Hi Everyone As someone who grew up in Brisbane I always used to look forward to Ekka time, and last week when I saw the celebrations at Embracia it definitely put me in the spirit of the event. I thought, well if we put this on the front cover on Wednesday that should give people a few days if they want to hop on a train and head down for a ‘Dagwood dog’ and a strawberry ice-cream. I then got the bright idea that our family up staying from Sydney should make the most of a sunny Saturday, so the train timetable on the internet was checked and discussions held about how much they would enjoy a day at the show. Fortunately before they headed off to the train station Brownie politely asked me if I was sure the Ekka was on? I not so politely reminded him which one of us was born in Brisbane!

Well after eating a little bit of humble pie and some checking, apparently this year is different – so fortunately we live in such a lovely part of the world that a picnic at the beach and a strawberry ice-cream at the Strawberry farm turned out to be just as nice. And so any of you thinking of heading to the exhibition you have plenty of time – it starts tomorrow –Thursday the 11th, and goes through until Saturday the 20th hope you have plenty of fun and that you enjoy a dagwood dog or two.

The Twinnies were jumping for joy with the arrival of a brand new $39,000 Toyota Hiace last Friday. The van was donated courtesy of the Jupiter’s Casino Community Benefit Fund in conjunction with the Queensland Government.

ANZ Beerwah.

Bridgette and Paula Powers from Twinnies Pelican Seabird and Rescue Inc. said that in the 12 years they had been running Twinnies Pelican Seabird and Rescue Inc this is the first time they have had a brand new vehicle. “Wow,” they said, “it was a big wow. We’ve never had anything brand new, and our birds, our feathered friends are so lucky to have it.” On the very first day the van arrived the Twinnies rescued a white-faced heron and then a pelican just days later. This new vehicle comes on the heels of another donated vehicle, an ex-ambulance Ford Transit Van donated by the Queensland Ambulance Service, which came at just the right time as their previous vehicle had died just days before and was taken to the scrap yard. Having two vehicles will make a huge difference including quicker response times, being able to cover a wider range and the ability to pick up more birds, up to six, at any one time. “And it’s good for transporting our birds to Australia zoo hospital as well,” Bridgette and Paula said. But that isn’t the end of the good news for the Twinnies. Sunshine Coast Council also gave them a

Paula and Bridgette jump for joy – oh what a feeling! $2,000 community grant for outside aviaries and Tangalooma Resort has donated a fabulous ‘Dolphin Experience’ prize which is currently being raffled to raise funds. The prize includes a dolphin feeding experience, quad bike tour, sand tobogganing and overnight accommodation. Tickets are just $5.00 each which can be purchased by dropping in at Twinnies Pelican Seabird and Rescue Inc. on Steve Irwin Way at Landsborough. Tickets will also be sold at various locations at Landsborough, Beerwah and Glass House Mountains over the coming weeks. The raffle will be drawn on September 25. But the good news still doesn’t stop there. Bob Irwin is now their Patron, a position which the Twinnies said Bob was ‘proud to accept’. With so many good hearted and generous people supporting their cause Bridgette and Paula are thankful for everyone’s help, including their sister Michelle who looks after the administration side so they’re free to put the birds first. “The amount of community support has been outstanding and is much appreciated,” Michelle said.

Glenview Students ‘wow’ them at Wakakirri Seventy-four students from Glenview State School took part in the Regional Finals of Wakakirri at the Events Centre, Caloundra on Friday, July 29. Wakakirri is a national story sharing arts festival that challenges schools to make a positive impact on the world around them.

Principal Neil Harvey said the school enters the event every two years and encompasses students from Years 1 to 7. The students had seven minutes to perform using a specific theme or idea. The story from Glenview was titled ‘Courage under Fire’ which told through dance, movement and action the story of Bruce Kingsbury, a soldier who fought on the Kokoda trail during WW2. He was killed during that battle and was awarded the Victoria Cross. The students rehearsed twice a week since early March under the guidance of teacher co-ordinators Melanie Osborne and Bianca Marek.

“Without parent assistance there is no way we could possibly do that. We have an amazing group of parents who have committed an enormous amount of time,” said Principal Harvey. “It’s all about creativity and innovation and collaboration, and it’s also about sustainability. All of their costumes and what they’ve made, is all made to think about Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,” he said. It’s these criteria and more which lead to Glenview also being shortlisted for the Wakakirri Prize 2011. The winner will be announced in November. Principal Harvey was thrilled they had been shortlisted for a second time. “I think it shows what a fantastic school Glenview State School is. I think it also indicates at Glenview we give a world class education and we do that through our students who have high expectations for their own learning; we do it through the teachers who are fully committed and are expert teachers that are interested in every single child; and we do it through our parents and community because we know they are so much behind and a part of things that happen every day at Glenview State School,” he said. Principal Harvey said the school was all about trying to do the best for each individual student, and Wakakirri allowed those 74 students to shine in their individual ways within the performance. “It’s a wonderful experience that the children have been involved in,” he said.

Remembering VP Day By Rosemary Hayes

As the anniversary of VP Day, August 15, draws near we were contacted by the Beerwah Peachester RSL Sub-branch who asked if we could share with readers the memories of one of their members to remind everyone of the importance of the occasion.

Nev Anning

Bald Knob resident Nev Anning, 94, is quick to smile and laugh, you would never guess that during World War II he experienced the horrors of war and spent more than three and half years as a Japanese prisoner of war. Nev joined the Army in April, 1941 when he was 24, becoming a Corporal in the 26th Battalion. He was sent to Changi, Singapore and was then selected to join the 27th Brigade Defense Platoon to defend their Headquarters. For five weeks he saw continual front-line action, barely sleeping. Once a mortar landed so close he could touch it. He credits the fact that it landed in the mud that the explosion didn’t harm him. “I’ve dodged death,” Nev said, “more than once.” Although the Japanese never broke through the defending soldiers lines, they were able to cut them off from water. Life at Changi Jail was difficult and they were forced to work on the Thai Burma Railway; food was just a cup of rice a day. Hidden at Changi Jail was a wireless radio cleverly disguised in a broom. Although searches were frequently made the Japanese never found it. “When listening late at night, we had a couple of lads on the lookout. At any time the Jap Police would call at the door, if we were found with a radio we would be beheaded with no beg pardons,” Nev said. This radio meant the prisoners often were aware of what was happening and they heard about the atomic bombings in Japan. They knew the Japanese were defeated and surrendered on August 15, 1945. Nev said their guards never said a word. “We knew the war was coming to an end and tried not to look or show we were happy with the situation. The rumours had spread around the

