Hi Everyone Volunteering is an important part of the success of our local community and this week’s cover stories feature a couple of our most high profile volunteers Paula and Bridgette Powers. Most readers will recognise the ‘Twinnies’ who work tirelessly to rescue injured seabirds and other native animals. The lady in the centre of the photo who you may not recognise is Mishele Blizzard, who is the secretary of Twinnies Pelican and Seabird Rescue Inc, as well as being the twin’s sister. The girls are looking for volunteers to help them with their work new sanctuary on Steve Irwin Way at Landsborough , if you think that might be of interest to you – you should check out the story on page 3.

What's Happening

The Twinnies new nest

‘The Twinnies’, Bridgette and Paula Powers, have moved to a new location at Landsborough, but don’t worry they will still be continuing their amazing work rescuing and rehabilitating seabirds, birds and other native animals. The move to the three acre property three weeks ago involved a lot of work, but with the help of family and volunteers, 110 birds are now settling into their new home. “This is one of the biggest moves we’ve ever done,” said Paula and Bridgette. “We moved the birds 10 at a time. They coped really well, no stressing. They settled in quite well.” The property contains an office, Intensive Care Unit, Pre Release Enclosures and a fully fenced

dam for pelicans in permanent care. To ensure the minimum amount of disruption to the animals, the new property was set up with the ICU fully equipped and ready before the transfer of the sick and injured. The new address for Twinnies Pelican and Seabird Rescue Inc. is 2147 Steve Irwin Way at Landsborough and all drop-offs can now be made there. Although they are ready to receive and rescue animals they admit there is still a lot of work to be done. “We still need a lot of help, we’re looking for volunteers and we still need help to build, to expand the aviaries and put down road base, the property is very wet,” they said. Currently the John Pearson Look Now Employment and Training conservation students have been visiting the property every week to do revegetation. Mishele Blizzard, secretary of Twinnies Pelican and Seabird Rescue Inc., and sister of the Twinnies said the public is welcome to attend a community tree planting on Monday, March 21, at 10.00am which coincides with World Forestry Day and Harmony Day. “There will be a barbecue and drinks,” Mishele said. Even though they have moved, The Twinnies vision is still the same. “For our seabirds and all birds to have the best rehabilitation centre,” they said.

State of play with Beerwah RSL By Lea Parkes GCNews received a media statement from the Beerwah Peachester Sub Branch informing the local community of the following. The Return Services League of Australia (Queensland Branch) Beerwah / Peachester SubBranch Inc (‘Sub -Branch) and the Beerwah RSL and Citizens Memorial Club Inc (‘Citizens Club’) have been in ongoing discussions for some time regarding the management and operation of the Beerwah RSL. In February 2011, the Sub Branch and the Citizens Club reached a mutual agreement that the Sub Branch would take over operation of the Beerwah RSL from mid April 230911. The Sub Branch has spent a considerable amount of time and money considering how to best serve the commu8nity and the RSL movement. The Sub Branch will now be about to ensure that the Beerwah RSL can provide enhanced services and facilities to its members and the local community. In particular there will be an emphasis on the provision of a state of the art Sports and TAB operation. Whilst the Beerwah RSL Club may be closed for a brief period to change over operational systems, the Beerwah RSL Club will re-open for business in mid- April 2011. ANZAC Day April 25th commemoration services and main parade honouring the Veterans and Returned Service Persons will be as normal. The Sub Branch wants to reassure the community and existing members of the Beerwah RSK that the current services will not be diminished and that all members of the community are welcome at the Beerwah RSL, particularly existing members of the Citizens Club.

Emotions ran high in the function room at the Beerwah RSL last Thursday night when a member’s information meeting was held to discuss the club’s upcoming eviction on April 9. The RSL and Citizens Memorial Club with its 3,500 members has been established at the current location in Beerwah Parade for the past 40 years. The building however is owned by the Beerwah Peachester RSL Sub-branch and they recently announced their intentions to evict the club with 30 days notice. About 130 passionate locals, some of those involved in building the original club in the 70s, attended the meeting and made their feelings known. These members definitely want to stay put and they say the club’s Board should continue to fight to make the RSL sub-branch see just how ridiculous they feel their actions have been. The members in attendance clearly love the club and what it provides them. They think the location is excellent and they like the staff who works there. They also believe that the ‘Citizen’ members have contributed much to the current success of the club, and that they should have just as much influence over the decision for the club’s future as the RSL sub-branch. Generally the biggest issues of the night were: Why is the eviction happening? What has the club done to deserve this? And what has happened (or not happened) over the last 12 months between the RSL sub-branch committee and the club’s board to let it get to this critical point?

The evening’s proceedings were led by the club’s mediator Frank Balzary, and from early on it was pretty clear that he was not going to provide any answers to these questions. What he was able to say over and over was that Dennis Steer and Frank Balzary … “you would have to ask that RSL sub-branch that question and we have not been formally advised of why this decision has been made. We have tried every approach to get the RSL sub-branch to talk to us but they will not sit down and discuss these issues any further.” There was plenty of disbelief and cynicism from the attendees that the club board could not possibly have any idea of what the triggers were to the RSL sub-branch’s actions. Paul Gilmour, a member of both the RSL sub-branch and the citizens club, seemed to echo the sentiments of those in attendance when he said “I have had enough of being kept in the dark.” And consistently those attending who, like Paul, are members of both sides seemed just as frustrated and disappointed that the situation had degenerated to what you would expect in a school ground. There was a suggestion that the club mount a legal challenge, but they were advised that the RSL sub-branch have acted lawfully and within the lease arrangements that exists, where either party is able to terminate the arrangements with one month’s notice. On February 9, the RSL sub-branch used this clause in the lease to give the club one month, or until March 9, to vacate the premises. However, the RSL sub-branch subsequently gave the club a one month extension, meaning that the club now has less than three and a half weeks to change the minds of the RSL sub-branch committee or the club will be forced to move out. Mr Balzary told the meeting that if the eviction goes ahead the club will remove every piece of furniture and infrastructure from the building. They will then be put into secure storage until a decision is made about the club’s future. The club owns the Glass House Mountains Bowls Club on Coonowrin Road, Glass House Mountains (next door to the community hall). Mr Balzary said that is the club’s intention this would become the club’s primary premises. “Before any decision was made to invest club funds into the future development of the Bowls Club, there would need to be feasibility studies undertaken and this type of decision would go back to club members before they went ahead,” explained Mr Balzary. Mr Balzary continued to reinforce throughout the evening that the club will work until the eleventh hour to try and resolve the situation with the RSL sub-branch. For community comments see the letters on page 30.

