Damaged graves could cost family

• By Matt Slaughter

LYNETTE KING is shocked

by the state of the grave sites

of her relatives at Bromley

Cemetery.

Mrs King’s great-grandmother,

great-grandfather and two of

their sons, one who died in World

War 1, are buried there and their

gravestones are damaged.

Mrs King said her son-in-law

Steve Berry is a concrete layer and

he wants to do the repairs for free

himself.

The city council has said

this can’t happen and Mrs

King’s family will have to

pay a city council-approved

contractor if they want the graves

repaired.

Mr Berry has installed

headstones at Linwood

Cemetery and Harewood Memorial

Gardens and Crematorium in the

past and estimates going through a

city council-approved repairer will

cost about $5000.

“I do a bit of work for them [the

city council] and when they do get

contractors to do work it is, I’d say,

extravagant, but they may not say

that,’’ he said.

Said city council community

parks manager Al Hardy: “Only

an approved contractor for

monumental work may undertake

work associated with any

monument (including concrete

kerbing or covering) in a council

cemetery.” • Turn to page 4

UNFAIR: Lynette King is mad her family will have to pay if they want the graves of four relatives fixed in Bromley Cemetery.

Power bills should drop for winter

Companies

set to pass-on

Orion cut

• By Jess Gibson

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

of about $3 off a monthly power

bill. She would expect the price

drop to be passed through by

energy retailers.

“We would be very surprised if

they were fudging the numbers

and trying to use it as an opportunity

to put up prices by an

equivalent amount.”

A Mercury NZ Ltd spokeswoman

said the company will be

passing on the reduction in lines

charges for customers.

“We will be communicating

directly with our customers

shortly about what this means

Meridian Energy is also likely

to drop its pricing.

Said a Meridian spokeswoman:

“We are still working

through pricing but historically

we have always passed through

any changes by the network

She said Meridian Energy will

have an answer for customers

within the next few weeks.

A Contact Energy spokeswoman

the company is working on

price changes across the country

but did not have anything to

share in terms of its approach at

the moment.

Said Orion chief executive Rob

Jamieson: “The key component

of the price reduction is the

lower interest rate environment,

has factored in to our cost

of distribution.”

Parents

warned of

child sex

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.”

Police had also been advised.

OVERGROWN: Lynette King is concerned with the state of

Bromley Cemetery.

Graves ‘have to

be respected’

• From page 1

Said Mrs King: “I didn’t know

that we had great-grandparents

at Bromley Cemetery so we went

and had a look and the grave was

disgusting. It had all fallen over,

the headstone was off, there had

been nothing done to it.

“They [the city council] won’t

let us tidy that grave and yet it’s

a disgrace, that whole cemetery,”

she said.

One of Mrs King’s relatives’

headstones has fallen on its face

and the family wants to prop it up

again so people can see the name

on it. Mrs King said they’ve been

told this also has to be done by a

city council-approved contractor.

Mrs King believes families of

people buried at the cemetery

should have the right to fix the

graves of their loved ones themselves.

“These are family members.

These people came from Ireland,

came over on a boat . . . started

businesses, they had 12 children.

They have to be respected. If I had

a grave and it was in that sort of

repair I’d be disappointed in my

family that they didn’t at least

tidy it up and make it respectable

so people could read who they

were in that grave. That’s all we

want.”

Pupils encouraged to ride

EAST Christchurch schools will

take part in Walk or Wheel to

These schools will include

Whitau Linwood and Shirley

Primary schools.

The city council is encouraging

families to leave their cars at

home that day and walk, cycle,

scooter, or skate to school.

Said city council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas: “Transport accounts

for more than half of the city’s

greenhouse gas emissions. If we

can get people using their cars

less and active modes of travel

more, it could make a significant

difference to our carbon footprint.’

“It has been proven that active

travel to school can increase

children’s concentration by up

to four hours. Studies also show

that children who travel actively

to school have better spatial

awareness and more road sense

than those who are driven.

“Walking or wheeling to school

has environmental, financial and

health benefits so we’re hoping

that all schools in Christchurch

will support this initiative. If it

Quake study looks at long-term effects

• 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 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.

