Daniella Smith made boxing
history by becoming New
Zealand's first ever world
Daniella defeated the
German champion Jennifer
Retzke for the vacant Inter-
national Boxing Federation
She defeated the champ
before a hushed Berlin crowd,
recording a unanimous
decision over 10 rounds.
Daniella destroyed her
opponent with damaging
punches to the head and
body, dropping her to the
floor for a mandatory eight
count in the ninth round.
It was important to take
the fight to Retzke, otherwise
a close decision away from
home could have gone against
Her father George, a Cable
Bay resident travelled with
Daniella as her cornerman
because her coach Monty
Beetham was unable to.
He said: I have never seen
Daniella so focused.
In all her previous fights
she has not displayed such
punching power or speed,''
He said the German in the
end, looked like an alien
character out of Star Trek
with a bulging forehead,
blackened eyes, and bloodied
For Daniella, the pain

She was now the IBF world
champion with an extremely
proud father at her side.

Birthday girls given a
ride in a 'real car'
What a shine: Janet Pickavance
can't resist giving the ''real car''
a wee polish.
Every month the Kerikeri
Retirement Village hosts a
birthday morning tea down
at the Pear Tree Restaurant

Justin Phillips from Auto
1 decided he would make it a
little more special and
borrowed a 1938 Dodge Lim-
ousine from Pete's Transport
Museum to chauffeur the
birthday girls in style.
Janet Pikavance -- the
spring chicken of the group --
was particularly excited to
travel in a real car''.
According to Janet a real
car has running boards,
proper handles, leather seats
and round headlights that
sit up on the guards''.
Janet fondly remembers
helping clean her father's
Daimler and couldn't resist
giving the Dodge a wee pol-
ish for old times' sake.
Since it would be rude to
ask a lady's age we'll just say
that the lucky Librans
ranged in from a very young
61 up to a sprightly 95.
The cumulative age of the
three birthday girls was 242
-- four birthday girls was 335

with one much loved horse
dead and several lost dogs
delivered to the SPCA after
fleeing their homes.
The toll for horses
nationally was five, most

taking fright and panicking.
Bay of Islands SPCA
inspector Kay Vesey says
animals don't know what is
going on and they panic.
There is no legislation to
prevent fireworks being let
off on private property,'' Ms
In rural areas where there
are stock, this is particularly
problematic, especially for
horses that tend to be
flighty,'' Ms Vesey says.
The SPCA encourages
people to let their neighbours
know if they are going to let

they should look to move
their horses to a safe area or

legislation that will see fire-
