    BY FIONA THOMAS

    The emotion of the February 2011 earthquake is something that sticks with Kevin Carr.

    Lieutenant-Commander Carr (right), or Chalky to friends, was named a recipient of the New Zea-land Bravery Medal today for his ef-forts in a 12-hour rescue operation at the CTV building on February 22.

    The St Albans man led a team of five from HMNZS Pegasus Naval Reserve into the central city to help with rescue efforts.

    He crawled repeatedly into tight, dark and smoke-filled gaps to search for survivors and kept going even after a portion of roof he stood on collapsed, injuring his leg.

    But he says he is just one of many

    who pitched in to save as many lives as they could and would do it all again.

    Im in-credibly hon-oured to have received the award but also deeply humbled because there are hundreds and hundreds of other people who did extraordinary things that night but will never be recognised, he said.

    My immediate instinct without a doubt was to get in and help as many people as we could.

    He said seeing the disaster unfold in his own city left the biggest im-pact on him. Turn to page 7

    Rose of Tralee National Final

    The Rose of Tralee National Final took place recently at the Legends Lounge in Addington. The Rose of Tralee festival is a celebration of the women of Ireland and the vivacity of Irish culture. Started 55 years ago, the festival attracts young women of Irish decent to County Kerry in Ireland to take part in the grand nal in August. Following dinner, the ball got into full swing; guests partied with true Irish fun and enthusiasm, dancing to the sounds of The Shameless Few.

    Debbie Costello, teacher aid: Yes definitely and I am supporting England of course because it is my ancestry and heritage. I also support West Ham.

    Courtney Mulder, mother:No I havent. Football does not really interest me.

    Kevin Cairns, call centre worker:No, soccer isnt my forte.

    Rene van Dyk, truck driver:No I havent. We just havent really had the time, with looking after our children.
