Hi Everyone


nyone who is a regular reader of GC&M News will already know about the Beerwah Charity Sports Day annual Super Strawberry competition. However I thought I'd mention it, just in case some of our newer readers from the Range, may not be aware of the longevity of the competition. This week has also seen the winner of the first round announced. Over the years there has been some very large specimens entered – I can remember one year where there was a strawberry that basically filled the whole 250gram punnet! Sadly we haven’t seen one of those for a while – so the organisers have diversified this year to incorporate weirdly shaped strawberries – we will be placing the photo of each week’s competition winner in our sports section. I know that some of you may question the legitimacy of strawberry growing as a sport, however in the lead up to the Olympics, there is always lots of discussion about what is a ‘sport’. So, I am making the call that until the Charity Sports Day on August 20 strawberry growing can be considered a sport in Glasshouse Country! Regards,

Although, at the time of going to print (Monday, July 4), the question of who will form government is still in the balance, locally the result has been more emphatic. The official Australian Electoral Commission results show that the Liberal-National Party’s Andrew Wallace will accede the retiring Mal Brough as the Member for Fisher. In the two candidate preferred count, Mr Wallace received 59.32% of the vote, whilst the Australian Labor Party’s Bill Gissane received 40.68%. The overall first preference count for all the candidates was, in order of highest to lowest: Andrew Wallace (33,452); Bill Gissane (17,188); Tony Gibson, Greens (8,216); John Spellman, Australian Liberty Alliance (2,507); Caroline Ashlin, Family First (2,307); Mike Jessop, Independent (2,191); Tracey BellHenselin, Rise Up Australia (1,862); Jason Burgess, Veterans Party (662); and LB Joum, Online Direct Democracy (326). Of the eligible local electoral roll, 74.59% turned up to vote with 6.61% (or 4,863) voting informally. Both major parties received an increase in their primary votes of around 4% due to no candidate running for the Palmer United Party, who received over 17% of the vote in the 2013 election. The overall two candidate preferred

Anna and Luca Russell from Landsborough lodging Anna’s vote result has seen a slight increase in the support for Labor (0.43%) from the 2013 elections. Candidate elect, Andrew Wallace said that it had been a whirlwind for him since February, but all his hard work has paid off. “Thank you for all your well wishes, support, votes and friendships, together we have secured the seat … now the real work begins,” Mr Wallace said. “We will work hard to create a stronger Sunshine Coast and work for the community tirelessly to live up to the faith you have placed in us for Fisher.”

Latest on Glenview water theme park

Glasshouse Country Dog Wash

Warm water hydrobath, ears, eyes & nails,

It seems the long awaited water theme park planned for the Steve Irwin Way site at Glenview may be a step closer.

From Landsborough to Caboolture

Ph. Daryl 0417 740 058 5494 6943 (a/h)

Locals may have noticed that the shed on the block – which is adjacent the Glenview BP and opposite the Holcim sand mine – has been transformed by an enormous painted mural. Confirming this is an announcement from recently formed Sunshine Coast company Sanad Capital Pty Ltd that they have partnered with a leading Dubai-based investment group to bring the $400 million wave pool, water park and tourist hub to Glenview. With the preliminary approval already received from the Sunshine Coast Council, the ‘active sports’ theme park is set to start construction in 2017. CEO of Sanad Capital, Bradley P. Sutherland describes the project as providing a community lifestyle and tourism hub, never seen before in

Australia, which will wow outdoors and action sports enthusiasts. “We are creating a lifestyle, an outdoors haven which sunny coasters can enjoy at their disposal,” he said. The project will bring 2000 direct and indirect jobs throughout construction, and a further $29 million annually in salaries and wages when complete,” he said. “Essentially, we’re looking to support economic growth on a community level within the region,” said Mr Sutherland. “One of our primary objectives is to boost tourism and generate jobs. We want to shed light on our beautiful environment here on the Sunshine Coast, our unique lifestyle and home grown resources and talent.” More details on the master development will be released by Sanad later in 2016.

Women’s rugby league coach wanted Following the success of the Beerwah Bulldogs women’s rugby league team over the past five seasons, the Club is seeking another women’s coach for 2017. Bulldogs women’s coach, Rod Kerr, said that the high level of interest in women’s rugby league on the coast has encouraged the Club to form a second women’s team. “The Sunshine Coast has one of the highest junior girls’ rugby league participation rates in Australia with very strong junior contingents at Beachmere, Beerwah, Caboolture, Kawana, Nambour and Noosa. The second Bulldog’s team will provide a clear pathway for junior girls to enter senior football,” he said. Current women’s players come from across the Coast including Bli Bli, Maroochydore, Kawana, Caloundra, Beerwah and the Hinterland, Beachmere, Caboolture, Burpengary, Deception Bay and the northern suburbs of Brisbane. Former Caboolture junior Annette Brander is a current Australian Jillaroo and Bribie Island junior Courtney Lockwood has again been selected for Queensland. Beachmere resident Stef Gallagher will join Annette and Courtney to play her first game for Queensland against New South Wales on July 23.

Beerwah women’s team June 2016

Beerwah players in action against Souths Brisbane June 2016 Senior player, team vice captain and Beerwah Club vice-president Amy Bock, is excited about the prospect of another team at the Club. “Playing women’s football with Beerwah at the moment can be a bit daunting as the ladies come up against a host of State and international players in teams like Souths and Burleigh. The second side would play in the lower level competition, allowing young players or players new to the game, to gain experience before coming up against the top teams,” she said. The Club is seeking an experienced coach or captain coach for a second Beerwah women’s team to play in the South East Queensland women’s rugby league competition in 2017. Amy Bock is the key contact for coaches seeking further information about the new coaching role at the Bulldogs. Amy can be contacted on mobile 0429 140 184 or contact women’s coach Rod Kerr on 0488 943 326.

Beerwah Aldi expansion plans The Beerwah Aldi store has been received well by the locals since opening in 2011, and it seems they’re about to get even bigger to allow them to expand their product range. A material change of use development application has been submitted to the Sunshine Coast Council for an extension of the Simpson Street store. According to the planning documents, an extra 221 square metres of floor space will be created by pushing the store out on the northern side. Some car parks will be lost under the increased building footprint; however more carparks are being created by an additional proposal to close the Turner Street entry and using the space for extra parking. Consequently, the site will gain an additional six car parking spaces in total. The Simpson street entry then becomes the main vehicle thoroughfare, with the driveway connecting the parking areas behind the medical centre remaining for overflow traffic movements. As the development is classified as code assessable (rather than impact assessable) no public notification is required. For more information, go to Councils PD Online portal (www.pdonline.sunshinecoast. and search for MCU16/0115.

Riding regardless of disability By Sonia Clark

Every year the volunteer based ‘Riding for the Disabled Association Queensland’ (RDAQ), hosts their State Championships at the Queensland State Equestrian Centre located at Caboolture. The two-day event is a chance for members from affiliated clubs throughout Queensland to come together and have the opportunity to showcase their skills regardless of their disability. Recently GC&M News was contacted by Johnny Moran, OAM JPQ of Beerburrum, who is the Queensland Patron of the association. He is understandably honoured by the valuable contribution towards enriching people’s lives that the organisation achieves. “I am very proud to be connected with this wonderful association. If you can, call in over the event weekend, shake hands and be prepared to have you hearts melted by these wonderful kids who try so hard in their pursuit of excellence,” he said. The annual event involves riders, coaches and volunteers from RDAQ centres all over Queensland participating in a number of equestrian events including Dressage and mounted games competitions. Currently RDAQ run 17 centres throughout the State catering for around 500 participants with varying degrees of physical and intellectual disabilities. This year’s competition will see riders coming from a number of centres including Atherton in Far North Queensland, Rockhampton and South of Brisbane. Horses for the event are sourced from RDAQ coaches, local pony clubs and volunteer members.

