never truly knew how much my mother loved me until I gave birth to my own son. Nothing could have prepared me for that unwavering, fierce love that took hold of my heart. Now, four years later, when I hold my son I still have that same burst of pride and love that overcame me on that very first day we met. A mother’s love is truly special for many reasons, one being that it isn’t constrained by biological limits. Mother’s Day should not be about flowers, fanfare and gifts. It should be a celebration of womanhood and all women who have positively touched the life of another in a nurturing way. Stepmothers, godmothers, foster parents, carers, aunties, grandmothers, mentors, mothers-in-law, the mothers yet to become mothers – all these relationships and roles are worth acknowledging, understanding and respecting. Someone who knows this only too well is Sue Brierley. This week, deputy editor Leigh Robshaw had the chance to speak with Sue, one of Australia’s most famous mothers. As the adoptive mother of Saroo Brierley, she understands the wide and varying role of a mother. Sue, whose family’s story was shared to the world in the movie Lion, will be speaking about her own style of parenting next week at a Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network event. We can’t wait. You can read the story on page 20. Plus, we have property, local news and entertainment. Enjoy.

TAKING THE PLUNGE Where do you live? Minyama. I have done so for the past 17 years with my family and dog Roxie. First job? I started working at the Kawana Aquatic Centre when I was in Year 9. What are you currently working on? Gaining my fitness further, working out in the gym to get stronger, and swimming hard to get faster for my next competition. My next major completion I’m targeting is the Pan Pacs, an international meet in Cairns. Your family includes… My mum Michelle, dad Trevor stepsister Michelle, sister Caitlin, and my grandparents Graham and Dell Verrall. First car? An old Toyota HiLux. It was a bit rusty but reliable.

Liam Schluter BIO

r e m m i w s

Liam Schluter started swimming lessons at the age of two, after his parents rescued him when he fell into a spa. He was afraid of the water until he was eight, but now at 19, he’s a champion. He was one of the first Australian athletes to win a medal at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games – silver in the men’s S14 200-metre freestyle – and also swam at the Rio Paralympics. He now has his sights on the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.

If your life was a book, what would be the title? Never Give Up On Your Goals in Life.

Best day in your life and why? Coming off the Commonwealth Games recently, I would have to say winning a silver medal for the 200-metre freestyle S14 class. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why. I think the turning point for me was when I came second in Australia at the Rio Paralympic trials and was selected onto the Australian team to race in four events in Rio. You are happiest when? I love going fishing in my boat, or off the beach, spending time with friends, and visiting family in Blackall, Toowoomba and Kingaroy on their cattle properties and acreages where I can tear around on motorbikes or do some four-wheel driving.

“Never give up on your dreams. You have to believe in yourself to succeed”

Favourite song and why? Play it Again by Luke Bryan. I lived in Blackall until I was two and my family made the move to allow us more opportunities in life. When we made the journey back home, which was about 11 hours driving, the music in the car was predominately country, and we would all sing along.

What are you watching now, would you recommend it, and why? I like war movies, particularly when they are based on true stories like the movie Hacksaw Ridge, about army medic Desmond Doss who saved 75 men during WWII. He was the only American soldier to fight on the front line without a weapon or gun. The best advice you’ve been given? Never give up on your dreams. You have to believe in yourself to succeed. If your mind is clear and positive anything is possible. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Noosa North Shore. I love driving on the beach, fishing, and camping and having a fire in the pot belly on the beach. There is nothing better than catching fresh fish and cooking it straight up on the barbecue.

What frustrates you the most? Not being able to read proficiently. How do you deal with your frustrations? I rely on friends and family to help me.

If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything what would it be? To have fun and be careful with your money so you can work towards a goal of having your own unit or house early in life and put some away for travel.

If you could have dinner with any three people dead or alive who would they be? Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson would be cool, David Attenborough as he has travelled the world bringing us the most amazing pictures and fascinating insight into the animal kingdom, and Delta Goodrem as she is hot! And has a beautiful voice. If you won $1 million how would you spend it? I would buy a property as I love the open country, so I can drive my 4WD or motorbike around. I can be self-sufficient too, having homegrown vegetables and fruit, and producing my own beef and sheep. NRL or AFL? I follow NRL. Go the Broncos!

Emerging and established artists are drawn together at the Immanuel Arts Festival, which has been a springboard for many creatives who’ve gone on to win major awards and establish successful careers. WORDS Leigh Robshaw.

“Immanuel’s sales record clearly shows that art by the people for the people is a successful concept that is worth supporting”

Julia riding on an emu I photographed at Australia Zoo. “Another technique that reinforces the painterliness of an image is applying a texture, meaning a high-resolution photograph of any texture such as paper, marble, etc on top of the image using Photoshop blending modes. I love using paper textures over my backgrounds, as it simplifies them and gives the illusion of a painting, a technique I also used in Nautilus.” Represented by Lethbridge Gallery in Brisbane, Mrs Riley is the artist in focus at this year’s Immanuel Arts Festival and



young girl in a midnight-blue gown rides an emu through a desolate landscape, a nautilus shell in her hand, no shoes on feet. It’s a surreal image, not quite a her fe photograph and not quite a painting, but photo intriguing blend of both. an int The T piece is called Nautilus and it has been shortlisted for the 65th Blake Art Prize, which offers $35,000 in prize money and is of Australia’s most prestigious art awards. one o Photographic artist Dasha Riley from P Woombye is thrilled. With her beaming smile Woom joyful spirit, her persona is a stark and jo contrast to her haunting, almost gothic work, contr where waif-like children float through moody settings in photographs she manipulates to settin give tthem the effect of a Renaissance or Golden Age painting. Golde “In “I my earlier works, I hardly used any Photoshop and created the ‘painterly’ effect Photo mostly by using a single light source and mostl lighting, which allowed my subject to soft li disappear into the darkness, an effect found disap many old masters paintings,” she says. in m found the best way to create ‘painterly’ “I fou art portraits was to look at paintings that fine a inspire me and copy the mood, lighting inspi and colours of those images. ““Later on, I started using a method called compositing in Photoshop, which call combines several images into a single com image. To use this technique successfully im and create a convincing illusion, drawing an and an painting skills are essential to prevent mistakes in the digital manipulation of an m image. I have mostly used this method im when wh using animals in my images, as in Nautilus, which features my daughter N

