The standard of Body Art at Eumundi’s recent Australian Body Art Carnivale was staggeringly good. The event featured a great balance of national professional competitors and talented locals transforming bodies into walking works of art. Photographer Alain Bouvier captured nuclear waste alien, Lee Loo and her theatrical stage performance, for airbrush artist and category runner up Kelli MacAlpine. For more photos turn to page eight and 21.

Editor's Word on the street is... Desk I love how different issues of Eumundi Green seem to choose their content through no choice of my own. In this Green we are all about capturing the colour of the recent Australian Body Art Carnivale, but we also celebrate our pets and vets too. Thanks to those who sent through photos of snuggly pets on a cold edit night – they all gave me a smile – some a good laugh. Sacha Hamilton-MacLaren editor@eumundigreen.com.au

Unfortunately for Eumundi Green our talented designer Rhana Harrison is leaving the team to concentrate on Anura Design. She’s been an absolute joy to work with, a creative force to be reckoned with and has become a wonderful friend.

The good news though is Lil Staff from Cooroy is taking on the role. She and Rhana have worked together in publishing before so a more seamless passing of the baton an editor couldn’t hope for – and she’s lovey to boot.

Business News Ochre moves into new medical centre Weekend music at Bo Ho a big hit

Eumundi’s Bohemian Bungalow is now showcasing local music talent on both Saturdays and Sundays, much to the delight of local groovers Nate and Bessie, who were captured at the Ayla Scanlan performance recently by Scott Lowry.

Eumundi's medical practice has now moved upstairs into the former Cocoa Chocolat space. The centre currently offers three local doctors for general medicine and plans to have a fourth GP available by the year’s end. Doctor David is a skin specialist and has helped fit out the new specialised skin surgery. There’s also a dedicated pathology room that is a QML collection point. Medical Centre Manager Angela (pictured centre with nurse Sam on the left and Dr Karen, right), said Ochre specialises in providing remote and country medical clinics for families.

Council to hold forum for Eumundi Scout hall Cr Greg Rogerson, along with council staff will be holding a meeting for the Eumundi community to discuss the future use of the vacant Eumundi Scout Hall on Thursday 29 May, 6 - 7pm at Eumundi CWA Hall. All welcome. For more information commdevelopment@sunshinecoast. qld.gov.au.

Discover Eumundi extension gets green light – again! The Eumundi Historical Association (EHA) is excited to announce that contracts were finally signed this week between the association and the Federal Government to receive Regional Development Australia Funding to build a new multi-use extension at the back of Discover Eumundi (DE). The funding application was successful just before the federal election in 2013 but was delayed with the change of government. DE manager Wendy Birrell said, “It’s fabulous that all the hard work of many years trying to get funding for an extension at the Centre has finally paid off”. A project manager and architect have been appointed and the project timeline is being fine tuned. More news soon on when it will start and the expected finish time.

Computer Notes Nathan Woodcock Some of you may have heard of Heartbleed? It’s a newly discovered security hole on websites that run a type of security called Open SSL. Heartbleed exploits a built-in feature of many websites called heartbeat. When your computer accesses a website, the website will respond back to let your computer know that it is active and listening for your requests: this is the heartbeat. Normally when your computer makes a request, the heartbeat will only send back the amount of data your computer sent. However, this is not the case for servers currently affected by the bug. The hacker is able to make a request to the server and request data from the server's memory beyond the total data of the initial request. It is this extra amount of info that may contain information on users previous logins, passwords etc. What should you do? Just change your passwords on affected websites, such as google, yahoo etc. Many of you may have received emails from websites you are subscribed to already asking you to change your password. There’s no need to panic – the chances of a hacker getting a password, and being able to match it with a username, are slim.

Business and Community News BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT Who would have thought that an old Eumundi dairy could be transformed into a busy, fully operating, jam-packed vet? Yes, that’s right; this is now the local Eumundi Range Road Veterinary Surgery run by David and Alison Clift, treating a range of animals from turtles to guinea pigs; hairless cats to horses; cows to rats and dogs and cats. Alison Clift, wife of vet David Clift and helper at the centre, says the centre’s success comes from their love of animals, “I think it’s successful because we really love animals. We are part of the community and people know that if they’ve got a problem with their animal we’ll try our very best to help them.” However, because of their love for animals it is sometimes challenging to say goodbye. Obviously, this can be very difficult for the owners of the animal as well, so if necessary the vets will do a home visit. This is not only for upset owners as home visits may also be required for big animals such as horses and also for people who are unable to get to the centre. Being a vet is a very competitive business. It needs a strong

