Iconic Kaikoura Cup to move to Addington

THE time-honoured Kaikoura

Cup harness race meeting will

be transferred to Addington

Raceway due to Covid

restrictions.

The two-day meeting at the

South Bay Racecourse was set

down for Kaikoura on October

31 and November 1 and usually

attracts crowds in excess of

5000, many of whom travel up

from Christchurch.

IT TOOK eight years to

complete, including a six-month

delay caused by Covid-19, but

the $16 million Ravenscar House

Museum will finally open its

doors next month.

The museum on Rolleston Ave

is the vision of Christchurch philanthropists

Susan Wakefield and

her late husband Jim, who gifted

the new visitor attraction to the

city through the Ravenscar Trust.

Their son Steve Wakefield is

now chairman of the trust overseeing

the project.

The global pandemic has had

an impact on the project, making

it harder to import new lift

components from Italy and a

replacement glass panel from

China. The delays pushed the

museum’s original 2018 completion

date back and cost an extra

$3 million. It is now set to open

on November 8.

The facility will display the

Wakefields impressive collection

of paintings, decorative arts,

furniture and antiquities.

The museum will house a

unique collection of 110 paintings,

dating back to the 19th

century, including five Colin Mc-

Cahon’s and 10 pieces by Frances

Hodgkins, plus works from

Ralph Hotere and many other

New Zealand artists.

The Wakefields began

collecting art in the late 1980s.

Their large collection was

originally displayed at their

home on Whitewash Head in

Scarborough.

The couple had planned to

However, the Kaikoura

Trotting Club committee has

decided it will be transferred to

Addington this year.

“It is one of the biggest

decisions in our history,”

club president Ben Smith

said.

“We have been racing on the

all-weather track there for 68

years and have never had to

consider such a situation.

their collection to the city,

but the February 22, 2011,

earthquake damaged the home

beyond repair and the land was

red-zoned. The Wakefields eventually

opted to rebuild the house

at 52 Rolleston Ave, but instead

gifted the land to the city council

in 2015, which then gifted it to

the museum following public

consultation.

“But we have to be pragmatic.”

Smith said the lack of any

detail from the Government

about alert levels in the lead-up

to the November meeting meant

they had little choice.

The committee is just a

small group of volunteers and

we looked at every option but

we had too many questions

about running the meeting

at Kaikoura at level 2 so the

decision was made to go to

Addington.”

They will race on November 1,

featuring a 13-race programme,

just eight days before the New

Zealand Cup.

“We know a lot of people are

going to be saddened by what’s

happened, but we are obviously

“If you look at the experience in

the United Kingdom and the United

States, even in the UK where they

have vaccination rates that are a bit

more than ours, they are certainly

getting plenty of admissions into

“Even with really good vaccination

rates, we still have to expect

some people will end up in hospital,”

he said.

“Of course we still haven’t got to

90 per cent, it seems quite a long

way off. There’s still quite a lot of

Currently 50 per cent of the

CDHB executive director facilities

Dr Rob Ojala said in the event

of a significant outbreak in Canterbury,

Parkside Ground Medical

would provide a dedicated space to

treat patients.

He said the CDHB and the

ministry had worked closely and

with urgency to convert the former

at Christchurch Hospital into the

ward. The AMAU had relocated to

the new Waipapa building last year.

The facility will provide additional

Canterbury aims for 90 per cent vaccination

Part of the upgrade includes

improving ventilation.

Ventilation is being altered so

that air moves from the central

staff area towards the patient bed

areas, making the staff areas safer.

Facilities and engineering manager

Terry Walker said it would

result in improved airflow.

“Two large fans are being installed

outside the ward to extract

large amounts of air from grills at

above the patients’ bed heads, and

pass it through HEPA filters to

safely exhaust to the atmosphere,”

Walker said.

The last time Canterbury DHB

cared for Covid-19 patients was

in January, when two people who

had travelled from overseas were

transferred to the hospital from

MIQ.

death in infected people.

Currently 80 per cent

of the eligible population

nationwide have had their

first dose, while 50 per

cent are fully vaccinated.

Only 42 per cent of the

total population is fully

vaccinated.

“It’s a huge job on a tight

Mum wants answers over son’s death

• By Chris Barclay

A GRIEVING mother is

desperate for justice after

claiming her three-year-old boy

died needlessly because a fatal

stroke was misdiagnosed.

Ethan Tuo Brown died in

Christchurch Hospital’s intensive

care unit on September 7 after

his life support was deactivated.

A month on, Michelle Tuo’s

anguish was palpable.

“As a mother who has now lost

a child, it breaks my heart than

my son died in vain because of a

doctor’s negligence,” she said.

“I sincerely hope the relevant

Ministry will intervene to monitor

and investigate, and bring

justice to Ethan and me.”

The tragic chain of events

began on September 4 when

Tuo took Ethan to a medical

centre after he collapsed at home

around 9.40am.

The previously fit and healthy

boy regained consciousness after

about 10 minutes but he was

unable to talk or straighten his

body.

Tuo said a doctor diagnosed

seizures and told her to take

Ethan to Christchurch Hospital.

According to Tuo’s time line,

Ethan was wheeled into the

emergency department about

11.40am.

Tuo said the ED doctor agreed

with the seizures diagnosis and

sought to reassure the mother by

saying it could take a “long time”

for the body to return to normal.

Although Ethan was drowsy

and unable to eat, drink, walk

or talk Tuo said they were sent

home about 4pm.

The doctor came in with two

printed sheets of paper . . . it had

detailed instructions for me if

Ethan had another seizure at

home,” Tuo said in an email to

The Star.

The doctor also simply said

that if Ethan had another seizure

within 24 hours or if the seizures

last more than five minutes to

call for an ambulance.

“If it (the seizure) lasted less

than five minutes, at first, make

sure Ethan’s head would be safe

and place him on his side. After

that call the (hospital) phone

number and inform them,” Tuo

said.

The other document was an

appointment – two weeks later

– for an electroencephalogram

to measure electrical activity in

Ethan’s brain.

“I looked at these two pieces

of paper and I was still worried

about Ethan because he still

seemed very sick,” Tuo said.

“I said to the doctor: ‘Are you

sure I can take my son home?’

The doctor said: ‘Yes, you can

take him home, don’t worry,

many patients have seizures, it

takes time to return to normal.”

Tuo said she checked Ethan

regularly from the time they

returned home and at 5.45am

on September 5 he could not be

woken.

“His whole body was very cold

with no breath or heartbeat. His

lips were dark and eyes closed,”

she said.

Ethan was rushed to Christchurch

Hospital and about 11am

two doctors told her Ethan had

suffered a posterior circulation

ischemic stroke which meant the

blood supply to his brain had

stopped.

He was placed on life support

until the machine was turned off

at 11am on September 7.

Tuo has spoken out, believing

Ethan could have been saved

had his illness been accurately

diagnosed.

“I think Ethan would have survived.