RADQ has been running for over 40 years and through its therapeutic riding programs seeks to address the unique emotional, physical and social needs of its participants, by allowing riders to create abilities and inclusion. President of RDAQ, Trish Hollice says their annual event is very exciting, and although it takes a lot of work they just love seeing everyone come together. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to meet people face to face and swap stories and celebrate the personal achievements of the riders,” she said. The State championships have riders of all ages and abilities competing. Every participant receives a ribbon and the general public are most welcome to come along and support the event. Free entry on Saturday, July 9 from 8.30am 5.30pm and on Sunday, July 10 from 8.30am - 3.00pm. Queensland State Equestrian Centre, 118 Old Gympie Road, Caboolture.

We are fortunate to have Welding Coordinator James Stevenson, who has been the driving force behind the forming of the Welding Group. James is ably assisted by Bob Kissell; between them they have a wealth of experience in every aspect of the art of welding, which they are keen to share.

SCARS opening extra hours

Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge is hoping to increase the number of cats and dogs finding homes by staying opening extra hours. Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge Manager, Penny Brischke said they understand that it is hard for families to come and see and potentially adopt their cats and dogs during the week as they usually close at 4.00pm. “First we started by increasing our Sunday trading hours, which has been an enormous success with 11 and six adoptions in the last two Sunday’s of June. So from Tuesday, July 5 our hours are changing to 10.00am – 5.00pm Tuesday to Sunday (we are still closed on Mondays). “We have seen a lot of cat adoptions over the last few weeks which is great too as we have been struggling to keep bringing in cats from the Sunshine Coast Council Pound. “Desexing cats and dogs remains topical for us, as unwanted litters continue to come in even though the kitten ‘season’ should have finished. “We would encourage people to do the responsible thing and get your cats desexed. SCARS offers discounted desexing vouchers to be used at the local Sunshine Coast vets. “Our ‘Desex in the City’ program means you can get your cat desexed for only $69.00 and we will pay the difference to the vets directly,” Penny said. SCARS, an independent, not-for-profit charity cares for up to 70 dogs and 70 cats at any one time and saves 1000 cats and dogs every year. SCARS relies heavily on government grants and the community to keep operating. The charity spends over $250,000 on vet care each year. Spending around $500 to rehome each animal – and that’s just the healthy ones. They rely on community donations to care for these cats and dogs who may have been abandoned, surrendered or found wandering the streets. All animals receive an initial vet check and care including heartworm, worming and flea prevention, vaccinations, food, shelter and care, de-sexing and micro-chipping. Adoption prices include all of this and registration with the local council. SCARS (Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge Society) was established in 1979 and has a non-euthanasia policy, focusing on finding forever homes for our four-legged friends and promoting responsible pet ownership. About 120 volunteers help run the refuge which receives no recurrent government funding. You can help by donating to the Sippy Creek Animal Refuge Society online or at any Westpac Bank (BSB 034 229 Account Number 100574). For more information visit

Blues Connection comes to town

Glass House Mountains Community Hall

Contributed by Elaine Reeves Long white dresses, gloves, flowers, partners in suits and bow-ties – it’s the Debutante Ball season! Debutante Balls were very popular in Glass House Mountains, and many have been held in the School of Arts over the years. They were usually held under the auspices of the Church, with music provided by local musicians. Many residents of Glass House Mountains will remember Mrs Beitz’s ensemble of piano, saxophone and drums. The Pride of Erin was the first dance performed by the debutantes and their partners, and supper was served after the presentation – prepared by the ladies of the Hall committee, the CWA, the Church or the RSL. In the Courier Mail on September 9, 1953 it was noted….. ‘At Glasshouse Mountains the eleven debutantes presented to Archdeacon Birch at the Church of England Ball were Glenice Meyer, Jill Sargeant, Isabel Preston, Phillipa Halstead, Joyce Jeffries, Edith Winterhoff, Lotti Winterhoff, Margaret Laboo, Joane Melville, Peggy Haupt (Huth) and Daphne Preston’. The dignitaries were Vicar Paxton-Hall, Mary Gardner, Bob Gardner, Archdeacon Birch, Irene Lawson and Toby Huth. Flower girls were Doris Page and Dale Reeves. The photo shows the debutantes and their partners, with the dignitaries on the stage behind them and the flower girls seated in the front. The Hall committee is keen to display as many photographs of these Deb Balls as possible on our 'Back to Glass House Day' on September 10 – if you are willing to loan photographs for scanning, please contact Elaine Reeves 5496 9134 or John Winterhoff 5496 9349. And, don’t forget to mark your calendar – Saturday, September 10.

Run by John Lynn who also organises the venue’s long running weekly ‘Jammit’ open mic nights, Blues Connection started at the D’Aguilar Pub in 2015 before moving over to the current venue in January this year. The monthly event features a core band of semi-retired professional musicians and provides a blues orientated platform for other performers to book in and play on the evening, which runs from 6.30pm until 9.00pm. The name Blues Connection is a reference to the number of bands that have connected through the music nights however the ‘core band’ that plays at every event consists of John Lynn on keyboards, guitarist John O’Dwyer, Geoff Hillier on drums and Stephen Ewart on bass. The band is influenced by acts such as Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Gary Moore and they often play a few well-known blues standards to get toes tapping. Recently the musicians have been joined by vocalist Narelle Munday. Other performers are welcome to book in to play on the night - the only strict rule is that they only play Blues. Entry is $5.00 and if you feel like getting up to play a few songs John recommends that you head along to one of the nights and then find him to book in.

Christmas in July in Peachester

‘Christmas in July’ is the theme for a dinner function coming up at the Peachester Hall on Saturday, July 16 at 6.30pm. The weather in recent weeks has reminded us that traditional Christmas fare is much more appropriate for a winter Christmas than in Australia’s hot December weather. So why not have the best of both worlds? Here is an opportunity to come out and enjoy a hot roast dinner and Christmas pudding while the weather suits these comfort foods! And to add to the festive spirit, there will be musical entertainment with a Christmas theme from the popular Woodford Singers. This is a fundraiser for the Peachester Hall, and the Hall Committee look forward to welcoming local residents and visitors who can come along and enjoy the night out, while helping to support this important community centre. Tickets are $25.00, and available now at Peachester Fruit & Vegies, or by calling Helen on 5494 9557 or Jan 5494 2301. Please buy your tickets or call to book ASAP, as numbers are essential for catering purposes. There will also be drinks available to purchase on the night.

