ISSUE 521 October 12, 2018


Sixteen-year-old Pema lives in the remote mountains of Tibet. For generations her family has farmed their barley fields in peace. But when Pema’s father is taken away by the Chinese authorities, her world is shattered. This is the premise for Barley Fields On The Other Side Of The Mountain, a film shot entirely on location in the Himalayas with a non-professional cast. The film is playing at Big Screen Cinemas Caloundra on Wednesday, October 17 as part of the Caloundra Film Festival and we have two double passes to giveaway.



n the past 25 years, the survival rate for breast cancer has jumped from 76 per cent to 90 per cent. But, with eight women still losing their battle with the disease each day in Australia, there is more to be done. Cancer is a disease that does not discriminate. Most of us have been touched by cancer in some form – one in two Australians will be diagnosed at some point in their lifetime. The figures make your blood run cold. And yet, it’s important not to let cancer win, and to remember that, thanks to astounding research, it is no longer necessarily a death sentence. For each bad story I hear, I hear an equally inspiring one. A story of strength, of survival, of love. These stories give hope – something that drives patients and their families – so let’s share. Let’s celebrate the wins. Breast cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer. Fifty women face a breast cancer diagnosis every day in Australia. Why? Because our research, awareness and diagnostic tools continue to improve day by day, month by month, year by year. This Pinktober, we continue to spread the message of early detection and the importance of raising awareness and funds for further research. I thank the beautiful and brave women who have taken the courageous step to share their stories with us – it makes a difference. Let’s work together to reach that 100 per cent.

HITTING THE HIGH NOTES Where do you live? Marcoola.

What are you currently working on? I am the music director of the Sunshine Coast Concert Band.

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? The day I decided to become a musician. It was August 1952. That means I have had 66 years of the joy of making and sharing music with others.

Your family includes… Three sons, 10 grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and one great-greatgranddaughter.

Your greatest regret? I never conveyed my love to my wife sufficiently but only realised after her death in 2009.

First car? Austin A40.

What achievement are you most proud of? The formation of the Sunshine Coast Concert Band in 1996.

First job? Farmer.

Favourite book? The American Songbook by Ken Bloom. If your life was a book, what would the title be? I launched my book at my 90th birthday party: From Buderim Farmer to Band Leader.

Ken Chadwick BIO


Ken Chadwick grew up in Buderim and worked as a musician from 1952 to 1986 in Melbourne. He retired to Mount Coolum and in 1996 established the Sunshine Coast Concert Band, which has raised more than $700,000 for charities. He served as president of the Mount Coolum Golf Club and the Buderim War Memorial Community Association, and in 2009 he was awarded an OAM for his service to the community. He turned 90 this year.


Favourite song and why? The Impossible Dream from Man of La Mancha. It has amazing lyrics and a strong melody. The best recording is Jim Nabors, time signature changed to 4/4.

You are happiest when? I am entertaining an audience and realising a good financial result for the charity we are supporting.

“I have had 66 years of the joy of making and sharing music with others”

What are you watching? I enjoy My Kitchen Rules for the skill of the competitors. I like Andrew Denton: Interview for the interesting people. I like Dr Phil and how he solves emotional problems.

When was the last time you played sport and what was it? Golf – 18 holes today. I play three times a week. Best advice you’ve been given? Give love and you will receive love. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? My own fourth-floor apartment facing the sea. The view is from Point Arkwright to Yaroomba to Point Cartwright and Mooloolaba.

What frustrates you the most? Bad road direction signs. In particular those which should be marked slower for safety, and those marked 60 kilometres in deserted areas. How do you deal with your frustrations? I did successfully get a speed sign changed many years ago, but seem to busy to be bothered now when I doubt I’d have success.

If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? Follow your dream to become a musician. If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? My friend of 79 years Peter Lambert, plus Nelson Mandela and Sir Peter Cosgrove. If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? On charities, particularly cancer research, The Buderim Foundation and to my present partner, my eldest son and my grandchildren.

If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? Better roads to cope with our growing population.

NRL or AFL? NRL, as it was the winter sport in Queensland state schools, but equally AFL from my 34 years in Melbourne. I jump channels, but maybe with that million I could buy two TVs.

Best day in your life and why? My marriage. This was the start of 57 years of love and happiness.

Great strides in research and treatment mean more women are surviving breast cancer than ever before. My Weekly Preview speaks to those affected by cancer, and medical professionals working in the field, who believe in a breast cancer-free future. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

“There are so many medications and support networks you can tap into that make a really tough journey much easier” Suzi Hirst Image: Greg Gardner Photography


hen Suzi Hirst was preparing to go into hospital for her first round of chemotherapy to treat breast cancer, she stepped into the ring by turning up for treatment wearing boxing gloves. “I wanted cancer to know who it had taken on. I wasn’t going to let it beat me or bring me down,” she says. “I went into treatment every time with a smile, thinking it was not going to stop me and was only going to make me stronger.” Husband Harry and daughter Alexandra then began joining Mrs Hirst in the ritual of dressing up every time she went in for treatment. Their clothing included 1920s costumes, penguin suits, Chinese-inspired outfits complete with paddy hats and bright pink outfits complete with pink wigs and feather boas. The now 61-year-old Minyama resident was diagnosed in December 2014 with triple-positive stage 3 invasive ductal cell cancer of the breast that had spread to the lymph nodes. “You have to stay positive. If you lose that positivity then everyone around you loses it. I thought, ‘this is now my journey and I have to be on top of it as much as a I can’,” she tells My Weekly Preview. “I’m not a vain person, but I hated seeing myself without hair because then I saw somebody with cancer and I didn’t want to give cancer that face in my life. “Very few people knew how sick I was, because I always tried to be upbeat and be

positive and that’s how I live my life every day now; my perspective has changed in so many ways since the cancer.” Although she is now three-and-a-half years clear, Mrs Hirst says she will never forget how her world changed “in the blink of an eye”. “I’m a retired nurse and I’d had a clear mammogram in April/May and I felt the lump towards the end of October, but I ignored it, which was the stupid thing to do,” she recalls.

