ON THE COVER Layne Beachley comes to Venue 114 for International Women’s Day.

From the editor While there have always been exceptions, after lifetimes of female exclusion, you only have to check out our sports pages to know that it is has now become the norm for many mainstream male-dominated sports to be inclusive of women and not just one female, but enough females to make up strong, winning teams. It’s a different world to the one our cover personality, Layne Beachley, grew up in. Back then, similar to other sports, it wasn’t common to see a woman surfing, let alone joining the competition circuit, becoming a world champion and gaining a reputation as a courageous surfer. Ms Beachley broke new frontiers for women, and these days as a motivational speaker she is sharing her story to support others to find and grow their own potential. With all this in mind, there’s no doubt her

engagement as Venue 114’s speaker on International Women’s Day will provide an outstanding combination of entertainment and information. In other women’s sport, we feature a story and picture featuring the Sunshine Coast Lightning team and their 2021 line-up. In our sport pages we also hear from women cyclists. Last week, I sought to gauge your interest in finding a Sunshine Coast floral emblem. We have published some responses in this edition, and we have more to share with you in the next edition. So, keep the ideas flowing and let’s see if together we can have a floral emblem officially named for this area. As always, we are packed with news, views and local people. Enjoy the read.

World virus vaccinations could take years Global vaccinations are years away and the origin of COVID-19 is still unknown, say infectious disease experts. WORDS: Rebecca Gredley, AAP.


t could take years for the world to be vaccinated against COVID-19, so jabs must be shared with developing countries to ensure “more sinister” strains don’t emerge, an infectious disease expert says. An expert trio has addressed the National Press Club last week to provide a specialist view on the coronavirus crisis. Infectious diseases physician Sanjaya Senanayake said about 70 countries had begun vaccination programs. “At the current rate of vaccination it is estimated we won’t reach global coverage of 75 per cent with vaccines for about six years,” Dr Senanayake said. “If we continue this global vaccine rollout while in other parts of the world infection continues unchecked, then we will see more sinister strains emerge which might have further impacts on vaccine efficacy.” Dr Senanayake, who is also an associate professor at the Australian National University’s medical school, said people might end up receiving an annual

coronavirus vaccine. COVID-19 could become a “persistent presence” like the four other coronaviruses that have been around for decades and cause the common cold. “Leading to intermittent incursions causing some hospitalisations and deaths every year, but largely leaving untouched our vaccinated population,” he said. But he warned the Press Club that the world’s rising population and increasing encroachment on natural habitats means the next pandemic is not 100 years away. “It is just around the corner.” South Africa suspended its rollout of the AstraZeneca vaccine after some data showed it gave minimal protection against mild to moderate illness caused by the country’s new strain of the virus. Infectious diseases paediatrician Robert Booy said the South African study was based on 2000 people and was, in effect, irrelevant for Australia. “We need better studies in larger numbers over longer periods of time,” he said. “Then

we’ll have a better understanding whether this vaccine is a problem for the South African variant or not.” Epidemiologist professor Mary-Louise McLaws has urged all Australians to get vaccinated. A World Health Organisation-led team that spent almost a month in Wuhan has been unable to find how the virus was transmitted to humans. The team includes Australian infectious disease expert Dominic Dwyer, who has said it would probably take years to fully understand the origins of COVID-19. The WHO team dismissed suggestions the pandemic was sparked by a lab leak in Wuhan. It determined the virus was most likely to have been transmitted through an animal, but they found no clear link to bats, pangolins or any other wild animals. The delegation also found the virus may have been spread through frozen food, and could have been active in other regions or countries before the first cases emerged in Wuhan.

Whether it’s kimchi, beets or broccoli, the pandemic has had a strange impact on food cravings that goes beyond the joy of comfort eating. Nearly a year into isolation, many people are embracing foods long forgotten or rejected for taste, texture or smell. Some have forced themselves to re-evaluate health-focused foods to help boost their immune systems. And with home cooking at a high, there’s a new adventurousness in the kitchen. For Maeri Ferguson, 31, in Brooklyn, it’s all about pears. After recovering from COVID-19, she spent months without normal taste and smell. So many foods she loved just didn’t satisfy. Now, Ms Ferguson can again sense sweetness, saltiness and spiciness, but most foods lack nuance in flavour. Not pears. During the pandemic, a friend gave her a handy slicer as a gift and she pushed herself to figure out how to spot a good pear. It was one of the first foods she could truly taste. While Ms Ferguson may not have pear sales soaring, a big pandemic winner is fermented foods. Anastasia Sharova, a chef in Stuttgart, Germany, developed an interest in making kimchi, miso and sauerkraut. Kombucha was already a trend and helped popularise home fermenting. Others are reconnecting with their childhood favourites, whipping up grilled cheese sandwiches to eat with tinned tomato soup. Harry Overly, the “chief imagination wrangler”, president and CEO for SunMaid, says the raisin company had a 1.4 per cent increase in the last year in the number of US households that started eating raisins. “We absolutely see, especially in the past year, how consumers lean into nostalgia and reconnect with brands they remember from their childhood,” he says. – AAP

World wonders.

Did you know?

Do you remember?

The oldest surviving love poem is written in a clay tablet from the times of the Sumerians, inventors of writing around 3500 BC, and was called by archaeologists the very un-romantic name ‘Istanbul #2461’. The words are believed to have been recited by a bride of Sumerian King Shu-Sin, who ruled between 2037 and 2029 BC.

Quote of the week.

9.65 cm “Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.” – Albert Einstein

The smallest dog living, in terms of height, is a female chihuahua called Milly, who measured 9.65 centimetres tall on February 21, 2013 and is owned by Vanesa Semler of Dorado, Puerto Rico.

The tallest dog ever was Zeus, a Great Dane measuring 1.118 metres tall on October 4, 2011 and owned by Denise Doorlag and her family from Michigan in the US. Zeus weighed 70.30 kilos and ate approximately 13.6 kilos of food every two weeks. Sadly, Zeus passed away in September 2014 at the age of five.

The Beehive styles of the early 1960s sometimes overlapped with bouffant styles, which also employed teasing to create hair volume; but generally speaking, the beehive effect was a rounded cone piled upwards from the top of the head, while the simple bouffant was a wider, puffier shape covering the ears at the sides.

Today in history – February 18 1943 – The Gestapo arrests German resistance fighter Sophie Scholl and other White Rose activists – 21-year-old student Scholl and her fellow campaigners were executed for having distributed flyers criticising the Nazi regime. 1954 – The first Church of Scientology is established. Despite many controversies, Scientology has gained thousands of members. 1977 – The Space Shuttle takes off on its maiden flight. The Enterprise was mounted on a Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. 1978 – Hawaii hosts the first Ironman triathlon. Contestants have to swim 3.86 kilometres, bike 180.25 kilometres and complete a marathon run measuring 42.2 kilometres.

Into the deep Layne Beachley is a winner, but she had to fight her way to the top. Next month she’s sharing the lessons she has learned and the wisdom she has gained with Sunshine Coast audiences. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


he ocean has been like a mother to Layne Beachley. As the most successful female surfer in history, she has turned to it for solace, comfort, strength and nurturance. Like a matriarch, the ocean has been a powerful force of nature to Ms Beachley, who believes it should be respected rather than feared. Born in 1972 to a young, unmarried mother, she was adopted by Neil and Valerie Beachley, who not only lived in the Sydney beachside suburb of Manly, but who also bestowed a surname on her entirely befitting of a future surfing superstar. Sadly, Valerie died when Layne was only six, leaving Neil to raise her and her brother. Ms Beachley was drawn to the ocean from a young age and has spent her life in its embrace. “I see the ocean as female – that’s why she’s called Mother Ocean,” she tells My Weekly Preview. “For me, going into the ocean is like immersing myself back into the womb. It’s very nurturing and connected. I feel free when I’m in the ocean. You’ve got to have the confidence to surrender to a force that’s way more

powerful than you. That is what the ocean demands.” While she announced her retirement from competitive surfing in 2008, Ms Beachley still surfs every day. “I just came in from a surf,” she says. “It reaffirmed the importance of having the energy to match the energy of the ocean. On smaller days, you can be a little more relaxed and it’s okay if you’re fatigued, but on the bigger days, you have to be energised and focused and you have to have the intent to match the energy you’re surfing in. Surfing teaches me to surrender. Today I had to surrender due to lack of energy. “Every wave is a canvas. It’s up to the surfer to be the artist and leave a mark on the canvas. Surfing enhances every aspect of your life. It challenges me, it engages both the left- and right-hand side of the brain, it fuels creative productivity, motivation, happiness, a sense of connection. Surfing brings an enormous amount of value to my life.” Residing in Manly with her husband, Kirk Pengilly of INXS, she still surfs at her local beach and is often recognised. Reactions by fellow surfers – especially

the guys – to sharing waves with a surfing icon varies. But she’s used to that – she’s been competing and winning against men from the age of 15. “I get a variety of responses,” she says. “I get a lot of encouragement. One of the nicest things someone said to me when I paddled out recently was ‘morning legend’. I get people who are

“Women tend to have a lot more fun in the water. We don’t take ourselves quite as seriously as the men” very surprised to see me and say, ‘wow, that’s Layne Beachley’. Then there’s guys who just want to prove themselves to me and give me a hard time and drop in on me. I say to myself, two can play that game. Sometimes I take them on and sometimes I don’t.

