Powerful New Ways to Save with Solar

“The Best Investment You Can Make in 2018 is More Solar Power for Your Home”

How to Get the Most from Your Solar Investment in 2018 Switch Power Companies Solar Power is the best investment you can make in 2018. In this special feature we will show you how you can maximise savings on your power bill with strategic new ways that make the most of new technologies and changing network conditions.

There are huge differences in the pricing of Energy Retailers today. You want to get the most for selling your solar, but you don’t want to pay more for everything else! Some retailers set a high price so they can then give you a “discount” and many people believe the highest percentage discount is what you are looking for. It is confusing to try and compare offers and most people do not have time to wade through this mine field. At 888 Solar Tek we compare all the offers and negotiate even better deals for you.

Cash in on Solar Incentives

Power Prices Going Up Again

Predictions from industry experts have power prices going up by another 50% in the next two years. Reliance on aging coal generators and a lack of certainty for investors in new energy generation is creating a price spiral in the National Energy Market. Expect another 15-25% increase in July this year and more in 2019. Solar Power can minimise the amount you pay for electricity now and protect you from ongoing price rises. Some of our clients are now getting credits from their electricity supplier instead of huge bills, by following our advice and strategies. The higher that electricity prices go, the more your solar energy is worth, not only to offset charges, but also to export to the grid for profit. Find out how easy it is for you to do the same.

Match the Solar Energy to Your Power Use

Everyone is different and how you use energy needs careful consideration before just slapping a cheap package deal on your roof. Solar panels last decades, so you want to make sure your investment is sized and placed to erase your carbon footprints as much as possible. Is it better to use solar for your hot water or use off peak from the grid? is air conditioning more efficient with panels facing East or West? We ask the right questions to get you an efficiency that gives extra value to your solar investment every day.

The Federal Government is still offering Small technology Certificates (STC’s) that greatly reduce the upfront cost of new solar panels. Every year you get less STC’s, so it is better act now while the benefit is Sell Your Power for Profit higher.to888 Solar Tek make it easy to The solar feed in tariff is now 12-15c claim your benefit by doing all the per kWh, which means you can sell excess paperwork and trading them on your power to the grid to cover your night time behalf, giving you an up front discount energy use and daily supply charge.

The rules produce and sell enough power, the change all the time and you need the electricity company will owe you money! right equipment to get money back As prices go up you will get more and from adding solar to your home. more for the excess electricity you sell.

Get Around Network Rules

It is disappointing to find out that the network won’t let you export an unlimited amount of solar power to the grid. However, there are many ways to benefit from producing more power and to ensure you are exporting the maximum most of the time. Our design consultants look at your total energy picture to find new tricks that you did not know about before.

If You Use Less Than 10 kWh per Day...

Install 5-8 kW of Solar Panels to Eliminate your power bill

With Feed in tariffs at 12-16c you can now sell power back to the grid as part of a strategy to minimise and eliminate power charges completely. Production from 2.5 kW of solar - about 10 panels - will offset the dreaded electricity supply charge when all the generated power is exported. You now get half as much for the power you sell as it costs you to buy from the grid. If you export enough, the rest of your power charges can be eliminated. This strategy is ideal for retirees or small households.

If You Use 10-25 kWh per Day...

Install 5-8 kW of Solar Panels and Batteries if Export is Limited

Panel Level Optimization

Every solar panel on a string affects every other panel, so one panel in shade can bring down the performance of a whole system. Tigo have now released special electronic optimizers, so shade will no longer hold back the flow of power. Tigo optimizers also allow more flexibility for fitting panels on difficult roofs, and work with any inverter. If your roof has uneven shading, then Tigo optimizers can increase output by up to 30%. They can also be retrofitted to old panels that are shade affected, fixing any performance lag and boosting your solar power production.

Long Term Warranties

Our Solar panels have a 25 year production warranty, no moving parts and only require occasional cleaning. They just work and keep on working for decades of reliable power production. We choose the best brands to give you the most value and reliability in solar technology today.

Slash Your Hot Water Bill with a Sanden Eco Plus System

If Essential Energy will let you export 5 kWh or more to the grid, then stacking your The Sanden Eco Plus® Hot Water Heat roof with as many solar panels as possible will work well for you. If export is limited, consider storing extra power in a battery bank for night time use. A combination of solar Pump System use up to 80% less for export, self use maximised during the day and battery storage is a great strategy to energy than conventional electric bring your bill closer to zero for medium households with 3-4 people. water heaters.

Kingscliff Triathlon route questioned “Residents also complained about limited access to their favourite shops or shopping sections,” Cr Cooper said. “Retailers in Kingscliff have been put through the wringer over the last three years - the construction of the one-way street - the construction of the bridge - the construction of the holiday park, all have sapped patronage to a critical level.” The concerns are largely stemmed from interruptions to Marine Parade, along the main shopping street, which closes to traffic during the event to allow the race to be safely coordinated. Several comments via social media said businesses were asking for the main shopping streets to remain open during the triathlon. “Running a business in a tourist village is not all beer and skittles,” Cr Cooper said. “These businesses rely heavily on maximising their returns on holidays and weekends. “On weekdays they are struggling to break even.” But Cr Cooper also acknowledged the influx of athletes using accommodation, purchasing food and coffee or shopping in local shops. In response, several Kingscliff businesses are printing a blue sign with the text “2018 Kingscliff Tri supporter” in response to the concerns.

engagement for this event than any other, but were disappointed to hear there have been shortcomings. “The views of the shops need to be funnelled through the business chamber or directly to us, otherwise we will never know. Mr Crawley emphasised that thousands of dollars were spent on traffic management to limit the number of competitors using carparking at Kingscliff Shopping Village, as well as limiting impacts to Marine Parade based on resident’s feedback. The Weekly spoke with Kingscliff & District Chamber of Commerce president Mark Humphries, who acknowledged the issue was a sensitive one, but also emphasised the need to retain the event. “We do not want to lose the Kingscliff Tri, it has had a great reputation in Kingscliff, South East Queensland and the Australian sports community and while there are some impacts that need to be addressed, we should also be talking about the positive outcomes the event brings each year and working to enhance these to every one’s benefit,” he said. Cr Cooper said in a social media post earlier this month that he welcomed the event to remain but said disruptions to local businesses “needed to be avoided”.

MANY BUSINESSES are actively promoting their support for the Kingscliff Triathlon on Sunday, March 18, as discussions continue around a reset to the event’s purpose, operations, impacts and returns to businesses in the community. Tweed Shire Councillor Ron Cooper and a number of Kingscliff residents were among the first to call for a rethink of the annual route of the Kingy Tri, operated by NX Sports whose NSW office and store yard and registered office is based in Chinderah. It should be noted that both Cr Cooper and many Kingscliff locals support the Kingscliff Tri, as do many of the large employers in Kingscliff, who recognise the event’s contribution to the community and the economy. However, both Cr Cooper and NX Sports Race Director Mike Crawley acknowledge that some businesses do experience a drop in their trading revenue during the event and all efforts to minimise this need to be considered after March. The Weekly spoke with Mr Crawley, who recently joined Cr Cooper to visit several concerned businesses in Kingscliff. “Having met with several businesses impacted by the running of the Kingscliff Tri, I understand their concerns better and we will make every effort to limit this impact when planning future events, and this may require some broad thinking on which days are racing, what times, what roads and the order of the program,” Mr Crawley said. “We felt our efforts were effective in limiting the impact to those businesses, and we spend a large amount more on

DEVASTATING NEWS that 24-year-old Maria Diaz Flores passed away at Gold Coast University Hospital (GCUH) on Monday, March 11, following a single vehicle accident has left many Tweed residents deeply saddened for her family.

