One of the worst serial<br />

rapists<br />

and<br />

burglars<br />

dead<br />

PHOTOS: STAR ARCHIVES,<br />

GETTY<br />

• By Barry Clarke<br />

ONE OF Christchurch’s worst<br />

serial rapists and burglars has<br />

died. Some of his victims just<br />

wish he had never been born.<br />

Lawrence Te-Iwi-Toa Kanohi<br />

was in his late 70s when he<br />

died earlier this month. He was<br />

paroled from prison several<br />

months ago to a secure medical<br />

care facility on the outskirts<br />

of the city, suffering from<br />

dementia. He had served nearly<br />

30 years in jail for his reign of<br />

terror in the early 90s.<br />

He affected literally hundreds<br />

of people in Christchurch –<br />

from the women he raped and<br />

the effect it had on their families,<br />

to the people whose homes<br />

he broke into and the lasting<br />

fear it instilled in them.<br />

Police connected Kanohi to<br />

nearly 120 burglaries when he<br />

was arrested, but they are sure<br />

there were more. He would steal<br />

cash, jewellery, music cassette<br />

tapes, electronic equipment<br />

women’s underwear – and photos<br />

of females who lived there,<br />

where he would put cartoon<br />

bubbles on them with comments<br />

like “sex is my thing”,<br />

“you turn me on” and “would<br />

you like to try”.<br />

<strong>The</strong> burglaries were committed<br />

between 1983 and 1992,<br />

mainly in the Shirley, St Albans,<br />

Edgeware and Riccarton areas.<br />

Kanohi was sentenced to<br />

preventative detention – an<br />

indefinite jail sentence – for two<br />

rapes and an attempted rape in<br />

Shirley and St Albans in 1992.<br />

He had spent time in jail in the<br />

mid-60s for a rape in the North<br />

Island, and another attack in St<br />

Martins in 1972 when he blindfolded<br />

and trussed up a 62-yearold<br />

in her home. <strong>The</strong> woman’s<br />

daughter told <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> this week<br />

