At every golf day during the year, the appointed sheriff at Forest Lake Social Golf Club makes it his business to lay fines on all players for misdemeanours performed voluntarily or not. Varying from abusing ones golf clubs, inappropriate behaviour, failing to score correctly, to bad behaviour, inappropriate clothing, not wearing club shirts, and anything else than can be made up to constitute a fine (minimum of a gold coin). The sad thing is the players are encouraged to “dob” in the playing partners. No one is excluded from the sheriffs collection tin. The good from all the tongue-in-cheek accusations and fines, is that the collection is again donated to a very worthwhile cause – the Perinatal Research Centre at the Royal Brisbane and Womens Hospital. The collection last year was $335 and was presented this year by the club secretary Pat Ayling to Professor Paul Colditz. Pat was warmly greeted and the cheque most gratefully received as every dollar goes towards the continuing research; in this instance, the amount donated is half the cost of an MRI scan. This year, the sheriff is committed to raising twice the amount for this worthy cause and is certainly already on his way to achieving the total.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s a good time to reflect on mothering and the role of mothers in our society and communities. Sadly, for many the relationship with their mother is not an easy or pleasant one. I’ve been fortunate to have had a steady, loving, supportive relationship with mine, and because of this, my heart breaks for those who don’t. I was chatting about mothers with some friends the other day, and out of the conversation came a recognition for the need for mothering types of relationships, for all of us but more so if our relationship with our mother is not the best. In the street I spent my teenage years, I had a few mothers. They were women who offered a different perspective than my own mother, and who were a little removed emotionally from me. Because they weren’t as emotionally invested in me as my own mother, they could perhaps see things from another angle and give unique insight. I will always be thankful for those who took an interest in me as a growing young woman and for the time they spent listening to me and my teenage angst, most of which was unwarranted, mind you! During the conversation with my friends, I said the words “we need to embrace universal motherhood”. We all chuckled at the slightly ‘hippy’ turn of phrase but it’s true, we need to be ‘mothering’ one another. Let’s get a definition of what it means to ‘mother’ someone. According to my trusty dictionary it means to look after, care for, take care of, nurse, protect, tend, raise, rear, pamper, coddle, cosset, fuss over. So, really, mothering shouldn’t just be left to mothers, or even women. Mothering should be what we all do for everyone. As adults, we don’t need ‘mothering’ all the time but there are times we need to be looked after, taken care of, or fussed over. In our friendships, we need to be looking for opportunities to show care and nurture our friends. Mothering others means we give them attention, we listen, we take note of when they need some extra care and pampering. It was interesting to note that the antonym for ‘mothering’ is neglect. And when you think about it, when we neglect something, we give it no attention at all, no care or interest. This Mother’s Day, why not take some time to appreciate those ‘mothers’ who fill the need in your life for that little bit of TLC. And while you’re appreciating them, take a look around for those people in your life who might need some mothering themselves, after all, we do need to ‘embrace universal motherhood’!

The Lake News - May 2014 - Page 3
Hello Readers There has been considerable conversation amongst the community about the shift of Year 7 into secondary school from the commencement of 2015. A number of families I have spoken to are concerned that the secondary environment is not appropriate for children in Year 7 who are only 11 or 12 years old. Parents do not want to see their children lost amongst large numbers of older students. Where schools do not have effective programs in place for a smooth transition for students into secondary, parents have every right to express their concern.
e g e l l o C l a v i n r Ca ay M Sat 17 noon 12 m to 6p
A place for INNOVATION St John’s is a collaborative, online, interconnected learning community. Our teachers motivate their students to use new technologies, to source real time information and to create and publish their work. They are being well prepared for a rapidly changing future.
For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07 3372 0176
Queensland is one of the last states to move Year 7 into the secondary environment and the shift will bring the schooling structure in our state into line with New South Wales and Victoria that have educated Year 7 students within the high school setting for decades. St John’s Anglican College is somewhat unique in Queensland in that we have always had Year 7 within the secondary environment and was established with programs in place in Upper Primary and in Middle School to ensure a smooth and successful transition. St John’s students are guided towards working with greater independence while still in primary classes. They are able to access lessons and information from class websites set up by their teachers and can review their lessons and assessment tasks via remote means. Many of their learning activities utilise Web 2.0 tools and students can save their digital creations on the class website, leave comments, questions and blogs and therefore interact with their learning community online as well as face to face. The teachers also regularly utilise a strategy called ‘the flipped classroom’ which describes a reversal of traditional teaching methods. Instead of the teacher providing the students with all the content information they require and then setting homework based on that information, the Upper primary teachers flip this model and set homework that requires students to read information and watch videos from the class website. Valuable class time is then used for higher order thinking and problem solving. Students and their teachers are able to engage in deep discussions, analysing and evaluating the information they have gained. This ‘flipped’ model shifts the focus from passive to active learning, really engages the students and prepares them for more advanced learning experiences. St John’s next Open Day for Kindergarten to Year 12 is Saturday, 3 May 9 am to 12 noon. It would be wonderful to welcome you to the College so that you can learn more about our Year 7 transition program. Kind regards Suzanne Bain Head, St John’s Anglican College Kindy to Year 6 07 3372 0888 Years 7 to 12 07 3372 0111 www.stjohnsanglicancollege.com.au email@example.com

Your Teeth Your Smile
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. 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 childâ€™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 as 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. If there is no Obstructive Sleep Apnoea and the only problem is snoring there are several types of oral appliances that will help with that so you (or more importantly your family) can sleep easier. At Lakedental we are now using the latest Somnodent MAS appliance that is proving successful and is being well accepted.

