Covid-19 prompts call for

zero per cent rates increase

• By Louis Day

CALLS HAVE been made to

stop rates increases in response

to the Covid-19 crisis.

City councillors James Gough,

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

Chu, Phil Mauger, Aaron Keown

and James Daniels have sent a

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking her to lead a conversation

as to how a zero per cent rates

increase could be achieved this

year.

The city council is proposing

an average rates increase of 4.65

per cent across all ratepayers in

this year’s Draft Annual Plan

which is currently under public

consultation until April 5 and

will be finalised before July 1.

The 2018-2028 Long Term

Plan also predicts a 50 per cent

rates increase over 10 years.

Said Cr MacDonald: “In

the current environment it’s

clear business as usual is not

appropriate and the council

needs to look at how we enable

this 12-month rates increase

freeze to occur, it’s crucial for

the economic confidence of our

city.”

Ms Dalziel said the last thing

the city council needed was for

someone to hit the panic button.

“Calm heads must and will

prevail,” she said.

“Our residents and businesses

will be depending on us to

make adjustments, and we will,

however, we will need advice

on the impacts on all aspects of

ACTION: Six city councillors including

Catherine Chu, Sam MacDonald (top right),

James Daniels (above left) and Aaron

Keown have called on Mayor Lianne Dalziel

to lead a conversation on how to achieve a

zero per cent rates increase this year.

the council’s budget, which is

not entirely funded by rates, and

the consequences that will flow

from decisions we make.

The Annual Plan is not

signed off for three months so

we have time to get this advice.

At the same time, the council

is meeting with our economic

development agency, ChristchurchNZ,

the Canterbury Employers’

Chamber of Commerce

and other key players so we are

best prepared for the economic

challenges that lie ahead.”

City council chief executive

Dawn Baxendale did not rule a

zero rates rise out.

“We’re considering a series of

options in light of the extraordinary

circumstances related to

Covid-19. We will discuss these

options with elected members

as we develop the Annual Plan,”

she said.

The push from city councillors

for a freeze on rates rises comes

shortly after Minister of Finance

Grant Robertson announced

a $12.1 billion package to aid

the economy in response to the

Covid-19 pandemic.

The biggest boost is $5.1

billion towards wage subsidies

for affected businesses in all

sectors and regions.

Tips for weathering

the Covid-19 crisis

In times of economic uncertainty during

the Covid-19 pandemic, people can start to

feel stressed about how to manage their

money. However, Canterbury University head

of economics and finance professor Jedrzej

Bialkowski says there are ways to reduce

financial anxiety

FINANCIAL TIPS

• Look at what purchases are essential and non-essential.

Once you determine which purchases are essential, try to

prioritise those.

• Know how much you spend on non essentials. Instead of

takeaways buy fresh produce and cook it at home. It can

boost health and save money at the same time.

Cheaper petrol will make it more affordable to drive further

to wholesale food outlets.

• Think about reducing luxuries as “postponing” them rather

than scrapping them altogether. Eventually, the price of them

could drop anyway due to economic slowdown.

• Keep some subscriptions and memberships if it boosts your

morale. But if you haven’t gone to the gym for the last two

months, now might be a good time to revise your new year’s

resolution and cancel.

• For those looking to set up an emergency budget, save 10

to 15 per cent each pay day. This may mean compromising

retirement savings.

He said watching the situation

in New Zealand escalate while

in Australia was “surreal.”

In spite of this, he said his two

children, one 11 months and the

other two and a half years old,

remained “blissfully unaware”

of the situation.

HEALTH TIPS

The most efficient way to prevent the spread of Covid-19 is by

maintaining basic hygiene. A list of measures outlined by the

Ministry of Health include:

• Keep hands clean by washing them regularly with soap and

water, or hand sanitiser.

• Avoid touching your face, especially the mouth area.

• Stay at home if you are feeling ill or if you are showing any

symptoms like a cough, high temperature or fever and shortness

of breath.

• When coughing or sneezing, do it into a tissue or elbow.

Wash your hands afterwards and clean frequently touched

surfaces regularly.

• Avoid close or personal contact with people who are unwell.

Four other ways to keep your chin up:

• Take up a new hobby to keep your mind off everything else

that is going on.

• Exercise can help keep you healthy both mentally and physically

– just avoid areas with lots of people like gyms and

swimming pools. Instead, take a walk or run outdoors or try

yoga in your backyard.

City’s first

virus case

A PERSON in Christchurch is

among the eight new cases of

Covid-19 in New Zealand.

The city’s first confirmed case is

a woman in her 40s, who arrived

from London on Monday.

Four of the other new cases

are in Auckland, two in Waikato

and another in Invercargill,

Director-General of Health Dr

Ashley Bloomfield says.

That brings the total to 20

since the start of the outbreak.

Details for each case will be on

the Ministry of Health website,

including flight information,

once it becomes available.

The new cases reinforce the

importance of border restrictions.

All were from overseas travel.

Dr Bloomfield asked others

who have arrived from earlier

travel from overseas to voluntarily

self-isolate.

Meanwhile, a parent of a

student of Dunedin’s Logan

Park High School, has described

living in a state of uncertainty

amid news the school will be

closed as 150 pupils are tested

for Covid-19.

They say the school should be

keeping them better informed.

Ministry of Health Director-

General Dr Ashley Bloomfield

announced yesterday that 150

close contacts of the infected

pupil would be put into selfisolation

for 14 days and tested.

The school which was initially

closed for 48hr would now be

closed until at least the weekend.

Testing roll-out

TESTING FOR coronavirus is

being rolled out across the

country, as part of the annual

influenza surveillance.

The first community testing

centre for coronavirus also

opened in Christchurch yesterday

as part of a national roll-out.

Five community-based testing

centres across the Auckland region

would be open for patients

from this weekend, a Ministry of

Health spokeswoman said.

Tests results could be back

within 24hr, the Ministry of

Health said.

RULES COULD be put in place

around vaping in public places.

The Canterbury District

Health Board will meet with the

city council to discuss “positions

and policies” on vaping.

CDHB chairman Sir John

Hansen said the meeting would

take place within the next couple

of months.

This comes after the Queenstown

Lakes District Council

held a three-month trial over the

summer, banning smoking and

vaping on the main beaches of

Frankton, Wanaka and Glenorchy.

A voluntary smoke and vapefree

initiative across Hanmer

Springs was also extended by

the Hurunui District Council in

November.

In January, the United States

implemented a countrywide

ban on certain vaping flavours

following concerns about vaping

amongst teenagers. The

ban applies to only mint and

fruit flavours that are offered in

cartridge-based e-cigarettes.

strategic policy Emma Davis:

THE CANTERBURY Cricket

Trust remains confident it can

still host the 2021 Women’s

Cricket World Cup final at

Hagley Oval in spite of suffering

a major set back last week.

Hagley Oval has been granted

the final, scheduled for March

7, and five other matches – but

on the condition the ground has

permanent lights to meet international

broadcasting standards.

The trust is currently fundraising

money to

secure the six

49m lights

which are expected

to cost

about $4.25

million.

