Masters blasters By JONATHON HOWARD

A DECISION to approve the Masters Home Improvement Centre at Noosaville has been described as “disgraceful” by several local residents. The Planning and Environment Court ruled in favour of Masters this month, paving the way for the turf wars between Bunnings Warehouse

and Masters to reach Noosa and there’s no stopping it. The decision was made despite growing opposition from local business owners and Sunshine Coast Council, as well as Noosa Shire Council, denying the Masters’ development application in March last year. However, the court overturned the Sunshine Coast Council’s decision and the development of the 9922-square-

metre centre will now go ahead on Hofmann Drive, Noosaville. Noosa Shire Council had previously outlined three areas of concern with the development ranging from it being inconsistent with the Noosa Plan, impact on local businesses and a cap on further showrooms. However, Judge Michael E. Rackemann said the Masters’ developer, Hydrox Nominees, had fulfilled the re-

quirements to overcome conflicts with the Noosa planning scheme. Noosa Today undertook a snap survey of local residents to get their views. Noosaville resident Robyn Howard said the decision left little room for small operators. “It’s disgraceful,” she said. “Do we really need another Bunnings or another Masters in the area.”

Trish Bordignon, of Noosaville, said she did not see the point in another hardware outlet. “There are already plenty of hardware stores in the region and what does this mean for small businesses,” she said. However, Doonan resident William Keeshan said he has no problem with the development. Continued on Page 5

Kitchen capers have lunchers in stitches By JOLENE OGLE THE 2014 International Food and Wine Festival started with a bang and a lot of laughter when comedian Wendy Harmer made a guest appearance at the Westpac Ruby Lunch, on Thursday. Wendy, also editor-in-chief of sassy newsite, The Hoopla, shared her hi-

larious adventures in cooking and marriage, as well as memories of her very first kitchen - think lime green benchtops, splades, stoneware ramekins and electric frypans. Wendy also recalled the first menu she “managed to pull off”, which included prawn cocktail, Spanish rice,

beef stroganoff, fruit salad with Grand Marnier, all served to the sweet sounds of Neil Diamond. As the first event of the three-day festival, guests were also treated to a three-course menu created by Melbourne chef and co-owner of Union Dining, Nicky Riemer.

All meals were matched by Seppelt wines and diners enjoyed chilled chicken ballotine for entree, Pacific Reef Cobia with Noosa Red tomatoes, Kinkawooka mussels and green goddess sauce for main and a decadent chocolate mousse, fresh berries and passionfruit for dessert.

Westpac director of women’s markets Larke Riemer said this year’s Ruby Lunch was a sold-out event and there was already a waiting list for the 2015 Ruby Lunch. “But, we’re not sure how we can beat Wendy Harmer as a guest speaker,” she said.

Volunteers are needed to help stop the spread of weeds.

Noosa Plan set to change By JOLENE OGLE

Waging war on weeds THE Seaview Creek Sunshine Beach Bushcare Group has joined the local war against the Singapore daisy, with a planting day planned for next Thursday 29 May. Singapore daisy is listed by the Noosa Integrated Catchment Association (NICA) as a weed, which is an introduced plant growing away from the ecosystem where it evolved and where, without natural predators to control the growth of the plant, weeds such as Singapore daisy can destroy the balance of natural bushland by out-competing native species. The Seaview Creek group joins other major Noosa environmental groups, such as Noosa Biosphere (NBL), NICA, the Sunshine Beach Surf Lifesaving Club and Noosa and District Landcare, who have created

the Fall of Singapore project. NBL chair Sue Davis said Noosa Biosphere was pleased to join the eradication project, which is made possible through a Queensland Government Everyone’s Environment grant. Ms Davis said the aim of the project was to weed, rehabilitate and revegetate four high priority areas in the Noosa Catchment, to improve and consolidate environmental connectivity, biodiversity and resilience over a three-year period. The four areas of focus include the Sunshine Beach SLSC dune foreshore, Sunshine Creek, a threehectare perimeter of the Girraween Reserve and 1.4 hectares along Eenie Creek, behind the industrial area. In a statement to media, NBL said

Seaview Creek group invites everyone to come along on 29 May to the section of Noosa National Park along Cooyar Street, from 8.30am. these high profile areas were “nearing a point of no return, with severe degradation stopping native plant natural regeneration” and “weed species trees, understory and ground covers - have been displacing endemic vegetation, destroying wildlife corridors and habitat”.

Anyone is welcome to help stop the spread of Singapore daisy and the Seaview Creek group invites everyone to come along on 29 May to the section of Noosa National Park along Cooyar Street, from 8.30am, to help plant native species to aid in rejuvenation. “The weeds have been removed, the area mulched and we need some extra hands to help plant the new seedlings,” group organiser Jill Campbell said. All volunteers are asked to bring a hat, sturdy footwear and water. All tools and morning tea will be provided. For more information, phone Jill on 5447 5379 or, for details on other planting events, phone Wendy May from Noosa and District Landcare on 5485 2155 or 0419 377 423.

A BAN on intensive animal husbandry, more parks with better usability and stricter building codes were among the suggested amendments to the Noosa Plan. The suggestions were part of a report presented to the Planning and Organisation committee on Tuesday that provided a summary of the 78 submissions received during the council’s consultation period that ran from 7 April to 5 May. Eight key themes were identified and included concerns surrounding business, housing choice, rural areas, technical issues, vegetation protection, flood hazard, strategic outcomes and community, recreation and open space, plus locality specific issues were also included. The report states there were a number of requests to “not allow” intensive animal husbandry in Noosa “because of the potential disruption to neighbours’ quality of life”. Other issues raised include overnight camping, with a suggestion that the council allow for a small number of small vans/campers/cars to park and camp overnight at Noosa Spit for a fee in a bid to remove the current issue of camping overnight. The report also noted concern about the “infiltration of business and tourism activities into land zoned open space and recreation at the expense of facilities and open space available for local residents”. Stricter limits on the use of public open space or compensation for the community, were among the suggestions to resolve this issue. The recommended amendments to the Noosa Plan will now be discussed in detail by the council. Subject to council endorsement, the amendments will be sent to the State Government for the first state interest review, followed by formal public notification of the changes. The full report is available at the Noosa Council website www.noosa. qld.gov.au, under Meeting Minutes.

Centre makes a meal of grant By JOLENE OGLE A NEW fridge and freezer is a wish come true for Eumundi’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, which can now store bulk food thanks to a community grant. The rehabilitation centre has received $2090 as part of the Queensland Government’s Caring for our Community program that has seen local organisations share in more than $14,000 to help them buy much-needed equipment. Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre president Ken Hodges said the organisation was very grateful for the grant as they could now buy bulk animal food and store it safely in the fridge and freezer. “The fridge and freezer we currently have are getting old. I think they were donated when we first opened,” he said. “With the new gear we can keep down some costs and buy in bulk, as food is our biggest cost.” Noosa MP Glen Elmes said it was important to support local community and volunteer organisations as they are the backbone of places such as Noosa. “We understand the importance of these groups and have a strong plan to grow Queensland communities,” he said. Three other local groups received a share in the funding, including Noosa Branch Little Athletics Centre, Noosa Outrigger Canoe Club and Peregian Beach Surf Life Saving Club. “Whether it’s for a printer, computer, fridge or microwave, the cost of equipment or infrastructure mounts up quickly for spirit-rich but cash-poor community groups,” Mr Elmes said. “A small boost like this can go along way and make a real difference.” Mr Hodges said the community grant was a great show of support for local groups. “Mr Elmes has been very supportive. We must have touched his heart,” he said.

Crash test for rescue readiness By JONATHON HOWARD ALL of Noosa’s emergency response services will be put through their paces during a simulated beach crash rescue operation scheduled for 31 May. The simulation will test the response capabilities of all local emergency service organisations, including two helicopters, to ensure co-ordinated response times in the event of a major accident. The operation will take place along the busy stretch of beach at Teewah on Noosa’s north shore. Noosa Fire and Rescue area commander Rob Fray said the simulation was a big event for local emergency service crews and would test the limits of their capabilities. “The Teewah stretch of beach to Rainbow can be one of the busiest roads in the region, with more than 6000 vehicles using the beach per day during peak holiday periods,” he said. “With this in mind, we are simulating a very real major accident involving a collision between a tourist bus and a 4WD - with an estimated 30 victims simulated.”

Mr Fray said the scenario would test the limits of emergency service crews in the hope of finding any inefficiencies during the post-incident debriefing session. “All the local emergency response organisation work extremely well together, but there’s is always room to test and improve our effectiveness in the event of a major incident,” he said. “The debriefing will include what worked well and what needs improvement.” Organisations involved include Noosa Fire and Rescue, Noosa Ambulance Service, Noosa Police, Westpac helicopter response, RACQ helicopter response, Noosa SES and the Noosa Counter Disaster Response Group - as well as more to be announced. Mr Fray wanted to inform visitors and locals using the beach around Teewah on Saturday 31 May, that the simulation area will be cordoned off and clearly marked.

Noosa Fire and Rescue firefighter, Tim O’Connell is fired up for Noosa’s accident simulation later this month.

