New airport security to watch

for drugs and terror threats

WATCHING: A new team of specialised behavioural detection officers will soon begin at Christchurch Airport in a bid

to identify signs of unusual and anomalous behaviour.

• By Sophie Cornish

SPECIALISED security officers

will soon patrol Christchurch

Airport to detect behaviours

which could indicate people

are carrying drugs or are a

potential terror threat.

The Aviation Security Service

is in the process of hiring a

team to work in the public and

passenger-only parts of the

terminal.

It comes after a successful

year-long trial at Auckland

International Airport.

The behavioural detection officers

watch for people showing

signs of unusual and anomalous

behaviour.

If they detect certain

behaviours, the officers then

engage with the individuals, to

ensure they have a legitimate

reason for being at the

airport and don’t pose a

safety threat.

Border agencies in other

parts of the world also

use behavioural detection

techniques.

Hospital

delayed

again after

fire system

problems

• By Sophie Cornish

CHRISTCHURCH Hospital’s

new $500 million building has

been delayed once again - this

time over fire protection issues.

The Hagley acute services building

was originally planned to

open in 2018.

A Ministry of Health spokeswoman

confirmed yesterday

handover of the 10-storey building

to the Canterbury District

Health Board will now take place

in the first half of this year, not

the first quarter, as previously announced

in November.

It will be at least the fifth time

the handover has been delayed.

Previously, CDHB chief

executive David Meates stated

it was “imperative” the building

was opened by this winter,

anticipating a shortfall of up to

100 beds.

Remediation work required for

the building’s passive fire systems

was a “major contributor” to the

most recent delay, a ministry

spokeswoman said.

Passive fire systems, also known

as passive fire protection are an

important component of fire protection

and safety and must meet

certain regulations.

PFP aims to contain fires and

slow their spread by using a range

of materials such as fire-resistant

walls, floors and doors.

A FLURRY of concern on

social media led to a man being

accused of taking potentially

inappropriate photos of school

children outside two Hornby

schools on Tuesday.

It was later discovered the man,

who had been taking photos of

students outside Hornby High

and Hornby Primary schools,

both on Waterloo Rd, was gathering

information for a bid to make

the road safer to cross.

The Waterloo Rd resident is

preparing to bring a case before

the city council in an effort to

make the road safer for students.

Both schools shared a Facebook

post which said “Suspicious

of Hornby High that after

school today there was a man

outside both of the schools taking

photos of the children crossing

the road. When approached

by the staff member, he quickly

disappeared. Please remind

your children about stranger

danger and to report suspicious

behaviour to an adult.”

A later update on the Greater

Hornby Residents Association

Inc Facebook page clarified the

incident and said the man was

“acting in the best interest of

the Hornby community.

“He apologies for any undue

concern caused and will soon

be talking to the schools asking

for their support for proposal to

council,” the post said.

Huge water use may

lead to restrictions

SOARING temperatures have

led to unsustainable water use in

Christchurch which could result

in water restrictions.

On Monday, more than 260

million litres of water were used

across the city, an average of

552-litres per person, resulting in

city council revealing the water

supply is under “extreme pressure.”

A similar amount of water

was used on Sunday when the

temperatures in the city peaked

at 35 deg C.

The measurements are the

highest recorded for the city’s

water use in a decade, the city

council said yesterday, calling for

people to ease

back on their

water use in the

coming days.

City council

head of three

Helen Beaumont

Helen

Beaumont

said that level

of demand is

unsustainable.

“Our concern is that if the

demand for water doesn’t lessen

significantly, we won’t have

adequate flow and pressure in

some areas, which is also a big

concern when it comes to the

city’s preparedness for fighting

fires,” she said.

Yesterday, firefighters were

still battling to keep two fires in

North Canterbury under control

following a declaration of extreme

fire risk over the weekend.

“We don’t want to have to

impose water restrictions, but

if the demand doesn’t ease off,

we will have no choice. We need

people to stop using sprinklers

and garden irrigation systems

to water lawns and gardens.

If your garden needs watering,

use a hand-held hose and

water before 7am or after 9pm,

when it’s cooler. And please,

avoid watering lawns or grass

berms.”

Level four water restrictions,

the highest level, were introduced

in parts of Banks Peninsula

on Monday, after streams that

supply drinking water to Akaroa,

Duvauchelle and Takamatua

dropped suddenly.

Level 4 restrictions means all

use of water outside the house

must cease.

in brief

Tram crashes into

glass doors

Emergency services were kept

busy yesterday after three

separate crashes. A tram was

travelling through Cathedral

Junction between Gloucester and

Hereford Sts about 9.15am when

it hit glass doors, shattering

panels and blocking the tram

tracks. The five passengers

on board and the driver were

uninjured. About 10.30am a

crash between a motor-cycle and

a van in Burnside left two people

injured, one moderately. Soon

after at 10.45am, a car travelled

over a kerb and into Super

Liquor’s Ilam store on Waimairi

Rd. No one was injured.

NZTA warns of

registration scam

New Zealand’s Transport

Agency is warning of a new

email scam asking people to

renew their car registration

details and hand over personal

information. The sophisticated

scam uses an nzta.co.nz suffix,

which is very similar to the

NZTA suffix, nzta.govt.nz. It

takes unsuspecting people to

a webpage and asks for driver

licence details and banking

information. If an email was

genuinely sent from NZTA, it

would already include specific

vehicle details such as the

vehicle’s plate number, make and

expiring date of current licence.

Detection officers

used worldwide

• From page 1

The New Zealand programme is

the most developed in Australasia,

an Aviation Security Service

spokesman said. It has ongoing

support from a multinational

working group, including

behavioural science experts.

In the United States, there

has been controversy over the

programme, with some believing

it encourages profiling based on

race, ethnicity and religion.

A Department of Homeland

Security document leaked to US

media in 2015 revealed a checklist

of 94 behavioural indicators its

BDOs searched for, such as exaggerated

yawning, excessive throat

clearing, widely open staring

eyes, exaggerated emotions and

improper clothing attire.

Others included having a pale

face from recently shaving a

beard, excessive complaints about

the screening process, whistling

while approaching the screening

process, gazing downwards,

appearing not to understand

questions, exaggerated or repetitive

grooming gestures, rubbing

or wringing of hands, appearing

to be in disguise and arriving late

for a flight.

An Aviation Security Service

spokesman said its BDOs would

never make assessments based

on the race, gender, or physical

appearance of passengers.

Due to security implications,

the spokesman was unable to

say what behavioural indicators

might be searched for at New

Zealand airports.

“Our officers understand that

flying and navigating airports can

at times be a stressful experience

for travellers, so they take that

into account and look for a wide

range of anomalous behaviour

which you wouldn’t normally expect

to see in an airport setting,”

he said.

The successful trial at Auckland

International Airport led to the

permanent establishment of an

Auckland team.

The team successfully

identified a range of people

exhibiting suspicious behaviour

who were of concern to law

enforcement agencies. These

people included an outgoing

passenger who was trying to

travel with more than 500

credit cards, and others trying

to carry significant amounts of

undeclared cash, as well as illegal

drugs.”

Contractor now fixing

incredibly disappointing. Not just

the board, the public and staff, we

are all in this together, it’s everyone’s

Board member James Gough

said the recent delay was a

“hugely disappointing scenario.”

Due to a combination of

factors, including population

growth, Mr Meates previously

said the new build will not

increase overall patient capacity.

While already operating

under “significant capacity

winter, being the busiest period

PEOPLE CAN now get alerts

directly to their mobile phones

if there are increased reports of

crime in their area.

Using information provided

by police, Gets Ready, an online

database recognised by Civil

Defence can be used by district

councils and neighbourhood

support groups to share information

and warnings during

emergencies.

The purpose-built web system

allows residents to securely

record their contact details, and

any special needs, resources and

skills they want to share, to help

their local community during

an emergency.

But more recently, the database

is being used to alert those

who have registered, about

increased crime in their neighbourhoods,

also known as ‘risk

location updates.’

