ISSUE 546 April 12, 2019
The annual Discovery Festival is being held at Venue 114 on April 27 and 28, and we have one double pass to give away. This year Discovery, which is presented by Conscious Life Events, will host a hand-picked selection of self-development gurus, wellbeing experts, alternative therapists, holistic healers and more than 20 psychic readers. There is plenty to learn about mindfulness, natural health and yourself. The program also includes music, meditation, seminars, food and plenty of fun.
FROM THE EDITOR
n 12-to 17-year-olds, suicide is now the leading cause of death. This isn’t news, but every time I come across that statistic, it hits me hard. One death by suicide is one too many; the days cut short too soon, a life not yet lived. Mental illness is not an issue to be ignored. Sure, it can be difficult to understand if you have not personally experienced depression or suicide, but it doesn’t mean it’s okay to turn your back on others. There is currently no cure for depression. Instead, sufferers are placed on management plans that may include a combined approach of medication and support services. Sadly, for some people, even this isn’t enough to keep the demons at bay. This is why the Sunshine Coast-based Thompson Institute – one of Australia’s foremost brain institutes – is investing millions of dollars into vital research to combat some of the greatest mental health concerns of our time. The research is groundbreaking, as we reveal in this week’s feature story. You can read the story on page 12. For anyone requiring urgent support, please know that help is available through Beyond Blue, 1300 224 636. Moving on to a lighter topic that is sure to bring a smile to your face, don’t miss this week’s profile story with celebrated comedian Dave Hughes. Hughesy, as he is better known, is heading to the Sunshine Coast later this year. Turn to page 24 for all of the details. We also have our monthly My home section for those in need of a little interior design inspiration. Happy reading, and have a lovely week.

IBISWorld reported that Australians spent almost $210 million on Easter chocolate in 2018.
Fellow chocolate fans, I have to ask – what happened to the traditional Red Tulip Humpty Dumpty Easter egg? I eagerly awaited receiving one of these each year. I’m not entirely sure why it tasted so much better than the everyday chocolate, or why those little chocolate beanies had more appeal than Smarties, but it wasn’t Easter without one of these. Who else has great Easter memories?

The Sunshine Coast is home to a groundbreaking centre that is leading the world in the study and treatment of mental health issues. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

12 My Weekly Preview | April 12, 2019
tepping through the gleaming glass doors of the Thompson Institute at Birtinya, it’s hard to believe this was a derelict building just a few years ago. There are new carpets, fresh white paint, shiny equipment and lots of natural light pouring into its reception areas, research spaces and treatment rooms across three floors. It’s fairly nondescript, as far as decor goes, but the building isn’t there to win any design awards. It’s there to house some of the world’s best minds, who are producing groundbreaking research in the hope of finding cures for some of the greatest mental health dilemmas of our time. One aspect of this groundbreaking research is a trial of the anaesthetic drug ketamine to treat suicidality. Institute director Professor Jim Lagopoulos, a world-renowned scientist who works at the forefront of neuroimaging, first had the idea to use the drug 15 years ago. He is finally able to trial the study at the Thompson Institute and so far the results are nothing short of revolutionary. This is just one reason the centre is now recognised as one of Australia’s foremost brain institutes. The Sunshine Coast Mind and Neuroscience Thompson Institute, as it’s officially known, is part of the University of the Sunshine Coast. It’s named after Maroochydore philanthropists Roy and Nola Thompson, who donated the $7 million building in 2015, followed by a further $3.6 million for MRI imaging equipment. Prof Lagopoulos moved from Sydney three years ago to spearhead the institute. He is editor-in-chief of the peer-reviewed journal Frontiers in Science and editor of World Journal of Neuroscience and has worked at brain institutes around the world. He says the work being done at the Thompson Institute could not be done in a big city.
“I often say to people the focus of what we do here at the institute you could only do on the Sunshine Coast. Big cities are somewhat disconnected. To give you an example, we’ve run ageing and dementia programs and youth mental health programs in Sydney. When you do recruitment for those studies, you don’t get buy-in from the community. It’s a challenge. Here on the Sunshine Coast, it’s more of a community feel. The response we get from people who want to engage with our services is tremendous.” The institute focuses its work around four central themes: the provision of clinical services; advocacy for patients and their carers; conducting groundbreaking research; and education and teaching. “We’re not just educating the next generation of brain scientists, but we’re also educating our community,” says Prof Lagopoulos. “We’ve worked very hard to set up clinical services that were otherwise lacking here on the Sunshine Coast and we work very hard on community engagement and advocacy for patient and their carers. We have been open for business for less than a year. Sure, there are other prestigious institutes around Australia that have been going for a long time, but I would say in a short time we are doing world-class research and we are being acknowledged as world-class.” The National Health and Medical Research Council has designated the Thompson Institute as a centre for research excellence. Australia’s national research evaluation framework, Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA), has given it a top score of five, which indicates it’s well above world standards. On March 28, Federal Minister for Fisher, Andrew Wallace, announced a further $2.5 million investment in the institute, building on the $5 million the Federal Government delivered in 2017, which supported the myweeklypreview.com.au

