A LOOKOUT spot on the Port

Hills has become a dumping

ground.

It started off with smaller litter

like cans, bottles and fast food

waste being left in and around a

car park at the top of Mt Pleasant

Rd, near the intersection with

Summit Rd.

But now, the scale of the

problem has escalated, with

people leaving large piles of

household rubbish and building

waste, says a resident.

Dmitri Rechkunov lives

on Summit Rd and he has

been spending a lot of time

picking up rubbish within a

radius of about 500m around

the area where there are no

public bins.

“I’ve called the city council a

number of times asking them

to put a rubbish bin on the

intersection of Mt Pleasant Rd

and Summit Rd,’’ he said.

from the editor’s desk

Dmitri Rechkunov has a very good point

about rubbish being dumped on the Port

Hills (see page 1).

He lives on Summit Rd and he’s getting

rightly frustrated with people leaving their

rubbish at a lookout spot near the junction

with Mt Pleasant Rd.

But it’s not the only place on the Port Hills where people going

for walks or parking up are leaving their trash.

The Port Hills are an amazing resource, right on the back door

of Christchurch with a web of tracks to walk, run and cycle.

There are places you can park up and look at the incredible views

across the city to the Pacific and out to Southern Alps, and back

down to Lyttelton and the peninsula.

So why spoil it?

Group says estuary pathway

will not harm birdlife

• By Matt Slaughter

THE CHRISTCHURCH 360

Trail group says birdlife will not

be harmed if a pathway is built

along the western edge of the

Avon-Heathcote Ihutai Estuary.

This is based on the final draft

of a Boffa Miskell report commissioned

by the city council

that says: “Actual levels of

disturbance to birds as a result

of the pathway constitute very

low, low or moderate ecological

magnitudes of effect.

“Opportunities to avoid and

minimise these effects are available.”

The trail is 135km so far and

includes walking tracks around

the city’s radius. The section beside

the estuary is one of the last

needed to complete the trail.

Trail chairwoman Judith Millar

said the pathway proposal

includes measures which will

protect birds from threats such

as pedestrians, cyclists and dogs.

However, Avon Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai Trust chairman

Kit Doudney said the trust “absolutely

refute that.”

The trust and Redcliffs

Residents Association are

concerned building the pathway

He wants the pathway built

further away from the estuary

and the city council is investigating

this option.

But Mrs Millar said the current

proposal includes measures to

stop birds from being harmed.

“The [city] council is investigating

mitigation procedures

to deal with the issues that the

estuary trust people raised

and we agree that there should

be measures. We think there

should be screening, we think

that a low barbed wire between

the trail and the pond [estuary]

levee is all that’s necessary.”

Said city council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge: “The pathway

would be flanked by a security

fence several metres to the

pond side of the path, and screen

planting along the estuary

shore. Planting along most of

the estuary shore already

exists; the project is to provide

screening of most of the remaining

gaps.”

Mr Rutledge said additional

protective measures, which

may also be considered include

“educational signage promoting

the site values, dog exclusion

signage, regular monitoring of

compliance, track closure at certain

times” and “vehicle barriers

at entry points.”

Mr Doudney said these measures

won’t work and birds will

suffer.

“Since last winter, we’ve got

new data from a student who

was working over the summer

on bird disturbance. There will

be a massive impact.”

No easy task

narrowing

down squad

• From page 1

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

observations made at under-18

nationals.

“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.

‘Fly-tippers’ could face prosecution

• From page 1

“I still pick up bottles from my

property, people sit on the intersection

drinking beer and throw

them over the fence.”

He said there are a lot of people

walking on Summit Rd who pick

up rubbish and ask to use his

rubbish bin.

“It’s totally fine that [visitors]

use my bin, but you can see how

many people worry about it.”

City council manager of city

streets maintenance Mark Pinner

said staff are aware of the

problem.

“We have received three reports

in the past three days. Two

of these were to report builder

waste and one for household

waste.”

Before this, he said staff

had only received and actioned

only one report in the past 12

months.

“There are no public bins in

the area, and waste, once identified,

is typically removed within

two days.”

