FROM THE EDITOR
y son loves the ocean and during the warmer months we spend as many weekends at the beach as possible. Growing up on the Sunshine Coast grants a special type of childhood. A childhood of sunny days and ocean swims, of laughter and happy memories. However, it can also open our children up to risks if they don’t understand the importance of keeping safe around the water. He may be only four but our son knows the importance of swim safety; he’s heard it enough times – swim between the flags, raise your hand and don’t panic if you are caught in a rip, run for help if you witness another person in trouble. He was only four months old when he began swimming lessons and we will continue educating him on this path for as long as we can. These days he watches the young nippers at our local beach with intense interest and we are waiting for the day he asks to join – something we would happily support. Not only does the surf lifesaving movement teach children safety skills, but it also teaches them about teamwork and the importance of community involvement. This year marks 50 years since the Queensland Surf Nippers Association began, and to mark the occasion we are celebrating our nippers. You can read the story on page 10. Until next week, take care.
We’ve got two Father’s Day book packs up for grabs thanks to publishers Penguin Random House. Both packs include three books, including Tim Winton’s Breath. For more on the titles, visit penguinrandomhouse.com.au.

MODERN FAMILY Where do you live? We live on a 22-acre piece of lush countryside in Maleny. First job? My first job was at Hungry Jacks. I was so desperate to earn my own money so I got the job right on the day I turned 14 and nine months. What are you currently working on? Currently working on a range of art prints so that I can work from home and still be available for my daughter who starts school in January. Your family includes? Two dads and a daughter. Plus seven chickens, a cat, and we just bought three miniature Galloway cows. First car? My first car was a VH Holden Commodore that sounded like a V8, but really, I just had a hole in my exhaust that I couldn’t afford to fix! Favourite book? I’m not really a reader these days with having a young child, but I am currently reading her a range of cool bedtime stories – we love to mix it up.
What are you reading now? Raising Girls.
Favourite song and why? Gosh, I have so many! I do love Life is a Highway by Tom Cochrane as it was a song that was on my CD player when I first went solo travelling around the world.
Best advice you’ve been given? All good things come to those who wait. My mum often says everything always works out in the end, somehow it does eventually.
This 36-year-old stay-at-home dad is part of the real-life modern family and is raising his daughter with partner Holt. In addition to spending time with his loved ones, Mr Leysham has an addiction to travel and a flair for design and style. He shares the beautiful snapshots of his family’s life with the 17,500 followers on his Champagne Dad Style Instagram account and his blog site.

Ian Griffiths, Director
What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? Maleny. I just love living here. It’s beautiful, green and has a friendly and welcoming community. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? That drive to Brisbane and back. You just never know how long it will take or what the holdup is going to be next.
Barb Koper, Conveyancing Manager
Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? Yes, it was a day I was struggling on accepting I was gay and felt scared, exhausted and at the end of the road. Luckily, my best friend called in that moment and asked me to come over. I did, and let it all out that I was gay. From that moment, I felt secure enough to tell my family and friends and never looked back. Your greatest regret? Not asking for help in difficult situations when I needed it.
“Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Don’t care what anybody else thinks. Just be you”
If your life was a book, what would be the title? What on Earth is he up to now?
Best day in your life and why? Easy – the day my daughter Olivia was born. I felt I had everything I had ever wanted in life right there in my arms.
WILLS ESTATES PROPERTY RETIREMENT VILLAGES
For more than 40 years, Ian Griffiths and the team at Griffiths Lawyers have provided expertise, results and old fashioned personal service to thousands of individuals, families and businesses across the Sunshine Coast and beyond.
What achievement are you most proud of? Being a stay-at-home dad for the past four years to my daughter. It’s been hard and lonely at times, but she’s almost off to school and I could not be prouder of giving her that time, just like my parents gave us.
You are happiest when? I’m always happiest when I’m with my family, just pottering around the home. Also when someone asks, ‘do you want another glass of champagne?’. Yes, the answer is always yes.
How do you deal with your frustrations? Running! I love to exercise, but running is how I relax and free my mind. If you could tell your 18-year-old self-anything, what would it be? Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Don’t care what anybody else thinks. Just be you. If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? I would buy my parents a house so that they could retire and see who else I could help after paying off our mortgage. What does Father’s Day mean to you? Father’s Day is a day to show the special superhero dads in our lives just how much they means to us. It’s also a great time to reflect and be proud of how bloody hard being a dad is.

BY THE NUMBERS
Australian lifesavers are certainly kept busy. They conduct 451 preventative actions every hour.
DO YOU REMEMBER??
OUR PLACE The Sunshine Coast has a long history with surf lifesaving. The region’s oldest club, Maroochy, celebrates its 102nd birthday this year. During World War II, the presence of lifesavers on our beaches declined as men and women served the country. Today, there are 12 lifesaving clubs on the Coast.

