Hi Everyone As you go through the pages this week, you will notice the centre pages are filled with the gorgeous debutantes and their stylish partners. For those of you who don’t know what a Debutante Ball is – I have conferred with Wikipedia and this is what they have to say, “A Debutante is a young lady from an aristocratic family who has reached the age of maturity, and as a new adult, is introduced to society at a formal ‘début’ presentation”. So, I guess, our Glasshouse Country Debutante Ball is a more ‘Aussie’ style event, a little more inclusive and maybe not so much about being just for the ‘Upper Class’ but there for those who want to get involved. No doubt these young girls have gone to plenty of effort for the night and the results are just amazing; I have to say the fellas have also scrubbed up very well and it is great

to see them in their tuxedos. This year is the 17th year we have had a local Debutante Ball and it seems that its popularity is still going strong. So a big thanks and congratulations to the enthusiastic organising committee from the local Anglican Church who bring this special event together each year. Regards,

The Glasshouse Mountains are alive with the Sound of Music


Hidden away behind the cloisters of Glasshouse Country Christian College theatre, rehearsals are frantically underway in earnest for Slice of Life Theatre Arts students and their families. Artistic director, Louise Heinrich, is bringing to life the story of the Von Trapp family singers in the upcoming production of the well-known and much loved Rogers and Hammerstein Musical, 'The Sound of Music'. The production is scheduled to come alive in the last weekend of September and first week of October 2011. The characters of the Von Trapp family singers were cast from students who attend the ‘Slice of Life’ Theatre Arts program. There are two children’s casts; The Vienna and the Salzburg and in keeping with the Von Trapp Family storyline talented and experienced family and tutors connected with the Slice of Life Theatre and the College will be making up adult cast. Ian Rix, the college vocal tutor will play the role of Captain Von Trapp. In the role of Maria is talented and gifted Carly Hampson, who graduated from Beerwah High school a couple of years ago and has since completed a year-long internship with Brisbane based Harvest Rain Theatre Company. Carly's father, Brad, has been a manual arts teacher at the college for the past eight years.

Another successful Glasshouse Trail Run




Clear skies and cool temperatures helped course records fall at the Glasshouse 100 last weekend. In fact, four runners went under the previous 100 mile race record with the new record now standing at 15h 38m. Glass House Mountains runner Bill Thompson, 68, may not have been near the front runners but he achieved the impressive goal of now completing his 11th 100 mile event in a time of 29hrs 40min. “I had a schedule and I stuck to it pretty well,” Bill said. “Highlights were cruising along in the moonlight around midnight at about the 100km mark without using lights and listening to The Quartet from Verdi’s Rigoletto. Also seeing all the fairy lights just before dawn at checkpoint 10, knowing that my wife was there to encourage me onwards.” Understandably Bill said he felt pretty weary when he crossed the finishing line. “The last 12 hours were a bit of a struggle you might say, but experience saw me through, I knew I could pull through. I was feeling reasonably good towards the end.” After the race, not only was Bill presented with his 11th ‘Mountains’ T-shirt he also received his ‘1,000 mile’ T-shirt. For Bill it’s exciting knowing that if he runs next year, he will have completed all 12 possible ‘Glass House Mountains’ during the 100 mile races. “I will have to try, won’t I?” he said. Fellow Glass House Mountains runner, Brett Standring, 38, also achieved his goal of completing the 100 mile run in under 24 hours in only his second attempt at this distance.

Gman volunteers at checkpoint 10 “I was able to run better than last year, having that previous experience helped,” he said. “My favourite moment was when my wife and kids ran with me at one of the checkpoints for a couple of hundred metres for moral support.” Ian Javes, Glasshouse Trail Runs race director, is the man who brought the event to the area in 1990, and the very first 100 mile race ever run in Australia in 1996. “This year we had 265 starting five different races, 68 started the 100 mile race, a record number. Most of the runners enjoyed the conditions; with the windy weather it was cooler than normal,” said Ian. Why does Ian think the event is so successful each year? “Being a runner myself I know what the runners want and I think that helps a lot, I can cater to their needs. The biggest challenge each year is getting enough volunteers to man all the checkpoints. It’s not easy, you’re asking some of these people to be out there all night to help the runners.” Ian says there is definitely one thing that makes all that work worth it. “Seeing the joy that some people get from achieving a challenge like doing a 100 miles,” he said.