He said this type of dumping

is classed as ‘fly-tipping’ and

individuals face prosecution if

caught. Fines range between

$100 and $400 depending on

how much is dumped and what it

contains.

“We encourage the public to

report any such issues. If people

can identify anyone responsible,

we request they provide as much

information as possible so that

we can follow up with them.”

Mt Pleasant is not the only

place which has been treated as a

tip this year.

Bay Harbour News reported in

February that rubbish had been

spilling out of bins at Taylors

Mistake Beach onto the ground

and in January, there were issues

with people dumping green

waste at public areas in Diamond

Harbour.

‘It’s totally fine that

[visitors] use my bin,

but you can see how

many people worry

about it.’

Now, 10 years on, they are preparing

to launch their new exhibition

at the Pumanawa Gallery in the

16.

Through New Eyes features the

latest work from Bella and Demeter

who will use the funds raised

through the sale of their art to travel

to Europe later in the year.

TWIN TALENT: Bella and

Demeter Kenton-Dau will use

funds from the sale of their art to

travel to Europe and to donate

to their favourite long-standing

charity, DogWatch.

A portion of sales will also be

donated to their favourite longstanding

charity DogWatch.

The exhibition runs for a week

and original canvases, prints and

gift cards from their work will be

for sale.

There will be wine to celebrate the

launch at 6pm. Space is limited to

the first 70 people who arrive.

Readers respond to last

week’s article about

Redcliffs Residents’

Association’s ongoing

frustration over rock spoil at

the surface at Clifton Beach

Garry Smith – Sumner locals

are a mad bunch all looking for

their 10min of fame. I would

rather be avoiding the doggy

poos than the rocks on the

beach. Walking bare feet is such

a challenging exercise at Sumner

with so many obstacles to avoid

like rocks, crabs, doggy poos . . .

when will the bureaucracy end.

Rosemary Neave – I appreciate

the commitment of

Redcliffs resident Pat McIntosh in

advocating for our area. However,

I believe the concern about rocks

being exposed at Clifton Beach

is not something that money

should be spent on at this time.

Yes, maybe shoes need to be worn

– but within a stone’s throw the

shoes can be removed and toes

wiggle in the sand in beautiful

Sumner beach. Let’s support Linwood,

Phillipstown and Brighton

… where more investment is

needed desperately.

Sean Thomson – I’m going

to try to write this without swearing

though many expletives can

be imagined in the background.

This is such a non-problem. So

there are rocks there – they affect

a pathetic percentage of the beach.

If there is such an issue, use the

second set of steps. And they’re

getting covered by sand? Great,

that’s what we want surely. You

can’t complain that they’re getting

covered up while also complaining

that the situation hasn’t

changed. Instead of monitoring

at least once a month why not go

and pick up the ones that really

annoy you. For the council to

spend ratepayers money to “fix”

this would be ludicrous. Maybe

Those complaining would like to

offer to do something about it.

Laurie O’Neill – My walking

buddy and I continue to wonder

what all the fuss is about. The

very small section of rocks appear

to be a natural part of the

beach environment and afford no

inconvenience when some form

of footwear is worn. I suspect

the complainants are a tiny [but

quite vocal] section of locals with

nothing better to do. As usually

happens the vast majority, who

see no problem here, will not

respond but just hope sanity prevails.

The beach, east from Shag

Rock, with its new rock wall and

the rock bund in the background

[now partially covered in flourishing

small trees and shrubs] is

aesthetically far more attractive

than the original. The designers,

engineers and contractor deserve

honest credit for this excellent

project.

Julie Riley responds to the

February 19 article about

about Lyttelton’s Mitre

Tavern, which has become

increasingly derelict since it

was closed due to damage

from the February 22, 2011,

earthquake

In addition to the Mitre Tavern

being an eyesore for so long l

would like to draw attention to

the guard fences that surround

it. My partner is 81 years old and

I’m 75. We find with our slow

mobility there are safety issues

where we are forced to walk up

Canterbury St on the road. Also

when driving and turning right

onto Norwich Quay the red barriers

block vision to oncoming right

hand traffic. The sooner these

barriers can be moved the better.

