or most women, it’s not until you have a child that you realise just how hard it is to juggle your new job with your old. The desire to have a career as well as being a great mum is not a goal every woman shares – we are all so different. But for many of us the desire or need to stay connected to the workforce is so very strong. As I discovered when researching this week’s cover story, once they become mothers, many women give up the briefcase or work uniform, whether by choice, necessity or simply a lack of options. To be a working mother in Australia is harder than it should be. And I am not talking about a mother’s guilt over leaving her child in the care of others – that is a whole other cover story. For many families it’s just easier to have dad as the main earner. This week I have been talking to some

experts who’ve discovered that many families still feel a woman’s place is in the home. Is this a good thing or bad? Well only you know what is best for your family, but for many of the nation’s women it is hugely frustrating. And as a nation we lag behind many countries who have a lot more mothers participating in the workforce. It’s a timely issue in the lead-up to Mother’s Day and I’d encourage you to turn the page for more. Speaking of mums, on page 24 we have our Mother’s Day gift guide. Hopefully it will provide some inspiration, but if in doubt buy her f owers – the younger Pearson splashed out on a bunch for me last weekend. It was the best six dollars (from my wallet) he ever spent. Also in this week’s MWP, we have the f rst of our special arts features. It’s a section of the magazine we hope will be a regular one. Turn to page 26 for the f rst.

International Day of Families Back in 1993 the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed that May 15 would become the International Day of Families. Designed to be a day of celebration, it also helps raise issues concerning the globe’s families. In Australia we will also be celebrating National Families Week from May 15 to 21. This year’s theme for the week is ‘Families working together: getting the balance right’. Find out how you can get involved at familiesaustralia.org.au/familiesweek.

ne of the biggest decisions a new mother will make is whether she’ll return to the workforce and if so, when and how. And the juggle continues as our children reach school age. Just how do you raise a family and maintain a meaningful job or career? While the last century’s waves of feminism have brought sweeping social and f nancial changes in the lives of women and men, MWP discovers that when it comes to a woman’s participation in the workplace, many Australian families have given up the juggle. The f ndings have just come in from a study by the University of Queensland’s Janeen Baxter and Belinda Hewitt, who set out to explore the modern Australian woman’s place in the home. Speaking to MWP, Baxter, who is a professor with the School of Social Science, says the study “is part of an ongoing research program I have been working on for over 20 years. We are trying to understand patterns of gender inequality in the home. It’s a long program.” The researchers were keen to f nd out how Australian women’s experiences compare with those of our American cousins. “This paper was prompted by f ndings in the US that discovered the more women earned, the less time they spent on housework. We wanted to look at this. What we found is that it’s not how much they earn, but how much they earn compared to their partners [that determines how much housework women do].” Most working women are probably familiar with the internal dialogue – ‘I earn half as much as he does, so it’s only fair I do twice the housework to compensate’. Baxter says while the bargain we strike with our partners is unspoken and even unconscious, it is still very real. And it’s probably due to “our very high rates of part-time employment. Which is very different to the US.” Baxter links lower wages in the US to the increased participation of women in the workforce. But having a higher minimum wage isn’t necessarily a positive for Australian women. “Our minimum wages are higher and often for part-time work the dollar [per hour] rate is often higher,” she says. Because many of our workplaces don’t support parents to keep school hours and work full-time, the primary carer’s only option is to choose casual or part-time work. “We also do still have a strong male breadwinner culture,” Baxter adds. “That was our conclusion.” The researchers’ conclusions are backed by data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. An ABS media release from August last year reported that more than 90 per cent of the nation’s fathers with children under 15 years had jobs, most of them full-time.

GRESS So why are so many Australian women f nding themselves in domestic arrangements not too dissimilar to their mothers and grandmothers? “Although Australians are very supportive of women moving into paid work, when it comes to parenting, most men and women think women should be the main carer,” Baxter says. “It’s cultural and institutional – our organisations don’t cater for women, or men, to leave at 3pm.” Our experience might be different to the US, but it also differs to how they do it in European nations. “The Scandinavian countries have very developed work balance arrangements,” Baxter says. “In the more conservative European countries like France and Germany, they tend to rely on family [to help care for children]. There is a lot of variation. Australia and the UK seem to have similar patterns to each other. “We don’t have good work balance policies. And we tend not to pay for people to do our unpaid housework, compared to the US and countries like Singapore.” So should we be really concerned? After all, Australian working women are fairly well off? “I think we still have a long way to go,” Baxter says. “We do tend to believe the feminist revolution has been won and that everything is equal, for example, more women are going onto higher education now than men.” She adds that we even have higher rates of female graduates in some professions such as law. “So it is surprising and worrying that something goes on in households and particularly around the birth of children – both men and women still believe that women are the best carers, and in some cases that may be true, but not in all cases.”

