FROM THE EDITOR

T

his week’s feature story was a difficult one to write. As the mother of a three-year-old, it struck an emotional chord. The statistics stayed with me for days: a child is trafficked every 26 seconds. You don’t need to be a parent for this story to hit you in the heart. It’s an issue that affects millions of people around the world. It’s almost too big to comprehend. There is no ignoring that modern slavery exists. Child trafficking and exploitation is not a pleasant topic and, as Destiny Rescue’s Michelle Winser says, it’s “not palatable” for the dinner table. But when the average cost to buy a human life is $90, it’s time to start the conversation. This is exactly what Sunshine Coast not-forprofit organisation Destiny Rescue is doing. To date they have assisted in the rescue of 2000 children and they have no plans to slow down. You can read more about this human rights plight and how you can help, on page 14. On a lighter note, this week’s edition is jampacked with stories sure to educate, entertain and kickstart your weekend. We were lucky enough to secure an interview with superstar Ronan Keating, who reckons the Sunshine Coast is incredible. Keating is heading our way later this month to headline the Caloundra Music Festival. We can’t wait! Until next week, take care.

QUICK CHAT

PRIDE AND JOY Where on the Sunshine Coast do you live? In a very boring place called Cooroy. We have been here for about five years. It’s a nice and quiet little town but as with little towns, there isn’t really that much to do. But that’s what Facebook is for!

they wouldn’t put up the rainbow flag to support IDAHOT day, an international day against homophobia. There are no LGBTI+ groups, meetings or even prides on the Sunshine Coast. That’s partly why the rainbow formal is so exciting. It’s here!

What are you currently working on? I am working on the organisation I started earlier this year, SORA (Supporters of Rainbow Adolescents). I am growing the website, helping out teenagers and blogging about my views and day-to-day life. I am also helping organise a rainbow formal for grade 10 to 12 students to be held at the University of the Sunshine Coast on October 14.

Best day in your life? There are a couple, but my top pick would have to be going to my first real pride event, a Brisbane rally for marriage equality. There were rainbows everywhere, people were laughing and mingling, the vast majority of the people were LGBTI+ and the air was electric when we started the march.

Your family includes… An annoying little brother, a chatterbox of a little sister, an amazing mum and dad and two fluffy puppies. First car? I couldn’t tell you the difference between a Ford and a Honda, so even if I did have a car, I could only tell you what colour it was. Favourite book? Why must you ask me impossible questions? The Skulduggery Pleasant series would have to be my favourite set of books.

Samuel Bouzanquet

advocate

BIO Year 10 student Samuel Bouzanquet has started an organisation to help LGBTI+ youth and has helped organise a rainbow formal for LGBTI+ teenagers. He is a vocal activist in equality for all LGBTI+ people and says he loves books, rainbows, games, music and dancing. “My mum always complains about me twirling around the kitchen while I’m putting away dishes and my sister always complains about my ‘bad’ music taste.”

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? The day I realised that most parents are not like mine, and that many are sadly unaccepting of their LGBTI+ children. That was when I realised that the world is not nearly as accepting of the LGBTI+ community as we are all brought to believe and that we still have a long way to go. This was what started my activism and founding of SORA, because teenagers need support.

“Be strong, because you never know who you are inspiring. You are in charge of how your day goes”

Your greatest regret? Having not gone to any Brisbane pride events sooner, and only learning about them this year.

What are you reading now? Just finished reading the Now I Rise, which is the sequel to And I Darken. Amazing books.

What achievement are you most proud of? The founding of SORA.

Favourite song? Unstoppable by Sia. It’s so empowering, and great to dance to while you’re wiping up the dishes.

You are happiest when? I’m laughing, joking and smiling like an idiot with my friends, while they are also smiling like idiots.

Best advice you’ve been given? Be strong, because you never know who you are inspiring. Also that you are in charge of how your day goes; nobody else is. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? My best friend’s house. If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? The fact that we are so closed about LGBTI+ topics the majority of the time. Just last year I was at the Sunshine Coast Council chambers protesting because

What frustrates you the most? That is a long list, but at the top of it, I would have to say when people think that being gay is all I am, and that I chose to be this way. And school. School is definitely up the top of that list. How do you deal with your frustrations? By reading, and escaping to my own little world where homophobia doesn’t exist and there is no homework. But also by being an activist and informing other people about my community, to make that world a bit more real every day.

FEATURE STORY

INSIDE THE WORLD OF MODERN SLAVERY Child sex slavery is a shocking issue many Australians turn a blind eye to, yet it’s happening on a massive scale. Sunshine Coast Christian organisation Destiny Rescue is at the coalface, making a difference one child at a time. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.

Human trafficking is a $40 billion industry. UNESCO estimates that a new child is trafficked every 26 seconds.

T

he colourful streets of Chang Mai are bustling. Scooters zip up and down the restaurant-lined street as the smells of mixed spices and curry waft from the small, cluttered kitchens. The locals are going about their day-today business, selling their wares to tourists with money to spend; ferrying bags of fresh produce home from the markets. Animated school-aged children duck in and out of shopfronts, playing and laughing. In a cafe, an Australian man sits quietly, surveying the street. To the unknowing people passing by, he could be a tourist. Or, perhaps an expat who has opted for the simple Thai life. What they don’t know is that Mike – whose real name can’t be revealed – is an undercover agent working in conjunction with the Australian Federal Police and America’s Federal Bureau of Investigation in a bid to reduce the world’s fastest-growing organised crime. It may sound like something from the pages of a Hollywood script. It’s not. Human trafficking is a $40-billion industry. UNESCO estimates that a new child is trafficked every 26 seconds, while UNICEF estimates there are 21 million people trafficked around the world, many who are sold into sex slavery. Mike is the international rescue manager for Sunshine Coast-based organisation Destiny Rescue. Founded in 2001, the group works out of Thailand, India, Cambodia, the Philippines, Laos and the Dominican Republic and aims to bring freedom to children being sold into sexual exploitation and slavery. The rescued victims are placed into Destiny Rescue

rehabilitation programs and housing. Mike has been living abroad and volunteering full-time for Destiny Rescue since 2011. He makes no income from the role, has given up a stable lifestyle and witnesses the unimaginable daily. He’s also had a gun pointed at his head. Yet, the 44-year-old has no plans to throw it in anytime soon. “I’m a Christian,’’ he says. “I have a soft spot for kids. I remember at school, 20 years ago, the bullying and seeing it happen to kids. It wasn’t nice. I’ve always been moved when I see a kid in trouble. I hate

Some young women, who have been placed in brothels, can be extracted easily. For others, it takes time to build their trust and to build a case to present to authorities who can then conduct a raid. The crime is thriving in Thailand’s Phuket and Pattaya, which has an estimated 20,000 bars and brothels. “Our teams go out into the bars and pose as customers. Obviously we don’t do anything,’’ Mike says. “We start building a case. We get the evidence that the girl is available, find out who takes the money and confirm that she

seeing that. I hate not being able to have the answer. I need to be hands on.’’ Speaking in hushed tones for fear he may be overheard, Mike explains the process involved with rescuing a child. It’s harrowing and at times, downright dangerous.

is under 18. “Then we do video surveillance… where she goes to, how much it costs, who takes the money, where the purchase is being done. That’s given to the police. We meet with them and conduct the raid.” In the past, corruption has negatively impacted raids. However, Destiny Rescue now has a good police team to work with and rescue rates are as high as 80 per cent. In August, the Destiny Rescue team saved 27 children in a Philippine raid. But before any good, comes the bad.

