Car set alight then teen

gets sinister message

• By Bea Gooding

THIRTY MINUTES after James

Withington’s car was set alight in

the early hours of the morning,

he received a sinister Facebook

message asking if it was “still for

sale.”

The 16-year-old’s 1991 Ford Laser

was torched about 100ms from

his Cotswold Ave, Bishopdale,

home about 3.30am on October

16.

Thirty minutes later the

Facebook message from a fake

account, Serving Burns, arrived,

prompting James to believe he

had been deliberately targeted.

Footage from a neighbour’s

security camera shows an

unidentified person pushing the

car from outside his house 100m

along the road. The person then

spends 30min trying to set it on

fire.

James said police had told

him the Facebook account was

untraceable and they have been

unable to identify the offender

from the security footage.

His vehicle was the third to be

set alight on Bishopdale streets

over the past month.

Desperate push to get Dekken pedalling

• By Bea Gooding

FOR MANY children, learning

to ride a bike is seen as a luxury,

but for six-year-old Dekken

McClintock, it’s a matter of

necessity.

Born with Prader-Willi

syndrome which causes weak

muscles, obsessive eating, and

slow development, the rare genetic

disorder has led to further

complications. Over a period of

time spinal deterioration has led

to him developing scoliosis.

His mother, Rachelle Mitchell,

is now on a desperate mission to

raise $10,000 towards the cost of

a specialised trike in order for

her son to build muscle strength

before it is too late.

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

She said because he was

diagnosed early, there was still

time for him to gain strength

before running the risk of being

wheelchair-bound and undergoing

further operations later in

life.

“Because he has a really low

muscle tone, he can’t sit on a

normal bike and balance as he

doesn’t have the core strength,”

said Mitchell.

“In my eyes, the trike isn’t a

luxury item, it’s a necessity. We

don’t have the luxury of being

able to go to The Warehouse or

Kmart to buy a $100 bike.”

a harness and pedals at the front

rather than the sides.

Dekken would be able to use

the trike into adulthood because

the base had the ability to extend

of converting it to electric in

the future.

“His legs will be outstretched,

them. It doesn’t matter if he can’t

push strong,” she said.

“It will stop the scoliosis from

getting worse as he will get a

healthy blood flow through his

body and it will increase his cardio,

strengthening core muscles.

“If it gets worse he’ll end up

really hunched over making it

more difficult to walk than what

it already is.”

Dekken was born prematurely

at 34 weeks weighing only

1500gm after six weeks in neonatal

care.

He has had seven operations

since then, including a double

hip and femur surgery, and five

surgeries to rectify obstructive

sleep apnoea – a condition which

can cause breathing to stop during

sleep.

Said Mitchell: “He gets tired

really easily and struggles to

keep up with other kids his age.

Because he can’t regulate his

emotions, he gets frustrated at

not being able to do things like

everyone else.”

CAPACitY

As lawyers, we are required to

meet with you and take your

instructions in order to help

you complete the particular

legal task you are planning.

Sometimes when we do this,

we need to take a little extra

time to consider your mental

capacity to make decisions.

Mental capacity is a client’s

capacity to make a decision.

Decision making requires

living that a client:

EXERCiSE thE minD

of the mind that could distort

life • understands the decision their decision making.

SUDOKU - EASY SUDOKU - mEDiUm

they are having to make

• can discuss with us the

possible options available

to them in a way that shows

they appreciate the risk and

or benefit of those options

• understands the impact

that a decision, or the lack of

a decision, may have on them

or their loved ones

• is able to articulate and

discuss all of the above with

us.

It is important to note that

the level of capacity required

isn’t the same in every

situation. For example, to

make a Will, the legal test

is whether the client knows

they are making a Will

and the effect of doing so,

whether they understand the

extent of the assets they are

dealing with, whether they

comprehend the moral claims

which they ought to give

effect to, and finally whether

they are free of any disorders

However, when giving

instructions to complete

Enduring Powers of

Attorney, the test is lower

and is satisfied if a client

understands the broad

consequences of granting an

enduring power of attorney

and can process the relevant

information and appreciate

the nature and effect of the

power they are giving.