The information is provided

by police, based on reports they

have received.

On Tuesday, Addington residents

on the database received a

text or email telling them their

area had been a hot spot for car

theft recently.

“In the last week there has

been a high concentration of

unlawful motor vehicle takes

in the Addington area. All have

Four vehicles were targeted in one

night in a public car park, and

four vehicles were taken on separate

occasions while parked on

the road. Seven of the nine takes

occurred on Monday and Tuesday

evening,” the update said.

Yesterday, police said it was

Plan to make

intersection

safer on hold

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PLANS TO transform the city’s

fourth most dangerous junction

into a T-intersection to reduce

crashes has been put on hold.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board has postponed

making a decision on making a $1

million safety upgrade to the Ilam/

Riccarton/Middleton Rd intersection.

It comes after city council staff

presented a detailed report to

the board last week requesting it

endorsed its preferred design of restricting

the use of Middleton Rd.

This would be by changing access/egress

to left in, left out, and

changing Ilam Rd and Middleton

Rd to a T intersection.

As of June last year, 40 crashes

with varying degree of injury had

been reported at the intersection

since 2011 making it the fourth

most dangerous in the city.

The decision to defer making any

calls on making safety improvements

follows concerns the three

newly-elected board members did

not have a strong enough understanding

of the issue.

Board member Mark Peters

called for the report on the

intersection to “lay on the table”

until the board had received

another briefing by city council

staff.

found one in three people were

not recycling properly.

A team of four has begun visually

inspecting the contents of recycling

bins put out for kerbside collection

as part of the city council’s efforts to

improve recycling habits.

While about two-thirds of people

are clearly making an effort to

recycle properly, about one-third

Said city council solid waste manager

Ross Trotter: “The team has

found nappies, food waste, blinds,

and even hedgehogs in the recycling

bins, which is just unacceptable.

The yellow bins are for specific

household recyclable items and we

will not tolerate them being used

for general rubbish.’’

The only items that belong in

the yellow bin are cardboard, aluminium

cans, clear and coloured

glass bottles, metal tins, plastic

containers, aerosol cans, paper,

SUMNER HAS been hit by

a strange crime wave – and

the culprit is not pussyfooting

around.

Jasper the cat lives on Wiggins

St and has been stealing items

from houses as far as two blocks

over from his home.

The one-year-old male burmese

has pinched items such as socks,

underwear, gloves, baby clothes

and swimming trunks, among

other items since before Christmas.

Owner Mette Kristiansen said

Jasper’s rampage started out at

home where he would take socks

off of the washing line and chew

them up.

But suddenly, clothing she did

not recognise started appearing

in the back hallway.

“To be honest it was quite

funny, it was amusing.”

Now, she is attempting to right

Jasper’s wrongs by returning the

stolen goods to their owners.

“As time has gone on I’ve

realised that I would really like

to find the people who own these

things. These things are not cheap

to buy and I’m sure these people

want them back.”

After Ms Kristiansen posted

about Jasper’s antics on the Sumner

GARY STEAD was reluctant

to take a “pre-planned” break

from the Black Caps but there

is nothing sinister about the

decision to sit out the one-day

international series against India.

New Zealand Cricket chief

executive David White has hit

back at stinging criticism of his

national coach after it was announced

that Stead would not be

at the helm of the Black Caps for

the three-match series against

Virat Kohli’s touring side – in

spite of the recent thrashing in

the T20 series, following the

3-0 sweep in the test series in

Australia.

The announcement led to an

outcry of disbelief, including

from former Black Caps captain

Jeremy Coney who labelled it

“ridiculous” and suggested Stead

find a job in a hardware store.

Addressing the media ahead

of the first ODI at Seddon Park

in Hamilton, White said that

while he “could understand the

passion,” the criticism of Stead

was unfair and that the decision,

taken by NZC, was an attempt to

hold onto Stead.

“Player and support staff

workload is a big issue in international

cricket. We lost our

last coach Mike Hesson [who

resigned suddenly in June 2018]

to workload issues,” White said.

“We want to make this role

sustainable going forward and

that’s why Gary is having a week

off.”

White also revealed the decision

was taken some six months

ago and that Stead was reluctant

to take a break.

“It’s been a challenging time

for us but this planning was

done six months ago. If you go

back and look at the timing – the

World Cup, then a tour to Sri

Lanka, then a full tour by England,

then going to Australia and

then playing India now, it’s been

a big time commitment so we

identified this series,” White said.

“And it’s not only Gary. Chris

Donaldson [the Black Caps’

strength and conditioning

coach] is having the week off

this week and we’re constantly

rotating our support staff to

ensure that they manage their

workload.

NZC hits back at Stead criticism

OUTCRY:

David White

(above) is

backing the

decision for

coach Gary

Stead to sit

out the oneday

series

against India.

“Of any sport in New Zealand,

cricket has the most demands

for time. These guys are away

from home for a long time and

we must manage their workload.”

Prioritising the T20 World

Cup later this year, as well as the

new Test Championship, was

also a consideration in the timing,

said White.

“For this Indian tour we’ve

prioritised preparing for the T20

World Cup . . . so the five T20s

were a priority and obviously the

Test Championship is a priority.

“When we did the schedule

some six months ago, Gary has

always been a reluctant coach

to have a break. The man works

very, very hard so as managers

we must manage his workload

or we will have burnout. As you

know, coaching at international

level is one of the hardest jobs in

cricket.” – New Zealand Herald

Diplomat warns travel ban may

Canterbury

business

could suffer

• By Louis Day

CHRISTCHURCH’S leading

Chinese diplomat is warning the

Government’s travel ban from

China could damage trade and

tourism in the future.

The travel ban came into

full effect on Monday, placing

temporary restrictions on all

foreign nationals travelling from

or transiting

through China in

an effort to stop

the coronavirus

spreading to New

Zealand.

Chinese

Consul General

in Christchurch

Wang Zhijian

said the ban was

Wang

Zhijian

an “overreaction” which could

harm business between the two

countries in the future.

“We believe this kind of ban

will not do good to the relationship

between China and New

Zealand,” he told The Star.

“It could not only hurt the New

Zealand economy but also the

sentiment Chinese people hold

towards New Zealand.”

His calls have been echoed by

other Chinese diplomats in New

Zealand and Australia.

New Zealand Chinese ambassador

Wu Xi warned the ban

would have an impact on trade,

tourism and education.

Chinese Consul General in

Auckland Ruan Ping said the

Government’s decision could

have an impact on business

between the two countries in the

future.

Australian Chinese embassy

deputy head of mission Wang

Xining said measures in response

to the epidemic “need to be

reasonable.” He appealed for

compensation for travellers and

students affected by the lockdown.

ChristchurchNZ chief executive

Joanna Norris said the full

economic impact of the travel

ban was not yet known.

However, she expected there

to be a significant impact on

tourism and visitor spending in

Canterbury and the South Island

while travel restrictions and reduced

air services were in place.

“In February and March 2019,

approximately $25-30 million in

exports left Christchurch by air

for China,” she said.

Christchurch’s main exports to

China last year were fish and seafood

(about $10 million), cereals

and flour (about $2 million) and

machinery (about $14 million).

From January to November last

year, Chinese tourists spent $171

million, in 2018 they spent $222

million and in 2017 $196 million

in Canterbury.

In February last year, a total of

8800 Chinese tourists spent $40

million.

ChristchurchNZ expects a 24

per cent reduction in tour group

numbers this month due to all

Chinese groups being cancelled

this month.

Canterbury Employers’ Chamber

of Commerce chief executive

Leeann Watson did not think

the ban would have any lasting

impact on China’s relationship

with Christchurch.

“It will have an impact on our

economy, will it have an impact

on our relationship with China?

I don’t think so, I would like to

think our relationship is bigger

than that,” she said.

harm future

Beijing is ‘dead quiet’

TRAVEL BAN: A China Southern Airlines B787 at

Christchurch Airport.

However, Mr Zhijian said it

“will take some time” for China’s

relationship with New Zealand

and tourism to return to what it

was before the ban.

