• By Matt Slaughter

ANOTHER Covid-19 testing

centre will open in Christchurch

today to meet huge demand after

community transmission was

confirmed in Auckland.

This comes as Auckland

returned to alert level 3 after four

people there tested positive for

coronavirus.

Canterbury,

and the rest of the

country, moved

to alert level 2

yesterday.

she said.

To meet this demand, she

said another testing centre at

170 Orchard Rd, Harewood,

would open today “until

further notice.”

Callahan said the number

of people visiting Canterbury

testing stations yesterday was

“unprecedented.”

She urges people not to

panic and attempt to see

their GP or phone Healthline

first before going to testing

centres.

The demand has been

unprecedented. I mean, this

is an exceptional situation

but we hope people will calm

down a bit and, actually if

they are unwell, they should

be seeing their doctor and, if

in doubt, then they could be

tested.”

She said people lining up

at Canterbury testing centres

should expect “a lengthy

wait” and only people with

symptoms should go to

them.

In spite of being busy

yesterday, she said testing

centres are coping and pressure

will be eased with the

BUSY: The queue at Countdown Eastgate yesterday.

BUS PASSENGERS are

being urged to avoid

travelling at peak times

following the move to alert

level 2.

Environment Canterbury

senior manager, public

transport, Stewart Gibbon

said the regular bus timetables

will continue to operate

but the network’s urban service

capacity will be limited,

particularly at peak times.

“We are asking people to

avoid using public transport

between 7am and 9am and

2.30pm and 5.30pm on

weekdays, where possible,”

he said.

However, the Metro

school bus network will operate

at full capacity because

testing centres were also a

reality in other parts of the

country yesterday.

Auckland was one of the

busiest areas with reports of

lines stretching for 2km.

A testing centre in Hamilton

also reported being

overwhelmed, and turning

people away.

Two of the of four new

community-transmitted

cases – a woman in her 20s

and a child – travelled to

Rotorua over the weekend

while she was symptomatic.

They visited family and some

tourist locations.

The ministry is working to

find out where else she went

in Rotorua.

Meanwhile, long queues

of people lined to get

into supermarkets in

Christchurch yesterday.

Avoiding peak time for bus travel advised

of schools’ ability to contact

trace.

Gibbon said the Bus Interchange

will remain open,

with front-door bus boarding.

Passengers should leave

via the rear doors, unless

they need to use the ramp.

Masks will be available at

the interchange.

Passengers need to observe

social distancing rules

and sit in bus window seats,

unless seated next to someone

they know. They should

also wear a mask, especially

when social distancing is

difficult, and provide contact

tracing information.

JACQUI TURNBULL was

waiting in the line to watch the

Crusaders play the Blues with

her family last month.

The next thing she remembers

is darkness.

The 55-year-old had collapsed

after an asthma attack and if it

wasn’t for three doctors behind

her in the line, St John paramedics,

police and security staff,

Turnbull said she would be dead.

Said Turnbull: “We had parked

down on Lyttelton St and I was

walking quite fast because I

didn’t want Jack, my little grandson

to miss out on seeing the

horses going around.”

She didn’t have her inhaler

with her and when she got to the

gate and her family members

were getting tickets Turnbull was

feeling faint and decided to sit on

a nearby grass verge.

“That was the last thing I

remember,” she said.

St John ambulance staff came

to her aid and started doing cardiopulmonary

resuscitation but

she was not breathing.

That’s when doctors Tom

Brown, David Lyons-Ewing and

Rob Cole who were standing behind

her, stepped in and inserted

a tube into Turnbull’s mouth to

help her start breathing again.

The doctors were actually

ICU doctors, it was so crazy, and

they just finished their shift to go

to the game.

“If they hadn’t have been there,

I was a goner,” she said.

The three doctors then left

Turnbull in the hands of ambulance

staff.

Said Turnbull: “The ambulance

apparently worked on me for 20

minutes or so before they even

left the stadium.”

She was transported to the intensive

care unit at Christchurch

Turnbull’s family was told she

may suffer brain damage, but

miraculously, she recovered and

“If they hadn’t have been

there, I was a goner.”

– Jacqui Turnbull

was discharged two days after

Crusaders staff heard

Turnbull’s story and invited

her, her daughter Jess Blomeley

and Blomeley’s friend Sophie

Thompson to the team’s training

on Friday in the leads-up to the

Highlanders clash, where he met

with Brown, police and security

staff who helped her, and coach

Scott Robertson.

Said Turnbull: “Tom [Brown]

the young doctor had actually

come in to see me when I was in

the ward, it must have been Monday

morning, so I had actually

met him prior to this. But because

I was so spaced out, just saying

thank you didn’t even cut it.

“It was really cool to be able to

go back there a few weeks later

and meet up with everybody and

it was very overwhelming.”

Meanwhile, Turnbull and her

family got free tickets to see the

Crusaders beat the Highlanders

on Sunday and said she will

never be caught without her

inhaler again.

Captain Ben’s ‘icon’ retires after 28 years

• By Louis Day

A FISH and chip shop owner

heralded as an icon amongst

Canterbury University students is

retiring after 28 years.

Thanh Bang Lu, who has

owned the well known Captain

Ben’s fish and chip shop around

the corner from the university

campus since 1992, told The Star

he was retiring to get some wellneeded

rest.

“I need some rest because my

neck and back is all sore,” he said.

Lu said he loved every single

day he worked at the shop and

wanted to thank his many loyal

customers.

“We see a lot of people who

used to come here when they

were students who come

back and visit the shop and

say hello. Some people bring

back children and they tell the

children this is where they got

their food when they were at

university. I am always very

happy to see them and the next

generation.”

University student and frequent

customer Koby Li said he

started going to the shop after a

number of friends recommended

it.

“I come here for lunch like

three or four times a week,” he

said.

University of Canterbury

CHANGE OF HANDS: Former Captain Ben’s owner Thanh

Bang Lu has retired and is handing over the business to his

nephew Mark Trinh.

Student Association student

executive president Tori McNoe

described Lu as an “icon.”

“He has been a pretty big

icon for students over the years.

It goes from supporting student

rugby teams to creating a burger

for someone in their name who

was running for president of the

student exec,” she said.

Lu will now hand over the

ownership and management of

the business to his nephew Mark

Trinh, someone he described as a

“tall, young and very experienced

captain.”

“I left it to him because he is

a good chap. He is younger and

stronger than me.”

managing Captain Ben’s “really

fun” so far and was amazed by

the loyalty of some of the customers.

“Last Sunday, someone from

Timaru came all the way up

here for some fish and chips,”

he said.

Lu said egg fried rice, fish and

chips, chicken burgers and potato

fritters were his most popular

dishes over his 28 years in charge

of the store.

He said the secret to good fish

and chips was “time to work.”

He will still be at the shop from

time to time.

“If my nephew is stuck and he

needs help I will go there.”

Man in court after

gang fight stabbing

• By Kurt Bayer

A GANG fight that started in

a St Martins supermarket car

park ended with a woman being

stabbed in the back.

George Waaka Hadfield, 23,

was arrested by police after the

violent flare-up in broad daylight

on October 16 last year.

Hadfield appeared in

the district court yesterday

afternoon to plead guilty to a

charge of wounding with intent

to cause grievous bodily harm.

He will be sentenced later in

the year.

The court heard that Hadfield

was with his partner at New

World supermarket on Wilsons

Rd when a man approached

Hadfield in an aggressive

manner, “making comments in

support of Black Power”.

They started yelling at each

other, leading to a brief fight,

before it broke up.

A woman and her partner

started walking away towards

Wilsons Rd.

Hadfield followed them and

more words were exchanged.

The woman and Hadfield’s

partner got into another fight

GUILTY: A 23-year-old pleaded guilty in the district court

yesterday to wounding a woman in a gang fight that

started in the New World St Martins car park.

which ended up on the ground.

Hadfield then “came in with a

knife” and stabbed the victim in

the back between her ribs, also

slicing her right ear.

Hadfield and his partner then

fled in a car.

The court heard that the

victim was stabbed in the

back, between the ninth and

10th rib, causing hemothorax

– a collection of blood in the

space between the chest wall

and the lung. Hospital staff

also recorded an internal liver

laceration “due to the trauma”.

The wound to her right ear

needed stitches.

When police caught up

with Hadfield, he said he did

not stab the victim “and that

it was a Mongrel Mob member

who had passed him in a

motor vehicle as he walked home.”

Judge Tony Zohrab gave

Hadfield a warning under the

three strikes law and remanded

him on electronically-monitored

bail. A sentencing date is yet to

be confirmed. – NZ Herald

A MOTORIST more than three

times over the drink driving limit

who crashed into a bridge was a

former Crusaders staff member.

Last week, The Star revealed

the driver who struck a bridge at

Tai Tapu in the early hours of the

morning was due to hand back

the company car he was driving.

Now The Star has learned he

was part of the the champion

franchise who had lost his job in

a restructure days before the 1am,

July 27 crash.

