Baffling assault
Police are baffled by a seemingly unprovoked assault in
Woolworths Supermarket
carpark on Friday night.
At about 7.25pm the male
victim had just placed his
groceries into his white Nissan
Navara when he was set upon,
possibly by more than one attacker. The victim was wearing
a black and white adidas rugby
jersey and blue jeans.
Police would like to hear from
anyone who witnessed the assault, or who has information
that would assist the investigation. Please contact constable
Jason Pope (872 0100).
Hot time in old hall
By Dean Taylor
“You’re the first venue to sell
out, so we’re going to give you
something special,” Dave Dobbyn told the faithful at Kihikihi
Town Hall on Sunday night. And
he did.
It wasn’t a perfect performance, evident by the amount of
self imposed ‘fine money’ on the
stage at the end of the show,
but everyone had fun and the
old hall was rocking like never
before.
Dobbyn, and his rhythm section of Ross Burge and Bones
Hillman, delivered a back catalogue of hits from Th’ Dudes, DD
Smash and a solo career into its
fourth decade, interspersed with
some of the new ‘Available Light’
material.
It wasn’t just the music we
enjoyed either, we got a bit of the
world according to Dobbyn.
The band tried their hand at
a bit of improv as well, but this
early on the tour that didn’t
really gel. When it could have,
Dobbyn admitted he forgot what
song he was trying to segue into.
But when Dave said sing, we
sang, and when he said stand,
we stood.
Then we all went into the cold
night, happy.
Purl‘a’ project
If you’ve been tucked up
inside during cold weather
spending some time knitting,
Operation Cover Up would love
to hear from you.
The project that provides
knitted blankets for orphans
in the Ukraine is keen to find
more knitters to help out.
Blankets are made from
‘peggy squares’ and are sent to
the estimated 104,000 children
in state orphanages.
If you would like to help, but
don’t knit, donations of wool
would also be welcomed (especially 8ply knitting wool).
Donations may be dropped
into the Courier office. For further information contact Lois
Johnson (ph 07 825 9855).
Waipa surge
Waipa property prices have
jumped nearly a quarter in the
last year.
The latest figures from Quotable Value New Zealand show
residential property prices in
the district for the year to May
2005 have increased 24% to an
average sale price of $237,091.
This compares to the national average of a 13.5% increase
over the last year.
Enrol on-line
Young people are most likely
to enrol to vote on-line, says
Hamilton East MP Dianne Yates.
Enrol to vote at the upcoming election by visiting
www.elections.org.nz or freetext your name and address to
3676 and you will be posted an
enrolment form.
Statistics show 100,000 - or
41.5% - of 250,000 unenrolled
voters across the country are
between 18 and 24.

OUTLOOK FOR THURSDAY: It was freezing outside, so Dave Dobbyn (left) and his band Ross Burge
(centre) and Bones Hillman opened with the weather report according to DD Smash.

LIFE ACCORDING TO DAVE DOBBYN:
“THIS is great, Kihikihi. I plan on
doing this for the rest of my life. This
or go back to pumping gas, and
there aren’t any real service stations
anymore.”
“We’re Kiwis. We look miserable on
the outside, but we’re partying on
the inside.”
“The Lions eh? They lose their
captain and it’s headless chooks
time.”
Your paper needs you Butt out, some say
Do you have strong opinions on topical issues and can you drive a computer?
If so, your community newspaper needs
you!
The Courier is looking to compile an email
database of people in the community who
are keen to share their ideas with readers
on issues of the day.
We are looking to build up as wide a cross
section of the community as possible - and
there are no barriers to who can participate
as long as you are a Courier reader (out of
town and overseas readers welcome).
Our aim is to have a large database, so
that not every person need respond to every
issue - just those who feel strongly about it.
If you want to be part of ‘Courier Readers Have Their Say’ email editor Grant
Johnston at [email protected]
This column will be separate from Letters
to the Editor and will include photos of people sharing their opinions (which only need
to be about 20 words long).
WHAT can you do for your paper?
Four readers have responded to our story about the
new Smokefree legislation, three in support of the bars.
Three respondents are non-smokers.
Janine had worked in the bar industry for seven years
and believes her health was put at risk by smokers, so
she applauds the new legislation and those that obey the
rules. She understands business may be suffering, but
believes the health of the nation is more important.
Edith doesn’t think it makes sense to make it so tough
on businesses. She believes it will be more than just the
bars that suffer, as more people choose to stay home and
enjoy a smoke and a drink, and she misses going for a
game of pool and a drink with her mates.
Andrew says the Government has tackled the problem
the wrong way, using legislation rather than education
to cover up a poor job by the health industry. He says the
problem has not been solved, it has just shifted location.
Maureen, a smoker, is more to the point.
“These rules are against my human rights. My friends
and I used to go and have a drink together twice a week,
now that we can’t have a smoke we hardly ever go. There
are to many do gooders trying to make everyone live the
way they want. Why don’t all the non smokers join the
Destiny Church and leave all the smokers in the pub.”

