There are some news stories that stay with you forever. Take the 911 attacks on America, for example. It was in a time before Facebook or digital news delivery and I can still remember exactly what I was doing when the news flashed across my television screen. More recently, it was the nationwide COVID-19 press conference given by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, which left a permanent imprint on my memory. I will never forget the gnawing feeling in the pit of my stomach as it all unravelled, and the country was left grappling with the shock of a mass lockdown. Then there was the heartbreaking story of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which was shot down in July 2014, killing 283 passengers, including 80 children. I can still feel the lump that rose in my throat as I

scrolled through the newsfeed on my phone, image after image, headline after headline bringing waves of disbelief. Now, seven years after the incident in which a Buk missile caused the plane to break apart mid-air, a Coast man is preparing to address the court proceedings and deliver a victim impact statement. Matthew Horder’s parents, Howard and Susan, were two of the 38 Australians on that flight. Matthew, who spoke with journalist Peter Hall, says he and his brothers will be, “standing up for Mum and Dad as they would have wanted us to… our main objective is to tell the world what we have lost.” You can read the story of bravery, strength and a son’s love on page 14 of this week’s edition. Until next week, take care. Candice Holznagel cholznagel@myweeklypreview.com.au

When can they come home? Mounting airline ticket costs, cancelled flights, uncertainty – this is the reality for the thousands of Australians trying to return to their home country in the age of COVID. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.


ustralians still overseas are facing eye-watering costs as they navigate the difficult reality of booking a flight to come home. An Australian man living in the US has estimated it will cost he and his wife almost $50,000 to move to the Sunshine Coast. Tim and Sharli McLachlan have been trying to return to Australia since last year. They have had two separate airline cancellations and fear their third attempt could fall through any day. It comes as Australia halved international arrival caps last week until at least next year. The decision, made by National Cabinet in early July as part of a four-phase approach to end lockdowns, has resulted in the number of people allowed to enter the country falling from 6070 to 3035. During the reduction there will be more government-facilitated flights to bring Australians to the Northern Territory’s Howard Springs quarantine centre.

Demand for the flights is expected to rise under smaller caps. Mr McLachlan has lived in the US for 21 years after a one-year role managing IT application delivery with IBM Australia led to a permanent position with IBM US. Now retired and fully vaccinated with Moderna, Mr and Mrs McLachlan wish to move to Australia to be closer to family. They first attempted to book flights in October 2020. With this came the task to coordinate shipping of their belongings and beloved dog, Willow. “We tried booking flights for February 2021 and worked with a shipping company and pet transportation,” Mr McLachlan says. “At that time in October 2020 it was not possible to actually buy a flight.” In January this year, Mr McLachlan booked two economy plus tickets and paid about $5600 for a June 26 flight to Melbourne with United Airlines, only for them to be cancelled and fully refunded by the airline on February 16. Then in March

Mr McLachlan was able to book two tickets with Qantas for November 15 at a total cost of around $8840. “We opted for economy plus seating upgrades with Qantas and were happy to have the flights booked,” he says. That flight was cancelled on May 24 and Mr McLachlan says he was offered flight credit. “We are still waiting for a refund requested a month ago.” The most recent and current booking was made on June 20 for two economy tickets at a total cost of about $8500, with Singapore Airlines. “These are still booked for the 13th of November 2021 to Melbourne to collect our pet from the Immigration Quarantine Facility – the only one in Australia.” Along with the stress of securing a flight, Mr McLachlan says the changing situation had caused havoc with shipping plans and he estimates the total cost to return to Australia to be around more than $40,000, plus around $10,800 in

immigration fees for his American wife. While registered with MyGov, Mr McLachlan says he did not receive any other formal information from Australia and says many of the current protocols make returning after so many years overseas difficult. “This is the frustrating part. Government and business leaders are making decisions based on the majority [of people who] fly to somewhere for work and back or come back from a trip overseas, but there are a number of expats who need to ship goods, pets and organise for living in their home country again.” Currently living in Arizona, Mr McLachlan was born in Moree, New South Wales. His sister, who lives on the Coast, was preparing to sell her home, so the couple decided to purchase the property to live in on their return. “My sister lives in Buderim. We purchased her house in April to allow her to move into a retirement community.”

The luck of the duck

Did you know?

Do you remember?

Babies have more bones than adults. At birth, a human has 300 bones with cartilage between many of them. This gives us extra flexibility, which is important when we pass through the birth canal. As we age, some of our bones fuse, leaving the average adult with 206 bones.

The 1990s was the decade of chokers, Game Boy, beepers and Tamagotchi. Sure, we forgot to feed them occasionally, but there was no digital pet better than these, which were first released by Bandai in Japan in 1996. Within six months, they became one of the biggest toy fads in history, and now, thanks to our fondness for nostalgia, these small egg-shaped computers are back for the modern era with a new edition released in 2018.

By the numbers. More than 25 years ago, a cargo ship travelling from Hong Kong to the United States accidentally lost a shipping crate in the Pacific Ocean. Inside that crate were 28,000 rubber ducks unwittingly about to embark on many long journeys across the globe. Today, rubber ducks continue to pop up on shores from Australia to Alaska, and it’s considered lucky if you can find one.

Renovation rules for

homeowners There’s a renovation revolution happening across the country, as homeowners stay and improve rather than sell and upgrade. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

The Block 2020 winners Jimmy and Tam Wilkins IMAGE: BRIGHTON HOMES


here is no denying Australia’s renovation revolution is trending. With the property market continuing to soar and more residents working or spending time at home, homeowners are looking to create the ultimate holiday-from-home escape or update their property. With this comes spending, and the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ latest figures indicate renovation loans soared 26.5 per cent in the past 12 months to a 17-year high of $403.1 million. Housing Industry Association (HIA) economist Angela Lillicrap says across the country, loans for renovations continue to grow as loans for new builds slow with the end of the HomeBuilder initiative. “Lending for renovations continues to be strong,” she says. “The value of loans for alterations and additions is up by 66.7 per cent in the three months to April 2021 compared to the same time last year. “Households have diverted funds that would have typically been spent on overseas travel into buying a new

home or improving their existing one.” Closer to home, HIA Sunshine Coast manager Ken Smith tells My Weekly Preview more homeowners are choosing to renovate due to several factors and lifestyle changes. “People are working much more from home now, so people are doing a lot more renovations in building areas for studies and at-home offices. “A lot of people have had a lifechanging realisation and are wanting to find comfort at home. “That is certainly a trend at the moment.” Mr Smith says the other aspect is due to interstate migration and the ratio of people moving to the Sunshine Coast versus the amount of people leaving the region. This is driving the property and rental shortage and subsequent market price hike, and forcing more homeowners to fix up, rather than ship out. “There are a lot of people coming in and not a lot of people going out,” Mr Smith says. “A lot of people are renovating the properties they’ve got

“People are making do with what they’ve got or spending money to upgrade” HIA Sunshine Coast manager Ken Smith

because they can’t necessarily move to a new place. “People are making do with what they’ve got or spending money to upgrade what they’ve got.”

