Researchers light up gorge

By Toni Williams

Drones monitoring the fire spread were among instruments measuring flame temperatures and

turbulence in the flame zone.

Fire crews from Mid Canterbury,

Canterbury, West Coast and Otago

have been working alongside teams

of international scientists doing

valuable fire burn research over the

past few days in the Rakaia Gorge.

Scion is leading the international

project to look at fire behaviour in

gorse scrub.

Around 80 hectares of gorse land

alongside Double Hill Run Road,

on the south side of the Rakaia

Gorge, has been used in controlled

burns to study simulated wildfire

behaviour.

Scion Rural Fire Research Group

fire scientist Grant Pearce said the

burn­off site was full of one to two

metre high mature gorse which had

been sectioned off into grids for the

controlled burns.

‘‘It’s part of an international

collaboration with researchers from

the US Forest Services, Missoula

Fire Sciences Laboratory, San Jose

State University and also from the

University of Canterbury geography

department.’’

Staff from the Department of

Conservation and Environment

Canterbury have also been involved

during various stages of the project,

which has taken ayear of planning.

The gorge gorse burns started

early last week and will continue

until Saturday.

It is the latest phase of alongterm

research project that has

included crop stubble fuels and will

see the next phase move into

investigation of standing wilding

pines fires.

Various firefighters and

researchers have been on site at the

Rakaia Gorge intermittently during

the days of the gorse burns, which

are planned every few days to allow

researchers time to reset their

equipment, including 30­metre

towers. Up to two burns are planned

on each burn day.

Mr Pearce said each of the

collaborators had supplied people

and equipment to contribute to a

number of the measurements being

made during the experiments.

He said the goal was to gather

information on how fire spreads

through different vegetation fuels to

develop and improve fire behaviour

modelsand predictiontoolsfor rural

fire managers.

The information would add to

existing knowledge from other

experimental burns in New Zealand

and was beneficial for firefighters.

The effects of rural wild fires can

be devastating, in cost and loss of

land.

Annually New Zealand has

around 3000 wildfires which burn

around 6000 hectares of land at a

cost of more than $100 million per

year.

“The best way to learn more about

fire behaviourand flamespread is to

study actual fires in conditions as

close to real life as possible.’’

The firefighters secured the

boundaries of the burn areas and

were also on hand tohelp mop up

once the fire had burned through.

‘‘Without that support from the

fire suppression crews we couldn't

conduct these experiments,’’ Mr

Pearce said.

Sunflowers bloom as niche crop

By Toni Williams

Turley Farms Chertsey is among

agrowing number of farms

turning to sunflowers as a

rotation crop to use between

plantings.

Sunflowers are good for high

oleic sunflower oil, which is high

in oleic (monounsaturated) acid

(at least 80 per cent), and good

as afrying oil. It also has agood

shelf life and is used in infant

formula.

The farm group, which has

properties scattered throughout

Canterbury, has planted more

than 40 hectares of sunflowers at

the Chertsey site. There are

62,000 sunflower plants per

hectare.

Turley Farms’ Roger Lasham

said around Mid Canterbury

there are around 250 hectares of

sunflowers growing for the

processor Pure Oil NZ.

‘‘These are our catch crop. It’s

always good to have aniche to

fill the gap.’’

Turley Farms used the same

model as last year, planting the

sunflowers on land vacated by

peas.

They were planted on

December 11 and are about 1.4m

tall. While they are slightly

smaller than last season, the

flowers are full of seed.

At harvest, just the heads are

Police Minister Stuart Nash

said 40 cannons had already

been installed inCanterbury,

with two in Ashburton.

Cannons emit a cloud of

vapour and a high­pitched

noise to deter offenders and

allow workers to escape.

He said fog cannons were

Mr Lasham said the biggest

was bird damage at the final

stages.

Fish dead in stream

Several hundred fish have been

found dead and dying in a

stockwater race at Mt Somers.

Environment Canterbury is

investigating and has taken water

samples from four points along

the race, which runs along

Ashburton Gorge Road. They

have been sent for testing.

The dead fish included smelt,

trout, native kokopu, koura,

freshwater bully and tuna (eel).

Ashburton Water Zone

manager Janine Holland said two

staff investigated the situation on

Monday.

‘‘At this stage, we cannot

speculate on the cause of the

contamination. But we

encourage people in the

community who may have seen

something that could have

contributed to the contamination

of the stockwater race to contact

Environment Canterbury.’’

She said the regional council

would report back to the

community when it had more

information.

Mt Somers resident Jeremy

Hunter said he called authorities

after discovering dead fish in the

race that ran through his

property on Sunday morning.

Neighbours also found dead fish

in their pond.

He said it looked as if the fish

had been poisoned and there

were more dead fish further

upstream and almost to the

intake near Stony Creek.

Passports show Jewish past

By Mick Jensen

Rakaia Gorge resident Butch Stern

had never laid his eyes on his

parents’ old passports until last

week.

The passports are one of his few

reminders of their lives and also a

stark reminder of their traumatic

flight from Nazi­occupied Austria

in 1939.

The passports feature the Nazi

swastika, alarge letter Jfor Juden,

or Jews, and refer to the Austrian

capital of Vienna (Wien) as being in

Germany. Friedrick and Hedwig

Lustig­Stern were among the lucky

ones to escape the Holocaust,

which took the lives of an estimated

six million Jews.

Mr Stern said apart from an aunt

who managed to flee to Hungary,

his entire family had been wiped

out by the Nazis. He had met the

aunt shortly before her death.

Mr Stern, who runs Mt Hutt

Lodge with his wife Jo and has lived

in New Zealand for 15 years, said

his parents had settled in the USA

in 1939, but the flight to freedom

took its toll on them.

