Smooth water ahead for Paul’s passion

• By Tony Simons

THREE YEARS ago, Paul

Clearwater, then 66-yearsold,

retired cabinet-maker, of

Prebbleton, did something he’d

never done before. He started

building a six-metre boat, on his

property.

It was no ordinary boat.

The plans were for a hull that

came with a warning, using

techniques any inexperienced

boat builder should have

thought twice about. That didn’t

deter Clearwater and, on Friday,

it was officially launched at

Lyttelton with friends around to

congratulate him.

have.

on the much needed breakthrough

in catching fire bugs plaguing

the Rolleston area.

CCTV cameras are everywhere

from being mounted

to being strategically

placed in lesser obvious locations.

Catching a fire bug early is

very important.

While the fires in Rolleston

have been relatively small in

Strong leads in bid to catch arsonists

• By Tina Grumball

SECURITY CAMERA footage

has given police a major

breakthrough in their bid to

catch Rolleston arsonists.

Sergeant Richard Van Asch

said footage showed a number of

people leaving the scene of one of

the 10 vegetation fires set in the

past two months.

“We are following strong lines

of inquiry as to some of the

people involved,” he told the

Selwyn Times.

He would not say how many

people or what age they were.

Three more vegetation fires

were lit last week, Rolleston

volunteer fire brigade deputy

chief Graham Peterson said.

They were at Stonebrook

playground, near the Rolleston

Scout Den and beside Three Trees

Learning Centre, next to Foster

Park, he said.

Two fires were reasonably

small but the third by Three Trees

Learning Centre was lit in long

grass.

“It was dealt with reasonably

quickly but it could have had a

lot more consequences. It backs

onto houses and things like that

once again. It doesn’t take long,

especially with things drying out

to change things.”

Peterson urged anyone who

saw something suspicious to

phone the police or 111.

“The quicker we find out about

it, the better,” Peterson said.

Van Asch said it was possible

there was more CCTV footage in

the community which showed the

arsonists.

If that was the case police

needed to see that footage.

Members of the public

could phone 105 or access the

service online to provide the

information.

Lincoln police station.

Vehicle

thefts in

district

detailed

• By Tina Grumball

NEWLY-RELEASED police

data shows 22 cars were stolen in

September across the district.

In the information obtained

by Selwyn Times, the thefts are

categorised by police station areas.

For the Darfield police station,

one vehicle was stolen and not

recovered. For the Lincoln station,

11 vehicles were stolen and only

four recovered. For the Rolleston

station, 10 vehicles were stolen

and eight recovered.

There were no reports of stolen

vehicles for the Arthur’s Pass or

Leeston police stations.

Police also said two offenders

aged 17 and under were charged

with theft of a motor vehicle and

illegal use of a motor vehicle

across those police stations.

Police could not answer what

model of car was most commonly

stolen.

• From page 1

“The hull is kind of like

clinker-built in reverse,” he said.

It’s supposed to allow the boat to

travel more easily through the

water, “kind of like hydroplaning.

The challenge of building

it was something I could not

resist”.

The craft is built completely

of wood, using timber milled

from his own property where

he has lived since he was 12

years old. It also showcases

wood from all around the

world, and no plywood. “The

variety of wood I’ve used is

what makes the boat so special,”

Clearwater said.

“After retiring, I wasn’t simply

going to sit inside the house all

day, so I took on the challenge.

A few hours a day with plenty of

time in between to think about

how I was going to tackle the

next part,” he said.

The project cost him the tips

of two fingers in a workshop

accident, but he has no regrets.

It’s been a labour of love and

appropriately, he has named the

boat Passion.

For timber aficionados, the

streamlined hull is alaskan cedar

on a canadian oregan frame.

The decking is african iroko, a

greasy timber used a lot in boat

building.

“It’s poor man’s teak,”

Clearwater said.

Inside features cypress, also

there are mahogany trimmings

all around.

To top it off, the boat’s wheel

is american walnut with sweet

Passion was launched without

a hitch with about dozen bystanders

applauding as he headed

off towards Governors Bay with

a couple of close mates on board

and, after he returned, he took

more friends out for five-minute

cruises.

Clearwater said he was never

“It’s been well-built and welltested,”

he said.

Clearwater built a dinghy

Selwyn is fastest growing district;

population, economy booming

• By Susan Sandys

SELWYN’S population has

almost doubled in 10 years,

newly-released data shows.

The latest Stats NZ subnational

population estimates also

show the district continues to

be the fastest growing in the

country.

The district grew by 3600 new

residents to 79,300, as of June 30,

which was the largest total number

of new residents anywhere in

the country.

District

council chief

executive

David Ward

presented the

figures in his

report to a

meeting of the

district council

David Ward

last week.

Selwyn is

benefiting from a combination

of great natural attractions,

good planning and a strong

community,” Ward said.

The figure of 79,300 would

likely now have topped over

80,000, he said.

“Just to put that into perspective,

when I arrived here in 2013,

it was 42,000, so it is getting close

to doubling in 10 years. And it’s

also the biggest proportional

population growth in the country,

at four-and-a-half per cent.”

In the surrounding council areas,

Waimakariri grew by 1300

people (1.9 per cent), Ashburton

by 200 (0.6 per cent), while

Christchurch city fell by 700

(-0.2 per cent).

Ward added the district’s

population growth was underpinned

by a continuing strong

economy. The most recent

figures from economic analysts

Infometrics had shown Selwyn’s

economy grew by 6.2 per cent

in the year to June against a national

average of 0.9 per cent.

Selwyn’s economy was supported

by strong dairy payouts,

along with the ongoing housing

boom, strong consumer spending

and tourism bouncing

back from the impacts of the

pandemic.”

