NOOSA CHOSEN FOR MAJOR QLD CONFERENCE
WWW. THE EVIL WEB OF ONLINE CRIME
ISOBEL COLEMAN Noosa’s position as the jewel in the crown of the Sunshine Coast’s tourism industry has been confirmed.
Yesterday morning Member for Noosa, Glen Elmes, welcomed an announcement that Noosa would host this year’s DestinationQ conference, the premiere annual Queensland tourism gathering. The announcement was confirmed by Minister for Tourism Jann Stuckey MP at a media conference at Noosa Heads Surf Club. “Noosa has an international reputation for its glorious beach and surrounding natural environment with the necessary supporting infrastructure to make any holiday complete,” Mr Elmes said. “When people come to Noosa, everything they want is on their doorstep, whether they are seeking luxurious accommodation with all the trimmings or a more modest holiday experience.
Cyber bullying, child sex exploitation, scams and fraud, IT theft – these are just some of the illegal, immoral activities that make up the seedy underbelly of the World Wide Web.

“Hastings Street is known around the country for the wonderful variety of dining, shopping and entertainment options it offers. “Of course, there’s also the year-round program of festivals and events like the Festival of Surfing, the Noosa Jazz Festival and the Noosa International Food and Wine Festival which bring in thousands of visitors from across the country and across the world,” he said. “Add to that line-up the Noosa Ultimate Sports Festival, the Noosa Long Weekend Festival and the Noosa Triathlon, and you have the complete tourist destination package. “I could think of no more fitting place to hold a tourism conference, and I look forward to helping the businesses and people of Noosa show tourism operators from across the state how it’s done.” Making the announcement yesterday, Minister Stuckey was joined by Sunshine Coast Destination Ltd CEO Simon Ambrose and Tourism Noosa GM Damien Massingham. Ms Stuckey said the 2014 forum would “build on a lot of the initiatives we have already signed in a partnership with Qld Tourism Industry Council. “This is not a bells and whistles conference. This forum is bloody hard work,” she said. “This is going to be the best forum yet.” Ms Stuckey said the economic benefit of the forum was hard to measure but said there will be “lots and more” income for the region. DestinationQ will be held from September 16/17, hosted jointly at the Sheraton Noosa Resort and Spa and the Outrigger Little Hastings Street Resort and Spa.
Celebrating 14 years in Noosa
Sunshine Beach Surf Club was celebrating this week after being named Best Surf Lifesaving Supporters Club for 2014 for Queensland.
Surf club manager Tim Johnson said the announcement, at the Clubs Queensland Award night in Brisbane on Tuesday, was a complete surprise. “I’d only gone down to it to see what it was all about with a view to going for it next year, and then they called out the club’s name,” he said. The club fought off strong competition
in the final to take the accolade. Mr Johnson said judging covered many aspects, including food, financial performance and governance. “But most of all, I think it comes down to good old fashioned service,” he said. “We have a very unique ambience and culture at Sunshine Beach, we’re all about what a surf club used to be, somewhere to relax, and enjoy good food and entertainment.” Mr Johnson said the award was thanks to all the staff and members. “It’s about the whole experience, from the minute you walk through the door.”

Family fights to stay in Noosa Council CEO accepts the challenge
A Noosaville family is fighting to stay in Australia after the Department of Immigration deemed their son too expensive to keep.
Stephen and Sarah Grandison moved to Noosaville from the UK in February 2011 with their children Ben, 13, Tom, 12, and Katie 9. But despite the fact that Stephen works as a local GP, and the family is heavily involved with the local community, they now face losing it all. Son Tom has intellectual impairment and epilepsy and failed the health assessment component of the family’s permanent visa application. They are now in the process of appealing this decision. The Department of Immigration is questioning the potential cost of Tom’s future health, educational and social needs. “I understand that a government has to have a process in place that takes into account the potential impact of any applicant. The issue we have is with the magnitude of the estimated costs and the fact that these are potential costs only and based on a crude formula,” Stephen said. “We would argue that the actual government cost of caring for Tom is minimal because his care is currently and will continue to be provided by us as a family. We are in a fortunate position that we have the skills, experience and financial stability to be able to care for Tom ourselves with no need to access government support. “As a GP, I look after the sick and vulnerable in the community and regard the
Council CEO Brett De Chastel will rise to the challenge at the next general meeting of the Noosa Residents and Ratepayer Association.
RUNNING OUT OF TIME: The Grandisons with Zeus mark of a civilized society as being one that shows compassion and care to all. We do not anticipate being a burden on the government or community - in fact, we would argue the opposite.” Stephen works as a GP at Noosaville 7 Day Medical Centre and has established himself as a popular, invaluable and hard-working member of the team there. The family has embraced the Sunshine Coast lifestyle and are active members of the community, regularly taking part in swimming, tennis, karate, running and Nippers, or just simply enjoying a walk with Tom’s seizure response dog, Zeus. “I strongly believe that we as a family are currently and will continue to be an asset to this community. Outside of the work I do as a GP, I have raised thousands of dollars for local charity and volun-
teered time and skills to charity events,” Stephen said. “Sarah is an assistant age manager at Noosa SLSC Nippers, supporting a vital local community club and also volunteers her time teaching swimming for the disabled at Nambour Special School where Tom is a student.” The Grandisons are seeking the support of the community to appeal their current visa application. They have until March 30 to gain enough community backing to hopefully waive the health assessment decision. To support them please sign their petition on http://www. ipetitions.com/petition/support-the-grandison-family-for-their-permanent, or write them a letter of support to Stephen.

Palmer’s 68-0 record broken by local firm Local law firm SPM has taken on Clive Palmer – and won!
Mr Palmer, federal leader of the Palmer United Party and Member for Fairfax, held a self-proclaimed 68-0 win-loss record in litigation. Today that record stands at 68-1. SPM agreed to act for Pinehurst Nominees Pty Ltd (“Pinehurst”) in a recent case. An SPM spokesman said Pinehurst was entitled to six free rounds of golf at any one time, including use of a motorised cart. In theory, 12 rounds a day was possible. Dr Dean Andary, a director of Pinehurst, had lawfully conducted a business since the early 1990s, selling these rounds of golf. The Hyatt, which previously managed the golf course and resort now known as the Palmer Coolum Re-
sort, was aware of Dr Andary’s business. In fact, all bookings were made directly through staff at the golf pro shop. Pinehurst was entitled to the free golf rounds until at least 2035. But according to a former employee of the Palmer Coolum Resort, not long after Mr Palmer’s company took over, he was instructed by Mr Palmer personally to inform Dr Andary that his rounds of golf would no longer be honoured. Dr Andary engaged SPM to sue Mr Palmer’s company for damages for breach of contract. Dr Andary won. Mr Palmer’s company was ordered to pay Pinehurst close to $720,000 plus legal costs. “This amount represented the likely income Pinehurst would have continued to earn from its business,” the spokesman said.
Ratepayers President Brian Stockwell said the group had issued the CEO with the challenge, to explain in simple terms how he is going to re-establish a resident-focussed culture in the new Council. “We hear the promising stories in the papers about how the new Council is responding quicker to resident issues, but we would like to hear how Mr De Chastel is going to lead the change for the better to consolidate these early signs of improvement,” Mr Stockwell said. The meeting is open to the public at the Noosa Lions Clubhouse, Girraween Sports Complex, Eenie Creek Rd, at 6.15pm on Thursday, March 20. “While the Mayor and Councillors set the strategic direction it’s the CEO’s job
to get the administration falling in behind. I am sure many residents will be interested to hear how this process is proceeding in the early weeks post de-amalgamation,” Mr Stockwell said. Mr Chastel has also been asked to give an outline of where the budgetary process is and what opportunities there will be for community involvement in this process. “More generally, we would like to hear about his management philosophy in terms of service delivery and what improvements we can expect as ratepayers.” The meeting will include a session where residents and ratepayers who have burning issues they want the group to raise with Council or government can put them to the group for support. “Whether it is the state of the Noosa River Management Plan or a little neighbourhood issue we are keen to hear people’s concerns to see if we can assist in their resolution,” Mr Stockwell said.

