HAIRDRESSING: SHARAN’S ON THE CUTTING EDGE TAFE QUEENSLAND’S AWARD-WINNING TEACHER SHARES HER STORY
“After school I completed my hairdressing apprenticeship at Stefan Hair, travelled through Europe and started my stylish new career in London. After a short departure from the industry to travel the world working for Qantas International, I landed safely on the Sunshine Coast and am now doing something I love – helping others to reach their potential and follow their dreams.”
19/06/2017 9:20:14 AM
haran Berry-Doyle is a Leading Vocational Hairdressing Teacher at TAFE Queensland East Coast and works with Certiﬁcate II and Certiﬁcate III apprentice hairdressers, school-based apprentices and trainees, and full-time students in the new purpose-built training salon at our Mooloolaba campus. Sharan was awarded the 2015 Queensland Teacher/Trainer of the Year and placed second at the Australian Training Awards; was a ﬁnalist in the 2016 Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards; received Runner-Up and Highly Commended in the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) Alumni of the Year Awards; and has been nominated in the 2017 Telstra Business Woman (Professional) of the Year Awards. “I have been at TAFE for 18 years now and each year is just as exciting as the last. The evolution of hairdressing and how we teach it has been quite signiﬁcant,” Sharan said. “Students have a unique opportunity to not only gain employment in a very stable industry, but also branch out and become their own boss if they want to.” “I get great joy from mentoring people and helping them grow into capable and conﬁdent professionals,” she said. An Australian Apprenticeships and TAFE Queensland Ambassador, Sharan hopes her journey into tertiary education and teaching can inspire others. “My story started many years ago and began with an apprenticeship at Stefan Hair the day I ﬁnished Year 12. I was at Stefan’s for years and worked my way up through the ranks to become the number one apprentice in the company, manage one of the largest Stefan salons in Australia, and was the company’s senior stylist,” Sharan said. “But like most things, after a while you need a break. I spent 6-months away from the salon to travel and backpack around Europe where I landed in London and, well, stayed.” “I found my feet pretty easily as hairdressing is a universal industry and, with my skills, I easily found work wherever I wanted to.” “I became hooked on travel and accepted an opportunity to work for Qantas international as a ﬂight attendant. I was lucky enough to travel all over the world which was awesome and I loved every minute of it, except the constant state of jetlag,” she said.
Eventually, Sharan and her family decided to move back to Queensland where she not only bought a small coastal salon, but also began working part-time as a special needs teacher aide at a school in Caloundra. “My experience as a teacher aide was amazing and led me to undertake my Training and Assessment in education (TAE) in the late 90’s. I then started my career at TAFE as a casual tutor one day a week,” Sharan said. “Like my time at Stefan Hair, I quickly rose through the ranks to secure a permanent teaching position and write all of the resources for the hairdressing certiﬁcates. Needless to say, here I am today,” she said. Committed to learning ways in which to help make students reach their full potential, Sharan wanted to understand more about teaching and began a Bachelor of Training at University.
“STUDENTS HAVE A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO NOT ONLY GAIN EMPLOYMENT IN A VERY STABLE INDUSTRY, BUT ALSO BRANCH OUT AND BECOME THEIR OWN BOSS IF THEY WANT TO.” “I can proudly say that I’ve now completed my Graduate Diploma in Further Education at USQ and two Masters Degrees - Master of Training (majoring in Human Resources) and a Master of Education (majoring in Leadership and Management),” Sharan said. “I take tremendous pride in inspiring new hairdressers and the best thing about my job is the chance to give back to a trade that has given me so much throughout my life.” “Nothing is more satisfying than seeing a student succeed.” “When graduates go on to start their own businesses and send their apprentices to me for training I feel honoured – it’s a privilege and validates why I became a teacher,” she said.

THE FIRST WORD
ISSUE 454 June 23, 2017
Roll up, roll up to The Ginger Factory these school holidays and have fun at the Comedy Circus Stunt Show, which is on until July 7. You have the chance to see the show up close and personal as we are giving away a Family Superpass, valued at $165. The winner will also get to ride the ginger train and take a trip on the Overboard boat, both which are open year round.
FROM THE EDITOR
f the word ‘budget’ makes you grimace, chances are you are not alone. In December, the CHOICE Consumer Pulse report showed that only one in four Australian households said they were living comfortably. Australians aged between 30 and 49 were also more likely to live off credit cards, while 20 per cent of people surveyed in the same age bracket said they deliberately missed paying a bill by the due date. Consumerism has become the norm for a large percentage of Australians who struggle to stick to a household budget. With the new financial year looming, we thought it was the ideal time to delve into the world of saving and spending. Journalist Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane has compiled advice ranging from teen budgeting right through to superannuation tips. You can read the feature story on page 12. A focus on finance isn’t all we are offering families this week. Those with young children will love this edition. What’s not to love about the dazzling Emma Watkins, who features on the magazine’s cover? In addition to an interview with the yellow Wiggle, we also have our quarterly school holiday fun guide, which features a range of activities to keep families busy. Plus, we’ve joined with our friends at The Ginger Factory and Sea Life Sunshine Coast to give away free family passes! Be sure to enter. And, happy reading.

IMAGE MAKER Where on the Sunshine Coast do you live? Usually I’m in Brisbane for uni, but I have been living on the Coast for the past few months for an internship as part of my final year of uni. My family home is by a lake in Mountain Creek – I love being back.
Favourite book? The climate change thriller, Tilt, written by local author Max Oberon.
First job? Seeing my brother work at a kebab shop when he was 13 made me desperate for a job. The moment I was old enough, I joined my brother at Ali Baba in Kawana Shoppingworld. The best first job and first boss, ever.
Favourite song? Paradise by Coldplay.
What are you currently working on? I’m currently working on two big pieces; graduating the Honours program at uni and my modelling career. At the end of the year I’m heading overseas to live and work in Europe as a model. Speaking to my friends over there, it’s becoming clear that the full-time #modellife is definitely NOT a breeze. As such, I’ve been working on my physique with a trainer and nutritionist, as well as working closely with my agents in Brisbane and Sydney. My final year of uni has seen me working busily to get ethics approval for my Honours project. I’m writing a thesis about the impact of obesity on the radiation that scatters onto the medical staff when they’re working to stent open a blocked coronary artery under X-ray guidance. Obesity and coronary artery disease come hand in hand, as do large patients and increased radiation dose. I’m hoping to statistically relate and quantify these things.
What are you reading now? Relentless by Tim Grover. It analyses the mindsets of the ultimate competitors and what separates good from great from unstoppable.
Best advice you’ve been given? Don’t take life so seriously, you’re not gonna make it out alive anyway. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Noosa. I love getting there early in the morning and running through the national park. Where do you take visitors when they come to the Coast? Sunrise climb of Mt Coolum followed by a swim and coffee at Marcoola.
“It’s becoming clear the fulltime #modellife is definitely not a breeze”
Charles Anthony Hall BIO
Charles Anthony Hall is a Sunshine Coast model whose star is on the rise. He is the Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival’s 2017 ambassador and the first male model to be appointed to the role.

