Quake study looks

at long-term effects

the 6.3 quake struck in 2011.

• By Sophie Cornish

PEOPLE WHO lived through the

devastating 2010 and 2011 earthquakes

are part of a new study to determine

if they could end up having long-term

psychological effects.

The brains of 60 people, who experienced

significant personal loss during

the earthquakes, but don’t have post

traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or

other psychiatric disorders, are being

examined.

Their experiences include physical

injury or illness, seeing buildings fall,

witnessing death or loss of income or

property.

The aim is to show that psychologically

healthy people may still be vulnerable to

other implications at a later date.

A similar study was carried out in the

United States on people who experienced

the September 11 terror attacks.

New Zealand Brain Institute’s Nadia

Borlase said: “There has been quite a lot

of research on people who do have psychological

trauma and the brain changes

associated with that, but our study is

different because these people don’t have

any psychological trauma.

“We actually already had an existing

participant group, which has been followed

for the last eight years. What we

have done this year is starting to look at

their brains.”

Saturday will mark the ninth

anniversary of the February 22, 2011, 6.3

magnitude earthquake, which claimed

the lives of 185 people.

THE CITY’S biggest Holden

dealer is bracing itself for life

without the brand after General

Motors announced it will no

longer be making vehicles

suitable for New Zealand roads.

Last week the United Statesbased

manufacturer said it would

stop producing right-hand drive

vehicles at the end of the year.

Blackwells chief executive Steve

by the announcement. Blackwells

has been operating since 1923.

hitting the market brings a

different meaning to the word

‘bargain’: Hail-damaged cars.

An estimated 10,000 vehicles

were damaged when golf ballsized

hailstones pelted Timaru

in November and now they’re

slowly making their way into the

Christchurch market.

A specialised Queenslandbased

company – Hail Response

10 weeks.

“Servicing and parts for

Holdens will continue for the

next 10 years or so. Really the

the rest of the car is crushed. The

engines and transmissions are

then sold overseas, to the Middle

East,” he said.

“It’s a terrible waste of these

cars, especially with the little

cosmetic damage they have.

This way we get to sell them a lot

cheaper and sell them to someone

who perhaps couldn’t afford

the same thing otherwise.”

Mr Grenfell said the brand

would be sorely missed by his

been tough for the company.

After only a few days, the

dealership has sold about seven

hail-damaged cars.

ban to

A CITY council hearings panel

will consider submissions today

over a proposal to impose a

permanent alcohol ban on rugby

league fields.

Last year, the city council

imposed a temporary ban on

rugby league fields for the entire

season.

This led to public consultation

on a permanent ban after

Canterbury Rugby League reported

the temporary ban had

contributed to “a remarkable

and positive change of attitude

towards drinking alcohol during

games.”

Twenty-five submissions were

received. Nineteen supported

a permanent alcohol ban, one

“had concerns” over the proposal

and five opposed it. Three

of the submitters will speak to

the hearings panel, which will

then make a recommendation to

full council.

One of the organisations

Parents

warned of

offender

• By Sophie Cornish

PARENTS OF school students

in the eastern suburbs have been

warned of a child sex offender

who is moving into their area.

Parents of students at Linwood

College, Linwood Avenue,

Christchurch East and Whitau

schools have been informed of

the situation by the Department

of Corrections and Ministry of

Education.

Corrections and the ministry

have met with the schools’ principals.

The unnamed offender has been

living on a community-based

sentence for some time.

Parents have been told the offender’s

accommodation will be a

safe distance from any school or

childcare facility.

Corrections Southern operations

director Chris O’Brien

Smith said: “We carry out an

extensive and robust process to

assess the suitability of every address

proposed to accommodate a

person with convictions for child

sex offences. A range of factors are

considered.”

Mayoral candidate Park sends

complaints about Dalziel to police

• By Louis Day

MAYOR Lianne Dalziel’s biggest

rival in last year’s local body

elections has handed complaints

they made about her campaign

last year to police.

Darryll Park said the

complaints he previously sent to

electoral officer Jo Daly during

the campaign have now been

handed to the police.

Mr Park said he did this to

assist in the ongoing police investigation

into Ms Dalziel’s failure

to correctly declare her election

campaign donations.

Ms Dalziel originally did

not identify the major donors

behind her successful re-election

campaign. However, she released

them after coming under fire

from another mayoral rival John

Minto.

The Local Electoral Act

requires candidates to disclose

the identities of donors who

contribute more than $1500.

Six of Ms Dalziel’s donors made

contributions above $1500, with

one as much as $17,850.

Ms Dalziel wouldn’t comment

on Mr Park’s complaint or any

other matters relating to the

police investigation.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Darryll Park

One of Mr Park’s complaints

relates to city council controlled

Facebook page “Lianne Dalziel

Christchurch Mayor” having a

link to Ms Dalziel’s campaign

website. The link was removed

after his complaint.

Mr Park instructed law firm

Cavell Leitch to express his concerns

in a letter to Ms Daly: “The

inclusion of campaign material

on a Christchurch City Council

social media account may give

the impression that the council is

promoting Ms Dalziel ahead of

all other mayoral candidates.”

Mr Park also took issue with

Lianne Dalziel

sections of Ms Dalziel’s campaign

website having advertisements

without promoter statements.

Candidates are required to

have promoter statements on

all election advertising, which

includes the name and address of

the candidate. Failure to do so is

an offence and can result in a fine

of up to $40,000.

Mr Park also accused the city

council of being in breach of its

own guidelines by following Ms

Dalziel on Twitter. He also was

concerned Ms Dalziel was potentially

using city council images in

campaign advertising which was

seen as an “inappropriate use of

public resource for campaigning

purposes.”

At the time, Ms Daly said

in a letter of response to the

complaints that the existence of

the link on the city council controlled

Facebook page to Ms Dalziel’s

campaign website had gone

unnoticed by the city council and

had since been removed.

She also agreed the links from

the city council-run Facebook

page to Ms Dalziel’s campaign

website could be seen as inconsistent

with the protocol that

refrains city council social media

accounts from promoting candidates.

