From the editor Hello readers, welcome to a very positive edition of My Weekly Preview. As we begin the final third of the year, I thought it might be time to feature people who, despite experiencing challenging times, have forged ahead and as I’ve often heard said, ‘made lemonade out of lemons’. I believe we can never really understand what another person is feeling, but we can empathise and we can be inspired by their motivation and resilience. A couple of local professionals, pharmacist Warren Blee and stress management and resilience coach Natalie Stockdale make their inaugural MWP appearance as columnists. On page 24, they share their expert knowledge in the field of wellbeing. I’m sure their practical advice will support your own wellbeing goals.

AGENDA

IS NATURE RECOVERING? Professor Albert Van Dijk from the Australian National University looks at the data to see how our environment is faring after 2019.

W

hen the clock ticked over to 2020, Australia was in the grip of a brutal drought and unprecedented bushfires. In the months since, while many of us were indoors avoiding the pandemic, nature started its slow recovery. Every year, my colleagues and I collate a vast number of measurements and data and combine them into a consistent picture of the state of our environment. Our 2019 report documented a disaster year. We repeated the analysis after the first half of 2020, keen to see if the environment was recovering. It’s not all good news. But encouragingly, our results show most of the country has started to bounce back from drought and fire. Here are four ways that’s happening.

RAIN – Whether a region is in drought depends on the measure used: rainfall, river flows, reservoir storage, soil water availability or cropping conditions. By most measures, and for most of the country, wetter weather in 2020 helped ease drought conditions, but with caveats and notable exceptions. Halfway through January, rain-blocking conditions in the Indian Ocean finally relented. This allowed the long-awaited monsoon to reach northern Australia and encouraged more rainfall across the rest of the continent. February and March brought much-needed rains in southeast Australia. WATER AVAILABILITY – Across the continent, the volume of water flowing into rivers in the first half of 2020 was almost four times greater than the previous year – although still below average. Good rains

VEGETATION GROWTH –

fell in the northern Murray-Darling Basin. Some made it into the town and irrigation water supplies that ran empty during the drought, and storage levels showed a modest improvement by the end of June. The flows were enough to fill wetlands such as Narran Lakes and the Paroo and Bulloo River wetlands, west of Bourke. There were enough flood waters left to send a modest flood pulse down the Darling River in March for the first time since 2016. Reservoir water storage across the entire Murray-Darling Basin improved from 36 per cent of capacity at the end of June 2019 to 44 per cent a year later. Even so, by June 2020 dry conditions persisted in the tributaries and wetlands of the middle and southern Murray-Darling Basin. Storage in water supply increased for Sydney and Melbourne while remaining stable for Brisbane, Canberra and Perth. Meanwhile, lake and wetland extent across much of Western Australia remained

at record or near-record low levels. Due to the poor northern monsoon, Lake Argyle in northern Australia shrank to 38 per cent of capacity, a level not seen for decades.

SOIL MOISTURE – Soil moisture acts like a bank account: rainfall makes deposits and plant roots make withdrawals. This makes soil moisture a useful measure of drought condition. Average soil water availability across the country was far below average at the start of 2020 but returned closer to average from March 2020 onwards. By the end of June, rains had also improved growing conditions in southeast Queensland, western New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. However, recovery in these regions is, literally, shallow. Soil water remains low in the deeper soil layers and groundwater. Drought conditions also persist in the dry inland of Australia.

Vegetation condition is measured by estimating leaf area from satellite observations. National leaf area reached its lowest value in December 2019 due to drought and bushfires but improved once the rains returned from February onwards. Autumn rains also brought the best growth conditions in many years across much of the eastern wheat and sheep belt. But in the Western Australian wheat belt, which did not see much rain, cropping conditions are average or below average. We separately measured vegetation recovery across areas in southeast Australia burnt at different times during the 2019-20 fire season. In the central and northern NSW regions, which burnt earlier in the fire season and received plentiful rains, recovery was relatively swift. But in areas burnt in early 2020, recovery has been slow. Leaf area recovery is not a good measure of biodiversity. Much of the increase will have been due to rapid leaf flush from fire tolerant trees and undergrowth, including weeds.

CLIMATE CHANGE – Rainfall after June has been average to good across much of Australia, and La Niña conditions are predicted to bring further rain. In the long term, climate change remains the greatest risk to our agriculture and ecosystems. Ever-increasing summer temperatures kill people, livestock and wildlife, dry out soil and vegetation, and increase fire risk. Decisive climate action is needed, in Australia and worldwide, if we’re to protect ourselves and our ecosystems from long-term decline. source: theconversation.com.au

FAST FACTS

Looking back.

Did you know? The sunflower is native to North America and was first grown as a crop by indigenous tribes more than 4500 years ago. Native Americans cultivated the sunflower from its original bushy, multi-headed type to produce a single-stemmed plant bearing a large flower. The crop’s multiple uses included milling for flour or meal production. The sunflower continued as a staple in North America for about 4000 years until it was discovered by European explorers in 1510. Spanish sailors were the first to gather up large quantities of sunflower seed and ship them back to Europe.

A gardening first The world’s first botanical garden was created in Padua, Italy in 1545. It still preserves its original layout – a circular central plot symbolising the world, surrounded by a ring of water. Other elements – some architectural (ornamental entrances and balustrades) and some practical (pumping installations and greenhouses) – were added later. The garden continues to serve its original purpose as a centre for scientific research. Its herbarium and library continue to be among the most important in the world.

Quote of the week. “Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.” – Mark Twain

1997 The council purchased the land for the Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Garden, located in Tanawha, in 1997. In 1998, a masterplan was developed, and major development work began in 2000. The then-governor of Queensland, Major General Peter Arnison, opened the gardens on December 1, 2001. Today, the gardens cover 82 hectares.

BY THE NUMBERS

1000 The Rose of Hildesheim, also called the Thousand-year Rose, is thought to be the oldest living rose on the planet. It grows up the side of Germany’s Hildesheim Cathedral and is thought to have been planted in the early 800s. It was nearly destroyed during WWII when bombs annihilated the cathedral.

Do you remember? Australia’s national floral emblem is the golden wattle (Acacia pycnantha). The first day of September is National Wattle Day. The golden wattle was unofficially accepted as the national floral emblem to mark Federation in 1901. In 1912, the then-prime minister Andrew Fisher suggested the wattle be included as a decoration surrounding the Commonwealth Coast of Arms. In 1988, then governor-general Sir Ninian Stephen proclaimed the golden wattle as the national floral emblem.

Today in history – September 10 1875 – At the British Open Men’s Golf at Prestwick Golf Club, Willie Park Sr wins his fourth title. 1880 – Pierre de Brazza signs a treaty with King Makoko of Congo. 1884 – Congressman John R Lynch presides over Republican National Convention. 1894 – London taxi driver George Smith is the first to be fined for drunk driving. 1919 – China becomes a member of the League of Nations. 1923 – Irish Free State joins League of Nations. 1926 – Germany joins the League of Nations. 1931 – Lord Cecil of the British government says war was never so improbable.

A SPRING TIME FOR CREATIVITY Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance president and Wild/Flower Woman Dr Sue Davis explains the work of the Coast’s peak arts advocacy organisation.

A

s the wildflowers have been blooming, so has creativity during COVID-19. For myself it has included exploring locations with other women and art making in situ as part of our ‘Wild/Flower Women’ project work. For others, art making has provided solace and comfort amid the chaos – a role art has played for people in other times of pandemic, depression and isolation. Art making with and in nature is something we are fortunate to be able to enjoy in Coast locations. The region is known as a creative hotspot, and the Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance (SCCA) plays a role in providing ways to connect up artists and creatives across the region. The organisation was born in 2008 out of the Noosa Creative Catalyst program, which featured a visit to the region from Richard Florida of ‘The Creative Class’ fame. His work promoted the key role of creatives and bohemians in creating communities where people want to live and work. That was a message the SCCA continued to promote, and the group is now recognised as the peak creative arts and industry organisation for the region. Our mission is “to promote the value

Some of our signature projects, such as Juice and Jam arts breakfasts and Pecha

Kucha Nights, have been put on hold as guidelines about live gatherings have fluctuated, but key projects have continued. These include the popular Refinery Creative enterprise mentorship program, run in collaboration with Sunshine Coast Council and The MET. This year, 13 creatives have been on a mission to use business as a force for good. With the help of world-class industry mentors and delivered via on online program of

masterclasses and workshops, the cohort is ready to share their bold new businesses. We’ve also renewed the tenancy with Sunshine Coast Council for the Sub Tropic Studio space in Caloundra. The studio was established to demonstrate the benefits of creative activation of under-used spaces. The SCCA and Sunshine Coast Council have worked collaboratively to transform the ground-floor transit lounge at the Caloundra Bus Interchange into a vibrant dedicated creative space. This creative hub has vacancies for artists in residence, event or workshop hire, lightbox exhibitions plus permanent co-working and hot desk hire. During this year we’ve also supported two writing projects, with Maxine Mellor and Plablab working with more than a dozen people who are developing new performance works, and Dr Melanie Myers supporting writers developing a publishable manuscript. We encourage people to stay connected to their creativity and keep exploring and developing their creativity through these times. To stay in touch with SCCA activities and programs, follow us on Facebook or our website.