Ethan lost more than 10

hours of precious time that could

have saved his life because the

doctors misdiagnosed the stroke

as seizures,” she said.

Tuo said if doctors had treated

Ethan seriously, responsibly and

“thought harder” on September

4, he could have celebrated his

fourth birthday on September

25.

The Canterbury District

Health Board’s chief medical

officer Dr Helen Skinner said a

review of Ethan’s treatment was

under way.

“Our team will be contacting

the family to discuss the review,

and once confirmed, the findings

will be communicated to the

family and any appropriate

external organisations,” she

said.

“On behalf of the DHB, I

express my deepest sympathy to

the young boy’s whanau for their

loss.”

Long list of creditors owed $1.2m by

CREDITORS owed $1.2

chairman of Waitaki District

Health Services, which he left

two years ago.

Allott’s report said First

Design, registered in 2012, had

accumulated losses of just over

$1.2 million. The failure was due

to it being funded by so much

debt.

A creditor issued a statutory

demand for an outstanding

debt. A compromise proposal

was put to creditors to try to

avoid liquidation but Allott said

creditors had rejected that and

he was appointed.

Assets are estimated at $38,032

but debts are claimed against

those assets.

The company’s fixed assets

are subject to encumbrances

totalling $1,134,230,” Allott

noted.

His first liquidator’s report said

the liquidation started recorded

They are PlaceMakers

The total owing to secured

creditors is $1,290,948.

Debts owing to preferential

creditors were put at $24,000

but the unsecured creditors is

sorts of houses,” they said at the

time.

The Canterbury team prided

itself on being able to design and

build homes that fit perfectly

with what their client had asked

for, they said.

“Dealing with customers on

designing their dream home;

it’s such a large purchase for

anybody, and you’re involved in

designing something for them

that meets their needs.

“To walk them through

that process, at the end of the

day, the ultimate is delivering

a house that exceeds the

expectations of our clients,”

the pair said then.

THE CITY council is being

accused of penny-pinching

in a struggle to make local

government more accessible

during the pandemic.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community

Board

member

Andrei

Moore

offered to

help the

council

meet its

Zoom costs,

which he

understood

to be $15

a month, after the budget was

cited as a reason the council will

not allow board staff to record

public meetings and post them

to its website.

Members of the public were

prevented from watching the

board’s meeting on Tuesday

after staff decided they did not

have the capacity to add more

people to the Zoom meeting,

which 14 people attended.

Under the Covid-19

restrictions, members of the

public are not able to attend

board meetings in person.

If staff were able to record and

upload footage to the council

website in the same manner as

council meetings, this problem

would have been avoided,

Moore said.

“Public have (on Tuesday)

been denied access to a public

meeting where public money is

spent.”

City council head of

community support,

governance and partnerships

John Filsell said recordings

are not a service the council

provided.

“Correspondingly, there is

no mandate, budget or other

resources to make a recording

of the appropriate quality and

manage the data recorded to the

standard required,” he said.

Filsell said transparency

was not a problem because the

minutes of all public meetings

are available on the council

website. Moore said minutes

gave an insufficient overview

of meetings because they did

not give detailed descriptions of

debates leading up to decisions.

“If we’ve got a recorded Zoom

meeting, anyone can watch it

from home and see what the

board do, how we do it, and how

we make our decisions.”

Board members are allowed

to make private meeting

recordings to share on noncouncil

sites if they have the

approval of the board chair.

Moore had offered to record

meetings himself to make them

accessible on

Facebook,

but board

chairman

Mike Mora

would not

grant permission

for

this.

Said Mora:

“Everybody

that’s on the

Mike Mora

Zoom meeting has to agree. I’ve

had feedback from people that

don’t want it to go out.”

This included both board

members and members of

the public, who were worried

posting footage to a platform

other than the council website

could open “a can of worms.”

Members of the public who

were speaking on controversial

local issues would be made

vulnerable, he said.

“I think people would be

reluctant to complain in a

recording,” said Mora.

Iconic city buildings recognised

The Edmonds Band Rotunda.

The Richmond Club.

Ōtautahi Community Housing Brougham St.

THE PRISTINE Edmonds

Band Rotunda, one of the

city’s most revered earthquake

casualties, has struck a chord

with judges scrutinising entries

for the annual Civic Trust

Awards.

Now resembling its original

bearing by the Avon River on

Cambridge Tce thanks to a $1.5

million restoration project, the

category 2 heritage building

built in 1929 earned rave reviews

for the city council.

Written off after the February

22, 2011, earthquake, a painstaking

rebuild which started in

March 2020 was completed in

August.

The trust commended the

city council for its excellent

restoration of a significant city

landmark ahead of the awards

function at St Barnabas Church

in Fendalton tonight.

The trust received a total of 12

nominations for consideration.

Nick Rogatski’s restoration

of a heritage character house at

232 Main Rd in Moncks Bay,

designed by architect Samuel

Hurst Seager and built in 1913,

was also recognised.

Only a handful of the English

Arts & Crafts movement, bungalow-style

houses remained

after the earthquakes.

The new Richmond Club

building, an Otautahi Community

Housing Trust complex

on Brougham St and the Te Koti

Te Rato apartment at Rehau

Marae were all acknowledged as

projects which made a “material

beneficial change to the city

environment.”

Work to rebuild the

Richmond Club, which was

established in 1888, was

completed earlier this year, and

recognised for its architectural

design and contribution to

the revitalisation of the local

community.

The 90-unit OCHT development

welcomed its first residents

last year impressed after being

built to New Zealand Green

Building Council’s Homestar 7

specifications.

It was recognised for excellent

repurposing for an existing

building into a marae-based

housing development that also

boosts the community.

The restoration of the former

Hereford Chambers at 167

Hereford St, which had been

threatened by a council fix or

demolish order in 2020, was

also commended by the judges.

In spite of the quality of the

entries the panel opted not to

select a supreme award winner

this year, an accolade reserved

for projects of distinction.

Alison Discovered Gut & Digestion Support ADVERTISEMENT

KORU NUTRITION

For Alison and her husband,

nothing is nicer than jumping

in a motorhome and cruising

to a favourite fishing spot

sounds like a wonderful

weekend away for just about

anyone, but for Alison - it

requires a little thought.

“I love getting out of the

city and exploring nature. For

many, wandering through the

woods doesn’t always sound

pleasant but for us, simply

Live Probiotics in a beautiful

gut balancing formula. A

shelf without the need for

refrigeration; which is great

for when we’re travelling.”

“Before we head off up the

coast on a fishing weekend,

I like to prepare everything

in the motorhome so we can

leave first thing. It’s actually

nice to be able to plan an early

morning ‘rest stop’ - it’s a bit

of a habit now. But I’m not

complaining about having

regular bowel movements.”

“Things just move smoothly

and my stomach is beautifully

comfortable. I am absolutely

delighted with Koru Gut

continue supporting my gut

with Koru Gut Restore which

is great for my wellbeing &

Aotearoa: Does it fit the South Island?

