Hi Everyone

I

t isn’t often that we have ‘reality television celebrities’ hanging out locally, so I reckon that there will be plenty of excitement when Brad and Dale from The Block drop into Mitre 10 at Mooloolah next week. I totally understand that if you haven’t enjoyed what the renovation television show has to offer, you will have no idea why this is so exciting. While not an avid fan, I have been an intermittent viewer. Mostly I just like to see the reveal shows – where there are the ‘ahhh this is just amazing’ coming from the judges or better still – the ‘what were they thinking’? Both these contestants come across as competitive, and they

Wishing well symbol of hope By Lea Parkes

Landsborough locals Bridgette and Paula Powers, known as the Twinnies, have one really big wish and that is to have a permanent home to their Pelican and Seabird Rescue Centre. While their passion runs deep and they have plenty of fans throughout the community, to make their wish a reality they know they need a lot of financial support to make it happen. One Beerwah resident Yvonne Taylor, has been inspired by the dedication of the girls, and is keen to assist the fundraising effort, creating a quirky

addition to her front garden. Yvonne and her husband Steve have built ‘Twin Wishing Wells’ in the garden at 13 Parkside Drive and Yvonne is encouraging locals to drop in their donations to help assist the Twinnies wish (their property can be accessed via the pathway from the Beerwah Marketplace). Last Wednesday, Yvonne invited along local politicians to get them to show their support for the importance of the work the girls undertake. Mayor Mark Jamieson, and Councillor Rick Baberowski officially launched the wishing wells. The Twinnes wanted to thank Yvonne and Stephen for constructing and organising the wishing wells, the mayor and councillor for supporting the initiative, and key sponsors, Community Recycling Inc, Crazy Clarks, Coastal Signs & Printing, Eliminated Pest Management, Jeff and Ann Ross and Mal Brough for his $100.00 donation. The Twinnies have a number of other fundraising opportunities in the coming months and GCNews will keep you updated on them, including a huge open day on May 18. Mayor Mark Jamieson, with Bridgette and Paula Powers, Cr Rick Baberowski and local resident Yvonne Taylor who has installed twin wishing wells in her front garden to raise funds for the Twinnies Pelican and Sea Bird Rescue

March in March Residents of the Sunshine Coast who have concerns about the need for stronger action on climate change can attend the Beerwah ‘March in March’ rally in Brisbane on Sunday, March 16. "The rally commences at 11.30am, and is being held in Queens Park, George Street, behind the Treasury Casino," said Sunshine Coast Environment Council spokesperson Vivien Griffin. "We know that many people are concerned about climate change, but are unsure how they can be involved. Attending this event will show policy makers that the community cares. This is especially so for the Sunshine Coast, which has been identified as particularly vulnerable to climate change, including impacts on coastal tourism, hinterland bushfires and increased flooding in many regions." "My family is going to the March in March," said Ian Edwards. "My wife and I want our son to be able to enjoy what we have had. We need healthy oceans and to protect the Great Barrier Reef. I don’t want him burdened with the costs of dealing with beach erosion, drought, bush fires, and road and bridge repair from floods as a result of too little action now." "I respect what science is telling us, and we want to see serious leadership from the Australian

Three generations of the Edwards family show their concern about climate change government. How can we expect developing economies such as China and India to reduce their emissions if we do not show that we are also prepared to do the hard yards?" Ms Griffin said that the Environment Council was encouraging people to travel to the rally by carpooling or travelling by train. "The train goes from Nambour at 8.43am and stops at all stations, arriving in Brisbane at 10.33am. We encourage everyone who is going to meet up at Anzac Square at 10.45am, so that a strong contingent from the coast can go to the rally together." Further information on the rally is available by telephoning 0407 116 105 or email climateaction@scec.org.au

Skate park out of action Beerwah Skate Park will be closed from March 6 for four weeks and is expected to reopen on April 1. Council is making modifications to the shade structure in advance of the shade net being re-instated.

Good idea, but why here?

By Greg Brown

Last year, GCNews detailed how, at a Sunshine Coast Council general meeting on May 23 Council considered a report on noisy and hard to locate sports under a veil of secrecy as a ‘confidential agenda item’. Nothing more was heard, so most people would assume that no news is good news. However, it appears that the Queensland state government may have taken it out of the hands of Council, for according to the Sunshine Coast Environment Council (SCEC), they have secretly decided to push through a noisy motorsports precinct on a large tract of a local environmental reserve without consultation. SCEC spokesperson Narelle McCarthy says they are concerned that a significant area of the Beerwah State Forest at Glenview may be given the go-ahead to be stripped of its protected status with no community consultation. In response to questions put to Minister Dickson (Minister for National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing), it was confirmed that the government have been assessing a number of possible locations. “The government investigated a number of locations, including Beerwah State Forest, to determine a suitable location for a motor sports facility which would help deter off-road motorbike users from illegal riding in national parks,” said the Minister. “Preliminary investigations have been undertaken and market sounding will be conducted to determine interested parties.”

