Hi Everyone You might notice that at the bottom of this page we have a new distribution figure with a note saying that it’s from the Circulations Audit Bureau (or CAB for short). This is a whole new world for us, where we are now independently and meticulously audited twice a year by the CAB. CAB is the leading print publishing auditing body. Their job is to verify what we say we are doing so that our advertisers and readers can be absolutely confident that our readership claims are what we say they are. Our CAB circulation figures are 10,175. We print 10,300 newspapers – so 10,175 of these are circulated in the Glasshouse Country region, with 125 kept at the office for people to pick up here and for us to use for cutting up, sending to family of people in the paper or for other records.

When I first took over the paper in 2004 the distribution was 6,300. It’s incredible when you think that the region has grown so much over the past eight years. We’re proud to be the only newspaper delivered to residents in the whole of the Glasshouse Country region – that’s Mooloolah, Glenview, Palmview, Landsborough, Mt Mellum, Peachester, Beerwah, Glass House Mountains and Beerburrum. We’re the truly local newspaper, being locally owned and operated, employing local people, trading with local businesses, supporting local groups and being the voice of local communities. And we can proudly say we reach 10,175 properties and places each and every week. Regards,

Story of Landsborough retold with new exhibition

Call Leisa or Michelle

If you aren’t familiar with the rich origins of Landsborough, it might be time you visited the Landsborough Museum, where a new exhibition has just been launched to celebrate the former shire’s 100th anniversary.

Last month, around 60 people gathered at Landsborough Museum to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Landsborough Shire, where the new exhibition, a storyboard featuring the late William Landsborough, was also unveiled, along with the launch of a booklet detailing the shire’s history. William Landsborough’s fame lay in becoming the first explorer to successfully traverse the Australian continent, after being sent out to find the missing explorers, Burke and Wills. It was some time later that the Landsborough Township, originally named Mellum Creek, was renamed in his honour. Today, the rich and vibrant history of the area, including the Landsborough Shire, has been well documented and preserved, and is recounted through collections and permanent exhibitions at the Landsborough Museum, the original home of the Landsborough Shire office, opened in 1924. Present at the recent celebrations to mark the anniversary were special guests from one of William Landsborough’s granddaughters, Judy Valentine, to a number of former councillors, including Selwyn Carbery, who served as a councillor on Landsborough Shire Council from 1967 until 1991, by which time it had been renamed Caloundra City Council.

Selwyn, who is now in his 90’s, recalls his time serving on council as a period of rapid growth for the region, including the development of the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, a new suburb called Kawana being established, and the opening of the Caloundra Visitor Information Centre. It was also during his years of service that many of the local roads were sealed. The William Landsborough storyboard, which is now on permanent display in the Museum’s foyer, was sponsored by another of one of his granddaughters, Jennifer Stephenson, and her daughter Sara Ducher, along with Rick Baberowski and his partner Karen Tyler, who provided part of the funding for the project prior to his election to Division 1 in the current council. The Landsborough Museum, located at 4 Maleny Street, Landsborough is open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, 9.00am 3.00pm. Volunteers are always needed, for more information contact the Museum on 5494 1755 or drop in during opening hours.

Bridge named after Elizabeth Grigor The bridge over the Stanley River has been renamed to honour the legacy of Peachester identity, Elizabeth Grigor. Member for Glass House Andrew Powell said the bridge was a fitting tribute and lasting public memorial to an important part of the community’s history. “I took up the cause to name the bridge in honour of Elizabeth after her granddaughter came to me with the idea,” Mr Powell said. “It is easy to forget our history and naming the bridge after Elizabeth reminds us of the important role these pioneering families played in developing our community. “Her husband, William Grigor, was an early settler in Peachester and ran a sawmill where the bridge is now located which quickly became a focal point for the budding Peachester township.

“He was also one of the first elected councillors for the Landsborough Shire in 1912. “Together the Grigors played a vital role in establishing Peachester, building the Crohamhurst State School and many houses in the neighbourhood.” Regional Director Dennis Tennant said Mrs Grigor would never be forgotten thanks to the community-driven initiative to honour her contribution to the region. “Elizabeth officially opened the Stanley River Bridge in 1923 and this naming honours her place as a respected member of the community,” Mr Tennant said. The bridge which crosses Stanley River on Kilcoy-Beerwah Road was renamed in late March.