Region at a loss WHILE the Noosa Council is happy with the recent court decision over a 14-year legal action by developer Roy Thompson, it has been less fortunate in its legal stoush over a Masters Home Improvement store at Noosaville. Former Sunshine Coast councillor, now Noosa councillor, Tony Wellington had led the charge against the Masters development. The development application originally came before the Sunshine Coast Council in March 2013. In spite of staff recommending an approval, Cr Wellington moved a successful motion to refuse the development. When the developer appealed that decision, Sunshine Coast Council decided to defend the appeal. The Noosa Council followed suit by continuing to defend the appeal. But now the game is up, with the Masters appeal upheld by the Planning and Environment Court.

Cr Wellington says the court decision will impact not just on local businesses but also Noosa’s economy. “Studies in the USA have shown that 80 cents out of every dollar that is spent at big box stores leaves the local economy,” he said. “In the Barnstable County at Cape Cod, for example, the economic impacts of a new Lowes Home Improvement Store included an estimated annual $6.6 million in lost business sales, 92 jobs lost and a net loss of $4.2 million per year in household earnings. “In Australia, Masters Home Improvement is a joint venture between the American Lowes Home Improvement stores and Woolworths. While Masters has been making significant losses, its real purpose is to challenge the supremacy of Bunnings. It’s just another aspect of the ongoing war between the two giants of Australian retailing, Woolworths and Coles/Wesfarmers.

In that crazy battle for supremacy there is plenty of ‘collateral damage’: inevitably big box stores displace locally owned businesses and in the process reduce consumer choices and diminish competition. “Woolworths owns Woolworth Supermarkets, Masters Home Improvement Stores, Big W, Dan Murphys, BWS and Cellarmasters. Wesfarmers owns Coles Supermarkets, Bunnings, Target, Kmart, Liquorland, First Choice, and Officeworks. “This scale of duopoly in the retail sector is not seen in other western nations. It seems to me that the whole country is relentlessly moving towards boring sameness in the retail area, and I think that is a crying shame. “The Planning and Environment Court decision demonstrates how little control councils actually have in protecting both local businesses and their local economy.”

Residents outraged From page 1 “The days of the local hardware store are dead and gone - Masters and Bunnings offer a great range and low prices,” Mr Keeshan said. Noosa Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Sarah Fisher said she supported local small businesses in the region and supported development which provides employment to locals and benefits the community. “Businesses should be free to choose when and where they wish to trade,” she said.

“We really should have only one set of rules for all business sizes, however we need to be mindful that there are only limited options available to us to address market dominance of Coles, Woolies, Bunnings and Masters. Noosa Chamber sympathises with those small businesses that are at a competitive disadvantage when competing against majors, this is a problem that has to be addressed for all Queensland small business to continue to be viable, grow and employ.” Noosa Council deputy mayor Bob Abbot, who spoke

against the Masters-Bunnings rivalry reaching Noosa, said he could not comment on council’s views, but said he was personally “disappointed”. “It’s a shame for local business,” he said. “And no matter what Masters does within the community, there’s still going to be collateral damage.” Fighting the development also came at a cost with Noosa Council forking out $171,745 to fight the development. Masters covered their own legal costs.

Chance to learn more GOOD Shepherd Lutheran College is excited to be opening their doors to prospective students and their families for their annual open day, this Tuesday. Visitors will have the opportunity to see the college in action, including meeting some of the staff and students, taking a tour of the campus, enjoying morning or afternoon tea, as well as the opportunity to participate in activities. College principal Anthony Dyer said he was proud to welcome prospective students to have a look at the school. “We understand that when parents are considering a school for their children, they might feel more comfortable attending an open day rather than attending a one-on-one appointment - which we also offer throughout the year,” Mr Dyer said. First established more than 25 years ago, the college has an array of facilities including state-of-theart library, 25m pool, indoor health and physical education complex and performing arts theatre.

Mr Dyer said the school had a strong commitment to Christian values and beliefs with a focus on pastoral care. “The college is proud of its reputation of retaining qualified, professional teaching and supporting staff who are committed to providing a very caring and nurturing environment for our students,” he said. “We also offer an early learning centre on campus through Little Lambs as well as Outside School Hours Care giving families great continuity in their children’s education and care.” The Good Shepherd Lutheran College’s open day is on Tuesday 27 May, at 115 Eumundi Road, Noosaville, with two convenient session times: 9am-10.30am or 3.30pm-5pm. For further information or to receive an information pack please contact the college on 07 5455 8600 or visit www.gslc.qld.edu.au.

Peregian Springs State School’s teachers are in the running for the Office Max A Day Made Better award.

Top teachers to feature PEREGIAN teachers are making a mark on students with almost 30 local teachers nominated in Office Max’s A Day Made Better awards. The A Day Made Better program is a hunt for Australia’s most exceptional teachers who do more than just teach. Office Max is looking for teachers who inspire, nurture and encourage students to build knowledge, confidence and life-skills. Nominations are still open until 30 May, but teachers from Peregian Beach College and Peregian Springs State School have already received numerous nominations. Rachel Preston of Peregian Beach College has received seven nominations for her dedication to teaching, while 20 teachers from Peregian

Students Ashleigh Podlich, Caitlin Corbett, Ethan Oberem and Joshua Zhang.

Springs State School have already racked up 59 nominations between them. All of these local teachers are in the running to be one of 10 teachers across the nation who will be recognised for their inspirational work with a surprise event, $2000 of Office Max art, craft, stationery and office supplies for their classroom, plus an Apple iPad. For the second year in a row, nominations will be accepted from the broader community including parents, students, teachers, family and friends, as well as teachers, principals and school administrators. Office Max Australia’s director of education Darren Steel said the pro-

gram highlights the passion and dedication of Australia’s teachers. “We are so fortunate to have such high-calibre teachers in this country and, while their day-to-day work is truly appreciated, outside recognition through programs such as A Day Made Better really delights and motivates them to keep up the good work,” he said. Nominations close on 30 May, and recipients will be thanked with a surprise celebration in August 2014. To nominate a primary school teacher, simply visit www.adaymadebetter.com.au and enter the teacher’s name and school, and detail why you believe they deserve to be honoured.

Students saving lives By JONATHON HOWARD

Easter bus a big hit By JOLENE OGLE NOOSA Council’s free Easter bus has been hailed a success, with more than 33,000 people using the service over the eight day period. In a report presented to Council’s Infrastructure and Services committee on Tuesday, Translink reported a 215 per cent increase in passengers when compared to last year, making this their highest passenger rates on record. The report said passenger numbers may even be higher than those recorded as “manual button pushing” was used to count passengers.

Student paramedics Airlie Paynter, left, and Linder Van Hulssen are Noosa’s newest recruits and are eager to learn. coast and I’m thrilled to be here and to be making a difference in people’s lives,” she said. Noosa Ambulance Station officer in charge Ashleigh Westerman said the station welcomed its new recruits.

“Throughout the year, they will complete on-road training and various clinical examinations under the expert guidance of senior mentors,” he said. Mr Westerman said the demands placed on paramedics were extremely high, but keeping positive and remain-

ing focused on patients remained the priority. “We hope to give our students the right training to not only cope with the daily operations of life on the road, but also to keep a positive outlook and remaining patient focused.”

An independent survey was also conducted for the duration of the service and found that people aged between 16-18 years and 41-60 years were more likely to use the service, 97 per cent of respondents were either “extremely satisfied” or “satisfied” with their trip, and 40 per cent of Noosa respondents said they would use public transport more in the future as a result of the initiative. The free bus service ran from 14 April to 21 April and included the bus routes 626, 627, 628, 629 and 632, plus additional routes 064 and 065.

TWO fresh graduate paramedics are learning the realities of saving lives in Noosa this year and they’ve embraced the challenge with gusto. Airlie Paynter and Linder Van Hulssen joined the Noosa Ambulance team in March as part of a year of supervised placement. Both women have been learning the ropes under the mentorship of more experienced paramedics. “We have already seen a pretty good mix of the kind of jobs paramedics do every day,” Ms Paynter, 26, said. Both of the newcomers completed university placements at various ambulance stations prior to their graduation and subsequent employment with QAS. Ms Van Hulssen, who balances her work life with a two-year-old son, said she was eager to learn as much as she could in order to make a difference in people’s lives. Ms Paynter said she became a paramedic after she was inspired by her mother’s work as a midwife. “This might sound like a cliche, but I really just want to help people,” Ms Paynter said. “I think I am learning something from each job I go to - there’s always something new.” Ms Van Hulssen was previously a vet nurse and decided to become a paramedic because of her passion for medicine and the opportunity to help people. “Noosa’s the best station on the

IT’S not the ideal start to a writing career, but the death of a close friend saw Tewantin man Ian Mulville finally put pen to paper to produce his first novel, Full Circle. “I’ve always had this book in the back of my mind,” Ian said. “When my good friend, Dave, died of a heart attack at only 49, it was the catalyst. We all think we have time.” Released on 1 May, Full Circle follows the story of two English lads on the run after a job goes horribly wrong. Throw in an alluring brothel barmaid, a walk along the Camino, plus a relentless detective and Full Circle makes for perfect winter reading that will keep you wanting to know ‘what happens next?’ Full Circle is not only a great read, but also an insight into the author’s life as Ian admits the characters are based on himself and Dave’s adventures when growing up in London. “Dave and I grew up through our teens and twenties in London,” he said. “Dave worked for the metro police in the UK and the book follows some of our adventures. “A lot of the people I’ve met in my life also feature in the book.”

