The wreckage of Amy Abraham’s vehicle.
Notorious bend the scene of second fatal accident P OLICE have renewed their call for drivers to take care, particularly during wet weather, following a car accident last week which claimed the life of a 19-year-old Tamborine university student. Amy Abrahams was killed around 8am on Wednesday when she lost control of her car on a bend of the Tamborine Mountain Road and slid sideways, slamming into a tree. The sole occupant of the vehicle, Amy died at the scene and it took 40 minutes before the crew from the Tamborine Mountain Fire and Rescue service could recover her body from the mangled wreckage. The accident occurred at the same spot where a truck driver was killed in October 2005. The police Forensic Crash Unit is investigating the accident, but light rain which contributed to a slippery road surface is believed to have been a factor

in the accident. On the day before Amy’s death, another vehicle had left the road and finished up just a short distance from the tree which has now been involved in two fatalities. The driver was not injured in this accident. Nearby residents describe the bend, which carries just a single warning arrow, as a “deceptive piece of road” which over the years has been the site of numerous accidents. Amy Abrahams was a former Tamborine Mountain College prefect, and her death has rocked the close-knit school community, as well as colleagues at the Tamborine Mountain Pharmacy where she worked part-time while studying pharmacy at Griffith University. College principal, June Melbourne, has paid tribute to a student who was “an excellent role model and an inspiration to all” (see page 3).

‘She was an inspiration to all’ VALE AMY ABRAHAMS 8.06.93 ~ 29.05.13
MY Abrahams joined Tamborine Mountain College in Year 9, 2008. She moved from Cairns to pursue her love and passion in equestrian. It was this interest that helped develop the college’s equestrian team that won many events and actually took out the State Championships – Eventing in 2011. It was the recognition of this equestrian skill that resulted in the Pierre de Coubertin Award and the Professor Jack Walton Sportsperson of the Year Award. Amy was a prefect and sports captain in her final year. She was an excellent role model and an inspiration to all – always hard-working, dedicated, polite and helpful. She was recognised academically with guaranteed admission to Griffith University and was following a career into pharmacy. At the college Year 12 formal, held at the Palazzo Versace, Amy was absolutely stunning. She was beautiful inside and out. To lose a young person with so much to live for is tragic. Life gone in an instant, due to a car accident in wet conditions on a lonely country road. Our deepest sympathy goes out to her family and friends. Amy will be missed and never forgotten. Her

ORK began last week on reconstructing the section of road that was severely damaged during excyclone Oswald in January, resulting in its closure for the past four months. State Member for Beaudesert, Mr Jon Krause, said the anticipated completion date was subject to weather conditions and any issues arising during construction work. The road is a vital link between Tamborine Mountain and Canungra and its closure has caused considerable disruption and inconvenience for businesses, workers, Army personnel and school students. “I understand the importance of the road to the residents of Canungra and Tamborine Mountain and immediately following its closure I ensured Main
Roads got on with the job of fixing it as quickly as possible,” said Mr Krause. “I was on site with Main Roads South Coast Region Director, Paul Noonan, and contractor CMC last week. After completion of geological testing and investigation over the past months, design work for the road reconstruction has been completed, and it was fantastic to see work under way. “The re-constructed road will have the same configuration as before, but will be built on rock base. Previously the road was built on black soil. The design aims to minimize the risk of the road slipping in the future. An enormous amount of soil and rock will be moved as part of the reconstruction,” said Mr Krause who thanked Main Roads for their work and local residents for their patience.

