elcome to the last edition of MWP before Christmas Day. I can’t quite believe how it has crept up on us so quickly, but the silly season is here and we are off on holidays so next week there will be no issue of My Weekly Preview for you to enjoy over your Friday morning cuppa. But don’t despair – we’re hoping you can make this issue last, and with this week’s cover story written by Dorothy Drane, there is plenty to savour. Dot is reminiscing again and, of course, this time it’s all about Christmas. We love it when Dot writes a cover story as she has a great way of capturing the experiences of days gone by, and though she and I belong to different generations – Dot’s a baby boomer, I am a member of generation X – when Dot starts pondering the way things were, it always makes me smile. This week she’s returned to a time of

real-life Chrissy trees, simple gifts and stinking hot roasts to recall what a Sunshine Coast Christmas used to be like. I hope you get as much joy from it as I did – it’s over the page. Still in the sentimental mood, this week, on page 36, we have a 10-page special feature on the Mooloolaba Surf Club. The club and the building that houses it have gone through a few major transformations over the years, and to celebrate its latest incarnation, we have taken a look through the history books and bring you this celebration of Mooloolaba and its clubbies – check it out on page 36. Our property cover story has some fantastic homes and investments for your Christmas stocking – okay so nobody’s stocking is that big, but I encourage you to check it out as there are some great homes for sale at the moment. That is in My Property Preview, on page 50.

Dorothy Drane is reminiscing about Christmas past, and it goes a little something like this.

I

t’s the smell in the air that gives it away, not the decorations turning up in the shops a week earlier every year or the canned carols playing in supermarkets. It’s that scent that rises from the earth after a hot day, one that is often amplified by a solid storm to cool everything down in the late afternoon. Unlike wine, it can’t be described as woody with citrus undertones (although it probably has both) and not even rainforest incense or the Sunday smell of grass clippings will do it. It’s simply the smell of Queensland summer that turns up to announce Christmas is on its way each December. I learnt to identify it as the smell of summer many years ago when walking through a London park one June. I observed that I could smell Christmas in the air. “That, my friend, is the smell of summer so I can’t imagine why you would think of Christmas,” my British pal replied. And so it is that the smell of Christmas is here again, announcing the festive season far more effectively than the vision of silver, green and gold tinsel, the sound of jingling bells, the taste of a mince pie or the touch of a switch that turns a family home into a wonderland of coloured lights and dancing snowmen. Next to arrive on a sultry summer evening are the Christmas beetles, once mostly a shimmering cream but now more commonly a dull brown, but either way, beetles that know how to cling to clothing and buzz the air around Christmas time. The decorations might have become too elaborate, the range of gifts too extravagant, the want-list too long, the food too rich and the demands too stressful, but there are still plenty of Christmas romantics who just want to recapture the wonder and magic of those special couple of weeks between school break-ups

and unwrapping presents under a pine tree that is already shedding its needles on the floor. And because no matter how hard we try, we just can’t quite manage to find that sense of something really special year after year, many become cynical. With the exception of those who haven’t yet reached double figures, there’s a common sigh of “Christmas just isn’t what it used to be”, or “I hate Christmas because it’s never what it promises”, or “Christmas has just become another day”, or “it’s full of unrealistic expectations”, or “everyone has to spend too much money buying things they don’t really need or even want”. As a baby boomer, it’s kind of amusing to hear the laments for the good old days of Christmas past from gen Y. Although less than two decades ago, it was already a struggle to find something to make their Christmas special and different from the rest of the year. I once even went into Christmas with the credo “less is more” to see if that could set it apart from the rest of the year. It didn’t work but clearly something did as there is still a modicum of sentimentality. And even though leg ham, cream biscuits, soft drink and lollies are no longer something that come but once a year at Christmas, and despite gifts no longer coming just from Santa alone (at last count there had to be stockings filled with something interesting, not just plastic junk or chocolate, plus a present from Santa, plus a present from mum and dad), I’m happy to say there were some things that made Christmas exciting. Strangely enough though, it wasn’t the expensive gifts or the holidays or the hype, but the simplest things that gave all three of my 20-something children a fond reminiscence of childhood Christmas. It was just a very ordinary old Christmas tree that had no price tag.

It couldn’t go up at the beginning of December because it was a ‘real’ one. Even if it went up the week before Christmas, it was still struggling to look alive on Christmas Day. It didn’t look anything like the trees in the catalogues, movies or books. It looked daggy with straggling uneven branches that regularly dropped the decorations on to the floor as it wilted. But it had two things in its favour: it smelt like Christmas, spreading its piney scent around the house, but most importantly, it was an adventure. Dad would hitch up the trailer and the kids would pile in the back as we cruised down our quiet Palmwoods road looking for the most shapely slash pine growing a dime a dozen on the roadside. This was quite a selection process. It had to be the right height (not too tall), have plenty of branches to hold decorations and be thick and bushy. There would be endless arguments about which was “the best” until finally, out came the chainsaw and the tree was dropped into the trailer for the short ride back home. There was a search for a new trick each year in the quest to prolong the lifespan of the perfect tree – few ever worked. The tree went up in an old paint drum filled with dirt and then carefully

wrapped with Christmas paper. It didn’t look at all trimmed like a Christmas card tree, but it was all ours and it smelt just right. This was the stuff of memories, not in the ’50s or ’60s, but in the ’90s and ’00s. A simple Christmas ritual that still has an important place in the memories of three young adults. Piling into the car that same night to drive around looking at the Christmas lights in all the nearby streets was similarly etched into young minds. Another ritual that came at no cost. And it’s only now, a big 22-year-old boy with the obligatory tattoo will confess that he was utterly convinced for years that when I pointed to the stars and kept saying “are you sure you can’t see him, there he is, look just there”, he really and truly did see that sleigh belting past the Southern Cross. It’s these little simple memories that make Christmas special. Like my own children, I’ve long since forgotten what presents I unwrapped. But I do remember the big green canvas from which teachers distributed red ice-blocks on the last day of school; the watermelon that was distributed as a treat (I always felt cheated on this one as I never did like watermelon), and the continued over >