Bring back the 80’s, says Clean-Up Joe JIM FAGAN A call to bring back the “Do the Right Thing” anti-litter campaign of the 1980s has been made by a despairing Councillor Joe Jurisevic, co-ordinator of the Clean-Up Australia Day in Noosa.
The campaign is widely regarded as being responsible for a behavioural change in illegal dumping in Australia and, faced with an overwhelming 28.5 tonnes of collected rubbish this year Cr Jurisivec is looking for a repeat. “When we were kids there used to be a national ad - “Do the Right Thing” - but you don’t see that anymore. I’d love to see it brought back. I don’t understand why we’ve lost the message that dumping in the bush is not on. It is a blight against everybody in the community. “There is a throwaway society out there that thinks nobody cares but we do care.” Last week Noosa Today reported how available figures to date showed nine tonnes of
rubbish had been collected from 30 sites by a record 660 volunteers and how Cr Jurisivec believed this figure would double once more illegal dumping spots had been identified. “I was staggered when I was told the numbers had more than tripled,” he said on Monday. Ringtail Creek Forest was a major contributor with 21.6 tonnes. Cr Jurisevic consulted with forestry management and asked the local 4WD club to volunteer in assisting forestry staff and a handful of neighbouring volunteers to tackle the vast quantity of rubbish within the forest boundaries. Using two tip trucks and a small track loader, 4WD utes and trailers and a 10 cubic metre skip, the team removed six truckloads and a full skip which made a huge impact on improving the state and safety of the forest area. There were also several car bodies and large metal items removed by a contractor in the week before the clean-up, so the total could have been far greater. Cr Jurisevic said: “We’ve got to change our
Cleaning up in Ringtail Creek Forest ways,” he said. “This is getting out of control. Council is currently having a waste management strategy review and all this information will be taken on board. There has to be a compromise position somewhere that everyone can live with. “Council law officers have issued fines for minor offences but detecting these people is not an easy thing. There has to be evidence. That’s
where the community has to say this sort of behaviour is not acceptable and if we see it happening we will report it. “But the big stick isn’t the answer. To me the process should be making people understand. By highlighting how bad the situation is I’m hoping people will realise how much rubbish is out there and that will make them sit up and take notice.”
Noosa man avoids jail JOLENE OGLE
An 18-year-old man has narrowly avoided jail after pleading guilty in Noosa Magistrates Court to assaulting two Hastings Street cafe employees while at the venue in October last year.
Police Prosecutor Jamie Baker told the court Samuel Paul Walter Graham became aggressive when his friend, who had previously been banned from the venue, was denied service on October 19, 2013. Sgt Baker said the two victims has just finished work and were enjoying a “knock off” drink when Graham and his friend approached the bar. Graham then head-butted one employee and punched the other in the face, in what Sgt Baker described as an “unprovoked attack”.
Victim Impact Statements (VIS) were provided to the court, but defence lawyer Anna Smith said the injuries described in the reports were “embellished”. The first victim, who had received a punch to the face, said he suffered a displaced jaw that had to be put back into place. The statement also said the attack had impacted the victim’s work life and university studies, as well as cause constant headaches and anxiety. A second Impact Statement, for the man who was head-butted, stated the man sustained a black eye, bruising to the cheekbone, and swelling to the right eye. In addition to the physical injuries, the court heard the man had since suffered with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, and had made two attempts on his own life. Photos of the victim’s injuries, which were taken three
days after the attack, were handed in as evidence, but Ms Smith said the pictures showed only minimal bruising, and that the injuries were in the “low end of the scale in regards to bodily harm”. Ms Smith said there was no evidence to support the alleged injuries, pointing to a lack of hospital reports, university transcripts or proof of a loss of income. Magistrate Bernadette Callaghan said the lack of supporting evidence was “unfortunate” as the injury impact claims could not be fully supported. Sgt Baker said the police had experienced difficulty in obtaining supporting evidence from the two victims. Graham was sentenced to serve nine months probation, complete 120 hours of community service and was banned from the venue for 12 months. No conviction was recorded.

$8 million overhaul for ocean walk, scenic drive Designs for a rebuilt boardwalk around Noosa National Park and tar sealing work on Dr Page’s Rd at Cootharaba to complete a scenic route around the shire are being prepared by Noosa Council civil engineers.
Both projects are estimated at a total cost of $8 million and Mayor Noel Playford wants them “shovel ready” in anticipation of substantial funding from Canberra. “If we can say we are ready to go and that we can call tenders, we are much more likely to get the tick. I firmly believe the Federal Government is going to come out soon with a program for spending millions of dollars on infrastructure and we want to have something ready.”
And even if the funding from the Federal Government isn’t forthcoming, the council is going to do the work anyway. As Mr Playford told Noosa Today on Tuesday, “not because it is nice to have, but because it is essential.” Repair work on the boardwalk from Hastings Street to Little Cove was done a few years ago and according to the Mayor, the rest of the ocean walk is in a “pretty disgraceful state. It will fall apart pretty soon and we have to rip out what’s there and put a new one in. It’s past its used by date. It was put there in 1984, so it’s 30 years old now, and desperately needs replacement.
“The work won’t be done by council labour. It will need specialist workmen.” Mr Playford said he thought the cost would be $3 million plus. “Part of the work will be in conjunction with work on the road around there as it is continually slipping because it’s just on sand. The foundations of the board walk will also be designed to stabilise the road. “The road around the National Park in my lifetime has slipped completely twice and has been been rebuilt at great cost. Part of the cost will be putting in really deep piles to stabilise everything.” He said the other significant job was tar
“The work won’t be done by council labour. It will need specialist workmen.”
Violence “cannot be accepted” JOLENE OGLE A Noosa man has been ordered to complete two year’s probation after pleading guilty to assault in Noosa Magistrates Court.
On September 7, 2013, Joshua Michael Wood, 24, punched ex-work colleague Thomas Cervi in the mouth, dislodging his two front upper teeth by 6mm and fracturing the surrounding bone. The court heard that earlier in the evening, one of Wood’s friends was spoken to inappropriately by the victim, or someone in the
victim’s group of friends who were also out for the night. Wood and his brother followed Mr Cervi and his friends outside, seeking an apology for Wood’s brother’s girlfriend who was offended by the group’s comments. Police Prosecutor Jamie Baker said a “small scuffle ensued”. Wood and his brother then tried to re-enter the venue but security denied them entry. Sgt Baker said Wood then said to security: “If I’m not allowed back in for fighting, then I may as well make it worth it”, before turning and punching the victim in the mouth. Mr Cervi was knocked to the ground and sustained severe damage to his teeth.
Sgt Baker said the damage to Mr Cervi’s teeth could cost up to $10,000, if his teeth die as a result of the punch. Magistrate Bernadette Callaghan labelled Wood’s behaviour “unacceptable” and said “this type of violence cannot be accepted in the community”. When sentencing Wood, Ms Callaghan took into consideration that the attack had occurred out of frustration and said Mr Cervi’s behaviour leading up to the incident was also unacceptable. Wood has been ordered to complete two years probation and no conviction was recorded.
sealing about four kilometres of dirt road on Dr Page’s Road through to Kinmond Creek Road at Cootharaba. “It is an important connecting road and the work will provide a sealed loop right around the rural area, right around the shire. “We’re going to these projects anyway, not immediately but over time. If the Federal Government suddenly says, however, ‘we will give you 75 per cent, we will very quickly find the other couple of million especially at the low rates of today.”
RIGHT ON! NICE ONE! Noosa MP Glen Elmes will host a community forum on electricity pricing, presented by Energy Minister Mark McArdle this Saturday, March 15, 9.30am, at South Pacific Resort, Weyba Rd, Noosaville.
WELL DONE and thank you to all the volunteers, of all ages, who joined Cr Joe Jurisevic to Clean Up Noosa.

Cyber bullying – a silent killer ISOBEL COLEMAN Cyber bullying – it’s become such a common phrase that the true horror of this activity often goes unnoticed, with devastating consequences.
The National Safe Schools Framework defines bullying as repeated verbal, physical, social or psychological behaviour that is harmful and involves the misuse of power by an individual or group towards one or more persons. Cyber bullying means it is being done online. But what that doesn’t tell you is that bullying is now believed to be the cause of around one-quarter of child suicides in Queensland each year. A survey of 20,000 Australian students aged eight to 14, carried out by the Australian Covert Bullying Prevalence Study, revealed that more than a quarter – 27 per cent – of Year 4 to Year 9 students reported being bullied every few weeks or more during a school term. Australian Human Rights Commission president Professor Gillian Triggs said bullying was “endemic” in Australia, which has been ranked worst in the world for social network bullying. What follows is a harrowing description of the impact cyber bullying had on one local family, told by the mother: “We thought we were well versed on technology and we are, but not when it came to how it can be used by kids to torture each other. Our daughter was very bright and confident and we never had any problems with bullying until she reached roughly 11 and then it became a huge problem. It started very quickly after school lap tops where issued, up until this point our daughter had never had her own computer or phone. “First it was anonymous messages using Skype, constantly putting
her down, telling her she was ugly, fat and stupid. Whoever it was said that nobody liked her and that she would be better of killing herself. We didn’t know about any of this, we just noticed she got more and more withdrawn. Finally she told us what was going on and showed us the messages and we were horrified. The language used was really disturbing and it happened both during and outside school hours. Our daughter was really confused and didn’t know who to trust. We went to our school but
“Finally she told us what was going on and showed us the messages and we were horrified. ” they couldn’t do anything about it as the messages where anonymous and eventually they stopped. “As she got older different apps became available and it started again. Tumblr and ASKFM were the main ones used, again because they are anon, vile messages calling her awful names and spreading rumours about her that were not true. Other kids would comment and agree with what was said but some would be supportive of her and tell the bullies they should be ashamed of themselves. The messages became really shocking and we went to the school and the police. Neither could help us because they were all anonymous but even more disturbing was that they both said that they have families in every week complaining about this stuff. Who is providing help to these families? Not schools and not police, we were lost. “Our daughter was either crying or shut in her room. As parents you are meant to be able to protect your family but by not keeping a closer eye on the software our teen was using we had opened the door for this to hap-
pen. “Our daughter now has no applications that allow messages to be sent anonymously. ASKFM, TUMBLR, SKYPE are all out of bounds. As is Snapchat. She uses her laptop in the living area with us and not alone in her room and there is special software installed to stop access to sites not suitable for kids. Our decisions are not always popular with our daughter and she frequently asks to have some of these apps back but we have said no, we are not opening up that door again. “Even as an adult this type of abuse and language would be hard to take but our sons and daughters are being spoken to like that on a daily basis and parents know nothing about it. We are very thankful that we made the changes we did when we did. I know of other families who are struggling with new applications like Snapc h a t , with boys a s young at 13 putting pressure on girls to send images of themselves using Snapchat or their phones. “With the internet it is difficult to control the ages of kids that your child chats to. In some cases girls who are 13 and 14 are being pursued by boys who are 17 or 18. They also end up with “friends” at school all over Noosa Shire so kids from other schools become involved in the bullying online and rumours and images spread from school to school. “The local schools are in the best position to educate parents on how to protect our kids on the Internet. Some homes don’t have a computer until a child brings one home from
STAY SAFE ONLINE It’s not just children who can get bullied online. Today’s incessant and increasing use of social media sites can be fun and informative, but they can also be a breeding ground for trolls.
Here are some tips on keeping yourself safe online: ➲ Make sure your profile is set to private ➲ Only accept friend requests from people you know and trust and learn to block offensive users. ➲ Regularly search for yourself online. This allows you to identify fake profiles/accounts. ➲ Do not join offensive online groups or Like offensive online content. ➲ Do not post inappropriate content online. ➲ Delete unused accounts. ➲ Do not take, accept or forward nude images of anyone aged under 18.
school. There needs to be new rules, and guidelines that schools must follow regarding access to apps and the Internet on school laptops. Online etiquette needs to be a regular part of the school curriculum. The only people who can change any of this going forward is parents and teachers working together to teach the kids early on what is and what is not acceptable then it will become second nature, just like good table manners. “There are school programs but they fall short and do not start early enough or carry on through the school years.”
For our Cyber bullying can be a very upsetting experience but you don’t have to put up with it. It is really important to tell someone, like a parent or trusted adult, and they can help you to get through it. If a friend tells you that they are being cyber bullied, you should encourage them to speak to somebody straight away.