Increased

patrols to

combat

pooing dogs

• By Susan Sandys

POOPING pooches at

Darfield, and their owners,

are on the radar of the

district council’s animal control

team.

At last week’s district council

meeting, new councillor Lydia

Gliddon said it was a particular

problem at Darfield.

The district council’s

Dog Control Bylaw 2012

states owners are obliged to

immediately pick up after their

dogs.

“How can we enforce that

a bit more? Because there’s

nothing worse than scraping

it off your kids’ shoes,” Gliddon

told the district council’s

animal control team, which was

presenting its annual report on

dogs.

Team leader Steve Clarke said

the district council had a notolerance

policy for the offence,

but the problem generally was

finding the perpetrator.

“What we will do, if there

are areas which are known

problems, we will increase

patrols, so I’m happy to do

that out in Darfield,” Clarke

said.

Further technical information sought

• From page 1

The notice of motion called

for the district council to pause

temporary chlorination.

District council chief

executive David Ward said

decommissioning then

recommissioning chlorination

equipment on the temporarily

chlorinated schemes would

involve disposing of chlorine

out of the system, allowing for

flushing and ongoing calibration.

“It’s not simply a task of

rocking up and turning off a

switch,” Ward said.

Group manager infrastructure

and property Murray Washington

said the cost would be about

$250,000.

Councillors voted six to four to

leave the notice of motion on the

table until their next meeting on

December 14, so they could have

a technical report from staff in

front of them. The report would

have information about the bacterial

contamination risks of each

supply, and the legislative responsibility

of the district council.

In opening discussion on the

notice of motion, Miller said he

had become aware, via media and

personal contact with Waimakariri

and Christchurch councils,

of an alternative approach from

Taumata Arowai. This approach

enabled a pathway of working

with the community rather than

strict enforcement.

• Readers wade into the chlorination issue. Letters, page 8

Miller said Selwyn had high

water quality going back decades.

Incidents had included E.

Coli incursion at Darfield and

Springston supplies, which had

been identified and remedied in

good time.

However, Bayfield said district

council staff had already professionally

advised councillors on

the contamination risks, following

which councillors had made

an earlier call to temporarily

chlorinate.

Christchurch was in fact

already chlorinating about 80

per cent of its supplies, while

Waimakariri had had the ability

to chlorinate in case of an emergency

for some time.

“If you are looking out of the

three approaches of the councils

in the immediate neighbourhood,

then yours is the most

secure and yours is the most

certain,” Bayfield said.

Chlorination is deemed

temporary on 18 of the district’s

supplies, as they have not

previously had permanent

chlorination introduced and

chlorination will be able to

cease in future if an exemption

application is

successful. The

district council

has so far applied

for exemptions

on two of these

supplies, and

Taumata Arowai

Bill Bayfield

expects to give

an answer for

the first, Rakaia Huts, within the

next three weeks.

“To turn chlorine off before

those exemptions are sorted out,

you have to look closely at your

reasons for doing that, because

if you do not have the advice of

officers to make that decision,

then you are making what seems

to be a political decision. If there’s

another problem like Darfield, or

god forbid like Havelock North,

then that will place your council

in a very difficult position,”

Bayfield said.

In 2016, the death of four

Havelock North residents was

connected to contaminated

water.

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall

said he did not want chlorine in

his drinking water, which was

some of the best in the country.

However, he could not leave staff

and contractors at risk of being

liable for unsafe water.

Chlorination triggers health concerns

Readers respond to

the chlorination issue

One of the main reasons I moved

from central Christchurch to

Rolleston was to have nonchlorinated

water.

We can’t afford a filtration

system, and do our best to buy

bottled water, but we still have to

shower. I understand there are

reasons for water chlorination,

but there has to be another solution.

I may be in the minority of

people who have to deal with

actual physical issues due to the

chlorine, but many people hate

the smell and taste. It dries out

skin, it tastes awful, it smells like

a swimming pool.

It may be an inexpensive solution,

but I don’t think it’s the best

solution. There has to be something

else that doesn’t impact

people so much.

My biggest hope is that it gets

reversed, because it’s significantly

impacted what I have to

deal with health-wise, and it’s

unfair that there’s no choice in

the matter. – Shannon Smith

We would rather not have

chlorination in our Rolleston

water.

We noticed in a glass of water

yesterday especially, the taste

was very strong.

We, my husband and myself,

are pensioners and we would

love to be able to put in a

water filter, but are unable to do

this. – Rae and Bruce Sowerby

I am opposed to the

chlorination requirements for

Rolleston.

The smell in the water was

awful on the first few days of

usage; what effect is it having by

entering our skin each time we

shower?

Also, I have heard chlorination

“corrodes” the copper in hot water

cylinders. If that is the case,

is the district council prepared

to “pick up the tab” for all those

cylinder replacements in the

future? – Doug Frazer

I can’t understand why they

are putting chlorine I the water

when chlorine is a poison.

Darfield has a deep water well

and if the water is not testing

clean, sort out why and fix the

problem by stopping fertiliser

use and not putting a Band-Aid

over the problem by using chlorine

– Phill Paul

I am totally opposed to

chlorination of our water in

Lincoln.

I used to enjoy a glass of

water from the tap but now we

can not only taste the foul stuff

but smell it too. Even in the

shower.

I now cannot drink fresh,

beautiful cold water like I used

to. Please add my name to the list

of objectors. – Lesley Geayley

We used to have beautiful

gravel filtered water that chlorine

has destroyed. – Roger Atkinson

As a couple of retirees living

in Preston Downs, West Melton,

we object strongly to the water

being chlorinated. – George and

Yvonne Clark

I am opposed to this dreadful

chlorination.