“Women tend to have a lot more fun in the water. We don’t take ourselves quite as seriously as the men. We can often demonstrate the element of surprise through our confidence and ability as a surfer. When women paddle out, there’s almost like a layer of oestrogen that settles in the environment. When I’m sitting in amongst a bunch of guys, it’s all very serious, quite assertive, everyone is always jostling and often giving each other a hard time. But when the women are out there, there’s a lot of laughter, a lot of giggling, a lot of storytelling and also a lot of support for each other. We’re very encouraging.” Ms Beachley comes across as confident and comfortable with who she is and where she’s at in life, but it wasn’t always the case. She grew up with low selfesteem and has spoken publicly about having been conceived during a date rape and put up for adoption. It was due to her low self-worth that she pushed so hard to prove herself as a surfer, while today she doesn’t have to prove herself to anyone. Currently struggling with low hormone levels which are resulting in fatigue, she’s being gentle on herself. “I was absolutely hard on myself when myweeklypreview.com.au

15/02/2021 4:07:09 PM


I was younger,” she says. “If I was enduring this kind of setback in my early twenties, I would persevere and push through. I never gave myself a break – physically, mentally and emotionally I was unnecessarily hard on myself. I can honestly say now I am wholly confident in my ability to succeed in struggle and in fun. It comes down to what you trust in. The majority of us trust in fear, struggle, pain and suffering. “If I feel any guilt for going easy on myself, I’m now aware that’s fed by my scarcity mentality. I manage it more proactively as opposed to reacting at every opportunity. “It’s about scheduling time out for me, honouring my body, planning ahead. I feel no guilt for honouring my body and giving myself a break.” Now a keynote speaker who presents around the world on the subjects of success, overcoming challenges and maintaining a winning mindset, Ms Beachley will share her strategies for dealing with overwhelm, stress and detaching from fear when she visits the Sunshine Coast for an International Women’s Day talk at Venue 114 on March 5.

Having faced her demons and reached a place of contentment in life, she’s now compelled to help others. To that end, she founded Awake Academy, an online course to help people design a life they love. “I have distilled 40 years of life experience into the course,” she says. “I want to help people empower themselves. The first course is called Own Your Truth and is a self-paced, seven-round course to unlock your internal GPS. The premise of the course is to wake up, own your sh** and trust in love. It’s not a goal-setting course, it’s more a self-empowerment course to help people become aware of their feelings, stories, judgements, become aware of the people they have around them. “People can learn to align themselves with their dream team, learn how to establish boundaries around energy and time, awaken their spirit to be more playful and fun. It’s a really engaging, safe, inclusive environment for people to come and do some work on themselves.” Ms Beachley is looking forward to visiting the Sunshine Coast and says she enjoys its relaxed feel. She even has good things to say about our waves. “Your waves are a lot better than what I surf on the northern beaches of Sydney,” she says. “The perfect right-hand points are an absolute treat. It can be quite fickle because of the positioning of the points up there and it does require the perfect storm to get the waves pumping. But when it’s on, it’s world-class. That’s why you see surfers running to the beach like their lives depend on it. They want to get out there as fast as possible.” Venue 114 will kick off the In Conversation series for 2021 in conjunction with celebrating International Women’s Day and highlighting the importance of #Spirit Of Women on Friday, March 5. Local author Nikki Fogden-Moore will emcee the event, with musician Lucy Gallant performing live. For more information and tickets, visit venue114.com.au.

Aim for the stars


The Layne Beachley Foundation’s ‘Aim for the Stars’ was founded by Ms Beachley to prevent girls and women alike from enduring the same amount of adversity and financial hardship she encountered to becoming a world champion surfer. Rated number two on the world tour, Ms Beachley had to work four jobs, up to 60 hours a week while training, surfing and aspiring to become the best in the world. Ms Beachley’s desire is to encourage, enable and empower girls and women to believe in themselves,

invest in their future and fulfill their potential. Encompassing academic, science, business, sport and community pursuits, Aim for the Stars offers ambitious and dedicated females an opportunity to receive financial and moral support to help them achieve their goals. Ms Beachley’s support will give them the opportunity to maintain a determined focus on their goal, to achieve their dreams earlier in life and allow them to further their ambitions and aim for the stars.

Chairperson Carol Raye says in the two years since operating, the cottage has cared for more than 130 guests and their families at no cost. “This, our very first, car lottery will raise much-needed funds for our hospice following fundraising losses last year due to COVID-19 and will also help raise awareness of the invaluable service.” Cricks Volkswagen Maroochydore is generously donating a Volkswagen Polo for first prize. The runner-up and third-place winner will receive $3000 and $1000 cash respectively. Tickets are available at Katie Rose Cottage op shop, 54-56 Aerodrome Road, Maroochydore. Only 3500 tickets are up for grabs, at $20 each. Winners will be drawn on April 30.


$250,000 A new bottling plant in the Sunshine Coast hinterland is creating more than 24 direct and indirect jobs thanks to grant funding from the state government. Kenilworth Dairies is one of 43 businesses in Queensland to receive a Rural Economic Development (RED) Grant to help fund the expansion of its business. A $250,000 co-contribution helped buy equipment to pasteurise milk and set up a laboratory to monitor products for quality and safety purposes. Owner John Cochrane says the new bottling plant is helping make Kenilworth Dairies a completely independent local dairy provider, able to process 12,000 litres of milk daily.

ENTER FOR FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP Applications are currently open for Matthew Flinders Anglican College’s senior scholarship. The Flinders Foundation Scholarship is open to any student commencing Year 10 or Year 11 in 2022. The scholarship will recognise a student who is an outstanding all-round contributor and will positively enhance the school community, and cover 50 per cent of the recipient’s senior school tuition fees. Scholarships are also open for music, academics, general excellence and the principal’s scholarship. Applications close on February 26. Visit the scholarships page under the ‘enrolments’ tab at mfac.edu.au.


RECOGNITION FOR ROBERT IRWIN’S PHOTO The Sunshine Coast’s own Robert Irwin is the winner of the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020 People’s Choice Award. There were more than 50,000 entries from around the world for the competition, with Robert’s image, Bushfire, the winner of 25 shortlisted photos. His drone image was captured near the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve in Cape York, portraying the biodiversity loss from last year’s bushfires. “I feel truly humbled to receive this immense honour, and I hope the image shines a light on the effect that climate change has on our environment,” he says. Robert’s photo will be displayed at London’s Natural History Museum until August 2021.


It appears the Sunshine Coast has a love affair with local libraries, with some impressive numbers recorded in 2020. Councillor David Law says there are more than 110,000 library members across the region. “In 2020 more than 1.8 million items were borrowed from Sunshine Coast Libraries with 5.8 million hits on our online catalogue and 2.6 million visits to the website,” he says. “There were 1.4 million visitors through the library doors and 86,900 computer bookings. In addition to this, the library team created 1930 programs that were attended by 85,500 people online and 42,700 at live events, prior to COVID-19.”

NEW LIFEFLIGHT ARRIVALS READY TO SERVE Four new RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care doctors are swapping the hospital for a helicopter to bring advanced care to Sunshine Coast locals in need. One of the new recruits, Dr Faraaz de Belder (pictured), has a wealth of experience helping people at emergency scenes in the UK, previously working as an ambulance critical care doctor, volunteering with the police force, and serving in the Army Reserves. “I think it’s going to be a completely different working environment. Obviously there’s much closer confines in terms of your environment, you’ve got to take into account travelling distances, weather, as well as some of the more unique experiences that are available, like winching from an aircraft,” he says. “I’m looking forward to helping out Queenslanders and taking care of the most critically unwell patients out there, I think it’s a really rewarding job.”

FRESH FACES JOIN LIGHTNING A boost of new energy has been injected into the Sunshine Coast Lightning for 2021. WORDS: Ash McInstosh.



host of new faces has reinvigorated Sunshine Coast Lightning on and off court ahead of season 2021. New additions Mahalia Cassidy (Queensland Firebirds) and Kate Shimmin (Adelaide Thunderbirds) have already made a considerable impact during pre-season, earning praise from Coach Kylee Byrne. “They have already exceeded my expectation and that is purely from the work they have put in already in pre-season and how they’ve fit in with the group,” Ms Byrne says. “That cultural fit, the ability to gel with other players has just gone to another level. “A few players are saying it’s a little bit like year one – that little bit of excitement and difference that two players can bring.” The club has also welcomed esteemed netballer and coach Vicki Wilson to the fold to bolster Lightning’s coaching team, having already established a strong rapport with Ms Byrne over the past two decades. “Years ago Vicki was the one coach that I always thought was ahead of her time and I’m starting to see that all play out now,” Ms Byrne says.

