THE FIRST WORD
FROM THE EDITOR

rocery shopping has become an interesting task in recent weeks. From trying to source toilet paper (if anyone has the secret to tracking some down, please let me know!) to stocking up on pasta, what was once a routine exercise has become somewhat challenging. Like everyone else, we too are unsure how the current situation is going to evolve. For now, we are holding steady, focusing on the positives in our lives and continuing to put tasty, nutritious meals on our families’ plates. And, if we can save a dollar or two while doing it, all the better.

Giving back Anne Nioa is STEPS Autism Treehouseâ€™s charity manager. Her daughter Ariana was one of the first graduates of STEPS Pathways College. She also has a son, Jackson, who works in Brisbane.

was a local councillor in Maryborough from 2004 to 2012 and I lived there all my life, so the move to the Sunshine Coast was a very big one. Iâ€™d lost my entire foundation at the ripe old age of 56. My daughter Ariana has Down syndrome and I was absolutely focused on getting her into the first cohort for the STEPS Pathways College. She joined the first intake in May 2017, which was very exciting for everyone. She graduated two years later and has since moved to independent living with some support. When this role came up, I felt it was my opportunity to do something really structured about giving back to the organisation, which has changed her life and mine. Sheâ€™s always been relatively outgoing but her level of independence grew enormously and her dependence on me really started to taper off. Sheâ€™s sharing an apartment with a friend and sheâ€™s working at Caloundra RSL. Ariana had to be born by caesarean section and thatâ€™s when we found out she had Down syndrome. It was a very blunt
Anne Nioa from STEPS Autism Treehouse with her daughter Ariana introduction to the world of disability. We didnâ€™t talk about mental health back then like we do now, or the difficulties families experience when they are presented with a little bundle of joy that is not the same as everyone elseâ€™s little bundle of joy. When the kids were six and three, my husband passed away at the age of 37 from bowel cancer. I didnâ€™t really have time to grieve, because we had an import company and two small children. But as they say, what doesnâ€™t kill you makes you stronger. I ran the company myself until I was one year into council. I wanted to go into council because I had the altruistic idea that I could make a

difference. I laughed when I was asked because I thought, thatâ€™s not what people like me do. I now realise itâ€™s exactly what people like me need to be involved with. I would probably still have been in council but I was hit by a car in 2010. It was a near-fatal accident. A truck hit me head-on when I was coming back from a meeting in Hervey Bay and they really donâ€™t know how I survived. It took me over a year to recover and I still have pain. You just have to get on with it. I canâ€™t say that every day I feel super-positive, but I feel very blessed to be here and to be able to be continuing my life and seeing my children grow up, because Ari has had
some very serious health problems. She was in hospital on and off for the first year of her life. In my last year of council, we were at the Australia Day citizenship ceremony and she was feeling a bit off. She had a massive clot to her frontal lobe and had a massive stroke. She was in hospital for three weeks and couldnâ€™t go to school for six months. I finished at council and we went and lived in Ubud in Bali for three months, just chilling and getting her back to health. Itâ€™s one of my favourite places in the world and I would live there for six months of the year if I could. Thatâ€™s still a pipe dream for me, somewhere along the line. I love the Indonesian people; I think theyâ€™re a very special race of people. Theyâ€™re very kind. Travel is my passion. Two weeks after Ari went into STEPS Pathways College, they said, â€œwe donâ€™t want you here all the time, we want some separationâ€?, so I went to Morocco. It had been on my bucket list for many years and I adored every second I spent there. I love India, I love Asia, I love China. I had an imports business so Iâ€™ve been to China about 30 or 40 times and always managed to do something special there. I always have my passport in my top drawer and I could go at the drop of a hat. I think travel is the most extraordinary experience we can have in our lives. Iâ€™ve made sure the kids have done as much me as possible. Ariana considers herself an experienced traveller and she wants to go to Egypt. We might do a trip to Egypt together. Wherever I can go, I will go. Having said that, I feel very fortunate to be living in Australia and Iâ€™m always of the opinion that any opportunity that is offered to you, whether it turns out to be good or bad, is still an opportunity you need to take. Always something positive comes out of it and itâ€™s a learning experience. Youâ€™ve got to be open to everything.

Busting coronavirus myths
The World Health Organisation has published a few mythbusters for the public. • The new coronavirus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates, as well as cooler areas.
• Taking a hot bath will not prevent the disease. • COVID-19 cannot be transmitted through mosquito bites. It is spread primarily through droplets generated when a person coughs or sneezes, or from droplets of saliva through the nose. • UV lamps should not be used to sterilise hands or other areas of the skin. To protect yourself, wash your hands with soap and follow with disinfectant.
The scientific term for this is sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia.
• While garlic is a healthy food that has antimicrobial properties, there is no evidence that it will protect you against the new virus.
two It snows two different types of metals on Venus. Snow as we know it can’t exist there as it is too hot.
• Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body.
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing, going to the bathroom or before preparing food.
Experts claim that about 75% of the world’s food comes from just 12 plants and five animal species.
Who knew? Ever wondered why rain smells so good? It’s from a mixture of plant oils, bacterial spores and ozone.
Do you remember? Sewing cards (also known as lacing cards) were a huge hit with children during the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. If you hunt around you can still find versions available to buy.

Savvy shoppers Saving big bucks on your weekly groceries isn’t rocket science. It just takes a bit of planning, a budget and an eye for a bargain. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
e have the best intentions when we set our grocery budget, but most of us don’t stick to it and often leave the supermarket hundreds of dollars over budget. If you’re single or in a couple, it’s fairly simple to minimise your grocery bill, but when it comes to feeding a family of four or more, plus pets, the dollars can really add up. According to a national survey of more than 1500 Australians by Suncorp, only 40 per cent of Australians stick to their allocated food budget and a third don’t budget for food at all. The Suncorp Cost of Food Report (December 2019) found Australians spends $272 on food annually, with the average person spending close to $300 a week on food, including $140 a month on barista-made coffee and tea. We spoke with some savvy Sunshine Coast families who manage to feed their families well while sticking to a tight budget. Mum of one Isabel Bolton says she saves hundreds of dollars a week by checking out all the online specials before she goes shopping, writing her grocery list and adding it up with a calculator before she goes to the supermarket. She also writes online reviews for baby products, which awards her with $50 vouchers she can use to pay for groceries. But what happens when you have more than one hungry little mouth to feed? Check out what these Sunny Coasters have to say.

DONNA NIAZOV of Pelican Waters is married with two children, Ariella, six and Talia, three and a dog. She owns a carpet cleaning and pest control business with her husband Miki. She spends around $200 a week on groceries for a family of four and shops predominantly at one of the major supermarkets. Mrs Niazov has recently started shopping twice a week, on Saturdays and Wednesdays, and spends $70 to $100 each visit. She prefers to shop in store rather than online. “I used to be that person who went to the supermarket every single day to pick out what I was going to have that night and I was spending $50 or $60 a day,” says Mrs Niazov. “I changed that two years ago and now I have a budget of $250 a week, but I never really spend that. “Each week I do a meal plan and only
buy the food we need. We eat a lot of fish and I buy fresh salmon on a Saturday. I’m not big on freezing and we eat everything fresh, apart from frozen peas and chips. Years ago, I’d have my freezer jam-packed and I feel disgraced to say half of it would end up in the bin. We just prefer fresh food and we eat loads of vegetables. “I buy fresh salmon, smoked cod, lots of vegetables, fruit and meat that’s on special. If you buy smoked cod, three pieces of that is like $4. I’ll make that with roast potatoes and broccoli. The whole meal costs about $6 for the four of us.” Mrs Niazov has tried click and collect, but says the delivery times aren’t convenient.“I actually really like shopping, it gives me half an hour to 40 minutes out of my working day. I found with click and collect, whoever was doing the packing chose fruit that was off and it cost me more because I had to go and buy more fruit.” Mrs Niazov is strict about only buying what’s on her list and her motto is, ‘don’t go to the supermarket unless you have to’. “If you go into a supermarket, even if you just need milk, you come out having spent a fortune. I forced my husband to buy a Costco membership a couple of years ago and he hated me for it. I walked around, I was like, ‘look how much toilet roll you can get for this price’. Then you go to a supermarket and they always have them on special. “I would say we eat really well. We’re a Jewish family, so food is the absolute heart
of our culture. In some cultures, it’s alcohol but I personally don’t drink. If anyone comes over to our house, it’s not a drink you offer them, it’s a table of food. My husband is Israeli and his parents are Russian, so I’ve witnessed a lot of different types of cooking. You can learn to cook with spices and make the tastiest meal just by using good herbs, vegetables and spices. “My husband doesn’t eat red meat or chicken and I try not to eat it as much anymore. For breakfast, my husband eats boiled eggs with toast and my kids have cut up fruit, yoghurt and Weetbix or toast. I make lunch for everyone every night. My six-year-old has the same thing every day – she either has two Vegemite sandwiches or wraps and a banana, an apple and some sort of sweet, like a little muffin or a little pack of chocolate chip cookies. I also put a yoghurt in, plus some crisps or crackers. My other daughter is more adventurous, she might have a felafel wrap, a cheese sandwich, pasta or tuna cutlets, which is essentially tuna mixed with a bit of onion and breadcrumbs and baked or deep fried.” The Niazov family only eat out for special occasions like birthdays and mostly visit friends’ houses on weekends with four or five other families and everyone brings a dish. Top tip: “Plan your week’s meal in advance. I involve my kids and ask them to pick a meal for the week. Don’t go to the supermarket without knowing what you’re going to have for the week.”