Changi Jail that if the Australians or Yanks came to attack the island all the men would be put in the jail and the Jap artillery would blow us to pieces.” On the third day after VP day, Nev and the other prisoners went to their usual work area and waited for their guards, but they never arrived. “After an hour or two we went to the top of the Jail compound and looked over at the Japanese camp, not one Jap there, it was deserted. They had all shifted overnight to Jahore-Baru off the island. It was a wonderful feeling of relief,” he said. A few days later a plane dropped them medical supplies and shortly afterwards a war ship came into Singapore Harbour with troops and Lord Louis Mountbatten and his wife. “She was the first white woman we had seen for three and a half years. She went to every unit and said ‘good-day’. We all thought she was wonderful.” In late September Nev was among 17 men from 27th Brigade Defense Platoon that were fit enough to begin the long journey home. Despite his war experiences Nev says there were some positives to come from that time. “You made mates, mates for life. None of us should have really come home.” The RSL Beerwah/Peachester sub branch will be conducting a Victory in the Pacific Service at the Memorial outside the RSL Beerwah/Peachester RSL Club starting at 10.00am on Monday, August 15. Light refreshments will be served in the Club afterwards. A social function will be held to pay tribute to Vietnam Veterans on the following Thursday, August 18, at the Drop in Centre.

The news that the Bells Creek and Roys Road median access points will be closed along the Bruce Highway in the very near future will lead to greater safety but has also only increase the frustration of local business operators, residents and local politicians. Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell has expressed his disappointment that it has had to come to this. “There’s no doubt that this will make the Highway safer. But it should never have been needed. These intersections are notorious black spots. They’ve been slated for upgrades which have never been delivered. And needless delays now mean instead of new and improved interchanges locals are going to be faced with longer travel times,” Mr Powell said. “The guys at Daley’s Turf have trucks that regularly depart their farm on the eastern side of Bells Creek to travel north to the Sunshine Coast for deliveries. The closure of the median at Bells Creek Road means they will have to travel south to the Johnston Road exit, turn around and travel north to their destination. Adding at least 18 kilometres to their trip. “I realise we have had too many accidents at both of these intersections and I am certainly in support of making this area safer for road users.

But if the federal and state governments had got on with the interchange upgrades this would not have been necessary. These intersections, along with the Johnston Road interchange, were slated for upgrade under the Federal Government’s Nation Building Program. Following the floods in January 2011 the funds originally set aside for these projects were reallocated to assisting the flood recovery effort. Advice has now been given that the project has been reinstated and that works to upgrade will commence as soon as the design is completed. “My focus continues to be the complete upgrade of these interchanges. I will continue to pressure both levels of Government to see these vital projects brought forward,” Mr Powell concluded.

Strongman sizzles on the circuit

Beerburrum Strongman, 33-year-old Tim O’Shea, has had a successful month on the Strongman circuit. On the weekend of July 15 - 16, Tim travelled to Lismore for Australia’s Strongest Man competition. In a gruelling two day event, Tim managed to place seventh overall, but placed as high as fifth in individual events, in a career best performance. Highlights of the weekend included an arm-over-arm prime mover pull, a 310kg deadlift and a Morris Minor car walk.

Now that’s a BIG egg!

Imagine her surprise when Georgia Gillespie from Mooloolah found this giant egg in the laying box of their chook-house on Monday, July 25! “We don’t know which chook laid the egg, but we were looking for the one with the funny walk!” the Gillespie family said. The egg weighed in at a whopping 172 g (6 oz) with a width circumference of 190mm and measured 240mm around the length! Against the ruler the egg measured 93 mm tall and 60 mm wide. “Our average egg size is around 78g which is ‘jumbo’ in egg carton labelling! This one makes the rest look tiny!” Kylie Gillespie said. The Gillespie chooks are regular garden-variety birds, that free-range about five to six hours each day. The happy chooks are fed organic chicken feed and household scraps, so there is no mucking with nature there! “An internet search showed this could be one of a ‘handful’ of the biggest eggs ever reported across the world!” Gus Gillespie said. “China has a 198g egg listed, that is just 1mm longer than our egg, and Cuba holds a 180g egg as their record. Previous record holders in these countries were 176g and 170g respectively. So this egg is definitely up there amongst the biggest! What a cracker!

Sunny’sKitchen Tim O’Shea On Sunday, July 31, Tim travelled to Wollongong for the East Coast Classic Qualifier. He placed fourth in a stellar field, earning an invitation to the East Coast Classic in October, a two day Pro-Am combined Strongman and Highland Games competition. The qualifier consisted of five events including heavy atlas stones up to 190kg and a Hercules Hold of two Mitsubishi Triton utes. Tim has had a successful year in on the Strongman circuit in 2011, placing third at the Australian Amateur Strongman Championships in January, and placing second at Brisbane’s Strongest Man in May 2011. Tim O’Shea is proving to be well on his way toward fulfilling his dreams of one day being Australia’s Strongest Man. Tim is supported by

After six years of making sure local residents always received their mail, Ernie and Diane Spedding from Beerburrum Post Office have decided to retire. They said the biggest highlight during their time there has been the community and being involved in community events. “It’s been meeting all the friendly people, the relaxed country atmosphere; it’s just a nice friendly community to be in. We’ve made some really nice friends here,” Diane said. It’s obvious they will be missed as they are receiving lots of farewell presents and flowers. “Customers are saying they’re sorry we’re leaving,” Diane said. Locals don’t need to worry as the Post Office will

be run by Joy and Ron Ratcliffe from Glass House Mountains who took over on August 1. “Customers can expect the same service that they’ve had, maybe better. And nice smiling faces,” Diane said. Ernie and Diane are looking forward to doing some travelling in their retirement as they now have a caravan and will doing trips around Australia. But before they go they have a message for locals. “I’d like to say thank you for all the help and friendliness that we’ve had since we’ve been here in Beerburrum, it’s been lovely,” Diane said. So only one question remains, while on the road enjoying their travels how will they get their mail? “Good question,” Diane laughs.