Mr Smith says approvals for dwelling alterations in the past 12 months were high but did not break any records, with most of the focus locally on new construction. “Dwelling approvals for alterations and approvals in the past 12 months on the Sunshine Coast totalled $280 million,” he says. “Building is very busy in the renovations market and although the figure is high, many builders are concentrating on new home construction.” Deciding to renovate comes with one very important task: actually renovating. Whether you are a renovation master or rookie, making a dream come to life can be difficult, especially if you are limited to space, time or a budget. No strangers to the renovation game, 2020 winners of The Block and Sunshine Coast locals Jimmy and Tam Wilkins say they love the feeling of breathing new life into a rundown home. “I love nothing more than coming across a home that is worse for wear and bringing character back into that home myweeklypreview.com.au

and making it warm and friendly and somewhere you can create beautiful memories,” Tam says. “There is nothing more gratifying than seeing that come to life, and being part of the whole process is really special. It is something I absolutely love.” With 15 years’ experience in the industry as a plumber, Jimmy says he has “almost grown up” in the world of renovations. “I love tools, I love being on the tools, I love transforming things. It’s almost embedded in me,” Jimmy says. “The love for seeing a house that is fully dilapidated go from that to an absolutely stunning build is just something I love seeing and love seeing the process of it.” When renovating, Tam believes there is something important in keeping the home’s original character. “It is really important when you are renovating to pay homage to the home that you have; the original home,” she says. Jimmy and Tam made their dream move to the Sunshine Coast earlier this year, just in time for their five-year-old daughter Frankie to begin Prep, and are now looking for their own home to buy and renovate. “We are currently looking for our first home,” Tam says. “We are trying to find something we can put our own touch on as well – so watch this space.” Currently working on a renovation for Sunshine

Mitre 10, the couple is also preparing to embark on another television adventure with the upcoming show Renovate or Rebuild, and is in the process of launching their own business. “We are in the process of launching our own business called Captain and Queen,” Jimmy says. “It’s going to be a design business and plumbing and gas fitting. “I’m also going to study my builder’s license so that at one stage we can be a one-stop shop for renovating.” The couple will appear at the opening of Sunshine Mitre 10’s new flagship store on July 24 alongside much-loved Aussie personality, The Block’s Scott Cam. Sunshine Mitre 10 general manager Neil Hutchins says the company is celebrating 110 years and it is exciting to see the new 13,000-square metre site opening. “There will be plenty of suppliers throughout all departments to answer questions and give advice about DIY projects,” Mr Hutchins says. The new store, at 980 Nambour Connection Road, will employ 40 local staff and mark the 19th location across Queensland. “This new Nambour location is special, because Nambour is where the company’s 110-year history began,” he says. “So, it is great to see this new store, which will support our retail customers as well as the increasing demand on the Sunshine Coast for trade supplies.”

Looking back As Sunshine Mitre 10 celebrates its 110-year milestone, and its reign as one of the oldest surviving businesses here on the Coast, we take a look back at its history and the local families who invested time and money into turning their dream into success. Established in 1910 by Walter Lanham, W Lanham & Sons Saw Mill was built on Price Street in Nambour. The business eventually shifted to its current location on Court Road in 1945 and by 1975 became known simply as Lanhams. Meanwhile a little way down the road, the Melville family-owned business Melco had spent the past 20 years supplying Noosa and surrounds with timber and builders’ hardware. Realising a demand in the market, it became apparent to Keith, John and Mark Melville that in

order to reach new heights, they needed to be associated with a national brand. The Melco business joined the Mitre 10 group, and with the expansion, they invested in a new purpose-built space. Located on Venture Drive, in Noosa, the store was called Melco Mitre 10. In 2008 the Melco and Lanhams companies merged, creating an entity that was previously known as MelcoLanhams and today is known as Sunshine Mitre 10. Fast forward to 2021 and the company now has 19 stores across Brisbane and Queensland, including in Eagle Farm, Bundaberg, Caloundra, Coolum, Cooroy, Dalby, Gympie, Kawana, Kingaroy, Kunda Park, Mareeba, Nambour, Noosa, Roma, St George and Weipa.

Jimmy and Tam’s renovating tips 1. Do your homework on your trades. You need to be confident that your trades are the right people for the job. Maybe go and check out some of their previous work. You get what you pay for so going with the cheapest option probably won’t get you the best result. 2. Pinterest is going to be your best friend. Make a separate folder for each room you are working on. Put as many inspo picks in that folder as you can – you will start to notice some similarities in the pictures you have chosen this will help narrow down the design elements you are after. 3. Always allow 10 per cent of your budget for changes. Renovations usually never go to plan, roadblocks always occur and the budget can suffer. At the start after you have done up a budget, put 10 per cent aside so you’re not pulling your hair out when you have gone over budget – renovating is stressful enough as it is. Then if you come in under budget at the end, happy days. 4. Layout is the most important part of the design process. You must get the functionality right the first time, as you don’t want to be doing it again. Do a couple of different design layouts, ask friends what they think, ask your builder – the more people you get involved the better. 5. Reuse materials where you can, as not only does it save you money, but it will also bring character from the original house. There is nothing better than paying homage to what was already there. It will instantly make your house feel warm and cosy and create an organic style throughout. 6. Do your research on products. There are so many amazing products out there these days that you may never have seen. It pays to look around, even attend some display villages to see what the most popular design trends are.

Seven years after flight MH17 was shot down, a Sunshine Coast son will finally get the chance to “stand up for Mum and Dad’’ and tell the world what his family lost in the unimaginable tragedy. WORDS: Peter Hall, Sunshine Coast News.

Howard and Susan Horder

14 My Weekly Preview | July 22, 2021

14.indd 1



aturday, July 17, is the anniversary of the 2014 atrocity that sent shockwaves around the globe. A Malaysia Airlines flight, en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was brought down by a surface-to-air-missile over eastern Ukraine where rebels were fighting government forces. A total of 298 people were killed, including 80 children and 38 Australians. Among them were beloved Brisbane retirees Howard, 63, and Susan Horder, 62, who were returning from their trip of a lifetime in Europe. They had spent a month in Ireland, visited one of their sons, David, in London and enjoyed an Andre Rieu concert in the Netherlands. Their other sons, Matthew and Adam, are from the Sunshine Coast and Melbourne, where David also has relocated to since the incident. Matthew, 46, is vice-president and a former Nippers chairman at Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club, which protects the beach his parents adored. The spot was so special to them, they wanted their ashes placed there. After seven years, the family is now hoping for justice and some finality as a trial gathers momentum in the Netherlands. Three Russians and a Ukrainian are accused of downing MH17 and murdering all those on board. The most senior, Igor Girkin, was commanding Russian-backed separatists in the area. Early evidence heard in The Hague has focused on the surface-to-air Buk missile involved, where it originated and who provided it to the separatists. However, in September, Matthew and his brothers will have the chance to address the court proceedings – being livestreamed

