Hi Everyone... If you are a regular GC&M News reader you will know I quite often go out for breakfast, lunch or dinner, take photos of my meal, call it work and even claim it as a legitimate expense. Last week I was able to share the love and treat the team to lunch in the office from the Beerwah Chinese Takeaway to feature in this week’s Local Eats section - check out the photos on page 19. The only catch to ordering is that everyone must order something different and, ideally, meals that will be good for photographing. Sadly I didn’t have any luck convincing anyone to go with the deep fried Mars Bars from the entrée menu, which I thought might be a nice way to get everyone ready for all their Easter chocolate consumption. Everyone definitely enjoyed the chance to have a fortune cookie, so we had a meal and entertainment. Just in case you are wondering my fortune was: “Your life will get more and more exciting”. Wow those fortune cookie makers are amazing. We are just about to close the office for a week for a holiday – so of course my life is about to get more exciting. Hope you all enjoy a lovely Easter break and see you in a fortnight.

Local News Local mum receives top medal A major car accident and the arrival of her second child could have spelled the end of university life for Landsborough local Deborah Kelsey but instead she went on to exceed all her expectations. She not only graduated from the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) with a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) last week but also received a Chancellor’s Medal for her distinguished contributions to university life. Among many involvements in university life she was a member of the Student Representative Council, Academic Board, Academic Appeals Committee, Student Engagement Leadership Team and worked as a USC ambassador, a mentor to other students, a specialist technologies officer and helped set up USC’s School of Education Society. Deb, 30, says that despite facing challenges along the way, it was the support of her lecturers, tutors and university staff that kept her going to achieve a grade point average of 6.29 (from a possible seven) and gave her the confidence to take on responsibilities outside of the classroom. “I was studying when I found out I was going to have another baby and I thought ‘what have I done?’ but that was pretty short-lived after I had discussions with staff and worked out a study plan,” she said. This included bringing her baby to classes, asking for help from her lecturers and USC support services, and juggling childcare with her mum who is studying social work at USC.

Deborah with USC Chancellor Sir Angus Houston Even when a car accident left her with concussion, whiplash, hearing loss and nerve damage, Deb found a way to carry on, driven by a passion for ensuring children have a quality education in their vital early years. USC senior lecturer Dr Ali Black said Deb’s contributions extended to the wider community where she had been a parent representative at her children’s kindergarten and advocated for children while supporting local education and sustainability initiatives. Deborah completed her placement at Mooloolah State School while also working at USC in the information technology and marketing departments.

Public hearing in Caloundra The Queensland Parliamentary Committee Inquiry into Aged Care, Palliative Care and Voluntary Assisted Dying will hold its first public hearing outside of Brisbane in Caloundra on Friday, May 3 at the CCSA Hall in Nutley St, Caloundra from at 10.30am. Mark McArdle, the state Member for Caloundra and deputy chair of the Queensland Parliamentary Health, Communities, Disability Services and Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Committee, said the committee inquiry would conduct extensive hearings across the state but Caloundra was the first regional venue where evidence would be taken on aged care, palliative care and voluntary assisted dying. “Evidence will be taken directly from members of the public at the hearing with all evidence being transcribed by Hansard then used by committee members to formulate their final report, which is due to be tabled in Parliament house on November 30,” Mr McArdle said. At the hearing, the inquiry will hear from invited witnesses as well as from members of the public who registered their interest in being a witness. This can be done by completing the online form available at or by phoning Mark McArdle’s office on 3553 6626 or 1800 504 022. “It is important that people have their say on these very important topics,” Mr McArdle said.

“Importantly people who provide evidence will be given an opportunity to state their position on all three or any of the topics under consideration and then be questioned by members of the committee to tease out further information that will assist in providing a full understanding of people’s experiences and wishes.” Mr McArdle said as the inquiry was conducted by a committee of the Parliament all formalities concerning the conduct of the meeting would be adhered to. “This is so evidence given to the committee can be recorded by Hansard, identifying those who provide evidence and ensure evidence can be tabulated and provided to the committee to assist in preparing the final report,” he said.

Glasshouse Country & Maleny News

Approval fuels Maleny anger Sunshine Coast Council last week approved controversial plans for a new petrol station opposite the Maleny primary school. The development faced determined opposition from local and school communities concerned about the negative impacts of a petrol station on the health and safety of the school children and of local road users. However, the concerted protests, lobbying of local and state government representatives, letter writing and a 600-plus signature petition could not sway the council planning officers to reject the application. In reality, council could not even take the community objections into account as the development was deemed to be “code assessable” under the current town planning scheme. Those hostile to the development location are devastated. Spokesperson for the group No Fuel Opposite Our School Ever Angie Kelly said that parents of the Maleny State School students, along with many in Maleny and the surrounding community, were furious about council’s decision to approve an eightbowser petrol station only 50 metres from more than 400 primary school students. “A growing number of parents are now finding an alternate school for their kids to ensure they are safeguarded from the inherent risks associated with such an inappropriate development,” she said. “Council ignored the deeply flawed traffic impact assessment report submitted by the developer. “Traffic congestion on Bunya Street is horrendous at school drop off and pick up times. The servo will significantly add to that congestion and introduce

major pedestrian safety risks to students getting to and from school,” Ms Kelly said. She said the council had dismissed international research highlighting significant health and safety impacts on children exposed to a petrol station, with best practice recommending a minimum 150 metre buffer between a sensitive use such as a school and a petrol station. “Many doctors and scientists have come out voicing their strong concerns about the servo development, as they too believe that the health and safety risks are too big to ignore,” Ms Kelly said. To limit the impacts of the development on the local area, council imposed 95 planning conditions on the approval. It has reinforced the primary function as a petrol station, with the retail sale of goods and food to remain an ancillary function with strict trading times of 5am to 10pm. Bulk fuel deliveries must not occur between 7am and 4pm on any school day, limiting the risk to children due to spillages or vapours escaping. Many other conditions have been imposed relating to public safety, urban design, energy efficiency, acoustic amenity, air quality and vapour recovery. Significantly the council did not include a recommendation from the state government to restrict Lawyer Street access to exit only. Local councillor Jenny McKay, who felt hamstrung by the process, said that she knew some in the community would be very disappointed by the decision and that she “genuinely shares those concerns”. “This application is fully compliant with the Sunshine

OPEN DAY Saturday 18 May 10am to 2pm

Coast Planning Scheme and it’s code assessable and supported by the state government through conditions to manage the traffic and safety issues,” Cr McKay said. The state government, which was the concurrent agent and authority responsible for Bunya Street, had engineers conduct thorough investigations, which had been peer reviewed and followed by council’s engineers to provide a number of conditions to mitigate anticipated traffic and safety issues, Cr McKay said. “These stringent conditions were included to recognise the community angst demonstrated towards this mooted facility, especially in regard to its close proximity to Maleny State School. “I do recognise that some people have indeed supported the development. However, generally speaking, I believe that whilst the majority of the community recognised and supported the need for an additional service station facility within the Maleny precinct, I am acutely aware that the specific location has always been the great concern and continues to be so,” Cr McKay said. But the fight may not be over yet. Buoyed by the recent success of the Mudjimba community in a Planning and Environment Court appeal against a similar petrol station approval in their town, Maleny locals are seriously looking at their options. “Now it is up to the local community to band together and fight this development in the courts to ensure the local and state governments meet their duty of care,” Ms Kelly said. She called for legal professionals who care about children, community and appropriate development to connect with No Fuel Opposite Our School Ever on Facebook.

New prize in show cookery section Ivon our local treasure By Glennis Barber Last year the Maleny Show lost a wonderful friend and a fantastic contributor to the cookery section. Landsborough’s Monica Smith had been bringing her cooking, jams and preserves and handcrafts to the Maleny Show for more than 70 years. Each year the stewards of the cookery section welcomed her and her early entry sheet of not just one or two entries, but 20-30. On judging day, with the help of her wonderful family, in would come endless plates of cakes, biscuits and puddings and we would know that there would be a great display on the shelves for the public to see. As a result, Monica would often win the special prize for Most points in section P – Cookery, and with her entries in the jams and preserves might also win the perpetual trophy for Most points in sections P and Q Combined. Some friendly chatter and a few hugs made the day for her - and for us. Thanks to her daughter, Jennifer Rolfe from Bribie, Monica’s memory will live on in the form of a perpetual trophy to encourage those who enter the competition for most points in sections P and Q and come in second to keep trying. Jennifer said her Mum had always believed that if you tried and practised hard enough you would end up a winner. “This prize means so much to me and I know that Mum will be there in spirit,” Jennifer said. The winner’s name will be added to the trophy each year and there will be a special medallion for the winner to take home. Monica’s son-in-law and a grandson are also continuing in the family tradition of supporting the Maleny Show.

