THE FIRST WORD
ISSUE 461 August 11, 2017
THE COAST FROM
My Weekly Preview took to the skies in a helicopter at the weekend thanks to AVID Property Group, who sent 50 people up in the air for a quick tour of the Coast. Mother nature put on a great display for the locals and visitors, many who are buying into the first two stages of AVID’s Harmony development in Palmview. The journey from Palmview out to Mooloolaba showed just how lucky we are to have so many amazing facilities and stunning natural assets in our region. We couldn’t have asked for a better winter’s weekend!
FROM THE EDITOR
magining our future is part of being human. Without wanting to wish away my life, I have on occasion thought about the years that lay ahead, once our son has left the nest (you will hear the sobbing of a mother’s love from miles away), and retirement is upon us. Life can throw many hurdles, but provided health and wellbeing allows it, I’ve imagined spending my senior days travelling the world with my husband; reading books in comfort at home and celebrating milestones with our future generations. Never once did I imagine jumping from a perfectly good plane, or donning a tutu and heading to a ballet studio – until now. The seniors featured in this week’s cover story are living a full life, inspiring not only their peers, but younger generations. They are living proof that age does not necessarily slow you down. I’m sure you will enjoy their stories as much as I did. On the topic of inspiration, many women may find our annual Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network awards feature the boost they need. The 29 finalists – driven and successful women – of the 19th annual awards provide plenty of business advice and words of wisdom ahead of their night of nights. Happy reading. Until next week, take care.

MEET THE TEAM
M Weekly Preview is a high quality magazine My delivering more of what matters to the Sunshine d Co Coast. It features news, business, regular columnists, interesting facts and figures for that hot topic at the dinner table, motoring, socials, travel, health, lifestyles and more, as well as the most up-to-date information on local real estate. The magazine is 100% locally owned, which means we don’t just talk about being local, we are local, we live it every day. Delivered fresh every Friday. We’re also conscious of the environment at MWP – all our home delivered magazines are wrapped in degradable plastic.
Nikki was impressed with the seniors in our cover story. “I just want to state for the record that I’m way off retirement. But, when I do retire, I’m going to smash out all eight seasons of Game of Thrones, buy a caravan and work through Cocktails 101 sitting by the pool.”

MOVIE MAN First job? Petrol station attendant. My dad let my brother and I work there and earn some pocket money. Petrol was not unleaded in those days, so I think we got lead poisoning, which could explain a few things. What are you currently working on? I’m currently working on the annual Caloundra Film Festival which will run from October 3–10. This year we’re hosting the first Sunshine Coast Spanish Film Festival Film Festival as part of that. We’re also going to host a student showcase with work from film and television students in the region. A YouTube exec based in Singapore is going to do a Google Hangout with the kids, there will be a VR workshop and other activities. I also run the Sunshine Coast Surf Film Festival and have had a couple of documentaries made in the last couple of years. Your family includes… My wife Corinne and my kids Jude, nine and Sabine, six. We came at the family thing later in life and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
BIO Murray Power is a Caloundra-based scriptwriter and producer with a recent film, Ella, premiering at last year’s Melbourne Film Festival. He also curates and directs the Caloundra Film Festival and the Sunshine Coast Surf Film Festival, annual events that now have monthly screenings in Caloundra, drawing big crowds. His children are his proudest achievement.

First car? A Holden Premier. It wasn’t treated with the respect it deserved.
What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? The golden arch of Kings, Shelly and Moffat Beach. If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? Greater connection between art and commerce. I’ve been lucky that the Struik family, owners of the cinemas in Caloundra, have been so helpful in launching both the Caloundra Film Festival and Sunshine Coast Surf Film Festival. Without their support and the support of the Deputy Mayor Tim Dwyer, we wouldn’t be here. Now we are attracting support from the local Telstra stores, McGrath Real Estate, WDCI and others. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? Opening my own business in Sydney was pretty big. I had to grow up a lot, accept responsibilities and it was character changing. It was in music retail and we had a good run for 20 years before the iPod came along.
“A YouTube exec based in Singapore is going to do a Google Hangout”
Favourite book? Impossible, but Catcher in the Rye and Catch 22 for starters.
Your greatest regret? Not buying a house in inner Sydney for $230K. I thought it was too expensive and coming from Queensland, I didn’t get why there wasn’t any yard. What achievement are you most proud of? Jude and Sabine. Incredible kids.
What are you reading now? Corinne got me a great book recently called Thinker, Failure, Soldier, Sailor, which is an anthology of great lives in 365 days. It’s laugh out loud stuff. Some people’s lives are outrageous.
You are happiest when? With them, probably. Everything else is unprintable. And unlawful.
Favourite song? That’s impossible too, but I’ll throw you A Day In The Life by The Beatles. A perfect meeting of two incredible songwriters and a great producer resulting in a song that is still an outstanding recording achievement 50 years later. Most bands are simply not capable of such music. I should know, I was in one of them.
How do you deal with your frustrations? Diving into the sea. All year round.
Best advice you’ve been given? Don’t believe a word of what the religious Brothers are telling you at school. It’s all rubbish. My dad. He was right.
NRL or AFL? NRL. A number of teams. I’m having a competition with a friend in my street to see how many teams we can support in any one year. He’s beating me.
What frustrates you the most? That’s a very long list, but cruelty is top of it.
If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? Not to be so hesitant. Be disciplined. Believe in yourself. Tea or coffee? Both, but I love coffee.

SENIORS LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST Meet three Sunshine Coast seniors proving it’s never too late to dance like no one is watching, scare yourself silly in the name of a good cause, or take up a new sport. It’s all about the attitude. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
ow do you see yourself in your seventies, eighties or nineties? Could you picture yourself doing pliés at the barre clad in lycra? How about skydiving at 15,000 feet? Or maybe spending 10 hours a week on the green chasing an elusive hole-in-one? It’s all possible and as Seniors Week approaches from August 19 to 27, it’s time to celebrate the region’s over 55s, who are continuing to take life on in full throttle. Just over one-third of the Sunshine Coast population is made up of seniors aged 55 and over, so it wasn’t hard to track down seniors who are stunning the community with their drive, determination, and passion for what they do – in fact, it was hard to pick just a few to feature. But before we get into their individual stories, let us share a few words of wisdom from University of the Sunshine Coast lecturer in psychology, Dr Prudence Millear. Dr Millear says the key to living a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life in your golden years lies in one simple thing – having a positive attitude. “There’s quite a bit of research to show that people who have a positive selfperception of ageing live on average seven-and-a-half years longer than others who don’t,” she says. “The more you do it, the easier it is to do. It’s a virtuous circle, if you think about it that way. It is, of course, harder if you are unwell, but it still matters that you see life as still worth doing. “One of the best things you can do is to be grateful for what you have. You may not be as fit as you used to be, but if you’ve woken up to a glorious winter’s day and the sun is shining, that is something to be grateful for, as are the people you have around you. “It is all about an attitude, it’s all about the way you see the world. If you think it’s hard and horrible, that’s what you get back.” And while some in society may be quick to tell you that you are ‘too old’ to do something, Millear says seniors can easily choose not to hear this and ensure they are doing all they can to keep their bodies strong, their minds active, and stay socially connected. “Don’t listen to them, listen to your inner child, have fun with life. Life’s too short to spend it with dull people, so go and find some interesting ones.”
JEANETTE: 75-YEAR-OLD BALLERINA Image: Greg Gardner Photography
10 My Weekly Preview | August 11, 2017
Although Jeanette Thomas spent her teens and early twenties working as a professional dancer for the Borovansky
Ballet (a precursor to the Australian Ballet) and then in musical theatre, her husband and three children had never seen her dance until she joined Lyn Fitzsimon’s Adult Dance Circle classes at the age of 73 and rekindled her passion for dance. Jeanette studied under Phyllis Danaher, the founder of Ballet Theatre of Queensland, and was performing for the Borovanksy up until it closed. It was then that she found musical theatre and spent 10 years performing in Australia in productions as varied as My Fair Lady, Hello Dolly, and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. “I just went from musical to musical and then a colleague and myself decided to work on a cruise ship doing cabaret, but we didn’t come prepared with the right documentation and landed in England without a plan,” Jeanette says. “Within a year, I’d met David and fell head over heels in love. Life then took a very different turn and I continued work as a secretary before becoming a housewife.” The couple moved to the Sunshine Coast in 2006 and Jeanette discovered the Senior Swans ballet class 18 months ago.
“It can feel daunting, but once I set foot in the studio, I felt completely at home” Despite having a double hip replacement 10 years ago, she overcame reservations her body “wouldn’t be able to do what it used to,” and hasn’t looked back. “After being a performer, you never get that real high that you experience when you are a dancer in being able to express yourself in that way,” Jeanette says. “Even though the body doesn’t react as you’d love it to now – I’ll never get my turnout back and pointe is out of the question – you still get an awful lot out of your soul with the music and the movement. Jeanette says there is a real social element to her classes, allowing her to connect with people aged in their thirties through to their seventies. They come from a range of backgrounds, with many doing ballet as young children and others who are picking up the art form for the very first time in the Senior Swans class. “My husband and I walked and I used to go to the gym a bit just to keep alive and moving, but it doesn’t inspire you much,” she says. “With dance, you not only get the myweeklypreview.com.au