Kym Barrett credits the festival with giving her confidence as a self-taught artist. In 2015 she won first prize in the photography category and last year won first prize in the mixed-media category, her work resonating with judges and the public alike. “My images reflect internal worlds rooted in the magic of childhood and personal dreams and visions, with narratives touching on themes of European heritage, solitude, the otherworldly, and awareness of our connection to the divine,” she says. “I sold my first artwork at Immanuel, which was my artwork Lore. Apart from the confidence it gave me, it also taught me that commercial galleries aren’t the only avenue for artists to sell their work. “Immanuel is a wonderful opportunity for both artists and art lovers to appreciate and purchase art. There are so many talented people who create art and might not be confident enough to approach a gallery or might not fit into a category considered fashionable by the art world at the moment, however, their art is extremely likeable and popular. “At the same time, there are many people who would never step into an art gallery but fall in love with art they understand and are able to appreciate and afford. Immanuel’s sales record clearly shows that art by the myweeklypreview.com.au

people for the people is a successful concept that is worth supporting.” Melissa Evans has been the convener of the festival since 2014 and volunteers 10 hours a week for six months leading up to the event, and 10 hours a day as it draws closer. She says hundreds of volunteers help make the event a success, and she loves the opportunity it gives both emerging and experienced artists, as well as students, to exhibit in the same space. “We don’t put any distinction on whether they are a first-time artist or not,” she says. “The way we display the work is with similar-themed pieces together, like abstracts or landscapes. Because there are so many artists, it is a good space to hang their work if they’ve not been displayed before. “A lot of people aren’t necessarily going to have their own show. At a gallery you have to have a number of pieces at a certain level. Here, you can hang a piece, put it up for sale, show it off and not feel so self-conscious, because there are hundreds of pieces there. It’s not as scary as going into a gallery and having to put together a display.” Coolum artist Chris Postle exhibits at Montville Art Gallery, Moulton Gallery in Sydney and the Gallery Beneath in Mooloolaba, and has a home studio that is

open to the public. He has been exhibiting at the Immanuel Arts Festival for eight years. “My work is evolving all the time,” he says. “When I started entering Immanuel I was breaking into Impressionist styles, mostly theme-based from our beautiful diversity of natural flora and fauna surrounding us. When I was artist in focus a few years back, I showcased a cross section of waves and Impressionist flora, banksia and melaleuca trees. “It’s a great chance to interact with your viewers, network amongst other artists and hopefully win a prize or sell a painting or two. “We are quite lucky these days to have internet as a marketing tool, but with art, most people tend to be a bit more impulsive with their spending if they can see the product in the flesh.” Mr Postle says he’s experienced plenty of highs and lows in his 27-year career and is finally starting to take some positive leaps. “I was chosen by a design company to help fit out super yachts and have so far worked on supplying paintings for two 80-metre boats. “I always enter competitions and have exhibitions, recently being invited to London to participate in the Parallax Art Fair which was held in old Chelsea Town

Hall, which was an amazing experience. “I was very fortunate in the Immanuel show on a couple of occasions to win best local artist, and I was also a people’s choice winner one year. I do work very hard at my profession and nothing comes easy. You just make sure you have some fun along the way. “Any publicity or opportunities to place your work in front of an audience always helps your journey,” he adds. “A lot of the industry is about marketing, having a product that people are interested in and putting it out there. Immanuel Arts Festival has a large audience and being a local also makes it very beneficial to be part of.” Kym Barrett is an award-winning artist from Chatsworth,10 kilometres north of Gympie. She exhibits with Tusk Gallery in Melbourne and Fish Lane Studios in Brisbane and credits the Immanuel Arts Festival with giving her exposure to the Sunshine Coast and helping build her career. She exhibited at Immanuel Arts Festival from 2006 to 2015 and won best painting in 2006 and 2010. Last year she was a finalist in the Moreton Bay Region Art Awards, won the Abstract category at the Mary Valley Art Festival in 2017, won the Open Section of the Rush Festival in 2016, was a finalist in the Sunshine Coast Art Prize in 2014 and 2015 and won the Kenilworth Painting Prize, an award of $17,500. “I use drawing materials with mixed media, to create abstract paintings that aim to evoke aspects of the natural world imbued with a sense of depth and mystery … that there’s more there than a surface consolation,” she says. “My approach is organic and physical, ideally allowing each piece to evolve unpredictably, using a balance of intuition and intention. In our busy world, I am convinced that we need to reconnect with the ‘great rhythms and flows of nature’, as John Wolseley says, and find the still, quiet place within. Ms Barrett was the artist in focus at the Immanuel Arts Festival in 2011. “Exhibiting at Immanuel Arts helped to expose my work to a broader number of people and winning best painting in 2006 and


facts • This year marks the 38th year of the Immanuel Arts Festival • The hanging space covers more than 2000 square metres • The highest-priced item this year is a mixed media piece by Julie Bunting for $4290 • More than 180 adult artists plus students will be exhibiting, with more than 1000 pieces of art on display • In 1990, there were 300 paintings on display and 46 were sold • In 2017, $29,000 worth of artwork was sold • There are six categories – wearable art, sculpture, mixed media, painting, photography and creative (a non-judged section that includes jewellery and pottery).

2010 certainly accelerated the process of becoming known in the Sunshine Coast community,” she says. “Exhibiting at Immanuel Arts is a valuable learning experience for the artist, important as a stepping stone in an emerging artist’s career. “The community has the opportunity at Immanuel Arts to view, appreciate and purchase high-quality work at reasonable prices, often by artists early in their career.”

The Immanuel Arts Festival Gala Opening is on May 24 at 7pm. The exhibition runs from May 25 to 27 and is proudly supported by My Weekly Preview.

