Hi Everyone


n page 4 we have included a statement from Senior Constable Len Elliott, from Beerwah Police Station who in his duty as a police Officer on Good Friday was involved in a serious traffic incident that saw him badly injured and having a leg amputated. Although I don’t know Senior Constable Len Elliott personally – over the years I have met many local police officers, who I would sum up as regular fellas (and girls) doing a tough job. No doubt, just like the rest of us when we head out the door to go off to work, we expect to return home at the end of the day. But as things transpired on Good Friday, Senior Constable Len Elliott’s life will never be the same, and he still hasn’t made it back home. He wasn’t participating in an extreme sport, or taking crazy risks to pursue an adrenaline rush, sadly he was just doing his job protecting the rest of us that regularly travel along Steve Irwin Way. His statement is heartfelt and positive, sharing his appreciation for those that have been there for him since the event took place. I would like to say to him ‘thank you for all you did for our community’ and we wish you well in your recovery. Regards,

Locals take on Kokoda Challenge For local girls Jo Davies and Louise Bond it wasn’t a difficult decision to enter a grueling 96 kilometres walk over 39 hours, called the ‘Kokoda Challenge’


Jo said the Kokoda Challenge was a great cause, one that would help raise important funds for the Kokoda Challenge Youth Program, which helps young people build life skills and confidence. “As a Registered Nurse at the Caboolture Hospital Mental Health Facility, I regularly care for young 12/60 Simpson Street, BEERWAH clients,” she said.

How will these projects effect the domestic market? bill. The small domestic installation of solar adds only 0.8%.

Energex embraces battery storage for households Since the State Government announced the end of the 8¢per kW hour export incentive, Energex has been working on adjusting its business model to suit the changed situation.

Now, larger systems are being permitted Because the State Government – via its Energex involvement – is no longer paying 8¢ out of revenue, the previous 5kW solar system limitation is critical. It is planned that customers in most instances will be permitted to install a roof top solar system UP TO 30kW. The proviso is that in most instances NO solar energy produced is to be exported to the grid.

But why?? The benefit to the customer is that ALL of the power produced can be used on the premises and on/or stored in batteries for use when the sun sets.

Such a system WILL slash the electricity bills of daylight operated businesses by about 80% or more. That means the money saved in electricity will pay for the cost of the system WITHOUT ANY

CHANGE TO CASH FLOW. BYD batteries lead the world BYD (a company that Warren Buffet has an interest in) is the

world leader in lithium ion batteries for solar storage (which have a 20+ year lifespan). SO GOOD are these batteries, that they are used in 100% of the battery operated municipal buses throughout the world. They will be operating in Melbourne and Sydney in a few months. They perfectly match with existing and future solar systems. The batteries are packaged like a 4 drawer office filing cabinet – neat and tidy on castors and are easy to use “plug and play” type systems, and roll away if you sell.

A statement from Senior Constable Len Elliott of Beerwah Police Station

Beerwah I was involved in a traffic incident on the

evening of Good Friday that resulted in the amputation of my right leg. I would like to thank many people including: Members of the public for all the messages of support, cards, flowers and gifts. My colleagues from Beerwah Station including my Officer in Charge, Bruce Duck. I want to pay special thanks to Darren Tonkins and Conan Sawyer who were the first officers on the scene and my valued workmates. They gave me the initial care I needed and kept on supporting and encouraging me until medical help arrived. The police community as a whole for all their support and encouragement. I have had regular visitors to the hospital and have been encouraged with jokes, laughter and Lindt chocolate. It is amazing how from the Commissioner down, the police family comes together to support one of their own when you are faced with hardship. They have also been very supportive of my family.

All of the Queensland Ambulance Service and the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital staff who have been wonderful and supportive and I am progressing well as a result of their care and attention. I cannot thank them enough for everything they have done for me. Can I deliver a timely reminder to everyone on the road. You need to adhere to the road rules and drive to the conditions of the road. When getting behind the wheel of a vehicle you have to expect the unexpected and please, just show courtesy to everyone on the road. I also want to pay special thanks to my extended family, who have helped my beautiful wife Janine and I in countless ways during the past two weeks. Finally, I want to thank my beautiful wife Janine and my three beautiful boys, Hayden, Kurt and Myles for their love and support during this challenging time in my life.

Are we missing out on tourism opportunities? Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce President Bob McLean is keen to bring local tourism operators together for a discussion forum that will get the ball rolling on a collaborative approach to how Glasshouse Country can attract and accommodate more visitors to the area. Bob said the recent combination of the Easter – Anzac day weekends had created excellent opportunities for the drive tourist to take a short break in Glasshouse Country. And while day visitor’s numbers were probably up, Bob thinks we missed on extended visits because of the lack of low cost accommodation. “The challenge now is, for innovative opportunities to be explored, maybe to provide low cost accommodation, not in the national parks but on suitable sited non-productive private land adjacent to the parks,” Bob said. Are you interested in local tourism, local

accommodation, hospitality and food, nature based tourism activities, land management, and creating local jobs? The Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce Inc. invites you to attend a discussion forum at the Glasshouse Mountains Sports Club 11.30am to Chamber President 1.00pm on Thursday, May 22. Your views and Bob McLean ideas are important. The required outcome is formation of a Glasshouse Country tourism working group. RSVP by May 13 to: - president@

A Simple Life

Adopt a Digger Display

By Anne Snell

Have you ever felt that your life is a never ending spiral of working and spending, striving for the trappings of an affluent life that somehow leaves you unhappy or unfulfilled? Are your days full and your home just a place to fall into bed at the end of each busy day? Glasshouse Country News spoke with Rhonda Hetzel, a very interesting woman from Landsborough, who came to this thought later in life and decided to do something about it. Rhonda is a retired journalist and technical writer who had all the trappings of a successful career and the whirlwind lifestyle that goes with it. She started to question the way she was living her life and decided to make some changes. She wanted to ‘work’ less and live more, so she started to think of ways to slow down, spend less and enjoy her time more. The results were surprising. Rhonda said if you haven't already discovered the power of your own home you are in for a delightful and beautiful shock. “Come closer and let me whisper in your ear, because if everyone knows this, it will cause a revolution. The work you do in your own home, by creating a warm and secure place for yourself and your family to live in, will enrich you and make you a different person. “It saved me from a life of ridiculous spending and mindless acquisition and slowed me down enough to allow me to see the beauty here,” she said. Rhonda took a close look at how she spent her money and started to shed the things that didn’t add to her joy of living.