However, Ms Daly saw no issues

with Ms Dalziel’s campaign

website and display of promoter

statements.

“I consider that individual

posts or advertisements

within a website including the

authorisation statement are

compliant with the Act,” she said.

She also said the city council’s

link to Dalziel’s Twitter account

had been removed and the images

used in her campaign were

not council property.

No further action was taken by

the city council.

PEOPLE COULD see a small

drop in their power bills in time

for winter.

Electricity lines company

Orion will be reducing its prices

by an average of six per cent

from April 1.

The Christchurch city and

Selwyn district council-owned

company distributes power to

204,000 homes and businesses in

Canterbury.

But whether the reduction

in Orion’s prices is reflected in

people’s power bills will be up to

individual electricity companies.

The reduction in Orion’s prices

reflects a decrease of 7.4 per

cent in its cost of distribution,

partially off-set by a 1.4 per cent

increase in transmission costs

from the national grid operator,

Transpower.

Orion’s charges for distribution

and transmission costs

combined represent 36 per cent

of the average household power

bill.

Consumer NZ head of research

Jessica Wilson said the

changes would shave an average

Coriander’s

in liquidation

• By Sophie Cornish

A POPULAR restaurant owner

facing worker exploitation charges

has had four of his businesses put

into liquidation.

Last month it was revealed

Coriander’s Ethnic Indian Restaurants

owner Amar Deep Singh

is facing charges of exploiting

his workers, whom the Labour

Inspectorate concluded were

systematically underpaid and

abused.

On Monday, four businesses

under Singh’s name were put into

liquidation by Inland Revenue.

These are Coriander’s Ltd, Jeet

Holdings Ltd, Jeet Holdings No 2

Ltd and Jeet Holdings No 8 Ltd.

The application is due to be

heard in the High Court at

Christchurch on March 5. Coriander’s

restaurants have operated

in the wider Christchurch area for

the past 12 years, with three restaurants

currently operating – one

in the central city, one in Upper

Riccarton and one in Rolleston.

In relation to the worker exploitation

charges, the Inspectorate is

seeking recovery of pay, a declaration

of breach, penalties and a

banning order.

The charges against Singh

are scheduled to be heard in

the Employment Court in

Christchurch on May 19 and 20.

The restaurants are still open.

The horse trainer, the businessman,

• By Louis Day

DETAILS HAVE emerged for

the first time of bugged phone

conversations involving a big

betting businessman and harness

racing driver and trainer who

was arrested for race fixing.

The conversations are part

of the ongoing major police

investigation into the harness

racing industry in Canterbury,

codenamed

Operation

Inca, which involved

undercover

officers

and electronic

surveillance.

Prominent

Nigel

McGrath

trainer and

driver Nigel

McGrath initially

faced a race-fixing charge

in the district court relating to

a race at Addington Raceway in

March, 2018, leading up to the

prestigious New Zealand Derby.

Raceway stipendiary stewards

launched an inquiry after the

race, concerned by the manner

McGrath had driven one of the

two horses he trained in the race

Star Commander. His other

horse, Sheriff won.

At the time, police were covertly

running Operation Inca,

gathering information and evidence

on drug-taking by people

in the industry and potential

race-fixing in order to land bets.

Two phone calls were intercepted,

one between the

businessman and McGrath and a

second between the businessman

and an associate in relation to

the Star Commander race.

The identity of the businessman,

who is associated with the

McGrath stable, remains secret.

He is facing criminal charges in

the district court next month as

a result of Operation Inca and

has interim name suppression.

Police charged McGrath with

race fixing, which was later dismissed

in the district court.

The racing industry’s investigative

body, Racing Integrity

Unit, then charged McGrath

with racing offences which were

heard by the Judicial Control

Authority.

At the hearing, details of the

bugged phone calls emerged.

Former High Court judge

Warwick Gendall, who chaired

the two day JCA hearing did not

suppress the recordings.

The first phone call hears

McGrath tell the businessman:

“Don’t worry about Star Commander”

and then he adds “Star

Commander won’t get in Sheriff’s

way”.

In his written decision released

last week, Justice Gendall says

it was “abundantly clear” the

businessman believed Star Commander

was unlikely to finish in

a place.

Betting records showed the

businessman bet $27,252 on

19 bets involving wins, multis,

quaddies, trebles and a double on

Sheriff to win $37,057.

McGrath is asked by the

businessman if Star Commander

would beat Sheriff.

“Nah. Oh if it does it won’t.

If-if it ah. Nah don’t worry, don’t

worry about Star Commander.

Star Commander won’t get in

Sheriff’s way. You don’t want

that.”

the phone calls and the big bets

The businessman called

McGrath after the race saying

a betting associate had said the

impressive thing was “Nigel

burning other horse.”

McGrath had sat outside the

horse leading the race, which

wilted under pressure, and Sheriff

was able to come through and win.

McGrath faced two charges at

the JCA hearing.

The first was a serious racing

offence which accused McGrath

of driving in a manner detrimental

to the interests of harness

racing in that he planned and

deliberately drove his horse in a

manner to assist Sheriff.

The second lesser charge of improper

driving, alleged he drove

Star Commander improperly, as

well as planned and deliberately

assisted Sheriff.

He originally pleaded not

guilty to both charges.

However, on the second day

of the hearing he pleaded guilty

to the lesser improper driving

charge, and the Racing Integrity

Unit dropped the more serious

charge.

Justice Gendall suspended

him from driving racing for six

months and ordered him to pay

costs of $11,500.

In a letter obtained by The Star

BIG BETS: A businessman wagered $27,252 on a horse

after a phone call with trainer Nigel McGrath which was

bugged by police.

PHOTO: GETTY IMAGES

to his horse owners after the decision,

McGrath said: “As you’ll

be well aware, I haven’t driven at

the races for over a year so this is

a no penalty for me.”

McGrath’s defence counsel

Pip Hall QC fought for the transcripts

of the conversation with

the businessman to not be heard

at the JCA hearing.

