Last Friday night I woke up in the wee small hours in a bit of a panic. I don’t know why but in the middle of a perfectly good sleep I had suddenly thought “oh no – I forgot to remind everyone about the new Labour Day public holiday and it is only a week away”. While this isn’t a big deal for most people, a short week in our office and for our regular advertisers seems to throw us into a spin, as Monday is our go-to-print day. So if we want to get the paper out that week it means we have to have everything finished and to the printer on Friday. So when I remembered this in the middle of the night I got out of bed and busily emailed myself a task list for everything I would need to do on Monday morning – so when Monday

morning arrived I was a bit frenzied. I had started talking about what we would need to do straight away – have to say it was a relief when Brownie politely told me that I was a week ahead of myself and that the public holiday was still two Mondays away. While I absolutely hate to be wrong – and hate even more when someone points it out – I guess this being the first year of the changed date, I can be excused.

Local News

Local author inspired to share her stories By Lea Parkes

Last week when I met Glass House Mountains author Cathy Bauman she had just come from a successful book reading locally and her passion for sharing her stories clearly shone through. Cathy has recently had a series of four gorgeous children’s books republished, which she took along to the playgroup held at the Glass House Mountains Neighbourhood Centre where she held the children captivated with her stories. “What I really enjoy is seeing how the children respond to the stories and their very direct feedback,” Cathy said. “The children love to share their thoughts and give me great ideas for future books.” Cathy published a series of six children’s books in the late nineties, with the theme of ‘A time in the life of’ featuring different topics of a leaf, a hair, a drip, an egg, a shadow and a grain of sand. The books were educational with stories that are factual, while being interesting and fun for children with their colourful illustrations that appealed to the imagination of little readers.

Knowing that the stories were timeless and that they would appeal to today’s children just as much as they did when she wrote them all those years ago, she approached a publisher on the Coast and got their advice about republishing the books. Their response was positive. They thought the stories were great, they just needed to be revamped with more modern artwork – so they found a local Sunshine Coast illustrator and a first series of four books has been published and – depending on their success – a second series will be go to print either later this year or early next year. Cathy’s passion for sharing stories has also seen her produce a book on the history of ‘Beak Pastoral Company’ and she is also in the process of writing a story about her husband Bob and his twenty-year struggle with Parkinson’s Disease. Cathy is keen to share her work with her young audience as well as their parents and grandparents and is happy to do book readings for other local groups. If you would like to organise a reading you can contact her directly to request it. While the publisher will be making sure the books are available in bookshops, Cathy is also selling them directly to locals, at $12.00 per book plus postage and handling. To contact Cathy to organise readings or to purchase a book, all you need to do is email cathy.bauman@bigpond.com.

Budding writer wins prize Bayley O'Brien from Peachester has won Queensland Second Prize in a national writing competition. Bayley, who attends Glasshouse Country Christian College, was chosen from more than 3,800 entries for his entry in the Pilot Pen Creative Writing Scholarship 2013. The competition was judged by renowned children’s author, Andy Griffiths and Sonja Walker, director of Kids First Children’s Services. Mr Griffiths said they chose Bayley's entry because it showed a lot of imagination and a clear plot. “It was a great story that keeps the reader’s interest from beginning to end,” he said. Bayley won $500.00, a $100.00 Pilot Pen Pack and a signed Andy Griffiths book pack worth $100.00. “I am absolutely delighted to have won second prize in this competition,” Bayley said. “It has definitely given me more confidence to keep writing!” Barbara Oliver from Pilot Pen Australia said that this year they received more entries than ever before. “Our heart-felt thanks goes out to all of the schools, mums and dads and children who took the time to enter,” she said. “The volume and standard of entries clearly shows that creative writing is alive and well in our community – a wonderful sign of hope for future generations of readers and story-tellers alike.” Bayley's winning entry can be read, along with the other finalists, on the Pilot Pen website: www.pilotpen.com.au.

Beerwah Pool on track for reopening Since July 19 the Beerwah Aquatic Centre has been closed due to upgrade and maintenance work required on both the 25-metre pool and the ‘learn to swim’ pool. The work required for the equipotenial bonding upgrades on the ‘learn to swim’ pool has now been completed. The re-tiling work on the 25-metre pool is progressing well and all appears on track for reopening on October 8.

Pool Managers, Brenden and Allison Roser said it is a real shame that the pool is not available for this current school holidays, however in the long run the community will be pleased with the final results with the 25-metre pool being like a new pool. “The timeframe to complete the work was completely dependent on the weather – and with such a long dry run this has certainly gone in our favour,” Brenden said. Allison said they are “really looking forward to welcoming everyone back” and they have planned a celebration for when they reopen. “We will keep everyone updated on what we have planned closer to the time,’’ she said. While the pool is still closed, Allison is continuing to check the answering machine, so if you have any questions, make sure you leave a message and she will get back to you as soon as possible.

Rural Fire Service Queensland (RFSQ) Assistant Commissioner Neil Gallant said precautions were being taken by firefighters to prepare for potential vegetation fires as the fire danger rating climbed to very high to severe in some areas. “Some locations may experience high temperatures, low relative humidity and strong winds which together will make it difficult for firefighters to contain any vegetation fires that flare up,” he said. Mr Gallant said current conditions meant it was crucial for residents to ensure they were prepared for potential vegetation fires. “Residents need to finalise preparing their properties and if they haven’t done so already, visit the Rural Fire Service website to download a bushfire survival plan,” he said. If you are unsure of what you can do to reduce your risk and prepare for a fire event, contact one of our local Volunteer Community Educators (VCE) who can give you specific advice about your property. Each week GCNews will bring you details of your

local VCE in case you need their advice. A letter on this week’s ‘You Said It’ page brings up one possible area of uncertainty – burning off. Trevor Jakeman, Fire Warden with the Landsborough Rural Fire Brigade, explains that landholders who need to reduce their dry matter fuel levels, or someone who needs to safely burn off a pile of vegetation, can easily apply for a fire permit with their local Fire Warden. “We assess the application and make sure that the purpose is legitimate and that safety conditions are in place. If needed, the local Rural Fire Brigade can assist in the burning activity for the cost of a donation to the brigade,” he said. We asked Trevor if a person can check if they aren’t sure if someone in the neighbourhood has lit an approved permitted fire. “Part of the permit process is for the applicant to notify their neighbours. This is to reduce the likelihood of unnecessary concern,” Trevor said. “If you’re still unsure, you can always contact North Coast Fire Comm on 1800 354 621. “If it isn’t approved, they will take the appropriate action.” Fire Warden contacts can be found by using the interactive map on the Rural Fire Service website – www.ruralfire.qld.gov.au/fw_finder.asp.