Dirtbikes will be catered for in the Glenview proposal And with the area being directly adjacent to that which is already earmarked for clearing to make way for the mega-intersection of Steve Irwin way and the Bruce Highway, the future for many rare and threatened native species appears dire. According to Ms McCarthy, the idea for a motorsports park is a good one for the region, but just not in the proposed forest location. “State government appears to be pushing through yet another proposal under a veil of secrecy which will impact on important areas of the Sunshine Coast’s conservation and open space network.

“We recognise motorsports are part of the many recreational opportunities offered by the region. However, there are potentially other, more appropriate sites which could accommodate these activities without using public assets and valuable green space,” she said. In response, Minister Dickson said that the public will be consulted on the decision. “State Planning Regulatory Provision requirements entail that community consultation must be undertaken for such a facility to progress and market testing through an EOI process will provide another opportunity to gauge interest in the site,” said Minister Dickson. SCEC maintains that the Beerwah State Forest contains endangered ecosystems found in few other places within the region representing an irreplaceable contribution to the biodiversity of the Sunshine Coast. It also contains significant koala habitat and supports federally listed species. “The economic relevance of our protecting our natural assets for tourism, lifestyle and regional identity is also being undermined,” Ms McCarthy said. “Minister Dickson needs to come clean with the Sunshine Coast community. He needs to understand that foisting proposals such as this and other commercial activities into high conservation areas and our precious few National Parks is not on. To do so without proper consultation, due process or the consideration of alternatives sites further shows he is not acting in the public interest.”

MOOLOOLAH DENTAL SURGERY David Zimmermann Mark Hall

Phone 5494 7011

After almost two years since the collapse of the Mooloolah Valley Sports Club, the Glenview facility is about to be resurrected by John Pearson, a Sunshine Coast businessman with prior links to the area. In fact, John was a patron of the old club when he lived in Mooloolah for over eight years, and he has major plans to bring the club back to life as a family-friendly venue. Once the contract settles on March 19, John says that he’s itching to get in and start the massive renovations that are needed. “I’ll basically be starting from scratch!” “There’ll be new ceilings, new floors, new bars, new furnishings … new everything,” he said. “There’s a lot of work to be done, that’s for sure. But it’s not like I haven’t done it all before.” John has started, run and successfully operated accommodation and hospitality centres before – some much larger that what the club will become. “I’m hoping that from opening day, locals will come in and see that it will look totally different from the old days. “I’m looking to create a safe and secure family-friendly venue where people can come to have dinner and a quiet drink, with low-key entertainment,” he said. The space will become a great function centre for weddings, parties and special occasions, and John says he’s looking forward to all the local sporting groups being able to have a space available again for their meetings, presentations and events.

“I’m really pleased to be able to offer the bowls club use of the facilities, and it would be great to see new faces joining the bowls club now that they have certainty of using the greens and the facilities.” John is currently talking with the gaming authorities to have Keno and TAB facilities, but at this stage pokies aren’t part of the plan. Targeting an opening day around the start of July, John is certain that he’s on the right track. “I’m pretty confident that if you do things right and do right by the patrons that people will come back to the venue and once again it will become an integral part of the local community,” he said. And with the jobs that will be created, there are only positives for the local area that will flow from this new phase in the life of the venue.

Andrew Powell’s mobile office is on the road again Member for Glass House Andrew Powell MP has always committed to holding regular mobile offices throughout the Glass House electorate so that residents could easily access him when they needed assistance on state matters. “Mobile offices are a way of identifying the main issues across our community and allow me to assist individual cases and try to offer solutions where appropriate. “I am pleased to announce that the first round of mobile offices for 2014 will begin on Friday, March 21 in Eudlo and Glass House Mountains,” Mr Powell said. The schedule for Friday, March 21 is as follows 7.30am to 8.45am @ Eudlo (Kids playground

near Eudlo State School, Rosebed Street.) 3.00pm to 4.30pm @ Glass House Mountains (Glasshouse Mountains Information Centre.) “A mobile office is a great way for locals to have their say without travelling to my Maleny electorate office,” Mr Powell said. “I made a promise very early on that I would always be approachable and available for constituents and I will certainly continue to do this while I am the local member. “Keep checking my website, www.andrewpowell. com.au for further locations and dates in 2014, but in the meantime if I can help anyone with a state matter, please don’t hesitate to make contact with my office,” Mr Powell concluded.

“Household solar will save MORE than it costs.”

(Source: REC Agents Association Report on Electricity Prices, February 2014)

According to this research, a 3kW solar system on a house will reduce the power bill in Queensland by an average of 52%. The research says the solar industry has created 18,500 jobs and 4,500 solar businesses in Australia. Another report by the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) outlines power price increases and why they have happened since July 2011.

