Harness

figure

banned

over drugs

• By Louis Day

A RISING harness racing

star has been banned for six

months for supplying drugs to

other drivers and refusing to

supply information to racing

investigators about the drug deal.

Canterbury-based trainer and

driver Matthew Jason Anderson,

27, has been disqualified by the

statutory racing body, Judicial

Control Authority, after a hearing

last month.

The JCA released its decision to

The Star yesterday.

Anderson was charged with

supplying two “prominent

harness reinsmen” with Class

B drug ecstasy and refusing

to provide investigators from

the Racing Integrity Unit with

information about his supply

and possession of a prohibited

substance.

The names of the two

drivers are suppressed because

of ongoing criminal court

proceedings.

Anderson was arrested by

police in 2018 during Operation

Inca, an undercover operation

into race-fixing and drug-related

matters within the harness racing

industry.

Huge response to call for death penalty

MOSQUE shooting survivor

Mohammad Alayan’s call for the

death penalty to be reintroduced

in New Zealand has prompted

a huge response from The Star

Dr Alayan was at the Al Noor

Mosque on March 15, 2019,

when he was shot in the head

and chest. His son, Atta, was

killed.

Calendar Girls launches

first Playboy-style mansion

• By Kurt Bayer

NEW ZEALAND’S first Playboystyle

mansion is about to be

unveiled.

Voting has begun to select 10

strippers to live in a sprawling,

multi-million dollar Christchurch

mansion for 12 weeks

and have their every move recorded

by 18 high-tech cameras

and streamed live online.

Cameras will be placed inside

bedrooms, changing areas,

lounges, movie room and bar, as

well as around a heated swimming

pool and spa.

CG’s Mansion has been

launched by Calendar Girls,

which has R18 strip joints in

Christchurch, Wellington and in

Auckland’s Karangahape Rd.

It’s understood that if the mansion

is successful, they will look

to replicate the idea in Wellington

and Auckland.

It has been described as a

scantily-clad, adults-only Big

Brother house.

“Nobody else has ever tried

doing anything like this before

in New Zealand,” says Calendar

Girls’ “house mum” Courtney.

“You can get sick of Netflix

pretty quick – this will be something

completely different.”

The 10 strippers will live inside

the luxury two-storey property for

free and be waited on by a chef,

bartender, and house cleaner.

They will also host Sunday

pool parties with live DJs where

Said Dr Alayan:

“Since March 15, my

heart is yearning for

restoration of justice

to the victims of the

heinous massacre, and

a call for the death

penalty for the brutal

and conscienceless

criminal.

“Crimes like the one

punters can bid at online auctions

to attend. They’ll also

have cocktail nights and formal

dining.

The house will be livestreaming

24/7 but Courtney thinks

they’ll be taking Mondays off.

After 12 weeks, the highest

earner will take home a MG 3

car.

“From pool parties to pillow

fights … what could possibly go

wrong?” CGs says online, saying

it will give “10 gorgeous girls the

chance to live their best life in an

actual mansion.”

Said Courtney: “Lingerie is the

maximum amount of clothing.

It’s like the Big Brother house but

we’ve been joking we should call

it Little Sister.”

Mohammad

Alayan

committed on March

15, are so heinous and

inherently wrong that

they demand the death

penalty to deter such

heinous crimes in the

future, and to keep the

society safe.

The death penalty

is a must if justice is to

prevail.’’

Calendar Girls launched CGs

Live during the lockdown after

their clubs were forced to close

with dancers giving online shows

from home.

But CGs bosses found that

many customers wanted to be

more than pure voyeurs and

sought interaction with the

dancers to “find out more about

them”.

The online move proved so

successful, the adult entertainment

company began redesigning

its site.

“We apologise to everyone

we annoyed with the disruption

while we were redesigning the

site and that’s why we’re giving

a $100 voucher to every current

subscriber,” Courtney said.

Dr Alayan said he understood

New Zealand’s law did not have

capital punishment, so in lieu

of death, he would call on the

judge to sentence the terrorist

to life-long imprisonment

without parole, and immediate

deportation to Australia, where

he was from.

going behind a paywall costing

There will be an option for viewers

to pay for one-on-one video

Online voting is ongoing to the

in brief

University to replace

coal boiler

Canterbury University will

replace its coal boiler with an

eco-friendly option by March

2022, which will reduce its

carbon emissions by 9000

tonnes per year. It is one of six

projects across the country

getting a share of $12.7 million

from the Crown’s clean

powered public service fund.

UC will use $9.36m of its own

money on top of the $6.34m

of Government funding to

replace its current boiler with

a biomass boiler. UC has been

using 4300 to 6270 tonnes

of coal annually to heat its

campus.

Cash for Canty fire

station upgrades

The Government has

announced a $23.8m

cash boost for fire station

improvements across

Canterbury, including $12m

to build a new fit-for-purpose

Christchurch City Fire Station

on its old site in Kilmore St. It

is part of a $57.5m project for

rebuilds and upgrades across

the country. Around $3m

has been approved to rebuild

Sumner Fire Station, which

was also significantly damaged

during the Christchurch

earthquakes.

Mediation under way

over donations

Muslim groups are in

mediation to break an impasse

holding up the distribution

of $2 million donated to

Christchurch victims of the

March 15, 2019, mosque

shooting. Factions within

the Federation of Muslim

Associations have been in a

dispute since earlier this year.

A High Court hearing has

been scheduled and in the

meantime, a panel of eminent

Muslim have convened in

Wellington to mediate and

avoid court action. Parties say

the negotiations have gone well

and a resolution is likely. If an

agreement can be reached, the

court will be able to unfreeze

the federation’s bank accounts.

‘Chaos’ as deadly fire destroys house

• From page 1

The description of the page

reads: “Your donations will help

the family of Brayden and Arianna

cover funeral costs and help them

get back on their feet without

the financial burden that will

accompany this horrific loss.”

The father and four children

were the only occupants of the

house when fire broke out.

At a press conference

yesterday, Fire and Emergency

NZ assistant area commander

Mike Bowden said Brayden was

rescued from the

burning house but

he died at the scene

shortly after.

Mr Bowden

described

the bedroom

Arianna was in as

“unsurvivable” and

said the fire could

have taken just three minutes to

spread.

He said the house had smoke

alarms, which helped the father

and two other children escape.

A neighbour, whose house backs

onto the damaged property, said he

heard screams and the crackle of

flames at 10.30pm.

He quickly rushed out of bed

and grabbed his garden hose,

pointing it towards the burning

house.

The man said he saw the fire

crew carry a young boy out of the

burning house last night.

Two others in the home when

the fire broke out were taken to

hospital for treatment.

Fire investigator Wayne

Hamilton was at the scene on

Wednesday to determine the cause

of the fire. He said the investigation

will continue until Friday.

Neighbour Eddie Rodden

described the fire as “chaos, really”.

He said he woke to noise and

the smell of smoke, and he looked

outside to see two ambulances

and police.

Three fire crews arrived to

find the single-storey home well

involved.

Another Vivian St resident,

who wanted to remain

anonymous, captured footage of

the fire, which can be viewed on

StarNews.co.nz and said he feared

for his own safety.

He was one of the first people

to phone 111 and said “there was

really a stress and a panic.”

Thwarting social media aim of

new police drink driving tactic

• By Matt Slaughter

POLICE ARE using new tactics

to catch drink drivers in a bid to

thwart social media sites warning

them where checkpoints are.

One or two patrol cars are now

being put into in high risk drink

driving areas instead of the usual

highly visible booze buses. They

set up on the side of the road

with a sign telling vehicles to pull

over where the driver is tested.

Inspector Greg Cottam said

a key reason for the micro

checkpoints is because Facebook

groups like Christchurch Police

Check Points are warning

motorists where booze buses are.

The Facebook page is not a

police site.

“We’re always changing our

techniques. Obviously, with

social media, it gets around

where the checkpoints are,” said

Inspector Cottam.

He said the strategy was

proving successful.

“But unfortunately, we’re still

catching people who have been

drink driving but it hasn’t been

as high as it could be, which is a

positive thing.”

Police launched an antidrink

driving campaign at the

start of this month. In the first

week 3474 drivers were breathtested

at police checkpoints

in Canterbury. Nineteen were

over the breath alcohol limit of

250mcg/l limit.