FEATURE STORY institute’s first two years of operation. Another $2 million in funding has come through the Heller Foundation and the Wilson Foundation, with more support coming from clubs like Rotary. This level of support is indicative of the institute’s high standing and the expectation it will have a major impact on five major areas: youth mental health, suicide, ageing and dementia, PTSD and eating disorders. “When I came here, it was obvious to me these were the five central things here on the Sunshine Coast related to mental health that were under-resourced and under-studied,” says Prof Lagopoulos. With the funding the Thompson Institute has attracted, it is not lacking in top facilities and equipment. The MRI machine donated by the Thompsons is the only one of its kind in the southern hemisphere and can show brain processes happening dynamically right down to a thousandth of a fraction of a hair. This enables researchers to conduct real-time MRI neurofeedback therapies, which have outstanding results with PTSD. There’s also a transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) room, where patients with depression unresponsive to medication are treated. After 30 TMS sessions, they can walk out free of depression for up to two years. The treatment is safe and has no side effects. But there is one area where the institute could do with extra help. “As we become more and more known, we have very good students coming from all over the world as well as local students that

now want to do research with us here,” says Prof Lagopoulos. “A lot of those students need PhD scholarships and we’re lacking support for that. In years gone by, a student would prefer a sandstone university like Sydney University or the University of Queensland, but we’re getting more and more students saying ‘no, I want to do your program at the Thompson Institute’. We could fill 10 scholarships up in a heartbeat.” Prof Lagopoulos says he’s feeling settled in his new life on the Sunshine Coast and is excited about what the future holds. “This is my home now; this is my life and my life revolves around my work,” he says. “I’m very passionate about the work I do and I’m very passionate about helping keep the community healthy. I am driven by finding cures for some of the most vexing mental illnesses we’ve got. The reality is we don’t have cures for schizophrenia, eating disorders, depression. The institute exists for this very reason. We are committed to finding cures. “My dreams and my hopes for the institute in 20 or 30 years’ time are that we are seen as a centre of international excellence for the research we do. “I don’t see any reason why the work we do here will not be acknowledged as much as the Harvards and Yales and Cambridges of the world. We have some of the most sophisticated techniques and equipment here. I see us competing on an international level very soon and I don’t think it will take 20 years. My strong opinion is that we’ll be there in five to 10 years.”
prevention program, developing a digital tool to improve community awareness and understanding of risk factors and conducting research and clinical trials investigating pharmacological interventions. Dr Amanda Clacy (pictured) is a research fellow who recently led the Alliance for Suicide Prevention – Sunshine Coast and has been with the Thompson Institute for just over a year. “The suicide prevention program officially launched at the beginning of March,” says Dr Clacy. “We’ve done a lot of groundwork in consulting with community, ensuring we’re addressing the needs of the Sunshine Coast and bringing on board the people already
THE LONGITUDINAL ADOLESCENT BRAIN STUDY The Longitudinal Adolescent Brain Study (LABS) is a five-year research project designed to better understand the adolescent brain. Using brain imaging and neurocognitive assessments, researchers are working with young people from our community to track changes that occur in the brain from ages 12 to 18. This research will inform the development of evidence-based youth mental health programs. “Seventy-five per cent of all mental illness emerges in adolescence,” says Jim Professor Lagopoulos. “This is a very ambitious program, a longitudinal study to work out what a normal neurodevelopmental trajectory looks like in a young person. “This study has never been conducted anywhere on the planet. It is world-class and will change the way we understand the adolescent brain and what changes occur when someone is developing a mental illness. It will give us the biomarkers that will predict when someone will crash with a mental illness. The sooner we can see when a young person is in trouble and the sooner we can intervene, the better the outcomes.” The study, led by Professor Daniel Hermens (pictured) began in August 2018 with a cohort
working in this space. It means we have a very Sunshine Coast-owned program. “In our first year of clinical trials, we’re looking at novel methods for treating depression and suicidality. Traditional antidepressants aren’t working as effectively. The results in our trials have been absolutely astounding. We’re looking at not only the reduction of symptoms, but also the neurobiological changes. There’s a reduction in symptoms within the first half an hour of treatment, but also their brain chemistry is changing.” The treatment getting the astounding results is a trial of the drug ketamine, which the Thompson Institute is pioneering as a
of 40 – the target is 500 participants. “One of my interests is the onset of early alcohol misuse,” says Prof Hermens. “But we could take any construct, for example binge drinking versus not, and look at how their brain changes over time. We’ll look at young people who experience cyberbullying versus those that don’t. That’s what we do with longitudinal studies.” LABS has a suicide escalation protocol so that if researchers identify a participant is at risk of being suicidal, they are given immediate medical support. “In 12- to 17-year-olds, suicide is now the leading cause of death in Australia,” says Prof Hermens. “We have some responsibility to help young people if our questions have triggered something or caused some distress. “We think participation in a study like this, where there’s non-judgemental, supportive advice about intervention in children as young as 12, will lead to better outcomes and reduce suicide. Out of the 40 we’ve done so far, there have been three where we’ve implemented the suicide escalation protocol and they’ve taken the opportunity to see a clinician. Their parents have said how important that was and how they want their children to stay in the program.” Prof Hermens says a study of this kind, where participants are monitored every four months over a period of five years, would not be feasible in a city. “For the Thompson Institute to be the only neuroinstitute in an emerging region of Australia is crucial. There’s a population of young people who are interested. There’s a sense that contributing to research is important. That is difficult in bigger cities where there are so many competing interests.”
treatment for depression and suicidality. “We use a low dose of oral ketamine and suicidality scores plummet,” says Professor Jim Lagopoulos. “Participants sit in a treatment room after taking it and wait three hours while being monitored. Then they can get in the car and drive home. “In the first week or two, people say they feel sleepier, relaxed, happier, have more clarity of mind and their depressive symptoms dissipate. No one is worse off in terms of side effects. “Some people immediately say ‘wow, I feel better already’ and most are nowhere near suicidal towards the end of the treatment.”

CALOUNDRA RUGBY CLUB HONOURS ANZACS The Caloundra Rugby Union Club will host its annual Anzac Day homage round against the Maroochydore Swans on April 13 at Lighthouse Park, Caloundra. The ceremony will commence with the reading of the Ode, followed by the Last Post performed by a local bugler and the traditional minute of silence. Club President Tony Green says during their recent tour to Malaysia to play in the Borneo International 7s, the tour party paid tribute to the ultimate sacrifice made by Australian and other POWs in Sandakan at the Australian Memorial Park (pictured). Additionally, the day commemorates the passing of Chris ‘Chops’ McLean, a former member of the Australian Navy who passed away while playing rugby for Caloundra. The ANZAC ceremony will start at 3.15pm, prior to the A Grade game at 3.30pm.