Jodi Price, who is bringing the classes to the Coast with her husband Michael and son Locky, says the program teaches children basic ball skills, hand-eye coordination, gross motor skills and confidence in a safe and fun environment. “It is designed for children aged two to six years old. In this day and age, it is so important to get kids active from a young age and start healthy habits early,” she says. Children will have the opportunity to join in a free training session with Mr Slater and the Billy’s Buddies team on May 13 at 9am at the Maroochydore Swans Junior Rugby League Club on Wises Road. Participants must register at billysbuddies.com.au/billyslatersouthsunshinecoast.

BUDGET OFFERS GOOD NEWS FOR SOME Those on low to middle incomes and pensioners are the biggest winners in the 2018/19 Federal Government Budget, which was handed down earlier this week. Low and middle-income earners will get tax cuts worth up to $10.50 a week due to an increase in the Low Income Tax Offset (LITO). The measure will start on July 1 and will come in the form of a bigger end of financial year payment. The LITO was previously worth $445 a year for people earning below $37,000 annually and it gradually reduces and cuts out completely when people earn $66,667 a year. Treasurer Scott Morrison announced the value of the offset will more than double to $1000 and will be extended to people on incomes of around $90,000 a year. However, the phase-out will remain in place and only those on lower incomes will receive the maximum benefit of $10.50 a week. Mr Morrison also announced a multibillion-dollar aged-care and retirees package, which includes 20,000 extra home-care places to enable the elderly to stay in their homes longer and incentives for retirees to start businesses through a Work Bonus program. This program allows seniors to earn $250 a fortnight without affecting their pension and a Pension Loans Scheme allows self-funded retirees to borrow against the value of their home. There will be some tweaking of superannuation rules to help young people to start and consolidate super accounts and recoup any that is lost, while $240 million will be dedicated to putting 2300 chaplains into schools around the country.

The Compass Institute is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting and providing learning opportunities to young people living with an intellectual and/ or physical disability. The institute understands the integral role that service dogs play in the community and created the Compass Assistance Dogs arm to match up assistance dogs to young people with disabilities.

NEW MIND AND NEUROSCIENCE CENTRE OPENS Federal Minister for Health Greg Hunt officially opened the Sunshine Coast Mind and Neuroscience – Thompson Institute at Birtinya last week. The Thompson Institute has been established by the University of the Sunshine Coast as a hub for world-class mental health research, teaching and clinical services. It uses a unique model of care that has put it at the forefront of research for some of regional Australia’s most pressing mental health issues, including dementia, suicide prevention, post-traumatic stress disorder, and youth mental health. It is named after local philanthropists Roy and Nola Thompson, who donated a $7-million building in 2015, then provided a further $3.6 million recently for the purchase of MRI scanning equipment.

A Sunshine Coast teen’s graphic novel turned heads at the recent Supanova convention in Brisbane. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


he next Stan Lee could be residing on the Sunshine Coast. A comic book created by 18-year-old Callum Young and his 26-year-old sister Tatiana Lawton has been making waves in the world of graphic novels. Mr Young was in Year 10 when he first started to create the intricate world of Callum Bond, a fast-talking graffiti artist who gains incredible powers after being struck by a meteorite. With street gangs and police on his tail, he finds he can blast cosmic energy from his eyes, hands and, well, other places. The lead character is assisted by a team of brilliant young women, led by a wealthy astrophysicist, who helps him become a teenage superhero – Infamous Bad Boy – but there are evil forces who know the secret of his power and will stop at nothing to take it from him. The duo released Infamous Bad Boy Volume 1 to great fanfare. Mr Young identifies as a young man living with autism spectrum disorder and while he injected a lot of humour into his work, he says the villains in the comic are bullies “and Bad Boy is just the person to deal with them”. Ms Lawton, 26, says she was amazed at the depth of her brother’s writing and his descriptive narrative helped her translate the story into a graphic novel under Mr Young’s guidance. “Callum had this world in his mind and he had been writing these stories and kind of telling me about them in passing. It wasn’t until I helped someone with a comic for a school project that he realised this could be the answer to getting his story out there,” she says. “He had this depth to the characters and had already figured out their life story and

Callum Young met his idol, former Marvel editor-in-chief, Stan Lee in 2017 their motivations for things. It was really incredible and I was impressed. I got really swept up in the world and when I was reading it, I could already see the characters and their personality, he is a very talented writer.” The siblings ventured to Supanova in Brisbane late last year to release Infamous Bad Boy Volume 1 to a wider audience outside the Sunshine Coast. Ms Lawton says while her brother was nervous at first, he quickly came out of his shell as convention-goers stopped to ask about the comic. “There were a lot of people who spoke to us that had autism or who knew someone who has autism and they were really inspired by Callum and really connected with his story, which was lovely,” she says. “We were interviewed by Supanova TV and also had DC and Marvel illustrators Jon Sommariva, David Yardin and Tom Taylor come up and tell us how much they liked our

work, which was incredible. It’s a complete buzz to get that feedback and know that the things that you put your heart into resonate with other people. It’s the biggest reward you can hope for.” Ms Lawton will take Infamous Bad Boy to Supanova in Sydney next month and they have sent some copies over to the US to see if it can gain any traction there. The duo has disability organisation Parent to Parent (PTP) to thank for helping them to reach for the stars. PTP supported Mr Young to apply for a Regional Arts Development Fund grant, which meant there was greater capacity to explore options for him to realise his dream of creating graphic novels. PTP national project manager Veronica Wain also approached the University of the Sunshine Coast to explore possible avenues for Mr Young to be mentored in his craft. The university’s director of engagement, Dr Eva-Marie Seeto, introduced Mr Young to lecturer and creative Thomas Hamlyn-Smith who says the project has been a joy and privilege to work on. “So many writers struggle to find an engaging storyline and characters. Callum’s work has both with the added bonus of being able to write humour – one of the hardest genres to master,” he says. “I really can’t believe how far we have come and that Tatiana has been able to translate Callum’s ideas in four short months to the standard we see in Volume 1.” Ms Lawton says they already have interest in the second volume and she hopes sales from the first release will fund the rest of the series. Infamous Bad Boy Volume 1 is available to buy at Urban Fiction Comics in Nambour.