Emergency services attended the scene and used the jaws of life to free Maria from the wreckage before the Westpac Rescue Life Saver Helicopter transported her to GCUH. “About 8.30am today (Monday, March 12), police were advised that the

Land clearing laws appalling

Most devastating and disturbing the NSW government on Friday night signed off the requirements with the concurrence of the Environment Minister following the ruling of the court just hours prior the NSW land-clearing codes were invalid - so the remake Land Clearing Laws are in effect again. Rather than go back to the drawing board and heed the scientific advice, the concerns of many farmers and the communities across NSW the government has instead treated our unique environmental heritage and the functions of our ecosystems with contempt – all to serve the big agribusiness corps, such as the big corps who have thieved the water from the Murray Darling Basin. The government’s own assessment revealed the new code will lead to a spike in clearing of up to 45 per cent and expose threatened wildlife habitat to destruction, including 99 per cent of identified koala habitat on private land. Many good farmers objected to the new Land Clearing Laws understanding the importance of vegetation to sustain their farms in the management of erosion, salinity, water resources, insect control, shade etc and embrace their obligations for the protection of our unique wildlife and ecosystems for future generations. Very sadly the government ignored the window of opportunity for sustainable outcomes and has again signed off on the fast tracking of the extinction of our very treasured and endangered national icon – the koala, along with a number of other threatened species and ecosystems and the erosion of sustainability of our land and water resources. These laws are simply a reward to the big agri-business corps and the very few farmers who unlawfully operate their business with no regard for this or future generations. Many farmers are leading the way with innovative management practice to

I find it inconceivable that anyone could resent a minute or less of their precious time by slowing down for a few hundred meters during three hours a day for a school zone. These regulations were made to protect children from being injured or killed because some people were too busy with their selfish agenda to slow down. It’s a blanket rule (no personal decision required) for all schools. Would Ian Jeffreys (TVW 1/3/18) rather taxpayers dollars be spent to audit each school so some aren’t inconvenienced. I’m sure bureaucrats don’t spend their days wondering what rules they can make to irritate citizens, set them up for speeding tickets or create opportunities for ‘religious’ schools to earn brownie points. No one likes all the rules but, hey, we live in a democracy and it’s not too much to ask anyone to give up a minute of their life to enable a child to have one. Karen Gail, Crystal Creek

Sick of rail arguments The continuing bleating in this publication and others over the future of the Murwillumbah to Casino rail line is both frustrating and pointless. The line closed 14 years ago because it was uneconomic. Successive Labor and Coalition governments have dismissed the vote-per-dollar value of any reinstatement, ergo, it will not happen. The only hope the bring-back-the-train mob has is for a government of independents and if that ever happens, rail travel will have long been replaced by teleporting. If only Scotty could beam the constant complainers into a parallel universe. Jeremy Cornford, Kingscliff

Rail and trail possible Tim Shanasy’s letter to the Tweed Weekly 8/3/2018 claims the Murwillumbah train line was only ever designed to accommodate a single line which includes steep cuttings, bridges, tunnels and extensive drainage. If that is correct then a rail trail should be built in the rail corridor not in place of the exiting rail line.

Is the existing line the safest place to build a 2.5 metre wide two way traffic path intended to accommodate walkers, young mums jogging along with their babies in prams, possibly small children riding bicycles or scooters and the elderly with their electric buggies. Lets not forget the push bikes and hire bikes, how many will end up in the river and trees like Sydney and Melbourne with their hire bikes problems. It is going to be crowded and dangerous with predictions of up to 100,000 riders per year. Fun for every one has been claimed continually over many years by the bike riding fraternity, excluding the mountain bike riders, like the train they are not considered in the bike trail plan. Tim Shanasy suggests Lori Scinto and friends walk along the railway line and see for themselves it is not suitable for both trains and a rail trail. I doubt if many rail trail enthusiast are aware the train corridor is 31.5 metres wide and that is more than enough for a rail line and a bike trail. If guidelines set out in the Casino to Murwillumbah rail trail study are followed then the outcome may be unpalatable to the rail trail enthusiasts because it is possible for trains and a bike track inside the rail corridor for instance. Causeways may be used instead of bridges to lower building costs. Consideration of the fire and safety requirements will become a critical aspect of allowing uncontrolled access within the tunnels. The study says the track doesn’t have to stay within the 31.5 metre corridor if there are bridges or other structures that are not easily or economically viable to rebuild. It is now up to the Tweed Shire Council to write a tender which address the above sections from the Department of Premier and Cabinet Casino to Murwillumbah Rail Trail Study Final Report. Philip O’Neill Kielvale

Let’s have both

I am both a bike and horse riding enthusiast and appreciate the need for interesting and safe trails to ride on. I love what the Dutch are doing with purpose built cycle roads and see a potential for the Tweed Valley Rail Trail to create something equally awesome with a custom built path in the railway corridor. The money is on the table, quite a lot of it in fact. Trouble is, the blinkers are on the trail promoters who fail to appreciate the needs of the thousands of non-bicycle riding citizens, elderly, handicapped, students, job-seekers, shoppers, tourist business operators etc who

have been calling for decent regional light railway services since the day the trains were stopped. Given hope by National Party politicians calling for returning trains before elections, but overtly seeking to privatise yet another public asset, once in government. So my concern remains that the Trail promoters single use concept of removing the rails will permanently obstruct the wishes of 73 per cent of the community who want trains returned. Why not use all that money wisely and create a unique world class trail alongside the trains ? Trains will bring thousands more visitors and tourists than a cycle trail ever could. Millions of tourists actively seek scenic train rides and the Murwillumbah to Casino line is one of the most scenic in Australia, a stones throw from an international airport at the Gold Coast. So how about the trail promoters lift their game, protect the corridor by putting trains back in it and support the ‘other’ 73 per cent of the community and build a brand new world class riding trail alongside , it’s a win-win John Morrison, Tweed

Lack of vision on rail

Regarding the Rail Trail; remember the fight we had over the location of our new Art Gallery? Eventually, good sense prevailed. It seems few elected officials display much statesmanship or vision for the future, being mainly concerned with winning the next election. So it falls to us locals to really push to get the best long-term results for our community, for us and our offspring, over some issues. Look what the originally much maligned Opera House did for Australia and Sydney and what our magnificent Art Gallery has done for Tweed tourism, garnering worldwide awards and visitors. So, to tear up the rail line seems to be totally lacking in vision for this region’s future. Besides, the train tracks could provide vehicular access for maintenance, medical problems and other issues to an adjacent trail and negate the use of a rescue chopper. And does every public utility have to make a profit? People do pay rates. A rail connection to Brisbane is another issue. Phil Latz, Stokers Siding

