THE FIRST WORD
ISSUE 487 February 16, 2018
FROM THE EDITOR
Women’s empowerment group WINDO is launching the Sunshine Coast and Noosa’s first International Women’s Week Festival from March 5 to 11. The program includes a major entertainment event on International Women’s Day, March 8, called Let’s Hear It For The Girls. Held at The J, this event includes Husna Pasha, who has featured on The Project and Compass, former Project Runway judge Sarah Gale as well as live entertainment by local performer Andrea Kirwan (pictured). We have a double pass to give away, valued at $70.
ragic circumstances have a tendency to bring people together. In the case of loss, human spirit shines through, our sense of community and our desire to offer support coming to the surface. In January, Maleny’s Stanley family, suffered an unimaginable pain when their 17-year-old daughter Serena died from head injuries sustained when she fell from the horse she was training. The outpouring of support and love from the Sunshine Coast community has been nothing short of wonderful. This week, Serena’s father River spoke with MWP’s Leigh Robshaw about how grateful the family is for the financial, physical and mental support that has been shown to them. River spoke with pride of his daughter, who has been described as a vibrant and kind-hearted young woman. “Serena was always grateful for everything, she never asked for anything,” he says. “She embraced life and lived it to the fullest.” The MWP team extend our sincere condolences to the family. Read about how you can offer your support to the Stanleys on page 24. In this edition, we also speak with My Kitchen Rules contestants Ash and Matty following their culinary adventure on national TV. Plus, we go down the path a little less travelled in this week’s feature story as we talk to three local conspiracy theorists about their interesting beliefs. Until next week, take care.

WASTE NOT, WANT NOT Where do you live? Peregian Springs. First job? As a 16-year-old I was a cashier/assistant at the department store JC Penney in Auburn, California. What are you currently working on? I started and continue to co-ordinate OzHarvest. I am in a stage of trying to find work/office space for a program that has, over the past three-and-a-half years, been run out of my study and garage. Your family includesâ€Ś Three sisters in the US, my wonderful Aussie husband Chris Mead and our two cats Emma and Rupert. First car? A Ford Malibu. Favourite book? In my early years of university, it was Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. After university it was Let History Judge by Roy Medvedev about Stalin and the consequences of his rule. In my romantic and wanderlust period, it was a tie between The Once and Future King and Gone With The Wind. Then, there are the timeless gems like To Kill a Mockingbird and A Tale of Two Cities. For pure escapism there is nothing like a Robert Ludlum and John le CarrĂŠ novel.
What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Peregian Beach village â€“ it is a real community and I love the vibrancy and the sense of family there. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? The traffic congestion over the holidays â€“ particularly around Noosa. Best day in your life? There are too many days that are best days. If I had to pick one I think it would be the day I knew that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with my future husband. I felt totally in love and loved. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? What comes to mind is the day my father died â€“ I was 21 years old, ready to go out into the world and find my bearings. With his death, I felt like I had lost my rudder. I then began a life journey that took me in directions I had not expected to go.
â€œIt is okay to be afraid, but donâ€™t let the fear stop you from taking chances and living your lifeâ€?
What are you reading now? Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I went on a TV binge and saw all episodes on an overseas flight.
n a i r a t i n a m u h
Michele Lipner BIO
Michele Lipner co-ordinates OzHarvest Sunshine Coast â€“ a food rescue program that seeks to keep quality excess food out of landfill by diverting it to local charities and community organisations. Since August 2014, the organisation has redistributed more than 115 tonnes of food (the equivalent of about 345,000 meals). Ms Lipner has a background in international aid and spent many years overseas in conflict zones.
Favourite song? There are actually two that immediately come to mind â€“ Jackson Browneâ€™s Load Out/Stay. It reminds me of all the good friends I made â€“ and then said goodbye to â€“ when I worked overseas with NGOs and the United Nations. The second song makes me feel like I can do anything â€“ Queenâ€™s Somebody to Love. Best advice youâ€™ve been given? Think of your life as a river â€“ no matter what obstacles may be in your way â€“ like a river, you will always get to where you need to go. So go with the flow.
What achievement are you most proud of? Getting my PhD, my work overseas in international aid and development, setting up OzHarvest on the Sunshine Coast, and having a solid marriage.
You are happiest when? I am walking on a beach with my husband. What frustrates you the most? Ignorance and intolerance. How do you deal with your frustrations? That depends on the nature of the frustration â€“ I can swallow it, exercise, play golf, get angry, have a glass of wine or deal with it head on. If you could tell your 18 year-old self anything what would it be? Believe in yourself and take chances. It is okay to be afraid, but donâ€™t let the fear stop you from taking chances and living your life. Tea or coffee? Definitely coffee â€“ double shot flat white.

THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE A faked moon landing, lizard people vying for power, and an Earth that is flat – for those who believe in conspiracy theories, the ignorant masses are being lied to, and it’s time our eyes were opened to the truth. So, what do you believe? WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
“I feel sorry for the astronauts that they had to buy into this lie” Greg Gardner, above right
ona Van Kampen is a loving father and husband and like most men, wants the best for his family. The licensed builder and carpenter works hard to support his family and worries about their future, but that’s where the similarities between Mr Van Kampen and the average bloke end, because he’s one of a growing number of conspiracy theorists who believe we’re being lied to on a massive scale. Mr Van Kampen is a flat Earther. He believes the Earth could be the shape of a pizza and in the centre is the north pole, while the south pole encircles its circumference, with an impenetrable Game of Thrones-like ice wall called Antarctica circling the perimeter, which no one has ever crossed. The sun and moon are much closer to the Earth than science would have us believe, and take turns spinning around the planet. For the flat Earth theory to be possible, other conspiracies need to come into play. Gravity is a hoax – it’s merely magnetic forces and the weight of objects that make them fall to the ground. The Big Bang never happened and photos of the Earth from space are fake.
description of the universe with the Earth at the centre. “I believe the Earth is flat and stationary, but I’m not sure whether it’s a circle or square, or if it’s contained in a dome-like structure,” he says. “It’s only been 500 years that we’ve had the idea the Earth is a ball. Prior to that, everyone knew it was a flat Earth. “People often ask me why the Earth looks curved from a plane,” he says. “The curvature is because you’re looking out a curved window. The horizon is right at eye level. If you stand at the beach and look out to the horizon, it’s right at your eye line. If you go to the mountains and look at the ocean, the horizon rises and meets your eye level again. “The higher you go, the horizon rises. If you’re on a ball, the horizon should lower, it should curve away from you.” Flat Earthers believe world powers are manipulating the masses into doing their will. Mr Van Kampen has a deep mistrust of our government, though he sends his two primary school children to a state school. “We’re going with the state school system while they’re still young because we don’t
“It’s only been 500 years that we’ve had the idea the Earth is a ball. Prior to that, everyone knew it was a flat Earth” Bona Van Kampen
NASA is a propaganda machine, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin a pair of fibbers. Mr Van Kampen is one of the admins on a Facebook page called Official Flat Earth Globe Discussion, which has more than 82,000 members and is growing rapidly. In the past 30 days, 8465 members have joined. “We get hundreds of members requests a day,” he says. “We have to ask three basic questions. Why do you want to join? Do you think the earth is flat? Do you promise to respect the rules? The rules are: no cursing, no swearing, no insulting people. We accept anyone – about half of our members wouldn’t be flat Earthers, they’re just curious.” Mr Van Kampen discovered the flat Earth theory in 2015 and began to have doubts about the ‘heliocentric’ system – the astronomical model in which the Earth and planets revolve around the sun at the centre of the solar system, first proposed by Nicolaus Copernicus in the 16th century. Mr Van Kampen found discrepancies and gradually came around to the ‘geocentric’ model – a

want to outcast them,” he says. “There’s a globe in every classroom. I don’t mind because I know when they’re older, we can explain this stuff to them better and they can make up their own minds.” Mr Van Kampen says he receives a range of reactions to his views. “When I told my father he said ‘what a load or rubbish, you’re a complete idiot’,” he says. “Other people are curious about it. Hostile responses don’t really bother me. When people learn something new, anger is usually the first reaction. I just try to explain it and keep calm.” Mr Van Kampen says for proof the Earth is flat, you need only look at the UN flag, which is a flat Earth map. “I think it’s a great deception,” he says. “If you can get people to believe something that’s not true, it’s easier to manipulate them. “It comes down to globalism. If you have a look at globalism, it’s pretty bad – people are starving, paying high taxes. Everyone is working to pay bills for globalist elites. We’ve myweeklypreview.com.au

FEATURE STORY become debt slaves. I’d love to see everybody live in harmony and peace and sustainably and everyone be able to prosper and be able to have a roof over their head and food on the table and jobs they enjoy doing. Pretty much the opposite of what we have now.” When asked whether he’s a bit paranoid, Mr Van Kampen says no. He’s just trying to feel a “little less used by the establishment”. “I find it empowering, having the awareness of what’s going on. I feel like I was walking around hypnotised before. This makes more sense than the official story. Just because somebody told me at school the Earth was round, it doesn’t mean it’s the truth. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see the moon landing looks fake.” Caloundra photographer Greg Gardner agrees. The father of two says he can tell by the lighting in the moon landing photographs they were taken in a studio. “Someone said to me, ‘you’re a photographer, have a look at the photos’,” he says. “Within five minutes of looking at the photos, that was it. NASA said the photos were lit with the sun and that’s why you can’t see the stars, because the sun is a lot brighter. But the cute thing is, you never see the sun in any of the photos. Most of the images you do see are very much backlit. That doesn’t make sense with one big light source – multiple light sources, yes. The shadows are not stable. “When you look behind the foreground subject, the background lighting is not consistent with the foreground lighting. It’s right in your face, it’s hilarious. “For me, the funniest thing is the horizon line – it’s so short. There’s one hill in the background and that’s it. They could have shot back into the sun – just give us a sun flare. There’s a famous shot with the studio light flare. I know what a studio light flare looks like, and that’s what it looks like. “I think everyone knows it was the space race and the Yanks wanted to be the first ones there,” he says. “It’s a bit of a laugh – I feel sorry for the astronauts that they had to buy into this lie, I really do.” While Mr Van Kampen and Mr Gardner are on the same page when it comes to the fake moon landings, that’s where their
common ground ends. “I think flat Earth theory is funny,” Mr Gardner says. “You literally have to get up into a plane and you work it out for yourself. It’s pretty obvious it’s round.” Flaxton woman Zoe Rieck also thinks the flat Earthers are a bit “out there” but harbours a conspiracy theory of her own: she’s convinced the world is run by lizards. She is a follower of English conspiracy theorist David Icke, who says the British Royal family, along with other powerful families, are part of a
Zoe Rieck shape-shifting, power-hungry race of reptilian aliens from another planet. And he’s not the only one. In 2013, US company Public Polling Policy conducted a national survey that revealed more than 12 million Americans agree shape-shifting alien lizards control the world. Ms Rieck paid $150 to see Mr Icke talk in Brisbane during his 2016 Australian tour. “It was a fascinating talk,” she says. “I don’t believe they’re actually a lizard as such, it’s their energy fields that merge with human energy fields. They love power and want to be in positions of power, then they can do whatever they please. They can create wars, which creates pain, fear and trauma, which they feed off. “I don’t believe they’re all bad. I saw some at a bar in Nambour with green scaly skin. They were basically the same height and size of people but had reptilian skin. I didn’t feel
they were there to do anything bad; they were just like you and I at the pub. “Other people have said to me they’ve experienced reptilian encounters. It can’t be a coincidence that so many people have had some kind of experience with it.” In his 2015 book, Suspicious Minds: Why We Believe Conspiracy Theories, UK researcher Dr Rob Brotherton says we are all conspiracy theorists to some degree. Suspicion is hard wired into our brains for survival reasons and buying into conspiracy theories helps us mitigate our sense of powerlessness and uncertainty in the world. Ms Rieck says: “I get where people would think that. Definitely things can be made up by the human mind to cope. The way I see it is, I just want to know the truth. I’m not interested in if I feel powerful or powerless. I just want to know what’s going on in our society, because there’s something wrong.” University of the Sunshine Coast senior lecturer in psychology Dr Rachael Sharman agrees with Dr Brotherton: “You only need to look at human history, with things like the burning of witches, to see we’ve always been into superstition. It is part of that desire to control our environment. That’s what it comes back to from an evolutionary point of
view. We did rain dances so the crops would survive – there’s a survival mechanism at the base of this. In drawing conclusions, some of these will be correct and some will be wildly inaccurate. “Belief in conspiracy theories is tapping into an emotional need, and emotion tends to override reason. It’s part of the human condition to be very curious, to try to figure out how A is connected to B. We’re striving to understand those relationships better and we’ve been doing it since the dawn of time. That’s how we’ve progressed as a species – it’s not all negative.” While conspiracy theories may seem like a bit of harmless fun, Dr Sharman has a word of warning: “Conspiracy theories can be a danger to society. A really obvious one is the anti-vaxxers. They’re convinced doctors and pharmaceutical companies are out to kill us. If enough people fail to vaccinate, we get victims like newborn children. If someone believes the moon landing was faked, do they not then believe in the technology of rockets? Where does that thinking lead? “On the face of it, it doesn’t sound like it causes harm, but in the long term, it just might. It could relate to a whole lot of consequences down the track.”