When he finishes university at the end of the year, he’ll move to Europe to embark on his career as a full-time international model.
8 My Weekly Preview | June 23, 2017
Your family includes. . . Two horses, five cows, two chickens, two dogs, a cat, and a few humans. The humans are all pretty cool, too. I have no favourites. First car? When my brother decided he needed a new ute, I got his old Mitsubishi Triton complete with subwoofer, snorkel, big tyres, and some tacky Northern Territory stickers – the best first car a teenager on the Coast could have.
If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? There needs to be a train/tram/light rail that runs from Landsborough or Nambour across to Maroochydore or Mooloolaba.
Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? The day I didn’t get accepted into Medicine at James Cook University in Townsville. If I had gone to study there, my life would be very different. I am so happy with where my path has led. What achievement are you most proud of? Being chosen as the first-ever male model ambassador for the Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival. I am so proud that my career as an international model will have commenced with this, on the SCFF’s 10th anniversary. You are happiest when? When I am eating chocolate, getting a sports massage, and listening to classical music, all at once. Tea or coffee? Coffee. Long black. When too much coffee has been consumed, I turn to green tea. NRL or AFL? NRL – the Maroons!

Local Bed Retailer Will Give Away Over One Million Dollars In Discounts On His Entire Inventory Between 23rd June to 30th June Because He Has A Tax Problem And Wants You To Be The Beneficiary Instead Of The Australian Tax Office My business has had a great year so far in 2017. In fact, we’ve done so well I’m probably going to pay double the tax I did last year. And the way it works in the retail trade is the more stock you have on hand, the more tax you pay. Herein lies my problem You see, without considering the tax consequences I just bought in a whole lot of stock and I must get rid of it to avoid being hit with a huge bill form the ATO. So my accountant’s told me to hold a massive clearance sale to get rid of my stock before the end of financial year. At up to 67% off all stock, I know I’m practically throwing away quality merchandise. I don’t care. I have to get rid of them.

GET SMART WITH YOUR MONEY With government budgets being handed down and the end of financial year looming, My Weekly Preview has caught up with some of the most respected names in the finance industry for advice on everything from kids and pocket money to saving enough for a comfortable retirement. Compiled by Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
KIDS AND TEENS Libby and David Koch have written many books on family finance, kids’ money issues and how parents can teach their children about money. Here, Libby shares her tips on pocket money for children and increasing financial responsibility for teenagers.
e have tried many ideas with our own kids and sought out expert opinions from councillors, bankers and teachers over the years as we wrote about this subject. The biggest point we have always made on the subject of paying pocket money is that it must be tied to a service provided. When children are old enough to want to earn money, then they are old enough for the responsibility of doing a household job for it, for us this was around six years old.
12 My Weekly Preview | June 23, 2017
We always had a ‘no work no pay’ policy just like in the real world, which after all is the point of teaching your kids anything isn’t it? We disliked children feeling entitled to the privileges of being part of a family and this drove the idea of having our kids do jobs that really helped the household, not themselves. Therefore, they weren’t paid for making their beds, we would say they were lucky to have one and so should be responsible for making it. Rather, I paid them for helping me with my workload, such as folding the washing for the younger kids (a big job actually in the Koch household with six family members – that was 42 pairs of socks in winter alone). The older children would have to collect the rubbish and recycling, take out the bins and help with ironing and gardening. We have often been asked what amount we paid and we used to base this on the minimum wage that McDonalds paid kids, as this was the next step for our children; that they had to get a job with the local Maccas when they turned 14 and nine months. I think the figure we started with for the little ones was about $5 for a half hour of work with the older kids getting $10–12 a week for about 45–60 minutes work. They would put half the money in their money boxes to spend as they wished, either buying a treat now and again or to provide money for charity events at school. The other half went into their bank accounts that were run through a local bank via school. Then when our kids became teenagers, we paid them increasingly for more work performed and around mid-teens we paid about $50–$70 a month for them to bank and budget out for their monthly needs and wants, such as for transport to visit friends or go to the movies, having to buy the odd meal while out. Not forgetting this was 15 to 20 years ago, so a few CPI increases would need to be taken into account now. Teenagers need more responsibility as they get closer to leaving school and having to make their own, hopefully wise, choices. We always felt it was our right to continue to have a say while they were at school and we were paying pocket money, but when a school leaver and working a part-time job, we felt you should give your young adult the respect of backing off a bit. Our kids always had a part-time job while at uni and even though we bought a little car for them to have a lend of, they paid for their own petrol. We contributed to uni expenses and buying new clothes, but they would put in the extra required for particular brands. They were responsible for personal extras and especially entertaining expenses. Paying board only kicked in when not studying and maintaining a full-time job. While these young adults were too old for pocket money, they were expected to complete certain jobs to help the family in exchange for free room and board when studying.

TO INVEST OR NOT TO INVEST? Natasha Janssens is the founder and director of Sova Financial as well as the brains behind Women With Cents. Here, she share her tips on when and how to get started with investments.
he best time to invest is today. Let me explain why. Theoretically the best time to invest is at the bottom of the cycle and ideally you sell at the top. However, even the top experts can never predict the top of a market with 100 per cent certainty, only hindsight can truly tell you where the market was at any given point in time. Your biggest friend when it comes to investing is time, and the power of compounding. This means that the earlier you start to grow your money, the more it will grow. Take for example a 30-year investment strategy. In scenario one, you invest $5000 a year for 15 years, making a five per cent return. At the 15-year mark, you stop investing and just allow the money to continue to grow at five per cent each year. By year 30, your balance would be $235,516. Take scenario two, where you wait for 15 years and then start investing $10,000 a year for 15 years, again making a five per cent return. By year 30, despite investing double the money over 15 years, your balance would be $226,575. Therefore, the sooner you start investing, the better. It’s important to remember there are many ways of investing, in fact the best investment strategy will involve investing in different asset classes at different points in time, in order to mitigate your risk. Managed funds offer an easy way of spreading your investment across different asset classes, including offering access to real property.

