THE FIRST WORD
ISSUE 490 March 9, 2018
FROM THE EDITOR
The idea for Tesalate came to its founders as they were taking a hike in a secluded beach at Royal National Park in Sydney. When it was time to head back, their towel was wet, heavy, and worst of all, sandy. Fast forward 18 months of research and design and Tesalate was born. From those humble beginnings, Tesalate is now sold in more than 70 countries around the world. We are giving readers the chance to win one of four of these sand-free, beautiful products.
ow can it be March 9? Can you believe that we are into the third month of 2018 already? If you are like me, chances are you have already fallen behind on that list of ‘must-do projects’. With Easter upon us – and that always welcomed long weekend – the team at MWP thought it was the ideal time to talk ‘home’. And who better to turn to than two of the most successful competitors Channel Nine reality program The Block has ever seen? To celebrate our home-themed edition, Josh Barker and Elyse Knowles have shared a few insights into the renovation and DIY process. We also speak with three local experts who have shared their favourite DIY projects. So, there will be no excuse this Easter – grab those gardening gloves, pick up a paint brush and get to work! This week we also have our six-page My home feature, which is full of inspiration and on-trend ideas. We also have some fun with Easter decor, which is sure to have your home looking festive. Meanwhile, in property we take a look inside a $1.9 million luxury Minyama home. We can all dream, right? Plus we have plenty of local news, fashion, beauty and announce the launch of an all-new initiative, SHINE Business Women, which aims to empower women from all walks of life. Enjoy.

SHE’S GOT THE MOVES Where do you live? Buderim. First job? Orthodontic nurse. What are you currently working on? I recently completed a project to fit out a second studio and dancewear shop. My next project is to choreograph routines for the Ocean Street World Festival, where my students will perform. Your family includes… My husband Ralph, our children Rhys, Jeremy, Shaya and Hugo, daughter-in-law Nicole, grandson Dash, and a dog and two cats. First car? A brown Ford Cortina I bought from my brother. It was ugly and noisy. Favourite book? Singer of the Bush by Banjo Paterson.
Penelope Edler BIO
IMAGE: TRACY NAUGHTON
What are you reading now? The Barefoot Investor by Scott Pape.
Your greatest regret? I was offered the opportunity to study full-time at one of Sydney’s best ballet schools. I was unable to take the offer due to financial constraints. What achievement are you most proud of? Winning an Academic Achievement award from the Golden Key International Honour Society. A meaningful achievement considering I left high school in Year 10 and I undertook my academic study with four children (one was a newborn). Also having started three dance studios from scratch and building them up to be strong businesses.
“I come from a long line of brave, resilient people – being gutsy was an expectation”
Favourite song? You Put A Move On My Heart by Tamia. Best advice you’ve been given? I’ve always had an internal voice that said “you are brave enough to reboot, reinvent and bounce back from setbacks”. While I can’t pinpoint an exact phrase or statement, I come from a long line of brave, resilient people – being gutsy was an expectation. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? My dance studio, near Sunshine Coast Airport.
Royal Academy of Dance teacher and dance adjudicator Penelope Edler has trained with an incredible range of dancers, actors and musicians during her 30-plus-year career. These include Charles Bartley (who won second place in season two of So You Think You Can Dance season 2) and Kyle Page (the executive artistic director of Dance North), who started dancing under her guidance.
Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? I’ve survived some traumatic injuries that almost ended my dance career, so I don’t take my life or my ability to dance for granted. The injuries made me want to teach even more. It’s a privilege to pass on my knowledge and experience to my students and those that I adjudicate.
If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? I’d love to see a state-of-the-art theatre built. Best day in your life? There have been many – marriage, children – but also meeting Savion Glover, Gregory Hines, Omar Edwards and Dein Perry (all world-class tap dancers).
You are happiest when? Teaching, dancing and travelling. What frustrates you the most? Bad manners. How do you deal with your frustrations? I dance them away. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything what would it be? You are smarter than you think. Tea or coffee? Coffee, a cappuccino. NRL or AFL? Definitely NRL. I will be a Rabbitohs fan till I die!

A HAPPY HOME
Life is busy and too often those odd jobs around the house get pushed aside. With Easter upon us, it’s the ideal time to get on top of those DIY projects. MWP has spoken to industry experts to compile the top tasks to keep you busy these holidays. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.
“Repairs and maintenance jobs are the single biggest source of demand in the renovations market” Stuart Collins, HIA
ustralia is a house-proud nation. It’s not unusual to find us pottering around the house, painting a wall here and concreting a garden path there. And the proof is in the pudding – renovation activity across the nation is estimated to have totalled more than $33 billion during 2017. Roy Morgan’s Renovation Nation: Home Improvement in Australia report, which was released last year, shows that the most popular home improvements are minor repairs and alterations. This is followed closely by paint projects, plumbing, electrical work and styling. Housing Industry Association Sunshine Coast branch manager Stuart Collins says during 2017, approvals for renovations work in the Sunshine Coast region came in at $144.7 million, up slightly (+2.1 per cent) when compared with 2016. “This figure includes only renovations work which was large and substantial enough to require authorisation from local government – most renovations activity does not, so the true value of the local renovations market is much greater than $145 million,’’ he says. “The growth we have witnessed over the past year has been helped by the remarkably low level of interest rates as well as continued modest growth in dwelling prices. “Our survey results indicate that repairs and maintenance jobs are the single biggest source of demand in the renovations