Pioneering immigrant honoured in gully naming A gully near the Beerwah Township has been officially named following public consultation. Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) Regional Services Director (South East) Randall Hart said Waldrons Gully had been named in honour of Francis Waldron who immigrated to Australia in 1882. Mr Hart said the gully runs through the properties that Mr Waldron purchased and owned until his death in 1928. “Waldron Gully is a long-standing locally known name and the gully is signposted at the point it crosses Peachester Road, about three kilometres west of the Beerwah Township,� he said.

DERM administers the Place Names Act 1994, which provides processes for naming areas and geographic features. Queensland Place Name plan QPN1176 illustrating the location of Waldrons Gully is available from the Department of Environment and Resource Management, Nambour Centenary Square, 52 - 64 Currie Street, Nambour. Copies of the plan can also be downloaded from Queensland Place Names at

Contributed by Sandy Johnson Last Thursday, July 28, the Glasshouse Country Christian College secondary school were treated to a musical feast by talented Christian group ‘Iron and Clay’. ‘Iron and Clay’ was created 18 years ago by Claudio Carrassco who had a vision to take the message of Jesus Christ into High Schools in a way the students could relate to. Over the years, the group’s line up has changed but the message has stayed the same and the commitment to high quality vocals and bouncy grooves has not changed. The group, consisting of four gifted singer / musicians, backed by producer Claudio’s skilfully laid grooves, hit off with a couple of well known songs such as Kate Miller-Heidke’s ‘Caught in a Crowd’, and then moved onto their own original material. The skilfully blended vocal harmonies, supplemented with solos from pianist, Rochelle, and saxophonist, Jordan, made their music easily accessible to the audience. Road manager / singer, Hannah, brought a more reflective note with her life story, urging students to hold on when times got tough. Ella’s seemingly youthful versatile vocal style belied her experience and maturity as a performer, capping off the ensemble’s program. Confronting issues such as bullying, relationships, self-esteem, depression and drug use, ‘Iron and Clay’ encouraged the students to develop healthy relationships and make positive choices for life. ‘Iron and Clay’s’ music style ranged from rock, hip-hop, pop to R & B and built a fresh repertoire with a contemporary feel. GCCC students thoroughly enjoyed the performance and by the end of the morning even some of the teachers were Music with a message as Iron and Clay performs at GCCC bopping in the aisles.

Web Review

Warning to customers who purchased a hard drive from Aldi! If you recently purchased a four-in-one Fission external hard drive from Aldi – you should return it to your local store immediately. Aldi are recalling the hard drives because they are infected with the Conficker Worm virus. This virus is quite a nasty one – it will copy itself between your devices and create havoc! The Australian Computer Emergency Response team has warned consumers who had used the drives on their computers to immediately run anti-virus software.

Warning: ‘Desktop Security 2010’ Virus This virus has been around for a while now but we see so many customers with it on their computers! It is a rogue anti spyware program that must be manually installed by the user. While installing, it will create numerous fake malware files on your computer that will be detected when the program scans your computer. This program will be configured to start automatically when you turn on your computer. Once started, it will scan your computer and display numerous fake infections, including the ones it created in the first place. If you attempt to remove these infections, the program will state you must purchase before it will allow you to do so. The reality is that these infections are all fake and some of them are legitimate Windows files that are required for the proper operation of Windows! Therefore, it is highly recommended that you do not act upon any of the files it states are infectious.

The social network The concept of 'Social Networking' plays a large part in my day-to-day thoughts and actions, not just because I am a professional website developer, but because I am a person - what’s more I am an Australian person, and 50 per cent of Australian people are registered users of Facebook and Twitter alone, not to mention the many other social online services that exist today. I present below three aspects of Social Networking: an important one, an educational one, and a fun one!

The important one Australian business owners are ever increasingly signing up to Facebook and Twitter because they feel that today’s business climate demands it of them. While the experience of doing so is an interesting and worthwhile one, you need to be willing to spend the time to make these services work for you. If you are not going to use and make updates to your social networking services at least once every week or two, then your social profile may start to look stagnant to internet users and may become more of a detriment than a benefit. Keep this in mind when considering social networking for your business.

The educational one On June 28 this year Google launched its own attempt at social networking - 'Google Plus'. We will cover this topic in detail soon, but in the mean time you may notice '+1' logos appearing beside search listings, giving you the power to boost a website’s success.

The fun one For those of you that already have a Facebook account you’ve got to check out http:// This site creates a virtual online museum who’s feature exhibition is... you! Turn up the volume and enjoy!

RSL President Libby Dios-Brun assists school leader Jackson Day with research On the afternoon of Tuesday, August 2, a crowd of more than 60 Beerburrum State School students and staff, parents, RSL delegates and local community members gathered at the Beerburrum Cemetery as part of the National Tree Day Celebrations. Two native trees were planted at the site, as happens annually on the first Tuesday in August. This annual re-dedication began with the first service in 2004 when the school established community links with the local Glasshouse Mountains RSL Sub-Branch and the then Caloundra City Council to appoint the school as custodians of the local war cemetery. This re-dedication service is an important one on the Beerburrum State School calendar as it celebrates the school’s link with the town’s history as a soldier settlement. The first tree was planted by current Glasshouse RSL Sub-Branch President Libby Dios-Brun and former RSL President, school patron and local war veteran Mr George Pike. School Captains Chloe Thompson and Shaylee Dempsey planted the second tree. Both trees were supplied by the Sunshine Coast Council. This year, to make the service more significant, school leaders began the exciting task of researching the history of servicemen buried at the cemetery. They used the internet to visit sites such as the Australian War Memorial to obtain records and information on their service histories. Visitors on the day were amazed to note that all three of the soldiers researched fought at Gallipoli, two of those landing on the beach on April 25, 1915 to fight in one of the bloodiest battles in history. For the students, the significance of other school ceremonies such as those on Anzac Day and Remembrance Day became very clear. Each of the leaders showed great maturity and confidence when presenting their findings as part of the school’s leadership program. Students in future years will have the opportunity to add to this valuable local research with the help of the Glasshouse Mountains RSL, Sunshine Coast Council and Landsborough Historic Museum.