HOME BUYERS AND MORTGAGES Canna Campbell owns boutique financial planning company SASS Financial and runs her own YouTube channel, SugarMamma.TV, which inspires women around the world with her savvy financial tips and tricks. Here, Canna shares her tips for home buyers and home owners.
here is one golden word when it comes to money and that is budget. If you are looking at entering the property market, first of all, do a budget to know if you can afford the house in the first place. You need to understand what your current living expenses are and see if you can squeeze mortgage repayments in there as well. And it’s not enough to have this in your head, you need to write it down. While you are going through this process, you can look at how much you are capable of putting aside in a regular savings plan to build up a deposit. The aim is to get the biggest deposit possible so that you take out the smallest mortgage possible, which places less stress and pressure on your shoulders and makes it quicker and easier to pay it off. One other point is to have really specific goals, like ‘I want to save up $80,000 by January 2019’, because it gives you a defined deadline and will make you much more accountable. It will also trigger the right amount of action to get the

achievement you are looking for, otherwise you fall into the trap of delaying by six months, then another. There is a fair amount of sacrifice involved with saving. Nothing great is achieved easily, otherwise we couldn’t have that sense of pride that comes with success. On my YouTube channel, there are videos on how to pay off your home loans fast and some easy ways to do this are to
“Nothing great is achieved easily, otherwise we wouldn’t get that sense of pride...” shop around for better interest rates and look at taking out your mortgage with a shorter term. Thirty-year loan repayments will look less than 25-year loan repayments, but you will save thousands of dollars in interest with five less years to pay it off.
omen around Queensland are retiring with between 26 and 49 per cent less superannuation than men and the gap is widening in most areas across the state, with women on average only now just reaching levels men held five years ago. On the Sunshine Coast, the retirement gender gap in 2017 is 41 per cent, with men retiring locally with an average balance of $233,000 while women are retiring with an average of $139,000. This gap has grown slightly by 0.6 per cent in the past five years. QSuper CEO Michael Pennisi says lower average wages and taking time out of the workforce to either raise children or care for elderly parents are key contributors to the findings. Also a factor is greater tax concessions available on superannuation contributions by those on higher incomes, often driving increased contributions to a husband’s account who is generally the higher income earner.
Generally, when people have made good headwind with their mortgage and are well ahead on the loan period on their mortgage, they can explore investing options. One of the worst things someone can do is spend 30 years of their working life only paying off their home and wake up at 60 and have no other assets. You can’t live off your home, it doesn’t create passive income and is not liquid. Everyone has different values and things that are important to them, like fine art or sports cars, and you need to include an overall balance in your life. Investing in things like family holidays are important as you are investing in memories, creating bonds and connections, and getting to know your family more intimately. But you must always live within your means. Making the decision to step up and take responsibility is so important.
To tap into more of Canna Campbell’s money saving tips, visit sugarmamma.tv.
The analysis shows the gap begins to widen after the age of 30 and Pennisi believes there are a number of strategies women can employ early on to ensure this doesn’t happen. These include: • Getting to know your fund and what fees and insurance is included. • Understand your investment options. • Consolidate your super to avoid duplicate fees. • Find your lost super. According to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) there is $11.7 billion of lost superannuation sitting in holding accounts waiting to be claimed. • Contribute extra if you can.

WINS AND LOSSES FOR COAST IN THE STATE BUDGET The State Government has allocated $120 million for the widening of the Bruce Highway from the Caloundra Road to Sunshine Motorway in the budget, which was handed down last week. This is the final piece in the puzzle to ensuring the six-laning from Brisbane to the Sunshine Motorway, after the Federal Government announced $536.4 million in upgrades to the Pine Rivers to Caloundra Road section of the national highway in May. State treasurer Curtis Pitt (pictured) says this year’s budget will support 3700 jobs across Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay in 2017–18 and allocates $64.7 million for the ongoing construction and development of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and a further $7.9 million for the Caloundra Hospital refurbishment. More than $26 million was given to schools across the Coast for new classrooms and upgrades, including $11.9 million for a new school in Caloundra South. While this is the good news for the region, the Coast missed out on funding for vital road infrastructure projects, the duplication of the North Coast Rail and the Mooloolah River interchange, which would provide more direct access to the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital.
LIGHTNING TAKES OUT THE GRAND FINAL The Sunshine Coast Lightning netballers have become legends after a grand final victory at their inaugural Super Netball grand final. They were in fine form as they took the win 65–48 over the Sydney Giants in front of a crowd of almost 9000 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in a nationally televised match. The team received a hero’s welcome as hundreds flocked to the Kings Beach Amphitheatre yesterday to officially welcome them back after their victory. Mayor Mark Jamieson awarded the team a Key to the City.
Radiation oncology services have begun at the $1.8-billion Sunshine Coast University Hospital. SCUH’s Adem Crosby Centre provides comprehensive oncology, clinical haematology and for the first time on the Coast, radiation oncology services will be delivered publicly from the centre. Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service Chief Executive Kevin Hegarty says patients were previously being treated by a private provider and he expects between 45 and 50 patients will receive the more efficient linear accelerator radiation therapy treatments at SCUH each week.
CHARITY THE BIG WINNER AT POPULAR RACE DAY Almost 6300 patrons attended the Hot 91.1 Ladies Oaks Day and enjoyed a full day of racing and a live performance by headline act Thundamentals. Sunshine Coast Turf Clubs CEO Mick Sullivan says the partnership with the Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation saw a percentage of the gate takings donated to Mick Sullivan and the Hot 91.1 team hand the charity. A cheque for over a cheque for $11,105 $11,105 was donated to the Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Program and volunteers raised an additional $3315.90 in raffles, donations and the sale of merchandise on the day.

