Hi Everyone...

What's Happening February 2018 15 Thursday Future projects for Celebrate Glasshouse Country will be on the agenda next week when the group meets at the QCWA Beerwah Hall from 11am12.30pm. Interested community members are encouraged to come along and share their thoughts. To find out more you can contact Judy Tomlinson on 0408 445 988, or email info@ celebrateGC.com.au.

As we work through the week, putting all the individual stories together, I don’t always see any trends or themes emerging. However, as I sit back and look at the final copy that is ready to go to print, I am struck by just how many stories there are about locals and what they give, whether that be through volunteering their time, sponsoring, or emotional and spiritual support for others. Our cover story features three well-known Glasshouse Country locals who have contributed a combined volunteer service to SES of an impressive 102 years. On page 5 we feature a story about the Glass House & District Cricket Club and how they have formally recognised the decades of support that the Elk family have provided the club. Maleny Arts Council acknowledge the legacy left by their Past President and committee members, and Peachester State School says thanks to a wonderful couple who have been teaching Religious Education at the school for nearly 40 years! I hope you enjoy the read this week!

17 Saturday A free SuperFeast Seminar with Mason Taylor will be hosted by Maleny IGA at the Maleny Community Centre between 10am and 12.30pm.

Cricket club honours Elk family Over the past twelve months the Glasshouse Districts Cricket Club have undertaken a significant renovation to their net training facilities which has involved many hours of volunteer time and great support from numerous local businesses. Club president Jeremy Shultz said the club is proud of what they have created and they reckon the quality of the facility is unrivalled on the Sunshine Coast. As a fitting tribute to a family that has been pivotal to the clubs on-going success, the facility will be known as Elks Family Training Facility. The Elks family have contributed in so many ways over the years from playing, volunteering, as committee members, coaching, as the Club Patron and as generous financial backers. The late Don Elks commenced playing, with the family’s playing days extended up until very recently when Murray decided that golf was a much better way to spend his Saturdays. The Elks family played more than 700 matches for Glasshouse, Southern Districts, now the Glasshouse Districts Cricket Club, with a combined contribution with the bat and ball over these years of 11,244 career runs and more than 300 wickets. With regards to their contribution ‘off the field’, the GDCC has been very lucky to have had many members of the Elks family who have volunteered countless hours, be it in the

many years of various Club Committee Roles, Junior Coaching roles and the numerous other volunteering roles that were fulfilled. Don Elks was the Club Patron for many years before his passing and now John Elks has taken up this role with the club. Don, John and Murray Elks are also Life Members of the club. The Elks family has also been a longtime financial John Elks, Murray Elks, Ashley Baartz, Jeremy Schultz (President), Jill backer of GDCC and on Forster (Secretary), Thelma Elks, Warren Raddatz (President, Glasshouse many occasions it was Mountains Sports Club) and Malcolm Elks through their generosity that the club was able to Killick, Levi Pearce and Stephen Forster. continue to operate. “We would also like to thank the businesses Greggo on the Digga, Ironbark Timber Products This financial backing has also been in the form and Wildhorse Turf for their generous donations of our longest sponsor relationship with locallyof machinery, time and materials. based Mountain View Poultry. “Finally, special thanks must be made to the “Without the Elks family the GDCC wouldn’t be in the position it is today and the club will be forever individual who was the architect behind the whole project, Ash Baartz.

Strong future for Maleny Arts Council By Judith Ross-Smith Back in 2013, Maleny Arts Council was facing a grave final future and there was discussion about closing the organisation down. Fortunately Professor Jennifer Radbourne decided to take on the role of president with Pauline Robinson as secretary and together they developed a strategic plan that worked; and Jennifer has now handed over to her successor a highly successful and financially viable organisation. At last week’s AGM Jennifer said: “We developed a three-year plan that included stronger engagement with members, raising the membership fees, investigating a philanthropy program and we introduced a number of business strategies. “The local organisation had maintained a sound financial reserve through careful programming and good marketing strategies and it had maintained the support of the community,” she said. Retiring from her position as Professor of Arts and Education at Deakin University, Jennifer brought many skills, including business and management, to the Arts Council. Jennifer came to Maleny with her husband, Kevin (who also had a career in the Arts), and they became involved in the community, especially as members of the Arts Council. She uses her knowledge on local boards including the Sunshine Coast Grammar School, and the Sunshine Coast Arts Advisory Board that is soon to publish its arts plan for the region.

Do you have a Qi deficiency? Do you suffer from cold hands and feet, fatigue, lethargy, edema/swelling, bloating, poor circulation, sluggish digestion, hypothyroidism, poor appetite or shallow breathing? Acupuncture restores the balance of Qi. It is also a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and improving homeostasis by triggering your body’s natural response to wellbeing. Kaz has studied under Sensei Shimamura since 2014 and will be traveling to Japan again in March this year for one on one training. The aim of our treatments is to balance St Qi. You’re probably wondering what this means to you! It means balance, more energy, it can reduce stress and anxiety and the impact these conditions have on you. Our clients claim they feel calmer, more energetic and less susceptible to sickness and stress. You can improve your health and sense of wellbeing by choosing acupuncture at SoulQi.

Another member to retire is Wendy Harper, after four years on the committee. Wendy’s experience as a professional musician over 20 years has been vital to the organisation, as well as her skills in managing the website and the Facebook page. Her late husband, Colin Harper MBE, established the Queensland Pops Orchestra and together they managed it for 19 years. Wendy sang with many professional groups, including the Lyric Opera Company of Queensland, and taught piano. She was a mainstay of the acapella group ‘Tapestry’ in Maleny. The new committee will elect a successor to Professor Radbourne at their next meeting.

Make a difference and shave This year the Leukaemia Foundation marks its 20th year of World’s Greatest Shave and, as you learn about the amazing work they do in supporting those battling blood cancers, you can see why the fundraising initiative is still just as important today. Beerwah mum Jenna Sulter was first diagnosed in 2009 when she was just 24. She developed an unusual pain in her chest and sores in her nose that weren’t healing. After spending two days in bed she broke out in brown spots, developed muscle aches and had difficulty walking. Her GP ran some blood tests and the next morning she was told the devastating news that they suspected she had Leukaemia. She was immediately admitted to hospital, where one day later she ended up in ICU. After her diagnosis with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia was confirmed she underwent three rounds of chemotherapy over the next few months and was fortunate to go into remission. During this harrowing time, Jenna was supported by her family, including then boyfriend, and now husband, Lance. However, only two years later, and eight months after becoming a first-time mother, Jenna relapsed, requiring two rounds of chemotherapy to prepare her for an Allogenic Bone Marrow Transplant. The Leukaemia Foundation were a saving grace for both Jenna and her family. The first time she was sick, they provided support to her mother, who spent every day beside her

Lance, Jenna and Jasper in hospital, helping her work through financial support documents and checking in on her emotional and mental health as Jenna’s carer. Second time around, the Leukaemia Foundation ensured that Jenna, her eight-month old son Jasper and her mother spent five months, free of charge, in Leukaemia Foundation accommodation in Brisbane. Jenna is really appreciative that the Leukaemia Foundation took so much stress and worry off their shoulders so she could concentrate on her treatment and made sure they were very comfortable during this difficult time for her family. Now Jenna and Lance’s son is six years old and it is important to them that he grows up understanding the importance of helping others in times of need. The World’s Greatest Shave is a nationwide event that runs from March 14-18.