Combined Training Contributed by Carl A. Trocki

The Sunshine Coast Combined Group Rural Fire Brigades Operational Training – Air Ops - Skills and Drills Field Day was hosted by the Eudlo RFB and held at the Eudlo Showgrounds last Sunday. The emphasis for the day was the honing of fire fighting skills and knowledge, meeting and getting to know other brigade members all with an element of fun and in a non-competitive environment. Air Operations conducted an Air / Ground Liaison familiarisation session concluding with a helicopter water bombing exercise. All events were conducted with combination crews made up from brigade team nominations and mentored / supervised by senior brigade members. The following Volunteer Rural Fire Brigades along with several others were represented during the day - Eudlo, Bli Bli and District, Montville, Mapleton, Kureelpa, Kiel Mountain, Ilkley and District, Obi, Palmwoods and West Woombye. There were also a number of brigades from the Kingaroy area.

Patchwork & Sewing One of our great products and service in store is the Handi Quilter Avant’e 18 Longarm for hire. Very reasonable rates

Paper lace and old tools ‘Paper lace’ was once used as a decoration in kitchens and on the shelves over fireplaces in many homes. There are several recently-cut pieces of paper lace in Bankfoot House. They were made by Ethel Burgess, a descendent of the original owners of the House. Paper lace was made out of old newspapers. Uncut newspaper lined the actual shelf while the attached ‘lace’ section hung down in front. “When I was young I used to make paper lace with grandma at weekends or on school holidays,” Ethel said. (Grandma was Clementina Burgess nee Grigor.) After folding a sheet of newspaper seven or eight times, you cut it out in a certain shape, depending on what design you want, she said. “We’d cut it out, then take the items off the shelf, dust the shelf, and lay down the new paper lace.” But paper lace wasn’t used in the best rooms, Ethel said. “In the sitting room there would be proper lace and doilies.

In contrast to refinements inside the house, a shed at Bankfoot House that used to be the dairy holds a fascinating array of old tools, implements and pieces of equipment - adzes, cross-cut saws, axes, cattle brands, wedges, bullock yokes, hand planes and timber ‘stamps’ for marking timber in the bush. (See above photo of Jack Ferris’s stamp, ‘JF’.) There is even a wooden human shoulder yoke for fetching water from the nearby creek. William Smith Burgess carried out his own blacksmithing, as did William Grigor before him. Hence in the shed there are also stirrups, a mechanical bellows, bridles and a tool for pulling out horseshoe nails. “William Smith Burgess never drove a car, even when he was a Shire Councillor. He always rode a horse. To go to council meetings he rode his horse to the family horse paddock near the railway station in Coonowrin Road, where he caught the train to Landsborough,” Ethel said.

Doing Business

The secret to successful aging

While the doctors at Living Well Chiropractic enjoy working with patients of all ages, they especially enjoy youthful senior citizens who understand that the secret to successful aging is in the conditioning of the body and mind. Proper nervous system control of your body with chiropractic care won't make you a teenager, but it can help you stay active and enjoy life. It's a scientific fact that your brain, spinal cord and the rest of your nerves control every aspect of your body. Hinder the vital nerve links between your brain and your body, and ill health can result. A common source of interference comes from the moving bones that encase the 'information super highway' of your spinal cord. This can distort nerve messages between your body and your brain. The result? Pain, numbness, weakness or the under-performance of organs and tissues. Specific chiropractic spinal adjustments can help improve brain / body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body. With offices open each day in Landsborough and at Sippy Downs you won’t need to travel far, they also have lower exam and adjustment fees. There are no out of pocket fees for exercise instructions or digital X-ray service (bulk billed to Medicare) and for the month of August remedial massage therapy, is being offered at a discounted introductory rate. At Living Well Chiropractic they use manual techniques, electrical activator and adjusting table with drop mechanism, which are all essential in working with senior citizens, to ensure a safe and gentle adjustment (even if you have osteoporosis). And use digital postural analysis equipment to analyze changes. Don’t wait for a backache to get you to schedule a checkup. Call today at 5459 1883 to schedule a new patient consultation. Let us show you how chiropractic can increase your quality of life.

Homemade Cakes, Slices & Biscuits

What’s new at Cedarhouse Homewares With Cecily and Colin

The trend to do home baking for young families has grown Cupcake and Cookie Decorator Set $18.95 dramatically in the past few years. Young creative mums, no longer bake a cake for a birthday, they design, amazing shapes. We are happy to help create lady beetles, Spongebob, butterflies, nautical themed and Megatron cupcakes to name a few. We love to help, providing practical solutions for the more ingenious ideas. Quality bake ware, in non stick is a popular choice, the silicone range of moulds, and tools give a professional finish. Cupcakes are still popular, as the variations are endless, the cupcake measure allows even mixture dispensed in each cup. The cupcake corer, simple to use, so fillings can be added easily. ‘Avanti’ cookie and icing nozzle set in quality stainless steel is a good investment for decorative styles at $42.95. Winter days have brought out the stock pots, and roasting pans, for hearty soups, casseroles and roasts. In stock at present is a quality Raco range, with an amazing 50 per cent discount on offer, all prices on the product is the reduced price. The contemporary stainless steel range suits all cooking surfaces including, induction. My favourite piece is the Risotto pan, with a non stick interior, tempered glass lid and only $79.95, that’s brilliant. Colin’s favourite is a range I call the London Bus, there is only a teapot, mugs, salt and pepper, and money box left, so be quick for the novelty gift. Family inspired ‘Willow Tree’ figurines are quite popular for special someone gifts; keep a look out for some new images for the Christmas season, my favourite in stock at present is called the ‘quilt’ it represents the security a mother gives to a child. This month marks our second birthday in the Beerwah Village; you may have noticed our new sign on Simpson Street. The two years have seen the shop grow both in size and the kitchenware range. We would like to thank the people of Beerwah and surrounding townships for shopping locally. Cecily and Colin