FIVE-STAR HOTEL DEVELOPMENT PROPOSED FOR MOOLOOLABA The Sunshine Coast Council has received a development application from Aria Property Group to build a $250-million international standard five-star hotel and residential development on Mooloolaba Esplanade. The proposed development includes a 139-room international hotel and 66 residential apartments over 14 storeys and will be located opposite the Mooloolaba Surf Club. The ground floor will house a mix of retail and hospitality venues as well as a hotel bar and signature restaurant. The building will also include a public rooftop bar and restaurant and pool with ocean views. Greenery is a prominent feature of the artist’s impressions, with plants to be established on a number of levels. The residential mix proposed includes four penthouses, four sub-penthouses, 47 two-bedroom apartments and 10 three-bedroom apartments and a total of 220 carparks. The site has been owned by Rod Forrester since 1991 and a previous application by Aria for the 2588-metres squared site was rejected by the council in 2009. Another application was made in 2016 for a $200-million development, but Aria requested the council defer its decision after they could not reach an agreement over a proposed on-site public carpark. The latest proposal, which was lodged last Friday, is a code-assessable application.

AURA’S SECOND SUBURB UNVEILED The second suburb at Stockland’s $5-billion Aura community on the Sunshine Coast is now open to the public, with the first roads and streets including a 120-metre bridge into the residential precinct now completed. Aura Central will be the future heart of Aura and will feature a future 90-hectare City Centre, the People’s Place with a South Bank-style parkland, and a range of sporting and education facilities as well as the residential precinct which is currently under construction. So far, around 10 kilometres of cycling and walking paths have been created in Aura Central, with eight kilometres of roads constructed, 21 kilometres of water and sewer mains installed and more than 180,000 plants now growing. Construction on Aura Central’s first homes is set to begin in the coming weeks and the first residents at Aura Central are expected to move in mid-year. In addition, a 7.5-hectare sports park featuring four rectangular sports fields, four netball courts, and a clubhouse is anticipated to be delivered by the middle of next year. Highlights of Aura Central, which is expected to eventually deliver 6000 ongoing jobs as part of an anticipated 20,000 long-term positions at Aura, include a future urban university, two proposed public primary schools and two proposed private schools. myweeklypreview.com.au

BEERWAH’S BEST Well-travelled rugby league player Jordan Meads is now happy to call the Sunshine Coast home. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
rowing up in the rugby union heartland of Wellington in New Zealand, Jordan Meads had strong aspirations to become an All Black. The Beerwah Bulldogs A-grader recalls how he used to spend “every spare second” running around pretending to be famous footy player Christian Cullen, and how his parents would have to take his All Blacks jersey off him while he slept as he wore it all the time. The father-of-two made the transition to rugby league where he reached the professional ranks and was head-hunted by international clubs. He is now preparing to travel to London next month to represent the Greek Rugby League Association and captain the team in the Greece v Norway Rugby League World Cup qualifying match. Mr Meads says he holds his Greek heritage close to his heart. His mother is Greek and his grandparents, who have lived in New Zealand for almost 40 years, migrated from Greece as a result of WWII. “I have a tradition that before every international game, I send my grandparents a letter and thank them for the sacrifices they made so that I could live the life I live and play the game I love,’’ he tells My Weekly Preview. “As soon as I finish writing the letter, I know it’s game time.” He admits when he signed his first professional contract with the New Zealand Warriors, there was a box at the bottom of the form that asks which countries players qualify to represent and he wrote down Greece “more as a joke than anything else”. “Soon after that, I remember getting a call from the general manager of the Greek Rugby
Jordan Meads in action (above) and (right) with wife Courtney League Association asking if I wanted to be part of the squad. At the time we had a strong foundation of a team – New South Wales State of Origin five-eighth Braith Anasta, Sydney Roosters prop Michael Korkidas and Penrith Panthers head coach Steve Georgallis were all there.” “Over time, those players have retired, however it was that core group that inspired the next generation of Greek-heritage players to put their hand up. We now have hundreds of players vying for a spot in our team – it’s a good problem to have leading into the World Cup. No one thought we would be a game or two away from making a World Cup, however we have worked really hard over the past four years and the exposure is helping us generate a heap of support. Greeks are passionate about anything Greek, so the support we have received to date has been unreal.” Mr Meads spent two years with the New

offers to head back overseas to play at a professional level, he is content with the Bulldogs and being a heritage player in the Greek Rugby League Association, which means he can compete with the Greek team while continuing to reside in Australia. The Beerwah Hotel has sponsored Mr Meads so he can make the trip to London to help the team win a spot in the World Cup. “I make a conscious effort to call or Skype a couple of times a week to see how [the rest of the team] are going and catch up on their preparation,” he says. “They get up in the middle of the night to watch every NRL game and they idolise the sport more than anyone I have ever seen. There is no secret that the success of our program is the development of Rugby League in Greece – the World Cup is just a cherry on top.”

Zealand Warriors, and was part of the Under-20s squad that won the 2011 grand final against the North Queensland Cowboys. He then received a full-time professional contract in France at Sporting Olympique Avignon, followed by a year in England with the Newcastle Thunder before an offer from the Sunshine Coast Falcons came up and he relocated to the Coast five years ago. He recently signed with the Beerwah Bulldogs to complete in the SCRL A-Grade competition. Bulldogs president Lee Robertson says Mr Meads is considered “the marquee player on the Sunshine Coast”. “We were very lucky to coax him to Beerwah,” he adds. “He is about promoting the game at all levels and with all age groups. He has a good attitude and this really does speak volumes about him as an individual.” Although Mr Meads continues to field