“I’m very humbled,” said John. “It was very special, and to have my family there. I never thought I’d get the award.” A golf professional’s role is varied and can include running the pro golf shop, teaching golf, organising golf social bookings, members’ competitions and much more. “Anything to do with golf falls in my lap,” he said. John said golfing had been in his blood from a very early age when he and his two brothers, who are golf pros as well, started collecting golf balls at the local golf club on the Northern Beaches in Sydney. They would sell the balls to the golf pro to buy chocolates. Later, as a player, he started having some success in tournaments. He became a PGA Golf Pro in 1978 and said it was his time with the Royal Sydney Golf Club that gave him some important lessons, such as treating everyone with respect. “It stands you in good stead,” he said. Even after spending a short time in his company it’s easy to see his rapport with the Beerwah Golf Club members. “I like to think I go that little extra mile,” John said. So what’s does he think is the best part of the job? “I’m very lucky; it’s not a tough job. It’s a great atmosphere to work in and it’s not high pressure. You met great people along the way. It’s been a good journey,” he said. “I’d like to thank the Beerwah Golf Club, to think that after being here for 25 years they still think I’m worthy to nominate me for that award.”

Sibling students debate hot topics Olivia and Huxley Baberowski, siblings from Beerwah, who are studying Arts and Psychology at the University of the Sunshine Coast, have launched a new group on campus to stimulate student discussion and debate hot topics. Olivia Baberowski, 16, and her brother Huxley, 20, held the first meeting of the Youth Dialectic at the University Club on March 8 and say the group will provide a chance for students to continue passionate discussions that might begin in tutorials, and to advance new ideas. Aiming to stimulate regular discussion and debate among students at the University of the Sunshine Coast can only be good. “USC is a very personalised University and academics are generous with their time but I want the tutorials to go for longer,” Huxley explains. This is not surprising given Huxley is a former state debating champion now researching social evolution for his Arts Honours degree. “This group is a chance to be reflective and keep going with discussions. We’ll bring in experts with different opinions so students can advance their views.” Huxley said it was great to make the most of opportunities at USC – for him it was initially studying a Headstart course in Creative Writing and more recently studying in the United States as part of the University’s GO Program. Olivia said members of the Youth Dialectic could decide future topics and practise their public

Beerwah State High School Huxley and Olivia Baberowski, left and right, chatting with Arts student Courtney Parrinder as they promoted their Youth Dialectic group at USC’s recent Orientation Week speaking skills, while making new friends. Olivia who enrolled in a Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology) just as she turned 16 in the middle of last year, says she is thriving on university life. “I’m interested in what makes people happy and what motivates them to learn,” she said. Olivia decided to study Psychology at USC after getting high distinctions in two USC Headstart courses she completed on campus as a 14-yearold high school student. “Most people don’t realise my age and I don’t think it matters,” she said. The keen debaters say the Youth Dialectic is more about content than style, with the emphasis on fresh information. Last Tuesday’s first topic was on education system improvements with guest speakers’ democratic education expert Derek Sheppard of Booroobin, and USC World History Lecturer, Dr Marcus Bussey.

Skippy Park springs to life A facility where Sunshine Coast families can play, rest, exercise and enjoy nature is just a hop, skip and a jump away. Work has started on the Skippy Park nature-based playground at Landsborough. Stage one of the project will include construction of picnic Dale Stumer, Project Officer with Council's shelters, barbecues, natural Infrastructure Services Department and Councillor and traditional playground equipment, drinking fountains, Anna Grosskreutz with plans for Skippy Park drainage and landscaping. Division 1 Councillor Anna Grosskreutz said the Federal Government’s Regional Local Community Infrastructure Program (RLCIP) had contributed $172,000 towards the $240,000 stage one works. “Skippy Park is set to become a wonderful multi-purpose facility that will offer a range of recreation opportunities for everyone on the Sunshine Coast and beyond,” she said. “I thank the Federal Government very much for recognising the value this facility can deliver to the local community and generously supporting its construction.” Cr Grosskreutz said the nature-based playground would provide a unique experience. “Sandstone climbing rocks and fallen tree climbing structures will be features of the new playground,” she said. The Skippy Park precinct currently comprises sporting fields, athletics and cycling tracks and kangaroo grazing areas. Cr Grosskreutz said stage one of the natural and traditional playground construction was due for completion in May. “Council is planning the delivery of future project stages at Skippy Park and I look forward to announcing funding for these works in future budgets,” she said.

Coast Commuters to boycott rail services

Sunshine Coast rail commuters have been left with no choice but to demonstrate their dissatisfaction with Translink and the Transport Minister by boycotting rail services on Thursday, March 17. Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell MP, has lent his full support to the commuters’ campaign and has expressed his disappointment that they have had to resort to this. "When Translink representatives had a community information session last December they did little to address the concerns that commuters raised with the possible timetable changes. "This has fostered a lot of anger within the commuter community and has left many dissatisfied travellers. "Then to top it all off, the commuters are hit with price hikes that are really unjustifiable. It’s no wonder they have been driven to this sort of action," Mr Powell said.

Mr Powell has been working very closely with commuters from all over the Sunshine Coast since the proposed timetable changes were drafted back in November 2010. "I have written to the Minister several times, at one point we even asked the Minister to attend a forum to hear directly from commuters, I might add she turned this invitation down. I have also sponsored an E-Petition calling on the Government to preserve the current timetable and have just this week tabled 976 signed petitions. "Perhaps the Government will finally take stock when they see the increase in traffic on the Bruce Highway on Thursday and evaluate the loss of public transport income. "I congratulate this group of people for having the courage to stand up for something they truly believe in. Nothing beats people power," Mr Powell concluded.

An artist with heart When local Landsborough Artist, De GreerYindimincarlie, heard a new glossy Indigenous magazine called Heart was looking for an indigenous graphic designer, she no idea that after speaking with its creator, that she would end up being featured in the magazine herself. De has a five page spread in the quality magazine, whose aim is to celebrate the achievements of indigenous women throughout Australia, as well as covering a wide range of topics. De said it feels awesome to be included in the same issue as people such as her friend, Dr Anita Heiss. “She has done amazing things, and for me to be in the same magazine that she’s in gives me an amazing feeling; to know that what I do and what I’ve done is worthy of being in a publication with her,” De said. “I’m excited to be part of the magazine because it’s about my people. “And it’s about something that is close to my heart, and it’s also about something that has not been done before in Australia.

Heart Magazine is a not-for-profit incorporated association and it is hoped non indigenous people will support and buy the magazine as well. “It’s not just for black people; it’s for everybody who wants to know what’s happening in Australia. I think some people still see them as the inferior race - it’s great to know that this magazine will hopefully improve and lift the profile that indigenous people have in Australia,” said De. Heart Magazine is available in print or on-line at De is also a local distributor and you can contact her through or visit the Heart blog on

“I hope this book can increase people’s awareness that we’re people too. Yes, we are educated, and yes we own businesses and yes, we have families and we’re just like everybody else. “Heart can give indigenous people, women especially, the strength, the courage, the knowing that regardless of what situation you are in, you can always achieve whatever it is you want to achieve,” she said.

