ISSUE 472 October 27, 2017


have a confession to make. Thunder and lightning storms scare the life out of me. I blame my north Queensland upbringing. I’ve sat through my fair share of cyclones. You batten down the hatches, head for the hallway and sit it out praying for the best outcome. And yet, even that haunting sound of the wind whistling around and through the house doesn’t frighten me as much as a bolt of lightning. Perhaps it’s because of the story my Dad insisted on sharing regularly: as a child he was obsessed with storms and would stand by the window watching. This interest continued even after, at the age of 10, a bolt of lightning struck the window, its sheer power sending him flying across the room. It’s fair to say that you won’t find me standing near any windows this storm season. And unlike Dicky Beach photographer Phil Staatz, I won’t be venturing outside as the sky turns a menacing grey. The passion and commitment that storm chasers like Phil have to capture that perfect image – such as the one taken at Bulcock Beach on the cover of this week’s magazine – is fascinating. No matter the time of day, or night, Phil will grab his camera and head outside. This week we chat with Phil about his hair-raising hobby. It’s also timely to remember the importance of safety during storm season. Be educated, prepared, stay indoors and away from flooded areas. Take care.

A NEW LEAF Where do you live? I grew up in a small town in Hertfordshire, UK. I lived in Sydney for nine years before I moved to the Sunshine Coast, where I have been living for nearly two years. First job? I owned a shop in Camden Market in London at the age of 17, with my father who blows hand-blown glass. We sold beautiful glass vases and candle holders. What are you currently working on? I’m working on my high tea parlour in Buderim and trying to bring something unique to the Coast. I am also designing my own teaware. Your family includes… My husband and our daughter Zara. First car? Peugeot 106. Favourite book? The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, which is based on the law of attraction and self help. This book really inspired me and helped me stay positive.


tea lady

Aimee Provence High Tea owner Aimee Russell loves a cuppa. Originally from the UK, the 35-year-old comes from a long line of glassblowers, but she hung up the tools to focus on her passion for interior design, wedding styling and tea. She says a high tea is a wonderful way to spend time with the people you love, indulging on delicious treats in a beautiful setting.

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? I think when my husband and I decided to come travelling to Australia and we decided to make a life here. I love Australia. Your greatest regret? Wow, life is full of regrets, isn’t it? I would love to say I have no regrets but that wouldn’t be realistic. The good thing is I have learnt from all my mistakes and have come out a better person. One of my regrets is leaving my family and close friends back in the UK. I miss them all so much. What achievement are you most proud of? I would say Aimee Provence is my biggest achievement and even though it’s hard running a business, I’m so proud with how far I’ve come since opening it a year ago.

“We only have one life so live it the way you want and don’t let anyone drag you down”

What are you reading now? The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. It’s about staying in the present moment and avoiding thoughts of the past and the future, and just trying to stay positive. It’s another really good book to help with positive thoughts and good for anyone who suffers with anxiety. I do suffer with anxiety so these types of books really help.

Aimee Russell

Best day in your life? When I looked at my baby girl for the first time.

Best advice you’ve been given? The best advice I was ever told was to believe in yourself. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? I love being up in the mountains overlooking the beautiful view of the sea and landscapes. I go up to Maleny when I need some time out. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? I wouldn’t change anything. It’s so beautiful here; so different from city life and so much more relaxed. I do miss a good nightclub though.

You are happiest when? When I’m with the people I care most about. I love a good laugh, a night out on the town and a good margarita.

What frustrates you the most? Probably my husband when he doesn’t listen. How do you deal with your frustrations? I go to the spa or I have a glass of wine, or both. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything what would it be? Life is a rollercoaster. There are ups and downs. You win some, you lose some, and not everything is meant to be. We only have one life so live it the way you want and don’t let anyone drag you down. We are all here for a reason and one day that reason will be why life is worth living, so live life to its full, have fun, travel and fall in love. Tea or coffee? I drink way too much coffee but that’s easy when you own a cafe. I do love my French earl grey tea.

LOOK OUT: IT’S A RAIN BOMB! Storms can be electrifying events that elicit vastly different responses from people. While storm chasers excitedly grab their cameras, disaster management teams kick into gear and the rest of us batten down the hatches and watch Netflix. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

“When it comes to extreme weather events in our region, it’s not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’” Mayor Mark Jamieson

This lightning bolt is called a ‘crawler’, captured over Kings Beach, Caloundra in December 2016 IMAGE: PHIL STAATZ, PHILS_IMAGES ON INSTAGRAM


ith a flash of lightning and a rumble of thunder, Mother Nature unleashed a storm that began to quench the thirst of the drought-addled earth. The Sunshine Coast had seen no substantial rain for three months, placing the region in extreme danger of bushfires at the peak of the fire season and large fires took hold between the Bruce Highway and Aura, and west of Coolum as a result. As if on cue, what seasoned storm chaser and weather forecaster Jeff Higgins called a “rain bomb” hit, signalling the end of bushfire season and propelling the region into storm season. The months between October and March are when storm chasers like Dicky Beach resident Phil Staatz are in their element. A close call with a lightning bolt at Kings Beach last year has done little to deter the passionate 40-year-old landscape photographer who juggles his full-time work as a painter for Stylemaster Homes with the thrill of seeking out storms in a bid to capture the perfect image. “I’ve had a fascination for storms ever since I was little, but it wasn’t until I picked up photography 18 months ago that I found a desire to capture the moments within the storms,” Staatz tells My Weekly Preview. “The structure of the storms and the lightning is fascinating. There is a real beauty

10 My Weekly Preview | October 27, 2017

in storms, even though they look so angry, and it’s that raw power that I really love. You never know what you are going to capture.” Staatz often goes storm chasing with fellow photographers Joe Donovan and Anthony Lombardi and says the number one safety rule is to stay in front of, or beside the storm and never find yourself underneath it.