Community News MCU support for clubs continues Approved soccer training for kids aged 18 months -7 years

FREE TRIAL Classes Saturday Mornings at Landsborough Primary School

Since Maleny Credit Union’s Club Rewards program was set up in the middle of 2017, local clubs have already benefited to the tune of $8,000. The funds have been distributed to 32 individual notfor-profit organisations, with Maleny Neighbourhood Centre leading the way, with $1,550 being donated to their emergency relief fund. Maleny Neighbourhood Centre Coordinator/ Development Worker Nooreen Harris said the donations from Maleny Credit Union’s Club Rewards have made a significant impact on their yearly budget for emergency relief. “This money enables us to purchase food items, fuel vouchers and IGA vouchers to assist local vulnerable families and individuals,” Nooreen said. “The MNC is partly self-funded unlike other centres and all donations make a substantial difference to fundraising efforts we undertake each year.” Maleny Credit Union’s Nicole Hilton said that when they launched this program they didn’t know the impact it would have on the community.

Joe Eastmure from Maleny Rural Fire Brigade and MCU CEO Bob Malcolm with Nooreen Harris from Maleny Neighbourhood Centre “We are bombarded with letters, emails, phone calls and drop ins thanking us for the financial assistance. “It’s such an easy way you can help local clubs, all we ask is that you put us on your shopping list when you are looking for finance. “If you decide to go with MCU then the club of your choice will benefit,” Nicole said.

Outdoor movie and singing success

Last Saturday night the Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce held their rescheduled ‘Movie under the Stars’ after being rained out in December.

Find us on Facebook facebook.com/glasshousecountry&malenynews

Chamber President Ursula Starkovsky was really pleased with how successful the evening was, with around 200 locals staking their spots on picnic rugs and camp chairs outside the visitor information centre for a great night of free entertainment with the kids’ movie ‘Sing’. The Glass House Mountains Rotary Club were also on hand to serve up the sausage sizzle which proved rather popular with them selling out, and apparently Ursula was kept very busy serving up popcorn. Thanks to the Sunshine Coast Council for funding the event and the Chamber of Commerce for organising it.

Groot the Ute fundraises for charity

Fundraising rally vehicle ‘Groot the Ute’ will this year be used to channel support towards GIVIT, the charity that connects people directly with local donations. Since purchasing the “ultimate bloke magnet” truck in early 2015, owner Ian Rodgers from R&R Hire Services has participated in a number of epic adventure rallies that have supported good causes. This year ‘Groot’ will be involved in the Road Boss Rally from July 9-18 which starts at the Story Bridge in Brisbane and heads to Booligal (via the mighty Murray). In 2017 the Road Boss Rally raised over $264,000 for GIVIT and this year organisers are hoping to raise even more for the grass roots charity that “helps people in real need”. Ian is excited to be involved and is also looking forward to competing in the rally with a ‘new’ offsider – his son John. “It’s great to be able to be involved and to branch out and support different causes,” Ian said. “I’m looking forward to participating in the Road Boss Rally which has been raising funds for around 30 years.” Fundraising efforts for ‘Groot’ ahead of the July rally have now kicked off via word of mouth and future plans to raise awareness include sausage sizzles/ barbeque fundraisers. For anyone who would like to donate, or would be interested in more information, visit www.roadbossrally.com.au. To support ‘Groot’, go to the Road Boss Rally page and click on the ‘donate to a car/team’ button and select Car 311 – ‘Groot’. More information about GIVIT is available at www.givit.org.au.

Contributed by Sally Joyce Peachester State School recently presented Annette and Ray Eland with a Richmond Birdwing Butterfly Vine in appreciation for 38 years of volunteering at the school. Annette and Ray joined our school community in 1980 when two of their four children attended the school. Since then they have volunteered their services in Religious Instruction (RI) for many years. They have also volunteered their services in many other capacities such as tree planting and kitchen/garden classes over the years. We wish them well in their retirement from their RI role at the school, but we know we will see them flutter in from time to time. Thank you for enriching the spiritual lives of our children over the years.

Since 1887, on or near the first Friday in March every year, millions of Christians have gathered worldwide to pray for the issues of family violence, child abuse, human trafficking, and other forms of injustice. A spokesperson for World Day of Prayer said: “Once again this year our local communities will be hosting combined services on Friday March 2 as part of this important religious event.” Services will be held at 9.30am at Maleny Uniting Church at 1284-1290 LandsboroughMaleny Road and at Church on the Rise at Beerwah, 27 Beerwah Parade. “This year’s prayerful support will be directed at the 540,000 inhabitants of the Republic of Suriname, on the north-eastern coast of South

America,” the spokesperson said. “Despite a history steeped in slavery and political coups, this tiny nation has achieved remarkable progress since its independence in 1975. “Suriname enjoys multi-ethnicity and biodiversity, freedom of religion, free primary and secondary education, and free medical care for children and seniors. But behind closed doors, family violence, abuse and neglect are ongoing issues. Children are particularly vulnerable, many growing up in orphanages or one-parent families. “While education is free, there is no compulsory school attendance. Child labour in the form of street selling is common, but of far more serious concern is the fact that many children are labouring in the gold mines of Suriname.”

You Said It Improvements for Landsborough

Last year I contacted the council after noticing that there was not a single public recycling bin in the ‘downtown’ area of Landsborough, despite there being at least seven food businesses selling take-away drinks. To their credit, Sunshine Coast Council sent someone out to have a look, and installed a recycling bin outside of the railway station on Cribb Street. The council is now doing a ‘Landsborough Place Making’ project, and on Saturday I attended one of their public consultation sessions at Landsborough School of Arts. I got the chance to talk about the need for more recycling bins and other improvements. This is a good opportunity for other Landsborough people to have their say about ways to improve our lovely town, particularly with the big changes as the railway crossing is redesigned. If you missed the public consultations, there is still an online survey at haveyoursay.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au. Liz Harris Sustainable You & Me Reusable & Upcycled Homewares

Codeine by prescription

I applauded the idea of making Codeine products a script item; 30mg have been for a long time, but 8mg tablets were an over the counter item. I feel there’s no difference, other than your doctor being aware of what you take. Or should I say I thought that; but it is different, because the 8mg version has been taken off the market by Codis and Disprin Forte, leaving only Aspalgin as a dispersible tablet. Before 1st February you could buy these over the counter for around $8 and now going to the doctor to prescribe this, if a bulk billing GP, it is then dispensed at the chemist for $16.40. Panadeine Forte is dispensed at script price for 30mg Codeine. Why is a script needed for a Non-PBS product, because it would be cheaper to take a 30mg Codeine product with a script and control the same pain? I broke both my arms back in December when we had the major blackout in Beerwah for eight hours. Accident as it was, pain management is not easy and when the cost is doubled for minor amounts of Codeine I can imagine anyone that may be addicted going to different doctors and getting a script for the higher dose and going to different doctors for scripts.The idea was great to control the taking of this product, but only to ensure the doctor knows what you take. Anyone that is disabled, pensioner or needing some pain relief pain is finding the pain no longer controllable because of the price of pain relief. The Health Minister and the Government need to understand the headaches these people suffer as does the general public. Shame I can’t afford pain medication any longer. My GP was giving me a script for the lower dose, but it is unaffordable now. Yvonne Taylor Beerwah

