FROM THE EDITOR
he first time I drove past the six-metre-high public art sculpture of a cartwheeling child at the Sunshine Coast Health Precinct, I was intrigued. And, I wasn’t alone. The piece, created by acclaimed Coast artist Russell Anderson, captured the interest of my four-year-old son. Even now, he points to the piece in excitement. It has provided a great opportunity to educate him on the importance of art and creativity. Unfortunately, the unveiling of the sculpture did not come without some controversy. The Stocklandfunded project cost $220,000 – a figure some residents found to be outrageous. So, the question must be asked – is money spent on public art worth it? Is it a good community and social investment? This week, Leigh Robshaw delves into the issue. And, for the record, Russell has revealed that after all art materials and time was taken into account, his payment equated to less than $10 an hour. Turn to page 10 for more. Also this edition, we meet the manager of Twin Waters Golf Club, Steve Hutchison, who is off to the US Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Georgia – it’s every golfer’s ultimate fantasy. We also have lots of family-friendly activities and events to keep everyone entertained over Easter and during the school holidays. Stay safe and enjoy the break.

SNAP HAPPY Where do you live? In Peregian Beach on the Noosa National Park with all the amazing native Australian birds. I love it. It’s so relaxing and peaceful.
Best day in your life? There are so many highlights – I guess my wedding day is up there. More recently, my team and I accepted three international awards at the Stevie Awards for customer service. To say I’m proud is an understatement.
First job? Packing strawberries. It didn’t last too long! What are you currently working on? Expansion, in multiple terms. Watch this space. Your family includes… My husband Berni, our two fur babies, a Schnauzer and American cocker spaniel, as well as our beautiful families on both our sides. First car? My first car that I didn’t steal off my mum was a red manual Suzuki Swift. I loved that car. Favourite book? I’m not really a big reader but I loved Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis, and occasionally I will read a paperback from the newsagency but not often.
“Always go after your dreams and celebrate the small wins just as you would the big ones”
r u e n e r p e r t n e
Traci Castle is the founder of Studio Republic. While she is now semiretired, Ms Castle is still passionately focussed on business development and marketing for her business. She has established a dynamic team that continues to push the boundaries in retail photography. Ms Castle and Studio Republic have been recognised at the International Photography Awards, the Stevie Awards and the APAC Insider magazine awards.
Your greatest regret? I try not to dwell on those too much. What achievement are you most proud of? Building an award-winning company and having a great team of people that I work with every day.
You are happiest when? Lazing around with my husband and the puppies or travelling to new and far-off places.
What are you reading now? Nothing. I’m all about Netflix.
Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? The day I decided to start my own studio. It was so much hard work and there were many tears but looking back I wouldn’t do anything differently. Now almost 10 years on it’s amazing to think what I have achieved.
Favourite song? Hmmm that’s a hard one, I have a lot – Fast Car by Tracy Chapman, Breathe Me by Sia, I Could Have Lied by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Everlong by Foo Fighters, lots and lots more. I love music. Best advice you’ve been given? Always go after your dreams and celebrate the small wins just as you would the big ones. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? I love going to Noosa for a bite to eat, but we really love our little village vibe at Peregian Beach. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? The traffic, especially on the Bruce Highway, which can be a nail-biting nightmare.
What frustrates you the most? Bad customer service. And people not wearing shoes anywhere but the beach. How do you deal with your frustrations? You don’t want to know. Ha, ha. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything what would it be? You don’t know everything. Tea or coffee and how do you have it? At the moment tea – strong. NRL or AFL and who do you follow? Neither.

