Editor’s letter

M

ention the Big Top shopping centre and most people have a story or memory of the collection of shops that was the place to be before The Sands (which was later transformed into the Plaza) opened its doors. People would come from all over the Coast to the Big Top, or Butts as the old locals sometimes still call it, to grab their groceries and pick up whatever else they needed from the other specialty shops, before weaving their way past the buzzing crowd back to the car park. Those days are well and truly behind us, and for many years now the old centre has been looking tired and very empty – the last time I was there the only buzz I could hear as I walked through the centre was from the overhead f uoro lights in Woolies. The Big Top is f nally getting the revamp we have so been waiting for, and the old site so deserves, and this week we are taking a look at the cafes, restaurants and bars that are leading the charge. MWP is in Ocean Street, where Solbar will be joined by plenty of other cool places to hang. We are about to be very spoilt for choice, which is great news for those locals who have been crying out for decent food and entertainment venues. Want to get a sneak peak? Head over the page to see what’s in store. This week we also have plenty of other news of the local variety, which starts on page 18, as well as stuff to keep you entertained in other parts of the Coast – over in my time on page 30. There is also plenty of property, fashion, home style and much more. So, let’s go shopping! Jemma Pearson

Streets ahead It was the Sunshine Coast’s first shopping centre, and now after years of uncertainty, the Big Top and adjoining Ocean Street are the sites of a fresh food revolution set to redefine the region.

T

he Ocean Street and Duporth Avenue precinct of Maroochydore has been languishing in uncertainty for decades. Situated on the eastern fringe of the designated Principal Activity Centre and where business meets the beach, an appetite for change is in the salty sea air. Driven by the $20 million redevelopment of the iconic Big Top Shopping Centre and a committed group of local businesses, this precinct is setting itself up to be the heart and soul of the Sunshine Coast. Maroochydore Revitalisation Association (MRA) president James Birrell says it is an exciting time to be part of a shift towards providing an authentic and alternative experience. “This precinct has always had a magical connection that comes with being on the Maroochy River and Pacif c Ocean,” he says. “But for the past decade or so, it has lacked direction. There has been no community spirit to drive it forward. “When I returned to the Coast after studying interstate, I was missing the culture and entertainment that you get in larger cities. This inspired myself and other business owners to get together to create experiences that we wanted – to foster an environment full of possibility and the kind of events and activities that we would be interested in going to.” Birrell and fellow business operators formed MRA in October 2012. Today it boasts more than

stores and featuring up to seven new dining and entertainment venues. While construction is well underway on the internal retail and market space, due to open later this year, stage one is nearing completion with a mix of multicultural and musical f avours preparing to open on Ocean Street from Easter. Solbar will be leading the entertainment agenda with its relocation to the Big Top, allowing it to attract bigger touring acts as well as continuing to showcase the region’s best artists. The larger venue will continue to cater to all styles of artistic expression, with cutting-edge sound design, its trademark warm atmosphere and the introduction of food from breakfast until late. Dimitris Limnatitis is one of the MRA founders and a key driver behind Nights on Ocean and Ocean Street World Music Festival. He is also the owner of Solbar, which opened in Easter 2011, and The Piano Bar which opened in Easter 2012. This Easter, Limnatitis and partner Charlene Dellaway plan to open their third Ocean Street venue – a South-American-style restaurant called Machu Picchu. The kitchen will be run by a celebrity chef from Brazil, to ensure authentic f avours are infused through the decor, menu, drinks list, music and atmosphere. According to Limnatitis, the redevelopment of the Big Top was the catalyst needed to make Ocean Street a serious alternative destination for people of all ages who were seeking a cultural experience. “Nights on Ocean provided people with a taste of the precinct’s potential, and they have responded strongly,” he says. “The Coast has been crying out for venues where locals can come and enjoy great live music and food in a safe but funky location. “The redevelopment is just what is needed and it’s given us and other entrepreneurs the conf dence to start up more bars and restaurants, which will add to the vibe of the precinct. We are building a destination where people can come for coffee, dinner and live music, until late. “We’ve all been inspired by the success of events such as the monthly Nights on Ocean and