She and her husband Hanno started to make changes to their home to make it cheaper to run and more environmentally friendly. Being a professional writer, Rhonda started a blog to share her ideas with whoever wanted to listen - and listen they did. Her following grew rapidly - you can view her blog at The blog was noticed by Penguin publishing, which approached Rhonda to write a book. She did this and ‘Down to Earth’ became an immediate best seller. She was making more and buying less. The backyard became an area of organic food production, her hens a source of eggs as well as a delightfully calming influence on the soul. She makes cleaning products, cheese, preserves and much more, and she wants to share it all. Her latest book ‘The Simple Life’ was published in March this year and is the story of Rhonda’s journey to a simple life and the lessons she has learned along the way. It is available as a Penguin special and will be the first of a series of little books focusing on different aspects of her new life. Rhonda says she has found true joy and fulfilment and she can see that she had been looking for that kind of satisfaction.

To commemorate the Anzac centenary and to honour ‘our boys’, Maureen Glover and the Beerwah Family History Group hosted a fantastic display of diggers local to the area. Visitors from as far away as Toowoomba and Newcastle have visited Beerwah Library especially to view the ‘Adopt a Digger’ display. The display featured the life, in war time and peace, of their Grandfather, Digger James Henry Judge. The Adopt a Digger website aims to create a data base which records the military (and some personal ) history of each man and woman from today's Sunshine Coast region who fought in World War 1. You may contribute to the site with your own research or visit to see if your family member is listed there. Photos, stories, memorabilia etc are always appreciated Check out the website

Three amigo’s take on Camino challenge to help others Local businessman Martin Vigar, Pharmacist / Proprietor of Auscare Pharmacy Glasshouse Mountains, is joining two of his friends to walk the 800km completing the historical Camino de Santiago trek to raise funds for the Safe Streets charity organisation and Brighter Future 4 Kids Foundation. The two other amigo’s joining Martin on this massive adventure are Glenn Ferguson, Managing Director of Ferguson Cannon Lawyers and Peter Poli, General Manager of Bridgestone Select Maroochydore, Caloundra and Maleny. Glenn recently took over the role as Chairman at Safe Streets. He says the focus of the charity is on the prevention of violence in the community. “The aim is to encourage a broad shift in attitude, throughout Queensland, to reject tolerance of all forms of violence,” Glenn said. “Everyone deserves to feel safe and live in a community free of violence.” He is also a Board member of The Brighter Future 4 Kids Foundation which aims to meet the physical and nutritional needs of disadvantaged children living in Australia through the implementation of ongoing, practical, sustainable school-based intervention programs to break the cycle of poverty. This is done by simple measures such as providing nutritional information and school shoes.

STIHL Chain Saws +FREE Esky ®



To raise funds for these two charities, the trio will head to Spain, where they will walk for over 30 days along the Camino de Santiago. The 1,000 year old pilgrimage route begins in the Basque region in France and stretches over 800km through the foothills of the Pyrenees to the Santiago de Compostela. Martin and Peter said they are truly excited to undertake the journey and joked they will donate something for each blister, which there are sure to be in the hundreds. Any donation is greatly appreciated. A small donation is like a small step forward on the Camino! You could donate one cent per kilometre or one dollar. The money raised goes directly to Safe Streets and Brighter Future 4 Kids. To follow Glenn, Peter and Martin’s progress or to make a donation please go to You can make a donation into the collection tins Auscare Pharmacy Glasshouse Mountains or Bridgstone at Maleny.

Students turn ideas into businesses Twelve Business, Design and Journalism students from the University of the Sunshine Coast learned how to turn business ideas into reality with the help of the region’s first Startup Weekend. Two Glasshouse Country students participated in the Startup Weekend that is a global grassroots movement of entrepreneurs involved in founding startup companies and launching successful ventures. Technology, digital and business mentors offer advice and hold workshops at the events, which are held around the world.

Participants at the start of this weekend’s event voted on which ideas were to be pursued in the 54-hour frenzy of business creation, ending with presentations to local entrepreneurial leaders. USC Lecturer in Entrepreneurship Dr Retha Scheepers said 12 USC students had grabbed the opportunity to gain ‘the ultimate practical learning experience’. Emjay Clerk (Design) of Glass House Mountains and Ann Ross (Accounting), of Beerburrum enjoyed the expertise and networking on offer at the Startup Weekend.

90th birthday an international event

Community News Laugh out loud

Glasshouse Country View Club Our guest speaker for our April luncheon was Lenore McDonald, an author and comedienne, who writes humorous anecdotes of life as an oldie. Lenore told many stories about our kids, mother-in-laws, husbands and any other life situations you could think about which I am sure most of our guests could relate to. After having been entertained and having a good laugh, some of our members purchased her books to share with family and friends. A great time was had by all. Just a reminder that we will be celebrating our 11th birthday on Wednesday, June 18. If you wish to come along and / or bring a friend please ring Rosalea on 5438 7910. The luncheon is being held at the Glasshouse Mountains Sports Club at a cost of $27.00. This year The Smith Family’s Winter Appeal is highlighting that every day, disadvantaged children are at risk of falling through the cracks.