WHAT IS THE VALUE OF PUBLIC ART?
Public art can be uplifting, thought-provoking and enhance the cultural identity of a region, but is the Sunshine Coast spending too much on it as we endeavour to establish ourselves as a healthy, smart and creative region? WORDS Leigh Robshaw.
iDIDIT! at Oceanside, above, and right, the artist Russell Anderson.
10 My Weekly Preview | March 29, 2018
IMAGE: KRISTA EPPELSTUN
“Public artwork, such as the iDIDIT! sculpture, are incredibly valuable assets as they reflect the essence of the community and become part of the region’s identity”
here’s a landmark you can’t miss when you visit the Sunshine Coast University Hospital. It’s a rustcoloured steel sculpture of a boy doing a handstand, six metres tall and bursting with youthful exuberance. The piece, called iDIDIT! is by Maleny artist Russell Anderson. While the response to the piece was initially positive when it was unveiled last July, controversy arose when a TV news report revealed the piece cost $220,000. Mr Anderson copped a barrage of criticism on social media over the ‘waste of taxpayers money’, despite the fact it was paid for privately, by the developer Stockland. Mr Anderson, who has worked as a public artist for more than 20 years, was devastated. He’d poured his heart and soul and a year of his life into the project, and most of the money went towards materials and labour to cut and weld the steel. He tells My Weekly Preview that if he tallied the hours he put into it, his wage would have been less than $10 an hour to create what has been hailed far and wide as a brilliant piece of public art. The backlash was unfair, but it did raise the question: what is the value of public art and is the money justified? Should the Sunshine Coast Council be investing our hard-earned cash in public art we may or may not like and what responsibility do developers have to include public art in the estates burgeoning across the Coast? According to Mr Anderson, the value of public art can’t be underestimated and the general public doesn’t realise how much something like a simple footpath costs, let alone a hand-crafted, eight-tonne sculpture with thousands of interconnecting pieces of Australian steel. “As far as artwork goes, $220,000 is not even up there at all,” he says. “I could see why people thought it was a lot of money but that’s because they have no experience of what it costs to make something like that. There are so many costs that people have no idea about that eclipse what I’m doing. “Although that one was paid for privately, a lot of my work is paid for by government,” he says. “I didn’t engage with the Facebook critics because I didn’t want to be drawn into the argument that art
is not justified if it’s paid for with public money. “Public art is about us thinking differently about the world,” he says. “Proportionally in a project, in the scope of an entire budget for a precinct, a sculpture like that is a tiny percentage that might become the thing that defines the entire site, so it gets a greater benefit than the financial cost. “With that one at the hospital, the idea is to give you hope and something to enrich you and to think positively about your experience. You don’t necessarily get that by a hospital’s architecture, you get it by a thing that’s playful. I got a random email from a person who searched me out. Their partner
Julie Hauritz, public arts officer got very sick and she said that the sculpture actually gave them the power to want to get better and make it so they could walk to the sculpture and touch it. “As a general rule, the response to my work is fairly positive but you do have to have a thick skin because not everyone gets art and they think there should be a carpark there. The boy has a bit of a serious message underneath it all about rehabilitation, but it’s meant to be fun and joyous. That’s my thing about public art – I try to lighten things up a bit. I’m not trying to offend people and I’m not political in any way.” Between September and November last year, the Sunshine Coast Council and the Sunshine Coast Arts Advisory Board called for community submissions to help draft a 20-year Sunshine Coast Arts Plan. The draft plan will be presented to the council in April and then released for broad community consultation. When the call for submissions was made, one online critic responded: “I always wondered whether it’s the council’s job to run arts, festivals and spend massive amounts of money attracting new events. myweeklypreview.com.au
26/03/2018 4:07:05 PM
FEATURE STORY Their core work is surely to maintain assets and services, which are essential, such as roads, waste, planning sustainable development, etc. I don’t the think arts are within the council’s remit and it particularly pis*es me off when I see part of my rates being spent in areas I don’t think I ever agreed to.” It’s a sentiment shared by others and one Julie Hauritz is familiar with. As the Sunshine Coast Council’s public arts officer, she spends
have a dialogue with a piece of artwork – you question what it is, what it means and how it makes you feel. Those things embedded in that experience create deep memories. Usually people have a really emotional response to public art – it can be good or bad. There are so many layers to the benefits. It’s a place-making tool, it really builds what the cultural identity is to that region and creates a sense of distinction.
Impossible Machines, Impossible Solutions by Kyle Hughes-Odgers & Andrew Frazer a lot of time dispelling myths about public art and its cost-benefit ratio. She’s responsible for all public art projects the council delivers and also manages community public art projects, such as the iDIDIT! sculpture. In her opinion, it’s not a matter of too much money being spent on public art, but not enough. “From council’s perspective, we have a very small percentage of money put towards public art outcomes. What we spend is way less than one per cent of the budget, and that’s just in capital works budgets, that’s not including waste and road services. It’s a very small amount and quite sadly, when there’s budget cuts, public arts is one of the things that gets cut.” So, what is the value of public art? “Public art is a really key element to create a sense of connection and meaning making to the community and visitors,” says Ms Hauritz. “How that works is you
“It’s really about making us unique. We don’t want to look like Logan Central or the backstreets of the Gold Coast – those are the places that don’t have cultural activities and outcomes in the form of public art. “It’s about creating a distinctive character for the Sunshine Coast and it’s a real driver for the economy. There’s so much it will leverage, from construction companies and engineers to fabricators and people that produce the materials that create the artworks. Also, a lot of technology these days is used in public art, which is in keeping with the push for smart cities.” While the council’s investment in public art is comparatively small, the sky’s the limit when it comes to private investment. Developers are required to include a public art strategy as part of their development application, which can include things like unique seating designs
or lighting elements. “We are in the process of educating the developers,” says Ms Hauritz. “A lot would like to just put in a flashing light. They’re starting to understand more now and certainly with Stockland, we all learnt a lot with iDIDIT!. It was a really iconic, memorable moment. It provided an opportunity for the developer to see the value of what art can bring. It’s a photo opportunity for visitors as well as a point of interest for people in hospital. The email Russell received from the woman who had a sick husband – that’s exactly what we’d hope public art could provide. A sense of hope and connection to a personal experience. They were uplifted by it.” Mark McMahon, senior development manager at Stockland, said the $220,000 was “absolutely” money well spent and that iDIDIT! has become a popular landmark for locals and visitors alike. “The positive response to this artwork has been fantastic,” Mr McMahon says. “Public artwork, such as the iDIDIT! sculpture, are incredibly valuable assets as they reflect the essence of the community and become part of the region’s identity. These artworks represent a commitment to creative pursuits and the beautification of streetscapes while serving as a unique attraction for visitors.” Ultimately, while not everyone may appreciate public art, the many pieces of public art dotted across the Sunshine Coast bring joy to many and importantly, no one is excluded. “Public art is not confined to a gallery,” says Ms Hauritz. “It breaks those white wall barriers of a gallery, it’s open 24/7, it’s usually free, people can engage in it however they want and they don’t feel inhibited. “The stats from the Australian Council for the Arts show more people engage in cultural activities than sport. A lot of money is spent on sports so it has the upstage in the media. It’s all about the investment. “The incredible power of the arts is we’re developing all this with a minus budget. There needs to be a massive cultural shift and it may not happen in our lifetime.”

BLOOMHILL CLIENT WILL GO FOR GAMES GOLD Buderim-based charity Bloomhill Cancer Care will be proudly represented at the Commonwealth Games, with one of its clients successfully qualifying for the unique community event, Gold Run 2018. Verrierdale’s Debra Walz will line up on April 15 for the five-kilometre race, which coincides with the marathon final. The mother of three and grandmother of five suffered bowel cancer in 2014 and then recovered before breast cancer struck in 2016. It was during that diagnosis that Ms Walz discovered Bloomhill Cancer Care. An avid and passionate runner, she had to qualify for the event along with thousands of others nationwide. Her past track record in running served her well and she made the timing required.