Members of the Forest Lake Crochet group have been hard at work again producing blankets to donate wherever there is need. Over 20 blankets, as well as an assortment of booties and clothing, were recently donated to the Department of Communities Child Safety and Disability Services for children entering foster care. The items were gratefully received by a representative from the Department, Kerri-anne Handley. The crochet group were pleased to include in the donation items passed on to group organiser, Sue Gibbon, by the Giving with Love group. Members are also excited by the recent involvement of Excellence in Care, who placed a box for wool donations outside Forest Lake Woolworths and another outside Spotlight at Orion Shopping Centre, Springfield. The crochet group was then invited to conduct workshops inside the store, which were so successful that the store managers have asked for them to be a regular fixture. “We are just so thankful for the community support we have received so far,” said Sue. “Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the group would get this big this fast!” If you’re interested in joining the group, or have some wool to donate, Sue can be contacted on 3279 9561.

Locals raise their cups to fight cancer
Forest Lake resident Dianne de Lange will raise her cup and tip the balance in the fight against cancer this month when she celebrates Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. This year’s event is fast approaching, with all Queenslanders invited to pop the kettle on this May 22 to celebrate. Ms de Lange has participated for the past two years and said she was inspired to get involved after loved ones were touched by the disease. “I lost my sister to cancer, and many members here at my retirement village have been affected by it – there probably isn’t one person in the world who hasn’t been touched by cancer in some way,” she said. “Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is a great excuse to get everyone together, have a laugh and a chat, and enjoy some delicious food – all while raising money for a great cause.” With the help of Terraces Retirement Village Social Club, Ms de Lange’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea will be held on Friday May 23 at the Village Leisure Centre. More than 80 people are expected to attend. “As President of the Social Committee, I really enjoy planning the event. We have a raffle and lucky door and lucky seat prizes – we all just generally have a great time,” she said. “All the Terraces Village residents pitch in to make the day a success, and our on-site café prepare and supply the delicious food for the event – it’s a real team effort.” Tickets are $10 and must be purchased in advance. To purchase a ticket contact Dianne de Lange on 3271 1852. Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift said every cup counts in the fight against cancer. “Cancer Council Queensland has been making a real difference in the lives of Queenslanders affected by cancer, thanks to the wonderful support of people like Dianne and their communities,” she said. “Joining Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is an easy, fun and delicious way that we can work together for a cancer free future.” All Queenslanders are invited to join the party and celebrate the 21st year of Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. The official Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea date is Thursday, May 22 but events can be held anytime throughout May or June. Visit www.biggestmorningtea.com.au or call the Fundraising Hotline on 1300 65 65 85 for more information.

Having participated in the Kokoda Challenge for the last two years with her school, Forest Lake local, 17 year old Krista is excited to this year be selected for the Kokoda Youth Program and be heading to Papua New Guinea. With only ten teenagers accepted into the program from Brisbane, Krista needed to apply and then undergo an extensive interview before being selected for the coveted position. Wanting to understand more about what our troops went through, Krista participated in the Kokoda Challenge with her school team in 2012 and 2013 with the goal of becoming part of the Youth Program and eventually to complete the Kokoda Trail as an adult. In preparation for the gruelling event, participants must adhere to a strict training regime; missing more than one session results in being disqualified from the program. In the twenty weeks leading up to the Challenge, Krista will train every Wednesday afternoon with physical drills up and down the steps of Kangaroo Point Cliffs. Every Sunday will consist of a hike ranging from 12km (full PNG backpack kit) to 49km hikes, one being an overnight hike. On top of these, there is a group training camp, bonding sessions and learning about the soldiers of Kokoda legends, what they did, what they stood for, and how they survived. They are also expected to do small assignments on these things and present them orally to the group. Training will begin on 4th May with a fitness assessment and continue until July with the participants training for the Kokoda Challenge at the Gold Coast. Once completed, training will continue with the full backpacks that they will take to Papua New Guinea, weighing approximately 13-15kg in preparation for the trip to Papua New Guinea in September to hike the real Kokoda Trail. Once they return from Papua New Guinea, those in the program will then participate in helping a number of charities and non-profit organisations until May 2015. If you are interested in donating to the Kokoda Youth Program Challenge, simply follow the link and prompts kokodachallenge.com/donate-online. We look forward to hearing from Krista once she returns from the trip to Papua New Guinea in September and wish her the very best of luck ~ Ed.

Please give a few hours to help a million people Red Shield Appeal Doorknock Weekend 24 – 25 May The Salvation Army is asking members of the public to give a few hours to help collect for the annual Red Shield Appeal Doorknock Weekend which will take place on the weekend of 24-25 May. Salvation Army spokesperson, Major Bruce Harmer, says it is only through the generosity of the Australian people that The Salvation Army is able to continue to support people in need. “By giving a few hours of your time on the Red Shield Appeal Doorknock weekend, you will be helping us to help over one million people in need,” Major Harmer said. The national goal for the Red Shield Appeal Doorknock this year is $10 million, which forms part of The Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal which aims to raise $80 million across Australia. “Without the generous support of Australians in every suburb and town across the country, The Salvation Army could not reach this goal...the funds of which go directly to support Salvation Army programs and social services.” With Australia going through a major economic transition and many individuals and families facing an uncertain future, The Salvation Army expects many more people will be in need of basic assistance with issues such as food stress. “Many people who have been well off in the past are now genuinely worried about their future,” Major Harmer said. “The Salvation Army is in a unique position to assist individuals and families who fall on hard times, whether it be with their immediate needs such as food assistance through to working with people over the longer term with financial counselling; drug, alcohol and gambling rehabilitation services; as well as skills development and job placement just to name a few.” To join with Salvation Army Lake Community Church and volunteer, contact the church office on 3714 0777. You can also register your interest by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. To donate to the Red Shield Appeal directly please call 13 SALVOS (13 72 58), visit salvos.org.au, or in person at any Westpac Bank branch.