On July 14 Peachester QCWA welcomed members and guests from other branches to their AGM. A delightful luncheon was served prior to the meeting which was chaired by Nambour North Coast Divisional President Joy Coulson. Yearly reports were presented by President Joan Kropp, Treasurer Bev Wild and International Officer Margaret Ferris. Margaret was guest speaker, speaking about her life. What a busy lady! The new executive of our branch is Coral Beutel President, Vice President Joan Kropp, Secretary Margaret Ferris, Bev Wild Treasurer and Cath Howitt International Officer. Six successful markets have been held since last July. Our next one is on September 24. Any charitable organisation who would like to run the canteen for themselves, please ring Coral by August 25. We catered for Nellie Bond’s funeral. Nellie was a former member. Our birthday was celebrated at Gowinta Farms. Three members attended a conference at the Masonic Lodge in Brisbane in October and our branch was very proud of Margaret Wallace who won grand champion in the photography section. Our Xmas party was held at ‘Simply Spoilt’ Peachester. An enjoyable day with Santa Claus delivering gifts to all who attended. Joan Kropp, Margaret Ferris and Coral Beutel were guests at the Peachester State School graduation night when two $50.00 bursaries were presented to Year 7 students. These Bursary’s have been given since 1991. In the New Year we catered for a 70th birthday and helped at a local wedding. Members Bev Wild, Margaret Wallace, and Coral Beutel helped with the mammoth task of sorting donated items for the flood appeal. On March 24 members helped with the large CWA expo held at Nambour where all that CWA does was displayed. In April we catered for 90 floral art enthusiasts in Margaret Ferris’s garden. What a day! The garden was full of arrangements. Weird and wonderful. Thank you! To Pam Innes, Graham and Una Riddel and Jill Horseborough from Peachester Horticultural Society for their help. Piano music CD’s were given to the soldiers memorial hospital to commemorate ANZAC day. Mother’s day saw our members with Beerwah enjoying a delightful luncheon at Pasta D’Vine. On May 31 was international day which we shared with Beerwah Branch. The school children’s work once again created a lot of interest. Guest speakers George Woodward and Sue Brumpton gave us an insight into life in East Timor. Norma Lovelace State archivist and representative on the ACWW Council (Associated Country Women of the World) spoke about the work being done throughout the world. On June 21 the division finals were held in Peachester Hall. Our members aquitted themselves well in all competitions. Good luck ladies as your entries go on to state - $550.00 was raised that day at a biggest morning tea for cancer. Thank you to all who attended. We have attended other CWA functions, paid all our commitments, donations totalled over $1,200.00. Thank you to all members for their interest and hard work throughout the year, especially the men folk. God bless, and I hope we can continue to serve you all in true friendship.

Peachester District Horticulture Society Inc

Contributed by Pauline Clarke, Publicity Officer

At our July meeting, members had great pleasure welcoming representatives from neighbouring garden clubs who joined with us to celebrate our Friendship Day. Guest speaker Jon Flanigan, from 'Coucals' of Mt Crosby, entertained us with projected images of gardens she and husband Jim had visited over the years, mainly Canada, Europe and China. Jan explained that the inspiration and ideas from their trips enabled them to develop their own garden, 'Coucals', which will be open to the public in September as part of the Open Garden Scheme.

Contributed by Patricia Bradford (Publicity Officer)

Another beautiful warm and sunny day saw the View Club visiting Cobb and Co on Old Gympie Road. We had morning tea and damper and a most informative talk by Steve who gave us the gossip on the travellers in the 1860s who used Cobb and Co to journey between Brisbane and the Gympie gold fields. Then we ventured across the road to Bankfoot House where we were entertained and given the family history by Ron, Helen, Ann, Elaine, Robyn and Jocelyn. These two venues are well worth a visit and thanks to all who made it such an enjoyable day.

Diane Elliot (Ambassador), Coral Beutel and Cath Howitt (P.D.H.S) Holding some prize winning entries

The next View Club meeting will be held on August 17 at the Glasshouse Mountains Sports Club at 11.00am for an 11.30am start. We will be entertained by Lauren Brisbane who will discuss her favourite pastimecamels! Anyone who would like to join the View Club would be most welcome. Please contact Joy on 5439 9049 or Lydia on 5438 7894 who will be pleased to supply any further information about the club. View clubs are a valued part of the Smith Family which is a national, independent children’s charity committed to helping disadvantaged Australian children by unlocking opportunities through education and support.

Rotary update The Glasshouse Country Rotary Club was part of the ‘Splendour in the Grass’ event in Woodford. Have our Rotarians gone hippie? Not really, but our local Rotary Club, under the leadership of our ex-President George McKenzie took up the big challenge to feed the visitors at the Splendour event. A huge challenge, since meals were served from 6.00am to midnight, non-stop. George organised the help from the Maleny Rotary Club

Diane Elliot, as Ambassador of Queensland Garden Clubs also spoke briefly. There were a large number of raffle prizes to be drawn and some lucky winners took home two or three prizes. Thanks go to all those who donated prizes and a big thank you to all members who worked very hard to make our Friendship Day so successful. There were many compliments from visitors. After lunch some members and visitors enjoyed a visit to the gardens of Colin and Ann Parker and Joan Kropp. Results of the competition bench for June, tie 1st Coral Beutel and Cath Howitt.

This shows once again that working together to achieve a goal is heaps more effective than each one going it alone. Yes, we have to split the income, but then, alone we would have had nothing. All proceeds will go to help people in need, to support our local community and to support some International Rotary projects. The Glasshouse Country Rotary club meets Mondays at the Beerwah Hotel. If you would like to participate in our club or simply come to check it out, please contact 0431 829 119 for catering purposes. We are only a small club but we are big in delivering outcomes; saying that, we need the member numbers to achieve all our goals (and there are many). Fellowship amongst our members is high on the agenda, so it is not all about work but also about having fun together. We are looking forward to welcome any guests.

