The editor’s desk We acknowledge the incredible contributions of our Queen's Honours recipients this week showing Noosa is pushing well above its weight when it comes to giving back to the community. With only six Companion of the Order of Australia presented this year we congratulate Dawn Fraser on her award for the incredible contribution she has made over many years and continues to make in the community. Dawn said age is just a number and at 80 shows it is no barrier to hard work. In fact compared to fellow award recipient Ken Bridges, who at 92 is helping others as a RSL welfare officer, Dawn has many years ahead. We would also like to thank everyone who contributes toward our newspaper each week and are proud to announce our peers last Friday night awarded Noosa Today Best Newspaper at the Queensland Country Press Awards. ● - Margaret Maccoll

THIS WEEK WE’RE TALKING ABOUT…

THE GOOD NEWS - NOOSA TODAY AGAIN STATE’S BEST Noosa Today excelled again this year at the Queensland Country Press Association (QCPA) Newspaper Excellence Awards, taking out a string of awards including Best Newspaper. The Newspaper Excellence Awards held on Friday night in Brisbane celebrated the achievements of regional media professionals. Judges from the awards described Noosa Today as a “high quality community publication to match Noosa’s classy style”. The Star News Group newspaper also won Best Sports Picture and Best Portrait/ Community Picture, both taken by photographer Rob Maccoll who also won second placings in Best News Picture and Best Portrait/Community Picture categories. Two of Noosa Today’s feature publications received highly commended ratings. Noosa Shire Shines received the commendation in the Best Advertising Feature category and Sunshine Coast Kids gained acclaim in the Best Special Publication category. Noosa Today’s sister paper, Southern Free Times in Warwick, also scooped the award pool. Editor Jeremy Sollars was awarded the Overall Journalistic Excellence Award for an individual journalist and a third place for Best Sports Picture. The Southern Free Times also won third placing in the Most Improved Newspaper category. Star News Group managing director Paul Thomas described the newspaper’s recognition as “a sensational result across so many areas”. Group editor Garry Howe said the awards stood as a testament to the dedicated teams in the Noosa and Warwick offices. Regional newspaper publishers travelled from across Queensland to attend the QCPA annual general meeting, conference and awards function. At the AGM, Noosa Today advertising manager Phill Le Petit was elected deputy president of QCPA, with Samantha Wantling of Stanthorpe Border Post president. ●

BUDGET CLASSROOMS Noosa schools will benefit from the State Government Budget with new classroom buildings earmarked for Sunshine Beach State High at a cost of $5.9m and Coolum State High for $5.7m. Education Minister Grace Grace said the ‘2020 Ready’ funding boost would support the accommodation of an additional 17,000 students expected in Years 7 to 12. “In 2020, for the very first time in Queensland’s history, our high schools will have a full complement of students across all six year levels,” she said. In 2007, the State Government introduced Prep and in 2015 Year 7 moved into high school. “With the original Prep students set to graduate from high school at the end of 2019, we will have - for the very first time - six full year levels of students in Queensland secondary schools from 2020,” Ms Grace said.

COVER STORY

WEIGHT OFF HIS MIND BY HOLLIE HARRIS

I

’m not special. If you work hard, you can be what you want to be.” John Morrall has come a long way. From rubbing shoulders with rock stars and high flying with big name businesses to reality TV contestant, John’s journey was always going to big. Big in stature, big in heart and big in making his dreams a reality. A work ethic that ensured success in everything he touched took a toll on his body and mind, that is, until he changed his priorities. The former Biggest Loser contestant lost over 50 kilos and the bad habits that were holding him back. He rests his hat on Jetts Noosa and has never looked back. “My driving force has always been my mother. She really taught me to be what you

want to be and was always there for me, no matter what,” John said. “When I got into trouble, she would tell me to pull me head in. It’s the biggest loss of my life, losing my mother” sadly John lost his mum to cancer several years ago. “My dad was a dreamer. But he never pulled the dreams off. I could see myself as a dreamer too but I knew I had to make them a reality.” John’s early career was going great guns. He worked as a bouncer at Melbourne nightclubs and pubs in the thriving pub rock scene of the late ‘70s and ‘80s when bands like Midnight Oil, The Angels, Noiseworks and The Uncanny X Me. He took a new direction into retail, climbing the ladder quickly to become the state manager for Brashs music in QLD and then later into a franchise for Harvey Norman,

relocating to the Sunshine Coast. “I’ve rubbed shoulders with Tom Jones and Celine Dion, flown around the world first class drinking with the Broncos,” he said “I played hard. I put on the weight because I played so hard,” he said. The fast life was taking its toll on his body and mind. Carrying around 150 kilos brought him along list of other health issues which were becoming like a ticking timebomb. Depression was also creeping in like a black dog in the corner of the room. Despite his struggles, John managed to turn Harvey Norman Noosa store into Queenslands most profitable store. “In business, I was ten feet tall but in private, I was suffering from low self esteem and depression,” he said. Falling into a depression behind the

scenes became harder to carry around than the 150 kilos for John and he knew it was time to seek help. “My doctor said to me ‘pills will help for a while, but you need to get yourself to a place where you can see a window of opportunity to come off them.’ I knew I needed to make some big changes,” he said. Beginning anti-depressants helped him to get a foot-hold and gain enough clarity to take stock of his life. A pack-a-day smoking habit and a visit to the hospital with heart disease was the final straw. “My doctor walked into the room and gave me this look. I was 44, weighed 150 kilos and on anti-depressants, had hypertensive heart disease and sleeping with a sleep apnoea machine. I knew it was time to help myself.”

landed him a role as the new Jetts National Training Manager. Truly in his element once again and for the next couple of years John was training managers, new franchisees and new Jetts support office team. An opportunity came along 5 years ago for John to buy Jetts Noosa and he jumped at the chance to build up the best gym on the Sunshine Coast.

machine which is self-propelled and serious runners can strap in and performance train,” he said. “Hopefully we will win Jetts club of the year for 2018.” I get the feeling that whatever John sets his mind to, turns to gold. It’s been over ten years since that last cigarette and the long walk onto the set of Biggest Loser.

After stripping off 50 kilos, John became an ambassador for the Heart Foundation.

Applying for Biggest Loser in 2008 was the shift John needed. “In all honesty, I got into Biggest Loser to escape the real world.” “I wasn’t on the show for long - I was disqualified quite early for working out without a trainer, but I had already lost 25 kilos.” It was the start he desperately needed and he saw that window to ween himself off the anti-depressants, making regular meditations and exercise his priority. He left the show and found some local trainers to help him chip away at the next 25 kilos. No longer was he using a sleepapnoea machine and on heart medications, his depression had lifted and John had become a stronger version of himself inside and out. He was approached to becoming an ambassador for the Heart Foundation and had begun inspiring others to fight for their quality of life. “I was asked a second time to be an ambassador for the heart foundation in a program they called “heart moves“. I started doing some pretty big gigs as a public speaker which was amazing, doing some modelling and acting, which I still do today.” He also began studying to become qualified as a personal trainer.

