Scarecrows are coming out to play THE Mary Valley is turning tradition on its ear this year with the annual Scarecrow Festival about to kick off on September 15. While scarecrows are traditionally stuffed straw figures whose purpose is to keep the birds away from the crops, Mary Valley residents want to use the ‘crows to bring visitors to the valley – as many as we can get! The stuffed figures will be popping up on country roads and busy streets for the official festival from September 15-October 28. Anyone can join in but remember that registered scarecrows are the only ones eligible for the judging competition. Registrations open on August 15 and scarecrows should be up on September 15. You can choose to make a traditional ‘crow, or enter something extraordinary in the artistic category. There is also a children’s category for five to 15-year-old scarecrow creators. Coordinator Heinke Butt said about 100 scarecrows were entered in last year’s festival and to encourage more participation, organisers are holding workshops at valley schools to teach the ancient art of making a scarecrow. It’s not as difficult as you may think. You can make a simple “skeleton” from two wooden pieces like broomsticks by binding them together to form a cross. Use a pillowcase or a pumpkin or similar for a head (remember that a pumpkin will shrink over time). Paint a face and put head on the top of the cross. For hands and legs put a shirt over your cross-shaped frame and use gloves for hands or tie the ends of the sleeves so the stuffing will stay inside. Put the pants on and leave enough wood at the bottom of the leg to stake your scarecrow in the ground. Tie the legs. Traditionally stuffing is made of straw or hay, but you can use clothing, plastic bags or even newspapers. Stuff the pants first, tuck the shirt in, button and zip the pants. Tie rope or twine around the waist to act as a belt. Stuff the shirt arms first, then the rest of the torso. Then accessorise to your heart’s content. Find out more by emailing or visit You can pick up a registration form from the following locations: Conondale Shop, Kenilworth Information Centre, Ridges Shop at Poulson Road, Mary Valley Traders (hardware store) at Imbil, Kandanga Information Centre, Amamoor Shop, and Dagun Railway Station.

Not my fave I’M glad spring is here. Maybe now the mice can stay outside and play. I must say that up until the last couple of weeks they’ve been warm and snug and living it up inside the house, cunningly avoiding the traps I have been baiting with all manner of delicacies. (I can’t use Ratsak because of my puppy and his penchant for anything resembling poison). But their luck has run out. A recently runny nose led me to discover that their party drug of choice is Codral cold tablets. A full box of them I had stored in my medicine drawer had been ripped to shreds and, judging by the amount of droppings in that drawer, a pretty wild time was had by all. So off with the cheese and pumpkin seeds and on with the Pseudoephedrine. Expensive, but effective. So I bid farewell to my mice plague just in time to re-stock the medicine drawer with antihistamines, the mainstay of my spring diet. But it’s been a long, cold winter and my battle with hayfever will be a small price to pay to finally straighten up out of that hunched over, arms crossed huddling posture I’ve adopted over the last few months. Hail to the sunshine and balmy weather. So there you have it ... plagues, parties and posture ... Mice on Meth Not my fave!

Kids – what have we done to them?

Jay & Nicky Turner 0409 217 328

What a different world it was, when I was a gangly kid, No one had to supervise, every little thing we did. Our parents always knew, where and when we went, And every moment seemed, to us, a wonderful time well spent. We built houses in the trees, cubbies in the yard, Our leaders did not need, the now compulsory blue card. We never came home from school to an empty house, And when the teacher was talking, we stayed as quiet as a mouse. Life was fun, we were busy, we were never bored, And having such a boyhood, brought its own reward. Now the kids are living by ever present health and safety rules, With injury seemingly threatened, at home, the bush, the schools. Dangers have always been present, with risk our lives are full, But that’s no valid reason … we must wrap kids in cotton wool. They must not climb a tree, because they might get hurt, Nor should they risk infection, if they go where there could be dirt. Because of this obsession, with cleanliness, and hygiene insistence, Kids may be losing their immunities, and inbuilt disease resistance. Mothers have to ensure the food kids put into their little insides, Is totally free of cholesterol, gluten, and especially insecticides. In earlier times, kids rarely felt threatened, or suspected everyone of harm, Our parents let them play and visit, without a single qualm. (Nowadays, unfortunately, there could be the predatory stranger although, sadly, even relatives can represent child danger). Society is denying our kids, a proper happy childhood, Of a childhood that is surely their right, enjoyable and good. The world has become obsessed, with keeping children out of strife, But in later years those children, will have to face real life. Society is the culprit that we surely have to blame, Society must plead guilty, and should hang its head in shame.