Teghan gets a lesson from Timomatic Students at Teghan’s Dance Club at Peachester might just find their teacher has stepped it up a notch next semester after returning from Sydney where she attended the Australian Dance Festival at Sydney Olympic Park Sports Stadium. During the festival, Teghan participated in eight workshops with some of Australia’s leading dancers and choreographers including the internationally renowned Timomatic. By taking part in the workshops, dancers also had the opportunity to be selected to compete in the 'Dance Around the World Solo Competition'. Hundreds of dancers participated in Timomatic's workshop, so Teghan was understandably rapt when he chose her as one of his ‘Top 6 contenders’. While she wasn’t ultimately chosen to go through to the competition – this was a great achievement. Teghan said that the workshops were challenging, fun, diverse and inspiring! Every dancer / choreographer had a different style of dance and teaching, but with a universal passion for what they do and high energy! It was very exhilarating! She is really looking forward to returning to teaching in term four and sharing her experience and new techniques with her students. For the ladies, if you like Beyoncé’s ‘Single Ladies' (Put a Ring on It)’ Teghan can teach you to dance like Beyoncé. From Tuesday, October 8 she will be teaching a class in the Peachester Hall on Tuesday nights at 6.45pm. Teghan's Dance Club has classes from four years to adults, including her boys only Club. Teghan's focus is fun, affordable Hip Hop classes. For further information about Teghan's Dance Club phone 5494 9192 or check out the Club’s Facebook page 'Teghan's Dance Club'.

Traffic operation, Beerburrum

Sunshine Coast Police and officers from the Road Policing Command detected four drug drivers and three drink drivers during operation Lima Agenor at Beerburrum last Thursday night. During the operation 1097 breath tests and 46 drug tests were conducted on the Bruce Highway between 8.00pm and 1.00am. There were 17 people issued with notices to appear on 33 charges including drug possession, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and driving licence offences. Officer in Charge of the Sunshine Coast Road Policing Unit Senior Sergeant Shane Panoho said it was disappointing drivers are not considering the safety of other road users before they get behind the wheel. “Every drink and drug-affected driver we get at an operation like this is one too many,” Senior Sergeant Panoho said. “Police can perform road safety enforcement anywhere, anytime. “Before you get into your car, consider what affect your actions could have on yourself and other road users. “We want the community to work together to reduce road trauma in Queensland.”

Time to nominate a local hero

Council this week launched their Australia Day Awards program and they are asking residents to nominate individuals and organisations in our community that work to make the region a better place. The Mayor, Mark Jamieson, reckons it’s important that we not only celebrate their contribution on Australia Day but also publicly acknowledge them via a formal, highly respected, awards program. Nominations are being sought for the following categories: Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, Senior Citizen of the Year, Community Group or Organisation, Creative, Environment and Sport and Recreation. Nominations close December 13 and entries can be completed online, downloaded from council’s website or picked up from customer service centres, libraries, Sunshine Coast University and TAFE. For more information visit www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au or email ausdayawards@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au www.gcnews.com.au


Plenty of girl power on new Chamber executive There has been much media interest in the fact that our new Prime Minister’s Cabinet is very gender imbalanced, with only one female member. Well it would seem that the new Executive Team for the Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce is faced with the same dilemma. However, President Bob McLean isn’t concerned about being the only male executive member of the team. He’s looking forward to working with this dynamic group of local business women who each have the local business community at heart. The new members are Vice President, Diane Ford from Smartlearn Training and Development, Secretary Lisa Sauer from Top Gun Paint and Panel, and Tara Smithyson from Total Microsystems. They join with continuing members Ursula Starkovsky from Glasshouse Country First National and Vicki Heading of Beerwah Hair and Beauty. They are a group of ‘doers’ which means the Chamber will be able to see real results from the group. Already there are positive signs of what is to come, with the initial presentation of the ‘Buy Local First’ campaign to members. “I am also really pleased that we now have an executive that represents businesses in Glass House Mountains, Beerwah, Landsborough and even Maleny,” Bob said. Secretary, Lisa Sauer said in this current economic climate, it’s more important than ever to have a strong local business voice.

Painful feet? It’s time to fix them 1300 881 082 www.steppingoutpodiatry.com.au BEERWAH • LANDSBOROUGH • MALENY

Diane Ford, Bob McLean, Ursula Starkovsky, Tara Smithyson, Vicki Heading and Lisa Sauer “We need to stand up and be counted, be loud in lobbying for the best outcomes for Glasshouse Country and united in support of one another – our best business community asset is local consumer loyalty,” she said. Vice President Di Ford from Smartlearn said the more business people work together and get familiar with the way other businesses work, the more people can support each other and their communities. Publicity Officer Tara Smithyson became involved in the Chamber because it seemed that local business people were drowning in negativity, she said. “I want to contribute as much as I can to help bring more positivity into our local business economy and encourage locals to remember to always shop local first,” Tara said. The executive is keen to officially launch the Buy Local First campaign at their annual dinner in October at the Beerwah RSL, where the keynote speaker will be Mayor Mark Jamieson.

Desperately seeking Tibro's history The Tibro Netball Club at Glass House Mountains was originally established in 1989 with five Senior ladies teams. With this year marking their 25 year anniversary, the club has decided to celebrate and reflect on their history. An Anniversary Dinner is planned for Saturday, November 9 which should be a great opportunity for former and current members to catch up with old friends, reminisce about their ‘glory days’ and celebrate this significant milestone. Glass House Mountains local Dimi Young, as the club’s most senior member, has taken on the task of collecting the club’s history with photos, memorabilia, trophies and special memories. These will be on display on the night and then afterwards collated into a booklet. Dimi has been working on the project this year and already has spent quite a lot of time scanning back copies of GCNews for any news stories, and doing some detective work to track down all 12 of the Club Presidents since 1989.

YOUR LOCAL FOOT & ANKLE CLINIC

Even with the wonders of Facebook, she still hasn’t managed to locate Sandra Jordan who was the President in 97 – 98. “If anyone in the community has photos, trophies, special club memories, an original uniform from 1989 or is still in contact with Sandra Jordan I would really love them to get in contact with me on email petedimi@bigpond.net.au or by phoning 0409 103 937,” Dimi said. Present and past members and friends of the club are invited to come along on the night. Tickets are $50.00 per person, which includes a three course meal and live entertainment. They can be purchased from the Glasshouse Mountains Sports Club or from the netball club during the Monday and Wednesday night competitions. If you would like tickets posted out or want to enquire about the evening, please contact Tracey on 5494 0339.

Council scraps compulsory green waste bin by Greg Brown At last Thursday’s Council meeting, community outrage won the day, with Councillors voting 9 to 3 to dump the two week old plan to introduce mandatory green waste bins for a $60.00 fee. The new charge was to have commenced on July 1, 2014 but has now been referred for further investigation as part of the Waste Minimisation Strategy review. Local Glasshouse Country readers panned the compulsory bin plan as being ‘unfair’ and a ‘money grab’. Local Councillors Rick Baberowski and Jenny McKay voted against the original motion which was taken behind closed doors in a confidential session, and were two of the nine who supported

the veto of the plan last Thursday. The latest motion approved at the meeting decided to not proceed with the green waste bin as part of a new waste collection contract … ‘due to the relatively high cost per property and the low waste diversion levels achieved.’ This means that the cost to ratepayers was too high for the small difference it would have made to the amount of green waste going to landfill – contrary to what Mayor Mark Jamieson claimed in his media statement after the original decision was made. More sensibly, the new decision from Council strengthens community education programs to encourage more residents to home compost and make use of the existing optional green waste bin system.