He recorded a breath alcohol

reading of 1068 mcg/l, more

than three times the legal limit of

250mcg/l. Miraculously, he was

uninjured.

Crusaders chief executive Colin

Mansbridge said he was limited

in what he could say as it was

a private, employment-related

matter involving a “now former”

Crusaders employee.

He would not say if the former

employee would be liable for the

vehicle.

Asked if he was on Crusadersrelated

business on the weekend

of the crash, Mansbridge said:

Thursday August 13 2020 The Star

NEWS 5

Former Crusaders

staffer gets boozed,

crashes franchise car

“Absolutely not.”

The Crusader vehicle was written

off and $6000 damage was

caused to the bridge.

It is likely he will face a bill

for both, as well as a potential

lengthy suspension from driving.

Said Mansbridge: “It goes

without saying that the Crusaders

do not condone driving under

the influence, irrespective of

whether someone is in a company

vehicle or not. We are unable to

comment further on the specific

details relating to this incident.”

Said Senior Constable Andy

Williamson who attended

the crash: “He was incredibly

remorseful and understood the

consequences of what he had

done.”

The man had been drinking in

Lincoln after watching a rugby

match earlier in the day.

The crash came during a

Canterbury-wide police crackdown

on drink driving in July.

Police tested 14,042 motorists

during the month. Sixty-seven

were over the legal limit of

250mcg/l, 32 of those over the

second limit of 400mcg/l.

Anti-lockdown conspiracists deface

• By Louis Day

MESSAGES written throughout

the central city suggest the same

anti-lockdown sentiment that

has plagued countries overseas is

alive and well in Christchurch.

Words in chalk by the Bridge

of Remembrance state “Unlawful

lockdown,” “Covid kills your

rights” and “Covid lies NZ dies.”

This comes after Auckland

moved into alert level 3 restrictions

and the rest of the country

was placed under alert level 2

yesterday following four new

Covid-19 cases of unknown

origin being discovered in South

Auckland.

The city council told The Star it

was arranging for the messages in

sensitive sites such as the Bridge

of Remembrance to be removed

“as soon as possible.”

The phrases of defiance to Government

restrictions in the face of

a global pandemic written across

the city draw similarities to the

rhetoric used by anti-lockdown

protesters in the United States.

Demonstrators across the states

could be seen bearing signs with

phrases like “plandemic” and

“defy fascist lockdown” during

nationwide demonstrations.

Signs pictured in protests

across England held messages

such as “freedom over fear” and

“I do not consent” which was also

written outside the Christchurch

City Council building yesterday.

Earlier this month, up to 17,000

people in Berlin also protested

the Government increasing

restrictions as cases begin to rise

in the country.

Negative Covid tests at

Christchurch rest homes

THE COVID-19 tests from two

Christchurch rest homes that went

The Canterbury District Health

Brookhaven Retirement Village

Retirement Community in Shirley

Brookhaven reportedly tested

eight of its residents and put them

Village Palms advised family

residents began displaying symptoms

of a respiratory illness.

Former

council

employee

in court

• By Devon Bolger

THE WAY has been cleared for

a community group to try and

get back about $18,500 stolen by

a former council employee they

trusted.

Lisa Elaine Larkin, 51, will be

sentenced in the district court in

late October after pleading guilty

to two charges of theft by a person

in a special relationship and one

of forgery with intent to obtain a

benefit.

Larkin abandoned a legal bid in

the district court where she had

intended to dispute the amount it

was claimed had been stolen from

Selwyn SeniorNet’s bank account.

The former Selwyn District

Council community development

advisor was convicted in May of

stealing about $18,500 from the

Selwyn SeniorNet’s bank account.

The group says it has affected

their ability to help the elderly.

Selwyn SeniorNet chairman

Terry Pierson said reparations

would be sought from Larkin

when she is sentenced on

October 28.

A FREE hour of parking trial in

two central city buildings could

be extended up until the end of

November.

City councillors will decide

whether or not to extend the

“first hour free” trial which has

been running in the council’s

Lichfield St and Art Gallery parking

buildings since the start of

June at their meeting today.

The trial is set to expire at the

end of this month but could run

until the end of November if

councillors agree to extend it.

City council staff have recommended

against the trial continuing.

This comes as it forecasts a loss

of $300,000 in revenue from the

trial by the end of this month. If

the trial was extended by three

months it is expected to lose a

further $300,000 in revenue.

The trial has also only led to a

0.05 per cent uptake in parking

when compared to the same

period last year.

Acting Mayor Andrew Turner

said it was important for the

council to look at what was value

‘First hour free’ parking

for money.

“If we are seeing 0.05 per cent

uplift in the use of our parking

buildings and at the same time

we are expending $100,000 a

month, when you look at the

cost versus the benefit it becomes

reasonably easy to see why staff

have recommended that we don’t

continue with the one hour of

free parking,” he said.

“It may be that there are other

things that we can do in terms

of events or other activations

that would actually be far better

use of the sort of money that we

are spending on subsidizing car

parking.”

Central City Business Association

chairwoman Annabel Turley

said it would be happy to see the

trial extended, but would have

prefered two hours of free parking

as opposed to one.

The discussion around whether

or not to extend the “first hour

free” trial in the council’s two

parking buildings comes after the

city council decided to convert a

third of the parking meters within

the central city to cashless.

While the decision to convert

65 of 196m throughout the city

has attracted a “small number” of

complaints, the city council sees

it as a “sensible” move.

Users of the cashless machines

are charged a 50c fee on top of

what they pay in parking using

the machine.

It is also possible to pay via

the PayMyPark app which also

charges users an additional fee

for its use. For example, if an

individual were to purchase

$10 worth of parking using the

app, they would be charged an

additional fee of 92c, or if they

purchased $20, the fee would

be $1.72.

However, within a short

distance of cashless machines

remain ones that still accept cash.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Macy’s BIG day at Massey Vet School

- PART ONE

I’m sure many of you have either met or read about

the newest member of the McMaster- Heap family

- Miss Macy, our scrumptious, beautiful glossy black

18 week old Labrador puppy. Just like half of CHCH,

we decided to get a puppy in lockdown (or rather

gentled pressured from our 3 sons who had all

converged on us begging for one). Lola is nearly 11

years old, so I felt it a

good age for her to

enjoy a playmate and

teach her prodigy “the

ways of the vet clinic”.

Macy has a very

sound pedigree,

with her dad a UK

champion and her

mum, coincidentally

called Lola, bred in

Christchurch. The

breeder made sure

the dam and sire

were hip and elbow

scored and their

results were excellent

(as were generations

further back). As a

conscientious breeder,

apart from selection

on temperament, you can’t do much more. When we

visited the litter they all seemed perfect!

Unfortunately for Macy (and me), she has ended

up with Elbow Dysplasia, affecting both forelegs

(Funny that I can’t remember when I last diagnosed a

puppy with this disease). Apparently it is reasonably

common in large breed puppies especially Labrador

retrievers, German Shepherds and Bernese Mountain

dogs. Most are not diagnosed as young as Macy - the

“upside” to having parents who are Veterinarians,

along with free toys, tasty foods and delicious treats

always on tap!!

At about 12 weeks of age I noticed a subtle shifting

foreleg lameness, worse on getting up from rest

and after boisterous short plays with Lola. She

was normal with leash walks but pulled away

when I went to palpate her elbows. The lameness

progressively became more pronounced so I asked

Richard Lucy to radiograph all her limbs. I prayed

she just had panosteitis - pain along the long bones

associated with rapid

growth, seen in fast

growing puppies.

The day of the surgery

at Massey University

Veterinary School

Macy and her big sister

Lola holidaying in

Northland

Macy’s X-rays ruled out

panosteitis but there

was some question mark

over joint pathology.

Radiography can’t detect

subtle changes in the

cartilage matrix or fissures

in the coronoid process

of the ulna. Macy then

underwent a CT scan

through Pacific Radiology

at Lincoln University

to get a clearer insight

into her joint health and

determine her cause of

lameness. The CT scan

was read by a Registered

Veterinary radiologist who

diagnosed bilateral elbow

dysplasia.

The elbow is a very complex joint, comprised of

3 bones that have to synergistically sit and move

together perfectly. There are 3 parts that make up

elbow dysplasia and Macy has 2 of them - OCD

of the medial humeral condyle and FCP (medial

fragmented coronoid process of the ulna). Not

great news for a 16 week old puppy. I did some fast

research on Elbow Dysplasia, watching webinars and

sourcing differing opinions from surgeons worldwide

on the best way to tackle this disease to help slow

the progression and stop the pain for Macy. I talked

to our surgeon, Helen Milner, and Andrew Worth (a

classmate of mine 30 years ago at Vet School), an

orthopaedic surgeon at Massey University.