Homes not school

I am a Seabreeze Pottsville resident and I am taking this opportunity to express mine and others concerns for the proposed high school/school to be built within the estate. I can’t comprehend why they are considering building a school within

the housing development and the damage this will do within the estate. This is absolute madness on behalf of the council if they decide to place a school and not more homes. I feel sick to know what the impact will be from a noise and house value prospect. The location proposed will impact surrounding homes and the people who live in them. Like so many people I have spoken to in the estate, it is unanimous that they don’t want a school built literally in their backyard. The council needs to listen and take into account the people who live the Seabreeze estate now and not the “up in the air” notion of building a school over a decade ago to sell land which has never made sense and no one wants. The additional homes will do wonders for surrounding businesses also and will keep this estate residential which it should and must remain. Cassandra Stevenson, Pottsville

We could take more refugees

Peter Dutton repeatedly promotes the misconception that ‘per capita’ we are more than pulling our weight concerning our refugee intake. Well, it all depends on what measurement you use. The fairest measure is wealth not ‘per capita’, the rubbery figure Mr Dutton confuses us with. Based on our wealth and the ability to care for refugees we accept, we rate a lowly 70th in the world. There are many poorer countries that do our heavy lifting for us. Mr Dutton’s selective use of ‘per capita’ is a term used only when it suits him politically. For example, it is okay for measuring our refugee intake but not so for say pollution emissions. ‘Per capita’ we are the largest polluters in the world. Liberals avoid a ‘per capita’ measurement of pollution though because it suits their climate denial stance but eagerly accept a ‘per capita’ measure for our refugee intake.

Christian school wants Seabreeze site CWA Hall break-in at Murwillumbah

PACIFIC HILLS Christian School has been identified as the private school that has shown an interest in building a high school at Seabreeze Estate in Pottsville. As previously reported in The Weekly, the Seabreeze developer Newland Developers has submitted plans to Tweed Shire Council calling for the land to be subdivided into a 72-lot subdivision with 69 residential lots. In an email to Mayor Katie Milne, Pacific Group Business Manager Chris Baldry said the school was hoping to build an independent school within the Seabreeze Estate, which would cater from kindergarten to year 12. “The Executive Principal and I are very happy for the community to know that the Pacific Group of schools is hoping to secure the Pottsville site and planning for a boutique K-12 independent Christian School,” Mr Baldry said. “We will keep trying with the site owner, really appreciate your interest and support for a school in the area and hope we have the chance to deliver on the community expectations.” Mr Baldry also spoke to The Weekly and said the school has submitted another offer to the developer and are awaiting a decision from the board. “We have based our offer on an independent evaluation of the site and submitted an offer to the Metricon Board, who will make a decision,” he said. Pacific Hills Christian School is based in Dural, Sydney and has around 1360 students and 150 staff. Councillor Chris Cherry, who has long campaigned for a high school in the Seabreeze estate told The Weekly she believed the future Dunloe Park development would be a good site for

The Seabreeze Estate, where stage 18 is the earmarked school site

a primary school, however, not a high school. “I do think it would be very good to have a new primary school in Dunloe Park to provide for the needs of those 4000-7000 residents,” she said. “I just think that the high school should be in the more centrally located Seabreeze site.” Meanwhile, two Seabreeze residents have wrote to The Weekly to emphasise that not everyone wants a school in the estate, stating they want “more homes not a school”. “I am writing on behalf of so many residents of the Seabreeze estate in Pottsville on how we do not want this land secured for a high school,” Sean Adams wrote. “It shocks so many how they would want to build a high school in the middle of a residential estate. The effect that this would have on the estate is massive in regards to increased traffic and noise, devaluing surrounding homes and will increase vandalism and youth crime.” Mr Adams said he was not opposed to a high school in Pottsville, but believed the Seabreeze estate was not the right location.

“Please understand that I’m not opposing a high school in Pottsville,”he said. “I’m opposing the location that has been flagged in a residential estate. This land needs to be used to build more homes for all ages to enjoy the lifestyle that Pottsville offers.” Another Seabreeze resident, Cassandra Stevenson, said she also believes the estate should remain as housing only. “This is absolute madness on behalf of the council if they decide to place a school and not more homes,” she said. “The location proposed will impact surrounding homes and the people who live in them, surely there is a better location in or near Pottsville that can cater for a development that won’t shadow the estate.” Residents can have their say on the Development Application by visiting http://www.tweed.nsw.gov.au/ AdvertisedDAs or see Tweed Link on page 10.

A SECOND break-in at the Country Women’s Association (CWA) Hall on Queen Street in Murwillumbah over the weekend, has prompted an appeal for witnesses after it was the second time the premises has been broken into in less than two months. CWA members noticed the damage downstairs from the main hall on Monday, March 12, where it appears a wooden door has been smashed apart and plasterboard, which could contain asbestos, has also been broken apart in the lower section of the hall. A spokesperson for the hall said it was the second time the hall has been damaged downstairs, and the club is now moving to report the latest incident to police. “This happened only a few months ago,” The CWA Hall spokesperson said. “The last time there wasn’t as much damage, but rubbish and needles were left lying everywhere.” The damage was previously cleaned up by members, who decided not to report it to police in the first instance. “We thought this could’ve been an isolated incident, but now that it’s happened a second time in less than two months, we’ve decided to report it to police,” the CWA Hall spokesperson said. “The damage in this latest incident could cost the CWA Hall quite a bit as they have broken plaster panels, which could contain asbestos.” Members are also considering stepping up video and security surveillance. “It does get very dark down the side stairwell,” the spokespersons said. “But following this latest incident, I think we need to step up our security measures around the hall.” However, as the association is run by volunteers and through donations, it could take time and money away from local activities in order to invest in security. “We just hope they stop targeting the downstairs area, there’s nothing down there and although I believe they might be using the power point, the damage is extensive,” the spokesperson said. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Tweed Police on (07) 5506 9499 or phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Jail threatens for super non-compliance

New penalties are on the horizon for employers who fail to pay the correct amount of superannuation to employees of all types, under new legislation being considered by the federal government .. The move comes after the tax office estimated that workers missed out on $2 ..85 billion in superannuation payments in the 2014-15 financial year – a shortfall of 5 ..2 per cent on what should have been paid .. The Superannuation Guarantee Cross-Agency Working Group examined the figures and recommended tougher penalties for non-compliance, as well as other measures to ensure employers made the proper payments .. Tony Mitchell, a business lawyer with Stacks Law Firm, said employers should get their superannuation files in order so that they don’t fall victim to the treasury crackdown .. “The super laws are complex, and employers, particularly those in small business, can risk falling foul of the constantly changing regulations without intending to short-change their employees,” Mr Mitchell said .. “It can help to get an independent lawyer experienced in business law to do a legal audit of a business to ensure compliance with these changing laws .. An audit can also find possible exemptions or appeals that may exist in particular circumstances .. “After all, the penalty for non-compliance under this proposed legislation from treasury could see an employer go to jail for up to 12 months, receive a fine of up to $7,928 ..50, or both ..” Mr Mitchell said confusion can arise when employees salary sacrifice part of their pay. Some employers have used this lower gross salary as the basis for calculating the super guarantee payments .. “The proposed legislation requires super funds to report each payment made to them by employers, and when they match this against the salary, it could catch out employers who have made a wrong calculation ..” The draft legislation will extend Single Touch Payroll to all employers from 1 July 2019 .. This is designed to improve superannuation reporting and boost the tax office’s ability to get real time information on an employer’s compliance. And from 1 July 2018, superannuation funds will commence “event-based” reporting to the ATO of payments they receive for employees from employers .. “Employees should also know their rights concerning superannuation, and if they feel they haven’t received the proper amount, should seek expert legal advice on what they can do ..” Employees, whether permanent, casual or part-time, are entitled to receive 9 ..5 per cent of their gross pay in superannuation – providing they are over 18 and earn more than $450 a month before tax ..