AUSTRALIA’S FIRST MASS WEDDING ON OUR DOORSTEP Australia’s first mass wedding is happening on the Coast on August 8. Registrations are now open for The Wedding Crush, a fundraiser for My Wedding Wish, which was founded in 2013 and has gifted over 20 weddings with a total value of $600,000 to couples where one or both have a terminal diagnosis. My Wedding Wish founder Dr Lynette Maguire says Australia’s first mass wedding, which will be held on the Sunshine Coast on August 8, will give a limited number of couples a cheaper alternative to forking out the average $30,000 most spend on a wedding, and they will be firmly in the spotlight as they make history. For more information, visit theweddingcrush.com.au.
GYMNASTS SET TO MOVE INTO NEW PREMISES It has been nine months since the Maroochy Beach Gymnastics club’s premises burnt down. Members are now anticipating a move from temporary facilities at Kunda Park into the new and expanded $2.5-million facility on Wises Road in Buderim. The new facility, which will be completed in a matter of weeks, includes a cafe, a second training floor and extra stadium seating in an upstairs viewing area. Club president Peter Dwan says insurance covered the rebuild, but the club had to fundraise in order to afford the temporary relocation to Kunda Park. It now needs to raise a further $200,000 for new equipment to fit out the larger space.
Actventure, the integrated active lifestyle destination being developed on Steve Irwin Way at Glenview, is set to begin bulk earthworks, with the final stages of negotiations for the contract underway. The multimillion-dollar contract includes 150,000 cubic metres of cut and fill for the project, including carving out a large lagoon and terraforming its surrounding area. The existing waterways will be sculpted to maintain their natural beauty and fully maintain green areas. Three Sunshine Coast contractors are on the short list and a final decision is expected soon.

CLIMATE CHANGE COULD THREATEN COAST TOURISM The Climate Council’s Icons at Risk: Climate Change Threatening Australian Tourism report, which was released last week, predicts that the Sunshine Coast’s tourism industry could be affected if climate change impacts reach their predicted levels into the future. The report says, in the worst case scenario, Australia’s top five natural tourist attractions, including our beaches, wildlife, the Great Barrier Reef, wilderness and national parks, are all at risk of climate change impacts. A survey shows 17 to 23 per cent of tourists will actively seek new holiday destinations if there is damage to beaches.
USC STUDENT MAKES HISTORY AT WINTER OLYMPICS When University of the Sunshine Coast student Klaus Jungbluth Rodriguez (pictured second from right) competed in crosscountry skiing at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, he became the first athlete ever to represent his home country of Ecuador at the Games. In a story reminiscent of the 1990s comedy Cool Runnings, Mr Rodriguez, 38, was an Olympic weightlifter but was forced to find a new sport after suffering a knee injury. In 2012, the Ecuadorian – from the humid city of Guayaquil – discovered he enjoyed using roller skis to train for cross-country skiing because it had low impact on his knees. Mr Rodriguez arrived on the Coast to start a PhD in exercise physiology at USC in July and has made the most of Buderim’s hilly landscape to train.
SHARK’S SEA CHANGE CAUSES A STIR Sea Life Sunshine Coast welcomed a 30-year-old male grey nurse shark last week after he went on a 12-hour migration north from Sea Life Sanctuary in Manly in New South Wales. The shark was transported in a custom-built mobile aquarium and caused a stir on the highways throughout the lengthy journey. The sanctuary has closed, resulting in 2000 marine creatures requiring new homes and Sea Life Sunshine Coast will be accepting more of them in the next two weeks. Others will be rehomed in aquariums in Sydney and Melbourne.
A Mountain Creek resident has set out to change the Sunshine Coast’s single-use mentality. Dylan Kuipersmith has kick-started the Crucify the Cup Campaign and needs to crowdfund $1000 for an Australian-first event. The money will be used to buy 200 coffees at a local cafe, which will be given away for free to people who bring in reusable coffee cups. A donation tin will also be located in the cafe, with all funds raised going directly towards the next campaign. Mr Kuipersmith hopes to begin a Coast tradition, with regular coffee giveaways to those who use reusable coffee cups. To find out more, visit gofundme.com/CrucifyTheCup.
BRAVE LOCAL LIFE SAVERS THANKED WITH AWARDS Three Sunshine Coast residents have been awarded the National Rescue of the Month medals at Parliament House in Canberra for their efforts to rescue a 23-year-old woman caught in a rip on an unpatrolled beach in November last year. The woman was on a stretch of beach between Sunrise and Sunshine Beach when she found herself caught out and off-duty lifesaver Olivia Emanual (pictured with Wide Bay MP Llew O’Brien) and another surfer rescued the woman, bringing her to shore on a board. Ms Emanuel began CPR on the unconscious woman and was joined by Sunrise Beach lifeguard Josh Jones and lifeguard Isaac Smith. Together, they saved the woman’s life.

