Hi Everyone... For the past five years Brownie and I, along with our lovely friends Lottie (the talented knitter) and John (the devoted husband) Nisbett, have spent the last Sunday afternoon in November installing our quirky yarn bombed Christmas tree outside our office. Sadly we are no longer continuing our tradition. Sunshine Coast Council contacted us just before Christmas last year to advise that they had received a complaint from a community member about our use of a council tree. As is the nature of this type of situation, council did not explain what the community member’s specific concerns were. However, the very polite and helpful council officer advised that if we wished to continue doing this we would need to apply for a regulated activity permit. The permit, which is the same as if we were holding a street party, requires us to complete eight pages of questions on 28 individual criteria. There would also be a $258 permit fee, additional public liability insurance and possible fee for council officers to monitor it. For us, decorating the tree has always been a simple way to create a piece of fun festive street art that brings lots of smiles and happy faces to our locals. So with the simple fun gone, we have decided to hang up our knitted baubles for the foreseeable future.

National championships win for Beerwah State High students You may remember the skating York family who featured on the GC&M News front cover on June 19. They were on their way to Barcelona to compete as part of the Australian team in the World Roller Games. It was a successful trip for Kylie, Ken and two of their sons, Jaidyn and Corben, with the boys taking home bronze in the first Australian men’s team, and the women’s team taking home silver. It seems derby success runs in the family for the Yorks with Kylie and Ken’s third son, Deegan, recently competing in the Australian National Roller Derby Championships with the Queensland junior team. Deegan and fellow Beerwah State High School student, Jenna Hetaraka, were part of the squad who, after taking out the win, are now Australian Junior Roller Derby Champions. Deegan is hoping to make the Australian junior team competing at the Junior Roller Derby World Cup in Canada next year. Deegan and Jenna both train with local Sunshine Coast league club, Coastal Junior Roller Derby, and Kylie and Jenna Hetaraka and Deegan York

York family from Beerwah Ken, Jaidyn, Kylie and Corben

Ken are both coaches with the club. Kylie says it is a fantastic sport for teenagers to get involved with as it can be incredibly empowering for young people to play a full contact sport. “It’s hard hitting, compassionate, strategic, inclusive and so much fun,” Kylie said. “As a coach we see many shy kids, or kids that don’t fit in to the regular mould, blossom and grow once they begin their roller derby journey. “There is no other sport like it, where an entire family can play a full contact sport at the same time, regardless of age." Plus, she adds cheekily, “it is a little bit badass”.

Rick Baberowski is the sitting councillor in Division 1 and was first elected in 2012. “I first stood for council because of the avalanche of development coming to our area,” Rick said. “There was a real threat that our local businesses would be devastated by competition from the new town centres, the first of which is now built in Baringa. “To help meet this challenge, each term I have aimed to win council support for a transformational masterplan and streetscape upgrade for one of our towns.” In his first term, Rick delivered a successful rejuvenation of Beerwah’s town centre. “This term, I fought for a similar project for Landsborough and in the recent budget I succeeded in having allocated a $4 million upgrade of Cribb Street, which will begin in February. “Additionally, proposed future stages will create a heritage precinct around Landsborough Museum and upgrading of the other side of the rail line.” Rick says that, if re-elected, his biggest goal will be securing a similar project for Glass House Mountains and he believes Glass House could be the region’s most beautiful country town. “Residents should get the chance to design a future for their town that fulfills its potential," he said. Rick is proud of his results this term – the District Park in Glass House, the Beerwah Aquatic Centre refurbishment, Turner Park rejuvenation, Beerburrum’s new trailhead and the Landsborough dog park.

“Next term I will fight for an extension to Beerwah Library with new meeting rooms, a fantastic park in Peachester delivering the community’s vision, a rail-totrail network across Glasshouse Country, a new festival site to boost tourism, and many more projects,” Rick said. “But our area’s potential is threatened if we allow unconstrained development to destroy our towns’ country character. “Council makes a new planning scheme every eight years. The next one is just after the election. I want to use my experience from eight years as a councillor to ensure it works for us. I was recently successful in amending the current planning scheme to create a new requirement for larger lot sizes for many local residential developments. “Next planning scheme, I’ll advocate further changes. For example, I would strengthen our weak local area plans so that when assessing development applications council could take more account of factors like local character, not just zoning. Let’s protect our way of life.” rick.baberowski@gmail.com 0487 648 809

Innovative Caloundra interchange opens In an Australian first, the Bruce Highway–Caloundra Road redevelopment is poised to be a functional diverging diamond interchange (DDI) any day now. DDIs have been used in almost 100 locations worldwide, the majority in the United States, reportedly with great success. This innovative design is cost effective because it minimises the project footprint requiring fewer bridges and roads, while tackling congestion, enhancing capacity and improving safety. After a long period of watching, waiting and looking at maps and illustrations, locals will now able to see for themselves how the traffic flow system works. The DDI at Caloundra Road uses synchronised traffic signals, line marking and signage to guide motorists through the interchange. Motorists will have to keep their wits about them as the interchange system involves temporarily driving on what would seem to be the wrong side of the road.

The traffic signals will seamlessly direct cars to cross from the left side of the road carriageway to the right as they go over the interchange, then switch back to the left. The decision to use this DDI approach reduced the clearing of the Beerwah State Forest from 24 hectares down to only eight hectares. And there’s more to come. Over the next 12 months, the project team says it will progressively construct and open other components of the interchange, which will include a number of changes to the entry and exit lanes to and from the highway. It is expected - weather permitting - that the DDI will be fully functional in late 2020. To see more about the project, take a look at the Transport and Main Roads project webportal www.tmr.qld.gov.au/brucehwycaloundra2sunshinemwy. It has a link to a great fly-over video showing the final road system and how it will operate.

The Glass House Mountains Quarry Collective is a new recently formed group of individuals from all walks of life who care about their local community and have a range of interests including land care, animal care, protection of natural heritage, and environmental and historical care. Group spokesperson Megan Standring said the group was "not looking to see the quarry close". "However, we are interested in there being transparency and openness between Hanson Glasshouse Quarry and the local community," Megan said. “With an ever-growing local population, we see that careful and thoughtful decisions need to be made for the benefit of all.” On Monday, November 11 a meeting was held with representatives of Hanson Glasshouse Quarry's public relations company CPR, Cr Rick Baberowski and members of the collective at the yarning circle on the Tibrogargan track. Megan said a range of issues were tabled including the safety and comfort of the community and its visitors in relation to the movement of quarry trucks through Glass House Mountains, with new housing developments and increased tourists and visitors to the area potentially increasing risks. “There is also concern over a future increase in the tonnage the quarry may want to produce and the impacts that could have," she said.