COVER STORY

Mind over matter

Tough times call for a tough mindset. We talk to people from different walks of life to discover how they’ve learnt resilience. WORDS: Janine Hill Brooke Garrett has turned her life around Image: Janine Hill

A

year after she decided to take control of her addictive tendencies, Brooke Garrett jumped out of a plane on a tandem skydive. “I think I wanted to do it because it was a little scary,” she says. Confronting fear seemed an appropriate way to celebrate, because it was exactly what she did when she walked into The Health Retreat at Kiels Mountain on August 22, 2019. Ms Garrett had left her friends and life behind in Sydney and was scared of what lay in front of her. “I’d been drinking since I was 15 and using drugs since I was 17. I thought, how am I to be me sober? I didn’t know how to be me without alcohol,” she says. At 24, she had detoxed from prescription medication she had been taking for anxiety and depression for 10 years, but she could not quite kick the drink or illicit drugs. “I’d stop for two or three years and then I’d go back to the same parties,” she says. But Brooke always knew it had to stop or she would end up dead.

She did a three-week recovery program at The Health Retreat, learning how to live healthily and mindfully, and working on herself. “It’s about getting in there and treating all the stuff, not just treating the alcohol. It’s about figuring out who you are as a person and learning about yourself,” she says.

“I’d been drinking since I was 15 and using drugs since I was 17…” “If you don’t actually get in there and deal with whatever trauma or anxiety is going on, you’re never going to get anywhere.” Brooke, 27, now works as a night manager at The Health Retreat, is studying counselling, and is interested in pursuing art therapy. “I just know this is my life’s purpose. I’ve never been so sure of anything in all of my life.”

ussell Faulkner has ridden a rollercoaster of emotions since he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, but the ride is smoothing out. The Buderim retiree’s future looks good since surgery in March and he is looking forward to many more years with his wife of 44 years, Diane, their five children, and soon-to-be-15 grandchildren. Mr Faulkner describes being diagnosed with prostate cancer as like

“getting hit in the head with a hammer”. His family, friends and his church, Lifepointe Baptist, were supportive but after a period of battling with the diagnosis, he reached out to the Bloomhill Cancer Care centre at Buderim. Conversations with a nurse helped Mr Faulkner deal with the diagnoses mentally. Bloomhill also helped him lose 15 kilograms to improve his chances of a good surgical outcome. Mr Faulkner came through prostate surgery without complications and even completed his Masters in law while going through treatment. He still trips to Bloomhill every week to use the gym equipment and a nurse rings him every six weeks or so to see how he is going. “I really can’t speak highly enough of Bloomhill and their professionalism and empathy. They know what you’re feeling. They really got it,” he says.

ut of adversity comes opportunity. Ben Franklin said it. Nikita Pallister has lived it. When money was tight before Christmas last year, Ms Pallister knew she had to do something. Her then-partner had made timber and resin furniture without much success, but the timber and tools were still there. “I picked them up and it just really took off,” she says. Ms Pallister made a couple of small pieces, which drew interest and a couple of orders, and the income-booster has grown into a full-time business. She has taken on a business name and is now about to take the next step and move WoodKnots Workshop out of her Bli Bli home into an industrial shed at Marcoola. The only problem now is how to keep up with demand, even with the help of friend and flatmate Ben Corbett. Her tables, benchtops and

splashbacks are characterised by resin poured into organic patterns burnt into the timber using the Lichtenberg technique of pumping electricity through slabs of timber. “It’s dangerous but it’s good fun,” she says. Ms Pallister dropped the accounting and bookkeeping course she was studying when she first picked up the tools and could not be happier with what she is doing for a living. “I enjoy the physical aspect of it. It’s not incredibly hard physical work, working on the sander, but I never imagined how therapeutic it could be, sanding the tables and seeing the transformation,” she says “I like seeing the customers when they see their piece. I keep them up-to-date along the way with photographs to make sure they’re happy with what they’re getting but when they see the finished piece in person, that’s the most rewarding part.”

hen a two-year-old staffy called Axle wound up at Sippy Creek Animal Refuge Society (SCARS), the days stretched into weeks which stretched into months which stretched into years. Axle held the record as the refuge’s longest resident until Jeraldine Graham and her son, Jesse, adopted him and his pen-mate, Laura. The dogs are now about 14 and have led their best lives with Ms Graham and Jessie, with a yard to run in, walks, pats and cuddles, good food and warm beds. Ms Graham struggles to believe that nobody else had taken Axle home before they did. “I couldn’t believe he was there for so

long. If you like staffies, he’s a beautiful staffy. He just wants to be around me. He’s never more than three feet away,” she says. Jesse and Ms Graham adopted Axle and Laura after Jesse’s first dog, another SCARS dog, George, died of a tumour, and they have added another rescue, Ginger the cat, to the mix. Ms Graham says the animals, particularly Axle and Laura, give more than they take. “They do dog stuff and I just laugh. They’ve brought me peace. When you’ve had a crappy day, you always know you have someone to come home to who loves you and it doesn’t matter. It really is unconditional love.”

Character traits of positive people Positive people are inspired by the possibilities. ‘What I can do’ is more important than ‘What I cannot do’. Your attitude has great power, because it determines the most of what you experience each and every day of your life. People with positive attitude lift the energy and spirit of others, inspiring them with encouraging words. Happy people focus on the best things that happen to them every single day. They see a miracle in the smallest aspects of life. They feel gratitude for all the experiences, good and bad.

EXIT TO ADELAIDE Interstate travel is back, with flights between the Sunshine Coast and Adelaide resuming.

S

unshine Coast Airport is ready to resume services to Adelaide, giving a much-needed boost to the Sunshine Coast tourism industry. Sunshine Coast Airport head of corporate relations Ayllie White says regular passenger flights between the Sunshine Coast and Adelaide recommenced on September 1, thanks to the Queensland government’s $15-million aviation recovery fund. “During September, we’ll host two Jetstar services per week on Tuesday and Sunday, with that increasing to three a week in October,” Ms White says. “The service will deliver more than 4300

seats each month, providing locals with the opportunity to visit the festival state straight from their doorstep. “With pent-up travel demand remaining high, we expect the service will be very popular with local people seeking new horizons such as South Australia’s world-renowned wineries. “We also know that South Australians are craving warmer weather following a long winter, so we expect the early recommencement of the service will inject a much welcomed $4.7-million boost into the local economy.” Visit Sunshine Coast interim chief executive officer Craig Davidson and

Tourism Noosa chief executive officer Melanie Anderson welcome the return. “We are working closely with Sunshine Coast Airport and Tourism Noosa as part of our aviation partnership to roll out a targeted marketing campaign in Adelaide to further drive visitation to the Sunshine Coast in line with the resumption of the Jetstar service,” Mr Davidson says. “Reopening the region back up to the Adelaide market is extremely timely and will provide further support for the Sunshine Coast’s tourism industry, keeping us moving forward on the path to recovery.” “We were seeing some good traction with South Australian visitors to the region and look forward to welcoming them back,” Ms Anderson says. Ms White says departing passengers should allow extra time to check in, as changes had been made to ensure COVID-safe travel. “We are taking extra precautions to protect against the spread of COVID-19, with our terminal regularly undergoing extra cleaning, and new measures being introduced to limit contact surfaces and dwelling areas,” she says.

The Brisbane-based foundation has collaborated with Sunshine Butterflies to help spread the message of mental health and wellness in people living with disabilities. They are kindly supporting Sunshine Butterflies disability support charity, which will be embarking on a threemonth social media campaign showcasing members with a disability talking about their own personal mental health journeys, and how they have overcome and dealt with hardships. The mission of the Mental Awareness Foundation is to support charities working directly with communities who are helping to raise awareness of mental health.

SALT MAGAZINE IS OUT

T

he Sunshine Coast’s favourite lifestyle publication is hitting the streets again this week. The spring issue of Salt magazine, the quarterly publication that celebrates our beautiful region, is out now. The magazine is 100 per cent locally owned and shares stories of local people, experiences and natural wonders from Noosa down to Caloundra and out to the hinterland. Salt’s editor Jemma Pearson says every issue of Salt is a celebration of our region and the people who call it home. “I feel so blessed to work on this beautiful magazine,” Ms Pearson says. “Salt has been a publishing staple in our region for more than 15 years. “But it’s not just locals who read it. We get emails from people who live all over the nation and holiday here, and they tell us how much they love the magazine. Because of the lockdowns, we’ve had people from Melbourne, Sydney and Perth calling us to ask if we can mail the latest issue to them because they can’t visit this year. It’s so gratifying to know that we are brightening up their day.” Ms Pearson says she loves working with her small local team on the magazine. “I get

to hear about some incredible people with amazing stories.

TRAFFIC FLOW It’s great to see the Sunshine Coast expanding so quick but it’s also sad that the council hasn’t mentioned how all the traffic from this new suburb is going to get to the Bruce Highway. Will all the traffic be sent back to Caloundra Road or will Roys Road be extended to Aura? This is an urgent question that needs to be addressed by the council, as there will be chaos with the extra traffic. Barry, Currimundi

Turning to read the week’s profile by Leigh Robshaw it was a delight to then read of author S R White’s success. I have written since I was nine years old and in January, shortly after my 78th birthday, I published my anthology – Fun, Fantasy & Feelings – Along Life’s Path. It is a collection written over many years and has been well received by those who have bought it. Since then, I have continued to write and I am sending you a poem which fits with the current COVID situation in hope that you may wish to share with readers.

