From the editor Well, it’s been a minute. More than 453,000 minutes to be precise, since I last sat in the editor’s chair. And let me tell you, time really does pass in the blink of an eye. As I have nurtured my baby son and watched him grow these past nine months, I have also watched as this magazine and its dedicated team have continued to evolve under the leadership of acting editor Gail Forrer. To Gail, I say thank you. I can genuinely say that I am excited to emerge from the background and continue the work to deliver a positive and independent publication that upholds journalistic integrity. When I stepped away from the helm all those months ago, it was at a critical point in the COVID journey as businesses, including our own, and residents navigated challenge after challenge. During those particularly tough

months, we worked hour after hour to bring you this magazine. Rather than the negatives, we focused on the positives. We aimed to bolster businesses via our Sunshine Coast Council-supported Operation: Bounceback feature, and with our shop local campaigns. We encouraged and fostered community and social connections, and the importance of mental and physical health. Since then, our teams across our entire stable of products have continued to bring the news that matters most, and it is with great pride that I reveal My Weekly Preview has won the state title of Best Free Newspaper at the prestigious Queensland Country Press Association Awards. To you, our readers and supporters, I say thank you for continuing to believe in us. Turn to page 14 to read more. Candice Holznagel cholznagel@myweeklypreview.com.au

Creative dream fulfilled A vow to live an authentic life has led Nambour photographer and artist Larissa Salton to some very creative places. WORDS: Gail Forrer


wonderful weaving of promise and possibility permeate the very threads, feathers and flowers that collaborate in the creation of Larissa Salton’s wearable art. The Nambour mother-of-five is open, easy-going and joyous when she speaks about the decision she made in 2008 to live her dream. That was the year she was involved in a devastating car accident when she was on her way to Beerwah as a support worker. Ms Salton survived the crash, but it took a 12-month recovery period and five operations before she could truly live her life again. Once she had reclaimed her wellbeing, filled with a wholehearted enthusiasm and determination, she dedicated herself to living an authentic life. For the 52-year-old, this meant making her creative dreams, particularly photography, come true. “If ideas bubble up in middle of the night, I have a pen and paper ready beside my bed, so I can wake up and write them down,’’ she says. In the car she has another set of

Larissa Salton’s wearable art photographed by Szabi Nemeth, and (inset) Larissa Salton stationery at hand to do the same job. “If I see the sun shining on something, and the light seems just perfect, then I pull up and take down the time and address to get back out there and take a photograph.” Ms Salton’s art studio is next to her home in Nambour. She loves the surrounding hills, the environment and the people. It’s here from her studio she conducts photographic workshops that feature the special edge of her wearable art. The idea to combine her photography and wearable art was one made from necessity. “My photography business was badly affected by COVID. So, I came up with the idea of including photography with my wearable art.”

The photos evidence the creative spirit underpinning tying together the combination. The choice of totally recycled materials used in each production echo her environmental consciousness. At times she emphasises this sentiment with the selection and making of her photographic scenarios. For instance, in one photograph, a young woman (Ms Salton’s daughter) dressed in what appears to be a shredded plastic costume (created by her mother), lies lifeless and bedraggled on the shore as the tide reaches out and circles her. The scene, both surreal and ethereal, highlights the plight of our ocean and marine life as it is overcome by pollution. True to her environmental values

when it comes to purchasing art materials, Ms Salton steers clear of commercial outlets, preferring to upcycle or recycle materials. “A friend might call me and say there are nuts dropped from trees on the ground – and I’m over there to pick it up.” Others, after a relationship break-up, are keen to pass on a wedding dress. “I pull them apart and give them a whole new start in life,” Ms Salton says. So where were the fires of her irrepressible imagination first lit? “When I was child, my mother wouldn’t let us watch TV; instead she gave us her big craft box and told us to go and create something and bring it back and show her,’’ she says. Ms Salton has won numerous local and international awards for photography and wearable art, including first place and people’s choice 2019 and 2021 at the Australian Body Art Festival as well as a Clayton Utz Art Award 2020 finalist. For more on Ms Salton’s photography and wearable art workshops visit larissasalton.com.au or the Hinterland Avantgarde Creatives Facebook page.

You can see Larissa Salton’s wearable art installation, The Elements, at the opening night of the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show, Wednesday, June 9. The 115th annual show is on from June 11 to 13 and is a celebration of local producers, creators and foodies.

Approval FACTS

To vaccinate: the big debate Australia’s chief medical officer Paul Kelly is open to introducing incentives to boost immunisation rates, including the free beer and lottery tickets on offer overseas. Whether this is viable remains to be seen. But the goal is clear: to vaccinate as many Australians as possible against COVID-19. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has walked back one potential incentive – introducing vaccine passports for uninhibited interstate travel in the event of local lockdowns. Medical professions backed the proposal but it was opposed by premiers and some members of the federal government. – AAP

458 million This is how many people around the world are now fully vaccinated. It will cost another $45-59 billion in the next 21 months to ensure global adult immunisation. COVAX is a program to help less-wealthy nations get access to the vaccine and, as of late May, 71 million doses have been administered under the program.


8 My Weekly Preview | June 10, 2021

According to WHO, the vaccine is predicted to prevent the loss of more than $485 billion to the global economy every month.

The Pfizer vaccine was approved by the TGA for use in Australia in January 2021, and the AstraZeneca vaccine was approved in February 2021. The decision is based on chemistry, manufacturing and toxicology data, among other things, and subject to reports.

The federal government has committed to supply the community with both Moderna and Novavax subject to approval by the TGA. If approved, these vaccines will be available in the second half of 2021.

As of Monday, almost 24,700 vaccine doses had been administered on the Sunshine Coast. Across the nation, 5,016,352 doses had been given. Meanwhile, Queensland launched a vaccination blitz last weekend resulting in 17,032 doses being administered.

“Zero doses give you no protection. One dose gives a very good protection quite quickly.”

can you get it? In addition to those who were already eligible, including over 50s, adults aged 40-49, Indigenous Australians aged 16-49 and NDIS participants aged 16 and over can now be vaccinated. Visit health.gov.au

Gaming as a career choice What would you do if your child left their studies to become a professional gamer? Here’s what played out with one Sunshine Coast youth. WORDS: Gail Forrer


o you get a ‘real’ job or follow your dreams? Does the security of a regular wage hold sway against the possibility of living the dream? Ultimately, it is about your level of risk-taking and dedication. If you are young, it can also be about parental support to back your potential. Ian Thorpe, one of Australia’s greatest swimmers, was gifted with a strong physique, capacity to develop a steely mental stamina and a family willing to transport, finance and support their child’s sporting endeavours in thousands of ways. As Ian Thorpe stood on the podium of the 2000 Sydney Olympics accepting his stream of medals, he epitomised the mental discipline and physical dedication to win gold. In the background, his parents told media how grateful they were the hours they had put in with their son had paid off. However, they also acknowledged all the other dedicated parents who had not reaped these rewards. Today, Australia is boasting another style of sporting champion. Think Jesse (aka Chazz) Mahoney. The 22-year-old Sunshine Coast lad is fast gaining a global reputation in esports – an electronic sport with a very different sort of playing field, in this case – the electronic screen. This new sport also demands family support, but it usually comes in the form of financing computer equipment, gaming software and in Mr Mahoney’s case, a mother who ignores snide remarks about the idea of video gaming being a ‘real’ career. Nevertheless, after her son’s recent success, she joins the small number of parents whose children’s success has enabled them to achieve a full-time career in their chosen sport. Additionally, her wholehearted support for her son’s video gaming skills has been vindicated. Last month, Mr Mahoney, achieved a milestone when he put Australia on the map in the Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) League of Legends Esports tournament in Iceland. Mr Mahoney’s team Pentanet GG finished sixth

overall against 11 other professional teams from around the globe, taking home $17,500 in prize money and becoming the first Oceanic team to advance to the main event of an international League of Legends tournament. The event attracted a daily attendance of more than 600 people and millions of people viewed on over 40 different platforms. In the past two-and-a-half years, Mr Mahoney, who is known for his upbeat attitude, has distinguished himself as a player of note. Esports often takes the form of organised, multiplayer video game competitions, particularly between professional players, individually or as teams. The people who compete in them are known as gamers. The former Mountain Creek student’s area of expertise is League of Legends, a team-oriented strategy game with more

“Facing the best players in the world, the one thing I noticed… was the complete confidence they have in themselves” than 115 million active monthly players worldwide, including professional players like Mr Mahoney. His mother, Mooloolaba resident Donna Hamer, says her family has a natural bent towards computers. Early on, along with her sister Michelle Hamer, she taught computer literacy classes. “I would take Jesse along with us when he was a baby and let him play on the keyboards,” she says. “By grade three, he was tutoring his schoolteacher on how to use PowerPoint.” At the Sunshine Coast University, he studied a Bachelor of Serious Games Design. On USC’s website, the course is described as designed “to solve real-world problems using the universal appeal of play” to deliver game experiences to drive positive change in education, healthcare, marketing and more. However, by 2018, competitive gaming took over as his number one priority, and Mr Mahoney decided to leave university to follow myweeklypreview.com.au

school, I wanted to be the first to be able to push us to the next level and put Australia on the map as a competitive region. “Facing the best players in the world, the one thing I noticed universally between all of them was the complete confidence they have in themselves. They all had full faith in themselves that they would make the correct decision and play every scenario properly, even if the odds looked stacked against them. I really admired this trait and towards the end of my time in Iceland, I was able to filter out any negative emotions and play with full confidence in myself no matter how good the opposition was.” He says Australian infrastructure isn’t there yet, so most players have the goal to go international. With that in mind, he says: “For the rest of the year my teammates and I will be looking to head to the world finals in China and have another standout appearance against these international players and hopefully join some of them going next year.” Mr Mahoney’s advice for anyone looking to break into the industry is to keep a balanced lifestyle and not to lose their passion for gaming and get lost in the grind. “Playing and improving is important, but eating well and getting outside for some exercise or socialising with friends is just as necessary. If you don’t look after your general wellbeing, it will stunt your growth personally and professionally.”