Hinterland Body & Soul

“The corner of Coonowrin Road and Old Gympie Road is a turning hotspot, and the collective members were pleased to hear that after 15 months of discussions with Hanson, Cr Baberowski informed us that the intersection will be upgraded. “This is extremely good from a safety view point and will be beneficial for the truck drivers when this work is completed." Megan said that recently the quarry's blast intensities "have been a real bone of contention", particularly for residents who live close to the quarry. “Despite Hanson arranging a fairly comprehensive presentation by their blasting company, Orica, with much data tabled, the interpretations and experiences of local community of the blast noise and vibration differs from the data," she said. “The fragility of Mt Coonowrin worries many of the collective’s members and preserving the cultural significance and heritage-listed Glass House Mountains should be a priority for all industry and community members. “A previous geological report highlights some potential weakness in Coonowrin and the consulting company CPR intend to further examine this report with the view of a further investigation by the relevant government department," Megan said. Local residents who would like to make contact with the collective can email quarrycollective@gmail.com or join the group on Facebook by searching Quarry Collective.

Vale Ivon Northage

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

7 July 1931 - 12 November 2019 A true legend of Glasshouse Country, Ivon was well known to locals and visitors alike for his years of tireless service volunteering at the Glass House Mountains Visitor Information Centre and his "damn good fruit cake", as well as his wellreceived book, ‘The National Heritage Listed Glasshouse Mountains’, now in its third edition. A funeral service was held at Gregson & Weight Caloundra on Friday, November 22 attended by family, friends and neighbours as well as fellow volunteers from the visitor information centre and elected representatives from the area - Division 1 councillor Rick Baberowski, state Member for Glass House Andrew Powell and federal Member for Fisher Andrew Wallace. Friend and book collaborator Roger Reilly and Mr Wallace both gave heartfelt tributes to Ivon and his passion and pride for the local area and community, praising his considerable achievements with the book. Ivon was born Edward Ivon Northage on July 7, 1931. In 1992, Ivon and his family moved to Glass House Mountains and in 2002 Ivon started volunteering with Sunshine Coast tourist information centres. Ivon will be remembered for his huge pride in Australia and the Glasshouse Country region and for his legacy in leaving his terrific book on all aspects of the heritage listed Glass House Mountains.

During his reign as the king of visitor information, he was called on to provide informative and training talks to volunteers and council staff at different centres and also to various school and community groups. He was especially interested in the geology of the mountains with a great passion for the topic and was thrilled when the Glass House Mountains were National Heritage listed in 2006. Armed with numerous pages of handwritten notes and utilising an old laptop, Roger and Ivon set to work compiling and formatting Ivon’s years of research, with the first edition of the book published in March 2018. Just before Ivon died, the third edition was printed. Roger said Ivon wanted to make sure the last edition of the book was as accurate as he could make it. “This was the nature of the man - he needed to see accuracy, consistency and loved the formality of the research and he also cared deeply about the visitors, the mountains and the Glasshouse Country where he lived.” Roger said Glasshouse Country had lost one of its finest advocates, and while there were many such people, Ivon was the longest serving and most consistent supporter and promoter of the National Heritage listed Glass House Mountains.

Helen Manson

After a couple of decades helping oversee the Beerburrum Hall, its hirers and history, tireless community volunteer and Beerburrum local Helen Manson has decided to hang up her hat. Her years of service and dedication were honoured recently at the Beerburrum Hall’s community Christmas event. GC&M News thought it would be wonderful to find out a little more about Helen and her involvement with the Beerburrum School of Arts Association over the years. Q: Can you tell us about yourself and your involvement in the Beerburrum area? A: My family moved to Beerburrum from Brisbane in 1973, which was the best decision ever made. Six months after I took up residence here, I was offered a job at the local school. I was the very first aide to be employed at Beerburrum School where I worked as a library aide. I also taught students swimming, with departmental approval, at our local motel at the time called The Woodbadge Motel, which back then had a 20m pool. I worked at the school for about 13 years. I also taught swimming in Glasshouse Mountains, Beerwah, Peachester and Maleny, and my children swam for the Caboolture Swimming Club and I did some refereeing. For the past 30 years I have been a Justice of the Peace, which I love. Q: What other work have you been involved with? A: For many years I was the secretary/manager of the Ashgrove RSL and when I retired I volunteered to help people with their tax returns for many years. I have also been involved for many years as a director at Glasshouse Country Care.

Q: When did you first get involved at Beerburrum Hall? What did you do? A: Like many other residents I served on both the School P&C and Beerburrum Hall committees. I also taught ladies fitness at our beautiful hall. All in all, I’d say I’ve been involved in some way with the hall for more than 25 years. Over the years, community members have always volunteered their time towards the cleaning, grounds and Helen Manson receives a plaque to acknowledge her maintenance of the hall – their contribution to the Beerburrum Hall from Ron Ratcliffe generosity and community spirit has kept the hall running.

Community News Saved from scissor beak

By Sonia Clark Parrots in Paradise bird sanctuary volunteer Dot Gauntlett contacted GC&M News recently to let us know one of their blue and gold baby macaws, Kittunga, needed an operation to have a birdie brace fitted to help fix her scissor beak condition. Also known as crossed beak, the condition is a physical deformity where the upper and lower portions of the beak grow in different directions and do not line up, which left untreated would make eating and drinking very difficult and could lead to starvation. Sanctuary director Dail Malins said seven-week old Kittunga’s surgery had gone really well and, while a bit subdued, the patient was doing fine. Dail said that in the years that she had run the Glass House Mountains sanctuary she had never come across the condition. “One of our young volunteers picked up the name of the condition and so I Googled more about it and contacted Associate Professor Bob Doneley, head of the avian and exotic pet service at the University of Queensland’s veterinary medical centre at Gatton for help. As one of only five specialists in Australia in bird medicine, Dr Bob is one of the very best in the country, so I knew Kittunga was in good hands,” Dail said. Dail made the nearly six-hour round trip to Gatton recently so Kittunga could be admitted to hospital for her overnight stay. Dail said that she and her team of volunteers were passionate about their duty of care for their avian charges and there was no question that they

The couple has excellent backgrounds to run a health retreat and wedding venue, as Mark is an accomplished performer and Lisa has impressive credentials in the health and wellbeing industry. The council's town planning report states that only one activity would be held at any one time at Mali Retreat, with weddings at weekends and health retreats during the week. It also suggests existing buildings on the site will be repurposed with only minor building works required. The plans show the glamping area will cater for ten tent sites, with a new secondary residence to be constructed close to the main entrance off Crohamhurst Road. As the plans involve utilising existing structures and open space areas, the plans show no vegetation needs to be cleared and minimal earthworks required. To read more about Lisa and Mark’s plans, go to https://developmenti.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au and search for MCU19/0292.

