Iron-willed team tackles sculpture By GILL ALCOCK Helensville sculptor Jeff Thomson s creation Con- tour at Matiatia was removed at the weekend by a rugby team. The SeaLink Seniors, fresh from a 64-0 thrashing of Grammar Carlton Development on Saturday, faced an even tougher challenge on Sunday when seven of its players put in an almighty effort to drag all the iron from the withdrawn sculpture up to Nick Johnston Drive in Church Bay. They had dismantled it earlier this year. The rugby boys hauled the corrugated iron up a very steep, slippery slope and loaded it all on to trucks. Rugby club member Vern Whitehead says: It was a hard slog by prop Okeni, flanker Owen, halfback Alex, second- five Lauta and wing- centre Nesi plus Ben Bagley and Ken Gloyer. The sculpture was decommissioned after a request by headland -- Sculpture on the Gulf organisers was agreed to by the owners and Auck- land Council. Jeff Thomson exhib- ited another corrugated iron work, a colourful woven piece titled Car- pet, at this year s head- land exhibition. Board wants clarity on library first By GEORGE GARDNER The Waiheke Local Board is refusing to sign off part of its local board agreement until the wording spells out that the building of a new library in Oneroa will go ahead as planned. All boards in the region have been through a process of creating a document with the Auckland Council that outlines projects and budgets for the coming financial year, to be included in the council s annual plan. The board has been in negotiations with the council over the Waiheke Local Board Agreement which includes confirmation of a standalone library in Oneroa. At a special meeting last Thursday, the local board approved most of the docu- ment but held back on signing off on the library pro- ject until the wording was changed. The initial budget was $6.4 million for a combined library and service centre building in Oneroa, but the board opted to follow the community s wishes for a new library in Oneroa, and upgrade the council service centre build- ings in Ostend. Because of this and extra requirements for new public buildings after the Christ- church quakes, chairwoman Faye Storer says the budget has changed. The last we heard is that the standalone library budget will be $5.3m. If we had signed off the agreement, the complication is that nothing would happen because it s still down in the documen- tation as a combined project as far as the finances are con- cerned. I m hesitant to sign an agreement that doesn t have it spelt out that the standalone library project will commence in the 2011/12 year, Ms Storer says. The board moved that after the council has ratified the start of the new standalone library in Oneroa, the agree- ment would be adopted in full. The board also approved its draft Local Board Plan which will go out for public consultation in July. Hours and hours have been spent on this plan, both before and after the com- munity engagement ses- sions, Ms Storer says. People will have about a month to give their feedback on the plan. Waiheke images in the top 30 Photo day: Jane Scorey's image Restoring the Monaro. By GILL ALCOCK Two images by Waiheke residents made the top 30 in the Nikon Auckland Photo Day competition. Leap by Emma Hughes and Restoring the Monaro by Jane Scorey beat more than 1320 entries to make the grade. The photo day was held on June 11, and competitors had 24 hours to take a photo of scenes, people and places that reflected the region. The annual event was judged by Nikon technical manager Greg Olesen and photographers Edith Ami- tuanai and Chris Traill, FNZIPP. The judges say they were impressed by the many eyes of Aucklanders that have captured the contrasting moods and activities of the day. The winning picture by Mareea Paterson, titled Boy Sees Light, shows a young boy inspecting the lighting at Britomart. Her prize is a Nikon D7000 kit with 18-105 lens which takes photographs and movies. The top 30 winners and runners-up can be viewed at www.photographyfestival. org.nz this week.
