THE LIGHTNING’S NEW INDIGENOUS DRESS The Sunshine Coast Lightning is proud to wear a new uniform designed by Kabi Kabi Elder Aunty Hope O’Chin.


ach week, Sunshine Coast Lightning athletes wear their netball dress with pride. That takes on additional significance come Suncorp Super Netball’s Indigenous Round and in 2021 it is set to take place this weekend on Sunday June 6 at USC Stadium. The adrenaline and excitement of a USC Stadium home game is enriched with First Nations culture, education and recognition. This year Indigenous Rounds coincide with National Reconciliation Week, promoting the theme of ‘More than a word. Reconciliation takes action’. As a Club, Sunshine Coast Lightning

has invested more time and resources than ever to First Nations education and awareness and Indigenous Round provides a platform to reflect and show our respects. Lightning is proud to wear the Club’s 2021 Indigenous Dress designed by Kabi Kabi Elder Aunty Hope O’Chin across the Round 5 and Round 6 SSN matches. The crux of the design centres around a Lightning bolt cradled within a coolamon – a versatile vessel commonly used to cradle babies, carry water or food, as well as being used to dig the grounds. The use of the coolamon is very symbolic for a women’s sporting team. Aunty Hope’s design also includes a nod

to the Sunshine Coast through the incorporation of animals. The longneck turtle, Maroochy swan, a goanna and witchetty grub represent animals from the land and freshwater, while a saltwater turtle, dolphin and crab represent saltwater dreaming. “It represents the sacredness of all living things,” Aunty Hope says. “The sacredness of our connections as human beings to all living things – It’s about sustainability. “It’s about ensuring that you as Sunshine Coast people also share this connection with us.” In addition to the exclusive dress design, Lightning’s home game will feature traditional First Nations performances and activities, engaging with the Sunshine Coast Council and local Elders. As part of the Club’s wider community program, Lightning this year engaged with Confident Girls Foundation to facilitate a First Nations program, empowering local First Nations students through netball, education, life skills and leadership activities. A gift exchange between teams on Sunday will see Lightning present the Firebirds with a traditional nulla-nulla featuring the Confident Girls Foundation students’ artwork, which will take place on court pre-match. As a Club for the Sunshine Coast, built for and with the community, the ability to give back is imperative, whether that’s through raising cultural awareness and acceptance or in promoting a healthy lifestyle. Experience a Sunshine Coast Lightning home game at USC Stadium this Sunday. Watch the world’s best netballers live, right here on the Sunshine Coast. Celebrate the Suncorp Super Netball Indigenous Round. Tickets available to the Queensland Derby via sunshinecoastlightning.com.au.

HISTORY OF THE TEAM Sunshine Coast Lightning was established in August 2016, as one of three new franchises in the Suncorp Super Netball (SSN) League and is the Sunshine Coast’s first and only national, professional sporting team. Lightning is a joint venture between NRL Club Melbourne Storm and the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC). Both groups have played a critical role in bringing Sunshine Coast Lightning to life, with the Sunshine Coast Council also influential in the Club securing one of the additional SSN licences. In 2019, an additional 1000 seats were installed as part of the $9-million Queensland Government funded stadium redevelopment. First and foremost, Lightning was built for, and with, the local community. As a regionally based sporting organisation, Lightning continues to engage and integrate the Sunshine Coast community at all levels.

A bed for the night The Sunshine Coast’s first sleep bus will give up to 20 homeless men a safe, warm place to sleep at night. Now, $100,000 needs to be raised for a Pink Sleepbus for women and children. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa


ithout a permanent place to call home, a Sunshine Coast man fears being fined by the council each night as he shelters from the cold in his van. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous for safety reasons, tells My Weekly Preview he is unable to find accommodation and has decided to live in his van permanently. “This is just day-to-day living, it’s just existence,” he says. “I try to keep a low profile and be as less visible as possible, so I don’t get in trouble. “I don’t want to be paying fines for being homeless – that is just double standards. It annoys me when the council calls it camping. When you are homeless, your daily existence is living out there without a house.” Previously working for companies like Nokia and Channel Nine, the skilled technician battles a chronic health issue and says due to needing privacy for his health, the “nomadic” lifestyle is his only option. He has been on the Sunshine Coast for the past three months and sleeps in a converted minibus. He says caravan parks and rental accommodation are either too expensive or full, and shared accommodation is not a viable option.

12 My Weekly Preview | June 3, 2021

“With my health issues I need privacy, I need quiet and need to be on my own rather than be in a shared place. “If there were private property owners who would allow parking for people in vans, I would possibly consider that. “The holiday parks are too expensive. There should be something with free camping or less expensive possibilities, which there are in some places, but you cannot stay there for too long.” While he feels fortunate to have a van, the man says it is heartbreaking to know that many locals are in similar situations of homelessness. “I feel sorry for the local homeless people more so than myself. There are locals that are just doing that for survival. I feel for people who are in less fortunate situations than me because there are people on the street without a vehicle like me.” The crisis stretches far and wide across the Sunshine Coast and Noosa Council regions, and both regional mayors have expressed concerns and willingness to help. In February, Sunshine Coast Council mayor Mark Jamieson, key government agencies, church groups and other community organisations met for a roundtable to address the crisis. At the time, Cr Jamieson, who chaired the roundtable, said discussions

focused on this year’s priorities to help address homelessness on the Sunshine Coast. These initiatives focused on innovative options including overnight accommodation, crisis options needed in our region and ongoing advocacy work required. Further north, Noosa is also bursting at the seams, as Noosa mayor Clare Stewart recently revealed. Cr Stewart says the affordable housing crisis in the tourist town is so dire the only accommodation option for one family is a tent in Kenilworth, almost 60 kilometres away. “We’ve got a major problem, affordable housing. We’re at absolute crisis (point),” she says. “We have very few properties in Noosa that are available for under $500 per week.” Cr Stewart gave the example of a family being assisted by the Salvation Army. “We’ve got a mum and two kids, she’s fully employed, she had to be out of her rental because people were moving back into their home by Friday, and this was a Wednesday. “The only place we could get her was a tent in Kenilworth. “I moved a mayoral minute in December to look at rezoning some areas from low density to medium density to put more residences on.”

