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.

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.” S u p e r Liquor Offer concludes close of trade 4/07/05 while stocks last 179TC013-05 Speight’s 2 5 ’s $ 30 00 John’s PICK OF THE WEEK 60 Earrings OPEN 7 DAYS Pendants John’s Super Deal is Cash and Carry Only – Payment of John’s Super Deal must be by cash, Eftpos or cheque, otherwise charge price applies.

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 RACHEL BLAKE 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 ✔ Quiet and light ✔ High moisture removal ✔ Mildew Guard* ✔ Guards your home against costly damage due to moisture, mildew and rot * Available on selected models STRAWBRIDGES CONDITIONS APPLY 179TC004-05 319 Alexandra St, TE AWAMUTU • 871 7090 • 0800 4738 728 - 10 Maniapoto St, OTOROHANGA • (07) 873 8142 PAGE 2 Te Awamutu Courier, Tuesday, June 28, 2005 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. 172TC003/05 p.a. 3-6 months Minimum deposit $100 Your local agency: Looking for cheaper nappies?

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. 179TC023/05 Will publish Thursday, July 7 179TC050-05 If you would like to promote your products or services in this feature call Heather or Dori on 871 5151 Te Awamutu Courier, Tuesday, June 28, 2005 PAGE 3 !

P E O P L E • Improved economy option 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.

Access action Taranaki-King Country MP Shane Ardern has lodged an amendment to the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992.

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. Right: MAN OF STEEL (Chas Naera) and his right-handwoman Linda Street (Rochelle Taylor) are recreating the roles first played by Adam Russell and Kirsten Robertson 10 years ago (inset). 179057AD I was overweight and self conscious about it.

Te Awamutu Courier, Tuesday, June 28, 2005 PAGE 7 179TC025/05 PAGE 8 Te Awamutu Courier, Tuesday, June 28, 2005 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.” L LA AS ST TD DA AY YS S Sewerage scheme underway soon FREE Curtain Making Ends Saturday, 2 July Call in & view our extensive range of fabrics 13 GEORGE ST, (WAREHOUSE COMPLEX), PH 871-8540 OPEN: MON - FRI, 7.30am - 5.00pm and SAT 9.00am - 1.00pm 179TC041/05 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. 179TC037/05 Investment Potential $169,000 179TC039/05 Older style character home.

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 Carve yourself a future!

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’. 151TC009/05 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 PAGE 10 Te Awamutu Courier, Tuesday, June 28, 2005 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.” f o H T M R A W RELAX in the R E T N I W s i h t E YOUR HOM IN-BU MODEILT AVAIL LS ABLE · 23kw heat output · 5kw water heating · Furnace bricklined for durability and extended heat output from $2255* Lady Kitchener * Price is plus flue kit and installation costs SINGLETON PLUMBING and HANSEN LTD 118TC031-05 129 MARKET ST, TE AWAMUTU, PH (07) 871 7099, FAX (07) 871 8435 NEW STOCK TRADE-IN CLEARANCE 1993 Toyota Landcruiser VX Ltd 1994 Toyota Lucida Estima X 4.2 diesel turbo, 87,000 kms, CD player, s/roof, immaculate condition 2.4 petrol, 5 speed, manual, 8 seater, 4WD, only 58,000 kms, immaculate condition 1996 Nissan Terrano R3M-R 2.7 diesel turbo, auto, air cond, full electrics, driver’s air bag $13,995 TOYOTA 3.0 turbo diesel, auto, dual air bags, ABS, cruise control, 8 seater, 62,000 kms $37,995 $12,995 1996 Toyota Camry 220 GL 1997 Toyota Hilux 2WD 2.2L, auto, NZ new, air conditioning, very tidy 2.4 petrol, 5 speed, flat deck, towbar, only 85,000 kms $5,995 $14,995 Waikato Toyota 179TC006-05 $24,995 2002 Toyota Prado VX L.M.V.D Phone 872 0017 - 29 Kihikihi Road, Te Awamutu Diane McFarlane Les Murrell Nick Wardlaw BRANCH MANAGER A/h 027 565 6565 VEHICLE SALES A/h 021 208 0260 VEHICLE SALES A/h 021 644 843 Te Awamutu Courier, Tuesday, June 28, 2005 PAGE 11 Welcome into this World from Kids at Home Ltd DESPERATELY SEEKING. . .

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.

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. Hobbit’s Ross Campbell threw his maiden 180 against Nomads the previous week.

By Colin Thorsen 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 sparring. Bronze medallists were Clint King (Hawks) men’s black belt power, Steven Pussell (Hawks) blue belt patterns adult, Sam Ricketts (TA) junior blue belt patterns junior, Kozmo Pool (Hawks) junior yellow belt patterns and peewee 5-8 Gup micoweight sparring, Sam Ricketts (TA) junior 1-4 Gup lightweight sparring, Chayse Gorton (Hawks) junior 5-8 Gup microweight sparring, Rawiri Riddell (Hawks) peewee 5-8 Gup lightweight sparring. Waikeria Hawks instructor Ross Campbell officiated as judge and jury, while Daniel Campbell was judge and referee. The Hawks fundraised for six months to cover costs for the bus and accomodation at Levin. They are grateful to their sponsors. 172TC034-05 One Grand Ca$hback Offer!

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 and strung together several phases.

Geoff Baker 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.

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.

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.’ SATURDAY, JULY 2 3 NATIONAL TITLE FIGHTS TE AWAMUTU EVENTS CENTRE - TICKETS ON SALE NOW From Civic Video & The Events Centre $15 ADULTS, $7 KIDS (13 & under) DOOR SALES - $20 ADULTS, $10 KIDS Huge Thanks To Our Round Sponsors CIVIC VIDEO, TORQUE TIME, CAMBRIDGE HOME KILLS, MANOLINE CAMBRIDGE, TUPPERWARE, TUTAKI WHANAU, PULSE, WRIGHTSONS KING COUNTRY For Round Sponsorships & Private Tables Phone (027) KICKBOX eekly for omen W Ladies of Te Awamutu Thur, June 30th 9.45am 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. On the morning of Visit Your ty Communi !! WEBSITE 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.

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. “DO THE RIGHT THING” Travelling Thru Trauma.
