Protecting breeding penguins<br />

aim of Sumner beach boulders<br />

FIFTEEN boulders placed on<br />

Sumner beach near Shag Rock<br />

will help protect white-flippered<br />

penguins during their nesting<br />

season.<br />

When the Coastal Pathway<br />

was built, nesting boxes were<br />

included in the rock embankment<br />

by Shag Rock as it as an area where<br />

the penguins are known to nest and<br />

breed between August and February<br />

each year.<br />

Over the last breeding season,<br />

there was evidence of five pairs of<br />

penguins breeding in the area.<br />

Said city council transport<br />

planning and delivery manager<br />

Lynette Ellis: “We want to make sure<br />

these penguins have a secure nesting<br />

spot that is undisturbed by people<br />

or dogs. On the advice of our coastal<br />

rangers we recently placed additional<br />

boulders to give them some more<br />

protection.”<br />

She said the white-flippered<br />

penguin is endemic to Canterbury<br />

and is classified by the Department<br />

of Conservation as acutely<br />

threatened.<br />

“It is important that we do all we<br />

can to protect the nesting areas.<br />

“It’s amazing to have these birds<br />

breeding in a spot so close to an<br />

urban area and we want people to<br />

have a sense of guardianship. The<br />

last thing we want is people or their<br />

animals inadvertently disturbing<br />

SHELTERED: Large rocks have been placed near Shag Rock, Sumner, to protect white-flippered penguin<br />

nesting boxes from dogs and pedestrians.<br />

the nesting penguins.’’<br />

Ms Ellis said people can still access<br />

the beach at Shag Rock from the<br />

Coastal Pathway but they should use<br />

the access stairs, which are located<br />

a bit further along the path towards<br />

Sumner.<br />

The city council gained consent to<br />

place the rocks in January and was<br />

not required to notify the public.<br />

But Redcliffs resident Pat McIntosh<br />

said she believed the city council<br />

should have told the public what it<br />

was doing.<br />

“It came as a bit of a surprise.”<br />

The city council has been<br />

contacted five times by 11 different<br />

people over the boulders – one of<br />

those was a complaint.<br />

Meanwhile, the city council<br />

and Environment Canterbury are<br />

currently investigating options to<br />

address the issue of rock spoil which<br />

has come to the surface of<br />

the sand near Shag Rock following<br />

the construction of the Coastal<br />

Pathway.<br />

THE MYSTERY of why<br />

boulders appeared near Shag<br />

Rock has been solved (see<br />

page 1).<br />

The 15 boulders will help<br />

protect white-flippered penguins<br />

during their nesting<br />

season from dogs and people.<br />

Nesting boxes were<br />

included in the Coastal<br />

pathway embankment but<br />

more protection has been<br />

deemed necessary – hence<br />

the boulders.<br />

The penguins nest and<br />

breed between August and<br />

February.<br />

White-flippered penguins<br />

are acutely threatened so very<br />

good care needs to be taken<br />

for their protection.<br />

So it’s great to see the city<br />

council doing its bit.<br />

And for Joe Public – stay<br />

away and keep your dog on<br />

a lead if you are near Shag<br />

Rock.<br />

That could be easier said<br />

than done, I suspect.<br />

Funding decisions on projects due<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

