November 2016

“Reality is merely an illusion… S

O SAYS ALBERT Einstein, "albeit a very persistent one."

I feel like we've had as many appointments and events this month as the Bachelorette has had kisses. Between the school events (a P&C fundraiser, brekky club, tri, fun run and running club), community events, keeping up with pilates and gym for me, swim squad for the kids, then the Nippers Carnival, newspaper awards night... and that's only the things I could fit in! Heatley was away working in New Zealand for a week, and kindly brought some presents home… Unfortunately, one of them was the cold he picked on the plane. The poor boy's throat was hoarse from all the spruiking he did of our beautiful region - it is hard to believe he had around 150 face-to-face meetings with the tourist industry movers and shakers in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. The feedback was extremely positive. In this edition we seem to be celebrating a lot of anniversaries – 25 years for Maleny Film Society, 30 years for a gallery, and Maleny Commerce 1986 was a productive year! For our first story, it would have been Thomas Moodie's 100th birthday, then a whopping 110 years for Dulong School of Arts. But I have some disturbing news yes, I must include it.

It's less than eight weeks 'til Christmas. That's seven.

CTOBER 31 MARKED the 100th birthday of Thomas Boyd Moodie (31 October 1916 – 14 February 2012). In celebration of his life, wife Betty a resident of Erowal, Maleny donated Tom’s war medals to the Queensland Air Museum, Caloundra. Tom Moodie’s life was one filled with adventure, intrigue and heroism. His escapades are the kind that create movies. In fact, research indicates that this is indeed the case as in the movie Heroes of Telemark.

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Tom joined the RAF in 1933. Six years later, at the end of his term of enlistment, he returned to Scotland and his profession as a civil engineer. The outbreak of World War II saw Tom re-enlisting in the RAF where he was posted to a unit in Burnaston, Derbyshire. It was there he learnt to fly various aircraft, then at Prestwick, qualified as a navigator and bombardier. I met with Tom’s long-time friends Maleny locals, Des Aston and Lloyd Larney, who shared their stories. One of particular interest was Tom’s time with the Pathfinder Force during World War II. Des explains, “One of Tom’s missions was marking for a raid on the heavy water facility at the Norsk Hydroelectric Plant in Telemark, southern Norway. Flying the Mosquito, as a high-speed reconnaissance aircraft, they marked targets with flares. Red paint stained the snow so that the others could see where to bomb.

“The raid was from the air but if I remember rightly, Tom and a few other guys physically went back into that water facility and blew up what was left of it and got captured again.” To which Lloyd adds, “At some stage during that raid Tom’s aircraft crashed. He was captured and ended up in a German hospital. It was winter and the snow came up above the windows. “About four Norwegian army blokes came on a rescue mission, so Tom slid out of the window. That’s when he went to Norway and joined the resistance.” A sequence of sabotage missions between 1940 and 1944 ensured the destruction of the heavy water (deuterium oxide) facility. This effectively stopped Germany’s efforts to develop nuclear weapons. While memories and memorabilia lay claim to Thomas Moodie’s role in these historic events, being a recipient of ‘The War Cross’ speaks for itself. This medal carries the highest rank of all Norwegian decorations. Des Aston, who is the custodian of Tom’s medals showed me the framed honours. Sealed in the back of the frame is a letter dated 7 July 1942 from the Royal High School, Edinburgh, Tom’s former school. It reads in part:

“Tom had a bottle of bourbon for the Yankee guy and he had a bottle of scotch for Tom. Quite a feat as there were no computers back then…it was all done by calculations.” Tom and Betty moved to Maleny in 1979. It was then that Lloyd Larney first met the couple. Des’s association began ten years earlier in Buderim. “Tom was a down-to-earth fellow, easy to talk to. He was in for anything. I helped him out on several building projects and in his eulogy referred to him as ‘Tom the builder’. “He helped out with the buildings at the Maleny showgrounds, the drain down the back in Willow Lane and the bridge across the creek at the showgrounds. He designed and organised the concreting of it,” said Lloyd. Des added, “He was retired, all this was voluntary. He was mates with the engineer at the council so they worked together.” There seems to be no end to the stories that create Tom Moodie’s life: a posting to the north-west frontier India in 1935 and later the seaport of Mersa Matruth, Egypt. After the war, he sourced Caribou transport planes for the RAAF and for reasons that are unbeknown to Des and Lloyd, was awarded a medal from the Canadian Mounted Police. Another story springs to mind as Des recalls, “After the war, Tom designed quite a few air strips in Persia and other Arab countries. Before the Vietnam war broke out, the US Congress sub-contracted him to identify where some those air strips were in Indo-China. “He and Betty would arrive by private plane with about six body guards and three or four American big-wigs, to identify some of these air strips.” It seems that the adventures of Tom Moodie will certainly live on through the storytellers. However, the presentation of his medals to the Queensland Air Museum where he was a founding member and held office as president, will preserve his memory. It will serve as a reminder of Thomas Boyd Moodie, the war hero, Tom the builder and a man who was friend to many.

Dear Moodie, Congratulations on your R. Norwegian Cross… I am sorry to hear about your accident… Tom Moodie’s adventures eventually led him to Australia where, as a civil engineer, he worked on the Snowy Mountains scheme, a hydroelectricity and irrigation complex constructed between 1949 and 1974. Lloyd continues the story. “It was there he met Betty, she was the head on-site secretary. They were married in the early 60s. “Tom told me how they tunnelled through the mountain. Him on one side and an American engineer on the other. So, when they met in the middle, they reckoned they were half an inch out.

Adrian Butler:

Tireless Campaigner

Everyone understands they should install a smoke alarm, but ask the question, “do you know there are two different types of smoke alarms?” and most will answer “yes, battery and hard-wired”. It is this ignorance that Adrian Butler has been campaigning against for 16 years, as writer Dale Jacobsen found out.

by Dale Jacobsen


HERE ARE TWO different types of smoke alarms: ionisation and photoelectric alarms,” Adrian explains. “They are for two very different purposes. The ionisation model, that constantly goes off when you are cooking, detects sub-micron particles, not visible smoke. “But most fatal house fires begin as a slow smouldering fire that generates toxic smoke, not flames. People assume that, because these alarms are so sensitive to cooking, they will protect them in the event of a fire, but they often don’t.

Adrian Butler points to the radiation symbol on your alarm. If it has one, it should be replaced

“Photoelectric alarms, on the other hand, detect visible smoke. These are the only alarms the fire brigades now recommend.” Adrian knows his stuff. Originally a full-time professional firefighter from New Zealand, he began selling smoke alarms in 1997. At that time, he didn’t question the commonly held claim that any smoke alarm was a good smoke detector. It was the cheaper ionisation option and people felt safe with them. Then customers found their alarms failed when they were most needed. Adrian began investigating. “The penny dropped when I read reports dating back to the 70s from US fire protection engineer, Richard Patton. It was suddenly so obvious.” According to Patton, a campaigner since the mid-70s, there is a worldwide cover-up purely for economic purposes. As Adrian explains: “Ionisation alarms are cheap to produce, around $1, and they sell for around $10. Much cheaper than a photoelectric alarm.