Ruth Frith’s daughter, Helen Searle OAM (left) and Ruth Frith’s great granddaughter, Nicole Rye (right) with Cr Angela Owen-Taylor at Ruth Frith Place. Centenarian and the world’s oldest competing athlete, Ruth Frith OAM passed away with dignity and peacefully at home earlier this year, aged 104 years six months and five days. Ruth Frith OAM (nee Pursehouse) was born on 23 August 1909 in Goulburn New South Wales, was married to Ray Frith OAM (deceased 2001) and had two daughters Rosalie and Helen. Councillor Angela Owen-Taylor said, “Ruth was a very special member of our community and we recognise her contribution not only to our local community but also on the international athletics stage. “Ruth was an inspiration to us all by demonstrating and promoting an active and healthy lifestyle. “In 2009, Ruth Frith OAM was awarded the Lord Mayor’s Australia Day Sports Award in recognition of her achievements representing the City of Brisbane. Ruth also was the recipient of the Queen’s Coronation Medal.” Currently a process is underway within Brisbane City Council to have a park in Parkinson, which recently had seniors fitness equipment installed (a Queensland first in a public park), dedicated to recognise Ruth’s significant contribution to sport and promoting an active and healthy lifestyle. Ruth officially celebrated her 104th birthday in the same park in August last year, at a special event organised by Cr Angela Owen-Taylor, with her daughter (dual Olympian and Triple Commonwealth Games Medallist) Helen Searle OAM, her friends, residents of the Carrington Retirement Community and documentary producers Margie Brown and Mandy Lake. Ruth is acknowledged as the World’s Oldest Competing Athlete and starred in the Flick Chicks documentary on the 100+ Club which aired on the ABC on 1 July 2012.

Urinary Calculi – bladder stones Urinary calculi are aggregations of various crystals that form in the bladder and urethra. They may be in the form of large single stones or multiple small stones like sand or gravel. The stones may cause a partial or a complete obstruction to the outflow of urine, making your pet strain trying to pass urine. A complete obstruction is an emergency which happens most frequently in male cats. They can also cause trauma to the lining of the bladder or urethra due to their rough surface resulting in production of bloody urine and severe discomfort when urine is passed. Infection is often present which makes your pet sick as well. How are they diagnosed? Some bladder stones can be palpated through the abdominal wall, however, not all are found this way. Most bladder stones are visible on x-ray or ultrasound. Stones not visible this way may require a contrast to be placed in the bladder before taking an x-ray. Small stones and crystals can be collected in a urine sample and diagnosed by microscope examination. How are they treated? There are two ways to remove bladder stones. The fastest is via surgery. The bladder is opened and the offending bladder stones are removed and/or the urethra is flushed if smaller stones have lodged there. Surgery is indicated immediately if there is an outflow obstruction from the bladder. Some stones can be dissolved, though this may take many weeks or months of treatment. How are they prevented? There are many causes of bladder stone formation. When the stones or crystals are removed and identified, a management program is started. This will be a combination of diet and medication and will involve regular checks of the urine.
Brisbane 2 Ipswich Challenge Bike Ride Cancelled for 2014 Ipswich Hospital Foundation and Bernie Ripoll would like to inform the community that regretfully, the Brisbane 2 Ipswich Challenge Bike Ride will be postponed until 2015. The Brisbane 2 Ipswich Challenge was planned for Sunday, 18 May 2014. Ipswich Hospital Foundation events coordinator Ashton Cooper said the two organisations have made this decision after much discussion surrounding ongoing construction and roadwork’s which affect the bikeways from Brisbane to Ipswich. “The decision to cancel the event has not been made lightly and it is the intention of both groups to ensure a seamless and spectacular event be produced in 2015. “We thank those people who had already registered to participate in Brisbane to Ipswich Challenge and I will be in contact shortly to arrange a refund.” Page 14 - May 2014 - The Lake News
Take the dog for a walk this month
Did you know that by just walking your dog you could help thousands of dogs? The RSPCA Million Paws Walk, on Sunday May 18, is your chance to help stop animal cruelty, and improve the lives of dogs like Cooper, a two-year-old Beagle-cross who is also one of the 2014 Million Paws Walk ‘hero dogs’. A call to the RSPCA from a concerned member of the public helped save the life of Cooper (pictured below), who was slowly being strangled by a nylon rope caught dangerously around his throat. The team at the RSPCA Animal Hospital treated Cooper’s horrific wound. The nylon rope had been around Cooper’s neck for so long that it was no longer visible, having become embedded up to 2.5cm deep in his skin folds. The rope had also become embedded in the underlying tissue and had been cutting into Cooper’s flesh so deeply and for such a long time that some of his flesh had died and begun to rot. The veterinary team treated Cooper’s wounds and after some rest and recuperation, he made a full recovery and was adopted three months after being rescued. Cooper is just one of over 18,000 dogs that pass through RSPCA shelters in Queensland every year. The Million Paws Walk is dedicated to raising much-needed funds to help these dogs get their second chance in life. All the money raised by walking and fundraising enables the RSPCA to continue their critical work in caring for dogs that have been lost, surrendered, abandoned or seized by RSPCA Inspectors. “The RSPCA’s annual operating costs are $39 million in Queensland and we receive less than one percent of that figure in Government funding. So every cent raised helps,” said RSPCA Qld spokesperson Michael Beatty. “The funds raised through Million Paws Walk also help fund education in the hope of preventing cruelty and neglect from being inflicted on dogs like Cooper. Not all cruelty is intentional. Sometimes it is simply ignorance and that’s why our Inspectors’ primary is often education. We need Receivepurpose a to make all people understand that animals suffer justFREE like us. They feel pain, they get hungry and they also get lonely. If we can spread this message, to young people in particular, then hopefully DELUXE CAR WAH they will learn empathy. By being kind to animals they will learn to show compassion and sensitivity to humans as well,” said with and anymake service Mr Beatty.