China Southern Airlines

has suspended its direct daily

flight between Guangzhou and

Christchurch from February 10

to March 28.

“This month is the peak

season for Chinese tourists

coming to Christchurch. Not all

of them will decide to come back

next year.

“Some of them will have suffered

a lot from economic loss, it may be

difficult for them to come back.”

Mr Zhijian was also concerned

for students stranded in China

from the travel ban.

A Canterbury University

spokeswoman said it had identified

about 500 students who had

been impacted by the travel ban.

“We have emailed all of our

international students directly

and asked for details of their

situation, so we can use this

information to keep them

updated and support them

through online enrolment and

online learning if they are delayed

in arriving in time for semester

1, which begins on February 17.

This number may increase as we

receive further information from

students,” she said.

A MAN who left his wife in

Beijing and brought his children

back to Christchurch to get them

out of harm’s way says there are

signs the deadly coronavirus

outbreak is getting worse.

Kelvin Gin arrived in

Christchurch at the weekend

with his three children and said

China’s once thunderous capital

city had been “dead quiet” in

recent weeks.

“We sat there just twiddling

our thumbs for a while and

then it just started to get worse

and worse,” Mr Gin told the NZ

Herald.

There were just little signs in

Beijing and we said: ‘Maybe we

should take the kids out’.”

The former Colmar Brunton

employee said the numbers of face

masks were slowly dwindling and

he hadn’t seen any hand sanitiser

in around three weeks.

In the local supermarkets,

occasionally there would be a

shortage of bread or the price of

products would be inflated, with

apples reaching prices of $10-$20.

“Those signs were around and

then you start reading the media

and you start thinking maybe

we should step out of this for a

while,” Mr Gin said.

Other ominous signs included

walking past train stations and

bus stops to see people constantly

ESCAPE: Kelvin Gin and his children on their way to Beijing

International Airport.

checking their temperatures.

The death toll from viral coronavirus

outbreak which began in

Wuhan, China, had by yesterday

afternoon risen to almost 500 and

there have been more than 20,000

confirmed cases world-wide.

Most of the deaths had been in

central Hubei province, where

illness from the new virus was

first detected in December.

But given the circumstances,

the Beijing local government

had done a “great job” to try and

manage the situation as best they

could, Mr Gin said.

Measures included limiting

inner-city travel and closing

down almost everything, apart

from the odd supermarket.

More or less a trailing spouse,

Mr Gin said the family moved to

China from Jakarta at the start

of 2020 to start a new chapter of

their lives.

His wife, an Irish national, was

working for a non-profit organisation

in Beijing and

while she could travel to New

Zealand despite being a foreign

national, Mr Gin thought she

would stay.

“We were planning for her

to come over at some stage but

that’s been looked over, but

there is a caveat in that where

immediate family can join you,”

he said.

Confidence Instead of

Overreaction in Combating

New Virus

The outbreak of pneumonia

caused by the novel coronavirus

has drawn worldwide attention.

I still recall how China tackled

the challenge of SARS epidemic

17 years ago, and this time China

is more experienced and better

prepared.

China has full capability to defeat

the disease. With its world leading

medical forces and technological

foundation built up over the past

decades as well as the advantage in

mobilizing resources nationwide

rapidly, China has not only

successfully contained outbreaks

of several severe epidemics but

also aided West Africa in their

fight against Ebola. This time, with

instructions from President Xi

Jinping, all of China is in action,

demonstrating unprecedented

speed, strength and effectiveness.

Many measures taken have

extended beyond requirements of

World Health Organization and

are showing positive effects. It is

unprecedented in human history

to lock down a megacity with over

10 million people as epicenter of

disease. So far 524 patients have

been cured including 80-yearolds,

and the number cured has

exceeded death toll. WHO has

fully endorsed China’s decisive

measures and timely responses.

China has also been conducting

international cooperation

in an open, transparent and

responsible manner. We identified

the pathogens and shared its

sequence with the WHO and

other countries at earliest time,

which has resulted in the rapid

development of diagnostic tools.

The Chinese government has

attached great importance to the

safety and wellbeing of foreign

nationals in China, and worked

hard to look after them. Currently,

foreigners including New Zealand

citizens in Wuhan and other cities

have sufficient access to daily

necessities and medical care.

In case of crisis, keeping a cool

head is crucial. There is no need

to panic and we have nothing to

fear but fear itself. If abiding by

medical advice, the likelihood of

infection is very low. The epidemic

PAID ADVERTISING CONTENT

situation should be assessed

in an objective, just, calm and

reasonable way. There are so far

144 cases in 23 countries outside

China without causing large-scale

outbreaks or death toll. Humanto-human

transmission has only

been found in 3 countries outside

China. The spread momentum

of the virus is being curbed

within and outside the country.

As Health Minister David Clark

pointed out, probability of largescale

outbreaks in New Zealand is

unlikely.

The determination of a Public

Health Emergency of International

Concern (PHEIC) is mainly to

caution those countries with

weaker health systems. New

Zealand as a member country

of OECD, has mature epidemic

response system and protective

capabilities. Apart from taking

necessary precaution, there is no

need to overreact. WHO does not

recommend any travel or trade

restriction on China. If free flow of

personnel or goods were restricted

between our two countries, not

only China but New Zealand

will also suffer heavy economic

losses and friendly ties among our

peoples may be hampered. We

should guard against overreaction

that may result in more negative

spillover effects.

China is strengthening

collaboration with the

international community

including New Zealand to

safeguard global public health

security. Our Consulate General

is also keeping close contacts

with local DHBs. Throughout

human history, no country has

been defeated by any epidemic

let along the human race. At

the age of globalization, only

through enhancing international

cooperation could we cope with

non-traditional threats like

epidemics effectively. Under

current circumstances, confidence

is more precious than gold. We

believe the world could prevail

over the new disease very soon

with joint efforts.

Consul General in Christchurch

Flexible barriers

‘a success story’

• By Sophie Cornish

LESS THAN a year after

they were installed, flexible

barriers on a high-crash

road have been labelled a

“success story.”

Six cars have been caught

by the barriers on Queen

Elizabeth II Drive between

Burwood and Innes Rds.

Between January 2008

and December 2017, there

were two deaths and 13

serious injuries following

vehicle collisions on the

stretch of road.

In July last year, the barriers,

which are designed

to ‘catch vehicles’ that leave

their lane, were installed

along the stretch of road,

as part of a $2.5 million

New Zealand Transport

Agency road safety project.

Since then, the barriers

have been struck six times,

PARTS OF Summit Rd

could be closed at night

following the tragic death

of two sisters on the road

last year.

Seventeenyear-old

Alexander

died in the

November.

Her sister

Sunmara

died on

her 16th

birthday in hospital after

suffering critical injuries

and extensive burns from

the crash.

Their father, Jason

Alexander, delivered a

petition to the city council

asking it to make the road

safer last month.

City councillor and

chairman of the urban

development and transport

committee Mike Davidson

told The Star closing parts

of the road at night could

be a possibility.

“Closing the area

ditch crashes,” an NZTA

spokeswoman said.

When a vehicle hits a

barrier, the wire cables flex,

slowing down the vehicle

and keeping it upright during

and after a collision.

The barrier absorbs the

impact, reducing the force

on the people inside the

vehicle.

Currently, there are

no plans to permanently

remove the barriers.

“However, on January

20, construction began on

a 500m section of the road

with barriers to make it

could be an option. But I

personally think we need

to look at the whole of

Summit Rd because the

stretch has parts, which

if driven at speed can be

dangerous,” he said.

Cr Davidson said any

changes to Summit Rd

would require public

consultation.

“We have not made

any decisions to go into

consultation to close it

but it needs to be part of

discussions.”

The city council

consulted on the Summit

wider, after the originally

constructed width was

found to be slightly short

of the planned width.

There is no cost to the

Transport Agency for this

remedial work, it is covered

in the contract with

the contractor,” an NZTA

spokeswoman said.