But last week,

city councillors

decided

against granting a loan of up to

$1.5 million to the trust after it

was discovered the Government

would not underwrite it, failing

to meet the condition of the loan

needing to be secured.

However, the loan remains

on the table with Mayor Lianne

Dalziel, Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner and city councillor Sam

MacDonald being the delegated

authority over the loan to determine

acceptable conditions.

Canterbury Cricket Trust

chairman Lee Robinson said it

was confident it could secure the

city council loan within the near

future.

“We are working to resolve this

and are confident in the progress

we are making,” he said.

The Rata Foundation has also

approved a loan of $500,000.

However, it has not been granted

due to certain terms and conditions

not being met. The foundation

would not disclose what

these terms and conditions were

due to commercial sensitivity

and privacy.

Mr Robinson said if the trust

managed to secure these two

loans it would be left with a small

amount of funds to raise and

would have until towards the end

of the year to raise it.

However, Christchurch

Civic Trust chairman Dr Chris

Kissling said “it is not plain sailing”

when it came to securing

the lights.

He labelled a media release

from ChristchurchNZ last week,

which said the city will host six

the final as “ambitious” considering

the amount of work still

ChristchurchNZ chief

executive Joanna Norris said

it remained confident enough

funding would be secured and

did not view the wording in the

press release as misleading.

“It is everybody’s intention

and our expectation that the

lights will be built, there is some

them to be done but the rights to

she said.

Fifty-two per cent thought

the helicopter was “an essential

a further 24 per cent thought it

how to deploy resources.”

In contrast, 11 per cent

thought it should “absolutely”

eight per cent believed it should

not stay as it was unnecessary.

Statistics from the city council

Frightening journey for driver heading

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A PARENT driving to a

school event has described the

frightening moment she thought

a stolen vehicle fleeing from

police was about to hit her

head-on.

Prudence Thomson was driving

along Innes Rd near the

intersection with Papanui

Rd on Tuesday

morning when from

about 200m away she

could see a vehicle

swerving from left to

right.

“We were just

about to get hit

head-on and had to

swerve. It was quite

frightening,” said Mrs

Thomson.

The car was going

about 120km/h, she

said.

She initially thought the

driver was involved in a medical

emergency. But then she saw

police vehicles that had been

searching and pursuing the

driver since about 8.10am after

he had allegedly hit several

parked cars in another vehicle

on Wrights Rd, Addington.

The driver was eventually

St Albans.

Mrs Thomson was on a school

trip to the International Antarctic

Centre, and was with another

parent in her car following a

bus carrying their children.

After calling police she phoned

a teacher on the bus to let them

know to be careful.

She was left

feeling “pretty shaken”

given the March 15

terror anniversary and

the coronavirus situation.

“Everyone is a little

bit frazzled and

said.

Police had been

from about 200m

Roundabouts approved

for deadly intersections

• By Devon Bolger

TWO DEADLY intersections

just south of Christchurch will

get roundabouts in a bid to make

them safer.

Dual-lane roundabouts have

been approved by the Selwyn

District Council for the intersections

of Springs and Marshs Rds

and Shands and Blakes Rds in

Prebbleton.

They are expected to be substantially

complete by 2021.

The Shands and Blakes Rds

intersection was named one of the

worst in Canterbury in 2018 based

on crash statistics.

There have been two fatal

crashes, one serious, and nine

minor at the intersection since

2011. Two people died in a crash

there in February 2018.

There has also been one

serious crash and two non-injury

crashes at the intersection.

The construction contract will

now be tendered and procurement

of detailed designs will begin.

A report presented at the

meeting said: “Detailed design

work needs to be advanced

without further delay so the

project can be substantially

completed by mid-2021,” it said.

An NZTA spokeswoman said:

Cycle lanes

mooted for

Waimairi Rd

AN INCREASE in the number of

cyclists using Ilam’s Waimairi Rd

is behind a proposal to construct

new cycle lanes.

The planned cycle lanes, which

would see the loss of off-street

parking, between Maidstone Rd

and Peer St are now open for

community feedback.

City council transport planning

and delivery manager Lynette

Ellis said the number of cyclists

using Waimairi Rd has increased

due to the uni-cycle route and

major cycle route.

There has been a lot more

pressure on the Waimairi Rd

area, with a number of accidents

involving cyclists,” she said.

Changes would be incorporated

into planned work to resurface

Waimairi Rd over the 2020-2021

summer period, she said.

The number of cyclists using

the uni-cycle route, which crosses

Waimairi Rd at Dovedale Ave, has

climbed by about 20 per cent each

year.

Nearly 300 cyclists travel along

Waimairi Rd daily, Ms Ellis said.

Waimairi Rd currently has onstreet

parking on both sides.

Under the proposal, on-street

parking will be removed on the

east side between Peer St and

Dovedale Ave, along with sections

on the west side.

A FLEEING driver who fired

shots at pursuing police officers

in what he later claimed was

a desperate “suicide by cop”

attempt was yesterday jailed for

nine years.

Tolu Ma’anaiama, 33, was

shot twice in the leg and once in

the chest after police returned

fire in Eveleyn Couzins Ave,

Richmond, shortly before 7.30pm

on February 26 last year following

a pursuit.

After a High Court jury

trial in Christchurch last year,

Ma’anaiama was found guilty on

four charges of using a firearm

against police.

But the jury acquitted him on

charges of attempting to murder

two officers.

A local resident used his cellphone

to film the shootout. The

footage, which featured multiple

loud gunshots and sirens wailing,

was twice played to the jury.

Yesterday, in rejecting

Ma’anaiama’s claims that he was

trying to get police to shoot him

dead, Justice Cameron Mander

said the video clearly showed the

gunman was trying everything he

could to get away.

“You were set on trying to

escape,” he said.

Nine years jail after shootout with police

– Crown prosecutor Mitchell

McClenaghan said it was lucky

nobody was killed.

The trial heard how dog

handler Constable Kurt

Stephenson was patrolling in

Aranui at around 7.20pm on

February 26 when he spotted a

black Holden Executive which

matched a description of a vehicle

wanted by police for a shooting

incident three days earlier.

But as he approached, a person

appeared from the back seat,

got behind the wheel, and took

off.

During the following pursuit,

the car’s tyres were spiked and

a tyre came off the rim entering

Evelyn Couzins Ave – a deadend

street. It was still light on a

summer evening, with members

of the public outside, the court

heard.

The car came to a stop

and Ma’anaiama jumped out

SENTENCED: Tolu Ma’anaiama was jailed

for nine years after being involved in a

shootout with police last year.

of the car.

Stephenson pulled up about

25m away, when he says the

driver faced him, with what

he thought was a pump-action

shotgun held in both hands about

waist height.

With the muzzle “pointed

directly at me”, the police officer

said he “immediately feared

for the safety of myself and for

members of the public in the

area.”

As the male walked a wide arc

with the gun allegedly pointed

at Stephenson, he got out of

his police car and sought cover

behind it, withdrawing his policeissue

Glock pistol, racking the

slide and chambering a 9mm

round from the magazine into the

firing chamber.

He yelled as loudly as he could:

“Armed police, drop the weapon.”

The man did not respond,

Stephenson said, and moved

behind the vehicle, emerging on

the other side, still pointing the

shotgun at him.