TWO HERITAGE buildings<br />

in the <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News area<br />

could be getting a spruce up<br />

with help from the city council.<br />

Decisions will be made tomorrow<br />

over a $4872 grant towards<br />

works on<br />

Akaroa Lighthouse,<br />

and a<br />

$13,549 grant<br />

towards the<br />

painting of 2<br />

Cunningham<br />

Tce, Lyttelton.<br />

Tori Peden<br />

Both grants<br />

would cover<br />

50 per cent of<br />

the funds needed to complete<br />

each project.<br />

Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board chairwoman Tori<br />

Peden said having the heritage<br />

landmarks being protected and<br />

taken care of is important.<br />

“It would keep the character<br />

and keep our history. We’ve got<br />

to tell the story of these heritage<br />

structures and how the history<br />

of our people came to be.”<br />

Akaroa’s Lighthouse Preservation<br />

Society applied for funding<br />

to carry out maintenance,<br />

conservation, and display of the<br />

original clockwork mechanism<br />

and machinery of the structure<br />

on Beach Rd.<br />

The heritage item is New<br />

Zealand’s only operating decommissioned<br />

lighthouse and<br />

one of a very limited number of<br />

lighthouses in the world which is<br />

regularly open to the public.<br />

The lighthouse, constructed<br />

RESTORATION: Decisions will be made<br />

tomorrow over two grants which would be<br />

used for works on Akaroa Lighthouse and<br />

in 1878, is run entirely by<br />

the community volunteers of<br />

the LPS, which is reliant on<br />

donations and grants to support<br />

their work and maintain the<br />

structure.<br />

A separate report by Resource<br />

Management Group Ltd<br />

recommends the approval of a<br />

grant to paint the building at<br />

2 Cunningham Tce, Lyttelton,<br />

which was built in the 1870s.<br />

The recommended grant<br />

would pay for part of the proposed<br />

works to the property,<br />

which has high historical and<br />

social significance for its association<br />

with prominent Canterbury<br />

businessmen and civic figures<br />

John Thomas Peacock and Peter<br />

Cunningham.<br />

In a slightly later period, the<br />

house has significance for its<br />

use as a boarding house, and for<br />

the long period of ownership<br />

and occupation by the Robson-<br />

Merrifield family.<br />

It reflects a characteristic<br />

feature of Lyttelton life through<br />

to the mid-20th-century, where<br />

properties were commonly<br />

retained in and passed down<br />

through families over multiple<br />

generations.<br />

In Brief<br />

CRASH SITE INVESTIGATION<br />

City council traffic engineers<br />

and police were set yesterday<br />

to investigate a fatal crash on<br />

Summit Rd. It would focus on the<br />

role road infrastructure played in<br />

a <strong>May</strong> 19 crash where Anthony<br />

Deverson, 78, of Wigram, died<br />

after his car went over a bank<br />

about 1km from Evans Pass Rd.<br />

The city council is also looking<br />

at road safety improvements<br />

for a different section of the<br />

road following the death of<br />

sisters Tayla, 17, and Sunmara<br />

Alexander, 15, in a crash last year.<br />

FUNDS FOR PATHWAY<br />

Funding has been secured for a<br />

project which will see the Moncks<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> section of the Coastal<br />

