THE LATEST IN FOOD

It's a little late but as it's our first paper for the year - Happy New Year to everyone. If you'd like to start the year with a laugh have a read of Life of Brine to see Phil Jarratt's take on the year ahead. News wise the year may have just begun but already there's plenty going on to keep people on their toes. There's been our fair share of ocean rescues and blue bottles keeping beach goers either out of the water or dealing with stings. The glossy cockatoos favourite feeding spot at Sunrise is under threat from development. Police have clamped down on Teewah Beach drivers. The school year is just around the corner. And we're already eating hot cross buns and Easter Eggs. ●

THIS WEEK WE’RE TALKING ABOUT…

RESCUE IN DANGER ZONE AT HELLS GATE BY RON LANE A lifesaving rescue occurred on Saturday 29 December at about 1.30pm in the Hells Gate region that should not go unnoticed. Noosa Patrol 4 captain Donald McKill was informed that a person was in difficulties in the rocks just off the beach area. Because of the big swells hitting this area it was too dangerous for the IRB patrol boat driver James Marsh, sent to investigate, to approach the rocks. Without hesitating IRB crewman Chris Clark went over the side

and dragging a rescue tube swam into the danger area. In the meantime two jet rescue skis that were able to get closer arrived and after the patient, who was clinging to the rocks was secured by Clark, he swam him to a jet ski which then moved into Alexandria Bay where a backup team from Sunshine Beach club was waiting. Because of the somewhat isolated unpatrolled areas that exist in certain parts of our National Park dangerous rescues such as this are becoming a constant occurrence. There is more to being a lifesaver/lifeguard

than just watching families bath between the flags: with our beautiful National Park being a major attraction the importance of the courtesy IRB roving patrols from both clubs cannot be emphasized enough. Let us never forget that some of these IRB crewies are only 17-18 years of age. They do it because it is their job and the fact that protection of human life is the core of our existence. It would have to be one of our biggest holiday crowds ever to visit Sunshine and Noosa beach areas over the Christmas break. On Noosa's Main Beach the tourists packed

in and with great weather and moderate surf conditions it was ideal. With the large crowds and surf there was bound to be some rescue work but because of the vigilant patrols and the constant patrolling of our IRB teams on our beaches situations that did occur were immediately responded to. Unfortunately a situation that did on several occasions occur was young children in the 9-10 age groups being left to their own devices but quick response from our patrols of both lifeguards and lifesavers and the unsupervised children were returned to the beach. ●

FAMILIES PROTECT THE BEACHES AT CHRISTMAS SURFERS SWIM DESPITE STING BY RON LANE

One thing that is now occurring in surf clubs around Australia is something in which we now take great pride; that is family involvement. There could not be a better example of this than Christmas morning on Noosa Main beach. On this occasion our beach goers came under the watchful care of two such families: the Gemmells and the Glassocks. Christmas day patrols are performed on a volunteer bases (no patrol roster system) because of family commitments. So when the flags went up Jon Gemmell was patrol Captain and his family of William, Douglas, Reuben and Meg were with him as patrol members and for the Glassock family there was Jan with her family of Harry, Archie, Maggie, Darcy and Joey. The only one missing was the father Dave, a highly respected senior member (and former JAC chairman) who we lost after a long battle with cancer. Over the hill at the Sunshine Club they have a similar membership which includes the Redwood, Brabys and Brewers families, just to name a few.

BY TESSA MAPSTONE

Christmas Day patrol at Noosa Main Beach. The outstanding contribution made by their family members over the many years is a matter of pride.

We thank them one and all for their commitment, not only to their clubs but also the community at large. ●

POLICE OPERATION TARGETS TEEWAH BEACH A large scale police operation was undertaken over the Christmas - New Year period on Teewah Beach. Officers joined forces from the Road Policing Unit, Tactical Crime Squad and Noosa Police in the operation targeting motorists along the popular holiday spot. Noosa Heads senior sergeant Ben Carroll said 59 traffic infringement

notices were issues for speeding, failure to wear seat belts and for defective and modified vehicles. Police undertook 656 random breath tests, netting three drink drivers and 13 Random Drug Tests were conducted with 3 drug drivers detected. Drug charges were also laid. Snr sgt Carroll said police would

continue to target Teewah Beach over the holiday period. "The majority of beach goers have been enjoying themselves with family and friends without incident and police are very pleased with the overall driving conduct of motorists, given the higher volume of traffic in this area over this holiday period," he said. ●

A massive influx of bluebottles has put a sting into summer for thousands of beach goers. Lifeguards treated an incredible 3,595 people for bluebottle stings at South East Queensland beaches across the weekend, 2,632 of those on Noosa, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast beaches. The bluebottles (otherwise known as the Pacific Man-of-War) were blown onshore by unusually-strong northeasterly winds, and with more east- and north-easterly winds forecast, lifeguards expect the plague to continue. "A wall of bluebottles" approaching Rainbow Beach, north of Noosa, on Sunday led lifesavers to close the beach and warn swimmers to stay out of the water. The bright blue creatures are made up of an inflated float, and long tentacles with stinging capsules that can pack a fierce punch. For most people, getting stung by a bluebottle will be painful but not dangerous, but there can be complications in extreme cases, or for the very young, the elderly and people who are allergic to them. For the average person, getting stung by one will present no harmful danger, however, for the very young, elderly, people allergic to them or in extreme cases, they can present further complications. If you are stung by a bluebottle, pick off the tentacles with your fingers, rinse the stung area in seawater to remove any invisible stinging cells and wash in hot water. If heat does not relieve the pain, or it's not available, ice the area. Lifeguards can help you with treatment. If the symptoms persist or for stings that cover a particularly large area, or across the throat and face call triple-zero. ● 12408802-RA03-19

COVER STORY Brad and Monique Everton with sons Corey and Zac. Pictures: Rob Maccoll

