Win

Fashionistas, put your feet first. Thanks to our friends at FRANKiE4, we are giving one lucky reader the chance to win a $300 gift voucher to indulge in new footwear. FRANKIE4 is the brainchild of Brisbane podiatrist and physiotherapist, Caroline McCulloch, who has solved the problem that has plagued women for decades – how to enjoy the fashion of a high heel, yet still feel comfortable all day long. Her breakthrough collection embodies hidden support comfort and an innovative design.

FROM THE EDITOR

A

s a parent, and someone who has lost a loved one to cancer, this week’s cover story struck an emotional chord. Elki Guymer has one of those adorable, toddler faces, which pulls on your heartstrings. She is only four and yet she has faced more obstacles than people decades older. This innocent and vivacious little girl is in the fight of her life – battling leukaemia. Without the generous blood donations from members of the community, Elki would not have survived past her third birthday. This is why the work of Sunshine Coast blood donor group Team Adem is vital. The team is headed up by Brent and Lu Crosby, activists who have campaigned and devoted endless hours to the cause, which is a legacy to their son Adem. Sadly, Adem was only 19 when he lost his battle against leukaemia. The Crosbys are living every parent’s worst nightmare – they have faced adversity – and yet continue to raise awareness. To date, they have helped save the lives of 50,000 people. Leigh Robshaw shares their touching and brave stories. With winter now well and truly upon us, we have taken the opportunity to share some of our favourite seasonal tips and trends in our monthly My Home section. Meanwhile, we have great giveaways plus plenty of local news, entertainment and lifestyle in this edition. Happy reading.

QUICK CHAT

GREENER PASTURES Where on the Sunshine Coast do you live? On five acres in Eerwah Vale. First job? An accountant. What are you currently working on? I am trying to figure out how to embed design-led thinking into a large organisation. Your family includes… Husband James, twins Sam and Grace, aged 11, and Max, the chatty one, aged 10. Do you have a nickname? Biscuit and Jacster. First car? The purple people eater, a 1973 Toyota Corolla. Favourite book? I loved My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell as a child. Recently I enjoyed Burial Rites by Hannah Kent.

IMAGE: TRACY NAUGHTON

What are you reading now? I have two on the go – To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (I have never read this classic) and a business book, 10 Must Reads on Innovation by Harvard Business Review.

River, four-wheel drive up North Shore, drive to Kenilworth via Montville and Maleny, swim in Booloumba Creek, dinner at Spirit House, drinks at Eumundi Imperial Hotel and lunch at Ricky’s. If you could change one thing on the Coast what would it be? Faster internet and better mobile reception. Best day in your life? The day I met James. It wasn’t a particularly amazing day, but amazing things came of it. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? It was November 20, 2006. James and I landed in Adelaide from England. We left good jobs, friends and his family behind. I was heavily pregnant with Max and the twins were only one. Neither James nor I had jobs lined up. We immediately bought an old Pajero and started the long drive towards the Sunshine Coast. We soon got sand bogged in Coorong, but it was an exciting day as our young family life in Australia began.

“It’s OK to make mistakes. You’re human. You’re kind. Everything will be alright”

Favourite song? Such a hard question. Totally depends on the time of day – whether there’s a coffee cup or wine glass in hand, the company of friends or strangers, and the mood I am seeking. At our wedding, our first dance song was What a Wonderful World. I guess I am sentimental.

Best advice you’ve been given? Be true to yourself and kind to others. How long have you lived on the Sunshine Coast? Since 1979, but I have also lived in Alice Springs, Brisbane, London and Bristol in the UK. Why do you live here? Deep roots. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? It’s a secret. Where do you take visitors when they come to the Coast? Drive up to Point Glorious lookout, climb Mt Eerwah, bushwalk in Noosa National Park, cruise Noosa

Your greatest regret? Not having enough ‘me’ time, which often translates to time with close friends.

What achievement are you most proud of? I can still do a cartwheel. You are happiest when? My family is happy. What frustrates you the most? A messy house. How do you deal with your frustrations? I shove the mess into cupboards and under the bed just before people arrive. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? It’s OK to make mistakes. You’re human. You’re kind. Everything will be alright. What is your preference, tea or coffee and how do you have it? Both. English breakfast tea, with milk, swiftly followed by a strong flat white with fat milk. Honey sometimes. NRL or AFL and who do you follow? I prefer tennis.

It also helps her to become OK with needles. She sees that mummy and daddy are doing it, so she doesn’t feel as bad.” If you’ve ever considered donating blood, Lisa has an important message for you: “Elki has to have blood tests every two weeks to check on her blood counts. If a little four-year-old can have her vein accessed every two weeks, I think adults can too.

patient to be seen at the Adem Crosby Centre when she went for her annual checkup. This state-of-the-art cancer care centre at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital bears her son’s name. “I had three blood transfusions,” Lu says. “I can speak first-hand, I was a blood donor for Team Adem, and then I became a blood recipient. I’m very grateful to all the generous blood donors out there who enabled me to recover from my harsh treatment. “If donors were to donate just four times a year, it would make a life-saving difference to 12 people,” Brent says. “We’ve spent hundreds of hours in oncology wards seeing people receive blood product transfusions. Many of these patients would struggle to survive if they didn’t receive these blood products. Cancer treatment is pretty hard – it kills off all of your healthy cells along with the bad cells, so the transfusions become a life-saving necessity.” If you’ve ever wondered where your money goes when you donate to a charity, there’s no question what happens with your blood when you donate. During a regular donation, you give around 470 millilitres of whole blood – about eight per cent of your blood volume, which the body replaces within 24 to 48 hours. You can donate whole blood, plasma or platelets and your blood can be made into 22 medical treatments. “Several weeks ago I donated platelets,” Brent says. “The Red Cross Blood Service now sends you a text message when your blood goes to a recipient. A few days after my donation, I received a text saying my donation was being used at Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital. It was highly likely my platelet donation would have gone to a child with a cancer diagnosis.” A child just like Elki, who charms everyone she meets at the Blood Donor Centre, with her beautiful eyes and brown curls, which have grown back after 18 months of chemotherapy. She has one more year of treatment left, but thankfully, the treatment appears to be working. “She is mostly in the clear but it’s still quite scary because we see a lot of children

