The New Zealand Business Excellence Awards are the only national awards fully aligned to the internationally-respected US Baldrige criteria — just five gold awards have been presented in New Zealand in the last 15 years.
Administered by the New Zealand Business Excellence Foundation, they are based on international criteria using a rigorous four-step assessment process. In , the Western Bay council. Western Bay Mayor Ross Paterson says the award is testimony to the style of management developed by the council under a strong team approach.
We need a culture of continuous improvement within the local government sector. This requires councils to benchmark themselves against others, to compare and contrast, to identify excellence and to replicate it. Over the last six years most of the project team have been involved in evaluating organisations around New Zealand that are working toward business excellence.

The information released yearly revealed a baby born at either Tauranga or Whakatane Hospital died at birth after failure to identify the infant was in breach position. In October last year yearold Sonia was at home while Craig worked away in Mongolia. She began experiencing bleeding.
Scared she called her midwife who Craig says told her it was normal and to stay home and. Photo by Tracy Hardy. Six hours later she went to the toilet and her waters broke. It was 2am when she got into the ambulance and they had to stop for diesel on the way.
It took her a long time to come right, and I think blokes are a bit different. We bottle it up, because your wife is falling apart and you have to be strong for her. The couple, who have been married for two years, believe the hardest part has been the lack of feedback and information offered by hospital staff. Why did this happen? We struggled to get an appointment with the hospital. Seven weeks later we learned there was no reason known for Sonia to go into early labour.
For Craig, he would love to see a support network for men and welcomes men to call him if they need By Corrie Taylor support on The idea of transforming the Mount North commercial centre, by redeveloping the carpark, was first put to Tauranga City Council in August. Resident and developer Bain McDonald with architect Graham Price presented the council with an attractive alternative.
Given the existence of a fund to provide mitigation through open spaces, it seems entirely logical for the reserves arm of TCC to acquire the Phoenix carpark from the transport section, says Bain. The first thing to happen is expected to be a community engagement process during summer months, similar to the successful public engagement undertaken last summer for the Coastal Reserves Policy.
It could involve a display on the site, and within the Mainstreet area, to generate feedback during the busy By Andrew Campbell Christmas holiday months. Racing for Harrison In a dawn run with a twist, runners of all shapes and sizes will dash up Mauao next week to raise funds for the Papamoa family of a year old boy who is battling a rare form of cancer.

The Toyota Altezza was travelling along Fraser Street near 11th Avenue when it crashed into a fence, becoming wedged on the grass verge near Memorial Park. No one was injured in the crash. Scientists are scratching their heads trying to find the source of a mysterious tidal surge that struck Papamoa Beach early Saturday knocking down fishermen and bringing in lines. Fisherman Grahame Lindsey was out fishing the bottom of the tide at Karewa Parade during low tide at 5.
The tide came in and it stayed in for three or four minutes, then it just drained straight out like a huge vacuum cleaner. It was quite substantial. A nine-year-old boy is in critical condition in Starship Hospital with head injuries after crashing into the side of a house in Welcome Bay. The boy was riding his bike in Te Arawa Place when he went down a steep hill and crashed at about 4. A Tauranga St John spokesperson says the boy suffered head injuries and was taken to Tauranga Hospital before a specialist retrieval team from Auckland was sent down to fly the boy to Starship Hospital.

Cyclists and walkers told to share Different users of the Harbour Drive footpath are just going to have to learn to get along, Tauranga City councillors have decided this week. The sharing is a two stage process. First, the bylaw will be changed; and then the footpath will be widened to three metres.
Because the council says it is a footpath, cyclists are legally required to keep to the road. By Andrew Campbell. Four Bay of Plenty surf schools will join others throughout the country this weekend in a drive to raise funds for disabled surfers.

Hot rod lovers Sarah and John Ellis were so impressed seeing hundreds of classic cars take part in the annual Auckland Christmas toy run — and decided 10 years ago to hold a similar event here.
Cars will drive from Baypark to Papamoa, along the beachfront to Mauao, before driving back through downtown Tauranga to finish at Fraser Cove, where cars will be displayed from 7. The run will go ahead no matter what the weather is. Sarah is encouraging people to donate educational toys for children aged up to 13 — like puzzles or games they can do on their own while recovering from treatment — rather than just soft toys.
By Hamish Carter. A group of Otumoetai Intermediate School students are taking Lego building to a whole new level by constructing robots used to investigate natural disasters. Three teams of Year 7 and 8 students are entering their robots into the national First Lego League competition in Auckland on Saturday. Each team has been constructing a 15cm high Lego Mind Storm robot for about 10 weeks, as part of an Incredible Minds accelerant programme at the school.
Otumoetai Intermediate School robotics teacher Kate Rhodes says — along with a bit of fun — the competition teaches students problem solving and mathematics skills. Engineers select different natural disasters to investigate. They then control their robots on the playing field to find an innovative solution, which could help following a natural disaster.