her mother had later confided<br />

in a relative she had been raped,<br />

but would not say it at the time.<br />

AM host Oliver-Kirby<br />

‘making great progress’<br />

THE AM show on TV3 has<br />

given an update on presenter<br />

Bernadine Oliver-Kerby’s health<br />

battle.<br />

Last year the popular television<br />

presenter took extended<br />

leave from the AM show as it<br />

was revealed she was suffering<br />

from Bell’s palsy, a condition<br />

which causes facial paralysis.<br />

According to Newshub, Oliver-<br />

Kerby has since been diagnosed<br />

with Ramsay Hunt syndrome,<br />

which displays similar symptoms<br />

to Bell’s palsy.<br />

Oliver-Kerby’s co-hosts shared<br />

an update on their colleague’s<br />

condition.<br />

Ryan Bridge told viewers:<br />

“She’s making great progress.<br />

She is missing you all, she sent<br />

us a text to say that, but she also<br />

has a little more resting to do.”<br />

And Melissa Chan-Green<br />

added: “We’re really looking<br />

forward to having Bern back<br />

with us soon.”<br />

Last week a Discovery Warner<br />

Bros. spokesperson said Oliver-<br />

Kerby, from Canterbury, was<br />

still recovering from the condition<br />

which struck her in October,<br />

with treatment at Auckland<br />

Hospital.<br />

“Bernadine is still taking<br />

time to recover,” the spokesperson<br />

said.<br />

Last year, following a noticeable<br />

period of absence, Oliver-<br />

Kerby’s co-hosts revealed what<br />

had happened.<br />

“You may have noticed that<br />

our lovely Bernadine has been<br />

absent from the show for a while<br />

now. Bern is going to be taking<br />

an extended period of sick leave<br />

after experiencing facial paralysis<br />

on one side of her face due to<br />

Bell’s palsy,” said Chan-Green of<br />

the condition that affects two to<br />

three people per 10,000.<br />

Bridge continued: “Bernadine<br />

can’t wait to reunite with the<br />

team, with us and with you at<br />

home, the AM viewers and with<br />

the rest of the recovery now her<br />

main priority.”<br />

Bridge also noted that Oliver-<br />

DIAGNOSED: Bernadine<br />

Oliver-Kirby has been<br />

diagnosed with Ramsay<br />

Hunt syndrome since<br />

taking extended leave<br />

from the AM show last<br />

year.<br />

INSTAGRAM<br />

Kerby was extremely grateful to<br />

the staff at Auckland Hospital<br />

who “took such great care of her”.<br />

“Bern, we love you, you know<br />

we do. You’re an incredible<br />

presence on this programme.<br />

We love your wit, we love your<br />

humour, we miss you. We look<br />

forward to seeing you back as<br />

soon as you can,” he said.<br />

– NZ Herald<br />

What is Ramsay Hunt<br />

syndrome?<br />

Made famous after<br />

pop star Justin Bieber<br />

was diagnosed with<br />

the condition, Ramsay<br />

Hunt syndrome is a<br />

complication of the<br />

shingles virus.<br />

Often signalled by a<br />

painful rash around the<br />

ear, mouth or on the<br />

face, it occurs when the<br />

virus affects a particular<br />

nerve in the head and<br />

causes facial weakness or<br />

paralysis.<br />

<strong>The</strong> condition can take<br />

weeks and sometimes<br />

months to clear.<br />

Meanwhile, Bell’s palsy,<br />

also known as facial palsy,<br />

is the sudden onset of<br />

paralysis of one of the<br />

facial nerves.<br />

Southern Cross NZ<br />

describes the symptoms<br />

as being “muscle<br />

weakness on one side of<br />

the face, causing the face<br />

to droop”.<br />

“Bell’s palsy can affect<br />

anyone. Its annual<br />

incidence is two to three<br />

people per 10,000 of<br />

the population, and this<br />

is thought to be similar<br />

across all ethnic groups<br />

and between men and<br />

women. Pregnant women<br />

and people with diabetes<br />

have an increased risk.”<br />

If you think you might<br />

be suffering from Bell’s<br />

palsy you should urgently<br />

seek help from your<br />

healthcare provider.<br />

Don’t let $16.8m plant<br />

upgrade go to waste<br />

THE CITY council is reminding<br />

residents to continue to recycling<br />

correctly following a $16.8<br />

million upgrade of the city’s<br />

recycling facility.<br />

EcoCentral has overhauled<br />

its Materials Recovery Facility<br />

in Parkhouse Rd, Sockburn,<br />

using a $16.8 million grant it<br />

received from the Ministry for<br />

the Environment’s special<br />

Covid-19 Response and<br />

Recovery Fund.<br />

It has installed new<br />

equipment, including<br />

eight optical sorters, two<br />

ballistic screens, four<br />

bounce conveyors and an<br />

eddy current separator.<br />

<strong>The</strong> upgrade provides the<br />

facility, where Christchurch’s<br />

recycling gets sorted and<br />

prepared for sale, with greater<br />

ability to sort plastics, paper and<br />

cardboard.<br />

“Updating the technology<br />

means the plant will be able to<br />

sort paper and plastics to a<br />

higher standard where we<br />

Craig<br />

Downie<br />

can meet 0.5 per cent<br />

contamination threshold. This<br />

means we will be able to sell to<br />

international markets easier,’’<br />

says EcoCentral chief executive<br />

Craig Downie.<br />

“However we will only be<br />

able to do this if we continue to<br />

receive high quality recycling<br />

– this means everyone putting<br />

the right items in the right<br />

bins. If wrong items go<br />

into the yellow bin it can<br />

contaminate the recycling,<br />

meaning we may be unable<br />

to sell the material.<br />

In Christchurch only<br />

clean cardboard, paper, tin<br />

and aluminium cans, glass<br />

bottles and jars rigid plastic<br />

bottles and containers<br />

marked with the numbers 1, 2 or<br />

5 should go in the yellow wheelie<br />

bin for recycling.<br />

Residents will have the<br />

opportunity to view the<br />

upgraded facility at the Materials<br />

Recovery Facility public open day<br />

Two injured in house fire<br />

• By Nathan Morton<br />

TWO PEOPLE were injured in a<br />

house fire in Spreydon.<br />

Multiple fire crews from the<br />

Christchurch Central, Wigram<br />

and Spreydon stations were<br />

called to the blaze on Bayley Pl<br />

shortly after 11pm on Tuesday.<br />

Shift manager Jill Higgison<br />

said the house was well alight<br />

when firefighters arrived.<br />

An ambulance was called to<br />

the scene to treat a person who<br />

had been burned.<br />

Sarah McElroy, who lives<br />

on the corner of Bayley Pl and<br />

Neville St, said she woke up<br />

around 9.30pm to the sound of<br />

sirens nearby.<br />

“I thought it sounded quite<br />

close, but I didn’t think much of<br />

it at first,” she said.<br />

“I figured it might be someone<br />

getting pulled over, then I heard<br />

another siren and thought it<br />

sounded very close – that’s when<br />

I ran to my mum’s room and<br />

saw these lights coming through<br />

the curtain.<br />

“I thought: ‘Oh no, this doesn’t<br />

seem right’.”<br />

After running outside,<br />

McElroy spotted orange smoke<br />

coming down the street.<br />

“I yelled ‘fire’ to my mum, we<br />

grabbed the key to our gate and<br />

ran down the street.”<br />

McElroy said the street was<br />

littered with police, ambulances<br />

and fire engines.<br />

McElroy said the property<br />

GUTTED: It took firefighters about two hours to tackle the<br />

house fire on Bayley Pl.<br />

belonged to a man who had been<br />

a good friend over the years. She<br />

said he was a “lovely man” who<br />

often walked past their house<br />

with his dog.<br />

“We started speaking to<br />

him and slowly became good<br />

friends,” she said.<br />

“He actually helped us put a<br />

wire up to stop my dog from<br />

escaping through our hedge, so<br />

a really lovely guy.”<br />

McElroy spotted the man<br />

sitting on the ground, holding<br />

his dog and clearly in shock. She<br />

approached him and checked<br />

to make sure he was alright,<br />

noticing he was holding a gauze<br />

pad to the back of his head.<br />

“My mum said he needed a<br />

blanket, so I got a blanket and<br />

wrapped it around him. He<br />

thanked me and told me he’d<br />

bring it back to me, but I said he<br />

should keep it.”<br />

Looking towards the property,<br />

McElroy saw the front of<br />

the property was completely<br />

engulfed by flames.<br />

“I was nearly in tears,” she<br />

said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> four fire crews tackled the<br />

flames for about two hours, Fire<br />

and Emergency NZ said.<br />

St John said two people were<br />

taken to Christchurch Hospital<br />

with moderate injuries.<br />

“It was scary hearing the<br />

sirens and seeing another house<br />

in flames,” said McElroy.<br />

Fire investigators were at the<br />

scene of the property yesterday<br />

morning. Fire and Emergency<br />

NZ staff member at the scene<br />

said the owner re-entered the<br />

property after initially escaping,<br />

which is what caused his injury.<br />

and supportive” of the parking<br />

problem.<br />

“We are very aware of how<br />

vulnerable some of our staff<br />

at Christchurch Hospital feel<br />

getting to and from their cars in<br />

the dark before or after a shift.<br />

“We recognise that there<br />

aren’t enough spaces in the<br />

area to meet current public<br />

and staff demand, which is<br />

why we continue to work with<br />

Ngāi Tahu, the Ministry of<br />

Health, local MPs, Christchurch<br />

City Council, Environment<br />

Canterbury, the police and other<br />

key partners on finding solutions<br />

to improve parking, transport<br />

and safety in and around the<br />

hospital campus.”<br />

A two-storey addition to an<br />

existing secure staff parking<br />

building on Antigua St, which<br />

would add 238 parks, was meant<br />

to be completed by last October.<br />

“We do not have a timeframe<br />

on when a decision will be<br />

made about (the Antigua St<br />

extension),” it said.<br />

But Te Whatu Ora Waitaha<br />

said it was exploring other<br />

solutions in the meantime.<br />

“This includes (fast-tracking)<br />

the demolition of the old<br />

boiler house to accommodate<br />

additional staff parking (subject<br />

to funding), leasing floors of<br />

a potential carpark build on<br />

Tuam St and extending the staff<br />

shuttle to Deans Ave and the<br />

surrounding staff car parks and<br />

streets post 1am.”<br />

At the moment, the shuttle<br />

specifically to transport staff<br />

to their cars operated between<br />

8.45pm and 1am.<br />

In the statement, Te Whatu<br />

Ora Waitaha also detailed a<br />

number of safety initiatives and<br />

protocols already in place.<br />

“We have priority parking for<br />

staff on our night shift should<br />

they choose to use it and we<br />

ensure 50 per cent of our staff car<br />

park building is available for staff<br />

on afternoon shifts.<br />

“We work with the police and<br />

Christchurch City Council to<br />

ensure we have a co-ordinated<br />

approach to helping keep people<br />

safe, including police patrol<br />

routes and a regular presence,<br />

and good street lighting in the<br />

area.”<br />

It said staff could also make a<br />

request for a security escort to<br />

their vehicle. This was subject to<br />

security staff availability, but Te<br />

Whatu Ora Waitaha said it was<br />

“able to facilitate this most of<br />

the time with just a short wait,<br />

especially after 1am when the<br />

shuttle has stopped running”.<br />

Security staff carried out both<br />

foot and vehicle patrols as well,<br />

the statement added.<br />

“A nightly security patrol in<br />

a highly visible Allied Security<br />

vehicle patrols the main roads<br />

around the Christchurch<br />

Campus” and “security guard<br />

patrols on the main walking<br />

route between the campus and<br />

the staff carparks [operate]<br />

between 10 and 11.30pm (timed<br />

to coincide with the end of<br />

an afternoon shift and the<br />

beginning of a night shift).”<br />

Te Whatu Ora Waitaha said it<br />

was always open to feedback and<br />

suggestions that would help keep<br />

staff safe as they arrive and leave<br />

their workplace.<br />

Kanohi: ‘He was cruising like a shark<br />

• From page 1<br />

This was probably out of<br />

shame and to protect her family.<br />

<strong>The</strong> effect on her mother and<br />

family had been devastating.<br />

<strong>The</strong> attacks in 1992 were on<br />

a 51-year-old, and a woman in<br />

her mid-20s, who was attacked<br />

twice, the first an attempted rape<br />

after he broke into her house<br />

in February, the second when<br />

he again broke in and this time<br />

raped her a few days before<br />

Christmas.<br />

It was the courage of her<br />

five-year-old daughter who<br />

was asleep in bed with the<br />

woman which led to Kanohi’s<br />

capture, <strong>The</strong> girl phoned her<br />

grandmother during the attack,<br />

saying a man was attacking<br />

“mummy”. During his escape<br />

from the property he ended up<br />

in the yard of a nearby resident<br />

who was alerted by his security<br />

lights going on. He and Kanohi<br />

wrestled on the ground until<br />

police responding to the rape<br />

arrived.<br />

After his arrest, the woman<br />

was horrified to find Kanohi was<br />

the man who had come to her<br />

door a year before, claiming to<br />

have run out of petrol. She let<br />

him use the phone and he left a<br />

$2 coin. Clearly now stalking her,<br />

he returned two or three times<br />

over the following months with<br />

JEKYLL AND HYDE: Lawrence Kanohi was best man at a<br />

friend’s wedding during the 80s.<br />

sweets for her two daughters,<br />

whom they came to call “the<br />

lolly man”.<br />

<strong>The</strong> woman told <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong> this<br />

