A 23-year-old man has pleaded not
guilty and is electing trial by jury
after being charged over an
alleged eye-gouging incident in
Jordan Isle appeared in the
Christchurch District Court on
Thursday and entered his plea to

CELEBRATING KATE: Olivia Hill kicks off a re-enactment of the petition, driven by pioneer suffragette Kate Sheppard,
that resulted in New Zealand women being the first in the world to win the right to vote.
RANGIORA BOROUGH School
Year 8 student leader Olivia Hill
has no doubts what her life would
be like had not one of Christ-
church s most famous adopted
daughters, Kate Sheppard, cam-
paigned for -- and won -- the vote
for New Zealand women.
If she hadn t been there, life
would be completely different.
Men would be all proud and
treating women like bugs, and I
probably wouldn t be here now. I d
be somebody s housemaid or
something. Instead, I m at school
and one day I want to be in parlia-
ment making sure the people who
don t have anything are treated
more fairly, she says. Kate
Sheppard is a hero. She had the
courage to fight for women, which
rights today. And I do!
On Thursday, Olivia was the
first to sign one of six 40-metre
purple ribbons doing the rounds of
North Canterbury to mark 120
years since the Electoral Bill was
passed 20 to 18 by the New Zea-
land parliament in 1893. This
opened the way for the nearly two
thirds of the nation s women who
cast a vote for the first time just
10 weeks later.
The ribbon was delivered to the
school on a broom handle, resting
across a wheel barrow, just as the
suffragette s petition -- signed by
one third of all New Zealand
women -- was presented to MPs in
the culmination of a seven-year
struggle to give them a voice in
Project organiser Lois McGirr
hopes to at least match the 31,872
signatures collected by the suff-
ragettes, with Rangiora Borough
principal Alan Sutton expecting to
get things off to a strong start
with 550 names from the school.
Eventually, the ribbons will all be
sewn together to make up 233
metres -- the length of that final
petition that resulted in Kiwi
women being the first in the world
to line up at the ballot box -- and
placed in a time capsule for pos-
terity. The purple ribbons, and
white ones on which you can write
your comments or tributes to the
suffragettes, have been distrib-
uted around the region from Han-
mer Springs to Cust, and anyone
is invited to be part of the re-
POLICE ARE asking for the pub-

broke into the Kaikanui Tavern in
Kaiapoi and a Challenge Service
Station at Kainga on Sunday.
One of the pair was caught on

Constable Michael Kneebone
said about $200 worth of alcohol
was taken from the tavern and
just under $9000 worth of cigaret-
tes were found missing from the
Challenge Service Station.
The Kaikanui Tavern was the
first stop, with the men first
entering at 2.30am, only about
five minutes after owner Matt
Brownlee had closed up for the
night. They appeared to stay for
some time before leaving and
returning at least twice over the
next couple of hours.
The offender caught on camera
footage was wearing a distinctive
camouflage-style sleeveless jac-