Another wall diagram displayed a designation process;
1 - Notice submitted;
2 - Public Notification;
3 - Submissions;
4 - Hearing;
5 - Decision.
The process at that point
was supposedly submissions,
yet it seemed a decision had
already been made. People
were referred to green forms
to record comments and concerns regarding the works.
Many considered them to
actually be the submissions
referred to but they were not.
Tanya Running from Opus
stated that the realignment
was “not about more parking for the Medical Centre.”
Councillor Empson was also
clear on this point. However
Phil Barker said that it “was
about more parking for the
Medical Centre” weighted
amongst
other
considerations.
The Medical Centre’s own
parking space at the corner
of Vaile and Teasdale Streets
could be nearly twice as big if
the grass slope was terraced
and filled but it is apparently
cited for a mysterious future
development.
Opus did not have diagrams of the proposed works
to hand out.
A diagram of one of three
less intrusive options turned
down by council found its way
onto the wall. It was clearly
preferred by those in attendance over the version being
officially displayed as a crowd
gathered around it.
Whether Opus did a good
job would depend on their
objective.
Whoever gave them their
brief did not include prior
stated public concerns.
A better impression would
have been made by Phil
Barker being there alone.
Who needs a ring road if it
inconveniences locals?
The planned one way street
will have traffic leaving the
main street for Teasdale
Street forced to drive by
the Medical Centre causing
congestion where there was
none.
The solution is to use the
funds for the realignment
to build a modern medical
venue near the Events Centre or down Bond Road and
lease it to businesses from
Vaile Street.
This would be actual
growth without a sacrifice.
Ring road-race track enthusiasts could then plow through
the spare section, no parking
required.
The small consulting rooms
of the Te Awamutu Clinic
would not be missed, but the
open space of Anzac Green
would be.
MARC DAWSON
Road reserve not recreational use
-NEW AEROBIC SCHEDULE-
Group Exercise Programme
MON
Recently I’ve seen cars sensibly angle parked with their
front wheels on the grass opposite Te Awamutu Medical
Centre.
As with the Community
Board’s version for realignment, this is far less intrusive
than what Council has opted
for. Council has amplified the
Community Board’s scheme
into an abomination.
Recent comment over what
Anzac Green was prior used
for is a red herring. It was a
recreational space and still
is. The point is that the realignment requires its reserve
status to be revoked.
Apparently Opus have an
expertise in reassigning land
designation for such schemes.
At the Opus PR meeting
a large wall diagram stated
that Vaile Street ‘will’ be
realigned and that Teasdale
Street ‘will’ be turned into a
one way street.
In response to Alistair Kerr: no, you
wouldn’t have heard of any objection to
the pools occupying one end of Anzac
Green.
Simple reason – the pools were a
recreational facility for the whole community to enjoy. They were a valid use of
this space. A road reserve will not be of
any recreational use, nor an asset to the
community.
Anzac Green is a designated reserve,
it is a listed Historic Place. This designation means the council must apply to the
Commissioner for the Environment for
permission to use the land for anything
other than a reserve (i.e. recreational
community space). I doubt that by the
furtherest stretch of the imagination,
the proposed car parking and widened
road could be described as this.
In addition, I disagree with all those
stating the proposals will improve safety
and traffic flow.
Really? Have a closer look. No facilities for pedestrians to cross Vaile Street
at any point, increased traffic flow with
many more people seeking carparking in
this area, traffic to the Primary School
routed along Vaile Street, all intersections uncontrolled…
As a relatively recent resident of Te
Awamutu, I think the proposed ring
road is a short-sighted and ill-thought
out plan. It will not be able to fully serve
it’s intention (of routing traffic away
form the main street), it will discourage
pedestrian access into the town centre,
and safety will continue to be an issue.
Oh, and thanks for the maths Alistair,
so the realignment will only take 840
square metres? I don’t know where you
live but for my kids, that’s a pretty sizeable area to run around on (and I wait to
be pleasantly surprised if that is all the
Council ends up using…)
Come on Te Awamutu, let’s keep this
green space which gives our town some
character and dignity. Sure, it could do
with a bit of planting and more facilities
on it, but once it’s lost to car parking it’ll
be gone forever. And guess what?
There’ll never be enough carparking
while people continue to demand the
right to park right outside their destination and refuse to consider walking a few
metres

Dehumidifiers from $399.95
Controlling Moisture
Moisture buildup is a real problem in
New Zealand’s heavily insulated modern homes.
A family can generate up to 15 litres of
moisture per day through breathing,
cooking, bathing, heating and clothes drying.
In the summer months, this moisture
builds up in wall linings, framing, roofs and furnishings. In fact, moisture will build up anywhere
it can be absorbed. Our outdoor lifestyle compounds the problem. In summer we tend to
open doors and windows, which leads to more humidity being absorbed into our homes.
Asthma and Allergy
New Zealand statistics for Asthma and some allergies are amongst the highest in the world
with one in six New Zealanders have Asthma. 70-80% of Asthma in New Zealand is associated
with allergies. Many of these problems can be linked to the moisture content of our homes.
Air Purification
A good dehumidifier will help remove dust, pollens and smoke from the air by utilising an Air
Purification system. Removal of these from our surroundings can be of benefit to
asthma/allergy sufferers and those with respiratory problems