The second annual Fisher Community Awards was hosted recently by the Member of Fisher Andrew Wallace to recognise individuals and businesses who are giving back to the Sunshine Coast across 10 categories. Mr Wallace said the finalists were nominated by members of the public on the Sunshine Coast. “Our winners and finalists can reflect with pride on the fact that our community values and appreciates their work,” he said. Fisher’s Senior of the Year went to well known Glass House local and author Ivon Northage. Ivon loves our area, particularly the Glass House Mountains, with a fierce drive and dedication befitting a person a quarter his age. Over recent years he has worked tirelessly researching and writing his federally funded book ‘The National Heritage Listed Glasshouse Mountains’ so visitors and locals can be better informed on the history, geology, legend and environment of the area. He is also working on improving the walking trails for all to enjoy. Ivon’s energy, effort and knowledge of the mountains are legendary. He is now busy researching Matthew Flinder's visits to our area and also working to help design a monument to the man himself. He has been a regular volunteer at the Glasshouse Mountains Information Centre for more than 20 years. His nominator for the award said: “Ivon really is a living local treasure himself”.

Government may sell Peachester kids short Peachester locals are fighting for a vacant block of land to be developed as a park instead of being sold for housing. For many years, locals were under the impression that the land on the corner of High Street and Peachester Road at Peachester was earmarked to be a community park when it became available. However, in a shock announcement it was recently advertised to be sold at auction on May 18, causing much consternation among the locals. In June 2011, the divisional councillor at the time, Anna Grosskreutz, wrote in the Glasshouse Country News that the Sunshine Coast Council had been trying to secure the land from the state government as a “strategic parkland purchase” for about a decade and that she hoped that it would actually happen within the next year. Over the subsequent years, the community patiently waited for an announcement of a new park. The announcement instead was that the land was to be privately sold and lost forever. Concerned Peachester residents, including Ray Pulham, have banded together to have the decision reversed. “Over the years, Peachester community members have worked on demonstrating public interest in and use of public open space in Peachester,” Ray wrote on the Peachester community Facebook page. She said their efforts had seen locals make more use of the sports oval and cricket grounds located 1.5km north west of town. “The High Street land would provide open space park land that is close to the town centre in a

location that families could easily walk and ride to, and visitors would stop at. “It would make a great place for community gatherings like outdoor meetings, birthday parties and for unstructured play,” she said. It is now time for community members to have a say. Local state member Andrew Powell has received numerous calls and emails from Peachester locals asking for him to step in on their behalf. In response, Mr Powell has sent an urgent letter to Dr Anthony Lynham, the state Minister for Natural Resources, Mines and Energy, asking him to put a halt on the sale until “every effort is made to negotiate with the Sunshine Coast Council to transfer/purchase the land for a common recreational park”. Mr Powell is very receptive to the location becoming a community park. “I think it's a fantastic idea,” he said. “While I appreciate the investment the council has made in the cricket oval, residents continue to contact me wanting a play-based park in the centre of the community. “And I've had teenagers ask me for a skate park. The High Street land could easily accommodate all of this and deliver a great outcome for the community,” Mr Powell said. If the land is to become a community park, it will need to be controlled and managed by council. Division 1 councillor Rick Baberowski is similarly supportive. “I strongly agree with the community that the state

should not sell off this land and it’s particularly disappointing that the state did not choose to contact council or me about their intention to sell. With that in mind, I have drafted a letter to Minister Lynham respectfully asking him to stop the sale and transfer the land to council as a reserve,” Cr Baberowski said. “It’s my strong view that the community should not have to buy land already owned by the community. That makes no sense to me. “Based on the history of negotiations, I am confident that council officers could support a report to council recommending that council take over responsibility for maintenance of the site and for its use as a future local park.” In a step in the right direction, Minister Lynham was contacted for comment and confirmed that he has taken a particular interest in the situation. “I have asked my department to take another look at the decision,” he said.

BeeGees football club milestone

Beerwah Glasshouse Football Club (BeeGees) celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. It was one of only four foundation members of the Sunshine Coast Football Association. The 50th anniversary event was marked with an impressive display of memorabilia to reflect the club’s history and the attendance of original members and founding players. Five of the original team (pictured above) were present on the day and were presented with a special anniversary shirt. As befitting the occasion, the fixture that day was against Caloundra - the same club played 50 years previously. The Beerwah Glasshouse United Soccer Club officially formed on July 31, 1968 – the same year that the first season of a revived local competition was held. It featured the four clubs of Caloundra, Woombye, Maroochydore and Beerwah Glasshouse United. Before 1968 there were many attempts to form soccer teams on the Sunshine Coast (North Coast), dating as far back as 1920. According to the history overview presented on the BeeGees website (, the first recorded game of association football on the North Coast was played at Palmwoods between teams from Palmwoods and Buderim on July 31, 1920. In March 1922 the Beerburrum Soccer Club was formed and joined the North Coast Football Association (NCFA), with a Glasshouse Mountains team formed in 1930. In 1933 Glasshouse withdrew from the NCFA to play in the Brisbane competition. By 1935 for numerous reasons all soccer clubs on the coast either disbanded or were closed. No further records of games can be found in local newspapers until the 1968 revival. Bill Gouiros and Jim Nicopoulos were key drivers behind the BeeGees formation in 1968. The North Coast Soccer Association was formed in early 1968, initially comprising of two teams from Caloundra and Woombye. Beerwah locals Jim and Peter Nicopoulos were recruited to play for Caloundra but after a number of weeks they were asked if there were more players in the local area who could be recruited to boost numbers. When they turned up to the next game with 15 local players, the Beerwah Glasshouse United team was formed. The formation of the team predated the formation of the club. Grounds were made available at the Glasshouse Mountains Sports Club and the distinctive club colours of emerald and white confirmed. Interestingly, during the first season the players wore rugby league jerseys.

Ken Fullerton, Fidel Fernandez, Manuel Armestos, Lucky Chronopoulos and Alan Smerdon Over the years the clubhouse, grounds and amenities have gone from strength to strength through the tireless work and fundraising of local families and community groups. These improvements have also reflected the important social and community connection provided by sporting clubs for local residents and families. Woombye and the BeeGees are the only clubs still playing on their original grounds. In 2015, to better reflect the global appeal of the game, the BeeGees changed their official name replacing ‘soccer’ with ‘football’. The club has enjoyed many highlights over the years with players going on to play in representative teams and Premier League. It was a particularly stellar year in the club’s history in 1971 with every team entered in the Sunshine Coast competition winning their grand final. The club’s website lists a total of 15 grand final victories and 13 premierships over the years, including seven in succession from 1987 to 1993, which is a remarkable achievement.

Initially the club was formed as the Buderim and District Kennel Club on April 16, 1969, with 14 foundation members. It was later renamed as Sunshine Coast Kennel Club. In one year membership had grown to 37 and the numbers have continued to increase. To mark the 50th anniversary Laurel O’Halloran (nee Bendixen) pictured, a foundation club member, will be presented with honorary life membership. Laurel comes from a family heavily involved in dog shows. Her father bred and showed fox terriers and also trained border collies for sheepdog trials. Laurel said she decided to follow in her Dad’s footsteps and Welsh corgis were the breed she selected to show. “My then fiancé Russell O’Halloran and I decided to get a dog so we could meet up at dog shows. This was when we joined the Sunshine Coast Kennel Club as foundation members. Russell had always wanted a boxer so that is what we settled on.” After marrying Russell, the couple moved to Bundaberg and joined the Bundaberg Kennel Club and continued to show dogs. They also became involved in breeding and used the name Benroha boxers. Laurel and her daughter decided to keep a pup each from one litter and ended up showing the dogs in Brisbane and the Wide Bay area. Laurel’s sister Shaneen has continued to show dogs and work in various capacities in the dog show world. She is now an international all-breeds judge. Laurel says she has been lucky enough to be able to accompany Shaneen to shows around Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain and Europe. Laurel is looking forward to attending the 50th anniversary championship show and, in a nod to her own breeding history, is pleased that she will be presenting a ribbon/rosette for Best of Breed Boxer. “I’d just like to say thank you to the Sunshine Coast Kennel Club for being there at the very beginning. It is hard to believe it was 50 years ago,” Laurel said. “I have had many years of enjoying meeting people who enjoy the same interest and sharing it with our best friends - our dogs.” Entry to the championship show is free.