ON YOUR MARKS
It’s been 50 years since the state’s first nippers ran out onto the beach, and in that time many thousands of Queenslanders have proudly joined and graduated from the nipper program. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
he Sunshine Coast nippers of 1968 counted chariot races and pillow fights among their competitive sports. But as around 4000 nippers prepare to don the iconic pink rashies from September 1 to take on the 50th anniversary season across the region, there is not a pillow in sight. There will be celebrations aplenty as Surf Life Saving Queensland (SLSQ) marks five decades since the formation of the Queensland Surf Nippers Association (QSNA). The milestone season celebrations began last weekend, with the SLSQ Awards of Excellence Gala Ball, and will culminate in March next year, when the Queensland Youth Surf Life Saving Championships are held at Burleigh on the Gold Coast, where it all began with the first state titles in 1969.
SLSQ member services manager Des Kerr says the nipper program has evolved over time. The sole focus initially was on making young children surf safe. “While that remains the core focus of the program today, nippers are also taught about marine stinger protection, sun safety, and surf sports coaching in addition to lifesaving skills,” Mr Kerr says. “Gear and equipment have also changed… water safety has also improved, with inflatable rescue boats and qualified adults in the water at all times for supervision.” Mr Kerr says the 400 Sunshine Coast active nippers in 1968 were “all about catching up with mates, having some fun, and being sunburnt every Monday back at school”. “Nippers were taught to challenge the waves and the surf conditions, and chariot races and pillow fights were
amongst the first surf sports,” he adds. “Nippers is still about family, friends and fun, but today, the nippers are taught skills including basic first aid and resuscitation, how to spot a rip, identifying different types of waves, wading and dolphin diving through the water, and learning hand signals to communicate back to shore. “Competitive events include beach flags and sprints, board races and surf swims. “Nippers and surf lifesaving has become a way of life for many families based on the Sunshine Coast. Surf clubs are communities in their own right, with all members becoming actively involved to give back to the greater coastal community.” While children aged from as young as five can sign up for nippers and remain junior lifesavers until the age of 13, Mr Kerr says it is just the beginning of a potentially life-long association with the lifesaving community.
“There’s no other sport where kids can learn to save a life while staying fit, active and healthy, while forming solid friendships that will last a lifetime,” he says. “Young or old, there’s a role and a niche for everyone at surf clubs. From turning snags on the barbie or manning the uniform shop and canteen, to being a club administrator or coaching an age group, there really is something for everyone.” There are now more than 10,000 nippers in Queensland, a far cry from the approximate 1100 that signed on for the inaugural QSNA season 50 years ago. The movement has played a large role in hundreds of thousands of lives in that time, and My Weekly Preview has spoken to some familiar faces about their nipper memories.

Clint Robinson cemented his place in history when he became Australia’s first canoe/kayak Olympic gold medallist after taking out the K1 1000-metre in Barcelona in 1992. The Maroochydore Surf Life Saving Club life member says the seeds for his success were planted when his father signed him up to the club as a nipper at the age of seven. “I saw the Moscow Olympics when I was eight years old and a Sunshine Coast man named Grant Kenny was competing,” he says. “While Ironman racing to me was always a pretty exciting thing to watch, it never had the allure for me that being an Olympian did. “Ironman is an Australian-dominated sport, but in the Olympics, over 100 nations of great athletes from around the world converge, and canoeing always was my greatest love. The competitiveness of it is extreme and the surf lifesaving and sprint ski racing was a fantastic backdrop towards the European summer campaign that I got involved in.” Mr Robinson competed in the Uncle Toby’s Super Series (professional Ironman circuit) from 1989 to 1995, dominating both the board and ski legs of the race. When his gold-medal tally reached 30, Mr Robinson was awarded an OAM for having the finest national championship record of any surf lifesaver. He also secured a gold, silver and bronze medal over five Olympic campaigns from 1992 to 2008. Not surprisingly, Mr Robinson says he always found the competitive side of nippers “a lot of fun”. “I was a young footballer as well, rugby league, and we’d go away with a small team to states or regionals, but with lifesaving, the whole club would go out so a great group of friends and family would go away with you,” he says. “Being such a family-built organisation where volunteers basically run the sport is great and the reality is, without the families there, the sport would not have the lifesavers of the future.” Through Clint Robinson Performance and Excellence, which he founded five years ago, Mr Robinson has worked with athletes of all ages around the country and is in the final stages of preparing a Coast-based nipper training group. “I want to get back to the grassroots to teach things the right way so the up-and-coming kids will have the right skills to take them on whatever journey the want to go on,” he says.
Although he has five Coolangatta Gold wins under his belt and was the 2015 Nutri-Grain Ironman Series winner, Alastair ‘Ali’ Day admits he was scared of the big swell when he was a nipper at the age of eight. But the 28-year-old, who spent his early elite athlete years on the Sunshine Coast from 2012 to 2015 before moving to Burleigh Heads, says he wouldn’t be where he is today if his parents hadn’t signed him up for nippers. “It was the best decision my mum and dad ever made for me,” he says. “It has taught me to be the person I am today. The principles, disciplines and the values I got out of looking after people and caring for people, volunteering, doing patrols, fundraising, the friendships I got out of it, the racing, the confidence it’s given me, it literally has shaped my whole life.” Mr Day says he was a “late bloomer” in the sport, having to overcome nerves and a fear of racing when he was younger and not having his “lightbulb moment” until he was 15. “One of the big lessons I had to learn was to start trusting myself and my capabilities and relax in those situations. Then, when I decided I wanted to be a professional Ironman, I knew that I had it in me to do it and that drove me to overcome those sorts of fears. I put it down to having a great support network in my family and coaches over the years as well,” he says. While pre-season training for the Coolangatta Gold in October and running his gym ACTV Strength Co takes up a lot of his time, Mr Day makes time to connect with young nippers to inspire them on their journey. “It’s so important, when I was their age, people would come to your school or surf club and it was such a big deal and I guess now that I’ve been given the opportunity and the platform to be able to go out and do that, I take it quite seriously,” he says. “It’s really important for kids to have mentors and heroes and people to look up to and it’s about giving back. It might be a comment or a phone call or just saying hello to a kid that might make their day and might be the lightbulb moment for them as well.”
Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club nipper Mia Warner is preparing for her fourth nippers season and is chomping at the bit to rack up enough placings in local carnivals to get into her first state-level competition. The 10-year-old loves competitive swimming and board races and says she has become much more confident in the water than she was when mum Lorelle Warner signed her up in the under-eights. “I was kind of unsure at first, but once I got into it, it was really fun,” Mia says. Now in the under-11s, the first year of state-level competition, Mia says she is aiming for a top eight placement to get into the Queensland titles. “It’s great to compete against each other on a normal Sunday, but when we are in a carnival team, Dicky Beach can all work together and focus on our teamwork,” she says. Mia’s little sister Lexi has now graduated from the ‘Green Caps’, a beginner class for the under-sevens, and she will don the same green, white and yellow Dicky Beach cap as Mia this season. The Moffat Beach family is all looking forward to spending more time at the beach, with dad Michael preparing to complete his bronze medallion. Mrs Warner, who works in administration for Surf Life Saving, says it’s something she would consider in the future as well. “It wasn’t really until we joined the club that I saw first-hand the dedication of so many people and the time they put into it and how committed they are to developing these kids… I don’t know another organisation quite like it.”
FAST FACTS • There were 3966 active nippers on the Sunshine Coast in the 2017/18 season and 10,797 in Queensland. • There were an estimated 400 active Coast nippers in the 1968/69 season and an estimated 1100 in Queensland. • In the 2017/18 season, more than 21 million beachgoers enjoyed the beaches across the state. • Lifesavers and professional lifeguards performed 701,973 preventative actions and administered 35,257 first aid treatments in 2016/17.