Living on the Hedge Hedges are a useful and attractive way of defining boundaries, providing privacy, scenic amenity and great for wildlife. What we tend to think of as a traditional hedge is a one species planting of the same tough, readily pruned, bushy to the ground species, that is basically a living fence and not much more than that. However this is a relatively recent invention of our production line landscaping and the hedges of old contained a diverse range of species and resources for both humans and wildlife. Some of the great local plants for creating hedges include most of our Lillypilly’s and Myrtles such as Creek Lillypilly - Acmena smithii, Blue Lillypilly - Syzygium oleosum, Silky Myrtle - Decaspermum humile, Dotted Myrtle - Gossia punctata, Plum Myrtle - Pilidiostigma glabrum and Scrub Cherry - Syzygium australe (dwarf forms), however there are so many more! Common Aspen - Acronychia oblongifolia, Muttonwood - Myrsine variabilis, White Alder - Callicoma serratifolia, Blueberry Ash - Elaeocarpus reticulatus, Velvet Leaf - Callicarpa pedunculata, and Sweet Pittosporum Pittosporum undulatum and that’s just for starters. If you want prickles too to keep things in or out, you can’t go past Orange Boxthorn - Pittosporum minutiflorum, but also try Native Holly - Alchornea ilicifolia, Native Capers - Capparis spp. and Native Currant - Carissa ovata. Hedge plants are great for you and the environment, so don’t beat around the bush and get hedging.

Environment Sunshine Coast Airport joins world’s best at managing carbon emissions

Sunshine Coast Airport has joined an elite number of international airports leading the way in carbon reduction, gaining accreditation under the Airport Carbon Accreditation program at Level 3 Optimisation. The Airport Carbon Accreditation program recognises airports around the globe for managing their carbon emissions and reducing carbon footprints. Regional Director, Airports Council International Asia-Pacific Mrs Patti Chau said "this is a testament of Sunshine Coast Airport’s commitment to minimising its impact on the environment. I look forward to seeing the airport achieving the ultimate goal of carbon neutrality.” Since mapping its carbon usage in 2013, Sunshine Coast Airport has continued to work on its carbon footprint reduction program through a series of low energy initiatives including investments in low energy lighting and air conditioning, the implementation of waste reduction, recycling programs, the use of water sensitive urban design, water usage reduction and water harvesting. Airport General Manager Peter Pallot said the airport had focused on engaging with stakeholders to encourage them to reduce their carbon footprints, increasing the amount of recycling at the airport, and reducing the amount of waste that is going to landfill. “Around 44% of recyclables generated at the airport in the past were lost to landfill and 50.7% of our waste going to landfill was compostable,” Mr Pallot said. “By introducing new bins with three waste streams we have made it much easier for our guests to recognise where their waste belongs. “By separating our compostable waste from recycling and rubbish we will save around 482kg of waste from going to landfill each week. That’s 25.1 tonnes per year.” In May this year, Sunshine Coast Airport became the first airport in Australia to install a Sunshine Coast manufactured OSCA (On-site composting apparatus). OSCA is an automated, aerobic composting technology designed for on-site management of organic waste, and is the first solar powered system of its type. The OSCA uses minimal energy to process food waste, compostable packaging, paper and cardboard, and green waste into safe, stable, high quality compost.

Encouraging biodiversity in your backyard

Your Local Native Plant Nursery

OPEN 20 Coral Street, Maleny Call 07 5435 2193 Saturday - 9am til 1pm 10



JULY 6 2016

Look out your window – what birds do you see? Sadly, the answer is often Indian Mynahs or Noisy Miners. Neat gardens, open areas of lawn and few trees are ideal habitats for these aggressive birds. If you want to encourage a diversity of birdlife to your property, you will need to revise your ideas of what your backyard should look like. Small native birds need a variety of plant heights, densities, and types. Thickly planted thickets of small shrubs or trees, especially spiky species such as Hakea or Bursaria, create areas of shelter from predators and the weather. Shrubs with small flowers located within the plant are perfect as larger birds cannot access these. Unfortunately, many nurseries sell hybrid plant species bred to produce large flowers – just what Noisy Miners love. Select a range of plants with flowers, nectar, fruit and seeds, e.g. Banksias, Hakeas, and Wattles, and vines e.g. Hardenbergia. Native grasses, if allowed to grow and set seed, provide a valuable food source for small finches and wrens. An undercover of groundcovers, herbs, rotting logs, fallen twigs and rocks provide ideal habitat for insects on which many small birds feed. Let your yard become a little messy, as twigs, leaves, fallen flowers, lichen, moss and spider webs provide birds with nesting materials. So the key to attracting lots of different bird species is to relinquish the manicured garden look and embrace a bit of mayhem and mess. The Finches, Robins, Pardalotes, and Fairy Wrens will thank you. Eastern yellow robin Do you have an hour or two a month to spare?

School News Mooloolah State School wins at Nambour Show

Recently Mooloolah State School students entered into the arts and crafts section of the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show, thanks to the encouragement of Ms Wendy Gaines a teacher at the school. There were individual entrants from different year levels and the Year 1 teacher Miss Caitlyn Draper decided to enter a school display. The individuals entered different categories and some of the students won first, second or third, while other students received highly recommended for their effort and ability. The students won stationery packs and the first place getters also won $5.00. The students were extremely delighted with their prizes. To the school’s delight, we actually won the school display category. This category is the Fay Campbell Award and the prize was $300.00. Miss Caitlyn Draper worked hard with many students from the school to enter an amazing display based on the school’s Song. They created the school and community with paper, cellophane, drawings and reward tickets from the school to create trees, valleys, rivers, etc. It was a wonderful display and the students that participated had a great time and were proud of their contributions. Well done to the school and the other award winners from the show.

Dude that is different Teaching children acceptance and the motivation to tackle seemingly impossible goals was the focus of Jason Morris’s show during his recent visit to Beerwah Kindergarten. Jason lost his hand in an industrial accident when he was just 19-years-old. Since then he has paved a successful career as a motivational speaker and travelled all over the state with his combined show ‘Dude that is Different and Didge for Kids’. Beerwah Kindy has been an annual stop-over for the past 10 years. During the show, Mr Morris helped the children develop some understanding of what it might be like to have a disability. "Jason discussed how he overcomes obstacles and demonstrated ways he has adapted to living with one hand," co-director Rebecca Mackintosh said. “Most importantly, Jason taught the children some powerful lessons including 'Don’t give up, just keep trying' and that although we may look different, we are much the same and we must be kind to everyone.” Mr Morris explained how the indigenous instruments are created by termites and invited the children to jump and move around as he retold stories using the didgeridoo.

You Said It Re: Burning issue for Bells Creek residents

Sunshine Coast Council has provided the following response for residents. Council responds to abandoned vehicles (including burnt out vehicles) on local government controlled areas only. Vehicles left on private property are the responsibility of the owner of that property. In discussions with council’s Customer Response Department, the forest in question in Steven Reeve’s letter is under the control of HQ Plantations. Therefore, any vehicles left on their property are the responsibility of that company to deal with. When responding to abandoned vehicles on council land, council use the following process: 1. an officer attends the vehicle and attempts to identify a current owner using a vehicle registration or VIN 2. the officer will contact the Police to ensure that the vehicle is not of interest to the Police (e.g. for being stolen) 3. an Abandoned Vehicle Notice is placed on the vehicle, the notice is a bright orange sticker to alert passing pedestrians or vehicles that the vehicle has been deemed abandoned. This allows for the owner to see the sticker and prompt them to contact council 4. where a vehicle is not causing a hazard, it will be left in place for 14 days to allow an owner to come forward. Where a vehicle is causing a hazard, it may be towed immediately or within 48 hours depending on the level of the hazard 5. where an owner cannot be identified, or does

Send your letter to email: fax: 5438 7446 post: PO Box, 99, Beerwah, 4519

not come forward, council then tows the vehicle to council’s holding yard, where the vehicle is held for a minimum of one month prior to sale or disposal. During this holding period the owner has a further opportunity to come forward and pay a fee to collect the vehicle. In regards to the incident referred to in Steven Reeve’s letter, officers have allowed additional time for the vehicle to be removed by the insurance company or owner. Following this complaint and a review of the current process, council will now be arranging immediate tow of vehicles (in a burnt out condition) once clearance has been given by the police. Council’s Customer Response team will be asking officers to reassess the area, in cases where they believe the state of the vehicle may have impacted the road. If you would like any further information, or need to contact council for any other matter, please phone 5475 7272 to speak to a Customer Contact Officer.