Protect yourself this flu season With the number of reported flu cases already up on previous years, there are predictions this will be one of the worse flu seasons on record. The ‘official’ flu season is fast approaching and expert advice suggests that the best time to get vaccinated is now until the end of May. Doctors at Landsborough offer the convenience of bulk billing for general practice care, and are pleased to be the first practice in the area to offer this service. With no out of pocket expenses for Medicare card holders, why not book in now and help protect yourself against the flu? Queensland flu season is typically from June to September and while protection from vaccination is expected to last the entire season, the best protection is generally provided in the first three-four months following vaccination. Dr Louise Mitchell (Dr Louise) and Dr John Dunlea (Dr John) from the Landsborough practice both urge community members to get vaccinated early. While flu symptoms can at best be unpleasant and inconveniently impact daily work and family routines, for those with compromised immune systems or the very young or elderly, complications from the flu in severe cases can unfortunately prove to be deadly. As a family oriented practice, Doctors at Landsborough offer a comprehensive range of services from general medicine to dermatology, mental health support, chronic disease management and more.

Both Dr Louise and Dr John are highly trained medical professionals with a wealth of knowledge they dedicate to treating patients through all stages of life. Friendly and approachable, patients can have a choice of seeing either a female (Dr Louise) or male (Dr John) doctor. Bookings are always available, and the practice is conveniently located next door to Australia Post at Landsborough. Book online at HotDoc or call 5360 9350. More details are available at

Take it easy this Easter

Stay safe this Easter long weekend - take it easy on the roads, take care around camp fires and be mindful while swimming. Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service (SCHHS) emergency staff specialist Dr Luke Burman said his emergency team had seen many patients whose Easter long weekend or school holiday was ruined by road trauma or injury. “We don’t really want to meet you at work this Easter but we will certainly be here if you need us,” Dr Burman said. SCHHS emergency departments have one of the highest ambulance presentation rates in Queensland and are becoming busier each year. “Our highly-skilled team of doctors and nurses is committed to providing clinical excellence to all of our patients,” Dr Burman said. He said that on any average day in 2018 around 379 patients in total attended SCHHS’s four emergency departments at Sunshine Coast University Hospital, Nambour General Hospital, Maleny Soldiers Memorial Hospital and Gympie Hospital. In comparison, on the Easter long weekend last year the total number of patient attendances was 399 on Good Friday, 447 on Easter Saturday, 460 on Easter Sunday and 494 on Easter Monday. Dr Burman said the figures spoke for themselves and urged people to take care over the Easter long weekend. “Easter is a time to enjoy the company of family and friends. We hope that people drink responsibly, appoint a designated driver and take care of each other,” he said. “Emergency departments are busy places and patients are attended to and treated according to how urgent their condition is. For example, patients with trauma injuries from a road accident or those with severe illnesses will take priority over more minor complaints.” SCHHS emergency departments are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A minor injury and illness clinic also operates at the Caloundra Health Service from 9am-9pm seven days a week.

Landsborough Neighbour Day brunch

Landsborough residents are being invited to share in some food and fun at a Neighbour Day brunch on Sunday, April 28. It will be held under the mango tree behind the Landsborough School of Arts Memorial Hall in Old Landsborough Road from 9am-12noon.

There will be live music by local performers, games, a coffee cart and Rotary will be selling brekky burgers (including vegetarian) with a free sausage sizzle for the kids. A long table will be set up or residents can bring their own picnic brunch and blanket or chair. While Neighbour Day was officially held on Sunday, March 31, one of the organisers, Naomi Keenan, said they wanted to celebrate and connect with the local community and thought the concept of Neighbour Day was the perfect opportunity to do that. “It’s planned to be a relaxed morning, hopefully filled with lots of laughter and conversation,” Naomi said. To reflect this year’s theme of ‘Loneliness – what neighbours can do to create connections’, residents are encouraged to invite a neighbour to come with them. Hinterland community development worker Jody Blackburn said loneliness was a growing issue in the community. “It’s really important that we take the time to get to know our neighbours to develop our sense of belonging, which enhances our wellbeing,” Jody said. If you have any questions or for more information call Jody on 0491 205 266.

Does your skin feel tight, tired and Does it look dehydrated, lacklustre and dull? An 02 Intraceuticals oxygen facial from the team at Clynic in Landsborough is a unique experience providing instant results you can see and feel. Just a one hour treatment will make your skin look and feel years younger, feel nourished and hydrated, while cell renewal and skin regeneration are stimulated. An Intraceuticals facial is gentle, relaxing and soothing and is suitable for all skin types. The appearance of many common skin ailments such as acne, rosacea, stretchmarks and scarring may be visibly improved. Believing that no two skins are alike, Clynic therapists offer a 20-minute skin analysis. This examines sebum build up, hydration degree and depth of sun damage as well as dietary patterns. Our findings are compiled and a suitable course of skin treatment recommended.

The team at Clynic knows that every face has its own interesting and unique features that make up its individual style. Their skills and their passion are to enhance what already exists and to enrich their client’s appearance. Clynic has successfully developed a reputation of being nurturing and professional, reliable and competent in all aspects of work performed and has an excellent record in achieving high level of customer satisfaction, with client’s health and safety being the first priority for any of their treatments. Lyn O’Connor first opened Clynic in 2007 and has recently expanded and moved just 700 metres down the road to her tranquil, inviting new premises at 3322 Old Gympie Road, Landsborough. Lyn is a cosmetic tattoo artist whose expertise lies in the subtle approach of using colour to enrich a client’s appearance and believes the key to cosmetic tattooing is working with the client’s morphology (the structure of the face). With over 20 years’ experience Lyn has developed a deep understanding of skin colour and skin theory. She is qualified with a diploma of micropigmentation and has trained in advanced makeup artistry, colour theory and facial morphology. However, it is tattoo training that Lyn specifically enjoys and challenges herself by keeping upto-date with all the latest specialist techniques, paramedical tattooing, advanced techniques,

removal and correction procedures. Joining Lyn at Clynic are Zola and Sarah. Zola is a beauty therapist who specialises in henna brows and oxygenation facials. As well as helping clients, Zola is often found in the office helping out with the administration and social media aspects of Clynic while also currently studying nursing. The newest team member is Sarah who has lived in the area all of her life. She has been diploma qualified since 2015 and absolutely loves making everyone feel and look their best by embracing their natural beauty. An artistic person with a keen eye for details, Sarah is passionate about skin care and helping clients achieve the results they are after. As well as facials and cosmetic tattooing, Clynic also offers eye treatments (tinting and sculpting) and male and female waxing. Head to or call 5494 8251 to book in.

Women Alive Festival

A free community event to highlight women’s wellbeing, resilience and strength will be held on Saturday, May 4 at the Beerwah Community Hall from 10am-3pm. The festival will be a positive, interesting and informative day with a number of information booths and presentations from guest speakers on topics including positive parenting, relationships with food, cyber security and understanding elder abuse. The day will also include a mix of interesting activities such as origami and star making, interesting stalls, book launches, a great fashion parade of upcycled fashions, raffles, a lucky door prize and children’s activities including storytelling in the library. Senior students from Beerwah High School and members of the CWA are contributing to the day. The Zonta Club of Caloundra, Act for Kids and Family and Child Connect have partnered to create the event and they hope to encourage connection and communication among women in the community. The aim is to create a safe and supportive network where women, especially vulnerable women, can feel free to ask for help and can search out assistance easily. The day will also offer information sharing and support from organisations currently operating in the area including Caloundra Community Centre, Integrated Family and Youth Services, Community Solutions, Uniting Care and Refocus. To find out more about the events and the full program go to the Zonta Caloundra Facebook page. Enquires about the shuttle bus can be made by contacting Marilyn on 0408 700 732.

Daffodil Day By Lea Parkes After taking on the volunteer role of coordinator for the Cancer Council Queensland’s Daffodil Day in Glasshouse Country for at least the past 12 years, Glenda Halpin would like to advise the community that she will no longer be able to continue in the role. Glenda said that over the years our community has always shown great support of the event, with many wonderful locals having volunteered to sell the daffodils and merchandise as well as those who have generously made purchases and donations each year. “I would also like to thank the local business operators in particular the local IGAs who have also assisted and allowed merchandise to be sold in their businesses. “As a community we have contributed significant funds to the project and I hope that someone else in the community will be able to continue on in the coordination role. “At this stage I have not found someone to put their hand up for the job but I am happy to talk to anyone who is interested to find out what it involves,” Glenda said. Daffodil Day is on Friday, August 23 this year and traditionally volunteers have sold flowers and merchandise on the Thursday and Saturday of that week as well. If you would like to make contact with Glenda please email your contact details to and we will forward them to Glenda.

