Addressing the needs of disabled

• By Bea Gooding

LIVING WITH an invisible

disability produces its own

challenges, but it’s often an

uphill battle when it comes to

being treated as equal to others.

With Covid-19 throwing

more Cantabrians into financial

uncertainty, getting a job

and retaining it while having

disabilities such as Asperger’s

syndrome, attention deficit

hyperactivity disorder and

autism turns the experience

into an ordeal.

Roading

projects

could lose

$3 million

• By Louis Day

MORE THAN $3 million could

be deferred from roading and

transport projects across the east

for the next 12 months.

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 $3.09 million in funding to

various roading and transport

projects across the east of the city

for the current financial year.

If approved, the Linwood

Ward would see $1.7 million

worth of funding for roads and

transportation infrastructure

deferred.

This would result in a reduction

of $400,000 in funding towards

work on Griffiths Ave, leaving

$470,000 on budget for the project

for the year. Another $1.3 million

oul be deferred from the Shag

Rock cycleway project, leaving

$200,000 on budget.

The council will consider

reallocating funding towards

any deferred projects when it

addresses its Long Term Plan

next year.

Art on show at pop-up exhibition

A POP-UP art exhibition and

daily programme of art classes

at The Palms has added colour

to the school holidays.

The exhibition is spearheaded

by Brighton Art Gallery and will

include a variety of works by

gallery artists along with works

from other local artists and

groups.

“It has resulted in a true showcase

of art from the east side of

Christchurch,” said Brighton

Gallery committee member and

artist Karen Phelps.

Ms Phelps said that a pop-up

exhibition is less formal than a

gallery or museum and allows

for a more immersive experience

for the visitor where they can

interact with local artists.

“We have so many talented

artists living in the east side

of Christchurch and it’s great

for them to have this vehicle to

showcase their works on a larger

scale to the public, and to open

up conversation and discussion

about art.

“East Christchurch is really

talking off with the new hot

pools, He Puna Taimoana,

proving very popular and more

people discovering the gallery

and the great local shops and

cafes we have on this side of the

city.”

CRAFTY: A pop-up art exhibition has enlivened the school holidays, which showcases artists in

eastern Christchurch. ​

Artworks exhibited in

the exhibition, including

painting, drawing, prints and

sculptures, will be for sale

giving people the opportunity to

purchase a unique piece of local

art.

It will also include a daily

programme of art classes led by

local artists Tony Scanlan and

Maree Cole.

Ms Phelps hopes it will

encourage more Christchurch

residents to explore their

creative side.

The Brighton Gallery is open

all year and holds regular

exhibitions with local art for sale

and art classes.

The exhibition will run until

next Sunday.

Hot pools

prove

popular

THE CITY’S new beachside hot

pools complex chalked up a sellout

first month as it headed for

school holidays.

“The first month could not

have gone any better,” He Puna

Taimoana manager Merryn

Skipper said.

“We have had more than 7000

guests visit the complex since it

opened and the feedback we’ve

had has been overwhelmingly

positive.”

Repeat visits were becoming the

norm, and people were buying

monthly or annual memberships.

The pools were attracting

people to the seaside suburb.

“Some of our guests have not

been to New Brighton for a long

time; now they’re coming and

pairing a visit to the hot pools

with a visit to the library, the

playground or eating locally,” Ms

Skipper said.

“They’re rediscovering what

New Brighton has to offer.”

Bookings were expected to

remain strong, and capacity for the

day sessions was being increased

because of it, Ms Skipper said.

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.

www.mcmasterheap.co.nz

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.

• 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

Development, along with

personal assessments before

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,

“The disability sector has

been ignored, we don’t get

our voices heard and we’re

often under-represented.

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

“It’s actually really

difficult to cope because

I’m reliant on others, but

Tik tok strikes again

The New Brighton heritage

Clock Tower damaged in

the 2010-2011 earthquakes

will finally reopen this

month according to Council

contractors. This is good news

for the community who have

waited for nearly a decade for

these repairs to be undertaken

and which reflects a positive

revitalisation of amenities on

the foreshore.

The weathered looks of the

clocktower reflects its long

and somewhat bitter family

history. The Clock Tower is a

piece of New Brighton and was

one of three gifts from Richard

Green (a retired builder) to the

citizens of Christchurch.

It was commonly believed

that Green had fallen out with

his family and that he was

hell-bent on cutting them out

of his estate by divesting himself of his

wealth and paying for the creation of

statues and clock towers. Some of Green’s

family were in poor financial states,

including a son who had been wounded

in World War I.