Croquet president retires

Contributed by Ken Barker After 22 years of sterling service in the role of president of the Range Croquet Club, Vince Carbery retired as club president at the club’s recent AGM. During that time he has undertaken a range of activities including mentoring and coaching new players, refereeing games, maintaining the lawns and generally helping the club. Along with his wife Val he managed both the interclub and intraclub tournaments. The senior player of the club for many years, Vince is a stalwart of the interclub pennants team (the Lochwood Shield) and won it in 2003 when he and Val were the only representatives in that division, winning the sporting team of the year in the Maleny sporting awards by doing so. In the term of Vince’s presidency, our club has either alone or in combination with other small clubs, won the Lochwood Shield seven times a great achievement for a small club. Vince has excellent links with the broader Maleny community having been a teacher at Maleny State School for many years. He is, or has been, active in many other organisations - Meals on Wheels, Navy Cadets, helping at the River School and officiating in the poultry section at the annual Maleny Show. Vince leaves the club presidency to spend more time with his family. Sarah Widin, his successor, will be happy to have his help and guidance as he moves into the positions of vice president and assistant to the club captain. If he had been hoping for rest it seems he’ll still be pretty busy with the club, where his wry sense of humour will continue to be welcome along with advice and assistance with everything from the lawns to the playing of a particular shot. Grateful thanks from club members go to Vince for his help, guidance and friendship along with best wishes for the future. Vince and Val receiving a token of the club members’ appreciation from Sarah Widin (centre) at the AGM

Performance poetry book for everyone

Maleny poet and storyteller ‘Irish’ Joe Lynch has just had his collection of poems and illustrations published. Released at the end of last month, ‘An Seánchaí, The Storyteller’ is full of poetry bursting with romance, beauty and vivid colour. Joe said being born in County Cork, an area steeped in the ancient Celtic art of storytelling and music, he was influenced by the great Irish poets like WB Yeats and Oscar Wilde to create his very own unique brand of spoken word or performance poetry. “This book contains poems of passion, fire and wonder, romance and intrigue as well as hope and inspiration,” Joe said. Having made Australia his home, Joe has continued to travel extensively performing his stories and poems at major Australian music festivals like Woodford and the National Folk Festival. Joe’s book is available at Rosetta’s Books, Maleny. For more information visit www.irishjoelynch.com.

Integrated approach to treating thyroid disease

Thyroid disease such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis can be incredibly confusing and frustrating, especially when you’re trying to figure out the step-by-step action plan that will work best for you. Kaz from Soulqi understands that the modern healthcare environment can be hard to navigate, especially with so much conflicting advice. She believes that if people can understand the main difference between the standard approach and the integrative approach to treating this disease that this may offer guidance towards reducing symptoms and allowing people to get their lives back on track. Kaz says many conventional physicians check only for serum thyroid status and often fail to check for serum thyroid antibodies. The conventional approach (most often used by endocrinologists and family practice physicians) adopts a wait-and-see approach, which involves testing of TSH and free T4 levels until eventually levels become abnormal and thyroid medication is prescribed often indefinitely. Kaz offers an alternative approach that integrates education, dietary guidance and lifestyle changes. She advocates for a course of acupuncture, Chinese herbs and supplementation. “Diet is perhaps one of the most effective ways to address immune function and treat Hashimoto’s and certain supplements can also be used to potentially improve thyroid disease and bolster the immune system. Stress reduction and evaluation of gut function is also important,” Kaz said. If you’d like to find out more, Kaz has posted helpful and informative information on her Soulqi Acupuncture and Massage Facebook page. Otherwise give her a call on 5439 0094 and take charge of your health today.

Keeping healthy and happy over the holidays Christmas is a joyous time to gather with family and friends to celebrate what is important in life. Also, for many, the lead up to Christmas can be a busy time, leaving us feeling rushed and stressed. On top of our regular daily routines, we’re preparing for Christmas in multiple ways – food, holidays, guests, presents. Denese Brookes, owner of The Healthy Guru, says that actively maintaining your health at this time of year is really important and while it can seem obvious to do so, sometimes our self-care needs a little more attention. “Taking time to slow down and enjoy this time of year is easier said than done but it’s important to occasionally stop and take some time, re-gather your thoughts and remind ourselves to enjoy this time of year,” Denese said. “Something as simple as stopping and focussing on breath can help with the feeling of becoming overwhelmed.” To avoid taking on too much of a mental load, Denese encourages communicating with family and friends and delegating tasks where possible. By not taking on too many extra tasks, it can be a much more enjoyable time of year for everyone. “This time of year is often tiring for the whole family,

with many feeling a bit drained from a big year,” she said. “We stock a wide range of natural supplements that can help the whole family.” To help with stress and tiredness, The Healthy Guru has a large range of supplements, including magnesium for relaxing muscles and traditional Chinese formulas that can assist with feelings of anxiety and stress. The Fusion and Herbs of Gold range are some of the store’s best sellers. To help maintain a healthy nervous system, it’s important to replenish b-vitamins as these get used up by stress on the body. Denese also says vitamin C is one of the most underrated vitamins for helping manage symptoms and overall health and, with much anticipation, she has recently stocked a range of wild vitamin C products. The team at The Healthy Guru would love to help make your busy Christmas run that little bit smoother, and are happy to chat to you about products or services that can help you enjoy this Christmas. While you’re in store, check out their wide range of gift options and, of course, Guru vouchers, and take care of your Chrissy shopping by giving the gift of health this Christmas.

When your child has diabetes

*

By Sonia Clark Students at Peachester State School donned blue on Thursday, November 14 to raise awareness for World Diabetes Day and to bolster their support for students with type 1 diabetes, Sam McIntyre and Liam Wild. The boys’ mums, Nicole McIntyre and Kylie Wild, shared some of their insights about what it was like to be the parent of a child with type 1 diabetes, as well as highlighting the importance of monitoring the vital 4T early signs of diabetes - toilet, tired, thirsty, thinner. Nicole said when Sam started prep at four years of age he had already been diagnosed with diabetes for two years and was hypo-unaware, which meant he could not tell when his blood sugar was too low (hypoglycaemia) and he would become unconscious and at times had seizures. Sam is now at the end of year 6 and Nicole is pleased that he no longer has unconscious episodes at school and, remarkably, Sam’s time at school has been reasonably uneventful. “Many people do not understand the challenges that face a child with type 1 diabetes. If their blood sugar level (BSL) drops too low they have a hypo, which causes the brain to shut down ultimately resulting in becoming unconscious and in some, having seizures. "If their BSL becomes too high they become really thirsty, nauseated, start vomiting and, if prolonged, can lapse into a coma,” Nicole said. Diabetes has not made life easy for Sam but since he was so young when diagnosed it has put him in the unique position of being able to support other kids when they have been diagnosed, including most recently Liam Wild who was in prep when diagnosed last year. Kylie said that when Liam was first diagnosed it was such an overwhelming time for the family trying to get their heads around counting carbs and checking BSLs - including through the night. Now, 18 months later, Kylie is amazed at how far they have come and how much they have learnt about managing the auto-immune disease. "Some days are tough and some days are victorious but we are blessed to live in an area with such a great support network through school, friends and family,” Kylie said. Nicole said they had been privileged to experience the generosity and support of the Peachester school staff, students and families and the bravery and friendship of fellow students with diabetes such as Liam. For that she and her family are eternally grateful.