Prior to the barrier

installation, NZTA worked

with Fire and Emergency

New Zealand and other

stakeholders to allow for

the appropriate width for

emergency vehicles to

reach crash sites.

A SIX-YEAR-OLD girl who went

to the United States for lifesaving

cancer treatment has tragically

died.

Nora Guise was diagnosed

with Hepatoblastoma, a rare

cancer of the liver, that was also

found to be in her lungs.

She exhausted all of the curative

treatments available in New

Zealand but was accepted into

a CAR-T cell trial in the United

States that could be her last

chance for a cure.

The community helped to fundraise

more than $198,000 for

the experimental treatment.

It works by lowering the white

blood cell count with lymphodepleting

chemotherapy and then

inserting the CAR-T cells, which

boost the white blood cells back

up.

Nora and her mother Elyse,

father Rohan and three-year-old

sister Thea returned from Texas

in mid-December after spending

five weeks there getting treatment.

Nora, who lived in Rolleston,

was diagnosed in August 2018

and the cancer later spread to

her lungs.

In November 2018 she underwent

major surgery to remove

60 per cent of her liver and the

OPINION

N G Smith writes about

the changes to Victoria

St – When will this council

come to grips and start listening

to businesses and people who

frequent this area.

Destroy parking, create an unuser-friendly

environment and

you will have a parallel disaster

such as St Asaph and Manchester

Sts.

When will they learn that it’s

ratepayers’ cash they waste, and

the stupid expenditure is not the

gnomes within council to waste.

Why are our elected (so called)

councillors allowing this flagrant

stupidity at our expense.

The huge rate increases should

be enough to galvanise their

interest but as long as their remuneration

continues to grow they

have no reason to govern on our

behalf.

They should all be named and

shamed on how they vote on

matters like this.

Bronwen Summers writes

about last week’s article

about catering costs at

community board meetings

– It is outrageous the

amount of money that is spent

on catering at community board

meetings.

If these meetings go over

lunchtimes then surely, like the

general public, members need to

take their own lunch.

Morning and afternoon teas

should consist of packets of biscuits

and, or crackers and cheese.

OUR SOCIETY is as violent as

ever.

Week in, week out we read of

gang violence – shootings, beatings

of rivals and in extreme

cases murder and executions.

These crimes generally have

little impact on Joe Public.

But two cases this week, one

in Christchurch, the other in

Lower Hutt underlines how

easily some are willing to dish

out brutal violence to innocent

people.

Last year, a 59-year-old met

a woman online. Nothing

unusual in that. But what he

didn’t know was that she was a

‘honeytrap’. He was being set up

by people connected with the

woman.

His house was broken into,

a car, motor-cycle and laptop

stolen. But the offenders didn’t

get everything they wanted. The

following day, the 59-year-old

was at home when a car turned

up.

He tried to get away, but

to no avail. He was grabbed,

severely beaten and more items

were taken from the house.

The trio were later arrested and

this week were sent down for

lengthy jail terms.

In Lower Hutt, this week

23-year-old Emilio Richard

Mac Tanirau Whaanga pleaded

guilty to manslaughter after

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Society’s needless violence

killing a complete stranger with

a headbutt in a supermarket car

park.

His 55-year-old victim had

taken a day off work to take his

disabled mother to various appointments.

The disabled car parks were

full, so he pulled into one that

is marked for parents who have

children with them.

Tanirau Whaanga, who has

a record for violence, had his

partner and young child with

him, took exception.

From the

editor’s desk

Barry Clarke

The victim appeared to be

trying to explain to Tanirau

Whaanga there were no disability

car parks, he had a mobility

sticker and his elderly mother

was with him.

It didn’t wash with Tanirau

Whaanga, who closed the space

between them, before changing

his weight onto his right

foot and unleashing a massive

headbutt.

The victim was instantly

knocked out and fell to the

ground. Tanirau Whaanga

turned away and followed his

partner and child into the supermarket.

Two minutes later he exited

the supermarket but his car

was blocked by a taxi and he

couldn’t drive off. Police arrived

soon after and he was arrested.

The victim was taken to

hospital with multiple skull

fractures, and was taken off

life support the following

day.

Tanirau Whaanga later told

police he had “flinched,” the

victim had walked into his head

and he thought the victim was

going to attack him.

Yeah right.

But he did regret what happened

according to the police

summary of facts in court,

“questioning that it would impact

on his future employment

prospects.”

What about the 55-year-old,

Tanirau Whaanga?

Wednesday 12 February


PRIOR TO last week, I’d

managed to contain the majority

of Vittoria’s toddler tantrums to

within the realm of my house

or the house of a relative (or an

aeroplane when she was four

months old, but that was a long

time ago).

Now, I know the feeling of

having complete strangers look at

you in horror, because they likely

believe you are either kidnapping

a toddler, or murdering it.

Vittoria’s Nan overnighted at

our place last week to both make

it easier to get to her work shifts

and to allow me to go to dragon

boat training by looking after

Vittoria.

In an effort to repay my mum’s

help I offered to play driver on

some errands for her.

To my eternal gratitude, my

mum’s a keen bargain hunter,

so while we were on the errands

in Hornby we, of course, had

to stop in to check for some at

Dress-Smart.

I’d not taken Vittoria to a mall

since she’s been at full toddler

stage, so I was a little apprehensive.

Her behaviour put me in a

false sense of security though.

She was happy to hold my hand

while walking or just play around

the little rides you find in malls.

Particularly a Spot ride, that

yellow dog is a clear favourite

book character currently.

So following her around as she

explored while Mum looked for

what she needed seemed a good

things went downhill.

plan – until Vittoria saw the ice

cream shop.

Oh Lord, why do they always

put pictures of strawberries at

toddler height on those things?

As soon as she saw it she made

a beeline through the legs of

the good folks waiting on their

chilled treat to point at a picture

of strawberries and ice cream

and proudly say “storbies” with a

huge grin on her face.

It was then that I made the fatal

error of saying “no love, we’re

not having ice cream.”

My face must have been as red

as those damn strawberries as

I plucked the screaming ball of

rage that had replaced my daughter

from the front of the shop.

I dared not look at the faces of

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Handling screaming in public

VITTORIA

& Matt

the other adults, but in my mind

they were very disapproving.

And I’m sure the looks of horror

on the faces of the people I

passed while carrying a screaming

toddler they didn’t know was

mine around the mall in an effort

to calm her were very real.

She was top of the lungs going

for it. Writhing, kicking,

throwing her shoes around and

trying to just leave with strangers

on the lift. I fully doubt they

wanted to share the lift with her

though, they looked just as put

off as everyone else. I think, eye

contact was not something I was

keen on.

So after what felt like an hour of

this, I get a phone call from mum

saying she was done and wanted

to meet up. To get ice cream.

Grandparents eh? So after all

that, Vittoria got her strawberry

ice cream and I got a lesson in

how much perceived looks of

disapproval can make you sweat.

I also got ice cream, which took

the edge off a little.

Few tickets left for concert

Tram shelter

repairs complete

• By Jess Gibson

THE WAIT is finally over for

Redcliffs residents wanting to

see the Moncks Bay tram shelter

safe and open to the public.

Repairs to the 86-year-old

structure on Main Rd are now

complete after being closed off

since December 2018 due to

earthquake risk.

Redcliffs Residents’ Association

secretary Pat McIntosh said

she was “delighted” the historic

structure has reopened.

Members had been frustrated

over the length of time it took

city council contractors to finish

repairs.

“I’m pleased to hear that it’s

done and that the obstructions

will be removed to it can be

used again,” Ms McInstosh said.

Work was initially meant to

be finished before the end of

September, however, the city

council delayed pushed out the

completion date until the end of

December, and then to the end

of January.

SELWYN SOUNDS looks set to

The March 7 festival will see

acts including Icehouse, 10cc,

said he expects a capacity crowd

of 10,000 people will be enjoying

the music, food trucks and

stocked bar on the day.

Said Mr Parlane:

“We’re into our last

lot of tickets at the

will be a sell-out before

the event, I’m positive

of that.