The sad story is that one in 10 Australian children lives with disadvantage. Without the education basics and support they need, they’re left behind in class. As the gap between them and their classmates widens, there’s a huge risk they’ll give up and drop out of school early. But you can change their story, by donating to The Smith Family. You can help bridge this gap by giving these children access to Smith Family learning and support programs they need to stay on track with their education and allow them to reach their potential. If you wish to help these children consider joining the Glasshouse Country View Club by phoning Margaret on 5435 2172. Vice President Heather Burton with Lenore McDonald

Peachester District Horticulture Society Contributed by Patricia Bradford (Publicity Officer) LeJardine nursery and cafe at Maleny was a beautiful venue for the April meeting. Great servings of home baked goodies with tea and coffee was enjoyed before the meeting. Theo and Rita Beenders spoke about highlights of their visit to the Nambour Garden Club for their Friendship day. They also commented about the size of the club; it has over 200 members. Coral Beutel couldn’t resist buying this Camellia

Some members spoke about problems with pests eating everything in the garden; they’re very bad at the moment. Scrub turkeys are proving to be a real problem in one garden. After the meeting, members wandered around the nursery and many purchased more plants for their gardens. The next meeting is on Thursday, May 15, 9.30am at Jeff and Robs place, Peachester. Visitors are always welcome. For directions to venue phone 5496 9169, please bring along a chair and mug. For more information phone 5496 9169.

contributed by Amy Ratcliffe Over 100 people gathered on Easter Saturday to celebrate the 90th birthday of Stinne Job in Glass House Mountains at the home of her daughter Isabel Vere. Stinne was born in Denmark and migrated to Australia in 1971 with her husband Brian and five of her six children. They owned and operated the Log Cabin Caravan Park for many years, and while she now resides near Noosa, Stinne has such special memories of her time living in Glass House. There were 18 family members who made the big trip from Denmark to mark the celebration including two-year-old triplets. Other family and friends came from Perth, Tasmania, Cairns and throughout Queensland. Stinne was delighted to have letters of congratulations presented to her at the party from the Prime Minister, Clive Palmer MP, Mayor Mark Jamieson and Cr Tim Dwyer. The celebration included Danish traditional songs, happy birthday played on saxophone by Stinne’s great-grandson Luke and lots of great stories and memories.

Natural Tranquillity in the Mountains

Glass House resident Yvonne Hortin has just released a booklet of inspirational verse that reflects her love of the area. Written from the heart, this self published title seeks to translate to readers the majesty and wonder of the Glass House Mountains. Yvonne hopes to entice people to visit their splendid natural beauty and in doing so she wishes visitors “to experience and soak up the energies they emit, and to gain peace and tranquillity which will rejuvenate their soul.” A registered nurse and midwife, Yvonne now practices complimentary therapies aided by her studies of the Bardic Course. It was during these studies that Yvonne found a medium for expressing herself and realised that she thoroughly enjoyed putting together written works. Accompanied by beautiful local photography, this personal journey captures the essence and specialty of the area. To purchase a copy call 5493 0982 or 0429 939 120 or visit

Contributed by the Combined Probus Club For our April outing, a group of Probians caught the early train to visit the Qld Railways Heritage Workshops and Museum at Ipswich. We got to meet some true Aussie characters as we stepped into a real heritage railway workshop and saw it in operation, just as it has been for over 140 years. We saw genuine restoration of the Heritage Steam Train Fleet up close and heard living history from railway workers plus a few tall stories! For many of us this visit was quite nostalgic. Our May meeting is on Wednesday, May 14 starting at 10.00am. Our speaker is Annette Henderson who travelled the Sahara Desert in a VW Kombi and will share her many stories of achievement and survival. We provide a free morning tea and our members bring along a small plate of food to share for lunch. Are you new to the Hinterland area or recently retired? Come along and see what we are about. We are a group of ladies / gents who no longer work full time, but provide opportunities to keep minds active, expand interests, build relationships and enjoy the fellowship of new friends. We participate in monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of the month and enjoy an outing each month as well as enjoy sub groups of mah jong, book club and coffee mornings. Our May meeting will be held at the Beerwah Community Hall, adjacent to the library. Next month we will be back to our usual venue at the Glasshouse Mountains Sports Club.

The Peachester Art Show

The recent event was a huge success for the school and the community. The event raised $4,000.00 towards playground improvements and air-conditioning classrooms. For the exhibiting artists, 34 pieces of work were sold, with art sales totalling $7,000.00 over the weekend. The Art Show committee estimate 400 people attended the weekend exhibition, which they considered a brilliant result. The Peachester school children also exhibited their pieces and enjoyed seeing their work displayed as part of the exhibition.

School News from Felicity Tasker

School News Remembrance, gratitude and national pride Contributed by Kylie Merola The first week of term two at Landsborough State School was all about commemorating Anzac Day. On Wednesday, April 23, Year 6 and 7 students travelled to Anzac Square in Brisbane to participate in the Anzac Commemoration for students. They felt privileged to be involved in this deeply memorable experience to recognise and reflect on the sacrifice of others. On Thursday, April 24, around 300 staff and students gathered for the school's annual Anzac Day ceremony. Special guests included Sgt Peter Livingstone from 1st Regiment Royal Australian Army Artillery, Gunner Simon Johnston, Ross Horne from Landsborough Glasshouse RSL and Rick Joyce from the Landsborough Masonic Lodge. Hosted by student leaders, the assembly included a meaningful slideshow presentation of war time images, a performance by the school choir, a reading of the ‘Ode to the Fallen’, the ‘Prayer of Remembrance’, one minute silence and the ‘Last Post’. It was a moving tribute to honour all service personnel, both past and present. Friday, April 25, saw Landsborough State School participate in the local community Anzac Day events. At the Landsborough cenotaph, they laid handmade wreaths prepared by the students of each class. This was followed by a march down Cribb Street and concluded with a service at the Landsborough Community Hall. School Principal, Kristy Walton, was pleased to see so many students turn out to participate. "Students learn about the significance of Anzac Day in the classroom. It is fantastic to then see them choose to come along to the community events of their own accord. They recognise how important it is to honour and remember all the Anzacs who fought for our freedom," she said.

