Waitati's Mushroom magazine makes it big uptown

An Auckland duo's presentation in a K-Road gallery has celebrated "the
energies and efforts" of 'Mushroom' magazine, an alternative lifestyle
publication spawned in Waitati in 1974.

Louise Menzies and Warren Olds, at Artspace, 300 Karangahape Rd
"articulate the closeness and the distance of the optimism of the
recent past" in their work on a poster collaged from many issues of
'Mushroom', including instructions on mulching, advertisements for
dowsing rods and bio-rhythm calendars:

http://www.clouds.co.nz/distribution/mushroom-poster/

'Mushroom', an "alternative living magazine" published in Waitati, New
Zealand from
1974-85 was a self-published, non-profit, non-professional activity of
like-minded
people. As their opening editorial stated, "Call it subsistence
publishing if you like. We want to cover: Communes and Communities;
The Ohu Scheme; Homesteading; Rural Technology; Alternative
Schooling; Natural Foods; Organic gardening and farming; Crafts;
Survival in Cities; Personal Awareness..."

Fluoridation Action Group (column)

As we await our new water supply, we also await the answers to the
questions regarding fluoridation asked in March.

The DCC's Water management has put forward a recommendation that
councilors and all community board members be briefed by the Ministry
of Health and Public Health South about the perceived benefits of
artificial fluoridation. The Waikouaiti Coast Community Board endorsed
the idea of a presentation to council and all community boards from
both fluoridation promotors and opponents.

I was pleased to see our community board had the common sense to
recommend that this briefing be amended to include both sides of the
fluoride argument.

As a result, there will be a presentation to elected officials to
address questions raised earlier this year by members of our
community.

This presentation is not open to the public or the media. People
interested in obtaining answers to the questions will need to read
over the minutes of the meeting, if these minutes are going to be
publicly available, which I have not confirmed yet.

I personally find it rather strange that questions asked by the public
will be answered behind closed doors to elected officials, but then I
never have understood politics!

For more information, to join or more regular update database, or to
have questions about artificial fluoridation answered, please email
nomassmedication @ gmail.com or phone 0276677857.

OROKONUI ECOSANCTUARY TE KOROWAI O MIHIWAKA

Pa Harakeke comes to Orokonui

The Dunedin Botanic Garden's Roy Orchiston Collection of 108 varieties
of Harakeke flax is on the move. This is due to the proposed road
realignment works on Lovelock Ave. The Orokonui Ecosanctuary has made
land available on the corner of Mopanui and Blueskin Roads for three
plants of each Harakeke variety. As the flaxes mature they will
provide many different qualities of material for interested weavers.
They will also provide a decorative edging for Te Korowai o Mihiwaka.

Kati Huirapa (the runanga based in Karitane) have drawn up a graceful
double-koru pathway around which the Harakeke will be planted. In late
August the project on the ground kicked off with Matt Ellison (iwi)
delivering a karakia followed by the Conservation Corps (directed by
David Mules from DOC) cutting through the broom and laying out the
beginnings of the pathway. A volunteer work day will be held during
Conservation Week. Come to 600 Blueskin Rd on Sunday 7th Sept at 10am
to support this work.

The report from the Kiwi Recovery group who visited last month to
check out food resources for Kiwi was positive. They were especially
excited about the number of large earthworms found in various
habitats. Current thinking is that Orokonui may act as a kohanga for
the Haast Tokoeka species of kiwi. This means that Orokonui-bred Kiwi,
once large enough to defend themselves from stoats and dogs, could be
taken back to their Haast home to boost the fragile population there.

The last pest monitoring detected one mouse which is being dealt with
along with a small number of remaining hares. These last few canny
pests will be enjoying life without predation too and despite being
very few in number would build up astronomically and create big
problems if left. It is still hoped that the Ecosanctuary will be pest
free in October and that limited opening will occur at that time.

For further information on the Ecosanctuary, visit www.orokonui.org.nz
or see our box at the Blueskin Bay Library.