“I captured the shot and when lightning hits sand, it can form a glass sculpture under the sand, so after I’d shot a few more photos, I went over to try to find the glass sculpture. Even though I could see where the lightning had hit, I couldn’t find the sculpture.” Staatz hasn’t had to venture too far from home to capture his stunning images so far, with the Sunshine Coast putting on many

“Last year at Kings Beach, there was a big storm crossing over Caloundra that I was photographing, and a lightning bolt struck right on the beach…” Phil Staatz

“Of course, Mother Nature will do whatever she wants, so you’ve got to be ready for anything,” he says. “Last year at Kings Beach, there was a big storm crossing over Caloundra that I was photographing, and a lightning bolt struck on the beach right in front of me, about 200 metres away.

impressive storm displays. But this year, he hopes to head out west to Warwick, Beaudesert and Boonah, to where the storms often form, with the aim of snapping a colossal shelf cloud. “Our main rule with storm chasing is to never get your hopes up – you can drive five to eight hours storm chasing and sometimes

not get any photos. It’s all part of the game and it makes it sweeter when you do capture those amazing moments,” Staatz says. “It is more about being in the right moment at the right time and while radars and weather websites can help, there is still a lot of luck involved with it and for me, that’s where the challenge lies.” While the latest deluge to hit the Coast saw more than one month’s rainfall in one day at some locations, resulting in localised flooding, the only infrastructure damage were fallen powerlines at Bokarina and Wurtulla. But with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting as many as four tropical cyclones could make landfall across the east coast of Australia this storm season, residents need to start preparing for the weather events that have the potential to pack a forceful punch, as we saw when ex-tropical cyclone Debbie impacted the region in March this year. Sunshine Coast Council’s Acting Local Disaster Management coordinator Cathy Buck says the region’s Disaster Coordination Centre has become a “well-oiled machine”, with the ability to increase the day-to-day full-time staff of just three up to a massive 150 trained personnel if an alert level is activated. “These people have various roles including manning the council’s field coordination centre, collecting

23/10/2017 1:23:33 PM

information, dealing with requests for assistance and equipment, and coordinating with emergency agencies to make sure we are up to date with information. We also have field crews on the road fixing things, putting up signage and relaying information back to the coordination centre,” she says. “At the end of the day, each alert is different and they all have their challenges. We have an all-hazard approach, so we can take on anything that gets thrown at us.” Buck says while the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service is the lead agency when bushfires strike, they take on more of a support role in swift water rescue during severe weather events, with the council taking the lead role. Buck says she is pleased to see more residents heeding the vital message, “If it’s flooded, forget it,” but the recent death of 67-year-old grandfather Neil Andrews at Mary Creek, near Gympie, after his vehicle became stranded in swift floodwaters is a reminder of how important the message is. Being proactive is the key to success for storm safety and people don’t have to wait until a weather event is upon them to act. Buck says there are many things every household and business can do to prepare themselves now to minimise the potential for damage to their properties and to keep them safe. “One of the most important things is for people to have a plan and those who do are



Cathy Buck (centre) with Darryl Johnson, Cameron Herbet, Mayor Mark Jamieson, and Bill Haddrill urge residents to get prepared

• Severe thunderstorms can occur at any time of the year in Queensland. However, most strike between September and March. • South-east Queensland experiences the most damaging individual storms anywhere in Australia. • On average, a severe thunderstorm can produce 6000 lightning strikes every minute. • Each year, on average, severe storms are responsible for more damage (as measured by insurance costs) than tropical cyclones, earthquakes, floods, or bushfires. • Most thunderstorms do not reach the level of intensity needed to produce flash floods, cyclones, wind gusts, or hail, but they all produce lightning which can cause death, injury and damage. • In Australia, lightning accounts for five to 10 deaths and more than 100 injuries annually. More deaths occur when strong winds cause tree limbs to fall, debris to become projectiles, and small boats in open water to capsize.


The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) predicts “a typical number” of tropical cyclones to make an appearance in Australian waters during the 2017-18 storm season, which spans from now until March. The BOM’s long-range season forecast predicts around 11 tropical cyclones are expected to form around the country, usually off the coast of Western Australia and Queensland. The east-coast of Australia is expected to feel the direct or indirect impact of four tropical cyclones. “ENSO-neutral to weak La Niña-like conditions in the tropical Pacific Ocean and slightly warmer than average ocean temperatures to the north and east of Australia have influenced this year’s tropical cyclone outlook,” the BOM report says. “During ENSO-neutral years, the first tropical cyclone to make landfall over Australia typically occurs in late December. “In La Niña years, the first cyclone landfall typically occurs earlier, around the first week of December. “At least one tropical cyclone has crossed the Australian coast each season since reliable records began in the 1970s.” Although the chances of a tropical cyclone directly affecting the Sunshine Coast pale in comparison to what north Queenslanders face, the region can still be impacted. “Tropical lows that do not intensify into cyclones, or lows that are the remnants of older cyclones, can still cause widespread rainfall and dangerous flooding,” the BOM report says.

steps ahead to begin with,” she says. “The plan will help you to think about where you can go if you need to evacuate and if you don’t have friends or family who can accommodate you, knowing where the nearest evacuation centre is. What will you do with your pets? “People need to have emergency food and water supplies, enough to last them three days, in the cupboard. You will need long-life things that you won’t need to re-stock from the shop. And they will need to be able to tune into warnings and be aware of what’s going on around them.” Residents and business owners should also take time to clear leaves from gutters and prune branches away from windows and the roof. When a storm is approaching, people should scout the area around their homes and businesses to secure anything that has the potential to become an airborne missile if it is picked up by heavy winds. Local Disaster Management chair Mayor Mark Jamieson says we can’t afford to be complacent. “Recent events in our backyard have shown that the weather can change very quickly,” he says. “We only have to think back to the damage caused by ex-Cyclone Debbie when it moved through our region – although in many ways it was a lucky escape. “When it comes to extreme weather events in our region, it’s not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’.” Jamieson says a three-step approach of accessing Coast Alert, checking out the resources of Disaster Hub, and undertaking a small amount of preparation now will ensure you are ready in the event of a natural disaster.