Cocksy didn’t let cat out of bag...
By Cathy Asplin
Cocksy didn’t let the cat out of the bag
at Fieldays (or the kids out of the dog
house for that matter).
He was asked so often how he got on
in Superstars of Treasure Island that
he even wore a t-shirt printed with the
slogan ‘Dont ask me who won Treasure
Island!’
One of his biggest fans even put
himself in the doghouse - literally - to
get some inside knowledge, but Cocksy
wasn’t spilling the beans.
Korakonui’s Riley Chick (8) was one
of the Fieldays visitors entertained
by Cocksy as the Carters frontman
‘whipped up’ a dog house inside the
combined veterinary stand.
Riley has watched the whole Superstars of Treasure Island series, but
Cocksy wasn’t letting anything slip.
He had to wait until Sunday night to
find out the answer, just like everyone
else.
The 90-minute final episode saw three
remaining contestants - Cocksy, former
All Black Josh Kronfield and former
Kiwi league player Brent Todd, face a
series of challenges over two days.
But sadly at the end of the first day
Cocksy was eliminated after a rare
miscalculation on his part, leaving just
Kronfield and Todd in the hunt for the
princess’ missing remains and the buried treasure.
‘Toddy’ was Riley’s first choice to win
the event, but it was Kronfield who was
first to uncover the $50,000 ‘treasure’.
Superstars of Treasure Island featured contestants from Ireland and Australia, as well as the most feared, hated
and loved former contestants from New
Zealand.
Other New Zealanders to take part
included Louise Wallace, Michael Laws,
Erika Takacs and Pieta Keating, but
they were eliminated along the way
with all of the Aussie and Irish competitors.
Superstars of Treasure Island was
filmed in Tonga and hosted by former
teenage pop sensation Jon Stevens.
The Wellington singer shot to fame in
1979 with his hits, Jezebel and Montego
Bay, then moved to Australia where he
found success with the band Noiseworks
and later as the singer in INXS.
He has since returned to a solo career.
COCKSY (John Cocks) and Chickie (Riley Chick) test out the dog house constructed by the TV
personality at the veterinary stand during Fieldays. Cocksy was convinced to come to Fieldays
179053AD
by his mate Foxie (David Fox) of The Veterinary Centre in Te Awamutu.
Local schools battle swift spread of influenza
SPECIAL
TERM
DEPOSIT
7
Deputy Principal Graham Milne says 104
students have been away from school for at
least two-three days.
“This is much higher than normal for this
time of the year.
“Some haven’t been away for long enough,
however, and on their first day back we’ve
had to send them home again.”
At Pekerau Primary (304 students) there
has been around 35 students absent each
day, with 54 the highest number away on
just one day. Principal John Cubitt is quite
sure the majority have been affected by the
influenza that is sweeping the region.
“I’d estimate at least 90% of those are away
with the flu and we have been reminding
parents to keep their children away until
they are completely well.”
KILLER ‘FLU’ STRAIN
The influenza strain spreading like wildfire
through schools is ‘Hong Kong B’ and was not
expected to be so dominant this year.
The virus has not been common in New
Zealand since 1987, so children born after
that date have not been exposed to develop
any immunity to it.
This years ‘flu vaccine had the Shanghai B
strain included, which has also been circulating, but has not been a cause of any deaths as
the Hong Kong B strain has been.
Three people have died from influenza
complications (including a student at Hamilton Boys’ High) and large numbers have been
hit hard by it, clogging medical centres and
emergency departments.
Mahoe Street Medical Centre Doctor Liza
Lack says she can understand why parents
are so concerned.
”We are seeing lots of children, not necessarily all of them have the ‘full blown’ flu, but
there are many anxious parents out there.
“Influenza symptoms include high temper-
.00 %
atures, joint pain and a feeling of exhaustion
which send people to bed.
“There is also a lot of vomiting and diarrhoea around at the moment, but that could
possibly be a separate virus.
“It’s a matter of careful observation by
parents, plenty of fluids for the sick child, bed
rest and paracetamol. If these basic measures aren’t working after 24 hours then we
need to see them.”
Dr Lack emphasises the need for parents to
keep their children at home if they are sick
“It is very infectious, so the best way to halt
the spread of the flu is by staying away.”
While it is hard to estimate the length
of time the influenza will continue to be a
problem, health authorities expect it to be
circulating for at least another two or three
weeks. The influenza cycle is expected to
last at least six weeks and the area has had
three-four weeks of it so far.

