Since Helen started with us she has gone from strength to strength and we are not only lucky but proud to have her with us at Waiheke Chiropractc. New Chiropractor!!! Yes, that's right we have a new Chiropractor startng in the next couple of weeks at Waiheke Chiropractc. Dr Paul Taylor will be operatng on a Tuesday all day (7:15am tll 6pm) as we have had contnual demand for Chiropractc services throughout the week, Dr Taylor will also operate on a Thursday morning as demand requires. Dr Taylor originally from England is ACC registered and has over 9 years experience in private practce. He has a large background in sports Chiropractc and Applied Kinesiology, has a keen interest in football and was a former captain of the New Plymouth United football team. New Physiotherapist!!! Again due to demand we will be bringing a new Physiotherapist on board at Waiheke Chiropractc. As we only ofer the highest of quality with our health care we have spent over 8 months sourcing the best Physiotherapy has to ofer. Brooke Lishman is a Kiwi but has been working in private clinics in Australia since completng his 18 month service at Auckland City hospital. We are extremely privileged that Brooke will be available in our own clinic on Waiheke Island when he arrives back from Australia in July 2011. He will be available on Mondays all day (7:15am tll 6pm) and Friday mornings (same hours as Dr Cochrane). If you were to see a Chiropractor and the Physiotherapist there is no need to fll in ACC forms again, they can be used by both practtoners, we use an integrated system in our clinic which allows for easy fow between the Physiotherapist and Chiropractors. There will also be discounts to patents that require both services. There are also discounts to all Chiropractc and Physiotherapy patents when you see our Natropath Helen Elscot. Waiheke Chiropractc itself has also undergone a change. It is now included as part of the BackWorks brand of "back injury" clinics. Our name will remain the same but if you were to travel to Auckland, further south to Tauranga or across the ditch to Melbourne you will be able to check into one of our clinics without having to complete New Patent forms etc etc. We will have two more clinics open by the end of 2011.

The building of a new library will go ahead in Oneroa and an upgrade of council offices in Ostend will take place if budgets stack up, following a decision by the Waiheke Local Board. The board was presented with several options for the project by Auckland Council libraries and information manager Alison Dobbie at its monthly meeting. The former Auckland City Council had ignored the wishes of residents concerning the proj- ect in its last term due to budget constraints. The community -- after lengthy consultation -- wanted a new library in Oneroa and for the council service centre to be upgraded and remain in Ostend, but the former city council decided to lump the two into a project to be built on land bought from the Anglican Church next to the Artworks complex. The local board has now decided to put the new library in Oneroa but that some of the $6.45 million budgeted will be used for a modest upgrade of the service centre in Ostend. Board accommodation was not in any of the options and the board has asked the coun- cil to investigate whether it would be feasible to move the local board offices -- currently in the Belgium St building -- to the new Oneroa library. Ms Dobbie told the board the council project team had not wanted to prejudge where the board would operate from. Board member Denise Roche said while the previous board had been adamant it did not want to leave Ostend, the move would provide space for the service centre upgrade in Ostend. If we take the local board functions away from this space it would free up some of the issues with the septic dis- posal system. It would also make it more functional as a service centre if we weren t here. Ms Dobbie agreed moving the local board offices to Oneroa could reduce refurbishment costs at the Ostend service centre and said the council would do further work on the feasi- bility of splitting the projects. Board chairwoman Faye Storer says the split will go out in the local board plan for public submissions which close at the end of June. She does not foresee too much of a delay. The project wasn t as far advanced as some people thought. It was never cut and dried as detailed designs were not drawn up -- only concept plans. It was in a very early stage of design. Work is scheduled to be com- pleted in two years. Under the new council, the Oneroa library project will come under the jurisdiction of the local board, and the ser- vice centre development will be run by the council. A swim for Christchurch Big swim: Fraser Munroe is urging residents to drop a coin for Christchurch after his charity swim around Waiheke. By GEORGE GARDNER Stonemason Fraser Munroe was between jobs and thought swim- ming around the island to raise money for Christchurch would be a good challenge . He started a series of one day swimming legs earlier this month, backed by boating pal Marcus Poelman. It nearly became a case of sink or swim at one stage, when jellyfish larvae lodged in Mr Munroe s eye. It wiped me out for four days. It peeled the skin off my eyeball, Mr Munroe says. But the hardy swim- mer continued his intrepid charity venture and now Mr Munroe is urging people to drop a coin in his Red Cross sponsorship boxes at Waiheke Marketplace, Charlie Farley s, One- tangi Liquorland, The Barn and Out There Surf and Skate which he won t collect for at least another week . Time capsule unearthed By GILL ALCOCK Historical Society mem- bers are keeping a lid on their curiosity. They have unearthed a time capsule with a sign on it telling them to keep it closed for at least another 70 years. Earthworks at the Ostend Domain saw the time capsule unearthed under rainy skies on Monday. It was buried there in 1983. The removal of the concrete slab covering the capsule is part of improvements to the domain approved last year by the former Wai- heke Community Board. The slab once formed the foundation of the Waiheke Island Histori- cal Museum before its move to its present site on Onetangi Straight. The unearthing of the capsule was attended by Waiheke Island Histori- cal Society vice-president Arnie Aretz who re- covered it intact. Onlookers were sur- prised to see the capsule was an old 500ml cottage cheese container with a sign on it reading To be opened in 2084. Of his- torical interest, we hope . Society members say they won t give in to the temptation to open the capsule and it will be reburied at the present museum site beside another time capsule laid in 2007 at the inaug- uration of the Taonga Heritage Gardens proj- ect.Society spokesman Mark James says: The Historical Society has records of the original burial but not of the capsule s contents. Out of respect for the founders wishes, society members have quashed their curiosity -- the cap- sule will be reburied and will remain unmolested for another 73 years. The makeshift nature of the capsule attests to the humour and infor- mality of life on Waiheke 28 years ago. With the Ostend slab removed, workers will install a shade shelter and footpaths in the area. The work should be completed by June.