Glasshouse Country Christian College correspondent

Their spirit, our history

ANZAC Day celebrates the spirit of courage and bravery of our soldiers who went to war and fought for our freedom. One day a year we gather to pay our respects to the men and women that have been able to return home and also to the ones who haven’t. So, on April 25 I went to the Beerwah ANZAC Day parade, and I marched alongside some of my fellow students. I was nervous on the day because I didn’t know what to do. It was my first ever ANZAC Day march. I found where the people from my school were standing and saw our college captains getting ready to lead our school in the parade. However, it was a seemingly insignificant moment, which created my most distinct memory of the event. A man came up and asked if he could get a photo with our college captains. After the photo, he went to walk away and I asked him if I could fix the back of his collar up for him. He said, “yes” and also asked if I could do the tiny little buttons up that hold the front of the collar down. Once again he replied, “yes.” I asked him a few questions and it turned out that he had served in the army for 30 years. I felt it was an honour to have met this man and to have offered a small act of assistance. I went on to march with my head held high and with respect. It was amazing to march, to know about the men and women who served us proud, and that every name on every memorial wall in this country will be remembered. Lest We Forget.

Student Leaders Investiture

Congratulations to Glass House Mountains State School’s new student leaders who celebrated their Investiture recently. They were supported by many family members who enjoyed meeting after the ceremony. Sincere thanks go to past school captain Cerissa Enright for addressing our students. Cerissa shared her journey while she was a school captain in 2003.

The entries were judged by local artist Aannsha Jones, CWA member Simone Turner, and school teacher Anna de Oliveira. For the month of May the winning entries will be on display at The Beerwah Library. Beerwah CWA president Del Davis presented the winning students in school parade with their prizes.

How does rental property work with income deductions? If you’re considering taking out home loans and purchasing investment property in the near future, it could be worth looking into the various tax obligations and deductions that can be embraced in the long run. These could potentially act as a draw card for you to pursue your property goals in the coming months. For example, if you earn a rental income from your investment property, you must declare this in your annual income tax return. However, this also means that you 16



MAY 7 2014

could be entitled to claim income tax deductions from a portion of the costs involved – for example, the interest paid on your home loan. Furthermore, GST doesn’t apply to residential rental income, which means you aren’t liable to pay any GST on the rent you charge and can’t claim GST on associated costs. These rules change if you aren’t renting out the whole home as an investment property. If you’re only renting out specific rooms for income, you’re only entitled to claim deductions based on the floor

area plans. This includes spaces solely for their occupation, as well as reasonable allowances for access to general living areas like the kitchen, lounge and bathroom. In line with this, income received from family members for board or lodging is seen as a domestic arrangement and thus not treated as income. So while you won’t be taxed on this, you also can’t claim income deductions on the figures either. There are a wide range of responsibilities to understand when considering investment loans and

the purchase of rental properties. It could be worth getting in contact with a financial expert to discuss the various lending options available to you. Teresa Harrison Phone 5422 9458 or 0410 648 098

And not least of all, the volunteers and hall custodians, thank you all again. Kevin Beasley Vice President Glasshouse Country RSL Sub-Branch


The Beerwah-Peachester RSL Women's Auxiliary hosted morning tea for over 200 primary school children after the Anzac Service on Friday and we would like to commend the staff, leaders, teachers and parents on their behaviour. They sat quietly and respectfully throughout the service and at morning tea they were polite and well mannered, without exception. We have a lot to be proud of in Beerwah. I would also like to thank those staff members of the RSL Club who generously donated their time, working on ANZAC Day to contribute to the memory of those who have lost their lives to allow us to have the freedom we have today as well as fostering the bonds of the current service personnel and the community. Thank you. Margaret Rouhan Sec. Beerwah Peachester RSL Women’s Auxiliary

Re: Cruise Ship Tourists

With Councillor Baberowski`s ‘Vision Splendid’ of attracting cruise ship tourists to the Hinterland, I must ask, would tourists really leave a multimillion dollar cruise liner to view a street in a rural community? I along with many other non-cruising locals (NCLs) humbly request that the good councillor addresses what we the aforementioned NCLs, see as important to our communities. Peachester, once awarded a Tidy Towns Title, along with the other wonderful Hinterland towns, all have areas that need attention. One example is the non / poorly serviced state of the walkways in Peachester, despite multiple requests spanning several years. Unstable walking surfaces, overhanging branches / vines, unrestrained savage dogs etc. Of late any complaints forwarded to council, (as the councillor is very difficult to contact personally) are met with a request that the complainant make a visit to council offices and fill out an official form there. It matters not that those without personal transport, spend almost an entire day using taxis and buses to meet the council’s demands.

I feel a good dose of basic council maintenance would put us in a far better position to open our arms and hearts to provide a hearty welcome to CST`s to our magic corner of this great country. The Poddy Dodger Peachester

Help needed to find us a home

My husband and I and our four children need to find a rental property soon or we won’t have anywhere to live. My husband has worked in Beerwah for the last three years and 12 months ago we moved our family to Beerwah so our children can attend Beerwah State School. As two of our children have disabilities, they require the assistance of the Special Education Unit at the school so we really want to be able to keep them there. We are prepared to pay up to $400.00 per week rent, and ideally we would love a four bedroom plus home, however after being unsuccessful on 15 separate rental applications, we now just need somewhere to live. I feel that we are being discriminated against – which I can only assume is because of complaints from neighbours regarding our children’s disabilities. I really don’t know where to turn, I have been to see ‘Public Housing’ and was told that if my husband was unemployed we would be a higher priority on their waiting list, but that we might have to do what many other families are doing and living in our car. Neither I or my husband has family living locally – so we don’t have anyone we can ask to help us out. I have letters of reference from local people who know us or have been neighbours. We really just need someone to give us a go. If you think you would be able to help please contact Glasshouse Country News on 5438 7445 and they can pass on our contact details. Jackie Beerwah