We have been in Lincoln three

years and have loved the fresh,

clean drinking water. – Judith

Hann

Chlorine, like fluorine/

fluoride, iodine and bromine are

all part of the halogen groups of

elements.

Of all those elements only

iodine is fit for the human body

but was removed for two reasons

(even though while in the NZ

Army it was iodine tablets we

used to treat water).

A relative of mine had a bad

reaction to chlorine after the

earthquakes. – Ken Duncan,

Rolleston.

I am a user of a continuous

positive airway pressure machine

that I have to use every night

for sleep apnea. It has a water

chamber that needs to be cleaned

and filled on a daily basis. Before

chlorination was introduced my

apnea hypopnea index readings

were low. My CPAP machine

now smells of chlorine and my

AHI readings are high.

I use filtered water from the

fridge or I can buy bottled water

which means more plastic into

our environmental waste.

It is important that I have low

AHI readings as the readings

are sent to a sleep centre and

could be sent to Waka Kotahi

New Zealand Transport Agency,

which is not good because it can

revoke my driver licence. I am a

truck driver.

I hope that chlorine is taken

out of our water supply asap. –

Lindsay Coleman

I would like to also express my

disappointment in the council’s

decision to chlorinate Rolleston’s

drinking water.

My family are suffering from

skin disorders as a result and as

an expat from South Africa it really

is disappointing that a “first

world” country follows the same

cheap and nasty disinfection

methods.

Hopefully the opposition to

chlorination is strong enough to

push the council to consider less

vile methods of disinfection. –

TE ARA ĀTEA DEBATE

Words ‘cultural centre and library’ suggested

District councillor

Sophie McInnes joins the

lively reader debate over

whether the word library

should be added to the

title of Te Ara Atea in

Rolleston

I read with particular interest –

as a Rolleston resident and as a

district councillor – the “debate”

about Te Ara Ātea.

Seated as I was in the cafe area

of that same building, with a

around 200 other people reading,

meeting, working, playing,

programming, and more on

both floors, it was clear a good

chunk of the population does

know what lies within, and that

it’s more than just a library for

Rolleston; the district’s only

council-operated museum and

art gallery, for instance.

My personal thought is that

if a plain language description

is hindering people’s use of this

fantastic facility, district councillors

should consider adding a

suitable tagline, Rolleston library

alone is not the answer though.

This this was already debated

back in 2019 after Jens Christensen

made a public plea at a

council meeting asking that the

facility not be called “Rolleston

Library and Community Centre”

on the grounds of it being confusing

and misleading.

And so we have the name Te

Ara Ātea only, because no alternatives

have been suggested that

would not themselves be confusing

or misleading in some way.

Lastly Rolleston Residents Association

is, as one correspondent

stated, a small group of 10-15

regulars. It would be wonderful

to see more people attending,

given the size of our township

and its diversity in both age and

ethnicity. There is no better time

than now.

Moneel Pratap, who many will

remember from the recent local

elections, is the new chair and

the current secretary/treasurer is

moving north for work soon. –

Sophie McInnes

Jens Christensen responds:

Interesting what Cr McInnes

claims. She has what I would

describe as selective memory

syndrome.

What I argued with the district

council by way of public forum

was for the district council to

drop the words community centre

from the description of the

building, as library/community

centre, because I said the word

community centre was false in

that it was conjuring up visions

in people’s minds that thy were

getting a new grandiose community

centre perhaps to replace

what they already had.

To reinforce my argument, I

obtained the floor plans of the

new building and studied the

room sizes and uses and tailored

my address to district council in

a form that they could understand.

The largest rooms that appeared

to have multi-use I converted

to double garage-sized dimensions

and from memory the

largest was two or three double

garages – 108 sq m – there were

no kitchen facilities suitable for a

community centre and no rooms

large enough to house a meeting

of the Rolleston Probus group, so

not a community centre.

The district council must have

agreed as they voted, I believe, to

drop the words community centre

from the name of the building

but not the word library.

I have had a suggestion from

another resident that the addition

of cultural centre could be

added to the word library, and

this may well describe the functions

other than that of a library.

I used the expression “silly” in

describing the Maori name for

Rolleston library or Te Ara Ātea.

I feel I need to defend myself

against those who implied I was

being racist. Had the building

been called “The way to the

World” or “Foundation”, I would

have described these names

as meaningless (in hindsight a

better word than silly). These,

however, are what Google

informs me are the meanings

of the words “Te Ara Atea” and

“Turanga” (Christchurch library)

respectively.

Those who wish to promote

the Maori language in this way

are not doing themselves any

favours.

Choosing a Maori term that

is meaningless and inconsistent

across New Zealand; not

providing the usual English term

alongside it (I’m sorry, Mayor

Sam Broughton, it’s a library),

is obviously going to cause a

backlash.

Accusing those critics of racism

may well be good sport but

it is unjustified and does nothing

to promote the Maori language.

– Philip Baumbach

Did anyone else notice that

although the district council staff

seem adamant that the facility

is not a library, on the Council

Call page, to find details of the

celebration of the first year of

Te Ara Ātea you have to visit

selwynlibraries.co.nz – Neil

Mugford

In response to the discussion

regarding the Rolleston library,

calling people ignorant and racist,

when their opinions differ

from their own, is simplistic and

shows an inability to articulate a

sensible argument.

Thinking people can see this

district council is blindly following

the Labour Party’s push

for co-government, which, in its

current form is divisive and onesided.

The general populace has

had little input into the workings

of this idea and quite properly

can see some problems ahead

by going down this road.

