FROM THE EDITOR
first met Penny Jane when I was 21. We were young, diving headfirst into our new careers and didn’t have a care in the world. We’d spend nights talking about our hopes and dreams. And the laughter – there was so much laughter. As time went on, our lives went separate ways. Her path took her to the city, where she married and went on to have her two beautiful daughters. We stayed in touch via social media, watching and celebrating each other’s achievements. But, it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I came to learn of her silent struggle. Penny is one of thousands of Australians who live with chronic pain. She has undergone back surgery, suffered endless pain, survived subsequent depression and gone on to become the voice for so many others who have travelled her path. She talks freely about her journey – something that takes courage – and she continues to offer support to other women who are in similar situations. All the while, she juggles work and her role as a single mum. She is kicking goals, an inspiration not only to her daughters but to women, including me. When Penny walks into a room she lights it up with her infectious smile. She doesn’t complain, she just gets on with it. You can read her story on page 12. To all the people suffering with chronic pain conditions, remember – even in your darkest days – that there is support out there. Take care.

DOWN TO BUSINESS Where do you live? I live in Brisbane. I also have a home on the Sunshine Coast where I hope to live permanently very soon. I just love being on the Sunshine Coast.
What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? Currimundiâ€™s lake and beach. It is where my heart and home is, and where I enjoy being the most.
First job? At the age of 17 I went straight from school to join the military to train to be an Air Force officer at the Australian Defence Force Academy.
If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? An express train from Brisbane direct to the Coast would be fantastic.
What are you currently working on? Among my various board roles that keep me busy, I am also writing a book called Women Kind, which will be published by Allen & Unwin and will be in bookstores in September. It is about a global social media campaign I created last year called #CelebratingWomen and will also be looking at the wave of women supporting women we are seeing around the world.
What was the best day of your life? When I think of everything that has happened in my life, none of it would have been as enjoyable without my husband by my side. So the best day of my life was the day I met him. What achievement are you most proud of? My daughters are now 18 and 15 and they are brilliant, confident, intelligent, kind young women. So seeing how they conduct themselves and knowing they are ready to tackle the world in their own way makes me incredibly proud.
â€œAs I am on the board of the ABC, I watch as many ABC programs as I canâ€?
Your family includes? My husband Glen, our two daughters Emily and Zoe, and a cat called Rosie. First car? A bright yelllow 1974 Honda Civic. Favourite book? Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
What frustrates you the most? That I now need to find my reading glasses to use my phone!
If your life was a book, what would be the title? Far from Fabulous. What are you reading now? Personal History, which is the autobiography of Katharine Graham, who was the publisher of The Washington Post.

She has received numerous awards during her career for leadership and governance. Dr Ferguson is one of the speakers at the upcoming Shine Business Women Conference on June 1 and 2, which is proudly supported by My Weekly Preview.
You are happiest when? Whenever I am at my home on the Sunshine Coast. The minute I arrive I relax and never want to leave.
Favourite song and why? Landslide by Fleetwood Mac. I think the messages of being afraid of change yet getting bolder as you get older resonate with everyone. And I love Stevie Nicks. What are you watching right now? As I am on the board of the ABC, I watch as many ABC programs as I can including Squinters, Harrow and Sando.
How do you deal with your frustrations? I find my reading glasses! If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? Breathe. There is no need to rush to achieve everything. You will get there so remember to enjoy the journey along the way. If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? Travel, travel and some more travel. Tea or coffee and how do you have it? I donâ€™t drink tea or coffee but I am addicted to Pepsi Max and Coke Zero.
When was the last time you played sport and what was it? I went scuba diving on HMAS Brisbane in January with family and friends â€“ does that count?
NRL or AFL? Rugby Union. I was the first female board member of Queensland Rugby Union so I am biased.