‘‘My parents were lucky to get

out. My mother was an

accomplished seamstress and had a

job lined up in California. My father

was adentist in Austria, but did not

have good enough English to pass

the dental exams and ended up

working in afactory.’’

His father had died aged 49 in

1952, while his mother had been

seven years older when she died in

1965.

Mr Stern said news of the

Children’s Holocaust Memorial

exhibition at Ashburton Museum

had coincided with him getting his

hands on his parents’ old passports.

His late brother Bill, who was a

number of years older, had been the

custodian of the passports, but on

his passing, they had been sent to

him by his sister­in­law in the USA.

‘‘I received them last week and

it’s the first time I’d ever laid my

eyes on them.’’

He had only been two when his

father died, he said.

‘‘Mum died when Iwas 16 and

she continued to have nightmares

until her death. Iwas surrounded by

adopted Jewish aunts and asupport

network growing up. The talk was

not about the atrocities of the past,

but on the emergence of the state of

Israel.’’

The 71­year­old has framed his

few treasured photographs of his

parents, alongside an Immigration

Wall of Honour certificate issued to

them in the USA.

Mr Stern plans to bequeath the

two passports to the Holocaust

Centre of New Zealand in

Wellington, for their archives and

use as display material to help tell

the story of adark time in history.

Seminar to help troubleshoot your hearing aids

Hearing tutor Heather Talbott.

Hearing aids can bring some joy back

to the world of thosewithhearingloss.

Butgettingtogripswiththe computerised

gadgets is not always straight

forward.

The Ashburton Hearing Association

has organised afree seminar next

week (March 18) to talkabouthearing

aids.

The association has arranged for

specialist tutor, hearing therapist

Heather Talbott, to visit and talkabout

howtoget the bestout of yourhearing

aids.

Ashburton woman KathleenVessey

hasbeen usinghearingaids since 1986

to help with a loss of hearing and

tinnitus.

Without her aids she only hears the

faintest sounds.She says the bestthing

about using hearing aids was having

some hearing and the worst not being

able towear them when she has ear

issues.

She advises people to wear their

hearingaids as much as possible when

they get them. ‘‘New wearers sometimes

find sounds too loud and keep

taking them out. Your brain has to

adjust to the new noise sothe more

you can wear them, the better.’’

Mrs Vessey advises taking care

buying aids, trial them first and keep

going back to the audiologist untilthey

are right. ‘‘Themost expensive aids are

not always the best one for the wearer

and their particular hearing loss.’’

Hearing association spokesman

BernardEgan saidsome people struggled

with hearing aids in group

situations, and many using hearing

aids needed advice about how to get

used to them and look after them.

Aids did notrestore naturalhearing,

he said.

Keen interest in nitrate tests

Rakaia Huts veterinarian Peter

Trolove says 10 per cent of well

water samples tested in

Ashburton recently were above

the maximum allowable value

for nitrates.

Mr Trolove tested 75 well

water samples from 62

properties around the district as

part of monitoring conducted by

the New Zealand Federation of

Anglers.

He said people were queuing

to have their water samples read

by anitrate photometer.

Six of the wells were above

11.3mg/l nitrate­nitrogen, the

maximum allowable value set by

the World Health Organisation.

These wells were at Hinds,

Winslow, Willowby, Tinwald and

Fairton.

About half (37) were over

Environment Canterbury’s

aspirational limit of 5.3mg, Mr

Trolove said.

All those who brought water

for testing appreciated the

chance to test it and some left

concerned, he said.

Mr Trolove has also been

testing nitrate levels in central

Canterbury streams, including

Water testing under way at the Ashburton Racecourse.

the Hinds, since August. Hinds

River at Poplar Road was

5.84mg in August, 7.94mg and

7.15mg in September and

5.93mg in October. Anglers say

fisheries cannot thrive if nitrate

levels are above 3.5mg.

Mr Trolove says increasing

dairy cow numbers, an increase

in synthetic fertiliser use and

irrigation, all on vulnerable soils,

were contributing to high nitrate

levels.

He said proposed new

national freshwater standards

held the key to solving the

country’s water pollution.

Consultation on the new

standards was controversial

though, with farmers saying the

proposed targets were not

achievable and would spell

economic diaster for agriculture,

and the country.

Mr Trolove said Environment

Minister David Parker and

Agriculture Minister Damien

O’Connor must signal their

intent before the September

elections.

‘‘We will soon learn if they can

hold their nerve and not kick the

can down the road for future

generations.’’

Mr Trolove, president of the

anglers’ federation, said he had

long­standing links to

Ashburton, where his parents

still lived on Racecourse Road.

He worked as avet in

Ashburton in the 1980s and now

spends time researching and

trying to raise awareness of

Canterbury’s water quality and

quantity issues.

Professor Webster­Brownlives

in rural Canterbury and treats

her drinkingwaterwith a

distillation system that removes

nitrates as well as other

chemicals and bacteria. Her well

water fluctuates between9­11mg/

Distillation systems are

Recipes for one or two Power savings

Arecipe book aimed at seniors cooking

for one or two people is now available

through Senior Chef.

The book, Easy Recipes for One or

Two, has been released by Pegasus

Health and is based on the recipes

offered through their Senior Chef

programme, afree eight­week cooking

course for people aged 60 years and

older.

Senior Chef is open to any senior

who is looking to improve the cooking

skills they have or wanting to gain

motivation in the kitchen.

Senior Chef’s Angela Leadley says

the programme, funded through Pegasus

Health, had proved valuable for

people who had lost a partner and

found themselves needing to do more

cooking than in the past, for people

who were not confident in the kitchen

and for those in need of socialising and

learning new skills.

It runs between 10am and 1pm and

covers healthy eating with age­savvy

foods which include high fibre breakfasts,

calcium for bones and plenty of

vegetables. It also includes budgeting,

menu planning and cooking for one or

two people.