Sunshine Coast volunteers make our beaches some of the cleanest in Australia In the past four years, 450,000 pieces of litter – almost 11 tonnes of rubbish – have been collected from Sunshine Coast beaches. This incredible feat was achieved thanks to the dedication of volunteers, schools and community groups, in partnership with Sunshine Coast Council as part of its Beach Clean-up Program. Environmental operations senior project officer Raeleen Draper says, “We are lucky to have a community that cares so much about both humans and native animals living in a clean Sunshine Coast,” Ms Draper says. “While we are so grateful, it’s also a sad fact that we even have to do this – which is why we are also working behind the scenes

PROFILE

CREAM OF THE CROP Palmwoods’ Lilli Collingwood has found her passion in the city that never sleeps. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

L

anding an exciting job in New York City is the dream of many intrepid Aussies – after all, if you can make it there, you’ll make it anywhere. But Sunshine Coast designer Lilli Collingwood didn’t entertain any such grand notions until a serendipitous event led to her moving to Brooklyn to take up a job at what must be one of the coolest places for a designer to work – the Museum of Ice Cream. Ms Collingwood grew up in Palmwoods and graduated as art dux at Suncoast Christian College in 2015. She went on to complete a Bachelor of Design and Communication at the University of the Sunshine Coast in 2018 and after an internship in Brisbane, took off to New Zealand for a well-earned break. “I was super exhausted and wanted to do something to celebrate finishing my degree,” she says. “I met a stranger at a bus stop in this small little town and we got chatting. I told him I was a designer and he said his daughter had moved to New York to work for a place called the Museum of Ice Cream. I thought he was messing with me. I got home and Googled it and it was real. I went to the careers page and they had a

graphic design internship going, so I applied. I didn’t think I had a shot at all.” As fate would have it, Ms Collingwood landed the job and found herself alone in New York at 21. It was a long way from the cruisy lifestyle she was used to back home. “The first three months was crazy,” she says. “Coming from the Sunshine Coast, everyone’s chill, you’ve got a car, it’s very comfortable living. I was thrown into the hustle and bustle of the city, people

weren’t as friendly and chatty. It was definitely hard the first couple of months and I was pretty homesick, but once I found my groove and got settled at work, I was more comfortable. At first I thought it was going to be a short-term stint and I didn’t see myself here for long.” After a three-month internship, Ms Collingwood was offered a full-time position and 18 months later, she’s the museum’s lead graphic designer on the

marketing team and is loving New York life. “I do graphic design for social media, email marketing, I do a lot of marketing and copywriting,” she says. “My main thing is design, all the stuff on Instagram, Mailchimp, Square Space, digital campaigns. They’re always doing new campaigns, especially now with the current state of the world, a lot of things are going virtual. Every month we’re trying to push out new initiatives to keep it fresh and keep

PROFILE pushing the brand forward. New things are always needing to be pumped out.” Ms Collingwood has a special talent for creating GIPHY stickers and was thrilled when last year, celebrity Kim Kardashian reposted one of her stickers on Instagram. The Museum, which started several years ago as a pop-up business, has bases in New York and San Francisco. It has interactive environments and sensory experiences inspiring human connection through the universal power of ice-cream. “Everything is bright pink, there are lots of Insta-worthy photos, a sprinkle pool, architectural pieces – it’s definitely not your traditional museum,” Ms Collingwood says. The COVID pandemic was looming when she came home to visit family and friends on the Sunshine Coast in February, and she had to make the difficult decision about whether to return or play it safe and stay here on the Coast. “It was crazy because they laid a whole heap of people off at the start of COVID and it was definitely very scary, because when you lose your job here, your health care is gone,” she says. “My parents were definitely worried about me. We were in lockdown and I kind of just stuck it out. I just had to make a decision because if I left, I would have lost my working visa. “COVID was taking out the city and it was definitely uncomfortable, but I have a

lot of Australian friends here and we were all kind of in the same boat, sticking it out together. That definitely helped during that time, that we were so far away from home dealing with the same things.” After having closed due to COVID, the museum recently re-opened and it’s business as usual. Ms Collingwood has no plans to return to Australia now she’s riding a wave of success in the Big Apple. “The reason I love it so much now is I’ve met so many great people,” she says. “The city is very dirty and not as glamorous as the movies paint it, but the people I’ve met here have been super inspiring. New York is full of creative people. “At first I was shocked by the go-go-go 24/7 work culture they have here, but I think I’m used to it now. When I went back to the Sunshine Coast in February, I went wow, it’s so slow. I found myself getting bored. It’s very exciting here because there’s always something going on and always something to do. I’m never bored and I kind of do like the fast pace now.” She does admit to missing the Sunny Coast beaches and weather and says New York winters are the longest she’s ever experienced. “I miss my family, my dogs, the beach and the warm weather, but I feel like I’ll stay here a few more years yet. I just really love it and I have so many opportunities here.”

WHICH FACE MASK AND WHY?

D

uring the COVID-19 pandemic, the advice on wearing masks varies depending on the situation in your local area. It is quite possible that in the near future Sunshine Coast residents will be advised to wear masks when visiting crowded venues such as shopping centres or when using taxis or public transport. There are basically three common types of face masks available from pharmacies. These are: Firstly, P2N95 masks, which are the top-of-the-range disposable masks that give you the maximum protection if fitted correctly. Secondly, surgical masks, which are typically worn by nursing or medical staff. They are much more economical than

other masks, but must be worn only once. Lastly, fabric masks. Typically, they are more comfortable to wear but need to be washed between each use with soap and 60-degree hot water. It is important to remember that based on the current evidence, social distancing is the most effective way to avoid being infected, along with 20-second soapy hand washing or using hand sanitiser. Masks are a bit like seat belts in cars – they do not guarantee survival, but they certainly improve your chances of survival. This is because they reduce the likelihood of you breathing in the COVID-19-infected droplets from people coughing, sneezing, talking or breathing. The media routinely provides figures on identified cases, hospitalisations, deaths and recoveries. Maybe ‘recoveries’ should be identified as ‘survivors’, as many people who ‘recover’ from COVID-19 do not return to their previous state of health. Protecting yourself and your loved ones, friends and colleagues from COVID-19 is really important, as it is not only deaths from respiratory collapse, but also the possible ongoing associated kidney, heart and brain complications that may afflict the survivors. Masks can assist in preventing cross-infection if worn as they are designed to be worn and fitted properly.

HOW TO MANAGE YOUR EMOTIONS

F

ear and anxiety about COVID-19 can be overwhelming for many reasons. Knowing how to cope with these stressors can help make you stronger. Stress is a nervous system response to a perceived threat, designed to protect us from harm by enabling us to quickly fight, freeze or escape from the threat. The stress response causes our body to speed up and become tense and alert. Systems that are not immediately essential (like immunity) are largely shut down. After the threat passes, our nervous system ‘should’ switch back to a state of calmness. However, through repetitive, negative thoughts and emotions, we keep our stress response switched on. When we ‘get stuck’ in stress, our energy is drained,

CALOUNDRA

our immune system is compromised and we are more vulnerable to mental and physical disease. When we feel calm, we activate our parasympathetic nervous system (PNS), which enables us to rest, regenerate and digest our food. Emotional management is key to activating our PNS. An effective, evidence-based way to replace fear and anxiety, with calmness and managed concern, is a HeartMath technique called Care Focus.

CARE FOCUS 1. Breathing at a slow, relaxed pace, pretend you’re breathing through your heart and imagine that you’re calming your mind and emotions with each breath. 2. As you breathe, visualise mental and emotional calm and poise streaming into your mind and into all your cells. Hold a conscious intention in your heart to change feelings of anxiety or fear into managed concern. Practise will increase your capacity to maintain care and compassion. 3. Finally, radiate compassionate, care and calm into your environment to help reduce fear and make smarter choices from an attitude of managed concern. I encourage you to practise this care focus for five minutes each day to maintain good health.

A CLASSIC READ

Stuck for a new spring read? It’s time to settle down with a literary classic. Even if you’ve read these titles before, they are well worth revisiting.

LOCAL BOOK STORES The Little Book ook No Nook, k Shop 5, 4-6 Little Main Street, Palmwoods 1. The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Published as a ‘shilling shocker’, Robert Louis Stevenson’s dark psychological fantasy gave birth to the idea of the split personality. The story of respectable Dr Jekyll’s strange association with the ‘damnable young man’ Edward Hyde; the hunt through London for a killer; and the final revelation of Hyde’s true identity is a chilling exploration of humanity’s basest capacity for evil. The other stories in this volume also testify to Stevenson’s inventiveness in the Gothic tradition: Olalla is a tale of vampirism and tainted family blood, and The Body Snatcher is a gruesome fictionalisation of the exploits of the notorious Burke and Hare.

2. War and Peace

3. The Dickens Boy

4. To Kill A Mockingbird

5. Ghost Stories

In War and Peace Leo Tolstoy entwines grand themes – conflict and love, birth and death, free will and fate – with unforgettable scenes of 19th century Russia, to create a magnificent epic of human life. At a glittering society party in St Petersburg in 1805, conversations are dominated by the prospect of war. Terror swiftly engulfs the country as Napoleon’s army marches on Russia, and the lives of three young people are changed forever. The stories of quixotic Pierre, cynical Andrey and impetuous Natasha interweave with a huge cast, from aristocrats and peasants to soldiers and Napoleon himself.

The 10th child of Charles Dickens, Edward Bulwer Lytton Dickens, known as Plorn, had consistently proved unable ‘to apply himself ’ to school or life. So aged 16, he is sent, as his brother Alfred was before him, to Australia. Plorn arrives in Melbourne in late 1868 carrying a terrible secret. He has never read a word of his father’s work. He is sent out to a large station in remotest New South Wales to learn to become a man, and a gentleman stockman, from the most diverse and toughest of companions. This is Tom Keneally in his most familiar terrain – taking historical figures and events and reimagining them with verve, compassion and humour.

Atticus Finch is a lawyer defending a black man falsely charged with the rape of a white girl in Harper Lee’s classic novel. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man’s struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much. To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story, an anti-racist novel, a historical drama of the Great Depression and a sublime example of the Southern writing tradition.

‘Still as the night was, the mysterious population of the distant moonlit woods was not yet lulled to rest.’ The aim of a good ghost story is to make the blood freeze, pleasurably, and this MR James achieves to perfection in these wonderful stories. His most atmospheric settings include English country houses and gardens, the north end of the churchyard, the yew maze in Mr Humphreys and his Inheritance and the unforgettable train journey in Casting the Runes. To each of these stories he brings an eye for the telling detail, an imaginative twist and a narrative tone that is, at least to begin with, urbane and reassuring.