After nearly 18 months of disruption, the Peachester Range Road has now reopened to two lanes of traffic. Transport and Main Roads Regional Director Dennis Tennant said he was sure motorists would be very pleased to see the road reopened after almost 18 months of it operating as a single lane under temporary traffic signals. Kilcoy-Beerwah Road at Peachester Range was damaged during the flooding events of January 2011 by a significant landslip on the downhill side of the road. Mr Tennant said the landslip took part of the outside laneway with it, and following emergency repairs, the road was opened as a single lane operating under traffic signals. He said the terrain and the topography of the area added to the complexity of designing a long-term solution to the damage. “We have now excavated the uphill side and have moved the road an additional three metres away

from the downhill slope to improve both safety and drainage at this location," he said. Member for Glass House Andrew Powell said the re-opening of Peachester Range Road is music to the ears of the local community. "I again thank the residents of Peachester for their patience and understanding over ongoing delays. This road certainly wasn't without its challenges and I'm just pleased to see we got there in the end." The works were part of Operation Queenslander and funded under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA). Under these arrangements, the Australian Government provides 75 per cent of the funding, with 25 per cent from the Queensland Government.

Councillor reflects on first 30 days as part of new team It may have only been a month since Jenny McKay was returned to office as the elected representative for Division 5, but it’s been long enough for her to note a renewed sense of community and team spirit amongst her fellow councillors.

Cr McKay said she was very impressed by the new team at the helm of Sunshine Coast Council, which represents a diverse mix of individuals, all with a very strong business focus, but balanced by a sense of community. “Because at the end of the day, we’re in the business of people, and it’s great to have a mayor with such a strong business background and team spirit. “It is in the best interest of the ratepayers to have a team that can effectively debate topics, come to an agreement and move forward, and that is exactly what I have seen in this first month. “It’s exciting to be part of a team that realises that although we have very much a local focus, we need to also consider the big picture, and what is happening globally. “The decisions we make can’t just be made for today, but for our future, and we also have a responsibility to present the facts without being alarmist,” she said.

Cr McKay said the first big task ahead of Council was to deliver the budget before the end of the month. “This budget will be very much focussed on the tough times.” “While we’ll be aiming for a minimal rate rise, as one of the coast’s biggest employers, we need to continue to deliver infrastructure projects that provide employment opportunities. Cr Mckay said it was too early to attempt to guess what services might be trimmed back in the budget, but there will have to be some cost cutting measures. “The big four projects that we need to deliver for the Sunshine Coast are the Sunshine Coast airport expansion, the Kawana hospital, the Maroochydore CBD, and Caloundra South.” “The challenge before us is to find the funding to progress these projects to ensure the viability of the future of the coast and its economy.” She said one of her priorities, however, was to ensure that the hinterland was recognised for the value of the drive-by tourism market. “We’re the custodians of a very valuable eco-tourism asset here in the hinterland, and we need to preserve and enhance it, and ensure we get the balance right.”

Have your say on airport expansion project A comprehensive stakeholder and community engagement program around the Sunshine Coast Airport expansion project, including a new runway, has started. Sunshine Coast Mayor, Mark Jamieson, said getting the community involved was another important step for the airport expansion, which would create thousands of jobs and strengthen

the economy for decades to come. To have your say, there is a freecall number, 1800 210 755, or email info@SCAexpansion., visit the website at www. or by post to the Sunshine Coast Airport Expansion Project, Reply Paid, Locked Bag 72, Sunshine Coast Mail Centre, Qld, 4560.

On Wednesday, May 23, Embracia held a morning tea with its residents, and during the morning they passed the hat around for donations and ran a hundred club draw to raise money, as well as selling cakes, biscuits and slices in the weeks leading up to the morning tea. They managed to raise a grand total of $607.00. A big thank you to their generous residents and wonderful volunteers and staff for all their support. A great job all round, with a fantastic result for the Cancer Council. At a ladies morning tea at Glenview Gardens Country Resort, around 30 guests were treated to some lovely tasty treats and fluffy cappuccinos, and raised $250.00. Thanks to the following businesses who donated raffle prizes for the day, including Bombay Bliss, Beerwah Woolworths, Beerwah IGA, Loot Caloundra, Aussie World, Beerwah Chemist, Red Threads, Aussie World Flowers and Angus Robertson Bookshop.