Schedule a BreastScreen at Maleny

The BreastScreen mobile service will return to Maleny Soliders’ Memorial Hospital from April 24-May 17. Local women are encouraged to take advantage of the service and book in for their two-yearly breast screen. BreastScreen health promotion officer Jenny O’Dwyer said that eligible women aged 50-74 years were encouraged to prioritise their health and book in for a free breast screen. The service is also provided free to women aged 40 years and over. “We are proud to offer a sensitive and caring service that is fast, free, friendly and female that protects and supports the health of women,” Jenny said. A breast screen takes less than 30 minutes and a doctor’s referral is not needed. Early morning appointments starting at 7am have been scheduled to accommodate busy working women. “Even with a great amount of publicity about breast cancer, there are still a lot of women who do not make breast screening a regular part of their health regimen,” Jenny said. “Many women believe that they’re not at risk of developing breast cancer because none of their relatives have been diagnosed with it. “Nine out of every 10 women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of the disease. Women with a family history of breast cancer are more at risk, although most women diagnosed have no family history of the disease at all. “It’s not just women who receive a letter from BreastScreen Queensland who can participate in free screening. Any woman over 50 who’d like to be screened can simply call 13 20 50 to book, or they can book online at,” she said.

The Glasshouse Country Care story

They say that from little things big things grow and Glasshouse Country Care (GH Care) is a living example of just how true this is. Back in 1996 Annette James and Beerwah Business Association president Alan Mountain, set up the organisation with the goal of bringing care services to the semi-rural townships between Mooloolah and Beerburrum. The organisation originally operated from the old Beerwah community hall in Simpson Street with a couple of staff and a few volunteers providing a day centre and transport. In 1999, with the help of a government grant, they moved to their current premises, a GH Care has become a professional business seven-acre property in a relaxed rural setting on operating in a competitive marketplace offering Peachester Road at Beerwah. home care packages as well as becoming a Over the years and under the guidance of a registered NDIS provider. management committee made up of hard This has meant the size of the organisation and the working and dedicated community members, GH number of qualified staff continues to grow, making Care has grown to support 1,200 seniors and it one of Glasshouse Country’s largest employers. people with disabilities.

No we will not march on ANZAC Day, although we know we have earned the right. No we will not take our place as the marchers go proudly by, we who have made as many sacrifices as those who faced conflict and war, and have heard the sounds of shot and fire. No we will not march on ANZAC Day. We will be there, as we have always been there, quiet, solid, stoic, bearing the consequences of war and it’s aftermath. Oh we could march, and we would be accepted, but that has never been our role or place. A role and place we have taken by choice, more than circumstance. We may have never worn a uniform or entered bloody battle, but we have stood just as firm, loyal, steadfast and brave. I venture to say without us ANZAC Day would just be another day, we will never push ourselves to the front. Take but just a moment. Peer over the marchers’ shoulders as they go by, we are there in the background. We who have seen the worst of the wounds both physical and mental. We who continue to help repair them. We who have and always will be there, with our strength, support, love and understanding, no matter how hard that task may be, not just on the 25th of April, but every day. No we will not march on ANZAC Day. For we the ones that stayed behind, but we will certainly be there. Who are we? We are the mothers, daughters and wives and partners of our gallant soldiers. We will stand, applaud and cheer, and shed a tear, for that is what we do. But, no, we will not march on ANZAC Day. Neville Saffron, Beerwah Writers Group

A flow-on effect is that the management committee has now become a board of directors overseeing the strategic direction of the company. Two of the current board members are retiring after many years of service and the current board would like to invite community minded people to join their team.

The board meets bi-monthly at the Glasshouse Country Care premises in Beerwah and communicates electronically when necessary.

Glasshouse Mountains Advancement Network Insect armageddon

In years gone by, a drive in the country inevitably meant a windscreen covered in squashed insects. Have you noticed that these days our windscreens stay clean? Where have those huge numbers of insects gone? Insects comprise about two-thirds of all terrestrial species on the planet. However, the rate of extinction of insects is about eight times higher than that of vertebrates, with the most affected groups being the butterflies and moths (Lepidoptera), bees and wasps (Hymenoptera) and dung beetles (Coleoptera). Sydney researcher Francisco Sanchez-Bayo stated that on average 41% of all insect species are declining and 30% of those are heading towards extinction. And this is just the species we know about. He estimates that in Australia we have only identified about 30% of the insects that live here and we know little about the populations of most of these. The main causes for these declines appear to be habitat loss through extensive land clearing for urbanisation, road building and conversion to intensive agriculture, invasive species, climate change and agropollutants. Declines in insect populations also have roll on effects for other species. Parallel declines have already been recorded in predator species such as birds, frogs and lizards. Plant species that rely on insect pollination are at risk, in turn affecting the species that rely on those plants, such as mammals, birds and, of course, humans. Predictions are that if we continue the way we are going, there will be no insects in 15-20 years. Do you have an hour or two a month to spare?

Environment Play safe this Easter

Plantation forests are becoming increasingly popular destinations for recreation. To ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time this Easter and whenever they use the forests, HQPlantations is reminding visitors that as well as being working forests, they are also public places and users must behave responsibly and obey the law, including the Forestry Act. Here are a few of the rules you are required to comply with to enjoy Queensland’s plantation forests responsibly: Road rules apply. By law, your vehicles must be fully registered and roadworthy. You must have a licence to drive or ride the vehicle. You must stay on formed roads, drive to the conditions and observe safety signs indicating work sites or road closures ahead. Because children don’t have licences they cannot ride or drive in plantation forests. Please don’t drive in mud. This damages the roads and plantation roads are not government managed or funded roads. HQPlantations will be forced to close areas that become so badly damaged they cannot be used as access for fire protection or are too costly to maintain for forest operations, which disadvantages all recreation users. Respect the neighbours. Please keep vehicle noise down near houses and be considerate about when you ride or drive, particularly very early in the morning or late at night. A small area south of the Glass House Woodford Road has been closed to try to reduce excessive noise in this rural residential valley. Please don’t litter! If you brought it in, please take it out and dispose of it responsibly. No one likes a tosser. Groups require a permit. Five or more cars or motorbikes travelling together or 15 or more walkers, bike riders or horse riders require an organised event permit. If you don’t want to get a permit, which requires public liability insurance, travel in small groups of fewer than five vehicles or 15 people. You can find more information at Check the plantation is open. HQPlantations forests are often closed to the public before, during or after extreme weather events such as cyclones, strong winds, heavy rain or very high fire danger. It is your responsibility to check the plantation you plan to visit is open by going to the website

Living - Arts Mignon Smith exhibition

Autumn fair

The Maleny Arts and Crafts Group (MACG) will hold its annual Handmade in Maleny Autumn Fair at the Maleny Community Centre from Friday-Monday, May 3-6. There will be a great range of high quality, handcrafted homewares, fashion items and gifts available for sale - all made by the talented members of the craft group. There will also be lots of gorgeous gift ideas for Mother’s Day presents as well as a gallery of artwork on display. Shop local and purchase unique handmade products. There will also be a raffle for a quilt handmade by our quilters. The fair will open at 9am each day. Entry is free and EFTPOS is available. For more information please visit the MACG Facebook page.





If you haven’t had a chance to see this month’s exhibition at the Maleny Library there is still time to take a look at the work of Flaxton artist Mignon Smith. Mignon is a painter and sculptor who has had a passion for art all her life. As a child in South Africa she insisted on art lessons, which kindled a love for art that has remained with her over her 91 years. Mignon moved to Perth in 1978, where she painted and fired sculptures and pottery in her own kiln and wrote and illustrated children's books, which she shared with friends.

Featuring unique locally hand made crafts. with the Beerwah Grafx Group Desert elephants This picture was taken in the dry river bed of the Hoanib River in the north of Namibia by Henriette Scholtz. “We were having lunch under an Acacia tree when this group surprised us,” Henriette said. “They were about ten metres away from our vehicle at one stage. We had to wait for over an hour for them to move on in order to get the perfect shot!” These desert elephants, which are only found in Namibia and Mali, are not a separate species or subspecies. They are, however, uniquely adapted to their arid environment such as long-distance migration - up to 70km a day in search of food and water. They also possess a number of unique behaviours such as digging wells to purify their drinking water. They have a very different diet from African elephants due to their habitat. The much lower calcium diet is why their tusks are smaller and more brittle. There are only a mere 150 of the desert elephants left in the world. The ones in Namibia are spread out over an area the size of Victoria, which makes them hard to find. “We were very fortunate indeed,” Henriette said. Taken with a Canon 6D camera f7.1 1/500s ISO100.

Decluttering expert to speak at Caboolture lifestyle resort The Caboolture community will have the opportunity to learn the secrets of decluttering and downsizing at a free workshop to be hosted at Living Gems Caboolture Riverfront on Wednesday, May 15. Motivational speaker, author and interior designer Tanya Lewis, the Eco Organiser, will share her knowledge at the hour-long ‘Declutter your life’ workshop. Attendees will learn how to ethically declutter, how to identify clutter and how to downsize and live life well – all the while saving money.