The Sunshine Coast is one major step closer to a much-needed rail duplication after the Federal Government announced $390 million towards the project. The funding, announced last week by Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack and Minister for Urban Infrastructure and Cities Paul Fletcher, accounts for 50 per cent of the amount needed to duplicate the 20-kilometre rail line between Beerburrum and Landsborough and upgrade the 19-kilometre stretch between Landsborough and Nambour by extending passing loops, realigning routes, upgrading stations and providing extra parking. Member for Fairfax Ted O’Brien has been calling for a fast rail link between the Coast and Brisbane through the Get on Board campaign. “The current North Coast line is too slow, too congested and very old,” he says. “The passenger trains travel at an agonisingly slow 52 kilometres per hour, which is stone-aged speed when you think bullet trains can hit 250 kilometres per hour. Glass House MP Andrew Powell says the duplication will provide 150 extra weekly rail services between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, reduce train travel times and ease the daily traffic nightmares faced by drivers on the Bruce Highway. To join the Get on Board campaign to support a bid for a fast rail service in the future, visit fastrail.com.au.

MOTHERLY LOVE Sue and Saroo Brierley, the subjects of the Oscar-nominated film Lion, will share their incredible story at a special Mother’s Day event on the Sunshine Coast. My Weekly Preview talks to Mrs Brierley about the joy and challenges of parenting her adopted sons. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.



ue Brierley returned home from a night out with friends in Hobart last week and found her son Saroo watching TV. Coincidentally, the film Lion, which so beautifully depicted their extraordinary life story, came on. Of course, they sat together and watched it. “I sat there with Saroo and my dog Louis and watched Lion from beginning to end and I think it’s only the third time I’ve watched it. It was a very peaceful thing. We were pretty quiet. I was stroking Saroo’s head and stroking Louis. We were very touched. “It was quite surreal. I really appreciated Nicole Kidman’s skill in playing me on this third viewing. I was a bit taken aback by it the first time I saw it. The viewing of the film for the first time in Sydney was a very traumatic experience, full stop. I was very tearful, and I also cried at the premiere in New York. Everyone in the room felt the energy.” Mrs Brierley, her husband John and their sons Saroo and Mantosh were living a quiet life in Hobart when Saroo’s 2013 book A Long Way Home was made into a film starring Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel. The world was captivated by the story of how Saroo became lost at the age of five in India, was subsequently adopted by Australians Sue and John Brierley, and at the age of 30 tracked down his birth mother in India using Google Earth. As moving as the reunion with his Indian mother was, equally touching was the depiction of Saroo’s relationship with his Australian mother and her unwavering love and support. “The film took people into a very deep, emotional place,” Mrs Brierley tells My Weekly Preview. “A lot of people, and particularly men, were quite shocked at how emotionally affected they were. Personally, I think that’s a good thing. We’ve become so numbed by war and death and this took people’s minds off it, to the big picture. And that’s to be the best person you can be. I’m proud of the film for waking up that feeling

Nicole Kidman on the red carpet with Saroo and Sue Brierley and I’m proud of Saroo’s book for doing that. “Adoption is a very sensitive issue and everyone comes to it with their own mindset, their own experiences and beliefs,” she adds. “For me, adoption was perfect. I didn’t feel threatened [when he went looking for his birth mother]. I didn’t feel I would lose him. “What I had was an amazing opportunity to show and share my success and this wonderful young man he’d become. “I was desperate for her to see him and feel him. She gave birth to him. I still have a very high respect for women who give birth and then, to have that loss of this darling little boy. Quite often I would send her prayers. My most desperate wish while he was growing up was if I could send through the heavens a message: ‘your boy is fine, I’m looking after him, he’s beautiful’. That was my big wish.” Mrs Brierley loved the film and has become friends with Ms Kidman, who she says showed her great kindness during the

filming and subsequent red-carpet appearances. But Mrs Brierley would have liked the final scenes after the credits roll, which show photos of her with Saroo and his birth mother in India, to have captions explaining what was happening. “I asked her, through the interpreter, did she always feel in her heart that Saroo would come back, that he was alive? She said she always believed and always felt he would come home. That’s where I lost the plot.” The child of refugees from Hungary and Poland, Mrs Brierley spent her early years living in an isolated environment and with poor language skills in Tasmania. After marrying John, they waited for 16 years before adopting Saroo and then Mantosh. A stunning scene in the film is when Mrs Brierley tells Saroo she could have had children, but chose to adopt. “I had a choice and I stood up for it and stuck with it once I’d made up my mind to do

that,” she says. “Fortunately, I met someone who had the same ideas as me. “When I was at school, I was learning about the sheer mass of humanity and endemic poverty in India. The teacher said the population of Australia was about 16 million and every year in India, about 14 million children under the age of 10 were dying. It really did traumatise me. I think that was the beginning of me looking further afield, to things that were worse than my life. I was a bit of a poor-me kid. India really grabbed me by the heart, so I made a decision that was the country I would adopt from.” Mrs Brierley would love her story to inspire more families to adopt children in need, but adoption laws need to change. “I wish Australia would really get into opening up and freeing up adoption,” she says. “We do have agreements with about 13 countries, but it’s not very well supported by government. It’s very easy to stymie the process. We need to make it a whole lot easier and not so expensive. Just put it out there that it’s a good thing to do and lose a bit of ego, be a bit more humanitarian in our way of forming families and it would be a good thing for the planet.” Mrs Brierley will share her ideas around modern mothering with the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network when she visits the Coast. She’s also writing a book with Saroo to further explore the subject of motherhood. If there’s one message she hopes people take away from her story, it’s this: “My motto is, be kind. We need to teach our children things that are important for humanity – caring, honesty, trust and respect.”

ach day in Australia, 50 people are diagnosed with breast cancer. Prevention is the key. Here is what you need to know.