THE SUNSHINE COAST’S FIRST SLEEP BUS The Sunshine Coast’s first sleep bus will be introduced this year as one of the solutions to the region’s growing homeless emergency. With housing and rental prices soaring, recent statistics from Maroochy Neighbourhood Centre reveal 769 people within the Maroochydore community are living rough on the streets. Community development coordinator Mark Ellis says these statistics do not include “couch surfers” or those living in tents, and that 63 per cent of people who present to the centre in need of housing help are men. “We are getting hammered and we are seeing a lot of new people,” Mr Ellis says. “It’s not just men, it’s females and families who cannot afford the increase in rent. “Their tenancies have finished and if they want to stay, they need to look for another $80 a week.” Mr Ellis says it is an all-too familiar story, and just recently a woman, whose husband is stranded overseas, has been forced out of the family rental after the weekly price was increased by $85. “Mum is here with three young kids trying to survive while her husband is stuck overseas, and the rent went up $85 a week and now they are sleeping in a tent myweeklypreview.com.au

31/05/2021 4:41:46 PM


The bus will be parked in Maroochydore and sleep 17 to 20 men each night in Japanese-style pod beds with a television, heating, airconditioning, lights, ports to charge mobile phones, as well as room for pets, to allow men to have a safe night’s sleep. “If we had the bus here, you could jump on board. You’re safe and get up in the morning, have brekky, have a shower and look at your day ahead,” Mr Ellis says. The centre can then connect Sleepbus users with various service providers to help them navigate the next step in securing more permanent housing. Now a fundraising campaign has begun to raise $100,000 for the Maroochydore Pink Sleepbus to fill the void for women and their children. Sleepbus was founded 2016 with projects now in Melbourne, Canberra and Queanbeyan, as well as the two Maroochydore buses. Each sleep bus has a designated

and essentially homeless. “The $85 a week was just too much for them.” In an effort to alleviate the high percentage of men living rough, Maroochy Neighbourhood Centre last year began a fundraising campaign to fit out a Sleepbus to house around 17 men each night. “We were lucky enough to raise the $100,000 to get the bus,” Mr Ellis says. “The bus is now getting prepared; they’ve ripped out all the seats and it is going away to have all the bedframes fabricated.” Sleepbus founder Simon Rowe is congratulating the local community on its fundraising efforts in a statement to social media. “What an amazing effort by Mark and the community on the Sunshine Coast,” Mr Rowe says. “Now that the funds have been received, the work can begin.”

COMMUNITY COMMENTS “This is such a wonderful initiative. And to know one for women and children is in the planning – great work Maroochydore Neighbourhood centre. But how sad it is needed.” – Alis “Wish we had [this] last year when I could find zero emergency accommodation in my crisis but glad my friends can look forward to a safe, warm place to sleep.” – Cheryl

Sleepbus founder Simon Rowe with a fitted-out bus, similar to what the Maroochydore Sleepbus will look like parking spot, where it stays for the night, from 8pm until 8am, 365 nights a year. Mr Ellis says it is important to intervene with the homelessness cycle before people in these situations begin to lose hope. “There is homelessness and then after homelessness there is hopelessness, and once someone reaches that point it’s really hard to bring them back,” he says. Mr Ellis fears the homelessness crisis will become worse before it gets better and says the cost of keeping someone sleeping rough safe each night comes with a hefty price tag. “If people actually realised how much it costs to keep a person homeless, they would be shocked,” he says. “It costs around $30,000, being conservative, a year to keep someone living on the streets. “That is just the basics of hospitals, ambulance, police, safety and court. “We don’t get funded to do what we do, we do it because they are part of our community.”

“This is actually more valuable than people realise. One of the barriers to homeless people finding employment and permanent accommodation is the fact that they cannot sleep safely all night and therefore tend to sleep during the day. You’d be amazed how things can change after a good night’s sleep where you feel safe.” – Karen A Mooloolaba reader has also commended the initiative. “Great idea ... it’s a temporary fix but if it gets people a warm safe place for the night, I’m all for it. Rentals are scarce and overpriced. [It] makes the future look grim. Huge thanks for this bus.” – Jennie Meanwhile Noosa resident Fiona is calling for more to be done to address the issue itself. “The problem of growing homelessness needs to be solved at a deeper, systemic level. Things like the sleep bus are essential, albeit band-aid measures that address the immediate needs of people. But they don’t address the cause of the problem, which is housing affordability and everything that influences that, including government policy.” – Fiona

Locals are encouraged to have their say on the review of the Mary Basin water plan, which covers the Sunshine Coast. “This review will take into consideration new information about climate change and the risks and impacts to water allocation and management,” Minister for Water Glenn Butcher says. “We’ll be engaging directly with Aboriginal communities across the Mary Basin water plan area to ensure cultural values, aspirations for water allocation and management [to] help inform this review. This early stakeholder input will help shape a draft replacement water plan which is expected to be released for further public consultation in late 2022 to ensure a fair and sustainable outcome for all.” Visit rdmw.qld.gov.au.




A popular Sunshine Coast landmark is set to be refreshed and the community has been asked to provide some inspiration. Unitywater is calling on local residents to get involved in an artwork renewal project that will revitalise artwork on the 17-metre-high Point Cartwright water reservoir. The picturesque mural, installed by Unitywater in 2016, features local marine life, including whales and turtles and the native Richmond birdwing butterfly. It is being renewed after five years of weathering the conditions of salt spray, sun exposure and high winds. “We want to hear the community’s ideas for the artwork’s renewal, which may include keeping the original artwork, designing a new artwork or installing public art, like sculptures, around the water reservoir,” Unitywater’s Katherine Gee says. Have your say at communityhub.unitywater.com.

University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials is beginning a study in collaboration with Australian biotechnology company Vaxxas, the developers of a potential new needle-free vaccine delivery technology known as the high-density microarray patch (HD-MAP). Vaxxas chief development officer Dr Angus Forster says the study will investigate the safety and tolerability of a measles and rubella vaccine delivered by HD-MAP and assess whether it provides an immune response comparable to a standard intramuscular dose as delivered by needle. The study requires healthy volunteers aged 18 to 50 years old who are in good general health and have a body mass index within the range of 18 and 32. Visit: usc.edu.au/trials.

WISHLIST FUNDS $72K COLPOSCOPE Hospital charity Wishlist is making a big difference to patients awaiting a potential cancer diagnosis. The local organisation recently funded a $72,365 colposcope to lessen patient wait times and aid faster diagnosis of women’s cancers. The equipment is used by the gynaecology team at Nambour Hospital for women needing to have a procedure after an abnormal cervical screening test. Wishlist CEO Lisa Rowe says the charity is proud to fund the equipment to allow more women to be seen in shorter time frames. “I’m told this service sees more than 1000 women a year, and as you can imagine, there is a lot of anxiety around these types of diagnoses,” Ms Rowe says. “Early detection is key, so we are thrilled to be able to purchase this equipment to help the Nambour clinic and local patients.” Money for the equipment was made possible thanks to donors and corporate sponsors.

Police from Sippy Downs are asking motorists to slow down on local roads, especially around schools after 23 infringement notices were issued for speeding through school zones in a single day. Acting Sergeant Sandy Atkinson says on Wednesday, May 26, police were out patrolling school zones at Chancellor Park and Harmony after several complaints from residents, school staff and parents about speeding motorists. “Most motorists do obey the 40-kilometre school zones, however it was disappointing to detect so many drivers exceeding the 50-kilometre speed limit. Four tickets were issued to motorists for driving more than 20 kilometres over the speed limit.



Imagine a world where there was no drought and access to clean, safe and sustainable water was no longer a problem. Two students at St Andrew’s Anglican College are one step closer to making this a reality, winning the Gen[in] Student Entrepreneurial challenge and $4000 prize money on May 28. Year 10 students Kia Pulo and Ethan Bland have developed ‘Gen Aquarius,’ a product that has been designed around the philosophy of a clean, safe, and sustainable future for how we generate water. The device, which they have developed through extensive research and community consultation, uses a nanofibre to collect water from the atmosphere around it, alleviating the need for a pre-existing water-source.