COAST UNITES TO SLEEP ROUGH FOR HOMELESS Our politicians and business leaders will forego their warm beds to raise money for the Coast’s 1500 homeless people. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
his year, more than 1500 Sunshine Coast men, women and children will find themselves homeless and struggling to find a warm place to sleep at night. In the eight months to March 1, the St Vincent de Paul Northern Diocese provided support to 400 homeless individuals, including 250 children, and the need for more transitional housing is paramount. Sunshine Coast Airport general manager Peter Pallot found out first-hand how difficult it is to sleep rough when he joined the Coast’s St Vincent de Paul Corporate and Community Sleepout in 2015. Pallot, who is preparing to join 32 Sunshine Coast Business Council (SCBC) members and politicians for his third annual event on June 29, says his first experience sleeping on the beach on a winter’s night was an eye-opener. “It was a night of learning. The experience brought into sharp focus the challenges that some people experience each and every night, simple things like finding a place out of the wind, a place that is safe, and coming to grips with not being able to access a shower or even a hot meal,” he says. “An enduring memory of my first Sleepout
Fiona Simpson, Ian Laherty, Sandy Zubrinich and Andrew Powell was to hear first-hand the stories of some of those helped by the program and understanding how quickly circumstances can affect our lives. I look at my own girls and think about other kids of the same age who, through circumstances often beyond their control, end up without the support network that many take for granted. “The next morning there was a realisation that people have to do this each and every day
and how tough that must be. I was grateful that the small contribution that we made via the CEO Sleepout would help make it a little easier for others.” SCBC president Sandy Zubrinich says the Sleepout participants, which have more than doubled since last year, aim to raise $50,000 for homeless services. “In the first year, there’s some comfort in not knowing what’s ahead, really,” she admits.
“After the lovely opening ceremony that reinforces why you are doing what you are doing, you are sent to get a piece of cardboard and a sleeping bag and find somewhere on the beach to bunk down. It is very difficult at that point. The cold seeps through your body. Last year, we had around about six or seven degrees through the night.” “It’s easy to take for granted just how lucky many of us are to have a roof over our heads and food on the table each day, and this event really does open your eyes to the tough conditions our region’s homeless face night after night.” St Vincent de Paul Society Northern Diocesian president Ian Laherty says funds raised from the nation-wide Sleepout would be used to provide emergency accommodation and food, with a long-term goal of establishing a supply of transitional housing on the Sunshine Coast.
To donate to the cause, visit communitysleepout.org.au. Tickets can also be purchased online for a chance to win a CX3 Mazda via the 2017 Vinnies Corporate and Community Sleepout Art Union draw, with all proceeds being put towards homeless services.

THE GIRL WITH THE BOW IN HER HAIR DANCES INTO TOWN Emma Watkins grew up watching The Wiggles, never dreaming she would one day become arguably the most popular Wiggle of them all. She speaks with My Weekly Preview about her rise to stardom and her marriage to purple Wiggle, Lachie Gillespie. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
he girl with the bow in her hair is set to perform on the Coast in another sell-out show with children’s entertainment powerhouse The Wiggles on July 1. But Emma Watkins is much more than a sparkly blue-eyed performer with a wide smile. She is a seasoned dancer, budding musician and a role model to millions of adoring young fans around the world. At 27 years old, Watkins is just one year older than The Wiggles and is still in awe that she has managed to become such an integral figure in the show. “I grew up watching The Wiggles and one of my earliest memories is the Irish dancing on the show and I asked mum if I could learn it when I was four years old,” Watkins tells My Weekly Preview. Watkins went on to attend The McDonald College of Performing Arts and says while she fell in love with every style of dance she learned, she always had a strong affinity with Irish and ballet. A true test of determination came for Watkins when she was in Year 8, when an injury prevented her from dancing en pointe for two years. “I was such a teacher’s pet and I really wanted to impress the teacher, so on the first day back in term two, we were doing a jumping turn from the corner and our teacher mentioned that if we were feeling confident, you could just try a double,” Watkins says. “So I’d done a whole line down the room of singles and decided to try a double and I landed on the outside of my ankle and heard it snap. I had torn the ligament in my ankle and ended up on crutches. I still have a wonky ankle.” Watkins missed her ballet exam and struggled emotionally with attending the school with such a heavy dance component while she was unable to participate fully, but she credits that moment for forcing her to
“branch out” and give her the skills she needed to land work further down the track. Watkins went on to dance on tour for Jessica Mauboy, John Paul Young, Marcia Hines and Adam Lambert and she also featured in Bollywood movie premieres, primarily for a woman she calls the Indian Madonna. Watkins was just 16 years old when she first auditioned for The Wiggles as a dancer and while she made it through to the final round, she wasn’t given the job. Two years later, another audition came up, this time for Fairy Larissa in the Dorothy Show. “The ad just said ballet, but when I got in there, they asked for any extra skills and usually if you are an acrobat, it’s quite impressive, but I didn’t have those skills, so I did Irish dancing and they were really

excited. The next day, I got the job,” she says. Watkins began touring with The Wiggles and played characters including Dorothy the Dinosaur, Wags the Dog, a Wiggly Dancer, musician and back-up singer. “I met Lachie (Gillespie) on the Dorothy Show and soon after, I met Simon (Pryce) on The Wiggles show and the three of us became great friends,” she says. “They taught me to sing harmonies, which were such a bizarre concept for me as I had always been so focused on dancing. It is challenging, I don’t hear music like Lachie hears it, he is a virtuoso. “I dabbled in the violin, piano and the flute, but I didn’t focus on music until becoming a Wiggle. I now play the drums in the show and play the keyboard for certain numbers and the tambourine. Most of the

musical stuff I’ve learned from being part of the group, and it’s a credit to Anthony (Field) that he lets you have a go at anything.” Watkins says when she first heard the original Wiggles were retiring, she feared it would be the end of the renowned group and received the shock of her life when they were told a new line-up was being formed. She admits she assumed the new crew would be all-male just like the originals and didn’t take Field seriously when he asked her to become the new yellow Wiggle. Watkins says it is hard to believe that happened five years ago. Watkins’ romance with Gillespie has been a source of joy for their young fans and the couple married on April 8 last year. The constant questions over when a baby Wiggle will arrive is one Watkins is used to facing, and she offered an answer before the question could even be asked. “We would like to have kids in the future. I have a new little niece and nephew that we are enjoying at the moment,” she says. “We’re pretty busy, we tour for about nine months of the year and we are hardly home. When we are up on the Sunshine Coast, we try and see Lachie’s family in Brisbane.” Watkins says it can be difficult to spend quality time with Gillespie when they are on the road, but they wouldn’t have it any other way. “We’re basically part of a big circus family at the moment and it is quite special to perform for children in what is often their first concert,” she says. “You get so much feedback from the audience straight away and I get so excited to see the kids coming in dressed up.” There is no doubt Watkins is an inspiration to her fans and says she does her best to inspire strength and determination in young boys and girls and to encourage them to follow their dreams. The Wiggles will perform at The Events Centre in Caloundra.

