projects

could lose

$10 million

• By Louis Day

MORE THAN $10 million could

be deferred from roading and

transport projects across the

south of Christchurch for at least

a year.

This comes as the city council

looks to readjust its priorities in

the face of the Covid-19 crisis

which left it with a $99 million

revenue shortfall.

It has proposed as part of its

draft Annual Plan to defer a total

of $10.6 million in funding to

various roading and transport

projects across the southern part

of the city for the current financial

year.

If approved, this would see $1

million worth of funding for the

Cashmere, Hoon Hay, Worsleys

Rds intersection deferred for at

least a year, leaving it without any

funding.

The city council will consider

reallocating funding towards any

deferred projects when it addresses

its Long Term Plan next year.

Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board chairwoman

Karolin Potter was most

concerned about the proposed

deferral to the Cashmere, Hoon

Hay, Worsleys Rds intersection.

• From page 1

“The diagnosis pathway is

convoluted, so there needs to be

an agency on the ground that can

do advocacy work.”

The trust provided referrals

to appropriate agencies and

advocated for clients to the

Ministry of Social Development,

along with personal assessments

before a diagnosis.

It also held presentations

and workshops to further

educate those accessing their

services.

Getting diagnosed by a mental

health professional was difficult

in itself; sometimes taking

two years for a child to get an

assessment which could result in

a late diagnosis.

Said Mr Stoneman: “It’s really

hard to get a diagnosis, they

[mental health] just refuse to talk

about it.

“The disability sector has been

the ages of 18 to 65.”

Although the lockdown

was difficult for some, Mr

Stoneman said the disability

community struggled in

particular due to the rapidly

changing environment.

“One of the biggest barriers is

change, especially in routines and

social isolation. Some don’t cope

well in a new environment,” he

said.

Even though Mr Stoneman’s

Asperger’s - a form of autism

- was mild, he said coping was

another story.

“It’s actually really difficult

to cope because I’m reliant on

others, but overall it’s definitely

been a learning experience,” he

said.

“I’m now an autism educator

The trust has kept him busy

over the last few months – a job

he can truly enjoy without fear of

discrimination.

“It’s a struggle to get jobs and

even harder to keep it by being

put in situations where we have

to reveal [symptoms], then face

discrimination.”

This often discouraged people

to seek employment in the first

place, contributing to a higher

number of the community on

benefits.

He encouraged more people

to get involved and support the

trust to educate themselves and

understand the importance of

inclusion.

Said Mr Stoneman: “We want

people to engage and to be

treated like normal, everyday

people. Showing more

compassion and working

field is helpful.

“There is no pulsing of

she said.

“If you had traffic

lights at the intersection

it would be much safer

and it would also help

pulse the traffic for people

exiting Hackthorne

Rd and Dyers Pass.

“For the locals in Cracroft, this

has been a long-standing issue for

them.”

The Spreydon Ward could also

see $9.6 million worth of funding

for roads and transportation infrastructure

deferred if the draft

plan is approved.

This would see $6 million taken

away from the Nor’West Arc

cycleway for at least a year, leaving

$939,340 on budget for the

project.

The South Express cycleway

could also see $1 million deferred,

which would still leave it with $2

million.

A total of $600,000 would be

cut from work to the Orbiter’s

north-west route, leaving $77,029

on budget.

A further $2 million could also

be deferred from the ward’s Annex

Rd, Birmingham Dr, Wrights

Karolin Potter

Rd route upgrade, which

would still leave $196,500

on budget for the project.

However, it is not all

bad news for the area. The

city council is proposing

to increase funding to

planned pedestrian and

cyclist safety improvements

on Dyers Pass Rd

by $700,000, leaving the

project with $1,146,386.

It is also looking to add $2.9

million towards installing more

guardrails to Dyers Pass Rd,

leaving the project with a total of

$3,845,038.

The city council was forced to

reassess its finances following

the effects of the Covid-19 crisis.