Laura Scherian, Maddy McAuliffe, Peace Proscovia “Vicki’s coaching mind is something I’ve only seen in two or three other people in our sport. “I think this is the start of something for the club that will give us another point of difference and take us towards the future.” Lightning also continues to perform off court, this week announcing Protector Aluminium as a Premium Partner in what is

a boost to the club’s corporate backing. “Despite the current challenging landscape, Lightning has continued to attract global partners, demonstrating the unique value proposition that we provide and the demand for a genuine alignment of values,” club CEO Danielle Smith says. The Suncorp Super Netball season will begin on May 1.

After a successful 2019, the Sunshine Coast Jazz Club-sponsored inaugural Youth N Jazz Bursary has been relaunched for 2021. The SCJC philosophy ‘Youth are our Future’, combined with the arts and fine jazz music, is a genuine approach by the club to support talented young artists and their schools located within the Sunshine Coast and Noosa Council boundaries. A total of $3000 will be shared between the two section winners and four runnersup, and there will be a further two, five hundred dollars prizes awarded to each section winner’s school music departments. The bursary offers two sections, Section A is open to jazz/swing vocalist and Section B is open to jazz/swing cover instrumentalist. Applicants are welcome to apply for both. Applications to be submitted and approved by a parent or guardian with a digital recording before June 30, 2021. The finalist will be advised by a SCJC committee member before July 31.

A NEW START The floral emblem of the Maroochy Shire before amalgamation in 2008, was the Black Bean. The Landsborough Shire had the King Orchid. The Noosa Shire had the Boronia Keyseii. It would be lovely to start afresh with a floral emblem for the Sunshine Coast Regional Council.

LIFE OR DEATH If you are old, sickly, or immune deficient due to poor genetics or from cancer or other disease treatments but are still against getting vaccinated for COVID-19, then, by default, you would be personally in favour of voluntary assisted dying; because if you then catch COVID, you will have chosen to voluntarily assist in your own death. And for those who say the vaccines are not safe, note that contrary to social media fake news, there is no mercury in either of the vaccines to be used in Australia.

The planet-saving potential hidden in our rubbish Buried deep in our household rubbish bin lies an opportunity that could see the Sunshine Coast divert more than half of our household bin waste from landfill, and instead turn it into a valuable resource.


ouncil is seeking community feedback on a proposal to introduce an opt-out third bin for garden waste that could transition to a food organics and garden organics bin service, also known as a FOGO bin. Residents are invited to complete a short online survey and have a say on the future of waste. Service Delivery Portfolio Councillor Christian Dickson said this was another project that had the potential to put the region on a path to achieving international, national and state greenhouse gas reduction targets. And another step towards becoming Australia’s most sustainable, healthy, smart and creative region. Council’s waste strategy sets the target to divert 55 per cent of household waste from landfill by 2025 – at the moment it sits at

20 My Weekly Preview | February 18, 2021

34 per cent. Forty-three councils in New South Wales have a FOGO service, and it makes sense because it means less waste is sent to landfill – potentially extending the life of the existing facilities by many years. Cr Dickson said the introduction of a compulsory garden waste and FOGO bin would be another step towards Council’s goal to deliver a circular economy for waste and towards becoming Australia’s most sustainable, healthy, smart and creative region. Bones, lemon peels, out-of-date dairy products, lawn clippings and meat might seem like rubbish, but they could be converted into a valuable resource, like energy or compost, if recycled correctly. Council is undertaking a community survey to explore the possibility of introducing a third bin for lawn clippings and

garden waste for every household as an option to improve waste management. At the moment, more than 35,000 households have a garden waste bin. If all households used a garden waste bin, this could increase the total amount of material recycled by households to over 40 per cent, reducing the amount of organic waste in landfill and allow it to be recycled into mulch. Cr Dickson added our region’s organic waste could be turned into high-quality compost which could be put to good use in parks, gardens and farms, instead of rotting in a landfill and producing methane. Or it could be converted into a fuel to make electricity. Council wants hear the community’s feedback before any decision is made. Visit Council’s website to complete the online survey before 5pm on 2 March.

NEW PLANNING SCHEME IN MOTION In partnership with our community, Council will spend the next few years developing a new planning scheme, which will shape land use and development across our region.

FROM THE MAYOR The future liveability of our region relies on being able to move people between where they work, live and recreate as efficiently as possible as the region continues to grow. That’s why Council is progressing the important planning work for a better public transport system and we continue to work closely with the State Government. Just as we need a rail connection from Maroochydore to the North Coast Rail Line (along the long designated CAMCOS corridor), we also need a suburban public transport system connected to the rail. With this in mind, I was delighted to hear recently that the Federal Member for Fisher, Andrew Wallace, is committing to secure funding from the Federal Government to establish heavy rail along the CAMCOS corridor. However, the rail connection on its own won’t reduce congestion on local roads. We also need an effective public transport system to move people from suburb to suburb and connect them to the heavy rail that Mr Wallace is seeking to secure. Otherwise, we will see more cars trying to reach a few heavy rail stations, which will add to congestion and ultimately, sell our community short. Mark Jamieson Mayor Sunshine Coast Council

Wine of the times Champion Sunshine Coast sommelier Peter Marchant says we all need to chill when it comes to selecting a good wine. Words: Leigh Robshaw.


enowned Sunshine Coast sommelier Peter Marchant says a white wine you can pick up from any bottle-o for less than 10 bucks is one of the best-value wines on the market. He may have travelled the world judging fine wines and made a living sharing his expertise in many a fine restaurant, but Mr Marchant is as down-toearth as the ground from which a grape vine grows. “Jacob’s Creek riesling is one of the best technically made wines,” Mr Marchant says. “But I get the p**s taken out of me for recommending it.” As the sommelier at new Maroochydore CBD restaurant Market Bistro, owned by restaurant mavericks Tony Kelly and Luke Stringer, Mr Marchant curates a collection of more than 1000 wines.

Certified by Australia’s Court of Master Sommeliers in 2007, he has judged many wine shows and in 2014, was selected as a scholar for the Len Evans Tutorial, the world’s most exclusive wine school. He has consulted with top restaurants, bars and hotels both in wine and hospitality management and was state chairman and a member of the national executive of Sommeliers Australia for five years. Before joining Market Bistro, he worked for Spicers Retreats for six years. With his impressive career pedigree, he’s been dubbed ‘Queensland’s favourite sommelier’, a title he brushes off. “I don’t even know who came up with that,” he says. “The element of wine getting really wanky doesn’t interest me at all. All I do is open some booze. We’re not curing cancer here. People love me on Saturday

night and hate me on Sunday morning.” From humble beginnings helping his mother in her Brisbane catering business at age nine, to his first job at the local fish and chip shop at 12, he always knew he wanted to work in hospitality. His first waiting job was at 17 at Avanti in Bardon and he travelled Europe as food and beverage manager for Splash Leisure’s five venues. He also managed and owned a number of Brisbane cafes and restaurants and won state and national awards. All roads have led Mr Marchant to where he finds himself today, at one of the Coast’s coolest new restaurants. Having lived in Maleny while working for Spicers, he’s now based at Peregian and says work has been “crazy” since Market Bistro opened its doors on December 3. He’s taking care of the extensive wine list, 200 spirits plus beers and pre-mixed drinks in the bistro’s accompanying wine store. He loves the fact that it’s a classy yet casual restaurant that serves great food and wine without the side order of pretension. “One of my big philosophies when people ask ‘what do you recommend’ is to ask, ‘what do you normally drink?’ There’s no point in me recommending chardonnay if you hate chardonnay. It’s not about me. Unfortunately, a lot of sommeliers want to make it about them. That’s not how it works. People say sauvignon blanc has ruined the world because it’s easy to make and it’s a mass-market product, but it has paid our wages for the past 10 to 15 years. “I say drink whatever you want. The old adage that you must drink red with this or white with that… why would you do that? It doesn’t make any sense to me. It’s about happiness and joy, first and foremost. It shouldn’t be about following rules. “Wine is not about the wine – it’s experiential. It’s about the people, the place and how you’re enjoying it. It’s not about assessing it and saying it’s got great legs.

Wine should be fun first and fact second.” Mr Marchant routinely tasted 150 wines a day as a judge in wine shows and after years at the top of his game, says he still doesn’t know much about wine. “The thing with wine is the more you know, the more you realise you don’t know. That’s always a challenge. People think they know a lot. I do this professionally and I hardly know anything. The thing with wine is there’s two seasons every year in the northern and southern hemispheres. It’s continually evolving and that’s what makes it interesting for me.” In terms of wine trends, Mr Marchant predicts sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, pinot grigio and chardonnay will remain the most popular whites for the foreseeable future. In terms of reds, its pinot noir and shiraz all the way. And his favourite drop? “I don’t have a favourite. It’s like asking who your favourite child is. I love great wine and it doesn’t have to be expensive. But like most sommeliers, what I want to drink is cold beer. Wine is work.” He’s not complaining though – there are worse jobs than tasting wine for a living. “I’m certainly very fortunate,” he says. “The ability for me to help people enjoy their moments with friends and family, just seeing that lightbulb moment when it takes them back somewhere or reminds them of something or someone, that’s the service side of why I like looking after people. If you don’t like looking after people, you shouldn’t be in this industry. I have some amazing relationships with people who make wine all over the planet and it’s one of the best things in the world.”