FAMILY IS

EVERYTHING I BY MARGARET MACCOLL

f only a child arrived with a manual. What parent hasn't thought that at some time? Psychologist Brad Everton believes parenting may be the hardest, most challenging and yet rewarding job you will ever be faced with but one that can be made easier if you know how. With

almost 20 years experience in psychology he has discovered that parents can navigate "with confidence and ease" with "a solid framework" and "proven tools, tips and strategies". "Once you become a parent, you soon realise the enormous burden you place on yourself because you are completely responsible for making every decision and trying to raise your children so they can

fulfil their potential," he said. "It is also said that as a parent, you are not just responsible for one generation, but at least two - because your children are most likely to raise their children similar to you." But it's no wonder parents struggle. Parenting skills are not something taught in school so Brad isn't surprised to find parents "often lack confidence, find it difficult to be consistent with their parenting and struggle

to connect with their kids during times of difficulty."Brad's interest in helping families began with his fascination with the power of the mind and how to harness that power to develop a successful mindset, something he struggled to achieve when he was young. "In my early teens I competed in athletics at state and national levels. I was naturally gifted but didn't know how to reach my potential," he said.

"I then started searching for answers through the personal development industry and studying everything I could find about it. My first two books in that industry were the classics, 'How to win friends and influence people' by Dale Carnegie and 'Maximize your mental power' by David Schwartz, PhD who was also the author of 'The Magic of Thinking Big.'" Brad realised then he wanted to help people get better results in their lives. He completed honours and masters degrees in psychology and has been a registered psychologist for about two decades. Before moving to the Sunshine Coast in 2010 with his wife Monique and son, Corey (now 11), he was a practicing psychologist in Student Services at the University of Southern Queensland and also supported students on-campus through his role as Associate Director of the Residential Colleges. Through his work it has become clear to Brad that the problems parents struggle with can be condensed to three main issues: 1. Lack of consistency - which is not knowing what to do and more importantly not sticking to routines, rituals, and the certain behaviours that can make parenting easier and more effective. 2. Lack of connection - this is vitally important to be able to maintain open communication with your kids so they can continue to seek your guidance during difficult times. 3. Lack of confidence - parents often doubt themselves, feel guilty and disappointed because they are unable to support their kids in a way that empowers them. If parents don't resolve these issues in the early years and set up a solid foundation and framework from which to operate when kids become teenagers and start to explore their independence and seek the guidance of

others problems can become more apparent. "When you experience problems, what's being tested is your foundation," he said. "So, if your foundation is solid and strong, then you will withstand the problems and find solutions to them. If your foundation is not solid, then cracks will appear, and the problems will become bigger. So, the sooner parents can build a solid framework, with principles which are timeless, generational and universal, it will allow them to create the family they have always wanted." Brad believes it is these fundamental principles that enable parents to maintain open communication to resolve conflicts, keep their self-control, teach their kids to boost their own self-confidence, share family values, beliefs and morals, have a system to solve problems quickly and easily and introduce outside concepts to help kids reach their full potential. After helping numerous families with their problems Brad set about creating a guide book. He compiled his most effective tools, tips and strategies into the straight forward, easy to read book for parents, titled "On Track Parenting - the Missing Manual that should have come with your child". It's a book that combines all his years of study, practice and personal experience. Brad believes parents are calling out for these resources to assist them and to assist he provides free information through his website and Facebook site and tells people his book is on loan from the library. He also runs On Track Parenting education sessions through local libraries across Queensland and has held The Five Family Rules workshop to assist local families. "I believe the breakdown of society starts with families, because family is everything," he said. "If families and parents don't have a solid framework from which to draw from it makes life so much tougher. There

are many families out there who do not have access to support, or even the latest tools, tips and strategies, to help them to move forward. So, if they can have access to simple, easy and effective tools, then that can give them the basis to get back on track with their lives. It also means these families can now focus on accomplishing their bigger goals rather than dealing with ongoing problems which are holding them back." At this time of year kids will soon be heading back to school and many will be starting new classes and new schools and may be anxious about the year ahead, so we asked Brad for a few tips parents could take on board to help them. "Stay calm and relaxed which will reduce the anxiety for all family members, including the kids during this time of change," he said. "Establish some routines and rituals at the start of the year that will allow a

smoother transition for both the kids and the parents. Remind everybody to stay positive, show your excitement, and see this change as a good thing. And remember, It's normal to feel a little anxious, especially when you are stretching your comfort zone. The great thing about stretching your comfort zone is it will allow both the parents and the kids to build their self-esteem and self-confidence, and they will also get to feel they are in control of their personal growth. Find ways to celebrate the milestones and that will make the transition more enjoyable and successful." Brad suggests if they continue to struggle, seek support from the counsellors at school, your GP or an external psychologist.

MINISTER BIDS A FOND FAREWELL There wasn't a dry eye in St Andrew's Presbyterian Church at Tewantin on the last Sunday of 2018 as Minister the Reverend Keith Mayers took the pulpit for the last time. The occasional fisherman had been St Andrew's full time Minister for the past 33 years. The congregation packed the church to hear tributes, both in song and in verse and of course to hear his final message. Keith spoke of the importance of the Christmas gift through the infant Jesus and the eternal rewards through living a full and happy life by simply opening our hearts. Session Clerk Colin Brown said this was what Keith had done in his ministry for the past 33 years. "He has been a living example of putting faith into practice by helping the needy, offering words of everyday encouragement and just being there when needed" he said. Over 130 people were on hand to hear his final sermon and wish a fond farewell to Keith and wife Nell at a lunch held in their honour after the service. As for retirement, Keith and Nell are looking forward to a few sleep ins and spending more time with their grandchildren. While Keith would like to re-acquaint himself with fishing.