Warrington Indoor Bowls

Things have been very busy with Eastern District Events and local events.

The Eastern District Open Singles was won by our own Andrew Thompson
with Stephne Bennett second and Cliff Porteous and Daniel Mosley third
equal. Yes, the other clubs were well represented but it was nice to
see so many of our own players qualify.

The quadrangular was held this year in Waimate. Oamaru came first with
Eastern Districts second, Waimate third and Upper Waitaki last. The
rose bowl between Eastern Districts and Upper Waitaki was retained by
Eastern Districts.

In a busy weekend of indoor bowls, Andrew and Daniel played at the
Burnside Pairs Friday night, and the Champion of Champion Fours was
won by Dunback on Saturday and Andrew, Stephne and Alan Morrish played
in the Brockville Triples on Sunday.

Last year Eastern District management team went to town and beat them.
This year Town came to Karitane with only one thing on their mind and
I have to say the trophy, (now mended and polished) went back to town
quite convincingly.

This weekend Cliff and Ruth Porteous are going to play in the men's
and women's respectively, Champion of Champion Singles and we wish
them both luck.

This leaves the Champion of Champion Pairs and the Dunback Open Fours
to be played to finish the month of August. September sees the finish
of the seasons, with Eastern Districts closing on the 13th and
Warrington on the 20th.

We will have the final results from Interclub in the next newsletter.

We acknowledge the passing of Doris Whyte, mother, mother-in-law,
grandmother of some of our past and present members.

Any enquires about bowls please contact Stephne Bennett 4822584.

Waitati Energy Project

PHOTO: Bill Currie, one of the Powerhouse Wind team,
demonstrating to Derek Onley how the single blade turbine works at
thge Waitati Energy Expo last month.

Te Energy Expo on Sunday 10 August was a resounding success: that's
the consensus of organisers, participants and from comments received.
One of the ways I personally experienced the success of the day was
when I went to buy some lunch (cheerfully provided by the Waitati PTA)
at around 3 o'clock, only to discover it had long run out. Luckily
however there was plenty of hand-made ice-cream being churned out so I
didn't go hungry.

The format of the day, with speakers, exhibitors (local and
commercial) and activities seemed to work well. Niki Bould of Port
Chalmers won by popular choice the Energy Efficiency and Innovation
Competion with her draught stopper (the prize of organic meat and
super-size fresh vegetables was donated by local WEGgies Dennis and
Tracy Kyle). Adults and children alike kept an eye on the Olympics (as
long as someone was pedalling Nathan Clarke's bike-generated TV –
thanks Meiling and Nils), while others made bags and draught stoppers
(thanks Niki and Jenna), visited the various stalls, sampled
Malgosia's ice-cream, listened to speakers, quizzed Bill Currie about
Powerhouse Wind's single blade turbine, trialled an electric bike, or
just soaked it all up.

Thanks to all our speakers (Chris Perley, Neville Auten, Mike
Goldsmith, Sean Connaughton, and Maureen Howard); all the exhibitors
(Powerhouse Wind, Browns Bikes, Yunka Fires, Burford Tanks, Otago
Insulation, Placemakers, Power Options, the Solar Shop, Centameter,
Hybrid House, Whare Mahana, Jens and Adrienne Rekker, Waitati Edible
Gardens, W3 Rideshare, Orokonui Ecosanctuary, DCC, and the Green
Party); our MCs' (Nick Prosser and Anisha Hensley); the Waitati
Militia; the Waitati PTA. Thank you to all those from Waitati to
Warrington who put in such an effort to
organise/set-out/welcome/clean-up/unpack and pack, etc. Please forgive
any omissions.

Alas, the electric car didn't make it to Waitati (something to do with
the extreme cold and the inability to rapidly recharge the battery),
so that will have to be for another day, and our Otago Energy Research
Centre (OERC) speakers couldn't make it either but the day was very
full as it was.