Donate your old Christmas decorations DO you have some old Christmas decorations stored away that you don’t use anymore? Why not donate them to Christmas in Cooroy? Many people each year admire the beautiful decorations that are put up on street poles, roundabouts and awnings around Cooroy. But not many people know that these decorations are organised by the Cooroy Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club of Cooroy and are put up by a handful of volunteers. This is a great show of community spirit that is unique to Cooroy and is pretty much unmatched in any other town on the Coast. But the Aussie sun is harsh and wreaks havoc on the decorations so this group of vollies has to fundraise

each year to replenish the stocks. There are some generous businesses in town like Ricon Contractors, Sunshine Mitre 10, Bendigo Bank, Town & Country Home Rentals and Guardian Pharmacy that help fund new decorations. But the more decorations that Cooroy’s Christmas elves have the better! So if you’ve got some good quality Christmas decorations that you’d like to donate to this very worthy cause, give Danielle Taylor a call on 0403 023 802 or send her an email at DATE SAVERS: Turning on of the Christmas Lights Friday 30th November Christmas in Cooroy – Saturday 1st December

THE Cooroy Probus Club is a very social lot, out and about supporting local interests. This month they have caught the Olympic Spirit! If one has to judge our social program the GOLD medal would go to our monthly dinner group. This is the best supported, best attended and certainly the most enjoyed. This month 35 members converged on Maisies at Noosaville for and excellent two course meal at a very reasonable price. Our reputation is spreading an local resturaunts offer us some very good deals to gain our patronage. In a very close second place the SILVER is awarded to our monthly outings. Close, because once again our adventures seem to always include great food, wine and fellowship. Meetings (whatever group it involves) can only gain BRONZE! Ours have been better than the average with interesting guest speakers from Katie Rose Cottage, Wild Life Rescue and the Save Noosa Allience. All very informative and all ‘keeping us in the loop’.

COOROY RAG BOUQUET to all postal staff involved from Japan to Cooroy as a friend recently sent me a post card from Japan addressed as follows: My name; Somewhere Opposite Lake Macdonald; Cooroy Aust. It found me. BOUQUET to Bruce Smith Insurance for doing the right thing when advertising for a new employee recently – including the business name and a closing date for applications in the ad, and then sending me an email when the position was filled. BRICKBATS to many other employers - there is nothing more frustrating as a job seeker to apply for jobs by employers who don’t say who or where they are, when applications close, don’t acknowledge that they received your application and don’t let you know when they’ve found someone (so you can stop wondering whether you are still in the running). BRICKBATS to drivers who cross double lines and ignore give way signs at narrow bridges on the Pomona-Kin Kin Road. Please concentrate on your driving on this increasingly dangerous road. BOUQUET to Rae (Rae’s Kitchen at the Cooroy Golf Club) for serving us one of the best $10 lunches I’ve had on the Sunshine Coast both taste and value wise. BOUQUET also to the Cooroy Rag for making us aware of this great venue. BOUQUET to Bid Stimson (one of our volunteer rollers at the Cooroy Rag). Get well soon Biddie xo BOUQUET to all the local businesses and lovely people who came into our store, Jewellery Temptations, after our robbery last month to offer their support. A big thankyou!

Please call Faith - 5447 7769

SUPERANNUATION ... it’s something we all want to learn more about, especially if you want to borrow for investment or asset purchases now or sometime in the future. In September 2007, the Superannuation Industry Supervision Act 1993 (SIS Act) was amended by the insertion of a new section (s67(4A) which allows, a superannuation fund to borrow to either invest in instalment warrants or to acquire an asset using an instalment warrant type ar-

rangement, providing certain requirements are strictly met. The characteristics of an instalment warrant structure are – legal owner, beneficial owner, a payment structure and release terms. This policy does not cover instalment warrants which traditionally have been used by Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF) to invest in equities. S67(4A) allows a SMSF to borrow to acquire an asset where the following arrangement is in place:

· The loan is limited recourse – the lender has recourse against the purchased asset. However, the lender’s only recourse is to the asset. The lender cannot access any other assets of the SMFS. · While the loan is on foot, a third party “security trustee” holds legal title to the asset on trust for the trustee of the SMFS (fund trustee). The security trustee should not be the same as the fund trustee as, in most cases, an entity cannot hold an asset on trust for itself

Bendigo welcomes Karl Doss to the fold THE Cooroy Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank has welcomed a new staff member to their Maple Street premises, with Karl Doss now on board. The Cooroy local of 28 years is delighted to now be working in his home town having previously worked at the Nambour branch of Bendigo Bank.