week she received a letter on<br />

<strong>January</strong> 16 from the Department<br />

of Corrections notifying her<br />

Kanohi had died.<br />

“I felt a sense of relief,” she<br />

said.<br />

She was told last year he<br />

had been paroled to a secure<br />

dementia centre on the outskirts<br />

of Christchurch, despite she<br />

and other victims opposing his<br />

parole over the decades.<br />

It had made her uneasy<br />

and anxious; she lives on the<br />

outskirts of Christchurch now<br />

and she always wondered if she<br />

might see or bump into him on<br />

the supervised visits she was told<br />

he was allowed to do.<br />

Kanohi’s death had released<br />

her from that, but she had spent<br />

years suffering from the<br />

attacks.<br />

“It affected me so badly, it<br />

changed how I saw people, it<br />

affected my parenting. It really<br />

affected my parenting. I couldn’t<br />

relax and enjoy being a parent,”<br />

she said.<br />

But finally seeing “a really<br />

good counsellor” had turned<br />

her life around. She was told<br />

she hadn’t moved out of fight or<br />

flight. She couldn’t relax.<br />

“I thought I was going mad.<br />

It was all of the effects of what<br />

had happened to me. I’m not the<br />

same person I was. It changed<br />

how I saw people, trusting<br />

relationships,” she said.<br />

Kanohi was a Jekyll and Hyde.<br />

He was well liked by his friends,<br />

he worked as a truck driver and<br />

his boss said he was one of his<br />

better workers. He was president<br />

of a softball club and coached the<br />

women’s team.<br />

He was generous<br />

with his money,<br />

and women<br />

adored him.<br />

Even after<br />

his arrest and<br />

the compelling<br />

evidence against<br />

him, some<br />

women who<br />

Brendan<br />

Bateman<br />

were close to him still refused to<br />

believe what he had done.<br />

During and after the brutal<br />

attacks on women, Kanohi<br />

spoke to his victims as if they<br />

were partaking with what was<br />

happening to them.<br />

After raping the 51-year-old<br />

he told her: “You are a very nice<br />

person. I wish I could have met<br />

you in different circumstances.”<br />

Before he left, he even asked her<br />

for a kiss. She refused.<br />

“I think he thought of himself<br />

as Mr Wonderful,” she said.<br />

Retired detective Brendan<br />

Bateman, who headed the<br />

Kanohi investigation, said he<br />

was the most devious, cunning<br />

and calculating criminal he dealt<br />

with.<br />

“He was a jovial, likeable<br />

character you would see playing<br />

the guitar in a sports club. But<br />

behind that he was cruising<br />

like a shark waiting to attack,”<br />

he said.<br />

Videos to watch<br />

Bateman recalls going to the<br />

police station cells in the hours<br />

after his arrest. Kanohi was<br />

asleep, and woke when the cell<br />

door opened. “Gidday Brendan,”<br />

Kanohi said, remembering the<br />

detective who had dealt with<br />

him years before.<br />

Kanohi was relaxed and calm<br />

as if nothing had happened,<br />

Bateman said.<br />

One woman spoke this week<br />

of an intruder, almost certainly<br />

Kanohi, trying to break into<br />

her St Albans house on two<br />

occasions while she was home<br />

alone, just after hers partner had<br />

left for work in the early hours of<br />

the morning. Her house also had<br />

been previously burgled. Thirty<br />

years on, it still affects her.<br />

It would be no coincidence<br />

their home had been previously<br />

burgled. She believes Kanohi<br />

had been watching the house,<br />

striking when he saw her partner<br />

leave for work.<br />

A few minutes later she heard<br />

a window rattling, definitely<br />

someone trying to break in.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re were no cellphones in<br />

those days and I didn’t think<br />

I could get to the phone in the<br />

hallway. I had the choice of<br />

going to the hallway and not<br />

making it in time to the phone<br />

or barricading myself in the<br />

bedroom (with furniture),” she<br />

told <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong>.<br />

She barricaded herself in the<br />

bedroom.<br />

Footprints were found the<br />

following morning on the<br />

outside windowsill. <strong>The</strong> intruder<br />

had been standing there and<br />

‘I think he thought of<br />

himself as Mr Wonderful’<br />

opened the small window above<br />

the main window. But Kanohi<br />

was short and weighed 109kgs.<br />

He wouldn’t have been able to<br />

reach down to open the main<br />

window latches and he was too<br />

fat to get in through the smaller<br />

window.<br />

About two weeks later there<br />

was another break-in attempt,<br />

again just after the woman’s<br />

partner had gone to work. This<br />

time the intruder used part of a<br />

clothesline on the property to get<br />

better leverage and position in<br />

a bid to open the main window,<br />

but again he failed to get in.<br />

“He was a fat little fellow so<br />

he couldn’t get through (the<br />

smaller window) and he wasn’t<br />

tall enough to reach down to the<br />

other window, so he came back<br />

and tried another way of getting<br />

in,” she said.<br />

After Kanohi was arrested<br />

police found in his car glove box<br />

a family photo taken during the<br />

burglary of the woman’s home.<br />

Of Kanohi’s death, she said: “It<br />

does feel like a relief even though<br />

it was 30 years ago. I didn’t feel<br />

a tinge of sadness when I heard<br />

about it.<br />

“What happened changed the<br />

way I feel about security forever.<br />

We upped (security) 1000 times<br />

after what happened, even<br />

now when I am home (alone) I<br />

am always very wary. So what<br />

happened 30 years ago has<br />

always affected me.”<br />

And would the world have<br />

been a better place if Kanohi had<br />

never been born, as some people<br />

have told <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong>: “Yes I do<br />

agree with that,” she said.<br />

Beckenham Loop


• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

A 14-YEAR-OLD boy involved<br />

in a six-month-long crime spree,<br />

some of which he posted on<br />

social media, says he misses<br />

school and the sports he’s now<br />

banned from playing.<br />

<strong>The</strong> boy appeared at the<br />

Christchurch Youth Court last<br />

week where he was sentenced<br />

on 84 charges which related to<br />

stealing vehicles, assaulting people<br />

and aggravated robbery.<br />

<strong>The</strong> court heard a pattern<br />

of the boy’s offending usually<br />

involved him and associates<br />

stealing people’s cars, driving<br />

dangerously while failing to<br />

stop for police and kicking<br />

and punching members of the<br />

public.<br />

“I think you like to think<br />

you’re older and tougher than<br />

you are. You are a little boy,”<br />

Judge Jane McMeeken told him.<br />

Judge McMeeken highlighted<br />

the role that social media and<br />

peer pressure play, particularly<br />

with young offenders.<br />

“You need to understand<br />

none of it’s real. Driving fast<br />

cars, that’s a tiny part of your<br />

life, the rest you’re in a police cell<br />

missing your family.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> judge said if she read out<br />

all the victim impact statements<br />

from the boy’s offending, she<br />

would be reading for an hour<br />

which wouldn’t be helpful.<br />

However, she said one victim<br />

has a medical condition, causing<br />

them to suffer from pain and<br />

anxiety and had spent three<br />

years working to pay off their<br />

car, which was stolen by the boy.<br />

<strong>The</strong> victim was planning to<br />

complete an education course<br />

this year but now can’t afford it<br />

as they have to borrow money<br />

for their car.<br />

“Please stop and consider how<br />

badly you are impacting others<br />

with what you are doing,” the<br />

victim’s statement said.<br />

Teen sentenced on 84 charges<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

