SPEED SKATER Ethan De

Rose will have a little bit of

extra baggage when he returns

home from the Winter Youth

Olympics in Switzerland.

The 17-year-old, who finished

year 13 at Shirley Boys’ High

School last year, led the charge

for New Zealand with a bronze

medal on the final day of

competition on January 24.

Competing in a mixed

nation team, De Rose looked

confident throughout the

knockout rounds, as his team

advanced to the bronze medal

race.

Motorists

ignoring

stop signs

concerns

resident

• By Matt Slaughter

LAWRY WOOTTON often

sees motorists running the stop

signs at the end of his street –

sometimes at speed.

The resident of Matlock St,

Woolston, says measures need to

be taken to make the stop signs at

the intersection of his street and

Randolph St safer.

The city council says this is not

a priority.

Said Mr Wootton: “We’ve had

a few accidents down the corner,

two major ones, actually, where

somebody had to be cut out of a

car a couple of years or so ago and

there was another car that went

through a house on the corner,

where children are.”

When these crashes happened

there was a give way at the end of

the street and this was replaced

with stop signs but these have been

ineffective, said Mr Wootton.

“I can see quite clearly from my

house the stop signs . . . I see on

an average, it would be a high 92

per cent of cars, they just amble

through stop signs, only a handful

actually stop,” he said.

Red zone idea for quake-damaged road

• By Louis Day

CITY COUNCILLOR Phil

Mauger has made a bid to get

parts of an earthquake-battered

road in the eastern suburbs

relocated to the red zone.

Cr Mauger said parts of New

Brighton Rd should be moved

30m to higher

ground in the

red zone away

from the Avon

River.

This makes

more sense than

Phil Mauger

the ongoing

patch-up costs

ratepayers face when the river

floods in high tides and heavy rain,

and damages the road, he said.

Cr Mauger said as a result of

his idea the city council put a $1

million planned maintenance

spend on New Brighton Rd

between Bower Ave and Wattle

Drive on hold.

Said Cr Mauger: “New

Brighton Rd should be moved

30m north up into the red zone

property. This would mean that

the new New Brighton Rd could

be constructed at a higher level

to avoid flooding then move the

stopbank back to cover old New

Brighton Rd.

“It is an insult to people in

the east’s intelligence to spend

a mill patching an old road that

will continue to flood when the

same money could be put toward

a new higher one that would be

much more suitable.”

Cr Mauger said relocation

of New Brighton Rd to red

zone land would be a priority

for himself and the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board he

sits on.

something that is buggered is

“Just slapping paint on something

City council head of transport

Richard Osborne said if New

Brighton Rd was to be relocated

the project would need to be

added to the next Long Term Plan

which will be reviewed next year.

In Brief

DOG KILLED IN CRASH

A dog was killed when a car

crashed and flipped on to its roof

on Wednesdy morning. Two

people were also injured in the

incident just after 9.10 on Travis

Rd, west of the Anzac Drive

roundabout. One was moderately

injured and another sustained

minor injuries.

RICHMOND ROAD WORKS

The full reconstruction of

Warden St between Petrie St and

Hills Rd, Richmond has begun.

This work will involve installing

new drainage, footpaths, road

pavements, kerbs and berms. It

will also involve the relocation of

services where necessary. The work

will be done in two stages with the

Petrie St to Chancellor St section

starting last month and set to be

finished in September. Chancellor

St to Hills Rd is scheduled to start

in September.

CULTURE GALORE 2020

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

will host its annual Culture

Galore event on Saturday,

February 22 at Ray Blank Park,

in a family atmosphere. The

Free refills

to combat

plastic waste

TAIORA QEII and South

Brighton Holiday Park are

amongst the Canterbury businesses

aiming to cut down

plastic pollution by providing

free water bottle refills.

They, along with Pioneer,

Graham Condon and Jellie Park

recreation and sport centres,

have joined the network of RefillNZ

stations.

RefillNZ is a non-profit organisation

that enlists hospitality

outlets around the country

to allow visitors to fill up their

reusable water bottles from the

tap for free.

It provides a poster and stickers

to participating businesses

letting people know that water

refilling is available on site. The

network also provides information

about the location of public

drinking fountains.

