Westwood's W.E. Sheehan Elementary School

Westwood's W.E. Sheehan Elementary School, 549 Pond Street, is hosting a non-competitive Science Fair from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Friday, February 10, 2006. The event is open to the public and admission is free of charge.

Sponsored by the Sheehan School P.T.A. and W.E.F (Westwood Educational Foundation) the fair is featuring 47 unique experiments representing the work of 74 third, fourth and fifth grade students. Science Fair co-coordinators are Sheehan School parents Lucinda Linde and Nancy Brind.

According to Brind, 41 percent of the students in the three eligible grades chose to participate in this newly established, extracurricular activity. She says the students' overwhelming response reflects a high level of interest in children to experience and explore ideas in science beyond the school's normal science curriculum.

"When almost half of the eligible students quickly signed up to participate, we knew we were doing something important for the kids," Brind said. "In fact, a full 50 percent of all third grade girls and boys are doing experiments at the fair."

Lucinda Linde, a 1982 graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, first recognized the serious need to establish an annual science fair at Westwood's largest elementary school.

"We need to do whatever we can to help children get interested in and learn more about how they can make science and technology a real part of their lives," Linde said. "Here in New England, there are so many job opportunities in hot, new, technology-based industries like I.T. and biotech. But the companies that are right in our own backyard are filling their best positions with scientists and engineers from other countries. There just aren't enough Americans trained to do those jobs. It's a terrible dilemma and we really need to do something about opening our children's eyes to science."

To create the Sheehan School's annual science fair program, Linde applied for and was awarded a W.E.F. mini-grant in 2005. The mother of two explains that this science fair is organized to help children discover the science in everyday life and to learn how to apply the scientific method. She emphasizes that the Sheehan School Science Fair is ashowcase for children's science projects, but it isnot a competition.

"We just want to give students a chance to turn their ideas - any ideas - into projects that fit into the scope of the steps of the scientific method." Linde said. "Learning to approach problems, or ideas, using the scientific method will help children in all aspects of their daily lives - for the rest of their lives. The scientific method is simply based on observing the world around us and measuring our observations. Once a student learns how to apply the scientific method, that child is one step closer to discovering the scientist within."

A representative sample of the 47 experiments scheduled to be presented at the Sheehan School Science Fair include:

1. Is Rock Meadow Brook polluted? By 5th-grade scientist Evan Walsh.

2. A magnet monorail. By 4th-grade scientists Max Hasenauer and Sean Cote.

3. What makes a curveball curve? By 5th-grade scientists David Driscoll and Sean Flynn.

4. Turn that lemon on! (Making a battery out of a lemon to turn on a light bulb.) By 3rd-grade scientists Katherine Brind and Halley Husted.

5. Which gum holds its flavor best? By 3rd-grade scientists Jackie Kremer and Leicia Henderson.

6. Twisters. By 3rd-grade scientists Ian Marten and Jimmy Conway.

7. Electro-plating metals. By 3rd-grade scientist Tommy Allen.

8. How far will the marshmallow go? By 3rd-grade scientist Kate McMurray.

9. How coral reefs are made. By 4rd-grade scientists Katherine Santisi and Olivia Giannakopoulous.

10. The effect of food and temperature on the metamorphic rate of a mealworm. By 3rd-grade scientist Jack Walter.

Westwood Educational Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 1991 by Westwood resident Barbara Friedman. Its mission is to promote community spirit through lifelong enrichment opportunities for all members of the Westwood community. The Foundation is committed to encouraging learning beyond the traditional school curriculum and it supports initiatives that offer self-education opportunities for all members of the community. Since its inception, W.E.F. has awarded more than $375,000 in grants., Westwood Press, Nedham MA, USA February 9, 2006.

'Remarkable' Hilda dies aged 109


Hilda Brind THE oldest resident of a WGC nursing home has died at the age of 109.
Hilda Brind, who lived at Hyde Valley House, passed away on January 28.
Hilda featured in the WHT when she celebrated her birthday in September.
She leaves one son - former Welwyn Hatfield Council leader Alan Brind - five grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
Her husband, Leonard Charles, a civil servant, was captured by the Germans while serving in the trenches in World War One. He died in 1937 and Hilda never remarried.
She lived at Paddocks House, Panshanger, until moving to Hyde Valley House ten years ago.
When she was a teenager she worked as a children's nanny and she continued to look after other people, visiting elderly neighbours to help them with their housework.
Paying tribute, her grandson Jonathan said: "She was a remarkable old lady who had a fierce determination to lead a life filled with service for her friends, her family and those around her who were less fortunate than herself."
Her funeral took place last Wednesday at Harwood Park Crematorium in Stevenage.

Derby defeat leaves Blues off the pace

16 February 2006
East Men's League Division One
East Men's League Division One
Harpenden 1 Luton Town 3
HARPENDEN went into the local derby against Luton knowing only a win would keep them in contention for the title race in Division One.
Things started brightly with excellent inter-play leading to an early Blues short corner. Captain Mike Emes executed a slick routine, slipping the ball to the lunging Dan Burgess at the far post who was denied by a goal-line foot. The inevitable result was a penalty flick from which Emes converted to give Harpenden the early lead.
The talented Luton side quickly hit back with a fizzing flick from a short corner which left Harpenden 'keeper Ben Brind with little chance.
At 1-1 the game was evenly poised but a tempestuous challenge from Nigel Timms saw him sin-binned after only being on the pitch for a matter of minutes. Captain Emes then followed him to the bin when his protests were not to the umpire's liking and suddenly Harpenden were down to nine men.
Luton took the lead shortly afterwards and, although Harpenden held out until half time, they never really recovered. The second half saw Luton extend their lead to 3-1 from another short corner.
Harps tried to respond and Russell Timms sent the ball goalwards only to be denied illegally and Harps were awarded another penalty flick. This time Emes' shot went wide and the score remained 3-1 to Luton.
Harpenden will ring the changes next week to try and find a solution after recent form has left them with only one point from a possible nine since Christmas.

Revitalised Hinckley's Midlands Two West victory over Camp Hill on Saturday was the perfect response to one of the heaviest defeats in their history.
Just seven days after a 77-3 humbling at Kenilworth, Mick Davey's side rallied magnificently to record a 44-15 success over the Birmingham side.
"The players were very upset about what happened at Kenilworth", said Davey. "We couldn't do anything right in that game - we did very little wrong on Saturday. It was very pleasing."
Full-back Adam Boot led Hinckley's recovery by scoring a try, three conversions and a penalty. The other try-scorers were Greg Lennox, Christian Bennett, Dave Gatherum, Dave Massarella, Mark Davey and Pat Brooks.
Market Bosworth moved a step nearer to ensuring they will stay in Midlands One next season after an impressive 35-9 success over Dunstablians.
Fred Gutteridge, Damien Steele, Steve Wallace and Jon Bosanquet scored the Bosworth tries, with Steele adding three conversions and three penalties.
Two East leaders South Leicester maintained their momentum with a 43-3 win at Paviors. South collected tries from Mitch Read, Dave Addison, captain Adam Cocks, Glyn Devaney and Mark Lord, who added another 18 points, including a drop-goal.
Loughborough Students were in vintage form as they eased past Spalding 55-0 to avenge a 37-34 defeat last October.
Students' scorers were Lloyd Williams-Jones, Adam Parr, Toby Henry, Mark Gracie, Mike Coady, Mike Melford (2), Tom Chesters and Steve Collins, with Rory Wood landing five conversions.
Three East (North) leaders Melton Mowbray still have a 100-per-cent record after a 19-5 win at Coalville.
The table-toppers scored all their points when Coalville were down to 14 men after Matt Chamberlain had been yellow-carded just before half-time.
Melton's try-scorers were Sam Clemons, Stuart Morley and Mark Cox, with Clemons adding two conversions.
Michael Richmond scored for Coalville in the final quarter.
Syston ran in 70 unanswered points against Grimsby, with second-row forward James Bergl celebrating a hat-trick of tries.
However, the rest of the County's sides in the division lost out narrowly.
Loughborough had the majority of possession at Ilkeston, but could not make it count as they went down 13-10. Luffs' scorers were Chris Burbidge and James Brind.
Belgrave were beaten 26-23 at Lincoln, who snatched victory with a stoppage-time try, and winger William Armstrong scored all of Oakham's points - a try and two penalties - but they were narrow 12-11 losers at Nottingham Moderns. Leicester Mercury 10:30 - 21 February 2006