“It’s how much they earn compared to their partners that determines how much housework women do” Janeen Baxter

FAST FACTS 1 million

More than Australian children under the age of

12 use child care

44.5% of Australian children under five years use child care, but that

29.6% of

f gure is just children under 12.

Compared with other states long child care is cheapest for Queensland’s parents – averaging

$309 per

week. SOURCE: 2013 REPORT ON GOVERNMENT SERVICES

So what can government do? “New policies like paid parental leave are steps in the right direction, so there is a role for government,” says Baxter. “But these are minimal changes. I think it has to be government, employers and it is a long-term cultural change in our mindsets about [mothers’ roles in the workplace]. Gwynn Bridge is CEO of Childcare Queensland, an association which represents about 70 per cent of the state’s long day care centres. She would add more affordable child care to that list. “I think [the cost of child care] def nitely has an impact on women returning to the workforce,” she says. She points to factors such as “the National Quality Framework, award increments, the cost of living and centres’ operational costs” as factors that have led to increases in the coast of child care. But she warns that even small fee increases can make the cost of child care too high for some mums, pointing to the Productivity Commission’s 2011 report that showed a one per cent fee increase led to a 0.7 per cent drop in hours that were worked by parents. “As an advocate for families we are talking to government constantly about affordability,” Bridge says. It’s a fragile balance of getting quality care that families can afford. Bridge adds, “Even if fees go up by a small amount, women will leave the workforce. It is the mum who tends to take the more part-time positions. I think women need more assistance to return to the workforce and they really need to be able to afford to put their children in care. It is an affordability issue that must be addressed.” Our leaders aren’t deaf to the concerns of the industry and working mothers. “Government is keen to increase female participation in the workforce,” Bridge says. “We need to have a good look at the barriers and how we can best meet them, and we know the cost is one of those barriers. It is not just one single component. But child care is the big issue. “And the other thing is, that early education part is vital for children’s education and socialisation, so even if women are not in the workforce they still want that early education.” Non-working mums are also affected by barriers to child-care access. So the next time you’re juggling a lunchbox and ironing school uniforms while putting on your make-up for work, take heart that you are not alone. And one day, at least, the kids will thank you.

Find out why Anxiety, Nervousness, and Panic Attacks happen to you and how to overcome it! Do you wake in the morning feeling anxious for no apparent reason? Do you f nd yourself with panic overwhelming you through the day when nothing is planned? You might feel nervous about going to work or when the phone rings, when there’s nothing to be worried about. This can go on for months or years, and will cause debilitating emotions, reducing your ability to work, and cause relationship problems at home. There are a number of underlying causes that contribute to symptoms including anxiety, nervousness, depression, or lack of excitement and motivation for life. Stress feels overwhelming, and little upsets cause feelings of anger. Palpitations, irritable bowel syndrome, foggy brain and poor concentration can also occur. Even though it seems psychological, and you may have issues in your life contributing to it, there are two very common physical problems that cause your symptoms to feel more extreme than they should feel. These affect the nervous system, causing your f ght/ f ight response to over-react. A malicious infection has been found to be a contributing factor in up to 90% of tested patients. It’s

picked up from overseas, or having contact with someone who has travelled which is only detected in specialised testing. This infection releases a toxin affecting the nervous system physically and mentally. It’s not often been associated with mental health, though studies show its impact on the brain. It’s passed on very easily, so more than one person in a household may suffer from similar symptoms. You will also f nd some people can carry this infection with no symptoms whatsoever, as it seems to act when there are other health or stress related problems. Often we’re able to correlate the f rst sign of symptoms, coinciding with a stomach bug causing diarrhoea or vomiting. It’s passed on quite easily through schools, day care centres, or places of work. It’s quite easy to treat, when done properly, and most symptoms are relieved as soon as the infection has been eradicated. Infections are just one part of a 7 step process for permanently treating anxiety and other mental health conditions. These steps have been proven with testing to improve the brain function immeasurably, without the help of medication.

To f nd out more, call the centre and arrange a free half hour consultation, or view the free webinar “7 Steps to Freedom from Anxiety & Depression” at www.advancedwellness.com.au. A webinar is simply a seminar that you can see on the internet.