· The fund trustee holds a beneficial interest in the asset and has the right to call for the transfer of legal title from the security trustee when the loan is repaid and any security is discharged or released. If the requirements are not strictly followed, a breach of one or more of the superannuation laws will occur which may have civil or criminal consequences. Also, there may be significant tax penalties. Other legislative requirements will continue to apply: The investment strategy requirements (the fund must be able to invest in the asset directly). - The investment and the borrowing must satisfy the sole purpose test (ie the SMSF’s objective is to provide retirement and death benefits to its members). - There are restrictions on the type of asset that can be purchased (eg assets cannot be purchased from a related party unless that asset is business real prop-

erty acquired at market value) The Bendigo Bank does have facilities to allow a Self Managed Superannuation Fund Trustee to borrow to acquire real property, either commercial or residential.

Wellington’s Way With Member for Nicklin Peter Wellington Hardship – Subdivisions I recently approached the Deputy Premier on behalf of a constituent who has fallen on hard times and was seeking relaxation of planning laws to allow him to cut off a small block from his rural property. The Deputy Premier has advised that the Government will be amending the State Planning Regulatory Provision (subdivision laws) to respond to requests like this one. This is an issue that comes across my desk on a regular basis and I know it is of interest to many in the Hinterland. The Deputy Premier has now released the Government’s Draft Temporary State Planning Policy. For further information give my office a call on 54416933. Health Payroll Debacle It is estimated the Health payroll contract debacle may cost Queensland $1.2 billion by 2017. With this in mind, I offered the Government a solution when I recently spoke on this matter in Parliament. Section 25 of the Parliament of Queensland Act allows the Premier to order that the documents relating to the IBM – Queensland Health agreement be handed to Parliament, so the Government can thoroughly investigate who is responsible for the problem and if possible, commence legal action on behalf of the people of Queensland. Unfortunately the Premier has told me that he does not intend to order the production of the Cabinet documents. We may never know who is responsible for this incompetence and unnecessary cost to Queensland. Our Emergency Service Heroes I met with representatives of our Fire Service and Ambulance Service when they marched on Parliament this week. Many of our Fire officers and Ambos are worried about job security and reduced working conditions. I tabled one of their brochures in Parliament which calls upon the community to stand side by side with them, so that they can continue to provide 24/7 protection to the community. It is up to all of us to stand up for Ambulance Officers and Firefighters to ensure that Queenslanders get the Ambulance and Fire services they deserve. Anyone wanting further information on how they can show their support can give my office a call on 54416933. Koala Habitat I recently contacted the Minister for Environment and Heritage Protection the Hon Andrew Powell MP, to request that an 83.36 hectare parcel of land, located at Lot 2 Eumundi Kenilworth Rd Belli Park, be set aside as Koala Habitat. This land was purchased by the previous government for the failed Traveston Crossing Dam. If you know of any land that should be considered as a Koala Habitat, for purchase by the Government, you are invited to make a submission to the Government. Expressions of interest opened on 14 August and close on 31 October. For more information visit: or telephone (07) 3330 6317.

Community flood meetings for Cooroy and Pomona FOLLOWING the flood events earlier in the year, Sunshine Coast Council commissioned a series of independent flood reports. The first report to be received by council considered the flooding that occurred at Daintree Estate in Tewantin. Now the reports on both Cooroy and Pomona have also been finalised. In keeping with his election promises, Councillor Tony Wellington has arranged public meetings to allow affected and interested residents to learn about the findings in the reports and also to have their questions answered by expert staff.

The community meeting for Daintree Estate was held a few weeks back. Now it is the turn of Cooroy and Pomona. The Cooroy flood meeting will be held at 6pm on Thursday September 6th, at Cooroy State School hall, Elm Street. The Pomona flood meeting is planned for to be held at 6pm on Tuesday September 25th, at the Pomona State School hall, Station Street. “I urge those impacted by the floods to attend these sessions,” said Cr Wellington. “Residents will be able to ask the experts about the events and also find out what mitigation work is planned.”

Cooroy Scout Group FIRST up, we hope all the fathers out there had a fantastic fathers day and got all the hugs and love they deserve. As usual the Cubs, Scouts and Venturers have all been busy in there various groups. Lots of lashings have been tied, photo frames made, rock climbing, and many other great activities throughout the groups. We have had more newcomers to welcome, and some goodbyes. It is great to see the kids are all still keeping active and seem to be enjoying themselves and their time together. Finally we had the opportunity to have our car boot sale (thank-you weather!!), which turned out to be another great day. Cooroy scouts would like to send out a big thanks to everyone involved, this includes stall holders, shoppers, parents helpers and a special thanks to North Coast Small Goods,

Gympie Cooloola Food Services and Mower & ATV Solutions Cooroy, for their constant support and donations at each of our car boot sales.