“This certainly will

be the summer concert

of 2020 for Canterbury.”

He is looking forward

to seeing a high calibre of

acts on the day.

“To be honest, I’m looking

forward to seeing them all. I have

a real fondness for Icehouse, I’ve

seen them three or four times

live and they just are an outstanding

unit, very professional

and their stage show is pure

quality from everything that

they do.

“I’m also looking forward to

said Mr Parlane.

Mr Parlane said

preparation for the event is

almost finished.

“It’s going to be a fun day.

People coming in and getting

Let’s stalk about celery

• By Ian Knott

I dread to think how

many bunches of celery

get thrown out following

impulse buys and good

intentions of healthy

eating. But celery needn’t

be only for snacking on

raw with dips or chopped

and thrown into stews,

there are many uses for

this marvelous vegetable

that you may not have

associated it with

CELERY CORIANDER

COCKTAIL

Ingredients

30ml Absolut Citron vodka

3 Tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice

2 Tbsp simple sugar syrup

½ stalk of celery

¼ cup chopped coriander

2 Tbsp soda water

ice

Directions

In a mixing glass or pitcher,

combine celery and coriander

and muddle together with vodka,

lime juice and simple syrup.

Pour through a fine mesh

strainer into a glass filled with ice

and top with soda water.

Celery Coriander Cocktail

Garnish with celery greens and

coriander, maybe even a lime

wedge.

SIMPLE CELERY SOUP

Ingredients

2 Tbsp olive oil, or butter

1 onion, diced

4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

6 cups celery, sliced thin. Save

some leaves for garnish

2 cups potatoes, sliced into 1cm

rounds. Use a white fleshed, general

purpose potato.

4 cups veggie or chicken stock

1 cup water

1 bay leaf (optional, remove before

blending)

1 tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

⅛-½ tsp cayenne, to taste

Simple Celery Soup

Directions

Heat the oil in a big pot over

medium high heat, add the onion,

stirring occasionally, letting the

onions get golden, about 5min.

While the onions are cooking,

roughly chop the garlic, celery

and potato. When the onions

are golden add the garlic and

stir 1-2min until fragrant. Add

the celery, potato, stock, water,

bay leaf, salt, pepper,

and cayenne. The liquid

should just cover the

veggies.

Cover, bring to a

rolling boil, turn heat

down and simmer gently

until the potato is tender,

about 10min.

Turn heat off, remove

bay leaf and add the fresh

herbs and just wilt them

(so not to lose the vibrant

colour)

Using a stick blender

blend until very silky

smooth – or if using

a regular blender, let

cool before blending in smaller

batches.

Blend well, a full minute, until

herbs are fully blended, creating a

vibrant coloured soup. For extra

“green” colour, add a handful of

raw spinach if you like, or more

fresh parsley. Place it back in the

same pot over low heat. Stir in

your choice of sour cream, or any

of the other options.

WHAT GROWS outside

is as important in creating

pleasant outdoor living

areas as any decking,

paving and fencing.

In fact, trees, shrubs and

vines can convert the most

pedestrian of back yards to

an entertaining space.

You need a little forward

planning to create a green

and peaceful exterior

space – unlike a kitset park

bench, a vine hung patio

wasn’t built in a day.

But you needn’t spend

a lot on plants – most

climbing plants and many

perennials and shrubs will

grow from cuttings which

can be begged from the

gardens of friends.

Donations of this kind

are a much more affordable

way to establish a

garden than simply buying

up large.

Beautify concrete and

paved areas

You can create the illusion

of several square

metres of garden space

without the associated

weeding and cultivating –

think outside the square

into pots, containers and

hanging baskets.

Provided the plant

doesn’t have a deep tap

root (kowhai for instance)

or a huge spreading root

system, it’ll grow in a

container.

And the container can

be anything, from a simple

do-it-yourself box made

of timber fence palings

to a concrete tub or even

plastic pots.

There are some affordable

and effective temporary

cover-ups and privacy

screens available to fill the

gap until nature takes over

and drapes your fence line,

deck uprights and pergolas

in clematis, wisteria, bougainvillea,

ivy geranium or

climbing rose.

Light your garden

By lighting up gardens,

pathways and barbecue

areas, you can extend the

amount of time you can

spend outdoors, and turn

backyards into evening

entertainment spaces.

Lighting manufacturers

now put a heavy focus

on exterior lighting for

barbecue areas, pathways

and patios.

Uplights, downlights

and backlights can subtly

emphasise all the best

features of the great

outdoors and the fittings

come in all styles for all

pockets.

Accessorise

The right furniture,

lighting, planters and

features can refresh and

reinvigorate even the most

modest outdoor spaces.

Most families start and

finish an interior remodel

before moving to an exterior

plan, often without

considering the relationship

between the two – a

big mistake.

Far better to think of

your deck or patio as an

extension of your home

and not as something

separate that only requires

attention in the spring and

summer months.

Accessorising requires

you think a little outside

the square by using

familiar objects in new

ways – a mirror for

example can make a stylish

addition to your patio or

deck by placing one in a

dark corner, creating space

and directing light to an

uninviting spot.

An old wheelbarrow

can be transformed into a

rustic planter.

An outdoor that flows

Just like indoors, you can

define outdoor relaxing

space with your “flooring’’.

The sitting and relaxing

area can be separated from

the garden by paving, or a

line of garden.

If you’re using a lot of

paving or lawn and you

want to continue the flow

while still defining the

space, a step up or down

will create the illusion for

you.

Blend indoor and

outdoor areas with the

same flooring materials if

possible, or similar tones.

If you step from carpeted

lounge to paved outdoor

space, particularly through

glass doors, you can

accentuate the flow of the

eye by extending exterior

paving just inside the door

of your home and joining

to carpet.

SENIOR LIVING

A natural remedy

for good health

Black Seed oil is often referred to as

The Remedy for all things.” The Prophet

Muhammad called it “a remedy for every

illness except death.” Black seed oil is

extracted from black cumin seeds (Nigella

sativa) and has been used therapeutically

for over 3,300 years, since its first reported

discovery in King Tutankhamun’s tomb.

For thousands of years it has been used by

practitioners of Ayurvedic and Chinese

traditional medicine for an endless

list of conditions, from migraines to

diabetes and cancer. Since 1959 scientists

have carried out over 600 peer review

studies proving many of its remarkable

health benefits. It has been shown to

be medicinally very effective against

various illnesses including: cardiovascular

disorders, diabetes, inflammatory

conditions, infertility, neurological and

mental illness as well as various infectious

diseases due to bacterial, fungal, parasitic,

and viral infections. According to the

“National Institute of Health” superbugs

are becoming a significant public health

risk as they are virtually impossible to

treat. In the USA an increasing number

of hospital patients are developing

infections from superbugs with more

than 90,000 of these patients dying every

year. Researchers at Jawaharlal Nehru

Medical College wanted to confirm the

benefits of black seed oil against these

superbugs compared with common

antibiotics. According to the study, “out

of 144 strains of superbugs tested, most

of which were resistant to a number of

antibiotics, 97 were inhibited by the black

seed oil. Microbes or micro-organisms

have been linked to most disease and

there are few things known to be as

effective against them as the black seed

oil. Croatian scientists studying mice with

cancers found that the phytochemicals in

black seed oil resulted in a 52% decrease

in tumor cells. Diabetes drugs can have

numerous side effects but research by the

“Indian Council of Medicine” found that

black seed oil helps regenerate pancreatic

cells and decreases elevated serum glucose

in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Corolla wagon fills void in shrinking market

I’M A BIG fan of station wagons,

especially those that are small in

stature.

However, it’s part of the new

car market in New Zealand that

has shrunk to almost nothing

thanks to the demand for sport

utility vehicles. Sure, Ford has a

Focus wagon, Hyundai has an i30

wagon, and there’s a smattering

of continental models – Skoda’s

Octavia Scout and BMW’s Active

Tourer. As an aside, Holden has

an Astra wagon here, but it is due

to be discontinued.