TOURISM BOOST FOR COAST

S

unshine Coast Destinations has teamed up with Tourism and Events Queensland to launch an extensive enticement campaign targeting key domestic markets. The Make the Most of the Moment campaign, launched this week, aims to showcase the region as a destination where visitors can relax, rejuvenate and enjoy quality time with family and friends. Sunshine Coast Destinations marketing and brand director Veronica Rainbird says the campaign will feature television and online marketing targeting Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne as well as a print campaign in Toowoomba and select family, seniors and travel markets. “It’s the most extensive campaign the region has ever undertaken with Tourism and Events Queensland,” Rainbird says. “The reach of this campaign is the biggest reach we’ve ever had.” And she says with tough competition from international destinations such as Fiji and Vanuatu, they are hoping to promote the Sunshine Coast as a place where people can connect and create lasting

memories of having fun together. “This campaign is an emotive campaign.” Tourism minister Jann Stuckey says tourism research shows in 2012 the Sunshine Coast saw a 15 per cent year-on-year increase to 1.7 million Australian holidaymakers. “Campaigns like these in priority domestic markets are part of the $20 million Tourism Investment Strategy, helping to drive visitors to Queensland and support our tourism industry,” Stuckey says. The marketing campaign comes on the back of the launch of two new tourism trails last month – a food trail and an arts/culture trail. “The trails will attract visitors to the region with another reason to visit and increase their length of stay,” Rainbird says. “People can choose to do one experience on the trail or all and the trail is linked online to accommodation and activity deals. Five trails have been announced, including a nature trail, attractions trail and a coastal fun trail, with a markets trail still to be launched. To view the trails visit trails.visitsunshinecoast.com.au.

BIG WIN FOR LOCAL BUSINESS Local businesses have an opportunity to get involved in the biggest event to hit the Coast. Tough Mudder Australasia has put the call out to local goods and service providers to get involved in the August event, which is expected to attract tens of thousands of participants. Executives of the gruelling obstacle course recently met with key stakeholders, local tourism businesses and other suppliers to help provide the vast array of items required to make the event a success. Caloundra Chamber of Commerce executive off cer Leanne Layf eld says the extensive list of supplies required includes water, mobile off ces, marquees, fencing, security, skip bins, portable toilets, generators, portable ATMs, sound equipment, ice, lights, plastic cups and food and drink vendors. “The Caloundra Chamber of Commerce is actively involved in a working group to leverage the benef ts of this event for the local business community,” Layf eld says. “This includes the creation of other complementary events like a

welcome party to boost the attractiveness of coming for the weekend rather than just drop in, do the event and then leave again.” Caloundra MP Mark McArdle says Tough Mudder will inject millions of dollars into the Sunshine Coast over the next f ve years and showcase the region to Australia and the globe. He says it is a perfect opportunity for businesses to capitalise on the event. Businesses interested in supplying Tough Mudder should email Kellie at Sunshine Coast Council’s Business Partnering Program team at kellie.holdsworth@sunshinecoast. qld.gov.au.

NEW AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR CALOUNDRA RENTERS More affordable housing is available on the Coast with a new 66-unit residential complex off cially opened in Caloundra last week. Housing and Public Works minister Tim Mander says the Churches of Christ Care project at Cooma Terrace is important to help reduce more than 1700 households on the Coast’s social housing waiting list. The new complex has been tenanted with applicants from the state’s housing register and rents are capped at 30 per cent of a tenant’s income. Mander says most people on the waiting list are single and have high needs so detached suburban homes are not the best option.

risbane Airport has been rated the best Australian airport for overall quality of service, according to a report by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). The consumer watchdog looked at quality, prices, costs and prof ts related to aeronautical and car parking services at Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney airports. The report found that prof ts are up but service at Australian airports has fallen across the board, with Sydney Airport the busiest and worst performing. Its latest Airport Monitoring Report found a decrease in on-time f ights over the past 10 years, and warned that congestion will increase without extra investment. “It is apparent that continued growth in passenger numbers at most airports is placing pressure on existing aeronautical infrastructure, contributing to lower service standards,” ACCC chairman Rod Sims says. “More investment is required to avoid excessive congestion, and ensure that the needs of Australia’s travellers can be adequately accommodated.” Sims says Sydney Airport, which received 36 million passengers through its doors and was both the busiest and lowest-rated airport in 2011-12, was “perhaps of greatest concern”. But in a statement Sydney Airport says the report found passenger satisfaction was at a 10-year high and adds it had

invested more than $2 billion in airport-related infrastructure in the past decade. “In fact, Sydney Airport was the only airport to have increased its passenger rating this year, a result of the investments we’ve made to add capacity, streamline check-in, screening and arrivals processes and add value for passengers, including free WiFi and improved terminal facilities,” Sydney Airport CEO Kerrie Mather says. Adelaide was rated the slowest airport but had the cheapest hourlong parking at $4, while Sydney Airport’s hour-long parking was the most costly, at $16. AAP