Coochin Creek Fruitgrowers Co-op Celebrates 75th Anniversary

To commemorate this remarkable milestone, customers will receive a 7.5 per cent discount off a range of products including home/garden, hardware, domestic irrigation, electrical and tools (not including Shell Shop) from Monday, September 26 to Friday, September 30. The Coochin Creek Fruitgrowers Co-operative was founded in 1936 by 19 farmers. It has remained wholly and solely owned by the shareholders and is not part of a large corporate identity. It continues to provide shareholders and the general public access to a large range of products at competitive prices. Robert Frizzo, current Chairman of the Board of Directors believes the Co-op has stood the test of time because of its service to shareholders and customers. “All our decisions are based around looking after the shareholders and producing products at the right price. We originally started out servicing the farming community and now include members of the public,” he said. In some cases, three generations have been involved with the Co-op as shareholders. “There is history within the community with this Co-op being a part of it and serving the community. So that’s what’s different about our business, that’s why we’re still here,” Robert said. “Another thing that has contributed to the

success of this Co-op is the farmers who have served on the board, from some of the oldest families in Beerwah. They put in lot of time and effort. We’re very fortunate to have the founding fathers who had the wisdom and foresight to be able to do everything they did,” he said. This has included diversifying the business as the farmers needs have diversified. Today the Co-op has over 600 shareholders. It is one of the largest employers in the area with 20 fulltime staff plus casuals. Errol Graham, Manager, said it hit home last week how long the business has been here when a customer recently mentioned how he used to ride a horse to the Co-op in 1936. From customers riding horses in to checking our product range on our website - how fast things change. Happy anniversary!

They were married in England in 1961 and emigrated to Australia a few years later, but it wasn’t until last year that they officially became Aussies. Fortunately, when they made the journey across to this side of the world, they brought with them the knife they used to cut their wedding cake, which was brought out to do the honours for their Golden Wedding cake. Ann said they loved the gift they received from their family which was one of their wedding photos printed on a canvas, the same photo was also included on top of their cake. Congratulations Colin and Ann and here’s to many more good years.

Landsborough ceramicist, Johanna De Maine, has had one of her works of art acquired by the Parliament House Art Collection, thanks to a recommendation from Member for Fisher, Peter Slipper. Johanna who specialises in fine porcelain featuring gold leaf, has had her vase ‘Bountiful Harvest’ selected under the acquisitions category for works below $2,000. “It is wonderful for a work of art from the Sunshine Coast hinterland to be acquired for the Collection and recognised and honoured in this way,” Mr Slipper said. Her works already feature in the collections of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Crown Prince Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark, and of the Governor General, and they’re also in the National Gallery of Australia, the Queensland Art Gallery, and in many regional art galleries across Australia. This latest announcement that she will now also feature in the Parliament House Art Collection at Canberra is another great achievement.

Ms De Maine has always been inspired by her local area, especially the Glasshouse Mountains, which are depicted in this delightful work of porcelain, lustre, gold and enamel. ‘Bountiful Harvest’ sums up the natural fruits of the Sunshine Coast region, the rich yielding landscape and the abundance of wildlife bountiful in many ways. Jane Caraffi, from Art on Cairncross said, “this is another very fitting accolade for Johanna’s world-class porcelain art because it most definitely fulfils their aim of creating a public collection of significant heritage value.” More of Ms De Maine’s works can be found at Art on Cairncross, near Maleny.

The newest addition to the Cobb and Co, Teamsters Hall of Fame at Glass House Mountains is Derek James born September 7, weighing in at 9lbs 2 oz. Proud dad Steve Ralph has already decided that the size of Derek’s hands look promising for one day taking over the reins.

Talented local films documentary Landsborough resident De GreerYindimincarlie is already well-known for her amazing creations as an artist, but did you know she is also a talented musician, producer and photographer? De’s latest project was filming the documentary The Bunya Guitar. The documentary follows the life of a Maton guitar made from the Bunya Tree, which is indigenous to South East Queensland. The Bunya tree is a sacred Aboriginal tree that initiated The Bunya Dreaming festival at Lake Baroon. The guitar was donated to the fesitival by Maton, an Australian guitar company. A competition is held each year for a young person 14 years and under to become the guitar’s custodian for 12 months. The documentary follows the journey of the first custodian, Eliza Allard, and the guitar, the album she made with De called ‘Life Goes On’ and their journey together over the 12 months. “I thought it would be an amazing journey to capture on film, as a documentary about the first 12 months of the Bunya Guitars life,” De said. “I was astounded by Eliza’s original song writing, playing, and singing talent.” As any musician knows, your guitar is more than just an instrument and Eliza wasn’t looking forward to the day she had to give it back. The guitar was passed on to the new custodian at the Bunya Dreaming festival early in 2011.

A presentation on behalf of the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service will be given at the Family Barbeque at the Mooloolah Community Hall on Friday, October 7 at 7.00 pm. Carl Trocki, the Volunteer Community Educator for the Eudlo-Mooloolah area, will offer a presentation and discussion on bushfire safety. The presentation will include tips on preparations we can make to ensure our families’ safety should we be faced with a bushfire situation. All are welcome.

De Greer-Yindimincarlie There will be public screenings of The Bunya Guitar during the Kenilworth Celebrates Festival at the The Roxy Cinema, Kenilworth Historical Museum, Alexandra Street, Kenilworth on Sunday, September 25. Screenings at 10.00am, 1.30pm and 3.00pm. Entry is $5.00 per person. There will also be screenings of The Bunya Guitar on the Sunshine Coast in the coming months. De said it wasn’t always easy juggling all the commitments both she and Eliza had over the 15 months it took to make the documentary. “But the end result of the film documentary is worth everything and every experience that was had,” she said.