• By Andrew Marshall

A NGAI TAHU leader has called

for a rethink on a movement to

change New Zealand’s official

name to Aotearoa, saying it risks

overlooking the South Island.

A name change has been

brought to the fore by the Māori

Party, which launched a petition

calling for restoring Māori

names for the country, as well as

for towns, cities and other places.

Otakou

marae kaumatua

Edward Ellison

said while

he agreed with

the Māori Party’s

initiative

in principle,

Edward

Ellison

it would be “a

rash move to

rush forward

SUBJECT: Māori Party co-leaders Rawiri Waititi and Debbie Ngarewa-Packer launched

the petition which also aims to use te reo Māori names for all towns, cities and places by

2026. PHOTO: MARK MITCHELL

in a change of that substance and

nature.”

At the core of his reservations

is the history of the name

Aotearoa, which many people

did not realise originally referred

solely to the North Island.

He had been heartened to see

Aotearoa catch on in an informal

sense over the years, but was

reticent about a more formal

arrangement.

“I’m really proud of it to see

it on our passports and other

licences, but it’s another quantum

leap to adopt a name that’s

grown on us through osmosis,

as opposed to a really significant

decision to change the name of

the country.”

Ellison said a more commonly

used title in the south was

Aotearoa me Te Waipounamu,

which encompassed both major

land masses.

If a name change was on

the cards, a more thorough

discussion would be needed to

ensure an inclusive name was

selected.

opinion. Email responses

“Otherwise we feel sort of

forgotten about, and it’s just

another form of, at the worst, say

colonisation.”

However, he gave the Māori

Party “full marks” for bringing

the subject into the national

consciousness.

“That’s partly what their

role is, to shock the people

into thinking about these

things.”

On the wider subject

of changing the names of

settlements and natural features,

he said Ngai Tahu had their own

process to do similar work in the

South, which was more gradual

than what the Māori Party

suggested.

He was not sure at the

national level whether it was a

better option to change names

sooner by legislation or allow

them to evolve over time, but

was happy with their local

process.

“It’s a bit slower, but they do it

when the people are ready.”

THE IMPACT of cannabis use

among expectant mothers is

the focus of ground-breaking

research led by a genetics expert

at Canterbury University.

Funded by the Canterbury

Medical Research Foundation,

the year-long study aims to determine

whether using the drug

during pregnancy can lead to

health effects already associated

with tobacco.

Dr Amy Osborne, a senior lecturer

in the School of Biological

Sciences, has already established

that heavy cannabis use has an

impact on human DNA, with

the effect stronger in people who

also smoke cigarettes.

That research, published in

May last year, has been followed

by this USA-inspired probe to

discover if a woman’s cannabis

use can alter their offspring’s

DNA.

“We know smoking tobacco

during pregnancy is harmful,

but the problem is a lot of people

are using cannabis for morning

sickness because they think it’s

safe,” Osborne said.

“In the US it’s also being

used as an opioid replacement

therapy for pregnant women, a

replacement for hard and more

illicit drugs: ‘You’re not going

to do heroin while you’re

pregnant, but here, have some

cannabis’.”

Osborne said some of the

research Stateside assessing

the effects of cannabis use during

pregnancy revealed some

behavioural impacts similar to

tobacco.

Her latest study, which starts

data already available through

the Christchurch Health and Development

Study, an investigation

which started more than 40

years ago and originally included

1265 people.

Osborne has already sourced

DNA data from cannabis users

GROUND-BREAKING: Dr Amy Osborne is able to study the effect of cannabis use by

pregnant women thanks to funding from the Canterbury Medical Research Foundation.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

Thursday October 7 2021 The Star

University of Bristol in the

United Kingdom.

The UK data is vital because it

covers DNA from the parent and

their children because the CHDS

information doesn’t include the

parents.

“We can use the UK data to inform

what we’d be looking for in

the New Zealand cohort. We can

streamline what we’re looking

for so it means we’re more likely

to get a better idea of what’s happening

at the molecular level,”

Osborne said.

“In New Zealand our sample

sizes are a lot smaller so if

we want to statistically show

associations – and it’s all about

statistical power in genetics –

the more samples you have the

more likely you are to detect

something.”

Ultimately, Osborne would

like to develop a mine of information

from pregnant New

Zealanders.

“It would be amazing. We

haven’t explored that as an option

yet but depending on what

we find it may be that’s naturally

where our research goes. Then

again that requires clinicians,

epidemiologists, nurses and a lot

of people recruiting as well,” she

said.

Osborne emphasised the study

was impartial regarding cannabis.

Pain management could

benefit from cannabis

• From page 13

“We’re not trying to say ‘cannabis

is bad for you or cannabis is

good for you’. It’s really important

to make the distinction that this

is basic biology, basic biological

research,” she said.

“What we’re trying to do is

understand a little bit more of the

impacts it (cannabis use) might

be having.

“Whether that’s the detrimental

impacts that come with

long-term use or whether it’s

the medicinal and therapeutic

impacts, we just don’t know.”

Osborne said while cannabis

use can be detrimental for heavy

users, it could be beneficial

regarding pain management, the

treatment of chronic illnesses and

end of life care.

“If we can put some empirical

meat on the bone and understand

a bit about the molecular pathways

that may or may not be involved

we can start to understand

a lot more.”

Osborne is one of eight medical

researchers to benefit from the

Canterbury Medical Research

PEOPLE ACROSS the city were

busy on their phones during

September reporting litter to the

council.

THe ‘Snaptember’ promotion

by the Snap Send Solve antilittering

app encouraged

residents to help clean-up their

community by reporting any

issues they saw with dumped

rubbish, graffiti, overgrown

vegetation and abandoned

shopping trolleys.

It proved popular as the 3237

notifications received via the

app to council were up by 20 per

cent from the same month last

year (2668).

However, reports of litter

from other sources including

phone and email did not see any

increase.

Starting in the first week

of September, a 76 per cent

increase in litter reports was

recorded by council staff.

THe following week the

emphasis was on graffiti and

this resulted in a 153 per cent

increase in reports, while the

third week had a massive 1600

per cent increase in notifications

concerning overgrown

vegetation.

However, as only one

overgrown vegetation incident

was reported in 2020, the

17 cases reported that week

resulted in the 1600 per cent

increase.

The fourth and final week of

the ‘Snaptember’ promotion

asked people to report

abandoned shopping trolleys

dumped in their communities.

Numan said this particular

problem was already covered

OPINION 17

‘Don’t hate the player, hate the game’

Green MP

Chloe

Swarbrick

writes

about

instincts

and

political

decisions in the age

of Covid-19

THERE’S A phenomenon in

psychology called the “cognitive

miser,” which tells us that our

brains crave simplicity and

shortcuts.

A lot of the decisions made in

politics play to these instincts.

We’ve seen it in successive

governments under-funding our

health, education and housing

systems for the sugar high and

short-term poll bump of trickleup

tax cuts.

We see it play out – intentional

or not – in the drafting of news

headlines. In a busy world, those

short sentences become a proxy;

a few words become the sum

total of a person, their position

and their politics.