market. The lesson is that renovations work is often crucial just to maintain the value of a home and overcome the effects of years of wear and tear on the property. “Renovations work is also an important avenue for updating the feel of a home and making it more consistent with modern standards of design and comfort. “Over time, for example, kitchens and bathrooms have moved from being functional parts of a home to adding to the overall sense of style and comfort. “For this reason, both kitchen and
“Our goal is always the same, which is to search for the ‘worst’ house in the best street, in blue-chip areas” bathroom renovation jobs form major parts of the renovation industry’s order books.” Two people who know plenty about renovation projects are Australian model Elyse Knowles and her partner Josh Barker. In 2017, Ms Knowles swapped heels and the catwalk for a hammer on the popular Channel Nine reality series The Block. Together, she and Mr Barker converted a dilapidated weatherboard Elsternwick home into a masterpiece. The property was purchased for $3.067 million by comedian
and television personality Dave Hughes, and they pocketed $547,000 in the process. Following the show, the couple enjoyed an extended holiday, but they are back and busier than ever before. “We are both now back at work and ready for a really exciting 2018,’’ Ms Knowles tells My Weekly Preview. “We have started a company called JE Projects and, under this, we will renovate and design high-end properties that we love and hope others will love too.” The pair recently made headlines for the sale of their Coburg home, which was their first renovation project together. It took 18 months to complete and it certainly paid off, selling at auction for $1.63 million. “It was very hard to part ways with our Coburg home as we spent so many hours, weeks, months and years working on the renovation. A lot of blood, sweat and tears,’’ Mr Barker says. “But it was time to move on and we have been lucky enough to purchase our new home. It’s another renovator’s delight – what else? “We intend to do a high-end architectural build that is going to turn heads again. “At the start our goal is always the same, and not overly original, which is to search for the ‘worst’ house in the best street, in blue-chip areas,’’ he says of their renovation process. “From there, we create a budget that we can live comfortably with, and always include a contingency plan for unexpected hurdles and costs. “From a design perspective, we try to
come up with amazing high-end yet feasible ideas. Ideas that can be achieved in budget and don’t over-capitalise. This is the time to secure reliable trades, with us also working long hours, so we can save on trades where we don’t need them.” Ms Knowles adds: “Living in a halfdemolished house isn’t always fun. But we get through by always remembering the end goal.”
THREE MUST-DO RENOVATION PROJECTS Identifying any structural and non-structural defects with a view to having them rectified through renovations work is the single most important value-adding exercise that a homeowner can undertake. Homeowners interested in adding value should review each of their home’s rooms with respect to modern standards of style, design and comfort, particularly when it comes to kitchens and bathrooms. With more people expected to work from home over time, the conversion of spare rooms or parts of living areas to function as a home office is also worth considering. SOURCE: STUART COLLINS, HIA.

INTERIOR DESIGN Mr Barker’s partner Elyse Knowles says her interior design style comes down to the looks she likes. Her advice is to stick with the styles you love and themes that will be timeless. Her preferred trends include Moroccan and African themes, rustic boho, and earthy-luxury.
As the seasons change and the weather cools, it’s a great time to tackle those interior DIY projects you have been ignoring. Your bedroom is an easy place to start and you can create a whole new look in one weekend, on any budget. Leah Delaforce of Delaforce Interior Design shares a project that is sure to bring new life to your bedroom.
5. AUTUMN PLANTINGS – with cooler weather, it is much easier to establish new plants. It will soon be time for cool-weather annuals including violas, pansy, snapdragons, primula and polyanthus. In the vegie patch, start preparing for broccoli, cauliflower, peas, spinach, kale and beetroot.
> The most important part of the project is your preparation at the start of the weekend. Empty the room and give it a really good clean. > Changing out your bed linen to warm textures and jewel tones will create a richer and cosier vibe. > Velvet, heavy knits mixed with darker blues and greys offer so many combinations. Millennial pink and soft shades of greys and nudes are also still on trend. Use lots of cushions in lots of shapes and sizes to layer the look. > If you don’t mind a bit of painting, it’s easy to freshen up your space in one weekend. Try painting only halfway up the wall to create a line of contrast or add some wallpaper for a bit of drama. You will
need to be a bit more organised to have your wallpaper ordered and delivered in time. > Co-ordinate a beautiful new artwork with your new colour palette. Buy what you love. Make sure the art is to scale to the room and the furniture, and hang it at eye level. > Textured and patterned floor rugs can take your room to that next level and also offer warmth if you have cold flooring. Scale is also important here as the rug should be large enough to lay under the bed but still extend out the end and sides to walk around. > Ditch the clutter. This is a great opportunity to remove anything that does not belong in a bedroom.

3. TURF TIME – our lawns get a lot of traffic over summer, from garden parties to backyard sports, so take this opportunity to carry out some repair. Start by aerating the lawn, focusing on areas of high traffic. If you have a fine-leaf lawn such as couch, rye or fescue, you can over-sow using
1. FEEDING – rejuvenate all that energy and take advantage of the heat which still remains in our soil. Ensure that you use a complete fertiliser, filled with primary and secondary nutrients. If you have azalea,
4. PRUNING – anything which was flowering in summer needs time to recover, so a good pruning allows for new, healthy growth and a stronger plant. Prune back established shrubs by one-third, making sure to prune back to a node or growth point. If your hedges have become a little wild and woolly, then give them a last hard trim before winter.
With the heat of summer behind us, and plenty of rain soaking the soil, now is the time to give your gardens some TLC. Plants tend to struggle through intense heat and heavy deluges of water. Simon Manawee from Buderim’s Manawee Garden Centre shares his top five DIY garden tips that can be tackled during the Easter weekend:
2. WEED AND MULCH – over summer, mulch which has suppressed weeds will have broken down, so make sure you top this up to make the job easier next season. If you plan to make a new garden bed, take the time to spread newspaper over the area to suppress any old growth, and mulch over the top. Remember, mulch should be applied at about 30 millimetres thick and never more than 50 millimetres. This allows for moisture to reach the plant, while still insulating and limiting weeds.
Former The Block contestant and successful renovator Josh Barker says one easy DIY project is to paint the inside of your boundary fence a dark colour. “It’s a quick and easy way to hide the fence, it becomes more of a shadow, and a really effective way to highlight the greenery of the garden.”
repair lawn seed. If you have a buffalo or broad-leaf turf, make sure you de-thatch the older blades to encourage new runners on this area. If it is too badly damaged you may need to get a few strips of new turf to patch. After aerating, spread a quality fertiliser over the entire lawn and water in well.
camellias, rhododendrons or magnolia, it is worth using a fertiliser made especially for these acid-loving plants. Similarly, use a good-quality citrus fertiliser for your fruiting trees and shrubs to keep them performing during the cool months.