Ms Lewis says the audience will be encouraged to rethink their relationship with clutter in order to live richer, happier lives. “I will cover topics such as how to honour and respect your treasures, how to save money and energy, and how to let go of ‘stuff’,” she said. Guests will be treated to a delicious morning tea and there will be eight display homes open for viewing, along with the opportunity to tour the resort’s award-winning Country Club and some of its many recreational activities, such as the golf simulator or ten-pin bowling alley.

From the churches How to impress God Here is the strange paradox of Christianity: we cannot impress God. In his famous parable of the Good Samaritan, Jesus makes an outcast who showed compassion to a stranger the hero. We miss that it also cost the outcast a fair deal of money and inconvenience to help. Jesus then says go and keep doing likewise. In other words Jesus is saying if we want to live God’s way and impress him we have to be like the Good Samaritan 24/7- a responsibility which is impossible! So if we can’t impress God by our actions, how do we impress God? The Bible makes it clear that God is impressed with us not by what we have done or do but by who knows us. Jesus said elsewhere “my sheep hear my voice, and I know them�. According to Jesus, God is only impressed with me because of who knows me – the Lord Jesus. In a few weeks I am off to England. Naturally

a visit to Buckingham Palace is on the cards. While I am there I am planning to knock on her Majesty’s door and ask to be let in. I am sure the guard will ask: “Why should we let you in?� What am I going to say? “I paid my taxes? I am a big fan? I have obeyed the laws of the country?� None of them will work. Along comes Prince Charles and says to me: “Chris it’s good to see you. Please come in and make yourself at home.� I am welcomed in not because of what I have done but by who knows me. That’s what Christianity is all about. It’s not a matter of what we have done but who knows us and because Jesus knows us, God is impressed. GLASSHOUSE COUNTRY

You Said It Electricity price

We’re hearing a lot about the price of electricity. Our federal MPs Wallace and O’Brien want the supposedly cheaper coal. It’s not cheaper even without adding on the impacts. Their plan will produce global warming of around three degrees. Heat, drought, floods, rising ocean levels, emergency services, health – these things don’t warrant a mention. In NSW, privatised electricity makes profits for corporations that have their money off shore and pay little or no tax. Queensland has not privatised electricity so the profits come back to fund education and health. We don’t need corporations draining away the profits of our small businesses. We need efficient accountable publicly owned bureaucracies running our schools, hospitals, biosecurity, prisons, law and order. We need to make society more equal, not keep on privileging the big end of town. Gillian Pechey Maleny

Tilt train outages

On April 4 the Rockhampton bound tilt train was subjected to a lengthy disruption of its schedule. The train was held at Caboolture with passengers being informed that a tree had fallen across rail power lines between Caboolture and Nambour, and because repair crew were not permitted to work in the rain the length of the delay could not be determined. Details of this delay were posted on the QR website. Buses were organised to take passengers and others waiting at intermediate stations to Nambour, where the southbound tilt train had terminated and was rerouted north. The majority of passengers on both trains were elderly and the incident caused much confusion and stress to these people. Now one might ask how the service could be disrupted by a falling tree. Surely on such a major rail corridor, trackside maintenance procedures would be in place to make such an event impossible. A tree falling on to a passing high speed train would be catastrophic. But this appears not to be an isolated event and power outages on the tilt train services are not uncommon. So rather than admit to technical shortcomings with the trains, is QR resorting to blaming nature, or passing the buck to its maintenance staff for not clearing vegetation? Commuters deserve some honest answers. G Bradford Maleny

Residential density

Re Diana Michael’s comments in GC&M News (March 23) on Sunshine Coast Council’s approval of multi-unit residential development in a medium density zone in excess of that specified as allowable in the town plan. I am glad to see that someone else has realised that what council has approved in the past and is still currently approving contravenes the town plan regulations. These regulations are quite specific but developers in the residential multi-unit construction game are ignoring these regulations and lodging applications for residences in excess of the residential density permitted by the regulations and these are still being approved by council at this excess level. I have taken this a little further when I emailed council on March 5 pointing out that I believed they had received MCU19/0026 and were considering this application but any approval would be unlawful as the application exceeded the density code regulations specified in the town plan. No reply has yet been received. I have previously had correspondence with council on a similar matter when I lodged a complaint about their approval of MCU17/2161 to which a reply was received, which concluded by stating they “now considered the matter closed”. I am at a stage where some assistance would be appreciated, preferably from an experienced independent retired town planner or similar professional who could provide some ideas on the options/procedures open to me if I pursue this matter further and in general their advice/ thoughts on these types of approvals.

Slap some meat on the barbie

Over the years we have had many different groups seeking media attention from the greenies, boat people, gay rights and now we have vegans. The vegans think they can break the law by entering premises and chaining each other to gates, rails and disrupting people’s lives and businesses. If the truth be known none of these protestors probably have jobs or they are on the dole. The farmers of this great country are doing it tough as it is without having to put up with this BS.

Mothers beware

Elections are looming, politicians are on the prowl. Mothers beware - your baby may be unexpectedly plucked from its pram and kissed. At present the main function of politicians seems to be promising how much money they will lavish upon us. It's disappointing to hear them call each other liars. I would prefer they promise to have decency, morality, honesty and to keep their promises. Ian Pollock Witta

Re: What price for ANZAC Day

First, my sincere thanks to the many Division 1 RSL sub branches that are preparing for the 2019 ANZAC Day services. I hope that many members of our community can turn out to honour this solemn day of remembrance. I have asked the council to provide a formal reply to Brian Machin (GC&M News April 3) but I think it’s important for readers to also be informed on how the system works. Not-for-profit community groups do not pay council for permits or traffic management – there is no charge! However, as you would expect for public safety reasons the council has always required traffic management to be in place in order to issue a permit. Prior to 2018, the Queensland Police Service provided traffic management at ANZAC Day events (at no cost). Since that arrangement has ceased, traffic management is now arranged between the community group and a traffic management service provider. Even though council is not directly involved we do provide a grant funding mechanism for groups such as the RSLs to work in advance year by year to gain funding for this type of expense. ANZAC Day services are held across the region and the council is proactive in advising the groups of how to access these grants. Rick Baberowski Division 1 councillor Sunshine Coast Council

Adani coal mine

You’ve probably heard by now about the Carmichael coal mine project that is being proposed by Adani Mining and the amount of uproar surrounding the situation. Only yesterday I was driving through Maleny and witnessed seven houses with the #StopAdani signage. There were even a handful of businesses who had made it their duty to raise awareness surrounding the proposal. I agree that this particular proposal should be denied by all levels of government but perhaps not for the reasons that you may think. Putting aside the environmental issues for just a moment, I would like to explore the subject of foreign ownership. I should preface this by saying that I absolutely believe that direct foreign investment in Australia is necessary and should be encouraged in most sectors of the economy. However, when it comes to the foreign ownership of our natural resources, I believe that an Australia first policy should be adopted. We should not be so short sighted as to lease our precious land and resources to the highest bidder. Many foreign companies, that can often be highly corrupt and undemocratic, lobby gluttonous politicians and promise an undeliverable amount of new jobs to help boost our economy. In reality, many of the promises made by prospecting companies are simply unachievable, particularly when new jobs are filled by workers with migrant visas. This income is typically sent overseas to their homeland as opposed to being reinvested in our local community. Going forward, I believe that local residents should continue to be vocal about issues they feel passionate about and that elected politicians should be cheerleaders for their constituents, rather than foreign corporations. James Grimard Mount Mellum

Book sale benefits farmers

The Friends of Maleny Library’s April book sale in aid of Queensland farmers was our best book sale ever thanks to the wonderful support of our local community. People donated good quality books for us to sell, others purchased books and some just gave a monetary donation. So a very big thank you from us. We would also like to thank our Division 5 councillor, Jenny McKay and the Sunshine Coast Council for supporting the initiative and allowing us to redirect the funds raised, which are usually used to enhance our Maleny library and its programs. In total we donated $1,380 to our Queensland farmers via Blaze Aid - a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Working alongside the rural families, the volunteers help to rebuild fences and other structures that have been damaged or destroyed, lift the spirits of individuals and families who are often facing their second or third flood event after years of drought or devastating losses through bushfires, and help rebuild the local communities. Blaze Aid currently has camps in Richmond, Cloncurry, Winton and Julia Creek. Thanks again. Jill Cutting on behalf of the Friends of Maleny Library

Re: Fundraiser for RSL launched

Congratulations on a fine letter from Sharon Bochow (GC&M News April 10) outlining the demise of the Beerwah RSL Club. My wife and I moved here nearly 11 years ago. We selected Beerwah because it had a new shopping centre, a fine hotel and great little RSL club, not to mention the train and a lovely golf course. We took all friends who visited us on a trip to the RSL for meals and a play on the pokies. It was with great sadness to see it close through greed and incompetence. Those members who were responsible for that should have been named and shamed and run out of town on the first available train. It is scary to see those members now interfering in the Glasshouse Country RSL .A shudder has just run up my spine. Trevor Brimelow Beerwah