Maths competition winners “HOW many pieces of paper would you expect to be in a box marked “5 reams”? “, was one of the many questions posed to the entrants of the 2012 QAMT Year 8 Maths competition. One of our two Cooroy campus teams obviously knew their stuff as they triumphed as the overall winners and will now go on to represent our school in the Regional finals held on Thursday 21 st August at Sunshine Coast Grammar School. Their competition was tough as it included entrants from Sunshine Beach SHS, Coolum SHS, and our own Pomona Campus, Good Shepherd, St Andrews and Noosa Christian College. The 12 teams met at the Pomona Futures Centre, each consisting of three members with one reserve, so had fun rotating to use their best “three” for that topic on each round of questions. They were challenged with a variety of rounds of questioning on a variety of topics including Estimation, Calculations, Problem Solving and Oral Skills. Working out was timed and students had to hold up their answers – game show style to be awarded points for correct answers. The oral questioning round comprised 12 questions with a total of two minutes to answer. Our Cooroy campus team showed fantastic teamwork,

dining & entertainment Fire and Ice: the extreme of elements creating taste sensations



The extreme of elements creating taste sensations is here! The staff at Fire and Ice COOROY Fire & Ice Bar Restaurant Café located in Emerald Street, is Cooroy’s newest relaxed dining venue. Owners, Marisha and Roy Shipp managed and renovated the Victory Hotel (now the Cooroy Hotel) several years ago and both enjoyed the time they spent in Cooroy. “When we left the pub we always knew that we would return to Cooroy,” said Marisha. “Funnily enough, we used to drive past the camping shop and say ‘If that shop ever comes up for rent, it would be perfect for a café/restaurant’, and here we are.” Fire & Ice will be open for breakfast and lunch 7 days and for dinner Wednesday to Saturdays. The restaurant layout evokes a relaxed and comfortable dining experience. The team at Cooroy Fire & Ice are likeminded, that is, they are committed to providing customers with a positive experience. The menu that head chef Andrew Strange (formerly Elmo’s @ Maroochydore) has created is a mixture of modern Australian cuisine catering to all tastes. “We are also offering dude food and tapas in our bar area from 12-9pm,” said Marisha. “We are all so busy these days, lunch time can sometimes be at 3 in the afternoon.” Fire & Ice also offers a relaxed bar area for everyone to enjoy, whether it be a bite to eat, a delicious cocktail, beer, glass of wine, soft

drink or a creamy Belorama coffee. “The majority of our team are residents of Cooroy, as we believe it is important to support local businesses and the community of Cooroy. The response and support from locals during the renovation process has been fantastic, with locals booking tables and functions whilst we were painting the building,” said Marisha. “Once we settle in, Chef Andrew will be sourcing local produce to feature on our menu. We will have a seasonal menu allowing us to use the best produce available at the time. Chef Andrew is an ‘old school’ chef and will create most menu items on premises, rather than buying in pre-packaged items. As opening special we are celebrating with a breakfast special – Bacon and Eggs for $7.90 for the month of September. “Join us on a Friday afternoon after work for tapas and cocktails.” Beefeater Wednesday night – it’s a vegetarian nightmare, chef Andrew to prepare a carnivore feast and a glass of preselected wine for $20 per person, main menu also available. Tapas Thursday night – complimentary preselected tapas plate with every main ordered. Opening Thursday, September 6, 8am. Phone 5447 7224.

COOROY RAG AFTER the success of the Noosa Biosphere Community Days 2010 and 2011, biosphere volunteers are planning to repeat that same grass roots approach and present a larger scale Festival on Sunday 16 September 2012. Now in its third year, the signature event of Noosa Biosphere Ltd the Noosa Biosphere Festival - will be held at

dining & entertainment Noosa Biosphere Festival – a community celebration Noosaville Lions Park, Gympie Terrace, Noosaville, having outgrown the original venue at Noosa Woods. This free family event will offer a host of activities and entertainment throughout the day. Over 70 community and environmental groups and performers will be taking part, including Noosa Sea

Scouts, CQUniversity, Save Fraser Island Dingoes, Bike On Australia, Coast Guard Noosa, and more. Mr Tony Haslam, one of the key organisers of the event, says that since the Noosa Biosphere Reserve was declared in September 2007, the six volunteer community sector boards have worked hard behind the scenes developing policies and management plans. “To mark the anniver-

sary of that declaration, we invite the community to join us in celebrating the special qualities of our community and environment that make up our biosphere,” says Tony. “Many local groups have worked tirelessly for many years supporting community well-being and demonstrating innovative approaches to conservation and sustainable development—we wish to recognise and applaud

those efforts,” he added. In addition, the Noosa Biosphere Festival organisers invite the community to become involved in the continuing development of the biosphere as a culturally creative and ecologically, economically and socially sustainable place. Accordingly, this will be an opportunity for the community to learn more about what goes on in the biosphere and to support, stimulate