Leaving the lost income and

additional costs arising from the

pandemic unaddressed would

have driven a rates increase of

more than 21 per cent for the current

financial year.

The city council is now

proposing an average rates rise of

3.5 per cent after making cuts to

certain areas of its budget.

It is currently processing

submissions made to its draft

Annual Plan before councillors

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

LETS “BOOT” the “SCOOT”

Impacted, infected, inflamed, foul smelling

Anal Glands. A slightly weird topic to write

about but becoming a very common

complaint in many dogs and even cats.

This week alone I have removed anal sacs

bilaterally in 2 dogs and 1 cat.

Why do cats and dogs have them? They

are purely scent making glands , situated

between the layers of muscle that make

up the rectum. When all is working right

they are naturally expressed each time your

pet poops! This is another way a pet can

mark their territory, leaving a smell signal,

therefore an important part of dog to dog

communication.

These glands are still not fully understood.

Why some dogs never need them expressed

and some dogs and owners are miserable

because of these glands, sparks some

debate…

Clinically, cats scoot less often than dogs and

are more likely to develop traumatic hair loss

of the tail base or caudal abdomen. Other

signs seen in cats and dogs may include

licking/biting at the anal, perianal, and/or tail

region; matting of perianal hair; reluctance

to sit; reluctance to defecate; straining;

constipation; anal discharge; redness and

swelling of anal area, vocalising, lethargy and

a terrible foul smell.

The most common anal gland

problems are:

1. Impaction - the anal sacs fail to empty,

resulting in thicker secretions, that cause

swelling and pain in the anal sacs

2. Sacculitis- this is inflammation or

infection within the anal sac which can

lead to an abscess or fistula.

3. Hypersecretion whereby dogs express

their anal glands often often due to a

fright or anxiety.

4. An abscessed anal sac

5. Benign or malignant tumours associated

with the anal sacs

What increases your dogs chances of anal gland

issues:

1. Chronic skin infections with bacteria or yeast

2. Skin mite infestation

3. Food allergies

4. Hypothyroidism

5. Obesity

6. Environmental allergies ( Atopy)

7. Diarrhoea and Inflammatory Bowel disease

8. Frequent anal gland expressions , which may

happen at groomers. This can cause inflammation

of the anal gland, scarring and narrowing of the

anal gland duct.

Chase eagerly awaiting his surgery

with Michele.

Dani and Chase enjoying a walk

Typically I will squeeze the glands and assess the size

and shape and material extruded. If I think allergies (

either food or environmental) are a contributing factor,

I discuss hypoallergenic diets, fiber added, fish oils as

a natural skin anti-inflammatory and possible a steroid

trial. Antibiotics is usually only prescribed if there is

blood in the secretion or the sac has abscessed.

Sometimes with abscessed anal glands I will

recommend flushing and packing the anal sacs with

antibiotic lotion under sedative. This can be effective

at controlling an abscessed gland and requires no

further treatment.

If the anal gland disease is long standing and

persistent and causing the patient

discomfort, I will recommend bilateral

anal sacculectomy. When done

correctly, this procedure is highly

effective with very few complications.

A good discussion needs to be had

with the owner so they are clear of

possible complications. In the “end”

this procedure is often the only way to

completely resolve the problem and give

a patient its quality of life back.

Chase, a 3 year old Beagle, owned by

one of our vet nurses and her partner,

was presented for anal gland removal

as he was constantly getting his glands

go in their home. The anal sacs were

not abscessed nor impacted but its very

hard to live with the smell of anal glands

on your furniture, carpet or bedding.

The surgery is delicate and care needs

to be taken working around the anal

area to ensure you don’t damage any

nerves risking the complication or fecal

incontinence. Like with anything, the

more you do the better you get at it and

at the end of the day your dog can easily

live without his glands, BUT can you live

that smell.