TWELVE YEARS ago, Trudie<br />

Knight was co-running a<br />

successful business, was a good<br />

mother to her son and stepkids<br />

and was considered a good<br />

worker.<br />

On Tuesday, she was sentenced<br />

to 12 months home<br />

detention at a residential facility,<br />

after her marriage broke down<br />

and she got caught up in a world<br />

of drugs and firearms.<br />

Knight appeared at the<br />

district court where Judge Tom<br />

Gilbert wished her luck for staying<br />

off the meth as she left the<br />

dock to begin her sentence.<br />

<strong>The</strong> court heard how Knight<br />

had issues with drug use in the<br />

past but had remained offence<br />

free for 13 or so years while she<br />

was married.<br />

However, following the end of<br />

Knight’s marriage, her life became<br />

“derailed” as she slipped<br />

back to her old ways with a<br />

methamphetamine relapse.<br />

This was worsened by Knight<br />

getting into a relationship with<br />

her meth dealer.<br />

According to the summary of<br />

facts Knight was pulled over by<br />

school was willing to welcome<br />

him back and provide the support<br />

he needs.<br />

<strong>The</strong> court also heard of the<br />

boy being banned from sports<br />

he loves as a consequence of his<br />

actions.<br />

His lawyer said the boy<br />

started off as a follower of the<br />

offending but quickly became<br />

the leader, egged on by peer<br />

pressure and comments on<br />

social media.<br />

However, his lawyer said he<br />

expressed regret and empathy<br />

for his victims and had been doing<br />

well in custody.<br />

police in August 2021 for driving<br />

without her lights on.<br />

What police didn’t initially<br />

know was that Knight was suspended<br />

for driving, had meth in<br />

her bra and purse, a pistol in the<br />

vehicle’s rear seat pocket, and<br />

a loaded shotgun wrapped in a<br />

shirt – all of which she admitted<br />

voluntarily.<br />

A few weeks later, in October<br />

2021, police completed a raid of<br />

her flat which led to five people<br />

getting arrested. Police found<br />

meth, meth pipes, multiple<br />

firearms and ammunition, cannabis<br />

plants and cannabis pipes,<br />

“This is a young man that’s<br />

got potential, it is critical that<br />

potential isn’t wasted.”<br />

His lawyer also highlighted<br />

the boy’s unwavering support<br />

from his family as both his<br />

parents and step-parents were<br />

present in court.<br />

<strong>The</strong> judge agreed and said in<br />

Youth Court they don’t usually<br />

see a mum and dad, let alone<br />

step-parents taking time out of<br />

their lives to come and support<br />

offenders.<br />

<strong>The</strong> boy hadn’t seen much of<br />

his family and was only allowed<br />

a 30-minute visit with them on<br />

Christmas day.<br />

Police pushed for a supervision<br />

with a residence sentence of<br />

six months, however, the boy’s<br />

lawyer encouraged the judge to<br />

reduce that to four months so<br />

the boy could start school at the<br />

beginning of term two.<br />

Judge McMeeken agreed it<br />

would be good for the boy, who<br />

had been anxious about missing<br />

out on school to get back to his<br />

education.<br />

But she warned the boy<br />

that he needs to put in work to<br />

change his ways.<br />

“We can’t punish you to be<br />

good,” she said.<br />

Judge McMeeken imposed<br />

a supervision with residence<br />

sentence of four months<br />

followed by a six-month<br />

supervision order.<br />

some of which Knight said<br />

belonged to her.<br />

Knight’s phone was searched,<br />

leading to additional charges of<br />

supplying and offering to supply<br />

meth to others, an estimated<br />

total of 13.5 grams worth.<br />

Judge Gilbert said Knight had<br />

shown good work skills and<br />

ethic and her outlook was positive<br />

if she can stay away from<br />

meth.<br />

He warned Knight of the seriousness<br />

of her offending, particularly<br />

the dangers of having<br />

loaded firearms and supplying<br />

meth into the community.<br />

killed while volunteering in<br />

war-torn Ukraine has been<br />

remembered by his distraught<br />

parents as an “independent freethinker”<br />

who stood up against<br />

Russia’s “immoral” war.<br />

Dame Sue and Professor Phil<br />

Bagshaw confirmed yesterday<br />

that the body of their 47-year-old<br />

son Andrew has been found.<br />

He was killed alongside British<br />

volunteer Christopher Parry, 28,<br />

while trying to rescue an elderly<br />

woman in an area of intense<br />

military action in Soledar when<br />

their vehicle was hit by an<br />

artillery shell.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y vowed his “death shall<br />

not be in vain” and say Russia’s<br />

war amounts to genocide.<br />

Said Phil: “You’ll forgive us for<br />

not looking the part here.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> Ukrainian authorities<br />

and government officials in New<br />

Zealand and London have been<br />

working hard to learn more<br />

details but little further is known<br />

about the circumstances of his<br />

death.<br />

“Andrew selflessly took many<br />

personal risks and saved many<br />

lives; we love him and are very<br />

proud indeed of what he did.”<br />

<strong>The</strong>y said it will be some time<br />

before Andrew’s remains can be<br />

returned to New Zealand due<br />

to the official legal processes in<br />

Ukraine.<br />

“We intend that his death shall<br />

not be in vain,” the family said.<br />

“We are among many parents<br />

who grieve the deaths of their<br />

sons and daughters.”<br />

Sue said they had<br />

communicated with their son<br />

over WhatsApp frequently.<br />

However, he stopped getting<br />

in touch regularly from about<br />

September or October last year.<br />

“He was probably getting into<br />

more dangerous work . . . We’d<br />

have rather if he communicated<br />

PHOTO: RNZ<br />

more regularly,” his mother said.<br />

“His sister felt that he was<br />

probably getting into the more<br />

dangerous work then and didn’t<br />

want to worry us . . . he didn’t<br />

want to get us upset.”<br />

Phil said: “We’ve known that<br />

something like this was likely to<br />

happen for a long time. It’s only<br />

very recently that they’ve been<br />

able to say to us that there’s any<br />

degree of certainty that they<br />

know where he was or what had<br />

happened to him. It was very<br />

recent news.<br />

“We were told by the New<br />

GRIEVING<br />

Dame<br />

Sue and<br />

Professor<br />

Phil<br />

Bagshaw<br />

confirmed<br />

the body<br />

of their son<br />

Andrew<br />

(right) has<br />

been found<br />

in Ukraine.<br />

Zealand police first, and then the<br />

Foreign Office in London, that<br />

there is a high degree of certainty<br />

that he’s dead.”<br />

Phil said Andrew’s body<br />

was in the mortuary at the<br />

children’s hospital in Kyiv. <strong>The</strong><br />

grieving pair addressed media<br />

yesterday and spoke gently, but<br />

with strength and composure.<br />

Tears welled up Phil’s eyes as he<br />

remembered his son.<br />

“It’s incredible what he<br />

achieved in such a short space of<br />

time,” he said.<br />

“He was an intellectual. He’d<br />

think about things on his own.<br />

We tried to convince him not<br />

to go [but] we rapidly realised<br />

telling him that would be a waste<br />

of time.<br />

“We’re told by hundreds of<br />

people [that] he served under<br />

the most extraordinary of<br />

circumstances. He would<br />

evacuate anybody in danger,<br />

taking in medicines and food.<br />

He even helped abandoned pets<br />

and fed them.”<br />

Sue said her son was “an<br />

amazing man with so much<br />

talent.”<br />

She said while it has been<br />

difficult, they have been<br />

communicating with the Parry<br />

family in the UK.<br />

<strong>The</strong> parents now want to talk<br />

to people at the UN with their<br />

“fancy words and nice suits” to<br />

shake them up.<br />

A memorial service date has<br />

not been set. “We know some<br />

people would like to give flowers,<br />

but I’m sure Andrew would feel<br />

the money would be better spent<br />

donating to Ukraine.”<br />

Donating to the children’s<br />

hospital in Kyiv is one way to<br />

contribute, the family said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> parents called for<br />

nations of the world to stop<br />

the “immoral war” and help<br />

Ukrainians “rid their homeland<br />

of an aggressor.” – NZ Herald<br />

TRIMMING TREE TOPS AT 65<br />

KORU NUTRITION<br />

To be out in one’s garden<br />

is, as I am sure any keen<br />

gardener will agree, so<br />

life-giving. Fresh air, the<br />

different shades and colours<br />

that nature provides, not<br />

to mention the produce<br />

that a garden can provide<br />

renews and refreshes. This<br />

is definitely the case for<br />

Cherry.<br />

“<strong>The</strong>re is nothing I love<br />

more than getting some<br />

dirt under my fingernails.<br />

Despite my years, I am still<br />

young. I think it is impressive<br />

to be 65 and still able to climb<br />

up a tree to give it a trim.”<br />

“As you start to get on, I<br />

think it does require you to<br />

start to look for things that<br />

will give you a little bit more<br />

support. I love to eat the<br />

produce off my land but if it’s<br />

been a hard day outside or I<br />

just sit at my computer for<br />

too long in the evening, I find<br />

I can get pretty knackered. I<br />

love to rub Koru FX into my<br />

joints and muscles just to<br />

relax.<br />

“It is a family thing. My<br />

sister got my brother and I<br />

onto the product. When my<br />

sister showed me an article<br />

of someone else who loved<br />

the product, I thought, ‘I’ve<br />

been in sales a long time,<br />

surely there will be a catch.”’<br />

“I did my research and<br />

was pleasantly surprised by<br />

what I found. It turned out<br />

that Koru Nutrition was a<br />

New Zealand company and<br />

that they only use natural<br />

products. What about that is<br />

not to love?”<br />

Containing high quality<br />

oils like calendula, arnica,<br />

manuka and peppermint,<br />

along with 12 others, Koru<br />

FX provides the perfect<br />

formulation for supporting<br />

joints and muscles.<br />

Koru FX cream by Koru<br />

Nutrition has become NZ’s<br />

#1 joint and muscle support<br />

cream. With over two and a<br />

half thousand 5 star reviews,<br />

Koru FX is showing itself to<br />

be a favourite in many New<br />

Zealand households.<br />

“As a gardener, I love to<br />

eat and use natural products<br />

whenever possible. I don’t<br />

want to be rubbing chemicals<br />

and who knows what into<br />

Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional. Koru Nutrition, Christchurch.<br />

