People are now able to enjoy

what were hidden treasures,

and if they have any

“Lyttelton Museum has been

Court of

Appeal

to rule

on quake

repair

battle

A SCARBOROUGH Hill

homeowner has taken IAG to the

Court of Appeal over whether

he can be paid for damage from

separate earthquakes.

Graeme Moore owns a large

property on Searidge Lane which

suffered extensive damage in the

February 22 and June 13, 2011,

earthquakes.

Mr Moore insured the house

with IAG New Zealand Ltd for

accidental loss during the period

of November 2010 to November

2011, when the two earthquakes

occurred.

The IAG policy said the maximum

replacement cost was $2.5

million plus GST.

Mr Moore said repairs exceeded

that and he was entitled to be

paid up to that amount for each

earthquake.

However, a High Court decision

rejected that last year.

On May 7, the Court of Appeal

heard whether a clause in the

policy limited IAG’s liability.

Covid-19 restrictions likely to affect

first cruise ship season for new berth

• By Jess Gibson

A BUSY first cruise ship season

scheduled for Lyttelton Port

Company’s new $67 million

berth could fall flat due to the

Covid-19 pandemic.

The structure was set to open

in November and LPC has

taken on about 80 bookings for

the 2020-21 cruise season.

While there

haven’t been

any booking

cancellations

yet, whether the

cruise ships can

enter the country

or not will

Simon Munt

depend on border

restrictions

set out by the Government.

Cruise ships have been temporarily

banned from entering

New Zealand waters until June

30, but borders will remain

closed beyond that date.

LPC marketing manager

Simon Munt said the company

continues to watch the situation

as it develops and has been

working with relevant industry

interests and agencies to stay

informed.

“There are numerous

UNCERTAINTY: Lyttelton Port Company’s cruise ship berth

may not be able to take on passenger vessels over the 2020-

21 cruise season due to border restrictions.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

factors that affect the situation,

not least of which is how

long border restrictions remain

in place.”

Meanwhile, Mr Munt said

LPC remains confident that the

construction of the cruise berth

will be completed by November.

He said construction on the

berth ceased along with all

other capital projects at the

port during level 4 but resumed

safely under level 3.

It will eventually allow

large cruise ships to dock in

Christchurch for the first time

since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

Mr Munt said the berth can

accommodate some vessels

other than cruise ships, and

LPC has already done planning

around this due to the season

being less than half the year.

New Zealand Cruise

Association chief executive

Kevin O’Sullivan said many

cruise lines have been sticking

to their schedules due to the

temporary cruise ship ban

ending in June.

However, he said “the reality

is” that it will all depend on

when the Government decides

to open its borders.

“There seems to be no end

date put out by the Government

as to when the border restrictions

will lift.”

He hopes if a transtasman

bubble is formed between New

Zealand and Australia, it would

include cruise ships.

“At the moment, there’s certainly

nothing set in stone.”

NZCA will be talking with

CLIA Australasia during a

webinar today to discuss future

operating framework for the

cruise industry, what it will look

like once operations resume and

what industry stakeholders can

do to support the resumption of

cruise operations.

In Brief

SEA SCOUT HALL SECURITY

The gate at Lyttelton’s Sea

Scout Hall has been secured

to stop vehicles from doing

burnouts around the Naval

Point area. It comes after a

removable bollard near the

hall had its locking mechanism

tampered with, and tyre marks

were later left at the Lyttelton

Recreation Ground and Naval

Point public parking area. The

city council’s community parks

manager Al Hardy said there

have been three complaints

about the activity in the past

two weeks and the gate will be

secured until the bollard has

been repaired.

WIDER PATHWAY LIKELY

Part of the Coastal Pathway

near Moncks Bay could be

temporarily widened to

encourage social distancing in

response to Covid-19. The city

council is applying for extra

Government funding aimed

at helping councils around the

country create more peoplefriendly

spaces to assist people

with physical distancing and

make it safer to travel around the

city on foot or by bicycle. Nine

projects are being submitted,

including the Coastal Pathway

and the cycle route from Ferry

Rd to the central city.

SET BACK: Redcliffs School’s opening date has been pushed back to about the

middle of June due to delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Covid-19 lockdown delays

opening of Redcliffs School

• By Jess Gibson

REDCLIFFS School pupils

would have been settling

into a brand-new campus

by now.

The long-awaited opening

of the Beachville Rd

site was set for May 1.

However, that date has

been pushed back by

about another month due

to delays caused by the

Covid-19 pandemic.

The school’s former

site on Main Rd

was demolished

following the

February 22, 2011,

earthquake and

construction of its

new $16 million

campus began in

Rose

McInerney

2018.

Principal Rose

McInerney said

there is no exact

revised date for when pupils

and staff will be able to

move in but thinks it will

likely be about the middle

of June.