Facts: Wholesale and retail costs have added 52% to the bill total, 40% to maintain poles and wires, 5% for “other costs”, 3% for the RET (Renewable Energy Target) which is for the large and small scale STCs or RECs which every solar owner has received. But here is the important part. Most of the STCs and RECs have gone to LARGE SCALE solar arrays for the big companies i.e. 10, 20 or 100 acres of solar panels. Guess how much of the RECs or

STCs have gone to the HOUSEHOLD solar systems – yes 0.8%, NOT EVEN 1% of everyone’s electricity bill has gone towards paying the Government subsidy for each household solar system. Now, the organisation that made this report is the “head honcho” in the electricity pricing section for national grid distribution. So they should not have a political agenda. You have noticed by now that Labor, the Greens and the Coalition are diametrically opposed to renewable energy and green house gasses, so whatever each of them say, has a political bias. And both sprout plenty of “bull dust”, including our current Queensland politicians. So if the Coalition, strongly supported by our own State Government, finalise the RET and cease the STC or REC subsidy to households, then the 0.8% that every electricity consumer contributes towards

the Government subsidy may cease, and your power bill could drop accordingly (by 0.8%, big deal). But then the State and Federal Government will need to raise more than 0.8% from households to pay for many of the 18,5000 jobs who decide to leave the industry and many of the 4,500 solar businesses which close down. State and Federal Governments HAPPILY, JOYFULLY and WILLINGLY spend YOUR money subsidising industries, projects and activities that employ people that suit THEIR POLITICAL AGENDA, but when a GOOD IDEA comes from the OTHER POLITICAL PARTY, then it automatically is considered an unnecessary expense.

This is just a glimpse of some of the LARGE solar systems in Australia Artists impression

Solar Choice has already received approval The 20-megawatt Royalla solar farm will be built in Tuggeranong ACT, bounded to the west by for one of Australia's largest solar farms south of Toowoomba near Millmerran. The the Rob Roy Nature Reserve. The solar farm proposal will contribute to a reduction of project could take four to five years to around 560,000 tonnes of carbon emissions over complete. It is expected to generate up to one Gigawatt (= 22000 homes)of power. The 20 years, generating the equivalent amount of energy to power 4400 Canberra homes. The Bulli Creek Solar Farm will be built next to the Bulli Creek substation, one of the largest Royalla solar farm will directly contribute to meeting the greenhouse gas emission reduction projects in the country. The farm could be targets set by the ACT government. generating electricity by 2015-2016.

AGL and Solar First (Australia) Pty Ltd, are proposing to deliver two large-scale solar PV power projects with a total nominal capacity of 150 mW. These projects will be located at Nyngan (100 mW) and Broken Hill (50 mW) both sited in regional NSW, construction on the Nyngan project will begin in March 2014. Other large scale projects by AGL are also in the wings.

How will these projects effect the domestic market?

Power bills are higher as a result of these large scale projects. It is the large scale projects that add 2.2% to the cost of your power bill. The small domestic installation of solar adds only 0.8%.

Business News Win win for school and community Contributed by Kylie Merola We all know the important role local businesses play in our community. Landsborough State School P&C strongly believes in supporting our local businesses. So recently, when the school Tuckshop was in need of new screens, they immediately contacted Landsborough Screens for a quote. Not only was the quote very competitively priced, the staff from Landsborough Screens was extremely pleasant and reliable. Tuckshop convenor, Vicky Van De Vorst, is delighted with her new tuckshop screens. The innovative design of the screens means they can be operated with ease. They can be closed during food preparation to keep the flies and nasties away, but then are easily opened when it is time for counter service. One of the screens was damaged during a recent act of vandalism and Landsborough Screens kindly replaced it at no charge. Vicky said by supporting local business with our dollars, they support us with their community partnership.

What is Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce giving you? Thrilled with the new screens, Tuckshop convenor Vicky (centre), thanks Keith, Allan, John and Harry from Landsborough Screens “Some may call this ‘win, win’, our P&C like to call it ‘community, community’. We support many local businesses each year,” she said. “They all offer competitive prices and service hard to find elsewhere.” Your thoughtful local purchases have much more power than many may realise. By making those purchases, you are giving a real gift to those businesses while helping to build a strong local economy.