New chapter for local family-owned jewellers In 2020 Jim and Sandra Goulton, owners of Maleny and Beerwah Jewellers, will celebrate 20 years of business. With this significant milestone comes a new chapter for the local family-owned jewellers as they have decided to consolidate their business into one store. With the lease on the Beerwah store coming up for renewal and after careful thought and consideration, the couple have decided to close the Beerwah business and focus on the Maleny store where they hope to entice their clients to come up the hill and be cared for at their Maple Street store in the new year. Sandra said it was coming up to five years since the business started operating in Beerwah and it had been a wonderful opportunity to get to know the Glasshouse Country locals, extend their business model and share their love of all things shiny, sparkly and gorgeous as well as offering Jim’s immensely creative talents in design, remodelling and repair work. Working between both stores the couple had to juggle their family and work commitments and after careful consideration they decided to focus all their energy on their Maleny business to give them more time with their family and to allow them to fully concentrate on one business. “We feel this will be a wonderfully positive new chapter for our business that will be great for us as a family and even better for our clients as we will be able to invest all our energy into one store. As a creative, Jim will have more time to do what he loves, which is to create unique, bespoke and one-off designs, and not be running between two stores means he’ll have more time on the bench,“ Sandra said.

The award-winning businesses are part of the Showcase Jewellers group and earlier this year Sandra and Jim were thrilled to be named finalists in the group's 2019 Retailer of the Year award. With over 200 stores throughout Australia and New Zealand, the couple were one of only three finalists, which marked a significant achievement and wonderful validation of their work and customer focus.

“One of the big advantages of belonging to the Showcase Jewellers group is that we can offer competitive prices because of their combined buying power. We select all our pieces and this is great for our clients as we have some absolutely stunning pieces at surprisingly affordable prices,” Sandra said. She wanted to let their Beerwah clients know that all the Beerwah team would be joining them at the Maleny store. “We’d love our Beerwah clients to come up and spend some time with us at our Maleny store. There is so much to see and do, as well as great coffee and some amazing shops and cafés if you feel like making a day of it,” she said. Jim and Sandra are childhood sweethearts who met when they were both at Maleny High School. The couple have been together since they were 16 years old and as well as running awardwinning businesses have three children who also attend school in Maleny. Jim is also an awardwinning jeweller and said the refocussing of their business model will allow him to concentrate more on his design work. “I am looking forward to having more quality family time, as well as more time to explore my creativity as an in-house jeweller. I love being able to channel my inspiration into creating pieces that beautifully incorporate metals and precious stones together artistically and uniquely,” Jim said. Keep an eye out for some incredible closing store specials. For more details visit www.malenyjewellers.com.au.

The kindness of Maleny locals has shone through with a wonderful response to the call for donations of preloved handbags/cloth shopping bags filled with toiletries to be dropped off at Imelda’s on Maple and Simply Stylish for the farmers of the Granite Belt. Donations are still being accepted until December 11. Just fill a bag with toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, or shaving cream, aftershave, men’s deodorant, maybe a chocolate or two and, most important of all, a hand-written card expressing your love and caring thoughts for a lovely lady or lad. Thanks also to Maleny Dairies, which has come on board and donated a family pass with each of these care bags. You can also drop donation bags at Maleny Dairies if that is more convenient for you.

You Said It Maleny Show 2020

The annual Maleny Agricultural Show will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 29-30, 2020. As has been common practice for many years, Friday will be a public holiday for residents and businesses in the area previously recognised as Caloundra City Council. Organising and preparing the grounds for your show is a major project and a large number of dedicated volunteers are involved. In preparation for the 2020 show we will be making many changes and improvements to the grounds and also to the show program. Anybody wishing to become a show volunteer will be welcomed into the show family. Involvement can range from helping on a regular or intermittent basis to prepare the ground facilities during the next six months, to assisting as a steward at the show, particularly in the areas of handicrafts, photography and cheese or even volunteering to help with the general running of a successful show. Anyone interested in assisting the show family, or just wanting to find out more about what is involved in running Maleny Show, can contact me on 0428 995 499. All sponsorship, advertising and other general enquiries are very welcome. Winston Johnston President Maleny Show Society

Proposed homemaker centre

As the owner of a local home repair and property maintenance business servicing the hinterland, Beerwah and Glasshouse Country areas for over 10 years, I find the daily struggle to access items to conduct repairs in a timely manner very frustrating. I may need something as simple as a doorhandle, gyprock, cornicing or flooring and the list goes on of items unavailable locally. This means a trip to Bunnings at Morayfield or Caloundra - an hour round trip out of my working time plus time to go in and purchase items. Not to mention vehicle expenses! Obviously if I know what is required for the job I purchase prior with one trip to Bunnings but with callout jobs this is not always a possibility. How do I justify charging the client extra because I have to travel to get his door handle? I would price myself out of the market. I do try to support local businesses but unfortunately they don’t always carry what I need. A one-stop hardware store isn’t going to detrimentally impact on stores that carry limited ranges of items but it certainly will help little local family businesses like myself to operate more effectively and also will provide extensive employment opportunities for people of all ages. Please consider this before you turn away progress. The area is growing and we need more businesses to keep people shopping here. C Donnelly Glass House Mountains

Re: Homemaker centre

Sooner the better! We can’t develop new housing estates enticing young families and not be developing services. I always try to shop local but, I’m sorry, so many items are not available locally. I resent having to travel in traffic to the coast or Brisbane because selection is so limited here. We need to expand to warrant the infrastructure so badly needed. Let’s prove to them we are worth it. J Martin Beerwah

Development for Beerwah

I was very interested to read in GC&M News (November 27) the comments from local business representatives regarding the proposed homemaker centre in Beerwah. The fracturing of Beerwah began with the development of the Beerwah Marketplace. This was the breakdown of the traditional, country town format. 22

CONDITIONS Please keep your letters under 300 words, your name, address and daytime phone number must be supplied. Letters must focus on issues and not be personal attacks on individuals. Letters may be edited.

As a resident for over 30 years I can remember there were empty shops in various parts of town then also. While it might be nice to think that people would drive off Steve Irwin Way "to explore" our town, the reality is that we are just another town with a railway station. We do not have any historic buildings of note and no unique attractions. There are no shops in their original buildings, Wimberley's Drapery is past history and our original community hall is unrecognisable as an historic building. Beerwah is moving forwards with its suburban residential developments and unprecedented high density dwellings. We are no longer a rural country town. We are a commuter town and must supply the needs of an ever growing demographic. If we want our residents to stop going to the coast to shop then we must have a greater diversity of retail outlets right here. No more damage can be done to Beerwah’s image. It has already been done. C Forrester Beerwah

Re: Racing industry

There has been quite uproar about the killing of retired racehorses. Any animal that can't pay its way is, and always has been, treated this way. What else can we do with them? Let them "join the wild bush horses"? The assumed villain, Meramist, is a pet food factory. Pet food only grows on trees on April first. If you or family or friends have a dog or cat, don't complain about where pet food comes from. Better to eat the unusable horses than have the pets kill our remaining wildlife. Of course, the people in the racing industry know what happens to excess stock. It’s part of every business. It's called recycling and has never been considered a dark side. That has only come about by television stations causing a ruckus in a desperate bid for ratings. And when they come up with an "exclusive" report, we know they have paid someone for it, so it's not news, it's just a story, like something you find on Facebook. Dick Francis, who was the Queen Mother's jockey for many years, says in his books that the bolt is absolutely the most humane way to kill an animal as it is high speed, causing an instant, bloodless, painless death. The horse doesn't know what happened. If you want to stop the killing of unwanted horses, start getting rid of the dogs and cats, and get your backyard ready with stables and drinking troughs. Fred Gee Elimbah