Taylah Iles from Chancellor State College with Jana Clelland, Donor Services Nursing Assistant • National Blood Donor Week is held between June 12 to 18 and is a celebration of Australia’s 500,000 blood donors who together make 1.3 million donations each year. • World Blood Donor Day is celebrated globally on June 14. • Cancer patients are the nation’s largest users of blood, with more than 85,000 donations needed every week to support them. • Blood donation is a proud Australian tradition and has been going strong for 88 years. • Every blood donation helps to save three lives. • Demand for blood and blood products will grow by 100 per cent over the next 10 years.

Team Adem is the Coast’s biggest blood donor community and the largest Red25 Blood Donation Community in Australia. Sunshine Coast teen Adem Crosby founded Team Adem in 2011 to raise money to help support families of seriously ill children diagnosed with cancer. They’ve raised $750,000, which has been used to help a number of organisations including the Leukaemia Foundation. But Team Adem’s most significant achievement is its blood donation community which in May, reached the incredible milestone of 50,000 lives saved. “Adem said to us, wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could save 3000 lives in a year,” Adem’s mum Lu Crosby says. “He thought it would be amazing to reach that goal. We surpassed that goal within months of his passing.” “We are proud to say that Team Adem blood donors make a life-saving difference to over 1200 Australians every month,” says Brent Crosby, Adem’s dad. More than 50,000 people have read Adem’s heart-wrenching Facebook post of September 10, 2012, which he wrote after being told he had only three months to live. His words of love and gratitude and his plea for blood donation touched the hearts of many and gave momentum to the charity. “Adem was an incredibly inspirational young man,” Brent says. “Through so much adversity, he never thought about himself, he thought about others. Even with months to live, he was still out there helping others. Adem received over 350 blood transfusions, and that’s not uncommon. Cancer patients are the highest users of blood products. “Keep in mind that unfortunately, not everyone overcomes their illnesses and while they’re continuing to be treated, they require blood products. Even though they won’t recover, it gives them extra time with their families so they can accumulate precious memories. When Adem was told his treatment options were exhausted and he was given just three months to live, he

When you choose to stop working, will you have enough to keep living?

Adem Crosby lived another eight months and thanks to blood transfusions, we spent quality time as a family.” “On Adem’s first day of diagnosis, he received five bags of blood,” says Lu. “Adem, throughout his journey, realised the importance of blood donation and was so grateful to the blood donors who enabled him to be with us longer.” “When he was first diagnosed, people wanted to give him money,” Brent says. “He said, ‘I don’t need money or material things, but you can donate blood’. The Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service has now joined Team Adem’s blood donation community. “If someone out there could sacrifice just four hours a year, it really is going to make a difference. We’re incredibly thankful for the support our blood donation community receives. Together we are all making such a huge difference to the lives of so many people. “For us, it’s not about stopping at 50,000 lives saved,” says Lu. “We would like to keep going and save 100,000 lives. It’s a huge amount when you think about it. We will just do the best we can and continue to inspire people to donate blood.”

COAST FACILITIES AND WEATHER PERFECT FOR CRICKETERS Sunshine Coast Council’s Elizabeth Daniels Sport Complex played host to the Australian Women’s Cricket Team from May 29 to June 2 for their final week of preparation leading into the ICC Women’s World Cup in England. Southern Stars cricket captain Meg Lanning says the team is really excited to spend some valuable time on the Coast as they put the final touches on their World Cup preparations. “The facilities here are first class and the weather is even better, so we’ll be looking to get some match practice in and make the most of the time we have on the Sunshine Coast,” she says.

The happy winners couldn’t contain their excitement and laughter when a Golden Casket official broke the news to them as they were getting ready for work. The happy woman, who wished to remain anonymous, exclaimed, “You’re joking. No way. Really? How much? Oh my God. Can you say it one more time? I love it when you say that figure.” The couple purchased their winning 18-game marked entry at NewsExtra in Bli Bli.

NEW SUNNYKIDS MENTORING PROGRAM PILOT SunnyKids has announced a new pilot program, Village Buddies. A partnership between SunnyKids and The Board Meeting has seen the creation of the program, which provides children with another positive adult in their lives. It could be about kicking a ball, playing chess or eating fish and chips, but it will always be about a vulnerable child getting access to the support they need. SunnyKids founder and CEO Chris Turner says if vulnerable children can experience a strong sense of belonging, they have a real chance to reach their full potential. “Often, all that is needed is a bit of extra time with an adult who believes in them, helps raise their self-esteem and instills a belief that they really can succeed.”

tudents at Buderim Mountain State School have had their whole perception of school turned around thanks to an innovative sports mentoring program. The SunnyKids program, which was funded by a Buderim Foundation community grant, offered students mentoring with a martial arts component to help build self-esteem, self-efficacy and resilience. SunnyKids CEO Chris Turner says sport not only keeps kids fit and gives them a break from computer screens, but it also provides opportunities for social growth. “We are now discovering extra benefits when sporting activity is enhanced with qualified mentoring and guidance. These include improved emotional and behavioural responses,” he says. “We saw this benefit extend to the wider school community and we know there was also a benefit to the children’s siblings and their families. “We were able to support these outcomes with survey data that confirmed 100 per cent of students completed every session and 100 per cent of students stated they had a noticeable increase in confidence and a better understanding of health.” After seeing the work carried out by Bobby and Katrina Wilson from Awesome Wilson Boxing, Dave Larkin, better known as Chappy Dave, says the 10 boys participating in the program began looking forward to their Tuesday afternoons. “They all get in, work hard, focus as a team and discipline themselves as individuals. To see them test their strength, fitness and performance, which then in

The foundation is a not-for-profit organisation with a team of more than 50 volunteers that seeks to build a stronger community by harnessing the power of giving and distributing grants for worthy community projects. Applications are now open for not-for-profit organisations providing services or undertaking projects that benefit the Buderim community.