“It’s a really cool course,” Mrs

Leadley said.

Senior Chef's Angela Leadley and the Senior Chef recipe book.

The cooking class, with up to adozen

people, is a sharing experience. It

involves cooking together, then eating

and doing the clean­up, which were all

part of the process, she said.

It is run twice ayear with the next

course in July.

The recipe book, which costs $20, is

given to graduates of the Senior Chef

EA Networks customers

will see a

decrease in their

power bills from

April with the average

residential customer

paying about

$110 less over ayear.

The company says

network prices will

reduce on average 14

per cent as aresult of

a decrease in the

return that the Commerce

Commission

allows network companies to

earn, as well as areduction in

costs from Transpower, the

national grid operator.

EA Networks chief executive

Roger Sutton said the Ashburton

community will benefit from

the lower network charges from

April 1.

‘‘Simply put, there will be

more money in the back pockets

of customers across the district

and that is agood thing.’’

For the average residential

customer, the price drop equates

to asaving of about $110 over 12

months. Mid Canterbury has a

CEO Roger Sutton

high number of

irrigation connections

and those

customers should

see reductions of

about $2200 for

every 100kW of

installed capacity.

These reductions

relate to

network prices

charged to electricity

retailers in

the region. Actual

reductions seen

by customers in their monthly

electricity bill are determined by

their retailer.

‘‘All customers should benefit

from the network price drop and

we would be extremely disappointed

if electricity retailers

were not passing these through

to mums and dads in our

region,’’ Mr Sutton said.

The company recommended

customers check their electricity

accounts carefully from

April to ensure the benefit of

these reductions is being

reflected by their electricity

retailers.

Full licence for Shonal

Fijian­born Shonal Chand

has gone from learner driver

to full driving licence holder

and is the first participant on

the district’s Rural Driver

Licensing Scheme to do so.

Mrs Chand passed her full

test on Monday and at the

first attempt.

She signed up to the

licensing support scheme in

April 2018 and completed

nine classes of driving theory.

The theory test was passed

in July 2018 and ayear later

Mrs Chand achieved her

restricted licence.

She said there had been

nerves before Monday’s full

test in Ashburton, but she

had stayed calm and driven

well.

‘‘I was really, really happy

to pass.

‘‘It now means Ihave

complete freedom to go

where Ilike and drive who I

like.’’

Mrs Chand lives and works

on adairy farm at Rakaia and

has two school age children.

She was very grateful for

the rural driving support

scheme and in particular her

driver mentor Mandy

Burrows, who was her boss’s

wife, and had been a

reassuring presence from day

one.

The licensing scheme has

been running for two years

Shonal Chand (right) passed her full test on Monday.

She is pictured with Rural Driver Licensing Scheme coordinator

Wendy Hewitt.

and is aimed at rural adult

newcomers who need to get a

learner’s licence, or convert

their international licence.

The fifth group of learners

on the programme starts on

March 17 and there are still a

couple of places left, says

Rural Driver Licensing

Scheme co­ordinator Wendy

Hewitt.

The focus of the

programme was to reduce

isolation for newcomers and

migrants, to build social

networks and to give people

independence by gaining

their driver’s licence.

‘‘We have had some great

successes and Shonal is a

good example. We have more

ladies sitting their licence

tests this month,’’ said Mrs

Hewitt.

Pink caravan in town

Mid Cantabrians are encouraged

to hop on board the

Breast Cancer Foundation

NZ’s Pink Caravan this

month to learn about breast

cancer and talk about breast

health.

The caravan, called Pinkie,

will be parked at Baring

Square East, in Ashburton

on Tuesday, March 31, from

10am to 3pm.

Breast cancer is the most

common cancer for New

Zealand women with nine

women a day diagnosed,

although men can get breast

cancer too; around 25 are

diagnosed each year.

Breast care nurses Alison

Smith and Sue Bull will be on

site to welcome visitors and

talk about breast health.

There is also alife­like torso,

called Bessie, who has visible

signs of breast cancer, and

also lumps that can only be

found by using correct selfchecking

technique, which

the nurses can teach.

‘‘We have lots of information

that people can take

away with them and hand out

to whanau and friends, too,’’

Alison says.

‘‘Women are often surprised

to learn what alump

actually feels like. As in real

life, it can be abit tricky to

find. Come along and see for

yourself!"

Pinkie and its breast care

nurses are travelling the

South Island with the aim of

reaching Kiwis in their communities;

engaging with them

about breast health, general

health and lifestyle factors;

and giving information on

signs to watch for, family risk

and the importance of

mammograms.

Doctor is new Rakaia

Medical Centre owner

The Rakaia Medical Centre has been sold to one of

the doctors who works there and the community

trust that previously ran it will be wound up.

Dr Sue Fowlie and her husband Colin Steven

have bought the business, which has over 2500

patients and will double its footprint when its

premises are expanded in the next year.

Dr Fowlie, clinical director and practising GP at

the centre, has worked there since 2016. She is also

known outside the centre as the doctor who travels

to rural events in aspecial orange caravan to do free

rural health checks for farmers.

Trust chairperson Nicki Webster said the centre

was moving into wonderful hands. ‘‘It is the best

outcome for the bright future of the centre.’’

The medical centre celebrates 20 years in June

and has two permanent GPs and aregular locum, a

newly­graduated nurse practitioner, three nurses

and an administration team behind the clinical

team.

Dr Fowlie said she was grateful to be part of a

team that worked toward giving the best care to

patients.

The centre would expand to include an onsite

pharmacy and more health professionals.

‘‘We want to be able to provide the best care for

our ever­growing community into the future,’’ Dr

Fowlie said. ‘‘Providing services that allow patients

to access them without having to travel far matters,

people’s health and wellness matters.’’

Trustees and the medical centre’s team are

delighted about the change and everyone is looking

forward to having Dr Fowlie at the helm.

