FROM THE EDITOR

hen news broke that Ipswich City Council had made its decision to cease residential recycling it made headlines around the country. In a time when environmental concern is at an all-time high and scientific research continues to point to pollution as a leading contributor to climate change, it was a bold move. Within days, following an outcry from the community, the decision was overturned and the recycling program reinstated. However, it had already spearheaded an important conversation – what is the future of recycling and waste programs? Will other councils eventually follow suit, driven by the expense associated with these initiatives? The Sunshine Coast Council has confirmed that it is committed to our community’s recycling program and the Local Government Association of Queensland issued its stance: a zero-waste to landfill target by 2028. We felt that it was worth digging into the issue a little deeper. What we unearthed is that there are some exciting plans on the horizon. You can read the story on page 10. While on the subject of recycling, I thought it was timely to reminder readers of My Weekly Preview’s sustainable stance. Our magazine is printed on paper stock that is stamped with the PEFC logo – the world’s leading forest certification organisation.

QUICK CHAT

SOUND WISDOM Where do you live? I currently live in Brisbane and spend a lot of time on the Sunshine Coast.

and I also love the rainforests, especially Mary Cairncross. But it is hard to beat the beaches.

First job? I worked in a pet shop with the main task of hand-feeding baby birds, which I was pretty happy about at the time.

If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? It’s great to see the Sunshine Coast making positive changes towards a sustainable future, but there are still many areas that could be improved. One example is the shark control program, which involves nets and drum lines that capture and kill various marine species including turtles, dolphins, rays and sharks (but often species that pose no danger to swimmers). The Australian Marine Conservation Society has called for the program to be abolished and I completely agree. There are various technologies available that have proven to be more effective and this would be a great opportunity for the Coast to actively contribute to marine conservation.

What are you currently working on? I am working on several large-scale research projects exploring the value of sound in understanding environmental change. I draw on this scientific research to create performances and installations to inspire communities to connect with environments we might not always think about. For the 2018 Horizon Festival, I am bringing one of these creative projects to the Sunshine Coast. Listening Underwater is an immersive live performance and augmented reality installation that explores aquatic ecosystems that cover over 70 per cent of Earth’s surface. The work is all based on hydrophone soundscapes I have recorded in different parts of the world over the last decade. Your family includes? My parents live on the Sunshine Coast, brother and sisters in South Australia and extended family in different parts of Australia and the UK.

“Listening Underwater is an immersive live performance and augmented reality installation”

Favourite book? At the moment it would be The Soundscape: Our Sonic Environment and the Tuning of the World, a book that has been really influential throughout my career. What are you watching right now, would you recommend it, and why? I recently rewatched the 2015 documentary Racing Extinction, which I highly recommend. It’s from the same director as The Cove. Best advice you’ve been given? After the last no there comes a yes. I find persistence and timing is key in both the arts and conservation world. That was great advice from Al Gore during a Climate Reality workshop in 2014. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? I love the Noosa Everglades and Lake Cootharaba

What frustrates you the most? Scientists agree that human influence is the dominant cause of global warming. We know how to make the changes required and transition to a clean energy future, but our political systems continue to fail us.

How do you deal with your frustrations? I’ve dedicated my career to developing accessible ways for communities to engage with environmental issues and take action. If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? Bill McKibben, Jane Goodall and David Attenborough would be a pretty interesting conversation about the state of the world. If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? The most important thing we can be doing in Queensland right now is fighting to protect the reef and helping those on the frontline of the Stop Adani movement. Tea or coffee and how do you have it? Double espresso or soy flat white.

FEATURE STORY

TRASH TALK

A backflip from China and a nation’s growing concern about landfill and recycling has forced all levels of government and industry to fast track innovative plans for the nation’s future waste. So, where will all our rubbish go? WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

“Our intention is not to stop recycling. It would be far better to turn it into energy than to put it into landfill” Greg Hallam, LGAQ

D

id you know that each year every Australian family throws away enough rubbish to fill a three-bedroom house from floor to ceiling? Australians produce more than 18 million tonnes of waste per year. This is equivalent to three million rubbish trucks full of tightly packed waste. The good news is that the Sunshine Coast is on track for a greener future. Mayor Mark Jamieson is among many council leaders throughout the state who have thrown their support behind the Local Government Association of Queensland’s (LGAQ) target to achieve zero waste sent to landfill by 2028. The LGAQ set the goal after China moved to severely restrict the waste it imports from other countries to only the most highly sorted, cleaned and processed waste. China previously took about 50 per cent of the paper and plastic thrown into Australia’s yellow-topped bins and its withdrawal has seen the global price for recyclable waste plummet, forcing all levels of our government to think of ways to futureproof the Australian recycling industry. This was further compounded when Ipswich City Council pulled the pin on its kerbside recycling program after finding it would have to increase rates by up to two per cent to keep the program running. It was reinstated a few days later due to public outcry. It is in this climate that the LGAQ has decided to revisit and update its research

into bringing waste-to-energy plants to Queensland and it is boosted by a survey conducted last month by polling company Crosby Textor, which showed 88 per cent of Australians support any move to assist the recycling sector. LGAQ CEO Greg Hallam says his organisation has been investigating the technology and its financial viability for a decade. Three years ago a contingent visited operational plants in the US, UK and Canada. “The UK and Canada went down this path a decade ago, Scandinavia is

the creation of five plants – three in southeast Queensland, one in central Queensland and one in the northern end of the state. The total cost is estimated to be $2.5 billion. “The advent of a waste levy makes it possible,” Mr Hallam says. “We are now dusting off the study we began three years ago to review and update it with technological developments and costs and we expect this piece of work to be finished within two to three weeks. “[What happened in China] certainly triggered this to happen now. We have always

leading the world and there are 140 of these plants in the US,” he says. “Western Australia has committed to building the first one in Perth, which will be large enough to deal with half of Perth’s domestic waste. But we want to build a network for the entire state to deal with as close as possible to all domestic waste by 2028.” To achieve this, the LGAQ is investigating