GYMNASTS BAND TOGETHER AFTER FIRE After a fire burnt its premises to the ground, Maroochy Beach Gymnastics realises its members are what matter most. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

K

arleigh Fraser returned from the Gymnastics National Championships in Melbourne with a swag of medals and was celebrating her selection into the Australian team when her beloved club was burned to the ground. Maroochy Beach Gymnastics, which has more than 1000 members, caught fire during work on the club’s $2 million renovation. Sunshine Coast fire investigators believe the blaze was caused by sparks from welding equipment, which ignited the highly flammable floor mats. Luckily, classes had been cancelled for the day, so there were no families in the gym at the time and therefore, there were no injuries. Fraser and the three other athletes who represented the club at the Nationals – Kobi Thompson, Harrison Williams and Hannah Dwan – are still reeling from the fact they do not have a club to train in for upcoming competitions. Fraser, 16, came first on vault, third on bars, all around, and beam, fourth on floor and was named third overall in Australia. Her next competition on the national team in New Zealand is going to be her most challenging yet. Thompson, who returned at 1am on the morning of the May 28 fire, says he openly wept when he saw the 20-metre smoke plumes coming out of his beloved gym. The 16-year-old had just secured gold in the parallel bars and second in teams at the nationals and had yet to share his great news with fellow gymnasts before the fire took hold. “It still doesn’t feel real, when I pull up here, I still expect to see the building as it was, I still don’t expect to see it all caved

Harrison Williams, Kobi Thompson, Karleigh Fraser and Hannah Dwan with their National Championship medals in,” he says. Thompson is on a mission to attend the Valeri Luikin Invitational in Las Vegas early next year and says he is more determined than ever to do his best for the club. Williams, 13, was the national champion last year and this time around, returned with a third in rings and second in teams and Dwan, 12, came seventh on the floor and fourth in teams. Maroochy Beach Gymnastics president Peter Dwan says the four athletes were joined by mens coach Gennadiy Tseryshenko and ladies coach Vladimir Joura to make up the largest contingent representing the club at the nationals “in a very long time.”

Dwan says the fire has come at a time when the club was reaching new heights and the raw emotion among staff and members alike was palpable as they came to grips with the long road to recovery ahead of them. Maroochy Beach Gymnastics committee members have been in contact with other Coast clubs in order to accommodate the weekly classes. Competitive athletes who train 20 hours a week have been using home gyms and regularly visiting the High Performance Centre in Brisbane. “One thing it has been, though, is a solidifying moment and it has really brought everyone close together. It just proves that the club is not just a building, it’s the people and we still have a really strong club.” Dwan says the shock of the accident was beginning to transform into a renewed energy to begin the rebuild, with continued talks with insurance companies and builders to pave a way forward. A GoFundMe account with a $10,000 target has been set up for the club to begin to cover these costs as well as to begin to recoup some of the $500,000 worth of equipment that was lost.

Hot 91.1 have created a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to get the club back on their feet. While insurance will cover the rebuild, the money raised through the GoFundMe campaign will go towards purchasing equipment to use immediately and to cover the cost of rent for the 12 months it is expected to take to rebuild.

MY OPINION

A SNAPPY WAY TO KEEP YOUR COOL

IT’S TIME TO GET CONNECTED

Sami Muirhead says calm voices are the way to go when dealing with kids, but if you find that difficult, try the hairband trick.

Maintaining a happy relationship with your partner is about creating positive interactions, explains Dr Rhiannon Bell.

W

hat do you think of your child’s teacher? Because I have my six-year-old girl’s teacher on somewhat of a pedestal and think she may be part Jedi because she seems to be able to control an entire classroom of tiny people without ever raising her voice. I stand and watch transfixed most mornings as the ritual of the day unfolds. Mrs B waves her fingers when she wants the classroom’s attention. Yes. Waves her fingers in the air, her 10 digits wriggling like caterpillars as they send out silent messages to gag the children. The students seem to respond within seconds, quietly waving their fingers back at her in their secret communication that no one else really understands. It is like some wonderful whirling dervish dance and I am transfixed and bemused by it all. Let me tell you, if I waved my fingers at home I would be totally ignored. I know this because when I shout like a fishmonger’s wife, I am totally ignored. When I demand they listen to me, I am totally ignored. When my head starts spinning around on my neck as if I am possessed by the devil I am still ignored. The only way to get their attention some days is to threaten to turn off the TV. Then I become somebody. So why is Mrs B so good at getting their attention? I do not have a witty or intelligent answer for you, but I do know the best

teaching and parenting for all parties seems to be done in calm voices. Somehow these soothing voices seem to have real authority and children understand they would be better messing with Voldemort himself rather than taking on the composed leader. Robert Brault once said: “A child seldom needs a good talking to as a good listening to.” Sounds good in theory, but when you are tired and know you still have a trillion things to get done, it is sometimes hard not to shout like a crazy person and in the process have absolutely no grace or self-control. A mum in the United States is making news because of her new ‘hairband trick’, which has stopped her snapping at her kids. The trick involves placing five hairbands around your wrist, which you move to your other arm if you snap at your child. You can earn hairbands back by engaging in fun ways reconnect with your child, such as playing with them or giving them a hug. The research shows you train yourself to talk with kindness and love in your voice to your child instead of anger and frustration, even when they are being really annoying. No one likes yelling. I feel rubbish if I have raised my voice at my kid and I am sure they do not feel like world beaters either. So maybe the hair elastic system is worth a try. The only problem will be of course finding five bands. Ours all seem to be on holidays with odd socks, the Tupperware containers and the missing four umbrellas of the house.