Travelling Tales Ron and Robyn Gillander from Glass House Mountains and their son Tom recently returned from an overseas holiday and this is what Ron had to say about it… Where did you travel to? Las Vegas in the middle of the Nevada Desert. I would have liked to have flown up the Grand Canyon but didn’t get the opportunity (this time). What are the things that left an impression on you? • daytime temperatures didn’t drop below 40 degrees • most establishments on 'The Strip' don’t close • poker machines are everywhere – including in the airport gate lounge and on the footpath • disorientation was a constant risk – particularly when trying to find an exit from a casino • drinks in casinos were free if you are gambling – but a $1 tip to the waitress meant she came back more than once • monorail stations could only be accessed by walking through at least two casinos • thousands of people were walking down Las Vegas Boulevard drinking beer or cocktails – numbers increase after midnight

Freemont Street – Downtown Vegas

www.gcnews.com.au

The Forum shops • ladies in brief costumes were encouraging you to take their photographs – for a price • smoking was permitted everywhere – including in restaurants • frequent sirens at all hours from paramedic vans and police cars speeding down 'The Strip' • late night outdoor rock concerts could cause your hotel bed to vibrate • your visual senses were totally consumed by the ever-changing neon signs • you were always being stopped in the street and offered ‘free’ tickets to shows or an immediately available escort • there was a regular propulsion of water skywards from the Bellagio fountains • the elaborate, no-expense-spared interiors of the competing casino reception areas • an absence of any recognisable ‘normal’ commercial business you might expect to find in a city CBD • a Sunday drive back to Los Angeles on the freeway quickly becomes a four lane carpark. Rock of Ages Show at The Venetian (and Tom in wig)

The view from their room

'The Strip' after midnight How did pricing of things compare to Australia? Food, liquor, petrol, clothing (discount outlets) and cigarettes were cheaper by Australian standards. Would you recommend Las Vegas as a holiday destination? I would recommend it as a must-see destination (once) but only for about three or four days. You very quickly get over the glitz, heat, tipping culture and artificial facade. However the novelty value was probably eight out of 10. My son would disagree. He would give it 10/10 and wants to work there!

Business Buzz with Carol Fitton Beefy’s Pies won Australian Gold at the Sydney’s Fine Food Show held recently. Their signature Steak Pie received this prestigious award much to the delight of the Beefy’s team. As well as winning Silver for their Thai Green Curry Chicken, they also won Silver for both their Angus Steak and their Aussie Special aka Ned Kelly Pie. Being up against over 1,000 pie entries, and being tested by 12 judges it is a credit to the team at Beefy’s to win Gold. So if you want to support a local family business (plus enjoy a really great pie!), go Gold these school holidays at Beefy’s! Two of their six shops are located in Glasshouse Country – one at Aussie World, and one at Glass House at Wild Horse Mountain.

Community News Rotary Update Contributed by Ursula Starkovsky The Rotary Club of Glasshouse Mountains is always extremely busy in August and September. It is the time when other clubs have their annual events and our club helps local organisations raising funds for their cause, like providing gate keepers at the Beerwah Sports Day, organising a sausage sizzle at the ‘Garage Sale’ at Australia Zoo, as well as the Father’s Day function organised by the Beerwah High School Chaplaincy. It does get tricky when we have two events on the same day like the Sport’s Day in the morning and the Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings in Caloundra which was an all-day event. We have had a combined evening at the Caloundra Golf Club with the clubs in our Rotary Cluster. This was the official visit of our ‘home grown’ District Governor Trevor Taylor. It is always good to see friends from the other clubs and exchange information or simply enjoy a few

hours of fellowship. Father’s Day was another hectic day for the club. Firstly we had a sausage sizzle at Australia Zoo, and Induction of John then in the afternoon Simpson it continued in Skippy Park to help raise funds for the chaplaincy. Besides all the activity, we have had fun and a lot of camaraderie and best of all, we said hello to a new member, John Simpson. A big Welcome to you, John! Please note – we will be launching next year’s calendar soon! Interested in joining us? Our club meets every second Monday at the Beerwah Hotel and we welcome visitors and, of course, potential new members. Give us a call on 0478 813 630, we would love to hear from you.

Business backs fight against cancer Hinterland Boxing Club (HBC) client Kelly Yeo is participating in the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers™ to raise funds that will benefit the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR) and Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH). The walk is to end breast cancer and gynaecologic cancer - including ovarian cancer, uterine cancer and cervical cancer. HBC is a proud supporter of Kelly and the fight against cancer, and to assist her fundraising efforts they organised a ‘Train for an End’ day on Sunday, August 25.

The training was a ‘Strength / Conditioning and a Boxing Session’ with each participant paying $10.00. They also organised a raffle, and in total the club was able to raise $530.00 to contribute to Kelly’s efforts. Thanks also to the other local businesses who donated prizes for the raffle including a Hinterland Seafood voucher valued at $50.00, Elimination Pest Management – Internal / External Pest Control valued at $176.00, Beerwah Hotel Dinner Voucher valued at $50.00 - HBC - 10 Pass Card, hand wraps, HBC hat and a shaker valued at $140.00.

Contributed by Coral Beutel, Hon. President At our AGM Coral Beutel was returned as President, Bev Wild as Treasurer, Margaret Ferris as Secretary, while Cath Howitt is our new Vice President and Eileen Geesen is our International Officer. We welcomed a new member Joanne who is amazing with her knowledge of handicrafts, showing us some unusual crafts. On Thursday night, August 25 the Queensland Country Women’s Association was inducted into the Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame. Mrs Hill, State President, said some of the inductee criteria covered sustained leadership, major financial contributions, pioneering and outstanding contribution and length of service to Queensland. “During our 90-year history, thousands of women have served their community through the best and harshest of experiences which include World War II, recessions, floods, fires and droughts,” Mrs Hill said. “Our members have worked tirelessly towards supporting people, causes and other organisations in our communities. It is an honour and proud moment in our history to be recognised for our outstanding social and philanthropic contribution to the community.” We will be celebrating our sixty-eighth birthday on October 16 with a luncheon at the Good Old Days Shoppe, Peachester. Congratulations to Emma, Lexie and Kayla who won prizes in the division international competition. Joan Kropp will be our representative at the state conference in Bundaberg. To those who have entries going to conference, good luck! Don’t forget the village markets at Peachester Hall Saturday, September 28, 10.00am to 4.00pm.

Cheryl and Murray Fox are back – call in and say hello! Cheryl and Murray Fox would like to welcome all previous and new customers to check out their newly refurbished seafood shop. They began a seafood business here in Beerwah over 19 years ago, which many readers will remember, they ran the business with their two daughters Cassie and Elisha. They decided to take a break from the shop nine years ago, and in that time have continued to run the wholesale side of C & M Seafoods, maintaining a valuable link with local trawlers and fishermen. Cheryl has spent the time furthering her knowledge of the industry, completing many courses in safe food handling, HACCP, quality assurance, and workplace health, safety and hygiene. Cheryl said having the opportunity to work in two large seafood companies as a quality control manager, and also as a seafood specialist and trainer has meant she can now bring those strengths to their own shop in Beerwah.