Studies have shown that

approximately 60 per cent

of social media users are

comfortable sharing articles they

haven’t actually opened, let alone

read.

It makes sense. We’re

overworked, overtired and

drowning in information

exposure. Don’t hate the player,

hate the game. What about

changing the game?

Last week was Mental Health

Awareness Week. I reflected on

my 2017 maiden speech, where

a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed

23-year-old lamented the

mental health crisis, but more

particularly, our inability to

put our finger on some of the

more egregious systemic drivers

of it: Loneliness, insecurity of

housing, employment and one’s

future.

I referred to this old joke:

There’s a dog on the riverbank

who sees a fish and asks: “How’s

the water?” To which the fish

replies: “What water?”

The most fundamental realities

of our lives can be hard to see,

which makes them even harder

SLOAN

to talk about.

That makes them hard to

challenge and even more

difficult to comprehend as the

consequences of decisions made

by others.

Poverty, homelessness and

the climate crisis are not

inevitabilities. It is within our

power to change the rules that

produce those outcomes.

In 2018, the Government’s

Mental Health and Addiction

Inquiry, He Ara Oranga,

confirmed the premise of this

argument. Clearly, we need more

front-line mental health support,

but we’re not going to address

the growing pipeline of issues

unless we address security and

stability of incomes, housing

and community connection.

No amount of talking is going

to solve the issue of people

living below the breadline.

A massage won’t undo a

deeply unsustainable 80-hour

work week. Meditation and

mindfulness won’t secure your

tenancy.

That’s where things get

difficult and frankly, political. A

crisis in slow motion. Don’t hate

the player, hate the game.

This is why I’m so angry at the

attempts to wedge oversimplified

mental ill-health narratives into

the story that we’re somehow

in dire need of a return to the

business-as-usual, pre-pandemic

way of life. These attempts have

been so dogged that the Mental

Health Foundation was driven to

release a statement about the lack

of truth and substance to them.

They’ve even been peddled,

shamelessly, by the Leader of the

Opposition.

But those shilling these

warped and disingenuous

arguments got their wish.

OPINION 19

NZ treated as ‘tax haven for the rich’

•From page 17

On Monday, the Government

announced the beginning of the

end in their commitment to the

elimination strategy.

Delta had officially shifted

from an immediate emergency

to one “playing out in slow

motion, with less bang, more

data and trends, out-of-sight-outof-mind,

impacting particularly

those without platform or

power.”

Official data shows that more

than 80 per cent of cases are

Māori and Pasifika, the same

demographics that medical

professionals have critiqued the

Government’s response for and

to.

Supporters argued that “the

economy” couldn’t sustain

elimination anymore. I ask those

people to reflect on exactly what

they think the economy is.

The economy is all of us and

the things we produce. It’s the

stuff we exchange.

While Members of Parliament

point to GDP figures as the

source of truth, I ask they reflect

on the words of the economist

who invented the measure,

Simon Kuznets.

He warned of GDP’s

shortcomings in measuring

“welfare,” or the distribution,

value and incalculable costs of

those transactions.

STRUGGLE: Chloe Swarbrick says a strong public health response requires a strong

economic response to ensure everyone has what they need to stay the course.

PHOTO: GETTY IMAGES

A strong public health

response to anything – Covid,

climate, housing, mental health,

drugs – requires a strong,

equitable economic response to

ensure everyone has what they

need to stay the course.

The Government’s

endorsement of unconventional

monetary policy and a lack of

intervention in fiscal policy has

seen house prices supercharged

under Covid to more than $1

million average across the entire

country.

There are hundreds of

thousands of dollars in unearned

capital gain on every

single individual property that

could have paid for “staying the

course” through a tax on those

gains. Or we could reflect on the

Pandora Papers. They confirmed

what we already know, and

have known, since at least 2016’s

Panama Papers.

Aotearoa New Zealand is

treated, internationally, as a

tax haven for the rich and

powerful.

At the end of last year, as we

debated incremental changes

to the far-reaches of our tax

system, then-National Party

spokesperson on finance,

Andrew Bayley, said the

quiet part out loud: “There is

such a thing as legitimate tax

avoidance.”

He was speaking to how we

create rules that enable powerful

and wealthy people to shirt their

resources around into places and

spaces that mean they don’t end

up contributing to the society

that they extracted that wealth

from.

Don’t hate the player, hate the

game. We don’t live in a game of

Monopoly. We can and should

change the rules when they don’t

work for the majority of us.

Our local democratic system

is under attack. The alignment

between The People’s Choice

and the current Government

suggested by Jo Davies, The

People’s Choice chairperson,

(The Star, September 30) is an

attempt to dominate our local

political system.

Suggesting The People’s

Choice existing/intending

candidates lining up for 2022

local government elections could

stand under the NZ Labour

Party banner or as independents

leaves the voter foxed into

believing they voted for an

independent when they have

voted for a Labour candidate.

Election by deception.

Where is the integrity for

the voter? I’m a fifth term

elected representative and stand

as an independent for a good

reason.

Politics do not belong in local

government level. An openminded

elected member sees the

issue and seeks the right fit for

an issue, not controlled by blockvoting.

A Government/council

regime would be a takeover of

their local issue.

Some good People’s Choice

elected members are marred by

block voting. Joint Government/

council alignments risk bully

boy politics taking over local

decision-making processes. I’ve

experienced enough of local

politics to say: “No political

interference in our local issues.”

The ratepayer is more

empowered when politics are

more. The current push to align

councils/Government of the

day risks “see-saw” reaction

we see in general elections

and undermines transparent

consultation with ratepayer/

taxpayers alike.

What Garry Moore and

more than a passing relationship

Barry may agree

that no political

editor has ever had

to make decisions

in his/her own life,

let alone the lives of

New Zealanders that

this Government

has had to make. In

fact, no Government

in New Zealand has ever been

confronted by the magnitude of

problems this Government has

been confronted with.

Not only have they made hard

decisions, but also daily they

have stood in front of us and the

fourth estate to explain why.

They knew all decisions that

put the nation ahead of the

individual would create inequity

and heartbreak.

They knew the festering pack

of naysayers, self-appointed

experts, anti-vaxers, political

opponents and stage-seekers

would sneer and yap “they’ve

created a climate of fear, listen to

their weasel words.”

The biggest fear I have had

is that the intensity of the

pressure will become unbearable

for them and cause them to

make the wrong decisions.

Chance to have your

say on coastal hazards

TOMORROW MARKS the

start of an initial five-week

engagement period with our

communities about coastal

hazards and how we might

respond to them.

Some of you will recall that

we started making changes to

the District Plan that included

coastal hazards back in 2015 as

part of the fast-tracked District

Plan Review process set out by

the Government.

My recollection of that time

was that this created a pressurecooker

environment, which was

unsatisfactory to everyone concerned.

The Government allowed

us to carve out coastal hazards

from the fast track process and

deal with it separately. And that’s

what is happening now.