At IFYS Foster Care we know that belonging is fundamental to the human experience and we all have an essential need to be loved, cared for and to belong.As humans, we need to belong. To one another, to our friends and families, to our culture and country, to our world. Belonging is primal, fundamental to our sense of happiness and well-being. When a child is brought into care they can be confused, scared and unsure of what the future holds; they can feel that they don’t belong. At IFYS Foster Care we acknowledge that children and young people need to belong, they need to feel that they really matter to somebody, somewhere. A connection with at least one caring adult can make a huge difference in the life of a child or young person. In the words of Rita Pierson - Every child deserves a champion - an adult who never gives up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.

MY OPINION

HOW TO MAKE MAGIC SPAG BOL

HIDDEN MOTIVES

When Sami Muirhead checked in with friends to find out what ingredients they added to their spag bol, she found some surprising ideas.

Kyle Kimball wonders if current government decision-making is underpinning the principles of democracy and if not, what is?

S

paghetti bolognaise is as universally loved as the Hemsworth brothers. Old-school spaghetti is really the heart and soul of comfort cuisine. It takes the gold medal every time when it comes to nurturing the body and spirit. I take great pride in my spaghetti recipe, which has morphed over the years. I take a laissez-faire cooking approach and usually drink a few wines as I cook up my strange spaghetti and throw in some rogue ingredients along the way. I always play Frank Sinatra’s tunes and think I am Martha Stewart, even though this is the only dish I cook that my kids actually enjoy eating. Lady Gaga announced this week she pours rosé wine into her special spaghetti bolognaise recipe and even the odd actual rose petal. So, I asked my friends what their secret ingredient is. The answers were crazy and creative, and some were so outrageous they even made me feel a little anxious. Sandy puts good quality dark chocolate in her secret batch. My husband likes to put lashings of apple sauce on the finished product, as it is a Swiss throwback from his family heritage. Candice adds a sneaky splash or two of her hubby’s special aged Irish whisky. Bonkers indeed, but I am going to try it. Balsamic vinegar and Vegemite had stacks of nominations, with friends

swearing by both ingredients for that next level result. Susan is all class and adds Persian feta right at the end to give the sauce more creaminess. Courtney adds chilli and fresh parmesan cheese. Yes please! Melisa swears by extra brown sugar and using beef and pork mince in the one batch. Paula and Kellie use saffron powder to make the bolognaise a different colour. Jodie swears by blended Brussels sprouts for the nutritional win. Worcestershire sauce and eggs are two more popular additions to pour into the family recipe. So, it seems we all take liberties with our spag bol and the twists keep on coming. Sally loves sweet potato in her mince mixture and says it makes it creamier. Debbie says the main rule she adheres to is cooking it in a slow cooker and letting it simmer for at least four hours. Luke claims he pours in orange juice while Joanne swears by milk and soy sauce. Spinach, hot sauce, kidney beans and bone broth all got nominations. Trena Jane adds anchovies to her sauce and Christine sprinkles in cinnamon and Tabasco sauce. Zoey says she adds bananas! So at the end of the day, I guess we all love the sport of putting a little twist on our family recipes but Julie wins the day with her admission that if you make the spaghetti with love, it always tastes a little more magical.

‘leaders’ that they will not put the economy over the lives of the public is disingenuous in the extreme. Governments put an economic cost on all our lives, daily. They build roads knowing that people will die upon them. All governments provide only a certain level of funding to our health system, relying on the ‘cost’ as a justification for not spending more. What motivates all power is retaining power. I have been told that the primary driver of the government decisions to

“Governments put an economic cost on all our lives, daily” enforce quarantine and lockdowns is the capacity of our hospitals to treat coronavirus patients. As soon as the infection rate exceeds hospital capacity, the lockdowns are brought back into place. Good, caring, government or simply expedient politicians seeking to avoid the true consequence of years of gutting the health system? It may be that the actions taken by our governments are warranted. But the simple idea we can just trust our leaders to do the right thing for us, as opposed to themselves, cannot be supported by history. Who really trusts politicians?

“E

xperience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government, those entrusted with power have, in time and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny” – Thomas Jefferson. What a year it has been. Flashpoint in the South China Sea, trade wars, constant threat of terrorism… and then there is the pandemic. Hourly updates on infection and death rates. Unprecedented levels of government scrutiny and interference in our daily lives. The 24/7 focus on coronavirus has allowed governments the world over to impose laws that eight months ago would have seen any democratic government booted from office. A cynic might suggest those laws are being used to ensure incumbent governments are re-elected. I do wonder whether the same, palpable, fear of coronavirus would exist if the reports had more context. What do we have to compare with the numbers we are being fed daily? Numbers of road deaths? How many folk pass daily from heart disease? Domestic violence was the topic du jour this time last year. Much handwringing, but not much action. Certainly not the decisiveness we have seen from our governments of late. Nor the willingness of the wider community to accept the level of discipline of itself required to effect real change. And the tripe peddled by all our

SUPPORTING SUNSHINE COAST BUSINESS WOMEN

Mervat Quirke, Feda Adra & Craig McPherson

ith the annual Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network Awards unable to proceed, the network didn’t let the setback stop them from celebrating our female business community. The Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network (SCBWN) spent August celebrating the winners dating back to 1998. A social media showcase filled their online platforms, with quotes shared from each winner. As a sponsor of an award category and a written judge for the last five years, dealer principal at Pacific Motor Group, Craig McPherson says he was disappointed that

factors beyond our control meant the awards had to be postponed this year. However, he is grateful to have been involved in the process in past years. “I often joke that it is my CPD (continuing professional development) hours for the year. Reading through the award applications is like reviewing case studies in a business management degree. “The submissions are filled with amazing stories of resilience and persistence to get their businesses to the point that the founder feels like it’s time to celebrate,” Mr McPherson says. Even in his few years of judging, Mr McPherson says he has seen some exceptional nominees and winners. “One of my favourite things to do during the judging process is to keep a list of all the ‘one liners’. I find I make good use of these in my own business over the next 12 months,” he says. As he reflects on the financial year just gone, Mr McPherson says it was one to test your resolve if you were in business. He applauds and supports all those who are working hard to keep their business going or starting something afresh.

INNOVATION TEAM GROWS TO DELIVER A BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR BE A new appointment will help continue the leading role Be plays as an innovator in community services in Queensland. Dr Amanda Clacy has joined the team at Be (formerly ComLink) in the newly created role of community and wellbeing programs architect. Dr Clacy joins Be from the Sunshine Coast Mind and Neuroscience Thompson Institute, where she managed the Alliance for Suicide Prevention. Be innovator in residence Michael Doneman, says the new role will support Be’s health and wellness strategy to improve lives and help planning for the new $24-million Vitality Village health and wellness project in Birtinya, which opens next year. “Be is ready to flourish and tackle significant health and community challenges. Our team has the chance to think and do things differently to foster innovation and better outcomes for people. I welcome Amanda to our wonderful team at Be,” Mr Doneman says. Dr Clacy says she is delighted to join Be at a vital time. “Be has an incredible reputation for breaking down barriers to ensure their clients receive the best service and

support – and that’s a mission that I wanted very much to join,” Ms Clacy says. “With my strong background in research and community mental health, I hope to build an evidence base for the services provided at Be, while also using this evidence to continue to grow and develop our community programs. “My aim is to work with people from across Be’s regions to design meaningful programs that support the wellbeing of our clients, volunteers, and staff. “Through my experience in health research, science communication, and community engagement, I hope to ensure that our health and wellness initiatives are person-centred, evidence-driven, accessible, and inclusive.”

BUSINESS EXPERTS

My ex and I have reached agreement, now what? Reaching a financial agreement with your ex on how to split your matrimonial assets and liabilities is a great first step in moving forward post separation, but is it that simple? There are many things to consider when reaching an agreement including jointly owned real estate, superannuation, shares and loans. An informal document written down and signed by the parties is not binding and will not prevent a later request for further property adjustment. Not formalising your agreement correctly can have other unintended outcomes. You may continue to live separated under the same roof, or to work in the same business, but with time the value of assets will fluctuate and human nature is such that each party usually perceives their contribution to preserving assets post separation differently. You can formalise your agreement by entering into a correctly drafted financial agreement complying with the Family Law Act, or apply to the Family Court for Court orders made in the terms you have agreed. People can and do change their minds over time. Formalising your agreement will provide you with peace of mind and certainty with your financial position moving forward.

Have you been left out of a Will? This is the first in our series answering common questions about Estate and Probate disputes. Q: Can I challenge a Will if I have been left out, or named in it but treated unfairly? A: Yes, but only if you are: a spouse, including a defacto; child; or a dependant of the deceased. Q: Do time periods apply? A: Yes. Step 1 – A challenger must give notice to the executor of the intention to challenge within six months of the deceased’s death. Step 2 – A challenger must commence proceedings within nine months of the deceased’s death. Q: Is my claim strong or weak? A: It depends. The threshold question is the level of need of the challenger. If a challenger demonstrates financial need, how much of the estate they ought receive involves considering: 1. the size of the estate; 2. the nature of the relationship between the challenger and the deceased; and 3. other “competing” claims.