“Instead of working 70+ hours a week, I was Personal Training people 25 hours a week, sun baking and just simply taking it easy. I did this for around 3 years. It helped me get me back.” After a much-needed change of pace, and a strong body and mind, John felt it was time to combine all his business knowledge with his new fitness industry experience and climb the ladder once again. “I applied for a job as a Business Performance Manager for Jetts Australia and landed the position overseeing 24 franchised clubs. A few months later I was thrown in the deep end to do a training session for the Jetts club managers.” “I was aware of 20 percent of the content but had to deliver 100 percent. I packed myself. I have always trained my team members over the years, but it was only because I was running a business and that’s what leaders do. “My advice from the outgoing Jetts National Training manger was. ‘You’ve got this. Read the content and make it your own.’ I did the session and the founder of Jetts was in the room. At the end of the training session the room stood up and gave me a standing ovation and clapped so much. It was an amazing feeling.” The founder of Jetts was impressed. In true John style, tenacity and hard work had

John's career was taking off and his health was beginning to feel the weight of it.

With a specific 5 year plan, to build a strong team of trainers, make it the best facility on the Coast and re-fit the whole club, John took the leap. Just as he planned, the gym was nominated Club of the year in 2017 and in the top 10 percent. Just as he planned, a $250,000 re-fit is underway with world-class facilities and equipment and John is now recruiting topend performance trainers to join the team. “We will have a Matrix S Drive running

He has managed to remain healthy, happy and medication free since - and the weight? Well, it seems John Morrall has come to a place of balance and peace with it all. “I still meditate regularly. It is an important part of my life,“ said John. “Life is measured by not what possessions we have, nor where we’ve been or what we’ve done. It’s what we can share that makes the different.“

A LIFE OF SERVICE BY MARGARET MACCOLL Kenneth John Bridges enlisted in the Merchant Navy during WWII as a 16-year-old in Sydney and has dedicated his life to the defence forces, working for the past 30 years with the RSL to assist other veterans and their families. His contribution to the community has been recognized with an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in this year’s Queens Honours list. The 92-year-old Noosa North Shore resident said the award came as “quite a surprise” and he hoped to celebrate it next Wednesday on the occasion of his wife Chris’ 88th birthday. Mr Bridges grew up from the age of nine years in a family of just he and his mother after his father passed away from injuries suffered during WWI. “I finished my intermediate school,“ he said. “I got an office boy job with a newspaper. The war was on and I wanted to do something. I thought dad did it, I’ll do it - I’ll back him up. “I found a way of getting myself off to sea. I organised to do a gunnery course with the navy and had that qualification. Because I got that certificate I became a seaman.“ Mr Bridges was a seaman and

Ken Bridges a gunner on Defensively Equipped Merchant Ships (DEMS) which meant they could only fire in defense not in attack. He travelled across the Pacific at the call of the defense services during the war, then on his return after the war joined the Royal Australian Navy going on to serve in the Korean War. It was not his war service that earned him his recent accolade but the 20-30 years of welfare work he has contributed since moving to Noosa.

“I assist people with their claims for pensions and give advice on where to go to solve their problems,” he said. “That’s anything from household problems through to guidance of parents whose children are looking for training. A welfare officer is more or less a knocking post.” With a membership in the TewantinNoosa RSL of about 500 that involves quite a lot of people and their relatives. Mr Bridges is also chairman of the

Noosa North Shore Rural Fire Brigade. After retiring from the navy he was employed as a fire protection consultant so was well suited to a role with the rural fire brigade where he has also volunteered for about 30 years. Kenneth and Chris have two children who both followed their father in to the navy. Graeme is a Merchant captain and John, a retired computer technician. Their grandchildren are scattered across the world. ●

DAWN UPGRADES TO THE TOP GONG Dawn Fraser said she was “very excited” on Monday to be honoured with Australia’s highest recognition, a Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) in this year’s Queen’s Honours list. Despite her long list of accolades which include an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) and a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) the Noosaville resident was thrilled to receive the award. “It’s meant as much to me as winning my first gold medal when my mum and dad were in the sheds to see me swim,” she said. Dawn won her first Olympic gold medals in 1956 in Melbourne, gold at the Rome Olympics in 1960 and her final gold medal in 1964 at the Tokyo Olympics in the 100m freestyle. Dawn’s AC recognizes her extensive contribution to sport, through ambassadorial, mentoring, and non-executive roles with a range of organisations at all levels, and to the community through roles in conservation and motoring associations. “My mum and dad always taught me to work hard and you will achieve and always remember the people who helped you along the way,” she said. She has given back to her sport and other sports by being a mentor for abled and disabled Australian Olympic Teams. She has maintained an active role

in the sporting and wider community as ambassador, athlete liaison officer and mentor for Australian Olympic Teams, member of the Cerebral Palsy Sports Association, mentor of the Sport Australia Hall of Fame and academy member of Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, as well as former patron of the Wheelchair Sports Association of Victoria and the Ladies Professional Golf Association. She is a Founding Member of the Laureus Sports Academy, a member of the Sport for Good Foundation and Vice President of the World Association of Olympic Winners. Among her community roles she is patron of the Save the Bilby Fund, actively involved in the Noosa Heads Surf Lifesavers Seahorse Nippers for children with special needs and patron of the German Shepherd Dog Council of Australia. Dawn said she was always taught age is just a number so the 80-year-old continues to keep herself fit and healthy to continue her valuable contribution. ●

SAVING LIVES AT SEA - PRICELESS BY MARGARET MACCOLL Robin John Hood moved from the desert of Alice Springs where he was working in construction to the Noosa Shire on the advice of a foreman 22 years ago and hasn’t left. “I came here and said, wow, this will do,” he said. Having lived and been a commercial diver in Darwin for some years Mr Hood got himself a boat on his arrival in the shire and joined the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association. His extensive service with the coast guard has been recognized with an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in this year’s Queen’s Honours Awards. “I’m a bit humbled by it,” he said of the award. “It’s not what you expect. I’m feeling just a little proud of myself. It’s just the respect of your peers.” In addition to having held roles as Sunshine Coast Squadron Commodore from 2010-2015 and QF5 Noosa Flotilla Commander from 2004-2009 Mr Hood has been National Training Commodore since 2013.

“I take great satisfaction in being able to contribute, particularly in the training sector,” he said. Because of his efforts coast guards across the country can access registered training courses and achieve individual goals. One of the most rewarding aspects of his coast guard work has been seeing the looks of relief on the faces of people who have been rescued at sea. Having been involved in a long list of rescues he recalled one where a boat had called in the evening to say they couldn’t start their motor but they were anchored and safe and would sit tight until morning when they would call in. “The weather turned. There was no call,“ he said. “We went across the bar to search for them. The seas were 3m or more. To say the wife was petrified would have been an understatement. “The absolute look of gratitude on her face when we tied up at Coast Guard - you couldn’t buy that for gold.”