COAST COOKS KEEN TO GET BACK IN THE KITCHEN Sunshine Coast MKR contestants say being booted off the show hasn’t dampened their enthusiasm for cooking. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
here are few relationship stress tests as intense as entering a national cooking television show when you have never cooked together… but trying to do it when one half of the duo can barely find their way around the kitchen takes it to a whole new level. This is what My Kitchen Rules contestants Ash Holmes and Matty Thomas decided to do despite only dating for 18 months when they walked into the pressure-cooker of the Channel Seven reality show. In fact, the 25-year-old registered nurse and 26-year-old exercise physiologist had not lived together or travelled together either. The down-to-earth Sunshine Coast residents caused a stir in the first episode of the 2018 season by openly declaring that Mr Thomas didn’t actually know how to cook, but had won over hearts around the country before they were eliminated on Monday night. “I’m no good in the kitchen. My mates think it’s hilarious… they know I can’t cook. But I know how much it means to (Ash), so I was keen to give it a bit of a crack,” the Mudjimba resident says. Mr Thomas admits he hadn’t seen a single episode of MKR when Ms Holmes asked him if he’d apply for the show with her. “I wasn’t into it, I was definitely not that excited about going on it initially,” he tells My Weekly Preview. But Ms Holmes, of Buderim, says she didn’t understand the full scope of how much coaching and guidance Mr Thomas needed in the kitchen until the night before they arrived at the first instant restaurant in New South Wales, with Italian brothers Josh and Nic Sama being the first to cook their three-course meal for the first round. “To be honest, we’d never really cooked together before and while I’d cook dinners on and off and bake, it was a natural thing for me, so I assumed Matty had some form of cooking knowledge and ability, even if it was basic,” she says. “But when we started cooking, I found out how far away he was from being able to cook, and we were already in the competition and through, so it was like ‘oh bugger’.” They decided to lay all of their cards on the table with their competitors and tell them what their situation was.
“We hoped one or two of them might give us a sympathy vote when it was our turn to cook, but we quickly realised that was never going to happen,” Ms Holmes says. The bubbly couple struggled through their instant restaurant, where they served a calamari salad, pork sliders and an espresso crème brulee, and gained an overall score of 46 out of 130, which was the second lowest of the round. Despite the pressure, Mr Thomas says they strapped themselves in for the ride, “gave it a go and had some fun”. “It wasn’t super-stressful because we didn’t have high expectations and we didn’t talk ourselves up, we just did what we could do,” he says.
Although she had to take full control in the kitchen, Ms Holmes says she was able to get Mr Thomas chopping, peeling and assisting with plating up the meals. “He was doing the bare minimum and I couldn’t delegate as much as I’d hoped. There were so many emotions for me, but for us being able to cook together and managing to get through it on a positive note and not screaming and yelling at each other, it was a huge high for us,” she says. Celebrity chef Colin Fassnidge joined them in the kitchen in the Elimination House, where the Group 2 contestants were both guests and jury, deciding who was sent home. Sadly, Mr Fassnidge’s tips weren’t enough to save the duo, with their main dish – falafels with yoghurt flatbread and garlic sauce – not enough to impress judges Manu Fieldel and Pete Evans, netting them scores of two and three respectively. Their overall score of 67 out of a possible 140 was no match for opponents Stella and Jazzey’s 103. Ms Holmes says the experience was “a helluva ride” and even if she was given another crack at the competition, she wouldn’t choose anyone else as a cooking partner. “I could have (chosen someone else), but that wouldn’t have been fun. It’s the most amazing experience we could ever have asked for,” she says. Ms Holmes says she was excited to have a VIP seat at the table for this season, but admits she was taken aback when Victorian best friends Roula and Rachael and New South Wales sisters Jess and Emma immediately clashed. “We didn’t even know anyone and people started having opinions and throwing out strong comments about one another, I thought it was crazy,” she says. “We just let all the big personality people just battle it out and have their time. They were all pretty keen to chew each other’s heads off, so we’d just sit back and listen,” Matty adds. Despite going into the competition as a cooking novice, Mr Thomas admits he now has a passion for cooking and is experimenting with “whipping up new things”. “I definitely know how to be a bit more of an assistant in the kitchen now. You learn a lot about each other in a short space of time when you go through an experience like that,” he says. Watch My Kitchen Rules on Channel Seven.