At a glance

his passion. He explained to his mother he would be going to Sydney where he had more chance of recognition from gaming leaders. She took a moment to reconcile herself with the challenges of this new career and recently recorded her response in a Facebook post written to her son: “I was concerned how you would support yourself, but figured the universe would sort it out. A few days later the universe answered, and you got a contract for a team and off you left.” Little did she know he would soon be extending his travels and experience with three trips to Korea and the most recent to Iceland. Mr Mahoney’s placing at the Iceland games gave him a huge shot of adrenalin. It was his first win at MSI and his first international event. “The most standout moment for me by far was definitely when we qualified for the second stage of the tournament. When I first started watching Australia compete at these international events years ago back when I was in high

GAMING AND HEALTH Advantages: 1. Playing computer games helps to improve memory and speed. 2. Focus and attention increases by playing computer games. 3. There is also an improvement in creativity and flexibility. 4. Playing computer games is challenging as well as fascinating. Disadvantages: 1. Gamer’s thumb, which was previously called ‘PlayStation thumb’ (or ‘nintendinitis’ or ‘nintendonitis’ when Nintendo was popular), occurs when the tendons that move the thumb become inflamed. 2. Obesity risk. This is due to a teen sitting in front of a screen for hours every day and not exercising. The obesity is also thought to be due to increased food intake while playing video games. 3. Eye strain. Gamers can try the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet (just over half a metre) away for 20 seconds.

Did you know? The global esports market was valued at just over 1.08 billion US dollars for 2021, which is an almost 50 per cent increase from the previous year. And the industry is forecast to grow to as much as $1.62 billion by 2024.

LUCKY TO BE ALIVE After a freak accident that ended his water skiing career and almost his life, Wade Bennett called on a deep well of determination and strength just to survive. He shares his story in a new book about resilience, determination and the power of hope. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw



ife is tough, but you are tougher. If you get kicked in the guts by something? Kick back.” These are the wise words champion water ski athlete, Olympic torchbearer, gay role model and disability advocate Wade Bennett has lived his extraordinary life by. He shouldn’t have survived the horrific ski racing accident that left him in a coma with his body shattered, but he had at least two things in his favour: his physical fitness; and his incredible mental fortitude and positive mindset. “If you get kicked by life, you stand up with your back straight and you just carry on like a lady or a gentleman,” he tells My Weekly Preview. “That’s how I’ve always done my life; I have no enemies. You gotta enjoy life. If you want to lie down for the day, that’s also enjoying life, if your body is telling you it’s something you need to do.” No one could blame him for needing a lie down. A country boy from Shepparton, Victoria, he was only four when he first began water skiing and nine when he started racing. He always knew he liked boys, but didn’t come out as gay until he was 20. By then he was entrenched in the sporting community, which did not take kindly to his sexual preference. “As a former Australian World Title team selector once said to me: ‘Wade, if you think I’m going to put a poofter on an Australian team that I select, you’ve got another thing coming.’” The hateful comment broke him at first, but he soon became filled with bold determination. He rose through the ranks quickly, snaring four national and 27 state titles, 13 state championships and more than 500 wins on the racing circuit, representing Australia numerous times. This meteoric rise occurred in the space of seven years and ended in a split second. On the Easter long weekend in 1995, 2000 people poured into the Goulburn Valley region for the Mildura 100 Water Ski Race. The final race of the day was a drag race up the Murray River. It was to be Mr Bennett’s last race before retiring and moving onto triathlons. Due to the dangerous nature of the sport, it was

to be the last ever race of its kind in Australia. To really amp up the crowd, Mr Bennett decided to race behind the fan favourite, a triple-motored 1000-horsepower boat. He was halfway down the river when the nose of the boat lifted into the air, sending a tail of water cascading over his head and a surge of waves from another boat knocked him off balance and sent him into a horrifying spin. Hitting the water at 180 kilometres an hour, he broke almost every bone in his body, tore an artery in his right leg and damaged his sciatic nerve. His bladder, bowel and intestines exploded through his stomach and torn perineum and into his wetsuit. “Apparently the whole place was just silent, other than the noise of the boats screaming out to get me. An

ambulance officer, Robyn Doyle, unzipped my wetsuit, realised what had happened and completely clamped her body around me and held me together, all the way to Mildura hospital. She saved my life.” Mr Bennett underwent a world-first 17-hour operation and spent 17 days in a coma. “I’ve been halfway to going twice and it is the most beautiful experience you will ever have,” he says. “I’m not in the slightest bit scared of death. When I was heading to passing, it just became this beautiful, warm, stress-free place where your soul is floating. You don’t care about your body; you’re just blissful, you’re just happy.” Once he regained consciousness, it was too painful to laugh or cry. “To not be able to cry was the hardest part. I was 23 and every single thing in my life was gone.” He moved to Noosa to recuperate, spending 22 years there before moving to Bellmere. Over the years, he’s had at least 80 operations and more than 200 procedures. He was honoured for his brave comeback with the opportunity to carry the Sydney 2000 Olympic torch on the Sunshine Coast. He was also invited to lead the Australian team into Stadium Australia at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Incredibly, Mr Bennett returned to water skiing in 2009, skiing with one paralysed leg. Today, he lives with chronic pain, but when he’s in a dark place, he thinks about what makes him happiest – animals, nature, his garden. “What I’ve learnt is this: every single decision you make in your life changes your life’s direction. If you want to have a happy day, you have a happy day. If you want to have a crappy day, have a crappy day. You’re in charge of your reality. My success rate for getting through bad days so far is 100 per cent. That’s my motto.”

Wade Bennett’s story of overcoming adversity is one of 10 inspiring stories featured in volume three of Reasons to Live: One More Day, Every Day by Jas Rawlinson. For copies, visit jasrawlinson.com/presale.

10 Things You Need To Know Before You Buy A Mattress You don’t buy a new bed every day. So you want to get it right. Especially when you can easily spend $1,000, $2,000, and even $5,000 or more at a department or specialty bedding store (that is, if you don’t know better). With so many different brands, different prices, and so-called discounts, it can be very confusing to know which mattress to choose. Here are 10 things you need to know before you buy a new mattress.

ONE: Same Mattress, Different Name Have you wondered why no two store sells the same mattress? Although they look similar, the name at one department store is different to another, which is different to the chain speciality bedding stores. The truth is, most mattresses in Australia are made by 3 companies. But, to make it diffi cult for you to compare mattresses (and prices) from one store to another, the manufacturer puts a different label on the mattress depending on which store is selling it. So, the only difference between the $1,000 mattress you are looking at in one store, and the $1,500 mattress in another store, may be the label.

does not affect the feel. But it will make a big difference to how long your mattress will last. Density is what costs money. So before you buy a mattress, be sure to ask about the density of the foams inside. The first layer (on top of the springs) is usually the lowest density (20-25kg/m2 is usually fi ne for this layer). But many manufacturers continue to use low density (20kg/m2 or lower) for the top comfort layers. While you won’t notice this when you first feel your new mattress, it will become obvious as the foam breaks down and you end up sleeping in a hollow (sometimes as quickly as just a few months).

FIVE: Specialty Foam Memory foam is a term used to describe foams that have a slow ‘bounce’. In other words, once de-pressed, they take a few seconds to regain their original shape. Gel foam is a term used to describe foam that is infused with a special gel substance. Both memory and gel foams feel similar to touch. But because some people find memory foams hot to sleep on (due to the fact you tend to sink into the foam more), the addition of gel particles encourages air flow and a cooler sleeping surface. Although used as a marketing gimmick by many manufacturers, we do see some benefit in using gel infused memory foam if you tend to feel hot when you sleep.

TWO: Springs Apart from straight foam and straight latex mattresses (which are not very common), all mattresses contain springs. Some have Bonnell Springs (hour glass shaped springs held between a wire hoop at the top and bottom) or Pocket Springs (individual springs that are independently wrapped in a thin layer of fabric). No matter what fancy names manufacturers give their springs, or what quantity of springs or zones their mattresses have, they are essentially the same. In fact, most springs are made by one manufacturer in China and shipped in compressed form to mattress companies all around the world including Australia. Pocket Spring mattresses tend to cost a little more than Bonnell Spring mattresses but offer a genuine advantage in terms of less partner disturbance.

THREE: Edge Support In order to maintain support right to the edges, an extra piece of wire can be connected to the top and bottom hoops of a Bonnell Spring mattresses and a strong foam box can be added to a Pocket Spring Mattress. Edge supports add genuine benefi t because they allow you to sleep or sit right on the edge of the bed without the side collapsing. Edge supports should add around $100 to the price of a Bonnell Spring mattress and around $200 to the price of a Pocket Spring mattress depending if the support goes all the way around or if it is just added to the sides.