Cap on Tweed poker machines PARTS OF the Tweed Shire including Tweed Heads, Tweed Heads West and Murwillumbah will be banned from increasing poker machine numbers under new legislation introduced to NSW Parliament last week, as the latest figures reveal the shire has more than 2,000 machines, taking just under $100 million a year. The legislation will put a cap on gaming machine numbers in certain areas that are considered to be “high risk” of gambling related harm. Tweed Heads, Tweed Heads West and Murwillumbah have been classified as high risk by Liquor & Gaming NSW whilst Tweed Heads South, Banora Point and the entire Tweed Coast is classified as medium risk. The remainder of Tweed Valley is considered low risk. Minister for Racing Paul Toole said the changes are in response to concerns from the community around gaming machine numbers. “Local community caps are an appropriate response to concerns that some areas have too many gaming machines,” Mr Toole said. “These areas will be capped at their current number, ensuring no additional machines can move into these areas. “A number of councils and community groups suggested caps and the NSW Government agrees this is the right thing to do in higher-risk areas.” The reforms will also see more community consultation and Responsible Gambling Fund contributions will be forced to be spent locally. A controversial part of the legislation is a scheme where gaming machines owned by small hotels and clubs in regional areas can be leased rather than sold. NSW Greens Member of the Legislative Council and gambling harm spokesperson Justin Field said the leasing scheme would significantly slow the reduction in NSW poker machine numbers. Current legislation means a percentage of poker machines are forfeited when transferred from one venue to another and according to analysis by the Greens has reduced the number of poker machines from more than 100,000 in 2010 to just over 95,000 in 2017.

“The special treatment for pubs and clubs means that instead of poker machines being retired from the system, venues will now be allowed certain types of transfers, leasing arrangements and easier mergers that will protect poker machine numbers and profits at the expense of those impacted by poker machines,” Mr Field said. “It’s also highly likely that the new transfer arrangements will see machines move from areas where they are less profitable to some of the state’s gambling harm hotspots, exacerbating community impact while bolstering club and pub profits. “I’m calling on Minister Toole to abandon these flawed laws and implement genuine harm minimisation approaches such as $1 maximum bets, restricting addictive features of machines and rapidly reducing the number of machines in NSW.” In response to Mr Field’s comments, Minister Toole said the claims were wrong and the number of gaming machines would not rise. “The claims ignore the Government’s proposal to cap the number of gaming machines in high-risk areas at existing levels for the first time,” Mr Toole said. “About 20 per cent of NSW will become a ‘no go’ zone for additional machines, ensuring the number of machines in these high-risk areas can only ever fall.” Mr Toole said under the government’s proposed legislation the leasing scheme would operate for only 11 per cent of all machines and would be an alternative pathway for small pubs and clubs to reduce their gaming machine numbers or go “pokie-free”. The leases would need to be approved by the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority, and will be subject to a revised Local Impact Assessment (LIA) scheme including the cap on gaming machine numbers in high-risk areas. “Additional machines will not be able to move into high-risk areas, whether they are traded or leased,” Mr Toole said. He said forfeiture remained a key plank of the government’s approach to harm minimisation, however it is one of a number of initiatives. “A reinvigorated LIA scheme, tightlydefined eligibility for leasing and a new Responsible Gambling Fund levy

At the same time the poker machine legislation was released, Liquor & Gaming NSW announced they will now publish six-monthly gaming machine reports on their website. The Weekly had previously reported on poker machine data the NSW Greens had purchased from Liquor & Gaming NSW that had not been available for public viewing. The figures showed Tweed gaming machines were fed $1.1 billion in 2017, making a net profit of $97 million over the year. The latest figures reveal Tweed gaming machines made a net profit of just under $50 million in the second half of 2017 where Tweed clubs made $44 million between July 1 and December 31 and hotels made $5.6 million between June 1 and November 30. These figures do not include turnover, but net profit (profits after tax), which Liquor & Gaming NSW says is the best indicator of how much money is being lost on gambling. The data reveals out of the $44 million made by clubs, $8.7 million is paid in tax, whilst hotels are paying $1.45 million in tax out of their $5.6 million net profit. Out of 15 Tweed hotels, there are 209 poker machines, whilst 16 Tweed clubs own 1,800 machines. The Tweed Shire is currently entitled to have 2275 gaming machines and the most recent figures indicate there are currently 2056 in hotels and clubs. In 2016 Tweed clubs and hotels donated $448,000 to Tweed community groups through the ClubGRANTS program.

In brief ... Reprieve for suppliers during April

The upcoming Commonwealth Games will most likely make deliveries more difficult for some businesses in the Tweed. In recognition of the likely traffic delays, Council has decided to take no compliance action against suppliers receiving deliveries of goods outside of their normal delivery hours for the period 1 April to 30 April 2018. This decision was made at the 1 March Council meeting.

Have a chat with your neighbour

As mentioned last week, Council is getting behind Neighbour Day on Sunday 25 March and would love for you to get involved too. Tweed residents can take part by spending time with one or more neighbours, with suggestions ranging from cups of tea to parties in front yards, or at a local park. Planning your event has been made easy with everything you need at the Neighbour Day website www.neighbourday.org including posters, invitations, connection cards, selfie signs and a how to guide. The first 20 Tweed residents to register their Neighbour Day activity on Council’s Facebook event and complete the quick survey (or by calling (02) 6670 2567) will receive $50 vouchers to spend at local businesses to use to cover costs of your activity.

From left: Jaime Coetzee and Jazmine Cook were elected Deputy Chair and Chair of the Youth Council at its first meeting at Council’s Tweed Heads Administration Office.

Homelessness priority youth concern The first meeting of the 2018 Tweed Shire Youth Council has been held with members outlining their concerns and goals for the year ahead. The Youth Council, now in its third year, is an initiative of the Tweed Shire Youth Strategy and Action Plan 2013–2017. It is made up of representatives from public and private high schools in Tweed Shire and meets every school term to express views on youth matters, while also providing opportunities for the development of communication, confidence and leadership skills. Jazmine Cook, of Tweed River High School, was elected as Chair at the meeting and said she was looking forward to the experience. “I decided to join the Youth Council to gain more knowledge and experience of how a council works and also to hopefully make a difference in our community,” Jazmine said. “I feel the group we have this year is very strong and I think we may be able to make a difference in youth homelessness and mental illness in the youth community.” Jaime Coetzee, of Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School, was elected Deputy Chair and also spoke about her desire to have a positive impact. “I am hoping to assist with the prevalent issue of homelessness in the Tweed,” Jaime said. “I am also excited to understand how the Tweed Shire Council operates and makes their decisions.” Council General Manager Troy Green was on hand to welcome

the group and asked each member directly what youth-oriented services they would like to see established or improved in the local area. Council Families and Youth Development Officer Sylvia Roylance said the group’s answers, which ranged from transport to mental health and homeless services, showed them to be engaged members of the community. “On first impression they are all very insightful as to what is going on in their community and definitely full of energy and confidence,” Ms Roylance said. “The Youth Council is a great way to expose young people to a formal meeting environment and gives a lot of insight into how local government works, potentially opening up career pathways they may not have been aware of. “As we enter the third year of the program it is great to see the support these young people are receiving from their schools which are now starting to see the impact of the program as an extension of the leadership roles they encourage students to take on.” The 2018 Tweed Shire Youth Council is made up of: Jazmine Cook – Chair, Corey Cox and Matthew Lewis (Tweed River High School), Jaime Coetzee – Deputy Chair (Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School), Nava Bergman, Ethan Graham and Jasper Tiffen (Murwillumbah High School), Chloe Palin and Zoe Nethery (St Joseph’s College), Hannah Carmody and Jessica Maloney (Wollumbin High School) and Jack Lee and Joshua Carpenter (Banora Point High School).