EU TO BAN BEE-HARMING PESTICIDES

T

he European Commission will impose the world’s first continent-wide ban on three pesticides which environmentalists say are killing the bees that pollinate Europe’s crops. Monday’s decision was a blow to the two chemical companies – Bayer of Germany and Switzerland’s Syngenta – which turn prof ts from the products they say are not to blame for the sharp decline in the bee population. At the vote in Brussels 15 European governments backed a two-year suspension on use of the three pesticides but did not reach the required majority under EU rules, thus handing the f nal decision to the Commission. “I pledge to do my utmost to ensure that our bees, which are so vital to our ecosystem and contribute over 22 billion euros annually to European agriculture, are protected,” said EU health commissioner Tonio Borg after the ballot. From December 1 the pesticides will be banned from use on some crops and during seasons crucial for the survival of bees. The insecticides – imidacloprid and clothianidin produced by Bayer, and thiamethoxam by Syngenta – are used to treat seeds, and are applied to the soil or sprayed on bee-attractive plants and cereals. Bees account for 80 per cent of plant pollination by insects, which is vital to global food production. Without them, many crops would be unable to bear fruit or would have to be pollinated by hand. “Today’s vote makes it crystal

clear that there is overwhelming scientif c, political and public support for a ban,” said Marco Contiero of Greenpeace. Countries opposed to the ban, including Britain and Hungary, failed to muster enough support to block the Commission’s proposed moratorium. Germany, which in a previous vote had abstained and was under heavy pressure from pharmaceutical f rms and farmers to f ght the proposal, also voted in favour. Both Bayer and Sygenta, the top player in the global agrichemical market, reject as f awed the f ndings of studies saying their products are to blame for falling bee numbers. Bayer CropScience’s Richard Breum said in a statement that it remained convinced the insecticides were “safe for bees if the products are applied according to instructions” and warned that the EU ban would be “a setback for technology, innovation and sustainability.” John Atkin of Syngenta said the ban “is based on poor science and ignores a wealth of evidence from the f eld that these pesticides do not damage the health of bees”.

WEIGHT WATCHERS STILL A WORLD FAVOURITE AT 50 PREVIEW Fad diets come and go, but the commonsense approach of Weight Watchers has stood the test of time.

I

t all started in 1961 in Jean Nidetch’s living room in New York City. A few overweight friends met each week to talk and troubleshoot their way through a sensible but strict diet. Soon the group grew to more than 40 women. By May 1963, the group had hundreds of members and a name: Weight Watchers. Nidetch, who turns 90 this year, sold the company in the 1970s. Today, Weight Watchers boasts more than 1.3 million members who attend 45,000 meetings worldwide each week. It also enjoys endorsements from celebrities like Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Simpson. In the beginning, it cost only about $2 a week and all you got was that strict, sensible diet sheet. Now Australians can expect to pay $68.95 for a monthly pass, and a lot more if you can’t resist the many books, cooking and measuring gadgets, scales, f tness tools and all manner of convenience foods that bear the Weight Watchers corporate logo. You’re still encouraged to go to meetings, but they can be accessed online. It’s still a sensible plan, emphasising sound nutrition and exercise. But the details have evolved dramatically. Gone are the days when dieters had to eat specif c foods like f sh and liver (cooked without fat), and precise portions

of skim milk (powdered, if you’d prefer). Now the message is f exibility. Weight Watchers members can eat and drink virtually anything – provided they keep careful track of their intake, follow the good-health guidelines and don’t exceed their daily limit of what’s now called Points Plus. And they can ‘buy’ more food by increasing activity, which also must be carefully tracked. This year, Weight Watchers celebrates its 50th anniversary with countless kilos lost – and sometimes gained and lost again – and lives altered. To get a glimpse of how Weight Watchers and its members have changed over the years, we recently checked in with Audrey Northup, a US resident who is one of the group’s earliest, and

By 1971, Northup was fed up with being fat. She had been on diets for more than three decades – since she was three. By the time she was 11, Northup weighed more than 90 kilograms

longest-lasting, success stories. It has been decades since her life-altering weight loss, but she still works at it every day, inspiring others as she goes. By 1971, Northup was fed up with being fat. She had been on diets for more than three decades – since she was three. By the time she was 11, Northup weighed more than 90 kilograms. When she found Weight Watchers, she set a goal to lose 45 kilograms. Northup remembers eating f sh f ve days a week and liver once a week – which was what the plan required back then. The diet forced her – a farm girl raised on heavy cream – to switch to skim milk and

eliminate fat from her diet. Exercise wasn’t part of the plan. The support she got from fellow members who cheered when she lost weight, and encouraged her when the scale wouldn’t budge, worked for Northup. A year after joining, she had surpassed her goal, dropping 56 kilograms. In 1976, still slim and weighing in regularly (ever a pillar of the program), Northup was invited to share her story in Weight Watchers magazine. “It was a highlight in my life which I’ll never forget,” she says. On the cover, she wears a plunging red jumpsuit with the conf dence of a model. Inside, she’s shown in equally glamorous

garb alongside ‘before’ photos that seem to belong to another woman entirely. Now 76, Northup is still slender and makes sure of it by weighing in every month. She has maintained a 52 kilogram weight loss and still keeps a journal of her food and exercise (known as ‘tracking’ in Weight Watchers parlance). She loves to share her story with a new generation of members, though she prefers the restricted plan of the early days. “There are too many food choices now, many more eating situations,” she says. “And portion sizes are so big. I think it’s harder to lose weight now than it was when I lost my weight.” AAP