By Cathy Asplin
The first Evelyn Adams knew of the influenza epidemic sweeping the country was a
phone call from school to say her nine-yearold daughter Nicole was unwell.
“She’d had a few colds before, but never anything like this. She initially had a high fever
and vomiting before the cold-like symptoms
appeared - it threw me a bit, I wasn’t quite
sure what we were facing to start with.”
A runny nose, sore throat and cough followed the high fever and vomiting, with
Nicole in bed for the best part of a week.
“Luckily we’re on a farm at Te Kawa, so we
can always have someone at home with her.
Parents working away from home must find
it much harder to be off work for at least a
week to care for their sick children.”
Nicole attends Te Awamutu Primary (460
students) where numbers away from school
have been steadily rising.

Districts, second behind Grayling
at the World Cup qualifier and
fifth at New Zealand one-day
championships at Wairarapa.
In three-day events, the young
Kaipaki lass placed second at
Puhinui and 10th at Taupo. She
also won the New Zealand Young
Rider at the Puhinui International three-dayer.
Hawthorn is building on the
extraordinary
promise
she
showed winning the New Zealand Young Rider Championship
at Wellington in 2003.

POWER PACKED: Chelsey Hawthorn and Look At That competing
in the crosscountry at the World Cup qualifier at Kihikihi. 179055AD
C H O I C E
By Colin Thorsen
Chelsey Hawthorn’s victory in
the New Zealand Advanced Leaderboard Championship is fitting
reward, according to equestrian
legend Mark Todd.
Todd says it was a great result
for the young rider from Kaipaki.
“I’ve taken her for several
dressage lessons. I know how
hard she has worked to make it
happen.”
Todd says it’s great to see these
young ones getting the results
they deserve.
“Chelsey has a very good relationship with her little horse.
“What Look At That lacks in
size, he certainly makes up for
with his big heart.”
Todd says the horse was not
that easy to handle in flat work
(dressage).
“She’s done really well with the
first horse she’s trained to that
level.”
The leaderboard championship
is decided on points accumulated
from, predominantly, one-day
events over the autumn and
spring season. There were two
three-day events at Taupo and
Puhinui.
Hawthorn prevailed with 86
points, heading off the second
placed Matthew Grayling by 10
points.
The 20-year-old received $5000
in cash for the winning combination (horse and rider), along with
a Pessoa Saddle (worth about
$3500) for most points by a rider
on advanced horses - again heading off Grayling, the Olympian
and New Zealand World Cup
qualifier winner at Kihikihi for
the past two years.
Hawthorn’s feat was all the
more commendable considering
she has just the one advanced

Seminar to discuss
ginseng investment
Te Awamutu investors will be able to hear
about an opportunity to invest in ginseng being
grown in New Zealand for the multi-billion dollar
global market.
A seminar to be held at the Burchell Pavillion
at 10am this Thursday, will outline an opportunity for investors who wish to become involved
in a new horticultural industry which meets a
centuries-old market.
Ginseng is one of the highest value crops per
hectare, thanks to growing world-wide demand
as a basis for herbal health supplements.
At about US$350/kg for dried root, New Zealand exports of the medicinal herb are expected
to rival the wine industry in value within a few
years.
The offer relates to one cycle of American ginseng, due to be harvested before 30 September
2010. Ginseng takes seven years to grow to optimum size. The investment crop will be into its
third year later this year.
The issue aims to raise $12.2 million in subscriptions (minimum parcel $9500) for a special
partnership in Clean Green Ginseng Ltd.

Superhero returns
The Man of Steel is making
a welcome return a decade
after his last appearance in Te
Awamutu.
The popular musical spoof is
being staged by Te Awamutu Intermediate School next Tuesday
until Thursday, 10 years and a
few days after the last time they
produced it.
Te Awamutu College also performed the show in the 1980’s.
The action packed story
stars the Man of Steel himself
(Chas Naera) and intrepid Te
Awamutu Courier reporter
Linda Street (Rochelle Taylor)
as they battle the evil Countess
Olga and her motley henchmen.
Over 100 students, or more
than a quarter of the school,
is involved in acting, dancing,
singing, playing an instrument
or working on publicity or backstage for this major show.
It is being directed for the
second time by deputy principal
Jill Shaw, who is backed by an
experienced and enthusiastic
team of staff helpers.
As well as the three public
performances, the cast and
crew are providing two shows
for other schools and rest home
residents.
Tickets
are
expected to be
at a premium.
They are available from the
school office.

Maybe you feel just like I did back then? I didn’t want to show my
face in the gym until I had lost some weight!!! It sounds crazy now,
but I thought you had to be in shape to join the gym. I was so self
conscious. I also had plenty of excuses; I can’t afford it, haven’t got
time, it would be too hard etc.
You will be surprised how quickly you can shape up when you go
the right way about it.
Did you know?
It only takes 20 minutes training to get great results.
You should finish your workout feeling invigorated not exhausted.