Planning for the future

Two letters in the November 20 edition of GC&M News criticised council for “ignoring” questions about the transport levy. Contrary to the points they raised, I have explained the transport levy before, both in GC&M News and at local public meetings. Council also produces a public annual report on how the levy is spent, which is available on the council’s website, in our local libraries or by asking my office. Hardly the secret conspiracy these letters imply. The transport levy does not fund the coast’s regular bus or train routes. That is a state government responsibility (and would cost much, much more than the current levy). The main purpose of the transport levy is to build funds to make a major rail project happen, like the Gold Coast Council did by spending $100 million on its light rail. Some critics repeat that they pay the transport levy and don’t receive many services for it. They’re right – nobody does currently. That’s not its purpose. The money is being saved in a specific fund for when it’s needed to

SEND TO: editorial@gcnews.com.au PO Box 99, Beerwah 4519

make a truly transformational project happen. Given that all of the proposed rail projects (fast, heavy or light) eventually connect to the main line at Beerwah, such a project will be fantastic for Glasshouse Country residents. Smaller amounts are also used on some secondary purposes, for example, upgrading infrastructure like bus stops, providing Flexilink cab services for under-serviced hinterland areas like the PeachesterBeerwah route, and providing council link door-todoor cabs for seniors and people with disabilities. Let’s absolutely have a debate if you think we shouldn’t be doing those things, or that the levy should be increased to take on other projects and services. But let’s drop the bogus accusations of secrecy. Cr Rick Baberowski Sunshine Coast Council

Climate change and bushfires

I agree with Sel Hopley’s sagely point (GC&M News, November 13) that the Sun is the primary driver of our climate and weather. It heats and cools in regular cycles and its output can change substantially over time. Its impact on our climate is measured in tree rings going back thousands of years and has been demonstrated to be a factor in the rise and fall of civilisations going back to antiquity and beyond. Obviously there is a lot of focus currently on CO2 and its alleged impact on our climate, trace gas that it is, but I believe it is a passing scientific fad. Regarding the current bushfire situation and the present crisis, we can only hope focus will increase on the techniques developed by the traditional owners of this place over thousands of years. One of their achievements was to largely prevent catastrophic bushfires. The wildlife would have thanked them. Their fire management practices not only brought on new grass for kangaroos and wallabies but reduced regrowth as documented in Bill Gamage’s book ‘The World’s Greatest Estate’. Many early white fella explorers confronted a savanna/ parkland-like landscape in open country and valleys. The future of the koala and other vulnerable species may hinge on a balance between over-clearing and under-clearing and a reappraisal of state vegetation management laws, current laws in some cases have done more harm than good particularly when it comes to fires. Meanwhile in Europe, a big freeze is coming on and this winter is expected to be the coldest in 130 years. November snow and cold records are already tumbling in America. Many scientists link this to cyclical solar cooling. Jon Woodlands Cambroon

Living - Music New Country Music Club kicks off this Sunday

By Sonia Clark A brand new Country Music Club will kick off this Sunday and lovers of both types of music - country and western - are encouraged to come along and try the open mike session. Hosted by the Maleny Cultural and Historical Society music group and promoted by local music legend Harvey Bryce, interested performers can just rock up from 12noon-4pm on Sunday, December 8 to the Maleny Pioneer Village to strut, strum or sing their stuff. Harvey said the inaugural event would be basically a walk-up session where people can put their names down on a blackboard to perform. He said a backing band would be available and the new music group was age friendly (aged 10+). “We’ve been running our ukulele club on Mondays and found it was so successful we thought it’d be great to encourage people to come along and try a session with other instruments such as guitars or banjos. It really is all about providing another social gathering opportunity and to be able to listen to and support other artists,” Harvey said. A talented musician who has been playing since the 1960s, Harvey is also well known for his involvement with numerous ukulele events and the Maleny Music Muster. Harvey said he was keen to promote and encourage local talent and for those wanting to learn more, music lessons for beginners were available. This will be a regular monthly event in 2020, to be held on the second Sunday of the month, with light refreshments available. The Maleny Pioneer Village is located in Bryce Lane, Maleny. There are plans to include a barbeque lunch at next year’s sessions. All inquiries to Harvey Bryce on 5494 4220 or 0427 944 220.

Music Today Music and bushfires

No, they have nothing in common, but given the terror that has been threatening us these last few months even musicians might be talking about what we can do to minimise them continuing. It is being expressed clearly by others who do know what they are talking about - we need to be committing to real support for Indigenous land management and Rural Fire Services, and it means urgent climate action with no new coal, oil or gas projects. We must have 100% renewable energy and exports by 2030, and funding for a just transition and jobs for fossil fuel workers and communities. OK, that seems pretty clear to many, if not most of us, and if plenty of us say it often enough and loud enough it can happen! But what about music and what can musicians do? We can run benefit concerts and will do so (but we always have a bit of a giggle calling on the poorest earners in the world artists - to sponsor these events). So what else can musicians do? Artists have always expressed their grief through the composition of great works. Some of the most powerful and moving pieces we enjoy today came from a place of great pain. As one example, consider Gustav Mahler’s 'Kindertotenleider', composed in 1904 to the poetry of Ruckert. This work can be directly translated as songs on the death of children. It was a theme every parent knew only too well in the period before modern science turned those statistics around. Mahler himself lost eight of his siblings during childhood and his own daughter died at four. So yes, we can commission our artists to create work inspired by the horror of bushfires. That is what musicians can and should do and we ought to facilitate it happening. It is money well spent. Can we take our music to the scene of the fires? Imagine returning to a site laid low by fire some time later and commemorating what died there with fitting music - a peace offering to the earth. And perhaps we are ready to recognise that what died there provided the opportunity for the birth of something new. Out of every end there is a beginning. Ultimately, do these experiences bring us closer together as a community? Are they also important for helping us truly value the love we have deep inside for our fellow human beings? Mahler’s last song in his cycle is called 'What Love Tells Me'. Musically he is saying to us that death is powerful but love is even stronger. Michael has a recording studio in Peachester.

Community carols The Glasshouse Country Community Carols come to town on Saturday, December 14. Entertainment starts at 4.30pm with musicians and dance, then the carols stage show starts at 6.30pm. The carols are organised by the Landsborough School of the Arts Memorial Hall and proudly sponsored by council. With last year’s carols cancelled due to weather, everyone is anticipating this year’s event, so dress in your festive finest, grab a picnic blanket, pack some chairs, and gather your family and friends to attend this free community event.

Cribb Street Placemaking Streetscape It was a great pleasure to attend the Cribb Street Placemaking Streetscape launch on Friday, November 8. The $3.6 million Landsborough placemaking project is a strategically important project and the community (over 800 of them) has been brilliantly on the front foot, working collaborative with council’s placemaking team. This council placemaking project will ensure our fabulous country town of Landsborough continues to be a great residential community while becoming a stronger destination for both locals and visitors alike.

