FIRE RISK WARNING

Don’t get trapped as

temperatures soar

DANGER: Fire chiefs are warning people to be wary of areas such as this road at

Godley Head, due to their isolation as the city’s fire risk level reaches extreme.

• By Sophie Cornish

PEOPLE ARE being warned not

to go to areas they may not be

able to escape from if a major fire

breaks out in Canterbury.

The warning comes from fire

chiefs and police as days of hot

temperatures, reaching into the

early to mid-30s, will continue

until Tuesday, with potentially

record-breaking temperatures

in some areas.

The fire risk in Canterbury

will reach extreme this weekend

– the highest on the scale.

Fire and Emergency New

Zealand is encouraging

people to avoid isolated areas

that have only one or two entry

and exit points, one example

being Godley Head.

Said FENZ specialist fire

investigator Wayne Hamilton:

“Stay away from those areas.

We would suggest rather

than walking up the hills, go

along the beach. People need

to be conscious that they are

entering high fire danger areas,”

he said.

Warning for Styx Mill serial flasher

• By Sophie Cornish

MEMBERS OF the public and

police have combined to find

a man exposing himself in a

popular recreation park.

The 19-year-old was caught by

a police dog patrol in the Styx

Mill Reserve on Sunday afternoon.

It followed more than 10

reported sightings of the man,

often doing an indecent act,

over three weeks, Christchurch

North Community Patrol chairman

Sam Hall said.

A police spokeswoman said

the man was arrested and given

a pre-charge warning.

The warning is an alternative

to prosecution for offenders who

have committed offences with a

maximum penalty of no more

than six months imprisonment.

EIGHTEEN-MONTHS-AGO

Tim Hunt was watching a video

on how an American traded in a

paperclip for a house.

Sitting on the couch beside

him just happened to be a plastic

fork.

Then an idea struck the

30-year-old musician – if an

American turned a paperclip

into a house – could he do the

same with a fork?

“I thought, you know what?

I’m gonna do it!” said Mr Hunt.

On December 27, Mr Hunt

traded a Merida road bike for a

1999 Nissan Serena.

It was his biggest trade yet, and

his eighth.

It all started with a friend, who

was willing to take on the plastic

fork in exchange for a book,

about snoring.

“I’m in a band called Stonehurst,

we’ve been around for

about 15 years. Stace is a lead

singer from another band and

we’re quite good friends. I think

he took it on and thought it

might go well. He took it happily,”

said Mr Hunt.

The book was then traded for a

soft guitar case, which was then

traded for a hedge trimmer.

The hedge trimmer was then

traded in for a sound rack, which

was traded for a Nintendo gaming

console.

From there, Mr Hunt acquired

a 32” LG TV, in exchange for the

console.

The TV was then traded up for

the road bike, which he sat on for

a while.

“This guy (who had the road

bike) was a bit down, he had a

bad break up and needed a TV

because he moved out of his

home and I actually had a whole

bunch of DVDs and CDs that I

gave him as well.”

“I’ve just been waiting for the

right opportunity. The main

prosecute, even though there is

sufficient evidence to do so.

“It’s quite ironic that the dogs

found him in the dog park,” Mr

Hall said.

A woman, who didn’t wish

to be named, said her teenage

daughter and another teenage

family member were out walking

on a track off Hussey Rd,

when the man, with his pants

down, began following them.

purpose of it is bigger and better.

Every time I trade I have to trade

of at least equal or greater value.”

He struck a good deal when he

found a man willing to trade in

his Nissan for the bike.

“He had been looking for a

bike for a while and wanted to

bike around, go to the shops etc.

He has another vehicle and the

van had been sitting there taking

up room for a while.”

Mr Hunt is now looking ahead

to the next milestone, which he

hopes will be property.

“I guess the next logical step

“When they looked around he

kept hiding behind bushes, they

started to jog as they felt really

uncomfortable and felt something

wasn’t right. It was a hot

day and he had a thick hoodie,”

she said.

Mr Hall said his patrol group,

which has about 30 volunteers,

had been monitoring the area

during its daytime and evening

patrols.

to go to next. It might be more

difficult from now on.

“I’m just having fun. I just

want to see how far it goes. I

could even get a house. It will be

interesting to see where it goes.

People have been following it and

loving it.”

His advice for anyone considering

doing the plastic fork game

was simple:

“Be patient, have a positive

outlook, don’t expect too much

and be open to receiving.”

Dog killed, two people

injured in crash

A dog was killed when a car

crashed and flipped on to its

roof yesterday morning. Two

people were also injured in

the incident just after 9.10

on Travis Rd, west of the

Anzac Dr roundabout. One

was moderately injured and

another sustained minor

injuries, a St John spokesman

said. A police spokesman

confirmed the dog, which was

in the car at the time of the

crash, died.

Man jailed for breaking

into parking meters

A man has been jailed for at

least 30-40 thefts of parking

meters in the city, totalling

anywhere from $20,000 to

$35,000. But police failed to

prove that the self-confessed

night raider, Brent John Davie,

was the thief behind more

than 170 machines that were

targeted. The 46-year-old was

jailed for a year by Judge Kevin

Phillips in the district court

yesterday. Davie previously told

police he would cycle around

the central city with a jemmy

bar tucked up his sleeve.

Pool reopened after

repairs

Jellie Park Recreation and

Sport Centre’s recreation pool

reopened on Saturday after the

tank tiles were repaired. Said

a Christchurch City Council

spokeswoman: “The Jellie Park

recreation pool was repaired

and reopened to the public on

Saturday, 25 January.” A city

council memo last week said

the pool tank was relined due

to a significant number of tiles

failing and customers and staff

receiving cuts to their feet.

A WHITE supremacist jailed

for sharing disturbing footage

of the mosque shootings has

been banned from the city’s two

mosques – and from having any

contact with all Muslims.

Philip Neville Arps, 45, who

was sentenced to 21 months in

prison last June for spreading

disturbing footage of the Al Noor

Mosque massacre, was scheduled

for release late yesterday.

But last week, the Department

of Corrections applied for extra

release conditions, on top of the

raft of conditions imposed on

him when he was sentenced at

the district court on June 18 –

including a blanket internet ban,

inspections of any electronic

device capable of accessing

the internet, counselling, and

drug or alcohol treatment

programmes.