To complete this delightful programme, the Chamber Players will then perform Haydn’s Piano Trio No 3 in C, Hob XV 27 and

and get involved in the vibrant future of our area. A key theme for the day will be ‘The Importance of Place’, and a speakers’ tent will be providing a platform for some of our community elders to provide commentary on what the Noosa Biosphere Reserve means to them, and how it has enabled individual and group achievements.

Frock up for the FORMAL Memories of my school formal ARRIVING at swanky venues in fancy limos or vintage cars, the fashionable young things emerge decked out in glam gowns, striking jewellery, professionally coiffed tresses, oodles of expertly applied make up and staggeringly high killer heels all carefully matched to create a real red-carpet entrance. Even the boys glam up for this long anticipated night of nights in swanky suits and colourful ties and vests. A far cry from my school formal (if you could call it that) which was held in the local musty CWA hall with its 1950’s portrait of The Queen perched above the faded red velvet curtains and it’s creaky dusty floorboards. Food was prepared by a few dedicated teachers and volunteer mums (who were mostly there to keep a solicitous eye on their offspring) in the non-too sterile “kitchen” and usually consisted of mixed sandwiches and warm watery cordial. We (the girls) thought it was wonderful, however, and had spent many of the previous weeks and even months agonising over what to wear, which depended heavily on whether our mothers or other female relatives had any dressmaking ability. There were no shopping malls packed with department stores and speciality shops brimming with bling encrusted chiffon and satin in those days, even if you lived near a major city, glamorous formal wear catering to mid teens was not remotely on any shopkeeper’s radar.

by Denise Orr

The boys, of course, couldn’t give a fig for the whole affair and were only dragged along kicking and screaming by girlfriends or mothers .Usually they wore their school trousers accompanied by one of dad’s old jackets and ties. The entertainment for the night was often a “band” consisting of someone’s older brothers only previously heard by long suffering neighbours during practice sessions in a suburban garage. Their repertoire was limited to simple pop songs with the most basic guitar chords and melodies, but no one cared, we danced and sang along; girls only at first; the boys finally giving in to pleading and cajoling later in the night. Ties and jackets were soon abandoned and restricting collars loosened; hair escaped from fashionable up-dos (in spite of extra strength super hold hair spray) and crippling sling back and platform heels were cast aside in the frenzy of fun and frivolity. There are no photographic records of my formal, we had no mobile phone or digital cameras to record the occasion, but the memories are still there in my mind of a fun night shared by a bunch of young people about to leave behind one chapter of their lives and move expectantly yet with some trepidation into adulthood. Has much really changed I wonder?

ACCESSORIES are the icing on the cake to any outfit. Never underestimate the power of accessorising. It can change an ordinary outfit to an extraordinary one in minutes.

A very affordable, simple way to add some pizzazz to your look. All styles, mixes of bling, vintage, boho, contemporary - anything goes. Get one today and make a statement on your finger! Classic femininity takes on a glitzy twist while keeping its ladylike style. Neutral toned elegance sums up this trend with classic pearl styling and lace detailed clutches being introduced. Great for the formal or race seasons. In addition bright tones will be huge so you can expect to see necklaces that are bold and with unexpected colour combinations. Lilly Pilly Boutique & Gifts stocks a wide range of accessories, from necklaces, bracelets, earrings to clutches, summer scarves and handbags. Come in and have a look at our very affordable Adorne, Fabienne and Jendi accessories and make your new outfit shine with something special.

JEWELLERY has played a significant role in the lives of mankind for thousands of years. Women and men have used a variety of materials and objects to decorate their bodies. We have seen the use of gold and silver, diamonds and coloured gems by the ancient Egyptians. In other parts of the world, we have seen the use of such basic things as wood, feathers and even the very earth itself. The significance was not on what was used but the fact that the decoration was done. From those humble beginnings, we now have what we know as the Jewellery Industry. And we still have as much if not more variety than we had all those years ago. The Gold we use has gone from pure gold to alloys of 18ct, 14ct and 9ct. Sterling Silver has become more popular and in recent years we have seen the use of Stainless Steel in Jewellery items. The methods used in the cutting of Diamonds and Precious Gems has improved so much that these stones are now available in many different shapes such as heart and half moon. The introduction of Created Gems has allowed many more people to enjoy the pleasures of wearing coloured stone jewellery. No matter what your choice of jewellery, Jewellery Temptations in Maple Lane, Cooroy can help with your selection and now can make your shopping even easier.