What is a mammogram? A mammogram is the name for an X-ray of the breast. The X-rays pass through the breast and are detected by electronic sensors, which send the information to a computer. Digital images are produced, which can then be viewed on a screen. Images are taken at different angles of each breast.


can also be used to check for cancer after a woman has noticed a lump or other breast changes such as breast pain, thickening of the skin, nipple discharge or a change in breast size or shape. Source: Coastal Medical & Specialist Women’s Imaging Centre

How long does it take? Around 20 minutes. Generally, the images will immediately be looked at by a radiologist and a report will be sent to your referring doctor. How vital is a mammogram in diagnosing breast cancer? Mammograms can be used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. This type of mammogram is called a screening mammogram. The X-ray images often make it possible to detect cancers that can’t be felt. Screening mammograms can also find microcalcifications that sometimes indicate the presence of breast cancer. Mammograms

GIRLS DAY OUT WITH A DIFFERENCE This month, grab your girlfriends and have a day out together. The team at Coastal Medical & Specialist Women’s Imaging Centre encourages groups of women to visit the centre together for mammograms. We love the idea of mammograms and lunching!

Eating oily fish like salmon and tuna every week may help protect against cardiovascular disease, arthritis and dementia and emerging evidence suggests the rich source of omega-3 fatty acids could also be a weapon against multiple sclerosis, which is on the rise. Preliminary results of a US study of more than 1000 Americans, recently presented at the 2018 American Academy of Neurology’s annual meeting, found people who were consuming fish at least once a week, or were consuming fish oil supplements, were nearly 50 per cent less likely to get MS. Very similar results have been found in Australia, says Dr Lucinda Black, from the School of Public Health at Curtin University. Researchers, led by Dr Black, examined the diets of more than 650 Australians and found the regular fish eaters were significantly less likely to experience an initial

demyelinating event – a precursor to MS. “What I found is that there was a 50 per cent reduced risk of MS with people consuming two serves a week of oily fish,” Dr Black says. Other risk factors include smoking, a history of glandular fever and low vitamin D. Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system. New data from the Menzies Institute for Medical Research shows 25,600 Australians live with the neurological disorder, a rise of 4400 in eight years. -AAP

Sami Muirhead shares some sage advice from the older women in her life in honour of Mother’s Day.

Stuart Collins says we need to accelerate the rate of new home construction on the Coast if housing is to remain affordable as our population increases.


omen are always learning from other women. My seven-year-old daughter could not look more different from me, but we stand the same way with our hands on our hips, she uses the same turns of phrase as me, and she even drinks out of a cup the same way I do. We soak up the ways and words of women around us from the day we leave the womb, and that continues through school, work and on social media. So in honour of Mother’s Day, I asked the important mums in my world for their advice to get through life with as few bumps and bruises as possible. I know Mum’s Day is a day of dread for those of you who have lost their mums or do not have children, but this advice is universal. My mother-in-law Betty has four kids and a wicked Irish sense of humour. Betty’s laugh is infectious and most troubles in life are shared over champagne and a patient ear. Betty taps her champagne flute when it is empty, which means she needs a top-up. Betty’s only fault is that she is completely biased when it comes to her seven grandchildren, and we often laugh at her comments on Instagram, raving about the beauty of each one. “My advice to my kids has always been to believe in yourself,” she says. “Love yourself (but not more than others) and treat others with compassion. Never give up in life, as every situation can be fixed. Ask

for help when you need it. And lastly, ‘try’ spells ‘cannot’.” My wise mother-in-law has also followed her mum’s advice (who had 11 kids). Granny Reilly’s advice is so simple: “Always find something good about someone. They may have nice teeth. If you look hard enough there is always something nice to say.” My Grandma used to say: “Do not have high expectations of anyone and then you cannot be let down.” Funny, but very true. And my own mum did an amazing job raising three kids by herself. At 77 years of age, she is as feisty and independent as ever. She has always taught us to keep friends close and to dress warmly, no matter the occasion. This used to drive me mad as a teenager when I had a flat stomach and crop tops were in fashion, but my mum forbade me to wear them. Looking back I think, well played, Mum. My mum’s best advice to other mums is to “constantly remind your young children there will be consequences if they do anything wrong, as you must teach them right from wrong; they must learn from their mistakes and they must learn responsibility.” We will not be inviting my mum to stay until we clean off the black felt pen after our three-year-old decorated our white walls. And I will leave the last words to Mum: “Have a good sense of humour and treat people as you would like to be treated, as life is short but oh so wonderful!”

he population of the Sunshine Coast region is projected to grow at a faster rate than most larger cities over the years ahead. Faster than both Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The State Government’s recently released South East Queensland Regional Plan projects the population of the Sunshine Coast to increase by 63 per cent over the next 25 years. By virtue of the fact that the Sunshine Coast has been the destination of choice for many retirees, the population in the region is old and getting older. Baby boomers are exiting the workforce in increasing numbers and we must attract more young people to take up jobs vacated by retirees and to undertake new entrepreneurial ventures. In fact, we should be doing all we can to ensure the region can achieve the growth projections laid out in the plan. With all of the natural virtues the Sunshine Coast has to offer, attracting people to the region is not likely to be a problem. The real challenge is making sure we get there without replicating the growing pains felt in the major cities. A major challenge will be keeping housing affordability in check. Some factors influencing housing affordability are beyond the control of local authorities, but housing supply is something they can influence. Unfortunately, the track record on the Sunshine Coast is not particularly favourable. The region has historically been subjected to a lackadaisical approach to planning for residential development in

years gone by, which has produced an inadequate supply of new lots and put upward pressure on prices. The HIA-CoreLogic Residential Land report shows the median price of a new lot reached $280,000 in the final quarter of 2017, which was higher than new lots in either Brisbane ($232,500) or the Gold Coast ($235,950). Furthermore, the report also shows that on a per square metre basis, residential land on the Sunshine Coast was the most expensive non-capital city market in the country, at $702 per square metre. The projected level of growth will require an additional 49,600 dwellings by 2031 and 87,000 by 2041. Around 62 per cent of the additional housing supply is projected to be delivered within existing urban areas, while the remaining 38 per cent will be delivered through development of greenfield sites. This rate of expansion in the housing stock implies an average of 3480 additional homes per annum over the next 25 years. This is above the circa 2700 per year that the region has averaged over the last 15 years. The South East Queensland Regional Plan is the best projection of what the future may hold for the Sunshine Coast. It shows that if we are to meet housing needs, then we must build a lot more homes than we have been. Repeating errors of the past will risk consigning future generations to even less affordable housing than we see today. The Sunshine Coast is a great place to live and we need to ensure it stays that way.