Rubber hits the road Each year, about 450,000 tonnes of tyres are disposed of across Australia. Sadly, only 9% of these are currently being recycled. I am pleased to announce that as part of its road reseal program, council is trialling a new technique using recycled tyres in the maintenance of roads across the region. The first road to trial this new technique is the Beerburrum-Woodford Road, Beerburrum. How does it work? We take a crumb rubber binder made from 100% recycled Australian tyres and mix this with bitumen and asphalt for use in spray sealing and asphalt works. It’s fantastic to be able to improve our road network with recycled products.

Kids' holiday activities With the fantastic variety of great playgrounds in Division 1, we are spoilt for choice! Just to name a few, we have the amazing Turner Park in Beerwah with its new and unique design, 8.5m tall multi-level play tower, shelters, toilets and barbecue area. This playground has something for most age groups. The Skippy Park playground in Landsborough includes new balance logs in the nature play area, climbing net, sand top up and new turf. Another amazing playground fairly recently upgraded is Pioneer Park, an all-abilities playground at Landsborough. Also keep tuned for news on stages five and six of the Glass House Mountains District Park due for completion in December.

State Member for Caloundra Beerwah and District RSL Sub Branch thank community for supporting bid for new home

Earlier this year I was proud to make a $2,000 donation to the men and women of the Beerwah and District RSL Sub Branch and help them launch their fundraiser for the final monies required to build a new facility to run their programs. I first met with the sub branch in October 2017 to discuss the difficulties they faced but it was clear at the time that members had not lost their spirit or enthusiasm for the important work of supporting veterans and their families. The sub branch secured a parcel of land at the Beerwah Sportsground complex and in early 2019 were on the home stretch of raising the final funds needed to allow construction of a suitable premises and connection to electricity and water. In September the sub branch learned they had been successful in their grant application from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund round 101 to the tune of $20,335. This grant coupled with the significant community support shown over the past few months has seen the sub branch reach their fundraising target. I spoke with president John Nesbitt about reaching their target and what would come next. Here's what he told me: “First, I want to thank everyone in the Beerwah and the greater Sunshine Coast community for their ongoing help and support of our fundraising efforts. Funds raised through our sales of badges, donations and Bunnings barbeques have increased significantly since the community were made aware of our plans to construct a new shed. “To update the community on the next steps of the sub branch since the grant was received: The grant was taken in under the Beerwah Sportsground Management Committee because we are not incorporated. They will oversee the building process through the management of the grant funds. “Now that we have reached our financial target, a building application has been lodged with the Sunshine Coast Council and we are awaiting approval before we can break ground on the shed. We anticipate that we will receive an answer early in the New Year. “Thank you again for all your support and we will keep the community informed of the progress,” John said. A great outcome for the sub branch with their fundraiser and to those in our community returned service men and women and their families - who will benefit from the programs that will be offered once the shed is built. I will work closely with John and the sub branch to keep the community informed of how this project is progressing.

Season’s greetings As this is my last column for the year, I would like to sincerely wish all residents of Division 1 an absolutely fantastic holiday, good health and my very best wishes for the New Year! Rick.Baberowski@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au

Hinterland Families Outdoor classroom day

Contributed by Tamra Philpot Students at Beerwah State School have been relishing their outdoor classroom and revelled in the annual celebration of the global Outdoor Classroom Day earlier in November. The outdoor classroom has inspired learning in many ways and invoked a sense of wonder for students as they investigate the uniquely stunning rainforest environment. Prep and year 1 students searched for the ingredients to make a wombat stew to create a recipe for the fairies to turn into something scrumptious, chewy and gooey. The fairies visited on a previous outdoor classroom visit and students went for a fairy treasure hunt, finding fairy numbers and items to create a fantastic fairy home. They also learnt the procedure to make fairy toadstools and drank fairy tea in a special tea ceremony. The outdoor classroom has provided a space that promotes inquiry learning and has encouraged their imagination, as students listened to storytelling and spotted the Gruffalo hiding in the bushes! There has also been much problem solving and risk taking as students explore the great outdoors and communicate with their peers as they engage in investigations.

Bella Grace Beerwah is buzzing with excitement following the delivery of a stingless native beehive ahead of a community donation of an additional two native log hives, which will be gifted to Beerwah State School and Black Wattle Farm. Since April this year the centre has been running a farmer’s market initiative selling local produce to raise funds to buy the hives made locally by Joshua Jeffery. Centre director Kristy Griffiths said that throughout the year, the entire process had been a wonderful learning journey that had helped to strengthened community connection, supported local farming families and shared their sustainability focus with both the centre’s children, their families and the wider community. “The idea for encouraging more habitats for native bees was initially put forward by our children. This initiative has provided us with an exciting learning adventure that has also allowed the opportunity to explore important topics with our children such as sustainability and the importance of bees to our eco systems,” Kristy said. As part of the process, Kristy and other representatives from the centre attended an informative bee care training program facilitated by Sunshine Coast Council, which they found hugely beneficial. Plans are now being finalised to have the donated beehives crane lifted onto location over the coming weeks.

From the churches Words to live by

People fear God, afraid of what they will have to give up if they follow Him. God’s plan for us is pretty clear - He values knowing us and for us to know Him. What may seem strange to many people is that there is actually a path to Heaven. It’s through accepting Christ. I can’t imagine an anything goes type policy to get into Heaven and I can already hear the question: “But what about‌?â€? There aren’t a bunch of exemptions and clauses, it is so simple. Accept Jesus Christ and live our life in a way that honours God. Reading the Bible and doing what we read is how we live for God. 1. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. 2. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,â€? declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.â€? 3. Philippians 4:13 I can do everything through Him who gives me strength. DQ$XVWUDOLDQ&KULVWLDQ&KXUFK

In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. 5. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 6. Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jesus is Lordâ&#x20AC;? and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 7.

In the Garden My top 10 essentials

Of the hundreds (and hundreds) of gardening gadgets and things out there, what are the basic essentials every gardener needs? Here’s my list … well the first five, as there isn’t enough space for them all here. For the last five you’ll have to read next week's GC&M News. 1. Garden hat A good garden hat is no ordinary hat. It’s a statement of our personality and style. However, it also needs to be practical and multi-functional. So, not only does it need to stop you from getting skin cancers, it will carry cherry tomatoes inside, sop sweat off your brow, swat away march flies, dry wet hands, wipe dirt off tools, wave hello to the neighbours, get thrown at the damn brushturkey in the rhubarb patch, and a whole lot of other things as well. 2. Gardening gloves I prefer a good set of supple yet hard-wearing gloves but they need to be breathable. These are mostly synthetic and cotton blend gloves, with maybe some thin leather to support the back of the glove. The full leather gloves tend to go stiff when they get wet and then dry out. Thin cloth-style gloves don’t stand up to a good day's digging. I also like a glove that has a Velcro tab on the wrist, which makes it so much easier to get them on and off. At the moment I’m using a Saxon brand glove I stumbled on at the hardware (they are so good, I went back and bought ten pairs). 3. Garden spade A garden spade is really a cutting and hole digging tool rather than a soil turning tool. For this reason, I prefer a spade with a thicker metal blade with the t-shaped timber and steel handle and one that has a rotating cross piece.