character. For every animal that cannot be saved, there are 10 more that can. Hard decisions have to be made based on how much money the owner has and the expense of the treatment. It can be difficult and sad, but the Eumundi Range Road Veterinary Surgery has survived where others have failed. They are very positive and stay strong no matter what challenges they face. The veterinary surgery is a happy place; this shows the second you walk in. Alison’s dog Bear and the vet nurse’s dog Lolly, come running to meet you. Having them there assists to calm down some of the patients that come in and they also brighten your day in many ways. Eumundi Range Road Veterinary Surgery has encountered many interesting cases: when a horse called Doc cut his knee with barbed wire, it was treated, but as it was healing he bit the cut and had to be kept at the vet for an extra three months.

Lots of people thought that he should be put down and his owner was very worried about his wellbeing. The Eumundi Vet ended up putting a pipe on his leg to stop him biting it and gave him a muzzle just in case. 5442 7803

Community News Councillor Robinson update ANZAC Day It was a real privilege to attend the ANZAC Day dawn service at Verrierdale for the first time. This was a moving ceremony and it was extremely well-attended by nearby residents. It was wonderful to mingle with some of our distinguished war veterans during breakfast afterwards. Later that morning I was honoured to participate in the Eumundi ANZAC Day parade, which included light horse re-enactors, a bagpipe band, and Riding for the Disabled’s horse and carriage, and was followed by a stirring speech

by Air Marshal (Retd) Geoff Shepherd. The main street was lined with observers who joined us to commemorate this important occasion. Finally, I attended the Yandina/ Eumundi ANZAC Day ceremony at the Yandina cenotaph, where the reading of poetry by primary school children was a particular highlight. Again, there was a wonderful turnout and a marvelous speech by Major (Retd) Terry Johnson. Congratulations to Helen and Kerry Cook – they did a terrific job organising this ceremony

and in carrying out the Master of Ceremonies duties. Thank you to the organisers of all these events (and the many other events held across the region) – we appreciate the work you do to help ensure our servicemen and women are commemorated. Doonan Bridge Road upgrade I was thrilled to formally open the final part of the road-sealing project on Doonan Bridge East Road. This road is often used to reduce travel time between Eumundi and Coolum and the upgrade has significantly improved safety and reduced

the risk of flooding. I am grateful to council’s project team for completing this upgrade before the Easter tourism season. Meet and greets I had a lot of people drop in at my latest ‘meet and greet’ to say hello and talk about local issues. The interstate school holidays meant it was a very busy morning at Eumundi Markets, which is always great to see. My next "meet and greet" is on Wednesday 25 June (10am-12pm) – if you need to get in touch before then, please email stephen.robinson@sunshinecoast. qld.gov.au or call 5441 8086.

Body Art Carnivale


Of Dreams and Nightmares Words and photos Leo Wiles Body Art was unleashed in full fury recently in Eumundi as over a thousand enthralled spectators witnessed living canvases come to life in the categories of Brush and Sponge, Airbrush, Special Effects and Face Painting. Other onlookers took part in the All Dolled Up competition. The winner was Shana Dean with her black lace winged Barbie sporting a Skeletor grin. Runner up was seven year-old Alfie Harris with Terminator. Fashionistas enjoyed numerous catwalk parades, including Wearable Art offerings where recycled materials are utilised to create funky fashion. People were given the opportunity to bid on the Car Bonnet Art with Rene McGovern’s bonnet going under the hammer for $275 to a thrilled local family much to the delight of Rene’s son and The Voice contestant Isaac. Event manager Danielle Taylor explained how the event


has evolved from a one day event with one tent to what an impressive event it is now. “ABAC can only get bigger and better as body art becomes increasingly popular with a wider audience,” adds Danielle who along with ABAC’s ten strong voluntary organising committee are handing over the mantle to the Original Eumundi Markets (OEM) in time for the 2015 Australian Body Art Carnivale. OEM manager Peter Homan said, “We wish to thank the Eumundi Chamber of Commerce, its volunteers and the town of Eumundi for delivering an outstanding Carnivale this year and for laying the foundation for OEM to build the event to an internationally recognised event.”

Peter revealed that plans for 2015 are already afoot with some exciting changes that include new competitions and other drawcards to entice and excite an even larger audience.