Waipa District Council has moved quickly
to get work going on
the
new
sewerage
scheme for Kihikihi.
Two
weeks
ago,
Council announced the
$12.6 million sewerage scheme was going
ahead.
The project will see
700 septic tanks connected to pipes which
will pump sewerage
from Kihikihi to the
new
Te
Awamutu
wastewater treatment
plant.
The project has been
welcomed by Kihikihi
residents who for years
have lived with poorly
performing
septic
tanks. Effluent from
some tanks has seeped
into ground and surface
water, raising health
issues and prompting
concern from Council
and public health officials.
This week, Council
appointed Vickie Byford as project administrator,
responsible
for direct liaison with
Kihikihi residents on
behalf of the Council.
She will work closely
with Council engineer Mark Woodward
who will be based at
Kihikihi full-time once
physical work on the
project begins.
Within
the
next
week, she will begin
visiting Kihikihi residents to smooth the
way for physical work
to begin. Ms Byford,
who has previously
worked in Waipa’s animal control unit, will
VICKIE BYFORD
be easily identified by
a uniform during her
visits.
Chief executive John
Inglis said Council
staff were meeting
with the contractors for
the project this week to
start finalising a work
plan.
“As soon as we have
more detail about what
work is planned, we’ll
be sharing it with residents,” he said.
“This is a big project
- one of the largest
undertaken by Council
in recent years. The
nature of the work
required means there
will inevitably be some
disruption. Vickie’s role
will be to liaise closely
with the community
so that disruption is
minimised and people
are kept as informed as
possible.”

Will believe it’s true
when he sees it
By Colin Thorsen
Retired
plumber
Harold McLiesh will
believe Kihikihi is getting sewerage when he
sees it.
And he has good
reason to be sceptical
about it.
He was told 50 years
ago that Kihikihi was
to get sewerage
“I had a quiet chuckle
to myself after reading
last Thursday’s Courier
feature on the reaction
to Kihikihi’s sewerage
go ahead,” says McLiesh.
He recalls being an
apprentice for Leckie
and Singleton, assisting with the plumbing and drainage on
Mounseys Buildings in
Kihikihi when erected
HAROLD MCLIESH
in the 1950s.
The septic tank and
soak drainage holes
had to be dug by hand,
with the soak holes one
metre in diameter and
3-4 metres deep.
Once the holes were
too deep for the bigger men, McLiesh had
to get in there (being
the small apprentice)
with a garden fork and
small D-handled shovel
to finish the job off.
The soil was taken
out in a bucket on a
rope.
What amuses McLiesh was the council
plumbing and drainage
inspector, Fred Jenner
saying: “That will be
enough soakage - sewerage will be here in
five years.”
“And they’re still
waiting,”
quipped
McLiesh, who worked
for
Singleton
and
Hansen Plumbing (as
it is known nowadays)
for 33 years.

Women commit similar crimes to men, but
for different reasons,
says Sue Reynolds,
acting manager for
the Women’s Unit at
Waikeria Prison.
Mrs Reynolds addressed Te Awamutu
Business and Professional Women at their
monthly meeting.
She said the introduction two years ago
of a Women’s Unit gave
Waikeria Prison a different perspective.
Women inmates are
often
unemployed,
many
have
been
abused at as children
and their standard of
education is low.
Some
left
their
homes at an early age
and don’t want their
own daughters to follow the same path.
The Waikeria Women’s Unit is not set up
for pregnant women as
it is too far from medi172TC053/05

self esteem to prevent
re-offending”.
Consequently, along
with basic literary
and numeracy courses,
life skills, budgeting,
self sufficiency in the
kitchen and laundry
skills are taught.
Mrs Reynolds said
she had met many
talented and interesting women for whom
prison was not the
answer - rather it is a
community problem.
As far as staff matters were concerned
she said that recruiting
and retaining adequate
staff numbers was a
problem.
Today’s prison officers were expected to be
a part of the rehabilitation process not just a
‘warder’.
Mrs Reynolds said
that the Parole Board
met once a fortnight
and with family help,
decided whether the
inmate was ready to be
rehabilitated back into
the community.
If so, at the time of
release, a bank account
is set up, money for
accommodation
and
vouchers are given.
It is important that
support is there to help
inmates returning to
society to help themselves.
Commanding speaker
Te Awamutu Continuing Education Group enjoyed a thought provoking address by Professor
Bill Hodge, a Constitutional Lawyer from Auckland University.
He spoke on the implications of a change from
our present political system to that of a Republican one, which may come about within the next
decade. An attendance of over 80 members enjoyed a interesting an informative, instructional
and amusing speech followed by questions from
members.
On July 6 Dr William Jennings from Waikato
University will address the group on ‘The many
regions of France’.

join the other thousands of graduates
cal assistance, nor are
there any facilities for
rooming in with children.
However,
contact
with families is considered very important.
“Women need to reestablish themselves
with their families and
continue bonding with
their children, especially the pre-schoolers. “
Current muster in
our prisons across New
Zealand is on average
2000 and, of these, 5%
are women.
Mrs Reynolds said
that eventually there
will be a need for three
Womens prisons; Auckland, being built now,
will join Christchurch
and the better known
Arohata
Womens
Prison.
Studies show that
there are more women
in prisons today than
ever before.
Mrs Reynolds helped
set up the Womens
Unit at Waikeria which
has 80 beds. Initially
the plan was for fewer
beds but the demand
grew and the beds are
always full.
“Rehabilitation is the
primary objective and
to do that women need
to face their offending,
learn to up-skill themselves and restore their