Pathway temporarily widened to<br />

enable social distancing. The city<br />

council has received more than<br />

$80,000 from the Government<br />

to pay for the project, as well as<br />

another one in the central city<br />

which involves putting temporary<br />

measures in place at pedestrian<br />

and cycling pinch points.<br />

JETTY BEAM REPLACEMENTS<br />

Two rotten beams and one rotten<br />

pile will be replaced at Redcliffs<br />

Jetty, off Beachville Rd. The<br />

jetty will be closed and unusable<br />

during the maintenance period,<br />

which is scheduled to take place<br />

from June 2 to June 19.<br />

Online book<br />

initiative for seniors<br />

AN ONLINE book programme has<br />

been set up with older Cantabrians<br />

in mind, aiming to maintain social<br />

interaction with others while physically<br />

distanced.<br />

Campfire - Stories Read Aloud for<br />

Adults was created by the city council’s<br />

libraries staff, featuring a fresh chapter<br />

read by librarians from a book every<br />

Wednesday and Friday.<br />

City council head of libraries and<br />

information Carolyn Robertson said<br />

library staff produced the programme<br />

with “our older adult community in<br />

mind and in collaboration with Age<br />

Concern.”<br />

“It is a story time for seniors as we<br />

help ensure that our older library users<br />

remain engaged during the lockdown,”<br />

she said.<br />

“We believe<br />

Campfire can boost<br />

well-being for older<br />

adults and bring a<br />

fresh face – and voice<br />

– to their day. They<br />

can watch and listen<br />

to our librarians as<br />

they read aloud.<br />

Ms Robertson<br />

said for many older<br />

people who have enjoyed books, listening<br />

to another voice can bring comfort in<br />

connection.<br />

“Some may have also lost the ability to<br />

read because of poor eyesight or physical<br />

impairments. We want to hold on to that<br />

social interaction and love of books.”<br />

Age Concern Canterbury chief<br />

executive Simon Templeton has<br />

welcomed the story time programme,<br />

describing Campfire as “a great<br />

initiative.”<br />

“Older people are often avid readers,<br />

so any programme that enables people<br />

to stay connected with their library, with<br />

others and with reading is great,” Mr<br />

Templeton said.<br />

“Some specific groups will benefit,<br />

including those with vision impairment,<br />

dexterity issues, or the housebound. I<br />

think this type of programme will grow<br />

in popularity as the population ages.<br />

“I see it as a daily part of residential<br />

care therapy for rest home residents, and<br />

the means to have a ‘book club’ for those<br />

who can’t read.<br />

“While many older people do not use<br />

the internet, there is a large number who<br />

do – and this is growing,” he said.<br />

Anyone can access Campfire via the<br />

libraries’ website.<br />

Stabilisation work<br />

on slip under way<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

Carolyn<br />

Robertson<br />

A NEW retaining wall is being installed<br />

on Wainui Main Rd in French Farm to<br />

stabilise a localised slip which happened<br />

early last year.<br />

As well as building the retaining wall,<br />

city council contractors will carry out<br />

a partial reconstruction of the road,<br />

minor drainage works and associated<br />

civil works.<br />

The cost of the remediation work will<br />

cost between $250,000 and $<strong>27</strong>5,0000.<br />

There will be some noise disturbance<br />

during the work, which will be carried<br />

out from 7am to 7pm, Monday to<br />

Saturday, and the road will be reduced<br />

to one lane.<br />

For residents on Wainui Main Rd,<br />

bins are to be put out as usual before<br />

6am on the set collection day and the<br />

crew will move and return them.<br />

Black Cat retains ferry contract<br />

Phil Clearwater<br />

BLACK CAT Cruises will<br />

continue to connect Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> with Lyttelton by<br />

sailing across the harbour for<br />

another 12 years.<br />

The company, which has been<br />

operating the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

ferry service since 2000, has<br />

retained its contract by completing<br />

Environment Canterbury’s<br />

public transport procurement<br />

process.<br />

Transport<br />

portfolio lead<br />

councillor<br />

Phil Clearwater<br />

said that<br />

ECan is looking<br />

forward to<br />

continuing its<br />

partnership with Black Cat.<br />

Together they are still looking<br />

at options to get a new, lowemission<br />

vessel as the current<br />

ferry is nearing end of life.<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News reported in<br />