BIOSPHERE FUNDING SET FOR CHANGE BY MARGARET MACCOLL Noosa Council has mooted changes to its funding arrangements with the Noosa Biosphere Reserve Foundation (NBRF) and proposed taking greater control over the Foundation’s direction. Council’s current meeting agenda papers show the action is in response to continuing public concerns raised over NBRF operations. “The Foundation has faced challenges associated with turnover in its board composition, community perceptions about the governance model and the need for transparency of its operations given the level of ratepayer funding being provided,” council papers state. Under the current 2015-18 funding agreement Council provided NBRF with operational expenses and project funding in the first year then negotiated further funding over the remaining years. Each year NBRF applied for funding. Over the past three years council provided $1.58 million to NBRF. Council officers propose that under the next three-year funding agreement Council will provide operational expenses of up of $140,000 and project funding of $125,000 in the first year. Future operational funding will be conditional on NBRF undertaking governance reform and subject to annual

negotiation. Further project funding will be determined by Council and based on the suitability of proposed projects. Under the proposed changes Council will make the final decision on which projects will be funded which is in stark contrast to the current situation in which Council provides money to NBRF which determines which projects are funded. Funding will be dependent on NBRF requirements to provide Council details of its changes to its governance, transparency around it operations, community reports and fundraising effectiveness. Councillors will discuss the proposed NBRF funding agreement at its upcoming meetings. ●

FOODIES HEADING TO ITALY Six of the region's top producers and chefs are preparing to represent Australia at the world's largest fair food Fair to be held in Italy later this year. The representatives include four producers, one chef and one producer-chef who were chosen by Slow Food Noosa to attend Terra Madre Salone Del Gusto in Turin in September. The biennial Slow Food event, which brings together international producers, communities, chefs, and visitors in the celebration of good, clean and fair food, will include an international market, where producers who share the Slow Food philosophy will share their products and stories. Held over five days from 20-24 September, the event is expected to bring 5,000 delegates from 160 countries, over 800 exhibitors, 300 Slow Food Presidia, and 500 food communities from the Terra Madre network. It will bring the world's food agrobiodiversity to the fore to discuss local and global challenges and solutions through workshops, forums, conferences, cooking schools, street food and thematic spaces focusing on: Bees and Insects; Food and Health; Seeds; Slow Meat; and Slow Fish. The delegates representing Noosa as part of the Australian contingent include Melinda Murnane, Rhodavale Pork; Jodie Cameron, Barenuts Macadamias; Cecilia Diaz-Petersen, CC's Kitchen and Petersen's Farm; Karen Jarling, CGL Beef; Jodie Williams, Black Ant Gourmet, Kin Kin General Store and Mayan Farm; and Zeb

They are all recipients of Australia's first "Snail of Approval" program which recognises producers, chefs, restaurant owners and food outlets that produce, use and promote good, clean and fair practices and ingredients from the local area. Slow Food Noosa President Erika Hackett said it was a credit to the efforts of their committee and generous members and supportersto be are able to raise the funds to send such worthy recipients. "We have seen previous delegates such as Hinterland Feijoas, Cooloola Berries, Cedar Street Cheeserie and Matt Golinski, go from strength-to-strength since attending Terra Madre," she said.

JADE SPEAKS OUT ON EPILEPSY "65 million people worldwide currently live with Epilepsy, and I am one of them." This is what 13-year-old Jade recently told her 700-strong Secondary cohort at St Andrew's Anglican College, and all for one reason: she wants to create more awareness about epilepsy. Jade was diagnosed in 2016 and has navigated the ups and downs of the disorder

Jade discusses life with epilepsy.

Looking forward to an active later life? Start thinking about it now.

Australians are living longer. And that means there’s a lot more life to enjoy. Whatever you’re looking forward to, the government has programs to assist Australians to be better prepared. The government is providing over $22 million to sporting and other local organisations to help you stay healthy, active and connected. There are lots of ways to live the life you want.

ever since, in which seizures are caused by changes in brain cell activity. "When I was diagnosed it changed my life pretty much straight away; I could no longer stay at home alone or do other activities by myself," she said. "The reason why I want to raise awareness I because I feel like a lot of kids aren't opening up about it." As well as putting posters up around the College to educate on actions for a seizure, Jade talked about epilepsy during a student Assembly. "I believe more schools should become Epilepsy Aware so if anyone in any school, playground or beach can help someone who may be having a seizure," she said. Jade told fellow students that if they witness someone experiencing a seizure, it is important to ensure their head is supported, any surrounding objects are cleared, their breathing is monitored and they are gently reassured until recovered. If possible, the seizure can be timed and it is also important to call for medical help or get a teacher to do so.

The State Government announced $160.8 million in funding for the Beerburrum to Nambour Upgrade as part of this year’s Budget to allow the project to get underway. The Beerburrum to Nambour Rail Upgrade Project involves duplication of about 20 kilometres of North Coast Line between Beerburrum and Landsborough. Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said Infrastructure Australia had given a favourable assessment of the business case for the upgrade recognising it as a priority project. Mr Bailey recently approved the gazettal of land requirements, further signalling the State’s commitment to progressing the project. “Declaration of the land requirements, which have already been subject to community consultation, will occur in the coming weeks, giving the local communities from Beerburrum to Nambour more certainty, and opening up the option for impacted properties to apply for early acquisition, subject to meeting early acquisition criteria,” he said. With the current funding on the table for this project totalling more than $550 million, detailed design work can get underway now, to be followed by the commencement of construction. noosatoday.com.au


NEWS CHAMBER TO MANAGE RV STOP Cooroy Chamber of Commerce will have the opportunity to take charge of the Cooroy RV if Noosa councillors take up the recommendations of council officers at its Ordinary meeting next week. The management of the RV stopover at 17 Mary River Road, Cooroy, has been in council discussions for 10 months. In April Council decided on an expressions of interest process to identify a community group to run the facility, with the not-for-profit group to pay an annual rent of $274 and bear all costs and responsibilities of the facility’s operation.

Submissions for management were received from the Cooroy Future Group Inc. and the Cooroy Chamber of Commerce (CCOC). The RV stopover was established by Council in 2015 to address an identified need to cater for RV travellers in the Noosa hinterland. Council called for Expressions of Interest to manage the facility after findings last August that the current management agreement provided a poor financial return and patronage was “modest at best“. In January, councillors voted to defer a decision. ●

ONE-WOMAN OPERATION EXPANDS TO ASIA Lucy’s decision to sell in Hong Kong with distributor Kansha Natural Therapies has been a challenge in several ways. She said while there was a demand for natural products, expanding a business was a new learning curve. To date sourcing and blending the raw products and even packaging and labelling has been a hands-on activity for Lucy. If the Asian market takes off a new challenge will present itself. “I don’t know how I’m going to do it all,” she said. “I’ll see what product becomes most popular. It has to come to a stage when I’ll have to use a small manufacturer.” ●

Lucy Coonan has spent the past six weeks frantically, personally hand making 800 all-natural skin products from her Noosaville business, James Street Organics, to enter into the Asian market. Lucy started creating her skin care range about three years ago following years of research and 18 years in the fitness industry. Having grown up in Eumundi on a property with home grown organic vegetables Lucy’s search for natural organic skin products led her to make her own. The three-person organisation now has a range of 20 products which are sold online and at several stores and spas across Noosa.

THE LOWDOWN

MORE DISTURBING THAN FICTION BY MARGARET MACCOLL For 40 years Peregian Beach forensic psychologist Donald Grant has delved into the minds of murderers. In his book, Killer Instinct, launched last week he discusses 10 real murder case studies. "I don't go to post mortems. I'm not catching the villain or going to crime scenes," he said. "I get involved when someone has already been charged. I go and see them in custody." Dr Grant's role is to determine the state of mind of an accused murderer, their capacity to act with a sound mind and whether they are fit for trial. He may diagnose a mental illness. His decision may direct the accused to a mental health court or the Supreme Court or determine whether the charge should be manslaughter or murder. Dr Grant regularly appears in court during a trial in the mental health court to provide evidence on which he is questioned and has been called before the Supreme Court to be questioned by the defence. "I've seen hundreds of murderers and sexual offenders," he said. But what makes people commit murder? Dr Grant said in some cases people have had a psychotic disorder and not known what they were doing. Sometimes people get pushed over the edge and kill someone. "We've all inherited through evolution

aggressive drives," he said. Dr Grant said this aggressive ability within everyone leads to a fascination with murder. People like talking about murder and hearing about it as long as it stays at arms length. "If you're really involved in murder it's really traumatic and can leave lasting scars. There's a big difference." Dr Grant wrote his book with the aim to get across in everyday language what all the issues are in the complexity of murder. Three of his case studies involve sexually sadistic murderers who abducted their victims, assaulted and murdered them. Dr Grant said these killers, like serial killers, share three similar traits. Most are driven by powerful sexual drives. They gain sexual pleasure through humiliating and killing. They are psychopaths who have no empathy for others and they have endured traumatic early lives. Their personalities are a result of both inherited and nurtured traits. Killer Instinct by Donald Grant is available at Annie's Books at Peregian Beach Village or at mup.com.au, RRP $34.99. â—?