We have released a new

Coastal Hazards Assessment

Report that provides the most

up-to-date scientific information

we have about the risks we face

as a low-lying coastal city.

This time, however, instead of

going straight to a plan change,

we have released an Issues and

Options Paper that considers

different approaches to changing

the District Plan to address

coastal hazards.

After we receive feedback on

the options, staff will then develop

a proposed draft amendment

to the District Plan (April/May

next year), and we will consult

on that before we formally notify

the plan change.

I want to stress that we are

at the very start of the plan

change process. No decisions

have been made yet and nothing

will change in the District Plan

until we’ve been through what

will be a very extensive engagement.

There will be lots of opportunities

along the way for you to

give feedback and influence the

decision-making. You can

find out more information at

ccc.govt.nz/coast.

This is a vital issue for our

city, and I encourage everyone

to get involved, both in terms of

understanding the nature of the

challenges we need to address

and how we do so.

DO YOU HAVE a box of photos

at the top of the wardrobe or

under the bed?

Do you think no-one would be

interested in your old photos?

Think again.

Christchurch City Libraries is

running the annual Christchurch

photo hunt during October.

The popular event is part of the

Christchurch Heritage Festival

from October 9 to 25.

Take your

photos into

your local

library and

they will scan

and return

them or you

can upload

photos to

discoverywall.

nz

The winning photograph from

last year’s photo hunt (shown

top right) was taken by Barbara

Newcombe’s father Peter Basire

in October, 1953.

It shows a British European

Airways Vickers Viscount 701

near the hanger at Christchurch

Airport – surrounded by admirers.

“We really liked how

this particular photograph

combines being artistic with

telling a great story about

the crowds inspecting the

planes following the London-

Christchurch Air Race,” says city

council head of libraries Carolyn

Robertson.

The image captures an event

very much of its time and the

great excitement of Christchurch

being the final destination of the

race.

The air race is a well-known

event but it wasn’t well represented

in the digital heritage collection

so this image, along with the

12 others contributed as part of

this collection, provide the public

with an insight into this historic

event.”

Another notable find last

year came from Ron Cone, who

brought in a box of old photos

he had taken of everyday life and

work around Christchurch.

Some of Mr Cone’s photos

show crowds gathered outside

the State Theatre, an aerial shot

of Papanui High School in the

1960s and the intersection of

High and Cashel Sts in 1967.

They’ve now become an

important part of the libraries’

digital collection.

“Thanks to Mr Cone we now

have precious photos of how

Christchurch was, and some

really interesting colour photos

from the 1950s and 60s,” Ms

Robertson says.

Mr Cone’s collection of over

80 images are available to view

online at Canterbury Stories.

Add lime before planting tomatoes

• By Henri Ham

YOU KNOW when the weather

starts to warm up, it’s time to

plant your tomatoes.

Tomatoes are a must-have in

any garden, there is a feeling of

satisfaction as you pick a fresh

tomato off your vine … plus

homemade pasta sauce? Yes,

please.

Traditionally Labour weekend

is the time to plant your

tomatoes but anytime from

September to early January is

okay.

Tomatoes thrive in a sunny,

sheltered spot, protected from

strong winds. It’s important to

switch up your planting positions

and plant your tomatoes

in a different spot from the

previous season. This just helps

prevent any disease.

Switch it up by planting

tomatoes in pots or if you’re low

on space you can plant cherry

and dwarf tomato varieties in

hanging baskets, add some marigolds

and herbs to your hanging

baskets to attract beneficial

insects as well as to ward off any

unwanted pests.

Tomatoes aren’t a fan of soil

with a low pH, if it’s been raining

cats and dogs in your area, I

recommend adding a bit of lime

to your soil prior to planting.

Lime provides a great source

of calcium which encourages

healthier and larger fruit and

helps prevent blossom rot.

Calcium also helps improve the

soil structure which encourages

earthworm activity.

Garden centres stock a variety

of tomatoes, if you are planting

tomatoes for bottling then

our heirloom mix, brandy wine,

black krim, money maker and

beefsteak are great options. If

you’re after smaller varieties that

don’t require a lot of room and

are great for salads and picking

straight off the vine then

our gold nugget, black and red

cherry and acid-free tomatoes

will do the trick.

Once you’ve decided on your

varieties and your soil prep is

complete, dig a hole approximately

5cm deep and space your

tomato seedlings about 40-50 cm

apart.

If you’re companion planting,

we recommend planting your

tomatoes with basil, marigolds,

onions, cosmos, cucumber, lettuce,

sage and mint.

Avoid planting with brassicas

and corn. Corn is likely to attract

fruit worm. We also don’t recommend

planting your tomatoes

with potatoes as potatoes require

quite a bit of nutrients which

will reduce the growth of your

tomatoes, they’re also likely to

cause blight.

Once planted, spray your

tomatoes with liquid copper to

prevent fungal disease and add

some seaweed to the surrounding

soil to encourage larger and

juicy fruit.

When it comes to watering,

avoid overhead hosing as it could

leave your plants more susceptible

to diseases like powdery

mildew, rust, and blight. You can

retain moisture by adding a layer

of newspaper around your plants

and then cover your newspaper

with pea straw or soil.

Fill your garden

with delicious treats

• By Henri Ham

OCTOBER IS probably

one of the busiest months

in the garden – the jobs are

endless but it’s also a fun

time to fill up your garden

with delicious treats such as

cucumbers, basil, tomatoes

and pops of colour.

General tidy up:

• Mulch your gardens

to retain moisture and

suppress weed growth

• Deadhead flowers to

encourage more growth

• Clean up dead leaves

and twigs as they may be

harbouring disease

• Remove moss from

paths and driveways

• Keep on top of your

weeds

• Clean your tools – your

garden tools will be getting

a workout this season.

Give them a good clean

and apply some olive oil to

prevent rust.

• Feed strawberries and

passionfruit

Cucumbers, capsicums,

chillies, pumpkins,

tomatoes and zucchini –

it’s their time to shine. If

you’re new to gardening

or thinking of giving it a

go – now is the perfect time

to dig in and get started.

If you’re still experiencing

cold snaps and frost in

your area, we recommend

holding off planting your

tomatoes until the weather

warms up.

Kumara, a Kiwi favourite

wouldn’t you say? If you’re

planting kumara this year,

make sure your soil isn’t too

acidic.

Kumara prefers soil with

a pH level of around 6.0 to

6.5 – to get the best of your

crop make sure that the

base of your soil is solid as

this will prevent the roots

from growing all over the

place and encourage more

tubers.

SUCCULENT: It’s now time to get your cucumber

plants in the garden, you will be rewarded when

it comes time to make those summer salads.

Basil and russian

tarragon are a must-have

in any herb garden. Basil

works well planted amongst

your tomatoes to deter

any bugs, apparently, it

intensifies the taste of the

tomato too.

Russian tarragon which is

actually part of the lettuce

family has quite a strong

anise flavour, it works well

with roasts and as a garnish.