FOOD AND FAMILY FUN IN KENILWORTH
LOCALS PROGRESS IN YOUTH OF THE YEAR PROGRAM Two students from a highly competitive field are set to take part in the regional finals of the Lions Youth of the Year. Emily Cornish from Maroochydore High School and Abby O’Brien from Siena Catholic College will move to the next level of the finals after progressing from the zone finals on the weekend. The duo competed against finalists from eight schools in the Mooloolaba, Buderim, Palmwoods and Woombye Lions Clubs zones and shone during the interview and public speaking competition. They are now preparing to compete against the best young speakers on the Sunshine Coast.
More than 10,000 competitors, trainers and supporters will descend on the Coast this weekend for the Mooloolaba Triathlon Festival. The festival has been a feature event on the Australian triathlon calendar for 26 years and includes events for all ages and experience levels including the Mooloolaba Superkidz and Special Triathlon, the twilight five-kilometre run and one-kilometre ocean swim. The event also features the Mooloolaba ITU Triathlon World Cup, where you can see some off the biggest names in action.
Kenilworth will transform into a foodie’s paradise on March 31 as the annual Cheese, Wine and Food Fest comes to town. The family fun day includes the best produce from the heart of the Mary Valley and Sunshine Coast hinterland and features the 10th Great Cheese Rolling Contest at 8.30am and a Cheester Easter Egg Hunt for the under sevens from 10am for just a $2 entry. The Easter festivities continue with the Easter hat parade at 11am. Peter Wolfe will host gourmet cooking demonstrations at 10.30am and 1.30pm with wine and cheese tastings all day. For more information visit kenilworthfoodfest.org.au.
IN THE LOCKER ROOM The second Locker Room lunch by Sunshine Coast Hotels will host much-loved Australian Olympians Duncan Armstrong and Steven Bradbury (pictured) at The Lakehouse Sunshine Coast on March 22, with all proceeds going to STEPS charity for the STEPS Pathways College. Renowned poet Rupert McCall will MC the event, ensuring the lead-up to the Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast in April will be the hottest topic in the room.

ECO-MINDED PHONE USERS HEAD TO NAMBOUR More than 31 kilos of phones have been recycled at the Optus Nambour store since the start of July last year, with more than 84 kilos handed in across the Coast’s five Optus stores in total. The figures have seen the store named the second highest recycler in the state, coming in less than 30 grams behind a Brisbane CBD store. There are 40 different mined minerals and metals in smartphones that make them highly recyclable. Those with old phones sitting in drawers are encouraged to recycle them through the MobileMuster program through Optus, Telstra, Vodafone, Virgin Mobile, Alcatel, Motorola, Samsung, Huawei and Microsoft outlets.
NEW FLU VACCINATION FOR OVER 65s Those aged over 65 are eligible to access two new flu vaccines free of charge. Federal member for Wide Bay Llew O’Brien says the vaccines have been fast-tracked to ensure older Australians receive greater protection. Mr O’Brien says of the 1100 flu-related deaths last year, more than 90 per cent were people aged over 65 years. “The new vaccines, Fluad and FluZone High Dose, were registered in Australia and funded by the Coalition Government to provide increased protection and help save lives. They will be available to more than three million Australians aged 65 years and over.” From April 2018, both vaccines will be available through the National Immunisation Program following a recommendation from the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee.
$225 MILLION BACK TO TAP Unitywater and Sunshine Coast Council have installed a fixed water refill station in Ocean Street, Maroochydore as part of a trial to change the way people drink water in public places and help reduce plastic waste. Unitywater’s Back to Tap campaign encourages everyone to drink tap water rather than buy plastic bottled water to help keep our waterways clean and protect local marine life. Community and Environment portfolio holder Jenny McKay says data from the refill station will inform how the station is used and allow the council to explore opportunities for the installation of more stations.
Construction firm John Holland Group has been named as the winner of the five shortlisted bids to build the $225 million Sunshine Coast Airport expansion. The company will build a new 2450-metre runway capable of handling aircraft up to the size of an Airbus A330 or Boeing 787. The expansion is expected to create 2200 jobs on the Coast and return $4.1 billion to its economy in the next 20 years. Mayor Mark Jamieson says the expansion will also open up direct access for the region to more Australian cities and international markets. Funding for the expansion has included a loan from the Federal Government to the council.
SURFING ‘CITIZEN SCIENTISTS’ WANTED The University of the Sunshine Coast is building a team of surfing ‘citizen scientists’ to help academics measure water temperatures in surf zones as part of a worldwide project to understand the effects of climate change. The surfers are using Smartfins to collect data in the coastal environment, including sea surface temperatures, which have been previously difficult to measure. The research is part of an international collaboration with scientists in California and the United Kingdom. The USC’s Dr Kylie Scales and Dr Javier Leon are seeking more citizen scientists for the project. To participate, contact Dr Scales on firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr Leon on email@example.com.