Charity yacht race to benefit

Cholmondeley children

A NEW sailing regatta created

to support Cholmondeley

Children’s Centre will see

businesses race around Lyttelton

Harbour.

The event, on March 20, will

be the first charity yacht race to

take place in Christchurch in

more than a decade.

Started by the Naval Point

Club and sponsored by Lyttelton

Port Company, the regatta aims

to bring together the community

behind local children and

families who are in crisis.

Cholmondeley Fundraising

and marketing manager Tanya

Cooke said the race is a unique

way for businesses to show they

care for Canterbury families,

while taking part in a challenging

team competition.

“Seeing the Lyttelton Harbour

community join together to

support our local tamariki and

whānau through this new event

is incredible. Our services are in

high-demand and this regatta

will help usto continue providing

respite and family support to

the more than 500 children that

stay at Cholmondeley each year,”

she said.

GOOD CAUSE: A sailing

regatta on Lyttelton Harbour

will be held on March 20.

With the support of a skipper

and expert crew member, each

team of sailors will traverse a

course through Lyttelton Harbour

and spend three-to-four

hours on the water learning as

they race.

Naval Point Club manager

Richard Matterson said the

event will be a one-of-a-kind

team building activity for businesses

and a great chance to

experience the thrill of sailing.

Lyttelton Port Company is not

only sponsoring the event, but

also entering a team.

The Cholmondeley Sailing

Regatta start at Naval Point Club

Lyttelton at 12.30pm.

Lunch will be included, with

a barbecue dinner and awards

ceremony to be held afterwards

at the club.

on a plan to assign or alter the

names of 13 locations across

Banks Peninsula.

The New Zealand Geographic

Board proposal, requested by

local hapu Rāpaki Rūnanga,

would see Maori names restored

alongside 11 current place names

and would change the names of

two locations.

Land Information New Zealand

ran a public consultation on

the proposal in November and

December.

Feedback received will be

considered by NZGB at its next

meeting on April 2.

NZGB secretary Wendy Shaw

said if there are only supporting

submissions then the board will

make the final decision.

However, if there are

submissions objecting to the

names, and the NZGB doesn’t

agree with them, then the

Minister for Land Information

Eugenie Sage will make the final

decision.

“As such we are unable to say

when final decisions will be made

at this stage in the process,’’ Ms

Shaw said.

If approved, historic Maori

names would be added to existing

names for Cass Peak, Dyers

Pass, King Billy Island, Mansons

Peninsula and Coopers Knob,

among others.

Two proposals are not for dual

names as there were no English

names for those features –

Rapaki and Rapaki Rock.

DILIGENT: Sebastian Fergusson will study a Bachelor of Business while developing his idea of

a more efficient rescue paddle board.

Bid to design a more efficient

surf lifesaving paddle board

FORMER SUMNER Surf

Life Saving Club member

Sebastian Fergusson is using his

scholarship to save lives at sea.

The 18-year-old has won a

scholarship to Gold Coast’s Bond

University to design a more efficient

rescue paddle board.

He will study a Bachelor of

Business while developing his

idea under a transformer scholarship

for student entrepreneurs.

Fergusson has competed in surf

lifesaving since he was seven.

He has won a gold and a

bronze medal at the New Zealand

Surf Life Saving Championships,

and made three finals at

the Australian Surf Life Saving

Championships.

Fergusson said his long-term

goal was to set up a company to

redesign the traditional

surf lifesaving rescue paddle

board.

“Like gears on a bike, I believe

the paddle board design can be

more efficient,” Fergusson said.

“Gears on a bike, you’re climbing

up a hill, you chop down a

gear, it makes it easier.

Fergusson is currently in the

research stage of his project and

intends to test other products

on the market to see how strong

they are and how well they travel

through water, before moving

ahead.

He hopes to be able to use

computer aided design to

maximise a board’s strength and

speed.

Lifeguard benefits

from Aussie

leadership college

TONI CRANKO had a lot

to gain from a prestigious

week-long course at the Surf

Life Saving Australia National

Leadership College.