“We aim to offer the locals an outstanding level of quality and service, and our many years in the seafood industry can help us source whatever you are looking for,” Cheryl said. “We pride ourselves on the importance of locals supporting locals, so strive to source locally whenever possible. “We use Barry Family Butchers for our meat and chicken, Matilda Fruit Barn for our fruit and veggies and Beerwah Bakery for our bread rolls. “We are fortunate to be able to say we have sourced all our seafood products from trawlers out of Mooloolaba and Moreton Bay, with local fishermen from Bribie Island, Caloundra and Maroochydore,” Murray added. Cheryl’s tip for the pick of summer seafood is with lovely sweet bay prawns as well as king and tiger prawns, there will also be sand crabs and Balmain bugs, and as the season progresses, look out for the freshest flathead, mullet, and whiting as they become available.

Business feature

Open from 9.30am – 7.00pm Tuesday to Sunday, for fresh, snap frozen, raw and cooked seafood – perfect for you to take away or cook at home. Plus they offer a range of traditional lunchtime and family pack takeaway specials, for those busy or family treat times. Call in and say hello today.

Beerwah Rural Fire Service Contributed by Lou Spann G'day Readers, It has been a long time since the Beerwah Brigade has given an update of its activities. We have been busy preparing for the current fire season by carrying out a number of controlled burnoffs in the area. If you haven't done so already, you really should make preparations around your home, especially if you live in an area surrounded by bush. We have also been busy with responding to a number of fires in bushland settings and the highway in our district in recent times. Our water issues have been sorted with the re-establishment of the hydrant at the station. To all community members who gave us support for this issue, we are very grateful. The Rural Fire Brigade Association of Queensland came forward and paid Unity Water the fee and for this we are very appreciative. We are now back to where we

Paul has decided to move on from the Brigade. He has been a valuable member since joining seven years ago. Since joining, he has held the positions of firefighter, Station Officer and more recently Fifth Officer. He has always been a great man in a pinch and has been a major participant in fire response and mitigation activities throughout that time. He has also been a major campaigner for our fight for the water supply. We wish him well as he continues life now as a community member of Peachester. Thanks for everything Paul.

Val’s insight into the written word was of great benefit to all members, as many of us are working on autobiographies or novels. Whether you are a writer, or just interested in writing, this is a friendly welcoming group whose members range from beginners to accomplished, published authors. Refreshments are provided for a small donation. Guests and visitors are welcome. Beerwah Writers Group meets every second and fourth Friday of each month at the Beerwah Library.

Friends of Beerwah Library have been going well with their Baby Book Bag Fundraising Project and the ladies are madly sewing to keep up stocks. However, they rely on donated fabrics for these and their supplies are low. They would really appreciate donations of patchwork fabrics or similar to continue producing the beautiful bags available for sale at the Beerwah Library. If you would like to purchase a bag they are priced at $7.00 for a bag, and $10.00 for a bag with an age appropriate book inside. The funds raised from the sale of the bags goes towards purchasing items for the library. To donate fabric or for further information please contact the Beerwah Library.

How much are you earning on your investments?

Choose the secure way Business feature to invest in solar – choose local

Have you looked into your investments and savings? Let’s say you are earning 5% on your investments. This means if you had $7,000 invested your annual return would be $350 – which is not much at all. However, if you used that $7,000 and paid it to your local solar electrician he would see that you earned approximately $821 per annum, or 11.7%. Why not ask your bank manager or financial adviser what they think about that. And 11.7% is a conservative average, based on the occupants being at work for most of the day. The return on investment can increase considerably if the occupants are actually home during the day – yes, that is correct! And if the power provider is either AGL or Origin, then the ROI increases even more. It is not difficult to get 21.4% return on your investment by purchasing a smaller system. All of the local electricians listed below sell these Impact Solar systems, so phone your choice of electrician to buy a new system or increase the size of your existing one. Ask your local electrician about this, but don’t tell your bank manager or he might leave and start selling solar systems too!

As you may be aware, many unscrupulous operators raced in to sell solar as soon as they knew there was a Government subsidy to claim – just like the insulation fiasco. There are local residents who have purchased a solar system within the last four years from an out-of-town solar company – if you are one of these local people perhaps you might phone the company to see if they too have closed up shop? We are 100% local and work alongside your local electricians to offer a personalised service from sale, solar panel fittings through to after sale support. We’re committed to matching you to the best solar option possible, without the typical hard sell – we prefer you to be comfortable with your investment rather than make a quick dollar. We are here for the long run, and with an expected rise in electricity prices of approximately 8% per year until at least 2016, maybe now’s the time to call into the office or phone Ian for a chat. He has been in the solar industry since 1989 and can give advice on how to minimise your costs and maximise your investment.

Located on Steve Irwin Way Glass House Mountains

Many out of town solar companies have already closed up When you have a problem with your solar system, who do you call ? If you had purchased from a LOCAL supplier, chances are they are still in town, their kids still go to the same school. Remember 25 years is a long time, and that is your warranty period. Here are the locals who WILL look after you when you get a problem, want to purchase an Impact Solar System or add a few panels then buy locally and reap all the benefits.

Jed Fuller from 2M holding up the huge potato he harvested in the GCCC Kitchen Garden Brown meant students could get dirty digging up the potatoes they had lovingly tended for so long. The anticipation and excitement of turning the spade to reveal what lay beneath had all the children longing for a turn. Dirt, potatoes and laughs flew freely across the garden bed before the cooking began. The smell of potato rostis and grilled mushrooms made everyone hungry and meant there were no leftovers. Preppies were kept busy weeding and mulching their adopt-a-garden beds in readiness for the next plantings of flower seedlings.

Contributed by Sandy Johnson Kitchen Garden classes at Glasshouse Country Christian College are fun and often adventurous. This term the students have been eating their way through the rainbow. The first week began with red fruit and vegetables such as capsicum, tomatoes, grapes, watermelon, strawberries and radishes were harvested to make little tasting plates for the students. Orange and yellow week meant the students could cover themselves with flour making pumpkin scones. Even children who screwed up their nose at the idea of eating pumpkin came back for seconds and thirds. For the colour green, students took turns naming the green fruits and vegetables and were amazed at how many there were. They harvested zucchini and kohlrabi and made quiches. Purple seemed challenging but the cooks made little prune cakes and the students ate fresh beetroot ‘spaghetti’ resulting in the whole class having purple tongues. Of all the colours, brown turned out to be the most fun.

Busy term and fun at Mooloolah Contributed by Kylie Gillespie We’ve had Science Week with Doctor Joe, and Brisbane excursions week (to Parliament House, Planetarium, Art Gallery and Science Museum)! We’ve been visited by an Australian Olympian in Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week and the Gubbi Gubbi people recently! Students wrote the following stories about two of these special events. Olympic Swimmer Visits by Georgia, aged 12 As an infant, Marayke Jonkers was in a car accident, and lost the function of her lower body. When told by the doctors that Marayke wouldn’t be able to walk again, Marayke’s mother taught her to swim! Marayke didn’t realise she was different to other kids, and was determined to match them in the pool! She worked hardest on

butterfly because her arms and body could make her legs move. Her talent and determination got her all the way to the Para-Olympics - and a bronze medallion! Mooloolah State School students were really fortunate to have Marayke come in Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week to talk about her journey, and making dreams reality. Book Week Parade by Lucy, aged 10 Mooloolah State School Book Week Parade was a great opportunity for kids and teachers to get out and show off their favourite book characters. We had Percy Jackson to Spiderman and everything in between! Cruella Deville and Wise Old Owl judged the show, and Snow White compared with help from junior Snow White! It was a magical time!