NEWS

COLD HARD FACT BY RON LANE On the 17 July at the Noosa Tigers AFL Club an official awareness and fundraising luncheon will be held to promote a very personal and often neglected fact of mens health. Prostate Cancer. The official designation for this occasion is the Inaugural Prostate Cancer Foundation Awareness and Research Long Lunch Fundraiser; and it’s definitely a step in the right direction. With an opening address that will be delivered by the Prostate Cancer Foundation National Chairman Jim Hughes, followed by Urologist Dr. Tony Gaiduzzo, the information that will be forth coming should definitely get the ill-informed males moving into an open and different frame of mind. Following the two key-note speaker celebrity speaker Sam Kekovich will then step forward. Unbelievable as it is some men have been unaware that this disease takes the lives of more men than breast cancer does women: so on this day the self- awareness factor will be the key issue. Regarding finance, present indications are that all monies raised at the luncheon will go direct to the medics at the cliff face not into some air condition computerized office where overheads will take 50 percent off the top. This policy set in concrete by the

Guest speaker Sam Kekovich.

organisers, the Noosa Prostate Association, is to be applauded. The awareness drive could not come at a better time for now more men are starting to discuss health problems over a beer with their mates than ever before. The old image of the strong silent male is starting to lose its glow. According to Federal Government estimates 1 in 7 Australian men will definitely be diagnosed and this makes one wonder if the 4 Warning Signs had been known and acted upon would these estimates be so high? This again stresses the importance of the Awareness Factor. But in all honesty the project will only be successful if the young and old alike, remove their heads from the sand and face the facts of life: it is here and it is killing fathers, husbands brothers and mates; but worst of all - it’s here to stay. All indications are that on 17 July it will be a capacity house. If this proves to be correct it would indeed be a great moral booster for the group of hard working and dedicated men who are showing concern for something that in the past, has been put into the I don’t want to know basket of so many men. In other words it looks as though the Awareness Campaign is starting to gain momentum. We wish the organisers every success.

ployment remains high at 5.6 per cent, down only a smidgen of 0.11 per cent from 2016’s 5.71 per cent. The US population is far greater than Australia’s and strange anomalies appear if you believe the numbers preached as gospel by the Turnbull Government. Under Trump the US unemployment is down to 3.8 per cent, the lowest in 18 years. US manufacturing created 25,000 jobs in April. But Turnbull spruiked 1100 new jobs every day. That is 33,000 new jobs in April, 8,000 more than in the US? Quite an extraordinary feat considering our population is about 25 million compared with the US at about 326 million. Turnbull is a bloody genius - at this rate even our unborn children are already employed. Colin Bond, Tewantin

WE LOVE THE ROAD If I may, I would like to comment on Mr Jones’s letter in your last edition. The vice-president of the Verrierdale Residents Group went on about how badly designed the Doonan bridge road upgrades were, and how irresponsible the Sunshine Coast Council project was, with such words

Thursday, 14 June, 2018

as unsafe and substandard. Now ... me and hundreds of local residents are absolutely ecstatic about this new road. We have been waiting a long time for this dust bowl to be upgraded, and we are all very grateful to the SCC for doing such a tremendous job. What I would like to ask Mr Jones is, how many flooded roads has he experienced, how many times did he have to clean his water tanks from dust, how many times did he nearly lose control of his vehicle on the loose gravel, and how often did he have to change his shock absorbers on the previous dirt road? The other issue I do have with his VRG is their actual name, the Verrierdale Residents Group. It implies that the Verrierdale community in its entirety belong to that very small group, and of course it is far from the case. I am the vice-president of the Sunshine Coast Alliance, and our group has more than 250 members, with some actually living on the Doonan Bridge Road itself, and yet to hear one single complaint. The road is terrific ... thankyou Sunshine Coast Council. Dom Massoni, Verrierdale

Barry Charles and Peter Wells.

THE HIGHS AND LOWS Sunshine Coast singer Barry Charles celebrated his 70th birthday recently with the launch of his latest CD, On the Edge. As a 15-year-old Barry suffered from polio and was hospitalised for four years and while it left him with difficulties walking it never dampened his spirit for music. He was instrumental in starting up the Noosa FM radio station, the region’s first chess club and the first full moon dance at Tinbeerwah which is now held at Verrierdale. As a singer Barry is recognised for his extraordinary five-octave vocal range from Tibetan monk lows to Motown heights and his blues rhythms. His performance alongside guitarist Peter Wells and performers Parris Macleod and Chontia Robertson will include a mix of originals and album covers in his own interpretation. Come along to the Majestic Theatre at Pomona for An Afternoon Delight with Barry Charles on Sunday 17 June from 2pm. ● noosatoday.com.au

FOCUS ON ‌ Accounting

FINANCIAL YEAR END 2018 CHECKLIST BY HOLLIE HARRIS

12390417-RA25-18

Holmans Accounting and Taxation say that now is the time to start planning and reviewing your records to maximise your tax deductions for the 2017/18 ?nancial year. Here are our ten top tips for yearend tax planning for businesses and individuals: Businesses Pay quarterly super Super Guarantee (SG) contributions must be paid before 30 June to qualify for a tax deduction in the 2017-18 financial year. Consider bringing forward June quarter SG payments to increase the benefit. Write-off bad debts Review your debtor list to identify those who owe you money but are unlikely to pay. Write-off bad debts before 30 June - the debt must not be merely doubtful and must have been previously included as assessable income. Prepaid expenses Small business entities may bring forward deductible expenses such as rent, repairs and office supplies, that cover a period of no more than 12 months. Stocktake Trading stock should be reviewed before 30 June to identify any obsolete, slow moving or damaged stock. Obsolete stock must be physically disposed of for income purposes to receive a deduction. Defer income Businesses can benefit from deferring invoices until after 30 June. By delaying income, in effect you defer paying tax on that income for the financial year. Wages & PAYG Payment Summaries Ensure you have reconciled your wages and are ready to generate the PAYG Payment Summaries (aka Group Certificates) by 14 July. Before issuing the PAYG Payment Summaries, check the yearly payroll summary agrees to your account totals in your Profit and Loss Statement, ensure any deductions are handled correctly (salary sacrificed super, family support payments soon), and RESC (Reportable Employer Superannuation Contributions) are reported correctly. Contractor Reporting - Taxable Payments Reporting for those in the building and construction industry is due shortly after year end. Make sure you have the

necessary information to complete the ATO forms. It is like PAYG Payment Summaries/Group Certificate reporting for employees, but for the payments you have made to contractors and subcontractors. More information can be found here https://www.ato.gov.au/business/ reports-and-returns/taxable-paymentsannual-report/businesses-in-buildingand-construction/lodging-your-taxablepayments-annual-report/. Cleaning and Courier related industries will need to comply with this next year, so please ensure your computer systems record the necessary information to assist you with this when the time comes (must start recording the information from 1 July 2018). Individuals Depositing contributions All of the contributions that have been recorded for your SMSF need to be deposited in the SMSF's bank account by no later than 30 June 2018. This is especially important where members have reported concessional or nonconcessional contributions. Capital losses Consider selling loss-incurring assets, such as shares, to help offset your tax liability from any capital gains on other assets. Trust resolutions Trustees of discretionary trusts must make and document resolutions prior to 30 June 2018 regarding how trust income will be distributed among beneficiaries. Holmans will prepare these in June for Holmans clients in accordance with prior years. Self-education expenses To obtain a deduction for selfeducation expenses, such as course fees, textbooks, stationery, etc., your study must either be work-related or you receive a taxable bonded scholarship. Home office expenses Business owners operating from home can claim deductions for expenses such as room utilities, i.e., gas and electricity, business phone costs, motor vehicle expenses, depreciation and occupancy expenses, such as rent, mortgage interest, etc. Need help and want to know more?

SOCIAL SCENE

Mike Ryder with his Lotus Exige 2016.

HOTTED UP ENGINES TAKE ON THE HILL Revving engines and petrol fumes took over the usually quiet Tewantin forest on the weekend as more than 140 well greased machines made their fast-paced trek up Gyndier Drive for the winter Noosa Hill Climb. By the time Noosa Beach Classic Car Club president Mike Ryder was set to take his Lotus Exige 2016 through its paces for the first run at lunch time on Saturday there

had already been two crashes on the 14 corner, 1.5km hill, he considered to be “the toughest hill climb in Australia“. “We will h ave more,“ he predicted of the crashes. Mike was aiming to shave a few seconds off his 60 second time with conditions dependent on a number of variables. Bathhurst champion Luke Youlden drove his family wagon, an Audi RS4, to the event,

took out the child seats in the back and raced it up the hill in about 61 seconds. Hill climb spokesman Iain Curry said it was a “monumental effort“ in a road car. Youlden also took spectators on a ride up the hill during the event before driving his Audi back home. Winner of the winter hill climb and event record holder was Michael von Rappard in a Dallara open wheel hill climb special with

a time of 52 seconds which did not beat his record time but was enough to beat the pack. There was a wide variety of cars in the mix over the weekend event including a home built electric racing car. Put together over 10 months by Greg Alderding it was nicknamed the Batt Mobile, because it ran on batteries, and finished the track in about 78 seconds. ●

NOOSA SCREENS FILM AT ITS FINEST The Noosa International Film Festival enters its third year from Thursday 25 to Sunday 28 October 2018 over a festival weekend in the world-renowned destination of Noosa. NIFF is establishing itself as one of Australia’s leading destination film festivals by screening new Australian and international feature length films, high quality short films, and staging inspirational workshops and talks with leading industry guests. Set to embrace its 3rd season this October, the Noosa International Film Festival not only showcases the works of local and overseas film makers, it also prides itself on providing mentorship opportunities locally for young people. Recognising the value of involving youth in promoting both an ongoing love of the cinematic experience and the opportunity for a career in film, this year NIFF has noosatoday.com.au

I love everything NIFF stands for and I am tremendously excited to be part of the team.“ As well as furthering his technical editing abilities through his experience with NIFF, Jonty has also appreciated the opportunity to improve his communication skills while learning more about the actual hosting of a film festival. He suggests that anyone

considering a career in the film industry should put any fear of failure aside and put their hand up whenever the opportunity might present itself. “Taking a risk now could help you break into your chosen career far earlier than you might expect,“ said Jonty.

Sleeping Beauties

Hi Viz

Oceans Eight

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, and the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place. The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied, or is she a demon who must be slain? Not for King first-timers, but well worth a try. ●

While their 2012 follow-up Pacifica was arguably as artistically accomplished (if not more so) as their explosive second album, its gentler and more open sounds unfortunately saw it framed as a disappointment for some fans. But, ten years after the fact, Hi Viz may serve as the duo's desired follow-up. It doesn't really sound a lick like Apocalypso or Pacifica - not any more than Apocalypso sounded like the pair's debut album Beams, anyway. It's a much leaner, weirder record. The tripping half-step beats, jazz scales and random bursts of 8-bit noise on opener Knuckles are probably the weirdest thing The Presets have ever done. It's just awesome. Get it. ●

Upon her release from prison, Debbie, the estranged sister of legendary conman Danny Ocean, puts together a team of unstoppable crooks to pull of the heist of the century. Their goal is New York City's annual Met Gala, and a necklace worth in excess of 150 million dollars.ll-female spin-off of the Ocean's Trilogy, directed by four-time Oscar-nominee Gary Ross. Stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Rihanna. Danny Ocean's (George Clooney) estranged sister Debbie (Bullock) attempts to pull off the heist of the century at New York City's star-studded annual Met Gala. Doesn't break the mold, as much as it remakes it in a new image. ●

ROCKABILLY BABY DELIVERS BY HOLLIE HARRIS Do you love Rockabilly? Tanya Stevens is a self-confessed 'Rockabilly Baby' who can really stand and deliver a performance. Tanya's show is something to be a part of - fun and upbeat, country and rock 'n roll with just enough of her own style to make it a night to remember. Her bold and gutsy tones, which are often sultry and sexy take on the all-time favourites that nobody can resist singing along to. Singing and performing since the age of 10, Tanya knows what it takes to make a good show. She first wowed audiences at her local country music club in Ipswich,before moving on to bigger crowds at the Tamworth Country Music Festival. Now a Noosa local, Tanya performs her heart out at a variety of venues and events and is sure get the crowd up and dancing tomorrow night at the Tewantin Bowls Club. An authentic veteran of the rockabilly scene, Tanya grew up listening to the noosatoday.com.au

country legends, sharing and learning all she can to perfect her own music. This busy mum of two handsome young men also runs her very own funky hairdressing salon, Liplocks Hair and Beauty Parlour as well as the Tewantin Noosa Rollers rollerskating group.

Her love for rockabilly is threaded throughout her home and work; her walls, her furniture, her instruments, her style, all look as if it they been painted with a vintage brush. Even Tanya herself is a vintage vision, seeming as though she has stepped straight from a 1950s pinup with luscious pink hair and beautiful body art.

TRY THIS … Women in Business

TAKING IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL BY HOLLIE HARRIS The Sunshine Coast economy is set to receive a stimulus from financial and educational incentives aimed at encouraging women to power up their business brains. The University of the Sunshine Coast and the Queensland Government have partnered to offer women thinking about starting or developing a business the opportunity to participate in a free program that covers a broad spectrum of business finance and education. The Women's Economic Advancement and Leadership Trumps History (WEALTH) #WEALTHSERIES program comprises of several engaging workshops to be convened on the coast at monthly intervals from April to October. Hosted by the University's International Development team, the series offers aspiring woman start-ups or entrepreneurs the financial guidance and encouragement to take the leap into the business world. Manager of the University's Global Projects Program Tami Harriott said that a lack of confidence and knowledge of business and financial affairs are roadblocks to entry into the world of business for many women. "The program has been designed to deliver a wealth of information in digestible doses via three-hour twilight sessions that are also socially enjoyable. Participants will learn how to start and run a business, identify business trends, conduct market

research, develop marketing strategies, and undertake risk and reputation management, as well as learning how to get money, grow money, and apply for grants or seed funding." Ms Harriott said that the University will also lend support to other Queensland Government initiatives aimed at advancing women in business including the Mentoring

for Growth Program and the effort to have more women appointed to boards, an initiative led by the Office for Women. The next event will feature a panel of businesswomen sharing their stories to success on June 20 in Noosa. Find out more and register for the next event at facebook. com/USCInternationalDevelopment today. ●

FOCUS ON … Health Wellness & Beauty

MEN’S HEALTH IS IN BAD SHAPE Men's unhealthy lifestyle habits are catching up to them, with rates of some potentially preventable cancers more than 3.6 times higher in men than women. This week for Men's Health Week (June 11-17), Cancer Council Queensland is urging men to get informed and reduce their risk of preventable cancers by taking small steps to improve their health. Research shows that the incidence rate of bowel cancer among Queensland men is about 38 per cent higher than for women, while incidence rates for lung cancer and melanoma are 50 per cent higher. In addition, incidence rates of bladder cancer are 3.6 times higher for men - many cases of which could be prevented*.