WOMEN SET TO SHINE ON THE COAST A Sunshine Coast organisation hopes to create a brighter future for business women in the region and around the world.
n exciting new local organisation is blazing into action. SHINE Business Women aims to support, help, inspire, nurture and empower women not only in Australia but also around
the globe. SHINE will create opportunities for self-development, education, conversation and connection to enable professionals, small business owners and employees to reach new heights in their career and perform at their absolute best. Opportunities will be delivered through annual conferences, a membership site offering education, learning tools and shared stories, group retreat experiences and collaboration. SHINE founder and CEO Zoë Sparks says there has been a gap in this area for some time. “There are a growing number of professional women in business who have excelled in their careers for some time and are still looking to learn and focus on their growth and self-development, or find inspiration if they want to change path,” she says. “They want to be inspired, motivated and challenged. They are hungry for stimulation and don’t want to stop progressing.” Ms Sparks says this is not a networking group with regular face-to-face events or a ‘sign up for a free course’ organisation. “There are a number of amazing groups and associations who do this well and we wish to collaborate
and work with them, not compete,” Ms Sparks says. “Our conferences will deliver headline speakers whom are not always accessible unless if you are part of a franchise group or large corporation. I am absolutely thrilled with the line-up.” The inaugural SHINE Business Women conference will be held in June and high-calibre speakers include globally recognised digital communication expert Danielle Di-Masi and creator of #CelebratingWomen and professional company director Dr Kirstin Ferguson. TV host and motivational speaker Sebastian Terry of the 100 Things movement will also feature on the stellar line-up. SHINE Business Women is also determined to support other women who are not as fortunate. “It’s so important to give back and we are excited to announce that Share the Dignity is our appointed charity for 2018/2019,” Ms Sparks says. “We are donating a portion of our ticket sales but also have a few other initiatives in the pipeline which we know people will love.” The SHINE Business Women Conference is proudly supported by My Weekly Preview.
Globally recognised digital communication expert Danielle Di-Masi will join a host of renowned speakers at the inaugural SHINE Business Women Conference.
The inaugural SHINE Business Women conference will be held at the Novotel Twin Waters Resort on June 1 and 2. To find out more, visit shinebusinesswomen.com.

he Bass Strait is a notorious stretch of ocean with an infamous reputation for causing strife for even the most experienced crews, but it turned out to be the calmest section Matt Ward sailed on his journey aboard the Young Endeavour. The Alexandra Headland 17-year-old won a position aboard the 11-day V03/18 journey from Sydney to Davenport through an online ballot and joined 24 crew members from around the country to sail the majestic brigantine. “On day four, we were sailing in some pretty gnarly conditions just off Jervis Bay [in New South Wales] with 35-knot winds and four-metre swells. However, ironically, when we crossed the Bass Strait it was so calm that we had to motor across much of it,” he says. “In fact, at one point we simply took down the sails, which weren’t moving us anywhere, and jumped off the side of the ship for a swim right in the middle of the Bass Strait. “Swimming in 40 metres of deep blue water was definitely an experience I will remember for a long time to come. None of the staff had ever swum in the Bass Strait before and didn’t think that they would ever get the chance again. We were so lucky.” Matt graduated from Immanuel Lutheran College last year and learnt to sail a sabre (one-man dingy) at the Maroochy Sailing Club on Chambers Island. While he has enjoyed sailing through the heads from the Mooloolaba Yacht Club, Matt says the rough seas they experienced aboard the Young Endeavour were an eye-opener.
“Moving around below deck was a challenge to say the least. I was lucky enough to not get seasick, however, most of the youth crew (and some of the wellseasoned navy staff ) became quite green around the gills. “Climbing the rigging was an obvious high point of the trip. It definitely takes some getting used to in order to feel comfortable sitting on the yards up to 34 metres above the rocking ship, but when you do it feels so liberating. “Many of my fellow crew admitted that they could never imagine themselves climbing so high in any other circumstance. “Coming into Devonport we followed the naval tradition of manning the yards. “This is where the entire youth crew of 24 climbed the rigging and ‘lay aloft’ on the yards as we sailed into port. The staff even fired off two ceremonial cannons on the way in.” Matt says the experience was made even more special as the Young Endeavour’s youth scheme is celebrating its 30th anniversary of voyages this year. A few days after returning home from the voyage, Matt moved to the University of Queensland campus at Cromwell to begin studying a Bachelor of Mathematics. “It was an amazing trip that I would recommend to everyone. Not only did I learn so much about sailing, but I got to develop lifelong friendships and valuable skills in leadership and teamwork,” he says. “Looking forward, I want to keep sailing at every opportunity. The dream would be to sail in a Sydney to Hobart race.” myweeklypreview.com.au

A SWEET IDEA A local couple is putting on their running shoes to help the world’s disadvantaged diabetes sufferers. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
att and Nerida Punter have left many a footprint on the boardwalk from their Moffat Beach home around to Golden Beach during their regular running sessions. Inspired to help others after Mr Punter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 10 years ago, the Punters have used their shared passion for running to raise money for the Juniors Diabetes Research Foundation. But they have decided to take it to the next level, setting themselves a target of running 5000 kilometres and raising $10,000 for Insulin for Life Global, a charity that connects surplus insulin and diabetes supplies with the 50 per cent of the worlds’ diabetes population who cannot afford or access it. The Punters, who own The Savings Centre, kicked off the Injecting Hope Campaign in October last year and have already run 1200 kilometres and raised $3500 through sponsorships and donations. Mr Punter says while his diagnosis has led to some lifestyle changes, including taking up running to improve his overall health and wellbeing, his daily blood sugar tests and insulin injections are made affordable, or completely free, with government subsidies.
“People living in developing nations just don’t have that support,” he says. “We are blessed that we have everything here and it’s not a great import cost-wise, so we want to do what we can to help people whose lives become dependent on access to insulin. We know that every dollar we raise will go directly towards saving someone’s life.” A $250 donation is enough to supply one of Insulin for Life’s outreach centres for an entire year. “Trying to balance life, the business, running and the three kids keeps us on our toes,” Mr Punter says. “Lucky for us, the Sunshine Coast has this amazing ‘locals supporting locals’ mentality and we’re really feeling the love. “We have some fantastic sponsors involved in the campaign.” Swimart Currimundi owner Janelle Brown says sponsoring the Punter’s campaign is a no-brainer. “We really admire what Matt and Nerida are doing,” she says.