RefillNZ founder Jill Ford said

66 cafes, hotels, vineyards, i-sites

and other hospitality businesses

are now involved in the initiative

across Canterbury, including

The Store in Tai Tapu, and

Laneway Espresso on Durham St.

Three campaigners are

working for RefillNZ to

introduce new outlets to the

scheme with a goal of signing up

150 sites around the region this

year.

Borrowers rack up overdue

library book fees

• By Louis Day

LIBRARIES collected $315,916 in

fines for overdue, damaged and

lost books last year.

A staggering 4,734,658 books

were issued which is an increase

from the 4,664,676 books issued

in 2018 and $292,946 in fines

dished out in that year.

The city council currently has

$235,745 worth in outstanding

fines.

This comes as the city council

revealed the most issued book

of 2019 was British author Lee

Child’s Past Tense which is the

23rd book in the Jack Reacher

series. The crime thriller novel

series follows former American

military policeman, Jack Reacher,

who wanders throughout the

United States.

Child’s The Midnight Line,

which is the 22nd book in the series,

came in as the second most

issued book of last year.

Adults are charged 70c per day

for overdue books with a $21

maximum fine per item.

City council head of libraries

and information Carolyn

Robertson said the money from

fines was put into the libraries

general fund which helped offset

expenditure.

She said when an individual

with an adult membership returns

an overdue book to the

library, the fine is automatically

added to their membership record.

“If the fine is not paid within

one month, or the customer has

fines owing of $30 or more, then

the customer cannot borrow any

more items until such time the

fine is paid,” she said.

Ms Robertson said debt collection

agencies become involved

when fines exceed $30 and once an

item becomes 62 days overdue.

She said with lost or damaged

items individuals are charged the

total cost of the item, plus a $21

processing fee.

“A recovery fee is only charged

once an outstanding debt is

referred to a debt collection

agency.”

State of the art materials used at school

CATHOLIC Cathedral College’s

new office, administration and

classroom building is being

constructed using resilient,

sustainable systems, with timber

at its core.

Cross laminated timber,

known as CLT, forms the threestorey

$5.6 million building’s

structural framework and this is

just the beginning.

Catholic Cathedral College is

an integrated Catholic co-educational

secondary school. It was

founded in 1987 but its origins

go back more than 150 years.

The college is an amalgamation

of two schools – Sacred Heart

College for girls and Xavier College

for boys and today has a roll

of 460.

Catholic Education Office

manager Mike Nolan said the

urgent message of Pope Francis

relates to the need to care for our

common home.

“Cross laminated timber

brings a huge advantage to the

environment through efficient

application of the world’s most

sustainable, renewable, building

resource – wood. The primary

environmental benefit of this

type of construction, over a

more conventional steel and

concrete solution, is the reduced

greenhouse emissions associated

with the construction materials,”

he said.

CONSTRUCTION: Catholic Education Office manager Mike

Nolan and Catholic Cathedral College principal Tony Shaw in

front of a new cross-laminated timber school building being

constructed. ​

Timber construction materials

have lower embodied carbon

than traditional construction

materials, which is a measure

of the sum of all the emissions

generated during the manufacture

of the building products

and materials used in the new

building.

Wood takes in carbon dioxide

straight from the atmosphere

as the trees grow, resulting in a

small carbon footprint, whereas

steel and concrete have high

embodied carbon that cannot be

offset.

Said Mr Nolan: “Figures we

have received for a hypothetical

similar building using steel and

concrete on the level one and

level two floors, shows a net

increase of approximately 334

tonnes of carbon compared with

cross-laminate timber. Using

wood means a negative total

carbon footprint of 160 tonnes,

while steel and concrete would

add 174 tonnes to the environment.

“In simple terms it equates to

taking 110 standard cars off the

road for one year,” he said.

Work commenced on the new

WSP-designed building in July

and is expected to take a year

to construct. The building will

include a new administration,

reception, offices and staffroom

on the ground floor; four teaching

spaces and offices on the first

floor and the same on the second

floor.

The building will also feature

a heat recovery mechanical

ventilation system, low energy

lighting and elevator, and a high

rated thermal envelope reducing

the energy use of the building

when in operation.

Timber, in this application,

provides a resilient structural

solution, that is expected to sustain

minimal structural damage

following a major earthquake,

further adding to its sustainability.