In total, 120 people will have

their brains scanned, 60 from

Christchurch and 60 from

Dunedin, who were not exposed

to the events.

The two-year study is ongoing

and expected to be complete in

June next year.

Based on overseas findings, Dr

Borlase expects the research to

show participant’s brains have an

‘increased functional response.’

“So the brain activates in response

to a triggering event more

than you would see with someone

who hasn’t been exposed to

any trauma. So that’s what we are

expecting to see, but we haven’t

got there yet. We haven’t got

enough brain scans to say that is

what we are seeing in our group,

yet.

A scheme called the International

Affective Picture System

is being used during the brain

scans.

“It is a series of validated

STUDY: New Zealand Brain Institute’s Nadia

Borlase is part of the study probing long-term

effects of quake survivors. ​

pictures which are designed to

elicit an emotional response. So

we might show them a picture

of a car crash, a burns victim or

weaponry. What we are looking

for is how their brain responds

to the picture, in comparison to

a coffee cup or a flower so something

completely innocuous.

“So what we’re expecting is, because

the Canterbury people have

been through such a stressful

time when they see the not very

nice pictures, their brains will

respond much more than say, for

example, our control group in

Dunedin would.

“We basically don’t want to say

oh gosh, you’ve lived through a

terrible time and you are completely

fine, off you go. We don’t

have the research to support that

statement at the moment and

that’s why this research is so important,

we don’t know what the

long term implications are yet,”

Dr Borlase said.

The study, funded by The

Neurological Foundation, is

being conducted by the New

Zealand Brain Research Institute

and Department of Psychological

Medicine at Otago University’s

Cumnor Tce

could become

one-way

• By Jess Gibson

A NEW cycleway connecting

Heathcote with the central city

could see a portion of Cumnor

Tce in Woolston turned into a

one-way street for motor vehicles.

The city council is asking for

public feedback on a proposal

to change the section of road

between Chapmans Rd and

Maunsell St.

Reasons the one-way option is

being explored include the street

being relatively narrow in places,

speed concerns and the safety of

pedestrians.

The change is being carried out

as part of the Heathcote Expressway

Major Cycle Route, which

will allow travel across Ferry Rd

and through Opawa, Woolston,

Charleston and Phillipstown.

The infrastructure, transport

and environment committee

approved construction of the

Heathcote Expressway from Ferry

Rd to Truscotts Rd at meetings in

2017 and 2018.

The committee also agreed to

explore options for increasing the

width of the cycleway on Cumnor

Tce, including having it become a

one-way street.

•Submissions are open until

March 9.

Concern over health of aviary birds

• By Matt Slaughter

COLLEEN PHILIP and Phil

Pearson believe birds are dying

because city council staff are

not tending to the aviary at

Woodham Park, Linwood, often

enough.

The husband and wife used

to love visiting the aviary but

say it has become infested with

mice. They are concerned there

is less fruit for birds to eat and

greenery to give them shade

than there used to be.

The couple are worried quails

and other birds may have died as

a result of this.

However, city council head

of parks Andrew Rutledge said

these factors have not killed any

birds in the aviary.

Said Mrs Philip, who works at

Orana Wildlife Park: “We’re not

sure exactly when, my husband

thinks it was some time maybe

a year ago, the standard just

dropped dramatically and they

[birds] were getting nothing.

They weren’t getting any extra

feed, they weren’t getting fruit

and vegetables in their hanging

trays.

“We’re really concerned that

we’re seeing, we think, quite a

high attrition rate, it’s not just

the quail.

“There was a huge mouse

invasion into the aviary and

it stinks, it still stinks.

“There are quails on the

ground with these mice scuttling

all around them,” she said.

Mrs Philip has seen fewer canaries

and finches in the aviary

than in previous years.

Said Mr Pearson: “There’s

a very, very basic level of care

which is almost degrading

the lives of the birds in the

aviary. They’ve got the mouse

infestation which is actually

putting them [birds] under a

lot of stress but actually putting

them under threat because of

course, the stuff that the mice

are bringing is really detrimental

to the birds and I suspect that

a lot of birds have died because

of it.”