<from previous page Wimmers soft drink truck delivering yellow creaming soda, lime cooler and cherry cheer in a crate. It arrived a few days before Christmas but, like the plums, was forbidden fruit until the big day. The chickens came fresh from the farm gate at Eastons in School Road, Maroochydore. One year, Jack Vermeulen from the Windmill Bakery at the top of Nambour baked a crispy crust for the ham. That was really special. The Co-op in Currie Street had big tins of Arnott’s cream biscuits, sealed within dark blue paper, that were sold just for the Christmas season. Lunch wasn’t a sensible cold seafood and salad or a sherry-drenched trifle, but a hot roastt followed by a pud that might have a sixpence or a threepence in it if you were lucky. After decimal currency arrived in 1966, you had to give the coin back, even if you did find it, because the new currency couldn’t stand the baking. The house was decorated with coloured paper streamers and balloons; tinsel was a rare commodity, its use restricted to the Christmas tree. Christmas cards actually arrived by post and were pegged on pieces of string to become another form of seasonal decoration. There were

no cheap and cheerful two-bob shops jam-packed with every piece of silver, red, green and gold item with its roots in a fairybook vision of what Christmas should look like. Gift were dollies and prams and Matchbox cars, not iPhones, PlayStations and pool toys (mainly because the only pools were municipal). The Coast turned into tent city as beachfront parks filled with happy holidaymakers under canvas, running around with white zinc splattered across their noses. Much has changed, but even as we want to wail that the true meaning of Christmas is lost, that it’s no fun anymore unless you have more children, that there’s nothing special about Christmas any more, that it’s too commercial … stop. Relax. Cool down. It’s a wonderful time of year. It may well be that it’s the humblest of things you dream up today that make the really special memories for tomorrow. Some things really haven’t changed. Even with fans and air-conditioning, there’s still the heat, the beach towels flapping on the clothes lines and balconies, the sense of peace on earth and goodwill towards all men. And of course, the smell. Merry Christmas.

ueensland’s Boundary Commissioner has recommended Noosa residents go to a referendum to determine whether the northern end of the Coast will split from Sunshine Coast Council. The decision has raised concerns a vote in favour of de-amalgamation will come at substantial cost to all Sunshine Coast residents. Queensland Treasury Corporation will be the independent umpire, overseeing the costs of de-amalgamation, which it has estimated at about $13.6 million initially, amounting to an extra $260 per ratepayer in the first year. There will be ongoing costs of an extra $142 per ratepayer in the following years, rising with inflation. The figure is about $2 million less than the Sunshine Coast Councilcommissioned Deloittes report and reportedly six times higher than the figure put forward by the Noosa Independence Alliance.

Sunshine Coast mayor Mark Jamieson says while the vote is an important one for the people of Noosa, it has ramifications for all Coast residents. “I think it’s important for the people who get the vote – and those who don’t – to understand exactly what the costs are and how they will be affected,” Jamieson says. Queensland Treasury Corporation estimates the council’s projected $31 million operating surplus over the next five years would result in a nearly $45 million deficit to be shared by the two councils. At the end of the five-year QTC forecast period, the debt of the current council is estimated around $260 million, while the deficit of the two combined councils is expected to be about $315 million. Jamieson expressed concern about issues raised in the boundary commissioner’s report, such as the financial stability of both councils, the ability to deliver key regional projects such as the airport expansion and development of the

TENSIONS RISE OVER NOOSA

Noosa could soon go it alone if 50 per cent of residents vote to de-amalgamate Maroochydore CBD, the impact on the levels of service on tourism and the council’s reduced capacity to contribute to the region’s economic development. Minister for Local Government David Crisafulli says the government promised it would give communities the opportunity to vote where there’s a chance a viable council could be created. “No doubt there are costs, but if the community feels that the pain in the pocket is worth the price for an independent council area, they’ll get their old council back,” Crisafulli says. Jamieson says he was elected as

mayor of the whole Sunshine Coast and the council team will continue to focus on creating investment and job opportunities for the region. “This work is so important it simply can’t be put on hold – and we will continue to get on with the job of creating opportunities for people on the Sunshine Coast.” The council respects the state government’s decision to enable a referendum and will co-operate fully with the process. “Council’s position has been clear on de-amalgamation – it would prefer to stay as one united council for one united region.”

Thousands of people attended the funeral of Daniel Morcombe last Friday, honouring the Coast teenager who went missing from a bus stop at Woombye nine years ago. The service began with a eulogy typical of the grace Daniel’s parents have shown during the nine years since he was taken while on his way to buy Christmas presents. His simple white casket, adorned with red roses, was carried from the church at his Daniel is f nally laid to rest former school, Siena Catholic College, to the strains of Elton John’s song Daniel. His parents, Bruce and Denise, kept their promise to their son – a dignified funeral service that focused on his legacy, not the evil act that cut his life short. The Morcombes have become tireless advocates for child safety, through the foundation they established in Daniel’s name. Determined the service would not be mired in sadness, they asked mourners to wear a hint of red, in honour of Daniel, and a smile. The 13-year-old’s casket was driven under police escort from the church, while hundreds formed a guard of honour for a boy remembered as loving but tough, quiet, yet mischievous. A committal hearing for Brett Peter Cowan, the man accused of murdering Daniel, is due to resume in February. AAP

EATING DISORDERS COST AUSTRALIA $69.7BN

A

lmost one million Australians are suffering from an eating disorder, costing the nation a staggering $69.7 billion this year, new research shows. The Paying the Price report, to be launched by the Butterfly Foundation on Tuesday, covers the prevalence and social and economic costs of eating disorders in Australia. “Until now, we had no idea that the socioeconomic impact of eating disorders was comparable to around two per cent of Australia’s GDP,” says CEO of the Butterfly Foundation Christine Morgan. The landmark report estimates there are 913,986 Australians with an eating disorder, with Deloitte Access Economics putting the total social and economic cost at $69.7 billion this year.