Beerwah State School’s got talent Contributed by Sally Maxwell – Music teacher We are very proud to wish Sarah James (pictured right) congratulations! The very talented Year 7 student performed recently at Queensland’s State wide production ‘Creative Generation - State Schools Onstage’ (CGEN).

She performed alongside Queensland’s leading professional artists such as Luke Kennedy and James Morrison at an amazing arena-style show staged at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, South Bank. We are very proud of her achievements here at Beerwah State Primary School and hope she will continue her success as a singer into her high school years and beyond.

Save the forest!

I love reading your news each week as it keeps me informed of what is happening locally and what plans the local pollies have for the local area. I was horrified to read the comment by the State member for Glasshouse Andrew Powell on September 11 page 14 ‘I am happy to confirm the footprint has been reduced down from 35 to 24!! .....And then in future a further six of the remaining nine hectares will be reclaimed.’ I would have thought intelligence was a prerequisite to become a politician, not ignorance. I’m deeply disappointed again by the lack of care being afforded to the environment by the government. The only reassuring thing is that when we have wiped the planet and the human race out through greed, anger and environmental destruction....it will rejuvenate itself....it was here way before us! Name supplied Mooloolah

Thanks

As a frequent visitor to this beautiful area I would like to commend one of your local businesses for their excellent service. The guys at Beerwah Exhaust Radiator and Mechanical have provided a helpful, professional and reasonably cost service, for which I have been most grateful. I am a single lady who travels alone so I certainly appreciate such assistance. I will be quick to promote this business wherever I go. Leonore Nuske, Mannum, South Australia

Council should confirm details

The other day I received a letter of complaint from the Sunshine Coast Council - for causing a smoke nuisance with open fires. Apparently one of my neighbours made the complaint. Now the strange thing is that there have been no open fires at my place since this time last year. I know that the Rural Fire Brigade have been helping my neighbour burn some stacks of old dead timber. They were at least 70 metres from my boundary and clearly visible from the road. Maybe my neighbour was mistaken about my address because the origin of the smoke was quite clear? Nevertheless I do find this occurrence odd on several accounts: 1. That the SCC officer should accuse me of this offence without ascertaining that the fires were on my property. 2. That a fire authorised under the Rural Fires Act and attended by the Rural Fire Brigade should be the subject of a formal complaint notice. 3. That people who choose to live in a rural area should complain about fires and smoke. Fuel reduction burns are as much a part of rural life as roosters crowing and cows bulling. Complaining about smoke in a rural area is akin to living on a highway and complaining about traffic noise. The complainant might also want to consider the short term discomfort of fuel reduction fires compared with the heartache caused by a wildfire (remember '94?), the risk of which Spring burning will help minimise. I tried to call the SCC officer to discuss this, and I left several messages - to date he has not replied to me. Can I suggest in future that the SCC officer that takes these calls a) makes sure that they have the correct details before sending a complaint notice, b) checks with the Fire Warden to determine if the fire is authorised under another Act, c) explains to the complainant why people burn off in Spring and what the risks of not burning are, and d) returns phone calls. And, I do have a number of fuel reduction burns planned for the next few weeks, authorised under a permit and with the Rural Fire Brigade in attendance, to reduce Summer fire risk. I would thank my neighbour not to make complaints about those fires, and the SCC officer not to issue a complaints notice for a fire lit under the authority of another piece of legislation and for the public benefit.

The Lewy Body Support Group Sunshine Coast would like to thank Lea and Staff at GCNews together with the Landsborough Market, and Landsborough School of Arts Memorial Hall Inc. for their help in promoting the launch of the International symbol of Dementia Awareness, The Purple Angel in Landsborough last Saturday. The launch was small but powerful and the emotions and dialogue it fostered was mind blowing. If you would like to know more about how to help your business or your town become Dementia Aware or to learn about Dementia and its impacts on families and caregivers we would be happy to do a presentation to your staff or group.

The Purple Angel is a grass roots movement that can be found in over 15 countries throughout the world and there is no fee attached to become involved. It is about people caring for people. Please contact Linda on 0413 009 840 for further information. Linda Finches Beerwah

Blatant lies

I refer to the letter in the September 18 issue of GCNews, RE: Taking action before it is too late. I am constantly amazed at the number of people who believe the garbage that is produced, it’s idiots like Tim Flannery, our esteemed ‘climate change’ commissioner, and the people who produce blatant lies about CO2, call it scientific evidence, and insist that CO2 is killing us, and then Gillard’s Carbon Tax will save us all. I would like to ask this reader if he can answer the following questions with any degree of accuracy; 1. What percentage of the atmosphere do you believe is CO2? 2. Have you ever seen a percentage published by any media? 3. What percentage of CO2 is man made?

Not a joke or prank

About a year ago I became interested in cryptozoology. I am particularly interested in the phenomena of the ‘Yowie’, ‘Hairy Man’ or ‘Doolighal’. Through my research on the internet, I was overwhelmed at the number of reported sightings along the eastern seaboard. Reports from the earliest settlers and even stories from Aborigines, pre white man, are plentiful. From what I have read, there seems to be some real hot spot areas where these animals supposedly live, including Taree, Pilliga Scrub, Lamington National Park and particularly here in the Glass House Mountains, Kilcoy and Kenilworth. I am curious to know if these animals do or did in fact exist. I am starting to compile my own database regarding local sightings of these creatures and would dearly love to hear from people who have encountered, sighted or experienced unusual events that can’t be explained. I would love to speak to any local Aboriginal people to find out their stories that may have been re-told to them by elders. From what I gather the yowie is a nocturnal animal although there have been plenty of daylight sightings, especially early morning or dusk. They are territorial and mark their territory by making tee-pee like structures with broken branches or bend large saplings over and pin them under a low branch of another tree. I have seen video of a tree like this and it is most unusual as there is no explanation as to how the tree got like that. Obviously extremely large footprints are signs and there are thousands of those that have been plaster casted over many years. Although I have never encountered a yowie, they can grow up to eight to 10 feet tall and apparently they know you are there long before you know of their presence, hence the reason why one hasn’t been captured. They hide behind trees and stand very still peeking from the side just like a little child does when playing hide and seek which also explains why they are hard to photograph.