top tips FOR SAVING MONEY ON GROCERIES Plan your meals Research shows planning your meals a few days in advance is the single most effective way to save on groceries, as it stops you buying things you don’t need.
RENEE FIEDLER from Pelican Waters runs a plumbing business with her husband. They have four children aged from six to 13 and two dogs. She shops at a variety of different supermarkets and her weekly grocery budget is $400 for a family of six. “I keep an ongoing list of what I need on my fridge and I meal plan,” says Mrs Fiedler. “When things are on sale, if its something we use regularly, I’ll buy quite a few. I try and buy organic and free range when I can, but I’m on a budget. “I make my own kombucha, coconut yoghurt and sauerkraut, which are three things I like to buy but are very expensive. We buy pantry staples in bulk and I cook in bulk. I do school lunches the day I shop. I pack all the snacks away in portions so they last all week and keep them in the fridge in the garage so the kids don’t eat them all.” Mrs Fiedler says she used to go to the supermarket every time she ran out of something, but now she makes do with what she has until the next shop. Her golden rule is never to take the children shopping. She doesn’t do click and collect and she doesn’t drink alcohol, although her husband does. Like Mrs Niazov, she says meal planning is the key to saving money on groceries. “I’m led by what the kids feel like,” she says. “Spaghetti bolognaise, chicken burgers, lasagne, butter chicken. For breakfast they have Weetbix, fruit, avocado on sourdough, smoothies or baked beans. They rarely get tuckshop as one round of tuckshop for us would cost $50. Top tip: Meal planning. “On the weeks that we don’t do that, we seem to have a lot of wastage and we can easily add an extra $50 to $100 by buying aimlessly.”
Check out specials online Visit the websites of all the supermarkets in your area and see what specials they have coming up, then plan your shop accordingly. Don’t shop when you’re hungry It’s age-old advice, but it makes sense. Going shopping when you’re hungry will lead you down a munchies path of no return. Tailor your meals around specials Write a list of all the upcoming specials (either from a flyer or advert) and plan a week’s worth of meals based on those items. Cook in bulk You can always freeze the leftovers for another meal or simply eat the same meal two nights in a row, saving you time and money. Make or grow your own If you like expensive specialty products like kombucha or sauerkraut, learn how to make it at home. Bake your own bread, biscuits and cakes. Grow your own herbs and veggies.
BREE STEVENS from Glass House Mountains is married with three children aged 12, six and five. Her weekly grocery budget is $150 and she shops at her local supermarket. “It has taken me a lot of practice to get it down to $150 a week,” says Mrs Stevens. “One thing I’ve stopped doing is stockpiling groceries. I was finding we ended up with too many options. I keep things simple. The kids get one choice of cereal and we have just Vegemite or peanut butter to choose from.” Rather than shopping to suit her meal plans, Mrs Stevens does it the other way around. She shops the specials and then plans a month worth of meals based on what she has bought, dividing everything into portions and freezing it as soon as she returns from the supermarket. “For my family, I know a kilo of meat will do me three meals, so once I get home I’ll portion the meat into three meals. I know whatever I pull out of the freezer for the next day is a portion for one family meal. I make sure I buy things that can be used across multiple meals. For dinners, I choose rice dishes and bulk them out with veggies and I do a lot of mince style dishes. Every fortnight I slow cook a two-kilogram portion of meat, usually a pulled pork or
top side of beef. Then I can use that with salad and rice, with veggies or add it to wraps or tacos. That amount of meat will normally do us for six dinners.” Her children’s lunchboxes usually consist of two pieces of fruit, rice crackers and a ham and cheese sandwich she has pre-made and frozen, plus whatever snacks have been on sale. If she buys expensive fruit like blueberries, she mixes it with other fruit rather than allowing the kids to eat a whole punnet. “I tend to do a big shop at the start of the month and then about 10 days later, I’ll do tiny top-ups. I never shop online – I like to go in person to get the markdowns. Sometimes I can get my groceries as low as $100. “No one in our household drinks alcohol so that saves us a lot of money. I don’t buy juice or soda for the kids, they only drink water. Once a month they might get a bottle of soda. The kids’ snacks are quite basic. I buy the Odd Bunch fruit from Woolworths and I buy a lot of frozen fruit for the kids to have in smoothies after school. Their snacks include yoghurt with granola, veggie sticks and rice crackers and I portion it all out. My son would eat a kilo of yoghurt if you let him sit down with a tub, so I just say he can have two scoops, which is about half a cup, added to granola.” Mrs Stevens packs lunches for the whole family and doesn’t buy tuckshop food for the kids. They only eat out once a month and usually go to the local fish and chips shop. She saves on toiletries and cleaning products by buying home brands and buys multi-use items like vinegar and bicarbonate of soda. Top tip: “My big thing is I’m really conscious of dividing everything into portions to eliminate waste and make sure everything gets eaten. I don’t give the kids a million options, or they’ll stand at the cupboard and say there’s nothing to eat. Just limit it to two choices.”

IF IN DOUBT, DON’T FLUSH IT DOWN
SUNSHINE COAST TO HOST 2021 TOURISM AWARDS The cream of Australia’s tourism industry will visit the Sunshine Coast, following the region’s confirmation as the host destination for the 2021 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards. Queensland Tourism Industry Development minister Kate Jones announced the win at the 2020 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards in Canberra, stating that the Sunshine Coast was the perfect place to host the awards. Held in March 2021 at the Sunshine Coast Convention Centre, the awards are expected to attract more than 850 award finalists, tourism leaders and industry stakeholders from across the country. Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford described the announcement as a major coup for the region. “It’s a credit to the Sunshine Coast tourism industry as a whole and the collaborative efforts of the Queensland Government, Tourism and Events Queensland, Sunshine Coast Council, the Queensland Tourism Industry Council and Sunshine Coast Airport,” Mr Latchford says. “Winning the tourism industry’s premier awards event is massive and will result in a significant injection of over 850 extra visitors to the region.”
With toilet paper shortages across the country, Unity Water has issued an official statement, advising the community not to flush anything other than toilet paper down the toilet. Executive manager Unity Water Customer Delivery Rhett Duncan, says: “We don’t mind what you wipe with, but if it’s not toilet paper, please ensure that it goes into the bin. We’ve heard of people cutting up old clothes or using newspaper and while this might do the job, if you flush them down the toilet, you could cause blockages or sewage overflows in your home. Not only are these unpleasant, but they can be expensive for the homeowners to fix,” Mr Duncan says. “Similarly, wet wipes, paper towels and tissues can create fatbergs or blockages when flushed and even if they say ‘flushable’, they don’t break down like toilet paper does. Please ensure they go in the bin. “Unfortunately, we have to deal with blockages, which not only damage our infrastructure and impact how it operates, but it also means we have to divert our crews from other important jobs across our systems.” It is advised not to flush wet wipes, tissues, paper towel, sanitary products, and cotton tips down the toilet.
TAFE QUEENSLAND GRADUATE WINS GOLD TAFE Queensland graduate, Teyanah Popik has won a gold medal at the WorldSkills Australia competition, winning a scholarship that will see her accelerate her hairdressing career in Canada this year. Ms Popik obtained her qualification in hairdressing at TAFE Queensland’s Mooloolaba campus and says she was first inspired by her mum – a hairdresser of 28 years. Before landing in Canada, Ms Popik will attend a ceremony at Parliament House in Brisbane next month, where she will be officially awarded the WorldSkills Scholarship. She’ll then fly to Perth in August to compete in the WorldSkills Australia national competition.