Having these discussions can

be difficult. However if there

is a risk that a client’s Will or

Enduring Power of Attorney

or other decision of a legal nature might

be challenged it is wise for the client to

obtain a medical certificate in respect of

their capacity in consultation with their

lawyer.

A failure to take this basic precaution

may cause uncertainty, delay, cost and

distress later on.

If a client is concerned about this risk it

The aroma of biscuits has filled the home of Gianni

Barbafiera since childhood. Moving his wife and

young daughters from South Africa decades ago

in the quest for a safer environment and a more

opportune life, Gianni spends his days working

for Hamilton Jet and his Saturday mornings at the

Riccarton Farmers Market showcasing his variety

of cultural delicacies at his booth, Wooden Spoon.

Referred to as the ‘biscuit man’, we caught up with

him to talk about his customers favourites.

what’s your history with

biscuits?

My father was born in a small Tuscan town in Italy.

He migrated to South Africa in the early sixties,

where he met my lovely mother and my four

siblings, and I grew up.

My earliest recollections, when I was very young,

probably only three or four years old, include

wonderful memories of a weekly home baking

routine. My grandmother employed a wonderful

cook, who would make a selection of biscuits,

my favourites being the flower shaped one with

a cherry in the middle. Baking was part of my

childhood and upbringing.

The nineties were a period of uncertainty in South

Africa, and so my young family at the time, arrived

in New Zealand, ready to re-start our lives.

a biscuit smorgasbord

Most of our early biscuits had an Italian origin,

but not being bound by the restrictions of Italian

traditions, we were free to explore the entire world

of biscuits. Not only Italian Ricciarelli, Cavallucci

and Biscotti, but German Pheffer Küken,

American Snickerdoodles, Scottish shortbread,

English Garibaldis and more.

My wife is the baker and I’m the front of the house.

We pride ourselves on tradition, authenticity and

quality.

any time for a hobby?

Week days are spent with a job I enjoy, Saturdays

are filled with talking with customers who have

become friends, family and I do like to sing in our

zeaLand’S future

Thanks to COVID we are in the middle of a digital

revolution that is changing the way the world does

business. Technology is supporting the industries

and people that are being disrupted right across

society. Yet the tech sector fails to reflect the

diversity of the world it is enabling.

In a committed move to address this long-standing

issue, NZTech campaigned hard for more diverse

candidates to consider standing for its board.

The message was well received and NZTech’s new

board is the most diverse the sector has ever seen,

which puts the NGO in a great position to better

help the tech ecosystem, and New Zealand, adapt

and evolve in the time of COVID.

NZTech is the voice for technology in New

Zealand. It is a not-for-profit, organisation which

brings together 20 tech associations and more than

1500 member organisations which collectively

employ more than 10 percent of the New Zealand

workforce. The companies and people work

together to help create a more prosperous New

Zealand underpinned by technology.

With three Maori tech leaders on the board the

organisation is well placed to evolve to support

better inclusion in the sector. The NZTech board

has seven women with three in their thirties

spread across New Zealand including Auckland,

Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch.

Maori and Pasifika tech success will be a

critical driver of economic well-being for all

New Zealanders in coming years, presenting

opportunities for the development of new tech

businesses, new jobs and the creation of a globally

unique approach to New Zealand tech.

While covid is having a detrimental impact on

much of the economy, the New Zealand tech

sector continues to grow and create jobs.

There are more than 100,000 people employed

in New Zealand in the tech sector with several

thousand new tech jobs created every year.

Tech exports are likely to be the second biggest

export earner for New Zealand in 2020, generating

more than $12billion in revenue last year for the

top 200 tech exporters.

“NZTech is working with the Ministry of Business,

Innovation and Employment on the development

of an industry transformation plan designed to

further increase the growth of the tech sector so

it can help economic recovery with increasing

exports and jobs,” says NZTech chief executive

Graeme Muller.

‘Laser beast’ deliberately

torched on street

• From page 1

Said Senior Sergeant Roy

Appley: “Three in one area

is a concern – it may be an

individual or a group of

people setting cars on fire

deliberately.