ALL IN A DAY’S WORK One of the Sunshine Coast’s busiest entrepreneurs is celebrating young innovators with her web-based show. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
unshine Coast businesswoman Yvette Adams has so many feathers in her cap she could just about take flight. She started her first business at 17 and currently runs three businesses, is a twice-published author and serves on a number of boards. Now, she’s giving young people following in her intrepid footsteps a platform to showcase their business ideas with her web-based show Young Entrepreneurs. Ms Adams hosts the show, which launched in 2016 and can be viewed on BRiN, the world’s first 24/7 business advisor app powered by artificial intelligence (AI) or on YouTube. To date, Ms Adams has completed 14 episodes of the show, and is due to fly to Sydney in early April to film more, after the show was commissioned for a further series due to its popularity. “I’ve had a ball interviewing these amazing young people,” she says. “They are all seriously inspiring and I’m constantly learning things from them.” To be eligible for consideration, Ms Adams says potential guests must range in age from 12 to 25 years and have a “few runs on the board” with their business and a unique story to share. Stories covered to date include a 13-year-old from Sydney who raised $20,000 for motor neurone disease research in just 18 months from a lemonade stand, guests with more than 15,000 Instagram followers who regularly generate e-commerce sales from the social network, guests who are leading the way in the development of hologram
technology globally, guests who have created three legitimate businesses by the time they were 25 years old, and others having celebrities such as the Kardashians endorse their lavish dessert business. “What is particularly heartening is the fact that many of the guests seem to have a really strong social conscience and even though they are young, they are already giving back and making this a part of the very fabric of their business,” says Ms Adams.

I encourage people to watch it if they have entrepreneurial children, or just for themselves. People put all these limitations on themselves – ‘I can’t do this business, I don’t have the skills’.

No Longer Happy? Is Stress, Anxiety, Depression, IBS or Insomnia affecting you? Anti-Depressants not working for you? Find out why Are you irritated, never excited, or constantly negative? Is trouble sleeping causing your mind to race? Do you wake through the night? Do you suffer anxiety for no real reason? Many underlying health conditions may cause these symptoms, however the most common may be caught like the common cold. Symptoms including anxiety, nervousness, depression, or lack of excitement and motivation. Stress feels overwhelming, and causes anger. You may also notice palpitations, overheating, tingling in the hands or feet, irritable bowel syndrome, foggy brain and poor concentration including ADHD in children. Sometimes lasting for months, years or even decades.
Found to affect 89% of patients and is widespread throughout the Sunshine Coast community Easily transmittable, a very common infection contracted from overseas travel to popular island holiday destinations, or contact with someone previously overseas, has been detected in the gut through specialised testing. This infection has been shown to release a neuronal toxin, affecting the nervous system physically and mentally. Studies now available link the impact of gut infection on the brain. Being easily passed on, others in your home may also be affected. Often the first symptoms correlate with a stomach bug causing diarrhoea or vomiting, or cold and flu symptoms. The countries it may be transmitted from, often have untreated water, with many people returning, infected and passing it on easily through schools, day care centres, hospitals or places of work. Fortunately, it is quite simple to treat, with most symptoms relieved when infection is addressed and eradicated. It’s well documented patients suffering for many years have improved dramatically after as little as one month with some patients showing improvement after just two weeks of treatment. Bacterial infections are just one part of a 7 step process for permanently treating depression, anxiety or ADHD. These are not conditions with unknown cause like many believe, and may be resolved if the cause is targeted.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE
Sami Muirhead’s stubborn brood had her stumped, for a while, but she didn’t give up without a fight.
egie Gate has rocked our house this week. I arrived home from work at 7pm to find the bin in the bathroom had leftover vegetables from dinner in it. I know there are serious issues going on around the world, but someone sabotaged my loo bin! One little person in my house decided the loo bin was the perfect place to stash their unwanted sweet potato and carrots. So I did what any mum would do and started an interrogation! My three-, five- and seven-year-old kids did not stand a chance. I promptly said there would be no more TV until someone admitted to dumping their vegies in the bin. They all claimed innocence. They all howled and wailed and begged for the TV to be turned back on. The seven-year-old blamed the five-year-old. The five-year-old blamed his father. The three-year-old blamed the dogs. Then the seven-year-old blamed the three-year-old. The three-yearold blamed the five-year-old and the five-year-old blamed me. On it went. I even looked suspiciously at our beautiful babysitter at one stage. Someone had to confess. But my bunch is a stubborn mob so instead they all went to bed without a culprit coming forward. The next night came around and again I refused to turn on the TV until someone admitted they stashed their scraps in the bin. By day three of Vegie Gate I was feeling defeated, deflated and depressed. I did what
any terrible mum would do and turned the issue into radio fodder, asking fellow mums and dad what I should do to get to the bottom of it all. One Caloundra teacher said her fail-safe way to get a student to confess to a crime is to tell them they are being filmed by a secret camera. The teacher calmly tells the class as she points up to the smoke alarm that she can download the recorded vision at any time. She said it works every time. Genius! Another teacher said she lets them work out as a group who is responsible and she claims the culprit confesses every time. I remember when I was a kid someone in our house ate a Monte Carlo biscuit without asking and all of us were lined up and forced to eat pepper. My big brother, who I adore, was, of course, the one who had scoffed the damn biscuit but he let me eat that pepper. So the only lessons I learned were I should have eaten the bikkie in the first place and my mum is a tad crazy. Back home, in the end I tried a reasonable and sane approach. I took each child aside and said they had to swear on my life it was not them who threw the vegies away. If they were lying, I would drop dead and go to heaven. One of them looked at me in terror and broke down sobbing. Finally I had pinned the criminal. I promised I would not reveal which child it was to anyone but let’s just say one child is eating every bit of their vegetables every night for the rest of the week. Possibly the year.