Cliff Butt was one of the three founders of the Big Top and is a descendent of William Butt, who opened one of Maroochydore's first general stores, pictured here in 1921 the Ocean Street World Music Festival. It’s all here and together with the recent $90,000 improvement to the Ocean Street taxi rank and improved bus connectivity, the area is certain to offer something for everyone,” he says. It’s thinking which has not been lost on other entrepreneurs who have committed to Ocean Street, such as George and Sarah Bou Mansour who are opening Middle Eastern restaurant Zahtar; and Tony Kelly who makes a much-awaited return to Maroochydore with Hello Harry – the Gourmet Burger Joint. For Kelly, whose father installed the original Big Top sails in the 1980s, Maroochydore has always been special. “The area has so much going for it, which increases the prospects of running a successful business here,” he says. “While I was sad to leave The Wine Bar behind, I’m excited about coming back and having some fun fusing f ne food with burgers.” Solbar, Machu Picchu, Zahtar and Hello Harry are all expected to be open by Easter as part of stage one of the redevelopment of the Big Top.

Hot on their heels will be Panwa Thai Cuisine from Thai natives Zip (Anong Wonduean) and Marty (Samart Ngaogate); Tandoori Grill from Shivam Joshi who will build off his already successful string of Indian restaurants; and the Post Off ce Bar & Restaurant on the site of the former Australia Post outlet and more recently, a popular pop-up bar site for The Captain & The Duke during Nights on Ocean. The f nal three venues are expected to open in the weeks after Easter. Reed Property Group development director Ross Webb is delighted with the response Reed has had to the project. “There is a real sense of excitement from local residents and businesses as well as customers, tenants and prospective tenants,” he says. “Their doubts have given way to delight as we have reached project milestones. “The multicultural f avours and quality of the restaurants that have been attracted to the site will make for a very soulful and authentic experience – unlike any other precinct on the Sunshine Coast. continued over>

“Together with award-winning market operator Shane Stanley and the return of much-loved Big Top tenants, as well as the introduction of exciting new ones, Big Top Market Fresh will proudly play a key role in positioning Ocean Street as a destination where residents, workers and tourists can access convenient and fresh services with a true local f avour.” Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson is also excited to see the Big Top site being revitalised in line with the council’s vision for a bustling CBD, and in a way that could contribute to the Rural Futures Strategy by offering a CBD outlet for locally grown produce. “The Big Top site is a large parcel in the region’s CBD and it’s essential that the Maroochydore City Centre offers a range of experiences and options that is true to the Sunshine Coast brand,” Jamieson says. “We think it’s a recipe for success.” Every major city has a special area where things slow down a bit, creativity is celebrated and people of all ages gather to reconnect and

DIVERSE SCHOOLS MAKE FOR HAPPY KIDS

T

he Sunshine Coast is rapidly gaining a reputation for educational diversity, with an increasing number of independent schools and alternative education on offer. Choosing the best education for a child is one of the biggest decisions parents have to make, and for many, mainstream education is not meeting their needs. At Forest Glen, the Coast’s newest school is taking shape on 22 hectares of bushland and it’s being custom-built to deliver the world renowned Montessori method of education. The Maroochydore Road site will become home to the Montessori International College, which will open at the start of 2015. Principal Chiray Fitton says the construction is the culmination of f ve years of hard work by the school, which has been based at Sippy Downs since 2007. “The school is designed to complement the natural surroundings, encourage a sustainable environment and support the Montessori philosophy of putting the child f rst,” Fitton says. “The new school will cater for 420 students from kindergarten to year 12 – we have small class sizes so we get to know every student personally.” The $10 million school is jointly funded by the State Government, the school community and public donations. Fitton says it’s what happens inside the school which makes it stand out from other Coast schools. “We help our students learn how to learn; the