Chances blown

I think Bill Shorten has blown his chances of becoming Prime Minister. He has just shown that to win Greens preferences he will make young families of Australia give up their comfortable, roomy 4WDs for cramped little electricity gobbling boxes on wheels just at the time when their kids are reaching their teen years. Does he intend that people give up, in just 10 years, the dream of family car-travel holidays or camping trips that Australians have come to love? What about grey nomads who go exploring Australia on caravan trips of their lifetime? And what if something malfunctions and the car battery goes flat way out in the back blocks? He should know what travel in outback Australia means. Hasn’t he spent time at his in-law’s property in western Queensland? His illconsidered plans will make isolated places more isolated. Imagine needing a charging station in a desert. At least we could carry spare fuel for a petrol car! Property owners would have to purchase expensive individual chargers to keep their cars on the road. We have heard no plan as to how the network of chargers would be established all around the country to replicate the thousands of petrol/ diesel stations we currently rely on. What of the huge increase in demand for electricity and the cost of the network to service such a huge increase? Does he think about people who would risk huge electricity bills and nightly blackouts as timepoor drivers resort to home charger top-ups? The Greens have some scary way-out policies, including one which encourages animal activists’ farm invasions and aims at “phasing out of all intensive animal farming practices”. Labor leader Shorten, unable to withstand the Greens pressures, is holding the bull by the tail. Olive Hockings Maleny

Not new science

The You Said It pages in GC&M News, February 27, had a number of responses to Jon Woodlands' mention of solar cooling. It may interest readers to know that this is not new science and many in the field have been

predicting it since 2011. It’s not from "peculiar" or "dodgy" websites either. John L Casey was head of the Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC), a climate research organisation, and formally a senior field engineer in NASA's space shuttle program. He's a leading researcher on the science of solar activity cycles and their impacts on climate change. He wrote a US best seller, ‘Dark Winter’ that explains the coming cooling cycle. Professor Ivanka Charvátová CSc, of the Czech Science Academy's Geophysical Institute, put forward her work on solar inertial motion (SIM) claiming it has a serious impact on Earth's climate. She says a predictable "wobble" of our Sun called the barycentre shift alters Earth's weather patterns. Few climatologists yet acknowledge this phenomenon (the barycentre is the centre of mass of two bodies orbiting one another). This barycentre shift cycle repeats about every 175-180 years. Previous shifts occurred in 1630s and 1810s and impacted world temperatures. We are now in the midst of another, beginning from about 2011 and she says we are in for a prolonged cooling cycle that could last beyond 2050. I also have a list of 34 published solar science authors in leading journals (no space for their names) from China, Russia, the USA, Canada, Japan and other countries who make clear predictions that the planet is in for a 30-45-year mini cool age or temperature minimum period soon. NASA acknowledges it, but says it has no effect on warming. The massive deep freezes in the northern hemisphere lately with record breaking cold may be a signal of its starting. We await further news. Richard Giles Conondale

Acknowledgement due

We totally agree with Sharon Bochow’s comments re Beerwah and District RSL (GC&M News, April 10). We would like to confirm that our Dad and his mates were not foundation members of Beerwah and District RSL but in fact of the Beerwah Peachester Sub Branch. It's a pity the Beerwah and District Sub Branch didn't acknowledge their important ground work in 2011 as they left a great legacy by donating land for the golf club as well as the ambulance and fire stations not to mention a great building asset and house returning just less than $20,000 each month. At the time both the sub branch and the citizens where in a good financial position. They kicked the citizens out of the club and now they want their support to raise $30,000. We pleaded with the sub branch to fulfil foundation members’ wishes to leave it as it was but to no avail. Let's not forget the work the women's auxiliary put into it and to see it all gone. We would like to acknowledge the work our Dad, Mum and their great mates put in to establish the club. Peter and Robert Barry Beerwah 27

Hinterland Kids Peachester rides to School Little Kickers Landsborough Contributed by Kate Burnett Peachester footpaths welcomed all manner of wheels on National Ride2School Day recently. A record 64 of the 108 students strapped helmets on and biked, scooted or rollerbladed to Peachester State School. The nationwide initiative encourages children to take a more active approach to the daily commute. Those who live close by had the chance to ride with friends, while those who live further away were able to join the fun by meeting at locations close to the school. An enthusiastic team of 35 adult volunteers ensured safety at road crossings and encouraged the children along the way. A big thank you to the Sunshine Coast Council and Travel Smart Sunshine Coast for sponsoring this great event. Sonny and Connor riding into school

Little Kickers Sunshine Coast is a weekly kids’ soccer program that has been specially developed for children aged 2-7 years. Coached by “director of fun” Alex Ollier, classes are held every Saturday morning at Landsborough State School. Alex said the program was one of the only sportsbased team activities offered for children under five in the area and was a great way for kids to have the chance to have fun, socialise with others and learn the game of soccer in an encouraging environment. “It’s a great introduction to sport as well as a fantastic way to introduce young kids to a team environment. Our program is inclusive and caters for all ability levels and needs as well as social skills. It’s also a good way for parents to meet other local parents,” Alex said. Three 45-minute classes are offered with no

more than 16 participants per class. Mega Kickers is at 8am (ages 5-7), Junior Kickers at 9am (ages 2-3½) and Mighty Kickers at 10am (3½-5 years). The program runs all year round so kids can join at any time during the year and a free trial is available. To find out more, call Alex on 0458 782 922 or check out the Little Kickers Sunshine Coast Facebook page.

Time for the little kids at the library

When the big kids are back at school next week the regular free story time and rhyme time sessions for the little kids will restart at our local libraries. Rhyme time features songs, rhymes and finger plays to promote early literacy and language development for infants aged up to two years. These sessions are on at Beerwah Library on Thursday at 10.30-11am and at Maleny Library on Friday at 9.30-10am.

Story time features stories, rhymes and songs to enhance language development for children aged between 2-5 years. The first half of all sessions comprises stories and songs with the second half an interactive activity. The weekly sessions are on at Beerwah on Tuesday at 10.30-11.30am and at Maleny on Thursday at 9.30-10.30am. Attendance at all of these sessions is free and no registration is required. Just head along to the library before the starting times to join in.

Early learning language program on offer As part of Glasshouse Mountains Early Education Centre’s commitment to early childhood learning, the centre offers children in the school ready room (kindergarten) the opportunity to learn Italian. This wonderful initiative is part of the Early Learning Languages Australia (ELLA) program and stems from the Australian Government's pledge to support language study. ELLA is a fun digital, play-based program that includes a series of interactive applications (apps) aimed at making language learning engaging to pre-schoolers. A national roll out of the program to eligible pre-school services began in 2017 with languages such as Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), French, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, modern Greek and Hindi on offer. More than 2,500 pre-schools across the country have now implemented the program.

Glasshouse Country & Maleny News

Last year the centre offered French as the language of choice and this year the school readiness children are using the ELLA program to explore Italian. The centre’s early childhood teacher, Emma Coultis, explained that the children are given the opportunity to explore ELLA language apps on tablets for 10-15 minutes at a time. Through this, they also learn to share and take turns, as well as the valuable lessons they learn through the games on the app. “The apps introduce children to the Polyglots who introduce children to the magic of a new language through digital play. The apps games and experiences have been developed specially to match young children’s interests in areas like cooking, art, building, role-play and music - so the apps keep children engaged through their learning,” Emma said. “I find that the children are always eager to explore these programs and cannot wait to have their turns throughout the week.”

This initiative inspires children by driving a genuine interest in a new language and culture. The program has been strongly supported by the federal Department of Education and Training. In the 2018-19 budget, the government committed an additional $11.8 million to further develop the successful ELLA program.

A key goal of the ELLA program is to provide young children with exposure to language learning in the early years so they will be more likely to continue learning languages in the later years of schooling. The numerous benefits to learning languages have been well documented and the earlier children are able to immerse themselves the better. In many states and territories, formal language training with trained languages teachers is not available until year 3 and the ELLA program aims to address this gap.

Glasshouse Mountains Early Education Centre offers a quality driven kindergarten program to help children be school ready. With the added convenience of providing long day care hours if required, both working and at home parents may be eligible for the government funded kindergarten program subsidy offered through the centre. To find out more or for an obligation free tour of the centre, please call 5438 7311, or call in to 2 Page Street, Glass House Mountains (no appointment necessary).

