''You've got to be a special breed
to be one of these.
''I didn't think I was one but you
grow into it.''
Those are the words from long-
serving Senior Constable Jape
Wanoa who last week patrolled
for the last time, ending a career
spanning 39 years.
It was a girl who first attracted Mr
Wanoa to Central Otago, but once
he began to patrol in Roxburgh in
1988 he stayed for a further 25
Mr Wanoa started his career as a
traffic cop based in Christchurch
In 1988 he took a position based at
the Roxburgh Police Station. In
1992 he become a general duties
officer at the station and in 2007
become officer in charge.
''When I first came to Roxburgh it
was a hard place to police. I was
the new officer on the block.''
But after running a seven-day
dairy with his partner Debbie
Bradley, he was able to break
through communication barriers
with the community.
''You have to trust people. It's a
two-way thing. A lot of people
have trusted me because I always
give people a chance.''
Part of the reason Mr Wanoa said
he lasted so long in the job was
because of his working partner of
15 years, former sergeant Andy
Reed. Mr Reed, who left the police
last year, was a ''great work
Mr Wanoa will start retirement
with a trip to Australia with
Debbie, the woman who attracted
him to Roxburgh, and hopes to
spend the rest of the year

Stories of the unfavourable dark
times of war and the hope of peace
will be sung by the Central Otago
Regional Choir as they mark
The choir, which will be
accompanied by a specially-
formed chamber orchestra, will
preform three shows of ''The
Armed Man: A Mass For Peace''
in Wanaka, Queenstown and
Choir member Anne McAuley
says the choir, made up of about
50 members from Queenstown,
Arrowtown, Wanaka, Cromwell,
Alexandra and Omakau, has been
holding rehearsals under the
watchful eye of music director
and conductor John Buchanan.
The piece was created by Welsh
composer Karl Jenkins, who is
considered to be one of the world's
most performed composers. It was
commissioned by the Royal
Armouries in 1999 for the
Millennium celebrations and
dedicated to the victims of the
Kosovo crisis. It is described as
taking the audience on a univer-
sal journey, descending from the
illusory glory of war, through its
terrible conflict and horrific
aftermath, to finally emerge with
a resounding call for peace.
The performances will be set
against the backdrop of a
selection of compelling photo-
graphs which were personally
chosen and presented by Anna
Humphries, wife of Sergeant
Major Adrian Humphries, who
saw active service in the Royal
Army Medical Corps.
Ex-pat makin' bacon
Pork on: Self-taught charcutier Anna
Mahy, of Banks Peninsula, is running a
''Pig in a Day'' course in Wanaka this
weekend, teaching people how to
make their own free-range pork
By JESSICA MADDOCK
What: Pig in a Day -- a workshop
on making pork products
When: April 20 and 21
Where: Rippon Hall, Wanaka
Cost: $180 including lunch and a
glass of wine
A one-of-a-kind course on how to
make pork products is being held
The course is run by Anna Mahy,
of Banks Peninsula, who, nine
years ago shared a bottle of wine
and studied an atlas with husband
John and made the decision to sell
their home on the small Isle of
Guernsey in the English Channel
and move to New Zealand with
their 1, 2 and 3-year-old children,
despite having never visited.
And they don't regret it, even
through earthquakes which have
rocked their Charteris Bay home
since September 2010.
When she moved to New Zealand,
Mrs Mahy wanted to eat only free-
range meat but, at the time, there
were few smallgoods available, so
she found recipes for bacon,
salami and sausages and began
making her own, from pigs she
raised on neighbouring farms.
three years ago she started
running workshops to teach her
new-found skills in an old school
house at Charteris Bay.
Mrs Mahy said she kept it simple
so anyone could attain the skills
and uses ''minimal flash equip-
ment,'' preferring to teach using
items most people already have.
This weekend's workshop will be
the first she has held outside of
Charteris Bay. The Saturday
session is already sold out but, at
the time of printing, there was
still space available on Sunday.
Students will learn how to make
sausages, prosciutto-style air-
dried hams and more.