Concern over blind faith

I am appalled by PM Turnbull's blind faith in trickle-down economics. He displaced the egregious Tony Abbott with the mantra that he was going to overhaul economic policy in this country. We are still waiting for this overhaul. One case in point is negative gearing. In a rejoinder to ALP policy he said the heavens will fall in if we restricted negative gearing. Yet his own Treasury contradicted him when they said that curbs on negative gearing would have a minimal impact on the rental market. No one is opposed to mum and dad investors negatively gearing one or two properties, but 30 to 40 are excessive. There are a number of Federal parliamentarians in this category. Why should the Australian taxpayer subsidise such greed and avarice? Go on Malcolm, have the courage of your convictions to stand up to the vested interests in your party and the real estate industry and implement curbs on negative gearing. The way the PM is heading he is surely handing the keys to the Lodge in 2018 to Bill Shorten. Roy Clogstoun Maleny

Glass House Hall

Yes, it is that time of year again to have our Glass House Mountains Community Hall AGM. As most of you are aware we have a very nice and adequate hall in the township of Glass House Mountains for which we lack support from the local and surrounding community. 2016 saw the centenary celebrations of the hall, and the committee put a lot of hard work into the celebrations which were very successful. We would like to extend an invitation to attend our up and coming Annual General Meeting to be held on Sunday February 25 at 4pm at the hall at Coonowrin Road, Glass House Mountains. We need some younger mature people to join our committee. It requires a bit of volunteer work around the hall and attendance at our monthly meetings on the fourth Sunday of each month at 4pm. This facility is for the public, you and I, to use. We look forward to your support in the future. Thank you. April J.Anderson Secretary Glass House Mountains Community Hall

Food for thought

Geoffrey Blainey in his book ‘Triumph of the Nomads,’ records that the First Australians had not learned to boil water, leading to some patronising commentary in the media. One could ask why would they would bother to boil water when they were not, unlike us, careless about protecting sources of drinking water from contamination. In another aspect of technology development, however, the Aborigines were tens of thousands of years ahead of the rest of the world. They had discovered that carving a particular shaped projectile that, when launched at sufficient speed, flew through the air on a horizontal path and returned to the launcher. It is barely more than one hundred years since the rest of the world has discovered the operational shape of the aircraft wing that causes it to lift when pushed along fast enough, just like the boomerang!

Who owns that tree?

The Hinterland community’s post-storm cleanup is clouded by uncertainty. Beerwah residents have told State Member for Caloundra Mark McArdle that they are still trying to make sense of who is responsible for trees along a creek on the edge of their property which were damaged in a severe storm that impacted the Hinterland in December of last year. It comes as Lorelle Gottardi last week showed Mr McArdle the area where a number of trees came down on her parents' property in Beerwah last year. However, doubt remains over who is responsible for one damaged tree that threatens to reach their home if impacted by another storm. “The SES Volunteers and the council arborist who came out to my parents’ property did an amazing job assisting with the removal of the trees that fell during the storm. We are immensely thankful for their efforts,” Ms Gottardi said. “However, my parents' property has a councilcontrolled creek which runs along the property line and there is one very large gum tree on the bank of the creek that is leaning toward the house. “Council has made it clear that the tree is our responsibility to remove but that just doesn’t seem right given that they generally manage the creek and its vegetation.” Mr McArdle said that a review needs to take place into how the Sunshine Coast Council and State Government departments assess trees that pose a potential risk pre and post a major storm. “The circumstances of Ms Gottardi’s parents is one that I hear time and time again,” Mr McArdle said. “A storm has occurred and a number of trees have been compromised. However, no one wants to take responsibility for the trees that are potentially weakened or down, leaving the home owner at the mercy of the next weather event. “I have written to the council and the Department of Natural Resources asking for some clarification as to who controls the creek running through this residential property but I have my doubts that anyone will want to claim responsibility for the tree. “What happens when the next storm comes through – will these trees fall on a house or cause flooding when they land in the creek? We must ensure there is better support for home owners when it comes to taking risky trees down.” “We live in a region where storm damage is frequent. While we can’t predict the actual damage a storm will inflict, we can help ensure that residents feel safe from trees on State or council land, and better support them in the aftermath of a storm.”

Local construction industry brings family businesses to area Michelle Cirson couldn’t believe her luck when a job opportunity for her husband allowed them to relocate to the Sunshine Coast. “I grew up in Wide Bay, and always wanted to live on the Sunshine Coast,” she said. “Now that we’re here, I can’t believe we didn’t move sooner! The place is beautiful, the people are wonderful and there’s plenty going on in the trade/construction space.” Michelle runs two businesses, Tricks of Your Trade and AdjudiCare. “Both businesses go hand in hand – ‘Tricks’ started itself, actually. I had been working for a builder in Brisbane and when I finished university I decided to move on. “Within a few weeks I had half a dozen subcontractors calling me asking me to work for them as a contract administrator. I didn’t want to say no to anyone, so I raced out and got an ABN and worked for them all on an hourly rate. “They thought it was great – no locked-in contract, I paid my own tax and superannuation, had my own WorkCover, etc. “At the time contract administrators were highly sought after and being paid exorbitant salaries, without this type of arrangement subcontractors simply couldn’t afford to pay professional qualified staff at the going rate – nor justify it on their overhead as a fulltime role. “By taking an hourly rate, I could come in one day a week or one day a month, or work every day if they wanted me to get them through that particular busy period. Michelle then suddenly had smaller scale (tier 2 and 3) builders calling, and it just went from there. “And so Tricks of Your Trade was born. “We now also handle quality and safety advice such as work method statements, specialist risk assessments and inspection test plans too. And I had to get a few extra people to help me do all the work of course! “Tricks makes for a great family business, but I quickly found that one of the most common problems my clients were encountering was the need to debt recover for unpaid payment claims. “I was familiar with the construction adjudication regime from my studies and previous construction experience, and I was spending a lot of time making sure that my clients were complying

with the requirements of the Building and Construction Industry Payments Act 2004 (Qld) (‘BCIPA’) to protect their payment security, and cash flow. One client in particular needed to do five adjudications in one year! “The thing is, I’m not a lawyer – but you don’t have to be to use adjudication. In fact, most adjudicators aren’t even lawyers. But you do need to know how to use the BCIPA regime inside out to use it because of the strict timeframes, the notice requirements and so on. “I needed specialist staff, and so we decided to start a dedicated construction adjudication support consultancy, and that’s how we became AdjudiCare. "What a lot of people don’t realise is that (most of the time) you don’t need to actually go to adjudication to get paid," explained Michelle. “Once my clients understand how the BCIPA regime works, and they understand what to do if they’re not paid, suddenly they feel like they have regained control of their own cash flow. This isn’t the type of stuff your standard book keeper or accountant knows about – in fact a few of those service providers have become our clients too! “When our clients’ customers see that our clients know what they’re doing, and their paperwork is professional and compliant, they simply pick someone else to short pay. I know that sounds horrible, but eventually we plan to get around to all subcontractors and builders, and ideally, there will be nobody left to pick on.” Queensland is about to go through a major legislation change in this space, so it’s more important now than ever to get across it all. Between Tricks and AdjudiCare, they provide pretty much any construction specific business service you need: debt recovery, project management, contract administration, quality and safety advice. The only things they don’t try to do is accounting, human resources or legal advice. If you would like to contact Michelle, you can do so via her websites.