my skin. With Koru FX by<br />

Koru Nutrition, I don’t need<br />

to worry about that.”<br />

“It is a beautiful cream and<br />

I am always recommending<br />

it to friends. Plant the seed<br />

and spread the word I say.”<br />

Thursday <strong>January</strong> <strong>26</strong> <strong>2023</strong> <strong>The</strong> <strong>Star</strong><br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

AN ORGANISED group of<br />

unofficial police intelligence<br />

gatherers has been formed in<br />

the Cass Bay – Governors Bay<br />

area to help police intercept<br />

drivers for ‘anti-social’ driving<br />

behaviour.<br />

It has contributed to nine<br />

different drivers and car owners<br />

being dealt with over the past<br />

five months for a number of<br />

driving offences, including doing<br />

burnouts and skids, as well<br />

as failing to give information to<br />

police. Several cars have also<br />

been impounded.<br />

<strong>The</strong> informal group was<br />

formed after a meeting<br />

between police, bay residents<br />

and community leaders about<br />

how best to deal with bad<br />

driver behaviour in the area,<br />

particularly between Lyttelton<br />

and Governors Bay.<br />

A member, Cass Bay resident<br />

Scott Adams, said he knew of<br />

six cars stopped near Rāpaki<br />

for excessive noise, which were<br />

probably intercepted as a result<br />

of information the group had<br />

provided.<br />

Sergeant Anna Partridge said<br />

it was a challenge putting a stop<br />

to speeding and noisy driving<br />

because police didn’t have the<br />

resources to patrol all the time<br />

and, by the time locals report an<br />

incident, the perpetrators have<br />

often moved on.<br />

<strong>The</strong> partnership with locals<br />

gathering information to send to<br />

police “helps us see patterns so<br />

we can take appropriate action”<br />

at the best times, she said.<br />

“We thank locals for their<br />

help, which has allowed<br />

police to obtain sufficient<br />

evidence to impound and<br />

green sticker vehicles.<br />

(It’s) building trust and<br />

confidence with the local<br />

community.”<br />

Said Adams: “<strong>The</strong><br />

boy-racer problem has<br />

probably got worse since<br />

was reopened and lockdown was<br />

lifted.”<br />

It was a problem all the way<br />

from Sumner to Lyttelton to<br />

Dyers Pass and Gebbies Pass,<br />

with drivers treating the roads<br />

like a race track, he said.<br />

Said Partridge: “<strong>The</strong><br />

harbour basin also acts<br />

a bit like an auditorium,<br />

with driving<br />

noise amplified around<br />

the<br />

hills, making it a<br />

particular problem.”<br />

distress the behaviour caused<br />

number of prosecutions sent a<br />

clear message that anti-social<br />

driving would not be tolerated.<br />

Several other vehicles have<br />

also been identified and are still<br />

being actively being sought by<br />

police.<br />

Anyone with information<br />

that could assist in identifying<br />

those involved can contact<br />

Top Club<br />

members<br />

reopen<br />

institution<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

THE LYTTELTON Top Club<br />

will reopen from 2pm today<br />

after members accepted a plan<br />

to resurrect the 150-year-old<br />

institution.<br />

Less than a month ago the club<br />

announced it was closing, but a<br />

“white knight” group of locals has<br />

stepped up to save it.<br />

<strong>The</strong> group – four members of<br />

the club with business experience<br />

– has taken over governance of<br />

the club.<br />

Spokesperson Dwayne Pool<br />

said the group put its rescue plan<br />

to members at a special general<br />

meeting earlier this month and it<br />

was accepted.<br />

Pool said the new governance<br />

group has worked with engineers<br />

and insurers to develop a maintenance<br />

and repair plan that has<br />

enabled the reopening.<br />

“We have been in contact with<br />

all the club’s suppliers, and all<br />

are happy to continue supplying<br />

goods and services, so thank you<br />

to them all,” he said.<br />

He also said previous staff were<br />

given first option on positions.<br />

Space quest for answers on the<br />

fastest explosions in the universe<br />

SOLVING THE mystery of what<br />

powers the fastest explosions<br />

in the universe is a passion<br />

for Canterbury University<br />

researcher Dr Ryan Ridden-<br />

Harper.<br />

<strong>The</strong> astrophysicist and<br />

postdoctoral researcher’s latest<br />

project is taking him to the<br />

extreme ends of physics in a<br />

quest to uncover explanations for<br />

the universe’s fastest explosions,<br />

which space telescopes detect as<br />

flashes or bursts that rapidly fade<br />

away.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se types of transient<br />