to see me, I knew exactly what it was about.” Mrs Hirst underwent a lumpectomy, six months of chemotherapy, seven weeks of daily radiation treatment and then a bilateral mastectomy and breast reconstruction in a 20-month period. Breast cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia and the incidence of it continues to grow. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes and one in every 715 men. Fifty women face a breast

“One day this will just be a blur in my rear-vision mirror. A time when something in my body went wrong and I had to have it surgically removed” Sally Simpson

“In December I went to the doctor for a routine prescription and asked him to check it while I was there. That was the Thursday before Christmas. He got me in on Friday for the ultrasound and they immediately took a biopsy because they were closing for Christmas. “I decided not to tell my family at that stage, so when we got the call on the Monday morning to say my doctor wanted

cancer diagnosis every day in Australia and in that same time, eight women will lose their lives to breast cancer. However, in the 25 years since the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s inception, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer has increased from 76 per cent to 90 per cent. The NBCF’s ultimate mission is to completely eradicate any deaths from the

disease by targeting the remaining 10 per cent over the next 12 years. Mrs Hirst says there is now so much more awareness of breast cancer and the treatment is now focused on the particular cancer you are diagnosed with. “I’m HER2 positive, so I was given 18 rounds of Herceptin, which is a miracle drug and with an aggressive form of breast cancer like mine, Herceptin is now keeping patients like me alive,” she says. “Just 10 years ago, you would die very quickly from HER2. While the treatment is still really tough, there are so many medications and support networks you can tap into that make a really tough journey much easier. “There are more cancer survivors than ever before, and they are living longer. New treatments are coming out every day, the research is fantastic, and the outlook is positive overall.” Mrs Hirst continues to live life to the fullest every day – she walked the Great Wall of China with other breast cancer survivors in 2016 and continues to participate in and host breast cancer fundraisers. “I also dance with my husband, which was something I didn’t do for 40 years because I felt stupid dancing,” she says. “All those opportunities I’ve lost by not dancing with my husband. Now I will dance at every opportunity, seize those moments and have fun because that’s what life is all about.” Mountain Creek mother-of-two Sally

KEEPING ABREAST OF MEDICAL ADVANCEMENTS A future where a breast cancer diagnosis is no longer fatal is getting closer by the day, with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) focused firmly on its target to reach zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. Huge advancements in technology and practices have led to breast cancer research accelerating at a rapid rate. NBCF-funded researcher Professor Riccardo Dolcetti from the University of Queensland and Diamantina Institute, who is developing a new method of personalised immunotherapy to treat breast cancer, says this emerging field will target treatments to the genetic make-up of their tumour. Research into less toxic treatments that could target the cancerous cells and not the healthy cells, less invasive surgery, reducing radiation levels and removing fewer lymph nodes is already underway. Last Friday, Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, Karen Andrews announced researchers have used the Australian Synchrotron in Clayton, Victoria to develop a new advanced imaging technique, which could be used on the first patients by 2020. With more than 800,000 mammograms performed in the country each year, this will mean better image quality, a more accurate diagnosis, a smaller radiation dose and less discomfort for patients. National Breast Cancer Foundation CEO Professor Sarah Hosking says, “We want all women in Australia to feel empowered and assured that we are doing everything we can, through our research, to make a future where they don’t have to live in fear of deaths from breast cancer,” she says.

The young and old descended on Kings Beach for the four-day event, which featured a stellar line-up of artists including The Waifs, Birds of Tokyo, Eskimo Joe and Sneaky Sound System. A distant storm provided a spectacular background to Saturday night’s performance by John Butler Trio and even as the sky opened up and rain briefly fell, the crowd of thousands continued to dance.

NEW WATER OPTION FOR CONSCIOUS COASTERS The first Water3 ‘refill stations’ have hit the Sunshine Coast, with the potential to replace the use of almost 135,000 plastic bottles annually from Noosa to Caloundra. In its crusade, social enterprise Water3 has installed 14 stations offering still or sparkling spring water, giving customers the option of bringing their own bottle or purchasing a reusable one dispensed from the machine. Water3 co-founder Damien Stone (pictured) says he wants to have a bigger impact than simply reducing landfill waste. “We want to put pressure on the bottled water companies to take some responsibility for their contribution to climate change,” he says.