Three roads in the Sunshine Coast hinterland are set to be the first to benefit from council’s new 10-year plan to upgrade unsealed roads that receive low levels of traffic. Kocho Road in Image Flat, Creightons Road south-west of Yandina and Christensens Road in Hunchy have been allocated funding in the Lower Order Unsealed Roads Upgrade Plan. Kocho Road will be upgraded this financial year with Creightons Road and Christensens Road to follow in 2018/19. Council has around 500 kilometres of unsealed roads in its network with around five per cent classified as lower order unsealed roads.
HAVE YOU SEEN A MEXICAN BEAN TREE? The Mexican bean tree was recently discovered on a property in Glenmount Road, Buderim in the Mooloolah River catchment. The Mexican bean tree is listed as a restricted invasive plant and is among the most abundant weed species across large parts of Central America. Duncan Swan from Biosecurity Queensland says early detection and reporting are key to controlling the weed. “The Mexican bean tree has leaves that resemble paw-paw leaves, with the lower leaf surface covered in white hairs. Hollow stems and yellow flowers in clusters are also key features.” Sightings of the plant must be reported within 24 hours of sighting by contacting council on 5475 7272.

AWARDS NIGHT RECOGNISES LOCALS WHO GIVE BACK A Sunshine Coast teacher who led his students to a world robotics title, and a group of caring clowns were among individuals and businesses recognised for their contribution to the Sunshine Coast community night at the Fisher Community Awards. Ten prizes were handed out at the ceremony. Winners include Chancellor State College teacher Fisher Innovator of the Year was Dr Evan Jones, Simon Richardson, STEPS Pathways College, with Mike Gahan and Andrew Wallace Millie Thomas, All Love Pest Control & Carpet Cleaning and Coastal Caring Clowns. The Andrew Wallace Award went to SunnyKids, which delivers thousands of nights of emergency accommodation for children at risk of family and domestic violence.
STUDENTS BRAVE THE SHAVE Five students from Immanuel Lutheran College sacrificed nearly two metres of hair as part of the Leukaemia Foundation’s 20th World’s Greatest Shave. They were joined by 16 other students who shaved, cut, coloured or waxed their hair. This included a group of six year 12 boys who volunteered to have their legs waxed at $2 a strip. The students joined thousands of people around the country who coloured, shaved or waxed to raise funds and awareness through the World’s Greatest Shave. Immanuel Lutheran College principal Colin Minke says the students eclipsed their $4000 fundraising goal by more than $1000. “This year, many of our students were thinking of Immanuel year two student Albie Batty as he bravely battles leukaemia,” Mr Minke says.
$658,157.13 MICHAEL POTTER SCORES ASIAN WIN ACA-Ride Sunshine Coast’s Michael Potter has taken the team’s first win in Asian racing, in the opening time trial at Japan’s Tour of Tochigi. Mr Potter took a clean sweep of the leader’s jerseys and early in the week, led the overall, the points classification and the under 23 classification. It was a breakthrough win for Mr Potter, in his first season transitioning from mountain biking to road racing. He has already notched up several results for the season, including third place in the Australian Under 23 road race in Buninyong in January.
A retired Cooroy man’s family syndicate was one of six division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3825 on March 17. Each entry won the division one prize of $658,157.13. “Me and my two kids go into it so we’ll share it. We’ve being going in together for about eight years. I celebrated last night by having a jam and cheese sanga and a cup of tea for dinner.” The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 24-game QuickPick entry at Belvedere Newsagency in Cooroy.
FROGS GET NEW HOME A brand-new home with a landscaped front yard has been delivered to the smallest residents of Stockland’s Aura community as part of World Wetlands Day celebrations. The annual event, which is now in its fourth year, was celebrated on March 20, and Unity College students Mitchell MacFarlane (11), Jett Maguire (11) and Jada Hawira (10) saw Unity College students and community members provide essential plants and rushes in and around a new frog pond in Aura’s Conservation Zone. The pond is designed to promote the breeding and protection of the acid frog species and specifically the Wallum Sedge Frog – which is showing improved signs of life following the implementation of key amphibian infrastructure including a “frog highway” and frog breeding ponds.

Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve comprises 55 hectares of subtropical rainforest overlooking the Glass House Mountains National Park. A remnant of the rainforests that once covered the Blackall Range, the reserve is a living museum of diverse plant and animal life, which will delight with its tranquillity and beauty. Check out the interactive information centre and set off on a journey to see how many pademelons and other fauna you can find.
The Noosa Everglades is unlike anything else in the region. If you haven’t yet explored this amazing ecosystem, this is the perfect chance to seize the day and take a paddle through the magical everglades. To extend the adventure, this is an idyllic spot in which to go camping. But remember to book your permit through National Parks before you head off.

Raper Shoal is about 500 metres off Currimundi Beach and is well known to the local fishing enthusiasts. But you may not know, it is also a great place to go snorkelling. The large rocky formation is surrounded by plenty of sand and is covered in some great coral with plenty of creatures to meet around the edges of the drop-off.
The Sunshine Coast Art Gallery Trail makes it easy for lovers of the creative arts to tap into the best galleries, studios and exhibitions on offer throughout the region. Spend a day taking in all the art you can, or spread your journey of discovery out over a few days to savour every beautiful piece you see.