The governing trust will be wound up and money

Interest shown at domain open day

Over180 people camealongtoan

proposed long­term development

plans for Ashburton Domain.

The publicchecked outdisplays

There was good interest in the

Support for bowling club

There was plenty of public support

offered to the Ashburton Bowling Club

at an open day on Saturday, as it bids to

secure its long­term future at its current

site in the Ashburton Domain.

The club leases land from Ashburton

District Council and that lease is up for

renewal in 2028.

Ashburton Bowling Club president Jo

Ryk said dozens of people through the

door on Saturday backed the call for the

club to stay where it is.

He said all the local bowling clubs and

the wider bowls fraternity were of the

same opinion.

Having 96 bowlers out on the greens

for Friday triples in the season, and with

the domain as a backdrop, was an

impressive sight that bowlers did not

want to see disappear.

The bowling club was well­used and a

real community asset, he said.

‘‘We’ve got alot of history here and

we want to create more history by

staying put for the long term.’’

Mr Ryk said he was optimistic the club

would not be moved on.

There was no budget for any relocation

at this stage and, for the club, it

could be acase of ‘‘stay put, or fold’’, he

said.

Newcomers to the game of bowls

enjoyed the opportunity for aroll up at

the open day, with help and advice given

by club members.

Ashburton Bowling Club has around

90 members and the club is 125 years

old.

It also showcased

two pioneering projects

made byAllenton

groups; respectively a

two to three metre high

platform mudslide

spanning around

10­metres long and the

dunking chair.

‘‘It’s an open community

event for everyone

tohave agoand

have some fun,’’ she

said.

There was a mix of

mud and water activities

for people totake

part in, asausage sizzle

to warm the insides

and lots of squeals of

laughter.

It was the second

time the scouts had

Ashburton Forest &Bird member Edith Smith was among the five nest

counters in the Ashburton River last week.

Gull nests counted,

birds on themove

It’sthe endofthe nestingseason andrare

black­billed gull numbers in the Ashburton

River near the Tinwald Bridge are

thinning out.

Last week members of Ashburton

Forest &Bird counted around 1200 nests

in three main nesting sites and estimate

that around 900 chicks were born this

season.

Forest & Bird member Edith Smith

said itwas likely half the nests had been

home tosingle chicks.

An estimated 500 birds remained on

the site during the count, but they were

expected to be gone in the next two weeks.

Nest counters also found 30 dead

chicks, and afew birds that were injured,

said Mrs Smith.

She said inmid­November bird numbers

at the nestingsiteswerearound 4000.

December’s flood in the Ashburton

River had seen it visibly rise toreach 240

cumecs, but despite that, the birds had

recovered well and had returned to

nesting.

Mrs Smith said floods impacted the

birds, but so did human activity inthe

riverbed and also predators.

Data collected by Ashburton Forest &

Bird over the season will be passed onto

river protection advocacy group BRaid

and Environment Canterbury.

was a slow start to the

growing season because

of cooler temperatures.

But the blooms that

filled the Tinwald Hall on

Sunday were spectacular

and there were plenty of

admirers.

Mrs Read won the

Help for families of inmates

Local news at www.starnews.co.nz

Rules for

drones

By Linda Clarke

When Bronnie McKenna’s 20­yearold

son went to jail, all the oxygen

was sucked out of her world.

The Ashburton woman said no

parent planned or prepared for that

moment. She did not know where to

turn for advice.

It would be eight days before she

could speak to her son by phone

and eight weeks before she saw him

in person.

Bronnie says they were dark

times for her family and there was

little information available in Mid

Canterbury. She now wants to help

other families who have aparent,

child or sibling in jail.

With $8000 funding from the

Advance Ashburton Charitable

Foundation, Bronnie has set up

PALS, aMid Canterbury support

group for families with inmates.

She says up to 50 families in the

district are dealing with afamily

member behind bars and could

benefit from the group.

It has the backing of the national

organisation Pillars, set up by

Oamaru woman Verna McFelin

whose husband was jailed in 1984

for his part in the abduction for

ransom of ateenage girl.

Verna said the organisation she

established was based on the

experience gained raising four

children whose father was in jail.

‘‘It was hard, we knew nothing

about prison.’’

Ashburton woman Bronnie McKenna (left) and Verna McFelin are

helping families who have aparent, children or siblings in jail.

There are around 23,000 children

of inmates in New Zealand, she was

to learn, and they are 10 times more

likely to end up in prison

themselves.

Verna was in Ashburton last

week to support Bronnie as she

launched the Mid Canterbury

support group, which will meet

every two weeks in the Base youth

centre, on Burnett Street.

It will be aplace to chat, share

experiences and advice.

Bronnie says it is just over 1000

days since her son was arrested and

charged with murder; he admitted

stabbing another young man and

was sentenced to life in prison.

‘‘A much­loved son, brother and

grandson was put in prison and not

until December 13, 2029 is he

eligible for parole. We became a

minority, we were the family of a

lifer.’’

Bronnie, who works in restorative

justice, said finding help and advice

had been hard, even with the

support of her parents and husband.

‘‘It was an isolating, unforgiving

and frustrating experience.’’

In a‘‘sink or swim’’ moment, she

decided she wanted to make life

better for other families who might

find themselves in the same spot.

The oxygen came back.

She started aFacebook page ­

Supporting and Educating Families

of Prisoners NZ ­for families

nationwide and approached Pillars

about the possibility of starting a

support group in Ashburton to

reach other families on their own

journeys in the corrections system.

Pillars helps families with

members in jail, or on home or

community detention.

Verna said families carried alot

of shame when aloved one went to

jail and children wore scars that

could last alifetime. Pillars has

toolkits for families, lawyers and

teachers ­with good advice and

information for helping improve

outcomes for children caught up in

acustodial sentence.