Ultramarathon runner heading to Glasshouse New Zealand born Andrew Hedgman, 24, admits he was a class clown at school, getting into all sorts of trouble. It was in High School that he discovered his passion in life and the clown became an ultra marathon runner. Andrew said he started ultra marathon running for the challenge. “Completing was such a satisfying feeling, I went on to do others. It’s not really the running, it’s more of the journey because they go for so long and you meet different people along the way and that’s what hooked me into ultra distance running,” he said. His passion has led him to not only completing several marathons and ultra marathons; he has achieved a feat few people have even dreamed of - running the entire length of New Zealand. Last year he completed the 2,200km run in 28 days with only one rest day, averaging around 70 to 80 kilometres per day, enduring shin splints, a torn muscle and bad weather. “There are some times when it seems like it’s just going to be so impossible but because I’ve done it before I know the feeling I get from finishing. It builds me up and gives me a bit more motivation that I can do it. When I finish it’s such a rewarding feeling and that’s what pushes me through,” Andrew said. Currently living in Brisbane, Andrew now has his sights set on the Glasshouse Mountains. On the weekend of September 24 and 25 he will be running 200 kilometres over two days to raise funds for the worldwide group World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), an organisation that helps change the lives of animals from all walks of life including bears,

Dental Excel is proud to be a part of the MARLEY DENTAL GROUP

Andrew Hedgman orangutans, elephants, whales, stray dogs and more. Andrew will cover 100 kilometres on each day, staying in Esk overnight and finishing at the Glasshouse Mountains. He is hoping to raise $2,000. “Thank you all for your donations and your support, I am very proud to be running for WSPA, it is a very awesome cause!” he said. Training for the event has not been without its dramas. He has battled shingles, the flu, been attacked by a magpie which drew blood, injured his foot and been run down by a cyclist. “I am a bit behind schedule but if I have to crawl to the end I will,” Andrew said.

From the Schools

Glasshouse Country Toastmasters and Mooloolah Primary School Contributed by Martine Goedhart

Glasshouse Country Toastmasters recently finished an eight week Youth Leadership Course at the Mooloolah Primary School. It was a real pleasure to teach this dynamic group of 12 Year 7 students. At the graduation night, held in their beautiful new hall, on Wednesday, September 14 they all surprised their family and friends with the progress they’d made in the eight weeks of the course. All the speeches were written by the students themselves and were of excellent quality.

Ashley and Alice They were either informative, hilarious or brought a message to the audience. Students who did not give a speech on the night took on a role as Chairman, Vice Chairman (introducing the speakers), Table Topic Master or Evaluator. They all did a terrific job. Every year the Youth Leadership Co-ordinators are amazed at how quickly the children discover their hidden talents, when guided in the right direction. There was no hesitation to come to the lectern and complete their task, no nerves, if so, they did not show it. We’d like to thank the Mooloolah School for offering this course to their students. To the class of 2011, we wish you all the best in years to come, you’re all winners.

Hinterland Businesses Re-Connect in 2011 Due to popular demand Maleny Commerce is hosting a second ‘Hinterland Connects’ networking night in 2011. Previous events which have been held for the past three years have been hugely successful with over 100 hinterland and coastal businesses connecting to open up valuable business opportunities at each event. President, Stephen Dittmann puts the success of Hinterland Connects down to the fact that local business people are recognising the importance of developing close relationships with other businesses. "There are numerous networking events across the coast, however what sets Hinterland Connects apart from the others is that we encourage coastal businesses to come to the Hinterland to see what we have to offer. In addition to this, we also have organised networking activities, in a relaxed, friendly and intimate atmosphere which many business people find reassuring as usual networking events can sometimes be confronting". This event, which is again supported by Montville and Glasshouse Country Chambers of Commerce, will include a seminar with highly sought after speaker Carren Smith. As a survivor of the 2002 Bali Bombing along with many other challenges which include the suicide of her de-facto and the personal impact of the 2004 Tsunami on her family, Carren’s comprehension value, time, creativity and the meaning of life, charges her presentations with passion, credibility and a deep and genuine commitment to extraordinary achievements for people. Having spoken for groups from 20 to 2000, Carren leaves her audience feeling inspired to take action and make positive changes in their life, their business and in their relationships. Through working with numerous well known companies and thousands of individuals, Carren has developed phenomenal tools for delivering success through, leadership, negotiation, responsibility and productivity enhancement techniques. The next Hinterland Connects networking event will be held at the Big Barrel Maleny from 5.00pm on Tuesday, October 11. For further information on Maleny Commerce and Hinterland Connects visit, email or phone 0434 817 301.