She said excitement remains

high as 90 builders

work “tremendously hard”

to complete the finishing

touches like landscaping,

decking and other internal

“bits and pieces.”

Workers were

broken into seven

groups, so they

were able to maintain

strict alert level

3 conditions.

Mrs McInerney

was thankful for

all the support

received from the

Redcliffs community

during

“another hurdle.”

“The amount of

messages and kind

thoughts has really made

a huge difference to

everybody.”

Do you need a Plumber, Gasfitter,

Drainlayer or Electrician?

BP Redcliffs also chipped

in to show their support by

gifting 90 pies to the builders

on Thursday.

Mrs McInerney said the

official opening celebration

is still planned for June

25 – and Prime Minister

Jacinda Ardern has signalled

she is still keen to

attend, as has Kiwi singer

Dave Dobbyn.

In May last year, Ms

Ardern said she would “do

everything she can” to be

at the opening after pupils

sent her multiple letters of

invitation.

Said Mrs McInerney:

“We might not be able to

have the same number of

people but we will certainly

have all of the school

kids there and hopefully

a few of the special guests

who have helped us

through this journey.”

Mr Moore’s lawyer, Neil Campbell QC,

He said each earthquake resulted in

damage of over $2 million.

However, IAG’s lawyer, Christine

In 2018, the museum received

the collection to be properly catalogued

Images include historic Lyttelton

panoramas and people.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Passion for Japanese

leads to fulfilling career

Emma Leonard’s passion for Japanese

language stems right back to primary

school. “My best friend was Japanese and

she taught me a lot about the language and

culture which really fostered my curiosity.”

Straight from high school, Emma

enrolled to study the Bachelor of Language

(Japanese) at Ara Institute of Canterbury.

She says she chose Ara because it was a far

more intensive Japanese degree than other

tertiary options.

“Where most other universities just had

general Japanese classes, Ara’s Japanese

degree is divided into multiple classes like

translation, interpretation, grammar and

general culture classes.”

Emma says this approach helped her

improve her Japanese far more than any

other option would have. She also liked the

small classes at Ara. “Compared

to the large class sizes of 30+

students at bigger universities,

the small classes at Ara felt very

much one-to-one. I really felt they

viewed me as an individual, not

just as another student.”

She also says her classes were

fun, and her tutors were ‘really

upbeat’. “One day we’d be learning

through a game, the next day we’d

have a debate and the day after

that we’d be reading long articles

in Japanese. It wasn’t just reading

from a book all day, it was much

more hands-on.”

Emma says highlights of her

studies were an exchange to

Tania

Ara graduate

Yokohama National University, and an

internship she did in her third year. “I

really appreciate how it gave me real-life

experience to understand how I’d use my

Japanese in the workplace.”

Now having graduated, Emma is

working as a sales representative for

Nippon Food Supplies in Brisbane. “It’s

quite a demanding job but it’s very

rewarding. I drive all over Queensland and

see some amazing places and talk to some

really cool clients. The degree gave me a

very strong cultural understanding which

really helps me in my workplace because

virtually everyone there is Japanese.”

Wine

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Something is very

different about orange

• By Mark Henderson

WHILE UNLIKELY to

be found on the shelves of

your local supermarket,

there is a relatively new

category of wine beginning

to gain traction in the

marketplace, with visibility

in specialist wine shops and

winery cellar doors.

These are ‘‘orange’’ wines,

also known as amber, skin

contact or skin fermented

wines.

I should dispel at the

outset the myth that

oranges are used in their

production. These are

wines made from white

grapes and have an orange

or peachy colour due to

the methods used in their

making.

In a case of what’s old is

new again, orange wines

draw from the ancient

wine-making style common

to Georgia, in Eastern

Europe, where the juice

from the white grapes,

skins, stalks, and pips are

placed into clay amphoras

called queveri, partly buried

underground.

The lids are sealed and

the wine remains in contact

with the skins and stalks for

a period ranging from a few

weeks to several months.

In essence, this is

using red wine-making

techniques on white grapes,

so the finished wines pick

up colour and phenolics

from the skins while

deriving tannins from

the stalks and pips. This

leads to radically different

textures in the wines, with

a notably grainy, chewy

mouth-feel and tannic

structure making them

particularly suited as an

accompaniment to food.

Wine-makers use this

wine style as a vehicle

for their natural wines,

eschewing additives,

sulphur, fining and

filtration, which can lead

to the finished wines being

cloudy due to retained

sediment.

However, this is not de

rigeur. Many wine-makers

use just a little skin contact

of a few days or a week, as

they like the extra textural

component this gives, but

finish and bottle the wine

more traditionally.

Take a walk down a very

different path.