Bigger police checkpoints are

still taking place but the addition

of micro checkpoints is part of a

police effort to stop drink drivers

from avoiding them.

Inspector Cottam said they are

significantly less time consuming

to set up and require far fewer

police resources than booze

buses.

The booze buses are set up

with the full evidential breath

testing machine. We now have

hand-held devices where we

can do the full process on the

roadside and get that evidential

reading rather than needing to

go back to a police station,

so that all helps at the micro

checkpoints.”

CLAMPDOWN: Micro

checkpoints are being

trialled in Canterbury to

catch motorists trying to

avoid breath tests by viewing

Facebook groups like

Christchurch Police Check

Points.

Defence lawyers fight to keep evidence

• From page 1

He pleaded guilty to three

charges relating to the possession

and supply of ecstasy in the

district court in December the

following year. Judge Raoul

Neave discharged Anderson

without conviction.

Anderson was then charged

by the RIU which led to his JCA

appearance and ban.

He denied both charges at the

JCA hearing.

Anderson’s ban comes as

lawyers acting for a number of

harness racing figures fight to

keep evidence gathered by the

police during Operation Inca

from the RIU – the industry’s

investigative unit.

The RIU is seeking the

evidence so it can determine

whether to prosecute individuals

facing a number of criminal

charges. They would then go

before the JCA and potentially

face bans.

Widespread court suppression

orders on the evidence are in

place.

The Anderson disqualification

also comes only a week after

prominent Canterbury trainer

and driver Nigel McGrath

was banned for eight years

after pleading guilty to three

serious racing offences. They

were unrelated to Anderson’s

offending.

McGrath was charged with

attempting to administer a

prohibited substance to a horse,

refusing to make a statement

on the matter, and obstructing

racecourse investigators.

The charges arose after the

RIU raided McGrath’s West

Melton property in March, hours

before two of his horses - Steel

The Show and Could Nine - were

due to race at Addington.

The charges for Anderson

arose after the RIU was supplied

with the summary of facts

presented to the district court

and the probation report that

had been prepared by the

Department of Corrections for

his sentencing.

This springboarded an

investigation from the RIU

into Anderson which found he

after they had raced in a meeting

in Winton and the day before

they were set to race in Waimate.

Counsel for Anderson, Allister

Davis highlighted there was

no evidence the individuals

supplied with the drugs had

actually ingested it.

The JCA ruled while there was

no definitive proof the drugs

were taken, Anderson still gave

rise to a situation which could

have led to the drivers being

impaired or compromised when

driving in Waimate less than 24

hours after the deal took place.

Anderson was also interviewed

by the RIU in January.

RIU manager of integrity

assurance Neil Grimstone,

who conducted the interview

alongside racing inspector

Simon Irving, told the JCA

Anderson would reply with no

comment when asked about

his drug dealing or who he had

supplied drugs to.

Mr Davis said during the

interview if Anderson answered

the questions he would be in

breach of the suppression order.

Transcripts of the interview

show Anderson even avoid answering

questions about his own

drug use.

Mr Grimstone asks him: “In

your probation report it talks

about you using Ecstasy whilst

trying to obtain the junior apprentice

of the year on a number

of occasions. Is that correct?”

To which Anderson responds

“No comment.”

Mr Grimstone continues:

“And that you’d obtained your

MDMA through an associate

and that it was the only way you

would be able to function at the

time and create some form of

normality, is that correct?”

Mr Anderson again responds

with “no comment.”

Mr Irving continues to probe:

“If I was to direct you to submit

to a drug test, how would you

go?”

Anderson replies with “pass”

and gives the same answer when

asked how he would fair if he

was to submit a hair sample that

could date back to a year.

The interview was terminated

after Mr Grimstone conceded

he and Mr Irving were “getting

Fulton Hogan appeals conditions

• By Devon Bolger

FULTON HOGAN is making

a bid to change the conditions

under which it must operate

its controversial quarry near

Templeton.

The roading giant was given

resource consent in April to

build a 170ha quarry close to

State Highway 1 between Templeton

and Weedons.

Residents living near the site

were unsuccessful in a bid to

stop the consent

being granted.

Now Fulton

Hogan is appealing

conditions

imposed

which, if successful,

could

Simon

Moore

see less monitoring

of dust,

work able to be

carried out at night and on Sundays

and heavy trucks be able to

use roads in the area which are

not part of the resource consent.

Nearby resident Simon Moore

said he was “disgusted” with

Fulton Hogan’s appeal.

The dust has always been one

of the top issues for us. A condition

being appealed calls for

four regulatory certified PM10

monitors and Fulton Hogan

want just one permanent one.

I am speechless, to be honest.

We didn’t even think four was

enough,” he said.

One of the resource consent

conditions was the ongoing

monitoring for respirable crystalline

silica.

Said Mr Moore: “In Canterbury,

the concentration is worse

due to the nature of the rocks we

have, greywacke. I think it is our

next asbestos issue. It can cause

lung disease, silicosis it’s called.

“From what I have read and

seen, it is our next issue for residents

and workers.”

One of the 15 conditions

Fulton Hogan is appealing is

the requirement to design and

implement a 12-month respirable

crystalline silica monitoring

programme and prepare a report

on the results within one month

of its completion.

Fulton Hogan wants a two,

four-month monitoring campaigns

instead.

The company says the

financial impact of the

conditions is unnecessarily

onerous when considered in

light of the low potential for RCS

impacts, according to expert

evidence.

Fulton Hogan South Island

general manager Craig Stewart

did not answer specific questions

put to him by The Star about the

appeal.

In a statement he said: “Fulton

Hogan’s goal for the quarry

remains to be a showcase for

other quarry operations in New

Zealand, and will lead the way

in terms of best practice and

environmental sustainability.

“We are actively and constructively

engaged in the

Environment Court process

and recognise that determines

the outcome from this stage of

the Resource Management Act

process.”

The resource consent was

granted in April by a panel of

five commissioners appointed by

Environment Canterbury and

the Selwyn District Council.

Weedons resident Stephen

Bain has lodged an appeal in the

Environment Court to overturn

the commissioners’ decision.

“I think it was a strategic move

that they have made because of

my appeal. I don’t think they

were going to do it until they

saw other people were appealing,”

said Mr Bain.

Craig

Stewart

Stephen

Bain

The approval of the quarry –

which granted consent for 35

years – imposed a number of

conditions, including setting up

a dust management plan, truck

movements limited to 1200 a

day and no work can take place

at night during the quarry’s first

five years.

The city council has also became

involved.

It decided to become a party

to proceedings on behalf of the

Hornby-Halswell-Riccarton

to try and stop the conditions

of the resource consent being

changed. The community board

has been prompted by Templeton

residents.

Fulton Hogan is appealing:

•Depositing clean fill is only

allowed between 6-8pm Monday

to Saturday. Fulton Hogan wants

it changed so the activity can

occur during evenings, night

time and Sundays.

over operating new quarry

•Heavy vehicle movements leaving

or accessing the quarry need

to use the direct route comprising

State Highway 1, Jones and Dawsons

Rds. Fulton Hogan wants it

changed so it just has to take all

practicable steps to ensure the

vehicles associated with the quarry

do not travel on those roads.

•Loaded heavy vehicles arriving

at the site must have their

load covered. Fulton Hogan

wants this condition removed.

•Heavy vehicles with aggregate

or other quarry material leaving

the site must cover their load

and have it dampened with

water spray. Fulton Hogan wants

it changed so that the vehicles

must either cover their load or

have it dampened.

•Once a year ECan may

serve notice of its intention to

review the conditions of these

consents for the purposes of

(amongst other things) “offsetting

or compensating for any

adverse effects on human health

arising from suspended particulate

matter (including dust

and respirable crystalline silica)

generated by quarry activities.”

Fulton Hogan seeks the removal

of the sub-paragraph referencing

adverse health effects.

• Four regulatory certified

PM10 monitors and two dust

management monitors are to

be installed prior to quarry

activities occurring and during

operations. Fulton Hogan

wants it changed to require one

permanent, regulatory certified

monitor and four calibrated,

mobile monitors.

•Prior to the start of quarrying,

the consent holder must design

and implement a Respirable

Crystalline Silica monitoring

programme in consultation with

the Canterbury District Health

Board and ECan and prepare

a report on the results of the

12-month programme within

one month of its completion.

Fulton Hogan is proposing

two, 4-month-long monitoring

campaigns rather than one

12-month campaign.

