CLERMONT RAG FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 14, 2018

TAKE OFF ON AN OUT OF THIS WORLD OUTDOOR ADVENTURE A free under-the-stars production packed with space-aged belly laughs are set to charm audiences as it returns to Isaac with a sequel.

Astronomical 2 will take off on its out-of-thisworld outdoor adventures at the Bottom Oval, Clermont Sportsgrounds, Clermont on Wednesday, October 17, starting from 6.30pm:

The NQ Starshine and Full Throttle Theatre Company have teamed up to bring seven outdoor shows of Astronomical 2 to Isaac in September and October.

To give everyone a chance to experience looking through six large computer controlled telescopes, attendance is limited.

The audience will be guided through the history of the universe as seen through the eyes of Nicholas Copernicus, Edwin Hubble and others. Mayor Anne Baker said Isaac Regional Council supports diverse arts and cultural events across the region. “Delivering belly laughs as it explores the universe, the audience participates by looking at the various astronomical wonders through large computer controlled telescopes,” Mayor Baker said. “The magical cast will lead the audience through space with nuggets of science intermixed with the historical twists and turns from the characters’ perspectives. “The play is an outdoor production, where the sky is dark and the planets beckon.”

Landscaping has commenced and is due for completion soon.

Furniture has been ordered and we are waiting on delivery.

Finishing aesthetic touches for the building are being carried out as this edition goes to print.

Finalisation of room allocations are being thoroughly discussed with current residents and their families / significant others.

Following thorough consultation, the management team have worked closely with all staffing streams (e.g. Nursing, Operational Services and Administration) and have extensive contingencies in place for the move to proceed as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.

Excitement is in the air to see how this long planned for project will finally come to fruition for the Clermont Community. Watch this space for more information as the official opening is due soon.


CR LYN’S COLUMN “Another busy fortnight. However I had a However we are very fortunate to have such a few days off and travelled to Brisbane to compassionate Director of see my family. It was almost getting to the stage of having withdrawals as I had not seen them for so long. Did all the usual mother/grandmother activities. Movies, shopping, lunch, shopping. Almost felt a bit guilty saying that I had a splurge in Brisbane shopping, but as I do the majority of my shopping locally I guess it is OK to have a blow out occasionally. I have a daughter who absolutely hates shopping but thank goodness the grand daughter makes up for her. Actually had to get a bigger suitcase to come home with. Definitely not carry on luggage for the flight home. Fairly big week last week for meetings. Meetings are all very well so long as something is achieved and you learn from them. Went to the Springtime Cent Sale at the Anglican Church Hall. Just as well it is a great social afternoon with a great afternoon tea because, you guessed it - not one prize. Had a great time though and it was especially fun with the puzzle and problem pages that everyone had on their tables. Makes the old brain do a bit of work. Big thank you once again to our work camp fellows who have done a great job on the lagoon and other areas within our town.

Nursing (Jan) at the Clermont Hospital who has repeatedly encouraged all residents and their families to meet and chat with her and relay any concerns they may have to her and knowing Jan she would do her very best to ‘sort it’. Felt very privileged to have had a walk through the new building and it actually made a tear come to my eye as it was so much more than I had expected. It was wonderful. Lets hope for lots of registrations to participate in the Clermont to Capella Horse ride and Talent Show on this Friday and the Horse Sports on Saturday. If you can, get behind this worthy cause and support the Clermont and Capella Chaplaincy. You all know my reluctance around horses so I am fairly sure you won’t see me on a horse but I will be joining the riders for lunch on Friday. This Saturday also sees the opening of Ornabellas new Giftware & Wellness Store. I hope to see as many people as possible come and lend their support to Brooke and her staff as any new business for our mighty town of Clermont is worth getting excited about.

Just a reminder to any not-for-profit organisations who could use some assistance from the work camp fellows, just pop in and see me or give me a call.

Summer is definitely on its way as Axel has started to eat only once or twice a day. During he winter he grazes and is very hard to fill. He is very fortunate that for all that he does eat he doesn’t show it. Could have something to do with all the walks he is taken on.

Still waiting for the big wet to hit. I know the old saying is that there has never been a drought that has not been broken, but it is a right pain to think we are still waiting for the stuff to fall out of the sky.