Bachelors also need a place to live
Dubai: One thing many people who live in Dubai agree on is that finding a good place to live at a reasonable price can be difficult.
Rents seem to be climbing upwards fast.
In recent weeks, securing suitable accommodation has become particularly difficult for one group of people: bachelors.
As reported in Gulf News, some landlords in both Dubai and Sharjah have decided not to renew tenancy agreements on flats being used by bachelors.
Officials say they have received complaints from families about disturbance caused by the unmarried.
And they insist it is not right that 20 bachelors should be packed into a two or three-bedroom flat.
Is ejecting bachelors a sensible measure to safeguard family life, or do blanket bans on single people unfairly tar all bachelors with the same brush? In a recent Gulf News poll, 87 per cent of respondents said bachelors were being "unfairly victimised" by landlords, while nine per cent said they were not and four per cent were unsure.

Gulf News spoke to a variety of Dubai residents some of them bachelors, others family people to find out what they thought.
Syrian American architect Samer Kallas, a 45-year-old bachelor, said it was "not fair" to get rid of the unmarried.
"Maybe you can differentiate between people on the basis of their age, because younger people are more noisy than the elderly, but not on the basis of their marital status," he said.
Indian therapist Asha Samtani, 56, was also against kicking out bachelors, saying there should not be "such strict rules" that ban them from certain accommodation blocks.
She said she understood the concerns of those who felt that bachelors could be disruptive or engage in immoral behaviour.
However, she said if individual flats that contained bachelors were not causing a problem it was not right to ask them to leave.
"There are exceptions to every rule. If the landlords feel the bachelors are reasonable people, they should be allowed to stay," she said.
Irish quantity surveyor Terry Hand, 62, said it was "unfair and extreme" to remove all the bachelors.
"It may be that some bachelors deserve to be evicted, but it should be done on a case-by-case basis," he said.
Georgina Porter, 34, a British housewife, said she had read the reports about the moves to eject the bachelors and thought what was happening was "terrible".
"They treat bachelors really unfairly. Most of them are just trying to earn money and send some back to their families some of them have families of their own back home and it is very hard for them to afford the rents in Dubai.
"Most of them are labourers and security people at hotels and I think they should be left alone," she said.
Simon Brind, 38, a British general manager at an insurance company, said he lived next door to a villa with four bachelors and had no problem with them.
"Everybody has got the right to live where they want to. I am a family man with one daughter but I think the bachelors next door are fun. We mix with them and it's quite nice," he said.
Indian accountant Anjali Sagar, 30, said: "It's not fair [to eject bachelors] because if people are respectful and they know limits it is not necessary.
"I don't find it a problem living near bachelors. There are some near me but they are hardly ever home at all."
Indian driver Anil Bahtwadi said it was "not good" to eject bachelors from their accommodation. "Anyone should be allowed to live there. It is difficult to be a bachelor here. In Jumeirah for example it is very hard to find accommodation as a bachelor," said the 45-year-old, who has a family back in India.
However, there were several people who took the opposite view and said it was sensible to have family-only accommodation.
Hashim Khalel, a 28-year-old Indian sales manager, said "families should be separate from bachelors". "I think it's not good having them together. It's safer having families in their own," he said.
Rui Sequeira, 44, from India, who is married with a family and works as a manager with a company, took a similar view.
"I used to live in Saudi Arabia and there it was a complete no no having bachelors living close to families, but here it seems to be more acceptable.
"However I don't think bachelors always realise they have to look after the building and ensure it is a peaceful place in which to live.
"Sometimes kids have exams and need peace and quiet, and bachelors might not be sensitive to these issues. Also, bachelors tend to crowd parking spaces and this puts a strain on the other tenants which is not fair," he said.
Also against mixing bachelors with families was Lope Martinez, a 38-year-old from the Philippines.
"You can understand why they don't want bachelors living near people with families. They have different lifestyles that will conflict with each other and make life difficult.
"It is much better for bachelors to be in accommodation blocks with other bachelors because that way they cannot disturb other people," he said

Harvey nicks two goals

JUBILANT Panshanger Yellows Leopards notched up their first win in the Under-9s Shield and only second victory of the season against Watton Youth on Saturday.
After an early save by keeper Tony Brain, the Leopards took command. Jonathon Brind, Lewis Clayton and Sam Clifton kept the Watton defence under constant pressure, which led to a well-taken goal from Clifton.
A tactical change saw defender Terri Harvey move into midfield in the second half and she promptly put the Leopards 2-0 ahead.
After Watton had pulled one back, Harvey earned her man-of-the-match award with her second goal to make the final score 3-1.

Loughborough Students celebrated a weekend double - and made it into their first County Cup final since 2003.
On Saturday, the Students scored eight tries in a 48-0 win over Mansfield in Midlands Two East, but the big one came 24 hours later with a 22-16 triumph at South Leicester in the semi-final of the County Cup.
South had beaten Students in both league encounters this term, but the visitors made it third time lucky at Wigston after the fortunes of the match swung dramatically in Students' favour during the second half.
They trailed 13-5 at the interval as South made a strong start, with Yomi Akinyemi scoring the Students try.
However, the Students snuffed out the threat of South's half-back combination, took over the lion's share of possession and ran in three tries from Mark Webber, Andy Hodgkins and Tom Chester, with Gary Collett landing one conversion.
Syston and Market Bosworth - who had a walkover after Oakham withdrew from their re-arranged first-round tie - will meet in the cup's second semi-final on March 18.
Loughborough will meet Vipers in the final of the new County Bowl.
Luffs beat Three East (North) rivals Coalville 25-13, despite trailing 13-5 at half-time.
"Coalville came right at us and made us pay for any mistakes, but we played better in the 20 minutes up to half-time and then worked well to the game-plan with the wind in our favour in the second half," said Luffs captain Ben Keast.
Ned Roberts scored a first-half try for Borough then, after the break, Ryan Brind kicked a penalty and converted tries by Tim Wilson and James Brind. Keast kicked a drop goal.
Coalville's first-half try came from Russ James, but an eight-point lead at that stage was never going to be enough. Aaron Partridge kicked two penalties and a conversion.
Dom Hawes and Andy Tomlinson scored the tries as Vipers beat Aylestone St James 13-8 to book their place in the final. Jimmies scored through a try from Jacob Harmer and a Glenn Chapman penalty.
"The Jimmies had some strong guys up front and some good backs, but we were only 8-0 down at half-time and in that wind they needed a few more points than that," said Vipers coach Mark Anderson.
"In the second half we pegged them back and took the points when we could."
Jimmies spokesman Kev Ball said: "It was a good game of rugby and the lads showed they can compete against teams from a couple of leagues above them.
Belgrave are in the final of the County Shield after they beat Aylestonians 51-0.
The other semi-final, between Stoneygate and Olds Newts, was postponed.

Anger in Matawai at sudden transfer of Well Child service

by Nicola Brennan

Matawai parents are furious over the Public Health Unit's decision to transfer their Well Child service to Plunket and Turanga Health in Gisborne.

Around 60 angry parents gathered at the Matawai community hall on Tuesday to voice their concerns at an information forum arranged by the Public Health Unit (PHU), Plunket and Turanga Health.

The forum quickly turned into heated debate as parents accused Public Health staff of failing to provide them with adequate notice of the service's transfer.