Prep – foundation for the future. A good prep school is vital for a child’s lifelong learning. Glasshouse Country Christian College (GCCC) is a great school that provides the firm foundation a child needs to reach their full potential. GCCC Prep teachers know that every child is unique and develops at different stages so they meet to individually consult with each student and their parents before the prep year begins. The teachers spend time learning about the child as a whole – their strengths, growth areas, likes, dislikes and individual personality. The students enjoy a warm and nurturing environment that helps them develop confidence and independence. The teachers begin the year with play based learning and slowly transition the students so they are ready for the more formal education of Year One. GCCC Preppies enjoy specialist lessons such as music, a foreign language, and physical education as well as the fundamental subjects of reading,

writing and maths. One of the preppies’ favourite learning experiences is in the GCCC Kitchen Garden where they relish the whole 'patch to plate journey'. Students are involved in composting, planting, harvesting, cooking and the best part – eating the produce! Mums and Dads love the flow-on benefits of children willing to eat vegetables and coming home with recipes such as roasted beetroot and vegetable ‘bruffins’. Parents can follow what the children are learning in the kitchen garden on the website, GCCC also has the major benefit of having Prep to Year 12 all on one campus. This means that the whole education journey is seamless and there are no fears when it comes time for Year One or the transition to high school later on.

Business Feature

One of the most important reasons for choosing GCCC Prep is that it secures the child’s education journey at a quality Christian school. Currently, there are waiting lists for grades two, three, six and eight so Prep is the perfect time to avoid the uncertainty of acceptance later on. Early enrolments are encouraged and can be made from birth.

On September 25th 2011, Coochin Creek Fruitgrowers' Co-operative will celebrate it's 75th year of trading. The Coochin Creek Fruitgrowers Co-operative was established in Beerwah in 1936 at the local railhead as a produce loading and merchandise supply centre for the local fruit and vegetable growers. From its humble beginnings, founded by 19 local farmers, the Co-op has grown dramatically over the years to the large scale retail outlet it is today. The Beerwah area has one of the highest growth rates in the nation and the changes in the area are reflected in the type of crops grown. In the 1930's, it started out with mainly pineapples, some bananas and a small amount of citrus. Then in the 1960's a significant expansion into the tobacco industry took place. From the 1970's onwards, the industry broke into the farming of tree crops including mainly avocados, macadamia nuts, mangoes and lychees.

Join in our celebration and save Receive 7.5% discount off Home Garden, Hardware including tools and electrical and Domestic Irrigation between 26th-30th September 2011 and go into the draw to win 1 of 3 $75.00 Gift Vouchers.

Today, the diversity of the area has extended to produce crops such as strawberries, ginger, potatoes, flowers, tomatoes, cucumbers, turf farms and many more. The Co-op has adapted to meet the growing changes and needs of the farming community becoming a member of IAMA in April 1991, and later expanding an alliance with Landmark and Australian Independent Rural Retailers. The Co-op now boasts in excess of 600 shareholders - a tribute to its ability to change with the times and provide shareholders and the public with the products and services they require. It provides customers access to a large scale of products including agricultural chemicals and fertilisers, irrigation , hardware, rural fencing and fuel needs, including an independent Shell service station on site.

Thankyou to all the Shareholders, Managers, Directors, Staff and Customers for making the last 75 years possible!

She’s just been awarded runner-up in Advanced Tattooing at a national conference in Sydney. “I don’t normally seek praise,� Lyn admits, “but I’ve been adding to my skills with training in the States. This was the perfect opportunity to showcase them.� Managed by the National Cosmetic Tattooing Association, the competition included several categories: full lips, hair stroke, designer eyeliner, petite body tattooing, and paramedics. Tattooing techniques are being incorporated into mainstream medical treatment. “It’s interesting to see nurses in this training now,� Lyn says. The medical profession realises the value of therapeutic tattooing and needling for scar relaxation, hair loss and as an asset to breast reconstruction, according to Lyn.

Lyn offers all these treatments and more. “I respect my clients’ need for comfort and reassurance, so my work is very caring and hands-on.�

What we need

Our District Council sends out to householders expensive brochures, telling us what to put in our two bins. Added is a list of what not to include. With mounting refuse littering local roadsides and forest verges, one wonders just what is to be done with these non-acceptable items. There are several factors outstanding. First, Council must reinstate the twice yearly inorganic collection. Second, the brown top bin for garden waste should be free, if requested. The current annual fee is not acceptable. Neither is the charge made to citizens, who themselves take goods unsuitable for further use to the local Refuse Dump for disposal. Since pensioners are now urged by the Government to remain in their homes where possible, it should be noted that some will have handed in their driving licences. Many, though otherwise able to cope, cannot lift heavy objects, such as non-working stoves or TVs. Wouldn’t it be nice, if a Council Promotion appeared, saying ‘Need help with shifting your old fridge to the road side for Monday’s collection? Ring Council beforehand.’ Great publicity for the ‘Waste Team’ and a wonderful public relations exercise! J. Valenta Landsborough

Glass House Legacy Laurel Club Thank You

A big thank you to the Beerwah, Glass House, and Landsborough community for their generosity, during legacy week. It was a great success. Also the World War 2 widows, Sid, Glenda, Bill and Doug for their help selling badges, greatly appreciated. Thank you again, Mary Southern Glass House Legacy Laurel Club


