OUR STORY My Weekly Preview is a high-quality magazine delivering more of what matters to the Sunshine Coast. It features news, business, regular columnists, interesting facts and figures for that hot topic at the dinner table, motoring, socials, travel, health, lifestyles and more, as well as the most up-to-date information on local real estate. The magazine is 100% locally owned, which means we don’t just talk about being local, we are local, we live it every day. Delivered fresh every Friday. We’re also conscious of the environment at MWP – all our home delivered magazines are wrapped in biodegradable plastic.


ow do mums do it? I consider myself a hands-on dad, but when I look at what my mum did with three boys under four, and what my wife does on a daily basis, I am left in awe. Mums balancing work, life and family is nothing new, but there’s a fresh approach to tackling this age-old challenge – and in this week’s cover story we meet the mumpreneuers. Also in this edition, you get to hear from the man who runs one of the region’s biggest budgets and workforces – the CEO of the Sunshine Coast Council, Michael Whittaker. That’s The Interview on page 30. You get an introduction to the Sunshine Coast sailor who is considered one of the world’s best – he’s gunning for line honours in this year’s Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. As well, you can jump into a 4WD to experience the wonders of Rwanda, and receive Cindy O’Meara’s secret recipe for a natural sunscreen. And in property you get all the latest news and views.

Julie-Ann Fenwick-Symons of Sippy Downs ran 23 shops in Sydney and is now happy with her one successful Buderim boutique. FIRST JOB?


Receptionist for an optometrist in Sydney.

It is the best place to live and work. My husband and I have travelled a lot and there is nowhere better. The people are so natural, friendly, and fun to be around.

WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING ON? Perfecting my Viking – Javelin Kayak skills (four metres long) a lot for a small person like me.



Stop over developing it! I just think we’re getting too big. People can’t get parking in Mooloolaba on weekends.

My handsome husband George and my two sons Mark and Justin who live in Sydney.



Too hard to single out, every place is great, we love it all. We like Buderim Tavern, Kawana Tavern and Maisie’s a seafood restaurant in Noosa.

White Honda convertible, loved it, drove it every day to work from Miranda to Chatswood.



1,000 Places to See Before You Die by Patricia Schultz. I’m a great fan of China, I love Beijing. It has fabulous nightclubs that are hidden away from the public and they’re something out of this world.

FAVOURITE SONG? I have many, but love Truly by Lionel Ritchie.

BEST DAY IN YOUR LIFE? When I met and then married my present husband. We met in Sydney in a nightclub. He looked like George Hamilton. I had hot pants on and boots past my knees, I was skinny as, and I always had long blonde hair. I’ve always been that funky, out there kind of person.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU LIVED ON THE SUNSHINE COAST? Since 1989, I remember the day vividly, I had driven from Sydney to Mooloolaba to visit my sister. I came to end of Mooloolaba Road and thought wow. The ocean was crystal blue.

BEST ADVICE YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN? My father said if you are going to be in the work force, do what you love and you will always love getting up to go to work. In my day, when you left school, you became a secretary or a hairdresser. My father was head of the railways, he wanted me to become a secretary with him in the railways. I tried it for a week and hated it. I’m a people person, I didn’t want to be

locked away. I ran 23 shops in Sydney. I came up here to retire and stay with my sister. I went from being a busy person to switching off. It was nice for a holiday but I thought, I’m a bit bored sitting on the beach.

CAN YOU NOMINATE A DAY IN YOUR LIFE THAT TURNED OUT TO BE A TURNING POINT? The day I found an empty shop at 20 Brisbane Road, Mooloolaba and decided to open an upmarket fashion boutique, as in those days there were only a few shops doing fashion. I wanted to do European designers and something for that special occasion. Once someone walks in the door, all I need to know is where the wedding is and the colour of the bridesmaid’s dress. I’ll put them into something appropriate for their figure and a half or an hour later they’re walking out the door with an outfit.

Not having as much time to do what I want, especially see my two sons who live in Sydney.

WHAT ACHIEVEMENT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF? Very proud of Julie-Ann Boutique, it is coming up to my 16th anniversary of opening on December 20. I keep getting asked to do speeches. I don’t want to tell people my secrets about how to run a business but it’s service, it’s friendliness, being unique, being polite to people and treating everybody the same.

YOU ARE HAPPIEST WHEN? Talking and having fun enjoying dressing my lovely clients for a special occasion and seeing the smiles on their faces when I have dressed them up to look fabulous in something they would never imagined themselves wearing and hearing their partner and friends go WOW you look great.

IF YOU COULD TELL YOUR 18 YEAR-OLD SELF ANYTHING WHAT WOULD IT BE? Go and do what makes you happy but makes money.

WHAT IS YOUR PREFERENCE, TEA OR COFFEE AND HOW DO YOU HAVE IT? Tea, strong with lactose free milk.

NRL OR AFL? NRL – St George Dragons.

It turns out babies and business do mix, it just takes organisation, a good idea and a bit of nouse. Words: Candice Holznagel

“The business runs from my house so I can put a load of washing on and make dinner while Winslow is having her sleeps” Georgia Woulfe and baby Winslow Image: Carly Head


t’s 8.30am when I switch on my home office computer ready to start work. The second load of washing is in the machine. We’ve been to a swimming lesson, breakfast is done, the dishes are clean, the floor vacuumed and my 21-month-old is dressed and ready for the day. I won’t lie – I’m feeling a little smug. After all, not all days go quite as smoothly. But that’s the life of a women who works from home. Actually, it’s the life of any working mother. In the past four decades the percentage of mothers in the workforce has steadily increased. Research from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows that in 2011, 53 per cent of mothers with a child under the age of two, who had a job while pregnant, returned to the workforce. Around 190,000 women returned to work while a further 16,000 who were not employed during their pregnancy, entered the workforce. As a result, employers have had little choice but to become more flexible. Australia is now one of the leading