Matthew Horder – and deliver a victim impact statement, most likely via video conferencing. “We will be standing up for Mum and Dad as they would have wanted us to … we will be their voice,’’ Mr Horder says. “Of course, we hope someone is held to account and to get some finality at the end of this trial, but our main objective is to tell the world what we have lost.’’ With the anniversary always a difficult time, Mr Horder decided to give a talk at endED Espresso Bar at Buddina, which raises funds for the eating disorders support network of the same name. Charity work, volunteering and exercise have helped him cope with depression, anxiety and PTSD in the wake of the tragedy. The talk attracted a group of friends from surf lifesaving, Matthew’s work in the sport and recreation industry and others who had joined him on charity walks that help organisations, including Cancer Council Queensland and Wesley Mission. He told the group that his parents had been at the back end of a dream trip to Europe where they were having the time of their lives. His father had been “posting

every day’’ the photos of their many enjoyable moments. But on July 17, the family’s world was changed forever. “Sudden loss is one thing, but the way it happened was something I struggled to come to terms with, and it has had a big impact on the way I live my life. No-one was prepared for this kind of event – it shocked the world,” Mr Horder says. As the unthinkable event happened overnight Australian time, Mr Horder did not find out until early on July 18, when he awoke and saw multiple missed calls from his brothers. “I called my brother in Melbourne and he was having trouble speaking. He eventually spat out that our parents’ plane had come down. I said, ‘What the hell are you talking about?’ “Then I turned on the TV and there it was … pictures of a burnt-out wreckage… The grief reaction was instant.’’ Mr Horder says his father had been a remarkably organised person and left a “dossier’’ to be opened if anything happened while they were away. He said it was like his father was talking to him through the package, telling him everything from how to get into their house, disable alarm systems and where vital documents were kept. Mr Horder says the media scrutiny was something his family was unprepared for. It was sudden, intense and overwhelming. “The calls started coming quickly. Media had bought a copy of the manifest from someone in Malaysia and had more information than DFAT. They didn’t give a sh*t about Mum and Dad and just wanted us to say something negative about Russia or (Russian President) Vladimir Putin.’’ Mr Horder says the most difficult tasks for him were to tell his two children about their grandparents and also his mother’s best friend, who was devastated. The Federal Government has provided excellent support to the family, he says. A

few days after the plane came down, he was in the gym trying to distract himself from the turmoil when the phone rang. “A man spoke and said: ‘It’s Tony Abbott here. I’m calling to see how you’re going’. I spoke with the (then) prime minister for 20 to 30 minutes and told him about Mum and Dad, that they were hard-working Australians who had never asked for anything, but now needed their country’s help. At that stage, we did not know where they were… their bodies… and whether we would ever be able to bring them home.’’ Mr Horder says the then PM and then-Minister for Foreign Affairs, Julie Bishop, had been at the forefront of getting a resolution through the United Nations that allowed the recovery operation in what was a war zone. Up to 500 Australians worked on the case, including servicemen and women, scientists and police. “This was pretty much the world’s biggest crime scene as people, belongings and fragments of aircraft had fallen over a 50-square-kilometre area in fields with giant sunflowers.’’ On August 15 that year, Mr Horder was contacted by the AFP, who said they had identified his mother and wanted to know whether to bring her home. “I got pretty upset and said: ‘What about Dad?’ I wanted them to come home together. Five days later, they identified Dad, which was a huge relief.’’ Howard and Susan Horder were flown home and their family was able to give them a fitting farewell. In keeping with their wishes, their ashes were placed off the rocks at the northern end of Mooloolaba, where the caravan park used to be. “It was their favourite place and will always be special to all of us.”

Wishlist’s annual Jazz and Wine Festival is on again for 2021 after a 2020 hiatus. The event, on Saturday, August 14 will be held at Gunabul Homestead in Gympie featuring renowned jazz and blues artists, award-winning wines and gourmet food. “It’s a fun-filled afternoon many Sunshine Coast and Noosa residents travel to be at,” Wishlist fundraising and events manager Lisa Wilson says. “It’s an opportunity to enjoy a relaxed evening out, all while supporting Wishlist. This year we will be raising much-needed funds to give patients access to a range of vital services within our new Wishlist Centre.” Construction of Wishlist Centre’s stage one will start next month with the facility expected to open in mid-2022. General admission and corporate tickets to the Jazz and Wine Festival are available at wishlist.org.au.


BUDDING MUSOS TAKE NOTE The University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) will offer a new degree in 2022 to amplify the skills of the next generation of music industry artists and professionals. USC is offering a Bachelor of Music next year for the first time to encourage sustainable careers in an industry working on new opportunities for success during COVID-19 restrictions, such as global online markets. It will be taught by award-winning industry professionals and recording artists including major label songwriter, producer and performing artist Dr Andy Ward (pictured), renowned music producer Dr Lachlan ‘Magoo’ Goold, and cutting-edge music theorist Dr Briony Luttrell.


Roadside cameras that can catch drivers using their phones behind the wheel or not wearing a seatbelt will be permanently rolled out on Queensland roads on July 26 as part of the state government’s $1.69-billion road safety plan. Transport and Main Roads minister Mark Bailey is likening distracted driving to drink driving. “Our message has always been direct and very simple: just put your phone away.” The decision comes after a successful trial in 2020 with drivers being told to expect to be caught “anywhere, anytime”.

NRL ROUND 19 AT STADIUM The Round 19 clash of the 2021 NRL Telstra Premiership between the South Sydney Rabbitohs and New Zealand Warriors is locked in at Sunshine Coast Stadium on July 24. With the Rabbitohs currently third on the ladder, this is a great opportunity for local footy fans to see the heavyweights in action. Tickets: sunshinecoaststadium.com.au.


CALOUNDRA KIDS WIN $1500 KIT Caloundra West sisters Aleea, Shyla and Laiken, now know a whole lot more about preparing for disasters after winning the passport competition at the Emergency Services and Disaster Preparedness Expo. They scored a $1500 four-person evacuation kit after visiting stalls at the recent expo, hosted by Sunshine Coast Council and emergency services, and answering questions to collect stamps on their passport. Visit the council’s Disaster Hub website to find the latest updates, practical resources and what to do before, during and after an emergency.

Thousands of garden enthusiasts converged on Nambour Showgrounds for the 36th annual Queensland Garden Expo from July 9 to 11. Despite a local lockdown just a week prior, organisers were able to present Australia’s largest gardening speaker program and more than 300 exhibitors, injecting millions into the local economy. “The economic impact of this event is estimated to be between $8 million and $11 million, so we were thrilled that the event was able to go ahead, particularly after last year’s cancellation,” organiser Marion Beazley says. “We are delighted at how well-supported the event was and thank all who participated and attended.”