October they aimed to have the<br />

new vessel in service by 2021 but<br />

Cr Clearwater said it may now<br />

be another year out.<br />

“It’s slower than myself or<br />

Black Cat would desire but<br />

equally they are working on it as<br />

hard as they can.<br />

“As we investigate options<br />

for a new vessel, top of mind<br />

will be our community’s desire<br />

for a low-emission public<br />

transport fleet, something we<br />

heard resoundingly through our<br />

Regional Public Transport Plan<br />

consultation.<br />

He said over the next two<br />

years, ECan will work alongside<br />

Black Cat to make an informed<br />

decision on the propulsion system<br />

of a new ferry.<br />

“This will include closely<br />

watching the results of other<br />

electric ferry implementations as<br />

they progress, as well as engaging<br />

with local Canterbury boat<br />

builders.”<br />

The new contract allows for essential<br />

maintenance work to be<br />

undertaken on the current ferry<br />

so it can continue operating for<br />

the next few years, while plans<br />

and costs for a new vessel are<br />

finalised.<br />

Cr Clearwater said the contract<br />

period has been extended<br />

SMOOTH SAILING:<br />

HUNTER<br />

from nine years to 12 years and<br />

will start from November this<br />

year.<br />

“The first two years will see<br />

the contract price remain as it is<br />

now, except to accommodate the<br />

critical maintenance work on the<br />

current vessel. The remaining 10<br />

years will reflect the new vessel<br />

build and running costs.<br />

'The feasibility work done so<br />

far indicates that the cost of an<br />

electric vessel could be similar to<br />

a diesel-powered vessel, so if we<br />

can be confident that an electric<br />

vessel can meet the requirements<br />

of the service then we will<br />

commission one.”<br />

Boy racer<br />

numbers reach<br />

pre-Covid levels<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

POLICE ARE disappointed<br />

the number of boy racers in<br />

Lyttelton has increased to pre-<br />

Covid-19 levels since level 2<br />

started.<br />

Canterbury road policing<br />

manager Inspector Greg Cottam<br />

said extra police were on patrol<br />

over the weekend and saw an<br />

increase in the number of boy<br />

racers compared to during alert<br />

level 3.<br />

“We’re seeing them popping<br />

up in the normal spots, at the<br />

airport and over in Lyttelton<br />

way.<br />

“Everything’s probably<br />

returning to normal, which is<br />

disappointing because we still<br />

want people behaving. The<br />

reality is that Covid is still<br />

here.<br />

“We have seen more activity<br />

from that sort of community,”<br />

he said<br />

Inspector Cottam said it is<br />

important drivers take the rules<br />

of level 2 seriously and police<br />

will be there to enforce them if<br />

they do not.<br />

“We’ll be enforcing the<br />

restrictions that are set down for<br />

that, along with any breaches of<br />

the Land Transport Act.”<br />

Concerns problem gambling<br />

could rise under Covid-19 climate<br />

With financial hardship<br />

and unemployment<br />

on the rise as a result<br />

of the Covid-19 crisis,<br />

could problem gambling<br />

follow suit? Louis Day<br />

investigates<br />

THE NUMBER of people on<br />

the job seeker benefit across<br />

Canterbury rose by 4.8 per cent<br />

last month compared to the same<br />

period last year.<br />

The situation is likely to worsen<br />

with the city’s economic development<br />

agency ChristchurchNZ<br />

forecasting<br />

up to 36,500<br />

jobs will be<br />

lost across the<br />

region over<br />

the next 12<br />

months.<br />

A recent<br />

Dr Ekant Veer<br />

survey from<br />

the Canterbury<br />

Employers’<br />

Chamber of Commerce<br />

showed 63 per cent out of 470<br />

businesses across the region were<br />

experiencing “significant financial<br />

impacts” from Covid-19. The<br />

survey also showed 30 per cent<br />

of businesses believed their staffing<br />

numbers would have to be<br />

reduced by more than 25 per cent<br />

in order to survive.<br />

Canterbury University professor<br />

of marketing Dr Ekant Veer,<br />

who closely studies social change<br />

and consumption patterns, said<br />

research showed there was a link<br />

between problem gambling and<br />

financial hardship.<br />

“We know that people who<br />

are facing financial hardship in<br />

general, not necessarily who are<br />

unemployed, are more likely to<br />

gamble. As we see a society in<br />

where everyone’s incomes are<br />

taking a hit we may see gambling<br />

rise as a result of that,” he said.<br />

Statistics show gambling in<br />

New Zealand has been on a<br />

steady incline for the last nine<br />

years.<br />

SPIKE: The financial hardship brought on by Covid-19 restrictions and economic downturn is<br />