​There’s something in the water for Katherine

• By Bea Gooding

KATHERINE RUTTER has

achieved a rare feat by having her

research published in a national

scientific publication.

The 16-year-old’s paper was

published in the NZ Journal of

Hydrology in a bid to improve

the quality of the city’s drinking

water.

With the guidance of her

mother, Helen, she studied

nitrate trends in groundwater

across Canterbury and felt

proud that their findings

were presented to local water

committees and Environment

Canterbury.

“I was definitely proud. For

me, it was never something I

thought I’d do,” she said.”

“It started out as a science day

project in year 10, looking at

levels of nitrate, whether it’s high

or low in some areas or what

might be the cause of it.”

Her mother is a senior

hydrogeologist, focusing on

the region’s groundwater, the

movement of it and its minerals.

It was her that entrusted

Katherine to take the research

further, working together to

develop it into a paper.

Nitrate-nitrogen concentration

data were obtained from ECan

for the science fair project,

which identified anomalies

and patterns such as potential

sources of contamination.

Results confirmed the

influence of the Waimakariri

River recharge and limitation of

land-use intensification in the

Christchurch-West Melton zone

kept nitrate concentrations low.

Concentrations were higher

within the Selwyn-Waimakariri

zone, in some cases due to land

use activities or local soil and

water conditions.

“I’m interested in it because of

the relevant implications it has

for our society and where we are

in NZ,” said Katherine.

About three-quarters of

Christchurch’s groundwater

comes from the Waimakariri

River, reaching a zone from which

the city takes its drinking water.

“Too many nitrates can have

adverse effects on our health,

especially in babies,” said the

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School pupil.

“When it’s too high, they

don’t have enough oxygen

going through their body and

because they’re so young it can

be severe.”

High concentrations in

drinking water may prevent

blood from delivering oxygen

within the body effectively,

in some cases causing infant

methemoglobinemia – or “Blue

baby syndrome.”

She was well on her way towards

a career in science, but instead

of hydrology, she wanted to

pursue astronomy – particularly

astrophysics, cosmology and

celestial mechanics.

Her advice to other young

people with the same drive was

simple.

“Look at something that

interests you and find a mentor.

Do what you like otherwise

it will start to feel like it’s

something you have to do.”

HOME & HEATING

What makes a great

Heat Transfer System?

There are a number of Heat Transfer

systems on the market. Smooth-Air

ventilation specialists offer a range of

HTU Heat Transfer Units with carefully

selected components to optimise the

system:

They use insulated duct to transfer

the heated air with as little heat loss as

possible. The fan moves sufficient air

for the distance and number of rooms,

without being noisy. The diffusers send

the heat to the floor, not to skim the

across the ceilings. All components are

good quality - designed to operate for

years without problems.

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range

of options: One to four rooms, with or

without thermostat and with a choice

of grilles and diffusers. HTUs improve

energy efficiency in your house, as you are

using excess heat. They have low power

consumption - only 80watts for the three

room system. Circulating air through the

house also reduces the risk of damp.

You can also choose the HTU version

with downjet diffusers, which throw the

warm air downwards to the floor. These

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to

regulate which room receives the most

warm air.

An average size living room requires 2-4

kw of heating, yet appliances such as log

burners generate heat in the region of 10

-20kw. This leaves an excess of 8 -16kw of

heat which sits at high level in the heated

room, usually above door level.

Heat transfer units work best where very

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate

warm air around the room with no

layering, are not suitable as a heat source

by themselves. However, if you have both

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer

systems with thermostat can work very

well: The heat pump stops operating once

the heat from the fire has heated the room,

and the heat transfer kicks in above this

point, once there is a layer of hot air at the

ceiling.

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800

SMOOTH (0800 766 684) to ask how

they can help you with your Heat

Transfer, as well as any other ventilation

requirements.

their determination to stay connected”.

Now that people can be back in the

building however, there is a real sense

of the importance of face to face

interactions: for learning, for depth of

communication and for well-being.