Many teachers go beyond the call of duty — but Pukehina School principal Roger Reid really is a good sort. But rewind to Term 3 last year — when Roger became acting principal and Pukehina School had a dilemma. With a roll dipping to 18 children, Ministry of Education-funded teaching roles reduced from two full-time equivalents to 1. He also solved the lack of a caretaker, by enlisting parent help.
At the end of Term 1 this year, the roll increased to 26, enabling Roger funding to hire his part time teacher full-time. The policy will be publicly notified between January 20 and February 4, If no appeals are made, it will be adopted 30 days later on March 17, The maximum trading hours of 7am to 10pm applies for all off licences, and all on licences, except those in Tauranga City centre, which has stipulated maximum trading hours of 9am to 1am.

With this month marking Movember, Daryn McBride was approached by ZM radio presenter — and good friend — Jay Reeve to design a surf board to raise money for the charity.
Together with Gen Mo campaign images, Daryn has created a unique board to encourage men suffering mental health issues to stand up and ride the waves of life. Surfing professionally in Australia and claiming a couple of national titles along the way, Daryn says surfing has been a significant part of overcoming his mental illness.
Daryn wants to encourage men suffering mental illnesses to get active, stay healthy and express their feelings. The winner will be announced next month. Ripping into the news News-related hijinks and hilarity are set to grip Baycourt Theatre next month as a misfit band of comedians — commonly known as the 7 Days crew — roll into Tauranga for one unrestricted show.
The 7 Days Nationwide Tour sees the popular television game show stripped down to the bare essentials of comedy and outrageous jokes — leaving behind the restrictions of television cameras and censors. Starting in Dunedin on December 7, the group is making their way up the country, making fun of the news, the newsmakers and each other — stopping in Tauranga on December We look to get about a 78 to 80 per cent hijinks rating on TV and we want to get it up to 85 per cent for the live show when we do it.

What does a vibrant city mean? During the local body elections, you would have heard a lot of people talking about creating a vibrant city. But what does it mean? This week, the new council started to translate what we consider a vibrant city to mean in the real world. It aspires to bring people of all ages together. It promotes active lifestyles and improving accessibility for everyone.
On Tuesday, we were presented with petitions both for and against banning cyclists on the beautiful Harbour Drive foreshore at Otumoetai. After listening to both sides, we agreed to change the rules to enable both walking and cycling on the same path. The proposal to sell the Phoenix carpark on Mount Mainstreet to a developer to reduce debt has been stopped.
The urban park would be funded by development contributions that council has already collected. Then there is the taboo subject of alcohol. But alcohol becomes a problem when it is abused. This week we accepted the local alcohol policy, as proposed by the previous council. Any changes would have required starting the long process over again. The Tauranga Art Gallery Trust wants to establish an endowment fund to be more self-sufficient.

The best way to achieve this is to install shutters. Simply tilt the blades to regulate the airflow, light and UV rays coming into your home.
This offers protection for your valuable furnishings from the harsh sun. This adjustability also allows you to control privacy levels by simply adjusting the shutter, so your neighbours cannot see in. During the warmer months, shutters keep the heat out creating a cooler home in summer. Shutters are very effective at helping to reduce heat loss through a window when installed in a tight fitting frame. This helps you save money through lower energy bills while creating a warmer, healthier and more comfortable home for your family during the cooler months.
Shutters are gaining popularity, creating ambience and a modern look in any room, be it your lounge, bedroom, kitchen or bathroom. Interior shutters can be installed inside most existing windows, whether in a new home or one being renovated. Each shutter is custom designed to ensure best fit and to suit the look you.
They can be made to slide, hinge or bi-fold, depending on how you want to use them. Shutters are the ultimate in style and versatility. Any top quality window decor will not only add style to your rooms, but value to your biggest asset — your home. Renovating to add value - it pays to have a plan Comfort, function and ambience — no matter what you want to achieve in a renovation, it always pays to have a good plan.
Before you even talk to a designer or builder consider your reasons for renovating and decide whether the expense and disruption is justified. Whether you are renovating to tidy the home for sale, or improving the property to live in, nobody wants to spend more than they need to on a renova-. Repainting, repapering or changing damaged or dated fixtures, such as a cracked bathroom basin, are relatively inexpensive ways to.
But, whatever you do, you need to keep the colours fairly neutral to appeal to a wide range of buyers. Adding to property value can be trickier to assess when renovating a home you intend.