The report suggests mortality rates are almost twice as high for people with eating disorders than in the general population. And it estimates that up to 1828 people died from eating disorders in 2012 (515 males and 1313 females). “The number of annual deaths, for eating disorders, is higher than the 2011 Australian road death toll,” Morgan says. The Butterfly Foundation is urging state, territory and federal governments to resolve the ongoing issue of mental health funding. It says acute sector and community service providers need to have the necessary protocols and specialist knowledge for early identification and care for people with eating disorders, and private health insurance coverage needs to be extended. AAP

PM voted Australia’s most inf uential female Prime Minister Julia Gillard says she had “no inkling” of the effect her so-called misogyny speech aimed at Opposition Leader Tony Abbott would have. She made the comments after being voted the most influential female voice in Australia by Fairfax Media’s Daily Life website. The site lauded her for the now infamous speech in October, saying it was a “watershed moment” for Australian women. “Our first female Prime Minister had kept silent on sexism directed at her and entrenched in Australian politics since her election, but when she spoke it wasn’t just Australia, but the world, that stopped and listened,” a statement on their website said. But Gillard, in an accompanying interview with Fairfax, had no idea how much attention the world would pay to the speech until Treasurer Wayne

Swan told her. “I thought I had given a hard-hitting speech but I didn’t have any inkling of the effect of it,” she said. “I said to Wayne, ‘Oh, we’re going to have to sit here now and listen to all these bloody speeches in reply. I should get my chief of staff to bring some correspondence so at least I can be getting on with something.’ “And Wayne, with a slightly odd look on his face … said, ‘You can’t really give the “I accuse” speech and settle back and do your correspondence’.” She said women had shown their support of the speech by sending her notes and presents. Media commentator Anne Summers was voted the second most influential woman in Australia, followed by social commentator, writer and lecturer Jane Caro, Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick and Walkley award-winning journalist and 7.30 anchor Leigh Sales.

LIFE-SIZED REPLICA OF NOAH’S ARK UNVEILED

D

ORDRECHT, The Netherlands – A full-scale replica of Noah’s Ark has opened its doors to the public in The Netherlands. Stormy weather on Monday could do nothing to dampen the good mood of its creator, Dutchman Johan Huibers. In fact, the rain was appropriate. In the Biblical story, God orders Noah to build a boat big enough to save animals and Noah’s family

while the earth is covered in an enormous flood. Huibers interpreted the description given in Genesis to build his ark. It measures in at a whopping 130 metres long, 29 metres across and 23 metres high. Huibers says he realised a 20-year dream to educate people about history and faith. The ark has received permission to receive up to 3000 visitors a day. AP

GPT’S QUALITY PORTFOLIO

Justin Scattini is from Ord Minnett in Buderim

G

PT Group, part owner of Sunshine Plaza, is a property company focused on the active ownership of Australian real estate in the retail, office and industrial/business park sectors. Funds management and selective development complete this focus. In the group’s September quarter update, chief executive officer Michael Cameron said he had “enormous confidence” in delivering in the short term, which we take to mean the ability to comfortably meet guidance of seven per cent plus growth in earnings per security. This sentiment was also reflected in the group’s first comments about next year’s earnings (note: GPT’s financial year is aligned with the calendar year), with expectations of a “very strong 2013”. We forecast 6.3 per cent growth in 2013; a respectable pace compared with the broader market. Cameron suggested three factors supporting his conviction: • GPT’s low cost of debt; • the reduction in expenses (alluding to head count reductions earlier this year) with the full benefit felt next year; and • a dramatic reduction in the drag on earnings from vacancies at 111 Eagle St, Brisbane. GPT is focused on acquisitions for its industrial portfolio with the asset class now comprising over 10 per cent of property assets. The group is in the final stages of at least three acquisitions, and hopes to finalise most of these before the year is out. GPT has had a security buyback program in place. However, this is on hold as it is no longer accretive to the security price given the price is trading within five per cent of its net tangible asset value of $3.76. Securities were last bought under the program at $3.23. The group notes a better use of capital at the current price is to focus on acquisitions. GPT has been in the news recently with a bid for some of

MY W EEKLYPREVIE W. CO M . AU

23.indd 1

Best Value New Town Homes on the Sunshine Coast

Australand’s non-residential assets. The group added 1.2 per cent to its net gearing position in the September quarter and is likely to increase it further by year end if it fulfils its acquisition intentions – we predict gearing of 24.3 per cent on a look-through basis. With a broadbased expectation of higher values for quality commercial real estate in the coming 12 months, combined with low debt costs, we feel comfortable with this level of gearing. With Ord Minnett’s price target of $3.77 and a distribution yield of 5.5 per cent, GPT is at an attractive price level and represents a portfolio of quality Australian real estate.

Homemaker Centre new kitchenware shop now open in time for Christmas The Sunshine Coast’s much-anticipated Homemaker Centre on Maroochy Boulevard is helping to transform the former farmland into the area that’s destined to become the Coast’s new CBD. And now that the tenants are established and the shops have stocked their shelves, the centre is well and truly open for business. Among the well-known home furnishing retailers such as Harvey Norman, Domayne and Nick Scali is a name new to the Coast, kitchenware retailer 2Garnish. Proprietors Nicole Lovelock and Natisha Rice are newcomers to the kitchenware game. Lovelock has a background in retail banking and Rice in hairdressing, but they have set up shop in the Homemaker Centre offering all sorts and gadgets and devices for the Sunshine Coast’s foodies. “2Garnish is far more exciting [than other kitchenware shops] because it covers the basic kitchen essentials all the way through to tabletop decorations,” says Lovelock. The pair is looking forward to building a customer base in the region, which given the hype and anticipation around the centre opening, shouldn’t be too diff cult a task. So what are Lovelock’s three favourite items in the store? “The KitchenAid, Pizza Over and Salt ‘n’ Pepper products,” she says. Customers can choose their own favourite pieces at the Homemaker Centre on Maroochy Boulevard at Maroochydore.