Mobile vet is ready to make house calls
OR vet Steve Denley, house calls are not only for emergencies, they are an everyday part of his Balance Veterinary Care practice. Dr Denley settled at Tamborine three years Dr Steve Denley ago and after 15 years as a vet believes home visits are by far the best treatment option, not only for his animal patients but also their owners. His specialty is small animals, including rats and mice, birds and reptiles. Dr Denley will provide preventative health checks and vaccinations and parasite control for well animals, all in the familiar surroundings of their everyday environment, as well as euthanasia at home to allow a much loved pet to pass away peacefully. “House calls make good sense to me,” he said. “Many old pets are too arthritic to get in and out of a car and some elderly people are too frail to get their dogs into a vehicle. “Cats can be a nightmare to get to a clinic.” A sick or injured cat is already under enough stress without having to confront a waiting room full of dogs, so a visit from the vet in familiar surroundings where the animal is most comfortable helps reduce the trauma for pets and their owners. “It’s all about what is best for the pets and their family,” said Dr Denley. As the name suggests, his Balance Veterinary Care practice offers a balance of conventional veterinary medicine, holistic, natural care and Chinese medicine, where appropriate. In some cases, conventional medicine may be the best approach, while in others Chinese medicine may be more appropriate and in some instances a combination of both Eastern and Western could provide the best results. Dr Denley, a qualified veterinary acupuncturist, said knowledge of both Western and Chinese veterinary medicine ensured animals were provided with the best possible treatment plan for their needs. “Whether it’s an acupuncture or electroacupuncture treatment, the prescription of Chinese herbs or regular Western veterinary treatments, each pet’s treatment plan is delivered according to their individual needs,” he said. The demand for complementary therapies for animals has increased substantially in recent years, with many pet owners searching for alternative treatments in instances where traditional Western treatment options had been exhausted. “Chinese veterinary medicine has proved particularly beneficial for chronic conditions such as arthritis and digestive disorders, as well as other conditions that Western medicine can only control and not cure,” Dr Denley said. Dr Denley offers discounts for pensioners.

HE largest structures ever created by any species of animal, are not huge human building projects. They are the coral reefs built by generations of millions of tiny coral polyps, and the largest of these reefs is the Great Barrier Reef off the Queensland coast. Corals are animals, which belong to the class Anthozoa. The individual coral polyps are radially symmetrical invertebrates, with soft tubular bodies, which range in size from 3mm to 56mm. They have a central mouth, which both ingests food into the stomach, and expels waste after digestion. The mouth is surrounded by tentacles, which are used to catch prey and for defence. The tentacles contain nematocysts (stinging cells); each nematocyst cell consists of a coiled thread under pressure, with a barbed end and a sac of toxin. A touch will trigger the ejection of the barbed coil, and toxin will be injected to kill or paralyse prey, or to discourage predators. Reef building: Coral polyps extract calcium carbonate from sea water to build a calciferous case around themselves. As they grow they build upon this base, and when they die their case forms the foundation for the next polyp. Communication: Although polyps are individuals they live in a co-ordinated colony, which utilises hormones, electrochemical discharges and light to form a sophisticated web of communication. Reproduction: About 25 per cent of corals are male or female and may live in single sex colonies, but the majority of corals are hermaphrodite (both male and female) Coral can reproduce asexually, in which case a polyp divides buds or fragments to
form another individual. Corals, which sexually reproduce, fall into one of two categories – broadcasters or brooders. The broadcasters release millions of eggs and sperm in a mass spawning. To be successful this must be synchronised between colonies, and it is thought that water temperature, day length and the lunar cycle play a part in this timing process. The eggs and sperm float to the surface, and once fertilisation occurs the fertilised eggs hatch and the larvae drift with plankton until they settle and begin a new colony. Brooders harbour, then release fertilised eggs, which sink and settle rather than float. Zooxanthellae: Some corals have a mutually beneficial relationship with algae. The algae use sunlight to create sugars and oxygen through photosynthesis, and this provides food for the coral polyps and influences their colouration. The corals that rely on this mutualistic relationship require warm (18 to 33°C), clear water above 60m deep. Deep cold sea corals do not rely on Zooxanthellae; they are suspension feeders, which collect food from the strong deep-sea currents. They can be found in water temperatures of 4°C, in complete darkness, at depths in excess of 2000m. The largest deep cold sea coral reef is off the coast of Norway. Corals provide a diverse marine habitat rich in biodiversity. However both warm and cold sea corals are under threat as a result of human activity.

DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION BY TELSTRA CORPORATION LTD FOR A DEVELOPMENT PERMIT FOR A TELECOMMUNICATIONS FACILITY AT 16–24 WITCHES CHASE, NORTH TAMBORINE SCENIC RIM REGIONAL COUNCIL FILE REFERENCE: MC.Bd213/00005
I wish to make a submission against the above development application based on the following grounds and supporting facts and circumstances: The proposed telecommunications tower is of a scale, form and intensity that conflicts with the provisions of the Tamborine Mountain Zone, Rural Character Precinct and the Desired Environmental Outcomes of the Beaudesert Shire Planning Scheme 2007, which specifically seek to protect the landscape character and scenic amenity of Witches Chase and Tamborine Mountain more generally
The proposed tower will compromise the residential amenity of Witches Chase
The Applicant has not demonstrated an overwhelming community and economic need for the proposed tower nor has provided sufficient grounds to justify the significant conflicts with the planning scheme The Applicant has not exhaustively explored alternative options for the location of the proposed tower
The Applicant has not confirmed the maximum height of the proposed tower, which makes it difficult to assess the proposal and its visual impact against the relevant provisions of the planning scheme Other comments:

Tamborine Mtn Police News by Senior Constable Scott Guerin, North Tamborine Police
ECENTLY Police, Fire-Rescue and Ambulance crews attended the scene of a fatal single vehicle traffic crash on Tamborine Mountain Road at Tamborine, where a young lady well known on the Mountain unfortunately lost her life. The staff at this Police station (the majority of whom attended the scene) would like to offer their sincere condolences to her many friends, family and loved ones. At this time the cause of this tragic incident is still under investigation by the Forensic Crash Unit and further information in relation to this crash is not available. I know I go on about road safety almost at every opportunity, but I ask again for motorists please to drive safely, drive to the conditions at the time, at the speed limit, and to do everything you can to limit the risks whilst on the roads. Sadly I concede that even if we do everything possible and correctly, sometimes the outcome can still be not as we had wished. NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH NEWSLETTER Gwenda has asked me to inform readers that the Neighbourhood Watch Newsletter will no longer be hand delivered to individual home letterboxes in the future. If you still want a copy, these can now be picked up at Taste Buddies in Siganto Street, Australia Post and the Council Library, both in Main Street, Tamborine Mountain Medical Practice in North Tamborine and in Eagle Heights, and at the Tamborine Mountain Community Centre in Eagle Heights. Or log on at http://nt2nhw.blogspot.com.au ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGE On June 1 our Police Division was absorbed into the Logan Police Super District. Really, nothing will change for us at North Tamborine – it’s more an administrative change at district police level. We will now be administered and supervised by District Duty Officers from Logan and we can now hear (on our radio channel) the Logan Police crews going
about their business in Beenleigh, Jimboomba and Browns Plains etc. I think it would be fair to say we have in the most part enjoyed our time with the Coomera Police District (which largely) has been absorbed into the Gold Coast Police Super District. From now on, except on rare occasions, we will no longer interact with Coomera, Nerang or Mudgeeraba Police, a little sad the passing of an era. We will still continue to work closely with Canungra, Beaudesert and at times Rathdowney Police and more so the Jimboomba Police. Note the more things change the more they stay the same.
SNAKEY BUSINESS In the last day or so Senior Constable Edwards and I were called out by a concerned lady in relation to a large carpet snake on her property. Being from New Zealand, she said she didn’t like snakes (off course NZ has no snakes) and she was concerned about her young child, playing outside. I totally understand her dislike of serpents. I don’t like snakes either but Brendan does, that’s why he is the snake handler. We captured the snake and were thanked ever so much by the new home owner and the snake has subsequently been released into the State forest. We get all types of calls for assistance in relation to animal related jobs - from dogs on the loose to horses and cattle, and sadly from time to time kangaroos, wallabies, birdlife and koalas having been hit by vehicles. I remember even removing ducklings from the roadway and on one occasion taking a longneck tortoise off the very busy Mundoolun Connection Road at Canungra and placing him back in a nearby creek. I suspect it must sound quite amusing to other police crews working in Nerang, Coomera and on the M1 Freeway that we are dealing with such jobs and on occasion we will hear the occasional “moooo” over the radio net when we inform the communications room we are proceeding to a very important, “Remove cattle from road” job.
Tamborine woman robbed at knifepoint
female service station attendant was threatened at knifepoint during an armed hold-up of a Tamborine service station in the early hours of Thursday morning. Police are investigating the robbery which took place around 4.15am at the service station on the Tamborine-Waterford Road. A blue Ford Falcon sedan was driven to
the service station and a male passenger from the vehicle entered the premises and demanded money from the female attendant. The man obtained an undisclosed amount of money and cigarettes during the hold-up and was seen leaving the service station in the car. Police have asked anyone with information to call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.