MERCEDES-BENZ SUNSHINE COAST PROMOTION
A New Era for Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast A dynamic new team is taking things to the next level. A stellar new team has joined Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast and dealer principals Aaron Crick and Cameron O’Hara say it marks a turning point in the company’s 20-year history. With new talent on board, customer expectations won’t simply be met – but exceeded. “We’ve got more experience here than we’ve ever had before,” Aaron says. “It’s actually more than most people would ever be fortunate enough to have in any business.” Sales manager Andrew Laing and service manager Adam Beilken are two of the team members who joined the company this year and wasted no time kicking some major goals. “Since Andrew started in January, he’s had his sales team sitting at number one in metropolitan Australia for customer satisfaction,” Aaron 12 My Weekly Preview | August 31, 2018
says. “He genuinely cares about his customers and gets a buzz out of seeing people drive out of here happy and that’s something you can’t fake.” Mercedes-Benz began life on the Sunshine Coast two decades ago with two dealerships – one in Currimundi and one in Noosa. In 2008, the gleaming glass-fronted showroom was built on Maroochy Boulevard and the two dealerships were centralised into the one location. Most Sunshine Coast residents know the name Crick. Aaron’s father is Garry Crick of the Auto Group, one of our local business success stories, so cars run in the blood. “I’ve grown up here most of my life on a property out the back of Nambour. Dad started out as a mechanic and worked very hard to get where he is today. I’m a carpenter
by trade, but I loved this job so much I had to come back. It’s no secret I’m passionate about all that the brand Mercedes-Benz represents, the best or nothing. “I enjoy the people. It was predominantly the cars I enjoyed when I started out, but I actually enjoy the people more now.” Aaron co-owns the business with fellow dealer principal Cameron O’Hara, and says he’s proud of his dynamic team, which combines new talent with company stalwarts like Gavin Grant, who has been the vans sales executive of the year for all rural dealers for the last three years running. “Now, we want to be the go-to place for anyone who wants to get into a premium vehicle. We want to get the word out there to people that anyone
shopping here will receive a superb customer experience. “It’s very hands-on. You will meet the sales manager, the dealer principal – everyone’s on the floor, everyone’s there and involved here at the Mercedes-Benz dealership on Maroochy Boulevard.”

Centre: Sales Manager Andrew Laing with his team.
Centre: Service Manager Adam Beilken with his team.
Andrew Laing was the sales manager for Mecedez-Benz in Brisbane for more than eight years before joining Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast in January, and says he and his family are loving the new coastal lifestyle. “I like the size of this dealership here because I can be involved with the customers,” he says. “It’s more intimate here. I get the opportunity to actually talk to each customer. The reason I’m in this industry is because it’s the people business.” Andrew is passionate about the Mercedes-Benz brand because it sets a benchmark in terms of quality: “They write
songs about it. It’s something that flows through my veins.” The secret to his success, he says, is to give people the service they deserve and never take them for granted. “Local business is very important to us and we want to make sure the people of the Sunshine Coast don’t have to pay a premium to buy locally,” he says. “Since I started, we’ve become number one in the country in a metropolitan area for new and used cars for customer service. The way we’re doing it is just by being ourselves – we’re like a big family here.”
Service manager Adam Beilken joined Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast four months ago and immediately set about upgrading the service department. “I inherited a service department that had a lot of change of management so I’ve implemented some processes to create more stability,” he says. “A lot of new systems are now in place. The mechanics go into training, there are incentives programs and out the front, we’re more concerned with customers and their needs. “It’s like a blank canvas for me,” he
Joining forces for a good cause Local business identities Michelle Evans and Debbie Battaglini-Clarke share a passion to create a bigger, better Sunshine Coast. Both are former SCBWN Award Winners, they are also long-time friends and colleagues. In July, Michelle joined Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast as business development and marketing manager and Debbie joined SunnyKids as charity manager. With Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast a supporting partner of the charity, some great events are planned. “We share the same value drivers – People, purpose, collaboration,” says Michelle. “In being good role models for our kids and giving back to causes, we’re showing our kids they can make a difference,” Debbie says.
says. “A lot of things were untapped and had never been done before. I’ve been able to come in and make an immediate impact on the business. For example, we’ve put in a driver to pick up customer’s cars up to Noosa and down to Caloundra.” This move has proven popular. “We’ve gone from doing 22 to almost 40 cars a day over the last three months, so we’ve almost doubled,” he says. “There was fairly high demand here for the service. They were booked out for weeks on end, but now we’re just getting more efficient with what we do.”
First class in customer service, that’s what the team at Sunshine Coast Mercedes-Benz prides themselves on. Free loan car and complimentary pick up and delivery on scheduled services and repairs.*