There is also amentoring

programme for children and

resources that are available for

inmates.

The first meeting of the Mid

Canterbury support group in

Ashburton will be on Monday,

March 16. Bronnie said it would be

aforum that was respectful of

victims, the corrections system and

inmates.

‘‘It is not for slagging off the

system, it is there to support, guide

and back each other. It is to help

each other find answers.’’

Bronnie is also available to talk to

groups like social workers and

teachers who are dealing with

vulnerable children.

Drone operators in Ashburton

taking photos for real estate agents

are among those affected by strict

flying exclusion zones around the

Ashburton Airport.

The exclusionzone is a4km radius

around the Ashburton District

Council­owned airport on Seafield

Road.

Civil Aviation Authority and

council rules apply and drones must

stay 4km away from the airport

unless the operator has the required

authorisation and clearance.

Amap of the exclusion zone was

tabled for councillors on the

Ashburton Airport Authority

subcommittee recently. The zone

includes most of the Ashburton

Domain and the town.

Council’s commercial manager

Colin Windleborn said the zone was

on the AirShare websiteand drone

operators should be aware of it.

It would be even greater when a

4km radius was also put around the

helicopter landing pad at the

Ashburton Domain, he said.

Cr and real estate agent Rodger

Letham said he had no objection to

the exclusion zone though it

restricted some aerialphotography

of properties. It was better to be safe

though, he added.

People seeking to fly within the

airport's 4km radius must contact

council for permission. Drone users

should check council's Open Spaces

Bylaw for rules. Drones are

prohibited over cemeteries, camping

grounds, sports fields in use.

*See belowfor T&Cs

Honeycomb blinds

Blinds are becoming an increasingly popular option for window furnishings nowadays.

There are many different options from roller, roman and venetian to newer ones like

sunscreen and honeycomb blinds. Whereas in past years curtains were the best option

for keeping in the warmth in ahouse there are some great advancements in blinds which

now makes them agreat option.

Honeycomb blinds are like what they sound like, blinds that are shaped in ahoneycomb

structure. This allows the air to get trapped between the cells of the fabric and creates an

insulating layer. This makes them afantastic option if you are after something to keep the

warmth in. In fact, Consumer NZ recently did atest onthe insulating abilities of curtains

and blinds and honeycomb blinds were the winner by acountry mile!

Honeycombs are also agood insulator due to the minimal gap around the blind after

installation. As there are

no brackets outside the

width of the blind, they fit

tight to the edge of the

window. For this reason,

they are also agood option

if you require ablind on a

window that needs to have

minimal gap for blackout

reasons.

There are anumber

of control options for

honeycomb blinds,

including traditional

cords, handle operated

or even motorised! Both

the handle operated and

motorised are agood

option for kids ‘rooms due

to having no cords. These

blinds come in amultitude

of colours as well as both

translucent/sunscreen and

blockout options. Agreat

addition to any home!

Textured wool carpets

Wool carpets have beenmaking a

comeback in the flooring world recently.

Although most of the carpet sold

nowadays is solution dyednylon, there

arestill manypeople who wouldrather

haveawool carpet underfoot. There are

manygood reasons forthis, firstlyitisa

natural fibreand renewableresource. Itis

naturally fireretardantand naturally soil

and stain resistant. It alsohelpsmanage

humidity in thehome by absorbing

moisture. Themainpointtoremember

with woolcarpets is thatagood wool

carpet is still agood wool carpet. However,thisisdefinitelyaproductwhereyou getwhat

youpay for.

Textured carpets arewherewools arereallycoming into their ownintoday’smarket.

Currently thereareanumber of beautiful softtextured and loop piles on the market.

These go from thefiner, moretraditionalsisal looking carpets to the luxurious chunky

loops thatfeelgorgeousunderfoot. Theseare available in anumber of differentlooks

and coloursnow fromcreamsthrough to darkbrowns and greysaswell as in twotone

variations.

Formanypeople tracking in carpet is something thatreallyputs them off acut pile nylon

carpet. (Trackingiswhen the pile flattens in ahigh traffic area.) Loop pilewoolcarpets

arenot as pronetothis and is just another reason people choose wool.

One final thing to remember with woolcarpet vs nylon is thatthe weights arenot

necessarily comparable. Whereas astandardweightnylon carpet is around 32-34oz,

an equivalentwool carpet wouldbearound 40oz. (Carpet is still measured in termsof

ounces per square yard!)

Show president Adam Glass

The Methven A&P Show is offering

a day full of fun, family

entertainment and top farming

action at its bumper show on

Saturday, March 21.

It’s theme, loosely based on

‘Eaten today? Thank a farmer’,

underlines the work done by farmers

to get farm produce from the

farm paddock or field and on to the

plates of everyday Kiwis.

Methven A&P show president

Adam Glass, a beef and dairy

farmer, said often people forgot

where their food came and the

work undertaken to produce it,

whether it was meat or plant­based,

and the show was agood chance to

remind them.

The show features the FMG

Young Farmer of the Year competitions

running in three areas

around the grounds throughout the

day.

These competitions will give the

wider community the chance to see

some of the work farmers do in

action, as competitors in the

Aorangi 2020 regional final of

FMG Young Farmer of the Year,

Junior Young Farmer of the Year

and AgriKids competitions complete

practical, common on­farm

tasks, under pressure.

The practical aspect of the competitions

start on the grounds from

8am and continue in stages

throughout the day.

While the AgriKids and Junior

Young Farmer of the Year awards

ceremony will be on the grounds at

2.45pm, the Young Farmer of the

Year regional final continues at an

evening event at the Mt Hutt

Memorial Hall, in Methven.

Aorangi Young Farmer finalists

Adam Judd, Campbell Somerville,

George Smith, George Webster,

Scott Middleton, Jesse Wilde,

James Hurst and Hamish Holland

are vying for achance to represent

the region in the national grand

final in Christchurch in July.