“While the use of timber

in mid-rise commercial/

educational buildings is well

established in Europe, it is an

emerging technology type in

New Zealand, and we are excited

about timber’s resilience and

efficiency,” Mr Nolan said.

Expectations exceeded

•From page 1

He said the result exceeded his

own expectations.

“We all skated really well and

we’re so happy to come away with

a bronze medal. This was a huge

highlight, I definitely didn’t think

I’d end up with a medal so I’m

super stoked.”

De Rose combined with

Italian Thomas Nadalini,

Korean Min Seo and Great

Britain’s Olivia Weedon for the

medal.

He had been based in Calgary,

Canada since November training

in preparation for the Winter

Youth Olympics.

De Rose began speed skating at

age four.

He trains at the Canterbury

Alpine Ice Speed Skating Club

three times a week with coach

Ben Whiteside.

I've been running a bespoke software development company in

Christchurch since the end of 2018. One of my biggest struggles has always

been to find reliable and talented developers to help me with projects

when things get busy. I originally reached out to the team at Vision

College to do some mentoring. I mentioned my struggles and they put me

in contact with one of their students, Declan.

Declan has been such a help, his ability to be productive right

away and the ease in which he picked up new concepts was

impressive. It really is a testament to the fact that vision

college isn't just teaching specific technologies and theory,

but rather empowering their students to become lifelong

learners. In the software development industry, you never

stop learning. There is always something new and better,

and Declan has really proven himself more than capable of

keeping up. I look forward to a long term relationship with

Vision College and am already talking to another student

there to help more.

Call to lower speeds

•From page 1

Mr Wootton has seen

vehicles drive along Matlock

St, where the speed limit

is 50km/h, at 70km/h. He

said the street is narrow and

this is putting the lives of

pedestrians at risk, including

Linwood College students,

elderly people and mothers

with young children travelling

to kindergartens in the

area.

“It’s a very, very dangerous

situation on that corner,” said

Mr Wootton.

However, a city council

spokesperson said it has only

received two complaints

about cars speeding along

Matlock St in the last year

and there have been no

crashes reported in this time

period.

Mr Wootton has a list of

solutions he thinks would

make the stop signs at the

end of Matlock St safer

and he wants these to be

considered before someone is

injured or killed.

These solutions include

painting road markings

along the street which give

drivers better warning that

the stop signs are looming,

lowering the speed limit to

either 40km/h or 30km/h,

installing speed bumps or

speed cameras, or police

monitoring speeds in the

area more often.

Said a city council

spokesperson: “Traffic

calming measures such

as speed bumps could be

installed at the Matlock St/

Randolph St intersection,

but currently they would

not rank as a high priority

compared to locations with

higher crash rates. Lowering

the speed limit could be

considered in the future.”

CONCERNED: Lawry Wootton often sees cars running the stop signs

at the intersection of Matlock and Randolph Sts, Woolston.

Community boards cut back

on catering costs for meetings

• By Louis Day

THE MAJORITY of community

boards are cutting back on

catering costs following public

scrutiny last term.

The Coastal-Burwood Community

Board will go without

any catering this term following

“modest catering” last term.

Banks Peninsula 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,

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.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton,

has cut back its catering budget

again after coming under fire

mid-way through last term. It has

reduced its budget from $78 to

about $68 a meeting, it previously

sat at $174.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

will not have any catering

after a decision was made last

term to remove it.

However, Mr Filsell said

Fendalton-Waimari-Harewood

and Coastal-Burwood members

would still have access to a kitchenette

facility where they could

make their own tea and coffee

which would have no impact on

the catering budget.

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 supermarket as

opposed to a catering supplier,

bringing the budget to an estimated

$75 a meeting.

Papanui-Innes will spend a

maximum of $50 a meeting following

a decision to reduce costs

last term.

Grilled Chilean Beef Kebabs

with Chimichurri Sauce and

Coriander Rice

Makes 8 kebabs

Ingredients

1kg beef – tenderloin, ribeye

or sirloin, cut into 4cm cubes

(or substitute 500g button

mushrooms)

2 Tbsp oil

2 Tbsp lime juice, plus zest of one

lime

2 garlic cloves – finely minced

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp dried oregano or thyme

1 tsp cumin

1½ tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

Skewer additions: cherry

tomatoes, onion

Chimichurri Sauce

1 bunch coriander

½ cup olive oil

2 Tbsp lime juice

1 jalapeno (use less, or more if

you like)

½ cup chopped onion

1 garlic clove

½ tsp smoked paprika

½ tsp salt

Coriander Rice

2 cups water

1 cup rice, rinsed

pinch salt

¼ cup coriander- chopped

3 spring onions – chopped

1 lime

Garnish: lime wedges

Directions

Soak eight 25cm wooden skewers

in warm water.