One parent said that contrary to what PHU group manager Tom Scott had said in a Gisborne Herald article on Saturday, the PHU had not worked closely with parents to ensure the transition went smoothly.

"We have had none or very little communication from them," Caroline Rau said.

Mrs Rau said she knew of only one mother who had received the "follow up phone call" Mr Scott spoke about in the article.

The parents said they were happy with the service provided by their local rural health nurse (RHN) Jason Ward and were concerned that the move would jeopardise his position in the community, and in turn the health of their children.

Primary and community health portfolio manager Michelle Lexmond said the transfer would not place Mr Ward's position, or the health of their children, at risk.

"Jason's job and hours are not in jeopardy," Ms Lexmond said.

She said if something went wrong with a child in Matawai then it would be a medical issue, and not affected by changes to the Well Child service.

Virginia Brind, acting general manager of Tairawhiti District Health's (TDH) funding team, said the move would help RHNs, in this case Mr Ward, provide a better service to the community.

RHNs would now have the time they used to spend on Well Child to focus on the rest of their work, Ms Brind said.

The PHU decided to exit from the Well Child service because of changes to the training needed to deliver the service.

From July 1, Well Child nurses will need to have a post-graduate qualification over and above being a registered nurse.

Ms Lexmond said the PHU could not sustain the costs associated with that.

Also, the hours RHNs worked in Well Child were not enough to maintain clinical competency in the area.

"We have to ensure that the services we provide meet the national standards," Ms Brind said.

Matawai Motu Community Health chairwoman Pam Murphy, who is also a member of TDH's Community and Public Health Advisory committee, disputed claims that community concerns had been heavily considered at advisory meetings.

Mrs Murphy said the advisory committees had gone "into committee", meaning the public could not sit in, when the issue had been discussed. As such, she had not been able to voice her community's concerns.

Ms Lexmond said the new service would be evaluated in February, 2007.

Ms Brind suggested that more forums be held in Matawai shortly to further discuss concerns.

Narnia under threat

By Reg Little

Ron Brind in the woodland

A wildlife trust has come under fire for cutting down trees in the woodland that helped inspire CS Lewis to write The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

The land next to the author's former home, in Risinghurst, Oxford, known as "the real Narnia", is now a nature reserve.

But Narnia has come under attack from chainsaws, claims the man who organises CS Lewis tours of Oxford. And he says the local wildlife trust BBOWT is to blame.

Ronald Brind says the trust has needlessly cut down many trees and is changing the character of the woodland that proved an inspiration to the Oxford don, who became known around the world for his Narnia books.

Mr Brind said many foreign visitors to Lewis's old home were horrified by the state of the reserve.

But the wildlife trust, which has owned the site since 1969, defended the work, which it said was part of a strategy to deter vandals and make the reserve more accessible.

Mr Brind was a childhood friend of Lewis's stepson, Dougie Gresham, and was a regular visitor to the author's home.

He said: "They have been up there with chainsaws. When I asked what was going on, they told me they were taking out all the non-native species.

"It's disgusting and scandalous. They include trees that have taken 60 and 70 years to grow.

"American visitors who come here in search of Lewis are distraught. They think it's horrific. This was CS Lewis's back garden for more than 30 years."

Mr Brind has also complained about the state of the lake and the amount of rubbish strewn about.

With the Walt Disney version of the classic book certain to renew visitor interest in Lewis, one local resident said: "The wood looks dreadful. I suppose it will get better in time. But they're destroying mature trees, which Lewis himself would have known."

BBOWT said neighbours were consulted last year about a strategy to clean up the reserve after repeated problems with vandalism, litter and scrambler bikes.

Spokesman Sophie Lewis said sycamore trees were cut down to encourage wildlife and undergrowth.

Ms Lewis said: "Because of their rapid rate of growth, the trees that have been cut down would not have been there when CS Lewis was walking around.

"Mr Brind wants a lovely place to take American tourists. But that's not our primary concern.

"We're a conservation organisation and would not do anything that would upset the biodiversity of the site."

Central League kicks off today

By Jared Dennis

SOCCER: The first round of Central Federation League soccer gets under way today with a predicted top-of-the-table clash between Wanganui City and Gisborne Thistle.

The game will be at Wembley Park at 2.45pm while the other match involving a local side sees Wanganui Athletic playing Taradale away.

City coach Tex von Kwiatkowski is confident his team will improve on last season's fourth placing, while Gisborne won the competition last year and are expected to be as competitive this season.

Last season Thistle beat City in both their encounters. "I realistically expect a game from the top two teams of the league That will lack on quality because it is the season opener and nobody wants to lose it," he said.

"This game tomorrow will be under strict tactical orders." A defence-orientated approach is expected from the away side, waiting for opportunities to counter-attack.

"Thistle has a few very experienced players in their team who can organise a game perfectly.

"They will try to slow the game down and making it fast whenever necessary."

Von Kwiatkowski said his team had nothing to fear but that of course they didn't want lose the important first game. "Our first aim will be not conceding any goals.

"We can play very fast football and we have proven it last weekend by beating Central League side Napier City Rovers." City have had a strong pre-season campaign, winning four from four games and this should bode well for their championship-opener.

"This game will be won by the team with the stronger will and the ability to pass the pain border.

"I won't be unhappy to start with a draw if we can achieve it. But there are always goals to achieve, why not tomorrow."

Talk coming out of the Athletic camp is not quite as positive, with coach Shane Wye only receiving the appointment two weeks ago and no pre-season fixtures played. He said the team was definitely in a re-building phase, with only four or five players back from last year after a number had left the club.

It is a young team that travel to Taradale today, with "three lads under 18, a few in their early 20s and a few older guys."

"They are always hard to beat on their home ground," Wye said of last seasons third placed side. "They always start the season well, then fall off the pace a bit.

"But too be truthful I am not really worried about them, I've just got to make sure my team is as good as possible." Wye had not confirmed his squad but said Glen Toy would be the captain.

The Wanganui City squad is: Glen Graham, Brendon Kerr, Ricky Doolan, Joshua Annabell, James Barnes, Jared Bloor, Ben Toyne, Tony Lockett, Phillip Randal, Adam Hausman, Neil Davis, Chris Annabell, Mark Brind, Tim Hayes.

Truck spills 22 tons of rebar
Curve in Richford scene of many accidents over years

Journal Staff


RICHFORD--- Janet Gordinier was just sitting down to breakfast at the Richford Diner Wednesday morning, when her mother ran in and told her a truck had flipped over into Gordinier's yard.

A 24-year volunteer firefighter with the Richford Volunteer Fire Department, Gordinier immediately left for the station, hopping on a firetruck to respond to her own home.

"The truck was fully upside down in our yard," Gordinier said.

The accident, said New York State Police, took place about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. A tractor-trailer headed east on State Route 79 near West Creek Road overturned around a curve, spilling about 44,000 pounds of steel rebars into the roadway and into Gordinier's yard. It happened about three miles from the Tompkins-Tioga County line.

The driver, 41-year-old Randall D. Allison, of Savannah, N.Y. was later charged with failure to reduce speed around a curve, and for traveling with an unsecured load, state police said. He is scheduled to appear in Richford Town Court.

Allison suffered a bruised shoulder, and was taken by Richford Ambulance to Cayuga Medical Center, where he was treated and released, according to State Police Sgt. Terry Sullivan.

Sullivan said Allison was coming from Auburn, and that the truck was registered with Conway Beam. During the initial investigation, State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement found nothing mechanically wrong with the truck, Sullivan said.

No information regarding the accident was available from the New York State Department of Transportation's regional office Wednesday.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, state DOT, and Richford Fire Department all responded to the scene of the accident, which was cleared by about 2 p.m., state police said.

The accident wasn't the first in Gordinier's memory - nor in the memory of nearby residents.

"This is the fourth tractor-trailer accident in two years," Gordinier said. She recalled two similar incidents at the same corner with garbage trucks, and one with a Wegmans truck.