MARCH 12 2014

Almost every day the GCCoC receives a request from a community member to address issues of concern. These requests have to be assessed within in the objectives of the chamber. The chamber is not a progress association, that is not to say that the members are not progressive. This is so far from the truth. You will have seen in GCNews that Mal Brough is conducting an information session on communications. Last week I attended a working group to evaluate the capacity of fiber optic systems to support high speed broadband on the Sunshine Coast; it was mind blowing to see how much under utilised capacity is available now. Broadband technology and innovation is now one of the key objectives of CCIQ Sunshine Coast Chamber Alliance. The access to this technology will provide a significant boost to business opportunities in Glasshouse Country. The pressure of numbers is the advantage of being aligned with a larger lobby group. What can the GCCoC do about the operation of the Glass House Mountains Visitor Information Centre? The perception is that it’s not supporting the local community and tourism. The shortage of staff is restricting the opening hours which is unfortunate. The business community says the previous ‘Yellow Caravan’ did a better job than the modern facility that is now under utilised. The VIC is operated by Sunshine Coast Destination Limited (SCDL) funded by a percentage of the tourism levy collected by council. The chamber has recently become a member of SCDL, this will now allow the business community to provide input on behalf of the chamber members. The chamber will be encouraging all businesses who rely on visitors to Glasshouse Country to become a member of SCDL so your voice can be heard. Community safety - the GCCoC has been working with Mal Brough to secure funding from the Federal Government to support community safety. A letter to GCNews recently commented on the transparency of the tendering process. If any community member is involved with the CCTV technology please contact the chamber, this is your community and your safety. Following several break and enters recently, the chamber has been working with the local police to implement measures to protect local premises both commercial and domestic. The March general meeting will focus on this partnership. This week will see the team of students from the USC commence working on the Beerwah Project. They will be looking at all Glasshouse Country communities that rely on Beerwah as the major centre. The project will build on the Place + Project, CBD upgrade and the Beerwah Village Project, and what the community should focus on to create a future vibrancy for this revitalised modern rural town. The next Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce meeting will be on: Wednesday, March 19 from 5.30pm at Glasshouse Country RSL Cnr Reed Street and Steve Irwin Way Glass House Mountains

School News Students clean up

Contributed by Kylie Merola Landsborough State School students have demonstrated their support for caring for the environment through participating in the school's Clean Up Australia Day recently. They embraced the challenge of keeping their school grounds and local community litter free. Students took a break from class, then went to work picking up rubbish. Those in Prep to Year 3 were given designated areas in and around their school to clean up. The Year 4 to Year 7 students ventured out of the school grounds to clean up the streets and parks of Landsborough township. Items found included fast food containers, plastic bags, straws, bottles, cans, bits of clothing, cigarette butts, food wrappers and bits of timber. Principal Kristy Walton said the school worked hard to promote sustainability. Inspiring children to care for the environment was a vital part of Clean Up Australia Day.

A happy tail!

The children at Landsborough Child Care Centre recently had a visit from RSPCA volunteers Leah and Libby. They came into the centre with their toy dog Bob and taught the children how to care for their pets. They discussed the importance of loving and being gentle with all animals as well as feeding, washing and exercising them so that they live a long and Izzy, Lincoln, Chloe and Kade practicing their pet care knowledge happy life.

Getting their hands dirty

Contributed by Rae Josland The ‘Clean Up Australia Day’ organisation’s aim ‘to inspire and work with communities to clean up, fix up and conserve our environment’, is clearly being heard by the students of Beerwah High. On Saturday, March 1, Beerwah High’s Student Council held its annual clean up day. At 8.00am on Saturday morning a collection of Beerwah High staff, students and extra helpers put on their gloves, grabbed their bags and prepared to walk

Through the visit, the children are developing an awareness of the impact that human activity has on living things and their environment, as well as developing a respect for all living things. The children raised $120.00 for the RSPCA on the day. Landsborough Child Care Centre also proudly sponsors a pen at the Sippy Creek Animal Refuge.

through the school to make a difference. It was great to see such a team effort and students and staff covered the entire school grounds, outdoor classroom and the carpark and front footpath. The day included some interesting finds such as a wallet that held a Beerwah High I.D. Card from a student in the graduating class of 2000. It was definitely a successful and enjoyable community event that left the school not only looking better but feeling better as well.

After working for other financial institutions and the corporate sector of Bank of Queensland, Debbie and her husband Jeff decided to open a branch of Bank of Queensland in Beerwah in 2003, in the community in which they live. Debbie believes one of the real strengths of Bank of Queensland that their clients appreciate is that the staff don’t get moved around, which enables them to develop great relationships with their customers by getting to know them as individuals. “While we are small enough to offer personal service, we are still able to offer a wide range of banking products and services including insurances,” she said. “We provide local friendly service.” “As working women, I believe that while it is critical for us to be good time managers, I think most of us need to remember to have a little time out for ourselves, and of course a sense of humour doesn’t go astray.” “If you haven’t been into our branch and met our team, we are always there with a hello and a smile so come in, we would love to meet you.”

Kylie has been part of the team at the Glasshouse Mountains Sports Club since 2008, and in the past 12 months she has stepped up to take on the role of club manager. The Sportsclub’s Management Committee had seen how driven she was and how passionate she was about the club so they strongly encouraged her to take on the position. While the Sports Club is a not-for-profit community sporting complex, the commercial element of the club must be professionally run to ensure the high quality sporting facilities can be provided and maintained for the local community today and into the future. Before moving into the hospitality industry, Kylie worked as a sales executive for 10 years. So not surprisingly she has a warm and engaging personality and a passion driven for success. Having started as bar staff, leading into functions manager, before taking on the role of club manager Kylie clearly has a strong knowledge of how each of the elements of the business works. She understands what is needed to ensure that the club keeps moving forward to maintain and keep up with the communities sporting and recreational needs.