Bill Darby says our council sometimes walks a fine commercial line, and as a community it is our job to keep it accountable.
fter decades of one-term mayors, political stability and progress were finally on the horizon for the Sunshine Coast. With the state and federal elections out of the way, the thought of having all tiers of government working together made for an exciting future. Unfortunately, what we have instead, is a council at odds with just about everyone as it tries to justify some bold commercial and policy decisions. There has for some time been an underlying sentiment that Sunshine Coast Council walks a fine line in its role as a regulator and an enabler of enterprise. As this term of council progresses, the list of commercial pies in which council has its finger is growing, and the light touch of regulation is being replaced by some policy decisions that could have longterm consequences. One area of concern centres on the redevelopment of Mooloolaba’s Brisbane Road carpark site. After decades of procrastination on what should become of the site, the secrecy around the joint venture deal council has done with a developer has many stakeholders concerned. In the wake of some very public discord among councillors, press releases from the mayor’s office have been unusually defensive. Many are left questioning whether the commercial terms of the project are actually in the best interest of the
community. There seems to be a staggering difference between the overall car parking benefits claimed by the mayor and those identified in the project’s development application. Not to mention the costs. The Brisbane Road car park is just the latest in a long line of projects where council is financially involved and pulling the strings behind the scenes under the cover of commercial-in-confidence arrangements. Maroochydore’s SunCentral CBD project has been the subject of concern for nearly a decade and the controversy continues to mount. Nearly 10 years after the Horton Park Golf Course became an asset of the people, SunCentral (under the governance of a highly remunerated board and CEO, and council owned), is yet to attract major investment to the Maroochydore site. The Sunshine Coast is made up of an engaged community who are fiercely proud to be a part of this great region. We have a council that, for the most part, does an exceptional job delivering the services we need to remain one of the most liveable places in the world. That said, our community is also made up of some talented people who rightly believe council should be held to a high standard. A healthy cynicism about a council’s ability to always make sound financial decisions is alive and well on the Coast and shouldn’t be underestimated.
Bill Darby has been part of the Coast business community for more than 25 years. He works with all tiers of government and across the private and not-for-profit sectors.

DEATH BENEFITS AND TRANSFER BALANCE CAPS
ur article today is a little dry, so apologies in advance! That said, there are significant changes to death benefit rules under the $1.6 million transfer balance cap (TBC) superannuation regime introduced by the Federal Government, and we trust that drawing your attention to these matters will help you decide to seek advice. At the most basic level the changes have been designed to ensure benefits are withdrawn from the tax-favoured superannuation environment. From July 1, 2017, a recipient of a death benefit income stream will no longer be able to stop a ‘death benefit income stream’ and transfer the funds back to the
accumulation phase. Instead, a death benefit income stream will only ever be able to be commuted/rolled/transferred to facilitate the commencement of a new death benefit income stream with the same or a different provider, or to pay a lump sum death benefit (in other words, paid out of the superannuation fund). In addition, when you die your transfer balance cap (currently $1.6 million) dies with you, even if you have arranged for a reversionary pension to be paid to your
“We trust that drawing your attention to these matters will help you seek advice” spouse from your pension account, or arranged for a new death benefit superannuation pension to be paid to your spouse from the proceeds of a superannuation death benefit. The implications for a couple, especially a couple who may both be close to their respective transfer balance caps of
$1.6 million each, is that the surviving spouse in receipt of a superannuation death benefit pension will have the value of that death benefit pension added to his or her transfer balance account. Action will need to be taken to avoid breaching the cap. Where the pension is reversionary to a spouse, the surviving spouse has 12 months to restructure their affairs to meet the transfer balance cap rules. For example, Jan commenced an account-based pension for $600,000 on July 1, 2017. Later that year her spouse, Ben, passed away and his $1.2 million accountbased pension automatically reverted to Jan on September 1, 2017. As a result, the value of Ben’s reversionary pension will be credited to Jan’s transfer balance cap on September 1, 2018, creating an excess in her transfer balance cap by $200,000. Options are available for Jan to correct this excess, however, the implementation must be handled correctly.

FRIDAY, MARCH 9
Todd Widdicombe is feeling his age, but a Brouhaha brew makes it all better.
o I’m turning 43 in a couple of months and I’ve realised more so now than ever that things just ain’t what they used to be. When I log onto FB these days instead of being bombarded by ads suggesting “hot singles in your area want to see pictures of you naked” I’m receiving junk like “old ladies in your area want to see pictures of how tall you’ve gotten”. My wife Michelle rushed into the room the other night and said “did you just vomit?” and I was like “no that’s just the sound I make now when I go from sitting to standing”. I thought middle age was where you finally got your schtick together, but no sooner have you got your head together than your body starts to fall apart! In the old days if someone said “describe your sex life with a band name” I’d have been proud to say Mental as Anything or Bare Naked Ladies or Joy Division or even Savage Garden. These days the response to the question wouldn’t be as sexy. “Hey Todd describe your sex life with a band name.” Ummm, Dire Straits. Cold Chisel. Slim Dusty is probs closer to the truth. Oh hang on. Wait a minute, I got it. Meatloaf. Because he hasn’t performed in years and the last