Stephenson claims a shot was

fired directly at him, saying

he heard the explosion of the

gunshot, following by the noise of

shotgun pellets being fired in his

direction. He said the “distinctive

whistle sounds” were like nothing

he’s ever heard before.

He told the jury he believed the

shooter was trying to kill him.

Stephenson fired “a number of

rounds” from his Glock back at

the gunman but didn’t think he

hit him.

By then, other police officers

had arrived – a total of five police

officers in four police vehicles.

As the gunman again aimed

the muzzle of his shotgun at

Stephenson, the jury heard that

the officer fired his Glock at him

until he was incapacitated.

He saw his legs bend and

fall down on one side, with the

shotgun nearby.

While officers covered the shot

man with Glocks and Bushmaster

rifles, Stephenson commanded

his police dog Mint to rouse,

biting him on the upper right

arm.

Ma’anaiama was arrested at the

scene and, after receiving first-aid

treatment, taken to Christchurch

Hospital.

A total of 35 shots had been

fired by police officers.

Trainer’s stables raided

THE PROPERTY of a horse

trainer caught up in the police

undercover Operation Inca has

been raided.

The Racing Integrity Unit

went to Nigel McGrath’s West

Melton property on Friday,

hours before two of his horses,

Steel The Show and Could Nine,

were due to race at Addington.

The Star

has learned

equipment

used to ‘tube’

horses was

confiscated,

and the two

horses were

Nigel McGrath

ordered

scratched

from running at the meeting.

McGrath and another man

were at the property.

Tubing is a practice where substances

are fed down a horse’s

throat. There are rules around

when this can be done prior to a

horse racing.

RIU general manager Mike

Godber would not comment on

the raid.

The Star understands the raid

was not connected to Operation

Inca, which has seen a number

of people arrested on drugs and

race fixing charges.

However, an investigation has

been launched by the RIU into

what was found on McGrath’s

property.

McGrath’s lawyer, Pip Hall

QC, said he became aware of

the raid over the weekend, but

would not comment further.

McGrath, Harness Racing

New Zealand chief executive

Peter Jensen and HRNZ board

chairman Ken Spicer, did not

return calls to The Star.

The raid comes several weeks

after McGrath pleaded guilty

at a racing Judicial Control Authority

hearing to a race charge.

At the hearing, details

emerged for the first time of a

bugged phone conversations

involving a big betting businessman

connected to the McGrath

stable and McGrath,

The conversation, secretly

recorded by police during

the Inca operation, involved

how a race would be run. The

businessman, who has interim

name suppression, is facing

criminal charges.

McGrath initially faced a

race-fixing charge in the district

court as a result of the recordings,

which was later dismissed.

The RIU then charged him

with two racing offences which

was heard by the Judicial Control

Authority, an independent

body which hears racing matters.

McGrath pleaded guilty to

the lesser charge of improper

driving. The RIU dropped the

more serious charge of driving

in a manner detrimental to the

interests of harness racing.

He was banned from driving

for six months.

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

IT MIGHT sound like a small

thing, but soap saves lives.

Covid-19 is highly infectious,

so washing our hands thoroughly

and frequently will stop us from

picking it up and passing it on.

Washing our hands needs to

be a habit – something we do

automatically. Arrive at work

– wash hands. Before meeting

– wash hands. After meeting

– wash hands. That’s a habit.

Remember 20sec of washing is

required (sing Happy Birthday to

You twice).

We also need to keep a safe

distance from people, (no

handshakes or high-fives), as well

as staying away from work and

people if we’re feeling sick.

If we slow down the spread,

then the massive increase in

infections among elderly and

vulnerable people that we have

seen overseas won’t overwhelm

our health system, which would

mean many would miss out on

lifesaving treatment.

OPINION

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

We need to work together to beat Covid-19

From the

editor’s desk

Barry Clarke

THE GOVERNMENT launched

a realistic and sensible package

this week to help workers and

businesses to weather what is

going to be a savage ride over

winter.

There will be very few businesses

and people who will be

untouched by the economic

fallout from Covid-19.

What I wanted to hear though

was strong support from the Opposition

for the package, a clear

message to the fearful public

that it would work and support

the Government for the greater

good, and put politics (there is an

election later this year) aside.

But I didn’t get that clear message

from Simon Bridges when

he spoke after Finance Minister

Grant Robertson released details

of the $12.1 billion package on

Tuesday.

New Zealand needs the Government

and the Opposition to

be seen to be working together

as one, fighting the virus and its

economic effects.

New Zealand is better placed

than most to weather the pandemic

and hold on through the

tough economic times ahead.

Our health system is good, unlike

other Western countries

where privatisation and profits

have led to the failing of national

health systems.

A relative of mine in Scotland

says it is carnage there.

The rate of infections in her

city is rocketing up, there is little

food left in the supermarkets

and there is widespread panic

and fear. The National Health

Service is not in the same league

as Covid-19.

There are idiots too, like a

university student, who has been

exposed to the virus, but refuses

to take any notice of pleas to

self-isolate. A recent trip he and

his mates were on may well have

infected a whole community.

Getting through this pandemic

involves common sense

and doing exactly the opposite of

the guy in Scotland.

And it is so simple: We must

keep washing our hands, stay a

reasonable distance from people,

cover the coughs and sneezes

and stay at home if you are not

feeling good. If you can’t get

hand sanitiser don’t stress, soap

is very effective.

And keep trying to spend – it

is vital to keep the wheels of the

economy turning. Every time

a dollar is spent, it helps keep

a person in a job. Every time a

job is lost, it affects the tax take,

which in turns affects how much

the Government can spend.

On page 14 today, the Chinese

Consul General in Christchurch

Wang Zhijian talks about the

virus in the consulate’s regular

advertisement.

He shares some good advice:

“One of the most important

lessons learnt from Covid-19

crisis is that more international

co-operation, not less, is needed

since no single country can deal

with such global challenges alone

or shut them out.

“Unilateralism, finger-pointing

and stigmatization must be rejected,

and more positive energy

galvinized for international

cooperation.

“We are one in the face of

adversity. The international community

needs to strengthen unity

and get fully prepared before the

next global challenge comes.”

Jacinda Ardern and Simon

Bridges need to do the same at

a New Zealand level. Help each

other for a good outcome, please.

Global Collaboration Needed

for Combating COVID-19

The evolving situation of

COVID-19 has caused increasing

concerns worldwide and the

World Health Organization

(WHO) has announced the

outbreak as a pandemic. The

virus does not respect borders or

ideologies, does not distinguish

between races or ethnicities, and

has no regard for a country’s level

of development. As UN Secretary

General António Guterres

has pointed out, “a pandemic

drives home the essential

interconnectedness of our human

family, and preventing further

spread of COVID-19 is a shared

responsibility for us all ”.

China’s progress in containing

the outbreak so far has been

encouraging to the world. China’s

coronavirus epidemic has passed

its peak and new infections were

in significant decline. In Wuhan,

the epicenter of the outbreak, new

confirmed cases recorded a daily

tally of fewer than 10 for seven

consecutive days. More than 70%

of the over 80 thousand confirmed

cases in China have been cured. All

the 14 makeshift hospitals used for

quarantine and curing coronavirus

patients in Hubei Province have

been closed. Meanwhile, work and

production have also been resumed

in an orderly manner throughout

the country.