Solo dad finds new

direction and purpose

Solo dad Tim Crawford hopes his

experience of overcoming challenges and

finding a new direction in life will inspire

others to do the same.

In 2006, while he was working as a gym

instructor and personal trainer, Tim took

full custody of his two children. Becoming

a solo parent meant he had to quit his job

and go on the domestic purposes benefit.

Even though Tim had his hands

full raising his kids, he never lost his

motivation or desire to get back to work.

In 2015 he got a job as a builder’s labourer.

“That company saw my potential and they

offered me an apprenticeship,” he says. “I

grabbed it with both hands.”

As part of his apprenticeship, and in

order to become qualified in the trade,

Tim studied a National Certificate

in Carpentry at Ara Institute of

Canterbury.

“It was awesome, even better

than I’d expected,” he says. “I was

treated like I was important and

not just a number, and the staff

went out of their way to help me

succeed. I was supported and

guided all the way.”

Tim says the classroom

environment at Ara was

interactive and fun with a

touch of humour. “It was easy

to ask questions and the course

information was clear and concise

with easy-to-follow book work

and presentations. A highlight

BAY HARBOUR

PAGE 11

was seeing the tiny homes being built and

seeing the whole process of construction.”

Tim says he didn’t do well at school but

he made up for it at Ara. “I love to learn

and Ara made it easy for me to do so.

My story of getting off the benefit and at

the same time looking after my children

and running a household is something

I’m really proud of. I hope it will inspire

others who are in the same position I was,

especially as an adult apprentice. I’m a

better, happier person for it and some of

my best moments in life were spent in the

classrooms at Ara.”

Sedan boosts Toyota Corolla load space

TOYOTA NEW Zealand is

pulling no punches marketing its

Corolla.

Not only are there a handful

of new variants within the range

– bearing in mind the latest

generation series landed here just

over two years ago – but a fresh

pricing structure makes for valuepacked

buying across sedan,

hatchback and wagon options.

I recently evaluated the new

wagon and remarked on its

value at just below $30k; another

newcomer is the SX sedan and it

is the subject of this evaluation.

It is also value at $32,990, and

to be honest if I was a buyer I

couldn’t choose between the two,

I particularly like wagons and

sedans, and both have special

appeal, although the sedan with its

2-litre engine against 1.8-litre for

the wagon may just tip the balance.

And SX grade is certainly for

me, it translates to cloth interior

trim, but it also has plenty of other

goodies to keep me happy in

the cabin such as sat nav, paddle

shifters, and radar cruise control.

The latter is part of the Toyota

Sense suite of safety kit that is fitted

throughout the Corolla range and

it is state-of-the-art, easily earning

a five-star Australasian New Car

SENIOR LIVING

Assessment Program rating.

A totally new platform was

developed for the latest generation

Corolla, and it formed the basis

for the extensive array of body

styles that all sit on a complex fully

independent suspension system.

This draws me to the range, I

like the idea of all four corners

working in their own way and

with the spring and damper rates

set to a medium compromise, the

Corolla sedan feels sporty and well

attached to the road.

In saying that, the SX variant

rides on 205/55 x 16in Dunlop

rubber, there’s nothing wrong

with the handling and the tyres

are very quiet, but if I was a

buyer I think I’d opt for an 18in

wheel which is standard on other

Corolla models, they would offer

a lot more presence.

There are no surprises under

the bonnet, well there are in some

ways, the new sedan is available as

a hybrid as well.

However, the SX is solely reliant

on petrol power, its 2-litre engine

is now well-established into the

Corolla hatch and sedan, and it

is a no-nonsense unit with power

figures of 125kW and 200Nm, the

outputs realised at 6600rpm and

4100rpm respectively.

TOYOTA COROLLA SEDAN: Boot section is integrated into

traditional body style.

While the latter would appear

to make the engine peaky, that’s

not the case, the engine is happy

to work low down, and with its

pairing to a continuously variable

transmission the engine finds its

happy place through the midrange.

Toyota has worked hard with

the CVT system, it now works

almost like a traditional torque

converter automatic with physical

gears, it is a 10-step system and

can be locked into any pre-set step

by sequentially using the main

gearshift lever or paddles.

As an aside, there’s also a sport

mode which heightens engine

urgency and adjusts the way the

ratio works so that acceleration

can be ushered in just that little

bit quicker. Toyota claims a 9.2sec

standstill to 100km/h time, while

by my stopwatch a 5.9sec 80km/h

to 120km/h overtaking time can

be achieved.

These figures relate to brisk

motoring, the beauty of a 2-litre

engine is that it’s not working

hard, the sedan weighs in at

around 1300kg, which means a

healthy power-to-weight ratio.

That also means the engine isn’t

working hard for the majority

of the time and that translates

to respectable fuel usage figures.

Toyota also claims a six-litre per

100km combined cycle average.