There are better ways for

councils and governments to be

inclusive and fair than the

dictatorial attitude new being

employed.The blanket instructions

from the Government to

chlorinate all water is a case in

point. Aunty knows best or does

she? – Les Wade

Silly signs . . . and

a tricky tree

4 MARCH 2023 LINCOLN

Wednesday November 30 2022 Selwyn Times

TICKETS

ON SALE

selwynsounds.co.nz

• By Barry Clarke

SELWYN TIMES readers

have often lamented at the

signage on one of the main

routes from Lincoln to

Halswell.

Now they say a temporary

speed sign which was

put up on Trices Rd near

the bend with Sabys last

week takes the cake.

Motorists heading from

Sabys onto Trices towards

Lincoln and Prebbleton

would have seen a 30km/h

sign as maintenance work

was carried out. But the

other side of the sign,

which was for motorists

heading on Trices towards

Sabys read 80.

A 30km/h temporary

sign was also put up on

Ellesmere Rd close to the

tricky Trices Rd bend,

meaning motorists travelling

in that direction were

first confronted with a

temporary 30 sign, then

the permanent 35km/h

sign on the bend, then the

confusing 80 sign, followed

by the permanent 60km/h

sign and then the permanent

25 sign at the Trices,

Sabys bend – all within

about 250m of each other.

The confusing 80 sign

was removed the day after

it was put up.

“Traffic management?

More like traffic mis-management,”

said one reader.

“No different to further

back on Ellesmere by

Tosswill Rd.’’

Near that junction, motorists

travelling towards

Halswell on Ellesmere Rd

have a 45km/h sign warning

of a bend at Tosswill

Rd, followed shortly after

by an 80 sign, and then

the 45 warning sign on the

bend itself.

“So we have a 45 sign

then an 80 and then just

after that its 45 again at

the bend. Crazy,” said the

reader.

Meanwhile, readers also

say it is about time a tree

(below) at the intersection of

busy Gerald and Robert St

in Lincoln got a decent trim.

The tree is starting

to sprawl outwards, its

branches and leafage making

getting a clear line of

sight of traffic heading east

on Gerald St tricky.

“There’s an accident

waiting to happen,” said a

reader.

The Courtenay A&P Show made a return to its full glory this year, only

to have heavy rain arrive and literally dampen proceedings. Held on

Saturday the weekend before last, the 147th show saw many turn out

regardless, happy to be back after organisers were forced by Covid

restrictions to hold a scaled-down event last year.

Wet weather gear was the order of the day for

six-year-old Ferguson and Richard Westaway.

Birthday fun for all

at Te Ara Ātea

Plan your summer!

Jam-packed events guide out now.

Pick up a copy from any Council facility

or view it online:

selwyn.govt.nz/events

Live music, story times, art and craft making, technology fun and treasure hunting

will all be part of the celebrations at Te Ara Ātea on Sunday to mark a busy

first year.

The multi-use community facility on Tennyson Street, Rolleston will be buzzing

with a collection of its most popular events from the year for its first birthday party.

Events will run from 10am–4pm Sunday 4 December, starting with a sprinkle of

magic in a fairy storytime, followed by the ever-popular NanoGirl bringing her

exciting science and technology show at 11.30am. There will also be face painting,

live music, technology, and the chance to make a woven pendant or try

block printing.

Throughout the day a scavenger hunt will be running exploring the heritage items

in the building, and during the morning there will also be sensory tables available

and an art activity creating a Selwyn landscape.

It will be a great day to reflect on and celebrate the success of the past 12 months

Te Ara Ātea Co-Leader Mat Logan says.

“It’s been a really busy year, with the place so full of people and so much

happening. It will be nice to be replaying some of the hits, with things for

everyone whether you enjoy listening to a story, making art, technology, science

experiments, chilling with some live music, learning about our heritage, picking up

a book, some food from the café or getting your face painted.”

In the past year there have been more than 164,000 visits to the building, over 900

workshops and programmes, and over 310,546 items checked out from the

library collection.

In the past week Te Ara Ātea won a 2022 New Zealand Architecture Award for

Interior Architecture, to go with the Canterbury Architecture Award it won during

the year and the 2022 Creative New Zealand Award for Cultural Wellbeing at the

Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ) Excellence Awards.

Annual report on district’s dog control

services now available

More than 16,400 dogs were registered in Selwyn last financial year, according to

Selwyn District Council’s latest dog control report.

The Council adopted the Dog Control Policy and Procedures Report 2021/2022

(Section 10A Report) at its meeting on 23 November, and residents can now view the

report on the Council website.

It shows once again Selwyn residents have been great at registering their dog, with

the hard work of the animal control team seeing all 16,441 known dogs registered for

the 2021/2022 financial year. The Council has already registered 98% of dogs for the

2022/23 financial year.

It shows 87 per cent of the 60 dogs taken to the pound during the year were able to

be returned home, while five were

successfully rehomed.

Animal control officers responded to 1,234

complaints about dogs in the community, with the

majority of these being for wandering or found dogs

(837) and barking (230).

As part of its activities, the Council provided a free

monthly microchipping service, and delivered Dog

Smart education programmes in five schools and

groups throughout the year. COVID-19 impacted the

number of schools being able to participate.

Under the Dog Control Act 1996, Council is required

to report on its dog control activities for the year.

To view the full report, visit selwyn.govt.nz/dogs.

New sign unveiled at historic Lincoln

railway bridge

A piece of Lincoln’s rail history was acknowledged in the town this month, at

the unveiling of a new history sign.

Representatives from the Selwyn District Council and Lincoln and Districts

Historical Society gathered at the nearly 150-year-old Lincoln Railway Bridge

on 22 November as the sign was installed.

The bridge was built in 1874 as part of the Christchurch to Southbridge

branch railway line. The railway dramatically changed Lincoln as it grew to

become an important railway junction.