Adrian Butler with Sir Geoffrey Cresser (advisor to the foundation) on 31 August 2016 at 11:30pm, outside Parliament House just after Queensland photoelectric legislation enacted

“Millions have been sold around the world. Do the maths. The manufacturers fear litigation if the real situation is known.” In 2000, Adrian saw the awardwinning Canadian documentary Silent Alarms, but it was soon silenced by the manufacturers and has not been screened since. “It showed clearly that, despite ionisation alarms being widely installed in homes, deaths—particularly child deaths—have not decreased. We were shocked by this. “It is a story that needs to be told, so we decided to make our own documentary, Stop the Children Burning. It can’t be silenced.” Adrian immediately ceased selling alarms and formed the non-trading not-for-profit organisation, World Fire Safety Foundation, with Karl Westwell. They began a tireless campaign that, to date, has run for 16 years, conducting their own tests which are well documented on the Foundation’s website. Their aim is to not only educate the public, but have legislation changed to ensure the correct smoke alarms are installed in every home. But what to many people seems like a no-brainer has been met with tremendous opposition from authorities. “People don’t like change,” explains Adrian.“They have been told that the cheaper option is safe, so they go along with that. People also don’t like to admit they’re wrong.” In 2006, Adrian and Karl almost closed down the campaign.“We had lost our homes, and were totally disillusioned.” But they were reawakened when they received an email

Coming Soon

SASSY BEANS & BITES small lunch selections from Russell Ash, a US fireman, reporting that a fire in Vermont took the lives of three girls in a house that was fully equipped with alarms. None sounded. Adrian was brought to America as an expert witness at the coronial inquest. Adrian has long been a campaigner. He is driven, very driven, by a sense of public awareness and social conscience. This is his third campaign. His first began when, in his early twenties, he took on the insurance industry for what he saw was bad advice to clients. Like the smoke alarm business, he was selling a product he discovered was deceptive. His second campaign, again brought about by personal circumstances, was the banking industry’s mortgage branch. David against the Goliaths. He is a man who punches above his weight. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that, as a teenager, he represented New Zealand in international weightlifting. After battling against the status quo for so long, there is hope. On September 1 this year, legislation was passed in Queensland that, as from January 1, 2017, all new houses must have a photoelectric alarm installed in every bedroom of every home. “Unfortunately, it won’t apply to all rental properties until 2021, and in every home until 2027,” laments Adrian. “Think of the number of lives that will be lost during that time!” When Adrian began the fight, he thought it would all be over in two years; people would see they were being conned. I asked him how long he would be able to keep up the good fight as he grows older and the strain of a lifetime of struggle takes its toll. “As long as it takes”, he replied.

Y HUSBAND AND I started the gallery in May 1986. The building, built in the late 1920s, was originally a farmer’s co-op. When we purchased it, it was a pottery. “Six years or so after my youngest was born, I was looking for something to do and suggested we buy this property. The building was a shop front with a house at the back. “We moved from our farm at Moy Pocket and went into business. It was a big leap of faith but I just felt it would be a success. “Back then, Kenilworth was just a small dot on the map. When we opened, everyone said it wouldn’t work but it has grown to be incredibly successful.” Kaye Cathro’s background was primarily in advertising and up until purchasing the historic building it had never occurred to her to open a gallery.

“We began as an art and craft shop with just a few paintings on the walls. When I think back, I am amazed at the high quality of work we sourced in those early days. Our selections included the work of noted porcelain potter Gwyn Hanssen Pigott. “One of our first finds was artist Greg Postle who has been recognised as Australia’s greatest wildlife painter. We saw his work in the local art show and asked if he’d like to exhibit with us. “I was Greg’s sole representative for 22 years. We had sell out exhibitions every time.” The original gallery was housed in one room. Kaye recalls its rustic nature before renovations expanded the space. “It was very rough, not lined. The second gallery room was originally the kiln room from the shop’s pottery days. Then later, a third gallery room was added.” Kaye speaks of the value of living in Kenilworth in particular, how the community rallied to her aid on 21 June 2007 when fire broke out. “It was during the day when I saw flames pouring out from the house. By the time the local voluntary fire brigade arrived the building was well alight. “We were most worried about the gallery because I had an exhibition planned. It was to open in two weeks and all the exhibition paintings were in the gallery. This was a positive, as I would normally have stored the artworks in the house.

Greg Postle in his Peregian studio – 1987

“I am planning to continue being involved with art in some way. It will be a matter of watch this space. My clients and artists are like family and I wish to maintain that connection. “A few years ago I was looking through some old photographs from the early days at the gallery and realised the quality of artists that I’ve had here over the years. Artists that have gone on to be incredibly well known, nationally and internationally.” Like a well-chosen pebble cast on the waters of Australian art, Kaye Cathro’s ‘Lasting Impressions’ vision has had a ripple effect on art and artists alike – a lasting legacy. www.lastingimpressionsgallery.net

“People came from everywhere, they were wonderful. Everything had to be moved out because the old timber buildings were only about a metre apart and the fire was raging. Everyone just grabbed paintings and we took them across the road to the real estate agents. “Fortunately, the fire brigade stopped the blaze reaching the gallery building. Most of the photographs were in the shed which was metal, and they survived. “That night I kept coming back to make sure that the fire was out. We opened for business the next day. Then, we got all the paintings back in and held the exhibition two weeks later.” Even though Kaye’s precious gallery and its irreplaceable contents had been saved, she was left with only the clothes she wore. Again, the community came to her aid with the necessary day-to-day items and accommodation. “A couple of weeks later I found a rental where I lived for 18 months while I designed a new house with the help of an architect friend. When the house was ready to be constructed, I moved into the shed. I became an ownerbuilder while still carrying out five successful shows in that year.” I admired Kay’s resilient attitude as she shared, “I couldn’t help thinking how lucky I was. No one was hurt and my gallery still existed. And then, I ended up with a beautiful new house. It was all positive.” Kaye Cathro’s focus is still very much on gallery business and the current exhibition Horizon featuring Gympie based artist Ken Gailer. She adds that the building’s new owners would be happy to see it resume as a gallery. Kaye smiled knowingly when I mentioned that the word retirement didn’t seem to figure in her future.

The Maleny Film Society

25 years on Our HT writers love hearing how ideas are born; so Dale Jacobsen enjoyed meeting with the women behind the Maleny Film Society; finding out how it all began and who came on board along the way.

Above: In the early days, before comfortable chairs and state-of-the-art screens Below: Kids settle in for a night of films

by Dale Jacobsen


WENTY-SIX YEARS AGO, two friends were chatting over a coffee in the lounge room of Maleny Lodge. Jill Morris, with a background of production and screenwriting for the ABC, lamented the fact that she didn’t have easy access to quality film viewing. Lorraine Duffy, at the time owner of Maleny Lodge, suggested they might be able to show them in the lounge room. They continued their daydream over their cuppa, unaware that a similar dream filled the mind of Joan Rodger. The Maleny Film Society kicked off in 1991. Twenty-five years later, the two friends were to play an integral part of the new society—Jill as a committee member and filmmaker and Lorraine as the current president. “To test the water,” explained Jill, “they showed films for three months as part of the Maleny Arts Council who had a ready audience. If it worked, then Joan would consider screening on a permanent basis. “The group was pretty sure it would succeed, as the arts were burgeoning in Maleny, with art shows taking off, and the opening of places like the Upfront Club and Peace of Green Gallery.”