Re: Simpson Street

Vehicles pulling out from parking spaces have been seen by me to need to cross the centre line to safely clear other parked cars. Road width one gets the feeling when driving down Simpson Street to be in a thin alley, the width of the road is distracting. You need extra care with people appearing at the front or back of their vehicles or doors suddenly opening in front of you with oncoming traffic travelling to close or crossing the centre line due to the road width. Closing of the left hand lane turning into Peachester Road causes a back up of traffic heading north on Simpson Street. Traffic heading south to turn right at Peachester Road has caused risk taking by drivers to clear the lights and intersection. I have seen changes to road ways in a small town and a larger town than Beerwah, in the smaller town half the shopping centre died in relation to the shops, it has been eight years but despite many tries the dead part of the street is still dead. In the larger town, businesses closed who had been in business many decades. The road change was eventually reversed. Shops that had moved did not come back. Even though the road is the centre of town, the area has a second rate feel, people prefer to shop elsewhere. The back streets of Sydney feel more up market than this large town area, and I feel safer in them than the main street of the above larger town. I predict the southern area will wither and die over time (Simpson Street), a very expensive way to close a shopping precinct. Colin Chalker Beerwah Last week coming along Simpson Street, I had to swerve out over the line to miss a lady with a walking stick trying to get out of her car at the doctors surgery (there is no close pedestrian crossing from the car park across the road). Luckily there wasn't any traffic coming. I had only just gotten back over the line and another car opened their door and got out from their car right in front of me. Needless to say we both got an awful shock; and again I was able to miss her due to a lack of traffic through town. Auldi car park has now become a major road through from Turner Street. Not only to avoid the road works, but so they do not have to stop for the lights. And now without an extra lane to turn left at the lights (even though we still have a green arrow), people do not like to wait for the other cars going straight ahead. It is also awful when you get angry actions from the through traffic for taking your trolley back and they do not think you are moving fast enough. Sandy Hanson Beerwah To all the people complaining about the works on Simpson Street and how it is disrupting and a nuisance. Why are you complaining? This is for the benefit of your town! I have first-hand experience of the works and people involved in them, and I would like to say that they have put in the utmost effort to ensure safety and accessibility. Furthermore they have gone above and beyond the call of their jobs on more than one occasion and have always been lovely to deal with. A bit of appreciation wouldn't go astray. M Schultz Beerwah

Glasshouse Country Dog Wash

Great community asset

View stands for the Voice, Interests and Education of Women and it is one of Australia’s leading women’s volunteer organisations and supports the education of disadvantaged children through The Smith Family. The Glasshouse Country View Club has been established for over 10 years and for the past eight years the View Club of Glasshouse Country has met for our monthly luncheons at the Glasshouse Mountains Sports Club. The venue has worked well for our group as the function room is really spacious with room available for a lectern and microphone available for our guest speakers or for entertainment at our special events. The club serves us a delicious and well-priced meal – which the ladies enjoy, it is always nice to eat a meal you haven’t had to prepare yourself. We look forward to continuing this friendship with the club for some years to come and would encourage the rest of the community to take advantage of such a valuable community asset. View members come from all walks of life and meet regularly to provide our members with an outlet to help others, as well as to establish lasting friendships and contribute to the local community. To find out more about View in Glass House Mountains call Margaret, our President on 5435 2172. Jenny Morris, Publicity Officer Glasshouse Country View Club

Just thinking

In the article on February 26 about the Cooker and the Looker, Amanda said "we all get a bit lazy about shopping" as a reason we don't buy local food. I couldn't help thinking there is a ‘one-stop option’ already available here in the form of Sandy Creek Organic Farm. If you want to be lazy, eat local and seasonal, their weekly box of vegetables is an incredibly easy way to do it! Frances Harper Peachester

Not the me, me, me crowd

Since I can remember, for over 80 years it was drought one year, floods the next. It was the country’s fault since it did not affect the city people, bad luck. Now it effects us it's a different matter. The labor party came up with a brilliant scheme – the Snowy Mountain, this was a stroke of genius. Of course we had a good Prime Minister, plus a party that looked after the people, not the me, me, me crowd. They were people with common sense, not around today, it made work, money, jobs, and a national pride in our services. We could do it and show the world, now it’s excuses, we have no money, not that we had much then. They will never come back again those pollies, but they must look at pollies now with disgust who only look after, themselves. How much do dams cost? L Woods Mooloolah

Couldn’t believe it

On my way home from dropping my wife at Caboolture Hospital last week I called into the Beerwah Marketplace to pick up some shopping. I couldn’t believe when I returned to my car, someone had slashed three of my tyres. Thanks to the fellas from Beerwah Discount Tyres who came to my rescue to get me on the road again. I reported the incident to the police who said that it was likely that I was targeted. I would hope if someone has an issue with me that they would raise it with me in person. Name supplied Beerwah