Living an ache-free life seems like a pipe dream for the millions of Australians who suffer from chronic pain. It affects their work, their family and social lives and their freedom. But there is light at the end of this dark tunnel. WORDS: Penny Jane.
“Around 20 per cent of Australia adults suffer from chronic pain and the condition costs the economy roughly $34.3 billion each year”
y mind is ticking over with countless thoughts as I sit down to write this piece about chronic pain. However, it’s not the usual, “which angle should I take on this story?” or “what will be my opening line?”. Mind you, I did contemplate that for a bit. All journalists do. But today my pain is in a particularly bad place. And what’s mostly got my mind in a bind are the relentless aches and jabs circling my body parts like a school of piranhas on a full moon, getting their daily fix as they feast on the fleshy parts around my spine and throughout my neck. There’s the mental anguish that goes with it – my soul getting ripped in every direction, getting darker by the hour as they feed. Sorry, that all got a bit shadowy there, didn’t it? But life can be a dim place at times for a chronic pain sufferer. It’s the torment of how I’ll manage the physicality of sitting in the chair for the next few hours as I bash out my thoughts. Then there’s the tactical pain management involved. The preparation of how many painkillers I’ll require. And then there’s the overriding fear which is always at the forefront of my mind – that this will be a life sentence. My chronic pain journey began seven years ago when I broke my back during the birth of my first baby.
12 My Weekly Preview | April 27, 2018
I suffered from a condition called spondylolisthesis where a vertebra slips out of line, and it was agreed that the best way to fix this was to fuse two vertebrae together. This is called a spinal fusion. The discs surrounding these vertebrae had also worn down to nothing so I was experiencing bone-on-bone pain, plus nerve and muscular pain. Throw in a couple of screws and a small cage to keep me together, and here I am. Still in a lot of pain, however. And pain that has never stopped, even post-surgery.
being hit in the stomach by an axe murderer. The surgery was hailed a success and I rarely suffer pain in that area of my spine, but I now have cervical disc deterioration which is causing migraines, and thoracic and shoulder pain. My pain is currently managed with the help of a pain specialist, general practitioner, physio, psychologist, exercise and medication. But this all comes at a huge cost. Though I had to fork out $11,000 for my surgery (even with private health), you can imagine what my medical costs have been in
“Life can be a dim place at times
for a chronic pain sufferer. There’s the overriding fear … that this will be a life sentence.” Penny Jane, writer and chronic pain sufferer
I still remember the affects of the surgery almost more vividly than I do giving birth to my daughters. There I lay, while an anaesthetist stood for hours keeping me alive – my bladder and other innards pulled out of my body to create the best access to my lower spine. The surgeon had decided it was better to cut me open from the front and lie my body on an angle in order to do his work. I described the pain when I woke up as
the past seven years, considering a physio visit alone is $120. Not to mention I am now a single mother of two trying to make ends meet. It is due to this dire financial situation that I’ve had to put a stop to my specialist appointments – even the physio. But I am not the only person struggling with this condition and the extraordinary expenses that come with it. According to
Bupa Australia, around 20 per cent of Australia adults suffer from chronic pain and the condition is costing the economy roughly $34.3 billion each year. Chronic Pain Australia national president Dr Coralie Wales says the biggest issues facing those in pain are suicide, mental health and financial loss, which is largely due to a lack of understanding from politicians and bureaucrats. Dr Wales says the media-fuelled “opioid crisis” has a lot to answer for when it comes to the stigma that surrounds those sufferers, especially those who use opioids as pain relief. Codeine, a common opiate medication trading under big pharma names such as Panadeine and Nurofen Plus, was taken off Australian shelves earlier this year. According to the Federal Government a rise in codeine-related deaths was the leading reason for the ban of the over-the-counter drug, which can now be acquired only via a script from a general practitioner. President of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners Dr Bastian Seidel told the ABC that doctors felt codeine was not an effective treatment for chronic pain, and when used over a long period of time, or in a self-medicating way, could be harmful. But Dr Wales says for those suffering long-term pain, “there are really little options”. “The last couple of years the stigma has been made worse with media attention… that people get addicted, and myweeklypreview.com.au

COVER STORY that it’s an epidemic,” she says. “No one wants to be on [opioids]. People are only using it because it’s helping. It might have side effects but at least you’re not in pain and considering suicide.” Dr Wales says mental health and suicide go hand in hand with long-term sufferers not only due to the ongoing pain, but also because of the lack of pain relief available and the expenses that comes with practitioners. Not to mention that many of those in serious pain can no longer work, especially tradespeople and labour workers, who are trying to put food on the table, let alone receive the required care to help them move forward. While statistics on suicide have been difficult to acquire due to a lack of funding, Dr Wales knows the numbers are high. She says most overdose-related deaths are ruled as “unintentional”, but argues that many are in fact intentional, because there aren’t options for people with chronic pain. Medical marijuana is yet to be formally legalised in Australia, but Dr Wales says doctors are already touting the drug as ineffective. However, she adds, “When we say something doesn’t work, what that means is that the research hasn’t been done and there’s a lack of available evidence. “If it’s being used successfully in other countries, why can’t we take notice of that? So people have to go under the law and break the law and use medicines that aren’t standardised.” In February the Federal Government announced it would provide $10 million for research projects that focus on preventing disease and keeping people out of hospital. As part of the commitment, Professor Fiona Blyth AM from the University of Sydney will look at how patient pain can be better managed in the primary care setting, so it does not get to a point where it becomes chronic and interferes with quality of life or requires treatment with opioids. The project is based on the assumption that the key is access to effective prevention, self-management and non-pharmacological pain management. Latest evidence estimates that 83 per cent of people could be treated effectively if they
facts HOW CHRONIC PAIN IS AFFECTING AUSTRALIANS • Around 20 per cent of Australia adults suffer from chronic pain. • More women than men experience chronic pain. • It’s most common in women aged 50 to 54 and men aged 55 to 59. • Injury is the most common cause of chronic pain (38 per cent). • Other causes include arthritis, musculoskeletal conditions, headache, cancer-related pain, post-surgical persistent pain, and non-specific lower back pain.

