Personally Speaking

By Susannah Friis with Susannah Friis

With four community publications, we are all about community here at Local News Publications. We love nothing more than hearing that new groups have started up from seeds planted by articles in our publications, as has happened recently. We hear feedback that memberships at service groups and social clubs are increasing, and we couldn’t be happier. Without active communities, and thereby, active community participants, we would all be poorer in spirit and miss out on so many wonderful connections. Being part of a community group is a win-win situation. You enjoy outings, new friendships and the sense of belonging that comes with being part of a group. Others benefit by your friendship and input and, in most cases, the world community benefits by fundraising efforts and the raising of awareness of so many ways we can help our fellow man. I have been invited to quite a lot of clubs and groups to talk about the work of Destiny Rescue and our trip to Thailand, and I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting and getting to know many residents. One thing I notice is that often people in these groups are members of multiple groups, and I see familiar faces everywhere I go. People who have a heart to help their fellow man are often so generous with their time and energy that they participate in two or even three clubs. Far from seeing it as burden or something they ‘should’ do, these people are committed and dedicated to seeing change, locally and globally. I am constantly encouraged, not only by people’s response to what I share, but by the generosity, both financially and in the warm welcome I receive, and the willingness to hear the cold hard facts about issues that are going on around the world. People who are in these clubs and groups are people who are willing to face the injustices and, often evil, actions of others, head on. They are people who firmly, and rightly, believe that a difference is a difference, no matter the size. And the fact is, we can all make a difference. Maybe you’ll make a difference to a friend in a club who is dealing with loss, or hardship. Maybe you’ll relieve a burden from another by putting your hand up to be on the committee. Maybe you’ll make a difference by offering to drive someone to and fro from activities and outings. Maybe you’ll be on the stall to raise funds for fresh drinking water in Africa. Or buy some jewellery that a Destiny Rescue girl made. Or donate some towels for Giving with Love. It all makes a difference. But you have to be where the action is. Why not think about joining a service group? Or start a special interest group yourself. It could be just the thing someone else is looking for.

Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser a success said Debra. “Big thanks go out to Gail Page, Jenna and staff from the various units of Education Qld, Coorparoo Precinct; Ashleigh Page and staff at Coles State Office; Kate Annable, staff and management at Sicame Australia; and Daniel Hackier and staff at Icon-Septech. “So many wonderful people are affected by cancer, it does not discriminate. It challenges all those affected and their loved ones. I am extremely passionate about supporting the Cancer Council and I plan to continue raising funds in future.” Debra would also like to thank DC’s Cafe for their support and impeccable service on the day. Pictured from left to right: Kristy Karpowicz, Rachelle Page and Debra Page After local resident, Debra Page, lost her friend Jenna Peters at just 31 years old to brain cancer in 2011, she decided to support the work of the Cancer Council and raise funds by participating in Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. Last years event raised $2400 and Debra was thrilled that this year, the fundraising total was more than doubled, raising $5540. With the support of friends and family who hosted mini morning teas at their places of work, Debra also used the power of social media to raise awareness and funds. “I would really like to give a special mention to some extremely dear family and friends, who raised large sums of money hosting mini morning teas at their workplace,”

By Dr Paul Holliday

Do you snore? Is your life at risk?