Tewantin Gran dodges online scam JIM FAGAN Tewantin grandmother Pam Morley has had a few anxious days this week, making sure her bank account has not been plundered by online scammers.
And her experience has prompted Microsoft Australia to issue a warning about swindlers trying to trick innocent Australians out of their money. “Don’t be fooled. Microsoft is not cold calling consumers in regards to malfunctioning PCs, viruses or any other matter,” a Sydney spokesman has told Noosa Today. Mrs Morley’s troubles started when she had a phone call from a male who said he was with Microsoft and there was a concern about her computer as it had problems. “I was hav-
JIM FAGAN Scammers are using several well-known brands, including Microsoft, to fool people into believing that something is wrong with their computers.
Pam Morley: “It’s been a learning curve for me.”
ing a bit of trouble with my computer and I was going to ring for technical support anyway. He had an Indian or Sri Lankan accent and said he ‘would go in and fix it all up. “So, foolishly, I gave him my password and he started doing this and that with the little cursor and then told me: ‘You’ve got a problem and also your licence has run out. You need to get a new licence and it will be $247 for one year.’ He then gave me prices for up to 10 years. “I hung up then because I won’t give my credit card number over the phone.
AND HERE’S HOW THE SCAM WORKS
He rang me back straight away and kept ringing and ringing so I pulled the phone socket out of the wall. Although I hadn’t given my credit card details, my concern was once they got into my computer they could have ways of getting into my bank account.” Mrs Morley said she had a new computer password now. “I went to the bank again this morning. I was worried but the bank people say nothing has been touched and don’t think there is anything to worry about now as I have the new password. It’s been a huge learning curve for me.”
Here’s how the Microsoft spokesman in Sydney described the scam to Noosa Today: A cold caller, claiming to be a representative of Microsoft, one of its brands or a third party contracted by Microsoft, tells the victim they are checking into a computer problem, infection or virus that has been detected by Microsoft. They tell the victim they can help and direct them to a website that then allows the scammers to take remote control of the computer. The cold caller then spends some time on the computer trying to demonstrate where the ‘problems’ are and in the process convinces the victim to pay a fee for a service that will fix the computer. The spokesman said: “In reality, there is nothing wrong with their computer but the scammer has tricked the consumer into believing there is a problem and that paying the fee is the best way to get it fixed. Often they will also push the customer to buy a one year computer maintenance subscription. They present themselves in a professional manner and sound genuine. “Don’t be fooled.

Although bullying is not a specific criminal offence in Australian law, criminal and civil laws can apply in terms of, for example, harassment or threatening behaviour, and particularly relevant for cyber bullying – threatening and menacing communications.

40 year celebration for Noosa Lions The Lions Club of Noosa Heads this week celebrated the 40th anniversary of the presentation of its charter by its sponsoring club, the Lions Club of Tewantin Noosa at the RSL Club Tewantin.
Guest of honour was District Governor Delwyn Hallett, a member of the Lions Club of Peregian, another club formed by Tewantin Noosa Lions. Noosa Heads Lions has a proud record of fundraising and assisting those in need locally, nationally and internationally. Noosa Triathlon was the brainchild of the late Dave Power, who enlisted the then Lions president, Joe Gilbert. The Triathlon’s debut was in September 1983 with 150 competitors and 50 teams. The Lions club continued to be the organ-
iser of the event until it was handed over to a sports events’ marketing company. Two significant projects by the club are Lions Park at Noosa Heads, a project undertaken with Council approval in 1992, turning a rubbish dump into a much-used community asset and the Milk Bank at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital. As a result of the work by club members who told other Lions clubs in Queensland northern NSW about the project, $35,428 has been donated to the Women’s Hospital Foundation in the last 12 months. Club members themselves have raised $37,534 for local projects in the same period. The club is looking for new members. Contact Simon Winduss 5474 3667.
Noosa MP Glen Elmes and Acting Assistant Commissioner Neil Reid with the new vehicle
Ambos get a boost JOLENE OGLE Noosa Heads ambulance service received a $215,000 boost this week, with the delivery of a new Mercedes Benz Sprinter van. The 319 model van is fitted with the latest, life-saving technology and will begin operations immediately.
Chic Wilson presented a cheque for $10,000 to Dr Pieter Koorts at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital
Member for Noosa Glen Elmes said the new vehicle would make ambulance response and transport safer and more comfortable for
both patients and paramedics. The new van joins the ever expanding Noosa Heads fleet, which also received a new 4-WD vehicle last year. The Tewantin ambulance station will also get a boost with six new officers due to start in April. Mr Elmes said the new van and extra staff was part of the government’s commitment to ensuring the ambulance service has the best equipment available. “The extra staffing over at Tewantin means the coverage across Noosa, and further afield, is just enhanced to an incredible degree,” he said. Acting Assistant Commissioner
for the Queensland Ambulance Service Neil Reid said the van for the Noosa Heads station and six extra staff for the Tewantin station were a “god send” and vital additions for the service. “From an ambulance point of view, the modernisation of the fleet and modernisation of our equipment is critical for us to remain contemporary in terms of being able to deliver the highest standards of care to the community that we can,” he said. “It’s quite a commitment that’s been put into the northern part of the Sunshine Coast and we’re very happy about that.”
No closure but changes ahead for TAFE JOLENE OGLE Member for Noosa Glen Elmes has confirmed that the Tewantin TAFE campus will not close, but there will be “significant changes”.
Speaking with Noosa Today, Mr Elmes said while legislation was yet to enter the House, he could confirm that the campus would undergo changes that will see it operate under a “very different model”. “The trouble with our TAFE college is that when it was originally
set up, it was set up for arts and so forth. It didn’t concentrate anywhere near enough on training for jobs,” Mr Elmes said. “I’ve been a constant critic of that right from the start, when it opened.” Mr Elmes said he would like to see the Tewantin TAFE campus operate under a model that will train people for jobs and many people in the community were on board with the planned changes. “I’ve had any number of people from the community already come and talk to me about some great ideas about how we can really turn (Tewan-
tin campus) into an outstanding facility,” he said. But not everyone is excited about the changes. One 19-year-old Visual Arts student, who chose to remain anonymous, said she will now have to travel to the Nambour TAFE campus, which would mean an extra hour and a half of travel a day and increased fuel costs. The student also said some staff would lose their jobs as arts-based courses are cancelled or moved. Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay Institute of TAFE institute director Leeza Boyce said student numbers at the Tewantin campus had dropped
from 290 in 2013 to 112 for the 2014 year. Ms Boyce said the amalgamation of the TAFE campuses would allow the organisation to “harness the benefits of each institute to provide customised training and education”. “TAFE is the region’s largest provider of training and continues to go from strength to strength as we work in partnership with the community to deliver the skills the region needs,” she said. Mr Elmes said the decline in student numbers meant the current facilities were a wasted resource. “You can’t have that sort of money sitting there just not being used. So,
what we’ve got to do, as a community, we’ve got to find creative ways now to set it up properly and to get some serious training going on in there and training that suits where we live,” he said. “We’ve got an opportunity to do a lot more in the health field, in training health professionals and nurses. And for young people leaving school. Our greatest export is our kids. If we can do something that keeps them at home a couple of years longer so they can do the training and education they need to further themselves, well that’s good for them and it’s also good for their family.”

