A Greymouth family got academic honours twice over this week
when sisters Annie and Sophie Molloy were crowned dux of
St Patrick's Primary School and John Paul II High School, respec-
tively. Sophie will be going to university next year and plans to work
in pharmacy, while Annie wants to become a veterinarian. Annie said
she was not expecting the award, as she had only been moved up to
Year 8 a little while ago. "I was quite surprised," she said.

West Coast people out for
Christmas drinks could be o ered
a tipple without alcohol --- or
even have their car keys taken o
Tough new alcohol rules came
into a ect a few days ago and
Community and Public Health
said today there were now serious
penalties for bar sta and licensees
found to be serving people
underage, or with intoxicated
people on their premises.
Bar sta may o er patrons non-
alcoholic drinks or food (or both)
to ensure they do not get drunk.
Health promoter Karen
Hamilton said people refused
entry to a bar, or a drink, should
not be o ended.
" e bar sta are only doing their
job according to the law and they
are doing it to look out for you and
for the rest of the community."
Sta were also obliged to see that
patrons had a safe way to get home.
"In the extreme this could involve
taking your keys o you and
arranging a ride home or o ering
you a bed to sleep it o ."
Ms Hamilton said patrons should
not hassle the bar sta : " ey have
New alcohol laws in place
Police say e orts to look for
a missing British tourist in the
Nelson Lakes area are continuing.
Search co-ordinators say it is
possible Andy Wyatt has left the
area he was intending to tramp.
Police are appealing for Mr Wyatt
or anyone who has information on
his whereabouts to contact them.
Concerns were raised after the
tourist failed to collect a food
package three days ago while
tramping in the Nelson Lakes area.
Andy Wyatt, believed to be about
24-years-old, was last seen at Blue
Lake in the Nelson Lakes National
Park last Friday.
Police said he had planned to
tramp to Boyle settlement in the
Lewis Pass, where he was due to
uplift a food package on Monday.
Another tramper spoke to him at
the Blue Lake Hutt, but Mr Wyatt
never arrived at Boyle settlement,
Senior constable Phil Simmonds
said Mr Wyatt may have left the
area without contacting the Boyle
Education Centre, where the food
parcel was delivered.
Police and search and rescue
teams were checking huts and
tracks on the trail today.
Anyone with information is asked
to contact Christchurch Police on
363 7400 urgently. --- APNZ

From January 1, the price of cigarettes
and loose tobacco will go up by 10% as
a further tobacco tax increases takes
West Coast Tobacco Free Coalition
chairwoman Anne Hines has urged
smokers to beat the price rise and
consider quitting this summer.
"We're encouraging smokers to make
giving up smoking their resolution this
New Year. It's a great opportunity to
begin the journey to a smokefree life,"
Ms Hines said.
" e West Coast has traditionally had
a higher smoking rate than the national
average." An eight-week supply of
nicotine patches, gum and lozenges costs
about $15 --- and just by using them
people double their chance of quitting for
good. To get help to stop smoking, talk
to your local health provider, Aukati Kai

Nine seats on the West Coast
Conservation Board are up
for grabs, and there are clear
indications change is in the wind.
e Government deferred the
appointment of new boards this
year while a review was undertaken.
Now that has been completed, it is
advertising for nine members for
the West Coast board.
People are nominated by the
public but selection is up to
the Minister of Conservation,
normally for a three-year term.
Conser vation parliamentary
Wagner said the recent review
recommended that conser vation
boards be more representative of
the communities they ser ved, with
a greater focus on recreation.
"We will be taking this
into account with the new
appointments to be made early
next year," Ms Wagner said.
Rachel Bruce, a spokeswoman
for Conser vation Minister Nick
Smith, said two seats on the Coast
board were already vacant, six
terms expired at the end of April
and others at the end of June.
e Government wanted to run
one appointment process.
It was too early to say if there
would be mass change, although
she noted some continuity was
Board chairman Stewart
Robertson, of Barrytown, said
former chair woman Clare Backes,
of Hokitika, and Doug Baker,
of Greymouth, had said they
did not want to be nominated
Mr Robertson's own appointment
was up at the end of last year, but
he is seeking another term.
e new boards will be in place
by May 2014.