A NEW PARTNERSHIP Council has joined forces with the country’s largest local government climate partnership to help us achieve our vision to be Australia’s most sustainable region – healthy, smart and creative. As part of the growing Cities Power Partnership, our council has joined a network of 70 local councils who pledge to achieve five key actions across renewable energy, efficiency, transport and working together. Progress by each council is updated via a six-monthly online survey. In return, the Cities Power Partnership provides incentives for councils to deliver on their selected targets. Our council – the first in Australia to build a utility scale solar farm – is excited to both share knowledge and learn from other communities. The partnership program complements many priority actions under our recently endorsed Environment and Liveability Strategy 2017 – an integrated approach to achieving a healthy, sustainable and liveable community.
HELPING OUR TURTLES As the first turtle hatchlings of the season make their way from their nests to the ocean, more than 300 people have joined our annual clean-up event. Our dedicated volunteers removed more than 800 kilograms of litter from the Coast’s beaches and waterways from 19 sites between north Bribie and Coolum. Ingestion of marine debris is one of the major causes of death in hatchling sea turtles as they migrate across the Pacific Ocean. This year, the volunteer participants focused on collecting small hard plastics that had washed in during the recent swell and tide events, which have been identified as a major threat to surface feeding hatchling turtles. The clean-up was supported by Unitywater, community groups such as Coolum and North Shore Coast Care, Ocean Crusaders, Surfrider Foundation, Sea Shepherd and Poppy Ive’s Visionary Ocean Warriors and 70 international students from Rustic Pathways.

SERENA STANLEY’S FAMILY SAY THANK YOU A huge outpouring of support for a Maleny family has helped ease their burden after the sudden loss of their beloved daughter. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
aleny man River Stanley is reaching out in gratitude to the Sunshine Coast community after the death of his daughter Serena on January 28 to thank people for their “overwhelming” support of his family in the aftermath of the sudden tragedy. Family friend Bernie Gilmour set up a Go Fund Me page which has raised over $43,000, and emotional support continues to flow. “We want to thank not just the Maleny community but the whole Sunshine Coast community,” Mr Stanley says. “The big message my boys and Serena’s mother have talked about is how grateful we are. They’ll never know how much it has meant to us, the financial support, the physical support, the emotional support – it’s just incredible. “Our place has been overflowing with food people have made for us. Everyone has been incredible with their support and love and their honouring of Serena.” The 17-year-old Maleny girl died from head injuries after a horse she was training at a stud outside Melbourne was spooked and threw her off. She had embarked on the new job as an au pair and horse trainer only a week earlier. Serena was a vibrant, kind-hearted and
ambitious young woman who was wellknown and loved in Maleny, where she grew up, as well as in the horseriding community and sporting associations she was involved with across the Sunshine Coast and in regional Queensland. About 1000 people wearing blue, Serena’s favourite colour, gathered at the Maleny and District Horse and Pony Club at Maleny Showgrounds on Sunday, February 4 to remember her – a fitting venue as she spent much of her time there and won many awards at a state level in showjumping for the club. She was the Interschool National Champion in Showjumping in 2015 and was also a keen AFL player. “AFL was her next big passion,” Mr Stanley says. “She had made the Sunshine Coast school sports team a couple of years ago and at the state final she tore her ACL, and that put a stop to all her sport for 12 months and horseriding for six months. That changed her thinking and she decided to go to Emerald to the agricultural college.” While Serena was completing her Year 12 studies in Emerald last year, Mr Stanley took a teaching job and joined her there, a time he treasures immensely. “I got to be a part of her life in Emerald

Serena Stanley and all the things she was involved in up there,” he says. “I got to see the friendship groups she had made up there and just be a part of her everyday life. Everywhere she went, she just endeared herself to people.” From Emerald, she went to Narrabri, where she encountered a kindred spirit. “At Narrabri she was working with a beautiful man – I only met him for the first time at the service. He worked at an intuitive level with horses and she got a lot out of working with him and learning to connect with a horse on an intuitive level. She spent three weeks there before coming home for Christmas. He was dumbfounded [by her death] and said in his 80 years, he’s never had anyone who understood horses like she did.” Mr Stanley says Serena had always hoped her future would involve horses and had dreamt of competing in showjumping at the Olympics. When the job came along at Broadford, an hour north of Melbourne, it was a big step towards realising her dreams. “She’d only been there eight days,” Mr Stanely says. “I wanted to take her to the interview but she said it was something she

wanted to do on her own and it was important. We spoke every day and she was very happy and safe and it was all good. “She had to take a 10-year-old boy to school about 30 kilometres away, pick him up and give him riding lessons. During the day she was doing the training and riding the horses. She was very excited to be there, they were good people and they were just thrilled with her and devastated at the outcome. “While she was there, she got a job in the States to work at a ranch in San Francisco and was going there in June. She was really looking forward to it.” While Serena’s parents are separated, she remained close to her mother Sandy and her two brothers, who she shared a wonderful rapport with. The devastated family is spending time together in Maleny grieving and attempting to process life without their shining light, Serena. In his moving eulogy to his daughter, Mr Stanley described Serena as a fun, adventurous, free-spirited and kind girl who always saw the good in others. “In a horse competition, whether she won or lost, she would always pat her horses and thank them for their efforts. She could have the worst ride and would pat her horse and thank him. She’d say it wasn’t his fault. “I was always so proud of her. I will miss my little girl so, so much but I will always be proud of her beautiful qualities. “I’ve started a gratitude journal to make sure every day I find something to be grateful for. I’ve encouraged everyone to do the same. It doesn’t matter what you’re grateful for, it could be a delicious apple, but find something every day. Serena always tried to be positive and this will be my way of honouring my girl.”