A local family is sharing their personal story to help raise funds for a Wishlist initiative.

Alan George during the war and with daughter Paula (inset)


t’s 8.30am and Paula George greets her 94-year-old father Alan with a smile and military salute. On this day, Alan remembers his daughter’s name, but it’s not always the case despite the close bond the two share. “He has good days and bad days,” Paula admits. “He was very intelligent, which makes this so hard.” Alan sits comfortably in his chair, stacking wooden blocks at Glenbrook Residential Aged Care at Nambour. He is one of about a dozen people living in the facility with a complex dementia diagnosis. The veteran served in World War II in Darwin, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands before he became a senior diplomat based in Europe with his wife Cathe and five children. Now, the grandfather-of-four has vascular dementia, an incurable and progressive disease affecting his memory, reasoning and judgement, which he has lived with for 10 years. “I am sharing our story to support Wishlist’s goal of raising $30,000 for a specially designed dementia-friendly outdoor

area at Nambour Hospital and also a sensory garden here at Glenbrook. “Dad was always gardening. He lived through the Depression and grew fruit trees to provide for the family. This proposed project is so important, it’s so enriching,’’ Paula says. “My grandmother had Alzheimer’s Disease so I witnessed her staying with different relatives and everyone caring for her. I watched her struggle. There came a time with my dad that my mother reluctantly let people come into their home to help. “He stopped recognising mum and it broke her heart. She lost her partner, lost her soul mate.” They were married for 63 years, and Paula says the couple were separated only by illness. “Mum passed away six months ago, so I come in with my brother and greet dad when he’s having breakfast and sometimes we walk through the garden. “He is profoundly deaf due to concussion grenades in the war, but he still has understanding and insight. You grab those moments like a little gem. Unfortunately, you have nowhere to hide with this disease.” This Sunday, Wishlist will hold its first Teddy Bears’ Picnic to raise funds for the outdoor area to enhance patient care at Nambour Hospital’s Acute Restorative Care Unit. The team provides care for frail older patients with cognitive issues and is rallying the community to support the Just Better Care-sponsored event at Cotton Tree park. The innovative project will include a sensory garden, mini workshop and other stimulating therapeutic tools in an environment that will be a first on the Sunshine Coast for dementia patients.

The Teddy Bears’ Picnic is at Cotton Tree park on October 29 from 9am. The cost is $10, which includes food, drinks and activities voucher. Visit for tickets.

ART GOES UNDERGROUND Celeste Dawson has been an artist her whole life. But the 21-year-old’s creations have evolved immensely from the days of fingers holding crayons on butcher’s paper – she is now crafting stunning murals and mixed-media paintings. With her career poised to launch into high gear at the completion of a bachelor degree in visual arts just weeks away, Dawson has also uncovered a passion for curating. As a university assignment melded with an idea she had floated with Your Mates Brewing co-founder Matt Hepburn, an exhibition focused on social and political division began to take shape. With the assistance of Dean Ansell and Kourtney Sugden, Dawson is bringing the There is Division in the Basement exhibition to vibrant Nambour venue The Basement. “This event will give emerging artists a chance to exhibit free of charge and give them an opportunity to build connections and network while supporting a local charity,” Dawson says. “It’s a win-win situation. “Our main objective is to build art culture on the Sunshine Coast as there is so much potential here. We’d like to see art move into more accessible and approachable venues and to connect the community more with art.” Entry fees and funds raised from raffle tickets will go to local charity The Board Meeting, which helps families with children who have disabilities or are battling rare illnesses. All of the exhibiting artists have also agreed to donate 50 per cent of the sale price of their artworks to The Board Meeting. There is Division in the Basement is on at The Basement in Nambour on October 27 from 6-8pm. Entry is $5 at the door. Visit the There is Division in the Basement event on Facebook.

HIGH TEA RAISES OVER $50,000 TO FIGHT BREAST CANCER The Coastline MINI Garage High Tea by the Sea donated $52,776 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) following its sold-out event. The high tea, co-hosted by 4 Ingredients on October 8, saw Sunshine Coast locals win the two major raffle prizes. Samantha Dunne (pictured) won a Mini Ray valued at $31,000 and Stacey Christian won the $7500 morganite and diamond ring from Sunstate Jewellers Caloundra. NBCF state manager Jackie Horwill says the money raised from this year’s event means that 4 Ingredients has donated more than $213,000 to the foundation since they became platinum partners in 2014. “The NBCF is 100 per cent community funded and we are working towards zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030 by investing in life-changing research.”

25.8 PER CENT INTERIM PARKING SOLUTIONS FOR MOOLOOLABA The Sunshine Coast Council is preparing to proactively manage parking demand during the upcoming Brisbane Road car park project construction by adding another nearby parking option. Councillor John Connolly says a central Mooloolaba site on council-owned land at 26 Brisbane Road will be used as a temporary car park. This will deliver 27 interim car parks in addition to the 124 temporary spaces now available on the former Mooloolaba caravan park site. Once completed, the Brisbane Road car park will free up the foreshore area for community use.

New Queensland Police Service statistics show fraud offences in the Sunshine Coast District have increased by 25.8 per cent overall on last year’s figures. The QPS report found while there was a 67.2 per cent decrease in cheque fraud, and 25.7 per cent decrease in identity fraud, computer fraud increased by 54.7 per cent and credit card fraud also jumped by 39.8 per cent. Robberies of Sunshine Coast homes increased 12.7 per cent while robberies of businesses fell by 22.1 per cent.

Sunshine Coast lawyer Kyle Kimball says fake news is not a new phenomenon but a problem that has always existed in the media.