12 My Weekly Preview | December 4, 2015

12.indd 1

countries – second only behind the Netherlands – following the one-and-ahalf earner model, a pattern that sees mothers return to work on a part-time basis to support the full-time income of their partner. There has also been a growing trend in working from home, otherwise known as telework, thanks to the improvement in technology.

her own research. Dr Rose, who specialises in family, work and gender sociology, says mothers work hard at both ends of the spectrum. “When they are in jobs they work hard so then they have time with their children,’’ she says. “We are definitely seeing that trend. One of the things women are really

“They’ve got planning schedules on the fridge. They’ve got their work, life, when partners need to pick up the kids. . .” Judy Rose Interestingly, the Australian Bureau of Statistics found that women employed in highly flexible roles are more productive than the rest of the working population. University of Queensland lecturer Dr Judy Rose backs up this claim with

good at is being organised. “They’ve got planning schedules on the fridge. They’ve got their work, life, when partners need to pick up the kids… the whole thing planned out. “They are really good at organisation and good at emotional

work, too. “They are good at multitasking and for those who have a home business… they’ve got the washing on, they have something in the oven. “I found that the fallout is they get tired. It’s draining and they are time stressed.’’ According to ABS statistics from 2011, 26 per cent of mothers said the most common reason for returning to the workforce was to keep their job or their employer had requested their return. Fifteen per cent returned for financial reasons while another 15 per cent chose to work to maintain self-esteem. Rose says in addition to the telework trend, there has also been the emergence of the mumpreneur. These are women who are creating their own opportunities often to ensure they are home with their children. “Over the past four decades, women in workforce participation has increased phenomenally,’’ she says. “Sixty-three per cent of women, who are married, are working now. “Women are requesting other flexible measures such as start and finish work times and telework. myweeklypreview.com.au

1/12/2015 1:02:20 PM


“Another phenomenon is the mumpreneur. It takes a certain woman to be attracted to that sort of thing. “There is the risk of starting up on your own but that’s for men as well. “Some of these businesses do incredibly well.’’

GEORGIA WOULFE Mother to Winslow, six months old Caloundra’s Georgia Woulfe is a prime example of the successful mumpreneur. This young mother heads up online business Winne Dot, which she launched nine months ago while on maternity leave. In that short time she has created a niche business creating wooden garlands for nurseries and interior design purposes. And it is working – she has 27,500 Instagram followers and has hired an employee. “I went to buy a garland for the baby’s nursery but I couldn’t find the right one,’’ she says. “I thought you know what, I’ll buy beads myself and make it. “One morning at 2am I couldn’t sleep and I started thinking about it. “I think I had enough supplies to make 15. I started an Instagram account and started posting some photos. “It must have been a few weeks later I decided to start selling them. I sold all 15 within a matter of minutes.’’ After a few months she realised she wasn’t meeting demand, so she hired help. “I’m painting, cutting, sanding, drilling and putting them together,’’ she explains. “I had a really big guilt moment in my life and thought ‘what comes first?’ “I want to give Winslow the best life and provide. I made that decision that while I want to be hands-on with my business I couldn’t do it all. “We can try, but we can’t do it all.’’ Creating her own opportunities has


13.indd 1

given Woulfe the chance to be at home with her young daughter. “The business runs from my house so I can put a load of washing on and make dinner while Winslow is having her sleeps. “I’m still getting the best of both worlds. “I have a lot of hopes and dreams for Winnie Dot. “I really want to use the foundation I’ve created and take it to bigger and better things.’’

REBECCA GRISMAN Mother to James, five Communications and marketing specialist Rebecca Grisman says it’s

Rebecca Grisman and son James time for workplaces to accept the change in trends. Also a successful mumpreneur as the founder and managing director of Campaign Group, Grisman says attitude needs to change. “The old-school attitude that unless someone is visibly at their desk they are not a team player needs to change. That is archaic.

“Having someone at their desk all day is less effective.’’ Grisman has built a reputation as a hard-working and successful business woman. When she began working as a contractor a decade ago, telework and hot-desking was relatively unchartered territory. Her work has taken her around the world and yet she chooses to base her business from her Coast home, which she shares with her son James. “It began pretty much from my kitchen table,’’ she recalls. “I really started it in 2005. I was offered a role of general manager at a big PR firm in Brisbane. I was doing the commute. “Up at 4am, leaving in the dark and coming home in the dark, spending four hours in the car. “It was just a bit soul destroying. “I went to four clients and said I don’t want a full-time job, at the same time I was going through IVF, so I said: ‘what if you outsourced your marketing needs to me?’ “Within two weeks I had filled up my weeks. I was working from the kitchen table with a laptop and meeting people in coffee shops or in their office.’’ Today, she has eight sub-contractors working under the business banner, office space at client buildings in the Hunter Valley, Gold Coast and Brisbane, a swag of awards under her belt and says while it was scary to leap from the corporate world into her own venture, she has never looked back. “It has been fantastic and enabled me to work at home. I could be at home when James was born right through to when he began his first year of kindy at four. “I give his class one afternoon a week. I read with all 24 kids, I help out, get in the pool. “It gives me a strong relationship with the teacher and the school and he sees me giving back. I’m fostering in him a sense of community.’’

WORKING FROM HOME – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW Benefits: • Flexible hours • More family time • No dress code • No office politics • Comfortable environment. Cons: • Minimal team support • Home distractions • Hours and salary can vary on a month by month basis • No paid leave • Limited IT support.

TYPES OF JOBS • Communications • Telemarketing/sales (such as beauty product companies and Tupperware) • Ironing • Creating and selling niche products • Cake decorating • Home-based beauty or hair salon • Business services such as accounting, sub-contractors, freelancers, virtual tutor. Check what type of insurance or council approvals you require when setting up a business from home.