The Sumner Surf Life Saving

Club member attended the college

in Sydney from February 2

to 8 along with 21 Australians

and James Lloyd from Bay of

Plenty’s Waihi Beach Lifeguard

Services.

The intensive annual leadership

and development programme

recognises the brightest

and best surf lifeguard leaders

aged between 20 and 30.

It is designed to challenge,

inspire and motivate the participants

and involves a range of

leadership activities and challenges.

Cranko said the course was

challenging, fun and very educational.

“A highlight was getting to

connect with different people

and talking about sharing resources

and different ideas that

we can bring back to our own

clubs. Even though we are different

organisations we still have a

lot of similarities.”

Cranko said one of the greatest

takeaways from the college is

the network that has been created

across Australia and New

Zealand.

“We now have this group of

people who we can go to, to

share ideas, seek advice and

Toni Cranko ​

discuss problems.”

The week gave Cranko the

confidence to back herself as a

leader, to try new things, challenge

people and ideas.

Being involved in, and seeing

how Surf Life Saving Australia

runs its national leadership programme

was really valuable, she

said.

“I plan to bring back some

of these ideas for our national

leadership programme – BP

Leaders for Life.”

Success for Redcliffs Mt Pleasant Bowling Club

Bowls Canterbury Finals weekend on 2/3

February. Four members from our club Amy

Caddie, Margaret Bunce, Annabel Walmisley

and Jude Main played in the Women’s

Fours final against Bev Morel’s team from

Elmwood Park. It was a closely contested

match in extremely hot and windy conditions

with the Redcliffs Mt Pleasant team winning

the Trophy. This is the first time our club has

won this coveted Canterbury title.

Jude Main was runner-up in the 1st and 2nd

Planting winter vegetables

The Redcliffs

Residents

Association has

launched an

“eco-village”

initiative in

response to

our climate and ecological

emergency. This month

member Dave Bryce is

focusing on sustainable food.

IF YOU were too late to get

a vegetable garden started in

spring, now is the time to get one

started for winter.

If you need any persuasion, try

these reasons:

1. You will get high quality,

fresh, in-season, nutrient rich

food that you will want to cook

yourself.

2. You will know where your

food comes from and what’s in it,

no additives or processing.

3. You will reduce your carbon

emissions, by eliminating “food

miles” transporting your food,

and by storing carbon in your soil

when you compost the left-overs.

4. You will improve your

health and well-being by regularly

engaging with nature, getting

out in the fresh air and sunshine,

and getting exercise.

The simplest way to make your

garden is to get one or more of the

old green rubbish bins (with the

holes for handles and a hole in the

bottom), fill with soil/compost/

potting mix and place in a sunny

spot where you can water it.

A more permanent way is to

dig over a few square meters of

your ground, in a sunny spot

which you can water.

If you don’t want to dig, you

can just cut and lay down the

grass or weeds, poke extensively

with a garden fork in to loosen

and aerate, and then lay down

overlapping sheets of newspaper

at least six sheets thick

(or cardboard), followed by a

layer of sheep or cow manure,

layer of straw, layer of grass or

kitchen scraps, layer of fine bark,

then compost and potting mix

(Google: Lasagne Garden).

At this time of year you can

sow carrots, beetroot, turnips,

parsnips, kohlrabi, radishes, spring

onions, swedes or root crops,

BENEFITS:

Maintaining a

vegetable garden

can be good for your

health and wellbeing

for a number

of reasons.

dwarf beans, peas, broad beans

or legumes and lettuces, mesclun,

rocket, silverbeet, florence fennel,

spinach, kale, cabbages, Chinese

cabbages, broccoli and cauliflowers

or leaf crops.

Decide which of these you

would like to eat, and buy packets

of seed – take into account

that some crops will take a few

months to mature, although you

could buy plants of some to get a

head-start.

It is good practice to have

a separate container/bed for

each of the groups like roots,

legumes and leaf, and rotate

them at the next planting time

so that the same soil isn’t used

for the same group two years in

a row.

This puts less pressure on soil

nutrients and organisms and

avoids disease build-up.