had access to this type of service, according to the government. But Dr Wales says the biggest problem in Australia is that people in pain are not being listened to. “They are being completely left out of the picture. It is politicians and doctors who have decided that opioids are a bad thing, therefore the whole country should believe that these drugs cause drug addicts. “We need physios and counsellors in the community who are affordable. Beyond the five discounted physio appointments given by the government, we need to find out how we can make programs more accessible for people who are out of work. “If we want to build new models of care, we do something like co-design. We need people in the room who are experiencing chronic pain and physicians, and build models that work; that are helpful, that are empathic, patient-centred, and affordable. “It can be done. It’s just that politicians and bureaucrats get in the way and surprise, surprise the systems don’t work. You’ve got to
upskill the local physios and counsellors. And take the judgement out of it.” Physiotherapist Kristen Barrie from The McKenzie Clinic in Maroochydore agrees that health-care practitioners have a poor understanding of chronic pain. “Historically, there’s a lack of understanding and this has led to poor treatment outcomes,” Ms Barrie says. “Interventions that would usually be successful aren’t, leaving patient and practitioner frustrated and disheartened.” Ms Barrie says an alarming 75 per cent of her clients are in chronic pain, and that low back pain is the most common complaint. “People seem to accept that back pain is normal and is a part of life and ageing.” Knee and hip pain (particularly in women) are also common complaints, she says, with a vast number of patients given a diagnosis of arthritis, believing there is nothing that can be done to solve their issues and it is something they will have to live with. Ms Barrie says exercise is the number one long-term intervention that can assist in chronic pain. “The body adapts to pain in a fairly specific way. Simply put, the body shuts off certain muscles and as a result other muscles need to take over. “This changes the way we move and specifically the loads being placed on joints within the body. If we can teach our body how to effectively move without loading pain-provocative joints consistently, we will minimise pain and its impact of life.” For those suffering persistent pain, Ms Barrie says the first port of call is to see your GP about what services are available. “They need to get in contact with a physiotherapist or exercise physiologist, their movement patterns and muscle function needs to be assessed and from that an appropriate intervention plan developed. “There is no quick or easy fix for chronic pain sufferers. It is multi-faceted and something that has developed over time. Sufferers need to be committed to their rehabilitation 100 per cent.” If you are experiencing mental health issues or suicidal feelings, contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 for help.
Overcoming chronic pain is a difficult task, but physios say that exercise is the best way to improve your health. Kristen Barrie of The McKenzie Clinic in Maroochydore recommends the following exercises for those suffering from chronic pain. Always consult with a physio or medical professional first. Pilates – Improve your mobility, flexibility and mental focus. Stress management and relaxation techniques – Slow down and try meditation. Learning about mindfulness and adopting the lifestyle is also a great idea. Strength and weight training – When suffering pain, it can be difficult to get your head around this type of training. But, when undertaken in conjunction with a health professional, it can have great benefits. Swimming – Gentle on your body and joints, swimming is a low-impact exercise. Rest – Ensure you rest and get a good night’s sleep. Health – Focus on the food you are eating. A well-balanced diet will do wonders for your physical and mental health.