Corrections officials said they

have “ongoing concerns” about

Arps’ risk to the public, in particular

to the Muslim community,

after fears over his “general

behaviour” towards prison staff,

along with intercepted letters

and phone calls.

The content of those letters

or BB-gun activities.

Arps had challenged the extra

conditions sought by Corrections.

Through defence counsel

Anselm Williams, he argued that

the existing “carefully considered”

release conditions would

be sufficient and was critical that

the Corrections report writer

had never met with Arps in person

and spoken to him about his

views or correspondence.

There was nothing to suggest

Arps was a physical threat or at

a heightened risk of reoffending,

Williams said.

A Corrections official who

gave evidence at the hearing said

that Arps, who compares himself

to Adolf Hitler’s deputy and war

criminal Rudolf Hess, found

anyone who disagrees with his

belief system to be offensive.

She fears he could harm

the Muslim community again

“through his views … most

likely through online advocacy.”

The Muslim Association of

Canterbury supported the extra

release conditions, saying the

community is “still very much

traumatised” and says it’s imperative

that Arps, who maintains

his anti-Muslim rhetoric cannot

visit or be seen around mosques

nationwide.

Corrections also expressed

concern over Arps’ business

Beneficial Insulation, with its

various Nazi symbols and white

supremacist messages, and

sought a condition that prevents

him from using his employment

as a platform to promote extreme

views.

However, Judge O’Driscoll did

not impose that condition.

Full reasons for his decision

will be released today.

CITY COUNCILLORS say

Canterbury has received a

“slap in the face” over the

Government’s $12 billion

nationwide infrastructure

package.

The North Island will receive

the majority of the funding, with

$3.48 billion spent in Auckland,

$991 million in Waikato and the

Bay of Plenty, $692 million in

Northland and $1.35 billion on

Wellington.

POLICE WERE called to Wilding

Park on Tuesday after an alleged

assault on a player at a junior

The incident happened after a

It is understood the player accused

of the assault put his shoulder

into the other player following

a heated match.

The father of the alleged victim

his son had been assaulted. Police

went to Wilding Park and spoke

to the players involved.

A police spokesperson said it

was unlikely any further action

would be taken.

The player alleged to have made

the assault was withdrawn from

the tournament. It is understood

he has the right to appeal any further

sanctions handed out to him.

Tournament director and ITF

want to comment on the incident

due to it currently being under

investigation by the ITF.

Tennis Canterbury chief

incident due to the tournament

The 42-year-old was born into a

“When you are brought up into

Since being employed in

Mr Pearce said since the programme

He said the programme has

provided support to 50 tenants

in total.

Along with help formulating

CVs, getting interview clothes,

job searching, interview skills,

travel and ongoing support six

months into employment, the

programme also has a job club

where tenants can share ideas

work.

Charges

over selling

homekill

• By Sophie Cornish

A CHRISTCHURCH dairy is

facing prosecution for selling

homekill meat.

Eight charges under the Animal

Products Acts have been laid

following an investigation by the

Ministry of Primary Industries.

An MPI spokesman said it was

unable to provide any further information

about the investigation as

the case is now before the courts.

MPI’s website states the penalties

for breaking homekill rules

are significant.

The maximum fine is $75,000

for individuals and $300,000 for

corporations.”

In New Zealand, homekill trade

is restricted to be eaten only by

the animal’s owner, family, household

or any farmworkers involved

in a farm’s daily operations, their

family and household.

It can also be served on a marae.

Homekill cannot be served to

paying customers, bartered, raffled

or donated as a prize or fundraiser.

It cannot be used by schools,

universities, hospitals or prisons.

Its trade is restricted only to parts

of the animal that are not for

consumption, such as hide, skins,

horns or antlers.

THE MAJORITY of community

boards are cutting back on

catering costs following public

scrutiny last term.

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board is the only board to

increase its catering budget.

It now takes the title of the

highest spending board with

an estimated $228 put aside for

catering per meeting, an increase

from the $216 allocated towards

catering in the previous term.

City council head of community

support, governance and

partnerships John Filsell said a

new supplier was being trialled

and options were being explored

to reduce costs.

“Meetings are at Lyttelton,

Little River and Akaroa; this

requires elected members and

others to travel some distance to

and from the meeting, extending

the overall time commitment. At

some venues and at some times,

such as Little River, there may

not be the opportunity for elected

members and others to purchase

refreshments close by,” he said.

Banks Peninsula board

members may have the highest

catering budget, but they have

the lowest annual salary. Banks

Peninsula board members are

paid $9864 and the chair $19,729,

whereas city board members

are paid up to $24,580 and their

chairs up to $49,160.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

after a decision was made last

term to remove it.

He said options were being

explored to reduce the Spreydon-

Cashmere catering budget of

$130 to around $90 a meeting.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

has shaved about $25 off its

catering budget by purchasing

items directly from the

five walks could go ahead.

“After the first two walks are

completed, council staff and Tē

Pūtahi will undertake a pause

and review process to evaluate

the results, approach and scope

of the project.”

The city council has commissioned

independent non-profit

organisation Tē Pūtahi to run

the programme.

Celebrating 30 years racing

2020 Skope Classic - Car Racing like no other!

After 30 years of uninterrupted classic race meeting,

the Canterbury Car Club along with the long-time

sponsor and supporter, Skope Industries, will celebrate

the iconic two-day birthday event this weekend with

some fanfare.

Originally under the name of the BP Alfa Classic,

PDL Industries took over naming rights in 1995 before

Skope became involved in 2003. The enthusiasm from

competitors and the public has never waned, and the

meeting remains the biggest in both entry and crowd

numbers on the club’s calendar.

A handful of cars from the inaugural 1991 event

remain and while the value of these cars has increased,

the current owners still believe that as racing cars, their

right place is on the track.

Over the years the event has invariably carried a

theme. This year it will celebrate 50 years of the Open

Saloon Car Association (OSCA). Strictly a South Island

affair these days, OSCA was formed by a local group

who deemed that the costs of racing in the national

championship for “all-comers” type cars had become

too expensive.

In the early years, the front running cars were always

V8 powered. This has changed with time, with turbo

and rotary-powered cars also becoming front-runners.