Councillor’s Comment Nigel Waistell – DivisioN 1
OPERATING HOURS WASTE TRANSFER STATION The operation of our waste transfer stations across the shire is conducted at a loss. In order to reign in the costs, a review of the operating hours has been conducted. Operating hours at Tamborine Mountain are currently 7am to 5pm, seven days a week. From July 1, 2013 the operating hours will be 9am to 5pm, six days a week, with the site being closed on a Tuesday. Similar changes are occurring across the shire and the potential savings are in the order of $300,000. CONSTITUTIONAL RECOGNITION OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT At the next Australian election, you will be asked to decide on the next Government and, in addition, there will be a referendum on the constitutional recognition of Local Government. Despite some commentary, this is not about the Federal Government taking over local government. The only decision you are being asked to make is to approve the formal recognition of local government in the Constitution so as to confirm the funding relationship between the federal and local governments, allowing the flow of Commonwealth funds to local projects. This will provide councils with financial certainty by protecting direct federal funding for community services and infrastructure. REVIEW OF THE PLANNING SCHEME If you have an interest in being involved in the consultation phases of this review, please contact me. LOCAL HERITAGE REGISTER There is a statutory requirement for Council to establish a register of places of cultural heritage significance in its area. A strategy has now been developed to achieve this. If you have an interest in this area, please call Council on 07 5540 5435. FOOD LICENSEES INVITED TO COMMENT Council is reviewing the current food licence system and is considering the adoption of a risk-based approach to food licensing. It wishes to hear from food licence holders in the Scenic Rim. A link to the online food licensing survey can be found on the Council’s web site at “Have Your Say” DIGITAL TV COMING TO THE MOUNTAIN On May 28, Tamborine Mountain was switched to digital TV. If you are experiencing problems or require information on financial assistance, you can call the Digital Ready Information Line on 1800 20 10 13 or visit the website at www.australia.gov.au/digitalready. I have been advised that everyone has to re-tune on 27 June to receive SBS. I will provide more information on this closer to the date. TAMBORINE MOUNTAIN ROAD Work on the Tamborine Mountain Road between Eagle Heights Road and The Sentinel will commence on Monday 3 June and will take between three and four months. EAT LOCAL WEEK Scenic Rim Eat Local Week is planned for June 23 to30. On June 29, there is a Winter Harvest Festival at the Aratula Community Sports Complex from 12pm to 5pm. Invitations are being sought from businesses to promote local and regional products. Applications close on Monday June 10. Interested businesses should visit the Council’s web site or call Council and ask to speak to the event co-ordinator, Kelli Rabbitt. CONSULTATION The next consultation in the library will be on Monday 10 June, 4pm to 5.30pm. I am also available for one on one meetings at your convenience. My contact details are: Home: 07 5545 0223; Mobile: 0423 931 075; Email: email@example.com; and firstname.lastname@example.org
Councillor’s Comment NaDia o’CaRRoll – DivisioN 2
STATE PLANNING POLICY (SPP) On April 15 the Queensland Government released for consultation an incomplete draft SPP which did not and still does not include a multitude of supporting guidance material which forms part of the SPP. Such an omission would not be acceptable in a commercial or professional context and yet this is the process for public consultation on an instrument which will have significant indirect and direct impacts on planning in Queensland. Public comment closes on June 12. (These are my personal views). KRAs (KEY RESOURCE AREAS) As part of the SPP the State Government has nominated a number of KRAs which are sites of extractive industry across the Scenic Rim. The draft SPP requires that local planning instruments be amended to “identify and protect’ KRAs and components. When considering an application for an extractive industry Council should consider that the Community Plan and community members have made it clear that they want industries that are compatible with tourism, natural values and lifestyle, as well as considering the impact on infrastructure, the environment and other businesses, and whether there is a demonstrated need which is not already being met by other facilities. Since new applications will be decided under a local planning scheme that has State mandated KRA protection imposed upon it, it remains to be seen how much true autonomy and discretion local governments will actually have, to decide KRA applications and impose conditions. Another area of concern is the method used to mandate separation areas around the KRAs. While I totally agree with buffer zones, the method of establishing them is that the surrounding properties in the mandated separation zone are immediately restricted in use. The KRAs are not public facilities. They are commercial operations run to profit the owners. Under this proposal the quarry owners have their processing areas and therefore their profit maximised by using other people’s property as buffer zones. (These are my personal views).