SHARING THE LOAD ISN’T FOR EVERYONE Those looking to lose weight now have more choice than ever in terms of companies and plans, exercise regimes and diet groups. From huge multinationals like Weight Watchers to a handful of friends meeting to support each other’s’ goals, the weight loss group is a huge industry. Is a group right for you? The pros make it an attractive option. Being with others who are struggling with the same issues can help you feel like you’re not alone. Sometimes a group can together come up with more ideas about weight management. Feeling understood by those around you is psychologically empowering, and if you falter, the group

is there to provide encouragement. But there are downsides. The competition that may develop in a group can distract you from learning to manage your weight for a lifetime. It’s not your weight loss compared to others’ that matters most, but how well you learn the behavioural changes required to do the job well for yourself. The group may not match the pace you require. Some people need more time to make changes and will feel pressured to go at a pace that’s doesn’t f t them well. Others might outstrip the group’s pace. You can become overly dependent on the group. Some people won’t exercise on days their ‘buddy’ can’t join them. Conf icts between group

members can hurt the positive aspects of group support. Or members who get too close can get distracted from the original purpose of the group. How do you know if a group approach will work for you? If you like being part of a group, and are open to the feedback of others, and if you lack a network of people who support your goals and you’re unlikely to become overly competitive with, or dependant on, others, you might want to try a group approach to managing your weight. But remember a group is only one of many tools you should use. And if it doesn’t work out, move on from the group, but not your goals.

MAKING ART ACCESSIBLE

Gallery Beneath serves up a diverse menu Mooloolaba’s Gallery Beneath gathers work from a diverse group of artists. Showing some of the best of Australia’s established artists and studio crafts, it also has a few lesser known but emerging artists who, the gallery owner believes, are at the early stages of a promising career. Owner Claire Torance says, “For me it is always a joy to view paintings, to see how artists interpret their chosen subjects. There is no medium other than painting that gives an artist such extraordinary range of expression. “I love going into a home where the walls are f lled with paintings. Art warms your home, it expresses our taste, our individuality. It can evoke memories of people and places. Fill your home with what appeals to you, what makes you feel uplifted.” Torance adds, “In the words of

Wolfgang Lammle, one of Gallery Beneath’s great artists, ‘While the artist is the chief, the gallery sets the table and serves the food and when the guest enjoys the menu everyone is happy and content.’”

here can locals go to get their art fix? Sunshine Coast Council gallery curator Nina Shadforth has the answer. Welcome to My Weekly Preview’s f rst arts feature. There are so many galleries scattered around our region, but have you ever wondered what a regional gallery is compared to many of the local privately owned commercial galleries, say in Maleny, Montville or Noosa? Our local commercial galleries offer an intimate guided retail experience and excellent knowledge about the artists they represent, with secondto-none follow-up service. Regional galleries on the other hand, are larger, public venues that are owned, managed or

auspiced by a local government organisation, in our case, Sunshine Coast Council. Considering how large our region is, there is a good spread of regional galleries for Sunshine Coast residents to choose from, according to where they are located in the region. There are currently three regional galleries on the Sunshine Coast. In the north is Noosa Regional Gallery, Tewantin, south is Caloundra Regional Gallery, Caloundra and inland is the Butter Factory Arts Centre, Cooroy. Although, not classif ed as a regional gallery, there is a fourth public venue, the University of the Sunshine Coast Gallery, Sippy Downs. The regional galleries act as platforms to present and communicate new and creative art forms and ideas supporting local arts and creative initiatives, as well as bringing to the region exhibitions and programs from other places that members of our

community may not otherwise have access to. The Sunshine Coast’s regional galleries offer many ways to experience and learn about the visual arts, through a suite of engaging programs specif cally developed to

f oor talks and tours, where you can meet and connect with artists and curators. As gallery curator programming for each of the regional galleries, I believe it is our role to present a diverse and ever-changing exhibitions program, enabling accessibility of a whole spectrum of visual art forms to visitors and residents of the Sunshine Coast, and whether you are a connoisseur of art or a complete novice, there is something for everyone within the annual exhibition program. To f nd out more about exhibitions and programs, log on to galleries.sunshinecoast. qld.gov.au or visit one of the gallery venues and ask our friendly volunteer attendants. Entry is free.