•Quarry activities (except dust

suppression measures) within

250m of a sensitive receptor

location must not be undertaken

when the wind direction places

quarry activities directly upwind

of the sensitive receptor location

and the wind speed reaches or

exceeds 7 m/s. Fulton Hogan

wants it changed so only a subset

of the activities that may occur

on-site are required to stop

under certain meteorological

conditions.

• It must take all reasonably

practicable measures to minimise

the discharge of dust from

quarry activities which include

ensuring trucks leaving the site

with loads of fine material and

Quarry.

trucks entering the site with

loads of clean fill are covered.

Fulton Hogan wants it changed

so that trucks can alternatively

pass under a water spray boom.

•Should the ability to take

water cease at any time, the consent

holder must cease quarry

activities requiring water usage

to manage dust. Fulton Hogan

wants it changed so the company

will assess the need to temporarily

cease some or all parts of

operations itself.

•Excavation of aggregate and

deposition of clean fill must only

occur where the quarry floor

maintains at least 1m separation

depth to groundwater.

Fulton Hogan is seeking a minor

change so that permissible excavation

depths are defined by reference

to an RL level, as opposed

to metres below ground level.

•Should the groundwater level

increase so that the separation is

less than 1m between the measured

groundwater levels and the

current ground level within the

active quarry floor quarry site,

Fulton Hogan must apply virgin

materials to that area, so as to

reestablish a 1m separation distance

throughout the site. Fulton

Hogan wants it changed to include

that this requirement does

not apply to any areas which

have already been rehabilitated.

•If the results of the second

groundwater samples show an

exceedance of the trigger concentrations,

the consent holder

must sample all domestic wells

within 500m downgradient of

the affected bore. If any domestic

bore sample reveals an adverse

effect on drinking-water quality,

then the consent holder must

either provide the well user with

an alternative supply of potable

water, provide an appropriate

water treatment system, or

install a deeper well for the user.

Fulton Hogan wants it changed

to state that the exceedance must

be more than likely attributable

to the quarrying operations.

Botanic Gardens

now home

to rare pines

A NUMBER of rare and

endangered pine trees have

been planted inside the Botanic

Gardens.

Six wollemi pines – which

have just been planted – can be

found in an avenue near the visitor

centre, said Botanic Gardens

director Wolfgang Bopp.

They join another specimen of

the tree growing near the children’s

playground, which in 2013

was the first wollemi planted in

New Zealand.

One of the world’s oldest tree

species, wollemi pines were

thought to be extinct until they

were discovered by a park ranger

in 1994 in Wollemi National

Park near Sydney.

“Fewer than 100 mature trees

are known in the wild and their

native habitat was preserved by

firefighters during last summer’s

Australian bush fires,” Mr Bopp

said.

They are now being grown

in botanic gardens around the

world to ensure their survival

in case their native habitat is

destroyed, or pests or diseases

cause damage.

These trees are living relics

with links to the past and they

are closely related to the New

Zealand native kauri. We have

chosen a high profile area to

give them more prominence,’’ he

said.

A CALL has been made to

axe street lighting across the

residential red zone, which is

costing the city council $140,000

a year.

There are a total of 1149 lights

within the red zone.

City councillor Aaron Keown

believed all of

these should

be removed in

order to save

money as the

council looks

to trim back

its budget in

the face of a

$99 million

revenue shortfall resulting from

the pandemic.

“We should be taking out the

whole lot. If it is no longer on a

street people are living on, we

should be taking them out,” he

said.

“Leaving street lights on where

no one lives, that just does not

make sense.”

City council manager of

transport planning and delivery

Lynette Ellis said 689 of the lights

could be removed as they are

located on roads closed to vehicle

access.

The annual cost of the 689

lights is $78,000 and the cost to

remove them is $52,000.

Dallington Residents

Bebe Frayle did not

think it would be wise

to remove all of the

streetlights across the red

There are probably

lights in there that

could be removed but wholesale

removal is probably not good for

public safety,” she said.

“A lot of people use the red

zone and I think if you are not a

regular user of the red zone you

Bebe Frayle

can’t really appreciate

how many people use it.”

Things are not as

simple as just switching

lights off.

Said Ms Ellis: “Lights

are connected in groups

which can cover a

number of streets, there

is not a switch available

for each individual light remotely.

While it may be possible

to completely disconnect some

groups from other groups, it

would disconnect lights that are

The city council has not proposed

to cut the cost of any of the

street lights within the red zone

from this year’s draft Annual

Plan.

Ms Ellis said this was considered

but it was ultimately decided

to leave a decision on the future

of the lights to when the council

addresses its Long Term Plan

next year.

However, the lights could be

axed before then if councillors

agree upon their removal.

City shooting survivor

among Istanbul

A MOSQUE shooting survivor

was among celebrations in Turkey

around the decision to convert the

historic Hagia Sophia back into a

mosque.

Hundreds of Muslims, including

mosque shooting survivor

Wasseim Alsati, have gathered

outside the historic site after

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan

announced it would be converted

back into a mosque following a

High Court ruling which stripped

the site of its museum status.

Mr Alsati and his four-yearold

daughter suffered multiple

gunshot injuries at the Al Noor

Mosque during the March 15 terror

attacks.

Photos posted on his Facebook

page show him waving a flag

outside the Hagia Sophia while

wearing a face mask.

Turkish authorities made wearing

facemasks compulsory in

Istanbul and 46 other provinces

as cases began to climb following

the reopening of businesses last

month.

Mr Alsati did not respond to

requests for comment from The

Star.

The first Muslim prayers are set

to be held at Hagia Sophia next

Friday.

Hagia Sophia was built as a

Christian cathedral nearly 1500

years ago and turned into a

mosque after the Ottoman conquest

of 1453. It became a museum

in 1934 under Turkish Republic

founding father Ataturk.

While the move to reconvert

the site to a mosque has been welcomed

by the Islamic community,

it has been opposed by Turkish

secularists and the Catholic

Church.

At a service in the Vatican, Pope

Francis said he was “pained” by

the decision to convert the site

back into a mosque.

The World Council of Churches

has also called on the Turkish

president to reverse his decision.

Burglars target retail outlets

• By Matt Slaughter

RETAIL SHOPS and other

businesses in the central city have

been hardest hit by burglaries

over the last few months.

New data from police shows 26

per cent of the premises burgled

between April 1 and June 30 had

electronic security equipment

that was not on or not working,

while 88 per cent of construction

sites had no electronic security

features.

Data released from police has

revealed there were 396 burglaries

of commercial premises during

this time period.

Retail shops were hit in 31 per

cent of these burglaries, other

commercial premises came in a

close second at 21 per cent.

Detective Senior Sergeant

Damon Wells said the reason

central city retail and commercial

premises were targeted most

for this three month period was

because there were far less people

around as a result of Covid-19

restrictions.

As a result, empty businesses

such as car yards were some of

the main targets.

Of these burglaries, 69 per cent

took place in Christchurch city,

while 17 per cent took place in

more rural parts of the district

including Selwyn and Banks

Peninsula.

The statistics cover some areas

outside of Canterbury including

Mackenzie District, Ashburton,

Timaru and Waimate. Fourteen

per cent of these burglaries occured

in these areas.

The methods used to break into

non-residential premises have

been simple during this time,

with doors being used as entry

points 47 per cent of the time.

However, the number of nonresidential

burglaries was 39.8 per

cent less than between January 1

and March 31.

Tell us about Hargreaves

We are a small longestablished

accounting

and business advisory firm

operating from Christchurch’s

CBD fringe. One little-known

fact about our business is that

until recently we ran the New

Zealand arm of Interflora.

We’re part of the team that

made sure those flowers and

box of chocolates you sent

your mum always arrived on

time.

The recent lockdown has

been tough on everyone,

what was the toughest aspect

for Hargreaves and its

people? How did you adapt?

Lockdown was in some

respects deja vu – it wasn’t

that long-ago businesses in the

CBD were scrambling in the

aftermath of the earthquakes.

Thankfully, we learnt our

lessons from that episode

and were able to transition

swiftly to at-home work. The

technology side of things was

relatively painless – just pick

up a laptop and go. What’s

more, Zoom, Facebook

Messenger video and chat

minimised the feeling of

isolation.

Now that lockdown

has been relaxed, are

you expecting to operate

differently? What aspects of

your business do you think

will change permanently?