Inbox overflow drowning Council JIM FAGAN Noosa Councillors and staff are suffering from email overload. “We’re drowning in them,” Noosa Mayor Noel Playford told Noosa Today on Tuesday. “If this keeps up, we will have to put on another 100 staff!”
Topics range from congratulations to problems. “You don’t want to be rude. You have to respond. We’ve agreed the first person who answers it copies their answer to all the others, otherwise you’ve got people tripping over each other. “I try to have no formal meetings on Friday to try to clear them. This gives me some time at the weekend to think about some serious work,” Mr Playford said. “We are a new organisation and we don’t have anything to handle this in place yet. We have to develop sensible protocols that people can understand. “We’re dealing with it but, frankly, it is not something I thought would be a problem in getting the organisation operating.”“ Mr Playford said that, while the council’s website was an interim one, “if you need something attended to the easiest way is to go on line and just fill in the form because it actually gets addressed faster because it’s definite and it’s in a particular system that operates properly.
“People tend to like sending emails to individual councillors and sometimes they will be addressed to all of them. ”
No doubt the Mayor was stretching staff numbers a bit but it’s a fact that he is receiving up to 100 emails a day and Council CEO Brett de Chastel 120. “People tend to like sending emails to individual councillors and sometimes they will be addressed to all of them. Other times, they will be sent to a mixture of councillors and staff,” the Mayor said. “Often they also go to our council email address and immediately that goes into the system to be recorded. It then it has to be referred to somebody for attention. Meanwhile, you can have six, seven, eight or 10 people getting the same email and wondering who is to deal with it. “By the time you’ve sorted all that out you could have fixed six problems.”

Cooroy local and Practice Manager Kathy Whitmore has spent the past 30 years working in the health services industry and said she’s proud of what Cooroy Family Practice has achieved. “It is becoming really difficult for patients to afford healthcare in Australia, with more and more medical centres scrapping the bulk billing system. We’re really passionate about providing great care no matter what their social back-
ground or financial situation. That’s why we offer bulk billing to each and every patient,” Mrs Whitmore said. This humanitarian approach to healthcare is thanks to Practice owner, Vivianne Dawalibi, who spent two decades working with refugees for the UNHCR in Africa, Asia and Europe before moving to the Sunshine Coast. Her commitment and dedication to serve humanity was rewarded with a Nobel Peace Prize in 1981. “My vision is to create a health hub in Cooroy. We already offer a range of allied health services at our centre including podiatry, occupational therapy and psychology. Patients also have access to a dietician and cardiac technician at our Practice. All of these services are 100 per cent bulk billed,” Ms Dawalibi said. To register interest in attending the barbecue, contact Kathy on 5472 0064.
It’s the only medical centre that offers 100 per cent bulk billing for Medicare patients in the Cooroy and surrounding area and on Friday, March 21, the Cooroy Family Practice will celebrate its fourth anniversary with a free community barbecue at the clinic for patients and the public.

Hundreds benefit from voucher scheme More children than ever are outside in the great outdoors and getting active through the latest round of the Newman Government’s Get Started program, the most successful take-up to date.
Tracey Wyatt with sons Finn and Luca
Get on ya bike and ride! Wednesday, March 19 will be National Ride2School Day and Tracey and Justin Wyatt - owners of local business Bike On - plan to lead by example with their sons Finn and Luca.
For this young family riding their bikes together is a normal part of daily life but they recognise for many Coast families they need some support and encouragement from events like this one. Participating in a Ride2School Day is about making active travel a normal part of the school day. There are many benefits to riding a bike to school, such as:
• Riding or walking to school will reduce traffic around the school, making the school trip faster • Students will arrive at school alert and are more attentive in class • Riding helps develop important life skills, in addition to increasing confidence Finn, five, started Prep at Sunshine Beach State School earlier this year and rides his bike the 6km return journey a few times each week with his family. Luca, three, attends Bambini Childcare in Sunshine Beach and is a regular rider on his parents Tagalong bike. “Noosa is fortunate to have a large
network of cycle paths leading direct to its local schools. Most schools encourage riding and have bike racks located in prominent places within the school gates,” Tracey said. Students can register their participation for TravelSmart Ride2School by visiting www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au prior to the day. Entrants are also eligible to win prizes, including a $500 first prize. Bike On is a local multi-award winning business providing bike hire, tours and education direct to individuals, corporate groups, local councils and schools.
Noosa MP Glen Elmes said Get Started was a key election promise that provides kids who can least afford it with vouchers of up to $150 to help meet club membership and/ or participation fees. More than 400 vouchers have been issued to Noosa kids in this latest round. “Feedback from recipients tells us that almost one-third have not previously played club sport so it is an overwhelming success,” he said. “It is expected to help more than 20,000 children and young people join a sport or recreation. “This round also continues the trend of our other Get in the Game programs which have become more and more
popular with each round. “That is exactly what the Newman LNP Government was striving to achieve through this election commitment; to get more children and young people active. There was not enough focus on this by former governments but the overwhelming popularity shows it was needed and that we are meeting that essential need. “Perhaps of even greater significance is that around 80 per cent of vouchers issued have gone to Health Care or Pensioner Concession Card holders, the members of our community that need our help the most. “We have also received a huge response from clubs this round with more than 3,300 clubs now registered for the program, including at least 70 registrations in the last month,” Mr Elmes said Vouchers must be redeemed at a Get Started registered club by May 15. For more information see www.nprsr.qld.gov. au/funding/getinthegame/getstarted
“More than 3,300 clubs registered for the program.”

Hot rodder Bruce builds his $65,000 dream car JIM FAGAN “Well, I’m not bragging, babe, so don’t put me down, but I’ve got the fastest set of wheels in town”
US pop group The Beach Boys had a hit with Little Deuce Coupe in 1963 and 51 years later, Bruce Dickson, of Noosa Heads, is living the dream. He has his own 1932 Ford Model B Deuce Coupe, a cool V8 side valve engine hot rod which he has just brought to life himself. “I had it out on the street for a bit of a drive last week. I went to Tewantin and back again. It’s the only time it’s been on the road and there were plenty of swivelling heads.” It has taken him six years and $65,000 to restore the gleaming, metallic grey dasher, complete with red upholstery. Perhaps “assemble” is a better word as the car has come from
parts he has ordered from Australian and US hot rod magazines. “You can buy every single part. There are ads for chassis, front ends, brakes, steering, body, roof - everything. “I’ve always been interested in cars, particularly hot rods. I had a workshop in Eumundi Road for some years, Noosa Radios and Air Conditioning, until about 10 years ago. My wife, Julie, and I then moved to Samford and I started collecting parts in 2008. I bought the motor from a guy in Brisbane who was going to use it as a boat anchor. “Side valves have now become very popular and very expensive, about $11,000, so I got it at the right time.” Bruce, 63, and Julie left Samford for Goulbourn where they had bought a hotel and a trailer load of cartons of hot rod parts went with them. “We were working pretty hard in the motel and I needed to relax so I found a bloke who was selling off a 32 chassis and a front end and I

I had mentioned to him I had a 32 and he offered to put it together. “Julie and I had always intended to come back to Noosa so when we moved back here I was able to go to Gympie to help him and keep an eye on progress.” Bruce said his 32 is built as a tradi-

Statistics reveal that 50 per cent of Australian small and medium-sized enterprises have no business continuity plan while only 16 per cent of larger firms are without a plan. Australian research has also shown that every $1 spent on resilience and continuity measures saves $10 during post-interruption recovery – a valuable investment for any business owner. Businesses have a better chance of recovering following a major interruption if they’ve got business continuity plans in place. Volunteering Qld CEO, Perry Hembury, said: “For a severe interruption that affects a large number of businesses, such as a natural disaster, communities as a whole respond more positively and bounce back quickly if their local businesses can reopen and start operating as soon as possible.”
Sarah Fisher, President of CCIQ Noosa, agrees saying: “Resilience only happens when individuals and businesses are prepared for interruptions and can access resources and support so they can get back to work quickly.” Noosa Council and CCIQ Noosa are supporting the delivery of this workshop in Noosa and would like to encourage all local businesses to attend Noosa’s Business Roundtable EXTEND event where they can learn, and share information about being better prepared and better connected to help them bounce back. Participants will take away local emergency contact lists and get help starting their own business continuity plan that will help to keep a business up and running through interruptions of any kind: power failures, IT system crashes, supply chain problems and more, including natural disasters. The workshop will take place on Tuesday, March 25, 5.30pm to 7pm, at The J, 60 Noosa Drive, Noosa Junction. RSVP by Friday, March 21, to Sarah Fisher on 0403 564 897 or firstname.lastname@example.org