Peter Marchant will conduct a riesling masterclass at the Sunshine Coast Asian Food Festival at Spicers Tamarind Maleny on February 28, from 1pm to 6pm.

LEARN ABOUT THE AMAZING WORLD OF FUNGI Fungi are not a plant and are in fact more closely related to animals. Fungi are crucial to the healthy functioning of the rainforest ecosystem, decomposing forest material and returning nutrients to the soil. Join fungi guru Fran Guard (pictured) for a walk through Mary Cairncross Reserve. Ms Guard has been interested in fungi for more than 15 years and loves them all, but especially the tiny ones called Marasmius that decompose leaf litter. Ms Guard’s walk will focus on the role of fungi in the rainforest and how they interact with everything else. When: Saturday March 6, 8.30am-10am. Where: Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, 148 Mountain View Road, Maleny. Tickets: $16.91 at sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/ Experience-Sunshine-Coast/Events/Whats-On.

SEE GEORGE BERNARD SHAW CLASSIC The Lind presents the rarely produced sparkling comedy Arms and the Man by George Bernard Shaw (author of Pygmalion). The cast is a talented mix of Lind regulars and newcomers, directed by Joy Hinckley, who will bring this clever anti-romcom alive. Set and costume design by Anne Grant will make the production a visual treat. Dreamy heroine Raina is searching for a pure and romantic higher love, and has found it in her fiancé, the noble and dashing war hero Sergius. So, when Bluntschli, a tattered and not very dashing at all enemy soldier takes refuge in her bedroom after fleeing a battle, there’s no way he could ever compete for her affections – or could he? Throw in some aspirational parents, and a pair of servants with their own agendas, and the stage is set for fun. Of course, it wouldn’t be Shaw without some sharp satire and social commentary thrown into the mix. Where: Lind Lane Theatre, 16 Mitchell Street, Nambour. When: Friday, February 26, 7.30pm–9.30pm – for other dates check website. Tickets: Adults: $25. For tickets call 1300 732 764 or visit lindlane.com.au.

am a later-in-life swearer. In my childhood home, even ‘bum’ was considered offensive and swear words were for the rough and ill-educated. We just didn’t do it – or never around grownups anyway. I raised my own kids the same way, although their teen years were peppered with language so salty it would make a sailor blush. I was never so brave. But I have come to savour the feel of an expletive as it slides out. It exits with a tickly zing, pleasing the slightly naughty child still in me.

And while I have tempered the goody two-shoes inside (I used to say ‘holy heck’ a lot and still may say ‘good gracious’ as a go-to), I still reckon where swearing is concerned, it is all about time, place and saving it up for maximum impact. The power of swearing comes from it breaking social norms. To indulge is edgy, naughty: think about why children are delighted with themselves when they swear. If you swear all the time, the thrill goes. In the book Swearing is Good for You: The Amazing Science of Bad Language, swearing scientist Emma Byrne canvassed 200 years of research on the brain and profanity in sundry languages. She found that although cultures don’t all share the same taboos or find the same ideas offensive, all languages do have curse words that create a similar effect on others who are steeped in a culture’s values and language. Swearing is the litmus test, the foul-mouthed canary in the coal mine,

that indicates what that society’s sensitive points are. She found no matter the culture, the four taboo categories are religious, copulatory, excretory and derogatory. There are many ways we try to prevent, censor or punish swearing. It can be informally policed, like when your brother cops a cake of soap in the gob for letting the S-word fly in mum’s earshot or someone gets a detention for accidentally letting an expletive loose during dodge ball in Year 8 PE. Cricket captain Tim Paine had to hold a media conference to apologise for his potty mouth on field recently, and firebrand tennis player Nick Kyrgios was issued a language warning (again) in the recent Murray River Open. But swearing is controlled formally, too: it can get you fired from your job and you can be fined, censored and even arrested. A British woman is currently facing jail in Dubai for swearing at her flatmate in a WhatsApp message. Scientists say uttering curse words can help us manage pain better, feel a release at times of great stress and help us endure greater physical challenges. But the positive impact on the brain is reduced when used too often. So the trick with swearing is to save it for when you really need it. It is a matter of keeping your powder dry and then dropping F- and S-bombs like firecrackers in the night sky. In the moment of anger, frustration or even joyful cursing, the effect is like a colourful flash. The air is streaked with blue and the release is palpable. Science and lived experience back up its benefits, I swear.

In a move that will give chills to fans of the dystopian movie The Matrix, scientists have developed a wearable device that could use the human body to replace batteries. Tech-lovers could power their own watches or fitness trackers by wearing a stretchy ring or bracelet containing thermoelectric chips that convert heat into electrical energy, according to research published in the journal Science Advances. Jianliang Xiao, the paper’s senior author told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in emailed comments: “(Thermoelectric devices) can provide continuous power to wearable devices and could potentially replace batteries in the future. “We hope this technology could, at least partially, solve the pollution problems of electronic waste,” he says, adding the tool is fully recyclable. The devices generate about one volt of energy per square centimetre of skin covered. While more research is needed to increase the amount of power produced and allow for mass production, the gadgets could be on sale in five to 10 years, Mr Xiao says. “Just don’t tell the robots,” the university said in a statement. “We don’t want them getting any ideas.” – By Umberto Bacchi, AAP

Ashley Robinson’s misadventures continue, this time in the garden as he attempts to find the root of a weed choking his grass.

Sami Muirhead ventures to the cinema to see her childhood sweetheart Indiana Jones crack his whip on the big screen.

have often wondered what the root of all evil is, as I suppose have all of us. Is it sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll or some other influence on our lives depending on our beliefs? Well, I think I have found it. It is right outside my front door every morning and every night it seems I can’t escape it. I love my yard. Well, let me clarify – I love my grass. Not the sort you smoke, but my Sir Walter grass. It has been a beautiful love affair. Particularly after I got my battery mower and mulcher from Sunshine Coast Mowers, I could actually mow every day in summer if I had time and old mate never got me certified. This was all good until I noticed this creeping weed that came from the park out front, which has a broad leaf on it and started popping up everywhere. I sprayed it with a weed and feed concoction that killed everything but the weed (possibly mixed it too strong). So all of sudden my beautiful grass had big dead patches with the only green thing being the weed. It was then that old mate got involved and said she heard a gardening expert on the radio who she pointed out knew a lot

more about this problem than me, that you had to follow the weed until you got to the root. Old mate even did a bit to prove it worked and it did, so I picked last Sunday in 35-degree heat to have a crack at it. In her words, I just had to “follow the creeping vine until you get to the root and pull it out, it’s not rocket science”. What she didn’t explain was the vine is actually strangling the grass, so I ended up pulling out big clumps of grass with it and after about an hour of sweating and swearing, I got a hoe and just dug up everything in a rage. I then filled it in with potting mix, which mixed with sweat and made me look like a Yowie. It was a very emotional time and when I finished I couldn’t lift my arms above my shoulders, which I thought was fatigue but in fact was a green ants nest I unearthed that ended up under my shirt. When I reported in and lifted my shirt I looked like I had been tasered under both arms, much to the delight of old mate, particularly when I told her I felt light-headed? I will let you know If I have managed to exterminate the root of all evil?

ostalgia. It just ain’t what it used to be! I had a huge trip down memory lane this week when I went to the actual movies (remember them?) and watched Indiana Jones in all his glory on the big screen. The whip! The fedora! It’s a super-rugged and sexy combination that makes me shout “Go, team Ford”. My husband thinks I am cheering for his childhood hero Dick Johnson, but really it is all about Harrison, the hot son of a gun. Some things in life just get better with age, like a fine red wine. It is 30 years since the release of the iconic movie Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Harrison Ford captured the hearts and heads of guys and girls around the world with his cheeky bravado and sexy intellect as a renowned archaeologist. Indy’s first adventure is a rip-roaring masterpiece with treasure, traps and temples. The first 12 minutes of Raiders of the Lost Ark has been called the greatest opening sequence in action film history, catapulting the five-film franchise. Harrison Ford was my first crush. Well, it was actually a tie between him as Han

Solo in Star Wars and John Travolta in Grease. As a child, I remember my grandmother taking me to Brisbane to watch Temple of Doom and being in awe of Harrison Ford. His swagger. His smile. The way he walked. They don’t make ‘em like they used to. I also fell in love with going to the movies. I would sit next to my grandmother who always smelled of the most gorgeous lavender soap and inhale popcorn and lemonade. I thought I was in heaven. For two hours I was transported to another world, when the furthest I had ever travelled was up and down the highway between the Coast and Brisbane. The third instalment of the Indiana Jones movies is screening at Event Cinemas Kawana for one week. It is your parental duty to educate the next generation about what a true hero is and how a great adventure movie can lift the soul. And when you think nothing could make all of this better, I am going to remind you of the fact Sean Connery plays Indy’s dad. Sean and Harrison together. The whip and the Scottish accent. Now that is winning the lotto, people.