Road improvements, increased car ownership and the dropping of road freight

charges in the 1960s saw the Southbridge branch line close, and eventually

the Lincoln railway station closed in 1966.

Black and white photographs of the Lincoln railway station, a timetable from

1927 and a Christchurch to Lincoln train ticket are included on the sign, along

with a timeline and history of the railway.

The project was a collaboration between Lincoln and Districts Historical

Society, NZ Railway & Locomotive Society, and Selwyn District Council.

Time to step up and save lives this summer

It’s time to step up for summer.

It’s that time of year again, the season of parties, work do’s, beach days and barbecues where we

break out the drinks. We all know what to do, or what not to do, we have all heard the different tag

lines over the years:

• If you drink and drive, you’re a bloody idiot.

• Stop a mate from driving drunk,

bloody legend.

• Sorry, that’s a fail.

And yet our family and friends are still

crashing and being killed on Selwyn

roads due to impaired driving.

There is no excuse for driving under

the influence of alcohol or drugs. It’s

time to step up and save lives. Driving

impaired simply isn’t worth the risk, to

life, to family, to friends, to work.

Plan ahead and sort out how you, your family and your friends are going to get home safely. There

are plenty of options available, if you take some time to sort your safe ride home before you

head out.

Stay alert to your family and friends’ intoxication levels - if they look like driving, be brave, save

their lives or potentially the lives of others, get them to use another option to get home. It can be

hard to step up and question others, but what’s a little discomfort if it saves a life?

Think about the risks, don’t do it, and stop others from doing it. Get home safe this summer.

Transport company owner smoked

cannabis while on long haul delivery

• By Emily Moorhouse

THE OWNER of a transport

company had meth in his system

and smoked two cannabis joints

at the wheel of his faulty and

unauthorised truck during a

long-haul journey.

On Friday, Benjamin Mikkelson

appeared in Christchurch

District Court for sentencing on

11 charges in relation to his drug

use and standard of vehicles.

At the hearing, Mikkelson, the

owner of That Transport Company,

made an unsuccessful bid

to keep his licence so he could

continue working.

According to the summary of

facts, Mikkelson was driving a

Nissan Condor truck from Dunedin

to Invercargill on November

11 last year, fully laden with

building materials for a client.

On his way, the 34-year-old

was stopped by the Commercial

Vehicle Safety Team that

discovered his truck not only had

an expired certificate of fitness

but that the transport service

licence displayed did not belong

to the truck or the company.

This is a requirement for a

truck with a gross vehicle mass

of more than six tonnes.

After further inspection of

Benjamin Mikkelson admitted to smoking two cannabis

joints while driving from Christchurch to Dunedin.

the vehicle, the team found a

number of faults including a

worn tyre, missing mirror, the

front bumper being insecure and

a broken tail light.

The team issued a non-operation

order on the vehicle which

prohibited Mikkelson from driving

it until repairs were carried

out and a certificate of fitness

obtained as well as a transport

service licence.

Mikkelson was also issued

with a notice forbidding him to

operate an unlicensed transport

service and was ordered to hand

over his logbook to police –

which contained no entries for

that day’s work.

During his interaction with

police, officers noticed the driver’s

unusual behaviour. He then

admitted to smoking two joints

while driving from Christchurch

to Dunedin.

A compulsory impairment

test was carried out which Mikkelson

failed and a blood test

returned positive results for

methamphetamine and cannabis.

As a result, he was forbidden

to drive for 12 hours, starting at

10.30am that day.

However, only six hours later

Mikkelson got back into his

truck – without completing any

repairs or obtaining the required

licences – and completed the

drive to Invercargill.

He had also attempted to hide

the non-operation order sticker

attached to the front windscreen.

Mikkelson arrived in Invercargill

around 7pm and delivered

his load to an unknown destination.

Three hours later, parked on

a street in Invercargill, he was

located by police who found a

bong and 21 grams of cannabis

in the truck.

In further offending, Mikkelson

was pulled over by a CVST

officer on August 17 this year

after he was seen on his phone

while driving a Hino truck in

Waipara. Again, he was without

an up-to-date certificate of fitness

or registration.

Mikkelson also did not have a

logbook, which was required as

he was driving a truck of more

than 6000kg and travelling beyond

50km of his base.

Additionally, he had a road

user licence displayed on the

windscreen showing a maximum

reading of 20,000km but

the hubodometer fitted to his

truck read 44,088km.

In court, defence lawyer Jaiden

Manera argued against a disqualification

period, submitting

such a sentence would impact

Mikkelson’s business.

But Judge Quentin Hix considered

this concerning, stating the

offending was not minor.

He said it had been elevated

by drug use and Mikkelson’s

failure to adhere to the vehicle

orders.

The judge then sentenced

him to six months’ community

detention and 12 months of

intensive supervision.

A six-month disqualification

on all licences was imposed and

an 18-month disqualification on

class two to five vehicles.

Mikkelson was also ordered to

pay $778 reparation for the drug

tests.

Lincoln HS student cooks

his way to prestigious award

AN ASPIRING young

cook from Lincoln High

School has earned a

prestigious award.

Adam Baker was among

three students who have

scooped the Prime Minister’s

Vocational Excellence

Award.

The award was launched

in 2019 to celebrate the top

high school students enrolled

in vocational study

with a $2000 prize.

Along with Shirley

Boys’ High School’s Zane

Roberts and Hillmorton

High School’s Tyler

Spatcher-Harrison, Baker

has juggled school this

year along with two days a

week completing cookery

level three at Ara-Te

Pūkenga’s department of

hospitality, business and

service industries.

“I’m glad I did the

course. If you aren’t sure

what you want to do

there’s no harm in doing

it and I was keen for the

credits,” he said.