BUSINESS BUZZ Noosa is currently bucking the trend with many new businesses opening in the Shire. TRIPLE CELEBRATION Cassidy & White Vintage and Modern Interior Design, Kart Space Contemporary Art Gallery and Outside Noosa, landscape design and construction contractors, hosted a triple celebration to announce the launch of their creative collaboration, The Design Co-op, in Mary Street, Noosaville. For Cassidy & White it was an official opening, having built up their impressive floor display over recent weeks. Meanwhile Kart Space has recently relocated to the larger gallery space in Mary Street from Peregian Beach, where it had attracted a loyal following of lovers of modern Australian art. For Outside Noosa, the occasion was also a celebration of their 11th year in business, and 10 years operating from the Mary Street premises. “The concept behind The Design Co-op is for individual, creative businesses that complement each other to work under the one roof. This not only allows for the day-to-day exchange of creative ideas and an easy referral network, but also provides clients with a ‘one stop shop’ for all things related to a quality house and garden,” said David Cassidy. Co-owner/manager of Outside Noosa, John Scomparin agreed, saying: “A particular focus of The Design Co-op is to support local artisans and businesses and this is very evident in the visual displays. We also feel it’s important for local businesses to inspire and support each other and we are feeling very positive about the potential of our collaborative effort.” NOW EXPANDING Meanwhile, expanding and looking to take on more staff, is Jet Convert, a local company specializing in Software as a Service (SAAS). Aligned with the game-changing Xero accounting software, Jet Convert provides an automated data migration service for Accountants and Bookkeepers to move their MYOB clients to Xero. Unlike other manual data entry based services, Jet Convert uses inhouse developed software to provide a file that contains full financial history. Having experienced significant success and growth in the software conversion services market, Jet Convert is now looking to employ additional software programmers and analysts for further expansion and new product development. “Even though software development can be done at a cheaper rate by outsourcing overseas, we find that the return on investment can often be better when we use local developers. We have experienced considerable productivity gains through improved communication and interaction with the rest of the team based in Noosa,” said business owner and founder Alexander Kohl.

Valentine’s Day may now be over but Noosa will continue to share the love with the area’s developing wedding season set to be soon kicking off.
Noosa is renowned for its beautiful weddings, with the market moving away from the traditional Saturday spring time wedding to a year-long calendar of weddings booked in from Fridays through to Sundays, and even some mid-week. As such, the Noosa region’s wedding market is continuously growing, with more and more couples wanting to host their special day in a timeless and iconic Noosa setting. A recent poll taken by some of Noosa’s wedding venues showed 2013 was a solid year for the Noosa wedding market. Venues held an average of 40-50 receptions – equating to 2,000 to 3,000
people per venue. And 2014 is set to be even stronger. One venue reported 42 weddings last year, and is already holding 60 bookings for 2014. As Noosa gears up for the start of this year’s wedding season, it is a great time to reflect upon the positive economic impact this visitor group has on the whole community. Those who are bought to this region for a wedding event, bring with them a huge flow on effect across the area, spending largely at local business such as accommodation, transportation, restaurants, florists, day spas and more. This flow on effect is often more wide spread by wedding guests, who are more than likely to make a short holiday out of a wedding attendance here at Noosa. There is a great chance that these visitors will not only make the most out of restaurants and accommodation while they are here, but will also partake in several Noosa tourist activities. These guests are more than likely to visit again or generate referral to the region. So next time you see a wedding, why not provide a warm hello and welcome to Noosa!

New leaders at St Andrew’s
Raising stress-proof kids That’s the title of a new book by local teacher Shelley Davidow and, on Saturday, March 15, there’s a chance to meet the author at Annie’s Books on Peregian at 3pm.
A teacher at the Steiner School in Doonan, Shelley is also a trained facilitator in restorative practice, and has published more than 35 books. She has taught students aged from five to 80 and runs workshops nationally and internationally on the impact and management of stress at home, in the workplace and in the classroom. Shelley said Raising Stress-Proof Kids offers “an eye-opening view on how the unhealthy and unnecessary stresses of our educational systems, as well as outdated perspectives on parenting, affect our children. It offers practical advice on how we can significantly and positively impact the lives of our children.”
St Andrew’s inducted and congratulated student leaders at a lovely ceremony this week. All student leaders from primary, middle years, music, the arts, sport and the Year 12 prefects and captains took the pledge of leadership and committed to “put the interests of others above their own, to ensure their actions and attitudes are an example to others and to aim for the highest standards with themselves”. Principal Chris Ivey enjoyed formally inducting the students into their positions of responsibility, saying he was sure that all leaders would work to the best of their ability within their roles in the College.
Preparing for NAPLAN The National Assessment ProgramLiteracy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) has measured performance of Year 3, 5, 7 & 9 students since 2008. The tests provide information to those interested in the education standards being achieved at schools around Australia.
However, according to education consultant John Clarke, the greatest value of the tests is the motivation provided for students on a regular basis as they move through primary and secondary education towards the Year 12

WILL NOT SURVIVE In response to the letter ‘Shame, Shame, Shame’ by Annabelle Nance (NT Feb 27). I note that no-one of that name is a member of the Cooroy RSL & Citizens Memorial Bowls Club. It is unfortunate that Annabelle Nance has portrayed a scenario of untruths about the management of the club. The truth is that in 2005, the previous bowls club management recognised that the venue, deeply in debt, was in danger of closure. Consequently the RSL Services & Citizens Memorial Club Inc was approached with a view to merge the two venues to keep bowls in Cooroy. The Board of the RSL Services & Citizens Memorial Club agreed to accept the debt of the bowls club. A merger was effected with a new constitution to govern the two venues. The accounting system is
common to a lot of industries and the results are audited regularly which process provides a true performance across the whole operation. The club’s reports have always been available on request for members to peruse. Should any member apply to the club’s manager, the member would be advised that the Bank required the proceeds of the land sale to be allocated to the debt relating to the Opal St loan. It is true that the Maple St premises and the Memorial Hall are in need of updating, however this has not been possible due to funding the accumulating loss at the Opal St venue. The Maple St venue has suffered due to inability to provide upgrades to the operation while serious outstanding maintenance issues to the hall facilities have been neglected. It was recognised from the 2005/06 financial results of the merged club that great difficulty would be experienced to be viable financially due to the poor performance of the Opal St site. Despite continuing valiant efforts by the Board, the results remained negative. The belief that bowls is currently trading well is not substantiated by the yearly financial statements. The Board having made the decision to dispose of the non-performing site after recurring poor financial results each year has earned the support of the thinking members of the club. The financial reality is that when sold the sale value of the bowls venue will barely cover the accumulated losses. This is in direct conflict with the assertion by Annabelle Nance that the RSL would acquire the site at no cost. The reference to the RSL does not define the entity. Reference to the influence of the sub-branch borders on slander. Fact is that the RSL Sub-Branch is not, and has not been, involved in any way in the decisions made by the club Board. Suffice to say that all sub-branch members are also members of the club and have every right to voice their opinions in-
dependently of the sub-branch. The challenge for the new 2014 club Board is to make more hard decisions about finance for there is the real chance that the whole operation will not survive another year.

WE LOVE NOOSA We’d like to congratulate Noosa’s residents, Noosa Today and Noosa Council for fighting and winning their long battle to overthrow Peter Beattie’s sneak attack on Noosa’s independence. Well done. We have been holidaying in Noosa for decades, dating back to the caravan park at Sunrise Beach. We always promised ourselves that one day we would come and live here. We have, after 30 years, recently been able to realise our dream, though we are not living here full-time as yet. We love Noosa passionately, always have and always will. I’d also like to dispute a recent statement by J Lobb about the lack of transparency of Mayor Playford. Whatever the de-amalgamation cost, it was whole lot less than predicted by one Andrew Fraser, and 100 per cent worth it. I have next to no respect for anyone in government these days and I am sure that most people would agree with me on that issue. But Mayor Playford seems to be differ-
ent, an “old fashioned” honest and straight kind of politician one could even say. I make it a point to read the Noosa Today every week to catch up on things. I think his big city counterparts could re-learn a lot from him particularly my own local state member. I emailed Mayor Playford about my first rates notice, querying the extra $200 we have to pay as socalled ‘non residents’ because it’s not our principal place of residence yet, even though we are not renting our home out and are not making money from it. Yet on the other hand we are asked to pay all those extra charges that ‘residents’ pay, like the tourism levy and public transport levy etc. I mentioned also that we take our rubbish back to Brisbane with us, yet are still charged the full rate for bin collection. We use less council resources but are asked to pay more. I suggested that this is hardly fair, though most councils seem to hold their hands out, just because they can. Mayor Playford answered promptly, (at 6.30am!) He did not send me three pages of waffle which is the norm and usually doesn’t say a thing. He answered simply, politely and in a very friendly and sincere manner. He didn’t promise me that this charge would be dropped, but did say that perhaps some of the rate categories would be looked at in the near future, as he realised that
some needed adjusting. To us he seems like the now very rare politician deserving of respect and support. If we could swap our voting rights to Noosa, we would do so in a heartbeat.

THANK YOU Marie and I would like to take this opportunity in thanking, firstly, the staff at Noosa Hospital when Jack was admitted recently. A special mention to Dr Carita Shield, whose quick actions saved our son, Jack, from what could have been a far more serious outcome. Secondly, a huge thank you to the Nambour Infectious Diseases Unit where Jack was transferred to on the same day. The doctors and nurses, and there were many, were continually checking and discussing Jack’s progress with us and we can’t speak highly enough of them. After many blood tests and a spinal fluid tap, Jack was eventually diagnosed with meningococcal meningitis, which we know can have disastrous outcomes on victims, sometimes fatal. We had some frightening moments in those few days. Jack is now home and on the road to recovery but still has a way to go. Again, we would like to express our extreme gratitude to all those mentioned above.