Urban ATV – totally awesome fun! The Bike Week that was and is Urban ATV offers the fun of a real quad bike without the noise or the smoke nuisance usually generated by petrol engines. Our quad bike range travels up to 30km per hour driven by a powerful yet quiet 36-volt brushless electric motor. With an all-steel frame, disc brakes, real shock absorbers and rubber inflatable tyres, these quads are perfect for the back yard or even for livestock on the farm. Having three young boys of our own, we have tried and tested all the different petrol and 12-volt models available, only to find them all either cheap and nasty, hard to maintain, or too smoky and noisy for the urban environment. The quads come in two different engine sizes – 500W or 800W, and select models have speed limiters which let mum or dad specify what speed the rider can travel. They are perfect for beginners or new riders alike. All quads are key operated and have a safety cut off switch located on the foot plate, which will stop the quad when it is no longer depressed. Being a local company, local customers can save on shipping costs and have the benefit of first class service within handy reach. The business has been operating for 12 months and we are receiving great customer feedback. Our current shipment includes quads with speed limiters, and they are turning out quite popular with parents of younger children. Urban ATV is a family business and our motto is ‘Customers over Profit’. This may sound a little cheesy, but we have found dealing with some internetbased companies can be somewhat of a letdown. But having a strong customer service background, we have applied those skills and qualities in order to establish a great customer service and relationship based business, dealing in quality and reliable products that you can trust.

You don’t have to wear lycra to love Bike Week, starting last weekend Sunshine Coast Council has been coordinating 21 free sessions across the Coast with a variety the whole family will enjoy. During Bike Week, March 12 - 20 events and workshops have been running that show a different side to cycling, everything from women’s sessions and kids progression from training wheels, to BMX clinics and night time trail rides. Integrated Transport Portfolio Councillor Vivien Griffin said council is committed to encouraging active transport and part of that is showing how much fun things like cycling can be. “Bike Week is a great way to try new things and shows you don’t need to be super fit to have fun on a bike,” Cr Griffin said. “It’s certainly a great way to stay healthy and active with friends and family and it’s practical too. “Last year I attended one of the more practical sessions; basic bike maintenance. I now know how to fix my own bike,” she said. Free activities, catering for every age group, activity level and interest, include cycle skills and games, group rides, come and try – introduction to bike orienteering, women’s workshop and ride, night train mountain bike rides, sunset beach ride, BMX come and try racing clinic, mountain bike rides, progression from training wheels and getting started in cycling. For a full list of events, go to referring to bookings with the relevant organiser.

More work completed at hall Glass House Mountains Community Hall has had another project done. A new stage and new floor to replace the previous ones has been completed, and painting of the stage and some new areas completed also. The hall is now available for renting for weddings, parties, socials, meetings etc. The hall committee have had people inquiring regards dance classes for children, Zumba and Yoga classes for this area.

Big changes at Cedar House The New Year has seen some changes at Cedar House Homewares. Cecily and Colin have been busy expanding the shop, and what a difference the extra display space has made. They're now wondering where everything fitted before the wall came down? "We have received many positive responses to the changes our customers really like the more open feel of the shop and of course they love the expanded range we can now carry" Cecily said. This year continues to show strong interest in food preparation gadgets.

"The big buzz for me is to see the children so interested in cooking and they amaze me at the dishes they confidently tackle" Colin said. Boys and girls equally interested in creating dishes they have seen in magazines and of course the cooking shows on TV, not to mention the internet, how did we manage without Google? Back in stock is the old favourite, the cast iron Mincer; it now comes with three different sized blades and a useful sausage attachment, a quality product from Kitchen Craft. The good news is the price has come down to $60.00. A new shipment of cotton tea towels has arrived, good value at $2.00 each.

Colin and Cecily would like to extend an injvitation to everyone to come in for a browse and check out the the NEOFLAM, Ecolan pots and pans, all non toxic materials, and simply great to use quick heating and easy cleaning. They are sure you too will enjoy the extra space to wander around.

Real Life Education

A 16-year-old Mooloolah local from Beerwah State High School, Carla Atkinson, recently completed the Primary Industries Centre for Science Education (PICSE) Industry Placement Scholarship Program. She was awarded $300.00 for completing the program, but says the real value was fresh ambition for her future career. “Now, when I’m asked what I want to do with my life I can confidently say, go to University and complete a Bachelor of Science because I feel that no matter what path that takes me on, I’ll be content,” Miss Atkinson said. A true example of real-life learning, the PICSE program involves a five-day residential camp looking at the diversity of scientific careers on the coast and a five-day industry placement of the student’s choosing. Students then report on their experiences in a formal presentation to an audience at the University of the Sunshine Coast. “I was lucky enough to be chosen to work with Rob Abbas, an agronomist who at the time was working with Dr Mike Smith, a leading horticulturalist from the DEEDI, Maroochy Research Station,” she said. “During the industry placement, Rob, Dr Mike Smith and I rated ginger pot and field trials, visited ginger farms, discussed the Pythium dilemma with a few of the farmers it is affecting and collected data for symphilid trials. “I was able to experience applied science for the first time. Before then, I had always followed the

Carla Atkinson receiving her award at the University of the Sunshine Coast stereotype, thinking that to be a scientist you had to be excessively smart, wear a lab coat and sit in a laboratory all day,” she said. Miss Atkinson became involved in the program after a PICSE ambassador visited Beerwah State High School. She then joined keen science students from all over the Coast to participate in the camp and the placement. “Now that I have completed the camp and industry placement I realise that the decision was probably one of the best I’ve ever made. The camp was incredible and in that week my entire outlook on my future changed, for the better, not to mention I met a pretty amazing group of young adults,” she said.

Rescue in death spot BEERWAH

Shop 8 Beerwah Plaza Simpson Street

Dr. Ray Henderson Dr. Braxton Turnage

By Jane Moore, House Coordinator

A few weeks ago one of our students from Unity College, Jack Goyder in Year 8, was involved in the rescue of several swimmers at Happy Valley. Together with his father Mark, and a local surf instructor, Jack helped to rescue a total of nine people from the dangerous waters off Bulcock Beach as the tide was going out. One of the swimmers was an Asian tourist who could not speak English and by the time she was rescued had already taken in a substantial amount of water. If Jack and the others had not been around and acted so quickly, this tourist might have drowned. We acknowledged Jack‘s bravery during our assembly last week and presented him with a $20.00 voucher and a certificate recognising his courageous efforts and for being an inspiring member of our community. Well done Jack, you are a shining example to us all.

Gift of giving at Eudlo

Contributed by Niki Pratt, community liaison officer

At Eudlo State School, the children have been having a lesson in one of the most important fundamental values - the gift of giving. Last year, Eudlo School received new desks and chairs from Education Queensland under the ‘Building the Education Revolution’ program. In turn, Eudlo State School donated their surplus furniture to ‘Friends of the Pacific’ who are made up of wonderful people from around the Eudlo and Palmwoods areas. They self funded the journey to take the furniture to schools that they had built in Fiji and New Guinea.

Papua New Guinean students with their previous make-shift desks, and then their new donated desks

Respect • Excellence • Success

Jack Goyder

The students were constantly kept up to date with how the schools and their students were enjoying their new gifts, and how it has impacted and improved their education. Brilliant photos were received showing the students of a New Guinea school sitting at the children’s old donated desks, which was quite an improvement on the old logs and planks that were previously used as classroom furniture. Seeing the devastion that the floods have caused other areas of South East Queensland we felt compelled to help those that had been affected far worse than ourselves so we decided to adopt a small school in a small rural area called Arcadia Valley State School. Arcadia Valley has seven students and is located near Injune in Central Queensland. Their school and all that was inside, was covered in water and mud. To aid in their recovery process, Eudlo State School held an Australia Day breakfast and raised $311.00 which was sent to the students of Arcadia Valley with 79 written messages of best wishes. Arcadia Valley staff described the donation gift as a ‘new beginning’. We wish them all the best with their long journey ahead of them.