expected to bring a spike in problem gambling.<br />

PHOTO: GETTY<br />

In 2011 New Zealanders spent<br />

$2 billion on gambling. Last<br />

year it had increased to $2.4 billion.<br />

The most popular form of<br />

gambling last year was gaming<br />

machines outside of casinos at<br />

$924 million which was followed<br />

by the $616 million spent inside<br />

of casinos.<br />

Salvation Army Oasis Centre<br />

for Problem Gambling team<br />

leader Graham Payne expected to<br />

see a spike in gambling as restrictions<br />

eased, with a particular<br />

concern over pokie machines<br />

within pubs and bars. He has<br />

helped problem gamblers with<br />

their addictions since 1992.<br />

“When people who have got<br />

gambling issues haven’t done it<br />

for a while there is going to be<br />

that catch-up phase, that is how<br />

they operate, ‘I haven’t done it for<br />

a while I need to catch up I have<br />

saved all this money.’ I feel that<br />

issues could really increase over<br />

the first three to six months with<br />

the pubs reopening,” he said.<br />

Mr Payne had also witnessed<br />

an increase in online gambling<br />

over the lockdown period and<br />

expected it to continue even as<br />

other forms of gambling are<br />

made available.<br />

He said early signs of gambling<br />

becoming an addiction were that<br />

Andrée<br />

Froude<br />

you were spending more time<br />

and money gambling than<br />

intended, starting to lie about<br />

your behaviour, constantly<br />

thinking about<br />

gambling,<br />

chasing your<br />

losses, isolating<br />

yourself from<br />

loved ones and<br />

blaming others<br />

for your problems.<br />

pokie machines.<br />

“Pokies are the most harmful<br />

form of gambling in New<br />

Zealand. The majority of people<br />

that seek help for a gambling<br />

problem do so because of pokie<br />

machines,” she said.<br />

The foundation is currently<br />

urging the Government to cut<br />

back the country’s pokie machines<br />

in coalition with The<br />

Salvation Army and Māori health<br />

agency Hapai te Hauora.<br />

Ms Froude said the main reason<br />

behind this was to reduce the<br />

reliance community groups have<br />

on grants from pokie trusts,<br />

but also to reduce gamblingrelated<br />

harm across the country.<br />

A letter from the coalition to<br />

Internal Affairs Minister Tracey<br />

Martin said the Government<br />

could easily replace the $242<br />

million worth of pokie grants<br />

from within its own funds and<br />

argued the shutdown of pubs<br />

and pokie machines due to the<br />

pandemic presented a “golden<br />

opportunity” for an overhaul of<br />

the system.<br />

Your Local Views<br />

Readers respond to<br />

last week’s article<br />

about Foodstuffs<br />

South Island’s decision<br />

to transform Redcliffs<br />

New World into a Four<br />

Square<br />

Julia Pringle – I am<br />

still disappointed that New<br />

World will now become a<br />

Four Square. I will likely<br />

go to another New World<br />

instead.<br />

Ann Newsom – I think<br />

it may backfire on them actually,<br />

I’ve spoken to quite<br />

a number of people who<br />

have said they’re not going<br />

to be shopping there if it’s<br />

going to be a Four Square. I<br />

wouldn’t do a weekly shop<br />

there now, like I have been.<br />

Helen Peate – I do<br />

all my grocery shopping<br />

at Redcliffs New World as<br />

do many of my friends. Nowhere<br />

have I read or heard<br />

the reason that it is more<br />

financially viable for the<br />

name to change from New<br />

World to Four Square. Both<br />

are owned by Foodstuffs.<br />

So why the name change<br />

and reduction in staff<br />

numbers? Are we going to<br />

get less choice and cheaper<br />

products or a reduction in<br />

service? Why has there not<br />

been an explanation?<br />

Michaela Hicks – I<br />

read the article in the newspaper<br />

about the transition<br />

for Redcliffs New World to<br />

become a Four Square. As<br />

a previous employee there,<br />

I think that a rebrand is<br />

good for the store as it is<br />

not turning over a sustainable<br />

income. However,<br />

I would’ve thought they<br />

could rebrand it to a mini<br />

Pak’n’ Save like they have<br />

at Levin, as it would be of<br />

good size, and the prices<br />

would be cheaper. I think<br />

because Four Square is<br />

more expensive than a New<br />

World it may not thrive as<br />

people may go to another<br />

supermarket.<br />

ONE OF the more<br />

colourful native birds seen<br />

around the estuary is the<br />

welcome swallow or warou.<br />

In fact, people are often<br />

surprised the swallow’s<br />

appearance when they see<br />

a photo as there are not<br />

many opportunities to see<br />

them close up.<br />

But large flocks are<br />

common on the edges<br />

of the estuary and<br />

particularly around the<br />

oxidation ponds when<br />

they are erratically darting<br />

above the water to catch<br />

midgets.<br />

Elsewhere they will also<br />

feed on flies, moths and<br />

other small insects.<br />

Did you know that the<br />

swallow even drinks water<br />

in flight? They swoop up<br />

water as they fly above the<br />

ponds or estuary.<br />

The swallow is also one of<br />