Snoring is the result of the airway being constricted by the soft tissues of the mouth and throat falling backwards during sleep. When this happens, the brain tries to reflexively maintain the full air flow needed by the body and so forces air through the constricted airway space faster, causing vibration of the tissues and therefore that snoring noise. Snoring is a social problem for your partner and family. It can occur in both children and adults. It can also be an indicator of more sinister medical problems. Simple snoring can sometimes be fixed with a simple oral appliance. The danger is that if the blockage becomes total then the brain is starved of oxygen and to survive, forces you to jolt awake and gasp a breath of air. This can happen many times in a night and is called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). This often leads to increased blood pressure and may cause heart problems or stroke. You most certainly will be grumpy at times and feel lethargic during the day. When OSA is left untreated it can lead to a decreased life expectancy (along with the increased medical problems). If your child suffers from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea then they may have growth and development problems especially with their teeth, jaws and mouth or nose. Sometimes this lack of enough air every night can make children irritable and have difficulty concentrating in school. It is something you should get looked at as soon as you see them having difficulty breathing. There have been some studies that show a child’s IQ improves when the sleep breathing problem has been solved. What can be done? The first action to take is to see us for a consultation to diagnose the severity and possibly refer you to one of the local sleep assessment clinics. The important thing is to see what kind of apnoea you or your child has (there are several types). The sleep assessment involves being monitored while you are asleep to see how many episodes of apnoea and what kind of apnoea is present. The treatment may involve CPAP (which means continuous positive airway pressure). This is a machine that forces air into your airway. Many people find this uncomfortable and do not wear the CPAP every night. If you are suitable for a simple oral appliance, we will advise the best type for you. At Lakedental we are now using the latest Somnodent MAS appliance that is proving successful and is being well accepted. If you are worried about sleep apnoea or snoring give the friendly team at Lakedental a call on 3879 8999.

Local figure skater wins silver medal in USA The Skate Dallas competition held earlier this year in Texas, attracted a huge field of 1,000 skaters from all over the USA with Taylor as the sole Australian representative. The local teen skated two strong programmes, earning high technical marks from the US judges. Taylor is ranked fourth in Australia, and, at 17 years of age, is a seasoned veteran of international competition, with recent success at the DenkovaStaviski Cup in Sofia, Bulgaria. From her training base in Dallas, Taylor will continue working hard to prepare for a major selection event in Brisbane this month. On offer will be a highly sought after place at an International Skating Union (ISU) Junior Grand Prix later in the year. Taylor previously won selection to a Junior Grand Prix in Riga, Latvia, in 2011. Taylor’s impressive portfolio also includes touring Australia with Dutch “Waltz King”, Andre Rieu, in his “A Romantic Night in Vienna” World Stadium concerts. Taylor is the youngest female skater to be chosen. She was also awarded the Morgan Innes Skating Scholarship (for skating potential) in 2008. In 2011, Taylor scored a feature part as Tinkerbell in the support act for Disney on Ice. With the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, in her sights, Taylor is looking to earn selection to the World Championships in 2014. It is an important milestone on the long and demanding road to the Olympics. With her determination, passion for skating, and love of competing, she will be giving it her all.

Several members of the Friends of the Parks have been preparing their park area ready for The Heritage Bank 2013 Park and Garden Competition with judging to be held in September. A member of the Friends of the Parks group, Mrs Maxine Kelleher has volunteered her time every month as group leader in Hillbrook Village since the groups inception over 15 years ago. A valuable contribution has been made by the group in Hillbrook with maintaining the parks to keep them clear of rubbish, removing fallen branches and mulching the gardens. Maxine was one of the first Group Leaders to volunteer her time when Delfin first established the Friends of the Parks, originally named the Park Rangers. Maxine, along with Trevor and Jan, are the only remaining members of the group with the park on Mulgrave being a real credit to them. The Forest Lake Area Garden Group is one of the longest running community clubs in Forest Lake. The monthly meetings are now held at Community House but when the club was first formed, the meeting was held in members’ homes. Mrs Kelleher has served on the committee of the Garden Club, was co-President for two years before taking on the role of President for five years. The Village Park category of the Garden Competition is open to any resident who maintains an area of council property near their home. Friends of the Parks members are not always available to join a monthly working bee but with their enjoyment of gardening they maintain a park or garden area near their home. Entry forms for The Heritage Bank 2013 Park and Garden Competition are available at the Heritage Bank, Forest Lake. Other categories included in the competition are, Residential, Cottage, Water Wise and Retirement Village Garden. For further information contact Dawn 3271 1005 or Lorraine 3879 6210.