T

hanks to technology, we are more connected with the world than we have ever been. But sadly, many feel more lonely and disconnected than ever before. We wake in the morning and reach out for our smartphone instead of our partner, respond to work emails before our children, and check in with Instagram over our own selves. By tuning in with a cyberworld that’s tirelessly flirting for our attention, we tune out from those who most deserve our devotion. At the Psychology Cafe, we see many men and women who feel disconnected in their relationships. The cycle is a common one. The demands of work, bills and children consume our attention, schedules misalign, harsh words are spoken, hearts are wounded, walls are built, resentment breeds, and withdrawal becomes the norm. Lifeline’s 2016 Loneliness Survey found that 60 per cent of Australians often feel lonely, and despite an increase in our digital relationships, respondents described feeling “more lonely than ever before”. Loneliness isn’t so much about a lack of relationships, but more a lack of true connection in relationships. When speaking of the disconnect felt within their marriage, many couples describe not feeling understood by their partner, having very little time for each other, and a lack of true intimacy in their relationship. According to relationship researchers John and Julie Gottman, there are different

types of interactions that contribute to or detract from our connection bank account. Positive and negative interactions are like income and expenses. Four decades of couples research has revealed that when conflict occurs in a marriage, a positive interaction deposits $1 in your account, while a negative interaction withdraws $5. To compensate for the loss, healthy connections require a 5:1 ratio between positive and negative interactions. The stronger the connection bank account, the more likely couples are to work together to solve problems (typically when conflict occurs). In the absence of conflict, successful relationships maintain a 20:1 ratio of positive to negative interactions, often described as ‘bids’ for connection. The Gottmans’ research has revealed that happy couples can make up to 100 bids for connection over the course of a meal. A smile, brush of the hand, open-ended question, kiss and eye contact are some of the ways we can make a bid for connection. If you’re struggling to remember the last time you felt a genuine connection with your partner, it’s time to bridge the gap. It’s never too late to repair, and enhance, the bond that once existed. Prioritise your relationship, turn towards your partner, tune into their needs, make regular bids for connection, and seek to genuinely hear, value and see them for the person they are.

We can help you choose investments that will age well

MY HEALTH

DESIGNING YOUR NEW FUTURE Jodi Chapman says when things don’t go to plan, it’s important to remove self-imposed limits and create the life you want.

S

ometimes unexpected events deliver twists and turns, leading to places you may never have imagined, some good, some great, and sometimes not so great. Your belief, how you’ve imagined your future, based on family or environmental influences, is at the core of every decision you’ve made to arrive at the present you have today. When what you believe your plan should be doesn’t come to fruition, in the time frame that you’d like it to, you have two choices. You can choose to review your beliefs, and make a new path, or you can get caught in that place between belief and reality, where the two don’t match, which may bring on feelings of grief and loss, anxiety, and sadness, or intense stress. If you stay too long, it often leads to depression, poor health, fatigue, insomnia and possibly a downward spiral toward a difficult path. Letting go of lifelong beliefs, removing the

self-imposed limits, and designing your new future can be an exciting adventure. Seeing new opportunities rather than loss may be difficult at first, but with a little planning, seeing a positive future is not that far away. For some, the physical impact of extreme stress has a biochemical effect, lowering the body’s immune and adrenal function to a level where nutrients and hormones become too low to recover, creating a depressive state that is now biochemical, requiring nutritional and hormonal rebuilding. Not all stress related situations are manageable through mindset and motivation, when the body is too exhausted to respond. Supporting your body is equally important to getting back the life and happiness you once had.

STUDY: MAKEUP GOOD FOR SKIN The Australasian College of Dermatologists has released new research that suggests makeup can help reduce the effects of sun on the skin. It’s not just solar radiation (UVA and UVB) that’s bad for the skin. The sun also emits infrared radiation, which can lead to lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. Sunscreen is essential, but the study says coloured cosmetics – foundation, concealer, blush and lipstick – add another layer of protection.

FROM THE MAYOR

From our hinterland to our various coastal towns and villages, we all know some great businesses that operate here on our Sunshine Coast. They are the special places that offer fantastic service, exceptional products, a fabulous location, valuable knowledge and experience or even a combination of all four. Council is honoured to again be the platinum partner in the 2017 Sunshine Coast Business and Tourism Awards, which highlight the excellence, diversity and entrepreneurship that exists across our region. The people who run and staff our businesses – small, medium and large – are amazing ambassadors for the Sunshine Coast. They represent the innovative spirit that complements our enviable lifestyle so perfectly. The 2017 Sunshine Coast Business and Tourism Awards, which have just been launched, celebrate our vibrant business community and honour those who have excelled in our healthy, smart, creative region. Please take the time to nominate a Coast business via council’s website and help them receive the accolades they deserve.

The Langs building team is ready to welcome new recruits. From left: Josh Simon, Russell Weir, Dan McCracken and Geoff Gordon

JOBS FOR THE COAST A new $20-million, purpose-built Langs Building Supplies store at Caloundra will create 100 new jobs for our region. The new facility will replicate the operations of the company’s existing facility at Yatala, south of Brisbane, which has been in operation since 1976. The new facility at Caloundra will include a drive-through trade store, bulk building supplies and on-site manufacturing of roof trusses, wall frames, floor trusses and aluminium windows and doors which will supply the Sunshine Coast’s trades and building sector. To be ready for a July opening, Langs need to find quality staff for a wide range of positions including clerical, sales, factory workers, truck drivers, forklift drivers and more. Langs have plans to grow the Sunshine Coast business to 250 staff in the future. Anyone interested in applying to work for Langs can email careers@langs.net.au.