6 HAIR TIPS FOR HUMID WEATHER • Humidity makes straight hair wavy, wavy hair frizzy and curly hair even curlier. It’s best not to fight it – embrace your curls and let the humidity do its thing. • Throw long hair into a messy topknot or loose braids. • Keep short styles very short or wrap a scarf around your head to tame the frizz. • Finish your shower with cold water, which helps smooth out the hair cuticle. • Don’t rub your hair with a towel – it increases frizz. Just blot or squeeze excess water out. • Use an anti-humidity or anti-frizz product – they help in the fight against frizz.

CALLING ALL COELIACS: A NEW VACCINE MAY BE ON THE WAY
HOLD THE SAUCE
The University of the Sunshine Coast’s Clinical Trials Centre has launched a clinical trial of a new vaccine that aims to improve the lives of those with coeliac disease by ‘switching off’ the immune response to gluten. Coeliac disease is a serious chronic medical condition in which the ingestion of gluten, even in small amounts, leads to an immune response that causes damage to the small intestine. Sufferers struggle with various gastrointestinal symptoms and, if untreated, face potentially serious complications. Currently, the only way to manage the disease is by the strict avoidance of gluten in the diet. USC’s Clinical Trials Centre director Lucas Litewka says the investigational vaccine will be given to trial participants as an injection twice a week for seven weeks. He says the trial will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr James Daveson at the Clinical Trial Centre on Sippy Downs Drive, Sippy Downs. Dr Daveson says a gluten-free diet is exceptionally demanding for patients, expensive and difficult to maintain as gluten is used extensively in food production.
Jodi Chapman says eating out might be making you feel sick, but there are simple things you can do.
“There is a real unmet need for therapies other than the gluten-free diet for some people with coeliac disease,” he says. “This is a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.” Dr Daveson says the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance in coeliac disease sufferers. Adults between the ages of 18 and 70 can take part in this trial if they have medically diagnosed coeliac disease and have been following a strict gluten-free diet for 12 months or more. Those who meet the criteria and are enrolled in the study will be compensated for their time. Patients interested in participating can go to joinourtrials.com or phone 5456 3797.
ating out is part of daily life, and is a great way to socialise, though for some it can be a minefield, where picking carefully from the menu can become annoying but necessary to avoid feeling unwell later. Often it’s not the actual food, rather it’s the additives, preservatives, and flavour enhancers that leave the effect of being ‘hungover’ either immediately following the meal, or the next day. Bloating followed by headaches, migraines, irritability or severe depression and sadness can last up to 24 hours or longer. Others can feel well following the meal, so cannot make the connection, though suffer symptoms of chronic illness such as fatigue, flat mood, weight gain, fluid retention leading to heart conditions or low thyroid, and sometimes can experience fertility issues, and more. The reaction to these chemicals are
often the same as if we had consumed alcohol daily, and can be quite destructive not only to our mental health but to our cardiovascular system, capillaries, arteries, and joints, leading to pain or arthritic conditions. Ask to hold the salad dressing or the sauce as most, if they come from a bottle, are preserved. These include balsamic glaze or vinegar, candied nuts, seasoning and bases such as soy or fish sauces. Instead choose olive oil and fresh lemon over your salad, fresh vegetables, meats and rice or pasta with salt, pepper, and pure herbs in an oil base instead of a pre-made seasoning. Keep it simple to look and feel your best, and get the best of both worlds.

EVERY GOLFER’S DREAM With the US Masters Golf Tournament on from April 5 to 8, My Weekly Preview spoke to Twin Waters Golf Club’s general manager Steve Hutchison about what it’s like to go to Augusta. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
f you ask Steve Hutchison, golf is the essence of life. He’s loved the game since he first started playing at the age of 13 and you can hear the excitement in his voice as he talks about his impending trip to the US Masters at the Augusta National Golf Club in the southern state of Georgia. “Of all the majors, that’s my favourite,” he says. “I’ve got people asking me to bring them back souvenirs so they can say they know someone who’s been there. I’ve got to buy souvenirs for people who know their grandfather’s birthday is coming up – a ball marker or a tie. “Every hole looks like a piece of artwork,” he marvels. “The silence of 40,000 people when someone hits the ball is unbelievable. It’s totally silent in that area, not a train goes past, there are no planes flying over. They’re the kinds of things you notice that you might not notice anywhere else.” A professional golfer for 10 years until 1991, Mr Hutchison spent a number of years coaching before he became director of golf at Twin Waters Golf Club in 2001. In 2005 he was appointed manager and under his guidance, the club has won multiple awards. In 2017 he won the QLD PGA Manager of the Year and subsequently beat managers from around the country to win the National Manager of the Year, the first time the award had been given. The club also picked up two awards at the Queensland Industry Golf Awards on March 20. Not surprisingly, Mr Hutchison lives and breathes golf and reckons he has the best job in the world. “It certainly doesn’t feel like work to me,” he says. “The bonus in doing something you love every day is it doesn’t feel like work and if you can find that in life, that’s a real positive for you. It’s not about how much money you make in life, it’s doing something you really love to do. “I don’t want to do anything else. I definitely have the best manager’s job in Australia, that’s for sure. I don’t have the committee governance – there is one person who is the owner of the club. Some clubs might have up to 10 or 15 different committees they have to manage. My owner’s objective is: make it successful. He certainly cares about his members and looks after them.” Through his association with the club, Mr Hutchison has become good mates with legendary golf pro Ian Baker-Finch, a Twin Waters Golf Club member who, as a previous US Masters competitor, is invited back to the event each year and is permitted to invite guests. “I was able to get some access and tickets from him that most people can’t,” he says. “It’s the most elusive ticket in sport.
Left: Steve Hutchison in front of the iconic Augusta clubhouse
People who attend are called patrons, not spectators. The only way to get a patron’s ticket is to be on the list and it’s the same people who get the same tickets every year. “It’s different to any other tournament. Rules apply there that don’t apply anywhere else. Unruly behaviour will see you ejected, and that includes shouting or running. If you run up the fairway to see the next shot and get a better vantage point, you’ll be kicked out. The person who supplies the tickets are responsible for them, so if I did something wrong, then those tickets assigned to Ian would be taken and there’s a possibility he wouldn’t be allowed to come back. Nobody breaks the rules because they always want to come back. “They have an unusual procedure to watch the golf tournament. You have to buy their specific chairs at the club. It’s like a picnic chair. If you put that chair down at the 17th hole, for example, you can leave it there all day, go for a walk and come back and sit in it at any stage. That’s your chair. I’ve never seen that at any other sporting event. It’s
very unusual but I’ve seen it at work and it’s amazing.” Tall pine trees, signature azalea blooms and a cooler climate mean there’s little about Augusta that compares to golf courses on the Sunshine Coast. Locals watching on TV will notice the absence of advertising on the stunning course. “The undulation is something that doesn’t get seen much on television,” he says. “The undulation on the 10th hole at Augusta would be like playing from the clubhouse at Headland Golf Club to the 10th green – it’s a long steep hill. When people get to Augusta, they say they didn’t realise how undulating it was.” Sticklers for tradition, the owners of the club haven’t increased food prices since 1979, so while a can of beer at the Super Bowl is $US17, a beer at Augusta is less than $US4 and the club’s famous pimento sandwich is just $US1.50 ($1.95). “It’s about upholding the traditions of golf,” says Mr Hutchison. “That’s how it’s always been. “I love the solidarity of golf, the integrity the selfdetermination, the discipline. You can’t rely on anyone else in golf. It teaches you a lot of life lessons. Young people have to learn the etiquette of golf and show respect. They get interaction with old people immediately and learn life lessons like honesty and discipline. You govern the rules yourself and there’s a good life lesson in that for all of us.” And his prediction for this year’s Masters? “There are probably 30 people who could win but I predict it will be Rory Mcllroy.”