run our recycling programs at a loss and we’re always subsidising recycling at various points and along the way, the subsidy gets quite large. “Our intention is not to stop recycling. It would be far better to turn it into energy than to put it into landfill, and in the event that recycling markets collapse or some of the waste stream cannot be re-used, turning it

into energy is a far better outcome for the environment.” Mr Hallam says recyclables will still be removed from the waste stream before unusable materials are fed into the plants, which use rubbish as a fuel for generating power, much like other power plants use coal, oil or natural gas. The rubbish is superheated, creating steam that drives turbines to create electricity, preventing the release of up to one tonne of carbon dioxide for every tonne of waste that is diverted from landfill. By-products of this process include metals that can be reused, and bottom ash, which can be used in road base and building bricks. The emissions are run through a series of filtration and decontamination systems. While some may claim implementing this technology by 2028 is aspirational, Mr Hallam says it is entirely achievable. “If we took 18 months to do detailed works on sites and look at engineering and another two years to build the plants, we would be well inside the early 2020s, so 2028 is very doable,” he says. “We are yet to present anything to the councils as at this point in time, there is no big picture, financial feasibility, engineering or location work done. But even so, we’ve had no one say we’re wrong and the SEQ Council of Mayors has explicitly endorsed it and shown strong interest and support.” The Sunshine Coast Council is already taking tentative steps in the direction of waste-to-energy, last week approving the myweeklypreview.com.au

21/05/2018 2:40:12 PM


FEATURE STORY expansion of Nambour’s landfill and endorsing a plan to include a “generation plant that will convert methane gas produced by the landfill into electricity to supply the local power grid”. The expansion is expected to allow the site to meet the region’s waste disposal needs for at least the next 22 years, when an estimated 493,000 people will call the Sunshine Coast home. The plan also provides scope for a future resource recovery centre, an environmental education facility, recycled goods shop and other associated uses. Division nine councillor Steve Robinson says a number of changes were made to the application in response to the submissions received during the material change of use period, including placing conditions on the approval to address environmental and amenity concerns. “The approved proposal will benefit the community by providing certainty for our region’s ability to sustainably manage waste into the future,” he says. “To ensure transparency and integrity of the assessment process, this application was assessed by an independent third-party agency and the relevant state government agencies.” Even as the Ipswich City Council temporarily canned their recycling program, sending at least four days’ worth of recycling to landfill before reinstating the program, the Sunshine Coast Council has remained strong in its resolve to continue and strengthen the service. “On the Sunshine Coast, we have been relatively insulated to date from these impacts as the council has its own Material Recovery Facility (MRF) for the primary sorting of material from yellow-top recycling bins,” a council spokesperson says. “Australian and international recycling markets are volatile, with market fluctuations impacting on recycled waste commodity prices regularly. The decision by China to no longer receive a large proportion of recyclable materials for reprocessing has introduced another level of volatility and complexity to the industry, nationally and internationally. “This issue is also being felt by councils

HELLO YELLOW

Once your yellow bin is emptied into the recycling truck each fortnight, the contents are taken to the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) at the Nambour Landfill and Resource Recovery Centre. The MRF processes approximately 3000 tonnes of recyclable material a month, with only material too contaminated to recycle sent to landfill. The MRF receives commingled recyclables and these items are separated into material types using both mechanical and manual processes. Once sorted the material is sent to secondary processing facilities in Australia and in some instances overseas by Sunshine Coast Council’s contractor Visy.

across Australia to varying degrees, with local government associations – particularly the LGAQ – highlighting this as a concern to the federal and state governments. “The development of suitable on-shore processing facilities is necessary, and this is just one area where collaboration by all tiers of government is vital in resolving this matter.” The council has invested more than $30 million developing new resource recovery facilities since the adoption of the 2009-14 Waste Minimisation Strategy, establishing innovative waste management contracts, increasing landfill capacity and investigating a range of alternative waste management initiatives. With a renewed strategy covering 2015-2025 now in place, the council spokesperson says there are a range of priorities, including support for remanufacturing and purchase of recyclable products here on the Coast. The spokesperson says residents should maintain their commitment to recycling at home and in the workplace in order to reduce

the waste that ends up in landfill and where possible, reduce the amount of waste they produce, reuse items and buy recycled products. While this is going on at a local level, peak recycling industry association Australian Council of Recycling (ACOR) is advocating a National Circular Economy and Recycling Plan. It proposes a one-off investment of $150 million in the nation’s recycling infrastructure, which it claims will allow half of the material previously exported to China to remain in Australian and made into new recycled content products, creating up to 500 jobs. ACOR’s $150 million proposal includes $28 million on harmonising the recycling and waste collection systems across the nation, producing clear and identical information for everyone and running an information campaign. It would like to see a further $33 million on upgrading recycling sorting centres with new robotic sorting machines, better filters and more workers. The expansion of paper pulp mills and building new centres that grind plastic and glass into pellets would cost $57 million and a further $32 million would be spent on promoting and implementing the use of raw materials for infrastructure. ACOR CEO Pete Shmigel says his organisation has had increased support from the Australian public to see a first-ever national plan for recycling, governments buying more recycled content products, and making it compulsory for the packaging industry to produce goods that are both recyclable and contain recycled content. “The community knows recycling makes sense and that’s why they participate. They have made the system strong over 30 years and it’s up to ministers to future-focus recycling for its next 30 years as a domestic industry that’s a key part of a circular economy,” Mr Shmigel says. “The right chords have been struck by [the Federal Government] about investing in recycling’s future, but we did not hear two very important sounds – implementation details and dollars in the till.”