Glasshouse Country Christian College earlier this term gave an Apple Macbook computer to every Year 10, 11 and 12 student enrolled at the College. College Principal, Mike Curtis is enthusiastic about the possibilities that are created by the new Macbook program. “I want the students to be well prepared for life, university and the workforce,” he said. “This program has opened up learning opportunities for students that just did not exist previously. Teachers and students can now use technology when it makes sense to, instead of trying to plan around the availability of computer labs. The fact is, this where education is heading and we want to prepare our students sooner rather than later,” he added.

All senior students at the College have a laptop computer to use. Some choose to lease a computer through the program and others use their own Macbook or laptop. Students who opt out of the program are still provided with a loan Macbook for use in each of their classes. Students who opt into the program are allowed to take the computers home each evening and during the holidays. According to Roland Munyard, Head of IT, the decision to go with Apple was based on reliability, price and Apple’s reputation amongst other schools that run similar programs. “A number of teachers have commented on the quality of service they received from Apple,” he said. “However, the College has an open policy toward technology and students can still bring in their own Windows laptops, or the new Apple iPads and Kindle Readers,” Mr Munyard added. GCCC teachers received professional development to learn how to incorporate this technology into lessons. The College has more than 460 computers and almost 700 students from Prep to Year 12.

Glasshouse Country View Club - Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital Trip Contributed by Pauline Clarke, Publicity Officer

It’s typical isn’t it? Something fabulous in your own back yard, you knew it was there, but you never got around to visiting it. Well, the View Club had one of its most interesting trips; a complete tour of the Wildlife Hospital and its surrounds. We watched a koala operation, which was also being filmed for a future documentary, saw the View Club Members on Wildlife Hospital Trip astounding array of equipment used to treat and nurture the injured animals and were given a run down on the hospitals' history by Jacky our very knowledgeable tour guide. It was one of those extremely hot days that have hit us recently but inside the hospital, with no air conditioning running, it was very comfortable. The building is a straw bale and rammed earth construction and is superb for our local climate. It’s hard not to put a plug in for the hospital; did you know they operate 24/7, 365 days a year and receive nearly 100 wildlife emergency calls a day? At present they are looking for volunteers to assist with all sorts of functions; gardening, cleaning, helping to look after the animals, etc. Just a couple of hours a week would make all the difference; just call 1800 334 350. If you belong to a group or club we can recommend the hospital as a trip out. You will be made very welcome and all proceeds go to helping our beautiful wildlife. The next View Club meeting will be held on March 16 at the Glasshouse Mountains Sports Club at 11.00am for an 11.30am start. This meeting will include lunch and, especially for St Patricks Day, a theme of ‘Wear a Little Green’. Anyone who would like to join the View Club would be most welcome. Please contact Joy on 5439 9094 or Lynn on 5496 9074 who will be pleased to supply any further information about the club. The View Clubs raise funds for, and support, the Smith Family Charity. The Smith Family helps unlock opportunities for disadvantaged Australian children.

Beerwah Writers Group

Contributed by John Wright

At our third meeting of 2011, once again Martin introduced new members and we welcomed them. Kerry gave us information on the current situation with e-books and news on this year’s offerings of grants for the arts. John reported a telephone invitation for members to join with two other literary groups in a joint meeting with an author as guest speaker. He also presented another exercise in wordsmithing. Wil gained everyone’s attention with his story about an electronic conversation, titled ‘Is Booserville True? Anneke read some more philosophical thoughts that gave us all some ‘food for thought’ – of the serious kind. Bob brought us up to date with the adventures of Jack and Sue, in his forthcoming novel; this time revealing some skeletons in the cupboard. Ever-eloquent Barbara read her novelette introduction, ‘From A to A’, a tale of two countries. Member Sue entertained us with her account of a 50th year reunion of university students. We continue to provide opportunities for writers to present their work and receive feedback. Meetings take place at Beerwah Library on the second and fourth Friday of each month. Whether you are a writer, or just interested in writing, you will find a friendly welcome in this group whose members range from beginners to accomplished, published authors. Refreshments are provided for a small donation. Guests and visitors welcomed. Membership fee is $5.00 per year. For further information telephone John – 5493 0624.

Introducing our School Captains 2011series

It’s that time of year when we introduce you to our School Captains for 2011 and share their thoughts about what being a School Captain means to them. (to be continued next week) Glass House Mountains State School

Beerburrum State School

Shaylee Dempsey: “Being School Captain feels really good because we get to meet new people and experience new places. We get really big opportunities, lifetime opportunities that other people might not get. A Captain needs to wear school uniform, be responsible; and have fun with other children. I am responsible and I try my hardest. I’m looking forward to graduation, fun day, raising money with activities - lots of stuff.”

Chloe Thompson said: “It’s very rewarding that I’m able to get this opportunity. Qualities for a School Captain includes responsibility, they need….. not always to get good marks but to show people it’s not hard to just go out there and do some things, you’ve got to try. As a role model you need to show people what’s right from wrong. We get to be part of events like Graduation and ANZAC Day.

Tehya Prosser: “I feel really proud that I’ve been given that position. Captains need to be respectful of others, set a good example to the other children, and be responsible and reliable. I work well in the class room and I encourage all my class to do things they think are way too hard. I’m looking forward to raising money for things that we need around the school and representing my school at special events.”

Elimbah State School

Anastasia Baggley: “A Captain needs

to be trustworthy, loyal, a good role model and be nice. They have to be someone other kids can depend on to help them if they are having problems or just need a friend. I’m someone that other kids can come to, and I don’t mind giving up my lunchtimes or my other time to help other people. I look forward helping the school and the other kids.” 24



MARCH 16 2011

Captain; you don’t feel small like you are in Grade 2. I enjoy talking in front of a lot of people, that’s another great bonus of it. A Captain should have respect for fellow peers and teachers. When I’ve enlisted someone to do something I help them with it. I’m looking forward to the ANZAC ceremony and just being the School Captain."

Maddi Osborne: “It feels really good to be able to talk in front of everyone, to be able to show yourself, what a good leader you are and how responsible you are. A Captain needs to get along with everyone and you have to do as you’re told. I take pride in my school. I’m most looking forward to raising money for our school so we can buy more equipment for sports."

Glenview State School

Beerwah State School

Kane Dron: “A Captain needs to be an active learner, be a good example to other kids and needs to be responsible. I’m a good role model because I always follow the rules and include people when I’m playing games. I’m encouraging to other kids on sports day and tell them not to give up. I’m looking forward to leading our school in special events because it will be fun.”

Will Minns: “It feels great to be

Bailey Pelgrave: “It feels really great to be School Captain, you get to do stuff that some kids don’t, you get to set up assembly, you get to talk in front of a crowd every Monday. A Captain needs to show good responsibility, great leadership, be sensible and always encourage people. I’m looking forward to this Friday, going to the Brisbane Convention Centre to do a Young Leaders Conference.”