A PLACE TO HOUSE THE KRAUSS Sunshine Coast residents are invited to have their say on where the restored Krauss Locomotive should be displayed. The council endorsed location for the Krauss is on the corner of Lindsay Road and Burnett Street. However, the Buderim Palmwoods Heritage Tramway Inc has now proposed an alternative site, also on Lindsay Road, across from the old post office. Councillor Ted Hungerford says it’s vital residents provide input before any new decisions are made.

IRONWOMAN WIN Noosa’s Jordan Mercer has had a breakthrough win in the Nutrigrain Ironwoman Series after six years of competition.

The project is expected to boost tourism and international trade and contribute $4.1 billion to the local economy. It will also generate more than 2230 jobs between 2020 and 2040. Moreton Bay Mayor Allan Sutherland says, “The expanded Sunshine Coast Airport will enable more visitors to access the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay regions directly – meaning significant benefits for local businesses and more visitors being able to experience our destination.”

THE YOUNG MAN AND THE SEA Casey Smith left Australia ten years ago to pursue his dream of sailing super maxi yachts. Now he’s come home to win the 70th Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw


asey Smith is one of a select group of Sunshine Coast sportspeople who have made it on the world stage. He may not be a household name, but in his chosen sport of sailing, he’s up there with the best. Come Boxing Day, he’ll tackle his 11th Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race on a 30-metre beast that’s tipped to take line honours in the 70th anniversary race. Smith is the boat captain of Comanche, the super maxi yacht owned by software mogul Jim Clark and his Australian wife, Kristy Hinze-Clark. It lost by just 49 minutes to Wild Oats last year, but modifications made to the yacht have the crew feeling confident of a win. “Our goal is to go down and win it,” says Smith, who says the pinnacle of his career has been completing two Volvo Ocean races in second and third place. “To have raced around the world twice is the biggest achievement so far, but it’s definitely a very big goal to achieve to win a Sydney to Hobart yacht race.” “We were there last year and we didn’t quite get the weather conditions we needed to beat Wild Oats. Typically a Sydney to Hobart race gives you a lot of different conditions and it’s a real tester for the boat and the crew. There’s a lot of mystery this year, a lot of big boats like us.” After the Sydney to Hobart, Comanche will be shipped to Charlestown, South Carolina for some Caribbean races followed by the Newport to Bermuda Classic Race in June. “The only time we get rest is when the boat is on the

ship because we can’t do anything,” says Smith. “It’s really nice to have a bit of a break and try to forget about the boat for a while. When you’re there with the boat it’s on, all day long. It’s a big responsibility and big workload.” Sailing is in Smith’s blood. Born into a Sunshine Coast sailing family, he’s been a member of Mooloolaba Yacht Club most of his life. While his older twin brothers Bucky and Godfrey were keener sailors as kids, Smith remembers when the urge to sail the big boats caught a hold of him. “As kids, Dad used to drag us out to Point Cartwright. I remember watching the maxis, Brindabella and Wild Thing. It was really then that my interest was sparked. I thought, I want to be on those boats. That was my goal between the ages of eight and 12. “It wasn’t until a bit later in life I made a decision that having grown up sailing with the whole family, it was just a thing that came naturally and I didn’t fight it anymore. I was playing a lot of rugby league and I had a decision to make. Was I going to pursue rugby league, with the consequences of that on your body, or pursue sailing? It was the smarter career choice in the way of longevity.” Smith left the Coast a decade ago to follow his dream and now lives in Portsmouth, Rhode Island with his partner Kate and two children, seven-year-old Sophia and five-year-old Noah. “It’s very different over here compared to growing up on the Sunshine Coast. The ocean is so much more

Right: Smith working on the boat in Genoa, Italy in November. Below: Comanche

accessible there, it’s so warm. I won’t lie to you, there’s been a lot of times I’ve sat inside the house and outside it’s below freezing and I’m scratching my head and thinking, how did I get myself into this situation, especially when you know it’s summertime on the Coast. It’s really cool, though. You get to see the seasons change. On the Sunshine Coast you have two seasons, hot and hotter.” The job usually takes Smith away from Kate and the kids for four to six weeks, but this time round, he’s brought them to the Coast to catch up with his extended family in the lead-up to the Sydney to Hobart. “It’s great to come back. The Coast has changed a lot. I’ve been away for about ten years and every time I come home I notice how much more development there is. It’s sad, but it’s also progress. I don’t think you can change it. Everyone has found out about our little secret.”

This is the ad we had to cancel 4 months ago because we sold them so fast Read The Facts To Find Out How To Save Hundreds ... even Thousands Of Dollars - Friday 4th December to Friday 11th December ONLY! IF you were waiting for the best time to invest in a new bed or bedroom suite then now is the time to act. Because you’ll probably never see these incredibly discounted prices again ... here’s why ... we had to cancel the ad because we ran out of stock. We went to our suppliers and asked them to resend the same items as they were sold within 2 weeks. This has worked out great because even though the prices of raw materials have gone up, the suppliers obliged by keeping their prices same as last time. This is great for us and for you because you can still get the beds and mattresses at low prices. How Can They Slash Their Prices By Up To 47%? According to Steve, the owner of Dial A Bed: “It’s all really quite simple. We have four stores now and our buying power is much better than before. So we get lower prices by buying in bulk ... we get lower prices by ordering directly from our suppliers and we get lower prices because we manufacture mattresses ourselves. Is there any crime against passing those savings along to our customers?” “Sure it’s going to upset some of our competitors” says one of the store managers. “But it’s perfectly ethical. In fact, all we’re doing is ‘bribing’ potential customers into our store so they can really understand the quality of our merchandise. While our profits are slashed dramatically, our hope is we will attract so many happy customers that they’ll refer us to their friends and family in the future: Seems fair, right?” That’s why for a limited time from Friday 4th December to Friday 11th December, you can get beds, mattresses and bedroom suites at up to 47% off. That could save you hundreds of dollars off small purchases. Or even thousands of dollars if you are purchasing beds for your whole family. These bargain prices are only just above wholesale, and this offer is only being made available as a market test. So in other words, if you don’t take advantage of this offer now - you may never get another chance to save so much money on your beds again. Anyway ... here’s the sample of savings you would expect to see...