In a stark and ongoing reminder that domestic and family violence is an unwelcome scourge in the community, Sunshine Coast Council has unveiled four bright red benches across the region. The Red Bench project is the brainchild of not-for-profit charity Red Rose Foundation, which started the campaign in the hope that the benches will raise public awareness and provide an opportunity to remind people of the unacceptable presence of domestic and family violence in communities. Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson says benches have been installed at Nambour, Alexandra Headland, Caloundra and Maleny. myweeklypreview.com.au

Mooloolaba SLSC is calling on locals, and past and present members, to get involved with the surf club’s centenary, with the launch of the Mooloolaba SLSC-specific 100 years Facebook group. Members of the public can join the centenary group, check out the images, and share their own. The 100 years Facebook group already has a library of historical images and film footage from the past 100 years. Images

include Prince Charles visiting Mooloolaba, the original clubhouse in 1933 and the Buderim to Mooloolaba road from 1918. It is a fascinating insight into the life of Mooloolaba SLSC and the local Sunshine Coast community as a whole. The 100 years committee would like anyone who has had an association with Mooloolaba to share their photos and memories of Mooloolaba SLSC and Mooloolaba township past and present.

They could be an active member, former nipper, been rescued or competed at Mooloolaba or just love this beautiful place we call home. Some images may be selected to feature in the Mooloolaba SLSC 100-year book to commemorate this auspicious occasion. The Facebook page will build awareness and inform the local community of the exciting 100-year celebration events. “Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club will be 100 years old on November 19, 2022,” Alan Murray, chairman of The Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club 100-year committee, says.

“To celebrate this milestone, a centenary committee is organising a series of activities over the 22/23 lifesaving season. As a permanent reminder of Mooloolaba’s 100-year history, a centenary book will be produced, complemented by a pictorial representation of lifesaving at Mooloolaba over the decades, to be showcased in the foyer of The Surf Club, Mooloolaba. “A re-enactment of beach patrols and surf sports will be demonstrated on the

beach to coincide with the first patrol at Mooloolaba in early 1923. Concluding the celebrations, there will be a gala dinner in July 2023.” The Mooloolaba SLSC’s 100 Year History book will be one of the club’s centenary celebrations centrepieces. It will provide a tangible record of all the years that have gone before. It will showcase a rich history of individual and joint achievement dating from a time when Mooloolaba was an

isolated settlement of holiday shacks surrounded by scrub, river flats and sand dunes to the iconic holiday destination it is today. “What an exciting time for Mooloolaba SLSC and every member of our community who has been involved with the club,” Mooloolaba SLSC president Darryl Johnson says. “Mooloolaba is one of the most recognisable beaches and towns in Australia and to have our club patrol our beach and support our community for a century is something to celebrate.”

Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club • More than 1425 members • Each season, lifesavers complete 14,000 volunteer patrol hours • They perform more than 1800 preventative actions and rescues per season • The Surf Club, Mooloolaba’s supporters club, hosts more than 260,000 visitors per year • It has 50,000-plus members • Mooloolaba Nippers has more than 400 children participating per season and Starfish Nippers for children with disabilities. mooloolabaslsc.com.au

PEOPLE IN NEED TO ACCESS GROCERIES VIA NEW KINDNESS INITIATIVE, RACK Coast locals encouraged to donate toward grocery vouchers as food charity Gateway sees spike in families needing help.


aloundra’s Gateway Care launches Random Acts of Community Kindness (RACK) initiative that allows people to purchase vouchers that families can use toward much-needed groceries. Gateway director, Amanda Peterson says the RACK vouchers are a way to show kindness while providing practical support to families and people on the Sunshine Coast that need help. “Gateway has over 10,000 families on its database and last year alone, we provided support to 3500 families – an increase of 50 families each week against previous year averages. We know that the cost of food and living can at times exceed what many people can afford and many families are crying out for help. “In April 2021, Gateway had a further 143 new families join. The number of families we are supporting has increased by 46 per cent over the last five years and reflects the continued growth and need in our community for services for people who are struggling,” Mrs Peterson explains.

Amanda Peterson and Tom Lew Jason Hunt, Member for Caloundra, says he welcomes the initiative and hopes Sunshine Coast residents will show their generosity buying vouchers to support families in need. “There’s a real need for a service like Gateway and RACK is a great way to practically provide support to families who are struggling to put food on the table. We

know throughout the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused additional stress and hardship for many people, but the Sunshine Coast community is strong, and when there’s a need for support, locals chip in. And RACK is the perfect opportunity to do just that,” Mr Hunt says. Mrs Peterson advises that the RACK vouchers entitle the recipient to $30 off their grocery bill. “With the average daily spend at Gateway being less than this amount, this means that for many people, their daily groceries are covered and for some families, this may be enough to meet half of their regular weekly grocery bill,” she adds. RACK vouchers are tax deductible and can be purchased at the Gateway Food Centre, by phone or as a donation via the RACK Initiative page on the Gateway website. “Each voucher is worth $30 and people can buy as little or as many vouchers as they like. We’re offering the fourth for free when someone buys three. People can remain anonymous, if desired,” Mrs Peterson says.

Gateway encourages and welcomes individuals and likeminded community groups to support this initiative. To launch this initiative, Gateway will also gift RACK vouchers to various local charity groups including Kyabra, The Salvation Army, Rotary Club, Caloundra and Baringa Community Centres, St Vinnies as well as local, state and federal government agencies. “We would love the initiative to be ongoing and run indefinitely,” Mrs Peterson adds. “At Gateway Food Centre, we’re all about food and connecting. People don’t care about how much you know until they know how much you care. We want the people of the Sunshine Coast to know that there are people that genuinely care.” These vouchers can be used in one purchase – for example deduct $30 off total bill, or alternatively the remaining unused balance can be transferred onto a members Gateway Membership Card where they can redeem the credit. If you would like to purchase vouchers, email amanda@gatewaycare.org.au.

Osteo turns to comedy


t’s not often you come across a man who has mastered both osteopathy and comedy, but then again, Christian Lutz doesn’t do things by the book. The 47-year-old single dad is preparing to close the doors to his Bli Bli osteopath business later this month in order to take his comedy show around Australia. Not only will it provide his children, Archie, 11, and Tori, eight, with the experience of a lifetime, but Mr Lutz says he wants to show his children how important it is to follow your dreams. Mr Lutz has been drawn to comedy since he was a young boy. He has fond memories of trips to the Hotel Esplanade in Melbourne with his father where they’d watch comedians, who are now household names, as they were starting out. “It always amazed me how good you feel leaving those shows, but at that stage I

Bli Bli osteopath Christian Lutz is in the business of making people feel better, whether that’s fixing a sore back through osteopathy or healing a sore soul through comedy. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane. never thought it would be something I’d do as a profession,” he says. “Not that everything is a laugh, but sometimes it really is the best medicine, as the pun goes, to diffuse physically or emotionally painful situations with my patients. To give people something positive and lighter to focus on, even if it is just for a couple minutes.” Around 10 years ago while living in Perth, Mr Lutz was gifted a comedy course for his birthday. He revelled in the weekend of workshopping ideas and creating a five-minute set. But it came undone when the organiser forgot to confirm his booking for the intended performance room. “What was supposed to be an intimate gig in front of supportive family and friends willing to pretend you are funny, turned into a 200-plus crowd of very drunk hooligans enjoying a Sunday arvo session

at a nearby Irish pub,” he says. “My voice was wavering and I looked like a penguin up there because I kept my arms tucked in so I didn’t show the sweat stains in my armpits.” That debut gave him such a buzz, he signed up to the Australian National Comedy Competition, RAW Comedy, for up and coming comedians in 2013. The bold move paid off, with Mr Lutz making it to the WA state final, which was performed at the State Theatre in front of 2500 people. “From then on I was hooked and started working on my craft and doing as many gigs as I could.” The way he captures family life and relationships in a relatable yet side-splitting way through observational humour and storytelling has seen Mr Lutz recently return from sold-out shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