Since the story in the June edition of The Lake News, local resident Sue Gibbens has been delighted by the response and interest in the formation of a crochet group. It has been decided that the group will join the current craft group that meets at Settlers Retirement Village in High Street. Although the craft group meets every second week, those interested in the crochet group will be pleased to know it will be available on a weekly basis from 10am. Settlers Retirement Village will provide tea and coffee and have also made the generous commitment to supply the wool and hooks as well as any other items that the group may need to make blankets for those in need of some warmth this winter. Meeting in the community room each Thursday from 10am onwards, all who are keen to learn some new crochet techniques are encouraged to come along and enjoy, not only brushing up on or learning new skills, but the friendship of others in our community. For more information and details, please contact Sue on 3279 9561 or Settlers on 3807 3930.

Brendan Rule (representing the Salvation Army), Kathy Williams (School Chaplain) and School Captains, Liam Portelli and Paris Knapp. Recently, Grand Avenue State School held a Gold Coin Donation for the Salvation Army. Students were invited to wear an item of red clothing with their uniform and bring in a gold coin to help the “Salvos.” This organization helps a huge number of people in many different situations in our community. They work with the homeless, help people who are victims of abuse or crime and support for those just a bit down on their luck. There is always a friendly face to talk to or a warm place to go. They help trace missing or runaway kids and reunite them with their families. So much of their hard work goes unnoticed behind the scenes but we know they are always there to help us. We were very happy to donate to this very worthwhile cause and know that every cent will go to help someone in need. The total amount raised was $500 through the efforts of the Student Council co-ordinated by Chaplain Kathy. Thank you to the Westpac Branch at Forest Lake for their assistance.

MULTI AWARD WINNING SALON

All of our youth members have been enjoying the great outdoors. This term our Joey Scouts have completed their Environment Challenge badge; one of four challenge badges that make up the Joey Scout Participation Scheme. Now they’re working on their Adventure Challenge badge; beginning with a bear hunt at Mt Coot-tha. The Joeys followed the paw prints left by a run-away teddy bear, while singing the song “We’re going on a bear hunt” until they found teddy’s secret lair. The Cub Scouts began the term with an overnight camp at Toohey Mountain Scout Den where they put their tracking skills to use following trails through Toohey Forest and learning how to build emergency shelters in the bush. At night the Cubs cooked dinner on the camp fire followed by roasted marshmellows and camp fire songs. The Scouts participated in a district camp in May. Held at Karingal Scout Camp Site near Mount Cotton, Richlands joined scouts from four other groups in our district to test their campcraft skills. I’m pleased to say our Richlands Scouts performed well. Activities included camp site construction, first aid, raft building, a lantern stalk, camp fire skits and building a 50 metre long monkey bridge. This term the Scouts welcomed Thenga, who has already achieved his Scoutcraft badge. Lucas completed his Pioneer Coord and Nicholas was sworn in as Patrol Leader. And the Scouts said farewell to Patrick who has moved up to Venture Scouts, where he will be met with a new range of challenges. Meanwhile, our small but growing Venturer Unit has been working hard too. Tamika completed her Venturer Skills badge and has begun work on her Venturer Award. The Group provides fun and adventurous activities for young people (both boys and girls) from ages 6 to 17. The Group is divided into four sections catering for different age groups. Each section meets regularly at the St Hugh’s Anglican Church, 105 Poinsettia St Inala. Please contact Geoff Hunt on 0414 460 402 for more details. Leaders wanted. Did you enjoy scouting as a youth? We rely on the support of the local community and are currently looking for extra leaders to help grow the group. Contact Geoff on the above number if you are interested.

Page 14 - July 2013 - The Lake News

I have seen an unusual number of fleas about in the last couple of months. Pet owners need to make sure they have good flea control and understand fleas before summer starts when they are normally worse. Fleas are tiny dark brown parasitic insects that infest the coat and skin of pets. They have an amazing skill that allows them to jump up to 150 times their own length. That’s like a human jumping over 300 metres. Their remarkable jumping skills allow them to transmit easily between hosts and the surrounding environment. One of the first signs of a flea infestation is that your pet will be scratching and seem quite irritated. On closer examination, you could find adult fleas in the coat or at the base of the fur on the skin. You may even find flea dirt that looks like small black specks of grit, similar to finely ground pepper. This is actually digested dried blood. All of this can be hard to see, so we need to have a good look. One adult flea can multiply to thousands in only 30 days producing a lot of flea eggs that can remain dormant for astonishingly long periods of time under a variety of conditions in your garden, carpet and furniture until hatching, Fleas are the number one cause of skin disease in pets and can cause problems ranging from simple itchiness to weeping sores, scaly skin and a strong smell. Sometimes it only takes one bite in sensitive pets to start the dermatitis off. How do you protect your pet from fleas? Smelly and potentially toxic chemicals that were sprayed about or soaked into your pets coat are a thing of the past and now we can enjoy more recent innovations. Treatment of your pet with a monthly tablet or spot on is normally all that is needed. Selecting the right product the first time is important, so always ask you veterinary clinic for advice. Dermatitis can be complicated and infections develop quickly so some initial treatment to settle the damage down may be needed.