TWO World Kidney Day was marked on March 12, with a reminder that two minutes is all it takes to do a survey that could potentially save your life. Kidney-related disease kills more Australians each year than breast cancer, prostate cancer and road accidents combined, yet awareness of this silent killer remains low. Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service director, Dr Nick Gray is urging the community to take an online test to find out if they are at an increased risk. “Early diagnosis and the correct management can often prevent kidney damage from becoming worse and reduce the risk of kidney failure. Sometimes the progress of the disease can be slowed by diet changes and medication,” Dr Gray says. To find out whether you are at risk of developing kidney disease, search ‘Take the risk test’ at kidney.org.au.
MOOLOOLABA TRIATHLON ONE OF THE LAST MAJOR EVENTS TO GO AHEAD As of Monday, March 16, public gatherings bigger than 500 people were cancelled, post the government’s COAG meeting in a decision to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Despite the impending changes, on March 14 and 15, The Mooloolaba Triathlon event still went ahead at Mooloolaba Beach Vicky Holland winner and attracted visitors and competitors from around the country and worldwide. Athletes from Great Britain, New Zealand and Australia cleaned up and kept their Olympic dreams alive, dominating the iconic Sunshine Coast season opener, ITU World Cup Mooloolaba. Former ITU World Champion Vicky Holland (GBR) put on an impressive display and hopes to secure a spot on the Tokyo 2020 team. She spent time preparing for the Mooloolaba competition after training with surf ironman Phil Clayton. “I wanted to see how my winter’s training had gone because I’d done a lot of work on the swim/bike and I felt they were both pretty solid,” she says. “I haven’t really started my full run training yet and I’m probably about 60–70 per cent on volume, so I’m over the moon with that result. I didn’t think that I would run that well, but I got the bit between the teeth and I thought I would have a dig and came out on top,” she shares.
Sunshine Coast Airport has announced Liana Walsh as the first recipient of the new Sunshine Coast Airport – Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Scholarship through a partnership with the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC), worth $6000 per year for four years (a total of $24,000). Ms Walsh has commenced a double degree in Environmental Science and Civil Engineering and hopes to combine the two degrees to create projects that will protect the environment from climate change. “I’ve always been passionate about the environment,” Ms Walsh says. “It’s going to be such a big help with paying for textbooks and fuel for travel, and I won’t need to work as much while trying to juggle full-time study.”
YOUR DONATION COULD HELP SAVE KOALAS University of the Sunshine Coast researchers have been confronted by heartbreaking scenes of dead and dying koalas in areas ravaged by the recent Australian bushfires.

WHO WILL GET YOUR VOTE IN OUR LOCAL ELECTIONS?
his month, more than three million Queenslanders will go to the polls to have their say in 77 local government elections and two by-elections. On Saturday, March 28, we’ll head to our nearest polling booth to decide who will become our local leaders for the next four years. The Sunshine Coast Council has 224,452 voters and is divided into 10
single-member electoral divisions, plus a mayor. The Local Government Change Commission is a body responsible for reviewing the internal boundaries of councils so every division has a similar number of enrolled voters. As at January 31 2019, the Change Commission found division nine was out of quota and in 2024, divisions one, four, five and nine are projected to be out of quota, with division seven close to the lower limit of the quota. After reviewing its proposed boundaries and having considered feedback from the public submissions, the Change Commission has made modifications to divisions two, three, five, seven, nine and 10. You can find maps and more information on the new boundaries at ecq. qld.gov.au/electoral-boundaries. There are four contenders for our new mayor and 51 candidates have thrown their hats in the ring to take up the coveted role of local councillor.
WAYS TO VOTE Voting in the local government elections is compulsory. A number of pre-polling booths opened across the Sunshine Coast on March 16 and are accessible until March 27, or simply visit your nearest polling booth on election day. If you are enrolled to vote, the Electoral Commission Queensland (ECQ) will be posting a Voter Information Card to your address closer to the election, which will advise you of your division. Telephone voting is available for those eligible, including people with a disability.
You must contact Electoral Commission Queensland for this service. Postal voting closed on March 16. Pre-polling locations are located at 60 Simpson Street Beerwah; Maleny Community Centre; Caloundra Community Centre; 81-87 Currie Street, Nambour; 64-70 Aerodrome Road, Maroochydore; Buderim Uniting Church Hall; Home Central Kawana at Birtinya and Coolum Peregian RSL Sub Branch. For more information, contact ECQ on 1300 881 665.

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS The Electoral Commissioner, Pat Vidgen, says the Electoral Commission of Queensland is monitoring advice from the Queensland Chief Health Officer regarding the appropriate response to COVID-19. “This is a fast-moving situation, and we will continue to monitor the situation closely, and take advice from the relevant authorities, including Queensland Health. If that advice changes we are prepared to respond appropriately. “At this stage we remain focused on making sure that all Queenslanders have the services they need to cast their vote in the local government elections. The ECQ will be implementing a range of new measures for people attending early voting centres and polling booths to vote in person. This includes sourcing additional supplies of hand sanitiser. Voters are also encouraged to bring their own pen or pencil with them to vote as an additional hygiene precaution. Voting remains compulsory. Note: This information is correct at the time of publication, but could change at any time.

OUR FOUR MAYORAL CANDIDATES
MICHAEL BURGESS Michael Burgess has owned and managed businesses employing up to 200 staff. He believes the future prosperity of our region is dependent on supporting small and medium local businesses and that the current council has focused too much on large property developments. Mr Burgess is concerned that the
current council has accumulated too much debt and does not communicate adequately with the residents of the Sunshine Coast. His key election promises are to preserve our unique lifestyle and protect the environment. If elected, he promises to address the “parking problems” across the Sunshine Coast and suggests the creation of secure ‘parking parks’ adjacent to large housing estates. He says rainwater harvesting from the ‘parking parks’ could go towards creating community urban farms and tiny houses could be built near these car parks and farms to house the homeless. He would also like to develop ‘agri-hoods’ in the areas between the coast and the hinterland. Mr Burgess has “no faith” in the idea of a light rail system and believes the CBD is like a “movie set that creates an illusion for ratepayers” and it has no substance. He believes the council has become akin to a property developer and has lost money on projects it shouldn’t have taken on, such as major events and the submarine cable. Overall, Mr Burgess says he has a progressive attitude towards creating a new economy sympathetic to the lifestyle and environment he wants to protect. For more information visit michaelburgessformayor.com.
DON INNES Don Innes has lived on the Sunshine Coast since 1978 and he has been involved with surf lifesaving for many years. He has a background in retail, having worked in management roles in a number of businesses across the Sunshine Coast. If elected, he promises to enhance the
liveability of the Sunshine Coast and provide opportunities for appropriate growth. His overarching ethos is that the council should be more accountable to the general public. Mr Innes’ says his commitment to the urban liveability of the Sunshine Coast has been lifelong. He appreciates the importance of the natural environment as it sits within the disciplines of meeting human living solutions, both past and into the future. He is keen to see that continue to evolve and improve, delivering equitable and beneficial outcomes for stakeholders. Mr Innes says the current council is “out of step” with modern community expectations, especially in relation to issues around local laws, e.g. footpaths, parking, traffic. A key election promise is to instigate a broad review of local laws, particularly where they impact people running home-based businesses. He supports trackless trams and articulated buses over light rail. With regards to the events such as Caloundra Music Festival, he believes the council has developed a “predatory attitude” to small business and will deliver a review of the funding for Caloundra Music Festival.