They can leave large marks in grassy areas where they have been taking a nap and also have a very pungent odour that smells something like a burning electrical smell crossed with rotten garbage. They also bite sizable chunks out of the side of trees trying to get to the ants in the heartwood. They communicate long distances by knocking branches against a tree trunk. These characteristics have been described many times from the top of Queensland right down to Victoria, but I have yet to see or find anything anywhere that resembles such. This is not a prank or a joke; I would really like to hear from anyone with their stories and will give my utmost attention, respect and discretion in this matter and would appreciate the same from those that decide to contact me. Please don’t waste my time with silly pranks or jokes. I am genuine in my research. You can contact me via email at beerwah.yowie@live.com.au Les The Beerwah Yowie researcher

Planned photo shoot

In reply to letters from bush walker and Lee-Ann Raddatz, I’d like readers to know the following: I am the proud photographer behind the winning image for the Beerwah Lions Business Directory, depicting the hinterland lifestyle and the Glasshouse Mountains. It's sad that a response is needed to address letters littered with misconceptions and narrow minded judgements. While your concerns are real, they have been directed at the wrong audience at the wrong time. This image was a planned photo shoot that took place in a beautiful setting for the purpose of capturing a moment in time that means something to the riders. The rider’s grandparents lived and worked the land underneath Mt Beerwah some 50 years ago. You've obviously both had bad experiences to put all riders/four-wheel-drives in the same basket, but these people you have labeled as careless vandals have more respect for the flora and fauna, and the area’s history than any local I know! Road registered dirt bikes are welcome in forest areas. The 10 year old simply joined his father for a harmless photo hence the clean bikes and riding gear! Riders don't bash through vegetation, they use pre-existing tracks to ride on. I don't see how illegal dumping is associated with trail bike riders – mattresses, green waste and fridges don't travel too well on a bike nor are bolt cutters carried in packs. Instead of being quick to judge and criticise, plan your concerns more thoroughly because they have left your chosen audience entertained and rolling their eyes. Renee Guthrie Photographer

History Committee

Schools for the Community

Observing the modern educational facilities in Glasshouse Country district, it is interesting to reflect on the schools which past generations attended. Most consisted of only one classroom and a verandah, yet to local families they were an important community centre. There are delightful newspaper stories reflecting the versatile nature of those old school buildings. Many were the parties, concerts, balls, card nights and meetings held in the school room by community groups from surrounding districts. Crohamhurst School, opened in 1913, and was always a small school in terms of enrolment; but its importance to local residents is evident when we read of the many activities held there. This report is from the Chronicle, 11 January 1918: CROHAMHURST, NEW YEAR'S NIGHT ‘On New Year's Eve about sixty of the residents assembled at the State School in response to the invitation by the School Committee for the purpose of ushering in the present year. The building was tastefully decorated with palms and Chinese lanterns and the effect was most charming. The chairman, Mr J. Collins, in a few appropriate words bade the company welcome. Dancing was engaged in upstairs, the music being in the capable hands of Mr Norman Hedges, while Messrs Hume and Otto acted as MCs. Downstairs cards were an attraction, and as the night was warm, were well patronised. At 11 pm that most important of all functions, supper, especially when in the capable and generous dispensation of the ladies was served, and its attractions soon compelled the desertion of the ball room, and silence at the card tables. At midnight a bonfire was lit and its ruddy blaze illumined the grand old hills around, announcing that another year had faded into the past. The company gave expression to their mutual goodwill by joining hands in 'Auld Lang Syne.' ...The company broke up early, as notwithstanding the gaiety of the heart, that inexorable period known as milking time has surely to be taken in account.’ On Sunday, November 5, Peachester History Committee is hosting a Centenary Reunion at the Peachester Hall for Crohamhurst and Commissioner's Flat Schools – an opportunity to get together and share memories of the ‘good old days’ at these two former local schools.

Dine In

with Lea Parkes

The Lookout Cafe

The Lookout Cafe at Glass House Mountains has a lovely intimate feel like you are sitting relaxing on your back verandah catching up with friends (well if you have a back verandah with a truly spectacular view) where time has no meaning and there is none of life’s pressures. While they currently have a very compact kitchen they use every bit of space as creatively as possible and have quite an extensive menu for breakfast, lunch, morning and afternoon tea, which includes vegetarian and gluten free items. One of their most popular lunch items is nachos, but they also do a great beef lasagne with salad, and one of my savoury favourites is their caramelised onion tart. And if I’m just popping in for a coffee with a friend, the Lookout Cafe always has some great

homemade sweet treats in their cake cabinet. While the ladies do a great job in the ‘rather small’ kitchen, they are all looking forward to the cafe undergoing a fabulous renovation / extension. The plan will see their kitchen size dramatically increase as well as having an inside air conditioned dining room for 24, which means they will have double the seating as they do now. If you haven’t already tried the Lookout Cafe – my advice is don’t wait until the renovations are complete – head up now for a chance to enjoy the serenity! And now with less than 100 days to Christmas, as you start planning all your Christmas catch-ups, why not consider the Lookout Café.

The Lookout Cafe

They can cater for a group of up to 30 – but for groups over ten they would encourage you to book a table. Open seven days from 9.00am – 3.00pm during the week and 9.00am – 4.00pm on the weekend. For bookings phone 0498 471 232.

PS For the Lookout's regulars they wish to advise that their proposed renovations / expansion has been delayed and their planned closure during October has been postponed. Once they have a revised start date for the work they will make sure it goes into GCNews.

QPWS reviews Mt Beerwah track safety and ups patrols

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) will review risks at Mt Beerwah in the Glass House Mountains while increasing patrols to ensure compliance with closures now in place. QPWS Regional Director Peter Wright said the Mt Beerwah summit track remained closed since massive landslips in 2009 and 2010. “Geotechnical engineers advised QPWS to continue monitoring the settling of the debris and any changes in stability,” Mr Wright said. “Our monitoring indicated some settling of the debris. We intend to engage engineers again to update our information so we can assess the risks and decide on future management, including any changes to the access. Signage and fencing will also be reviewed. “Some of Mt Beerwah’s rock faces are columnar basalt (volcanic rock), and car-sized boulders can come down, especially after long wet periods. “Anyone who visits Mt Beerwah will see prominent signs warning not to attempt the summit track. Please observe those signs. If you don’t, you put yourself and others at risk and also face a fine of $440. “You can still enjoy the day-use area at the base of this impressive volcanic peak. www.gcnews.com.au

“The Glass House Mountains peaks have many unstable rock faces, and people need to be aware of that when planning a visit, and keep it in mind when walking and climbing. While safety is our first priority, ultimately it’s the visitor’s own responsibility. “This is a dynamic landscape and we continually review visitor sites. “Mt Beerwah summit track is currently the only track that’s closed. However, Mt Coonowrin is completely closed to visitors due to instability. “The Mt Ngungun track has been recently rebuilt with more than $150,000 worth of improvements, but walkers on that track should still wear good shoes – not thongs – and keep a close eye on children. “The 1.4km track to Mt Ngungun’s 253m summit provides spectacular views of the famous Glass House Mountains peaks, as well as the forests, farmland and waterways of the Sunshine Coast,” Mr Wright said. Maps and more information about the Glass House Mountains National Park can be found at www.nprsr.qld.gov.au/parks/glass-housemountains/index.html.

with the Superdads Recently I have had three good friends lose loved ones unexpectedly. While each of those were older people, after coming home from the hospital where I accompanied a mate to see his dad for the last time, I couldn't help but realise how much I take my family for granted. I have three precious kids and of course one gorgeous wife, who looks to me to help maintain a peaceful home and make decisions with their best interests in mind. They also love it when I decide that we are going to do something especially fun for the weekend. When was the last time you spent a day and a night with your kids, one on one? Friday afternoon I packed up the trailer with the dirt bikes, the camping fridge filled with coke, chocolate and chips, and the stretcher bunk beds. As soon as Wil (aged seven) got off the bus I told him to grab his riding gear and jump in the ute.