What is coming up? The next thing Waitatians will notice will be a
household energy survey arriving in the mail from the OERC. You may
have spoken with Martha Bell (who is coordinating the survey) at the
Expo about the survey. If we can get a really good response to the
survey it will be a great source of information for the Waitati Energy
Project and initiatives we undertake. It will help us focus our energy
and will also help us secure funds for targeted projects, so please
look out for it, and please complete it and return it.

Finally, some corrections: we received great coverage in the ODT on
the Friday just prior to the Expo, but some of the photos were
incorrectly labelled: the image of insulation being installed in a
roof is not at Mark and Rayna Dickson's place, but is Whare Mahana
installing Novatherm in Rhys Owen's house in Warrington (Rhys won the
Warm Homes Info Evening Prize of a roof-lot of ceiling insulation from
Novatherm, and installation from Whare Mahana). I was pictured in
front of Jenny MacDonald's turbine which was installed by Ian Buchan
of Power Options: this is not the turbine that will power Waitati and
nor is it Powerhouse Wind's single blade turbine, and I was just a
prop! However the publicity was excellent and certainly contributed to
our very successful day.

If you want to receive more detailed updates or be involved in the
Waitati Energy Project please contact me to join the WEP list by

Many hands make heat work in Warrington

Rhys Owen, winner of the supply and installation of a roof-lot of
insulation is now enjoying a warmer home.

"The final result is great, the house is noticeably warmer", said
Rhys, adding that he was "really chuffed with the result".

Bruce Ritchie of Whare Mahana, hadn't been too optimistic about
finding a gap in the rain, but as Rhys put it afterwards, "The sun
gods shone and the rain held off." They managed to find a brief
respite in the weather on 28 July.

There was some preparation, with a section of the roof to be removed,
and Warrington resident Mike Fitzgerald provided much needed help,
advice and great workmanship: "I would still be on the roof now if it
weren't for his help" Rhys said, while the Whare Mahana team "were
good to work with, professional, efficient and tidy".

Milton manufacturer Novatherm donated the polyester fibre insulation,
which Rhys won at a Waitati Energy Project 'Warm Homes' energy info
evening at Waitati in June.

Waitati haul leads to security upgrade

The theft of an unopened case of white wine from the Waitati Hall has
left the Waitati School PTA seriously out of pocket and sparked a
major security upgrade.

"We hope to remedy the situation with a very loud alarm and several
deadbolts on doors and windows," Mandy maymem of the Hall Committee
told 'Blueskin News'. "Its a shame that a few bad antics can spoil it
for everyone else."

The burgulary, after the clean-up on the Sunday following the PTA's
'Bit of a Do', follows a number of incidents recently at the Hall
involving vandalism and general mischief, Mandy said.

"We believe some young people have been gaining entry to the Hall by
unlocking doors during public functions or while the Library is open.
We remind all Hall users to check every exit is secure after their
event."

The Hall Committee are determined to catch the culprits and would like
any information to be passed on to the Port Chalmers Police, and for
people to call 111 if they see any suspicious activity.

BLUESKIN PLAYCENTRE

Even though it rained for the first three weeks of term we have had
plenty of space to exert ourselves. Our Olympic Games didn't need to
be postponed as we were able to hold it inside. The children created
their own flags and medals to be given out ceremoniously after sack
races, beam walking and much more.

Our focus this term for group play has been to extend the children's
interest in fantasy play and communication through text in the written
and story form. Some of our children visited the Fortune Theatre in
the holidays to see 'The Princess and the Pea', this has stimulated
their fantasy play, often setting the theme of Kings and Queens,
Princes and Princesses with a wedding.

The children have been bringing their favourite stories and
identifying familiar text as well as retelling the story. Our four
year olds have been practicing their hand writing and making their own
books.

We have been very happy to welcome some new families recently, all
with children under two years old.

Our centre provides for children 0-5 years and we would love to have
more families join us.

If you'd like to find out more please come and visit us on Orokonui
Rd, Waitati (follow the sign off Harvey St) Monday, Wednesday or
Thursday 9.30 - 12.30. Our centre phone number is 027 427 1727. Or
call Mandy outside these hours on 482 2752.