few bird species that sleep<br />

or rest in flight as they<br />

prefer to stay airborne 24/7<br />

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY<br />

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai<br />

Trust, a non-profit organisation formed in 2002 to protect one of<br />

New Zealand’s most important coastal wetlands. Each week she<br />

introduces a new bird found in the estuary. Her column aims to raise<br />

the understanding of the values and uniqueness of the area.<br />

Swallow likes to be airborne<br />

common on the edges<br />

Estuary.<br />

PHOTO: CLIVE COLLINS ​<br />

unless they are nesting.<br />

They only reach the age<br />

of about six years, but they<br />

sure make the most of<br />

their time by producing<br />

two, sometimes even three<br />

clutches of eggs per season.<br />

The female will incubate<br />

the eggs alone but feeding<br />

the chicks is a shared<br />

task with help from other<br />

swallow family members.<br />

It is so lovely to see how<br />

some bird species use this<br />

combined effort and share<br />

the load of chick feeding<br />

duties.<br />

The other notable fact<br />

is how the swallow has<br />

adapted so cleverly to<br />

civilisation and now prefers<br />

to build their cup-shaped<br />

nests under the eaves of<br />

homes away from direct<br />

sunlight, or under bridges<br />

or culverts.<br />

The swallow is another<br />

truly stunning and amazing<br />

bird in our estuary<br />

worth looking after - so<br />

how can we help them to<br />

thrive?<br />

Predator control, picking<br />

up litter when we see it and<br />

of course, keeping our dogs<br />

on the lead. Luckily the<br />

city council has established<br />

great dog parks all around<br />

the city so no excuse to<br />

let dogs roam around our<br />

estuary.<br />

Tasty Bites<br />

Quick and easy fried rice<br />

• By Ian Knott<br />

Quick, easy and versatile,<br />

fried rice can be used<br />

as a side dish or main<br />

meal. This tasty version is<br />

loaded with vegetables<br />

and can be transformed<br />

into something even<br />

greater by adding your<br />

favourite protein<br />

The best fried rice<br />

4-6 servings<br />

Ingredients<br />

3 tbsp butter, divided<br />

2 eggs, whisked<br />

2 medium carrots, peeled, diced<br />

1 small white onion, diced<br />

½ cup frozen peas<br />

3 cloves garlic, minced<br />

salt and black pepper<br />

4 cups cooked and chilled rice<br />

3 green onions, thinly sliced<br />

3-4 tbsp soy sauce<br />

2 tsp oyster sauce (optional)<br />

½ tsp toasted sesame oil<br />

Directions<br />

Heat ½ tbsp of butter in a large<br />

sauté pan over medium-high<br />

heat until melted. Add egg, and<br />

cook until scrambled, stirring<br />

occasionally. Remove egg, and transfer<br />

to a separate plate.<br />

Add an additional 1 tbsp of butter<br />

to the pan and heat until melted. Add<br />

carrots, onion, peas, garlic, and season<br />

with a generous pinch of salt and<br />

pepper. Sauté for about 5min or until<br />

the onion and carrots are soft. Increase<br />

heat to high, add in the remaining ½<br />

tbsp of butter, and stir until melted.<br />

Immediately add the rice, green onions,<br />

soy sauce and oyster sauce (if using),<br />

and stir until combined. Continue stirring<br />

for an additional 3min to fry the rice.<br />

Then add in the eggs and stir to combine.<br />

Remove from heat, and stir in the sesame<br />

oil until combined. Taste and season with<br />

extra soy sauce, if needed.<br />

Serve immediately, or refrigerate in a<br />

sealed container for up to 3 days.<br />

Top tips<br />

It’s important to use cold, cooked rice.<br />

So plan ahead and have some prepared.<br />

Warm rice doesn’t tend to fry well when<br />

it hits the hot pan and becomes soggy,<br />

sticky clumps.<br />

If you haven’t planned ahead, just<br />

cook up a fresh batch of rice, spread it<br />

out as thinly as possible on a backing<br />

tray and put it in the fridge for 30min<br />

(or freezer for 10-15min).<br />

Use a high heat. This will help<br />

brown the rice and vegetables, and<br />

prevent the rice from steaming in<br />

the pan. Don’t leave it sitting too<br />

long though. Nobody wants burnt<br />

fried rice.<br />

fighter. But wars cost money. And transporting drugs is the fastest way<br />

to raise cash. Tomas runs a factory. But this factory is hidden deep<br />

by Jazz thornton<br />

A hard-hitting, thought-provoking account of surviving suicide attempts<br />

and moving on to a better life, which provides practical help and<br />

inspiration to anyone affected by depression or suicide. Jazz Thornton first<br />

attempted to take her own life at the age of 12. Multiple attempts followed<br />

and she spent time in psychiatric wards and under medical supervision as<br />

how her negative thought patterns came to be, and how she turned those<br />

thoughts - and her life - around. Who and what helped, and what didn’t<br />

help. The insights she gives will help create greater understanding of those<br />

grappling with mental illness, and provide support for those around them<br />

who desperately want to help. Jazz went on to attend film school, and to co-found Voices of Hope, a<br />

non-profit organisation dedicated to helping those with mental health issues and show them there is<br />