COMPREHENSIVE CARE

MOKO buy makes sense

C

Development of the health hub at Kawana was a key factor in Mark Reynold’s decision to buy an apartment off the plan in the upmarket MOKO complex at Birtinya Island. And he loved the apartment complex and the area it is in so much he has changed jobs and joined the real estate office that sold it to him. He is now a sales and marketing consultant. Reynolds bought his threebedroom townhouse in March and says there were many reasons that attracted him to the complex and the area. “The apartments are in such a great location, it’s a hive of activity there now with the construction of the private and public hospitals and the health hub,” he says. “Timing is everything when it comes to property investing and I was keen to get in early before the market begins

oast residents will be able to access a range of new and expanded healthcare services when the Sunshine Coast University Hospital opens its doors in December 2013. Extensive planning and consultation has been undertaken to ensure the new facility will cater to the growing demand for hospital services across the region. The hospital is expected to service the Sunshine Coast and Gympie regional council areas as well as Wide Bay, and will mean about 10,000 patients each year will be able to receive complex

treatments locally instead of travelling to Brisbane. The hospital’s services will include a 24-hour tertiary level emergency service, including a specialised major trauma service. Some patients may still be diverted to Brisbane for treatment of conditions such as spinal injuries and severe burns. Comprehensive cancer services will include outpatients, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, oncology and an acute inpatient service. The maternity service will provide antenatal, birthing and postnatal care for women and will be integrated with paediatric services to provide a family-centred approach to care. The rehabilitation unit will help recovery in a range of areas including spinal injuries, acquired brain injury, neurodegenerative disease, amputation, falls and developmental conditions. Mental health services, renal medicine, allied health and outpatient services will add to the comprehensive health provisions of Coast residents. The range of allied health services at SCUH will be enhanced with the development of highly specialised clinical services and multi-disciplinary management of patients with complex healthcare needs.

involved

Mark Reynolds sites the construction of new hospitals and medical facilities at Kawana as a driving factor in his decision to buy and work in the area. to change and prices go up. “There is no doubt that I have purchased at the bottom of the market and we are now on the way up with thousands of new construction jobs being created thanks to the new medical precinct.” MOKO offers a choice of apartments with one, two and three bedrooms, townhouses and lofts. Located nearby are a convenience supermarket, waterfront restaurant and speciality shops.

Proudly supported by Sunshine Coast Council

Not sure if you should register your business to be eligible for the tender process? Here are a few stats to consider: The Sunshine Coast University Hospital will need to procure nearly 165,000 items to ensure its complete fit out.

BEER AND CAKE ANYONE?

I

n Berlin, before a meal, Robert Glaab recommends drinking a pilsner, a beer that also surprisingly goes well with fruit-topped short cake and a dollop of cream. Glaab is a beer sommelier, and from his perspective the drink known for its simple content of barley, hops, water and yeast is more than something to be served at a bar. The bitter taste of a pilsner, for example, “stimulates the stomach juices” before a meal, says the manager of his family’s brewery.

“Generally speaking, a light beer goes well with light meat and dark beer goes with dark meat,” says Glaab. Holding a glass of wheat beer up to the light, he remarks on its “strong, gold-yellow colour with a fine yeasty opaqueness”. Glaab uses a vocabulary similar to a wine sommelier’s, describing the beer’s “fruity aromas of banana and ripe apricot intermingled with light tones of clove, very fizzy and refreshing”. Then he goes on about its “soft and round body, discreet bitter notes at the finish, soft and harmonically balanced, full of character”. Glaab studied to become a beer sommelier at the Doemens Academy in Munich, which has offered the course since 2004. People from all over the world – about 90 per cent of them men – sign up for the two-week course, which costs 3000 euros ($3720). Subjects covered include finding the right beer to go with various foods, beer and health, beer and cheese, and even beer and chocolate. Glaab has little inhibition when it comes to pairing beer unconventionally, having identified the strawberry shortcake and cream combination as a student. DPA

PREVIEW Keen to escape the heat this summer for your local cinema, but not sure what to watch? Don’t fret: here’s a guide to what’s hot on the big screen this silly season.

FAMILY/ANIMATED Hollywood has ensured there are a couple of good options for the kids this school holidays that parents will enjoy too. At the top of that list is the Disney animated film Wreck-It Ralph. Featuring the voices of John C Reilly and Sarah Silverman, it’s about a bad guy in an arcade game who wants to be liked, and is knee-deep in delightful nostalgia for those who can remember Pac-Man and Super Mario. For a more traditionally themed animated movie, there’s Rise of the Guardians. Hugh Jackman gets laughs voicing a warrior-like version of the Easter Bunny. He, along with fellow guardians North (aka Santa Claus, voiced by Alec Baldwin), Tooth the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher), the mute Sandman and newly appointed guardian Jack Frost (Chris Pine), must unite to stop the evil spirit Pitch (Jude Law) and save the wonder, hope and dreams of children. If you were a fan of Coraline, you should love ParaNorman. Designed for older children (it will be too scary for the younger crowd), this 3D

stop-motion comedy thriller features the voice of Aussie actor Kodi Smit-McPhee as main character Norman. A misunderstood boy who can talk to the dead, he must take on zombies, ghosts, witches and grown-ups to save his town from an old curse. For those not keen on animation, check out Parental Guidance. It stars Billy Crystal as Artie, who agrees to look after his three grandchildren and instead of sticking to 21st century parenting methods, switches to the old-school means. Also starring Bette Midler and Marisa Tomei.

ACTION/ADVENTURE/ THRILLER Due to be released on Boxing Day is the highly anticipated The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Sir Peter Jackson’s return to Middle-earth since The Lord of the Rings trilogy ended in 2003. Starring Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, it follows the hobbit on an action-packed adventure with Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellen) and 13 dwarves to help return their kingdom. The

first of three Hobbit films, it also stars Aussies Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling sizzled on screen in Crazy, Stupid, Love and they’ve been paired again in Gangster Squad, about the Los Angeles Police Department’s fight to keep mafia-types from the East Coast (like Sean Penn’s Mickey Cohen) away from their city during the 1940s and ’50s. There’s been much criticism from fans about Tom Cruise being cast in Jack Reacher as the six-foot-five, 99-kilogram, ex-military cop made famous in Lee Child’s book series. But the author has told fans while not physically like Reacher, Cruise “nails it” and they should see the film before passing judgment. Based on the ninth novel, One Shot, it also stars Australia’s Jai Courtney, playing against type as a menacing baddie.