time he did, it was very disappointing. You know you’re getting old when all of your injuries aren’t sport related but they’re because you “slept funny” last night. Michelle and I saw the new Fifty Shades movie and while the main characters were going for it all I could think was, ‘Man that looks like a comfy bed’. Hello!? I saw a group of attractive young ladies in very skimpy togs at Currimundi Lake last weekend and my first thought was, ‘Geez, I hope they’re wearing sunscreen’. Arrrggghhh!! The fact is I’m so old, I can remember getting through an entire day without taking a photo of anything. Ancient, right!? One thing I can be sure of is I’m not too old and crusty to enjoy a solid beer, although this week’s tasty beverage does lean towards a more mature palate. Maleny’s Brouhaha Brewery has created an exemplary range of brews. I’m a big fan of the NZ Pale Ale but this week I’ve tucked into the Brouhaha Milk Stout. Now traditionally I’d swerve a stout like Barnaby Joyce swerves protection, but this little number is tops. The Milk Stout pours a deep caramel colour and has a real smoky, malty aroma about it with a smooth tasty body that perfectly balances out with a clean sweet finish. Sure, I couldn’t drink 10 of these delicious treats, but this is the best easy-drinking stout I’ve tried maybe ever and stout fans will absolutely love its freshness. Love that it’s made by locals, for locals. I give the Brouhaha Milk Stout 3.5 out of five thumbs up.

SWEET SWEET RUSSELL ARIA Hall of Fame inductee and number one selling platinum artist Russell Morris is returning to the Sunshine Coast.

Mr Morris has penned breakthrough hits such as Sweet Sweet Love, Wings of an Eagle, Rachel, The Girl That I Love and many more. Constantly in demand, Mr Morris stills tours nationally and internationally, and he was awarded an Order of Australia for his contribution to the arts and music in January this year.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)
VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)
LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
Lady Luck smiles on you … as long as you can keep your tendency to exaggerate under control. When it comes to work, other people don’t care how fabulous you are. They just want to know that you can do your job promptly and competently.
The sun/Jupiter link is fabulous for social media connections and inter-personal relations as you talk, text, tweet and post up a storm. But has your romantic relationship been stuck in a time-warp where it’s been difficult to move forward?
The Venus/Saturn connection has the potential to disrupt romantic and domestic harmony. Don’t let it cloud your judgment though! You need to keep what’s working in your life and discard what isn’t. (And you may have to lose a battle to win the war.)
Jupiter is revving your engine, but taking short cuts will get you nowhere fast. Remove the dead wood from your life (whether it’s a person, possession, job or belief). Then the new moon repeats this theme of forging a new future.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
Saturn is visiting your money zone, so look for ways to consolidate your finances and build foundations for the future. Getting professional advice is best policy, as you work on manifesting abundance. Your intuition will speak to you this week.
Tuesday looks like the worst day of the week, when the Venus/Saturn square amps up your controlling side, attracting opposition from others. Instead of wasting time on games, why not grab the goat by the horns and initiate some overdue changes?
Jupiter blesses a project, but your heart must be in it. If you’re just going through the motions, it will affect the quality. Saturday’s new moon stimulates your cash zone. Leaving finances to themselves seems tempting but you need to keep up.
This week’s sun/Jupiter hook-up is all about goals and aspirations. So stop procrastinating and instead, ask yourself an important question. “Do I need to tweak my dreams to make them a more honest reflection of the real me?” Don’t sell yourself short.

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)
This week your energy is firing on all cylinders and you’re keen to travel and learn. The sun, Jupiter and the new moon also set the stage for a career reboot. (But your tendency to talk could get you into trouble – especially if you spread gossip).
CROSSWORD: ACROSS: 1 Agile 8 Tone down 9 Unity 10 Hallmark 11 Field 12 Jam 16 Shinto 17 Unbend 18 Bug 23 Brisk 24 One or two 25 Giddy 26 Resemble 27 Weedy DOWN: 2 Gunﬁght 3 Let alone 4 Sonata 5 Belle 6 Foray 7 Snake 12 Job 13 Mug 14 Abortive 15 One-sided 19 Unwell 20 Sorry 21 Beast 22 Frump
GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)
Do you secretly long to change something in your life, but it never seems to be the ‘right’ time? Stop being a stubborn bull and making ridiculous excuses! The message of this week’s new moon is to be more fluid and flexible.
WORD STEP: HIKER, BIKER, BIKES, BAKES, BARES, BARNS
TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)
Rams love to rush full speed ahead but this week’s stop/start stars will be frustrating. Early in the week, Saturn squares Venus. So, if your actions are blocked or a relationship hits a wall, use it as an opportunity to pause, reflect and refocus.

CURL UP IN COMFORT Considering we spend almost half of our life sleeping, it makes sense to invest in a good-quality bed. Your body will thank you for it.
Sleep by design TEMPUR material ensures personalised support and comfort. It promotes maximised pressure relief, personalised body support and TEMPUR guarantees mattresses with a full replacement 10-year guarantee.
did you know?
The TEMPUR brand TEMPURâ€™s story began when NASA developed a pressureabsorbing material to cushion and support astronauts during lift-off. This became TEMPUR, a unique material that responds to body temperature and evenly distributes your weight to provide exceptional sleep comfort. Since then, through further research and development, the company has perfected and extended the technology to create a collection of mattresses designed to suit every body, whatever your sleep preference.
While standard memory foam rebounds up to 20 per cent, TEMPUR has a rebound of less than three per cent.
The difference TEMPUR is a highly-specialised temperature and weight sensitive material made from open-celled visco elastic. Other mattress brands have a much lower density and are not as sensitive to your body temperature. They are also too soft to provide therapeutic support.
The Zurich Luxe Medium
SHOWROOM FOR THE LARGEST TEMPUR RANGE ON THE COAST.
What is TEMPUR Zero-G? The TEMPUR Zero-G Adjustable System was developed for all people, of all ages, to get the best out of their TEMPUR mattress. At the press of the button, you can transform your bed from a flat surface to raising your feet and head to create the ultimate sensation in relaxation and comfort.
THE MATTRESS Unlike conventional mattresses, the TEMPUR never needs to be turned or rotated. It has a permanent memory that helps it return to its original shape. There are four types of TEMPUR mattresses â€“ Original (firm), Sensation (medium), Cloud (soft) and Hybrid. When testing a mattress, allow three to four minutes on each. This allows enough time for your body to sense how comfortable each is.