Sami Muirhead has poured a glass of champers and popped on her beret in preparation for the new French festival.
Richard O’Leary is in the nation’s capital pondering the financial and emotional value of art.
f you love bubbles, Brie and a splash of elegance, there is a new festival coming to the Coast that will have you running for your capri pants and navy striped T-shirts. Francophiles, let’s support the inaugural Côte De Soleil that will celebrate all things French. It is the first time the Sunshine Coast French Festival will be held and the organisers are hoping locals will get behind it, otherwise we will lose it. I have seen too many wonderful festivals go belly up because locals simply do not support them with their wallets. We have become a hub for triathlons but I would rather swig some merlot than run a race and risk chafing. And I am not alone. So many of us are smitten with France. How could you not love a country wanting to protect the baguette as a national treasure? Yes, it is true that moves are afoot to make it illegal to sell a stale baguette. Takeaway coffee cups are also on the banned list. The French are too smart to drink their coffee on the run. And bad hair days are not illegal but are frowned upon. Do not get me started on wearing thongs in public. A French woman would never throw on her double pluggers to grab a hot chook for tea from the local store. I don’t think they would even own thongs and they certainly would not refer to ‘le poulet’ as a ‘hot chook’. Nope, Darl, nope! That is all Aussie speak. My obsession with France and all things French has been documented over the
decades to the point some of you would probably like to bang me over my beretcovered head with a stale baguette stick. Quite simply, France never lets me down. France is my soul mate. My inspiration. My crush. My hero. Yes, I know it is a country and not a male actor. But that is how I have always felt about Paris and her surrounding support acts. The first time I went with my husband I cried at the sheer beauty of a cobbled little laneway we were waking down. My husband found this rather strange and was quick to point out I did not even cry at our wedding. Such is the power of Paris. So I hope you check out this French festival coming to Kings Beach. Event director Lynette Croft says, “We believe a good-quality cultural event can only be a good thing for the community. “Many of our exhibitors are coming from Melbourne, Brisbane and elsewhere so there will be lots of products and services that the locals don’t normally get to see and will have access to because of the festival. There will be champagne masterclasses, cooking demonstrations, wine and cheese appreciation classes, a snail eating contest, a world record attempt for the most berets worn in one place at one time and former Moulin Rouge dancers performing.” So let’s be try-hard Frenchies in a few months. But for now I have to dash to the corner shop to grab my hot chook for tea.

uess how much it is worth?” The security guard at the National Gallery of Australia asked the knockabout couple who had wandered past Blue Poles unaware of its cultural or political significance. The Aussie husband and wife tried to wander off without answering but their self-appointed art guide would not be put off that easily. “Three-hundred-and-fifty million dollars.” This did attract their attention – they stopped in their tracks, giving the uniformed attendant their full attention, their previously averted eyes now fully focussed on him with a look of curiosity. The conversation interested me more than normal because I recently watched the movie about Jackson Pollock. Like most Australians, I knew about Pollock’s Blue Poles, in particular the controversy over Whitlam’s $1 million purchase of it in 1973 – by far the best art investment by an Australian Government. Cynics might suggest it was Gough’s best investment full stop. I’d spent a good while just sitting and watching this paint-splattered masterpiece to try to work out what made it so special. The best I could come up with was the cacophony of colours represented the chaotic inner working of the very complicated artist who created it. But whatever it’s meaning it captures
you and the longer you stare at it the more you see and think. And surely that’s the aim of all great art. It was the end of an hour I had at the gallery as part of a rushed trip to the nation’s capital. I always like to get my culture fix. I don’t have any academic knowledge of what I am looking at – paintings just bring me joy and a sense that there is much more to life than the rational and explainable. On this visit I was lucky enough to come across Sidney Nolan’s Antarctic paintings – his famous Ned Kelly helmets replaced by Armageddonish swirls of black, white and azure. Mesmerising paintings which
“Paintings bring me joy and a sense there is much more to life” make you fear ever going that far south. But my favourites as usual were the offerings of Francis Bacon, whose distorted and dread-filled works always leave me utterly amazed, and inspired not to paint. But back to the couple from rural Australia who were looking at the security guard for his final word on the worth of Blue Poles. “Three-hundred-and-fifty million dollars. I don’t think it’s worth that,” he said. “It’s worth much more – it’s priceless.”
Richard O’Leary is a journalist, a political adviser and a father who knows there’s a deeper meaning to life, but struggles to find it.