Open 7 days

Cnr Hoon Hay & Coppell place

phone 338 2534, Fax 339 8624

e. mcmasterandheap@yahoo.co.nz

www.mcmasterheap.co.nz

The best outcome for Macy was for her to undergo

arthroscopy (keyhole surgery) on both elbows at

Massey University Veterinary Hospital, to remove

the coronoid process if it was seen to be fractured

or fissured and check her cartilage and remove

any OCD lesion (folding and tearing of the articular

cartilage due to collapse of the subchondral bone).

Andrew said he would squeeze Macy in on Monday

13th July (my birthday!!! So had to be great luck) so

Steve and I, with Macy and Lola in tow, made a road

trip to Palmerston North ASAP. The things you do for

your pets. Helen could also have operated on Macy’s

elbows via arthrotomy ( which is incising her elbow

joints to remove cartilage and bone fragments). We

decided for a puppy so young, keyhole surgery was

going to be minimally invasive therefore her recovery

time faster and with magnification into the elbow

joint, you can appreciate better the health of the

cartilage and degree of damage.

Macy was a “superstar” on surgery day. She was

operated on at 3pm and home with us at 6.30pm.

She has really never looked back and was walking

better almost immediately. Andrew thought

her pain was mainly due to the bilateral OCD

lesions (loose flaps of cartilage that he incised and

smoothed out, preparing the way for fibrocartilage

to be laid down).

Recovering

in the Bay of

Islands

Macy undergoing CT

The hardest part now is keeping her out of mischief.

She just wants to run like a rabbit and for 1 month

post operatively she is limited to 5-10 minutes on a

leash daily and then crated or house rested. She’s

nearly done her month confinement and will be able

to enjoy longer walks, although no off-leash running

for a while. My job now is to keep her lean, feed her

joint supplements including Omega oils and 4 cyte,

restrict running, jumping down and vigorous play

and somewhere in there start training her to be as

well behaved as Lola.

So far so good. I’ll keep you posted on her recovery.

Fears Riccarton Rd

speed limit change

could hurt businesses

• By Louis Day

THERE ARE fears a

proposed speed limit

overhaul for Riccarton Rd

could deter shoppers from

the area and be detrimental

to businesses.

The various speed limit

changes the city council

is planning to introduce

into the suburb include

the section of Riccarton

Rd between Matipo St and

Straven Rd, which is home

to Westfield Riccarton,

being converted from a

50km/h zone to a 30km/h

zone.

City councillors are set

to make a decision on the

matter at their meeting

today.

Westfield Riccarton and

Pak’N Save management

alongside McDonald’s franchise

owners are concerned

the reduced speed limit on

Riccarton Rd could deter

Authorised by Timothy Grigg, 160 Willis Street, Wellington.

shoppers from coming into

the area.

They also believe the

change would lead to

people thinking it is too

much of a “hassle” to get to

these businesses, altering

their shopping behaviours

and taking their money

elsewhere.

Environment Canterbury

thinks the plan could slow

down buses and has suggested

making the whole

area 40km/h as opposed to

30km/h.

The city council is proposing

the various speed

limit changes after a safety

audit found 30km/h to be

a more appropriate speed

limit for the road after undergoing

extensive works

which resulted in altered

road layout.

It said the decreased

speed limit would result

in a reduced 10 per cent

probability of a fatal or

serious injury between

a car and pedestrian or

cyclist.

Alongside the proposed

changes to this section

of Riccarton Rd, the city

council is also looking

to place a 30km/h speed

limit in the retail areas of

Rotherham and Division

Sts.

The entire lengths of

Kauri St, Rata St, Rimu St

and Titoki St could also be

converted to 30km/h zones

after previously having

50km/h speed limits.

A total of 119 organisations

and individuals made

submissions on the

proposal, with about twothirds

being in support of

the plan.

Key reasons for support

were for the safety of

all road users including

cyclists and pedestrians not

just cars and other motor

vehicles.

ELECTION 2020

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

High stakes – the cannabis question

New Zealanders

heading to polling

stations in September

will also be asked

to vote on whether

they want cannabis

legalised. Daisy Hudson

takes a look at the vote,

which could have a

major impact on our

society

CANNABIS. Weed. Marijuana.

Dope. Mary Jane. Pot. Ganja.

Whatever moniker you know

it by, the distinctive green leaf

has blazed a trail through New

Zealand culture for decades.

Outlawed in New Zealand

since 1927, cannabis could this

year be legalised for recreational

use if the majority of Kiwis tick

yes in the September referendum.

Despite nearly 100 years of

prohibition, cannabis was not

significantly policed until the

1960s.

The Misuse of Drugs Act came

into effect in 1975, introducing

the classifying system that gave

cannabis its class C grading.

After years of debate, it took a

confidence and supply agreement

between the Labour Party and

the Greens signed after the 2017

election to formally put the issue

ON SALE: A staff member discusses the various strains of product

available in a cannabis store in Seattle. Stores like this may soon be a

reality in New Zealand.

PHOTO: GETTY

to a public vote.

The referendum will be

non- binding, meaning even

if the majority of people give

it the green light, it will not

automatically become law and

will still need to go through

Parliament.

There is a fair amount riding

on the outcome.

While police resources appear

to have been channelled into

cracking down on more harmful

drugs such as methamphetamine

in recent years, people continue

to be prosecuted for growing,

possessing or selling cannabis.

The maximum penalty for

possession or use is three months

jail and/or a fine of up to $500.

There are major ramifications

for the health system, which

shoulders the burden of treatment

costs.

And if the majority of people

vote against legalisation, its

hard to see another government

expending political capital to raise

the issue again anytime soon.

For those thinking it is still a

niche issue, think again.

For a long time, New Zealand

had one of the highest rates of

cannabis use per capita in the

developed world.

The internationally renowned

Dunedin Study found about

80 per cent of New Zealanders

born in the 1970s reported using

cannabis at least once.

University of Otago assistant

research fellow Geoff Noller

points out that, given the

majority of New Zealanders

continued to try cannabis at

least once in their lifetime,

criminalisation had clearly failed

to curb usage.

If we’ve got such a high rate of

use, and we’ve got this law that’s

been there the whole time, it’s

pretty easy to see that doesn’t

work. Legal cannabis use took a

big step forward when medicinal

cannabis became legal in April

this year.

ELECTION 2020 13

It’s impossible to ignore the impact

campaigner Helen Kelly had

on that move before her death

from lung cancer in 2016.

Medicinal cannabis companies

were champing at the bit to start

production.

As many countries and states

around the world have found,

legalising medicinal cannabis has

paved the way for recreational

use to be considered.

The New Zealand Medical

Association, which represents

doctors from a range of specialties,

came out against legalisation

last year.

At the time, chairwoman Kate

Baddock said that in addition to

physical harm, cannabis created

social and psychological harm.

What we would like to see is

the Government undertaking

targeted initiatives to reduce the

social inequalities that increase

the risk of harm from drug use

and meaningful investment

into education and treatment

programmes. It also wanted a

public education campaign to

demonstrate that soft, or recreational

drugs, could have serious

and harmful effects.

Opponents have described the

proposed legal cannabis industry

as the new “big tobacco.”

Smart Approaches To Marijuana

NZ argues drug use is both

a criminal and a health issue.

A smart arrest policy can

both provide a societal stamp of

disapproval and provide an opportunity

to intervene and stop

the progression of use, it said.

The Dunedin Study found the

majority of people who used

cannabis did so with little or no

harm.

When study participants were

in their 20s, when use was highest,

the level of problematic usage

resulting in cannabis dependence

diagnosis was about 4-10 per

cent.

But it did find the chances of

experiencing psychotic symptoms

and/or psychotic disorders

were elevated, especially if use

began during adolescence and

continued into adulthood.

For example, in the Dunedin

Study the risk of having

a psychotic disorder by age 26

among early onset cannabis users

roughly doubled compared with

non-users. Cannabis use could

also impact brain function, it

found.

The largest loss of eight IQ

points was found among study

members who began using

cannabis during adolescence

and who continued using cannabis

up to the age of 38. Based

on the findings, researchers

recommended that prevention

and policy-making should concentrate

on delaying the onset

of cannabis use until adulthood,

and that education programmes

should be used to target adolescents

with messages about how

cannabis could affect their brain

development.

That is indeed a key component

legalised

the use of

medicinal

cannabis in

April, and will

next month

vote on the

legalisation of

recreational

use of the drug.

PHOTO: GETTY

of the Bill that would go before

Parliament should the referendum

pass.

If you’re under 20, you would

not be able to enter, or work at,

somewhere cannabis was sold or

consumed.

What’s clear in the cannabis

debate is that the issue is polarising,

and the referendum result

could be extremely close.

A UMR poll commissioned

by the Helen Clark Foundation

and released in early July found

48 per cent of New Zealanders

would support the proposed Bill,

and 43 per cent were opposed.

Whichever way it falls, Kiwis

wont know the result until

preliminary details are released

on October 2. • The facts, page 14

LEGALISATION AROUND

THE WORLD

SEVERAL countries have relaxed

their cannabis laws in recent years

with varying results.