For OSCA’s birthday at the Skope it is anticipated that

some 30 cars will line up. Some of these have not raced

for years. This includes the winning MK1 Ford Escort

Turbo of Michael Johnston, a car restored and driven

by new owner, Nick Donaldson.

Also in the field will be a 1977 5-litre Alfa Romeo

Alfetta, a car that has not raced in OSCA but against

them in the 1980s. It is competing by invitation and will

be driven by former BNTV8 champion, Angus Fogg.

Other saloon cars of note that will compete in other

classes include three former Australian Supercars, a 2004

Ford Falcon, a 2006 Ford Falcon and a 2007 Holden

Commodore, along with a selection of New Zealand

muscle cars and the Historic Touring Car category.

A crowd-pleaser for many years has been the Formula

5000 revival series cars. The category fits nicely into the

theme of classic cars. At a time when the “sound of silence”

vehicles are becoming more common on the road, it is

generally accepted that the sound of these cars along with

the V8 saloon cars are an added crowd attraction.

In the driver line, will be the well-known Richards

family - father Jim, a seven-time winner at Bathurst, his

son Steven, a five-time winner of this classic event and

his son, Clay, who now drives Formula Ford in Australia.

While the major attraction is a wonderful array of

cars, the meeting is also designed to cater for families.

Pit entry comes at no extra charge and spectators are

welcome to mingle with drivers and their cars. For

younger family members, there will be a number of

activities. We’ve got one huge children’s activity area

this year.

There have only been 4 outstanding

drivers who have taken part in all 30

Classic Car events, now known as Skope.

Dennis Champan, Debbie Chapman,

Keith Cowan & Brian Dixon.

February 3, 1931 – When

an earthquake, measuring 7.8

magnitude, struck at 10.47am,

many buildings in central

life (256), it remains the worst

civil disaster to have happened in

New Zealand.

February 4, 1985 – New

because the United States would

neither confirm nor deny that the

warship had nuclear capability.

February 5, 1911 –

Pioneering aviator Vivian Walsh

Auckland to make the first

LAST YEAR the council signed

off on a major programme of

works to get heat pumps and

ventilation into 909 priority

social housing units by the

beginning of next winter – that

is by the beginning of June.

Obviously, some individual

units could require more time,

for example electrical wiring

issues, but the goal is to have

them all completed in that time

frame.

Nothing has changed, and

we remain on track to deliver

this part of the Warm & Dry

programme.

So why the confusion?

Great idea for battered road

I LIKE PEOPLE who think

outside of the box.

It’s where we get our best innovations,

it leads to discoveries

and new ways of doing things.

On page 4 today, we have one

of those out of the box ideas –

and for my money it looks like a

pretty good one.

New city councillor Phil

Mauger wants part of New

Brighton Rd rebuilt on red zone

land.

New Brighton Rd was

smashed in the February 22,

2011, earthquake and parts of

the road, which is the major

link between Shirley and New

Brighton, is still in fairly much

the same state.

Ongoing patch-up repairs

have worked for a short time

but water from the Avon River

always returns in a big tide or

when it rains to undo the work.

So Mauger has come up with

an idea. Move part of New

Brighton Rd away from the river

onto the red zone.

Last year the city council earmarked

$1 million to fix a tiny

part of the road between Bower

Ave and Wattle Drive.

It floods badly there – always

has, even well before the earthquake

when a king tide or heavy

winter rain fell. The river would

spill over and run down towards

Wattle Drive.

To rebuild all of New Brighton

Rd would cost squillions, but

doing something is vital if it is

to be able to carry the muchanticipated

traffic when New

Brighton becomes a thriving

seaside village in 10 years. That’s

according to some of our city

The council tender (1/11/19)

was for a panel of contractors

to supply and install heat

pumps and mechanical ventilation

to 416 social housing units,

with further installations as

required.

This was interpreted as meaning

we were not going to meet

the winter target of 909 units,

From the

editor’s desk

Heat pumps remain on track for winter

leaders anyway.

So after what appears to be

Mauger’s idea, the city council

has parked repairing the stretch

between Bower Ave and Wattle

Drive, pending further thinking.

That’s a good idea.

but that was incorrect. The

tender process was designed to

allow staff to assess the performance

of the contractors as the

first wave of installations got

underway, (as well as the price

per install), before issuing the

rest of the works for the remaining

installs.

And then there was the added

BATTERED: City councillor

Phil Mauger (above) has

come up with a novel idea

to fix New Brighton Rd, one

of the city’s most damaged

roads in the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

Now the real work begins in

terms of mapping out how parts

of the road could be moved from

where it is now onto parts of the

red zone, how much that will

cost and when it can be factored

into the city’s budget.

Mauger should sit alongside

council staff when that conversation

happens.

As a businessman in the construction

industry he will know

best value for money for ratepayers

if the project gets traction.

That’s the kind of cooperation

and outside of the box

thinking we need going forward.

confusion of including the insulation

component of the Warm

& Dry Programme, which was

always the next stage and due

to be delivered by the end of the

year.

So, an assumption was made

that the programme had slipped.

It hasn’t. And we remain committed

to achieving the goal that

we have set for 909 units to have

the heat pumps and ventilation

installed by winter.

I am sorry to see our social

housing tenants get caught

up in what started as a

misunderstanding of the

tender.

should be a safe place, however, is

it worth it putting things like that

into temptation of idiots. Have

a shrine at home and put them

there where it is safe.

Niki Kitto – This is just

appalling that some people have

no respect for others, stealing

from a child’s grave is the lowest

of the low.

Stacey McConnochie –

It’s heartbreaking for an already

grieving mum to again be faced

with heartache. We put these

things with our loved ones as

an extension of our love and for

it to be taken makes me so

angry.

Maureen Diane Pope-

Beacham – How can anybody

do such a cruel thing as to steal

from a grave. So very sad for the

family. Absolutely disgusting.

Sondja Emmerson – My

mum was heartbroken several

years ago upon learning that

flowers and trinkets at her mum’s

grave were stolen. She went

online to share her dismay and

a young guy posted and was

bragging that he takes flowers

from cemeteries to save money

when he wants to treat his mum

or girlfriend.

Lou Skinner – Who is dumb

enough to steal greenstone and

even worse from a grave? They

will pay more than they know for

that. So sad.