COVER STORY on my third jump, you are up there and the wind is whistling past you while your legs hang out the door and you think, â€˜Iâ€™m an idiot, why am I doing this?â€™.â€? So far, eight people have taken the leap through the initiative, and the self-funded charity has raised $12,000 through this yearâ€™s Freefall for the Future, which is enough to run the program in six schools. Although Bob says his skydiving days are now behind him, he will continue to mentor young people and share his life experience to prevent them from making avoidable mistakes. â€œOlder people should mentor younger people and help them to learn, weâ€™ve been around a lot longer than they have,â€? he says. â€œThe more of this that happens in our community lifestyle, the better life will be for everybody concerned.â€?
movement, it also improves your balance, agility and general health. I just feel so good when Iâ€™m dancing. It just steps inside you, thatâ€™s the thing I think, you realise how much youâ€™ve missed it.â€? Determined to take her passion as far as she can, Jeanette is again taking the Royal Academy of Dancing exams through the studio. â€œIt brings back the memories and itâ€™s quite nice to re-enter that discipline again,â€? she says. â€œI would say to anyone that they should give it a go. It can feel daunting, but once I set foot in the studio, I felt completely at home and Lyn has this way of teaching that allows people of all dancing ability to have a great time and learn new skills.â€?
BOB: 86-YEAR-OLD SKYDIVER You would be forgiven for thinking it is slightly nuts to jump out of a perfectly good plane at the age of 70, but to do it twice more at the ages of 85 and 86 takes a special kind of crazy. But passionate youth mentor Bob Sherwell would do just about anything to help troubled Sunshine Coast kids to have a better future. And even when it meant skydiving to raise money for programs to support at-risk young people, it was a challenge he embraced willingly. The Buderim resident first tried skydiving when he was 70 years old. â€œMy wife was overseas and I thought Iâ€™d give it a whirl,â€? he says. â€œI enjoyed the adrenaline rush and when I turned 86 last year, I thought Iâ€™d do it again. Fran was not terribly enthusiastic about that, so we agreed that if I was going to do something stupid, I should make some money out of it.â€? Bob jumped at 15,000 feet, alongside granddaughter Ashleah Taylor to raise vital funds for the Potential Project for Al Taylor for Kids (ATK). Allan Taylor, who spearheaded the school chaplaincy movement on the Coast and was a passionate advocate for showing troubled kids their true potential, was Bobâ€™s son-in-law.
MARY: 96-YEAR-OLD GOLFER
Bob Sherwell and granddaughter Ashleah He and wife Kari were killed in a car crash in 2009 and the foundation was set up to continue his tireless work. Bob has been one of its biggest supporters. His skydive in June last year raised $8000 for the program, which is run by John Murphy with the assistance of eight regular volunteers who go into schools around the Coast and work with kids at risk who might be self-harming, disengaging from their education, or living in various abusive situations at home. They are assisted over a period of eight weeks through school-based programs to unlock their potential and can also attend an annual camp for up to 70 young people to enjoy fun activities and learn about their value as individuals to set them on the right path in life. Bob jumped again in June this year as part of a new Freefall for the Future scheme, where anyone can earn a skydive, if they raise $1500 for ATK. â€œItâ€™s addictive, I tell you,â€? Bob says. â€œYouâ€™d think you get used to it, but even
Every Tuesday and Thursday, Mary Hadden drives herself from her home at Immanuel Gardens in Buderim to the Maroochy River Golf Club in Bli Bli and spends up to five hours on the green playing 18 holes. It sounds like the life of many a retiree on the Coast, but what makes Mary different is her age. She is 96 years old. Mary is the clubâ€™s oldest member and has been frequenting the new course and
the former Horton Park course since she moved to the Coast with her late husband Don in 1982. Golf has been a passion of Maryâ€™s life for 54 years and started on a bit of a whim. â€œI just had a feeling that I would like to play golf and I mentioned it to my husband one day and the next day, he arrived with a set of golf clubs for me. That was Don,â€? she says fondly. After taking golf lessons with PGA legend Billy McWilliam at Sydneyâ€™s Beverley Park with her son John, Mary quickly left her successful A-grade tennis pursuits to take on the eternal golf challenge. â€œIt gets you in. Itâ€™s a real challenge and you meet so many nice people. My husband used to say that golfers are really special types of people,â€? she says. At Horton Park, Mary held just about every committee position at different times over the years, from president to treasurer, handicap manager to veterans delegate â€“ she has done it all. On top of that, she was the clubâ€™s florist, creating nine different arrangements throughout the clubhouse each week. Although she hasnâ€™t won any competition badges since the Maroochy River course opened two years ago, Mary is still playing with a handicap of 33 and gives the younger players a run for their money while always being impeccably dressed. â€œIâ€™m no good at social anything, Iâ€™ve got to be playing for something, thatâ€™s the point,â€? she quips. â€œI get around on the cart nowadays, I was walking the course until I was 85, but I have no illnesses, no arthritis, not anything and people donâ€™t believe me when I tell them how old I am. â€œI will play for as long as I can, who knows when something might give out? Iâ€™ll just keep going as long as I can. Youâ€™re never too old to play, so just get out there and do it.â€?

COAST MUM A FINALIST IN MUMPRENEUR AWARDS Kym Foster (pictured) of Shareshop has been selected as a finalist for the 2017 AusMumpreneur Awards as a Rising Star. Shareshop is an online money-free marketplace that connects people and resources so they can live more of the life they love. It allows people and businesses to use whatever skills, talents, products or services they already have, to get what they require or desire, using Shareshop’s currency of points instead of money. The Sunrise Beach mum says the Shareshop has more than 600 members nationwide. The winners of the 2017 AusMumpreneur Awards will be announced at a glamorous awards dinner at Doltone House in Sydney on August 25.
CLEANTECH EXPERTS TO CONVERGE AT FORUM Leading Australian architect and presenter of the TV series Grand Designs Australia, Peter Maddison (pictured), will join Dr Keith Suter to share the latest information and solutions to save energy, water, waste and money at the Cleantech Effect 2017. The focus of the event is on the challenges of ‘designing our future’ and creating sustainable communities. The forum will be held on August 23 from 11.45am to 7.30pm at the Lake Kawana Community Centre. To find out more, Google: cvent.com/events/cleantech-effect-2017.
BLACK TIE GALA TO END DOMESTIC VIOLENCE The Luke Batty Foundation Black Tie Gala Dinner will be held at Peppers Noosa. The Battys’ tragic story spurred the nation to action, with Luke’s mother Rosie named Australian of the Year in 2015. The gala dinner will raise much-needed funds for domestic violence prevention and awareness and will feature live entertainment by Hurricane, silent auctions, raffles, and a three-course dinner as designed by head chef Andy Wilcox and award-winning chef and guest of honour Matt Golinski. Tickets are $100 and available from tinyurl.com/peppersnoosaLBB.
As Homelessness Week is upon us, SunnyKids CEO Chris Turner says many people may be surprised to know that 75 per cent of people living in SunnyKids’ homelessness services are children, mostly aged 12 years and under. “Last year alone, SunnyKids supported 140 children who were homeless,” he says. “The real problem that we need to address is that homelessness is an outcome of intergenerational disadvantage – over 50 per cent of the adults in our services were also homeless as children themselves; there is a clear pattern.” Another issue on the Sunshine Coast is that the true picture of homelessness is difficult to gauge because local services are at full capacity.
READERS AND WRITERS GET SET FOR FESTIVAL More than 100 international, national and regional creatives will converge on Coolum for the second annual Sunshine Coast International Readers and Writers Festival. The festival runs over August 12 and 13 in five venues, including the Coolum Civic Centre and major presentation marquees in the precinct’s Jack Morgan Park. Festival founder and director Wendy O’Hanlon says the program includes writers of all genres, slam poets and singer-songwriters, a world-class children’s and young adults writers’ program, children’s storytelling and craft activities, plus a variety of artisan market stalls and information stalls manned by regional environmental groups. The focus this year is on Papua New Guinea authors and Rashmii Amoah Bell (pictured) is among the presenters. Visit sunshinecoastreadersandwritersfestival.com.

USC SWIMMING STARS RETURN HOME WITH MEDALS Local swimmers have made a splash at the FINA World Championships in Hungary and have returned home with a clutch of medals and personal best times. University of the Sunshine Coast Spartans swimmer Kaylee McKeown cemented her place as a future star of the Australian team after winning a silver medal in the mixed medley relay and touching fourth in the women’s 200 metres backstroke. Kaylee’s sister Taylor also picked up a bronze medal in the 4 x 100 metres medley relay, while Leah Neale bagged a bronze medal after a blistering swim in the heats of the 4 x 200 metres freestyle. USC was also wellrepresented in the FINA Open Water events, with students Jack Brazier and securing bronze medals in the Australian mixed five-kilometre Open Water event.
NEXT FACELIFT FOR BULCOCK STREET REVEALED The design for the next stage of a major streetscape upgrade for Caloundra’s Bulcock Street has been finalised. Work on this next stage is valued at $2 million and is expected to start in April 2018. It will see the section between Minchinton Street to Knox Avenue intersection upgraded. Design improvements will include new footpaths, additional street furniture, new trees and shrubs, directional signage and public art. The roadway will be reshaped and upright kerbs removed as per lower Bulcock Street. The design can be viewed at sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au from August 15 to 24.
$500,000 THOUSANDS FLOCK TO CONCERT Almost 4000 people flocked to the Sunshine Coast Stadium to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the naming of the region with the Our Sunshine Coast Concert. MC and performer Darren Percival led the festivities, which included powerful performances by the Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra backed by a 400-strong choir and the finalists of a Sunshine Coast Song competition. The Sunday storm held off until after the jam-packed afternoon of entertainment wrapped up. Festivities continue through to October. A full list of event is available at sunshinecoast.qld. gov.au.
A $500,000 Federal Government grant has saved the Buderim Men’s Shed. Members of Australia’s largest Men’s Shed discovered last year they had to move from the Mill Road site it has been located at since its inception six years ago. The Shed has since secured a lease on State Government land at Kuluin, which was ready for them to relocate to once the Mill Road lease expired in 2022. The 300-strong membership had made plans to build a custom-designed shed and community centre there and had raised $100,000 towards the project. The Coalition Government’s Building Better Regions Fund grant means building plans can begin as early as this year.
COAST WELCOMES STUDENT AMBASSADORS Twelve new volunteer ambassadors from five countries have started their duties in promoting the region’s education benefits as part of the Study Sunshine Coast student ambassador program. Deputy Mayor Councillor Tim Dwyer says the ambassador program, now in its second year, promotes Study Sunshine Coast student ambassadors with Cr Tim Dwyer the region through student ambassadors attending events and activities and sharing their experiences through blogs, videos and social media. This year’s ambassadors are from the USA, China, Canada and the Philippines.