Gordinier's neighbor, Ed Brind, was looking out the window Wednesday morning when he saw the truck going sideways around the curve, flipping over into his Gordinier's yard.

"They had a whole lot of reinforcing rods, an inch and a half in diameter," Brind said. "I seen it when it happened. We were lucky."

Brind, 72, has lived in the same house for 50 years, and said he could look back at least 30 years on accidents involving the curve near West Creek Road - a milk tanker, trucks with hay bales, and one time, a truck full of oats.

"It's a bad corner," he said.

But beyond somehow getting traffic to slow down in the 55 mph stretch of road, he isn't sure what the solution is.

"I don't think they could put up any lights," Brind said.

About 15 years ago, the state Department of Transportation worked on the corner, cutting it back so it would be less severe and placing banks around it, several neighbors said. During that time, the DOT also removed guardrails that had buffered the curve.

"It was sharper, and you had to slow down to get around the bend," said Paul Foster, who owns property across Route 79 near where the accident happened Wednesday. "Now it's very gradual, and it kind of keeps coming on you. So just when you think the corner's over, it's not."

Foster said he feels the signage could be better to warn about the dangerous curve, particularly coming into West Creek Road where it's difficult to see.

"You don't know who's going to be coming around that corner," Foster said.

Rural area hard hit by midwife shortage

by Nicola Brennan

THE shortage of lead maternity caregivers in Tairawhiti continues to be a problem, especially in rural communities, say community and public health advisory committee members.

Waikohu communities, such as Matawai and Te Karaka, continue to have problems accessing midwives.

Committee member Pamela Murphy said the lack of midwives in the region made it harder and harder for mothers in western rural communities to obtain a midwife.

"Mums in western rural communities just can't get a lead maternity caregiver," Mrs Murphy said.

"Lead maternity caregivers just don't want to go out in to the country."

Funding and planning acting general manager Virginia Brind agreed that rural communities certainly had issues in terms of timely access to midwives.

Chief executive Jim Green said it was not just western rural women, but the entire district, who were having difficulties getting a midwife.

"Many women are coming through that have not been able to access a midwife," he said.

The effects of the shortage would always be felt in communities where access was difficult and where mothers had higher needs, Mr Green said.

Tairawhiti District Health (TDH) had spoken to the Minister of Health about the shortage and possible solutions to the problem.

The ministry agreed to fund the recruitment of extra midwives for the hospital but Mr Green said this proposal came with several problems.

In time, midwives usually left the hospital to go into private practice, putting further strain on TDH.

He agreed that midwives in Tairawhiti would still be built up over time, even if they were to go into private practice.

A shortage of midwives nationally also meant they would be hard to recruit.

Mr Green said he suspected there was not enough training nationally for midwives.

He suggested if TDH facilitated midwife training in Gisborne, it could help increase the number of midwives operating here.

City has chance to top table

By Jared Dennis

SOCCER: The opportunity to go top of the table outright is on offer when Central Federation League soccer kicks off in Wanganui today.

Although it is only round three of the competition, the match at Wembley Park between Wanganui City and Palmerston North End is a clash of the only two unbeaten teams.

Wanganui Athletic, on the other hand, travel to New Plymouth tomorrow with the aim of getting points on the board when they play Team Taranaki.

In the last round North End beat Team Taranaki 5-1. A result that has made the league take notice, as the Palmerston North club are newly promoted and Taranaki were one of the stronger teams last season.

City coach Tex von Kwiatkowski said he thought North End were in a similar situation to what his team was in last year when they had just come into the league.

"Your boys are always playing with a special motivation because they want to prove their qualifications and they want to survive," he said.

The North End squad has five new players from last year, with keeper Matt Borren, captain Gary Hodge, former New Zealand under 17 rep Dave Boyak and striker Richard Grey all expected to feature.

"They will fight for every inch of the park and that is for sure," von Kwiatowski said.

"They have nothing to loose and can only surprise by achieving a good result."

Keeping the players motivated and ensuring they don't ease off, thinking they have achieved all they need to, has been the coaches biggest training issue.

"This is the problem if you are leading the table and you want to stay there for any longer, you always have to go the extra mile because everybody else is chasing you," von Kwiatowski said.

"And this is new to the boys and the team because it never happened in the club history before that WCFC was leading the Central Federation league table."

Josh Annabel is unlikely to play due to a knee injury, while a couple of others are missing due to work commitments.

Missing players is an issue Athletic coach Shane Wye has to consider also when his team travels north tomorrow. The game has been moved to Sunday as one of their players brothers is getting married today and a number of the team are to attend.

There are also others away for the game, some at the V8 Supercars in Auckland.

Wye is expecting a tough game at Merrilands Park. "Based on last year's results they were one of the favourites to win it," he said.

"[Team Taranaki coach] Andy Irvine is a physical player so I would say Taranaki will play that way, especially after losing 5-1 last week.

"It is never easy playing in New Plymouth."

The younger players in the team are getting used of training in indoors, giving Wye more opportunities to meld the team into a playing unit.

"Training this week was 300 times better than last week," he said.

"We are starting to look a lot better, though obviously game-play is most important."

Registering their first competition points is the main aim, although Athletic do have a game in hand after their last round match versus Linton first XI was postponed.

"It's an important thing that we get at least one point. "We don't want to go two games without a point before we play City next week."

Wanganui Athletic squad: K Hayward, A Crossley, S Wye, J Malipaard, M Williams, S Burney, J Granville, J Tyson, K McKerras, G Toy, S Crossley.

Wanganui City squad: G Graham, B Kerr, R Doolan, J Annabell, J Barnes, J Bloor, B Toyne, T Lockett, P Randal, A Hausman, N Davis, C Annabell, M Brind, S Toyne.

Palmerston North End squad: M Borren, C Szuldak, M Bruhn, D Boyack, Z Robinson, M Jacques, M Batt, M Griffin, J Waayer, R Gray, W Hodge, G Hodge(c), M Wallace.

Proposals for a Christmas ice rink in the centre of Newbury get the backing of town's traders

NEWBURY'S Market Place could be transformed into a winter wonderland this Christmas. Proposals to put an ice rink in the Market Place this week gained support from the town's traders.

The idea was originally proposed by market manager Steve Brind and it has now been given the thumbs up by the Newbury Retail Association.

Town centre manager Mitch Roberts has put forward the dates of December 20-24 in a bid to attract maximum support for retailers in the run up to Christmas.

The ice rink is expected to cost around £9,225 for the four days and it is hoped some of the funding could come from the Town Centre Management Steering Group.

The town's retailers may also be asked to combine to donate the remaining money.

The possibility of allowing the attraction in town for a longer period is also currently being looked into.

The proposed entry fee would be around £3-£5 for 20 minutes.

An alternative site, in Broadway, has also been proposed.

BRADFORD 2nds won the toss and elected to bowl against Malmesbury 2nds. Good opening spells from Tim Burrows (8-1-13-1) and captain Adrian Cooksey (8-2-13-1) ensured Malmesbury struggled for runs from the start, but it was the introduction of veteran left arm seamer Bob Powell that did the damage for Bradford as he took 4 for 17 from 6.5 overs.

Malmesbury's total of 103 did not look enough for an experienced Bradford Town batting line-up to chase down, but some good bowling from McNeil (12-4-13-3) and Brind (10.3-1-26-1) ensured Bradford had to work hard for victory.

It was left to Darren Jones with a composed 27 not out to finally see Bradford home in the 38th over to record a three wicket win.

Stallholders voice fears over business slump
By Sarah Radford, Online reporter
Phone: 01635 564632

TRADERS at Newbury's historic market are saying their business could be in jeopardy if a trade slump continues.

The stallholders claim sales have suffered as road closures steer shoppers away from the town centre.

Photographer Jane Garret, who lives in Cold Ash, has sold cards and framed pictures from her market stall for just over a year.

Mrs Garret said it was essential shoppers return to the market, or some stallholders could go under.