“There are terrible things,’’ Mike reveals. “Last year I went to India, we rescued a four-year-old girl and two eight-year-olds. That sort of thing shocks me. Seeing a dead body of a 13-year-old girl who didn’t get the chance to be rescued. Raped, murdered. It puts an urgency to what we do. The longer the girls stay in there, the worse the emergency. “They (the children) are sold, kidnapped and trafficked. There are a lot of circumstances as to why girls end up in the bars. You can never assume she wants to be there. No girl wants to be there.” Child trafficking is an urgent human rights issue and yet, as Westerners, we continue to turn our back on the issue. There can be no ignoring the fact that modern slavery exists. It’s estimated that up to 80 per cent of human trafficking and slavery is for sex. A 2016 report from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, revealed that 79 per cent of human trafficking victims are women and children. Alarmingly, UNICEF statistics estimate that a child is prepared for sexual exploitation every two minutes. The organisation also reports that the International Labor Organisation’s 2002 estimation of 1.2 million children being trafficked each year remains the reference, however this doesn’t include the millions of children already being held captive. There are some organisations making headway in the fight against trafficking. The UNODC Global Report on Trafficking in Persons 2016 revealed that the number of countries that criminalise most forms of human trafficking increased from 33 in 2003 to 158 in 2016. However, with the myweeklypreview.com.au

FEATURE STORY introduction of national legislation still in its early days, the number of convictions still remains low. In September 2015, the world adopted the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and its targets on human trafficking. These goals call for an end to trafficking, violence and exploitation of women and girls. Groups such as Destiny Rescue are also chipping away at the problem and raising awareness about the plight of the world’s children. Since 2011, 2000 children have been rescued. The organisation has a clear goal: to rescue 100,000 children from the sex industry by the end of the year 2020. Destiny Rescue CEO Michelle Winser says part of the answer lays in cultural change. “As I got told, what we do isn’t palatable at the dinner table. We don’t want to think people do these sorts of things. But when the average cost to buy a human life is $90, it’s time to start the conversation,’’ she says. In Thailand, Australian men are largely contributing to the problem while Thai families are placing their daughters into the industry to combat poverty. “It’s really sickening when you walk the streets and see,’’ Michelle tells My Weekly Preview. “I remember walking through the street and talking to a man going into a go go bar, ‘why do you come over here?’. It’s cheap, it’s where you go. They don’t care. “When we rescue a child in Thailand we have to find their parents and get the parents’ permission for the child to come into our care. On the odd occasion the parents say no and we have to take the child back to the brothel. All we can do after that is go back and check on that child.” Michelle says with no Centrelink or alternative funding, many families have no choice. Either their daughters work or the family starves. “As a mum, and I’ll never be in that situation, selling a child to feed the other three or four, it must be heartwrenching. “For us, the main aim is to reintegrate him or her (the rescued child) into society with a trade and their family. If the can’t go

back to their family, they stay in our care and when they are older we move them into a unit situation with three or four other girls. We teach them here how to buy food, pay rent.” From Thailand to India, the situations vary dramatically. Michelle and her team recently returned from India where they spent some time at the Destiny Rescue prevention home. There are three Indian projects. One of these is a short-term home where children are placed when they are rescued. “We try to get them back to their parents. If it’s generational prostitution they stay with

wage so they have money. “I think one thing I learnt in India, the kids are truly slaves in every sense of the word. They have no voice. We need to be a voice for these kids. “Kids deserve to be safe and laugh, whether they are black or white, purple with red polka dots. “People ask ‘how much money do you want?’ It’s not about money all the time. It’s about banding together and saying it’s not OK to have sex with kids. “If we have enough voices, the governments might listen and celebs might

NEVER TOO YOUNG Ella Frylink may only be 12 but she has big dreams of changing the world. The Sunshine Coast student is a youth ambassador for Destiny Rescue and recently abstained from eating dessert, lollies and chocolates for a month to raise $3000 for the charity. Her mum, Kelly, is proud of the work her daughter is doing and says it’s important to discuss tough issues in the home. “The fact that there are children across the world that need to be rescued from abuse and slavery is something that I believe should be openly discussed in homes. But, age appropriately,” Kelly says. Ella plans to continue her work and hopes other families will get on board. “From a very young age, for as long as I can remember, I have had a dream in my heart to rescue children and run an orphanage,’’ she says. “The work Destiny Rescue do is so important because no one deserves to be treated the way these young girls get treated every day. I am the average age of a girl who would get trafficked which just makes me want to help even more. “I can’t imagine getting treated this way, it’s so disgusting and evil. If I was trapped in this horrible life, I would want someone to do anything they could help rescue me.”

Michelle Winser with rescued girls in India us,’’ Michelle says. “We become the child’s carer until they are 18.” These children are relocated to Destiny Rescue’s long-term home – they go to school, have chores, play games. The youngest currently in the organisation’s care is five. The third project is focused on Delhi’s five major slums, which each house around 50,000 people. There is no financial assistance, no Medicare, no food. “These parents take their children and send them out to service men throughout the slum to be able to feed the rest of the family,’’ Michelle says. “What we’ve done is open a project where the girls do a school program then a sewing program. At the end of the day they get a cash

stop endorsing the latest Birkin bag and do this instead. Money is good but we need to get a real voice happening. “For me, when I’m walking the streets at night on rescues, I feel overwhelmed. There are still a lot of kids out there waiting for us.” For Mike, he will continue to make one rescue at a time, knowing that his own sacrifices are nothing compared to those of child victims. “One night in Bangkok I was walking to a 7/11 outside my hotel and I saw two girls that I had rescued,’’ he says. “They went through the program for four years and they remembered me. They were crying on the streets, they gave me a hug. They are nurses now. We were able to put them through nursing school.”

HOW YOU CAN HELP Around 83 per cent of Destiny Rescue’s funds come from Australian families. It costs about $1500 to rescue one child and put them into care, which includes health and counselling sessions. From the rescue to restoring a child, it costs about $6000 a year. • People can donate online. There is also a pre-tax giving program, which people can set up with their employers. • Volunteers are also needed for team trips and in-office work on the Sunshine Coast. • Host a Destiny Rescue jewellery party. The products are made by the rescue girls with funds going back into the organisation.

CUTTING-EDGE HEART DISEASE TRIAL NEEDS YOU A University of Queensland-led study conducted at Sunshine Coast University Hospital is using advanced technology to determine a person’s risk of developing heart disease. Coast volunteers are needed for the trial, which will reveal whether they have very early signs of heart disease. Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service cardiologist Professor Tony Stanton says volunteers will undergo a CT scan to obtain their coronary calcium score. Stanton says the tests, provided free to trial participants, normally cost more than $500. Men and women aged between 40 and 70 with no diagnosed heart disease and who are not already on cholesterol lowering medication are able to volunteer for the study. Contact research nurse Sarah McLennan on 3176 7500 or caught@uq.edu.au.