HOW TO BE A BETTER RECYCLER

Do put in the yellow bin: • Paper and cardboard • Glass bottles and jars • Steel and aluminium cans • Plastic containers with the number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 inside the recycling triangle. • Milk and juice cartons

Don’t put in the yellow bin: • Light bulbs, drinking glasses, mirrors or window glass. • Ceramics and cutlery • Styrofoam, polystyrene and nappies • Plastic bags, glad wrap and bubble wrap • Batteries, e-waste and appliances • Food and garden waste • Plastic containers with an identifying number 7 inside the recycling triangle. Recycling tips: Any material recycled should be clean of food scraps and dry when placed in the bin. Remember that lids from bottles and jars need to be removed and thrown into the general waste bin as they cause problems during the recycling process.

Items that can be taken to a council Resource Recovery Centre or Transfer Station for free: • Metal objects such as roofing iron, car exhausts and some white goods • Clothing and clean rags • Engine oil, paint and chemicals in domestic quantities • Items that can be sold via recycle markets such as furniture, toys and building materials, plus e-waste and mattresses.

The festival has supported emerging artists as well as Immanuel students in various pursuits since its inception and this year’s featured artists are Dasha Riley, Farley Cameron and Denise Lamby. The festival is open from 9.30am to 5pm on May 25 and 26 and from 9.30am to 2pm on May 27. Entry is $5 at the door and drinks, snacks and meals are available from the festival cafeteria outside the gallery. For more information, visit immanuelartsfestival.com.au.

The event starts at 10.30am and includes live racing from 12.23pm, the hotly contested Fashions on the Field with a total prize pool value of $5000 and what is sure to be a show-stopping performance by indie pop sensation Sheppard. This is a day by the track that’s not to be missed.

Exercise Right Week is here and Bloomhill Cancer Care clients and staff members are getting ‘motivated to move’ as part of the 2018 theme for the annual campaign. Bloomhill Cancer Care clinical services manager Trish Wilson says the recommended guideline for exercise is 150 to 300 minutes per week of moderate intensity. With the support of Jetts 24 Hour Fitness, an exercise bike will be on loan for the week and will be stationed on the Bloomhill outdoor deck with cycling sessions available until May 25. “We are setting a goal to cycle one kilometre for every minute that we should be active. It would be amazing if we reached 300 kilometres through the week,” Ms Wilson says.

SHARE THE DIGNITY WITH WOMEN IN NEED Share the Dignity’s It’s In The Bag campaign is teaming up with the inaugural Shine Business Women Conference, which will act as a collection point. The charity’s founder, Rochelle Courtenay (pictured) will be the opening speaker at the conference. Conference founder Zoe Sparks says people can fill an unused handbag with toiletries and sanitary items that will be donated to women in need. “There are 85,000 homeless, some of whom have fled their situation because of domestic violence and they leave with nothing,” she says. Bags can be dropped off at the Novotel Twin Waters Resort between 8am and 5pm on June 1 or 8am and 12pm on June 2. Visit sharethedignity.com.au.

CBD PROVING TO BE HOT PROPERTY SunCentral CEO John Knaggs has revealed that “productive negotiations” are underway on 90 per cent of the first 32 potential commercial lots in Maroocydore’s new CBD. Among those are lots the University of the Sunshine Coast has shown interest in. Artist’s impression Although he cannot reveal any details on who the potential buyers are at this stage, Mr Knaggs says announcements are expected as negotiations progress throughout the year and titles are issued.

CCTV APPROVED, BUT CONDITIONS IMPOSED Bulcock Street and Felicity Park are one step closer to gaining CCTV cameras after the Sunshine Coast Council approved an application by the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce to have them installed. The installation of the cameras is being funded by a Federal Government Safer Communities Program grant however, the council has imposed three conditions on the approval and Division two councillor Tim Dwyer is calling for the State Government to cover the ongoing maintenance, replacement and operational costs, and says funding to have more police on the ground is “the best crime preventer we have.”

The Sunshine Coast Red Shield Appeal launch breakfast has raised more than $30,000 for the region to help fund the Salvation Army’s vast network of social and community services, which range from providing shelter for the homeless, assisting families in crisis through practical support and financial counselling, to guiding people with addictions through to a clean, healthy lifestyle. The official launch event, which featured a performance by Gympie-based star Caitlyn Shadbolt, happened alongside other events around the country as the precursor to the annual Red Shield Doorknock, which will happen on May 26 and 27.

UPGRADES POWER AHEAD AT SUNSHINE PLAZA Sunshine Plaza has announced around $40 million will be spent on major refurbishments to the existing centre, bringing a new customer experience to the shopping destination. The upgrades include a revitalised Town Square meeting area and Riverwalk precinct, an interactive water play area, refurbished food court, and a nautical kids play zone. The internal malls will gain ambience upgrades including lighting, landscaping, seating and painting and the bridge link on the ground level will feature two new food and beverage outlets. Centre Manager Michael Manwaring says the centre’s overall design vision ‘Home is my Holiday’ will be reflected in the upgrades.

Surin Beach

SURIN PUTS THE PARADISE BACK INTO PHUKET A haven away from the party crowd, Surin Beach is a pocket of paradise that leaves a lasting impression. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.