One of the nation’s most popular stand-up comedians, Dave Hughes, is bringing his latest show to the Coast. He talks to My Weekly Preview about family, hecklers and the preoccupation far too many people have with his hair. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
hen it comes to being heckled, Dave Hughes has heard just about every insult you can think of during his long and successful career. From taking on the best of the best in stand-up comedy on an international scale to smashing drive-time radio ratings with Hit Network’s Hughesy & Kate and hosting his own television series Hughesy, We Have A Problem, in a typical day he comes across a number of critics – and not all of their opinions are positive. Far from letting it weigh him down, Mr Hughes says he has mastered the ability to turn these disgruntled opinions into comedic fodder to fuel his passion for entertaining. In fact, his latest national comedy tour Hairy, which is on its way to The Events Centre in Caloundra on May 2, is based largely on the criticism he has received for, of all things, his hair. “I’ve been growing my hair since last year and I get so many comments about it,” he tells My Weekly Preview. “It’s like when you get into your later forties and start to make a change in your appearance it really freaks people out. It’s like the world they knew, Dave Hughes’ short-hair world, is no longer the world they are living in and they are not happy about it. “Some say I’m going through manopause and others just mock me. But if you go back to my first appearance on network TV on Hey Hey It’s Saturday back in 1997, I was in my mid-twenties and I had a mop of hair. For some reason I decided to cut that off one day. So it’s like I’ve gone back to the age of 25.” Mr Hughes says one of his biggest hairstyle supporters is radio co-host Kate Langbroek, despite one listener posting a side-by-side photo of Hughesy alongside Alice, the housekeeper from ’70s TV show The Brady Bunch. “Anyone who criticises you ends up being material. “People insulting you in the street give you comedy; people complementing you don’t give you any comedy. So while at the time, being insulted isn’t nice, it becomes the basis of your future act, which is a blessing really. “I still get down in the dumps with some of the more intense criticism, but I can turn it around, basically, and make it into a positive.” Despite wielding an innate power to make audiences double over with laughter with his dead-pan delivery, Mr Hughes admits he was never an extrovert as a child. “I wasn’t the most popular kid in school, but whenever
24 My Weekly Preview | April 12, 2019
I was able to get on stage, whether it was to get a trophy for footy or to perform in school camp plays, I was able to make people laugh. For whatever reason, I had a knack for it and it got into my blood, I suppose,” he says. “I didn’t dare to dream that it could be a career, but at the same time, I couldn’t shake it and spent ages focusing on my IT or business degree – well, my attempts at them anyways – but then comedy eventually won over.” Earlier this year, he opened up about his battle with drugs and alcohol that led him to spiral out of control after dropping out of his second university degree. “At a private level, I thought I was a loser and wondered
if I would ever make a success of myself and began beating myself up, which is ridiculous,” he says. “I’ve been sober for 26 years – no drugs or alcohol – and while I’m not somebody to rave on about it, I’ll talk about it if asked. Alcohol and drugs can be a downward spiral that you can’t get out of and it took a lot for me to get my head back and take control of my emotions. “I’d stopped [by the time I started stand-up] and I do wonder whether I would have had the fortitude or mental strength to start stand-up comedy because it’s stressful. “I was certainly wildly inconsistent when I first started. Some nights I’d slay them and other nights the whole room was just staring at you and it’s a tricky thing to deal with emotionally. “I wouldn’t have coped if still drinking and doing drugs.” Of all of the television roles he’s had, from The Project to Before The Game and hosting the Logie Awards a record four times, Mr Hughes says comedy is his biggest love, with just one exception. His family – wife Holly and their three children Rafferty, Sadie and Tess. “I never want to get off the road,” he says. “I love the stand-up comedy more than anything and the biggest joy I have is being on stage in front of a live audience. The compromise is getting the earliest flight home you can. If I can get a late flight out on a Saturday night, sacrificing sleep to get home as early as possible, it’s worth it so your wife doesn’t stop you touring.” And if you thought strangers were tough on him, Mr Hughes gets heckled just as much at home by his offspring. “Because I’m a comedian, they see me as a clown and feel like they can mock me mercilessly, basically,” he says. “My seven-year-old was singing a song about my man boobs this morning and I try to tell them that they should show some respect. I’ve got to get fear into them at some point, but I’m too soft.” Mr Hughes says while he might be a bit of a push-over, he wants to encourage his children to learn how to laugh rather than take life too seriously. “It’s something I have to remind myself at the same time,” he admits. “But it’s all ridiculous, so just relax.”

MEETING OF A LIFETIME My Weekly Preview plays a small part in making one of Ken Chadwick’s dreams come true. WORDS: Leigh g Robshaw.
reams do come true, according to Marcoola resident Ken Chadwick OAM. The 91-year-old director of the Sunshine Coast Concert Band was delighted to have the opportunity to meet one of his heroes, Sir Peter Cosgrove, at a lunch to honour Queensland awards and honours recipients in Brisbane on April 1. Not only did Mr Chadwick dine with the Governor-General and Lady Cosgrove, but he was also presented with the GovernorGeneral’s Medal for his outstanding service to the Sunshine Coast community. The way this meeting came about is heart-warming story. In October 2018, My Weekly Preview published a Quick Chat piece on Mr Chadwick (pictured right), in which he revealed the three people he’d most like to have dinner with were a friend of 79 years, Peter Lambert, along with Nelson Mandela and Sir Peter Cosgrove. Buderim resident Rod McKinnon is a retired military officer who knows Mr Chadwick through their mutual involvement in the Buderim Anzac Day commemoration. A former colonel, Mr McKinnon worked with Peter Cosgrove in the late ’80s and early ’90s. Upon reading

To top off one of the most memorable days of Mr Chadwick’s life, as the group gathered for a photograph after lunch, Sir Cosgrove presented him with the GovernorGeneral’s Medal. “I am 91 years old now and this was an occasion I will never forget,” says Mr Chadwick. “It was a wonderful day, which started with a small article five months previously. This act of Rod’s I find to be a beautiful gesture of kindness, selflessness and love and I’m forever indebted to him. It could have been an April Fool’s joke, but it certainly was not.”