Forest Lake National Seniors By Julie Baldwin Branch Update Next meeting to be held at Settlers Village, 41 High St, Forest Lake is Wednesday 10 July.

Thursday 16 May saw a bright and cheery group of 29 travellers head off to Samford District Historical Museum for the morning. We were greeted by a costumed, smiling group of enthusiastic volunteers and invited in to partake of a lovely morning tea. During morning tea we received a surprise visit from a very realistic swagman who recited poetry and told a few yarns, to everyone’s delight. Next was an extraordinary and informative demonstration of the many techniques of timber logging and the important use of these timbers for hut and fence building in the early days of settlement. Everyone marvelled at the skills of the men. We were also shown corn shelling and crushing. Over to the Blacksmiths for a fiery demonstration of the skills of the Smithy. The School bell rang and we students lined up and marched into the classroom where Miss Margaret took us through mental arithmetic, writing our answers on our

slates, and learning our abc’s. A couple of naughty boys kept us in class a bit too long and we ran out of time to have a really good tour of the excellent displays which included relocated railway stations, slab huts, farm machinery, dairy shed and many more. We will have to return for another visit and could easily spend hours going through the displays. Our group then travelled to Broncos Leagues Club for a super buffet lunch. Many of our members attended Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea held in May at Settlers Village to raise funds for Cancer Research. Another event and something for the ladies was a fashion parade of Margot Mott Designs also held at Settlers Village in May. Guest speaker for our June meeting was Peter Alyward from the Public Trustees Office. Peter’s talk focused on Wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney and Advanced Health Directives. He covered the history and services of The Public Trustee. Public Trustee services are available through the State. Many questions were asked and Peter offered very helpful answers. Brochures were available for members and guests to take away from the meeting. Coming up on our calendar for members and friends is a guest speaker at 10th July Branch Meeting. The big mid-year event will be our Christmas in July lunch at St Bernards, Mt Tamborine on Thursday 18th July. Wednesday 11th September the Forest Lake National Seniors Branch AGM will be held commencing after a short Branch General Meeting.

Hello Readers

“In an increasingly global and competitive world, quality education has become more important than ever. These awards recognise the teaching profession and the significant role it plays.” St John’s Anglican College is proud to have teachers of Kelly’s calibre setting the foundation of the Early Years program. Kelly was nominated by the parents of her 2012 Prep students for her outstanding contribution to Early Years education. Our whole school community congratulates Kelly on this wonderful achievement.

Members of St John’s Anglican College community are celebrating with St John’s Prep teacher, Kelly McBurnie who received a NEiTA 2012 ASG National Teaching Award. Selected from more than 1350 nominations around Australia, Kelly is one of only 12 selected teachers to receive the award for her outstanding contribution to education. Now in its 20th year, the National Excellence in Teaching Awards (NEiTA) program, supported by the Australian Scholarships Group (ASG), gives communities the opportunity to formally thank their hard-working and inspirational educators and leaders. Kelly was selected for the award for achieving outstanding results in teaching literacy and numeracy. At a special awards presentation in Melbourne on 31 May 2013, NEiTA and ASG congratulated Kelly for her outstanding work. NEiTA chairman Terry O’Connell said:

Kelly said “It is an honour to receive this award and to be recognised by the parent community in such a way. I am fortunate to work with a team of outstanding educators who together are producing outstanding results for students of all abilities.” NEiTA is Australia’s only national, community-centred teaching awards program that gives Australian parents and grandparents, secondary student councils, school boards/ councils, parent associations, committees of management and community organisations the opportunity to nominate their inspirational teachers. If you would like to experience teaching excellence in action, please call 3372 0113 for your personalised tour or you can attend our next Open Day, Saturday 17 August.