Who Knows Me?
Dear Geoff, You might answer, ‘so what, what do I care, who knows me?’ In fact I wish people would leave me alone! But when you think a bit about it you realise how important it is to be known by someone else...someone you care about. You might well wish your enemies did not know you, then they might not be able to do you wrong so easily. But to have someone who cares about you and who you care about wanting to know who you really are, what makes you tick, what you are thinking...what we might call knowing your soul, this is a basic human need that we all have. Language goes a long way to helping us get to know each other. Actions are also an important part of building the trust needed to be open with another person, to reveal yourself to them. The well known modern atheist Bertrand Russell sought to be known this way by those he loved deeply. Yet when these relationships changed for the worse he felt a deep loneliness that seemed impossible to quench. He also felt that his knowledge of himself was inadequate. He writes ‘selfknowledge is proverbially rare and difficult. Most men, for example, have in their nature meannesses, vanities and envies of which they are quite unconscious..’ No, Russell could not be deeply and fully known by others close to him nor could he be truly known by his own self. His atheism eclipsed the possibility of being known by a personal God.....so no doubt he
12 – TAMBORINE MOUNTAIN NEWS VOL. 1354, 4 JUNE, 2013
dreaded the loneliness that he felt deeply. He felt isolated in the universe. It is an indication of God’s understanding and provision for individual people that he has made us in such a way that we can be known by him and that we can ‘know he knows us’. He conveys the knowledge that he has of us to us by his word and his Spirit. Listen to these incredible words... O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. (Psalm 139:1-4) Not only are we known by God personally, we are known by him completely....’before a word is on my tongue’. He knows my thoughts. Distance doesn’t bother him. Time does not hinder him. He knows me when I am young and when I am old...losing my own self-knowledge as my memory weakens. When we come to know the Father through the Son we need no longer dread the solitude that is otherwise inevitable. Your Brother, Kim Advertisement.

In 2012/13 Scenic Rim Regional Council made a record investment in the region’s infrastructure to ensure it continued to meet the needs of the region well into the future. Much of this spending was directed at delivering “bitumen and bridges” to improve the region’s road network. As part of Council’s commitment to engaging with the Scenic Rim community, last September we detailed the full scope and scale of our planned Capital Works Program. I am pleased to report that despite the heavy blow dealt to this region by ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald and subsequent weather events, Council has made great strides in delivering this unprecedented program of works and improvements. Unfortunately, the impact of a third natural disaster in as many years did take a toll, causing significant damage to local infrastructure and resulting in delays to some planned works. We also find ourselves in a position where infrastructure repaired following the 2011 and 2012 disasters has been redamaged or fresh damage caused. Council will repair this damage as part of its ongoing recovery and restoration program. On behalf of Council, I thank you for your patience as we once again repair and rebuild.