MARK JAMIESON (INCUMBENT) Mr Jamieson has been the mayor of the Sunshine Coast Council since April 2012. He was also elected president of the Local Government Association of Queensland in 2016. Prior to his election as mayor, he held chief executive and senior leadership roles in media and publishing.
Mr Jamieson has led the Sunshine Coast through a period of major infrastructure development and says his goal is for the Coast to maintain its distinct identity, while being connected to the world. His council has been one of only three in Queensland to achieve a strong financial stability rating from the Queensland Treasury Corporation and has achieved national recognition for a number of its environmental programs. Mr Jamieson has advocated for a City Deal for southeast Queensland and is supporting the push for an Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2032. He states his primary goal for these bids is to see transport and digital infrastructure redevelopment on the Sunshine Coast. His key election promises include continuing to advocate for a mass transit solution for the Coast, advocating no further development of the Sunshine Coast’s urban footprint in the South East Queensland Regional Plan, seeking $30 million in investment for sport and recreation, protecting our cultural and environmental assets and providing greater accessibility to council meetings through live streaming. For more information visit markjamieson.com.
CHRIS THOMPSON Chris Thompson has lived on the Sunshine Coast for 30 years. With tertiary qualifications in business, he spent six years on the Royal Australian Navy, has served as a chief executive officer and director in numerous private organisations and was a divisional councillor for the Sunshine Coast from 2004 to 2016 and deputy mayor from 2012 to 2016.
If elected as mayor, Mr Thompson is promising to provide honest leadership and preserve the Sunshine Coast’s unique lifestyle. He believes the Sunshine Coast is losing its way of life, that community concerns are being ignored and that there is “insufficient transparency in aspects of the current council’s decision making, which has led to inappropriate development”. He aims to restore trust in the council, reduce debt, support economic development, champion small business and protect the environment. Mr Thompson’s key election promises include introducing a conflict of interest register and removing voting rights if a conflict of interest is declared. He says he will also work to protect the Sunshine Coast’s natural assets and ensure community expectations are reflected. He commits to supporting the development of Maleny swimming pool, completing the Windsor Road link in Nambour and developing a rail town master plan. Mr Thompson says he is committed to upholding the integrity of the planning scheme and making sure the Coast gets the balance right between development and the environment.

KNOWING THE CYCLE – IT’S NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM
e all know the share market is well down from its February peak. We should also know that it’s all part of a cycle which we have experienced before. The difficulty about understanding the cycle movement at a given point in time, is that many investors have not experienced the current level of market correction before. We cannot escape the volatility in prices, but it is possible to look back and ask what we can learn from this cycle. The more you learn from this cycle, the more equipped you can be to deal with future booms and busts. The market is dominated by fear and greed, and while a bull market is running,
greed has ascendency in investors’ minds. Greed is one way of expressing it – we could also refer to it as over-confidence. That over-confidence may be reflected in market fundamentals, a belief that positive price momentum will continue, or in the ability of investors to pick winners. The boom usually begins when markets are undervalued, providing a solid foundation for the rise. Investors begin to recognise that certain investments (and it could be shares or property) represent good value, and prices begin to rise as buying support comes in. Once the rise in the market is established, speculators move in and momentum takes over. Market participants become convinced of the inevitability of future rises. During a sharemarket boom, there is usually an attraction towards higher-risk investments, which offer potentially concomitant rewards. This tends to be more prominent in relation to the sharemarket than, say, property markets. Speculators are drawn to smallercapitalisation stocks, often with little or no existing revenue or production. During these phases of market activity, investors tend to place a reduced importance on stable, underlying cash flow and overallocate their resources to growth assets. This euphoric stage normally comes to
an end abruptly and is accompanied by sensationalist media headlines. A bearish or negative sentiment takes hold quite quickly and all appears gloomy. It is at this stage you discover your real tolerance for risk. Clients who purport to be in the market for the long term start calling, wanting to pull their money out, usually after the majority of the fall has taken place. A trend develops quite quickly towards the forgotten sectors of cash and fixed interest, where it is normally left well into the start of the next bull market. Over time as prices correct, value starts to emerge again. Sometimes prices get ridiculously cheap before the mood of gloom and pessimism disappears. The cycle can indeed be summarised
by the old adage ‘buy in gloom and sell in boom’. The trouble is that investors’ psyche tells them to do the exact opposite. The longer one stage of the market lasts, the more likely it is that investors will ignore previous market cycles. Some lessons never to forget are to take profits when appropriate during the good times, and buy into high-quality, stable and well-managed companies when the going gets tough.

Doing it for the kids Former rugby league player and passionate golfer Wendell Sailor is heading our way to do his bit for SunnyKids. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
ormer footballer Wendell Sailor is a self-confessed golf nut, so when he was asked to join the BOQ Maroochydore Celebrity Golf Classic in support of SunnyKids, he jumped at the chance. Not only was he keen to hit a few rounds in one of his favourite parts of Australia, he’s a true champion of good causes and is full of praise for SunnyKids. He’s no stranger to the Sunshine Coast, (he married wife Tara in Noosa), but it’s his first appearance at the Golf Classic. “I’ve heard about it before; Wally Lewis and other celebrities have been part of it,” he says. “When I got the call about six weeks ago asking if I’d be available, I said yep!” Mr Sailor calls the football on Thursday
nights and Saturdays and works at Triple M radio on weekends, so he asked for time off especially for the event. “For me, the work SunnyKids does is so close to home,” he says. “It’s wonderful what they do, both the Bank of Queensland and SunnyKids. I enjoy doing charity functions; you get a lot out of it. You hear people talk about their passion for projects and the networking part is fun, too. I love golf so it combines two of my loves – golf and charity.” Mr Sailor is revered as one of Australia’s best dual-code football players. In rugby league, he won four premierships as part of the Brisbane Broncos during the 1990s, represented Queensland in the State of Origin and played for Australia 16 times, including
winning the 2000 Rugby League World Cup. In 2001, he switched codes to rugby union, playing for the Queensland Reds, the New South Wales Waratahs and the Wallabies, playing the final of the Rugby World Cup in 2003. He returned to rugby league in 2008 and played for two seasons before retiring. He now works in television and radio. Mr Sailor makes no secret of the fact that he has experienced some personal struggles in his life and career, which is one reason he signed up as an ambassador for R U OK? Day and continues to support a number of social support charities and Indigenous programs. “When I went through some adversity, I was with a group called Youth Insearch and I used to stay with these kids at Kurrajong Heights. Just to see the kids and what they’ve gone through, girls saying what their dads had done to them. You understand why they’re so angry. You job as a parent is to give them the best upbringing you can. Some of these kids have been assaulted and told they’re going to be nothing. I want to sit those kids who have suffered trauma down and tell them, just because you’ve been through what you’ve been through, there’s no way you can’t be whatever you want in life.” Mr Sailor was deeply affected by the murder of Hannah Clarke and her three children in Brisbane and calls on our society to do more to keep women and children safe. “It just broke me,” he says. “When I saw that, there weren’t any words I wanted to use… We need to be better as a community and as people.” It’s clear Mr Sailor isn’t one to stay silent and that fierce determination and courage he showed on the field permeates into all aspects of his life, driving him to do whatever he can to help organisations like SunyKids help the vulnerable of our community. “It’s going to be a couple of good days up there supporting SunnyKids and playing golf,” he says. “What I like about golf is it doesn’t matter what level
you are, the time you spend with someone, you get to know more about them and what they do. You’re not just playing against yourself and other people but against the elements and the course. “When you play in these charity golf events, a lot of people are coming together from different walks of life and it’s wonderful.”
FAST facts… The BOQ Maroochydore Celebrity Golf Classic will feature an impressive list of celebrities including Richard Champion, Guy Leech, Scott Hill, Jack Reed, Corey McKernan and Mick Hancock. Last year the 2019 BOQ Maroochydore Celebrity Golf Classic raised an impressive $50,012 for SunnyKids, which enabled up to 80 at-risk children on the Sunshine Coast to partake in the Mentoring Through Sports program run in partnership with the Brisbane Broncos. SunnyKids works to ensure every child, family and individual who needs help can get it. It provides emergency accommodation, domestic violence and referral counselling, and partners with education, child protection and health agencies to keep kids safe.
The BOQ Maroochydore Celebrity Golf Classic is on Friday March 27 at Noosa Springs Golf Resort & Spa. For last minute team enquiries contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Find out more at sunnykids.org.au.

home R O YA L glam Although they’re currently bunking up in a $14-million Vancouver mansion, it’s long been widely speculated that ex-royals Meghan Markle and Prince Harry eventually plan to settle in Los Angeles, more specifically Malibu. The area has long been a celebrity haven, and Princess Diana once confided to her butler that she intended to raise Princes William and Harry in the town, though those plans never materialised. These residential rumours intensified when reports emerged that Harry and Meghan are keen on one particular Malibu house: a hulking, European-style mansion known as Petra Manor, and previously home to billionaire Kylie Jenner. While most of us can’t afford the luxury of a mansion, we can take inspiration from the glamorous style. Here are some of our favourite luxe-look products.