She said: "We have to encourage people back somehow. I honestly think the damaging thing is having retail parks going up,

which is taking custom away from here.

"The road works have caused a lot of damage because of the bridge being closed and Northbrook Street being closed and I think people are not coming into town."

Mrs Garrett added: "I would like to thank our market manager Steve Brind though, and his right hand man Mick Connersby, for trying to help the traders through the good times and the bad."

Tony Harris, who has run his clothes stall on the market since 1966, said it was becoming harder and harder for the new generation of traders to stay afloat.

He said: "For us to compete we have to be far more aggressive, we have to be on the ball, we have to upgrade, we have to do not the cheapest stuff, but better stuff at a cheaper price."

European Chemical, Oil Stocks Advance; Anglo, Unilever Decline

European chemical and oil stocks rose after earnings from BASF AG and Total SA beat analysts' estimates. MAN AG, Europe's No. 3 truckmaker, also gained after reporting better-than-expected profit.

Anglo American Plc and BHP Billiton led mining companies lower as gold prices declined from 25-year highs. Unilever, the maker of Hellmann's mayonnaise and Knorr soups, and UBS AG, Europe's largest bank, declined after releasing results.

The Dow Jones Stoxx 600 Index was little changed, adding 0.1 percent to 337.60 as of 9:14 a.m. in London. The Stoxx 50 also gained 0.1 percent, and the Euro Stoxx 50, an index for the 12 countries using the euro, rose 0.2 percent.

The Stoxx 600 has doubled in value since March 2003 as companies boosted profit. The measure is up 14 percent in the past six months, even as interest rates rise and oil prices are at near-record highs.

"The market has had a very good six months and we are starting to notice a lack of buyers, " said Nick Brind, fund manager at New Star Asset Management, where he helps to manage the equivalent of $32.65 billion.

FIREFIGHTERS were called to a severe blaze in Covingham.

Fire engines from Swindon, Westlea and Stratton fire stations attended a semi-detached house in Brind Close, shortly after 4pm on Saturday.

Jags deserve more support

by Iain Gillies


How do you get the fans back into the grounds? This must be a worrying thought for Gisborne City and LJ Hooker Thistle clubs as they barge on into the second half of what, by any measure, must be considered a successful season.

A big plus for Thistle is that flying midfielder Nicky Land is nearing full fitness again. He has been training regularly and the shoulder injury that has kept him on the sidelines for the past month is just about right.

Thistle, in particular, deserve better support because they are playing in the Central League, a division below City in the Capital Central, but are still very much in contention for promotion.

Thistle player-coach Bruce Hill has put together an exciting squad and they face a particularly important game here at 2.30pm today.

Wanganui City are also in the promotion hunt and will fully test Hill's new-look side.

New look? The addition of former City stalwarts Kane Stirton and Nic Somerton has put the finishing touches on Thistle's attacking flair.

An injury has kept outstanding right-back Luke McGuinness on the sidelines but youngster Shane Mooney and veteran Warren Veall have been playing well.

With central midfielders Dave Watson and Hill using the ball with vision and accuracy, the home side played some lovely football despite losing to Team Taranaki last weekend.

Unfortunately, the Jags were caught out four times in defence by a sharp opposition. This has to be a worry when chasing the championship but Thistle's plight wasn't helped by the sending-off of keeper John Spawforth.

Even so, Spawforth wasn't at fault with the four goals. They were conceded by a rearguard who should have been more alert to the dangers posed by the nippy

visitors.Taranaki are a comparatively small team yet the opening goal was hard to believe. A free-kick was floated into the penalty box and the big defenders stood and watched as not-so-big midfielder Ben Brandt waltzed through and headed it into the net.

From the fans' point of view it was the signal for the most exciting first-half seen in any match at the Childers Road Reserve for many years- 3-3 at the break.

Two opportunist goals from Chris Spurr and a fine finish from Glenn Morley turned the game Thistle's way but Taranaki's former English professional striker Craig Graham grabbed the winner from a breakaway in the 60th minute.

A draw would have been a fair result because every Thistle player produced something extra when they were reduced to 10 men over the final 20 minutes.

Tomorrow? Wanganui City are no mugs. They hammered Thistle 6-2 in the opening match of the season, with Jared Bloor, Mark Brind, Tony Lockett, Josh Annabel and Phillip Randall all scoring. But Team Taranaki beat them, 4-3 on May 14 and if Thistle can rise to the occasion today the league will be wide open again.

Stallholders see trade boost after relocation to Northbrook Street

TROUBLED traders have had business boosted by Newbury Market's temporary relocation to Northbrook Street. Stalls, which have moved until 2007 while work on Market Place is underway, were described as busy and buzzing after their first day in their new home.

Takings were up for all traders on Thursday, and neighbouring shops also said they had benefited from the move. Newbury market manager Steve Brind said: "Everybody was in by quarter past eight and it went like a bomb. "The shops were pleased with us and they did well from it. "A lot of people came up to us and said we should be here all the time, not just for six months. There was a great response from the public."

Newburytoday reported in May how traders feared the market could die-out if something wasn't done to boost footfall.

Following their last trading day in Market Place, they revealed mixed reactions to the Northbrook Street move. Sylvia Conduit, who has run a stall for more than 30 years, believed the market should remain in its traditional home. Bob Levy, however, thought Newbury's market should follow in the footsteps of other towns, and relocate permanently to the high street.

West End Stars Premiere Morning Musical at New End

by Caroline Ansdell

Tomorrow Morning, a new home-grown musical about couples preparing for a landmark day in their relationship, will receive its London premiere at the New End Theatre, Hampstead, from 10 July to 13 August 2006 (previews from 5 July).

The musical by British composer Laurence Mark Wythe (who also co-produces) is described as a funny but edgy look at the highs and lows of modern relationships. As one couple prepares to walk down the aisle, another couple is about to divorce. As the clock strikes twelve, it becomes clear that this is one couple separated by a decade and nobody is sure that they're doing the right thing.

West End stalwarts Emma Williams (Bat Boy, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), Stephen Ashfield (Taboo, Fame), Annette McLaughlin (Chicago, Anything Goes) and Alistair Robins (Beauty and the Beast, Aspects of Love) star in Tomorrow Morning.

Tomorrow Morning was a finalist for Theatre Building Chicago's Stages, for MMD the Works West End showcase and for Greenwich Musical Futures, all in 2003. This is its first full-scale London production.

Wythe's recent work includes musical adaptation and arrangements for Jack Dagger!, the music & lyrics for CR7 - Cancer Control Force, a new pop-musical commissioned for the BBC Tomorrow's World Roadshow and Cancer Research UK, and Wise Up!, an interactive drug-education gameshow that has toured schools in Greenwich. His other musicals include Roll on the Day, Hero, Tears of Amber and A Tragedy of Errors.

The premiere production of Tomorrow Morning is directed by Nick Winston and designed by Philip Witcomb, with musical direction by Matt Brind. It's presented at the New End by Hilary Williams.

Democrats Attack Pregnancy Centers That Tell Women Abortion's Risks
by Steven Ertelt Editor

Washington, DC ( -- Abortion advocates in Congress are continuing their campaign against pregnancy centers that provide women with tangible pregnancy help and abortion alternatives. Democrats on the House Committee on Government Reform released a report Monday claiming pregnancy centers getting federal funds are misleading women about abortion.

Pro-abortion Rep. Henry Waxman, a California Democrat, authored the report for the committee Democrats and claims "federally funded pregnancy resource centers often mislead pregnant teens about the medical risks of abortion." Waxman's report says pregnancy centers wrongly tell pregnant women that abortion can increase the risk of contracting breast cancer, can lead to mental or psychological distress, and can cause future fertility issues.

A 1996 report published by the British Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health looked at 23 previous studies and found abortion increases the breast cancer risk by 30 percent.

Biochemist Joel Brind of the Baruch College of the City University of New York says abortion exposes women to high levels of estrogen and affects the breast in a negative way, allowing a greater chance of contracting breast cancer.