S

ubmerged in the deep blue, sunwarmed water, the only thing I can hear is the subdued sounds of sweet singing birds and the gentle lap of the water against the stone. A single, soft pink petal floats down from the clear blue sky coming to a soundless stop on the water’s surface. My sleepy eyes focus on the source of this petal – a beautiful bougainvillea with its combination of lush green leaves and pink flowers curling and spiralling down from the structure above. Memories of past holidays to Fiji and Santorini slide away – this is as close to

paradise as I have come. And to think this utopia is only metres from the bustling, often grimy, streets of Phuket, Thailand. I slip out of our private plunge pool to be greeted by a sun-drenched lounge and cool, fruity drink. The smell of garlic, lemongrass and lime waft from the outdoor living area – lunch has arrived. As I settle in to enjoy my steaming bowl of pad see ew noodles brimming with fresh, vibrant greens, the peace is temporarily broken. My four-year-old son has woken from his nap and has come in search of me. He exits through the bifold glass doors

that encase our two-bedroom luxurious apartment at The Chava Resort and settles in on his own outdoor lounge. Interestingly, the calm and laidback life of Surin Beach is having an impact on his usual inability to sit still for too long. He has happily taken to this slower life of beaching, swimming, sunning and eating. Who wouldn’t? Surin Beach is a world unto itself. Located north of Phuket’s central hub of Patong, Surin has earned the nickname ‘Millionaire’s Row’ due to the number of luxurious resorts that have become celebrity haunts. If you want to relax and holiday in luxury, eat like royalty and swim at the island’s best beach, this is the place to do so. That said, Surin Beach is not a busy area. Here you won’t find shops angled at the tourists and, outside of the resorts, the restaurant and bar offerings are limited. The roads are dusty and the nearby buildings are dirty, but that’s part of Thailand’s charm. One thing you can guarantee in Surin Beach is an escape from the loud, often obnoxious, party-loving tourists who frequent the beating heart of Phuket – Patong. We did not crave the usual tourist experiences, but for those who do, all of the action is only a short drive away from Surin. If like us, you prefer the quiet, I’d recommend grabbing a cane beach basket complete with bamboo beach mat and sun umbrella (courtesy of The Chava) and

strolling across the road to the beach. Here, you can waste away the day, lounging, swimming and even enjoying a beach-side Thai massage. Bliss. The Chava Resort offers first-class service, large apartments boasting two spacious bathrooms, a kitchen and indoor and outdoor dining. There is a main pool and an on-site restaurant. If you are looking for a holiday that blends relaxation with fun, this is the place for you. On this, our fourth trip, to Phuket, we are happy to indulge in the turquoise waters of the beach, browse the local markets (be sure to check out the Kamala night markets) and mingle with the kind-natured Thai residents. The staff fuss over our little boy and greet us like old friends during our eight-night stay. By the end, it was with a heavy heart that we bid goodbye. *The writer paid for her own trip.

LIST FOR LIFE A personal tragedy prompted Sebastian Terry to rethink his direction in life, and he created a list that has not only given him purpose, but has changed the lives of countless others. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

I

t often takes a major wake up call to make us realise we’re not living our best lives. For Sebastian Terry, it was the sudden death of a close friend. It was 2005 and Mr Terry was living in Canada when he got the fateful call telling him his mate had died tragically when a party stunt went wrong. He was the kind of guy who lived life to the fullest and it prompted Mr Terry to examine his own life and whether he was happy. He realised he wasn’t. “I had studied human movement at university and I remember feeling really underwhelmed at my graduation,” he says. “My careers advisor said just get a degree and it will work itself out. People around me were really happy, but I felt really lost.” When Mr Terry thought about the life his friend had led, he knew would not have regretted a thing, but he couldn’t say the same about himself. So he wrote a list of 100 things he wanted to do in his life – crazy stuff, fun stuff, dangerous stuff and exciting stuff. It wasn’t a bucket list, which he says is focused on things to do before you die. His list was focused on living a bigger life. “For me the list encompassed me trying to experience life in a different way,” he says. “More centred around my curiosity, around adventure, getting outside my comfort zone and seeing the world in a different way. Retrospectively looking at it, I realised it ultimately doesn’t matter what we do or what we achieve – and I can only speak for myself – but the list is a vehicle to better understand myself as a person. The challenge is being able to live that every day. I think true happiness is knowing yourself.” Mr Terry’s 100 Things blog became a sensation and in 2011 he published a bestselling book 100 Things: What’s On Your List?. He also has a US reality TV series and is developing a new platform that will connect people who need help with people who want to help others. What began as a humble list

has become a global phenomenon. He’s in demand as a motivational speaker around the world and he no longer wonders what his purpose in life is. “Initially I thought it would take 100 things to find happiness in life,” he says. “Now I’ve ticked off 72 and number 26, which was to help a stranger, was the one that meant the most to me. Once I did that, I realised it’s not 100 things that makes me happy, it’s connecting. What I learnt about myself is I like to help others.” The stranger Mr Terry helped was a quadriplegic man who wanted to complete a half-marathon, so Mr Terry pushed him in his wheelchair and while they didn’t win, the feeling of achievement was overwhelming. “From that moment, lots of other people started getting in touch and it got to the point where there were so many people asking me for help that I couldn’t help them all. Then I started getting approached by

people saying they wanted to help, so I came up with a platform to connect them, which will be officially launched in June.” Mr Terry often uses the analogy of an oxygen mask in a plane to drive the message home that we should help ourselves first, before we can adequately help others. He’d like this message taught in schools and says we’re never too young or old to begin giving ourselves permission to be selfish. “You have to give yourself permission to consider yourself,” he says. “We have to be accountable for ourselves in life, whether we’re 10 or 90. “I think these principles should be taught at a much younger age. The thing is, we’re not really given permission in life to think about ourselves; it’s taboo to be selfish. The way we’re structured in society, there’s a fear that if we give kids permission to think about themselves, they won’t grow up and act the way we want them to. It’s an

irrational fear. By giving people the power to make choices, the world becomes a much better functioning place, with people living on purpose.” Mr Terry now lives in Los Angeles but loves returning to Australia to visit family and friends in Sydney and says when he visits the Sunshine Coast to address the Shine Business Women Conference as a keynote speaker, people can expect laughter, deep thought and tears. “People will leave very motivated to consider themselves on a personal level and professionally, as well. We’ll talk about the power of choice, connection, living on purpose and this idea of helping yourself in order to be able to help other people.” While he still has 28 things left to tick off his list, Mr Terry says the list has become less important to him as he’s realised his true purpose. However, he’ll still continue to tick them off and has some advice for those wishing to start their own 100 things list. “Step one is give yourself permission to consider yourself. Step two is to dream big or dream small – make up your list with goals that are really big or really small. Step three is picking one of the items you’ve written down and pulling the trigger on it and going for it and seeing what that journey is like. “For me, when I started my list everything was awkward and I was anxious. It seemed like such a big mountain to climb, but by not worrying about it for one occasion, I found I had underestimated myself and I was capable of doing so much more than I had ever thought possible.”