Koalas need our help – become a Koala Watcher Friends of the Koala is calling for Tweed locals to become Koala Watchers and is holding a free workshop to show them how to do it. The workshop will be held in the Canvas and Kettle Room at the Murwillumbah Civic and Cultural Centre Murwillumbah on Saturday 17 March from 9.30am to 12.30pm. Koala Care Coordinator Susannah Keogh, who will be delivering the workshop, said Koala Watchers played an important role. “Early reporting of koalas in need of care improves their chances of successful treatment, rehabilitation and release back into their natural habitat,” Ms Keogh said. The workshop will provide information on becoming a koala watcher, including recognising the signs of healthy, sick, injured and distressed koalas. It will also focus on what you can do to help support a healthy koala population in your local community. Council’s Biodiversity Projects and Planning Officer Marama Hopkins said this was a workshop that would give people the skills to make a real difference. “We’re always asking Tweed residents to keep an eye out for koalas and to report them when they see them,” Ms Hopkins said. “Unfortunately, injury and disease is always going to be an issue

for our koalas and it’s sometimes hard to tell, but being able to identify when a koala needs help and getting that help early can mean the difference between life and death for that animal.” To register for the workshop or for more information contact Friends of the Koala on (02) 6621 4664, Maria Matthes on 0467 855 990 or maria@healinghistory.com.au. Refreshments will be provided. Koala Watch is a NSW Environmental Trust Project.

GPS to track Tweed puss in boots Cat owners are invited to participate in a study to find out exactly how far our feline friends wander from home. Tweed Shire Council has partnered with the University of South Australia as part of a nationwide Cat Tracker study, using GPS units to map out exactly where cats roam. Council Project Officer Jude Mason, who is coordinating the Love Cats Love Wildlife project, said the Cat Tracker study would provide valuable information and probably surprise people. “Cat owners want to know more about their cats,” Ms Mason said. “They don’t know where their cats go and it’s a missing bit of information when owners are making decisions about the care of their cats. “Similar studies have shown that even otherwise docile house cats can range over a very wide area and some owners might be in for quite a shock. “Places in the study are limited but you can make a contribution just by completing the cat tracking survey on their website.” More than 600 Tweed residents took the time to complete the recent Love Cats Love Wildlife survey, providing insight into cat activity in our community.

The survey is part of a project being undertaken collaboratively by Tweed Shire Council and the NSW Environmental Trust and the results will help shape this project and future animal welfare education programs for the community. “Key findings of the survey show that there is a general awareness across the community that cats do have a negative impact on wildlife and that by keeping cats at home – either indoors in a safe cat enclosure or in a cat escape-proof yard – wildlife is protected,” Ms Mason said. “Cat safety was high on the list of benefits of cats kept at home and many residents have made their own ‘catios’ or cat patios to keep them safe.” One of those is Tweed resident Jan Lobban who has enclosed her veranda as a cat run for her much loved companions Bruno and Madeleine. “We made the decision after one cat was attacked by a feral cat and bitten by a snake,” Ms Lobban said.

State give the OK to buying flood risk houses

Last chance at MOAC

The State Government has approved new and expanded Voluntary House Purchase (VHP) schemes following the March 2017 flood. The schemes will focus on the worst affected residential areas of South Murwillumbah, Bray Park, Burringbar, Mooball and Crabbes Creek. The main aim of the scheme is to permanently remove at-risk people from high flood hazard areas (areas with high flood depths and velocities) by buying their houses. The properties are then back-zoned for more flood compatible uses, such as parkland or farming. “Voluntary House Purchase was a recommendation of Council’s Floodplain Risk Management Studies completed in 2014 and 2015 as there are no feasible alternatives to protect these areas from flood risk, such as levees or improved evacuation access,” Manager Roads and Stormwater Danny Rose said. “Our studies also considered including other flood-prone villages, such as Condong and Tumbulgum, in a VHP scheme but they were not recommended for the initial schemes.” Prior to the flood, Council had one VHP scheme operating along the Tweed River in parts of River Street, South Murwillumbah, with four houses still eligible for purchase. Properties purchased have been turned into open space for the community. Council is currently reviewing its flood data with the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) to identify and prioritise those people and their homes most at risk in major floods. “We cannot purchase every flood-affected house in the

Time is running out to view ‘Duxford Street Interiors’ at the Margaret Olley Art Centre at Tweed Regional Gallery in Murwillumbah. The exhibition finishes on Sunday 18 March. The interiors of Olley’s Victorian terrace and the adjoining Hat Factory were subject matter for her paintings for over four decades. She allowed a select few artist friends to also work in 48 Duxford Street – Justin O’Brien, Cressida Campbell and Nicholas Harding. This exhibition brings together Duxford Street interiors by each of these artists, alongside Olley’s own. From 21 March until 29 March there will be no exhibition in the Margaret Olley Art Centre – however visitors can still enjoy the extraordinary re-creation of Margaret Olley’s home studio. Meanwhile, ‘A Painter’s House’ opens in the Margaret Olley Art Centre on Friday 30 March and will be on display until 7 October. The Tweed Regional Gallery has invited four contemporary painters to explore objects and things within Olley’s home studio re-creation. Spending time in the Gallery’s Nancy Fairfax Artist in Residence Studio, each artist has responded to the re-creation from the perspective of their own practice. Responses will be exhibited alongside paintings by Margaret Olley. The exhibition also includes loans from the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the University of Queensland Art Museum and private collections, as well as works from the Tweed Regional Gallery collection. To complement this exhibition the Gallery will present an engaging program of activities and events. Keep reading the tweed Link for details or visit http://artgallery.tweed.nsw.gov.au

eligible areas so we will target those houses where we can get the most benefit in terms of improving safety and minimising losses during floods. “We also need to be mindful of an area’s potential, if freed up, to allow for safer flood flows or what other use it could serve in improving our flood management.” The VHP scheme will take many years to roll out. “It is very early days but once we have identified the individual homes we want to buy, we will speak directly with the homeowners to see if they are interested in selling. If they choose not to, we will move to the next house on our priority list.” Under VHP schemes, the price paid for a home (compensation) is determined by an independent valuer with OEH paying two-thirds of the price and Council picking up the remainder. While there is no application process for homeowners, anyone who wishes to express an interest in participating in the VHP scheme can email their property and contact details to tsc@tweed.nsw.gov.au or write to PO Box 816 Murwillumbah NSW 2484. OEH also approved new Voluntary House Raising (VHR) schemes for these same areas, focusing on lower hazard properties where reducing personal losses is the priority. More information will be provided regarding VHR schemes as they develop. Further information on how these schemes work can be found on Council’s website at www.tweed.nsw.gov.au/VHPVHR and OEH’s websites.