Westies won’t let seabed
mining in without fight
Proposed seabed mining off the west coast will
strike plenty of community opposition, judging
by the Kawhia public meeting hosted recently to
debate the issue.
Kawhia hosted members of the newly formed
environmental lobby group Kiwis Against Seabed Mining (KASM) to hear about the proposed
iron ore mine off the coast of Waitara and its possible impact on the Kawhia community.
More than 50 Kawhia residents were in attendance, along with a delegation from Taharoa and
two visitors who had driven up from Mokau to
attend the meeting.
The meeting began with the unveiling of
KASM’s brand new DVD presentation.
Editor of the Raglan Chronicle, Stephen Frew
then brought the community up to date with the
history of the current application to mine iron
ore off the coast of Waitara, as well as a previous
company that has recently had an application to
explore the West Coast of the North Island for
iron ore declined.
Sheryl Hart, secretary of the Raglan Sport
Fishing Club, also spoke about the impacts seabed mining could have on the coastal communi-
ties and in particular the recreational fishery.
Following the ‘formal’ part of the meeting, the
community asked questions and discussed the issue both as a whole and in individual groups.
Those in attendance were disbelieving that
a large scale seabed mine could be considered
when they, almost without exception, considered
that large scale environmental damage would
ensue.
The meeting was highly sceptical about the
comments made by Iron Ore New Zealand Ltd
that there is a deadzone between 20 and 60 metres depth of water, with a few stating that some
of the West Coast’s best fishing happens in these
depths.
Comments included the statement from a
Kawhia Harbour Protection Society spokesperson, who said that the Kawhia Harbour bar is
more than two kilometres from the mean high
tide mark so the proposed mine in Kawhia is not
really offshore.
More than half of those who attended the meeting joined KASM (paying $10 to sign up on the
spot) with at least one man making a reasonable
donation to KASM rather than just pay the $10.
Call to cut workplace carnage
- 2216 injuries in 10 months
Too many Waikato people are
getting sick or injured on the job
and it’s time we did more about
it, says Hamilton East MP Dianne Yates.
In Waikato, 2216 injuries occurred in the 10 months to May
this year. In the year to June
2004, there were seven workrelated deaths in the wider
Waikato region.
“Every day about 700 Kiwis
across the country suffer an
illness or injury that requires
medical attention, and every
year, about 1000 New Zealanders die prematurely from workrelated diseases,” Dianne Yates
says.
Reducing the toll of work-
related deaths, injury and
sickness is the aim of a new
Government plan that sets
long-term co-operative goals
for employers, workers, medical specialists, and government
agencies.
The
Government’s
new
Workplace Health and Safety
Strategy provides a 10-year
plan for local and central government, unions, employers,
industry, and non-government
organisations, to work towards
health and safety goals.
Work-related injuries account
for about 100 sudden deaths a
year, and about 200,000 ACC
claims.
About six per cent of people
with work related injuries suffer permanent impairment.
The estimated cost of death,
injury and illness caused by
occupational disease and injury
is between $4.3 billion and $8.7
billion a year,” the Hamilton
East MP says.
“The economic cost is incidental when we consider the
personal cost to families, workmates and communities who all
suffer when someone becomes
seriously ill or dies because of a
work related illness or injury.
“A big challenge will be changing people’s attitudes within
workplace cultures, because
they influence the way people
behave at work.”

In 1978 Winston and I disagreed on
the political tactics and policies of Rob
Muldoon. I was dubbed ‘a colonel’ in
1981 for my membership of a group of
MPs who tried to oust Muldoon. Peters,
in the other camp and clearly one of
‘Rob’s Mob’, learnt his political skills at
the knee of this divisive Prime Minister.
In listening to him speak at Te
Awamutu Rotary, his ‘Muldoon philosophy’ reared its head again. One of his
comments sticks in my mind; “if you
want a Government that doesn’t interfere, don’t vote for me!”
It was made clear to us that another
chance for Winston at the power levers of
government would see us return to picking winners through the tax system; re
introducing tax incentives to exporters;
getting rid of the Reserve Bank Act that
controls inflation, and probably regulating interest rates.
So these three successful Maori men
will probably continue to play a part in
our businesses, entertainment and politics for a while yet.

playoff to decide the winner of the subsidiary
darts round.
A re-match between the two top teams became necessary after they finished the roundrobin with the identical record of 12 wins from
13 matches.
Te Awamutu Sports Waikeria sneaked home 98 against Nomads Too in their final match, while
Ohaupo (last year’s champion team in Hamilton)
had no such problems dispatching Joy’s Hookers
16-1.
There will be considerable interest in the playoff - venue and date yet to be confirmed.
There was little in it when the two ‘finalists’
met in round eight, TA Sports Waikeria winning
9-8. Their only loss was to Mitre 10 Arrows, 9-8,
in the penultimate round.
Arrows rallied magnificently to finish third outright after dropping three consecutive matches
early in the competition.
They beat Pirongia Hotel 10-7 in a final round
match which effectively decided third and fourth
placings.
In other matches, Rebels beat Raiders 16-1,
FBI accounted for Hobbits 13-4 and Stranglers
dealt to Joy’s Riff Raff 14-3.
Greg Rewiti chalked up his first perfect score
for FBI, while Terry Hughes threw 180 for RSA.

against Nomads the previous week.