“Christchurch is about to

head into summer where

fire is a risk in many areas.

A car fire could cause a

scrub or house fire. Like

Australia or Lake Ohau in

particular – you can see

what can happen when a

fire gets out of control.”

James bought the car,

which he called the laser

beast, less than three

months ago. He had

spent $2000 buying it and

on a new paint job and

other modifications,

earned through his

part-time job at a

bathroom furniture

manufacturing business.

“I was shocked,

I got up at about

4.20am and two cops

were there. My car

was already burnt out and

in pieces by then,” he said.

TARGETED: James Withington’s pride and joy

before it was set on fire.

Roy Appley

His wallet, passport, a

cellphone, work safety gear,

clothes and first aid gear

were also in the

car.

The car was

listed for sale

online.

He and his

friends were rattled

by the fire.

“Now they don’t

even want to park

their car on my street anymore.

It would’ve been different

if someone had just

stolen it. It was just weird

that someone went outside

my own house to do this

and knew it was there.”

new services offered at longestablished

podiatry clinic

For more than 25 years, Charlotte

Podiatry have been providing a full range

of professional podiatry services at their

Upper Riccarton clinic. Over that time,

they have continually kept abreast of

innovations in the profession ensuring

clients receive the most up-to-date

treatment for their feet.

Now, a new Podiatry Assistant has

joined the team. Trained and qualified

in Europe, Agata is providing general

podiatry services, including a new service

the clinic has introduced – Toenail

Reconstruction. A painless cosmetic

procedure, this restores the natural

appearance of nails that may have been

damaged through accident or have

become discoloured or unsightly due to

fungal infection. Lasting six to eight weeks,

the cosmetic nail allows a new, healthy nail

to grow underneath.

Full information on the procedure

can be seen on the Feet First Podiatry

website, www.feetfirst.co.nz.

Another new service being offered

at Feet First Podiatry is the Medi-Pedi,

(medical pedicure), which is a safe,

hygienic pedicure service carried out in

their clinic with sterile instruments.

Recently, there have been reports of

clients suffering from nail infections after

visiting nail bars for pedicures, which were

likely caused by the use of non-sterile

instruments and nail varnishes that had

been applied to multiple clients.

A toenail before and after Toenail

Reconstruction has been carried out.

The cosmetic nail has restored the

toenail’s natural appearance.

As Charlotte explains, in Christchurch

there are no by-laws governing nail bars,

so clients have no protection from any

unhygienic, unprofessional practices.

On the other hand, at Feet First Podiatry,

Charlotte and her team provide an

hygienically clean environment with health

and safety guidelines being followed and

all instruments sterilised by autoclave.

Clients are also invited to bring their own

nail varnish.

Located at 37 Main South Road, Feet

First Podiatry is open Monday to Friday

from 8.30am to 5pm, with late nights

on Tuesday and Thursday to 7pm by

appointment. Off-street parking is

available.

Feet First also runs several satellite

clinics. These are at the Marshland

Family Health Centre, Marshland Road

on Mondays, the Redcliffs Clinic, Augusta

Street, on Wednesday afternoons, and at

Darfield Pharmacy on alternate Fridays.

Complementing the services offered at

Feet First Podiatry is their retail store The

Shoe Room, located opposite the Lone

Star in Riccarton Road. The store offers an

extensive range of specialised footwear for

people that have foot problems, difficulty

finding shoes or simply those looking for

stylish, comfortable shoes.

Opening hours are Monday 10am-

5.30pm, Tuesday to Friday 9.30am-

HIP PaIn? Talk To uS.

If you suffer from hip pain, don’t just put it

down to “old age”. With the right advice and

treatment, you may be relieved to realize

how quickly you can improve.

“Do I need a hip replacement?”. This is often

the first place people’s minds wander to when

they start experiencing hip pain. In fact, it

is this fear that often prevents people from

seeking treatment in the first place.

The reality is that in many cases, the hip pain

is not from significant underlying arthritis

which could lead to a hip replacement.

With this in mind - what is the best approach?

Here are 3 important pieces of advice to get you

started on the pathway to better movement.

1. Invest in a thorough assessment from

a health professional to establish the

underlying cause of your symptoms.