Current secretary, Jess Begun, explained that, right from the start, they were keen to show contemporary 35mm films, not 16mm films from the archives. “We wanted to show films that you wouldn’t see in the large cinemas; to focus on arthouse films. But, we didn’t have a 35mm projector. We had to rely on Kevin Baglow who travelled from Yeppoon for each screening.” In those early days, patrons would arrive early to share a meal catered by the committee, select a cushion from a huge canvas bag (children would snuggle down on beanbags), waiting to see the film that arrived earlier that afternoon in Landsborough by McCafferty’s coach. Things didn’t always go according to plan, however. One night (I was there), a full house had turned up for a screening of The Full Monty. The coach arrived without the film canisters. Disgruntled murmurs filled the hall, but the committee came up with a solution: making frantic phone calls, they found a copy at a Caboolture theatre that wasn’t being used that night. Someone jumped into their car and headed off down the highway while we watched a comedy. The film ended and we lined up for a cup of coffee just as the hero ran in the front door waving the film canisters. We all cheered. That is the spirit that is so warming with the Maleny Film Society. Jess says there have always been big humps to climb

over, particularly keeping up with new technology. “We were relieved when Ross Goulter, a professional projectionist from Sydney, moved to Maleny. He was walking past the community centre one day when Rotary were showing a film. It was all jerky and the sound was appalling. He couldn’t help himself. He walked in and said: ‘Can I have a look?’ Just then, Joan walked in and asked: ‘Does anyone know about the fellow who’s just moved to the area and knows about operating projectors?’ Wow. What timing.” MFS took out a loan to purchase their own projector and Ross took over, concocting a pickup for continuous screening, and training others in the art of using a projector. Then came another hump: converting to D-format. Now in the digital age, the committee no longer has to drive to Landsborough to collect the film. It all comes “down the line”. The society has branched out over the years, and a lot of the credit must go to Susanne Haydon’s innovative ideas. “She thought Maleny should have the ability to make its own local films,” said Jill. They applied for a grant to bring Sydney screenwriter, Scott Roberts, to Maleny to run a course on filmmaking; then Jill, Jess and another local writer attended the Sydney-based course Young at Heart Film Festival. With a Gambling Fund grant, they started the Maleny Film Commission in 2007 and purchased their own equipment. This morphed into the Maleny Film Cooperative (a more inclusive concept) where individual members make their own films. Jess Begun has created a very special film to screen at the 25th anniversary celebrations.

“I’ve been right back through the archives and the end result is a 16-minute film, Remembering When: 25 years of the Maleny Film Society,” said Jess, who has also prepared a display of memorabilia and history for the celebration and the Maleny Library. The Maleny Community Centre will be abuzz from 2pm on Sunday, November 13. As a nice touch, the main feature will be the Swedish film, My Life as a Dog—an encore screening of the first film shown by the society. There will be finger food by Spaghetti Junction, entertainment by the Maleny Players, and an amazing cake (featuring films screened) by local cake maker “cakesbyzoe”. In the true spirit of MFS, this will be a free event.

Dulong resident Cormac McDonald is

Brisbane Performing Arts Challenge Ballet Scholarships

dancing with destiny There are inspiring people of all ages, and HT writer Victoria McGuin recently met with 14-year-old Dulong resident Cormac McDonald, who definitely fits this description. After successfully throwing himself into music and gymnastics for five years, he realised that all he really wanted to do was dance. other kids in the class had been doing for five years! But everyone was really accepting. “I had a trial first, where I was told about the five feet positions, and then straight into a class by Victoria McGuin where I was learning the upcoming concert dance. I was thrown in the deep end, but having to learn it yourself and having to adapt quickly is a good way HEN I FIRST MET CORMAC he was nine years to learn something.â€? old, and busy with playing the flute and I ask how he felt after that first class. “I felt piano, singing, gymnastics and various overwhelmed, vibrant, excited.

through. They are long days and it’s hard work, but I love it.” The dedication is paying off - in 2015 he performed in Queensland Ballet’s La Sylphide at QPAC. That same year, he travelled to China with his older brother Tom, to play flute with Chinese music students as a member of a music exchange program. The downside to all this is that family and friendships often take second place. “I barely see my younger sister and brother, Tilly and Edan, but you get used to it and try to catch up when you can.” Cormac’s schedule sees him dancing six days a week. “I travel to Buderim four days a week, and Brisbane twice - all day Sunday.” Needless to say there is a lot of driving, and Cormac envisages living in Brisbane when he’s older to make things

“I’d literally be nowhere without Mum and Dad’s support,” he acknowledges. “They supply so much and do so much: financially, emotionally and logistically. And my friends and family have given me loads of support too. “There are times when I work so hard, it’s a career of perfection and trying to beat yourself. You need a good teacher, like Anne Fraser, someone constant to tell you you’re improving when you have doubts. Doubts don’t get you anywhere.” Cormac, I note, is a wise soul in a young body. He also strongly believes in the importance of finishing school. “I could trip out of the car one day and break my femur. No more dance. You need a good education as a back-up in your life, so you can always do something else.” For now, though, ballet is clearly in Cormac’s future with a busy year ahead. In addition to all his training he will be dancing in Anne Fraser’s end of year concert The Water Nymph. “I’m the lead – I’m the only guy!” he laughs. Next comes performances in BTQ’s Cinderella at QPAC in January, and over Easter he will be taking the stage in New Zealand at the Biennial Alana Haynes Australasian Awards. Family, friends and inspirational teachers have certainly helped Cormac this far, but his genuine love of dance, natural talent and determination will keep him, deservedly, dancing his way to his dreams.

easier. “I love city life, but I really value the upbringing I’ve had here,” he tells me. “The Sunshine Coast is special, and the friendships here are broader – you know so many people.” Recently, Cormac received some very exciting news, which he didn’t believe when his mum first told him. “I’ve been accepted into the Australian Ballet School’s Interstate Program for 2017, which means I travel to Melbourne throughout the year for personal visits, classes and a Boys Intensive Week in July!” Cormac’s excitement is palpable. I wonder if he sometime pinches himself to check he’s not dreaming, and ask where he’d like to be ten years from now. “I’d like to dance with the Queensland Ballet. The way they teach, hold themselves, the feel they create. Ideally I’d like to be a principal dancer!” And the ideal role? “Romeo, in Romeo and Juliet, I’d love to dance that,” he grins. All this opportunity has come about due to many factors, in addition to Cormac’s natural gift and passion.

Nourishing our next generation Chloe Dyce grew up on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland on a small property with horses, and attended Woombye Primary School. These days she is a nutritionist with QCWA Country Kitchens, working on food education, improving people’s health and even creating cookbooks!







How did it all begin? I completed an undergraduate degree in Health Sciences at the University of Queensland, followed by a Masters of Nutrition and Dietetics Studies in 2012. Did you ever think you would be working with the QCWA? I have been working as an APD (accredited practising dietician) for three years across a number of different areas both within Queensland and internationally. Although, I never expected to be working with QCWA (Queensland Country Women’s Association) it has been a wonderful opportunity to work with an organisation that provide such critical services to communities across the state. How did your career progress to working with the community? I began by working as research officer before I moved to Cape York and was the dietitian at the Cooktown Multi-Purpose Health Service. It was this experience that cemented my passion for public health nutrition and working with communities. I then seized an opportunity to work in Papua New Guinea. What were your other roles after uni? Working and living in PNG for 18 months was my most challenging and rewarding role to date and inspired me to return to Australia to complete an Executive Masters of Business Administration. I aim to graduate at the end of 2017 and I hope to forge a meaningful career within health care reform and service development. How do your days vary? In my current role I am very lucky - no day is the same! We, the QCWA Country Kitchens team, can be found in the office developing nutrition education resources, planning for the cookbooks, building marketing tools, updating our social media platforms or we are out on the road engaging with the QCWA branches and their local communities. What is your catchment area? The program’s catchment area extends across the state of Queensland where there are active QCWA branches. What do you love about this project? What I love most is the shared learning experience and community service skills, which help improve the health of Queenslanders.