[ 18 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ AP RIL 11, 2014

18.indd 1

one constant in life is change, so if our children can easily adapt they’ll be ready for whatever tomorrow has to offer,” she says. “Our educational approach was developed by Italian physician and educator Dr Maria Montessori more than a century ago – and has stood the test of time.” Fitton says the school follows the national curriculum but has multi-age learning spaces, enabling students to learn at their own pace. But there is a focus on purpose and meaning. When the school property f ooded, students studied the watershed of the property, built swales to manage the water and then studied the data. “They’re learning something because there’s a reason to learn it and it has purpose and meaning.”

Montessori students learning in the natural environment

There are more than 25,000 Montessori schools around the world. Among the more notable alumni are the Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin; Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com and Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales.

Earthworks at the site of the new Montessori International College at Forest Glen Education minister John-Paul Langbroek says Queensland has a number of schooling alternatives, from those with religious foundations, to schools based on a specif c educational philosophy. “The State Government recognises the benef ts of providing support for a number of schooling alternatives to enable parents to choose the type of school that will best suit their child,” Langbroek says. And Fitton says Coast parents are lucky to have such a diverse choice of education. “I think we have a very rich landscape on the Coast,” she says. As well as state colleges, Catholic colleges and Christian independent schools, we have the Ananda Marga River School, Blackall Range Independent School and some f exi schools. Blackall Range Independent School at Kureelpa is celebrating its 40th anniversary next year and co-principal Louise Cameron says with just 33 students from prep to Year 10 they are a small, close-knit community. She says some of their students did not f t in to mainstream education while others are there because parents like the educational model offered. “We want them to do well academically – and they do – but we do have a strong focus on their social-emotional wellbeing too,” Cameron says. Cameron welcomes the vast range of educational opportunities in the region. “I think it’s really important because we’re all different individuals and we all have different needs and different ways of learning.”

BEAR EXPERT JOINS USC An internationally renowned wildlife researcher and leader in bear research and climate change will help develop the University of the Sunshine Coast’s new zoology major and animal ecology courses. Professor Hank Harlow from the University of Wyoming will work with USC academics, students, researchers and external partners on a number of projects this semester. He will also lead USC’s f edgling research project on sun bears in the Asia-Pacif c region. Sun bears are the world’s smallest and least-studied bear species, classif ed as vulnerable due to declining numbers in the wild. USC pro vice-chancellor (International and Quality) Professor Robert Elliot says Harlow’s acclaimed research and teaching expertise will be of immense value to USC in curriculum development and its joint bear research with international governments and organisations. Elliot says the visiting academic will mentor USC students, provide

Affordable housing The National Rental Affordability Scheme has delivered 485 affordable dwellings to benefit low-income families on the Coast. Minister for Housing and Public Works Tim Mander says the NRAS is a partnership between the Queensland and Australian governments to deliver homes where rent is capped at 80 per cent of the going market rate. “Boosting the supply of affordable housing is the perfect way to lower the cost of living for families, especially those who are struggling the most,” Mander says.

Thousands of new jobs for the Coast The latest Australian Bureau of Statistics data shows more jobs were created on the Sunshine Coast in the last year than any other Queensland region. Treasurer Tim Nicholls says it is a sign of conf dence in the local economy. “The employment growth experienced on the Sunshine Coast in the year to February 2014 was more than eight times greater than the statewide average,” Nicholls says. “There are 11,300 more people in work in the region than there were 12 months ago.”