The Sunshine Coast community is invited to attend the first musical to be staged in Matthew Flinders Anglican College’s new Performance Centre. MP Steve Dickson will open the Flinders Performance Centre on May 23 at 6.30pm. He will join state and local dignitaries who will gather to celebrate the new state-of-the-art venue. The off cial proceeding will be followed by the opening night of the college’s 2013 musical Guys & Dolls. Premiered on Broadway in 1950, the show has a romantic plot, sweet and sassy humour and unforgettable musical numbers. To bring all this to life, the Flinders’ production team has assembled a quality cast who are honing their singing, dancing and acting talents to present a f rst-class rendition of this classic. But before the curtain goes up, string ensembles, brass fanfares and

an off cial opening ceremony will take place on stage. And it’s not just parents and connections to the school that can enjoy the event – all members of the community are invited to come along and take part in the celebrations. The Flinders Performance Centre not only provides f rst-rate drama and music facilities for students, but also offers the wider Sunshine Coast community a new performance venue featuring f exible seating options, outstanding acoustics, and state-of-the-art facilities and technologies. The Centre, which is located in Buderim, caters for many different events,

such as musicals, cabaret performances and formal dinners. Guys & Dolls will hit the Flinders Performance Centre stage on May 23, 24 and 25 and tickets are now on sale. Find out more and book attrybooking.com/44643.

PREVIEW Hot 91.1 FM breakfast host Todd Widdicombe gives his opinion on the best brews of the week.

I

’ve been thinking a lot lately about the Mayan Calendar hullabaloo of late last year and how the world was supposed to cease to exist and yet we all survived, and I can’t help but feel we owe our salvation to beer. Stay with me and picture this: It’s Friday arvie and there’s a Mayan. His name’s Gavin and he’s working hard at the calendar factory and his buddy comes up and says “Hey Gav, Friday knock off’s time, u wanna beer mate?” And Gavin the Mayan says, “Oh I’m working on this calendar, but yeah, I guess if I don’t f nish it won’t be the end of the world.” I know right, saved by beer yet again. Of course, I always suggest you drink responsibly my friends, and do everything in moderation. My doctor recently told me to watch my drinking – so now I knock back a coldie in front of the mirror. In fact, I was out with mates last weekend and because I’d had a few, I took a bus home. It might not sound like a big deal, but I’ve never driven a bus before. Jokes aside, life is far too short to drink cheap beer and this week’s brew

is testament to that. I feel like this is deja vu, like we’ve been here with this drop before. Oh and just quickly, I have an explanation for deja vu; methinks it’s fully when God reckons something’s so funny he has to slow it down and rewind it to play to his mates. The mystery of deja vu solved, yeah? Anyway, we’ve done plenty of James Squire beers in the past and they’re all ace, (bar the Stow Away IPA, but there’s always one in every family right?). The JS 150 Lashes Pale Ale is truly one of the grousest beers around. Now I’ve got mates who swerve this one like Clive Palmer swerves salad, but I reckon it’s a treat. This little ripper is a real crispf nishing cloudy style pale, with stone fruit aromas mixed with a refreshing passionfruityness (yeah I know it’s not a word), plus a clean, smooth f nish wo that th hat makes it both enjoyably tasty and very veery easy to put away. I recommend it with everything – Friday Night Footy, Sunday F barbecues, breakfast. Sure, it’s no bar b Coopers Pale Ale, but it’s a red hot Co second. I’m all over this baby like se stink on a backpacker. I give the st 150 1 Lashes Pale Ale four out of f ve thumbs up. James Squire 150 Lashes Pale Ale 345 ml Bottle, 4.2% AV North Shore Tavern

S

ports utility vehicles evolve in all sorts of ways. Some, like the Audi Allroad and Volvo CrossCountry, start out as fancy station wagons and get some all-wheel-drive grip and extra ground clearance to sit at the ‘soft’ end of the SUV market. Others are designed as SUVs right from the outset, including models as diverse as BMW’s X5,

Subaru’s Forester, Porsche’s Cayenne and Mazda’s CX-5, which basically form the middle ground. And then there’s the wilder side – SUVs that start their lives as utes. Holden’s new Colorado 7 is such a vehicle – basically a wagon variant of the tough-as-teak Holden Colorado ute. It’s not the f rst SUV to be created this way. Mitsubishi’s popular Challenger is effectively

a Triton ute with wagon built on the back. I guess they count for the ‘utility’ part of the sports utility vehicle (SUV) moniker. The Colorado has proven a highly successful brand for Holden – thankfully so, as it took the place of one of Holden’s most popular badges, the Rodeo, after a falling out between Holden and continued page 34>