Cut the beef into cubes and

place in a zip lock bag or in a

medium bowl.

Mix oil, lime juice and zest,

garlic, spices, salt and pepper in a

small bowl. Pour over the beef and

seal the bag, shaking and mixing

so all the beef is coated. Set aside.

Pre-heat a hotplate, BBQ or your

favourite skillet if it’s large enough.

In a medium pot, add water and

rice, bring to a boil. Cover, simmer

on low heat for 20min.

In the meantime, make the

chimichurri. Place all the ingredients

in a food processor, and

pulse repeatedly (10-15 times)

until the coriander and onion are

all minced well. It need not be

smooth, but more like the consistency

of pesto. Place in a small

bowl. Set aside.

Make the skewers alternating

beef, cherry tomato, onion slice,

then repeat until skewer is full.

3-4 pieces of beef on each skewer.

Grill the skewers over medium

high heat, rotating until meat

is nicely charred and cooked to

desired done-ness.

Place rice in a bowl, squeeze

with lime, and scatter the

coriander and green onions over

the top. Serve immediately.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

PEGASUS POST

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with

a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and

senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

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

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

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

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

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

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

balance. They teach a movement sequence

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

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

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

HIP PAIN

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated

than surgery. After only one treatment you

should know that it will work for you. Call

The secret is out!

OPEN DAY Sunday 9th

February 1pm – 3pm

“It’s all about location. Geraldine has everything

here for a wonderful, active lifestyle; we’re nestled

in a fabulous microclimate with easy access to parks

and river walks, and Geraldine township is a vibrant

community with art galleries, boutique shopping and

fantastic eateries, with a never-ending schedule of

music festivals, fetes, exhibitions and shows.”

If you’ve reached the point of wanting to simplify

your life, McKenzie Lifestyle Village should be on

your ‘must-see’ list.

NOW OPEN - One bedroom assisted care suites.

Offering independence with discrete help on hand.

McKenzie Lifestyle Village also welcomes subsidised

care providers, allowing you to remain independent.

At the heart of the village is the Leisure Centre - a

central point for entertainment and events, true

resort style facilities. Too often people tell us they

wish they’d made the decision to move here sooner,

just do it while you’re still independent and you

can enjoy everything that we have to offer. Whether

you’re more inclined to enjoy the company of others,

or prefer privacy and solitude - you’ll find your

perfect lifestyle here.

REAL ESTATE

Heavenly hideaway!

36a Heberden Avenue, Sumner

Auction: Thursday, 13 February 2020 (Unless Sold Prior)

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 2 car-garage

2 off-street carparks | Listing Number SM0300

Tucked away and private from the

road, this fabulous character home will

both delight and surprise.

Beautifully presented and renovated

the home is ready and waiting for a lucky

new owner.

Gorgeous freshly polished timber

floors throughout the living and dining

add a sense of warmth and with all day

sun the home is instantly inviting.

Both living spaces open to private

sheltered decks capturing both the

morning and late sun and providing an

idyllic spot for entertaining or simply

relaxing with a good book.

While modernised throughout, the

home retains the charm of the 1950’s era

with the wooden windows all double

glazed and there is current log burner

and floor mounted heat pump.

Outside is a gardener’s dream, easy

care but with established fruit and citrus

trees and raised vegetable plots and a

good sized garden shed. There is also

the added bonus of two garages with

automatic garage doors, one complete

with a new bathroom and separate

entrance. Great off street parking

provided through an automatic gate.

Properties of this quality are highly

sought in Sumner and this home enjoys

the enviable late sun, dual entry and

privacy, making it the ideal spot to call

home.

My motivated owners have loved their

many years here but a new adventure

awaits, so the home will be sold. Act

now!

Open Homes Wednesday, Saturday

and Sunday 11:00am - 11:45am.

See you at the open homes

Who we are

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

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

Monday to Friday, with rostered ‘On call’.

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