Where the magic happens - Ian Mulville writing at home. Written over a year, we asked Ian what it felt like to finally see his book published. “It is such a good feeling,” he said. “When there was the knock at the door and the first edition was delivered, I was in awe. Here it was. “It was tactile. I had something to show for my dedication to see through the highs and lows - to see it through to completion.” Ian said it can be scary putting your work out into the world, especially when the characters are based on both

yourself and a dear friend. “But you have to keep an open mind,” he said. “I am happy to learn from any criticism given to me. This is a learning experience for me.” But Ian isn’t taking time out to revel in his accomplishment with another book already in the making. “My next book is based in the Middle East as I spent a lot of time there working,” he said. You can find Ian’s book, Full Circle, on www.amazon. com.au.

Perfect autumn walk for pooches A PERFECT autumn morning attracted hundreds of dog owners and their beloved pooches to Noosaville on Sunday for the 2014 Million Paws Walk. The 2014 Million Paws Walk was one of many staged across the state in RSPCA Queensland’s biggest fundraising event of the year. Noosa Animal Care Centre manager and event co-ordinator, Nicole Cleary said she was delighted with the turnout. “The generosity and sense of community in Noosa never ceases to amaze me,” Nicole said. “We had 620 walkers and 352 dogs join us on Sunday morning and raised more than $5500 - a great result that will allow us to continue our work locally. “The Million Paws Walk really has become one of the great community events in Noosa. It seemed many proud owners were more than happy to be taken for a walk along the banks of the river on one of those picture postcard days.” Joining the walk were staff members from Cooroy, Marcoola and Tewantin Community Bank branches of Bendigo Bank and their families. The branches proudly support the Road Home van that is used to assist the RSPCA shelter at Noosa continue its great work on the Sunshine Coast. Through donation and registration for the walk, the vital funds raised will be used to assist in caring for more than 18,000 dogs that arrive at RSPCA animal care centres across QLD each year. RSPCA Queensland reports that the annual costs involved in caring for these dogs include:

Scan saves many a life TOILET humour can make kindergarten children giggle but for Australians over the age of 50, bowel cancer is a serious issue. According to Rotary Bowelscan, bowel cancer is the second most common cause of cancerrelated deaths in Australia, after lung cancer, and while it kills more Australians each year than breast or prostate cancer, early detection through screening can vastly improve survival rates. In the fight to reduce the impact of this disease, Rotary Bowelscan is making bowel screening kits available in community pharmacies until 31 May. Rotary Bowelscan is a pharmacy-based bowel cancer awareness, education and screening program that provides accessible screening kits for “average risk patients”. An average risk patient, according to Rotary Bowelscan, includes men and women aged 50 years and older with no symptoms, and no personal or family history of either bowel cancer or polyps. Following the use of a Rotary Bowelscan kit, all positive results are passed on to the patient’s doctor, who will initiate further investigations such as a colonoscopy. Bowelscan kits are available in your local pharmacy and are only $8.

community EVERY THIRD BITE WHEN did you last have so many bees in your citrus trees that you could hear them from metres away, or notice dozens of hover flies around your vegetable garden? What’s happening to our pollinators? One in every three bites of the food that we eat depends on honey bees for pollination. Bee numbers rise and fall for many reasons, but in recent years fingers have been pointed at neonicotinoid insecticides as possible culprits in this scarcity problem. On 23 May, guest speaker Rod Jamieson will examine the complex and alarming problem of pollinator scarcity. Rod will draw upon his extensive experience in the field of broad acre seed production to tease out the strongest threads in a tangled and frequently emotional debate. He’ll also provide information about actions that can be taken to maintain and multiply pollinating insect numbers. Come along to Noosa Parks Association’s Friday Environment Forum at the Environment Centre, Wallace Park, Noosaville to join the discussion. Coffee from 10am and the forum commences at 10.30am. Meet in the car park at 8.30am for Interpretive Birding. All welcome. Visit www.noosaparks.org.au for more information.

NATIONAL SENIORS

IT’S coming up roses ... well sunflowers, for the Peregian Beach College Early Learning Centre, which is proud to show off a beautiful garden created by students. The children and teachers planted sunflower seeds and have watched them grow into bright, tall flowers that now provide shade for storytime. The 3 to 5-year-olds have also planted a pizza garden and have watched with anticipation as the herbs and cherry tomatoes have grown over the past few weeks. Centre director and teacher Melanie Clare said the gardens have been a great learning experience for the children. “It has been a dynamic experience for the children and has involved so many aspects of children’s learning at the same time,” she said.

THE next meeting of the TewantinNoosa National Seniors will be held on Thursday, 22 May, at 1.15pm for 1.30pm start at the Noosa Catholic Hall, Moorindil Street, Tewantin. Guest speaker is Everald Compton, retired chairman of the Board of National Seniors Aust. Everyone is welcome. For inquiries contact Norm on 5474 0919.

UK ARTIST ADFAS Noosa presents renowned UK artist Ghislaine Howard, best known for her ground-breaking exhibition on pregnancy and birth A Shared Experience, which attracted much critical acclaim. Looking at works by both men and women of the same subject, painted during the same periods of history, Ghislaine will discuss if there a distinctive quality to paintings by women. The audience will see the world through the eyes of female painters and discover exceptional artists who are still little known today. The session is on Saturday 24 May at 3.45pm for a 4pm start at the St Mary’s Church Hall, 17 William Street, Tewantin. Bookings are essential, at a cost of $20 for nonmembers, through Carolyn Shannon on 5455 4749.

The sunflower garden provides shade for lunch time. “The children have watched something sprout from a seed, measured plant growth, watched how the flowers have attracted visitors like bees and are now watching the full cycle of life as the flowers die and produce their seeds for the next ‘crop’.

“The gardens have involved learning in science, maths, literacy and issues around sustainability”. The kindy also boasts a compost system and is also introducing a worm farm.

Up the Creek

What’s in a name?

I AM saddened that residents of Creek Road have been portrayed as unreasonable and seen to have a disregard for the elderly in our community. Noone wants to restrict access to public transport to any members of our community, especially retirees. The danger posed by buses on Creek Road is certainly not an “us against them” issue. As a long-time resident who cares greatly about my neighbourhood, I agree that Creek Road belongs to everyone. It is a small, narrow suburban road with no footpaths and no bus stops. Creek Road is shared by pedestrians, dogwalkers, cyclists, parents with prams, mobility scooters and cars. The road is used by residents as well as those who access the popular Weyba Creek reserve. Along with the right to use Creek Road comes the responsibility to do so safely. It is not safe or responsible for buses to use Creek Road as a convenient loop to avoid turning around elsewhere. Many incidents and near misses have been documented, while others have noted that the road dimensions do not allow for the frequent passage of heavy vehicles. Painting yellow lines to prevent vehicles parking is a simplistic way of dealing with very real risks. As a mature community, we need to agree on a sustainable solution; one that ensures citizens can access public transport in a way that does not cause harm to others. One solution might be the use of a turning circle, similar to that already used on the same bus route. It’s a shame that Noosa Council have no responsibility in this matter, as their input could help bring stakeholders together. Let’s just hope that it does not take a tragedy before MP Glenn Elms, Minister Scott Emmerson or Translink are compelled to take the safety of Noosa residents seriously! Bernadette Murphy, Noosaville.

I AM a relatively recent arrival to the Coast (seven years) and I still have not heard the correct way to pronounce “D’Aguilar”. I hear traffic reporters or newsreaders calling it “Dee-AG-you-lar”, when, to my mind, a basic knowledge of French would call it “Da-GWEElar”. If we went by the reporter’s version, we would need to change the Musketeer’s name from D’Artagnan (“Dar-TAN-yan”) to “Dee-ar-TAGnan” and the TV doctor, Dr John D’Arcy would be “Dee-ARKY”. So, what do the people who live along the Dee-ag-you-lar Highway expect it to be called? Rob Haylock, Peregian Springs.

Vision and rhetoric IT IS interesting to see billionaire Clive Palmer wade into the budget debate decrying the selfinterest of politicians, as his wish to develop the Galilee basin coal reserves, at the expense of the Great Barrier Reef was a major motivator for his foray into politics. And while his defence of aged pensioners is admirable, there is little vision to his rhetoric. The Federal Budget, coming after a fake “debt crisis” that is not borne out by facts such as OECD figures, amounts to a dumbing down and general sell-out of the Australian people. Who will put themselves deeply in debt, and pay interest on that debt, to take a university degree, or do an apprenticeship? Where are Australia’s tradespeople and professionals going to come from if we burden them under debt at the time in their lives when they need to get established and start a family? Without their skills and education Australia will slide rapidly from being a first world nation. This government, which has demolished the Ministry of Science, now wants to remove $148 million from the CSIRO, losing 400 jobs of our best and brightest. Could someone please explain to them that this wonderful Australian institution has been a gold mine for our country with its inventions and discoveries. Instead of properly funding our scientists, they are spending $250 million on the school chaplaincy program. This puts people with no counselling, training or qualifications into schools to deal with disturbed and vulnerable children, while pushing their own particular religious barrow, rather than placing real counsellors into our schools. In less that eight months, with great criticism from the IMF, this government has doubled our government debt. They are not good money managers. The cruelty, lack of vision, and general incompetence of this budget offering is staggering. Please bring on a double dissolution so that we can avert a social and fiscal disaster for our beloved country. Joy Ringrose, Pomona.

Not what he said SOME of the comments on the speech I made at the Conservative Club post-budget breakfast in Brisbane bear no resemblance to what I actually said. Read the speech on www.warrentruss.com <http://www.warrentruss.com/>and make your own judgement. I offered no criticism, passed no judgement, nor made any disrespectful remarks about pensioners and superannuants. Words like “squandering”, “blowing” and other inflammatory language were used by commentators and did not appear anywhere in my speech. They are not my words and they certainly do not reflect the intention or tone of my speech. I respect the right of pensioners and superannuants to make their own decisions about the way in which they use their income. I do not presume to provide such gratuitous advice to anyone. People work their entire lives and quite rightly expect that the age pension will be available to them at the end of their working lives as a safety net. The purpose of my address was to explain the budget and why the government needed to make important decisions to ensure Australia’s future. My concern is to ensure the sustainability of the age pension so it will always be available to those who need it. In Australia, between 2010 and 2050 the number of people aged 65 to 84 is expected to double and the number of people 85 and older is expected to quadruple. One in three people born in Australia today can expect to live until they are 100. Even Bill Shorten said in his budget reply speech that there would only be two and a half people in the workforce for every person over 65 within 50 years. The age pension currently takes up 10 per cent of all Commonwealth spending - $40 billion this year, but it will rise to $72 billion in a decade on current trends - and it will keep rising as our population ages. We have to make sure that safety net is secure, and capable in the future of catching the people who need it. I have the utmost respect for senior Australians who have worked hard throughout their lives, contributing to our country and their community. They certainly deserve the support of the Government in their retirement years and my speech makes this point clearly. It is regrettable that this was not properly reported. Warren Truss, Wide Bay MP and Deputy Prime Minister.

Church of the wild KEN Lynn’s unjustified and unsupported insults to Case Smit and the Galileo Movement (Noosa Today Letters, 8 May) constitute unacceptable behaviour in a civil society that unfortunately typifies behaviour of so many believers in the United Nations’ “Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) Cult” not science, but better called ‘Post

Normal Science’ that has become a false religion - environmentalism. These AGW alarmists, in not having a single piece of scientific empirical proof of human generation of carbon dioxide, CO2, having any measurable impact on global atmospheric temperature that will have catastrophic impact on climate, are forced to resort to ad homonym, McCarthyism bluster and untruths to respond to opinions that do not comply with AGW Alarmist policies and relay on having unjustified appeal to authority to be granted to them by the innocent public. Readers should be aware that the AGW alarmists have no scientific empirical evidence to factually provide a ‘succinct explanation’ to support the AGW (now climate change) argument; over $100 billion - yes - one hundred thousand million dollars of Western world taxpayers’ money having been distributed as grants, that have regrettably corrupted so many previously highly respected research organisations, and yet not provided proof of the AGW argument; delivering only outputs from problematic computer modelling that fail to follow the scientific method to support their hypothesis, but have been accepted unquestioned by the main media as ‘scientific fact’ and blessed by naive western governments. The AGW truth is that we are observing what will finally be revealed to be a United Nations devised hoax of gigantic magnitude being a wealth redistribution vehicle masquerading as Environmentalism and described in Agenda 21. The great eighteenth century philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer, made an important observation about truth: All truth goes through three stages: first it is ridiculed, then it is vigorously opposed and finally it is accepted as self-evident. (e.g. Remember the change in the professionally long incorrectly accepted causes of stomach ulcers - proof came from diligent research that followed the scientific method). The AGW sceptics are telling the truth and I think that as we are at stage two in this matter, I look forward to when Ken acknowledges having been a victim of the scam, rereads the second law of thermodynamics and apologises to Case Smit or maybe accepts a challenge to publicly debate him and/or other Galileo Movement members on anthropogenic global warming after Case returns from overseas. John Smeed, Noosaville.

It’s your life COULD the media please stop saying we will have to work until we are 70? You only have to work until you have enough money to be able to stop working. Don’t forget that the majority of today’s workers have superannuation. For many this will enable them to fully or partially fund their own retirement. Plan for your future - live more simply along the way or work for longer. The choice is yours. Margaret Mourik, Peregian Beach.

Budget bingo I CAN’T find anything wrong with the Federal Budget. Firstly because I am not a financial expert and also because I don’t play bingo and as it’s the “13th” it’s only unlucky for some. E. Wright, Sunrise Beach.

Gettin’ hot in here WOODY Dass (NT, 15 May) “quotes” the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (2013), apparently in an attempt to refute my claim that global warming has continued over the last 17 years. Now, I’m quite happy to be corrected by the IPCC, but is that really what’s happened here? Here’s the version of the “quotation” from Mr Dass’s letter: “The long-term climate model simulations show a trend (increasing) in globalmean surface temperature from 1951 to 2012

I would like to thank the lovely man who helped me pick up my shopping when my bag broke, while shopping at Noosa Civic. I could see you were in a rush, so it was very kind of you to stop and help. There needs to be more people like you in the world.

Right on to the Food & Wine Fest! We took our kids with us for the first time this year and they had a ball tasting the different foods and watching the cooking demonstrations.

Shame on the group of kids who tore through the footpath on all sorts of boards and contraptions. You scared many elderly people who were walking.

that agrees with the observed trend. There are, however, differences between simulated and observed trends (meaning no increase) over periods as short as 10 to 15 years (e.g., 1998 to 2012).” The “quotation” comes from the IPCC Physical Science Basis Summary for Policymakers, Section D.1. The trouble is, the words “(increasing)” and “(meaning no increase)” do not appear in the original. And the phrase “(very high confidence)” does appear, after the words “... observed trend”. The alterations have the effect of making it appear that the IPCC supports Mr Dass’s position when nothing could be further from the truth. Mr Dass’s letter doesn’t contain any indication that the “quotation” has been altered, or any explanation for why it was done. Is that honest? Graham Coghill, Marcus Beach.

Bin thinkin’ ALL those colorful bins everywhere are a wonderful reminder to us to recycle. But do you really know what to put in which bin? Where do you put a take away coffee cup, a fish and chips container or a bottle with residue of food or liquid? For recycling you have to rinse and clean your containers, bottles etc and take the lids of otherwise the whole lot is contaminated and cannot be recycled. I see children looking at those colorful bins and desire to put something in every bin. I think there is more information needed, more education. Does anybody know, where all those bins go to be recycled? And by whom? And how? The “Yellow Bin” tells you to rinse and clean everything you put in and remove the lids. The pictures you see on the sticker have all the lids and tops of the bottles on. Confused? I use a lot of water to clean yoghurt containers, tins etc. Is the water consumption worse? I wonder.

In line for fine wine AS THE sun set over the Noosa River last Friday, the Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club came to life for the Taste the First wine night. Hosted by New Zealand wine company, Matua, guests were treated to Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Merlot varieties, all produced in

the land of the long white cloud. Matua Wines grand ambassador Bill Spence conducted the evening and offered a deep knowledge of New Zealand wines. Bill has been described as part of the fabric of New Zealand winemaking

history, with his father having planted vines in West Auckland before Bill and his brother began making wines in 1974. NYRC manager Ashley Little said the night was a great success and the recently refurbished club was the perfect venue for such a classy night.

ten with Bonnie O’Connell

Matua Wines grand ambassador Bill Spence, NYRC manager Ashley Little and Commodore Bernie Bradley.

What was the first/best concert you attended? The Grateful Dead ... I think. If you are a ‘Dead Head’, no explanation needed.

If you could witness any event - past, present or future - what would it be? That’s a hard one - I don’t know.

What was your favourite book as a child? Go Dog Go by Dr Seuss.

What would your last meal on Earth be? Beer, wine and cheese - I think that covers the basic food groups.

If you could live through one particular era, what would it be? Again, a bit hard to come up with one.

If you could be someone else for a week, who would it be? My dogs and horses.

Who would be your top five dinner party guests, and why? Robin Williams, Steve Martin, Michael Buble, Kristen Wiig, Meryl Streep, Derek O’Connell and Tessa Selby sorry, I have trouble counting (refer to question 1).

What is your most memorable sporting moment? Riding in a class at a horse show with the Olympic trials and having the winning time.

What was your most embarrassing moment? My horse tripping and me falling off at the above show. Luckily we made it through the timers so we still won.

THE cab dropped us outside the Hotel Plaza at the edge of Old Havana’s splendid Parque Central. A group of men in black suits from the hotel made no effort to help us with our bags, and then stood in the doorway chatting while we tried to get around them. Once inside, however, we pushed our luggage into a corner and looked across a vast lobby of tiled floors, potted palms and Roman columns. May I suggest that if you ever find yourself checking into the Hotel Plaza in Old Havana, you do as we did and spend a while taking in the beauty of its 105-year-old colonial splendour, because this is as good as it gets. It’s a downhill run from this point forward. We were taken to our third floor room in the hotel’s only operational lift and led down a long corridor of paint-spattered tiles, as though someone had painted the walls during one of the hotel’s many renovations but had forgotten to clean up the mess. The room itself was tiny, filled up pretty much by a sagging double bed covered with a threadbare bedspread. An ancient air-conditioner dripped water onto the floor but otherwise didn’t work. There was a bullet hole in the bathroom window. Two power points hung loose from the walls and flamed up rather ominously when you put anything in them. The door leading to the terrace hung by one hinge and wouldn’t close properly, but at least we had a view of a small square, and if I hung over the railing I could see El Floridita, Hemingway’s old haunt, at the end of the street. I kept telling myself, position is everything. The Plaza has no wi-fi and its “Cybercafe” in the lobby never opened during our stay. The Plaza has no pool either, but guests are allowed to use the rooftop pool at the Parque Central across the street. We soon fell into the habit of

Taken for a ride in a Buick. using the facilities of the surrounding hotels for just about everything, returning to the Plaza to sleep only. Old Havana itself was a kaleidoscope of colour, a new assault on the senses every few steps along its cobbled streets and alleys. Crusty old mamas sucking on foot-long cigars, outrageously over or under dressed gay boys camping it up along the Obispo strip, beautiful young girls strutting their stuff in the tightest outfits, neon tube tops

and butt huggers everywhere you looked. And the music was everywhere, bands spilling out of the tiniest bars and cantinas, brilliant salsa dancing couples spinning between the tables. Havana is full of ancient American touring cars, painted bright green or purple or red, patched up here and there and belching black smoke into the air. They are an ever present reminder of the good old bad old days of the Batista regime, when Cuba was an American puppet and high rollers would come over from Miami for their weekends of decadence. They are also a reminder that after more than half a century of communism, there is a lot in Cuba that doesn’t work. We climbed into the back of a 1959 Buick convertible for a city tour, but the thing only made it around the corner before it gurgled and died, so we were trans-

ferred to a 1961 Bonneville. The tour was $35, which seemed fair enough, but our guide, a sharpie named Noel, systematically fleeced us out of another $50 for various non-existent goods and services before dumping us at the port front when I decided I wasn’t parting with any more money. “He’s crazy, that one,” our driver said as he took us back to the hotel. The city was exciting and intoxicating, but also a little exhausting, so we sought refuge most days swimming and sunning on the roof of the Parque Central, before heading off to El Floridita in the late afternoon to sink a few mojitos and catch some of the best music in town. After a few days cruising the music bars of Old Havana, you can get the impression that there are only two songs in Cuba - Besame Mucho and Guantanamero - but at the Floridita you can experience everything, from mellow folk to raunchy salsa. Papa Hemingway’s statue greets you at the far end of the bar, from which position he can leer at the pretty girls as they enter, which I’m sure he did, when he was real. El Floridita is rough, raucous and stinks of the Havana stogies that everyone smokes, all the time, even during meals. But it has retained a lot of old world charm. Unfortunately they don’t have rooms.

NOOSA

Dining Andrew and Helen Haughton.

Celebrity chefs descend on Noosa THE 2014 Noosa International Food and Wine Festival took over the Noosa Heads Lions Park for three glorious days of food, wine and entertainment. The annual festival saw celebrity chefs such as Matt Preston, Neil Perry and Adriano Zumbo rub

Julien creating at JAAN.

French chef a friend of Australia By JOLENE OGLE PHOTOS of a large, stone home nestled at the base of a snowcapped mountain illuminate Julien Royer’s phone screen as he proudly shows off his family home. “Where I am from, it is very green, very peaceful, very quiet,” Julien says of Cantal, central France. “I was very fortunate to live here as a child. I grew up in the environment where people are cooking. My grandmum, everyone is cooking because we have a farm and we use the produce from the farm.” Julien flicks through more photos of the family farm while chatting with Noosa Today at the Noosa International Food and Wine Festival. Fluffy rabbits, bees for hon-

ey and a donkey, all come to the screen. “The donkey we don’t eat - he is our friend,” Julien laughs. From such humble beginnings, it is clear to see why Julien has such a deep love for seasonal produce and artisan products. Voted “The One to Watch” in 2013, Julien is now the Chef de Cuisine of one of Singapore’s best restaurants, JAAN. But, for this young chef, it was never a career choice, but a way of life. “To me it is not a job. It was not a decision of career; it is more the way we live. We live, we cook. We cook, we live,” he says. Julien first began to focus his skills when he enrolled in culinary school at 16 years old. After graduation, Julien entered the kitchens

Creating food is a way of life for Chef Julien Royer, at the Noosa International Food & Wine Festival. of Michel Bras and Bernard Andrieuz at their Michelin starred restaurants, armed with an under-

standing of how pure and organic ingredients are best for creating fresh dishes. A belief that continues to guide him as Julien cooks with smallscale, artisan products at JAAN. “What I sell in my restaurant, the purity and the origin of the products is good quality,” he says. “We order and they send us a box of vegetables. We don’t know what we are going to get. So we build the menu to accompany whatever arrives. So, we are printing the menu every service, according to what we have. This is how I cook. This is how I learnt.” “My grandmother, she would go to the garden and she didn’t say ‘oh, I am going to get some tomato and capsicum’. No, she came back

and said this is zucchini and this is onion. We are going to eat zucchini and onion. And to me, it makes sense.” It’s an unconventional technique that seems to be working, with Julien securing JAAN restaurant a platter of awards and accolades including the Award of Excellence for G Restaurant Awards 2013, Certificate of Excellence 2012 from TripAdvisor, as well as the appointment of Friend of Australia by Tourism Australia. And a friend of Australia, he sure is. Noosa is the most beautiful place in Australia, according to Julien. “They say you save the best for last, and this is the best,” he says. “This place is so beautiful.” 1134713-DJ20-14

sport

League juniors play hard rugby Under 7 White UNDER 7 White played an excellent Women in League round against Caboolture. As always, the boys turned up jumping out of their skin. This enthusiasm was then transferred on to the footy field. Lachlan Ward, Bailey Hozier, Cooper Drinnan and Sam Proctor all did a sensational job handling the dummy half and first receiver roll. The rest of the team were great in keeping the ruck area clear. Lachlan Ward scored a fabulous try from the starting tap. Lukas Byers turned up ready to tackle today and deservedly took home Player of the Match. All the boys were awesome in defence and attack today. Under 7 Yellow UNDER 7 Yellow played a hard fought game against Stanley Rivers. Kaleb Byers earned Player of the Match for his hard runs up the middle gaining plenty of ground for his team. Keayahn Brim put his body on the line, making devastating tackles against the opposition. Kyrone O’Donnell, Matthew Christensen and Tyran Malone scored outstanding tries but, more importantly, showed guts and courage in the way they led with their tough defence. Under 7 Blue IT was the best game Under 7 Blue has played all season and every player gave everything they had from start to finish. Nathan Jones earned Player of the Match for a great try in the corner and putting in a gutsy effort. Outstanding attacking from Asher Anderson saw him score plenty of tries today and not to be outdone, Taj Brumley matched him with enthusiasm and energy, especially in his defence. No Stanley Rivers player was safe from the hard hitting Jaxon Smith who showed textbook tackling, rattling bones and shaking heads in disbelief at the way he is improving week after week. Under 8 ANOTHER outstanding display of footy by our little legends today. They played two games against two Stanley Rivers teams. The boys ran the ball very hard with some great runs from Cohyn North and Joe Dwyer. Also some strong hit ups from Nathaniel Noe and Ziah Clements. The team worked really hard in defence with some great tackling displays from Josh Palmer, Hamish Cook and Benny Graf, also a great display of ball running from Jed Danton, all round a very impressive game from all of our boys. Such a pleasure to coach this great group of kids. If these boys can stick together as a team for years to come, then the mighty Noosa Pirates are in very good hands. Under 9 White THE boys played Caloundra, in a return clash of last week’s game. There were some big runs from the forwards and some hard chasing from the backs. Coach Isaac reminded the boys that they need to stick to their instructions, and to be more enthusiastic off the line. A hard encounter was served up from the Caloundra boys, and Player of the Match went to Kaleb Hart for his great tackling, where he threw himself into many tackles without any fear. Under 9 Blue IT was great to have a game of footy

at our home grounds this weekend. The side took on a very tough and well drilled Stanley Rivers team and had to try very hard to remain in the game. Mitch Gleeson was a tackling machine, with the support of Ryan-Fielding Smith. Nathaniel Noe did lots of strong hit ups, and it was great to see Kye Brumley having a few good runs and even offloading. The forwards Tammin Lange and Liam Robson-Suares took the ball up hard and proved hard for the opposition to tackle. Joel Broomhall was strong and consistent in all aspects of the game today, earning himself Player of the Match. It’s important for all players to come to training week after week, to learn and practise skills which are vital to playing the game. This then makes it easier for the kids at Saturday’s match to know and understand the ’set moves’ which have been learnt at training the previous week. Thanks to the dads who helped out with the game, their support of this team is very much appreciated. Kye Brumley who was touch judge in the U9 white game did well.

Wet weather proves a spoiler WITH the wet weather, a number of games had to be cancelled due to ground closures, but with some games transferred to the ever reliable Dolphins Oval, a few Noosa teams still managed to take to the field last weekend. Action from Under 10 Blue. side finished on a high note by denying Kawana anymore points. Best on grounds was Dylan Cross, best tackler Ethan Condon, most hit ups William Lindsay. Special mention to Dan Sinclair who is having surgery on Tuesday to fix his ear drum. Next week the side is up against Caboolture A’s on Friday at 6.30pm.

Under 10 White CALOUNDRA travelled to Noosa to play Noosa White this weekend. The boys are starting to work together as a team with Ty, Jesi and Cooper trying really hard to stop their opponents. For Jesi’s second week of footy he did a great job of tackling and running for his team and was awarded Player of the Match for his efforts. Thanks also, to all the Women-inLeague. Under 10 Blue THE Blue boys were at home this week against a tough Stanley Rivers side. Their tackling was awesome this week with Ben U, Curtis, Dan and Harry stopping the opposition. Jaxon did more than one epic run down the field where no-one has a hope of catching him earning him Player of the Match. Thanks to all the Women-inLeague. Under 11 Gold AFTER a big week of training the Under 11 Gold boys were up against a very strong Caloundra team. Caloundra scored the first points quickly after the start of the game, but the Pirates fought back and were ahead by the 12th minute. Caloundra had some very fast players and by half time they were leading 18-6. The coach must have had a good word to the boys, because after the break the Pirates came back hard, some great moves forward from Javier Iriondo, Lachlan Flett and the unstoppable Francis Tinney, combined with some fantastic defence from Aston Steele, Taj Johnstone and Liam Trevanion. But the star of the day was Jackson Beaumont, taking all four tries for the team. The final whistle blew with the score 22-20 to the Noosa Pirates. Under12A IN blustery conditions down at Kawana, the side lost the toss and in turn had to run into a 20-point wind in the first half. The first half turned out to be a real arm wrestle. Early on Kawana had all the possession, but we hung in there through some great commitment in defence. Ethan Condon was a stand out as usual, making all his tackles count. The boys attitude with the ball was very impressive as the side completed well over 80 per cent in the first half. A costly one-on-one miss saw Kawana score a full-field try, 4-0.

Under 13 Bs. Nearing half time, the side was on the attack, thanks mainly to some big runs from Willem Lindsay, P J Hill and Kai Vincitorio and looking real good, until unfortunately a kick went wide which saw Kawana beat the side wide and yet score another length of the field try, 10-0. Right on half time we spilt a ball on our line which saw Kawana score out wide on the siren. Halftime 14-0. With the wind behind their backs in the second half, the game plan was simply complete with sets and kicks long. The side stuck to this early which resulted in a nice try to Dan Sinclair. 14-6. Looking good and the side was all over them, but a cheap penalty and illdiscipline led to another Kawana try, 20-6. Now the side had to play catch up football, which goes two ways. Unfortunately for the side today, it went ugly as it did not complete the sets with long kicks and Kawana seemed to get the 50/50 calls. The side had to work the ball out of its own half and it handed over the ball early in the tackle count due to bad ball security which led to another Kawana try off the scrum, 24-6. Not to be outdone, Ethan Condon finished the game strongly with numerous solid runs which resulted in Floyd Nowill running all but the length of the field off a brilliant pass from Dylan Cross which led to the side’s second try to PJ Hill. 24-12. The

Under 12B CONFIDENCE is brimming in the Under 12 Blue team as the boys begin to learn what it’s like to play possession football. Coach Paul Dwyer asked the boys for their best efforts in the first 10 minutes and that’s exactly what he got. Noosa jumped out to a 20 – nil lead over Caloundra Black at the half way mark and kept the foot on the accelerator all through the second half. A special mention this week goes to the effort of Aden Jenkins and Sam Dwyer. Noosa would like to wish a speedy recovery to a few already injured Caloundra players. Under 13A THE boys picked up where they left off last week with a dominant display in the first 20 minutes. Plenty of possession resulted in an early try to Lachlan Turner, who has made a huge improvement in his first season of Rugby League. The Pirate boys kept the points coming with a try to Zane Keen. Beautiful “soft hands” from Jake Armitage to a hard running Oliver Spring resulted in more points. Jake provided several more opportunities with some smart ball play, but was let down by his runners either being too early, too late or on the wrong angle. If some options are given him, there will be more tries scored. The Caboolture boys didn’t give up and came back into the game on the back of some alleged dubious calls by the the referee including a penalty try. The rest of the match became a seesawing affair with both teams having their chance to close the game out. But a strong run and quick play by Marcus Hooper left a broken defensive line for Clyde Whitford to score the match winner. Man of the Match went to Lachlan Turner whose attack on the wing is now as good as his defence and resulted in two tries. Also, Kurt Gadd, who arrived late to the game but topped the tackle count and scored a try in probably his best performance since taking up the game.

U10 Noosa Fins 39 d St Andrews 12 St Andrews did well to hold the Fins off until the second half when the onslaught began. Inspired by strong drives from Joe Rowles and Joe Siemon alike, Noosa dominated. Jarrah Charlesworth and Josh Whitehill both enjoyed good spells of possession and an unforgiving display from Jason Burns earned him two tries. Another Lachie Dudgeon hat-rick and tries from James Gelling and Ethan Pohlner sealed off a great display. Try scorers: Lachie Dudgeon (3), Jason Burns (2), James Gelling, Ethan Pohlner. Domino’s Pizza Player of the Match was Jason Burns U10 Noosa Reds 5 - Grammar 24 Noosa worked really hard in defence today against a determined Grammar side. Some great tackles from Noosa and a well deserved try from Jackson Westphal. Domino’s Pizza Player of the Match was Patrick Breen for some seriously good tackling. The number of games played over the weekend were also reduced due to the Sunshine Coast Junior Stingrays trials being held, with many players given an opportunity to show their talents in front of the selectors. Squads should be confirmed early this week. Under 12s, 13s and 14 trials were held at Dolphin Oval on Sunday with an open Under 16s trial held at Caloundra. Under 12s trials featured many boys, and at least one girl, turning up to impress. A large Noosa contingent were named to take part. They included: Jack Robson, Amy Brice, Gus Fitzgerald, Adam Johnston, Ethan Williams, Lachie Franklin, Matthew Brice, Sam O’Connor, Christian Vidic, Kye Atkinson, Connor Chilver, Seb Whitehill, Charlie Patterson, Michael Cuttliffe and Jack Frey Under 13s and 14s took part in a series of Probables vs Possibles matches. A number of Noosa players took their opportunity to impress selectors. Players selected for trials included: Under 13s - Harry Barnett, Luke Bourne, Jaydyn Hebin-Botha, Liam Manssen, Yvahn Allsworth and Tavita Roma Under 14s - Adam Jurisevic, Jesse Russell, Matthew Leo, Paddy Sobey, Alex Moses, John Gelling and Leo Enkelman Good luck to all players who are selected in Stingrays squads for the upcoming representative competitions to be held in July.

Close tussle in the men’s triples

Hard to get them off the field

Noosa Heads Bowls TWO more club championships were decided at Noosa last Sunday. The Men’s Triples was a close tussle all the way, with the match being decided on the last of the 31 ends. Team Sanday came from two shots down to score a four and win the match by two in a real thriller. Joining skip Ian Sanday were Neil Walsh, lead and Cliff Hackett, second. The scoreline was 31-29 over Kevin Luscombe’s team. Pat Teale skipped the winning Ladies Four with team mates Marie McCall, Verle McComb and Ursula Ford. They scored a solid win over Jan Burkitt’s four, 26 shots to 10. The format of having two finals on a Sunday afternoon again proved popular with a good roll up of members in attendance for the action. Tuesday Men’s again saw the Sanday-Walsh pair scoring over Paul Rieck and Ric McDonald. Jan Burkitt and Jan Zemler took the prize on Wednesday. Friday Jackpot Pairs was abandoned after only two ends were played, when a 20mm deluge in 20 minutes flooded the greens. There were much finer conditions for Saturday bowls however when the Triples team led by John ChanningPearce scored the biggest margin and the Pairs section was won by Stephen and Jennifer Bowie. - The Chalker

SOCCER EAGLES Under-6 Noosa Gold UNDER-6 Noosa Gold defeated Bli Bli 5-3, these little ones have the spirit of soccer in them, playing really well as a team passing and sharing the ball time. All first-time players they all play well together, and have only lost one game all season which they are very proud of. The team turn up to every practice and are always there to play on Saturdays… sometimes not wanting to come off the field! Under-7 Black The Under 7 Black team were back in the game this week defeating Pacific Lutheran 5-1. Sammy Poulton and Alaska Rosenkranz had a great game in attack with Alaska booting though four strong goals and Sammy capturing the fifth. One of this season’s new players, Keiran Dow took home the encouragement award this week having a few great runs with the ball, showing how all that practice and training pays off. Eamon Shamansky and Joe Maskall did a fabulous job in goals stopping all bar one the entire game. It was a great team effort all round for the Under-7 Black’s. Under-7 Gold Noosa Gold under 7s played a cracking game against the Bli Bli Chargers, unfortunately the chargers came out on top with the end score 4-2. Xavier Attard played like a super star and took home the player of the match, after scoring his first goal. The other goal was scored by the force of nature that is Harrison ‘the Bolt’ Howard. Reuben Taylor wowed the crowd with his best game yet. Under-11 Gold The Under 11s played Palmwoods Gladiators in what was a comfortable 5-1 win. Noosa gold worked well together in a team effort victory. Coach’s award went to Tyler Ackerman who had a great game playing in defence and mid field while player of the week went to Cassady Hillegers who is showing great improvement. Under-12 Gold U12 Noosa Gold had a very tough game on Saturday when they came up against the current A Division leaders, Caloundra Gold. Noosa put up a courageous effort and played hard, particularly in the second half when they kept Caloundra from scoring for nearly the whole half. Goalkeepers Callum Wallis and Jay Medhurst did a brilliant job and stopped many attempts, but the final score was a very skilled Caloundra 11 defeating Noosa 1. Flynn Sperlich scored the only goal for Noosa. Under-13 Gold Noosa played against the Immanuel Vipers at Caloundra on Saturday and winning 2-0. Noosa goals were scored by Elliot Williams and Dre Murphy with Dre being named Player of the Week. This Saturday 24 May is a home game for the Noosa Eagles. Come down to Good Shepherd playing fields and support the kids.

Cooroy Bowls REIGNING Mixed Pairs Champions B. Winkler and R. Hassall were defeated in the first round by J. Ainscough and T. Charles. The narrow

margin of two points and the low score of 17-15 reflect the calibre of the game. B. and M. Coventry had a very close game winning by one point against N. Duffield and S. Hands. Other winners E. Reece and G. Green defeated L. and D. Hateley-James, whilst A. Lerch and B. Mahoney won against M. Bottomley and R. Butler. Tuesday Jackpot Pairs was won by two teams. G. Green and J. Kirkman and R. Butler, G. Duffield and F. Bravo shared the prize money from runners-up A. Lerch and J. Donald. Tag Team had a very exciting win on the last bowl of the evening against Bushrangers in the High Rollers comp. “I don’t believe it!” was heard to resound loudly in the club after the game. Settlement is due on 30 May so next week will see many final games for the season. The club’s future is still uncertain as we negotiate the lease of the greens with the new owner - the end of an era may be nigh. No longer will Cooroy Bowls Club exist. On a happier note though, a new club known as the Cooroy Community Bowls Club Inc is now recruiting members. Fingers crossed we will have a home. - Julie Ainscough Cooroy Business Bowls THE Cooroy Business Bowls competition has been held over the last 12 weeks at the Cooroy Bowls Club. The finals have been run and Frank’s Gym were winners with 44 points overall. Jacobson’s and Pages were runners-up with 43 points. Results: SEC 42 pts, Fossils 40 pts, Cooroy RSL 38 pts, Belvedere

36 pts, Thunderbirds 34 pts, Cooroy Hotel and Gettin Plastered 32 Pts, Bonnells, Renderers and Treble Clefs 31 Pts, Craft 27 Pts. Tewantin Noosa Bowls THE men’s and ladies’ selectors are gearing up for the forthcoming 2014 Pennant season. Lists have been placed on the noticeboards for bowlers to place their names indicating their interest to be selected. With the District deciding in what divisions the teams will compete the club anticipates fielding strong combinations. Training times and other details will appear on a regular basis. The weekly competitions were subject to some very wet weather with both the Tuesday and Friday games washed out. It was only possible for the training on Monday, Wednesday’s Priceline Chemist (Tewantin), and championship matches on Thursday and Saturday to be played. Winners on Wednesday were Con O’Rourke, P. Hutchison, Wayne Langham 25 ends +4 from Alan Shaw, Bryn Whitcombe, Bob Schofield 20 ends +4. The Ladies’ A Grade Singles championship semi finals resulted in a comfortable win for Pam Wald against Carol McAskill. Pat Digby and Evelyn Coghlan had a very close game with the match decided on the last bowl of the final end. Pam and Pat will playoff for the final next Thursday at 1pm. The Men’s B Singles championship semi finals were won convincingly by Bryn Whitcombe from John Mohr and Trevor Crosby who defeated Peter Richardson. The final between Bryn and Trevor will be on

Pomona Bowls THE Dodt Cup was played at Albert Bowls over the weekend with Pomona emerging victorious. The game on Saturday saw three rink wins over Kandanga. Results: Singles - S. Chandler. Pairs - G. Hodder/K. King. Fours - B. Andrews/R. Goulding/D. Millar/P Gray-Spence/A. King. The semi finals saw a win for S. Chandler and the pairs team while the fours team lost. The finals between Pomona and Cooloola Coast saw the pairs and fours victorious to give the Dodt Cup to Pomona. The semi-finals of the Ladies Triples Championship got underway with one team on both rinks getting away to a fast start, but it was not to be either team’s day. Results: J. Muir/D. O’Neill/T. Camp 24 d J. Mita/G. Rohde/J. Rabjohns 17. V. O’Connor/J. Smith/G. Bible 29 d O. Mackellar(sub)/J. Price/P. Roebuck 15. The social game was won by J. Farr and D. Millar. Twilight bowls saw S. Hands and A. King win on a count-back from P. Roebuck and B. Andrews. - Hidden Jack

Lions equal the best in Noosa v Buderim THE Under-17 Division 1 game was the highlight of the weekend’s games at the Giraween Sports Complex with the young Noosa lads coming up against top of the ladder Buderim. Things were going to script for the visitors up 2-0 in the first 30 minutes, but they weren’t counting on the determined efforts of the Noosa side who brought the game back to level scores at half time. Noosa came out in the second half fired up, found their touch with the ball and started to really pressure the Buderim defence. With 20 minutes to go it seemed their efforts were to no avail with the visitors scoring three more times against the flow of play. Not giving up Noosa continued to apply the pressure and was

rewarded with two good goals. With only a minute to go Buderim had stacked its defence but great team work allowed Noosa to score an exceptional leveller in the final minute drawing with the top team 5-5. The coastal women gave the Nambour Yandina United (NYU) ladies a football lesson in the second half of the opening game on Friday night. The Noosa Coastal women’s White team have only lost once this year and it was against NYU. With a 0-0 scoreline at half time it looked possible again. While Noosa was dominant in the first half the NYU keeper had kept them scoreless with some incredible saves. The Noosa women went out in the second half determined to prove they were the better team, and succeeded with fly-

ing colours. NYU had no answer for Noosa’s flowing football, pass after pass led to wave after wave of attack, ultimately resulting in a 6-0 win - Ursula Hughson bagging four goals and Simone Richter two. Noosa was assured of at least one victory at home on Friday night as two Noosa over-35 sides clashed. Billed as a David versus Goliath scenario, the newly established Noosa O35 Whites came up against the multi-premiership winning Noosa O35 Blue Goliaths on Friday night. The Noosa Whites managed to contain the Blues for what seemed like a very long 15 seconds. Michael Cookman taking advantage of what some described as a gale force wind to drive one above the keeper’s head from about 45 metres out only three touches into the game. The Whites

however buckled down dominating possession for the next 15 minutes. The experience of Noosa Blues shone through and living up to their Goliath reputation slamming home goal after goal as time wore on. The driving wind and rain subsided just in time for the second half to begin and the advantage enjoyed by the Blues dissipating as the luckless Whites turned to face northward. Noosa the winner - by a lot. Other convincing winners were the Under-13 Division 1 side against Beegees and the Under-15 Division 1 boys who had a 7-2 win over Cooroora United. The Premier Men’s games were postponed due to weather damage to the Maroochydore fields and will be played this coming Saturday.

Children are the focus BETWEEN THE FLAGS RON LANE

IF THERE is a better way to bring the people of a community together than helping children in need, I would like to know what it is. On Saturday morning, for example, at 8am on Noosa’s main beach representatives of various local organisations were in attendance for the last fun session of this season for the Noosa Seahorse Nippers. Fire and Rescue Department, Council, Lifesavers, Rotary, Life Saving Australia, plus volunteer helpers and families were all in attendance to help, observe and, above all, to acknowledge the great work done by the organisers of the Seahorse Nippers. It could have not been better, small safe surf for board and ski riding and a big sandy area for beach games. Away from the maddening crowd there were examples of small children sitting with their personal carers away from the noise of the crowd, quietly building sand castles, digging holes or simply playing in the waves on the waters edge; but always under the watchful of their carer. Ralph Devlin, deputy president of Life Saving Australia said, “This is just fantastic. What the Noosa Club has done for these kids has made us all proud and to think it is now starting to spread interstate is just incredible”. Co-ordinator of the Seahorse Nip-

pers Steve Mawby said, “The club at Redcliffe is now getting underway and Dickie Beach at this stage looks like being next. The visit from the Collaroy club members was successful and they went home to Sydney, fully confident that their club will get behind the concept.” At the end of Saturday events, all Seahorses were presented with a club T-shirt and a certificate by ironman legend Darren Mercer and Councilor Frank Pardon. Then all the children were shown the patrol all terrain vehicle and its purpose was explained. Speaking on behalf of the club, Mawby thanked all the workers and parents. “In extending our thanks, a big thank you to all our sponsors and in particular thank you to Councilor Frank Pardon and the council for arranging the parking for the families bringing the children. This has been of utmost importance. Also thank you to the National Council of Life Saving for taking the time and the interest to see firsthand what the Seahorses are all about”. After the formalities, the real fun started when the big red Fire and Rescue truck arrived at the beach. Brought to the beach by Station Officer Phil Bowden and his team, the Nippers went up close and personal, opening the doors for a good look inside. The fire hoses were then turned on and not only did the children see how they work, but also those who were game stood next to the firemen and helped direct the nozzle. Officer Bowden who is also a veteran lifesaver with some 30

Darren Mercer OAM presents awards at end of the Seahorse Nipper Program. years’ experience said, “We are all a part of the community and this is the least we can do.” The showcase of the Australian lifesaver to the general public is and always will be the beach patrols. But with changing times, the people are now working more within the community away from the flags. With the high standard of training now available

within our clubs, it is only right that the expertise obtained should be used for the benefit of those in special need. The Seahorse Nippers is a classic example. With regard to the next Seahorse program Mawby said, “We are very happy with our progress and we are looking forward to staging our next session in September this year.