JOIN THE NINJA WARRIOR CRAZE FOR FUNDRAISER More than 2000 people are expected to try their hand at Kawana Waters State College’s Ninja Colour Challenge FUNraiser on October 13. They will hop, run, jump, and swing their way through the obstacle course, explore bubble soccer, archery, skate boarding, ‘dunk the teacher’, live music, dance performances, major prize raffle, laser zone, a jumping castle, face painting, fairy floss and much more. Entry is $2 and anyone aged from four to 94 can give it a go. All funds raised will go towards upgrades of the school campuses. For more information, visit Kawana P and C on Facebook.

Caloundra Health Service will receive $155,000 worth of important medical equipment thanks to the community-funded organisation Caloundra Hospital Auxiliary. The Ophthalmology Unit will receive a special eye chair and slit-lamp microscope. The auxiliary is also purchasing a therapeutic bath for the hospital’s palliative care unit, which will allow patients to walk directly into the bath or be transferred by a hoist. The therapy bath will provide access to the comforts of a warm bath that would otherwise be inaccessible.

COUNCIL TURNS ON TAPS FOR RESIDENTS IN NEED Following four months of little to no rain, Sunshine Coast residents living on tank water are quickly running dry and with just 1.6 millimetres of rain falling in the first 16 days of September, relief is a long way off. Water supply companies are working through wait lists up to four weeks long to deliver water to homes and in the meantime, the Sunshine Coast Council has opened up public taps and hoses for residents in need of water to fill up water storage containers for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene. These are available in Beerwah, Eumundi, Glass House Mountains, Kenilworth, Landsborough, Maleny, Nambour, North Arm, Palmwoods, Woombye and Yandina. For the list of addresses, visit sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.

BUDERIM FOUNDATION CELEBRATES 10 YEARS OF GIVING The Buderim Foundation has given a total of $64,000 to 17 organisations through its Community Grants Program. This brings the total amount of funds granted to the Buderim community through the program over the last 10 years to $404,000. Buderim Foundation grants committee chair Lisa Edward says it was remarkable to reach this figure given their first round of grants saw three cheques handed out with a total of $16,000. The 10-year milestone was celebrated with an afternoon of family fun and entertainment on the green next to the BWMCA Hall.

2000 JOBS NEW CYCLEWAY CONNECTS THE DOTS A new shared cycleway on Goonawarra Drive in Mooloolaba now provides a vital connection for cyclists between schools, TAFE and the university. It’s the latest in a series of new cycling facilities, making it easier for people to ride safely on the Sunshine Coast. The project was jointly funded by council and the Queensland Government’s Cycle Network Local Government Grants program, with the State Government contributing $275,000 to the project, which links the region’s principal cycle network, connecting the underpass under the Sunshine Motorway to the intersection of Palm Drive.

SANAD Capital has received Sunshine Coast Council approval to begin bulk earthworks on its recently revealed active lifestyle destination ACTVENTURE. The council approved the work on September 4, and SANAD immediately commenced preparations to engage local contractors to begin moving earth. Tenders went out last week to six civil contractors on the Sunshine Coast and in Brisbane, who will submit their bids to complete the bulk earthworks for the entire site. In its first phase, the four-phase, 24-hectare project will include a water park, a great lawn for major events and concerts and a retail and restaurant precinct. Two thousand jobs will be created during construction.

PROFILE

SOMETHING TO SAY A new baby, radio gig and plans for Boyzone reunion. They’re all part of the latest busy chapter in Ronan Keating’s life. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

L

ife is a rollercoaster for Ronan Keating, who is gearing up to be one of the headliners for the Caloundra Music Festival this month. But the Irish musician, who shot to fame in 1994 as the lead singer of Boyzone, says he wouldn’t change a thing. The 40-year-old has sold more than 25 million records worldwide as a member of Boyzone, and a further 20 million as a solo artist since 1999. He continues to tour around the world, has an established film and television career, is about to embark on a career in British radio, and just welcomed son Cooper into the world with new wife Storm. “He’s brilliant. He’s a little legend and is sleeping really well. He’s full of smiles. Just brilliant,” Keating gushes when he speaks to My Weekly Preview while on route to a London studio. “His brothers and sisters absolutely love him and Storm’s been wonderful.” Keating tied the knot with Storm Uechtritz, a Queenslander born in Childers, in August 2015. The couple met on the set of The X Factor, where Keating featured as a judge for five seasons and Uechtritz was one of the show’s producers. Keating was the winning mentor on the show twice, with Altiyan Childs in his inaugural year in 2010, and in 2014 with Marlisa Punzalan. Keating then moved on to become a coach on The Voice in 2016 and says while he doesn’t “miss the shows overly,” he enjoyed “six fantastic years” in the roles. “What I miss is being in Australia. The culture, the way of life, the people, and the places. I would live there in the morning if it wasn’t so far away from my kids, who live in Ireland. Hands down, I’d live there in the morning and Storm agrees with that totally,” he says. With his new mother-in-law living on the Sunshine Coast, Keating says they have enjoyed a couple of family holidays in the region with Jack, Missy and Ali, his children with former wife Yvonne Connolly. “We just rented a house on the beach and it was just incredible,” he says. “We’ve been a couple of times now and we will get some great time again in Australia soon. There’s going to be a big family get-together and I’ll be able to sing a few tunes.” Keating is talking about his appearance at the 2017 Caloundra Music Festival, where he is set to headline on the Soul Stage on October 1. “I’m very excited about [the set]. I’ll be bringing out the

hits from the past 25 years. Everything from When You Say Nothing At All and Life is a Rollercoaster. “There’ll be something new and something old and I’ll have my band with me. Summer festivals, for me, are a high point of the year and I’m looking forward to playing on the Sunshine Coast.” A regular on the European summer festival circuit, Keating recently played in Norway, Zurich, Munich and Berlin, and has also been in rehearsals with his former

Boyzone bandmates with a reunion tour of the UK on the cards for later this year. Keating made his musical debut with the band in 1994 alongside Keith Duffy, Michael Graham, Shane Lynch, and Stephen Gately. Gately passed away in October 2009, but the remaining foursome continues the legacy. They are set to release a Boyzone album later this year, followed by a tour kicking off in 2018. “It’s like nothing’s changed with the boys,” Keating says. “It’s like catching up with an old school friend; you just slip back into that world, that sense of humour, that bubble. It’s a great feeling.” While juggling Boyzone rehearsals with spending time at home with his newborn son, Keating is also preparing to become a new Magic Radio weekday breakfast show co-host, a gig he says makes him “slightly nervous”. “The repetition of being in the same place for a long time, for five days a week, is nothing like anything I have ever done in my career. I am always moving around constantly. But being home every afternoon to see my newborn fella will be wonderful,” he says. “There will be a couple of trips for different gigs on the weekends, but Monday to Friday will be quite calm for me, which is a whole new feeling and I’m quite excited about that.” When asked if he’ll be giving the new Boyzone tracks a spin or two while in the hot seat, Keating replies with an emphatic “hell yeah!”. “Radio’s a very strong, powerful medium. It’s probably the strongest in the UK because people aren’t watching TV anymore. They are all on Netflix or other streaming services,” he says. “For me, obviously radio has been the strongest medium throughout my career. It’s a strong position to be in as a musician. I love songs, I love music, and I love playing songs for people. When I have guests around, I am always trying to introduce them to new songs so it’s a passion of mine.” Keating has dabbled in films and television shows, most recently starring in the Jersey-based film Another Mother’s Son, and the fourth season of Australian drama Love Child. While he is already working on another secret film project, Keating says his heart will always be in music, which he describes as his “heart and soul”. “I love to sit down every evening and play the guitar and write songs. Film and television interest me greatly, but they are not the be all and end all. I am passionate about music and will pursue that constantly.”