But it wasn’t always that way. The first time he appeared at the renowned festival, only two people turned up. “I initially thought I’d just refund them the tickets and spare myself the embarrassment of performing. But the couple explained they had driven four hours from country Victoria into the city and had randomly chosen to come to my comedy show. Feeling bad I decided to perform anyway and it was the greatest lesson I’ve had in comedy. I learnt that you never know what people are going through and that it’s my job as a comedian to bring that energy to my performance regardless of the size of the crowd, or where you are performing,” he says. “After the show, which luckily they loved, they told me they had not been out for 12 months since their son had passed from a motorcycle accident. They told me how grateful they were to have a laugh again. It was like the show had played a small part in their healing.” Mr Lutz will be the star performer at a comedy fundraiser on June 5 for Sunshine Coast based charity No More Fake Smiles, which provides advocacy and therapies for children who have been sexually abused. Mr Lutz has performed at all of the charity’s major fundraisers since he met co-founders Annie Jones and Tracey Morris several years ago. “Although the cause is a serious one, the night is focussed on positivity and looking forward, bringing great food, great entertainment, and great company to make it a fun night and forget whatever troubles are going on,” he says.

Tickets to the comedy fundraiser are still available via nomorefakesmiles.com. au For details about the comedy tour, head to christianlutzcomedy.com.

Brittney Anning is sharing her cancer battle as part of Bloomhill Cancer Care’s annual fundraising campaign

IT’S GOOD TO SHARE Sunshine Coast woman Brittney Anning is opening up about her cancer battle in support of the Be There for Bloomhill campaign. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.


young Sunshine Coast woman facing a daunting cancer journey is sharing her story as part of Bloomhill Cancer Care’s annual fundraising campaign. Brittney Anning is an equine sports massage therapist, who at age 24 was diagnosed with melanoma. “Growing up on the water, I was always outside, on jet skis and boats or out riding my horse,” she says. “When I was 24, I noticed this black-looking mole

on my collar bone. It made me realise this black thing really needed to be checked out. It was a melanoma.” Ms Anning had the melanoma removed and was in the clear until just after her 30th birthday after dismissing consistent pain in her armpit. “I was diagnosed with stage three melanoma in my lymph nodes, which had started as a melanoma on the skin. “It quickly progressed to stage four within eight weeks.

“I had no idea melanoma could come back to haunt me, except on top of the skin. “If I had known it could have spread to the lymph nodes I would have immediately got the pain in my armpit checked out.” Unable to work, Ms Anning currently has 14 tumours in her bones, causing significant pain and threatening her mobility if the cancer latches onto her spine.

“I’m continuing with treatment, but the hope I did have for surviving is dwindling a little since immunotherapy didn’t work the way we’d hoped. “I’m now on targeted therapy, which is more about prolonging my quality of life rather than curing the cancer.” Ms Anning has been receiving support from Bloomhill and says art therapy classes, massages and mindfulness sessions are helping to ground her. “Art therapy for me is an escape. I love how you can express yourself,” she says. “It’s not about the finished product, it’s how you feel while doing it. “It takes your mind off appointments and medications and all that sort of stuff.” Despite her prognosis, Ms Anning remains hopeful and is continuing to live her life with no regrets. This June the Sunshine Coast community can help celebrate the locals who are touched by cancer through the annual Be There for Bloomhill campaign. The annual campaign is the biggest for Bloomhill Cancer Care in its effort to provide personalised support cancer patients and their families across the region. To donate to Bloomhill, visit www.bloomhill.com.au.

Siena Catholic Primary students Zeak Dos Remedios and Maddison Brady in front of a new mural paying homage to the local Gubbi Gubbi people

ART MURAL HONOURS GUBBI GUBBI CULTURE Award-winning Sunshine Coast Indigenous artist Jandamarra Cadd has joined forces with Siena Catholic Primary School students and teachers to help deliver a cultural art collaboration project. The project involved the school’s 628 students designing a 12-metre-long rainbow serpent depicting the story of life and connection to the local land. Principal Glen Bucklar says the mural was unveiled on June 1 during this year’s National Reconciliation Week. “This collaborative initiative is the latest to showcase our respect for local Aboriginal culture and our school community’s connection to land and people,” Mr Bucklar says. “Through visual arts and Indigenous symbols, we portrayed elements of animals

of this area including kangaroos who regularly share our school grounds, the crows who make us all aware of their presence daily, rain – giving life to the earth – a rainbow symbolising hope and promise, and fire, which helps manage the land and bring people together with stories, memories and dance.” Mr Bucklar says each student’s contribution to the artwork symbolises the Gubbi Gubbi people as the traditional custodians for more than 60,000 years and the continued responsibility to care for the local land. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of National Reconciliation Week, with the 2021 theme More Than a Word. Reconciliation Takes Action.

Division six (Buderim, Mountain Creek, Palmview, Sippy Downs)

Long-time volunteer Mik Briggs has been greeting marketgoers with a smile from the barbecue for many years



With National Volunteer Week done for another year, QCWA Beerwah is recognising the many helpers who assist at the local community market each month. QCWA Beerwah’s Debbie Ives says local Mik Briggs has been a supporter of the Beerwah Tower Green Market for many years. “For those that have been to our sausage sizzle, you would have been

guaranteed to be greeted with a friendly smile,” she says. “We thank Mik and celebrate all our volunteers that make a significant contribution to our vibrant markets that in turn makes our wonderful hinterland community stronger.” National Volunteer Week ran from May 17 to 23, 2021, celebrating the significant contribution of Australia’s almost six million volunteers.

PROPOSED KAYAK AND FISHING PONTOON AT BRAMPTON CRESCENT, BRIGHTWATER Many locals would have received a letter from council seeking their thoughts and feedback on a proposed public pontoon for the Brightwater area. Thank you to those for taking the time to consider the proposal and share their views. We have heard you and after reviewing all the feedback that was received and speaking with council staff, the decision has been made to not progress with the pontoon concept. It’s clear from feedback received that the community appears divided on the project, which is something that I expected given the

anecdotal feedback I have received over the past few months. I have spoken to the Brightwater Community Association, who have advised they accept the wishes of the community. While this may not be the news some of you may have wished for, I am pleased to advise that the funds can still be used for other projects in the Brightwater area. I look forward to sharing details of these in the future. Thank you again for taking the time to submit your views. Community engagement is so important to ensure that we achieve the best outcome for our local community. DIVISION SIX UPGRADES Council crews have been busy repairing roads in division six with recent resealing of Adori Drive, Gymea Court, Lurnea Crescent, Mara Close, Golfers Drive and Mountain Creek Road, as well as current repair works for stage one of Nyes Crescent, Buderim (from Mooloolaba Road to Gumtree Drive). KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED FOR POTHOLES To report a pothole on a council road, please contact council’s customer contact centre on 5475 7272, email mail@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au or visit council’s website.