A SOULFUL CONNECTION
FREE TO BE A JERK?
Sami Muirhead meets a jewellery designer, and walks away from the meeting a whole lot wiser.
Kyle Kimball reflects on the rights and responsibilities of free speech and why we need to be guided by strong leaders.
door literally opened this week that gave me some powerful knowledge. I had travelled to Brisbane to hear Samantha Wills speak about why she has closed down her $10 million jewellery line. Samantha was the ultimate success story – she had gone from making jewellery on her dining room table to sell at markets, to being the darling Aussie living in New York with fabulous hair and a breathtaking apartment. She was on the labels of bottles of booze and the star of countless ads and started an organisation to help empower women. She seemed to have it all. Except she did not. The glamazon stood in front of hundreds of women and humbly told us of her ups and downs behind the scenes with her business life and the lessons she has learned. The whole room gasped as she told us her boyfriend of three years had cheated on her. When Samantha asked him how long the affair had been going on he told her he had cheated on her with eight women. The jewellery designer went to a dark place for a long time where she doubted everything she thought she knew. She staggered through life while keeping up her appearance as the golden girl. “I could barely form a sentence and my friends would come over and force me out of bed while they changed my sheets before I flopped back into bed,” she says. “I would just sit on the floor of the shower crying and just trying to breathe. The pressure of grief
along with keeping a business going can feel overwhelming. So, there I was in grief. It felt too dark and murky but if we do not touch the bottom, we do not feel the entirety of it all. In the dark we truly see ourselves.” After much soul searching, she decided it was time for a new chapter. The new chapter is sharing her wisdom. The night I travelled to Brisbane in the pouring rain to hear her speak I arrived at the golf club to find myself lost. I opened a door to the wrong building for an elegant slip of a goddess to run past me out of the rain. As she swept past, I exclaimed, “My God! You are Samantha Wills!” She turned and thanked me for coming to listen to her speak. I was in a panic we were late, but Samantha was calm as we walked in the rain to find the room where the function was being held. I was star struck and giddy as we came to an actual crossroad and Samantha turned to me and said, “I talk a lot about crossroads in your life tonight so it is really interesting we are standing at one.” She gave me a warm hug and set fire to a little flame inside me that urged me to trust my intuition and to embrace the tough times as there is a higher plan for us all. I leave you with a quote from Samantha: “The universe only ever has three answers – 1. yes, 2. not right now, 3. something better is in store for you.” Live a life without fear and embrace your crossroads.
Freedom of speech means freedom for those who you despise, and freedom to express the most despicable views. It also means that the government cannot pick and choose which expressions to authorise and to prevent. Alan Dershowitz
he horrific mass murder in Christchurch last month is predictably becoming something of a lightning rod for all the nut jobs and extremists looking for their 15 minutes of fame. And that is despite the best efforts of the New Zealand government to control the narrative and take the oxygen from the fire. That politicians seek to aggrandise themselves and politicise any debate over ‘who is to blame’, only serves to divide the community more. At a time when those divisions need to be healed more than ever. Jacinda Ardern’s efforts aside, it is both embarrassing and frightening to witness the lack of leadership in our nation. One cannot open a newspaper, login online or even sit at the local bar without reading, seeing or hearing countless examples of myriad divides between all members of society. Right and left, Christian or Muslim, atheist or religious, man versus woman. It is interminable. But perhaps more frightening is the concerted efforts by some to silence this social discourse. Laws prohibiting not just
‘hate’ speech, but which seek to criminalise behaviour that merely causes offence, is being promoted around the world. There is a difference between debate and actual division. The idea that the civic behaviour of society can be regulated by laws is just plain nonsense. Our jails are testament to that (speeding fine, anyone?). Worse, these laws are the most egregious example of our leaders abdicating their responsibility for leading, for guiding our community.
“There is a difference between debate and actual division” You cannot govern the differences between people. Laws suppressing the freedom to express one’s views, and thus one’s individuality and own identity, will only ever serve to create true division. The ‘othering’ that flows from division, springing from the pressure of suppression of ideas and identity, is the foundation of tyranny throughout history. But the freedom to say and think what one feels is not a freedom that can be enjoyed in isolation. It carries with it a responsibility. And that is that despite one’s views, don’t be a jerk. This is something our leaders could do well to remember.