Ten minutes later we were unloading the bikes at our friend's property at Peachester and having a blast. I'm blessed to have a boy that loves what I love but he knows when I make an effort just for him and he talks about it for weeks to come. It's a little more challenging to think of where to take a 10-year-old daughter, so I let Lucy decide where we go and what we do on our ‘princess for a day’ dates. A full day / night spent with them individually seems to undo the 100 times I've had to nag them that month about any number of things so it's well worth the in investment. Unfortunately many kids are only noticed by their dads when they are doing something wrong. Don't let that be the case in your family and check out the Superdad's website for ideas about how you can be the dad you know you want to be and the dad your kids boast about at school in the lunchtime playground debates. (Remember those ‘my Dad's better than your Dad’ arguments in Year 1?) Later Dads Brendan 0417 757 397 P.S. Checkout the YouTube song ‘If your dad doesn't have a beard you've got two mums!’ Funny stuff. Happy beard growing dads! The Superdads – we are a bunch of guys who love playing music and have formed a band. Their name came from something their guitarist Pete said once… “I don’t just want to be an average dad, I want to be an exceptional dad” – the idea resonated with them.

Andrew Powell State member for Glass House P: 5435 2013 Annual charity cricket match – Saturday, October 5

6 steps to recycling, reusing and reducing waste and saving money Did you know that by organising your ‘rubbish’ you can save time and money?

1

Commit to clearing out cupboards, sheds and garages regularly

2

Separate items into types eg, things that can be sold in the Saturday market, things for recycling, green waste etc.

3

I am pleased to say that for the fourth year running, the annual Andrew Powell celebrity charity cricket match will be held on Saturday, October 5 from 11.30am at Aub Cork Oval in Maleny. If you have ever wanted to see a bunch of grown men battle it out in a game of cricket dressed in their pyjamas, then this is a match not to be missed. On a more serious note, the game will be a tribute to the late, great Maleny resident, Dr Peter Oliver, and all money raised will be donated to the Australian Lung Foundation. A Facebook Events page has been created so just search ‘Peter Oliver Charity Cricket Match’ and check out all of the info. Yet again this year, Maleny locals Trevor and Maree Sommer will be generously donating $50.00 per 6 scored. Guests will be able to purchase drinks from the bar and a barbeque lunch that will be kindly put on by hosts MDSRC – just bring a chair and the family and take some time out to enjoy a great afternoon of social cricket and help the Lung Foundation of Australia while you are at it. Any and all donations are certainly welcome. For information on how you can contribute, please contact gail@mavmuse.com or come along on the day and donate to the Lung Foundation representatives.

Rego label days are numbered

The days of scraping a registration label off the corner of the front windscreen are numbered, following a Newman Government decision to end the stickers. This will result in a more efficient and effective method of registering vehicles and save a considerable amount of money in postage and printing costs. Advances in technology means the detection of unregistered vehicles could be done using number plate recognition, rather than citing a sticker on the front windscreen. Motorists who own light vehicles will start to receive their last sticker before the labels are phased out on October 1, 2014.

Explain to the staff exactly what you have - this makes it much easier for them to calculate the fee, if any

Transport update

Drive away feeling happy you can support your local community and the environment by recycling and reducing waste

Enjoy a clutter-free home!

There has been a hive of activity in Beerwah and Landsborough of late which is very pleasing to see. Work is well underway in Beerwah with the Simpson Street shared pathway upgrade on the railway side, and work has started on the shopfront side of Simpson Street as part of the Streetscape project (a joint project between the State Government and Council). Many of you would have also noticed traffic lights are close to completion at the Steve Irwin Way / Hardwood Road intersection, Landsborough. After community rallying over safety concerns I was able to liaise with the Transport Minister and local Main Roads Department, which resulted in the fast-tracking of these $1.5million traffic lights by up to two years. These lights should be operational in about a month and I will keep you informed of all updates.

Great news for our sporting clubs

Could refinancing help your overall mortgage situation? Just like all large investments, taking the time to check the status and health of your home loan is an important part of ensuring that the original terms and conditions are still applicable to your current situation. After all, as time passes, conditions are bound to change. Perhaps you’re finding yourself beginning to struggle with the amount of your home loan repayments. Or maybe you want to try to secure a more competitive www.gcnews.com.au

interest rate in order to help pay off your mortgage faster. Whatever the state of your home loan, you could consider home loan refinancing in order to help put you and your family in a better, more secure position for the future. Obtaining the perfect mortgage is a combination of having a competitive interest rate, low loan fees and the overall flexibility to alter your loan to suit the fluid, changing nature of life.

However, if there are financial struggles happening in your life, it could be possible to extend the duration of your loan in order to lower your overall monthly repayments. While this could mean you end up paying more in the long run, giving yourself that breathing room could be beneficial by freeing up some money and giving you the opportunity to get through any rough patches. Or you could increase the overall amount that you pay each repayment period, cutting

into your loan in a big way and aid you in becoming debt free faster while helping yourself to save money on interest in the long run. Teresa Harrison Phone 5422 9458 or 0410 648 098

CATHOLIC WEEKEND MASSES

Glasshouse Country Ministers Fellowship Theile Hobbs Suncoast Church Hinterland John and I have always believed (and still do) in celebrating our children, not just their efforts but whom they are as a person. As much as we tried to catch the bad behaviour and discipline accordingly, we also tried to catch our children being good and praise the good behaviour accordingly. We would praise our kids when we saw them doing good things, like sharing, or being kind with each other. Constantly correcting their mistakes is not enough. The truth is, even as adults we don't like to be reminded over and over again of what we are doing wrong. We all need a little kindness everyone likes a pat on the back now and then!

Proverbs says, "Kind words are like honey - sweet to the soul and healthy for the body" (Proverbs 16:24). I love that Proverbs compares kind words to honey! Anyone who knows me, knows I have a very sweet tooth, so I am able to completely relate to the delectable joy that comes with kind words! It's a simple concept, but encouraged people encourage other people. Whether it's a random compliment toward the checkout lady, a text of appreciation to my husband, or an email to a friend I haven't seen in a while, I love spreading kind words around so that they can impact someone who may also be inspired to pay the kindness forward. Being kind has the power to not only make someone's day but to change someone's life! Be kind to someone today!

Tibro’s Netball Club

Tibro’s social ladies competition played at Glasshouse Mountains Sports Club needs a few more players to fill a new team that is forming. It is a great way to exercise and meet new people. Competition starts on October 14. Enquiries to Adrienne 0457 763 247.

Glasshouse Lions AFL Club

Contributed by Craig Bales The club recently held their Junior Presentation Day to cap off a great 2013 season. A great day was had by all, with jumping castles and a velcro sticky wall for the kids as well as presentation of participation awards and trophies. A big congratulations goes to Jack Farrugia who won the Sunshine Coast AFL U12’s “Best and Fairest” award for the League as well as winning the Club Award. And a special mention goes out to all the wonderful volunteers who have helped throughout the year. Without their assistance at training, on game day, or behind the scenes, our club wouldn’t function so smoothly. We look forward to seeing the boys back next year, as well as welcoming new players to our great club!