DIRECT AIR NEW ZEALAND FLIGHTS BEGIN Air New Zealand’s direct service between the Coast and Auckland began on July 17 as part of the recommencement of quarantine-free Trans-Tasman bubble arrangements between New Zealand and Queensland. The Auckland service was the first international commercial passenger flight to land on Sunshine Coast Airport’s new runway since it opened in June 2020, and the arrival of the A320 aircraft marked the start of a year-round service. “We are so excited to connect people across the ditch for the first time since October 2019, and to welcome our first international passenger flight since the runway opened 12 months ago,” Sunshine Coast Airport chief executive Andrew Brodie says. “New Zealand has traditionally been the largest source of international visitors to the Sunshine Coast, and the additional flights will deliver an extra 14,000 seats to the route every year as well as a further $8 million boost to the local visitor economy.”

Healing through creativity IMAGE: NIK BUTTIGIEG

Sunshine Coast therapist Nicola Turschwell recently returned home after leading art therapy groups in the Kimberley, where she used creativity to heal trauma. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


n June 6, Nambour art therapist Nicola Turschwell packed up her four-wheel drive with crayons, coloured papers, clay, large sheets of paper and camping gear and set off on a five-day drive to remote communities in Western Australia to teach art therapy for five weeks. It was the adventure of a lifetime, and one she hopes to repeat every year. It wasn’t the first time she had ventured into the outback. In 2017 she went through a tough separation after 30 years of marriage. She left her Sunshine Coast home of 28 years, her husband and her job, accepting a new job in the Kimberley without hesitation. The two years she spent there planted deep seeds of love and appreciation for the Indigenous communities she recently went back to visit. A Gestalt therapist who focuses on sensorimotor art therapy, she spent time with health workers in Kununurra in the Kimberley and Broome, teaching them the profound healing effects of art therapy,

Nicola Turschwell with art therapy group participant Glen Dixon which they could then take to people in the Indigenous communities they serve, many who suffer from inter-generational trauma. “Sensorimotor art therapy taps into the wisdom of the body as you create with visual and sensory art tools,” Ms Turschwell says. “It initiates a process of self-awareness, transformation and healing. Face-to-face training events are few and far between up there and this is a hands-on experience. “The health workers go through calming methods and then take these simple, accessible therapy tools out to the remote communities they serve. I work in close consultation with the local community and co-present with a local Indigenous worker, so it is done with the deepest respect for the local elders and

aligned with culture and country. “Glen Dixon is a traditional owner of the country around Broome and he had the best stories. We made a group mandala where we worked on one big piece of paper like a community. He was really clear that it had to be about country, so we were very much guided by his direction and other First Nations people in the group. Using the red dirt and gluing on the dried grasses, he made an incredible image of a crab out of the clay we were working with. He was talking about hunting. We just had beautiful conversations.” Ms Turschwell says there’s a mistaken belief that art therapy requires the participants to be good at art, but in fact it’s more of a healing process than trying to be

the next van Gogh. “Talking to some Indigenous people out there, they said ‘we wish you changed the name to creative healing’. Some of the workers didn’t want to attend because they thought they weren’t good at art. That’s the big fallacy. It’s not about art, it’s about the true expression of yourself. “My workshops are primarily trauma informed, so it’s about working with traumatised people. It’s a really gentle way to work with trauma – not going into the trauma stories but giving options to calm and soothe through art.” In 2019, Ms Turschwell was accepted into The Refinery, an eight-week incubator to turn a creative idea into a sustainable business, and is now running her ‘creative mindfulness’ business with art therapy, workshops and clinical supervision on the Sunshine Coast. She calls herself a ‘disruptive creative’. Having recently become a grandmother, she’s aiming to balance her work here with regular trips to remote communities. “I’m 58 years old and I’m really standing in who I am. I want the best of both worlds. I would like these trips to be yearly, if not more regular. This was a test case to see how I went with the drive. Overall, it’s five days coast to coast without stopping and I made a bit of a holiday out of it. “This trip was a yearning to go back to that country. I loved it – the pace, the country, the people, the big open spaces, the skies from horizon to horizon, storms in wet season, stars at night. It’s so beautiful – red rocks and red earth. It’s healing country in every sense of the word for me.”

SMALL FRUIT A BIG WINNER FOR COAST GROWER What started out as a project for her high school students has blossomed into a successful business for Glass House Mountains finger lime grower Jade King, who now has 1200 finger lime plants on her family farm and exports around the world. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.


s someone who always wanted to become a primary producer, high school teacher Jade King set her agricultural students an assignment nine years ago to look into new markets. Now farming a small fruit that packs a “wow factor” punch, Ms King is stamping the Green Valley Fingerlimes name on the market. “I always wanted to grow something native, that was the plan,” Ms King says. “Macadamias, everyone was doing that. I looked into it and then I decided to put it into one of my students’ assessment tasks to look at new and upcoming markets in agriculture “I said ‘whatever they come up with, I’ll put in a couple of trees’. One of the students actually presented on finger limes and that was the beginning.” On her property in the Glass House Mountains, Ms King planted “a few” finger lime trees, which quickly turned into a “few more”. Finger limes are a native Australian citrus that grow from a rainforest tree in southeast Queensland and northern New

South Wales. Although the finger-shaped citrus grows year-round, its official season is from December to July. Now, Ms King has 1200 plants of the champagne red variety of finger limes, which she sells locally and exports as far as Hong Kong, Singapore and Italy. “The finger limes are a red skin variety

with a champagne to red colouring of citrus inside. Unlike normal citrus, the inside is like little pearls, and they pop in your mouths and give that extra wow factor to any dish they are added too. “They can be added to cocktails, seafood, dessert – but I love personally just throwing them through a tossed salad. Rather than a lime dressing, the pops of the lime through the salad make it a bit more special.” The red champagne variety grows on a 2.5-metre bush that Ms King says is spiky, making harvesting an interesting job. “They are all hand harvested with gloves on.” Green Valley Fingerlimes was announced as a gold medallist in the Delicious Harvey Norman Produce Awards for 2021. Cameron Matthews, former head chef of the award-winning Long Apron Restaurant at Spicers Clovelly Estate, nominated the farm for the awards, unbeknownst to Ms King.

“It was a massive surprise to me to be nominated,” Ms King says. “He [Mr Matthews] uses it in some of his restaurants and a lot of other chefs over the Sunshine Coast use them as well, so it was really lovely to be recognised. “I did not really expect anything to come from it. It’s a massive highlight to have in the industry and certainly getting our product out there to people.” The company also won the New Exporter Award at the Queensland Horticulture Export Awards in June. Ms King says she is proud of her efforts after nearly a decade of growing her orchid and says it is very much a family affair with her three teenage children living and helping out on the farm. “The kids are an amazing part of what we do as well. “I have a 15, 17 and 18-year-old. They are all part of the business with me, which is really quite nice.”

Residents can purchase products during the season from December to July at greenvalleyfingerlimes.com.