An occupational therapist who took a career break to have a family has achieved a perfect grade point average of seven on her return to study, as she strives to become a doctor. Melanie Richmond, 37, of Shelly Beach, received a prestigious University Medal when she graduated from The University of the Sunshine Coast in April with a Bachelor of Biomedical Science. She is now in her first year of Griffith University’s Doctor of Medicine program at the Sunshine Coast Health Institute (SCHI), while also finishing a USC Science Honours degree. “I never considered that I’d be bright enough for medicine, and I didn’t have the financial support required when I was younger to take on an additional degree,” Mrs Richmond says. “But after a short time of working with patients as an occupational therapist, I knew I wanted to be a doctor. “I just had to be patient and wait for all the stars to align.” Mrs Richmond says the opportunity to study medicine finally came when her family relocated to the Sunshine Coast and funding was announced for the Griffith University medical program at SCHI.

RESIDENTS HAVE THEIR SAY The results are in for a new survey that reveals residents’ concerns in Golden Beach and Pelican Waters.


survey conducted throughout Golden Beach and Pelican Waters across a three-month period has gathered valuable information about on the opinions of residents in the local area. Conducting the survey, Golden Beach and Pelican Waters Community Association (GBPWCA) received hundreds of responses, and senior vice-president Tony Bridges says several major concerns were raised. “While a couple of the issues raised were perhaps unexpected, the major concerns included 70 per cent of respondents did not like the growth in traffic congestion, making it the number one issue,” he says. “Sixty-two per cent of residents surveyed were concerned about noisy light planes throughout the area [and] 53 per cent were troubled by reckless drivers, hoon drivers, jet skis and dangerous pedestrian crossings.” Survey co-ordinator Ian Louttit says concerns over the natural environment were also a standout. “More than 57 per cent expressed concern for some aspect of environmental

revealing they thought a project like that would be important for the community. “Over the past few months, GBPWCA Inc has been working with our local councillor Terry Landsberg seeking to move forward planning for the future establishment of a multipurpose facility.

Golden Beach and Pelican Waters Community Association’s Tony Bridges with councillor Terry Landsberg deterioration such as erosion of Bribie Island or threats to marine life,” Mr Louttit says. “In essence, I think people have chosen to live here because of the peace and quiet and the natural beauty of the area. “Most do not want such a wonderfully unspoilt environment destroyed by noise, congestion or environmental damage.” GBPWCA president Craig Humphrey says residents also showed interest in a community facility, with 78 per cent

“People have chosen to live here because of the peace and quiet” “We are quietly confident that next financial year the council will support the community association in the future planning of a multi-purpose facility.” The 12-page report will be used as a basis for discussion for the community association and will be made available to the council, government and other community associations for their reference. Questions regarding the report can be directed to GBPWCA Inc, PO Box 38, Golden Beach, 4551.

BLUE HEART ADDITION Sunshine Coast Council has secured three additional land parcels in Blue Heart Sunshine Coast. The land, located on River Road, Maroochy River adds more than 38 hectares to the quantum of land in the Blue Heart that is already in public ownership. These three lots will expand the council’s existing Coolum Creek Environmental Reserve to more than 433 hectares –the equivalent of approximately 860 football fields. The expansion of the council’s reserve builds on the Blue Heart partner landholdings, including the surrounding Unitywater-owned Yandina Creek Wetland and state government’s Coolum Creek Conservation Park.

CROMWELL STREET PAVES THE WAY Work to install a 1.8-metre-wide pathway along Cromwell Street in Battery Hill will commence in early June to provide improved connectivity and pedestrian safety. Division two councillor Terry Landsberg says construction is expected to be completed within three weeks, weather permitting. “Thank you for your patience and understanding during construction,” he adds. For updates, visit Terry Landsberg’s division two Facebook page, or email Division2@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.

Brady Sullivan Caloundra Chamber of Commerce acting CEO

Caloundra is now home to two spectacular French-inspired cafes with the recent launch of Le Rendezvous Cafe on Otranto Avenue. Lovely couple Johny and Robbi Moore, the owners of Caloundra’s newest business, jumped on the opportunity to live out their cafe-by-the-beach dream and have been amazed by the warm welcome that Caloundra locals have given them. Not only does Le Rendezvous offer baked croissants, scones and baguettes, but it also has an incredible breakfast, brunch and lunch menu including the pan-roasted prime rib eye fillet and Parisian-style chicken schnitzel. Just metres away from the Bulcock Beach Esplanade, the cosy cafe also offers cheeky waterfront views, which pair incredibly well with the elegant French-themed decor. We at the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce are so excited to welcome another fantastic business to the street and hope you find the time to visit soon.

MY OPINION Public health experts are saying 70 to 80 per cent of the population will need to be vaccinated before COVID-19 can be allowed to circulate in the community. Do that or be ravaged just as they have been in other nations. Canada opened up when about half its population had been given one dose and some cities there are feeling the dire effects, with ICUs full of young people and oxygen supplies running low. Let’s remember that the idea of vaccination is to prevent illness so severe it causes hospitalisation or death, not to stop us getting infected. The scaremongering is working. We are dragging the chain far more than other nations. About 3.5 million coronavirus vaccine doses have been administered so far in our country of almost 26 million people. It is believed only a tiny number have had the two jabs required for full coverage. The AMA has said we are ‘sitting ducks’ if we don’t get a wriggle on. One specialist this week said our lack of immunisation uptake would bite us on the backside. Our derrieres will be the least of our concerns soon, because when the waves start – and they will – it will be too late to scramble. Immunity and resistance takes time, and time won’t be something we have then. We have been living with COVID-19 ‘over there’ – in a fluffy dream compared with most of the world. On the Coast, our experience with the world-changing virus has been limited to brief, inconvenient restrictions on movement and interaction. But it will not stay that way, and the sand in the hourglass is running out. – For more news go sunshinecoast news.com.au

Jane Stephens is a USC journalism lecturer, media commentator and writer.

COVID REALITY IS SET TO BITE Are we braced for the waves of severe illness and death that are swamping other nations? Can we stand the cost, the pain and the misery here? I say we can’t and the simple answer is to roll up our sleeves and have less jibber and more jabber. I find the hesitation around vaccination stupefying. Our bubble of safety that is virtually COVID-free is certain to burst and unless we are armed and ready, the swell will jack up and the breakers will pound us. Somehow, even among the intelligent and informed, irrational fear has taken hold and the infinitesimal chance of getting a blood clot or a reaction severe enough to warrant hospitalisation has caused injection rejection. What exactly are these people waiting for? Billions of people have been vaccinated worldwide. A teeny portion have had a serious reaction. While I respect individual rights to choose what goes into their bodies, the consequences will be all of ours to bear. The borders will open. We live in a world and we can’t keep it away forever. Our economy, culture and communities can’t take it for too much longer.

MASKS: A NO-BRAINER We have been very lucky on the Sunshine Coast with a negligible number of COVID-19 cases and this may lessen the importance the health measures. The government has not effectively communicated the spread of the virus by human aerosol, but this is a major contributor to COVID-19 transmission. You can only see what has happened in the US after Donald Trump did not

insist on mask wearing early on. What’s the harm in wearing a mask when required so that we can live our lives as close to normal as possible? With the slow vaccination rollout, masks will be with us for a while. Believe me, if one of the very contagious Indian variants takes off here, I will be the first to grab a mask out of the drawer.