Sebastian Terry is the keynote speaker at the Shine Business Women Conference on Saturday June 2 at the Novotel Twin Waters, proudly supported by My Weekly Preview.

INSPIRING A NEW GENERATION He’s an elite sportsman who has represented his state and his country, but now Billy Slater is on a new quest – to help the nation’s kids get active and have fun. The NRL star spoke exclusively to My Weekly Preview on his recent trip to the Sunshine Coast. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.

IMAGE: NICOLA ANNE PHOTOGRAPHY

I

t was on a Sunday in March 2003 that a nervous, young lad from Innisfail walked onto the football field for his debut NRL game. Little did the crowd know that they were witnessing the birth of Australia’s greatest fullback of all time. This kid from a small Queensland country town took no time announcing his arrival to the world of league, scoring a long-range try and launching his career into the NRL’s million-dollar club. Billy Slater scored 19 tries in his first season – the highest try scorer for the Melbourne Storm in 2003. But it was the following year when he gained national and international attention, earning the name Billy the Kid. Mr Slater had made his State of Origin debut and in game two – just two days shy of his 21st birthday – he scored two tries, one which has gone down as perhaps the greatest individual Origin try in the game’s history. The 34-year-old is now the greatest try scorer in league finals history and Storm coach Craig Bellamy has credited him with changing the way fullbacks play the game. All of this from a person who almost bypassed a career in football.

As a keen horseman, Mr Slater left school at the age of 16 and relocated to Sydney where he worked as a trackwork rider for Gai Waterhouse. But the game he had loved as a kid was calling. “What if I had chosen to stay in Innisfail to play for my local club and not followed my dream to Brisbane Norths, where I played

alongside a couple of teenagers named Cameron Smith and Cooper Cronk?” he writes in his recently released autobiography. “What if serious injury had kept me on the sidelines at the start of my career, not near the end? What if I had stayed at the Waterhouse stables in Sydney, not hitched a ride on a banana truck back to

Innisfail and played rugby league again?” Celebrating his 300th game earlier this month, Mr Slater, who was born in Nambour and spent the first few years of his life on the Sunshine Coast, says he is extremely proud to reach the milestone. “I notched up the first 270 pretty quick but the last three years has been a bit slow so that makes it that little bit more special. “My body is feeling good. It’s great to be active. From a team perspective, the season is going okay for us at the moment. “The focus is on ensuring that the right preparation goes into each training session, then we come together with a positive mindset on game day.” On Mother’s Day, Mr Slater swapped his Storm jersey for a different uniform and spent the morning mentoring 200 kids at the Maroochydore Swans Junior Rugby League Club as part of his Billy’s Buddies program. Holding the attention span of children aged between two and six is no easy feat, but he knows only too well the importance of starting sport young. “I was only four years old when I played my first game,’’ he tells My Weekly Preview. “I didn’t really know what I was doing but

Slater remains focussed on the current season. “Footy was always in my blood,’’ he says. “Footy and horses, I should say. Two of my greatest passions. I loved riding and I loved playing footy. “As I got a bit bigger during my teenage years, my dreams of winning a Melbourne Cup were passed by my keenness to get on the footy field. “Strangely, I did tell my grandmother, ‘I’m going to be a famous footy player one day’. “I think I was about seven or eight at the time. The day that it’s not fun anymore is the day that I will start to think about what my next path will look like.”

Billy’s Buddies is a non-contact rugby league program that teaches children basic ball skills, hand-eye co-ordination, gross motor skills, confidence and healthy habits. The Sunshine Coast South franchise was officially launched this month and head coach Locky Price already works alongside 18 centres and schools offering the program in-house. Owner Jodi Price says the sessions are open to both boys and girls aged from two to six. The program has been nominated for two What’s on 4 Kids awards – Best National Toddlers and Preschooler Activity. To find out more visit billysbuddies.com. au/contactus/southsunshinecoast/.

loved being out there and a part of the team. I always played footy whether it was running around the yard or down at the local field. Usually with bare feet, but I loved it. “For me, it wasn’t about scoring a try and it still isn’t; it was and always will be about playing the game that I love, enjoying myself and trying to be at my best every time I play.” Billy’s Buddies was born out of this passion. “My wife Nicole and I have two beautiful, healthy and active kids, Tyla and Jake. We love doing plenty of activities as a family, whether this be cooking together, kicking the footy at our park or simply taking the time to relax in each other’s company. “The idea of Billy’s Buddies seemed like a fantastic way to help young kids… learn about some really basic ball skills. These skills, which involve a non-contact and non-competitive approach led by our experienced coaches are vital for kids’ development. “My love of footy, moving and being active seemed like a natural extension of me wanting to give something back. Partnering with child-care centres, local footy clubs and franchisees provides kids and their families with a safe environment to learn. “The programs are run by trained coaches who are passionate about kids’ activity and health. Kids learn about running, passing, jumping and generally having fun. Our goals are to get kids moving and get them smiling.” From personal to professional goals, Mr

with Billy Slater

What do you like about the Sunshine Coast? We love the Sunshine Coast. Due to my footy schedule, we don’t get up here as much as we’d like to. I’m a fan of the beaches, love a good coffee and I find that the area is pretty laid-back, which suits me. You were born in Nambour? Yes, this is true. Dad was playing for the Maroochydore Swans at the time. I was three-and-a-half when we moved to Innisfail.

Tell us something we don’t know. Ummm, I love my country music. And I do shed a tear in sad movies, which I may have been known to blame on hayfever. As a dad how do you encourage your children to stay active? I believe what we teach our kids when they are young will be ingrained in them for life. I try and lead by example and make being active fun.