ISLAM: LOOKING PAST THE LABELS
IS YOUR HANDBAG A LOST CAUSE?
Sunshine Coast lawyer Kyle Kimball says focusing on our shared humanity is a better way of dealing with our fears than targeting Muslims.
A new study reveals women spend an inordinate amount of time rummaging through their handbags and Sami Muirhead is no exception.
oly handbags, girls! A new study of 1500 Australian women has shown nearly one-third of us spend 10 minutes a day rummaging through our bags looking for something. I suspect I spend a lot more than this amount of time as I stand there swearing, looking for my work swipe card thingy that is usually wedged at the bottom of my bag under a mountain of crumpled receipts and loose change. Spending 10 minutes every day pulling apart the endless pit that is your handbag amounts to 162 days of your life. Do I spend 10 minutes a day shaving my legs? Nope. It has possibly been several months since I have done that. Do I dedicate 10 minutes a day to pelvic floor exercises? Heck, no! Thirty five per cent of women in the survey admitting to spending at least five minutes a day trying to locate stuff buried in their bag. So for you neat freaks, the question you are asking about now is probably what exactly do we have in our bags that makes them dungeons of doom for finding anything quickly? Well, let’s play a game of confession. On any given day I have a notebook, five pens, three lipsticks, a blush, foundation, tissues, baby wipes, nappies, loose change, a muesli bar, two toy cars, a diary, matches, dockets, receipts, a purse filled with about 50 cards, my work swipe card, car keys, house keys, and a phone. Some days I add an iPad, perfume, and a spare
shirt and phone charger. Some weeks I find an apple or orange in there that is clearly a few months old. And it is all just kind of thrown in together like some melting pot from hell. Being guilty of decluttering my bag, I am not. The study found just three per cent of women never have to search for anything because their handbags are organised. I hate you lot. And I rarely use the word hate. Perhaps a neat handbag reflects an organised mind and life. And clearly my hopeless handbag represents my whirlwind lifestyle of trying (unsuccessfully most days) to keep lots of balls in the air. As for what we are spending on our bags, well the average bag costs $100 but the survey also shows lots of us lie to our partners about how much we actually spend on handbags. I know I do. So the experts say the only way to cut back on the amount of stuff we carry around is to invest in a smaller bag or one with lots of pockets and places specifically designed to keep you organised. But my faithful beige tote is my security blanket and my wingman. I know if I have my bag, chances are I will have whatever I need to deal with whatever life throws at me that day. It is making me feel anxious just thinking about it. So perhaps instead of decluttering, I will just add some Rescue Remedy to my bag, which doubles as a chemist/makeup stall/ bank/mobile communications portal/cafe/ babysitter. Now that sounds a splendid idea.

sn’t it just too easy to classify people as Muslim or Christian? To use these words as an explanation for behaviour we don’t understand? That label then allows us to conveniently express and target our fear of those who are not part of our own. They’re all Muslims, so we can single them all out. What we really mean by that is ‘they’re not us’. Do you ever stop to think what we mean by ‘us’ or ‘Muslim’? That someone calls himself, or is called, a Muslim doesn’t make him one, any more than me calling myself an astronaut means I’m going to walk on the moon anytime soon. And who gets to decide what is, or is not, a Muslim, or Christian anyway? The press? They can’t even get your kid’s name right for the weekly sports report. Recent calls by our political masters to keep Muslims, and other non-WASPs, out of this country are the first steps down a slippery slope. There was a country in Europe about 60 years ago that chose to define itself by being anything but followers of a particular religion. In the interests of keeping their nation proudly white and blonde. And they did so by making sure that a particular religion was singled out for all the grief it supposedly caused the rest of them. How did that work out? Generalisations about what a religion is or is not, and thus tagging all
its followers with that same label serves only the creation of fear. Fear is no excuse for violence or ignorance, it is the cause. The complexity of human nature cannot be dealt with by solutions like Manus Island, or bombs. The truth is, there is no Muslim, no Christian. Not one group of people can all accurately be conveniently labelled such that we can justify dropping bombs on them (or letting them drown at sea).
“The label then allows us to conveniently express and target our fear” Only by treating other folk with compassion and as individuals like you or I, as real people, can we truly realise our common humanity, and go anywhere close to solving the issues that currently seem to be dealt with only by violence. People are not their beliefs, at least nowhere other than in the media where it’s convenient or lazy to consider them so. The sooner we realise this, the easier it will be for us to all let go of the fear.

SERVICE STREAM – STAYING CONNECTED
he Australian stock market as measured by the S&P/ASX 200 index has been struggling to push ahead, with the index trading around the 5800 level. This equates to the top of our base case scenario for 2017, offering little to get excited about when picking stocks. Having said that, our research team has been keen on buying select stocks from our universe of an emerging companies list that still offer growth potential and value. One such stock that has whet our appetite is a small telecommunications company called Service Stream Limited (SSM). Service Stream provides electricity, telecommunications and water network services, including access, design, build,
installation and maintenance. The company recently upgraded its guidance for the 2017 financial year by 10 per cent, highlighting the National Broadband Network (NBN) roll-out remains firmly on track, with volumes and margins trending positively. The stock remains our key preference for leverage to the NBN roll-out and ongoing associated maintenance work. Earnings (before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) are now
“One stock that has whet our appetite is a small telecommunications company” likely to exceed $46.5 million, a material upgrade on guidance provided at the interim result in February. Previous guidance had been framed around the second-half result broadly matching the first half. We expect the recent TechSafe acquisition (completed April 28) to have made a positive contribution to the energy and water division (circa $600–700,000), but we feel the upgrade clearly implies a
stronger-than-expected performance across the key fixed communications division. We can rationalise the stronger margin performance based on: • The likely positive impact of finalisation adjustments associated with the conclusion of various older contracts. • Broadly stronger volumes across NBN as activation activity ramps up; and • Ongoing operational improvement and scale benefits. The first factor is arguably a one-off, but the other two drivers are likely to prove more enduring. With NBN activation activity expected to continue scaling towards a peak in 2019, and then likely extending three to four years beyond that, Service Stream will have a high degree of revenue visibility with the potential to exceed our forecasts. On face value, our $1.30 price target implies limited upside, but we anticipate further positive revisions over the next 12 months, and as such we retain a ‘buy’ rating.