Mr Glass said the ethos of the

young farmer competition was abig

part of any A&P show’s core

business.

“It’s really good.”

Around the grounds the show

layout has changed from past years

to include each of the three age

group competitions.

Most notably for the public, the

car park has moved from the south

side of the grounds to the north

side.

But inside there are still the same

exciting opportunities to thrill

young and old alike.

Activities include shearing,

sheep dog trials, wood chopping,

equestrian, and the Methven Vintage

Club has static machinery and

moving displays.

Around 100 trade sites with

machinery in all shapes and sizes,

art and craft stalls and tents, wine

and food stalls will be showcasing

and selling their wares.

And competitions will be fiercely

contested in equestrian events

(from at 8am), sheep dog trials

(from 8.30am), and judging gets

under way with sheep and wool

(9.30am), children’s pets, dancing,

dairy goats, poultry, farm produce,

and home industries (from 10am)

and sheep – champion of champions

(12pm). The shearing and

wood chopping competitions get

under way from 10.30am.

In the home industries pavilion

there will be baking, knitting,

photography, art, vegetables and

floral delights, while members of

the Methven A&P committee have

entered the three Cheese Scones

section in their annual committee

challenge.

The annual gift lamb auction,

with lambs donated by local farmers,

gets under way at 1.30pm,

Celtic band Boru will play in the

wine and food area (from 11.30am)

and there will be free face painting

and balloon twisting between 10am

and 2pm in the sideshow area.

Always guaranteed to delight is

the popular sheep colouring competition

(1.30pm), where kids get in

asheep pen to colour in asheep, or

a visit to the animal shed where

children can get up close to a

variety of animals.

There are also sideshow amusements

and in the main ring official

speeches will begin at 1.50pm with

the Grand Parade (2pm) featuring

the AshburtonPipe Band followed

by alolly scramble. The Dog Trial

Run­Off final (3pm), will be held

at the bottom end of the main ring

and will be followed by atug of war

competition (at 4pm).

Collie club helps dog handling skills

By Toni Williams

Ray Kane has had an association

with the Mayfield Collie Club for

more than 50 years.

Being amember of the club, which

celebrates its 100th anniversary this

month, has given Ray opportunity to

learn skills of the craft from some of

the best of their time.

He remembers people like Hughie

and Ted Weir, Cyril Johnson and

Methven Collie Club’s Hughie King

and Colin McKay.

When Ray first joined the Mayfield

Collie Club, he was a16­yearold

school leaver working with dogs ­

and sheep ­ doing high country

mustering around the district.

He worked at Ben McLeod Station,

up the Rangitata and Ashburton

gorges and later did aspell in the

North Island.

He joined the club to gain more

dog handling experience.

‘‘I was working with dogs and

wanted to get better at it.’’

He ‘‘just rocked up’’ with ayoung

heading bitch in tow looking to learn

from club members, although some

of the older club members ‘‘weren’t

as forthcoming’’ back then.

While now the club runs clinics

and training days to help people with

their stockmanship, back then there

were afew members who didn’t want

to pass on their secrets ­least of all to

ayoung fella.

Ray’s parents, Jack and Jean,

owned asheep and beef property at

Prices Road, in Mt Somers.

They bought it when Ray was 12,

and at its peak ran 5200 breeding

ewes and 1300 hoggets.

As achild Ray always had adog

around on the farm; the most

memorable was Scruff, a mixed

breed handy dog which Ray got as a

puppy from afarmer down the road.

Scruff was adog that got better

with age and was always learning.

‘‘Right through his life he developed

as he got older ... as Iexpected

more, he gave more.’’

When Ray eventually went

mustering he had agood sized team

of five dogs; three huntaways, a

heading dog and ahandy dog.

He believes there have been vast

improvements in the huntaway breed

since his younger days.

Then it was rare to see adog at

trial face up on to sheep. It was

special.

‘‘(Now) the young ones are getting

out there head­on, and skilled, which

Mayfield Collie Club member Ray Kane with his trusty canines (from

left) Rusty, Glen and Gus.

is largely bred into them, but they

have improved.’’

‘‘It’s a sport where age means

nothing when you get out there and

start running the dogs.

‘‘You can win one day and blow

out the next. There is no guarantee

for success.

‘‘There are three sheep, you, and

the dog and everything has to go

right.’’

Ray, 68, has since taken over the

property but has diversified into

deer. It’s an option he ran with in

1989.

‘‘I wanted to keep running it as a

sheep and beef farm, but it wasn’t

viable,’’ he said.

‘‘It got to the point we needed to

sort something out and make

money.’’

The decision had to be made, the

value on sheep was low and farmers

were getting one good year in five;

of those five, three years would be

average and one disastrous.

He now has 1200 velveting stags,

500 hinds and 600 weaner deer.

Ray still keeps 80sheep onthe

property but just to keep down the

ragwort weed.

And he still has dogs; Rusty, Glen

and Gus help to keep those sheep in

line, but Ray doesn’t use them for

trialling, they’re not up to scratch.

He will not be competing in the

club’s centennial trial at the Hakatere

grounds on Potts Road this

month but he will be on hand to

help.

Of the four courses; zig zag hunt,

straight hunt, the uphill long pull

and short pull yard, Ray will be

looking after the straight hunt.

He expects there will be 40 to 50

competitors onsite doing around 60

to 70 heading runs and hunts each.

Although given it’s a centennial

run, there may be more.

DeputyPrincipal Message

Working Together to Grow Fine

Young Adults

As Iput thoughts down on paper for the first

time in 2020, Iamaware that the honeymoon

period for AshColl 2020 isover for afew of our

students. We, here, are inthe quest of growing

fine young adults and accept that the rate of

development isdifferent for all. Inthe last few

days we have had some incidents of concern

aroundbehaviour and attitude. Letmebereally

clear herethough,Iamtalking minority!