SECURITY OF WATER Erin Brockovich has offered Noosa some timely advice about protecting its water supplies. West Cooroy residents currently face the prospect of their drinking water being contaminated by pollutants from a proposed industrial development. Because of the site’s location and physical characteristics, we believe there are no practical management or infrastructure measures that could be implemented to prevent the off-site spread of the wastes and emissions generated by the annual production of up to 1.5 million meat chickens. Unfortunately, we have a system of notification, assessment and appeal processes that favour developers, and often leaves the community and the environment paying the costs. Clean drinking water is a necessity. Security of water supply should not be up for negotiation when developers bring their proposals to the bargaining table.

Dendrobium speciosum NOOSA DISTRICT ORCHID & FOLIAGE SOCIETY Noosa Shire has a large variety of native orchids growing naturally. However, many species – including the once abundant Dendrobium speciosum (King Orchid) – are disappearing as their habitat is cleared for farming and development. Society President John Green encourages people to buy plants from nurseries as numbers in the wild have been heavily depleted. He believes that sadly, whereas other countries adore our native orchids, we take them for granted and don’t value them.

There’s still plenty of entertainment happening down at the beach, as part of this year’s Cricks Noosa Festival of Surfing.
Cooroy Chamber of Commerce president Danielle Taylor said the event was an achievement for the local community and a great addition to the local area. Cooroy Originals is a free
family event funded through donations and raffle ticket sales, and supported by Noosa Today, Cooroy Hotel, Cooroy Car Parts and Cooroy Rag. As well as the awesome lineup of musicians, there will be food stalls, free face painting and a great community atmosphere. Catch the action on Sunday, March 23, from 1pm, in the Apex Park, Cooroy.

In a competitive environment, it is also good to see Noosa Arts Theatre putting on a play that takes us into the lives, thoughts and feelings of women who were affected by the Vietnam War. Linking the various scenes together with songs and actual photographs of the era both entertains and gives authenticity to the play. Of the talented cast, director Jenni McCaul said: “I am so incredibly proud - they are doing an amazing job bringing these strong women to life. They were ordinary Australian women coping with situations they never thought possible. I hope you come and see it. I promise you a very moving show performed by talented actors.”

After launching his new novel, Beach Spinifex, at home on the Sunshine Coast, anthropologist, writer and surfer Ken Fisher will now take his book on the road.
For the next three months Fisher hopes to visit every beach town and city between Noosa and Bell’s to find his readers. Inspired by our local beaches, 50 years of surfing and his work with indigenous Australians who were taken from their parents, the author has created Beach Spinifex - a powerful tale of loss and longing, love and joy. From the ancient Moon Creek to an idyllic 1960s holiday beach squat and into the new millennium, it is the story of those enchanted by the spirit of the sea. Beach Spinifex tells of the story of 10-year-
old Ku who is left to finish the mythical story of Old Snake, the creator of the dunes and wallum. As she struggles to imagine a perfect ending that will bring Banks home again, she learns of his bitter loneliness, the ghosts that haunt him and the gentle beauty in his mastery of the sea and dunes. “The book is a tribute to the beauty of our coast, its bays, beaches and headlands. My story is for the morning walker, the evening fishermen, the sailors, surfers, swimmers and groms. And for their mum’s - so they’ll understand,” Fisher said. The author will promote the book around the Sunshine Coast before packing up the campervan and, with wife Linda and old dog, Patch, heading down the coast road. Beach Spinifex is available on-line at www. beachspinifex.com.au and selected bookstores.

Armchair Travel U3A Noosa’s Arm Chair Travel for Friday, March 21, will present Dr Ken Lynn with his UK Bucket List Trip.
The Sunshine Coast Legacy Group, in conjunction with local big band SCREAM, will bring a big serving of swing, jazz and blues to the Sunshine Coast this month.
SCREAM Big Band (Sunshine Coast Retired ex Armed Forces Musicians) will help stage the 2014 ANZAC Day concert on Saturday, March 29. Comprised mainly of ex-services professional musicians, SCREAM has been performing to sell-out shows around the Coast for years, including the Noosa Jazz Festival. Their music includes swing favourites such Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin and Michael Buble, as well as Ella Fitzgerald with a little bit of contemporary big band music thrown in. The concert will also feature the band’s very own Yasmin Raja. Yasmin has performed at an impressive list of venues,
including the prestigious Intercontinental Hotel in Singapore, the Royal Bintang Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, and the Brisbane Jazz Club, and is a highly regarded vocal and piano tutor. Yasmin will be wowing the stage with a Natalie Cole-style feature, along with SCREAM’s very own Tanya McFadyen and Alan Winter. All profits from the event will go to Legacy local support activities which support over 1700 widows and families here on the Coast. You can help by attending the ANZAC Day Concert at Maroochydore High School. Doors open at 1.30pm, concert starts at 2pm. Tickets are $20 for adults, $40 for families (2+2) and $10 for children under 16. Afternoon tea included. Tickets are available through Maroochy High School, Legacy Laural Clubs and Legacy Care Groups, SCREAM’s website at www.screambigband.net or calling 5443 2779.

His photos will evoke old memories or even suggest new ones. Everyone is welcome. Start time is 1.45pm and afternoon tea will be served. Phone 5440 5500. Noosa U3A House is at 64 Poinciana Ave, Tewantin.

travel today Download your destination Noosa’s world class tourist attractions are now just a click away following the launch of a free Queensland smartphone application.
VIC – the Visitor Information centre app – gives tourists a range of information tailored to their location, covering accommodation, dining, events and activities. The app is an initiative of Tour-
ism and Events Queensland in partnership with the Queensland Information Centres Association. It can be downloaded from any location and based on where you are, it will display the three nearest Visitor Information Centres. Among the fun features is Find Your Shine. By clicking on pictures to depict the type of location and holiday you prefer – eg beach, rainforest – the app immediately loads
its best suggestions. Another great feature is the 360 Degree Tour, where you can pick a location, like Sunshine Beach, and enjoy a stunning webcam presentation. Queensland Information Centres Association President Nicky Young said the app was an exciting addition to the promotion of the accredited Visitor Information Centre network in Queensland.
“Visitor information centres provide such a fantastic service to millions of visitors throughout Queensland each year. This app will hopefully see even more tourists go to visitor information centres across the state,” Ms Young said. For more information on the VIC app visit www.queensland.com/vics

Dog day afternoon
Calming your canine during storm season Katrina Boyd of Kats 4 Dogs believes human interaction with dogs during thunderstorms is what creates the problem. “Think back to the first time your dog appeared to get scared of the sound of thunder or heavy rain. What did you do? If you nurtured your dog and tried to comfort him by picking him up or lying down cuddling him you at that moment reinforced your dog’s fear. You basically rewarded her insecurity and the message she got from you was that she is right to feel fearful about thunder. So the next
time you got a thunderstorm she displayed the same behaviour and you reinforced it again. By now you have created a pattern and your dog learns that this is the state of mind he should go to during storms. By now you, too, are getting stressed knowing that there is a storm approaching and even before it hits the dog has started to shut down just like the owner,” she said. “Before long your dog is getting scared of other loud noises or things like the wind. Because you have nurtured the fear in storms, you also nurture the fear with anything else that your dog becomes fearful of. Before you know it your dog is a nervous wreck.”
Katrina said the problem can be fixed but, as with any anxiety-related problem, it can take some time. “With any dog behaviour they require the right guidance from someone they trust and respect in order to undo the anxiety. So it’s key that the humans involved change the way they think about the storm. It’s important that your dog senses confidence in you and that you are there to help. You need to switch of your emotions and focus on being a leader. With these cases and any other behavioural problem it’s important you seek professional help.”
“Before you know it your dog is a nervous wreck.”

Decoding has become the new buzz word for trainers and is a very
simple method of teaching people how to relate to their dog and pick up on its signals and doggie language. Understanding your dog’s behaviour and working with it, is the key to training, Suzanne said. Decoding will help you to understand why your dog does what he does, and training will become positive and fun for both of you. Suzanne will explain The Decoding Method and share her 10 top training tips.
Snake warning for pets Noosa Today reader Laine Harry of Tewantin shared this frightening story.
“Pet owners, please be careful outside. We have had a python in our backyard for a few days and our pets were too frightened to go outside. So we decided to remove it from under the Bali house and keep our pets inside. Then we couldn’t see it anywhere. Hubby was tidying up and the dog went outside to explore. Suddenly we heard this yelp. Hub-
by turned round to see the snake biting Mogo’s head, and wrapping his body around our dog. Adrenalin kicked in. Hubby pulled the snake’s jaws open as I unwound the snake. The snake eventually let go and it was off to the vets. The dog was very lucky. After a clean-up, a needle and four snake teeth being taken out of his head, he was okay. We moved the snake to the park. “Everyone was traumatised, it was horrible, so please take extra care when outside.”