We’re back in the office,

though with a new outlook

on workplace flexibility.

When it makes sense to work

at home – when someone is

sick, for example – then we’re

geared up to do it. We can

trust our staff to be

productive, but sometimes coordinating

work is a challenge,

when people in remote

locations are working on the

same set of accounts.

Supported by

What role does technology

play at Hargreaves? Which

technology has been most

helpful? Are you using any

new technology now?

In the days after the

earthquakes we relocated our

servers to CCL’s data centre

and rolled out Windows

Remote Desktop, which gave

us the ability to work from

almost anywhere. Now we’re

planning our next move to

Microsoft 365, which will

further simplify workplace

flexibility and document

sharing. We’re also looking

forward to using Microsoft

Teams.

Do you have a sense of

what the future looks like for

Hargreaves?

The future of workplace

systems is in the cloud.

Correctly done, cloud

services run trouble-free,

flatten running costs, and

give everyone the tools

and information they need

wherever they choose to

work.

Finally, what lessons

have you learned from

this chapter in our

history?

More than anyone else,

Cantabrians know to expect

the unexpected. You’ve got to

be resilient – and that means

having a plan in place. That’s

how we were able to cope

with lockdown. However,

the one proviso is that

everything must be set up

correctly. Security must be

right from the start. Cloud

systems might be a quick way

to get up and running but

the untrained operator will

leave them full of holes. There

are plenty of horror stories

out there. Our partner CCL

ensures everything is done

properly.

Diamond

Harbour

parking

problems

PARKING PROBLEMS near

Diamond Harbour wharf

have sparked a proposal for

restrictions in two areas.

There are currently no

restrictions at the car parks

beside the Banks Peninsula

wharf or at the Stoddart Point

main parking area.

It has attracted freedom

campers, and others using the

spaces all day, which creates

problems for people needing to

park their cars and commute

across Lyttelton Harbour on the

Black Cat Cruises’ ferry.

Black Cat Cruises chief

executive Paul Milligan said

parking has been an issue for

“quite some time.”

“It is an area that needs to be

managed and controlled to make

it fair for everyone.

“Obviously, for our customers,

we’d like to see as much parking

available as possible.”

The city council is asking for

feedback on a proposal to change

the area beside the wharf to include

six parking spaces with 180min

restrictions. It could also keep eight

unrestricted parking spaces and

retain two mobility spaces.

A DECISION on the name of a

cemetery, home to unidentified

victims of the February 22, 2011,

earthquake will be made next

week.

The Avonhead Park Cemetery

which first opened in 1983, was

approved as the interment site

for the remains of unidentified

victims from the earthquake.

The Friends of Avonhead Cemetery

has previously called on

the name of the cemetery to be

changed to Avonhead Memorial

Cemetery in recognition of its

wider significance as the home

of the unidentified victims from

the quake.

City council staff have

recommended the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board, which has

been delegated authority to make

a decision on the matter, to not

change the name at its meeting

on Monday.

Public consultation on

potentially changing the

name did not find a conclusive

preference from the public.

Out of 114 submissions, 51

wanted to change the name, 52

did not want to change the name,

10 suggested a combined name

and one submitter stated they

were happy either way.

of the interment site, one

segment contains the remains of

unidentified victims, while two

segments have been reserved

for the four unfound victims.

The outer circle of the site has

been set aside for all victims of

the earthquake and their family

members.

Thirty-seven earthquake

victims and families of victims

have used the site as a place of

burial, which represents a small

number of the 5000 plots the

cemetery is home to.

City council staff say the

potential distress or offence that

could result from a change of

name could potentially outweigh

the positive feelings of those in

favour of a name change.

“Consultation feedback

indicates that many families

and individuals have chosen

to be interred in a park-like

cemetery, especially within the

lawn area and that for many the

removal of the word park would

be distressing,” city council staff

said.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Banks Peninsula electorate set for

• By Louis Day

THE BATTLE for Banks

Peninsula is set to begin ahead of

September’s general election.

Next Friday, the Labour

candidate Tracey McLellan,

National hopeful Catherine Chu

and Green Party MP Eugenie

Sage will face each other for the

first time in the campaign in

a debate at the Governors Bay

Hotel.

For the first time in several

elections it may not be a fait

accompli for Labour which has

held the seat for 27 years – the

retirement of long time MP Ruth

Dyson and boundary changes

possibly opening the 2020 race

right up.

The new Banks Peninsula

electorate has emerged from what

was previously known as Port

Hills. A boundary change sees

6500 people who were part of

the traditionally National voting

Selwyn electorate now in Banks

Peninsula.

The absence of an incumbent

only adds uncertainty to the

pursuit for the peninsula with

the retirement of Ms Dyson, who

has held the seat under various

different titles for 27 years.

In spite of the hold the

Labour has had over the area for

almost the past three decades,

Ms McLellan refused to take

Tracey McLellan Catherine Chu Eugenie Sage

anything for granted.

“Certainly our campaigning

to date has been really positive,

but I would absolutely not take

anything for granted at all,” she

said.

Ms McLellan has been a

member of the Labour Party

since 2011 and became acting

party president following Nigel

Harworth’s resignation over the

handling of sexual abuse claims

made against party members.

Ms Chu, who attracted

criticism for deciding to stand for

the Banks Peninsula seat whilst a

city councillor for the Riccarton

Ward and also a Canterbury

District Health Board member,

said running for the electorate

was one of the most difficult

decisions she had ever made.

“Ultimately the reason why

I decided to run was because

I felt that I had something to

offer and it was something I

truly believe in. It was a way for

me to represent Christchurch

as a whole and I felt that I

had something to offer to our

residents. It was a really difficult

decision but in the end I stand

by my decision and I know it was

the right decision,” she said.

Ms Chu said her commitments

to the city council and CDHB

would always come before her

campaign.

Ms Sage, who is the Minister

of Conservation, Minister of

Land Information and Associate

Minister of Environment,

In spite of failing to register

His views on immigration

OUR PEOPLE

FEATHER SHAW

No featherweight when it comes to

Feather Shaw recently

started a full-time

role as co-owner of

Christchurch venue

Darkroom. She has

been heavily involved

in the arts scene as a

performer and support

person. Matt Slaughter

spoke to her about her

goals to support city

musicians and artists

in this role and her

background in creative

arts

Your real name is Emma, why

do you use the name Feather?

I’m quite a little human and

I was very, very light as a baby

and a toddler and I was light as

a feather and then it became a

nickname and then when I got

older and started using it as a

stage name, when I started

doing burlesque and cabaret

and stuff, it just was natural to

use Feather.

What do you want to achieve

for the Christchurch arts

community during your time as

Darkroom co-owner?

Our venue is a really small

space and it’s quite forgiving.

It’s the kind of place where an

emerging band can play to 20

people and do those kind of

really low risk [shows]. The

space is still going to feel full

and okay if only 10 or 20 people

come to your gig. A lot of more

established artists played some

of their very early gigs here.

So, Yumi Zouma played their

first-ever gig at Darkroom under

its old management when it

first opened in 2011, people like

Marlon Williams, Nadia Reid

and Aldous Harding have played

there over the years and I think

it’s a really important stepping

stone in getting to a place of

higher success or producing

more work as a performer of

any medium, is having those

accessible, little spaces to start

out in.

We provide that space as

a small venue, but then, my

business partner and I, we’ve

worked in various event

management and venue roles

and performance and backstage

and logistics and administrative

roles within the arts, that we’re

like, wow, we’re sitting on quite

an incredible skillset here that

we want to share with others free

of charge to help them develop, I

suppose, the admin skills to back

up their creative talents.

In particular, we have a real

focus on reaching out to young

adults, so emerging artists,

people who are maybe still

students or in their late teens or

early 20s.

Also, we want to really focus

on making sure that we provide

space for diversity, so it’s not

all, kind of, straight, white men

on the stage. It’s like are we

seeing indigenous artists, people

of colour, LGBTQI+ artists?

And, for me, as a woman in

the scene, it’s really important

to have female and non-binary

representation on the stage as

well.

What is your background in

creative arts?

I’m from Ōtepoti, Dunedin.

That’s where I grew up and went

to high school and university.