HE Tamborine Mountain Orchestra was raised by a prodigious effort of the Mountain community, led by Raymond Curtis, almost 40 years ago. Over the years, like all community organisations, it has had its ups and downs – mainly ups. With the advent of quality music instruction in the schools, the orchestra transformed from a youth orchestra to a community orchestra for players of all ages. Malcolm Cunningham, as the Director of Music, led the orchestra from strength to strength for more than a decade, arranging more than 60 full orchestral pieces – almost the orchestra’s entire portfolio, weaving his special magic, and leading many performances with his virtuoso flute, clarinet and saxophone playing. Over the years, Malcolm’s concerts have been enjoyed by many loyal followers and his performances for the residents of Roslyn Lodge have always brought great pleasure. On Mal’s retirement earlier this year, Sean Butler took the baton as our new Director of Music, bringing with him an infectious dynamism, innovative ideas and a thoroughly entertaining and instructive conducting persona. John Cummings stepped up as Assistant Director and with these graduate music teachers at the helm, the orchestra (above) has taken off to the extent that we may need seat belts!
This renaissance has brought with it entirely new music and seemingly boundless player enthusiasm. The next concert, at 2.30pm on Sunday June 16, will feature music such as: selections from Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables; Memory from the musical Cats; a Tribute to Louis Armstrong; Night Train; Broadway Tonight; Hey Jude; Don’t Cry for me Argentina from Evita; and a Tribute to Count Basie and others. The orchestra has secured, as guest performer for the program, Margy Rose, whose voice and style are stunningly evocative of a by-gone bohemian era of old Paris. As our guest star, Margy Rose will be singing from her Edith Piaf collection. The program will also include excerpts from Mozart’s Divertimento No.3, KV439b performed by two clarinets – Sanne Kreijkamp-Kaspers and Barry Post and cello – Pauline Keeley. The orchestra’s Dixieland jazz group (aka ‘The Soggy Bottom Six’), will be playing St. James Infirmary, Indiana and Bill Bailey. Please come with us on our journey of new musical adventures at 2.30pm in St. George’s Church, Dapsang Road. $8 adults, students free. Terry Holland President, TMO number and arrange payment with cash. As with many of our previous productions, How the Other Half Loves, an Alan Ayckbourn comedy, will offer a special opening night price for group bookings: a table of eight will cost $100, plus the booking fee of only 30 cents per ticket which is far less than most other companies. All other nights will be $120 per table of eight; adults $18 and concessions $15. If people have any queries, they are asked to contact the booking office number 5545 2084. Bookings commence on Monday, June 10. Production dates are Fridays and Saturdays July 19, 20, 26, 27; and August 2 and 3; with a Matinee on July 27. Barbara Lassiter

Congratulations Jan, Happy Birthday
A few busy weeks for the ladies. On Friday 10 May we had a very enjoyable luncheon for Jan Ide celebrating her BIG O. Congratulations Jan and we hope you enjoyed our making a fuss!! Tuesday 14: Another “Sport Coffee Morning” that of course means it’s raining AGAIN on Tuesday. Think we have had more coffee mornings this year than golf. All the same the company is great. Sunday the 19, eight of the ladies travelled to Coolum for the annual Country Week. We all had a wonderful week – even if it was social. Kay Hamilton and Claire Attree acquitted themselves very well – winners of the nett event Div 1 Foursomes. Helen Teys, a pin shot. The following 2 days, not a star amongst us. We played Mt. Coolum and Noosa Tewantin. The courses were great – pity they greased the greens. Monday 27 May, Sir Bruce Small Trophy played at Arundel Hills Golf Course. Won by Arundel. Tuesday 28 May – Open Day, and guess what! Raining.
With a field of 50 we were looking forward to a great day to show of our Course – in wonderful condition. Not being able to see 100 yards in front and pouring rain the game was called off after 9 holes. The Pumpkin soup helped to heal all. A terrific lunch, cooked by a great chef. Sweets supplied by the ladies, as always received many praises. In spite of the rain, all the ladies enjoyed themselves and it was great to show off our Course. Many thanks to all who worked so hard in presenting the event (you know who you are). Winners for the 4BBB event – 9 holes Annie Hay and Mandy Brown Tamborine Mtn, count back from Eleanor Santer and Janny Jennings Arundel Hills. 2rd Runners up: Katherine Lim TM and Jill McGhie, Lakelands.