Stuart Collins is the Housing Industry of Australia’s branch manager for the Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay.

Isabella Rossellini’s approch to ageing


At the age of 65, actress Isabella Rossellini has reclaimed her title as a Lancôme ambassador, joining other over-60s currently scoring beauty campaigns, including Helen Mirren, Jane Fonda and Maye Musk, in what is being hailed a ‘grey advertising’ boom. The Italian actress shuns the term ‘anti-ageing’, never has facials (they’re too boring) and can’t imagine using Botox. She’s into ageing gracefully and never misses a chance to wear red lipstick. Her must-haves are:

Pinterest’s 2018 trend report has revealed the most-searched style for bridal hair is the ‘messy updo’, with searches up 127 per cent over the past 12 months. The same whimsical look is being seen on the red carpet. To get the look, ask for a piecey style with a few strands of hair pulled out and perhaps a loose braid or two.

There is plenty for adventure lovers on Tangalooma

THE ISLAND PARADISE ON OUR DOORSTEP Sometimes the best holidays are had at home. WORDS: Tracey Ferrier, AAP.


’ve always ignored those ads that urge Aussies to holiday at home. The lure of overseas destinations has typically won me over when it comes to deciding how to spend my cash and leisure time. But the next time I daydream about lying on a tropical beach, watching my daughter splash and play, I’m going to park my passport and give the credit card a break. Almost two years ago, I packed my family up and jetted off to Fiji for an island getaway.

It turns out I could have just stayed home. Tangalooma Island Resort on Moreton Island, just over an hour’s ferry ride from Brisbane, is closer, cheaper and offers far more natural beauty than the five-star Fiji destination we paid $15,000 to visit. I’m not sure how I missed the memo on this place. “We get that all the time,� says Henk Loosschilder, who came to work at the resort for a few months and is still there 15 years later.

Tangalooma occupies a stunning stretch of beach on the island – the third largest sand island in the world, behind Fraser and North Stradbroke. Almost all of the island is national park and like its better-known neighbour Fraser, it offers towering sand dunes, freshwater creeks, and stunning inland and coastal lagoons. Campers have long known about this offshore gem. But I don’t camp. So for me, Tangalooma’s four-star holiday apartments, with their stunning views of Moreton Bay and stylish climate-controlled interiors, ticked all the boxes. The island itself really does have it all for the laziest of beach bums or the most restless adrenaline junkies. In just two days there, our family of three, including an adventurous eight-year-old, crammed in a tonne of activities. We hooned down a mighty sand dune at 55 kilometres per hour, went quad-biking and indulged in a James Bond-style sea scooter safari of the island’s rusty shipwrecks, encountering a curious

turtle and a spectacular lionfish. But best of all, we got to experience the thrill of hand feeding fish to the island’s famed population of wild dolphins. The dolphins first started visiting Tangalooma 25 years ago, when the Osborne family, who own the resort, would throw fish into the water from a well-lit jetty. Over time, they began turning up on a nightly basis, and now Tangalooma’s dolphin feeding program is recognised as one of the most sustainable in the world. For time-poor working families, Tangalooma is a great option for a resortstyle weekend break, or a longer holiday. There are no costly flights, and no precious leave days lost to international travel that turns kids into ratty balls of pent-up energy.

IF YOU GO: GETTING THERE Tangalooma Island Resort, on Moreton Island, is a 75-minute ferry ride from Brisbane. The ferry leaves from the Holt Street Wharf at Pinkenba, about 10 kilometres from the Brisbane airport. STAYING THERE Guest accommodation ranges from budget rooms and hotel-style accommodation to holiday home rentals and elegant, modern deluxe apartments with 180-degree beach views.

Astrid and Otto Rot are bringing their unique performance to the Sunshine Coast. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.




Students at Pacific Lutheran College have been brushing up on their fencing skills in the lead up to their production of The Three Musketeers. Featuring classic French sets, elaborate costumes, smooth swordsmanship and a tongue-in-cheek script, The Three Musketeers is an amusing tale suitable for the whole family. Directors Janine Delaney and Alisha Janssen promise Charles Morey’s stage adaptation will surprise audiences. “The story is actually told by Alexandre Dumas himself. He interacts with the characters and frames the action as events unfold in front of him,” Mrs Delaney says. The show is on at The Events Centre, Caloundra on May 25 and 26.


any performers will promise audiences will have a good time when they come along to their gigs, but Astrid and Otto Rot are unlike any performers you will ever meet. The siblings, who make up emo rock band Die Roten Punkte (The Red Dots) claim they will inspire “a shift in the way a generation thinks about the world.” “There will be a shift in the axis of the earth during our show,” Ms Rot says. “Yes, through the power of our music, the vibrations of the music, we are going to shift global warming. It’s going to be a serious rock and roll party,” Mr Rot chips in. The outgoing, self-proclaimed super musicians are the creation of experienced performers Clare Bartholomew and Daniel Tobias and in the tradition of Spinal Tap and Flight of the Conchords, they have created an emotional backstory for their characters Astrid and Otto… they just can’t seem to agree on what it is. The pair recently spoke with My Weekly Preview while in character. “We were orphaned as children when our parents were killed by a lion,” Mr Rot says. “No, it was a train,” Ms Rot interjects.

“We had a nasty aunt and uncle who came to look after us and we ran away and grew up in a squat in Berlin with a whole lot of artists. There, we found instruments and started playing. I used to use Otto as an instrument, he made good percussive sounds. If I poked him in the stomach, he would squeak and if I pinched him in the arm, he would growl.” Their latest tour Eurosmash! is the pair’s fourth full-length post-punk cabaret comedy show that comes after years of acclaim, selling out shows in New York, Edinburgh, Montreal, Costa Mesa, Albuquerque and Dublin. Eurosmash! reaches down to the bottom of the Eurotrash barrel to songs that are unashamedly slick pop with “lost in translation” lyrics. It’s the best of Eurovision with a tragically hilarious unfolding narrative. “It can be hard because we are a serious band and when we were at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, people were just laughing and holding their stomachs,” Mr Rot says. Eurosmash! is at the Lake Kawana Community Centre on May 26 from 7.30pm. Tickets are available from scvenuesandevents.com.au.