It was their sayonara event organised by these two amazing women viz. Lyn and Val who for the past two years have been responsible for organising Probus trips and activities. Their last event was a boat trip around Sovereign and Hope Island on the Gold Coast aboard the Rum Runner. Our host was Brian and our skipper Tony. Both men displayed a comprehensive knowledge of the area as we were entertained with anecdotes. Even skippy took an early nap in the shade of one of the trees. His family are a nuisance on the local golf course! After disembarking, members headed off to lunch at Cafe 21 at Sanctuary Cove and later some indulged in shopping. On the return journey aboard our coach, outgoing President Alan expressed the entire Club’s gratitude and appreciation for all their hard work and interesting trips. They certainly expanded our knowledge and we learnt about prawn farming, donkeys, and Brisbane’s infrastructure to name a few. Then, on top of that, there were sumptuous and delicious food and, of course, wine tasting. Thank you Lyn and Val, and may you now enjoy some personal ‘me’ time as we give you back to your partners! The April speaker was Dawn Muir, a keen ornithologist. She presented a slide show of Birds of Queensland and in particular those found in our backyards in this region. References to their habitat, relevant information and where she had actually seen them, allowed members to confirm some visitors to their own backyards. The Rainbow Bee-eaters found in Fig Tree Pocket originate from Papua New Guinea and pay us a visit only during our summer before they return home. They actually set up their electronic beams for guidance. An interesting fact about Kingfishers is that they are part of a research project where scientists are trying to find out how birds can see into water! The speaker informed us that even in the bird world there are those lazy ones who are late and slow to awaken in the mornings. These are the Fig birds. The Little Egret was decimated at one stage because their plume feathers were in great demand for ladies’ hats. They are observed at our Lake. There was so much more to learn but unfortunately time, as usual, was a disappointing constraint. Kevin passed the vote of thanks. Probus is a Club for those retired and semi-retired who are young at heart and who also believe in Carpe Diem (seize the day, make the most of time). We meet every second Tuesday of the month at 10am at the Forest Lake Hotel. More details page 35 of this publication.
We all retire - but Probus does it better. For graffiti removal phone Charles on 0411 959 994 Leave a message clearly indicating the location.

Forest Lake grandmother rides to conquer cancer Most people ride bikes as a kid, some continue to ride throughout their whole lives. For local mother of four and grandmother of three, Lorrie Patrick, not having ridden a bike since she was thirteen is not going to stop her from participating in this years Rio Tinto Ride to Conquer Cancer. A Forest Lake local for the last ten years, Lorrie will be riding the two day course that winds through scenic Queensland in August. Encouraged by her team members, one of which is her son who is travelling from Singapore to participate with her, 58 year old Lorrie is training hard with early morning and afternoon rides, preparing for the gruelling 200 kilometre route. In order to raise enough money to participate, a fundraiser night will be held this month on Wednesday, 14 May at Tran Tran Vietnamese Restaurant at 200 Grand, Forest Lake, from 5-9pm. Fifty percent of the $30 ticket cost will go to the cause, with local businesses asked to support by donating money or goods to raffle on the night. As well as raffles, there will be speeches and Councillor Angela Owen-Taylor will be in attendance to offer her support to Lorrie and the team. “It is the biggest challenge and commitment I and the team have undertaken, other than marriage and children and grandchildren, of course,” said Lorrie. “My team and I are thoroughly enjoying it and we’re not sure once this is over what we will do next. “I would thoroughly recommend for anybody to have a go,” she said. “You meet so many lovely people and you realise that the support from both family, friends and community is still alive and well.” Go to br14.conquercancer.org.au, click on Brisbane, donate button and type in Lorrie Patrick if you would like to donate directly to Lorrie, and follow the prompts. To buy tickets or donate to the fundraiser dinner, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Don’t let back pain rob you of your life’s best any more!
Finally, the truth about BACK PAIN! Do You Have Any of the Following Conditions? • L ower Back Pain or Stiffness • M uscle spasm or strains • B ulging lumbar discs • N umbness or soreness in your legs • S hooting hip or thigh pain • S ciatica Having back and leg pain can bring life to a standstill. You might not be able to play golf, work, pick up the grandkids or even sit in the car for a 30-minute drive. It’s almost impossible for anyone around you to understand how you feel. You can’t remember the last time you even had a restful night’s sleep.
Is back pain keeping you from enjoying what you love to do?
You’ve got too many dreams left undone to let back pain slow you down. Too many special moments waiting to be experienced with the kids or the grandkids?
Life is too short to let pain slow you down. Pain is your body’s warning sign telling you something is wrong. Sure, you can numb the pain if you take enough anti-inflammatories, narcotics or other pain pill. But if you mask the pain, it can prevent your back from healing – maybe even damage it further (anti-inflammatories work at a cellular level preventing healing). Many of the pain medications available are quite addictive and can have devastating side effects like heart attacks and catastrophic gastric haemorrhage or kidney failure.