Lara Waldron: “It’s the best

experience I’ve had yet. It’s so much fun meeting new people and just talking in front of a huge crowd. A Captain needs to be hard working, to be able to speak confidently in front of a huge audience, to be responsible, reliable and honest. I like public speaking, I’m honest and people can rely on me. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and the experience of being School Captain.”

Landsborough State School

Sam Fullerton: “I think it’s great

being School Captain, I get to lead the school by example and I think I’ll do a good job. School Captains need to be a good role model, lead by example and get the job done all the time. As Captain I help out, and I help other kids as much as I can. I will like knowing what’s going on around the school.”

Heidi Boardman said: “It feels great to be School Captain. Captains need to set an example to each other and to everyone. They must be honest, be reliable and be trustworthy. I’m friendly and I follow instructions and I know how to co-operate. I follow the Four B’s: be safe, be respectful, be responsible and be an active learner. I’m looking forward to pretty much everything about being a Captain.”

Luke Warren said: “I’m really thrilled that I got it, I tried really hard and I reckon I’ve changed a lot. I’m just really happy because it’s a really big role. A lot of children know me and they do look up to me and if I set a good example it will probably affect them, that’s what I think I’m good at. I’m looking forward to conducting parade, that’s fun.”

Asian Honeybee

On February 16 this year I spoke in Parliament on the Condolence Motions for the victims of the recent natural disasters in Queensland.

The No.1 Westpac home loan just got better. The No.1

I have delivered a speech in the Australian parliament, urging the Government to fund an eradication program for the Asian Honeybee, which has been found in North Queensland. It has the capacity if not stopped to do widespread damage to the bee and honey industry and agriculture and horticulture generally. Bees are not only about honey; in fact, that is a relatively small part of what they do. They are a key part of the ecological network and play a vital role in the reproduction of plants everywhere. Without our bees, our agriculture and horticultural industries would be much worse off and probably risk complete collapse, and much of the pollination of our native plants would not occur. I met with beekeepers in Canberra recently, on March 2, including Maleny-based bee researcher Dr Max Whitten, to assist in drawing attention to the issue and help campaign to the Government for funds for an eradication program.

I made it clear that natural disasters have a psychological impact on the people who go through them and such impacts can vary from person to person, with short, medium or long-term effects. Stress, depression, anxiety and even post-traumatic stress disorder are possible outcomes and it is important that we assist those who are suffering to understand that help is available. There will be those who are close to the sufferers—indeed, their family and friends—who will be the first to notice traits or changes in behaviour that raise concerns of how they are coping in their time of emotional crisis.

Milk Price War

I spoke in Parliament recently on the milk price war that has been underway For society’s wellbeing, the return to work, the return to school and the between Coles and Woolworths. While the lower prices are good for return to an active life is important not just for the sufferer but for the consumers in the short term, they may have a negative impact over the family and as part of the economic recovery of this state. longer term. They can harm smaller retailers who try to lower their prices to Queensland, and in particular this government, must commence a public compete with the larger retailers and also the dairy industry, which fears the campaign across media outlets, print, radio, television, the web and 5IFSFµTHPPESFBTPOPVUPG8FTUQBDDVTUPNFSTDIPPTF lower prices may result in lower prices for them at the farm gate.

Queensland has once again led the way! People in all other States are joining Queenslanders for the first time this month to celebrate Purple Day and help spread the word about epilepsy. Purple Day on Saturday, March 26 was founded in 2008 by nine-year-old Canadian girl, Cassidy Megan. Motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy, Cassidy created a special day dedicated to the world’s most common serious brain order. She wanted other children with epilepsy to know they were not alone, and she wanted to help others better understand the condition. Cassidy named the day after the internationally recognised color for epilepsy, lavender. Since 2009, Epilepsy Queensland has supported Cassidy’s initiative and encouraged Queenslanders to wear purple and be involved in Purple Day activities. To participate in Purple Day, supporters can purchase a purple ribbon and other merchandise, or hold purple-themed activities on or leading up to Purple Day to raise donations; for instance, dress in purple for the day, decorate classrooms or offices in purple or host morning teas and lunches where purple food or table decorations dominate. Visit or contact Epilepsy Queensland on 1300 852 853.

ring originated here and is known around the world as a symbol of enduring romantic love. This place was immortalised in a song of yesteryear made famous by the late Bing Crosby:

With the Grafx Group Contributed by Philip Crowe

‘If you ever go across the sea to Ireland, Then maybe at the closing of your day, You will sit and watch the moon rise over Claddagh, And see the sun go down on Galway Bay.’

And see the sun go down . . . The light of the sun at dawn and dusk can add interest to a scene. This photo was taken late in the afternoon in County Galway in the west of Ireland. In the foreground are the shores of Galway Bay at low tide, and in the background are the darkening skies of evening. These contrast with the well lit buildings in the centre of the image and draw the viewer’s attention to them. The overall impression is one of calm at the end of the day. 

Photo by Philip The design of the buildings and the materials of construction are typical of this part of Ireland. The buildings are now part of Galway town, although previously this was the site of the fishing village of Claddagh. The Claddagh

The photo was taken with a Panasonic Lumix digital camera Model DMC-FZ5. The settings used were f5.6 at 1/500 sec. with ISO of 100 and a focal length of 18 mm. U3A Beerwah Grafx Group meets each Thursday at Beerwah Library. U3A Beerwah Grafx Group meets each Thursday at Beerwah Library.

Curves of Beerwah-Area Empowers Women to Help Fight Heart Disease Glasshouse Country women can help fight heart disease while they work out, thanks to a local fundraising campaign announced by Curves. From March 21 to April 2, Linda Curves of Beerwah will waive its usual service fee, in exchange for a donation to the Heart Foundation. Funds raised will go towards helping to raise awareness of the risks of heart disease in Australian women, said Curves of Beerwah owner Linda. Far from being a men’s-only health condition, heart disease is the number one cause of death in Australian women. The disease kills four times as many women as breast cancer, with around 11,000 lives lost each year in Australia. Despite these alarming statistics, Australian women are still dangerously unaware of the heart disease risk they face, with only about 30 per cent aware of this fact.

Dr Lyn Roberts, National CEO of the Heart Foundation, said the organisation was delighted to receive support from Curves to improve women’s heart health. “We would like to encourage as many Beerwaharea women as possible to visit Curves during this period. Our aim is to raise as much funds as we can, to fight heart disease. Importantly, at a local level, we are keen to demonstrate how good exercise and healthy eating can greatly reduce the risks of heart disease amongst Beerwah-area women,” said Linda. Reducing the risks of heart disease requires both regular physical activity and healthy eating, according to Linda. “Increasingly however, women are so busy these days that it can be hard to fit everything in,” she added. “Curves is a proven ‘one-stop shop’ for women, in terms of both physical activity and healthy eating. The scientifically developed 30-minute Curves workout, combined with the proven Curves Weight Management Plan, is certainly a strategy that women should consider, in terms of reducing their heart risks.”