news Exciting new product range at Dhom’s Kitchen

COOROY RAG DHOM and Spencer at Dhoms Kitchen are very pleased to announce some exciting additions to their range of frozen curry sauces and snacks. Their Tom Yum Stir-Fry Sauce contains their special blend of delicately balanced herbs and spices which includes dried chillies, tamarind, galangal, lemongrass, golden shallots, garlic and lime juice. The sauce can be used to make a healthy stir-fry with seafood, chicken or vegetables. For a finishing touch you can add a squeeze of lime juice and some fresh chillies to spice things up. Dhom’s Thai Red Curry Paste is made from a special blend of Thai fresh herbs and spices. It is perfect for making traditional Thai coconut curries as well as delicious stir-fries. A Thai favourite is stirfried minced beef or chicken with red paste and vegetables. Their Pad Thai Sauce, made from tamarind, palm sugar, fish sauce and salted radish, is a cooking essential if you want to capture the traditional

sauce garnished with julienned kaffir lime leaf. Dhom’s Kitchen also stocks some of the Thai cooking essentials including jasmine rice and noodles. Also available are some difficult to find items such as the premium Megachef (glutenfree) range: fish sauce, non-GMO soya sauce and oyster sauce. Dhom and Spencer would love you to cook Thai at home when not dining at their restaurant. Please come in and ask them for any Thai cooking advice. Their range of frozen sauces and delicious snacks are manufactured on site and are available for sale during their normal opening hours.

Their hand made frozen spring rolls and curry puffs can be cooked in the oven in just 15 to 20

Anita Tilly, Carol Burls and Ruth Montgomery in In Harold Parsley’s Wake

Happy 12th Birthday to Paton Aird-Cardiff for the 9th August lots of love & cuddles your family & friends xxx

THE plays are very funny and the food”s great. That’s the picture for this year’s Comedy & Consomme at The Indee at Eumundi. Four dinner shows only and the evening starts with a choice of pumpkin or roast capsicum soup, then comedy No 1 The Cupboard Was Bare, a play about two losers who, because of a boy standing up to a bully, a la David and Goliath, become two winners. Next come the mains, choose from Thai chicken curry or beef stroganoff, or (on order) vegetable curry and then settle back for more laughs with The Daffodils. A husband and wife face the return of a married daughter, who’s leaving her husband but they’d rather she didn’t move back with them. Then take a break for dessert before topping off the evening

with the sparkling comedy, In Harold Parsley”s Wake. Four female family members gather to remember their brother, Harold, a mild-mannered museum curator. What they didn’t know, until he turned up at the wake, was that Harold had had a lovechild by a bubble dancer. The Indee at Eumundi is warm and inviting and there’s a licensed bar with moderate prices. Dinner shows : 6.30 for 7pm Friday & Saturday August 17th, 18th & 24th, 25th Matinees : Sunday 19th at 2pm & Sunday 26th At 5pm (non-dining) Cost: Dinner and show just $39 ($36 for groups of eight or more), Sundays $18.

Seniors Week

After MELANIE Barnes has always loved and owned dogs, so in 1994 she qualified as an all breeds dogs groomer. She now has 18 years experience in the industry. “I owned a large grooming salon in Sydney for over 15 years and together with six staff would on some days groom up to 40 dogs,” said Melanie. “My husband and I decided to move from the busy city life of Sydney to the peaceful beauty of Cooran in early 2011. This meant selling my dog grooming salon and saying goodbye to my many doggie customers. I have not missed the hustle and bustle of Sydney, but did miss grooming my little canine friends. “I was happily surprised that there were many small dogs in the area that were requiring the services of a dog groomer and so was eager to set up business again. I have set up a salon at my home in Cooran and now offer my services as Cooroora Canine Clipping. “Owners may drop their dogs off for grooming, or I will pick up and return your dog once groomed. All dogs are washed in warm water; blow dried, have the ears cleaned, nails trimmed and clipped to owners requirements. I have groomed every breed of dog and have the experience to make the messiest mutt into a handsome hound. I look forward to meeting new friends.” Please phone Melanie for an appointment. 0419 420 433.

NOOSA District State High School students raised hundreds of dollars for cancer patient, Year 11 student Lachlan Henbury through a series of events over two days. Students donated money for their favourite songs to be played over loud speakers at a full day athletics carnival on Monday August 13. Some students approached family and friends to ‘sponsor’ them to shave or colour their hair at big lunch on Monday. A few individuals raised over $100 in sponsorship.