COUPLES WITH KIDS TOP TAX WINNERS Who are the winners and losers in the coalition’s latest budget? We find out. WORDS: Marnie Banger and Daniel McCulloch, AAP.
ustralian couples (with children) earning mid-range or high incomes would be the biggest winners from tax changes in the latest federal budget, according to new modelling. Five metropolitan electorates based in Sydney will also receive the greatest overall benefit when the staged reforms are complete. By contrast, constituents in a swag of regional seats will receive much more modest tax gains. Nationals deputy leader Bridget McKenzie denied her government’s tax package exacerbated the economic divide that exists between city and country. “We have low- and medium-income levels right across regional Australia,” she told ABC Radio National. “Our nurses, our tradies, our public school teachers out in regional Australia will benefit significantly from our government’s income tax cuts.” The assessment comes from the University of Canberra’s National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling (NATSEM). Under its analysis, a single person with a
mid-range income would have an extra $405 in disposable income in 2019, $413 more in 2022 and $505 extra in 2024. A couple with children, in the same income bracket, would have $513 more in disposable cash in 2019, $650 in 2022 and $1714 in 2024. The highest-earning couples with children would have $4573 extra to spend each year by 2024. Men are broadly set to get more benefit from the tax relief than women. By age group, Australians aged between 26 and 35 are set to be the biggest beneficiaries. A man in that age group will have $245 in extra disposable income per year once the 2019 changes kick in, while a woman will have $213. For people aged 65 or older, that benefit drops down to $83 for men and $81 for women. By 2024, the electorates set to benefit most from the changes will be Wentworth, North Sydney, Warringah, Sydney and Grayndler – all in metropolitan Sydney. Those to benefit least would be Spence in
Adelaide’s outer north, Hinkler in Queensland, Page and Lyne in New South Wales and Lyons in Tasmania. Ultimately, the tax and transfer measures in the budget will lead to a 0.2 per cent drop in Australia’s poverty rate, NATSEM found. But it says a $75 a week increase to Newstart would reduce poverty by 0.8 per cent. In Treasurer Josh Frydenberg’s first budget, released on Tuesday last week, the government promised to more than double a tax offset for Australians earning up to $126,000. It says that means a single-income family will keep an extra $1000 from tax time this year. The government also wants to lower the 32.5 per cent tax rate to 30 per cent from mid-2024.
IN HIS WORDS Josh Frydengerg, Treasurer
“For the first time in 12 years, our nation is again paying its own way. Growth is higher. There are a record number of Australians with a job. School and hospital funding are at record levels. But Australia does face some serious challenges. The global economy is slowing. Families face cost-of-living pressures. And every one of us wants to see wages growing faster. The answer is a stronger and more competitive economy, with lower taxes and more jobs. The government is more than doubling the low- and middle-income tax offset from 2018-19. Taxpayers earning up to $126,000 a year — including teachers, tradies and nurses — will receive a tax cut.”
THE 2019 FEDERAL BUDGET AT A GLANCE KEY FORECASTS
• Budget surplus – $7.1 billion • Economic growth – 2.75 per cent • Unemployment – 5 per cent • Inflation – 2.25 per cent
WINNERS AND LOSERS IN THE 2019 BUDGET WINNERS
Taxpayers – $158 billion of additional tax relief for those earning up to $126,000 a year. Older energy users – $285 million to help almost four million Australian pensioners and others cover their energy bills. Job seekers – 80,000 new apprenticeships announced and extra 1.25 million jobs over the next five years. Small business – Instant asset write-off increased to $30,000 and expanded to businesses with a turnover of up to $50 million. The sick – $80 billion for better access to life-changing equipment, services and medicines. Schools – $300 billion for upgrades to libraries, classrooms and play equipment. LOSERS
Big banks – $600 million boost for financial regulators ASIC and APRA to deal with banking royal commission fallout. Terrorists – $570 million boost for national security agencies and $328 million to fund prevention, response and recovery initiatives. Tax and welfare cheats – The Tax Office and other agencies are to crack down on welfare cheats and tax dodging. Migrants – The migration cap to be reduced to 160,000 from 190,000. Source: AAP

or many, a holiday means driving to the airport and hopping on a plane. Four billion of us around the world took a flight in 2017, more than ever before. But here in Australia, we are the lucky ones; we don’t need to fly away. Pledge to spend your dollars at home in 2019, and do your bit to reduce the carbon footprint of long-haul air travel.

Beloved institutions have undergone a revamp, with the area attracting celebrities and Sydney seachangers in droves. With gorgeous beaches, pretty waterways and plenty of national park to get lost in, who could blame them? The Woy Woy Fisherman’s Wharf, once a fishmonger serving 300 parcels of fish and chips a day, has just had a complete refurb. A sleek glass-walled restaurant now serves kingfish sashimi, spicy tomato pippies and Singaporeanstyle blue swimmer crab alongside classic battered fish, calamari and scallops. Just next door, at the newly renovated Bayview Hotel, restaurateur Rupert Noffs and chef Matty Bennett have arrived from Manhattan.

BUSINESS & FINANCE Having greater confidence that bank lending practices were improving, APRA announced in December 2018 that it would remove rules restricting interest-only lending to 30 per cent of new loans. This follows a decision earlier in 2018 to also remove restrictions that capped the growth of investor loans to 10 per cent. This may alleviate some of the pressure on banks to further compress lending, although we doubt it will result in a substantial acceleration in credit growth – particularly to interest-only lending or investors. APRA has made clear, for example, that “interest-only mortgages remain a higher risk form of lending and

THE LOWDOWN ON HOUSING IN 2019
n improvement in auction clearance rates, the unwinding of macro-prudential restrictions and prospects for interest rate cuts are giving some hope of a recovery in the housing market. However, for several reasons we find it difficult to extrapolate more confidence from these developments. All in all, we forecast a further six per cent decline in house prices in 2019 (versus 2018). Weekly auction clearance rates provide a regular gauge of sentiment in the housing market. Average monthly auction clearance rates have risen from 45 per cent in December to 54 per cent this month, although they are still well below clearance rates experienced during the same period last year, which were averaging around 65 per cent. I caution against extrapolating these trends to the rest of the year, however, given the seasonality in the figures. Clearance rates tend be proportionally stronger around the March to April period, and drift lower into mid-year. Using these seasonal trends would suggest that clearance rates could again turn lower in coming weeks and could remain below 50 per cent throughout 2019. Bear in mind, too, that auctions tend to be more common in Sydney and Melbourne, but nationally they are a small share of total housing turnover (10 per cent in 2018) and so are not a comprehensive measure of broader market dynamics. That said, in recent years there has been a strengthening relationship between changes in annual clearance rates and annual house price growth.

APRA expects that lenders will maintain prudent internal risk limits on interest-only lending”. So far, unwinding these restrictions has had no noticeable benefit, with investor loan growth easing. We suspect, too, that scrutiny from the Royal Commission and the upcoming federal election will continue to constrain the ability of banks to chase growth. Following speeches from the RBA and the soft December quarter GDP update, the odds of a rate cut this year are firming. We believe there could be up to two rate cuts in the second half of 2019. In our view, however, the banks are unlikely to pass all of this on to borrowers given the margin pressures they are facing.