University of the Sunshine Coast students have returned home from the UniSport Australia National Championships on the Gold Coast with a swag of medals and even some games records. Highlights from the Nationals Division 1 multi-sport carnival included gold medals to taekwondo competitor Louie Beatty and golfer Korey Apps (pictured right). In track and field, Daniel Green scored bronze in the shot put, while Rowan Sutton won bronze in the decathlon. Jane Larkin broke an 800-metre record in the heptathlon with a time of two minutes 22.96 seconds, and won her 200-metre event, but finished fifth overall against a strong field. In team events, USC’s men’s futsal squad finished third, as did the university’s mixed fours beach volleyball team and its Cheer and Dance team.

CANNABIS ON THE WAY Medifarm has announced it will be releasing its locally-grown medical cannabis products to the Australian market by January. Director Adam Benjamin says the start of cultivation at the secret Sunshine Coast facility marked the beginning of a new, exciting era. Mr Benjamin also exclusively hosted medical cannabis world leader from the Government of Israel, Ministry of Health, Senior Medical Advisor Dr Michael Dor, who visited the site earlier this week before going on to be the guest speaker at this year’s annual Royal Australian College of General Practitioner’s conference on the Gold Coast.

Stockland’s $5-billion Aura community has cemented its place as Australia’s top masterplanned community for land sales, new figures reveal. Aura, the first new community in Australia to be designed and constructed to the world’s highest environmental and sustainability standards, posted 746 sales in the past year, according to the latest National Land Survey data by Research. The result also means that 44 per cent of all new land sales on the Sunshine Coast in 2017–18 occurred at Aura. Aura is the largest masterplanned community ever undertaken in Australia under single ownership and more than 20,000 new homes will be created on the 24-squarekilometre site over the next 30 years.

MAWENI MAKES LIGHTNING 10 Sunshine Coast Lightning has welcomed goal keeper Phumza Maweni (pictured playing against Caitlin Bassett in the Netball Quad Series earlier this year) to its ranks, rounding out the Club’s 10-strong squad for the 2019 Suncorp Super Netball season. Ms Maweni, who stands at 186 centimetres tall and hails from South Africa, has played in the Vitality Netball Superleague in England in recent years and competes in the international arena as part of the SPAR Proteas. Lightning acting head coach Kylee Byrne says she believes the Club has added a world-class athlete in Ms Maweni.

STYLE & SUBSTANCE Beautiful clothing is all in a day’s work for Sunshine Coast International Fashion Festival founder Jacinta Richmond, the accidental fashionista who is about to host her eleventh annual event. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


he glamorous and sociable fashion industry isn’t the natural habitat of an introvert, but Jacinta Richmond says it chose her, rather than the other way around. The director of the Sunshine Coast International Fashion Festival (SCFF) says she’s not a great networker and is usually looking for good hiding spots when the festival rolls around each year. “I’m usually in an office area doing lots of press releases, getting prepared for post-show award announcements, hearing from VIPs who can’t make it and rearranging seats because you can’t have the front rows empty, reworking model run sheets because the model had her appendix out the night before…” She’s had to deal with all this and more since she launched the festival, almost by accident, in 2008. A Melbourne girl, she began her career in hairdressing, then moved into venue management booking bands, and finally into marketing and fundraising. She married in 2000 and had a daughter, Leilani. The marriage was short-lived and Ms Richmond headed north, first to Byron Bay, then to Coolum. She decided to stay on the Sunshine Coast, where she has raised her daughter, who is now about to finish high school. “I was living up here and was a bit of a shopaholic,” Ms Richmond says. “I suppose I was trying to fill various emotional voids. I was talking with some boutique owners about how stylish so many residents on the Sunshine Coast were. We decided to hold the Sunshine Coast Style Awards. “Within a week or two, they decided it was too much hard wok, but I just went ahead and did it. “Two local designers donated prizes and the night was a huge success. Those two designers asked if I would put on a Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival, and I launched it in 2008. “We were only going to do one, but it took on a life of it’s own and now we’re about to do our eleventh.” While Ms Richmond says she’s not a natural fit for the schmoozing that goes along with the fashion industry, she has a passion for fashion. “My grandmother had been a champion ballroom dancer, so she had amazing costumes and costume jewellery. My sister and I would dress up and play shops under the lemon tree. Her costumes had lots of sequins, chiffon and

silk. We’d also use our mum’s dance hall dresses from the 1950s. “I was always interested in fashion. If we did something really well and Mum was really proud of us, we might go to the shops and get a T-shirt from East Coast Jeans, which was the cool thing. I loved my Dolly magazine, then Cleo, then I made a jump to Vogue.” When she thinks back to her past fashion failures and triumphs, two pieces come to mind. “My one ‘oh my lord, what was I thinking’ piece was a white leather jacket with perforated