Ghouls and angels danced all night This year’s Body Art after party saw dreams and nightmares come to life and dance the night away at the School of Arts. The Sleepwalkers party was a great success thanks to fab music from DJ Dave Daly, amazing staging by Lisa Williment of Parti Event Decorators and a good crowd of body arters.

Community News Your Say Thank you to 2014 Australian Body Art Carnivale Volunteers Congratulations and a heartfelt thanks to all our wonderful volunteers for their support and efforts for this year’s Australian Body Art Carnivale held on 3 and 4 May. Two brilliant days of sunshine and hoards of happy competitors, models, sponsors, media, supporters and general public. The Carnivale ran smoothly from Friday to Sunday evening, all thanks to the 80 strong local volunteer group that came together to give freely of their entire weekend. The average age of our volunteer crew is 52, so it just goes to show what a wonderful community ethic we have of volunteering for community causes. It was indeed a pleasure working with such capable and dedicated people who sign up year after year. Now in its eighth year, the event draws crowds from all over the Coast, Toowoomba, Wide Bay, Gold Coast and Interstate. We look forward to another successful event in 2015. Next year, Body Art will return to its founder, the Original Eumundi Markets, who will take over management. It is through the commitment of volunteers that the Australian Body Art Carnivale happens in our corner of paradise. So if you want to sign up for next year, please let Peter know on 54428581. Finally, thank you to our Event Manager, Danielle Taylor for all

her hard work, dedication and commitment to Body Art over the past five years. Yours in Volunteering! Kerrie Bryant-Adams, Chair – 2014 Australian Body Art Carnivale Organising Committee.

Letter concerning the EDV call for shire boundary realignments

Give us a valid reason to annex part of The Sunshine Coast Council to the Noosa Council (with reference to Eumundi Green Article 6 March "EDV Residents re-group for action,Community News!"), then your argument may have a purpose. I have lived in the Maroochy Shire, then consequently the Sunshine Coast Council for over 50 years. Throughout my time here I have worked in Noosa Shire for over 25 years. My family, including grandchildren, have and are currently attending high school in the Noosa Shire. I also know quite a number of families who live in Noosa Shire and attend schools in Sunshine Coast Council area. The boundaries of council areas

do not affect our children's and grandchildren's education. We can still have a community interest, can bank, shop, still be members of sporting groups, cultural groups and libraries etc. without the need for the costly realignment of boundaries. In regards to visiting our shire chambers (March 20 Community News!) I ask all: how often do we visit them? Most business is done through the internet. Incidently, it only takes me 5 minutes more to drive to Nambour as opposed to Tewantin, and without the roundabouts. Travelling time to Maroochydore I know is longer, but look at the lovely shops down there. We already have a councillor who is allocated an allowance to spend in his area.If he should fail to do this, it is our right to vote the said councillor out at the next election. The money being wasted on this could be used for a more needy cause, one that would ultimately result in better outcomes. Put the boundary line anywhere, there will be people just over the fence who THINK they are more affiliated with over the fence. We live in a lovely part of Australia, this is the reason people want to make their home here. It has nothing to do with shire boundaries. Thank you, Kay, Eumundi, Sunshine Coast Council - and proud of it.

ANZAC Day on the Western Front, Villers Bretonneux We had ANZAC Day in Chiang Mai. I handed out sprigs of

rosemary (I grew) and ANZAC biscuits (I carried in from trip home). I told all the different nationalities about our special day and I heard theirs. I had flags flying and it was rather good. When I got to Darwin Aussies were still talking about how returning soldiers don't feel appreciated like the ANZACs..... It was a disturbing discussion and raised issues of glorifying war etc and the solutions all were our little service. People coming together appreciating what we have and how we keep it. (Hard to fit Afghanistan and some other fights in there seeing as they are mostly political and oil driven) but nevertheless at the community level we must acknowledge those who sign up to protect us and support them no matter where they are sent. So well done Eumundi but maybe we need to ensure that all returned service people are acknowledged and may need to Ask in E Green... are you a returned service person? Or do you know one. Our community would like to acknowledge your service on its special day. Actually dead or alive our soldiers have made a sacrifice, often coming home with mental disturbances and physical problems. On that note all who serve in the community may get a special mention in their community. Janet Millington

Sport and Community Kids Eumundi Dragons U12's Report - Weekend of Round 2 (Regular Comp) Peter Kerr Due to the fact that our scheduled match with Sunshine Coast Grammar School U12's (3 May) had to be postponed our boys played a most enjoyable "friendly" with the U12 boys from St Andrews on 2 May. We would like to thank Steve Robson and his players for providing us with much needed match experience within a friendly but competitive environment. All players and supporters enjoyed the evening so much that we are planning on making such games a regular occurrence throughout the season. The match was played under cloudy skies with a light breeze

blowing light showers across the immaculate playing surface at the Peregian Springs Sports Reserve.

more evenly poised with the play going from one end of the field to the other.