“I really want to urge people to check with their super funds about getting a quick release of funds if needed in the event of a death. “Some super funds have them but they don’t tell you when you sign up. “We’re lucky because we live in a country area and everyone knows everyone and has been so supportive, but imagine if this happened to someone in the city without all that support. “I wouldn’t be able to get through without that help and the support of the community.” Friend Kat Goddard, who set up the Gofundme page with Danielle Driver, said that initially Kerrie resisted the idea. “She is really humble and private but she is such a beautiful person,” Ms Goddard said. “We’ve known the family for 15 years and taking care of Ethan took up all Brett and Kerrie’s time. “It’s been a really tough road because Brett was such a massive part of Ethan’s life. “Brett was the only breadwinner so it’s been really hard for them.” Ms Goddard said that the community had all gathered together to support the family. “If something negative happens in your life you really want to be living in Cabarita. “When the chips are down we all gather together and support each other, it’s such a beautiful community.” Kerrie said she didn’t realise how tight-knit the community was. “Everyone has come together to help us in such a beautiful way,” she said. “I wouldn’t want to be anywhere other than Cabarita. “We’ve put down our roots here and even Roundup won’t get us out. This is our home.” Since her husband’s death Ethan has been trying to understand and process all that has happened. “”He’s such a beautiful boy without any malice at all in him,” Kerrie said. “All he knows is that his dad isn’t here anymore and he wants to play with him and cuddle him. “He wanted to go to Mount Warning because it’s the highest place we’ve got and he thought he might be able to climb to heaven to see his dad.

Jo Kennett A GOFUNDME page has been set up to help a Cabarita woman who lost her husband suddenly after he had a heart attack at work on Thursday, February 1. Since Brett Hayes’ death, his wife Kerrie has been unable to access her husband’s superannuation death benefits, leaving her struggling to provide for her nine-year-old son Ethan, who has autism. Ethan was the Hayes’ miracle boy, conceived after years of trying for a child. Then Ethan was diagnosed with autism. “We have always been so protective of Ethan but more so after he was diagnosed,” Kerrie said. “As far as Brett was concerned there was never anything wrong with his son.” With the love and support of his doting parents Ethan thrived until the sudden loss of his father dealt the ultimate blow. “Brett and Ethan were inseparable and it’s been really hard,” Kerrie said. On the day of his death, Brett called Kerrie from work to say he felt unwell. Kerrie raced to Kingscliff with Ethan but by the time she arrived he was unconscious and tragically was unable to be revived. “I would give anything to have shielded Ethan but he was with me and saw the whole thing,” Kerrie said. “Brett had no symptoms but hadn’t been to a doctor for a check-up for years because bringing up Ethan took up all our focus. “We hadn’t done any end-of-life planning because we were loving life and having a family so much and Ethan had started going so well. “Brett has worked all his life and never took a day off but then we couldn’t access his superannuation death benefits - they said it would be six to eight months.” Since Brett’s death his wife has struggled to pay funeral costs and bills and has even contemplated selling the family home. “I was told my husband could be buried as a pauper or we could go to a charitable organisation for help but he’s paid super for years and that just seems so wrong,” she said. “We couldn’t even make funeral plans for days while I tried to fast-track his funds. “It was imperative to Ethan’s understanding and grieving that we had a burial and headstone like the rest of the family but without the funds we had to make different arrangements.

The committee also recently met with State Member for Lismore Thomas George MP and National Party candidate for the seat Austin Curtin, who both expressed their happiness at the festivals return. “We set this meeting to discuss the future plans of the festival and possible funding opportunities,” Ms Mudge said. “Thomas and Austin were excited to hear that the street parade would once again wind its way through the streets of Murwillumbah and were equally thrilled to hear that we would be returning to the Showgrounds for our main day activities.”

Jo Kennett THE FINAL preparations are underway for Tweed Shire businesses to take advantage of the Commonwealth Games as the finishing touches are put on the Volleyball Stadium at Coolangatta Beach, ahead of the opening ceremony on Wednesday, April 4. The Get Set for the Games team ran a workshop at the Kingscliff & District Chamber of Commerce on Monday, February 26, to help local businesses with planning. Property Manager for TCM Rentals Coastal Wendy Hotchkiss, an executive member of the Kingscliff & District Chamber of Commerce, said the main problem for businesses would be getting perishable stock in and out. “There are a lot of smaller companies who get fresh stock like fruit, vegetables and flowers from Brisbane so the team encouraged them to change the time of day they received deliveries,” Ms Hotchkiss said. “The statistics of the number of people attending is amazing and they are trying to discourage unnecessary travel.” Attendance at the workshop was lower than expected but Ms Hotchkiss thinks business owners have probably been making their own arrangements. “If people haven’t been able to make preparations they can still go to the Get Set for the Games website,” she said. Bedzzz Tweed Heads owner Jamie Cramp said some transport companies still seemed disorganised with games preparations. “I don’t think we’re getting as much information as other people further north on the coast,” Mr Cramp said. “My neighbour at Robina runs a transport company and has a lot of information but there are other transport companies in Brisbane that don’t seem to be getting information. “Most of my suppliers are saying that they are just going to wait and see what happens. “I’m not too worried because I’m not dealing with perishables and we don’t need next day deliveries, so we will just put in a big order before the start. “People who distribute stock to restaurants are changing the distribution to night time as semitrailers cannot afford to be stuck in gridlock. “I think it will be fantastic for the Gold Coast and the Tweed because this is what we do - tourism.” Tweed Heads’ Scales Seafood owner Mick Woolway said he was “not too concerned”. “We get products delivered from Brisbane, usually around 6.30am

Tweed rental demand rising DEMAND FOR rentals across the Tweed Shire continues to rise, with the region recording the lowest vacancy rate in the state in January while rents continue to rise. The rental data comes from CoreLogic’s Regional Market Update that was released this week and identifies the Richmond-Tweed region as recording the highest increase in advertised rents, increasing by 7.8 per cent or an average of $35 per week over the 12 months to December 2017. January Vacancy Rate Survey Results published by the Real Estate Institute of NSW (REINSW) identify the Northern Rivers as having the lowest vacancy rate in the state, recorded at only 0.8 per cent. In contrast Sydney’s overall vacancy rate is 2.3 per cent whilst second-placed Newcastle and Murrumbidgee recorded vacancy rates of 1.3 per cent. Vacancy rates published by SQM Research show parts of the Tweed Shire have even lower vacancy rates with Kingscliff, Tweed Heads and Murwillumbah posting vacancy rates of 0.6 per cent, Tweed Heads South/ Banora Point 0.4 per cent and Tweed Heads West 0.5 per cent. These vacancy rates are a significant decrease compared to one year ago, when The Weekly reported the Northern Rivers vacancy rate had reduced from 1.6 per cent to just 1.1 per cent, the lowest in the state at the time. The chance of finding a rental in more southern parts of the Tweed Coast is slightly easier with Pottsville posting a vacancy rate of 3.5 per cent,