Eudlo’s Rosebud & Finch continues to grow in unexpected but delightful ways. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.



Rhys Williams and Cheryse Healy of Rosebed & Finch with sons Franklin, six, and Alfie, three


t started off as a way to subsidise her maternity leave, and now a Sunshine Coast mother-of-two with a passion for experimenting in the kitchen is expanding her sweet business. Rosebed & Finch in Eudlo is a place

for Cheryse Healy to share vegan, gluten- and refined sugar-free delicacies with the public from her cottage kitchen. “We have a beautiful garden setting and servery window to do coffees, grab-and-go desserts and a small

savoury range as well,” Ms Healy says. “We are not a traditional cafe; it’s a relaxed garden studio to try yourself some edible art, attend one of our workshops or grab that caffeine fix or last-minute birthday cake on the way through our beautiful town.” The business began in 2016 when Ms Healy rented commercial kitchen spaces after business hours, experimenting with recipes and selling a few boxes of treats each week to help earn some money while pregnant with her second son Alfie. Eventually she launched the business online for wholesale orders, home deliveries and catering, with plans to establish a permanent set-up. “We found out where we lived in Eudlo is commercially zoned, so we built a space out the front,” Ms Healy says. “It was probably more of a project than we set out to do but it was good because it took so long and the business was able to organically grow online. “Going through COVID we were able to manoeuvre the business model into what we wanted it to be. “It was a blessing in disguise. I probably wouldn’t have said that two years ago, but it is now.” The name itself comes from the street they live on, Rosebed Street, and Finch is the maiden name of Ms Healy’s greatgrandmother. Busy juggling her two sons, Franklin, six, and Alfie, three, Ms Healy says the

business is a real family venture with her husband, Rhys Williams, often helping on the Friday morning home delivery run. The business will continue its model of wholesale orders, home deliveries and workshops and eventually Ms Healy plans to make the new space available to hire out for baby showers or private bookings on the weekend. The cottage kitchen will officially open in March with a date to be announced on social media in the coming weeks. Rosebed & Finch is located at 15 Rosebed Street, Euldo, will be open from 9am to 4pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and is pet friendly. Visit rosebedandfinch.com.au

A local man is finally a published author with not one but two books now for sale. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.


riting has been a passion of Buderim’s Gerard Traub for more than 30 years and he is now celebrating the release of two books inspired by his love for eastern culture and nature. Working in special needs and aged care for the past 35 years, the 58-year-old has continued to explore his creative passion, beginning publishing in early 2020. “I began writing poetry at the age of 20, and have been writing ever since,” he says. “I have explored and enjoyed other creative avenues such as drawing, painting and ceramic sculpture, but writing has always been closest to my heart.” His children’s story Lily the Lotus and poetry book Reflections of Nature were realised just before Christmas, with Lily the Lotus already gaining international attention with an endorsement from the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson. “My children’s story Lily the Lotus came to me one morning back in 2003,” Mr Traub says. “It is a story about young Lily who dreams of a greater world beyond her own, and, from an innocent seed, blossoms into a beautiful lotus flower.”

BUDERIM TRIVIA NIGHT If you are looking to put your trivia knowledge to the test, Buderim Uniting Church is holding a trivia night for teams of up to eight on February 26. Registration is $20 per team with plenty of prizes up for grabs, and refreshments also available. The night will take place from 7pm at Connections on King at Buderim Uniting Church on the corner of King Street and Gloucester Road. Phone Yvonne on 0434 712 801 to book.

LOCAL NEWS Do you have a news tip? Let journalist Caitlin Zerafa know about it! Phone 5444 0152 or email: localnews@myweeklypreview.com.au

The symbolism of the lotus flower comes from Mr Traub’s interest in eastern culture and Lily is the name of his late grandmother. “Since my very early childhood, I have been interested in ancient cultures, and a little later in [life] traditional eastern philosophy and spirituality,” he says. “I actually travelled to China in the early ’90s as a student of Qigong, a traditional practice including exercise and meditation. “There, I saw huge lotus flowers growing in lakes as far as the eye could see.” Mr Traub says his poetry book is more like a collection of brief meditations speaking of his love of nature. “I am hoping that Reflections of Nature will inspire the reader to wander into nature and surrender to its surrounds.” Mr Traub hopes to continue his journey as a published author, exploring poetry, philosophy and possibly another children’s story. “I have many other writings still waiting to see the light of day,” he says. Both books are available at gerardtraub.com, Booktopia and Amazon.

The Nambour theatre is hosting its first production of 2021. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

Taylor Rost and Clem van der Weegen prepare for the Arms and the Man performance


he Lind Theatre in Nambour is gearing up for its first production of the year with Arms and the Man to take to the stage later this month. After dusting off the 2020 cobwebs with guest show Holy Ship in January, Lind Theatre president Glenda Campi hopes locals will flock to see the show, which is set to be bright and fun.

“Sparkling with fun and laughs, Arms and the Man is social criticism wrapped in an entertaining confection as sweet as a chocolate cream. “This energetic and colourful production features well-known Sunny Coast faces and some fresh young talent. “Regulars know that the Lind provides a good social occasion for all too.” Ms Campi says 2020 was very difficult

for live theatre, but it did present the opportunity for a few venue improvements. “We used the time to do some improvements, notably a shiny new all-weather roof for our patio.” Arms and the Man is suitable for all ages and runs from February 26 to March 6. Get tickets via lindlane.com.au or phone 1300 732 764.

Have you ever wondered if a particular road belongs to council or the state government? The Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has a feature on its website, ‘Road Lookup’. Visit qldtraffic.qld. gov.au/lookup.html to try it yourself. Another tip is that TMR generally controls roads that connect towns. The feeder roads are usually council controlled. When a TMR road is also the main street of a town, while the actual road is theirs, the car parks and pathways are usually maintained by council. To report matters regarding council roads, visit sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au where you can lodge an eRequest online or chat using Council’s Live Chat. To report matters regarding state roads, contact TMR on 131 940 or visit tmr.qld.gov.au. Another topic I’d like to bring to your attention is the importance of being a responsible pet owner. Please ensure your pet is well behaved and clean up after it. There is plenty of information available on council’s website to help you responsibly care for your dogs and cats. As a cat owner, you must also ensure your cat doesn’t pose a risk to wildlife. Keep your cat contained and don’t let them roam off your property.

Taught to sew by his mother as a child, the primary school teacher found he had time to spare during the holidays, returning to “the tools” and setting up his sewing machine once again. Making one-off pieces for friends and family, Mr Trimble soon found a niche reworking vintage garments into something meaningful and practical for clients, including his own father’s wedding jacket, which he fashioned into a waistcoat. “I admire my parents’ marriage – 48 years strong – so to wear part of the suit that my father wore on that day allows me to keep the memory fresh each time I button my waistcoat,” Mr Trimble says. “The original jacket was made by Segraves – marine uniform specialists – much of it being hand stitched and carefully crafted in the early 1970s.

“I felt privileged to continue the life of this fabric, to take the stitching apart, see how it was made, learn from the past and breathe new life into classic tailoring.” Mr Trimble is inspired by what he calls the “circular nature of sentimental items”. “Primarily it’s about the continuation of memories, but reduction of waste is a great by-product,” he says. Mr Trimble has recently been commissioned to rework a police hat belonging to the father of local man Adam Johnson into a bespoke shirt. Mr Johnson has had the hat for 40 years. “The most special part for me is allowing Adam’s memories to stay near to him,” Mr Trimble says. “I like to be trusted with people’s dearest memories and most sentimental items.” Mr Trimble says his philosophy for reinvigorating and making special items usable again is: “Wear them near when they are too far.” Visit petesews.com.au

WIth its unusual farming practices, QCamel is changing the way we think about milk. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.