IS THIS THE END OF AN ERA FOR WESTFIELD CORPORATION?

W

estfield Corporation security holders will soon have to decide how to handle the largest takeover deal in Australian corporate history, if the proposed offer from Unibail-Rodamco (Unibail) is approved. Westfield’s owners are being offered a combination of cash and shares which, based on the Westfield and Unibail closing prices on May 9, values Westfield at $9.47 per security. The last day of trading in Westfield shares would be May 30, with deal implementation in early June. Unibail may be less well-known to Australian investors, but it is Europe’s largest listed commercial property company, and

over the past 20 years it has developed an enviable track record of business performance. It has also delivered returns that are superior to most real estate companies – a $US1000 (about $1300) investment in Unibail shares in 1998 would now be valued at around $US14,000 (about $18,600). In general, we think Unibail shares are a reasonable alternative to holding Westfield in the property sector. Overall, we see benefits in the deal, and

“Westfield’s owners are being offered a combination of cash and shares” while there are risks we see these as mostly manageable. The benefits are that the combined group would have a portfolio with a market value of $62 billion, plus a $13 billion development pipeline. Westfield holders would also have more exposure to retail mall assets – 102 versus 35. Asset diversity is also boosted with the combined portfolio having 88 per cent of its asset value in shopping centres, but the balance in office and

$

40,990

convention centres rather than only retail. Westfield’s assets are in two other countries – the UK and US – but the combined group’s assets would be spread across 13 countries – primarily France, but also Spain, Germany and the Netherlands. We see Europe as being on a recovery path, like the US, with positive drivers such as historically low interest rates and a falling jobless rate. The risks are that shareholders would also receive shares in Westfield’s OneMarket, a start-up retail technology platform. This early-stage and higher-risk business may not suit everyone, in which case their OneMarket shares could be sold via a sale facility, using the form provided in the offer documentation. The combined group’s gearing would be higher than that of Westfield at around 42 per cent versus 31 per cent, although a lower average cost of debt means interest cover remains stable at about six times. Only partial capital gains tax rollover is being provided. The broader risks include the impact of Brexit and the negative correlation of REITs to bond yields.

Sunshine Coast company Hall Contracting has been tasked with delivering one of the world’s most remote civil and marine construction projects. The organisation has been hired by the Government of Tokelau to upgrade reef passages and construct four new wharves in Tokelau. The works will start this month and conclude in November 2019. Hall Contracting CEO Cameron Hall says one of the company’s tugs and a 52-foot barge had set sail from Brisbane recently, with the journey to Tokelau’s Atufu atoll expected to take around four weeks. “Tokelau is isolated and only accessible by sea, with its nearest neighbour, Samoa, approximately 500 kilometres away,” Mr Hall says. “With this in mind, proficiency in planning and logistics has been imperative, as any overlooked parts or pieces of equipment will spend weeks in transit and cannot be flown onto the various atolls.”

MY TIME

ALMOST AWESOME 30 YEARS ON Kevin ‘Bloody’ Wilson is still a potty-mouthed Aussie larrikin who makes audiences laugh like crazy. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

O

ne of Australia’s best-loved larrikins is coming to the Sunshine Coast to dish out his signature politically incorrect songs as part of the Almost Awesome tour. And Kevin ‘Bloody’ Wilson says he cannot wait to hit the region, with The Shed at Aussie World his all-time favourite venue. It’s a big claim to fame for the Coast, with the 71-year-old releasing 21 albums since 1984 and touring extensively around the world with his beloved wife Betty Bryant by his side. “I fell in love with The Shed because it’s everything Australian – you wouldn’t find anything like that anywhere else in the world. I’m just a choirmaster in places like that, I get up and tell them what song we’re singing and away we go, everyone is there to have a bloody good time,” Mr Wilson tells My Weekly Preview. “Nobody enjoys this leg of the tour more than (my wife and I) do. It’s been three years since we’ve been up there, it takes us time to do the circuit. The tour we are on at the moment takes us around the world, we’ve just got back from New Zealand and we will be off to South Africa, Canada, the UK and we will finish this tour in Dublin in 2020. We are so lucky because we get to travel and see the world together.” Mr Wilson says his wife has long been his trusty tour manager since he began carving a name for himself in the entertainment industry. Now nudging four million album sales without much mainstream support, largely due to the content of songs like D.I.L.L.I.G.A.F, Living Next Door to Alan, Dick’taphone and I Knew the Bride (When She Used to be a Mole), Mr Wilson originally recorded songs on cassette tape for his mates about his experiences working in the mines in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. In the early 1980s, he put together a tape called Your Average Australian Yobbo and started selling it, battling with authorities after getting arrested for

performing his politically incorrect songs in public at the time. Luckily, times have changed and Mr Wilson has a nomination for Australian of the Year (2010) under his belt and is recognised as one of the country’s most prolific performers, totally and unabashedly embodying the spirit of Australian humour. “I never paid any attention to being PC, I decided to leapfrog political correctness as it’s a crock of s**t basically. If it’s political, there’s a pretty good chance it’s not f****ng correct,” Mr Wilson quips. “I’ve had DILLIGAF tattooed on my wrist for years and the reason for that is that you should never let other people dictate what you do. “When you lose a sense, like sight, your sense of hearing and sense of touch become way more exaggerated. “The same thing happens when you lose your sense of humour – your sense of self-importance becomes exaggerated and you begin to dictate to others what is funny and what is not.” Kevin ‘Bloody’ Wilson is at The Shed on June 9 at 8pm. Tickets are available at aussieworld.com.au.