UNSTOPPABLE SUNSHINE COAST LIGHTNING
16 My Weekly Preview | August 31, 2018
LAW STUDENT IS FINALIST FOR NATIONAL
The Sunshine Coast Lightning are the perfect inspiration for a sports-themed Hollywood blockbuster, with the elite netballers proving lightning can strike twice and becoming one of the most successful sporting teams of all time in Australia in the process. The Lightning joined the national netball scene for the inaugural Suncorp Super Netball competition in 2017, and they won their second consecutive netball premiership in Sunday’s grand final showdown against West Coast Fever, making them the only team in the competition’s history to hold the premiership. The leading team changed eight times during the nail-biting game. Tipped as the underdogs, Lightning secured a 62 to 59 win at Perth Arena in front of a record crowd of 13,722 people. Lightning midcourter Maddy McAuliffe says the team’s belief in their ability to go back-to-back had been strong from the outset. “A lot of people wrote us off after some narrow losses at the beginning of the season, but we always knew we were capable of making finals and potentially going all the way,” Ms McAuliffe says. Goal shooter Caitlin Bassett was named Most Valuable Player and the team returned home to a rockstar reception on Wednesday, with celebrations set to continue.
The ever-popular Bloomhill Race Day returns on September 1 and will again be a day filled with fun, racing, food, champagne, auctions, winners and, most importantly, raising funds for the Sunshine Coast charity which supports people of all ages to live well with cancer. A host of prizes will be up for grabs including jewellery, accommodation packages, experiences and more. Money boards and auctions will be part of the day. The $110 ticket price includes a glass of champagne on arrival, plus a three-course plated lunch and entry to the Champagne Garden. All proceeds go towards Bloomhill Cancer Care. Tickets are available at bloomhill.com.au/online-shop.
University of the Sunshine Coast student Michael Jefferies has been named as a Law Student of the Year finalist for the second year running. The 22-year-old Buderim resident says he is “chuffed” to be a national finalist and believes his application is much stronger this year. The Law Student of the Year winner is determined on academic results, extracurricular involvement and leadership in the community, as well as a passion for law and justice. The awards are run by Lawyers Weekly magazine, with editor Emma Ryan describing the annual presentation night on August 31 as the pinnacle event for the nation’s legal profession.
Jessica Simpson from Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) has again been recognised for her passion and dedication to coastal safety – she was named 18-25 Young Lifesaver of the Year at Surf Life Saving Queensland’s (SLSQ) Awards of Excellence at a Gala Ball. The accolade adds to her previous success of winning Summer Surf Girl earlier this year and raising almost $100,000 for her club, while continuing in the role of club captain for the fourth consecutive year. A total of 19 awards were given to Sunshine Coast lifesavers on the night, including a swag of surf sports awards.

CALOUNDRA ARE RUGBY UNION PREMIERS Caloundra have claimed their first A-grade premiership in the Sunshine Coast Rugby Union competition with a dominant display against Noosa on the weekend, beating them 40 to 10. In front of more than 3200 spectators, Caloundra produced a sophisticated performance with a score of 21 to three at half time and only conceded a try in the last five minutes of the game. Caloundra fell to Noosa in the past two grand finals but finished this year’s standard season as minor premiers before earning their maiden premiership. The club has waited 36 years, since its inception in 1982, to host their first grand final and claim their first title. myweeklypreview.com.au