BAZ JUMPS IN TO JOIN BILL GATES CLAN Cooran showjumper Billy Raymont has capped off a successful overseas campaign by seeing the horse that he took to the top, Oaks Redwood, known as Baz, sold to Bill Gates' showjumper daughter, Jennifer. Billy took on Baz, and started competing him at World Cup level, in October last year. Both horse and rider quickly formed a formidable team, beating Australia's best, and winning the 10-event Pacific League World Cup series. Baz's owners financially backed this horse and rider team in a nine-month overseas campaign that took them to Asia, Europe and North America. This very expensive investment payed great dividends, because Billy was able to give Baz the confidence to place consistently against the world's best, adding enormous value to the horse before he was sold. Initially, Billy and Baz travelled to Hong Kong where, as wildcard entries of unproven ability, they shone in the Longines Masters, in a field of 30 of the world's very best horses and riders. On the opening night, in the 1.45m class against the clock, Billy jumped Baz a perfectly executed round to finish in 4th position against the worldclass field. They were in the prize money for the rest of the series, too. The pair then flew to Europe, to be based in Holland. They went on to win prize money in competitions in Holland, Germany, Belgium and France.

Billy's new fillies.

Billy and Baz on the World Cup stage. Billy's Australian Pacific League series win qualified him to compete in the FEI World Cup Finals in Paris. There, they once again proved that they could hold their own competing on the world stage, finishing in a very respectable 32nd position. On the final night, in the 1.55m Grand Prix, riding against the crème de la crème of jumping, Billy and Baz placed a very impressive 9th. After Billy had a brief trip back to Australia, on his return the two came 18th out of 147 of the world's best in Lier, Belgium. Having missed the first week of

this two-week, 10-class competition, and only getting to compete in three classes, this was a truly spectacular result. They then headed to the US, to join the other members of the Australian Team in Tryon, for the World Equestrian Games (WEG). They finished the top 25 individually and helped the team finish in 6th position. This qualified Australia for showjumping at Tokyo in 2020. This result was the best that an Australian showjumping team has ever had at a World Games. After returning to Europe, Oaks Redwood was sold to the stables of Jos Verlooy, who competed him

briefly, and successfully, before selling him last week to Jennifer Gates. Jennifer is now training with Baz under the world's number one showjumper, Harry Smolders. Baz has proved to be a very adaptable horse. After being in the one family, the Tuckers, in Western Australia for most of his life to relocate to the other side of the country, go to a new home, with a new rider, and to quickly rise up to the top of the Australian league, is remarkable. Bas is known to be a calm and consistent horse, who always gives his best. Billy, as his rider, with his superb eye for placement of the horse in front of the jumps, and strategic planning of the riding of each course, was able to give Baz the confidence, and experience, to take his place among the world's best. Back in Noosa Billly's stables have two new fillies, with impeccable showjumping bloodlines and a bright future awaits. ●

COMMUNITY RALLIES TO SAVE THE GLOSSIES

AUSTRALIA DAY ATTRACTS ALL CREATURES

Community support for the iconic Glossy Black Cockatoos at Sunrise Beach is gaining momentum with a petition reaching over 1300 signatures within a few days and steadily growing. The Sunrise Beach neighbourhood initiative called Glossy Team Sunrise (GTS) launched the online petition to prevent the clear felling of Glossy Black Cockatoo feed trees in their neighbourhood. The threat of five hectares of native bushland being cleared for a retirement village and aged-care facility came to many in the Sunrise Beach community as a shock. The will to protect the glossies and their native habitat brought together a diverse group of locals made up of conservationists, wildlife photographers, architects, teachers, nurses, artists, real estate agents, ecologists, cleaners and more. They decided to form Glossy Team Sunrise in September 2018. GTS collaborators all share a love for the native post-dunal bushland called Wallum and its iconic Glossy Black Cockatoo,

Would you like to get up close to some snake, lizards, turtles and crocodiles this Australia Day? Then come along to the Noosa Australia Day Festival on the Noosa River and visit Luke's Reptile Kingdom. Luke Cheyne started collecting reptiles from the age of five and his love for the animals continues to grow along with his ambitions to teach people more about them. Growing up as a show kid his life was regularly on the road travelling with his family from show to show. Six years ago he fulfilled his lifelong ambition to open a reptile park on the Gold Coast but now his travelling spirit has returned and this week launched the country's biggest mobile Reptile Kingdom at the Showman's Guild at Yatala, south of Brisbane. "We'll have up to 500 animals and take them to venues like agricultural shows and schools," Luke said of the new show which will operate from a converted semi-trailer and include display enclosures. Luke will bring along some nonvenomous reptiles when he visits Noosa to join a diverse range of entertaining activities, music and food at the Noosa Australia Day Festival on Saturday 26 January from 7am to 5pm. Festival organiser Jacqui Nichols said entry to the festival was free and funds raised would support local charities United Synergies, Katie Rose Cottage and St Vincent de Paul. "We'll have a knockout line-up for everyone so bring the family, grab your friends and come along to the Noosa Australia Day Festival," Jacqui said. "We're bringing Lions Park in Noosaville to life with Cheap Fakes headlining great Aussie talent on the main stage, and plenty of kids'

Calyptorhynchus lathami, listed as vulnerable. Spokesman Bob Carey said the area to be cleared was a well known glossy hotspot and GTS want to make sure the impact on these birds is minimised, having approached the developer Blue Care (owned by Uniting Church) to protect and retain as much of the native flora and fauna as possible. Bob said the Change.org petition was set up to because the group believed it was important for Uniting Church to know that the community was greatly concerned about the destruction of Wallum habitat. "We hope to get the best outcomes for the birds and the community," he said GTS have received letters of support including from Birdlife Southern Queensland, NICA, Noosa and District Landcare and the NPA Bird Observers' Group. GTS activists are anticipating a meeting with the developer Blue Care in early January and are eagerly awaiting the operational plan to be published showing how many Glossy feed trees will be retained. ●

TURKEY SETTLES ON PRIME LAND BY MARGARET MACCOLL Bush turkeys have certainly established their place in Noosa society with their obvious presence in Noosa Heads National Park, their images on tee shirts and a hard-tomiss mural at Noosa Junction but one turkey has lately established his domain on one of Noosa's prime locations with a Park Road address and an enviable view across Main Beach. Forget council approvals and building codes it has been single-footed hard work and determination that has earned the bird his spot. Over recent weeks he's been noticed diligently working on his nesting mound, scraping up leaf litter and compost and checking its temperature with his beak to ensure it's just right. And what female wouldn't be impressed? It's a tough life for a bush turkey. If he did

NOOSA COUNCIL ROAD SPEND UNCHANGED IN PLAN BY MARGARET MACCOLL Noosa Council's Road Infrastructure Asset Management Plan which it announced on Friday has not heralded any increase in spending on the region's road system. The plan which Council is required to produce under its statutory obligations sets out the shire's road assets and its projected spending on capital and maintenance work over the next 10 years.