The first thing you notice about the new Mukti Organics Bioactive Body Polish is the smell – it’s divine. The scent comes from sandalwood seed, macadamia nut powder and Davidson plum, which target cellulite, stretch marks and skin imperfections. It’s a gritty exfoliant that’s perfect for polishing your skin, leaving it feeling silky and smelling beautiful. Follow it up with the Bioactive Body Elixir, a rich blend of 14 oils plus native ingredients like kangaroo paw flower, rosella flower and wattle seed. It contains hydrating essential fatty acids, phytonutrients and phytoceramides to stimulate cell turnover and elasticity. After exfoliating with the polish and finishing with the elixir, my skin was smooth and luminous. Mukti Organics is a local company producing handmade certified organic products.

• Use the right brush – you need a soft brush that’s small and flat with fluffy bristles to help blend and smudge the eyeshadow so it looks soft rather than sooty. • Use the right eyeliner – use a soft eye pencil rather than liquid or gel eyeliner as they’re easier to smudge and blend to create a soft look. • Don’t stick to black – a traditional smoky eye uses black or dark grey but the modern smoky eye can be done using beautiful shades like purple, burgundy, plum or emerald green. • Shimmer it, just a little bit – dab some highlighter or a metallic hue on your eyelid directly above the iris to reflect and add more depth and drama to the look.

CHILD SUPPORT IS A MUST
MINING THE MOON
Sami Muirhead says there are many consequences for failing to pay child support and dodging the responsibility is inexcusable.
Richard O’Leary questions the wisdom of allowing the moon to become a commodity and asks, who has the right to make this decision?
ran into a long-time friend this week and heard an extraordinary tale with tears in my eyes. She has just received a record amount of money in child support from her ex-husband, who was caught at the airport as he tried to board an overseas flight. The Brightwater mum of two received $355,000 in child support after the children’s father failed to pay a cent for nearly two decades. The not-so-charming offender paid it in a lump sum within days. He allowed his own flesh and blood to go without for 16 years while he jetted between here and Asia and focussed on his second family abroad. Not paying to help raise your kids is wrong. Not paying to help put food on your children’s plate when you clearly have the money is plain disgusting. “The fact he could pay that amount of money within a couple of days came with mixed emotions,” she said. “I have just finished paying a three-year loan for orthodontics, braces, and both kids have just finished school and are buying first cars too. I am pretty elated I have a lump sum at last so they can feel financially healed, but at the same time I feel that holding back the funds over so many years impacted on all of our lives and created hardships and moulded beliefs around money that need not have happened. I do not feel bitter, I feel sad my ex-husband missed out on an amazing journey with his own children.”
This deadbeat dad was caught at Christmas as he tried to fly out of Australia. Authorities are able to prevent Australians leaving the country under DPOs (departure prohibition orders). In the past eight months, the government has recouped $6 million from 700 Australians trying to leave. The goal is to surpass the $10 million recovered last financial year. So it is a new start for this local family. “The first thing I did was pay out my credit card bill,” she said. “To see that zero balance and a healthy amount of money in the bank account is just surreal. I have been a sole parent for 16 years and responsible for every aspect of parenting from financial to emotional to physical. It was hard. I was not supported on any level and this impacted on what I could provide for my kids with schooling, clothing and treats. “It also impacted on my own life in a huge way, as most single parents have a break, but being solo meant I could not move on with a wholesome social life as I had limited funds for babysitters. I did love being a mum, which was lucky,” she said. I know both her stunning daughters and they have always been polite, smart, mature and compassionate young women. They have stayed in sporadic contact with their father over the years and their mum never tried to turn them against him. She is a better woman than I am. I wish my friend and her girls every single sip of happiness they can drink from the cup of life.

ow would you feel about advertising smack bang in the middle of the moon? I can think of a few campaigns that may work with the unusual shape of the billboard: Wide World of Lights could use it as a prop for a sale on its latest range of lamps, or Dominos could slice it into a plain cheese pizza. I’m sure some would argue that it would ruin the ambience somewhat on a romantic night under the stars. Others may say it could diminish that feeling you get when you stare up at the moon and ponder your place in the universe. And that’s not to mention the deleterious effect on werewolves. Now I can safely say, at this point in time at least, selling the advertising rights to the moon is not on the agenda, although there are moves underway to open it up for business. Since NASA’s Apollo missions the moon has largely returned to its former role as an awe-inspiring globe that helps to mark our months and regulate our tides. But recently, private companies have expressed an interest in setting up shop. The Outer Space Treaty — officially known as the Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space (can’t imagine why it got a nickname), says that activities of private entities must get authorisation and supervision of a
government. The only problem for space capitalists is that no one really knows how governments are supposed to authorise or supervise – there are no guidelines. The treaty was all about keeping the Cold War on planet Earth and preventing the Americans and Soviets turning space into a nuclear battleground. But 50 years on, times have changed and the United States is now reconsidering the treaty to try and open the hatch for space entrepreneurs. This year a small American company called Moon Express will become the first private entity to put a small robotic lander on the moon after the US government gave a one-off approval. The eventual aim is to mine the moon, and other companies are lining up with astronaut helmet in hand to do the same thing, and also extract resources from asteroids. Legally, any extraterrestrial miner wouldn’t own the patch of the moon it was mining, just the resource it extracts, but the issue does raise questions about who has the jurisdiction to make these decisions in the first place. If we don’t answer those questions now, it’s conceivable the lunar landscape could one day provide the canvas for a giant Titleist logo – the solar system’s biggest golf ball. And there you were thinking the billboards on the Bruce Highway were annoying.