MY OPINION

MARRIAGE: IT’S PERSONAL

WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE-CREAM

Sunshine Coast lawyer Kyle Kimball says marriage should be a personal decision, not a group decision, to ensure love and companionship.

Sami Muirhead is indulging in daily gelatos during her trip to Greece, confident it will add to a lifetime of fond ice-cream memories.

I

have become an addict. A gelato aficionado who counts down the hours until I can justify a second slurping session of ice-cream for the day. Double scoop both sessions. And yes, with chocolate drizzle and whipped cream. I have gone rogue on my family and abandoned them to most likely kill each other this week as I write this from Athens. Do not hate me. I am propping up the dismal Greek economy one gelato at a time. I am perched at a square little table covered in a blue and white checked tablecloth. I am surrounded overhead by grapevine canopies and crumbling terracotta rooftop cafes and bars as a Greek man plays a guitar. The Acropolis and its awesome monolithic marble columns are leaning into the clouds in the horizon. It is a world for hedonists. The white linens. The fresh food. The endless shops of jewellery. The carafes of white wine. But my euros seems to be disappearing at a rapid rate every day at the gelato shops. Flavours here are varied and some of the more unusual ones include hazelnut, quince, ouzo, fig and pistachio. My bottom gets bigger just thinking about it. And the cones! The waffle cones are dipped in chopped nuts and chocolate or hundreds and thousands. Eating a gelato is an experience. A very joyful one. People of all ages walk down the alleyway looking so excited with their purchase. Lovers walk hand in hand with that contented look you only achieve when

you are with the love of your life – and ice-cream. Remember that scene from The Notebook when Rachel McAdams licked ice-cream off Ryan Gosling’s nose? How could we forget? And what about Audrey Hepburn hitting the gelato shop in Roman Holiday as part of her secret few days of sucking the marrow out of life. I have become friends with Tasos the gorgeous young Greek guy who serves up the scoops of cold cuisine for my daily hits. Tasos laughs every time I enter his gorgeous little shop and shouts out in his cheeky voice, “The Aussie ice-cream curvy mummy is back again!” As a child some of my happiest memories are of mum buying me a single soft serve cone from the Mr Whippy van. We would run into the street in our terry towelling shorts hoping desperately the truck would not drive off. When I was 18, I had an older guy take me on a date to Mossimos ice-cream shop at Noosa. I thought he knew everything after this and was so suave, clearly worldly. For 20 years, one of my best friends and I have tried to heal broken hearts and celebrated successes by sitting together and splitting a tub of chocolate rocky road ice-cream. And my kids will clean up the toy room just on the promise of a bowl of ice-cream for dessert. It is a powerful food. Perhaps Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un need to just go out for some ice-cream to create world peace.

here there is love there is life’ – Mahatma Gandhi. Throughout the world, marriage is a tradition that, at its most base level, arose out of the simple fact we are social creatures. We do not exist in isolation. We need, and crave, social connection of all sorts to survive and thrive. Humans need love in all its forms. A marriage contract is the most personal of contracts. The joining of two people, two consenting adults, to the exclusion of all others. Religious beliefs aside, no one presumes to allow the government or anyone else to tell them how they should conduct their marriage once the fact of the marriage has occurred. In which case, that whether you can in fact get married is a decision out of your hands seems ludicrous. Why should entry to such a personal arrangement be subject to the imprimatur of people not in the slightest way affected by it? Those against the idea of same-sex marriage offer a view, often expressed as being ‘personal’ to them. I suspect that is sometimes code for ‘not willing to express a view that may be open to criticism’. The reticence is understandable in this age of keyboard warriors and trolls. And those in support of same-sex marriage often fall into the trap common to those not so conservative. A sense of smug satisfaction at ‘knowing’ their view

is the only right and sensible view. That conceit often then leads to condescension toward the conservative element which completely inhibits any civilised debate. The supporters of both sides of the argument are plagued with hypocrisy on many levels, a not uncommon factor in any public debate. Ten-second sound bites do not allow room for nuance or

“Some Indian cultures require the groom to marry a tree first” sensitivity after all. But that there is any public debate on so personal a matter is true irony. Around the globe, marriage takes many forms and traditions. Some Indian cultures require the groom to marry a tree first. A Chinese province has no marriage at all, its women having hundreds of partners in a lifetime. The lack of any known father to children has led to a completely matriarchal society. What is common to all marriages, no matter their form, is that they exist at their core, to further our unmitigated need for love and companionship. We need more of that in the world, not less.

MORE THAN A PIPE DREAM A University of the Sunshine Coast professor needs funding to make his innovative road transport system a reality. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane

A

ground-breaking plan by a University of the Sunshine Coast professor could transform road freight across Australia’s eastern states in the future. Professor John Yeaman, who this year received a Member of the Order of Australia for service to civil engineering, is researching the plan for a 150kmh road built on high-tech plastic pipes between Weipa and Melbourne. The 79-year-old started his early working life in the quarrying industry, where he used or sold non-renewable resources daily. “We are all using so much non-renewable resources in building roads and other infrastructure, so I wanted to look for something else, something that is sustainable, and it came from the fact that we haven’t changes the way we build roads since Julius Caesar,” he says. “Pipes or tubes are the strongest form of structure and you can also run electricity through them or pump water through them. The road system we are researching would open up Queensland. If we can run a road that carries water right through the outback of Australia, we can grow anything.” If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It is the title of Yeoman’s research paper, but he says the

Professor John Yeaman system is broken. “We are depleting nonrecoverable resources and while we do use lots of recycled materials again in roads, a lot also goes to landfill,” he says. Yeoman says his proposed road network would see convoys of self-driving trucks carrying freight direct from Weipa to Melbourne in 24 hours, saving five days’

transport time and taking tonnes of freight from other roads, rail and the sea. “They would join a peloton of 10 to 12 vehicles on the road and transfer control to the lead vehicle, which would then control the whole peloton. If they need to leave the road at any stage to make a delivery, the driver can then switch to manual and pull out. The vehicles in front and behind would then close out. If another vehicle wishes to join, they simply add onto the end. It’s pretty magic like that,” he says. Yeoman has been USC’s Professor of Civil Engineering Construction since 2011 and has spent three years working with research students connected to the Master of Engineering (Transport Technologies). “They’re some very bright young people who come to this university and they’ve got good ideas. That’s what keeps me young,” he says. “I want the next generation of civil engineers to adopt innovative approaches; using the latest technologies to find solutions to problems. “For example, the road proposal I’ve been working on for three years could remove the need for rail lines to ports on the Great Barrier Reef. Instead, coal mines in the Galilee Basin could pump slurry to Weipa, to be

carried on the new polyethylene pipe road heading south.” When he presented his vision to a regional engineering forum on the Sunshine Coast earlier this year and at a conference in Milan last month, Yeoman says he received mixed responses. “Half the audience wants to stone me as a heretic, and the other half think it’s a good idea, but it will never work. There is usually one person who is inspired and thinks it’s a great idea. That’s what keeps me going,” he says. “This research is important because I feel that in 2030, almost everything will be an autonomous vehicle, so we should be doing the research now at a small cost, instead of rushing to do it when it is vital and have to throw huge amounts of money at it.” Yeoman hopes the government will see benefits of getting ahead, and hopes to secure $30 million over five years to have up to 30 PhD students “working on the problem.” “If we can do that, we will have the problem solved in five years and even if we then put it on the shelf, when the time comes, we will be ready to start building the system,” he says.