DRAMA The US is gearing up for the awards season, so you can expect to see some of the year’s best heavyweight dramas releasing over the next

couple of months as Oscar buzz builds. Think musical Les Misérables, starring Australians Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, The Impossible (set during the 2004 tsunami) starring Naomi Watts, and director Kathryn Bigelow’s follow-up to The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty, about the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Meanwhile, Ang Lee’s clever adaptation of the book Life of Pi is a gorgeous spiritual film, Hitchcock shows the making of Psycho with Anthony Hopkins starring as the iconic filmmaker, and Django Unchained is the latest from auteur Quentin Tarantino, reuniting the director with his Inglourious Basterds villain Christoph Waltz and Pulp Fiction star Samuel L Jackson.

COMEDY For fans of Glee or Aussie comedienne Rebel Wilson, check out the fun and silly Pitch Perfect, about an all-girl a capella singing group of misfits, who are competing to win the university nationals competition. Filled with pop hits, golden oldies and a talented cast, it’s infectious

with its fantastic performances and exuberance. For some more adult humour, there’s This is 40, the kind-of sequel spin-off to Knocked Up. Set several years after, it focuses on the lives of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann – writer/director Judd Apatow’s wife). More of an observational comedy about family life and marriage, it also features knockout performances from Mann and Apatow’s two daughters, alongside the likes of Jason Segel, Chris O’Dowd and Megan Fox. For a bit more romance and drama with your laughs, Silver Linings Playbook stars Bradley Cooper as a former teacher who moves back in with his parents (Robert De Niro and Aussie Jacki Weaver) after a stint in a mental institution. While trying to reconcile with his ex-wife, he meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), an intriguing girl with problems of her own. Babs is back. Barbra Streisand stars in The Guilt Trip as Joyce Brewster, whose son, Andy (Seth Rogen) takes her on a road trip while he tries to sell his latest invention. AAP

OUR 5 FAVOURITE LIP BALMS

L

ip balm is the one beauty product we hate to leave home without. Dry lips look and feel terrible, and if you don’t have your lip balm handy, licking your lips to keep them moist only makes matters worse. Its status as an essential addition to every make-up bag means most of us have a favourite lip balm we swear by. We did a quick whip around the MWP office and asked some of our female staffers to spill the beans on their favourite lip balms. We asked them which factors affect their choice of lip balm: taste, texture, smell, ingredients, effectiveness, packaging – or all of the above. Jemma: Lanolin “Nature has it right with lanolin. I’ve been using it since I was a child and no other lip balm comes close. You can use it on elbows and really dry hands in winter, so I use it as a hand cream sometimes too – have

you ever seen a shearer with rough hands?” Morgan: Lucas’ Papaw Ointment “I like that it’s cheap and it lasts for months. I also like that it doesn’t have a particular smell or texture, and there’s no distinct flavour. I also recently bought Maybelline’s Baby Lips Pink in Mixed Berry because I liked the packaging and it has a nice pink tint.” Sam: Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector “I have always been a fan of natural lip balms and in the past I have used a range of products – with varying degrees of success. I hate the tingle from tea tree and eucalyptus and some are just too heavy. For the last few years I have taken a tube of Clarins Natural Lip Perfector almost everywhere with me. I love it because it is really light but incredibly moisturising. I get very dry lips, particularly in winter, and this lip balm keeps my

lips well moisturised. And it is easy to apply – no greasy fingers from dipping into a little tub.” Di – Mukti Certif ed Organic Macadamia & Honey Lip Balm “Mukti’s lip balm works so well and I like the fact that it doesn’t have petroleum jelly in it. It’s very healing and soothing, and I tend to use it in winter more than summer. It’s also good underneath lipstick; if you put it on and then put your lipstick or lip gloss over it, it makes it last longer.” Jarna: Blistex “My favourite is probably Burt’s Bees Tinted Rose Lip Balm, but I have to admit for day-to-day use, I’m hopelessly addicted to plain old Blistex. I do worry about what’s in it, but I haven’t been able to kick the habit, or find a natural one that has that same tingly feeling. I honestly can’t go anywhere without it, and my partner is hooked on the stuff too!”

Jane Fonda instructed her plastic surgeon not to eliminate her wrinkles because she didn’t want to look “overdone”, according to Access Hollywood. The actress will turn 75 later this month and has been candid in the past about using cosmetic surgery. But she gave detailed instructions to her surgeon not to overdo it. “I made sure that they kept my lines. I didn’t want to lose my wrinkles, I just wanted to lose the bags under my eyes.” Fonda says eliminating signs of ageing completely would be “hypocrisy”, but says going under the knife prolonged her already successful career. “We do live in a time when, if you can afford a good doctor, you can have subtle plastic surgery, which probably bought me five more years as an actor,” she says. Fonda recently got back into fitness after the success of her 1980s workout tapes. She released a new yoga DVD

that focuses on light stretches to improve mobility. The actress has previously credited good genes and healthy habits with maintaining her youthful appearance. “I owe 30 per cent to genes, 30 per cent to good sex, 30 per cent because of sports and healthy lifestyle and for the remaining 10 per cent, I have to thank my plastic surgeon,” Fonda told Sirius XM Radio in New York City this week.