I have learnt so much and we are very proud to see the public engaging with the local branches, expanding their cooking skills and understanding the important role of nutrition in health. Why do you choose to commute from Palmwoods to work? After living away from the Coast for many years, when my husband and I returned from PNG, we knew we wanted to be based at ‘home’. I choose to take the train into the city each day for work and I almost always use this time productively, and catch up on reading and assignments for my degree. You can’t beat the lifestyle that the Sunshine Coast offers. What are your memories of growing up in the Hinterland? Some of my fondest memories are growing up in Palmwoods; something that stands out is riding an hour to and from Pony Club every Sunday with my sisters. Our family could not afford a horse float at the time and we would ride through people’s properties and local streets to reach the Pony Club. I guess this experience has instilled in me that with commitment and drive you can overcome many hurdles. I am driven by a passion for community development and preventative health, so taking the opportunity to work with the QCWA was a perfect fit.

Injuries stump charity cricket A

FTER A SPATE OF injuries at Maleny’s Annual Charity Cricket Match last month, Celebrity Eleven captain, Andrew Powell MP admits it was far from ideal. "There was a hamstring, a groin, and a lot of old men feeling sore and sorry for themselves the next day," Captain Powell said. And for what? The Golden Thong Trophy is back in the hands of Captain Simon Denver’s Maleny Maulers, after only one year in the ownership of the Celebrity Eleven. "The writing was on the wall early, we lacked the batting quality we sought in our previous team. "Too many wickets, not enough runs, and when the first six from the Maleny Maulers went sailing over the top of the boundary to crash into the Lung Foundation Chris Emery's car, we knew it was all over," sighed the captain. At least the day raised over $1500 for Lung Foundation Australia (lungfoundation.com.au) in memory and support of Maleny's Dr Peter Oliver and his wife Ann, who both died of lung cancer. Neither smoked a cigarette. The charity match is the longest running LFA campaign, not only raising money for fighting the disease, but also removing the stigma attached to one of Australia’s biggest killers. Unfortunately over the years, the mostly older cricketers have succumbed to a variety of damaged bodily parts, some even requiring time off work! "As a joke I mentioned to my opposing captain, who might I add didn't set foot on the field this year, 'maybe we should try charity golf next year?' " said Andrew.

The suggestion was met with 'exuberance' from Captain Denver, however Andrew cautioned, "My team are still seeking revenge, so the jury is out on what format the sporting endeavour will take next year.” If you have a suggestion on which sport it should be for 2017, send an email to: glass.house@parliament.qld.gov.au

Lucky that paramedic Jack was on site for Captain Andrew Powell. It wasn't just the old who were injured - Andrew's son Dan is tended to by Jared. The outlandish 'nightwear' provides much diversion on and off the field

program for 2017 that has been carefully chosen by our program director, Peter Lavery, and artistic advisor, Christopher Ross-Smith,” said Professor Radbourne. In reviewing the 2016 program, Professor Lavery said he was especially heartened by the success of the play Motherland. “We like to introduce some live theatre to our programs as we do not often get the chance to see professional theatre on the Range. For people who find it difficult to drive down to Brisbane this is important to us, and the success of this new and somewhat controversial play was a tribute to that.” The group have also presented the John Coulton Brass Quintet, the Queensland Chamber Orchestra, Camerata of St John, internationally acclaimed and hilarious Groucho and the ever popular Melissa Western. “We have another year of five excellent professional presentations for our audiences, starting on March 23. We are keeping the details under wraps, but can promise a dramatic theatre piece and music from opera to rock. So come along on and celebrate with us,” Peter Lavery said.

Can you guess how was it moved to chase the town? Did you know Beerburrum was the largest Soldier Settlement Scheme in Australia after World War I? Do you know who the first known European was to explore the Glasshouse Mountains? Do you know the story behind the newly-constructed chapel in Montville? All these questions and more can be answered in a new book that celebrates the Sunshine Coast. August 2017 will be the official 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast, so what better time to share the warmth and brightness of this special part of Australia.

Anne Moorhouse says her new book My Sunshine Coast includes communities of Maleny and Landsborough

My Sunshine Coast provides a personal look at a unique area of South East Queensland. Author Anne Moorhouse explores a diversity of locations, and introduces some of the people who contribute to the coast’s appeal. This book journeys through the history of the Sunshine Coast: the early years, when Aborigines were the traditional owners of the land; the early days of white settlement, when the wealth of precious timber was found; and finally, the modern day growth and developments. Today, the coast’s lifestyle continues to be popular with those who long for a sea-change from life in the cities. Anne shares stories from residents, regular visitors, and community members, whose dedication to the coast has contributed greatly to a way of life that is the envy of many. Wherever you are on the Sunshine Coast, be it at one of the numerous beaches, in the cooler air of the Hinterland, or walking through one of the various national parks, you are never far from the peace and tranquillity of nature. The many colourful photographs complement the stories that are told and replicate the vibrant colours of the coast— the sapphire sea, the golden beaches, and the azure sky. This book is not meant to be simply a tourist guide, but rather a book that visitors to the Sunshine Coast can take home to remind them of their captivating visit; a book to give to friends as an introduction to the coast. My Sunshine Coast will take the reader on a journey through a place of scenic beauty and introduce them to some of the people who have made the Sunshine Coast the exceptional place it is today. Find it at Rosetta Books, Maple Street, Maleny.

The Birdman’s Wife

The Hidden Life of Trees


Melissa Ashley

by Peter Wohlleben

by Torben Kuhlmann

Inspired by a letter found tucked inside her famous husband’s papers, The Birdman’s Wife imagines the fascinating inner life of Elizabeth Gould, who was so much more than just the woman behind the man. Elizabeth was a woman ahead of her time, juggling the demands of her artistic life with her roles as wife, lover and helper to a passionate and demanding genius, and as a devoted mother who gave birth to eight children. In a society obsessed with natural history and the discovery of new species, the birdman’s wife was at its glittering epicentre. Her artistry breathed life into hundreds of exotic finds, from her husband’s celebrated collections to Charles Darwin’s famous Galapagos finches. From a naïve and unsure young girl to a bold adventurer determined to find her own voice and place in the world, The Birdman’s Wife paints an indelible portrait of an extraordinary woman overlooked by history, until now.

In The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben shares his deep love of woods and forests and explains the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in the woodland and the amazing scientific processes behind the wonders of which we are blissfully unaware. Like the fact that, when it comes to deciduous trees “the timing of the leaf drop, it seems, really is question of character.” Drawing on ground-breaking new discoveries, Wohlleben presents the science behind the secret and previously unknown life of trees and their communication abilities; he describes how these discoveries have informed his own practices in the forest around him. As he says, a happy forest is a healthy forest, and he believes that eco-friendly practices not only are economically sustainable but also benefit the health of our planet and the mental and physical health of all who live on Earth.

On the heels of Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse comes Armstrong: A Mouse on the Moon where dreams are determined only by the size of your imagination and the biggest innovators are the smallest of all. Armstrong is a little mouse who wanted to show the rest of the mice that the moon wasn't a ball of cheese. He works untiringly to understand the concepts involved in space travel, and how to create a safe rocket ship to help him arrive at his destination. Despite the obstacles, Armstrong never gives up, until his dream comes true. Full of detailed and expressive illustrations form the incredibly talented Torben Kuhlmann, Armstrong is sure to delight both young and old alike.