Seven-year-old Kozmo Pool
will never forget his debut at the
national Taekwon-Do championships in Levin.
The Waikeria Hawk yellow
belt collected two bronze medals
in patterns and sparring.
It was a mighty achievement.
He only took up the martial art
in August last year.
Kozmo’s mother Wendy says
he was blown away by his success.
“It was his first ever competition.”
The youngster had shown
promise at two gradings - obtaining A passes at both of them.
The ‘baby’ of the Waikeria
Hawks/Te Awamutu contingent
to the nationals experienced another first enroute to Levin.
It started snowing just before
they hit Waiouru.
All of the students and supporters got out of the bus to have
a snow fight.
Kozmo had never touched
snow before.
“It was cool. I got hit in the face
with a snow ball.”
The weeks of training the students had put in held them in
good stead at the nationals.
They collectively won one gold
medal, three silver and eight
bronze.
Te Awamutu junior boys’ dan
Greg Dyson claimed the gold in
heavyweight sparring.
Silver medals were claimed
by Sam Campbell (TA) junior
boys’ dan hyperweight sparring,
Steven Pussell (Hawks) men’s
1-4 Gup heavyweight sparring,
and Tamehana Riddell (Hawks)
junior boys’ 5-8 Gup micoweight

Bronze medallists were Clint

are grateful to their sponsors.

An intercept try to former All Black Keith Lowen proved a killer blow to Ecolab Te Awamutu
Sports in their 26-23 loss to Hautapu on Saturday.
The intercept could not have come at a worse
time for Te Awamutu Sports in the Waikato premier rugby game at Cambridge on Saturday.
They had just scored to hit the lead, 16-14, after
Hautapu had led 14-9 at halftime.
Sports were hot on attack when the pass was
intercepted.
Left wing Ryan Meacheam chased Lowen down,
catching him just short of the line but unable to
prevent the try.
Hautapu were in again out wide a few minutes
later, extending their lead to 26-16.
With 15 minutes remaining, Sports went on
the attack.
They pinned Hautapu down in their half with
kicks into the corners from halfback Luke Parsons and first five Tangohau.
After a series of driving mauls, the ball went
wide to fullback Hamish Stewart, who broke a
tackle in midfield to score.
Tangohau converted.
Trailing by three points with as many minutes
to go, Sports threw everything at the home team
but their defence held.
Peter Bain reports that both sides put in some
big efforts on defence in the wet ‘very heavy underfoot’ conditions.
The scrum had the better of their opponents,
often having the Hautapu pack going backwards.
Sports started strongly, applying pressure with
a series of driving mauls up the middle of the
park.
Hautapu infringed and Waylon Tangohau converted the first of his three penalties.
Hautapu replied in kind, driving Sports back
into their half and breaking the defence to score
for a 7-3 lead.
A Tangohau penalty reduced the deficit to 7-6.
Sports gifted Hautapu their next points when a
clearing kick near the corner was charged down
and the try scored.
The conversion was successful and Hautapu
were out to a 14-6 lead.
Tangohau had the last say of the first half,
landing a penalty.
Sports made a hash of things knocking on from
the kickoff to the second half.
They dug deep with some big defence from both
backs and forwards to keep Hautapu out and
forced a turnover.
The visitors took play into opposition territory

Hautapu ran out of numbers, allowing Stewart
to cross out wide and run around behind the
posts to score the first of his two tries.
The extras were added by Tangohau for Sports
to take a 16-14 lead - the rest is history.
Hautapu are now the holders of the Battle of
Waipa trophy.
Ecolab Te Awamutu Sports next game is
against Morrinsville Sports at Albert Park,
2.30pm this Saturday.
Te Awamutu Sports Stags turned a 5-0 halftime deficit into a 10-5 win over Te Rapa to clinch
second place in the first round competition.
Sustained pressure and good ball retention
through several phases was eventually rewarded
with a try under the posts to the Stags which was
converted. A penalty to the Stags in front of the
posts near fulltime completed the scoring.
Right wing Matt Edwards was player of day.

Everyone a winner in 21st fun run
SUE HARRIS (right) and Helen Hancock
with their 21st fun run medals. 1790521AD
SPORT
Completing the 21st
8km fun walk was a
personal triumph for Te
Awamutu’s Sue Harris
after being diagnosed
with breast cancer last
year.
“It’s all about having
a positive attitude,” says
Harris.
“I said right from the
start that it wasn’t going to beat me.”
She saw the fun run
was coming up months
ago and used it as a
focus.
After finishing her
chemotherapy and radiation treatment early
April, she set about getting fit for the 8km fun
walk.
She returned to the
gym and is back at work
at Fonterra.
Harris says it’s a case
of ‘so far so good’ as far
as the cancer goes. She
has regularly check ups.