He argued the agreement of the

material being given to the Racing

Integrity Unit was an “unlawful

bargain to stifle prosecution.”

Justice Gendall criticised Mr

Hall saying it was “disingenuous

and opportunistic” considering

the defence had agreed to the

transcripts being handed to the

prosecution under the agreement

the criminal proceedings would

be brought to an end.

Mr Hall argued the transcripts

did not demonstrate a deliberate

plan to assist and favour Sheriff,

who he said was a horse a class

above any other in the field

which was reflected in the TAB

odds for the race.

Said Mr

Hall: “The two

talked about

scenarios as to

how the race

might unfold.

But the race

never unfolded

in the way Pip Hall QC

discussed.

At no stage was the possibility

discussed that Star Commander

would attempt to obtain the

parked position outside the leading

horse and that Sheriff would

gain the one/one position, which

demonstrates there was no predetermined

plan.

“Mr McGrath described the

difference in the ability of Star

Commander and Sheriff as ‘night

and day’ and he was in the in

the best position to know as the

trainer of both.”

Justice Gendall said: “Of course

as is common practice, it is very

usual for a trainer to discuss with

an owner how his horse may

be driven and race tactics and

chances before a race. But this

does not permit a driver trainer

to advise or discuss how his

other horse in the race, which he

will be driving, will likely to be

driven or its tactics.

“That is especially where the

(businessman) is told, as here

‘don’t worry about Star Commander’

and then ‘Star Commander

won’t get in Sheriff’s

way.’

“His actions provided significant

benefits to Sheriff and that it

may not have mattered as it was

the very hot favourite and superior

horse in the race, it does not

lessen the offence of Mr McGrath

of improper driving. Those punters

who may have wagered on

Star Commander for a place or

in an exotic bet such as place six

were entitled to see it properly

driven.”

During the hearing, RIU

counsel Brian Dickey said:

“Racing around the first bend

Mr McGrath looks behind him

and to his inside towards Sheriff

on two clear occasions. With

400m of the race remaining

Mr McGrath looks once to his

outside and then three times

to his inside, again all in the

direction of Sheriff.

Star Commander then moves

outwards on the final stages of

the final bend which creates

a vacant gap ahead of Sheriff.

Sheriff, who was trailing Star

Commander did not need to

make use of that run which was

presented, instead switching to a

run on the inside and going on to

win the race.”

Justice Gendall did not accept

the suggestion made by Mr Hall

that it was permissible to look

behind for safety reasons before

crossing another horse.

The total number of times he

looked behind was 11 times and

the compelling inference we draw

that this was to see Sheriff.

“His action provided significant

benefits to Sheriff, and that

it may not have mattered as it was

the very hot favourite and superior

horse in the race, it does not

lessen the offence of Mr McGrath

of improper driving.”

He said McGrath’s actions were

“complete stupidity.”

Justice Gendall issued a warning

to other harness racing

drivers.

“In this industry, participants

that respect the integrity of harness

racing are to be reminded

that stipendary of the RIU have

evidence of improper driving

should bring charges,” he said.

Several senior harness racing

drivers gave written evidence

for McGrath (before he changed

his plea to guilty) saying they

saw nothing wrong with how he

drove Star Commander.

Mr McGrath also had support

from one of the industry’s top

administrators, Harness Racing

New Zealand chairman Ken

Spicer.

Mr Spicer sat with McGrath

during the first day of the

hearing, and even approached

The Star, saying: “When’s your

bloody newspaper going to write

something positive about harness

racing.”

Mr Spicer later told The Star

he had no conflict of interest in

terms of supporting McGrath

and carrying out his role as

HRNZ chairman.

“I supported the man as a

friend but not in my official capacity.

I put my friendship above

the role, I’m not going to turn

Mr Spicer manages a syndicate

of owners for a horse in

McGrath’s stable. He also bred

still owns the broodmare.

Said Mr Spicer: “I just think

run their course. If anyone has

Mr Hall also has racing

Orion New Zealand Limited owns and operates the electricity

Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers, and from the Canterbury coast to Arthur’s Pass.

We receive electricity from Transpower’s national grid at seven different locations

and we distribute this electricity to more than 204,000 homes and businesses.

Our service is delivery only. We don’t buy and sell the electricity, we just deliver it

Retailers, in turn, include this cost in their retail electricity prices. Orion’s distribution

Mr Mora said city council

City councillor Anne Galloway

Her idea was supported

races against her parents around the house,

complete with “riddy, stiddy, doh”. The last

part is usually yelled back at us when she’s

halfway to the finish line.

I mention this as she used her surprising

turn of speed to – literally – keep me on

my toes when we took her to Sparks later

Saturday night.

Mere minutes after setting up our picnic

blanket, young road runner set off in the

direction of the stage. I managed to keep

close behind and she was quickly thwarted

by a busy thoroughfare of people a few

metres from our camp.

The sun was starting to set in earnest and

she let us get some warm clothes on her.

Using playing with her beanie as a distraction,

she made her way to the edge of our

little camp. As soon as she saw the coast

was clear she took off, away from the stage

this time.

I managed to catch up to her at a mob

of what seemed like 14 to 16-year-olds she

seemed keen to be part of. Fortunately we

both stuck out like sore thumbs in that

group, so it was reasonably easy to repatriate

her back to camp.

Soon after returning she made another

try for the stage again, but ended up tripping

over some guy’s leg. Thank you lying

down man, you were my only hope.

Clearly, another distraction was required

before her next venture and one quickly appeared

in the form of a handful of St John

stickers. After 15 minutes of sticking and

unsticking them, she had me convinced

she wouldn’t be taking off again.

But, just as the nostalgia masterpiece that

is the theme tune to Jurrasic Park started

up, she made her final bid for freedom.

Heading away from the stage again, she

took off at top speed, luckily it was near

9pm and Vittoria’s vim finally reached its

limit. She barely fought it when I finally

caught up to her and was soon snuggled up

in my arms as the fireworks began.