Rwanda is an ideal introduction for newcomers to Africa. By Nina Zimmermann


t the end, it was worth it. After more than nine hours bumping down dirt tracks in a fourwheel-drive, we finally got to see two young bull elephants taking their afternoon bath in Lake Ihema. It was an uplifting moment at the end of a tour of Akagera National Park in eastern Rwanda, one of the most beautiful savannah reserves in Africa. A big tour from the Akagera Game Lodge in the south end of the park to the

Kilala Plains in the north takes almost 10 hours and there’s plenty to see. There are two main routes through the park: the road along the western border, which winds its way across a low mountain chain and beyond the Kilala Plains, and Lake Shore Road, which takes you around the park’s many lakes. In the lushly vegetated bushland a few kilometres from the lodge, the first buffalo with their curved horns can be seen bathing in small waterholes.

“It’s cool, there’s always a bit of wind, so there are no mosquitoes, and you can reach the animals on the Kilala Plains quickly in the morning.� On the way down again, we see impala antelopes and one of the highlights: zebras. They are numerous, each with a striped coat as individual as a fingerprint. They stand in the bush, under trees, right in the middle of the path, graceful and completely serene. Past the candelabra cacti and the bushy trees, the tour continues into the open steppes, the grasslands. In the distance, we can see giraffes, which weren’t always native to Akagera Park. On this day, only the elephants had been missing, but on the way back to Akagera Game Lodge, we make a quick detour down to a lake and there we find the two bull elephants. Now I’ve really been to Africa. – AAP

“Buffalo love muddy spots like that,� explains the guide, Bosco. “They can cool themselves down and the mud keeps the flies away.� Nearby, there are a couple of defassa waterbucks, a kind of antelope native to sub-Saharan Africa. “They give off a strong odour when they’re attacked,� adds Bosco. The 25-year-old is one of 24 freelance local guides and had to compete against 200 other people for one of the muchdesired training contracts. Poachers were a big problem that has since been contained here, he explains. The further north we go, the sparser the vegetation becomes. The surroundings transform into grasslands with acacia trees. There we see tope antelopes with their distinctive reddish-brown coats, brownish-black hind quarters and ridged horns. The white fur on their legs makes them appear as if they’re wearing socks. After two hours travelling along the western border, we reach the park’s highest point at 1825 metres, also known as Mutumba Hills. There are a few campfire spots, toilets and a small cabin for protection from the elements. There’s also a nearby park rangers’ station for emergencies. “European visitors often like to camp up here,� says Bosco.

I know it is too early in December to be whinging, but I always seem to end up with the dud gift. This year our group capped the price for the gift at $10. Easy, I thought. You can buy wine for that price. Candles, lovely soaps, a pen, chocolates, Christmas decorations. Heck, you can even buy clothing these days for that price. And did I mention wine? So I diligently bought a beautiful adult colouring in book and a pack of pencils. I wrapped it up beautifully and was so happy with my offering. So what did I ‘win’ in my group of so-called friends’ yearly tradition of Secret Santa? A stuffed cane toad. I am not kidding. It is the ugliest, fattest, wartiest, most disgusting looking thing I have ever seen. I think it is meant to be an ornament. Except it is not. Because ornaments are things of beauty and are made of glass or fine porcelain. They are not made of dead dry drongo toad skin. Everyone thought it was hilarious that I would be the unfortunate benefactor of the world’s biggest pest because my house is all white and full of pretty things. But even Jack the Ripper would not have stuffed dead animals just lying around his abode. The big blob even came with a blurb typed on a bit of paper around its ugly fat neck. It reads: ‘Cane toad leather.

Leather from the cane toad is strong and versatile. Individually handcrafted and manufactured from genuine cane toads. Designed for someone who likes something a little different! This full size stuffed cane toad can be used as a good luck toad or Money Frog to bring you luck. Comes in four sizes’. By the time I got to the end of this fascinating story my head was swivelling around on my neck and steam was coming out of my ears. So what to do with the toad travesty? I could re-gift it to that former friend who called me fat. I could post it to a few ex-boyfriends. I could just light it on fire and sit around the burning beast and laugh like a crazed maniac. However, after considered thought I have opted to give it to a charity recycling bin. There is an underlying flaw of Secret Santa: it saves you lots of money by not having to buy multiple gifts but the money you do spend is often a complete write off in this crazy Christmas ritual. And next year I am just going to refuse to play the stinking game and go by myself and get a big bowl of hot chips and a cup of coffee with that $10 and sit there and have the best Secret Santa win of my life. I do not care if you call me Scrooge behind my back!

Nathan ‘Nugget’ Dell says tampering with Test cricket leaves other sports open to a little tweaking.


ricket will never be the same. Like that day when I discovered about the birds and the bees by watching two amorous Rottweilers in my childhood front yard, there is no going back now. Day Night Test cricket, be it a one-off stain on the copy book of cricketing folklore or a new and exciting fixture to be thrust upon us annually by the cricketing powers that be, it has happened and we have to accept it. Now I consider myself an absolute cricket purist – 20/20 cricket is about as appealing as a bus station taco, and even though it has now been going for 40 years, I still consider 50 over games a passing fad. But if we are going to start tinkering with something as sacred at Test cricket, maybe there are a few more sports that could use a grease and oil change.