Salad planting, keep

planting your lettuce,

spring onions so that you

have plenty in the warmer

months.

If you’re after a berryfilled

summer, start

planting your raspberry,

blueberry and blackberry

bushes now.

Just remember that slugs

are still about, try using a

bait to prevent these little

guys from eating all your

hard work.

Add some colour to your

garden. Cosmos, dahlias,

gazanias, livingstone

daisies and petunias are

popular this time of year

– these varieties are great

for border, bedding and

hanging baskets which is

great for those that have

smaller gardens. Plant some

flowers around your vege

garden too to encourage

those little pollinators.

It’s also time to spray your

roses to prevent any fungal

disease, it’s also a good time

to feed them as they’ll be

growing like crazy at the

moment.

Your lawns will be

growing at a rapid rate this

month, keep them looking

lush by occasionally

applying lawn fertiliser is

a blend of nutrients that

your lawn will love, the

high levels of nitrogen

will encourage thick,

healthy growth and prevent

disease.

Keep an eye out for

broadleaf – if you spot

some make sure to spray

them with weedkiller so

that they don’t take over

your hard work and resow

any patchy areas

Plant whatever takes your

fancy. If you’re a beginner

gardener there’s never been

a better month to start

experimenting.

Kiwis flocking to

digital mental health

services during covid

New research has found a significant

increase in the number of New

Zealanders turning to digital health

services for support during covid.

The uptake of digital mental health

services substantially increased last year

during covid according to new research.

Research findings relating to the New

Zealand tool Just a Thought showed

most users undertook self-guided

courses for anxiety and depressive

symptoms.

The results highlight the utility and

scalability of digital mental health

services, particularly during times of

heightened distress in our population.

Just a Thought wanted to explore how

New Zealanders used their service through

covid and reports they have reached over

30,000 registrations since their launch less

than two years ago.

The major findings from the New

Zealand data below overwhelmingly show

investment in digital wellbeing services

during covid paid off:

• 630 percent increase in website views

• 185 percent increase in course

registrations

• 144 percent increase in healthcare

worker registering

• 65 percent increase in healthcare worker

prescribed courses

Thursday October 7 2021 The Star

Concerns about the mental health

impact of the global health crisis has been

widespread. The study examined the use

of the service before and during the early

pandemic period.

The number of users accessing digital

mental health services increased after covid

arrived yet the demographic and clinical

characteristics of course participants remain

stable.

The findings underscore how nimble and

scalable these services can be during periods

of high demand.

The Just a Thought digital mental health

service provides free access to evidencebased

cognitive behavioural therapy

courses and psychological support for New

Zealanders.

New solution for a better nights

sleep and improved health!

Deep regenerative sleep is so important to feeling and performing our best. A lack

of or poor quality sleep is associated with increased risk for many chronic diseases,

including obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, depression, and many more.

Unfortunately many adults report occasional bouts of insomnia with one in three saying

they suffer from sleeplessness or disturbed sleep on a more chronic basis, to the point

that it regularly impairs daytime functioning.

The good news is an inexpensive, naturally occurring amino acid known as glycine

has been clinically researched in Japan and shown to be highly beneficial in supporting

healthy sleep. Subjects who were given three grams of glycine one hour before bedtime

fell asleep much sooner, as well as exhibited brainwave patterns associated with deep

sleep compared to control subjects who did not supplement. On waking the subjects

who took the glycine woke reporting being refreshed with no indication that glycine

produced a “morning hangover” or any foggy feeling common with those who use

prescription sleeping medication.

Glycine is known to accumulate in the pineal gland and is believed to play

animportant role in “disconnecting” the brain from the body during REM (rapid eye

movement) sleep cycles. Glycine also supports healthy growth hormone (GH) secretion

that is associated with strength, good health and vitality whereas low secretion of GH is

associated with advanced ageing & increased disease.

Other clinical research has shown glycine supplementation to improve memory and

attention in young to older adults.

Spanish researchers have studied the effect of glycine supplementation in 600 subjects

between the ages of 4 and 85 years suffering from osteoarthritis, osteoporosis or physical

injuries. Participants were given 5 grams of glycine in the morning and 5 grams in the

evening. In all cases symptoms significantly improved.

Glycine is a very safe amino acid that appears to be highly beneficial for a quality sleep

as well as general good health.

NOW supplements only use a natural pharmaceutical grade, free form glycine that is

also suitable for vegetarians and vegans. NOW operate one of the most advanced private

laboratories and production facilities in the natural products industry. They promise

they take every possible step to ensure the safety and efficacy of every product they

produce.

ORGANISERS OF the 2022

Otago Community Trust New

Zealand Masters Games being

held next February in Dunedin,

the Dunedin City Council, are

expecting between 5000 and 5500

competitors, events marketing

assistant Ben Anngow says.

The biennial games will

run from February 5-13, with

competitors arriving from across

New Zealand to take part, many

having already taken advantage of

the earlybird fee, Ben says.

“At this stage we are still

accepting overseas entries as

well, in particular from Australia.

However, as we advise, there

is no guarantee the border will

be open, though we are trying

to remain positive in case there

are any changes to the border

restrictions before the games.”

Participants will compete in 64

sports, with new sports including

cowboy action shooting, jigsaw

racing and diving.

Among those taking part will

be former Christchurch resident

and well-known international

sportswoman Joan Harnett-

Kindley. A member of the Silver

Ferns from 1963 to 1971, Joan

was highly regarded for her

skills and natural instincts on

the court. However, it is tennis

rather than netball in which Joan,

now 78, competes at the Masters

Games.

“I have always played tennis, I

love it, but because there was not

much coaching in the early days

netball became my sport,” Joan

said.

Along with her doubles partner

Penny Campbell, who is 72, Joan

has competed in most Masters

Games, with the pair usually

winning gold. Having a tennis

court at her home in Albertown,

east of Wanaka, means Joan is

able to get in plenty of practice,

and she regularly plays two or

three times a week.

Above – Cricket at a previous Masters Games.

She says she and Penny

thoroughly enjoy competing at

the Masters Games.

“We get good tennis. And even

though people are getting on in

years, everyone looks forward to

it. It gives people something to

aspire to, it helps with keeping fit,

and it’s wonderful we are still able

to do it.”

The second-oldest of five sisters,

Joan says their mother always told

them, “Women can do anything

they put their mind to”.

With that in mind, Joan says

she and Penny hope to repeat

their previous successes and

are going for straight wins

throughout the tournament.

Known also for her long

involvement in real estate, Joan

was one of only three women

in the industry in Christchurch

when she joined it in 1972.

“By the time I left Christchurch

at the beginning of 1996, it had

changed dramatically,” Joan

said.

Aside from playing tennis,

Joan bakes and decorates cakes

for special occasions such as

weddings and birthdays. And

while she is looking forward to

next year’s Masters Games she

muses it may be her last gold.