Bugged phone calls and

big horse racing bets

ANOTHER STEP in the

long running saga of a police

undercover operation which

led to an investigation into the

harness racing industry has come

and gone.

As we reveal in The Star today,

phone conversations between

one of Canterbury’s leading

harness trainers Nigel McGrath

and a high profile Canterbury

businessman are now public.

The businessman is associated

with McGrath’s stable and the

conversations bugged by police

effectively revolve around two

horses trained by McGrath in a

race at Addington Raceway in

March, 2018.

One of the horses, Star Commander,

was driven by McGrath.

The allegation was McGrath

did not give Star Commander

every chance to win the race,

driving in a manner which

would benefit his other horse

Sheriff.

From the

editor’s desk

Barry Clarke

In the phone conversations, the

businessman, a big punter, is told

he doesn’t have to worry about

Star Commander. That was taken

as a clear steer by the police and

the Racing Integrity Unit – the

racing industry’s investigative

body – which horse the businessman

should bet on.

And that is not allowed.

Betting records showed the

businessman wagered $27,000 on

Sheriff, which won, for a return

of $37,000.

The businessman, who appears

in the district court next month

on criminal charges relating

to the police investigation, has

interim name suppression.

A criminal charge against

McGrath of race fixing relating

to the race was dropped. During

behind-the-scenes discussions

with the prosecution and

McGrath’s lawyer, it was agreed

the recordings could be used

in evidence in the subsequent

prosecution by the RIU in a

racing industry Judicial Control

Authority hearing.

That became a grey area later

when McGrath’s lawyer tried

unsuccessfully to bury the recordings

at the hearing.

McGrath pleaded guilty on the

second day of the JCA hearing

to one of two charges preferred

against him. The more serious

charge was then dropped by the

RIU and McGrath was banned

from driving for six months.

McGrath would later tell his

owners in a letter the ban was

of no consequence because he

hadn’t driven for nearly a year.

Former High Court judge

Warwick Gendall who chaired

the hearing was highly critical of

McGrath.

In his summing up he said the

industry was being put on notice

that it needed to clean its act up.

But think about this: A number

of well known drivers gave

written evidence for McGrath

saying in their expert opinions,

they could see nothing wrong

with McGrath’s drive on Star

Commander, the charge he

would later plead guilty to.

So will Gendall’s comments

have any impact at all?

Performer’s dream role in dark play

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

THE OPPORTUNITY to

perform in arguably one of the

most critically successful plays

of the 20th-century isn’t one that

comes along often.

That is why Amy Straker

jumped at the chance to play the

complex character of Stella Kowalski

in American playwright

Tennessee Williams’ moving

masterpiece A Streetcar Named

Desire.

The play will

open at The

Court Theatre

on Saturday. It

is famous for

its exploration

Amy Straker

of the struggle

women faced

in the 1940s to

control their future – along with

domestic brutality.

From the moment Straker saw

a low budget version of the show

nearly 17 years ago in the city, she

was drawn to the role of Stella.

But it was when she saw her

favourite actress Morgana

O’Reilly play Stella in the Silo

Theatre season of the production

in Auckland in 2017, she was

inspired to play the role.

The stuff I am really drawn to

about her is her amazing ability

to see the good in people and to

find the light in life, I think she

is an essential part of the show,”

she said.

But Straker said Stella is also a

product of her own environment

•To book tickets to see A

Streetcar Named Desire

go to https://courttheatre.

org.nz

and is trapped in many ways

in how she is dependent on her

husband Stanley.

The story centres around

Blanche DuBois, played by

Claire Dougan, who arrives in

New Orleans after the fall of her

family home, desperate for a

place to stay.

Her sister Stella takes her in

but tensions flare as Stella’s husband

keeps a brooding eye on

his new sister-in-law.

Straker said it was also the

sisterly connection between

Blanche and Stella that drew her

in more than anything and Dougan

is like a big sister to her.

For a long time, Straker has

been a favourite for major productions

in the city.

Her talent has seen her perform

in numerous productions

in New Zealand, Australia and

London over the last 13 years

and is the co-creator of Cubbin

Theatre Company.

But she described taking part

in That Bloody Woman, which

debuted at the Christchurch

Arts Festival in 2015, as a “gamechanger”

in her career.

She said the show changed the

way she worked as a performer,

and afterwards she and her

partner Cameron had a baby.

“It literally changed my life,”

Straker said.

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question

came from Tracey Sheehan.

Congratulations!

Last year I planted red Gladiolus

Q bulbs which fl owered beautifully

and I left them in the ground

over winter. This year

one of the fl owers was pure white!

It seems over the dormant winter

one bulb has changed from red to

white. The others fl owered red. Has

the original hybrid converted back?

Or was it the soil? It’s very

sandy so I added a lot of

compost and conditioner over

winter.

A

The appearance of a pure white fl ower

is rather a mystery! It sounds like

you have done everything right,

especially when caring for your

soil, so that is not the issue.

We can only assume that amongst the

red fl owering bulbs purchased, there

was a white one that did not fl ower in

the fi rst season, and then commenced

blooming this year. We have not heard

of a red gladiolus bulb reverting from red

to white.

Make sure you have marked where the white

one fl owered so you can remove and discard it

or plant it in another place in the garden.

Products to try are: Daltons Premium Bulb

Fertiliser and Daltons Premium Bulb Mix.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Cleansed

and cured?

Many common health problems can all be easily

solved with one simple approach according to a

leading NZ Medical Herbalist, Brett Elliott.

Brett found in his clinical practice that

most of his clients have similar common

health complaints and that it all could be

traced back to digestive disorders. Did

you know up to 50% of the population

suffer from common health conditions

like; chronic constipation, acid reflux,

bloating, gas, ulcers, irritable bowel

syndrome, crohn’s disease, coeliac disease,

haemorrhoids, gallstones, cancer, diabetes,

high blood pressure, abdominal weight

gain, skin complaints and many more

and can all come back to a poor digestive

system.

Brett wanted to find a simple solution

everyone could use to support their

bodies natural healing without the side

effects of pharmaceutical medications that

often only ease or cover the symptoms

without healing as well as often having

many side effects. Brett knew everything

in the body depends on the digestive

system working properly and so went

about developing “The Ultimate

Herbal Detox Body Cleanse

Program” a simple to use two week

program. It not only supports

the whole digestive system but

also helps cleanse the entire

body of toxins and parasites.

The program contains four

different all herb formulas all

in capsule form that need to be

taken twice daily. These capsules

can be blended into a smoothie if you

prefer. Colon-aid is designed to support

a healthy bowel movement, increases the

secretion of gastric juices and bile and

promote appetite and digestion. Digez-aid

soothes and stimulates healthy digestion

and absorption of vital nutrients. Symlax

is a bulking fibre to cleanse and heal

the intestines and bowels. It also makes

you feel less hungry. Liva-food is the

final nutrient rich formula to support

a healthy liver function. It supports

detoxing the body of toxins and heavy

metals.

The program supports the bodies’

organs to do their job. The formulas are

Tinnitus

Do you experience unexplained sounds such

as ringing, whooshing, humming or buzzing?

You may be experiencing Tinnitus,

which is the term for the sensation of

hearing a sound in the absence of any

external sound. This extraneous sound

can be continuous or can come and go; or

it might appear to be in one ear or both,

in the middle of the head or be difficult to

pinpoint.

Tinnitus is very common and is

reported across all age groups. About 30%

of us will experience tinnitus at some

point and around 13% live with persistent

tinnitus. Tinnitus is more common in

people who have hearing loss or other

ear problems, but it can also be found in

people with normal hearing.

People experience tinnitus in different

ways. Most people find that they are

able to continue their normal day-to-day

activities. However, a small percentage of

people with tinnitus report it as severely

affecting their lives.

If you struggle with your tinnitus, come

along to our workshop to learn more and

to understand how to best live with it.

Huge power from Lexus hybrid SUV

THE HYBRID technology that

has been so successful for Lexus,

and Toyota, has largely been

based around the four-cylinder

powertrain that first arrived in

Prius 23 years ago.

Of course, the system has been

fundamentally improved and

refined over the years but the fact

remains most manufacturers still

use four pots in the petrol part of

the equation.

One of the exceptions is Lexus

and its V6 petrol-powered RX

series hybrid. Well actually, all

of the Lexus RX range has a V6

engine but the hybrid version is

rather special.

For one you get all the benefits

of that fabulous smooth engine

and all the power it generates, as

well as the economy benefits of

the petrol/electric hybrid system.

The RX450h is the rangetopping

model in the eight-model

series, there are four non-hybrids

and four hybrids. All have recently

undergone a fairly healthy

facelift and upgrade.

I covered many of the additions

in my RX350 article in January.

However, the changes consist

mostly of a refresh around the

frontal area and the inclusion of a

bit of extra kit.

One of the new features are the

clever adaptive headlights that

dim automatically when another

car approaches at night and will

aim towards the left hand side of

the road for greater visibility.

Elsewhere, the RX450h is the

large five or seven-seat sport

utility vehicle that tempts with

its onboard space, style, elegance

and luxury.

It also has to be remembered

that the RX450h is a hybrid, you

tend to forget that, it rides and

drives much like its non-hybrid

stablemate. Sport utility vehicles

have become the car of choice

for many buyers globally, and

the RX450h is there for those

who like the idea of a luxurious

medium-to-large wagon, with the

added benefit of being environmentally-friendly.

The hybrid system is traditional

from the Toyota/Lexus manufacturing

system. The petrol engine

starts automatically when the

electric system is under load, such

as immediate acceleration or to

maintain momentum. Petrol power

also provides the generation

to keep recharging the batteries,

although there is some regeneration

available on deceleration.

The entire drive system

operates seamlessly, and in the

RX450h drive is sent to all four

wheels through continuously

variable transmission. The ratio

spread encourages economy

as well as the gearing variation

needed for sealed and off-the-seal

travel. Paddle-shift selectors will

also lock the gearing into one of

the pre-set steps.

The RX450h is a definite lure

for those who like clean and

green, and infrequent stops to fill

up at the pumps. Lexus claims

a 5.7-litre per 100km (50mpg)

combined cycle figure for the

Limited version, as evaluated.

I couldn’t get anywhere near

that, my driving style is way too

vigorous; however the fuel usage

readouts were constantly listing

around a respectable 8.1l/100km

(35mpg) with 6l/100km (47mpg)

available at a constant 100km/h.

Those familiar with V6 power

won’t be disappointed with the

hybrid RX’s performance. It is

still capable of a 7.7sec standstill

to 100km/h time and will lunge

• Price – Lexus RX450h,

$126,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4890mm; width,

1895mm; height, 1685mm

• Configuration – V6,

four-wheel-drive, 3456cc,

230kW, 335Nm, CVT

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.7sec

• Fuel usage – 5.6l/100km

through an overtaking manoeuvre

in 5.5sec.

That is due to the high torque

figure the hybrid system produces.

Lexus claims 335Nm (230kW),

and if you take into account that

electric power has maximum

torque from the moment it starts

to produce, the result is instant acceleration

with constant momentum

from that point on..

Recently, I’ve been making

regular expeditions to the South

Canterbury town of Fairlie, I

used the RX450h for one of those

journeys, simply because it was

an ideal car for those fabulous

roads and one which would

replicate the type of driving

many families would use a big

SUV for, it is an adept highway

cruiser and it handles the tight

and twisty challenges with much

dignity.

The RX series, as a whole,

epitomises the luxury Lexus

buying experience, it is a versatile

family wagon for the everyday

role, yet it also pleases the buyer

with its plush interior and high

level of specification.

Lexus has interesting sales

figures for the RX, not only is

it the largest selling model in

the company’s range, the hybrid

accounts for 30 per cent of RX

sales.

UPGRADES: The RX series has had a fairly healthy facelift inside and out for 2020.

LEXUS

RX450h:

Hybrid

driveline

with V6

engine.

I can see why, the two variants

I have evaluated in a short space

of time have reinforced my desire

for the Lexus product. So much

so that I tell all of those who are

interested in what I drive that I

am a Lexus owner, albeit one that

is nearing 20 years old.

That car still feels tight and

mechanically sound, given its age.

That’s the reason why I’m reluctant

to part with it, it’s one of the

cars that still feels good to drive

and has reliability and reputation

on its side.

The entire RX series carries

the pampering elements that

makes Lexus the sophisticated car

maker it has carved out a huge

reputation for.

At $126,900 (add $900 for

seven seats) the 450h tops out

the RX series, although $116,400

will get you into the hybrid RX

range.

weeK SIx: Taking the next step up

This week you are going to use the fitness

you have built up in the last 5 weeks. You should now

feel comfortable with the rhythm and technique of

the jogging movement and you can maintain this for

a longer period of time (this applies especially for the

beginners group). For the intermediate group there

is a bit of pace change at the Monday and Friday run.

Remember the different training intensity zones?

Zone 1, easy: this is a pace whereby you are not too

puffed and the talk test is not even a test. At this stage

this is the zone you spent most of your time in as it will

give you some initial conditioning without the risk of

soreness or muscle strain.

Zone 2, steady: this is slightly faster than easy; it can

also be called a “firm” pace. It takes a bit more effort to

talk but you can still form sentences without having to

take an extra breath.

Zone 3, moderately hard: this is the pace where you

need that extra breath to finish your sentence. You can

still talk and jog at the same time but it becomes more

laborious so you tend to shut up and concentrate more

on your rhythm and holding your pace.

Zone 4 and 5 are for the competitive athletes only and

do not apply to the beginners or intermediate group.

In these zones the oxygen supply does not keep up

with the oxygen demand so you get really puffed to the

extent that you cannot have a conversation. This pace

interferes with the enjoyment of what you are doing

and is not necessary if your main goal is to finish the

event rather then competing.

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

Many of you will be stretching vigorously

before and/or after your training session.

You do this because others are doing it

as well. There is not much evidence that a

conventional stretching routine prevents

injury or keeps you flexible. There is no

real need for stretching unless you have

a specific problem with particular muscle

groups and you have been advised by

a physiotherapist or doctor to stretch.

The most effective form of stretching for

flexibility is yoga, but you will have to do

it on a daily basis and for a minimum of 20

minutes and for most of us it will not make

us better runners.

JOINING FORCES: Coastal Spirit administration manager Rowena Scherrer and Linwood

rugby manager Aaron Flynn are confident of making Linfield Park work as a home for

football and rugby.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

Football finds home

at iconic rugby ground

• By Gordon Findlater

ONE OF the city’s most iconic

rugby grounds is now the new

home for one of Christchurch’s

top football sides.

Linfield Park – the home of

Linwood Rugby – will now also

be the home of Coastal Spirit

Football Club. This winter season

the number one ground will

host both Linwood’s premier

side in the metro competition

as well as Coastal Spirit’s firstteam

in the Mainland Premier

League.

On March 1, Coastal Spirit

will become a tenant at the Linfield

Cultural Recreational

Sports Club. The agreement

came about with Coastal Spirit

needing an upgrade on their

current facilities at Cuthberts

Green, and Linfield requiring

additional revenue to maintain

their clubrooms and ground.

In recent years the No. 1 pitch

at Linfield Park has become

widely regarded as one of the

city’s best rugby turfs. Last year

Coastal’s premier side played

their home matches at English

Park due to the pitch at Cuthberts

Green not being up to the

standard they would like to play

on. Coastal Spirit football development

manager Gary Bennett

says the move to Linfield will

add more of a homely feeling to

the matches.

“English Park is great, but it

takes away the club feel. You

want to get everyone back to

your clubrooms and keep that

club feel. The other thing is that

we have to pay for English Park,”

said Bennett.

Coastal Spirit were based at

FACILITIES: Linfield Park’s number one ground and

clubrooms are widely regarded as one of the best in

Christchurch.

Linfield for four years when they

were first established from 2007.

However, the relationship didn’t

work and due to frustration over

having limited access to the clubrooms

and number one ground

they moved to Cuthberts Green.

There are a few out there who

are still hesitant about it, but we

have to do something to spice it

up. It’s becoming the way forward.

A lot of clubs overseas do

duel sports and memberships,”

said Coastal Spirit administration

manager Rowena Scherrer.

“It was about facilities and trying

to do something to improve

our situation without spending

too much money.”

Both parties admit that in the

past football and rugby haven’t

worked well together. However,

Scherrer and Linfield/Linwood

club manager Aaron Flynn

believes the two clubs can have

the right approach to make the

relationship work.

“As long as we get things in

place and all have good communication

it will work fine,”

said Flynn.

The former Crusader says

he’s already enjoyed having

the Coastal premier men’s side

training at Linfield this month,

but will have to touch up on

some of his vocabulary before

Coastal move their office in next

month.

“I’ve already been told off. I

keep calling it soccer and they

all yell at me that it’s football,”

said Flynn.

“I’ve been down to a few football

trainings. They’re a bit small some

of them, but a couple of them are

pretty quick. They’d go good on

the wing in a rugby game.”

The No. 1 pitch at Linfield will

permanently have rugby posts

in for the winter season. For

football, goals will be placed in

front of the rugby posts meaning

it will play at a dimension of

around 95m in length. It’s

understood black lines will mark

the football pitch and white lines

mark the rugby pitch.

Barrett v Lindberg

– who can hit

a golf ball the

longest distance?

WHEN YOU come to the

realisation that a week from now

Beauden Barrett is going to be

a genuine chance at out-driving

his professional playing partner,

it’s hard to decipher if Super

Rugby or the New Zealand Open

has become the bigger laughing

stock.

Next week Barrett will be one

of the star attractions at the

New Zealand Open as a pro-am

ambassador. He has been paired

with one of the tournament’s fellow

drawcards – Swedish LPGA

Tour regular Pernilla Lindberg.