On Saturday 1 June 2013 the South West Progress Association hosted the 2013 Community and Queensland Day Awards at an awards ceremony at the Lions Soccer Club. These awards are held annually to recognise volunteers that give their time in support of community organisations and groups within the community. I was honoured to be able to support and present these awards with local Councillor Milton Dick. The Community and Queensland Day Awards are an important way of recognising the invaluable efforts of volunteers in our community. The award recipients have contributed their own time, volunteering through different community projects and initiatives across the Inala electorate. It was a great day to recognise and thank the generosity of these locals and their selfless contribution to our community. This year a number of people from the Forest Lake Community received awards for their volunteering efforts. Jack and Irene Dunning (pictured) were recognised for their many years of service to Lions Clubs International. Irene is also a past District Governor and the first female District Governor in Q3 District. Heather Short was honoured for over twenty years of service to the Lions Clubs International and has also been a Q3 District Governor. Del Greenway was recognised for her years of service with Scouting and Lions Clubs International. Del was recently presented with her 15 years leadership award by Scouting Australia. I congratulate all the 14 award recipients for their dedication and many years of service which are truly appreciated by the greater community.

STATE MEMBER FOR ALGESTER The inaugural Queensland Day Festival has gone off with a bang...literally. The event, hosted by the Algester/Parkinson Lions and the Algester Electorate Office, saw approximately 2000 local residents visit Pallara. Festival-goers enjoyed cannon displays by the Victoria Barracks Historical Society, acts by local performers including a stirring rendition of the National Anthem by local star Liz Conde and a visit by the fire brigade and even some Police puppies. Residents had the chance to be strapped into an F-111 aircraft capsule from the RAAF Amberley Aviation Heritage Centre, see firsthand a massive bushmaster vehicle provided by the Royal Australian Regiment before taking the controls of an explosives detector robot provided by the 2nd Combat Engineer Regiment. The festival marked the end of week-long celebrations in honour of Queensland’s separation from New South Wales in 1859. In keeping with the Queensland theme, I would like to take this opportunity to encourage residents to get involved with the Queensland Plan. The State Government wants to know Queenslanders’ vision for Queensland 30 years from now, and this is your chance have a voice. At the Mackay summit earlier this year, six questions were devised by the delegates. Those six questions are: • In the context of living in the community, how do we move our focus from me to we? • How do we create and foster an education culture that teaches skills and values to meet global challenges and optimise regional strengths? • How do we empower and educate individuals, communities and institutions to embrace responsibility for an active and healthy lifestyle? • How do we structure our economy to ensure our children inherit a resilient future? • How do we strengthen our economic future and achieve sustainable landscapes? • How do we attract and retain the brightest minds and ideas where they are most needed and capitalise on global opportunities? I encourage residents to head to www.queenslandplan.qld. gov.au/get-involved/have-your-say/index.html to complete the survey online, or email my office with your responses.

Date saver for a day of family fun The Grand Avenue State School combined markets and fete event will be held on Sunday 15 Semptember. Markets from 8am - 3pm Rides from 9.30am - 2.30pm Lots of rides, food, market stalls and showbags. Plently of local entertainment and a great day out for the entire family! Don’t miss out.