However, you can count on

Toyota to keep the market ticking

over with steady sales, its Corolla

wagon has served the company

well and it captures my attention,

it’s a car I could certainly live

with, I don’t need a sport utility

vehicle, but I do like a car that

offers load space greater than a

standard boot.

The entire Corolla range has

just had a bit of a refresh and a

new generation wagon has been

added, it’s the first in the latest

Corolla series and has been built

with all the traditional Corolla

values, it is state-of-the-art underneath

and it looks fabulous.

The only real difference between

the hatch/sedan variants is that

the wagon doesn’t get the 2-litre

engine, nor is it available as a

hybrid. The wagon gets a 1.8-litre

engine, but that matters little, and

if you take into account that the

engine is larger than the previous

model (1.5-litre), the ingredients

are in place for capable, practical

motoring.

The evaluation car was carrying

additional Toyota Racing

Development parts, a body kit,

black wheels, and with TRD

appointments it looked great

and certainly generated a lot of

interest during the week it was in

my care.

Otherwise, the wagon is available

in only one specification at

$29,990. Unlike previous generation

models, there is no manual

gearbox option, it arrives with

continuously variable automatic

transmission only. I believe that is

value-packed buying considering

you’ve got that healthy cargo load

section – 392-litres up to 800-litres

with the rear seats folded flat.

For that money it also gets

a suite of Toyota Sense safety

technologies, easily earning it a

five-star Australasian New Car

Assessment Program safety rating.

Items fitted for comfort and

convenience are generous given

its budget price.

Powering the Corolla wagon is

a four-cylinder engine of 1798cc.

Toyota rates it with 104kW and

171Nm, available collectively at

6100rpm and 3900rpm.

TOYOTA COROLLA WAGON: Versatile load carrying section.

If these figures look familiar,

they are much the same as those

from Corollas of previous eras.

They are healthy outputs and

more than capable of fulfilling the

wagon’s role, especially if you take

into account that at around 1300kg

the Corolla in this form isn’t

overweight, even with its 425kg

payload rating.

On the subject of figures, the

Corolla wagon returns hugely

respectable fuel usage statistics,

Toyota lists a combined cycle

rating of 6.8-litres per 100km.

Toyota also claims a 10sec standstill

to 100km/h acceleration time.

Drive is fluid through the

transmission, that’s the beauty of

CVT, it harnesses engine strength

without feel and gets about hauling

in acceleration seamlessly. There is

a sequential shift system which will

lock the gearing into any of seven

pre-set steps, and that has advantages

when travelling through

hilly sections or when slowing for

corners.

• Price – Toyota Corolla

wagon, $29,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4495mm; width, 1745mm;

height, 1460mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1798cc, 104kW,

171Nm, continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10sec

• Fuel usage – 6.8/100km

At highway speed the wagon

moves through the air quietly and

those on board have the benefit

of high comfort levels. The seats

have solid all round support with

cushions that are absorbent, yet

containing.

When presented with a quick

corner or two, its handling manners

are predictable with the essential

information projected back

through to the steering wheel.

Previous versions of the Corolla

wagon were sprung soft for the

Japanese domestic market. I’m

pleased to report Toyota New

Zealand has addressed the suspension

settings over the years and

the dampers are now set to more

of a medium setting through a

sophisticated fully independent

front-strut/rear wishbone suspension

system.

This is important for those who

will fill the cargo section, the

rear of the wagon feels taut and

securely fastened to the road. I’m

a big believer in independent suspension,

and full marks to Toyota

for building the wagon around

such a complex set-up.

Without the TRD wheels the

Corolla wagon rides on 15in

rubber. However, grip on the

TRD-spec model is enhanced

greatly with sport specification

17in Michelin tyres (225/50), they

have a strong tenure with the road

surface.

The wagon has certainly developed

the handling characteristics

of its hatchback and sedan stablemates,

it’s a car you can feel very

much at one with and can rest

assured it’s not going to present

any surprises, it is competent and

involving to be in, the driver is

sent all the right messages.

I applaud Toyota, both in Japan

and here. I’m pleased the wagon

is still available, it’s a no-nonsense

practical vehicle. It won’t set any

records nor thrill enormously

with its power, but for $30k and

low ongoing running costs, it is

value and you can guarantee that

it will do its job for decades to

come.

TOUCH CANTERBURY

Touch is once again out in force across parks, beaches

and backyards. The flexibility of this game sees it as one

of the most popular summer sports in NZ. This season

sees more than 17,000 participants actively involved in our

competitions, which span across Canterbury and the West

coast. Currently we have over 30 affiliated modules that

cover both junior and senior competitions and cater to all

ages and experience.

Touch really is a sport that caters to people of all diverse

backgrounds and provides opportunities for all. This is one of

the keys to why we are able to develop relationships with other

local sporting communities and most importantly connect and

build strong links within the community.

Whilst a large majority of participants are involved in touch

for the pure social and fitness aspect of it, we do have a

developed pathway for those that have higher aspirations to

representative honours.

Touch Canterbury has a long and proud record on the

national stage. In 2020 we will have 5 teams represent

Canterbury and travel to Auckland for the Bunnings Junior

National Touch Championships, from 14-16 February. These

teams will compete in the boys, girls and mixed divisions at

both U16 and U18 level, against the best players and teams

from all over New Zealand.

At the Bunnings National Touch Championships in Rotorua,

from 6-8 March we will have 4 Canterbury teams represent

in the Open Men/Women grades, and 6 teams representing

masters grades from Over 30 – 55 years.

Players, coaches and management across all teams have

been working extremely hard, and we look forward to seeing

all the preparation be put into action as they challenge for a

national title.

Touch Canterbury also supports the development and growth of

referees within our sport and we are very proud to once again

have one of the largest provincial contingent of referees attend

these national events.

Touch Canterbury and our representative players are

extremely grateful for the support of local

businesses and funders to aid our athletes in

recognising and achieving their goals. Touch is

a user-pay system which can add a lot of extra

pressure, and without external support many would

simply not be able to attend.

Keep up to date with all the activity and results here

Exciting challenge ahead for team at Nationals

The U18 Girls are looking forward to attending the Junior Touch

Nationals, held at Bruce Pulman Park in Auckland from the 14th –

16th February 2020. This tournament is a great opportunity for the

girls to play the best of the best from every province. It will be a great

challenge, one that the team is very excited about.

Under the guidance of coach Adrian Godinet, the team have been

working hard on policies and plays. The girls are a talented group who

work well together, have a lot of heart and show great determination,

an all-round fantastic team on and off the field. We have a lot of

experience within the team, a strong leadership group finished off being

captained by Gemma Rowe and vice-captain Courtney Godinet.

We played in the Southern IPS tournament in Christchurch in

December playing against Otago U18 Girls and some mixed teams. It

gave us a great opportunity to put plays into place and work on policies.

We would like to say a massive thanks to our families, supporters and

team sponsors for all their support this far. It has been really awesome

and very much appreciated by the team management and players.

THANK YOU!

TEAM CONFIDENT FOR NATIONAL TOURNAMENT

This year’s Canterbury U16 Boys have built a

fantastic team culture in their build-up to the 2020

Junior NZ Touch Nationals in Auckland.

In preparation for the NZ Touch Nationals, the

team has had two warm-up tournaments the 1st

being in early December 2019 in Oamaru for a quad

tournament which was the teams first formal hit out

and after a tough day, the team walked away with

the gold.

In late December the team then lined up for the

Southern IPS for their second tournament and after

a massive day 2 where the team played five games

and some awesome touch we walked away with a

Silver Medal.

weeK four: upping the pace

This week we will step it up a bit more. The beginners group will progress to the stage that most of the walking is replaced by

slow jogging and the intermediate group are starting to incorporate some efforts in zone 2. Remember that zone 1 is perceived

as an easy effort which you can maintain for very long periods of time. In zone 2 you will get slightly puffed but you can still have a

conversation. You go from jogging in zone 1 to a proper running movement in zone 2 with the main difference being that zone

1 has a slower rhythm, staying low to the ground where as zone 2 brings extra spring in your step combined with an increase in

leg turnover (stride rate). The intermediate group introduces zone 2 pace as 2 minute repetitions alternated by 2 minute easy

jogging. Zone 2 to 3 will be the recommended pace for the City to Surf event for the intermediate group while the beginners

will mainly stay in zone 1 and 2.