COMPETITIVE KIDS KICKING GOALS FOR THE COAST The Sunshine Coast is continuing to attract large sporting events and competitions, and the region’s reputation and its businesses are reaping the rewards.

A

s the Ironman 70.3 athletes were nursing their sore muscles and saying goodbye to the Coast, another group of sporting stars was making its way into the region. Around 1400 of the world’s best youth and masters touch footballers descended on the Sunshine Coast Stadium in Bokarina for the National Youth Touch Football Championship. The Harvey Norman National Youth Championships, the Harvey Norman School Series Cup, the Alliance Cup and Masters Trans-Tasman were all played from September 13 to 17. A further 1000 young netballers in 128 teams competed in the Primary Schools Netball Cup on September 16 and 17 at Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex. Tourism Sport and Major Events portfolio councillor Jason O’Pray says both sports are attracting growing numbers of participants and hosting the events showcased the region and its sporting facilities. “Touch football is booming in Australia with participation numbers and popularity growing rapidly, so it’s terrific to have this national event for the sport staged on the Sunshine Coast,” he says. “Netball is also one of the most popular

fantastic economic benefits for our local businesses and provide great exposure that will generate future tourism interest and opportunities for our region,” he says. Maroochy River Park assistant manager Kirk Nicholson says events at the nearby Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex and surrounds are great for his

“These events are expected to deliver fantastic economic benefits … and provide great exposure” Around 1400 competitors took part in the National Youth Touch Football Championship sports among Australian children with around one in five aged between six and 13 playing. The stunning success of our Sunshine Coast Lightning team has sparked an increased interest in the game locally and I’m sure our local teams are hoping to emulate their win. “Both events involve thousands of

business. “We were fully booked out for the Netball Cup and are continuing to refer business on to other accommodation providers,” he says. “We were also extremely busy with recent events such as the Sunshine Coast Marathon and Ironman 70.3 and we find major events in general are hugely beneficial to our business.”

Sudden pain in joints or feet? Extreme pain in your toes? Could it be gout? Recurrent bouts of gout can lead to degenerative arthritis Have you experienced severe and sudden pain in one joint? Do you get strong pain in your toes where even the sheets are too heavy? Too painful to walk or feel as though your toe is broken? Has someone in your family suffered gout? Gout was once known as a rich man’s disease, as it was thought to be caused by over indulgence of certain foods such as meats and alcohol, but it can just as easily stem from a diet lacking in key nutrients. Risk factors include family history, obesity, high blood pressure, stress – particularly following a fracture or surgical procedure, alcohol consumption, diabetes or kidney dysfunction.

Up to 95% of gout is related to specific foods and quickly treatable

Gout can occur in the big toe, but may just as easily present in other joints of the feet, ankles, fingers, wrists, elbows or knees. Common symptoms include swelling, heat and stiffness, the joint appearing shiny red or purple, a fever or racing heart, with pain lasting from a few hours, days or even weeks at a time. If left untreated, attacks will become more frequent and severe. Accessing the right treatment to address the primary triggers can drastically reduce the incidence of a repeat attack. Knowing which foods to avoid and urgently treating any nutritional deficiencies can markedly improve your recovery. The reality is that medications used to treat gout often come with toxic side effects and are not designed for long term use. Fortunately, medications are not the only option, however, every person has a unique set of triggers that create these symptoms. Thorough specialised testing is essential to investigate all causes, which may stem from any undetected inflammatory condition, such as specific bacteria, food triggers, virus or more, ensuring you get on top of your health quickly and effectively. Returning you to correct metabolic weight, restoring energy levels and expert advice on nutrition are essential to obtaining your long term wellness.

IT’S LOOKING LIKE A HOT SUMMER FOR ELECTRICITY PRICES

O

rd Minnett has undertaken a review of the wholesale electricity market, leading us to lift our forecasts for wholesale electricity prices, with the benefits flowing to generators AGL Energy and Origin Energy. Our key findings are as follows: 1. Policy uncertainty and historically low returns for owners of power generation assets has meant the rollout of renewable generation has not kept up with closures in baseload capacity. The political uncertainty around energy policy means private investors have little confidence to commit the hundreds of millions, or perhaps even billions of dollars, required to build new power generation assets. 2. Electricity shortages, as highlighted by the latest report titled Electricity Statement of Opportunities from the Australian Energy Market Operator, should lead to higher spot and forward prices. “We face an increasing and unacceptable risk that there will be insufficient capability in the system,” the operator said. The report noted investment in renewable energy was increasing, but also highlighted that renewables cannot provide reliable power at all times without storage, meaning “the system has become more variable and

LIVEABILITY STRATEGY A long-term strategy to maintain the liveability of the Sunshine Coast and build on its environmental credentials over the next 25 years has been endorsed by the council.

economically challenging for traditional supply”. Ord Minnett expects these shortages will drive prices higher and therefore benefit companies that own existing power generation assets, such as AGL and Origin. Based on the above findings, we have recently increased our forecasts for wholesale electricity spot and forward prices, which in turn leads to higher earnings forecasts for both AGL and Origin. We reiterate our accumulate recommendations on both stocks, with a preference for AGL given more valuation upside. We also increase our target prices to $28.85 from $28.30 for AGL and to $8.30 from $7.75 for Origin. We believe that AGL will be the greatest beneficiary of higher wholesale prices. The higher wholesale prices will flow on to retail prices, which should mean that earnings for AGL will grow further into FY19. The biggest risks for AGL include the potential for price re-regulation and offshore expansion. That said, the stock is now trading more than 15 per cent below our valuation and offers an expected dividend yield of five per cent fully franked, hence our positive view. Origin will also benefit from higher retail prices and its flexible generation fleet. The company’s generation assets cover only its residential retail customers. Higher wholesale costs will be passed on to its commercial and industrial customers. Its Australia Pacific LNG asset is now operating at capacity, so we expect positive cash flow will allow debt repayment in the near term, which may broaden the appeal of the company to a wider range of investors.

Key objectives include managing population growth, creating livable spaces to work and live, focusing on renewable energy and building resilience against the impacts of climate change. Around 3500 people connected with council through the consultation process earlier this year to have a say about the final strategy, Mayor Mark Jamieson says. “There is strong community recognition that the protection and enhancement of our environment and distinct landscape is fundamental to the future of our region. “Together with our Regional Economic Development Strategy and our Social Strategy, the Environment and Liveability Strategy provides a comprehensive framework to guide and shape the future growth of the Sunshine Coast.”