ARE YOU READY FOR THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WHEN THEY TOUCH DOWN ON OUR SHORES?

f you run into Prince William and Kate – or Prince George – during their 18-day sojourn in Australia and New Zealand this month, don’t lose your head (or refer to the Queen as “your grandma”). Should you happen to come into royal contact, UK etiquette expert William Hanson, author of The Bluffer’s Guide To Etiquette, has some tips to help you act more like a toff. “Being common is so 2013,” says Hanson, who describes himself as “24 going on 54” and “a teacup and saucer in a world of mugs”. “For 2014, it’s all about good manners, being polite to the person who just pushed in front of you in the queue, and knowing how to greet the Queen properly when you do meet her.” The royals’ schedule is busy, but the couple is likely to mingle with locals at dinners, events,

fetes and shows. So here are Hanson’s top tips on being a toff: Dining – Pudding vs Dessert. The f nal course of a dinner is ‘pudding’, never ‘dessert’. If you call your lemon posset with spun sugar basket a dessert when dining with the hoity toity, you might as well prepare for a future of dining at all-you-can-eat buffet restaurants, where you can help yourself to the dessert buffet for all eternity. Introductions – Never say “pleased to meet you” when greeting a stranger. Rather, say, “How do you do?” If you don’t know who they are, can you be sure you really are pleased to meet them? Meeting people – Review your handshake. Try to avoid being a wet f sh or a bone crusher. People judge others on the quality of their handshake. Social occasions – Avoid attending Facebook parties. If you’re invited anywhere by Facebook, don’t go. It won’t be worth it and you’ll probably be served beer in the bottle or be given wine that hasn’t been decanted.

SIGNS POINT TO A STRONGER ECONOMY Other data measures have been strong – both the services and manufacturing purchasing managers’ indicators registered recent gains, while new home sales rose 0.5 per cent. Consumer conf dence fell 0.7 per cent in March, but this was better than the previous surveys. Our sense is that the nature of the recovery (cyclical momentum f ghting structural headwinds), and the transition from mining to non-mining growth, will mean that consumer conf dence struggles to move much in one direction or another this cycle. This underscores our view that there is genuine cyclical momentum in the domestic economy. We perceive that the Reserve Bank has little interest in just one more 25 basis point easing, especially given that interest rate-sensitive sectors of the economy are showing positive momentum (retail sales, housing and credit). If the Reserve Bank believes the economy needs further stimulus, we believe the preferred instrument would be a lower Australian dollar, rather than another interest rate cut. The futures market predicts the f rst rate rise to occur by the middle of 2015. Given our discussion about recent momentum in the economy, we suggest that there is the risk of an earlier rate move, but it will likely take higher-than-expected inf ation reports and ongoing improvement in the labour market for this to eventuate in an aggressive fashion. The Reserve Bank is unlikely to

ecent economic data has been more favourable than some observers might have expected. • Building approvals surprised positively. With approvals 34 per cent higher than a year ago, dwelling investment will add to domestic demand. It is also likely domestic demand growth will f nd additional support from the construction sector in coming quarters as various civil projects begin. • Retail sales rose solidly in January and are running more than 6 per cent higher than a year ago, with the emphasis on non-discretionary spending. This is further evidence that low interest rates are working to stimulate the economy. • GDP grew by 2.8 per cent in 2013 but the recovery in domestic demand growth is tentative, with no contribution from dwelling investment (although this is just a matter of time), and a considerable drag from business investment. Nonetheless, the trend evident in business conditions surveys points upwards.

have much tolerance for another higher-than-expected inf ation outcome, especially given some of the uncertainty around the drivers of higher inf ation. On the other hand, if inf ation starts to behave in line with other macro-economic indicators (subtrend growth, rising unemployment rate, etc) then a protracted period of policy stability will be the most likely outcome.

MAKE/MODEL BMW X5 xDRIVE30d DETAILS Five-door, sevenor five-seat SUV with six-cylinder turbo-diesel engine and eight-speed automatic transmission. TECH STUFF 3-litre, in-line six-cylinder twin-turbo diesel engine with common rail direct injection produces 190kW at 4000rpm, 560Nm at 1500-3000rpm; eightspeed autoc transmission with steptronic manual function; permanent all-wheel-drive.