REVISING OUR SHARE MARKET INDEX TARGET Company earnings per share are the starting point for valuing individual companies, and hence are critical in determining a so-called fair value range for the overall share market. In May, aggregate earnings per share (EPS) estimates on the S&P/ASX 200 Index reached pre-COVID levels of $380, and in the couple of months since then the aggregate EPS forecast has surged to $417 to stand almost 10 per cent higher than pre-pandemic levels! We believe this EPS estimate will continue to move higher. An earnings upgrade cycle – and the likelihood that central banks will respond to the stronger growth backdrop by slowing the pace of monetary accommodation, placing upward

pressure on interest rates – will likely be a headwind for price-earnings (PE) multiple expansion. As such, we now apply a PE multiple of 17.5 to 18.5 times (which is about half a point lower than our previous assumption and lower than the trading range in the last year) on our December 2021 forward EPS estimate of $425. This brings us to an S&P/ASX 200 Index valuation of 7400 to 7800. We set this as our new index target range for the balance of CY21. This compares favourably to the current index level which is approximately 7300 points. Our previous index target range of 6700 to 7300 was based on the assumption that forward earnings estimates would only return to pre-COVID levels, not surpass them, as they have now done. The factors below suggest the balance of risk for EPS estimates remains to the upside: • Business confidence – The National Australia Bank survey reports business confidence and conditions are near record highs. Current levels of business confidence have previously been associated with earnings growth of 10 to 20 per cent versus the current forecast 12-month growth rate of circa 13 per cent. • Commodity prices – Spot commodity prices still sit above consensus forecasts.

The longer this persists, the more likely consensus estimates will have to be upgraded, leading to a stronger earnings outlook for the miner-dominated materials sector. For example, iron ore prices are currently around $US200/t compared with the median consensus estimate of $US155/t for the balance of this year. • Broad-based recovery – The materials sector has been the major driver of the recovery in earnings estimates. However, there are eight to nine other sectors seeing improving EPS trends, but which

are yet to recoup their pre-COVID levels. As pandemic restrictions continue to lift, (such as looser social distancing rules and an easing of lockdowns), the earnings recovery is likely to broaden. Assuming the materials sector sustains its earnings trend, and all other sectors see EPS estimates back to pre-pandemic levels, it implies a 12-month forward EPS estimate of at least $425.

says. “We decided we should be doing a bit of recycling of stamps as a fundraiser. “We started off in a small way and it has really taken off since then.” The collected stamps were given to a charity in Sydney until the club began donating the money to the Australian Lions Children’s Mobility Foundation in 2004. “[The foundation] was set up only three years earlier to provide walking frames for children born with cerebral palsy. “The club I was in at the time down in Wollongong, we purchased a walking frame

orting through thousands of stamps is a dream day for a Pacific Paradise philately enthusiast hoping to make a difference to the lives of children with mobility conditions. As secretary of the Australian Lions Stamp Club and a Lions Club member for

40 years, Ross Paine is always on the lookout for stamp donations to sort and sell at auction. “I started this project with another Lion over the other side of the continent when we were at an international Lions convention in Brisbane in 1991,” Mr Paine

for a child, and I was fortunate enough to see that child get fitted in this frame. “It was very emotional to see a kid who had been crawling around the floor all of a sudden, at five years of age, standing up for the first time. “The smile on their face was something you never see again. It was something that rung a bell with a lot of us.” The collection drive has “taken off” in the past three years with more than a tonne of donated stamps raising $167,000 for the project. Now, Mr Paine is calling on residents who have unwanted collections, including albums, stamps cut from envelopes, first day covers or mint stamps to consider donating them to the cause. “Everything that we get we sell in bulk. Most of them are Australian stamps and most of them have been just picked off envelopes. We sort them into four different

groups, depending on where they are from and how much they are worth, and put them into a wine box. “We sell about 40 to 50 wine boxes full of stamps every year, so about 500 kilograms a year.” Mr Paine now has assistants helping in New South Wales, Victoria, Western and South Australia and Tasmania and says a few rare stamps have been discovered across the country. “The fellow in Sydney picked up a Penny Black, which is one of the most valuable stamps in the world,” he says. “The Penny Black was the first stamp issued in England back in the 1800s. “We also get a lot of stamps prior to federation in Australia in 1901.” An avid stamp collector himself, Mr Paine donated his own collection to the project and has been recognised with an OAM for his contribution to the Australian Lions Stamp Club. “It’s virtually a full-time job,” he says. “I’m going to hit 80 this year and that’s all I do. I play with these stamps six hours a day, seven days a week. “It’s mediation; the mind goes into neutral and puts everything else out of it and I can sit for hours.” Anyone wishing to donate their stamps can contact Mr Paine at rosspaine@bigpond.com or 0419 449 881.

Sunshine Coast Grammar School’s Erin Blond was one of 2000 students worldwide chosen from 7000 applicants, and the only student in Queensland to be part of Yale Young Global Scholars

(YYGS) Summer School Program. As part of the program she participated in an online course connecting with Yale professors, not-for-profit managers and United Nations workers from across the world. Erin spent two weeks attending the Solving Global Challenges course, which focuses on issues of inequality, environment, activism and social

connectivity through university-style lectures, seminars and workshops. “I loved working with Yale professors, and gaining mentors while learning about the environmental crisis, social inequality, COVID and a multitude of other significant issues, which I can’t wait to incorporate within my future,” Erin says. “Overall, YYGS was an incredible experience and although not in person, it really expanded my horizons and world view. “I loved making friends with students from across the world – Poland, India, Botswana and America, just to name a few – and I have been able to continue interacting with these students, gaining connections and becoming involved in their individual projects and ideas. “Being the only student in Queensland and one of just a handful in Australia, it allowed me the opportunity to represent not only myself and my school but a much larger group of individuals.” Erin attended the course from 9pm to 2am, participating in lecturers, tutorials and group activities from the comfort of her bedroom. “I would definitely recommend other curious students in younger grades to get involved with this incredible experience because you just don’t know where YYGS might take you.”

Construction of the highly anticipated Brisbane Road upgrade between Walan Street and Kyamba Court, which will result in the widening of the corridor to four traffic lanes, is now underway. Sunshine Coast Council group executive Liveability and Natural Assets, Warren Bunker, says the construction will deliver the second and third stages of the Mooloolaba Transport Corridor Upgrade – designed to improve the community’s connectivity and travel choice. “This important transport project is scheduled for completion in late 2022 and will improve safety and traffic flow, reduce delays during peak periods and cater for future traffic growth in Mooloolaba.” Mr Bunker says power conduits were installed across Mayes Canal Bridge in June and underground infrastructure will continue to be installed along Brisbane Road as the project continues. Sections of Brisbane Road will be closed periodically throughout the project.

40 Years of Mechanical Experience

Kawana Forest Trail improvement Great news for Kawana Forest residents as council is upgrading a 500-metre section of the Kawana Forest Trail from Lemonwood Street. These works will improve the trail experience while also making it more useable during wet weather conditions.

2020/21 Budget

Cr Peter Cox Division three Warana Beach shelter upgrade A new roof shelter and bar stools have just been built onto the existing viewing platform at Beach Access 237. These additions will make it more user-friendly, especially during our hot summer months, and locals have already been making great use of the upgraded facility.