LAH-LAH LIVE ON THE COAST Music is a vital part of early childhood development, says Tina Harris from ABC show Lah-Lah’s Big Live Band. Words: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

ina Harris loves nothing more than seeing a sea of stripes and spots when she takes to the stage as the lead singer of Lah-Lah. The accomplished opera singer has performed with the Theatre of Image, Chamber Made Opera, and Opera Australia and also spent two years teaching English to Japanese students through a self-designed program using song to teach language. But the mother of two says when she had her eldest daughter 14 years ago, she felt a

“slight shift, like so many mums do”. “I wanted to find something that worked well with having a family, and also do something I am passionate about. So I started early childhood music classes,” she tells My Weekly Preview. “The first class became a school, which ended up being four schools, and it has just grown. In the last session of the program, my husband Mark would come in with his double bass and we’d do a mini show. It wasn’t long before parents started telling us

we should do a big show.” Almost 10 years ago, Lah-Lah Productions was born and Harris transformed into the show’s namesake. Her husband became Buzz, the band leader, and they roped in long-time friends Nic Cecire as Tom Tom, Matt Ottignon as Mr Saxophone and Gary Daley as Squeezy Sneezy. With a shared background in education and each member accomplished performers, the team forged a path that focused on connecting young children with music and developing a passion for instruments. Their latest show, Having Fun, is on its way to the Sunshine Coast these school holidays and Harris says it is her favourite show to date. “We’ve done some cool new things and tried to incorporate new elements from an entertainment point of view while keeping up with the important educational point of view,” she says. When the band isn’t performing, or appearing on their popular ABC Kids show Lah-Lah’s Big Live Band, they are actively connecting with parents and educators around the country through their Music Room program and newly launched Kids Music Group by Lah-Lah Facebook group, which gained 1200 followers in just four days. Caloundra RSL, September 23 at 10.30am. Tickets are $25.50 and are available at caloundrarsl.com.au/entertain.

READER’S CORNER Minecraft The Island Author: Max Brooks Publisher: Penguin RRP: $22.95 Reviewer: Tasman Smith, aged 12 The story starts as the main character spawns in the Minecraft world and has no idea what to do, or how the world works. As part of his journey he learns how to craft, which is finding resources and turning them into other items. This part is very similar to the game. His home is on an island in the sea, with only a few animals, white birch trees and rolling hills and lakes, beaches and other terrains. From this landscape, he has to craft and create his home. The general storyline is about how the main character creates a massive house and, then something happens to it. I can’t tell you what, though, because it would ruin the story. The main character doesn’t have a name mentioned, but he has his few animal friends called Moo the cow, Flint the grey sheep and Cloud the white sheep. It reminded me of when I first started playing Minecraft and I had no idea what I was doing, I just had to figure it out. Overall, I think it’s a great book and I would recommend it to other people, mainly gamers though. I give this book an 8/10.

One of Queensland’s largest annual festivals, the Airlie Beach Music Festival, has once again created a great opportunity for an up-and-coming Sunshine Coast original band. Entries are now open for interested bands to participate in the Passport to Airlie Sunshine Coast Battle of the Bands competition to win a performance spot at the Airlie Beach Festival, which will be held from November 7 to 9 this year. Backing up on the success of last year’s competition, which saw around 40 local bands give their best over four heats of band action at the Yacht Club in Mooloolaba, the competition will move to a new home in Marcoola at the Surfair Beach Hotel. Host venue manager Andrew Daly says the Surfair is well known as the launching pad for so many great Aussie bands, including INXS, Midnight Oil, The Angels, Hoodoo Gurus and Powderfinger, who all played at the venue when they were starting out. “We are excited to see what new talent may follow in the path of these great bands when hosting the Passport to Airlie right here on Sunday arvos at the newly renovated Surfair Beach Hotel,” Daly says. Bands are encouraged to enter through the Passport to Airlie Sunshine Coast Facebook page as soon as possible. Heats will be held every Sunday afternoon, with the final taking place on October 8. The festival has slots for all types of bands except metal genres. Email bookings@beatscartel.com or phone the venue on 5457 2555.

MOTORING PREVIEW

BABY YOU CAN DRIVE MY… SUV Nissan believes its future success lies with the SUV, and that future is bright if the new Pathfinder is anything to go by, writes Peter Atkinson, AAP.

I

n case there was ever any doubt that SUVs are taking over the automotive world, here’s a sobering fact. Remember Nissan? For decades a central player in the Australian passenger car market? You know, that popular Japanese brand that brought us iconic nameplates like the Pulsar, Bluebird, Skyline, Maxima, Altima, Micra and, yes, even the oddly named Tiida? (Not to mention all manner of Datsuns before the name change.) So consider this. Nissan no longer offers a conventional passenger car in its Australian

model line-up. Not one. The Nissan range comprises SUV models, the Navara ute and a couple of sports cars. But no sedans. No hatchbacks. No conventional station wagons. Of course, this circumstance is mostly born of the way in which Nissan’s SUV models are becoming ever-more car-like. They’ve invaded the traditional sedan’s territory to the point where, in Nissan’s eyes at least, they’ve made the conventional car redundant. Truth is, modern SUVs are bigger, more flexible and practical, yet no less rewarding to

drive than the station wagon that once served as the ideal family car. Their high-riding stance is virtually the only thing that, these days, separates most SUVs from a traditional wagon format. And sitting fairly close to the top of the Nissan SUV family is the Pathfinder. This fourth-generation model was launched in 2012 but has undergone a substantial facelift – both mechanical and cosmetic – this year. With an entry-level pricetag of just over $40K, the Pathfinder is big, roomy, practical, versatile and eminently pleasant to drive. We tested the Pathfinder in its most basic form, the front-wheel-drive, standard-spec ST trim. With the absence of all-wheel-drive it doesn’t even pretend to have some kind of off-road pedigree. It’s basically a traditional family wagon, but in an SUV shape. And it’s an impressive thing. As the Pathfinder ably demonstrates, it drives, handles and performs as well as any traditional wagon did. We were amazed at how smooth, powerful and refined the Pathfinder was in this entry-level guise. Under the bonnet, Nissan has always been notable for its strong, smooth engines, and this V6 is a beauty. Inside, cargo space is restricted if all seats are occupied but roomy if five or fewer are in use. There’s plenty of cleverly thought-out storage space, including little trays for keys,

sunglasses and garage-door openers, as well as ample slots for smartphones and the like. The mid-life makeover adds a substantial suite of technology, including electronic safety aides like intelligent emergency braking, intelligent (radar) cruise control and rear cross-traffic alert in higher-spec models. An all-round view monitor makes it a breeze to park such a big thing. Looking further up the Pathfinder range will allow you to add extra luxury and technology – even the option of all-wheeldrive if you wish. But these days, that’s not really what SUVs are all about, is it?