HE ECONOMIC THEORY known as supply side is better known as trickle down, because it goes something like this. You give large sums of money to those who already have it, because they know the best way to handle it – they will invest it rather than simply trouser the loot. As a result, the benefits trickle down to the rest of the community in the form of more jobs, better productivity and higher wages and conditions. And there may even be a few drops left for those at the very bottom: everyone benefits. The problem is that even if this happy formula works (and history has shown that it seldom does) it is manifestly unfair: the bulk of the cash splash is retained at the top and the rest of the hierarchy scramble to soak up as much of the rest as possible. As a result there is very little left at the bottom, so inequality increases. But the good news is that the economy gets an immediate sugar hit, which delights the bean counters and the politicians who need as many favourable headlines as possible before the next election. For this reason, perhaps, Malcolm Turnbull and Scott Morrison embraced the idea of trickle down at the last budget: they offered mammoth, progressive tax cuts to the corporate sector and very little for anyone else. In theory, this would boost jobs and growth, and although the initial cost to revenue would be considerable, in the end the dividends would drive down the deficit and we would all live happily ever after. Of course some of us would live more happily than others, but that’s the way it goes. Unfortunately the voters did not buy it: understandably, they were deeply suspicious of the idea that the moguls would behave in such a far-sighted and even altruistic manner as the theory suggested. Their belief was that most would simply spend the funds on themselves and their lucky shareholders and would tell their customers to suck it up, as, unfortunately, has all too often been their wont. And importantly, the punters wanted their slice of the money now, not in some dim and improbable future. So many of them locked in a more convincing trickle

down theory of their own: the trickling down of Malcolm Turnbull’s approval rating. Interestingly, political trickle down has a lot in common with economic trickle down: the big hit starts right at the top. The Prime Minister has suffered an immediate and potentially catastrophic fall in the polls, collapsing even below the level maintained by Tony Abbott before the leadership coup of last year. According to Newspoll, Turnbull’s disapproval is considerably worse than that of Bill Shorten, and although he is still leading Shorten as preferred Prime Minister, the gap is rapidly closing. But so far, to the relief of his colleagues, his government is still clinging on. It is behind the opposition by four points in the two party preferred vote, and its primary vote is now under 40 per cent, but the public disillusionment with Turnbull himself has not yet filtered through to the party – well, not yet. And that, Turnbull might well feel, is clearly unjust. After all, not all the stuff-ups have been his fault; there should be plenty of his dysfunctional crew to share the blame. Morrison, Christopher Pyne, Michael Keenan, Peter Dutton, Kelly O’Dwyer, George Brandis, George Christensen, the gone but not forgotten Eric Abetz and of course and always Tony Abbott – there are any number of potential punching bags. The buck might stop with him, but surely if the something is hitting the fan, some of it should land on his colleagues. The problem is that he can’t afford to say so; if he did, they might turn on him and make things even more difficult. So he will just have to wear it and accept the melancholy fact that, just as was the case with Abbott, he is the one risking dragging down his government to the point where the slide becomes irredeemable: the point where someone – anyone – is desperate enough to provoke a crisis. Fortunately, this is still a fair distance away, if only because there is no real alternative. The appetite for a return to Abbott is confined to the lunar right and no other contenders are even in the picture. So Turnbull will continue to stumble on, flinging bandaids, nostrums and placebos in the hope that one of them will strike a chord with a seriously disengaged electorate.

As this will be the last meeting for 2016 we will be having an afternoon tea so please bring a plate to share. Call Nora for further information: 0418 495 776.

Typical was last week’s speech by Morrison on housing affordability, in which the only remedy he could propose that was the states should release more residential land to developers. He had no ideas of his own: any suggestions that the Commonwealth should be involved through fixing the tax regime had already been discounted as part of the election jihad on Shorten and his package of negative gearing and capital gains reform. And even if the states were inclined to co-operate – and there is very little evidence of that – simply allowing more development is not the point. It is highly unlikely to appeal to first home buyers, who do not want more out of town properties with no amenities or transport that they actually need, even if they could afford them. Most of the time they can’t, because they would be outbid by investors who have absolutely no interest in actually living in the apartment blocks they own: they are far more concerned with moving into harbourside mansions in the manner of Malcolm Turnbull. And now our preposterous Attorney-General, George Brandis, has announced yet another inquiry into Aboriginal custody – a brainstorm that even Turnbull’s own Indigenous Council Chairman, Warren Mundine, denounces. Turnbull and his ministers are more interested in generating headlines, however ephemeral, than in outcomes: as long as they are busy, as long as they are seen to be doing something, this is sufficient – at least for the moment. And when, and if, they actually get legislation through the senate, it will be spun as a triumph, in spite of the fact that it will either be unpopular with some sections of the public (like cutting parental leave schemes) or irrelevant to the vast bulk of them (like reinstating the Building and Construction Commission). In the end they are concerned not with the quality of the government, but with the quantity of the media it can generate. Their only hope is not that they will make a major breakthrough, but that eventually, if they pile it on hard enough, something will trickle down. The views expressed in Mungo's column are his and not necessarily the views of the HT team.

So you think you can recycle? Sunshine Coast residents successfully diverted 101,296 tonnes from landfill in 2015/2016 with 39% of all waste generated recycled. While this is a great effort, together we can do even better. Planet Ark’s National Recycling Week (November 7–13) highlights the many opportunities for improvements in waste reduction and recycling for Sunshine Coast residents. Cr Jenny McKay said Sunshine Coast Council was helping educate residents by holding a free Recycle Right Open Day on November 12, 9.30-11.30am at the Waste2Resource Education Centre where everything there was to know about recycling would be revealed.

art gallery! Feature Artist Montville Art Gallery November 2016

A Passion Shared

Ron Cameron and Ken Wenzel


ON CAMeRON AND KeN WeNzeL are both talented, self-taught artists who are passionate about the Australian Landscape. Both began painting at a very young age and both have won numerous awards. “The first major boost to my confidence was winning the “People’s Choice Award” at the Moomba Arts Festival in Melbourne when I was still in my twenties”, Ron told us. “Then, the year I became a full time professional artist, I won the prize for the most popular painting in the Redcliff Art Show.” Ken was even younger than Ron when he experienced his first major accolades. “When I was fifteen, I won the Sunday Mail Art Competition. I also won first prize in the Royal National Art Show four years in succession.” Both artists agree that it gives them a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction painting the beautiful Australian Landscape. For their November show, Ron has produced paintings of the Flinders Ranges, Ormiston Gorge and Simpson Dessert whilst Ken has chosen to paint scenes from South east Queensland and northern New South Wales.

Montville Art Gallery

Meet and Greet If you would like to meet Ron and Ken they will both be at The Montville Art Gallery Sunday, November 13th from 10 to 3. If you are unable to visit the Gallery on that day, you can still see all of Ron and Ken’s paintings on the Gallery website www.montvilleartgallery.com.au The Montville Art Gallery is located at 138 Main St, Montville opposite the Village Green. It is open seven days a week from 10 to 5pm.