Help build a shed for Max’s horses Following last month’s story of Glass House local Max Chapman and his passion for horses, a call is being put out to anyone interested in contributing to his cause. Local resident Jaylene Musgrave, who was touched by Max’s story, is coordinating a working bee to help construct a shed on the property on Coonorwrin Road where Max keeps his horses. Jaylene said she is looking for donations of materials, and tradespeople who might be able to spare some time to help out with the project. “So many people in the community have come up to Max since the story was published in GCNews and showed interest in helping him help his gorgeous horses,” Jaylene said. Max is well known to many locals, often seen riding the horses around Glass House, and came under the spotlight after Max was awarded the inaugural ‘Peace Out’ award by Jaylene on behalf of Vegan Warriors. If you can donate materials, manpower or money, email Jaylene at

From the Schools

An astronomical event!

Last Wednesday, June 6, approximately 900 students from Beerwah State High School witnessed the rarest of predictable astronomical events, the transit of Venus. Predicted by Johannes Kepler in 1631, only six of these events have been witnessed. The importance of these events was realised by Edmond Halley, of Halley’s Comet fame, who presented in 1716 a mathematical way to determine the distance from the Earth to the Sun. This distance had eluded astronomers. In order to gather the data required for this calculation, numerous expeditions were planned for the 1761 and 1769 transits of Venus. One of these was the journey James Cook took to Tahiti to record this data after which proceeded to the Southern oceans, where the rest is history. With the historical importance of the event under their belts, the entire school population enjoyed viewing the Sun through specifically designed solar glasses as well as three telescopes fitted with filters that offered magnified views of the planet passing the Sun.

Students Lauren Blake and Travis Bosch marvel at the rare astronomical event which the school captured on photo As well as visually looking at the sun, photos were taken every 30 minutes to track the path of the planet at the exact same time as a school in Hong Kong were taking photos. These photos will be swapped over the internet and students at both schools will use the data to determine the distance from the Earth to the Sun. Physics teachers Mr Budd and Mr Bateman said it was a fantastic day weatherwise but also listening to the positive comments from the students. If you missed this one, start planning for the next one which will occur in 2117.

Kindy children say thanks!

A word from the


with Tara from Total Microsystems

Virus Warning: Australia Post and courier company package delivery failure emails We seem to be having quite a few customers get sucked into this email scam lately. They begin with an email that has a subject line similar to the following: • Package Delivery Status Failure • Australia Post Delivery Information The body of the email goes on to say something along the lines of

Your package has been returned to the Australia Post office. Reason: Error in delivery address. Information about your package is attached to the letter. Or alternatively:

A courier did not deliver the package to your address. Reason: The delivery address is wrong. Please find the attached document containing detailed information about delivery failure. Read all information carefully and come to the Australia Post office to receive your package. Whatever you do - DO NOT open the attachment! If you have a good quality virus scanner on your machine, it should a) mark the email as junk and b) possibly notify you that the attachment has a virus which it will automatically destroy. If you have opened the attachment, the chances of you having a virus are very high if you don’t already have a good internet security program installed. Best to get one ASAP! If you want a free program - try AVG Free. Our recommended option for a paid program is Kaspersky Internet Security. They currently have a deal on (limited time only) where you get two years cover for just $59.00 for one PC! We think that’s a bargain!

SSD – Solid State Hard Drives… What’s All The Fuss About? An SSD or Solid State Hard Drive is different from a normal HDD (Hard Disk Drive) because it has no moving parts. Instead, it uses microchips to store data – much the same as a USB flash drive. There are three distinct advantages of an SSD over a standard HDD: They are much faster Your computer will not only boot up faster (most within 30 seconds), but everything else you do will be faster! Transferring or copying files / Firing up applications like Microsoft Office or Photoshop / Even your antivirus software can scan files faster. So if you are impatient with your computer (like me) then an SSD is the best option for you. They are far more reliable With no moving parts to break, you are less likely to encounter a dead hard drive. This is especially important in notebook computers that you generally move around a lot. The knocks and bumps a notebook computer encounters can cause damage. They use much less power Because SSD’s do not have a motor inside them, they generate less heat and consume less power. In a notebook this helps extend the battery life. So if you want to be green – upgrade to an SSD! Downsides? Price! SSD’s used to be horrendously expensive – higher price with a much smaller data storage capacity. However they have recently dropped considerably in price, so they are becoming a very practical option. Can you upgrade to an SSD? Yes! You can upgrade whether you have a notebook OR a desktop PC or Mac. We have a great range in stock now so drop in and talk to us about a new SSD for your computer.