Oh, Ashley Robinson, I agree with you on so many issues. You say it like it is particularly in your recent article on school teaching. Teachers need to be respected for the professionals they are, by all levels of bureaucracy. On a daily basis they listen to and teach school students (our children). They really get to know the nature of the child and in a professional capacity they go about preparing this child for their future life. It is an enormous responsibility and one that is not always shown the appreciation and respect that is due to such an important role.

We are dog lovers not haters. We have had various dogs in our lives. Our dogs and our children’s dogs have always been loved, and always known their place – outside the house and never at the table or in the bed. Having managed caravan parks, we have found that people who live with dogs are a different breed – it is always not their dog that has made that mess. We owned a cafe locally some years ago, and the rule was no dogs near tables. What do we see now? I have been told we can’t discriminate, but what about people who object – aren’t we being discriminated against?

Ashley Robinson says there would be dancing in the streets if the ACCC actually did something about fuel price gouging.

Sami Muirhead doesn’t get fashion anymore. In an effort to be more stylish she tried wearing white, with disastrous consequences.


read the below online last week which was a part of a much larger story with photos of earthy looking folks rejoicing in the streets. “A Dutch court has ordered Royal Dutch Shell to cut its carbon emissions by net 45 per cent by 2030 compared to 2019 levels in a landmark case brought by climate activism groups, which hailed the decision as a victory for the planet. The Hague District Court ruled that the Anglo-Dutch energy giant has a duty of care to reduce emissions and that its current reduction plans were not concrete enough. “The climate won today,” Roger Cox, a lawyer for the Dutch arm of Friends of the Earth, which was one of the organisations behind the case, said.” To someone with limited intelligence like me, I struggle to understand what this means. According to the dancing in the street, it seems the planet is saved? My interpretation is probably a little less positive. To me, it might mean fuel prices will go up, so I won’t be rejoicing anytime soon? I will tell you that I would dance in the streets if the ACCC could actually prosecute

the price gouging bandits who put prices up very weekend and public holiday. The thing that amazes me is that apparently oil just happens to go up at these times which coincides with a holiday or weekend? The ACCC obviously agrees with that, as there never seems to be anyone prosecuted for fuel price gouging. I actually went to the website and scrolled down to this: “If you have

“…it might mean fuel prices will go up, so I won’t be rejoicing…” information a fuel retailer is not competing fairly, click here…..” Surely someone has complained when fuel has jumped from $1.29 to $1.79 overnight. So if the ACCC can’t sort it, maybe I take my complaint to the Hague District Court? Then I would be dancing in the streets with my newfound earthy friends, who probably drive their cars to every protest.

Ashley Robinson is the manager of Alex Surf Club and the chairman of the Sunshine Coast Falcons.


s anyone else having a mid-life fashion crisis? In my twenties, I loved clothes and spent too much of my pay on shoes. Then in my thirties and now forties, I had kids and I kind of forgot to worry about what I would be wearing. I am not sure where any style I had went, but it is sure missing in comfort and action. But this year jeans are too tight and skirts are too short. I am sick to death of my plain T-shirts and equally as unhappy with my beloved boho paisley-patterned dresses. What is a girl to do? I look at a jumpsuit and break out in nervous hives at the thought of how I would possibly pee in this outfit. Are fishnets only for Halloween or do women still wear them? Even applying makeup seems an uphill battle. I look like I am the walking dead with not enough make up on, or I look overdone with layers of foundation making me feel suffocated. I was hosting a fancy lunch for 400 business people this week, and of course, I stressed about what to wear. I did what any woman does and sent messy bathroom selfies to my girlfriends for their opinions. The clear winner was a red dress I have owned for three years and

never had the courage to wear. You have to be in a fierce mood to wear fire-engine red. But buoyed by their comments, I held my head high, squeezed into stockings and shoved my feet into tiny high heels. I spent an hour getting ready, which has not happened in a long time. I walked into that event with minutes to spare, until we were on stage feeling pretty good. My radio mate, Todd turned to me and said, “Oh you look like Bronwyn Bishop.” Um. Okay. This is not what I expected to hear. A few days later I interviewed jewellery entrepreneur, Samantha Wills and she told me she only wears neutrals. Perhaps that was the key. Samantha Wills looks like a supermodel, so admittedly she could wear a beekeepers outfit and look hot. I vowed to start swanning around the Coast only in bark, fawn or oatmeal. Okay, these are just fancy words for beige. I am attracted to colour the way a bower bird likes treasures, but I was in search of The (beige) Holy Grail. The first morning I wore white jeans and linen shirt, I spilt a coffee and pumpkin soup on myself. Perhaps I will just still to all black for a while.

HOW ACUPUNCTURE CAN TREAT PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY Many people ask how acupuncture works and how it can support your health. In this article we attempt to explain and provide your with some answers Acupuncture and chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) – how does it work? It stimulates the body to provide its own pain relief endorphins. Acupuncture has been shown to stimulate the release of endorphins to decrease pain and increase a

sense of wellbeing. Research has shown that the pain relief achieved with acupuncture works in the same pathways as opioid medications like codeine and Endone. However, there is no risk of addiction or withdrawal effects. Acupuncture has been shown to improve neurological function at the site of nerve damage. In cases of CIPN, one of the sites of nerve damage is understood to be the sensory nerve cell body at the

dorsal root ganglion in the spine, affecting the nerves that supply the four limbs. Studies have shown acupuncture for CIPN improves neurological function at the site of damaged dorsal root ganglions, in the spine. In a systematic review of eight trials, results showed between 40-60 per cent of participants (and up to 82 per cent in one trial) experienced significant improvements. What should you expect? Each session involves the insertion of very fine, sterile, single-use needles. At Ford Acupuncture, they do things a little differently, and get great results, using the body’s very own in-built mapping system in the brain. They treat the arms to send a message to the brain to increase blood flow to the peripheries, which will include the damaged feet and legs. People suffering from peripheral neuropathy already have inflammation and damage to their nerves in their legs and feet, so it makes sense that if you were to go and put needles into these areas the body would respond by increasing the inflammatory response, thus making it worse. The treatment is very gentle and, for most people, pain-free. The needles are left in for 20 to 30 minutes, while the patient can simply relax and rest. Changes such as a decrease in symptoms can occur immediately after the first treatment but typically take four to six treatments to occur. Generally, the benefits of each treatment are compounded, which is it is often recommended to have twice weekly treatments to begin with. A course of treatment consists of 6–12 treatments, though a number of patients opt for a second course or continuing treatments until improvements stabilise.

At Dolche we believe true beauty is not about changing who you are but allowing you to become the best version of yourself.

‘I AM JUST A LITTLE BIT HARD OF HEARING’ It is a statement that is heard all the time and it is not as innocent as it sounds. Even mild hearing loss can be associated with other health issues. There have been several studies linking osteoporosis and sensori neural hearing loss. Add this to the very direct link between undiagnosed hearing loss and early onset dementia and we see the value in early and regular hearing assessment. On the less serious side, hearing loss is also caused by However, many people are unaware of this, because you cannot look in your own ear. A good hearing clinic will offer wax removal. The take-home message is: if you suspect a hearing loss, get a hearing test, if

you are under 65 and don’t have a problem have a hearing test every two years, if you are over 65 schedule a hearing test every year. If you are on a pension it will not cost anything. Make sure you are tested by a qualified clinician in a hearing clinic. A hearing aid shop is more about selling you a product and not about your hearing health. Choose an independent and local hearing clinic, that should also guarantee they are Australian owned.