If you would like to speak to a local woman who has used physical activity and good eating to reduce her risks of heart disease, please contact Linda of Curves of Beerwah on 5494 0455.

Body Wraps to drop a dress size

Business Feature

Secret recipes of the ancient Aztecs and used religiously by Cleopatra, body wraps have been tried and tested over many years. The treatment involves wrapping your entire body from heels to neck in mineral clay soaked bandages. The result is complete skin rejuvenation, a full body detox with the side effect of inch loss from your body. This intense inch loss treatment is formulated from 100 per cent natural ingredients and herbal extracts that flush away toxins and stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory system. The main ingredient in the wraps is 100 per cent pure mineral clay that has the ability to absorb many times its weight in toxins. The body wraps also contain a blend of Dead Sea mineral salt, camomile, Aloe Vera and green tea extracts; all of which combine to provide exfoliation and total skin rejuvenation. Combined with the warmth and gentle pressure of the wraps, the lymphatic system goes to work to reduce the toxic load on the body. The side effect of this detox is inch loss from the trouble spots including stomach, hips, thighs and buttocks. The inch loss experienced following the wrap is not due to fluid loss, in fact, customers are encouraged to drink a full two litres of water prior to and following treatment. With a guaranteed minimum loss of 15 cm measured across the body, one can expect the results to last for up

to 30 days or longer providing they retain a fairly healthy lifestyle. Inch loss body wraps are the perfect treat before a special event such as birthday parties, corporate events and are especially popular for brides who want to look their best for their special day. This long kept secret is now available right here in Beerwah with Purity Body Wraps mobile service. Purity Body Wraps offer this unique Day Spa treatment that takes centimetres from your waist, hips and thighs...all in the space of an hour. Lose a minimum of 15 cm or your wrap is complimentary. Our entire product range is paraben and phthalate free. We ensure that during your detox only the minerals are being absorbed into your body, not nasty chemicals, preservatives, fragrances or heavy metals. Now available throughout the Sunshine Coast from Caboolture to Noosa. Mobile Body Wrap Service – Purity Body Wraps Contact - 07 5439 0872. More information or to book Online: MARCH 16 2011 |

Time to check out Twin Scapes For something a bit different, check out the upcoming The Twin Scapes Pinhole Photography exhibition at Caloundra Regional Gallery from March 9 to April 10. The Twin Scapes is a photographic response to the overwhelming wave of digital technology sweeping the world. Through a fascination of pinhole photography as the most basic means of producing an image directly on to paper, without lens or film, Japan and Australia are featured through the eyes of a Japanese photographer, Hideharu Matsuhisa. Hideharu used natural light at its highest and lowest levels resulting in an intense play on shadows and shade to depict differences in history, culture and sensitivities.

Just who is pulling the strings?

Because it’s obvious from the letter to members of the Beerwah RSL Club by Denis Steer that it’s all a done deal and get ready for the club’s funeral on April 9. The location of the RSL makes it in a prime position to benefit when the new Beerwah Rail Interchange comes to town, heaven knows when, but how can they be so short sighted. It might seem to the casual observer that they almost don’t want any public opinion of what is part of Beerwah’s identity and sets it apart from all the other railway towns. Five weeks is crazy to try to get the members and public on board to stop this - so who is pulling the strings and why this is such a secret event? And just who benefits from the closure because it’s certainly not the members or the people of Beerwah and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. I just hope I’m wrong to assume these matters and that public debate will result in common sense prevailing but they are cutting it very fine. John Donelan Beerwah resident and member of the Beerwah RSL

Congratulations to the RSL Sub-Branch

You have successfully destroyed a wonderful club, and people’s lives who work there. I wonder if the members of the Sub-Branch sleep at night – maybe they do, knowing they have had a victory. Power doesn’t prove anything … only causes unhappiness. Mary Southern Beerwah

Is there a hidden agenda?

I attended the so called ‘information meeting’ in order to discover why a vibrant and much patronised club should be suddenly closing. As an occasional visitor, and a member of another RSL club, I decided that it was not my place to offer comment or inquiry at this time. Extraordinary as it seemed to the several hundred anxious members, was the fact that the three people assembled at the top table (including the Club's solicitor), gave absolutely no further detail beyond that which was already known. Surely the citizens - let alone the RSL members are entitled to be told the reason? My understanding is that should a dispute arise between landlord and tenant where no reasonable cause for eviction can be found, that a judge will find for the tenant. Could there be a hidden agenda known only to committee members that they are reluctant to disclose? J. Valenta Landsborough

No explanation at meeting

A well attended meeting held at the Beerwah RSL Club on Thursday, March 10 failed to explain to members why the Sub-Branch was evicting the club on April 12.

Explanations from the clubs’ President and Spokesman continually stated that the club had on several occasions approached the Sub-Branch asking for information on breaches of the lease agreement or reasons for the eviction in order for the club to sit down with the Sub-Branch and sort out any problems. To date the only response from the Sub-Branch is a referral to a lease agreement clause which states either party can terminate the lease with 30 days notice in writing. The meeting ended with members being urged to approach the Sub-Branch either by email, post or physically going to the Sub-branch office and asking for a published explanation of its actions by issuing an eviction notice. The entire meeting felt they deserved an answer considering the amount of input members have contributed over the years making the Beerwah RSL Club, one of the most successful financial and safest venues in the state. Surely the Sub- Branch does not expect the community to quietly to wait for the venue to reopen, in a time span that could be anything from three to 12 months away, and not have to explain their actions. M. Christie Morayfield

Management Committee should resign

The sad demise of the Beerwah RSL and Citizens Memorial Club Inc., as it is presently constituted, is nearly upon us and, as a citizen member of the club, I feel absolutely gutted. At the ‘information meeting’ held last Thursday I asked how it could have been allowed to happen. I received very little ‘information’ in return, on the flimsy excuse that it was ‘commercial-inconfidence’. What baloney! However the reasons really don't matter now, for the fact is we are faced with eviction from our premises by a landlord who has exercised his right to do so under the terms of the lease. The only question now is: to save the club, can we offer the landlord sufficient inducement to suspend or cancel the eviction notice before the due date? Our management committee was elected by us, the members, to supervise the running of the club. By and large they have done a very good job, giving us great atmosphere, excellent staff and a range of facilities to suit a wide variety of needs. However, they have failed in one vital area. They have failed to ensure the continuity of the club in its present form and for this they have to accept sole responsibility. It is the committee's actions that have allowed the landlord to take the action he has. When a person is elected to a management committee he/she immediately takes responsibility for the permanency of the club as the top priority. No one else is responsible, because the members have placed their trust in those persons to continue their club. And our management committee has failed us in this regard. The members of the management committee should consider what they have done to us and the club and, as a matter of principle, should tender their resignations immediately because their positions are no longer tenable. This would indicate that they have the welfare of the club at heart. If they don't, then people will make their own judgements. A new committee could then be formed as soon as possible to request the landlord to delay his eviction notice date. It may be a slim chance but it is the only chance we have. If these things do not occur then the notes of the ‘Last Post’ will be played, not only for the men and women who have gone before, but also for our club. John Gresham Booroobin