Probus Club Update by Marge Breitenbach

It was a privilege to have the Editor of The Lake News, Susannah Friis, as our guest speaker. It was a decade ago that her father offered us the same opportunity. Her topic was the aid organisation Destiny Rescue. Accompanied by her daughter, Susannah visited Thailand where the organisation has its headquarters. An Australian, Tony Kerwin, started this rescue operation ten years ago when a friend was offered a child for sale. This humanitarian organisation rescues children who are sold into slavery. The statistics are alarming - 27 million children, more than the entire Australian population, are sold into slavery every year. Just think that every 26 seconds a child is sold! Susannah gave us some heart-rending examples of cases of victims, but what is vital is that the organisation grows and is given more support to save these innocent children. Once victims are taken into care, they are given medical attention, counselling as well as education to empower them to learn skills to be able to have a job and earn a living. Some girls are taught hairdressing, sewing and English as the Thai economy is based on tourism. It was a passionate delivery about a very tender subject. Thank you Susannah for bringing this organisation to our attention. More information can be obtained by going to www.destinyrescue.org. Our trip the following Tuesday was to the Donkey Farm owned by Heike Mack-Behle and family near Boonah. Heike delivered a very enthusiastic history of donkeys and informed us that there were French and even Irish donkeys and the largest breed was a mammoth donkey. Donkeys hate canines and one Darling Downs farmer, having lost 400 sheep in one year to dingoes, now uses two donkeys to guard his flock and has lost none since the arrival of the donkeys. Donkey Henry was used as a mascot when the Australian Army held its Trooping of Colour Ceremony and presented a banner to the Governor-General. Henry actually marched in time with the soldiers, was allowed in the Bar and was even saluted. A short stop was made at Bunruben Estate owned by David McMaugh where we tasted some wine. The property used to be part of Coochin Station where in 1920 the then Prince of Wales laid a foundation stone. When author Agatha Christie disappeared off the face of the earth, it was to Coochin Station where she went for some relaxation and planted a tree. Reluctant to leave our beautiful surroundings and the vino, it was off to lunch at Boonah and then home. It has been an interesting and enjoyable month being a Probian. Some more interesting trips lie ahead so why not come and join us if you are retired or semi-retired. There is still our Christmas in July function, a Green & Gold Trip, Prawn Farm etc... We meet second Tuesday of the month at 10 a.m. Forest Lake Hotel. Contact President Alan 3879 8183 or Membership guru Kevin 0408 933 561. See page 27 of this publication.


Forest Lake Lions Club update

Lions Hearing Aid Recycling Program (HARP) The manager of Australian Lions Recycle for Sight spectacles refurbishment centre at Redcliffe, Lion Margret Eaton was the guest speaker at our dinner meeting held on 22nd May. In her address, Margret said that whilst the recycling for sight has become a success story benefitting thousands of recipients in a number of developing countries, there is a great need for the supply of hearing aids for those unable to afford them. Hearing aids are not as common as spectacles and can be quite expensive. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that 278 million people worldwide have moderate to profound hearing loss in both ears. The current annual production of hearing aids is estimated to meet only 10% of the demand, leaving many, especially in the developing countries, with little or no access to any treatment for their hearing loss. Hearing impairment and deafness are serious disabilities which can create learning difficulties for children and adversely affect employment opportunities for adults. HARP enables Lions to provide affordable hearing aids for individuals with limited resources. HARP has hearing aid recycling centres in USA, Canada and Denmark. There is no such recycling centre yet in Australia. Until such time we establish a hearing aid refurbishment centre in Australia, we can keep on collecting used hearing aids and if required send them overseas for refurbishment. If you have used hearing aids please contact a Lions member. Lions Reading Action Program In 2012-2013, Lions International made it a priority to address the global illiteracy issue, by promoting early reading and improved access to education. Lions Club literacy promotion projects worldwide with over two million volunteer hours benefitted six million people to help improve their literacy skills. The program has been extended for another 10 years and it is hoped that at the end of that period, illiteracy rate worldwide will be significantly reduced. Lions Club of Forest Lake launched a project to collect children’s English books (suitable for children under 10 years) to be sent to overseas countries. They can be story books or general knowledge and topics on nature. Already we have collected several boxes of books and if you have any books in good condition suitable for children under 10 years, please contact one of our members. We hope to have a temporary collection centre at the Forest Lake village. Changing of the Guard The annual ‘change-over’ dinner of the Lions Club of Forest Lake was held on Tuesday 25th of June at the Forest Lake Tavern and a new committee for the year 2013-2014 was instated.