Cancer Council Queensland CEO Ms Chris McMillan said one third of all cancer cases could be prevented - around 5000 cases among men in Queensland annually. "Preventable cancer cases are mainly attributable to six lifestyle factors; tobacco smoking, exposure to UV, an unhealthy diet, being overweight or obese, alcohol consumption, and lack of physical activity," Ms McMillan said. "Men have the power to change their outcomes and close the health inequalities between men and women - and that starts with healthy habits. "Men currently have a 29 per cent higher smoking rate than females, are more frequently exposed to harmful levels of UV,

are 30 per cent less likely to be a healthy weight, and 2-3 times more likely to drink alcohol at risky levels. "In addition, men are 76 per cent less likely to consume the recommended daily serves of vegetables, and 44 per cent more likely to consume sugar sweetened drinks." Ms McMillan said Men's Health Week was the prime opportunity for men to put their health first and improve short and long-term outcomes. "Your daily habits make a big difference to your everyday health - by taking small steps you can reduce your cancer risk," Ms McMillan said. "Consider reducing alcohol intake, improving your diet and exercising regularly, along with being sun safe and

quitting smoking, and if eligible, taking part in the national bowel cancer screening program. "Not only will these changes improve your health, but you'll have more energy, more disposable income and more time to spend with friends and family." *How incidence rates for preventable cancers in Queensland compare between males and females: Lung 52 per cent Melanoma 53 per cent Bowel 38 per cent Stomach 153 percent Kidney 95 percent Pancreatic 40 perc ent Bladder 265 per cent ●

Providing habitat for a suite of other species and a tranquil place for human enjoyment, Australia's forests make up 3% of Earth's total forest area. Our Tall Forests store immense volumes of carbon within the complex structures of tall trees, fallen logs and organic rich soils but carbon content is linked to fire frequency and management history.

SPORT TODAY TOUGH MATCH FOR U7 EAGLES

GIRLS SCORE A ‘MAN’ UP U8 by Coach Will Vine Eumundi Dragons were out in force at Maleny Bushrangers on Saturday with all teams playing in the hinterland except for our strapping under 9s who had a bye. With winter colds keeping a few of our U8s in bed true to the great spirit of the club U9's Alex Eaton was more than willing to play for us. Alex is young enough to play down an age so we were more than happy to have his skills on the field. The younger boys really liked having a big kid on the field and tried there best to keep up and support him on the breakdowns. While we may have been outplayed by the terrific Lighthouse team on the field we received high praise from the Caloundra coach and supporters after the match letting us know how much they enjoy our friendly games. Stating that our boys are gentlemen and a great bunch of kids to play against. This week the player of the game was Josh Vine who is developing into a great ruckman and controller of the game with his ability to make valuable field position and look for support to keep the ball and players all onside. Josh celebrated with an ice cream. Proud dad celebrated later joining the Dragons family to watch the Wallabies V Ireland at our sponsors Imperial Hotel. U7 by Andrew Hillhouse The Eumundi Dragons U7s played Caloundra at the picturesque Maleny grounds on the weekend in a tight tussle that saw the lead constantly changing. The Dragons executed some brilliant passing in open play and determinedly defended their tryline through multiple phases. Both teams snaffled up a loose ball which resulted in runaway tries. Daisy Turner excelled in her second game with gritty defence, try saving tackles out of nowhere and speedy attack scoring in the corner, picking up the Player of the Match and an award from the Caloundra team for her efforts. The teams sportsmanship and commitment is a reflection of the great coaching by Scott Griggs. Special thanks to U6s Jack Cooper and Tristian Youd for fronting up again to make up the team numbers and played again like U7s. U6 by Coach Luke Youd On a frosty winters morning the U6 Eumundi Dragons ventured to Maleny to showcase their rugby prowess against a well prepared Caloundra team. Caloundra came out fighting with lighting fast passing but the impenetrable Eumundi Dragons defence kept them at bay on more than one occasions. But defence was not the only mid-year improvements the dragons demonstrated, the Dragons' offence was impeccable and a true indication of how these Young's titans have been training and playing hard so far this year. With multiple tries by CJ, Nixon and Tristan, fantastic

The day started wet and muddy, but that only added to the excitement for U7 Gold who fought a tough match, playing one player down! The kids worked well as a team as they passed the ball through the defence from one side of the field to the other! Everyone played great defence, but it was cruiz who took out player of the match with his fair play on both field and goals. Well done U7! On a wet and muddy field the Under 10 Gold continued their winning form with a 3-1 win over Buderim. In a tight first half Buderim scored first, but not long after Montanah scored her first goal for the season to equalise. One all at halftime meant both teams were fired up for the second half. It was dedicated striker Harrison that found the back of the net first. The effort in mid field and defense was its usual toughness and strength on the ball. Eli found his inner fire and was unstoppable when having a run in mid field. An awesome performance all over the field was capped off by a World Cup quality final goal from Montanah off a perfect cross from Bella. Player of the match went to Eli for his renewed enthusiasm. For the U10 Black, their game against buderim started off close as both teams showed great defense! The eagles were determined and their strength continued on field write up to the end of the second half winning the game 13 - 0. Iggy did a tremendous job in goals position, stopping some hard and fast balls! Well done Iggy! ●

Let's go.

NOOSA MALLET SPORTS HIT THE TARGET BY DOUG MCCONNELL Noosa's pennant golf croquet team were at home and hosted Headland/Buderim last week. On a handicap basis both teams were almost evenly matched with one of the Headland /Buderim players receiving one extra turn. The results showed otherwise, with Noosa taking the day convincingly - 6 matches to 4 after running 65 hoops to Headland/Buderim's 49. The individual noosatoday.com.au

games results follow with, as usual, Noosa players and scores shown first. In the 1/2 singles Niven Gugich defeated Helen Rillie (7:3) while Rob Moncrieff lost by the same score to Doug Houston (3:7). In the reverse singles Niven lost to Doug Houston in a close battle (6:7) while Rob had solid win over Helen Rillie (2:7). The 3/4 singles split evenly with Ray Powley beating Dianne Meyer (7:4) and Peter

Richardson losing to Mike Owen (2:7). In the 3/4 reverse singles Ray beat Mike Owen (7:3) while Peter Narrowly fell to Dianne Meyer (6:7). The doubles matches both went Noosa's way with 2 solid wins Niven and Rob beat Helen Rillie and Doug Houston (10:5), while Peter and Ray handily overcame Mike Owen and Dianne Meyers (10:4). All In all, a satisfying result for Noosa. ●

TIGERS HAVE CUNNING PLAN FOR PUMAS Tigers heading home The Rococo's Bar and Bistro Noosa Tigers head back home to Weyba Road this Saturday when they take on the dangerous but inconsistent Springwood Pumas. The Noosa Tigers only loss in season 2018 was against the South Brisbane outfit way back in round one and the Noosa Tigers will certainly be looking to reverse the tables and remain clear on top of the Hart Sport Division One Ladder. The Pumas pose plenty of potency up forward with names like Hooper, King and Friis all capable of kicking a winning total which they have done in the past couple of weeks. In saying that the tigers backline all year has been simply outstanding; led marvellously by skipper Aaron Laskey who again has been a measure of consistency. Maffra mates Lambourn and Stevens have been super whilst young local Harry Maher continues to develop into an A Grade senior footballer. Football manager Mitch Woods has had a superb season and must be high up in best and fairest calculations at the half way point. Again the Tigers will look to inform ruckman Connor McDonald to give his team first use of the footy and allow the skills of Hill, Templeton, Stack and Fitzpatrick to set the game up. To this point the Noosa boys haven't relied on a solitary forward to kick their scores however the ever consistent Kent Delbridge continues to be a handful for any opposition. Senior coach Sam Faure would be

delighted with the first half of the year and I'm sure is looking to continually improve and keep up the ball movement and forward press with which the ladder leaders have adopted and done so well thus far. Also worth mentioning is the constant pressure coming from David Barnes' reserves who themselves have only dropped the one game just before the break. Players of the calibre of Tarling, Winter, Bence and Vaughan are always putting their hands up for senior selection. Also worth a mention are the handful of promising colts like Tom Maher, Mac Johnston and Will Mckenzie having top seasons thus far in the under 18 competition. It should be an intriguing battle this Saturday at Noosa and surely one not to be missed. Big Peter 'Spida' Everitt has attracted plenty of interest as our Presidents Lunch guest and all the best to all our junior teams who go around again this weekend. Can't wait! Go tigers Pittsy ● Noosa U14 Red An undermanned Noosa Red team were soundly beaten by the top team in Coolum in their game last Sunday. With a few key players out, the Tigers were no match for the much older and stronger Coolum outfit. Despite this, the boys never gave up and fought it out to the end. The final score was Coolum 10.8.68 to Noosa 1.0.6. Special

Coach Dave and Stew Noosa hosted a Nambour/hinterland at Weyba oval The game on Sunday was a true arm wrestle with both teams locking the ball in the forward 50 for extended periods without scoring a major. A couple of heavy showers made the ball slippery but the skill level and intensity from both teams was excellent and made for a great game to watch. The effort right across the park was great from the whole list. In and under all day was Kai Wood who was the glue holding the midfield tight. Conner Gipters and Ryan were fantastic in defence and continued their good form in locking down opposition attacks. Charlie Bowes was outstanding and almost snatched the game for Noosa in a series of hard won contests and forward 50 entries. While Max ( if it moves I'll tackle it ) Leary was hard tackling and running all day. Unfortunately, Nambour won out 5 9 39 v Noosa 4 11 35. ●

HART SPORT CUP

Youth Girls report Mixed results for our Noosa Tigers Youth Girls last Friday night but by no means were any Tiger faithful disappointed with our girls efforts. Our Under 15 girls played top of the table Maroochydore and whilst undermanned the entire night, the girls fought long and hard until finally going down in a thriller by 5 points. The U13 Tiger girls who made the commitment and ran and tackled their hearts out should be truly proud of themselves. Team leaders Hannah Mckenzie, Teesha Fox and Mia Woodburn were outstanding for the tigers whilst power forward Imogen Van Der Vegt (3goals) and Lauren Vaughan were also standouts also. In absolutely atrocious conditions and under the watchful eye of Mav Pettigrove, our U13 Noosa Pink girls dug deep in the last quarter to run out seven point victors over the highly rated Maroochydore Boomers. Kate Roberts revelled in the conditions to be clearly best on ground whilst usual suspects Kyiah Hides, Chloe Murray and Poppy Tindal were terrific. ●

went for most of the day. We played 80 per cent of the match in our forward line and in a low scoring game kicked 2.7.19 to 0.1.1. Bribie played a defensive style of game which accounted for the low scoring but our hard tackling and pressure play won through. Special mention this week to a number of players Xander F on the wing led the way with Jensen, Jacob, Sam and Harry R important in defence. Jonty back from illness and Louie on the other wing also deserve mention. As usual our midfield led by Lara, Jack and Finn really set the tone. Overall it was a great team effort again by everyone. ●

Noosa Reds vs Bribie Island A 10am start on Sunday at home playing Bribie and it promised to be a great game. We were out for revenge as they beat us earlier in the season. This week we started with great purpose but were inaccurate in front of goal and that was the way the game

mention to Jago Roberts and Zac Marenko who doubled up after their under 12 game to fill in for the under 14's. The back line was under pressure all day and centre half back Beau McWaters held firm all day. Eric Mahe toiled hard all day and snagged Noosa's only goal for the day with a great solo effort. Cavan Cartwright was terrific in the back line, keeping his opponent quiet. And Tom Smith played his best game of the year, providing a great target in the forward line. ●

LIFE OF BRINE

PHIL JARRATT

A screen grab from the WSL broadcast showing the massive over-development of Uluwatu.

THE WRECKS WRAP UP ANOTHER ONE The Noosa Wrecks and Relics were blessed with warm winter sun and passable waves at the river mouth for last weekend’s umpteenth annual golden oldies extravaganza. And while it doesn’t get any easier with every passing year, even the most senior surfing divisions showed that they can still cut it. That’s the beauty of this great little comp. It doesn’t really matter if you finish first or last, except when you’re in the final and that mongrel you’ve been trying to beat since those junior meets more than 50 years ago has a crook back and a touch of gout, and today might just be the day you get the drop on the bastard. Ah yes, old rivalries die hard, and while there are many who have come to competition late, and mainly for the camaraderie around the beer tent, there are just as many who have been whining about judging decisions since the year dot, and the Noosa Malibu Club gives us this wonderful opportunity to come together each June in a spirit of bonhomie, goodwill, and revenge. But it’s all good clean fun, especially over an amber or two on the nineteenth wave in the bar, and if you can remember that the guy that beat you last weekend is the same guy who beat you all those years ago, then look on the bright side. At least you can still remember! No prizes for guessing who won the old farts - in the over 70s Nev Smith added another trophy to the cluttered cabinet, and in my division, the over 65s, Eric Walker, the jockey from Ballina, clobbered us all as usual. The Mal Club’s stalwart Mick Corcoran brained them in the juniors, while Sandy Knights-Woods and Kate Perry were on fire in the women’s. And speaking of trophies in the cabinet, this year’s were outstanding, thanks to

local artist and artisan Owen Cavanagh, whose corrugated creations are a joy to behold, even at the matchbox size reserved for minor finishers such as your humble correspondent. A great weekend came to a pleasant end with a killer set at the Reef from aging boy band The SandFlys, with Victorian bush band supremo Brendan “Ranga” Dowd sitting in. Some of our town’s most respected businessmen were up and dancing. Ulus in extremis Meanwhile, at the other important surfing event held last weekend, our own Julian Wilson reclaimed the yellow jersey with a brilliant and emphatic display at Uluwatu, falling just short of a win over Brazilian powerhouse Willian Cardoso after dispatching Jordy Smith and Kolohe Andino to reach the final. Julian seemed to grow in power and confidence in every session in the tricky overhead lefts, and must go into his favored Jeffrey’s Bay event with his world title campaign back on track. There’s a long way to go and a lot of Brazilians to beat, but I’d get a bet on while he’s backable. The completion of the Margaret River Pro at Bali’s most famous wave (following the shark scare at Margie’s in March) was a stroke of genius on the part of the World Surf League, but it inadvertently put a global focus on a growing problem for Bali - the absurd over-development of the Bukit Peninsula. When the challenging lefthander at the foot of the Suluban cliffs first hit the surfing radar in the early 1970s, the dry scrub of the Bukit was sparsely inhabited by poverty-stricken villagers who had descended from petty criminals who had been banished from Badung rather than beheaded. In those years surfing Uluwatu was a wonderful adventure that changed my life,

but by the late 1980s Tommy Suharto, the corrupt son of the corrupt president, had been given free rein to develop along the peninsula’s starkly beautiful cliffs, a trend that has continued unchecked ever since, creating massive problems of erosion and toxic run-off. I don’t go out there for pleasure these days, but on filming and research trips, I have been appalled at what I’ve seen, although amazingly, the compounds of some of the families we befriended all those years ago are still intact, hidden behind concrete walls. Local and expat surfers have formed environmental groups, like Clean Water Uluwatu, to try to improve the situation, but development greed is hard to eradicate. Perhaps those panning shots on the WSL broadcast, showing crowded bars hanging off rocks on the edge of the sea, will help the cause. FOOTNOTE: Surfing buddies of the late Ray “The Admiral” McKeon please note that there will be a paddle-out for The Admiral at First Point on Saturday morning at 7am. It should be a beautiful morning, complete with Ray’s beloved Hawaiian music, as his mates bid him farewell. ●

BETWEEN THE FLAGS

RON LANE

FAREWELL TO THE ADMIRAL LEGEND I think that a lot of people would agree that in life it is the simple pleasures that often give birth too many happy memories. Memories such as a good cup of coffee with three or four clubmates on the verandah of the Noosa Surf Club. The best of all being the ones on a cold, chilly winter Sunday morning; lots of laughter tall stories and waves that got bigger as the morning progressed. But above all it was the company of our veteran club mate Ray McKeon, affectionately known to one and all as the Admiral, which will cause these times to linger in our memories. With his years of surfing first Point well and truly over Rays Company along with that of his wife Joan, became our pleasure. For Ray his career in the Noosa Heads SLSC didn't start till late in life, a start that eventuated following his migration from south of the border. His advanced age didn't stop him from doing his bit to help his new club. After a short time as a member he put up his hand for the gear stewards job, a job which he was to successful hold for the next three years. In the words of club mate Rob Carrett who worked with Ray in the gear shed. "He was a great club man a perfect gentleman and very well respected; above all he was intensely dedicated to his club and had a deep love of the surf." Sadly, after a long fight with ill health Ray recently passed away. A group of club mates gathered at his service to bid a sad farewell and convey the clubs respect and support to wife Joan. He was indeed one of that rare breed who, despite his quite reserved nature will forever leave his footprints in the golden sands of Noosa Beach. With the 2017/18 surf lifesaving season now over our three local clubs Peregian, Sunshine Beach and Noosa can report no lives lost between the flags while members on patrol. For both Sunshine and Noosa it

Sunshine Beach SLSC Patrol Group of the Year Patrol 7 with Sandy Bolton. has indeed been a very successful season with their beach safety and courtesy patrols giving great service and their competitors coming home from the National Titles with their best results ever. At Sunshine's Annual Dinner and Presentation of Trophies there were many Awards for both lifesaving and competition; and what appears below are just a few of many. In the lifesaving category the prestigious Lifesaver of the Year went to Craig Anderson the Club Person of the Year Michelle Smallman and Volunteer of the Year Andrew Fraser; and the most important of the season The Patrol of the Year was Patrol 7 under the leadership of

Patrol Captain Natalie McMaster. Others to be acknowledged were Freya Wilson Nipper of the Year and Rio Knott Cadet of the Year. In the area of Surf Sports Ruby Nolan received the Competitor of the Year. Ruby then doubled up with club mates Olivia Emanuel, Talisa Brady and Charli McKinley to win the Team of the Year. This came about as a result of them winning gold in both the Taplin Relay and Board Rescue events. Member for Noosa Sandy Bolton participated in the presentations. Club President Scott Summers rapped it up well when he said, "For Sunshine Beach this has definitely been a year to remember and I thank all involved. Also a big thank

HOOK, LINE & SINKER

you to all our sponsors: we can't thank you enough for your support and loyalty down through the years." Despite it being the off season Sunshine's IRB training classes are still being conducted and this weekend a team will undergo its final assessment. Then on 24 June the club will hold its Annual General Meeting and Election of Officers. Congratulations on the season past and good luck for the 2018/19 season. Next week we look at Noosas 2017/18 season; both between the flags and in the world of competition. â&#x2014;?

PLENTY OF TREVALLY IN THE RIVER - HOOK UP WITH A FEW! With the great offshore weather conditions over the past week anglers headed out in numbers, starting out wide. The Barwon Banks fished well this week for cobia, tusk fish, Moses perch and pearlies while The Hards has been producing snapper, tusk fish, red emperor, pearl perch, hussar, cobia and blue mori cod. North reef has been great for bigger tusk fish, cobia, pearl perch, snapper, jew and Moses perch. Those who did the big steam up the reefs off Double Island Point got snapper, red emperor, tusk fish, pearl perch and some big cod. Sunshine reef is still producing good numbers of pearl perch, sweet lip, tusk fish, and cobia. Snapper are around but mainly feeding in the low light periods in the afternoons. Chardon's has had a great run of better size snapper, Mac tuna, long tail tuna, and jew this week, with anglers having most their success on floating whole pilchards, and a wide range of soft plastics fished with light tackle. Water temperatures are really starting to drop now with anglers report a two degree drop over the last couple of noosatoday.com.au

weeks. This will send those mackerel north so if you are still chasing mackerel probably better to focus on the northern reefs. In the river we have seen a solid run of big flathead from the lower part of the system as well as up to the mouth of Lake Cooroibah. These have been caught on live and dead baits and of course soft plastics. In the lower part of the system the tailor are making a stronger presence each week as they make their run north. Bigger fish are not unusual so it's important to upsize your leaders when the tailor are around as they can get through some gear if the leader is too light. The bigger fish are falling to a range of trolled lures and surface lures and fresh strip baits fished on small gang hooks. Surface lures to use should be darker colours in the low light changing to lighter colours as the sun comes up. Both poppers and surface walkers have been working well. Trevally are also on the chew with plenty of golden trevally taken over the last week. Fishing soft plastics around Woods Bays and the Ski Runs has been very effective with

one angler recording 11 fish, all of which were returned. Live beach worms have been accounting for quality bream and whiting in the lower estuary when rigged with lighter leaders and worm hooks. Fishing areas like Gympie Road, Munna Point, Woods Bays, the Dog Beach and of course the Frying Pan have all seen great results. Fishing along the Noosa North shore has been very popular for tailor anglers with the Double Island end seeing some bigger fish on the morning and afternoon tides. Jew are also about and love a feed of tailor so if you get a legal chopper take the sides off him and send it out the back. The best jew bite is always a couple of days before and after the new moon, fishing the incoming evening tide. There are plenty of Dart and good sized Bream in most of the close gutters so make sure you have plenty of prawns and small flesh baits to tempt them. Whiting are also in good numbers with live beach worms the perfect bait. So On behalf of Jack Mangrove, best of luck on your fishing adventures! â&#x2014;?