a way forward. She creates online content to provide hope and help.<br />

Chardonnay a true<br />

peach of a grape<br />

• By Mark Henderson<br />

A HUGE number of<br />

variables can influence<br />

the retail price of a bottle<br />

of wine, including the<br />

amount and consequent<br />

cost of viticultural and<br />

winemaker input, yield per<br />

hectare, oak usage, scarcity,<br />

demand, market position<br />

and market forces.<br />

Today’s collection of<br />

chardonnays covers the<br />

gamut of pricing from<br />

widely available value-formoney<br />

offerings through<br />

to scarce, limited-release<br />

bottlings.<br />

It’s a reminder of the<br />

variety of styles produced<br />

with this grape that can<br />

certainly offer something<br />

for everyone.<br />

charry notes dominate<br />

the palate, while the fruit<br />

it. No doubting the fruit<br />

intensity, and possibly<br />

crowd appeal, but the<br />

apricot kernel bittersweet<br />

note masks the finish for<br />

me.<br />

Peach and stonefruits flow<br />

Wednesday <strong>May</strong> <strong>27</strong> <strong>2020</strong><br />

MERCEDES-Benz has a huge<br />

range of sport utility vehicles.<br />

That is no surprise, the market<br />

is demanding cars that cater for<br />

many roles – family transport as<br />

well as practicality.<br />

The most popular SUV in the<br />

luxury car maker’s range is the<br />

GLC and, not surprisingly, it is<br />

available in a series which accounts<br />

for eight variants. There<br />

is a petrol-electric hybrid model,<br />

a plug-in EV, and those with<br />

the choice of four, six or eightcylinder<br />

engines; there’s even a<br />

two-wheel-drive model.<br />

However, most incorporate the<br />

4Matic system which sends drive<br />

to each corner.<br />

It must also be noted that the<br />

GLC is a series which incorporates<br />

coupe-type models as well<br />

as the traditional SUV.<br />

The entire GLC range has just<br />

had a bit of a refresh, there’s been<br />

a styling change, and buyers now<br />

have the choice of varying suspension<br />

types, depending on how<br />

the vehicle will be used, and the<br />

surfaces it is likely to travel on, on<br />

a daily basis.<br />

The range spans prices from<br />

$87,600 to $187,400.<br />

The vehicle this evaluation focuses<br />

on is GLC 300, a mid-range<br />

SUV which lists at $102,500 in<br />

standard form.<br />

The 300 effectively replaces<br />

the 250 from a year or two back.<br />

Put simply, the four-cylinder<br />

turbocharged petrol engine has<br />

had a power and torque increase,<br />

up from 155kW and 350Nm to<br />

190kW and 370Nm.<br />

The increase doesn’t affect the<br />

silent and smooth operation of<br />

the 2-litre, four cylinder unit. It is<br />

a high-performing engine but it<br />

does everything without making<br />

a fuss, it searches the rev band<br />

well but works fluidly through<br />

the mid-range, maximum torque<br />

arrives at 1800rpm and spreads to<br />

4000rpm, and with peak power<br />

arriving at just 5800rpm there is<br />

no drop-off in performance.<br />

A lot of that is also garnered<br />

through the seamless flow of<br />

gearing courtesy of a nine-speed<br />

automatic transmission.<br />

This engine is a powerhouse<br />