holes in the sleeves. I can’t believe I ever liked it. It was the ’80s and everything was Miami Vice. My favourite piece was a fluffy blue jumper – the pattern was in the back of a Dolly magazine and Mum knitted it for me. It was royal blue.” She’s more fashion-forward these days, describing her style as “Melbourne black meets rock and roll middle eastern hippie chic”, however her wardrobe is considerably lighter after a year of laying off the retail therapy. “I committed to no personal shopping for myself all year,” she says. “I just had too much. I have a few styling clients so I still get to go shopping with them. “My new thing is if I’m to purchase something, can I rock it when I’m 85? Is the quality there, is the cut and the style there? Is the length right? All that kind of thing.” Ms Richmond is now in lockdown, preparing for the SCFF in a week. The only two days a year she has off are Christmas Day and her birthday, as she juggles 11 months of organising the festival with speaking gigs. “The festival is a labour of love,” she says. “My passion comes when I discover someone that others haven’t discovered yet, a fresh, real talent and I can see that potential. I know they have potential when I can’t sleep I’m so excited. “But potential and longevity and ability are different things. Somebody can have all the potential in the world, but if ego or lack of work ethic get in the way, it doesn’t matter about that potential anymore.” The festival will be held at a new venue, the Sebel Pelican Waters, and Ms Richmond says it’s going to take it to a new level. “We’ve got a lot of new, fresh labels both from within Australia and internationally. “I’m looking forward to seeing everyone enjoying our climate, how we do business by the pool, at the bar, by the beach, and being able to showcase that. “Our visitors are coming a bit earlier this year and leaving a bit later, so they’ll have more time to hang out and enjoy it.”

BEAUTY TIP Washing your face in carbonated water has emerged as a new trend. Dermatologists say bubbly water has a slightly acidic pH of 5.5, which is the same pH as our skin. Tap water has a pH of 7, which can disrupt the skin’s outermost layer, leading to dryness and irritation. Carbonated water also helps break up dirt and oil in clogged pores.

Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast invites you to celebrate Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast is celebrating its 20th birthday by rolling out a host of premium services and special offers.


ercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast is pulling out all stops to celebrate some major milestones. The much-loved local dealership is celebrating 20 years on the Sunshine Coast and ten years in its gleaming glass-fronted showroom on Maroochy Boulevard. To get the party started, the 20th anniversary sale event has more than 30 demonstrators and 25 pre-owned Mercedes-Benz vehicles up for grabs at never to be repeated prices. If you’ve always dreamed of owning a Mercedes-Benz, this is an incredible opportunity. Current Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast customers are in for some special treatment, too. Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast AMG customers will be offered a free airport valet service if flying in and out of the Sunshine Coast between 9am or 4pm Monday to Friday and returning within 5 days. “You can come to Mercedes-Benz, we drive you in your car to the airport, take it back to our dealership, wash it and park it underneath our building,” says spokesperson Michelle Evans. “When you return, we’ll come and collect you

from the airport in your car.” This offer gives you five days of secure free parking, terms and conditions apply and of course this service needs to be booked at least 7 working days in advance. “We also have a separate offer for all Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast customers,” Michelle says. “Each morning between 7.30am and 9.30am, our service department will offer a free carwash and coffee before work. We anticipate high demand for this service, so bookings are essential.” As part of these fantastic offers currently being rolled out, the service department is offering a free concierge service for clients who live one hour’s drive from the dealership, from Noosa all the way down to Bribie Island. “Again, bookings are essential because we need to make sure we have a driver available, but if you need your car serviced, we’ll come and pick up your car,” Michelle says. Mercedes-Benz is a major sponsor of Sunshine Coast charity Sunnykids, which helps disadvantaged and at-risk children, and the team

has put together a brilliant fundraiser. World champion US supercross/motorcross rider Justin Brayton has kindly donated a brand-new 2018 Honda CRF50R kids’ bike. “He’s the number one rider in the world and recently won Daytona,” says Michelle. “This bike is detailed exactly the same as his bike. It has the

same specs, the same stickers and he’s signed it. We’ll be selling tickets to win the bike for $5 each and all proceeds will go to SunnyKids.” The raffle will be drawn on December 15, 2018 at the Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast Dealership where tickets are available for purchase.

Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast 20th Anniversary Sale Event To celebrate our 20th year on the Sunshine Coast, we have exceptional savings across our entire range. With more than 30 demonstrators and 25 pre-owned Mercedes-Benz vehicles available at prices never to be repeated, there has never been a better time to call into Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast. Valid until Oct 31, 2018 or while stocks last.

UP, UP AND AWAY The Buderim 9 Challenge course has changed, offering fresh challenges to new and returning riders. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.



ith more than 300 cyclists taking on nine hills over 76 kilometres in three hours or less, it’s no wonder there continues to be a steady stream of people wanting to take on the epic Argon Law Buderim 9 Challenge. The course will be fresh for everyone, even those who have shown up to compete in the past seven successful years, with the start and finish locations being relocated to the Wanderers Soccer Club, Ballinger Road at the southern foothills of Buderim. Australian cycling champion and Buderim 9 ambassador Henk Vogels says the route revision is necessary to accommodate the growing popularity of the challenge. “This also means the order of the 76-kilometre hill challenge needed a shake-up, which will give the ever-faithful returning riders a new perspective and keep them on their ‘pedals’,” he says. Registrations for the December 16 event opened on October 9 and riders have until December 12 to secure their spot in the challenge. Early birds who get in before November 2 will also receive the popular Buderim 9

rider jersey included in their registration. Far from being just a physical challenge, the Buderim 9 is also a muchneeded fundraiser for local cerebral palsy organisation, CPL – Choice, Passion, Life. Argon Law director of principal sponsor John Gallagher is encouraging riders to

raise as much pre-event donations as possible for the great cause. “Set yourself the target for your name to appear on the prestigious Argon Law perpetual trophy – as the Highest Fund Raiser of the 2018 Buderim 9 Challenge,” he says. “Fundraisers go in the draw for a

cycling trip around the French Alps sponsored by Velo Tours. “Buderim 9 proceeds support those living with cerebral palsy and related physical disabilities and your donations change the lives in a small but meaningful way of many families on the Sunshine Coast,” he adds. CPL Sunshine Coast manager Georgina Quin-Conroy says more than $24,000 was raised last year. “We are so grateful for the efforts and generosity of all those who continue to help make this event such an extraordinary success,” she says. The ride, which is proudly sponsored by My Weekly Preview, began in 2010 and quickly became a tradition for cyclists who felt fit enough, and perhaps mad enough, to take on the mammoth challenge of nine Buderim hills in under three hours. While local riders were quick to show their support, the word has certainly gone out and last year riders travelled from interstate and even abroad to participate.