Local Music Scene All about Spring Burn

Four teenage boys from Beerwah High make up local Hinterland band, Spring Burn. Consisting of Dean Harrison on vocals, Ken Shibuya on guitar and backup vocals, Haydn Burnett playing drums and Locy Tester on bass, the boys have a heavy rock sound that produces an intense but energetic raw vibe. All currently students in Year 11, Dean and Hadyn have known each other since early childhood. Hadyn and Ken met at school in Year 8 and together they formed their first band. Since then, the boys have had a couple of different bands together before Locy joined the group in February 2013 and the band known as Spring Burn was established. Originally called the Defiants, soon after forming they decided to change their name and the moniker Spring Burn was decided upon. Named after the street that one of the band members live on, the name, “reminded them of home.” After sharing the stage with well known acts such as 28 Days, Evil Edie from Butterfingers, The Roshambos and Take Us To Vegas at the Glass House Mountains Festival, the boys have also achieved placement in numerous local battle of the bands and performed at local charity events. Participation in future events is in the pipeline and Spring Burn have gone from strength to strength. Recently they supported Take Us To Vegas at the Glass House Mountains community hall for a successful all ages gig. Although influenced by hard rock and heavy metal, such as Parkway Drive, Black Sabbath, Metallica and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, their set consists of mainly original material. The majority of songs are written by guitarist Ken who hails from a musical family and according to the band “has the most creative mind.” Balancing high school and part time work with practice, Spring Burn are consistently creating new material. Given their past accomplishments, the band is definitely one to keep an eye on in the future.

The Conductor Cult

Over the years I have attended a lot of live orchestral performances and to this day remain both fascinated and perplexed by the credit the conductor appears to be getting for the pieces they conduct. Do they deserve it? In some cases perhaps yes: they may have commissioned and / or programmed the work or they might be proposing a new reading of it (let’s assume it’s a well-known work), or they may have inspired the players to the point where they are giving their best possible performance. But in truth professional performers are always giving their best, so it is really just the little bit of magic that the conductor might find in the work – finessing the tempi here and there and rebalancing the orchestra. In fact in some works a conductor isn’t even required; either the players know the music well enough, or it simply doesn’t need someone out the front beating time. If you watch a conductor such as Herbert von Karajan on DVD you will see that some of the time (especially late in his career) he is not moving. It is as though he is directing the orchestra by sheer force of will. So who should we give credit to for that fantastic performance we have just heard? In truth it is the work first and foremost that we should applaud, followed by the performers then the conductor. That is not to denigrate conductors as artists - they are very fine musicians who by nature possess powerful personalities. Not that that necessarily wins them respect from performers. I heard a story first hand from a colleague who as a young artist played with the Berlin Philharmonic. At one rehearsal with a new conductor one of the old hands turned to him and said, “don’t follow the conductor, follow us, he will learn how we play this piece.” So when you next hear an orchestra live (and I do hope you will have that opportunity), and you applaud at the work’s conclusion, do thank the conductor for their sheer personal presence as much as the musical talent they obviously have, and give lots of applause for the players who really made that sound you have heard. But save, at least in your own mind, your biggest thank you for the composer, who somewhere sometime and somehow, with in most cases very little financial encouragement, actually made the work.

It’s nearly Show time

Believe it or not, people are already talking about the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show, scheduled for June 13, 14, 15 at the Nambour Showgrounds.

Maleny Players present, Let the Sunshine

David Williamson's stinging satirical contemporary comedy explores what happens when people holding widely different political views are thrown together. Toby, a maker of hard-hitting documentaries, flees Sydney with his wife, Ros, a successful book editor. He arrives at his old childhood haven only to find the area has been transformed into a playground for rich sea changers. They are to celebrate Toby's 60th birthday dining with Ros's old school acquaintance, Natasha, and Ron, her wealthy property developer husband. The scene is set for a night of hilarity and surprise. Performances will be held at the Playhouse, Maleny Showgrounds at 7.00pm on Friday and Saturday, May 16 and 17, 23 and 24 and at 2.30pm on Sunday, May 18 and 25. Bar and doors open 30 minutes before performances. Tickets $15.00 (no concessions - suitable for adults only) online or at Maleny Visitors and Information Centre. MAY 7 2014 |

Vocational Education and Training (VET) workshop held

Coming up…

The 77th Maleny Agricultural Show is fast approaching. I will be at the event on Friday, May 30 and Saturday, May 31. If you see me or my staff feel free to come up, have a chat and let us know what is important to you and your community.


On ANZAC Day I attended a number of remembrance services around the coast, including the Landsborough and Maleny mid-morning services. It was great to see so many people come out and take the opportunity to express thanks and gratitude to the men and women of our defence forces, both past and present. While ANZAC Day is the national day of remembrance, I encourage you all to say a quiet thank you throughout the year to those who have made our peace possible and to their families who carry the burden of their courage and sacrifice. Lest we forget.

Over $200,000 in local funding

On Wednesday, April 30, I hosted Vocational Education and Training (VET) Reform Workshop in Caloundra to facilitate discussions on the VET sector and provide the opportunity for training organisations to give feedback directly to the Government. The workshop was attended by a wide variety of organisations from across the Sunshine Coast including high schools, training providers and local employers. The aim of the workshop was to bring training providers and industry together to discuss ways to improve the delivery of skills and training, and to make sure the VET sector is providing the job-ready skills that businesses need. The workshop was a success and I believe that hosting this workshop was an important step to ensuring that our region’s school leavers and those seeking up skilling have the best chance of receiving quality training that leads to a job. For more information on VET reform or to provide feedback visit or contact my office on 5444 4888.