FOUR: Foam The type of foam used in a mattress will not only affect its feel, it will signifi cantly affect the longevity of the mattress. Foams are measured in two ways. Firstly there is the feel – hard or soft. Then there is the density – high or low. The feel is what makes one mattress plush and another firm. The density is what makes one foam last longer than another. You can get a soft mattress in low or high density. Density

13.indd 1

SIX: Latex Like foam, not all latex is the same. Genuine latex is highly elastic and will last for many years. Synthetic and hybrid latex becomes brittle over time.

SEVEN: Pillow Top The term pillow top refers to the extra comfort layers usually only on one side of the mattress. This provides an extra soft sleeping surface for those who like a plush feel. Once again, the most important thing is what is inside the pillow top – namely, the density of foam. A low density foam may feel luxurious at fi rst, but as it breaks down you may feel like you are sleeping in a hollow.

Eight: Non-Flip Mattresses In some ways, this is another industry gimmick. The fact that most people don’t like to flip their mattress each month has lead manufacturers to say things like ‘non-flip technology’. What this really means is that the mattress only has comfort layers on one side. So in a way, this has enabled manufacturers to save money on manufacturing while charging more. A mattress that can be fl ipped will generally last twice as long as a single side mattress (provided you do actually flip it).

NINE: Plush Top

TEN: Are Expensive Mattresses Worth It? As you now know, the internal components of most mattresses are pretty much the same. And the most important part is the comfort layers (i.e. the density / quality of the foam). But no matter what fancy names are given to a mattress or it’s components – including terms relating to the type or number or springs – if you’re paying $5,000 for a mattress, we think you are being ripped off. Warehouse Clearance While our wholesale prices are always around 70% cheaper than other stores, there are times throughout the year where we need to clear certain mattresses at even lower prices. And right now we are overstocked on 2 models.

Some people like the look and feel of the ‘cloud-like’ comfort layers incorporated into the quilting of some mattresses. The problem is, this layer usually flattens quickly. Some salespeople say, “Your mattress will settle and mould to your body shape over time.” The truth is, the fluffy quilting is simply getting flat. We advise against plush quilting because if you like the plush feel, you will soon be disappointed as the quilting flattens. If you do like a particularly soft surface layer, we recommend inserting a thin layer of high density memory foam in the quilting. It feels amazing and will not flatten.

SIMPLY THE BEST My Weekly Preview titles picked up a swag of accolades, including best free newspaper, at the recent Queensland Country Press Awards.


y Weekly Preview has been named Queensland’s Best Free Newspaper at the highly coveted 113th Queensland Country Press Association Awards. The judging team hailed MWP as a “cut above” and an impressive publication. “More full marks, with seven new publications swelling entry numbers and providing excellent competitions. The positiveness in the frees was very pleasing,” they said. The prestigious awards attracted more than 400 entries with strong submissions from many of the 78 established and new mastheads. My Weekly Preview columnist Jane Stephens was also honoured and named as runner-up in the award for Best Column. We also won the award for Best One-off Commercial Feature with Operation Bounceback – a 32-page magazine that highlighted Sunshine Coast businesses tackling the COVID-19 challenges. Our monthly My Renovation magazine was named runner-up in Best Newspaper Regular Commercial Feature, and despite only being launched six months ago, our sister site sunshinecoastnews.com.au took the top digital trophy for regional media. The site also won the inaugural Award for Excellence in Digital Innovation, which recognises innovation in online news coverage, presentation and engagement. “While it provides a strong local news presence, it is more than an online news site. In simple terms, it is the complete package,’’ the judges said. “It features a

take gold in the state’s best free publication category is a momentous milestone. “Across all Sunshine Coast Publishing platforms, we strongly champion the importance of producing highquality journalism with products that centre on integrity, balance and fairness. These awards indicate that we are on the right track,” she says. “In the midst of a global pandemic, as businesses were forced into closure, we took the bold step to further invest in our products and meet the community’s call for more local news. We are proud to deliver free, independent quality content to the Sunshine Coast. “Our teams – across sunshinecoastnews.com.au, salt magazine, Your Time, My Renovation and My Weekly Preview magazines – may be small but we are hardworking and passionate. “Of course, we could not continue to bring you the Sunshine Coast’s best human interest, lifestyle and news stories if it wasn’t for the endless contributors such as columnists, photographers, community and sporting groups, businesses and our loyal readers and advertisers. For this, we say thank you.” Peter Hall, editor of sunshinecoastnews.com.au, says the Best Online Publication and Excellence in Digital Innovation awards are significant honours and show that free and independent journalism can not only survive, but thrive. “Our promise six months ago was to inform, connect and celebrate the Sunshine Coast and we have made a good start.”

COMMUNITY RALLIES FOR SECOND SLEEPBUS In an overwhelming show of community support, more than $100,000 has been raised to help Maroochy Neighbourhood Centre (MNC) provide a second Sleepbus for the Sunshine Coast. The community has opened its hearts and wallets to the campaign for the Maroochy pink Sleepbus after My Weekly Preview and sister site Sunshine Coast News championed the cause. MNC CEO Michael Henning says he was emotional after being presented with a generous cheque. “When a benefactor arrived on the door to present me with a cheque I just burst into tears. “Together with a couple of benefactors and the broader community we have achieved well over $118,000 for the Sleepbus. It just took two weeks for that to happen, and we didn’t even launch it. We quietly put it out there and the community embraced it and off it went. “It shows the depth of support that people have towards the homeless community here on the Sunshine Coast. It also shows the community recognises there is a problem of homelessness here. I think it is truly remarkable they have decided to embrace the idea of ‘let’s do something’.” Several individuals, community groups

Sleepbus founder Simon Rowe and businesses have donated, with a significant anonymous donation of $2000 plus a $1200 contribution from Caloundra Bridge Club. My Weekly Preview first broke the story on MNC’s effort to fundraise for a Sleepbus for men in October 2020. “There were a number of people who contacted us asking about a bus for women and children. When we talked about having the second one, we thought it would take a shorter time period – but we didn’t think it would take this short a time period.” The pink Sleepbus will now be built along with the men’s bus in Melbourne. The pink Sleepbus will be the fifth bus in Australia, with the Coast home to two. “It will be the only place in Australia that has one for men and one for women and I think that is an extraordinary achievement.”

Waves of hope SalTy Souls keeps the spirit of Sunshine Coast surfer Tyler Kennedy alive by teaching disadvantaged kids how to surf. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa Tyler Kennedy


charity born out of family tragedy is making waves for vulnerable and disadvantaged children. SalTy Souls Legacy has been putting vulnerable and disengaged Sunshine Coast children aged five to 17 through surfing programs since 2018, gifting participants with much more than

just the surf skills they take home. The charity is in memory of local surfer Tyler Kennedy, who tragically died while on a surf trip in Bali in 2017. Mr Kennedy’s dream to teach children to surf is living on through SalTy Souls Legacy. Struggling to channel the family grief, Mr Kennedy’s older sister Tamara Smith eventually founded the charity to keep the

dream of her 31-year-old brother alive. “SalTy Souls Legacy came out of our grief and our pain and not having anywhere for it to go,” she says. “Tyler had drawn a sketch on one of his surf trips and he had ‘salty souls’ written in that sketch and he also had it tattooed on his ankle.” The phrase was created to reflect the

love Mr Kennedy and his friends had for the ocean, during one of their many trips. Now, the capital ‘T’ is in honour of the Moffat Beach local. “Tyler was the saltiest of souls,” Ms Smith says. “We began trademarking the sketch and people were suggesting we start a surf shop, but nothing sat well with us. “Our mates started wanting a T-shirt for a festival with the sketch and even when we were making a few dollars from the tees, we weren’t comfortable having any of the funds kept for ourselves, so we thought ‘what can we do here?’. “Tyler was always in the water and he wanted to travel the coastline of Australia and teach kids how to surf. He learnt to surf on a secondhand board, so our initial goal was to get surfboards from all over and give to vulnerable kids who wanted to have a go at surfing but couldn’t afford it.” Ms Smith says from the sale of the initial T-shirts, SalTy Souls has been able to fund the first eight children through a program. The fully funded surf therapy

programs run for six weeks and each child is gifted a repurposed surfboard and beach starter kit so they can continue their new-found love of surfing post-program. “Children are referred to us from schools, children services, foster groups, health services and women’s and children’s shelters,” Ms Smith says. “The first program ran in 2018 and the feedback we are getting from the youth organisations and from the case workers is just the positive impact long term.” She says the programs give a real sense of “community and belonging” to the

children and the charity extends invites to siblings to make it a real family affair. “We like to include siblings so kids have someone they can do the program with.”

In a stark and ongoing reminder that domestic and family violence is a scourge in our community, Sunshine Coast Council has installed four bright red benches. The Red Bench project is the brainchild of not-forprofit charity the Red Rose Foundation, which started the campaign in the hope the benches will raise public awareness and remind people of the unacceptable presence of domestic and family violence in communities. Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson says the benches – installed at Nambour, Alexandra Headland, Caloundra and Maleny – display a simple message on a plaque: ‘Change the ending: let’s stop domestic violence’. “There is no room for domestic and family violence in our society. It has to stop and every single one of us can take responsibility for our own actions and lead by example,” Cr Jamieson says. Domestic and family violence is a key focus area in the Sunshine Coast Community Strategy 2019-2041. If you or someone you know is experiencing violence, call 1800 RESPECT on 1800 737 732. In an emergency, call the police on 000. Want more news daily? Visit our sister site, sunshinecoastnews.com.au for free, up-to-date news.