Troy Derwin, Ord Minnett Buderim.



ack in mid-August, I outlined why we thought a Rio Tinto share buyback was likely. That has now transpired, as Rio Tinto has announced a major share buyback. The shares have done well, rising from around $73 to more than $78 as I write, a gain of more than seven per cent in seven weeks. I provide an update now to help readers understand the decision that they now must make with their Rio Tinto shares. On September 20, the company announced it intends to return $3.2 billion of post-tax coal asset sale proceeds to shareholders. This will be done through a $3.2 billion ‘share buyback programme’, a combination of an off-market buyback of the Australian shares (up to $2.7 billion) and the residual through an on-market

buyback of the UK listed ‘plc’ shares. Shareholders can tender shares in to the buyback at discounts of between eight and 14 per cent to the prevailing market price, and/or at the final price. Shareholders can also specify a minimum price at which they are willing to sell. The buyback price will be the lowest price at which Rio Tinto can buy back the amount of shares it seeks. Shareholders will be scaled back to the extent that there are more shares available at the buyback price than the number of shares it is targeting. Rio Tinto intends to buy back a minimum of 70 shares from each shareholder who has successfully tendered, or if this would leave that shareholder with 30 shares or less, then they intend on buying back the entire holding. The buyback price will have two components – a capital component of $9.44 and a fully franked dividend equal to the difference between the buyback price and $9.44. We recommend you contact a financial adviser to discuss your personal situation before deciding on tendering shares.

The Black Glossy Cockatoo artwork



The image of a Black Glossy Cockatoo has added life to the external wall of Beerwah Library after artist Mieke van den Berg worked her creative magic on a new large scale mural. The artwork complements other murals inside the building, which were done as part of the library refurbishment earlier this year. According to the artist, the Black Glossy Cockatoo was selected as the subject to tell a story that connects the mural to the library and the natural environment surrounding it. A cockatoo’s screech announces that rain is coming but it also represents nurture, nourishment, and replenishment – something Sunshine Coast Libraries aim to provide their members and visitors. The mural was funded through a Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) grant. For a list of recipients, more information and to apply, visit council’s website or contact a RADF Liaison Officer on 5420 8616.

It’s that time of year when storm and bushfire seasons are upon us. The Sunshine Coast may have fared well with minimal severe weather so far this year, but recent years have repeatedly proven that we can never be complacent. We recently hosted our annual disaster management exercise, titled Exercise Evictus, which put Sunshine Coast and Noosa disaster management groups to the test in a joint real-time practice event. It was a great opportunity to test our plans and processes, particularly our evacuation procedures, and provide our personnel with a refresher ahead of the summer storm season. But it’s important that being prepared is not just left to the experts. Get Ready Week (October 8-14) is a good reminder for us all to prepare our homes and businesses in case of disasters. A great place for information is council’s award-winning Disaster Hub website – And please sign up to our Coast Alert notification service by downloading the Sunshine Coast Council app (search for SCC app). Don’t be complacent. Be ready.

FIND DEVELOPMENTS IN YOUR AREA Easier to find information is among the benefits the new Development.i application tracking system will deliver for the Sunshine Coast community. Officially launched on Wednesday, Development.i lets users navigate, visualise, track and be alerted to development applications in their street, suburb, division or across the region. Simple and streamlined, it will enable our community to be better engaged in the planning process.

Sami Muirhead has always hated celebrating her birthday, but a reality check has prompted a major attitude change.

Leigh Robshaw has a message for early leavers – it’s time to suck it up and stick around.

resentment over the next year. Fast-forward to this year. I was still being ridiculous and not wanting a fuss. The day before my birthday, my little boy broke his arm and needed to be taken by ambulance to hospital because it was such a nasty break. My friend, who is a doctor, happened to be with us and was a pillar of strength. My little guy was eventually released from hospital and was with me on my birthday. I have never been happier with a present than being able to hold his little body in my arms. Nothing reminds you how much you totally love your kids than when they are injured.