That correlates well with the fuel

usage display within the car, it

was constantly listing around

7.1l/100km with 5l/100km showing

instantaneously at 100km/h.

Combining good performance

and economy isn’t achieved

easily, but given the Corolla’s long

history that’s something Toyota

has been able to work on over the

years, it is wonderfully efficient,

yet all models feel feisty and

there’s just that element of sporty

appeal that will lure those who

like to push along a bit when the

open road beckons.

• Price – Toyota Corolla SX

sedan, $32,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4630mm; width, 1780mm;

height, 1435mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1987cc, 125kW,

200Nm, continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.2sec

• Fuel usage – 6l/100km

It’s also nice to know that

when the long straights run out

there is a chassis underneath

that is capable of dealing with

the twists and turns without

affecting the level of comfort we

have come to expect from one

of the automotive world’s most

successful nameplates.

For the record, Toyota lists

the sedan’s boot space with a

load capacity of 470-litres, that

compares to 294-litres for the

hatch and 390-litres for the

wagon. Interesting figures which

will certainly get those who are

looking for load space scratching

their heads.

Toyota is pushing hard the

hybrid message, however, there’s

still a lot of life left in fossil fuelonly

drivelines. The Corolla in

all forms is a fuel miser and I’d

find it a difficult choice to choose

between any variant. However,

the SX sedan certainly captures

my attention for its honesty and

all round appeal.

Vitamin C supports

immunity

According to Dr. Richard Z. Cheng, MD,

PhD, (China Epidemic Medical Support Team

Leader) in Shanghai, China, they now are having

excellent recovery rates with severe viruses

since the introduction of high dose vitamin-C

therapy. In an official statement from Xi’an Jiao

Tong University Second Hospital; “High dose

vitamin C has achieved good results in clinical

applications. We believe that for patients with

severe pneumonia and critically ill patients,

vitamin C treatment should be initiated as soon

as possible after admission…High dose vitamin

C can not only improve antiviral levels, but more

importantly, supports the prevention of acute

lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress

(ARDS).” Dr. Cheng also states “We need to

broadcast a message worldwide very quickly:

Vitamin C (small or large dose) does no harm to

people and is the one of the few substances that

has a chance to prevent us from getting and can

treat, severe viral infections.

Dr. Robert F. Cathcart MD, successfully treated

over 20,000 patients with large doses of vitamin

C. He stated; “I have not seen any flu yet that

was not cured or markedly ameliorated by

massive doses of vitamin C.”

Vitamin C is an antioxidant with strong

antiviral properties. For a healthy adult around

1000mg two or three times daily will support

a strong immune system. At the first sign of

immune weakness increase the amount and

regularity. If you take too much vitamin C it

may have a laxative effect on you. In a healthy

person this laxative effect may be between

four and fifteen grams of vitamin C. If you

have been effected by a virus your body will

need much more vitamin C before the laxative

effect is obvious. It could be over ten times the

amount you can tolerate when healthy. This

bowel tolerance is a good way to see when you

have enough vitamin C for optimum benefits.

Maximum relief of symptoms is obtained at a

point just short of the amount which produces

diarrhea, or around 80-90% of bowel tolerance.

When you have a virus you need to satisfy the

body’s vitamin C requirements because if the

body becomes depleted of vitamin C you run

the risk of the disease progressing and further

complications. The biggest mistake is to not take

enough.

Vitamin C powder can easily be made into a

drink and this is an excellent way to take it when

higher doses are required.

Vitamin C powder and a simple protocol

is available from the natural health advisers

“We are currently all living in a time of unprecedented

uncertainty and disruption. It gives us a time to slow

down and to listen to our thoughts and reflect on what is

happening around us.

Our thoughts are influenced by what we listen to and

we are then challenged by what we assume we need

and to what is important. In every moment we now have

room to reflect and to embrace change. It has given

me the ability to entertain change and to open up my

imagination.

In these paintings I have tried to express this through

subject, colour and movement. I have allowed myself

to dream and to challenge my mind to new choices; to

create images representing energy and fun, expressing

love and dance, risk, and freedom to express. Food

replenishes love and caring. The flower presents beauty

and the art of giving. It is also a time to meet your

shadows, to let your mind play, to have a conversation

with yourself.

Freedom of thought and expression has no boundaries

to ones imagination. The art to create is a great

healer for me and is a way in which I can express and

communicate my thoughts, desires and feelings.

“Moments in time are special - embrace them, enjoy

them, celebrate and share them.” - Jacqui Gibbs

Chamberlain

While Jacqui’s subject matter is invariably the human

form, it is secondary to her exploring form, structure,

movement, colour and texture.

Jacqui lives and paints on an isolated farm in

Port Levy, Banks Peninsula with her husband and

daughter Phoebe.