Assistance Dogs Australia’s newest puppy recruit Brandy, may look cute and cuddly, but in two years’ time she will change the life of someone with a physical disability. Pups like Brandy will open the door to a new independence for their future clients, but to do this they need your help. That’s why Assistance Dogs Australia is sniffing out puppy raisers and sitters in Brisbane to be “puppy parents” to the litter of seven puppies Labrador mum Dee Dee gave birth to recently. “Raising a puppy lets you give back to the community with the added bonus of the pitter-pattering of puppy paws,” said Assistance Dogs Australia’s Senior Trainer, Cherie Bekker. “Puppy raisers and sitters will teach these pups to undertake tasks that are difficult or even impossible for people with physical disabilities to achieve. They’ll teach them to pick up all sorts of objects such as mobile phones and keys and make sure they are able to alert bark when required. “You can also take the pups to the shops, cafes, on public transport and even to the cinema as it is all these experiences that will help them become an Assistance Dog.” The pups will be helped in their quest to be Assistance Dogs by experienced Senior Trainer Cherie who will be there with raisers and sitters every step of the way during training, providing them with instruction and support for the 14 months the puppies spend on their “L” plates before returning to the National Training Centre in Heathcote, Sydney for Advanced Training. “The best part of being a puppy raiser or sitter is helping to change someone’s life by training a fantastic Assistance Dog,” Brisbane Puppy Raiser Joanna Zietek said. “To see the impact that Brandy will make to someone with a physical disability one day is priceless.” Assistance Dogs Australia is a charity that trains Labradors and Golden Retrievers to give freedom and independence to people with physical disabilities. Assistance Dogs do everyday tasks for their recipients that people with physical disabilities find difficult, if not impossible, to achieve, like opening and closing doors, pressing the button at the traffic lights, retrieving dropped items and even getting the phone. Each dog takes two years to train and is worth an investment of $27,000 but are placed with recipients free of charge. For further information about how you can help please call Assistance Dogs Australia on 1800 688 364 or view their website at www.assistancedogs.org.au.

Kiwanis Club of Brisbane and UNICEF partner to deliver life saving vaccinations It’s hard to believe that in this modern day and age, one baby dies from neonatal tetanus every nine minutes. That’s 60,000 innocent lives lost to this preventable disease every year. With a fatality rate of almost 100 per cent in areas lacking treatment facilities, once contracted, tetanus is almost always deadly for newborns. Through an initiative of Kiwanis, the Mothers Day Project is raising funds to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) by providing vaccinations to 61 million women in 25 countries. The Kiwanis Club of Brisbane is supporting the project by urging local community members to give. Anita Lennox, President Kiwanis Club Brisbane, says the project is life changing. “To help raise money towards the elimination of MNT, Kiwanis established the ‘Mothers Day Project’ in 2012. “The premise behind the ‘Mothers Day Project’ is to allow people to give the ‘gift of life’ on Mothers Day by purchasing a vaccination package on behalf of their mother, sister, wife or loved one. “In 2012, in its inaugural year, we raised over $7,000 by contributing through the www.mothersdayproject. com.au site. In 2014, we are aiming to raise in excess of $50,000. This will allow over 25,000 mothers and their
unborn babies to be protected from MNT.” Kiwanis, a global community based organisation that works towards positive change, is partnering with UNICEF to raise $110 million and deliver the required vaccinations to eliminate MNT from the world. More than 61 million mothers and their future babies must be immunised. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It only costs approximately $2.00 to purchase the three life changing vaccinations required to protect a mother and her future babies from this terrible disease. “It sounds like the problem is too big, but in this case it really isn’t. There is already a proven action plan in place and the results are measurable. All we need are the funds to keep going. “It can be hard to find something meaningful to give on Mothers Day. But such a small amount of money will directly save and protect another mother and her babies from this excruciating disease. “Contributors receive a letter and certificate that they can give their loved one and I think both the giver and receiver will feel a sense of pride that they have done something to help another mum and her baby who so desperately need it.”

STATE MEMBER FOR ALGESTER In my last couple of columns I have talked about the Great Results funding which every school in the area has received. It is important, I believe, that residents are aware what this significant investment in our schools mean for their children or grandchildren. As an example, Forest Lake State School received a significant investment of $293,146 by the Government, which is on top of their normal school budget. What does this mean for families that have children at Forest Lake State School? The strategy has been agreed to: • provide additional human resources; • target teachers and teacher aides to support Prep to Year 2; • utilise a range of multi modal approaches to support modern innovative teaching practices. There has been a lot of discussion around the state’s debt and how it should be dealt with. The Treasurer recently launched the interactive people’s Budget Website Tool which is continuing the conversation with Queenslander’s on the choices we face to secure our future and pay down the $80 billion in debt accumulated over the last 10 years. There are a lot of programs and projects we all would like to see delivered, but the question is “How do we pay for them?” The people’s Budget Tool allows resident’s the opportunity to provide detailed feedback on exactly what their priorities for the state are and to make their own choices as to how they would reduce the state’s debt. I urge residents to go online at www.strongchoices.qld. gov.au to have your say.
Forest Lake RSL Sub-branch Update by Peter Foley By the time you are reading this edition of The Lake News, ANZAC Day will have come and gone. For any RSL Sub-branch this is the biggest event of the year. It takes a huge amount of organisation and planning in the month leading up to it and unfortunately it is all over in an hour or so. The Forest Lake RSL Sub-branch has been staging its parade and commemorative service for well over ten years now and would not have been able to do so without the support of many people, both members, and members of other associations and businesses in the Forest Lake Community. The two high schools have always been invaluable because they provide the music at the service. The junior schools, Girl Guides and so on who march with the veterans prove that ANZAC Day is alive and well. We have had financial support from Malouf Pharmacy and the Forest Lake Shopping Centre. The Rotary Club of Forest Lake and the Lions Club help us by providing manpower to run stalls, drive our bus and look after the car park. This year we saw the end of our long association with 230 Squadron Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC). However, it also saw the beginning of an association with 219 Squadron and also with the new Naval Cadet group starting up in the area. Next year we will see more uniforms from these two groups. Although we, the Forest Lake RSL Sub-branch, run the ANZAC Day activities in this area, it is as much the community’s day as ours. Also, a large thank you must go to those people who support our Sub-branch by purchasing badges and memorabilia from our stalls. The profit generated from these sales enable us to celebrate ANZAC Day. Thank you one and all. Don’t forget we need members urgently. Contact our Membership Officer, Kevin Dinsdale, on 0451 177 535.