An often-cited example is

Canada. It legalised recreational

cannabis use in late 2018 and

has a suite of regulations in

place. Like the proposed New

Zealand law, it features an age

restriction, although it’s 18

rather than 20.

About $186 million in revenue

was collected in the first fiveand-a-half

months of legalisation

in Canada.

An article in the Journal of

Psychiatry and Neuroscience

published in September 2019

found legalisation had increased

cannabis use in only one group

men aged 45-64 years old (9-14

per cent).

But it also found a black market

continued to thrive.

Legal sellers cannot keep up

with demand, their product

costs more than on the street

and the range of products offered

is limited. Uruguay, South

Africa and states in the United

States have also legalised cannabis

use, to varying degrees.

But the prime minister’s chief

science advisers office points out

most evidence is too recent to

draw any conclusions from.

The limited evidence from

overseas examples is mixed and

constantly evolving outcomes

from early studies appear to be

both positive and negative.

ELECTION 2020

• From page 13

What is in the legislation?

It has been at the centre of

hyperbolic rhetoric, political

back and forths, and ardent

campaigning on both sides.

When you go to vote in this

year’s election, you will be asked

whether you support it or not.

But what does the proposed

Cannabis Legalisation and Control

Bill actually do?

In a nutshell, it gives the Government

a way to control and

regulate cannabis, by providing

a model to cover how people

can legally produce, supply, or

consume it.

One of the biggest changes is

that it would legalise the possession

and consumption of cannabis

in certain circumstances.

It would also allow cannabis to

be sold from licensed outlets.

Under the proposed Bill, people

aged 20 or over could buy up

to 14 grams of dried cannabis a

day from licensed outlets, enter

licensed premises where cannabis

is sold or consumed, consume

cannabis on private property or at

a licensed premises, and grow up

to two plants with a maximum of

four plants per household.

There are also some things the

Bill does not cover, mainly issues

already covered by existing laws.

For example, medicinal cannabis,

driving under the influence

of cannabis, or workplace health

and safety issues, are not covered

under this Bill.

While it would significantly

liberalise New Zealand’s cannabis

laws, it also comes with some

regulations.

As well as the age limit, health

warnings would be required on

packaging, and the total amount

of licensed cannabis for sale

would be limited, as would the

potency of it.

A person must be aged 20 or

over to enter, or work at, premises

where cannabis is sold or

consumed.

However, a person under 20

could be employed by a licensed

cannabis grower or processor.

Communities would be

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Cannabis referendum: The facts

consulted about where cannabis

could be sold or consumed, and

it could not be imported.

The Bill also contains a focus

on health outcomes, rather than

criminal proceedings.

A person under 20 found in possession

of cannabis would receive

a health-based response such as an

education session, or they would

pay a small fee or fine. They would

not gain a conviction.

It would not be a free-for- all

on cannabis products, however.

Some would be banned, such

as beverages including cannabis,

products designed to increase the

psychoactive or addictive effects

of cannabis, and products that

involve ways of consuming cannabis

that are higher risk, including

injectables and suppositories.

Edibles would be restricted

to baked products that do not

require refrigeration or heating,

and must be produced in separate

premises to those used for

conventional food production.

In other words, you are not

likely to see hash brownies in

your local fast food outlet or cafe

any time soon.

One of the key points is cannabis

would be taxed and licences

would be required to sell it,

providing a new revenue stream

for the government.

It is estimated that could bring

in hundreds of millions of dollars

each year.

A levy, similar to that applied

to alcohol and gambling, would

also fund services to reduce cannabis

harm.

A regulatory authority would

be established to ensure the rules

were followed.

The law would also be reviewed

after five years.

As for the referendum, it is

non-binding.

That means if more than 50

per cent of people vote ‘Yes’, the

incoming government can introduce

a Bill to Parliament.

However, if more than 50 per

cent of people vote ‘No’ in the

referendum, recreational cannabis

would remain illegal, and the

law would be unchanged.

Could voters be leaning

towards ‘yes’ in the

cannabis referendum

in September’s General

Election?

A poll conducted on The

Star’s Facebook page last month

suggest voters are leaning

towards a ‘Yes’ vote.

The poll found 67 per cent of

3000 respondents supported

the legislation of cannabis,

with 33 per cent against. This

equates to 2026 respondents

being in favour of legalisation

and 874 being against.

Comments made on the

Facebook poll exhibited a range

of differing perspectives and

opinions on the matter.

Jo Margaret said she was

voting yes, even though she

doesn’t use cannabis or like it.

“I want those who do use it

to be safe, to not be a criminal

for cannabis use. To not be

associating with gangs and not

put themselves at risk,” she said.

Whereas Judy Ware warned

against legalisation.

“How can any observer vote

yeas [sic]. Drugged drivers

on our roads us a a [sic] scary

concept. We have enough

accidents and deaths now.”

However, there were people

like Paul McNeil who had not

yet come to a final decision.

Seafarers’ welfare ‘grossly underfunded’

• By Stu Oldham

THE MISSION for Seafarers in

Lyttelton could fold unless the

Government paves the way for

consistent funding as the sector

struggles through the global

pandemic.

This emerged as the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

prepares to discuss a grant to the

mission at its next meeting.

The Ministry of Transport has

given the national mission a sixmonth,

$295,000 lifeline to help

seafarers stuck in 28-day on-ship

quarantine.

However, there are fears as to

what will happen if the funding

is not continued and the sector

cannot hire the professional staff

it needs.

Many groups rely on funding

from overseas charities and local

churches. All are struggling

to raise their own funds as the

recession bites.

Volunteers are also likely to

be thin on the ground – many

are in their 70s and many are

unlikely to return to work postpandemic.

Mission for Seafarers Lyttelton

chaplain John McLister said

his international funder would

honour the remaining two years

of his three-year contract.

After that, “it’ll be over.”

Without new funding, there

levies provide for the seafarer welfare sector.

was a strong chance the seafarer

welfare sector would struggle to

survive as it is into the new year,

he confirmed.

If this happened, New Zealand

would fail to meet its obligations

under the international Maritime

Labour Convention, he said.

The convention says technically

competent people should

be employed full-time to operate

seafarers’ welfare facilities and

services.

Such services could cost in

the region of $1 million nationally,

or about $150,000 per port,

based on pre-Covid-19 estimates

put to the Government before

the response, McLister said.

A professional service at Lyttelton

would need two full time

staff, he said.

McLister is chairman of the

Seafarer Welfare Board, which

wants the cost paid by a levy on

shipping, as allowed for under

the convention.

It suggests $50 for trading

vessels and $100 for cruise ships

levied at their first port of call. The

convention allows voluntary levies

but previous attempts to raise

them failed, McLister said.

The sector relied on charitable

giving, port company assistance

and grants from community

boards and councils – which

often owned the ports where the

services are based.

“But no, when it comes down

to it, I don’t think we should

have to go cap in hand to little

old ladies and be out there cooking

barbecues to raise money

when there are companies making

millions of dollars from the

people we are here to help.”

Banks Peninsula Community

Board member Tyrone Fields said

the board and the wider community

supported the mission’s work

– “it is part of who we are in a port

town” – but that he was actively

advocating for the shipping sector

to pay its way.

A levy would be fair and would

A HUMAN Rights at Sea

report released in March

says found New Zealand has

a “broken system of gross

underfunding” for seafarer

welfare.

The United Kingdom-based

charity says the Government

has failed to safeguard seafarer

welfare under the Maritime

Labour Convention, in spite of

raising considerable funds from

maritime levies.

It says the “responsibility of

the state has ostensibly been

outsourced to the maritime

charitable sector.”

It recommends the Government

immediately review how

seafarer welfare is funded, and

introduce a levy system or ringfence

part of the maritime levy

already in place.

New Zealand ratified the

convention in 2016. It came

into effect in 2017.

help New Zealand conform to

the charter it signed in 2016.

It was also “our manaakitanga

– doing this helps us show hospitality

to those who are, after all,

bringing stuff to us, and taking

our stuff overseas,” he said.

Labour Party Peninsula

candidate Tracey McLellan said

it was an issue her party was

looking closely at.

Specsavers

launches new

hearing health

service in

Papanui

ADVERTORIAL

Hearing loss affects approximately

76,000 people in Christchurch and,

according to research, it takes New

Zealanders on average 7-10 years to

acknowledge they have hearing loss

before taking action. At Specsavers,

we don’t want the community of

Papanui to wait that long, and that’s

why we are delighted to announce

the introduction of a new audiology

service in-store. Specsavers Audiology

Papanui is now open to help with any

hearing concerns, with a qualified

audiologist Ingrid Wellacott onsite to

test and care for locals’ hearing health.

“Once you reach 40 years old, hearing

checks should be as regular as eye

checks. When you visit Specsavers

Papanui, you will be provided with

quality care and a solution based on

your lifestyle and budget. We will never

recommend hearing aids if you don’t

need them or suggest spending more

money than you have to. Prices for our

full range of latest technology hearing

devices are available online

or instore so you know exactly

how much you will pay. Our

comprehensive hearing assessments

are the start of your hearing journey

that we can support along the way

for years to come,” Ingrid says.