Beerwah Ladies Golf Club

Contributed by Jenny Kelly More wonderful weather on Thursday brought 70 ladies out to play a Single Stroke event. We were able to play in three divisions and the winner of Division 1 was Mavis Brimelow who came in with a score of 72 Nett. Sue Williamson was runner up on 73 Nett. Mavis won a trophy kindly donated by Monica Dangerfield. Division 2 winner was Fay Wareham who scored a terrific 69 Nett. Teresa Keast, who also had a 69 Nett was unlucky to lose on a count back.

Sharon Phillips generously donated the trophy for Division 2. Winner of Division 3, Kim Thode who came in with a 74 Nett, collected a trophy kindly donated by Leith Barnes. Kim was closely followed by Marjorie Pavitt on 75 Nett. NTP's were won by Cath Cherry on 2, Brenda Briese on 5, Heather Coyle on 16 and Dawn Webster took out the 18th. The ball rundown went to 75 Nett. Let's hope this great weather keeps up. Till next week, stay safe and good golfing.

Contributed by Dennis Hume Monday September 16. Ladies Presidents at Home Day. On this day the Ladies President, hosts her special day, by inviting Lady Presidents from all the other clubs in the District with their teams, as well as the President and Committee of the Caboolture District Ladies Bowls Association. Though the weather was overcast and threatened rain, it was not enough to stop the event taking place. All had a good game of bowls followed by a luncheon which all enjoyed. Though the weather tried, it did not dampen the companionship and game that was enjoyed by all. Wednesday September 18. Ladies Bowls Day. The Ladies Pennant Team played Bribie Island. Glasshouse won one game and lost one. Unfortunately the margin was 11. In the social games of Pairs, Debbie Dale and Brian Larkin def Viv James and Maurie Dawes. Grahame Young and Margaret Lehmann drew with Margaret Porter and Dennis Hume. Thursday September 18. Open Pairs Bowls. Winners were Ron Rix and Graham Nicholson with 2 + 42. Runners up were Clive Sinton and Kerry Capern with + 28 in the First Game. Saturday September 21. In the Club Certified Championship Mixed Pairs the following played in the morning. Kerry Capern and Millie Freshwater def Margaret Lehmann and Gary Lehmann. Chris Freshwater and Brendan Freshwater def Margaret Beasley and Kevin Beasley. Karen Bruce and Rowan Bruce def Ann White and Lindsay Henderson. Rae Farrell and Jimmy Tatum def Dossie Buckley and John McSwain. In the afternoon games Chris and Brendan Freshwater def Kerry Capern and Millie Freshwater. Karen and Rowan Bruce def Joy Reason and Brian Saunders. Wendy and Rod Platt def Rae Farrell and Jimmy Tatum. In the only social match played Troy German, John McSwain and Rob Scullion def John Annakin, Ron Rix and Rob Farrell.

Beerwah Glasshouse United Soccer Club Contributed by Club President John Hesse Bee Gees fielded three teams in the recent Sunshine Coast Football grand finals held at Maroochydore. All three teams played extremely well giving their all and the players can be extremely proud of their efforts. The day kicked off with the Under 15 Girls and Under 17 Boys playing at the same time. This made it difficult for our supporters as they had to switch between both games. Both games finished level at fulltime. The scores were still level after extra time and both games went to penalty shootouts. Unfortunately we fell just short in both games. www.gcnews.com.au

Whilst this was disappointing for the players, they can be very satisfied with their efforts on the day and throughout the season. Our third grand final team was the Under 13 boys. The boys started their match confidently and were on top the whole way through and ran out well deserved winners 2-0. Congratulations boys – well done on the day and a great season. It’s time for a well earned rest now and a chance to get over those niggling injuries. We look forward to seeing everyone back again next season

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 19 Mercury enters Scorpio for three weeks ahead, giving you shrewd insights for professional use or about others secret motivations. Venus and Mars will make you more passionate but that could delve into your career and future goals more than sexual compatibility. Material rewards. PISCES February 20 – March 20 To profit from current opportunities and to have more fun, be willing to step out of your comfort zone. Another trip or adventure might be on the horizon. It is a good idea to sound others out before acting on their behalf. The planets are in a no-bounds fantasy so stay focused. ARIES March 21 – April 20 As we are now coming to the end of September a more low-key energy prevails this week. Try relaxing diversions into art, TV, and music. Not knowing whether to advance or stand your ground sees you in a see-saw mess with the ‘fight or flight’ syndrome. Passions are aroused. TAURUS April 21 – May 21 Now that the Sun sign has entered lovely Libra, it’s a signal to balance your work and pleasure. You are in a strategic position for the end of this month, but still likely to encounter minor obstacles or frustrations. Just be aware of your personal limitations and be quietly persistent.

GEMINI May 22 – June 21 Now that the Sun has entered the sign of Libra from September 23, it opens a new cycle of love, pleasure, and creativity. Mercury, the planet of communication, enters Scorpio adding to your psychological arsenal about how to handle work and daily routines. Secrets revealed. CANCER June 22 – July 22 At the end of this month there is a good connection between Venus and Jupiter that delivers a load of love, pleasure, inner contentment, outer joy, and sensual fulfillment. Perhaps this will be an affectionate romance, a new baby or better recognition at work. Fulfillment of hopes. LEO July 23 – August 22 You may find yourself at the end of this month on a lost crusade as the Sun slides into a misguided action with Neptune and then Mars. All this means that you are not to be a martyr or a victim for a lost cause for another’s unworthy fight. Pull your energy internally to rejuvenate. VIRGO August 23 – September 22 Be careful of getting in over your head where helping other people is concerned. A desire to assist while admirable, can lead you astray down many corridors searching for answers. An amorous encounter can be yours as enchanting Venus and Jupiter makes your world rich with passion.

squealed, "Yes! Yes! I won, I won!" She hugged each of the dealers, picked up her winnings and her clothes and quickly departed. The dealers stared at each other dumbfounded.

An attractive blonde arrived at the casino. She seemed a little intoxicated, and bet $20,000 in a single roll of the dice. She said, "I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I'm completely nude." With that, she stripped from the neck down, rolled the dice and yelled, "come on, baby, mama needs new clothes!" As the dice came to a stop, she jumped up and down and

LIBRA September 23 – October 22 Passions may blaze fiercely but they are more likely to produce conflict than fulfillment. The fight may be about money since Mercury enters Scorpio for three weeks. This will deepen your understanding of finances and how to make money from hidden or shared resources now. SCORPIO October 23 – November 22 At the end of this month, around September 28 there is a high voltage with a Venus / Mars aspect in your chart that can stir passions but also quarrels. Your quest will be to make it to the kiss and make up stage at all costs. As Mercury enters insightful Scorpio you will release fantasies. SAGITTARIUS November 23 – December 22 An emotional Moon takes you out of your intellectual comfort zone for the next few weeks, just turn a sharp eye inward for answers. Insight under Mercury delving into your subconscious fears and doubts will reveal the very best in you. Jupiter / Neptune may possibly inflate hopes. CAPRICORN December 23 – January 19 With a couple of fantasy planets spinning around over your psyche it won’t hurt to ask people to repeat instructions. This is not the week to be self sufficient, give others a chance to enjoy your company. They are eager to include you. Good possibility of a happy relationship beginning.