Getting grant ready The right business grant applications can secure the funding you need to achieve your goals, but preparation is key. To ensure your business is best placed to take advantage of grant opportunities, follow this seven-step process: 1: Consider your readiness for a business grant application – have a plan that supports your goals. 2. Identify a suitable project that meets relevant grant eligibility requirements. 3. Understand the detail to stand out in the application process by mapping your application to grant criteria. 4. Prepare and plan for success. This will ensure your business has much of the supporting documentation required. 5. Maximise your funding potential by including all eligible expenditure. 6. Understand and prepare your financial co-contribution. 7. Work with your advisor. Achieving your business goals requires both a plan and funding to implement that plan. Grants remain a wonderful opportunity to do just that, but seek professional advice before applying. For further information on how you can access grant funding, please contact Dianne Brown on 0404 016 808.

How to use ‘good’ debt to build wealth Contrary to what some believe, not all debt is bad – in fact, debt can be a good thing. Structured and leveraged correctly, it can compound your net worth over time and help you build a financially secure future. Taking out a loan to invest in property, or start a profitable business, are examples of ‘good’, or productive debt. Both have the potential to make you money and come with tax benefits, too. Not only does an investment property generate rental income to help pay off the loan, it also appreciates in value over the longer term and with compounding growth, this can be substantial. ‘Bad’ (unproductive) debt, on the other hand, is used to buy anything that will decrease in value and won’t earn you any money, including car loans, personal loans and loans for holidays or to maintain a lifestyle. Credit card debt is one of the worst kinds to have, as it’s repaid at high interest rates and can lead to careless spending. Nobody is saying we shouldn’t enjoy our lives – just try to avoid borrowing money to do it. As successful property investors will tell you, it’s all about knowing how to harness the power of good debt to build wealth.

SPRING FLORALS

home

reimagined Spring has officially arrived, and now is the time to revamp your interiors with fresh florals and botanical prints. Try something different this year and experiment with shades, textures and shapes reminiscent of the stunning Australian landscape.

Floral cushi cushions are perfect for spring, but try these Australiana designs from Pillow Talk for something different. Pictured is the Muse Acacia Cushion and the Muse Mallee Cushion. Take your cues from Australian natives when choosing your indoor greenery and floral arrangements. We love this Australian Wildflowers Wattle Pot from Adairs.

Add a ray of sunshine to your bedroom with the Shannon Fricke Love & Marigold Quilt Cover Set from m Domayne.

TIP: Spring is all about flowers. Property stylist and interior designer Justine Wilson says to make a real statement, use vases or vessels in multiple sizes and group them together – the different heights will create a pretty vignette with complementary flower types or mixed bunches.

Introduce some me spring hues to your our home with ha colourful arm chair hair or two scattered red around. We love the blush pink shade of the Lola Occasional nal Chair in Tea Rose ose from Early Settler. er.

Add some native botanical flair to your kitchen with the Home Republic Apollo Mustard Banksia Tray from Adairs.

A quick way to freshen up interiors is with some bright new wall art. We love the Mercer + Reid Yellow Waratah print from Adairs.

Now’s the time to freshen up your outdoor areas and pool area with some new greenery, stylish new outdoor furniture and perhaps a water feature. Sean Lynch from PoolFab Pool & Landscape Creations suggests hiring a landscaper to help you design your garden and organise your outdoor space. “One of the benefits of hiring a landscaper to design your backyard is their extensive plant knowledge,” Mr Lynch says. “A quality landscaper will be able to select the right plants for your needs, whether you’re after enhanced visual appeal, optimal privacy, or reduced maintenance. “Often, selecting plants that require little upkeep is the best way to accommodate your lifestyle. A great time-saving solution for outdoor areas with limited space is a green wall. These vertical-style gardens work well in tight spaces and allow greater flexibility in planting styles. “Their ability to purify the air and regulate humidity makes them a great addition to any environment. For a green wall full of foliage, cascading plants such

as various types of ferns, ivy, dichondra and wattle will do a great job of filling out the space. For flowering options, try a selection of petunias, sweet alyssum, begonias and geraniums. For something that’s even easier to maintain, opt for a succulent garden. Succulents are a great choice because they are resilient.” Mr Lynch says he tries to use a mix of water-wise plants with year-round colour and foliage. “A combination of low-level ground covers, middle-height feature plants and taller varieties will give depth and height to the space.” It’s important to ensure you select the right mulch and edging to retain water, reduce weeds and frame the space you’ve created. “Our ethos is to offer eco-smart packages from concept to completion,” Mr Lynch says. “We aim to create water-wise and energy-efficient spaces with reduced chemical use throughout the home.” “When it comes to plant selection, opt for evergreen varieties such as agave, yukkas, pandanus, cycads and gingers, which require minimal water, chemicals and energy to survive.

If you’re thinking about refreshing your garden, making it more water-wise is a good idea. Judicious use of pebbles and stones in unplanted areas of your garden can stop it losing moisture and can help the soil around the plants retain moisture, reducing the need for watering. Maroochy Sand and Gravel can help you choose the right product.

Now is the time to get out into the garden and pool areas and give them a bit of a revamp for spring. All it takes is a few sleek, modern pieces to radically transform the look and appeal of your outdoor areas.

GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)

Restless rams are ready to rumble, so all forms of physical exercise are favoured this week – the more vigorous and adrenalin-pumping, the better. You’re also full of enthusiasm about a work decision or a close relationship.

The new moon energises your entertainment, romance and friendship sector. Clear your throat, polish your maracas and find yourself a captive audience as you perform like a pro, or appreciate the creative efforts of others.

This week, impulsive Jupiter squares your patron planet Mercury. Just remember: there’s a fine line between being spontaneous and successful and being hasty and foolhardy. Aim to be a calculated risk-taker rather than a restless scatterbrain.

Communication is the buzz word this week. It’s a good time to improve close relationships and community connections as the new moon, Pluto and Saturn boost your people skills. Do your best to capitalise on lucky opportunities that come your way.

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

With Venus visiting your sign, you’re in the mood for an extravagant spending spree. But are you living in Financial Fantasy Land? This week’s new moon in Virgo motivates you to shake up your attitude to money, as you strive to be more sensible.

This week the sun and moon link up in your sign, which boosts concentration and sharpens your eye for hidden details. It’s a terrific time to study, solve a puzzle, uncover a secret or find an item that’s been lost. Enjoy exploring various options.

Mars is reversing through your partnership zone until November 14. A close relationship could feel as if it’s stuck in limbo or even going backwards. Plenty of patience and deft diplomacy will get you through.

An idea you have could really take off, but you must understand and accommodate the needs of others, not just your own. The sun/Pluto trine is also terrific for spreading powerful waves of influence within your local or online community.

KNOWING THE PROPERTY CLOCK Picking the perfect time to buy or sell property isn’t rocket science. WORDS: Layne Whitburn.

T

he Sunshine Coast property clock is ticking its way towards a peak in the market, providing investors a boost of confidence on the tail end of the pandemic. Whether you’re an experienced property investor or a first-time homebuyer, timing the market is key. The property clock is a popular model used to track a market’s cycle. The cycle starts at 12 o’clock, signifying the peak of market, and makes it way clockwise through the stages of a decline, bottom of market, recovery and rising market. Picking the perfect time to get in and out of the market is essential to getting the most value from your investment. As a general rule, the best time to buy is at six o’clock when the market is low, while the best time to sell is at 12 o’clock when the market is at its peak. The Sunshine Coast’s residential market is currently approaching a market peak sitting around 10 o’clock, according to the latest report from property valuation and advisory group Herron Todd White. The report suggests low stock levels coupled with all-time low interest rates, alongside government stimulus packages

are responsible for the increasing demand for Sunshine Coast real estate. One of the directors at Herron Todd White Sunshine Coast, Stuart Greensill, says the Coast’s desirable lifestyle has seen the region’s market come out on top during the current economic situation. “When we look at the impacts of COVID, there’s going to be winners and losers,” Mr Greensill says. “Fortunately for the Coast, we are experiencing a win.” “Many discussions I have had with agents up and down the entire east coast have pointed out how Australian’s are coming to terms with health lockdowns becoming the new norm. Queensland is a very desirable location for many people down south,” Mr Greensill says.

“With Melbourne entering their second lockdown, many Victorians are at their wit’s end… and with the beautiful weather we experience here on the Sunshine Coast, you can see why it’s such a desirable place to relocate.” The latest border figures show more than one million travellers have applied for border passes to enter into Queensland since the chief health officer implemented the Queensland Border Declaration Pass on July 10. “We’re already seeing an increase of traffic along Mooloolaba Esplanade and even further away in the hinterland towns of Maleny and Montville,” Mr Greensill says. “To think one million people across Australia have applied to enter into

Queensland is massive, many of whom are chasing the coastal lifestyle the Sunshine Coast has to offer.” Mr Greensill says the change to working arrangements has also been a big drive for many people living and working in the city, allowing more people to shift into a home office environment on the Sunshine Coast. “Effectively, what’s happening on that front is the Coast market is opening up to people from Brisbane and other areas who are no longer restricted to living and working in the city,” Mr Greensill says. “Also, with the Coast offering high internet speeds just like the capital cities, it’s a major drawcard for people looking to shift their work space and find a healthy work/life balance.” Moving forward, there are some concerns as to how the property market may respond to the ending of government stimulus packages as well as the upcoming state election towards the end of the year. “You can never fully predict what will happen to the property clock, there are still some clouds on the horizon,” Mr Greensill says. “That’s why it’s important when investing in property, to stick to the fundamentals.”

Young Gun Coaster Debuts Big Leagues WORDS: BAYLEY OLSON

T

he Sunshine Coast’s next sporting superstar may have been unveiled last month. Home-grown talent Sean Farrell showed his style as he was making his debut for the Queensland Reds in a 19–3 win over the Melbourne Rebels at Suncorp Stadium. After being handed a Reds Developing Squad contract in 2019, Mr Farrell was elevated to Queensland’s wider training squad for the 2020 Super Rugby season. Mr Farrell is a product of the Queensland pathway; he represented his state and country at school level and was a member of the Queensland U20s squad in 2017. After getting his first taste of the National Rugby Championship (NRC) in the same year for Bond University Queensland Country, Mr Farrell made the switch to Brisbane City in 2018 and was selected in 2019, for the city’s squad. But he says his sporting career really took off in 2013, when he moved from his hometown to Brisbane Boys College (BBC). “I got a scholarship to BBC for grade 10, 11, and 12,” Mr Farrell says. “It was pretty full on, but it was basically what I needed just to realise I could actually make it in footy.”