GET INTO GREEN SMOOTHIES

I

f you do a Google search for ‘green smoothie’ you’ll get close to four million search results. Clearly, people have embraced green smoothies with gusto. Most of us don’t get enough green leafy vegetables in our daily diet, so green smoothies are a quick, convenient and delicious way to pump your body full of nutrients – though some nutritionists warn against overdoing them due to the high oxalate levels in the greens. Depending on what you throw into the blender, your green smoothie will contain chlorophyll, vitamin A, vitamin C, sulfur and vitamin K, among other nutrients. Green smoothies give you an easily digestible burst of energy and can help purify the blood, reduce inflammation in the body, repair body tissues and give you glowing, healthy skin. Talk to anyone who has been drinking green smoothies regularly and they’ll tell you they soon begin to crave their daily glass of greens more than they do sugar. Seriously! You’ll need a 1000-watt blender

(or a special green smoothie blender like a Vitamix) to achieve a really smooth consistency. If your blender is not high-powered, chop the vegetables well before you add them. Most of us don’t like the taste of mushed up green veggies on their own, so adding fruit helps mask the taste of the greens. However, the higher the ratio of greens to fruit, the better, so you can gradually increase the vegetable content as you get used to the flavour. Fruits that go well in green smoothies are berries, bananas, pineapple, mango, kiwi fruit and oranges – let your taste guide you. You can use just about any green leafy vegetable, including spinach, kale, swiss chard, lettuce, broccoli and bok choy. Greens are easy to grow, so plant a few seedlings and before long, you’ll be picking the ingredients for your green smoothie straight from your garden. You can even add herbs like mint and parsley. Don’t blend your smoothie for longer than a minute, as the longer you blend, the more oxidation will occur, resulting in a loss of nutrients.

EASY GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE INGREDIENTS • 1 cup of greens • 2 cups of fruit (fresh or frozen) • 1 cup of water, coconut water or coconut milk

METHOD Place all ingredients into a blender and blend for 30 seconds to a minute and voila! Vary the liquid to achieve desired consistency.

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Peter Graham, President Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club

F

rom our early beginnings as the Mooloolah River Sports Club in 1919, the Mooloolaba SLSC has grown to become one of the most respected Surf Life Saving Clubs in Australia. We are the largest surf club in Queensland, with some 450 patrolling members spread over 18 patrol groups carrying out our core business: saving lives. Mooloolaba Surf Club has evolved from its beginnings in the sugar shed on the river in the early 1920s, to today’s magnificent structure, which houses surf life saving facilities and the supporters club. Before the creation of the supporters club, fundraising was done the traditional way, with raffles, collections, dances, concerts and flea markets. After fi re destroyed the clubhouse in

1979, the club was rebuilt and our first version of the supporters club was born. Through the 1990s, under the leadership of Doug Jewry, the supporters club grew and several renovations were undertaken to ensure the facilities met demand. Our latest renovation has come some 15 years after the last and has provided an opportunity to upgrade all electrical and mechanical infrastructure, provide an improved function space and gaming lounge, and improved facilities for the life saving members. These improvements will ensure financial viability of the Surf Club well into the future. Mooloolaba SLSC is a leader in life saving. The club won Queensland Surf Life Saving Club of the year in 2008 and 2011, and has provided support and equipment to other clubs in the region and the state. Mooloolaba is involved in School Surf Safe Programs, where members pass on their knowledge and skill to primary and secondary students who are undertaking life saving as part of their curriculum. As well as providing members with fitness and fun, Mooloolaba is also one of the top competitive clubs in Australia. Our surf sport tradition dates back to the early years, with success in many carnivals, throughout the 1940s and ‘50s, to today’s successful all-round competition team.

Mooloolaba has won the Oceans 38 series several times, finished second in the Australian Titles point score in 2010, and consistently finished top five other years. We have had recent success in all competitive arenas including Coolangatta Gold, Nutri-Grain Series, Oceans 38 and National and World Titles. Our highly skilled life saver and strong competitive team, combined with a contemporary supporters club, make Mooloolaba SLSC a great place to be. I am honoured to be President of Mooloolaba SLSC, one of Australia’s strongest and most vibrant Surf Life Saving Clubs. We invite you to come and take a look at the new club for yourself. Peter Graham

FROM PATROL TO PRESIDENT Mooloolaba surf club has a strong tradition of life members moving on to positions of responsibility. One of the longest serving presidents was popular local identity Doug Jewry, who received his Bronze Medallion in the club in 1959 and served 20 years as president, steering it through challenging times. He is pictured left competing in the belt race in the 1960s.

opened to create one large area. The new function room was christened in late September when Hot Business Events hosted a business breakfast with guest speaker Steven Bradbury. Due to the success of the event in the new space, Hot Business Events went ahead and booked a second breakfast, with Wayne Bennett as guest speaker. Both events attracted 220 people. Matheson says she is very pleased with the comments she received about the refurbishment during the two events. “The feedback from customers on those days was all very positive,” says Matheson. “Everybody is very excited about the renovations and the changes that have been made.” While the function room’s absolute beachfront location, with its large outdoor deck overlooking the water, makes it one of the Sunshine Coast’s most popular wedding venues, Matheson says the refurbishment means the club can now target a different market. “We are looking to cater for

corporate functions and special events,” she says. “While it’s a perfect venue for weddings, we’re now looking to hold more conferences and training seminars.” While the main areas are carpeted, there is an area with parquetry flooring that can be used as a large dancefloor, and the deck has been retiled. The deck has also been glassed in to accommodate inclement weather, but the glass panels are easily opened up to let the ocean breeze in on warm days. The function room takes up the entire top floor of the club, with the deck running the length of the club’s beach frontage. The function room has exclusive use of a bar and full kitchen facilities, and there is new audiovisual equipment including electronic screens and ceilingmounted projectors. Matheson says wedding spaces for 2013 are already filling up fast, and encourages anyone interested in the room to view the venue and secure their dates as soon as possible.