Alison Aluni – People

who steal taonga are asking

to have an illness, maybe not

them but whoever they give it

to. Who steals from graves

anyway?

Cheryl Smith – My heart

grieves for this mum and for

all those who apparently have

no longer have hearts or moral

compasses.

Helen Smith – I am not

surprised but this especially

after the first offender was

not charged. Seems like it

okay to steal these days. Even if

caught, nothing happens.

Stephanie Hagerty

– Do we have to put cameras in

graveyards now to keep things

safe there as well?

Danielle Baxter – That’s

tapu. Good luck with karma.

Mike Vivian – Well those

thieves will live a life of misery.

We all know what happens

when you steal someone else’s

greenstone.

William Patterson

– Stealing from graves? What the

hell is wrong with people?

Carina Mulitalo – Bottom

line is no one should ever touch

someone’s final resting place.

Debra Sinclair – Sad but we

really need camera surveillance

in cemeteries now.

fitting place for it would be in the

The NZ Hall of Sports Fame.

Secondly, it could be installed

in the town where Richie grew

up. Or thirdly a centrepiece for

don’t want yet another

grotesque sculpture in our city.

Our city suits water fountains

and we have some lovely public

art on our buildings and we have

a glorious mix of architecture.

Maybe there could be a Wall of

we must have sculptures littering

They were security-based

roundabouts really.

Pony ride could lead to an uncertain financial future

SO, MY financial future may be

in dire straits. But boy, I’m so

proud of Vittoria.

Continuing the fun of birthday

season we had another second

birthday on Saturday, this time in

rural North Canterbury.

Being that it was farmyardthemed

there were a few animals

in attendance – rabbits, guinea

pigs and a few hot cows hiding in

some shade in a back paddock.

However, the grand flourish was

a pair of ponies available for rides.

Vittoria had only seen ponies

at Willowbank previously but

didn’t seem too put out by them

or even excited when we arrived.

Her first reaction was to run right

past them to go down a slide a

few times.

Other kids were happily taking

short rides on either one of the

ponies, which got Laura and I

curious as to whether Vittoria

would be willing to do the same.

She did not take a huge amount

of convincing, I asked her once

and she happily followed me

over to a waiting steed and let me

lift her onto the saddle without

complaint.

I was worried she would fall

off as soon as I let go, so hovered

about a bit while the woman organising

the rides got her sorted –

including putting her helmet on,

which surprisingly elicited not

even a squeak out of her.

With my worries still lurking

about, I tried to keep a reassuring

hand on Vittoria’s back (ready

to grab her should she make

an insane dive from the pony).

But it became apparent pretty

VITTORIA

& Matt

quickly that she was in no need of

Daddy’s help.

She sat in the saddle perfectly,

confidently. Her expression calm,

back straight, her body moving

slightly to allow for the movement

of her mount.

Within about 5m of her ride, I

stood back in amazement.

As far as my talent goes on

horseback, I’ve only got fleeting

memories of some lessons I took

inland of Waikuku.

My great-grandmother Mary

Matches was known in her

younger days as a rather skilled

horse-breaker and talented rider,

so I’m guessing her skills have

jumped a few generations.

Unfortunately, in another

unlike-my-great-grandmother

moment, I neither live on a farm

nor own a horse. So if a passion

for equestrian pursuits has been

awakened in Vittoria, I’m looking

at a long future of forking out

for pony clubs, lessons and, God

forbid, a ruddy horse.

Expensive as that all may be,

GIDDY-UP:

my financial

future fell

if it would give her as much

happiness as that pony ride

did on Saturday and she’s truly

passionate, I’ll make it happen.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Show aims to change society’s

views on sex and relationships

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AJ JUER always knew many

people do not understand what

real consent is.

But when Juer went to

interview 17 people as part of

research for a new show on positive

sex, relationships and communication,

the 22-year-old was

shocked to learn sexual violence

in society was even worse than

he initially thought.

Last year, the National Academy

of Singing and Dramatic Art

graduate decided to interview a

wide range of people identifying

as women, transgender

and non-binary to gather their

experiences on growing up and

understanding their sexuality.

The research was to help Juer

write a new play aiming at getting

audiences to realise society’s

understanding of sex and relationships

is “not adequate.”

The young performer also interviewed

people assigned female

as birth, regardless of what their

sexual/gender identity is now, to

understand what women feel is

expected of them in society.

But what Juer took away from

the interviews was “absolutely

shocking.”

“Out of the 17 people I interviewed

there were one or two

people who hadn’t experienced

sexual assault.”

Juer said what was even more

disturbing was while 17 people is

a small number and not statistical

or scientific, the interviews

weren’t specifically aimed at

speaking to people who had

experienced sexual assault.

“I didn’t say I wanted to

interview women, transgender

and non-binary people who have

experienced sexual assault.

“Just by chance, almost every

single person has experienced

some sort of sexual manipulation

or emotional manipulation

within relationships,” he said.

It comes as a national survey

from Counting Ourselves, which

focuses on the health and wellbeing

of trans/non-binary people

in New Zealand, found trans/

non-binary people experience

sexual violence at more than 4x

the rate of the general population.

The in-depth survey of 1178

trans and non-binary people

aged 14-83 released last year

revealed almost a third of participants

reported someone had

sex with them against their will

since they were 13.

Statistics from Aviva Family

Violence Services also showed

one in three women experience

physical/sexual violence from a

partner in their lifetime.

It is why Juer wants to highlight

in the show how important

it is to have open communication

with a sexual romantic partner.

“I want people feeling less like

sex is about “I have to perform”

AJ Juer ​

or “I have to get something from

the other person” and more like

sex is about mutually benefiting

each other in a way where you

both feel safe,” he said.

It is hoped the play will be

completed over the next year.

Juer also wants people to

question the sex education in

schools and the common narrative

society has around sex and

relationships.

Last year, a report released

by the Education Review Office

found the majority of schools

were not meeting students’ needs

with sex education and they

were being let down by a lack of

education around consent, pornography

and sexual violence.

While Juer’s show is in the

early stages, it is hoped to be

staged as a sex therapy session

with the main character teaching

people about consent from a

comedic perspective.