FOR CHARITY

Horizon Festival Director

I

’m excited to welcome you to Horizon Festival 2018, the Sunshine Coast’s very own festival of arts, culture and creativity. Each fortnight over the next couple of months I will be pulling back the curtain to reveal stories about some of the amazing artists, producers and collaborators that deliver the diverse projects and events that are the Horizon Festival. The festival team and local artists have been working hard for many months now to develop the 2018 program (and we’re already working on 2019!), and I can’t wait to reveal all when we release the full event listing in

early July. But for those who can’t wait that long, we are going to provide a sneak peek in early June to give you a taste of what’s to come, so stay tuned. If you will be out and about across the Coast over the coming days, keep your eye out for our amazing Art Bus (thanks to our partners GoTransit and the Cultural Heritage Levy for making this art on wheels a reality). Adorned with an incredible artwork, Sunrise: Ba’boon bi’ra, by local Kabi Kabi artist Bianca Beetson, the Art Bus is our special way of taking art to the streets and hopefully brightening the day of all who see it and take a ride on it. I encourage you to check out Horizon on Facebook and watch our behind-the-scenes video of the Art Bus coming to life. Until next time.

MY OPINION

HOW TO RUIN A RELATIONSHIP

FIND YOUR OWN TRUE NORTH

Suzanne Loubris says insisting your partner do things your way all the time is a recipe for relationship disaster.

Rebecca Grisman says we all have an inner compass that points us towards true happiness, but we need stillness to know where it’s guiding us.

E

nter into a relationship with someone who is completely different to you. They are left-brain (logical) and you are right-brain (creative), or maybe you are outgoing and chatty and they are quiet, reserved homebodies. Dominant personality types like to hang out with passive people and vice versa. However, there is a piece of brain hardware that is designed to destroy this lovely bonding of difference. It happens after a while, when the shine has worn off and we know everything about them, what they will say and when they will say it. Now we just want to suffocate them when they’re sleeping. We ask ourselves, why are they not as amazing and awesome as I am? I don’t understand why they insist on doing things to annoy me. For the life of me, I don’t get why this person insists on asking me questions when we are watching a movie. It’s bad enough that they snore, fart, burp or have smelly feet, but how many times do I have to ask them to fix that door for me? Why do they insist on packing the dishwasher in that ridiculous fashion? They really should do things the same way that my mother taught me. After all, my mother was the genius of

householders and every method she used for cleaning, organising and running a household has got to be the best and only way. What I notice is that women have a million rules about how to run a house that men invariably haven’t been taught. The magic and mystery of successful household maintenance is passed down from one female to another. Sometimes, the guys learn snippets of this wisdom, but women know exactly how to wipe down a bench or hang out washing or make a bed. Woe betide the innocent man who doesn’t get that right. They are frowned upon and ridiculed. However, on the flip side, try to help a man doing ‘manly’ tasks. There seems to be an expectation that women should know how to fix and build stuff. How do we bridge these divides when the shiny relationship starts to tarnish? Do we learn to expect less, or different? Do we communicate and see if we can influence our lovely person to follow our protocols? Maybe we just need to let go and forget about ‘the right way to do things’, go on a journey of discovery and find out how other people do things. We might discover a new way of operating in the world. We might find our lives can be less stressful.

“Women have a million rules about how to run a house…”

Suzanne Loubris is a relationships and organisational psychologist. You’ll find her at Leah Dique & Associates in Nambour, or visit behaviourthatworks.com.

O

ne of my favourite writers, a psychologist named Martha Beck, has a theory that we all have an inner compass. It guides our souls towards whatever in life we really want in order to be happy. So we feel a pull or an inner urge to do something that matters to us, like taking up hang gliding or changing our jobs or relocating to Ubud, and that’s your inner compass pointing you in the right direction, for you. The thing is though, most of us are also taught or told to weigh up our gut instincts with rational facts, or to seek the advice of others who will give advice based on their own judgement or experience. This is often when we make the decision that the thing we want to do is too risky or different and so we wait another five years, or never do it at all. That does not stop the compass though and if it is a genuine desire you have, the itch remains there in the back of your mind. I just met a woman in her seventies, who took up her life’s calling, as she describes it, 10 years ago. She moved from the city and away from her relatives to buy an organic hobby farm and she says her health has never been better now that she spends her days outside, actively gardening. She always wanted to do this. Looking back, she sees that she took several steps towards this ultimate destination over the years, but she chose to delay her greenchange until her family was grown.

Then, she says, she simply decided and sold her house the next day. That’s pretty gutsy I think. Now her grown up kids are also moving to be near her, funnily, so maybe her calling has led them all north, literally. In my own case, I have begun a second business because I have an allergy to wine. I did a lot of research and then began to write about wine, which has led to many exciting overseas travels and working with growers, makers and experts in biodynamics, blending, vineyard planting and even glass

“My inner compass has led me north as far as Helsinki…” blowing. I never imagined I’d be paid to drink wine, almost a decade after I was told I could not drink it. My inner compass has led me north as far as Helsinki for a champagne conference. There is so much focus today on technology and having an app or a public opinion poll for everything we do, think and share, I know I often feel exhausted by the sheer amount of information to process in a day. I understand the pull many people feel to hike in the forest or swim out in the ocean and just find some quiet space. Stillness is necessary to check your compass too. I hope that you are following yours.

No Salesmen! No Hype!

Blake Lively’s top five beauty secrets

One contact from concept to completion, too easy!!

Blake Lively looked incredible, as always, at the Met Gala and the premiere of Deadpool 2 supporting hubby Ryan Reynolds recently. The actress has been quoted as saying: • She likes perfumes that are both feminine and masculine and her favourite is Gucci Première. • To keep her long hair looking great, she uses coconut oil on the ends before shampooing. • She creates beachy waves by washing her hair, putting it up in a ballet bun to let it dry naturally, then shaking it loose. • She has perfected the art of the no-makeup look by keeping her skin dewy and natural, using a neutral eye palette with mascara, and a glossy nude or pink lip. • She likes to use turquoise eyeliner on the inner rim of her eyes to make them stand out.