Sami Muirhead believes if everybody adopted the generous practice of ‘bucket filling’, the world would be a better place.


need some happy news to fill up my bucket after a few First-World blows over the past week. It was an incredibly stressful few days (I TOLD you this was not about world peace) trying unsuccessfully around the clock to buy Pink concert tickets before some smashing friends with good hearts and even better internet connections and empty credit cards finally managed to bag some seats to the Beautiful Trauma concert. Namaste, friends! I mean, Pink tickets were about as elusive to locate as an Uber at midnight when you just want to go home and binge eat and watch rubbish TV. My other problems revolved around the fact The Bachelorette ended and we have to somehow survive without tuning in to see grown men go gaga over Sophie Monk each week. The Gold Coast girl won me over early in the reality TV series with her honest answers, bogan accent, killer outfits, and razor sharp street smarts. Sophie is all that and a packet of chips, right? Surely Stu will not turn out a love rat? Hopefully Jarrod finds true love, and a watering can to revive his dead pot plant. And we all pray Apollo just takes off his shirt and pats some ponies. Again! So you can see why I need to refocus on all the good things going on and fill up my bucket with love and kindness. How good is this constant bucket filling talk? I recently went on a retreat all about

feelings and emotions and I am always reading the latest self-help book. But you know, I have found the ultimate free therapist who knows her stuff. You know who? My six-year-old daughter. Her divine little Grade 1 classmates sing a song about trying hard to be good bucket fillers each and every morning. It goes like this: “I am a bucket filler. N-N-N-N not a bucket dipper. Every day I consider how to be a bucket filler. I can do something nice for someone at school. Like tell them if I think that their drawing is cool. And if I see that someone is sad, I can help them feel a little bit less sad.” Bravo! It is genius. Why don’t our politicians work on this simple yet brilliant concept of bucket filling? Why don’t we all have literal buckets at work where we write little notes of love and positivity to our colleagues when they do cool things such as fix the photocopier or clean out the fridge? If we swapped hating each other on social media and in real life and judging and sending out poison energy and instead just worried about being good bucket fillers, the world would be a better place. My husband found my secret shopping stash in the boot of my car this week and was a little cranky so I turned to him and said, “Don’t be a bucket dipper”. I think at first he hoped it was some code for bedroom talk but when I explained what it actually means, he just continued to look frustrated. Happy bucket filling this week, folks.

lie told often enough becomes the truth. Vladimir Lenin I heard the term ‘post-truth world’ for the first time the other day. Something in the context of ‘fake news’. In the age of the internet, new words, expressions and aphorisms pop into our lexicon almost daily. I do sometimes wonder whether this ever-increasing word population is engineered by the faceless men that conspiracy theorists believe rule the world. After all, as old Comrade Lenin was getting at, the use of words can be a powerful tool with which to control the masses. Most likely though, I hope it is just pure chance and a consequence of nothing more sinister than a touch of corporate speak from pony-tailed ad execs sharing lattes on James Street. The internet, social media particularly, seems to encourage this proliferation of catchy phrases. Though much like the froth on top of the lattes, these words regularly lack any substance and should not be mistaken for the coffee itself. As a lawyer, I do find ‘post-truth world’ amusing. As though there ever was a world where the truth existed. That we have only now discovered the idea that those in power may be economical with the truth? This appalling abuse of public language is what leads to my current dilemma. This fake news phenomenon has me genuinely confused. I am still yet to work

out whether it is used with comedic irony or with genuine intent. Does news, by the very absence of the label ‘fake’, immediately become credible or even factual? Is it somehow the ‘truth’ now, simply as the result of a new narrative in public discourse? Brilliant marketing, really. But let’s not kid ourselves, it is not as though one can distinguish between fake news and ‘non-fake’ news. At an International Bar Association conference,

This fake news phenomenon has me genuinely confused held recently, I witnessed Julian Assange lay out the simple truth of modern ‘news’ and journalism. In an enlightening discussion he suggested that 90 per cent of world media is owned by six corporations. The fourth estate tells us it is a vital part of the machinery of western democracy. And even government pays lip service to this lofty ideal. Our media is necessary, so the story goes, to shine a light on the operations of government and keep power in check. One could be forgiven, though, for wondering just who is kept in power and on what the light is shining.

Fabulous Fenty Beauty The biggest news in the cosmetics industry over the past few months has been the release of Rihanna’s makeup range. Her aim was to create fun and functional products that suit a wide variety of skin tones and types, and after trying some of the products we give the range, which is also affordable, a big thumbs up.

A WOMAN’S MOST BEAUTIFUL AGE? A study has declared 38 is the age at which a woman is considered her most beautiful. Scientists have published a study in the JAMA Dermatology journal.

Back in 1990, 33.2 was considered the most beautiful, while today it’s 38.9 – the age of celebs like Katie Holmes and Kate Hudson. AAP

Where style, practicality and the outdoors meet The Paddington 25 display home located in Stockland’s new Caloundra South Aura development puts the dream of home ownership within reach for many. Porter Davis Queensland manager Josh Darling says the Paddington has been designed with first home buyers, young families and ageing families in mind. “It’s a home that can be adapted to what you need thanks to its incredible

amenity across a single level and silver level ‘iveable housing design standard.” Bright, fresh and contemporary with Porter Davis’ signature Scandinavia interior, the four bedroom, two bathroom, two living abode invites the outdoors in from almost every room. “It’s a comfortable, accomplished home with that coveted indooroutdoor feel. It’s giving everyone the chance to own their own home,’’ Darling says.

Paddington 25 with East Coast façade

A HOUSE TOUR The Paddington has been designed to make the great Australian dream of home ownership a reality for all. And, it’s a home that doesn’t compromise. It offers all the accommodation found in larger homes. With a sensational kitchen, dining and family area, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and the luxury of a second living space, the Paddington packs a lot in with the price tag you wouldn’t expect. From the street, the home has a striking street presence with its American inspired East Coast façade. Located at the front of the home is the luxe master bedroom featuring not one, but two walk-in robes, as well as a master ensuite with oversized shower and twin vanity, giving this home the sophistication not always seen in a home of this size. Continue down the striking entry and to the left is the engine room of the home – a large separate laundry with under bench space for the washing machine, a separate linen closet and mud room. The second and third bedrooms are located on the right-side of home. They

feature glazed sliding doors letting in sunlight and providing a verdant view. The family bathroom and separate WC is also perfectly placed in this zone. Bedroom four is located just across the hallway making it the perfect bedroom for a nursery, an older teenager or guests seeking extra privacy. The rear of the home is devoted to free-flowing open plan living and is a triumph in family-friendly design. It offers great flow between the kitchen and family room, casual and formal dining areas and maximises the view from the kitchen to the rumpus. In the kitchen, modern practicality prevails with an array of storage, hard wearing surfaces and two-sided, lightfilled walk-in pantry. The cleverly positioned rumpus is steeped in natural light. There’s also a sun-drenched deck off the rumpus, a magnet for the family with its own lounge setting and feature tree. Completing the home is the integrated alfresco seamlessly connecting the main living area with the outdoors making it an idyllic spot to linger with extended family and friends.