SIGNS YOU OR SOMEONE YOU

LOVE MAY BENEFIT FROM A

HEARING CHECK

“Hearing loss can be incredibly

isolating, and our ability to form and

maintain good social relationships is

important to life satisfaction and good

mental health. We are innately social

creatures after all,” Ingrid says.

Our research found that two in three

New Zealanders aged 40 years and

older know someone who they think

suffers from hearing loss. It also found

that 83% say they have felt concerned

about their own hearing at some point

in time and of these, the equivalent

to 300,000 New Zealanders have

felt concerned about their hearing

frequently. That’s a lot of

conversations missed!

Ingrid says if you or anyone you know

experiences any of the below tell-tale

signs, you may benefit from some

expert qualified advice that begins

with a free 15-minute* hearing check

at Specsavers Papanui.

• Do you have the TV or radio

turned up louder?

• Do you find telephone

conversations hard work or find

yourself always using the speaker

option?

• Do you ask people to repeat things?

• Do you have difficulty following

conversations in groups of people

or find yourself lip reading?

• Has someone suggested you

might not be hearing as well

as you used to?

HOW TO ENSURE YOU PROTECT

YOUR HEARING HEALTH

Ingrid recommends a few simple

things to help prolong your hearing.

“Test the noise around you with

the ‘one metre rule’. If you need to

raise your voice to talk to someone

one metre away, the sound level is

likely to be hazardous to hearing.

Insist on wearing personal hearing

protection such as earplugs, earmuffs

or both remembering that everyday

equipment, such as lawnmowers and

power tools may be loud enough to

negatively impact your hearing.

And of course, create a routine of

getting regular hearing checks.”

Still no decision on future of ‘needless eyesore’

• By Stu Oldham

OFFICIALS ARE looking at

ways to improve a now rockstrewn

beach some neighbouring

residents say is blighted by a

needless eyesore.

The city council this week confirmed

it was investigating options

for improving the amenity

value of Clifton Beach but that

no decision has been made.

City staff are preparing a

proposal for Environment

Canterbury after officials from

both councils met to discuss the

future of the beach last week.

The proposal will include an

assessment of environmental

impacts, costs and time frames,

in response to that meeting, a

spokesperson confirmed.

The move is the latest since the

Redcliffs Residents’ Association

in August urged the council

to clean up what it said was

left after work on the rock

revetment protecting Main Rd

and supporting the section of the

Coastal Pathway.

The association says rock previously

buried up to 4m underground

was insufficiently buried

when the excavated material was

returned to the beach.

Tide and weather have since

exposed rocks along a stretch of

beach that has been sandy for

as long as many residents can

remember, it says.

Association secretary Dr Pat

McIntosh said the wait for a

plan to remediate the beach was

“frustrating.”

They do not appear to have a

plan, and I’m afraid we may have

another summer like this.”

The association was also frustrated

by the council’s responses.

Initially, council staff said

the rocks are naturally occurring

and would eventually be

consumed by the sandy beach,

she said.

In November, the council acknowledged

it was an unforeseen

result of the work but could not

be tackled during penguin nesting

season, she said.

The prospect of further work

seemed to slow when the council

said it needed archeological and

cultural assessments before it

could start, she said.

The association understood

remediation, whether that meant

scraping or sifting out the rocks

to a reasonable depth, might

prove costly, she said.

“But it was their mistake and

is their responsibility to put

right.”

It was the association’s position

the council had some work to do

before it met the conditions of

its consents, and the beach was

restored, she said.

The Star sought an interview

with the council. In a written

response, a spokesperson said it

had no non-compliance reports

from any of the agencies that

issued its resource consents for

the project.

Asked what advice it had as to

the potential impact of rocks on

the beach, the spokesperson said

the “naturally occurring rocks”

were an unforeseen consequence

of construction.

The spokesperson later confirmed

that meant the council

had no advice at the time of the

works, or after.

Asked about the estimated cost

of removing the previously subsurface

rocks, by option considered

since the issue was identified,

the spokesperson said “no decision

has been made yet as to what the

preferred option may be.”

That was also the response

when asked whether the

remediation time frame has been

affected by the need for cultural

and archeological assessments.

OPINION 25

The scourge of the pokie machines

From the

editor’s desk

Barry Clarke

POKER MACHINES have been

in the spotlight this week with

revelations of how much money

they are sucking out of the

economy.

The New Zealand Institute of

Economic Research says $445

million could have been pumped

into the retail sector in 2018/2019

if the money hadn’t spent on the

pokies.

That would have created jobs

and kept the economic wheels

turning. The NZIER analysis

found the increased retail sales

would generate an additional

1127 full-time equivalent jobs

for 1724 workers, worth $50m in

wages and salaries.

The study was commissioned

by The Salvation Army and

Problem Gambling Foundation,

two organisations which see the

downside of poker machines

in the form of families unable

to pay household bills and buy

groceries, and addiction.

The study focused on class 4

poker machines – the ones in

bars and clubs. Casino pokies

don’t come under this umbrella.

New Zealanders spend around

$900m a year on the pokies.

There is nothing wrong with

poker machines if you can afford

to lose, which is the benchmark

of all gambling.

A study I read some years ago

on pokie machines pinpointed

people play certain machines

for the sound they make, a

deliberate ploy to trigger what

sound attracts to a particular

personality.

The hospitality industry relies

heavily on poker machines

for income, which keeps staff

employed. Many bars would

go under if it wasn’t for the

machines. It also points out

the large amounts of money

which go to community groups,

generated by pokie spending.

Many councils around New

Zealand have been in the process

of reducing the number of

gaming machines by placing

restrictions on transferring

gaming licences when a bar

closes or moves.

In an ideal world, the pokies

would disappear in the lower

socio-economic areas. Like the

fast food brands, they know they

have a ready-made market.

The chance of the jackpot

with your last $20 is a huge draw

for many.

People in the hospitality

industry tell me benefit day is

one of their best when it comes

to poker machine spend.

But that doesn’t help buy

food for the kids, which is very

sad. – barry@starmedia.kiwi

Taxpayers’ Union spokesman

Louis Houlbrooke said it was

fair for ratepayers to expect at

least 40 hours a week from their

elected representatives.

“When we say we think that

councillors in Christchurch

should provide 40 hours a week

from looking at the salary they

Coker’s hours of work was

scurrilous and not journalism.

She is an excellent councillor,

wider Christchurch.

More to the point would

have been to challenge the

several councillors whose

Christchurch is negligible.

I do know councillors who

work near to the claimed 60

hours a week (that is a daily

workload for five days a week

from 8am in the morning to 7pm

at night with an hour for lunch,

year in year out), but they are few

The funding will go to fencing and planting on the banks to help provide

CCC has undertaken work to add curves to the stream and

re-contour banks to make them favourable for native plants

years, including diabetes

and heart problems. In

2002 he was diagnosed

with a rare and incurable

blood plasma disorder. By

July 2005 he was receiving

dialysis treatment for

kidney failure. He had his

lower right leg amputated

as a result of complications

from diabetes before dying

of heart failure on August

13, aged 63.

August 14, 2011 – Polar

blast sweeps the country.

New Zealand’s heaviest

snowfall in decades closed

airports and schools, forced

the cancellation of buses

and trains, caused electricity

blackouts and cut off

many communities across

David Lange

the country. Weather

watchers described the

storm as ‘a once in a

lifetime event’. While the

South Island was hardest

hit, with widespread power

outages and numerous

school, airport and road

closures, normally milder

areas of the North Island

were also severely affected.

Power was cut to around

4000 homes in South

Taranaki, Whanganui,

Manawatū and Wairarapa.

Wellington saw snow down

to sea level for the first time

since 1976. Even Auckland’s

CBD got a dusting

– for the first time since the

1930s.

August 15, 1945 – VJ

Day. Japan’s surrender

following the detonation

of atomic bombs over the

cities of Hiroshima and

Nagasaki ended World War

2. More than 200,000 New

Zealanders had served during

six years of war, and

more than 11,500 had died.

News of the Japanese

surrender arrived in New

Zealand at 11am on August

15. As with VE Day in

May, VJ Day events were

regulated by officialdom.

Sirens sounded immediately,

a national ceremony

was held, and local celebrations

followed. Once more

there were parades, bands

playing, thanksgiving services,

bonfires, dances and

community sports meetings,

and again there was

a two-day public holiday.

In Auckland, people began

to enjoy themselves the

moment the factory whistle

sounded, drinking, dancing

and scattering confetti.

Then rowdy elements

began throwing bottles,

windows were smashed

and people were hurt. By

evening, 51 had been taken

to hospital and an estimated

15 tons of glass littered

the streets.