Recently, thinking I would be saving money, I purchased an item at local discount chemist. The receipt issued also said Australia’s cheapest chemist for over-counter medication. The same product at Beerwah Pharmacy was $7.00 cheaper, so I telephoned the discount chemist to query why $7.00 dearer there, and received a condescending reply of hmm, hmm ONLY $7.00 more. Now for some people, especially people on a pension, $7.00 can be a lot. The discount

advertising states that they will match prices if receipts from other chemists show the same product at a cheaper price so that is worth doing. So I say, Australia’s cheapest chemist, I think not and no customer service. Bouquets to Beerwah Pharmacy for their pricing and customer service. S. Greaves Beerwah

Update for Mr Powell

On Wednesday, September 14 there were delays on the Peachester Range of half an hour plus with traffic stretching kilometres in either direction. The maligned Traffic Controllers would have appreciated ‘Politicians Preaching Patience’ to ease their burden. On Thursday, September 15 the wait was down to 10/15 minute delays. Why are voters disillusioned, one may well ask? The Poddydodger Peachester

Handmade linen sheet brought to Bankfoot House Within the Bankfoot House collection is a handmade linen sheet. It was made by Janet Fenwick, so the family story goes, back in the Fenwick’s home village of Bankfoot in Scotland, and was one of two brought to Australia when the family emigrated in 1855. Janet Fenwick was the mother of Mary Grigor nee Fenwick, who with her husband William, established Bankfoot House in Glasshouse Mountains in 1868.

Where are the Div. 1 Candidates?

Well, we see the letters from various Division 1 Candidates in various papers on various topics but where are they when it comes to shopping in Glass House Mountains Township? Well, Division 1 Candidates – you want the people of Glasshouse to vote for you but where are your voices on the changes to Glasshouse village? Have any of you come here to find out why people are so unhappy with the changes to the shopping and services precinct? Has any one of you tried to drive to and around our shops? Try buying a coffee and a cake from the bakery any afternoon from about 5.00pm onwards and just sit there and watch the traffic, where people are supposed to drive, where people are driving anyway and the people who are just walking through the garden beds they didn’t want, because they are in the way. Try buying a loaf of bread and a renting a dvd – in that order. Does anybody know those one way signs in the IGA car park – the ones that say 'Entry Only' and 'Exit Only' – they are on private land, not a public road. Is there actually any requirement on us to obey them? Where is our current Councillor, who is still being paid to represent us? TC, Glass House Mountains

Bruce Highway upgrade

Well, last Tuesday we had another tragic motor vehicle incident on the Bruce Highway just north of Brisbane. This incident caused the normal grid lock for residents of the Sunshine Coast with extensive delays on returning home after work or business in Brisbane with some people having four (4) hours added to their normal 50 minute commute. Our local politicians want us to sign a petition to have this highway upgraded to six (6) lanes between the Bribie Island turn off and Caloundra, as they say, to improve our commute to and from Brisbane. This petition is completely wrong, in my opinion, because with only one designated highway north of Brisbane as soon as there is a traffic incident we again have another grid lock situation Any petition that I would sign would have to do with improving Old Gympie Road as an alternative route north to the Sunshine Coast and beyond. This improvement would also have to include adequate signage between the two (2) northern roads advising motorist of an alternate route to the north or south when such an incident occurs. W Hyde Beerwah

Considering the sheet is around 160 years old, it is in excellent condition. It goes without saying it is no longer used on beds. The village of Bankfoot, Perthshire, was one of the hubs of the Scottish cottage linen industry during the early nineteenth century. Until the Industrial Revolution brought mechanisation, the cottage linen industry thrived, with many villagers growing flax and using hand looms to weave linen cloth in their own homes. Bankfoot village was chiefly inhabited by people employed in weaving and all the associated work. As well as hand loom weavers, there were those engaged in spinning and winding yarn. In some families, the process of extracting linen fibre from the stem of the flax, preparing it for spinning and eventually weaving it into linen, was all carried out in their cottage. It’s more than likely that Janet Fenwick was a linen weaver in this cottage-based industry. Possibly the whole family worked in the linen industry, too. Mechanisation meant the end of the cottage industry, although this change took place over a long period of time, from the late 1700s to at least the mid 1800s. The factory system reduced the cottage system to very small areas. By the mid 1800s, the plight of the hand loom weavers was serious. The amount of money they made from their work decreased steadily and eventually ceased as factories took over. The Fenwicks emigrated to Australia in 1855, right at this time of great change in the linen industry. Alongside the effects of overpopulation and the potato famine, we believe their emigration could have been influenced by the lack of employment in the Perthshire district. For further information contact Friends of Bankfoot House, phone 5493 0197, email Ron Gillinder – President – 0407 760 989.