through the whole acceleration<br />

process, it will cut out a standstill<br />

to 100km/h time of 6.1sec, and<br />

will make 120km/h from 80km/h<br />

in 3.8sec. Steering wheel-mounted<br />

paddle shifters will assist the<br />

driver if he/she decides to take<br />

control over the acceleration<br />

process.<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

Many options in Mercedes-Benz GLC range<br />

MERCEDES-BENZ GLC 300: Boost in power for <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

It wouldn’t be a world-class<br />

engine unless you get the benefits<br />

of thrifty fuel usage, and that is<br />

certainly the case in the 300. It<br />

is rated by Mercedes-Benz with<br />

an 8.1-litre per 100km combined<br />

cycle average.<br />

These figures are all quite<br />

remarkable for a vehicle which<br />

weighs in a little tubby at 1804kg,<br />

but the point is that the engineering<br />

which is coming out of<br />

European factories at the moment<br />

is at the forefront of technology,<br />

and the GLC is just one example<br />

of performance and economy all<br />

rolled into one.<br />

Time was a little against me on<br />

the day I went testing and I didn’t<br />

venture as far as I would normally<br />

travel in an evaluation car. However,<br />

on the roads west heading<br />

home through Burnham and Lincoln<br />

I got a thorough understanding<br />

of the GLC’s behaviour on<br />

the seal, and I enjoyed its nimble<br />

and agile nature given that it is a<br />

mid-size SUV.<br />

Riding on huge 20in Pirelli rubber,<br />

there is positive steering feel<br />

and unyielding grip.<br />

As you would expect from<br />

Mercedes-Benz, the GLC is full<br />

of luxury appointments, it has<br />

the kit to make you feel you<br />

have bought a lot of car, and it is<br />

intensely comfortable to ride in,<br />

even for five occupants.<br />

One of the standout features<br />

is the voice recognition operating<br />

system which takes command<br />

over many of the in-cabin<br />

functions. By opening with “hey<br />

Mercedes’’ you can instruct the<br />

vehicle to do many of the adjustments<br />

you would normally do by<br />

hand. This could well be seen as a<br />

safety device allowing the driver’s<br />

hands to remain on the steering<br />

wheel and to keep concentration<br />

Safety has been at the forefront<br />

of Mercedes-Benz’s manufacturing<br />

operation for as long as I can<br />

remember, and the company’s<br />

entire range has a high ingredient<br />

of built-in-safety features. The<br />

GLC is brimming with all the<br />

electronic functions which are<br />

not far from offering autonomous<br />

operation.<br />

Some of them I could do without,<br />

but the automotive world is<br />

demanding vehicles intervene<br />

on their own accord if collisions<br />

seem imminent and Mercedes-<br />

Benz has answered that call.<br />

The GLC is just another<br />

example of what make<br />

Mercedes-Benz so desirable as<br />

a manufacturer. The company<br />

has recognised that buyers want<br />

plenty of choice and the GLC<br />

coupe and SUV options are<br />

extensive.<br />

Personally, I’d be opting for<br />

the 63 S, just the thought of that<br />

thundering V8 under the bonnet<br />

is enough to make my heart race.<br />