OPINION 29

week in our history

August 16, 2008 – Evers-

Swindell twins defend Olympic

rowing title at Beijing. While

Kiwis had high expectations of

their rowing squad at the Beijing

Olympics, few expected identical

twins Caroline and Georgina

Evers-Swindell to successfully

defend the double sculls title

they had won in Athens in 2004.

No duo had ever won this event

twice at the Olympics. Television

viewers watching the final

cheered as the Evers-Swindells

launched a withering finishing

burst, then groaned as they

apparently just failed to catch

the German scullers. The British

were also within centimetres and

commentator Peter Montgomery

called the New Zealanders

in third. By next morning, he

had re-recorded his commentary

– the Kiwis had won gold by

1/100th of a second. New Zealand

won another four medals

that day, which was soon dubbed

‘Super Saturday’.

August 17, 1942 – One-hundred

and eighteen New Zealand

prisoners of war died when

the Italian transport ship Nino

Bixio was torpedoed by a British

submarine in the Mediterranean.

60

The ship was hit while

%

transporting

Allied POWs from Libya to

Italy. Crammed aboard the Nino

Bixio were almost 3000 POWs

Caroline and Georgina

Evers-Swindell

captured in North Africa, including

more than 160 New Zealanders.

In spite of extensive damage,

the Nino Bixio did not sink. The

ship was towed by an escorting

destroyer to Navarino in southern

Greece, where the dead were

buried. The Nino Bixio survived

the war and visited several New

Zealand ports during its postwar

career as a freighter.

August 18, 1971 – Deadline

for Vietnam pull-out announced.

Prime Minister Keith Holyoake’s

statement in Parliament that

New Zealand’s combat force

would be withdrawn before the

end of the year coincided with

a similar announcement by the

Australian Government. By the

end of the year, New Zealand

combat troops had left their Nui

Dat base and the services medical

team had vacated Bong Son.

The training teams and Saigonbased

support staff followed in

December 1972. The last RN-

ZAF flight out of South Vietnam

in April 1975 carried the New

Zealand Ambassador.

August 19, 2012 – Three New

Zealand soldiers were killed in

Afghanistan. A Humvee taking

a patrol member to see a doctor

at Romero base in Bamiyan

province was destroyed by an

improvised explosive device.

The soldiers were killed instantly

– Corporal Luke Tamatea, 31, of

Kawerau, medic Lance Corporal

Jacinda Baker, 26, of Christchurch,

and Private Richard

Harris, 21, of Pukekohe. Baker,

a recipient of the Chief of Army

Commendation, was the first

New Zealand servicewoman

killed as a result of enemy action

since 10 nurses drowned when

the transport ship Marquette

was torpedoed in 1915. Tamatea

and Harris were serving with

2/1 Battalion while Baker was

part of the 2nd Health Support

Battalion. A memorial service

was held at Burnham Military

Camp on August 25 before the

bodies were released to their

families for individual funerals.

WITH MORE and more people

in Christchurch choosing to

travel by bike, it was excellent to

learn last week that the

Government is contributing $125

million to our major cycleways.

This money is coming from

the pot of funding the Government

set aside for shovel-ready

infrastructure projects, and it will

help to stimulate jobs and investment

in the wake of the Covid-19

lockdown.

The funding announcement really

is a win-win for Christchurch.

This is not only a boost for

our local economy. It is also a

huge boost for our efforts to promote

active modes of transport

– cycling in particular.

When the earthquakes forced

us to re-imagine the city, the

community clearly told us that

one of the things they wanted to

see was more travel choice and

safer travel options.

To meet that desire, city council

has been working to develop a

network of major cycleways that

Acting Mayor

Andrew Turner

Funding for cycleways

a win-win for city

interconnect and allow people to

safely cycle where they want to

go.

We have been closely monitoring

cycling numbers in the city

since we started building these

major cycleways, and it is great to

be able to report that in the last

12 months the number of people

cycling at the seven locations

where we monitor numbers has

increased by almost 20 per cent.

It is encouraging to see that trip

numbers for the annual count

across all of the locations have

increased 80 per cent since they

began in 2016. Getting more

people cycling is one of the keys

to addressing climate change,

creating healthier communities

and reducing congestion on our

roads.

By committing $125 million

towards our cycleways projects,

the Government has really shown

its support for our efforts to

encourage cycling and that is sees

the value in the investment that

we are already making.

FAVOURITE PLACES: LAWRENCE

There’s nothing like local travel tips

Over the next eight weeks

we will showcase great

spots around the South

Island as we are making

great strides to see more

of our own backyards

through the eyes of locals.

After all, there is nothing

like getting travel advice

from a local. Quentin

Currall, of Lawrence,

explains why you should

visit his home town

What I love most about

Lawrence:

That it’s compact and

picturesque, but isn’t just a

tourist place – it’s a ‘‘real’’ town, a

proper rural service centre.

What most people don’t

know about Lawrence:

That two lions escaped from

a circus visiting town in 1978.

They can be viewed today at the

Otago Museum.

A great area to stay in is:

The town itself. Lawrence is

perfect for exploring the wider

area as the town has everything

you need and there are all types

of places to stay, including selfcontained

vans at Gabriel’s

Gully, boutique bed and

breakfasts, the motor camp and

motels.

The best way to start the

day:

A walk around the Gabriel’s

Gully interpretive track, preferably

with two dogs, followed by

making an espresso at home using

Bean Jazzed coffee beans (from

Lawrence, of course).

For a great night out:

Come along to the Scottish

Country Dance group – per

head of population we have more

people dancing in Lawrence than

in Edinburgh.

Favourite place/s to eat

and what you always

order?

Choose any of the three cafes

in town to enjoy a breakfast out

(I’m a morning person). You

won’t be disappointed.

Top experience not to be

missed:

The Weatherstons daffodils in

spring. Hundreds of thousands

UP THE WALL: Lawrence’s

picturesque main street

has many quirky elements

to discover, like this vintage

homage to the town’s Clutha

Gold Cycle Trail.

PHOTO: JOHN COSGROVE

JAVA DRIVE: Lawrence has several great options for a relaxed

cup of coffee and catch-up. PHOTO: JOHN COSGROVE

of daffodils at the site of an old

brewery.

Top place to walk is:

The Town Domain – the

wooded hillside overlooking the

main street. The initial trees were

planted on Arbor Day in 1892.

It is a wonderful piece of mixed

woodland.

Every time of year has its

special attractions – in autumn

there are long drifts of different

coloured leaves on the paths

so you can tell when you are

moving from areas of birch to

beech to oak to chestnut to ash.

The cool shade in summer

is very relaxing after a hot day.

The varied greens bursting out

Lawrence

in spring lift the spirits and, in

winter. I love the patterns of the

bare branches and the clear views

through the trees.

Experience you’ve always

wanted to give a go but

never got round to:

I’ve often thought about

entering my unmodified 24-yearold

Toyota Hilux (407,000km)

in the Lawrence Quarter-Mile

Sprint. I’d probably be finished

by tea-time.

Best kept secret:

You’ll just have to come to

Lawrence and find out for

yourself.

WINE

EXPECTATIONS are a funny

thing.

Naturally, I try to avoid them

when I’m tasting, as they could

cloud one’s judgement and

impartiality.

I know the identity of the wines

in a tasting, but they are always

masked and in random order: this

is dubbed “single blind tasting”.

My regular tasting duo

of Collins and McLaren are

informed of the wine style and

vintage spread, but know neither

the identities nor order in which

they are served: this is “double

blind tasting”.

The average price of today’s

wines created an expectation of

class, which was borne out in the

glass.

FOOD 33

Hashing up a breakfast of champions

Corned beef/silverside

isn’t everyone’s cup

of tea and it’s often

a textural thing. But

leftover corned beef

makes for an amazing

fry-up the next day,

which crisps it up nicely.

In fact, forget leftovers,

these recipes are worth

cooking corned beef for

by themselves

Corned beef hash

8 servings

Ingredients

3 tbsp butter

3 cups potatoes, diced

1 cup red capsicum, chopped

½ cup onion, chopped

500g corned beef, cooked/cubed

1 tbsp Italian seasoning

4 eggs

¼ tsp salt (optional, as corned

beef is already salty)

¼ tsp pepper

Pinch chilli flakes (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 200 deg C.

In a medium sized oven-proof

skillet, melt butter then add diced

potatoes. Cook 5-7min, until the

potatoes are tender and slightly

crispy. Add capsicum and onions,

and cook 4-6min until tender.

Add the corned beef and cook

until warmed and slightly brown.

Crack the eggs on top of the

hash. Place the skillet in the oven

and bake for 8-10min until eggs

are set. Season with salt, pepper

and pinch of chilli flakes.

Corned beef hash

breakfast cakes

10 servings

Ingredients

1.2kg Desiree potatoes, whole,

unpeeled

350g corned beef, roughly

chopped

2 tbsp wholegrain mustard

¼ cup finely chopped chives

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup plain flour

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp butter, melted

Fruit chutney, to serve

Directions

Boil potatoes for 25-30min or

until tender. Drain. Cool for 10min.