GETTING PERSONAL He’s a prodigious writer with a legion of fans around the globe, but Australian author Michael Robotham tells My Weekly Preview that even now he doubts his abilities. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
IMAGE: TONY MOTT
ichael Robotham says his greatest driving force is fear of failure. It’s a disarming revelation coming from one of Australia’s most successful writers. “I still sign every book to my agent, ‘we fooled them again’,” he says. ‘There’s that American thing, if you talk the talk, you’ll walk the walk. I was always completely different to that. If someone says, ‘are you driven by the desire to succeed or fear of failure?’, it’s the fear of failure. His latest book, The Other Wife, hit number one on the Australian bestsellers list recently and is proving his most successful book to date. The ninth and final in his psychological thriller series, it features his much-loved character Joe O’Loughlin, a clinical psychologist with a strong mind and crumbling body and Mr Robotham’s most autobiographical character. “I’ve been number one in Germany and the Netherlands, but this is my first ever Australian number one fiction title,” he says. “It’s a summit you hope to scale one day, but I didn’t think I’d ever quite get there. I think this book is the tipping point. Each book I’ve written has been more successful than the last.” Having succeeded at every stage of his career – first as a journalist, then as a ghostwriter and now as a bestselling crime writer – he still feels like a fraud. “Every time I start writing a book, I feel like I have to learn how to do it again.” But the figures don’t lie – he’s sold six million books and had them translated into 23 languages. So where does the selfdoubt come from? “My father was probably the most important figure in my life – the person I most wanted to impress or win favour from – but he was a man of his generation and he didn’t praise his children. I know he was proud of me, but he never told me. That generation took the attitude that you don’t praise children because they’ll get a big head. I know he bragged to his mates about his children, but he would never say it to my face. “When he died [10 years ago], my abiding emotion and thought was, ‘who am I going to do this for now?’. I spent my life trying to impress this man and now he’s gone.” The complex relationship between father and son is a central focus of Mr Robotham’s new book, and while Joe O’Loughlin’s father is nothing like Mr Robotham’s father, it’s
a more personal story than his other books and clearly draws on elements of his own relationship with his father. “Joe is discovering his father was not the man he thought he was,” Mr Robotham says. “He has to go on a journey – in solving the crime, Joe has to comes to terms with it. I manage to say things in the book I never managed to say in real life.” As soon as Mr Robotham finishes one book, he begins the next, fearing the spell will be broken. He’s almost finished his next book, which he assures readers will be just as good as the Joe O’Loughlin series.
“It’s a bit like breathing for me,” he says. “I can’t go a day without writing. When I’m writing the book, I think, this might be okay. But if I go a day without it, I think, this is going to be a terrible book. So I stay on top of it. If you’re writing a novel it’s not like you can cram on the last day. It’s a lot of work, so you have to start and climb.” Consequently, Mr Robotham walks through life not fully here, his head filled with characters and plotlines. His wife and three daughters have become accustomed to this. “I’m useless,” he says. “I miss dropping kids at school, I forget to pick things up from the shop. At dinner with my wife, she will kick me and say, ‘you’re with her aren’t you?’. Vivien does say she likes it when I finish a book, because she gets me back.” Mr Robotham is known for his great characters but says he struggles with plotting, so he writes organically, without crafting a detailed plot like many writers of his ilk. “I love creating character and I love writing dialogue and descriptions, but the idea I’ve got to get person A to local B, it’s like putting together an IKEA flat-pack piece of furniture. To me, it’s like playing three-dimensional chess and it does my head in. But writing a wonderful conversation between a father and daughter, that I love.” He also loves the lifestyle it affords him – 10 months of the year “locked in a box” writing and two months of the year attending writers’ festivals and talks here and internationally. “Being a writer is a bit like being a psychopath,” he says. “You have control of your characters’ day-to-day lives. I have a rich fantasy job in my head – I can get the girl, get the job, punish my enemies. I want to create a story where readers fall in love or care about a character – and then I do terrible things to them. “I don’t like three-word slogans, but if I did have one, it would be: make them care.”
Michael Robotham will speak about his new book, The Other Wife, at Maroochy RSL on Friday September 7 as part of the Sunshine Coast Libraries Author Events program. Visit library.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/WhatsOn/Author-Events for more information.

“It’s A Shame For You To Pay Full Price For Your Next Mattress, When Hundreds Of Queensland Residents Will Save Up To 57%” Everyone is calling them crazy, but you may as well take advantage of their 7 day sale where you can save up to 57% o retail prices on the best beds and mattresses.

ON A HIGH The future looks bright for season one Bachelor contestant Nikki-Rose Quinlan – she has married the man of her dreams and has her sights set on representing her country in the sport she loves. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
IMAGE: MALLORY SPARKLES PHOTOGRAPHY
ikki-Rose Quinlan may not have won the heart of Australia’s first Bachelor Tim Robards when she appeared on the inaugural season five years ago, but the Coolum Beach pro skateboarder has now married the man of her dreams. Ms Quinlan admits she was “a little lost” when she applied for The Bachelor at the age of 23 but she tied the knot with her Air Force pilot fiance, whose name she has kept out of the media, at Lamington National Park in the Gold Coast hinterland last week. A pioneer in female skateboarding, Ms Quinlan, now 28, is living in Newcastle and training every day for international competitions like the X Games and the Vans Park Series with the ultimate goal of securing a place in the 2020 Olympics. Ms Quinlan broke the Guinness World Record at Mona Vale Skate Park in Sydney for the most skateboard backside grinds in one minute in September 2017. While this is an impressive feat in itself, she did this just two months after spending 10 weeks in a moon boot with a broken foot. Growing up in Coolum and spending the majority of her time as the only woman at the local skate park, Ms Quinlan says remaining in the sport has been a “hard journey for girls” in years gone by. When she was competing internationally from 2008 to 2013, there were no women’s divisions in any major competition and she would be dropping in against the guys. “At that stage, there were only seven or eight girls skating
at a decent level around Australia and there would be times where it might be a year before I saw another girl at a park. Now there are thousands [around Australia] and every time I go to a park, there’s at least one other girl,” she says. “Our style and everything is different to a man’s style and it’s beautiful just to see girls at the skate park.

“I guess probably being focussed on positive affirmations rather than the negative ones got me through. I don’t allow any time for negativity. The journey has been epic and it’s really awesome to see that women are being encouraged in the sport.” A self-confessed adrenaline junkie, Ms Quinlan says skateboarding is a challenge that continues to inspire her, no matter how many times she battles through injuries. “You can never be the best at it; it’s always a challenge and it keeps you humble. When you get injured really badly, you learn so much through that and it helps you to progress,” she says. “In 2013, I broke my pelvis. It was a long journey to walk again and then the mental challenge that came along with that was pretty intense. I was just training doing an air and I’m not sure what happened. I popped out and fell from really high up. “It took me about nine months to be able to walk normally and everything. Generally if I’ve hurt myself skateboarding it’s either really bad or you’re fine. I’ve fractured my skull, broken my pelvis, arms and broke my foot last year.” While her sporting aspirations are high on the agenda, Ms Quinlan is also finishing up a bachelor of business, innovation and entrepreneurship at the University of Newcastle and continues to dabble in modelling. She hints there is a business venture coming in the near future but she is “keeping it on the DL at the moment”.