Proposal for a TT in the Hinterland

How amazing is this proposal for a TT event to take place in the Hinterland! I have never met Mr Rollins but am in awe that he has had the vision and courage to not only come up with this idea but to put his money where his mouth is and follow his dream. I took the time to read Dr Traill’s editorial and although I understand people are naturally afraid of change, I fail to see that the disadvantageous noted in his editorial will in any way outweigh the advantageous an opportunity like this provides the local community. From what I understand this proposition has the potential to; showcase our area to the world creating better awareness of the Hinterland as a fantastic tourist destination, inject a massive amount of revenue into our community – suring up local businesses, creating local jobs and opportunities for our community. It will ensure that (at the very least) the 50km of road utilised for the event is upgraded and maintained to a high state of repair and upgrade communications – I may even be able to get service on my mobile at home!

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.

I can only assume that hosting an event like this will also put more pressure on local and state government to focus more on the needs of our community adding weight to arguments for infrastructure such as rail duplication etc. The other great thing about an annual event like this has the potential to be, is that if it’s not really your thing, there is a whole year to plan how it can best be avoided. I am in full support of this event and have already told the wife if it goes ahead be prepared to move up the range as I can think of nothing better than watching world class competitors run past my front gate for a few days a year – maybe I can make Dr Traill an offer on his place? Bring on a TT. Ben Heaton Glass House Mountains

A quick resident’s guide to purchasing an old home The Australian home ownership dream often features a detached character villa and a few hundred square metres of lush lawn. In fact, a recent study by Grattan Institute found almost 70 per cent of Australians think a residence being detached is one of the most important features when buying. When purchasing such a building, there’s a good chance it’ll be on the older side – which may give it plenty character but can also cause you trouble if you’re not prepared for every eventuality. So, to ensure unforeseen costs don’t lead to emergency home loan refinancing, we’ve whipped up this quick resident’s guide to buying an older home. A building inspection can help avoid unexpected costs when buying.A building inspection can help avoid unexpected 14

costs when buying. Organise building and pest inspections For obvious reasons older homes sometimes have issues with plumbing, electricity and structure, as well as the occasional pest problem. A structural fault or termite infestation can be costly to fix – in fact according to the Australian Pest Control Association, the cost of merely treating a termite problem can exceed $5,000 – so protect yourself by hiring a professional to perform a pre-purchase building report. Spend some time in the building Part of the character of an old building comes from its quirks and oddities, which are usually endearing but can be testing. After obtaining a pre-purchase report, the best way to uncover such issues is to simply spend time in the

home. According to a NSW Fair Trading fact sheet, it should take between half an hour and and hour to inspect the building yourself, getting a feel for the home while searching for signs of mould, rot and cracks on walls, and to review the hot water system’s size and age. The cost of merely treating a termite problem can exceed $5,000. Leave some wiggle room in your finances When purchasing an older building it’s a great idea to leave some extra “just in case funds” in your home loan. This can help cover issues that pop up after you’ve moved in or you might have missed during your own inspection, and can even go toward any unexpected or unavoidable disasters that may occur. It’s important that you have this wiggle room so that

you can hire a professional to quickly rectify these problems without having to refinance your home loan or descend into panic. If you need an extra hand you can contact local Smartline Mortgage Adviser Teresa Harrison for home loan advice.

Sleep apnoea: are you at risk?

With McCloy Dental Sleep apnoea is the new ‘big thing’ in medicine. Everywhere you look someone is being diagnosed with it. It has been blamed for traffic and shipping accidents, marriage break-ups and lots more. Snoring and sleep apneoa are not necessarily coincidental. People who are at risk include those with: BMI over 35, history of congestive cardiac failure, atrial fibrillation, high blood pressure that is not responsive to medication, type 2 diabetes, nocturnal cardiac arrhythmias, history of stroke, pulmonary hypertension, polycystic ovary syndrome, hypothyroidism, a retruded jaw, craniofacial syndromes associated with a retruded jaw or large tongue e.g. down syndrome, apert syndrome, for family history of obstructive apnoea. At McCloy Dental we have the experience to understand how all of these factors work together to affect the treatment that you should receive, and what will work for you. A mandibular advancement device is a first line treatment for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea, and in severe apnoea if you are unable to tolerate CPAP, or need it for times when CPAP is not appropriate or possible, such as camping trips. A mandibular advancement device is smaller and for most, more easily worn and tolerated. Call McCloy Dental to be assessed for something that may be life-changing.

Great Green Space for Glass House Mountains

Budget blow for Caloundra

I am very excited to confirm around 38 hectares of remarkable space in the Glass House Mountains is set to officially become the first District Park. I cannot thank our local community enough, working together with council, we now have an endorsed landscape plan which will see Glass House District Park become a great addition to our public park network. I’m positive this scenic parkland comprising of environmental reserve, lake and open space, will become one of those ‘must do’ places for locals and visitors. It should also eventually become a hub for community events and get-togethers. Even better, it’s been allocated $1.8 million in council’s 10 year Capital Works Program to progressively make the plan a reality.

The Caloundra Electorate has received very little from the State Budget, which is disappointing when our community is growing at an exponential rate. It’s a budget that is lacking a lot of detail. $25 million out of $100 million was allocated for the North Coast Rail upgrade but this is purely for studies and public consultation. At the 2015 State Election the LNP had committed in excess of $550 million to duplicate the North Coast Rail from Beerburrum to Landsborough. Clearly Labor has no timeline or commitment to build it.

Future planning for South East Queensland The Queensland Government is seeking ideas to help develop the South East Queensland Regional Plan. I strongly encourage all residents to have a say on the future of South East Queensland. All ideas will be carefully considered before a draft regional plan is released for further public consultation late in 2016. For more information visit

B2N Rail Upgrade Project As you know, I have long been a committed advocate for the North Coast Rail Line duplication from Beerburrum to Nambour. Council has submitted its feedback to the Queensland Government. We have used this as a key opportunity to explore how we can get the best social/economic outcomes as well as efficient transport ones in the townships most impacted.

Jobs plan for Caloundra Electorate The LNP has released its plan to get Queensland working again, which will create up to 20,000 jobs across the State. This includes giving young apprentices and tradies in Caloundra that vital first leg up with $500.00 towards new tools for apprentices upon completion of their training. Queensland businesses will also receive a $5,000 incentive for those who take on a new apprentice from the beginning to the end.