Late last month council handed down its $816 million budget. The budget contains several significant investments for division three, including $5 million to progress the 75-hectare Honeyfarm Road Sport and Recreation Precinct, $550,000 to commence implementation of the Kawana Regional Aquatic Centre masterplan and more than $210,000 to improve our parks and gardens. You can find out more about this year’s budget via council’s website at sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.

New pathway in Aroona


I’m pleased to advise council has recently completed the installation of a new 1.8-metre-wide pathway along Ridgehaven Court. The project will help improve neighbourhood connectivity and pedestrian safety for local school children. This project was funded by the federal government via the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

Work has begun on the Moondara Park exercise equipment renewal project in Wurtulla. The project began on July 11 and is expected to be complete by July 26, weather permitting. The park has a range of exercise equipment designed for strength, cardio and mobility training.

RACE THE ROO AND WIN GREAT PRIZES Local runners get ready to test how many laps you can run while racing a kangaroo at the second annual Race the Roo community running event on August 1. Hosted by Caloundra Triathlon Club, the aim is to outrun the roo that will be racing alongside runners for as many of the 1.1-kilometre laps as possible. Club president Carlee Driscoll says runners of all abilities can take part in the event. “The roo will start his first lap at a very relaxed pace and steadily increase the pace of each consecutive lap.”

“To stay in the race, runners will have to finish each lap before the roo gets to the finish line.” The overall male and female winner will each win $250 in prize money. There will also be random prizes up for grabs, including a $500 personal training package. The event, to be held at Skippy Park in Landsborough, is in partnership with Caloundra Community Bank. Online entries close on July 28. To find out more and to register, visit caloundratriathlonclub.com.au.

A new Mobile Police Beat has been deployed to Buderim and nearby suburbs to increase police presence and accessibility to the local community. The Buderim Mobile Police Beat will be stationed in the heart of Buderim for residents to access police services, seek advice and discuss local matters directly, and allow officers to take crime reports, victim statements and conduct field interviews while on the ground. Deputy Commissioner Doug Smith says he is looking forward to seeing the Mobile Police Beat out in the community.

“With this agile policing solution comes the ability to deploy a policing presence to locations where it is most beneficial to the community,” he says. “The mobile police beat will provide a greater opportunity for the community to engage with their local police and we are looking forward to strengthening the bond between police and their communities.” The Buderim Mobile Police Beat will initially be deployed every Monday and Wednesday, but its agility allows it to be available to nearby areas on other days of the week when needed.

VIRTUAL TREKKERS NEED YOUR HELP After a successful event in 2020, local trekker Gary McKitterick Gillett is again hoping to raise money for people living with Parkinson’s disease with the Virtual Everest Trek. The five-day event, beginning on July 26, will see Mr McKitterick Gillett and local Tina Beard climb two Sunshine Coast mountains, as well as several other teams across the country who will accumulate 8848 metres, the height of Mount Everest. “While again disappointing that we are unable to travel to Mount Everest Base Camp, we now have the opportunity to continue to help Shake It Up Australia and complete an awesome challenge in climbing Mount Coolum and Mount Ngungun a combined 42 times to match the height of Mount Everest’s summit,” he says. This year’s fundraising goal is

$10,000 for Parkinson’s research, and working with Parkinson’s patients at Nambour Hospital, Mr McKitterick Gillett’s goal is to help find a cure for the disease, which is the second most common neurological condition in Australia.

Film star Brooke Shields still looks amazing at 56 and says it’s all about sunscreen, drinking lots of water and using plenty of moisturiser so her skin doesn’t become dehydrated. Makeup artists say the single most important makeup trick for over 50s is to wear a bright lipstick. It gives an instant lift to your face. To get Brooke’s look, try MAC lipstick in Mangrove, a hot bright red, $30 from Mecca Maxima.

Matte eyeshadow is your friend as you age. Steer clear of metallic or shiny eyeshadows, which accentuate lines and wrinkles. We love the Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette, $44 from Mecca Maxima.

Skin loses colour as you age, so if you don’t use a bronzer, definitely don’t skip the blush. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush is an award-winning, soft cream blush that’s perfect for mature skin, $50 from David Jones.


50s When choo choosing a foundation, go for a shade or two warmer th than your exactt skin tone so you don’t look washed out and blend with a brush. Try Estée Lauder Futurist Aqua Brilliance Makeup SPF20 Foundation in Warm Vanilla, $78 from Sephora.


Estée Lauder Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara elongates and separates lashes, without clumping, $55 from David Jones.

GIVING UP ALCOHOL IN DRY JULY MAKES A DIFFERENCE Cancer is a shocking intruder and the cruel designer of human horror shows. It is indiscriminate and forces the recruitment of an expert team to make a battle plan, drawing on everything in the arsenal to fight. And it is shockingly prevalent. One in two men and women will be diagnosed with cancer by age 85. Cancer Council statistics also make for sobering reading: about 50,000 Australians died from cancer last year alone. But there is hope. In the 1980s, only half of those diagnosed with cancer of any kind survived. Now seven in 10 people will live for at least five years after diagnosis. Hope is oxygen and light when all about seems suffocatingly dark. A young, vibrant member of my family was thrust into battle three months ago. Quickly wrapping her lithe mind around her bowel cancer diagnosis, she has exhibited honesty, clarity and gumption in spades. She has already endured so many dreadful things in her fight. And the strength and love shown by her husband as he walks each step beside

her, gripping the hand of their toddler son, is enough to bring the toughest person unstuck. While those around a cancer patient feel shock, fear and anxiety too, the overwhelming need is to do something to channel the energy. And perhaps because cancer is so prevalent and so many others are in that place of needing to expend energy, Dry July — a cancer fundraiser currently underway — has enjoyed a surge in popularity. Since the first Dry July in 2008, the Dry July campaign has raised more than $60 million for people affected by cancer. Dry July is dedicated to helping improve the lives of people affected by cancer and their families by distributing the funds raised to Australian cancer organisations. We love such home-grown charities. In their report Charitable Giving in Australia, data specialists McCrindle found more than four in five of us give in some capacity, with the majority of givers choosing causes that have a local focus. Charity begins at home indeed. The best part of this model is that it weaves in all kinds of participation. You don’t even have to tip out the tipple to lend support. There are those who eschew booze for the month such as my daughter – who has already raised almost $1000 – and 38,000 other Australians. And there are those who lean back and raise our glasses to that effort while opening their wallets, like me. Cancer may be an indiscriminate, heartless invader that takes so much, but it can’t take away our support and love for each other. Cheers.