OUR 50TH YEAR
POLE POSITION FOR COAST’S FIRST AGED CARE Retirement is now a flourishing business on the Sunshine Coast, but until 1960 aged care facilities were unknown and it took some innovative fundraising to get the first community off the ground. WORDS: Dot Whittington.
McGowan Lodge at Sundale in the ’60s, and the pole house outside the Nambour Civic Hall
he first move towards aged care on the Sunshine Coast came from a group of Nambour businessmen and an active Apex Club. The Sundale project officially got off the ground at a meeting on May 27, 1960, reportedly “for the purpose of considering the establishment of a Senior Citizens’ Centre in the Nambour area”. In attendance were Nambour businessman J.D. Grimes and his Enterprise Estates business partners Roy Charlton and Clem Renouf, and Apex Club members Ian Hayne, Noel Parry and Peter Richardson. The meeting discussed the types of units to be built and the ongoing method of operation. Grimes, Charlton and Renouf put up the money that allowed the debt-free purchase of the site in Doolan Street, Nambour. Local pharmacist Ian Hayne (who later built the Fairytale Castle at Bli Bli) had youthful enthusiasm and a vision; Parry donated his time and considerable skills to the design and construction of a “new look

aged people’s village with a minimum of financial backing”; and Richardson mustered support through the pages of his newspaper. There is a another name associated with the success of Sundale, and that’s Ernie Stollznow, who after selling his cane farm, was prepared to work part-time at Sundale as a part-time janitor before becoming its administrator in 1977. He later wrote the story of the first 25 years of Sundale, 1963-88. A survey was carried out which confirmed the need and public support for the project and the Apex Club of Nambour embarked on one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken by a service club. Fundraising remained the big challenge and the Apexians came up with a novel and unprecedented idea that won the imagination of the people in 1962. The seeds were sown by young printer, Wilf Briggs, who in November 1961, perched on a small platform in the middle of Nambour for 24 hours to draw attention to the project. The idea grew and four months later, Hayne and another businessman
Tommy Carter took part in the pole sit-in. Stollznow wrote: “They virtually took to the air and their unique idea of erecting a room on top of a pole proved a winner”. SEQEB provided and erected a sturdy pole which supported a small 2.73m2 room 6 metres above the ground at Station Square near the Nambour Civic Hall. Local businesses chipped in with construction and plumbing and Telecom installed two telephones. Its four window walls were later used in stage one of Nicklin Lodge. “When all was ready, like Noah entering the ark, Ian Hayne and Tommy Carter armed with telephone directories entered the room at 8am on a Saturday morning in February 1962, and came down exactly seven days later,” wrote Stollznow. “There had been 21 meals hoisted up in a basket, each prepared by a different cook. Cold drinks, fruit and cold oysters were provided in lavish quantities. Only midnight revellers provide to be spoil sports. They rocked the stay wires of the pole and the resultant rattle and vibrations in the room caused the pair to first think there was an early cyclone.” From the pole, Hayne and Carter phoned 5000 people seeking donations and reported there had been “not one sour note or rebuff”. The Sundale Appeal was $13,440 richer. The first building, Nicklin Lodge, was opened on November 30, 1963. More than half a century later, Sundale has become a key player in the retirement business on the Sunshine Coast. The last word belongs with Richardson, who wrote: “Today, Sundale stands as proof that when young citizens of goodwill make the ideal of service the basis of all worthy enterprise, great and good things happen.”
THIS MONTH IN HISTORY
Martin Schultz lowers a pipe on the water pipeline from Wappa Dam, December 1959, watched by Dave Low and Eddie de Vere.
When the Kenilworth water supply was officially turned on in June 1957, it became the first town on the Sunshine Coast to have a reticulated water supply. Town water was not connected to Nambour until 1961.
DID YOU KNOW? • The first special fruit train providing a fast goods service for fruit and vegetables ran from the North Coast to Sydney and Melbourne on January 30, 1919 and was very successful. The train was overloaded with fruit from stations south of Gympie by the time it reached Woombye, so an engine was sent from Landsborough to Palmwoods to make up a second train. • Six crew members of shipwrecked barque Thomas King passed through Coolum in 1852 while attempting to reach Brisbane. Only two reached Brisbane alive. The incident may have hastened official resolve to settle coastal areas north of Brisbane. 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.

GET WARM AND FUZZY WITH FUN GALORE THESE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS
BUILD YOUR OWN FUN
SEE THE WHALES FROLIC AND PLAY Itâ€™s hard to believe that we are already halfway through the year. While the kids take time off school to recharge their batteries, ready to take on the next two terms, there is no doubt they will be seeking fun and excitement to warm them up during chilly winter days. Luckily, there is plenty to do on the Coast and My Weekly Preview has compiled some of the greatest and latest events and ideas to help keep the whole family entertained these school holidays.
The school holidays are finally here and what better way to entertain the kids than with an exciting day out on the water watching the humpback whales frolic and play? The whales are on their northern migration, which is a 10,000 kilometre return journey, all the way from Antarctica to the warm waters of Queensland. Our mild winters make the perfect holiday destination from the cold Antarctic summer. Pregnant female whales, who come to Queensland to give birth, are accompanied by their family groups, supporting each other on the long trek up the coastline, while single females attract pods of male escorts, all vying for their attention. The acrobatic displays of the single males will delight even the toughest crowd. At an average weight of 25-30 tonnes, they cause quite a splash and these beautiful mammals love to show off. Known as the acrobats of the sea, humpback whales launch themselves out of the water in
breathtaking displays before twisting and splashing back into the ocean. They love to interact with spectators, often coming alongside the boat to get a better view of human visitors. Jump in the Whale One boat and have a day to remember with these majestic giants of the deep. Visit whaleone.com.au.
For those of you looking for a little more adventure, we have the perfect solution. Wild One is back just in time for the school holidays. This low-profile speed boat makes the trip out to the whales in record time. With only 48 seats, you are guaranteed a great view. Bring your camera, sit back and enjoy the show.
Provide your child with the ultimate Lego experience and educate them in key STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) concepts with a Bricks 4 Kidz workshop these school holidays. From creator to robotics there is something for everyone, simply drop your child off and let them get to work and be inspired. Bricks 4 Kidz provide Lego technic and creator workshops that blend specially designed Bricks 4 Kidz models, Lego games and creative free time that is inspired by themes such as Minecraft, Ninjago and Lego City. Coding with Lego Robotics is also available. Junior students will learn to write programs with WeDo software to control and operate the unique models that they build. Advanced Robotics students will learn the principles of robotics and programming. Workshops run from 9am â€“ 4pm with children (ages five and up) rotating through various Lego activities. All they need to bring is a nut-free lunch, water bottle and a hat for active break times. 462 Maroochydore Road, Kuluin. Visit bricks4kidz.com.au.