Bright weather for TM Landcare celebrations
he weather was kind for Landcare’s big celebration on the weekend of May 25 and 26. The monster bookshop sale was a great success, resulting in sales of $680 for the day. Thanks to the many volunteers who worked all day to achieve this wonderful result and the Mountain residents who snapped up the bargains. On Sunday the Tamborine Mountain Tours trolley bus transported a full bus load of members and visitors to several of Landcare’s diverse regeneration sites. Regeneration Coordinator, Judy Roland, led the group through the three newest sites at Contour Road and then through Ohia Court which was started in 2005 and is now an impressive forest of native palms and other natives, while Mike Russell, another long-term Landcare stalwart, led them through the Youngman Family Park site. Regeneration was first begun in 2003, and after surviving frost and difficult soil conditions, the plantings are now an impressive forest, a haven for birds and frogs. The last site was John Dickson
Conservation Park, first planted by John Dickson and the TM Field Naturalists’ Club in 1984 and extended and maintained from 2000 to the present by a TM Landcare team coordinated by Elizabeth Russell. The park is now a mature forest with good ground cover and lots of natural regeneration. The visitors walked through the park on the newly constructed track soon to be named “The John Aagaard Walking Track”. Back at Geissmann Oval the group was addressed by president Cornelia Meesters, who introduced first president Don Lynch, formerly Land Manager of the Land Warfare Centre, former Project Officer Doug White, National Parks ranger Wil Buch, and former councillor Vanessa Bull. Don said: “TM Landcare is an exceptional example of outstanding volunteers supported by local community and cooperative local government”. A delicious barbecue lunch was then enjoyed by all and accompanied by discussion of many past memorable experiences. Elizabeth Russell

Green Tree Snake – Dendrelaphis punctulata, garden, Eagle Heights
HREE things fix the filming of this snake firmly in my memory. The first was the date; as if on cue, the 3rd day of Spring. The second was its home; a brick barbecue in the middle of the lawn at the rear of the house. The third was that the barbecue had been lit not long before I filmed the snake. The footage includes ashes wafted by the breeze. I first saw the snake at the foot of the front steps, whence it made its way to the barbecue, as far as possible under cover of shrubbery. The species occurs in northern and eastern Australia and in PNG.

KILLER BLUE RINGS Whilst walking this morning in the Forest Park area I came across this dead juvenile male Satin Bowerbird. As we all know, these birds love to collect blue objects in order to decorate their bowers, however as you can see these blue bands from the top of milk containers are a death trap. What happens is that as he tries to pick it up, it flips over his head, followed by what must be a long drawn out, painful and unnecessary death. Most people cut the bands and place them in the yellow bins, but I’m worried that well meaning people could put them out for the Bowerbirds without realizing the problems. This has been reported in the press before, so please, look at the close up, and cut your blue bands; it only takes a few seconds. Finally, if you know the location of a bower, inspect it for rings and any other items you consider could be hazardous. Patricia Stockwell DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION FOR TELCO FACILITY WITCHES CHASE As many readers will know, Telstra is applying to Scenic Rim Regional Council (SRRC) for a development permit to build a 35m telecommunications tower at 16-24 Witches Chase, North Tamborine. Many local residents oppose the proposed development, as it is of a scale, form and intensity that conflicts with existing planning provisions, which were specifically designed to protect the landscape character and scenic amenity of this unique area. The applicant has not demonstrated an overwhelming community and economic need for the proposed tower, nor has it provided sufficient grounds to justify the significant conflicts with the planning
SILENCE ON KEY RESOURCE AREAS More than 4000 respondents had their say on the Scenic Rim Regional Council Community Plan, resulting in a strong message to Council to look after our natural environment and our rural lifestyle. The community gave its elected representatives clear direction and now have every right to expect them to do everything in their power to follow that direction. Indeed, the Local Government Act gives Councillors, including the Mayor, a primary responsibility to ensure the local government “achieves its corporate and community plans”. (s12(3)(a)(ii)) Local Government Act 2009. Why then has there been no notification, no meetings, no press releases from

scheme. Furthermore, the applicant has not exhaustively explored alternative options for the location of the proposed tower. Anyone wishing to oppose the development application is invited to use the one page pro forma on page 8 of this edition of Tamborine Mountain News. Submissions must be received by SRRC by close of business on June 17. They can be posted, or submitted by hand at the SRRC Customer Service Desk in the Library building on Main Street, North Tamborine. Anyone wishing to support the proposed development is invited to encourage Telstra to find a more appropriate location for the proposed facility, i.e. a location that does not conflict with existing planning provisions.