Tell me it is not true

Recently I discovered some things about Council’s spending that surprised and shocked me – and I have to say I really hope that they are not true. The first one is that our rates notices are printed by a Brisbane company, and secondly that the local Parks and Gardens maintenance work is now contracted to a Tweed Heads based company, who then subcontract the work to Gold Coast trades people. When we lived in the Caloundra City Council area all of the rates notices were printed within the Shire. So why then does the amalgamated Council need to send the work outside of the area? And for years Council have employed local people who are a part of our local community, the kind of people who take pride in doing a good job because they live here and have a true passion for the area. I can’t believe that Council would no longer think this is important to employ locals. This is not just about creating local employment but also that this money then goes back into our local economy. I can’t imagine that many ratepayers would be happy to see their hard earned rates money being sent outside of the area when these tasks have previously been performed just as well by local businesses. Please Council, tell me this is not true? Helen Manson Beerburrum

Thank You

On behalf of the Gowen Drive Bush Care Group, I would like to thank Gwen and the Glasshouse Mountains Advancement Network inc (GMAN) for their generous donation of the Richmond Birdwing Butterfly Vine which will help us complete our project in the Gowen Drive Park. Barb Rundle Landsborough

Council Looking after Workers

GCNews had an article in last week's paper – Where are all the Black Spots on our States Roads? Where do we start? However, that is not why I am concerned. Today I was driving up to Beerwah and noticed the Council trucks, two in fact between Glasshouse and Beerwah, two men in each and they were frantically throwing fine bitumen into the pot holes that once again (after rain) appeared on our local roads. Besides nearly getting themselves run over in the process, no Flagmen or Stop and Go people looking after them, where is Occupational Health and Safety? Granted they were wearing their Orange vests, but the two lorries in front of me failed to slow for them. When is the SCC going to wake up, stop wasting rate payers money? All they do is band aid repairs, the roads in our local area look like a Packapoo ticket. They identify the trouble, dig the hole out and then pour in fine bitumen which as soon as it rains again, the water gets in and we have bigger pot holes than we did before. No sealant is used, it costs a little more. If our roads were sealed and put down correctly in the first place, there is no need to return. Take a look at Bells Creek Road where it was finally completed, when they finished that they went straight back and filled in the pot holes. Then we have Pikes Road, the very same thing, and they know that GHC Coaches use that road, along with farming vehicles. I was told when I was a little boy (and that was a long time ago) ‘son, you have to spend money to make money, or save money in the long run’. Pity SCC doesn’t learn that lesson. An idea would be to purchase their own hot mix road making machine, rent it out the worst six months of the year to other councils. Ryde Council in Sydney did exactly that and it worked for them very well. Brian Stallworthy Glass House Mountains

When nature calls

I’d like to use this Letter to the Editor as a forum to thank Annette from Beerwah Supa IGA for her help last week. We were shopping in the spice aisle when my daughter Lillian, with timing only two-year olds possess, declared that she needed to go to the toilet. Annette was stacking shelves nearby and helped avert every mother’s toilet training nightmare. While I thanked her, I’d like her to know that I’m still smiling at a stranger’s kindness. The thoughtfulness that she showed demonstrates one of the reasons why living in this area is second to none. Amanda Smyth Glass House Mountains

Just as corrupt as its predecessor

When I received a call from a young person seeking my permission to conduct a so called safety inspection, on recently installed ceiling insulation, I needed to ask only two questions to find out that this program is just as flawed, and just as corrupt as its predecessor. Firstly, how on earth can I trust the integrity of a caller who tells me they work for the government when in fact they really are being paid their wages by a major ceiling insulation firm. Secondly, when I am told the so called ‘independent’ inspection will be undertaken by that very same firm, and further, that the inspector will ‘if the safety inspection fails’ immediately fix the problem or re-schedule a future date if complex repairs are needed. I know exactly what the outcome of the inspection will be – and it won't be in my best interests. Now I may be old – but I am fully in control of my faculties. I refuse absolutely to accept that a commercial firm should represent themselves as the government. And I also question the integrity and openness of a process where the caller, the inspector and the technicians all have open slather from the government to draw up their own pay cheque. How can I get a cut of this sort of action? This is just a continuation of the enormous waste of taxpayers’ money that its predecessor started. And for the record, I was ignored when I asked the Home Insulation Program Review Office to advise how they review the actual independence of the inspection and the remediation work it creates. Arthur Lovewell Beerwah

Entry statement

The ugly concrete pillar now spoiling the entrance to Glass House Mountains is an appalling waste of ratepayers' money. The $35,000 should have been spent on another five kilometres of footpaths, more mowing and edging by the Council, extended kerbing and channelling, the restoration of free weekend dumping of green waste (another 7,000 trailer loads), giving us back the annual kerbside clean-up, quicker pot-hole filling on our rain damaged roads and so on. Turn north from Bowen Road into Glass House Mountains Tourist Drive (I don't like that other name) the height of the vision-obscuring grass is downright dangerous, the park-toilet area at Glass House Mountains would deter the most leg-crossed tourist, the park around the tourist centre should be mown and edged weekly, not when someone decides to get around to it, etc. Readers from Beerwah and Landsborough, you will be getting one of these monstrosities unless you complain NOW. Each of the three towns is adequately signposted with green and white M.R.D. signboards. Cr Anna -- you have worked hard for us for years. Much appreciated. Don't drop the ball in your last year. Roger Bonhomme Glass House Mountains

I agree

The new sign to the entrance to the Glasshouse Mountains township looks great but what we really need is an upgrade to the Reed Street and Steve Irwin Way intersection! Last year Cr Anna Grosskreutz and I were advised by representatives from Main Roads that this intersection had been nominated for upgrade. A planning study was undertaken to identify the traffic and road realignments required and the complete cost analysis for this project. I will make contact with the Department again to get an update on the results and will continue to lobby the Government for the funds to see this upgrade completed. Andrew Powell MP Member for Glass House

Division 1, Sunshine Coast Council Election

As a resident of division 1, it is my intention to stand for election at the upcoming Sunshine Coast Council Election. In 1985 I moved from Caboolture to Beerwah with my husband Jeff. This enabled us to raise our children in and contribute to a community which warmly welcomed us and which we are still very proud to be a part of. Thirteen years ago, Jeff and I purchased Beerburrum Service Centre, which over the years has brought us in contact with many residents and fellow business owners. This platform has provided us with a further understanding of the area’s ‘needs and wants’ and, although this business is close to my heart, it would be able to operate and function just as normal without me. I have given the role and responsibility of Division 1 Councillor serious thought for several years and have completed educational study to enhance my understanding of how a large organisation like the Sunshine Coast Council operates and how it can be best served. Most would agree that Cr Anna will be leaving ‘big shoes to fill’ but I am more than ready for the challenge and over the next 12 months intend to build on my current understanding of council / community matters to enable me, if elected, to serve you from day one! Ann Ross Grad Dip AICD, Grad Dip Bus Beerburrum

In response to 'A prize to be mulched?' (GCNews March 9, 2011)

It is $120.00 per hour to hire a mulcher, approximately $65.00 per hour for two workers using a mulcher, so I say at $6.50 per trailer to drop off the green waste and at $7.50 per trailer of mulch to pick it up is a steal! I read the Glasshouse Country News every week and have noted ads at $25.00 per square metre of mulch that is a lot dearer than $7.50. Name supplied Glass House Mountains As a member of the community I am very well versed in the controversy of the pricings at the Sunshine Coast Councils transfer stations and landfills. It only costs $6.50 to dump your green waste and the mulch is $7.50 to pick up or $80.00 a truck load delivered. Which is, yes, the green waste recycled for the publics’ benefit. The mulch vouchers were cancelled around mid last year. As most people know around the area, that if you have bought your house in the area and pay rates which include paying for a brown topped wheelie bin, (green waste use only) you would also receive those vouchers. A lot of people made very good use of these vouchers and were always happy with product and service. Also if you have had dealings with other councils in other areas, you would know that there is always fine print to read, as with any other official paperwork.