Hope all had a great Easter break. On board our reliable Concorde coach we recently travelled to Highfields Pioneer Village in the beautiful City of Toowoomba. Morning tea was at Highfields, so only a comfort stop on the way up was required. On arrival, we were greeted and made to feel very welcome by the lovely volunteer staff who guided us to a room where we were given an insight into the people who inhabited this area in those times. Once the talk was over, it was time for morning tea of fresh damper and billy tea, and after leaving Forest Lake at 7.45am we were all looking forward to it. Morning tea over we divided into two groups, one went to the Heritage Chapel, the other to the Ambulance museum and the volunteers gave a talk about the village and how most of the items on display were donated or loaned. The historical Gore Railway Station is now a resident of Highfields Pioneer Village. There is B.J.Palmer boot Repair - donâ€™t see things like that these days. Another large collection is of vintage cars and tractors as well as antique radios and electrical appliances all in working order. After walking around the village at our leisure seeing other interesting buildings such the Southern Cross Museum and Toy Shop, we all settled down for a lunch of beef stew, which everyone loved, also damper, to soak up the gravy from the stew. Desert was fruit salad and ice cream all washed down with more billy tea. With another successful day over we settled back on the Coach for the relaxing trip back to Forest Lake. Forest Lake 50+ Club meet on the third Friday of the month at the Queensland Lions Soccer Club, Pine Road, Richlands at 10.30am and new members are always welcome. For more information on the club and its activities, please contact Kay (Treasurer) on 3278 9406 or Les (Activities Officer) on 3279 9449 or mob 0466 377 618, or email email@example.com.

Forest Lake National Seniors By Julie Baldwin Branch Update A friendly welcoming awaits ladies and gentleman in the 50 something age group residing in Forest Lake and its surrounding suburbs. May’s meeting is Wednesday 14th May at Settlers Village, 41 High Street, Forest Lake, 9.30am sign in for a 10am start. Parking available at Salvation Army and on High Street. Congratulations to the winners of the Spirit of the Lake awards for 2014. May’s Branch Meeting includes a celebration for Mother’s Day and a great entertainer. It will be a wonderful morning guaranteed. Did you know we have Coffee and Chat mornings the first Wednesday of the month 9.30am start? We alternate between The Coffee Club and Diamantes monthly. The get together is a nice chance to have a catch up and enjoy your morning tea in good company. Contact Ros 3372 9432 if you would like to come along. The latest addition to our Branch is the formation of The Theatre Goers Group. We look forward to attending Tuesday Movie Mornings and Saturday Night Plays at handy locations nearby. A very big event for May is our Zone 101 Conference to be held on 29th at Lions Soccer Club, Richlands. This will be attended by a representative group of members from the 15 Branches within our Zone and a large number of our own branch members. A very interesting Agenda for the day. Our very young branch is proud to host this extremely important event on the National Seniors Calendar. We will get the latest news from Canberra from Michael O’Neill as well as other entertaining speakers and a top class entertainer. We especially thank our sponsors, Ingenia (Settlers) and the Brisbane City Council, for their wonderful support. Due to popular demand from members, special guest speaker at April’s meeting was Da-en Preston. Once again Da-en’s clear demonstration of life saving techniques and use of specialised equipment provided members with a very good understanding of how best they can react in the event of a real life emergency. Da-en has a very good rapport with we citizens in the 50 something age group and is passionate about this subject. The April lunch outing was just a short drive to the Blue Fin Club in Inala and was very well attended. There is something for everyone on the Club’s extensive menu. This is a first time visit by our Branch. Thursday 20th May we have a wonderful trip planned to visit a beautiful historical homestead at Cambooya. This tour includes morning tea and lunch. Another great opportunity to take a step back in time and see a working property as well. We do have a couple of seats available if you would like to join us. Contact Julie 3278 7274 for more details. For further information about our Branch please contact either Julie 3278 7274 or Ros 3372 9432.

Last week saw the entire Forest Lake community commemorate ANZAC Day; a wonderful opportunity to reflect upon those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the protection of our country. Whether you marched in a parade, attended a dawn service, or just paused for a moment to reflect, you are ensuring that the legacy of ANZAC Day lives on. I am also aware that many ex-servicemen and women – some more recent veterans than others – call Forest Lake home, and I wish to again thank each of you for your service to the nation’s security and prosperity. I am also pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the 2014 Queensland Day Awards. It is a fantastic chance to honour those who volunteer and help our local community. The deadline for nominations is close of business on Friday May 16, so I urge you to start considering worthy contenders now. If you require a nomination form or have questions, please feel free to contact my office on 3372 3207.