The battle in China was hard

won and offered experience for

the international community. Dr.

Bruce Aylward, head of WHO-

China joint mission on COVID-19,

has pointed out that China’s

counterattack can be replicated and

other countries don’t have to start

from ground zero. China’s progress

could not have been achieved

without the strong commitment of

the government and cooperation

from the people of China. Under

the strong leadership of President

Xi Jinping, China has rolled out

the most ambitious, agile, and

aggressive disease containment

effort in history, launching a

“people’s war” against the outbreak.

The efficiency of China’s command

and control system has unleashed

tremendous capabilities in

mobilizing personnel and pooling

resources. People in all parts of

China especially those in Hubei

Province have demonstrated

solidarity and made a big selfsacrifice.

Despite the heavy

cost, China’s success has proven

containment of COVID-19 was

possible with resolute and speedy

actions.

As the country that has the most

experience with this disease,

China has been actively engaging

in international collaboration and

lending a helping hand to other

countries in need. China has

so far shared clinical protocols

and best practice in combating

COVID-19 with more than 100

countries including New Zealand,

and participated in on-line

conferences with global medical

experts. Chinese medical teams

have been dispatched to Italy, Iran

and Iraq to back their fight against

the outbreak. China has also

donated 20 million US dollars to

WHO in assisting countries with

vulnerable public health systems.

It is a return for the support we

have so far received from other

countries and also an obligation to

fulfill as a responsible big country.

The outbreak has revealed

inadequacies in global public

health governance and

highlighted the urgent need to

buttress the system. Meanwhile

countries should work together

in developing vaccines for the

pandemic and further coordinate

containment measures. China

would suggest taking up the

initiative of a Health Silk Road

to enhance global collaboration

in the long run. New Zealand

has taken the lead in medical

science especially in the study of

contagious diseases. There is great

potential in cooperation in this

area between our two countries.

Public health crises as well as

terrorism and climate change

are common threats faced

by mankind. In the era of

globalization, the world has

become a community of shared

future. One of the most important

lessons learnt from the COVID-19

crisis is that more international

cooperation, not less, is needed

since no single country can deal

with such global challenges alone

or shut them out. Unilateralism,

finger-pointing and stigmatization

must be rejected, and more

positive energy galvanized for

international cooperation. “We are

one” in the face of adversity. The

international community needs

to strengthen unity and gets fully

prepared before the next global

challenge comes.

that is really hōhā and

it tells me we are putting

racist policies into systemic

practice of police – knowing

that it tells me that

Māori lives don’t matter.”

Sir Kim agreed.

“When the Crown

established an unarmed

civilian police in 1886, it

was with the conviction

that New Zealand would

become a civilised nation,

ruled not by fear, but

through allowing citizens

a voice in how they should

be policed. The principle

However, council

resource recovery manager

Ross Trotter said the

situation is improving as

awareness around what

can be recycled grows.

The team has been

re-visiting the properties

they checked in the first

weeks of the programme

and they have been noticing

a big improvement in

people’s recycling habits,”

he said.

of ‘policing by consent’ has

been breached, and trust

in the police has taken a

massive hit.”

Said Ms Whaipooti:

“Why would we arm a

force that Māori don’t

trust, so it’s not for our

safety because the people

that don’t trust police are

Māori so that is something

again a decision made

about us, to happen to us,

without us. We weren’t

even told about this,”

The claimants are actively

engaging with police

and hope to work closely

work with them on this

issue, she said.

“It’s quite clear to me

that even within the police,

there is disagreement with

how this policy came about

and the decision of this policy.

We are ready to actively

engage, our bottom line is

that the armed response

teams need to stop and they

need to stop today.”

The Waitangi Tribunal

has previously found that

partnership requires Māori

to have substantive input

into decisions that substantively

affect them and that

the Crown has obligations

to consult with Māori in

order to make informed

decisions – in the case of

armed response team’s –

both claimants says this

has not happened.

We all need to work together if we want to slow the spread

of COVID-19. You can unite against the virus now by:

Washing and drying

Wash often. Use soap.

20 seconds. Then dry.

Washing kills the virus by

bursting its protective bubble.

Coughing or sneezing

into your elbow

It keeps the virus off

your hands, so you won’t

spread it to other people

Staying home

St Patrick’s Day celebrated in style

• By Bea Gooding

Mike Poulter

ST PATRICK’S Day festivities

in Ireland may have been

cancelled, but that didn’t stop

Cantabrians from

heading to their

favourite Irish

pub on Tuesday to

celebrate.

Iconic Irish pubs

Bailie’s Bar and

The Bog had lively

crowds.

Edgeware resident

Mike Poulter

has

been going to

Bailie’s Bar for the

last few years and

said the coronavirus

outbreak did

not put him off

going to the bar

to celebrate, but

people were still

concerned about it

nonetheless.

“Since it’s not

here yet people

aren’t so worried

about coming

out, but last year

this place was

chockablock and

the turnout today is

nowhere near what

it used to be like,”

said Mr Poulter.

“I think it’s

[coronavirus] a

bigger threat than

we think, but until

something happens

here it’s not going to

put everyone off from celebrating

today.”

Social distancing guidelines in

Ireland forced bars and restaurants

to close days before St Patrick’s

Day for the next two weeks,

followed by the cancellations of

public parades and festivals.

Although this is not the case

yet here in New

Zealand, Mr

Poulter believed

many were bracing

themselves for

further restrictions

and potential selfisolation.

The Bog had

a lively crowd

on Tuesday with

many tables

filled, but patron

Rebecca Hawtin

noticed there were

fewer people than

usual and believed

coronavirus fears

were to blame.

“I’ve been here

in previous years

and there were a

lot more people,

so I do think it’s

had an impact

on the number of

people who have

turned up today,”

she said.

“In general I’ve

already noticed

in the last couple

of days a drop-off

in the number

of people on the

streets.”

Originally a

religious festival

for St Patrick

of Ireland, the

day commemorated the arrival

of Christianity in the country

and celebrates Irish heritage and

culture.

NEWS

• By Louis Day

AFTER YEARS of inaction on

New Brighton’s Anzac bridge,

city councillor Phil Mauger

decided to take matters into his

own hands.

The Burwood Ward city councillor

came across a local resident

attempting to remedy the two

walkways beneath the bridge,

which have constantly flooded

since the 2011 earthquakes, with

a shovel and a trailer load of

shingle.

This is when Cr Mauger

decided to step in, without the

permission of the city council.

“He was shovelling himself to

death,” he said.

“I told the bloke I’ll do it, not

because I can’t get in trouble, but

because I don’t care.”

Cr Mauger has now filled one

of the walkways with shingle

using a Bobcat, making it about

half a metre higher than it used

to be and allowing for pedestrian

access.

“It is just common sense and

it is making life easier for the

people in the east.”

He said he would seek city

council authorisation to conduct

similar works to the walkway on

the other side of the bridge.