I did a theatre studies degree

down there and I actually only

moved to Ōtautahi, Christchurch

about three years ago. Since

being up here, I’ve done a bunch

of different things, I’ve studied

contemporary dance at Hagley

College, I worked at the Court

Theatre as a stage manager and

follow spot operator, I worked

in some backstage roles at Isaac

Theatre Royal, I worked at Hang-

Up Entertainment in logistics for

big touring shows pushing road

cases and hanging lights and

stuff like that and then the job

at Bromley Community Centre,

which was event and community

development kind of stuff.

In terms of a performance

skillset, I do stand-up comedy,

burlesque, cabaret, lots of event

hosting, I MC quite a bit, dance,

circus, theatre, I’ve written and

directed plays, so [I’m] kind of

a performing arts all-rounder, I

guess.

What are some of the most

memorable things you’ve done

as a performer?

One of my most recent ones

that I’ve been really excited

about was my first experience

with making videos and online

content. During lockdown, I

did a social history series called

Woolston Walkies, because I

live in the suburb of Woolston.

Every day I visited a different

location and it was kind of funny

and goofy. I’m out for my daily

exercise walk and we’re going

to the old fish factory, the old

gumboot factory.

There were all these underlying

themes of, like, poverty and that

it was a low socio-economic

area and that the river’s really

polluted, but the river used

performing arts

Have you performed with

anyone famous or noteworthy?

In terms of comedy, I’ve

opened for or been on the same

lineup as the likes of Ben Hurley,

Nick Rado and Cori Gonzales-

Macuer, who was in What We

Do in the Shadows. I opened for

Cori independently at a show

in Dunedin some years ago and

then with Nick Rado and Tarun

Mohanbhai and Ben Hurley, we

were involved in a pilot for a silly,

little TV series, web series thing

called Flat Gigs Dunedin and we

filmed a comedy show just in a

grungy student flat in Dunedin.

Have you had any

embarrassing moments on

stage?

I think I’ve been pretty lucky

generally speaking, but working

backstage at Court Theatre as

an assistant stage manager on

the summer musical, Chicago,

there were some moments of just

absolute chaos when something

would go wrong and I’d be

hidden on the side of the stage

with a roll of duct tape taping

back a set piece together or

whatever while trying to hide

from the audience view.

How supportive has your

family been of your creative

endeavours?

I grew up pretty normal. I

grew up in a pretty bogan family

and we grew up pretty poor and

we grew up pretty bogan but

my parents were always really

relaxed, like, there was never

any pressure to have to succeed

academically or have to want

to have children and buy the

house and have the mortgage

and be a doctor or an astronaut

or whatever. As, a kid, I really

wanted to be a rubbish truck

runner.

I think what has helped me

a lot is that my parents never

really forced me into things.

My dad has passed away now

but he was my absolute biggest

fan with comedy and cabaret, he

would come to all my shows. My

mum lives down in Invercargill

and she loves what I’m doing

and is really supportive of it all

as well. My family has absolutely

backed me.

TALENTED:

Feather Shaw

is a performing

arts all-rounder

and has done

stand-up comedy,

burlesque and

cabaret.

Tell me why you decided to

leave your previous job to start

co-managing Darkroom fulltime?

I was working 20 hours a

week, just a part-time job which

was enough for me to live off, at

Bromley Community Centre.

I was the programme support

worker there, so I largely helped

facilitate all the community

groups like low impact exercise

for elderly people, toddlers

playgroups for parents and, like,

pre-schoolers and then, all the

community events – the big fair,

the big Matariki celebrations,

market days [and] all sorts of bits

and pieces. I really liked that line

of work.

Then, my business partner

Nick and I bought Darkroom

and because it was a pretty scary

venture going fully into selfemployment

in the beginning,

I decided that I could keep both

jobs, so still do my 20 hours a

week at Bromley and then do

another 20 [or] 30 hours a week

running Darkroom. I did that

for a year, kept both jobs, and,

after a year, Darkroom was in a

financially stable enough position

that I kind of weighed things

up and thought I can take my

skillset from Bromley, which is

kind of community development,

and apply that to my job running

a venue.

What impact of the Covid-19

pandemic on Darkroom and

tell me about the fundraiser

that happened to support the

venue?

It was a really uncertain time

not knowing how long it would

take to contain and work towards

eliminating the virus, not

knowing is this going to be four

weeks we’re out of action, three

months, six months?

I don’t think Darkroom was

ever at risk of closing, that wasn’t

an option for us. We started

thinking are their grants? We

started to think is there some

funding or grant money that

we can apply for and we had a

look around and then we saw

that some other venues had had

success with crowdfunding. We’d

never done it for anything before

and we were like, okay, let’s do

one.

For ours, we made $16,000, our

goal was only $10,000.

Pou to be

unveiled at

timeball site

LAYERS OF Maori history,

heritage and rich culture

encapsulated in a new pou

whenua will be unveiled at

Lyttelton’s Timeball Station

today.

The landmark, carved

by Caine Tauwhare of

Ngati Wheke, celebrates the

navigational achievements of

Maori and commemorates

ancestral connections of iwi to

Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour.

It represents traditional

knowledge and navigational

tools which Maori have held for

centuries, and will be formally

revealed at a special ceremony

coinciding with Matariki, or

Maori New Year.

Heritage New Zealand

Pouhere Taonga cares for the

timeball site, and chief executive

Andrew Coleman said it is “very

proud” to have the wonderful

taonga, or treasure, and delighted

to host the historic event.

“Today is the culmination of

four years hard work, dedication

and carving craftsmanship. The

pou references and acknowledges

traditional narratives

from the centuries of navigation

by Maori prior to the arrival of

Pakeha and the creation of the

Timeball Station.”

The Whakaraupo Carving

Centre and Ngati Wheke

proposed having a pou situated

at the timeball as part of the

on-site interpretation after being

approached by Heritage New

Zealand Pouhere Taonga in

2017.

Ngai Tahu Funds subsequently

approved a considerable

grant for Ngati Wheke to carve

the pou.

The pou replaces a temporary

pou – a tryptic panel – that was

The tower was rebuilt with the

the earthquakes of 2010 and

Pouhere Taonga will always remain

the community which enabled

the organisation to return what

we see today to the Lyttelton

streetscape. The building and

daily dropping of the timeball at

1pm is part of Lyttelton’s history

and heritage that needed to be

returned and maintained,” Mr

Coleman said.

“I’m delighted to be part of an

added chapter to the Timeball

Station’s history with the unveiling

and dedication of this pou. It

is a truly representative story of

Aotearoa New Zealand.

been created to showcase the furniture. Target has

partnered with Resene to illustrate the types of colours

that are proving popular in New Zealand homes, and

these are incorporated into the displays.

“Furniture shopping should be fun, easy, inspirational

and a highlight of the customer’s shopping year,” says

Rob.

The new store is a result of significant local and

international research, a considerable amount of recent

experimentation in existing stores and feedback from

customers,” says company director Rob Bielby.

Technology is another innovative feature of the new

store. Unlike traditional ticketing and signage, most of

the signage is now digital, creating a more personalised

message for customers and telling more about the

Target story and the services they offer.

Target is one of the first major retailers to use QR

(Quick Response) labels. This allows customers to scan

the ticket on their phone to get immediate access to

detailed information on the furniture, including sizes,

materials, guarantees, availability, and other items in the

range.

Brochures are also available with details of the different

furniture ranges for customers not wanting to go digital,

Rob says, while staff are always on hand to answer

questions and offer advice.

There is also a digital kiosk equipped with computers

where customers can log onto the Target website and

view the 2500-plus products online, with images also

displayed on Facebook and Instagram.

“We aim to highlight all the shopping options we offer

– digital and instore. Our point of difference is the

experience and we cater for all our customers’ shopping

preferences – from totally digital to totally bricks and

mortar.”


Thursday July 16 2020 The Star 21

Prompt delivery is an important part of the customer

experience, Rob adds.

“We have invested in our own fleet of trucks and are

committed to regular weekly deliveries in Christchurch. Our

goal is to have furniture delivered into Christchurch within

10 days of being ordered, if it is available in our Auckland

distribution centre.”

Target Furniture is located on the ground-floor level of the

Spotlight building on the corner of Moorhouse Avenue and

Durham Street, with several other furniture outlets in the

vicinity.

“This encourages customers to the area as they have more

options to look at,” Rob says, “and while customers do

have a choice, we believe we know how to buy for Kiwi

homes, and offer furniture that gives people the chance to

add a dash of luxury to their home without it costing an arm

and a leg.

