Baby King: New mum Erana Smith, 23,
with baby Kingi Te Rua Wehewehe
Matthews, which means King in Maori,
who was born on July 22, the same day as
the Royal baby Prince George Alexander
Louis. Baby Kingi was born at 6.55pm at
the Charlotte Jean Maternity Hospital in
Alexandra, weighing in at 7 pounds 11
ounces to Miss Smith and her partner Todd
Matthews. The Royal baby was born at
4.34pm on July 22 weighing 8 pound 6
ounces. Kingi's name was chosen because
it was Todd and his father's middle name,
and was the first name of Todd's
grandfather. ''It's a bit of a tradition . . .
what a coincidence it means King,'' During
her pregnancy Miss Smith said she
compared herself to the Duchess of
Cambridge. ''I always kept in the back of
my mind and people often said 'you're due
the same time as the Royal baby','' she said.
During labour the nurses mention Kate
had gone into labour as well. ''I was glad
someone else of the other side of the
world knew how I was feeling,'' Miss Smith
said. Miss Smith said she would compare
the milestones of Kingi and the Royal baby.

Nominations now open
The chance has arrived for Central Otago residents
keen to give local politics a go and have an input on
decisions relating to the district and their community
to raise their hand.
Nominations for those wishing to stand as a candidate
for the Central Otago District Council, Otago Regional
Council, Southern District Health Board and local
community boards opened on July 19.
Local elections were held every three years.
Central Otago electoral officer Kara Leckie said ''we
are encouraging anyone who wants to make a
difference in the local community to stand. Ideally we
would have a range of elected members of different
ages, ethnicities and backgrounds to ensure our
council represents the diversity of our community.''
''Anyone over the age of 18 can stand for election as
long as they are a New Zealand citizen and enrolled on
the electoral roll,'' Ms Leckie said.
As of yesterday, two nominations had been received.
One from Mayor Tony Lepper, who was running for
mayor again, and Cromwell woman Shirley Calvert,
who was running to become a member of council and
the Cromwell Community Board.
Nominations close at noon on August 16.
Voting papers will be sent out from September 20 and
be returnedby noon on election day, October 12.