HOW MUCH MONEY DO I NEED TO RETIRE?
am often asked how much I need to save for retirement. While the answer to this differs from person to person, The Association of Superannuation Funds Australia Limited suggests that a couple requires approximately $35,000 per annum for a modest retirement, increasing to $60,000 per annum for a comfortable retirement. For most people their income in retirement will be met by a combination of superannuation savings and the age pension. Although you may retire whenever you like, there are regulations governing when you may access your superannuation. Generally, you must reach your preservation age before you can access your super as either a lump sum or pension. People born before July 1, 1960 can generally access their super when they are 55, whereas if you were born after June 30, 1964, you have to be 60. Currently, the maximum annual age pension for a couple is around $35,000 (combined) or $23,250 per annum for a single person. This
is essentially a safety net to meet your basic needs. Your rate of age pension is calculated according to your level of assets and income. Any income required above this will need to be funded by your own savings. The average life expectancy for males is currently around 81 and females around 85. So if you plan to retire at the pension age of 67, you will need your investments to not only last between 14 to 18 years, but also to provide enough income during this time to allow you to live life to the fullest. Centrelink applies a means test to determine the level of pension you will receive. For example, if a couple who owns its own home has combined superannuation of $400,000, cash of $5000 and other assets valued at $20,000, the couple would receive a combined age pension of approximately $31,500 per annum. The remaining $28,500 per annum required to provide total income of $60,000 in retirement would need to be drawn from superannuation. Assuming superannuation fund earning of six per cent net per annum with payments indexed by 2.5 per cent per annum to allow for inflation, the super would last approximately 20 years, or until age 87, until it is fully exhausted. To help ensure you have at least $400,000 at retirement, it is a good idea to start seriously thinking about how you are going to save this amount sooner rather than later. Planning for your retirement will mean you can choose to retire when you want to, rather than having to stay at work.

new artistic director Naomi Edwards. The show is inspired by the hilarious rhyme and rhythm of Tony Wilson and Laura Wood’s book The Cow Tripped Over the Moon. “Cow dreams of the impossible, she wants to jump the moon,” Ms Edwards
says. “I wanted to make a show which explores resilience for our four- to eight-year-old audience. When I found Tony Wilson’s book, I knew I had found our inspiration.” Multi award-winning producer DJ TR!P takes to the stage as ‘Houston’ the DJ’ing dog. He’s joined by a cast including Jo Stone as ‘Cat’ and Ashton Malcolm as ‘Cow’. “Hip-hop was chosen as the music art form because it embodies resilience. We decided early on that the only melody we would use in the show was the melody of the traditional nursery rhyme,” Ms Edwards says. “This limitation forced us to find inventive ways to use that melody to express happiness, sadness, fear and celebration. The mythology of hip-hop is born from resilience, storytelling, of rising up against adversity and using language, rhythm and rhyme to write your way out of a situation.” “Resilience is such an important theme for children. Many schools and families are focusing on developing resilience in their children. By making a fun and magical theatrical experience, we also celebrate the importance of trying, brushing yourself off and finding a new way forward.” 20 Minchinton Street, Caloundra theeventscentre.com.au

Look at the world from a different perspective Journey into the world of young Brisbane boy Ethan Langridge in a show unlike anything you have ever seen before. Ethan, a Flipside Circus student, shares his experiences living with Asperger Syndrome. Diagnosed at four years of age, Ethan is now 14 years old and continues to perceive the world differently. He prefers to understand the world through touch, and senses his surroundings with the pads of his fingers or the tips of his toes. He has unwittingly invited his mother, Johanna Wharton, to view his world with him. Ms Wharton describes stepping into Ethan’s world like joyfully walking through shafts of colour and light; a dazzling kaleidoscope. She wrote a book about her experiences with Ethan, which inspired
the creation of the show. Kaleidoscope is a work that allows Ethan to express himself through the physical form that he loves – circus. The show journeys through the ups and downs of everyday life and celebrates the unique spirit of Ethan and young people like him in our community. Directed by Chelsea McGuffin with the ensemble of Company 2, this is one Easter holiday show the whole family can enjoy. Workshops will take place after the show and are designed for the young-at-heart to develop their creative thinking, build performing skills as well as rethink the potential of circus and to discover the circus artists inside us all. 114 Sportsmans Parade, Bokarina scvenuesandevents.com.au