BOXES OF COLOUR You may notice a bit of extra colour popping up at many of our major Coast intersections. Council’s latest public art project will see 32 traffic signal boxes located right across the region given a creative coat of paint. The designs from local artists contribute to our growing Public Art Collection.

BRIDGE HELPS SAFETY A new dedicated cycle and pedestrian bridge across Eudlo Creek on David Low Way has been officially opened to provide a safe and easy route between Maroochydore and Bli Bli. Council selected an innovative design and construction solution to minimise disruption to the existing vegetation and local environment. The State Government contributed $2.24 million towards the project.

PROJECT UPDATE

TOWN’S STEP FORWARD A vibrant public space for community and visitors to gather to enjoy events, outdoor dining, public art, landscaping, shade trees and lighting in a safe, slow speed, walkable street environment. That what’s coming for Pacific Paradise as part of a streetscape upgrade scheduled to start in late June. The council project will deliver significant embellishments to Timari Street, Menzies Drive and the service road beside David Low Way to enliven this local town centre to benefit businesses and traders well into the future. Council developed a streetscape plan for the revitalisation of the Pacific Paradise Commercial Precinct in 2016, in consultation with the local business community. Tony Brown, of Maroochy North Shore Realty, said the project was an exciting step forward for Pacific Paradise and the North Shore area. “The creation of a genuine destination in our village heart is something that will benefit everyone,” Mr Brown says.

OUR 50TH YEAR

‘HONEST FRANK’ WAS OUR MAN OF THE PEOPLE The Queensland Premier who enthusiastically embraced the idea of changing the name of the North Coast to the Sunshine Coast, Frank Nicklin was part of the fabric of the area and a favourite son of Palmwoods, writes Dot Whittington.

Nambour Ambulance Station was officially opened by Frank Nicklin in the early 1960s

S

ir George Francis Reuben Nicklin KCMG, MM, LL.D. is a name that is firmly stamped on the Sunshine Coast but for the residents who knew him, it was simply “Frank”. There were many aspects to the man – soldier, farmer, lobbyist, politician, sportsman and all-round good bloke. He never lost sight of his agricultural roots or his love for his community – Palmwoods and the Sunshine Coast. There were few events during the 1950s-1970s that didn’t have his name on them. When the Kenilworth councillor and aspiring Maroochy Shire chairman, his friend Eddie De Vere, mentioned the idea of re-naming the North Coast region the Sunshine Coast in early 1966, Nicklin responded: “I think you are on a winner.” He supported the concept from the beginning. Nicklin was born in Murwillumbah in 1895, and in 1910, moved with his family to Beerwah to help his father, a former newspaper proprietor, on his banana farm. He enrolled in the army at 21 and after serving with distinction on the Western front

– Lieutenant-Colonel Nicklin was awarded the Military Medal for bravery – returned to Queensland in 1919 and bought an eight hectare pineapple farm at Palmwoods under the soldier-settlement scheme. In 1921, he married Georgina Fleming from Beerwah (she died in 1960), but they did not have any children. During the 1920s and Depression years, Nicklin’s farm succeeded where many failed and his involvement in many state and local fruit growers’ associations, usually as an office bearer, led him to Country Party politics. One resident later recalled that during the 1920s and ’30s, Nicko, as his team mates knew him, “strode as purposefully and successfully” on to the cricket arenas, the tennis courts and into the lifesaving conference rooms as he did in later years through the Queensland Parliament. His regard for sport was completely dedicated and has left an indelible mark on the sporting records of the North Coast. “How Frank Nicklin found time for his numerous sporting commitments will never be fully understood but he threw himself with

gusto into the North Coast Lifesaving movement.” Nicklin was first elected to Murrumba in 1932 and remained there until 1950, when he became the Member for Landsborough. He was respected for his “honesty of purpose and character”. In 1941, he became party leader and despite losing five elections while Queensland opposition leader, became Queensland Premier in 1956, a job he held until sickness, likely stemming from being gassed in the trenches as a young man, forced his resignation at 72 in January 1968. Earning the nickname “Honest Frank” he had a knack for “saying ‘no’ in a very pleasant manner” and although he could crack the whip, was widely considered a personable leader who always had time to listen. Ultimately, he presided over the most tranquil decade in 20th century Queensland politics. Sir Thomas Hiley eulogised, “whatever was accomplished from 1957 to 1968 was largely due to his leadership and to the force of his example. He showed real wisdom and sound judgement” while the Landsborough MLA and later premier Mike Ahern said, “Sir Francis Nicklin was an extraordinary person and in the best sense of the term, he was a man of the people.” Frank Nicklin died at Sundale in Nambour on January 29, 1978, aged 83 years. Sundale had benefited greatly from his interest and generosity right from its beginning and Nicklin Lodge, where he spent his latter years, was named for him. This “distinguished citizen of Palmwoods” was honoured in 1979, with the opening of the Sir Francis Nicklin Memorial Clock which still presides over the town.

THIS MONTH IN HISTORY

Nicklin Way was a simple bitumen strip

The Nicklin Way was officially opened by the Queensland Premier, Frank Nicklin, on June 5, 1965. The project included the construction of two concrete bridges spanning the Mooloolah River and Currimundi Lake and a third bridge taking the traffic over Tucker’s Creek at Mooloolaba.