TEN PIN BOWLING I know what you’re thinking, Nugget, mate, how can you possibly improve on a sport where you get to wear borrowed shoes and the hot dogs are made of the shoes that are too old to rent? But even as majestic a pursuit as Ten Pin Bowling could use a tweak to get some more sweaty butts in those bolted down plastic seats. Change the scoring, how the hell does seven plus nine plus 10 equal 63? It’s that kind of maths that cost Joe Hockey his job. If you knock down eight pins, you get eight points. I want to bowl and not need a doctorate from MIT.

“The sport is okay, but the collisions are why we come”

DIVING Diving is a crap sport. Any sport where your main coaching tool is gravity, is going to have a hard task grabbing my heart or mind. To spice things up, perhaps every now and then, just as the diver is at the top of their jump, all but a foot of water is instantly drained from the pool. It’s the car racing principal, the sport is okay, but the collisions are why we come.

MOTO GP Worldwide, the motorbikes are as popular as ever, so a tweak might seem unnecessary. But I feel as the bikes get more modern and even faster, a sense of nostalgia is lost as a result. The best way to combat that is at least one race per season, all the riders are to be dressed like Officer Frank Poncherello, from the greatest TV show ever, Chips. I’m sure Erik Estrada would be free as well.

Feeling Drained, Crazy Mood Swings and Can’t Lose Weight Regardless of Exercise? Could it be Your Hormones? Mood swings so strong you feel you want to scream, or crawl into bed and sleep till it’s over. Anxiety over nothing, irritable over everything, and crying over anything? I’m not just talking about menopause and PMS; to all of you men, MANopause can and will happen, so listen up! Are you irritable, nervous, depressed, low libido, foggy thinking, can’t sleep, or gaining weight? Hormonal imbalances don’t just happen without cause. Why can some people eat anything and maintain their weight, yet you gain 3kg overnight from just thinking about breaking your diet? It’s not all about weight, but some of it is, these symptoms are just the tip of the iceberg for what hormones can do to your body when out of balance long term, accelerated aging, permanent metabolism malfunction, leading to diabetes and heart disease, decline in brain function, including loss of short term memory, and loss of important older memories permanently. There are 7 triggers that affect hormones including diet, food reactions, toxicity, deficiencies, infections, stress, and fitness. Generally people only deal with one of these at a time. You could see a specialist in only one area, though if you don’t address all of them, you’re caught in a cycle that goes on for life. The frustrating part is once these triggers upset your hormones, your hormones cause these triggers again. How do you stop it? Actually, it’s quite easy to stop, as long as you deal with them all at the same time and completely. I have seen patients treated with hormone creams to balance hormones, the pill, HRT, and bio-identical hormones. These might help your current symptoms, though they won’t fix the cause, and they won’t fix the permanent effects, so the cycle continues and you become reliant on them. Fortunately, it can be treated properly, with most symptoms improved within weeks, and completely relieved within just a few months. Hormones are one part of a 7 step process for permanently treating mood issues. These steps have been proven with testing to improve brain and total body function, without medication. If you’d like to know more, call for a FREE ½ HOUR CONSULTATION with one of our experienced and specially trained naturopaths where you’ll learn about everything that causes hormonal and mood problems, and what to do about it.

USE NATURAL SUNSCREEN Cyndi O’Meara shares her tried-and-true recipe for natural sunscreen.


s the weather heats up and we all get outside more to enjoy our wonderful Sunshine Coast lifestyle, I’m often asked what sunscreen I use and what did I use on my children when they were young and in the sun? Personally, I have never used commercial sunscreens on myself or my children, as I’ve always tried to stay away from as many chemicals as I can. We have been brought up with the slogan slip, slop, slap and while I do the slip and the slap with clothes and hats, I only do the slop with a natural based, ecofriendly sunscreen without zinc nanoparticles which penetrate the skin and are absorbed into the body. Almost 400 sunscreen products sold in Australia contain nanoparticles in amounts ranging from four per cent to 30 per cent, according to the Therapeutic Goods Administration.

It’s not hard to make your own sunscreen. My version should be applied again after swimming, but I can assure you that you won’t mind reapplying it, as it feels and smells amazing. Just melt together in a double boiler six tablespoons of coconut oil, one tablespoon of beeswax and four tablespoons of non-nanoparticle zinc oxide (SPF factor 15). Cool it quickly to homogenise the paste and you’re done. Sun protection without the nasty chemicals. If your skin is particularly sensitive to sunlight, it’s important to look at what you are eating as a modern diet of refined foods, grains and oils is not conducive to the health of the skin either.

SETTING THINGS STRAIGHT Council workers aren’t bludgers – they’re dedicated and diligent locals who care about our community, says the new CEO of the Sunshine Coast Council, Michael Whittaker. WORDS: Richard O’Leary


hen Michael Whittaker became the new CEO of the Sunshine Coast Council on September 21 it was the culmination of a career in local government which had seen him serve in Queensland, Western Australia and New South Wales. This week he sat down with My Weekly Preview’s Richard O’Leary for his first in-depth interview since starting in the top job to give an insight into his main priorities and how he intends to clear up a few myths about the council. The council is one of the biggest players in town. What’s the most difficult aspect of being under constant public scrutiny? The expectation that we’ll be everywhere, all the time and solve all the problems is something that people hope that we do. But we have limitations too, we have challenges around like the dual carriageway between Beerburrum to Nambour, yet that’s not our job, that’s

What is the biggest misconception about the council or its staff? One of the things that hurts me personally is that old perception that council workers are leaning on a shovel under the tree. It seems to be an analogy that has been used for many, many decades. All that I can say is in the last 20 years when I have worked in a council, the council staff have been extraordinarily talented. They’re diligent in their application, they want to serve the community the best they can and that old symbol of a council worker standing under a tree, leaning on a shovel is so wrong and I don’t know whether it was ever true, but in my time I’ve never seen that.

the Queensland Government, but people want us to solve that. People want us to change that interchange at Mooloolaba, but that’s not our road. But a lot of the

community are going you’re the council, you’re a government – solve it. The big end of town is always going to be an easy target.