EVOLUTION OF A BMW CLASSIC WORDS Peter Atkinson

A

friend of mine has the world’s most boring eating habits. Every night, week to week, he eats exactly the same thing. Monday night it’s meat and three veg; Tuesday it’s tuna casserole; Wednesday is pasta bake – and so it goes. He says it’s because he doesn’t like surprises. Me, I think I’d quickly lose the will to wake up. You may wonder what this has to do with cars. But there’s a point here. For more than 15 years, BMW has used basically the same recipe for its class-leading X5 SUV. Pretty much the same body shape, along with much the same three-litre, six-cylinder petrol or diesel engine (among others),

and a roughly unchanged drivetrain. You might think they’d eventually run out of ways to make that same old recipe exciting or appetising. Yet the latest X5 – the third generation of this iconic model – is just as fresh and exciting as the day it was first unveiled to an unsuspecting motoring market back in 1999. Although, along the way there have been some changes, of course. A variety of engines plus all manner of technological changes. But this latest X5 is instantly recognisable as the progeny of those to have gone before. You still see the original X5 models everywhere – and they still look

as contemporary and attractive as ever. It’s a timeless piece of styling. Compare the original X5 to the original ML-Class Mercedes – and stand both beside their current models –and you’ll see what I mean. The X5’s crisp lines remain. The straight-six-cylinder configuration is still the staple power source, although there’s also a smaller, entry-level diesel and some thumping V8 and performance diesel variants. But somehow, while retaining the same ingredients, BMW’s clever engineers have managed to make this latest X5 feel like a noticeable step forward. It’s evolution, rather than a continued page 40>

FEATURES Front, side and head airbags; dynamic stability control with dynamic traction control, cornering brake control and dynamic brake control; biXenon headlights with highbeam assist; head-up display, blind-spot and frontal collision warning systems; electric seats, mirrors, windows and rear tailgate; 19-inch alloy wheels, leather trim, satellite navigation, Bluetooth connectivity; auto stop-start system PERFORMANCE 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds.

<from page 38 revolution – and to be honest, it’s not easy to put your f nger on the reason it feels substantially better than the model it replaces. Even BMW’s marketing department could only come up with “Simply better”. For our week-long test in the X5, we drove the familiar 3-litre turbo-diesel variant, known as the xDrive30d. It’s more powerful and more fuel-eff cient but not massively more expensive. It sits relatively low on the X5 model list – the third-cheapest, just sneaking in under the $100-grand barrier. Other more powerful variants range from the sDrive35i ($107,000), through the twin-turbo V8 xDrive50i ($133,900) right up to the freakish M50d (3-litre turbo-diesel with three turbochargers, 280 kilowatts and 740 Newton metres) at $147,900. Tempting as those models are, the xDrive30d has roundly been acknowledged as the value buy in the X5 range and we couldn’t disagree. The twin-turbo diesel produces a respectable 190 kilowatts in its new guise and a brawny 560 Newton metres – delivering a linear and

substantial stream of power that gets this big machine up and galloping with no hint of effort. The engine is smooth and quiet, but surprisingly responsive for a diesel, with a low-down thrust. The fact it will reach the speed limit in a brisk 6.9 seconds, while still sipping a staggeringly-low 6.2 litres per 100 kilometres, is testament to the ever-evolving appeal and eff ciency of diesel technology. Helping achieve that frugal thirst and putting that power so smoothly to the ground, is BMW’s latest eightspeed auto transmission – seamless and intuitive and giving the X5 massively long legs on the open road. An auto stop-start system also helps save fuel in heavy traff c conditions. BMW says the X5 is considerably more aerodynamic thanks to “air curtains” which redirect airf ow around the wheel-arches to reduce drag, supplemented by the new breather vents just behind the front wheels. Specif cation levels on our test machine were also impressive. BMW boasts that this model represents much-improved value on the previous model, with standard kit

including 19-inch alloys, bi-Xenon headlights with LED fog lights and high-beam assist. Driving aids include BMW’s clever head-up display, plus a suite of technology called Driver Assistant, comprising lane departure warning, frontal collision warning, pedestrian warning, a city-traff c auto braking function plus rear-view camera and 360-degree parking system.