What Do YouBelieve?

Iguess one of the conundrumsthatfaces some young people is knowing

who to believeand who to ignore–and thatwould go foradults at times

too. Thereallyimportantmessagethatweare working hardtopromote

at AshColl (and this goes back to the misty days when Iwas aboy too)

is to make sure that what your friend told you, was really true. Chinese

whispersisadangerous gamethatwreaks havocifunchecked.

All too often our Pastoral Deans and Counsellors work hard tosupport

our staffand students as theymanage challenging situations thatevolve

as aresult of‘he said –she said’ syndrome. I have dealt with acouple

of incidents that got out of control because of this, and this isoften

aggravated byso- called ‘friends’ delivering messages toboth parties

thatonly fuel the unrest.

Triple Filter Test

Socrates, the greatGreek philosopher,had atest that hasstood the test

of time, and we encourage our young people to follow his ‘Triple Filter

Test’, beforeacting on whataperson tells you.

It’s simple andeasilyapplied:

Test 1 ‘Is it true?’ If the answer is yes, then-

Test 2 ‘Is it good?’ Another yes, and -

Test 3 ‘Is it useful?’.

If the answer to any ofthe tests is not adefinite yes, then rethink your

next action.Getting it wrong could be adisaster.

This aligns well with the AshColl WayValues of Pride,Qualityand Respect

whichwecontinuallypromote.

ExpectedBehaviours Campaign

We are just in the process of launching our ‘Expected Behaviours’

campaign. This is made upoftwo elements, the first one being ‘All

Settings’.This outlines some of the behaviours that are expected tobe

observed in all areas of astudent’s life.

It would greatly help if youwereable to supportour work by reinforcing

thesebasic values in your homeaswell.

Remember! When in doubt about what you hear, apply the Socrates

‘Triple Test Filter’.

South Island SecondarySchools’

Tennis Championships

The ‘best of the best’ hit the courts in Timaru for the annual South Island

Secondary Schools’ Tennis Championships over the last weekend of

February. Coach/Manager Michael Clark said that College entered a boys’

and agirls’ team, both of whom came up against some stiff opposition.

In their first match ofthe tournament, the boys' team went down against

Christ’s College before succumbing to St Bede’s College later that day.

However, they followed that loss up with avictory against Timaru Boys’

High School on the Sundayand then anarrowloss against John McGlashan

College,with the result decided on acountback of games.

The girls’team fared similarly with St Margaret’s College and Rangi Ruru

Girls’ High School proving dominant. The matches, however, were more

evenly matched against St Hilda’s College but their Dunedin opponents

proved tobetoo strong in the end. Ashburton had more success in their

match against Columba College but, with both Ashburton College teams

sporting young players, the experience ofsuch high calibre opposition,

including playing New Zealand representatives, will serve them well in

tournaments to come.

Team members (pictured left, back row lefttoright): Angel Spooner,

Matthew Hopkins,Ollie Bubb,Holly-Jane Feutze, Tyler Leonard, RubyGray.

Expo keeps seniors connected

Services, activities and agencies available for

ageing people in the district were on show at

the Positive Ageing Expo at the Hotel

Ashburton last week.

The event, organised by Age Concern

Ashburton, saw nearly 80 stalls take part

offering anything from gardening and bridge

clubs, to welfare organisations, religious

groups, gyms, musical societies, travel companies,

health services and aged care

facilities. There were also live kitchen fire

displays from Fire and Emergency New

Zealand and the AshVegas Alive hip­hop

dance crew performed.

Age Concern Ashburton president Trish

Small was delighted with the turnout of

people and the number of stallholders keen

to show people ways to lead full and active

lives.

“There’s been aconstant flow of people,”

she said, during the event.

Among the stallholders were Karen

Young and Almond Royds, of the Tinwald

Gardening Club. The club has around 45

members who meet regularly to appreciate

gardens and the art of floral decoration. The

women had some impressive bouquets and

floral arrangements on their stall which

shimmered in the light.

The secret to the shimmer was hairspray,

which when sprayed on afinished arrangement

gives asilvery shine to the petals and

leaves.

Ashburton Bridge Club members Mary

Buckland, Johnny Wright, Trish Downward

and Rona Brownlie played agame of bridge

to showcase their club. The quartet was

seated around asquare table playing agame

or two of bridge and answering questions

from curious passers­by.

The bridge club has astrong membership

of around 140 people and had just started its

beginner training classes for people wanting

to get into the game.

But they were also keen to hear from

people who may have been away from the

game and were keen for some refresher

training.

Also on site were Fire and Emergency

New Zealand fire risk management officers

Bevan Findlay and Craig Chambers who

highlighted some of the most common

causes of fire around the home, such as

overloaded multi­boards, overheating computers,

clogged chimneys and clothes being

dried too close to heat sources.

The biennial expo was a way to keep

people connected and make sure they stay

healthy and active in their golden years.

U3A Ashburton

U3A’s February speaker was Emeritus Professor

Dave Craw from Otago University. Dave is well

known for his research into gold and environmental

issues surrounding gold mining and he is the

author of many papers onthis subject.

Recipient of the University’s Distinguished

Research Medal, Dave’s fascinating and lively

presentation –particularly addressing Biogeochemical

Pathways, i.e. the role that bacteria play in

gold crystallization and nugget growth ­left many

members wanting to hear more onthe subject.

He aptly explained why Otago and Southland

provinces have prolific gold measures in comparison

to Mid Canterbury, however he did lay to rest

any doubt about the conjecture that gold can be

found in the Rakaia River. Indeed it can!