BIG MATCH-UPS THIS WEEKEND

Bulls look to continue winning form

• By Chris Barclay

WHILE RUGBY league’s focus

was further afield in Brisbane

and the NRL final, closer to

home the Canterbury Bulls

opened their revised national

championship in style at Nga

Puna Wai on Sunday.

Currently designated to play

South Island opposition, an 82-6

demolition of the West Coast

Chargers means the Bulls can already

anticipate a title showdown

with opposition from the central

North Island zone.

Auckland is another option

if the city’s three sides are still

able to compete once Covid-19

restrictions are downgraded.

The New Zealand Rugby

League is still determining

whether the Akarana Falcons,

Counties Manukau Stingrays

and Auckland Vulcans can

play after their campaigns were

delayed further on Monday

because they are still unable to

train under amended alert level 3

conditions.

Waikato Mana and the Upper

Central Vipers’ participation is

also in jeopardy potentially leaving

the Southern pool winner

to play either the Mid Central

Vipers or Wellington Orcas on

October 30.

The Bulls, badly beaten by

the Falcons and Stingrays in

last year’s four-team domestic

competition should breeze into

the final on the strength of their

performance against the Chargers

on Sunday.

They host the Southland Rams

Horn back to defend bowls title

A CHANGE of club has enabled

Taylor Horn to defend his

Burnside under-26 lawn bowls

singles title with Auckland-based

contenders unable to challenge

for the crown due to Covid-19

restrictions.

Horn, who represented Mangere

at the annual tournament

in 2020, now competes for the

Cambridge Central in the Waikato,

a switch that enabled him

to spearhead the 30-strong field

of men and women when section

play starts tomorrow.

There were two optimistic

Auckland-based bowlers included

in the competition draw but

Adam Baillie (Port Chevalier)

and Lee Warburton (Homai) had

to drop out when the Government

alert levels were reviewed

on Monday.

Tournament convener Kerrie

Bruce found one replacement on

Tuesday and if another competitor

cannot be sourced byes will

be factored into one of the four

sections.

POSITIVE: Coach Andrew Auimatagi

is focused on the Bulls maintaining a

good level of play.

on Sunday and seven days later

the Otago Whalers also head to

Nga Puna Wai.

Aware more mismatches await,

Bulls head coach Andrew Auimatagi

preferred to dwell on his

rebuilding roster.

“Your focus is on maintaining

a good level of play and we executed

really well, it was a pretty

positive start,” he said.

The average age is under 25 or

thereabouts and at least half of

them are new. There’s only a couple

of guys with veteran status.”

He was one of four Bulls to dot

down twice in the 15-try rout.

The Canterbury women’s team

also made an impressive start to

their competition at Nga Puna

Wai, outclassing the Mid Central

Vipers 38-8.

They were to host the Upper

Central Zone on Sunday but that

clash has been postponed because

the side featuring Waikatobased

players cannot travel.

Bowls Canterbury’s young player

of the year and sportsman of the

year.

Although players from Auckland

and two Cook Islands-based

bowlers invited through a new

initiative this year are missing,

Bruce was happy with the field

after a challenging build up.

“It’s been a trial this year, we’ve

never had so many withdrawals,”

she said.

The inclusion of a trio of

15-year-olds was a positive as the

tournament regenerates, with

Callum Cox (Burnside), Jack

Bonner (Barrington United) and

Cooper Stumbles (Forbury Park,

Dunedin) representing the young

brigade.

Cashmere Technical strive to

protect their silverware collection

on Sunday when Christchurch’s

dominant football club

seek to extend their tenure with

the English Cup to five successive

seasons.

The Mainland Premier League

and Southern League champions

play Christchurch United at

English Park on Sunday after

United beat Selwyn United 1-0

in Tuesday night’s semi-final.

Cashmere Technical advanced

to the Chatham Cup final for

the first time since winning the

trophy in 2014 with a 1-0 victory

over Wellington’s Western Suburbs

on Sunday.

Grass tennis courts a

priority at Wilding Park

• By Chris Barclay

A HISTORIC element of

Wimbledon has taken root

at Wilding Park with Tennis

Canterbury’s headquarters

now featuring grass courts to

succeed their earthquakeravaged

predecessors.

In deference to the sport’s

spiritual home, Wilding Park’s

nine grass courts are based on

the fescue/ryegrass mix traditionally

used at the All England

Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club

in London.

The regeneration of the

grass courts, which replace a

block wrecked by liquefaction

during the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, continues Tennis

Canterbury’s goal of replicating

the surfaces used by the sport’s

grand slam events.

Wilding Park already featured

the hardcourts associated with

the Australian and US Opens,

Yuya Taguchi broke the

deadlock in the 87th-minute, the

first goal Western Suburbs had

conceded in the competition.

“You always want those

chances dropping to the right

player, I don’t think there’d be

anyone as calm as Yuya in that

situation,” said head coach Dan

Schwarz.

Cashmere Technical will play

Wellington’s Miramar or North

Shore United, the other semifinal

is yet to be played due to

Covid-19 restrictions.

Meanwhile, a 92nd-minute

Ollie Sims winner for Selwyn

United against Nelson Suburbs

secured a 2-1 victory which enabled

the club to join Cashmere

Technical in the National League

after Christchurch United had

their progress thwarted by a 4-3

defeat to Dunedin’s South City

Royals.

Cricket

St Albans open the defence

of their premier grade men’s

two-day title at Sumner when

Christchurch Metro cricket gets

under way on Saturday.

The season was delayed for a

week because Covid-19 restrictions

meant an outfield renovation

programme could not be

completed.

Riccarton host Burnside

West University and Old Boys

Collegians and Merivale Papanui

- who replace the relegated

Marist Harewood – meet at

Elmwood Park. Sydenham enjoy

home ground advantage against

Lancaster Park.

with grass now ticked off, mirroring

the French Open’s red

clay of Roland Garros is the

next goal.

There are six court designated

for clay once funding is secured

and until then they will also be

grassed over.

The grass courts should be

used for the first time during

the third round of the men’s

and women’s premier grade

competition on October 31, but

they will not be reserved for

elite players.

“We’re trying to make sure

have everybody in the interclub

season has time on the courts,”

said Tennis Canterbury’s operations

manager Anthonie de

Heer.

However, one court will be

off limits to serve as a feature

court to enhance the club’s

prospects of hosting a Davis

Cup tie.

Thursday October 7 2021 The Star 35

Nissan Navara comes to the rescue

MY WIFE AND I have called it

the week from hell.

Firstly, our power went off

thanks to a corroded wire from

the street. While we thought we

were well advanced in terms of

preparedness – generator, gas

cooker, torches and plenty of

batteries – for 24 hours we struggled

without electricity with an

overnight low of a miserable -5

deg C.

Secondly, the fluctuating power

surge as the wire arced against the

house, spelt the end of one of our

freezers, it was full of frozen food,

quickly defrosting.

Thankfully, and at short notice,

we had a rental delivered until the

time we could buy a new freezer

and have it installed so no food

was lost.