FEATURES ESP with ABS and brake assist, front and side curtain airbags for all three rows of seating; cruise control, hill-start assist and descent control; electronic dual-transfer case with shift-on-the-f y 4WD system; limited slip differential; leather trim; climate control airconditioning, electric windows and mirrors, reversing camera and rear park assist, alloy wheels. THIRST 9.4L/100km (off cial f gure). VERDICT A tough competitor in the fair-dinkum part of the SUV market. BOTTOM LINE From $46,990; as tested $50,490.

its partner Isuzu, which built the Rodeo. Now, the Colorado 7 has allowed Holden to kill two birds with one stone, f lling a gap in its model line-up that has existed virtually since it retired another car built by Isuzu – the faithful Jackaroo – about 10 years ago. The Colorado 7, like its ute sibling, is built in Thailand. The two vehicles share the same assembly line and most of the same underpinnings, including a Thai-built turbo-diesel engine and six-speed auto transmission. It gets a different suspension set-up from the ute, which Holden says is “biased towards passenger comfort”, but it still describes the Colorado 7 as “heavy duty” – not a term you’ll often hear from someone trying to sell you an SUV. It’s an apt description in this case. You get the feeling the Colorado 7 will take you just about anywhere you care to point it and soak up just about anything a big family could dish out. Holden calls it the company’s “f rst serious off-roader in more than a decade”. There’s no doubt about the Colorado’s off-road credentials – a part-time four-wheeldrive system with dual transfer case, plus decent ground clearance, gives it plenty of go-anywhere capability. A shift-on-the-f y 4WD system, limited slip differential and Descent Control System are part of a competent off-road arsenal.

The Colorado will be offered in two trim levels – the entry-level LT (from about $46,000) and our test machine, the f agship LTZ ($50,490). Frankly, even in top-spec form, the Colorado didn’t make the greatest f rst impression. The interior is plasticky and a bit grey-looking, the engine clatters upon start-up (as many diesels do) and the ride, despite the adjustments, still tends to ref ect its ute heritage. But the longer we drove it, the more we became attached to this robust big machine. The 2.8-litre, four-cylinder Duratec turbodiesel isn’t the most ref ned one of the bunch, but it’s gutsy and reasonably fuel-eff cient. Average consumption of just 9.4 litres per 100 kilometres makes it an attractive family people mover.

It sits sturdily on the road, turns into corners surprisingly well and offers a generally competent, vice-free ride. Safety is well catered for, with Electronic Stability Control, dual front and full-length curtain airbags (which extend to the third-row seats), reversing camera and parking assist as standard on both models. Alloys, fog lamps and aluminium roof-rails are also standard kit – and if you fork out the extra for the LTZ you can enjoy leather trim, six-way electric driver’s seat, power-fold mirrors and single-zone climate control air. Bluetooth connectivity complements the USB and iPodfriendly audio system. It offers massive amounts of interior space, and, importantly, a 3000 kilogram towing capacity. Cargo space is decent, although the third-row seats appear as something of an afterthought and, while they fold forward quickly, tend to compromise your luggage space when not in use. Let’s be honest. The Colorado isn’t going to drag too many buyers out of BMW or Lexus showrooms, nor will everyone prefer it to Holden’s smaller, slicker Captiva, but it’s not meant to, either. It’s aimed at those with a no-frills approach who want a car that’s reliable, fairly frugal and probably close to unbreakable. And the Colorado 7 delivers that. It’s the SUV for ute-lovers.

The new Golf has just arrived. Why drive anything else? Take the new Volkswagen Golf for a test drive and you’ll discover it’s in a class of its own. Redesigned from bonnet to boot, the Golf comes with a new range of powerful and fuel-efficient TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines, eco-friendly BlueMotion Technology, advanced safety systems including 7 airbags and Driver Fatigue Detection plus Bluetooth® Connectivity as standard. It’s even been awarded World Car of the Year 2013. Test drive one today at Garry Crick Volkswagen

he 2013 national Volvo Roadshow rolls into town this month, giving Coast residents and businesses the opportunity to experience the latest model Volvos. Pacif c Motor Group dealer principal Craig McPherson says the vehicles will be on the Coast until May 13, providing a great opportunity for locals to enjoy a day out. “We are particularly calling on local business to take advantage of this opportunity by taking their clients or colleagues out for a day,” McPherson says.

“One business to take advantage of this opportunity last year was Dr Michael and Cheryl Ryan from Maroochydore’s Medicine on Second, who took the Volvos out to explore some of the boutique food destinations in the hinterland with some colleagues.” Cheryl Ryan says her clients and colleagues enjoyed participating in the day – a great opportunity to relax and test drive a range of luxury vehicles in the company of friends. “We didn’t know a lot about the Volvo range, but we were really surprised at the quality and the many great features of the vehicle,” she says. “Everyone got to drive a vehicle at various stages throughout the day and then we compared notes over some f ne food in the hinterland.” She says it’s a great way for men and women to participate and a lot more enjoyable than corporate activities like golf. To participate in the Volvo Roadshow, call Bryce Robinson on 5458 9736.