Just as the popularity of colours and designs change over the years, so too do flooring trends. Of course, updating the floors in your home can be a costly exercise. When it comes to selecting the right product, it’s important to invest in a material that is not only popular, but long-lasting. Interior designer and Carpet Court ambassador Darren Palmer says two trends that will go the distance include the Moroccan and botanical looks – both of which, he says, work beautifully in Australian homes.
We love these two products as they are perfectly suited to the botanical interior trend. Potted Grand Split Philio, Domayne, $48. Seagrass stool, $59.95, Manawee Garden Centre.

style tips With Darren Palmer
Premium Oak in Arctic White from Carpet Court Beautiful botanicals Australians love indoor-outdoor living and the botanical trend translates well into our homes. “The key to making this look work is not to overfill the space – you want it to feel light and airy,” Mr Palmer says. “Choose one or two statement features, such as an oversized leaf-print wallpaper across one wall or a forest green velvet sofa. Then, add in shelves and accessories in woven rattan and blonde timber, white plantation shutters and plenty of greenery. “Finish off with touches of gold for a modern-luxe feel.” PRODUCT TIP: Mr Palmer says a pale timber floor with cool undertones such as Carpet Court’s Premium Oak in Arctic White creates a soft, easy-to-live foundation for this look and contrasts beautifully with forest greens.
TEXTURED APPEAL: To add texture to your interior, consider a chunky felted loop pile carpet in this season’s on-trend colours – charcoal, silvery-grey or sand.
Carpet Court’s Dreamtime carpet in Clay Go Moroccan Mr Palmer says the Moroccan look is exotic and luxurious. “Think bold brights, clashing patterns and earthy, rugged textures. With its bohemian edge, this look brings a sense of energy yet warmth to a space,’’ he says. “When you’re decorating a room, it’s always a good idea to start with the floor. It’s one of the largest expanses of space in a home and will set the tone for the rest of your furnishings. The Moroccan look has warm, spicy undertones and an earthy feel, so seek out flooring in a warm neutral shade with plenty of texture. “Complete the look with a medley of bright, patterned rugs and cushions, buffed leather accessories, decorative pendants and woven wall hangings.” PRODUCT TIP: Mr Palmer suggests Dreamtime high-low loop pile carpet or Antille Twist cut pile twist carpet as they are both textured.
FAMILY FRIENDLY: If you have children or pets, a level loop-pile carpet in a mid-tone neutral with some flecks of colour will be the most hardwearing and forgiving. FIBRE SMARTS: Wool carpet has a luxurious, natural appeal, but solution-dyed nylon is a great choice if you’re looking for a soft carpet with superior fade and stain-resistance for a sunny room or a home with kids. GRAB A SAMPLE: Carpet and hard flooring colours will look different from the showroom once you get them home. To work out whether a colour or timber finish is right for your interior, take a sample home and look at it at different times of day and under various light conditions. CONSIDER YOUR OPTIONS: Love the look of timber but want something low-maintenance and more affordable? Why not consider timber-look vinyl planks or laminate, which give you the appearance of real wood for less and can often be used in wet rooms such as bathrooms and laundries. THE TOUCH TEST: To assess how soft a carpet will feel underfoot, don’t just feel it with your hands – slip off your shoes and walk on it.

New Girl co-star Lamorne Morris, who is set to appear on the silver screen later this year in a Danny Boyle-directed musical comedy, has celebrated his ongoing professional success with the $3.1 million purchase of a luxury home in the rolling hills of Tarzana, at the far western edge of Los Angeles. We are pretty sure that Morris – known for his role as the adorable Winston in New Girl – will be comfortable in his new abode. The newly constructed villa has five bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms in 540 square metres. Modern-minded, high-tech interiors feature solid wood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows and a comprehensive home automation system with surround-sound speakers throughout. A double-height foyer leads to a sitting room with tiled fireplace, and the formal dining area includes a wine storage closet encased in floor-to-ceiling smoked glass. The double-island kitchen is open to both an ample family room and cosy, window-lined breakfast nook that looks out over the swimming pool. There’s a state-ofthe-art media room with projection system on the main floor while second-floor bedrooms are arranged around a den with built-in media equipment.

SOLBAR CELEBRATES Bootleg Rascal return to headline the Solbar’s eighth birthday celebrations.
here’s a party gearing up unlike anything Solbar has ever seen before as the music venue celebrates its eighth birthday. Nine live acts will perform over Easter Saturday and Sunday, with genre-blurring Sydney band Bootleg Rascal (pictured) raising the roof as headliners on Saturday with support from Brisbane’s indie dubsters, Hemingway. Coast newcomers The Fins will be getting the party started in the lounge bar and the fun will continue into the wee hours with world champion turntablist, New York’s DJ Total Eclipse. “Bootleg Rascal packed the place last time they were in town, and that was a Thursday, so we know people are going to be absolutely stoked to get to party with them again,” Solbar’s Melissa O’Bryan says.
Three Restaurant Bar and Grill the home of the famous Chocolate Bomb that went viral on social media, has closed its doors at Dicky Beach… but reopened them in a brand-new location in Caloundra’s main street. The flame-grilled steaks and house favourite rack of ribs are back better than ever, along with a host of new menu options to try in Bulcock Street.
Sunday promises to keep the party going with a great line-up of live acts from 5pm. The main event is popular Brisbane band Bugs, with support bands The Bonnie Doons and Dorah Jacson getting things warmed up in Solbar’s band room. In the lounge bar, some of the Coast’s favourite rockers will be unplugging their amps to play stripped-back acoustic versions of their tunes, including Big Whoops and The Unknowns. IN THE Your Mates will create a custombuilt Larry Lounge, where punters can sample a range of Your Mates’ best beers, play games, win merch, and chat beer with the brewery crew.

Award-winning performer Darren Coggan returns to his country roots with Like A Rhinestone Cowboy, delivering the vocal authenticity and guitar prowess of the great Glen Campbell. In a personal reflection, Mr Coogan respectfully honours the indelible voice behind the golden hits of the ’60s and 70s. During a career that spanned six decades, Mr Campbell sold more than 45 million records. His guitar touched the landmark recordings of his time. That’s his rhythm line on Frank Sinatra’s Strangers in
THE GLOVEMAKER Author: Ann Weisgarber Publisher: Pan Macmillan RRP: $29.99 Reviewer: Jessica Kumar
Don’t judge a book by its cover. Or so they say. Well, a book about a small Mormon community in Utah, set in the winter of 1888 wouldn’t normally pique my interest, so I am grateful Ann Weisgarber’s book, The Glovemaker, has a cute front cover.
Open all Easter Weekend!
the Night, he played bubble-gum riffs for the Monkees, his guitar rings out on the Viva Las Vegas soundtrack album by Elvis Presley and his guitar playing grooved on the Beach Boys’ landmark album Pet Sounds. The legacy he leaves behind is expansive, songs the whole world sang along with, and they are remarkably recreated live by Mr Coggan. See Like a Rhinestone Cowboy at The Events Centre, Caloundra on June 7 from 8pm. Tickets are available at theeventscentre.com.au.