Mr Farrell’s father has always supported him and he attributes this support as one of the main reasons he plays today. “I’ve got to give a huge props to my pop actually, he always loved footy as well and loved union, so I really got more into union because he liked it so much. “He always used to take me to footy games and trainings and pick me up from school to take me to a footy field, and he’d always be giving me hints and tips along the way.” “My family are a huge support network for me, like most families they’ve got your back no matter what. So even if I was working in a factory for the next 30 years, I think they’d still love me just as much as when I made my debut.” Mr Farrell admits he still feels nervous before any big game and his debut was no exception. “On game day I sort of overthink things a bit and get a bit nervous, so it’s a bit unorthodox but I like to use a Rubik’s Cube to keep my hands busy.” Having been named off the bench in multiple matches without success, Mr Farrell could not believe when he finally got

the message that he was due on the field. “My first time running on for the team was a little bit surreal, I’d been named on the bench a few times before COVID and

never got the opportunity to run on so it’d been eating at me a little bit, but as soon as I got the call and told to warm up I just couldn’t stop smiling. “I literally just couldn’t stop until I ran out and thought to myself, time to do want I’m supposed to do, what I want to do, it was a sensational feeling.” The Reds are a close second for the season on the Super Rugby ladder and Mr Farrell thinks the camaraderie the players possess could help them win it all. “It’s sort of a cliche, but all the boys have sort of come up the ranks together, we have a very young team.” “I grew up with Tate (McDermott) since we were under-7 nippers at Mooloolaba. “So yeah, I’ve known multiple guys now for many years and we all played in rep sides together and that makes it a very tight-knit team.” “We’re coming up to finals now and it could be a really good opportunity for us to take out the Australian Super Rugby comp, so I’m keen as a bean just looking forward to the rest of the season.” The Queensland Reds will begin their finals efforts this weekend to qualify for the grand final on September 19.

A fast flash of Lightning wins the day Sunshine Coast Lightning have come closer to a fourth consecutive Super Netball final series after a 67–65 victory over the Giants on the weekend. It was up to Steph Wood to shoot the winning shot at SC Stadium to secure the Lightning's seventh win of the season. The Lightning stay in third position on the ladder following the win, equal with the second-placed NSW Swifts on 28 points and six points behind Melbourne.

Sunshine Coast Women’s sailing on the rise Following the success of the inaugural Mooloolaba Yacht Club’s (MYC) Women’s Winter Regatta in 2019, MYC is now inviting crews from around the state – and the country (COVID restrictions permitting) – to participate in the 2020 event. Initially scheduled for late June, COVID restrictions saw the event postponed. It will now be held over the weekend of October 31 to November 1, 2020 as part of the club’s program to encourage more women into sailing. Last year saw teams from as far away as Newcastle and Brisbane competing, reflecting a strong interest in promoting women’s sailing among east coast sailing clubs. The regatta will see two days of short-course, ‘around the buoys’ fleet racing on Mooloolaba’s beautiful Mooloolah River, utilising the club’s Olympic class Elliott 6 fleet of keelboats. “Last year saw some great competition and exciting tactical racing across the two-day event,” says MYC women’s sailing captain, Tanya Kelly. “We had a broad range of skill levels and it was fantastic to see the support and camaraderie within – and between – the different crews. We’re looking forward to recreating that atmosphere this year.” The event is open to eight teams of three to four crew and entry is open from September 21.

Organisers said the regatta has grown from – and is integral to -– the club’s women’s skills development program, which has seen more than 100 women sign up for sailing at the club since the program’s inception in 2017. “We are looking forward to sharing our idyllic sailing venue with an enthusiastic, like-minded group of female sailors, welcoming back teams from last year as well as new contenders,” says Ms Kelly. “Even if you haven’t finalised your crew, send us an expression of interest. Individuals keen to sail, please let us know and we will put you in touch with a team that may need additional crew.” The Mooloolaba Women’s Regatta is run in association with SheSails, the Australian sailing campaign running in yacht clubs across the country to grow pathways for women to enter the sport of sailing. Additional sponsorship and prizes have been supplied by Next Property Group, Helly Hansen and Nauti-Bags Australia.

Juniors back in the water The Kozii Iron Challenge comes to Mooloolaba Beach on Saturday, September 19 from 8am. The Kozii Iron Challenge is a fun-filled day that celebrates the exciting sport of Junior Surf Lifesaving. The challenge is a fast-paced event, with music, games, prizes, and competition. Hosted at Mooloolaba Beach, it is the ideal venue for young athletes and the lifesavers of the future to test their board, swim and running abilities. Junior Surf Lifesavers from across the Sunshine Coast will compete, and the event is open to Under 9s through to Under 17s. “This will be the first opportunity these junior lifesavers have had to compete since the 2019/20 state titles were unfortunately cancelled back in March, due to COVID-19,” event cofounder and organiser, Chris Redler says. “The kids are really excited and can’t wait to get back to doing what they love.” The Kozii Iron Challenge has been an annual event on the surf sports calendar for the last three years and is growing in

popularity. Sunshine Coast Council division four councillor, Joe Natoli supports the event, which helps to showcase the local region and bring in families who support local industry. The Kozii Iron Challenge event is proudly supported by the Sunshine Coast council’s grants program. The Kozii Iron Challenge is a roundrobin event that ensures no eliminations, with all competitors guaranteed three tough iron races. The male and female who accumulates the most points in their age group becomes the Kozii Iron Challenge age champion. “We are really excited to be hosting the Kozii Iron Challenge at Mooloolaba Beach again this year. It is a fantastic event and a great way for kids to start off the summer competition season. The day is an exciting event of sportsmanship and non-stop fun on Mooloolaba Beach,” Matthew Horder Mooloolaba Nippers JAC says. This event will open the 2020-21 surf sports season and will be held in the morning, with the first race starting at 8am and presentations at around 12:30pm.

t is a book 10 years in the making and so full of history you will need a “wheelbarrow” just to move it around. Buderim-Palmwoods Heritage Tramway president Helene Cronin last month released her book Timber, Trains,

Turmoil – A History of Buderim and its Tramway. The book delves into the town’s rich history and is something she hopes will preserve the legacy of the tramway, and Buderim, for generations to come. “It’s 10 years of research and a

culmination of photographs, historical documents and memoirs,” Ms Cronin says. “It started off as notes for me to learn more about the tramway and then turned into this.” Ms Cronin says she did not want all this history being collected and archived in a box. “I was digging around for information from old newspaper clippings and going through what people remembered. “The hardest part was getting it into some sort of order.” She says it was an “entertaining and rewarding process” and the book covers everything right up to the most recent debate to have the Krauss locomotive publicly displayed in Buderim. The book launch was held at Buderim War Memorial Hall with Buderim Foundation chairman Russell Stitz. The book was made possible thanks to a grant from the Buderim Foundation and Mr Stitz congratulated Ms Cronin on her passion to compile the history. Buderim-Palmwoods Heritage Tramway is now hoping to secure a grant from Sunshine Coast Council to have 50 more copies of the book printed to be distributed to local schools, museums and libraries. There is a copy of the book at Maroochydore Library and Ms Cronin says people who want to put their name down for one when more are printed can email tram@buderim.qld.au.

Men’s Shed funding Mooloolah Valley will soon be home to its own men’s shed, fulfilling a huge community demand. Newly appointed Mooloolah Community Men’s Shed secretary Kim Gebbie, affectionately known as ‘Mik’, says while details are still being finalised, this community dream has been a long time coming. “We are very excited and can’t wait,” she says. “There has been a committee of about 15 people who have been working on this for about five years.” She says an initial survey conducted several years ago proved the demand for the shed, with 300 men showing their interest. The announcement comes after the federal government pledged $250,000 to build the new facility thanks to Member for Fisher Andrew Wallace’s close work with the Mooloolah community. “Men’s sheds are an incredible source of companionship and community spirit for Sunshine Coast men,” Mr Wallace says. “Once we have the funding through, we can then start the construction work on the shed,” Ms Gebbie adds. “We are planning to turn the sod at the end of the month.” The new shed will be built behind the Mooloolah Community Centre at 42 Bray Road.

One door closes but another to open WORDS: CAITLIN ZERAFA

A

nother Sunshine Coast business has fallen victim to the hardships of COVID-19 with Piglets Cranny closing its doors last month. The popular restaurant and live music venue in Nambour opened just last year but owner Gabrielle Reinhardt says the financial costs of running the business have been mounting. “Yes, Piglets Cranny has shut her doors for the last time and wishes Nambour all the best,” she says. “I am extremely proud to have opened Piglets in such an amazing town, but alas, ongoing COVID-19 restrictions have made it impossible to meet my financial obligations, especially the high lease costs.” The venue had hosted a string of local musicians on their road to fame. “I am so pleased to have been the venue for such talented musicians,” Ms Reinhardt says, adding that despite the closure of Piglets Cranny, this is not the end, as she has plans for a first-of-its-kind venue in Nambour.