Tackling peninsula’s

community issues

• By Jess Gibson

A CROWD of about 50 gathered

in Akaroa on Thursday to review

the main issues affecting the

community.

It was the second hui hosted

by the Akaroa Resource Collective

Trust at Heartlands,

following several working parties

which were held to analyse

topics raised at the first meeting

in November.

Some of the things discussed

in depth at the second hui were

the Akaroa Health Centre, a

Destination Management Plan,

FrenchFest and Akaroa Area

School.

ARCT at Heartlands provides,

promotes and supports

charitable services that benefit

the Akaroa community and surrounding

areas.

Manager Kerry Little said

from the meeting, there came

a goal to seek wider community

representation, including

younger people.

She said there are still questions

around how that can be

achieved, but next step is to go

out into other areas such as Duvauchelle

to share information

with residents and see what is

happening in their communities.

PROGRESS: Some of the

main issues affecting Akaroa

were discussed by the

community following several

working parties.

“It’s not just all about Akaroa,’’

she said.

The event, held at The Gaiety

on Rue Jolie, was attended by

residents, community groups

and Banks Peninsula Community

Board members, among

others and presentations were

given by key stakeholders.

Said community board member

Nigel Harrison: “It was a

good way of trying to engage the

community. I think there’s been

a lot of good work done with

the information and there were

more issues collected that will be

collated.

“What’s really good is that it’s

going to validate what we are

putting in the three year plan,’’

he said.

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-

Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, a non-profit

organisation formed in 2002 to protect one of

New Zealand’s most important coastal wetlands.

Each week she introduces a new bird found

in the estuary. Her column aims to raise the

understanding of the values and uniqueness of

the area.

Vocal duck pairs for life

THE PARADISE duck, or

putangitangi, are a colourful and

very vocal endemic waterfowl

species – and they are only found

in New Zealand.

Numbers of these birds have

drastically increased since

European settlement as these

ducks adapted well to farmland

and open areas created by the

colonists and can now be found

throughout NZ.

The females are easily recognised

by their white heads but also by the

loud high-pitched shrieking noises

they make when constantly communicating

to the males.

Charming to know that most

Paradise ducks pair up for life;

feeding, nesting, flying together

and protecting their territory. It is

only during the moulting season

(when they lose all their feathers

and are temporarily unable to fly)

that they will team up with other

pairs as in larger groups they feel

safer from predators such as dogs

and cats.

Pairs build their nest in long

grass along our streams, rivers

and estuary and the female will

incubate the some nine eggs

while the male fiercely protects

his family from anyone or anything

coming near.

How can we help the Paradise

duck numbers to thrive? Keep dogs

on the lead at all times as dogs are

a huge threat to birds needing to

nest, rest and feed in peace.

ducks are known to pair

up for life – feeding,

nesting, flying and

GAINING KNOWLEDGE: Okains Bay School pupils learn taiaha

skills as part of this programme discussing Māori taonga and

technology.

OKAINS BAY School pupils have

started working on a project which

aims to heighten their creativity.

The school was one of 33

selected nationally to take part in

the Ministry of Education programme,

Creatives in Schools,

for the first two terms of 2020.

It aims to to improve their

well-being, skills in communication,

collaboration, creative

thinking, and raise their awareness

of creative careers.

Curator and project manager

Holly Cunningham is helping the

students connect with artists and

experts in their field to learn skills

like painting, photography, weaving,

and drawing, among others.

They will use the printing

presses at Okains Bay Museum

to produce images and text, and

will learn about Māori technology

and Te Reo sentence structures to

describe the museum’s taonga.

During this programme the

pupils will discover more about

their history and become advocates

for their museum.

Their creative efforts will result

in a museum brochure, created

by the pupils with the help of a

graphic designer as a tour guide

for visitors.

Said principal Colin Hammond:

“It is great the ākonga are

learning about local history and

taonga in our untapped local

museum, possibly the best museum

in the country for Māori

artefacts and our history.”

The community will be invited

to a celebration, also organised

by the pupils to mark the end of

the project in May.

All good things come to an end

YOU KNOW what they say

about good things and what they

inevitably do?