NO INCENTIVES NEEDED: INSTEAD APPLY COMMON SENSE Re Jeff Taylor’s letter: Where is the carrot? My Weekly Preview, July 15. We’re due to have our second COVID jabs in early August, however we have friends and family members who are anti-vaxxers. Some arguments relating to the speed at which current COVID-19 vaccines were developed and which vaccines are offered (or not) seem valid enough. I have our yellow Travel Doctor books of International Certificates of Vaccination, yellow fever, typhoid, pneumonia etc. – reminders of the days when travel was

carefree, almost taken for granted. In the future we may be refused entry to a country if we don’t have proof of COVID-19 vaccination. I don’t believe incentives to be vaccinated should be needed. Instead, apply a good dose of common sense. Give whatever it is to the small business owners running cafes, bars, tourism related industries, those who are struggling to keep their doors open.

DEMOCRACY VS AUTOCRACY Just want to let you know how much I enjoy My Weekly Preview, especially Jane Stephens’ articles. I’m convinced there is a massive mandate across Australia for leadership that shuns bickering and points scoring and instead moves forward in a way that provides opportunity and advancement for everyone… I agree with Jane that treating people fairly is fundamental to the collective way forward. I found the whole US election mind-bogglingly depressive. At least there

now appears some positive signs in what President Biden has described as the battle for the soul of America… I do love Jane’s reference to the great Martin Luther King: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness”. President Biden also noted recently what he called the battle between democracy and autocracy. Zero doubt in my mind Donald Trump was egregiously maneuvering for an autocratic democracy. Perhaps we need a benevolent dictator. I’d back someone like Jane. Peter, Coes Creek

Ashley Robinson has a disturbing encounter as he gets tested for sleep apnoea and spends half the night tangled up in wires.

Sami Muirhead wonders whether Delta Goodrem wishes she had a different name and contemplates the new generation of baby names.


am currently in the throes of being tested and fitted for a sleep apnoea machine, something I have put off for a number of years. I am a restless and noisy sleeper at the best of times and I was pretty sure I have suffered from sleep apnoea for a number of years – just have a look at me, it’s not rocket science. In saying that, the lovely lady my doctor sent me to has been remarkably tolerant. It all started when my doctor insisted I get tested. Well, on the 100th time I listened and he gave me another referral, which I eventually followed up on after he text me a couple of times. I then played a fair game of phone tag with Nyree from Healthy Sleep Solutions, which was mostly my fault as I was still pretty hesitant about the whole thing, so every time I got her voicemail, I was high-fiving myself. Eventually we touched base and I had my consultation, after which I was sent home with my test equipment. When we did the practice run, it made me look like a cross between a crazed suicide bomber and someone about to be strapped to the electric chair to meet my maker. It all seemed doable in the light of day, but a few

beers later approaching bedtime, it became far more difficult. In fact, if I was a suicide bomber, I would be a massive fail by time I had all the wires and pads in the right places. Did I mention I had to put a breathing apparatus up my nose? So what took 10 minutes to put on in the clinic took about 30 minutes at 9pm and I did not look anything like I thought I should by the time I went to bed. I woke up on numerous occasions tangled, sweating, swearing, until I ripped it all off at 3am, even though I was told they needed a minimum of six hours to get the data. I took it all back the next day and told my sad story to the nice lady and she told me if they didn’t get enough data we would have to do it all again. I had already decided I was never, ever doing that again. After another three sets of phone tag, I got the news that they had enough data and I was a chronic case. I am not sure if they got that from the data or the crazed look in my eyes when I returned the gear. Thus far things are going well. Even though I look like I am about to launched into the abyss every night, I am feeling better. Nyree deserves a medal.

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


h Delta! I refer to the divine Delta Goodrem and not the new COVID strain that seems more slippery than an NRL player hosting a secret barbecue gathering. Delta Goodrem surely must want to change her name, given current health updates. Let us talk baby names! The current generation of babies being born is known as Generation Alpha, and their parents are mostly Generation Y. The year 2010 marked the new generation – the most digital, global and visual young kids on the planet. Good luck to the Gen Ys (Millennials) raising the Alphas, as Ys are famous for being selfcentred, narcissistic, lazy, delusional and disloyal to a fault. And hello to you if any Gen Ys are reading this. Famous Gen Ys include Harry Styles, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and Avril Lavigne. Feeling old? I am a Generation X gal, as I was born between the mid 1960s and the 1980s. I am in good company. Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters, Jennifer Aniston, Liam Gallagher, Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock are all Gen X. Our mums and dads are Baby Boomers.

We work hard and play hard and we are famous for sort of raising ourselves. My favourite memory of Dad is him lathering himself in coconut tanning oil at the beach and smoking half a pack of ciggies while we were swimming out near the shark nets. For real! And yet, we didn’t die. In fact, we thrived. The Alphas are now in the spotlight and a new list of the most popular baby names in Australia shows they love sunny, botanic names such as Willow, Ivy, Lily, Violet, and Rose. But Heidi is no longer a name in the top 100. This makes me sad, as I never met a Heidi I did not like. Charlotte, Amelia and Olivia are the three most popular girl names in the country. And for boys Oliver, William and Noah are the top trio. Growing up, all I wanted was to be called Jane. Every Jane at school was cool and beautiful and I thought it was the most exotic name a girl could ever have, except for Hannah. Every Hannah at high school seemed to have a charmed life. How times change, as now I love unusual names. But back to Delta. Well, I guess she will be just fine with her supermodel looks, her majestic voice and her killer attitude.

Creative inspiration and intuitive insights are highlighted this week as Venus and Mars stimulate your generosity and spirituality. But romantic and platonic relationships look rather shambolic, especially towards the end of the week.

Communication looks all-consuming on Monday, when Mercury and Pluto ratchet up the intensity levels. Try to keep your cool. Some Scorpios will feel rather restless at work (especially on Thursday). Domestic changes are on the way.





Have you been waiting in the wings or sulking on the sidelines? This week, Jupiter (your boss planet) reverses from meek and mild Pisces into the bold and adventurous sign of Aquarius. It’s time to wake up, explore and experiment.

This week, Jupiter joins Saturn (your patron planet) back in the adventurous sign of Aquarius. You will be balancing the tried-and-tested, comfortable status quo with the need for change, expansion and growth. An opportunity is heading your way.

Jupiter transits back into your sign until December 29, so make sure you capitalise on fortuitous opportunities, which could come from unlikely people and inspirational places. The stars suggest a connection with someone special.

Relationships look complicated as loved ones debate a wide range of topics and your daily routine goes out the window. If you have a problem that’s bothering you, don’t over-think things. Instead, let your intuition be your guide.

Monday’s Mercury/Pluto opposition boosts your temperamental tendencies, which could end up alienating an authority figure (like your boss) or a loved one (like your partner). Hopefully you won’t put too many noses out of joint.

Restless twins aren’t usually particularly house-proud. But pleasure-planet Venus and proactive Mars are both visiting your home zone, so it’s a terrific time to spruce up your domestic abode, enjoy Casa Gemini and entertain in style.




Are you behaving like a bull on steroids? This week, aim to be smart and sexy (rather than self-indulgent and extravagant). Mercury and Venus give social media a boost as you communicate with family and friends and make influential connections.