The difference between walking and jogging is not only decided by the rhythm of the movement but also how and where you

land your feet. When jogging most efficiently you land on your mid-foot under the centre of gravity of the body, which, in the

upright position, is located in the pelvis just behind the midline of the body. With a slight forward lean of the body you can use

gravity to pull you forward while your legs keep you upright and push you in a forward direction. Walking is done in a more

upright position and most of us land on our heel first and roll over the outside of our foot before pushing off with our forefoot. It

helps to keep your core (lower abdomen, back, pelvis and hips) well supported by pushing your pelvis slightly forward. This will

stop you from “sitting” and over striding.

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

There is no need to bring fluids with you

during the sessions as you are not exercising

long and hard enough to cause serious

dehydration. Even on warm (north-west)

days it is sufficient to have a glass of water

or juice just before you go out. You can

re-hydrate on your return home, again with

water and/or a glass of fruit juice. Taking

fluids during exercise is generally not

required until you start to exceed 90 minutes

on a normal day and 60 minutes on a hot

day (temperatures above 25 degrees).

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

• By Gordon Findlater

Mick Downer

THE CANTERBURY Rams

have pulled off a coup by

securing the services of one of

the country’s most promising

basketballers.

Last year Jack Salt became the

only Kiwi to ever win a United

States college NCAA Championship

– the biggest prize in

college basketball. The 2.08m

centre from Auckland will now

do the basketball equivalent of

a Caleb Ralph, Ron Cribb and

Jack Goodhue by moving to

Christchurch to take his game to

a new level.

“He’s a big

unit. They don’t

grow on trees,

there’s only

a handful of

big dominant

New Zealanders

floating

around, so

it’s absolutely

a coup to have Jack want to

continue his career with us,” said

Canterbury Rams coach Mick

Downer.

When the Rams begin their

NBL campaign in April it will

be the 23-year-old’s first in

more than eight months. After

captaining Virginia to their first

ever championship in April Salt

went onto play two games for

the Phoenix Suns in the NBA

Summer League in July. He was

then due to play professionally

for Polish club Trefl Sopot. However,

Salt was unable to take the

court after coming down with

glandular fever.

Salt returned to Auckland and

has been under doctor’s orders

to eat healthy, drink water and

sleep. He’s followed the guidelines

for the past five months

and for the past five weeks has

been back to feeling normal.

“For me it wasn’t really the

energy, it was the dizziness. I

was sleepy for about two weeks,

but then I got over that. It was

just a constant feeling of being

BIG MAN: Jack Salt will look to ignite his career with the

Canterbury Rams after a college career which saw him win

the NCAA Championship with Virginia. ​

dizzy. It was hard to work out

because I literally felt like I was

drunk when I was working out,”

said Salt.

“I’ve been working out for

over a month now and had no

setbacks, so I’m feeling good.”

‘It was hard to work out

because I literally felt like

I was drunk when I was

working out’

– Jack Salt

Salt won’t be the first Virginia

product to play for the Rams.

Last year one of the franchise’s

import spots was filled by Isaiah

Wilkins – Salt’s former roommate.

Without knowing it at

the time Salt helped the Rams

recruit Wilkins by telling him

he had visited Christchurch and

liked the city. This time it was a

role reversal which has helped

Salt make the decision to move

south.

“Isaiah is one of my best

friends. It helped having him

tell me what Mick was like as a

coach in terms of player development.

He said the workouts he

did were really good and I know

Isaiah really well, I worked out

with him for four years and if

he’s saying it’s good I trust his

judgement a lot,” said Salt.

“I haven’t been able to compete

for eight months and I’m a competitor,

so to be able to come into

a team with a good coach and a

good culture is exciting.”

As proven last year that competitive

instinct creates a hunger

for titles, something he’s looking

to continue with the Rams.

“My goal is to win a championship

for the Rams. I’m coming

to better myself for sure, but I

want to win.

Salt will travel to the United

States this month to ramp up

his training, before arriving in

Christchurch on March 19. The

Rams start their season against

Taranaki at Cowles Stadium on

April 11.

Talma, Jonathan Janssen,

Hay cancellation

the last straw

FORGET THE current Black

Caps and Gary Stead saga, the

team in absolute disarray at the

moment are the All Whites.

On Monday evening, current

All Whites coach and former

player Danny Hay was due to

speak to football

supporters at English

Park.

However, the event

was cancelled due a

lack of interest. To

make matters more

embarrassing, the

event was free.

It’s not like people

don’t know where

English Park is.

Over the summer

hundreds have regularly

gathered there

to match the Canterbury

United Dragons.

The Dragons might

have just two wins

from 12 matches and

occupy last position

in the national league,

but it appears enough

to warrant more interest than an

evening with the national team

coach.

Football is the globe’s biggest

game and it’s not like it’s

irrelevant in New Zealand. It’s

still the fourth most participated

sport at secondary school behind

netball, basketball and rugby.

Most young people in New

Zealand interested in football

UNREAL: Danny

Hay can’t fill a

room at English

Park which is

about the right

size for a 21st.

would easily real off the names of

the biggest Premier League club’s

managers, but would they know

who Danny Hay is?

Last year I wrote about the

All Whites having not played a

match in more than 12 months

and how the effects

of not regularly being

able to watch our

national side are leading

to a disconnect

between the team and

supporters. It appears

Monday’s cancellation

due to a lack of interest

is a prime example

of people not feeling a

connection to the All

Whites.

The All Whites

broke their more

than 12-month spell

without playing in

November when they

lost away to the Republic

of Ireland and

Lithuania. They play

another two games

in the Middle East

next month against Oman and

Bahrain.

However, fans still haven’t had

a chance to watch the All Whites

on home soil since the first leg of

their World Cup qualifier against

Peru in November 2017.

Gary Stead might not be seen

in the greatest light by much of

the public at the moment, but at

least he’d fill a room.

A PROMISING Canterbury

opening batsman is leading New

Zealand’s charge into tonight’s

semi-final at the under-19

Cricket World Cup in South

Africa.

Rhys Mariu, 18, is New Zealand’s

leading run scorer at the

World Cup. He has amassed

205 runs in four matches at an

average of 51.25 and strike rate

of 87.60.

The former St Andrew’s College

player will now look to

continue his run of form when

New Zealand play Bangladesh in

the tournament semi-final this

evening.

“It’s always nice to contribute

to a winning team and then

obviously to get this far. We’re

extremely happy with making

the top four, but we think we can

further and I think that belief

will help us win games going

forward,” said Mariu.

“We’ve had must-win games

so far, so we’ll just try to treat it

like that and not think too much

about it being a semi-final.”

One of those must-win games

came against Sri Lanka in pool

play. Chasing 243 for victory

Mariu got New Zealand off to a

perfect start with a knock of 86

from 106 deliveries.

“I wouldn’t want to bat

anywhere else but opening. I

wouldn’t want to walk out after

waiting for someone to get out. I

prefer to start out there and have

the onus to score the runs rather

than waiting for someone else to

do it,” he said.

Mariu – who plays club

cricket for Oxford-Rangiora –

has had no shortage of success

Keas look to ‘brotherhood’ to start new era

• By Jacob Page

IUMA MULITALO knows

he and fellow Linwood Keas

premier co-coach Agaese Fiso’s

biggest challenge will be to

maintain the standards they had

on the field.

It seems fitting that two men

will be needed to replace fourtime

winning Canterbury coach

Andrew Auimatagi, who stepped

away from the role after the 2019

final.

Auimatagi was in charge for

eight years but chose to continue

his Canterbury Bulls commitments

while freeing up time to

try to land more national coaching

appointments.