Well, this week brings big

changes in our house. One being

the end of my time as a stay-athome-dad

and returning to the

workforce.

The other, sadly, being the end

of this column.

It’s been amazing having an opportunity

to share thoughts and

stories like this. It’s also been a

real treat to have people recognise

us (mostly Vittoria) when we’re

out and about. If you’ve been one

of those people, thank you, you

made my day every time.

But over and above it all, the

last 16 months have been something

beyond description in

terms of the privilege of spending

so much time with my daughter.

I was nervous about how I’d

cope going into it, but over time

I’ve developed my parenting skills

so much that I’d be confident to

care for her on my own anywhere

and for, pretty much, any length

of time.

I’ve witnessed my little girl

grow from cute, mumbling bug

to a sassy little speed demon who

loves music, singing and a select

series of bedtime stories. I’ve had

a front row seat to help her grow

into her own little person.

VITTORIA

& Matt

THEN AND NOW: Vittoria at the beginning of the stay-at-home

dad experience, and 16 months later.

There’s definitely been hard

times. Any parent could tell you

that it can be easy to feel cut off

from the ‘adult world’. Being a

full-time, stay home, parent it can

be hard to escape that without

the ‘adult world’ involving only

other parents. Probably with kids

in tow.

Not that that can’t be a great

time, because it definitely can be,

but you definitely find yourself

appreciating any non-kid focussed

events more than before.

•Former Bay Harbour News

journalist Matt Salmons has

spent 16 months as a stay-athome

dad. We have followed

his journey weekly but he

is now heading back to the

workforce

Another difficulty I found was

a kind of guilty feeling from not

financially contributing substantially

to the household income.

I’m not talking about feeling

FAMILY: Laura, Vittoria and Matt.

pressure to be a provider of cash,

that had only lasted a couple

weeks. It’s more feeling guilty

about spending on yourself because

it’s ‘not your money’.

It took a lot of Laura reassuring

me that I didn’t need to feel guilty

before I got myself my first stayat-home-parent

takeaway coffee.

Still, I wouldn’t change anything

about the experience. It is one of

the best things I’ve ever done.

Now I’ll have to get used to

the working world all over again,

including having to be out of my

PJs before 6am.

I’ll also have to get used to the

idea of walking out of the house

most days and leaving my little

girl behind, which is hard to even

think about. So as exciting as

these changes are, it’s sad to leave

the life of the last year behind.

So, wish us luck and I thank

you, dear reader, for all the time

you’ve spent with us over this

time. It’s been an honour sharing

it with you.

“As an American down under for more than 37 years, I realise I have

become addicted to the Southern Latitudes and the continuously

changing landscape of New Zealand. The bounteous flora, fauna,

landscape and weather provide a rich smorgasbord of images, never

static.”

“My painting process usually begins with a single object. Following

several preparatory sketches. I then start the process of adding other

images, as well as fabricated bits and pieces. It is the unforgiving

aspect of watercolour painting and the flexibility of moving three

dimensional components around on the surface that excites me.

Using a combination of fabricated tromp l’oeil paper objects and

the underlying painted surface, I hope to create work that is both

completely familiar and yet new again. Like life itself, each work

resonates with both the story and history associated with some objects,

and the imagined potential of others.”

This exhibition is John’s fourth at Little River Gallery. His passions in

life clearly drive the content of his art. Fishing, observing birds and

weather, nostalgic collections, conservation, typography and word

play are skillfully rendered and arranged with the designer’s eye. It is

difficult to appreciate the three dimensionality of John’s work without

the work before you. We love the appreciative sounds coming from

the gallery as the observer realises the extra dimension and life like

qualities John manages to achieve with paper.

Dead to Her

by Sarah Pinborough

From the No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author

of Behind Her Eyes

There’s nothing like a woman scorned.

Something old…When Marcie met Jason Maddox,

she couldn’t believe her luck. Becoming Jason’s second

wife catapulted her into the elite world of high society. But

underneath the polite, old money manners, she knows she’ll

always be an outsider, and her hard-won life hangs by a thread.

Something new… Then Jason’s widowed boss brings back a new wife from

his trip to London. Young, beautiful, reckless – nobody can take their eyes off

Keisha. Including Jason.

