CR LYN’S COLUMN Wow, what a busy time for your local councillor. Not sure whether I am Arthur or Martha at the moment. I know, not politically correct probably in this day and age but it is an old saying and one that fits this point in my life. Have spent a bit more time at Monash Lodge than usual as the ressies have been showing off their artistic talents by doing some fairly spectacular works of art for our local ArtsLink group for their Peace Pole Project.

Axel attended, made a nuisance of himself by wanting attention and ate rainbow cake. All in all he had a pretty good morning. Thank goodness he is an obedient little thing. More on the Peace Poles as the time gets closer.

Attended the Senior Cent Sale and actually won a few prizes. These were shared among Monash Lodge ressies that were not able to attend.

Had the best hot chips at Penny’s with some of the residents of Monash Lodge. It is always a great morning out and something a little bit different for our most loved members of our community.

Attended the local races on Saturday July 28 with our Mayor Anne Baker and her husband. I think Anne may have had a win or two. What a spectacular array of fashion from both the women and men. Some of the kids were decked out like you wouldn’t believe. Anne and I presented the sashes and prizes for most of the Fashions of the Field. Got to say I was feeling fairly under attired (if such a word), next to some of the truly magnificent dresses and hats. What a boost for our little town as there was also a back to Clermont school event going on as well. Our motels and hotels were absolutely full and I am sure our local businesses would like to say a big thank you to all those who patronised their businesses in one form or another. Travelled to Carmila after chairing a few meetings on Monday before leaving. Councillor Austen did the driving and for that I am sure he is grateful. Carmila is a small coastal town in our region and the hospitality shown to all members of Council was greatly appreciated. Tuesday we travelled to St Lawrence where we had the first of our monthly Statutory Meetings. In future we will now hold our statutory monthly meeting in a different town or community. A great opportunity for all members of council to meet as many people as we can, see and experience the diversity of our great region. Has everyone noticed that our town clock is now up and running on time. Big thanks to all those who have managed to get it on track.

On a sad note, Jack a resident of the Lodge passed away recently but I will always have some lovely memories of him. This is a part of life that sucks, but something that will come to all of us eventually.

That’s it for now. Until next time...Lyn

STAGING AGEING UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT IN CLERMONT Contributed by John Burnett on behalf of Belyando Enterprise Network Inc.

As the new Queensland Health high-care facility at Clermont Hospital nears completion, Belyando Enterprise Network Inc (BENI) has launched a community survey to promote discussion on the future for retirement and ageing in Clermont and district. With professional assistance from Renee Wall of Clermont based Wall Planning & Environmental Consulting, BENI has funded preliminary work to examine the options for Clermont to become the “Retirement Hub for Central Queensland”. Feasibility studies have investigated numerous sites in Clermont that may be suitable for establishing retirement living communities into the future, with the immediate option of deciding the future plan for Monash Lodge. BENI Chairman, John Burnett, commended the work of Monash Lodge Inc and Queensland Health on the transition of the Monash Lodge residents to the new hospital-based “home” in the near future. However, this will only provide the same number of high care positions that presently exist in our community, with no extra facilities for additional care or people experiencing dementia. This also leaves the future role of Monash Lodge up in the air, as Queensland Health will no longer continue to operate the facility. Currently, Isaac Regional Council owns the building in trust for the community. Monash Lodge Inc is responsible for structural and other maintenance and operations of the facility which was built by the Clermont community in 1990 with funds raised by the local community and financial assistance from the Commonwealth. Monash Lodge sits on crown land held by the State as a reserve designated for aged care purposes. “It is most important that the community becomes actively involved in deciding on the future direction for this facility,” said John Burnett. “Originally, it was designed as a hostel for lower care residents requiring supported living. Could it be returned to this role, and how could that be managed and funded? “Demographic studies commissioned by BENI indicate that the over 65 age group in communities like Clermont will increase by about 89% over the next 20 years. This figure will be much higher in the younger mining towns like Moranbah, Dysart, Middlemount and Tieri.


“If the community desires, Clermont is well positioned to establish a model to improve the lifestyle opportunities for this ageing population and to strengthen the business sector of our town,” John explained. “There are different levels to consider in the ageing process for our community. Some residents may wish to remain in their own home for as long as possible. Others may prefer to move to a community of likeminded people for company and support after retirement, with a base to return to while travelling and fulfilling their “bucket list”. This option is presently only available by leaving our home community, but could be achieved locally if there was enough “desire” from community and their families. “With the likely development of Adani, Vitrinite, and other potential new mines in our region, an opportunity may soon exist to restructure housing options in our town. Rather than developing new housing estates to accommodate new families, a purpose built ‘lifestyle community’ incorporating what is great about Clermont already may be achievable,” John added. Wall Planning & Environmental Consulting together with Jellis Creative have worked with BENI to develop a survey for residents to complete, to assist in providing base information on future direction of ageing in Clermont. Renee Wall will be collecting and collating the surveys, and information meetings are planned for key stakeholder groups around the district. This process started last week with a lively discussion at Clermont CWA, and it is anticipated to continue through September. “It is imperative we get as many opinions as possible, not just from those nearing retirement, as decisions made now will continue to impact on our community in 20 years’ time!” Renee emphasised. “Surveys can be collected and returned to the Wall Planning office in the arcade, Clermont Pharmacy, or can be completed on line. Go to Further information on the future possibilities will be discussed as we receive community input. Focus groups will then develop viable options and consider funding opportunities. Our group will be working closely with Monash Lodge Inc., Isaac Regional Council, and other key stakeholders, but ultimately this process must reflect the aspirations of the community. Please play your part in developing this vision!” For further information please contact: John Burnett Ph: 0438 588 581, Renee Wall - Ph: 0488 552 530 Jan Burnett - Ph: 0429 835 175

Discover the hidden treasures a book can hold as some of Australia’s top children’s books burst into life at Isaac libraries during Book Week.

A celebration of Australian Children’s literature, Book Week is an initiative of The Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) and aims to bring children and books together.

For more details visit, call 1300 ISAACS (1300 472 227) or visit your local library.

Mayor Anne Baker said Isaac Libraries will host special story time events from August 20 to 24 exploring this year’s book week theme, Find your Treasure. “Book Week is a celebration of reading and quality Australian literature,” Mayor Baker said. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for children to dress up as their favourite book character and to share their bestloved books with others.” Each year schools, authors, libraries and children join in a range of activities and events designed to inspire children to read and discover new stories and adventures. “The theme for 2018 is Find Your Treasure and encourages children to go on an adventure and discover all there is to love about books in a fun and interactive way. “I encourage families to get involved and visit their local Isaac library during Book Week to participate in one of the special story time sessions,” Mayor Baker said. The CBCA selects a shortlist of titles across six categories each year and the 2018 Book of the Year winners will be announced on Friday August 17.

In loving memory of Mitchell Stewart Wienert Left us on August 11, 2017 Aged 23 years To lose someone so special is really hard to bear It hardly seems believable that you’re no longer there. You left us far too early, before your time, it seems And now you’ll never have the chance to fulfill all those dreams. However hard it is though , We’ll take comfort in the thought of all the memories we have and the happiness you brought. You always lived life to the full But ours won’t be the same until the day when we can see your smiling face again.

We love and miss you deeply. Love Dad, Mum, Nan and extended families.