Duncan Sandeman, who is

acting director of the mayor and

chief executive’s office, said

staff were working with Cr

Mauger to ensure if he wanted

to undertake work on city

council assets in the future

he does so with the correct

authorisation.

Eastern suburbs

repairs could

take a while

• By Louis Day

IT COULD be a while until

the eastern suburbs start to

see Lianne Dalziel’s campaign

aspirations for the area come to

fruition.

During October’s local body

elections, Ms Dalziel identified

repairs to the eastern part of the

city’s footpaths, pipes and roads

as one of her main priorities for

this term.

“We need a fully integrated

programme of works for the

east, I have loosely called this the

eastern alliance, which would

essentially be an alliance of contractors

who can take the whole

area bit by bit and systematically

get the work done,” she said during

the campaign.

But chief executive Dawn Baxendale

said any request to pursue

a specific project in the east

would have to be agreed upon by

council. City councillors are yet

to pass on any guidance to staff

around this, she said.

Ms Dalziel told The Star some

decisions could be made as part

of the Annual Plan which is currently

under public consultation

until April 5 and will be finalised

before July 1, and others as part

of the Long Term Plan which will

be reviewed next year.

“We will have to consider the

big issues which have essentially

been on hold in the meantime,

for example, the location of

stopbanks along the Avon River

and the impact on the roading

infrastructure,” she said.

These are big decisions and

will require the community

board and councillors to be fully

briefed and will require community

input. Some decisions

could be part of the Annual Plan,

but the big ones will be part of

the LTP.”

Mrs Baxendale said the approach

of using an alliance of

contractors was something which

was already being applied to

work across the city.

“We are committed as an

organisation to aligning works

wherever possible to achieve

the best outcome in terms of

efficiency and to minimise

disruption to citizens. This is

something we are applying to

our work across the whole city

and it very much encompasses

the concept of what the mayor

outlined,” she said.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Ali Harper takes on prolific

songwriter Burt Bacharach

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHENEVER award-winning

entertainer Ali Harper talks

about American songwriter Burt

Bacharach to audience members

after her shows, their “eyes light

up.”

They go oh my goodness I

remember his music, he is so

fantastic,” she said.

It has inspired Harper to

create a show celebrating the

work of the prolific songwriter

– who composed hundreds of

pop songs from the late 1950s

through to the 1980s.

Featuring Bacharach’s best

music, Harper’s show The Look

of Love will premiere in the city

this week – capturing a Manhattan

cabaret vibe.

A champion of creating onewoman

shows, Harper has performed

many shows honouring

influential artists.

This has included A Doris Day

Special celebrating American actress,

singer and animal welfare

activist Doris Day and Legendary

Divas where she covered singers

such as Shirley Bassey, Dusty

Springfield and Barbra Streisand.

THE COURT Theatre’s

upcoming season of Lysander’s

Aunty will still premiere next

week amidst the Covid-19 crisis.

But additional safety measures

will be rolled out to allow

patrons to attend the season, but

other upcoming shows have been

cancelled.

It comes as Showbiz

Christchurch will postpone its

2020 seasons of My Fair Lady,

Chess in Concert and Buddy –

The Buddy Holly Story.

The My Fair Lady season

will move to September 11-26

and Buddy – The Buddy Holly

JAZZY: Entertainer Ali

Harper’s new show

celebrating the music

of American composer

Burt Bacharach will

capture a Manhattan

cabaret vibe. ​

“I have covered famous women

and I thought now it is time to go

to that music that is really fabulous

toe-tapping music of the

50s, 60s, 70s and 80s,” she said.

As part of her show, she will be

accompanied by Tom Rainey on

the piano and Harry Harrison

on the guitar.

Harper described Bacharach’s

Barbara George

Story will provisionally open in

September next year. Chess in

Concert will be rescheduled to

music as having a resurgence

with the Austin Powers films and

he had written music for famous

singers including Dionne Warwick

and Aretha Franklin.

“It is quite incredible, he is

quite a genius and what I have

learnt is that Burt will sit at the

piano for a whole day sometimes

just to get one chord. He is so

future dates.

The Court Theatre is

determined to stay open with

its current plan is to reduce

house numbers to 250 patrons

per night, which will allow the

company to provide additional

spaces between audience

members.

Scared Scriptless will also

continue running every Friday

and Saturday night with capped

and spaced attendances.

But The Court Theatre has

chosen to cancel its upcoming

seasons of Hir, The Ferocious

Animals Petting Zoo and its

pedantic, such a perfectionist,”

she said.

The Grammy award winner’s

perfectionism is a topic Harper

will explore in her new show.

“We are going to behind the

scenes on what it takes to be a

songwriter – a lot of discipline.

“He is on his fourth marriage –

as you can understand the

April performance of The Early

Early Late Show.

Its chief executive Barbara

George said the decision has not

been made lightly with many

factors leading to it – such as

difficulties around travel.

All ticket holders will be

receiving communications,

advising them how they can

exchange their tickets or receive

a credit.

With events changing day by

day it will be monitoring the

situation closely and reacting

accordingly. All ticket holders

will be contacted when or if

women have kind of had a gutsful.

But some of his wives were in

the industry as well and understood.

I think he would be quite

hard to live with,” Harper said.

As an entertainer, Harper said

she would like to think she is

level-headed, with a family and a

normal life.

“But there are times when I am

in show mode and I just have to

shut myself away, I have to rehearse,

I have to learn my scripts

- otherwise I get overwhelmed

and a bit stressed,” she said.

Growing up in the New York

borough of Queens, Bacharach

was encouraged to play classical

piano, but he had a love for jazz.

“He would sneak out, use

a fake ID, sit in the jazz clubs

and soak in the sound of Dizzy

Gillespie and Charlie Parker and

so he was really influenced by

that jazz,” she said.

The Look of Love will be

performed at The Piano:

Centre for Music and the

Arts this Saturday and

Saturday, March 28.

figures include our international students who

bring a wonderful diversity to our school where

we can all learn from and with each other.

• Our new Middle School building has been

named Aonga Ake, this is the Ngāi Tahu word

for “to scoop up with two hands”. It captures

what it would be like to first encounter a

puna (well) to drink from it and understand

it at a surface level. Aonga Ake is a beautiful

encapsulation of our school values and mission

statement. Work is progressing quickly, and we

hope to be in the new building next year.

• Polyfest – our students performed with skill

and energy, having been chosen to perform as

the final school, closing the day of celebration.

We are incredibly proud of this group of

students.

• Learning continues every day, both within

and outside of classrooms. We are working

to ensure our students are empowered in

their learning, engaging them and giving

them agency. We are building on our 2019

success offering opportunities for students to

participate in Social Action.

• As we move into Autumn, we encourage

everyone to wash their hands frequently, to

cough and sneeze into the crook of elbows, not

hands, and to stay at home if sick.

Athletics and Swimming

Success

It was a busy start to the year for Hillmorton High School

in 2020 with our best attended Swimming Sports and

Athletics days yet.

Swimming Sports Day at Te Hāpua was filled with

music and plenty of fun to go around in our bombing

competitions, hydrosliding, dance offs and of course,

our very competitive swimming competition. There

was a huge number of participants who all performed

exceptionally well on the day as our

traditional and successful swimming

competition was combined with a new

participation focused format.