“Fortunately, all is not lost,” she says. “In partnership with Big Audio, I am opening a new venue opposite the Nambour council building. “Combining my experience gained from Piglets Cranny and the vast music industry experience of Phil Turvey [from Big Audio], we will open a fully licensed new venue offering great live entertainment with an outdoor licensed drinking and eating area.” The venue, to be named No.10, is expected to open later this year. “It will be the first real indoor/ outdoor bar/live entertainment venue in Nambour,” Ms Reinhardt says. She has thanked locals for their continued support during what has been a tough year. “I want to thank everyone for helping me make Piglets Cranny a success. “Nambourians are incredibly loyal, generous, big-hearted first-class Australians. I am so glad I chose Nambour to be my family home when returning from overseas.”

USC’s five-star scores The University of the Sunshine Coast has again scored five-star ratings in key areas of student satisfaction. The 2021 Good Universities Guide awarded five stars to USC for teaching quality (for the 15th year), overall experience (ninth year), learning resources (fifth year), skills development and social equity.

Please stay safe With double the amount of public nuisance fines issued in the Sunshine Coast Safe Night Precinct areas in Maroochydore, Mooloolaba and Caloundra than anywhere else in the region, police are urging revellers to stay safe on nights out. To help everyone return home safety, police are urging people to be respectful and turn the other cheek against alcohol-fuelled violence.

New career thanks STEMM

R

eceiving a nursing science degree this year was a crowning moment for Tabitha Kidd, whose academic experience involved overcoming many challenges. Now working at Nambour General Hospital as a graduate nurse, the 32-yearold was able to complete her degree at

The University of the Sunshine Coast thanks to a program helping young mothers. The Supporting Teenagers with Education, Mothering and Mentoring (STEMM) program helps pregnant teenagers and young mothers complete subjects from USC’s Tertiary Preparation Pathway. “I received good grades at school and had always wanted to go to university, but I had to suddenly leave home when I was 14,” Ms Kidd says. She tried to stay in school for as long as possible but left in Year 11 to work full time. “I had always promised myself I would go back to studying but did not think that it would be possible with young children.” With two children under three, she joined the program in 2010 and studied part time while she and her partner raised their children on a single income. Ms Kidd wants others in a similar situation to know there is support available. “I tried to do it on my own,” she says. “But it was a big life lesson to know it is okay to reach out and let someone else help.” For details about STEMM, phone 5459 7333.

source so it doesn’t end up at the beach and in our oceans in the first place,” Cr O’Pray says. “If all we ever do is clean up, that’s all we’ll ever do – we need to think about actions we can take to stop this marine debris at the source. “The rubbish collected on their beach clean-up was weighed and sorted and will be entered into the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI).” Groups around the nation add to the AMDI database, recording the location, quantities and types of marine rubbish collected, to give an overview of the impact on beaches across the country. Cr O’Pray says the students also planted 200 native trees as part of the council’s BushCare Mates program. “BushCare Mates is a school conservation program that uses BushCare and tree planting to educate and inspire students to connect with their local environment while fostering a sense of community. “The trees planted at Marcoola will take five to 10 years to grow, providing long-term protection for our dunes from erosion and food and habitat for birds and wildlife.” Does your school have news?

Pick a berry or two With strawberry season in full swing, now is the time to enjoy these scrumptious delights and support some of our Sunshine Coast farms, such as Strawberry Fields at Palmview. Fun fact: Technically the strawberry is not a berry, but a member of the rose family.

Celebration time Maroochydore VIEW Club celebrated its 19th anniversary in August with members dressing in patriotic red, blue and white. “The speaker, Kym Stevens, educator and dance researcher, gave us an insight into the life, and dancing, on board the HMS Endeavour with Captain Cook and his crew on the first voyage of exploration and discovery,” a club statement says. The club sponsors 10 Smith Family Learning for Life students and actively fundraises for the charity.

A message from Fiona Simpson Member for Maroochydore

How do we encourage hope, aspiration and confidence for a generation of beautiful young people who worry about the future post-COVID-19? The question uppermost in my mind is how do we ensure we don’t lose this generation to hopelessness and long-term unemployment with all the problems that come with extended welfare dependency. I have so much admiration for the Headspace team who provide outstanding mental health support to young people on the Coast as well as the team at IFYS, school chappies and so many more. We must support them in supporting young people. We also must fight to rebuild the jobs and businesses which will provide pathways to careers and independence. Together with my federal colleague for Fairfax Ted O’Brien, I’m running a Jobs Forum on September 14 at Maroochydore Surf Club from 5.30pm to 6.30pm. It will tackle the questions about jobs and rebuilding business and we will hear from you about solutions. Bookings are essential at fionasimpson. com.au/jobs-forum.

Local sites get council protection Sunshine Coast Council has adopted a planning scheme amendment to protect the region’s cultural heritage values. Heritage portfolio councillor Rick Baberowski says there are now 231 local heritage places identified, including more places to represent post-World War II heritage and coastal urban settings. “The amendment will help to ensure the protection of iconic Sunshine Coast buildings, like the Maroochy River boathouse jetties on Bradman Avenue, as well as some of the earliest and best

examples of the high-rise apartment towers that marked the beginning of the Sunshine Coast’s emergence as a coastal tourism hub,” he says. “Another outstanding example of how this amendment provides broader and better protection for our historic postcontact cultural heritage is the new identification of a South Sea Islander stone wall and dwellings site in Buderim. This listing acknowledges the important contribution of South Sea Islanders to the development of our region.”

NightQuarter is coming WORDS: CAITLIN ZERAFA

B

irtinya’s newest evening attraction has been given the COVID-safe tick of approval with an announcement on the opening date expected in the coming weeks. NightQuarter Birtinya will bring a food and entertainment hub to the Sunshine Coast, and co-owner Michelle

Christoe says she wants the precinct to become a community of locals supporting locals. “NightQuarter was born with the idea of bringing community to life,” Ms Christoe says. “We are looking forward to getting the community out and having fun in a COVID-safe way.”

“We want this to be a place where community comes together to support local.” Originally opening the venue at Helensvale on the Gold Coast in 2015 before its closure in 2019, and the owner of Malt Shovel Taphouse at Birtinya, Ms Christoe admits this year has been tough. She says construction recently recommenced on the site next to Stockland Birtinya shopping centre and she is continually monitoring COVID changes. “We are forging ahead finally; there is light at the end of the tunnel.” Ms Christoe says the venue will include five stages, six bars, 32 food stalls and a selection of retail stores. A recent grant from the state government’s Play Local initiative is also helping them engage local musicians and performers. “We received $20,000 from Arts Queensland to go to booking local musicians,” Ms Christoe says. “We are big on incubating local talent – 100 per cent of the money from that grant will go to the artists.” The venue will also strive towards being environmentally friendly with a reuse and recycle theme. “We hope to bring back that old-style thinking of sustainable living,” Ms Christoe says. NightQuarter’s approved COVID-safe plan will allow 1500 people and includes a strict cleaning regime.

Art for the people Bringing community together is the theme of a community art project happening at the Glass House Mountains Neighbourhood Centre. The art competition attracted entries from all ages, who will help bring three cement blocks to life. “The artworks on the blocks are envisaged to bring the community together to create a vibrant, local feature that reflects the heart of the Glass House Mountains place and people over time, as an artistic time capsule,” a statement from the centre says. “The themes of the three art blocks are culture and/or the Glass House Mountains, farming/early settlement/Cobb and Co, and community now.” Locals have been painting the blocks over recent weeks, leaving their prints, marked with their names.

RSL branch moves

Mum’s show of strength WORDS: CAITLIN ZERAFA

A

Caloundra mother of two is proving you can balance motherhood and run a successful business after being named a finalist for the 2020 AusMumpreneur Awards. Chloe Kingsford runs StrengthCity gym, a dream that has grown from its humble beginnings in her single-car garage back in 2012. Living in News South Wales at the time, the gym expanded to a warehouse before Ms Kingsford sold up to move to the Sunshine Coast, opening her Caloundra gym in 2015. With a background in psychology and mental health, and, recently, women’s wellness coaching, Ms Kingsford provides a holistic approach to wellbeing. “I couple training with mindset wellness,” she says. “I try and lead by example and empower others. “As parents ourselves we see a lot of people struggle with weight loss and balancing family life. We give them the tools and the encouragement to live their best life for themselves and their children.”

Caloundra Panthers Junior president Michael Lane says despite COVID-19 setbacks, player registrations is increasing. “It’s been a tough year, but whilst we’ve had challenges, our junior numbers

have increased because people want to get out and be active,” he says. “Each week we have 45 kids attend Auskick, 180 boys and girls in our Juniors AFL as well as 30 Colts and 50 Seniors.” “This funding would allow us to update our facilities, making them more accessible and attractive for families and female athletes. State member for Caloundra Mark McArdle and LNP candidate for Caloundra Stuart Coward announced the funding.

Caloundra Preppies reach a big milestone

P

rep students at Caloundra City Private School recently celebrated 100 days of being in the classroom. A big year for the young learners, at a recent celebration the students shared what they love best about school. “I like maths, playing with my friends and show and share,” Heidi says. “I have learnt Letterland Friends and heaps of sight words.”

Prep student Spencer says: “I like doing my work and playing with my friends. “I have learnt letter-craft, making art like drawing a lion, learning how to write, starting to read and counting to 10 in Japanese.” While transitioning to Prep is an exciting milestone for families, it can be quite an overwhelming process and current parents have tips for new parents.

Caloundra City Private School students celebrate 100 days of Prep

Marilyn and Robert Paxevanos suggest having at least one parent across all the information. “Communication is a two-way street; you need to stay up to date with the emails they put out to help your children,” Mr Paxevanos says. Spencer’s mother Harley Usher suggests being confident about your child’s transition and trusting the teachers will settle them in and keep them happy and safe. “We wished we had known how much our children would love school and how well they would adapt to the new routine,” Mrs Usher says. Prep teacher Ashleigh Bennett says the school takes a growth mindset approach to help each student reach their learning milestones. “Our focus in Prep is for each child to have their own learning goals based on skills they are working towards achieving,” she says. “This is individualised for each student as they are aiming to beat their own achievements and not to focus on the skills of those around them.” Does your school have news to share?