“The day before my birthday, my little boy broke his arm…” Now, this same doctor friend helps treat people who are fighting cancer. She very quietly said to me that she has treated many patients who are dying at age 25 and who would love to be my age (in their forties) and have three children to celebrate with. Talk about gaining some perspective. I realised birthdays are a wondrous milestone. So, we did celebrate with both our families with champagne and croissants for breakfast and a swim at the beach. Perfection. And my husband is taking me away for a weekend – what a truly perfect gift of time. Next year I may even post the date on Facebook.

is the season of school concerts and sports presentations, and I’ve noticed a tendency for some parents to do the bolt as soon as their kids have had their moment of glory. I don’t know if it has always been like this, or if it’s just a sign of the times. I was at a soccer presentation recently and as each child from the Under 5s to the Under 15s received their awards, the audience petered out like guests at a wedding when the alcohol has run dry. All the littlies received a hearty applause as they jumped up to receive their trophies first. But by the time the final awards were announced, at least three-quarters of the audience had blown away like dandelions in the breeze, and the claps of the few people remaining were barely audible. The same thing happens at school concerts. I get it. No one really wants to be spending a weeknight watching kids sing out of tune or bungle their lines. One excuse I’ve heard is ‘some of us have to get up early for work’. News flash: most of us have to get up for work and bailing from a school concert as soon as your child has been showered with applause is not only selfish, it’s not setting a good example. Think about it. Your child, and you by default, are part of a team, a club, a school community. That club or school community wouldn’t exist without all the other members – the people who clap for your child. What you’re teaching your child, if you leave early,

is that they’re the most important member of that group and all that matters is that they are applauded. It reminds me of ghosting, where you sneak out of a social gathering without saying goodbye. I’ve been known to do a bit of ghosting at parties, usually because I don’t want to interrupt anyone busting awesome moves on the dance floor. But there’s a major difference here: they’re adults and if it’s a really good party, they won’t remember who left when, and won’t care. They’re not vulnerable children, excited and nervous about showing off their skills and being duly acknowledged for their efforts by a bunch of (supposedly) caring adults. It’s one night or afternoon of the year. Suck it up and take one for the team. Your presence shows you care, even if you don’t. I’m not one of these ‘every kid gets a medal’ parents. Kids can see right through that and assign no value whatsoever to it. Nor am I the kind of parent who attempts to rescue my children from disappointment at every turn. They need to experience disappointment to build resilience, but not in this way. I’m not a perfect parent by any means, but something I’m proud of is the time I’ve put in to attend countless school concerts, assemblies and sports presentations. And I’ve clapped for every single child, not just my own. Because it might not mean a lot to me, but it does to them.

here are two types of people in the world: those who love their birthday and those who would rather slam their fingers in the car door rather than celebrate it. I am in that last camp. It is not just my ageing years I am afraid of, although I do have unfinished breeding business and perhaps this subconsciously upsets me. Damn you, shrivelled eggs! It is simply that birthdays make me anxious. I get nervous thinking about all that attention piled onto me and I get even more nervous wondering how to thank everyone and I start to fret at the thought of friends and family spending their money on me. The only person who is expected to know I want a fuss made, even though I say I do not want a fuss made, is my long-suffering husband. Last year it all came to a head. I bought my own present, as I have done for decades. I said I don’t like birthdays – I did not say I do not like spending money. So on my birthday, my husband simply asked where the gifts were I had bought myself. I threw him a look and off he marched, only to return home with a Betty Boop coffee cup. I am a mug snob and only drink out of fine bone china. Usually the cup is pale pink and covered in roses. So the bright red Made In China chunky coffee cup bursting with Betty Boop’s ample bosom was a frightful shock first thing in the morning. The cup came to be a symbol of

TODD’S TALES Todd Widdicombe is an ideas man, and the latest one is his best.


een a tough week for me on the million-dollar ideas front with the final rejection for my product Nachos in a Can coming through on the email yesterday. The powers that be have labelled my concept of deliciously cheesy Mexican nosh about as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike and as welcome as a barbecue at a vegan convention. It seems the boffins can’t get past how we’d package the sour cream for the aforementioned nachos. They think it’ll go off. Seriously, it’s sour cream everybody – how much worse can it get!? They then said Nachos in a Can was the worst idea since Diet Water, suggesting my business plan was a joke. How rude. I’ll tell you who had a terrible business plan. Sally. Remember Sally? She sold seashells down by the seashore, where there were already plenty of seashells for free! Nuts! Anyhoo, this latest brilliant idea has now hit the scrap heap along with my vision for the Drive-thru Strip Club, the Chopsticks Fan (cools your noodles as you eat them), the Flagon Tie (smuggle beer into the office) and the Alarm Clock Toaster (apparently a fire hazard). There were also Fundies (that’s undies built for two), the Pizza Scissors,

Toddy’s Mowercycle (a bike with blades at the front to, you guessed it, mow your lawn), and just when you think it’s all over, the best ever is my idea for a gym called Resolutions. For the first two weeks it’s a gym and the rest of the year it’s a bar. I know, right? Brilliant! The only thing more genius than that is it’ll be a really cool bar, but wait for it, with more than one bartender. Mind blown right? To brighten my spirits after this latest business setback I’ve invested in a cold sixer of tasty frothy chops from our most excellent buddies at Little Creatures. Fair dinkum, Furphy Refreshing Ale is the best thing to come out of Geelong since the dreamy Mark Beretta from Seven’s Sunrise. Long before ‘furphy’ meant tall tales, it was the name for storage tanks (or was it?) invented by the Furphy family of Shepparton whose fermentation tanks are still used today to create Furphy beer. (Or are they?) Another nod to being totally Aussie is the fact Furphy uses 100 per cent Victorian hops and malt. (Or does it?) With its clean, crisp taste and delicate balance of fruit and malt, the Furphy is smooth and refreshing and the perfect session ale this spring. It’s the beer I’m telling all my mates about – Furphy, the reason I get out of bed every afternoon. Tell you what would go well with this brew, a kebab. Pity I haven’t got one at home. Hang on. Kebab in a Can! Somebody write that down. Stoked this little ripper has made it north to Queensland, I give it a red-hot 4.5 out of five thumbs up.