SUNSHINE COAST VICTIM INSPIRES SAFER MOTORING Tragically, 59 young motorists were killed on Queensland roads last year, with more than half the fatalities involving P-plate or learner drivers. These are statistics Cindy Klienhans wants to change through the inaugural Jake’s Memory Ride & Drive – Be Alive at 25 event on May 6. Cindy’s son Jake Dunn died after a single vehicle crash in 2015. Mr Dunn, 22, was driving to his Carinity Education Glendyne principal Dale Hansen and Jake’s Memory Ride new job at Kilcoy when the wheel of his vehicle and Drive organiser Cindy Klienhans hit wet debris and he crashed into a tree at Maleny. He had gained his provisional driver’s licence only five months before. “Drugs, alcohol, fatigue and speed were not factors, in fact it was an emergency situation where he could not regain control of his car through lack of education,” Cindy says. The May 6 event aims to raise $25,000 to buy a simulator for young driver education. To donate, visit gofundme.com/jakesmemoryrideanddrive.
ISLAND CHARITY SWIM TESTS THE LIMITS Swimmers are limbering up for a good cause as they gear up for the annual Island Charity Swim. The 11-kilometre swim from Mudjimba Beach around Mudjimba Island (also known as Old Woman Island) to Mooloolaba Beach has been a much-need fundraiser for the Currimundi and Nambour Special Schools since the year 2000, as well as an endurance challenge for even the fittest swimmers. The course takes participants two kilometres off shore and can take up to four hours to complete. To register for the May 12 swim, visit islandcharityswim.com.au.
$800 MILLION TIME TO GET PLANTING The Planting is set to return from May 4 to 6. Originally a working bee to rejuvenate the site of the Woodford Folk Festival, The Planting has grown into a truly distinctive event on Queensland’s festival calendar. Held over the long weekend, The Planting offers a thought-provoking program of leading thinkers and doers, original music from world-class acts, artisan workshops and a highly successful Children’s Festival. More than 110,000 native trees have been planted on the Woodfordia site. Tickets for the 2018 festival are available at theplantingfestival.com.
LET’S DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN The Time Warp Festival was originally a private event for iconic Sunshine Coast cafe Ricks Garage in 2015, but it has grown into a community celebration that embraces rockabilly music, hot rods, hot bikes and pin-up dresses. The next festival will be held on May 6 from 10am in Palmwoods’ Main Street and boasts 100 cars, 200 bikes, 35 stalls and nine bands. Last year’s festival attracted 11,000 people and this year is set to be even better. For more information, visit timewarpfestival.com.au.
GLAMPING WILL ADD TO AQUA PARK FUN Developer SANAD has announced concept plans for an innovative leisure park to be built on its 25-hectare Actventure site at Steve Irwin Way. The news comes after the recent demolishing of a large mural shed sparked excitement in the local community that construction of a proposed aqua park would commence soon. Sanad’s CEO Bradley P. Sutherland says luxury camping has become an appealing option for holidaymakers across the globe and the planned area will provide for a mix of cabins, powered sites, and glamping tents as well as a range of recreational facilities. This development is in addition to the aqua park plans already lodged with the council.
NOOSA’S LANA ROGERS WINS IRONWOMAN TITLE Noosa Heads young gun Lana Rogers has taken out her first Australian Ironwoman title at Scarborough Beach in Perth on the weekend. The 22-year-old (pictured competing at Ocean6/Nutrigrain Series earlier this year) stormed ahead of Kurrawa’s Rebecca Creedy and North Bondi’s Lizzie Welborn to secure the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships in the perfect end to her season. Ms Rogers is now turning her sights to the Coolangatta Gold, which will be held on October. She placed fifth on debut last year and hopes her strong results this year will place her in good stead for the iconic event. The endurance race consists of a 23-kilometre ski leg, 9.2-kilometre run, a 3.5-kilometre swim leg and a 6.1-kilometre board leg.

The Federal Government will commit $800 million towards the construction phase of the Cooroy to Curra–Section D project, improving the safety, flood resilience and capacity along the Bruce Highway. Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Michael McCormack says the investment builds on an existing $52 million commitment for planning and development of the project. Section D eliminates eight sets of traffic lights and will see the construction of a new 26-kilometre, four-lane bypass of Gympie to complete the final link in the 62-kilometre upgrade of the Bruce Highway between Cooroy and Curra.
740 HERO’S WELCOME FOR OUR ATHLETES
Sekisui House has changed its plans for its Yaroomba Beach development. The move comes after more than 9000 of the 12,328 public submissions were made against it. The revised application, which was lodged with the Sunshine Coast Council last week, showed a reduction in the number of residential homes from more than 1086 to 740. Changes also included the replacement of 16 house lots with a beachside park, more public roads, more car parking and incorporation of the coastal pathway within a 10-metre wide reserve along the site’s eastern boundary. For more information on the development search for MCU17/0095 on the council’s PD Online website.
Sunshine Coast Commonwealth Games athletes came home to a hero’s welcome at an event organised by the Australian Sports Federation on April 18. Among our medallists was Liam Schluter (pictured), who was one of the first Australian athletes to win a medal at the Gold Coast games. The 19-yearold Kawana Waters swimmer claimed a silver medal in the men’s S14 200-metre freestyle on the first night of competition. Mr Schluter touched the wall in one minute, 56.23 seconds, just behind England’s Thomas Hamer.
A Caloundra pizza delivery driver has reached a supreme milestone, personally delivering more than 10,000 orders. When Barry Owen joined the Domino’s Caloundra team, he never imagined that he would reach a milestone of 10,000 deliveries in just six years and the store set up the perfect surprise to celebrate. “The store manager and franchisee set up a fake delivery and were waiting for me at the address with a 10,000th delivery badge and a cake, which was a great surprise,” Mr Owen says. Mr Owen has worked between 20 to 40 hours per week at Domino’s Caloundra over the past six years as a delivery driver as well as assisting with maintenance work.