Introducing Bernette Ledger

I am a Chinese medicine practitioner who started on this path in 1994 when I was introduced to the discipline by my uncle who was an acupuncturist. I saw an opportunity to promote wellbeing for myself, family, friends and the greater community. Chinese medicine has become a lifetime fascination for me. It enables me to constantly learn and develop my skills from the huge collection of information collected over centuries. My qualifications include a Bachelor of Health Science (acupuncture). I use moxibustion, cupping, Chinese herbs, visible red spectrum laser therapy, Chinese exercise therapy, auricular acupuncture and Si Yuan style balance acupuncture. I have had the pleasure of meeting and treating a wide cross section of the community ranging from able bodied wishing to maintain health and wellbeing, the worried well, mentally ill, developmentally disabled, chronically ill and people in palliative care. As such I have been blessed to be able to interact with my community and have a positive effect on the wellbeing of so many lovely people. It is truly a profession worth doing. I am very fortunate to have found such a wonderful community to work in.

Out & About On air …

The sign lights up on stage and the actors are off in a funny, nostalgic but abrasive window into the radio drama of the 1940s and the off-air drama of a couple of mismatched radio stars. Australian comedy luminary Michael Veitch teamed with actor Simon Oats to write and perform ‘Mystery in the Air’, Maleny Arts Council’s first production in their 2019 series. The consensus of the audience was “hilarious” and many of them joined the stars on the Deck of the Community Centre after the show for drinks, nibbles and chats.

The title of this film refers to the Children Act 1989, a UK Act of Parliament designed to protect the welfare of minors by court intervention. In this particular case, a High Court judge, played by Emma Thompson, must decide whether to go against the wishes of a 17-year-old and his parents to allow a life-saving blood transfusion. The almost 18-year-old Adam is suffering from leukaemia but he and his parents are Jehovah's Witnesses who believe that receiving another's blood is against the will of God. Emma Thompson, not surprisingly, gives a powerful performance in which she, while struggling with a marital crisis, has to make this terrible decision - whether to uphold the religious beliefs of the trio and allow the boy to die or to intervene and save his life. The film examines issues of family, religion, marriage and the law and how they can intersect in ways that call into question assumptions on which our lives are based. Stanley Tucci gives a remarkable performance as the judge's husband. Based on a novel by Ian McEwan (‘Atonement’, ‘On Chesil Beach’), who also wrote the screenplay, this is a story which will involve the audience in profound moral and ethical dilemmas.

In the Garden One of the joys of being a gardener is that there’s always something new to learn. One of the best ways to learn is to hear, experience and see things from a different perspective. Two great opportunities for gardeners – new and old – are happening soon to kick start the old grey matter with something new and interesting. So put these two wonderful events in your ‘must do’ diary.

Gympie Garden Expo

I reckon there will be something for every gardener at this year’s Gympie Garden Expo on Saturday-Sunday, April 27-28. Once again this annual event promises to shine with great open gardens, informative talks, the ever popular plant clinic and market stalls offering plants, art and craft, and a myriad of garden accessories for the home gardener. Garden Expo visitors are in for a real treat with acclaimed chef Matt Golinski cooking some surprising plants straight from the garden. Gardening guru Paul Plant will be on hand to share the simplicity of growing edible subtropical plants as well as showing how to find a good buy when plant shopping. Zela Bissett will be sharing her passion for local, seasonal and indigenous food suited to our climate that can be easily grown in our home gardens and used as alternative ingredients in many recipes. Over the weekend, workshops on how to identify orchids and get them thriving will be answered by orchid devotee Jim Evans and Faye Dobson will have all your bonsai questions covered.

Living on the hedge

with Spencer and Karen Shaw

Hedges are a useful and attractive way to define boundaries, provide privacy and scenic amenity, and are great for wildlife. What we tend to think of as a traditional hedge is to plant one of the same tough, readily pruned, bushy to the ground species that is basically a living fence and not much more than that. However, this is a relatively recent invention of our production line landscaping and the hedges of old contained a diverse range of species and resources for both humans and wildlife. Some of the great local plants for creating hedges include most of our lilly pillies and myrtles such as creek lilly pilly (Acmena smithii), blue lilly pilly (Syzygium oleosum), silky myrtle (Decaspermum humile), dotted myrtle (Gossia punctata), plum myrtle (Pilidiostigma glabrum) and dwarf forms of scrub cherry (Syzygium australe) but there are so many more! Common aspen (Acronychia oblongifolia), muttonwood (Myrsine variabilis), white alder (Callicoma serratifolia), blueberry ash (Elaeocarpus reticulatus), velvet leaf (Callicarpa pedunculata) and sweet pittosporum (Pittosporum undulatum) just for starters. If you want prickles to keep things in or out, then you just can’t go past orange boxthorn (Pittosporum multiflorum) or you can try native holly (Alchornea ilicifolia), native capers (Capparis spinosa) and native currant (Carissa ovata). Hedge plants are great for you and the environment, so don’t beat around the bush and get hedging.


Back by popular demand, is Dr Tobias Smith who will give detailed presentations on the fascinating world of native bees. Tobias's research interests are focused mainly on bee communities in urban landscapes and on the use of native bees as pollinators of crops. Compost Corner on Sunday will focus on sustainability with permaculture displays and tips on native gardens and land rehabilitation. Gates are open from 8am- 4pm on Saturday and 8am–3pm on Sunday. Admission is $5 each day with children and parking free.

Botanic Garden Day

If you haven’t already decided how to spend Botanic Garden Day on Sunday, May 26 you could head to the Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Garden at Tanawha. While I do realise it is still a little while away, I just wanted to flag it with you as I am planning to head to the garden for the morning. The theme for the day is Natives Naturally - Small is Beautiful and there is a program of activities planned from 8am–12noon. There will be guided walks as well as talks, or register for what should be fun and engaging workshops, see the many amazing displays on offer and get some expert advice. There are heaps of garden ideas and you will be able to purchase plants on site. Gardening Australia’s Jerry Coleby-Williams will be presenting a public lecture on the 21st century cottage garden from 9–10am and again from 11am–12noon. The cost is $10 per person plus registration fee and includes a free plant. With the right advice and the right plants, you can build biodiversity in backyards and on balconies. To register for the event go to the Eventbrite website and search Natives Naturally – Small is Beautiful.

Sport Touch challenge Contributed by Bluey Robertson For the past eight years the Glasshouse and Maleny Touch Football Associations have played each other’s two best teams. This year the games were played by Ross Meneely Builders for Maleny and the Erections for Glasshouse with Maleny taking out the win. In the cup played by the competition’s runners up, Westos represented Maleny playing against No Styles from Glasshouse. This time Glasshouse won. It was a great night and thanks to all the players and refs.

The winners were Ross Meneely builders

The runners up playoff winners the No Styles

Witta Tennis

Contributed by Pauline Fraley Witta Wompoos had a close match against Gympie Silver on Sunday in the Sunshine Coast Tennis Veterans competition under blue skies. After slumping to three sets down after the mixed and men’s doubles, the team rallied with sets tied after the ladies’ doubles and again before going into the final two mixed doubles games. Steady, strategic tennis saw the combinations of Denis O'Neil and Donna Kuskopf and Paula and Jim Cudmore secure a win for Witta with 7 sets 56 games to 5 sets 53 games. Thanks to Noel George who capably filled in for the injured, Bob Eather. Thanks also to our opponents for an enjoyable afternoon's tennis. Social tennis is played on Mondays at 8am and Saturdays at 1pm. All welcome. Court bookings: 0437 295 501 or

Glasshouse Country Bowls Club Contributed by David Hayes

Saturday, April 6: The second semi-final in the ladies championship A singles was played with Millie Freshwater defeated Di Garland 25-18. Millie will take on Di Hume in the final this week. Well done to our junior member Jack Chirgwin who along with his partner Todd Brain won the silver medal in the state under 15 pairs championships last week. They lost the gold medal match 21-12 but still get to walk away with a medal. Great job boys. In the open under 18s gold medal triples match at Caloundra, Ty Jesburg, John Hammond and Jake Rynne defeated Jack Chirgwin, Chloe Runge and Zayah Morgan 25-9. Another silver medal for two of our juniors. The team they were playing were a bit older and more experienced. Well done everyone.