* HILARY Brind is retiring as league secretary of the Johnnie Johnson Alnwick & District Cricket League, at the end of the 2006 season, having acted as assistant, and league secretary, for over 20 years. Obviously she will be a tremendous loss to the league which has a reputation for being the friendliest league in the North East. As league chairman, John Grey says he is deeply indebted to Hilary for her work over those years, work which carries on into the cricket close season as well as the normal playing season.

To enable the League to prepare for 2007, and to function properly, a secretary is essential. It is an honorary position, with expenses being available for stationery, postage, etc. Looking to the future, a computer, and corresponding skill on it, would be a definite advantage. Anyone interested in taking on this position for 2007, and hopefully for many years to come, is invited to contact John Grey, on 01669 630359, before Monday, September 25, 2006.

Diageo to uncork wine brands in retail market

C H Unnikrishnan / Mumbai September 14, 2006

Diageo, the world's largest liquor company, is likely to unveil its popular wine brands in the domestic retail market soon.

Diageo's wines, which are currently available at some duty-free counters in the country, have not yet hit the wider retail market, given its complex marketing structure.

At present, the premium spirit maker has distribution tie-ups with Flemingo, India Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC), Brind Co and a few others to sell wine brands at duty-free and embassy channels.

Company sources said it will extend these tie-ups to retail market as well by paying the duty for open market sales. Its major brands in the wine segment include Barton & Guestier, BV Costal, Blossom Hills, Justerini & Brooks, Piat d'Or and Sterling. Earlier, Diageo had plans for exclusive distribution and marketing joint ventures with local wine companies to explore the growing wine market in the country.

"There are no plans at the moment to tie up with local wine players to enter the segment, as the most suitable option now would be extending the existing channels like Flemingo and ITDC for the retail market," said the company sources.

Following the earlier move, Diageo had been in talks with a few wine companies in India. Since the company has shelved the proposal to form distribution agreements with local firms, it will offer import authorisation to its duty-free channels to cater to the retail market, the company sources added.

Flemingo Dutyfree Shop currently operates 25 stores from the arrival and departure terminals of 12 Indian airports across three regions -- north, south and west.

The company also has licence to operate duty-free shops at seaports in Chennai, Vishakhapatnam, Haldia, Goa and Mumbai. It has set up shops in cities such as Amritsar, Jaipur and Lucknow recently.

ITDC and Brind Co also have similar network at the duty-free and five per cent duty-free outlets.

Diageo, as part of expanding its premium spirit business in India, this week launched its scotch brand Haig Gold Label in the country with a price tag of Rs 600 per 750 ml bottle. The company has also signed a joint venture agreement with Radico Khaitan to re-enter the Indian-made foreign liquor market.

Arrest after bid to set death house ablaze

16.09.2006 By Kathryn Powley

A 33-year-old woman has been charged with arson following a fire at the Whangarei house where teenager Mairina Dunn was found bashed to death three weeks ago.

She will appear in the Whangarei District Court today.

Whangarei police and fire investigators have confirmed an accelerant was used to set fire to the Holmes Ave, Otangarei house in at least 10 different places.

The 1950s weatherboard house was only superficially damaged by the fires, which were reported about 5.40am yesterday.

Three weeks ago, on August 27, the house was the site of the brutal killing of 17-year-old Mairina.

Police have charged her boyfriend of three weeks, 31-year-old Nathan Charles Fenton, with her murder. His former partner Eileen Verna Everitt, 28, is accused of helping him avoid arrest, knowing he had committed murder. Yesterday there were no visible signs of fire damage on the outside of the house. But behind broken windows, smashed in the days after Mairina's killing, walls had been blackened with smoke. A few bunches of hand-picked flowers sat in beer bottles by the front steps.

Whangarei police Detective Andrew Clubley, who is investigating the suspected arson, said the fires were started throughout the house.

"We are concerned about it happening again. The obvious inference is it's a retaliation for the death there a few weeks ago," he said.

"The house is owned by a completely independent person. This is a privately owned house, by a person completely unrelated to those incidents."

Fire service investigator Craig Bain said whoever lit the fires had probably poured a highly flammable, light-weight accelerant, such as lighter fluid, turpentine or methylated spirits, about the house.

The property was unoccupied and had no furniture inside.

Mr Bain said since Mairina's killing the house had been redecorated ready for new tenants.

Yesterday he took a group of volunteer firefighters to the house as part of a training exercise.

The house owner declined to comment on the incident.

Fenton and Everitt are due to reappear in Whangarei District Court on September 21.

*The arson attack echoes two attempts in 2001 to burn down a house in Ngunguru. It was the home of George Mason, who had been found guilty of killing his girlfriend Natasha Tana-Brind at the Waiotoi Rd home. After the second arson attempt the house was declared unsafe, dismantled and burned on site by the Tutukaka Coast Fire Brigade.

City lose English import Brind to Waikato FC


Following his footballing dreams will see Wanganui City English import Mark Brind move to Hamilton on Monday.

Maybe not a step up to Liverpool or Barcelona, but definitely a step up in soccer terms, after he picked up a contract to play for Waikato FC in the NZFC (New Zealand Football Championship).

The 21-year-old will play his last game for the season in Wanganui today, when Wanganui City take on Wanganui Athletic in the Charity Cup final.

Then he will move north to join up with the Waikato FC franchise in pre-season build-up before its first NZFC game against Waitakere United on October 15.

Brind, who lived just outside Oxford in England and played in a semi-professional football league there, was one of three English players to join the Wanganui City club this season.

He said he didn't have any expectations on the standard of play here before he arrived in New Zealand, but that he had had a good season with the club.

"I think it was a pretty good year for us," he said.

"We were all a bit frustrated about not winning the championship. We definitely thought we were the best and deserved to win the title.

"If we can finish it off with a win in the Charity Cup it will be a good way to go out, runner-up in the league and winner of two cups."

Brind's best memory from the 2006 City season came after their 2-1 victory over eventual title winners Team Taranaki.

"The atmosphere at Wembley [Park] that day was awesome," he said.

"The cheers when we scored the winning goal and all the people running on to the field at the end was something special.

"It's nice to have people that care how well you do. "It's not like that so much back home, because there is just so many teams."

The main difference football-wise from his playing days in England was the amount of space you get on the ball.

He said it looked as if the NZFC was going to be a similar level to the semi-professional league he played in England.

The big aim for his time in Waikato is to consolidate himself in the 17-man match day squad, with a total of 24 players in the wider squad.

"It's a lot quicker than the Federation League," he said of the trial games he played for Waikato.

"You can't make a mistake and have to be at 100 percent all the time.

"The challenge is going to be being in the team on game day."

Brind said he was not sure if he would be back in Wanganui next season.

"I'm not making any plans. I'm just hoping that the football can go on for a bit longer." September 30, 2006

He has enjoyed a fantastic record of success this summer including gaining second place in the World Freestyle Championships in Bideford, Devon.

Performances like that have gained Rayleigh student Brind a sponsorship deal with MBS, the largest mountain boarding company in the world.

"Next year I am hoping to get all the European Cup and UK Championships rounds and compete in the World Freestyle Championships again," said Brind. September 27, 2006

Senior Colts Grand Final... Crows hang on for good win

Report: Kenn Rogers

Winning any game is a good feeling, but to win a grand final by 11 points, after a very slow start, was an especially good feeling for the Crows against arch rival, CY Cougars, at Paskeville on Saturday.

A tight first quarter saw the Cougars jump away to a 2-0 to 0-1 start by the first change. Max Daniel and Alex Greenslade were playing very well, and the Cougars looked like running away with the game.

The eastern end of the ground was tough on goal scores, all scoring being done at the western end.

The Crows jumped away in the second term, booting 5-2, while holding the Cougars to 0-4, to lead 5-3 to 2-4.