Baker is planning on

spending his money either

on a set of knives or his

further education ahead

at Ara.

said the award is a wonderful

bonus for these

students who have gone

above and beyond.

“They’re my high

achievers. They’ve worked

hard out of class to practice

and do extra competitions.

Anything that

was available to do – they

pushed themselves.

“I still can’t believe we

had three in one class

though.”

Most of her 2022 class

are planning on returning

said demonstrates how the

And because the level

through school, there is

impact on their fees – free

Watson said it is rewarding

helping these students

find where their future

lies.

“They get a lot out

of their experience as

they seek work. Instead

of having to be shown

everything they’ve already

got skills – they know

about clean workspaces

and food safety, so it gives

them a head start.”

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology

(insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new

species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to

raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things

around us. Check out the full list of invertebrates found at www.

Caddisflies important

to fish and anglers

CADDISFLIES or

Trichoptera are well known

to people who like to go

fly fishing as they are an

integral part of fish diet,

and artificial flies are often

used to simulate these

common insects.

Over 250 species are

known in New Zealand

and aquatic experts suggest

there could be another 50

species yet to be described.

Adult caddisflies range in

length from micro-caddis

a few millimetres long to

those measuring up to

20mm.

A few of these larger species

were recently attracted

to our window by light and

were identified as Triplectides

cephalotes, a large

stick caddis.

Their common name

derives from the larvae that

Larvae are considered

They are commonly

ranging from urban

to forest-covered areas.

The tolerance scale

ranges from 10 (sensitive

PETS & PAWS

Quality food locally

sourced and delivered

Natural, high quality, raw pet foods

for cats and dogs are available locally

at Burnham-based company Big

Mountain Naturally.

This company prides themselves on

using the best ingredients including

rabbit, wallaby, hare, venison, goat,

chicken, possum, goat and also beef.

They do not use preservatives or

chemicals in the manufacture of their

pet food.

Big Mountain Naturally also has a

great sign written van and delivers

throughout the Selwyn District and

Christchurch, Ashburton and Timaru

areas. For residential customers,

delivery is free for purchases over $65.

The company has operated in Burnham for the

past eight years and prior to this, processed rabbit

for the North American market from their Tekapo

location.

It was there that owner Robert (Bob) Thomson was

convinced by a major retailer in Auckland to supply the

New Zealand market with quality raw pet food, as it was

hard to find consistent supply for retail shops, due to the

demand from the export market.

Bob and his team had been processing rabbit, hares, and

wallabies for the New Zealand market

for both premium quality pet food and human

consumption. Only recently has Big Mountain Naturally

stopped producing human consumption meats as

compliance costs soared.

Big Mountain Naturally is an MPI registered facility and

all meat is traced from its source through to production

using a risk management programme run by the Ministry

of Primary Industries.

This provides traceability from harvest to sales which

rules out any chance of poisons getting into the food

chain. The factory has 21 different lines of compliance

making it a very comprehensive programme.

Big Mountain Naturally products are available from

several major petfood retailers or can be purchased

direct from their facility at 540 Burnham

School Road, Burnham. They also

have a web page for online sales.

GARDENING 33

Prepare pot plants for your holiday

WHETHER YOU’RE going

away for a summer holiday or

staying at home, the prospect of

watering the garden – container

plants in particular – can present

challenges.

The easy answer would be to

just put all container plants into

the garden and be done with the

fussing.

However, there’s no denying

that a few well-chosen container

plants bring a decorative flourish

to bland deserts of paving and

deck.

They are invaluable, too, for

standing like bouncers beside

entrances or enhancing the end of

some clever vista you have carved

out of your plot.

However, as plant accommodation,

rather than providing

a luxury getaway, pots and

containers are more like a prison

sentence, with water and food

limited and excess sun and wind

in exposed locations.

This means you need to be

cunning with your compost and a

wizard with your choice of green

matter.

Why is it that weeds can abseil

their way into a pot and look

so healthy while the plant you

intended to shine on its glazed

pedestal looks anaemic and

spindly? It’s because most of us

are unrealistic about the level of

maintenance we will need to lavish

on our charges.

It’s tempting to go for muti-coloured

pot plants but such highoctane

performance demands

the pampering of a movie star –

weekly deadheading and feeding

and almost daily watering,

so it’s really only for the keenest

enthusiast.

Spring bulbs are another classic

disaster area – irresistible when

we see the pictures at the garden

centre but a disaster a fortnight

after the party is over when we

fail to follow up after the leaves

and flowers at the start of the year

have flopped and faded.

Stick them in plastic containers

before sinking them inside a

classy bit of earthenware.

Later, out they go to make

way for a more permanent

successor. It is a mistake to

assume special new plants

somehow deserve a prime spot

in a container right outside the

ranchsliders.

Plant them in the ground where

they will get their roots down and

draw deep for summer moisture

instead. And if you want to see

them, go out to the garden and

look.

If your soil is heavy, spend

some effort planting them

on mounds and improve soil

structure with plenty of grit and

compost.

The most successful pot plants

are tried and tested toughies that

will survive on neglect.

Essentials include succulents,

flaxes, native xeronema and

epiphytic plants, which are used

to hanging out like a shoestring.

Epiphytes include spiky astelias as

well as other native foliage plants

such as Griselinia lucida and

pseudopanax – both of which are

amazingly drought-tolerant.

Don’t mingle too many specimens

in one confined space

because fights are bound to break

out. Instead, give each its own

home but herd pots together to

create communities of contrasting

forms and textures.

As with your wardrobe there

will always be the classics that

never go out of fashion and which

form the backbone of your collection.

Succulents are foolproof.

Choose the dramatic ones such

as aloes and softer euphorbias

or those which are able to bungy

over the sides of even the tallest

of drums.