Sunshine Coast thanks TurtleCare volunteers From the dedication of volunteers to behind-the-scenes projects to help our environment, Sunshine Coast TurtleCare celebrates some of the achievements that happened away from the beach in 2021.


unshine Coast Council conservation officer Kate Hofmeister expressed her sincere thanks on behalf of Council and the community to the dedication of the volunteers. While there is one more nest still to emerge before the final tally of the season can be calculated, they have contributed more than 11,000 hours to turtle conservation, ensuring just under 4000 hatchlings reached the ocean. They are able to do this work because they have spent many hours, year after year, training to become accredited turtle conservation volunteers. Another project Council is proud of this season is a partnership with Energex and the community to reduce artificial light at night in

the Point Cartwright car park. Energex has lowered the street lights and built custom shields around the lights to reduce the amount of light pollution reaching the nesting beach. The lights in the amenities block have also been modified by Council to reduce the impact to turtle nesting, while meeting the needs of community use in the evenings. This has been achieved through custom shielding and using motion activation to ensure the light is available for use when it is needed. Ms Hofmeister says Council is also proud to offer sustainable volunteer shirts. TurtleCare’s new Econyl shirts are made from 100 per cent marine and landfill waste

products – more specifically abandoned ‘ghost’ fishing nets. Over the last 12 months, the team has worked with a local Sunshine Coast company, Ocean Rescue, to source the shirts, test the prototypes in the field and create a design that replaces the existing shirt at a competitive price. Even better – when volunteers retire from TurtleCare, the shirts can be sent back to be recycled into an entirely new garment, closing the loop and never going to waste.

NEW PLANNING SCHEME COMMUNITY REFERENCE GROUP Nominations are now open for Sunshine Coast Council’s Community Reference Group (CRG) to support the development of the new Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme. The group will play an important role in shaping community engagement opportunities as Council prepares its new planning scheme. CRG members will be selected based on their ability to represent a range of interest areas and demographics, ensuring the group is diverse, representative and inclusive of communities across the Sunshine Coast. Visit Council’s website to register your interest by 18 June.

FROM THE MAYOR Through our work with our community on the Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy, Our Resilient Coast. Our Future, our Sunshine Coast is once again planning for and taking real action to respond to the challenges of a changing climate. Our coastal zone is dynamic and always changing. Residents will be familiar with beach erosion, shifting sand and periodic inundation of low-lying areas from high tides and storm events. These natural processes are referred to as coastal hazards when they impact on how we use and enjoy the coastal area. The scope and intensity of these impacts varies but is expanding as we confront the implications of climate change. Our Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy helps all of us to better understand emerging coastal hazard risks and how to proactively manage their impacts on our communities, our environment and the liveability of our region. The Strategy has been informed by the best available science and is a collaborative effort with members of our community, who have shared their experiences and knowledge and helped us understand what is important to them. You can find out more and view the strategy on Council’s website. Mark Jamieson Mayor Sunshine Coast Council

June 19 REGENERATIVE FARMING AND CELL GRAZING – WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY FESTIVAL The Changing Habits farm has been using cell grazing with cattle and chickens for the past five years. This increases soil ecology, sequesters carbon from the atmosphere, holds more water and soil and thus contributes to the abundance of plant and animal life. The Changing Habits farmers will teach you the principles and what animals can be used in order to be part of the solution to the climate issues faced today. Regenerative farming is growing in Australia and around the world. Learn how to be part of this movement. When: Saturday, June 19, 9am–12pm. Where: 314 Reesville Road, Reesville. Tickets: $10. Visit scec.org.au/changing_ habits_farm.

MY OPINION recently announced it would spend $100 million on 65 new hospital beds and associated staff, which is great if it is the start of a spendathon, but embarrassing if that is the extent of its fix. The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists recently criticised the Palaszczuk government for having the lowest per capita expenditure on mental health in Australia. Palliative care is similarly roundly criticised for being underfunded and people are dying in pain as a result – inexcusable. Patients brought to our hospitals by ambulance are being ramped by the half-dozen, as seen this week. That is ridiculous, given we have the nation’s newest medical mammoth. With hospitals at Caloundra, Nambour, Noosa and Maleny, the newish kid in town – Sunshine Coast University Hospital – is upheld as a wondrous example of what a hospital can be. So while the systemic state of play is fraying fast, we on the Sunshine Coast should count our lucky stars at a time when such shiners are difficult to see. It is also imperative we separate the system from the people who work in it. My experience at SCUH this week could not have been better. I was one of more than 500 people that day receiving a COVID-19 vaccination and it went like clockwork. The lines were orderly and I was treated with respect. My details were checked – and double checked – and I was reassured. The staff were wonderful. I just feel a little guilty about the lollypop I was given to ease my pain. I would happily give up my sweet treat if that meant more money for much-needed beds and staff.

UNDERFUNDED HEALTH SYSTEM NEEDS A SHOT IN THE ARM Queensland’s hospital system is in a world of pain, with misery seemingly in every underfunded nook and crowded cranny. For a generation, the number crunchers have seen it coming, watching war babies and Baby Boomers survive longer than previous generations. Throw in that Queensland’s bountiful beauty has attracted more people to live here and voila! We have what Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said is a hospital system facing ‘unprecedented demand’. If only they had heeded the warnings and bolstered the barricades. If only one of the governments of the past couple of decades had been brave enough to build for the predicted, not just politically strategic, need. The Australian Medical Association Queensland this month said $3 billion (for 1500 new hospital beds and an army of new staff) was needed to turn the tide on ramping, overcrowding, unacceptable waiting lists and so on. The government

Believe it or not, but you cannot make this up. The last few months in my local area predominantly young people have been smashing bottles in the park at night where children play during the day. I have now on more than a few occasions while walking my dog got down on my hands and knees to pick up the broken glass. Sometimes with council workers but most of the time without. Given how many young children play in the area, I thought it would be a good thing to do as it would certainly ruin a child’s birthday. Imagine my surprise when the council dog patrol fined me $260 for walking on the grass while my dog was on lead. When I explained I have recently started doing this to pick up rubbish and broken glass, the response was: “Pick up rubbish on your own time when not walking your dog.” The irony is you have to walk your dog on the grass to get the poo bags they put out for you, but don’t dare walk your dog and pick up rubbish or broken glass to help the community. No, I am not making this up. Your latest episode of yes minister from our local council.

There has been much comment about Sunshine Coast public transport decisions – all of which seem to involve a lot of money and major upheaval – for many years, as well as being visually and physically obstructive. It seems to me that we are ignoring the more simple and straightforward improvements. One current problem is the infrequency of buses. If you miss one, you often have an hour to wait for the next – this is just not viable. To run a good public bus service, you should have to wait about 10 minutes or maybe 15 minutes at most during the day. The buses should also run frequently on weekends and during the evenings and on some routes, eg. to SCUH, at night. A free bus service could be provided to take tourists and locals to the beaches. By using smaller electric buses that recharge at turn-round time at the stations, the operating costs could be kept down and be much cleaner and healthier. More local jobs for drivers would be an added bonus. In addition, I believe better footpaths would encourage people to walk to their local shops rather than drive and we would all be healthier.

Ashley Robinson wanted to be either a police officer or a teacher as a teenager, but says he wouldn’t have been much good at either.

Sami Muirhead is not ashamed to admit there are certain words in our vernacular that she struggles to pronounce.

am getting towards the end of my work life and I sometimes ponder what jobs I would have liked if I had my time over. When I was a teenager, I wanted to be two things: a policeman or teacher, in that order. My dad always said I would have been a really bad copper as I would book anyone doing the wrong thing, no warnings just a straight out fine or jail. I sort of agreed with him, but still applied for the force in 1976. I failed the last hurdle; blood pressure was too high so I was told to try again. The reason I got another go was I was in the top 10 per cent of the written test and secondly, when the doc took my blood pressure he told me the cuff was an old one, which would give me a high reading. Of course, the combination of telling me that and the old equipment did the trick – boom, high blood pressure. Now I am about to show you once again how dumb I am. My mum’s great friend Sir Francis Nicklin (the former premier from 1957–1968) offered to take me down to the Police Academy and get someone to show me around and learn more about the opportunities on offer. I knocked him back

and reapplied. What an idiot. I failed again and was told not to apply again. I then applied for the NT Police and got knocked back for my busted nose. They told me to get it fixed and come back. But by that time I had had enough and just kept stumbling through life. As for teaching, well I had a bright idea in the ’80s to do a mature age teaching degree until old mate pointed out a couple of things. Interest rates had gone mad and our house payment had gone from $385 per month to $1000. The conversation went like this: “Well Einstein, if you are going to college how the hell are we going to make the payments, and secondly, you aren’t that bright.” So it was pouring beers for me forever. Looking back, dad and her were dead right. If I had my time over, there are a couple of jobs I would be suited for – garbo and lighthouse keeper as I love being alone. Well, maybe with old mate and a dog. Jobs I wouldn’t like now would be teacher and police. Both get a lack of support from authorities, which only just beats the very worst job I could possibly do – driving instructor.