astronomical events come and<br />

go so quickly that they are easily<br />

missed and difficult to observe.<br />

Ridden-Harper says while it is<br />

thought exploding stars, massive<br />

neutron stars and black holes<br />

could generate the explosions,<br />

no-one knows for sure what<br />

powers them.<br />

“I’ve always been curious about<br />

how the natural world works,”<br />

he says.<br />

“After I first looked out into<br />

space the mystery and wonder<br />

captured me. While all aspects<br />

of astronomy are fascinating, I<br />

found the idea of watching stars<br />

in galaxies millions of<br />

light years away explode<br />

and change before our eyes<br />

incredible. More amazing still<br />

is the extreme energies and<br />

physics that are involved in these<br />

explosions.”<br />

Ridden-Harper has been<br />

awarded a Te Putea Rangahau<br />

Marsden Fast-<strong>Star</strong>t grant<br />

of $360,000 to help extend<br />

knowledge of this phenomena.<br />

“I’m excited to be starting this<br />

project which represents the<br />

culmination of what I’ve been<br />

working on since I was a PhD<br />

student in 2016,” he says.<br />

“I’ve spent a lot of time<br />

building the tools we need,<br />

and now we’re ready for this<br />

next phase.” <strong>The</strong> Marsden<br />

grant will be used to kick<br />

start a Canterbury University<br />

astrophysics research group,<br />

supporting a number of students.<br />

Using novel analysis<br />

techniques, the research team<br />

will delve into archival data<br />

from two space telescopes –<br />

Kepler and Nasa’s Transiting<br />

Exoplanet Survey Satellite – to<br />

find previously undetected<br />

transient events and create a<br />

comprehensive survey of the<br />

fastest explosions in the universe.<br />

“Most transient events we<br />

know to exist last for at least a<br />

couple of days,” Ridden-Harper<br />

said.<br />

“With this project, we hope to<br />

find ones that will fade away in<br />

brightness in a day or less, down<br />

to an hour or so.<br />

“Working with international<br />

collaborators, we will then sort<br />

through our discoveries to find<br />

fast transients that occurred in<br />

distant galaxies.<br />

“We can then work with our<br />

theoretical astrophysicists to<br />

delve deeper into what could<br />

be powering these really fast<br />

explosions.<br />

“In this project we’ll use<br />

telescopes around the world to<br />

follow up our discoveries. <strong>The</strong>se,<br />

combined with the Kepler and<br />

TESS data, cover large sections<br />

of the sky over a long timeframe,<br />

making this the most in-depth<br />

survey of its kind to date in a<br />

rapidly evolving area<br />

of astronomy.”<br />

Possums show they can learn from each other<br />

SOCIAL LEARNING is<br />

possum-able, world-first research<br />

suggests.<br />

Using a $9 dog treat toy,<br />

Canterbury University master’s<br />

student Emma Godfrey<br />

has conducted research<br />

showing, for the first time,<br />

that common brushtail<br />

possums can learn from<br />

their peers.<br />

“As far as we were able<br />

to find, this study is the<br />

first to have looked into<br />

the social learning abilities<br />

of common brushtail<br />

possums, which is very exciting,”<br />

Godfrey said.<br />

<strong>The</strong> toy served as a puzzle,<br />

with five different coloured<br />

Emma<br />

Godfrey<br />

domes. Two were ‘target domes’,<br />

containing chocolate hazelnut<br />

spread.<br />

“We were trying to teach them<br />

to open the target domes to get to<br />

the rewards as an incentive<br />

for learning,” said Godfrey.<br />

Meanwhile, ‘observer’<br />

possums in adjacent<br />

pens watched the<br />

‘demonstrator’ possums<br />

for five nights before<br />

getting the chance to solve<br />

the puzzle themselves.<br />

While two of the eight<br />

demonstrators solved the<br />

puzzle on the first night, and<br />

three succeeded on later nights,<br />

the possums who watched them<br />

did much better. All 15 observers<br />

succeeded in solving the puzzle<br />

on the first night, strongly<br />

suggesting they learnt from<br />

watching the demonstrators.<br />

Although the experiment<br />

sounds fun, it has potentially<br />

serious implications for pest<br />

eradication in New Zealand.<br />

“I think the more we can<br />

understand about how possums<br />

learn (or stoats or rats, which<br />

New Zealand also aims to<br />

eradicate), this can hopefully<br />

provide us with ways of<br />

improving current methods<br />

or creating new ways of pest<br />

control,” said Godfrey.<br />

“New Zealand’s biodiversity is<br />

heavily impacted by possums so<br />

any new knowledge that can help<br />

with eradication is important<br />

in order to protect our native<br />

species.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> next stage is to explore<br />

whether possums can also learn<br />

from each other what to stay<br />

away from.<br />

Godfrey’s dream continues<br />

with a UC Aho Hīnātore Accelerator<br />

scholarship, paving the<br />

way for a PhD.<br />

Meanwhile, her current research<br />

is attracting attention.<br />

“If I look back on when<br />

I started and we were just<br />

beginning to design the<br />

experiment, I never would’ve<br />

expected the interest people<br />

have shown in it, so it’s a wild<br />

experience really.”<br />

TRAINING PROGRAMME<br />

weeK Three: Knuckling down and some tips on nutrition and weight loss<br />

In week 3 the early excitement of the City 2 Surf project you have undertaken is wearing off. You may not have<br />

sensed a big improvement in fitness levels yet and other commitments are getting in the way of training. After<br />

your determined start the first doubts set in: “Can I do this?” This is the time to knuckle down. You need another<br />

2 or 3 consistent weeks before you notice a significant improvement in fitness and energy levels and perhaps<br />

some noticeable weight loss. Once that happens you will be well on your way. <strong>The</strong> best time of day to exercise is<br />

early morning. It is good to get it out of the way and it will energise you for the rest of the day. Later in the day you<br />

might just feel that little bit of fatigue or things crop up which will tempt you to say “tomorrow is another day….”<br />

This can easily become habit and before you know it you have lost one or 2 training sessions every week. Of<br />

course you might have a good reason for not being able to get out early. Other times of the day for your training<br />

session are perfectly fine too but good planning is required. A light snack (toast/bread, fruit) before your early<br />

morning training session is generally recommended to assist your blood sugar levels. This also applies if you<br />

exercise later in the morning or afternoon. Breakfast or a meal after training will assist with replenishing energy<br />

stores. Exercising before going to bed might keep you awake for a while if you are a light sleeper.<br />

To achieve this goal you<br />

need to develop some<br />

awareness around the<br />

basic requirements of<br />

exercising for health<br />

and fitness. First and<br />

foremost this has to do<br />

with 3 key principles:<br />

1. How often do you train? To<br />

improve your level of health and<br />

fitness you will need to aim for 4<br />

sessions per week. 2 or 3 sessions<br />

per week will only maintain what you<br />

have and 1 session per week is definitely<br />

not sufficient.<br />

2. How long are your sessions? <strong>The</strong><br />

duration of your sessions will generally<br />

build towards between 30 and 50 minutes<br />

with one longer session of 60-80 minutes.<br />

3. What is the right intensity to train at?<br />

<strong>The</strong> good thing about the programme<br />

is that all your runs will be done at<br />

submaximal pace, also called conversation<br />

pace. That means a pace where you can still<br />

talk. If you can’t talk you are going too fast<br />

and you are likely to come to a grinding halt<br />

sooner or later.<br />

This programme and accompanying information are written<br />

as a guide only. If you are concerned about your health at<br />

any stage please undergo a health check with your GP.<br />

TIP oF <strong>The</strong> weeK<br />

If you need to lose some weight, then this<br />

training programme will help you. But it<br />

will only do so if you pay attention to your<br />

nutrition at the same time. Healthy choices<br />

include bread and or cereals for breakfast,<br />

sandwiches or a salad for lunch and an evening<br />

meal consisting of plenty of vegetables with<br />

fish, chicken or lean meat. Pasta and rice are<br />

also good staple foods for active people.<br />

One helping and avoidance of rich desserts<br />

will assist your weight loss. A healthy snack<br />

mid morning and afternoon will help you get<br />

through the day. Fruit is always an excellent<br />

choice. Avoid fatty foods and snacks with<br />

refined sugars. If you need help with your<br />

nutrition or weight loss this might be a good<br />

time to have a consultation with an expert, like<br />

one of the Sports Clinic nutritionists.<br />

Wilding Park serves up masters, Davis Cup<br />

will play in<br />

the Tennis<br />

New Zealand<br />

Masters<br />

champs at<br />

Wilding Park.<br />

• By Diane Keenan<br />

WILDING PARK will host major tennis<br />

events in the next two weeks, starting<br />

with the Tennis New Zealand Masters<br />

championships and culminating with the<br />

Davis Cup tie between New Zealand and<br />

Bulgaria at Waitangi weekend.<br />

Said Tennis Canterbury competitions<br />

co-ordinator Tom Paine: “It’s super<br />

exciting for us to bring opportunities to the<br />

local tennis community either playing in<br />

the Tennis New Zealand championships<br />

for masters or as spectators at the Davis<br />

Cup tie.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> masters championships for players<br />

aged over 30 started yesterday and will<br />

finish on Sunday. It has attracted players<br />

from throughout New Zealand.<br />

Paine said many of the players have<br />

competed at the national and regional<br />

representative level, including a “who’s<br />

who” of the Canterbury tennis community.<br />

Canterbury tennis veteran<br />

Dave Meredith joins his sons<br />

Matt, Tim and James to contest<br />

national titles alongside “100 club”<br />

members Remi and Joelene Feneon,<br />

Vern Aubrey, Mark Belcher, Peter<br />

Hampton, Shirley Haig and Sally<br />

Moorfield.<br />

Moorfield is the top seed for the 65 and<br />

over singles and will combine with her<br />

long-time partner, Shirley Haig, for the<br />

doubles. <strong>The</strong> Merediths are competing in<br />

singles and doubles with Dave in the 75<br />

and over grade and youngest son James is<br />

the top seed in the over 30 grade. James<br />

and Tim are top seeds in the over 35<br />

doubles.<br />

“A number of the Canterbury contingent<br />

have more than 100 single premier<br />

interclub wins to their credit. It is pleasing<br />

to see a strong representation of local<br />

legends of the game in this tournament,”<br />

Paine said.<br />

Paine said the Wilding Park outdoor<br />

courts are in great condition for both<br />

events. Tennis Canterbury is predicting a<br />

sell-out crowd of about 600 each day for its<br />

Davis Cup World Group 1 play-off against<br />

Bulgaria on February 4 and 5.<br />

Wilding Park has a long history of<br />

hosting Davis Cup ties. However, it has not<br />

seen an event since a 5-0 defeat of Pakistan<br />

in 2016. New Zealand has hosted its last<br />

two home ties in the United States due to<br />

Covid-19 border restrictions. <strong>The</strong> winner<br />

of the tie will compete in a World Group 1<br />

tie in September, while the loser will drop<br />

to World Group 2.<br />

EXPERIENCE: Two Canterbury golfers will compete for a chance to play at Royal Liverpool in July. Inset – Ryan Fox during the 150th British Open.<br />