RACQ launches road safety campaign The RACQ has announced a new safety program aimed at parents to help combat the number of child-related deaths on Queensland roads. RACQ Education Off cer Karina Halliday says the Kids & Cars program was created in response to growing calls from parents, grandparents and carers for advice on how to reduce the risk of children being injured or killed around cars. “At least one child every week in Australia is trapped or crushed in a vehicle-related incident,” she says. “It’s the most frequent cause of injury death in children after drowning, and more often than not the driver responsible is a member of the child’s family. “Parents are all too aware of the dangers but very few know how to begin teaching their children how to be safe around cars.” The Kids & Cars program will cover a variety of topics including choosing and installing the correct child seat, driveway safety and how

to teach your child about road safety. The announcement coincided with the release of an RACQ YouTube video about how to correctly install a child’s car seat. Halliday says CARRS-Q research found almost 25 per cent of children under seven years of age were inappropriately restrained. “The most common mistake made by parents is thinking their child has outgrown their child seat or booster seat,” she says. To book a free group presentation of the Kids & Cars program, contact RACQ’s Community and Education team at roadsafetyeducation@racq.com.au.

ARIES Mar 21-Apr 20 Rams can be selfish souls but helping others is the way you’ll get the most out of the weekend. The Pisces moon encourages you to focus less on yourself and more on others.

TAURUS Apr 21-May 21 With Venus vamping through your sign, it’s the perfect weekend to flutter your eyelashes – or flex your pecs – and ask for what you want. Then sit back and reap the rewards.

GEMINI May 22-Jun 21 Saturday is super for artistic endeavours and creative thinking. Whereas nervous energy is high on Sunday. If you don’t pace yourself, then you’ll be exhausted by the end of the weekend.

CANCER Jun 22-Jul 23 Saturday suits all sorts of social pursuits. If family or friends are placing too many demands on you on Sunday, then don’t be afraid to set some firm boundaries and say no.

LEO Jul 24-Aug 23 There may be some tension between keeping colleagues happy and fulfilling all of your family responsibilities. Single lions – look for a lover who has emotional depth.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 Attached Virgos – keep the communication flowing with your partner, and don’t take them for granted. Singles – look for love with a caring Capricorn or a passionate Piscean.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 Letting finances take their own course may be tempting but you need to keep up to speed with money matters. If you are responsible and frugal, it will pay off down the track.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 The Piscean moon is travelling through your creativity/friendship zone, so projects and people will be hard to pin down. The more flexible you are, the better the weekend will be.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 You’re in the mood to socialise this weekend but take care when communicating with others. You’re keen to help, but make sure your generosity doesn’t end up as empty promises.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 Can you figure out a problem that has family or friends stymied? They’re expecting you to come up with the goods so get creative. With Venus in your love zone, romance is in the air.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 It will be difficult to juggle work and relationship responsibilities this weekend – and don’t promise more than you can actually deliver. A chat with a loved one keeps things in perspective.

PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 With Neptune – your ruling planet – moving through your sign, it’s time to be the real you, as you connect with people in your local community who share your passions and peccadillos.

SURF REPORT with MWP’s man in the water

Well it is looking like a fun weekend ahead with a bump in swell on Saturday with good early conditions. Sunday will be smaller but has a WSW wind predicted with a dash of sunshine! Woo hoo! The water still feels warm to me so no need for the full wettie. I can also report that Uluwatu has a lovely four-foot swell and offshore conditions for the weekend should anyone be heading that way. If you are thinking of heading to Indo for a trip there is a lot on offer. But if you want a once-in-a lifetime experience why not hook up with the crew from World Surfaris? Remember, once ya dead, ya dead, so get amongst it!

FISHING REPORT with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World

ESTUARY: Quality bream are on the rising tide from Maroochy Bar to Twin Waters, and Mooloolaba rock walls to trawlers in Mooloolah River with whitebait and fowl gut the best baits. Whiting and f athead are taking yabbies and live baits all through the river systems. Catch cod and jew at the motorway bridge using big plastics. SURF: Tarwhine and bream are around the coffee rock at Maroochy main beach using fowl gut and pillies. Get tailor just on dark at Pincushion, with dart, whiting and f athead along North Shore. OFFSHORE: Mackerel are feeding on bait schools just off Currimundi. The Gneerings are returning squire, sweetlip and parrot on squid. Barwon Banks is good for snapper, pearl perch and rosy job f sh.