FURPHY REFRESHING ALE 375ml bottles or cans 4.4% AV Available at Cellarbrations Wises Road Buderim, Brightwater and Parklands. It is also on tap at the Brightwater Hotel and Parklands Tavern.

Creativity is highlighted, but don’t be deterred by ongoing challenges. Hard work and calm consultation will take you far! When it comes to work or a social media matter, you have the potential to achieve success, but it won’t come without plenty of effort.

What a wonky week for partnerships! With Venus (your ruling planet) retrograde, plus Mercury and Mars creating mischief, relationships won’t run smoothly, so do your best to communicate calmly and clearly as you put out interpersonal spot-fires.

With Venus reversing through your sign, it’s time to rethink your approach to a personal problem. Don’t underestimate the power of your intuition. Talking things over with a trusted friend will also help you view the situation from a new perspective.





Many people will be particularly sensitive this week, so it would be best to keep idiosyncratic ideas and controversial comments to yourself. Money matters also look complicated, as abundance planet Venus is in retrograde mode until November 16.

This week, you may feel as if you’re going backwards with your partner or peer group. And, be careful that your perfectionist streak doesn’t get out of control! The more you try to make things ‘perfect’, the more you’ll attract push-back from others.

Procrastination is out and being proactive is in, as you make the most of Mars charging through your sign. Get motivated, initiate ideas and walk your talk – just make sure you get the balance right between thinking things through and taking action.

Your imagination, creativity and intuition are firing. But, the lines between fact and fantasy could easily become blurred so it’s not a good time to make important decisions (especially involving love, work or money). Be a patient fish and wait.

Your wonderfully witty side blossoms as you brainstorm ideas and amaze others with your quick-witted quips. But, if you are too hasty, you could put your foot firmly in your mouth. Instead, you need to slow down and think things through.




Are your dreams achievable? Or are you being unrealistic about a project that’s due to be completed? Consider bringing someone else on board. If you think creatively, work hard and capitalise on your group connections, you’ll eventually taste success.

A relationship could be strained as Mercury, Mars and retrograde Venus regurgitate an unresolved issue from the past. The worst way to deal with it? An arrogant attitude. The best way to handle it? An abundance of patience and diplomacy.

home WORDS: Tamara Simoneau & Cassandra Fenaughty PHOTOGRAPHY: Leah Hermann and Cassandra Fenaughty


here was a lot to love about the heritage-inspired home Cassandra and Chris Fenaughty spotted during a house-hunting weekend two years ago. Its classic facade and sprawling front yard on a quaint Buderim hillside cul-de-sac were hard to pass up, and a tired interior ripe for a DIY revival was right up their alley. “It was a former rental home and it was really dark inside with a dated kitchen and bathroom, and nothing in the backyard,” says Mrs Fenaughty. “We’ve renovated before, so we weren’t intimidated, and the possibilities really excited us.” The Fenaughtys are both landscape architects, so they relished the blank canvas they had in the backyard and knew exactly what they wanted to create. “We were after that quintessential Queensland indoor-outdoor flow to a pool and entertaining area off a main back deck,” Mrs Fenaughty says. Inside it was all about flooding the main living areas and master bedroom with natural light. “We achieved this by adding windows and doors, knocking walls out and adding a large double door to our bedroom that looks out to our beautiful pool area.” It took two years of hard work and endless weekends on the tools to transform the home, and now the couple is looking forward to enjoying lazy days by the pool with family and friends as summer gets into full swing.

BATHROOM The Fenaughtys wanted to enlarge and enliven the old bathroom, so they demolished a wall between the existing toilet and bathroom to create an open-plan and airy space. A piece of timber felled from their former property was cleverly repurposed as a new vanity with his and her sinks, and the Caroma Origin Bath from Harvey Norman Commercial is perfect for a long soak. Archistone tiles in beige from Jerry and the Tilemakers fit the home’s neutral palette.

LIVING The Fenaughtys designed an open-plan living solution by combining two small living areas, removing an arched dividing wall and adding a large square awning window. The original timber floors needed a refresh, so the pair had them sanded and finished by local company Stfi with Bona Naturale in a matte finish. Walls and ceilings have been lightened and brightened with a coat of Dulux Lexicon Quarter.

BACKYARD A bland backyard has been given the ultimate makeover perfect for our long hot summers thanks to a Federation pool from Narellan Pools and a beautiful travertine stone surround. A frameless glass fence by Blitz Glass allows uninterrupted views to the surrounding gardens.

The charming heritage exterior was given a classic update with a combination of Colorbond Surfmist on garage doors, gutters, fascias and the roof by Over the Top Roofing. The Fenaughtys chose the ever-popular Dulux Lexicon Quarter for doors, trims and balustrades and a custom colour has transformed the weatherboard. The garden was spruced with a mix of exotic and native tropicals for maximum street appeal and a row of Murraya (mock orange) has been planted below the front deck to create a verdant trim as it matures.