Formerly known as ComLink, Be’s latest initiative gives a state-of-the-art platform to this vision of collaborative change. The vision recognises that collaboration, which builds on each organisation’s skills, can collectively improve people’s health and wellbeing. We again take the time to recognise that we are so lucky in our pocket of the Coast to have world-class facilities like the Kawana Sports Hub, Sunshine Coast Stadium, the hospital precinct and now the soon-to-be NightQuarter and Vitality Village. The Kawana Chamber has been busy this month with its membership drive. We have seen six new members come on board in August and have also welcomed a couple of new sponsors. Thank you to all sponsors and members. Without your support, we could not support you!

Kawana Aquatic Centre’s upgrades make a splash Kawana Aquatic Centre’s $1.69 million renovations have been unveiled. The renovations include new tiles and lane markings in the 50-metre pool worth $870,000, and $820,000 to replace the pool filtration. Kawana Aquatic Centre director of coaching Michael Sage says the new pool gives swimmers a world-class facility. “That really helps with accurate timing and race rehearsals, whether that’s through time trials or local competitions,” he says. “Having this facility will help our local swimmers, while further attracting athletes

from outside the region, helping to increase the standard of training and competition. Last year we were able to have former Open Water World Champion Jordan Wilamoski from the US come and train.” Mr Sage is an Australian open water swimming coach and has supported elite swimmers from this centre at the 2016 Rio Olympics as well as the 2017 and 2019 World Championships. The upgrades started ahead of schedule to allow much of the work to be completed while the centre was forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Strawberries from McMartin’s Strawberry Farm “I make the scones and you can have Devonshire tea with our jam.” She says the journey has not always been sweet, as the family has dealt with its fair share of hardships over the years, from unpredictable weather to needle sagas and, of course, coronavirus. “Farmers are pretty resilient; we take what’s thrown at us and deal with it. “If something goes wrong, we find other avenues.” McMartin’s Strawberry Farm plants

Surf Life Saving Queensland lifeguards Matt Hadland and Aaron Jones

A busy year for local heroes

L

$5.2 million annual investment is in local beach safety. Surf Life Saving Queensland Sunshine Coast lifeguard supervisor Rhys Drury says last year was a busy one for the red and yellow army of 107 lifeguards. “Being a lifeguard may seem like a dream job to many, but it’s also one we

ifeguards kept a watchful eye on more than seven million Sunshine Coast beachgoers last year, saving nearly 400 lives and carrying out 262,018 warnings. The Australian Lifeguard Service Beach Safety Report 2019-20 reveals just how crucial Sunshine Coast Council’s

take very seriously because beach safety awareness is a major priority for us,” Mr Drury says. “With spring just around the corner, we’re reminding beachgoers to please ensure they make responsible choices while they enjoy the beach.” Coolum lifeguard William Moore has spent 32 years patrolling Australian beaches, 24 of those locally. “When you reunite kids with their parents it’s a pretty special feeling,” Mr Moore says. “You know someone has got to go home to their loved ones and if you weren’t there, it may not have happened. “It’s an iconic, Australian thing to go to the beach. It’s part of our psyche. “That’s why I’m proud to do what I do,” Mr Moore adds. Council’s Economy Portfolio Councillor Jason O’Pray is thanking the “unsung heroes” that are lifeguards and life savers. “The 2019/20 season included two lifeguards at all times when the Boardwalk Beach and Yaroomba Beach towers were patrolled, plus extra lifeguards during the peak patrol season between September and May at Marcoola, Discovery, Twin Waters and Mudjimba.” View patrol times and locations at the Beachsafe website.

Sunshine Coast 2019/20 season fast facts: Total rescues – 389 (63 per cent were male, while 37 per cent were female) First aid treatments – 4806 Marine stings – 9661 Drownings – Two (both outside patrol times) Patrolled locations – 20

STRUGGLING WITH WEIGHT, FOGGY HEAD AND FATIGUE? UNDERACTIVE THYROID, BUT YOUR BLOOD TESTS SAY IT’S NORMAL? Dragging yourself through the day and fatigue has taken over? Is your brain a constant fog, and it takes all your effort to concentrate? Are you noticing hair loss, dull dry skin, brittle flaky nails? Having trouble remembering things? Your Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is in the normal range, but you’re experiencing all the symptoms of an underactive thyroid? Statistics show that females over 60 years are more likely to suffer from an underactive thyroid, however many people of all ages go undiagnosed. The frustration of experiencing the symptoms of an underactive thyroid when testing shows normal, is the case for many. It can take further investigation of the thyroid to find the cause. Did you know there are at least 6 other blood markets that can be tested for revealing vital information about your thyroid? Knowing these can help identify why you may be experiencing

underactive thyroid symptoms, and why the imbalance may have occurred. The thyroid is part of the glandular system which produces, stores and secretes hormones into your blood which have a direct effect on your body’s cells. The thyroid produces two hormones that have a regulating effect on your metabolism, heart and nervous system, body temperature, muscle strength, skin dryness, menstrual cycle, weight and cholesterol levels. An underactive thyroid can be linked with other conditions such as menopause, adrenal fatigue, high insulin levels, infertility, nutritional deficiencies, environmental toxicity and food allergies. Once you understand where the imbalance has come from, it’s easy to bring that spring back in your step, where you wake feeling refreshed, vital, have glowing skin, can think clearly and are ready to enjoy life again. Call for your free half hour consultation at Coolum Naturopathic to discuss your health concerns further.

Feeling the vibe in Eumundi

The Long Johns are playing at CoVibes 2

F

ollowing the success of CoVibes 1, the team at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi is hosting CoVibes 2 on Saturday, September 12 with The Long Johns and The Steele Syndicate to take to the stage. The Imperial Hotel’s Alice Jones says it is great to see the community supporting live music events. “Music lovers have shown they are super keen for live gigs and to support musicians who have been hit hard by restrictions,” Ms Jones says.

A four-piece posse, The Long Johns come together to play spooky country with that old-timey swing to deliver songs of hope, loss and hauntings. Brisbane-based octet The Steele Syndicate is raucous, punchy and fun, with a genre-bending sound that re-imagines elements of old-school funk, reggae, ska and indie rock. Ms Jones says to adhere to a COVIDsafe plan, tickets to the 18-plus event are limited. For tickets visit oztix.com.au.

Council buys more land for Blue Heart Sunshine Coast Council has bought an additional 16-hectare property to maintain the Maroochy River floodplain. The River Road property is adjacent to existing public land, which will consolidate the conservation and recreation network in Blue Heart Sunshine Coast. It also complements Unitywater’s 1.7-kilometre Yandina Creek Wetlands trail walk, which opened in late August. In time, this latest acquisition will provide opportunities to restore estuarine wetland habitat and recreation opportunities, such as a district park with Maroochy River frontage. Division nine and Environment and Liveability portfolio councillor Maria Suarez says this purchase will allow the region to continue protecting natural assets, respond to climatic changes and provide further green spaces. “I’m really pleased to see council secure another parcel within the Blue Heart and I look forward to this project providing benefits for the division nine community and the broader Sunshine Coast population,” Cr Suarez says. “It’s projects like these that provide

environmental, social and economic co-benefits, that will help us build our community’s resilience to change and ultimately become Australia’s most sustainable region.” Mayor Mark Jamieson says this brings the conservation estate to more than 7000 hectares of council-managed land. “With approximately 300 metres of Maroochy River frontage, a future district recreation park will help to meet the needs of our growing population and provide a diverse range of recreational experiences for residents and visitors in our local government area,” he says. “This area also has a deep cultural connection with the Kabi Kabi First Nation peoples and council places great importance on future planning for the Blue Heart alongside the Traditional custodians.”

Students get a lesson in rubbish collection

Ben McMaster, Joseph Kline and Sandy Johnston

Y

ear 10 and 11 geography students from Chancellor State College put theory into practise recently, collecting data for their ‘plastics in the ocean’ assignment. As part of a coastal education morning hosted by Sunshine Coast Council, they

saw the impact of marine debris on local beaches, from full dog poo bags and used Band-Aids, to discarded school bags. Division eight councillor Jason O’Pray joined the students at Mudjimba Beach. “The students were challenged to come up with ideas to reduce rubbish at the

source so it doesn’t end up at the beach and in our oceans in the first place,” Cr O’Pray says. “If all we ever do is clean up, that’s all we’ll ever do – we need to think about actions we can take to stop this marine debris at the source. “The rubbish collected on their beach clean-up was weighed and sorted and will be entered into the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI).” Groups around the nation add to the AMDI database, recording the location, quantities and types of marine rubbish collected, to give an overview of the impact on beaches across the country. Cr O’Pray says the students also planted 200 native trees as part of the council’s BushCare Mates program. “BushCare Mates is a school conservation program that uses BushCare and tree planting to educate and inspire students to connect with their local environment while fostering a sense of community. “The trees planted at Marcoola will take five to 10 years to grow, providing long-term protection for our dunes from erosion and food and habitat for birds and wildlife.” Does your school have news?

with MWP’s man in the water

Well, the lack of surf recently inspired a long-time big wave rider/mad foil rider, to think outside the box. Being towed into the wake of a cargo ship on a foil delivered him a three-and-a-half-minute leg burner of a ride. Talk about going to the extreme of riding. Ten out 10 for thinking outside the box. Years ago, we both were flying my cat on one hull near the shipping channel and racing high-powered boats back to Mooloolaba until we buried the nose and did what felt like a tomahawk at slow speed. Funny memories. A few waves with SE winds this weekend so get what you can. Laters.