He said one of the most common

shared experiences to come

out of the interviews is manipulation

in a relationship in which

a person feels safe.

It was also found people who

identify or previously have identified

as a woman felt pressure to

please people.

In the midst of working on the

new show, Juer, formerly known

as Amy Juer, has recently gone

through a massive life change

coming out as transgender.

Compared to others, Juer

has had the “best experience

possible” coming out - with a

supportive network of family,

friends and acquaintances

“I am lucky from a personal

experience because my family -

even if they don’t fully get it they

try to get it,” Juer said.

Even people who are not Juer’s

friends want to accommodate

and learn.

“I think it just is the older

generation - I think they are just

really scared.”

Before coming out, for years

Juer would not allow the possibility

to explore being transgender/non-binary.

“I felt really uncomfortable in

my own skin not because I hate

LOVE OF THE ARTS: AJ Juer (lying down) performing in Blackboard Theatre Collective’s

production of He Says She Says last year as part of a fundraiser for The Champion Centre.

my body but because I was really

forced into the whole woman

thing”.

But since coming out Juer has

had to face the daily frustrations

of getting people to use the correct

pronouns, in spite of it not

being new.

“I definitely have fears of people

getting annoyed because I am

transgender please don’t ignore

that, please don’t treat me like a

woman, please don’t expect me

to be a woman, use my correct

pronouns in the workplace.”

Juer described coming out as

transgender in the theatre scene

as an “interesting experience”

due to not knowing anyone else

in the industry at the time who

identified the same.

Companies such as The Court

Theatre have tried to accommodate

Juer’s requests.

But Juer has fears as a freelancing

actor of not being protected

under the law.

“It would be very easy for anyone

to go well we won’t put you

in a contract again because the

fact you are transgender annoys

us.”

Currently under the Human

Rights Act 1993, it doesn’t

explicitly protect people from

discrimination on the ground of

gender identity, but it prohibits

discrimination on the grounds

of sex.

It was reported while the

Human Rights Commission

interprets sex to include gender

and gender identity, in a 2008

Transgender Inquiry said to

advance the rights of LGBTQI

people, trans people need explicit

protection under the act.

Juer said while the new show

isn’t about gender, within society

gender plays a role in sex and relationships

and the entire experience

of coming out is valuable in

its creation.

GARDENING

Dining al fresco? Make sure your

outdoor living area is up to task

IT’S DEFINITELY the time

of year we all like to get

outside as much as

possible.

It’s warm and you now

have plenty of time in the

evenings after work to have

a relaxing meal in your garden

or outdoor living area.

It’s very easy to design an

area that will make outdoor

entertaining enjoyable.

• Plants –Try and use

plants that you like the look

of, and that complement

the garden area whatever

your favourite style, and

plants that will help to

soften any solid structures

like concrete walls and

paving.

The best idea is to take a

note when you go to other

peoples places, of what

plants you like, and this will

help you in choosing the direction/

style for your own

area. Plain wooden fences

most of the time look ugly,

and a bit like prison walls,

so softening these is a good

start. You can do this by

planting a hedge, or a border

of assorted plants and

where there is very little

room, espaliering a plant

onto a fence is easy and

very effective.

• Water features —

There are some awesome

water features available

these days, in all shapes

and sizes. If you want the

water feature to be seen

from several angles you will

need to select one where

the water spills over on all

sides.

The latest trend is that

the water features are made

of a composite material

of fibreglass/cement

mixture – lightweight but

strong – and importantly

they look very natural. Also

the sound of water near

an outdoor living area is a

relaxing sound.

• Garden sculptures/

art – If adding either art

or sculpture into your

garden it will, like the water

feature, add an element that

you don’t get in lots of other

gardens. Set amongst your

plants or in pride of place

on a feature wall, it will add

a point of interest that will

certainly get your visitors

talking.

#Areyouupforit? www.city2surf.co.nz

weeK Three: Knuckling down and some tips on nutrition and weight loss

In week 3 the early excitement of the City 2 Surf project you have undertaken is wearing off. You may not have

sensed a big improvement in fitness levels yet and other commitments are getting in the way of training. After

your determined start the first doubts set in: “Can I do this?” This is the time to knuckle down. You need another

2 or 3 consistent weeks before you notice a significant improvement in fitness and energy levels and perhaps

some noticeable weight loss. Once that happens you will be well on your way. The best time of day to exercise is

early morning. It is good to get it out of the way and it will energise you for the rest of the day. Later in the day you

might just feel that little bit of fatigue or things crop up which will tempt you to say “tomorrow is another day….”

This can easily become habit and before you know it you have lost one or 2 training sessions every week. Of

course you might have a good reason for not being able to get out early. Other times of the day for your training

session are perfectly fine too but good planning is required. A light snack (toast/bread, fruit) before your early

morning training session is generally recommended to assist your blood sugar levels. This also applies if you

exercise later in the morning or afternoon. Breakfast or a meal after training will assist with replenishing energy

stores. Exercising before going to bed might keep you awake for a while if you are a light sleeper.

To achieve this goal

you need to develop

some awareness around

the basic requirements

of exercising for health

and fitness. First and

foremost this has to do

with 3 key principles:

1. How often do you train? To

improve your level of health and

fitness you will need to aim for 4

sessions per week. 2 or 3 sessions per

week will only maintain what you have and 1

session per week is definitely not sufficient.

2. How long are your sessions? The

duration of your sessions will generally

build towards between 30 and 50 minutes

with one longer session of 60-80 minutes.

3. What is the right intensity to train at?

The good thing about the programme

is that all your runs will be done at

submaximal pace, also called conversation

pace. That means a pace where you can still

talk. If you can’t talk you are going too fast

and you are likely to come to a grinding halt

sooner or later.

This programme and accompanying information are written

as a guide only. If you are concerned about your health at

any stage please undergo a health check with your GP.

TIP oF The weeK

If you need to lose some weight, then this

training programme will help you. But it

will only do so if you pay attention to your

nutrition at the same time. Healthy choices

include bread and or cereals for breakfast,

sandwiches or a salad for lunch and an evening

meal consisting of plenty of vegetables with

fish, chicken or lean meat. Pasta and rice are

also good staple foods for active people.