Our boys were put under pressure from the outset and showed admirable resilience and determination to hold out the St Andrews boys for as long as they did. In the first half the St Andrews boys crossed our line three times but on each occasion they had to play their best Rugby to do so.

Positive features of the game for the Eumundi team was the way our forwards performed, especially the scrum, and the way in which we were able to defend through effective use of sliding defence when under attack on the flanks. When our backs had clean ball they were also able to use their size and pace to good effect.

In the second half the Eumundi boys, on the back of some solid work by our forwards, were able to make positive inroads into the St Andrews defence. Even though we weren't able to cross their try line the game was much

All 14 players put in 100 per cent and demonstrated real skill development after the training sessions and pre-season games that they have been a part of over the past couple of months.

Our player of the match, scrum half Kaan Askew, who was made captain for the game, showed calmness and leadership when the pressure was on. He pulled off some excellent tackles in defence and ably served his teammates from the base of the rucks and scrums.

Schools and Community Kids Planting seeds of self worth in our children Siona Howard

Being a Mum of two beautiful, unique and clever little girls fills me with pride and gratitude every day. What an absolute gift it is to raise a child. Being a mum is something I had always wanted to be, it was on the top of my

list of must do’s in my life. Being a logical, happy and capable person, I always assumed it would come naturally to me. Along my journey of motherhood, I became very conscious of how I was reacting, speaking and interacting with my children. Among many positive and wonderful times, there were moments of doubt, bad management, worry and tension which were all reflected back to me by the mirror that was my children. They soaked up every little inch of what I was feeding them. Being aware of this made me understand what it

was that I truly wanted to nourish them with. Parenting in a contented, accepting and compassionate frame of mind is very important to me. Just as important is being able to raise confident, respectful, grateful, kind and capable children with good values, manners and common decency. Our children notice and crave every positive expression, genuine word of encouragement, subtle touch and moment of eye contact which we give to

them. It makes them feel secure, appreciated and loved. A little dose every day nourishes their inner strength and builds self worth. I love to write cards and notes to my girls with positive words and to tell them how I feel about them. I know they read them over and over again. These words are building beliefs in their minds so I make sure they are full of goodness and honesty. Likewise, accepting the priceless treasures our children give to us, shows them how much we value them… I believe we must nurture that desire to give.

Eumundi teen steals the show Thirteen year-old Eumundi local Caitlin Tickner of St Teresa’s Catholic College, recently took out the People's Choice Award at the Australian Body Art Carnivale in the face painting category. Caitlin, who painted her big sister Maddie as an ice queen, has just started body

painting and is already capable of such an amazingly high standard of artwork. So much so that the judges announced the new Judge's Encouragement award on the spot especially for Caitlin, which includes a free course learning to spray paint body art.

Art, Markets and Local Crafts Market chef Wednesdays with the Coast’s best Market Chef was off to a fantastic start recently with local Eumundi chef Bryce Davis of Bohemian Bungalow in the kitchen along with students from Maroochydore State High School and Burnside State High School. Market Manager Peter Homan said, “It’s a great chance

for students and market goers to learn some tricks of the trade and a few new recipes from some of the best in the business.” Other restaurants taking part include: Bistro C (Noosa), The Long Apron (Montville), Thomas Corner Eatery (Noosaville),

Noosa Boathouse (Noosaville), Gaston (Noosa), and Berardo's (Noosa). Peter says the cooking demonstrations are designed to be educational and fun for students interested in pursuing a career in the hospitality industry.

“Market chef is a truly unique opportunity to be mentored by top chefs sharing their expertise, cooking techniques and skills,” he said. Bryce has shared his recipe from the day with Eumundi Green readers on page 15.