“Target is determined to shake up the traditional furniture

retail landscape making fashionable, practical and

affordable furniture available to everyone in a shopping

environment that surprises and delights.”

Target Moorhouse is the first of the new-generation stores

and the concept will be rolled out to all existing stores and

new stores that are planned.

Fighting the big boys

The coming week in our history

THERE SHOULD be no

surprises Fulton Hogan is

appealing conditions imposed

when resource consent was

granted to build and operate a

big quarry on the outskirts of

Christchurch.

Nearby residents fought

in vain to stop the Roydon

Quarry near Templeton. But

the go-ahead was granted by an

Environment Canterbury and

Selwyn District Council hearings

panel.

No surprises there, the little guy

rarely succeeds in these battles.

But the hearings panel put

a number of conditions when

granting the consent which included

which roads heavy trucks

can only use to get to and from

the quarry, dust monitoring for

health reasons and when quarrying

work can take place.

Fulton Hogan, which has as

much legal grunt as it needs,

has now appealed conditions on

the resource consent. This has

prompted the city council to get

involved on behalf of the Hornby-

Halswell-Riccarton Community

Board, which is acting for

Templeton residents.

A nearby resident has also decided

to appeal the resource consent

to the Environment Court,

and is seeking crowdfunding to

pay for what will be an expensive

process.

From the

editor’s desk

Barry Clarke

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Send us

your views on the appeals.

Email barry@starmedia.kiwi

The city council looks set to

argue against Fulton Hogan’s bid

to ease the conditions.

If those conditions are

changed to what Fulton Hogan

wants it will mean heavy truck

movements will happen on

roads other than main ones

in the area, there will be less

monitoring of dust from the site,

trucks won’t have to cover their

loads and work will be able to

happen on Sundays and at night.

So we have two appeal

processes in the wind – the

resident’s against the resource

consent, and Fulton Hogan’s

against the conditions of the

resource consent.

The lawyers will be happy;

people who live near the quarry

will be very anxious.

July 16, 1965 – Gunners of

161 Field Battery fired New

Zealand’s first shots of the

Vietnam War from their base at

Bien Hoa, near Saigon.

July 17, 1939 – Paddy

the wandering dog dies in

Wellington. The brown airedale

terrier was the pet of a young

girl whose father was a seaman.

After the girl’s death in 1928,

Paddy began to wander the

wharves. As he aged, Paddy

wandered less. When his health

deteriorated, he slept in a shed

on the wharves. Death notices

were placed in local newspapers

and a radio tribute was

broadcast. A drinking fountain

near the Queen’s Wharf gates

commemorates his life.

July 18, 1855 – New Zealand’s

first postage stamps go on sale,

the adhesive, non-perforated

stamps for prepaid postage

showed Queen Victoria in her

coronation robes.

July 19, 1982 – Privy Council

rules on Samoan citizenship.

When it granted New Zealand

citizenship to Western

Samoans born since 1924, the

Government did not accept

this decision. It rushed through

an Act granting New Zealand

citizenship only to Western

Samoans who were living in

New Zealand on September 14,

1982.

July 20, 1965 – A riot

rocks Mt Eden prison. The

disturbance followed a botched

escape attempt and lasted into

the next day. Prisoners took

several warders hostage and

fire gutted part of the prison.

Firefighters had to retreat

under a barrage of bricks and

other missiles. Armed police,

warders and troops stood guard

around the prison, discouraging

any attempts to break out

with warning shots and highpowered

hoses. Eventually the

lack of food, fuel and shelter

took its toll, and the prisoners

surrendered 33 hours after the

riot began.

July 21, 1925 – Te Haahi

Rātana established as church.

Founded in 1918 by Tahupōtiki

Wiremu Rātana (1873-1939),

the religious movement that

bore his name gave hope to

many dispossessed Māori and

later became a political force.

July 22, 1987 – Lotto goes

mosque shooting survivor

Mohammed Alayan, who

lost his son in the tragedy,

calling for the death

penalty to be introduced

to New Zealand.

The death penalty must never

be reinstated. It has been proved

time and time again in the

United States that it does not

act as a deterrent. It is barbaric

to even contemplate this whilst

considering ourselves to be a

civilised country. – Bronwen

Summers

The offender I think should be

given one year for each person he

killed, and no parole, then sent

back to Australia to serve his

sentence in Tasmania with the

other mass murderer. This would

be a worse sentence than being

executed even if it was legal in

NZ. Hopefully they would then

have the opportunity to kill each

other. – Sandra Humphrey

– Joe Shaw

Life-long imprisonment

is a better solution to capital

punishment because a terrorist/

criminal could realise he did

very wrong and at least can

improve himself just for himself

in life-long imprisonment.

Imprisonment or any other

punishment is to realise for

criminals they did something

wrong and can improve

themself.

Moreover the person who can

kill 51 people is never afraid

from his death.

Capital punishment can not

We can only stop these actions

prior to it happening by making

our system strong. – Jagroop

Singh

We support Dr Alayan’s comment

on the death penalty for

the heinous crimes and injury

caused at the two Christchurch

mosques.

Losing someone at the hands

of others is hard to cope with,

as we know losing a daughter to

murder.

We supported the death penalty

in the USA. But the three

men, one of whom confessed

to Michelle’s murder, have now

been released and are living and

studying in Brisbane.

The law in NZ will never

change and this terrorist should

be released immediately back

to his country of origin so we

don’t have to pay for his care for

the rest of his life.

This event will live with your

used in NZ? Compo and Otautahi

The pain and anguish of the

survivors and victims of the

March 15 massacres must be

unbearable at times, as must the

anger and rage.

As Dr Alayan says, we strive to

be a “land of love and compassion.”

Taking the lives of other human

beings for revenge or to

serve as a warning to others, to

make a point, are not acts of love

and compassion, in my view.

If it is acceptable, as a

matter of principle, to take

lives under some circumstances

to make a point, it is then only

a matter of opinion and

opportunity as to which

circumstances are acceptable. The

means create the end. Spilling

blood does not lead to peaceful

co-existence.

– Marney Ainsworth

Mohammad Alayan has a

nerve calling for the reintroduction

of the death penalty in NZ. He

should look to the reasons why

we abolished it. We have the

world’s best judicial system. It may

be the norm in most Middle Eastern

countries to execute but not in

this civilised country.

– D. Robinson

Sadly Mr Alayan has misjudged

this country. If he demands the

death sentence then go back to

his own country of birth where

that penalty may be the case.

– Malcolm Waitt

In this case it is very tempting

to make an exception. But overall

I say no to capital punishment.

– Sharon Clements

Yes I totally believe that the

death penalty should be available

to be used in criminal law where

human life has been taken as well

as other crimes that have caused

the victim to suffer from an attack

to a degree that death of the

attacker is the best outcome.

– Russell Ramsden

I am very much against bringing

back the death penalty in

New Zealand.

There have been too many

miscarriages of justice over the

years plus the fact you are

expecting some person to

carry out your wishes which

is not the right thing to do.

– B. Turner

I think capital punishment

should be reintroduced for

criminals who have multiple

offences for the same violent

crimes and who we know will

never change and will always be

dangerous to society if they get

out of prison.

– Garry Edwards

Contractors

As a ratepayer I am tired

and confused. Contractors are

requesting payments from the

council to make up losses they

incurred due to the lockdown

and they are being paid out.

The lockdown was put in place

by the Government and not

the council and it seems to me

that the contractors making the

claims don’t feel part of the five

million.

I see two options: The council

withhold further payment and

let the contractors take them to

court, or payments continue and

contractors receiving payments

receive no new contracts for the

next five years.

Isn’t it about time the council

stood up for the ratepayers

instead of making them

everybody’s lapdog.

– Anthony Brooks

Otautahi Chch

There was a full page

advertisement placed by the

Christchurch City Council entity

ChristchurchNZ in the Sunday

Star Times (July 12).

The bold heading

was: “OTAUTAHI

Has this been debated

The ratepayers of Christchurch

do not need this time consuming,

expensive and confusing

nonsense. Has the council a

mandate to rename the city?

Mayor Lianne Dalziel

Christchurch has been used on

pre-European history of the city

at the same time as referring to

the city.

The Ō is the reference to the

Christchurch CBD prior to the

arrival of European settlers.