One helping and avoidance of rich desserts

will assist your weight loss. A healthy snack

mid morning and afternoon will help you get

through the day. Fruit is always an excellent

choice. Avoid fatty foods and snacks with

refined sugars. If you need help with your

nutrition or weight loss this might be a good

time to have a consultation with an expert, like

one of the SportsMed nutritionists.

SUMMARY

Proud Sponsors


IT’S THAT time of the

year again.

Super Rugby starts

tomorrow, yes it’s still only

January, but it’s time to

gaze into the crystal ball

and take a look at how this

year’s competition could

shape up.

The biggest question on

all of our minds is if the

Crusaders can accomplish

a record fourth straight

title which would undoubtedly

mark this generation

of the team, under Scott

Robertson, as our greatest

ever.

Unlike the beginning of

his first title campaign the

bookies have the Crusaders

starting the season as

favourites. However, with

the departure of more

than 800 games of Super

Rugby experience in Owen

Franks, Sam Whitelock,

Matt Todd, Jordan Taufua,

Kieran Read and Ryan

Crotty, this will be his biggest

challenge yet.

It’s hard to read too

much into pre-season, but

the last two weeks would

suggest the Crusaders will

be a force to be reckoned

with after wins over the

Hurricanes (40-19) and

Highlanders (41-7).

There is no doubt about

the Crusaders attacking

prowess which boasts

arguably the competition’s

best backline. Richie

Mo’unga will once again

stake his claim as the

country’s best first-five

with the likes of Braydon

Ennor, Jack Goodhue, Will

Jordan, Sevu Reece, David

Havili and George Bridge

to feed.

The one area the Crusaders

are likely to be targeted

is at the breakdown with

some questions remaining

around the lack of experience

in the loose forwards

after the departure of

Read, Todd and Taufua.

There is no doubting the

class of the experienced

Whetu Douglas and if the

likes of Tom Christie, Billy

Harmon, Sione Havili and

Tom Sanders can step up

to the rigours of Super

Rugby then there’s no reason

to think the Crusaders

can’t be there come the

grand-final.

The biggest threat within

the New Zealand conference

is likely to come from

the Chiefs who look strong

with the return of Aaron

Cruden from abroad and

Damien McKenzie from

injury. Brodie Retallick’s

departure to Japan is a

major loss, but the recruit-

laughing stock to

relevance?

ment of Warren Gatland as

coach is a massive coup for

the Chiefs.

Further north it will remain

to be seen if the Blues

can finally sort out their

woes with the addition of

Beauden Barrett. Surely his

star power combined with

a flurry of talent which is

yet to reach its potential

has the right ingredients

to return the Auckland

franchise to relevance.

Another question begging

this year is if we will

see a return to strength in

South Africa. For the best

part of over a decade any

New Zealand side going

which looks like the side’s biggest asset in 2020.

unbeaten during their

stint in South Africa was

an anomaly. However, in

recent years the feat has

become all too easy for our

top sides.

Come play-off time the

South African sides will

be the biggest threat to

any New Zealand sides.

The Lions contested three

consecutive finals between

2016 and 2018, but last year

under the pool’s structure,

the Jaguares were able to

top the African pool with

their South American flair.

However, if their Super

Rugby sides can ride the

wave of reassurance in

South African rugby on

the back of their World

Cup win the South African

conference could be back

to its best.

As for the Australian

conference, it would be

nice to see old time foes

like the Brumbies, Reds

and Waratahs return to

contention.

However, nothing over

the last 12 months would

suggest they’re ready to

make the jump just yet.

Yes, the Brumbies

finished third last year,

but that was courtesy of

sweeping aside a very poor

Australian conference.

Let’s hope it’s not the same

in 2020.

JUST DAYS OUT from the

beginning of the Crusaders

bid for a record fourth straight

Super Rugby title, coach Scott

Robertson still has time for

something at the grass roots

which makes him tick.

Robertson might be one of the

biggest names in World Rugby,

but outside of the day-to-day

running of the Crusaders it’s the

progression of his local Sumner

colts side playing on the back of

his mind.

This comes to fruition on Tuesday

and Thursday evenings when

Robertson finishes his day with

the Crusaders at Rugby Park and

heads to colts training to help

the Sumner teenagers as what he

describes as a technical adviser

role for the team.

“I’m just giving back,” said

Robertson.

In the past Sumner have tried,

but failed to establish and maintain

a colts side – which is crucial

for the development of players

out of secondary school before

moving to premier grade.

Robertson had the same pathway

to achieve his dreams as a

teen at the Mt Maunganui club

before moving south. He now

hopes Sumner will be able to

offer the same opportunity for its

local players.

“That’s what I would like, the

opportunity for one of the local

boys from Sumner to have what

I had and be given a pathway to

achieve what they can and play

for Canterbury, Crusaders and

the All Blacks.”

Robertson – a life member at

Sumner – says the emergence of

the Storm colts team this year is

a massive step for the club.

“Colts grade is tough. We

know the participation rates in

rugby is an area that needs attention

and it’s a real challenge

for us.

“Being involved is just what

anyone would do for their club,

just to keep to connected with

the young players because we

know how important they are for

our game,” said Robertson.

It’s easy to see that Sumner has

a special place in Robertson’s

heart. He has lived in the seaside

community for 20 years and

began his coaching career with

the club. He was a player coach

for the club’s top side and after

undefeated division 2 campaigns

in 2008 and 2009 they gained

promotion to the premier

competition for the first time

in 2010. He coached the side to

a debut 6th-place finish, before

concentrating on his role with

Canterbury at the time.

His passion for the colts team

has already rubbed off on some

of its players. First-five Ollie

Lewis played his junior rugby

at Sumner and now after five

years at Christchurch Boys’

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Razor giving Sumner

grass roots rugby an edge

TALENT: Ollie Lewis will steer the Sumner Storm backline

after a standout season at Christchurch Boys’ High School

in 2019.

High School – which included

playing for New Zealand Schools

last year – is returning to his

boyhood club with the Storm.

“We just had a little gettogether

the other week and he

was really passionate. I think all

the boys thought, hang on this is

something else. It’s pretty cool to

have him come along and show

how much passion he has for the

club,” said Lewis.

“I don’t think too many clubs

have a Super Rugby coach

coming down to training.”