TAKE CONTROL OF AGEING One of Australia’s leading nutritional biochemists, and a seven-time number one bestselling author, Dr Libby Weaver shares her advice for ageing gracefully.
geing: no matter how we feel about it, it’s something we can’t avoid. What we do have more control over is how we transition through the years. Due to the incredible advances in western medicine, we’re likely to continue to live longer and longer. There are those who live with great vitality right into their elderly years, remaining active and independent. However, there are also those who unfortunately spend many of their later years battling health challenges. The good news is, there are things we can do to reduce the likelihood that we’ll age faster or experience debilitating health challenges in our later years. Here are a few:
EAT WHOLE REAL FOODS (MOSTLY PLANTS) The substances that give vegetables their colours act as antioxidants in the human body. Antioxidants help to combat oxidative stress by pairing up with the free radicals which, on their own, cause damage to our cells. Scientists are also starting to understand that antioxidants potentially play a role in slowing telomere shortening. But eating whole real foods isn’t just about what you get, it’s about what you miss out on too. Reducing your intake of processed foods means you’re less likely to overconsume refined sugars, trans fats, additives and preservatives, all of which can take a toll on our health through diminishing our digestive power and giving our livers more to process. No amount of exercise can combat the effects of a lousy way of eating. Changing your diet is a powerful way to promote anti-ageing and increase your quality of life.
AVOID SUGAR Not that long ago in human evolution, processed, high-sugar foods didn’t exist. Then, in the not-too-distant past, they were eaten only on special occasions, like birthday parties. But now they have become part of every day for too many people. I cannot say this enough: it is what you do every day that impacts on your health, not what you do sometimes. The ageing process will potentially be slowed if you consume less refined sugar.
MUSCLE AND MOBILITY From the age of 30 onwards, if we don’t actively build muscle we gradually lose it. Embrace resistance training. This doesn’t have to mean going to gym. In a yoga practice, you resist your own body weight. Pilates, too, is excellent resistance training, as is gardening, farm work, carrying groceries and children. Don’t avoid movement. Take the stairs regularly, for example. Build muscle.
MAKE WATER YOUR MAIN DRINK Water is the basis of all life, and that includes your body. Unintentional chronic dehydration can contribute to pain and inflammation in the body, not to mention fatigue, which can have an enormous impact on whether we feel youthful or not.
Dr Libby will be touring Australia speaking about ageing and hormones in her new event, The Hormone Factor. She will be speaking in the Sunshine Coast on September 10. Visit drlibby.com

WEAR IT’S AT
GIVE US A BREAK
The latest political crisis has Sami Muirhead pondering the virtues of a decent blazer.
Rebecca Grisman urges us all to support those who are supporting the nation’s many charities and causes.
ow disgraceful is our political landscape where our so-called leaders seem to have zero levels of loyalty and seem to be generally concerned with keeping their shiny white cars. However, the stand-out politician for me during the past fortnight has been Julie Bishop. And while it’s a shame she won’t be hosting fancy foreign receptions anymore I am glad she’s sticking around to dilute the testosterone levels and provide some kind of calming influence. The career woman has always impressed me with her wisdom, wit and willingness to toe the party line. But if I’m being completely honest I have always been most smitten by her wardrobe. The lady can dress! Her trademark jackets are the bomb. And I have started a love affair recently with the blazer. The tailored jacket and I were lovers many decades ago when I got my first job as a TV journalist. I went straight to Cue with my first pay cheque and invested in a power red suit. I was 20 trying to look 40, but the bosses told us straight: buy plain colour blazers as they make people focus on what you are saying rather than being distracted by crazy patterns or jewellery or cleavage. I spent the next 10 years adhering to the rules and I wish I had followed them in my personal life as well as I look back now and realise taffeta tops with huge bows on them and boobtubes after a few hours at the pub are dangerous fashion faux pass. Thank
goodness social media wasn’t big back then or my boobtube wardrobe malfunctions may have gained unwanted attention. It’s hard to hold a wine, your boobtube up and keep up your dignity. Girls understand. I began working in radio 15 years ago and tossed away my blazers in exchange for jeans and T-shirts. But I’m enamoured of them once again. They make me feel like a boss and they hide flabby arms and tummies. The blazer is my friend at a buffet table. The blazer has your back in photos. If I could tell my daughter in a letter what important wisdom I have learnt in my life it would not be about being a good and true person or working hard or living life to the full. Nope. It would be: “Wear a blazer, my love”. The blazer is rock solid. To channel Rick Astley, it will never give you up, never let you down, it will never run around and desert you. I mean, where would the T-Birds and Pink Ladies be without their blazers? Can you imagine if Coco Chanel did not make her fortune by inventing her iconic black and white jacket? And don’t get me started on how good Kate Middleton looks with her trademark navy blazer and jeans. I mean, she looks better in a tiara, but who wouldn’t? So girls let’s all cheer for the blazer and all its glory. And when those political puppets come on our screen focus less on the nonsense they are speaking and more on the sublime stalwart in business and fashion who is Julie Bishop.