DID YOU KNOW? • David Williams planted bananas and later oranges, calling his orchard Orangerania. He is reported as being the first person to use barbed wire on Mapleton, walking beside his horse from Nambour with the coil of wire balanced on the saddle. • In February 1997, Transport and Main Roads Minister Vaughan Johnson announced a $5 million multi-level interchange would be built at the notorious Palmwoods, Keil Mountain Road crossroads with the Nambour Connection Road. The 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast will be celebrated on August 1, 2017. In the lead-up to the occasion, My Weekly Preview will each week take a look into our region’s past.

The novel is about a normal family colliding with social media and cyberbulling that has intensified to the point of causing tragic consequences. When serious allegations arise, blogger Beth, the mother of two teenage daughters, is confronted with the question of whether her child is the bully or the bullied. This novel has tackled a subject so relevant in today’s society and demonstrates how important it is to be aware of what our children are being confronted with. While it explores a very serious topic, The Golden Child is a page-turner with a twist at the end I didn’t see coming.

Marjorie Van Roy is a horticulturalist and the director of Manawee Garden Centre. She is passionate about providing advice to customers ranging from the home gardener to the developer. The aim is to gain pleasure and enjoyment from a garden or a complex. Having lived both in the southern states and in Queensland, Van Roy has extensive knowledge of both tropical and cool climate plants and their requirements. Van Roy has a personal interest and love of the French country style, using extensive hedging and pleached trees from magnolias to fruit trees. The pleasures gained from a well-maintained garden cannot be understated and become an asset to any home.

ell, winter is finally here and with it comes time to relax and enjoy our garden space. Most of our plants have slowed down in the growing stakes and most general pruning and feeding should be finished by now. However, there is still plenty to enjoy this season. Some plant types begin to flourish and now is the ideal time to seek them out. Camellia season has started with the sasanqua species starting to come to life. Flowers that have been forming for months have started to bloom. Sasanqua types are some of the most hardy to grow in this region. They are full sun to part-shade tolerant and will cope with a large range of soil types. Regardless of the type of camellia, soil preparation is the key. If you are planning to plant your camellias immediately, never use manures to improve your soil. Camellias need a well-draining soil, ideally free from clay. They thrive on acid, so if you are planting a few camellias, a soil test is always a smart move. Fertilise using a specific acid fertiliser for azalea, camellia and gardenia as this will

contain all the necessary nutrients and is pH balanced. They are an excellent pot specimen, so if your soil isn’t great, or you are looking to keep them a little smaller, then pots can be a great option. There are wonderful varieties in season now, from smaller growing forms such as Bonanza and Yuletide, to more traditional forms such as Setsugekka, Hiryu, Jennifer Susan, Rose Anne or Barbara Louise.

“Some plant types begin to flourish and now is the ideal time to seek them out”

tip There is still plenty of time to be planting your winter vegetables into the patch now. Current seasonal produce includes broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, spinach, silverbeet, brussel sprouts, kale, snowpea, sugarsnap pea and onions.

MOTORING PREVIEW

THE GAME CHANGER Watch out BMW – this SUV offering from Mercedes-Benz is impressive, writes Peter Atkinson, AAP.

I

mitation, Oscar Wilde once said, is the sincerest form of flattery. So the people at BMW – having turned the SUV world on its ear with the eye-catching X6 coupe a few years ago – must have felt pretty good when arch-rival Mercedes-Benz

recently began copying the recipe. After all, the Benz tradition, forged over a century of excellence, has always been about leading, rather than following. So for the Stuttgart folk to admit that arch-rivals BMW had created a successful

new niche in the ever-growing SUV market must have taken a bit of swallowing. But be careful what you wish for. Because once Mercedes cottoned on to the idea, they didn’t just try to match BMW’s range of SUV coupes, they set about

beating the Bavarians at their own game. And with this car, I suspect they’ve done just that. Meet the GLC Coupe – Benz’s answer to the BMW’s mid-sized X4 and yet another niche player in the SUV segment. Based on Benz’s C-Class mid-sized sedan, the GLC has mimicked that car’s enviable combination of great looks, strong value and impressive road manners. Forget practicality, though, this car is all about image. These new coupe-style SUVs, it must be said, have fairly limited sales potential. They’re more expensive, and less practical, than the conventional wagonstyle SUVs upon which they’re based. But they bring a halo effect that attracts buyers into dealerships – even if they’ll generally opt for the more sensible option. The GLC coupe follows the Benz’s new SUV naming convention – all carry the GL prefix, coupled with the model letter of the equivalent Benz sedan. So their baby SUV is now the GLA, the C-Class-sized model is the GLC, the full-sized E-Class equivalent (formerly the ML) is now the GLE, and the big daddy, formerly the GL, is now the GLS. All in perfect alphabetical order – as you might expect from the Germans. We’re yet to test the GLE coupe, but the GLC is a treat. While its curvy rear end gives it continued over>

MOTORING <from previous page a more compact, hunkered-down appearance than its wagon sibling, the coupe is actually longer, by eight centimetres, and its roofline is four centimetres lower. It offers tremendous road presence – muscular, beautifully proportioned and pretty from just about every angle. Inside, you could easily be sitting in a C-Class sedan (or coupe) – everything is identical right down to the instrument cluster, the contours of the dash and the alignment of the steering wheel. The view is substantially better, thanks to its elevated ride height. Unless you plan to look backwards, that is. That sexy, sloping rear hatch might do wonders for its aesthetics, but it’s made the GLC an absolute nightmare to reverse. Fortunately Benz has enlisted plenty of technology to help you. There’s the reversing camera, as you’d expect of any SUV these days, plus a very handy 360-degree view parking assistant. It gives visibility of every corner of this machine by cleverly blending images from several cameras dotted around the vehicle. That’s just part of a lengthy list of electronic driving and safety aides, including Dynamic Body Control, which levels the car’s suspension automatically when cornering. It’s a feature Benz claims is unique in this market segment.