STAND OUT DESIGN FEATURES • Alfresco integrated into the rear corner to maintain large glazed areas to the rear of the home to maximise northern sunlight. • Large walk-in pantry tucked out of view making it the perfect secondary prep space and spot to hide dirty dishes. • Two large, zoned living areas giving the residents space to come together and be alone. • Well-appointed master bedroom with walk-in robe and ensuite. • Compact in length to fit on a shorter, more affordable 28 metre deep lot. • Features the accommodation of larger homes with intelligent floorplan design appealing to a wider range of buyers.

Justin Scattini, Ord Minnett Buderim.



olicymakers within the Trump administration recently revealed their much-anticipated framework for tax reform. Among the major recommendations outlined were: 1) A reduction in the US corporate tax rate from 35 per cent to 20 per cent (small businesses are to pay 25 per cent); 2) Collapsing the current seven personal income tax brackets to three: 12 per cent, 25 per cent and 35 per cent (although there were no details as to the incomes at which the brackets will kick in); 3) Roughly doubling the standard deduction but removing personal exemptions for individuals; 4) Allowing companies to write off investment expenses for five years; and 5) Shifting from a worldwide system to a territorial system of corporate tax, which basically applies taxes to domestic income only and exempts companies from being taxed on foreign profits when they are repatriated back to the US. With a lot of detail yet to be developed, the financial effect remains unclear. The bipartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB) in its preliminary analysis said the plan could

add $US2.2 trillion to deficits over a decade, comprised of $US5.8 trillion in tax cuts, offset partially by $US3.6 trillion in tax increases. With Republicans divided on whether to increase deficits, and at most may consider allowing a $US1.5 trillion increase, it would seem that securing support for the plan in its current form will be difficult. Our global research counterparts continue to expect the plan will be watered down to satisfy deficit hawks. US equities (particularly beneficiaries of tax reform) and the US dollar received a kick following the release of the blueprint. It remains to be seen how beneficial the corporate tax cuts will be, given it is likely certain business deductions will be eliminated. The US dollar should also benefit as optimism around the US economy builds, feeding into more confidence around monetary tightening. Further, the US dollar could benefit from capital inflows as profits held offshore are repatriated back into the country as a result of more attractive tax rates and system of taxing. Some estimate the stock of profits accumulated offshore could be as high as $US2.5 trillion. As Australia adopts a territorial tax system, income earned overseas by a company that is controlled by an Australian company is generally exempt from being taxed in Australia. Therefore, multinationals with subsidiaries under a US tax jurisdiction should receive the majority of the benefit from US tax rates being lowered. It is likely to encourage companies to expand their US operations and increase the appeal of US-based acquisitions.

Community gets involved with unique local series.

SCRAP business manager Nina Shadforth


unique drama series is being created right here on the Sunshine Coast. Behind-the-scenes work on the SCRAP Drama Series, a web-based series that pays homage to the Choose Your Own Adventure books from the ’80s and ’90s, has been underway since the start of the year and the project is gaining momentum. The innovative series is being developed by Mooloolaba resident Rachel Forsyth with a team of creatives, and more than 1000 people are following its progress on Facebook. “The whole show is about invigorating the film and television industry on the Sunshine Coast,” Forsyth says. “The council have actually made one of their KPIs to produce more film and TV on the Coast.

HALLOWEEN FAMILY FUN Australia Zoo is gearing up for a spooktacular event this Halloween. Children can dress up for the October 31 event and there will be plenty of treats on the day including free spooky facepainting until 11am, a fancy dress competition and trick or treating. There will be spooky games and the chance to carve your own Jack-o’-lantern. Australia Zoo is open from 9am to 5pm. Tickets can be purchased online or at the gate on arrival.


“It will ultimately be a training ground for our young people.” The plot follows a young man called Jonathan who moves into a Coast share house. As personalities in the house are revealed and controversial issues explored, viewers can cast their votes at the end of each episode to determine the course of the story. The option with the highest number of votes will be the direction the show will move in. SCRAP business manager Nina Shadforth says the name of the project came from the idea that all the characters in the show are essentially leftovers on a plate, or scraps, that are bundled in to live together. She adds this project will not only provide a creative opportunity for actors, film crews and those working behind the scenes, but could become an anchor to generate future opportunities for local talent. “It’s really important in terms of trying to keep industry professionals here on the Coast,” she says. “We want to trigger the interest, the need for greater investment in facilities, and encourage people to not only invest in our project, but also the wider film and television industry. We would like to see creative industries getting similar traction to the music industry, which is lively and healthy.” To find out more, check out the group’s Facebook page.

We all love our Sunshine Coast environment and in the past year, thanks to the Environment Levy, we have been able to invest $10 million in our natural surroundings. If you haven’t checked it out, I invite you to go to council’s website and take a look at the interactive Environment Levy Annual Report which does a great job in telling the story of how we are protecting and enhancing what we have here in our region. Much of the work is undertaken by dedicated volunteers in a range of groups and council programs. In 2016-17, there were 97 landholders on the Coast who received a total of $304,000 in Landholder Environment Grants for natural resource management projects on privately owned properties. We have more than 900 Land for Wildlife properties where the property owners are managing and restoring almost 10,000 hectares of habitat. Just over half a million dollars went to 22 community groups dedicated to the environment and conservation. This is just a small snapshot of how the Environment Levy is helping our region. It’s a great investment in our future.