Roughly smash potatoes (so that

they are still chunky). Set aside for

30min to cool completely.

Add beef, mustard, chives, eggs,

and salt and pepper to potato.

Stir until combined. Place flour

into a separate bowl. Using ¼

cupful of mixture at a time, shape

potato mixture into 8cm patties.

Refrigerate for 2hr or until firm.

Lightly coat patties in flour.

Preheat a non-stick pan over

medium heat. Combine oil and

butter in pan. When sizzling, add

patties. Cook for 3-4min each side

or until golden. Serve with chutney.

GARDENING 35

Don’t put the gumboots away just yet

IT’S THAT time of the year when

gardeners are yearning for spring

– and it’s just around the corner.

In many areas, it’s still very cold

and soils are wet so you may need

to don the gumboots before you

head out to the back yard.

August is an excellent time for

planning your new season garden

and completing your planting of

deciduous ornamental and fruit

trees.

Continue to harvest winter

maturing vegetables and

where the soil is friable (easily

crumbled) and not too wet, sow

seeds of beetroot, carrots, onions,

peas, radish and spinach.

Continue to cultivate soil in

preparation for early spring

planting by chopping up and

digging in any green manure

crops. This will significantly

improve the organic content of

the soil. If you haven’t grown any

green manure crops, then add

in compost and mix well with

existing soil.

If possible, try and raise the

planting areas to 100-120mm

above the existing ground level.

Drainage will be improved and

soils will warmer quicker in

spring if you do this.

Winter flowering annuals will

be at their best and late flowering

annuals such as cineraria are now

beginning to bloom. Continue

last plantings of alyssum,

calendulas, cornflower, larkspur,

lobelia, pansy, snapdragon,

stock, violas and wallflowers.

These flowering annuals are also

perfect for growing in containers

and provide instant colour in

the garden. Start preparing your

summer flower beds as they can

be planted out towards the end of

next month.

It’s cropping time for

many citrus; late mandarins

(clementine), lemons, navel

oranges, grapefruit and limes.

While seminole tangelos look

very attractive on trees, you will

need to be patient as they won’t

be sweet enough for eating until

October/November.

Give pip and stone fruit trees

a spray of copper oxychloride so

they start the new growing season

in a healthy state. Complete

pruning of kiwifruit as they will

commence growing next month.

Feijoas should be pruned

to “thin cut” their typical

dense branch growth. This

enables better light penetration

throughout the bush and

ultimately increased fruit

production next season. Young

strawberry plants will be in active

growth already.

Pinch out any flowers that may

appear as plants will not form

healthy berries until well into

spring. Apply copper oxychloride

Red sorrel for salads

RED SORREL is a wonderful

salad green and vegetable.

The bright green leaves with

contrasting dark maroon stems

and veins add colour and taste

to salad mix or micro mix

blends.

It has the same sharp, tangy

flavour as regular sorrel.

This red rascal adds flavour

and depth to salads dishes, in

sandwiches or even as a pizza

topping to give an interesting

combination of flavour.

Used either on its own with

balsamic and parmesan, or

blended with other leafy greens,

it’s a must for any vegetable garden.

Red sorrel must surely be

related to the common French

sorrel which can quickly become

weed-like.

When, where and how to

plant

Sow seeds in spring in trays or

directly into the garden.

This plant does readily seed,

so once you plant it you will

never need to buy seed again.

It prefers a moist well-worked

soil in full sun. It is hardy to

frost, snow and wind.

TASTE: Red sorrel is not to

be confused with french

sorrel that come become

weed-like.

MAINTENANCE:

It’s time to

sharpen the

blades of your

mower so that

your lawn gets

an even cut.

Do the last of

your pruning,

especially roses.

to help maintain plants in a

healthy state.

Complete the pruning of rose

varieties that were very late

dropping their leaves. While

plants are dormant, apply a

copper oxychloride and/or

horticultural oil spray to ‘clean

up’ any overwintering pests or

diseases. The addition of fresh

compost around existing plants

will greatly benefit early spring

growth.

In most parts of New Zealand

there is little grass growth in

August. However, it is not too

far away. Get your mower blades

sharpened and identify any

problem areas in the lawn to be

rectified in spring/early summer.

In wet shady areas, there is often

significant moss growth which

will usually disappear over the

hot dry summer months.

However, you may want to over

sow these areas with fresh law

seed from October onwards.

SPRING IS JUST around the

corner and when it arrives

asparagus will send you the

signal.

If you are going to grow your

own asparagus you need to know

it’s a long-term crop.

In the first two years you won’t

ornamental shrubs and trees.

Site preparation is critical to the

success of these plantings so avoid

areas that are exceptionally wet,

unless you are planting specimens

that specifically grow in these

conditions.

Add compost to all planting

sites and cultivate soil thoroughly

before planting. Allow enough

space between new trees and

shrubs for full development. Be

guided by local plantings in parks,

friends and neighbours gardens

when considering what to plant.

Weather dependant, August

can be an outstanding month

for bulbs in the home garden.

daffodils, hyacinths, jonquil,

lachenalia and muscari, should be

either in bloom or not far away.

A good trick is to mark the best

performing varieties with small

bamboo stakes as you may wish

to lift and divide those once bulbs

are dormant.

Give asparagus time

Plant one or two-year-old

crowns in early spring.

Soak the crowns in warm water

for about an hour before planting.

Dig a trench about 30cm long

by 30cm deep with a raised ridge

in the centre.

Summerfield

takes new car to

Catlins victory

• By John Cosgrove

A SPIN in the first stage and

encountering slippery roads at

times did little to hamper the

speed of Christchurch driver

Matt Summerfield.

He won the 20th Catlins Coast

Rally title on Saturday at Owaka,

winning by just under 40sec

from Andrew Graves, of Gore.

Summerfield’s crew changed

the settings of

his car early

in the day and

that led to him

getting in front

and not being

headed.

“It was an

excellent day

overall. It

started off a

bit interesting when we had a

really big spin in the opening

stage [Puaho] so we had to tone it

down and chip away at Andrew

Graves’ lead,” he said.

Trailing back in third spot

overall, 10sec behind Graves and

Waikuku driver Robbie Stokes

(Ford Fiesta AP4) at the end of

the first stage, Summerfield put

his head down and started chipping

away at the lead.

By the end of stage two, the

26km-long Catlins Valley run,

Summerfield had passed the

faltering Stokes, whose car had

suffered an oil leak and he had

retired, and pared back Graves’

lead to just 8.7sec.

At the first service break at

Owaka after stage two, Summerfield’s

team quickly changed

some of the settings in the car

and he started to make good

gains from then on.

While admitting he tweaked

his speed back a little bit for the

next three stages, Summerfield

still managed to increase his lead

to 46sec by the end of the 24kmlong

Tawanui stage four and took

it out to 52sec on the short 15kmlong

Cannibal Bay stage five.

Graves pulled 20sec back on

the final 36km-long Romahapa

stage as Summerfield looked to

maintain his lead and bag the

win. He won by 38.8sec.

They have stunning roads to

today was very strong. I

a few times before so I knew he

would be fast, he showed that in

“We only got it at the start of

“It’s a bit odd. We have never

Vibrant Veloster joins long line of coupes

I KNOW LIFE often means

disappointments but it will take

me a bit of time to get over missing

out on a drive of Hyundai’s new i30

N fastback – a high-performance

car based around its hot-hatch

stablemate.

See, the turbocharged 2-litre

manual was a casualty of the

coronavirus level 4 lockdown, I was

due to have it within that period

but it has since been seconded to

duties in other parts of the country.

That aside, the other Hyundai

models I was scheduled into have

arrived, and a week with the latest

generation Hyundai Veloster

almost made up for not stepping

into the i30 N.

The Veloster has been around

since 2012, and has just undergone

a major transformation. Saying

that, the one element that makes

the Veloster standout from the

crowd hasn’t been changed. What

appears to be a traditional twodoor

coupe is actually a three-door.

Yes, there are two doors on the

passenger side and just one on the

driver’s side.

The concept was first introduced

with safety in mind, the rationale

being that when children are seated

in the rear they can only exit from

the footpath side of the vehicle,

egress to the road is denied. Bear in

mind, too, that the Veloster is only

a four-seater.

Some might say the design of

the Veloster is outlandish, I’d say

it is bold yet trendy, it is fresh and

with an aggressive body and with

vivid colours to choose from,

the Veloster certainly makes a

statement. The evaluation car was

finished in a matte gun metal grey,

it drew a lot of attention during the

time it was in my care.

The Veloster arrives with two

engine options – a 2-litre naturally

aspirated unit that develops

110kW. Or else there is a 1.6-litre

turbocharged option – the 150kW

engine that powers several other

Hyundai and Kia models.

The evaluation car was the

latter, and it is an engine I’m quite

familiar with, it is no outright

powerhouse like the engine in the

i30 N, but it is a feisty little unit and

stands out for its honesty and fussfree

behaviour. Although it must

be said there is genuine exhaust

sound, there’s a constant throb

under load and an enticing crackle

between gears.