Yasmin Brisbane with Taroom the camel during a Camels and Canapes tour


s everyday hump day when you work on a camel farm? One Sunshine Coast family is forging the way in camel farming, having created an innovative business to make the most of a lesser-known but nutritious product. Set on 607 hectares in Bells Creek, with the Glass House Mountains as its backdrop, QCamel is the only certified

organic camel dairy in the world and is growing from strength to strength with a winning combination of science and a lot of love. Owners Lauren and Peter Brisbane began the business in 2014 and now have 120 camels on site. Ms Brisbane says QCamel is not your typical dairy, with the friendly animals always up for a cuddle, especially as part

of farm tours. “It’s a tonne of fun – people love coming to us. “We just do things a little bit different and involve the community in what we do,” she says. “We don’t change who our camels are; we allow them to live the way we want to live, and they are very well looked after.” Living in central Queensland in the 1990s and 2000s to raise their three children Yasmin, MacKinley and Harry, Ms Brisbane took a liking to camels for their resilience in drought. In 2006, the Brisbanes funded a two-year study into the development of the camel industry and established the Australian Camel Industry Association. It was then they decided to go into farming and focus on the health benefits of the milk product, integrating camels as “business partners” rather than stock. “They are all named, and they all know their names, and they are loved and they know nothing but love, so that’s what they give back, they give love.” Ms Brisbane says camel milk has a range of benefits, particularly for gut and skin health, and is high vitamins A, B, C and E as well as calcium. “Camel milk has a different molecular make-up to dairy milk, so it’s actually the closest milk to human milk. “It doesn’t have the dairy allergens in it that dairy does so it is very easy to drink and it doesn’t have the whey proteins that cause dairy allergies.” Ms Brisbane says with high levels of

insulin it is a popular choice for diabetics and has several benefits that can reduce the effects of autism in children. The milk itself is described as tasting almost identical to cow’s milk but is slightly salty with a sweet aftertaste. QCamel has a range of other products, including cheese and chocolates, as well

as a skincare line that launched last year. “It’s suitable for sensitive skin and each one is mixed with a native Australian botanical.” QCamel is stocked at White’s IGA stores across the Sunshine Coast as part of the Locavores program promoting products grown and made within a 200-kilometre radius. The farm also hosts regular Camels and Canapes tours, giving people the opportunity to get up close with the lovable animals.

HAPPINESS COMES FROM WITHIN: LOCAL AUTHOR Caloundra life coach launches a new book. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.


Caloundra author is hoping to help others by sharing her own life struggles with the release of a self-help book. Anne Poole says Believe in Yourself illustrates how she found acceptance and courage in difficult situations, coming to the conclusion she is the only one who can make herself happy. “My story will touch a broad range of people who have experienced rejection, loss of parents, workplace bullying and those who are looking for tools and practical exercises to assist their inner growth,” she says. “It is a spiritual journey that I share about my connection to my higher self through taking time for self-acceptance, to action set tasks, spending time in nature and experiencing joy, which raises my vibration.” Ms Poole is a qualified human resources professional, accredited life coach and founder of Inspire for Life, and she says each chapter of the book has a summary of useful tools and practical

exercises. “The book is a platform to allow you to feel good, have fun and release joy. “For some, it will be validation that they are doing well, and now have extra insight with tools to inspire.” A book signing will take place on Sunday, February 21 at The BookShop at Caloundra on Bulcock Street from 9am.

BEERWAH TOWER GREEN MARKET IS BACK Beerwah Tower Green Market is up and running for 2021 with the first event of the year held earlier this month. Organised by the CWA Beerwah Branch, the markets happen on the second Saturday of each month from 8am to midday along Simpson Street and include coffee, live music, home baking, artisan stalls, stalls, free children’s activities and more. Organiser Debbie Ives says all proceeds go back into supporting the local community and the QCWA Beerwah branch. “The local Beerwah Tower Green

Market offers the opportunity to buy locally produced and made items,” she says. “It gives local makers and artists a platform to showcase their wares directly to their local community, and you get to meet them too.” For the first event of the year, music duo Kaedyn Philemon and Chloe Rodgers performed after making their debut at the Christmas markets in December. Ms Ives is also looking for more buskers and musicians to perform throughout the year. Email qcweabeerwah@gmail.com

Cr Terry Landsberg Division two (Battery Hill, Caloundra, Caloundra West, Dicky Beach, Golden Beach, Kings Beach, Little Mountain, Moffat Beach, Pelican Waters, Shelly Beach)

Caloundra Mountain Bike trails and hub I’m excited to announce that work has begun on the final stages of the Caloundra Mountain Bike Trails Master Plan. Council has engaged with Trailworx, an experienced mountain bike trail building company to deliver: • the first Queensland permanent dual slalom racecourse open to the public • a 500-square metre pump track with beginner and advanced features • mountain bike skills area • dual cross-country flow trail • new jumps line. Work on the Trail Hub Precinct will commence at the end of February and will include an amenities block, cafe, bottle refill taps, bike wash-down bay and other great additions to ensure the Caloundra trails are a great recreation destination for our community. Both projects are expected to be completed by July this year.

Otranto Avenue paths the way Work to replace the Otranto Avenue pathway with a new two-metre-wide pathway began on Monday, February 8 and is scheduled for completion by the end of February.

Footpaths are important on-theground networking facilities for all users to enjoy. This replacement footpath will create safer connectivity for residents. Thank you for your patience and understanding during construction.

Create Caloundra – results and next steps Last year our community had the opportunity to provide feedback about the community hub envisioned for Caloundra. You can review the results of the community consultation on council’s Have Your Say website. Council will be undertaking a second consultation in March to ask you, have we got it right? The Caloundra Community and Creative Hub proposes to create an arts, community and creativity precinct connecting The Events Centre, Caloundra Regional Gallery and new district library with open parks and street spaces through to Bulcock Beach. Until next time, please keep an eye on our Facebook page for the latest division two news and information. You can also contact my office directly by sending an email to Division2@sunshinecoast.qld. gov.au.

new report has found that Sunshine Coast businesses are outperforming the rest of Queensland in the current economic recovery. The quarterly results from the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland’s Pulse Survey of Business Conditions reveals an increase in seasonal activity locally.

“This strong performance and high business confidence is not surprising because we have such an incredibly strong and resilient business community here on the Sunshine Coast,” Caloundra Chamber of Commerce president Michael Shadforth (pictured) says. “The latest Pulse Survey results accurately reflect the overwhelmingly positive sentiment of business owners that I come across on the Sunshine Coast, especially amongst those in the greater Caloundra area.” Key findings • The Pulse Business Index (PBI) improved for the next 12 months and across all performance indicators • Sunshine Coast-based businesses are more confident than businesses state wide. • The level of demand and economic activity as a constraint is dissipating. • The buoyant December quarter 2020 will not hold for the March quarter 2021.

PROUD TO BE A SUNCARER Carrey Simons, Suncare Support Worker, goes home every day knowing she has made a difference. Before Ms Simons joined the team as a ‘Suncarer’ she knew she wanted to work in a job that was more fulfilling than what she’d been doing. “I met a couple of people who worked for Suncare and firstly, they seemed to love their jobs, and secondly, they were really happy outgoing people. I knew immediately that’s what I wanted to do,” Ms Simons says. She enjoys the variety of her job including taking customers to different activities, lunches and tours. She also enjoys her lunch allowance too. Ms Simons’ plans for the future include getting her bus licence and Suncare is helping with that. “I am proud to be a Suncarer and when I go home I feel like I have really made a difference.” As a growing organisation, Suncare is recruiting volunteers and employees for a range of different roles that support customers to remain living independently at home. If you are looking for a fulfilling career in which you will go home every day knowing you have made a positive difference in someone’s life, please contact

Designed to provide a solid and durable foundation for a tooth root, dental implants will look, feel and function just like a natural tooth. Reclaim the ability to eat, chew and smile with confidence, knowing that your smile is restored long-term. Dental implants are generally small titanium screws that are inserted directly into your jawbone at the site of tooth loss. For three to six months the screw is left to fuse with the bone to create a strong and functional support. Once this is complete, your prosthodontist or restorative dentist will construct implant-supported removable dentures, dental bridges or dental crowns to complete the treatment. Our implants come with a lifetime warranty (term’s and conditions apply). Coast Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Centre (OMS) utilises advanced technology to make your surgery as efficient as possible. Many procedures associated with dental implants may be claimable through Medicare.

The team at OMS wants to provide you with the best results possible, and this is why they use the highest quality implants available. They also offer the All-On-4 concept procedure, a technique that enables replacement of all of your teeth (usually one jaw at a time) with fixed bridges in a matter of days. There are a number of combinations of this technique which can be adjusted to suit your needs. Dr Wilson is also trained and experienced in Osseo-FrameTM dental implants. Call Coast OMS to make a consultation with Dr Ian Wilson to discuss your dental implant requirements.

MORE TIME TO DO WHAT YOU LOVE One of the many advantages of downsizing in retirement is the chance to upsize your lifestyle and enjoy your favourite hobbies. Nature’s Edge Buderim resident John Hawkins is a regular at the community’s purpose-built workshop. He’s a seasoned woodworker and recently realised his dream of handmaking a silky oak roll-top desk. He’s pretty proud of the achievement and really enjoys the mateship in the group. “The desk took me 330 hours over three months to build,” says John. “I put it on display in the leisure centre at Nature’s Edge Buderim to encourage people to come and use the workshop. The facilities are excellent and there are plenty of tools and electrical equipment.” With more than 20 members and growing, the woodworking group is available to anyone who is interested – and not just men. Group members make beautiful timber nesting boxes for the local native birdlife, bespoke occasional tables and furniture restoration, among many special projects. The woodworking enthusiasts are just one of many hobby groups at Nature’s Edge. From quilting and art workshops to line dancing and walking groups, there is something for everyone. Located in Buderim’s rainforest foothills and offering relaxed, resort-style

living in a secure environment, it’s no surprise Nature’s Edge is regarded as one of the Sunshine Coast’s best over 50s lifestyle villages.