BUILDING HOT SPOTS Bells Reach and Baringa have formed a new ‘hot spot’, significantly contributing to the Sunshine Coast’s overall construction boom, according to our annual building approvals heat map. Over the past 12 months, the two suburbs have recorded $185 million in building approvals. The updated heat map identifies continued high levels of concentrated development approvals within the Sunshine Coast Enterprise Corridor, which stretches from Sunshine Coast Airport to Caloundra South. Maroochydore, Mooloolaba and Kawana have experienced more than 650 building application approvals over 12 months. Peregian Springs and Peregian Breeze to the north of the corridor have had a significant number of approvals, valued at more than $55 million. The established ‘railway towns’, particularly Nambour and Beerwah, are also experiencing strong growth. You can view the heat map on council’s website.

Best-selling Australian author Judy Nunn will speak about her new book release, Sanctuary, at The Events Centre, Caloundra, on Wednesday, November 8 from 7pm. Special guest MC is popular radio personality and column writer Sami Muirhead. Cost is $25 per person. Book via council’s website.


SPACE FOR ARTISTS The popular Maroochydore Library Artspace has provided a venue for a number of local artists to exhibit their work over the past year. Artists are now invited to submit an exhibition proposal to be a part of the 2018–19 exhibition calendar. For more information, go to gallery.

RIVER MOUTH FEEDBACK A recommendation from the independent Maroochy River Estuary Consultation Group to extend the timeframe to consider groyne renewal options at the Maroochy River has been accepted by council. The extra time, through to March next year, will ensure local residents and community groups have the opportunity to make formal representations to the group before it compiles its report.

NRL and Super Rugby fever will hit the Sunshine Coast Stadium in an exciting fortnight of action in February next year. And you will soon be able to buy tickets to watch some of the best in the two codes from Australia and New Zealand. Three high-profile pre-season games have been locked in. A Super Rugby pre-season clash between the Brumbies and Chiefs will kick off the schedule on February 14. It will be followed by two NRL pre-season trials on consecutive Saturdays – Canterbury Bulldogs against Canberra Raiders (February 17) and Gold Coast Titans against New Zealand Warriors (February 24). It’s the first time two NRL trials have been played in the one year on the Sunshine Coast, while the Brumbies versus Chiefs clash is expected to feature both Wallabies and All Blacks representatives. We know the Warriors are a big drawcard in our region, attracting a record crowd of more than 10,000 for their trial with Melbourne Storm earlier this year, and it’s the first chance we’ve had to host the Titans, Bulldogs and Raiders in our backyard.

The best of the region’s housing design and construction industry have been recognised at the HIA-iLandscape Housing Awards.


he Sunshine Coast’s multimilliondollar property industry was celebrated earlier this month when the Housing Industry Association hosted its Sunshine Coast/Wide Bay Housing Awards at Novotel Twin Waters. The awards recognise building and design excellence and are known for raising the bar in contemporary design, construction, innovation and housing technology. The winner of the major award on the night was Dave Becker Constructions. The local builder took out Sunshine Coast Home of the Year with a superbly designed and custom-built home in the hinterland. Joining Dave Becker Constructions were Aria Property Group (apartment complex), Mosaic Construction (renovation, residential interior decorate), SX Constructions (GreenSmart sustainable home) and Planet Homes (display home). Other major award winners on the night will move on to compete at the HIA Queensland Housing Awards, which will be held on November 3. Grant McDonald Homes won the My Weekly Preview and AD Marketing People’s Choice Award, again proving its popularity, as it is the third year the company has collected this award. HIA Sunshine Coast branch manager Stuart Collins congratulated all the winners on their work. “Each year the HIA Sunshine Coast/Wide Bay Housing Awards attract an outstanding array of entries across a number of different housing forms with this year being no exception,’’ he says. “It is difficult enough selecting finalists, let alone winners, such is the high calibre of the entries received this year. “This healthy level of competition ensures that new standards in design,

workmanship and innovation are achieved across all award categories and this has resulted in success at both the state and national level. “The awards are a strong statement of the commitment and dedication of HIA members in Queensland to delivering exceptional housing outcomes that will stand the test of time,” Collins tells My Weekly Preview. “The projects on show undoubtedly demonstrate that the industry has once again risen to the challenge. “Without the involvement of HIA’s many partners, important industry events like this would not be possible and we thank them for their contribution in recognising excellence within industry.”

GOING WITH THE FLOW Dave Becker Constructions was the big winner on the night, collecting the prestigious Home of the Year award. Dave Becker Constructions was engaged by its clients to create the lodge with an Australian feel. A focus of the designer was to incorporate the spectacular views of the area and to incorporate stone, glass and timber

into the project. The brief was for the home to feel warm and have a number of transition zones that blended the same styles from inside to outside. The judges said the project was “a finely detailed American-style mountain lodge with an Australian twist, maximising panoramic views over the Glass House Mountains”.

THE WINNERS The big winners of the night included: SSC HOME OF THE YEAR: Dave Becker Constructions PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD: Grant McDonald Homes SSC CUSTOM BUILT HOME OF THE YEAR: Dave Becker Constructions SSC DISPLAY HOME OF THE YEAR: Planet Homes SSC RENOVATIONS/ADDITION: Mosaic Construction APPRENTICE OF THE YEAR: Reece Cleeton SSC KITCHEN OF THE YEAR: Juro Design SSC BATHROOM OF THE YEAR: Dayne Lawrie Constructions For a full list of winners go to

McDonald’s Buderim property secured the title. It’s a home that company director Grant McDonald says he is “thrilled with”.

SAVVY STYLING In the five years since launching her Simple & Savvy home staging and property styling business, Catherine Craig has impressed her peers and clients with her work. And this year she took out the Property Styling category at this HIA awards for this three-bedroom Marcoola apartment. The unit features neutral tones that reflect the Sunshine Coast lifestyle and the apartment’s position. Craig incorporated light-coloured fabric sofas, oak tables and accessories to complement the grey floor tiles and grey cabinetry.