Stop the craziness

Love or hate them, John Howard and Peter Costello left their political seat in credit with a healthy economy, less unemployment, homes for families etc. The politicians in this country have become a joke. The rising cost of everyday living on families, so that two incomes aren’t enough, is pushing people to their limit, filling homes with stress and hopelessness, causing crime, and an increase of violence, people are full of entitlement to take or hurt others, what next - anarchy? As one of my own who has been through tough times on a pension, I know how I got myself through, but to have a family and children, the added stress of having to feed kids porridge for dinner wouldn’t have done. I think they should implement a price freeze on everything, stop all price wars, grabs for cash, big food stores, petrol prices, rate hikes, car rego, electricity, everything! The people are paying up big for political over spending, there is no calm, just more added stress on people. As I said, the fear and added pressure of not being able to make ends meet is increasing crime. Talk about senseless allocation of funds, the announcement of spending 1 million on Bankfoot House by the council. It might be close and dear to their hearts, but do we the rate payers get a say? The town of Beerwah could have a total makeover, the road to Landsborough on Beerwah’s side could be totally made new. Bankfoot house has been there for 100 years and will still be there for another 100 years. What a waste! Surely a $100,000, and the rest on the towns of the hinterlands would be a bigger improvement and for more people? I think everyone should stop and take a reality check, we are not in a movie, this not TV, it’s real people, real lives, real families. You’re supporting crime. Soon the only people with a job will be criminals and police. I wouldn’t vote for any of the politicians of today, even if my life depended on it, and for all of us, it does. It makes or breaks countries. I am nearly 60 and think there shouldn’t be homeless, poverty, or crime in Australia, the lucky country. In reality there may be cyber bullying and people being more hurtful out there, for god’s sake turn around. It’s a shambles. If you’re watching, your not seeing, if you’re listening you’re not hearing, does anyone care? C. Argo Beerwah

Glasshouse village restoration

It depends on who you speak to as to what the feelings are with this restoration of our little village here at Glass House Mountains. Let’s think about what has already been done, just 18



AUGUST 10 2011

in the village area. (a) A nice new expensive visitor information centre with various attachments, such as parking, a bridge and the kid’s playground. (b) The new monument or whatever you feel like calling it. It appears the electricity has finally been connected, however, no illumination. Now we are getting a new entrance to the shopping area of the village, even a spot for the travelling caravan’s. (But, sorry No Parking any time!) I remember the Australian Red Cross Blood Bank van being forced out because it was taking up customer parking spaces on the one day every three months it operated here in Glass House. Yet I believe there are even less parking spaces, according to one lady I was speaking with, but nothing said or complained about that I am aware of. I was shocked to see the men laying turf last week. Yes, that’s right, turf. Grass being the old original word. We all know what is required of grass, especially in the summer months in this area we live in. Has anyone thought about that, the mowing of the grass? Why I say that is the grass medium strip at our main intersection is always in a shocking state. Even when mown, the grass and rubbish is left scattered all over the road, they obviously do not know what a catcher is or how to clean up after themselves. Kiss our attempt at the Cleanest or Tidiest Town in Queensland goodbye. The area surrounding the expensive visitor Information Centre is also left untidy. That monument thing says, ‘Hi, look at me, don’t look at the rubbish or grass.’ All I can say is, be very careful as to who you cast your vote for in the upcoming Council Election in 2012. Brian Stallworthy Glass House Mountains

Selling Queensland off piece by piece

Many Queenslanders already can’t afford to buy their first homes in their own state and now the Premier of our own state is promoting our homes for sale interstate. You may have missed it. It came out on the weekend, just before the flood report was due (and there probably is something suspicious about that) ... a media statement from the Premier’s Office last Saturday stating that the Queensland Government is distributing over four trillion dollars in fake $10,000 notes around Queensland and to New South Wales and Victoria. The Premier’s stated intent is to promote the Queensland Building Boost which will provide $10,000 grants as a stimulus for the construction industry. Now that’s possibly a good thing. However, the Premier is spruiking that she is sending this promotion interstate. ‘I don’t care where you live in Australia. If you want to buy an investment home you should do it in Queensland’. Excuse me? Where’s Pauline when we need a ‘please explain’? Yup – let’s sell Queensland homes off to the rest of Australia and let the Queenslanders become tenants in their own state. Don’t address the cost of housing, cost of living and other issues in Queensland which are preventing many of our Queensland families from accessing the home ownership market. Let’s just sell the place off and make Queensland a ‘serfdom’ for investors from other places. Surely one of the roles of the Queensland Government is to see to it that Queenslanders have opportunities and rights in their own state? Where does Anna Bligh think she gets the right to sell Queensland off piece by piece? This is our home state, not an investment property owned by the Labour Government. Forget selling Queensland off like lamingtons -

From the ashes

From out of the ashes, the phoenix rises. Isn’t that the expression? Well, that’s certainly true of Beerwah RSL! I had the pleasure of my first visit since its closure, last Thursday night, and what a transformation! They (whoever they are!) have worked extremely hard on this and the transformation is outstanding. The coffee bar area fronting the bar, the dining room area, the TAB and the soon to be pokie room bar have all been dealt with in an exemplary fashion. It has totally changed the look and feel of the venue and all on the positive side. The dining room now sports new tables and chairs, a ‘proper’ ordering point and an ambience that wasn’t there before. The opening up of the main area through to the TAB bar has also been dealt with very well. The new pokie room will be fantastic (even though I don’t play them myself). I don’t know what happened before with previous management or even why their lease was not renewed. What I do know now, is that this truly is a club to be proud of and I encourage all locals to try it once again, you will not be disappointed. Well done to all. P. Matthews Beerwah

Shame on you

After hearing the comments made on Today Tonight last week about Bindi Irwin, I have one thing to say – for the love of god, are you all insane? I couldn’t believe after all the Irwin’s have lost, that they have to be subjected to slandering their child. How weak and low do people stoop to out there? The Irwin family do so much for the preservation of life on this planet and for our environment – the type of activities that these slanderous people wouldn’t contemplate. If the low life’s out there are adults, they’re weaker than weak to slander a child, and too weak to pick on an adult, it’s shameful and pathetic. Name supplied Beerwah