A BLESSING NOT A CURSE With the majority of parents opting to abort Down syndrome foetuses in Australia, Mike Belnap would like people to know that having a Down syndrome son was the best thing that ever happened to him, and he shares his heartwarming story in a new book. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
ike Belnap would like people to know that being the father of a son with Down syndrome is the best thing that ever happened to him. So much so, that he’s written a book about his life with son Ty, who went on to achieve so much more than the doctors predicted when he was born in 1978. “The doctor pulled me aside and took me to the bathroom so Nancy couldn’t hear. He said you may have problems. You don’t really need to take him home you know. And he’ll never do much.” Mike and then wife Nancy were horrified. Both teachers with an interest in disadvantaged youth, there was no chance of that happening. “When all this happened and the doc said what he said, it was a big shock,” says Mr Belnap. “I had to go back and face my students the next day. In Adelaide, if you had Down syndrome you went to a home called Minda Home. The worst thing you could get called in the playground was not a retard, it was a Minda. I walked in to the classroom and said guys, my kid’s a Minda. From that moment, Ty started teaching people things.” Adventurous souls with a love of the water, the Belnaps raised Ty on a boat from the age of 18 months. “We took our boat and sailed with Ty from Adelaide all the way up to Innisfail in Queensland and back again in a year. The boat was laced with prawn netting so it was a huge playpen and Ty had a safety harness with a leash on it. “We were so concerned about Ty leaving his early intervention program for a year, that when he returned home we would see maybe we had been selfish parents. Ty had semi-normal milestones for everything. In Adelaide, a lot of children with Down syndrome are partial to cold and flu. Ty didn’t have a single cold. As soon as he got off the dock, he got up and walked. He had lived in a gymnasium. Along the way we had a little girl. We stopped in at Coffs Harbour to have her and she went to see when she was three weeks old. All three of our kids were raised on a boat.” The Belnaps, originally from the US, settled on the Sunshine Coast in 1993 and both Mike and Ty were involved with Mooloolaba Surf Club for 20 years. Both keen surf lifesavers, surfers and swimmers, Mike was one of the founders
Mike Belnap with his son Ty of the Sunshine Coast charity surf day, The Board Meeting. Ty attended Sunshine Beach High, where he became a champion swimmer and participated in the Special Olympics for a number of years. Sadly, Nancy passed away from cancer in 2011, which had a devastating impact on Ty. “She was very talented in everything she did and the ultimate mother,” says Mike. “She was voracious in her quest to get the best for Ty.” Mike has also been battling terminal kidney cancer since 2000 and is currently living in a motorhome and travelling through Tasmania, making the most of the time he has left. “I’ve been fried, I’ve been slashed and I’ve been poisoned,” he says. “I’d been pumping life as much as I could, surfing, surf lifesaving, doing weights. Due to my medications, I’ve lost my
balance and I can’t surf or sail anymore. “I said to myself okay, sailing is gone, I’ve lost my wife, the love of my life, I’ve lost surfing to cancer, what am I going to do? I’m going to sail on land. So I sold the house and bought a beautiful big 4WD motorhome. What are you going to do? Sit at home and watch Dr Phil?” Mr Belnap has now remarried and is sharing his life on the road with his new wife Helen, who his three children, Ty, Mikaela and Rhys are all fond of. Mike’s daughter Mikaela, a lieutenant commander in the Navy and currently based in Cairns, took on the role of Ty’s legal guardian in order to give Mike an improved quality of life in his remaining years. However, Mikaela is due to be posted out of Cairns and when she goes, Ty will have to live independently. However, he doesn’t qualify for government assistance as he is deemed too able, despite a number of challenges and impairments. “The NDIS in Queensland for Ty is non-existent,” Mr Belnap says. “We tried to get him into a group home but they wouldn’t take him. He has other challenges; he’s had mental illness for a while.” Mike wrote his book, Down to the Sea, with the assistance of author Candy Lawrence in the hope sales will give Ty a passive income, but there was also another reason. “What people need to understand is, when you have a kid with Down syndrome, they’re the best thing that ever happened to you. “The whole purpose of the book was to provide two things. One is hope for parents who have a baby with Down syndrome. They’re aborting Down syndrome foetuses in vitro, saying do you really want to have a kid like that? People freak. “Ty has given us every possible thing that we could have. My life has been richer for knowing Ty. I want to let people to know that Down syndrome isn’t a punishment, it’s a blessing.” To donate, visit kickstarter.com and search for: Down syndrome parenting: a story of joy and heartache. The campaign closes on May 8. Down to the Sea by Mike Belnap and Candy Lawrence will be available from Mooloolaba Surf Club in August or from monkeyread.me. All sales from the book will help fund Ty’s continuing care.