The 2018-2019 road budget remains unchanged with a capital investment of $6.9m for road infrastructure which equates to about 23 per cent of Council's $29.5m capital works program. Road maintenance in the 2018-2019 budget included about $4.2m for road resealing and $800,000 spending on gravel roads including $410,000 for resheeting and $390,000 on hinterland safety upgrades.

The Road Infrastructure Asset Management Plan earmarked spending of more than $200m in capital and maintenance work over the next decade with operational and maintenance expenses expected to cost about 14 per cent of Council's $90m annual budget. Mayor Tony Wellington said the plan the detailed Plan provided a framework to make informed decisions on current

and future projects. "It covers everything from 11,000 directional signs, 243 bus stops, road barriers and kerbing to the actual roads themselves. Across the Shire, we look after 670 kilometres of sealed roads and 197 kilometres of gravel roads," he said. Cr Wellington said the plan showed that a majority of Council's sealed and gravel roads were in good condition. ●

SERIOUS BACKYARD CRICKET BY MARGARET MACCOLL Forget the Australia vs India match, it was tense play and plenty of action at Peregian Beach park when residents and visitors joined in for an impromptu cricket match while they waited for the Village Flicks film, Finding Dory, to begin last Thursday night. ●

Leo fixes his attention on the ball. Photos: Rob Maccoll.

It's a hit but it's up in the air.

Finley goes in for the catch.

And he's out.

BABY SNAKES ARRIVING AT A PLACE NEAR YOU Baby snakes are on their way as birthing and hatching season has arrived, according to snake catcher Luke Huntley who provides some tips on what to do if you come across them. "For the next few months we will watching as the snakes either hatch out of the egg or with some species give birth to their babies," he said. So what should you do if you see a snake? The first thing to do is remain calm and call a professional like myself to come out or just get some friendly advice over the phone. Do not interfere with the snake. Its much safer for you to either call me out or leave it to do its thing. Keep a safe distance

and remove all children and animals from the area. Do not kill it! If you try to you've just increased your chances of getting bitten by 85 per cent. Plus they are protected and it is illegal to kill one. What if you get a snake in your house? Will there be lots of babies all through the house? Well if you're unlucky enough to have a female snake come inside and give birth then yes. But usually not. Most of the time they get lost and can't find their way out. Sometimes they are just escaping the blistering summer sun. Snakes get hot too. If there's one will there be more? This is perhaps the most common question I get asked. When baby snakes are

born and hatch they will leave. For a few days after a hatching or birthing there may be a few that hang around for a bit. You'll certainly notice a few around for a couple of days or maybe a week. But they will move on. If you're concerned call me.If there's babies wheres the mum? So the snakes on the Sunshine Coast are not maternal. They will not hang around once the babies are born or give birth. They will leave and do their own thing. They are very different to us. So that's it really. I hope I could give you all a bit of useful information for the upcoming tide of snakes. If you need help phone Luke 24/7 on 0499 920 290. ●

NATURAL APPEAL PROPERTY prices in Noosa boomed in 2018. Unit prices sky-rocketed an incredible 12.2 per cent over the year to a median price of $550,000, and house prices jumped 8.7 per cent to $715,000, making it the best performing market in the state. High-profile record sales highlighted a strengthening market while places like Sydney and Melbourne were coming to terms with a market adjustment. As the new year begins, Garwoods principal Theodora Garwood says local property prices remain steady. "Higher sales on beachfront land has put Noosa on the map, but the average couple living here wants to be able to afford live here," she says. "We see Sydney and Melbourne people as the reason prices took a huge hike ...

and we think prices are well deservedly on track. "I think Noosa was undervalued for some time. I can't see future prices rise as the market softens ... but steadily going along with opportunities to be found." If you're thinking about selling, now is the time, Theodora says, and listings may be on the market for more than 90 days, with sales volumes slowing. "Things are stable, but if you want to take the opportunity, now is the time to do it," she says. "There's always a downturn in sales around an election. If we're going to the polls in May, get in before that happens." With changes to the Noosa market traditionally lagging behind other parts of the country, David Garwood says there

will be an adjustment of some kind in the market at some stage. "But no one knows where or how much," he says. Having worked through three property cycles, David says the key to selling during uncertain times is how a property is marketed and knowing which agent will do the best job for you. CoreLogic's head of research Tim Lawless says Sydney and Melbourne's markets, and most regions around the country in 2018 recorded weaker housing market results as a reaction to tighter credit conditions. "Overall, housing market conditions showed a diverse performance over the year, demonstrating how varied the market is based on location and price points," he says.