Mulitalo said as far as he knew

with such a daunting legacy to

continue, he and Fiso were the

only two who applied for the

role.

“We’ve obviously been very

successful for a long time now,”

Mulitalo said.

“This club is a family and we

know those standards must be

leading into the World Cup. In

December he was named joint

tournament MVP while captaining

St Andrew’s College to their

first ever Gillette Cup national

secondary school title.

New Zealand’s journey to

the semi-final saw them finish

second in their pool after a

rained-off match with Japan,

three-wicket win over Sri Lanka

and 44-run loss to India. They

then booked their spot in the

semi-finals with a quarter-final

maintained.”

Both co-coaches were part of

four Keas premier title teams

as players in 2008 and 2016,

2017 and 2018 before coaching

the Linwood Reserve team to a

championship in their first attempt

last season.

Mulitalo played more than 150

premier games at prop while Fiso

is a former captain and backrower

who played for more than

a decade.

“It’s up to us to maintain the

culture,” Mulitalo said.

“It’s a brotherhood – we were

all on one side of it (as players)

and now we are on the other side

trying to continue the great work

Andrew has done.”

Mulitalo said watching from

the sideline initially did come

easily after years of playing.

“I definitely struggled not being

out there every week.

“We know our players pretty

well, we’ve played with many

of them so we just want to keep

things going.

“You have to put your coaches

win over the West Indies last

week.

The team are more than familiar

with tonight’s opponents

– Bangladesh. The two sides split

results during a five-match series

at Lincoln University in October.

The last time the two met was

during a World Cup warm-up

in South Africa last month

which New Zealand won by four

wickets.

“We’ve played them six times

already so we know what to

hat on, we can’t be mates (with

players).

“We put our hands up for the

role because we want to continue

on the legacy.

Mulitalo said it would be a

very settled squad this year based

on preseason training.

“Most of the guys have returned

and there is plenty of fire

in the belly for them to continue

to achieve big things this year.

They won’t be the only coaching

changes this year, with Jason

Martin taking over the top job at

the Halswell Hornets from Rob

Faalio.

The Northern Bulldogs will

also have a new coach with

Brent Ringdahl taking the helm,

replacing Sam Brown.

Ex Papanui Tigers player John

Tafua will take over the club’s

premier team and will be assisted

by Poasa Alaifea.

The Celebration Lions will

have a new coach after Steve

Fenika resigned but who that

will be remains a mystery.

expect,” said Mariu.

Their batsmen are quite

handy. We’ve seen what they can

do to our bowlers, but if we can

combat that then we should be in

with a chance.”

If New Zealand are to advance

to the final one of the biggest

challenges won’t just be their

opposition. Players have battled

with the heat in South Africa

throughout the tournament,

with temperatures soaring in

excess of 30 deg C most days.

The forecast high today in

Potchefstroom – where New

Zealand will play Bangladesh –

is 31 deg C.

The heat got the better of

Mariu in his high-scoring knock

against Sri Lanka. Late in his

37-over stay at the crease Mariu

had to be treated for cramp.

The souring temperatures at the

tournament have seen a number

of players suffer the same fate.

The most notable case came

in New Zealand’s thrilling twowicket

quarter-final win over

the West Indies which saw two

New Zealand players carry West

Indian batsman Kirk McKenzie

after being dismissed for 99

while suffering severe cramp.

If New Zealand win tonight

they will meet India in the

World Cup final on Sunday.

New Zealand’s best finish

at an Under-19 Cricket World

Cup was runner-up in 1998

when the tournament was last

held in South Africa. The New

Zealand team containing Marshall

twins Hamish and James,

Lou Vincent, James Franklin

and Kyle Mills lost to England in

the final.

Licensed Agent REAA 2008

CHECKLIST FOR

SELLING YOUR HOME

MAKE SMALL FIXES

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes, and correct

the flaws that are most egregious (if affordable) or can

be relatively easily fixed—from repairing cracks in the

walkways to repainting dingy walls or oiling creaky

hinges.

SET A PRICE

A real estate agent will give you a market analysis free

of charge or commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the market, then

ask to see listings for properties similar to yours that

have sold in the past six months.

Check out comparable listings yourself in the real

estate section of your newspaper or on websites.

Then decide whether you want a quick, easy sale or

the highest possible price.

CLEAN & DECLUTTER

Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks, and “stuff”—

toss it, donate it, give it away, sell it at a yard sale,

or put it into storage—so the house seems more

spacious and buyers can imagine themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start showing your house, keep

the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens weeded,

rooms spotless and clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR OPEN DAYS

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh flowers or

bowls of fruit, bake a batch of cookies for the homey

smell, open the drapes, keep pets out of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO YOUR OWN BUILDING

INSPECTION

It may save you time, especially with older homes,

to identify—and potentially solve—problems your

buyer’s inspection will discover later.

Getting what you paid

for on settlement day

In the movies, the day someone gets the keys

to their newly bought home is portrayed as

a golden, stress-free time. The reality can be

rather different, especially if you find your

dream home has turned into something

akin to Nightmare On Elm Street since you

agreed to buy it.

The trick to a stress-free settlement is to

do as much as you can in advance, starting

with when you’re signing the sale and

purchase agreement,” advises Kevin Lampen-

Smith, chief executive of the Real Estate

Agents Authority (REAA).

The sale and purchase agreement is the

legally-binding contract agreed between you

and the seller that details the property, the

conditions of sale and the price. Make sure

that there is an agreed list of chattels, with

notes as to their condition, in this agreement.

If the property is full of rubbish, and you

want it gone before you take possession,

make that a condition of the sale. If there are

holes in the fence that the seller has promised

to fix, get that in writing on the agreement:

don’t rely on verbal assurances that

something will be done prior to settlement.

It’s far better to get all these niggly details

sorted out before you sign the agreement

than face protracted battles down the track.”

As a buyer, you are generally entitled to

one opportunity to inspect the property

before settlement day. If the property has

sitting tenants, ask your lawyer to ensure

there is a ‘final inspection’ clause inserted in

the sale and purchase agreement before you

sign it. This inspection is to make sure that

it is in the same or better order it was when

you viewed it and agreed to the sale. It is not

designed to give you the chance to uncover

new defects, or to give a rental agent the

chance to appraise the place’s value.

“A seller does not have to accommodate

any extra requests to visit the property prior

to settlement,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Remember that the seller may have a lot

on their plate; making the property available

so your interior decorator can measure up

for new curtains is unlikely to be a high

priority.”

Your real estate agent will usually

arrange the inspection with the seller, and

accompany you to the property. Most experts

recommend that this inspection takes place

around 24 hours before settlement day so

there are no hold-ups to the transfer of funds

and ownership.

NEW LISTINGS

When you come to inspect the property,

everything should be as it was when you

decided to purchase it (as reflected by the

sale and purchase agreement). Lampen-

Smith says you can expect chattels to be in

a reasonable working order unless it has

been agreed and documented otherwise.

You cannot complain to the seller that the

oven isn’t clean enough, but you can raise a

complaint if it is missing, or it is a different

model to the one cited in the agreement.

Don’t forget to check that garage door

openers and pool covers are in situ, or that

locks work properly.

If there is a problem, the REAA says you

should speak to the real estate agent and

your lawyer in the first instance. They can

help you negotiate with the seller to remedy

any issues, such as a newly broken window

or missing keys. Your lawyer should work

with the seller’s lawyer to reach a satisfactory

solution, such as getting the seller to make

any necessary repairs, or to deduct any costs

from the eventual settlement.

Making the final inspection 24 hours

before settlement is due gives you and the

seller time to reach an agreement over

anything outstanding. This is important,

because if you do not complete settlement on

the due date and the seller can demonstrate

that they were able and willing to complete

their side of the settlement, then you will

be liable for interest on any portion of the

purchase price that is unpaid. The seller does

not need to give you access to the property

while any amount remains outstanding.

“Like any property transaction, success

often depends on doing things right at the

start,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Get the details right at the beginning

and you’ve got a greater chance of a happy

ending.”