SUNNY COAST HAS A NEW BITE. Jonesy, the Trans-Tasman kayak explorer / adventurer joined Tim Malmo (Osseo-Frame, a new concept in Dental Implants) and Dr Ian Wilson (Coast OMS) for The Coast Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and Dental Implant Centre (Coast OMS) educational evening, Friday night March 6. With rooms at the Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital, Birtinya, and Cotton Tree, Dr Wilson brings over 30 years’ surgical experience ranging from impacted teeth, jaw reconstruction, surgery to replace teeth with dental implants, and developing sites with bone and soft tissue augmentation to enable implant placement. “Having family on the Sunshine Coast, and recently acquiring a property in the area and now building a home, I’m looking forward to assisting Sunshine Coast residents in a range of procedures in my field.” “One of the most rewarding experiences for me personally is hearing patients say …” “It’s great to be able to eat again”. “I never used to smile, but now I can. It’s fantastic!” “Evidence indicates that patients suffer physically and psychologically from missing teeth and jaw size discrepancies. Correcting these issues is important.” After graduating from Dentistry at Sydney University, Dr
Wilson subsequently undertook specialist training in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. Once qualified, Dr Wilson founded Hunter OMS in Newcastle in 1989, later becoming Director of the John Hunter Hospital OMS Unit, a position he held for 19 years. Dr Wilson has now been seeing patients on the Sunshine Coast for 18 months, bringing his extensive experience to this region. Tim Malmo is a Design Engineer and Sales Associate for OMX Solutions, a Melbourne company designing custom-printed titanium jaw joints and Osseo-Frame implants to replace teeth, particularly where conventional dental implants are difficult or impossible. Coast OMS was also excited to have Justin Jones (“Jonesy”) join the program to speak about collaboration to achieve what might otherwise be impossible. Jonesy brings his considerable experience as an explorer, adventurer, world lecturer and public personality among other things to challenge the audience of Dentists, Dental Prosthetists and Dental Hygienists.

HOW TO SLOW DOWN TIME
Sami Muirhead is feeling as unsettled by coronavirus as the rest of us, so she has stocked up on wine and cheese and is ready to lie low.
Richard O’Leary says if you feel like time is speeding up, stop and smell the roses. Time will slow down, if only for that moment.
y young child asked me this very innocently: “Did Forrest Gump eat a bat?” It is little wonder my little guy, who takes things very literally, is a bit perplexed in these unsettled times of coronavirus. I was stunned to read that Tom Hanks was in a Gold Coast hospital with the virus. What the actual? But my little guy’s question also kind of makes sense, as the only Tom Hanks movie my kids have seen recently is Forrest Gump. They are of course massive fans of Toy Story, but they do not know their favourite sheriff is in fact one of my favourite actors. They also heard on the radio on the way to school perhaps a month ago, that eating bat soup (sounds disgusting) sparked the pandemic way back when none of us had even heard of COVID-19. I don’t even know if the bat theory is true, but it sure is the stuff of nightmares. It is a time of unease, is it not? I am hunkering down a little more. I am feeding my kids with a little more care, making sure they are tucked in extra tight in their beds at night. Trying to just carry on as usual. But to be honest, there is a little flutter in my stomach from small twangs of anxiety. I am going back to routines and familiar patterns that always make my mind settle a little. I am making time to change the kids’ sheets so they go to bed
snuggled up in fresh linen. I am drizzling eucalyptus drops into their diffusers at night. My kids are probably a bit overloved. Their bedtime routine is similar to that of a day spa: dim lights to brush your teeth, cuddles with all the dogs, followed by a lovely story before the final curtain closing act of kisses and cuddles, before drifting off to sleep (in theory). It rarely works on my little ratbags. I don’t know if it all helps, but it helps me feel like I am doing all I can to protect my little guys. As for me, I have stocked up on wine, cheese and bubble bath. And while many of our fun dates have been postponed for now, such as going to concerts and our family trip to Bali, my husband and I have made a deal to try to clean our home a bit and even paint the family room over Easter. How did I swap cocktails by the pool for cleaning out boxes of grotty toys? I am dreading this because it could unleash another pandemic: Under The Couch Plague. I am pretty sure there are sultanas from 2014 still under there. If only there was a hidden roll or two of loo paper. I just know in my bones I will be exterminating a bed of dirt and dust and broken toys and dreams. Wish me luck. In the meantime, I plan to be a better parent and educate my kids as to the genius movies of Tom Hanks. I think we will start with You’ve Got Mail and Splash. The true classics indeed!

s I sat there sipping on a peppermint tea, I wondered where all the years have gone. Another week of work over, an ocean swim still fresh on my skin and working my way into a weekend of usual things – coffee, crosswords and kids. And it came back to me, the podcast explaining why as you get older, time seems to move faster. You know that feeling of the last 20 years having flown by without the chance to catch your breath, while the 12 months between your fifth and sixth birthdays seemed to last an eternity? Scientists have worked out why this is. In fact, they have three theories. The first is all about how our internal body clocks slow down, just like our metabolism, which means time seems to go faster. The other argument is about the relative percentage of time that a year makes up of one’s life. For example, if you are five, a year is 20 per cent of your existence, but if you are 50, the past 12 months only represents two per cent of your lifetime. The last idea put forward is that when you are a child, everything is new, but by the time you get to our age, you’ve been there and done that and your life has entered the realm of the routine. You wake up. Leave home. Drive the car to the train station. Catch the train.
Get off and walk to work. Work. Reverse the transport from the morning. Get home. Eat. Go to bed. Repeat for five days. Our lives become so routine that we often forget one moment to the next – like a car trip you do regularly and can’t remember any details of, because you’re on autopilot. Drinking the same brand of tea, having the same conversations with the same people, watching the same TV programs. And while you are doing this, your
“Surely it’s a message for us to live in the moment…” kids are being amazed by every little thing. Wow, a ladybug! How does that package get to our letterbox? What would happen if I did this? So if new experiences slow down time, what does that mean for us grown-ups? Surely it’s a message for us to live in the moment, try new things, smell the roses, or at least be so fascinated with life that time stands still and you wring a little more out of this miraculous opportunity we have been given to live on a planet with so many amazing people, places and things, albeit for what is a very short time.
Richard O’Leary is a journalist, a political adviser and a father who knows there’s a deeper meaning to life, but struggles to find it.

MITCH KING TO PERFORM AT IMPERIAL HOTEL EUMUNDI Mark your diaries for Saturday, March 28 for a gig in The Bunker at The Imperial Hotel, Eumundi. Singer-songwriter Mitch King will take to the stage supported by local musician Andrea Kirwin. The multi-instrumentalist is renowned for his dynamic performances which showcase his ability to blend vocals with electric and acoustic guitars, the kick drum, harmonica and tambourine to create his folky-blues and roots sound.
It was Australian folk, rock and blues singer Kim Churchill who Mr King saw perform at Woodford Folk Festival that inspired Mr King to embrace his talent and follow his dream of being a musician. In 2014, Mr King independently released his first album, A Life Under the Sun. The single Coming Back was picked up by the US football team the Green Bay Packers, who played his song at their season opening match. Mr King later took out the Tamworth Country Music Festival Busking Competition and was crowned the hottest new act at St Kilda Festival. Following on from his early days success, he released an EP titled Southerly Change, which went straight to the top of the blues chart, where it stayed for 10 days straight. In recent times, Mr King has released the singles Burning (which has attracted more than 2.5 million streams) and Believe. He has supported artists such as Tones And I, America and Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson.
For more information on the event, head to imperialhoteleumundi.com.au.

Mr Edwards says people can expect, “beautiful music and extraordinary voices in a wonderful setting”.
LITTLE MATCH PRODUCTIONS AND VENUE 114 PRESENT

what you need to know
RIGHT AT HOME There are plenty of good reasons to remain living at home in your later years. So what are the options and new technologies that make it possible? My Weekly Preview investigates. WORDS: Julie Lake.
t costs a lot of money to keep somebody in a nursing home and much of the cost is borne by the Federal Government. This is why the government prefers to help its elderly, chronically ill or physically challenged citizens to live in their own homes forever. This is made possible by a range of aids and services under the My Aged Care banner; the former available from government health-care outlets or specialist suppliers and the latter from one of the many health-care providers. So, how do you go about accessing them? The answer is, it’s complicated! The first step is simple. If you think you or someone close to you may be eligible for care, talk to your GP about being assessed by an aged-care assessment team (ACAT) of health-care professionals. Or you can self-refer. This can take some weeks to set up unless your case is urgent. Everything hangs on this interview so it’s be brutally honest about your problems so you can be assessed for the right level of care. Don’t hang tough, or you’ll get less than you need. Don’t exaggerate, because these trained experts will see through it. Make a list of your problems and needs first. And make it clear you wish to stay at home. Also, don’t apply for ACAT too early – if you don’t use it for a year you’ll have to reapply. The assessment will determine the level of care you need, from a few hours a week to a total care package.