The 18-year-old was part of

a very strong junior side also

called the Storm several years

ago.

Lewis says the side spent four

years together and could count

the amount of losses they had

on one hand. The boys then

departed for secondary school

and many eventually played first

XV rugby.

However, five years ago

somewhat of a pact was made to

regroup in 2020 and get a colts

team running.

“We always wanted to come

back and play for Sumner,” said

Lewis.

The side is coached by Gareth

D’Almeida who was a player

under Robertson’s reign with the

club’s premier side.

“It’s been a long time in the

making,” said D’Almeida.

‘Grass roots rugby is the lifeblood of communities and

the spirit of our nation’

– Scott Robertson

There’s a good core group of

them that played junior rugby

together for Sumner. They would

have been eight or nine. They’ve

had Storm 2020 gear for the last

three years. That’s always been to

finish school and aim for 2020.

“If you don’t have colts, you

don’t have a pathway. They go

to first XV, but where do they

go from there. If you’re a sharp

half-back or first-five you might

go straight to div one, but ideally

they want to play premier colts

for a year and go from there.”

CLUB MAN:

Robertson has

been helping

coach the

Sumner colts

side on Tuesday

and Thursday

evenings (left).

In recent years

he has built

a reputation

as one of the

globe’s top

rugby coaches

after winning

three straight

Super Rugby

titles with the

Crusaders

(below).

D’Almeida says that Robertson

has played a key role in establishing

the colts side and believes his

presence at training is a massive

boost for the players.

“Razor’s been involved with

that right through the years as

well. He’s certainly there to help

. . . he’s just keen to see it get off

the ground,” said D’Almeida.

“If you’re a budding young

rugby player and you’ve got the

Crusaders head coach cruising

around, it’s absolutely a big

drawcard and equally he could

have been the All Blacks coach.”

Robertson says his involvement

with Sumner is just one

aspect to his values of wanting

to give back to grass roots rugby

which he fondly remembers

growing up. He also expressed

he has and open door policy for

coaches from club rugby to come

into the Crusaders and up-skill.

“Grass roots rugby is the

lifeblood of communities and the

spirit of our nation, so everyone’s

got their little part to play,” said

Robertson.

“I think it’s key that everyone

has a role in their club. I just see

the role in my club as connecting

people and to get people to

continue their love for rugby.”

Skope Classic to feature

replica V8-powered Cortina

• By Gordon Findlater

IN 1973 Clyde Collins drove his

V8-powered Ford Cortina to win

the OSCA championship.

THis weekend Clyde will watch

a replica of the same car, he and

his son Adam have built, race at

OSCA’s 50th-anniversary event

at Ruapuna.

The OSCA 50th-celebration is

part of the Skope Classic meeting

this weekend where the Collins’

car will be driven by Adam.

The decision to create a replica

of the championship-winning

Cortina has been a special

experience for Clyde and Adam

– who has been through a turbulent

time.

Adam’s daughter Maddie

was diagnosed with nephrotic

syndrome, a kidney disease, in

2008, and has since received

two different kidneys. In 2012, a

kidney donated from Adam was

rejected by her body. Maddie’s

current kidney was donated in

January last year.

Clyde, who turns 79 tomorrow,

says the project has been

instrumental in giving his son

something else to focus on during

that challenging time.

“Adam was in a pretty bad

spot with the situation going

on over a period of eight years

and I thought it would be good

for him to be involved in this

project to help him through the

situation, and it’s done that,” said

Clyde.

“He has got the passion and it

helped him get out of a very grey

spot a couple of years back.”

The car racing this weekend is

almost identical to the original

Cortina which ran a 5-litre

Chevrolet engine taken from

and old formula 5000 belonging

to Australian racer Warwick

Brown.

Clyde remembers the early

days of the Open Saloon Car Association

fondly. He and many

others had been racing in the

national open saloon class.

However, the class was

scrapped by Motorsport New

Zealand, leaving many drivers

who had invested in cars without

a class to compete in.

There were a lot of open

saloon cars which were left

redundant . . . so I, Ron McPhail,

Trevor Crowe and a few others

got together and set up OSCA

to allow those redundant cars to

race,” said Clyde.

“It was a lot of enthusiasts with

a passion for racing. It allowed

you to build your own car and

compete in it on a reasonable

budget.”

Now, 50 years on the class is

still going strong albeit with a

different look. However, this

weekend’s annual Skope Classic

meeting at Ruapuna will see the

best of the class from the 1970s

and 1980s celebrated.

The whole structure of the

class has changed because the

new drivers coming into it are

heavily into Japanese smaller

engines with turbochargers.

They’ve got them going really

well . . . but what made the class

so popular back in the day is

that they were all V8s. Everyone

wanted to come and see V8s,”

said Clyde.

“It’s good to see that the class

is coming back again with a new

breed of driver and a new breed

of car, but with the same level of

passion.”

The OSCA celebration will

also see the return of one of the

classes most dominant cars – the

first of two Trevor Crowe-built

V8-powered Toyota Starlets

which won the national title in

1981, 82, 84 and the 1985 Ashley

Forest Rallysprint.

The Starlet will be raced by

current owner Richard Quinn.

However, a reunion with its

original owner could be on the

cards.

Crowe.

Skoda Kodiaq RS draws on rally heritage

THERE’S NO denying sport

utility vehicles are the cars of

choice for today’s buyer. Sales

figures globally are heavily biased

in that direction.

The choice is overwhelming,

especially in the mid-size

sector. If family or recreational

requirements facilitate the

need for an SUV, but you want

something just a little bit different

in your purchase – something

biased towards sporty – then

Skoda has the car for you, the

Kodiaq RS.

The Kodiaq has been with

us for a year or two now, and it

lands here in three variants, an

entry-level model at $41,990, a

high-grade Sportline at $64,990,

and just recently an RS model has

joined the ranks. The RS sits at

$72,990 and is characterised by its

flashy looks, inside and out, and

high power driveline.

Herein lies a secret. Under

the bonnet sits a 2-litre diesel

engine, and while you wouldn’t

ordinarily expect diesel to be

the basis for performance, you

have to remember that Skoda,

in the past has had many sports

models with diesel engines, and

I can report that is a concept the

company does very well, even in

motorsport.