Bromeliads never outgrow their

place in a pot if sited sensitively.

Never underestimate the class

of one substantial foliage star.

Even something as simple as a

large agapanthus in sun or a clivia

or specimen fern in shade will be

dependable staples which, like a

little black dress, always earn their

place on the rail.

Get the best out of container

plants by providing ideal conditions.

Always choose a good quality

compost for containers. Soil or

loam-based products retain water

and nutrients better.

Top pots up with a slow release

fertiliser every year, especially if

you never supplement with the

occasional liquid feed.

Water-retaining gels are

effective when repotting plants

but don’t rely on them alone. A

good old-fashioned saucer to

catch water under a pot and a

thick mulch at the top are just as

useful.

If you are away in summer,

shunt the containers into a

sheltered shady corner.

Keep safe; get your tyre

alignment checked

Dodging potholes in our roads is

another issue facing drivers. Not only

are the holes annoying, but they are

likely causing damage to your vehicle.

Therefore, aligning your tyres and

ensuring your suspension system works

correctly is essential for assisting your

four tyres to stay continuously and

constantly in contact with the road

surface. If you notice uneven tyre wear,

steering pull, or an off-centre steering

wheel, it’s time to see KATS Rolleston.

With their mechanical workshop, they

can provide full mechanical repairs and a

range of services, including balancing and

alignments, suspension lifts and lowering,

and warrants of fitness.

Aligning your tyres will maximise the

life you get from your tyres but also give

you the best fuel economy, proper road

contact, and a smooth ride. The process

will adjust the angles of your vehicle’s

wheels so that the tyres are centred in the

wheel wells and are pointing straight, and

your tyres meet the road at the proper

angle. A correct alignment will improve

handling, decrease instability and steering

problems, especially when braking and

reduce suspension and parts wear.

Your suspension system is one of the

main systems ensuring your vehicle

is safe to travel in. Suspension issues

can severely impact your handling,

effective suspension system, you’ll

experience shorter stopping distances,

less steering vibration, a smoother and

more comfortable ride with less body

roll, safer support for a vehicle under

load and longer tyre life. There are many

Skoda SUV packs powerful punch

THERE OFTEN comes a point

in time when you know the mode

of transport you have isn’t fit for

purpose.

That happened to my wife and

I just recently as our old sedan

made way for a sport utility vehicle.

The latter providing us with the

entry and egress comfort we need

as our hips give way to old age,

notwithstanding modern engines

are far more fuel efficient than our

car that was designed over 20 years

ago.

Of course, being the petrolhead

I am, I would have liked to

have purchased something with

a bit more punch from under the

bonnet, but in terms of cost I had

to be realistic about that.

Had funds been available, we

may well have purchased a Skoda

Kodiaq – the RS version. It has

all of the comfort ingredients we

were looking for in an SUV, but

under the bonnet sits the 2-litre

turbocharged engine that has

found its way through a raft of

Skoda, Seat, Cupra and Volkswagen

product, notably the VW Golf GTi.

The Kodaiq RS isn’t quite as

gutsy as Volkswagen’s Tiguan R,

but it does have much the same

engine, albeit with lower power

outputs. Saying that, at 180kW and

370Nm the Kodiaq RS does have

48kW and 50Nm greater than the

2-litre TSi version I evaluated in

these columns in August.

The Kodiaq RS also benefits

from a recent facelift amongst the

six-variant series, it also gets a high

fitment package that extends to

satellite navigation, paddle-shifters,

panoramic sunroof, keyless

entry and ignition, electric seat

adjustment, seat heaters and a host

of other minor features.

Skoda’s marketing slogan is

‘simply clever,’ and over the years

I’ve mentioned many times the little

niceties that make the brand stand

out from others. In the Kodaiq RS

it was the plastic wheel trims that

sit inside the actual alloy wheel

itself, they can be removed to give

the vehicle a completely different

look. It’s the first time I’ve seen that

arrangement and, yes, it is clever.

Those features don’t come at

a huge cost; sure, at $79,990 the

range-topping RS will stretch some

buyers’ budgets, but the entire

Kodiaq range is there to lure buyers

who want quality product at an

affordable price. The entry level

model lists at $48,990, while those

in the medium grades sit in the

$60,000 bracket.

Of course, all models have the

benefit of space, that is the way

it is with the modern SUV, and

the Kodiaq RS is no exception,

there’s even seven seats, although

the two rear seats that fold up out

of the cargo section are really just

for children or those very slight of

build.

CLEVER: The plastic wheel inserts can be removed to offer

a different look.

SKODA KODIAQ RS: High performance from Volkswagen Golf GTi engine.

As with all VW Group models

the Kodiaq RS is quality-built

and comfortable, there is space to

spread out in, and the remaining

seats are beautifully formed so that

fatigue on a long journey is kept to

a minimum.

I took the test car on a long

inland journey through to the

Malvern Hills and it felt just so

balanced and controlled on that

journey, the hills and bends were

simply swallowed up with ease.

A lot of that has to do with the

way the suspension has been set up.

Of course, drive is sent to all four

wheels which means there’s a fully

independent system underneath.

The spring and damper rates

are firmed slightly, but there is

compliance within that so occupant

comfort isn’t jeopardised.

It’s important to have balance

underneath when you have healthy

power outputs up front. The 2-litre

turbocharged engine is a feisty

unit and, as I’ve alluded to, it’s an

engine that has found its way into

hundreds of thousands of vehicles.

I’ve never found a car that hasn’t

thrilled me when fitted with the

GTi engine, and in the Kodaiq RS it

is another exciting product.