With Christmas fast approaching, Richard says now is the time to install carpet, vinyl and laminate flooring in the home.

Price is valid for the quantity only, while stocks lasts. Positive attitudes to ageing, and expectations of continuing productivity, challenge the notion of older age as a time of retirement and withdrawal from society. Combating ageism in the health sector is a challenge. Are our hospital and GP surgeries truly age-friendly? When assessing an older patient are issues of loneliness and social isolation considered adequately at time of discharge or as causes.
Is ageist language used? Do premises have suitable access and seating, signage clear and at a suitable height? Why are there no government guidelines for extra charging in residential care? Why is there no requirement for caregivers in home support and residential care to complete nationally recognised training?
This contrasts sharply with the formal qualifications required to look after younger people. ACC is another agency that needs to be vigilant about ageism. Businesses need to provide welcoming and accessible environments for their clients and customers. Older people have extensive experience and skills that can be of great benefit in the workplace. Employers should be looking at ways of tapping into this resource of loyal and hardworking people, yet we hear it is hard for senior work-seekers to get employment.
More flexibility in working hours may be the answer for both parties. Juggling different roles as a carer Q: I am the main caregiver for my mother. I feel like a rubber band ready to snap.

You need to take care of yourself. You have not mentioned how you have time out, though I imagine you do not. You need to start looking to others for support. If family or friends are not available to share the load,. Has your mother been assessed by Support Net to ascertain if she is entitled to some support?
If not, please do this. If you do not have a network of additional support you might need to look at enlisting the help of a private agency. The truth is if you do not take regular breaks, you risk tipping over and being very unwell yourself. Just a small amount of personal time, to exercise or meditate, can be hugely restorative.
Meet a friend for a coffee, and enlist others to help you in the support of your mother. The first step is letting others truly know how you feel. For more information, refer to our website: www.

Dr Anna Rolleston. Most supplements use Japanese knotweed as the main source. The best supplements use extracts which concentrate levels of resveratrol to as high as 50 per cent pure trans-resveratrol. Experiments on insects and worms shows resveratrol increases their lifespan by more than 25 per cent, thus showing promise to help prevent premature aging. Resveratrol can help build our resistance against invading germs by making vitamin D more.
I invariably include some resveratrol in programmes for people with low immunity, including autoimmune problems and those who have had past brushes with cancers. Resveratrol also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, making it a beneficial component of anti-inflammatory supplements.
It also shows promise to help people stabilise blood sugar levels and would appear to be beneficial for those with, or borderline, Type 2 diabetes. Resveratrol perhaps is the clos-. Anything we can do that helps cell function will help prevent premature aging.

Yes, I feel like there is a lot to get done between now and then — and each week that advances toward Christmas is busier than the last, but it is always like this.

Some students could think of only one person, others listed as many as It was discovered that those who disliked the largest number of people seemed.
Equally true, those who liked the largest number of people also tended to be the most liked. The point is that what goes around comes around.

Tauranga gym lunges to the top In a turn of events they never saw coming — the team at The Gym has beaten all of their competition to be named the most supreme gym in the country.
The gym also won the Club of the Year in the over members category. We were able to really incorporate some world-class design elements and be specific to client demands, like our female-only area and our HPA and TRX functional training zones.

And to celebrate their 50th birthday celebration and Christmas, the Crozier family expertly cooked up 14 nine and a half kilogram roast turkeys.