Ōtautahi literally means the place

of Tautahi.

As a council we added

Ōtautahi to our vision statement

“Ōtautahi-Christchurch is a city

“I THOUGHT rieslings

were all sweet,” is a

comment that I hear

regularly.

This is a common misconception

that hinders

interest in riesling to this

The truth sees riesling

selection showcasing it in

all its guises.

A racy, dry and refreshing

two playfully off-dry versions.

A sumptuous aged

a lusciously sweet noble

SELWYN SOUNDS

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Rocker to sing from big back catalogue

• By Matt Slaughter

WHEN JON Stevens’ song

Jezebel reached number one on

the New Zealand charts in 1979,

a career in music wasn’t on his

mind.

Said Stevens: “I made a record

when I was 16, it came out when

I was 17, which was Jezebel. It was

released and three weeks later it

was No 1 and all of a sudden, I

was famous in New Zealand.

“It [music] was something

that I didn’t pursue at all, it

was like a happy accident

actually because it wasn’t

something I was actually into

doing,” he said.

But Stevens, who is entertainer

Frankie Stevens’ brother,

couldn’t stay away from music,

and more than four decades

later, he is set to headline Selwyn

Sounds on March 6 at Lincoln

Domain.

Jon Stevens is best known

for being the lead singer of

Noiseworks. He was also lead

singer of legendary Australian

band INXS for four years after

former frontman Michael

Hutchence died.

The Selwyn Sounds crowd can

expect Stevens to belt out a set

of hits from both of these bands

when he takes the stage.

Said Stevens: “I’ve got a

pretty good setlist going with,

obviously, both bands’ songs.

You can’t please everybody, but

nobody’s disappointed ever.

“It’s just hit after hit, you

know,” he said.

Stevens said these hits will

include INXS songs Need You

Tonight, Don’t Change and

Suicide Blonde and Noiseworks’

Hot Chilli Woman.

Stevens fronted INXS in the

early 2000s after Hutchence’s

death in 1997 and toured with

the band for four years.

“When I joined INXS, it was

just one of those things where it

seemed like a perfectly natural

fit and it was, and it’s something

that I know, and we all knew,

Michael would have been more

than happy for me to do because

we were compadres.”

Stevens said he and Hutchence

had “mutual admiration” for

Stevens will be

performing a

set including

songs from

Noiseworks

and INXS at

will also be

each other.

“He [Hutchence] was a very

warm and engaging fellow. He

was a lovely bloke [with] charisma

to burn. One thing people didn’t

realise about Michael was he had

a really, really big voice, it was

really so loud.

“Because his subtlety in his

lower register was just incredible

and his tone was incredible,

when he jumped up an octave

and started belting it out, it was

just like, man, so full-on, and

that’s probably a big part of his

magic,” he said.

Stevens is looking forward

to the Selwyn Sounds crowd

hearing his spin on the INXS

songs and said he has the band’s

blessing to perform them.

Some of Stevens’ best career

memories have been playing

shows with artists including

Elton John, Aerosmith and Slash

and performing at venues such

as Madison Square Garden in

New York and Wembley Stadium

in London.

He said he is looking forward

to seeing the huge Kiwi lineup

set to take the stage at Selwyn

Sounds and his highlights will be

seeing Stan Walker, The Jordan

Luck Band, The Lady Killers and

Annie Crummer.

FOOD

Divisive cabbage a goldmine of nutrition

Cabbage is absolutely

packed with nutrients.

If you have never fried or

sautéed cabbage before,

then you need to start.

Here are a couple of

quick and easy recipes

Seriously good bacon

fried cabbage

4 servings

Ingredients

3 thick slices bacon, diced

1kg white cabbage, core

removed and chopped (10 cups)

1 tbsp garlic, minced

Pinch red pepper flakes

¼ tsp sea salt or more to taste

2 tsp Dijon mustard

2 tsp apple cider vinegar

Fresh ground black pepper

Directions

Add bacon, in one layer, to

a large pan over medium heat.

Cook, stirring occasionally until

the fat renders and the bacon is

crispy – 6-8min. Take the pan off

of the heat, and then use a slotted

spoon to transfer the bacon to a

bowl and save for later.

Remove all the bacon fat

from the pan except for one

tablespoon. Leave more or less,

depending on your preference.

One tablespoon tastes great, but

doesn’t make the cabbage greasy.

Place the pan back onto

medium-high heat then add the

cabbage, garlic, red pepper flakes,

and the salt. It might seem like

too much cabbage for the pan,

but as it cooks, the cabbage will

wilt down.

the cabbage is tender and some

Following the Crusaders’

thrilling clash with the

Blues on Saturday night

in Super Rugby Aotearoa,

Gregor Paul analyses the

Beauden Barrett v Richie

Mo’unga All Blacks debate

– and writes that the

decision is obvious

IT IS time for all of New Zealand

to realise just how good Richie

Mo’unga is. At the moment he’s

the best first-five in the country

and whether the All Blacks

persist with their dual playmaker

strategy or not, Mo’unga has to

be wearing No 10.

Beauden Barrett is the better

rugby player – equipped with

more skills and weapons to strike

an effective attack, but Mo’unga

is the better specialist No 10.

If that wasn’t definitive coming

into Super Rugby Aotearoa

post lockdown, it is now after

Mo’unga did the hardest thing in

rugby by putting a forgettable 40

minutes behind him against the

Blues to somehow find a way to

win his team the toughest contest

they have had in years.

No one should underestimate

the resilience and mental capacity

Mo’unga showed to glue himself

together in Christchurch,

patch up the psychological crack

that was threatening to split him

open and produce a brave, innovative

and frankly brilliant final

quarter to ensure the Crusaders

stretched their unbeaten run at

home to 36 games.

Dan Carter is the greatest

New Zealand has ever produced

and while he had a vast range of

skills, it was his composure and

refusal to ever panic or doubt

himself that set him apart.

And Mo’unga seems to have

that same gift: that same unflappable

nature which doesn’t allow

mistakes to eat him up or get

inside his head.

It’s a treasured skill to possess

and so few have it naturally and

not many learn to develop it

either.

WE’RE BACK!

Plenty of young No 10s have

made a few mistakes in big

games and fallen apart. The first

test Aaron Cruden started in

2010 he kicked the ball out on

the full, made a few more mistakes

and was subbed long before

the end and not then initially

picked in the World Cup squad.

Barrett also suffered a memorable

meltdown in the 2015

Super Rugby final, failing to

deliver the sort of magic against

the Highlanders which he had

produced all year.

His demons engulfed him in

Wellington five years ago and

that disappointment was the

making of him as a world-class

No 10.

He returned in 2016 mentally

tougher and his performances

in the three playoff games were

tactically smart, technically

immaculate and about the most

composed, polished rugby he’s

ever produced.

Mo’unga has steered the Crusaders

to three successive titles

and played at a World Cup, making

it seem a little strange to suggest

that a mid-season encounter

against the Blues is the moment

he came of age.

But never before has he so obviously

found a way to respond

and react so effectively under

pressure. He won that game for

the Crusaders and with it, they

have just about secured the title.

It was almost a final and for

50 or so minutes, the Blues were

threatening to win it. They had

after Rieko Ioane scored his try

had was if they could find a hero,

up and did just that. And what

a few things in the first half had

enormous potential to undermine

his confidence and see him

crawl into a conservative mindset

and stop trusting himself to

play his natural game.

He kicked an easy penalty

into the dead ball area,

squandering a golden

opportunity to set-up for a

short-range lineout drive.

Mo’unga kicked a couple

of times when he had men

screaming outside him to keep it

in hand and there were two wild

inside passes to no one.

He looked like the occasion

was getting to him. That the

mistakes were compounding and

eroding his confidence and then

suddenly he took control, pulling

off the nearly impossible act of

retrieving his own short kick-off

and then delaying beautifully his

perfect pass to put Will Jordan

over for the critical try.

night and ended any lingering

Graham

to hold

court

again

• By David De Somma

SIX YEARS on, and veteran

harness racing trainer Graham

Court is about to take over the top

job at Harcourt Lodge, again.

Now 70, Graham Court will

become the stable’s official trainer

when 40-year-old son Paul and

his young family relocate to

Canada next month.

In 2016 Paul Court took over

from his father, after the pair had

trained nearly 100 winners together

(2009-2015). That included

three consecutive New Zealand

Cups with Terror to Love, the

horse they’ll forever be associated

with.