This week, gung-ho Mars opposes Jupiter (which transits back into rebellious Aquarius), so rams are feeling restless and you’re keen to kick up your heels/hooves! But resist the temptation to be rash with cash and careless with relationships.

MOVING FROM RENTING TO OWNING: TOP LOAN TIPS It’s a great time to buy, but there are some pitfalls you should be looking out for. WORDS: Tracey Johnstone.


aking the choice between renting and buying is often hinged on the rental cost in a now inflated market versus what it will cost a person to service a home loan. SMS Finance director Brenden Brial says on the Coast there are still plenty of people looking to buy as home loan repayments can be “less or equal” to what they are paying in rent. It’s this thinking that is keeping him busy along with people looking to improve their interest rate arrangements and those wanting to take advantage of the increase in property prices by getting into an investment property. While there is still FOMO activity out there, Mr Brial is also occasionally hearing people say they are willing to wait until the market sees a correction. Both the Queensland and federal governments’ first-homebuyer incentives are continuing to drive the Coast property market. But, land availability to build on remains a light brake on the market. “The land developers like AVID and Stockland just can’t keep up with the demand for the land,” Mr Brial says. And by

the time more land gets released, the interest rates may have moved up. As to how long the low interest rates are going to last, Mr Brial says it’s hard to tell. There has been some recent upwards movement in fixed rates. “With the banks, fixed rates are quite often a function of their balance sheet management in so far as what deposits they have and what longterm thoughts or predictions on what interest rates are going to do,” Mr Brial says. So, shopping around for the best loan package is a must.

And before you leap into a home loan, Mr Brial says, “you don’t want to be fixing an interest rate for five years if you plan on upgrading or relocating in three years. You could end up with some pretty hefty break costs.” Avoiding being blinded by the great offers out in the market is wise, including avoiding using a cashback as an incentive for changing a loan. “You need to be in front of the product or interest rate you are moving to before you take into account the cashback,” Mr Brial warns.

“The land developers like AVID and Stockland just can’t keep up…” SMS Finance director Brenden Brial

Another catch he notes for borrowers is knowing a lender’s current timeframe for processing home loan applications. “There are some banks out there that are upwards of 20 business days before they pick up your application,” he adds.

LIGHTNING’S SEASON CONTINUES OUTSIDE SA BUBBLE The Super Netball competition’s bid to relocate has hit a snag after its Queensland teams were denied entry to South Australia. Last Thursday, the league announced teams would move to an Adelaide hub to finish the season due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks in New South Wales and Victoria. The Lightning and the Queensland Firebirds were due to leave the state on Friday ahead of Round 11. However, a late decision by the South Australian government to extend border restrictions on Queenslanders entering the southern state has prevented Lightning from travelling. As My Weekly Preview went to print, the league was working with the two Queensland sides and the South Australian government to allow the teams to enter the state under strict protocols for future matches. Lightning CEO Danielle Smith says the club is working closely with the league and relevant government departments to find an appropriate solution. “The ever-evolving COVID-19 landscape comes with it a number of complexities that we have to work through in conjunction with the League,” Smith says. “Athlete wellbeing is paramount and as a club that is our first priority in the coming days. We also appreciate the sheer amount of work going on behind the scenes to find an appropriate solution. Head coach Kylee Byrne says the netball community is doing whatever is needed to keep the season up and running and she is aware of the toll it can take on players. “The majority of Lightning players subsidise their netball career with additional work and study, adding to the stress of leaving family and home luxuries with short notice.” myweeklypreview.com.au

A major decade-long deal has been secured for the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast to host the country’s pinnacle surf lifesaving event. The Australian Surf Life Saving Championships, or the Aussies, will be shared by the two regions across eight events between 2023 and 2032, with more than $100 million to be generated towards the state government’s COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan. Tourism and Sport Minister Stirling Hinchliffe says Tourism and Events Queensland has secured the agreement in partnership with Major Events Gold Coast (MEGC) and Sunshine Coast Council. It’s a major coup for the region, with this year’s Aussies on the Sunshine Coast

generating more than 78,000 visitor room nights, and $16 million for local business. The event welcomes more than 7000 competitors from more than 315 clubs. April’s event was split across Maroochydore, Alexandra Headland and Mooloolaba beaches over nine days. It was the first Aussies since 2019 after last year’s event was cancelled. Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson says he is delighted to have certainty that the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships will be returning to Sunshine Coast beaches again after outstanding events in 2016 and 2021. “This new deal reinforces and helps to cement our long-standing reputation as a great location for surf lifesaving events as

well as providing an opportunity for visitors from across the nation to experience everything our region has to offer,” he says. Surf Life Saving Australia President John Baker ESM says he is looking forward to the eight editions of The Aussies in Queensland from 2023 to 2032. “We are deeply grateful to our major sponsors in Tourism and Events Queensland who, without their support, an event the size of The Aussies simply can’t go ahead,” Mr Baker says. “To be able to lock in eight editions of The Aussies, our membership will be looking forward to returning to the sunny beaches of the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast in Queensland again.”


Players and staff from New South Wales NRL teams the Knights, Panthers, Roosters and Sea Eagles will be based on the Sunshine Coast for at least four weeks to escape the COVID-19 situation in Sydney. They arrived last week and will stay

at the Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort at Twin Waters. NRL players and staff will only leave the Sunshine Coast resort for training and games for 14 days under strict rules for their stay in Queensland. The four clubs are part of 12 moved

from New South Wales to Queensland to either the Sunshine or Gold Coasts and Brisbane. NRL chief executive Andrew Abdo says the Twin Waters resort will effectively become a quarantine facility for two weeks. “But they’ll effectively be locked out from the public,” he says. It is understood what the players can do after two weeks will depend on local transmission rates of COVID-19 The NRL will reschedule 23 games originally booked in for New South Wales with some expected to be played at the Sunshine Coast stadium. It is understood the order of games, times or dates will not change. A new draw is expected to be released next week. Every club will be permitted a maximum of 41 players and staff while in Queensland. My Weekly Preview | July 22, 2021 61

Um, so a neutron star gets sucked into a black hole and disappears. This star was 50 per cent larger than the sun and a teaspoon of its matter is estimated to weigh four billion tonnes. We really are quite insignificant in the scheme of things, so enjoy your time as you really are only here for a split second. The sunrises and sunsets at present are absolutely amazing so make sure you get to see as many as you can. You can thank me later. Not many waves around, so grab a bottle of wine and enjoy a sunset.

Off shore as of the July 15 till midnight the August 15 snapper and pearl perch are on a no take, so any fish caught must be released. Still plenty of grassies and tusk fish around on the inner reefs to target. In the Mooloolah we have had a good run of trevally over the last week or so and it doesn’t look like easing up soon. Gar are still in the basin also. In the Maroochy and Caloundra waterways there are some good flathead around and the numbers and size should get better as August and September roll on. Beaches have been great for some tarwhine and dart with Wurtulla getting the better reports. Late afternoon dusk has been the better time.