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


o you say ‘Yoo-No’ or ‘Oo-No’? I refer to the card game kids and adults play around the world. Our family has it right. We say ‘Oo-No’. Because ‘Uno’ is a Spanish and Italian word meaning ‘one’ and you say ‘Uno’ when you have one card left. It makes perfect sense and yet so many of my friends are arguing with me that Aussies say ‘Yoo-No’, because we live in Australia. It is the same as ‘You beaut’ or ‘You bet!’. To my misguided friends I say this: you know you are wrong saying, ‘Yoo-No’ because it is ‘Oo-No’ so you can go away. There are many words I am always unsure how to pronounce. Moët. Is it ‘Moat’? ‘Moe-eh’or ‘Moe-eeee’? I just avoid saying this at all, but please be reassured I do not avoid drinking the stuff. “Pass me a glass of the bubbles, love”, is what you will hear me call the good plonk. What about our iconic thongs, Havaianas? Do you say ‘Hav-i-anas’ or ‘Hav-anas’? Again, to be safe, I would say thongs. Another tricky word I avoid like the plague is celtic. Is it ‘sell-tic’ or ‘cell-tic’? Designer brands are fraught with danger, people. Hermes. I do not know where to

begin. Does it rhyme with ‘herpes’? Is it ‘Herrmmmmmm’ as if you are about to spit, or is it plain ‘hers’? I like to tell my husband it is pronounced ‘H is for happy wife’. Gifs. Another nightmare word. Is it ‘jiff’ as in, I will be back in one or is it ‘giff’ as in Aussie lingo for I got one for my birthday? Who the heck knows unless you are very well educated and well read. What about ‘Ibitha’ in Spain and ‘St Tropez’? I once asked a chemist assistant if she had any of the ‘Saint Trop-ez’ sunscreen in stock. I turned bright red when she made a point of telling me as she looked me up and down it is the ‘San Trow-pay’ sunscreen. Food groups are another trap for tricky words. You know that delicious soup from Vietnamese restaurants that is spelt ‘pho’? Well, I would like to know how the pho you say that word. I usually point to the menu and ask for number 23 on the list. And the last tongue-twisting and mind-blowing word I will leave you with is ‘acai’ bowl. If you are rolling your eyes you are probably under 30. You are not my spirit animal. Apparently it is pronounced ‘ass-sigh”. I will leave it there.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)




This week, there’s the disruptive Saturn/Uranus square, where the status quo is questioned and rigid patterns are broken down. Try to get the balance right between fulfilling responsibilities to other people and personal freedom.

Mercury (your patron planet) is currently reversing through your career zone, so it’s not a good time to initiate a professional project, apply for a promotion or look for a new job. Instead, wait until after Mercury goes direct on June 22.

When it comes to sport, children, romance, friendship, creativity, hobbies and beliefs, be proactive and shake things up. If you sit on the fence and let things slide, then change will come in a more radical form that’s harder to manage.

Money matters look confusing as Mercury reverses through your joint finances zone. And is a family matter or a relationship issue weighing you down? Uranus demands that you let go of some old habits, routines and beliefs that are no longer serving you.





Be extra careful how you give and receive information (especially in close relationships), as Mercury is still reversing through your partnership zone. If you have doubts or concerns, then don’t hesitate to double-check.

Expect some frustrations and delays as retrograde Mercury confuses communication. Try not to over-react. There will always be projects to complete and mountains to climb. But perhaps a friend or a colleague needs your attention right here and right now?

With Mercury still retrograde (and Saturn squaring Uranus), prepare for a few frustrating problems to head your way. Making a snap decision seems like a good idea, but it could backfire. Consider situations carefully before you respond.

Prepare for some drama as Saturn, Uranus and retrograde Mercury stir up issues with a relative or friend. Use your diplomatic talents to find practical solutions to current problems. The stars encourage ambitious plans.

Are you tired of being a paddockbound bull? This week, the planets rev up your usually tentative Taurean nature and you’ll feel more restless than usual. It’s time to break free from boring boundaries (especially at work) and start exploring.




There could be misunderstandings involving friends, finances or social media, as Mercury is retrograde until June 22. Saturn squares Uranus on Monday and Tuesday, which could also affect your bank balance or your peer group.

he much-anticipated inaugural Sunshine Coast Chamber Music Festival is set to feature nine memorable live performances across the region’s most breathtaking spaces and venues from June 18 to 20. The program showcases dynamic Australian artists and promises to excite, soothe, connect, challenge and inspire music lovers of every age. Artistic director Louise King says her vision for this festival is to curate events that resonate with the Sunshine Coast community and lifestyle and to build new

audiences and appreciation for the diversity of the festival musicians. “The festival’s theme is Distance and Intimacy, Hope and Regeneration to reflect the timeless journey of chamber music to today’s unforeseen challenges for artists,” Ms King says. “For many, this festival is the first opportunity in 12 months to perform live, so it promises to be a poignant occasion for everyone.” A major aim of the festival is to support the Australian arts community and every ticket sold will count towards

reigniting the arts and supporting talented artists from throughout and beyond the Sunshine Coast. Ms King has chosen both traditional and unexpected settings across the region for each unique concert to celebrate the Coast’s natural, ancient landscapes through artistic collaboration, cultural exchange and evocative music. The festival’s opening concert, Open Air: Song of the Black Swan will weave together ancient Dreamtime stories and Aboriginal legend through ritual, music, and song. “We have wide-ranging experiences to share from Classics for Children: Sonic Safari in Buderim to our Fringe: Beats + Loops in Maroochydore,” Ms King says. “Our hinterland communities will host intimate concerts so music lovers can discover our pioneer heritage and hospitality at Eudlo and Palmwoods.” Special outreach performances Music and Wellness: Musical Meditations will be hosted at Sunshine Coast University Hospital and an aged care centre in partnership with regional charity Wishlist. Another exciting facet will be the launch of a new annual Rising Stars: Mentorship Program that offers young, emerging musicians mentoring in chamber music practice by esteemed, established professional artists and ensembles. “This inaugural mentorship program will launch in partnership with Camerata, Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra and Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra,” Ms King says. “These young musicians will play in Open Air: Heartland alongside Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University [QCGU] Riverside Guitar Ensemble and the Acetaria Woodwind Ensemble, who are QCGU 2020 Ensemble prize winners, as our closing festival concert. “It will be a fitting finale to a brilliant festival and end on a note of looking to our future together.”

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16 Nature Spirit and Homegrown In this special pre-festival concert, enjoy the rare opportunity of hearing stunning music presented in the intimacy of Eudlo Hall. Pianist Alex Raineri presents Nature Spirit, a varied and colourful program about nature and birdsong inspired by the beauty of the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Then in a contrasting second half, Homegrown is striking new music written for the acclaimed Muses Trio. 2021 marks the trio’s ninth concert season together and third album release by ABC Classics for its Women of Note series. This program celebrates incredible female composers from across Australia. Time: 7.30pm to 9.30pm Venue: Eudlo Hall, 19 Rosebed Street, Eudlo Ticket prices: Early bird adult $35, adult $40. Supper refreshments and cash bar available.

THURSDAY, JUNE 17 Beats + Loops A festival fringe event, Beats + Loops highlights Australia’s experimental new music scene exploring the fun space between a sit-down concert and a club gig. Expect exciting, adventurous and thought-provoking, punchy live-music sets presented by festival artists who like to go rogue in the urban vibe of the Sunshine Coast’s favourite live music venue, Solbar. Time: 7.30pm to 9.30pm Venue: Solbar, 10/12-20 Ocean Street, Maroochydore Ticket prices: Adult $40. Cabaret seating. Refreshments/food on sale.


7/06/2021 3:13:49 PM

CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL Storytelling is key to sharing the origins of the Sunshine Coast and the concert will feature a narrator, young contemporary dancer Soraya Fewquandie-Scott, and renowned singer/songwriter and folk musician Lydia Fairhall. “First Nations artist Eric Avery is celebrated for his work as a violinist, classically trained dancer and for continuing the ancient tradition of singing his tribe’s custodial songs,” Ms King says.

“Several First Nations artists will share the stage”

unshine Coast Chamber Music Festival artistic director Louise King is breathing life into a long-held dream of showcasing First Nations artists at one of the most eclectic performances in the program of the three-day festival with Song of the Black Swan. “This concert will be a night of many firsts,” Ms King says. “It will truly be a major theatrical production, weaving together talented

musicians, actors, singers and technicians to share a magical experience with the audience under the skies beside the iconic Maroochy River mouth at Cotton Tree on dusk. “Several First Nations artists will share the stage to honour the custodians of our beautiful region and to tell the story of Maroochy.” It is the first time that acclaimed Indigenous musician Chris Williams will play didgeridoo on the Sunshine Coast.

“We are all extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to witness his talent live in this setting.” The setting was chosen to provide a meaningful backdrop for the songs, music and artists and this concert will echo across the water and surrounding suburbs, bringing people together beyond the parkland. “It will be an ideal location for this concert’s theme, and we will begin strictly at 5pm on dusk as part of the story on Friday evening and play throughout the long winter sunset timing, as part of the story.”

A THANK YOU GIFT TO CARERS IN OUR COMMUNITY A very special event that is not ticketed and will be hosted privately in the program is The Gift – a performance in partnership with Wishlist at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital. It was created by Louise King as a poignant thank you to the health workers on the frontline at this challenging time for our, and every community.