Simona Chytil of jewellery label Studio Swoon Lili Frey Mayan and Aztec civilisations. I recall wondering why jewellery such as that in the museum was no longer being made. How did you develop your individual artistic style? Early in my career I was attracted to the minimalist style of contemporary jewellers, sculptors and architects such as Frank Gehry and Gaudi. However nature continues to be my ultimate muse.

What is the most valuable lesson you have learned on your journey as an artist? Inspiration can come from anywhere and it may take years before certain impressions coalesce into a design. As an artist I try not to worry about the popularity of my work and have learned to use word of mouth marketing and social media to effectively promote Studio Swoon's profile.

In what direction do you envisage Studio Swoon to be headed?

What inspired you to embark on a career in goldsmithing? My original inspiration came from a 1985 visit to the Vatican museum in Rome. I was seduced by the beautiful gold jewellery on display - Etruscan, Phoenician, Greek and Roman - as well as artefacts from the Thursday 15 May 2014

Theatre and Books Indee Theatre John Burls One cast member is growing a short beard and one is selfbalding (neither of them female) for the upcoming season of The Vicar of Dibley. Everyone is getting into their characters with the aim of bringing the hugely popular TV series to life on the Indee stage, come late May. Folks outside of the theatre are getting into the swing too, with one table booked as the Dibley Parishioners and another as Geraldine’s Flock. Not sure about these quotation marks. It’s all good fun and bodes well for the season. It’s certainly not deep and meaningful theatre, although laughter can be deep and meaningful. One of the favourite tipples in The Vicar of Dibley is Amontillado sweet sherry,

virtually impossible to get now that trade agreements have been signed, making it a no-go name for Australian winemakers. Should anyone have an old Amontillado sweet sherry bottle (empty is fine but label necessary) we’d be grateful for a loan. Anyone wanting to buy an Australian sherry these days must look at the shelves in their local bottle shops for a wine called Apera. Those daring enough will buy a bottle and in the privacy of their own home still offer it around as sherry, but make sure the blinds are drawn.

If the title grabbed your eye and made you keep reading, you have been seduced by the ubiquitous listicle: something in between an article and a list. You know the: Ten Ways to Get Rid of Belly Fat; or Five Things Your Doctor Won’t Tell You (note the use of capital letters as well!). Here is my contribution to the literary form:

Surprising things I learned about listicles 1  Listicles can be literary. I had assumed that they were just devices to attract clicks (clickbait) but I learned that there are whole websites (Listverse) devoted to them and more and more articles are being written as lists. Some noted book examples include: Eco’s book, The Infinity of Lists and Steven Covey’s The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Poems can also take list form: consider Christopher Smart’s (1722 – 1771) poem on his cat, Sandy Luscombe as Geraldine the Vicar and Eddie Ellis as David Horton

2 L isticles are popular because they work. They are easy to write and to read because they organise information in a manageable

way which particularly suits our information overloaded culture. Listicles don’t require a thesis or a logical sequence in which each section is informed by the previous one. As Guardian writer Stephen Poole says, “If they lack complex structure, that lack is sometimes precisely the point. They are, essentially, themed compendia of micro-articles, each one self-contained. I suggest that we call each part of a listicle a particle.” 3 L isticles are a bit subversive. They tend to “subvert the dominant literary paradigm”. As an early example of the form, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to a church door. I recommend a bit of research on the not so humble listicle. You might not see them in quite the same way.

Food Market chef hotpot Bryce Davis. Photos thanks to Merrie Tompkins My chosen dish, Garlic and Chilli King Prawn Hotpot, for the first Market Chef demonstration went quite well I thought - none of us (thank god) got any chilli in the eye or lost any fingers - and to finish both schools presented two delish dishes.

The idea behind it all is simplicity and appreciation for the ingredient without over processing - which is really what I'm about in my work. Although the dish was relatively quick, the students still needed

to pay attention to their knife skills and work together as a team.

The white anchovy butter in this recipe is a little secret ingredient of mine, it just lifts your seafood dishes up a notch! Try it straight on scallops under

Thank you to the students that participated in Market Chef.

Garlic & Chilli Prawn Hotpot Pasta Recipe • 3 Green King Prawns

• 1 Orange for zesting

• 150ml Olive oil

• 3 White anchovies

• 150g Unsalted butter

• 1 Golden shallot

• 1 Long red chilli (½ fine chopped and ½ julienne)

• Flat leaf parsley

• 2 Cloves of garlic • 1 Teaspoon of baby capers • 1 Lemon for zesting

• Sea salt • Fresh cracked white pepper • 50 – 100ml white wine Method To start, make your butter. Finely chop garlic, anchovies, capers, shallots and parsley, then fold into softened butter. Add two pinches of sea salt and a combined teaspoon of lemon and orange zest.