AS SHORT HISTORY OF THE CLUB

The 1950s were a the club

golden era for

resuscitation techniques, and equipment and guidelines for local government regarding bathing by-laws. It also provided reels and paid patrols during summer. After a tragic surfing fatality at Maroochydore on October 8, 1922, there were moves to step up beach safety at Maroochydore, Coolum and Mooloolaba. At a meeting of the Maroochy Shire Council held that year, Councillor J Lindsay moved that five guineas be given “for financial assistance towards the cost of patrolling the beach” at Mooloolaba that Christmas. Members of the Mooloolaba River Sports Club, encouraged by the local Progress Association, moved to provide the patrols. In 1922 it was decided to hold the annual aquatic sports day at Mooloolaba that Christmas, with proceeds going towards building boats for sculling and skiff racing. The following year, the sports

club became the Mooloolaba Sports and Life Saving Club. The first building used by the newly named club had been a derelict old sugar shed listed for demolition by the Progress Association. A new shed was constructed on the beach and officially opened on October 14, 1923, located about 80 metres south of the present club. The life saving club quickly became one of Mooloolaba’s main attractions and was described by the Chairman of the Royal Life Saving Society as “the most go-ahead club in Queensland”. By March 1930 there were 70 club members, 11 of them women. In 1936, talk began of building a new club house, and 12 months later the council approached the State Government for a subsidised loan of 400 pounds. Along with community fundraising, enough money was collected to build a new two-storey building, officially opened on March 26, 1939. It even had electric power!

ORIGINAL IMAGE COURTESY OF MAROOCHY LIBRARIES – HERITAGE LIBRARY PHOTOGRAPHER BILL ROBINSON

After the tumultuous war years of 1939 to 1945, the club entered a golden era – from 1945 to 1955 the small, comparatively unknown club rose to be Champion of Australia. As early as 1948, the need was obvious to extend the 1939 clubhouse, with the new building completed in 1954. By 1958 the Club acquired indoor bowls, darts, quoits, table tennis and scoop ball to entertain young members, and a year later, a television set was purchased. In 1960 a bunkhouse was built and in 1961/62, the building was first connected to the town water supply. In 1968 the clubhouse was extended and the Mooloolaba Midgets Surf Nippers Club was formed, with 130 boys aged seven to 14 signing up. Further additions were opened in 1974 – a function area with a bar, housing for the club’s jet boat, and a Branch beach patrol vehicle. In March 1979 fire destroyed

Circa 1966 much of the building. Within months, plans were underway to construct a new brick $500,000 club building. The 1990s were years of unprecedented prosperity for the club and today, it is one of the strongest and most vibrant surf life saving clubs in the country.

oolangatta Gold: The Coolangatta Gold is one of Australia’s most iconic sporting events and has been embedded in Australian culture since it was first run in 1982. Twenty years later, Mooloolaba SLSC stepped into the spotlight with an emphatic clean sweep of the 2012 race. Mooloolaba’s Ali Day joined the list of surf stars who have won this race, including Mooloolaba’s Michael King and Rhys Drury, by dominating the 46-kilometre torture test and leading from start to finish. To make the day even more special, Day was joined on the podium by Alex Tibbits in second and

Josh Minogue in third. This was the first time in the event’s history that any club had claimed the top three places. The significance wasn’t lost on Day who said, “This is the greatest achievement of my life. I’ve never really won anything this big before and to share it with my mates is something pretty amazing. I’ll die a happy man now.” Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain series: Mooloolaba SLSC is now a force to be reckoned with in the Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Ironman Series, boasting 10 of the 32 competitors across both the men’s and women’s events. Club head coach Michael King is the driving force behind this success,

UNDERSTATED LUXURY, SLEEK STYLE WORDS Peter Atkinson, AAP

Y

IMAGES AAP

ou would think when somebody builds a car as pretty as this one, they’d want to tell the whole world about it. Yet you can admire this sleek sedan from front to back and top to bottom with barely any mention of what it is. The only clue is the VW badges on the grille and boot and two tiny letters, ‘CC’, tucked away on the boot lid. For the record, it’s called a VW CC – the German maker’s latest foray into the luxury end of the passenger car market. It’s also, in many ways, their best-kept secret. The f rst version of the CC, launched

in Australia three years ago, didn’t wear any model branding at all. VW has always been a subtle, understated bunch, but this is ridiculous. It follows the same “four-door coupe” theory as Mercedes-Benz’s iconic CLS. The VW has much of the appeal of the Benz version but at less than half the price. It’s not the most expensive VW on the Australian market, but the CC probably f lls the role as the brand’s f agship machine in Australia. VWs have always been more about functionality than form, but the CC breaks that mould in a few ways.

Yes, it still offers the choice of a frugal turbo-diesel engine, as well as the f agship V6, all-wheel-drive version we’ve tested here. And yes, it’s technically roomy enough for f ve (there are three seats in the rear of this new model – compared with the two-seat conf guration of the previous model), with more than ample luggage space into the bargain. But the CC’s elegantly sloping lines – particularly that slinky C-pillar at the back – require some compromises when it comes to getting in and out for the back seat passengers. But this car was never designed

to be purely practical. The CC is the kind of car that empty-nesters might buy to indulge themselves, while still retaining the ability to stash a couple of friends in the back for a weekend getaway. The petrol-powered model we tested uses VWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-evolved 3.6-litre V6, combined with a slick-shifting six-speed DSG (doubleclutch automatic) transmission. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a refined drivetrain, with more than enough power (220 kilowatts) to back up the CCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sporty looks, while maintaining sensible fuel efficiency and the kind of easy driveability that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect of a luxury machine. In its second generation, the CC has earned a crisper, more elegant external appearance, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beneath the skin where perhaps the most significant changes have taken place. In keeping with its flagship role, the CC boasts a long list of electronic aids, which all but allow the car to drive itself. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something called Side Assist â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a blind-spot warning device â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Lane Assist, which uses cameras to sense when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re drifting out of your lane and a steering intervention system to gently steer you back. A radar-guided cruise control system will keep you cruising at a safe distance from the car in front, but also warn you if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re about to

collide with something ahead â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and apply the brakes. And a Driver Fatigue System monitors and memorises your driving style then senses if, during a long stint at the wheel, your characteristics change, emitting a series of alerts. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the very clever reverse-parking system, plus standard luxuries like high-end audio and front seats with a gentle massage function. A two-litre turbo-diesel engine is standard on the entry-level CC model, priced at a very reasonable $54,990. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as quick as the V6 but offers a fuel consumption figure of 5.7 litres per 100 kilometres. The V6, as you might expect, is considerably thirstier and dearer. Even at $70,000, this would be a formidable value proposition with its looks, performance and welter of gizmos. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably the sort of value youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d want to shout about. If you were that way inclined, of course.