There is an exciting programme

of events and courses on offer,

from: Looking and Understanding

Polynesian Art to Understanding the

Christchurch

School of Music

The Chinese philosopher, Confucius

said long ago “Music produces a kind of

pleasure which human nature cannot do

without”. Playing an instrument has many

benefits and can bring a great deal of joy

to the performer and the listener. Studies

continue to prove that participating in

musical activities, has many positive

effects on the brain as well as a student’s

health and well-being. Some of the proven

benefits include:

1) Increased memory capacity

2) Improved language ability

3) Increased empathy

4) Improved self-confidence

5) Increased attention span and focus

6) Self-discipline

The Christchurch School of Music is

a family-oriented community aimed at

providing quality music education in and

around Christchurch.

On a Saturday morning the whole family

can find something to

suit. Preschool and

junior school children

can start their musical

journey by joining

in our “Take Off

with Music” classes

while older children and adults may

opt for lessons on a specific instrument

(including voice). Those who already play

are welcome to join in one of the great

ensembles which all take part in regular

concerts.

Age is no limit - our Late Starters

programme provides the opportunity for

adults to learn an instrument and join an

ensemble with other like-minded adults.

If Saturday isn’t an option, CSM also

offers a range of weekday opportunities

for learning and playing music and, if

affordability is an issue, CSM may be

able to offer a discount through funding

provided by the Rata Foundation and

CERT.

Term 3 starts on Saturday 25 July and

we can take new enrolments in most

instruments and ensembles.

Please contact us via our website www.

csm.org.nz and let us start you on a

musical journey that will bring pleasure

for a lifetime.

Natural vision support

Bilberry and marigold are two natural

herbs with a long history in supporting the

health of the eyes and good vision.

During World War 2, British bomber

pilots reported improved night vision after a

nightly dose of bilberry jam before missions.

Subsequent research suggested that bilberry

extract may improve microcirculation

within the eye, with the most significant

effects found in people with impaired visual

acuity.

Bilberries contain powerful antioxidant

compounds called anthocyanins that may

play a major role in supporting eye health

and even in improving the vision.

One of the main causes of degenerative

eye diseases such as macular degeneration

relates to an increase in free radical activity

that damages healthy cells in the eyes. The

anthocyanins from the bilberry help reduce

this free radical damage that could lead to

serious eye disease.

Bilberry has also been shown to improve

oxygen and blood delivery to the eye,

important factors for maintaining eye

health.

Bilberry is commonly used to support

night vision and alleviate tired eyes,

eye strain and dry eyes. It is considered

beneficial for most eye conditions, including

cataracts, disorders of the retina, and to

prevent eye problems, especially in people

with diabetes or high blood pressure.

The retina is a thin layer of tissue at

the back of the eye that transforms light

information into neural signals for the brain

to see images.

The retina is very fragile and can be

damaged by bright light, especially blue

light. Computer monitors, cellphones,

electronic notebooks, televisions, LED and

fluorescent lighting all emit significant

amounts of blue light and may have long

term effects on the retina.

The carotenoid lutein, as found in marigold

flowers, is concentrated in the macula, the

functional centre of the retina. The macula

gives us the ability to see detail and provides

the best colour vision.

Lutein appears to be vital in protecting the

macula from blue light damage. Multiple

studies have shown that people with eye

diseases have much lower levels of lutein

in their eyes and that increasing intake

of lutein can reduce the risk of macular

degeneration, the leading cause of blindness

in older people.

One study of people in India, where

cataracts are a common problem found that

those with the highest blood levels of lutein

had a 41% lower risk of developing cataracts,

compared to those with the lowest levels.

“Marshall’s Herbal Vision Manager”

provides nutritional support to your eyes,

with each capsule containing a high dose

extract of bilberry fruit and marigold

flowers. This natural herbal formula is ideal

to support keeping your eyes healthy.

the natural health advisers at Marshall’s