NISSAN PATHFINDER ST HOW BIG? It’s a full-sized seven-seater with interior space that’s very close to class-leading. The cabin format is quite flexible, too, allowing you to make the most of that space depending on how many seats are occupied. HOW FAST? The 3.5-litre V6 engine has undergone some substantial upgrades, resulting in outputs of 202kW and 340Nm. That translates into responsive, almost brisk performance and plenty of low-down pulling power. HOW THIRSTY? With an average thirst of 9.9L/100km it can’t match class leaders like the Mazda CX-9 – or some diesel rivals – but that’s still reasonable for such a big, capacious thing. HOW MUCH? The entry-level ST, tested here, starts at $41,990 plus onroad costs.

ARE YOU A BABY BOOMER?

G

oogle the question and you’ll find some fun content like this quiz…

Watergate is: (a) a large dam (b) the scandal that led to Nixon’s resignation. Paris Hilton is: (a) a highly publicised heiress, socialite, model, and media personality (b) a posh hotel in France named after the nation’s capital. Of course, if you’re a Boomer, you know the answers are always (b).

TALKING ‘BOUT MY GENERATION So, what is it about Baby Boomers? What are the key characteristics that makes this generation so interesting? Boomer stereotypes are rife, so the next time some young hipster says, “you boomers ruined the environment and housing affordability”, why not shoot these stats at their bearded faces?

One of the most adaptable of all age groups, Boomers embrace new technology, spending an average of 21 hours a week online and Boomers hold the lion’s share of Australia’s wealth, with more than half own their home outright.

HEALTHY, WEALTHY AND WISE The Australia Institute says retired Baby Boomers will be wealthier, healthier and longer-lived than any previous generation. According to online sources, Boomers are shying away from staid, traditional retirement villages and opting for standalone, low-maintenance single-storey homes surrounded by sporting and recreational facilities. The good news for Baby Boomers is housing options are increasingly attractive, especially at lifestyle communities like Nature’s Edge Buderim. At Nature’s Edge Buderim, over 50s can buy a spacious architecturally-designed home within a gated community in the Buderim foothills. A multimillion-dollar

Nature’s Edge Buderim is where the wise Boomers are going leisure centre is nearing completion, exclusively for resident use. Most importantly, there are no exit fees and every home owner keeps all the capital gain when they decide to sell and leave.

Head where the wise Boomers are going. Contact one of the Nature’s Edge Buderim’s lifestyle consultants on 1800 218 898 and ask for a personalised tour.

CALL FOR BETTER FLU VACCINE AS NURSING HOMES AFFECTED BY EPIDEMIC A fast mutating and highly diverse strain of flu is to blame for the deadly outbreaks in Australian nursing homes, highlighting the need for a better vaccine, says a leading infectious diseases expert. To date, there have been a record 132,732 laboratory confirmed notifications of influenza in Australia, with several nursing home residents in Victoria and Tasmania dying as a result of the outbreak. Monash University Professor Allen Cheng, who is also the Director of Infection Prevention at The Alfred Hospital, says a particular subtype of flu circulating this year explains the concerning number of deaths among the elderly. “The type of flu strain that is circulating this year is [Influenza A] H3 and that tends to affect older people,” Cheng says. He also says this particular subtype strain

is harder to protect against via a vaccine. There are three types of flu viruses: A, B, and C. H3N2 is a subtype of influenza A. “The flu virus in general changes from year to year, just enough to affect you again,” Cheng says. “With H3, for reasons that aren’t entirely clear, it’s more diverse so it’s hard to find a vaccine that will target all the different types of H3 strains that are out there.” Health officials say it’s still too early to tell if this year’s flu vaccine was ineffective. WHO Collaborating Centre for Reference and Research on Influenza in Melbourne deputy director Professor Ian Barr says an interim report card on this year’s vaccine is expected to be released within the next three weeks following a meeting of WHO delegates in Melbourne. It was confirmed on the weekend that

seven people aged between 70 and 94 at St John’s Retirement Village in Wangaratta had died between August 16 and 30 as a result of the outbreak. The outbreak also killed six residents of a Tasmanian nursing home earlier in August, sparking moves by federal health minister Greg Hunt to make the flu vaccination

“The vaccination rate in Australia stands at just 20 per cent” compulsory among aged care workers. “We’ll be moving to ensure all health workers in the aged care sector are vaccinated subject to any medical

exemptions,” Hunt says. Australian Medical Association President Michael Gannon says the deadly nursing home outbreaks are a ‘wake-up call’ to all Australians to get their flu shot. The vaccination rate in Australia currently stands at just 20 per cent, according to the latest estimates. While its worth getting the flu shot, Cheng says immunisation against the flu only provides a person between 30 to 50 per cent protection. “That’s not very good. The measles vaccine, for example, is 95 per cent effective,” he says. “Ultimately we probably need a better (influenza) vaccine that is 100 per cent effective, obviously we haven’t got one yet so it’s not that easy a problem to solve but a lot of people are working on it.” AAP

for over-55s, and conveniently located in Lendlease Retirement Villages. Hang on a minute, you might be thinking, retirement villages don’t seem like the sort of places you’d go to party the day away – let alone attend an exclusive festival. Well, think again. The notion of retirement living is evolving – and Lendlease is at the forefront of this new movement. Lendlease Retirement Living managing director Tony Randello says Lendlease Retirement Villages are full of vibrant people who know that age has nothing to do with having fun or getting the most out of life. “The Spring Retirement Festival is a

celebration of everything you live for now. It’s the joy of getting older, remaining vital and having the perspective to appreciate it all,” Randello says. “It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate life, celebrate joy and celebrate getting older with all the vibrancy you can muster. It’s also the ideal chance to meet new people and have a laugh – whether or not you’re already a resident.” The program encompasses the idea of creative ageing. Expect everything including entertainment, arts and culture, crafts, comedy, music, cooking, dancing – and that’s just the beginning. The magic happens when you step inside the village and see first-hand how

Rhonda Burchmore joins Tom Burlinson on the lineup of famous faces who will entertain guests at the Spring Retirement Festival aspirational retirement can be when you belong to a community defined by its warm, engaging and vibrant spirit. Even better? This is a crew who know how to party.

Check it out at Buderim Gardens, 405 Mooloolaba Road, Buderim on September 27 from 6pm to 8pm. Tickets are free, but bookings are essential through springretirementfestival.com.au.

BUSINESS GROWS ALONGSIDE THE FAMILY

Squire Development is a family business with a long history of development on the Coast spanning three generations.