Cooroy Hair dressers from Salon Unique and Top Cuts donated their time and money to support the cause. A free dress day was held on Monday August 13, with students donating a gold coin to go without a school uniform for the day. The Student Council will conduct an official count of all donations received over the next few days. All money raised will go to the Henbury family. The Henbury family are very grateful for the school and the Cooroy community’s ongoing support.

health Exercising and getting nowhere? ARE you one of the many Australian’s who are trying to lose a few kilos or even just trying to get fit and tone up? Have you been slogging away but not really seeing results? There are many reasons why this might be the case. Diet and exercise are incredibly important to a healthy life. For many, however, diet and exercise don’t work for creating successful, long-term weight loss. Many imbalances within your body can cause weight gain and retention and exercise isn’t the answer for every imbalance. A certain process, hormone or element important to your body’s function may not be working properly. Thus, it is causing weight gain or preventing weight loss. The reason diet and exercise often don’t always work for weight loss is because, while they do promote total body health, they are typically not targeted enough to address the specific imbalances keeping you fat. To lose weight, you must eat fewer calories than your body burns. However, eating too few calories can cause your body harm; this is known as verylow-calorie diets, which almost always result in gaining lost weight back. Severely restricting your caloric intake can cause side effects such as hair loss due to a lack of essential nutrients; amenorrhea, or the absence of menstrual periods; muscle cramps; and fatigue. Crash diets can also cause headaches, irritation and dizziness. Eating too few calories can also cause your body to go into starvation mode, in which your body is not getting enough calories and begins to store any foods you are currently eating into your fat reserves for later use. Your body believes this is the last food it’s going to get for a while and stores it for a time when it’s needed. Exercising too much may make you fatigued and unable to make it through the day. And not exercising enough or doing the wrong type of exercise won’t help you get results and may give you injuries. No matter how much you diet and exercise, it may be nearly impossible to lose weight if you have certain imbalances including insomnia, hormonal issues, poor digestion, Candida, stress, bacteria, viral infections, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, heavy metal toxicity and so many more. So of course, it can seem overwhelming but the easiest answer is to get help! Make a Difference Health & Fitness in Cooroy offers a range of services with a naturopath and personal trainer at your disposal to tailor a plan to suit you so you will start seeing results! Visit or give them a call on 5442 6179

In appreciation I recently had to undergo, some serious hospitalisation, Requiring treatment, and much investigation, The nurses, bless them, provided tender ministration, As they tried to achieve, good health restoration, Please accept my thanks, and sincere appreciation, To have such caring friends, gives rise to contemplation, Of my good fortune, beyond any valuation.

news Noosa Hinterland Denture Services Patello-femoral pain - another type of knee pain New dentures


KNEE pains are a common complaint when we start to increase our exercise regime after winter’s hibernation. A lot of pains are due to the knee cap and the way it moves about the knee joint. The knee cap (patella) fits in a groove made by the femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin bone) and is covered by the tendon from the quadriceps (thigh muscle). The role of the patella is to improve the action of the quadriceps muscle by creating a lever at the knee joint increasing the strength of the leg. These actions compress the patella into the groove, however, because the patella is normally centred in the groove, and both surfaces of the bones are covered in cartilage, there is no discomfort. The patella is kept centred by the co-ordinated actions of the different components of the quadriceps muscle that lie on the inside of the thigh against the quadriceps on the outside of the thigh. ‘Patello-femoral pain’ is the pain in or around the kneecap. Other

symptoms may include: • Pain along the inside edge of the kneecap • Swelling of the knee • Cracking or clicking of the knee with movement • A feeling like the knee may give way (but it never does) In people with patello-femoral pain, the patella is usually misaligned in relation to the femur, which places more stress on this joint during activity. The misalignment may occur for various reasons. The most common being an imbalance in strength between the sides of the quadriceps muscle or other muscles of the lower limb including the gluteals. Joint or muscle stiffness of the lower limb can lead to biomechanical imbalances that cause the patella to maltrack within the groove on the femur leading to knee cap pain and swelling. Biomechanical imbalances can be caused by non-supportive footwear with exces-

sive rolling inwards of the foot and lower limb. Other causes can be sudden increase in training or over-training, or excessive weight and strain on the knees, training surfaces that are too hard or constantly cambered to one side like the beach or side of the road. Treatment of patello-femoral with a physiotherapy program usually settles symptoms quite well. Physio’s provide a detailed assessment of the knee joint along with analysis of the factors that have contributed to the onset of the condition. The treating physiotherapist will provide an exercise regime for strengthening and stretching the lower limb along with joint taping and footwear correction if required. If you are suffering with patello-femoral pain, contact a physiotherapist today. Craig Steele owns Hinteractive Physio in Cooroy, and can be contacted on 5442 5556.