Green stated that the clock towers were

in memory of his father, Edmund Green

(1829-99) who was involved with the

introduction of the telegraph into New

Zealand.

There were rumours that family

members would disrupt – even bomb –

the ceremonies where foundation stones

were laid. Certainly, members of the

family wrote letters about Green to the

newspapers defaming him and accusing

Green of all sorts of debauchery.

On 14 December 1934, Irene Leaver,

daughter of E. A. M. Leaver (mayor

of New Brighton 1931-1935), laid the

foundation stone of the New Brighton

clock tower.

This repair of the clocktower will

be celebrated by the New Brighton

community. Yet like other national

memorials and statues, it hides a more

complicated past behind its new and

unblemished exterior.

Pull No Punches

Memoir of a political survivor

by Judith Collins

The most anticipated political memoir of the year.

A frank account from National MP Judith Collins of the highs and lows of

a political life. From her humble beginnings as the youngest daughter of

Labour-voting farming parents, Judith Collins has carved a path to almost

the very top of New Zealand politics. Collins grew up in rural Walton,

Waikato, on a dairy farm. At the age of 10 she entered politics, running

for class president. She won.

After a successful career as a lawyer, Collins became the MP for Papakura

in 2002, alongside fellow new recruit John Key. When Key and National

won office in 2008, Collins became the Minister for Police, Corrections

and Veterans. Funny, forthright and fearless, Collins reveals what it is like

to survive-and thrive-for two decades as a senior female politician

Merchant, Miner, Mandarin

the life and times of the remarkable Choie sew hoy

one of dunedin’s most prominent entrepreneurs.

by Jenny sew hoy agnew and trevor Gordon agnew

In 1869, a businessman from China’s Guangdong Province first set foot

on New Zealand soil at Port Chalmers. It was the beginning of an illustrious

career that would change the shape of commerce and industry in Otago

and Southland. ‘Merchant, Miner, Mandarin’ depicts the fascinating life of

Choie Sew Hoy – from his early days in China before emigrating to

Australia and then NZ, to his death in 1901 as one of Dunedin’s most

prominent entrepreneurs. Richly illustrated and deeply researched,

‘Merchant, Miner, Mandarin’ is both the compelling biography of one of the

most distinguished figures of New Zealand business and an

intriguing account of late 19th-century society, industry and race relations.

Weed

a new Zealand story

by James Borrowdale

A fascinating journey through the life and times of cannabis in New

Zealand. Pot, Mary Jane, dope, skunk, grass, hash, green, hooch, herb,

ganja, reefer. New Zealand loves weed. It’s the most popular illegal drug

in our country and third most popular drug overall, behind alcohol and

tobacco, yet it also represents a troubled relationship. In Weed, awardwinning

journalist James Borrowdale dives in deep to understand that

relationship, meeting a fascinating cross-section of New Zealand along

the way – a nineteenth-century nun who allegedly grew pot, a bystander

to the Mr Asia syndicate, a convicted heroin dealer turned criminologist,

people both using and offering the drug for medicinal relief, politicians

and law-makers old and new. Fusing insightful, personal stories with

analysis and historical research, Weed lays out the facts as they are –

about an issue that can no longer be ignored.

Not That I’d Kiss a Girl

by lil o’Brien

Lil O’Brien accidentally outed herself to her parents at the age of nineteen

when they overheard her talking to a friend about liking girls. Half an hour

later she found herself on the side of the road, with instructions to come

back and pick up her suitcase the next day. What follows is a heartbreaking

yet hugely funny story of a young Kiwi girl - the deputy head girl from a

posh private school - coming to grips with her sexuality in the face of stark

disapproval from her parents. Bit by bit, Lil finds the inner strength to pull

herself into an entirely new world. Along the way she’s called out for looking

too straight in a gay bar, tries to break in to the lesbian in-crowd and figures

out how to send her internet lover back to America…and explores how the

hell to have sex with a girl and dates four women at once - unsuccessfully.

Lil’s story is an insightful and honest look at how you figure out whether

you’re gay, bi or whatever - and deal with what comes next.

Three world champions

rode at Aranui Speedway

CHRISTCHURCH

Speedway, more

commonly known as

Aranui Speedway, has a

distinguished history, in

spite of its short run of just

10 years.

Perhaps Aranui

Speedway’s biggest

legacy is that three world

speedway champions

emerged from the young

motorbike racers at this

one venue.