T

he story of Sunshine Coast building company Squire Development Group began more than 50 years ago, and a long way from the Coast. Squire’s managing director, Peter Fletcher, tells My Property Preview that the business actually started in Melbourne, when Peter’s father-in-law Ron Goding started building homes and unit developments in the 1960s. Goding mentored his son-in-law in the trade before moving to the Sunshine Coast with wife Rose. Peter, his wife Sharon and two children Chris and Majella then joined the Godings in 1980. They started building spec homes and some tilt slab sheds in Kunda Park, but then work on the Coast dried up. “We left the Coast for three years when it died around 1981 to 1984,” Peter says. But the family returned to the region and hasn’t looked back. On their return the Fletchers built 17 villas on Sugar Road and then the work kept coming. When pressed for a number, Peter estimates Squire has now completed about 800 homes, units and larger developments, though after all these years he’s lost count. After a few changes of name, in the late

1990s the business was renamed Squire Development Group, and the third generation was well settled in. Peter and Sharon’s son Chris started his apprenticeship with the company in 1990,

MUDJIMBA 26 Surfrider Place

“and he is now in full control”. Daughter Majella Coleman works in marketing in the business, while her husband Jason Coleman is Squire’s site supervisor. Squire concentrates its developments in

the Maroochydore area – Peter says they don’t go north of the river and “the furthest south we have gone is Currimundi. We understand that part of the Coast best. We understand the local market.” As for the future, Peter is excited by the growth in the region, citing the Maroochydore town centre and particularly the hospital developments as fantastic projects for the Coast. The future is bright for the region, and for Squire. Peter is hoping to welcome a grandson into the business, telling MPP that Chris and his wife Sharon have three boys, and he is confident a fourth generation of builders isn’t far away. “Chris’ son will probably do a carpentry apprenticeship” with the business. For now the Fletchers are concentrating on Squire’s latest project Allure – a sevenstorey, two-level-carpark development on Mooloolaba’s First Avenue slated to be finished in September 2018. Peter says 15 of the 32 units are already sold, even though they haven’t yet started building. “That is certainly confidence [in the market].” He adds, “We have a few good investors keen to roll another one so we have an agent looking at another block.”

3/84 The Spit, Parkyn Parade | 2 bed | 2 Bath | 1 Car

“Having owned an apartment at Lahaina in Parkyn Parade Mooloolaba for over twenty years and as the kids had moved on, we decided that the time had come to sell. We carefully reviewed the credentials of local agents and decided upon one located in Maroochydore which seemed to have the runs on the board. Twelve months later there was only one offer which did not meet our expectations. Out of the blue we received an approach from Grant Whisker of Define Property who resided opposite our property in Parkyn Parade. Grant assured us that he could successfully market the property in the short term. We agreed to an exclusive listing for 45 days. Imagine our surprise and appreciation when he had an offer on the table, $20,000 better than that negotiated by the original agency within ten days. Well done Grant. We sincerely appreciate your efforts on our behalf. We have no hesitation in recommending Grant to anyone contemplating a sale in the region.” - Phillip & Ronelle Ellick, April 2017

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Now it is getting interesting. Julian moves up to third on the leader board in WSL. He is now well and truly in the hunt for a world title but the only issue is about eight surfers are looking like they are in there too. Only three events remain. On to France next month. OK, this weekend looks unpromising so get what you can or take a road trip to northern New South Wales. Even Indo seems quiet with swell. What’s a surfer to do? Maybe start up kite surfing, as winds look quite strong. Had another cool whale experience last week while paddling on the stand-up. Baby calf came up to say hello while his mother swam under my board then flipped upside down to show me her beautiful white belly and check me out. The water was boiling everywhere. Truly an amazing experience.

GOOD 13 BETTER 19 BEST 26

ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20)

TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)

GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)

The Jupiter-Uranus opposition ignites your adventurous dare-devil side. But slow down otherwise you’ll put your foot in it and come a cropper! Do your best to find more balance in your relationships, and more equilibrium within yourself.

With Jupiter opposing Uranus, being flexible and fast is the key to a successful week. If you are too stubborn in your opinions, then others will just stop listening. And if you are too slow off the mark then others will streak ahead of you.

Expect some turmoil, especially involving children or acquaintances. Even under provocation, strive to display a flexible approach and a diplomatic demeanour. You’re in a hurry to get ahead but be cautious when it comes to your social circle.

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

Avoid using emotional manipulation to coerce people. If you’re wise this week, you’ll let others make their own choices (and mistakes). It’s also time to initiate overdue career and domestic changes, before Jupiter and Uranus step in and do it for you!

Are you stuck in a rut? This week’s stars encourage you to experiment as you stretch beyond your boundaries. Adventure awaits! But if you rush around and make assumptions about people or situations, then you could end up in hot water.

Venus and Mars are visiting your sign. So use your Virgo charisma to charm others and attract opportunities. And then use your Mars motivation to take action. But expect a turbulent week financially, as Jupiter and Uranus upset your expectations.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec 21)

Librans long for peace, harmony and balance. You hope everything will run smoothly this week but it’s just not going to happen! Partnerships will be unpredictable and loved ones will be disruptive, so revise your expectations and just take things as they come.

Jupiter and Uranus are set to disrupt your routine! Trying to control your timetable will just frustrate everyone. So consider swapping stubbornness for compromise. Your power planet Pluto moves forwards (from Friday) which increases your motivation.

With Saturn moving through your sign, you may feel as if you are failing to live up to your full potential. And then this week, Jupiter and Uranus jump in and disrupt plans. Don’t stress Sagittarius! Mistakes will just motivate you even more.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20)

AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 19)

PISCES (Feb 20-Mar 20)

The more intently you micro-manage relationships, the more loved ones or work colleagues will distance themselves from you. And if you are too bossy with an Aries, Sagittarius or Aquarius, then an explosive power struggle is likely.

Hold onto your seat - it’s going to be a bumpy ride! This week Uranus (your ruling planet) sends disruptions in your direction, plus Jupiter activates your adventurous and spontaneous side. So the only certainty at the moment is change.

It’s going to be a disruptive and confusing week so strive to keep your Piscean cool. Avoid spreading unsubstantiated gossip and blurting out things that you’ll later regret. Take the time to check the facts thoroughly.

Solve all the clues and reveal the eight-letter word spelled down the middle of the grid.

THE LAST WORD

A TOAST TO MARRIAGE

We are all being asked to make an important choice, and Richard O’Leary chooses crunchy.

I

was munching on some toast for my breakfast when I found out about a society-defining postal vote. I stopped mid-chomp, and started to chew over how to approach this subject. Regardless of what question is asked, some people will say just use your common sense, but as I’ve written before, dear readers, I agree with what Einstein said: “Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by 18”. So like Albert himself, I think we should adopt a scientific approach and weigh up the pros and cons of both sides. Now, I think I need to put my cards on the table before we start this examination: I didn’t even know there was an alternative when I was growing up in country New South Wales in the ‘70s. The whole thing was a foreign concept. Those who are urging a vote to keep the status quo argue that tradition is important and any dilution of that will see us take the

first steps towards a rocky road to ruin. I saw one of these conservatives argue that proponents of this view are under assault because they are on the right side of legal and moral history. He called it a referendum on consequences, warning that if the vote

“They say it’s all about love, that we all have the right to choose what we want” didn’t go his way there would be unforeseen consequences for civilisation as we know it. While those pushing for a change claim it will send the right signal to the next generation of Australian children to feel free

to make their own choices, to go with their gut. They say it’s all about love, that we all have the right to choose what we want. Look, I’m not going to judge anybody about which way they are going to vote, but if you really want to know, I’ll be supporting the case for ‘crunchy’ in the national competition being held by one of Australia’s best known food brands: The Peanut Butter Great Debate – Smooth vs. Crunchy. I’m not so worried about the result itself but I would really like to win one of the three family cruises or family holidays. To be honest, I’m more concerned about the outcome of the other plebiscite: on same-sex-marriage. For me, love is love, and I will be supporting a measure which will bring great joy to countless people across the country. Voting yes will make this Australian one happy little Vegemite. olearylastword@gmail.com