Amateurs tee-rific chance<br />

to play <strong>The</strong> Open course<br />

A COUPLE of casual<br />

nine-hole games of midweek<br />

golf with friends have earned<br />

two Canterbury golfers a once<br />

in a lifetime shot.<br />

Helen Williamson who plays<br />

at the Pegasus club and Yusuke<br />

Imaizumi from the Russley<br />

club will play for the chance to<br />

travel to England for the world<br />

invitational golf tournament to<br />

be held before the <strong>The</strong> Open at<br />

Royal Liverpool from July 16-23.<br />

Williamson, 52, and<br />

Imaizumi, 24, were randomly<br />

selected as the monthly winners<br />

of a promotion run by Golf New<br />

Zealand.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Make Time Play 9<br />

initiative runs throughout the<br />

summer. To enter golfers of all<br />

ages and skill levels submit a<br />

GOOD SHOT: Helen Williamson and Yusuke Imaizumi will tee off at the Make Time Play 9<br />

final during the New Zealand Open in March.<br />

New Zealand Open. <strong>The</strong>y will<br />

join seven other lucky winners<br />

from around New Zealand who<br />

will tee off for nine holes at<br />

Millbrook Resort. <strong>The</strong> two best<br />

players will win trips to the 151st<br />

Open to take part in <strong>The</strong> R&A<br />

9-Hole Challenge. <strong>The</strong> final in<br />

England will feature 42 ninehole<br />

players from 21 countries.<br />

Williamson, who took up the<br />

game in her mid-20s and now<br />

plays off a 15 handicap, and<br />

Imaizumi, who has been playing<br />

since he was 15 and has a scratch<br />

handicap, both admit winning<br />

a trip to Queenstown wasn’t on<br />

their minds when they signed<br />

up for the chance to take part in<br />

their qualifying rounds.<br />

“Just winning a trip to<br />

Queenstown is an amazing prize<br />

. . . let alone being in with a<br />

chance to go and play the leadin<br />

event for one of the world’s<br />

most special golfing majors,”<br />

Williamson said.<br />

Said Imaizumi: “I feel a<br />

bit like Ryan Fox. I’ll certainly<br />

be hitting the driving range<br />

and putting greens over the<br />

coming months to get in a bit<br />

of extra practice as there’s a<br />

lot on the line for winning.”<br />

Golf New Zealand<br />

development general manager<br />

Thiem Nguyen called the Make<br />

Time Play 9 initiative a “money<br />

can’t buy experience”. It has<br />

so far attracted about 220,000<br />

entries nationwide.<br />

“For two lucky Kiwi golfers,<br />

they will have the opportunity<br />

to play on the same golf course<br />

as Ryan Fox and the best<br />

professional golfers in the world<br />

for the Open Championship,”<br />

said Nguyen. I know that Helen<br />

and Yusuke, along with the<br />

other qualifying finalists, will be<br />

excited about the Queenstown<br />

experience and will practicing<br />

incredibly hard over the coming<br />

weeks to sharpen up their games,<br />

with an eye to securing that<br />

elusive spot to play in the world<br />

finals.<br />

•<strong>The</strong> last draw for the<br />

play-off in Queenstown<br />

will be held next month.<br />

Electric limousine from Mercedes-Benz<br />

I’M WONDERING if there is<br />

any end to the way technology<br />

is developing, especially so with<br />

electric vehicles.<br />

Take the Mercedes-Benz AMG<br />

EQS 53 for example, it has an<br />

onboard presence that would<br />

keep an astronaut happy. <strong>The</strong>re<br />

are a multitude of specification<br />

features, it has a function for<br />

almost everything imaginable –<br />

especially for safety.<br />

Well, you would expect that,<br />

the EQS 53 lists at $310,900 in<br />

standard form, you can upsec it as<br />

well and if you go the whole hog<br />

you’ll deplete your bank balance<br />

to the tune of around $360,000.<br />

In true Mercedes-Benz S-Class<br />

fashion there are few equals on<br />

the road that have as much kit,<br />

and from the moment you sit in<br />

the driver’s seat you’ll be blown<br />

away with the space age look<br />

and feel of the interior, there are<br />

gadgets, buttons and displays<br />

everywhere.<br />

<strong>The</strong> digital dash panel<br />

extends across the width of the<br />

car, although the information<br />

graphics are only visible on the<br />

left hand side when there’s a<br />

passenger. However, the driver<br />

gets enough information to keep<br />

him/her occupied for every<br />

IT WAS OCTOBER 1988 and I<br />

had just boarded a flight back to<br />

Christchurch after fuelling my<br />

motorsport passion, spending a<br />

day watching the Nissan/Mobil<br />

500 Wellington Street Race.<br />

I had the window seat and<br />

was waiting for the remaining<br />

passengers, it was a full flight and<br />

the overhead lockers were packed<br />

with carry-on luggage.<br />

<strong>The</strong> two<br />

vacant seats<br />

beside me were<br />

eventually<br />

filled by Trevor<br />

Crowe and his<br />

partner Colleen,<br />

Crowe<br />

was holding a<br />

decent-sized<br />

cup, the one he earned that day<br />

from a third place finish and<br />

class win in a Group A BMW<br />

M3, sharing the drive with Mark<br />

Thatcher, son of British Prime<br />

Minister Margaret Thatcher. <strong>The</strong><br />

cup wouldn’t fit in the overhead<br />

locker so I offered to store it for<br />

the journey under the seat in<br />

front of me; Crowe was grateful.<br />

It wasn’t the first time I had<br />

met Crowe, I’d not long been<br />

evaluating motor vehicles for<br />

review and only weeks previously<br />

I had driven a turbocharged<br />

Skoda 120L that Crowe and<br />

his workshop technicians had<br />

modified for performance<br />

benefits.<br />

the graphics and controls is<br />

enormous. <strong>The</strong> only thing<br />

missing in the big S-Class EV is a<br />

chauffeur.<br />

Mercedes-Benz is exploring the<br />

future of the way we travel, and I<br />

guess being at the forefront of that<br />

technology will hold the company<br />

in good stead as EVs take control<br />

of our car buying decisions.<br />

<strong>The</strong> EQS 53 is powered by dual<br />

motors – one at the front and one<br />

at the rear – they have combined<br />

power output of 484kW with<br />

a colossal 950Nm of torque<br />

available from zero revolutions.<br />

Add in a 107.8kWh battery pack<br />

and you have the ingredients for<br />

power, acceleration and, more<br />

importantly, distance to travel<br />

between charges.<br />

Mercedes-Benz claims up to<br />

587km on a full charge. It would<br />

take around 60min to fast charge<br />

to 80 per cent from a designated<br />

charge port. In terms of charging<br />

from my home – well that’s a<br />

different story, such is the volume<br />

of energy that can be stored it’s<br />

simply not practical to try to<br />

charge from domestic supply; it<br />

would take a couple of days to<br />

charge from zero to 100 per cent.<br />

That being the case, a wall box<br />

or a three-phase system would<br />

be the most suitable method<br />

Crowe and I got talking again<br />

on that flight and, as astute as<br />

ever, he noticed that I wasn’t<br />

overly comfortable as the aircraft<br />

descended through turbulence<br />

into a Canterbury nor’wester, his<br />

words I still cling to today when<br />

I’m flying and bumps are prevalent:<br />

“It’s all right, Ross, it will just<br />

fly through it!’’<br />

Of course, the news of that day<br />

was his performance in the street<br />

race, he and Thatcher punched<br />

well above their weight only to<br />

be beaten by some of the greatest<br />

names in world motorsport –<br />

formula one driver Emanuele<br />

Pirro and world touring car<br />

champion Roberto Ravaglia,<br />

MERCEDES-BENZ AMG EQS 53: Large luxury sedan that is<br />

solely powered by batteries and electric motors.<br />

domestically. Thankfully, such is<br />

the distance you get to travel on<br />

a full tank – figuratively speaking<br />

– I only had to make one fast<br />

charge and that was completed<br />