May was a busy month for the Chamber with the Signage Taskforce meeting with Mark McArdle to discuss the challenges faced by business owners and residents in Beerwah since the completion of the overpass. Mark has now organised with us to meet with Main Road representatives to put forward our signage concerns. We also recently participated in the Glasshouse Country Gardening and Sustainability Expo at Beerwah. The event was very professionally co-ordinated by our webmaster Ben Foster from Static Wave. He was ably assisted by Bob McLean and the Rotary Club of the Glasshouse Mountains. The event went very smoothly and the response from those involved was very positive. Thanks Ben and Bob for your great work and thanks also to the Chamber members who assisted in staffing our Chamber stand on the day. I hope you have all marked the Chamber’s next networking night in your diaries. As this financial year draws to a close, I am sure that many local businesses will be happy to ‘Kiss the financial year good-bye’ and toast the new financial year ahead. The new owners of LattE Da at Landsborough (the Old Mad Hatters, on Caloundra Road) James and Sandra, have very kindly agreed to host the event on Wednesday, June 16 from 5.30pm. And thanks to our sponsors on the night – GM Services and WD Hall Accounting who will be covering the cost of our nibbles. There will be no charge for attending, but you will need to purchase your own drinks. If you would like to attend please RSVP to Sarah at Glasshouse Country News on 5438 7445 or email I look forward to seeing you all at the networking night.

10th Birthday Celebrations Party Night 21 June 6pm

Even though every day seems like a celebration of life when you enter the Eclectic Dreams store in Landsborough, on June 21, Heidi and her team of gorgeous goddesses will be pulling out all stops to celebrate their 10th birthday. And you’re invited to the party. From 6.00pm there will be live music, nibbles, wine and as you would expect, a tasty birthday cake. Also on the night there will be readings, energy treatments, specials and prizes and the girls from 3 Diva’s will be serving a great curry menu. Eclectic Dreams is located at 3-5/1 Maleny Street, Landsborough opposite the Museum. These days with many of us becoming addicted to viewing Masterchef and My Kitchen Rules, it has certainly expanded our horizons for the type of ingredients we like to source for our cooking. Well good news! Jenny the new deli manager from Mooloolah IGA has convinced management that they should expand the range of gourmet goodies they offer their customers. The range includes plenty of brands you will have heard of including Maggie Beer, Nandos and Maleny Cuisines, and includes delicious sauces, seasonings, marinades, and lovely items that are great for antipasto platters. Check out the display at Mooloolah IGA – 4 Jones Street, Mooloolah.

Let’s share the roads

As one of a growing number of cycling enthusiasts who love to ride the Hinterland roads, we occasionally encounter motorists who honk their horns and shout at us. They seem to think that cyclists do not have the same rights and responsibilities as other road users. But under Queensland Road Rules bicycles are considered vehicles. Motorists can make it easier and safer for cyclists if they follow some of these rules: 1. Make room. Allow at least one metre clearance to cyclists. When overtaking, give cyclists lots of room in case they need to swerve to avoid other hazards. Just as you would not pass a slow truck uphill where there are double lines, why try to pass a cyclist when it is unsafe? 2. Watch for cyclists at intersections and roundabouts; give way to cyclists when turning left and exiting or entering properties. 3. Check behind you for cyclists before opening your car door, turning or reversing. 4. Be patient. Wait until it is safe before overtaking a cyclist. Look left, look right, look for a bike! Mary Garden (Lycra Lizards group)

Another fundraising success

A big thank you to all who supported the Cuppa for Cancer Appeal hosted by the Beerwah Catholic Ladies Auxilliary on June 5. As a result the Auxilliary will send $500.00 to the Cancer Fund plus the cheque for $500.00 passed on by Bob MacLean on behalf of Rotary. Bob's talk on the formation and goals of the Prostate Cancer

From Andrew Powell

Support Group was appreciated, with important information shared. Members of the Singing Belles entertained with a bracket of traditional and popular songs to complete an enjoyable gettogether in a cause that touches so many of us at one time or another. The next fund raiser hosted by the Beerwah Catholic Ladies Auxilliary will be the annual Soup Luncheon on July 3 in aid of the St Vincent de Paul Winter Appeal. Pam Lever Beerwah

Beerwah NHWQ June Good Neighbour Award At the meeting of Beerwah NHWQ held on June 4, the ‘Good Neighbour Award’ was presented to Glenda McSwain, who had been nominated by Pam and John Innes. Their citation read: ‘Glenda is very involved with HAAC Coochin Hills Centre; has recently been elected as Chairperson of the Beerwah High School Chaplaincy Council; is a member of The Singing Belles choir and involves them in concerts that she organises for Embracia and Coochin Hills. Glenda co-organises the Annual Beerwah High School Chaplaincy Golf Tournament with Warwick Moody.

Out and About

Hardwood Road / Railway Street intersection, Landsborough

There have been a lot of community based events on in the Glass House electorate lately which has certainly kept me busy! It is show season and the Glass House electorate overlaps with four different shows across the region including Maleny, Caboolture, Nambour and Woodford. I have had information stalls set up at each show so far and must say how great it has been to catch up with locals. The show tradition is certainly alive and well in Glass House with record numbers attending the Show Balls and the shows themselves. Glasshouse Mountains even had its own show, the Glasshouse Sustainability Expo in amongst the mix and was also a great hit with those who attended. Bankfoot House recently held its 2012 Open Day with a massive 900 people joining in the celebrations. Along with Governor Penelope Wensley and other lifelong community members I joined in celebrating this great day and even got to watch the Governor ride in a 109-year-old horseless carriage! The celebrations continued last weekend with the official naming of Elizabeth Grigor Bridge in Peachester. These locals are so very proud of their heritage and it was a touching experience to see the joy on their faces as we unveiled the new bridge name.

Buy Smart Competition 2012

The Buy Smart 2012 competition has now opened and is designed to help young people develop their consumer awareness skills and become wiser with their money. With young people becoming more active in the marketplace and exposed to consumer issues, it is more important than ever for them to develop smart financial and consumer habits. There are three categories for Years 4 - 6, Years 7 - 9 and Years 10 - 12 and cash prizes are awarded to the student and the school. The Office of Fair Trading will arrange a visit to your local school to explain how the program works and kick start everything - contact my office on 5435 2013 or email buysmart@ for more information.

JUNE 13 2012

I’ve had a lot of feedback from residents about concerns at this intersection, since sharing with Glasshouse Country News readers that I have written to Transport Minister Scott Emerson about this intersection following a fatality last month. I welcome all feedback and will ensure Minister Emerson receives a copy of this.

CBD signage

I recently met with the Glass House Chamber of Commerce to discuss a range of issues, including a lack of signage in the Beerwah Town Centre. I’m happy to report I’ve arranged for a representative from the Department of Transport and Main Roads to meet with us this month Ursula Starkovsky, Kel McNamara, Mark McArdle and to discuss this issue and Patty Shaw meeting to discuss signage concerns possible solutions.

Strengthening local groups

I’m pleased to see the State Government has recently approved funding for a number of community group projects. The Suncoast Hinterland BMX Club received significant funding to repair a damaged track and support BMX at Mooloolah. St Vincent de Paul at Landsborough will receive funding to purchase a solar system, Twinnies Pelican and Seabird Rescue at Landsborough will be able to purchase a rescue vessel and Beerwah Golf Club has also received funding. Well done everyone.


Are you celebrating a 100th birthday or significant wedding anniversary soon? I am more than happy to provide a congratulations certificate and depending on the event, the Premier can as well. If you have an upcoming event, please contact my office in advance and we can forward you the relevant forms to fill out. You also have to provide a copy of the birth certificate, marriage certificate or statutory declaration. Happy celebrating.

Bowen Therapy and Remedial Massage Therapist, Diane Rantall of Nicolle Court, Mooloolah Valley says that sometimes it is difficult for clients to choose which therapy may best be suited to them. Bowen Therapy is a soft tissue, holistic, non invasive therapy that can be used on people of all ages, including babies. In the natural therapy spectrum it is a relative new therapy, however it often has profound results. Bowen Therapy helps to reduce pain and increase mobility levels. Diane has been employed at a respite centre for the last four and a half years and during this time has seen some remarkable improvements in client’s health. Bowen Therapy helps with both new and old long-standing injuries. It is also good for people who may not like massage, as it doesn’t need strong pressure on the muscles, to help them release tightness, improve mobility and decrease pain levels.

Different techniques and pressure on the muscles are used during a remedial massage. It may be deep, strong or gentle, depending on the client’s condition.

Living Well The Happy Mum With Jackie Hall Author of The Happy Mum Handbook and Creator of Self Help for Mums

Sometimes we get down on ourselves because we believe we should be parenting better than we are, but the reality is that we are only ever doing the best we can with the knowledge we have. So if something's not working for you, or you have a repetitive behaviour in yourself that you don't like, that doesn't mean you're a bad mum, it just means that you need new information on how to think or behave differently. The important part is that you seek out the information you need in order to change and grow from your unwanted experiences then remain solution focused about what you want and how to get it. Would you ever walk into a courtroom and start playing the role of a lawyer without any prior

Colouring for hospital appeal training? Well this is essentially what you are doing in the role of being a mother. You are learning on the job and that’s going to mean that you will make mistakes, you will sometimes get things right and sometimes you will have no idea what you are doing. This is the reality of being a mum. You are always doing the best you can with the information you currently have. Rather than belittle yourself, if you notice yourself behaving in a way you don’t like, why don’t you instead seek out resources that will teach you how to handle yourself or the situation differently? Instead of judging yourself as a failure, see yourself as someone who just has something to learn and as an opportunity for personal growth. The bottom line is, please give yourself a break! There is no Right way to be a parent. The only Way to parent is to be a mother doing the best you can with what you know – and that is you already.

Free 28-day challenge to help mums lower stress with Landsborough Self Help for Mums guru Essential Kids, Australia’s most informative site for parents with children, and the Self Help for Mums organisation have joined forces to launch a free 28-day challenge to inspire Australian mums to stop yelling at their children. Landsborough’s Jackie Hall, author of ‘The Happy Mum Handbook’, founder of Self Help for Mums and GCNews columnist, created the idea from her own desire to learn a new habit of not yelling at her children. The challenge is based on the idea that it takes 21 days to break an old habit and an extra seven days to reinforce the new one – that is, being a calmer parent. Participants sign up for the challenge and receive 28 daily emails from Self Help for Mums, an organisation that specialises in teaching mums how to parent stress-free. Each email progressively teaches parents how to understand the thinking behind their anger and frustrations, and learn how to adopt a different mindset when approaching the challenges of raising children. Mums participating in the challenge can use a dedicated section on the Essential Kids forum to discuss their progress, recognise their wins, admit when they’ve dropped the ball, share their learning and generally get support from a community of women all working towards the same goal – to be scream-free.

Jackie said loads of information can be found on how to raise kids and manage behaviour, but very little information is available on how mums can manage their own mental and emotional states. “This challenge is about teaching mums how to adopt a different mindset when dealing with the ups and downs of being a parent, whilst getting non-judgemental support from other mums who are also trying to change,” Jackie said. Sharing the challenge with her Facebook fans initially, Jackie found that many mums reported to notice a remarkable difference in how they felt, their child’s behaviour and, in many cases, their partner’s behaviour. Essential Kids editor Amber Robinson said: “as a mum, I know that kids can sometimes be a handful and resorting to screaming can be easy, which is why Essential Kids is so excited about launching this challenge with Self Help for Mums. It’s a unique program with many benefits for mums who want a different yet tried and tested approach to parenting.” The 28-day scream-free challenge begins on Monday, June 18 and participants can join now. For more information or to sign-up, visit the www. and www.selfhelpformums. com/28_day_scream_free_challenge websites.

We know the figure above represents the average distribution of this publication. No more, no less. It’s the absolute truth. How do we know? Well, we have our publication audited by the CAB. Why? Because we are committed to protecting our advertisers. The CAB audits our newspapers, magazines, websites and exhibitions to make sure advertisers are getting all of what they are paying so much for. There is a lot of money at stake, but a surprisingly large number of advertisers blindly trust the numbers they are given by unaudited media. We just don’t understand why. Why would an advertiser risk paying too much for too little? Ask yourself this, what kind of media outlet wouldn’t want to be audited? As an advertiser, put your mind at rest, insist that you only use media that’s been CAB audited. Like this one.

The Hall is used throughout the week by various groups - yoga, creative dance, craft group, slimmers, martial arts, churches and tia chi commencing soon. Contacts for these groups are available on the information boards at the hall. With so few members, fundraising is difficult but we have succeeded to some degree with help from the local craft group and our input at the monthly markets. Whether the markets will continue is uncertain, as it is a lot of work for so few members. The winner of the beautiful handmade quilt (donated by the local craft group) was C. Ryan of Mooloolah. Well done and thanks to all who helped our fundraising by buying tickets. Come along to a meeting and become involved in Your Own Public Hall.

Call me old-fashioned, but I love our beautiful Queen Elizabeth. I have enjoyed seeing the wonderful images of the celebrations marking her Diamond Jubilee. In what must feel like a lifetime ago for her, through the brilliant experience of technology, we have been able to watch and hear her as a 21-year-old young woman, making her speech to the people of the Commonwealth from Cape Town. She famously said “I declare before you that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be dedicated to your service….God help me to make good my vow, and God bless all of you who are willing to share in it.” Who can doubt that, with God’s help, she has made good her vow! Her Majesty has lived 60 years of her life (and counting!) devoted to the service of others. What an extraordinary achievement! Serving others is one of the most beautiful expressions of love that I can think of. In the book of Luke, Jesus says a true leader is one who humbly serves. The Bible tells us that Jesus came to serve Because of His greatness, not in spite of it (John 13:15) and He was the perfect example of a servant when He lived on the earth. The 'volunteer spirit' or as the Bible calls it a ‘servant’s heart’, is about doing whatever you need to do to help

someone else without any strings attached. It’s about touching the lives of those around you with such kindness that your act will be remembered for years to come. We may not have the incredible influence on the world stage like the Queen has, but it doesn’t matter what we own, how much money we have in the bank, how talented or educated we are, or how many people we know – we can influence the world around us by doing small acts of kindness for our neighbours, friends, family and our community. When we meet the needs of other people and put someone else’s needs before our own; we share the real presence of Jesus – and by doing this we give ourselves an incredible opportunity to make a difference in someone else’s world! This is the amazing power of service! So on Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee, I want to take this time to thank God for our Queen Elizabeth; whose longevity and dedication of service to her people all around the world will be remembered for many years to come. God bless her for she has truly blessed us and served us well and may she reign for many years to come!

Real Estate & Financial Guide Borrowers get back to basics in May Variable interest rate home loans were the product of choice for almost four of every five new borrowers in May, a month when the Reserve Bank sweetened the appeal with a 50 basis point cash rate cut. Borrowers’ preference for variable rate loans rose marginally, by one percentage point to 79 per cent of all new home loans last month, according to national loan approval data from Australia’s largest independently-operated mortgage broker, Mortgage Choice. The biggest increase in variable rate loan demand

was recorded in SA (up 12 per cent, to 85 per cent), followed by NSW (up four per cent, to 77 per cent), WA (up one per cent, to 79 per cent) and QLD (up one per cent, to 74 per cent). Local Mortgage Choice franchise owner, Robert Harney said The Reserve Bank’s decision last month to cut the cash rate by 50 basis points, combined with speculation around further rate cuts, is likely to have fuelled borrowers’ appetites for variable rate home loans. “Price-sensitive borrowers more than likely found comfort in lenders’ decision to pass on majority of

the rate cut savings to variable rate borrowers.” “Out of all the variable rate home loan types, basic variable rates, which tend to be more affordable but less flexible with fewer features, were the only loan product to gain in popularity, with demand rising to 17 per cent in May from 14 per cent in April.” He said the increased interest in basic variable rate loans, now at a nine-month high, could signal a return to the market by first homebuyers, as these loans tend to be more popular with lower income and less experienced borrowers.

Do you provide your employees with Fringe Benefits? What is a fringe benefit? A fringe benefit is a 'payment' to an employee, but in a different form to salary or wages. According to the fringe benefits tax (FBT) legislation, a fringe benefit is a benefit provided in respect of employment. This effectively means a benefit is provided to somebody because they are an employee. The terms benefit and fringe benefit

have broad meanings for FBT purposes. Benefits include rights, privileges or services. For example, a fringe benefit may be provided when an employer: • allows an employee to use a work car for private purposes • gives an employee a cheap loan • pays an employee's gym membership • provides entertainment by the way of free tickets to concerts

• reimburses an expense incurred by an employee, such as school fees • gives benefits under a salary sacrifice arrangement with an employee. As a guide to whether a benefit is provided in respect of employment, ask yourself whether you would have provided the benefit if the person had not been an employee. If you have provided any of your employees with a

fringe benefit you need to do a fringe benefit return. The period this return covers is April 1 to March 31. This return needs to be lodged by May 21 each year. Certain fringe benefits must also be reported on the employees payment summary. We can help you with any other information you need regarding Fringe Benefits.

Contributed by Ken Fullerton Jnr The Chris Carter Memorial game between BG’s and NYU will be played at Yandina on June 23, second division 5.00pm, followed by first division at 7.00pm. Chris Kocho ‘Choc’ Carter was born September 12, 1970. He grew up in Yandina and attended school there. Chris loved his sport and started playing soccer with NYU when he was eight. He worked his way up through the years to become a 1st Div player as well as a Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay representative. Chris came to play for BG’s in his early 20’s and was a great asset to the club. We enjoyed playing many games together and had a few fantastic end of season trips to Double Island Point. Chris was tragically killed in an accident on June 14, 1997. He was a great player and a good mate to everyone at BG’s. RIP our mate Choc. We will never forget you.

Beerwah Ladies Golf Contributed by Jenny Kelly We had great day weather wise on Thursday for the opening round of the Women's Championships. This event will be played as a Stroke competition over four days. We hold individual competitions on a daily basis in conjunction with the Championships and Thursday's was sponsored by Cath Cherry and Oriel Lyon. The winner of Division 1 was Hollie Sinclair with a 73 Nett, closely followed by Noelene Annakin with 74 Nett. Jan Corfield took out Division 2 with 74 Nett, with Barb McIntosh runner up on 75 Nett. Number 2 proved a bit tricky in the wind so no one got the NTP on that hole. Sue Williamson got closest on 5, Andrea Campbell took out 16, and Carol Fraser got the 18th. Sue Williamson scored a birdie on 17 to win the random birdie hole this week. The ball run down went to 80 Nett. I will bring you the results of the Championships next week, if the weather is kind to us and we get to play. Till then, stay safe and good golfing. JUNE 13 2012 |

With the cooler weather, we all like to get stuck into the larger landscaping jobs which we tend to put off through summer. Building new garden beds, renewing garden edging, creating a deck, fencing and building kids play structures are just some of these. And we all love the look and feel of timber. Copper chrome arsenate (CCA) is a timber treatment used to protect timbers – especially pine – from rot and termites. Australia, New Zealand and the USA are the three largest users of CCA treated timber in the world. A couple of years ago legislation kicked-in banning the sale of CCA treated timbers for use in structures which are likely to come into contact with people, particularly children. This includes garden furniture, picnic tables, exterior seating, play equipment, patio and domestic decking timbers and hand railings. But CCA treated timbers can still be used for garden edging, deck framing, fencing, screens, structural timbers, cladding, fascias, battening, retaining wall timbers, pergola timbers and posts. The authorities found that there was insufficient information for them to be satisfied that CCA treated timber was safe when used in situations where the community are likely to come into frequent and intimate contact. They also note that there is a risk – although not large – of the arsenic leaching into garden soil from CCA treated edging. Plants growing near the edging may take the arsenic up through their roots. While CCA treated timbers may be safe to generally use around the backyard, it is important that we try to protect the safety of ourselves and our families as much as possible. To reduce your risks, you should: • Cover any existing skin wounds before working with CCA timber • Wear a quality dust mask when cutting CCA timber • Keep food and drinks away from areas where you are cutting CCA timber • Wash your hands and face after working with CCA timber • Never burn CCA timber in a fireplace or barbecue • Don’t use the saw dust or wood shavings as mulch or in compost • Don’t use CCA timber where small children or animals might chew on the wood • Consider alternative timbers or treatments where possible One alternative is to use cypress pine. It is naturally termite, borer and rot resistant without having to use chemicals. Cypress pine is cheaper than using hardwood, and can last just as long in landscaping as treated timbers. The biggest thing is that you end up with a product which is safe for children, but can last longer than other types of timber.

Custody Conundrum



Just for Laughs

18 19


A man and his wife were getting a divorce, but the custody of their children posed a problem. The mother jumped to her feet and protested to the judge that since she had brought the children into the world, she should retain custody of them. The man also wanted custody of his children.

The judge asked for his side of the story too. After a long moment of silence, the man rose from his chair and replied,"Judge, when I put a dollar in a vending machine and a coke comes out, does the coke belong to me or to the machine?" Submitted by Naomi Preston, Landsborough
