Couple forced to leave New Zealand Town

Posted by te2ataria on December 31, 2010

Showdown in Kaikoura: “There’s a lot of viciousness.”

Couple in their 50s violently assaulted by locals and forced to leave town

The couple who moved to New Zealand some years ago say they were treated like new emigrants. They were viciously assaulted and threatened to leave Kaikoura.

A couple in their 50s have put their Kaikoura home on the market and moved to Christchurch after a violent assault and an anonymous note warning them to “get out”.

Paula Irvine-Boag talked yesterday about her experiences in the town after reading about two recent street assaults.

Ms Irvine-Boag, 54, and her partner, Tony Neumann, 53, moved to Kaikoura in 2008.

However, they said they soon encountered hostility from some born-and-bred residents who treated them as outsiders.

Ms Irvine-Boag said their neighbour refused to speak to them, while pavement signs for her business were repeatedly moved.

“You can be there 40 or 50 years and you’re still not accepted,” she said.

“There’s a lot of viciousness.”

The final straw was a violent attack that left her partner needing stitches to his mouth and lip.

[…] After what felt like a long, “very cold” winter, the couple put their house on the market and moved to Christchurch, vowing they would “never return to live in Kaikoura”.  More …

“Meanwhile, the mother of a man and woman who were in a group of six assaulted in Kaikoura early on Monday said the family’s Christmas had been ruined.”

“That one night has changed our whole family,” she said.

“My son has been beaten so bad. Who is going to pay his bills when he is lying around because he cannot work? He cannot eat, he cannot play with his daughter.”

The woman, whose family did not want to be identified for fear of retaliation, said she had not slept much since learning of the attack.

Sewage City’s Faecal Beach Closed, Again!

Posted by te2ataria on February 6, 2010

“Don’t shit where you eat” – Billie Goatspeare

Translation for the uninitiated:

Wellington’s Owhiro Bay beach closed due to sewage contamination, AGAIN!

What is it that our friends at Wellington City Council find so difficult to understand?

When you dump untreated [or partially treated] faeces of 400,000 people into the local bay, the beaches are bound to be contaminated with faecal matter.

Owhiro Bay beach water was found to be contaminated with enterococci at high levels likely to cause a health hazard [read: likely to kill fish,] Wellington City Council said.

The most common types of enterococci, like the species infesting most of New Zealand’s coastal waters, come from human intestines.

The warning was the second in NINE DAYS that the level of faecal contaminants were likely to cause serious health hazards.

Wellington council has again urged people to stay clear of the water in the area until the fish consume the enterococci in the water.

“Ingesting the contaminated water could cause diarrhoea, stomach cramps and vomiting, along with infection to cuts and skin lesions.” A report said.

According to the “Wellington Council Infrastructure Director,” Stavros Michael, the source of the contamination was not obvious.

Pathology:
Important clinical infections caused by Enterococcus include urinary tract infections, bacteremia, bacterial endocarditis, diverticulitis, and meningitis.