MODERN CELTIC BAND VENTURE NORTH
A LITTLE ALONE TIME Boy & Bear drummer Tim Hart taps into all matters of the heart in his solo career and is preparing to bring an intimate set to the Coast. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
ouring the world as the drummer, back-up vocalist and songwriter for insanely popular folk-rock band Boy & Bear, Tim Hart needed more subdued side projects. And he has found the perfect escape in his solo career, which he juggles with time on the road and recording with his Sydneybased Boy & Bear bandmates. At the moment he’s working with them during the week on
material for their next album and escaping to various parts of the country for his solo tour following the release of his album The Narrow Corner on the weekends. He’s no stranger to performing on the Sunshine Coast – Boy & Bear have made several appearances at headline shows and as part of festival line-ups in recent years – and Mr Hart is keen to return. This time, he will bring an intimate one-man show. “For me, the tour and the album is all about storytelling. I love writing everything from short stories to songs, and music is my way of processing life. From that, I have ended up with a couple of albums, even if they have been released very far apart,” Mr Hart tells My Weekly Preview. “I think it’s one of those things that the longer you are a songwriter, you are looking for your own voice and it can be found in a whole number of different ways. With my solo project, when I write something that is not super fashionable and not super radio-worthy and not first-listen friendly I love it because it means something to me, and it is about finding the courage to put it on an album and if one of my songs touches just one person, it’s amazing for me.”
A TINY HEARING AID THAT
Mr Hart says his Boy & Bear bandmates have been incredibly supportive of his solo career and he has enjoyed the opportunity to create music focused on life experiences – with The Narrow Corner hinging on themes of loss, disconnection, and how travel alters perspective, for better and worse. “I’m really interested in the way we write about love and good or bad times,” he says. “A lot of people write about love and loss with anger and passion. But there’s something nice about when passion has gone away and the anger is not so acute, but the reality is still there. As if you’re scarred from an event and have to carry it with you but life goes on. So, I find the complacent and the mundane really interesting, because it holds that and that’s what life is like most of the time. “The vibe is very different at my shows and I love getting to finish a show and just chat to people afterwards and hear their stories. That kind of stuff is not as easy these days with Boy & Bear, but it reminds me of why I do music,” he says. Tim Hart is at the Bison Bar in Nambour on February 22. Doors open at 6.30pm. Tickets are $23.50 and are available at oztix.com.au.

50 SENIORS NEEDED FOR UNIVERSITY STUDY Sunshine Coast residents over 60 years of age are needed for a University of the Sunshine Coast trial of a new mobile phone app designed to assess the risk of people becoming frail and provide interventions to reduce this risk. Fifty local participants are required for the 18-month trial of the My Active and Healthy Aging (my-AHA) app as part of an extensive international study. Associate Professor Mathew Summers, lead researcher at USC’s Sunshine Coast Mind and Neuroscience – Thompson Institute, says the study will monitor the app’s effectiveness in assessing a person’s risk for becoming frail and providing in-home interventions tailored to the individual’s needs. “When people become physically frail, they are at greater risk of falling and sustaining serious injuries.

physical frailty can lead to a loss of independence meaning that the frail older adult may require moving into residential care,” Mr Summers says. “By identifying people at greater risk of becoming frail, the goal of the my-AHA platform is to provide tailored interventions to enable the older adult to reverse their risk of frailty and remain living independently in their own homes.” As well as being 60 years or older, participants need to be comfortable using a smartphone, have their own internet access, be able to stand and walk unassisted, have no history of significant cognitive impairment, have no existing psychological or psychiatric diagnosis and be healthy with no unstable medical conditions. They should also have experienced one or more of the following symptoms in the
past year: significant weight loss without dieting; feeling more exhausted; a slowing of movement or decline in physical strength; and reduced activity level. Participants will be assessed by researchers from the Thompson Institute every six months to monitor their progress over time. The global study includes researchers from Italy, Austria, Spain, Germany, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Sweden, Japan and Korea. It is funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council and the European Union’s Horizon2020 program.

HOME OWNERS OPEN THEIR DOORS
including Dr Geissmann and community project directors. Each Halcyon community comprises quality architect-designed homes set amid public amenities that would complement any five-star resort. Halcyon Lakeside, with its tranquil verdant panorama, has a new multimilliondollar recreation club hosting a championship-sized bowling green, tennis court, pickle ball courts, gymnasium, resort pool, and wellness centre. Not to be outdone, Halcyon Glades boasts the Long House with its own five-star recreational precinct featuring a championship-sized bowling green, 25-metre heated pool and floodlit tennis court. Halcyon Glades’ open day is on February 17, while Halcyon Lakeside’s open day is on March 3. Both will be held from 10am to 1pm.
hen it comes down to choice, developer Halcyon is making it easy for buyers to decide where they’d like
to live. Halcyon Bli Bli, nestled in the green heart of the Sunshine Coast hinterland, and Halcyon Glades, which combines a rural outlook within easy reach of the city or coast, are opening their doors to the public to offer an insight into the best that lifestyle communities can offer. The open days are hosted by Halcyon home owners to give prospective home buyers a chance to meet their new neighbours and get a feel for the pace of life in a secure community. Halcyon joint managing director Bevan Geissmann says each of the communities has its own individual identity. “Much of that comes from our home owners themselves,” he says. “That’s why they enjoy being able to show off their community at the open days. They love their lifestyle and they love meeting new people, so it’s a great start for anyone to find out what the attraction is. “It is a genuine insider’s tour and a chance for the whole family to explore our communities together. Often sons and
daughters are a big part of the decision and open days give them a chance to see what’s on offer.” The open days are complemented by Halcyon information sessions, which
explain the facts about over fifties communities. These sessions offer an opportunity to find out more about over fifties living in a relaxed setting with Halcyon’s senior staff,
Information sessions will be held on February 28 at Club Pine Rivers and on March 14 at the Buderim Tavern. Register your interest 1800 626 488 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