If you are considering a lifestyle choice that gives you more time to do the things you love, talk to a lifestyle adviser at Nature’s Edge Buderim today. Phone 1800 218 898 or visit naturesedgebuderim.com.au.

DO YOUR EARS FEEL BLOCKED? Your ear canal produces a waxy oil called cerumen, which is more commonly known as earwax. This wax protects the ear from dust, foreign particles, and microorganisms. It also protects ear canal skin from irritation due to water. In normal circumstances, excess wax finds its way out of the canal and into the ear opening naturally, and then is washed away. When your glands make more earwax than necessary, it may get hard and block the ear. When you attempt to clean your own ears, you can accidentally push the wax deeper, causing a build up or impaction. At the Hear4Good clinic it is quite a common situation to discover that a hearing loss is actually temporary. The appearance of earwax varies from light yellow to dark brown. Darker colours don’t necessarily indicate that there’s a blockage. Signs of earwax build up include: • sudden or partial hearing loss, which is usually temporary • Tinnitus, which is a ringing or buzzing in the ear • a feeling of fullness in the ear • Earache. If you suspect that ear wax is a

problem, consult with your doctor or a hearing rehabilitation specialist. They can provide safe and easy removal options. Do not attempt to dig it out yourself or let an unqualified person do it. Last but not least, candles belong on dinner tables not in ears. Ear candling is a dangerous and completely ineffective method of wax removal.

Singles are choosing to move into over 50s lifestyle resorts in increasing numbers, with the combination of a secure environment, a fun social life, and an active lifestyle proving to be a perfect fit for those flying solo. GemLife Maroochy Quays sales manager Joanne Michalowsky says she has seen a significant jump in the number of singles choosing to live at over 50s lifestyle resorts. “Eight years ago, singles made up 15 to 20 per cent of homeowners but now it’s much higher. At GemLife Maroochy Quays, about 35 per cent of residents are single,” she says. “In addition to the fantastic lifestyle, the sense of security living within a gated community, as well as the ease in making new friends, is very attractive – especially for single women.” Rosemary Arrold says security played a prime role in her decision to move to GemLife’s Maroochydore resort last year. “The sense of security is a big plus when you’re single. Being able to lock up and go away without worrying about home safety or maintenance is hugely appealing,” says Ms Arrold. “I’m active and sporty so the facilities were also a big draw.”

Jeanette Mackenzie, who also moved to the resort last year, says that in addition to security, making a diverse network of new friends has done wonders for her social life. “I’ve met lots of lovely people and formed good friendships already. The residents get together regularly and have lots of laughs and catch-ups. Being single, I wanted to be among others around my age and feel safe and secure,” she says. For single men, the opportunity for an active and social lifestyle is equally attractive. Gordon Perlic will soon be moving into GemLife’s premium Sunshine Coast resort, GemLife Pacific Paradise, drawn by the location and lifestyle offering. “I absolutely love the Sunshine Coast. When I saw the resort and how close it was to the beach, I was sold,” he says. “Being able to enjoy an extremely active and social life really appealed to me. I work out every morning, swim, cycle a lot, and here I can get involved in lots of activities. It’s ideal – it gives me everything I want.” GemLife offers high-quality homes with first-class facilities, including luxurious country clubs, within pet-friendly, secure gated estates.

FLEXIBILITY DRIVES THE DESIGN OF LUXURY NEW HOME RANGE A focus on flexibility and choice drove the creation of B by Halcyon’s newest architect-designed luxury home range, The Daintree. Drawing inspiration from the lush rainforest-inspired lifestyle of Buderim, The Daintree range of premium doublestorey homes was designed by Queensland’s Base Architecture. Owner and Director Shawn Godwin says the houses were created around a flexible design principle so homeowners could customise their new homes with an array of options to suit their specific needs. He says The Daintree range encapsulates Halcyon’s goal to help homeowners ‘right-size’ their lifestyle. “This notion of downsizing comes primarily from the idea of kids leaving home,” Mr Godwin explains. “Yes, homeowners may be downsizing from a people point of view but they still have plenty of other things that keep their lives full – hobbies, grandkids coming to visit, a motorbike

Personal care

Health and wellbeing support

Cleaning and household tasks

Social connection

Nursing services

Home safety and security

Getting out and about

Concierge service

for weekend rides or a vintage car to restore – and they need the space to cater to their lifestyles.” The Daintree comes with a spacious four-car garage where homeowners can store cars, bikes, jet skis and boats or use as a multipurpose workspace for hobbies, projects or extra storage. Alternatively, the layout can be customised to provide for a two-car garage with the added floorspace converted into a luxurious first-floor media room. “Halcyon are leaders in what they do, and they’ve got a product that works really well but, to their credit, they constantly strive to find ways to make it work even better. “The Daintree, with its flexible design, means Halcyon can appeal to a wider range of homeowners and adapt to their specific needs.”

Are you ready for support at home? As you age, bringing support into your home can help you to remain independent for longer and improve your quality of life. You may have heard stories about people waiting 12 or more months to access the care they need. These stories are true. The government is continuing to increase the number of home care packages, but even so, the demand for care is greater than the number of packages available, meaning the wait can be long if you want the government to help pay for your care. Most people wait until a crisis has happened before applying for home care and any waiting time is then stressful. Firstly, speak with MyAgedCare (myagedcare.gov.au) and arrange to have an assessment completed in your home. This may be the most important thing you do for yourself. If you can’t wait, residential care might be an alternative or if you have money, you could choose to pay for care privately. To understand your options, speak with a financial planner that specialises in aged care. They can work with you to implement a strategy to have your needs met.

A better you today Doing the right things in life with respect to looking after our bodies is very important and only becomes more important as we age. Conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and osteoarthritis become increasingly more common in older Australians. Simple changes such as daily exercise, a balanced diet, sleeping well and making time for social and recreational activities with friends or family can make us feel better. Change usually starts from within but a support group can make things easier and, rightly or wrongly, helps validate gains. Despite this, many individuals still suffer from ‘burning’, ‘pins and needles’ or sciatica in the legs or arms due to arthritis of the spine and nerve compression. A cycle of taking painkillers, physio or massage sessions and GP visits then follows. Modern medicine takes a comprehensive approach to dealing with these conditions and a referral to a specialist neurosurgeon can help to inform you of all of the treatment options available and tailoring a treatment plan that’s right for you.

New subperiosteal jaw implant

When is it time for a joint replacement?

Wearing dentures can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Ever had your dentures fall out when you laugh or yawn? You’ll understand. With Osseo-FrameTM there’s a whole new solution. Until now, the only option for permanent teeth was the All-on-4TM concept, which consists of having all your teeth anchored on implants embedded into your jawbone. Where you have plenty of bone, All-on-4TM remains a great option. However, for people with minimal jawbone left, treatment with conventional dental implants can be difficult. Osseo-FrameTM is a new surgical dental implant option that can give you back your teeth in one procedure. With OsseoFrameTM , an extensively tested, custommade titanium frame is constructed using 3D printing, which is then directly fixed to your upper or lower jaw. At Coast OMS we arrange a low-dose CT and an intraoral scan. The frame and bridge are custom manufactured, and often the frame is covered by your private health fund. Once you make the final decision, Coast OMS will arrange the rest – get ready to rediscover your smile.

Patients with symptomatic hip and knee osteoarthritis will often ask me if they should have joint replacement surgery. This decision comes down to a balance of risk versus benefit. Considerations in this analysis include the severity of the pain, the impact on their quality of life, activity profile, age, other health problems as well as having appropriate attempts to manage the problem non-operatively. If the potential risks are higher than the potential benefits, I will inform patients they are not a candidate for surgery. We will then have a long conversation about the non-operative measures they can take to improve their quality of life. When patients are a candidate for joint replacement surgery, I always present the non-operative options as well as inform them about the risks and benefits of the surgery. It is never for me to tell patients when it is the right time to have elective surgery. This is an intensely personal decision with so many factors. Only the patient knows when the time is right.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)




Lions love to live in the lap of luxury, but avoid the temptation to blow the budget with some binge shopping. The full moon fires up your finance zones, and encourages your tendency to be hasty with cash and careless with credit.

Thank goodness Mercury is finally moving forwards. So all forms of communication should improve as you verbalise your feelings in more direct ways. Saturday’s full moon also lights up your sign, so confidence and self-belief are the keys to success.

The full moon illuminates your solitude/self-knowledge zone and Mercury moves forwards in your creativity zone. So spend some quality time letting your imagination percolate. Reading, meditation and contemplation are favoured.

Mercury is moving forwards, which will help a family matter or a project that has been somewhat stalled. But you still need to plan carefully and be extra patient. Saturday night’s full moon (in practical Virgo) lights up your hopes and wishes zone.





The pressure is on, and family members will also demand your precious time. So how will you keep all the plates spinning? Clear communication is the key. If you can convince others to collaborate, then you’ll finish tasks in half the time.