However, Mr Rutledge said:

UPSET: Phil

Pearson

“No birds have died due to the

mice or as a result of the food.

“We are exploring all options

available to ensure the health

and well-being of the birds.

“A pest control contractor has

been engaged to bring the mouse

population under control.

“A handful of greens are given

to the birds every time they

are fed.”

Cat living happily with eight lives to spare

• By Sophie Cornish

ONE YEAR ago, a week-old

kitten was tapped inside a shoe

box and thrown from a moving

vehicle, sparking national

outrage.

Fast forward 13 months,

Brighton the kitten, now Taz

the cat, is settling in at his new

home after his foster family “fell

in love” with him and decided to

make him a permanent part of

the family.

Taz’s disturbing case gained

widespread media coverage and

investigations by SPCA and

police forensic teams followed,

but the offender was never

found.

A witness who saw the incident

on New Brighton Rd was

suspicious of the shoe box being

discarded out the window into

a red zone paddock and went to

• By Sophie Cornish

RED ZONE contractors have

been told be on the lookout for

groups stripping fruit trees to sell

for commercial purposes.

A report was made to Land

Information New Zealand last

week by a man who witnessed

a group of people taking “vast

amounts of fruit from trees

in the residential red zone for

commercial purposes,” LINZ

manager land and property Matt

Bradley said.

The witness took photographs

of the cars being used which included

the licence plate numbers.

However, Mr Bradley said

given the information provided,

it would be difficult to investigate

the report further.

ROUGH START: The shoe box

Taz was found in.

investigate, finding Taz, who was

suffering from severe cat flu.

They believed the car involved

was a silver Holden Commodore,

with a brown or marooncoloured

back left door panel.

Said SPCA spokeswoman:

“Despite this, Brighton (Taz)

proved a resilient and happy kitten.

He went on to spend some

time with a foster family and

made a full recovery in a few

short weeks.”

Taz’s foster family said he “instantly

became best friends” with

baby, Ella Rose.

Said Taz’s foster mother Haylie:

“Taz enjoys catching his knitted

mice and loves my daughter, he

will literally follow her everywhere.

I have to shut her bedroom

door at night-time to prevent him

from getting in her cot.

“Ella-Rose loves him just as

much. He loves his food, and

Ella-Rose’s food too, so we have

to keep an eye on him. He is such

a lovely kitten and has really

fitted into our family.”

HAPPY ENDING: Taz,

formerly Brighton, had

a rough start to life after

being thrown from a moving

vehicle. Now, he has a new

family and has “Instantly

become best friends” with

Ella Rose.

Groups strip red zone fruit trees for commercial use

“We take this allegation

seriously and have notified

our contractors, who carry

out regular monitoring of the

residential red zone and have

asked them to keep an eye out

to help prevent this occurring

again.

“These trees were left in the

area for the community to enjoy

free fruit, and we do not condone

them being used for commercial

gain.’’

Last month, city council revealed

a new online map, which

shows the exact location of more

than 6000 fruit and nut trees

around the city which are free for

consumption.

But, the information was given

with a warning, urban foragers

should follow foraging etiquette,

meaning people should care for

the trees and leave enough for the

next person.

Shirley duo make

NZ volleyball team

• By Jacob Page

TWO SHIRLEY volleyball

players have been named

in the New Zealand junior

team for the Thailand Youth

Championships in April.

Former Shirley Boys’ High

School captain Troy Hulston

and current

captain Josh

Watson have

been named in

the 12-strong

squad.

Eighteen-yearold

Hulston said

Troy

Hulston

Tuesday February 25 2020

he had been

targeting this

opportunity for

two years.

“There’s been a fair bit of work

that has gone into this so it was

nice to be selected.”

The squad will play games

against Thailand club teams

with the prospect of other

Pacific-based teams likely to

feature as well.

Hulston, a setter, was part of

the Shirley Club team which won

the national championships last

year and was part of the Shirley

Boys’ High School volleyball

programme since 2015.

Watson, 17, said representing

his country had always been a

goal.

BIG MOMENT: Shirley’s Josh Watson (right) will get an

international opportunity.