Mooloolah Rider Recreation Park –

Have Your Say - How do you feel about illegal riding in our National Parks? What about growing our tourism industry on the Coast? Well the proposed Mooloolah Recreational Rider Park has been designed to address those issues and many more with draft provisions released and community consultation now open.

Community consultation open for Sunshine Coast lakes

Do you think it is important to have a say in what recreational uses should and shouldn’t be allowed on two of our lakes here on the Sunshine Coast? Then come along to a community information session or jump online to share your thoughts on the future use of Lake Borumba and Lake Macdonald. I think it’s very important people share their thoughts on how recreational uses of these lakes could encourage greater access and tourism opportunities. As part of the most extensive review of leisure opportunities on and around South East Queensland dams and catchments ever undertaken, the review discussion papers of these two lakes have recently been released. You can view them at or attend an information session on May 3 at Imbil and Cooroy.

Recipe for growth!

Thanks to the generous donations from Bunnings Caloundra, the hard work of some of the Morris House volunteers, a bit of rain and sunshine, the Morris House’s garden’s gone green! In early February, Bunnings Caloundra donated an assortment of gardening tools, fertiliser and plants to help restore Morris House’s garden back to working order. Within a few short months the Morris house volunteers are quite proud of their herb garden and their lovely vegetables. The garden is often used by the cooking group who meet every Thursday.

Plant of the month

Wallum bottlebrush (Melaleuca pachyphyllus)

This lovely plant was previously known as Callistemon pachyphyllus and commonly as Wallum bottlebrush. The bottlebrushes are among the most beautiful of native flowering plants and can be found in a wide range of colours. Hybrids of the more common colours do occur naturally but many have also been produced in specialist plant nurseries. Melaleuca pachyphyllus occurs in moist, coastal wallum soils from the central coast of New South Wales to southern Queensland. Two forms occur, though the red flowering form is more common than the green. The natural habitat of this plant is damp and sandy, even wet, but it can be grown successfully in most soils. Height rarely exceeds two metres and plant can be pruned to improve the shape. The bottlebrush flowers appear in spring and autumn but can be seen throughout the year. Melaleucas are an important food source for birds, butterflies and native bees. Unfortunately due to land clearing many are disappearing from their natural habitat as coastal wallum gives way to canal housing estates.

Approaching winter

As I write this week’s column, we are experiencing our first cold snap for the year. As usual, I have been preparing for the slightest excuse to relish the cool season delights: lighting the fire to warm the cool nights and cooking up hearty foods that fill the air with homely aromas. One of my all time favourite cool weather foods has to be my pumpkin, sweet potato and ginger soup with buttered crusty bread. Luckily, this year I have more than an abundance of produce for this with 100’s of pumpkins, expanses of sweet potato and an acre of ginger. So this column, I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite recipes and some key facts about storing pumpkins to see you through to next year’s season.

Pumpkin, Sweet Potato and Ginger Soup Ingredients 1 onion 2 teaspoons of freshly crushed garlic ¼ cup of finely grated fresh ginger 500g sweet potato cut into small pieces 500g pumpkin cut into small pieces 3 cups of chicken stock 150ml evaporated milk 1. Sautee onion, garlic and ginger in a little water. 2. Add sweet potato, pumpkin and chicken stock. 3. Bring to boil and simmer until veggies are tender. 4. Cool slightly and puree with blender until smooth. 5. Add condensed milk, stir and reheat. Enjoy with buttered crusty bread!

Picking and storing pumpkins

Many people ask me how I know when the pumpkins are ripe for the picking. I have heard of people say tapping it and it sounds hollow, but I have found that this is very subjective and therefore unreliable. The most dependable way I have found is by waiting for the small curly tendril at the junction of the pumpkin stalk and vine to begin to die, before picking. Once you get to the picking stage and you would like to be able to store your pumpkins, ensure you try to cut close to the vine, leaving the longest possible stem attached to your pumpkin. If you cut a short stem, it can often rot easily and the rot can enter your pumpkin. I also leave my pumpkins in the sun to dry out for a couple of days to harden the skin and dry the stalk, which helps to reduce attacks during storage. Choose a cool airy place to store your pumpkins and keep them stacked on their side. If left flat, often moisture accumulates around the stem and once again, rot can set in. Finally, check your pumpkins for soft spots every time you get a new one out, and use these ones first. However, if you happen to miss checking them, the rotten pumpkin stench and seeping liquid mass will certainly alert you to the problem. Hope everyone gets to embrace the delights of the cooler weather, from the crispy cool mornings and refreshing sunny days to the crystal clear night sky and warm log fires. Until next time in Get Up and Grow…

National Day of Thanksgiving Later this month, on May 31, many churches and organisations across our country will celebrate a National Day of Thanksgiving; so to put it in your mind and on your calendars I’ve mentioned it here this week. It is an opportunity for us as a community to say Thank you to those who serve our community tirelessly all year long. Yes! Some are paid for the jobs they do, but many do these jobs voluntarily. So think about whom you can say a big Thank you to! It may be a teacher or a student. You, like me, may want to thank our local police officers; the fire brigade; the SES folk who are there when we need them. Our ambulance officers who risk life and limb to offer that first response care in a time of need. This year two of the primary focus areas are ‘Transport and Travel’ and our ‘Neighbours’. So