Re - We need to act now

On July 27 I wrote a letter to the Editor encouraging locals to support the ban of the live cattle export trade. The Ban Live Export National Rally for all Australians against Animal Cruelty has been confirmed for Sunday, August 14 from 1.30pm at King George Square. If you want to make sure politicians know how we feel – make sure you are there on the day. Kaylene Mcintosh Glass House Mountains

Big thank you

I would like to say a big thank you to Mark, Nick, Adam and Stewart who were willing to give up their Saturday off to do some concreting and a very big moving job for a very sick lady that none of them knew. They were all very quick to put their hands up when they knew that this lady needed help. It is really uplifting to know that there are young people out there willing to get stuck in. Three of these guys are only in their early 20s, you know who you are, last names are not needed. Thank you very much for your help - you have helped a very sick lady’s dream become a bit closer to reality, thanks again. Pat Tenant Landsborough

In many of our Churches at this time our Sunday Gospels focus on the miracle stories of Jesus. I began to think to myself, if Jesus were alive today, he wouldn’t be allowed to get away with half the miracles he performed. It’s not just that we live in such a sceptical, rationalist age. It’s all the red tape as well. Just imagine. Turning water into wine. This would provoke immediate protests from the hoteliers association, who would argue that it was unfair competition, amounting to a monopoly. It would also be denounced by some Christian Churches (not Anglican or Catholic of course) as irresponsible and likely to lead to drunkenness. Feeding the multitude. Serving bread and fish to thousands of people at an outdoor event would require the approval of government health bodies to ensure that the food had been prepared by qualified food handlers in a hygienic environment. Baskets of leftovers would also need to be disposed of properly. Walking on water. This could only be done if it were preceded by a proper disclaimer that nobody should try this at home, particularly not children or young people.

Beerwah NHWQ AGM

The miraculous catch of fish. Fish stocks are now rigorously conserved to protect against overfishing, and such large catches would undoubtedly exceed quotas, leading to stiff penalties. Our Lord may well find himself before the courts. Well nothing really new in that is there? Healing a man born blind. This apparent act of kindness would lead to all sorts of problems with Centrelink. All disability benefits would immediately be stopped, and the man in question would probably face an investigation into whether his previous claims had been genuine. Despite the scepticism of our age and the over regulation and red tape I believe Jesus would of course achieve the same outcome, our salvation. Do not close yourself off to the miraculous! Christ has compassion for our needs. And he is able to meet our needs. And sometimes he uses us to meet the needs of others. He is able to use us in a wonderful way, if we are willing to take the little we have and let Him use it as He will. Blessings Br John OGS

Doing Dads Proud

Founding members honoured The Mountain Quilter Club Inc, which meets fortnightly on a Wednesday in the Peachester Hall, recently honoured three founding members with life membership. President Sherryl Moody presented life membership badges to Barbara Grigor, Mary McAlary and Clair Brear at a small ceremony, and the women were also given a lovely bouquet of flowers each.

There are about 70 women registered with the group, which next May will hold its biennial Quilt Show with the theme ‘Reigning Cats for Dogs’ with charity funds raised going to the Guide Dogs for the Blind training program. A representative from the group was able to be present, with a dog, at the Friendship Luncheon, to talk to members about the charity they will be supporting. The raffle quilt, which will be a special hand-made appliqué effort contributed to by most of the women, will help fund this worthwhile cause. The quilters’ group will also hold a Show and Tell Day on September 21 at the Peachester Hall, with traders and the club challenge on display for judging. A fun day is always had at this event, and interested parties are invited to attend. Morning tea and a light lunch are provided on the day.

Explore QUT Caboolture campus More than 1,000 potential students, parents and members of the community are expected to flock to Queensland University of Technology’s (QUT) Caboolture campus for a ‘real world’ look at university life when it hosts its annual Open Day on Sunday, August 21. The doors will open from 9.00am - 2.00pm offering visitors the chance to see first-hand what is on offer to students who choose to study at the Caboolture campus. Head of campus Robert Craig said the day was all about informing high school leavers and other potential students about the study options available at QUT Caboolture. “If you have ever considered future study as a pathway to a new career or to upgrade your current qualifications, the Open Day is the perfect event to explore what QUT Caboolture offers,” he said. The day will include information seminars for people looking to study nursing, creative industries, business and education courses, as well as special sessions for parents and partners.

Residents, family, staff and volunteers all contributed to make the week a huge success.


GCCC’s ‘Calamity’ a triumph! Contributed by Sandy Johnson

The first weekend of this school term saw the staging of Glasshouse Country Christian College’s production of ‘Calamity Jane’. The performances were the result of many months of rehearsal and planning. Cast auditioned for major roles at the end of last year and the whole cast and crew has been hard at work since early February for afternoon, weekend and holiday rehearsals. The major ‘Dress Rehearsal’ performance on Thursday, July 21 for special guests from Glasshouse Country Care and Embracia Nursing Home and Retirement Village, was very well received. Their glowing feedback for both the quality of the production and the professional level of catering provided were an adrenalin boost for all involved as the matinee and evening performances rolled on. The three additional performances were well supported by the College community with over 300 tickets sold. Principal Mike Curtis, who was called upon to fill a cameo role himself, stated that it was wonderful to see the varied talents of the young people of the College appreciated by so many. The cast and crew certainly gave it their all with an energetic final performance on the Saturday evening that had the capacity audience laughing along and tapping their feet.

Repairs to Peachester Road (further update) Following the update I provided in my column last month, I had many of you contact me to communicate your frustration that works to repair Peachester Road are not expected to start until sometime before Christmas. I completely understand how frustrating this would be for residents and I thank you for your ongoing patience thus far. The Department of Transport and Main Roads have advised that repairs to this road are part of flood recovery works which would go a long way to explaining the delays. From all reports I have been given, the Main Roads’ crews have been working additional hours all over the state in an effort to get flood restoration projects completed. There are actually quite a few main roads within the Glass House electorate that were similarly affected by the floods and they too still have lights in operation guiding traffic and one in particular is still completely closed. After receiving feedback from so many residents, I wrote to the Minister for Main Roads asking that he reassess the priority of this project so that works can be undertaken as far away from the wet season as possible. I will inform residents again once I have a reply from the Minister.