Not to be outdone, the Cougars fought back in the third term to be only four points down at the final change, 4-5 to 5-3.

Layton McMahon was a thorn in Cougars' side, and Trent Tilbrook was doing everything right. In defence, Nick Brind and Leslie Wardale were playing well.

Both sides threw everything into the game in the last stanza. Tim Honner, Ben Vaiana and Cameron Webster were magnificent, along with young McIntyre and Will Correll who booted two goals.

The Crows managed 2-3 and held a fast-finishing Cougars to 1-2 to run out winners by 11 points, undefeated all season.

Final scores: CMS Crows 7-6, CY Cougars 5-7.

Best on ground, Layton McMahon.

Cawood win in penalties thriller

By Bob Grainger

Cawood won a cliff-hanger at home to Nestle Rowntree Reserves in the first round of the York FA Saturday Junior Cup.

Cawood goals from Andrew Oldfield, Ben Rawson and Peter McGoughin from the penalty spot took the game into extra-time, when it ended all-square at 3-3.

Indiscipline saw Rowntree reduced to ten players before the final whistle.

In the penalty shoot-out it took eight penalties each before Cawood won by five penalties to four. They were indebted to 'keeper David Brinstead for saving the day.

Indiscipline was also to cost Terrington Glory dear when they were cruising to victory against Huntington Reserves.

Terrington's 'keeper was sent off and in the final ten minutes Huntington snatched a 2-1 victory with a Neil Cadywold penalty plus a goal from Tom Hurst.

For the second successive season, Dringhouses Reserves have been knocked out of the cup at the first hurdle. They lost 3-0 to Post Office, whose goals in an outstanding display came from Garry Humphreys, Danny Walton and John Darrock. He led the forwards in outstanding fashion.

LNER Builders won 3-0 at home to Helperby from the Harrogate League.

The first clear-cut chance fell to Helperby's Peter Orton but he shot wide of the target, and it was Builders who took the lead when, after ten minutes, a ball was played back in from the left for Simon Brind to stab into the net.

This stirred Helperby into action, with Darren Furness going close while Builders 'keeper Ian Clancy made a fine save.

In the second half, Adam Ongathorpe took advantage of a poor back pass to double the Builders' advantage and, six minutes from time, Danny Gothard with his first goal for the Builders sealed victory. September 25, 2006

FOOTBALL: Yarnton sunk by super Stuart

Oxfordshire Senior League: Stuart Dunham fired a double as Kennington beat Yarnton 6-4 in a Presidents' Cup first-round extra-time thriller.

It looked all over as Kennington cruised into a 3-0 lead.

However, Yarnton did not give up as they took the game into extra-time, only to suffer heartbreak as Kennington grabbed two late strikes from breakaways.

Mark Brooker, Robert Cattell and Michael Van De Mortell got Kennington's other goals, while Amin Jmil (2), Dave Riseley and Paul Skinner netted for Yarnton.

Chadlington are through after winning a penalty shoot-out at Berinsfield.

Mark Corbett gave Chadlington a first-half the lead, heading in Dan Cleevely's cross only for Berinsfield to hit back in the second half to lead 2-1.

That was despite Danny Brind being sent off for a second bookable offence.

Cleevely then levelled to take the tie into extra-time.

It looked like it was Berinsfield's day as they took a 4-2 lead with just minutes left.

But substitute Adam Robson pulled a goal back before Adam Tinkham equalised from the spot to set up a penalty shoot-out.

Berinsfield's scorers were Leigh Wise (2), Mark Ingram and Steve Bateman.

Eynsham are also through following a 2-1 away success against Rover Cowley.

After Rover went close through Stewart McCleary, Eynsham went ahead through Matthew Phillips.

After the break, Kion Sadie doubled Eynsham's tally with a back-post header.

A brilliant 30-yard free-kick from Jerome McCalmon then set up an anxious finish.

Launton Sports eased their way into the next round with a 5-0 win at Kidlington Old Boys.

Wez Lewis fired Sports ahead following a one-two with Sam Donaldson. And it was 2-0 when Lee Blossom headed in a pinpoint corner from Danny Green.

In the second half, Lewis set up Adam Hodgson for No 3.

Donaldson then crashed home a long-range effort, with Lee Thomas completing the rout late on.

Jack Meeks bagged a brace on his Bardwell debut as his new side thrashed Long Crendon 10-2.

It started well for Crendon with Cameron Anderson's firing them in front.

After Mark Wickens levelled, Peter Allison crashed home the first of his four-timer.

Allison then set up Paul Eldridge, with Wayne Bosher making it 4-1 from half-way after seeing Crendon keeper Joe Farrell off his line.

Allison then hit a second. After the break, Paul Anderson netted No 6 before Allison scored another two.

John Smith then clawed one back, before Meeks's netted a double.

In Division 2A, Rob Alexander hit a hat-trick as Launton Res thrashed Fritwell Res 5-0.

Steve Kerry and Mark Robins got their others.


Division 2A: Eynsham Res 3 (S Tarr 3), OUP Res 2 ( N Aselford, P McNultiys); Launton Res 5 (R Alexander 3, S Kerry, M Robins), Fritwell Res 0; Garsington Res 0, Bardwell Res 2 (S Tuohy, C Pickup); Chadlington Res 4 (J Cleevely 2, P Tanner 2), Berinsfield Res 0.

'Aged-care funding increases passed on'

by Nicola Brennan

Tuesday, 10 October, 2006

CLAIMS by National that District Health Boards have been slow to pass on aged-care funding increases have been slammed by Tairawhiti District Health.

National's associate health spokeswoman Jo Goodhew said last week that residential-care providers and organisations providing home-based support services were finding it difficult to retain and recruit staff, with part of the reason being that district health boards (DHBs) had been slow in passing on funding increases to providers.

Tairawhiti District Health (TDH) chief executive Jim Green said that was absolutely not the case for his DHB.

Mr Green said TDH had passed on all the additional funding for aged care residential services and home support services that had been received, with funds for additional training for care givers being completed.

Ms Goodhew's comments follow a series of National's stakeholder forums on aged care last week.

The clear message coming out of the forums was that there was a desperate need for improved respite-care services nationwide, she said.

Tairawhiti Age Concern manager Frances Toroa agreed that an improvement was needed to ensure that families taking care of the elderly did not become isolated.

"Respite care is needed to take the pressure off family when caring full-time for the elderly," she said.

"Abuse of the elderly is often stress- related and if families become isolated and withdraw, the problems will escalate."

There were often barriers to accessing respite care service because the elderly did not want to go out of the family confine or have a stranger in their house, she said.

However, TDH primary and community portfolio manager Virgina Brind said she was surprised at Ms Goodhew's statements.

Ms Brind understood that there were vacancies in respite care services in most areas of the country, apart from Tairawhiti and Taupo.

There was difficulty accessing respite care in Tairawhiti aged care facilities because, historically, the region had fewer aged care beds per capita.

"Consequently these have been and are used for permanent occupancy rather than respite," Ms Brind said.

"However, Chelsea Hospital offers respite care as well, though this is mainly for those who do not require dementia or hospital-level care."

Respite care could also be provided in the client's own home, with caregivers accessing three home-based support services in the city.

While it was true that primary caregivers frequently required time out when caring for the elderly, it was also true that they were often reluctant to accept or use allocated respite care because of a range of feelings, Ms Brind said.

Reasons included not wanting to leave the client with anyone else, with many feeling that using an aged care facility for respite was just half an inch away from permanent placement in an aged care facility.

Ms Brind said an ageing population was going to make respite care an even bigger issue in the future.

"I believe it will be more essential to consider other or more options of delivering respite care to people in their own homes, rather than an aged care facility."

Leopards claim their first points

11 October 2006


PANSHANGER Yellows U10 Leopards claimed their first points of the season with a 6-2 win against Bury Rangers on Saturday.

Terri Harvey opened the scoring with a well-taken corner before Bury pulled one back to even the score at half-time.