With continued growth in infrastructure on the Sunshine Coast, improving digital connectivity and Noosa's pristine environment and lifestyle appeal, Theodora is confident people will always want to live and invest in Noosa. "Noosa is a microeconomy, it's survived all the slings and arrows ... and people keep coming here because we're very special and I'm proud of that," she says. "It's such a beautiful place to live ... it has so much to offer from the beaches and National Park to the river, its' pretty special, and that will always keep Noosa appealing. "We will wait and see what happens in other areas of Australia, but we are a micro-economy and we have weathered all storms." ●

MAKING the choice to downsize can be daunting for many used to sprawling, family-home living. Clo Studios manager Chloe Tozer has been helping downsizers transition to spacious apartment living at Parkridge Noosa, from assisting with decluttering to choosing new furniture to suit a new home and lifestyle. "We have a very simple four-box method when it comes to decluttering Throw, Keep, Donate and/or Sell," she says. "This is the opportunity for residents to start afresh with a blend of their beloved furnishing treasures and newly found gems." Here are Chloe's tips for downsizing: 1. Analyse the functionality of your furniture Decide how you want to use the spaces on offer. This will ensure your furniture noosatoday.com.au

selection suits the functionality of your home. 2. Spatial planning Each piece of furniture will be positioned to scale within floor plans, this ensures any existing or new furniture will fit into the planned spaces. Less is often more! 3. Declutter There are a number of options to sell furniture when downsizing, without the stress of online advertisements. Check out The Shed http://theshedsca.com.au 4. Knowing what to keep and what to get rid of: Before commencing the Throw, Keep, Donate and Sell process, ask yourself does the item have: sentimental value, monetary value, investment value, emotional value, how relevant is it in your life? ●

CLIMATE CHANGE BASED ON EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE

LENSCAPE

John Mikkelsen is one of many who keep asking for empirical evidence for climate change. Physics and chemistry like all the hard sciences including climate change are based on empirical evidence. The problem here is that people who claim otherwise lack the education to understand the evidence. For example, the ability of carbon dioxide to absorb and emit infrared (heat) makes it a green- house gas. This ability is the normal way of measuring the content of CO2 in flowing gases for medical and industrial purposes. As a start, I would suggest he look up Capnography in Wikipedia as a monitoring tool for use in anesthesia. Is that sufficiently empirical for him? ● Dr Ken Lynn (physicist) Noosaville

CO2 INCREASE NOT DISPROVEN The deniers of anthropogenic climate change have a tenuous understanding of science but they still love the jargon. John Mikkelsen showed this last week, and he's not the first, by using the words "empirical evidence" to make what was otherwise just his opinion about climate change sound more "sciency". Empirical evidence is data that is measured and recorded. Carefully. It is pretty much incontrovertible as long as your instruments are calibrated and operated correctly. But, to conclude rising atmospheric CO2 has a major influence on increasing land, sea and air temperatures, you have to measure a host of other phenomena that might also, conceivably, be playing a part. This could mean millions of data points being recorded every day around the globe. It takes massive resources to turn such empirical evidence into a robust theory about changes in our climate. Nobody does that for a ten grand prize when the consequence of not reaching a workable hypothesis could be so dire for humanity. As for the word "proof," a scientific hypothesis can be either rejected or it can be modified to make it better, but it can never be "proven." This is a consequence of logic and the Victorian loco engineer that Mr Mikkelsen mentions is probably well aware his ten grand is safe. We build our knowledge on what we have observed in the past but true scientists always recognise that future information and insights may require major modification, or even abandonment, of hitherto very useful hypotheses. There are many precedents for this in science but few, or even none, in politics. The best workable scientific hypothesis about climate change we have at the moment is that increasing CO2 is a major factor in

Farewell 2018. Leanne Airey captured an image showing the last glimpse of the sun for 2018 as it descended over the Pomona countryside on New Year's Eve. If you would like to submit your images to Lenscape, please email newsdesk@noosatoday.com.au global warming. This cannot be proven but it can be disproven. To paraphrase Professor Sir Karl Popper, one of the most influential philosophers of science: No number of confirming observations can prove a theory but one contradiction may prove it wrong. Mr Mikkelsen and others might better serve the community by providing actual science that disproves the current predominant working hypothesis. Until then we should ignore all pseudo-scientific attempts to muddy the waters and act now to mitigate the adverse consequences, predicted by over 80% of published climate scientists, of continuing to pump CO2 and fugitive methane into the atmosphere. For instance, you could halve your meat consumption. It would likely be better for your bowel, as well as our planet's, health. ● Chris Hindmarsh Tinbeerwah

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE No sniping. "If you have a go you get a go" so the story goes. Hard working Australian families gave a go-ahead to those who had a go at making Australia Great Again. From the word go, families saw the no-go on climate change, the go-slow on the go-to for a Banking Royal Commission and the go-getting change of three leaders. Now gotta go is the go-to. Fair dinkum. ● Margaret Wilkie, Peregian Beach.

MY KITCHEN RULES When only the best will do! For your own 5 star sparkling clean.......

CLIMATE CHANGE OFFER ON THE TABLE One of your correspondents (NT 20\12) recently claimed that a prize of $10,000 for anyone who could produce empirical evidence that CO2 was the main driver of climate change has gone unclaimed for 10 years. Imagine that! The average person might rush to conclude that there is no evidence that CO2 is causing climate change. To understand the trickery in this offer it is only necessary to understand that the term "empirical" means the results of a scientific experiment or direct observation. In other words, to claim this prize, someone would have to either do an experiment with one Earth being subjected to increasing concentrations of CO2 and an identical but remote Earth not exposed to CO2 or be able to directly observe the CO2 causing climate change. You can see how silly either of these scenarios is and why the prize can never be claimed and why the prize could have been $10 trillion. There is, to be sure, insurmountable, consistent correlative evidence that CO2 is the driver of global warming. This is the kind of evidence used to show that smoking causes lung cancer. Let me counter. I will offer a prize of $10,000 to anyone who can produce even strong, reproducible evidence that something other than CO2 is the main driver

of global warming, and therefore climate change. This, of course, is not a trick. It is to establish my faith in the centuries of combined care and attention that world experts have given to understanding global warming and climate change. There are likely no climate scientists who do not secretly wish that someone did in fact demonstrate that global warming was caused by something over which we have no control. That would certainly take the pressure off. If I have to pay this prize, it will be with sweet content that we can continue to pollute and not give a hoot. Likewise, if such evidence is found, my $10000 will be paltry compared to the millions of dollars that the fossil fuel industry has always offered for it. No one has collected that one either. Expect to hear from me in another 10 years, Mr Mikkelsen. I feel quite safe, sadly. (and if there is room in this column) I did follow the suggestion by your correspondent to look up the conclusions to the Porto Conference 2018. My conclusions are: 1) the conference was a sham. There were no scientific papers presented that support current research into global warming. 2) It is no wonder that mainstream media did not cover the story. Headlines might have read "Denialists Fail to Warm". There was no news in it. 3) One of the main speakers was Lord Christopher Monckton. This immediately gives a knowing glow to the whole show. We've had the Lord entertain us here in Noosa before. ● Steve Hall Cooroy