The close relationship between the mind, neurology and the endocrine system has profound impacts on reproductive capacities of both men and women. Conceiving, pregnancy and birthing a baby involves all aspects of our mind, body and soul. Women and men who are unable

Put some

to conceive often experience depression, anger, anxiety and a loss of self-esteem. These types of imbalances can contribute TO as well as a result FROM infertility. Not to mention the added stress of possible previous unsuccessful pregnancies by where the couple will also be dealing with grief. Even stress experienced during pregnancy is experienced by the unborn which may have repercussions later in life. Complementary medicines can offer some fantastic, natural solutions. Acupuncture has had proven success with both female and male infertility and conception issues

as well as pre and post natal care and paediatric support. Naturopathy also offers a natural alternative to harsh approaches through the knowledge and awareness of the roles and significance diet and lifestyle can play. Also, through Kinesiology, we can identify disruptive hormonal communication between the brain, glands and the ovulation and implantation processes. It will also reduce stress and diminish negative emotions so the chance of becoming pregnant increases remarkably.

AFTER two years of meticulous planning and research, Pomona Fitness Centre is finally open for business. Located at 6 Memorial Avenue Pomona between the fruit shop and the chemist the Centre is owned and operated by Pomona local Ben Wright. Members can access the centre from 430am to 11pm. I don’t feel comfortable with members being out in the late night or early morning hours when it’s dark and potentially dangerous in terms of personal safety. Rather than a swipe card to operate the lock our door functions with a number pad. Members choose their own individual 4 digit pin which unlocks the front door. This avoids the situation of arriving at the door and realizing your card is sitting at home or losing your card and being charged replacement card fees. By keeping my overheads or outgoing’s to an absolute minimum (no hot showers or plasma TV’s) I can offer a membership rate that local residents can afford. The technology behind the lock gives me the flexibility to offer members a full suspension service. In other words if you have paid an advance monthly membership and you are going away for a minimum of 7 days, you won’t lose that time. I simply deactivate the pin number for the dates you are away and add that time onto the backend of the membership period. I don’t believe in charging people for a service they aren’t going to use. As long as members notify me before they go away I can adjust the details on the database and program the lock with the touch of a button. Our aim is to cater for those beginner and intermediate trainers whose goal is to slowly and safely improve their health and fitness levels with low impact cardio and upper body pin-loaded resistance equipment. ‘We opened King of the Mountain weekend and so far the support from the local community has been great’. What we offer to our clients is gym instruction with basic strength conditioning and endurance coaching. ‘I tend not to focus on weight loss. With some basic changes in terms of nutrition and a regular exercise routine (30mins 4-5 times per week) your body shape will gradually begin to change. Fat will be replaced with toned muscle mass and you will naturally feel more energised to handle those challenging situations that day to day life tends to throw in front of you every so often.

Cooroora United women are finals bound and looking good

AFTER a season that has had its ups and downs, finals football has returned to Cooroy as the Coastal Women made their way into finals football last week. Cooroora United president, Steve Standish took the time to thank the club faithful for their part in a season that has seen the club move ahead on many levels. He also took time to thank the Cooroy Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank for their support as major sponsors of the Coastal Women’s team. “We all know that sponsorship plays a key role in supporting a team and the Cooroy Community Bank branch sponsorship of Cooroora United is one of many that continue to be a great fit for us. We support the community bank that in turn supports us.

The club is on a real high right now with our newly renovated field 1 and we’re looking forward to the finals,” Steve said. “The club has worked really hard at all age levels and it’s great to see the results. To see so many of our teams out there enjoying their football on so many levels is just fantastic and it’s so great for all the volunteers who put so much into this great club.” In an added gesture of support, the Cooroy Community Bank recently purchased more than 40 club jackets for the Coastal Women’s team as well as the up and coming U17 girls’ team and their coaches and managers. It assures they’ll look sharp on and off the field for the rest of this season and beyond. Cooroy Community Bank branch manager, Fiona Hutchings said she is delighted to have been able to support the club for another season. “Cooroora United is made up of special locals who continue to re-invent the club from the ground up. We see our sponsorship as a great fit and I think all the ladies look great in their new jackets. We wish the women the best of luck as they make their way into their finals campaigns and I really enjoyed watching their last home game. We look forward to sponsoring Cooroora United again in 2013. Go the wombats!” Fiona said. Anyone looking to become involved with Cooroora United can do so by contacting the club through any of the numbers on its website:
