WHEN JONATHON MET CHARLIE

‘Sardine City’ - court victory for Council JIM FAGAN Noosa Council has had a massive victory in the Planning and Environment Court against a developer claiming nearly $53 million dollars in town planning compensation.

JIM FAGAN The bonding was instant. Smart Pup retriever Charlie came into Jonathon Tardent’s home at Sunrise Beach on Tuesday and immediately went up to the 15-year-old, nuzzled him and on command from trainer, Clare Synnet, stuck out a paw. They went outside to the garden and Jonathon called him. Charlie didn’t move and looked at Clare who said, “Jonathon, crouch down, put your head in your hands and make crying sounds.” Jonathon did and Charlie immediately rushed over to comfort him. It was a time for smiles for Glenda Boyce and Ruth Betts from Frangipani Dreams, contributor of $10,000 to make the gift of Charlie possible, and Smart Pups director, Patricia McAlister, and Claire who brought the pup to Jonathon’s home. For Jonathon’s Mum, Rebecca (pictured), it was a time for a few tears as she told Noosa Today how Jonathon was at the higher functioning end of autism. “He is so innocent and vulnerable. The Smart Pup concept will give him an independence he doesn’t have.” Smart Pups Sunshine Coast specialises in providing specially trained dogs like 12-month-old Charlie for children and young people with autism, epilepsy or other special needs to give them independence and confidence.

In 1997 developer RV Thompson (Qld) Pty Ltd applied to develop 40 hectares of land at Settler’s Cove. This was to include 1287 units which led the then Mayor, Noel Playford, to describe the application as “Sardine City.” It was later reduced to 426 units and 33 house lots. On Monday, at the council’s general committee meeting, CEO Brett de Chastel reported how, following the adoption of Noosa’s 1997 Strategic Plan, a number of developers had taken court action claiming “injurious affection” that is, the value of their properties had been affected by changes to the Planning Scheme. “By 2001 the total value of these multiple claims amounted to $94 million. The Thompson claim was the largest. It was lodged in 2000 and was originally $34.62 million but this subsequently increased to $52.904 million.” Mr de Chastel said the former Noosa Council had fought the various compensation claims with significant success and by the time of amalgamation the Thompson claim was the only one outstanding. “It has been effectively running for 14 years making it one of the longest running and most significant (in dollar terms) Noosa Council has ever had.”

DV most difficult part of policing May is domestic and family violence month and while the Government is busy encouraging the community to not let “concern become regret” in their latest campaign, local police officers are battling the endemic issue first hand. Speaking with Noosa Today, Noosa Heads officer in charge Senior Sergeant Steve McReight said domestic violence (DV) is a daily battle for local officers.

“Domestic violence is the most difficult part of policing,” Snr Sgt McReight said. “When attending (DV) calls, officers need to deal with families and emotional, violent scenes. “Officers have been injured and some killed while attending these scenes.” But Snr Sgt McReight said policing and assisting DV victims and perpetrators remains a top priority for both the Queensland Police Service and local police. “Every morning I conduct an audit of every domestic violence complaint and report that has been filed,” Snr Sgt McReight said.

“At this office, we have a DV coordinator who also audits the complaints and reports to make sure everything is done in line with legislation.” Snr Sgt McReight said new legislation that better reflects a changing community, along with ongoing training, referral systems and local organisations, are all helping in the battle to stop domestic violence in our community. “Prevention is best,” he said. “Some perpetrators don’t understand what they’re doing is wrong, some don’t understand the court process, or where to get help. “It’s not always violence that is

considered DV. It can include intimidation, threats, stalking.” Snr Sgt McReight said while DV incidents are still prevalent in the local community, he has seen a “big improvement, with much more support and education for everyone involved in DV”. “I always say prevention is best and we’re working with the community to help solve this issue.” To get help for yourself or someone you know who is experiencing a domestic violence situation, make the call to DVConnect Womensline on 1800 811 811 or Mensline on 1800 600 636.

New plan for Main Beach businesses? A new policy for commercial use activities on community land will be considered by Noosa Council on Thursday night. Co-ordinator of property and land management, Clint Irwin, told the Council’s general committee on Monday night that currently there were 14 activities undertaken by 11 permit holders on Noosa Main Beach or close by. The unique characteristics of Noosa Shire and Main Beach provided opportunities to create profitable, niche, lifestyle businesses. In comparison to commercial premises, overheads were generally lower. Profitability, however, depended on the weather and the activity undertaken. Total fees payable to Council from the permit holders were about $25,000 a year but the administration costs to Council totalled $40,000 a

year, resulting in a subsidy of $15,000 a year. He proposed that fees increase for those businesses that have more capacity to contribute and that the minimum fee be set at $1,000.

He proposed that fees increase for those businesses that have more capacity. He also recommended the maximum permit term be three years and that permit holders only be granted one permit each to “reduce the likelihood of a monopolistic permit environment.” Commenting on the report, Mayor Noel Playford said one thing he didn’t want to see was

Businesses such as paddle boarding schools are under the spotlight

people “putting in to these sort of things and getting it and then just employing someone else so that they are not involved in the business themselves. “What Clint is saying here is that if you want to run a business, then you get one permit. You don’t get three or four. That gives everyone an opportunity.”

NBN tower for Boreen Point A recommendation that a NBN Co fixed wireless network tower be approved for 153 Lake Flat Road, Boreen Point has been recommended to Noosa Council by its

general committee. On January 29 this year a 40m high tower (1.5km away from the new tower) was approved and the applicant was asked to consider other alternative sites on the same property. This has been done

following community consultation. The new 31m tower will be sited and partially obscured among existing vegetation. It will service 630 properties within the Cootharaba and Boreen Point localities.

Lunch & Dinner Wed-Sun

There has never been a better excuse to get together for a long lunch with friends than SPM Law’s charity lunch this Friday, from 1pm. River Cottage Restaurant, Noosaville, will kindly host the charity lunch and offer a delicious twocourse meal for $100 per person. All profits from the event will be donated to local charity Sunshine Butterflies, to help improve the lives of children with disabilities by providing families with support. SPM Law partner and event organiser Michael Sobey said the charity lunch was a great chance for locals to indulge in a long lunch while helping a local charity. “We love to support the community and local charities, plus this offers a great chance for networking,” he said. Mr Sobey said anyone is welcome to attend the lunch and encouraged locals to gather a group of friends to make a day of it. SPM Law is even helping kick off festivities with a bar tab for pre-lunch drinks. There are still seats available. Simply phone SPM Law on 5440 4800 or email Nicole Turner at nturner@spmlaw.com.au to book your table.

Anzac mateship still vital today, says ex RAAF Air Marshall

Local photographer Jeremiah James took this great shot at the dawn service in Tewantin

JIM FAGAN

Former chief of the Royal Australian Air Force, Air Marshall Geoff Shepherd AO believes mateship is still the “essential glue” in the Australian style of military operations. Speaking at Anzac Day Observances at Verrierdale and Eumundi last Friday he said the overall pervading impression he had of the original ANZACs was one of the importance, the absolute essentiality, of mateship. “Life is very focused and simplified on operations, then and now - life and death are the over-riding concerns. In reality, soldiers fight for their mates, for their Company, for their BattalAir Marshall Geoff ion. Shepherd AO Sail-

in all the other places, was thinking of geostrategic issues. “None of our bomber crews in a Lancaster en-route to the Ruhr or our sailors in the gun turret of HMAS Perth were consumed by thoughts of grand strategy. None of our heroes in Afghanistan were heartened by thoughts that they were the practical realisation of Chapter 5 of the latest Defence White Paper. “Mateship kept alive many Australians on the Thai-Burma railway and in the hellish coal mines of Imperial Japan, when around them soldiers of other nations perished alone.”

NEWS 5 “No matter how much we think we know these stories we must never forget to retell them - that is our solemn duty on this our ANZAC Day. Today does not belong to the Government, it belongs to us, the people, and is held in sacred trust by us on behalf of those who fought and died and for those who still suffer in peace. Only in autocracies do military commemorations take place by government pronouncement. In democracies they endure through popular acclaim. “Today is not about political and national ambition or grand strategy, it is not about detailed analysis of battle campaigns and it is not about Generals, Admirals nor, unfortunately, Air Marshals - it is about the common soldier, sailor and airman. It is now much wider than a focus purely on Gallipoli and WW1 in France - it encompasses all those who have served in all campaigns over the long and continuing course of our essential maintenance of our freedom and of all which we hold dear as a nation. “As we move towards the Centenary of ANZAC next year and as the differing and revisionist viewpoints and opinions on our past military involvements are published, as some already are, we should hold fast to the essential elements of the ANZAC legacy, the honour we pay and the respect we owe to the individual soldier, sailor and airman - they are the reason we are here today.”

“The ANZAC spirit is as relevant and essential now and in the future as it was on the slopes of Gallipoli or in the cockpit of a Kittyhawk over Milne Bay or in the gun deck of HMAS Canberra running the Slot off Guadalcanal.” He said it was important to retell the stories of each year of Gallipoli and most importantly how Australia as a nation came then of age and how an Australian ethos was formed. It was important, also, to retell the story of the sacrifices of the trench war in France following Gallipoli and of the many conflicts that followed: the Second World War, Korea, Malaya, the Indonesian Confrontation, Viet Nam and more recently Bougainville, East Timor, the Solomon Islands, Iraq and Afghanistan. “We retell these stories because if we don’t they will be forgotten, as will be the memories of the brave servicemen and servicewomen who died creating their narrative. We retell the stories as our way of remembering and honouring their sacrifice, their humanity, and their courage and steadfastness in horrific situations in a world often gone mad.

Air Marshall Shepherd said Australians had traditionally honoured the concept of the ANZAC spirit, “a loose amalgam of the ‘good’ personal attributes we all know: honour, integrity, steadfastness, mateship, honesty, humour, courage and the like. “It is not something that was invented on the harsh shores of Gallipoli - that was its sternest test for a young nation and its ‘coming out’ as it were, but it is part of us as Australians. It is manifested in the best aspects of our society. It can be readily seen in our young servicemen and servicewomen, just as it can be in other service organisations: the police, ambulance service and firefighters to name a few. “Overwhelmingly though, our servicemen and servicewomen have been volunteers, they are drawn from our society and they ultimately return to it - a process of reinforcement of the best attributes of our society, and a clear explanation of why our conscripts in Viet Nam, despite an overwhelming national condemnation of our involvement, rose magnificently to the challenge.

Wishes from Moy still coming true JIM FAGAN

Share with mum this Mother’s Day

Frangipani Dreams’ gift of Smart Pup Charlie to the Tardent family of Sunrise Beach is the latest in a series of wishes granted by the group since founder Moy Sweetman died 12 months ago.

Moy Sweetman, a true inspiration

where it wanted to “wrap up the charity by June 30 after nearly 10 years. We’ve had some wonderful, hard-working volunteers who have helped pack and deliver thousands of Christmas hampers over the last decade. “We also want to thank all those who have supported Frangipani Dreams with donations, goods and fundraising. Their ongoing support made Moy’s dreams come true. “One of Moy’s favourite

sayings was ‘Making a difference’ and whatever she did was to make a difference in people’s lives. Whatever we’ve done since Moy passed away that little phrase is still ringing in our ears. “Moy touched the lives of so many people in so many ways. She was just an amazing bundle of energy and enthusiasm who seemed to find inspiration in adversity. Through that she was an inspiration for a lot of people.�

When Jonathon met Charlie FROM PAGE 1 It is a charity and, according to Patricia McAlister, the dogs are donated to selected families. “They help reduce stress levels and relieve the social isolation special needs children often feel. We do all our own fundraising and we ask the families to also help raise money. We have three families in Noosa waiting to get their dogs.� Ruth and Glenda first heard about Smart Pups through a Frangipani Dreams’ member who knew of a family who wanted to acquire a dog. They went to Buderim to see a training session with Smart Pups and “it was so inspiring we wanted to help a family. “Patricia had a look through their list of families, who were desperately in need of a dog,

and that’s how we came up with Rebecca and Jonathon. “As it turns out Moy did know about Rebecca and her circumstances back when Jonathon was in primary school. We only found this out last week, actually on Thursday, the day of the anniversary of Moy’s death. When we made the decision to help Rebecca, we didn’t know she knew about Moy or Frangipani Dreams.� Charlie needs further training and it will be another six weeks before he comes back to Rebecca and Jonathon. “I can’t wait,� said Jonathon. “He’s just the most perfect dog.� Is he looking forward to taking him for walks? He grinned, “Oh yes, and I’m going to teach him snakes and ladders.� “Better watch the dice,� said trainer Clare. “He’ll chew it.�

The committee has not been idle in the months since Moy passed away. It has granted close to $56,000 in wishes, including $10,000 to Frankee Lee, the little girl with a rare hearing defect, for an operation, as well as gifts to cancer sufferers, people with rare medical conditions, funeral costs on two occasions, holidays on the Gold Coast and assistance with medical travel for the terminally ill. A local dance company has also been given funds to purchase musical/dance equipment and travel expenses for competitors. “In late 2009 Frangipani Dreams got in touch with the Ian Thorpe Foundation and started a project at Yarrabah, an aboriginal community in North Queensland. This year, when school started, we donated $20,000 to Ian Thorpe’s Fountain for Youth to provide school books and materials for a remote indigenous township, 350km north east of Alice Springs, called Utopia,� committee member Ruth Betts said.

Developer’s bid: Council asked to say no A request for approval of another two years for a development permit for a material change of use for a 38-unit complex at Attunga Heights at Noosa Heads has been recommended for refusal by Council development planner, Jack Lewis. Applicant David Neate took over the site three years ago after the previous landowner went into receivership. In his report Mr Lewis gives three reasons for refusal. The development is contrary to the Noosa Plan’s overall and specific outcomes for Noosa Heads; the community was publicly notified in 2004 and, given the time lapsed, is unlikely to be aware of the approval given it dates back to2004; and if the development like this was made today, it would likely receive submissions objecting to it. Mr Lewis said in July 2005 Council approved in part an application for 30 multiple dwelling units and an accommodation building of 12 units, mainly because of the limited scale of the buildings and the proposed landscape and vegetation buffering would ensure the development would not be visually intrusive. Council also said the geotechnical report concluded there would be a low to moderate risk of slope and more than 70 per cent of the site would remain as undeveloped open space. On December 1, 2005, Desley Boyle, then Minister for Local Government and Planning, called in the application as the development involved matters of state interest, including a wildlife corridor through the site and the movement of koalas. On March 6, 2006, the Minister issued a notice for a material change of use for 26 units and an accommodation building of 12 units.