ILLEGAL ENTRY CRIMINAL You mob do not get it, Mr. Venturini, was being polite in his dislike of these so called ''Reffos" the reason in my humble opinion is that they are "Criminals". They tried to enter our Country Illegally after paying people smugglers money, to get them to Australia. For this they were put into dentition, three meals a day, bed, medical, dental, allowance and legal aid. What should have happened is that as "criminals" they all should have been put in goal, not dentition. Sent back to where they came from on the next available plane. Please remember that these so called "Reffos" paid the people smuggler's money. Mr Venturini's family and many others came to this Country "LEGALLY" as fair dinkum "Reffos" with very little and none of the support these "Criminals" were given so why should they and the rest of us Australian's who understand what it is to break our laws, by "ILLEGALLY" entering our Country not be offended. Wake up. ● Edward Callaghan, Noosa

WHAT’S ON

FINAL VIEW OF THE TOAD Winner of last years Anywhere Theatre Festival, and following four sell out shows, The Rogue Toad is back, and there is one more opportunity to see this hilarious show, Australia Day. Written and Directed by Tania Nash, the play, set on the Noosa River, tells the story of five anthropomorphic friends who set out on an adventure and find prejudice and love along the way. Boarding the ferry in Tewantin at Noosa Marina, enjoy the scenery as you watch The Rogue Toad performed as you cruise the river picking up characters on the way, including a family of friendly blue tongues. Ratty, an Australian bush rat, loves helping people out and when his mate from the UK, Mole, asks him a favour, he can't refuse. But Ratty's not smart enough to help him out all on his own, so he enlists his mate Toad to help, and this is where the fun and games begin. Toad is a little prejudiced in his thinking and then there's the beautiful Turkish badger and we are in for a hilarious story of love, mateship and a little humble pie. This is a fabulous way to spend a lazy few hours celebrating Australia Day and enjoying the beautiful scenery, enjoying a few glasses of bubbly and laughing at the antics of some clever animal friends.

HUSTLE N GROOVE AT THE IMPERIAL

Ticket price includes a couple of glasses of sparkling wine, beer or OJ and a packet of chips and the journey takes about two hours.Book at wwwtrybooking.com/XLUR or phone Tania Nash on 0414761772. ●

The Rumbrellas, Arabesk and Dan Horne will take to the stage in The Bunker for 'HUSTLE n' GROOVE' at the Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Saturday 12 January. Arabesk, the Australian songwriting award winners in 2011 and 2017, will lift your spirits with a touch of tango, reggae rhythms, jazz flavoured funky beats and even a traditional waltz. English born Dan Horne is a foot stompin' Australian blues and roots singer/ songwriter who began his music career in 2014 performing on the streets, busking and travelling. His "one-man-band" style is a mesmerising blend of foot drums, harmonica and multiple guitars and his laid back attitude and ability to engage any crowd is instantly infectious. Since the release of his debut album 'From the Roots', Dan has rigorously toured Australia, playing festivals and shows across the country.The Rumbrellas are a three piece explosion of funk, soul, reggae and hip hop from the Sunshine Coast. Fronted by Ryan Giles, principle songwriter, together with drummer /producer, Mark Paltridge and Justin Wernicke in charge of all things guitar and bass, The Rumbrellas have drawn inspiration from the sounds of the late 80s to mid 90s hiphop and indie world. Doors open 7.30pm with tickets pre-sale $15 (+ booking fee) through Oztix or phone the Imperial Hotel on 5442 8811. Tickets $20 at the door. ●

I was lucky enough to have my share of the offerings of the sea, yet the sea can be an uncompromising mistress, and break you on her shores or sink you deep into her depths, where you rise gasping and grasping for breath and life.

TRIO OF WINS FOR TNT SENIOR CRICKET WITH RANDALL WOODLEY Three of TNT's senior cricket teams had decisive wins in their One -Day matches last Saturday. The Firsts won by 113 runs, the Seconds defeated Nambour by 5 wickets and the Fourths had a great win over Yandina. FIRSTS Playing the Nambour Cutters at Read Park and batting first, the TNT's batting line-up achieved what they had been threatening to do all season - the top order scoring solid runs. In fact, six of the top seven all scored more than 20 each. Chris Wright set the scene with a forceful 66 and Captain Jake Dennien continued his batting resurgence with 58. Other scores were Ben Gear 45, Jarrod Officer 41, Andrew Kratzmann 31 no and Adam Curry 23. At the end of the 50 overs TNT had posted 6 for 292, a very formidable target. There were two big partnerships during the morning102 by Wright and Gear and 92 by Officer

and Dennien and later a 22 ball 55 by Kratzmann and Curry to finish the innings. After lunch, Nambour needed to start well and keep ahead of TNT's run rate. Their premier batsman, Steve Ledger certainly did this and although hampered by a groin injury he scored an impressive 73 off 67 balls which included three sixers. He punished all the bowlers but unfortunately his team mates were unable to back him up. The Cutters were eventually all out for 179 in the 39th over. The outstanding bowling performance was by Jacob Dennien who took 6 wickets for 26 (to go with his 58) which included 3 catches by his father, wicket-keeper Troy. The other wickets were shared by Tom Freshwater, Scott Aufderheide and Lachie Gunner. The only down side of the win was the 20 wides bowled by the team. This will need to be improved on when they play in the One-day finals. SECONDS Bowling first against Nambour at the showgrounds, it was left to the TNT team's teenage change bowlers to start the

As well as massage, Clint offers the ‘fine tuning’ of Energy Healing, Orion /Chiron Healing, Reiki, and Chakra balancing. Those familiar with the benefits of massage on the physical and mental space can add to that feeling of ‘surrender’. Energy Healing can increase the benefit of massage, by helping the patient acknowledge the tension / stress on a deeper level, often releasing its ‘hold’. Sessions can be tailored to suit each individual’s needs. Often stress and anxiety become a physical tension within the muscular system. Modern New Age writers, scientists, practitioners, even mystics from the past acknowledge stress and tension become almost infused within our cells / physical body.