It appears after years of marketing

itself as an event featuring

former cricket and rugby players,

they’ve added yet another genius

idea which will surely get New

Zealand golf fans fizzing to get to

The Hills course in Queenstown

by pulling out the gender diversity

card.

It’s no secret that the pro-am –

which this year features the likes

of Shane Warne, Stephen Fleming,

Barrett, Sean Fitzpatrick and

Chris Harris – is a relative point

of difference. Many people seem

to get off watching some of their

sporting heroes from yesteryear

swing a golf club.

However, combining that

methodology with the sexually

diverse card seems a step to far

in combining PC madness with

PR blah blah to stupor us into

believing the country’s premier

golf event hasn’t become completely

irrelevant.

It’s also not like having an

opportunity to watch one of the

women’s game’s top players is

new to us. Golfing relevance in

this country has literally clung

onto Lydia Ko like the dweeb at

school sucking up to the popular

kid.

In a press release announcing

Lindberg’s inclusion, NZ Open

tournament director Michael

Glading said: “We live in an age

that is now more open than ever

to new ideas and innovation.”

Some kudos has to be given

to some of the thinking outside

the box due to being unable to

attract any international players

of note.

It’s also worth noting we live

in an age that allows the open

to secure one of the world’s top

rugby players during the middle

of their club season.

When Barrett moved to the

woeful Blues it should have been

a huge boost to our premier

rugby competition.

However, any hype around

the move quickly fizzled out

with Barrett taking a sabbatical

and not planning to play for

the Blues until mid-April when

the competition will be a dozen

rounds in.

The fact Barrett is being teed

up as one of the major drawcards

at the New Zealand Open while

his Blues teammates are slogging

it in South Africa is a joke for

Super Rugby.

Almost as laughable, is the

possibility Barrett may out-drive

his professional playing partner

which also gives some insight

to the state of our national

golf open. Lindberg’s average

driving distance on tour this

year is 230m. Assuming Barrett

as capable of walloping the odd

drive like many other natural

athletes, it’s a darn good chance.

Hewett takes up coaching

position with Brighton

• By Gordon Findlater

NEW BRIGHTON have

pulled off a coup in their

new-look coaching team with

the appointment of former

Crusaders assistant and

Southland head coach Dave

Hewett.

The former All Blacks and

Crusaders prop will be the side’s

set-piece coach for the upcoming

premier metro season. The

opportunity came about after

the forwards coach the club

had lined up pulled out in late

January. New Brighton floated

around a few names and decided

to reach out to Hewett. Almost

to their surprise, he was keen to

help out.

Last year Hewett resigned

from his position at Southland

due to the lack of time he was

able to spend with his family in

Christchurch.

“It got to a point where I really

enjoyed the rugby and enjoyed

Invercargill, but I didn’t enjoy

being away from my family. I

did that for two years and got

back to Christchurch three times

during that six month period of

the Mitre 10 Cup. It just got to

the point where it was too much

being away from the family,” said

Hewett.

“I’ve been coaching or playing

professionally for 21 years

and I decided actually I need a

break and I want to be back in

Christchurch with my family.”

However, he says taking some

time out of coaching professionally

doesn’t mean he wants to take a

break from coaching completely.

“I was always of the opinion

Canty claim national junior touch title

• By Gordon Findlater

CANTERBURY’S under-16 boys

side created history by becoming

the province’s first team to win a

national junior title.

The side achieved the feat

in Auckland on Sunday by

defeating Manawatu 9-6 in the

final at the Bunnings Junior

National Touch Championships.

Canterbury have had plenty of

success in the past at open level.

However, the under-16 boys side

are the first junior side to show

the strong North Island sides can

be overcome.

“This is the springboard to

show those junior teams that if

you do the right things and you

prepare the right way you can

go and knock off anybody,” said

Touch Canterbury general manager

Grant Robertson.

“It’s always been seen as a

tough challenge to go up against

the North Island teams. The

boys probably didn’t have the

confidence going into it, but that

was what we quickly saw after a

that I would help out during

this time that I was having a

break whether it be with a club

or school in Christchurch, but

I didn’t want to commit to a

campaign.”

Not being able to fully commit

is something New Brighton saw

being able to work for them.

Hewett plans to work with the

premier side one training per

week, and elsewhere when he

can. The club’s rugby development

officer Andy Gibson says

it’s something that will work for

both parties.

“It’s a win-win for us because

the reality is we only need him to

look after set-piece and he’ll obviously

give advice and his view

on other things we’re doing,” said

Gibson.

Hewett does have club allegiances

in Christchurch, having

that belief.”

In pool play Canterbury went

(8-5), Whanganui (6-1), Te Tai

Tokerau (12-4), Waikato B (9-4),

played for Sydenham during his

career. One of his three sons currently

plays for the ‘bus drivers’

which has led to some debate at

home.

“I got cornered by my son saying

‘what are you coaching New

Brighton for’ because he’s playing

colts for Sydenham. I just said I

didn’t mind who I was helping

I just wanted to help the game

and I got asked by Brighton and

hence why I’m helping Brighton,”

said Hewett.

Another reason for the break

from professional coaching is for

Hewett to be able to spend more

time running his residential

homes.

He says coaching professionally

again in the future is

something he would like to do if

presents itself. For now though,

it will be family time mixed with

grassroots rugby occupying the

“I’m just looking forward to

being involved and hoping I can

add something to the Brighton

team,” said Hewett.

“I’m still coaching and I’m still

actively developing and learning,

but just at a different level.”

Brighton have been one of

the metro competition’s biggest

achievers over the past decade.

Following the departure of long

standing coach Scott Pawson

last year they have gone about

assembling an impressive

coaching team for this year’s

premier team. Former Manawatu

assistant coach Lewis Williams

has been named as the head

coach, while Ross Martin will

coach the backs.

and a draw with Counties Manukau

(3-3). They then booked their

spot in the final with a tightly

fought 6-5 win over Waikato.

In the final Manawatu took

an early lead before Canterbury

answered back to lead 5-3 at halftime.