Before you came into this job there was a major restructure of the council, including the loss of a substantial number of jobs to improve efficiency – is that job finished? Or is there more to do? I don’t think change ever stops. Every

business, because of the evolution of time, has to do this continuous improvement. It’s about the dramatic change. I think dramatic change is an indictment – either there’s a merger or demerger, or alternatively, it’s management not doing their job. Management should always be listening to what the customer, in our case the community, are feeling about the services. We should be listening to our staff about new technical innovations. We should be listening to councillors as they come through and are elected with differing policy platforms. The organisation needs to be continually adjusting itself to those sorts of variables. I see change as a constant and it should be incremental. What is the biggest challenge that faces the council? We are not rocket scientists. We do cut grass. We do fill pot holes. We do give out library books. Some of our work is perhaps not as exciting as others people’s jobs are, and keeping the focus on that [core services] is really hard. That’s a big challenge. This stage of the political cycle is always interesting. As we approach an election,

councillors traditionally become more intense and demanding – what is the atmosphere within council like at the moment? It’s a bit like if you go into an exam in school, or you’re about to compete in an athletics race, there’s always the butterflies, a little bit of edge around

“Nervous energy funnelled in the right direction can give you heightened performance”

that, a little bit of nervousness. That’s not a bad thing. Nervous energy funnelled in the right direction can give you heightened performance. The same goes for the councillors. They’re getting to a very pointy end and that heightened awareness allows them to give a better service to the community. The biggest criticism I’ve heard about

the council recently is from some developers who say to get something approved from the council you have to get council officers to recommend it. They say it’s just about impossible to get a decision up on a major project unless the council officers recommend it, so therefore they have to meet the expectations of the council staff rather than the councillors. Does that concern you? It shouldn’t be either/or the councillors or council staff. The development regime is set up by the planning scheme. All the staff member does is look at the documents built up by the community and the statutory process to see if it complies or not and writes a report. If the developer had the right consultant, they’d be able to do the same technical reports and they would know whether it complies or not. When it’s not material, we can relax some things. But if there’s a fundamental non-alignment with this process, which has travelled five years with the community and the state government and us, then we just write the report up. So when it doesn’t comply, then they [the developers] are being a little unfair. It’s a superficial response to a more complex issue.

You’ve been in the job now for a few months, what has been the biggest surprise in the new role? Probably threefold. One is the enthusiasm, energy and intellect of my council staff group. Very positive. The second one is the diligence and intelligence of my council and I say that in a very positive vein. They turn up every day and they are committed to working really hard for their division, and the mayor for the whole region. They are very sincere. These 11 people are working very hard for the community. The third one is community interest. Such a passion. All these issues, no matter what we are doing, the level of engagement from our community here on the Sunshine Coast is great. That’s a sense of ownership, they want to be involved, and they want to make a contribution. Far more than what I’ve ever had in any other council. What’s your number one priority for the council? I’m a great believer that it’s about embedding an organisation that delivers best value services to the community. That’s what I always like to do and I think that’s a really important role for the CEO.

We’ve got something special for you under the tree ...

PUTTING THE CUSTOMER FIRST Anthony Ward is from Ord Minnett in Buderim.


ochlear hosted its 2015 annual general meeting with new chief executive Chris Smith presenting for the first time to shareholders. Smith took the opportunity to reaffirm current financial year guidance of $165–175 million and indicated that September quarter results were in line with internal forecasts. Smith also used the AGM to run through Cochlear’s customer-centric business strategy, based on four key factors. Grow the core – Smith highlighted that a robust product pipeline of innovative technologies remained core to the company’s competitive edge. As part of this strategy, Cochlear is expected to release new and incremental

products across implants, processors and its service business over the next 18 months. At the same time, management is contemplating improving disclosure around various business lines. Create a service business – Management outlined that driving deeper market penetration can be achieved through engaging more closely with customers. In the US, patients spend on average three to four times more if they have active engagement with Cochlear. At present, management believes that there is only a 50 per cent penetration in each upgrade cycle. Building up this penetration through improving customer engagement is key. Data connectivity and patient management systems will assist in this regard. Shape the organisation – In line with increased customer engagement, the company is aiming to increase its presence in the markets in which it operates. This includes a sales presence at the audiologist/provider level and

direct to potential recipients. Value creation – Management acknowledged that successfully implementing this customer-focused strategy means that they must focus on opportunities that truly create value for their business and their patients. Of course, this strategy will come at a cost with management flagging that the second half of the financial year will include additional costs from expanding its sales force and boosting marketing efforts. At the same time, there will be an increase in expenditure on various research and development projects. Thankfully, the timing of this expenditure was incorporated into management’s original guidance.

“Of course, this strategy will come at a cost”

risbane indie outfit The Belligerents is heading to the Coast to perform at Solbar tonight. It’s been a whirlwind of a year for the group. It’s received high rotation on Triple J with its latest two singles, In My Way and Voices. Most recently its released an EP OUTSIDE:INSIDE which was engineered

by bass player Konstantin Kersting. “The EP was written and recorded over the past three years,’’ Kersting says. “A lot of stuff happened in that time. We split with our long time manager and at one point we were all pretty sure that we weren’t going to continue making music as The Belligerents. “It was only when we went back into the studio and started recording these new songs that we started feeling passionate about the whole thing again.’’ The Belligerents will perform tonight, December 4.