car that’s been around for longer than many of the people who drive it. So why are we driving it? Well, because the upgrades are probably the biggest advance in this model for years. Fittingly, most of them are beneath the surface. Absolutely no fanfare, which is just the way its buyers like it. They include the addition of vehicle stability control, active traction control, brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution – all enhancing its rather ordinary safety characteristics. The big, 4.6-litre V8 turbo-diesel gets a tweak with a diesel particulate filter making it cleaner-running, as well as piezoelectric fuel injectors. Combined with some alterations to the five-speed manual transmission, it’s 10 per cent more fuelefficient with a claimed average of 10.7L/100km. This macho Cruiser isn’t without its luxuries though. It’s just that they’re not really considered luxuries anymore. Electric windows. Airconditioning. CD player. The aircon controls are straight out of the ’70s – in fact they haven’t changed at all from the 1978 Toyota Celica that was my first car. Don’t be fooled into thinking that this rumbling big machine has allowed technology to pass it by, though. That V8 turbo diesel is not subtle, but impressive. There’s nothing refined about the engine
GLORIOUSLY OLD-SCHOOL With its ’80s styling and tough, old-school interior, this legendary Toyota ute might be the world’s friendliest dinosaur. Words: Peter Atkinson, AAP.
echnically, this isn’t really a new car review at all. Because this car has been around on our roads for more than 30 years. It’s called the Toyota LandCruiser 79, and if it looks familiar to you, it should. The first version of this model hit the roads back in the mid-80s and it’s changed its appearance little in the three decades since. Beneath the skin, though, it has recently undergone a comprehensive upgrade to its drivetrain and electronic safety package that
has brought this hairy-chested off-roader kicking and screaming into the 21st century. The LC79 is stubbornly, gloriously oldschool. That boxy, squared-off shape of the 70 Series perfectly identifies it as a no-frills, super-macho version of the world’s favourite four-wheel-drive. Unlike other LandCruisers, it offers a ute, dual-cab, wagon and troop-carrier configuration. The 70 Series’ old-style appearance isn’t to satisfy some fad or the latest trend. It looks retro because it is – a
or the transmission. None of those shift-onthe-fly buttons here. You want all-wheel-drive in low-range, then grab the dual transfer-case shifter and do your best. The cloth seats, the carpets (and tough rubber floor mats), the hard, plastic dashboard design, the instruments and even the little storage spaces all feel like they’ve been transported from another era. A time when utes were work trucks – not fancy, leather-trimmed pseudo office spaces. Just like in the good old days.
TOYOTA LANDCRUISER 79 SERIES UTE HOW BIG? Almost twice as much cargo capacity as a normal ute – not to mention the gargantuan 3500kg towing and payload capability. HOW FAST? Despite its enormous pulling capacity, it takes time to build up speed, made all the more difficult by the clunky five-speed manual transmission.
HOW THIRSTY? It might be a diesel, but it’s a big one – 4.5 litres in capacity with eight cylinders and a turbocharger, making its average consumption figures of 10.7 L/100km reasonable. HOW MUCH? You’re certainly not paying for luxuries, so its $66,490 price tag might come as a shock.

Brewed Espresso selling coffee for a gold coin donation with all money going to the Lister family Troy Lister is a Sunshine Coast father of two, who has recently undergone surgey with Dr Charlie Teo in Sydney for an aggressive brain cancer. The cancer was causing frequent seizures and debilitating headaches leaving Troy unable to drive or work. Troy’s wife Marie, is now a full-time carer for both Troy and their two young children.

oday I spotted a bloke screaming “Help, shark help!” and I laughed because I knew the shark wasn’t going to help him. When was the last time you saw a shark helping a human? But I’m not one to criticise this fella for such a simple misunderstanding as I myself made an embarrassing stuff-up last weekend. My buddy Troy sent me a text and it said, “Mate, make sure you’ve got nothing on next Saturday, we’re going to Glenn’s 50th”. I felt like a right nong walking into the party naked. Simple misunderstanding. It’s like the time I tried to share a bag of Samboy Atomic Tomato chips with a homeless guy and he told me to bugger off and buy my own. Misunderstanding. I went to overeaters anonymous and said, “Hi my name’s Todd, I’m ready to overeat, anonymously”. The lady at the front asked me to leave. Don’t think I’ll bother with alcoholics anonymous. See, another simple misunderstanding. I went to buy a Siamese fighting fish for my daughter and the pet shop guy said, d, “Do you want an aquarium?” and I was like, “I don’t really care what star sign it is”.. Misunderstanding. I was having dinner with my boss and hiss wife when she said, “How many potatoes
would you like Todd?” I replied “Just the one thanks”. She said “You don’t need to be polite” so I said “OK, just the one thanks you swamp donkey”. Misunderstanding. Worse still, I received a new G-Shock from my lesbian neighbours for my birthday. I think they misunderstood when I said, “I wanna watch”. See, the world is full of crazy misunderstandings but there’s one thing we’ll never get wrong and that’s the greatness of beer. They say nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. Except beer. Beer tastes like skinny can go to hell. This time around we are tucking into a new little something from the good people at Cricketers Arms. The world has no doubt fallen in love with the Cricketers Spearhead Pale Ale so here’s a little treat for the session drinker that is nothing short of a ripper. A dead set clubhouse fave, the CA Session Ale has the perfect balance of character and consistency with a refreshingly big taste. Featuring three types of hops including the quintessential Aussie flavours of Super Pride, the citrus spin of Cascade and the CA signature Amarillo hops, this refreshing Session Ale is designed for the long haul and at 3.5 per cent ABV, will keep you anchored at the crease all afternoon from first drinks to tea. I’m all over the CA Session Ale like a fat man on a cheesecake buffet and I give it four out of five thumbs up. Not that I drink any more. I don’t drink any less either. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

SEEKING OUT A SEA CHANGE
The Sunshine Coast ranks second on the list of the top 25 most popular migration destinations. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
espected demographer Bernard Salt recently tipped the Sunshine Coast to become a bustling business hub filled with young entrepreneurs and hipsters, but for now, the sea change and tree change-seekers are boosting migration to the region. The Coast has long been a desired placed to live and it seems that people seeking a lifestyle change are lining up to move here, prompting more competition for sellers who have put their homes on the market and promoted them through print and online campaigns. The latest internal migration data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows that an increasing number of inter-state and intra-state population movements are to either sea change or tree change regions, or to the outskirts of the capital cities. The Sunshine Coast is ranked second on the list of the top 25 most popular migration destinations. A recorded 6200 people moved to the region during a year, second to the Gold Coast with 6428. Melbourne west (5491), Geelong (4216) and Moreton Bay south (3991) rounded out the top five. Interestingly, of the top 25 regions for
The Sage Landing development in Buderim
net internal migration during the past year, 13 were located outside of the capital cities and were a mix of sea change and tree change type locations. CoreLogic’s Cameron Kusher says the data supports the strong price rises being recorded across many of Australia’s coastal and hinterland regions, especially those within easy commuting distance of the major capital cities. “Overall the data indicates that migration is gathering pace in select regions of the country, a number of which are sea change/tree change areas. On the other hand, Sydney is increasingly shedding
residents to other parts of the country and this is most likely linked to the high cost of housing,” Kusher says. “Coastal, regional areas near Brisbane appear to be significant benefactors of the deteriorating housing affordability in Sydney as an increasing number of people leave the city for more affordable locations.” Long-time Coast developer, and founder of HMR Projects, Harry Reed says the start of the Sage Landing project in Buderim came at the ideal time as demand for premium properties is building across the Coast. Reed agrees with Salt’s predictions that