Re: Fact or fiction

I would like to clear up any confusion about the control of Ewen Maddock Dam and other bulk water assets following A. Husband’s letter ‘Ewen Maddock Dam – facts or fiction?’ (GCNews March 5). The management of dams in SEQ is the responsibility of Seqwater, the Queensland Bulk Water Supply Authority, and not Unitywater. Unitywater is responsible for transporting drinking water to customers after it has been collected and treated by Seqwater and also for sewage collection and treatment. We refer all correspondence relating to the management of dams to Seqwater. Judy Bailey, Executive Manager Retail Services Unitywater

Ensuring you are well hydrated is one of the simplest and most beneficial things to do for good health. Every cell in the body requires adequate hydration to survive and function correctly. Dehydration results in loss of elasticity and flexibility, increasing the risk of disease and injury to every part of the body. Circulation is decreased and the transfer of nutrients and waste across cell walls is impeded. There is a greater build up of toxins and the kidneys are unable to filter efficiently. Signs and symptoms of dehydration can include dark urine, skin with excessive lines, thirst, fatigue, dry eyes, joint stiffness and pain, headaches, dizziness, and constipation. Bowen Therapy promotes rehydration of the body by drawing fluid into the fascia (connective

Early Detection is NOT Prevention

Doctor of Chiropractic

Prevention means taking actions to avoid something. Detection means there are signs that it is already present. See the difference? Once something bad (cancer, heart disease, etc) shows up on a test...you already have it. Early detection of a disease is not the same as preventing a disease. We spend all this worry, money, and stress on early detection – so we can then take some sort of action. Doesn't it make more sense to take action before there are signs that you've developed a nasty disease? My mum recently had herself checked out after losing her mother to cancer. Thankfully, all tests came back clear. But I can tell you she is not a healthy woman, and I am always worried about her future health. There is a big difference between being healthy and being ‘not sick’. If you put super healthy on one end of a spectrum, and very sick on the other end – there's a lot of area in between. Unfortunately, like my mum, most people wait until confirmation they are on the sick end before taking action. We should be very grateful for the advances of modern medicine, but if you have your choice, I'm sure most of us would prefer not to need it. While my mum doesn't have cancer or heart disease, her thyroid is playing up and she has had several benign lumps removed from her chest. But, in her words, “thank goodness” it's not bad enough to start eating right and exercising! I hope the point I'm attempting to make is clear. Don't wait until your blood tests or scan detects you have a serious illness, because then you've waited too long. Start preventing chronic disease now with simple lifestyle changes. Eating cleaner, joining your partner or friend for a morning walk, and adopting an attitude of gratitude are great ways to prevent this chronic disease epidemic facing our modern world.

Become eSavvy at Beerwah Technology Expo No matter how you use technology, there is something for everyone to explore at the Beerwah Technology Expo from 9.00am to 2.00pm on Saturday, March 15. Sunshine Coast Council’s Division 1 Councillor Rick Baberowski said the Beerwah Technology Expo provides an opportunity for the community to interact with new and emerging technology. “Exhibitors include Ted’s Cameras, Total Mircosystems, LisaSista Photography, Glasshouse Country Christian College, Beerwah Family History Group - just to name a few. “You will leave feeling eSavvy after learning about social media, cloud storage, green screen technology, benefits of the Community Hub, free eResources including eBooks, eMusic, seeing an amazing 3D printer in action, and so much more.” Glasshouse Country Christian College Educational Technology Support Teacher, Brad Evans said one of the hardest things to do as a school was to connect education with the real world. “Having our Year 9 students involved in days like this allows them to gain perspective on what they are learning while participating in the wider Beerwah community,” he said. “Some of the things the students will be demonstrating include stop motion photography to create an animation on an iPad, green screen technology for media production and news reporting and AppleTV technology which changes the classroom landscape – all these make learning both interesting and fun.” The Beerwah Technology Expo is a proud community initiative of Sunshine Coast Council, Beerwah Grafx Group, Beerwah Friends of the Library and U3A Sunshine Coast. Come along and interact with new and emerging technology and become eSavvy at the Beerwah Technology Expo.

Glenview Road

Council’s $1.1 million upgrade of Glenview Road between Rosemary Avenue and Tolson Road has come a long way in the past month and I’m really pleased with the progress. I stopped by and met with the on-site Traffic Controller who was genuinely impressed with the efficient work of Council’s road crew. An atmosphere of good will has set the scene for the project and locals have been supporting the crew with cold drinks and cake to show their gratitude. Through traffic, local residents and on-ground workers all aspire to see the project completed on time and achieving great results for individual driveways, overall improvements to sight lines and a smoother road surface for travelling on. If the good weather keeps up, completion of the project is expected to be in June.

Roberts Road

Extensive refurbishment is underway along Roberts Road at the car park outside Beerwah State High School. The work aims to separate through traffic along the road from destination traffic entering both the high school and Glasshouse Country Christian College. Car and bus drivers in the area will benefit from the improved management of drop off zones and availability of short term parking.

Skippy Park

Council is about to add the final play element to encourage active play at Skippy Park and thereafter we’ll start work to improve the entry along Old Landsborough Road. The entrance upgrade will start in mid-March and will take approximately five weeks to complete. The work will provide safety improvements for motorists with the inclusion of dedicated left and right turning lanes from Old Landsborough Road into Skippy Park.