School News Cheer Cup

Contributed by Steven Jeffery Beerwah State High School held its annual ‘Cheer Cup Competition’ to kick start the year with each of the four houses facing off against each other to be judged for participation, noise level, enthusiasm, creativity and appearance. All of the houses started their first practice sessions a little insipid but were drawn together by the fantastic House Captains and Senior School Leaders. The Year Sevens followed suit, set the bench mark and inspired their respective houses with enthusiasm and gusto. By the final practice the performances were just coming together and the stage was set for an exciting showdown. Miketeebumulgrai performed first, cranking out an ACDC cheer with a decibel reading of 102.4. Tunbubudla followed them and raised the volume to 102.7 decibels with the help of a rapping House Captain. Ngungun performed third with a decibel reading of 102. Tibberoowuccum performed last and came in at 102.1 decibels. Winners of the Cheer Cup for the third year in a row were Miketeebumulgrai on 138, second went to Ngungun on 136, third to Tunbubudla on 133 and fourth was Tibberoowuccum on 131pts. Cheer Cup proved to be an exciting start to the year with house spirit in abundance and new students gaining a sense of belonging. Yes, it was messy, loud and chaotic – but the students loved it.

Peachester State School caught her eye some years back when driving past and she is thrilled to now be the principal of “that school” she’d declared she would love to teach at one day. The Peachester community would like to extend a warm welcome to Mrs Fillery and her family and all the new families that have joined our school family this year.

Safe, confident and happy Glass House Early Education Centre offers a locally based caring and secure environment to allow your child to thrive. Staffed by dedicated long-term early childhood professionals, each and every member of the centre team is committed to providing exceptional quality care. For many families their first introduction to child care is through the Toddler Room (15 months to 2 years). At this early age, one of the key advantages of having the same longterm staff is that young children can continue to securely develop bonds allowing them to prosper emotionally and socially. For mums returning to work, the knowledge that their child/children are being cared for in a secure, stimulating and most importantly consistent environment provides additional piece of mind. The centre staff realise the importance of supporting young children (and their families!) to settle in well and new families are always welcomed into the Glass House Early Education Centre ‘family’. Team member Aimee Duncan is lead educator in the Toddler Room and brings over eight years’ experience in the childcare industry to her role. This age group is very interactive and engaging and a lot of planning and development goes into setting up a fun, stimulating and educational program for the children. This is an age where individual routines are incorporated into room routines, and there is a big focus on starting to develop independence skills. Children are encouraged to try activities for themselves and develop self-care skills like washing and drying hands and using a face washer.

Zac with Aimee

“This is a lovely age – the children are at a naturally inquisitive age which is so much fun as they really start to develop their independence,” says Aimee. Aimee enjoys supporting the social, emotional and physical learning journey of her Toddler Room children. Many of the programs are guided by the children’s interests, and sensory play, music and singing, books and outside play in the native inspired garden are all popular activities. “The kids love to explore – especially in our beautiful outdoor play area. It’s wonderful to see them having fun while also developing their sensory and gross motor skills.” Believing that everyone has the right to good quality affordable childcare, Centre Co-ordinator Ange Hardey feels that the centre is unique in the way it offers a number of additional valueadded services and activities at no additional cost to their very competitive fees. Some of the interactive and fee inclusive programs include the popular ‘Hey Dee Ho’ music and movement immersion program (which commences for children in the Toddler Room), Cosmic Kids Yoga and an introduction to Auslan sign language. Developing healthy eating habits is also strongly promoted at the Centre and children from six months and up are given specially made food supplied by centre caterers the ‘Healthy Cooking Company’. The age appropriate meals are made

with wholesome ingredients that contain no nasties including no preservatives and no added salt or sugar and the meals can be modified to suit dietary requirements – this meal service is all included in fees. The centre also has a full time mini-bus free service to provide home pick-ups and drop off for the younger children (and also school drop offs and pick-ups too if needed for older children). The centre provides children the access to a wide range of fun and educational opportunities with the aim of ensuring children are encouraged to feel safe, confident and happy. For an obligation free tour of the centre, or even to just ask a few questions, please call Ange and the team on 5438 7311, or call in to 2 Page Street, Glass House Mountains (no appointment necessary).

Federal Support for Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital

I will once again be offering my Local Heroes Grants this year to provide a bit of a helping hand to community groups or individuals participating in local, state, national or international endeavours. The grants have proven very popular since their inception in January 2016 and I am thrilled to be able to continue to contribute in this way. Closing dates for this year are as follows: Round 1 – Monday February 26 Round 2 – Monday May 28 Round 3 – Monday August 27 Round 4 – Monday November 26 Four nominees will be chosen in each round and you can apply through my website at www.andrewpowell.com.au.

Our natural environment is one of our community’s most important assets. Many people who live in the Hinterland rely on the environment for their living, while many others chose to move here because of its natural beauty and its fascinating wildlife. In my very first speech in Parliament I spoke about our responsibility to ensure that the environment is maintained and protected for future generations. In just the last three months, the Government has invested nearly half a million extra dollars in projects to preserve native wildlife on the Sunshine Coast, and I will be fighting for more in the future. As part of that in January I was delighted to be able to announce a $250,000 Federal Grant for the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital. The grant will go toward upgrading bird and koala rehabilitation facilities, as well as turtle recovery ponds and pools. New industrial grade washing machines will also be included and will make a huge difference to how efficiently and sustainably they can operate. We are fortunate to have this facility in the Hinterland, the largest and busiest wildlife hospital of its kind in the world, and I am proud to have been able to support it. I look forward to going back and seeing the new pools in action.

January Listening Posts

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came to one of my Listening Posts during the last week of January. I was overwhelmed by the response. We had queues building up of people wanting to give me their views at many of the 14 Listening Posts I held all over our community. In the Hinterland I spent time with my marquee and my clipboard at Landsborough, Mooloolah, Bellvista, Maleny, Peachester, Glass House Mountains, Eudlo, Beerburrum, and Beerwah. Local residents spoke to me about a range of issues including mobile phone reception, preserving and promoting the Glass House Mountains, and improving bicycle infrastructure in the region. Most of all I was impressed by the strength of feeling in our community against the proposed construction of a casino in Maroochydore, and by the very many of you who agreed to sign my petition against it. I will be using this column in the coming months to update you on the progress of that campaign. Thank you again for coming along to my Listening Posts and please remember that you can contact me on the details below to tell me about the issues that matter to you at any time.

Division 5 - Sunshine Coast Mooloolah Breakfast Forum

The Mooloolah Breakfast Forum welcomed Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford to its meeting last week to discuss potential tourism opportunities, and signage on Steve Irwin Way. Mr Latchford invited the business and residents to compile some examples that showcase the best of the local area. He was extremely impressed with his first visit to Mooloolah. Visit Sunshine Coast will then arrange for a delegation from the tourism bodies to join the community to discuss the nature based opportunities. This will then enable Mooloolah to be appropriately advertised as a destination not to be missed. If you would like to submit your ideas or find out more information, contact the Mooloolah Valley Association, Ken Grant from Mooloolah IGA, or contact my office. The next meeting of the Mooloolah Breakfast Forum will be held at 7.30am on Thursday March 1.

Thanks to the community for giving our young visitors such a great day.