“Music is a way to transport people and lift spirits and four of the festival’s artists will play as a way of personally giving back, sharing their talent within the hospital’s walls and public spaces, to resonate and lift people in care. “This very special concert will be shared via technology to health and aged-care centres across our region.”

or one special hour on June 19, the historic Palmwoods Memorial Hall will host an uplifting afternoon concert

titled Southern Cross Dreaming with celebrated classical guitarist Karin Schaupp in an intimate solo recital supported by the rising young stars of

the Acetaria Woodwind Quintet. Ms Schaupp is a headline artist of the inaugural Sunshine Coast Chamber Music Festival. It is the first time in 20 years she has returned to play on the Sunshine Coast and this concert is a traditional showcase of the beauty of chamber music. An international soloist and senior lecturer in classical guitar at Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, Ms Schaupp will perform solo guitar music by baroque master Domenico Scarlatti and Cuban composer Leo Brouwer. The famous piece Recuerdos de la Alhambra by Spanish romantic composer Francisco Taerraga will feature at the heart of her program and her rendition of Australian composer Richard Charlton’s evocative Suspended in a Sunbeam is ideal for revelling in the natural light and acoustics of the heritage hall. Acetaria Woodwind Quintet is one of Queensland’s up-and-coming ensembles, currently studying at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University under the mentorship of Ms Schaupp. The group will perform works by renowned composers Samuel Barber and Carl Nielsen.

BRINGING TOGETHER COAST STUDENTS AND TEACHERS An exciting new chamber music mentoring program, Rising Stars, has welcomed young string players from the Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra to learn from renowned local musicians as part of the Sunshine Coast Chamber Music Festival. The Rising Stars mentorship program enables eight young people to work with Louise King and musicians from the Brisbane-based chamber orchestra Camerata. Camerata artistic director Brendan Joyce will also guide the aspiring musicians. “In a way, Camerata was born out of the ideals of learning and having fun through music-making, so working with

this exciting new chamber music festival and local teachers to nurture young musicians is both an opportunity and a privilege for us,” Mr Joyce says. Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra director Maria Salmon is pleased to partner with the program. “Musicians considering a future career can learn from professional musicians and gain valuable performance opportunities during the festival.” Students have been part of a 12-week program and will perform alongside professional musicians in the festival’s closing performance, Heartland, in Buderim on June 20.

SATURDAY, JUNE 19 Green Bushes Enjoy a toe-tapping, family-friendly celebration of folk-infused music from Ireland, England, Australia, Denmark and Scandinavia. This concert speaks strongly of artistic director Louise King’s ancestral roots and her enduring love of English folk songs originating from her childhood home county of Lincolnshire. The program traces how folk music travels continents in waves of human migration and pioneering spirit. The program also features First Nations composer Christopher Sainsbury’s work Grainger in Bourke St in a musical tribute to his enduring legacy to contemporary Australian music.

A RECIPE FOR FRIENDSHIP Sconetime is coming to Buderim and Nambour, offering connection over a cuppa and a tasty scone. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

Errol Richardson, Aimee Russell, Martin Duncan, Donna Niazov and Brenda Bailey are preparing for the launch of Sconetime Buderim this June


uderim and Nambour residents will soon have the chance to enjoy a fresh scone, a cup of tea and friendship with two new Sconetime events to launch this month. Buderim War Memorial Hall will host the town’s first Sconetime on June 17 and Sconetime Nambour is set to launch at Nambour Tram Terminus on June 18.

Sunshine Coast Foodie Martin Duncan began Sconetime in Cooroy in 2018 to reduce the feeling of social isolation for the elderly in the community. “I first had the idea of Sconetime after watching a video about a 96-year young woman who combatted loneliness and disconnect by regularly attending a morning tea,” Mr Duncan says.

“Sconetime creates meaningful community connections where seniors in our community come together with family and business owners over fresh hot scones loaded with homemade jam and loads of freshly whipped cream.” After successful events in Cooroy, Caloundra and the Glass House Mountains, Mr Duncan says the Buderim and Nambour communities have jumped on board to help make these new events a reality. “Sconetime Buderim is with Buderim Ginger, The Ginger Factory, 4556 Chamber of Commerce, Aimee Provence, Montville Coffee and Sunshine Coast Foodie. “Sconetime Nambour is with Reimagine Nambour, Nambour Chamber of Commerce, Fig in Sun Cafe, Montville Coffee and Sunshine Coast Foodie.” Mr Duncan is also hoping other communities around Australia will adopt Sconetime and has set up a Go Fund Me page to help him meet and engage with interested towns. “I would love to help others around Australia with Sconetime reconnecting their community,” he says. Funds raised will allow Mr Duncan to travel beyond the Sunshine Coast region and help purchase table linen, crockery, scone ingredients, tea, coffee and venue hire for events. For tickets to Buderim Sconetime go to trybooking.com/BRKWJ. For tickets to Nambour Sconetime go to trybooking.com/BRFQK. To support Sconetime visit gofundme.com and search ‘Sconetime’.

HISTORY BUFFS GET FUNDING Caloundra Family History Research group will benefit from new computer equipment to assist members with their own family history searches. Club president Valerie Thornton and vice-president Roz Kuss met with the Member for Caloundra Jason Hunt recently where he presented $8200 on behalf of the state government’s Gambling Community Benefit Fund. “The cheque was for a successful grant application to obtain five new laptops and a monitor for the scanners,” Mrs Thornton says. “It was a productive meeting with Mr Hunt, who helped the group understand the COVID restrictions and how it can reopen for in-person meetings after not being able to do so since March 2020.” The meetings will now take place in a hybrid format, allowing members to attend in person or via Zoom.

Cr Ted Hungerford Division seven (Rosemount, Kiels Mountain, Diddillibah, Kuluin, North Buderim, Headland Park, Buderim, Forest Glen, Mons and Tanawha) Sunshine Coast Council’s most recent Major Grants have awarded more than $930,000 among 112 volunteer groups to support projects that will provide community benefit well into the future. I’m really pleased to see that 14 community groups in division seven were successful in their grant applications. Congratulations to all grant recipients, including the Buderim Garden Club who received $21,668 for installation of an arbour in Buderim Village Park to celebrate the club’s 75th anniversary, and the Maroochy Men’s Shed, who received $9951 to install solar power at its new

facility to improve their ongoing sustainability. Council’s Community Grants Program provides support to not-for-profit community groups for one-off projects, events and activities that benefit the Sunshine Coast community. Major Grants support eligible local community groups with funding up to $15,000 for projects (and up to $30,000 for infrastructure projects) in one of seven categories, all of which are listed on the council’s website at sunshinecoast.qld. gov.au/grants. The next round of Major Grants will open on July 19 and close August 30, 2021.


Support for businesses Did you know as a business you can now trade, exchange or sell your unwanted waste with the ASPIRE program, reducing waste disposal costs and the amount of waste sent to landfill. ASPIRE is a free online business-tobusiness tool for businesses with up to 100 staff who need to list unwanted waste streams and be connected to businesses who can use this input as a reuse. The council has invested in a license for our local business community to have access to this great circular economy, business-to-business platform. For more information visit the council’s website.

Nominations are now open for Sunshine Coast Council’s Community Reference Group (CRG), to support the development of the new Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme. The group will play an important role in shaping community engagement opportunities as the council prepares its new planning scheme, which is expected to be completed in 2024. A planning scheme is a regulatory document used to guide and manage future growth and development in our local government area. Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson says establishing a CRG is an important step to informing the preparation of a new planning scheme.

“The main purpose of the CRG will be to provide input and guidance to council about the best ways to engage with the community during preparation of the new planning scheme,” he says. He says it is important to get input from a diverse range of community voices and ensure that everyone has an opportunity to be heard during this important task. The CRG will consist of an independent chair and up to 10 community members. “Forming a CRG is a tried and tested approach – as we saw with the Biosphere nomination and the development of the Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy – and council anticipates significant outcomes can be realised through this initiative.” Visit the council’s New Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme Project webpage at sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/ newplanningscheme for details and to download an expression of interest pack. Expressions of interest are due by 4.30pm on Friday, June 18. There are several ways to submit your expression of interest. Email newplanningscheme@sunshinecoast. qld.gov.au or go to reception at either the Caloundra, Maroochydore or Nambour offices.

CHOMPA AND TERRANCE RIDE THE WAVE HOME Two sea turtle hatchlings have been released back into the ocean this week after successful rehabilitation stints. With the help of Brisbane Marine Pilots, Australia Zoo wildlife warrior Chandler Powell and representatives from SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast accompanied Chompa and Terrance out to a feeder current leading into the East Australian Current. Zoo Wildlife Hospital supervisor doctor Ludovica Valenza says the loggerhead turtles are a vulnerable species. “The greatest threat to loggerhead turtles is the loss of nesting habitat due to coastal development and human disturbances. “Other threats also include entrapment

in fishing line and the ingestion of plastics,” Dr Ludovica says. Chompa was found stranded at Point Cartwright while Terrance was seen struggling to swim in the waves at Bokarina following a storm. Thankfully, there were no injuries present on either hatchling when they arrived at the hospital. Both hatchlings were sent to SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast at the beginning of April to gain weight and strength. “Chompa and Terrance were looking absolutely healthy and were ready to take over life in their natural habitat. I am so proud of our joint efforts in rehabilitating both hatchlings and preparing them for life in the wild,” Mr Powell says.

The Sunshine Coast’s largest familyowned and operated lawn and garden maintenance and supply business has opened its third local store. Sunshine Coast Mowers now has a

store on the corner of Production and Textile avenues at Warana. Initially at Mooloolaba, SCM was purchased by David Cook in 2002 and in 2012 his sons Hayden and Gerard bought the business, continuing his legacy by opening a store in Caloundra in late 2014, following David’s passing earlier that year. “We now employ 25 staff across all stores and while our maintenance and repair teams will be based at Kawana and Caloundra, we’ll still have a great variety of stock to sell across all three stores,’’ Hayden says.