In terms of performance it will

accelerate to 100km/h from a

standstill in 6.6sec and will make

a highway overtake in 4.6sec

• Price – Skoda Kodiaq RS,

$79,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4699mm; width,

2087mm; height, 1685mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1984cc, 180kW, 370Nm,

seven-speed direct shift

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.6sec

• Fuel usage – 8.3l/100km

(80-120km/h). On my journey I

passed several slower vehicles and

delighted in the mid-range boost

on tap.

Drive is distributed through a

direct shift gearbox with seven

distinct ratios, by the sheer nature

of its design it is a quick-changing

gearbox that doesn’t put any

unnecessary load on the engine.

That being the case, all of the

horsepower can be utilised for

speed and acceleration when

required. Not only is the engine

a real dynamo, it is one of the

most pleasing in today’s market,

thrilling with its potential and

sound, the automatic downshift

blip reminiscent of a race car on

track.

All that it offers doesn’t come

at the cost of massive fuel usage,

Skoda rates the Kodiaq RS with an

8.3-litre per 100km/h combined

cycle average. During my long

journey the instantaneous figure

sat around 6l/100km at 100km/h

(engine speed 1750rpm) resulting

in a 9l/100km combined figure

when I took the car back to the

dealership.

I particularly enjoyed my time

with the Kodiaq RS, it’s a feisty,

fun SUV that offers a point of

difference in this age where

hybrids and electric vehicles are

commanding that part of the

market.

The Kodiaq RS stands up to

be counted with its honesty and

driveability, it has that fun factor

and serious capability both on-road

and off, although undulating offroad

excursions would be the best

bet. It’s not a serious cross-country

model, but it will take the family

into the high country lakes for that

summer fishing trip and/or the

winter ski field access road with

much ease.

Coincidentally, I dropped

the Kodiaq back and picked up

the VW Tiguan R two days later.

Both have incredible performance,

it’s just whether you want the

maximum this engine will deliver

or not.

A DARFIELD farmer has

spoken of watching a man leap into

the flooded Hawkins River to try and

save himself after a helicopter winch

rescue operation failed.

Rod May had taken his tractor to

the scene on Greendale Rd, to try and

reach the middle-aged man who had

been clinging to the branches of a tree

in the rising waters on Sunday night.

The man had driven into the

flooded river, escaped from his car

and called emergency services from

his cellphone which he managed to

keep with him.

Ultimately, a second helicopter

winch operation plucked the man

to safety after he was swept downstream.

It was a happy ending to the

ordeal which had lasted more than

three hours. The rescue was among

several in Canterbury on Sunday in

flooded rivers.

May said he and his family had just

had dinner when a neighbour alerted

them. Arriving about 8.50pm, he saw

the floodwaters were too high for the

tractor, however, he used its lights for

i luminating the site where the man

was. • Turn to page 5

A BAR patron who won $1200

on the pokies may have been

targeted by thieves moments after

she co lected the money.

A group of men who were in

the bar a the same time are the

focus of police inquiries. It is

believed they watched her being

paid, and then quickly swooped.

The incident happened at The

Famous Grouse Hotel in Lincoln

two weeks ago.

After she was paid out a the

bar, the men who had been

si ting nearby went over and

congratulated her. While she was

distracted the money disappeared

from her handbag. She only

realised it was gone after she left

the hotel.

Police have taken CCTV

security camera footage from the

hotel which shows the men going

over to the woman and mobbing

her in a congratulatory way. The

footage also captures a hand from

Police say they may have

the design and style they want at no extra cost

• Provide affordability - generally costs

less than television, radio, and direct mail

any budget

• Reach more readers - newspapers sit around

from week to week and readers are more likely

to come back to a newspaper to find and save

information

• Capture more attention - newspaper readers

spend a longer period of time reading a

average attention span of an Internet user is

eight seconds”

SPRING IS a time when it’s

desirable to be working is the

garden.

However, there are hidden

dangers and one of those is

developing legionnaires’ disease.

Here are some guidelines to

avoid that happening

•Minimise the amount of dust

present when working in the

garden.

• Water gardens and indoor

plants using a gentle spray.

• Read the warning label on

bagged composts or po ting mix.

• Wear gloves.

• Wear a mask so that any dust

is filtered out before you can

breathe it in.

• Dampen po ting mixes before

• Open bags of soil products

slowly, away from the face.

• Make sure the working area

(for example, the gla shouse or

po ting shed) is we l ventilated.

• See a doctor if you develop a

flu-like i lne s that seems to be

worsening.

• Wash hands thoroughly

after gardening or handling soil

products.

These are simple, easy and

natural steps that a l gardeners

can take to reduce risk while

continuing to enjoy their garden.

Rolleston 2/652 Springston Rolleston Road

Calling all builders, developers and land bankers!

Here is a wonderful opportunity to secure a 12619m2 of prime land, perfectly located within the heart of Rolleston.

This land is already zoned Residential, meaning the options here are aplenty. The 1990s built, 240m2 5 bedroom brick

home features good sized open plan living areas with an updated kitchen. The living areas flow nicely to an outdoor

patio area, which provides a wonderful space for enjoying summer evenings with family or entertaining friends. The

master bedroom is a good size and is complete with an ensuite and walk in robe. The 4 additional bedrooms are all

doubles with robes. A comfortable home that provides purchasers options to either incorporate this home into a

future development, utilise the home as either a rental or owner occupy if looking at this as a landbank opportunity, or

simply remove and utilise the entire block as a blank canvas for development. For those looking at this as a land

banking opportunity, the land itself is well set up into two paddocks and there are shedding options on the property.

This really is a mini-lifestyle property in the middle of town! There are substantial developments going on within the

immediate vicinity of this property and it is no secret that Rolleston continues to grow in popularity and in-fill

developments such as this are going to become harder and harder to find.