Convention will cater for all writers

If you are an avid writer, just a beginner or maybe looking to expand your skills and meet other like-minded fellow craftsmen, you’re invited to attend this convention. This is a first for Brisbane writers and aims to connect individuals and writing groups together face to face. “I’ve wanted an event like this for ages. Brisbane has so many brilliant writers in many writing groups who all possess different skills and ways of getting together,” says Convention co-ordinator Gillian Lloyd. “This will enable us to network and tap into all that knowledge and talent to help us become better writers.” The Writers Group Convention will enable local writers to find out how writers groups encourage and support their members. There will be speakers and plenty of opportunities to mingle, plus time to browse and contribute to the marketing table, while strengthening Brisbane’s network of writers. If you are a member of a writing group or looking to find one, this event is not to be missed. The Writers Group Convention will be held on Saturday July 27, 2013 at the Jagera Arts Centre, 121 Cordelia Street, South Brisbane from 12.30pm - 4.30pm. Cost $10.00 per person.

It’s now July, where has the year gone? Last month we bussed to Governors House Bardon. This is the official residence of the Queensland Governor, Her Excellency Ms Penelope Wensley AC. while she holds office. On our visit to the lovely home, we were greeted by the Volunteer Guides and the Governors’ Aide, then served morning tea. While touring through, we were given some history of the house which was built in 1864 as a private residence. Over its life, the house has changed owners a few times until 1911 when it was purchased by the Government as the permanent Government House. We also walked the lovely manicured grounds before thanking our guides for an enjoyable morning. This month we lunched at the Broncos Leagues Club. With some time to spare after our meal, some played the pokies while others just sat and relaxed with an ale or a glass of wine. Come 2.30pm we were all aboard the Concorde coach heading for home. Forest Lake 50+ Club meets the 3rd Friday of every month at the Queensland Lions Club, Richlands at 10.30am. New members are always welcome.

Mark Mackay is the Baptist pastor at Forest Lake and teaches at Malyon College. Recently, I started getting serious about losing some weight and getting fit. We have some great personal trainers in our church and they gave me some guidelines on how I can get in shape. However, after hearing what needs to be done (especially the exercise), my first thought was “Where do I fit this into my life?” The irony is that if I don’t make personal health and fitness a priority, the other things in my life will become much harder to do. For example, if I don’t manage my health, my capacity to do the work I love will be diminished – I won’t have the energy I need nor the longevity. Of course, the problem when we don’t get our own health in balance is that the same problem is often passed on to our family. It is a very common problem that unbalanced attitudes to health become generational. My family doesn’t have a good record with looking after ourselves, particularly when it comes to diet and I see many of those attitudes still coming through in me today. However, when we get personal health into balance, we can pass on a great legacy to our kids. If we show them that good nutrition and exercise are important, these become values that we can instil from a young age, giving them a better opportunity to fulfil their potential. This is not a modern issue. The Bible reminds us that getting our lives in balance is important. Indeed the whole book of Ecclesiastes is about the importance of finding balance and the futility of working so hard that we get out of balance - “What do people get for all the toil and anxious striving with which they labor under the sun?...All their days their work is grief and pain; even at night their minds do not rest. This too is meaningless. A person can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in their own toil. This too, I see, is from the hand of God, for without him, who can eat or find enjoyment?” (Ecclesiastes 2:22, 24-25) There are some simple steps we can take to make our health a priority – where possible, walk somewhere instead of driving, or start an exercise plan, or plan meals in advance to avoid unhealthy meals. These simple steps can be the first towards good health for ourselves and setting a healthy legacy for future generations.