‘It was time to draw the line,’ says Mayor JIM FAGAN

Noosa’s long running battle to keep out developers like RV Thompson (Qld) Pty Ltd has cost multi millions of dollars but Mayor Noel Playford believes that “if you want the sort of Noosa that most of us idealise and desire then you have to draw the line.” Speaking to Noosa Today on Monday after the council’s general committee meeting, a clearly happy Mayor said the Thompson claim was initiated because of changes to the Noosa Strategic Plan but “it is interesting how over the years a number of members of the community have made incredible statements about this issue. “The Council has always put it in the an-

nual report as a contingent liability and despite the fact of one after the other the claims being knocked over by the court, one of them, Kettering Pty Ltd, even went to the High Court, people still kept making outrageous claims about ‘Noosa Council’s broke because it owes all this money.’ “What we did has been upheld in every one of the court cases and in some cases actually new laws by the courts have been the result of it. There are councils throughout Queensland who have been sitting watching all this because there is always a fine line with ‘injurious affection’ laws as to how far can you go in trying to determine your future in a land planning sense without triggering the provisions of ‘injurious affection.’ Asked about cost of court action, Mr Playford said it was always an educated or calculated decision as to how much it would

cost. “Certainly, it has cost multi millions, my guess would be $10 million. It’s difficult to say how much the Thompson case cost because it goes back a long way. Certainly in the millions of dollars.” Had there been any sleepless nights? Mr Playford said, “No, there’s no point. You make your decision that you think it’s the right one for the future and you just hope the courts see it that way, how they view it in terms of the law. In retrospect now, you can say it was the right decision. “We knew when this started that we may have to back our planning laws with the courage of our convictions, and that’s what we did. There will be times in the future when the council has to fight hard again to retain our balanced view of planning. The alternative is ‘anything goes’ and that’s not what our community wants.”

You won’t find another town as drenched in history as Yandina. First settled in the 1850s, much of the original township still stands thanks to the preservation of Stevens Street and historic homesteads. While Yandina can be considered a blink-and-you-miss-it town, the small settlement is definitely worth stopping for, given its natural beauty, intriguing history and the delicious

The hotel dates back to 1889 and was relocated to its current location using rollers and a bullock team in 1891, when the railway came through town. Today, you can sit on the hotel’s front verandah in the afternoon and enjoy the glorious sound of the

lorikeets settling for the h night. i ht Further down the road you will find the Anglican Church, built initially as a community church and opened in 1880. The quaint church, now the All Saints Anglican Church, is the oldest on the Sunshine Coast. Yandina also boats many historic homesteads, such as the privately owned Koongalba homestead. Built in 1894, Koongalba housed John Anthony Low and his wife Louisa Ann

venture, cooking demonstrations and lots of goodies, including ginger icecream, the Ginger Factory is a mustsee when visiting Yandina. Bypassed by the Bruce Highway, Yandina is located approximately 40 minutes from Noosa and just over an hour’s drive north of Brisbane. Accommodation is available, if you fancy staying a little longer to explore the natural beauty of this unique town.

Bookfest makes a difference

The annual Bookfest Noosa is here again this May to support three local charities - Hear and Say Centre Sunshine Coast, Noosa Yacht & Rowing Club’s (NYRC) Youth Sail Access Program and Guide Dogs Queensland.

The Hear and Say Centre and NYRC work tirelessly everyday to make a difference in the lives of local children. Guide Dogs Queensland supports blind and vision impaired Queenslanders to live a mobile and independent life. It costs $30,000 to breed, train and place every Guide Dog.

Hear and Say Centre Regional Development and Fundraising Coordinator Karen von Homeyer said the funds raised at last year’s event were vital. “Last year’s proceeds assisted one of the local children to graduate from the program and enter mainstream schooling at the same level of communication as her hearing peers. What greater gift could there be,” she said. “Without the support of the local community this service would not be available on the Sunshine Coast and families would be

forced to travel to Brisbane for weekly therapy.” The NYRC Youth Sail Access program is a community-based disability program, allowing disabled children to sail and experience the wonder of the open sea. Paul Blundell, Sailing Manager said funds raised from this event will help provide sailing experiences for local groups including, House with No Steps, Camp Quality, Endeavour Foundation and many more.

It costs $30,000 to breed, train and place every Guide Dog.

“Programs like Access could not exist without the support of organisations like Rotary. We have recently named one of our newer boats after the Rotary Noosa Daybreak Club to show our appreciation,” he said. The festivities take place daily between 9am-5pm from Friday, May 2 to Sunday, May 4 at the Bicentennial Hall, Sunshine Beach (off Sunshine Beach Road). There will be thousands of books to browse and buy in a family fun atmosphere with drink stalls, BBQs, raffles and you may even get to meet a Guide Dog-in-training.

Local survivor to help others Battling breast cancer can be a scary time in a woman’s life, but local volunteers are working hard to ensure everyone has access to information and support throughout their journey. Local musician, Tracey Combes, was amongst a select group of breast cancer survivors who attended intense training in Melbourne last week to become a community liaison with Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA). The BCNA training program provided a forum for women to

share their stories, strengthen their networks and work towards better outcomes for women living with breast cancer. The program is designed to strengthen the ability of the women to use their own experiences to make a difference in the lives of women battling cancer. Tracey said she is looking forward to promoting and informing local woman about the free resources available to them from the BCNA, which help women through their breast cancer journey. For more information on services available visit www.bcna.org.au

JANE’S SECRET TO SUCCESS Jane Meredith may not be a name that is immediately recognised but Secrets is definitely recognisable as one of Noosa’s most brilliant business success stories.  In 2000 co-founders Jane Meredith and Dietmar Gorlich took a brave step and launched their first jewellery store in Hastings Street, introducing revolutionary diamond simulants – a product that has since embraced Australia and the rest of the world. Jane will be guest speaker at the next CCIQ Noosa (Chamber of Commerce) meeting, to be held on Tuesday, May 13, at the Noosa Convention & Exhibition Centre on Hilton Terrace, Noosaville. The meeting is open to all members, visitors and guests. You can register your attendance on the CCIQ Noosa Website under the Events tab, or by phoning Ray Bostleman on 0410 692 323. Entry is free for members, $20 for non-members. There will be a special meeting for members only at 5.30pm with the general meeting starting at 6pm. Jane will give an insight into how dreams are attainable, sharing her energetic, focused, funfilled path towards her own business goals. This is an event that should not be missed for anyone in business. Jane is a true leading example of how Noosa businesses can flourish – on the world stage.

Inspirational speech from long-time local

Students enjoy NAPLAN seminars

“I love the motivation and encouragement John gives me. He has helped me revise English and Maths, but has also taught me new concepts and includes very interesting videos,” said Euan Buxton, a Year 9 student at St Andrews College, Peregian Springs. “It is a completely different environment from school in the corporate rooms. John Clarke’s NAPLAN sessions have helped me a lot.” John, a member of the Australian Tutoring Association, said he will continue working with students in NAPLAN years over the next couple of weeks, but reminds parents that if they have children in Year 2, 4, 6 or 8, now is the time to start preparing for NAPLAN next year. For more information call 0432 893 280.

the words ‘Freedom, Human Rights, Democracy and Equality’. He not only mentioned how his family had defended these ideals but, also, how “many former Tewantin State School students have gone forward in their lives to defend those principles of life”. Mr Clary paid special tribute to other Tewantin State School families, including the Brough, Tedford, Roper, Moffat, Woods, Stjernqvist, Harlow and

McDonald families, who had sent their sons to battle in order to uphold the four principles mentioned above. “Those four cherished principles give all of us the right to be an individual. It allows you freedom of speech; freedom of religion; political freedom of choice; freedom to choose a career; to play sport; to prosper and learn; freedom to achieve and question governments and world decision-makers,” he said.

The guest speaker was Trevor Clarey, who gave an inspirational speech about the school. Sixty years ago Mr Clarey was a pupil at Tewantin State School and 90 years ago his father was educated there, too. His father’s four brothers and two sisters, as well as Mr Clarey’s 12 brothers and sisters and his own two sons were also educated at the school. One of those sons, Dallas, was the 10th member of the Clarey clan to have represented his country through the armed services. The underlining theme of M. Clarey’s speech were

There were sessions for Year 3, 5, 7 and 9 students, who will be sitting for the National Assessment Program-Literacy and Numeracy in a couple of weeks. This followed months of individual tutoring to close “learning gaps” with these students and build their confidence for the tests, which measure performance at schools all over Australia. “Learning gaps have been referred to by Geoff Masters, head of the Australian Council for Educational Research, as a major challenge to lifting student performance in this country,” John said. “I use unique approaches which students really enjoy.” “It has been fun and cool learning with John,” said Izaak Browne, a Year 3 student at Noosa Christian College, Cooroy. “I learnt lots of things this week with John Clarke so I know what to do in the real NAPLAN test,” added Ruby Peacock, who is in Year 7 at Noosaville State School.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH Is it only me, or is anyone else fed up with the constant stream of letters on climate change taking up so much space on these pages? As if any meaningful discussion on the science of such a complex issue could take place in community newspaper. The problem stems, of course, from our posse of local climate science deniers. They obviously take advantage of the knowledge that no matter what farcical conspiracy theory or unscientific myth they are recycling at the moment, there’s a good chance their letters will be printed. Many of the rest of us in the community feel that this misinformation can’t go unchallenged. And so it goes on and on. Trouble is, these contrarian gentlemen have allowed their analysis of the science to be skewed by their political ideology. They latch on to any extreme notion that confirms their existing beliefs. They are entitled to their opinions, but that’s all they are – simplistic, biased opinions, unsupported by any evidence, mostly gleaned from climate-denier blogs. They are completely at odds with real-world science. Why should they continually be thrust into the faces of the rest of us? Nobel laureate in Economics Paul Krugman put it this way last week in the New York Times: “So is the climate threat solved? Well, it should be. The science is solid; the technology is there; the economics look far more favorable than anyone expected. All that stands in the way of saving the planet is a combination of ignorance, prejudice and vested interests. What could go wrong? Oh, wait.” Enough is enough. Surely there are more sensible and relevant issues to wrestle with in the local media.

GRAHAM COGHILL Marcus Beach

SO LUCKY It takes a weekend like the one we have just had to appreciate the benefits of Noosa. Also let’s be fair to the entire Sunshine Coast, how lucky are we? People come from all over the world to enjoy what we take for granted and sometimes complain about it.

E WRIGHT Sunrise Beach

WONDER WHY All our ‘good friends’ in the Asian regions must be wondering why our PM is photographed sitting in the pilot’s seat giving a “thumbs up” to the $12 billion cost of the new fighter jets, while the pensioners, school kids, disabled etc, must be wondering if they have the long-term strength to support these machines.

MARGARET WILKIE Peregian Beach SUCCESS STORY Re letter to editor on 17/4. Mel White seems to resent having to pay rates for environment community groups such as Noosa Landcare «hanging off the public purse strings». Here are some facts: The Noosa (and broader Sunshine Coast region) area is listed as a national biodiversity hotspot with a large proportion (50 per cent) of remnant bushland still remaining, much more than the rest of South East Qld. Noosa River has the highest water quality rating of any SE Qld waterway. These attributes didn’t just happen, but are in large part testimony to 20-plus years of effective and nationally recognised partnerships between local environment community groups, the broader community, and the three tiers of government. Priority works have included addressing the threat of invasive species, protecting riparian areas, re-establishing corridors linking areas of remnant bushland, developing sustainable rural industries such as farm forestry, and environmental education activities. Quite apart from achieving these tangible on-ground environmental outcomes, the community groups that Mel White refers to deliver social outcomes by providing opportunities for volunteers to perform meaningful work and by reducing social isolation in rural areas. With regard to employing people, many of the people employed by Noosa Landcare came through Federal and State government-funded traineeship programs as school leavers and have gone on to develop successful careers in the environmental restoration industry. These employees probably have families, shop in the local area, and contribute to society. I doubt if many of

these employees are actually funded by Council rates, as due to cutbacks in Federal Govt funding most environmental community groups have had to develop fee for service/product income streams to remain financially viable. I for one am happy to continue contributing to this success story through my rates, which would amount to a couple of dollars a year at most and given the co-contribution from our volunteers and environmental and social outcomes achieved provides a very good return on investment.

DAVE BURROWS Cooran

NOT UNIQUE In her letter Jo Ball twice refers to Noosa as “unique” because it has been awarded a Biosphere Reserve status. Jo should learn what the word actually means. To be unique is to be one of which there is only one. However there are many Biosphere Reserves, both here in Australia and abroad. They number in the many hundreds. Even Gympie is in a Biosphere Reserve. There’s nothing very unique about Gympie. And if the Sunshine Coast becomes a Biosphere, will Jo claim that makes Maroochydore unique?

G HAMILTON Pomona JOIN THE ACTION The evidence is in. The scientists have done their job. The findings are clear. Climate change is real and it is happening now. There is no “debate”, despite the desperate claims of the climate deniers. We are currently on track for 4 degrees warming which would result in catastrophic impact around the globe, including Australia. It is now a moral question as to what we collectively do about it. I know, “moral” is such an old-fashioned word, and often unfashionable in these current times. However, how else can you describe the decisions we take now that will affect the lives and environment of generations to come and already born but not yet capable of taking action for themselves? Bishop Desmond Tutu has likened the need for climate action to that of the anti-apartheid campaign. “People of conscience need to break their ties

with corporations financing the injustice of climate change. We can, for instance, boycott events, sports teams and media programming sponsored by fossil-fuel energy companies,” he said. You can be part of this action. On May 3 www.350.org is organising a National Divestment Day for banks investing in coal and gas. Since 2008, the “Big 4” banks - Westpac, Commonwealth, NAB and ANZ have loaned almost $19 billion to new coal and gas projects in Australia. These projects threaten our land, water, health, the climate and precious ecosystems like the Great Barrier Reef. If you want to make a difference, go to http://act.350.org/signup/ banksdivest_aus_may2014/ You will not be alone. Big business is doing its bit. Leading global companies including Royal Dutch Shell, Unilever, BT and Adidas have called on governments to cap cumulative carbon emissions below 1 trillion metric tonnes, in a bid to contain rising temperatures. Over 70 companies from across five continents – accounting for a combined turnover of $90 billion – have signed the ‘Trillion Tonne Communiqué’, representing a growing call from businesses for governments to tackle climate change. Over to you now.

VIVIEN GRIFFIN Marcus Beach

THE POINT IS? In reply to Dr KJW Lynn (NT 17/4). Mr Lynn has spent many words doing what Lord Monckton calls “ad hominem” attacks, ie attack the person not his argument. He has attacked Case Smit, John Casey and Woody Dass but has given us no idea of his argument as to why these people are wrong. Is that because he has no argument?

GEOFF LEWIS Noosa MORE MEANINGFUL Since NT is making this space available as a forum for discussion of global warming and the consequent climate destabilization (a much more accurate term than “change”), I suggest that instead of gagging at the profound ignorance of global warming deniers, and mustering repetitive replies to their inanely monotonous

ramblings, that we engage in a more meaningful and urgent discussion of just what we, as a civilization should do in the face of the internationally embarrassing impotence of the current federal government on this issue. It seems to me that unless more people appreciate the dire consequences of destabilizing the Earth’s climate that no political party will be ready to make the really hard decisions that the urgency of the matter requires. It seems clear to me that to ignore the reports of the IPCC would be like continuing to smoke when your doctor tells you it will increase your chance of dying of lung cancer or to ignore the Work Health and Safety regulations regarding asbestos by continuing to drill the asbestos wall boards in your home. We have already waited too long to comfortably wind back production of CO2. We now must replace carbon energy with non-carbon, non-nuclear energy as soon as possible. This is going to be a really hard thing to do because we are so addicted to burning coal, oil or gas for everything we do and because so relatively few people think about this problem. If our governments are not going to act, it leaves individuals or corporations or other institutions to act. Currently, over 20 USA city governments have agreed to disinvest in stocks with fossil fuel components. We could ask Noosa Council to do the same. We could follow this by asking our own super funds to be divested of fossil fuel stocks. This is the debate we should be having.

STEVE HALL Cooroy

EXCELLENT WORK I couldn’t believe the letter from Mel White (NT 17/4) complaining about the few cents of his rates/taxes that are going to fund Landcare, NICA and MRCCC. The money they get from ‘government’ is only a small fraction of their running costs, and the hundreds of volunteers could not do their work without the paid staff to do the administration and organization. Perhaps Mel should spend a day in their shoes, and see what excellent work these lowly paid workers do for the community.

PERSONAL ATTACK Yet again, a recent letter writer has attacked Case Smit personally, because Case’s position during climate change discussions is different from his own. The writer claims victory because he is better qualified to comment. For instance, he says that he was unable to find reference to Mr Smit in a particular Google search. Not that it matters, but when I type “Case Smit” into Google, I note an impressive list of references. Case’s writings are invariably scholarly, never displaying animosity toward climate change devotees. The letter writer has not yet appreciated that the more he concentrates on personal attacks, the more he is likely to lose public support.

COL WHEELER Peregian Beach

AMPLE PROOF Though believing in free speech, one must agree with Dr Lynn and Pat Moore, about those individuals who deliberately and continuously peddle false information in such a persistent manner, and with such whopper fibs, as to suspect that they are consistently are being financed by the big polluters, coal miners and power companies, to carry on regardless of all proof to the contrary. The melting of the polar caps, retreating glaciers and the enormous melt of the Greenland ice cap which threatens the Gulf Stream that makes Britain and Northern Europe habitable, is ample proof of climate change. Excess carbon will pollute and acidify the oceans and kill plankton and so starve all sea

life. Their shameful and criminal campaign seems to have convinced the governments, Federal and State, to greedily legislate toward a backward and rather dire future for our country. Only a few years ago the earth was saved from the deadly solar rays by the banning of CFCs which were destroying the protective ozone layer. Scientists recently stated that there are two more new manmade chemicals that could have the same effect on the protective ozone layer.

LEN CHILES Noosaville RULES ADHERED TO In response to Preben Nielsen (Building Regulations, 17/4), when council receives an application for the relaxation of the regulations in the Noosa Plan it is assessed against the provisions of the plan and in some cases the application may have enough merit for an approval. For example, a provision of the Noosa Plan states that buildings and other structures are appropriately designed and sited to provide amenity for users of the premises, but in some cases the block of land may be constrained by a steep slope or unusual shape. The provisions that regulate these situations are not always fully appropriate and so a relaxation is granted. In the case of Orient Drive and Netherby Rise, the garages have been given zero boundary relaxation because of the steepness of the driveways making it dangerous to reverse out and see on-coming

traffic or pedestrians. There are exceptions to this rule in the Shire, however, Council will not approve any more garages at zero boundary without sufficient justification. State Government legislation allows a total of up to 9m of garages or other similar structures along a side or rear boundary. The maximum height of 8m for detached housing in Noosa is adhered to and a relaxation is only given when a site is constrained by a steep slope or when there is a minimum floor height in a flood area. Site coverage is also kept close to the provisions of the Noosa Plan at 50 per cent for the ground floor and 30 per cent for the upper story or both at 40 per cent. Council has not given any relaxations for 75 per cent or 80 per cent coverage.

PAUL RILEY, Senior Building Cerfier, Noosa Council

DON’T HIDE KOALAS It is being suggested that any existing koalas should be relocated to Noosa National Park. Good idea but who will ever see them? I also question how many local residents or visitors ever see the National Park? In fact, how many can physically walk around and see the Park and views from same? I suggest Kings Park in Perth be used as an example with a tourist drive around the perimeter. This could have a speed limit and could be closed between sunset and sunrise. It could include occasional short-term (five to 10 mins) stopping bays.

At least we would all then be able to view the coast and parkland. Not much point in hiding koalas in the National Park if no-one can see them. I am sure NPA members would be only too pleased to police speed and stopping limits. Do we want tourism and our own pleasure or not? Just because it was opposed years ago we are now 2014 and I hope more matured.

IAN LAWSON Tinbeerwah

DEFIES LOGIC Surely it defies all logic for the Government to be spending billions of taxpayers’ dollars to reduce our relatively minuscule CO2 emissions when it is encouraging the export of coal, and we know for a fact that China, India, Japan, Germany and even the USA are increasing their emissions. Coal is needed to give developing countries the cheap energy they need to raise their standard of living, but they burn it and put CO2 into the earth’s atmosphere; why should we damage our economy and go without when our action is obviously futile? Our Government must think that we, the taxpayers, are incapable of seeing the stupidity of their action. Mark Twain is quoted as saying: “Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it” and I wonder about Australia.

CASE SMIT Noosaville

‘Sardine City’ - court victory for Council FROM PAGE 1 He added that during the amalgamation years Sunshine Coast Council had continued to support the former Noosa Council’s position and had applied significant resources to the case. He said Judge Robin’s 222-page judgement was delivered last Thursday and found the applicant had not established its interest in the land was “injuriously affected” by the changes in the 1997 Strategic Plan. The Court accepted the factual evidence of the council’s experts and on legal points also found in the Council’s favour. “As a matter of curiosity the case lasted so long the judge had to come out of retirement to deliver his final judgement. It is up to RF Thompson whether they wish to appeal. An appeal can only be made on the grounds of an error in law.” Mr de Chastel said the case was followed by many other local governments as it will add to the body of case law about the impacts on Councils when Planning Schemes are changed. “This is a good result for Noosa Council. Subject to any further appeals in this case, it brings to a successful end any financial uncertainty from outstanding compensation claims.”

Celebrating 25 years with best show ever

Exhibitions at the Harbourside Gallery, Tewantin, during May include a solo display by Gunnel Karel

Cooroora Woodworkers Club turns 25 this year and, to celebrate this milestone, the club is determined to make the 2014 Cooroora Wood & Craft Show the best ever, with a great schedule of woodworking demonstrations by nationally recognized masters.

Gunnel, a self-taught artist in oils and acrylics, is the granddaughter of renowned artist Lennart Segerstrale, famous for his altar paintings and frescos throughout Finland. She takes a special interest in nature but also the raw power of the sea in action, which is her favourite subject.

Mists swirl, pelicans glide silently by. The birdlife is prolific. This pristine area stirs the emotions of many of us.” Shirley has drawn on her native homeland and the magic of the African bush and its wildlife to complement the combined exhibition. There is such excitement and anticipation in spotting game in any one of the sub-Saharan national parks, and in trying to capture images on camera. This has inspired Shirley to paint her present series. Since settling here nearly 20 years ago with husband Wim, Shirley has spent many happy hours capturing local scenes. Kristy spent 10 years living on and exploring tropical islands in the South Pacific. It was this environment that resulted in Kristy’s art work becoming predominately about movement and emotion. After five years in the Cook Islands Kristy moved to Perth where

Kristy Smith’s work will be featured at Harbourside Gallery this month

Jill and Shirley have been painting together for several years and share a love of Noosa, yet are diverse in style and subject matter.

The line-up at Cooroy Memorial Hall includes cabinetry (Bob Chaplin), scroll-saw work (Maureen Bowden and Pam Window), carving (Peter Bradford) and turning (George Pearce, Alan Warner and Dennis Donnelly) while rustic furniture (Dave Putland), rocking horse making (John Warrick), toy making (Robert Gray), pen turning (Graham Eastman) and wood milling (Alex Finlay and the team) can be seen at the Lowermill precinct. Visitors will be able to examine the fine woodwork entries in the competitions and also learn how it is done. Many items will be on sale. Club president John Gygar said this was a great opportunity to meet club members who are ready to answer your questions and show you their work. Age is no barrier to woodworking. The Cooroora Woodworkers Club has a membership of over 120, made up of both men and women who have found a great deal of satisfaction and achievement in working with wood. For more information visit www.cooroorawoodworkersclub.com Cooroora Wood & Craft Show will be held at Cooroy Memorial Hall and the Lowermill Precinct on Friday and Saturday, May 9 and 10. Entry is just $2pp and U16s are free.

GUEST ARTISTS Kristy Smith, Jill Harris and Shirley Beekhuis are guest artists at Harbourside Gallery for the month of May. Jill and Shirley have been painting together for several years and share a love of Noosa, yet are diverse in style and subject matter. Jill has been influenced by Lake Weyba for this exhibition, describing it as “so peaceful at daybreak.

she opened her first art gallery and assisted other budding artists to start their own careers. Kristy now resides on the Coast where she has enjoyed renovating a 100 year old Queenslander and

looking after her one-year-old. All exhibitions will be open from 10am to 4pm daily at Harbourside Gallery, Noosa Marina. Phone 5447 5007 or 0411 244 304 or see artists@harboursidegallery.com.au

A Mexican wedding

Liz from London, Jen from Cape Cod, Jackie and Phil from Noosa.

LIFE OF BRINE PHIL JARRATT

We’re in the gorgeous central Mexican town of San Miguel de Allende, shacked ed up in a magnificent villa rented by our friends, the Hills, where I have taken over the pool house as an office. I would like to say that I am going to spend nd he this sunny Sunday writing between dips in the ng pool, but all around me people are scurrying od hither and yon with groaning platters of food ral and ice buckets full of wine and tequila. Several men in snazzy white suits and sombreros have just arrived and dumped odd-shaped cases on my working desk. They are possibly members of the cartel and they have machine guns in their cases, or more likely this is the mariachi band, and at any moment the recovery party will begin. So, I will try to be brief, but this is a long story. Nearly 40 years ago I met a young television producer who was in the throes of revolutionising the coverage of cricket by placing a camera to shoot from either end of the pitch. As dumb as that sounds today, this was the fundamental change in approach that would inspire his boss, Kerry Packer, to create the rebel World Series Cricket machine, and would make David Hill’s name as the guru of televised sport. When Hilly turned his attention to surfing a year or so later, I was his sounding board for two award-winning series, Surfabout 78 and Surfabout 79. Even though he was loud, abrasive and hard to control, Hilly and I got on like a house on fire. Always have. When he couldn’t make it to my wedding in 1979, he had Johnny Tapp interrupt the live coverage of the Rosehill races to wish Phil and Jackie all the best. Since then I’ve always believed Hilly could make anything happen, and now I believe the same of his son, Julian, about whom more in a minute. In early 1984, my boss, the self-same Kerry Packer, sent me to Los Angeles to report on preparations for the Los Angeles Olympics, the first ever “free enterprise games” that would

Jules and Lou

make money instead of losing it. Over a margarita-fuelled lunch in Marina Del Rey, I met a young Australian who was determined to turn that economic equation around. Ric Birch was in charge of the opening and closing ceremonies of the LA Olympics, and like Hilly with the cricket, he made such a brilliant statement that his career was defined by it, and up until London, he had not missed an Olympics, summer or winter, while squeezing in just about every other major public event that required a splashy start, including, as it happened, the 2010 bicentenary of Mexican independence. About a decade ago, Hilly and I met up in Pamplona, Spain, for the running of the bulls at the San Fermin festival. David’s son Julian was studying Spanish at nearby Navarro University and joined us for the three-day binge. Although I had known him all his life, this was not the same whining little boy who had so annoyed us. Jules had become a clever, witty, confident, loveably loud young man, just like his dad had been. Fluent in Spanish, connected in the worlds of television and entertainment, Jules was a natural pick for Ric Birch’s righthand man to create the spectacle of the Mexican bicentenary. Two years after that huge event, Jules and I met up in a West End pub in London, where we were both working on rather different aspects of the London Olympics, me in the Foxtel studio, him running the “Welcome to Rio” presentation during the closing ceremony. Over a couple of beers, Jules told me that he had met the love of

his life, Lourdes Ordonez, during the Mexican extravaganza, and they were soon to be married. “You will be there,” he stated categorically. I hugged him and said I would. If there is one thing we have learnt after all these years of friendship with this wonderfully crazy, high-flying family, it is loyalty. These dudes abide. So this is why my wife and I, and Ric Birch and his gorgeous new Polish bride Beatta, are standing in a flower-filled park at twilight in San Miguel, sniffling into our hankies as Lou and Jules are betrothed in the most simple and beautiful ceremony imaginable. We would not, could not, have been absent. THE FIVE AMIGOS A lot of tequila shots went down last weekend, and I’m not going to pretend that I remember every detail, but I do recall borrowing a few sombreros from the mariachi boys for a group photo before we got too silly. I’m looking at that photo now, and it brings a tear to my eye

because I’m not sure how many of these dear friends I’ll see again. We’re at that age.

retire today Never be bored; never be lonely

This has never been truer with the official launch of U3A Noosa’s new “What’s on?” booklet by Councillor Sandy Bolton last week. With even more new members signing up to join classes, courses and the abundant social activities, the rest of the year appears to be bigger than ever.

Amongst the many activities coming up is Armchair Travel on May 16, when Griet & Peter Hes-

se present From Shanghai to Beijing - a trip of a lifetime. The couple travelled for 12 days by plane, high speed train, bus and ship (Yangtze River) through some of China’s most beautiful scenery and historical places. This fascinating talk starts at 1.45pm and afternoon tea will be served. It’s open to the public for just $4 at U3A House, 64 Poinciana Ave, Tewantin, opposite the Shell Servo. Meghan Halverson of the Queensland Koala Crusaders will present a

moving and very informative talk on the koalas of the Sunshine Coast and what we can all do to ensure their survival on Friday, May 30. It seems we may have some new residents spotted recently in Noosa National Park but the general koala population around us may be extinct within 10 years unless we act now. Some U3A members are already Koala Crusaders so come along with your friends at 1.45pm and discover why.

Planning for your retirement On average, people are spending around 20 years at school, technical colleges or other education institutions; 35 years working, and 20-plus years in retirement. There is a real need to plan for your years in retirement, so you can make the most of this time. And as Julie Schafer of ES&A

Financial Services says: “You have been looking forward to this for so long, you deserve the best! “Evidence shows that if you come into retirement as healthy as possible, you are more likely to stay that way. Evidence also shows that if you plan for major events, such as retiring, they are more likely to happen and work out well. There is a lot to think about when

planning your retirement. Working out how much money you need in retirement is not easy. Most people need to replace some, or all, of their current income with investment income. By planning your retirement early you can ensure you are taking advantage of the strategies and the time you have available to you.” ES&A can help you by planning a retirement strategy that suits your

personal and financial circumstances; evaluating the different options available when moving into retirement, and developing tax-effective strategies that can help to grow your capital and provide you with an income over time. “We can also help with superannuation strategies and investments, as well as estate planning,” Julie said. ES&A is owned and managed by Julie Schafer, daughter of Ellen

Schafer, its founder, making this a strong local family business that has stood the test of time. Julie spent many years as her mother’s understudy, giving her the advantage of learning the industry from the ground up. She worked in every sector of the business, spending time as the Client Services Officer, the Para-planner and eventually a consulting Financial Planner.

Day Mother’s Day as we know it was first celebrated in Grafton, West Virginia, in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her beloved mother. Miss Jarvis began a letter campaign to make Mother’s Day a nationally recognised holiday in honour of mothers, their influence in society, maternal bonds and motherhood itself. Her campaign was successful in the United States with Mother’s Day being declared a holiday in 1914. Soon after, the holiday was adopted by other countries and is now celebrated all over the world. But, like all good things, the rise of Mother’s Day was not without controversy. In 1923, Miss Jarvis filed a lawsuit to halt a Mother’s Day festival and was arrested for disturbing the peace. Miss Jarvis said she felt the day had become too commercialised; a day of sentiment had turned into a day of profit. Today, Mother’s Day is traditionally held in spring with Australia holding the day on the second Sunday of May. In Australia, many celebrate Mother’s Day with flowers, chocolates and an outing to lunch with their mums, while younger children often make handmade gifts.

Coolum Art Group’s bi-annual art exhibition, held at Coolum Civic Centre over the Easter long weekend, was a great success thanks to beautiful weather and crowds of holidaymakers. Coolum Art Group’s spokesperson Lynn Shaw said there were a pleasing number of sales along with lots of beautiful crafts being snapped up. The high standard of work drew many comments and the judges had a challenging time singling out winners in the art competition, Ms Shaw said. The winners for the “Food” themed art prize were Bob Holford in first place, Noel Cumper with second, Pauline Dykes in third place and Shirley Lennon as runner-up. The winner of the People’s Choice award was new group member, Sally Thompson with her pastel creation. After a very successful show, preparations are now underway for the group’s spring exhibition.

The Rumours are true Tewantin Noosa RSL is proud to present Rumours, the Australian Fleetwood Mac experience. Performing this Saturday, from 8pm, Rumours delivers the magical Fleetwood Mac sound, reproduced to the highest degree of authenticity by a committed team of musicians. Formed on the Gold Coast in

1995, the band consists of five musicians who have pooled their talents and energies to achieve a combination that is hard to equal. Joanne Stanley portrays Fleetwood Mac’s breathtaking songbird, Stevie Nicks, while Debbie Hinton is the alluring and brilliant keyboard/vocalist, Christine McVie. Graeme Thompson takes on the role of solid bass master, John

McVie, and Rick Hay is the moody, artistic and sensitive song and guitar man, Lindsay Buckingham. To complete the show, the powerful drum sound of Mick Fleetwood, the creator and mentor of Fleetwood Mac, is superbly delivered by Terry Gascoigne. Rumours delivers a tight, punchy rhythm section, guitar work that varies from sensitive to screaming, combined with key-

board both rich and full. Add to this the harmonies of four superb vocalists and Fleetwood Mac, at its best, lives again. Don’t miss your chance to see and experience Fleetwood Mac the way they were when Rumours perform at the Tewantin Noosa RSL this Saturday, from 8pm. Phone 5447 1766 for dinner and courtesy bus bookings.

Slow and steady ensures perfection A welcome addition to Belmondos Whole Foods Markets is the artisan bread company, Tanglewood Organic Sourdough Bakery.

The bakery draws inspiration from the natural beauty of the Tanglewood Track in Noosa National Park, with its winding path through tropical rainforest, eucalypt woodlands and along the pristine coast, where early risers dodge gnarled and knotted buttress roots and snatch glimpses of turquoise ocean as they pace the track to start their day.

Organic sourdough range incorporates ancient grains, sprouted grains, activated nuts, fresh milled flour and gluten free breads.

Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift asks all Coast locals to raise their cups in the fight against cancer on May 22, for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. Pop the kettle on and tuck into some delicious morning tea treats – there truly has never been an easier way to make a difference in the fight against cancer! Queenslanders will gather in living rooms, community centres, schools and workplaces to help us raise more than $2.5 million for cancer research, education programs and patient support services in 2014. The cause has never been more important. One in two Queenslanders will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime – around 24,000 people this year alone. It’s so easy to get involved - you can make a donation, register to host your own Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, or join in with a friend at biggestmorningtea. com.au More information about Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is available at biggestmorningtea.com.au or 1300 65 65 85. More information about Cancer Council Queensland is available at cancerqld. org.au or via Cancer Council Helpline 13 11 20.

But unlike the early risers on the track, Tanglewood Organic Sourdough Bakery prefer to rise slowly. All their breads use a 20 hour ferment to break down acetic and phytic acid which aids digestion and increases the natural flavour and character of each loaf. Their organic sourdough range incorporates ancient grains, sprouted grains, activated nuts, fresh milled flour and gluten free breads. Enjoy their breads on their own, or warmed with organic extra virgin olive oil and Celtic sea salt or simply spread with organic butter.

TIGER TALK JULIAN PITTS

The Fiona Winter Realty/PJ Burns Noosa Tigers have kept their unbeaten season going after a physically gruelling eight-point win against long time rivals Maroochydore, in front of a fantastic local crowd celebrating Anzac weekend last Saturday.

The game remained tight throughout and while Maroochy held as much as a 20-point lead midway through the third term, the Tigers’ never-say-die attitude and the ability of the team’s experienced leaders to seize crucial moments saw them come out the victors. The physical approach from both sides was evident of the fierce rivalry that has existed on the Sunshine Coast for over 40 years. Caleb ‘Cubby’ Isles was simply outstanding in his first game of the year for the victors, his relentless running and possession gathering enough to give

him the Daddow/Parry Medal for the best player on the ground. Noosa life member and longtime football manager Doug Murray said: “It was just a hard fought game of footy that could have gone either way. Whilst McKittrick was dominant in the first half, I thought the efforts of old stager Brett Duke, the ever consistent Cubby Isles and the fresh legs of young Seb Rogers were very influential on the result. All in all, a top win and very good game of local footy.” Opposition coach Brett Maloney said: “Noosa’s leaders put up their hand when needed and

we just couldn’t get across the line. We will learn from it but I know there`ll be a few sore boys this week at training.” Noosa now, along with Mayne, remain the only undefeated side in the newly formed QFA North competition and face another tough ask this week as they head down the Sunshine Motorway to face the well recruited and much improved Caloundra. The Tigers actually went down to Caloundra just over a month ago in their final practise match but are sure to be much improved this Saturday and full of confidence after such a big win over the Roos last week. Once again, this is shaping up to be a terrific game of local Aussie Rules not to be missed. The Ressies went down to Maroochy last Saturday by 10 points but are already showing many promising signs and I’m sure Rob Purvis’ boys will be looking to redeem themselves this Saturday. The Ressies have some real quality and experience in the team and continue to look good in season 2014. Don’t be surprised to see 2012 Club Champion Riley Buntain return to the seniors for the Caloundra clash and also 2010 senior premiership player and 188 gamer Garry Wallace back in Tigers colours this weekend. Both boys will be welcomed back with open arms. See you at Caloundra this Saturday. Go Tigers!

Tiger cubs starting to roar RICHARD MURRIHY

Sorry for missing the U10s so they go first this week. The team is improving with multiple goal-kickers this weekend. Best players were Rory McKenzie, who won the Team Spirit award, and Jacob Topovsek, who claimed the Domino’s Pizza Hot Shot Sports award. This newly established team is showing great sportsmanship. The coach said this was the best team play he has seen. With a real focus this week on tackling, Noosa had its fair share

of the ball. There were many who could be named this week for their skills, goals and team effort, so the boys should all be really proud of their efforts. Results for the 16s: Goal kickers C Boardman 5, R Tarling 4, N Riddle 3, H Maher 3, L Braund 2, Z Jenkins 2, R Gordon 2, J Higgins, W Crawford.

Third season for Noosa Seahorses RON LANE

Noosa Seahorses launched their new season last weekend on Noosa Main Beach. Calm surf and a bright sunny day was just what the organisers wished for. Formed two seasons ago by Steve and Nikki Mawby of Noosa Surf Life Saving Club, and ably supported by many workers such as Lorna Gardner and others, it has become so successful that other clubs, not only in Queensland but interstate too, are showing interest. Redcliffe is now underway and Dickie Beach is starting to move. Also helpers from Peregian and Sunshine Beach have become involved. On Saturday the season started with 33 members and, as in past seasons, they were allocated carers, either one-on-one or, if needed, two carers

per child. This year, to help us get to know each individual child, a new form has been designed and drawn up. Known as the About Me Information sheet, it contains details of the child such as parents’ names, hobbies, medical conditions and permission to photograph. It also contains information that is relevant to the child’s likes and dislikes. The form on completion is placed on the white board in the Seahorse club room, to be referred to by the child’s carer. Membership is free and interested families can call 5474 5688 ext 2. On Friday, three members from the Collaroy Club in NSW will arrive to do a hands-on study. This is a good indication of the high regard in which Noosa Seahorses is now held. Despite big crowds on Main Beach for annual swims parking for the parents was of little concern, thanks to the help of Councillor Frank Pardon.

It’s all About Me!

TEWANTIN BOWLS CLUB Our ladies are to be congratulated for conducting a successful Easter Saturday Open Pairs event which attracted a large number of entries.

COOROY BOWLS CLUB There’s an old saying that goes: “It’s never over until the fat lady sings!” Well that certainly was the case on Sunday morning when the game was won on the last bowl in the Men’s Championship Pairs. R Hassall and G Green were leading by one point going into the final end. B French and E Kenzler were drawing with them until the last bowl, beautifully played by E Kenzler, which gave them the winning shot. Brekky Bowls and Player of the Month were well supported with G Dodd and T Charles going through to the finals later in the year. JeLs and Bushrangers now sit equal second behind Eumundi Boys after winning their matches on Thursday night in the High Rollers Comp. JACS now sit in third position. Next Saturday is the May Carnival with good

prize money to be won, so think about your teams now.

Angus, Stirling, Jax and Darcy defended the line like their lives depended on it. Domino’s Pizza Player of the Match was Darcy Fairbanks. U6 Noosa Fins 35 drew Caloundra Lighthouses 35: What a great start to the official season. Enthusiasm was shown all round by the Fins against an always determined Caloundra team.

Domino’s Pizza Player of the Match was Brendan Drahm. U8 Noosa Reds 10 - Uni 45: A very strong first half with Captain Finnbar punching forward, going to ground and playing the ball back for Mack to score. Will had strong runs and was lightning fast. Joch worked really hard in

defence. James had a blinder displaying committed courageous tackling that stopped certain tries. Second half had us running out of a bit of steam but never gave up. Fantastic game by Kaleb and Remi continues to improve pulled off great tackles. U8 Noosa Fins 35 def Matthew Flinders 5: A dominant break down marshalled by Marli (Captain), Jonathan, Dylan and Oliver set the platform for two early breakaway tries by Tom, and a powerful run and try from Jonathan settled any early nerves for the season opener.

Ironmen gather to help mate Steve BETWEEN THE FLAGS RON LANE

As folklore goes Sunday, April 27, 2014 will be a day to remember for Noosa Heads Surf Life Saving Club. For on this day, perhaps for the first time ever in Australian surf lifesaving history, 17 lifesavers who have won the Iron Man Championship of Australia were bought together in one room, the Surf Club in Hasting St, Noosa Heads. The reason was to support one of their numbers, Steve Pullen, Australian Iron Man Champion 1999. Steve, who is fighting a crippling disease, is now a member of the Noosa Club and is in need of financial support. So along with his club mates, the iron men were there to help. What an afternoon it was. For the last two months a Noosa fundraising team headed by Jo Power had been pushing raffle tickets, and the drawing of the prizes plus the auction of goods donated were to be all part of the afternoon. As supporters gathered and peo-

ple became aware of the esteemed gathering of ironmen legends, cameras were produced and photos taken. Then under the control of MC Benny Pike, the program got underway. Gerard O’Brien, Deputy President, welcomed everyone saying, “This is a worthy cause and I thank all for coming.” Pike’s opening remarks said

it all, “How good is this? Seventeen Australian Ironmen Champions in the one room.” Turning to the first ever Ironman champion, Hayden Kenny, he asked, “Hayden, have you ever seen this before?” “No”, said Hayden, “definitely not. This is the first time ever.” With this Pike then called the iron-

men to assemble on stage. All were introduced and some of these were unique. Hayden Kenny and son Grant were the only father and son to win the coveted award, the Mercer brothers, Dean and Darren, Trevor Hendy, and Shannon Eckstein both of whom won the title an incredible six times. As the afternoon progressed ironman

Greg Allum said in his remarks, “If you win an ironman ours is a sort of brotherhood.” It was this statement that made us all realize why some had travelled so far and at their own expense to help one of their own. Several people were called on to speak and a lot of Steve’s mates told stories out of school, some of which bought laughter and applause. Then it was Steve’s turn. “I feel like I am on This is Your Life. First let me thank all of you who have helped. I really appreciate it. In particular, my mum and all the team at the Blood Bank; my mates Tony Silver, Paul Peterson and Mark Jacobs.’’ Asked what motivated him, Steve said: “My main motivation has been my dad, Jim. Dad won an Australian gold medal in the 1969/70 season when he and a bloke called Hennessy won the double ski final. So I just wanted to be like him and win gold.’’ In 1998, as a member of the Alexander Headlands club, his dream became a reality when he made the Iron Man final in big surf at Kurrawa. When describing his win, he jokingly asked, “Hey do you know who was in that final? Hendy, Hurst and Mercer and guess what? I beat them all.” It was very clear that the big heart and fighting spirit of Steve Pullen is very much alive and well.

Season continues well for outriggers JO SEARLE

Noosa Outriggers once again brought great results in the South Queensland race series, competing in the fifth race of the series, hosted by

Pananuma Outrigger Canoe Club - the 20km long course race from Mooloolaba to Moffats Beach.

In the long course event the Golden Master Men were first, while the Master Men’s team achieved second, and the Senior Master

Men’s teams third and sixth in their respective categories. The master women took out fourth place in a very competitive field and the Senior Master Women fifth. Noosa Outrigger Canoe Club is now preparing to host the final race in the current series, being held

in Noosa on Saturday, May 10. There will be both a 22km long course and a 13km short course. You can watch the action at Main Beach or from Noosa National Park ocean walk track, as the long course goes from Main Beach to Sunshine Beach return.