Details of the four levels of care package are available on the website agedcareguide.com.au. This includes costs and what each person pays depends on a means test. Basically, the richer you are the more you pay. So far, so good. But now you have to select a care provider and there is a bewildering number of these. Geoff Marshall, the manager of a community care organisation that provides various support services to seniors, says the process of finding the most suitable service provider has become “invasive and frustrating to potential consumers” since the system changed in 2015. However, when it comes to making a choice, he suggests considering more than one provider because while it is generally simpler to have a single provider, services differ from one care organisation to another and you can pick and choose those that suit your particular needs. Fees differ too because there is no government-fixed price for service. Jock is 83 and has several chronic health conditions, though he is still able to move around his home with the aid of a stick and walk short distances. His slightly younger wife, Bet, is in good health. She receives a carer’s allowance and Jock receives entry-level home help – three hours cleaning a month – from a local community-based organisation. Transport to medical appointments is also available
at a modest fee. “Even a small amount makes a difference when you are on a pension,” Bet says. Ruth is in her late sixties, with a chronic debilitating illness. She is unable to walk easily, lift anything over a couple of kilos or use her hands with any dexterity. She lives alone and doesn’t wish to leave her second-storey unit. To help her remain in her home she receives a flexible care package that includes cleaning assistance, occupational therapy, essential grocery shopping and unpacking/putting away, podiatry, hydrotherapy (swimming is her only form of exercise) and physiotherapy. Her walker is provided free-of-charge in her care package – provided she needs it at home and not just to go shopping. If she has to swap it for a wheelchair, this, too, will be provided free. Despite the range of governmentsubsidised services and goods available through care providers, many people remain unaware of them or how to access them. Keeping up with government changes and trying to pick the right care provider can be daunting. The good news for baby boomers and the app-enabled is that we are young enough to take full advantage of new technologies now available to help us be more self-reliant in managing our aged care and thus stay in our homes forever – and all we need are our smart phones. Some are already using Google Home
“Don’t hang tough, or you’ll get less than you need. Don’t exaggerate, because these trained experts will see through it” to manage entertainment and switch lights or thermostats on or off. Tecla is a cloudassisted device that operates smart devices through wheelchair driving controls and ability switches. Siri, Amazon Echo and Amazon Alexa all help those whose sight or hearing is impaired. Traditional tools and appliances can “get smart” through products such as WeMo plugs. And this is just the beginning. However, government always lags behind the technological dynamic and so none of these aids yet receive government assistance. But that will change. Statistics show most people want to stay in their own homes for the rest of their lives and here in Queensland, both present and future programs and aids are helping us do just that.

OFF THE SHELF Who would have thought it could be tricky to buy something as basic and ordinary as a bottle of bubble bath, but, like toilet paper, it has disappeared from the shelves. But while toilet paper will come back, I fear it is the beginning of the end for bubble bath. Showers have overtaken baths and the market can’t justify stocking a dazzling range of fragrances for those old-fashioned types who like to luxuriate in a bath. I still have a bathtub, although it is rare for a small apartment where shower recesses are more efficient when space is limited. The truth is it is a big old heavy cast iron tub installed at the building’s construction circa 1966, which, when I renovated, proved easier to leave than remove. This also explains why there is a bath and not a shower. Rather than demolish, I had it recoated from ghastly mushroom pink to pure white and worked around it. The thing is this. If you want bath salts, you won’t have a problem. They come in all shapes and sizes, colours and scents, but to me I may as well throw in a handful of Epsom salts and bicarb soda with some lavender oil and it’s the same result. No, I want the water to turn blue or green with a foam of white on top. And herein lies my problem. I can’t find any at all. Not in the big supermarkets, not in the two-bob shops and reject shops, and not in the big discount chemists. The only bath bubbles I found were for children, which would have been acceptable had they not smelt like bubble gum, watermelon and grape. Naturally, the harder it became to find a bubble potion, the more determined I became to find one. Every time I went anywhere, I looked to see if I could find bubble bath. Persistence paid off and finally, in a suburb far, far away I located a bottle of Radox. There wasn’t a range of brands and fragrances to choose from but I was so grateful to find anything that I snatched it up. I wondered why this may be and decided baths are washed up, relegated to the past, superseded by showers that keep getting bigger and better.

INDUSTRY EXPERTS OSTEOPATHY
Osteopathy & laser helps treat back pain ASA Laser Therapy treatment is supported with scientific research that shows it accelerates tissue healing and reduces pain. This cutting-edge cold laser therapy is painless and has few side effects, yet is much more effective than older lasers. It is effective in managing and improving ongoing issues such as back pain. The combination of osteopathy and laser therapy exhibits excellent clinical results. Osteopathy uses a unique treatment approach focused on the structural integrity of the body as a means of diagnosing and treating pain syndromes and injuries. Osteopathic medicine uses conventional orthopedic testing and assessment tools for diagnosis, along with the integration of mechanical, functional and postural findings from the entire body. At Tyack Health we often incorporate laser therapy, as part of the treatment which may include soft tissue massage, manipulation, joint mobilisation and muscle energy techniques. Osteopaths may also use exercise programs and dietary advice to maximise your recovery and management. Contact us to learn more and experience the benefits of super pulsed laser in osteopathy management.

Why more women develop osteoarthritis
Massage can help during treatment
Most breast cancers found by BreastScreen Queensland scans would grow and become life threatening if they were not treated. But some breast cancers that are found and treated may not have become life threatening. Detection of these cancers is often called ‘overdiagnosis’. Unfortunately, it is not possible at the time of diagnosis to tell exactly which breast cancers may become life threatening and which may not. Research in this area is ongoing. A breast screen or mammogram is still considered to be the best way to find breast cancer in its early stages before a woman or her doctor can notice any changes. The earlier a breast cancer is found, the better the chance of surviving it. Information about the benefits of breast screening, as well as the risks, including overdiagnosis, can help women make decisions about whether they want to have regular screens. If you are unsure, speak to your doctor. BreastScreen Queensland strongly encourages women aged 50 to 74 to have regular breast screens. Referrals are not required for this free service.
With International Women’s Day being celebrated this month, I thought it would be a good opportunity to highlight the fact that women are 60 per cent more likely to develop osteoarthritis than men. There are many theories on why this occurs, but nothing can be proved definitively. There are some controllable contributors that can help manage and even prevent the onset of osteoarthritis, in both men and women. Repetitive bending or lifting and previous injury can contribute to the development of osteoarthritis in either gender. Also, diet and exercise are important components. Carrying extra weight can quickly wear down the hip and knee joints. Both factors can be managed successfully with a general practitioner preventative plan. The fact is that osteoarthritis, even if it has already been developed, does not have to mean the end of enjoying activities you love. However, early detection is extremely helpful in managing its side effects. It is always a good idea to talk with your GP and orthopaedic surgeon about your options as soon as possible.
Did you know you can have massage during treatment for cancer? Oncology Massage is an evidencebased, safe, therapeutic massage that is available during all stages of treatment for cancer, and is a modality that continues to support the person’s wellbeing post treatment. Your current health status is taken into consideration and your massage is tailored to suit. Side effects experienced from conventional treatment of cancer, such as fatigue, nausea, pain, anxiety and depression, and the symptoms of the disease process itself may be reduced. Other benefits may help provide relief from shortness of breath and insomnia. Statistics show that secondary lymphoedema, a condition that can arise in the area of the body that has had lymph nodes removed or radiated, occurs in approximately 20 per cent of breast, genitourinary, gynaecological or melanoma survivors. Decongestive lymphatic therapy provides best practice management plans, which includes education on self-care, compression garment fitting, and manual lymphatic drainage sessions.

Funeral expenses – what is a reasonable way to go? Where a person passes away leaving a Will, the Executor will typically make the funeral arrangements. Occasionally, people other than the Executor incur costs associated with the funeral. Generally, a person who has spent money for a burial has a claim against the estate for their reasonable costs. What is ‘reasonable’ will depend on the circumstances. Recently the court considered whether the son of the deceased should recover the full amount of the funeral he arranged. The total cost was just under $25,000, comprising the funeral, catering, burial plot and an “ornate headstone”. The estate was valued at approximately $160,000 so the funeral costs represented a large proportion of the estate. The deceased’s second wife (who was the administrator) opposed the “extravagant” cost and favoured an amount of $6000 to $8000. The court ultimately ordered the son be reimbursed for the full cost taking into account the wishes of the deceased and his religious and cultural circumstances. Anyone making funeral arrangements should act reasonably. There is certainly no automatic right of recovery.