Have to admit that when I am buggered I drive and he runs beside the vehicle. The only problem with that is that the only exercise I get is my right foot on the accelerator.

Our residents at Monash Lodge are getting very close to making the transition to their new home. Exciting for some, little bit scary for some and a little bit of reluctance for change from others.

Until next time......Lyn”

ROAD PROJECT RESTORES ROADS AND ENERGISES ECONOMY

A Council-contractor has assisted in energising the regional economy by spedning more thatn $1.14 million in Isaac as part of a $4 million road works project. The driving force behind the restoration and reconstruction of 65km of road across 94 sections. Isaac Regional Council contractor Epoca Constructions conducted the five-month project by restoring unsealed roads, reconstructing sealed roads and fixed drainage structures.

“More than 30 employees and subcontractors were involved in the delivery of the contracted work,” she said. “They have spent nearly 30 per cent locally and we thank the contractors for spending local and energising our economy. “Road works are always an important part of a local government’s schedule and natural disasters can place a massive burden on ratepayers.”

Five road teams were dispatched around Clermont, Middlemount, Dysart, Moranbah, St Lawrence and Glenden between February and June.

The total project used 15km of gravel re-sheeting and 19km of heavy formation grading was completed in addition to sections of seal restoration and concrete repairs.

Mayor Anne Baker said the restoration of Isaac’s essential public assets are crucial to ensuring the region’s economic lifeblood continues to beat.

Mayor Baker said the program is extremely important to our future and for our mining, cattle, transport and tourism industries. For an update on road programs, visit www.isaac.qld.gov.au for more information.


IN STEP WITH COMMUNITY ON CAPELLA ST FOOTPATH Clermont business operators and local residents are being invited to have their say on proposed improvements to the footpath in Capella Street. Improvements to the footpath between Herschel and Sirius streets are planned as part of Council’s 201819 Capital Works program, funded under the State Government’s Works For Queensland program. Mayor Anne Baker said the footpath upgrade would help to improve pedestrian safety in Capella St. “Capella St is the commercial centre of Clermont. Upgrading the condition of the footpath will enhance the amenity of this precinct and reduce the likelihood of slips, trips and falls,” she said. “We are also committed to minimising disruption and maintaining access to Capella St businesses while these planned improvements occur.”

Mayor Baker said she encouraged the Clermont community to have a say on the project by providing feedback over the coming weeks. “We want to have a conversation with Capella St business operators and the community to ensure we capture and address, as much as possible, any concerns they may have,” she said. “This is Clermont’s town centre and we want community buy-in on the proposed outcomes, including issues such as the type of finish applied to new sections of footpath, within the limitations of the project budget.” People can provide feedback by completing an online survey about the project on Council’s website or by following the link: www.surveymonkey.com/r/RGT79V8 Printed surveys are also available from Council’s Clermont Office and Library.

WHAT IS AN RII CONVERSION? Submitted by Lou Power The Australian Government in 2011 decided to harmonise the construction industry and ticketing laws to come into full effect from January 1, 2012. The Federal Government requested that all states were to follow the mining industry system and have earth moving tickets and various other training units become competency based in the construction industry. This meant the regulator (WHSQ) compliance for people to “hold tickets” were no longer to regulate or enforce this system.

This is how your employer or prospective employer ensures you are compliant prior to starting employment or, if already employed, by requesting that you convert your expired tickets to the Resource and Infrastructure Industry RII system. Previously, tickets from training completed were issued and are commonly called: Old style tickets Old OHS tickets – “the pale blue & white ones” Old OHS tickets. – “the yellow and blue ones with the construction picture on the front”

The responsibility and duty of care is on behalf of the employer or contractor making it the same responsibility the mining companies provide and require from their workers or operators. An overhaul of the high risk licencing system has been revamped as well. Harmonisation means responsibility not requirement. For example, a car seat belt won’t stop you having an accident but is your safety system in the event of an accident. Competency statements of attainment are your seat belt in this scenario by the way you are practicing, learning how to drive/operate the machine and have an overall understanding of safe operation.

This photo is an example of the Old Style/expired tickets that were once regulated by Occupational Health and Safety (WHSQ) under the previous system.