here’s a lot more to volunteering than many see. I grew up in a family that gave time, expertise and often money. I sold raffle tickets for my country school and the Royal Flying Doctors from age six – all those Saturdays given up to working cake stalls was family time. These days not much has changed, I just spent five hours working a fete and my best friend gave 12 hours to fundraise for our kids – although it meant we didn’t actually see our boys all day. There’s a lot of volunteering and giving now that goes unseen, including driving others, cleaning, setting up and pulling down – all the unglamorous reality behind events and what we see on posts and TV. Yet it’s easy to criticise and comment on the work done. I’m volunteering my skills for Drought Angels, founded by two women in Chinchilla who knew that families doing it tough just needed someone to visit them. They still work their day jobs, taking nothing from the charity so every possible cent goes where it can help. Many waking hours and sleepless nights, too, are given for others. Hundreds of people step up in support, but hundreds also chip away on social media, implying issues, complaining or threatening. It’s exhausting for the charity workers on top of an already emotionally and physically exhausting effort. Most of us understand bullying but it’s hard to cop it online from keyboard warriors, or worse, directly from supposed
friends who suggest you’re not doing enough. The ones who say they’ll call the media if they don’t get priority can be called out, but it’s the people who undermine your hard work that hurt the most and discourage people from turning up, giving, sponsoring and caring any more. It’s mean and as un-Australian as it gets. There are so many causes and needs that volunteering and donating what you can is a daily ask. It is okay to focus on what you’re passionate about – kids, animals, farmers in drought, our environment,
“There’s a lot of volunteering and giving now that goes unseen” homelessness. It all matters and everything you give matters too. Giving from the heart is what it’s all about. Giving encouragement to others who are doing their best to make a difference, however big or small, is important too. Next time you think someone could do more, instead send a message of encouragement to someone you think is doing their best. You could be the one who makes all the difference to their efforts that day, and to whether they keep giving.

Westfield assets comprise 29 per cent of the assets, while non-retail assets – office buildings and convention/exhibition centres – comprise 13 per cent. Unibail has consistently generated strong growth in earnings per share since 2007, owing to the company’s high-quality
“Unibail’s €62 billion portfolio comprises 102 shopping centres in 27 retail markets including 56 flagship centres.”
rd Minnett now has coverage of Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield following the merger of Unibail Rodamco and Westfield
in late May. Unibail is a leading owner and developer of shopping centres across Europe, and its acquisition of Westfield has strengthened its global footprint, providing it with exposure to the US and the UK retail markets. Unibail has great access to capital markets and, in our view, its management team is excellent, leading us to initiate on Unibail with a Buy rating and a $19 target price. Unibail’s €62 billion portfolio comprises 102 shopping centres in 27 retail markets, including 56 flagship centres that represent 85 per cent of its total portfolio. The former
assets – we see its collection of retail assets as the best-quality portfolio globally – and its expertise in investment and divestment, development, leasing and management of the portfolio. The company expects the Westfield deal to be accretive to earnings per share from the first full fiscal year following completion. Noting the limited company
guidance with regard to the recent acquisition, we have incorporated the Westfield transaction into our model, and now forecast EPS growth for the combined entity of eight per cent per annum over the coming three years. This is driven by like-for-like rental growth, development completions, and cost-savings and revenue benefits. Unibail has delivered a stable and growing dividend over the past 10 years, with a payout ratio of 85 to 95 per cent. We assume 92.6 per cent in this year and 92.2 per cent in 2019. This is at the high end of 85 to 95 per cent guidance, but even if the payout is reset to the low end at 85 per cent, the dividend yield is still an attractive 5.7 per cent. In terms of development, Unibail has outlined a €13 billion development pipeline with target yields on cost of seven per cent-plus, which should create material value as it is built out over the next seven to eight years.

A local author hopes to create understanding and acceptance for children with ADHD. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
eeing her nephew Mason transition into schooling with severe ADHD was the inspiration for early childhood teacher Jodie Adams to become an author. The Palmview resident created My Friend Manny to encourage understanding and acceptance for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder – a neurodevelopmental disorder with a persistent pattern of behaviour. “It burned inside me thinking about [Mason] starting school and thinking no one would want to be his mate because of his behaviours and some of the things he does,” Ms Adams says. “I just wanted to help him to settle into school with those around him understanding what he is doing and why he is doing it, so he can have mateship and acceptance through his school life.” Ms Adams drew on real-life situations, which unfolded when her son played with Mason, to create the storyline for My Friend Manny. She used her 17 years of experience working in the early childhood sector to find a way to explain the complexities of ADHD in a positive manner that children can understand. She says the book has already resonated with many of her young fans

and she is considering future books that further explore Manny, or branch out into other challenges like autism and Tourette’s to build an even stronger pool of resources for children. “My main message is to be kind to everyone,” Ms Adams says. “Understanding every little person really does have a story and the way to better understand what that story is, is to be more open-minded.” “I want all little people to have a mate in the playground.” To buy your copy of the book or to find out more, visit myfriendmanny.com.

A BEAUTIFUL TRAGEDY
ee the classic tragic tale Madame Butterfly through new eyes with the Melbourne City Ballet putting a modern, neoclassical twist on a love story that reaches across cultures, oceans and time. The beautiful Japanese geisha, Cho-Cho (nicknamed Butterfly) hopelessly clings to the belief that her marriage to Lieutenant Pinkerton, an American naval officer, is a loving and eternal relationship. It is, however, not to be. It is only upon Pinkerton’s return that Butterfly realises their union was not as she thought, ending in one of opera’s most infamous tragedies. Redeveloped into a newly choreographed three-act ballet, the production will capture the story’s essence through the fusion of traditional Japanese and classical ballet movement with impressive new scenery, beautiful oriental costumes and Giacomo Puccini’s evocative score. Madame Butterfly is at The Events Centre, Caloundra on September 7 at 7.30pm. Tickets are available at theeventscentre.com.au.
READER’S CORNER AN UNSUITABLE MATCH Author: Joanna Trollope Publisher: Pan Macmillan RRP: $29.99 Reviewer: Gill Read
Relationships are the cornerstone of Joanna Trollope’s writing and in this novel, Ms Trollope teases out family dynamics that
result from the romance between divorced Rose and the charming Tyler, who are both in their sixties with adult children. The family members all have their own opinion on the relationship and how far it should go. Money is presented as a central worry, but is it just the money? The author digs into the subcurrents of concern – particularly those of Rose’s children. And is it enough to be in love? How pragmatic should we be? This novel drew me in slowly and the characters remained a bit two-dimensional to me, so that it took me a while to feel any interest in what was happening. Apart from being curious as to how Rose would resolve the dilemma she found herself in, I felt almost relieved to finish the novel.