MOOLOOLABAâ€™S UPGRADE BEGINS Supporters of the northern caravan park at Mooloolaba vow to fight on as the new plans take effect. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-Oâ€™Kane.
he Mooloolaba foreshore will look drastically different in just a few years, with the first phase of the Place Making Mooloolaba Master Plan to get underway soon. The plan, which was initially endorsed by the Sunshine Coast Council in 2015 saw the June 30 closure of the former Mooloolaba Caravan Park, which had been a fixture on the beachfront for 100 years. A council spokesperson says the former northern Mooloolaba caravan park site will be used as a temporary car park for 124 vehicles to provide alternative parking options while the Brisbane Road car park development is underway (to be completed in September). â€œWhile the site is being used as a temporary car park, our community will enjoy access to the beach via a connecting pedestrian walkway which was not possible when the site was a caravan park,â€? the spokesperson says. The council aims to begin constructing the additional Brisbane Road car parks in mid-2018. â€œConstruction will start on the foreshore redevelopment when the new multi-storey Brisbane Road car park opens,â€? the spokesperson says.
ENTIRE KLUGER RANGE FREE ON ROAD COSTS + $500 FREE FUEL
Mooloolaba foreshore (artistâ€™s impression) The new-look foreshore will include more than 6200 square metres of additional parkland with a kiosk, an outdoor gym, a new amenities building, public art, a modern adventure playground and furniture, as well as a refurbished Loo with a View structure. The most talked about component of the plan is the move to see the former caravan park site returned to the community. The closure of the caravan park was a huge disappointment for the Mooloolaba Caravan Park Action Group. Spokesperson Jon Erbacher says the councilâ€™s statistics show 72
per cent of the people who provided feedback over two phases of community consultation for the master plan supported the relocation of the caravan park, not its closure. In addition, 3065 people signed a Queensland Parliament e-petition against the closure of the caravan park. Erbacher says he cannot believe the council â€œchose to ignoreâ€? the petition as well as the recommendation from Natural Resources Minister Anthony Lynham that the council give serious consideration to amending the master plan to include a

caravan park in the final development of the Mooloolaba foreshore. â€œCaravan parks are very popular with both tourists and locals and they support local shops and business owners,â€? he says. While the council has made it clear the land will be tied up as a car park for the next two years, Erbacher says the action group has not admitted defeat yet and will begin lobbying again in two years to have the caravan park to be reinstated or relocated. Meanwhile, Mooloolaba Business and Tourism President Bruce Ferguson says the master plan will be a marathon rather than a sprint, but the â€œdisruption will outweigh the future benefits.â€? â€œThis project is going to culminate in a fabulous, modern area that is going to attract residents and locals for a long time to come,â€? he says. Ferguson agrees with the councilâ€™s decision not to renew the northern caravan park lease in order to open the space up to the public.

NEW CBD DRAWS MAJOR INTEREST
Memorandum of Understanding has been signed by the Sunshine Coast Council, global infrastructure and property development company John Holland, the University of the Sunshine Coast, and SunCentral Maroochydore signalling the continuation of exclusive negotiations to develop multiple lots in the new Maroochydore city centre. John Holland, which delivered the $150 million Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital in Kawana, is poised to take a stake in the new city centre in a deal with an end value of more than $200 million. USC vice-chancellor Greg Hill says the university is considering a combination of student accommodation, teaching and community spaces in the new city centre, while the council has already committed to having its primary civic presence in the core commercial precinct, with customer service facilities, a council chamber and work space accommodation for staff and councillors. Mayor Mark Jamieson says the council will maintain a strong presence in Nambour and Caloundra into the future. Jamieson says John Holland’s interest in the CBD project is a “huge vote of confidence in the future of the Sunshine Coast.” “We are creating Australia’s first truly smart city for the 21st Century – one which
John Holland Group Queensland and Northern Territory Project Director Chris Mattes, Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson, USC Vice-Chancellor Professor Greg Hill, SunCentral Maroochydore Pty Ltd Board Chairperson Doug McTaggart will generate thousands of construction jobs, more than 15,000 permanent jobs and provide a $4.4 billion boost for the local economy,” he says. “John Holland obviously understands the value in being part of the early stages of this development and the growth trajectory of our region, with the development of a new CBD, the opening of the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital, the expansion of the Sunshine Coast Airport and our plans for an international broadband submarine cable linking the region directly to global markets.”
FAREWELL GARTH FRASER A Caloundra resident who was a worldrenowned expert in small scale model railways and a passionate member of the Buderim-Palmwoods Heritage Tramway committee has passed away. Garth Fraser was a brilliant electrical engineer of world standing with a love of railways and was the driving force behind the restoration of the original KRAUSS locomotive, which ran between Buderim and Palmwoods between 1914 and 1935. Garth graduated from the University of Queensland in 1953, then spent a year in the USA on a general electric’s graduate training program, followed by four years with the Canadian Navy based in Ottawa. In 1958, he returned to Brisbane to undertake further studies and was a lecturer at the Queensland University until 1971, when he moved into the defence industry in Holland and subsequently South Australia. He retired as chief scientist at AWA Defence Industries in 1990 and he and his wife Myra settled in Buderim until later moving into a retirement village in Caloundra in 2009. Garth had a love of model railways and was a member of the Caloundra District Model Railway Association. He was also a world-renowned expert in small scale model railways and in 2005 received the award of Master Model
Railroader from the worldwide National Model Railroad Association – one of a small number of people in Australia to receive this award. He also designed and built a diorama of the old Buderim tramway yards, which were located on part of the present school grounds, swimming pool site and the top end of Lindsay Road. The diorama includes models of the KRAUSS loco and rolling stock. It is displayed by the BuderimPalmwoods Heritage Tramway group and will be included in the display of the KRAUSS loco in Buderim when that eventuates.

GEARING UP FOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS Buderim cyclist Alexandra Martin-Wallace broke an Australian record in March and will this month head to Italy to compete in the Junior Cycling World Championships. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
hile most Year 12 students are buckling down for the business end of their school years, Buderim cyclist Alexandra Martin-Wallace is preparing to head to Italy for six weeks to compete in the UCI Junior Cycling World Championships from August 23 to 27. The 17-year-old Year 12 Matthew Flinders Anglican College student broke the national record in March for the 2000-metre pursuit at the Cycling Australia Track National Championships in Brisbane, putting her on the radar for the Tokyo Olympics (she’s too young for next year’s Commonwealth Games). With the world record at 2.22 and the Australian record having been 2.26, Alex came in at 2.24, becoming a new Australian champion with a promising future. “It’s really exciting, it’s my first time going overseas for cycling,” Alex says of her trip to Italy. “There are 15 junior athletes going with the Australian team and my aim is to go well in the 2K pursuit – that’s what I train for.” While track cyclists are known to push and shove their opponents on the velodrome, it’s not this young champion’s style. “It can be really aggressive and you have to watch and make sure you have good positioning to be able to stay up the front and not crash,” Alex says. “A lot of people head butt, elbow or start pushing each other. They’ll fight to get into a certain position they want on the track. It can be really argy bargy, so it can be quite dangerous. As long as there’s no crashes and nothing bad happens, people usually get away with it. It happens often in bunches while we’re racing; if someone starts pushing me around, I’m not going to budge for them, but I don’t try and cause crashes.” Alex’s mum Tess says her daughter is level-headed but not hell-bent on success at all costs: “She’s a very clean rider – she definitely doesn’t step on people to get where she wants. She doesn’t nudge, doesn’t push, doesn’t use any tactics in racing to try
and get the right manoeuvre. It’s unusual in track racing.” Alex started out doing triathlons at 10, but cycling quickly became her main passion. “For one, I really liked the cycling community,” she says. “When I was younger, I did it a lot for fun – I wasn’t one of the best. But then I wanted to go really well and had the aim to compete at the Olympics and Commonwealth Games. Cycling is really hard but it’s also tactical and you have to think. I just love the feeling of riding and going as fast as I can.” Alex trains for 20 hours a week, with road or track rides and/or gym workouts every day – she often leaves for rides at 4am before school. It’s a lot to fit in, along with studying
Year 12. She plans to study engineering at university next year so taking time out at a crucial point of her studies is risky. “This is term three and she’s away for six weeks, but she manages her time well and she tries to study while she’s away. I’m sure she’ll be all right. She got her OP prediction yesterday and it’s really good.” “It can be pretty hard to balance it all,” says Alex. “It’s a lot of time off school but I’m trying to get the study done, which is really tricky.” While she doesn’t have time for much of a social life outside school and cycling, she does manage to play cello in the school band and orchestra and like any teenager, loves going to the beach.
Unfortunately, it looks like Alex will miss out on competing at the Commonwealth Games, even though she raced against elite open cyclists at the International Track Series in Melbourne last week and won a couple of races despite being a junior and having fewer gears than her older competitors. “In cycling, you can’t represent your country until you’re 20 at the very youngest, and they prefer you to be older,” says Tess. “You can’t race on open gears until you are 19. It’s an international rule; young kids are locked out of big gears and have to learn to spin really fast and every two years they gain an extra couple of gears until they reach 19. This preserves their hips. They also can’t use carbon bikes or fancy wheels”. As a junior athlete, Alex has to fund her sporting career and recently received a grant of $2500 as a runner-up in the Colonial First State Sports Boost bursary, however the fee to attend the World Championships is much more and she has created a Go Fund Me Page to help her get to the velodrome in Italy to compete. If her racing to date is anything to go by, it will be a stellar performance.

ZEN AND THE ART OF THE SCHOOL RUN
HOW TRANSPARENT IS OUR COUNCIL?
Sami Muirhead is sick of starting each day frazzled and has put a call out to other mums for advice on how to manage the morning mayhem.
Alex McKean says the way our council has dealt with the Sekisui House proposal for Yaroomba raises serious questions about democracy.
ur mornings are not exactly Zen. I want to be all Angelina Jolie in her UNICEF ambassador role as we start the morning. I dream of calmly sending my cherub offspring into the world to find wonder in every beautiful step. However, I am more like Angelina when she went through that weird crazy stage of wearing a vial of blood around her neck. You know. A bit possessed or something. On some days, I look like a banshee complete with spinning head and gurgling noises of panic. The morning mayhem and school scramble leave me swearing I will do it better tomorrow. Because I do not like hustle and bustle. I adore my kids and I want to be a good parent and lead the way by example by being present and calm. But the morning rush is my damn kryptonite. I know I will miss these frenetic years, but they are a little stressful. “Clean your teeth. Now! Teeth! Now! Teeth! Teeeeth!” can pretty much be heard down the entire street in my efforts to get the three kids out the door before the school bell rings. “Go! Go! Go! Now! Go! Go! Go!” is my next chain of command to try to shove them into the car. “Ruuuuuuuuunn. Just ruuuunnn!”are often the final words they hear as I drag them across the car park as the bell is ringing. The kids of course find every excuse under the sun to not get ready for school
and think the morning is the perfect time to start to read a book or tip out the entire tub of Lego or insist on porridge for breakfast. The other sock can never be found. The sports hat is missing. The backpack has gone. And the bread is all too often mouldy or I plain forgot to buy it. One friend I shall not name (Maya) asked me once if I put maca powder in my kids’ smoothies each morning. Smoothies? Mine get burnt toast with a scrape of butter. On a good day. In an attempt to gain some calm into the cocoon, I asked my friends for some advice. The response was overwhelming. Preparation is clearly key. For the achievers, they all said having the uniforms laid out is a must, a ban on iPads and TV is in play, the lunches are made the night before and a visual chart helps a lot. But here are some of the funniest responses from my dear friends. Samantha wisely told me, “Just have stronger coffee”. Kellie suggested wine for breakfast. Bec recommended putting the wine in a traveller mug so everyone thinks it’s coffee. Lisa the rebel is late every day, but literally dances across the school car park in a bubble of bliss with her teenage son and says we should enjoy the most important meal of the day with our kids and just don’t stress about missing the roll call. Life is too short. Thank you wise mums for your advice. I will start with baby steps, a new attitude, and a gleaming traveller mug.

n the last occasion when Sekisui House challenged the town plan, the people of the Sunshine Coast won a significant victory. In April 2015, when the council rejected the proposal then on the table, the older and wiser heads among the assembled members of the Yaroomba community at that council meeting said ‘Sekisui will be back’. They were dead right. What can go unnoticed in the hurly-burly of spin, claim and counterclaim, about developments like that proposed by Sekisui House for the Yaroomba site, is the amount of effort required by community members, and community groups, to ensure that development is sustainable and appropriate. On one side of the argument there is access to paid lobbyists, performing introductions and smoothing the path for the overturning of a town plan developed after a process of consultation with over 3500 Sunshine Coast residents, stakeholders and community groups. On the other are groups of working people, defending a town plan created with their democratic input, while the supposedly neutral umpire tears down signs posted on fences which creatively give voice to opposition. It is important that the current proposal is viewed in light of the history of
the relationship between the proponent and the council. On April 28, 2015, the mayor, Mark Jamieson, said that three options were on the table when Sekisui previously sought to make changes to the planning scheme. He said that one of those options was, ‘to slip the major change into the planning scheme without community consultation, which I’m sure, I’m sure would have been approved by the then State Government and construction may have commenced by now’. While the council decided not to go down that road, this statement by the mayor raises some very serious questions. It would be very interesting to know who made the proposal that the democratic will of the people of the Sunshine Coast should be overridden in such a cavalier fashion, by ‘slipping in’ a major change without any form of community consultation? It is also of interest that such a proposal was even considered as an option by the council. Frankness is also required as to what consideration was given to such action being taken and which, if any, of the councillors argued in support of such disregard for the town plan, and the residents and ratepayers of the Sunshine Coast. The community should be informed of these matters so a transparent and democratic process can attend the decision making about this important issue.

CROWN RESORTS – ROYAL IN WAITING
rown Resorts is one of Australia’s largest entertainment groups with its core business in integrated resorts. The company appears to be emerging from a troubled 12 months. Nonetheless, we believe the company is undertaking significant changes to its strategy. Our increased confidence in management to focus on shareholder returns drives us to upgrade our earnings estimates. In our view, the downside risks are well incorporated into the share price and can be mitigated by a number of factors: • Crown has undertaken significant costcutting. We forecast a decrease in operating expenditures at the Melbourne and Perth operations. We believe the expected weak VIP performance and Perth softness can be mitigated by cost-savings potential.
• The prospect of partnerships will reduce capital intensity in Crown’s domestic operations, while recent de-leveraging provides potential upside. Our forecast FY17 net debt to operating profit (EBITDA) ratio of 0.4 times suggests significant opportunity, with possible activity ranging from privatisation to further share buybacks and global partnerships. • We believe CrownBet’s margin improvement and the recent ACCC appeal of the Tabcorp/ Tatts Group merger increase the potential for a joint bid for Tatts’ wagering and lotteries business. Crown’s interest in retail, with a $300 million investment in Clubs NSW, underpins the retail wagering strategy. • Crown faces challenges, such as VIP business declines and recent softness in Perth. However, the prospect of cost savings and reduced gearing, along with indications of a recovering industry (with increased electronic game machine expenditure) provides valuation support as casinos may provide pockets of outperformance in a struggling discretionary space. Steady inbound tourism is also expected to drive growth in casino visitations and domestic revenue at attractive rates for Melbourne, as Perth appears to be recovering.

Do you find yourself tired throughout the day, struggling to concentrate or falling asleep at work? Does your mind race when your head hits the pillow or do you stir all night, waking groggy despite taking sleeping tablets? Don’t accept these feelings as “normal”. One simple infection can cause all of these symptoms plus irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, anger outbursts, poor concentration, sugar cravings, reduced ability to cope with stress and depression. These symptoms can have a sudden onset or gradually worsen over years or decades, and you may not have realised they are linked. A simple reduction in specific gut bacteria or an overgrowth of bacterial infection can stop you absorbing the nutrients you require to make the brain chemicals needed for sustained, restorative sleep.
The infection can be picked up from travelling overseas, working with children, regular contact with the sick or elderly and is more prevalent in FIFO workers. Easily transmittable, common infections contracted from overseas travel to popular island holiday destinations, or contact with someone recently overseas, has been detected in the gut through specialised testing. This infection has been shown to release a neuronal toxin, affecting the nervous system physically and mentally. Studies now available link the impact of gut infection on the brain. Being easily passed on, others in your home may also be affected. Often the first symptoms correlate with a stomach bug causing diarrhoea or vomiting. The countries it may be transmitted from, often have untreated water, with many people returning, infected and passing it on easily through schools, day care centres, hospitals or places of work. Thankfully these infections are easy to test for and respond well to treatments allowing your sleep, mood, health and happiness to get back on track. Don’t put up with the cycle of low energy, high stress and poor sleep any longer. Contact Advanced Wellness & Behavioural Centre for a free half hour consultation on 1800 699 355.

THE HANLON BROTHERS HEAD TO PEREGIAN ORIGINALS
TIMELESS STORY ON STAGE Don’t miss this bold new production. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
MUSICAL GREATS CONVERGE The Sunshine Statesmen Chorus is hosting a special concert to mark the 50th Anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast. The concert, led by chorus master Brian Martin, will feature a song specially created to mark the anniversary. Joining the chorus for a lively night of entertainment will be Blindside, a young quartet from Brisbane who recently placed third in the International Youth Quartet Competition held in July in Las Vegas, along with a host of local musicians. The Sunshine Statesmen Chorus 50th Anniversary of the Sunshine Coast concert will be held on August 12 at the BWMCA Hall in Buderim from 7pm. Tickets are $25 and $15 for under 18s and are available at the door.
One of Queensland’s finest soul, funk and reggae outfits, The Hanlon Brothers, will headline a stellar afternoon of entertainment at the next instalment of the Peregian Originals. The Burleigh Heads six-piece will be supported by the Coast’s own Andrew Kirwan with the support of five backing musicians, Sydney touring artist Billy Fox and Coast band Favourite Son. Peregian Originals will be held on Kingfisher Drive in Peregian Beach on August 13 from 1pm to 5pm.
FUN EXHIBITION CAPTURES THE SPIRIT OF THE COAST
An exhibition to mark the 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast is attracting attention at the University of the Sunshine Coast Art Gallery. It brings together objects, artworks and memorabilia from across the region dating
back to ancient times through to today. Exhibition curator Peter Connell says, “Some highlights in the exhibition include the Kabi Kabi Community possum skin cloak that was created for a cultural revitalisation project initiated by the State Library of Queensland last year, and I’m also quite fond of a hand-whittled hunting dog sculpture by Jim Hall loaned from the Peachester History Committee,” he says. Ma and Pa Bendall’s surfboards and items from local theme parks are also on display. From the Mountains to the Sea is on at the USC Art Gallery until August 19, 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday. Free.

icture this: Contemporary civilisation as we know it has collapsed. Amid the ruins and dust, a group of storytellers present Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar to warn of the perils of political corruption and greed. This is the setting for Jo Loth’s interpretation of the William Shakespeare classic – set in a post-apocalyptic, 21st century landscape. The head of Drama at the University of the Sunshine Coast says the work has once again become timely. “It’s about megalomaniac politicians, part of the struggle of power, people being easily swayed by politicians. It’s a play about a population feeling very uncertain and full of fear,” Loth tells My Weekly Preview. “After I decided to do Julius Caesar, I noticed so many performances of Julius Caesar are happening at the moment and that is due to the political landscape we find ourselves in. There is the fear of World War III… there are the dictators in Third World countries getting so much power and it all has a lot of resonance with the story of Julius Caesar and exploring how we handle these situations.”
Mary Eggleston (left) and Angel Kosch (right) But Loth says this is far from a doom and gloom production. “This adaptation puts a very unique spin on the play, we are absolutely not trying to be true to how it was done 400 years ago. We are trying to explore it through a new perspective and look at how it is relative to 2017.” Loth says a strong collaborative team has evolved around the production, which features some of the leading lights of Sunshine Coast theatre including Rainee Skinner, Mary Eggleston and Angel Kosch. Julius Caesar is on at The Events Centre, Caloundra on August 12 and 19 at 7.30pm and August 17 at 11am and 6.30pm. Tickets are $35 and $25.
RAW ROCK DUO ELKO FIELDS TO PLAY THE COAST
Brisbane duo Elko Fields have just released their self-titled debut EP on vinyl and to celebrate, they are hitting the road. A new song, Delores Part II, showcases the band’s energy with a combination of low-end
guitar tones and crooning female vocals courtesy of Kella Vee over a cataclysmic drum frenzy from Jhindu Lawrie. “We wanted to finish the record with an exercise in minimalism, something that showcased the raw power and physical impact of our sound… Just three notes, three riffs, slowly evolving into the final coda,” Vee says. “Jhindu is one of those freak-like drummers who will listen to a track, bring it to rehearsals and immediately put his animalistic stamp on it.” Elko Fields will be at the Surfair on August 13 at 3pm.

READER’S CORNER The Duchess
FRIDAY, AUGUST 11
IMAGE: HAYLEY CONDON
Author: Danielle Steel Publisher: Pan Macmillan RRP: $29.99 Reviewer: Carol Rawlins The story of Angelique Latham is one filled with intrigue and one I really enjoyed reading. The daughter of a Duke was raised by her father to take over their grand estate, but when he dies, her half-brothers brutally turn her out and go on to deny she even exists. Armed with a keen mind, remarkable beauty and the small amount of money her father gave to her before he died, she embarks on a journey to create a new existence for herself. From a life of privilege and stature, she becomes the owner of Le Boudoir, a place where rich and powerful men can come to indulge in their secret desires. But will this new life mean she can never reclaim her rightful place? It is well worth the read to find out.
WANDERINGS AT WAN’DIN’IN A celebration of raw materials, even those that are fragile and broken, is underway at the Wan’din’in Art Space with Eumundi artist Katrin Teron’s Wanderings exhibition. Terton’s mixed-media and photographic works continue her focus on the tenuous and transient elements of our environment, on transformation and impermanence. She is drawn to nature’s discards and other found objects. “Viewers might find the use of organic materials like snake skin sheds, human hair, disintegrating bones compelling and at the same time confronting as it evokes thoughts around our own vulnerability, life and death and how we feel about changes within and around us throughout time,” Terton says. Wanderings is on at the Wan’din’in Art Space in Eumundi behind the Visitor and Information Centre until August 13. Visit discovereumundi.com.

OUR 50TH YEAR
THE BIG PINEAPPLE PUTS DOWN ITS ROOTS The Big Pineapple opened on the Bruce Highway at Woombye, 46 years ago, on August 15, 1971. The late David Drane worked for Bill and Lyn Taylor, the original owners, from its construction until its sale to Queensland Press in 1985.
The Sunshine Plantation was popular from the start; the pineapple had to face the right way
ill Taylor was a generous man. Sometimes he would invite me into his office for coffee and scones, and tell me stories about how it all began and show me his photos. He had left his job in the finance section of the UN in New York and come to the Sunshine Coast with his wife Lyn, who had been a New York interior designer. They lived at Buderim and had bought the old pineapple farm at Woombye. Bill and Lyn had the dream of building a Big Pineapple and to be sure it would work, he had sat down near what was then the Bruce Highway and counted how many yellow (New South Wales) number plates went by, working out how many would visit. He approached the bigger business owners in Nambour – he called them the Nambour Mafia – with his ideas. They laughed and said they weren’t interested in
getting involved so Bill then approached the Committee of Direction of Fruit Marketing and the Golden Circle cannery. Both were impressed enough to invest. Bill and Lyn then began organising construction of the pineapple and took advice from various fibreglass firms in Brisbane. Everything had to be exactly right, right down to ensuring that the ripe side was facing the way they envisaged. After Des Scanlan built the Big Cow north of Nambour, Bill decided he did not like the name Big Pineapple and decided on Sunshine Plantation. He was very strict about the old name never being used again. I never saw Bill drive any other car than his old HR Holden that we could always hear coming to our workshop in Nambour. We knew it was him because it would rattle and creak over the driveway. One day when I arrived on site, he met me and was excited
because he had bought Lyn a new car. I was thinking maybe a new open-top Merc or something similar. She was classy and I could see her driving that, but when he opened the door, it was a Honda Accord. When he was building the first restaurant, the cheapest floor covering was seagrass matting, which he bought directly from Asia. It came wrapped in plaited grass so he decided to staple that to the walls. It saved on lining and gave a tropical effect. In the early hours of September 11, 1978, the Plantation was robbed and the thieves used oxyacetylene to try to cut the safe open. The walls quickly set alight and the tropical market and restaurant was completely destroyed. Bill rushed to rebuild and two months later, on December 19, he had a new Tropical Village up and running, but the restaurant would now be separate. Boxing Day was always one of the bigger days of the year for visitors and the shops were able to trade, but the restaurant had to be set up under a huge marquee in the parking lot. After the Sunshine Plantation was sold the new owners insisted on very different materials and styles. It was sad to see it slowly go backwards after that. The rusted tram tracks covered in weeds made me think that Bill and Lyn would be turning in their graves. Their attention to cleanliness and appearance was beyond reproach. They were good days. The 16 metre Big Pineapple was heritage listed in March 2009. Sunshine Plantation grew in popularity from 250,000 visitors in 1972 to more than 1 million in 1980. In 1990 the Bruce Highway was realigned and the Big Pineapple was bypassed.

The Kawana Canals in January 1969
Work on the first canal development at Kawana commenced on August 18, 1967. Managing Director of Kawana Estates, Noel ‘Mr Kawana’ Burns, famously said, “the best land for canals is swamp”.
DID YOU KNOW? • The Education Department in 1947 finalised subsidised transport for school children on Tanawha Road. It meant 20 children were saved a four-mile (6.5km) walk. The 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast was celebrated on August 1, 2017. To celebrate the momentous occasion, My Weekly Preview will each week take a look into our region’s past.

ore than 300 people will come together on August 12 to celebrate the 19th annual Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network’s Business Woman’s Awards Night Gala.

Who inspires you? The phenomenal team I work with inspire me daily. They are a diverse group of Coast locals who are so passionate. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Just focus on the next step. Don’t be daunted by the big picture and what it will take to get where you want to go. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve had to overcome? As my business has grown rapidly, the demands on my time have become greater in terms of serving my clients, mentoring my team and striving to be a great wife/mum. I’ve become good at delegating and saying no, so I can say yes to things that matter.

In addition, one finalist will be named the 2017 Outstanding Business Woman of the Year – a crown, which last year, was presented to Shine Beauty’s Tania Turner. My Weekly Preview wishes all the finalists the best of luck.

Who inspires you? Ordinary people who overcome the odds and people going through challenges who still find a way to give back and be positive. My biggest inspiration is my amazing husband and two children who inspire me every day. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Go for it. Don’t wait for the right time. Get a business coach if you’re not business-minded. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve ever had to overcome? Launching my business the same month we lost all of our money in a financial collapse. I thought it was the universe saying give up. It’s not been as easy as I imagined, but I’m grateful I did not give up.

She has so much energy and drive for life at 75 and still runs her own business, organises community meetings and ladies groups as well as volunteering every week. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Make a start somewhere and see where it will lead you, but don’t wait till you have everything perfect to start. Choose something that excites you and makes you wake up with a smile on your face, as that will keep you going when challenges come along. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? Building and growing a salon team while having our children and also going through losing my dad to cancer. With a great team around you, you can get through anything.

Attitude, people, relationships, financial management and systems. Who inspires you? My friends, family and other successful business owners. My dad has been one of my biggest inspirations.

Trust your gut, listen to your instincts and don’t be swayed by the opinions of others if they don’t align with your own. Gender isn’t an issue. It’s your attitude and hard work that matters in the end. What’s the best advice you have ever received? FTI (failure to implement), this simple truth can make or break a business. I try to live by this mantra in my business. You can have the best ideas in the world but if you don’t put them into action, and test and measure them, they will fail.

I started my business in Noosaville five years ago in a side laneway with no shop frontage and only $3000 in the bank. I have grown to two salons, a team of nine and my own product range called Eden&Tilly Organic Haircare. What’s the best advice you have ever received? To aim for the moon and if you hit the stars, that’s OK. What’s the best thing about your job? Every day is different in a hair salon. I create, talk, inspire, help women to feel amazing.

Karen says the best advice she has received is that consistent positive action creates huge momentum. Name the key factors for your success: A passion for helping people achieve their goals, consistency, commitment, organisation and well-developed systems. Who inspires you? I admire Richard Branson. He seems full of life, enthusiasm and adventure. He is incredibly successful. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Focus on the things that make you money. It can be easy to get caught up in the fun of starting a business, but you need to be focused on what matters – customers, delivering good services/products and your cashflow. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? Getting a business up and running from the ground up. We started the business fully self-funded and it was the sole income for our family of four. There was a lot of pressure to make it work and I really had to work hard to get customers. What’s the best thing about your job? Getting to buy amazing properties each week and the excitement from our buyers when we call to say they’ve bought a house.
For Helen, ordinary people who do extraordinary things inspire her. Name the key factors for your success: Networking and building a community, creating a solution that positively impacts our environment and our society. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Find something you are passionate about, as this passion will help when times are tough. Then find a tribe of other women who you can share your journey with, who will support and comfort you and celebrate your wins with you. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? To bring my daughter home from the hospital after a lengthy stay when she was born. Seven weeks later I was able to place her in her bed. Now, at 14, she is flourishing. What’s the best advice you have ever received? Just do it. It’s about having a go and not letting procrastination get in the way. It’s about doing, not talking. What’s the best thing about your job? The connections I make as I travel this journey. The people I meet and the personal stories I have the privilege to hear. Connections that bring like-minded people together to make our world a better place.

Nanette says the best advice she has received is to never give up on your dreams. Name the key factors for your success: Innovation is the key to my business model as innovation represents new technology, new industry education and creating new skills. Who inspires you? Anne-Sophie, a well known eco-conscious hairdresser who began researching due to her own allergies. She then developed and launched her highly successful product range, Zenz Organic. She inspired me with her strength. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? My first hurdle was to find the most accurate and current knowledge based on relevant safe and green hairdressing practices in Australia and overseas. My second hurdle was to overcome my lack of confidence due to my dyslexia. What is the best thing about your job? Being an eco-conscious hairdresser is fulfilling. I am able to educate my team and see them grow in their knowledge to be able to work in a certified green salon. I love to succeed when I am rewarded by the enjoyment that I bring to other people’s lives by the positive impact I have, particularly with women by empowering through health.

A solid business plan, innovation, vision and purpose are the major factors that contribute to Lindsey’s success. Who inspires you? The creator of the Harry Potter franchise, J.K. Rowling. With 450 million books sold and $7.7 billion in box office sales for the films, these statistics are testament to her persistence and talent. She achieved all of this in the face of poverty, divorce, depression and rejection letters from publishers. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Build a strong sense of vision, self-belief and persistence. These qualities are essential to creating successful results. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? The biggest challenge was in the early stages of setting up the business and getting our three company founders to work together effectively. Our working relationships started showing signs of fracture, so I sought the help of a Sunshine Coast business, Aus Identities who specialise in identifying innate personality traits, understanding behavioural responses and recognising the preferred working style. What’s the best advice you have ever received? The best advice I have received was by my life coach, Lisa Bowen – dream big and make decisions to achieve any goal.
Motivation, clear vision, an implementation plan and sheer persistence are the key factors Anne attributes her success. Who inspires you? People who overcome adversity and use it as a catalyst for positive change to motivate, educate and help others, especially in business. My mum. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Believe in yourself. Be authentic and shine your passion. Walk your talk, have a strong support network. Invest time in personal development to upskill yourself. Be a life-long learner and focus on how your business can best help people. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? When my mum was terminally ill, I provided palliative care and had to put the brakes on my business to meet our family’s needs. This traumatic experience helped me reflect on my business model at that time and adapt to take the business in a more sustainable direction. What’s the best advice you have ever received? Start with the end in mind. Having clarity about what I want to achieve, a strong desire to make it a reality and taking consistent action to manifest it. Keeping my ‘why’ in mind is vital.
Michele says working with committed organisations who are trying to help vulnerable community members is the best thing about her job. Name the key factors for your success: Passion about what I do and being able to convey that passion to others so that they believe in what I do. Commitment to what I do and social justice – a desire to focus on work that helps make a difference in people’s lives and to be an advocate for people who have no voice. Who inspires you? My husband as he is my best friend, a person who will help build me up when I feel down, who has unwavering belief in me and what I do. [A person] who encourages me to follow my dreams, who helps guide me when I feel a bit adrift and shares my passion and commitment. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Believe in yourself and no matter the obstacles, turn those obstacles into opportunities. And as importantly, have fun. What’s the best advice you have ever received? Be a river.

Tanya says consistency, professionalism and innovation are the key factors to her success. Who inspires you? Biz Stone author of Things a Little Bird Told Me. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Find something you’re passionate about. The world needs more passionate people. When you find that thing, let your passion overflow, keep doing it, perfect it. Accept that it won’t be easy, be positive about the knocks that life sends and learn from them. Never give up, and don’t be afraid to review and change direction when required. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? Learning to work independently when I started the company was my biggest challenge. I went from being part of a team of staff to being solely responsible for all details of my dream, my company. It was my biggest challenge and my greatest achievement all in one. What’s the best advice you have ever received? Be perfectly you. It was advice from my mother. Authenticity in my opinion is a key ingredient in a successful business. You are the best at being yourself and being authentic will attract your clientele.

These people have encouraged me to understand the importance of maintaining a positive mindset and being solution focused. Also, a very supportive husband. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? I think as women we feel we need to have everything perfect before we start. Women should back themselves more often. Start where you stand and just go for it. You have everything you need within you to make a business a success. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? When I went to work for Virgin in South Africa I was part of a new executive team who had been put in place to improve the business and turn it into a Virgin company. This company had previously been led by what can only be described as gangsters. We worked hard to improve the culture. What’s the best advice you have ever received? Wherever you go, make yourself useful. It’s not the most inspirational statement, but it has truly defined my success.

Ray White Commercial North Coast Central
Bloomhill Cancer Care Mervat says the best advice she has received is to understand that individuals have a history that you may not know about. Name the key factors for your success: Leave your ego at the door, show compassion, encourage others to be the best they can be and listen to your intuition. Who inspires you? I am inspired daily by the courage and conviction of our clients who are faced with challenges and continually champion the essence of what humanity is about. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Surround yourself with passionate and encouraging people who don’t mind being a sounding board. Always be ready for challenges as they come your way, as they are the best character building exercises you will come across. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? The loss of my husband to cancer was a challenge that was beyond measure. This has shaped my identity, changed my outlook on life and I draw from this experience every day. What’s the best thing about your job? I get to work with some amazing people who so generously give so much of themselves to our cause.
Tenacity, drive and a desire to make a difference are the factors Jennifer attributes her success to. Who inspires you? Linda Delamotte, Roz White and Debbie Battaglini-Clarke. All are truly beautiful ladies who are successful, driven and give back more than anyone I know. They are supportive of other women, even when they have more on their respective plates than many other people. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Surround yourself with believers and people who are not afraid to let you also have the occasional home truth between the eyes when you need it. The world is changing so fast so don’t become outdated by hanging on to the past. Stay up to date and relevant and be prepared to shed past learnings if they no longer apply. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? Deciding to move from Sydney in 2010 and start completely fresh on the Sunshine Coast knowing only my parents and one other family. Having to build new networks from scratch is daunting, but it’s a decision that I have not regretted for a moment and could not see myself living anywhere else.
MICHELLE WINSER Destiny Rescue
Michelle says she loves everything about her job, from rescuing children to working on community projects. Name the key factors for your success? My relational skills. I am a good listener and good at engaging with people. My leadership style is one that empowers people. Feeling privileged in having found my calling and not just working in a job, but one that empowers me to be bold and courageous and to experience things first hand. Who inspires you? The children we rescue. Seeing the horrible and gruesome situations that these children have been brought out of and then watching them restore, grow and go on to have a beautiful life inspires me to no end. Their courage and determination humbles me. What advice would you give other woman starting out in business? Just do it. Women are their own harshest critics. You don’t have to be book smart to get ahead. Life experience counts for a lot, so does being relational and being persistent. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? My own self-confidence. I used to measure intelligence by academic achievements. I had to learn to push through my fear and extend myself beyond my comfort zone.

Katie’s Ark Luxury Pet Retreat
Bacchi Designs Erin says the three key factors for her success are her passion, setting goals and perseverance. Who inspires you? I’m inspired by people who visualise their dream life and have done everything in their power to make it a reality. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Make a plan, set achievable goals and never give up. Power through the hurdles, you’ll forever be learning something new that will shape yourself and your business. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? I had designed a document for a local business, after the project was complete the client decided they no longer needed the document and that they weren’t going to pay for it. Since then I’ve always charged a 50 per cent deposit up front for my services. What’s the best advice you have ever received? “Look around at the top people and realise that no one is smarter than you and no one is better than you. If people are ahead of you today, it is because they are doing things differently from you. And whatever anyone else has done, you can do as well, if you just learn how.” – Brian Tracy
For an animal lover, Katie has the ideal job. She says working from home and being her own boss are definite advantages. Name the key factors for your success? Myself, being driven and passionate. Who inspires you? I am fortunate to have some strong powerful females in my life. Lindy Kelly is not only a good friend, but is also a mentor to me. And my mother, who has shown me nothing will hold you back if you work hard and smart. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Just give it a go, what do you really have to lose? If it doesn’t work out, I believe you have gained so much more from giving it a try and you know what to do differently next time. But most of all don’t give up, it’s tough and not for the weak. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? This is a hard one because at the time whatever is challenging you [makes it feel as though] there is no light at the end of the tunnel. But you keep fighting on and you make it happen. What’s the best advice you have ever received? If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you’re not sure you can do it, say yes. Learn how to do it later.
ANG MANSEY Kuluin Mufflers A genuine passion for the car industry, professional customer service and standing out from the crowd are key to her success in business, Ang says. Who inspires you? A true role model of mine and someone I look up and aspire to would be Lisa Rowe from Wishlist. Not only is she an outstanding business woman in her own right, an advocate for children and a loving mother and partner, but she is someone who makes such a significant difference to the community. She inspires me to dream big and emulate her proactive approach and compassionate nature. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Whichever field of business you enter, knowing your target audience and consumer is key. Be bold and confident in your pursuits and don’t be afraid to take risks. What is the biggest challenge you have overcome? Being a wife and mother of four sons meant learning to juggle the balance of running a business and meeting the needs of my family. Being a full-time carer to my six-yearold, who has complex medical and health issues and has undergone 23 surgical procedures, meant I needed to find a way to nurse my son while managing my business.

Home Care Assistance Sunshine Coast
Youi Insurance Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and motivational speaker Mel Robbins are the women who inspire Jaymee. Name the key factors for your success? My passion, motivation and commitment. I am a big believer in loving what you do, be passionate and put in 110 per cent or don’t do it at all. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? Believe in yourself and never stop growing. Having self-belief and self-confidence is a huge factor of your success. Know your strengths and always continue to work on your opportunities to be the best you can be. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? Learning to look after myself and my own wellbeing so I can be effective at work and at home. I can’t help the people I care about, if I am not looking after myself. One of the key things I have found that works for me is compartmentalising, being able to break down any problem and look at it in small pieces. What’s the best advice you have ever received? The best advice I have ever received is ‘feel the fear, and do it anyway’. I started my career in leadership at the age of 19, managing a sales team of 10 people.
One. Chew. Three. Elisa puts the success of her business down to brand equity. Name the factors for your success? I’m a marketer, so I have to say marketing and branding. Knowing your customers and what make them tick, as well as knowing your why – essentially what you do, how you do it and why you do it. While I don’t think passion alone can run a successful business, you definitely can’t run a successful business unless you are passionate. Who inspires you? Family and friends. From my mum and dad who roll up their sleeves whatever chance they get, to the besties who are there to dish out the real advice, and the hubby and kids who just motivate me every day to be better and do better. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? I built ONE.CHEW.THREE from the ground up. The one thing I underestimated was the amount of work involved and it really can be consuming. While attention to detail is important, it’s also important to recognise when you’re going that step too far and no longer adding the value you need from what you’re doing and you need to move on. What’s the best advice you have ever received? The one thing I live by in business is run your own race.
Kendall is inspired by her young children and says children have a way of putting everything into perspective. Name the key factors for your success? Hard work, passion and customer service. Who inspires you? My children – Coty, eight, Rafe, six, JJ, four and Tula, almost two. Kids have a way of putting everything into perspective and filling the days with joy and colour and fun. Knowing I am coming home to amazing little people puts a positive spin on any day. What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? The only limits we have are those we put on ourselves. Make decisions that are right for you and those you love. Become involved in the business community and meet amazing women who become a support network. What’s the best advice you have ever received? Focus on the clients and the money takes care of itself. If you care about the service you provide, then everything else will fall into place. Another great piece of advice I received in the early days is when there is so much to do, to think about, and it seems overwhelming – just focus on what is the next right thing.

AN IRONIC PRETTINESS Colour trend: Millennial pink We’ve been crushing on pink for some time now, and we know that we are not alone. First there was rose, then it was blush and now we’ve moved on to a colour that is trending worldwide – millennial pink. It’s been compared to Pantone’s 2016 Colour of the Year, Rose Quartz, and likened to a blend of apricot, salmon and grapefruit. Confused? Don’t be, instead, openly accept this colour into your home. The MWP team love this hue, which is reminiscent of vintage-influenced pinks.

LANDSCAPING TIP Before embarking on landscaping projects, talk to an expert about what plants work for the right space. For example, you should avoid overhanging trees in pool landscaping as they will shed leaves into the water. Also, be mindful not to plant vegetation too close to a pool fence as it can be a safety hazard – children can see this as an opportunity to climb over the fence.

Inexperienced gardeners can struggle when it comes to pairing the right types of flowers and plants, but the answer could be as simple as turning to the colour wheel. So, what is the colour wheel? The illustration simply organises colours into a circle showing the relationships between primary, secondary and tertiary colours.
When it comes to gardening, combining complementary colours is a smart planning tool. Complementary colours are those located opposite each other on the wheel. For example, red and green work well together.

WHAT TO PLANT AROUND THE POOL
ummer gardens are made in winter. With warmer weather and longer days on the way, we all look forward to spending as much time as we can in our outdoor living spaces. To get the most out of your space, start preparing now. When it comes to planting around pools, decks and outdoor entertaining areas, there are few things to consider.
have. If your pool is salt water or chlorine, you will need to account for any potential overflow areas. Decks and paving can change the drainage of areas, or even create water traps which can limit how well an area drains water. If you can’t overcome these problems, then you may need to adapt your plant choices – there are plenty of plants that can thrive in these conditions, you just need to know they are a problem in the first place.
1. MESSY LEAVES AND FLOWERS
Marjorie Van Roy is a horticulturist 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.
Although colour looks fantastic, there are plenty of ways to achieve this that don’t have to mean lots of extra work in summer. High flowering plants can lead to more pool cleaning or even staining on decks, so try to choose positions that minimise the mess. Remember, even different shades of green create great contrast and can be more dramatic than flowers. There are some great foliage plants that can be used including; crotons, cordylines, nandina species, alternanthera Little Ruby or melaleuca Little Red, which are all great in sunny positions, or for shadier spots consider calathea, ctenanthe, philodendron species, variegated iris or bromeliads.
2. CHECK OUT WHAT’S BELOW When planting around pools and near decks, it always pays to understand the roots of the plants you want to use. Larger trees have larger roots, so make sure you have used these in areas which don’t create any risk. A very basic guideline for trees is to remember that the width of the canopy directly relates to the width of the root system below. Small, shallow or narrow garden beds can be tough to plant, especially when it may affect the structural elements in your yard. Don’t be tempted to plant what will look good, or create privacy just in the short term – as these plants will grow and may cause a lot more pain in the long term. There are many creative ways to use plants in narrow spaces. Consider using climbing plants, vertical wall gardens or even large raised containers to help overcomes these issues.
4. CHOSE PLANTS THAT SUIT HOW YOU PLAN TO USE YOUR SPACE The most common mistake we see is people choosing plants that just aren’t suited to how they treat their outdoor space. Decide what you want to achieve and ensure this is possible with the space you have. Target important areas such as screening or privacy plantings or areas that may cool or shade the most frequently used spaces. Also, consider maintenance requirements for your new space, including the suitability of watering systems as well as the growth rates of the chosen plants. Remember every space is different, so take the time to examine your area and work out want you want to achieve and what your space will allow you to do. Most importantly, start work now, don’t wait until the heat of summer has arrived. Happy gardening.
3. WATER, WATER, WATER Certainly we need to be able to water our gardens to sustain the chosen plants, but make sure to also account for the effect that a pool or deck may

HONDA BACK IN FORM The Japanese automotive brand has been off its game for some time, but the new Civic has brought the giant back to the game. Words: Peter Atkinson, AAP.
T’S been a long wait, but finally Honda appears to be getting its mojo back. Once the prince of Japanese automotive brands, it’s fair to say Honda has been off its game for some time now – dating all the way back to the Global Financial Crisis precisely a decade ago. That event seemed to knock the wind out of Honda’s sails (and sales) and stalled or delayed much of its model development. The result has been a series of model launches that have failed to match the very high standards of quality and innovation that
we’d come to expect from Honda. But the hints of a Honda revival have been growing with the release of impressive models like the all-new Honda Civic. A sharply-designed, impressively packaged Civic sedan arrived last year and now, the launch of an all-new hatchback version of the Civic has confirmed that Honda is back on track. The Civic unmistakably bears the same design DNA as the new HR-V. Interior styling, too, is modern and easily navigated, with a seven-inch
touchscreen at the heart of the cabin management. Apple Carplay, Android Auto and Bluetooth are part of that arrangement, along with push-button start, electric park brake and a full suite of electronic safety features standard across the range. Moving up the range, additional driver assistance such as lane-departure warning, collision mitigation, road departure mitigation, lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control become part of the package. Of course, edgy styling and a cool looking cockpit is one thing. But it’s the mechanics that most impressed us about this tenth-generation Civic hatch. In particular, the turbocharged, 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine, matched by an equally impressive, smooth-shifting constantly variable transmission. The Civic will be offered in five trim levels – and with two engines including a normally-aspirated 1.8-litre four – but the turbo is undoubtedly the pick. It represents something of a change of direction for Honda. The new turbo powerplant is an impressive device, extracting a useful and accessible 127 kilowatts and 220Nm from its relatively modest 1.5 litres of capacity. That, in turn, when combined with the notoriously-frugal CVT transmission, allows the Civic to post average combined fuel consumption of just 6.1L/100km. That’s a winning combination and one we
can expect to see replicated in other Honda models moving forward. Dynamically, the new Civic’s credentials are obvious from the moment you point it at a corner for the first time. It feels immensely solid, beautifully balanced and eager for action – in the mould we had come to expect from Honda models.
HONDA CIVIC HATCH HOW BIG? For a compact-sized hatch it offers grown-up interior space, with a roomy, airy cabin and plenty of stretch room in the back. The cargo space also makes the most of the hatchback format with 414 litres of storage space. HOW FAST? While the upcoming Civic Type R will provide the performance benchmark for this car, even the conventional models are impressively quick and responsive.
HOW THIRSTY? With the efficient turbocharged 1.5-litre engine and the fuel-saving CVT transmission, you can expect 6.1L/100km which is impressive. HOW MUCH? Civic prices will range from $23,390 to the mid-$30s, which puts it right in the sweet spot for this competitive market segment. It probably doesn’t quite match the appeal of the market-leading Mazda3 but it certainly warrants a look at this price.