Caloundra Road Traffic – The Coast’s longest car park There has been strong support for the Action on Caloundra Road Traffic Congestion petition, calling on the State Government to work with Stockland to fast-track the completion of the Bells Creek Arterial to the Bruce Highway and investigate installing traffic lights and exit slip-lanes at the Caloundra Road/Nicklin Way roundabout. If you would like to sign the petition you can do so online (Google Qld E Petitions) or drop into my new office at 1A, 20 Ormuz Avenue, Caloundra.

Three of my fellow councillors also attended on the day and were impressed with how much the Twinnies and their support crew have been able to achieve.

Is tax time stressing you out? Are you finding it difficult to factor in the time to find an accountant you trust, let alone take the time out to schedule a sit-down appointment? Trilogy Tax at 15 Bunya Street, Maleny can help take the stress out of tax time with their flexible online options. Perfect for clients who work away or long hours, Trilogy Tax have everything online to help sort out your tax from the comfort of your own home or office. Their website has easy to find PDF forms for you to fill in and email through. The team at Trilogy Tax can then do an initial tax return with this information supplied. They will call you for any queries or suggestions, make any necessary adjustments to your tax return, and when you are completely happy, they will lodge your return for you. You even have the option to set up a Skype or Facetime meeting if you would like to speak ‘face to face’ but can’t make it to the office. After hours or Saturday appointments are also available by arrangement. Trilogy Tax has been part of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland since 1999, when Tanya Wilson first started her bookkeeping business. Over time, the practice has grown to become one of the largest accounting practices in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. In 2014, the name was changed to Trilogy Tax to better reflect their mission to provide clients with accurate, ethical and strategic advice and services. The beautiful old church building, opposite Maleny Primary School has also had a revamp to better reflect what Trilogy Tax is all about ... making tax time a calmer, more relaxed time for their clients. Bob Jarvis has owned Trilogy Tax for the past 12 months and brings with him over 25 years experience; 17 in corporate and five teaching. Now he wants to use those skills to help ‘Mum and Dad’ wage earners and small to medium businesses thrive without the added tax stress. “People like us because we explain things to them in their language,” says Bob. “We are trying to de-stress tax and make tax easy for you. We like to tell our clients, ‘Don’t you stress about it ... let us do that for you’.” Original owner, Tanya Wilson is well known to locals and has been involved with the bookkeeping and accounting industry for over 27 years. She started her own business in 1999 called ‘Complete Business Books and Records’ in the township of Maleny and the business has grown to what it is today, in part due to her commitment to her clients and glowing referrals from these clients. With Bob, Tanya, fellow accountant, and Jane Maitke who has been at Trilogy Tax for the past eight years, plus a staff of full-time, part-time and mobile bookkeepers, Trilogy Tax has everything your business needs under one roof. From business advice, to self-managed super funds, Trilogy Tax can help you make sense of it all.

with Lea Parkes

Cappriccio's Italian Restaurant On the second State of Origin game night I managed to convince Brownie (sadly a NSW supporter) that we should head out to our favourite local Italian restaurant Cappriccios at Maleny before the game got underway. Fortunately for us, the restaurant had re-opened after taking a well deserved break. Owner / Chef Phil Vendetti seemed very relaxed and refreshed which was probably handy for the rush of 'Footie Fans' ordering take away pizzas for the big night. I figured we wouldn't need a booking, that we’d be able to get a table as most of the Queensland supporters probably wouldn’t want to leave their nice warm homes on the night. And yes I was right. For the first time ever we managed to get the best table in the house (in winter) the one right beside the roaring fire. And while there weren’t many of us dining in on the night, the staff were definitely kept under the

pump, with take-away orders! Having tried the garlic bread previously we went for sharing Foccacia for an entrée which was topped with sundried tomato, garlic and herbs with a sprinkling of mozzarella – really flavoursome and very filling. Brownie has a standard favourite pizza, the Margaretta, with the added treat of anchovies so his order was a no brainer. I decided that instead of having a really creamy pasta, I would go for something different – Steak Dianne. And the meat was just melt in your mouth satisfying. Owner / chef Phil told me the steak was sourced through the butcher from one of their neighbouring shops at the Riverside. As you can see by the photo the meal had a very creamy sauce, but as it was served with a very big crunchy ‘undressed’ side salad, that would have to count as improving the ‘health rating’ of the meal.

By this stage I had already decided on my dessert which was to be one of the tempting Gelatos on offer. Being winter while I was tempted with the Pineapple Sorbet, instead I had chosen the ‘After Dinner Mint’ which the menu describes as Crème de Menthe combined with a smooth chocolate gelato. Sadly this was the one disappointment of the night – I just couldn’t possibly fit it in. So my plan for next time is to start on the dessert menu, which we hear is soon to see some changes. We couldn’t nail down what it might involve. However, Phil seemed to think we would be happy with the changes and we will just have to wait to be surprised next time. So my tip would be, if you are planning to head into Cappriccios in the upcoming cooler months – make sure you phone ahead and book one of the tables closest to the fireplace.

Winter is here – and so are colds and flu! with Billie from BL Natural Health Here are my 5 top tips for head colds: 1. Gargle with salt water. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of salt in half a cup of warm water and gargle until all the water is used up. Repeat 3 times a day. 2. Garlic is one of the best antiviral and antibacterial natural products - use it in everything you can. Make up a garlic Oxymel (recipe below) at the beginning of winter. Take 3 teaspoons per day. 3. Reduce sugar and white flour. Both increase inflammation. Sugar also competes with vitamin C for uptake into your cells. Your immune cells need vitamin C to fight those nasty bugs. 4. Avoid mucus forming foods (milk, cheese, yoghurt, chocolate, bananas). 5. Eat nourishing whole foods (chicken soup, citrus with the pith and the white part of the skin, shitake mushrooms and Manuka honey) and drink plenty of fluids, mainly water and herbal teas. Finally go to bed and rest.




JULY 6 2016

Garlic Oxymel 30g garlic (approx. 10 cloves) peeled and smashed 4g (1 heaped tsp) fennel seeds (optional) 4g (1 heaped tsp) caraway seeds (optional) 6 cloves (optional) 100mL organic apple cider vinegar 40 mL (approx 2 tbs) honey – raw, organic 1. Put seeds and vinegar in a small pot and gently warm for a few minutes – do not boil! 2. Add honey until combined. 3. Poor over garlic and let steep (up to 24 hours). The longer you leave it, the stronger/hotter it will taste. 4. Strain and put in a dark glass bottle - sterilise the bottle before use. Adults: Take 1 teaspoon 3 - 6 times a day at the first sign of a cold or during colds/flu. Store the Oxymel in the cupboard for up to 12 months, preferably in a dark glass jar. The vinegar, garlic and honey are all anti-bacterial so it is unlikely to go off.