in good time while my wife and I<br />

carried out our weekly Pak’nSave<br />

grocery shop.<br />

Of course, all of the above<br />

relates to how you drive the EQS<br />

53, if you are throttle heavy you<br />

won’t get the distance, but the<br />

figures are still very impressive.<br />

So are those of its acceleration,<br />

Mercedes-Benz claims a 3.8sec<br />

standstill to 100km/h time. That’s<br />

about as quick as in any other<br />

car I’ve driven, launch from a<br />

standstill is simply amazing, the<br />

energy is instant and without any<br />

lag, the force will hold you back<br />

in your seat and, of course, all<br />

passengers. It’s a performance car<br />

of true genius, if only there were<br />

roads in New Zealand where you<br />

can explore its potential.<br />

I guess the unrestricted roads<br />

in Europe will allow some sort<br />

and Australian ex-formula one<br />

driver Larry Perkins and former<br />

F1 world champion Denny<br />

Hulme. As history has served<br />

to prove, the third place finish<br />

paved the way for Crowe’s win<br />

in the Asia-Pacific Touring Car<br />

Championship that year.<br />

of freedom, but for here it’s a<br />

temptation that would constantly<br />

need to be curbed.<br />

I took the test car inland west and<br />

enjoyed its silence and comfort.<br />

It has all those pacifying features<br />

that come in luxury cars, yet you<br />

always sense it wants to break free<br />

and deliver a performance drive. Of<br />

course, there are drive modes that<br />

can moderate the behaviour of the<br />

motors or liven them up in sport<br />

mode, but the reality is the EQS 53<br />

has performance that needs to be<br />

tamed.<br />

Pointed at some tricky corners<br />

you need to bear in mind<br />

that there is a lot of bulk and<br />

weight in the car. At 5.3m and<br />

2721kg it’s a big machine, but<br />

it is delicate underneath and<br />

extremely competent. Huge 21in<br />

Michelin tyres stick like glue<br />

and provide surety. Turn-in is<br />

precise, and body movement is<br />

minimal. A lot of the weight is<br />

carried underneath the seats and<br />

at just 1.5m tall there isn’t a lot<br />

That and Crowe’s long and<br />

illustrious motorsport career<br />

have all been documented in a<br />

new book – As the Crowe Flies,<br />

the Trevor Crowe Story. Written<br />

by well-known motoring and<br />

motorsport writer Steve Holmes,<br />

the book chronicles Crowe and<br />

the multitude of cars he has built,<br />

developed and raced throughout<br />

the years, and still does even into<br />

his late 70s.<br />

Not only does the book share<br />

chapters on Crowe’s hill climb,<br />

rallying and circuit and boat racing<br />

career, it shares his secrets to<br />

good health, which is important<br />

to keep mentally alert and physically<br />

capable while at the wheel<br />

• Price – Mercedes-Benz<br />

AMG EQS 53, $310,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

5<strong>26</strong>5mm; width, 19<strong>26</strong>mm;<br />

height, 1512mm<br />

• Configuration – Dual<br />

electro-synchronous<br />

motors, four-wheeldrive,<br />

484kW, 950Nm,<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance – 0-100km/h,<br />

3.8sec<br />

of gravitational force working<br />

against balance and composure.<br />

Most of all, though, is the ease<br />

at which the big AMG-inspired<br />

limousine travels. Even with all<br />

of its power it is easy to drive<br />

at all speeds, during my stopstart<br />

commute it dawdles with<br />

little indication of what fury lies<br />

underneath.<br />

What’s more it is very much<br />

Mercedes-Benz-like in terms<br />

of how it functions and the<br />

ergonomics are such that all<br />

occupants are cocooned in<br />

luxury. It must also be mentioned<br />

that the EQS 53 drives silently at<br />

all speeds. Sure, there are sounds<br />

through the air and off the big<br />

tyres but they aren’t dramatic,<br />

it is uncannily quiet and an<br />

experience to saviour.<br />

Mercedes-Benz isn’t putting its<br />

eggs all in one basket, there are<br />

hybrid options and at this stage<br />

plenty of petrol-only models in<br />

the line-up. I’m due to drive a<br />

plug-in hybrid soon, and if it is<br />

anything like the quality of the<br />

EQS 53 then I’m surely in for<br />

another treat.<br />

Written as Crowe would speak,<br />

As the Crowe Flies covers everything<br />

from his early days growing<br />

up around cars at the family’s<br />

Templeton service station, his<br />

engineering skills honed through<br />

an apprenticeship and, by sheer<br />

imagination, pioneering race car<br />

building ideas that have brought<br />

him major success in a wide<br />

periphery of motorsport.<br />

Most of the cars Crowe has<br />

raced are detailed in length, from<br />

his first competitive car – an MG<br />

J2 – through to the V8-powered<br />

monsters he designed and mostly<br />

built himself – Skoda, Toyota<br />

<strong>Star</strong>lets and Subaru Justy.<br />

Crowe is no stranger to<br />

Christchurch’s car sales<br />

infrastructure, he has been<br />

dealer for Skoda and Subaru,<br />

and today his CroweSport<br />

workshop is responsible for<br />

general day-to-day servicing and<br />

upgrade modifications to many<br />

varying brands. A chapter on the<br />

development of the Moorhouse<br />

Crowe can be seen racing at the<br />

What to ask a real estate agent<br />

Selling a home is a big life decision, both<br />

financially and emotionally. <strong>The</strong> journey<br />

can be a roller coaster, which is why<br />

finding a licensed real estate agent you feel<br />

comfortable with is so important.<br />

“Remember, you’re looking for the<br />

person who you’re going to trust to sell<br />

what’s likely to be your biggest asset. <strong>The</strong>ir<br />

success (or failure) will have a marked<br />

impact on your new life plan,” says the Real<br />

Estate Authority (REA).<br />

New Zealand has about 15,000 real estate<br />

agents who help people navigate big-deal<br />

transactions every day.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> trick is to find the one that will be<br />

best for your situation,” he says.<br />

form a picture of the agent’s experience,<br />

You need someone who understands knowledge and how they structure their<br />

what it takes to sell a property like yours business.<br />

and a proven track record to show for it. Remember that you can negotiate on the<br />

You also need to feel comfortable with marketing costs and commission – don’t be<br />

them personally – if you don’t find them afraid to ask the agents if they are interested<br />

pleasant to deal with then buyers may not in an incentive-based commission, where<br />

enjoy the experience either.<br />

they will earn more commission if they sell<br />

If you’re not sure how to get the ball your property above a certain price.<br />

rolling, ask the agent the following<br />

Once you’ve found the agent you think<br />

questions:<br />

you’d like to work with, check them out<br />

- What do you know about my<br />

on the Real Estate Authority’s (REA)<br />

neighbourhood? How are sales in this area online public register, which will tell you<br />

and who is buying?<br />

if the agent holds a current licence. This is<br />

- Do you work independently or with important because it’s illegal to carry out<br />

other agents?<br />

real estate agency work without a licence<br />

- What kind of advertising or marketing and if you deal with an unlicensed person<br />

do you use – and which ones will work for the REA will be unable to help you if things<br />

my property? What extra marketing costs go wrong.<br />

will I have to pay?<br />

When you’ve decided on an agent, the<br />

- What are your commission rates? Are terms and conditions of your contract will<br />

you open to negotiation?<br />

be set out in an agency agreement that<br />

- Do you have testimonials or references you both sign. This is a legal document,<br />

from people whose properties you have so make sure you get advice from a lawyer<br />