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

BUSINESS COMMUNITY BACKS BLI BLI SCHOOL The $1.5 million Bli Bli State School hall extension is one step closer to completion thanks to the support of the school’s P&C and the Sunshine Coast business community. School principal Gerard Quinn says the hall will accommodate more than 1000 people and host a range of indoor and outdoor events. “We were fortunate to receive a government grant for $515,000,” Mr Quinn says. “That has been matched by the school’s hard-working P&C along

with local business identities including Roz and Michael White from White’s Supa IGA and Bli Bli Village, Ed and Natasha Hackenberg from Ray White Bli Bli, as well as the developers of Parklakes 1 and 2, Peter Shadforth and Robert Flipp. The Bli Bli Community Association, chaired by Chris Baker, have also been with us all the way.” The hall will host the school’s musical Shine Your Own Way where more than 150 students will perform on September 9 and 10.

Darryl Watt, Ord Minnett Buderim.

TRANSURBAN GROUP Transurban Group (TCL) recently delivered a broadly positive March-quarter traffic update that showed a continued improvement in traffic volumes. Average daily traffic (ADT) at the group level increased one per cent on the same period last year, or fell 5.3 per cent once new road openings were excluded. This was a strong improvement on the 12 per cent decline in the December quarter. Relative to 2019 – which eliminates the COVID-19 drag in the March 2020 period – ADT fell 3.8 per cent, or declined 9.9 per cent excluding new road openings. Sydney and Brisbane traffic recovered to above pre-pandemic levels as restrictions were lifted. Traffic in Melbourne remained affected but improved through the period, with March-quarter traffic falling 15 per cent, an improvement from the traffic decline of 36 per cent in the December quarter. North American traffic remains affected by COVID-19 restrictions, falling 27 per cent versus a 31 per cent decline in the December quarter. The vaccine rollout in the US is progressing well, however, so traffic looks set to improve in the coming months. We assume the traffic recovery

trajectory will be maintained, and that traffic will be down seven per cent in the second half relative to the June 2019 half (down 10 per cent in the first quarter). We assume traffic will fall one per cent in fiscal 2022 relative to 2019 and recover to above pre-pandemic levels in fiscal 2023. Transurban has a material pipeline of opportunities in core markets over the next decade. Barring Sydney’s WestConnex, however, most of the significant spending is longer-dated, such as the Maryland Express Lanes project (fiscal 2023), Sydney’s Western Harbour Tunnel (fiscal 2025 or later) and the Sydney Beaches Link (fiscal 2025 or later). This timeline is crucial as it removes some near-term funding pressure. The sale of 49 per cent of WestConnex is the large near-term project. We have suggested Transurban may be better placed as the underbidder, or to potentially reduce its stake in the joint venture, as an acquisition would likely require substantial equity (we estimate circa $3.3 billion) and be two to 2.5 per cent dilutive to free cash flow. Transurban has the largest portfolio of toll roads in Australia, and its traffic growth is relatively predictable and has historically outpaced GDP growth. The company’s recent results and project pipeline support our strong medium-term outlook. We expect recovering traffic growth, and revenue accretion from road widenings and expansions to drive strong free cash flow and distribution growth. There is also strong global demand for long-duration stable cash flow assets such as toll roads, as evidenced by the recent sale of a stake in Transurban’s US assets.

BUSINESS PHONES: GET IT RIGHT Choosing the right phones for your company is more important than ever, according to Protech Repairs development manager Ben Russoniello. “The right phone will be readily repairable, cost effective and above all else reliable for a longer period,” he says. “The wrong choice in phones and even tablets can mean high cost of repairs… and loss of productivity.” So, what makes a good fleet phone? Here are Mr Russoniello’s top tips. 1. Reliability – Buying flagship phones (top of the line) in the beginning will ensure reliability; these phones rarely have issues and are known to last up to three to five years. 2. Repairability and cost of repairs – Can your phone be repaired with quality replacement parts and can it be done in a cost-effective way? 3. Durability – Buy quality as it will last longer. 4. Battery – High-end phone batteries should last around two years. Choose a phone that has easy access to the battery for replacement. 5. Ease of protection – Find a phone that has easily accessible cases and screen protection.

Have you considered how your business is structured?

When can a child decide where they want to live?

Business boost bonanza

Do you know where your original will is?

The following are some opportunities to help grow your business.

Often we see business owners who haven’t stopped to consider whether their current business and personal structure still best suits their circumstances. While directing focus to business operations, it’s easy to be complacent about the important details that help minimise tax and protect assets. With rollover and relief measures in place at the moment, now is a good time to review the way you operate. Why update your structure? • If your business has grown, consider looking at a structure which provides for more flexibility when dealing with tax payable on profits. A company can help cap your effective tax rate. A discretionary trust could help you share income between family members. • Does your business deal directly with the public or do you operate in a dangerous environment? Mitigating business risk by separating personal assets and trading activities is paramount. Using a company or inserting a corporate trustee can help reduce your potential personal liability and keep your assets safe. An enormous amount of effort goes into running your own business – it is important to make sure your current structure suits you now and into the future.

The legal answer to this question is that children can ‘decide’ where they live when they become adults – at 18 years of age. This is the age at which parents are no longer held legally responsible for the needs of their children. However, what is more complex is the fact that children reach stages of their development when they start to become more independent and rely less heavily upon the involvement of their parents. Examples include getting a first job and getting a licence and car. There are other times when children hold strong views about their experiences within another household, and how that could have an impact upon them. In short, a court won’t simply follow a child’s wishes, but they must consider their views, and the extent to which their maturity and understanding should add or detract from the weight to be placed on those views, along with myriad other considerations when determining what is in the child’s best interest. If you or someone you know is separated and has children with strong views, we recommend you seek legal advice from a family law accredited specialist who can advise on how those views might be considered.

1. Business Growth Fund – Supports SME’s with up to 75 per cent of project costs to purchase specialised equipment up to $50,000 to capitalise on high growth opportunities. Must be GST registered, have three years trading history, greater than $500,000 turnover and less than 50 staff. There is a three-step application process with the first step requiring businesses to register for a Queensland Mentoring for Growth Session. Registrations for these sessions closed June 2, so if you haven’t already registered, you may be too late.

3. Business Boost Grant – opens July 2021 A $15,000 grant aimed at helping small businesses improve efficiency and productivity through training, coaching and software.

Recently, our firm assisted in a matter where the original will of our client’s late father could not be located. Our client could only locate a copy of the signed will. The court ended up admitting the copy of the will to probate and the administration of the estate was able to progress, however it required a significant amount of research, evidence and a court order. The court must be satisfied that: a) there was actually a will, adopting or purporting to embody the deceased’s testamentary intentions; b) the document revoked all previous wills; c) the presumption that a will has been destroyed by the testator when not produced must be overcome (i.e. ‘did the deceased destroy the original on purpose with the intention that it no longer be his/her last will?’); d) there is evidence of the terms of the will; and e) there is either evidence of due execution or that the deceased person intended the document to constitute his/ her will. To avoid extra hassle and expense it is best to keep your original will safe (preferably in a safe).

HOME ARCHITECTURAL STYLE We built our home in Dulong overlooking the Sunshine Coast in 2005 in what I like to call Australian coastal style. It is traditional with its use of local timber, modern with its lines, Queenslander-ish with its breezy central hall, large decks and louvres, and coastal with its timber slatting and bleached blonde floors.


INTERIORS WHAT IS YOUR STYLE? My style is relaxed functionality with personality – you need to keep a sense of you no matter what design style you apply to your home. Always infuse a sense of your own personality so your home doesn’t end up looking just like the floor of a Freedom shop, as lovely as they are. Keep things light, timeless and natural.

STATEMENT PIECE Our old pieces collected over the years. For instance an old Chinese shop sign from time living in Asia or the carved timber turtle I carried back from PNG when I was 20.

Sitting on five acres at the top of Towen Mountain, my fanciful dream is to one day have an amazing timber guest treehouse and walkway built across our treelined gully.

FAVOURITE SPACE There are many loved aspects in the home but the Lutyens seats in the study picture window probably is the go-to spot. I used to read to the kids there.

STYLING SECRET Choose simple well-designed main pieces and have an organised home where there is a place for everything. When styling a room, invest in a main piece and then choose art and accents that you love (that doesn’t mean they have to be expensive). Choose smaller accessories like throws, plants and cushions last to soften the room.

WHEN I’M NOT WORKING... I’m usually running one of the kids around. But when at home in Dulong, I’d be working in the garden. It’s therapeutic to be surrounded by nature. We are so lucky here to have rural properties so close to the coast.

e have once again entered the season of fuzzy socks, hot chocolate, sweaters and huddling under blankets. Chances are, we will be spending way more time indoors than we usually do. Now is the perfect time to bring the outside in with furniture pieces made from timber and a nod to a more earthy colour palette. There are plenty of warm colours to help you achieve the perfect space to snuggle up. Think rusts, warm greens, charcoal and browns and you will be right on trend. If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace, let it make a statement by adding a screen that has personality or you could forgo the wood and add an elaborate candelabra. If you don’t have an indoor fireplace, then why not create one outside with a firepit. Basic to the most elaborate, all will have you enjoying your winter nights, especially if there are marshmallows involved. Our home offices also take centre stage in winter because it is so very easy to stay snuggled up under the covers rather than jump out of bed and hit the office. One solution to


have you feeling more motivated to get out from under the doona is to lean towards comfort in your office. Using crisp and clean lines in your office, make it clutter-free by adding a shelf for organising stationery and files and hang up a gorgeous painting that inspires creativity. Above all, make sure you find a desk lamp that you love!