DINING AND KITCHEN The old floorplan didn’t make sense with Mrs Fenaughty’s vision for a better indoor-outdoor flow so she took advantage of the raised floor and had the kitchen and dining area switched. The new dining zone has french doors that open onto the deck and pool and the new kitchen connects to the existing laundry, which is now a combined butler’s pantry, laundry and mudroom. Ackerman Barkle installed the new galley kitchen to her specifications, combining custom timber joinery finished in a matte teak stain, with Laminex Polar White doors and a pure white quartz benchtop.

Spring / Summer Spring has sprung and it’s the perfect time to save with our Floors for Living Catalogue Sale!

MASTER BEDROOM Chasing light and sense of space in their master bedroom that looks out to the leafy backyard, the couple installed a large timber sliding door that opens to a new covered verandah with a view to the pool. Mr Fenaughty reconditioned original Parker furniture pieces for the room with Cabots Stain and Varnish in Walnut. Mrs Fenaughty dyed and stretched the feature shibori wall hanging.

Australian-based business and trend-driver Haymes Paint has unveiled its latest colour forecast.

Colours used are Haymes Light Admiralty Grey, Haymes Ultimate Flooring in Chateau and Haymes Simply Woodcare Aqualac Satin. Photography by Martina Gemmola.

Colour Conscience – Volume 11 encompasses three different contrasting hues – Cohabitate, Contribute and Comfort – that celebrate making colour choices not only based on aesthetics, but also “by considering underlying thoughts around how colour impacts our mood and wellbeing”. “[These themes] embody the ultimate goal of being mindful of

the choices we make and how they contribute to the way we live,’’ Haymes Colour and Concept manager Wendy Rennie says. “Surrounding yourself with a feel-good vibe can have an uplifting effect and help us to live in a positive and responsible way.” Here, we take a look at the Cohabitate palette and ways you can incorporate the look into your home.

Colours used are Haymes Streamwood, Haymes Passion, Haymes Ultimate Seamless Flooring in Storm and Haymes Ultimate Flooring in Chateau. Pic credit: Haymes Paint

WHAT IS THE COHABITATE PALETTE? Light, airy and whimsical – this is how this palette is described. These pastel tones are the new neutrals and focus on being a starting point for introducing more colour into the home using minty greens, zesty lemon and duck-egg blue. There are 12 colours in the range including Streamwood, Light Admirality Grey, Greyology, Chateau, Storm, Antique White, China Blue and Passion.

ave you ever wondered what it takes to design an architecturally-celebrated building? Perhaps, you would like the opportunity to sneak a peek inside an award-winning home? Well, this year’s staging of Sunshine Coast Open House could be the answer. Thirty of the region’s most intriguing buildings are set to throw open their doors and reveal their secrets to the public on Saturday, October 20. This free event gives people the chance to tour a range of public and private buildings, stretching from Caloundra to Pomona. Sunshine Coast Open House is part of the Open House Worldwide family and is an initiative of the Sunshine Coast Council, Noosa Council and the Australian Institute of Architects Sunshine Coast Regional Committee.


Pomona The Majestic Theatre, Pomona Fire and Rescue Station, Pomona Railway Station Gallery



Sunshine Beach House by Teeland Architecture

Located on the northern end of the Sunshine Coast, set in wallum woodland near Lake Weyba, the house is three single-storey blocks with steep skillion roofs opening northwards. A pavilion for living, one a wash house and the third for sleeping. The pavilions are lighter towards the top and folded steel cladding wraps around the base. Gabriel and Elizabeth Poole collaborated to create a place which is empathetic to both the inhabitants and the environment in which the house sits. With sustainable design and high functionality, this home speaks of a specific architectural style, of light, and of openness to the unique surrounding landscape. To book a tour of this property, go to the SCOH website.

LOOKING FOR A TREE CHANGE? The Sunshine Coast hinterland, incorporating the townships of Maleny, Montville and Cooroy, might offer the relaxed lifestyle you are craving.


f you’re looking for better work-life balance, a lower cost of living, a slower pace of life or simply want a change of scenery, have you considered moving to one of the many towns around the Sunshine Coast hinterland? Maybe the buzz of Cooroy, Montville or Maleny’s bustling town centres will entice you to the concept of a homesite with green rolling hills or views to the ocean. Costa Homes reports that thousands of Australians take

“About one in six of the Australians surveyed were unhappy with their lifestyle due to work commute times”

the plunge each year and according to CoreLogic, internal migration to regional Queensland and New South Wales, is the highest it has been in 10 years. A National Broadband Network survey found that the Aussies thinking about a rural relocation typically had two primary motivations including a slower pace of life and a better living environment, and the major attraction being an increased connectivity with fast internet to allow residents to work from home, minimise commute times and increase their quality of living. This has resulted in a shift from the traditional demographic of retirees to people of all ages and a significant increase in the younger age bracket. About one in six of the Australians surveyed were unhappy with their lifestyle due to work commute time. Those who had made a tree change reported being happier with their work-life balance than those that hadn’t moved. The survey also showed the third highest motivator was financial, where 31 per cent of respondents cited cost of living as the main reason to uproot themselves. It’s understandable that the lower cost of property in regional areas is tempting, where buyers get more house and maybe even some land for less than the cost of an apartment in most of Australia’s capitals. It may be time to start exploring and find that perfect patch of land to make your stake and build that dream home to improve your way of life.