Don’t forget to sharpen the end of the blade with a coarse file or a grinder. This makes the digging so much easier. To move material like soil or compost use a shovel. 4. Hoses, spray guns and sprinklers Kinky hoses are a nightmare. There’s nothing worse than when the water flow stops and I have to walk all the way back to the start of the hose to undo a kink. I buy a good quality hose with a high nonkink rating. I also like a brightly coloured hose rather than dark green as it’s easier to see on the ground. This helps when a mower is involved. I also like a long hose 30m is a good length. Spray nozzles are essential. I generally have two. The basic old twist nozzle is excellent for a general purpose sprayer. Then I have a wand style which has a multispray pivoting head. It’s great for watering the garden, high pots and misting seedlings. As for the sprinkler, I use basic pyramid sprinklers. They throw a circle of about 3m, are cheap and you can connect them up in a line to water multiple areas (like a line of fruit trees). I also use an oscillating sprinkler that has a large rectangular coverage and waters evenly across the whole area. I’ve recently started using a tap timer as well but choose one that you can program. I’ve found that a basic battery-operated model is great and simple to program and use. 5. Garden fork A garden fork is an essential tool. It allows you to turn over soil, break up clumps and mix through compost and manures without harming the earthworms (too much). It needs to be sturdy and have a good handle. I prefer a classic t-shaped timber and steel handle and one that has a rotating cross piece. This makes it easier to hold and twist the fork than a solid plastic handle.

Australia has 42 species in the fig or Ficus genera, including vines, epiphytes and woody trees. One of the most common locally is the sandpaper fig or creek sandpaper fig (Ficus coronata), found along the east coast between Mackay and northern Victoria. Named for its rough sandpapery leaves, this species can grow to 15m tall and is hardy and easy to grow. It can tolerate part-shade and drought but not frost. Like other Ficus species, the root system of the sandpaper fig is large, so it is wise not to plant it near buildings or drainage systems. It does, however, tolerate heavy pruning and can even be grown in a large pot. Fig trees are unique in that their flowers are made up of hundreds of tiny florets wrapped up inside the fruit. To pollinate them specific species of wasps have evolved to burrow into the fruit to complete pollination. The sandpaper fig is a useful tree, providing food, medicine, fire and tools. Masses of hairy, sweet fruit grow not only on stems but also from the trunk between January and June. They can be eaten raw, dried or cooked into cakes, jellies, jams or sauces. The leaves have traditionally been used for finishing tools on boomerangs and spears, and also used for bush medicine. The straight branches were used for fire starter sticks, while the bark was used to make string. The fruit are fodder for fruit bats and for many species of birds, including figbirds, fruit doves, pigeons, cat birds and the endangered Coxen’s fig parrot.

Just phone our clubhouse on 5499 9960 or go to our website www. malenygolfclub.com and book a game or two of golf. Membership fees for 2020 are now due and are to be paid by December 31. The cost remains at $95. If you do not intend to renew please let our secretary know. Our trophies and presentation luncheon is set down for 12noon on Saturday, December 14. Please arrive at this time to mingle with fellow club members and have a drink. Lunch will start at about 1pm, which is a full buffet-style meal. After lunch, presentations will begin with club person of the year as well as most improved bowler of the year to be announced. We will then take to the green barefoot with a couple of closest to the spider games, etc. Dress is neat casual and with a cost of $25 every member should be there for this great afternoon. Thanks to everyone who played on Sunday for the Police Bowls break up of 18 ends of pairs followed by lunch. This Saturday and Sunday at 10am we will be holding training sessions for all those members who have their names down to play Q7s and Gr8s in 2020. Strongly suggest everyone attends. Our coaches will be involved with Jacqui Hineman, who will be helping to run the sessions.

The Range Croquet Club Contributed Ken Barker A jolly social afternoon was had on Thursday when Bev Sockhill, Donna Manning and Donna’s cousin visited the lawn for a game of golf croquet where no scores were kept but much fun was had. Two games of Aussie croquet were played during the Saturday morning training session by newcomers Janelle Wilson and Helen Uhlmann. Symmetrical results were recorded with Janelle winning the first and Helen the second 14-12. Nick Cram and 15 others enjoyed an afternoon on the lawns on Saturday celebrating Nick’s granddaughter’s 21st birthday. Balls were hit about and a dousing was narrowly avoided when Wallace Roy intervened while on a routine check of the automatic sprinkler system.

There was no play on the Sunday but Kath Smith and Donna had a pleasant cup of tea under the shade cloth beside lawn one. Croquet is a friendly game which encourages polite behaviour between players. Games normally begin and end with opponents shaking hands and genuinely wishing each well. Robert Elliot and Miggy Mackie (photographed), having exchanged pleasantries, are about to begin their game in the third division section of the Maleny Club tournament held recently. Miggy won the game and went on to beat her husband Peter Mackie in a subsequent game to win the event. Coaching for beginners and others is available from 8-10 am on Saturdays. These are popular sessions in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Play days are Thursday and Sunday, 2pm for 2.30pm. Our web address is https://rangecroquetatmaleny.org.au. For details contact president Sarah Widin on 0417 640 704, vice president Vince Carbery on 5494 2193 or secretary Priscilla Vickers on 5494 3555.

Maleny Bowls Club Contributed by Graeme Glover What a busy place Maleny Bowls Club has been lately, hosting our regular events plus a full calendar of Christmas parties and other reunions. Thanks to the excellent support of the local community we are fully booked. Wednesday nights continue to be very popular with a full rink of people enjoying the cool of the evening for a great social outing. See you all there at 6pm for a barbeque and bowls. For the next few weeks we intend playing two shortened games so that all players and teams get to play each other before our Christmas break. The last Wednesday game is December 18. Scroungers has been very competitive for the past few weeks. Dave Edwards is showing good form both in playing and in his new found role of helping to prepare the surface for the hot and tougher summer conditions. Other winners last week were Ian Chatterton, Ian Spence and Doug McGufficke. Congratulations to all who played. This week we see another monthly final. Hoping everyone brings their best form. Thanks to all who are assisting in the rostered duties. This assists all, lightens the load and develops a sense of appreciation for those regular volunteers. While speaking of volunteers, a big thanks from all the visitors from around the hinterland for our monthly pairs. The catering was terrific for our final bowls event for the year. Congratulations to Bill Edwards and his team on winning our monthly pairs. A reminder to all our members, please put your name up for the Christmas get-together on Friday, December 20. Have a great week of bowls and a reminder to all members to shop locally for those special Christmas treats for all your family and friends. Support those who support our club.