OPINION: on yer bike

It's not "Boobs on Bikes" but "Bikes on Beaches" that are making some
Warrington people really mad at the moment.

For many people the beach is a major asset, which offers a wide range
of recreational activities from a gentle stroll to more adventurous
pursuits like surfing or horse riding. For most people it provides a
place to relax away from the demands of work or household chores, a
wide expanse of sand and the lap and curl of the tide soon help you to
unwind. There is always something new to look at, an amazing cloud
formation, interesting flotsam and jetsam, or a sandcastle decorated
with drift wood and shells. It's a great place for kids and dogs, both
can be "let off the leash" with out the worry of traffic and all that
running around in the fresh salt air seems to wear them out nicely and
put them in a good humour. It's sometimes very empty and a person can
have the luxury of having the whole beach to them self and their
thoughts. At other times it can be a wonderfully social place where
you run into neighbours and have a good catch up. There can be crowds
on a sunny summer day enjoying the surf "between the flags" or just
lying on the sand soaking up the warmth of the sun.

Watching the various creatures both great and small can provide
enormous pleasure and learning opportunities for children and adults.
Crabs, sea birds, shellfish, sea lions, sand hoppers, rabbits, and of
course our favorites the elusive dolphins, can be observed, chased,
picked up, counted, tiptoed round or admired. The sea also provides
food, our beach and bay are a rich source of Kai Moana, and many
people enthusiastically venture out with a bucket, net or rod, often
in family groups, hoping to bring back a feed for tea. The beach is
the venue for family picnics, works Christmas parties, school
education trips, outings for seniors, walking groups, Outdoor Ed
classes and Surf Club competitions.

Unfortunately there is a small group of people who see the beach as a
perfect racetrack, long and flat and ideal for speeding along on their
motorbike or 4-wheel drive. Others view the sand dunes as an obstacle
course for their quad bike, delightfully hilly with enough vegetation
to make it a bit of challenge. What mean person would grudge them this
pleasure; there is plenty of beach?

The problem is speeding bikes and 4WDs are noisy and make walking on
the beach less than relaxing for parents and dog owners. The quads and
bikes cause huge destruction to the delicate structure of the sand
dunes and essential plant cover. And possibly worst of all is theor
effect on the locals: they scare off the resting sea lions, destroy
the nests of Black Oystercatchers, and disrupt hundreds of high tide,
resting seabirds such as Godwits, Gulls, Shags, Stilts, and Pied
Oystercatchers.

There is lots of beach and most of the time we share it amicably,
respecting other people and the wild things that live there. There are
few rules and that's a very good thing but maybe we have to choose, as
a community, that we would like the beach to be vehicle free, except
for boat launching and Surf Club activities.

I'd like to see other recreational areas made available for motorbikes
and quads, somewhere less sensitive where they can enjoy their sport.
Bikes and cars on the beach are not compatible with what the majority
of people want: peace and relaxation. For the long term protection of
the natural environment and peace of mind for beach walkers it's time
we drew a line in the sand and asked the bikes and 4WDs to stay away.

New East Otago childcare service has space

Playcentre child educators have a new initiative for their tiniest
clients starting up called 'Space'.

The service will provide childcare and education for up to 15 babies
aged under six months, and will be located in Palmerston, Playcentre
child educator Christine Rainbow told 'Blueskin News'. The service in
Palmerston will be this area's only one of its type, with others in St
Leonards, Mornington and Oamaru, she said.

Christine, who lives in Warrington, will travel to Palmerston for each
session and hopes be able to organise ridesharing for parents and
their babies.

WARRINGTON SURF LIFE SAVING CLUB

The building work is all done. We are all very impressed with our
lovely new kitchen and toilet area. Fundraising will never seem the
same with such a beautiful outlook while catering and doing dishes.
Sadly money did not stretch to our new Kitchen which is bare and needs
lots of items. Do you know anyone who has a fridge,oven,microwave,
zip, etc etc? You may know a business selling up or changing
equipment. Contact Kaye 482 2494 or Christine 482 2005.