2. Get moving, any movement is positive.

3. Commit to a plan for long term health

of your hips and body.

The team at Freedom Health Physiotherapy

& Pilates are experts at assessing and

treating hip pain. Offering expert assessment,

treatment, specific hip & lumbar programs

and ongoing exercise solutions, they are a

great place to start getting you back to doing

the things you love - for life.

Engine fluids, tyres, battery, belts, hoses

Something often overlooked are Pollen

air that comes into the car, filtering out

pollen, dust, dirt, exhaust fumes and any

Some of the most popular street

While COVID 19 has prevented many

tourists, including locals to travel

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior clients

visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

Ray White offices celebrate 100% clearance rate in Christchurch

AUCTIONS continued to fire for Ray

White offices in Christchurch with

a 100% clearance rate on Friday 9

October – off the back of 16 out of 18

properties selling under the hammer

across the week.

Ray White New Zealand South Island

Regional Manager, Jane Meyer, lauded

the “outstanding” results and said

there was no better example of why it

remained a seller’s market.

“Week after week we continue to see

incredible results for our owners and

it provides further evidence that now

is the time to be listing and selling your

property,” Ms Meyer said.

“To achieve a 100% clearance rate

under the hammer for nine properties

at one event is great in any market

and there’s no doubt the Christchurch

market is red-hot at the moment.

It was an excellent week for Ray White

Morris & Co Principal, Stuart Morris

as he celebrated his own success with

a hat-trick of under the hammer sales,

with two properties also selling prior.

“We had competitive bidding on all

three properties, but the stand-out

was the sale of 17 Epsom Drive in

Rangiora as that auction was brought

forward and yet the bidding was

strong to the end.”

Completing the hat-trick for Mr

Morris was Rangiora’s 39 West Belt

in Rangiora and 451 Johns Road in

Fernside.

Vanessa Golightly from our Papanui

team has also had some outstanding

Auction success recently including

seven bidders on a one bedroom unit at

3/11 Division Street, four bidders on a

new-build in the Highsted subdivision

and another four bidders on a three

bedroom home in Westmont Street,

Ilam. She promotes Auction not only as

an effective way to sell but to buy also.

“In this competitive market you know

who your competition is on the day and

you don’t have to pay a dollar more or

less than the person above you, meaning

you know you are paying fair market

value versus a closed envelope situation

where you could be paying $10,000

more than the person below you.”

To discuss if Auction is the right option

for you please get in touch with one of

our team. We look forward to hearing

from you

Property Management - The Myths VS The Facts

As we all know, rental properties,

landlords and tenants are often in the

headlines, and it’s not always positive!

But, what we must remember is that

often what we are hearing and reading

is in fact only part of the story, and

often conclusions are drawn based on

this limited information.

In turn this means that rental

properties are often a hot topic of

interest which is discussed and debated

furiously, but what never ceases to

astound me is the lack of knowledge of

the facts out there.

As an example there are still a large

number of people out there who

believe that a rental property needs to

be double glazed in order to meet the

Healthy Homes Act which comes into

effect on 1st July 2021. While this was

something that was discussed initially

when the proposal was put forward,

this along with many other facets, was

not passed into law, so is in fact not a

requirement.

Of course as we move towards

the latest Residential Tenancies

Amendments Act coming into effect in

February next year there again seems

to be a lot of confusion out there, and I

am hearing all sorts of comments which

are simply not correct.

As an example I was speaking to a

current landlord recently who manages

their own rentals, they mentioned

that they were really concerned that

when the new legislation comes in, that

the tenants will be able to make any

changes they want to the property as a

matter of right! This is again incorrect,

as while yes, the law is changing, in

that a landlord will not be able to

unreasonably decline permission, the

important thing to remember is that

the tenant does have to ask permission

first, and the landlord can reasonably

set some conditions around the

request.

My advice is, as always, don’t listen to

rumours, instead ask the experts!

And, as I mentioned in my last piece,

Ray White is proud to bring you free

on-line information straight from

the experts’ mouths in our Landlord

Academy which will run each Thursday

evening in November.