SHAYLAH WINEERA
Hamilton cerebral palsy
sufferer Barry Hutchinson
was a notable entrant
in the 21st Te Awamutu
Marathon Clinic fun run
and walk.
Competing on his specially designed hand-driven ‘racing bike’ - Hutchinson covered the half
marathon in 1.33.00.
The 43-year-old works
at Life Unlimited Disabled Resource Centre in
Hamilton.
He is training for his
third start in the New
York Marathon on November 6.
Hutchinson is hoping to
break the three hour barrier this year after taking
six hours in 2001 and just
over three hours last year.
Kihikihi
10-year-old
Shaylah Wineera’s time
for the 8km fun run was
51.18.
“I got the stitch three
times but only stopped
running once,” she says.

Get neat Madagascar gear
Alex the Lion (Stiller) is the king of the urban
jungle, the main attraction at New York’s Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends Marty the
Zebra (Rock), Melman the Giraffe (Schwimmer)
Madagascar
Ben Stiller (‘Meet the Parents’), Chris Rock (‘Chris Rock
Never Scared’), David Schwimmer
(TV’s ‘Friends’) and Jada Pinkett Smith
(‘Collateral’) star as the voices of four zoo
animals who hang up when they hear the call
of the wild.
and Gloria the Hippo (Pinkett Smith) have lived
their lives in blissful captivity, with regular
meals and an admiring public to adore them.
Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty
allows his curiosity to get the better of him
and, with the help of some prodigious
penguins, makes his escape to explore
the world he’s been missing. Alex,
Melman and Gloria go after him,
but before they can go wild
in the streets, they are
captured, crated and
put on a ship to Africa ...
to be ultimately set free.
When those plotting penguins sabotage the ship, Alex,
Marty, Melman and Gloria find
themselves washed ashore on the
exotic island of Madagascar. Now,
those native New Yorkers have to figure
out how to survive the wild and discover
the true meaning of the phrase ‘It’s a jungle
out there.’

Te Awamutu Courier
and Tracs give readers the chance to win
a double pass to the
Rainbow Warrior Tribute concert, starring
the John Butler Trio,
in Auckland’s St James
on Sunday, July 10.
Tickets are available
from TicketDirect (ww
w.ticketdirect.co.nz).
On
the
historic
20th anniversary of
the bombing of the
Rainbow Warrior in
Auckland’s Waitamata
harbour, an array of
New Zealand’s top
musicians, with special
guest John Butler (pictured) from Australia,
are playing a multi media tribute concert.
Also on the bill are
Steriogram, D4, Che
Fu, Don McGlashan,
OpShop and Rhombus.
The gig will both
commemorate
the
tragic events of July 10,
1985, but also celebrate
New Zealand’s nuclear
free status and support
the vision of a peaceful
and environmentally
sound planet. It will
include video projections of historic footage
of the Rainbow Warrior
on the giant screen at
the St James.
The show mirrors a
Rainbow Warrior benefit concert performed in
1986 with Neil Young,
Herbs, Split Enz and
Dave Dobbyn.
“The Rainbow Warrior has always had a
close association with
music,” says campaign
manager Cindy Baxter.
“And this is a continuation of that good
tradition with a whole
new generation of artists 20 years after the
bombing.”
All artists have given
their time freely for the
event, and proceeds
will go to Greenpeace.

the anniversary, the
Rainbow Warrior II
will be in Matauri Bay
for a commemoration
service above the wreck
of the original boat.
She has spent the
last two weeks out on
the high seas highlighting deep sea destruction.
To be in to win simply
put your name, address
and daytime contact
number on the back
of a standard sized
envelope, address it to
‘The Rainbow Warrior
Competition’ and make
sure it reaches our office by 5pm Friday.
If you sing in the
shower, in the car or
while doing the vacuuming - and you sound
good - the Waikato Rivertones want to hear
you.
The Waikato’s champion four part harmony
chorus is holding a free
Open Night on Monday,
July 11 to attract quality new voices of all
ages from teenagers
to ‘older’ women. The
Rivertones won a New
Zealand gold medal in
2001 and represented
the country in world
championships
in
Nashville, Tennessee
in 2002.
Members come from
all over the central
North Island to practice each Monday night,
and singers come from
as far as Tauranga
and the King Country.
The Open Night will
introduce women to
four part harmony
singing, and is followed
by a series of free vocal
lessons and trial membership for women who
like what they hear
and want to sing with
the best.
The Open Night
- to be held at Marian School hall, Clyde
Street in Hamilton
from 7pm - will include all the elements
of a usual Rivertones
rehearsal night - physical warm-ups to music,
vocal exercises and
plenty of singing from
the chorus as well as
learning some easy
four part music for the
audience.

“Stephen Spielberg updates HG Wells’ adventure to the modern world
nicely and ratchets up the action and suspense to an edge-of-yourseat intensity.The film’s state-of-the-art special effects are unnerving.
The movie offers thrills and chills and is a hit for all audiences.”