Money matters should start to improve, as Mercury picks up speed in your finance zone. The sun and Uranus send a confidence boost your way (especially involving a romance, or creative project) and then the full moon activates your aspirations zone.

Things should improve, as Mercury moves forwards in your sign. But don’t get so side-tracked that you lose sight of where you are heading. The Virgo full moon encourages you to make plans and put them into practice with discipline and dedication.

The sun and Neptune are in through Pisces, which encourages creativity and compassion … and confusion! This week Mercury is moving forward and the full moon’s in Virgo, which will help you be more grounded, disciplined and discriminating.

WORD STEP Complete the list by changing one letter at a time to create a new word at each step. One possible answer shown below.

This week the full moon lights up your conversation zone and Mercury moves forwards in your intimacy zone. The sun/Uranus connection also brings good fortune in the form of a close friend, mentor, a milestone or a travel opportunity.

Bulls can sometimes blunder around being (unintentionally) insensitive. But you’ll need to be extra responsive to the needs of children, teenagers or your peer group, otherwise Saturday’s full moon could trigger an emotional meltdown.




With Mercury moving forwards and the full moon lighting up your daily routine zone, it’s time to prioritise, organise and stabilise. And avoid being too blasé about a complicated issue (especially involving values, morals, possessions or finances).

INVESTORS ARE HOT ON COMMERCIAL PROPERTY Sunshine Coast office vacancy rates are dropping, reports a local property expert. WORDS: Tracey Johnstone.


emand is still there, in fact and counter to all COVID impact expectations, it’s improved in the commercial property market. A-grade office spaces are hot particularly those with long expiry date tenancies. The Property Council Queensland reports Coast office vacancies have decreased from 16.7 per cent in January 2020 to 13.2 per cent in January 2021. The only areas that are struggling is street-front retail and B-grade or lower office spaces. “From an investor perspective, we have been inundated with demand and enquiry,” Colliers’s Sunshine Coast managing director Nick Dowling says. “A lot of southern money want to come up here and invest and eventually start living here.” He guesses he has had anywhere between 25 and 50 per cent increase in investor enquiries. In industrial property, again long leases, sticky tenants and solid capital growth have been the attractions. “It’s undoubtedly been the shining

light in the market,” Mr Dowling says. “Back in 2013 to 15 we were averaging 35 lots of industrial land sold each year. Last year, our office alone sold 72. Including other agents, I suggest there was over 100.” This demand is being driven by the e-commerce sector of warehouse to customer, and by the strong interest in 200 to 300sqm industrial units. “They are getting sold off the plan,” Mr Dowling says.

“This demand is being driven by the e-commerce sector of warehouse to customer

He is also experiencing southern business considering looking to relocate their businesses on the Coast in addition to other areas north of Brisbane. People are using their self-managed super funds to buy into this affordable investment option. And he says about 30 per cent of the market is being driven by, “Baby Boomers downsizing out of their homes and moving into higher-end residential stock, but they still need room for their boats, caravans, whatever it is”. “There is a lot of demand from that age and demographic to buy these units,” Mr Dowling adds. “It’s a trend that has added a new dimension to the market.” For those people not in the market yet, Mr Dowling’s top tip is to look where there has been infrastructure spend such as in the new CBD, near the Bruce Highway and Aura. A long lease term is also critical, particularly in retail, rent that is at market rate and location where businesses want to be placed. “I always say to people, be patient and don’t comprise your investment at what you are looking for,” Mr Dowling says. “When something good comes up, you will see it and should act quickly.”

lympics-bound talent Maeve Plouffe says she was rattled by a crash at the national championships – but it didn’t stop her from winning the women’s under-23 criterium. he 21-year-old and fellow ARA Pro Racing Sunshine Coast rider Matt Rice (men’s under-23 criterium victor) showed their potential at the five-day meet in Ballarat. Plouffe fell early in her race, alongside Jessica Allen, but overcame the incident in style. She was fourth across the line and was first of the young riders. “It’s a really hectic race when we combine the elite women and the under-23,” she said. “It adds a whole new dynamic to it because you’re potentially sprinting for fourth like it’s first, which is what I was doing.” “I was a little bit shaken after that crash I’m not going to lie, especially around that bottom corne. “But I’m super happy I didn’t give up in the last

straight”. Plouffe is bound for the Tokyo Games as a rising star on the track, but she’s also making an impact on the road. Meanwhile, Rice was delighted to win on Saturday. He finished ahead of Bryce Lanigan and Rice’s fellow Australian Cycling Academy rider Craig Wiggins. “It’s up there as one of the best moments of my career so far, I’m pretty stoked with it,” he said. “It’s one of the best feelings of my life. It’s pretty special to me as this is something I have always wanted to win. It felt cool.” Rice lauded the other squad riders for their roles in getting him to the line. “My teammates rode amazingly to get me to the front. This enabled me to get the legs out to run away with it and take the win,” he said. The ARA Pro Racing Sunshine Coast squad was not at full strength for the championships, after several riders were involved in a crash late last year.

Daniel Berger has stormed to a two-shot victory at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am as Jason Day tied for seventh for his equal best finish this PGA Tour season. Berger, who started the day two stroke off the lead, wasted little time getting going in the final round with an eagle on the second hole and capped off his 7-under 65 by holing a 30-foot putt on the par-5 18th for another eagle. Berger, with a total of 18-under-par 270, won for the second time since the PGA Tour returned to golf from the COVID-19 pandemic last year and for the fourth time overall. This was another wild chase on a crisp, breezy day at the iconic California course, and Jordan Spieth (70) went from leading to lagging as he tied for third at 15-under along with Patrick Cantlay (68). Maverick McNealy made five birdies on his closing eight holes for a 66 to finish second. Berger was in the group behind him and fired a fairway metal into the heart of the 18th green, 30 feet away. He only needed two putts for birdie to win, and instead finished with a flair. “That was the best putt I’ve ever hit in my life,” Berger said. Spieth finished in the top four for the second week in a row, a strong sign that his game is coming back after a drought that dates to his 2017 British Open victory at Royal Birkdale. Australian star Jason Day started Sunday’s play three shots off the pace, but a charge never materialised from the former world number one, who has not won an event since May 2018. Two front-nine birdies and two more on his way home, after a bogey on the 12th, gave Day a 69 to finish at 13-under and five shots behind Berger. Cameron Davis was next best of the Aussies with a final round 68 lifting him to a share 14th while Cameron Percy (70, tied-21st), Matt Jones (71, tied-34th) and John Senden (73, tied-39th) also collected pay cheques.

WILSON AHEAD OF HER TIME, SAYS COACH BYRNE philosophy when it comes to coaching. “The moment I hopped out the car and walked into Lightning headquarters I said to Kylee ‘[Phew]’, it was a deep breath,” Wilson says. “I think the great thing about Kylee and I is we come from the same mould.

“Vicki’s coaching mind is something I’ve only seen in two or three other people in our sport…”

We want to make a meaningful contribution to the players and the club. “Our conversations are stimulating and robust and we are forever curious in how we can keep moving the game forward, making the players better and doing something creative that will allow us to take that next step.” Wilson refused to pinpoint one individual player that she was eager to collaborate with, instead saying she was eager to work with each athlete to help them improve and grow. “I’m excited for the opportunity to work with an amazing club with a wonderful history, but also to reconnect



icki Wilson’s netball brain is almost unparalleled according to Sunshine Coast Lightning head coach Kylee Byrne, making the former Diamonds captain’s addition to the Club one to watch this season. Lightning recently announced that Wilson (pictured) would join the wider coaching team ahead of season 2021. Byrne has experienced Wilson as a coach, teammate, and colleague over the past two decades and believes the fresh perspective and tactical nous she provides will benefit Lightning going forward. “Years ago Vicki was the one coach that I always thought was ahead of her time and I’m starting to see that all play out now,” Byrne says. “Vicki’s coaching mind is something I’ve only seen in two or three other people in our sport. “I think this is the start of something for the club that will give us another point of difference and take us towards the future. “We’re a smart team, we can adapt, we can think, and Vicki adds another layer to that.” While Wilson is considered one of Australia’s most influential goal shooters in history, Byrne believes she has plenty to offer the full playing roster and the wide-ranging coaching role will reflect that. The athlete-centric culture drew Wilson to Lightning, in addition to her long-standing relationship with Byrne and believes the pair share a similar

with [Kylee] and sit alongside her in that coaching forum. “To work with the athletes of the calibre we have on the playing list is so

exciting, they all have amazing talents and skill. “I can’t wait to get started out on the court.” – Sunshine Coast Lightning

First Bells Beach Easter Classic looks to be cancelled! Now Snapper rocks looks like it is getting the chop as WSL puts its hand out for some cash. Not looking good for the pro surfers. But the Ma and Pa Bendall comp is set to return this year after missing last year due to COVID, so this could be the event of the year for surfing. It’s a great event with a great vibe! Waves this weekend with Maroochydore/Alex stretch the pick!