OuSeD IN THe LITTLe red cottage, this is one with a difference. Known as Forest Art Collective, the gallery is an open community made up of local artists and craftspersons. Gallery Manager, Karen Shaw, said, “Our goal is to inspire community participation in arts by providing workshops, exhibitions and opportunity for the community to showcase their own works in the gallery, as well as offering a relaxing, creative and welcoming space where everyone can share, learn and be inspired”. Forest Art Collective operates as a working gallery – you can watch the artists and learn more about their media and techniques. Thursdays are Community Art Days where people are invited to drop in, have a cuppa and be nurtured in an artistic space. Artists provide informal exploration and tuition on a wide range of art experiences including paper making, drawing, printmaking and painting. Recently added to the gallery space is a Printmaking Studio. The group is very fortunate to have a large publicaccess printing press, available for use by local artists. Forest Art Collective holds monthly exhibitions in the Green Room – these are either solo exhibitions from members of the Collective or combined with other local artists or groups. Opening on Friday, November 4 is an exhibition called Heart Space by the gallery’s curator, Laura Vecmane. “This exhibition is all about my dreams, my hopes, my love. In Heart Space all is well. I like to be there. It is also deep and meaningful. It is very connected to nature,” explains Laura.


Artists Leeza Stratford, Laura Vecmane and Karen Shaw and seven other creatives are currently exhibiting at Forest Art Collective

Rosa Mason Bruhn and William Dalzell were married in the DulongKureelpa School of Arts in 1907, one year after the official opening. The land was donated to the community in 1906. The opening took the form of a concert and dance celebrated on Friday, November 30 1906, attended by about 200 people from Montville, Mapleton, Nambour and Yandina. Gillian Hall from Dulong Futures said, “Sadly, the council sold this historic site about 16 years ago, now approved for residential development.

Beersheba Living Museum is keeping hisTory alive

by Gay Liddington


He OFFICIAL OPeNING of the Beersheba Living Museum, Maleny was held on Saturday, 29 October. The date chosen closely aligns with the 99-year anniversary of the Battle of Beersheba. The charge of the 4th Light Horse Brigade etched itself in history when, at dusk on 31 October 1917, the brigade fought and broke through Turkish lines to secure the town of Beersheba. It is known as one of the last great cavalry charges. Gail Denver, Vice President of Maleny District Sport and Recreation Club (MDSRC) tells of their involvement in bringing the museum to fruition. “The MDSRC has been working on this since 2010. It has been a wonderful collaborative community effort involving RSL and service clubs, Light Horse troops and local community groups. It is wholly backed by Sunshine Coast Council. “The Beersheba Living Museum will keep alive the memory and sacrifice of the Light Horsemen that went to war. It will serve to Beersheba Living Museum opened last month

educate visitors, in particular school children, and preserve history. “Thousands of horses from Australia went to war and only one came back. It’s an extremely emotional story. “Also, the museum is an integral part of the Maleny Community Precinct and its future. It’s very visible, being on the walking trail. And so, when people are out walking they will be able to see the 5th Light Horse Regiment – Maleny Troop, when they are training and going through their exercises.” In speaking with Gail, I gleaned many layers that make up the Beersheba Living Museum.

They combined to pay respect to our heroes. Those in attendance included representatives from Sunshine Coast Council and Caloundra, Maroochydore and Gympie RSL Clubs.

In the Wild Aussie Cuisine

What's in the Spotlight


T NeVeR FAILS to amaze me the generosity of the indigenous peoples of this land, who willingly shared and continue to share their knowledge and traditional resources with the strangers who came for dinner and decided stay... The first european arrivals however were often so hostile in their attitude to this new land that anything it offered would never be as good as what was brought from the old country or anywhere else for that matter. Which is a strange attitude, because indigenous people have lived on this continent, harvested and shared the wealth of the land for at least 60,000 years! It took horticulturalists in Hawaii to bring the first Australian native plant to the world stage and launch the Macadamia. Believe it or not, until relatively recently, most macadamia varieties grown here - where varieties bred in Hawaii! The bounty of this land is considerable, and often while on bush walks I will find numerous fruits and leaves to munch on. Familiar favourites include Native Raspberries, Native Ginger, the new shoots of Scrambling Lily, Midyim and Rainforest Spinach. If you are keen for a bit of protein perhaps, then termites can be a good snack and satisfyingly vengeful if you have a house that has suffered at the jaws of these little guys?

International Volunteers Day To say a big thank you to the Sunshine Coast’s invaluable volunteers Council is hosting a special brunch on International Volunteers Day. So if you volunteer to monitor manta rays, help the homeless and everything in between, come to Lake Kawana Community Centre from 10am to noon on Monday 5 December for a Christmas brunch and entertainment with friends.

Doggy do’s and doggy don’t Taking your dog for a walk, a run around the park or to the beach is a great way to keep your furry friend happy and healthy, but don’t forget that your dog must always be kept on a lead when in public. If you visit one of the 29 dog off leash areas across the Coast, be mindful that your dog must still be under effective control. And please, always pick up their poop and dispose of it responsibly.

Bush food must haves that you should plant in your yard include: Midyim (Austromyrtus dulcis) is a great low growing shrub/groundcover with attractive weeping foliage and tasty white berries, fresh from the bush – kids love them; Lillypilly’s (Syzygium spp.) are edible all edible, if you are hungry enough, but from our local ones the Riberry S. Luehmannii, is not only bountiful, but tastes good raw and even glaced in a sugar syrup; Davidson Plums (Davidsonia spp.) although not strictly local, are spectacular foliage specimens with their large leaves and large beautiful looking plum like fruit. However they are a tad sour, but nothing that a few spoons of sugar can’t fix to make a great jam or syrup; Plum Pine (Podocarpus elatus) also produce a juicy succulent, plum like fruit with a pleasant pine taste and again, fantastic for jams and syrups. Bunya (Araucaria bidwillii) is last but not least to be discussed. These are serious food producing trees. They have enabled great gatherings of indigenous peoples, from time immemorial - and we are only just beginning to get a ‘taste’ for what great adaptive tucker they can be. Bunya season is almost upon us so keep your eyes out for cones that get blown out of trees before Christmas as these are tender and succulent. In late January when the mature crop falls boil, bake, mash or grind - so many great ways to cook and prepare!

Green Droughts


N GeNeRAL, RAINFALL registration is less for this time of year than has been recorded in the past, and it does appear to be increasingly difficult to base expectations on past history. There have been many minor rainfall events that have kept plants looking green, but few that have really replenished the soil moisture. The result of this has been very little run-off into the creeks and not much moisture that is readily available longer term to the vegetation. This scenario is often referred to as a green drought. Those heavily into revegetation have probably lost some trees. The common practice of aiming for moderately dense planting in the interest of early canopy closure is a good one, but there will be losses over time as trees grow, spread their roots more widely and compete for available soil moisture. Don’t be dis-heartened; this is natural thinning. It’s particularly disappointing to lose an old tree but, as in a natural forest,

other plants will fill the gap over time. Different soil types hold and release water at different rates but if it doesn’t rain, then it may be necessary to think even more carefully about plant choices and management.

Mulch is doubly important for retaining moisture around the root zone of young trees but the down side is likely to be a ‘bandicoot attack’. That moist soil is perfect for digging. They are one of our natural cultivators, even though we might often wish they would dig somewhere else. When it comes to plant choice, it’s always valuable to look at patches of bush in your own area and see how the local rainforest, eucalypt forest or other vegetation type is faring. How is the understory coping in dry times, is the foliage increasingly sparse on established trees? Trees will drop leaves to reduce moisture loss via transpiration. The vegetation itself can tell the observer quite a lot about what may be happening in the root zone. Ask Barung about plants suited to slightly drier areas as we adapt to changing conditions.