Whatever you want it to be!

KEEP YOUR OIL ON THE LEVEL Engine damage caused by a loss of oil is common, but experts warn that putting too much oil in an engine can also have serious consequences. A motorist who accidentally overf lls the motor should stop the car and have the excess drained off before proceeding, says Vincenzo Luca of Germany’s Tuev Sued vehicle-testing agency. Excess oil can get whipped up into foam inside the engine and will fail to pass through the oil pump and internal engine passages. This lowers oil pressure and can even cause seizure if hot metal surfaces, normally separated by a f lm of oil, come into contact with one another. If the permissible oil level has been exceeded only slightly, it should be possible to drive to the next repair shop. “If in doubt drivers should call a breakdown service and have the matter dealt with on the spot,” Luca says.

“Too much oil is almost more damaging than too little.” Before checking the oil, park the car on level ground. After switching off the engine wait a few minutes so the oil settles down and you get an accurate reading. First pull out the dipstick and wipe it clean, then reinsert all the way in. When you pull it out to check it, the oily section should end between the dipstick’s maximum and minimum marks. The distance between them usually represents about a litre of oil.

HYUNDAI LENDS A HELPING HAND Car manufacturer Hyundai Motor Company Australia has expanded its charitable contribution to help young Australians. The company last week announced Ronald McDonald House, Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation, Clown Doctors and Little Wings are the four initial recipients of the company’s recently-established philanthropic program Hyundai Help for Kids. The organisations will receive f nancial and/or vehicular assistance from Hyundai Help for Kids to aid them in delivery of vital services supporting young Australians. They join three existing programs run by the motoring company. Hyundai Help for Kids aims to grant about $1.5 million this year to not-for-prof t organisations supporting Australian young people under the age of 18. At the end of the program’s f rst quarter more than $341,000 had been raised via equal contributions from Hyundai and Hyundai Dealer Network made from every vehicle sold in Australia from January 1. A dedicated communications and resource hub for the Hyundai Help for Kids program, including

Apple launches CarPlay

Ronald McDonald House a suite of social media outlets, has been established to offer connectivity points with the organisation and its work and to provide grant application guidance, and a pathway process. A range of organisations focused on providing help for children and the families who support them through sport, culture, education, health, community engagement, and social welfare are selected from applications evaluated quarterly throughout the year.

Technology giant Apple says vehicles will roll out this year with CarPlay technology making iPhones helpful road-trip companions, complete with Siri tending to messages. “CarPlay gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use Maps, listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch,” according to Apple. Ferrari, Volvo, and Mercedes-Benz demonstrated the technology last month at a car show in Geneva, but other car makers incorporating it into models includes Honda, BMW, Toyota, and General Motors. Motorists will be able to plug iPhone 5 handsets into their cars, then use touch-screen commands or activate virtual assistant Siri by pressing buttons on the steering wheels. “Apple’s conservative approach will get it into many cars faster than competitors, who will likely end up supporting Apple’s CarPlay while they aim for deeper built-in technology,” says Frank Gillet, an analyst from Forrester research. While Apple is making entertainment and safe navigation easier using iPhones, rivals will embed operating software into cars, he says. AAP

YOUR NEXT AGENT KAREN JONES

K

aren Jones is well known within the Sunshine Coast real estate industry and has proven sales success throughout the different market conditions over the last 11 years. As an established agent, Karen is recognised as one of the most esteemed real estate marketers, specialising in prestige waterfront and beachside properties. In 2013, Karen was awarded Next Property Group’s top sales performer and recognised within the group for her strategic and incredibly effective marketing techniques. We caught up with the talented sales consultant to discover a little more about what gets her up each morning and how she has managed to obtain her long-term success in such a competitive industry.