Swing into Beerwah for Toni Pollard Band The Toni Pollard Band play fast jumpin’ jazz / swing New Orleans style which will get your toes tapping for you to relive some of the classic songs from the early 1900’s Swing Era at the Beerwah Hotel on Sunday, September 25. Toni Pollard Band Known to mix the classics with their own street flavour, the band delivers high-powered rhythms in the style of Cab Calloway, Jelly Roll Morton and Duke Ellington; songs like ‘Everybody Loves my Baby’,’ Blue Drag’, ‘Backwater Blues’ and ‘Egyptian Ella’ are given new life by this four piece tenor sax, guitar and rhythm band. Toni’s vocals fit this style like a glove, with elements of Sarah Vaughan, Bessie Smith, Anita O’Day and Ella Fitzgerald. Greatly influenced by her mother, a ragtime / stride piano player from NZ, Toni is a graduate of the QLD Conservatorium of Music. Her mastery of jazz rhythm guitar is evident during the often complex rhythms and melodies. Elise Bosse studied music extensively in Boston, Massachusettes and has performed in USA and Europe, with influences like Coleman Hawkins, Charlie Parker and Lester Young. She can mix it up playing hard-blowin hot swing and bop then wooing you with her rich, mellow tones. Elise’s tenor style is a big feature of the band’s music. The rhythm section keeps the band tight during their sometimes frenetic sets with Tim Kemp on bass and Jeff ‘Tex’ Austin on drums and percussion instruments of the swing era.

Kidney Disease rates

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare warns cases of endstage kidney disease (ESKD) that are treated with dialysis or kidney transplantation will increase over the next decade. Australia’s ageing population and increasing rates of diabetes (the most common cause of treated ESKD) are estimated to contribute considerably to the predicted increase. The findings are included in the report, ‘Projections of the incidence of treated end-stage kidney disease in Australia, 2010-2020.’ The report is available online at: ID=10737419874

Energy Sales

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission advises that it is concerned about misleading conduct by door-to-door energy firm sales by energy firms, particularly when it involves the elderly and those with limited skills in English. The ACCC warns that misleading practices will attract severe penalties for each contravention of the guidelines of up to $220,000 for individuals and as high as $1.1 million for companies. Retailers need to ensure that the agents they employ for door-to-door marketing are complying with the law. If a retailer’s agent breaks the law, not only is the agent liable, but the retailer is as well. Details are available at: itemId/1007291/fromItemId/142 and general inquiries about the issues can be directed to the infocentre at 1300 302 502.

Interactive Gambling

A discussion paper has been released for a review of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001, with members of the public invited to have a say. The discussion paper aims to generate discussion of the various issues relating to the regulation of interactive gambling. For further information and to view the discussion paper, visit Submissions close on October 21.

Men’s Sheds offer mateship and more

Most backyards have a shed and often it’s a retreat for the man of the house. It’s a place to potter and ponder and therefore it’s little wonder that the recently introduced men’s sheds are springing up all around Australia. The Sunshine Coast has its share and right here in Beerwah, men gather to do......well, to do what men do and that’s be comfortable in the company of their mates. Apart from making and mending things, learning skills from each other and generally having a natter about the footy, men’s sheds provide an outlet for other blokes to talk to each other about things which men normally keep to themselves. Most men have learned from our culture not to talk about feelings and emotions and there has been little encouragement for them to take an interest in their own health and well-being. Men’s sheds provide that – but only if you want to take part. For instance, health wise, prostate cancer is the elephant in the room for many men. It’s not something they generally like to talk about, but the fact remains that one man in 11 is likely to be diagnosed with the condition by the age of 75. The survival rate is encouraging but treatment can leave men with negative effects and it would be easily to be drawn into isolation. A group of blokes who have undergone the same condition are bound to find comfort in talking about it themselves. Men’s sheds give us guys the opportunity to do that sort of thing. They offer a safe and busy environment where we can find all sorts of activities and advice in an atmosphere of old-fashioned mateship. Importantly, there is no pressure. Men can come and have a yarn and a cuppa if that’s all they’re looking for. Women have been mixing and discussing all sorts of things since time began. Maybe it’s time us blokes cottoned on and got into the act. For information on Men’s Sheds and their location you can call my office on 5491 2780.

LOOK FOR QUALITY MORTGAGE ADVICE Whether an experienced or first time property investor, your chances of investment success can be considerably enhanced with the support of the right experts.

While many people seek advice from accountants, real estate agents and financial planners, too often the value of guidance from a professional mortgage adviser is overlooked. With the finance typically forming the single largest expense associated with a property investment, getting

the decision right on the mortgage can be critical to your ultimate success. However, not all mortgage advisers are created equal. Here are some key points to consider when looking for a professional mortgage adviser: 1. Look for an adviser with access to 20 or more lenders. A quality mortgage adviser should have atleast 20 lenders on their panel. Ask to see the full list of lenders that the adviser is accredited to represent. 2. Ask them to disclose how much commission is paid

by each lender. Professional advisers will provide this on request without hesitation. 3. Request full documentation for the reasons why they are recommending a particular lender. Credible mortgage advisers provide their services with full transparency and should be able to provide you with a plain English written explaination of how the recommended loan meets your unique circumstances. 4. Only deal with members of the Mortgage & Finance Association of Australia. Membership of the MFAA

confirms that the adviser has met minimum professional standards. Be cautious of advisers who don’t have this membership. 5. Select a company with a proven track-record. If in doubt, go with a company that has been around for the long haul, 10 years or more. This demonstrates a track record of providing service to clients. Call Teresa Harrison on 5422 9458 or 0410 648 098 6. Look for a ‘mortgage adviser’. If researching Smartline CL No. 385325 options, search for a ‘mortgage adviser’, rather than a ‘mortgage broker’ - it is the advice and guidance that is of real value. SEPTEMBER 21 2011 |