MAKING ADIFFERENCE TO

The bold caption above is the mission statement of the newest gym in town, E3 Training,

estabilished and locally owned by Cilla Anderson, who has been in the fitness industry for

over four years. From launching outdoor 8week boot camps in September 2019, E3

Training grew significantly and now have their very own HQ.

Cilla has battled with her weight her whole life but was still very competitive in team sports

and had her fair share of injuries including three ACL reconstructions tothe left knee. Not

only did she battle injuries but also an eating disorder (bulimia) from the age of 16, and

although she is free from this disease, she still fights the mental battles associated with it.

“I want to break discrimination in the fitness industry and prove fitness and strength is

more than being skinny and low %body fat. Fitness comes in all shapes and sizes and at

no point should people feel too intimidated to walk into agym because they feel they need

to be something they’re not. That’s what makes usdifferent. As trainers we’re all very

different in sizes, strengths and weaknesses with abackground we had to work for to be

where weare today.”she said.

Working part time at Canterbury Chiropractor as areceptionist keeps Cilla on her toes,

“it has given me the opportunity tolearn much more about the body and especially with

injuries and rehabilitation exercise”, she said, “Our classes are fully coached where we can

adjust exercises to suit injuries or physical ability to ensure everyone is included and can

still attend our classes no matter their limitations. Our clients know we will give them the

motivation to push past their boundaries if they want it, and those that just want to come

join in to move their body, or be apart of asocial environment, are just as welcome.”

“We just want to help people move

their body and learn about fitness

and the correct movements to help

prevent injuries and build a good

solid base of stability, strength and

cardiovascular fitness to ensure a

healthy and positive future.”

Ashburton mayor Neil Brown

An honour investinginour district'sfuture

Sitting around the

council table is an

immense privilege and

one that brings agreat

deal of responsibility –

not only for our

district as it is now but

also for generations to

come.

The Ashburton

District is very

fortunate to have a

number of crucial

projects under way

that will help set us up

for the future and I'm

honoured to be apart of the

decision­making team that helps

brings those projects to life.

Mayor Neil Brown

Idon't need to

explain how

important road safety

is to our community,

and our Speed Limit

Review ­which closed

for consultation last

Sunday has been an

opportunity to make

positive outcomes for

our people.

More than 150

people and

organisations have

had their say on

proposed changes to

our road speeds, which is really

pleasing to see. The council is now

processing these submissions and will

hold ahearing on April 2for those

who want to speak to their

submission, before afinal decision

on our speeds is made on May 21.

The future of the commercial

heart of our district is also

developing before our eyes, with

Cass Street undergoing the first leg

of upgrades as part of the CBD

Streetscape Revitalisation project.

Until now, progress has largely

remained underground with new

drinking water, storm and sewer

pipes, but this week will see the first

of the above ground upgrades getting

under way.

Across the way in Baring Square

East, the new Ashburton Library and

Civic Centre is also offering exciting

and much­needed upgrades for our

district.

Amodern library with room for

performance areas, achildren's

discovery centre and recording

studio, as well as Importance Level 4

construction standards to house our

local Civil Defence Emergency

Operations Centre, and

environmentally sustainable design

features are all included in the new

build.

Draft development plans for the

Ashburton Domain are now also out

for consultation, and it was great to

see lots of people popping over to

speak to staff and councillors at the

open day in the domain on the

weekend.

This 30­year plan really is all about

the future and ensuring we're making

enhancements that will support our

community down the track.

Remember to have your say on the

draft proposals by April 5.

Of course, not all of our projects

are confined to Ashburton: the

Rakaia Salmon Site upgrades are

coming along, with work on the

toilets starting this month.

This project will be abig upgrade

for this important facility, especially

given its prominence for tourists as

they enter into our district across the

Rakaia bridge.

There are many projects taking

our district forward, ensuring we can

meet future demands.

Labour List MP Jo Luxton

Making sure everychild living in New Zealandcan thrive

When Ivisit schools here in Mid

Canterbury, Isee so many children

full of energy. Ilike to think that’s

because each of them has the

essentials –enough to eat, warm

clothes and sturdy shoes, and aplace

to call home. They have what they

need to thrive.

But sadly that’s not true for every

child.

Around 150,000 New Zealand

children (13 per cent of them) live in

material hardship. That means

having to go without six or more

things most people consider

essential.

Not far off half of those 150,000

children live in severe material

hardship, which is worse. They’re

forced to get by without nine or more

of the basics.

Child poverty in New Zealand is

completely unacceptable. We know

we won’t eliminate it overnight, but

we’ve laid the foundations for

change, and we’re starting to turn

things around.

Last week, Statistics New Zealand

released the latest figures on child

poverty in New Zealand. These

showed that over the past year we’ve

lifted 18,400 children out of poverty.

And in that time seven out of nine

child poverty measures have shown

improvement, where before seven

out of nine had worsened.

Iknow we still have along way to

go. But it’s good to see we’re taking

positive steps as acountry.

Thousands of children, just like the

ones Ivisit here in Ashburton, now

have more energy to learn and play at

school, because their parents are

finding it alittle easier to get by –

thanks to our government’s policies.

That makes me pretty grateful.

In future years we’re likely to see

more improvement, too. Since we

came into office we’ve introduced

our Families Package, we’re steadily

lifting the minimum wage, and very

soon we’ll index main benefits to

wage growth.

The Families Package alone is

forecast to lift up to 74,000 children

out of poverty over the next few

years. Minimum wage increases help

tens of thousands of kids and their

parents across the country.

And the Children’s Commissioner

has said indexing benefits like we are

is the single best thing the

Government can do to combat child

poverty.

When more families feel

financially secure, fewer children go

without. That’s why we’ll keep doing

everything we can to lift incomes and

reduce the cost of living for Kiwi

families.

Every child has huge potential. But

they can’t fulfil it without the basics.

That’s why this government’s work to

lift children out of poverty is so

important.