They then took command

of the match early in the second

half with tries to captain Isaac

Hutchinson and instrumental

playmaker Tom Ruwhiu.

There was a lot to put the boys

under pressure, but they had a

very calm demeanour. A lot of

that is the work the coaches were

able to do in the lead up and

during the game to keep them

focused,” said Robertson.

Canterbury have sent teams to

the junior nationals since 2010.

Previously Canterbury players

played in either a South Island

or Mainland selection team. It’s

not believed any of those teams

previously won national titles.

The Canterbury under-18 girls

team also picked up a medal by

finishing third. After a 4-5 loss

to Counties Manukau in the

semi-final, they bounced back to

defeat North Harbour 4-2 in the

play-off for third.

The under-18 boys and

under-16 girls both finished

seventh. The under-16 mixed side

finished 12th.

OUT: Crusaders coach Scott Robertson says Scott Barrett will not play in

Friday’s game against the Highlanders. ​

Crusaders skipper to

miss southern derby

• By Gordon Findlater

THE CRUSADERS will

be without captain Scott

Barrett for tomorrow

night’s home southern

derby against the

Highlanders

Barrett sustained a

knock to the knee in the

Crusaders 25-8 win over

the Blues at Eden Park last

week, resulting in damage

to his medial ligament.

Coach Scott Robertson

says Barrett could have

been played if it was a final.

However, he has decided to

make the decision to give

Barrett two weeks to get

right with the Crusaders

having a bye following the

Highlanders clash.

His absence means

fullback David Havili will

captain the side. A reshuffle

in the forwards sees the

experienced Luke Romano

paired with Mitchell Dunshea.

Lock/loose forward

Cullen Grace - who starts

at No 6 - and Ethan Roots

on the bench will provide

cover at lock.

The young fellows that

have come in have stood

up. We’re looking forward

to a debut for Ethan Roots.

He’s young, he’s tough and

training really well,” said

Robertson.

Roots is the latest

debutant to get an earlyseason

call-up. Last week

Timaru youngster Grace

was impressive in his first

full 80min performance

against the Blues. “It’s obviously

pretty intense and

a step up from what I’ve

been playing, but I’m really

enjoying the challenge,”

said Grace.

The only other change to

the forwards sees Michael

Alaalatoa start at tighthead

prop and Isi Tuungafasi

comes onto the bench due

to Oliver Jager being unavailable

after sustaining

a head knock against the

Blues.

The only change in

the backs sees Leicester

Faingaanuku replace

Will Jordan on the bench.

Meanwhile, Robertson

says, depending on how

this week’s training goes,

Richie Mo’unga could be

considered for a return to

kicking duties over Havili.

The Crusaders and

Highlanders have produced

some of the best

Super Rugby matches in

recent history and there’s

no indication tomorrow

should be any different.

The Highlanders struggled

in their opening

match against the Sharks,

but battled back for an impressive

last-ditch win over

the Brumbies in Canberra

at the weekend.

“We’ve had some great

battles. We’re expecting

all that again,” said Robertson.

They bounced back

really well with their

performance against the

Brumbies, who are so

tough to beat over there.

They stayed in the fight,

they were committed and

they probably had that

belief in them that came

out right in the end to get

a result. They’ll be buoyant

after that,” said Robertson.

The southern derby will

also be an extra-special

occasion with Crusaders

players from the past 25

years assembling for a

post-match celebration

where they will be presented

with the tohu - the

team’s new logo.

Robertson anticipates a

good showing from some

of the team’s former players

off the field. “Caleb

Ralph is there, he is always

entertaining and was

usually last man standing.

There was a few boys that

used to do the Holy Grail

in the day,” said Robertson.

The Best Kept Secrets

to Selling Your Home

Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the

only impression

No matter how good the interior of your home looks,

buyers have already judged your home before they walk

through the door. You never have a second chance to

make a first impression. It’s important to make people

feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the

house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive

shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry ways are also

important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and

keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by

putting in a small bench or a vase of fresh-cut flowers.

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show

Your house needs to be “show-ready” at all times – you

never know when your buyer is going to walk through

the door. You have to be available whenever they want

to come see the place and it has to be in tip-top shape.

Don’t leave dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher

cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure

there are no dust bunnies in the corners. It’s a little

inconvenient, but it will get your house sold.

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first

You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling

your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of

remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part

of it is that you’ll probably get 85% of your money back.

It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops

where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking

price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most

inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new

cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can

present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start

envisioning their own style. If you have a little money

to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why

one? Because when people see one high-end appliance

they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates

the kitchen.

Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your house

One of the most important things to do when selling

your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal

stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can

imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your

stuff – put it in storage. This includes family photos,

memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes.

Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best

showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space.

Selling Secret #5: Don’t over-upgrade

Quick fixes before selling always pay off. Mammoth

Oamaru

look at

this

Over 70 replies to one ‘For Sale’ ad and so many

disappointed buyers around $400,000. If you

are thinking of selling, I’ve had over 50 years

experience and cost effective low commission.

OYDS REAL ESTATE

Phone: 027 228 7002

LREA 2008. The agent with 50+ years experience whose

commission is half most firms.

makeovers, not so much. You probably won’t get your

money back if you do a huge improvement project before

you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates

that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh

coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy

some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles,

cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track,

fix leaky faucets and clean the grout.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters

You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts

of potential buyers, but you’d be wrong. Not everybody

is a dog- or cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your

home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty

litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes.

It will give buyers the impression that your house is not

clean. If you’re planning an open home don’t leave your

pets around.

Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field

A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong real estate agent.

Make sure you have an agent who is totally informed.

They must constantly monitor the multiple listing

service (MLS), know what properties are going on the

market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find

an agent who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one

has many tools to get your house sold.

Selling Secret #8: Light it up

Maximize the light in your home. After location, good

light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they

want in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the

windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage

of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let

in sunshine. Do what you have to do make your house

bright and cheery – it will make it more sellable.

Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets

Storage is something every buyer is looking for and

can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of

your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there.

Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and

cabinets clean and tidy.