Vintage Is In Vintage style has always been iconic for being chic and cosy, expressive and unique. It also never truly goes out of fashion, and vintage furniture seems to be the “it” deal for winter this year. Vintage means warm colours and designs and this throwback aesthetic can certainly add to your room’s cosiness. Featured ‘In The Sac Avenue Linen Throw Vintage’ available from James Lane

Bedrooms Take Centre Stage It’s only natural that we spend more time in our bedrooms in winter, and we therefore need to make sure it’s our own personal little sanctuary, a place to escape the winter chills. And what better way than with a four-poster bed with matching bedside tables, finished off with beautiful luxe linen. Featured product available at Harvey Norman

UPBEAT MARKET MASKS DEEPENING PROBLEM Builders say the increase in new house builds is not helping their profit margins as hoped. WORDS: Tracey Johnstone


he March quarter ABS residential construction figures show there is still heat in the market, but behind those figures there is a worrying picture emerging. Across Australia, work on houses reached a near-record high in the March quarter. As the HomeBuilder program continued to drive the surge, the ABS reports total dwelling approvals rose 18.9 per cent in March. On the Coast, the value of approved

residential construction for the March period was up 44.2 per cent, even though the number of approved dwellings dipped by 11.6 per cent while multi-unit dwellings, buoyed by downsizers, rose by 397.3 per cent. In April, the national number of dwelling approvals fell 8.6 per cent ABS director of construction Daniel Rossi reported. “While there was a fall in overall approvals, the April result highlights the continued strong demand for detached

housing, with private sector house approvals reaching a new record high in April, up 4.6 per cent,” he said. Masters Builders Queensland (MBQ) Sunshine Coast regional manager Nicola Scott expects Coast builders will remain busy until the end of 2022. But none of this positive news is helping the building company owners trying to meet the market demand for new housing and renovations. The harsh reality for some is they are in a profit-less bubble. “For any contracts entered into before for example December 31, all of the price hikes have impacted the builders quite significantly because of fixed price contract so the builders have to absorb the cost,” Ms Scott said. “We are definitely hearing that there are significant impacts on their financial and mental health.” MBQ are flat out trying to help their members deal with meeting the minimum financial requirements of the QBCC. “I am very concerned about how this is going to potentially impact on our builders financially, particularly the smaller operators,” Ms Scott said. So much is unknown about where the industry is heading as its operators try to

Masters Builders Queensland Sunshine Coast regional manager Nicola Scott deal with the uncertainty around border closures, severe material shortages and price hikes. Ms Scott added it’s having a domino effect on the community, including on homeowners in short-term rentals, while these unforeseen delays impact on the build timing. “Any builder trying to build these homes is really feeling the stress as they don’t want to let down their clients,” Ms Scott added. “There are just no winners here at the moment. As an industry we need to start checking in on our mates.”

It’s always exciting to bring potential development parcels of land with opportunity and scope. This level site has two houses on the site that would need to be demolished at some stage but currently offering some holding value. Located within walking distance to everything. A short stroll to Sunshine Plaza and the newly developing SunCentral CBD precinct - this is a prime location, close to the river and beaches.

he husband and wife duo of Daniel and Kelly Rowling, along with their team, are showing the Coast they can take on the big boys with their agency, going from strength to strength during the Coast’s property boom. The booming local property market has come at a great time for Rowling & Co Property, which struggled through last year with COVID-19 restrictions hitting hard. “We opened our agency at the beginning of last year and before we had a chance, the country went into lockdown, we literally didn’t make any income for the first six months of last year,” Mr Rowling says. Fast forward to today and Rowling & Co Property has grown quickly and is fast becoming a leading agency on the Coast, opening two office locations in Mountain Creek and Mooloolaba in the past 12 months. “We’re so excited and proud to see our dream coming true, with the addition on this, our second and largest office here in Mooloolaba,” Mr Rowling says. The Rowling & Co Property team now

consists of five team members in sales and rental property management all over the Coast. “With our team now growing and adding property management division to our offering, we needed more space and

“We’re so excited and proud to see our dream coming true, with the addition of our second office”

the exposure that we get in this new location is terrific,” Mr Rowling says. “We’re proud of what we are creating not just for us, but to show our two kids and everyone out there that if you have passion and persistence you can achieve anything in life,” Mr Rowling says.

LIGHTNING EMPOWERING FIRST NATIONS YOUTHS empowering young women, the program has also been personally rewarding and informative. “The inspiration goes both ways,” Unie adds. “We do what we do here at Lightning and the girls are forging their own paths across the road (attending Chancellor State College). It’s nice to bring those two worlds together and see what magic we can create.” Sessions included a yarning circle, netball skills, cultural learnings, as well as engaging Aunty Bridgette and Aunty Kaylene to speak from their own experiences and background. The participants also took part in an artwork session to create traditional painted nulla nullas used as part of Lightning’s gift exchange with Queensland Firebirds and Adelaide Thunderbirds during Indigenous Round. Throughout it all themes around identity began to emerge. “What we discussed in our first group together was powerful women in our lives and why they are powerful,” she said. “We wanted to see how we could replicate that in our own lives, so that has been a theme.” “But also learning about our past and our histories and who we are – who makes us who we are and who we want to be. “There’s a bit of reflection in the sessions.” – Sunshine Coast Lightning

Ash Unie and Aunty Bridgette at Chancellor College


ultural education, selfawareness and respect underpin Sunshine Coast Lightning’s 2021 Confident Girls Foundation program – aptly named First Nations Local Leaders. The club has successfully run Confident Girls Foundation programs and clinics in various formats across the past four seasons, aimed at promoting healthy living and building resilience in disadvantaged youth communities. In 2021, Lightning engaged Chancellor State College to facilitate a program specifically geared towards First Nations people. Lightning athlete Ashlee Unie has

helped steer the program in conjunction with the Club’s community manager, local elders, First Nations representatives and fellow players. “We’ve developed a Confident Girls program called our First Nations Local Leaders and we have students from Chancellor State College who identify as First Nations,” Unie says. “We’re hoping to expose them to what we do at Lightning and hope they can in return help educate us on who they are and where they – and their ancestors – have come from.” Unie says that while the Confident Girls Foundation is centred around


The Melbourne Storm have hung on despite a second-half fightback from the Gold Coast Titans to continue their perfect record at Sunshine Coast Stadium with a 20-14 win. The Titans had a chance to steal the win in the final seconds but couldn’t execute the final pass, meaning Melbourne have now won all six games they have played locally. The night of A-grade footy kicked off with the annual James Ackerman Cup, played in memory of the Sunshine Coast myweeklypreview.com.au

MELBOURNE STORM VICTORY Falcons front rower, who tragically passed away during a game in 2015. The match between Ackerman’s two former clubs, the Sunshine Coast Falcons and the Redcliffe Dolphins, honours the legacy of the much-loved father of two. Redcliffe took the win in this year’s bout taking down the Falcons 34-24. Sunshine Coast Falcons chief executive officer Chris Flannery says the match is always one of the most special days on the calendar. – QRL

COAST GYMNASTS FLY HIGH AT NATIONALS Cooroy-based gymnasts have triumphed over athletes from much larger clubs to win five individual medals from the 2021 Australian Gymnastics Championships on the Gold Coast last month. Their haul included three national championships and a team silver. The Queensland team was able to win four out of the six apparatuses finals. Brothers Dean and Lyam Chandler finished third and fourth on vault with Dean winning his first individual medal at the championships. Their results were made more amazing by the fact the club did not have a full vault area or competition rings canopy, which made preparations for the event challenging. All athletes and coaches are looking forward to an even better nationals next year. – Cooroy Gymnastics Club

Last weekend, Kawana FC in collaboration with local charity Grab Life by the Balls honoured Lachlan Wells with an evening of first grade soccer and fundraising. The annual Lachlan Wells Charity Cup is always very dear to the Kawana Football Community. Lachlan Wells was a valuable, young team member who sadly lost his battle with mental health shortly after his team won the Grand Final in 2018. Founder of Grab Life by the Balls, Sam Parker stated, “We are stoked to be involved. We are all about promoting the overwhelming positive benefits of mateship for men’s health and wellbeing. We are a local grassroots charity, founded here on the Sunshine Coast.” Lachy’s legacy will always be remembered, not only have Kawana Football Club initiated the Lachlan Wells Memorial Scholarship which is awarded to a Kawana junior player each year, the community supported this event wholeheartedly, organising numerous prizes and raffles from local business’s to raise money for Grab Life by the Balls. – Kawana FC My Weekly Preview | June 10, 2021 77

with MWP’s man in the water

Brrr, it’s brass monkey weather peeps so time to dust off the steamer and sit out there and have a good old whinge about how cold it is. My advice? Stop complaining people and think about our Mexican cousins, being locked down for the past couple of weeks. They are dealing with 14 degree water temps while our Sunny Coast waters are a balmy 21 degrees. The small swell this weekend will be at the mercy of strong offshores, which will not help any decent swell arriving on our beaches. So, rubber up and enjoy the chat about the weather out in the water.