re you a lucky person? I am that girl who never wins the meat tray in the raffle. I have never won more than $2 from a scratchie. But my luck has changed in a big way. Apart from somehow bagging my husband, and having my beautiful kids, the best thing ever is about to happen to me. Work is sending me to London to cover the royal wedding for the radio. Yes: our Harry! Yes: the actress from Suits! Yes: that wedding! And yes, even the thought of flying for 24 hours surviving on red wine, Panadol and re-runs of Gilmore Girls in a seat the size of a chicken coop is not putting me off the grand adventure ahead. I am giddy with excitement. I have already packed my boots, coat and scarf and I am hoping there is a chill in the British air as I plan to sip lots of tea and eat lots of battered fish and chips and do every touristy thing one can do when one is in London. I am not packing too much either, as I also plan to buy lots of royal wedding souvenir coffee cups and tea towels. I keep thinking my boss has possibly confused me with a far superior employee who works longer hours and deserves to go abroad. But that is the trap door working against us in our minds that so many women allow to sabotage ourselves, called insecurity. So I am taking this gift and running with it to the international airport. I know the royal family brings out the cynicism when it
comes to fans of an Australian republic. But I think even the staunchest supporters of our great country being a republic may share a tiny smile for Harry the day he marries Meghan Markle. I mean, everyone loves Harry, don’t they? Guys want to be him and lead his wild nude life partying in Las Vegas and girls around the world have fallen for his larrikin ways and that disarming charm of his. He is the little rebel brother who has been allowed to not completely conform to the rules and regulations of royal life. I like the monarchy. I think they are the original Kardashians. I also think Australia does not need the United Kingdom now as we are a progressive and forward-thinking country. We have outgrown our motherland in many ways. But our history is forever bound in the simple fact we were convicts who were thrown out of the United Kingdom. Thank God. I would take fresh prawns and white sand any day over mist and marshlands. So girls, start planning your festivities to watch and listen to the wedding on May 19. I feel there will be many parties going on all over the Coast. I will be lining a London street trying to catch a glimpse of that little boy who walked behind his mother’s hearse 20 years ago. I will have a tear or a dozen. And Harry will no doubt be beaming with happiness and pride, as Diana looks down upon one of her two finest achievements: her sons.

$95-MILLION ECO RESORT GETS THE GO-AHEAD
It has been a long wait, but Buderim is finally going to get a luxurious zero waste resort to rival the best in the world. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
ould Buderim become the next tourism hotspot, matching the likes of Monaco, Cabo or Portofino? Heidi Meyer and Kim Carroll believe it can. The Buderim couple lodged a development application for the $95-million Badderam Eco Luxe Resort and Spa in November 2015 and last week, the Sunshine Coast Council approved what could become Queensland’s first zero waste eco-luxe resort. Councillors Ted Hungerford and Tim Dwyer voted against the application, which includes 125 suites, three restaurants, a wellness day spa, conference and function facilities and basement parking for 177 vehicles across a four-hecatare site at 24–26 Box Street by 2025. The council imposed 158 conditions on the development. Originally, the application was due to be decided via delegated authority. However, deputy mayor Tim Dwyer called it up to the full council in October to ensure the project was fully considered. Following last week’s meeting, Cr Hungerford voiced concerns about the potential for landslips during development despite the developers providing two independent geotechnical reports. “(This is) massively outside the town plan in a high-slip zone that has large excavations in the town of Buderim. I am worried about the precedent for future development on the Buderim escarpment,’’ he says. Planning and Development councillor Christian Dickson says Badderam shows what is possible for the
Artist’s impression Buderim community and the wider Sunshine Coast. “We talk about airports, we talk about job creation, and none of that’s going to happen unless we can get some development to support it. We often have people saying why are you having an international airport if you have no five-star accommodation and you know what? It’s a very good question,” he says. “This is really a step in the right direction, this is a really unique, boutique development for Buderim. We shouldn’t be having five to 10-storey buildings in Buderim, it should be fitting in with the landscape.” Cr Dickson says he has not, in his 12 years in the
council, seen residents turn out en masse to support a development in their town and he credits this to Ms Meyer and Mr Carroll’s openness and transparency with local residents and the wider Coast community. Celebrating the news, Ms Meyer says she welcomes the conditions the council has placed on the project. “We actually feel good about (the conditions) because it keeps everyone on the straight and narrow and it keeps them to a song sheet,” she says. “Those conditions are elements that we are really proud and happy to support. “Our aim has always been to create something the community is proud of, with an ethos of creating environmental consciousness in the region and getting the community to all start thinking sustainably.” The process of securing an operator will now begin and the council has given a two-year deadline for this to be completed. Ms Meyer says it is the strong focus on sustainability and zero waste management through its day-to-day operations that will make Badderam, which will be located just a few hundred metres from the Buderim village, much more than simply a green-rated resort. “This is not just a green building– we want to secure the right operator that will adhere to that strong environmental ethos in the day-to-day operations,” she says.