LIFE IS A CABARET SHOUT
Catherine Alcorn is bringing her incredible talent back to a local stage. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
lot has happened in Catherine Alcorn’s life since she performed her ode to Christine McVie, Go Your Own Way, on the Sunshine Coast last year. The award-winning cabaret performer has since welcomed her first child, Jackson, and recently returned from her first US tour, which spanned five cities across four weeks with her partner Cameron and seven-month-old in tow. Ms Alcorn introduced American audiences to her side-splitting portrayal of Bette Midler in The Divine Miss Bette, which she has toured in Australia since 2016. “This show brings audiences so much joy, so it’s always exciting to head out on the road,” she tells My Weekly Preview. “The response was immense. We sold out three of the five cities. On a debut tour, that’s incredible. The shows were a riot. Standing ovations in every city. Audiences making me scull cosmopolitans on stage – thank you, Palm Springs.” Ms Alcorn performed all through her pregnancy until 35 weeks and Jackson was born in August last year. The dedicated performer was back on the road for the Go Your Own Way tour just five weeks after Jackson arrived, and he
made his stage debut at the tender age of six weeks in Tamworth. Ms Alcorn says she would have been pregnant when she last performed at Lake Kawana Community Centre and is looking forward to bringing her son to the Coast with her new show, Cathartic. “Touring and performing with a baby and as a new mum is insane, hectic, exhausting and thrilling,” she says. “Nappy changes on the side of the highway, expressing milk backstage while you’re doing your face. The glamour.
MC WHEELS RAPS ABOUT THE EFFECTS OF BULLYING Sunshine Coast rapper MC Wheels, whose profound lyrics have had such an impact that they have been quoted in Parliament, released a powerfully moving new single called Letter From Heaven. The single, which highlights the harsh reality of bullying, was released on March 16, the national day of action against bullying and violence. MC Wheels, aka Nathan Tessman, says although he never experienced severe bullying, he wanted to write a song telling the story of a young boy whose life spiralled out of control from constant non-stop bullying. The song is the third single from MC Wheels’ second album Dark Side of Happiness.

“But I do feel so fortunate that I can continue to working have Jack by my side. It takes a village, but we’re making it work beautifully.” Cathartic, which Ms Alcorn says is an “anything goes concert” is a stripped-back cabaret show that allows the audience an insight into the talented performer who has done a stellar job of embodying industry greats in past shows. “It’s an evening of observations, over-sharing singing and storytelling from my time on the road and in the biz. A chance for the audience to get to know me,” she says. “I’m backed by an acoustic band of three strapping lads – piano, guitar and percussion – who sing too, so you’ve got some stunning four part harmony vocals going on.” The song line-up will also keep you guessing, with rearrangements of iconic songs from Led Zeppelin, Blondie, Beyoncé and even Coolio, which Ms Alcorn says has been given a prohibition makeover. Cathartic will be at the Lake Kawana Community Centre on April 5 at 7.30pm. Tickets are available at scvenuesandevents.com.au.

INTRODUCING EL HABLADOR
FRIDAY, MARCH 30 Mo Swagger, Maroochy Surf Club, 7.30pm Som de Calcada, ‘A Night in France’, The Piano Bar, 8pm
SATURDAY, MARCH 31
Who is the one they call El Hablador? It is Ross Noble. You know? Long hair, does stand up where he dances about the stage, spinning out all the nonsense in his head into a show? But what is the legend of El Hablador? Mr Noble admits it is just him coming up with a name for his show, so he can make out like he is some sort of mysterious shadowy figure. Following 14 sell-out tours, the king of improvisational comedy is back with another mind-blowing Australian tour titled El Hablador. With an on-stage presence like no other, his exuberance, spontaneity and cerebral style have established him as one of the world’s best-loved comedians.

You’re in the mood to be controversial, but that could lead to unexpected consequences. Just remember – some things are best left unsaid. It is a suitable time to look at your aspirations in a realistic way. Are you doing what you want to do?
Mercury (your ruling planet) is still retrograde and makes some very tricky aspects to Saturn and Mars. With a patient and intelligent approach you’ll muddle through. If you expect things to run smoothly, you’re set for a week of disappointments.
Expect some drama, as retrograde Mercury stirs up issues with a loved one. Use your substantial diplomatic talents to help find practical solutions to potential problems. On the weekend, Venus/Saturn aspects encourage ambitious plans.
This week it’s important to steer clear of criticism. Avoid letting negative self-talk drag you down and stop worrying about all the personal qualities you perceive you don’t have. With Jupiter visiting your sign, you have to be your number one fan.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
Speedy Sagittarians are in the mood to be rash! Making a snappy decision seems like a good idea, but it could backfire badly. And it will be incredibly easy to put your foot firmly in your mouth. So think twice before you blurt out something that you later regret.
Expect frustrations and delays, as retrograde Mercury confuses communication and Saturn slows things down. Don’t stress. There will always be mountains to climb. But perhaps a friend or relative needs your attention right here and now?
Be extra careful when emailing, texting or tweeting this week, as it will be very easy to send the wrong message to the wrong person. And impulsive actions could lead to an argument or accident so proceed with plenty of caution.
This week your self-esteem will be a bit shaky. You could also face a reality check when you find out that a perceived friend is actually a frenemy. Time to delete them from your daily timeline and stick with supportive old friends who support your dreams.

MICHAEL MATUSIK’S TAKE ON THE FUTURE OF COAST DEVELOPMENTS Smaller lots and more compact homes close to amenities – this is the future of housing on the Sunshine Coast. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
he renowned Brisbane-based analyst Michael Matusik says the Sunshine Coast is unique in many aspects, but when it comes to the requirements of the region’s future developments, we are in sync with a national trend towards smaller homes near larger community facilities. “Studies show if you look at what people use within a house, they actually only use 30 to 40 per cent,” he says. “There are [parts of the home] people walk through and never spend time in. “When property was more affordable, people bought those extra spaces, but when things become tighter, people start to realise they don’t need the dining room, or extra robe space, or a spare bedroom. “This is how people think today and when you couple this with the fact more workers are part-time and are more focused on achieving a work/life balance, there are real attractions to smaller lot sizes, units and townhouse developments.” Mr Matusik says the average lot size has been steadily decreasing, from 800 square
metres 20 years ago to 600 square metres a decade ago and 400 square metres three years ago. “I wouldn’t be surprised in five years’ time to see it drop to 300 square metres and in 10 years to be down around 250 square
metres. It’s what happens when areas get more crowded,” he says. “It will come with a change of thinking over density in the years to come. One of the things I am a strong advocate for, and something I have worked with the Sunshine Coast Council on, is moving from talking about dwellings per hectare to occupants per hectare. “The Coast will have to increase housing density to maximise public infrastructure. This will mean more occupants in existing dwellings, having people lift houses so others can live underneath them and more dual occupancy-type living. “They key is that density has to be offset, so someone buying a 200-square metre block and living in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, one-car-type accommodation can fit just that on their land and they’ll want to be near a park and the shops, bicycle and walking trails so they can offset their smaller living space.” Mr Matusik says one of the main development styles the region is falling behind in is townhouses, but overall, he has