Radar cruise control, collision mitigation, blind-spot assist and attention assist, plus nine airbags, form a comprehensive safety suite. Comfort features include electric rear tailgate with hands-free operation, heated electric seats, electric mirrors and windows and electric adjustment of the rear seats. Because of its sporty nature, the GLC Coupe enjoys a full AMG-style body kit in all models, which helps justify some of the $10,000 premium you’ll pay over similarly equipped GLC wagon models. It’s offered with the choice of four engines, including two turbo-diesels, the turbo-charged two-litre petrol GLC250 tested here, plus a high-performance GLC43 AMG model as the flagship. Prices range from $77,100 to $108,900, plus onroads.

The cockpit reflects the very modern design that has characterised recent Benz releases. Switchgear is sleek and intuitive with stylish, alloy-finished turbinestyle air vents and instrument cluster and a vivid, beautifully presented centre control screen. Dynamically we had no qualms about the GLC, either, despite it lugging around considerably more weight than its sedan equivalent. The two-litre turbocharged four-cylinder also found in the C250 sedan (155 kW) provided pleasing performance in the bigger SUV. Particularly when Sports mode is selected, it darts off the mark and has ample power for overtaking or speeding into gaps in the traffic. I’d be keen to test the equivalent GLC 250 turbo-diesel, with its 500Nm of torque, and the force-fed V6 GLC43 AMG, which rounds out the performance range. Despite its added ground clearance, the ride is pure Mercedes-Benz – well-resolved, firm without being harsh and very compliant when it comes to road imperfections. Noise and vibration is minimal. But what surprised was the nimble, assured way the big coupe

turned into corners, handled quick changes of direction and remained massively stable under braking or tight cornering. In that regard, it could easily be mistaken for a BMW. No doubt Mr Wilde would approve of that. After all, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. And then beat ’em.

MERCEDES-BENZ GLC250 COUPE HOW BIG? Based on the mid-sized C-Class sedan platform, the GLC offers comfort for four, although headroom in the rear is slightly compromised by the sloping rear hatch. There is plenty of cargo space, though.

HOW FAST? We drove it with the very adequate turbocharged four-cylinder, which offers smart acceleration. But those wanting more power could spend an additional $30 grand on the AMG version.

HOW THIRSTY? The turbo petrol sips 7.4L/100km, which is reasonable. The two turbo-diesels cut that figure to a frugal 5.8L/100km.

HOW MUCH? It’s about $10 grand more expensive than a conventional GLC, despite having less space and one fewer seat. Prices start at $77,100 for the smaller diesel, while AMG buyers won’t get much change out of $120K.

INDUSTRY WRAP With the Sunshine Coast population soaring, we look at what’s happening with some of the major Sunshine Coast residential developments. AURA SECURES SUSTAINABILITY AWARD

LAND RELEASED TO MEET DEMAND

NEW COOLUM LUXURY HOMES

Stockland’s masterplanned city of Aura on the Sunshine Coast has taken out the Project Innovation award at the 2017 Property Council of Australia/Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards for its unique approach to community consultation and world-leading sustainability initiatives. Aura’s Engagement Excellence Program was conceived by Stockland during the initial planning stages of Aura. Stockland Sunshine Coast regional manager Ben Simpson says it will take more than 30 years to develop the Priority Development Area and the community will be there in perpetuity, so the actions undertaken and implemented today will “echo for generations”. “By working together with our community stakeholders, we have achieved a broad range of outcomes that are setting new standards within the Australian development industry and there is more to come,” he says. “The stewardship group has resulted in improvements to the Aura masterplan, research partnerships with universities, community-led rehabilitation initiatives – the list goes on.” Stockland will create more than 20,000 new homes at the $5-billion city as well as a city centre and retail hub.

Palmview’s largest masterplanned community, Harmony, has fast-tracked the release of its latest land lots to meet demand for affordable land in the sought-after area. With median land prices in the Sunshine Coast rising by almost five per cent from 2015 to 2016, the appetite for affordable land options in the region continues to grow. AVID Property Group Queensland general manager Bruce Harper says an additional 91 land lots have been released at Harmony. “Residential property demand is surging in the region and as prices continue to rise, buyers are increasingly looking for affordable land options,” Harper says. With the population of the Sunshine Coast projected to grow to almost 453,000 by 2036 (from around 294,000 in 2016), Harmony is set to deliver more than 4800 homes for 12,000 future residents. Harmony has achieved a significant number of milestones since its official launch last year, including becoming the first ‘6 Leaf’ EnviroDevelopment masterplanned community to be certified in South-East Queensland by the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA).

The much anticipated first home in the Affinity Collection at The Coolum Residences Beachside Estate is now open for inspection. Built by Sekisui House, one of the world’s largest residential development companies, the Affinity home is a showcase of modern contemporary beachside design that incorporates the latest building technology along with an eight-star energy rating. Sekisui House senior development manager Evan Aldridge says the single-storey, four-bedroom home has been architecturally designed in collaboration between Sekisui House lead designer Mitsuharu Yachi and local company Mode Design. Place Projects director Syd Walker says homes in the $1 million plus range on the Sunshine Coast were attracting strong interest. “On a national level, the Coast is still relatively affordable, especially to buyers from Sydney and Melbourne who are seeing the area as excellent value,” he says.

HIGH PRESSURE CLEANERS FROM

CHAINSAWS FROM

199

Are you having trouble waking up for an early surf? I have found the answer. Tickle socks. Yep. You can be woken up by a tickle on your feet. It’s no laughing matter. OK, I’ve been watching Mr Slater give a master class in Fiji – not too shabby for a 45-year-old. Also, did anyone see the footage of Bethany Hamilton? My God she was killing it. Remember she only has one arm. When you watch these two you have to ask yourself, ‘what is your excuse?’ OK, this weekend should be little cold with a few waves around. Be careful when naturally warming your wetsuits as these new wetsuits seem to have very good seals. Righto – tickle socks and wetsuits. Enjoy.