What is your personal philosophy when it comes to sales and marketing? Karen: I think outside the box, as cliché as it sounds – every home is different and each marketing campaign needs to be tailored to the right target market and the home needs to be presented in the best possible light. This is always my focus. What is the thing you love most about your job? Karen: I don’t think I could go past the fact that no two days are ever the same. I get to meet so many different people from all walks of life and I love the process of helping people achieve their real estate goals. Tell us, for people thinking of selling their home, what is your main advice? Karen: Selling your property is 80% planning and 20% doing, I work closely with all my sellers to ensure that we have a comprehensive and customised strategy and plan prior to presenting the property to the marketplace. Where do you see the market heading for 2014? Karen: I am just excited to be working in a career that I love and I look forward to assisting more people across the Coast to achieve their goals and to make their next move, their best move.

THE DOWNSIZING DREAM

4 ST VINCENTS CT, MINYAMA

45 PACIFIC BLVD, BUDDINA

23 CYPRESS COURT, MINYAMA

Karen’s name was given to me from a friend who had done business with her and was very happy with the outcome. My first impression was her ‘straight-forward’ approach and well informed facts. Being selfemployed it is important to me to get the facts and information without having to ‘filter’ it. During the open and sale period I was kept up to date without being overloaded with information. But finally it was the outcome of getting the price I wanted and selling prior to auction that impressed me.

2 MURINGO COURT, MINYAMA

I just want to send my sincere appreciation to Karen Jones who sold my home at 4 St Vincents Court, Minyama. It was a complete shock to my wife and I as we were expecting to have to rent our house out for a period of 12-18 months, waiting for the market to improve sufficiently to achieve a reasonable price. What made this sale possible was Karen Jones’ ability to understand what the prospective buyer needed and wanted, and then to read into my expectations in a depressed market. We received an exceptional price in a difficult market because Karen Jones has an outstanding ability to read the buyer and seller. Ray and Therese - Sellers

We were extremely happy with Karen and her team as they provided prompt professional service with fast results and a sale price we were happy with.

When Glen and I decided to put our much loved home on the market we had no hesitation in entrusting this job to Next Property Group.

Karen has the perfect personality for the great job she does! She is pleasant, listens, is compassionate, punctual, professional and is an overall nice person.

The professionalism of Karen Jones was beyond our expectations. Karen let us know exactly what was happening every step of the way and their friendly approach enabled us to call anytime with questions we had!

Overall I have and will continue to recommend Karen to people buying or selling real estate. Steve - Seller

We would not hesitate to recommend Karen and her team to anyone looking for a great result. Greg and Michelle - Sellers

We would highly recommend Karen to our family and friends to sell their homes. Glen and Lynelle - Sellers

HOROSCOPES

18

ARIES [Mar 21-Apr 20] Prepare for a challenging week full of inconvenient disruptions and dramatic surprises. Being a rambunctious ram will just land you in a heap of trouble – especially with authority figures. Simmer down, before you say or do something that you later regret.

TAURUS [Apr 21-May 21] Mercury moves into your sign (from April 23-May 8) so keep two-way communication going. If you are too stubborn in your opinions, others will just stop listening to what you have to say. Friday’s fabulous Venus/ Saturn trine helps you sort out a partnership problem.

GEMINI [May 22-Jun 21] Expect some turmoil this week, especially involving children, teenagers, friends or finances. With a flexible approach (and a diplomatic demeanour) you’ll manage things just fine. You’re in a hurry to get ahead but be especially cautious when it comes to money matters.

CANCER [Jun 22-Jul 23] Avoid using manipulation to force people to do what you think they should be doing. Let others make their own choices (and mistakes). It’s also time to initiate career and relationship changes – before Uranus and Pluto do it for you.