Cabarita 2.3 per cent and Casuarina 1.4 per cent. For housing to be considered affordable rent should be less than 30 per cent of income. Based on the 2016 Census figures the average Tweed Shire income is $1064 per week, meaning average rents should be below $320 a week to be considered affordable. The only part of the Tweed Shire which comes close to being affordable is Tweed Heads West, where the average unit rental costs $330 per week. The only other areas where you can find a rental below $400 per week are units in Murwillumbah and Tweed Heads South which cost an average of $350 and $365 per week respectively. The most affordable area for house rentals in the Tweed Shire is in Murwillumbah, at a cost of $420 per week, followed by Tweed Heads South costing $480 per week. To live in a house on the Tweed Coast the most affordable option is Bogangar priced at $560 per week, followed by Pottsville ($578 per week), Kingscliff ($660 per week) and Casuarina ($835 per week). Most areas in the Tweed recorded strong increases in median sales prices for houses, with Bogangar increasing by 20 per cent to $686K, Murwillumbah increasing 17 per cent to $470K and Tweed Heads South also increasing by 17 per cent to $523K. Most other areas increased in value by around 10 per cent, however, Kingscliff homes lost three per cent and Bogangar units lost seven per cent. Overall the Northern Rivers region saw a 6.7 per cent decrease in sales

activity over 12 months to November 2017, or 452 fewer homes sold. CoreLogic’s Principal Research Analyst Cameron Kushner said regional markets had shown strong growth over the past year, but this could change as capital city markets start to cool. “That the regional markets analysed have for the most part seen quite strong increases in values highlighting that demand for housing in these markets continues to grow as capital city markets have started to see values fall,” he said. “With capital city values generally slowing or falling over recent months it is reasonable to expect that this may lead to slower overall growth in regional markets too. Nevertheless, over the coming months we expect values to continue to rise in most regional markets and outperform their capital city counterparts.” SUBURB

Raine & Horne Pottsville Principal number one RAINE & HORNE Pottsville Cabarita Beach principal Jamie Wilmen has been lauded by Raine and Horne Qld General Manager Steve Worrad after being named the company’s number one principal for Northern NSW and Qld. Mr Wilmen was number one salesperson (Principal) for Number of Sales for Queensland and was also number one salesperson (Principal) for Dollar Value for Queensland. Mr Wilmen’s office Raine & Horne Pottsville Cabarita Beach scored fifth in the Top Office Dollar Value category. Mr Worrad said that Mr Wilmen was one of the best in the industry. “His sales figures are fantastic, and he is probably in the top two per cent of sales people in the industry,” Mr Worrad said. “The thing which makes it all the more amazing is that he is doing it out of Pottsville. “It’s not in some expensive suburb in Sydney or Melbourne, it’s a small town on the north coast that most people have never heard of. “Jamie’s office came fifth and that’s against a lot of much bigger city agencies.” Mr Wilmen has also been the second top salesperson in the Australian Raine & Horne awards for the past two years. He bought the Pottsville franchise in August 2017, which he runs with the help of his son Jesse, who works as a sales consultant and hopes to follow in his father’s footsteps. “He brings a family element to the business and I can watch him grow,” Mr Wilmen said. He also said he is Mr Wilmen encourages young people to consider a career in real estate. “It’s a great field to work in because you can work hard and have a really successful career.”

Names needed for flood certificate of appreciation MURWILLUMBAH LOCAL Tan Summerell has developed a thoughtful idea to acknowledge those hardworking community members who helped during and after the devastating Tweed floods in March/ April 2017. Tan said it had been almost one year since ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie and associated flooding swept through our beautiful Tweed Shire and surrounding areas. “People lost family members, their homes and businesses, pets, livestock and the area was reshaped irreversibly,” she said. “Many of us will never forget how incredibly moving it was to witness the number of people who turned up to show their support, cleaning or doing whatever they could, offering assistance, shelter, food, clothing and money. “People, often complete strangers displaying such deep compassion and generosity. “I tried to get something done officially but that didn’t happen, so I designed a certificate of appreciation on behalf of all the members of the community who had been affected, to thank those wonderful people who worked tirelessly and selflessly to help during this difficult time. “There are people who donated days, weeks, months of their lives and some who continue to work to assist those who are still not on their feet. “This is an opportunity to thank and acknowledge those amazing people. “To thank those who risked their lives in flood waters to save other people and animals. “To thank those people who suffered immense personal loss themselves but

Tan Summerell wants to acknowledge those who helped during and after the flood

still managed to house, feed and help other families in need. “To thank people who donated their time, goods, services and money. “To show our appreciation for all those who cooked day and night for weeks and to recognise all the volunteers who ran and supported relief centres and donation points.” Tan gained support from the Print Spot, who donated printing of the certificates and then approached The Weekly, where she developed her idea further with staff who offered her further support with laminating and other costs. Tan said she is endeavouring to seek from the community “names of individuals, services and businesses who assisted with the clean-up and helped in the many various and magnificent ways that people did”. “With the response so far it is obvious that many people want to voice their

appreciation and keep the community spirit alive,” she said. If you would like to thank someone and see them receive a certificate of appreciation on behalf of the Tweed Shire community please contact The Weekly office in Queen Street Murwillumbah on: (02) 6672 4443 with full names or email editor@theweekly. net.au Alternatively, names can be added by scrolling to existing Facebook posts on Murwillumbah Matters, Murwillumbah Buy Swap Sell, Flood Clean Up 2484 and Murwillumbah Noticeboard. Lists will be compiled during the following week and then certificates will be produced. Arrangements for collection are still being organised and notification will be given towards the end of the month.

Students to stand against bullying KINGSCLIFF HIGH School students will be taking a very practical stand against bullying to mark the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence on Friday, March 16. Year 7, 8 and 9 students will mark the day’s theme, “imagine a school free from bullying”, by taking part in workshops and activities with student leaders and staff talking about bullying, cyberbullying, empathy, understanding and how to be an upstander in safe and supportive ways. Kingscliff High Principal Michael Hensley said there will be a strong emphasis on how to become an ‘Upstander’, which he explained was someone who will do something to prevent or call out bullying in a safe way, even if they are not directly involved themselves. “At Kingscliff High School we value the importance of a safe and supportive learning community for all of our students,” Mr Hensley said. “The best way to stop bullying is for all of us to speak up against it, to be an Upstander. “The vast majority of our kids are fantastic and don’t like to see bullying happen. Our message is that if they are not OK with it, get with the strength and be an Upstander. “This Friday is all about empowering them to be an Upstander safely.” Throughout the day students will show their commitment to taking a stand together by literally standing together on the oval for an aerial photo to be displayed on the school’s social media pages, the Bullying No Way! and the Bully Project websites, giving a clear message to the community that Kingscliff High School students are committed to being ‘Upstanders’ against bullying.

Murwillumbah Return and Earn open

OPEN R EASTEN WEEKE D Friday& Saturday

THE TWEED’S latest Return and Earn deposit site for eligible cans and bottles on Tweed Valley Way, South Murwillumbah, opened last week and is currently accepting drop offs between 7am to 10pm. The reverse vending machine allows residents to deposit up to 500 cans and bottles per receipt. TOMRA, who operates the Return and Earn scheme, was previously investigating possible sites throughout the Tweed Valley after requests from residents and The Weekly, due to overcrowding and persistent filling of the two coastal drop points. Tweed now has three drop locations with the first to open at Chinderah BP (Chinderah Bay Drive), the second at Kingscliff Shopping Village and the third now in South Murwillumbah. News of the new South Murwillumbah Return and Earn site has drawn mixed views across the Tweed Shire. “South Australia have had collection points for years - you just take your bottles and cans, they weigh them and give you the money. These places seem so antiquated and time consuming,” Helen Oxley said. “Great waste, why not put a proper depot in where you can take bulk bottles and cans, instead of scanning each barcode on every item. One at a time in the slot, if, you can

Meanwhile, several Tweed residents are calling for a Return and Earn machine at Tweed Heads. “Be nice for Tweed Heads to get one as well,” Vanessa Biggs said. “Yes, Tweed Heads needs one,” Janet Harradine said.