FRESH TAKE ON A FAVOURITE Peter Atkinson from AAP reviews the KIA RIO SPORT


io Sport. Is it: a) something to do with next year’s Olympics; b)a special kind of athletic bra, or c) a top-selling small car? Well, if you answered all three, take a bow.

But it’s the latter that we’re here to talk about. A smart-looking midlife addition to Korean maker Kia’s small car arsenal, the Rio Sport is aimed at pumping some fresh life into an already successful model. And while Kia has impressed us no

end with its emergence as a producer of high-quality, high-value vehicles, it’s little cars like this one that in many ways still define the company. The Rio nameplate has been with Kia since the turn of the milennium, accounting for almost four million sales in that time.

That’s despite some pretty ordinary machines wearing the moniker – including the rather awkward, bulbouslooking half-wagon, half-hatchback first attempt at a hatchback, that was first to wear the nameplate. It was cheap and cheerful and looked it. Well, cheap at least. The model that replaced it in 2005 was a far more conventional, nicelystyled hatchback that helped signal Kia’s coming-of-age as a brand – and sold in numbers comparable to its Korean half-brother, the phenomenal Hyundai Getz. The current, third-generation Rio has continued that theme of all-round improvement, jumping up a couple of rungs in style, quality, technology and finish. It first hit the market in 2011 and has just undergone a midlife facelift – with the Rio Sport designation being part of that refresh. The Sport is available only in three-door configuration (other models including the newly-introduced SLi flagship version also offer a five-door hatchback) – and gets the same impressive mechanicals that we’ve previously appreciated in this model. continued on page 46>

<from page 43 The Korean-built, 1.6-litre GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) engine is perky and responsive with a generous 106 kilowatts on tap, backed up by a less imposing 167 Newton metres of torque. A six-speed auto is standard. It’s a drivetrain to match virtually any in this class, revving willingly while never allowing noise or harshness to become intrusive. It’s virtually the same engine as you’ll find in the funky Hyundai Veloster – and it gives the Rio spirited, zippy performance that at least partly justifies the Sport moniker. It also handles predictably with nicely-weighted steering, decent brakes and a sturdy, well-resolved ride. Inside, the ‘sport’ adornments are pretty superficial, to be honest. The automatic gearshift gets some red plastic highlights to make it look racy, while seats gain some red highlight stitching on the synthetic leather trim; and there are the obligatory alloy pedals. Cruise control, daytime running lights and alloys are also part of the bargain, while the music lovers will enjoy the Bluetooth connectivity and USB integration.

“It’s little cars like this one that in many ways still define the company”

The Sport also offers an exclusive paint colour – known as Digital Yellow – which didn’t exactly win my heart (perhaps confirming that I’m hardly in their target market). What does make the Sport worth a decent look is the suite of safety equipment generously crammed into its $21,490 pricetag. You’ll find ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist; electronic stability control and traction control, vehicle management system, hill-start assist plus six airbags. Importantly, that makes the Rio Sport a reassuring choice for the young, first-time drivers who are likely to form a big part of its market.

For those shopping further up the tree, the new SLi ($22,990) adds leather seats, reverse parking sensors, rainsensing wipers and climate control airconditioning. The Rio has also added a new entry-level variant, the S, which for $15,990 gets less power via a 1.4-litre engine, and the choice of six-speed manual or older-style four-speed auto. There’s also an S-Premium model with upgraded equipment at $17,690 – but not until you’re prepared to pay beyond the $20,000 mark will you get the bigger, more advanced 1.6-litre engine and accompanying six-speed auto. I guess that makes it a slightly exclusive Sport as well.

KIA RIO SPORT HOW BIG? It’s a modestly-sized small hatchback, ideal for young singles, particularly because the Sport designation only offers a three-door hatchback configuration. Still, rear-seats are quite generous and easily accessed. HOW FAST? Not as fast as the Sport name might suggest, but the 1.6-litre, four-cylinder engine is a very good one. It won’t burn up the bitumen but it certainly gets the little Kia up and rolling nicely, with decent levels of quietness and refinement. HOW THIRSTY? Official thirst is 6.1L/100km which is decent for a smallish machine. The six-speed auto means it’s even more frugal on a highway trip. HOW MUCH? The tricked-up sport will cost $21,490 plus onroads; but if your budget is smaller you can buy the entry-level S for just under $16k.

ork has begun on the $100 million Halcyon Lakeside over 50s community in Bli Bli. Earthworks are underway with construction set to start in March on the site which is located on a 13 ha parcel of land within the masterplanned Parklakes 2 community. It is the company’s first lakefront project on the Sunshine Coast. Project director Chris Carley says the developer has already received significant interest from prospective home owners. “The surrounding area is a hive of activity with work progressing on Parklakes 2 so it is an exciting time to be moving forward onsite. “Our Lakeside project will provide buyers with more choice in a growing area that is renowned for its relaxed lifestyle, great amenities and popularity with retirees.’’ Sunshine Coast councillor Steve Robinson says the


Councillor Steve Robinson with project director Chris Carley. project is a coup for Bli Bli. “The project will provide diversity in the suburb’s housing options and meet demand for quality, affordable homes for seniors. “It’s great to see the project going ahead at the hands of a developer which has forged a strong and enduring presence in the area.”

HOME BUILDING FIGURES The Housing Industry Association’s latest research predicts new home building may have reached a summit. Chief economist Dr Harley Dale says there was a record 212,000 dwelling commencements in 2014/2015. He says a key message from the Spring 2015 Housing Industry Association National Outlook is that

2015/16 will be another very healthy year for commencements. “Renovations investment is forecast to grow by 3.7 per cent in 2015/16 following marginal growth – from a decade low – over the last two years,” he says. “Meanwhile the rate of growth in residential property prices has peaked, in our assessment.’’