The use of the appropriate fertiliser at the right time and correct rate of application is most important for optimal results. All fertilisers have analysis numbers on their packaging. example being, 15%N (nitrogen) 10%P (phosphorus), 12%K (potassium) and some may also contain a range of trace elements such as zinc, boron and manganese. In very simple terms, nitrogen promotes vegetative growth or top growth. Phosphorus aids in flower buds, fruit and root development and potassium builds

Loors Landscaping

strong healthy plants. Plants that grow fast and vigorous such lawns in summer require a fertiliser with more nitrogen than the other two elements. During the slower growing periods of the year, plants use less nitrogen but are still working slow and steady at laying the foundation for the following years buds, flower and fruit production. A fertiliser with an analysis such as 7-25-7 which is high in phosphorus will therefore aid in abundant bud and flower production. Fertiliser could be also applied as a liquid foliar spray where the nutrients are absorbed by the leaves.

It is better to under fertilise than over fertilise. Be sure to read your product information and use the appropriate fertiliser for the particular plant! Happy gardening!

From single use plastic to re-user revolution by Morag Gamble

O YOu ALSO FIND it absurd that half the world's plastics are used only once before ending up in landfill? Plastic never goes away - it just degrades into ever smaller particles. Did you know that apart from the small amount of plastic which has been incinerated, every piece of plastic which was ever produced still exists on earth somewhere, and in the first 10 years of this century MORe plastic was produced than the entire last century! The top four single use plastics of concern are plastic bags, plastic bottles, takeaway coffee cups and straws. Think about ways you can reduce the single use plastic in your life. Here are a few ideas: 1. PLASTIC BAGS: Carry cloth shopping bags. One million plastic bags are used every minute and can take 1000 years to disintegrate. Also, let your fruit and veg be free. You do not need to put them in the plastic bags provided on rolls. Take them loose to the checkout or use a paper bag if available. Why not make your own lightweight reusable fresh produce bags? Try also to avoid buying pre-wrapped fruits and vegetables.

2. PLASTIC BOTTLES: Carry your own water bottle with you and use tap water. Did you know that 100 million plastic water bottles are used every day. each year in Australia we spend over half a billion dollars on bottled water and recycle less than 40% of the bottles - an activity that creates 60,000 litres of greenhouse gas emissions. 3. COFFEE CUPS: Carry your own reusable coffee cup. Can you believe that globally we throw away 500 billion coffee cups a year after just one use? That's a million a minute - an estimated 1 billion in Australia alone. Coffee cups are estimated to be the second largest contributor to litter after plastic bottles. Most paper ones have a plastic lining and are therefore not recyclable. A better idea still is to slow down and have your coffee in a ceramic mug at a cafe … with a friend. 4. STRAWS: Be straw free. Over 500,000,000 plastic straws are made everyday. They are in the top 10 of plastic pollutants in our oceans. If you really like using straws, then try stainless steel straws, which are widely available. Let's abandon this throw-away culture and become part of the re-user revolution.

ONTINuING THe THeMe of tree weeds from last edition, when we identified the Chinese elm, Celtis sinensis, as public enemy number one, I’ll give you a couple more of the top bad guys on my personal hit list. First is the Himalayan or Mountain or Evergreen Ash, Fraxinus grifithii. I can’t believe it is still available for sale in nurseries. Common names can once again prove to be confusing, with eucalyptus regnans, the world’s tallest flowering tree, native to Victoria and Tasmania, also called Mountain Ash.

The Mountain Ash I’m talking about spreads so prolifically it is frightening. I can see it becoming the next Privet. It should be flowering any time now with creamy white panicles covering the tree. Shoot on sight. Next is the Tabebuia from Central

America. There are two types on the Range, a yellow flowering and a pink flowering variety. every year they produce a stunning display on their deciduous branches which has just finished, and every year, even though I love endemic species so much, I’m tempted to plant one of these at home. Then I’ll visit a garden and see an infestation of their offspring, years after the parent tree has been removed, and the sobering reality of this species’ weed potential shocks me back to my senses. Don’t be tempted by this vegetative Medusa.

We love Witta Market! A

FTeR NINe YeARS, the Blackall Range Growers Market, otherwise known to locals as the Witta Market, has had a change of management. The new kids on the block are looking to increase the market’s profile for the benefit of both stallholders and market-goers. Farmers and local producers are supportive of moves to encourage more people to come and enjoy the ambience of the Old Witta School grounds, while purchasing organic and chemical free wholefoods, along with meeting friends and enjoying great local takeaway fare and coffee. The unique and picturesque environment is extraordinarily family and dog friendly, having tons of space for kids and pets to run around safely. Many markets can no longer accommodate fur kids and we are glad to provide a space for well-behaved paws. Shoppers can choose from a range of organic goods including meat; fresh fruit and vegetables; nuts, seeds and dried fruit. There are seedlings; exquisite cakes and treats;

beautifully made, chemical free preserves and butters, plants, mulch hay and fine massage (thanks Helena). There are cheeses and seafood, smoothies and honey, sweet pineapples and so much more. For breakfast choose from Jamie’s tasty pastries, Owen’s Indian experience and pulled pork or the market BBQ, which provides quality meals, cooked to order - all for reasonable prices. Our regular band plays well-known tunes in their own unique style and entertain young and old alike. The market is held on the third Saturday of every month 7.30am – midday. Next market is on Saturday, November 19. See you there!

St Mary’s Hall in Montville


ROuND THe VILLAGe GReeN in Montville, you can soak yourself in history - six memorial trees to honour six Montville men who did not return from World War I, St Mary's Anglican Church (1914), the Memorial Gates (1921) and the Village Hall (1903). Then there is St Mary's Hall, a fraction of the size of the other buildings but a local treasure. The Montville Heritage Walk outlines its early history, the former Soldiers' Memorial Hall" was built by returned servicemen in 1941 from timber milled at the Flaxton Sawmill, with later additions using timber from the old Kanaka Barracks on JC Dixon’s property in Flaxton. The hall was opened in 1942 and functioned as the Montville sub branch of the RSL until 1978. It is a small gable-roofed, weatherboard hall with the long axis facing Main Street, a kitchen and verandah were added. Plaques fastened to the front wall commemorate the Salvation Army arrival to Montville in 1897, the verandah addition in August 1995, hall construction during World War II and the donation of the hall to St Mary's Church in 1978, when it was renamed ‘Montville Memorial Hall, St Mary's Church Hall and Community Centre’. A 2002 plaque acknowledges World War II soldiers and the ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels' who supported them in the Milne Bay and Kokoda

campaigns, 1942.* Now the hall regularly houses exhibitions by the BRVA - Blackall Range Visual Artists, and looks over the monthly markets in Montville, held on the second Saturday of the month. It will also be the backdrop for Montville's Christmas events. Since 2015, much has been done to improve the hall, which hosts many community groups in the Montville area. Floors have been repaired, walls painted, kitchen upgraded, plumbing improved...and more is planned. Heather Wade, from Team St Mary's said, "There is always more to be done... the hall's roof needs replacing and the church's roof also needs attention." The St Mary's community recently held a lovely ‘Welcome Spring’ function of delicious food, wine, prizes, raffles and more in aid of their ongoing fundraising to refurbish "The Hall on the Green" and St Mary's Church. "The money raised at the ‘Welcome Spring’ event....which we hope will become an annual event... will make this restoration work possible," said Heather. "Our work will enhance the Heritage Precinct for the enjoyment of all the people on the range." The Heritage Precinct is located at the intersection of Main Street (MontvilleMapleton Road) and Razorback Road. *Find out more: https://environment.ehp.qld.gov.au

ILLIONS OF PeOPLe around the globe are losing their lives to stroke each year, despite most strokes being treatable, according to new figures from the World Stroke Organization. Alarmingly, more than 6.5 million deaths are caused by stroke each year making it the world’s second biggest killer and far deadlier than car crashes (1.3 million) and lung cancer (1.6 million) combined. Stroke Foundation Chief executive Officer and World Stroke Organization Board member Sharon McGowan said many lives could be saved with improved access to treatment.