placed the Coast property market into his “upswing” category and anticipates modest growth of around five per cent in the next two years. “There has been so much investment in major infrastructure on the Sunshine Coast and with a population of 400,000, or thereabouts, living there, one of the largest tourism markets in Australia and an enviable lifestyle, the Coast has achieved an economy of scale and it starts to feed on itself, which is a good thing,” he says. “But this also means the demand for property is outweighing the supply and when you look at subdivision-type stock, one thing that’s unique to the Sunshine Coast is that the land is controlled by only a couple of key players. “Developers like Stockland for Aura and Avid Property Group are publicly listed companies, but they only offer things that the market wants, and we are seeing smaller lot sizes, some as small as 188 square metres in the latest Aura Central release, which is geared at affordability and minimising property maintenance.”

PART OF THE PLAN A tailor-made marketing strategy paid off for the sellers of this home.
hen it comes to securing the best price for your property, North Shore Realty’s Ben Thomson knows first in is not always best-dressed. This was highlighted in the sale of 25 Currawong Street, Mudjimba. The property was sold under the hammer at a Ramada in-room event, which attracted 100 people. With four registered, emotional bidders for this property, Mr Thomson says there was “consistent, fierce bidding” from $550,000 up to the final sale price of $693,000. Around 100 people inspected the property over the four-week campaign, with two of the registered bidders coming from interstate and the other two Coast locals. “Our four registered buyers were all located at different times throughout the campaign and the under-bidder was found only a few days prior,” Mr Thomson says. “If we marketed this property as a private treaty, we would have sold it to our first emotional buyer, giving us no chance of locating the remainder of the registered bidders. “With this property, we identified its popularity in the current market, we chose our target audience, researched as to where the majority of them are enquiring from and
set out a consistent structured four-week marketing plan in the attempt to target as many emotional purchases as possible. “We had quarter-page in My Weekly Preview for four weeks prior to our auction day, with open for inspections the same time each weekend. By doing this, we found four ready to act, emotional purchasers.” Mr Thomson says it is important to find an agent who can tailor-make a marketing structure to suit your property.

ONE OF A KIND This original Buderim home has been placed on the market for the first time since it was built, and the buyers are lining up to take a look.
he term once-in-a-lifetime gets thrown around a lot in real estate, but when you see the property at 15 Foote Ridge on the highly sought-after Buderim escarpment, you know you have the opportunity to snag a “oncer”. This home has never been on the public market and its listing has created a stir – people have been inspecting the property by the dozens. This is the first time since the home was built in the 1960s that it has come onto the market. Owner Graham Johnston says the house, which is still an original, was built by the Quatermass family, which owned a highend shoe shop in Nambour in the 1960s. “At the time there were just lines of houses along each of the rivers, and no one had started to develop beyond that, although up here was always considered great because of the view,” Mr Johnston says. The Quartermass’ daughter was Mr Johnston’s godmother, so the Johnston family was able to buy the property in a private sale in 1976 and Mr Johnston’s parents retired there.
They enjoyed the 1108-square metre block with its stunning views over the decades, but Mrs Johnston passed away in 2001 and her husband six years later. The only surviving child, Mr Johnston has decided to sell and he says the new buyers will get something really special. “You can see west of Caloundra almost to Glass House and right around west of Coolum. Nowhere else has got a view like it on a fairly level block of land,” he says. “My father was a member of the land council back in the day and he always said it was among the highest-valued blocks on Buderim; in those days you had to pay council rates based on the valuation of your block and this was rated number one.”
While he concedes the new buyers could keep the existing house in tact as its sturdy frames means “it’d still be there in 100 years”, Mr Johnston says a two-storey home would increase views again to as much as 230 degrees. “I don’t think you could overcapitalise this block; you could knock this down and build a beauty,” he says. Listing agent Chris Pace of McGrath Estate Agents says he has already had 37 groups inspect the property in the first week, which is a “phenomenal start” to the marketing campaign. “So many Buderim locals know how good the location is and are excited because this has never been on the market,” he says.
m Yr L T
Chris Pace with owner Graham Johnston “We have also fielded enquiries from Hong Kong, Brisbane and Sydney. “The fact that it is on flat land is another attraction, as you usually don’t get views like this in Buderim unless you are hanging off the escarpment, so you can live in a solid home and have space for the kids to run around.”
The property will go to auction on site on April 7 at 3.30pm.

with MWP’s man in the water
“Nawwww, what’s up doc?” Well, it looks like we have waves for Easter, but the sad part is it looks like the devil wind is coming to town to play. Damn! Get what you can with a sense of humour. Now, if you are bored why not invite some friends around to watch Bells Beach? Swell is predicted. Let’s hope Julian can get some more points and the jet skis are operational. The second longestrunning surf event will also be on – Pa Bendall at Moffat Beach always has a great vibe. Grab a spot and a few cheeky beers and enjoy the show. Hope the Easter bunny is good to you. Now hop to it!