Students from Glasshouse Country Christian College poured onto the Beerwah Sports Grounds not once but three times on Tuesday, April 29 for the Annual GCCC Cross Country. The students competed for individual placings but were also running for their house with the first four finishers of each house counting towards the teams’ race for houses. The Middle School students began the running three or four kilometres around the Beerwah Sports Grounds, nearby stream and parklands. Some races were closely fought and others were led by the winner right from the gun. Brooke Hughes, Natasha Hoeksema and Jack Fissenden all won by at least a minute but Jaylah Daunt and Chloe Dunford and Bakani Kombani and Patrick McKenzie fought close battles throughout their races. The Senior School followed with the Year 12 students savouring their final cross country race ever for many of them. Jacqueline Roach showed that training pays off by winning the 15 years girls’ race in the fastest 4km time for the girls. Cameron Shervey and Bailey Townsend battled it out in the 15 year boys’ race with Cameron winning by just six seconds with the fastest boys 4km time of the day. Finally, the Primary students arrived with the nine-year-olds quite nervous about running their first serious cross country race. After running many laps of the oval during the recent Lap-athon Challenge these students were ready to race. This was proven when the 11-year-old boys took to the course. It was a very tactical race with Sam Townson, Jacob Broderick and Declan Martin battling it out throughout the race. These boys ran the fastest 3km times of the day, beating all the 12 and 13 year old times. Aaron van Palen and Bryce Sambrook had the closest Primary race with only eight seconds separating them. Amy Trevan and Cassidy Ferris both led from start to finish in their races. When the final competition points were tallied from all the day’s competitions the unbelievable had happened. Two houses were exactly tied on points. However, after all the war cry and cheering points were added to the competition points, Ararat emerged as the Cross Country Champions on 395 points followed by Zion on 349 points and Sinai on 349 points.

Blood, Sweat & Cheers Your guide to sport in Glasshouse Country

Contributed by Deb Ives The Ngungun Triathlon Club held an Aquathlon on Sunday, April 27 at the Beerwah and District Swimming Pool, for kid's aged five and above. And for the first time, the club opened up the race to all ages and first timers, with huge success. There were nine first timers in attendance ranging in age from 30 to 50 plus years, taking part in the 2k run, 240m swim, and 1k. The race is not competitive and all participants were thrilled to receive a club medal and certificate. Alongside the nine adults, there were 30 kids ranging from five years to 13 years, each running and swimming a distance to suit their ability. The club has run kid's triathlons throughout the summer months, and is proud to be hosting a Duathlon series over the winter months at Skippy Park. A Duathlon is a run, cycle ride and run event. The races are well organised, and provide a safe environment for kid's to participate and have fun. All of the club events are non-competitive, and are testament to the clubs philosophy of providing a friendly, family orientated club for all ages and abilities. The first Duathlon will take place a Skippy Park on May 25, and again will have an open category. Keep up to date with the Club's happenings on NgungunTriathlonClub

Happy first-timers Vicky, Carrie, Debbie, Deanne, Amanda, Kaye, Renee, Tracey and Janice

Auskick At Landsborough

Contributed by Craig Bales Glasshouse Hinterland's Club Auskick will be commencing this Thursday, May 8 from 4.00pm until 5.00pm at our grounds at Tunnel Ridge Road, Landsborough. Club Auskick is for the age groups of five and six-years-old and those who are older, but not wanting to play club football. Auskick is for both boys and girls and is run over a 10 - 12 week period. NAB AFL Auskick is the Australian Football League’s key introductory program for primary school aged children and their families. Queensland Auskick Co-ordinator Stuart Seager said that Auskick is all about teaching boys and girls the skills of AFL in a friendly, safe environment. “The rules are modified to give children a really gentle introduction to AFL,” said Stuart. “Parents are encouraged to join in all the activities and the kids' faces just light up when they see mum or dad having a kick or taking a mark. If you require further information please contact Craig on 0414 225 329 or simply rock up on Thursday, May 8!

Glasshouse Country Bowls Club

Contributed by Trevor Bertram Last Monday’s monthly ‘Open Two Bowl Triples’ was called off due to the weather forecast. This month’s event is on May 26, commencing at 9.00am. Visiting and home teams are welcome to nominate. In the social games on Ladies’ Day last Wednesday, Grahame Young and Steve Palmer def Debbie Dale and Rae Farrell in the pairs, and in the triples, Ron Wilson, Margaret Porter and Maurie Dawes def Viv James, Margaret Beasley and Jenny Hobson; and Brian Larkin, Warren Blackbourne and Di Hunt def Julie Palmer, John McSwain and Joy Reason. Thursday morning’s ‘Open Pairs’ was won by Kevin Beasley and Kerry Capern with 2 wins + 8 and the runners-up, being the ‘Winners of the Losers’ with a +17 in Game 2, were Graham Nicholson and Ron Rix. The afternoon game was won by Peter Astbury and Rodney Sharpe with 2 wins + 19 and the runners-up, being the

Beerwah Ladies Golf Club

Contributed by Jenny Kelly What a treat the weather has been lately. The nip in the air didn’t deter 63 ladies from coming out to compete for our May Monthly Medal. As always, the medal is generously sponsored by club professional John Mellish. John presented the winner of Division 1, Lynne Wroe with her medal after she came in with a 75 Nett. Lynne, a new member of our club, was closely followed by Andrea Campbell on 76 Nett. Winner of the Gross was Lea Garner who came in with 89 off the stick. Division 2 winner was Noelene Annakin with a great score of 72 Nett. Brenda Briese was runner up with a 74 Nett. A visitor from Nambour Golf Club, Jasmin Parkes, took out the Gross after she shot 98 off the stick. Pat Chapman who the Medal in Division 3 with a 78 Nett, followed by Marg Hunkin on 80 Nett. Winner of the Gross with 112 off the stick was Anne Stockwell. Nearest to the Pins went to Sue Williamson on 2, Cathy Stone on 5 and Andrea Campbell on the 16th Div. One on the 18 was won by Teresa Keast, while Marie Norton took out the NTP in Div 2. Joan Fletcher had her radar tuned in to win the putting with 27 Putts. The ball rundown went to 80 Nett. It seems winter has finally arrived so what better way to keep fit through the cooler months than to hit the fairways for some relaxing exercise. Until then stay warm and stay safe.