Dolche’s vision is to enhance women’s natural beauty by providing them with beautiful and luxurious treatments, ensuring they feel relaxed and pampered while addressing their overall skin health. Dolche was created and brought to life by Kate Elizabeth, who has been living and breathing the beauty industry since the age of 16. “I knew at a young age that one day I would open my own cosmetic clinic to provide women with a unique experience that only we can offer,” she says. After many years of hard work and dedication, Ms Elizabeth has turned her dream into a reality. Having travelled the world to experience beauty treatments from the most high-end aesthetic clinics, she has implemented the best of what she has experienced into Dolche, ensuring her therapists offer treatments that are of the highest quality.

That is how I want all our clients to feel.”

Gone are the days when traditional hearing aids were big, chunky devices that spent more time in the drawer than on your ear. Today, they are more discreet than ever and Phonak Lyric is one hearing aid that is really changing the game. This tiny hearing aid can be worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for months at a time*, thanks to its exclusive extendedwear technology, long-lasting battery and moisture protection. This means, unlike traditional aids, Lyric can be worn during regular daily activities, like sleeping and exercising – and you’ll never have to change a battery. Local audiologist, Michael Williams from Connect Hearing, is passionate about the benefits Lyric provides wearers. “Lyric is the only 24/7 wearable available. It is a fantastic option and for the right client, it can provide truly hassle-free hearing,” she says. Mr Williams has been working on the Sunshine Coast for more than 14 years, helping the community manage their hearing and has seen the positive impacts

this tiny device has on his clients’ lives. “Lyric ticks a lot of boxes for clients when it comes to their hearing goals and lifestyle needs,” he says. “When a client comes in for a hearing test we will complete a full assessment and work with them to understand their hearing needs, as well as explain all the options available to them.” If you’ve noticed any changes to your hearing, or would like to know more about Lyric, book your free hearing test today at Connect Hearing Buddina. *Individual patient needs may vary.

Simple changes can your improve health

How to train with injuries

Options for wisdom teeth removal

Did you realise committing to some simple lifestyle changes can significantly improve your wellbeing and quality of life? You don’t need to make drastic changes to improve your health, so make wellness a priority today with these five small steps: 1. Ensure adequate sleep. Eight hours each night is optimal. 2. Improve your diet with healthier, balanced meals containing plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Remember ample water too! 3. Get moving. A brisk daily walk to raise your heart rate has proven wellbeing benefits and can be easily incorporated into your routine. 4. Giving up smoking and cutting back on alcohol have proven health benefits. At least two alcohol-free days weekly is recommended. 5. Manage stress effectively. Make time each day to relax and unwind. Consider tracking your health goals on one of the many fitness apps available to keep you motivated. Simple changes like these can have a tremendous impact, and remember, it’s never too late for a wellbeing makeover!

Injuries can hamper our fitness goals and leave us demotivated, so when an injury happens it is vital to have a contingency plan. Put a plan in place and continue training, working around the injury, if your doctor permits. As an example, if you have a right shoulder injury, you can always train your legs or your left upper

At Coast Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Centre, we provide wisdom teeth removal surgery with treatment options from local anaesthesia in the chair to day stay general anaesthesia in hospital. As our dental care and nutrition have improved, there is less and less room for wisdom teeth. Each tooth in the mouth has a specific name and function, but there is rarely room to accommodate wisdom teeth. When wisdom teeth attempt to erupt through the gum tissue it can result in immense pain and discomfort. We will always assess the condition of your mouth before making any recommendations for treatment. All surgery is performed under appropriate anaesthesia to maximise patient comfort. This may include local anaesthesia (injections to numb the area requiring surgery, which is undertaken in the rooms), or sedation/general anaesthesia (where you are semi-conscious or unconscious), which is undertaken in a hospital environment. For more information regarding wisdom teeth removal surgery contact our experienced team today.

ANXIETY DISORDERS Anxiety is a normal human experience and occurs in stressful situations. Some anxiety in certain situations can be beneficial to performance, however, when anxiety persists or becomes excessive it can negatively impact our ability to function and perform everyday tasks. Yerkes and Dodson produced a Stress Performance Curve, which compares performance to stress level, showing the human response to stress that ranges through Lame, Healthy, Peak Performance, Sick and Disease and observes once an optimal level of stress is surpassed, performance steadily declines. Anxiety disorders are the most common class of mental health disorders in Australia, with one in seven adults experiencing an anxiety disorder in any year. Anxiety disorders are differentiated by the situations that trigger fear and avoidance behaviour. These may include separation anxiety, social anxiety disorder, phobias, panic disorder, agoraphobia, and generalised anxiety disorder (GAD). GAD is one of the most common disorders reported with a 2.7 per cent prevalence in a 12-month period in Australia or a six per cent prevalence over a lifetime, and is more common in females than males. GAD requires medical diagnosis which assesses intensity, duration and frequency of the anxiety. The most common physical symptoms include muscle aches, poor sleep, sweating, headaches, dizziness, nausea and diarrhoea and may also occur in children. Medicines and complementary medicines can be associated with anxiety and include caffeine, guarana, pseudoephedrine, salbutamol, Siberian ginseng, St John’s wort and a number of other prescribed medicines. Treatment includes psychoeducation, lifestyle measures such as healthy diet, exercise, sleep hygiene, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and medicine. CBT is a type of psychotherapy that involves recognition of worry habits, targeted reduction of symptoms, graded exposure to triggers and relapse prevention strategies. Many people suffering anxiety disorders believe it is ‘normal’ and may find it difficult to seek medical help. If you think you get anxious speak to a health professional you feel you can talk to, ideally your doctor or your pharmacist. Appropriate treatment can help. myweeklypreview.com.au

“Put a plan in place and continue training, working around the injury” body or do light cardio. During the injury phase, it’s not about progressing, it’s more about maintaining where you’re at and keeping the psychological emotions in check! When we exercise, we feel better within and tend to eat better, and in return it can keep us mentally and physically in check. Exercise also releases hormones like endorphins, dopamine and serotonin, so in return we remain strong, fit and keep our body fat levels under management.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)




The solar eclipse activates your hopes and wishes zone. Circumstances are constantly changing, so your dreams for the future need to be regularly reviewed and updated to keep pace with outside events as well as your inner evolution.

Thursday’s solar eclipse revs up your reputation zone, so don’t hide your versatile Virgo talents! Be proud to show the world what you are truly capable of. And is a close relationship testing your mettle? Habitual thinking and old solutions won’t help.

Mercury continues reversing through your education and travel zone. You can expect continuing disruptions, delays and misunderstandings. Don’t let that deter you! Aim to be flexible and adapt to constantly changing circumstances

The solar eclipse signals the dawn of a profound new way of seeing things. Venus and Uranus propel you into exciting new territory regarding a close relationship. Whatever happens, you’re in the mood to dive deep into the well of creativity.