Audi calls on Coast to donate Christmas gifts Audi Centre Sunshine Coast and Mission Australia have joined forces to add some Christmas cheer to children who are less fortunate. The Audi dealer network has set up Christmas Wishing Trees in dealerships around the country and are encouraging local communities to donate gifts through the website Simply Giving. Audi Centre Sunshine Coast dealer principal Scott Carse says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;While Christmas is a great time of year for most children and their parents, it can be one of the most difficult times of year for those families who are unable to provide food, shelter or clothing, let alone a gift for their children.â&#x20AC;? Carse is calling on the Coast community to get into the spirit of giving and back the Wishing Tree project, to help make Christmas a little easier for families who are doing it tough this year. The dealership last year purchased gifts and play equipment for disadvantaged children through Mission Australia and its Early Presents bought for the Learning Service centres around the country.

41 Jacksons Road, West Woombye

Offering a very useable, easy-care 4748 square metres, this quiet rural property will appeal to a wide range of acreage buyers, according to agent Steve Perry of RE/MAX Property Sales. The property is on a no-through road only five minutes from Woombye village, and includes a brick-veneer home with north-facing front verandah. The home has four bedrooms, including the master with ensuite, two living areas, fully ducted air-conditioning, a 1.7-kilowatt solar power system with seven panels, and two large water tanks. The property has easy access, a dam and 10 established fruit trees which have produced enough fruit for the current owners to operate a stall at the front gate most years. Also included in the sale is a one-year-old, 16.5-horse power Cox ride-on mower. Perry is asking $479,000 and says retirees through to young families should inspect – the local school bus will even stop at the front gate if required.

Dreaming of a home by the sand? Christmas may have come early for you this year, in the form of this well-priced Buddina duplex only a short walk from the beach. The two-bedroom unit was updated five years ago and features rendered internal walls, a modernised bathroom, a contemporary kitchen with tiled flooring and a lounge leading out to a north-facing outdoor living space. There are a fully fenced front yard, a single lock-up garage and an additional slabbed area that could easily be turned into another patio. The property is tenanted at $320 per week until February and is close to the future Kawana health precinct, so agent Luke Godwin from Team Godwin Real Estate says it is ideal for investors, or entry-level buyers after a hassle-free beachside lifestyle. The duplex is listed at $299,000.

ARIES March 21-April 20 With the moon in Aquarius and Uranus in Aries, you’re feeling restless and are in the mood for adventure. Don’t limit your peer group – socialise with others who are on your wavelength.

TAURUS April 21-May 21 You’ll make professional progress if you combine creative thinking with compassion towards a colleague who’s going through a tough time. Follow your instincts.

GEMINI May 22-June 21 The sun and retro Mercury emphasise the importance of communicating clearly in your daily life. The more you share your aspirations with loved ones, the more connected you’ll feel.

CANCER June 22-July 23 A relationship with a child or friend will be stressful today. Keep your cool, and don’t let them press your emotional buttons. Singles – a casual flirtation becomes intense.

LEO July 24-Aug 23 You’re keen to clear the air with loved ones and get something off your chest. Some will appreciate your honesty, while others may become irritated or distant. Take it in your stride.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 Your ruling planet Mercury is still in retrograde mode – until November 27. So be extra careful how you communicate, especially with noisy neighbours and fractious family members.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 Don’t let others discourage you from following your dreams. Jupiter encourages you to think big and act spontaneously. Friends and finances are a messy mix today so keep them separate.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 Scorpios can be stubborn and unforgiving. Are you hanging onto a grudge about a family member? It’s time to question old beliefs, and break free from the past – then move on.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 Spontaneous Sagittarius – you’re in the mood to speak your mind but others may misinterpret what you say. The more generous and tactful you are with loved ones, the better today will be.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 Work diligently towards goals that will be fulfilled in the future. Just because the results are modest now doesn’t mean they won’t be magnificent down the track. Persistence is the key.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 With Saturn and retrograde Mercury moving through your career zone, try to be more organised at work. You’re in a hurry but, when it comes to paperwork, avoid taking shortcuts.

PISCES Feb 20-March 20 If you can get the balance right between assisting others and helping yourself, then you’ll have a positive and productive day. Pay attention to the symbolism in your dreams.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Well the weekend is looking like it will be filled with summer waves, so zinc up and enjoy yourself. Saturday is looking like the pick of the days with four-foot swell and south-east winds coming over the top of it. The best spots will be the sheltered points or put up with a bit of cross chop and hit the beach breaks early. Hopefully Santa has read my wish list, as I placed an order in for five- to six-foot waves offshore on Christmas morning. We hope you have some fun on the beach over the holidays and enjoy a few coldies. All the best from the MWP team.

FISHING REPORT with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World

ESTUARY: Flathead are taking lures and live whiting on the drift from Maroochy Bar to Cotton Tree. Get quality bream from Goat Island to Twin Waters using fowl gut and mullet fillet. Whiting are on the rising tide using worms from Picnic Point to Chambers Island, and mangrove jack are loving the hot steamy days and are easy targets throughout all river systems. SURF: Sea bream are around the rocks at high tide from Alex Headland to Maroochydore life saving club – half a pilly and prawns are best for these fish. Flathead are taking pillies along Maroochy north shore. OFFSHORE: When conditions allow, close-in reefs at Coolum and the Blinker are working for squire, sweetlip and parrot using squid and cut baits. Barwon Banks is firing for snapper, pearlies and rosy job fish. FRESHWATER: Lake McDonald is returning bass and Mary River cod on small deep divers out from the boat ramp. Borumba has saratogas, bass and jew on shrimps and flies. Golden perch are taking shrimps and deep divers in The Sticks north of Kirkleigh, Somerset Dam.