Glasshouse Musos and dreams of a wildgoose

Those heading along to the ‘Glasshouse Musos night' at the Beerwah Hotel on Tuesday, July ford Slea ina Dev Photo by 12 will have an extra special performance by Ann Leung, performing songs from her album, accompanied by Rebecca Wright on cello and Chris Hall on bass, from 8.00pm. Considered ‘mute’ at childhood, Brisbane Singer/Songwriter, Ann Leung, has overcome a lifelong aversion to singing, to find her voice some 45 years later. Malaysian born Chinese, Ann Leung landed in Brisbane when she was three. Overwhelmed and bewildered by a new country full of ‘strange looking fair skinned kids’, Leung transformed overnight from a chatterbox to a shy, reserved toddler, and for over 12 months didn’t speak to anyone outside of her family. “In Kindergarten, I particularly detested sitting around the piano, singing unfamiliar nursery rhymes, and doing silly hand gestures,” Ann recalls. “I always felt self-conscious and never understood why others seemed to enjoy it.” After learning classical guitar at school, her guitar gathered dust for over 30 years, before in 2009, she joined friends “for fun” to form the band, Diddly Squat. “Twelve months after playing regularly with the band, I accidentally wrote my first song. A few weeks later came another, and another,” she said. Leung says the joy of discovering a new creative outlet and means of self-expression, meant learning to sing became a necessary, if somewhat terrifying progression. The journey has taken her on a rollercoaster of experiences including sobbing in a singing workshop at Mt Tamborine, when she discovered she might have a voice, to performing live on national TV with Diddly Squat as part of ABC’s Exhumed TV series in 2013. Then more recently, working with award winning guitarist and musician Michael Fix to release her debut album, titled ‘Dreams of a wildgoose’. “My name in Chinese means ‘wildgoose’” explains Ann of the album title. Glasshouse Musos, Tuesday, July 12 at Beerwah Hotel from 7.00pm – 10.00pm and entry is free.

Let’s talk Tourism If you are a Tourism Business Operator or someone that is interested in expanding tourism in the Glasshouse Country region please come along to our next general meeting. GUEST SPEAKER: Simon Latchford, A/CEO Visit Sunshine Coast

OK, so you have recorded your album and now you want to take it on the road, but without a marketing campaign you’re not giving yourself your best shot, and this is where a lot of artists become unstuck. They have worked hard to get to this point and now they just want the music to speak for itself. A friend of mine – Ann Leung, recently produced her first album and did a brilliant job on the marketing side. I sent her this email following her album launch: ‘Ann, the CD launch was a fantastic showing for your album - the room was just the right size, the vibe great, and the songs came up wonderfully. And what a backing band, can you keep it together? I want to offer you huge congratulations on the success of this project. Your marketing of it has been a model for new songwriters/CD producers. It takes a lot of guts to put yourself out there, but it is the only way you can get your head above the crowd. Most artists who make an album today fall down on the marketing side. The product might be excellent (often is), but how will anyone know it exists or bother to buy it unless it is right there in the face, not once, but time and again. So, lots of publicity, a launch, copies to radio and reviewers, a web page and Facebook site and newsletter (every three months or so) promoting you and your work, and then lots of gigs promoting and selling the product is the way to go, and you are doing it, good on you.’ Many song writers do get the first parts right: write some good songs, team up with a studio and if needed, some performers to make a good album, produce an impressive CD cover with booklet, and produce 200 or 500 or even 1000 copies, but then stop… And I can understand why they stop. They had expected the world to recognise them immediately and when it doesn’t, their energy for the project just falls away. It is an unfortunate reality of life today that the marketing side of your venture is what will win success for it. The product itself is only a small part of the package.

Eight week challenge success Plus Fitness Beerwah manager Josie is pleased to announce the winners of their recent eight week challenge – congratulations to Matthew Carter and Jess Dale. Each has won a $200 Rebel Sport voucher which brought a smile to their faces … however their individual achievements were the things to really cheer about. Matthew lost 14.5kg (an amazing total of 22kg this year to date!), 61cm and 10.5% body fat. Jess lost 6.3kg, 41cm and 6.2% body fat. When asked what they felt about their journeys, Matthew said, “It was really great, I lost all the weight I wanted to, I’ve learnt how to exercise more efficiently, I’ve changed my diet (eating more now than ever!) and made some good mates in the process – I feel so much stronger and fitter.” Jess agreed with Matthew, and added, “I have learnt so much about the whole cycle of fitness; diet, types of exercise and commitment, as well as enjoying the social side of it too. Training with friends makes it so much fun!” With more challenges coming up in July and September, please call Josie and the team on 5439 0100 for further details.

Age is no barrier with Business feature

Corey Magee is a young man with a keen desire to set himself up financially. Having worked solidly around the country since leaving school, Corey has developed a number of different transferable skills working in the construction, tiling, block laying and landscaping industries. While Corey has already achieved many financial goals, at the relatively young age of 24, motivated by becoming his own boss – Corey has become a Saver6. com branded small business through the Transportable Shade Shed reseller opportunity. When Corey first left school he got into building sheds. He then moved into tiling; working successfully in both Sydney and Canberra. From here he decided to move to Cairns and took up work landscaping and doing outdoor feature work. Corey briefly returned to tiling before heading up to Darwin to learn about block laying. For the last couple of years, Corey has dreamt of being his own boss. Moving back to the Ballina area he was keen to look into business opportunities and saw the appeal of a potentially viable income stream by becoming a small business reseller of Transportable Shade Sheds. In February of this year, Corey established himself as a reseller around the Ballina and Tweed area with his business ‘East Coast Transportable Shade Sheds’. Having spent many years working outdoors and having previously built sheds, Corey was impressed by the variety of uses that the sheds could service as well as their adaptable design and easy installation. “I like that you can put these sheds up anywhere and just like the name says they are fully transportable,” says Corey. “Once installed they can be moved easily around a property if required. The sheds can be extended to be made higher or wider and they don’t require cement footings – they can be anchored directly into the ground.” One of the biggest drawcards for resellers is that they are selling a solid, well crafted Australian manufactured product, constructed in Landsborough. Resellers are also backed by the ongoing collaboration between Transportable Shade Sheds and – the online business mentoring and support platform which can assist them with their online promotion and digital presence across a number of digital platforms including eBay, Saver6 Magazine, Gumtree and Facebook. Corey is determined to realise his dream. While he is keen to explore all the opportunities he can around his current area he is already looking ahead at further business prospects interstate. One of the advantages of being a reseller with your own fully equipped trailer is that his business is 100% mobile and Corey has the opportunity to earn income and fulfil his passions. If you know someone looking for a Transportable Shade Shed in the Ballina and surrounding area contact him via social media by searching East Coast Transportable Shade Sheds or call direct on 0467 545 707. If you would like the opportunity to work and travel, contact the team at Transportable Shade Sheds on 1300 667 433 or on 07 5405 3620.

Please call Corey Magee, a member and a Transportable Shade Shed specialist. He is available to help you with your Transportable Shade Shed purchase, from your initial enquiry, right through to installing it on your property. Give him a call today!

Coastal Banksia

Banksia integrifolia What is more synonymous with the Australian bush then May Gibbs’ Snugglepot and Cuddlepie and the Big Bad Banksia Men? Coastal Banksia is one of the common banksias found in our area of the Sunshine Coast. They grow happily in sandy soils of the coast or up into the mountains. The Coastal Banksia is quite variable in form and often forms a small tree up to 20m tall. In open exposed sites it may only grow to a small wind swept shrub less than 5m tall. They often develop an attractive gnarled twisted trunk. The flowers start off a beautiful lime yellow and age to a striking brown as they mature. The hard seed capsule loses most of its hairy stamens and stays on the plant for years. The leaves are dark green on the upper surface and almost white underneath. Banksias provide a pollen and nectar source for small mammals, birds and bees. In some areas, Aboriginal people used to soak the nectar rich flowers and drink the sweet drink from this. They would also use the smoldering banksia cones to carry fire with them. Why don’t you plant a beautiful Banksia integrifolia or one of our other banks species in your backyard and share with your children the wonderful stories of May Gibbs?