Glasshouse Country Ministers Fellowship

As a Christian I am always shocked when someone who claims to be a Christian does something terribly wrong. Like most people I think if this person really claims to be a Christian then they would never do such a thing. Then in a moment of genuine honesty I find myself sometimes thinking if I was God there is no way I would even consider letting this person in. As I read my bible I am struck with the continual reminder that every human struggles with sin and with doing wrong. Most of us have the ability to hide it and cover it up - but we all do things that are wrong. The bible says the heart is deceitfully wicked - in other words we can do wrong and we don’t even know. In fact, many times we actually think it’s the right thing to do, but we are fooled and tricked not by anyone else but ourselves. That’s why sometimes it’s so hard to deal with people. We can see they have done wrong but they are thoroughly convinced they are in the right, because like us we are all deceived and fooled by our own hearts and thinking. When we become a Christian, God, knowing full well what we are like with our deceptive self thinking, forgives us and then says we now belong to Him as His special friends. God then begins a long and sometimes painful process of transforming us into the sort of people who can be friends with God. It’s not an instant transformation, it’s a journey and a process but it’s one that has begun and will eventually be fulfilled.

God slowly changes us to make us into the sort of people you would expect to follow Jesus. This all takes time and the truth is God has some pretty rough material to work with. God knows that. He knows we will keep messing up but the wonderful thing about God is that he keeps forgiving. Unfortunately some people claim to be Christians and take this forgiveness for granted and use it as an excuse to continue to do wrong. God calls these people hypocrites. There is a huge difference between battling with an issue and just abusing God’s kindness. God is in the forgiving business and he says that when he forgives someone that person is now changed. For some people that change takes a long time and can at times be almost unperceivable, but God changes people. One day that change will be complete but we are not there yet. In the meantime, I still struggle with my own sin and deceptive heart and thinking. That’s why I will always try (at least) to be slow to judge others and I am grateful to God that He treats me in the way I would hope to be treated and not in the way I think (sometimes) He should treat others.

Blood, Sweat and Cheers Well this is the last you will hear from me this netball year. What a wonderful and productive season the Tibro’s Club has enjoyed. We have achieved an enormous amount this year and hope to keep the ball rolling in 2012! What an exciting lead-up to the finals we've had with seven Tibro’s teams making the finals. The Tigereyes, Pearls, Emeralds, Diamonds, Gems, Opals and Rubies made the semi-finals. The Gems went straight through to the grandfinal. The Pearls, Emeralds and Rubies played the preliminary finals with the Rubies making it through to their grand final. All games were very tough. Grand final nerves were a plenty on Saturday, September 10 with the Rubies and the Gems both playing their Grand finals at 8.30am. The Rubies played hard but were defeated. Great season girls! The Gems went into their game as favourites but had a good battle when the Currimundi Panthers came out fighting. The Gems came away with the win 23-18 and had only lost one game all season which was to the Panthers. Club presentation was a fun evening and we are looking forward to a great 2012 season with many exciting plans already in place for the Club. We would like to take this opportunity

Glasshouse Country Bowls Club Contributed by Trevor Bertram

Last Wednesday’s ‘Jackpot Triples’ proved a windfall for both the winners and runners-up of the day who both also shared the $500.00 jackpot. The draw of the cards for the day’s event was for the ‘lowest winning score’ which was won by Dennis Hume, Jack Timm and Di Hunt with a score of 23 followed by Denise Sinton, Brian Fogarty and Barry Richardson with 24 points. The jackpot was drawn for a +9 which both teams had as their margin. The lucky draw card prize went to Maurie Dawes, Di Sutherland and Josef Albrecht. Business Bowls commenced on Wednesday night with 16 teams of triples competing for the 2011 Spring Series. Winners of Round 1 were ‘The Force’ with 106 points over ‘Matilda’ on 105. ‘Troppos’ were a close third on 94. The handicapper will endeavour to even the teams out for next week. Thursday morning’s game of ‘Open Pairs’ was won by Anne Howard and Tony Verdonck on a count back with 2 wins +44. The runners-up with the highest score of 24 in Game 1 were Bob Bloomer and Ron Wilson also on a count back. In the afternoon game, Clive Sinton and Graham Richardson won with 2 +44 and the runners-up were Brian Fogarty and Rob Scullion with 26 points in game 2. Friday night bowls kicked off last week with three games of consistency pairs play. Warren Blackbourne and Trevor Bertram won the night with 170 points from Rae Farrell and Kerry Kapern on 157 points. More teams are needed to make night bowls a success so please support your Club. The format of play provides a good opportunity for our newer bowlers to gain experience in ‘pairs games’.