Just for Laughs Heaven sent

ARIES March 21 - April 20 Venus and Mars are in a lovely position and have a way of joining people together. This could create bonds and alliances. Just before the weekend you will be able to capitalise on some behind-the-scenes tactics and manoeuvring. So getting your way is taking a very subtle approach. Stay on the sidelines this weekend. TAURUS April 21 – May 21 A long-time friend makes you feel welcome and so there are warm affections that support you while travelling, working or socialising. You feel so good that there is a sense of common heart and belonging. Deep seated emotional complications crop up over the weekend but you will feel a sense of unity and love after it is all over. GEMINI May 22 - June 23 Because the Sun will stay on duty in the fiery sign of Sagittarius, and in your sector of relationships until the 21st, you should find December makes for a merry fun-filled month. Jupiter, however, is in the practical sign of Capricorn urging you to be aware of your finances. Creative thinking and practicality can help you overcome troubles. CANCER June 24 - July 22 Because the Sun and Mercury are dashing through the playful Sagittarius this month it urges all Cancerians to get rid of some of their responsibilities and get out there and have some fun! Someone you care for very deeply will need your time and attention. Accept the kind offer of some of your close friends. It is your turn now.

“How does this represent Christmas?" His answer: “It’s Carol's.”

Christmas giving

A guy bought his wife a beautiful diamond ring for Christmas. After hearing about this extravagant gift, a friend said: "I thought she wanted one of those sporty four-wheel-drive vehicles." "She did," he replied, "but where was I going to find a fake Jeep?"

with Edgar J. Winter www.astroclairvoyant.com

LEO July 23 – August 22 Mercury being in Sagittarius, and fired up by the heat of the Sun, make this holiday season a merry one for you! You just have to do a bit of your homework before you are allowed out to play. Jupiter will begin a year-long stay in the career sign of Capricorn. This will open up opportunities for business and for you to get ahead. VIRGO August 23 – September 22 If you have not been in love for a while prepare yourself because the Universe is about to present you with your shot at it! This is because loving Venus is on duty in Capricorn and in your sector of love affairs until the 20th. Generous Jupiter also will join Venus so these two planets will bring much romantic attention now. LIBRA September 23 - October 22 Slow down a lot and let your imagination benefit you in your health, home and family. During December you will need to simplify your activities. The Capricorn energies from the stars indicate you are in a slow phase, which means taking practical action. You may feel that you are operating under a heavy cloud of uncertainty. SCORPIO October 23 - November 22 This week you enter the weekend wearing your detective badge, making you insightful and perceptive. There are loving feelings with your family. You might even be seeing the birth of a beautiful child. Many friends are in a hurry-up attitude but you would rather take your time. There is a sense of excitement coming your way.

SAGITTARIUS November 23 – December 22 Jupiter leaves your sign this week and enters a year-long stay in the next sign, namely Capricorn. This is in your sector of financial improvement and among various possibilities it means growth towards your goals and purpose in life. Start planning for that now. If you need a romantic encounter this is also a definite possibility. CAPRICORN December 23 - January 19 With the planet Jupiter entering Capricorn this should open up a fabulous year for you of luck, opportunity, expansion, personal growth and professional success. You should find yourself getting ahead and getting what you want. Take charge with conviction and be open to interesting attractions. Others look to you for guidance. AQUARIUS January 20 - February 19 If you are thinking of travelling to visit a dear one, this is definitely the month to do it. This is because it is a Sagittarius season, a sign that loves freedom just as much as you do. You are in a good phase for anything involving money, either spending or earning it! Why not just go about it subtly, intuitively and insightfully. PISCES February 20 - March 20 Your personal inner guides will lead you to some fabulous meals in social outings. You may find your speciality is soothing troubled souls. Do not hold back on your thoughts as you are in a very prophetic and psychic week. You will not hurt them by being totally honest. There are some new responsibilities in your home life now.

Three men die in a car accident on Christmas Eve and find themselves at the Pearly Gates waiting to enter heaven. On entering they must present something relating to or associated with Christmas. The first man searches his pockets and finds some mistletoe, so he is allowed in. The second man presents a cracker, so he is also allowed in. The third man pulls out a bra. Confused at this last gesture, St Peter asks:

Smile bright with Dental Excel....

Dr David Marley

Dr David Marley has 45 years of extensive experience and has developed a great interest in restorative dentistry and full mouth rehabilitation as well as great belief in the benefits of cosmetic dentistry. “I always believe that a healthy mouth and an attractive smile are a great asset which should be nurtured and valued. Healthy teeth are acknowledged to have a great part to play in

supporting good general health,” David says. David still keeps up to date with new innovations in his field such as his experience with surgical implants. He enjoys sharing this professional knowledge with his patients to assist improving quality of life for all. David said their aim is to provide a comprehensive service to the local community for many years to come.

Dr Finbarr O’Sullivan Dr Finbarr O’Sullivan (BDS) originally qualified in Liverpool in the UK back in 2005. He gained two years experience with the UK’s National Health Service before spending four years in private practice in Ireland. He has a particular interest in and enthusiasm for dental implants; both to replace missing teeth and to retain those

annoying loose dentures. He believes that the huge leaps in technology during recent times have changed the level of treatment on offer. Finbarr also holds a postgraduate certificate in cosmetic restorative dentistry (UK) which gives him the added expertise when restoring a beautiful smile.

Dr Tiffany Chan Dr Tiffany Chan qualified as a dentist at the University of Liverpool UK in 2010 and upon graduating, she went on to work in the Community Dental Service through the National Health Service where she treated many patients with dental phobia, children and special needs patients. This experience enhanced her people skills in putting

people at ease in the dental surgery. She is gentle, great with children and those who just really hate going to the dentist! Tiffany has a great interest in extractions and wisdom teeth removal and has completed an intensive oral surgery course with maxillofacial surgeons in Cambodia.

Dr Shirly Atia Dr Shirly Atia completed her Dental Hygiene Degree in Canada and worked as a dental hygienist for seven years before completing a Bachelor of Dental Surgery at James Cook University in Cairns. She has completed her general practice residency in Queensland Health providing dental care to Indigenous communities.

Shirly is extremely passionate about preventive dentistry but enjoys all areas of dentistry including fillings, crown and bridge, aesthetic dentistry and root canals. Shirly ensures all her patients receive the best possible treatment and is committed to providing high quality dentistry in a warm, gentle and welcoming environment.

Dr Dominika Zaremba-Stronczak Dr Dominika Zaremba-Stronczak attained her qualification in 2007 from Wroclaw Medical University in Poland. After working in various public and private sectors throughout Poland, she moved to Sardinia, an Italian Island in the Mediterranean Sea before settling in Australia with her young family in 2016.

Dominika is extremely detail-oriented, with a special interest in preventative and restorative dentistry. She is a very warm, gentle and compassionate professional, and her treatments are completely tailored to the needs of both children and adults. She is passionate about ensuring her patients receive the best care available.

Susan, Gail, Helen, Karen and Colleen Every time you step through the doors at Dental Excel Beerwah you are welcomed with a big smile from the friendly team of ladies that make up the reception and dental assistance team. The ladies bring over 80 years combined customer care and dental support experience to their roles. While some people may feel a bit nervous about visiting a dentist, the staff at

Dental Excel Beerwah are dedicated to making patients feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Empathy, care and compassion (as well as great multi-tasking skills!) are all personal attributes the support ladies share with patients. Why not talk to the ladies about no interest payment plans, and gain the smile you deserve this year!
