitments,” Nigel says.

The Bachelor of Applied Management

is available in 11 specialities including

project management, accounting,

marketing and sales, human resources

and event management. Each is taught by

highly qualified tutors with extensive realworld

experience. Students graduate workready

thanks to work placements and

work-based projects with local businesses.

Ara offers a wide range of scholarships,

and students can also apply for credit

recognition if they have prior workplace

experience.