Opening the batting for the ladies Thunder team Margit Cruise and Rachael Martin. Yandina to 205 after their 40 overs. TNT's innings started positively but then two wickets fell in succession. Teenager Jack Saunders came in and steadied the ship and with Tony Watson steered the team to within 69 runs of the win before Jack fell. Justin Talbot joined Watson at the crease and bludgeoned 42 in quick order to knock Yandina out of the game. Player of the match was Tony Watson who opened the batting and held his bat through the innings for a 74 n.o. TNT reached the score of 207 after 35 overs and with 5 wickets in hand to secure a well-deserved victory. WOMENS TEAM. The TNT women played Palmwoods in a T20 match at Read Park on Sunday. Batting first the TNT team registered a score of 7-62 after being in real trouble at 5-28. Top score was Paula McKie with 17no. Palmwoods got off to a flyer in reply, before Maddie Duncan's 5-24 made inroads to put pressure back on them. However, Palmwoods passed the home side's score in the 11th over. â—?

wickets falling. Harrison Lea took 2 for 13 off 6 overs and Keegan Bean snared 2 for 17 in his 8 overs to have the opposition 5 for 62. Then Todd McNamee grabbed two wickets and after another to Tommy Green plus a couple of run-outs, Nambour finished on 134. Heading out to bat, the TNT's captain was confident his openers would find some form and get them off to a good start. His confidence was rewarded and with 4 batsmen scoring freely, the target score was passed in the 27th over for the loss of only 4 wickets. Best scores were from Tristan Griffin, returning to form with 27, Harry Sheppard 26 no, Todd McNamee 23 and Michael Perry 19. The win keeps the team in the top 4 with more wins on the cards in the weeks ahead. THIRDS Losing the toss, TNT were asked to bowl first against Coolum. Despite some good opening bowling by Mitch Langan, the opposition got off to a strong start and after their 40 overs had scored 198. Troy Evans was the pick of the bowlers with 3-29. Others to take wickets were Wayne Moore, Cody Wright and Jason Toohey. Dropped chances were again the story of the day which left Coolum off the hook. In reply TNT scored 136. Best of the batsmen were Michael Sobey 36, Brendan Wright 28, Reece Langan 22 and a quick 15 by Kent Officer. FOURTHS travelled to Yandina for a match between two teams placed equal 2nd on the ladder. Playing on a synthetic grass pitch and a small ground that the home side have been scoring 300 on a regular basis, it was always going to be a tight game. After losing another toss TNT were sent into the field with Yandina hoping to post another massive score. TNT's openers started well, bowling nice tight lines with Luke Anstey picking up an early wicket. The middle 15 overs saw TNT taking another 5 wickets and slowed Yandina's run rate. Good catches to Brendan Chaplin and Naveen Chand kept

It seems an already busy year for the club, with the Premier sevens starting on the 12th January and the eights starting early February. Along with other events throughout the year including pennants and club championship, the club will hold events in the annual Sunshine Coast Winter Carnival. In a first the Ladies Bowls which returned on 8 January will be played in the evening as a new idea to escape the extreme heat of January. If successful other bowls days may be changed when summer returns later in the year. The club has a new treasurer Rudy Boyer and thanks former treasurer Robyn McAnelly for her work as treasurer and club chairman prior to that.

LIFE OF BRINE

OLD PHIL'S 2019 ALMANAC JANUARY

Noosaville, special mention must be made of the use of stop-go signs to completely confuse visitors during busy periods," Cr Wellington said. "Some of those people will never come again, so that's a huge step forward."

Police were called to quell riots outside the offices of Noosa Today when the January 3 edition of the newspaper failed to appear. Well actually, Patrolman Pierre just happened to be passing by on his segue and was able to calm a couple of superannuated surfers who were furiously bashing on the office doors, demanding their weekly hit of Life of Brine. They explained that they were already hot under the collar over local media, having been duped by another paper that published photos of the 2019 New Year fireworks display 12 hours before it happened. Pierre whacked them about the buttocks with his truncheon and let them go, in a welcome return to old school policing.

MARCH Despite the threat of retaliatory roadblocks and traffic chaos, event organisers and Tourism Noosa gear up for the biggest events season yet, kicking off with a scaleddown-but-bigger Noosa Festival of Surfing, and culminating in a Guinness Book of Records showdown between the Food and Wine Festival and Noosa Alive to build the biggest beach bar ever seen anywhere in the world since the beginning of time. (I'm not making this up, I'm reading it straight from a press release.) Floor plans divulged exclusively to Noosa Today by one of the organisers who didn't wish to be named, reveal massive floating pontoons supporting a multi-storey construction covering all of Laguna Bay and dwarfing the Noosa Heads Surf Club. Bars, discos and spas are expected to be able to accommodate up to 30,000 people at a time. The spokesman tells NT that high rise health and safety experts from Sydney's Opal Tower have been retained to ensure that the visitor experience is unsurpassed.

FEBRUARY Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington declares the holiday season anti-tourist initiative a tremendous success, with occupancy rates down more than 25 percent and Hastings Street businesses reporting their worst January trading since Bob Abbott was a little fellow. Speaking during his weekly Address to the Shire on Noosa FM, he pledges to continue the campaign to prevent day, week and even month trippers loving Noosa to death. "While the Lions Park seasonal parking lot caused the usual gridlock with cars stretched back to the Junction and

Police arrest Elvis Fan Club president Little Mick after they discover the Elvis statue in a recently-constructed shrine in his Tewantin backyard. Out on bail awaiting the hearing, Mick tells NT: "It was a stupid thing to do, but he looked so lonely. Pardon me if I'm sentimental, but now and then there's a fool such as I."