This Buderim home was given a new life thanks to SX Constructions, who took out the Renovation/Addition $300,001-$600,000 award category. The builders walk us through the project.

Inspired by colonial American architecture, this Buderim home offers its own twist on the Hamptons style with abundant natural light streaming in through the double-storey windows, which overlook the pool. The elevated, leafy outlook is complemented by natural finishes such as dry stack stone, American oak floors, white mahogany decking and a wood-burning fireplace.

This Matira Developments property took out the Display Home up to $300,000 category. Trading as Hotondo Homes, the company has a 38-year history and knows what it takes to build a new home. The award-winning Jagera 250 property in Pelican Waters is a three-bedroom family home with two bathrooms, two living areas and a study.

HIA would like to acknowledge the support and contribution of its major partner iLandscape and its supporting partners. HIA would also like to congratulate all finalists and winners.

Mosaic Construction’s Peregian Beach property wowed the judges in the Renovations/Addition category. The Lorikeet House was awarded the number one gong in the category, taking home the project of the year title. A SNAPSHOT: Lorikeet House is a complete renovation and substantial extension to a Peregian Beach house. The home had a strong spatial quality in the main upper-floor living areas and simple geometric forms in the existing house. It also offered a strong connection with the beach environment immediately to the east. These factors were the major drivers in the decision to keep the existing building largely intact and simply surround the structure with new contemporary and complementary building forms. A series of simple connected box-like masses were used in the new works, which allow an understated integration of the home into the existing streetscape and protection from the western summer sun. The beach facade of the building remains dominated by the form of the existing ’70s beach house, with a contemporary deck and pavilion extension to the northern side. The main challenge in this project was the creation and integration of the substantial new areas of the home. It was important to respect and retain the feeling of the existing home, and as such careful attention to all thresholds when moving from one part of the building to another were painstakingly considered and detailed.

Planet Homes is no stranger to accolades, having secured a total of 17 awards in the past six years. And now, the group has yet another under its belt, after the company won the Display Home of the Year title at this year’s HIA awards for its Pelican Waters property. Planet Home’s Jason Bowker says winning the award was a proud moment. The home is built around tropical internal garden courtyards, and has an integrated pool, a comprehensive outdoor kitchen, generous outdoor living decks and patios and a huge log-fired feature fireplace.

BIGGER & BETTER Toyota has delivered on its promise with the impressive new Kluger, writes Peter Atkinson, AAP.


ore power, less fuel. As a concept, that’s right up there alongside “eat cake, lose weight”. But that’s the claim being made by Toyota about its recently updated family SUV, the Kluger. OK, the numbers aren’t earth-shattering. Power is up by 17 kilowatts while its average thirst drops by about 10 per cent into single figures for the first time. But it’s evidence, that despite dominating the Australian car market, the Japanese giant is still focused on delivering more value for

money than ever. And in the case of the new Kluger, that’s quite an achievement. The Kluger has been a staple of Toyota’s SUV range since 2003 – pushing 150,000 sales in that time. But Toyota isn’t resting on its laurels. It has piled in more safety, upgraded equipment and improved driving dynamics to deliver what must be the best Kluger ever. This current model is a far cry from the original, although the recipe of V6 petrol engine and choice of two-wheel or all-wheeldrive remains. However, while the Kluger has become bigger and more macho with each

model, its driver profile has probably become the opposite – most Klugers you’ll see on the road have a female at the wheel. That’s where the Kluger provides a neat fit into the Toyota range – bringing family-sized space and practicality but without the full off-road capability of its similarly sized but more rugged siblings, the Prado or LandCruiser. This latest version is a mid-model refresh of the third-generation Kluger, launched in 2013. It’s by far the most impressive-looking model to wear the badge with its square, chromy grille and imposing dimensions. But one thing that hasn’t changed about the Kluger is that sense of urban refinement it brings to the SUV market. It doesn’t deliver the same luxurious feel as some rivals in this space, but in terms of practicality, reliability and sheer driving refinement, it remains a compelling package. We tested the Kluger in its ultimate form – the Grande model with optional all-wheeldrive. Put it all together and that means a price tag of almost $70,000 plus onroads – not cheap, by any means. But it offers a substantial amount of car – not just in size but also in functionality – for the money. The Kluger range starts with the entrylevel GX at $43,550, which gets seven airbags, reversing camera and parking sensors, stability and traction control, a new eightinch display screen, sat nav and digital audio.


The mid-range GXL (at $53,550) gets the biggest equipment upgrade, with three-zone climate control, keyless entry and start, leather trim and heated seats. The Grande adds plenty more kit, too – active cruise control with autonomous emergency braking, moonroof, ventilated and heated leather seats with electric adjustment, rear-seat entertainment system plus a suite of electronic safety aides. Despite its size, the Kluger is respectably nimble and delivers surprisingly responsive performance. We were also impressed with its refinement and all-round quietness. More power with less fuel – just like Toyota promised. If only it were that simple in all walks of life.

TOYOTA KLUGER GRANDE HOW BIG? Having started its life as a mid-sized SUV, the Kluger now has seating for seven and an acre of internal space. A real family rig. HOW FAST? This latest iteration has squeezed 218KW out of its 3.5-litre V6, which when coupled to the new eight-speed auto gets it up and rolling with surprising responsiveness. HOW THIRSTY? Another benefit of the new transmission – it will sip as little as 9.1L/100km for two-wheel-drive variants, and a still-decent 9.5l/100km for the all-wheel-drive Grande. HOW MUCH? Prices start at $43,550 plus onroads, while the flagship Grande is almost $30,000 more expensive.