Jandal Day Friday 5 December. Put a circle around this date in your
diary. It was a great fundraiser last year. You and your workmates can
nominate where your monies go to, for example you can run a raffle or
dress up at your school or workplace and the money can be designated
for Warrington. Ideas are welcome.

We have some fun ideas for things to do and hope lots of you who are
12ish and over will come along. Find out what's involved in being a
guard or patrol support person, have fun in the IRB, on a board, meet
up with locals, eat and generally make the most of what Warrington
Club has to offer you and your mates.

Surf Life Saving Otago (that's our regional body) , is celebrated 75
years in August – a wonderful achievement for a great organisation.
This is the build up before the 'big one' – yes, surf life saving in
New Zealand will celebrate 100 years in 2010.

Thankyou to those who continue behind the scenes, Pru with the funding
issues, Polly paying the bills, Cherie - the greatest swim coach, Kaye
and Lyn and Pru the meeting attendees in town and Murray who has spent
lots of time raking and shovelling gravel around the building. Michael
has visited the swimming lessons with boards for sessions in warm and
waveless conditions.

Our Annual General Meeting on Friday 29th August will have just
happened as you read this. It may not be summer but it is still busy
at Warrington Surf Club. Keep warm and enjoy the fresh winter air.

WARRINGTON RESERVE GROUP

The cold rainy weather has been great for our plants at Warrington
Domain, keeping them moist.Thanks to everyone who helped with the
fencing and planting. Special thanks go to a community work party from
the Department of Corrections, who have helped with ongoing
maintenance, put mulch around plants, dug out weeds, and done ground
preparation for rabbit-proof fencing. There will be ongoing work to
keep the weeds down, as well as installing gates and finishing the
other part of the fence, ready for our next winter planting in 2009.
Enjoy watching the plants grow!

A big thanks to Trish and Annette, and the fourteen industrious kids
from Warrington School, who attacked the last planting for this season
with such gusto that there was time for a session at the playground
before heading back to school.

Keep Dunedin Beautiful is having a clean up day, as part of Clean Up
NZ Week, and Warrington Reserve Group wanted to give our community an
opportunity to participate. Come join us at 10:00AM SATURDAY 6
SEPTEMBER at the playground on Warrington Domain, opposite the Surf
Club. We will be giving out rubbish bags and gloves. Bring the kids,
and have a walk at your own pace on the beach, bay or domain, and
clean up as you go. Phone Nancy Higgins 4821198 if you want more
information.

Any other queries phone Karen Hobday 4822762

W3 RIDE SHARE

We now have over 70 people registered on the ride share – mainly from
Waitati but some from Warrington, Waikouaiti, Karitane and Merton.

I've been using the scheme to get to and from work and it has all gone
really well. In the morning I've always been picked up by a ride share
member within 10 minutes and on the way home I wait at NZ Blood and
there is a similar wait to get a lift.

I think a lot of members who park in town may hit the one-way north of
NZ Blood. Because the NZ Blood pick-up is the closest to the CBD this
is likely to be the most frequented spot for those wanting a lift. So
– if you can break the routine – we really need to make an effort to
pass NZ Blood!

If you don't see anyone waiting then it may be that we've already got a lift.

Just wanted to say thanks to Mark and Claire Brown for putting the
bike-stand behind the hedge at the nursery entrance, Alasdair Morrison
for getting us a very flash bike stand and thanks to George Terry for
the metal.

Also 'Library Louise' has done (and continues to do) heaps of work
keeping the database up-to-date and handing out IDs. Both car and
people IDs are now ready for members to pick up from the Blueskin
Library.

The following W3 Ride Share information is a summary of what people
put on their Registration Form.

I hope it reassures some of you that you can get to and from Dunedin.
Save money and reduce your carbon footprint. Get out of your car – it
works! Happy travelling.