Council informing the community of the large area in the Scenic Rim that State Government has nominated for approval as a key resource area (KRA) for resource extraction. Quarrying is about as far removed from looking after our natural environment and rural lifestyle as you can get. The State Planning Policy containing the KRA was released for public comment on 14 April 2013 and I find it difficult to believe that their plans for the Scenic Rim were not discussed with someone in Council, staff or councillor, prior to the release of the document. Six quarries in total have been highlighted by the State for the region – five rock and one sand. Three of those are within 12 kilometres of Beaudesert, of next page
from previous page which two will make the newly expanded Cryna Quarry look like a baby. So why was it that the Quarry Action Group, in conjunction with local media, broke the news last week (22 May) and not Council or our State MP? Councillors who are saying this is a State matter are quite correct. But in the next breath to try to justify their inaction by
CLIMATE CHANGE, YES Ill-informed polemics regarding ‘climate change lie’ evidence ample closemindedness on the Mt, wrapped in rather diaphanous veneers of objectivity. Its both sad and a little odd, though perhaps intrinsic to human nature, that while we rationally seek expert advice, we irrationally deny it when uncomfortable or confronting, a cognitive dissonance. We respect our scientists, till they tell us something ‘inconvenient’. This fuels pontificating armchair experts, who berate experts and the evil IPCC for campaigns of ‘misinformation’ (motives somewhat blurry) that must be debunked, and critique our tentative steps towards positive action. The planet is warming, and this hasn't plateaued. Instrument data from meteorological and Antarctic stations, and NASA satellite measures collectively reveal warming since the late 1800s, which is accelerating. Proxy measures over longer periods, including tree ring and ice core analyses, further support warming (particularly recently). NASA and the National Climatic Data Centre showed 2005 and 2010 were equal as the planet's warmest years since instrumental measures commenced in the 19th century, with the 10 years from 2001-2010 among the 11 hottest recorded since NCDC measures in 1880. Limited data from the 1800s to now shows global glaciers progressively retreating, more rapidly in the last 2 decades. CO2, essential to Earth’s life, is a pollutant when in excess. Atmospheric CO2 reached 400ppm for the first time at the recording station at Mauna Loa in May this
saying it has nothing to do with them is an abrogation of their responsibility to the community. Not challenging the proposed KRA on the grounds of the community’s stated wishes in the Community Plan may even be in breach of their legislative responsibilities. Astrid Kennedy Scenic Rim Rate Payers Assoc. scenicrimratepayersassoc.org.au
year. Human activity is agreed as a key contributor – currently around 30 billion tonnes CO2 per year. Putting volcanic emissions into perspective, volcanoes currently release only 0.1-0.3 billion tonnes of CO2 annually, less than 1% of human output! Atmospheric CO2 and global temperature estimates through the Phanerozoic era are not evidence against CO2 impact. Space is limited, so best check the scientific literature – try Royer in Nature (Vole 446, 29 March 2007) for actual analysis of these estimates, and assessment of what the findings mean regarding sensitivity of climate to CO2. These CO2 and temperature estimates SUPPORT close coupling between CO2 and climate. At the same time humans are also dimming the atmosphere, particularly in recent decades, which will negatively impact climate and water. Scientific papers worth perusal include several in Nature (Nature 439: 835, 2006; Nature 458: 1014, 2009; Nature Geoscience 1, 221, 2008) on the impacts of these changes to global climate and freshwater availability. Reasoned discussion, not knee-jerk scepticism is called for. As is a cautious yet forward-looking approach to an enormous problem – economic and social discomfort now is a small price for a healthier more habitable planet later. We will make errors in stumbling forward, but stumble forward we must. Or we can remain mired in unhealthy scepticism, mischievous questioning, and awkward discomfort, to the point of inaction when action is most needed. John P. Headrick