STARS IN HER EYES
3 OF THE BEST
Rising Sunshine Coast country music artist Ali Shield has the world at her feet. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
Take some time out with your littlies and enjoy a fun and creative new program at Caloundra Regional Gallery – Toddler Wednesdays. This weekly event, which is held in The Artroom from 10am to 11am every second Wednesday until June 27, will have sessions specifically designed for two to four-year-olds facilitated by arts educator Lindy Saunders. Cost is $10 with materials included. Visit gallery. sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au to book.
nine-year-old Ali Shield found power in writing songs, stories and poems after her beloved Nanna passed away. She would read them to her parents in their Marcoola lounge room and when she was 16, she picked up a guitar and began to perform them in the country music style her Nanna adored. As one of seven children, she had a ready audience and now the 22-year-old is expanding her musical horizons with her debut EP, The Lounge Room Sessions. Contracting to Virgin, Qantas and Jetstar airlines as a customer service agent for Aerocare and helping out at a veterinary surgery in Coolum, Ms Shield spends every spare moment working on her music. Her EP, which was released late last year, sold out of the first batch of CDs within two weeks and has been rating well on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and Apple Music. Ms Shield says working with Benjy Pocock at Vibetone Recording Studios in Pomona saw her songs transformed into an EP that has made her musical journey more than just a dream. A music video has already been released for the first track, City of Dreams. To find out more about this talented local singer/songwriter, visit alijadeshield.com.

INFLUENCE OF COMIC STRIPS FEATURE IN EXHIBITION
THE MELODY Author: Jim Crace Publisher: PanMacmillan RRP: $14.99 Reviewer: Gill Read Mr Busi’s world of music, gentility and social responsibility is about to clash with that of the younger land developers who are moving in with forked tongues to destroy his home and local habitat. At the same time, Mr Busi, a local celebrity, is struggling with old age, loneliness and retirement. Vulnerable under the circumstances, will he have the strength and humanity to defend the land and those less powerful on it, or will his life take on a different tune? The questions the narrative poses have a universal relevance. Crace’s beautifully gentle and poetic style is underscored by the serious themes in this novel. I found the last chapter of the story slightly brief and bare in contrast to the reader’s detailed relationship with Busi in the first part of the book, however I enjoyed the read very much and the reflection it provoked.
Alliance Française de la Sunshine Coast
The USC Art Gallery’s latest exhibition, The Strip Show, is a KicksArts Contemporary Arts touring exhibition that examines the influence of comic strips on the work of Australian artists Stephen Bird, Chayni Henry, Shin Koyama, Jonathan McBurnie, Brian Robinson and Charles Street. USC Art Gallery manager Megan Williams says the exhibition works on several levels. “On the surface, the works in The Strip Show are fun, colourful and full of recognisable comic characters such Batman, Astro Boy and Monkey Magic,” she says. “However, the artists utilise the pop sensibility and subversive possibility of the comic strip to unveil truths about humanity.” The Strip Show is at the USC Art Gallery until May 12. The gallery is open free from 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday.

THE NUN IN SUSPENDERS INGREDIENTS • 60 ml (¼ cup) light soy sauce • 6 cm knob of ginger, peeled and thinly sliced • 2 spring onions, white and green parts separated, green parts thinly shredded, to serve • 3 (about 250 g each) chicken breast fillets • 300 g broccoli, cut into florets • 1 × 375 g packet thin flat rice stick noodles SICHUAN HOT AND NUMBING SAUCE • 60 ml (¼ cup) canola oil • ¼–½ teaspoon dried red chilli flakes, depending on their heat • 2 teaspoons sichuan peppercorns • 60 ml (¼ cup) black vinegar • 3 teaspoons caster sugar • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
COOKING TIP Top the dish with bean sprouts, coriander leaves and toasted sesame seeds.
METHOD Pour one litre of water into a deep frying pan. Add the soy sauce, ginger and white parts of the spring onion and bring to the boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low. Add the chicken fillets and simmer for eight minutes. While the chook is cooking, make the hot and numbing sauce. Heat the oil in a small frying pan over medium heat until just warmed. Remove from the heat, add the chilli flakes and set aside to cool and infuse. Place the sichuan peppercorns in a mortar and use a pestle to grind coarsely. Transfer to a small bowl. Add the chilli oil, black vinegar, sugar and sesame oil. Stir well to dissolve the sugar and set aside. Turn the chicken over and add the broccoli to the pan. Cook for a further two minutes, or until the broccoli is bright green and tender-crisp. Use tongs to transfer the broccoli to a bowl, then cover and keep warm. Set the chicken aside in the cooking liquid, it will finish cooking in the residual heat. Cook the noodles following the packet instructions. Drain well. Thinly slice the chicken. Divide the

Here are some wonderful tips from Hollywood icon, Audrey Hepburn (born May 4, 1929): “For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
With Jupiter jumping through your sign (until November 8), a personal project shows great promise. But, don’t let negative self-talk hold you back. You have to be your Number One fan. If you don’t believe in yourself, why should anyone else?