Maleny Bowls Club Contributed by Miles Allen At the monthly pair’s competition at Mapleton, Jim King and Ray Elmore played so well that they won the big prize against some very experienced opponents. It was Ray’s first away game for the club and his first time on grass, and with the guidance and support of his skip, he excelled. Our Tuesday get-together resulted in Doug McGuffiche, Brett Gillis and Richard Bond taking the honours with the runners up being Curley Peterson and Ray Elmore. A team of four led by Joe Walters went to Kilcoy and showed our hosts that as a club, we have some very promising up-and-coming bowlers ready to step up to the mat and represent us against some of the best players in the region. Twilight bowls: There were 33 bowlers including some new players on Wednesday night with the rain trying hard to keep them off the green but it takes more than a few showers to deter these bowlers. We were able to play under our new lights for the first time and they lit the green to perfection. There can be no more excuses about not being able to see the jack! The Outlaws easily stole the game from the Krackerjacks. The Handles opened the scores early thanks to Roy Gesch's precision and the finishing ability of Ray Elmore. The Bridge Club made a late start and came from behind to narrowly beat the Musketeers. The Mavericks beat a rusty Dennis Kyling and his Misfits. And the Tutors gave a lesson in skill to the Mighty 10s.Touchers for the night were Paul Kemp again (who withstood a challenge from the umpires), Ian Chatterton and Judith Lees. Scroungers on Friday: This a popular event and the winners were Ian Dickson who held his own under pressure, Mike Edwards who won for the first time, Kay Gesch who was on top with unbeatable form, Richard Bond who took on two very shrewd and skilled bowlers and beat them, Dan Peterson who convincingly challenged the handicapper and our secretary Jim Wiedman who wrote himself into the winners' circle. Another week of bowls at Maleny Bowls Club finished on a high note when Fay Peterson pulled her own number out of the bag and won the big prize.

Sport Judo is his game Glass House Mountains judo champion Ben Lewis (pictured) recently returned from the Queensland State Judo Championships, held on the Gold Coast, with a gold medal around his neck. Ben, a multiple state and national title holder, this year fought in a newly created category for athletes with limitations. Coming up against larger and stronger contestants, Ben used his intuitive understanding of the mechanics of judo to win on skill, utilising the strength of his opponents against them. As a member of the Maleny Judo Club, Ben has grown in competence over the years, holding a brown belt in judo and will soon take his grading towards gaining his black belt. Next on Ben’s hit list is taking out the Judo Australia National Championship to be held in June at the Gold Coast.

Easy Find Classifieds Beerwah Ladies Golf Club Contributed by Brenda Briese What a difference a month makes! With the past few weeks of showers the golf course is in great condition. While we may have missed a few rounds due to the wet, it's certainly been worth it. And the dams are all full so it looks like a good situation going into winter. Saturday, April 6 we played a monthly medal with 20 players. The winner was Jo Malone on 73 nett followed by Hope Hannah 75 nett. NTPs: 5 - Karen Gannon, 16 - Jo Malone, 18 - (second shot) Tam Reid. Putting - Hope Hannah and Desley Neilson both 27 putts. BRDs went to 78 nett. Thursday, April 11 we played another monthly medal with only 37 ladies. The division 1 winner was Cathy Stone 76 nett on a count back from Jo Malone. The gross winner was Sonia Kenway. In division 2 the winner was Leith Barnes on 78 nett and the runner up was Lesley Eggleston on 79 nett. The gross winner was Fay Barry. In division 3 the winner was Bridget John on 80 nett from Rose Ballard on 85 nett and the gross winner was Jackie Collinson on 119. Putting - Cathy Stone 27 putts.

The Range Croquet Club

Contributed by Ken Barker The new sail provided by the Rotary Club proved a great success, arriving just in time for the Sunshine Coast Regional Championships held at our lawns last Tuesday and Wednesday. It was and will be greatly appreciated by the players and visitors. There was a lot of fun on the lawns on Sunday, April 6. Conditions were perfect as autumn appears to have arrived. On lawn two Nick Cram and Ken Barker fought to a virtual draw with Ken coming out slightly ahead 14–13. Helen Andrews and Frances Harper played well on the same lawn to defeat Sarah Widin and Stuart Craig 12–0. Meanwhile on lawn one Garry and Brenda Winter played Wallace Roy in a six-ball game of golf where the final scores ended up at 1, 4 and 7 in that order. Well done Wallace. At the regional championships, second division association championships were held on our lawns with three of our players competing. Vince Carbery, Nick and Ken competed with some good games. Nick pegged out against Theo Kleiberg. However, the championship was won by Bill Habner from Noosa in a very good final against George Oliver from Coolum 26-16. It was the best game of the tournament and could have gone either way. Many thanks to Sarah Widin and Wallace Roy for their work preparing the grounds beforehand and to all of those people who came down and helped in the clubhouse and kitchen for the event. Thanks also to Val Carbery who refereed throughout and to Donna Manning who was instrumental in the organisation of the tournament and who refereed on Tuesday. Coaching for beginners and others is available on the picturesque lawns at the bottom of the Maleny Showgrounds from 8-10 am on Saturdays. These are popular sessions in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Playing times have now reverted to the earlier start time of 1pm for games to begin at 1.30pm on Thursdays and Sundays.

Just for Laughs Easter jokes to crack you up

ARIES March 21 - April 20 This week you should rely just on yourself. The circumstances surrounding the Full Moon by the weekend may really test the security of a relationship. Sometimes another personality appears within your partner and it might add to an ongoing unsatisfied restlessness. However, with Venus entering your sign, new horizons shine forth. TAURUS April 21 – May 21 The Full Moon in Libra brings private matters relating to an ongoing health dynamic into a sudden light. So, the Easter holiday period says you are not to burn the candle at both ends but to give your blood pressure a chance to settle down. The weekend also sees the start of Taurean birthdays. Schedule good friends for lunch dates. GEMINI May 22 - June 23 As there is a Full Moon over the weekend you will see extreme reactions and very black and white emotions taking place in relationships. If you see areas where stubbornness prevails make a note not to be involved in relationships with those that have no compassion. Plans may be altered due to amazing surprises now. CANCER June 24 - July 22 The Easter holiday weekend sees the period starting with Taurean birthdays. The Full Moon sets off a balancing act with the planet Venus entering Aries for you to accent your own social networking. However, with Venus your friends have other ideas! Follow your intuitive or psychic pathway due to a sudden turn of a friend’s behaviour.


Week Beginning 17/04/2019

A hot cross bunny. What do you call ten rabbits marching backwards? A receding hare-line. What happened when the Easter Bunny caught his head in the fan? It took ears off his life! Where does the Easter Bunny go when he needs a new tail? To a re-tail store! Why are people always tired in April? Because they just finished a march. What is the end of Easter? The letter R.

with Edgar J. Winter

LEO July 23 – August 22 Alternative plans arrive over the Easter weekend so this Full Moon in the air sign of Libra could give you a sense of uncertainty or instability. As everything reaches a climax at least it brings a chance to clear the air and make decisions. Change is inevitable so why not just welcome it? Keep a good attitude and an optimistic outlook. VIRGO August 23 – September 22 As your ruling planet Mercury enters the sign of Aries it activates the Full Moon over the Easter holiday season. It brings to a head recent monetary matters, especially those involving others. It’s not necessary to spend emotionally as the Sun sign enters Taurus. Everything moves into practical pursuits that do not suit impulsiveness. LIBRA September 23 - October 22 Going on an out of town trip or another adventure could seem appealing. You will just have to be adaptable as it is not as easy to pull off as you think. Your ruling planet Venus enters Aries, which is your relationship sign. Therefore, for the next month relationships of all sorts become a priority and you try to set your own terms now. SCORPIO October 23 - November 22 The Full Moon over the Easter period sets off recent stresses or differences regarding your work dynamic versus rest. Also, the dynamics of inter-relationships probably have contrary moments due to shifting emotions and needs of other people. Now that the Taurean birthdays enter the picture, suggest you take a shopping jaunt.

SAGITTARIUS November 23 – December 22 The planet Venus gives you a taste for new people, new places and ways to love and show off your social gifts. The colours black and red may appeal to you now. Some of your major responsibilities and obligations slow you down now over the Easter break. The Full Moon brings its whacky, unstable energy to bear on your friends. CAPRICORN December 23 - January 19 Your emotional life with others is seeking balance so this will be a famous weekend for you as the Full Moon over the Easter break brings your emotional energy to a crisis. Recent differences with loved ones or business people may tend to lurch forward awkwardly. Then a quick sudden change in direction sees new ground open for you. AQUARIUS January 20 - February 19 Over the Easter weekend the Full Moon kicks off in the sign of Libra, spotlighting travel, people overseas and a feeling of one door closing and another one opening. You may receive a call from a loved one or a friend having an abrupt development in their life. You will be helpful to tell them it is good to change direction with relationships. PISCES February 20 - March 20 There is a lot of give and take in the Full Moon sign of Libra over this holiday weekend. With Mercury in Aries, together with the Full Moon, look for areas of agreement and join forces with those that harmonise with your own inner nature. You may expect happy purchases or being taken out to a place which is something very special.

What is the Easter Bunny’s favourite kind of music? Hip-hop, of course! What did the Easter Bunny say to the carrot? It’s been nice gnawing you. Why can’t a rabbit’s nose be 12 inches long? Because then it would be a foot! Did you hear about the lady whose house was infested with Easter eggs? She had to call an eggs-terminator! Why do we paint Easter eggs? Because it’s easier than trying to wallpaper them! What do you get if you pour boiling water down a rabbit hole?