Never tried Yum-Cha because you’re not sure what it is? You’re missing out! It’s delicious and just perfect when you don’t feel like a huge meal.
The Cantonese Chinese term yam cha or yum cha refers to the tradition of morning tea in Cantonese cuisine exemplified by the traditional tea houses of Guangzhou (Canton). Due to the prevalence of Cantonese cuisine outside China, the Cantonese yum cha tradition can be found in many parts of the world. Yum cha is also used to refer to morning or afternoon teas in other Chinese cultural traditions, even though such meals have different native names. It comprises a selection of small dishes, usually steamed or fried, savoury and sweet. Embassy XO offer an impressive Yum-Cha menu every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon, featuring such delicious dishes as Spicy corn cakes, BBQ duck buns, Kimchi and pork dumplings, Wagyu dumplings, Prawn sumai and Spanner crab dumplings, with rice and noodle dishes. Buy by the plate or book the Yum-Cha Banquet for $32 per person. Phone 5455 4460.

Toffeed Strawberries INGREDIENTS 2 x 250g punnets strawberries 20 short skewers 2 cups caster sugar ½ cup water pinch of cream of tartar few drops pillar box red food dye METHOD
Wash strawberries and skewer with the short skewers or icy pole stick through the calyx (green end). Set aside. Combine sugar and water in a heavy based
pan, and stir over a low heat until sugar dissolves completely. Stir in cream of tartar. Bring to the boil and add food dye. Reduce heat to low, and simmer toffee for around 20 minutes, or until it reaches hard crack stage. (Use a toffee thermometer - 150°C). Allow to stop bubbling. Carefully dip each strawberry into the toffee, and allow to set on baking paper until hard. Use remaining toffee to create a toffee serving disc or extra toffee shards. Once set, serve immediately.
Preheat oven to fan 165°C. Slice strawberries and place in a small saucepan with tangelo juice and zest. Bring to the boil, simmer for 2-3 minutes then remove from the heat. Using a stick blender, puree the strawberry mix. Whisk the sugar and eggs in a mixer until pale and creamy, then fold in the almond meal and cooled strawberry mix. Pour into a lined 22cm loose bottomed cake pan, and bake for 1 hour or until golden and set. Allow to cool slightly in the pan. Run a knife around to loosen the edges, then invert onto a serving plate. Combine remaining juice and caster sugar in a small saucepan, cook until sugar dissolves and syrup thickens. Add zest and remaining sliced strawberries, cook 2 minutes and cool slightly. Arrange cooked strawberries on the top of the cake, then drizzle over syrup. Serve cake warm with ice cream.

Sunny Coasters bucking the trend South East Queensland adults are tipping the scales below average, with new statistics showing the region’s adult obesity rates are up to 32 per cent lower than the overall Queensland rate.
The State Government has released findings from the Self-reported health status 2011-12, categorised by local government area. The report found adult obesity rates in Brisbane were 20 per cent lower, Gold Coast 16 per cent lower and Sunshine Coast 32 per cent lower than in Queensland overall. Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift said more needed to be done to help locals pursue healthier lifestyles. “While South East Queensland reports significantly lower levels of adult obesity in some regions, more needs to be done to curb this growing epidemic,” she said. “Being overweight or obese is linked to
On the Sunshine Coast, around 53 per cent of the adult population are overweight or obese.
a range of chronic health problems, including some cancers. While obesity is caused by a range of complex factors, we know that eating a healthy diet and limiting sugary, fatty and salty food and drinks is important to maintain a healthy weight. “Regional and remote areas of Queensland tend to have higher rates of obesity, putting locals at a far higher risk of ill health and premature death than their city counterparts. “We’re urging all South East Queenslanders to take a look at their lifestyle, and seek support to eat better, move more and help reduce these alarming obesity statistics.”
On the Sunshine Coast, around 53 per cent of the adult population are overweight or obese. About 57 per cent of adults engage in sufficient physical activity, but only about 8.5 per cent eat the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables for a healthy diet. Queensland has the highest rate of adult obesity in Australia – 10 per cent higher than the national rate. Ms Clift said at least one-third of all cancers are preventable through lifestyle adjustments, including eating a healthy diet, being physically active, reducing alcohol intake and maintaining a healthy weight. Queenslanders are invited to join the QUEST to live a healthier life at quest.org. au.

NRL WEEKLY REVIEW PETER MCGREGOR
What a first round of the NRL last weekend! I hope you didn’t follow my tips because if you did, you would be down in the dumps just like me!
The first round was full of surprises with many an unfancied team not only beating but thumping their more favoured opposition. I should have been more aware of the first round curse, as it always happens. No, not me, I had to over analyse the whole thing and now look at the mess I am in! The teams that shone for me were the Rabbitohs, Broncos, Cowboys and St George. Melbourne never gave up and came back from the dead, while the Eels showed promise and the Panthers will worry quite a few teams. The new rule changes look good and will make the game faster and, more importantly, safer for the players. All in all, a very good round of entertaining rugby league. Now for redemption! The first game for Round 2 will see the Manly Sea Eagles tackle a very talented Rabbitohs in Gosford on Friday night. How will Manly recover after their devastating loss to the comeback kids, the Melbourne Storm, last Saturday night? The Sea Eagles have plenty of injuries to star
YOUNG BLOOD: Noosa Pirates U12s in action at the weekend. PICTURE NICK WEBSTER players and will be up against a very committed Rabbitohs. Rabbitohs by 10. The big game of the weekend will be the local derby between the Brisbane Broncos and the North Queensland Cowboys at Suncorp Stadium, also on Friday night. The Broncos shocked the Bulldogs last Friday night and showed plenty of commitment and determination and, if they play with that same style, they will give the Cowboys a real run for their money. The Cowboys also came from behind to record a very good win over a competitive Raiders and if Thurston can continue that form I see the Cowboys just prevailing. Cowboys by 4. On Saturday night a disappointing Warriors host a rejuve-
nated Dragons outfit. I was impressed with the Dragons against the Tigers and if they can maintain that form they just might send the more fancied Warriors to consecutive defeats, which will not impress their coach, Matt Elliott. At home I just can’t pass on the Warriors. Warriors by 10. In Melbourne the Storm will host the much improved Panthers. Cooper Cronk is back in the team and I just can’t see the Panthers upsetting the Storm who last week showed real resolve in their comeback win over Manly. Storm by 6. The final Saturday game will be a beauty with the Roosters and Eels clashing at the SSS. This will be the test for the Eels. Can they hold their own against
the Premiers or was the win last Sunday against the Warriors no more than a fluke? I reckon the Eels will hold their own but the experience of the Roosters will get them over the line. Roosters by 4 in a close and entertaining game. On Sunday the Titans host the Tigers and should win against their more inexperienced opposition. The Tigers showed plenty of heart last Sunday but fundamental errors and plenty of penalties did not help their cause. The Titans need to win and win well at home to regain the confidence of their supporters and for that reason, Titans by 10. The other Sunday game will see the Knights tackle the Raiders in Newcastle. The Knights are struggling with injuries while the Raiders showed plenty against the Cowboys. A hard one to predict, especially with the Knights at home, but I like the Raiders and will tip an upset. Raiders by 8. The Monday night game will see the Bulldogs and Sharks battle at the Olympic Stadium. The Dogs were upset by the Broncos last week and I am sure coach Des Hasler would have had nightmares all week over that loss. The Sharks could be in for a tough night but don’t underestimate them. I’ll give the Bulldogs another chance here but no confidence. Bulldogs by 8. Well, they are the tips for this weekend. If you have any sense you should probably go against me but I reckon I have got it just right! Until next week . . . ‘Remember, Rugby League football, the greatest game of all.’

Lifesavers shine at Qld Championships BETWEEN THE FLAGS RON LANE
We take pride in the people who patrol our beaches and compete for our three local surf clubs. And rightly so. After watching the performances of our lifesavers at the Queensland Championships last weekend at on the Gold Coast, I came away with the feeling that the safety of those who come to bathe at our
beaches is indeed in good hands.
In a stand-out performance, the Noosa masters finished in second place in the State, a mere seven points behind the winners, Northcliffe. Not only do these people compete for Noosa but also many serve as patrol captains on Main Beach. Add to this the steadying influence that some master competitors have on the younger members in the day-to-day running of the club and the benefits of a good master’s team are indeed many. On Saturday and Sunday it was the turn of the young guns from Sunshine and Noosa to strut their stuff. Despite fielding a team of just 12 members
Sunshine came home with three gold medals and a bronze. When you consider the gold came from U17 and U15 surf teams and the bronze was in the surf ski event, a comparatively new event for Sunshine, it was not only good but very promising for the future. Warick Redwood, veteran administrator at Sunshine, said, “This is the first time we have really looked at ski events and with the appointment of ski coach Paul Gilmore, the result is very encouraging for the future.” An outstanding moment for the team was when Sunshine iron man Zac Barwicki won the U15 boys title and also became the recipient of the coveted Matt Barclay Memorial Trophy - without a doubt one of the most
sought after awards on the program. For the Noosa club their medal tally saw them finish in fourth place overall and, out of 35 clubs, this has been their best performance ever. Once again the most pleasing aspect was that the medals came from all disciplines - beach events, surf craft and swimming. This reflects on the organization and coaching structure that exists within the ranks of the Surf Sports Department. Noosa’s main strength at present lays within the ranks of the U15, 17 and 19 competitors, with a few starting to make waves in the open section. There were many outstanding performances but two in particular stood out - Jordan Mercer and Cooper Wil-
liams. Jordan’s victory in the open iron woman and Cooper’s amazing effort to finish with four medals for the day was the talk of the beach. After being wiped out in big surf at the Coolum Nutri-Grain Ironwoman finals last month, Jordan’s performance at Kirra on Sunday has shown us all that this little lady is all heart, determination and guts, the true markings of a real champion. Despite his small size Cooper, efficiently known to his mates as Super Cooper, has shown us all that at the ripe old age of 14, the old saying regarding the size of fight in the dog is very true. The performance of our young from Sunshine and Noosa was second-to-none.
Resting up after an awesome summer season
Massive week for our Noosa nippers Last weekend at Noosa Main Beach saw the last regular Nipper Sunday of the season. This was the 25th Sunday that up to 480 Nippers have
participated and, with winter sports around the corner, there will be no rest for these dedicated parents.
With our beach setup crew headed by Zig, retiring for winter after 5am starts each Sunday and over 48 hours of volunteer work
Go Noosa Pirates! What a great day of local action from Noosa Pirates last weekend! By all accounts it was the biggest day at Pirate Park for a few years!
The day’s activities included the Sam Richter Tribute Match and Nick Webster was there to capture the action on film.
on average each week across the season, we must thank those that make Noosa Nippers arguably the benchmark for Nipper programs across Queensland – and that’s Surf Lifesaving Qld’s words. The Nippers have been presented with their season medal-
lions, with every one introduced to the crowd as Nipper leaders Amber Sinclair and Angus Luhrs put these highly impressive medallions around every Nipper’s neck. We also saw the presentation of the Nipper state uniform. While Nippers may be over,