Pumicestone District Orchid and Foliage Society News Bus trip to the Redland Bay area on May 22. We will be visiting various orchid nurseries, an open garden and a back yard grower. Cost is $35.00 per person including morning and afternoon tea. You are invited. Call Dennis 5497 6780 or Di 5496 2861 to book.

Bromeliad Society Inc. Contributed by Bob McLean Phone: 0427 606 240 Recent months have been a delight to be in the garden observing various plants presenting their beauty and colour. The Portea petropolitana var. extensa caught my eye when driving down the street in early November. It was growing in a neighbours’ native tree and had this huge flower spike growing out of the foliage. The parent bromeliad plant from which it had shot up was set under the tree and the flower spike had projected up to at least three metres, to present the glorious spray of flower buds. The reddish pink steam and limbs are tipped with violet and purple flower buds. This plant has now lost it beauty but the same plant in our garden is still in flower. The only the difference between mine and the neighbours is one is in full sun and the other is in 70 per cent shade. The plant in our garden did not set flower until Christmas and will still be holding its colour until the beginning of winter. The Portea genus is small with only nine species, but it is spectacular. Porteas are all native to costal Brazil where they grow on sand and rocks, usually in full sun. They are almost all large plants, and combined with their toughness and appearance, they are very well suited to large-scale landscaping.

An Orchid Workshop will be held on Sunday, March 20 at 635 Beachmere Road, Beachmere starting at 1.30pm. Topic of the day will be on growing the Oncidium Alliance.

In habit, Portea are terrestrial and occasionally epiphytic. They are medium to large plants of spreading or upright rosette form, resembling the larger stately species of the genus Aechmea. The foliage is green or yellow-green, with prominent spines on the edges of the leaves. This spectacular plant (Portea petropolitana var. extensa), with large rosettes up to 1m high and wide, is the most commonly grown of all the Porteas. The flower spikes as I described earlier are spectacular, reaching 1.5 meters or more. The 50cm long ‘spray’ of flowers with purple petals and blue-green ovaries, is a sight to behold. The stem carries many beautiful flowers; and after flowering, the masses of dark purple berries form to maintain the colourful display. When in flower, a clump of this plant is a striking sight in any garden.

The next meeting will be held on Monday, March 28 at the Ningi Community Hall, Bribie Island Road, Ningi starting at 7.30pm. There will be a guest speaker talking about identifying and eradicating weeds. Visitors always welcome. For more information phone Di on 5496 2861.

Sunshine Coast Orchid Society Farewells Inaugural President The February Cultural Meeting of the Sunshine Coast Orchid Society Caloundra held special significance for its members as we farewelled our inaugural President, Ernie Barnet. Ernie, who is the current Patron, was involved in the inception of the society just over 50 years ago. He has maintained an active interest in the society for all those years and is now moving from his home at Landsborough to a retirement village at Sandgate. Most of Ernie’s orchids will continue to bloom in the area in their new homes, as he has had to sell his collection. However, Ernie has promised he will be back as often as possible to join in the meetings and shows, one of which will be held at the Uniting Church Hall on April 8 and 9. SCOSC members hope Ernie will be available for this show so he can present the Patron’s Trophy for the member who wins the most points, which he donates every year.

Stan Griffiths Catholic Church The past week has been a very difficult one for the Catholic community in Maleny with the deaths of two of our most cherished members. Not only were Ray Daley and Josie McPhee valued by the Catholic community but also their contributions to the wider community were well recognised and acclaimed by the broader public. This acclaim was evident at the funerals of both these people when the Sacred Heart Church was full to overflowing on both occasions. While there were many from the Catholic community present, there were also many others from the wider public who came to pay their respects to these two remarkable but unassuming people. Both Ray and Josie have been part of the Maleny scene for a very long time. Ray lived there for all his 75 years while Josie and husband Ken came in the early 60’s. Both families were involved in the dairy industry until its demise in recent years. Both Ray and Josie would have seen themselves as ordinary, simple people, yet their lives were extraordinary. Ray devoted himself to building up a prize dairy herd while Josie gave all her strength to helping

Ken on the farm and being the best of mothers. However their energies were not given solely to their own small world as they were interested in the broader aspects of life of the Maleny community. The contributions made by these two unassuming people was immense, and the respect given them was justified. St Paul has many good things to say about how to live a good life. One of the most profound observations he made can be applied to both these two fine people. Paul reminds us that the life and death of each of us has a resounding effect on all. He goes on to remind his readers that if we are alive we live for the Lord and if we die we die to the Lord so that alive or dead we are the Lord’s. This awareness of God’s presence in every aspect of life was the motivation behind the life experience of both Ray and Josie. The good that emanated from both lives was evident to all as both were the epitome of what it means to be a Christian person.

Local Black Belt Joseph Beerwah local student Joseph Hill followed in the footsteps of sister Rebecca in achieving the level of Junior Black Belt in Rhee Tae Kwon Do recently. Joseph, who has been studying Rhee Tae Kwon Do since 2006, was assessed and promoted by World Master Chong Chul Rhee who is the founder of Tae Kwon Do in Australia, head of the Rhee Tae Kwon-Do Organisation, World Master Instructor and Chief Instructor for Australia and New Zealand. He is also the President of the Tae Kwon-Do Instructors' Federation of Australia and New Zealand. Since introducing the Art of Tae Kwon-Do in Australia 40 years ago, World Master Rhee has led hundreds of demonstrations throughout the nation. He has demonstrated the Art at Universities, Colleges, Air Force bases, Army and Police Academies, and to the public. He has been featured in countless newspaper and magazine articles and brought the spectacular Art of Rhee Tae Kwon-Do to millions of television viewers. Through unending hard work and perseverance World Master Rhee has established a very strong foundation for the Art of Rhee Tae Kwon-Do, with the assistance of a massive network of Black Belt assistant Instructors. Rhee Tae Kwon-Do is booming in Australia and New Zealand today, with many thousands of students and the community sharing in the benefits of World Master Rhee's leadership and dedication to the art. Visitors are welcome to come and see Master Rhee assessing students including Black Belt applicants at the Sunshine Coast ‘Action Day’ this Saturday March 19, 10.30am at Maroochydore State High School.