THE STOLEN MARRIAGE Author: Diane Chamberlain Publisher: PanMacmillan RRP: $29.99 Reviewer: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane The astonishing true story of how a small community in North Carolina pulled together during the polio epidemic in 1944 to build a hospital in less than three days is engaging enough to base an entire novel on, but Diane Chamberlain has gone a lot further with The Stolen Marriage. Readers will fall in love with the complicated love life of Tess DeMello, who at 23 is preparing to marry her childhood sweetheart. She abruptly calls off the engagement and marries a mysterious stranger and moves to the small town of Hickory. Her new husband, Henry Kraft, is a secretive man who often stays out all night, hides money from his new wife and shows no interest in making love. Tess quickly realises she’s trapped in a strange and loveless marriage with no way out. Exploring the racial tensions that were high at the time and of course the story of the miraculous hospital, there are many twists in this delightful novel. As it gathers momentum, you will find yourself questioning where this journey is headed.

SEAFOOD PAELLA INGREDIENTS • 1 wide cast iron pan • 2 tablespoons oil • 1 cup rice, sushi/calasparra • ½ onion, finely diced • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced • 2½-3 cups of good quality fish or crab stock • 4 small chunks of fish • 8 mussels • 4 cooked prawns • 1 cuttlefish • Salt and pepper to taste • 3 tablespoons of chopped parsley • ½ lemon cut into wedges COOKING TIP Place paella in the middle of the table with a wooden spoon and allow your guests to help themselves.

METHOD Heat the oil in the pan over a moderate heat and sauté the garlic and chopped onions until they become translucent (about four minutes). Add the rice and coat well with the oil. Add the stock and bring to the boil, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon. Turn the heat down so the liquid is just simmering. Cook for about 15 minutes until three-quarters of the liquid is absorbed. Add the fish chunks and mussels making sure to bury them deep into the rice. After eight minutes, add the prawns and cuttlefish and cook for a further five to eight minutes. If you listen to the rice it should start to make a crackling sound forming a nice brown crust on the bottom of the pan. Once this has happened, take off the heat and sprinkle generously with the chopped parsley and decorate with the lemon wedges.


“With this dish don’t compromise on quality. The seafood is the star of the show.” From Michael Thomas, Fresh Seafood Co.

ON-TREND: NEW SEASON STYLE With winter just around the corner, colour and design experts are releasing their predictions and suggestions for new season style. Read on to find out more. COLOUR ME PRETTY Colour is one of the easiest ways to create a comfortable sanctuary in the cooler months. This winter, the mood is minimalist, casual and elegant, according to colour experts, Dulux. The theme is inspired by Dulux’s Essential palette. Think uncomplicated design combined with pale grey and accents of putty, rust, grey green and terracotta. Love! “With its soft, muted shades, this palette is all about laid-back sophistication and simplicity. It’s incredibly easy to live with and works beautifully in Australian homes,” says Andrea Lucena-Orr, Dulux’s colour and communications manager. “When updating your colour scheme, you don’t necessarily have to go all out –


“Colour is a powerful decorating tool. It can change the mood of a space and elicit emotions in those who spend time there – whether it’s a cosy and inviting living room that encourages guests to relax and settle in, or a bedroom that feels calm and restful the moment you step foot in it.” Andrea Lucena-Orr, Dulux

sometimes small changes can create all the impact you need. “Colour is enormous fun, so don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and try something new. And the best thing of all about paint – if you decide on a new colour down the track, you can simply paint over it.” Texture will continue to be popular throughout this season. “Think raw, matte finishes and textured effects… all of which will add depth and natural appeal to a space. Pair this with simple furniture with minimalist lines, and accessories in untreated timber, leather and brass for an understated, luxe look.”

HOW TO ADD COLOUR • Use a warm white base • If you’re cautious about adding colour, start small • Add colour accents behind shelving, on the edge of doors – unexpected areas.


TIMELESS TIMBER Timber accessories are the perfect match to textured and warm spaces. This side table is from Coast Store. Visit coaststore.com.au.

We expect florals to be big this season. Move away from vibrant tropical designs and towards moody, dark or subdued pastels that are reminiscent of romance and sophistication, such as the Fleur artwork from Urban Road.

Humidity also prevents moisture from evaporating, locking in taste and preserving the texture of your ingredients with gentle and even heating so that nothing gets destroyed. This way you get a golden brown crisp exterior without overcooking or under-cooking the interior.

PERFECT BAKING When baking, steam allows dough to rise more quickly and thoroughly because of how well it conducts heat. The humidity also prevents the dough’s surface from drying out too quickly and causing resistance in the rising process. Steam’s heat also produces a more complex caramelisation on the dough’s surface, creating thick and delicious crusts every time. myweeklypreview.com.au

GOING DOWN THE ORGANIC PATH Call it chemical-free, earth-friendly or going green, organic gardening is starting to take over our backyards – and for good reason. However, finding the right balance to achieve the best results can be challenging. Leading gardening experts Yates suggest the following tips, which are sure to have your garden growing organically in no time. 1. Improve the soil by mixing in plenty of compost and other bulky organic matter such as bark chips, manure or coffee grounds.

2. Feed plants with naturally-derived fertilisers. 3. Create no-dig garden beds by building layers of hay, compost or other bulky material above the natural soil level. 4. For vegetable patches, use organically grown seeds. 5. Plant bird-attracting shrubs and plants to encourage natural insect-eaters into the garden. Hand remove pests as soon as they appear. 6. Choose natural pest controls such as Yates Nature’s Way Insect & Mite Killer Natrasoap. For more visit: yates.com.au.


tip Mulching is an important part of gardening in Queensland. It helps save water, keeps roots cool in summer and warm in winter, keeps the weeds down and generally keeps our gardens looking cleaner and looked after. There are many different kinds of mulches available, and some of these have different purposes, so be sure to use the right mulch for your situation. Source: Manawee Garden Centre

s it time to give your family room or living room a little love? The biggest question you will face is where to start. Painting, furniture, design – the task list can be endless. We suggest starting with a mood board. Sketch or create a digital footprint of the room, adding colours, materials and products

you like. From here, you will want to decide on furniture. Given that furniture is the biggest investment in an interior design project, spend time finding the right pieces. The material and colour you choose will also have a big impact on the rest of the room’s design.