50 YEARS IN REAL ESTATE AND STILL GOING STRONG Jean Hamer is a trailblazer for female real estate agents on the Sunshine Coast. As she celebrates 50 years in the business, she reflects on how the local property market has changed and shares the personal philosophy that has underpinned her successful career. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
eing an early pioneer for women in the real estate industry, Jean Hamer has spent the past five decades enjoying a busy career. Jean was living at the Gold Coast caring for her two young daughters, Michelle and Donna, when her husband Bill came home from building at Kawana and said, “You’ll have to learn to drive, you are going back to work – I’ve bought a real estate office”. So began a totally new life. As Jean celebrates the 50th year of her career, the 73-year-old has been told by her daughters that it’s time to retire, but she is determined to continue with her real estate passion for some time yet. Jean was the first woman to hold the positions of Real Estate Institute Queensland Sunshine Coast branch chair and the QLD REIQ Board president after being on the board for many years, and was heavily involved in setting up the REIQ’s property management chapter. She was appointed to the State Government Auctioneers and Agents Committee, which she served on for many years. “When I first came here, Kawana had a block of flats, a shop and no more than half a dozen houses. The tallest building along Mooloolaba was Milwyn, three storeys high. I came in the same year the area was named the ‘Sunshine Coast’ and have seen and been involved with its evolution since then,” she says. With no experience in the industry, the Hamers took over an agency where Huntington now stands in Boolarong Crescent, Alexandra Headland, changing the name to Richardson Hamer Real Estate. Jean handled the rentals, which, in the days before the name ‘property management’ existed, were mainly holiday units. She has the old ledger showing the brand new Ela Dorina units at Alexandra Headland, rented for $40 per week off season and $70 at Christmas, plus cleaning. You also had to bring your own linen and cutlery along and hired a TV if you wanted one, paying to erect the aerial. Jean and Bill divorced in 1977 and she took over the business and rebranded from Bill Hamer Realty to Jean Hamer Real Estate in 1978. “It was unknown for a woman to own a real estate business or to be a real estate salesperson. At that time, there were no other female real estate agents on the Sunshine Coast,” she says. Jean recalls the days of manual typewriters, carbon copies to provide triplicate contracts, with handwritten ledgers, journals and cash books. With no

The Century 21 sales team in the 1990s with Jean Hamer second from the right in the back row fax machines or emails, there was many a road trip to deliver contracts. Her agency was the first on the Coast to have two-way radios in agents’ cars. Later they progressed to electric typewriters, but frequent blackouts interrupted her work, so when the power returned during the night, she would have to go back to the office to complete the contracts. This was the case when Jean and another agent were amalgamating the site Osprey stands on today. It consisted of a block of flats on The Esplanade and four old houses going up Buderim Road. Technology obviously has improved the efficiency of the industry. From one computer half the size of a room, to every desk with a computer. Every salesperson today has the latest mobile phone and receives their emails on it too. Jean says she is astounded at how much the region has grown in the past 50 years – along with property prices. “I have an old ledger from those days and in 1970 I sold a block of land in Centenary Crescent in Maroochydore for $1600. That land is now worth $500,000. A block in Oloway Crescent sold for $1050 and a house at 266 Alexandra Parade sold to George Chaplin for $34,000. It was a lovely home and some years later he demolished it and built The Headlands units,” she says. “About this time, we purchased land at 134 Alexandra Parade, for $6000 and built
“It was unknown for a woman to own a real estate business or to be a real estate salesperson” our office on it. I ultimately developed that into Quontro units where I lived on the top floor with my office at ground level. One of the units has just resold for over $1 million. “In the mid-1980s, Trevor Love, one of my salespeople, sold the land located up Hobbs Road between Maroochydore and Buderim and Tyrone Heights was
subdivided. Blocks sold for between $11,000 and $14,000. We keep getting more noughts.” Although her office locations have shifted from Alexandra Headland to Mooloolaba, and she also operated under a number of franchises, from Richardson and Wrench and then Century 21 and now at First National Mooloolaba, where Jean works with experienced agent Suzanne Annabel, the one thing that has remained constant for Jean is her love of the industry and working with people. “I am still selling well and winning First National Silver Awards and keeping pace with the rest of the top salespeople, it’s all a matter of understanding and caring for people,” she says. “I believe in being totally honest at all times – I don’t have a good enough memory to tell lies – and I have only ever aligned myself with others who have the same philosophy.” Hamer says with the exception of the GFC, when homes plummeted as much as 20 per cent on the Coast and she went through the toughest time in her career, the region’s property market has always been fairly steady. For many years, we had cycles where property would double every seven to 10 years, but we’ve never experienced the huge highs and equally huge drops the Gold Coast has,” she says. “At one stage in the late 90s, some property doubled in 18 months, which was horrendous, you just didn’t know what to expect. However right now we have quite an unusual market difficulty, with a huge challenge to find properties to sell to well cashed-up buyers. “We have a lot of willing buyers out there, but owners are hanging on tight. Let’s hope they don’t leave it too long and then find they cannot get the price they could get if they were to sell today.” With the Maroochydore CBD development, the Mooloolaba Place Making project, the new hospital precinct plus the airport upgrade and other game-changer projects coming to fruition across the Coast, Jean predicts property prices will continue to enjoy an upward trend.
To celebrate reaching her 50th anniversary, Jean is looking forward to a gathering with many past employees and long-term clients and friends at Alexandra Headland on August 17. For more information, email Jean at email@example.com.

If your agent suggests you save money on a print campaign.
THINK AGAIN MARKETING MATTERS! I recently took on a property that had been on the market for 90 days, limited inspections, no bids at auction and the highest offer was $450K. The previous agent advised against a print media campaign. Our first half page ad in MWP produced 51 people at the first open home and a further 17 inspections over the next 4 days resulting in several offers above the $529,000 asking price. An agent who suggests you “save a few hundred dollars on marketing” may cost you TENS of thousands. MWP delivers again! Jason Stock Remax Property Sales

with MWP’s man in the water
Reef Hazelwood scored a tight second place in the US Open Juniors missing out by half a point. Not too bad for the young Sunshine Coast kid. I’ll be surprised if he is not on the tour soon. Tahiti will be about to start and I am yet to see the forecast, but let’s hope it is nail biting and Owen Wright or Julian step up. Locally, the waves look fairly ordinary so either get on the golf course or in the garden and some score brownie points. August has been so warm it beggars belief – summer is going to be interesting.

TAURUS APR 21-MAY 21
GEMINI MAY 22-JUN 21
With Mercury now in retrograde motion (until September 5) proceed carefully with a complicated professional project this week. If you are too hasty (or too stubborn) then you’ll experience communication problems with a colleague, client or customer.
Expect some dramas this week, as Pluto stirs up old grievances with a friend or relative. By all means use your diplomatic talents to help find solutions but, if you sit back and let others make decisions, then you’ll just feel paralysed and powerless.
Are you feeling hemmed in at home? This week’s stars favour cleaning, de-cluttering and/or extending your present living space so it’s more open. With Mercury (your power planet) now reversing through your home zone, expect some domestic dramas.

Avoid getting drawn into a pointless power struggle with a loved one on Tuesday. With Mercury now in retrograde mode (until September 5) expect some frustrating disruptions and delays involving commerce, cars, computers, travel or phones.
With the fiery sun and Mars both charging through your sign, it’s time for larger-than-life Leos to let your hair down, express yourself and indulge your senses. Be inspired by movie star Mae West: “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.”
Are work or school worries on your mind? Does a relationship with a colleague or close friend feel as if it’s going backwards? Mercury (your patron planet) is now reversing through your sign. So, with persistence and patience, you can turn things around.
LIBRA SEP 24-OCT 23
SCORPIO OCT 24-NOV 22
SAGITTARIUS NOV 23-DEC 21
This week there may be conflict between domestic and professional responsibilities. You’re keen to plunge into a personal project but make sure you do your homework first. Otherwise there’ll be major mix-ups and general mayhem.
Tuesday’s tempestuous stars highlight your inclination to jealous, possessive or overbearing behaviour. It’s time to loosen your intense grip on a loved one Scorpio! Otherwise you’ll just drive them away with your dramatic and demanding behaviour.
Be careful your spontaneous spirit doesn’t land you in unexpected trouble! You’re keen to communicate but, if you rush in and say the first thing on your mind (especially at work) then you could find yourself regretting your haste.
CAPRICORN DEC 22-JAN 20
AQUARIUS JAN 21-FEB 19
PISCES FEB 20-MAR 20
Does the gap between your ambitious dreams and your daily reality seem to be incredibly wide at the moment? Gradual progress is being made behind the scenes. So you need to slow down, calm down, and be a super patient Capricorn.
Mercury is retrograde until September 5. So expect communication chaos, relationship rumbles and/or financial frustrations over the next few weeks. It’s also a time when unresolved issues from the past could be dredged up all over again.
Expect some communication mayhem over the next few weeks, as Mercury reverses through your relationship zone. Loved ones will certainly test your patience this week. If you are firm and flexible then you’ll be able to navigate your way through.

THE LAST WORD
BOOKS TO CHERISH Richard O’Leary bears his soul by revealing what’s on his bookshelf.
while ago I wrote a story that included a reference to what books lay on my bedside table, which probably revealed a little about where my head was at that given point in time. I was reminded of this while reading a story that claimed bookshelves are coming back to a room near you as more people use them as props for a ‘shelfie’ – a photo of one’s library. It got me thinking about what your bookshelf does reveal about you – does it reveal who you are? Or, who you would like people to think you are? As many of you would know, I recently moved house so I had to pare down my first editions and paperbacks to a couple of shelves on a bookcase,
“It got me thinking about what your bookshelf does reveal about you – does it reveal who you are?”
PHOTO OF THE WEEK
which I share with my wife (sharing a shelf with a partner is worth a column in itself, but I’ll leave that for another day) – which means for the first time in years I’ve had to really narrow down what publications are most important to me. At first glance my bookshelf may look like a mishmash of genres and styles, but closer inspection reveals a couple of broad categories, which I claim make some sort of sense. The top shelf is aspirational, the second is inspirational, the third is dysfunctional and the bottom tier is what I have left for my wife and I make no attempt to explain her collection at all. Let me explain. At the pinnacle of my bookshelf you’ll find a bunch of books about how to become a writer: Philip Roth’s Reading Myself and Others,

Submit your photo (1MB min, 5MB max image size) by Friday, for the following week’s publication. firstname.lastname@example.org
Writing the Breakout Novel by Donald Maass, and Stephen King’s On Writing – A Memoir on the Craft – and many others. To save you a lot of time, I’ll distil the hundreds of thousands of words into a few drops of advice – it’s all about perspiration, persistence and having something to say. Now if you tilt your head slightly, you’ll see on the second row all the books that inspire me. These are the books I would want to take with me on the proverbial desert island: Steinbeck’s haunting Of Mice and Men, Cormac McCarthy’s masterpiece Blood Meridian, To Kill a Mockingbird, my favourite history book AJP Taylor’s The Origins of the Second World War and my only collection of short stories, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver. The relatively coherent narrative provided by the top two shelves gives way to random ramblings as you get closer to the floor, as cook books share space with novels, a dictionary, a guide to practical Balinese and a recent edition of the New Philosopher. What books are on your bookshelf, and which title could you not do without? Let me know at email@example.com. Or even better, send me a shelfie.