Residents give council a good report card By Sue Newman When the Ashburton District Council went to its residents to see how it was performing, it was delivered a good report card. A recent National Research Bureau survey showed the council achieved a high rate of resident satisfaction, well above the national average in some categories. At the opposite end of the scale, residents indicated they were far from happy with the performance of their mayor and councillors or with the way in which the council communicated with residents.
The mayor and councillors received a pass mark of just 45 per cent, compared to 64 per cent last. The council is not alone, however, in scoring badly for its communication efforts. It is performing better than the national average which is 38 per cent and its councillors and mayor are on par with the national performance average. Council staff, however, are rated more highly than in other parts of New Zealand, with a 63 per cent satisfaction rating compared to 52 per.
Mayor Angus McKay said the survey, overall, painted a positive picture of the council and its services. Of those calls, 65 were medical and eight were to accidents. Twenty-eight of the calls were urgent. When she died from the agressive cancer three months ago her husband Neil wanted to highlight the harsh reality of breast cancer.

Her loss still so raw, a family drawing by one of the children hangs on the wall, all five of them happy with life in their new-found home, Ashburton.
His daughters Samantha, 11, and Angela, 15, have had a tumultuous three months, while son Ron, 8, has put on a brave face. All are slowly adjusting to the reality of a future without their mother. The girls are learning to cook so they can put dinner on the table, because if they waited for their father to get home, they may not be eating until 10pm some nights. Even when Vilma was ill it was still good to see her at home, sitting, because even when it was getting worse she would still go and cook us dinner.

Fire Safety officer Linda McHugh said there were eight people in the Henderson house at the time, including two children. They escaped unhurt.

The Auckland family was woken by the sound of smashing glass early yesterday. Coral Ferguson heard the noise in her Takapuna home, but decided she had probably been dreaming and went back to sleep.
Later that morning Mrs Ferguson and the other residents of the house found a hole about 30mm wide in their glass front door, which had exploded outward. The jagged hole was lined with several wisps of brown and white fur, and the residents, who do not own a cat, concluded that an unknown animal had made its escape at speed through — APNZ their front door. It rarely happens. When the Christmas countdown starts, most of us start winding up.
Too often that means when Christmas Day dawns we are achingly tired and in no mood to celebrate. Boxing Day sales provide the perfect opportunity for the well-planned to get a superheadstart on next Christmas. In terms of bringing families together, Christmas is a winner. It might be the one occasion in a year when everyone makes an effort to get together with kith and kin but at least they do it. The presents, the feasting and the other trappings that have become part of Christmas Day are really incidental.
Nice to have but definitely not necessary. The glow that comes with receiving gifts, no matter how expensive, how carefully chosen, inevitably wanes with time; the family spirit that is generated at Christmas lasts a whole lot longer.

The lingering effects of Cyclone Evan were still being felt across the country yesterday but should ease by today, the MetService says.

Mr Thordarson said there was a low to the west of Northland caused by the remains of tropical Cyclone Evan which was moving slowly south.

Gunman traps and ambushes US firefighters still battling to contain the blaze, as the shooting thwarted initial efforts to douse the flames. So far, four homes have been destroyed and four others damaged. The incident in Webster comes 10 days after the shooting rampage at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, in which 20 children, aged six and seven, and six adults were killed.
The shooter, Adam Lanza, killed his mother at their home before heading to the school, where he eventually took his own life. President Barack Obama said he would support a new bill to ban assault rifles, and has put vicepresident Joe Biden in charge of a panel looking at a wide range of other measures, from school security to mental health. Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein has pledged to introduce a bill in January that would ban at least military-style semi-automatic assault weapons, and would curb the transfer, importation and the possession of such arms.
Dozens of Jews who claim to be the descendants of a lost biblical Jewish tribe emigrated to Israel this week from their village in northeastern India, celebrating their arrival after a five-year struggle to get in. An Israeli chief rabbi recognised them as a lost tribe in , and about moved to Israel over the next two years before the government stopped giving them visas.
Israel recently reversed that policy, agreeing to let the remaining Bnei Menashe immigrate. Fifty-three arrived on a flight this week. Michael Freund, an Israelbased activist on their behalf, said nearly others would arrive in the coming weeks.

Avraham Poraz, a former interior minister, said they were not linked to the Jewish people. When Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar recognised the Bnei Menashe as a lost tribe in , he insisted they undergo conversion to be recognised as Jews. He sent a rabbinical team to India that converted Bnei Menashe, until Indian authorities stepped in and stopped it.
It was not immediately clear if he killed himself or was shot in the crossfire with police. Firefighters were. Two US firefighters have been shot dead and two others wounded when a gunman opened fire as they responded to a Christmas Eve blaze, in what police are calling an apparent ambush.