Ronnie Moore, who

debuted at Aranui as a

15-year-old, went on to win

the world championship

title twice and Barry Briggs

won the title four times.

Ivan Mauger began

his competitive career

at Aranui in 1955 and,

by 1979, long after the

Christchurch speedway

had closed, had won the

world title six times – an as

yet unbeaten record.

In 2000, after a poll from

34 speedway magazines

around the world, he was

named the speedway Man

of the Millennium – the

top speedway rider of the

20th-century.

To have produced three

School is now. This site

was still in sand hills, and

broom and wild pine.

Construction started in

1948.

Earthmoving machines

were used to create a cinder

track and an embankment.

The track later earned the

reputation among overseas

competitors as being one of

the best in the world.

The speedway was

officially opened by Mayor

EH Andrews on January

29, 1949, before a crowd of

more than 10,000 people.

In the late 1940s and

early 1950s, the speedway

was one of Christchurch’s

biggest summer attractions

and some residents

adjoining the area (now

Rowan Ave) complained of

the heavy traffic and noise

on speedway nights.

As well as holding races

between North and South

Island teams, the Aranui

Speedway hosted the New

Zealand Championships

and overseas teams and

racers. Other forms

of racing were also

introduced – sidecars,

midget racers and ultramidget

cars (for children’s

races).

Stock cars proved a

popular attraction between

1954-56 but eventually had

to be dropped because of

the expense in repairing

damage to trackside fences.

A combination of rising

costs, declining patronage

and increasing pressure

from new housing in the

Aranui area led to the

closure of the speedway in

1959.

Whether you are wanting to learn

something new to improve your fitness,

to challenge yourself, for relaxation, or to

master a new skill Papanui High School

offers plenty of choices for everyone in

their Term 3 Adult Education Programme.

We offer a wide range of classes such as

cooking, crafts, languages, fitness and

photography etc . Our tutors are wellqualified

in their chosen field and wanting

to help make your learning experience

rewarding. We are confident regardless of

your age, or interest, you will find a course

that will give you the opportunity to

extend your personal skills and knowledge

and meet some new people in an enjoyable

friendly environment.

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Long legs for nervous bird

Tanya

of the Avon-

Heathcote

Estuary

Ihutai Trust, a non-profit

organisation formed in

2002 to protect one of New

Zealand’s most important

coastal wetlands. Each

bird found in the estuary.

Her column aims to raise

the understanding of the

values and uniqueness of

the area.

IT’S HARD to miss the

skinny, black and white

pied stilt on their long,

bright orange legs.

They are often seen in

small groups but they also

quite like the company of

the godwit and the oystercatchers

and are often seen

roosting alongside those

birds.

They are extremely shy

and nervous birds and

fair distance, fly away.

They like to eat insects

and worms while wading in

shallow water or swampy

Linwood paddocks

utilising their long legs to

do so.

Nests are near water or

even surrounded by water

and are made by piling

up mud a few centimetres

high.

When they cannot see

you nearby the nest (use

binoculars and patience

at a safe distance) you may

be lucky enough to see

adults with the cutest

little fluffy grey chicks,

on their comparatively

ridiculously long legs,

learning how to catch food

themselves.

How can we help these,

and all other birds? Keep

dogs on the lead when

walking near the estuary

and pick up litter.

Learning returns

to the heart of

the city

The WEA is delighted to be opening

its doors again for the return of adult

and community educational classes

this coming term. During lockdown a

shortened programme of 20 online items

was offered free of charge. The 300+

registrations showed there was a real

desire to keep learning through the

crisis. Wendy Butcher from the CWEA

Council (governance team) said that

“for some of our members with limited

computer knowledge, learning online

was a huge challenge, we commend

those in our community who embraced

technologies like Zoom and showed

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

Treaty of Waitangi in 2020. To find

out more visit cwea.org.nz or pick

up a programme from 59 Gloucester

street in the central city.

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.

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.

Warmer Kiwi

Kiwi Homes grants to make Kiwi homes

When your brand includes the top Harcourts

office out of 900 around the world in addition

to the top franchise in New Zealand for

income per sales consultant, it’s clear that

you’ve got an extraordinary team.

So for these consultants to earn the position of one of the top ten real estate sales

consultants at Harcourts gold is truly a remarkable achievement.

They are phenomenally good at what they do; skilled, highly trained and dedicated

to delivering exceptional results for property owners. I am extremely proud to work

with these real estate professionals.