McGowan said. “Around the world there will be more than 17 million  strokes this year and we know far too many people will be left with a significant disability – or worse lose their life – because they didn’t have access to best-practice treatment.


“In Australia, around 20,000 stroke patients a year are denied access to the full benefits of stroke unit care and just seven percent of all ischaemic stroke patients receive clot busting treatment – resulting in death and unnecessary disability requiring a lifetime of care. “Recognising the signs of stroke early, treating it as a medical emergency with admission to a specialised stroke unit, and access to the best professional care can substantially improve outcomes. “Australia is championing significant advances in stroke treatment and care but the health system must now adapt to support health professionals in the delivery of these advancements. World Stroke Organization President Stephen Davis said more needed to be done to improve equity of access to critical stroke treatments, particularly for low income communities.

Six steps to improve stroke outcomes:

 but sadly too many patients continue to miss out,” Ms

“The right stroke care can prevent stroke and save lives. We are calling on governments to take action to improve awareness that stroke can happen to anyone and increase equity of access to critical stroke treatments.”

“Improving health outcomes will reduce the costly impact of stroke on healthcare systems around the world – even with limited resources we can do something to improve stroke outcomes,” Professor Davis said.

1. Early recognition makes a big difference so we encourage the public to learn the signs of F.A.S.T. (Face drooping; Arm weakness; Speech slurred; Time to call an ambulance) and know to take immediate action. 2. Organised stroke care in specialised stroke units improves the chance of a good recovery outcome by 14 percent. 3. The use of clot busting treatment (thrombolysis) improves the chance of a good outcome by 30 percent in appropriate patients. 4. The exciting advance of clot retrieval means that a dramatic 50 percent of eligible patients can have a better recovery outcome. 5. Rehabilitation is a critical step in the treatment process. 6. Primary and secondary prevention treatments and lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of a stroke.

Ayurvedic Health Advice to Suit You

Food for thought


HAT We eAT DOeSN’T just effect our physical body it contributes to our thoughts and emotions. Wendy Rosenfeldt understanding the doshas gives us the knowledge of how to balance our mental state through diet. Most people accept that eating fresh, organic food will give them more clarity than living off junk food but the effects of food is far more complicated than just the quality. Foods that have predominantly the airy Vata qualities of being light, dry, rough, hard and cold will increase these characteristics in the eater. If you feel spaced out and anxious a warm cooked meal with sweet, salty and sour tastes will feel more satisfying than a salad or plate of raw vegies. People often crave heavier food with sweet or salty tastes when they are stressed or under pressure. Instead of turning to chips or chocolate to sooth your worried mind you can add more oil to your meals and include sweet, sour and salty tastes to your diet. Sweet doesn’t have to mean sugar, it can be found in rice, pasta, sweet potatoes and most summer fruits. Foods exhibiting the fiery Pitta qualities of being hot, sour, spicy and intense will bring passion and fire to the thoughts and actions of the consumer. The Italian diet is a good example of Pitta increasing cuisine. Pitta is increased by sour, pungent and salty tastes. Tomatoes and cheese have a slightly sour quality, while onions and garlic are heating to the body. Red meat, olives and most cheese is also salty. Tradition Italian dishes such as Pizza, pasta and salami are all Pitta in nature. This may help to explain the sterotype of the passionate Italian.

If you are feeling frustrated or angry, food with predominantly sweet, bitter and astringent tastes will sooth the internal fire. Sweet, cold gelato and fresh green salads are often part of the Italian meal and can provide cooling sweetness to balance hot tempers. While all constitutional types can be found in every nationality. The Kapha characteristics of unctuous, olive skin, thick hair and a solid or curvaceous figure is more common to Italians then to the english. The heaviness of Kapha is balanced by a bit of spice in the food and also by the bitter taste of leafy greens and coffee. Indians also have some Kapha in their make-up, giving thick, strong hair, unctuous skin and often a laid back nature. While it might seem strange to Anglo Saxons to eat hot food in such a warm climate, the predominance of laidback and sometimes sluggish Kapha is stimulated by the chilli and spices that is common in Indian food. If you experience dullness in the mind or a tendency towards depression, then pungent, bitter and astringent food can offset the feelings of heaviness. Leafy greens such as kale and spinach will bring mental freshness whereas ice cream, cheese and desserts will only contribute to lethargy and mental fatigue. For a balanced diet it is good to include a variety of tastes and textures and adjust to suit your nature, imbalances and the seasons.

Roster November 2016

HAT IS THe SOuRCe of your understanding? What drives your opinions and your actions? Have you as an adult just settled into accepting as truth the things you’re told or read or hear through the media? Many of us have come through the normal schooling systems and regardless of the level of our academic standing, along the way we have learned to accept authority as a reliable source of information. Perhaps now is a good time to research and investigate things that you might just be inclined to take as truth. There are many great people in all walks of life who are standing up and questioning everything from the way and why our economy and elected leaders make the decisions they make that affect us all so strongly, to why chemicals that are proven to cause cancer and other serious health problems are permitted to be used despite there being alternatives that are not harmful. We have alternative practitioners that are understanding that Vitamin Love and emotional and spiritual healing are sometimes more powerful than a nutritional supplement when treating a patient. We see our young people look at their possible futures and feel discouraged. We see people who have vested interests and no real integrity or leadership at the head of countries. We see our

beautiful earth disregarded and destroyed for greed. Real health and happiness are born of many things that come together. We see that walking 10 mins 2 times a day is great medicine for the body and mind, we see that meditation and mindfulness is being recognized as a medicine for the body as well as the mind, we see that what we eat influences not just our waist line but also our health and mental and emotional wellbeing. We know that what the mind believes changes our chemistry and our cellular function. We see that forgiveness for ourselves and others frees our bodies and minds from the toxic effects of negative chemistry, we see that we feel better and interact differently with others when we feel better about ourselves. Our bodies and our beautiful world are Divinely designed to work well, our lives are meant to be joyful and to make sense, begin to question why they often don’t, look beneath the surface of things, and live with understanding in all areas.

Can you believe it? Thongs that are good for your feet www.info@malenyyogacentre.com www .info@malenyyogacentre.com


RTHOTIC THONGS? That are actually good for your feet? Yes, you did read correctly, these are in fact thongs being recommended by a podiatrist.

Fully Equipped Studio Certified & Experienced Teachers Teachers

Attention health professionals

In general terms the average thong offers no support and our feet actually work harder in them, which can result in various aches and pains. But this has now changed since the development of a fully customised orthotic thong - footwear produced via Paromed 3D foot scanning and computer modelling.

Contact Karen Muir to promote your news or business in the Hinterland Times’ Health, Wellness & Beauty pages.

Being proud Queenslanders we are very excited to be able to offer this treatment option. So whether you are someone that has problem feet requiring orthotic support, or are just looking for the most comfortable, well-fitting casual footwear, then these are the solution for you. Custom orthotic thongs are available through First in Feet Podiatry located within Maleny Physiotherapy. Private health rebates are available for eligible customers. Appointment bookings can be made on 5494 3911.