Artesian Springs and Faith

I have always been intrigued by oddities in nature which seem to puzzle the best minds. Perhaps you have had that experience too. Today I expect to be out in western Queensland helping two of my grandchildren experience the wonders of artesian water coming freely from a pipe from a reservoir hundreds of metres below their feet. It will be hot, have a pungent odour and arrive at the surface under pressure. They will experience having their evening shower in hot water directly from one of these bores. Of course I will persuade them that it will be safe and sensible to shower with this water which smells so different to the chlorinated variety they use back home in their coastal citifies. By then they should have no difficulty accepting the experience. In the last few days they have seen for the first time fossilised dinosaur bones in Richmond and Winton. They have got their minds around the process of the past presence, death and fossilisation of these strange creatures. And as part of that experience they have seen the preserved footprints of several different sized dinosaurs at Lark Quarry outside Winton.

Glasshouse Country Baptist Church 9am Sunday, 58 Roberts Rd Beerwah All welcome! Enquiries: 5494 6354 Midweek craft, kids and youth programs – see

Creatures formed by God, yet they do not exist anymore. Sometimes we cannot explain everything to our personal satisfaction. I struggled with the existence of dinosaurs and their demise. But now, having seen solid evidence of them on many occasions and having looked at that evidence rationally in light of my faith, I have no difficulty with their existence and my belief in the authority and authenticity of the Bible. I do have some difficulties with the current understanding of the timeframe of their existence and extinction. Which leads me to the topic of faith. Faith in God, and the salvation provided through the death of Jesus of Nazareth on the cross close to two millennia ago, requires confidence in the scriptures. Through that same faith it is possible to only partially understand and yet still accept that Salvation personally. I guess one day we will have all our questions answered. Even questions about dinosaurs.

Sport Beerwah Splash Swim Club The Beerwah Splash Swimming Club folded about five years ago and over the last two -three years a number of enthusiastic parents have struggled to get the club going again. The good news is, they have been making positive progress and are keen to spread the word and encourage other families to join up. Club Secretary, Karen May said while the club is very much a family club with a focus on participation, fun and enjoying the healthy sport of swimming during the last season, some of the members did compete in a number of swim meets. Eight members recently travelled to Bundaberg to compete in the Fairymead Short Course Meet and two of the club members, Emma May and Jaymes Roser, both qualified for Queensland State Short Course. Emma will compete in the 400 Freestyle and 400 IM and Jaymes will compete in the 50m Freestyle and 50m Breaststroke in August. “We’re starting our swim season with Splash! We would love those with an interest in joining to come (from age five and up and able to swim

Sign on will be held on Thursday, September 8 and 15 at 4.30pm and the first club night will be held on Thursday, October 6 at the Beerwah Pool. For new members there will be free trial night vouchers available at sign on days. Contact with any enquiries.

Contributed by Pam Marsden and Carolyn Gamble Thursday, June 23: saw the last day of the Ladies Singles Championships being played on a cool winter day on a heavy course. We were very pleased to welcome our Championship sponsors, Christine Eaton representing Halcyon, Michael Topfer representing Matilda Fruit Barn and Brenda Gormley representing Club Super, to present trophies to all the winners and to share a lovely lunch prepared by our hard working kitchen/bar staff. The value of good sponsorship cannot be under estimated and we sincerely thank them for their generous support. The day ran seamlessly due to all the hard work put in by our Ladies Captain Lea Garner and her Vice Captain Lyn Steele and all the girls on Committee. Congratulations go to all the winners and also to all who completed the 72 hole event played over four days. Great effort.

Contributed by Ian Hansen Monday’s Monthly Jackpot Pairs: winners with two wins +29 were the Mapleton Pair of Ray Burge and Brian Read. The Runners-up with + 24 in the second game were the Kilcoy Pair of Lee Irwin and Lester Bechley. The jackpot wasn’t won when –15 was drawn and the lucky Raffle Winners were Rob Schoyer, Joe Walters and Bill Edwards. Tuesday’s winners with two wins +5 were Relma Godfrey and Sandra Kapetanic. The jackpot of $72.00 wasn’t won. Wednesday’s Twilight Challenge: Despite the chill in the air there was an excellent roll-up with 42 players present. The winning Teams were:- Tutors, Cookies, Ezi Riders, Mavericks and Handles. The individual winners were:Lead - Scott Alexander, Second - Toni Walters and Skip - David Coffey. The Touchers went to Allan Cook, Margaret Ginns and Kay Gesch. The Money Board winners were Paul Mellick and Steve Porter. Friday’s Scroungers: winners on their respective rinks were:- Tom Ukolla, Jim King, Heather Snel, Dennis Kyling and visitor Roger Cross. The only Sponsors’ Prize winner present to claim his prize was John Lewis who won the Colin James’ prize. The lucky Money Board winner was Matt Fulton. In the Men’s Singles championships played, Ian Hansen again had a close struggle with another new bowler in David Burgess and scraped in 25 shots to 19. Warwick Moody had a surprisingly easy win over Ray Oldfield, Curley Petersen easily accounted for Joe Walters, and Jim King despite a very spirited comeback from 14 to one down lost to Graeme Glover 25 shots to 21. In the Men’s Pairs, Allan Cook and Warwick Moody defeated Tony Snel and Graeme Glover 24 shots to 10, Miles Allen and David Burgess beat the much more experienced Ray Oldfield and Les Bennett 26 shots to 12, Curley Petersen and Ian Hansen beat David Austin and Joe Walters 38 shots to 18 and Jim King and Don Ginns had the bye. In Singles, Ian Hansen plays Warwick Moody in one semifinal and Curly Petersen plays Graeme Glover in the other. In the men’s pairs, Allan Cook and Warwick Moody meet Miles Allen and David Burgess in one semi-final and defending champions Curly Petersen and Ian Hansen play Jim King and Don Ginns in the other. All these matches must be completed by Friday, July 15. Please advise Men’s President Allan Cook re these matches. There were only two Teams nominated for the Ladies Pairs so the match was a Final in which Margaret Ginns and Lucy Oldfield defeated Heather Snel and Jane Burgess 23 shots to 17 and so are the 2016 Ladies pairs Champions. Congratulations Margaret and Lucy and commiserations to Heather and Jane but you put up a very good effort against much more experienced bowlers. This week there was Jackpot Pairs/Triples Tuesday, the Twilight Challenge Wednesday and Scroungers Friday.

The most valuable strawberry Round 1 of the 2016 Super Strawberry Competition has created a new record: this is Greg Harvey’s entry, and we believe it must be the most valuable strawberry in the district this week! It came in as an entry in the 'most unusual' category – and if you need an

explanation, as he says, “it’s a hand!” Greg’s initiative really paid off, as the hand was the only entry in this round, and weighing in at a modest 40 grams, it was also the heaviest strawberry! So the prize for the weekly winner (a six-pack from Beerwah Hotel) goes to Greg. So start looking now, strawberry growers and pickers! It is worth bringing in any potential contender as it could be the best entry in next week’s field. The Super Strawberry Competition runs annually in conjunction with the Beerwah Charity Sports & Spring Carnival, and the champion will be announced at the sports day on Saturday, August 20. Round 2 closes on Friday, July 8; and you can bring entries in to Coochin Creek Co-op any time during the week, but before 4.00pm Friday. Ask for Heather, who will weigh and photograph your entries. Thanks to the Co-op and to Beerwah Hotel for supporting the competition again in 2016.