Athletics were held at Ngā Puna

Wai for the second year and there

were a number of exceptional

performances on the state of the

art track, despite the hot afternoon

temperatures. The highlight of the

day however, came in the field as

Morita beat a 55 year old shot putt

record. Morita threw a staggering

9.14m beating the previous record

of 9.10 by C. Berry in 1965. The

day was full of colour, competition

and a great, positive environment

as the students represented their

houses and demonstrated our

values of Turangawaewae and

Whanaungatanga.

Outdoor Education at HHS

Outdoor education has long been an

integral part of Hillmorton High School

but more recently has shown real growth

due to the support of the community.

Hillmorton High School staff and students

are incredibly grateful to both The

Halswell Lions Club and The Lloyd Morgan

Charitable Trust and would like to publicly

thank them for their help in purchasing

a wealth of specialist equipment that will

help us sustain our growth in this area.

We have received an Emergency Satellite

Device, a specialist kayak trailer, 8 Feel free

sit on top kayaks and 9 kayak and water

safety helmets.

Our eight new sit on top kayaks have

already had a lot of use. They arrived just in

time to use during our end of year camp at

Living Springs in 2019. This year they have

already been well utilised with the Level

1 Outdoor Education class who will be

sharing their new skills as leaders on the

upcoming Year 9 camp at Orton Bradley

where all students in year 9 will be able

to access outdoor learning (new initiative

for 2020). The specialist kayak trailer has

ensured that all kayaks are transported

safely and has meant we are able to teach

students how to safely load, maintain and

repair kayaks as well as increasing their

time on the water honing and crafting their

kayak skills. The kayak trailer will be used

every term this year and two times a week

for the first 5 weeks of Term 2.

The Garmin InReach Satellite device has

been extremely valuable and most recently

used on our Year 12 overnight bush solo

experience where there was no cellphone

coverage and we were reliant on our

Personal Locator Beacon. This device has

enabled two-way communication to trigger

an interactive SOS to the 24/7 search

and rescue monitoring center, track and

share our location live with the school and

parents plus includes TOPO maps, GPS

routing, messaging from anywhere and

up to date weather reporting. With further

trips planned to the Craigieburn, Banks

Peninsula, Mt Somers and many other

places in Canterbury where cell phone

reception is limited we now have peace

of mind that we are fully prepared for any

emergency in any environment whilst also

modelling best practice.

Outdoor education has been extensively

researched and proven to improve

children’s health, development, learning,

sense of civic attitudes and behaviours

and also, school performance. The

equipment we have received has

therefore had an immediate impact on

our students, giving them more access

to these opportunities, reducing course

and camp related costs and ultimately,

increasing the safety of our young people.

It has also been a privilege to share these

resources with other organisations within

our community already. Without such

donations the ability to provide such

experiences would be significantly limited

and thus, we are extremely grateful.

Keep calm and carrot on

• By Ian Knott

As autumn kicks in

and the evenings get

cooler, it’s time to look at

making the most of the

seasonal vegetables on

offer. Carrots and kumara

are in great condition

and readily available, so

what better way to use

them than in a velvety,

warming soup

ROASTED CARROT,

BUTTERNUT AND

KUMARA SOUP

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 butternut pumpkin (about 1kg),

peeled, seeded and cut into 2-3cm

pieces

500g carrots, peeled and cut into

2cm rounds

500g golden kumara, peeled and

cut into 3-4cm pieces

2 onions, peeled and cut into

eight wedges each

3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper

¼ cup pumpkin seeds

3 Tbsp chopped dried cranberries

3 Tbsp chopped fresh sage

Directions

Preheat the oven to 230 deg

C. Divide the butternut, carrots,

kumara and onions between two

foil-lined baking sheets. Drizzle 1

Tbsp of olive oil over each baking

sheet and toss the vegetables to

coat. Roast until lightly browned,

rotating the pans halfway through

cooking, about 25min.

In a large saucepan, combine

the roasted vegetables and 8 cups

water. Bring to a boil over high

heat. Lower the heat, cover and

simmer until the vegetables are

very tender, about 15min.

Using a blender and working

in batches, puree the soup,

transferring pureed portions to a

clean pot.

Season with salt and pepper.

The soup can be covered and

refrigerated for up to four days.

In a heavy, medium skillet,

heat the remaining 1 Tbsp olive

oil over medium-high heat. Add

the pumpkin seeds and stir until

toasted, about 2min. Add the

cranberries and sage and stir until

fragrant, about 1min. Remove

from the heat and season with salt

and pepper.

Stir the soup over medium

heat until it simmers. Ladle the

soup into bowls and top with the

seed/cranberry mixture and a

sprinkling of pepper.

What’s this? Carrot in

fudge? It sounds very

odd, but with only five

ingredients, this fudge is

simple to make, delicious

and surely counts as one

of your 5+ a day,

right?

CARROT CAKE FUDGE

Ingredients

4 cups white chocolate

chips

1 cup sweetened condensed

milk 2½ Tbsp

pureed carrot (ensuring it’s

very smooth)

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp nutmeg

Directions

Line a 20cm by 20cm pan with

aluminum foil and set aside.

Melt the white chocolate chips

and sweetened condensed milk

together over medium heat until

smooth and combined, stirring

often.

Alternatively, melt in the

microwave. Microwave for 1min

at half power, stir well, and then

continue to microwave at 30sec

intervals stirring very well until

just combined.

Stir in the pureed carrot,

cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Pour into the aluminum foil

lined pan.

THE BEGINNING of the

‘changeover’ from summer to

winter gardening has arrived.

Autumn brings regular rainfall

and a welcome reprieve from hot,

dry temperatures for many areas

around the country.

GARDENING 23

Change of seasons gives plants a reprieve

Vegetable gardens

Harvest your remaining

summer crops and remove any

plants that have finished cropping

and pop them in the compost

bin. Towards the end of the

month, winter vegetables can

be planted as either seedlings

or seeds and include; beetroot,

broccoli, brussels sprouts,

cabbage, cauliflower, carrots,

lettuce, onions, radish, silverbeet,

spinach, swedes and turnips.

Replenish the soil with much

needed nutrients by adding

compost. Mix well with existing

soil to a spade and a half depth.

Remember to rotate where you

will plant different vegetables

compared to last year, and stagger

plantings to provide continuous

harvesting throughout the season.

Protect your seedlings from snails

and slugs and keep watering if

there is a lack of rainfall.

Flower gardens

Sadly, most summer flowering

annuals that thrive in the hot

months are nearing the end of

their lives. As temperatures cool

towards the end of the month,

begin planting out winter annuals

like calendulas, nemesia, pansies,

snapdragons and wallflowers.

As with your vegetable garden,

prepare the soil well and make

sure there is enough drainage

for the coming wet, winter

conditions.

Cut back any flowering

perennials and plant any new

seedlings where desired.

March/April are the final

months for planting out bulbs.

Good preparation of soil is

critical as many bulbs will not be

disturbed for a number of years

so it’s worth giving them the best

start.