A tactical change in the second half saw the Leopards take command of the game with a second goal for Harvey, two for substitute Sam Clifton and a goal apiece for Billy Kentsley and Jonathan Brind.

With the Yellows defence pushing forward, Rangers made the most of the chance and put another goal past charging keeper Tony Braine.

Defender Reece Maggs took the man of the match award ahead of midfielder Billy Zienkowicz.

Football: Brind out for rest of season

Danny Brind, back in action for Long Melford after a three-season absence, suffered a broken right leg in Tuesday night's Ridgeons League first division KO Cup preliminary round derby at Cornard United.

Brind, injured in a challenge with Matt Cutmore, was taken to West Suffolk Hospital, where his fractured tibia and fibula were operated on yesterday afternoon. He is almost certain to miss the rest of the season.

He had missed the last three seasons with a serious knee injury, and Tuesday night's game was only his seventh – three as substitute – since starting his comeback with the Stoneylands club this season.

On Saturday he was outstanding in a Melford team beaten 2-1 by Walsham-le-Willows in the Suffolk Senior Cup, scoring a goal, clearing a shot off the line, being involved in penalty decisions at both ends, and looked set for a good season.

Melford vice-chairman Simon Garden, who was at Tuesday's game, said: "We are all totally gutted and upset by this.

Danny was head and shoulders above everybody on Saturday. We just wish him a speedy recovery." October 12, 2006

Sabres rattled by on-song Leopards


PANSHANGER Yellows Leopards Under-10s continued their good form with another three points on Saturday (October 28) by beating Bengeo Sabres 7-2.

They got off to a fantastic start with Terri Harvey scoring in the first minute after some great work on the left.

The first half was all Leopards with Terri getting her hat-trick by half-time and Billy Kentsley continuing his fantastic record of scoring in every game he has played in by adding another two to make it 5-0. At the back, Tom West was again imperious and it seemed like nothing was going to get past him.

The second half was much closer and the Sabres surged forward and looked far more dangerous.

However, even a plucky comeback wasn't enough and further goals from Terri, her fourth of the match, and a great strike from Jonathan Brind saw the game finish 7-2.

Boys soccer roundup

Rhinebeck knocks off Tuxedo

TUXEDO- When Ryan Cunningham went down with a broken leg in Tuesday's first half, the fifth-seeded boys soccer team from Rhinebeck High School used the injury as motivation to upset top-seeded Tuxedo in the Section Nine, Class C semifinals.

"The team kind of decided at halftime, as we talked that they were ready to rally around Ryan," Rhinebeck coach Justin Wiesenthal said. "The team was ready to give their all for him."

And the Hawks did.

Scoring a pair of goals after halftime, Rhinebeck won, 2-1, to advance in the postseason.

Tom McCormack scored the game-winning goal on a penalty kick with just over six minutes remaining in regulation.

The teams had been scoreless until 2 minutes, 37 seconds into the second half, when Taylor Camp netted a ball from Rowan Brind to give the Hawks the lead.

Tuxedo's Frankie Mackey tied it, 1-1, at the 14-minute mark. Winning goalie Ben Hoynes, an eighth-grader, made 11 saves; P.J. Ostrowski collected eight saves for losing Tuxedo, which outshot Rhinebeck, 11-8.

"I've coached them all season long, and I think it's really starting to stick with them. It's all about heart," Wiesenthal said. "This team- the last two games in the sectionals, both one-goal victories- are playing with 100 percent heart."

Rhinebeck plays Millbrook at the Hudson Valley Sportsdome on Thursday at 6 p.m. in the sectional final.

Mrs Hewitt: Please listen to us

By staff reporter

Backing our campaign: A group from St James' Church, Downley appeals to the Health Secretary

THE Bucks Free Press today lists the names of 2,000 readers who have protested against the possible loss of Wycombe Hospital's accident and emergency unit.

The reader response to the Don't Do It Hewitt appeal is possibly the largest-ever received to a postal campaign in the history of our newspapers. And even more readers than the ones listed here joined our campaign by sending in petitions.

Bucks Free Press editor Steve Cohen, writing in his column in the Star a few weeks ago, asked readers to cut out coupons urging Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt to block any future plans for the transfer of the unit away from High Wycombe.

"I was simply staggered by the take-up to this campaign," he said. "In these days of the internet, it's surprising to see so many people take the trouble to cut out a form in a local paper and post it for no other reason than a genuine concern for the well-being of the community."

The campaign was launched when Buckinghamshire Hospitals NHS Trust said it could not guarantee the future of A & E after officials admitted more changes could be forced upon them in the future by the Department of Health.

There are no plans at present, but campaigners fear A & E could go the same way as the hospital's women's and children's units which are being transferred to Stoke Mandeville, Aylesbury.

Stuart McFadyen, from the Department of Health, said any changes would need to go through a public consultation before the Health Secretary could be involved. "Any changes are a long way off," he said.

Soccer: Teams have chance to set the record straight

By Terry Maddaford

Today's battle of the south means different things to different people as clubs continue to jockey for a run at the New Zealand Football Championship play-offs.

For Canterbury United coach Danny Halligan, it is the chance to continue their much-needed return to something like the form which took them all the way to last season's grand final; for his Otago United counterpart Terry Phelan, the trip north is an opportunity to halt a disastrous slide.

With three wins in a row behind them, Halligan is confident of a fourth, especially as he can call on one of the more potent strike forces in the competition.

Brent Fisher opened his account last weekend. He joins Henry Faarodo and Stuart Kelly and Blair Scoullar in what appears a potent quartet. It will, however, be Faarodo's last outing for the Reds before returning to Melbourne.

Still struggling to cope with injuries to eight players, Phelan has stuck with the players who were well-beaten by YoungHeart Manawatu last time out. They do have one ace up their sleeve - they beat Canterbury 2-1 at home earlier in the season.

Team Wellington, at home to Waikato FC, have Graham Little back to provide the spark that was missing in their 1-0 loss to Waitakere on Sunday. That, and the tightness of their games this season, suggests Mick Waitt's team could make it two over their northern rivals this season after their thumping 5-0 win in round four.

Roger Wilkinson has had little time with Waikato and might be expecting too much to get up for their still much-awaited first win of the season. He has promoted Paul Caton and David Samson to the starting line-up, with Brent Mayhew and Mark Brind dropping to the bench.

With the chance to close to within a point of leaders Waitakere United, who have to wait until Wednesday night to go head-to-head with cross-town rivals Auckland City, Manawatu will not want any hiccups in their home battle with neighbours Hawkes Bay United.

Coach Shane Rufer will be mindful that his YoungHeart side dropped points in a 1-1 draw in October but the Bay have done little since. He will have happier memories of round 16 last term when Benjamin Totori, already it seems assured of this season's golden boot, banged home five in an 8-1 romp over the Bay, the largest winning margin in three NZFC seasons.

Former All White striker Mark Elrick will be on the Hawkes Bay bench.

Ice rink hailed as success

By Reporter,

Summer ice rink could be on the cards after Christmas showpiece gets the thumbs up

SHOPPERS, traders and skaters alike have hailed Newbury's first town centre ice rink as a great success.

The synthetic ice rink, which was in the Market Place during the five days before Christmas, was the first chance to make use of the newly restored Market Place and ran alongside the market.

West Berkshire councillor responsible for the town centre Emma Webster said: "I was only at the rink for a few days but when I was there it seemed very popular, it was always very busy.

"It certainly went down well with the young people.

"I didn't have a go because I was there to help out with making sure people were safe.

"It's certainly something we would like to do again, so we will discuss it with the retailers and see whether people want it again.

"We still have donations coming in so are not sure yet how much money the ice rink made in total."

Newbury market manager Steve Brind said: "The market in the run up to Christmas was fine.

The skating rink made it a good success. I was too busy to even have a go on it.

"It brought more people into the market and definitely helped us."

"I want them to have another ice rink in the summer and maybe have it as a disco as well."