Grice graces hall of fame From page 36 This medal won in 1986 was just the start and now in this the 2014 season she is still coaching. Her tally of medals during that period of 27 years is a staggering 30 Gold, 18 Silver and 5 Bronze Medals. Again quoting from the submission, between 2001 and 2013, Lenore has not failed to take home a First Aid Australian Championship in each of these 13 years. On three of these occasions Lenore coached three teams to the Gold. Along the way because of her work, not only in the coaching arena, but also inside her two clubs, she has received the following recognition; 1990 Life Member Noosa Heads SLSC; 2003 Life Member Sunshine Coast Branch; 1997 World Lifesaving Citation; 2005 Silver Certificate of Recognition for outstanding voluntary contribution and dedication to the advancement and promotion of women in Surf Lifesaving and 2005 SLSQ Coach of the Year. Despite being a sport mad country, the term Super Coach is rarely used for it is a very high honor. However to name a few Rugby League has Wayne Bennett, AFL Kevin Sheedy and Boxing Johnny Lewis. Now after Friday night there is a new one; Lifesavings Lenore Grice, and what’s more, the lady is ours.

Massive year for masters By TONY FROST IT WAS a massive aerobic year for Noosa Masters Swim Club with Masters Swimming Australia recently releasing the official results of the Vorgee Australia Swim Program for 2013. A record 153 clubs participated throughout Australia, with points allocated for time swam in competition over 400, 800 and 1500 metres for all strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breastroke, butterfly and medley ) plus stroke of choice for 30, 45 and 60 minutes. Noosa’s foray into this competi-

tion picked up momentum in 2010, under the guidance of aerobics coordinator Pat Mooney, whose passion for endurance swimming was apparent. Pat successfully led our club into being number one in Queensland in 2011, before succumbing to ill health, when Marcia Kimm took over the reins. Marcia’s zeal for success, aided by capable timekeeping assistants Lorna Lander, Mary Lester, Bruce Warren, Bob and Olga McCausland, repeating the success as number one in Queensland for 2012 and 2013. Then the big news at the recent

Australian Championships in Rockhampton, the Vorgee Masters Aerobic results for 2013 : First place: Noosa Masters (Queensland ), 25,161 points. Second place: Talays Masters (Tasmania ), 19,752 points. Third place: Darwin Masters (Northern Territory ), 14,446 points. Five of Noosa’s swimmers gained maximum points (1000): Mark Besford, Brian Hoepper, Geoff Lander, Rob Lucas and Irene Symons. Other credible efforts were from: Jacky Shields (891), Brian Cairns

(855), Bob McCausland (854), Ian Mitchell (827), Mark Powell (775) and Bruce Warren (775). With a membership of 93 swimmers for 2013, 69 contributed to the aerobic program. “To win by 5409 points certainly exceeded our expectations”, Noosa’s aerobics co-ordinator Marcia Kimm said. On receiving the trophy at Rockhampton, club president Stephanie Jones said: “This remarkable achievement is a reflection of the club spirit among our members.”

L-R: Joe Gilbert, Jan Croft, Bruce Warren, Eulah Varty, Tony Frost, Mary Lester, Dyanna Benny, Marcia Kimm, Bruce Bate, Adele Tucker, Owen Curtis, Maree Warr - only some of the 75 per cent of club members who participated in the Endurance program.

The Fiona Winter Realty/PJ Burns Noosa Tigers remain in outright second position on the QFA North ladder after a resounding 40 point win over Aspley in Brisbane last Saturday. While the favoured Tigers were always in front throughout the opening half it was evident that their opposition weren’t going to surrender easily with the pressure from both sides being a feature. It wasn’t until late in the third quarter, that some terrific passages of running footy by the tigers began to break the game open. In the final stanza it was all Noosa as the boys banged on six goals to put the result beyond doubt and keep a hold of that all important second position, having only dropped the one game to Mayne a fortnight ago.

Suspended club veteran and 2011 premiership player, Troy ‘Evil’ Duke said the team played hard, but struggled to bring it home. “It was pretty hard fought for most of the first half and we just couldn’t get going,” he said. “We seemed to be making far too many basic skill errors early but once we started hitting targets and getting some run on flow, we really started to break the game open. “Away wins are always important as teams will be always giving it their all at home.” Duke still has a week to serve

of his suspension after being one of the Tigers’ form players in wins over Maroochydore and Caloundra. Duke won`t be the only one missing against Nambour at Weyba Rd this Saturday with gun on-baller Tommy McKittrick injuring a calf, small forward Isaac Hughson with a groin strain and Brett ‘Angel’ Duke away on work commitments. Of course the Tigers will welcome back inspirational Skipper and dual premiership player Peter Trompf along with tough defender Jack Hendrie and there is a whisper Coach James Gellie may pull

the boots on for the Noosa side for the first time this weekend. Once again, Shane ‘Dogga’ Davis was excellent against the hornets with his clean skill and hard-asnails approach. Youngster Jai Fitzpatrick continued his stellar season while Riley Buntain and David Welch were also prominent. Recruits Jed Mullen and Dillon Dempsey were again in the Tigers’ best and it was great to see 2010 premiership player and popular clubman Garry Wallace back in the senior side and as prominent as ever. The reserves had a great win with special mention to under 18 (and son of former champion Sorrento and Noosa ruckman Dane) Zac Johnston, who dominated. All set for a big home game against Sunshine Coast rivals, Nambour at home this Saturday. Don’t forget our third President’s Lunch from midday featuring Collingwood premiership player and ex-president Kevin Rose as our guest. It will be a top day at the local footy Go tigers! Pittsy

Grice graces hall of fame By RON LANE IN THE silence that followed the announcement you could have heard a pin drop. Then the 85 guests assembled on the verandah of the Noosa Heads Surf Life Saving Supporter Club, erupted in a crescendo of cheers and applause. Reason. They had just been informed by the guest speaker, Graham Ford, president of the Surf Life Saving Association of Australia, that Lenore Grice life member of the Noosa club, has been made a member of the Australian Surf Life Saving Hall of Fame. Sitting with friends Lenore was stunned and taken completely by surprise. Speaking of the award Ford said, “When you read this lady’s history as a coach in first aid competition, I can say that this is definitely well earned. This is one of our highest honors. On accepting this award, Lenore becomes only the 63rd person in our 107year history of lifesaving in Australia to be so honored.” The fact that Lenore holds a dual membership being both a member of Noosa and Maroochydore, where she now coaches, speaks volumes for her attitude of being willing to help those who ask. After accepting her framed certificate, Lenore acknowledged the award.

“This has come as a complete surprise,”she said. “Usually when something like this is underway, you get a niggling that there is something going on, but I must be honest I had no idea.” This is understandable as all those involved in researching her background were informed, in no uncertain terms, that their silence was expected in particular those who were her clubmates. “I have always enjoyed what I do. In particular, I love working with young people. It is great after years in a club or organisation to be able to pass your experience on to them. I don’t care what club they come from, I will always help.” Lenore’s career started back in 1972 when she joined the Noosa Club to help a friend with fund-raising for the Queensland Summer Surf Girl Quest. For Lenore who hailed from Brisbane, it was a something of a rough start. “Those were the days when you travelled up through to Eumundi and then down on a dirt road to the coast. On arrival, we would stay at a boarding house in Hasting Street. The trip from Brissie to Noosa took hours,” she said. This was just the start for in 1973 she took the position of fund-raising officer an office she was to hold till 1978.

“In those days, money was hard to come by, it was a lot of chook raffles and house to house collections in Brisbane. The house to house was a big day. A lot of our members lived in Brisbane, but the others had to come down from Noosa State Centre. Our governing body for Queensland would allocate suburbs in which to conduct the appeal and we were usually in the Dutton Park area. We would set up our club tables and chairs for the counters and the boys would go and door knock. Start about 8am on a Saturday and work until 3pm, count our money, then

we would all drive up to Noosa.” During the season 1973 to 1978 she held office as president of the Ladies Auxiliary. Then in 1978/79 season, she served her first season as club honorary secretary. After a season’s break, she returned to office and held the position for the next nine years. Also during this time, she took on the office of co-ordinator for the house to house collection. However after stepping down as secretary in 1989, she was recalled to the office in 1995 and served another two years.

“My interest in first aid competition started in the early ’80s. It was a totally different concept, set mainly on a verbal format and only conducted at state level. Then things got organised and there was great improvement. Now we have full-on scenarios, we rig up major accident scenes, car accidents even glass accidents in our supporter clubs. The scenarios are as real as possible and judging is tough; it is really great.” One of the highlights contained in the documents tabled at her nomination states that “her greatest achievement as a coach had its genesis in 1980 when she became a trainer, coach and assessor for Noosa Heads S.L.S.C.” Under Lenore’s strict supervision, the Noosa team settled into a tight training regime and in the 1985/86 season it paid dividends; Noosa won the Gold Medal at the National Titles in South Australia. “For Noosa not only was it our first-ever gold in open competition at a National Titles,” said Lenore laughing, “but it was the first time ever, that a pregnant lifesaver had won a gold medal at National level. This came about because one of the two person team was my sister Christine. We used to tease them saying they cheated because Noosa was really three persons.” Continued Page 33

the community facility in 1980. The club continues to thrive, thanks to the support of community-minded members, casual players and holiday makers, with over 200 people playing at the three courts weekly.