AUGUST Noosa Council announces a huge celebration over the summer to mark the first anniversary of the award-winning Little Cove boardwalk. In preparation for the event, the boardwalk is to be closed to the public from the beginning of December to the end of January. "We certainly don't want any daytrippers scuffing the boards or vandalizing the surfboard shower recess," a Council spokesperson tells NT. "It is a work of art and should be treated as such." The public will also be banned from attending the birthday party, with headline bands The SandFlys and The Myths already booked to perform for a small group of dignitaries, sports and rock stars, celebrity chefs, high end real estate agents and councilors. "Joe Public will not be forgotten," says the spokesperson. "The celebration will be shown on a big screen at the Aussie Rules ground, with vendors supplying ten dollar fair trade coffee and other goodies."

"Nothing mysterious about it," Noosa Elvis Fan Club president Little Mick tells Noosa Today. "This is a clearcut case of criminal abduction, possibly even worse. And what are the police doing? Nothing. Well, they ain't never caught a rabbit and they ain't no friends of mine."

HOOK, LINE & SINKER

JACK MANGROVE

HOLIDAY FUN CONTINUES Now is the time of year where the river/estuary system is the most popular place to fish. Noosa has multiple places for anglers looking to wet a line so this helps keep the crowds down. Starting with the river mouth there are various gutters and deep water drop offs for those looking to cast larger 3-4 inch soft plastics for flathead and trevally. If throwing bait then find the slower moving waters and use a running sinker rig for flathead and whiting in the shallows. The dog beach is another excellent option with multiple places to fish and there are some deep water holes and great structure from the trees now fallen into the water. This would be an excellent place to find mangrove jacks. These fish require some heavy gear if you intend to try and land one of these. Further upstream between the lakes expect to find jacks along the mangrove edges and jewies in the deeper sections. Using prawn imitation lures and live bait is best especially at night. If in a kayak be sure to put out a couple of diving lures as you move around as these are great for trevally, tailor and flathead. With all the rains last week the freshwater still has the crabs fired up so be sure to get the pots out there early and use fresh baits. In the freshwater the bite has been a little quieter but some quality fish have been caught off the top. Be sure to approach the snags as quietly as possible and throw a mix of weedless soft plastics and medium sized surface lures. Be sure to put in plenty of pauses to tempt shy fish from their cover. Once the sun comes up fish the deeper holes

and drop offs with blades and soft vibes. If struggling to get a bite try dropping your leader down a few pounds. Surf fishing has been a little quieter due to the swell and winds, however the points have offered some protection with smaller school mackerel, bream and trevally caught. The middle groyne has been providing anglers with flathead, bream, dart and whiting during low swell and south east winds. Offshore the bigger boats have made the most of conditions with the spotty mackerel showing up from Sunshine Reef to Castaways. These fish have been taking smaller 30gm slugs and fast retrieved jerk shad soft plastics on 3/4oz jig heads. Coral trout have also been caught on Sunshine Reef with these fish taking live baits or 5/0 gang hooked pilchards. Further wide around North Reef we have seen some great jewfish, snapper, cobia, red throat, mahi mahi, longtail and yellowfin tuna. Lastly out wider toward Double Island there have been solid snapper, cobia, trevally, gold band snapper, jewfish, perch, longtail tuna and estuary cod caught on a mix of floated pilchards and paternoster rigs with heavier snapper leads. Heavier gear is best when fishing these areas as there are always sharks swimming about looking to take advantage of your catch. Don't forget to take a few spanner crab dillies with you and drop them off on the sandy reef edges. So on behalf of Jack Mangrove, best of luck on your fishing adventures! â—?

SPORT TODAY SPINNERS BRING NATIONAL TOURNAMENT TO THE COAST The Sunshine Coast will once again play host to Australia's biggest wheelchair basketball tournament, when the Suncoast Spinners wheelchair basketball club welcomes teams from around Australia and New Zealand next week. The annual Suncoast Spinners Wheelchair Basketball Tournament, in its 13th year, will host 19 teams and 130 players from Friday 11 January to Sunday 13 January at the Caloundra Indoor Stadium, North Street, Golden Beach. The Suncoast Spinners, a volunteer-led and run organisation, was started by parents of people with disabilities who recognised their children did not have enough sporting

opportunities. Today the organisation runs weekly that includes skills, drills and regular games, for both people with disability and able-bodied players from the Sunshine Coast as part of the clubs Reverse Inclusion Program. Reverse inclusion refers to a sporting movement where able-bodied players participate in sports which have been traditionally played by people with physical disabilities. Suncoast Spinners President and Paralympian Bridie Kean said the project has enabled more inclusion in the community. "We identified that wheelchair basketball could be a tool for inclusion, a sport that anyone can play," she said.

"While people who need to use wheelchairs might not be able to get out of those wheelchairs and play stand up basketball, people who can run sit in wheelchairs and everyone can play together. "Being a Paralympic athlete, I just want to see people getting the same opportunities I had. "It was really nice to have a high performance career but one thing I didn't have are memories of me playing wheelchair basketball with my siblings, but now people have that opportunity." The tournament will have three divisions; Premier, which welcomes Australia's best Paralympic and national teams, and A grade

and B grade which welcomes amateur teams from around Australia. The professionals and beginners will play alongside each other, continuing the inclusion theme across the event. "Kids who might be playing their first game of wheelchair basketball are on the court next to their Paralympic heroes, it's a nice unique part of the event," Bridie said. The Suncoast Spinners will have three teams participating and Bridie encouraged locals to get involved and support the tournament. Entry is free for spectators and the grand final will be played on Sunday from 12.30pm. â—?