When the Veloster first

appeared, it was Hyundai’s first

full-production vehicle with a

dual clutch gearbox; that type of

transmission is still used, although

it now gets seven gears that can

be manipulated through steering

wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

In terms of driving, DCT units

can be treated much like a normal

STYLISH: The Hyundai Veloster is characterised by a short,

squat rear quarter.

HYUNDAI VELOSTER: Bold wheels add to its aggressive looks.

automatic transmission, the big

difference is that in itself it works

like a manual but without a manual

clutch and, of course, there’s no

power-robbing characteristics

of traditional torque converter

system.

The result is a quick shifting unit

that doesn’t load the engine, power

is clean, and with a strong torque

figure (265Nm) and available low,

and all of the way between 1500

to 4500rpm, the Veloster turbo is

a quick-reacting car which is no

slouch against the stopwatch.

It will lunge to 100km/h in

7.5sec, which will satisfy those

who are happy with moderate

performance, but for me the

big surprise is the mid-speed

performance, it will scorch through

a highway overtake (80-120km/h)

in 4.2sec, made possible through

solid turbo boost and quickshifting

ratios which are ideal

for the wide cross-section of our

driving styles and journeys.

On the subject of figures,

the Veloster turbo is rated by

Hyundai with a 7.1-litre per

100km combined cycle fuel usage

average. At 100km/h I recorded an

instantaneous readout of 5l/100km

with the engine working over freely

at 2000rpm.

I guess if you explore the

turbo boost frequently it will be

hard to match Hyundai’s claim,

• Price – Hyundai Veloster,

$52,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4250mm; width,

1800mm; height, 1409mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1591cc, 150kW,

265Nm, seven-speed dual

clutch automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.5sec

• Fuel usage – 7.1l/100km

and with just a 50-litre fuel tank

you need to be mindful fill-ups

may come around quicker than

expected.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed the

power and strength of that wee

engine, it is delightful and provides

the fun factor when you feel the

need for a quick burst, taking into

account that several drive modes

allow the driver to choose how the

car behaves, from economical to

sport.

In terms of handling, the

Veloster feels sharp up front with

definite turn-in. Sport specification

Michelin tyres (225/40 x 18in)

have high-grip properties and

combined with a fully independent

suspension the car feels well

attached to the road.

Ride quality isn’t jeopardised by

a definite firming of the dampers

and springs and at just 1.4m tall

gravitational movement in a corner

needn’t be considered.

The Veloster turbo is only

available in one fully-specced

level – Limited. It is loaded with

goodies such as full leather, heated

and cooled seats, heated steering

wheel, head-up display, satellite

navigation, keyless entry and

ignition, and all the other bells and

whistles that make up Hyundai’s

top level trim spec. It also gets a full

safety suite of technologies.

Hyundai has had a long

history of producing two-door

coupes, even though you could

argue the Veloster is essentially a

three-door. When I first started

writing about cars in 1988, one of

the first I drove was the Scoupe,

Hyundai’s first sporty car, that

transformed into what Hyundai

called simply Coupe around 1996,

the Tiburon followed, then in 2012

the Veloster first landed in New

Zealand.

That history has served

Hyundai well, the Veloster is a

beautifully-made car and one

which is both fun and exciting. It

dares to be different with its styling,

but that is part of its appeal, if

you are wanting to stand out in a

crowd, at $52,990 ($45,990 nonturbo),

it’s a relatively affordable

way to make a statement.

Home

& Property

EvEry Thursday

If you have just bought your

first home or already own a

property, then the answer to

this is yes.

Purchasing a home is one

of the biggest investments you

may make during your lifetime.

It is, therefore, necessary

to decide who will be the

benefactor/s of your property

and belongings should you

suddenly pass away. To do this,

you need to create a will. A will

states who receives what in the

event of your death.

According to the Public Trust, over

50% of New Zealanders do not have a

will. Young people, aged from 25 to 39

years, who are financially independent,

feature highly in this area, and yet they

are a group more likely to indulge in

adventurous holidays and take part

in risky extreme sports. Accumulated

assets of this age group might include

a bike, car, TV, house, and furniture,

along with a vast range of electronic and

digital gear.

With the arrival of a family, having a

will in place is even more essential and

yet, according to the survey taken in

2014, only 30% of 25-40 year-olds, with

children, have a will in place.

A will not only legally takes care of

the property, and the monetary side

of things but can also state who will

take care of children in the event of an

untimely death.

What happens if there is no will

The lack of a will can create problems

over who will benefit from the estate -

this is especially important if there are

children, de facto relationships, children

from previous relationships, family

members with addictions, or where a

business is involved.

Where there is no will, the estate goes

into ‘intestacy’, which means a court

will appoint an administrator, who

does the same job as an executor, to

manage the estate. The administrator

has the authority to act on behalf of the

deceased and applies to the High Court

for letters of administration (power to

administrate the estate).

throughout Christchurch

CHECKLIST FOR

SELLING YOUR HOME

MAKE SMALL FIXES

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes, and correct

the flaws that are most egregious (if affordable) or can

be relatively easily fixed—from repairing cracks in the

walkways to repainting dingy walls or oiling creaky

hinges.

SET A PRICE

A real estate agent will give you a market analysis free

of charge or commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the market, then

ask to see listings for properties similar to yours that

have sold in the past six months.

Check out comparable listings yourself in the real

estate section of your newspaper or on websites.

Then decide whether you want a quick, easy sale or

the highest possible price.

CLEAN & DECLUTTER

Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks, and “stuff”—

toss it, donate it, give it away, sell it at a yard sale,

or put it into storage—so the house seems more

spacious and buyers can imagine themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start showing your house, keep

the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens weeded,

rooms spotless and clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR OPEN DAYS

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh flowers or

bowls of fruit, bake a batch of cookies for the homey

smell, open the drapes, keep pets out of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO YOUR OWN BUILDING

INSPECTION

It may save you time, especially with older homes,

to identify—and potentially solve—problems your

buyer’s inspection will discover later.

Homeownership:

should you make a will?

The Administration Act 1969 provides

a code to be followed that ensures

the estate is administered in order of

priority. (Check out Wills at www.

communitylaw.org.nz)

Save time and money

Before meeting with your lawyer, and

to help save time and money, decide

in advance how you want to distribute

your will – determine who will receive

what.

You can also create a DIY will online,

but if the distribution of your property

is complicated, you may need to contact

a lawyer for additional help.

For your will to be valid and legally

binding it must be signed in front of two

witnesses, who also must sign it. The

witnesses are not in any way responsible

for what is in the will or its execution.

Four steps to creating a will

1. Nominate an executor – the person

who will manage the distribution of

your property.

2. Choose how you want to be buried

or cremated, and how you want your

funeral to be held, i.e. small and private,

at a church, or in a garden. Make sure

family or friends know in advance what

you want to happen, as the reading of

the will may not be before the funeral.

3. Appoint a guardian/s for your

children (if under 18) and your pets.

Discuss this with prospective guardians,

so they are prepared and understand

their responsibility.

4. Decide who will receive what and

how much; this may include money,

property, and personal belongings, as

well as selected charities.

Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Act 2016

Outline for amendments

to the Christchurch

Central Recovery Plan

Notice of approval by Minister

for Greater Christchurch

Regeneration

Pursuant to section 31 of the Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Act 2016, the Minister for Greater Christchurch Regeneration has

approved an Outline for Christchurch City Council to develop draft

Amendments to the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan (CCRP).

In accordance with section 28 of the Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Act 2016 the Outline sets out the process by which the

Amendments will be developed together with the scope and overall

intent of the Amendments.

The CCRP seeks to promote both a world class stadium/multi use

arena (CMUA) and a vibrant inner city residential living environment,

however, noise modelling work suggests that these aspirations may

be difficult to reconcile in respect of noise from the CMUA. Other

than some limited provisions for acoustic insulation in neighbouring

properties, the CCRP does not currently provide the necessary

guidance on how to address or resolve this, or how these objectives

might both be achieved.

The proposed amendments to the CCRP are therefore intended to:

A. clearly articulate the aspirations of these projects;

B. identify how these aspirations should be most appropriately

resolved; and

C. as necessary or appropriate, direct amendments to the relevant

resource management documents including the District Plan to

establish a clear and certain planning framework that reflects that

resolution.

The draft Amendments would apply to land between the four

avenues. It is likely that as the Amendments are developed the

geographical area to which they would apply will reduce, with a focus

on the area surrounding the CMUA.

The process adopted to develop the draft Amendments will ensure

that opportunities are provided for community engagement and

involvement. These opportunities are set out in the Outline.

The approved Outline for the Amendments to the Christchurch

Central Recovery Plan can be viewed on the webpage

https://www.ccc.govt.nz/canterbury-mu-arena or please telephone

941 8999 to request a copy.