HOW TO CHOOSE A SOFA FOR YOUR HOME Focus on Furniture’s marketing manager Samantha Clarke shares her top tips on how to find that perfect sofa to suit your home: 1. Size How many family members are using the sofa? What is the size of your room? Where are your windows and doors placed? What is the main function of the sofa? These questions must be asked when you are shopping for your next sofa. 2. Measure up Before you head out shopping, measure the size of the space where you would like to place your new sofa. The most basic dimensions of the space you will be filling should be measured in length, width and height. Write your measurements down or store them on your iPhone so you can have them ready to go when shopping.

Sophie Hendry, the colour and design consultant for Your Asset Renovations, created this handy mood board.

3. Select your style From contemporary upholstered lounges, to classic premium leather suites, there is a wide variety of sofa styles, shapes and designs to suit every home and budget. Consider your choice of upholstery and the quality and comfort of your new sofa before you go shopping. 4. Select your fabric This is one of the most important decisions you will make. The type of upholstery you choose will set the feel for the whole room. The right choice of fabric for your living space will ensure comfort and durability, so it is best to consider your lifestyle. Many stores will include a variety of fabric samples for you to browse through the latest textures, colours and patterns.

Prepare for some professional detours over the next few years, as Uranus activates your work zone. Maintaining the status quo is not a good idea. You’ll find the more experimental you are, the more stimulating the changes will be!

Areas involving travel, education and the way you think are set for some unexpected upheavals over the next few years, courtesy of Uranus. If you stubbornly stick to a pre-conceived ‘perfect’ plan, you’ll constantly feel flustered and flummoxed.

Over the next few years – courtesy of Uranus – expect some shifts involving sexuality, intimacy, joint finances and/or shared resources. Most importantly, keep your options wide open, because things will be changing at a constant rate.

On Wednesday, revolutionary Uranus races into your relationship zone (for the first time since 1942). Your partnerships – whether of the romantic, platonic or business variety – will be radically reinvented over the next few years.





Your life will be shaken over the next few years, as Uranus moves through your routine zone. The more adventurous you are, the more exciting those changes will be! Uranus and the new moon also encourage a more alternative approach to your wellbeing.

When it comes to a child, lover or friend, hold onto your seat and prepare for a rollercoaster ride over the next few years. The less open you are to change, the more dramatic these disruptions will be. Uranus could also send good luck your way.

Uranus shifts into Taurus (and into your domestic zone) for the first time since 1942, so there’ll be plenty of family changes, additions and separations over the next few years. You will begin to see some of your relatives in a startling new light!

In areas of communication, creative thinking, education and/or your local community, expect the unexpected over the next few years! Courtesy of Uranus, your best laid plans will come unstuck as you ride a wave of unsettling but stimulating changes.

CALL FOR STRONGER INVESTOR ACTIVITY The latest rental vacancy rate report paints a tricky picture for local renters. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane


he Sunshine Coast hinterland is the easiest area in the region to find a rental property, according to the Real Estate Institute of Queensland’s Q1 2018 Vacancy Rate report. Released last week, the report shows the Coast has an overall vacancy rate of one per cent, relaxing slightly from the ultra-tight 0.7 per cent seen in the last quarter of 2017. Caloundra, along with Gympie, has the tightest vacancy rate in Queensland, with just 0.5 per cent of properties vacant, and although Maroochydore was on par with Caloundra’s 0.4 per cent vacancy rate last year’s fourth quarter, it now sits at a more comfortable one per cent. In contrast, the hinterland area has remained steady on 2.2 per cent, making it an attractive option for renters. REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella says there is potential for this tight market to produce upward pressure on rents. “Some of our markets, such as the Gold and Sunshine coasts, remain uncomfortably tight and we would like to see more investors enter those markets, however, APRA’s tightened lending criteria is not encouraging investors to consider property,” she says. “The result is tight markets remain tight,

relaxing just 0.2 per cent since the December 2017 quarter. “It’s no surprise that renters are flocking to this market – it’s such a stunning part of the world with employment opportunities – but additional supply into this market would be very beneficial,” Ms Mercorella says. These results are a far cry from the REIQ’s figures from the March 2011 quarter, which showed the region had a 3.7 per cent overall vacancy rate. Caloundra was reported as having 2.8 per cent vacancy in that same quarter, with Maroochydore on three per cent and

the hinterland at 4.9 per cent. Noosa was sitting on four per cent. While vacancy rates have fluctuated over that time, it is clear to see that vacancy rates are among the tightest seen since the REIQ began monitoring the Sunshine Coast market. This has been attributed to the unprecedented level of infrastructure investment seen in the region in the past five years, with continued game changer projects still under construction or in the planning stages to come to fruition in the near future.

Vacancy percentages for March quarters from 2011 to 2018

despite good opportunities for landlords in those markets. “The Sunshine Coast is very challenging for renters who are looking for accommodation and we have said consistently for quite some time that this market would benefit from additional investor activity.” Noosa is also tight, at just 0.8 per cent,

with MWP’s man in the water

Well the Founders’ Cup is over in the wave pool. Given every wave was exactly the same I am not sure it made for exciting viewing like Fiji, Tahiti, J-Bay, Bells or Margaret. You be the judge. It’s still impressive. How much would you pay to surf it? Fifteen waves an hour – maybe for people with deep pockets. Now they move on to Rio. Hopefully they don’t have a sewage problem this year. Locally, the winds turn SW and the temp drops this weekend. Hopefully, we have a good winter of waves. Anyone remember 2014? Best winter waves I can remember. Fingers crossed peeps.