Glasshouse Bowls Club

Contributed by David Hayes Monday, June 27: Open Two Bowl Triples. Thankfully the rain held off for the day. Six rinks of bowls were played with teams from Glass House as well as Palmwoods, Woodford and Donnybrook taking part. Two games of 15 ends were played. Winners of the day were Eileen Pearce, Lloyd Walker and Judy Walker with two wins + 36 margin. Runners up were Clive Sinton, Gordon Dyer and Graham Richardson with two wins + 16 margin. The lucky team draw went to Don Tierney, Col Allen and John McSwain. Our first Jackpot didn’t go off so next month it will go up to $120.00. I encourage everyone to hang round for a beer after the game. Your team needs to be present for both the Lucky Draw and Jackpot. Next month’s game is Monday, July 25. Wednesday, June 29: the final of the Ladies Championship Triples was played. The winners were the team of Joy Sauer, Jenny Hobson and Di Hume who def Margaret Beasley, Wendy Platt and Chris Freshwater 23-12. In the social games, Viv James and Warren Blackbourne def Russell Walmsley and Dennis Hume 25-17. Lee Myers and Mike Kernick def Greg Sauer and Dave Clarke 15-14. Noelle Dean, Brian Larkin and John McSwain def Graham Myers, Lyn Griffiths and Doug Sweedman 25-15. Thursday, July 30: a great afternoon with the green completely full with bowls played on all rinks. As it was the 5th Thursday of the month I decided to change the format with members playing four games of six ends. The winners of the day, and the only team that had four wins were Don Tierney and Allan Pashby with four wins + 38. Runners up were Clive Sinton and Darryll Kull with three wins, a draw and a score of + 35. Lucky Draw went to Bob Bloomer and John Annakin. We also welcomed our first junior bowls

Share the details of your club’s Di Hume, Jenny Hobson and Joy Sauer member Jack Chirgwin who played his first game of bowls as a club member, and by all reports had a great time. Next Thursday’s game will be club selected. Wednesday, July 13 is the next Ladies Jackpot Bowls Day with the game starting at 9.30am. Get your teams of mixed triples in now. This is a great morning of bowls with the Jackpot bound to go off soon. Round 1 of our pennant season started over the weekend. Division 2 played at home against Bribie Island.

Next week they are off to Bribie Island. Good luck! On Sunday, August 7 our club is hosting the next Police Bowls Day, the Iona Challenge. This day is sponsored by Terry and Liz Little and there will be up to $400.00 in prizes. I encourage all members to come along for a game.

Just for Laughs One eyed redhead

A man was dining alone in a fancy restaurant and there was a gorgeous redhead sitting at the next table. He had been checking her out since he sat down, but lacked the nerve to talk with her. Suddenly she sneezed, and her glass eye came flying out of its socket towards the man. He reflexively reached out, grabbed it out of the air, and handed it back. "Oh my, I am so sorry," the woman said, as she popped her eye back in place. "Let me buy your dinner to make it up to you." They enjoyed a wonderful dinner together, and after wards they went to the theatre followed by drinks... They talked, they laughed, she shared her deepest dreams and he shared his.

She listened to him with interest. After paying for everything, she asked him if he would like to come to her place for a nightcap and stay for breakfast. They had a wonderful, wonderful time. The next morning, she cooked a gourmet meal with all the trimmings. The guy was amazed. Everything had been so incredible! "You know," he said, "you are the perfect woman. Are you this nice to every guy you meet?' "No," she replied. "You're just the first man who happened to catch my eye." Hugh Jones, Beerwah

SCORPIO October 23 – November 22 The New Moon in the first week of July, shines upon your future plans, especially those involving travel. Perhaps you might want to move somewhere else and this can be an excellent month for promoting yourself and your interests. Keep your expectations practical, rather than chasing a pie in the sky! A mind-expanding week. SAGITTARIUS November 23 – December 22 With the Sun, Mercury and Venus starting the month in the emotional water sign of Cancer, this does mean that you are not your more casual, less attached spirit. You will feel the potency of feelings so see if you may connect better with loved ones. Expect to find yourself in a mood of generosity, sensitivity and good will. CAPRICORN December 23 – January 19 The New Moon, with other planetary bodies, brings to you a surge of energy into your relationship dynamics. Perhaps this will stir up urges within you to make long desired changes! There are endings and beginnings, however they don’t have to be a breaking point, rather a temporary separation. Skillful alliance building now. AQUARIUS January 20 – February 19 The first week of July sees the New Moon in your sector of physical health, daily routines and being of service to others. Take time to attend some lovely social outings and accept the goodwill of others. With intuitive energy being expressed by the Sun in the sign of Cancer, it’s time to get the house in order over the next week.

PISCES February 20 – March 20 With the New Moon in the sign of Cancer, together with Mercury and Venus and Neptune in your own sign, you have a triangle of water signs to make you emotionally energised. You should be receiving high intuition and psychic ideas from all directions. Mars in this triangle moving through Scorpio now will see things in a brand new light. ARIES March 21 – April 20 The first week of July sees the New Moon emphasising your home and your family. This gives you time to think about what is needed to make a fresh start, that may bring the family together emotionally, and provide security. Home and family affairs are your top priority. Enjoy nesting in the comforts of home with family. TAURUS April 21 – May 21 This week, and perhaps the whole month, pertains to things around your locality. There may be neighbourhood events that involve a library, a community fair, a raffle, shopkeepers and sales and marketing. There are strong signals towards a romantic liaison. Perhaps this is the time for a new relationship if needed. GEMINI May 22 – June 21 The first week with the New Moon sees the emphasis upon personal belongings, money earnings and expenditures. It may be a good month for buying and selling. There could be somebody in the background creating power struggles over your money.

Week beginning 06/07/2016 CANCER June 22 – July 22 The planets Venus and Mercury, are working with the power of the Sun in your sign, meaning a lovely month of sensitive loving to home and family. You may find success through taking leadership. Time for new projects and of course changes always begin with this new power cycle of the Sun moving through the sign of Cancer. LEO July 23 – August 22 This may be a strange month as the emphasis will be with contacts made with hospitals and doctor’s visits. Perhaps there is a need to find security within yourself and so if you feel like cocooning yourself it is quite alright to have a withdrawal time. Practice a mind/body/spirit exercise, making peace with old wounds. VIRGO August 23 – September 22 The New Moon in the first week of July underscores your social life and group involvements. It begins with new group associations, or heading out to new social places with your best friends. Perhaps you are inspired to move into a specific direction or about a special person. The month is an active networking period for you. LIBRA September 23 – October 22 July opens up its first week favourable for your domestic property affairs, bringing emotional urgencies to your career. This is the time to relay on your gut feelings and tap into your intuition, so that if you are an artist the creative muse is flowing and it’s time to express your innermost self. Good reputation as a people pleaser!