In general, bulbs thrive in an

open, sunny position where the

soil is well drained. Bulbs to

plant include anemones,

crocus, daffodils, freesias,

hyacinth, iris, lachenalias,

nerines, ranunculus, tulips and

watsonias. Remember to mark

where you plant them.

Fruit trees and berries

A number of pear and apple

varieties are ready for harvesting

this month, while the classic

golden queen peach ripens in

early march. Passionfruit are

turning purple now, indicating

they are ready for harvesting.

Pull them directly off the vine or

collect as they fall to the ground

when ripe. Mandarins, lemons

and oranges are now forming

on citrus trees so keep watering

consistently, mulch well and

continue feeding with citrus

fertiliser. Berry plants such as

CARE: Apply

lawn fertiliser

and dead

head roses

next week.

raspberries, can be safely pruned

this month.

Herb gardens

Herbs can start looking a

little tired this time of the year

and many begin flowering and

eventually ‘go to seed’. Cut back

plants regularly or plant new

specimens. Another option is to

harvest, dry and then store herbs

for use over the winter months.

It’s a simple process and is very

rewarding.

Rose gardens

Where roses have been well

cared for over the summer

months, you will be rewarded

with displays of blooms in March

and April, and varieties such

as iceberg will flower right into

winter. Begin applications of rose

fertilisers to rose bushes and dead

head flowers regularly. Mulch

with fresh compost.

Lawns

Even though we have had

just a small amount of rain,

work can now begin on

renovating existing lawns or

sowing a new one. Lawn fertiliser

can be safely applied this week –

make sure it is watered in well.

Regular mowing can begin again

to encourage strong, healthy grass

growth.

Shrubs and ornamentals

Add compost around all

existing shrubs and ornamentals.

Hold off purchasing new plants

until around May when new

season specimens start arriving at

garden centres.

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question

came from Tracey-Lee.

Congratulations!

Can I sow new lawn seed just

after treating lawn for grass

grub? If not, how

long should I

wait?

A

WIN a Daltons Blooming Bulbs Pack!

A waiting period would only apply if

you have been using herbicide on

your lawn to control weed growth.

This would have an impact on

sowing a new lawn.

If you have been using insecticide to

control grass grub, then check the label for

any instructions or warnings that it would

affect lawn growth.

To ensure successful germination, it would

be better to wait until the weather cools and

autumn rains become more regular before

sowing a new lawn or repairing an existing one.

Club, community rugby off

CLUBS ARE likely to feel the

Rugby postponing all club and

The postponement includes

rugby matches at every club and

at least in the short term while

the situation with the Ministry of

Health is monitored.

Canterbury Metro

The premier metro competition

was due to begin on March 28.

“From our view it was expected,

Goldsmid.

“It remains to be seen if April

18 will be the start date. If it’s

April 18 we’ll be rapt. My gut

feeling is it won’t be, but fingers

crossed let’s hope that it is.”

If the start to the season is delayed

financially with a potential

loss of subs and not being able to

meet sponsorship obligations.

Goldsmid hopes that in the

case of a further postponement

club sponsors would be understanding

of the situation, but like

most businesses at the moment

they will feel the squeeze.

“It’s going to put clubs under

financial strain because obviously

players aren’t going to pay

subs until they start playing,”

said Goldsmid.

“I would hope that we will have

some rugby, but it may be in an

abbreviated form of what we’ve

been used to. If it’s delayed for

too long it will certainly have

implications at the end of the

season because we lose grounds

back to summer sport.”

NZR has advised any team

practice activity must be adapted

to comply with the limits the

Ministry has set. This includes

minimising person-to-person

contact and maintaining hygiene

standards including not sharing

drink bottles, washing hands and

regularly cleaning rugby equipment.

School rugby and in most cases

junior club rugby competitions

start in early May and appear

unaffected by the postponement

sport deprivation

WITH self-isolation now

presenting itself as a reality

for many of us it can be easy

to get down on yourself,

particularly without the

However, never fear,

Pros: Minimal chance of

virus transmission, pairs

well with drinking.

Cons: Can lead to weight

gain, dark and dingy setting.

Lawn bowls: Unlike

darts, practising at home is

difficult. Why not channel

your inner Gary Lawson

and give yourself a shot

at being the next star on

the televised Bowls 3Five

league by joining your local

bowling club.

Pros: Relaxing and

outdoors, chance of making

it on midweek evening

reach 50 wicket mark in one season

• By Gordon Findlater

ONLY NINE St Albans players

have ever taken 50 premier

wickets in a season. On Saturday

Matt Holstein and James Tapper

created club history by becoming

the first pair to achieve the milestone

in the same season.

The pair achieved the feat

during Saints’ nine-wicket win

over East Christchurch Shirley.

The top of the table win means

Saints are now 20.98 points clear

at the top of the two-day trophy

standings and will be crowned as

champions after the remainder

of the club season was cancelled

due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Right-arm quick Tapper was

the first to bring up 50 wickets

when he dismissed Ben Hanham

leg-before-wicket. Left-arm spinner

Holstein then reached the

milestone with the final wicket

and his fourth of the innings

when Easts’ Nathan McNichol

was caught by Bailen Thatcher.

“Both those boys are having

great seasons and have been

holding the bowling attack

together with support from a few

other guys making cameos. They

have been very instrumental to

our success, not just this year,

but over a number of years,” said

Saints captain Ben Langrope.

It’s not the first time either

player has taken 50 wickets in a

season. In 2015/16 Tapper took

58 wickets in his first season

with the club. Meanwhile,

Holstein – who has been with

Saints for more than a decade –

took 50 wickets last season. They

are part of a very rare club. The

MILESTONE MEN: Matt Holstein and James Tapper have become the first St Albans pair to

take 50 wickets in the same season.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

first Saints player to accomplish

the feat was Andrew Nuttall in

1980/81. The most prominent

name on the list is former Black

Caps spinner Mark Priest, who

took 50 wickets in 1985/86.

The coolest thing is to have

Matty do it on the same day.

He’s been a huge contributor for

Saints over a long period,” said

Tapper.

Holstein was the T20 competition’s

top wicket-taker with 16

at an average of 8.69. He also

took 11 wickets in the one-day

competition and has taken 23

in the two-day trophy. Tapper is

the leading two-day wicket-taker

with 33 at an average of 12.36.

He also took 12 one-day wickets

and five T20 wickets this season.

“We both have pretty similar

philosophies in terms of being

quite patient in our bowling approach.

When there’s patience at

both ends it brings wickets,” said

Holstein.

The pair’s exploits to help them

claim silverware have meant

even more after Saints missed

out in the one-day and T20 competitions

earlier in the season.

“It was quite frustrating not

to have won either the one-day

or the twenty20 competitions

because we put ourselves in

really good positions there and

lost semi-finals. This two-day

competition had a little bit of

extra meaning behind it,” said

Holstein.

As for celebrating the feat,

Holstein and Tapper say the

celebrations were reserved on

Saturday, but expect that to

change now they have finished as

champions.

“A few of the boys are getting

on now, so the big nights are

becoming few and far between,”

said Tapper.

The leading wicket-taker in

premier cricket this season

is Burnside West University

spinner Sam Carlaw, who has

claimed 58 scalps.