In the Kodiaq, the

turbocharged four-cylinder unit

pumps out 176kW and a feisty

500Nm at the bottom end. The

latter is the ingredient that makes

the RS so special, not only is the

specific output high, maximum

torque is available from 1750rpm

to 2500rpm, which is the area

where the engine wants to

constantly work.

As a result, there is dynamic

engine performance, midrange

boost will offer a 4.2sec

overtaking time (80-120km/h),

and an off-the-mark time of

7sec to make 100km/h from a

standstill.

Even if you aren’t in a hurry,

there is a constant willingness

from the engine that tantalises

the driver, and if you take into

account there is manufactured

exhaust sound which throbs

constantly, the RS is hard to drive

without wanting to give it some

freedom.

There are several drive modes,

and depending on which is

activated the exhaust sound can

be encouraged or left in a more

subtle tone. The Kodiaq is also

a pretty useful off-roader, there

are modes which channel power

more usefully through the fourwheel-drive

platform.

There is also another element

which adds spice to the

SKODA KODIAQ RS: Sporty variant with diesel engine.

the RS feels well attached to the

road, it is dynamic and forceful

when asked to respond.

This is all from a car which

has a vastly different role to play

as well, it is the quintessential

mid-size seven-seater that also

looks after its occupants in terms

of fitment and specification and

safety. At $73k it needs to be well

appointed, and I can report it

leaves little to chance.

It also has fuel economy on its

side, Skoda claims a combined

cycle average of 7.7-litres per

100km (36mpg).

It takes a very special car to

win the New Zealand Motoring

Writer’s Guild Car of the Year

Award and the Kodiaq took

honours for 2017.

Obviously, that recognition

speaks for itself, the RS adds

another ingredient into the

equation, it certainly captured my

attention with its performance,

economy yet practicality all

thrown in for good measure.

The TLC Realty experience

After 50 years selling

Christchurch property I

results with cost

effectiveness. Some

firms are charging at

exhorbitent levels.

Rhonda Tapp

Knowing what could happen if

you can’t complete a sale

Life can sometimes take an unexpected turn when you’re

buying a house. Knowing what could happen to your

deposit and sale and purchase agreement if your circumstances

suddenly change and you are unable to complete

the deal will leave you in a much stronger position.

There are many “what-ifs” to consider when buying a

home and I urge you to talk through your concerns with

your lawyer or conveyancer as soon as your circumstances

change,” says Real Estate Authority (REA) chief executive,

Kevin Lampen-Smith.

“A sale and purchase agreement is a legally binding

contract between you and the seller, which becomes

unconditional once the allocated time for meeting your

conditions has been reached,” says Lampen-Smith.

“Once the agreement for sale and purchase becomes

unconditional, then you not only don’t get your deposit

back, but also face the likelihood of having to purchase

the property – even if you can’t afford to – or having to

cancel the agreement and be sued for any loss the seller

suffers as a result of you failing to settle the sale. So, if your

circumstances suddenly change, you’ll need to speak to

your lawyer as soon as possible.”

Getting finances sorted to buy a property isn’t easy, but

understanding the different deposits when you buy a

house can help. There are two different kinds of deposits

– the deposit you pay when you make an offer and your

bank deposit.

A buyer will usually be required to pay a deposit when

the sale and purchase agreement is signed by both parties.

The deposit paid is often about 10 per cent of the total

price you are offering – you can negotiate a different rate

if you need to – and is usually held in a trust account

by the real estate agent. The real estate agent takes their

commission fee out of this amount when the agreement

becomes unconditional and the remaining balance goes

to the seller.

When you arrange a home loan with a bank, you must

have a certain amount of funds to use as a deposit – your

bank deposit. This deposit will more than likely be different

from the amount your sale and purchase agreement

Licensee Agent/Director

Trust in Trish

Licensed Agent REAA 2008

states that you must pay the seller. For example, your

bank may need you to have 20 per cent of the purchase

price available as a bank deposit in order to secure your

mortgage, even if you only have to pay the seller a 10 per

cent deposit.

“When drawing up a sale and purchase agreement, you

can include conditions of the sale, such as a title search,

valuation, LIM report, obtaining finance, obtaining insurance

and builder’s inspection,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Including conditions can really help – you can even

negotiate your sale and purchase deposit.”

“If you find that you need extra time to complete any

conditions of the purchase, you must speak to your lawyer

or conveyancer immediately. They will negotiate with the

seller through their real estate agent or lawyer or conveyancer,”

Lampen-Smith says.

“Any changes to the conditions will need to be added

to the sale and purchase agreement and signed off by you

and the seller. If your conditions are not able to be met, eg,

the building fails the property inspection, then you may be

able to cancel the agreement and then your deposit will be

refunded to you.”

“It’s very important that you speak to a lawyer before

finalising your offer conditions so that they adequately

protect you if something that you find out about the

property during the conditional period is not to your

satisfaction,” Lampen-Smith says.

There is potential that defaulting on a sale, because of

finances, could affect future borrowing. Talk this through

with your lawyer and it would also be wise to seek advice

from a qualified financial adviser. A financial adviser may

also be able to talk you through the pros and cons of income

protection insurance for situations such as sickness,

disability, unemployment and death.”

“In life, there are so many things we cannot be sure of,

but it’s always worth doing your homework and seeking

solid professional advice when purchasing a home.”

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

John’s latest

single carries

a strong

environmental

message

KIWI Country music recording artist,

John McCabe has just released another

single and this one carries a strong

environmental message. It’s called

‘Aotearoa I Love You’ and written about

concerns about our water quality.

Affectionately known as the Kiwi with

the “golden voice”, John McCabe was

born and raised in Oamaru and has been

performing since he was 12 years old.

John departed for Canada in 1981 and

quickly gained recognition touring with

his live band through several states of the

USA and Canada.

Returning to New Zealand some 13

years ago, John has been in demand,

performing regularly at Clubs, events and

private functions.

He has an impressive catalogue of

material with several more original

releases pending. Many of his songs have

been recorded in Nashville using

some of the very best record

producers and studios.

Under his own recording label,

Airedale Records Limited, his

songs are released in 243 different

territories world-wide which

includes radio station and music

download sites.

John appears at the Hornby

Club this Saturday night from

7.30pm.