Staying active can reduce your pain I regularly hear my customers say, “getting older isn’t fun, I have so many aches and pains”. Aches and pains can impact on our quality of life and can often stop us from doing activities we enjoy. Unfortunately, being inactive can lead to further pain, so it is important to find activities or sports you enjoy and continue them. Sometimes this may need to be in a modified form. Being in pain may limit some of the things you do, but it doesn’t have to control your life. For many people the pain cycle can be broken by using a range of strategies including mind techniques such as relaxation and mindfulness-based stress reduction, acupuncture and painrelieving medicines. If medication is required, remember they reduce pain – rather than stop it – so that you can stay active. This month at Pharmacy for Life we want to help you better manage your aches and pains. Give us a call today to book a free one-to-one consultation with our pharmacist to look at strategies to help reduce your aches and pains and stay active.

Take a sensible approach in these uncertain times We are all currently being bombarded with information and updates on the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), and it can be hard to separate fact from hysteria. As we face this uncertain time, let’s look at some practical measures we can all take to limit our risk of infection: 1. Practice proper hand hygiene. Wash hands frequently with soap and water especially before and after eating and after going to the toilet. 2. Cover your mouth when coughing and sneezing, get rid of used tissues and use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser. 3. Avoid travel where possible and exercise caution in large crowds or with family that have recently travelled. 4. Avoid contact with people who are ill. While being elderly does put you in the high-risk category of becoming unwell, there is no need to panic. Take practical steps to keep yourself healthy, exercise caution and if you do exhibit symptoms, call your GP before visiting, or call the Symptom Hotline on 1800 022 222.

Digital dentures New technology is opening up a new world for dental prosthetists and their patients. Using an intra-oral scanner your prosthetist can take accurate images of your mouth. These scans are then used to print models that can be used to manufacture your dentures. Dentures can be designed on software and printed or milled to enable a fully digital workflow. The benefits of this workflow can be remarkable. Scanning your mouth with an intra-oral scanner is less invasive than traditional impression techniques that involve using impression materials. This is especially useful for patients who suffer from a gag reflex. The scan is monitored on a screen to ensure accuracy. Templates of your new dentures can be printed so you can wear and thoroughly assess them before the final product is manufactured. Cost-effective copies of existing dentures can also be manufactured as emergency spares. Intra-oral scanners are portable and can be used to take digital impressions of patients who cannot travel or are in aged-care homes. Contact our clinic for a free 15 minute consultation to assess your case.

Have you checked your income protection lately? Another surprise out of the Royal Commission into insurance is the new changes to income protection policies that insure your most valuable asset, the income you generate. From March 31, 2020, agreed value income protection policies will no longer be available for new policies. This is particularly relevant for self-employed persons where annual income may fluctuate. By July 2021, insurers are expected to no longer offer some other benefits, with the two biggest changes being: • Policies will no longer be “guaranteed renewable”. As a result, every five years the insurer can revise the terms and conditions of a policy and re-assess the insured’s income and occupation position. Current policies, lock the insurer into the terms and conditions from policy commencement and these terms and conditions cannot be made worse, only improved for the benefit of the insured. This means that: > If you changed occupation, your income decreased, or you are not working at that moment and the policy was reviewed at the five-year interval, you could find the cost of the cover increasing or the insurer no longer offering you cover. > At the five-year interval, the insurer
38 My Weekly Preview | March 20, 2020
may also decide to change the terms and conditions of your policy. • Policies with long term benefit periods (typically to age 65) should have controls in place to limit the ongoing claim, such as having a stricter disability definition for longer benefit periods. This means that they are bringing in additional ‘tier’ criteria to meet to remain on claim. In other words, if you can work in other occupations insurers may not pay. Therefore, locking in your income protection contracts before this date is highly recommended. While health is the wealth, having all your financial ducks in a row will help build options for your family the future.

Why nutrition plays a role in emotions
It’s not just about being vein
Do you wake with anxiety? Panic for no reason? You might feel nervous about work, socialising or even the phone ringing, when there seems to be nothing causing it. There are many causes of panic, anxiety, nervousness, depression, lack of excitement and motivation for life, overwhelming stress, reactive anger, palpitations, irritable bowel syndrome, foggy brain and poor concentration. While it seems psychological, there are two common physical problems that cause symptoms to feel more extreme than they should. These affect the nervous system, causing your fight/flight response to function in overdrive. Specific bacteria strains and healthy digestion produce building blocks from your food required for neurotransmitters acetylcholine and GABA, producing feelings of calm and to support your rest/relax state. When these are imbalanced, panic sets in. Restoring nutrients for neurotransmitters and understanding bacterial roles are essential to overcoming anxiety in all mood and energy disorders. Combinng nutritional and emotional support produce more successful outcomes for sustained optimal mental health. One cannot work without the other.
Varicose veins and surface veins are a common problem in our community. As well as being unsightly, many sufferers complain of tired, swollen and aching legs. In some patients, varicose veins can cause bleeding, blood clots or skin ulcers. Dr Karl Schulze of Sunshine Vascular Vein Clinic has treated thousands of local patients over more than 20 years. “Varicose veins are common. The cause is primarily genetic. If someone else in your family had them, there’s a good chance you are predisposed to them as well,” he says. Surgical treatment for varicose veins has evolved in recent years. Dr Schulze now performs many procedures using EVTA or thermal ablation. “This approach uses radiofrequency energy to cause the feeding vein to constrict and ultimately block up. This stops the reverse flow of blood and reduces pressure on the varicose veins, which can be treated at the same time with very minor surgery,” Dr Schulze explains. Undertaken as a day case procedure in hospital, EVTA means that patients are able to return to their normal activities sooner, and scarring is reduced as no large incisions or sutures are required.

UNTREATED SLEEP APNOEA CARRIES SERIOUS HEALTH RISKS
Many people who have been excessive snorers or who have been told they stop breathing in their sleep have been later diagnosed with sleep apnoea. They often then start CPAP therapy. Although most feel the benefits of restored energy and feeling good again, some struggle to get used to the therapy, have old equipment that needs replacing and some, without the proper support, may even stop it completely. Left untreated effectively, apnoea can lead to an increased risk of stroke and other heart problems, type 2 diabetes, major lack of energy, depression and more.
CPAP therapy needs to be looked at as more than a cure for snoring, and there is no better time than right now to reach out for the help needed to get your mojo back again. Home care package or NDIS funding may be used to fund the replacement of old equipment. For NDIS clients, CPAP Direct can work with your plan manager and OT to assess your existing equipment and apply for updated equipment to be supplied when necessary. CPAP Direct has a dedicated team that works with the NDIS. For those with access to a home care package, CPAP Direct can provide an assessment of your existing equipment and recommend to your care co-ordinator what needs to be replaced and serviced. Other products and services CPAP Direct has provided for NDIS and home care clients include in-home sleep testing, CPAP, APAP and bi-level machines and mask equipment, portable oxygen concentrators, hospital-grade high-flow humidifiers, European adjustable bed systems, plus therapy advice, education, training and support. CPAP Directâ€™s goal is to help you get the most out of therapy and ensure you get your mojo back!.

WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER PET THERAPY Did you know that it only takes 15 minutes spent bonding with a dog to promote positive hormonal changes within the brain? Studies have also found that caring for a pet can enrich our lives and provide micro wellness, decreasing our stress levels and blood pressure, and motivating us to get outdoors for a stroll in the sunshine. Theyâ€™re a little bundle of good endorphins all wrapped up in a furry coat with a wagging tail. Studies undertaken by Australian Family Physician journal also found pets to be a good catalyst for meeting people such as neighbours, helping to increase cardiovascular health, are positively correlated with family cohesion and for those whose family members live with Alzheimerâ€™s, dogs have been known to encourage them to respond socially, despite no social response to humans. The benefits of pets are far-reaching and sometimes overlooked. Forever happy to be in our company, these little hot water bottles can be rewarding companions if given the chance. The precious bond that you share with your pet is special and rare and something to be cherished. Health benefits aside, pet owners are among some of the happiest people in the
world, but if youâ€™re a pet owner, you already know that. In the vast majority of Lendlease retirement villages, pets are a welcome part of the community. Walking groups, where pets and owners meet up regularly to stroll together, are commonplace. However, it is always encouraged that individuals wanting to find out more about the village enquire as to the pet policy for that particular village.