Landsborough Tennis Club

Contributed by Jill Kirchheiner Friday Night Tennis – The second half of the season has started and thankfully the rain held off for the first match last Friday night. Hope that all the players are learning how to score and also to ball-boy for their matches, particularly in the older divisions, and not relying on parents or other adults to score for them. Please make sure you turn up for your match before the start time, as the time given is when you start playing on court. If you know that you are unable to play, please also make sure that you organise a fill-in player from the fill-in list and if that fails ring Katya. Make sure that the fill-in player knows who they are playing, the time they are playing and the date this is going to happen. The season fees are due now and need to be paid to Dawn at Landsborough. There are still quite a few players who have not paid. For the Glass House players who are not able to get to Landsborough to pay, please leave in a sealed envelope with your name on it in the players box. You also need to fill in the form that is supplied in the box with your details along with your payment, and this is for all team players. Below are the scores up to May 2 Div 1 – Murray-166, Nadal-144, Federer-122, Ferrer-117, Djokovich-94, Tsonga-93 Div 2 – Sharapovas-151, Li Na-133, Azarenka-127, Williams-112 Div 3 – Wilson-142, Babolat-123, Head-98, Prince-88 (scores for 21.3 still to come) Peewee 1 – Shreks-114, Ice Age’s-110, Madagascar’s-91, Toy Story’s-68 Peewee 2 – Nintendo-107, Xbox-96, Playstation-91, DS-86 Continuous ‘A’ – Meat Pies-111, Sausage Rolls-104, Dagwood Dogs-99, Hot Dogs-92, Chiko Rolls-76, Hot Chips-72 Continuous ‘B’ – Jade-74, Addison-63, Robert-47, Lara-44 Remember if you would like to hire the courts, particularly over the holiday break, just call into the local IGA.

Into the care of Angels 10 May 2012

Another year has passed Mum and it's been two long years since you said farewell. We feel you walking with us each day and hear your words of wisdom in our ear as we make our way ... We look skywards to talk to you and hold onto those joyful times ever so close ... not wanting to let them go ... Sometimes we laugh at past times, sometimes we cry over past times but most of all we remember our time with you and the love and guidance you shared with us all. You are so sadly missed and never forgotten Mum ...

Let’s talk turkey A football team were on the field during practice, when to their surprise, a big turkey suddenly walked up to the coach and demanded a try out. “Are you crazy,” hollered the coach, “we don’t give try outs to turkeys.” Before he knew it, the turkey started dashing towards the football and made a fantastic catch.

“That was amazing,” exclaimed the coach. “I have never seen anything like that! How much do you want for a year?” “Don’t worry about money,” said the turkey, “let me just ask you something. Does the season go past thanksgiving?!” Submitted by Dana, Glass House

TAURUS April 21 – May 21 The planet Mercury transits the sign of Gemini between May 7 and 29. This brings your full mental focus and flexibility to your financial affairs. The interesting news is that your ruler, Venus, is drawing time to look through art, music, nature, or soulful reflection. It’s a very good week if you can cuddle somebody close. GEMINI May 22 – June 21 Because your ruling planet, Mercury, is in the sign of Taurus at the beginning of the week, it is necessary to finish up old business. After mid week that planet drops into Gemini and you will be as busy as a bee catching up with friends and kinfolk. Start a new project, visit a bookshop or library, pursue your dreams. CANCER June 22 – July 22 Avoid worry, regret, self-blame and negative obsessions. Mid May is happily pointing the way to overcoming emotional issues with a triumphant light at the end of the tunnel. A good week in making a start to professional alliances. Others like your enthusiasm. Influential people notice your talents. Family reunion. LEO July 23 – August 22 The recent eclipse had a Taurus Scorpio effect which challenged your inner and outer life. From May 7 there are signs that will set you up for protection, prestige and success. Take up social invitations and talks with friends. Someone brings an aura of mystery, see where it will take you over a luncheon.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22 Your tendency to always try to be helpful can put you at a disadvantage this week, as you may encounter people who only know how to take. Protect yourself and your assets. Always just relax and be yourself, and all your best qualities will come to the fore. Your personal appeal is at its peak, so you can show off. LIBRA September 23 – October 22 With Mercury moving through the sign of Gemini, it can make planning an adventure most enjoyable. The planet Venus, which happens to be your ruler, is travelling through the assertive sign of Aries. This means romance burns passionately and arouses desires. But if compatibility is not likely, then buy chocolates. SCORPIO October 23 – November 22 The sun sign in Taurus is opposite your Scorpio sign. Other planets give your word conviction and command about a cause or belief. Others rally around with comfort and support, bringing influential allies with them. Things you have longed for, and worked for, for years, may fall into place for you now. New optimism. SAGITTARIUS November 23 – December 22 This week is the start of good self promotion moves. The planet Venus moves through spicy Aries and opens the door to a month of play, pleasure and romance. It’s good for your children too, who will be charming and lots of fun. Break out an old hobby, or start a new one. There is a swift swirl of activity now.

CAPRICORN December 23 – January 19 Mercury is moving through the sign of Taurus together with the Sun, but only for the first week of May. This brings your attention to matters of the heart. You may find yourself still struggling with communication issues up until mid month. There is an emotional trigger with the Scorpio full Moon coming up. AQUARIUS January 20 – February 19 The advantages of a secure home life, and the ways that could benefit your routines for the future, happen this week. You will also be looking for some exciting adventures outside of old schedules. Your involvements with parents, elders, colleagues, estate matters or your community are dramatic. PISCES February 20 – March 20 Present influences call for a bit of extra discipline in order to complete pending tasks. Be careful not to let yourself be easily swayed. Involvements with other people show definite improvement over previous weeks. You may let yourself be guided by the actions or ideas of other people. Much positive action. ARIES March 21 – April 20 This is the week to try and sleep a little later to avoid morning blues or grumpiness. Mercury enters Gemini and after a good shower you will be on the go mentally, and physically, to look like the local Ambassador for your community. With the Moon moving into finicky Virgo, this will bring allergies. Vitamin C beneficial.