This week, the sun, moon and Mercury move through Virgo, so you’ll be bold and extra brainy as you dazzle others with your knowledge and close attention to detail. It’s the perfect time to analyse, research and problem-solve in proactive ways.
This week, Venus visits your sign, and there’s a powerful and productive grand Earth trine. You’ll be able to put a positive spin on a perceived failure as you metaphorically transform a pig’s ear into a beautiful silk purse!
Education, joint ventures and group projects are favoured this week, as you display your leadership skills for all to see. There are opportunities for advancement, but it will take creative teamwork and sustained effort to turn a lucky break into long-term success.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
You have a natural knack for putting your foot firmly in your mouth. With Mercury and the new moon activating your career zone, patching up problems with students, colleagues, clients or customers will be easier now than at other times.
Are you smack-bang in the middle of a major stuff-up? With Saturn moving slowly through your sign (until 2020) avoid the tendency to be a nit-picking perfectionist. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes … and learning from them.
This week, there is a powerful grand Earth trine between your ruler Uranus, Mercury and Saturn, which encourages you to make a definitive decision. In order to make the best choice, look for smart, innovative strategies that can co-exist with the status quo.
Your intuition will help you find the appropriate way to handle a delicate situation with a worried loved one or a frazzled friend. Don’t underestimate your ability to calm and console others. But, promising more than you can deliver is a danger this week.
WORD STEP Complete the list by changing one letter at a time to create a new word at each step. One possible answer shown below.
It’s a wonderful week to improve close relationships and community connections, as the grand Earth trine increases your communication skills, creativity and concentration. Do your best to capitalise on any lucky opportunities that come your way.

UNDERSTANDING ‘GENERATION C’ Global-leader in real estate, Sherry Chris, dishes the dirt on successful marketing and selling techniques.
merican real estate innovator Sherry Chris made a splash when she shared her experience on leadership and real estate issues at the REIQ’s Women in Real Estate event earlier this month. The founder of US Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate has been named one of the most influential real estate leaders in the US. Entrepreneur Brad Inman also named Ms Chris as the Inman Innovator of the Year in 2010 and 2015. She has also been on Inman News’ 100 Most Influential Real Estate Leaders list for six consecutive years. “Entrepreneurs adore her, aspirational young women leaders follow her lead and her old boy peers have come to realise they have much more to learn from her than she does from them,” Mr Inman says. “Plus, all of the industry trade groups ask her to speak, seek her advice and beg her to serve on their boards and committees.” Ms Chris is well known for her insights into consumer behaviours and her abilities to forecast trends. Her latest area of research is into what she calls “Generation C”. This is not a generation defined by age,
but rather one defined by culture, shared interests and common goals. “This is an exciting new area of research and understanding these consumers can be very powerful,” she says. Ms Chris says it is more important now than ever before for agents to connect with potential sellers and buyers through all mediums available to them and it is important to understand where the consumer is on their real estate journey. “[This helps to determine] how can we communicate effectively to consumers who are interested in doing something near-term, the mid-term or the far-term,” she says. “And the way we communicate to consumers using that information is very different. What we want to do is to help take them to the dreaming stage and help them become more excited about the opportunity to make an investment in real estate.” Ms Chris says those people who are not aligning themselves with companies or brands that assist them with connecting to as many buyers and sellers as possible will simply be left behind. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate CEO Simon Cashman says the Sunshine
Coast market has been attracting their attention as the business seeks to move onto Australia’s eastern seaboard. “The Sunshine Coast has for a long time been a very strong market and while other markets are declining, the Sunshine Coast has held up due to a number of factors,” Mr Cashman says. “These relate to the significant spend currently underway with infrastructure – hospitals, and the major works to the airport, along with a good stock supply line and favourable pricing. “Unlike areas such as the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast has a high owneroccupier rate and this is significant in keeping values strong. “With larger holiday-focused areas and discretionary spending sectors, properties are sold off, by owners who do not live there, as a first resort should they need to sell, and this impacts on value.” With the region being so heavily lifestyle-based, Mr Cashman says it is appealing to their agency as a future destination. “Lifestyle is a key element to why people have gravitated to the area,” he says.

RAM 1500 EXPRESS
with MWP’s man in the water
Imagine your grandfather passing away and you go to his house to help clean up. In the garage is one Ferrari and one Lamborghini, which had been forgotten about. Both are over 20 years old and worth $1 million. Such is life for one punter recently. Now, this weekend they are predicting 5ft – 6ft perfection with light SW winds all weekend. The highway is being shut down for repairs Saturday and Sunday. This is my wish for you! But, sadly it’s not reality. You have crappy small waves with onshore winds to enjoy. Yippee! So maybe go visit your grandparents and get in the good books… oh, and check the garage. Have a great weekend peeps!