SUNCARE IS THERE FOR THE COMMUNITY
Suncare’s Vicky Gray & Fiona Jocumsen with customer Kevin Melton
HAPPY CAMPERS AT NATURE’S EDGE BUDERIM Recent retirees Clive and Gail Mann have always enjoyed the caravanning lifestyle. So when the time came to downsize from their large family home to enjoy a more relaxed, maintenance-free lifestyle, accommodation for their RV was top of their list. “Going into a new estate with smaller homes, young families, lots of school traffic and renters didn’t really appeal to us,” says Mrs Mann. “We were looking for a quieter place to live.” Having visited friends at Nature’s Edge Buderim over-50s lifestyle community, the couple was impressed with the lush riparian rainforest setting, elevated site and convenient location within walking distance of an emerging town centre. However, most important for the Manns was the option of buying a property with a garage suitable for their RV and their beloved 1964 Austin Healey Sprite, which they have lovingly restored to its former glory. “We also really liked the concept of over-50s living,” adds Mrs Mann. “It’s gated, it feels safe and there is a real community feel here.”
The lively social calendar at Nature’s Edge Buderim and the friendly environment also gets the big tick of approval from the fun-loving couple. “It’s a real bonus. We only moved here in October and already we have met lots of nice people,” says Mr Mann. The Manns have already planned their next big trip and are looking forward to enjoying the freedom that comes with the lock-up-and-leave lifestyle at Nature’s Edge Buderim. “Last time we went away, we had to organise someone to come and clean the pool and someone to mow the lawns. Now that we’re at Nature’s Edge, we can just lock-up and go,” says Mrs Mann. “Even better, the neighbours asked if they could water our lawns while we were away prior to us even moving in,” adds Mr Mann. “Everyone is willing to help; it’s great.” Sounds like some very happy campers indeed!

FIND YOUR FIT WITH HALCYON Halcyon homeowners are reaping the benefits of maintaining an active lifestyle, prioritising exercise to improve energy levels and keep minds sharp. Whether it’s indoors or the great outdoors of southeast Queensland, over-50s homeowners are hitting the bushwalking trails, cycling or taking up pilates in a bid to stay on top of their health. With a new community – B by Halcyon – opening in Buderim this year, new

homeowners will be well placed to take advantage of the facilities and wonderful natural attractions of the iconic town’s rainforest setting. Halcyon homeowner Rosemary Wright is firmly in favour of exploring the great outdoors with bushwalking. “Being immersed in nature in all its variety is so beautiful and such a privilege,” Rosemary says. “It’s a very peaceful thing to do and calming for the mind.”
Ms Wright has walked almost every trail in the Lamington National Park and is particularly proud of hiking the 22-kilometre Binna Burra to O’Reilly’s track, a walk that took seven hours to complete. As well as regular bushwalks, her hiking group also hits the gym together and plays pickleball and table tennis. “We live a very busy, active week – most of us have never been fitter in our lives,” she says. Preferring an all-weather workout, Keith and Aine Rice are quick to advocate the benefits of pilates, a workout they’ve regularly done together for two years. The couple credit their move to a Halcyon over-50s lifestyle community seven years ago with kickstarting their fitness. “We love everything about pilates,” Mrs Rice says. “We love stretching, we love our instructor and once you’ve finished the routine you’ve worked every muscle in your body. “Our fitness has definitely increased. We also enjoy the social aspect and we have lots of fun with the group who take part in the class.”

HELP IS COMING FOR WELFARE RECIPIENTS Welfare recipients and pensioners will receive a $750 cheque as part of a Federal Government plan to keep the economy afloat amid the coronavirus outbreak. Prime Minister Scott Morrison last week outlined initial measures of the $22.9 billion package. The plan aims to prevent the Australian economy entering a recession as the globe grapples with the health crisis. From the end of March, about 6.5 million welfare recipients and pensioners will receive a one-off, tax-free $750 cheque, at an overall cost of $4.8 billion. “We’re going to do everything we can to ensure they’re best positioned to bounce back strongly on the other side,” Mr Morrison told reporters in Canberra. “We can’t control the source of this problem, being the coronavirus, which has come from elsewhere, but we can control our response.” While not officially part of the coronavirus response, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg says deeming rates – used to calculate how much some pensioners are earning on their financial investments – will be cut by 50 basis points to reflect recent interest rate changes. The government has also announced $2.4 billion for health measures to combat the coronavirus. - AAP

SUNSHINE COAST PROPERTY MARKET FORECAST OUTLOOK AS ECONOMY FACES ADVERSITY With the world in turmoil, investing in real estate is a solid investment option. WORDS: Rachael Tickner.
he coronavirus is shaking things up with the true impact yet to be seen. The stock market is more volatile than ever, and as people attempt business as usual, it’s anything but. We talk to Coast experts to get their take on whether investing in property is a viable option in uncertain times, and if the current economic climate is similar to the 2008 Global Financial Crisis (GFC) and if so, what we can learn from it. Grey Young, of Young Property Group and Australian President for the International Real Estate Federation, says going by past experiences of similar declines in stock markets, this often leads to a spike in real estate interest. “The reasons for the drop in today’s stock market may be different to the GFC, however the result is the same. A loss of confidence in the stock market results in money flowing out of it looking for an alternative safe haven. Investors are always looking for a safe haven for their money and one that will give them a good return. The real estate market provides this,” Mr

PROPERTY Young says. “Interest rates are so low that nobody wants to keep their money in the banking sector. Real estate offers a stable investment with good returns. “We will see more homes being listed and sold. Currently the market is very strong with a lack of listings and a lot of buyers competing for those listings. I would expect this to increase, which will lead to higher prices. We will then find that sellers will be tempted to list their properties to capitalise on the high prices so more properties will enter the market,” Mr Young says. Jack Childs, of Think Investment Realty, shares this view and says: “History shows that after every major shakeup in the share market, the property market surged strongly – in some cases almost doubled over the next year or two.” So, what should you consider if opting to invest in real estate instead of shares? Mr Young says he prefers real estate as the market is more stable than shares and in the long term, the capital growth is excellent. “Because housing is one of the fundamental needs of our society, people will always be looking to either buy or rent. Currently on the Sunshine Coast the rental market is very strong as more and more people move to the area. “With real estate, you can get a good
“With real estate, you can get a good return on your investment”
return on your investment with assured capital growth over the medium and long term. The other benefit is asset improvement. Unlike shares, a property owner can improve the property by way of renovation so as to increase the property value. One downside of real estate is liquidity – with the share market one can sell one day and buy in the next. With real estate, it is more of a medium to long term investment, which should be recognised,” Mr Young adds. Richard Scrivener of Next Property
Group says despite it being too early to predict what the market will do, he believes good property holds its value, as it did during the GFC, and offers a strong return on investment thanks to the rental market. “If you look at most areas on the Sunshine Coast and even Australia-wide, properties tend to double in value every 10 years, and like all good blue chip investments, it is always about the long term gain rather than the short term pick up,” he shares. Head of research at CoreLogic Asia
Pacific, Tim Lawless, highlights recent data and states that the past five years has seen Sunshine Coast housing values rising at the average annual rate of 3.6 per cent, with the past 12 months slightly higher at 3.9 per cent. “Additionally, the gross rental yield is tracking at 4.6 per cent per annum, providing a total annual gross return of around 8.5 per cent. Over the same period, the ASX200 showed an average annual growth rate of 1.7 per cent as well as significantly more volatility. Of course, housing investments tend to have larger capital outlays on the purchase, as well as maintenance costs and some periods of vacancy,” Mr Lawless explains. Mr Young says that overall, the enquiry levels are solid. “Stock markets are typically much more reactive to shocks, which can at least partially be explained by the liquidity of the asset class; transactional costs are very low, the market value of shares are highly transparent and the trading platform facilitates a rapid transactional rate,” Mr Lawless says. “There are some similarities with the GFC in that this is a global event that was unexpected that will involve a global stimulus response in an effort to keep economies buoyant and stave off recession.”

with MWP’s man in the water
Okay peeps I am now back from snowboarding… cheer if you must. Canada has had an epic year for powder. For those who ski, you will appreciate this story. Last Wednesday a blizzard came in at 8am, and yep, I went out in it when everyone stayed in. The result? I scored non-stop untracked powder all day by myself. Not once did I see anyone while riding down four- to five-kilometre powder runs for seven hours. Snap! Toilet paper! Yep, same thing happened in Canada. Gumtree is reselling one roll for $100. Now I want to meet the person who is that dumb to buy a roll, as I have a deal for you.