After only a minute, turn prawn over and add garlic, chopped chilli and anchovy butter. Fry off for 30 secs then deglaze with the white wine. Add a heaped tablespoon of anchovy butter and wriggle the pan to emulsify.

Now peel your prawns leaving the head and tail on, de-vein (run sharp knife gently down spine of prawn opening flesh enough to pull out vein) be careful not to cut too deep (don’t butterfly).

Take the prawns out and arrange in hotpot. Leave the butter cooking and add white wine and parsley. Squeeze zested cheek of lemon on. Pour the sauce over the prawns and arrange julienne chilli on top to garnish, drizzle with olive oil.

Zest a quarter of each of the lemon and orange and add to the butter mixture, add a pinch of sea salt and white pepper. Bring a fry pan to med – high heat, add olive oil and King prawns and season.

Bake in a hot oven for about 4 minutes only. Serve hotpot on an underplate with an extra wedge of lemon and warmed crusty bread - oh and of course a glass of vino! Enjoy!

Health What is Osteopathy? Cynamon Thomas, Osteopath Osteopathy a health care system that recognises the important link between the structures of your body and the way it works. So yes Osteopathy is about bones and joints, as well as muscles and connective tissue. It is also concerned with how these structures affect the whole body through connections with the nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.

Techniques include deep tissue massage, stretching and mobilisation of specific joints, as well as more subtle and gentle techniques specific to each individual and their situation. Osteopaths also offer advice on stretching and strengthening, posture, exercise, diet and stress reduction, educating patients and encouraging them to be masters of their own health and wellbeing.

The roots of Osteopathy date back to 1872 in the USA with its founder Dr A.T. Still. The first osteopaths came to Australia in 1908. A core principle behind osteopathy is the idea that the body is an integrated and indivisible whole, and contains self-healing mechanisms that can be utilised as part of the treatment. No part of the body works, or can be considered, in isolation.

Osteopaths are most commonly sought for musculoskeletal and/ or mobility problems such as back and neck pain, arthritis, postural strains, sciatica, muscle and joint injuries, headache, migraine and jaw pain. Osteopathy may also assist with breathing difficulties, including asthma, digestive problems, gynaecological problems, impaired immunity, stress and anxiety.

Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide variety of hands on techniques, osteopaths can identify dysfunction in the body.

Osteopathy is suitable for almost anyone. It can contribute to the treatment and management of a wide range of acute and chronic

conditions. The number and timing of treatments depends on each individual situation but generally osteopaths want to see a patient a few times over a few weeks initially then space visits out as needed to allow the body’s own innate self-healing mechanism to take over. In Australia Osteopathy is a registered profession whose profile is growing as a safe and effective form of health care

that is holistic and patientcentred. Osteopaths are university educated primary health care practitioners trained to recognise conditions which require medical referral. Osteopathy is covered by most private health funds and the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) scheme. 5442 8652

Lifestyle Your pet and the cold Dawn Herd, Walkabout Vet Winter is upon us and I am sure all the Eumundi Green readers have been feeling the cold. We have had the heaters on and are rugged up as soon as the sun starts to go down behind Cooroy mountain. Some people forget their pets in the cold weather, assuming their fur coat is adequate. However, unless your pet has a long thick hair coat, they could be suffering in the cold weather - especially if they are living outside. To keep

your pet comfortable and cosy in the cold, make sure their bed is slightly elevated off the floor with warm, extra bedding, like a blanket they can burrow into. Make sure their bed is in a protected area, out of cold draughts. A well-fitting coat will also help them ward off the cold. Pay particular attention to very old, very young, or short-haired

pets. Minimise bathing as this removes essential oils in the coat and also pets can take a long time to dry leaving them damp on a cold night - brrrrrrr!

Providing treats during walks and exercise can provide motivation to join you outside and brave a walk in the cold.

Some medical conditions, like arthritis, can be exacerbated by cold too. Animals that seemed fine in summer may need veterinary treatment over the colder months. Degenerative joint disease is incurable, but treatment can substantially improve the dog’s comfort and life. Treatment involves physical therapy and weight control, the use of analgesics and corticosteroids to relieve pain and improve function, and the use of chondro-protective agents to repair joint cartilage and prevent further damage. Acupuncture is another therapy that has shown good results for arthritic dogs. Keep up your animal’s fluids and provide incentives for exercise.