Has a close relationship been going down a rocky road? Thursday’s solar eclipse encourages you to start communicating again. You’ll have to be proactive and patient though, as you make the first move and be prepared to wait for long-term results.

A work colleague, client or customer won’t behave in predictable ways this week, so don’t even try to anticipate what they will do next. Avoid butting in or offering advice. Uranus reminds you that a teenager, friend or lover requires plenty of room to move.

Make sure you keep yourself occupied in entertaining ways as the solar eclipse lights up your recreation zone. Creative projects and hobbies are particularly favoured. On the weekend, think twice before you blurt out something that you later regret.

The solar eclipse encourages you to balance your home/work ratio. With Mercury reversing through your home zone (until June 22), do all you can to bypass domestic drama. It’s time for Pisceans to sit down and smoke the peace pipe.

Rambunctious rams are feeling restless, as the solar eclipse stimulates your spontaneous nature. But – with retrograde Mercury in your communication zone – if you stretch the truth in dubious directions, you’ll be caught out.

AVOID THE URGE TO SELL AT FIRST OFFER Patience is key if you want to obtain the best possible price for your home, according to the experts. WORDS: Tracey Johnstone.

“…it’s about letting it run through to auction and see what the competition is” Ray White Caloundra principal, Andrew Garland


endors looking for a quick and cheap way to secure a good price for their property by jumping in at the first sign of an offer aren’t necessarily going to achieve the best outcome. Going to the open market, letting the marketing campaign run its course and trusting an experienced agent to present your home to a competitive auction crowd are strategies some of the Coast’s top agents recommend. Ray White Caloundra principal Andrew Garland and Define Property chief executive officer Ross Cattle both say the best way to determine what your property is worth is to get it out in the open market. “It’s what a proper real estate agent should be doing,” Mr Cattle says. If you want more buyers, more competition, then go into print Mr Garland also advises. “If you are not in print and relying solely on the web portals, then you are only exposing your property to buyers shopping in that particular suburb, or at best, if they click on ‘surrounding suburbs’ you might pick up on one or two suburbs,” Mr Garland says. “Otherwise, your market is really limited to buyers looking in that particular suburb,” he adds. Mr Cattle also offers that not everyone finds their property online. “I had someone come through 17 Melaleuca Street, Moffat Beach who was looking for a place in Cotton Tree, but when he saw the Moffat Beach advertisement he decided to have a look,” Mr Garland says. “If he hadn’t picked up My Weekly Preview

“If he hadn’t picked up My Weekly Preview, he would not have known…” Define Property chief executive officer, Ross Cattle

he would not have known that place was for sale because he wasn’t looking in Moffat Beach on realestate.com.au.” “I had someone who was doing the MWP sudoku and he saw our property advertisement which was on the same page,” Mr Cattle recounts. “He decided to have a look at the property. They ended up underbidders on the property, but they pushed the price up $150,000 above

reserve price. “Why I think print is so important is you need to find everyone who might buy that property. If you think you can do that just online, you’re wrong.” For some vendors, going off-market seems an easy and cheap path to selling. But Mr Cattle counsels that while the high number of off-market sales happening on the Coast may look like great outcomes, the offers might be well under market value. “There’s a property in Jacaranda Street in Mooloolaba that sold off-market with just a handful of buyers going through,” Mr Cattle says. “It was on-sold within 60 days of settling for another $200,000.” He advises vendors to be wary of commission-chasing agents knocking on your door saying they have a buyer for your house and not taking it to the open market. “In my office we have a saying; speed kills,” Mr Cattle adds. Going to the open market and following through to auction is paying handsomely for those vendors that stay the course. Mr Garland says of the 25 homes that he sold under the hammer at auction during this financial year, he has averaged a solid 9.9 registered bidders and, “the average amount over reserve has been $220,000”. He adds that buyers, when confronted by competition for a property in an open forum, are more likely to pay a higher price. “You are guaranteed there will be competition if the process is handled properly,” Mr Garland says. “Auction success rate has nothing to do with

auctions, it has everything to do with the agents conducting them.” He argues that just having a real estate operating licence isn’t sufficient to ensure selling success. Auction experience and knowing how to communicate with the vendor and potential buyers are critical skills. “For number 13 Derby Road, the highest offer prior to auction was $1.2 million and it sold for $1.581 million,” Mr Garland says. “There has been quite a number where this has been common. “One at Moffat Beach that I did at the previous in-rooms, the highest offer was $1.25 million and it sold for $1.699 million under the hammer at auction,” Mr Garland adds. “It’s not about not accepting the first offer; it’s about letting it run through to auction and see what the premium and competition is.” Mr Cattle has also seen several properties achieve a far better price at auction. “In the last six months I have seen properties with a prior offer on the Friday night before auction and the owners faced with a really good offer on the same terms as the auction and looking like they are a fair way in front of the other buyers, then go ahead with the auction and sell for a higher price,” Mr Cattle says. “They have got say an extra $30,000 by waiting another 12 or so hours until the auction.” That amount for most people is a solid gain.” myweeklypreview.com.au

The South African duo have been playing side by side as part of Spar Proteas for the past seven years, and that connection has flourished since Maweni joined Sunshine Coast Lightning in 2019. While the pair are often limited to shortened pre-seasons – an allowance given to them to return to South Africa to spend valuable months with family in the off season – their combination continues to strengthen. That was clear in their round 5 clash against NSW Swifts where both defenders were on song. Lightning Head Coach Kylee Byrne is confident there’s more where that came from and anticipates the pairing will only get better throughout the season. “The combination is always going to continue to grow with Phumza and Karla,” Byrne says. “They go home and spend time with their family and loved ones in the off season – they have limited interactions in South Africa. “They always are going to find each other during the season – that build is still coming.” Whether speaking Afrikaans to confuse their opponents or making a statement with their tandem ‘lift’, Maweni and Karla’s relationship is built on trust that has developed over time. “That absolute trust they have in each other is the foundation of what they have,” she says. “They talk about having each other’s backs and knowing by instinct what the other one is going to do and that will only get better and better every week.” After being awarded Player of the Match in Lightning’s Round 4 fixture against Swifts, Pretorius was quick to focus the attention back on her defensive partner. The reaction a mix of modesty, as much as it was ensuring Maweni’s strong performance was recognised. Sunshine Coast Lightning My Weekly Preview | June 3, 2021 69

with MWP’s man in the water

As the famous band The Cars once sang: “Let the good times roll.” Yep, I guess and hope everyone scored some great waves with last Saturday/Sunday being the pick. Well, there is more coming, but I think this might be more a wind swell, so get what you can. I did hear through the grapevine that the long-range forecast is also looking promising. But really that is a 50/50 at best. So, get what you can and be cool in the water.





with Steve Dingle

The inner reefs have been getting better and better with the cooler change and more and more quality snapper are being caught along with the odd good-sized cobia. The wider grounds are also fishing well for snapper and will only get better with winter coming on. In our rivers, bream are the fish to catch as their numbers and size are getting better and the Mooloolah River around the trawlers has had the best reports. Flathead along the drop offs are still being caught and a falling tide has been the best. Some early season tailor have shown up on our beaches but are still only in small numbers at this stage. The local dams have been a little quiet, but try fishing the deeper water with jig-style lures for your best chance.