More than 450 residents are expected to call new Sippy Downs residential development Flame Tree Pocket home. The first intake of residents are now moving into the estate, which sold the first four stages in record time. Reed Property Group chief executive Jay Emmerton says he looks forward to seeing the community come to life over the coming weeks as construction continues on stages one and two. “With rental vacancies remaining tight and weekly rents on the incline, it’s no surprise many Sunshine Coast residents have turned their attention to purchasing property and stepping out of the rental market,’’ he says. He says figures show that more than $14 million in Great Start Grants — a $15,000 government-funded incentive to buy or build a new home — had been awarded to first home buyers on the Sunshine Coast. “The Sunshine Coast is certainly seeing its fair share of buyers taking advantage of this offering, with close to 1,000 applications having been approved since the initiative launched in 2012. “We have already seen several first-home owners take advantage of what Flame Tree Pocket has on offer and we expect this number will continue to rise as the demand for affordable housing escalates on the Coast.”

OFFSHORE: Most close in reefs are working well at dawn and dusk for parrot, sweetlip and cod using squid and cut fish fillets. The Barwon Banks are also returning squire, pearlies and mixed reef fish on pillies, squid and seven inch plastics jigged off the bottom. There are bait schools galore from Coolum to Currimundi which will bring on the larger Spanish mackerel.

FRESHWATER: Lake Borumba is firing for saratoga on flies and shallow trolled divers with small bass and golden perch taking medium divers in the late afternoon along rock faces and weed drop offs. Lake Macdonald is another impoundment working well for lures trolled along the weed line opposite the boat ramp for Mary River cod, golden perch and bass up to two kilos.

OK, looks like there actually might be a few waves around on the weekend. I would head straight towards DI as it appears to be an east swell and the Rainbow side of DI loves an east swell. Now if you do not have a 4WD don’t worry. Just hit the beach at low tide. I remember in the 80s it was not unusual to see Holden Kingswoods driving up the beach . Pipeline starts next week with quite a few contenders for the world title. Whatever happens I hope Fanning doesn’t fall just short! The shark encounter in J Bay was not split as it should have been which meant Fanning and Wilson were given 1000 points less than they deserved.

FISHING REPORT with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World

ESTUARY: Whiting are taking yabbies when cast onto the same banks that yabbies were pumped from, as the tide come in, and the banks around Goat Island are returning fish up to 600 grams. You can get mangrove jack on livies and lures amongst the snags up in Petrie and Eudlo Creeks. Jew are in the deeper holes. SURF: Sand whiting and dart are working the low tide gutters along Maroochy North Shore using pippies and worms. Jew are on the night tides at Pincushion with tailor feeding with them.

TAURUS [Apr 21-May 21] Don’t accept things at face value. With the new moon and Saturn stimulating your research/mystery zone, look beneath the surface – and do some background briefing – to discover what’s really going on. Work will also be challenging, so make sure you pay attention.

GEMINI [May 22-Jun 21] Get ready for a relationship renaissance, as the new moon kick-starts your love life. Attached twins will shift into a new phase of a partnership, while some singles finally meet their long-term partner. But – with Saturn in the picture – it won’t all be smooth sailing.

CANCER [Jun 22-Jul 23] Expect others to resist your plans early in the week (especially at home or work). Avoid responding with anger, or getting caught up in pointless power struggles. Instead, find fun physical outlets for your pent-up energy.

LEO [Jul 24-Aug 23] This week Uranus trines the sun (your ruling planet) so you’re keen to experiment and explore … and it’s also vital to express the authentic you. Friday’s new moon encourages you to tap into your muse and be the creative cat you were born to be.

VIRGO [Aug 24-Sep 23] Your ruling planet Mercury moves into conscientious Capricorn (from Thursday until January 2) which suits you just fine, as you concentrate on fine-tuning detailed work and completing practical projects. But are you being subjective about a money issue?

LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23] Usually laidback Librans are feeling restless, as Mars and Uranus fire up some divine discontent. Impulsive behaviour could backfire though so try to balance being spontaneous with smart decisions. If you are attached, you’re in the mood to rock the boat but is that best?

SCORPIO [Oct 24-Nov 22] On Monday you could find yourself consumed by desires, when your possessive side takes over. If you hold onto loved ones too tightly, they’ll just try to escape. Remember Venus is vamping through your sign (until December 30) so aim to be charming and cooperative.

SAGITTARIUS [Nov 23-Dec 21] Have people been talking you down and celebrating your mistakes? Some family, friends and colleagues won’t be happy with your choices (or dreams for the future) but you must suit yourself, not others. So don’t pay attention to the criticism that comes your way this week.

CAPRICORN [Dec 22-Jan 20] Tricky aspects make for a challenging start to the week, when others question your motives. Wednesday is a wonderful day to take some risks – especially at home or work. If you are too cautious, you’ll miss an opportunity to make positive changes.

AQUARIUS [Jan 21-Feb 19] Tuesday until Thursday is a terrific time to do something unexpected, as Uranus unleashes the Aquarian within. So explore, experiment, invent, innovate … and grab life with both hands. You need to think twice about posting controversial comments online.

PISCES [Feb 20-Mar 20] How’s your career going? With the new moon activating your job zone, you need to have a think about adjustments that would improve your work experience. Follow your intuition – it will point you in the right direction. But don’t be slapdash and take short-cuts.



ACROSS 1 8 9 10 11 12 14 17 19 21 22 23

ARIES [Mar 21-Apr 20] Using guilt to get what you want is never a good idea. If you do, then expect others to reciprocate with manipulative behaviour of their own! Wednesday looks wonderful, as you do your own thing in your highly individual and adventurous Aries way.