Special service to honour mothers
Remembrance S ervice
FRIDAY MAY 9TH 6.30PM
In a commitment to provide care to people who have suffered the loss of a mother, sister, aunt or daughter, Centenary Memorial Gardens will hold a Mothers Day Remembrance service on Friday May 9. Now in it’s thirteenth year, the special service is open to anyone in the community who has lost a female family member, even people who may have used a different cemetery or crematorium are welcome. This years service will include guest speaker Lisa Grosskopf. Lisa is a popular funeral celebrant who has assisted many of the families who have come to Centenary Memorial Gardens. Lisa will also be singing on the evening and presenting a photo tribute to women. “We can’t change the profound sadness a family feels at the loss of a mother but our services provide an opportunity to remember her and draw close to her in a non- threatening environment surrounded by others experiencing a similar loss,” said Peter Ship, Manager, Centenary Memorial Gardens. “Each year we try and present a service that is different but meaningful, just a casual relaxed atmosphere where people can take the time to remember their loved ones. “One year we planted 150 trees on the evening to create the Garden of Angels, another year we presented everyone with a pack of home-made cupcakes. Sometimes we hand out flowers that the family can place on their loved ones grave. “We have even been known to have spectacular fireworks displays, all as a part of honouring Mothers and celebrating their lives.” The special Mothers Day Remembrance service will be held in the Federation Chapel at Centenary Memorial Gardens on May 9 starting at 6.30pm. Guests are asked to RSVP before May 6 by calling Centenary Memorial Gardens on 3271 1222.

“Discipline is not a dirty word!” That’s the advice an older man gave me when we had our first child. He went on to tell me, “Remember Mark, your first job is to be her dad, not her friend.” My initial reaction was, “But I want to be her friend.” He went on to explain to me that while it’s good for me to want to be a friend to my kids, my first priority is to be their parent – to discipline, to guide, to nurture and to lead. I think it’s fair to say that most parents want to be friends with their kids but the model we are often given in the media today is that the best way for this to occur is to “let our kids find full self-expression” and not discipline them. If a child doesn’t want to do something, go somewhere, behave appropriately, let them. However, the problem of not appropriately disciplining our children is that we set them up to think they are the centre of the world – it them comes as an enormous shock to find this isn’t the case when they enter the wider world. While we need to encourage, affirm and honour our kids, we also need to teach them the virtue of self-discipline. Studies have shown that, on average when kids have good boundaries and discipline, they achieve better results at school, have better social skills, gain better selfdiscipline and respect others. The other potential aspect, I believe, is that parents become empowered to be exactly that – parents! We want our kids to respect us – the Biblical commandment is for children to “honour your father and mother.” (Exodus 4:31 PM 20:12) That comes as parents honour one another, back one another up and show respect for ourselves by not accepting disrespect. The wonderful thing about healthy discipline is that the results become a legacy. The way I know that is that the older man who gave me the advice at the start of this article was my dad, who was once given the same advice by his father. My dad and I are mates but that mateship grew out of him being first and foremost, “Dad.” If you were not modelled good parenting, you can be the generation that makes the change! Get along to a parenting seminar that will be run later this year, read some material on parenting, decide to change one thing in your home and build from there.

ANZAC Day Congratulations to the Forest Lake RSL Sub Branch for yet another memorable ANZAC Day tribute to the men and women who have served and sacrificed for the freedom we enjoy in this country. I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge all those members of the Defence Services who are currently serving. It was wonderful to see so many in the community coming out to pay tribute. As many residents will have noticed on ANZAC Day we have a new addition to the Amphitheatre – shade sails above the seating area. This will enable more opportunities for this venue to be utilised in a more weather resistant manner. This space is able to be booked and more information is available through my Ward Office. We will see the Amphitheatre and the Sails Stage activated on 1 June for the annual Parkinson Ward Multicultural and Dragonboat Festival, commencing at 9am with a Citizenship Ceremony hosted by Rotary Club of Forest Lake Inc, the Official Festival Opening at 10am followed by performances, dragonboat races and multicultural food stalls until 2pm. Please come and join in a truly wonderful multicultural experience in our local community. Active School Travel The portable speed warning sign has been recently located on Grand Avenue to alert drivers when they are exceeding the speed limit and advising them to slow down. It is important, particularly around our local schools, that drivers exercise caution to ensure the safety of local children. Active School Travel has been implemented at all State Primary Schools within Parkinson Ward and given that many children are walking and riding to school I urge all drivers to be vigilant. I encourage all local families to endeavour to promote walking, cycling and carpooling to help reduce cars around our schools. Parents and carers collecting and dropping children off at schools are also reminded that parking for any period of time in the drop off zones is not permitted. Similarly, drivers are reminded that disabled parking zones require a permit and Council Officers will be conducting enforcement in respect of people parking in these carparks without an approved permit. Mothers Day I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our local Mothers a very happy Mother’s Day; you all make a valuable contribution to our community building the foundations for our future generations.