Sorrento, by Spadaccini Homes, was last year named the HIA-CSR Australian Home of the Year. And while most budgets don’t stretch quite this far, the West Australian designer home provides valuable lessons in comfortable, liveable design.
THE HOME The three-level home boasts five bedrooms and bathrooms. It includes a gym, sauna and a creative ‘infresco’ entertaining area with a suspended plunge pool. The home also has a 10-car garage, which is accessed via a glass lift. IMAGES: SPADACCINI HOMES
THE DETAILS Sorrento features marble flooring, stone cladding and glass mosaics. A PV system and a custom-made German home automation system control energy use from the security and windows to water filtration.

A HELPING HAND
PROPERTY FLIPPERS TURN A PROFIT 7.9 per cent of re-sales for properties held between one and two years in 2017. The region also experienced the biggest growth in flipping, up 1.3 per cent on a year ago. The area most likely to turn a profit was Moreton Bay North (95.6 per cent profitable), for properties sold between one and two years.
enovation projects are on the up in Queensland and across the nation. And with a healthy property market here on the Sunshine Coast, interest in flipping homes for profit is starting to increase. Global data analytics provider CoreLogic has released its first Property Flipping Report, which provides a national analysis of properties that were bought and resold in a short time frame with the purpose of making a profit in 2017. The research measures flips within a year of purchase and within one to two years of purchase. It also tracks national trends in flipping over a 20-year period, from June 1997 to June 2017.
Key findings indicate almost nine in 10 properties in 2017 were flipped for profit. This included properties resold within a year of purchase (89.1 per cent) and those resold within one to two years (89.9 per cent). Property flipping accounts for only a small percentage of property sales overall. Only 1.3 per cent of dwellings resold over the year to June 2017 were previously held for less than a year. A further 5.7 per cent were put back on the market within one to two years of ownership. According to CoreLogic, property flipping is now on a slight upwards trajectory. In Queensland, property flipping was most prevalent on the Gold Coast, comprising
My Weekly Preview’s resident renovation columnist and Coast Store Cotton Tree’s Emilia Johnston agrees many Australians have jumped into renovating as a way to supplement their income. These are her top tips for renovating for profit: • Understand the property and what buyers are seeking from that suburb/ area • Speak to a local real estate agent and use their advice • Research • Ask yourself, what do families need – four bedrooms, a rumpus room etc? • Start with your wish list – detail all of the improvements the property requires • Set a budget and prioritise the items on your wish list.
When it comes to home renovations, be it big or small, researching and talking to the right expert can help turn a potential error into a more rewarding experience. An expert’s goal is to guide you through your reno, so having a conversation with a person who lives and breathes renovation ideas is vital for a successful project. The team at QEBS The Builders Warehouse at Maroochydore understands the importance of helping the local home renovator or new home builder make the right decisions. And locals can benefit from their expertise at the QEBS ‘meet the experts’ event on Saturday, March 17. Experts in kitchens, floor coverings, decking, plumbing, bathrooms, insulation, roofing, rendering and Hebel products will all be on hand. There will be a free jumping castle for the kids, sausage sizzle and the Hot 91.1 crew will be broadcasting live. Visitors will also have a chance to win $2500 worth of products or services. The event is open from 8am to 5pm at QEBS The Builders Warehouse, 29 Commercial Road, Maroochydore.

INSIDE A $1.9 MILLION COAST PROPERTY A solid marketing campaign led to the successful sale of a luxury home on the Minyama waterfront. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
he ultimate coastal lifestyle was on offer when 23 Kumbada Court came onto the market. The Minyama home had it all, with a stunning, absolute waterfront, north-east-facing home on a sizeable 728-square metre block on the main canal, which is 30 per cent wider than the other channels that feed into it, offering more privacy. So it was no wonder it quickly caught the eye of those looking for a slice of luxury and a place where they can entertain and enjoy the finer things in life. The property sold at auction for $1.9 million to buyers from Sydney and agent Geoff Ohmsen from McGrath Estate Agents says despite thunderstorm hitting Minyama right on the 2pm auction opening on February 24, more than 80 people turned up to watch the proceedings. “We had a total of 55 groups through in the three weeks of open homes and seven registered bidders on the day,” Mr Ohmsen says. “There was fairly steady bidding, which stalled at $1.75 million, and an off-the-floor negotiation led to the $1.9 million final price, which met the reserve.” Mr Ohmsen says advertising in My
Property Preview led to an average of 16 groups coming through each weekend, with double open homes every Saturday. “Seventy per cent of those groups were there because they’d seen the property in the magazine. The other 30 per cent were neighbours or locals in the area or those who I had called to invite to inspect it.”
By having more buyers in the wings, drawn in by the eye-catching images in the magazine, Mr Ohmsen says both he and the sellers can rest easy knowing they had tested the market and received the best possible price for the property. Read My Property Preview each week to see more local success case studies.

with MWP’s man in the water
Hey groovers from Canada. Well, I can report the snow here is off-the-hook good! The average snow powder depth is one foot, so as you can imagine that is extremely good. I have been riding trees for four days and we are yet to cross paths with anyone. Pretty cool. Now, for you? Looks like a swell is going to hit and 25-knot winds will be attached. Enjoy what you can. As for me I am heading to the hot tub as my legs are shot from riding powder! Now where is my wine? Keep rockin!