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 20)

TAURUS (Apr 21-May 21)

GEMINI (May 22-Jun 21)

CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 23)

This week’s stars are all about communication and confidence. Tuesday’s full moon motivates you to dream big dreams for the future and then act on them. Friday’s celestial cocktail encourages you to network with inspiring and influential people.

Relationships are in the spotlight this week. Attached bulls – things could get hot and heavy on Tuesday night, when the full moon invigorates your intimacy zone. Singles – you’re in a hurry to find your soul mate, but you’ll have to be patient.

Tuesday night’s full moon urges you to focus on a rickety relationship. Don’t worry if you’re going over old ground – that’s exactly what’s needed. With your ruler Mercury moving into your sign, are you being the real you?

The full moon encourages you to get physical as you run, cycle, swim or play sport. The extra endorphins will give you a much-needed energy boost. With Venus visiting your sign (and aspecting lucky Jupiter), it’s your week to sparkle and shine!

LEO (Jul 24-Aug 23)

VIRGO (Aug 24-Sep 23)

LIBRA (Sep 24-Oct 23)

SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22)

It’s a wonderful week to put plans in place to follow your true destiny. The more adventurous the path is, the better. You’re also in the mood to socialise up a storm and pamper yourself, as you party like a pro or just enjoy life’s little luxuries.

Mercury (your patron planet) is now moving through your career zone, until June 12. If you want to get ahead, strive to work smarter, not just harder. And, if you choose to take on a challenge, you’ll find the benefits will far outweigh the difficulties.

The full moon highlights your kind and charitable nature, so it’s a terrific time to get involved in formal volunteer work (especially within your local community) or just lend a hand to a friend, relative or neighbour who’s in need.

Lady Luck is waiting in the wings via extra business, an exciting idea, an auspicious offer or a fabulous foreign connection, so use your substantial Scorpio networking skills to drum up support and don’t be afraid to ask others for help when it’s required.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec 21)

CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20)

AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 19)

PISCES (Feb 20-Mar 20)

It’s a big week for boisterous Sagittarians! Tuesday night’s fiery full moon (in your sign) promises a positive, passionate and actionpacked week. Your motivation and energy levels are set on high … and so is your hot-headed impatience.

On Tuesday night, lift your nose from the daily routine grindstone and take a look within. Indulge in some quiet contemplation, as the full moon stimulates your spirituality zone and you receive important guidance from your inner self.

With independent Mars charging through your sign and the full moon firing up your bohemian zone, it’s time to do your own thing, in your own highly individual way. Don’t play it too safe; forge your own unique path and follow your heart-felt dreams.

Tuesday’s full moon fires up your career zone, so some fish will feel frustrated with too much (or too little) work. Be careful what you wish for – ambitious aspirations are fine, but you also need to keep your feet on the ground and your goals realistic.

BEST OF THE BUILDERS Two local building companies have represented the Sunshine Coast at the HIA’s national awards. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

wo Sunshine Coast builders have competed against the best in the industry at the HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards. Planet Homes’ Jason Bowker was a finalist in the Display Home category, while Dayne Lawrie Constructions was a finalist in the Spec Home of the Year award. While, the national awards have been held on Hamilton Island for the past couple of years, the awards ceremony was this year held in Singapore – the architecture capital of the world. Dayne Lawrie and fiancée Nadia Thompson were thrilled to have progressed to the national level after entering the local awards for the first time. They took out the Spec Home category at the state level. Ms Thompson says they thrive on pushing the boundaries and “challenging people’s thoughts of what’s possible” when it comes to home design and they are very focused on attention to detail at every level of planning and construction. Their spec home at 185 Balgownie Drive, Peregian Springs, which has since been sold, is a mid-century-style house with a natural material palette of timber and concrete. Taking five months to build, the home boasts many notable features, from the

Dayne Lawrie Constructions’ award-winning home internal timber feature wall with hidden doors, large rosewood entrance door, all internal doors to ceilings, ceiling-mounted robe doors, timber ceilings, internal day bed and raked glass presented at the front of the house, plus much more. The striking central timber feature wall encases a hidden door, and concealed hinges create the perfect appearance of clean lines and invisibility. The flashing that appears on the external facade was folded to add diversity to the house and to conceal the thickness of the beam that sits behind.

While the 2017 national winners were announced on May 12, entries for the 2018 Sunshine Coast/Wide Bay Housing Awards are already open. The awards celebrate a local residential construction industry that continues to deliver new levels of quality, excellence and innovation in the design and construction of homes, renovations, and kitchen and bathroom projects. One of the strengths of the local awards is that it enables industry participants, including builders, developers, designers and contractors, to compete against their peers

across a range of building categories from custom-built homes to renovations and everything in between. HIA regional manager Stuart Collins says there are new categories and revised sub-categories this year to reflect trends in housing. These include renovated kitchen, renovated bathroom, apartments up to four storeys, apartments over four storeys and a steel frame award. The People’s Choice award, supported by My Weekly Preview, will again be a feature of the program and will allow voting across all custom-built entries. Mr Collins says there has been an increasing number of entries each year and builders and designers have until the end of July to enter the 2018 awards. “The Sunshine Coast has always been well represented at the Australian Housing Awards and it’s not unusual to see Sunshine Coast builders and designers winning major awards at the higher level,” he says. “A lot of the stuff we do here is innovative and cutting edge. Each year, entrants push new boundaries and I am looking forward to seeing this year’s crop.”

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Okey dokey, now the WSL moves to Keramas – Bali. Julian is still leading the points but will be up against it with the Brazilians who seem to be on fire. Well at least Teledo is on fire… yikes! This weekend looks like the devil winds are returning so enjoy what you can. Maybe hit it super early. Boy, has anyone seen the bat colony in Moffat Beach industrial on dusk? Holy moly, it is amazing. So many bats! Drive down there around 5.30pm and be prepared to be blown away. Have a great weekend!