Environment and Outdoors Life on a better ridge - seed saviours Claudette Betterridge

The last couple of months have been a little sporadic in the garden. A terminal

illness and death in the family overlapping with birthdays and school holidays has somewhat thrown our basic schedule off track, but I'm pleased to say that regardless of what we as a family have been doing, the garden has reassuringly continued to thrive. The salad greens I planted in my recycled raised garden beds a couple of months ago have flourished and are nourishing us at almost

every meal. The snow peas that were planted at the same time have not only flowered but are rapidly filling out pods and the marigolds are doing a great job as natural pest deterrents. Although I've not been tilling the soil or harvesting great baskets of produce I have managed to do some smaller scale planting and have been raising my next crop of herbs, peas and cottage garden flowers which will all

soon be big enough to plant out into the garden. With such an intense focus on the latter part of the life cycle, growing things from seeds has been a welcome reminder that the wheel continues to spin, everything is in a continual state of change and that a small amount of action and attention now will mean there is ongoing food and cheerful colour throughout the winter.

Next swap meet at Belbunya The Bellbunya Community organic cafe, swap-meet and healing day will be held next on Thursday 22 May from 9am, at 114 Browns Rd, Belli Park. It’s a nice chance to meet people in the area, share healthy food and sell, buy or swap locally grown seeds and produce.

also a free tour of Bellbunya at 12noon. www.bellbunya.org.au/eventscalendar

Event guest speaker will be permaculture pioneer, teacher and author Robin Clayfield at 10am. She’ll be discussing the top ten ways to love your group/ community/family and explore practical ways to build resilience and connection. It’s free and everyone is welcome. There is

Nature Notes Black Bitterns – a lucky sighting Kon Hepers Some months ago we joined a group of bird observers who have been carrying out a weekly survey of bird numbers in Wallace Park, the area around the Noosa Library. Over time they have found that the number of species has declined and numbers of individual birds of species still present has diminished. Finches have disappeared from an area of high grass which is now regularly mowed by Council and the removal of an old dead eucalypt has taken away the perch of Black-shouldered Kites and Rainbow Bee-eaters and who knows how many nesting hollows. Wrens are gone from the margins which used to be dense shrub and the adjacent housing development has displaced a variety of species. This has opened the door to the arrival of Common (Indian) Mynas, a pest species which thrives in the new, urbanised environment. A number of “old faithfuls” again not sure about quotation marks are still observed every week: Wattle Birds, Noisy Miners and Friar Birds, Lorikeets, Figbirds and several

honeyeaters. Occasionally we find the camouflaged resident Tawny Frogmouths and we are always trying to get a flash (and maybe a photograph) of a Buff-banded Rail skulking along the tidal ditch running through the area. So it’s not often that we see something new. For a few weeks late last year a large black bird flew along this ditch at tree-top level. Someone said it might be a Black Bittern; most of us had never seen one. To be entered in the survey the sighting had to be confirmed. In the few weeks following we got a few glimpses, not enough for a positive ID. The bird seemed to be toying with us. Then, one morning there were two of them and one actually landed in a tall casuarina. Here is where we got lucky. One of the group had his camera at the ready and managed a clear photograph before the bird flew off. The image allowed identification as a female Black Bittern (the male has more vivid yellow plumage at the side of the neck). Since then we have sighted it only once, fleetingly.

Nature notes readers' photos I saw an interesting and quite loud bee in our garden on Lone Hand Road on 9 April and took some photos from the veranda. When I looked at the photos we discovered it is a female Australian Blue Banded Bee, which unlike honey bees don't make hives but solitary burrows in clay banks and the like. There were several busy ladies in the garden that day and it was a delight to observe. More information can be found here www.bluebandedbees.com

Image courtesy Allen Briggs - one of the group.

Bitterns belong to the same family as herons and look similar but have shorter necks. Their habitat is amongst reeds and mangroves generally near waterways under tree cover. They are known for two traits: to escape detection when amongst reeds they hold their necks and heads vertically upwards which, together with their striped ventral plumage, makes for excellent cover. They have several calls but are known for a booming sound made by the males. Black Bitterns (Ixobrychus flavicollis) ** are low in numbers but their range is right around Australia in a wide coastal belt, except for the southern seaboard. They nest in reed-beds or branches overhanging streams usually rearing five or six chicks.