This is historical fiction at its best. While the story is historically accurate, it doesn’t feel fact heavy. This novel encourages you to get to know the characters, which is wonderful because they are so specific to the time, place and the Mormon faith. As I read Weisgarber’s words, I could feel the tension her characters were experiencing, the push and pull felt by people wanting to stay true to their faith, while distancing themselves from the strict, hierarchical dogma of the church. This is a story of morality, and the decisions people make when forced into a corner. Weisgarber perfectly illustrates the moral anxiety her characters experience and more than once I found myself holding my breath as they wrestled with a decision.

This week’s dynamic stars encourage you to be proudly proactive as you set challenging goals and actively pursue them. Not sure how to do that? Try rubbing shoulders with your kickass Aries friends … they’ll show you how to crank up your motivation.
With Mars charging through your sign, positive action leads to dynamic success. Plus, Mercury shifts into your networking zone on Wednesday, so don’t underestimate the amazing contacts you have amongst your extended peer group.
Mercury, Venus and the full moon are activating your career zone, so it’s time to show others what you are capable of. Lucky opportunities are around, but you must be quick to grab them or they will pass you by.

It’s all about love and lust this week as the planets galvanise your partnership and intimacy zones. If you are attached, make sure you plan something suitably romantic. Single? You won’t find your soul mate if you sit at home sulking about being solo.
Venus and Jupiter stimulate your urge to splurge on extravagant purchases that you don’t really need, so perhaps it would be best to avoid shopping sprees. Friday’s full moon favours meditation and investigation as you solve a stubborn problem.

Imagination and intuition are heightened on Monday when you tap into your subconscious and receive important guidance. The secret to success this week is communication as the planets encourage you to look, listen and learn from those around you.
This week’s sparky stars encourage you to be enthusiastic about all the opportunities that are around as you explore, experiment and leap through life with a strong work ethic and an extra dose of confidence.

SUNSHINE COAST PROPERTY COUNCIL COMMITTEE HITS THE GROUND RUNNING A new committee is dedicated to ensuring development on the Sunshine Coast is managed well. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane. about the vision and potential opportunities within the CBD development. “We are keen to look at other components of the Sunshine Coast property industry to gain a greater understanding of the risks and opportunities both current and future planning schemes offer and make ourselves available to consult on the key potential opportunities for future sustained growth on the Coast – one of our primary focuses will be on growth management,” he says. This will be in addition to the traditional role of Property Council members to invest in, design, build and manage places that matter from homes to retirement villages, shopping centres, office buildings, industrial areas, education, research and health precincts, tourism and hospitality venues and more.
he Property Council of Australia only recently announced the members of its Sunshine Coast Committee for the 2019–2020 term, but the group is already taking proactive action to connect with regional stakeholders to establish stronger lines of communication. RPS general manager Brad Williams is the new Sunshine Coast chair and says the committee’s priorities will be to ensure that the Sunshine Coast is best positioned to manage our future growth while safeguarding our region’s affordability and lifestyle. “We’re keen to continue to work with policymakers to advocate on key infrastructure priorities for the region and remove red tape hurdles for the local industry,” he says. This was seconded by deputy chair Anthony Demiris from AVID Property Group, who says the committee is working towards having a stronger voice when it comes to advocating for the residential, industrial and commercial property industries with the Sunshine Coast Council. The property sector accounts for nearly 17 per cent of all full-time jobs in the Sunshine Coast local government area. While in the Noosa Shire, it accounts for 18 per cent. Across the two local government areas, the property sector directly contributes $1.2 billion in wages annually. “The industry represents a significant component of the region’s GDP and employment base,” Mr Demiris says. “There is a heavy investment in infrastructure projects on the Sunshine Coast and when you combine that with organic interstate and international migration, the region is at a point now where we need to start focusing our efforts in making sure we create ongoing and sustainable jobs and the dwellings to match.
“Historically, the Coast has been more tourism-based and that’s evolving. The Coast is becoming more sophisticated…” Anthony Demiris
“Historically, the Coast has been more tourism-based and that’s evolving. The Coast is becoming more sophisticated through the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, increased access through the airport expansion, the submarine cable and the Maroochydore CBD and as these evolve, we have to ensure we continue to deliver housing to support the anticipated growth in jobs and population.” Mr Demiris says prior to the SCUH project and large investment in the Bruce Highway upgrade, the region hadn’t seen substantial investment for some time. “Of course, the region is not sustained by these catalytic infrastructure investments alone, it is and needs to continue to be, supported by local industries and with the amount of development that is to go on at Harmony and also down at Aura, the residential construction industry is positioned to continue to enjoy a period of sustained prosperity,” he says. Mr Demiris says the PCA committee has already reached out to engage with the council and SunCentral to understand more

with MWP’s man in the water
Okay, tell me you guys all scored on the weekend and earlier in the week? Finally, some waves with push and no 30-knot winds attached. I did witness some inexperienced carnage, so check conditions to make sure you can handle it as someone will not always be there to help. Hopefully, this might be a good sign for the upcoming winter swell? If you remember, we got skunked last year. Fingers crossed and as Neil Young says: “Keep on rockin’ in the free world.” My Weekly Preview (“MWP”) is locally owned by Sunshine Coast Alliance Publishing Ltd ACN 124 476 142 and is published by 20/20 Publishing Pty Ltd ACN 131 089 793 (the “Publisher”).