Something you can never, ever undo…

Marcie refuses to be replaced so easily. People would kill for her life of luxury.

What will Marcie do to keep it?

She was slipping away. The further she fell, the closer the clouds seemed

to come. Wispy transparent slipstreams of white. Cirrus. Pain smashed her

head. Floating …

When investigative journalist Chrissie O’Brian lands a senior job at The

Argus, she is desperate to escape the nightmares of her past. Her life has

become a daily battle to numb the pain. But her job is something she can do

better than anyone else – and the only thing that keeps the memories at bay.

A face-off on the waterfront between the unions and big business is just the

kind of story to get her career back on track. But after a dockworker who

confided in her turns up dead, Chrissie becomes obsessed with unravelling

the truth. When a gruesome threat lands on her desk, it’s clear someone is

prepared to do anything to stop her.

But who is more dangerous – a ruthless enemy or a woman pushed to

the edge? Used to fighting her own demons, this is one battle Chrissie is

determined not to lose.

Tasty Bites

Feijoa season signals the end of summer

• By Ian Knott

It’s March already, and that

means the start of feijoa

season. Has there ever been

a more polarising fruit than

feijoas? Love them or hate

them, these green, oval

nuggets of floral tartness can

bring an extra dimension to

many sweet dishes

Feijoa and blueberry

shortcake crumble

Serves 12

Ingredients

2 cups peeled and chopped feijoas

1 punnet (125g) fresh blueberries

1 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp ground ginger

Crumble topping

¼ cup ground almonds

¼ cup flour

½ cup wholegrain oats

¼ cup soft brown sugar

50g butter, melted

Shortcake

100g butter, softened

½ cup sugar

1 egg

1 ½ cup flour

1 tsp baking powder

Directions

Preheat oven to 170 deg C

(fan assisted). Line the base and

sides of a 23cm square cake tin

with baking paper. Mix together

chopped feijoas, blueberries,

sugar and ground ginger and set

aside.

Prepare the crumble topping.

Put ground almonds, flour,

wholegrain oats and sugar into a

mixing bowl. Stir through melted

butter. Set aside.

Prepare the shortcake. Beat

together butter and sugar until

pale. Beat in the egg. Mix in flour

and baking powder to form a soft

dough. Press dough evenly into

the base of the prepared tin.

Spoon over the prepared fruit

to cover the base. Scatter over the

crumble mix.

Bake for 40-45min until top is

golden and base cooked. Leave

in the tin for 20min before

carefully lifting it out, with the

baking paper onto a cake rack to

cool. Serve cut into pieces with

yoghurt, ice-cream or cream.

Warm spiced feijoa

doughnuts

Makes about 14

Ingredients

1¼ cups plain, gluten-free flour

½ tsp baking powder (gf)

Pinch of salt

½ tsp each of ground cinnamon

and mixed spice

3 Tbsp caster sugar

1 egg

3 Tbsp milk

1 Tbsp melted butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

5 medium feijoas, peeled and

diced into 1cm pieces

Vegetable oil

Cinnamon sugar

½ cup caster sugar

¼ tsp ground cinnamon

Directions

Put 5cm of vegetable oil in a

deep, medium-sized saucepan

and heat to 170 deg C on a sugar

thermometer or until a piece of

bread dropped into the oil turns

golden within 30sec.

Combine the sugar and

cinnamon in a shallow dish and set

aside for rolling cooked doughnuts.

Combine all the dry ingredients

in a large bowl. Whisk the egg,

milk, butter and the vanilla together

then stir into the flour along with

the feijoas until well combined.

Carefully drop tablespoons of

the batter into the pan and cook

for about 2min until a golden

colour and puffed, turning

to cook on all sides. Don’t

overcrowd the pan as the oil

temperature will drop rapidly and

the doughnuts will be heavy.

Remove with a slotted spoon

and drain on paper towels. Roll in

the cinnamon sugar then place on

a wire cooling rack in a 100 deg C

oven until all the doughnuts are

cooked. Eat immediately.

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

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.

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.