This season Paul has trained

27 winners, the latest being Stick

Man at Addington on July 5.

Said Paul: “It’s not been an

easy decision. But we’re ready

for something new… it’s time to

put the family first and go from

there.”

He married Canadian-born

Chantelle Swanson sight unseen

in a “Three Strangers and a Wedding”

radio promotion in 2007.

Now they and their two children

are heading back to her home

country. It’s not the first time Paul

Court has spent extended time

there – though this time it seems

it’s for keeps.

On his own account Graham

has trained 204 winners, his career

starting in the late 1970s.

“A lot of owners I’ve had for

over 40 years and I’ve got some

new ones with Paul and I’m not

prepared to throw it all away. I’m

just the boss again.”

Court senior has always been

hands-on.

‘We are doing about 30 with

about 15-20 yearlings to come

back into work so there are plenty

of numbers.” - Harness News Desk

34 The Star Thursday July 16 2020

Skoda going from strength to strength

CALL ME A nosy neighbour if you

like. But I’m very interested in what

people drive, always looking out as

cars drive by.

Two residents on our street drive

Skodas, one’s a reasonably new

Octavia wagon that I would suggest

is a good choice for a company

car given that it is signwritten. The

other is an old Fabia hatchback,

although it is looking a bit tired it’s

still giving good service.

Interestingly, Skoda has just

released a new model, a trendy

hatchback that sits between Fabia

and Octavia, it’s named Scala and

sits in the market from a bargain

price of $29,000. There are three

Scala variants the other two list at

$34,990 and $38,990 depending

on what level of specification you

would prefer.

This evaluation focuses on the

entry level model, and it sits apart

from its stablemates through its

1-litre turbocharged three-cylinder

engine, the other two variants

have a turbocharged four-cylinder

engine of 1.5-litre.

I’m so pleased the evaluation

car was the three-potter. Regular

readers will relate to my affection

for this configuration ever since I

had a Star Media Suzuki Alto for a

work day commuter, I embraced its

honesty and economy.

Nothing has changed with the

new-generation three-cylinder

engines that are appearing in

increasing numbers, and Skoda

has capitalised on the technology

that is coming out of the wider

Volkswagen enterprise, this

engine is working its way through

several models throughout the

organisation’s product line-up.

Skoda Auto rates the 999cc unit

with a feisty 85kW, which is quite

gutsy for its size, there’s also a beefy

200Nm of torque on hand, and it is

where those outputs are developed

that makes the most interesting

reading.

Peak power is available from

5000rpm, maximum torque is

delivered all of the way from 2000

to 3500rpm, the result is a broad

spread of power, delivered in true

three-pot style, the harmonics of

this type of engine are audible,

but it’s not overbearing, and if you

think like I do you will relate to the

difference and will certainly enjoy

the feel of mid-range boost which

is characteristic of turbo engines.

Drive is delivered to the front

wheels through a seven-speed

direct shift gearbox. Even though

DSG is largely considered a

manual gearbox, think automatic,

for the Scala – and those other

vehicles which use DSG – only has

SIMPLISTIC: Driving the Skoda Scala is like wearing your

favourite pair of slippers.

SKODA SCALA AMBITION: Entry model has thrifty three-cylinder engine.

two pedals, if you treat DSG like

a traditional automatic then

you will never really notice any

difference.

The benefit of this type of

transmission is that it doesn’t load

the engine in the way a torque

converter does, drive is unimpeded

and while you can detect shift

changes they are quick and smooth.

I’m very keen on this type of

drive, and if you do want to get

involved in the gearchange process

you can do so through the main

gearshift lever.

In terms of figures, the Scala’s

acceleration is far from disgraced,

it will launch to 100km/h from a

standstill in 9.8sec and will make

a highway overtake (120km/h

from 80km/h) in 6sec, the latter

willing through that mid-range

torque.

The big benefit of the threecylinder

layout and small

capacity is the economy which

can be extracted. Skoda Auto

claims a combined cycle average

of 5.3-litres per 100km, the trip

computer readout in the evaluation

car was constantly showing

6l/100km, with 4.4l/100km listing

at a steady 100km/h, the engine

turning over quite responsive at

2300rpm.

These figures are impressive,

which means fill-ups won’t tax the

credit card. But if maximum fuel

• Performance –

• Fuel usage – 5.3l/100km

economy isn’t a consideration,

check out the 5.7l/100km figure

of the 1.5-litre engine, that is also

quite remarkable.

Driving the Scala is just like

wearing your favourite pair of

slippers, it is comfortable, easy to

manoeuvre at just 4.3m, and is

quiet on all surfaces.

Skoda Auto market the Scala as

a small-to-medium hatch, and that

pretty much sums it up. It is small,

but rear space isn’t compromised

greatly and you do get the benefit

of an under-hatch load area of

467-litres.

Even though the entry-level

model doesn’t get all the bells and

whistles of its stablemates, you do

get a good level of kit for a 30k

outlay, items that figure across a lot

of Volkswagen product.

In base form the Scala rides on

205/55 x 17in Dunlop tyres, that is

quite a sizeable amount of rubber

for a small car, but the benefit is the

grip that can be gleaned and the

associated ride benefits.

The Scala gets a torsion beam

rear suspension; put simply, each

wheel is not independent from the

other, there’s an axle tying them

together which doesn’t allow as

much freedom as there would be

otherwise.

That’s fine, so long as the spring

and damper rates have been well

chosen; thankfully, Skoda has

done a lot of development work

for global roads, and the Scala has

a comfortable, absorbent ride with

tidy handling manners.

At under 1.5m tall, you wouldn’t

expect much gravitational force,

and there isn’t, any body movement

is arrested well without lurching

occupants.

It’s a busy time in the Skoda

dealerships, there’s been three

significant new arrivals in recent

months – the Scala, a new

crossover model badged Kamiq

and an upgraded Karoq that I

evaluated early last month.

I’m so looking forward to a drive

in the new Kamiq soon, but in the

interim the Scala did nothing to

dampen my enthusiasm for Skoda

product, it is all quality built and is

practical to boot.


Get the TLC

experience.

Fix those minor

defects

Start out front, cleaning, clearing and decluttering

the yard to make a good impression on buyers.

It’s a rare house that doesn’t have

defects. Even newly renovated ones

can have features that detract for

buyers. But there are ways for sellers

to deflect attention from them without

pretending they’re not there. The three

main ways of dealing with defects are:

1. Fix them.

2. Draw the eye away from them.

3. Use them as a selling point.

Simple defects can be fixed easily.

Start out front. Overgrown bushes can

be trimmed, or replaced with a few

matching plants, old fences and front

doors can be painted or stained, and

the paths cleaned.

Do this even if a property is a do-up.

You want to give the impression that

buyers can move into the house and

chip away at the work in their own

time.

If you have time and money, paint

sills and eaves using accents.

Inside, the first thing buyers see is

the hallway, which can be brightened

up with a lick of paint. The neutral

paint trick can also be used to paint

over dated wallpaper, completely

changing the look and feel of a tired

house.

Bathrooms and kitchens are

important to buyers, and the eye settles

on vanities and benches. These can be

resurfaced relatively quickly to give a

modern look.

Home & Property appears every Thursday, delivered FREE

throughout Christchurch

For more information and bookings, contact Mike Fulham

M: 021 300 567 E: mike@starmedia.kiwi

If the seller can’t repaint or tile

the bathroom bring in high quality

matching towels, which become a

feature in the room and draw the eye

from the less than desirable walls and

features. Nice vases and flowers will do

the same.

Replacing handles and knobs to

draw attention away from the units

themselves. This reduces the number

of “I have to do this” thoughts in

potential buyers’ minds.

Drawing the eye away from a

multitude of sins is exactly the thing

to do.

If you see an empty house the eye

always goes to marks on the carpet

and walls and this will lower the price

expectation.”

Drawing the eye to the furniture and

furnishings, creates better flow, and de

cluttering makes buyers feel the home

would be a nice place to live in.

The other way to handle the

property’s defects is to raise them with

the buyer before they see them.

If the carpet is bad, for example,

you can say: “Hey, they were going to

replace the carpet but they decided to

leave it to you to choose a new carpet

and priced it accordingly.”

Finally, good old fashioned elbow

grease is essential in all properties

to remove those sins that are simply

cleanable.