That’s where Nissan’s new

Navara ute comes in. We bought

a new freezer and I used the ute

to pick it up from the collection

depot, I also used the vehicle

to deliver the old freezer to the

Parkhouse Rd recycling centre

along with a dryer that had long

been sitting in the garage unused

and was well past its used by date.

That’s where today’s double

cab ute comes in, it’s not only the

working vehicle with substantial

off-road, four-wheel-drive ability,

it’s the sedate and versatile carryall

that will also whisk families to

all those environments we travel

to on a daily basis and, might I

add, in comfort.

Nissan has just released a new

Navara, well, it’s a new shape with

a major overhaul inside, but the

mechanicals are largely a carryover.

That’s fine, the 2.3-litre

four-cylinder diesel engine is a

cracker in terms of sophistication,

so much so that Nissan must

have the other ute manufacturers

thinking hard about refinement.

The Navara also has a complex

rear suspension; gone are the

old leaf springs that are mostly

traditional with today’s pick-ups,

the Navara has a coil spring,

multiple-link set-up that locates

the live rear axle. It eliminates a

lot of the jiggle you get with utes

over uneven surfaces.

At the other end the twinturbocharged

diesel is rated by

Nissan at 140kW and 450Nm. The

origins of this engine hark back to

Nissan’s early alliance with Renault

and that collaboration shows,

there are high power outputs and

a smoothness that’s hard to match.

There’s no lumpy diesel throb here,

it works away in a soft, silent manner

and is very responsive. Not

only do the power outputs impress

through its 2298cc displacement,

it is also a fuel miser.

Nissan claims a 7.6-litre per

100km combined cycle average.

My time with the evaluation

vehicle required a lot of inner-city

running around incorporating

those tasks I mentioned in my

FOUR-WHEEL-DRIVE: Genuine off-road ability.

NISSAN NAVARA ST-X: Home appliances are easily catered for on the ute’s deck..

introduction. That being the

case, I wasn’t expecting to come

close to Nissan’s claims, but I

did return it to the dealership

with 9l/100km showing on the

readout. On my long highway

run to Hororata and Dunsandel,

a steady 100km/h cruise had the

engine sipping fuel at the rate of

6l/100km instantaneously, the

rev counter pointing to a lazy

1750rpm in seventh gear.

Yes, the ST-X has an automatic

seven-speeder and it, too, is one

of relative smoothness, shifts are

quick and can be encouraged

through a sequential shifting system

at the main gearshift lever.

Another interesting driveline

function is the four-mode

drive-type selector, it ranges

from standard to sport, tow and

off-road, I largely left it in normal

mode, but for those who like to

explore maximum efficiencies

those modes are there to help.

Elsewhere, the Navara is also

very car-like to drive, sure at over

5.2m it is a big vehicle and a trial

to fit into a standard city metered

car park, but it has a purpose

and it’s unashamedly suited for

that. On the deck you can load

the traditional one-tonne, and it

is rated with a 3500kg tow figure

(braked).

In terms of transportation it

will also carry five adults, the rear

seats don’t have a lot of rake but

• Price – Nissan Navara ST-

X, $57,490

• Dimensions – Length,

5255mm; width, 1850mm;

height, 1815mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2298cc, 140kW, 450Nm,

seven-speed automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

9.4sec

• Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

they are easily as comfortable as

any of the competition.

Up front there are heated seats

(full leather trim), and as much

technology as you could expect

from a modern ute. Satellite navigation

is fitted in ST-X models

along with cruise control and full

electrics.

On the highway the Navara

moves quietly and with much

dignity. In terms of handling it

enters a corner with solid turn-in

and little transition of weight. The

rear is far from lively and even

though part of my highway evaluation

was on wet roads, I never

thought the suspension would

let me down in terms of keeping

the tyres gripping well the road

surface.

Interestingly, the Navara rides

on 255/60 x 18in Toyo tyres and

they must be commended for

their quiet operating manner and

effective feedback to the driver.

Nissan has a comprehensive

Navara line-up – single-cab, king

cab and double cab – with two

and four-wheel-drive drivelines

and manual and automatic transmission

options.

The range starts from $41,990

and ends at $67,990 for the flashy

Pro 4X. I drove that model prior

to picking up the ST-X and it

made an immediate impression

on me for its body kit and chunky

tyres, yet, it too, drives in the

civilised manner that this series

of Navara can take enormous

credit for.

The ST-X on the other hand

doesn’t miss out on much to the

Pro 4X, but it is not so in-yourface

in terms of style. That being

the case, I’d easily settle for the

base to mid-grade models.

The new Navara comes at an

opportune time. The Government

tax on utes is set for January

and buyers are flocking to them

to save the extra cost that is expected

to be somewhere between

$2780-$5175.

Nissan assures me supply is

constant and interest in the newcomer

is high. I can see why, it

certainly sits as one of the market

leaders.

I know it certainly arrived in

my driveway at an opportune

time. My wife and I are so

grateful.

Landscaping enhances new

& existing homes

Building in a housing subdivision

invariably means the developer will

require you to submit a landscaping

plan along with your house design, to be

approved before building commences.

Just as important as considering

the features for your home will be

your outdoor setting. Indoor/outdoor

requirements will influence your choice

of house design and how it will be sited

on the section for a sunny yard and best

protection from prevailing winds like the

easterly. Having a second courtyard area

offering shelter from the north-west wind

is also an advantage in Selwyn.

A well thought out landscape plan will

also incorporate off-street parking space

for vehicles while ensuring your home

is attractive from the street. You might

want to factor in parking for a caravan,

motorhome or extra vehicles as well as a

turning circle for safe turning and exiting

your property (a legal requirement for

back sections).

The developer will only want to see a

landscape outline for the part of your

property which will be on view from the

street.

When choosing the design for your

home, address where you want hard

surfaces (driveway, paths and patios),

lawn, play areas and garden beds so it is

suitably positioned on the section. Even if

not all hard surface areas are completed at

the end of the build, knowing where they

will be located will be helpful.

If your build is nearing completion,

autumn is a good time to sow grass as the

cooler morning and evening dew assists

growth. As winter descends on us, ready

lawn is a better option at least at the front

Your backyard could be left until spring

(another good time for seeding a lawn)

if you are happy to put up with the mud

over winter.

When selling an existing home, putting

effort into landscaping your yard could

add value by presenting a good first

impression and attracting buyers.

You need not rip out overgrown

established plants. Selective culling and

pruning can make a huge difference

to the look of a garden. Avoid hacking

everything down low. Instead take out

sprawling branches and thin shoots,

leaving a solid trunk; planting flowers like

lobelia, primula, pansies and polyanthus

underneath for impact. Add a layer of

mulch and spray the lawn for weeds then

follow up with lawn fertiliser to give a lush

green look.

The first thing people see is your home’s

exterior – the cladding, colours and

landscaping. Putting effort into these

features has the potential to add value to

new and existing properties. A garden

need not be masses of work. Planning and

choosing the right plants for the location

and your lifestyle can create a relatively

low maintenance outdoor setting while

enhancing your home.