Diet consists of fish, frogs, molluscs and aquatic arthropods. We consider it a lucky sighting. They are timid birds and we needed to take care not to frighten them away from this habitat. ** The scientific name literally means Yellow-necked Mistletoe Roarer. The author, Latham, back more than 220 years ago seems to have made a typo. The genus name should read Ixiobrychus, meaning Reed Roarer which makes more sense since it was then believed that these birds actually blew into reeds to generate their booming call. Under the rules of binomial nomenclature this error cannot be corrected and the name stands.

Gardening Swap weeds for trees

Help wage war on weeds during May and the Sunshine Coast Council will give you native trees in return. Simply bring a bag of weeds along to Christina Low Park at the end of Old Cobb and Co Lane in Yandina, between 8.30-10.30am on Tuesday 20 May, and you’ll be given three healthy native plants for free. Weed identification and control Over 75 per cent of environmental weeds have entered Australia from overseas as garden plants.

Many other environmental weeds were introduced for agricultural purposes. Even native plants from other parts of Queensland and Australia have become weeds on the Coast. Wind and birds can spread seeds from your garden. Waterways also spread weeds picked up from gutters and drains. Weed-friendly garden practices can reduce the spread of weeds into bushland areas. •R  emove identified weeds from your garden and replace them with native species. • Never dump garden or other waste in bushland areas. •C  ompost your garden clippings or place them in your wheelie bin. For more information on noninvasive plants and weeds view council information at www. sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/ sitePage.cfm?code=weed-war.

Heritage Timber Industry – theme for the Eumundi Sculpture Prize Wendy Birrell Arundle Store

Eumundi started life as a timber town and was settled from the 1890’s with tree felling, timber getting and sawmilling attracting many men and their families to the town and surrounding area. Timber was in great demand throughout the fledgling cities and towns of Queensland. It was inevitable that pioneers would begin to move into and harvest such areas of their valuable timbers. Before other industries were developed all aspects of commerce would have been involved in the timber industry in some way from the railway, the shops, the smithy, other services, especially the main road... Main Street Eumundi later renamed Memorial Drive - was wide so the bullock teams could turn at Etheridge’s sawmill and the railway station area. Before there were sawmills in Eumundi, all timber was sawn

outside Jim Gridley’s team

by hand using a pit-saw. A pit was dug in the ground and the logs rolled over the pit. Two men operated the double handled saw. The senior man or ‘top dog’ stood on the top of the log and the other man in the pit beneath – the less comfortable position! Soft timbers were used, mainly beech and cedar. Many early houses were built entirely of pitsawn timber and it was also used for making furniture. Before chainsaws, trees were felled by men who stood precariously perched on springboards high above the ground. Cutting down trees in this way required skill, agility and strength - it was a dangerous occupation - many were injured or killed. Etheridge’s sawmill was right next to the railway line so the sawn timber was easily transported to places near and far. Bullock teams

were used rather than horses for transporting the felled trees to the sawmills and to the railway in Eumundi. Bullocks cost less to feed, needed less tackle and harness and moved more easily through dense scrub and steep slopes than horses. Eumundi is still a town with many wooden houses, shops, hotels, public buildings, most built with timber from the many sawmills in and near the town. Caplick Park will be the site of the installation of the 2014 winning sculpture in the inaugural Eumundi Sculpture Prize. A fitting location as it was the site of Etheridge’s Sawmill. Also the park is named after one of Eumundi’s well known timber fellers Dick Caplick who planted many trees on the land in later life.

Hinternoosa has written 28 sales in the last 3 months and our recent auction successes have been tremendous. Our auction clearance rates at the end of the 1st quarter of 2014 are sitting at 100%! The Mortgagee Auction at 12 Sunrise Rd, Eumundi of an 18ac property with quality home, pool, tennis courts, etc was a text book example of how to run a successful auction campaign. There were 80 people in attendance with 11 registered bidders and it sold under the hammer on auction day. What a great day! Hinternoosa achieves results and with Ian and Linda Suter you will be part of these results. Why? We feel that we do it that much better and we have some satisfied vendors who would agree. Our sales speak for themselves so if you would like to get SOLD - as Hinterland experts - call Ian and Linda Suter anytime.