those highly stylish state Nippers which, with family members, total 130, will head down to North Kirra for the U11-U14 Nipper State Titles. This three-day carnival is the culmination of the carnival season for these dedicated Nippers and will be the last Nipper carnival for our U14s as they make their way into cadets. A big thank you must go out to the Tindal family at Bakers Delight, the Wright family from Westpac, the Binet family from McDonalds and the St Baker family from ERM Energy as our major sponsors. All these locals provide a huge amount of support for this great Nipper program. Next Wednesday will see our annual Nipper Awards Presentation night at The J Noosa. This is the night where we recognise individual achievements from within our U8 to U14 age groups. And on March 23, as an end of season treat, 170 Noosa Nippers will take over Wet’n’Wild!

Hard work pays off for Cougars NATHAN MCLEAN It’s been a while since the Mighty Cougars have played in the finals but this season all three senior grades have made the semis. Let’s hope our winning ways continue for a couple of more games.

Young rowers get serious
Our results are a true indication of the hard work and fantastic camaraderie that this club has displayed this year. Cooroy-Eumundi A Grade were unable to contain Yandina’s strong batting line-up on day 2 of the final home and away match completed on Saturday. In reply to the Cougars 139, Yandina amassed 9-243 before declaring. Best of the Cooroy bowlers were paceman Mark Wood with 4-38 and captain Mick Carman with 4-53. Batting a second time, Cooroy limped to 7-70 at stumps with opener Aaron Williams battling stoically for 24 off 81 balls. Next week the semi-finals begin with the Cougars travelling to Coolum where the winner will progress to the grand final the following weekend. B Grade had a con-
DI PILLING This team of junior rowers from Noosa Yacht & Rowing Club competed in their first crew event at a Gold Coast regatta recently.
The quad crew placed fourth in their race against other seasoned young rowers. The fifth member of the team, Katie McFadden, also rowed well in her doubles event with partner Ariana. It was a fantastic experience for them all and now they can’t wait to compete again. Their coaches, Linda Grams and Julia Trotter, are very proud of their enormous efforts. It has meant a real commitment to early mornings on the water and lots of practice, drills and exercises. The result was this wonderful display of skill and teamwork. NYRC rowers learn their skills from accredited coaches on Noosa River three times a week. To find out more or join, phone 5448 0329.

Losing the toss Kenilworth elected to bat and were dismissed for a very low score of 67, bowling honours going to Kaleb Hamilton 3/14, Pat Paterson 3/25, and Cooroy’s old stager Phil Giblet taking 3/28. Some solid batting by all of the batsmen saw a club record (not the best but in the top 10) post 6/339 with top scorer Luke Finzel 85, Pat Paterson 53, John
Hope 51, Kaleb Hamilton 48 and Max Paterson scoring 47 not out. Kenilworth tried to survive the day but fell short - chief destroyer was Jake the snake Scanlan taking 3/28, all other bowlers took single wickets. A big game next week with B Grade hosting the semi-final at home against Yandina, from 10am on the Sel Bonnel oval. Cooroy C Grade boys won a hard fought battle against Buderim on Saturday. Resuming on 4 for 44, Buderim needed another 130 to avoid a 1st innings defeat.
But, mainly due to some excellent bowling from Jason Hall (5 for 31), they were all out for 131, giving 1st innings honours to Cooroy. In an attempt to force an outright win, Cooroy hit a quick 137 off 21 overs before declaring, to be 180 runs in front. Jason Hall continued his excellent match to end on 36 not out. Despite some good Cooroy bowling, Buderim held out to be 102 for 5 at the close, with Hall taking another 2 wickets, and Harvey Hope 2 for 13 off 6 overs. The boys deserve their semi-final place.

Class act from Drescher MICHAEL SOBEY It was a disappointing end on the park for the Tewantin Noosa Thunder.
TNT U16s in action. PICTURES TESSA MAPSTONE
Grand final victory for TNT CHRISTOPHER BENNETT Tewantin Noosa Cricket Club U16B finished off a fantastic year at the weekend by winning the premiership at Read Park, the home of the Thunder. The team lost only one game during the 10 round home and away season and confirmed that dominance against Glasshouse on Sunday.
Glasshouse won the toss and sent TNT into bat under threatening skies that promised to help their fast bowlers. Tristan Griffin, 45, and Zach Lange, 23, scoring at 7 runs an over, got the home team off to a flying. The loss of the first wicket heralded a middle order slump as the team lost four wickets for 40 runs, but sensible batting from Nicholas Bennett, 64, and aggressive innings from Adam Waldron, 31, and Coen Brough, 21, helped the team reach 8/234 off their 55 overs. Batting second Glasshouse were never able to keep up with the required run rate as tight bowling and excellent fielding choked the batsmen of scoring opportunities. When the long and patient opening
stand was broken in the 23rd over they had only 68 runs on the board with their best batsman back in the shed. From then Glasshouse regularly lost wickets and, despite a late flurry of runs from the lower order, were well short at 9/191 at the close. TNT spin bowler Jacob Richardson was the star of the attack with 3/33.
He was well supported by the rest of the bowlers with Coen Brough and Nicholas Bennett also capturing two wickets. This grand final victory was a fitting end for the six TNT players who will move to senior player ranks next season. The TNT U12B and U14B teams will be playing their grand finals next weekend.

First grade were away to Glasshouse and were sent in on difficult looking pitch. Wickets fell regularly and only 118 was able to be posted. However, the home side fared similarly and were in trouble early. Great pressure in the field saw the home side in real trouble and were 9/91. Unfortunately a few difficult chances weren’t held and Glasshouse sneaked past the total and then took the long handle, riding their luck and established a 90 run lead before the last wicket could be taken. The second innings fared a little better but again the Thunder were bowled out for an under par 167. The home side made short work of this to secure an outright win. 2nd grade were at home also to Glasshouse. The visitors won the toss and batted. It was a much improved effort in the field and they were restricted to 155. Captain Brendan Aufderheide had the best figures with 4/37. In response at stumps on the first day we were 2/30. Day 2 however, started disastrously and the final 7 wickets fell for only 37 more runs. A quick flurry by Glasshouse saw a declaration at 6/64 and an ambitious target of 159 to win off 30 overs. And the boys gave it a really good shake but couldn’t quite hang on being
bowled out 30 runs short with 5 overs left in the day. 3rds were at home to second-placed Caboolture. Surprisingly we were sent in to bat after losing the toss, a decision they soon regretted as Reece Langan (70) and Phil Drescher (78) being the main contributors to a 249 run total. Special mention to Jai Baker and Jesse Russell putting on 26 runs for the last wicket despite a barrage of bouncers. In response the visitors were in real trouble at stumps at 4/78. Day 2 started in perfect fashion for the Thunder with 2 wickets in the first 3 overs and the balance being picked up in the first hour for a 132 run lead. Luke Anstey picked up 2 wickets, Phil Drescher 2 and a run out and Reece Langan 2 to go with his 5 catches. Batting again Phil Drescher again showed his class smashing 131 runs to complete a brilliant match for him. It was a good win to end the season on. 5th grade were up against it against Palmwoods, the runaway ladder leaders. The home side batted first and posted a reasonable 212 run total. Pick of the bowlers was Morgan Horn and Charlie Chaplin with 3 each and Bronson Horn with 2. The first day finished at 2/43 and a reasonable chance of chasing them down. Day 2 started well with Gary Madsen (52) and John Norden (44) continuing where they left off. Unfortunately there wasn’t much resistance after them and the tail was wrapped up for 160. Palmwoods had no intention of looking for an outright result and batted out the day, which unfortunately meant us missing out on the top 4 and a finals spot.