This week, you’ll be given the chance to heal an old emotional wound or patch up a partnership problem. Don’t let false pride stop you from taking a leap forward when it comes to love and forgiveness; accept the opportunity with an open heart.
Are you being a grumpy goat? A personal or professional project isn’t progressing as quickly as you’d like. This week’s stars encourage you to perceive delays as opportunities to review. It’s also a great time to formulate your goals for the future.
Prosperity planet Jupiter is visiting your career zone until November 8. But, don’t just sit back and wait for good luck to magically fall into your lap. Astute Aquarians will have a plan and be proactive. Then you’ll really start to kick some goals!
This week, the sun and Neptune encourage you to express your compassionate nature and reach out to someone who needs a helping hand in your local community. With Venus visiting your domestic zone, charity definitely begins at home!

Venus is vamping through your sign, which boosts your Gemini charisma and sense of fun, so it’s a terrific time to turn up the charm factor and call in a few old favours. However, too much hilarity (and no action) will just annoy others (who are doing all the work).

MORE GROWTH AHEAD Residents of the southern states who want to call the Sunshine Coast home are continuing to help push growth in the region.
nterstate migration is a key factor in the population growth of the Sunshine Coast as southerners take advantage of greater affordability and lifestyle. This is good news for the region according to RiskWise Property Research CEO Doron Peleg, who says due to this ongoing population growth, the area is likely to deliver solid capital growth and returns over the medium to long term. Mr Peleg says the Sunshine Coast has delivered consistently strong population growth over the past five years and this is predicted to continue in the foreseeable future. “The area’s affordability has been a major drawcard behind this migration, especially for large numbers of interstate purchasers who can’t afford to buy such great lifestyle properties in places like Sydney and Melbourne,” he says. “We expect the growing ageing population will also help continue this growth trajectory.” He says with low building approvals (at only three per cent for houses and 5.4 per cent for units) comes good demand and alongside that, solid capital growth. There are currently only 3323 house
“The area’s affordability has been a major drawcard behind migration” Doron Peleg
building approvals in the pipeline across the entire regional area of the Sunshine Coast and due to high demand, this is likely to be easily absorbed into the market. There are also just 2581 new units to be added over the next 24 months, which is unlikely to have any significant impact on the market. Mr Peleg says the region has “a good proportion” of residents who make their living elsewhere, are professionals who worked from home, or are retired. “They make up a significant amount of the population, so while a healthy job market is important, in this case, and particularly
for above-average properties, there shouldn’t be too much emphasis placed on the fact this region does not have a huge job market. “Also, the unemployment rate is likely to deliver some improvement pending the ongoing recovery of the Queensland economy following the decline of the mining industry. And while weekly wages for individuals on the Sunshine Coast are slightly below that of Queensland and Australia, this should come as no surprise given the large number of retirees in the area.” Mr Peleg says with a price-to-income ratio of 9.1, houses in the region are considered expensive relative to greater
Brisbane and this is largely due to the low median household income. However, he says the rate is still moderate when compared with those found in Sydney and Melbourne. With a median price of $597,000, Mr Peleg says the area offers relatively affordable houses and the rental return of 4.7 per cent is strong. He says the region is also reaping the benefits from the addition of a number of large-scale projects funded by the local and state governments, including the Sunshine Plaza redevelopment, the new SunCentral Maroochydore CBD, a new entertainment centre at the Big Top Shopping Centre and several property redevelopments.

It was standing room only with more than 80 people in attendance at North Shore Realty’s in-room multi-auction event held at the Ramada Resort Marcoola on April 19. The real estate team did not disappoint with six of the 10 properties being either sold prior or being locked in under the auctioneer’s hammer on the night. The remaining four properties have secured interest from buyers.
It was another resounding success for principals Keith Blanchard and Jay Pashley from the Marcoola office and Noel Mooney from the Coolum office. “We have been running these multiauction events for over five years now and are pleased with the results. It’s great testimony to the skills and capabilities of our agents around the auction process,’’ says Mr Blanchard.

with MWP’s man in the water
What a bugger to see Margaret River cancelled. It certainly suited a few, ahead of going to Brazil to surf in the worst waves of the season in poo-infested water. Will be no surprise to see Kelly Slater not going… wait for it! So the word is they drained the surf ranch and reconfigured the bottom to make it barrel even more. I still don’t think it is right to hold a contest there but it looks fun. Okay, there will be some waves around this weekend plus strong winds. Get what you can and enjoy this great weather!