LEO [Jul 24-Aug 23] It’s a volatile week so keep your cool, cats. Avoid spreading gossip and blurting out things you’ll later regret. Be extra careful when driving. You’re keen to teach others, but don’t assume you have all the answers. Hot-headed hubris will put others off.

VIRGO [Aug 24-Sep 23] With Mercury moving into fellow earth sign Taurus, you’re keen to tackle practical tasks like cooking, gardening and DIY projects. Study, reading and research are also favoured. You need to keep up to speed with what’s going on in the world.

LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23] You want everything to run smoothly this week but it’s just not going to happen. Work relationships will be tricky and loved ones unpredictable, so try to relax. With Jupiter activating your career zone (until July 16) look for ways to expand your influence at work.

SCORPIO [Oct 24-Nov 22] What a dramatic week. Pluto opposes Jupiter; then squares Uranus and Mars. Trying to control others and manipulate outcomes will get you nowhere fast so consider swapping Scorpio sarcasm and temper tantrums for cool, clever compromise.

SAGITTARIUS [Nov 23-Dec 21] Cutting corners could lead to unfortunate consequences. And, if you are less than 100% honest, then the Jupiter/Pluto opposition increases your likelihood of getting caught out. Enthusiasm is high, but don’t jump to conclusions and then pass on incorrect information.

CAPRICORN [Dec 22-Jan 20] The more you micro-manage close relationships early in the week, the more loved ones will distance themselves from you. Emotional power struggles are likely, unless you can be more co-operative. Friday’s Venus/ Saturn trine boosts charisma and communication skills.

AQUARIUS [Jan 21-Feb 19] Uranus sends disruptions in your direction, plus Pluto demands that you shed your old skin and start afresh. So the only certainty at the moment is change. You’re feeling restless but try to modify your reactions, otherwise it will be a long and tiring week.

PISCES [Feb 20-Mar 20] Pliable Pisceans are keen to please others this week but avoid the temptation to say yes to everything. Sunday should be super as Neptune blesses creative projects, and your intuition helps you find a solution to a long-term problem.

SURF REPORT with MWP’s man in the water

Let’s talk yoga! Recently I have had a little break and my surf ng has turned to rubbish, actually it was always rubbish but now worse than normal. Gerry Lopez is the prime advertisement and can still surf and snowboard into his 60s. His recommendation is Bikram if you are just starting and I would suggest the same. Getting to your feet slowly does not always work out well when its sucky! Read between the lines on that one. Certainly gives everyone a laugh! Conditions this weekend will be light winds but small surf – so maybe a mal or stand-up could be worth a go! The report from last weekend was Peregian Beach had some great banks and was the pick. Bring on winter swells!

FISHING REPORT with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World

ESTUARY: Bream and whiting numbers are increasing and good fun to catch for the kids with Cotton Tree the spot on the top of the tide. Serious anglers are drifting along the sand bank edges working bait and lures for jacks, trevally and f athead around Goat and Channel islands, near the mouth of Maroochy River. SURF: Open beaches are the go for f sh, but the protected headlands of Point Cartwright, Pincushion and Coolum are returning chopper tailor and sea bream with baby blue pilchards and whitebait on small ganged hooks working wonders. It looks like a great winter f shing season on the beaches this year. OFFSHORE: Head to the Inner Gneerings and Murphy’s Reef on the change of the tide for anglers willing to berley for reef f sh. Spanish and spotted mackeral and long-tail tuna are taking trolled lures of the deep-diving variety at 12 Mile and Murphy’s. Good catches of black marlin have been reported during the week, if bait schools can be located. FRESHWATER: Lake Baroon will be f ring for bass and spangled perch – remember, lead sinkers are illegal in this impoundment. Lake Macdonald is another local dam f ring for bass on medium-diving lures and live shrimps with the drop-off’s along the weed beds best.