“It mean’s a lot to be selected,”

he said.

“This team has been something

I have been working

towards since I was in year 10

and started to take volleyball

seriously.”

He said he was most looking

forward to testing himself

against the Thai players who are

considered agile and naturally

athletic.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

“It’s a chance to test myself

and hopefully the start of something

cool.’’

He said the volleyball culture

at Shirley Boys’ High School

had helped him elevate his

game to a point where he was

good enough to earn the selection.

“I just encourage everyone to

give it a go. It may not be the

biggest sport but it is growing.”

CASHMERE HIGH School

softball pitcher Cherie Inwood

has been named in the Junior

White Sox team, for the women’s

world cup in Lima, Peru in

August.

The 16-strong team was

named last Wednesday after

almost four months of trials.

The event runs from August 21

to August 30.

Cherie was a key figure for

Canterbury at the under-18

nationals in January before being

one of the first nine players

named in the national junior

squad for the Oceania qualifiers

later the same month,

She has been named alongside

Halswell teammate Alyssa Lory,

who plays the infield.

New Zealand coach Kiri Shaw

said it had not been an easy process

to narrow down the squad.

“We are very excited about

this team after a lengthy but

thorough selection process.

“The opportunity for squad

members to play in a number of

tournaments where they have

been exposed to a higher level of

play and compete against more

experienced women has been an

invaluable exercise,’’ Shaw said.

“Just as important were

“We have learnt a lot about

players as well as the things we

want to implement in terms of

the team culture we want in

place for this Junior White Sox

team.

“This was an extremely tough

team to select. But it was a good

problem to have. Consistency,

versatility, attitude and improvement

were the basis of our final

16 women roster for the world

cup,” she said.

Tasty Bites

One-pot wonders to keep the summer vibe going

• By Ian Knott

With the recent resurgence

of warmer temperatures

there’s no need to

prematurely put the

outdoor furniture away just

yet. Keep that summer vibe

going with these crowdpleasing

one-pot wonders

Slow-cooker pulled pork

Serves 6

Ingredients

2 onions, halved and sliced

1 Tbsp smoked paprika

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp garlic salt

2 tsp sea salt flakes

2 Tbsp Dijon mustard

3 Tbsp red wine vinegar

2 Tbsp tomato purée

2 Tbsp soft light brown sugar

1.5kg boneless pork shoulder,

skin and excess fat removed

To serve

Soft white rolls

Coleslaw

Sliced red onions

Sliced gherkins

Directions

Heat the slow cooker to high.

Put the onions in the bottom of

the slow cooker.

Mix together the spices, salts,

mustard, vinegar, tomato purée

and sugar. Rub all over the pork

then sit on top of the onions.

Cook for 8 hours. Remove the

pork and shred into chunks. Mix

in 4-5 Tbsp of cooking liquid

from the slow cooker.

Serve in buns with coleslaw,

sliced red onions and gherkins, if

you like.

Halloumi and vegetable

tray-bake

Ingredients

4 courgettes, cut into small

chunks

1 red onion, cut into slim wedges

3 large garlic cloves, skins left on

3 Tbsp olive oil

300g cherry tomatoes

250g halloumi, sliced

CROWD-PLEASERS: (Left) Slow-cooker pulled pork,

(above) halloumi and vegetable tray-bake

¼ tsp cumin seeds

Dried chilli flakes a few pinches

(optional)

To serve

Flatbreads

Hummus

Hot sauce (optional)

Directions

Heat the oven to 200 deg C/180

(fan-forced). Toss the courgettes,

onion and garlic with the olive

oil and tip into a large, shallow

baking dish. Season well and

roast for 10min.

Stir in the cherry tomatoes

and sit the halloumi slices on

top. Sprinkle over the cumin

seeds and chilli flakes, if using.

Cook for another 15min until the

tomatoes start to burst and release

juice, and the halloumi is turning

golden.

Squeeze the garlic cloves out

of their skins and mash into the

oil and juices in the baking dish,

stirring it in. Spoon everything

onto plates and serve with soft

flatbreads and hummus or hot

sauce, if you like.