Make health and exercise your priority

Funerals from $1670.00

Last year Sally Prior emigrated from the UK to live with her family in Glass House Mountains. Sally, who is 73, had previously been a keen fitness devotee and continued to be one long after she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. As her condition developed, she began to struggle with things like balance and getting up and down from her seat. At the suggestion of her family, she decided to join them at Beerwah’s Plus Fitness 24/7, in the hope that it would help improve her overall mobility and ensure her condition didn’t deteriorate further. For the last six months she has attended regular weekly sessions with personal trainer Kris. She loves these sessions and finds that Kris’s support and guidance keep her motivated to keep trying. Sally said: “My condition of MS will never improve, however maintaining my level of fitness and movement is my ongoing goal. “I’m enjoying life in the best way I can, and Kris helps me achieve that. I have made some great improvements since working with him and love the social aspect of coming to the gym too,” Sally said. She highly recommends adding a gym visit to everyone’s weekly plan, especially as you reach a more mature age – it’s also a lovely way to meet others. In just over six months Sally has improved constantly. By making her health and exercise a priority she has improved her wellbeing and movement and been an inspiration to those around her.

Fixed Fee Intitial Consultation Available Beerwah Law, formerly King Tobin Lawyers, are your local solicitors and have been established in Beerwah for over 30 years. Tracy King and her team are here to advise and assist you in legal areas relevant to Seniors including estate planning, estate administration, Wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney, Advance Health Directives and entry and exit into retirement villages. We are a general practice and therefore we cover most areas of the law for you. We are ‘Your Lawyers For Life’.

Wills To ensure that the administration for your estate is as easy as possible for your loved ones we strongly recommend that a qualified solicitor draft your Will for you. Unfortunately, the courts are full of matters which are being litigated purely because a ‘home-made Will’ cannot be interpreted sensibly, has various interpretations or has not adequately considered all matters required. A well drafted Will also takes into account matters other than assets within the estate, such as superannuation and life insurance, to ensure that all of your assets are dealt with consistently. Importantly, a general discussion with us about the nature and extent of your assets and liabilities and our advice to you in that regard, can save your executors a great deal of time, money and stress.

the Guardianship and Administration Tribunal for an Order. Such an Order can take a considerable period of time and involves a great deal of work. It also can lead to ill-will and disputes between your loved ones.

Estate Administration This is a core part of our practice. We make this process as easy as is possible in your circumstances and tailor our service to your needs. Executors of estates are subject to very onerous obligations. We ensure that these obligations are fulfilled and that there are therefore no adverse implications for you. Please contact us to discuss your legal needs and make an appointment for us to assist you.

F:

Enduring Power of Attorney It is our opinion that everyone must have an Enduring Power of Attorney. In some respects, it is more important than a Will, as without one you may be left in a state of legal limbo with no-one able to legally look after your financial affairs or make health decisions for you. This, unfortunately, regularly happens to people who do not have an Enduring Power of Attorney and who find themselves in hospital but are assessed as not being able to return home. If they are incapable of making an Enduring Power of Attorney then an Application needs to be made through QCAT to

By Lea Parkes After meeting in Brisbane just over 60 years ago, born and bred Maleny local Stan Collard and his lovely wife Gloria have shared an interesting life together working and living around the state, including 12 years in Rockhampton while Stan was a Country Party Senator for Queensland. However, a few years ago whilst in their 70s, they decided to retire in Maleny. Gloria and Stan knew that their two daughters who lived in Brisbane would have liked them to settle closer, but they had their heart set on life in Maleny. While the last few years have seen them both slow down a little and need more assistance in their daily lives, they are pleased that they stuck to their decision to head to Maleny and are thankful that they discovered RangeCare. Stan and Gloria are quick to sing the praises of the quality of the organisation and the wonderful service that they receive from the staff who have made it possible for them live a comfortable life together in their own home. They settled happily into a modern home at Sandstone Gardens where their walls are covered with framed photos of special family memories and achievements. Stan is very proud that they have been able to maintain their independence in their own home and still have space for their daughters and their son, who lives in Biloela, to come and visit them. These days they don’t get out as much as they used to, and it is easy to see that it is not just the support that the RangeCare staff provide on their twice daily visits, but also the connections that they have with those staff which are important to their daily lives. Stan described one of their carers as a “one off and a bit of a character”, which seemed to me a perfect match for Stan’s personality. He may have physically slowed down a little, but the former Senator is still very sharp and clearly enjoyed sharing his views on a range of topics.

10% SENIORS DISCOUNT Stan made sure I understood that he was a parliamentarian and not a politician. For the record, and according to Stan, a parliamentarian is someone who is concerned with future generations whereas politicians are concerned with future elections! With the couple’s 60th wedding anniversary coming up on March 3, Stan, with tongue firmly in cheek, happily told me and reminded Gloria how lucky she was to have met and married him and that it was his capacity for tolerance that had made him excellent marriage material over the years. Stan is also clearly very proud of the opportunities as a parliamentarian that he was able to share with Gloria, such as in 1980 when the Queen and Prince Phillip visited Australia and the Queen officially opened the iconic High Court building in Canberra. At this event Prince Phillip spoke to Gloria asking her why she was there, and she politely answered that she was just there with her spouse, and Prince Phillip (probably one of the world’s best known other halves) confided that he knew that feeling. Stan also suggested that another secret to staying married for almost 60 years could also have been assisted by the time he spent away from home, particularly while he was travelling in his role as a parliamentarian.

“Being home less often, probably made it easier for Gloria to appreciate me, and didn’t give her enough time to pick on me,” Stan quipped. When I commented on their lovely wedding photos, and the beautiful gowns both the bride and her bridesmaids were wearing, Stan quickly informed me that Gloria made them all herself, which by today’s standards is pretty impressive. In the way they interact together it is easy to see that Stan still thinks Gloria is pretty impressive! While Gloria may be a little more reserved in sharing her opinions, she thinks that it is important to be able to appreciate each other, and I have sneaky suspicions it isn’t just Stan who has a great capacity for tolerance.

Share housing for seniors

By Sonia Clark We often hear the phrase “home is where the heart is”, but what happens if you are an older person who can’t afford a home? Housing affordability is not far from the headlines these days, however, more often than not the news stories focus on issues faced by younger people trying to break into the housing market – not older people facing similar challenges. Community driven solutions are gaining in popularity and over the last few years there has been an increase in co-housing or shared housing models with growing interest from the older people indicating that this is definitely an area of increasing need. A few years ago, following on from a change in personal circumstances, Linda Mina found herself left with a mortgage and struggling to make ends meet. In her 60s, with her children having left home, Linda felt the only way to afford any sort of life was to sell her house and rent. “When I looked at the cost of rentals I soon realized I could not afford even a one-bedroom apartment on my pension,” Linda said. “So, remembering the share houses from my youth, I decided to check on Gumtree, where I found most share adverts were younger people not interested in sharing with a mature aged person." So Linda decided to create a group on Facebook that would allow seniors to seek or offer share accommodation. Last year ‘Seniors Share Houses Sunshine Coast’ Facebook was established and it currently has over 480 members. Linda soon realised that many mature people also wanted a space to share stories and information and so ‘Seniors Connect’ was also established. To find out more go to www.facebook.com/groups/1590650011231482/ (Seniors Connect) or www.facebook.com/groups/681536018691198/ (Seniors Share Houses Sunshine Coast).

‘Stirling’ move for Lember & Williams

Lember and Williams are excited at the move of their Maleny offices to smart new premises – ‘Stirling on Bunya’ opposite the Maleny Primary School. Principal Carolyn Williams, who has 35 years of experience in several areas of law said that many Australians believe that filling out a will kit from their local newsagency, or downloaded from the internet, will cover them when they pass away. “In a modern and more complex world, it won’t and at worst, could see your real wishes disregarded,” she explains. Carolyn invites you to make an appointment to discuss, and seek her advice in preparing not just your will, but your enduring powers of attorney, health directives and putting into place testamentary trusts. Visit the Lember & Williams (LAW) website for more info at www.landw.com.au or to book an appointment at either the new Maleny office or at their Caboolture premises. The LAW Wills and Estate lawyers will work effectively not just with you – but with your accountant, financial planner and other professionals – ensuring a thorough consideration of all relevant estate and succession planning issues. •

Take ownership of your retirement future As we look towards planning retirement living options, a safe and welcoming environment, freedom and flexibility, access to well appointed facilities and an engaged and connected community are key considerations for many people. One consideration that can be overlooked is that lifestyle and health can sometimes change unexpectedly and that it is best to not “wait until tomorrow” to securely plan your retirement living options. Tony and Ann Eccles are happily-settled residents at Caloundra Rise Retirement Estate located at Village Way, Little Mountain, Caloundra. After raising their family in Victoria, they relocated to the beautiful close-knit community of Peachester, where they lived for 28 years.

Life flourished until Tony’s health took an unexpected downturn. “I’d not given it much thought but after this incident I started to think about the future and I realised that one of us could be living alone one day – it was time for us to turn the page for the next chapter,” Tony said. Tony and Ann chose Caloundra Rise as their home four years ago because of the generous wider streets, the beautifully maintained gardens, community atmosphere and friendliness of the residents. Access to the Retirement Living Manager, long term administration, maintenance support staff, and the ability to receive in-home care from an approved provider provides additional reassurance. Residents also have the peace of mind of having onsite access to residential aged care. “Leaving behind the familiar and settling into a new community is challenging. It’s harder to adjust when your health changes at the same time,” Ann said. For anyone considering retirement living, Ann and Tony offer what they have learned. One of the key points they recommend is to make sure the atmosphere and amenities of your chosen village suit what you truly need, and be clear in your mind what your needs and wants are. They also suggest that having a clear understanding of the way finances are structured in the village you are considering is vital as well as ensuring you are fully comfortable with the structure. The more information you can gather as well as a first-hand impression of what’s on offer can provide a valuable basis to assist in making an informed and comfortable decision.

They also offer one final tip to those wanting to take ownership of their retirement future. “Most importantly, don’t wait until tomorrow!” Tony and Ann both agree. Today Tony and Ann lead a very busy retirement lifestyle. Tony assists with the production of The Clarion, the monthly magazine for the village and, as a jeweller by trade, enjoys spending time on his craft in his hobby workshop. Ann is a liaison officer at Caloundra Rise for the Association of Residents of Queensland Retirement Villages who advocate for best practice retirement living. “At Caloundra Rise there are wonderful facilities and daily activities and so much fun. We have never regretted our decision to move to Caloundra Rise retirement estate. “It’s been the right move for us,” Tony and Ann agree. If you’d like to know more about living in this wonderful retirement estate, call Retirement Living Manager Peter Snell on 5438 0655, and come and visit and experience what this lovely village offers.

Eat, Drink & Enjoy Hospitality traineeship for Beerwah High student

As the school year begins a number of Beerwah State High students have signed on to complete traineeships with local businesses, including Chloe Smithers who is undertaking a traineeship at Frankie J’s Pizza and Pasta in Glass House Mountains. Debbie Franks from Frankie J’s Pizza and Pasta said Chloe was already a part-time employee at the business and while Debbie hadn’t known a lot about how traineeships work, she just contacted the school to find out more, and she was really pleased with how the process had worked so far. Year 10 student Chloe is looking forward to being able to combine working with developing her skills, as well as completing a qualification which, for her traineeship, is a Certificate 3 in Hospitality. Beerwah State High School’s Industry Liaison Officer, Helen Skerman, said: “Our trainees work in hospitality, retail operations, business, information, digital media and technology, sport and recreation, community pharmacy, childcare, horticulture, engineering production and dental assisting. “Most students attend work release on their non-timetabled day, fulfilling the requirement of approximately 7.6 hours paid work each week,” Helen said. If you are interested in finding our more about whether your business could employ a school based trainee you can contact Helen Skerman at Beerwah High on 5436 5333.

It becomes an ongoing loss of income from tenancy to tenancy. The aim for tenanting a property is to ensure that the rent is within the market expectations to reduce lost income and high tenancy turnovers. If a Ross Rutledge vacancy period does occur, you may like to work by the rule that (provided 5499 9525 or the property is clean and presents 0447 787 020 well and is well-maintained) if a tenant is not secured by day ten of the leasing campaign, the asking rent should be reduced by five-ten percent, which has been a tried and tested system.

Did you know that hairy caterpillars can cause pregnant horses to abort their foals? The condition is called Equine Amnionitis and Foetal Loss (EAFL) and occurs when mares inadvertently eat whole caterpillar or shed caterpillar skins while grazing in the paddock. It’s not all hairy caterpillars, but one species in particular is much more problematic than others. This is the caterpillar of the Bag-shelter moth (called Ochrogaster lunifer), with its common name being the Processionary caterpillar (or itchy grub if you’re a kid).

We’re coming into what is described as the ‘high risk period’ for the caterpillars (March to June) when the caterpillars move away from their nest trees and march across country to find a suitable spot to nest underground ready to pupate and turn into moths. It’s during this time that pregnant mares are most at risk of coming across them. The University of Queensland (UQ) is researching how to prevent EAFL. UQ School of Biological Sciences researcher Professor Meron Zalucki said bag-shelter moth caterpillars were believed to be responsible for up to onethird of abortions in thoroughbreds, causing equine amnionitis and fetal loss (EAFL) by inflaming the placental membrane. “The caterpillars are covered with up to 2.5 million dangerous tiny hairs, and horses inadvertently ingest them or their nest remains,” he said. Professor Zalucki is part of a team behind an insect management strategy to reduce the issue in the thoroughbred industry. The researchers have developed guidelines for studs and farmers to deal with the threat and are completing a risk assessment of horses’ exposure to the caterpillars. The researchers have developed educational resources including a website (www.eafl.net.au), a brochure and a poster with timelines for action. Professor Zalucki said stud owners should remove moth egg masses and caterpillar nests from tree trunks and branches and dispose of them safely. “It’s important to be careful and to wear protective equipment when handling caterpillar material as the hairs can cause skin irritation and potentially get into eyes,” he said. These caterpillars – as well as a group of other similarly hairy ones – can cause serious skin reactions in people too, including rashes, welts, burning sensations, swelling and itching. Breathing in their fine hairs can cause serious respiratory reactions, sometimes requiring hospitalisation. For more information on the caterpillars and EAFL, check out www.eafl.net.au.

Noticeboard Memory jolting display Contributed by Debbie Roberts It was a trip down memory lane recently at Beerburrum State School when a group of past students came together to sort pieces of history from the school archives. Among these treasures were an old school cane, a bell and photos which created lively discussions and plenty of laughter. The school’s Centenary will take place on Sunday April 22 where old school memorabilia will be on display. If you have a piece of the school’s history or know someone who might, please get in contact with the school on 5439 5222, as we would love hear from you. A Facebook page has been set up at Beerburrum State School Centenary Celebrations where you can keep up to date on their plans for the big event.

From the churches Rituals and symbols are very important for most of us human beings and I am not just talking about those strange religious ceremonies which seem stuck in the past. Every year there appears to be increasing numbers attending Anzac Day services. In fact the mystery of death seems to demand from us some way beyond words that expresses our grief, loss and hope. Some more recent rituals can quickly become popular such as when Sir William Dean attended a service in Switzerland in 1999 for a number of Australians who were killed in a canyoning incident. He placed a small bunch of wattle in the river. Not one word was required in explanation. It spoke to us all. This week Christians around the world will participate in a ritual that is thousands of years old yet its message demands more explanation now than it ever did before. Dusty black ashes will be placed on our foreheads and while they

Those who wear the ashes are publicly stating "It's my fault", "I take responsibility for the wrong that has been done", "You can blame me". Ash Wednesday provides the message through ritual that society needs but refuses to accept. All the advances, improvements and changes that I expect in the community and are necessary and that I presume depend on everyone else lifting their game are in fact only possible if I lift my game too. I share in the guilt of what we do wrong and while blaming everyone else is the norm it is not the truth. Of course Ash Wednesday and the season of Lent that this day begins also offers the way and gives the time to move forward in a positive and lifegiving way. It is the way of Christ and it is within reach of us all. God bless. GLASSHOUSE COUNTRY

Fantastic support for Dolly’s Dream

The combined efforts of Apex Maleny and Maple Street Meats saw a great result from the fundraising efforts at the Hinterland Aussie Day Expo where $5,500 was raised. With this added to the original fundraising of $2,500 raised by Jeremi and Jody Scott and their team, a total donation of $8,000 has been made to Dolly’s Dream. Jeremi was keen to acknowledge the great support they received from Maleny Harvest, Wild Contracting and Glasshouse Country & Maleny News, and his suppliers Vadals Butcher Supplies, Mandez Food Systems and Gooralie Free-Range Pork. He also wanted to thank everyone who purchased the Blueberry and Maple Sausages, along with the enthusiastic bunch who ran the Apex’s Big Barbeque at the Expo for their excellent support. CONDITIONS: To ensure all community notices can be printed each month please keep your contributions to a maximum of 100 words.

It was Seb’s work in photography that originally took him into the custom picture framing business where he opened a framing shop in Brisbane. Seb reckons that it is lucky that he loves a challenge as picture framing can definitely create some interesting challenges. These days at Beerwah Picture Framing, he is able to offer his customers a complete range of framing services, from small art pictures and pieces to jerseys and large canvas works. As a professional photographer he is also able to address the challenges of photo restoration. He loves scanning a fifty or hundred year old photograph, repairing it and restoring it to its former glory before printing it out. If you have a framing or restoration job, give Seb a call on 0407 678 520 so he can take a look at the job, work out how the assignment should be handled and he can give you a quote to do the job. You are always welcome to call in to his framing studio for a look around.

Sport Sports Club Update The Glasshouse Mountains Sports Club’s constitution allows for election of President and Treasurer one year, and Secretary, VP and committee members the next. Basically this means members commit to two year terms, and there is never a complete change of committee in any one year. At this year’s recent AGM it was only the positions of President and Treasurer that were available. Warren Raddatz returned unopposed to the role of President and the role of Treasurer, which has been undertaken by Dimi Young for the past two years, was taken up by Steve Webb. The makeup of the committee is: President - Warren Raddatz, Secretary - Stephen Forster, Vice President - Semi Minchev, Treasurer - Steve Webb and Committee Member - Leisa Thistlewaite. A decision has now been made for the Suncity Darts Club to join the club’s four other affiliated clubs of touch football, cricket, football and netball.

Beerwah Golf Club

Contributed by Brenda Briese Ladies Golf results Seems like we got rain on request! There was plenty of it and very welcome. The greens staff have been battling to keep up with the mowing, but doing a splendid job. Due to the rain we had no Saturday ladies competition. Thursday, February 8 was an Aggregate 2 Ball Stableford. Winners, with a very good score, were Gail Gundry and Robyn Taylor on 70, runners up were Heather Coyle and Vikki Bartel on 66 on count back from second runners up, Fay Barry and Debs Rutherford. NTP: (2) Barb Drury/ Joan Swyny, (5) Cathy Stone/Andrea Campbell, (16) Ruth Parish / Pauline Laurie. (Second shot 18) Robyn Ryan / Lea Garner. BRD went to 56pts. Beerwah ladies welcome new members and visitors to our great club. Vikki Bartel, Heather Coyle and Fay Barry

Contributed by Leanne McAllister The Club’s juniors have two new teams for their post-Christmas 2018 season. Our four T20 Blast teams played at Maleny Friday night. Glasshouse U11s White (vs Bribie Island Sandstone Point) and Green Teams (vs Caboolture Maroon) both had wins at home games on Saturday February 10. Our U14s played away at Maroochydore and lost their first innings against Maroochydore Red, with play to continue this Saturday.

The Range Croquet Club

New committee: Stephen Forster, Steve Webb, Leisa Thistlethwaite, Warren Raddatz and Semi Minchev. (Inset) Dennis and Karen Hawkins from the Suncity Darts Club

Contributed by Ken Barker Saturday and Sunday saw little activity on the lawn because of the weather. Blackall Range Care Group visits once a month on the first Tuesday of the month. They usually play a variation of Golf Croquet from mid-morning to lunch. Thanks to the willing few who helped out this Tuesday, but it would be great if more members could lend a hand with the running of this event. Kath Smith made a welcome return to the lawn last Thursday, partnering with Ken Barker in a hardfought game of doubles against Helen Andrews and Frances Harper. Kath broke her ankle late last year

and, despite having to shed a ‘moon boot’ to go onto the lawn, acquitted herself very well. Kath and Helen left at 5pm with the scores at 13-10 in favour of Kath and Ken. Frances, who had played very well, making some good breaks in the first part of the game, and Ken, decided to play on for another half an hour. After this, the final score of a good game was 21-11. Club play days are Thursday and Sunday at 2 for 2.30pm. Saturday mornings at 8am there are lessons for beginners on the courts in the showgrounds. For details contact president Vince Carbery 5494 2193 or secretary Priscilla Vickers 5494 3555.

This year is our 50th anniversary, being one of four inaugural clubs with the Sunshine Coast Football.

Register online at www.playfootball.com.au We invite all junior players to register for the coming season, we are also looking for coaches for our 3rd and 4th Division Men’s teams, all present and past players are encouraged to support the club in what will be a very big year. We are proud to confirm that Shaun Decourcy will be our Junior Director of Coaching and Nathan Cobb, our small sided Director of Coaching. Shaun and Nathan have a wealth of Football experience and will make sure that our Coaches are mentored throughout the season, which, in turn, will mean that all of our juniors will be in safe hands, playing in suitable divisions.

This year we will have a Premier Women’s team as well as a Division 3 team. We are currently seeking Girls to register for the Under 13s and Under 15s Female Football is a major focus for the club, so Girls, you are most welcome to join us for some fun! Sponsored by

Maleny Bowls Club

Contributed by Miles Allen On Monday two teams travelled to Mapleton for the monthly pairs competition on their beautiful grass. Both teams travelled back empty-handed, but enjoyed the day. The Tuesday jackpot bowls competition was won by John Kapetanic, Margaret Ginns and Don Ginns. On Wednesday Twilight Bowls there were 42 players for Round 2. The winning teams were Ben Bryce, Handles, Bridge Club, Mavericks, Mobile Kingdom, Outlaws and Maleny Dairies. Rosalie, one of our new players in only her second game of bowls delighted the crowd by winning a ‘toucher’. This happens when the bowl touches the jack within a set time period. Friday Scroungers saw a large turnout with 27 players all competing for vouchers, chocolate bars and of course the honour of winning against other players. The winners were Relma Godfrey, Ray Elmore, Curley Peterson, Heather Snell, Ian Chatterton, John Long, Scott Alexander and Dennis Kyling. As a result, some handicaps went up and some went down. The class and skill of Curley Peterson shone through and he went home with eight Mars Bars, beating the previous record of six held by Margaret Ginns! The rinks are filling up on Wednesdays and Fridays but if you are keen to play, we can take more players. Turn up at 6pm on Wednesdays and 2.30pm on Fridays. We’ll tell you all about the game and you’ll be able to play in our friendly atmosphere. Thanks to our volunteer greenkeeper, Roy Gesch and his assistants David Burgess and Gary Darcy, the green is looking great and playing very smoothly.

Beerwah Golf Club

Men and medley results Contributed by Roger Bonhomme Two ball multiplier Stableford is a relatively new game where partners' scores are multiplied for each hole. Should a player suffer a wash, then that pair scores a zero. Needless to say multiplier is a game which severely tests many friendships! Last Wednesday Rusty Tillyard and his mate Barry Clarke (Caloundra) had very few problems to win the competition with 71 points, playing off a nine handicap. Wayne Deague and Peter Dawson (18), two visitors from Headland, finished second a point behind and one up on third placegetters John Marsden/Bob Williams (25). NTP: 2 – Jeff Faulkner, 5 – Jim Wells, 16 – Karen Kemp, 18 – Trevor Kamp. Last Saturday, 166 members and visitors played a Stableford game, enjoying fine weather and excellent playing conditions. Phil Siegle (6) won A grade with 40 points beating Nigel Petrie (10) on a countback. Nigel recently returned to Beerwah after a stint up at Maroochy River. Welcome back Nige. Tony Newell (16), a visitor from Howlong, won B grade with 39 on a countback from Rod Miller (14). A countback wasn't needed in C grade however! Darren Patterson (30) from SGA GC ran away from the field with an amazing 48 points. Greg Houston (22) was a distant second with 40. NTP: 2 – Barry Gardner, 5 – Alan Perham, 16 – Corey Wallyn, 18 Bryan Dorge. This week the course will undergo its first major renovation for 2018. Fortunately, modern equipment and new techniques make renovations less intrusive these days and the greens recover more quickly.

AFL Come and Try Day

The Glasshouse Hinterland AFL club is holding a Come and Try Day for junior boys and girls aged up to 16 who are interested to learn more about the great game of AFL. The session will be held on Thursday February 22 at the Landsborough Sports Complex on Tunnel Ridge Road and will run from 4-5pm. This is an opportunity to come and meet the coaches who will provide the kids with a skills session so that they can learn the act of kicking, marking, bouncing and handballing just like they do in the AFL and AFLW. There will be AFL inflatables and hopefully some special guests on the day to meet with the kids.

Just for Laughs A Travel Agent looked up from his desk to see an old lady and an old gentleman peering in the shop window at the posters showing the glamorous destinations around the world. The agent had had a good week and the dejected couple looking in the window gave him a rare feeling of generosity. He called the pair into his shop. "I know that on your pension you could never hope to have a great holiday," he said, "So I am sending you off to a fabulous resort at my expense and I won't take 'no' for an answer." Without further ado, he asked his secretary to

ARIES March 21 - April 20 The New Moon this week is an Eclipse. This brings all manner of relationships into focus. Some may be in the mood to make a personal commitment or be a business partner, even if that means taking a leap of faith! Expansion is the objective for the next six months. Aquarius energies move into Pisces after the 19th bringing you relaxation. TAURUS April 21 - May 22 If you are looking for love and security see if you can get into some social groups this week as there is a New Moon bringing big changes and new options to your private and professional life. A new opportunity could bring both excitement and stability. Mercury enters Pisces as well as the Sun sign adding psychic vibes to your senses. GEMINI May 23 - June 21 What a time this is for you with the New Moon in eclipse formation putting a focus on friends and the chance to make new ones. In fact, you can have it all over the next six months with new places to go, new ideas to promote and new cultures to look at. News from afar can lift your spirits and this may be the best time to make travel plans. CANCER June 22 - July 22 With this New Moon eclipse around the 16th it affects your shared resources. This means you can start anew with credit, a new budget, or a new account with partner’s funds. Sudden options open up for you and they are exciting with a renewed sense of freedom and independence. Pisces energy flows and you become strong with intuition.

arrange two flight tickets and book a room in a five star hotel. As you would expect, they gladly accepted, and were away. About a month later the little old lady came back in to his shop. "And how did you like your holiday?" he asked eagerly. "The flight was exciting, the room was lovely," she said, "and I've come to thank you, but one thing puzzled me… Who was that old bugger I had to share the room with?” Contributed by Hugh Jones, Beerwah

LEO July 23 - August 22 The spotlight turns powerfully now on relationships with the New Moon in a Solar Eclipse. This eclipse is between the signs of Aquarius and Leo. In the next six months there is a focus on better relationships even a marriage if you wish! Legal matters go well and perhaps you entertain new alliances. Focus on making improvements. VIRGO August 23 - September 22 A good idea comes to you and you grab it with both hands as you know that this will help your career. You also need to focus on any health environment and you may be called upon to give service to somebody dependent upon you, even if it is a pet! The Eclipse period for the next six months sees you with improved eating and working habits. LIBRA September 23 - October 22 The New Moon arrives not only in an Eclipse formation, but also conjoins the Asteroid Juno. This Asteroid is very strong in making relationships really work well, or under this eclipse could cease old relationships entirely due to their lack of love. The accent of Aquarius energies will move to Pisces and will focus on making improvements to your health. SCORPIO October 23 - November 22 The New Moon eclipse this week gives you a chance for a fresh start with new intensions especially with what has been going on recently on the home front. Look now for bright ideas to revitalise and support relationships. The Moon moves into the honey-sweet sign of Pisces flowing affectionately your way! Consider seeing an interesting movie.

SAGITTARIUS November 23 - December 22 As this New Moon flavour this week is between Aquarius and Leo, that fire and energy vitality reaches into your Sagittarius pocket to get you to make meaningful connections with people. It may be time to join a group, even an internet community, and reach out to other likeminded souls. Explore ways and means of improving your home and family affairs. CAPRICORN December 23 - January 19 This Eclipse week with the New Moon in Aquarius falls in your money zone. Remember Eclipses give you a chance to plant seeds that will last for at least six months. What would you like to see grow materially over the next few weeks? Any commitment now could last a long time. Piscean energies arrive offering you emotional psychic vibrations. AQUARIUS January 20 - February 19 Your financial outlook is excellent. Pay attention this week to matters of basic security. Follow your intuition and make connections that could guide you toward acquiring that special goal you have been after for the last six months. Good partnerships are at the forefront, under a special New Moon Eclipse, and strong benefits last over six months. PISCES February 20 - March 20 The Eclipse taking place this week sees that New Moon falling in your sector of solitude and escape. That will work well for you as it makes time for your inner needs to manifest deep seated desires. The Moon brings out your sweet charms and emotional understanding. Friends will want to share many secrets with you. You give good counselling this month!

He gained two years experience with the UK’s National Health Service before spending four years in private practice in Ireland.