stunning treehouse adventure playground is the latest colourful, family-friendly addition to open at Aura. An eye-catching 12-metre metallic tree, adorned with brightly coloured birds, butterflies and leaves, is the centrepiece of a five-metre high state-of-the-art climbing frame, which features two elevated wooden ‘treehouses’ linked by a rope bridge. There are climbing bars to shimmy up, and a rope ladder that leads to three different tunnel slides with a choice of heights, to cater to children of varying ages and entertain even the most daring youngsters. The nearby swing set includes a toddler swing and a bird’s nest swing, to make sure the littlest visitors will be entertained. Stockland regional manager Ben Simpson says the new playground on Lukin Terrace is already proving popular with youngsters whose parents are visiting the new Aura Display Village. The finishing touch to the playground is an art installation in the form of a 9.5-metrehigh, vibrant pink tree, featuring bicycles instead of branches. “With a network of more than 200 kilometres of cycleways on completion, Aura’s vision is to become a cycle city and this striking art piece reflects that vision – we want

to encourage Aura’s younger generation to get on their bikes,” Simpson says. The treehouse playground is the second park to open in recent months at Aura, following the opening of the popular Pedal Park, located on Steiner Crescent. Pedal Park features two circular bike tracks – a 134-metre beginners’ track with road traffic signs and a tunnel, and a 145-metre track with ramps to test the skills of more advanced riders. A nine-metre-high climbing tower and slide has recently been added to Pedal Park, which also features a netball/basketball half-court, shelters and barbecues. The parks are two of many recreational areas proposed for Aura and part of an ongoing commitment to provide a range of recreational parks for all ages and abilities.

with MWP’s man in the water

As I write, this is the update: Julian is progressing and a few contenders have been eliminated. But boy, they have sent a few heats out at dead low tide with a straight swell. It doesn’t seem fair when a world title is on the line. When the tide has been right the waves have been amazing. Now for you punters – sunshine and lollipops are back with the weather and swell is only small. Enjoy what you can. It’s good to see common sense prevailed last week with council removing the decomposing whale carcass at Wurtulla. It would have been the biggest attraction for sharks, ending only one way. Oh, huge surf board sale at Moffat Beach with boards from $300. Early bird gets the worm!

Joint ventures and relationship improvements are on the table, but don’t spoil a productive week by being impulsive and putting your foot firmly in your mouth! Think before you speak, and consult with others before you make an important move.

It’s the perfect week to organise your work space, so it increases your creativity and boosts your productivity. Saturday’s full moon (in your sign) emphasises your practical side, as a project is finally completed (or a problem comes to a head).

Don’t let your spontaneous enthusiasm (for an exciting new project or joint venture) overtake your ability to knuckle down and get the job done. If you promise more than you can deliver, then others will just end up feeling disappointed.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)


Family and work is favoured, as Saturn stabilises relationships and boosts productivity. Someone may question your aspirations for the future though. Time to ask yourself “Am I full of big dreams but short on practical details?”

This week Venus and Mars provide opportunities to make fortuitous connections and sharpen your communication skills. With the full moon illuminating your career zone, find ways to inspire others and shine more brightly on the job.

Attached Virgo – the sun and Neptune activate your relationship zone, so do your best to add some romantic sizzle. Single? The stars favour finding your soul mate online. (The perfect partner doesn’t exist! Everyone has weaknesses.)




Expect a week of topsy-turvy extremes. Saturn helps stabilise a relationship so that you start to feel more certain about the future. But then Uranus comes along and stirs things up! So do your best to find some agreeable middle ground.

The planets encourage you to approach challenges with plenty of intelligence and resilience. Be inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe, “I’ve been terrified every moment of my life and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.”

You’re keen to be in charge but are you being the boss – or just plain bossy? Saturn and Venus encourage you to utilise your leadership skills in disciplined and diplomatic ways that result in cooperation rather than consternation!




With the help of diplomatic Venus and proactive Mars, strive to anticipate (and smooth over) work-place hassles before they actually happen. Friday’s Venus/ Saturn connection is fabulous for love, money, career and business.

The full moon heralds a house move, home renovation, family fiasco, uninvited guests or some other kind of domestic drama. Whatever happens, strive to get the balance right between your public life and your private responsibilities.

The current stars favour romance, creativity and spirituality. But are your aspirations ambitious enough? There’s no room for false modesty or passive procrastination! It’s a terrific week to enjoy talking, texting, posting, promoting, socialising and circulating.

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

POCKET CHANGE Richard O’Leary wants our currency to reflect our culture, not that of the UK.


was walking into the shops the other day when I saw a young woman drop a five-cent coin. She paused a nanosecond before continuing on her way. In that moment of indecision, you could just about see her brain go through the mathematics of the situation – is it worth the time and effort to bend down and pick up the runt of our currency? Apparently not. And a recent survey shows she’s not on her own. It found 93 per cent of Australians have thrown away a five-cent coin for being annoying to carry. I assume the figure would be even higher if they asked whether or not you would keep on walking if you dropped one. It also revealed the average Aussie “loses” about $2.10 in change each month. For Millennials you can times that figure by five. And men are

looser with their change than women. The situation has become so bad that the Chief Executive of the Royal Australian Mint has predicted the copper and nickel echidna will become extinct within 10 years, joining the frilled-neck lizard and feathertail gliders in Australia’s shrapnel scrapheap. At this rate, it won’t be long before our national Mint culls the kangaroo, emu, platypus and superb lyrebird from our coins as well. A bit like the woman at the beginning of this story, I’m not particularly attached to our non-note currency, although I do have fond

memories of poker nights with school mates, catching skyscrapers of coins off my elbow, and a weird game we invented on a Melbourne Cup trip where we tossed dollars against any wall we could find, with the owner of the closest coin collecting the loot. But I do hope the Aboriginal Elder on our two-dollar coin survives the shake-up over the next few decades or so, the figure inspired by an Ainslie Roberts drawing of Gwoya Jungarai, stands tall among those who cover our currency. It’s the figurehead on the obverse of our different forms of currency that I would happily see removed, having a British woman on every Australian note and coin seems a perverse form of PR against a republic. The latest poll on the matter sees supporters of a republic just in front of those who prefer the status quo – it’s so close in fact, you could say it’s a toss of a coin.