Place + Beerwah

It’s exciting to see the Beerwah streetscape take form, particularly the dramatic transformation of the relationship between the pedestrian zone and through traffic along Simpson Street – it’s going to be a great space given over to the streetscape and pedestrian experience. The improvements will support the future of the area as a great community hub for locals and an emerging destination for visitors.

I am pleased to advise council now has a funding agreement in place with Mooloolah Valley Community Association to enable access to Mooloolah Pool and programs for the community.

Harvesting at Rivers Edge

Council recently undertook water plant harvesting works at Rivers Edge’s water body which involved the removal of lilies and floating plants to encourage the growth of underwater plants. These plants provide habitat, food sources for native animals and fish while also assisting managing nutrient loads from streets and stormwater coming into the system. Nutrients can create algal blooms or poor water quality over time. The pond is being used by a range of native birds including purple swamp hens, moorhens, native ducks, coots and water dragons – a lovely place to visit with the family. www.gcnews.com.au

Last week, Ted Prickett from Peachester found this beautiful 2m-plus carpet python resting contentedly in the rafters of the fowl house. Ted said the presence of the snake, which was obviously well fed, may expain the disappearance of two hens recently and a shortage of eggs from time to time. Snake handler, Peter Morningstar, wrestled the python from its perch and has relocated it to a more suitable environment. Pythons and other snakes (many harmless) are a part of our wonderful natural environment, and if left well alone, will happily live side-by-side with us in harmony.

M.R.W.L. Inc Plant of the Month

Callicarpa pedunculata This fast growing 2-3 metre shrub is found in dry rainforests and on the edges of subtropical rainforests from the mid north coast of NSW to north east Qld. In summer, the arching branches are covered in white, pink to pale purple flowers followed by stunning small 3mm diameter dark purple bird attracting fruits formed in dense clusters. This species natural habitat has been dominated by exotic weed, Lantana, which is closely resembles. Velvet Leaf can be grown as a garden specimen; pruning keeps a bushy shape along with regular fertiliser applications; mulching will assist with protection from extreme cold or exposure. The fruit is a food source for the Lewin’s Honeyeater and Silvereye birds, and can be used as a dye for crafts.

Hope

There are three stand out truths in life. Faith, hope and love. I love to talk and speak about hope. It is one of those virtues in life that helps us get through the valleys and up to the peaks on the other side. It enables us to keep on going when everything else is saying quit, it helps us not to give up when everyone around us is saying ‘you’re not going to make it’. Life throws some difficult and tough times at us and that is when we need the power of hope to help us through. Hope is defined as ‘a favourable and confident expectation’. Hope gives us optimism and a positive attitude despite the problems. It says I will keep on dreaming, I will keep on loving, I will keep on working, I will keep on studying, I will keep on waiting, and I will keep on believing for a better tomorrow. The bible says ‘hope does not disappoint’. It uses this phrase in the context of a hope that

comes from God and has the power of heaven behind it. The Psalmist said ‘Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me?’ Hope in God. There is a difference between our own will power, and Godly hope! Hope is a gift of God to us! The prophet Jeremiah declared God’s heart: 'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.’ Jer 29:11 God has a great future for you so look to Him for hope!

Blood, Sweat & Cheers Your guide to sport in Glasshouse Country

Contributed Sharon Bochow

Nineteen members of the Glasshouse Hinterland Fishing Club fished the weekend of February 15 and 16 with some good catches Winners: Whiting - Max Schmock (397mm) Bream - Danny Kowald (278mm) Flathead - Sam Fulton (718mm). Children’s section – Sophie Johnston (Bream and Whiting) The fishing club fishes Bribie passage between the Bribie Island bridge and the Caloundra Bar. The club encourages responsible fishing and skills through competition. The year has just started, so it not too late to get involved with this family group of amateur fishermen, women and children. Cost for the year is $65.00 for adults and $53.00 for children which includes membership to the QAFAC and nomination to the club events held throughout the year. Monthly membership draws, monthly prizes and yearly presentations are held. The next competition is March 22 and 23. If you would like to join the club drop in and see the friendly staff at Club Glass House, 10 Coonowrin Road, Glass House Mountains and they will be able to answer your questions and give you a nomination form. Sam Fulton with his winning flathead

Under 8’s and Under 10’s commence training this Thursday at 4.30pm at the Tunnel Ridge Road facility in Landsborough. The first carnival is only a couple of weeks away. Many of the kids have already been down having a kick while the Under 12’s and Under 16’s have been training and are eager to get started! We are very excited about the opportunity to enter a girls Under 15’s team for the first time this year, the turnout at the ‘come and try’ days has been wonderful and the girls skills are coming along in leaps and bounds! The club would like to welcome any boys and girls aged from six to 15 to come down and have a go at AFL on Thursday evenings. If you would like further information please contact Craig Bales at 0414 225 329.