The winter chills and winds are upon us as we warm ourselves for the winter weather. Some of the garden is now dormant or slow growing with the coolness however Camellias, Japonicas and the Snow Flakes are in full bloom to name a few. I must admit when driving around there are many homes with at least one Snow Flake showing a beautiful blanket of white flowers. A couple of tasks for the garden this month are: • Cymbidiums – apply a liquid fertilizer twice a month • Now is a good time to move plants growing in the wrong spot unless they are a winter flowering type • Citrus should be given a citrus fertilizer and spread evenly over the area covered by the leaf canopy and water in well. • Don’t over water your indoor plants. Once a week should be ample. • Frangipani – now that the leaves have dropped off, cuttings can be used for propagating if left to dry in the sun for a week or so. Our bus trip on Saturday 20 July is almost full. A couple of seats are available and if you would like to join us, contact Heather (phone 3879 2129) or John (3288 3131) for a flyer or further information. This trip we will be celebrating Christmas in July with an Unwind in the Vines tour. Morning Tea will be at the Rosevale Homestead where we will ‘stop and smell the roses’. This private garden overlooks picturesque Lake Samsonvale. Next stop is at the Ocean View Winery for a tour, tasting and our Christmas in July lunch. In the afternoon, historical sites and shops in Dayboro are on the agenda. Last month, our club enjoyed morning tea at Linda Hore’s home as she opened her garden for our members. Her garden is a local garden with mainly a sub-tropical theme and a large leopard tree under-planted with many bromeliads and ferns. The courtyard has an assortment of hanging baskets with various plants on display. What a meeting we had last month! Debbie Aitcheson from The Chilli Patch was our guest speaker and her topic for the night was ‘Cooking with Herbs’. Debbie made Basic Pesto, Curried Pumpkin Soup and Herb Butter and I must admit the pumpkin soup was yummy. Only wish I could cook like that. Now for something completely different – our guest speaker for this month will be Carolyn O’Neill giving a power point presentation on Wildlife Friendly Gardening. Another topic not to be missed and I hope you can join us for the meeting.

We are not fanatical gardeners, just friendly enthusiasts. Join us! Next meeting Tuesday July 9th, 2013. Forest Lake Community House, Alpine Place

The Lake News - July 2013 - Page 25


From the desk of Angela Owen-Taylor Parkinson Ward Councillor

A big congratulations is due to Forest Lake Rugby Union (Wasps) in hosting the State Rugby Union Carnival at the Brisbane City Council Forest Lake District Junior Sporting Facility on the weekend of 22 and 23 June, showcasing our great area. It was a pleasure to support this key Queensland sports event held in Parkinson Ward and present awards to so many young achievers. Congratulations on the efforts of the Club and all teams and players, as well as visiting club officials. I recently announced that following successful funding through the Parkinson Ward Lord Mayor’s Suburban Initiative Fund, a performance by Samantha Jade – 2012 Winner of the X-Factor - will be the highlight act of the Calamvale Carnival on 27 July at Calamvale Community College. I encourage not only the young people in our community but all those interested to utilise the opportunity to enjoy free entry to a concert by one of Australia’s growing talents. As we enter a new financial year, the Lord Mayor Suburban initiative Fund has reopened. While there is limited funding available, I encourage our not-for-profit groups to contact me with ideas on their local projects which could enhance and benefit our community that may be eligible for funding support. You can find out more by visiting my website at www.angelaowentaylor.com.au/OurCommunity/Grants/ LordMayorsSuburbanInitiativeFund. The 12 June saw the handing down of the 2013-14 Brisbane City Council Budget with a number of projects proposed for our local area which I anticipate will be well received by residents. I have successfully secured continued funding of Council’s weed maintenance program of the lake, a play equipment upgrade at Blue Water Circuit Forest Lake, road improvements to Stapylton Road between Wadeville Street and the Logan Motorway and the continued support of the Parkinson Ward Multicultural and Dragon Boat Festival in the Council’s Festivals Program. Work to improve Stapylton Road is the next extension of the Blunder Road corridor and aims to ensure better traffic flows and reduce congestion around the entrance to Heathwood and Sanctuary Pocket. It is anticipated this work will deliver better access for Doolandella, Forest Lake, Heathwood and Pallara residents to the Logan Motorway. To keep up with the latest Parkinson Ward news, sign up to my ENewsletter at www.angelaowentaylor.com.au.

Gardening made easy, no matter how much space you have!

After 30 years of perfecting his methods, Mel Bartholomew’s how to book shows you how to grow an abundance of produce in just one small square metre space. With square metre gardening, there’s no need to worry about weeds and fertilisers, no back breaking digging and a proven 10 minutes a day method.