FISHING REPORT with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World

After 24 years of owning Maroochydore Fishing World, we have sold our building and are closing down Fishing World to retire at the end of June. We would like to thank all of our customers and readers of this article for the years of fishing stories and friendships shared over this time. ESTUARY: Bream moving in over the Maroochy bar on the bigger night tides this week with prawns and fowl gut best. Flathead and whiting on the drift from Goat Island to Twin Waters. Luderick and trevally the surprise package under the Motorway bridge. SURF: Chopper tailor at Alexandra Headland and down to Pincushion with chrome slugs the best after sunrise, with whitebait or baby blue pillies for better quality at dusk. Bream and tarwhine along Mudjimba Beach and up to the mouth of the Maroochy. OFFSHORE: When conditions allow, mixed reef fish from the Inner Gneerings to the Blinker with squid and cut baits best. Try early morning or late afternoon. Snapper, pearlies and kingies at the Barwon Banks just as the full moon rises. FRESHWATER: Somerset Dam is firing for bass and golden perch with shrimps the go. The sticks north of Kirkleigh and up to the power line the places to work. Saratoga climbing all over flies, lures and floated baits up at Borumba Dam. Just look for the rises. A few winter bass up in the Noosa River with plastics and spinner baits worth a cast at almost any log or drop off.

TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)

GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)

Many rambunctious rams will feel rather edgy this week, as Mercury and Jupiter jump-start your restless gene. So it’s a wonderful week to ditch your usual routine and go travelling for fun or work (especially interstate).

This week Mercury and Jupiter boost your business brain, as you feel more positive about your financial and professional future. But resist the urge to be precious about possessions or possessive of loved ones.

It’s the perfect week to shake off the mental cobwebs as Mercury and Jupiter stimulate your curiosity. Time to read, write and investigate. You’ll enjoy finding ways to connect with those around you whether at home, at work or your local community.

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

Caring crabs are natural nesters. And home is definitely where the heart is this week, as Jupiter lights up your domestic zone. So it’s time to cook a special meal and relax. Or finish some of those DIY projects you started many moons ago!

Tuesday is a terrific day to sign a contract, start a course of study or make a splash on social media. Friendships are placed under the forensic microscope on Thursday though, when Saturn highlights problems in existing relationships.

Is your professional life progressing well? Are you overdue to apply for a promotion? Is it time to change vocation? Avoid resting on your laurels. With Mercury and Jupiter energising your career zone, you need to initiate positive changes.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

This week’s positive planetary aspects bring out your studious and sociable side. So it’s the perfect time to pick up new information from a variety of people and places. Party like a pro at a public event or entertain more privately at home.

Love and peace planet Venus is in your relationship zone, so you’re in the mood for companionship and cooperation. Independent projects are out; and cosy collaboration is in. And for some lucky singles, romance is in the air!

With Mercury and Jupiter both stimulating your sign, your playfulness and sense of humour are highlighted. So you’re keen to amuse others, as you play the role of the raconteur. But there can be a very fine line between being funny and being offensive.

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)

PISCES (Feb 20-Mar 20)

Your high standards can be hard for others to live up to, especially this week. Perhaps 90 per cent effort (and a happy home) is better than 100 per cent effort and ragged faces all round? Jupiter encourages you to be a leader who is generous and wise.

It’s time to plan your next holiday as Mercury and Jupiter activate your adventure zone. There’s nothing like travel to broaden your mental horizons. But are there reasons why you can’t go away? (No money, too busy….) Stop making excuses!

This week, aim to get the balance right between your professional persona and your more private side. Some quiet time for rest and relaxation is just as important as networking widely and burning the midnight oil.

THE LAST WORD

THE FRIGHTFUL FIVE: FRIENDS OR FOES? Richard O’Leary says private investment in science rivals government investment – which is a scary prospect.

I

thought you guys would like this one. There was a story in the New York Times a couple of weeks ago about tech companies replacing governments, as the builders of the future. The story by Farhad Manjoo says Google, Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Microsoft will spend about $81 billion on scientific research this year. To put that in perspective, in 2015 the US Government spent $90 billion in non-defence related scientific research. So the Frightful Five, as Manjoo has called them, go nearly dollar for dollar with the US Government. Which at first glance looks fine. It seems only fair considering how much money they make from us. In fact, you could say it’s downright altruistic and deserves to be praised. But as one of my mentors once told

me, be careful what you wish for, because you might just get it. Or was that a Disney movie? Anyway, my point is this may not be the perfect outcome for our combined futures. Last year Stephen Hawking warned the world that artificial intelligence (AI) could be the greatest disaster in human history if it is not properly managed. The famous physicist said AI could create powerful autonomous weapons and new ways to control the masses. Now if that is the case, and who am I to argue with a bloke who worked out that it was necessary to unify General Relativity with Quantum Theory, surely it matters who owns that information. For example, Hawking also says AI could have great benefits and potentially erase poverty and disease. Now who would you rather be in charge of those potential breakthroughs – Google which is answerable to no one, or a parliament,

which faces an election every few years? Hint: Just think for a few seconds about what some pharmaceutical companies have done with life-saving drugs – would tech companies be any better at putting people before profit? But maybe I’m being pessimistic, several tech companies are sharing their breakthroughs, and many of us are better for it. This could soon see autonomous cars on a road near you, and tens of thousands of lives are expected to be saved around the world. So in that spirit of optimism and hope, I’ll leave the last word to the great man himself, Stephen Hawking: “We spend a great deal of time studying history, which, let’s face it, is mostly the history of stupidity. So it’s a welcome change that people are studying instead the future of intelligence.” olearylastword@gmail.com