Queensland RSL Bowling Association Sunshine Coast Zone

Contributed by Bob Moss

Recently a Team of ex-Servicemen representing the Queensland RSL Bowling Association Sunshine Coast Zone attended the 4th National Diggers Bowls Carnival held at Dubbo NSW. The games were Three Bowl Triples played over four days and Sunshine Coast entered two teams which fared very well and even brought home some prize money (“B” Team). Team A consisted of Ken Chamberlain, Roy Howard and Dave Fitzgerald and Team B were Peter Moore, Barry Johnson and Bob Moss. All of the bowlers with the exception of Bob Moss (Glasshouse Country Bowls Club) are members of Pelican Waters Bowls Club. A great time was had by all members of the team as friendships were renewed and new ones made. The Venues were great and the weather was kind, with the exception of the mornings when some of the vehicles had this cold white stuff on it called frost, which they had not seen on their vehicles before. It is hoped to enter more teams for next year’s competition.

It’s easy as A-B-C

From next week, we’ll have a new regular column featured in the last GCNews edition of each month. Tohm’s A to Z of Plants will take a look through the alphabet at some of the wonderful landscaping plants suitable for our local gardens. We’ve previously printed some of Tohm Hajncl’s contributions in GCNews and he is a regular in our sister paper, the Sunshine Valley News. I know that you’ll find Tohm’s monthly spot interesting and informative. Tohm and his wife Lisa run Amber Leaf Landscaping, where he has had an ongoing involvement in local horticultural media. We’ll still be running the usual gardening diary dates in that edition, so if you’ve got an event you want included, email the details and will go in the last edition of each month.

Bromeliad Society Inc. Contributed by Bob McLean Phone: 0427 606 240 We will have a chat this time about another very common bromeliad – Tillandsia usneoides. This species has several different common names ‘Spanish Moss’ or ‘Old Man’s Beard’ and has been used for all sorts of jobs. I have read that it has been used in the lining of saddles. Spanish Moss is a fantastic plant and is seen in many films set in the deep south of the US, hanging in dense strands from large trees. These plants do very well outdoors in our subtropical climate. The tiny plants are made up of silver-grey strands forming great beards of moss over time. Spanish Moss is quite different from all other Tillandsia. Its thin leaves 2cm to 5cm long grow at intervals along a slender stem covered with silver scales. The stem may grow many metres long making it a very striking and different plant to hang from trees or cork bark. Individual pieces can be broken off and hung over any object with ease. Over summer, tiny yellow-green flowers may appear on short stalks in the axils of the leaves. When these appear in large numbers, on still days the musky fragrance is very appealing. Seeds from this plant can be scattered over branches of trees, and with regular watering, will quickly form clumps and then strands.

Tillandsia usneoides prefers light shade and good air movement and does well when misted regularly with rainwater, or hung outdoors in the rain. An occasional mist with a very dilute foliar feed is also beneficial. This plant is wonderful for making living curtains to screen off unsightly areas or to make a mysterious entrance to a section of the garden. It is a very hardy plant and will survive on neglect. This plant like most Tillandsia is an epiphyte or air plant.


The Sunshine Coast Bonsai Society Inc. meets at the Woombye School of Arts, Blackall Street, Woombye on the fourth Saturday of the month. This month the meeting will be held on Saturday, September 24 and will take the form of a Three Ring Demonstation. Visitors will be most welcome and afternoon tea will be served during the afternoon. Doors open at 1.00pm for a 1.10pm start.

Spring has sprung all over the Sunshine Coast and one of our local native wildflowers, the Hairy Bush Pea, is exploding with blooms. Usually found on the fringes of eucalypt forests, the Hairy Bush Pea will flower heavily for a couple of months in late winter and early spring. It grows to about 2m but we recommend pruning it around 1.5m to maintain a bushier shrub. It has lovely soft new growth and a mature plant has a slightly weeping effect and looks great amongst a mixed native bed. Another benefit is that it attracts the gorgeous Fringed Blue Butterfly.

So the mother sent the eight-year-old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the preacher in the afternoon. The preacher, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, “do you know where God is, son?” The boy’s mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there wide-eyed with his mouth

When you are not sure of what you want and where you are going, perhaps it is time to stop and take some time out for yourself. Many changes can occur in your life now. New contacts made will have quite a considerable impact on you. Self observation of your actions and reactions as you communicate with others will be a great asset to you. You will learn a great deal more about yourself than at any other time. Communications will be important. This is an excellent time for furthering your studies and career. Finances will start to show promise and there could be a waiting period for a new business venture. By changing your way of thinking many new doors can open for you.

Your interest in the metaphysical and spiritual matters can be heightened now. You may even begin to study these more strongly. The main thing is you are opening up a new life and growing more on the spiritual level.

Decisions regarding a relationship may need to be made, as well as deciding on a career. Your financial prospects will be favourable.

The preacher raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy’s face and bellowed, “where is God?” The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, “what happened?” The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, “we are in BIG trouble this time, GOD is missing, and they think we did it!” Des Holmquest Landsborough