NOW THAT’S A TRUCK
he first-ever Ranger Raptor, Ford’s latest off-road, performance pick-up truck, blasted out from behind its camouflage during a reveal event in Thailand last week. The Ranger is designed, built and tested to set a benchmark as the only factory-built performance truck across Asia Pacific. Designed by Ford Performance team for the enthusiast off-roader, Ford Ranger Raptor strengthens Ford’s commitment to
deliver high-performance pick-up trucks. “We are so excited and proud to unleash this vehicle to the public. Driving it really makes you feel like a hero,” says Ford Performance chief engineer Jamal Hameedi. “The Ford Performance team is excited to extend the Raptor name from our flagship off-road performance F-150 to Ranger. “Just like the F-150 Raptor, the Ranger Raptor builds upon the core capability of
the range of vehicles it comes from and carries the unmistakable Ford Performance DNA appearance.” The Ranger Raptor features distinctive design cues inside and out that are functionally driven. It comes with a terrain management system offering six modes for various driving experiences, which can be selected via a dedicated five-button switch located on the steering wheel. The powertrain features cutting-edge technology to offer more power and torque, better fuel economy and less weight, and there are off-road-specific calibrations for the engine, transmission, driveline, steering, brakes and electronic stability control system. Inheriting vital capability from the successful Ranger and complementing that with DNA from the F-150 Raptor, the Ranger Raptor is set to turn heads throughout Australia and around the world. “It is amazing to enable this level of performance and create a vehicle that can provide off-road enthusiasts such an adrenaline rush,” says Mr Hameedi. “It really is like a motocross bike, snowmobile and an ATV rolled up into a pick-up truck – it’s an incredible, awesome experience.” The Ford Ranger Raptor will be produced in Ford Thailand Manufacturing.
THE OLD UTE IS BACK
Back in 1990 car salesman Les Evangelista sold Ron Hill of Ron Hill Automatics a new VG Holden Ute. It was the first VG ute sold on the Sunshine Coast. Fast forward 28 years and Mr Evangelista is the manager of Pacific Ford Used Cars. Recently, the team at Ron Hill Automatics decided it was time to trade the old ute for a Ford Ranger. During the process, Mr Evangelista spotted the old ute. On inspection, he realised that the log book still in the glove box had his signature from the sale all those years ago. “There can’t be many VG utes floating around with the same owner,” Bill Olah, the new owner of Ron Hill Automatics says. “When the product is good and regular servicing carried out by a reputable place of service it creates longevity. The ute has served us well and now we look forward to many years of motoring with the Ranger. “Isn’t it fantastic to keep business on the Coast with companies that have been in operation for over 30 years.”

TECHNOLOGY BOOST FOR INVESTORS Wouldn’t it be great if you could get an instant risk report on any property you’re considering buying? Well, now you can.
nparalleled new technology is giving buyers and industry professionals the ability to make smarter and safer property decisions at the click of a button. The innovative algorithm, created by RiskWise Property Review, allows buyers a glimpse into the long-term risk-or-reward of a property. Buyers can now instantly receive a comprehensive analysis report that measures current and historical data and dozens of variables against a broad range of risk factors, ultimately scoring the property’s risk potential from minimal to high. This gives buyers and industry insiders the ability to weigh up the overall risk of the property against their own risk profile and their purchasing strategy – and avoid properties that send up a red flag. The information in the comprehensive report is unbiased and independent, covering all factors including location, suburb, population and economic trends, rental returns, property type comparisons and even capital growth forecasts for the long and the short term, for any property in Australia. The innovative algorithm used to
generate the analysis reports was designed to ‘fill in the blanks’ when considering a potential property for purchase or development. “We wanted to develop a service that gave investors and experts in the industry a way to take complex variables and turn it into a simple but accurate whole picture,” RiskWise Property Review founder and CEO Doron Peleg says. “The reports give buyers a chance to look through the myriad advice given to them about property and see the genuine figures and numbers on paper from a risk-based perspective.” The analysis risk reports can be obtained on the RiskWise Property Review website by simply entering in an address or suburb. “We’ve designed the service to be inexpensive and accessible to everyone, from first time homebuyers to mortgage brokers and property developers,” Mr Peleg says. “The new insight provided by these reports is revolutionising the way we assess risk on properties, the due diligence process and ultimately, our buying behaviour.” In addition to the risk analysis reports,
“We’ve designed the service to be inexpensive and accessible to everyone”

Investors and residents alike will take advantage of the stunning location, ocean views, market beating prices and indicative returns of *5.25% p.a.
information-seekers can request custom reports from the RiskWise team of analysts and property market experts. “When you provide us with some basic criteria, we can use our analysis algorithm to determine the suburbs and property types that match the outcomes you’re looking for,” Mr Peleg explains. The insights provided by the company are giving the real estate industry a firm push into the future, by equipping property investors with risk management tools. RiskWise Property Review’s website also provides other free tools, including calculators for determining financial position, cash flow on a property, capital investment profit and a stress test calculator. In addition, RiskWise Property Review has developed in-depth and unbiased analysis reports detailing off-the-plan risk factors, and provide ‘Buy, Build and Flip’ insight reports specifically for developers. With all this new analysis technology available, Australian investors now find themselves in a new and stronger position – one where the power of knowledge and risk management is finally in their own hands. – AAP

with MWP’s man in the water
Your new phrase for the week is Liturgical dancing. Yep, it’s a thing! I’m not sure if Bruno Mars will use it in his latest clip, but give it a go. Now, on a more serious note I am off snowboarding next week and will try to send my reports in if I am not spending too much time ripping powder lines. Last week saw some fun waves – I paddled out to northern tip of Bribie and score waves all by myself – nice little sand bank. Though, I did see a massive swirl in the water and I’ll admit, it freaked me out for a few minutes. This weekend should be super fun with light winds everywhere. Enjoy. And practice those dance moves!