It was great to be able to host Australian political legend Bronwyn Bishop as a special guest of a number of functions in Fisher last week. Mrs Bishop spoke at a breakfast at Beerwah, visited aged care facilities in Maleny and also Caloundra, and was keynote speaker at the 11th annual Sunshine Coast Seniors Forum.

Small Business forum -

With economic conditions adding further challenges to small business, Shadow Minister for Small Business Bruce Billson will speak at a small business forum on August 30 at Lake Kawana Community Centre. Contact my office on 5444 4888 for details and to make bookings for catering purposes.

Walk Festival - The Sunshine Coast Walk Festival will be held from August 19 - 28. One of the main events of the festival is The Montville Walks Day on Sunday, August 21. An interesting feature of the Montville Walks Day is the ‘Artists in Residence Walk’ which will feature a potter, oil painter, wood turner, bead making and many more local artists. For further information, visit the website

Parent Support - As a father of two children I know that being a parent is a wonderful, exciting experience with many challenges– unfortunately, as said many times ‘parenting does not come with a manual’ and sometimes parents need help – Lifeline Sunshine Coast is currently offering free parent support counselling sessions you can phone Lifeline on 5409 2600 for more information.

Flag presentation - I finally made it along to a meeting of the Beerwah-Peachester RSL Sub Branch Women’s Auxiliary. It gave me the greatest pleasure to meet with them for a cuppa and present the group with a new Queensland Flag. These lovely ladies have happily told me they will fly their flag with pride. If you are a community group and you need a new flag, make sure you contact my office and we can arrange one for you, Andrew Powell presents the Queensland flag to Kay Farrell

ASSET LEVELS INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT A new generation of borrowers is finding it increasingly challenging to secure a home loan, despite having the financial means to meet repayments. While the level of assets a borrower has acquired, or net asset position, has always influenced the way banks lend money, this has become increasingly more important in recent months, according to Smartline Personal Mortgage Adviser Teresa Harrison. Teresa said a number of factors were assessed to avoid

the possibility of default in borrowers who have a high income but low net assets.

“From the banks’ perspective, a borrower’s income to net assets ratio goes to the core of their character,” Teresa explains.

your assets, that is acceptable to lenders, but if you are 50 with no assets and you earn $150,000 the banks are going to question why that is the case,” Teresa said.

Teresa said the older a borrower was, the higher the net asset position banks expected to see. Similarly, the higher your income, the greater the banks’ expectation that you will have built up a substantial level of assets over the space of 15, 20 or 30 years of employment.

“It all comes back to perceptions around character – if you haven’t built a solid net asset position by middle age, the view of the banks is that Call Teresa Harrison on you are unlikely to do so. 5422 9458 or 0410 648 098

“If you’re the sort of person who can convert your revenue into wealth – or assets – it demonstrates to the lender that you are the type of person who is likely to make your home loan repayments.

BeeGee’s Soccer News Contributed by Frank Doonan

The club had a big Saturday morning with 91 under six teams playing here which is approximately 500 players plus parents and guardians. I would like to thank all the volunteers for their hard work from setting up to cleaning up - without your help a day like this could not run smoothly. We had 21 fields to set up, barbecue to take care of and marshals to help people. We also had seven competitive games to run on field 1. The proudest part of the day for me was the help that came from our younger club members, like the young ladies from the under 16’s and the fella’s from the under 17’s plus all the senior players that took part on the day. This shows the spirit of the club is strong and well. With the season coming to an end we will be having presentations for all our players, small sided players will be August 20 from 1.00pm – 5.00pm. There will be lots of games to play, the children love the break up, Juniors will be September 17, 1.00pm start, Seniors will be September 17, 5.00pm start until late. Cost is $25.00 per head, if you want tickets please contact me on 0419 757 584, everyone is welcome. AUGUST 10 2011 |

Action from the Beerwah v Bribie U18 Game on Sunday

Get behind Mooloolah United By Lea Parkes

If you enjoy watching a good live game of soccer you will want to make sure you are at the Mooloolah Soccer ground on Tuesday, August 16 from 7.30pm for kick off. The Mooloolah United team are taking on the Churches Under 18 Queensland representative team at the Mooloolah Connection Road soccer ground on (behind the Bowls Club). Club President, Simon Smith is keen to spur the fellas along – and is encouraging local fans to come along in their purple and black with their loud voices and to show their support. The Mooloolah United team has an interesting history and it is a real achievement and honour for them to have been asked to play the representative team. In 2010 the Under 16 Mooloolah Falcons Churches soccer team faced a very bleak future and a group of players who had become friends were faced with having to split up because of the large age difference. However they were determined to stay together and their then coach, Ian Wakely, realised that

the only option for these boys was for a few of the fathers and a couple of new players to join them, and then they could register in 2011 as a senior men’s team. This was a huge step for them considering that one of their players had to get an exemption as he would only be turning 15, three of the players would be 16, two would be 17, and four were turning 18. Their journey then became harder when they thought they would go into a B grade league, but unfortunately for them there was only one league, and they would be facing A grade teams as well as B grade. During the course of this season they have lost two games, drawn five and won five. They have a big challenge ahead of them on Tuesday night. The parents, manager, coach, club and supporters could not be prouder of the team – win, lose or draw. Well done lads, you have played the season with guts, skill, dedication and the best sport ethic you could wish for. Go Mooloolah United.

A little later in the day, the doctor calls George’s wife. “Ethel,” he says, “George is doing fine! But I had to call you because I’m in awe of his relationship with God. Is it true that he gets up during the night and poof! The light goes on in the bathroom, and when he’s done, poof! The light goes off?” “Oh my God!” Ethel exclaims. “He’s peeing in the fridge again!” Submitted by Des Holmsquest, Landsborough

LEO July 23 – August 22



A 90-year-old man goes for a physical. All of his tests come back with normal results. The doctor says, “George, everything looks great. How are you doing mentally and emotionally? Are you at peace with God?” George replies, “God and I are tight. He knows I have poor eyesight, so he’s fixed it so when I get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, poof! The light goes on. When I’m done, poof! The light goes off.” “Wow, that’s incredible,” the doctor says.