superannuation. However, just when you think you are doing your best to comply with the government’s objective, it comes along and tinkers with some of the rules again, normally to one’s disadvantage. In recent weeks, many people earning somewhat more than the average wage, $300,000 to be precise, would have received letters from the ATO telling them to pay their 15% Division 291 tax, an initiative introduced by the previous federal government and which applies for the first time in the 2012-13 financial year. The rationale for the tax appears to be that high income earners have a particular incentive to invest in superannuation when its tax on income derived from concessional contributions (for example, compulsory employer or salary sacrificed superannuation) is only 15%, as compared to a top marginal tax rate of 46.5% including Medicare levy. The maximum compulsory contribution payable by an employer is capped, but there may be an incentive to salary sacrifice so that the total contributions reach the maximum $25,000 level. The Division 291 tax is paid as follows: 1. Calculate your taxable income which may have been reduced by salary sacrificed superannuation. 2. Add back any salary sacrificed superannuation shown on your PAYG Summary, plus the compulsory superannuation paid by the employer. 3. If the combined sum of 1 and 2 exceeds $300,000, Division 291 tax applies. The tax payable is based on the lower of: 1. The amount calculated at 3 above less $300,000; or 2. The total of 2 above. Thus, if one’s taxable income was $290,000 and the total concessional contributions $20,000 the revenue base for Division 291 would be $10,000. If taxable income was $310,000 the revenue base would be $20,000. 15% tax would apply in both instances. Whether the tax is $1,500 or $3,000 in the above instances, it is still a nasty shock to receive in the mail. There are some who would say: “Big deal, those people can afford to pay that tax”. However, if the purpose was to reduce the gap between 46.5% personal tax and 15% superannuation tax it should be noted that even on incomes from $37,000 upwards the marginal tax rate with Medicare levy is 34%. That is 19% above the superannuation tax...what’s that saying “with the stroke of a pen”? When will they leave superannuation alone?

Dave is a Chartered Accountant with a keen interest inFOR personal OXLEY finance issues. Mother’s Day 11 May Mother’s Day is just two weekends away and it is a great opportunity for families to come together to recognise the significant contribution mothers make to our lives. There will be plenty of activity in the local parks and recreational areas as well as local community groups hosting events to raise money for charitable organisations. Look out for details of Mother’s Day Stalls and other activities leading up to Sunday 11 May in school newsletters and around your community. National Reconciliation Week - Let’s Walk the Talk May 27 – June 3 National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is celebrated across Australia to commemorate two significant milestones in Australian history. May 27th marks the anniversary of the 1967 referendum which saw over 90% of Australians vote to give the Commonwealth the power to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and recognise them in the national census. June 3rd marks the anniversary of the 1992 High Court Mabo decision which legally recognised that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a special relationship to the land that existed prior to colonalisation and still exists today. The decision marked the way for land rights called Native Titles. NRW is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared history, culture and achievements. It is easy for schools and community groups to get involved by attending or hosting an event providing an opportunity for everyone to ‘walk the talk’.

by Alex Eramudugolla
Fundraise for the Leukaemia Foundation - Sunday 18th May ‘Walk With the Lions’ community charity walk to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland is seeking your support. Create history by joining your local Lions Club for our first fundraising walk around our picturesque lake. In addition you will be helping so many leukaemia patients and their families. Families like those of Katelyn Marks. When Katelyn Marks (pictured) was diagnosed with leukaemia at age five, her family had to leave their home in Biloela and relocate to Brisbane where she started treatment. The Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland provided Katelyn and her family with free support services throughout her treatment, including free accommodation at one of the Foundation’s villages in Brisbane. Your support can be further extended by getting your friends, neighbours and relatives to sponsor you for the walk. Already some walkers have raised over $500 through sponsorship. For online registration visit www.everydayhero.com.au/event/walkwiththelions2014. If you prefer to register using manual forms, registration and sponsorship forms are available, please call 0422 008 359. There will also be a registration desk at the Forest Lake Shopping Centre from Saturday 10th to Saturday 17th May. The registration fees are as follows: Early bird: Individual $15; Family $30; Children (under 18) $10. On the Day: Individual $25; Family $40; Children (under 18) $10. Our local business community, Councillors and Members of Parliament stand behind this worthy project through their sponsorship as well as contributing prizes to a grand raffle which will be drawn on the day. All proceeds go to the Leukaemia Foundation. Bring the whole family, your visitors, friends and neighbours for this great morning. You don’t have to walk the whole distance, but have fun and help our little friends like five year old Katelyn Marks. Register! Fundraise! Walk! Show that you care.

by John Prout As we approach Mother’s Day, all the children, regardless of their age, are planning where to take Mum, Nana or Grandma to lunch for her special day of the year. Select somewhere nice as all Mums deserve the best treatment. Even breakfast in bed is enjoyable in some cases but it’s a problem when orange juice is spilt on the sheets thereby giving Mum more work. This day is our opportunity to express our gratitude to our Mums. Children love to show the cards they have made at school which becomes a treasured keepsake for Mum. One of the popular flowers to give Mum is the chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum grandiflorum). Most chrysanthemums are upright plants with lobed leaves that can be aromatic. The many showy flower heads, carried at the tips of strong stems, begin to bloom as the days shorten. Maybe this flower is sought after on Mother’s Day as the spelling ends with “mum”. On our recent bus trip we travelled to the Broadwater in the Rum Cruiser on the Gold Coast, and spent the afternoon exploring the secrets Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens. This is truly a hidden treasure. If you have the opportunity to visit, then it is recommended. Our next bus trip will be on Saturday 19 July as we visit northern NSW and the Gold Coast Hinterland. The flyer will be available at this month’s meeting. Recently our member, Linda Hore, opened her garden for members and friends to visit. When a member has an ‘open garden’, it gives us the opportunity to see what is growing successfully in our local area as well as a chance for a chat over a cuppa. Thanks Linda for an enjoyable afternoon.
