Upper Hutt Leader : November 2nd 2011
6 UPPER HUTT LEADER, NOVEMBER 2, 2011 NEWS 4148805AA HAIR ON MAIN STREET The men of Upper Hutt can now get a stylish haircut in stylish surroundings. TJ's Barbers on Main Street expanded and renovated their premises last week to create more space and a nicer environment for clients. The family business opened on Main Street in August 2008 and has been proving popular ever since. Owner Homam Jassim says they regularly do around 400 haircuts a week. ``The business was getting really busy and the shop was too small to have a lot of people in it." ``We decided to make it bigger and a nicer shop for Upper Hutt." ``You have all these flash hairdressers for women, but nothing flash for men, so we decided to renovate.'' The renovations, which took place over four days, have transformed the salon into a luxurious bloke space with all the trappings needed for blokes to relax. While they wait their turn in comfy seats, clients can relax and watch Sky sport or music on the flat screen television or chat to the friendly staff. Three walls and the ceiling are now painted a creamy-yellow, the back wall is covered with eye-catching gold and black wallpaper and there is double the space. ``We hope to attract people to the site with the wall paper and a bit of luxury; luxury and the reasonable prices.'' The business is a true family affair with Homam and his brothers running four barber shops in the Wellington region. The name TJ's honours the memory of their little brother whose life ended too early in a car accident in 2008. TJ's Barbers have some of the best men's hairdressers in Wellington and guarantee their clients will get the best look and the most comfortable cut. They can cater for all men's styling needs from the old school short-back-and-sides to the latest trends such as Mohawks and razor detailing. Prices start from $12.50 for children and senior citizens and $17.50 for style cuts. Appointments are not essential. Just drop in and see the guys any time. The salon is located at 146 Main Street; next to Buttercup Bakery and Cafe.

Michael Joseph Moeke was sentenced to six months home detention and 200 hours of com- munity work, and banned from fishing for three years. He pleaded guilty to illegally taking 1204 paua -- 779 of which were under-sized -- while banned from fishing. A Ministry of Fisheries spokesperson said a car carrying Moeke and two others was stopped at a police checkpoint in Upper Hutt on February 2, 2010. When the police checked they found Moeke was currently banned from all fishing activi- ties and had a large amount of shucked and unshucked paua in the car. The 93 kilograms of paua seized had a value of between $9300 and $12,000, the Ministry of Fisheries spokes- person said. Defence counsel Reginald Newell said Moeke has moved to Gisborne get away from bad influences and be closer to his family. The defendant says that he took part in the offending because his co-offenders were friends and family members, and he got roped into it as a driver. Moeke was sorry for his actions and would not be involved in any more offences against fisheries, Mr Newell said. Judge Susan Thomas warned Moeke to abide by all conditions of his home detention, because if he appeared in court again he would be facing imprisonment. Fraud was 'not a victimless crime' A judge has ordered a man who failed to pay more than $400,000 in tax to spend 300 hours repaying the taxpayer. Malcolm Ewen Anderson, 52, sickness beneficiary, admitted 14 tax evasion charges in court last week. He was sentenced to six months home detention and 300 hours of community work. Anderson was charged with 12 cases of aiding his failed companies RTS Inventories and Relax Tanning Studios to avoid paying tax, and two cases of aiding the beneficiary of Seacrest Trust to avoid GST. An Inland Revenue Depart- ment spokesperson said RTS Inventories and Relax Tanning Studios failed to pay a combined total of $106,000 and the Seacrest Trust owed $309,000 in GST. Anderson had every oppor- tunity to pay the tax but failed to do so, the spokesperson said. Defence counsel Reginald Newell said Anderson derived no personal gain from the tax evasion as all the money was lost when the businesses col- lapsed and he was not a ben- eficiary of the trust. Anderson was overwhelmed by the situation and thought if he would eventually be able to pay, Mr Newell said. Mr Newell said Anderson s family had lost their house. Judge Susan Thomas said she took into account that Anderson did not financially benefit from the tax evasion, but said that he still needed to repay the com- munity. Defrauding the IRD is not a victimless crime. It affects the whole com- munity as you are taking money from the taxpayer.