Stewart calls time on long cricket career

• By Jacob Page

CANTERBURY Country

batsman Shanan Stewart did

not expect to play the role of

strike bowler in his final game

of representative cricket last

weekend.

The 37-year-old who played

four one-day internationals for

New Zealand and more than

240 games for Canterbury took

three wickets with his part-time

seamers at Mainpower Oval

last Friday to help Canterbury

Country retain the Hawke Cup

for the winter

“It was an incredibly flat pitch

and I’d been carrying a knee injury

the past couple of weeks but

I didn’t want to field all the time

so I thought I’d have a bowl.

“I just wanted to land it on the

seam and let things happen and

they did.

“My kids are getting older and

I want to be able to go to their

sports more often but I have

loved every moment of it.”

When he was dismissed for

20 on the final day of the match,

his teammates formed a guard

of honour to recognise his contribution

after he had told them

before the first ball it would be

his final match.

He said having his family and

current Canterbury Country

coach Michael Sharpe there was

a nice way to say goodbye.

“Sharpey was my coach when

I first started for Canterbury

so there’s 20-odd years in that

relationship.

“My dad passed away last year

so I thought about that and my

VETERAN: Shanan

Stewart on his way

to a century for

Canterbury Country

against Hamilton

three weeks ago.

Stewart announced

his retirement last

weekend.

mum and my kids were there so

it was nice to have them there.

“Everyone’s time in sport

comes to an end and now it is

just another opportunity for a

young guy to step-up.”

Although Stewart was a Canterbury

Country junior he made

his senior debut for Riccarton at

16 while attending St Bede’s.

He said a move back to Canterbury

Country club cricket

helped his career because of the

improved quality of pitches he

played on.

Stewart made his Black Caps

debut in 2010 before calling

time on his Canterbury career

in 2014.

Winning the Hawke Cup twice

was a personal highlight.

He managed 113 to help get the

Hawke Cup off Hamilton three

weeks ago.

“It’s hard to win, the training

we do twice a week and the trips

we go away on together.

“Results of the past few weeks

are the result of hard work over

the past few years plus it has

been great to play with so many

young players who have gone on

to bigger things.’’

He had not thought about

still playing for Southbrook but

would not rule out the idea next

season if needed.

Chance to farewell Holden in style

HISTORICALLY, car brands have

come and gone, changing markets

have seen the demise of many

famous names.

There is probably no badge more

iconic in the Australasian market

than Holden and, it too, will be

phased out in the next year or so as

its parent company General Motors

is withdrawing the brand in total.

February’s bombshell

announcement was the most

significant marketing decision I’ve

experienced in the 32 years I’ve

been writing about motor vehicles,

and as a former Holden owner, it’s

fair to say I’m pretty gutted that the

range of cars that has served Kiwi

motorists so well for over 60 years

will no longer be with us.

That being the case, this

evaluation of the Holden Acadia

could well be the last I experience

from the brand, ironically, it’s

a car which comes direct from

GMC in the United States, GMC

being part of the wider General

Motors conglomerate that focuses

primarily on trucks and pick-ups.

However, the Acadia distances

itself from the ute market, it is built

on a sophisticated monocoque

floorpan with fully independent

suspension.

Under the bonnet sits a 3.6-litre

V6 petrol engine which is rated at

231kW and 367Nm, these healthy

outputs are realised tall in the rev

band at 6600rpm and 5000rpm

respectively.

If you think these figures look

familiar, it’s pretty much the

same power plant that is fitted

to the range-topping ZB-series

Commodore, a car that was

destined to run out at the end of

this year. The Acadia also gets the

same transmission, it’s a ninespeed

unit that is characterised

by smooth shifts and ratios which

ease the load on the engine so that

respectable fuel economy can be

gleaned.

Because of its size and weight

(2032kg), the Acadia needs as

much benefit in this department

as it can get. Holden rate it with

a 9.3-litre per 100km (30mpg)

combined cycle rating. By my

reckoning that’s achievable, the test

car was constantly listing around

10.8l/100km (26mpg), taking

into consideration I did a lot of

around the city driving which is

never conducive to good economy

results.

On the highway the engine lopes

over gently at 1500rpm at 100km/h

CAPABLE: The Acadia has useful off-road ability.

HOLDEN ACADIA LTZ-V: Luxury four-wheel-drive SUV built in the United States.

in top gear, using fuel at an

instantaneous rate of 7.8l/100km

(36mpg).

The Acadia is also a useful offthe-seal

traveller. It lands in both

two-wheel-drive and four-wheeldrive

variants. The test car was the

top spec – LTZ-V, and although

the driveline won’t get to places a

low ratio set-up will take you, the

mechanicals are perfect for low

grip situations such as the skifield

access road, tackling the tracks

leading into those high country

lakes, or taking the boat to the

slipway. For the record, the Acadia

has a 2000kg tow rating and a

203mm ground clearance figure.

It also travels with compliant

suspension travel. Unlike US

vehicles of the past which have

been quite soft in the suspension,

the Acadia’s spring and damper

rates are definitely biased towards

moderate firming, yet comfort isn’t

compromised.

Pushed into a corner there is

just enough steering feel thanks to

beautiful Continental sport tyres,

and they are big at 235/55 x 20in.

There is a lot of rubber on the road

and that promotes a secure feeling

of attachment.

Power out of a corner is vivid.

The quad-camshaft engine is a

howler, it works through the rev

band freely, but you don’t have to

• Price – Holden Acadia

LTZ-V, $71,990

231kW, 367Nm, ninespeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.8sec

• Fuel usage – 9.3l/100km

have it singing to the red line to get

performance, the torque curve is

just broad enough so that it utilises

the mid-range.

However, if you like to have it

breathing freely for a highway

overtake for example, it hunts to

the red line willingly, there was

never a point where I thought

the wrong gear was selected, the

way it arranges those nine ratios

is very clever. On the subject of

performance, the Acadia buyer can

expect a standstill to 100km/h time

of around 7.8sec.

As mentioned, the Acadia lands

here in three specification levels,

each with the option of four-wheeldrive.

The entry-level model lands

at $49,990, while the test car with

its high grade trim and 4WD sits

at $71,990. For that money it is

comprehensively equipped – and

you’d expect nothing less. It is very

American in the way it is trimmed

and it does get all the latest safety

technology that comes out of the

General Motors’ stable.

The Acadia makes no pretence

that it is genuinely American,

its styling is designed to capture

attention, and the luxury feel

inside takes me back to the best

vehicles that have come out of the

States in terms of build quality and

comfort.

Sadly, the Acadia, along with

those other great Holden-badged

cars, has fallen victim to a

challenging downunder market.

The decision-makers claim

marketing right-hand-drive cars is

unproductive, and GM will focus

on left-hand-drive only markets.

That’s tremendously

disappointing for those involved

in the Holden brand and who have

invested in the product. However,

I recently had a quick chat with

the chief executive at the local

Holden dealership and he was

hugely optimistic about the future

of the company, and was confident

Blackwells will trade well into the

future, hopefully, with another

franchise on board.

I’m also hoping another model

or two will trickle my way before

stocks completely run out.