Buderim will become “the Byron of the north”. He says Buderim’s boutique village atmosphere, its community spirit and its close proximity to some of the best beaches and hinterland locations in the world all contribute to the appeal of the suburb. “A number of my family members call Buderim home because it’s safe, leafy and close to all the Coast has to offer, while being slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of areas like the Maroochydore CBD and the tourist hubs of Mooloolaba and Cotton Tree,” Reed says. “Buderim is on the up-and-up as more and more people realise the great lifestyle on offer.” Sage Landing will contain 13 freehold lots with designer homes.

Well, the Fiji Pro concluded with Matt Wilkinson winning the title out from under fellow Australian Connor O’Leary. That’s one kid who is definitely going to get even better. Five out of the top 10 surfers are Aussies. Julian is now back in the top 10. This is good news heading into J-Bay. Seek and they shall score – had a buddy make an early morning walk around to Granite last week. He scored three to four foot perfection with only four guys out. Sign me up for that stuff. Seems to be a lot of dolphins around lately so I can only assume there must be a few fish around. Watching them as you swim or surf makes life pretty darn special. I’ve even heard that a few whales have been spotted doing their migration north. I can’t wait for their return during the late August and September months. This weekend the conditions look super sweet with amazing weather, but only small waves. So get what you can. I must admit it really has not been that cold. So, enjoy the weekend peeps. The early indication is that it’s looking good for the next few months. Actually I made that up, I have no idea. I’m just putting a positive spin out into the universe.

TAURUS APR 21-MAY 21
GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)
The more compassionately you communicate, the more smoothly the week will proceed. But – if you are stubborn – then expect close relationships to be rather chaotic. Possessive behaviour will also lead to a fraction too much friction.
Geminis are fabulous at formulating ideas, discussing dreams and talking about future plans. But – with dynamic Jupiter and Mars connecting with Mercury (your ruler) – it really is time to be passionately proactive and actually walk your talk.
ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20) Monday’s Mars/Neptune trine is fabulous for pouring energy into creative projects. It also encourages you to help a family member who’s going through a rough patch. But reckless behaviour could mar the rest of the week so tread carefully.
CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)
LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)
VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)
On Monday, Mars and Neptune activate your humanitarian side. So it’s the perfect time to lend a hand to someone who’s in need, at home or far away. Be inspired by birthday great Princess Diana “Everyone has the potential to give something back.”
Lions love drama, and there’ll be plenty of it this week. You’re keen to persuade others but don’t use manipulation to achieve your aims. There’s much more to a current situation than meets the eye, so don’t jump to conclusions.
You have a lot on your plate but if you multi-task, you’ll get things done. The stars highlight networking with a wide range of friends and acquaintances. If you have to speak up in a group, choose your words wisely, as there are many opinions to consider.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
Business and work matters are favoured, as you put creative ideas into action and rub shoulders with influential people. Don’t be a wallflower. Speak up and promote your talents! If you procrastinate, then opportunities will pass you by.
This week’s stars boost your personal magnetism – and your manipulative side. Pluto gives you a surge that increases your desire to be in charge but, if you want to avoid power struggles and unpleasant dramas, then stop trying to control others.
Is it always appropriate to be frank? And is honesty always the best policy? You’re in the mood to rock the boat and be even more open and honest than usual (especially on Tuesday). But is everyone ready for your special brand of truth serum?
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
Your compulsive side is likely to go into overdrive this week, as powerful Pluto amps up your obsession with perfection. But family and friends may find your standards far too demanding. If you push too hard, you’ll just end up driving them away.
Monday’s Mars/Neptune trine is terrific for experiencing fiery bursts of creative inspiration. But fabulous ideas on their own won’t get you far. You must also work on streamlining your daily routine so you are more proactive, productive and persistent.
Get proactive! Your creativity and intuition fire up on Monday, as you take an idea and spin it into a golden reality. If you’re involved with a group, club or organisation, then expect power plays and personality clashes to increase as the week develops.

THE LAST WORD
THE FUNNY SIDE OF POLITICS Of all the political quotes Richard O’Leary has collected in his life, his favourite is by a Sunshine Coast politician.
ichard, an opinion is a bit like a bum, everybody has one and most are full of sh*t.” That’s the sanitised version of one of the blunter pieces of advice I’ve been given by a politician in my role as a media advisor over the years. And I have to say its simple message about not all arguments being born equal has proven true enough. It’s made the list of my favourite political quotes and witticisms, which I’ve been collecting since I was old enough to vote. This remains a favourite: “You want a friend in Washington? Get a dog.” Now I don’t live in Washington but I did buy a dog and called it Truman after the US President who made that remark. Author Mark Twain suggested a canine may also be a smarter companion than one you may find in
America’s political swamp: “Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.’’ I may not be the biggest fan of Ronald Reagan but he was great for a one-liner – the then 73-year-old delivered this one during the 1984 Presidential debate with Walter Mondale: “I want you to know that also I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent’s youth and inexperience.” JFK was more philosophical: “You know nothing for sure… except the fact that you know nothing for sure.’’ While Lincoln wished some people would just shut up: “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” In Australia, Whitlam had a long list of memorable bon mots, but I’ll overlook his Kerr’s cur comments to provide an insight
into his take on politics: “The punters know that the horse named Morality rarely gets past the post, whereas the nag named Self-Interest always runs a good race.” Keating was the king of put-downs in Australia, and John Hewson was often on the wrong end of the political pineapple: “It was the limpest performance I have ever seen ... it was like being flogged with a warm lettuce. It was like being mauled by a dead sheep.” Churchill was Britain’s heavyweight champ: “In those days he was wiser than he is now – he used frequently to take my advice.” But my all-time favourite quip from a politician is from former Sunshine Coast Mayor Bob Abbot, who gave this answer when asked what advice he had for retiring councillors about life after politics: “Don’t wear a red shirt in Bunnings.” email@example.com