Sara sure can throw

Glasshouse Country local Sara Wessling competed at the Queensland paraathletics championships in Brisbane last weekend. The University of the Sunshine Coast Athletics Club representative won one silver and two bronze medals at the event. Sara competed as a thrower in all four throws events, in javelin she won silver and she broke her own state record twice and equalled it a third time with a throw of 13.24m. In discus she won a bronze medal with a throw of 19.46m, a national qualifier. In shot she won a bronze with a throw of 5.14m. In hammer Sara competed as an able-bodied athlete as para hammer is not contested in Australia and she threw 16.48 m which is a ‘personal best’ for her. This is the fifth year in a row Sara has qualified for nationals, to date she has self funded her dreams to compete at that level by working. However this year she has been unable to find work. She would be very grateful if there is someone out there that would be willing to fund her to chase her dream. Nationals are held in Melbourne April 4 to 6 at the Lakeside Stadium, nominations close on March 17, Sara can be contacted on 0401 393 274.

Nothing to crow about Researchers for the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority found over 200 dead crows near greater Boston recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A Bird Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu. The cause of death appeared to be vehicular impacts. However, during the detailed analysis it was noted that varying colors of paints appeared on the bird's beaks and claws. By analyzing these paint residues it was determined that 98%

Your Stars

of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks, while only 2% were killed by an impact with a car. MTA then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of truck kills versus car kills. The Ornithological Behaviorist very quickly concluded the cause: when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger. They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout ‘Cah’, not a single one could shout ‘Truck.’ Submitted by Hugh Jones, Beerwah Week beginning 12/03/14

PISCES February 20 – March 20 This weekend will see the build up to the full Moon in Virgo, which has a lot going for collaborations of all types. You give a mature perspective on alliances and one party could head towards a commitment. Mercury in Venus draws you into a reclusive solitude, looking for answers that come from dream work therapy. ARIES March 21 – April 20 When Mercury bumps into Uranus and Mars this week you will move fast with news of change bringing in new decisions. You even have a smart idea that can turn any disruption into a fast cooperative change. This weekend the full Moon in Virgo may bring an urgent health matter that needs immediate attention. TAURUS April 21 – May 21 Will an important relationship survive? Since Saturn’s retrograde, a reassessment is taking place with your business and personal relationships. Mercury and Mars come to your rescue, after the full Virgo Moon, with Mercury in Aquarius shifting your attention to friendly like-minded groups. Family love becomes apparent. GEMINI May 22 – June 21 The Full Moon stresses this weekend, bringing in chaotic emotional energies, however you prefer just cool reason and logical attention for decisions about home or work. Are there any blocks to your good health and work efficiency? If every day is feeling like a drag, or that your job is in a rut, make logical changes.

CANCER June 22 – July 22 There is a possibility of a big slow down coming from Saturn’s retrograde in Scorpio. This may see you with a review of your romantic affairs. Mercury and Saturn do not align well this week so there may be negativity with credit, a loan, or mortgage. With Venus entering Aquarius, this brings new fiscal partnerships. LEO July 23 – August 22 With the Full Moon coming up next weekend, this falls across your financial axis, which is a trigger for money matters. Trying to act together with your partner, falls into an awkward hesitancy. You will need to balance your accounts and debt from an intuitive perspective, so don’t just give away your power. VIRGO August 23 – September 22 With Mercury joining up with Aquarius with Venus this helps your conscious attention to your daily routine and adds beneficial social networking. You will be innovative and insightful on work or health matters. There is even an experiment with an alternative diet or therapy. The full Moon gives confidence now. LIBRA September 23 – October 22 With Saturn retrograding now in Scorpio, there is a bite into your financial affairs. You will probably have to rethink your financial strategies. You may find yourself making a list for reorganisation, especially with your partner. The full Moon brings immediate attention to health or work balance with your soul-body.

SCORPIO October 23 – November 22 There is a full Moon coming up after this weekend in Virgo. As it goes well with a steady retrograde in Saturn your wishes for the future may see some stability still likely in travel or publishing. Mercury and Venus in Aquarius spruce up your home in new colours and starts a friendship circle for you now. SAGITTARIUS November 23 – December 22 With Mercury and Venus in the unusual sign of Aquarius it makes you a local ambassador, whether on your bush walking, or running through the local parklands. An unexpected pleasure comes from a suddenly delightful liaison with someone joining your physical exercise program. Jupiter opens opportunities. CAPRICORN December 23 – January 19 You may join forces with others to make money and receive good advice. An exciting aspect between Venus and Uranus stir up a sudden windfall. Time for unconventional home pleasures with a new tech-gadget, or a surprise funding for a new domestic home project. Intellectual horizons deepen for you. AQUARIUS January 20 – February 19 This week you will awaken with faith and forgiveness in your heart. Play your cards right and each evening can bring you extreme pleasures. A restless impatience pushes an unstable opinion, but luckily you will have a great idea coming from a partner that positively activates your future beliefs. Don’t eat excessively.