Locals to shave for a cure Proven wealth builders

share their knowledge

Simon Bain and Tanya Booth are preparing to shave for a cure at the Riverview Hotel on Saturday

A WORLD’S Greatest Shave event is set for the Riverview Hotel on Saturday, March 17, from 2.30pm with brave locals and JH Williams employees Simon Bain and Tanya Booth stepping up to Shave for a Cure to raise funds for blood cancer research. Simon’s wife and campaigner for Camp Quality Katie Bain, passed away two years ago after battling blood cancer and Simon has grown his beard ever since. Simon also lost his father recently to cancer and decided to take part in the Shave for a Cure initiative which takes place each year in March. “It was a tough decision to lose the beard, but it’s for such a good cause,” he said. “We’d just love for everyone to come down to the Riverview Hotel on Saturday, make a donation and support this great cause.” Tanya Booth is also shaving for a cure and will go under the clippers on Saturday alongside her team mate Simon. Tanya joins brave local women such as The Sugar Beat owner Jessica Harvey, who braved the shave last year and raised more than $1200.

Chloe Wotherspoon donated 40cm of her hair for a wig

“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” she said. “I’m also going zero on the clippers which is a bit scary, but I’m ready and I know it’s for a great cause. “I just hope everyone can come down to the Riverview on Saturday and please show your support. “Simon and I would also like to thank Tony and the team at The Riverview Hotel for their support and organising entertainment on the day.” The pair have set up a social media (Facebook) page titled “Simon and Tanya’s Hairy Adventures”, which has a link to their World’s Greatest Shave for a Cure page and where residents and businesses can make a donation. Meanwhile, Murwillumbah local Chloe Wotherspoon visited B Spoilt Hair Studio in Murwillumbah to have her long hair cut in order to make a wig for someone living with leukemia. Chloe had 40cm taken off her hair after raising $430 for the Shave for a Cure fundraiser.

SCOTT BARLOW has worked in financial markets his whole life; from Sydney to Tokyo and Hong Kong. In 2005, he and his lovely wife, Renee, decided to make a tree change. “We bought our farm in Uki, started a family and haven’t looked back,” Scott said. While consulting to a Brisbane firm, Scott was introduced to the world of financial planning. “I was aghast. I couldn’t believe how the [financial planning] industry hadn’t moved forward with the times,” he said. “It was mired in the 1980s – still peddling widely discredited methods and techniques. It still hasn’t changed.” With two colleagues, Scott set about developing a whole new way to construct a superannuation investment portfolio based on advanced techniques and new thinking. They ‘pitched’ the idea to a national financial planning firm and Scott later joined them becoming the group’s first Chief Investment Officer. “They were in Coolangatta, which was a huge relief,” he said. “I’d been commuting daily to Brisbane and while Renee had rented a place for me to stay up there I think I only ever stayed one night. I was terrified I’d wake up one day and discover I’d moved to Brisbane instead.” They built an investment fund based on the new techniques and launched it in lateNovember 2007, straight into the teeth of what became known as the Global Financial Crisis. It was a baptism of fire, but the Fund went on to become the top-ranked Fund of more than 10,000 investment funds that year (2008).

“The clients were ecstatic,” he said. “They’d escaped the GFC. For our part, we felt we had ‘proof of concept. “I wanted everyone in the country to be able to invest this way.” In 2016, Scott and his colleagues decided to start their own company, Sovren Guided Wealth, enabling people from all walks of life, to take advantage of Sovren’s new techniques and to ultimately secure their financial future. “Ordinary hard-working people deserve so much better than what they are getting from the average financial planner,” he said. “There’s just too much at stake to not get it right. Our pioneering techniques make a huge difference and that’s something we’re really proud of.” Scott is presenting his insight, investment philosophy and some of those investment planning techniques at a free presentation at the Murwillumbah Golf Club next Tuesday, March 20, at 6.30pm.

Mt Warning Dragons win gold at nationals “We did well at the Qld State Titles in February, getting three bronze medals so we were optimistic,” Mr Cumming Thom told The Weekly. “It was our first attendance at the National Titles since 2014. “We’ve changed our Saturday paddling base to Tumbulgum which saw an increase in new paddlers, some of whom featured in the recent successes. “The over 50s mixed crew fought an epic battle to just be beaten by half a second to collect silver in the 500 metres. “In the 200 metres over 50s mixed race the crew were locked in a mighty struggle, but this time the half second favoured our crew after many months of dedicated training was distilled into 54 seconds of focus and energy with the team taking gold." Seven teams lined up for the Senior B (over 50s) Mixed 1000m race which requires great skill from the sweep as

well as highly coordinated paddling from the crew “After times were tallied at the end of the race the crew were stunned to realise they had finished 30 seconds ahead of the next over 50s crew and beaten all but one of the over 40s crews that were also entered in the same heat,” Mr Cumming Thom said. “Our focus for the coming year is to continue to grow the club’s membership “We need more paddlers, particularly males, but anyone from any age group is welcome. “We want to repeat or better our results from the world championships in 2014 at the World Championships in France. “We’d love to see new members come and join up to get more teams to the Nationals next year and to qualify for France in 2020.” New paddlers are welcome to join the club on Saturdays at Tumbulgum at 8am.

Participants at the end of the 67 kilometre trek

First men's health walk

AN ORGANISATION of men supporting men’s health through sporting adventures had its first trek from Point Danger to the Byron Bay lighthouse on Saturday, March 10. A total of 18 men took part in the 67 kilometre trek for run_ walk_talk, raising over $700 for Beyond Blue. The event was conceived by police officer Sean Swain when he saw friends struggling with life. “As police officers we see a lot of things that normal people don’t,” Mr Swain said. “I had a background in triathlons which I share with a few mates and sport really helped me. “Men have the highest suicide rate in Australia, particularly young men. In my job I’ve seen it directly, I’ve read the notes people left behind. “I wanted to get men out for a run or a walk and be comfortable enough to talk to their mates.” Some of the men left Point Danger at 2am while a second group left at 5am, catching up at Brunswick Heads where they stopped and patched everyone up and two withdrew with injuries. “There was a really strong headwind and running along the beach was really difficult,” Mr Swain said. “The distance was longer than most people had done before so it was a really great job.” The men shared conversations along the way. “Men don’t like talking about problems but when they exercise and push the boundaries they start talking about things they wouldn’t normally talk about and really open up. “We started out complete strangers but by the end of the day we were best mates. “Everyone saw the benefit and we got great feedback so we’re planning to do other things like bike rides in the future.” Anyone wanting to contribute can visit: https://beyondblueindividual.everydayhero.com/au/run-walk-talk

Jo Kennett THE MT WARNING Dragon Boat Club has made a triumphant return to top level competition, winning two gold and one silver medal at the 2018 National Dragon Boat Championships at Lake Kawana on the Sunshine Coast on March 7 - 8. The club won silver in the Senior B (over 50s) mixed 500 metres, gold in the Senior B (over 50s) mixed 1000 metres, and gold in the Senior B mixed 200 metres in the small boat (10 seat) category. Club Publicity Officer Cheryl Forrester said they hoped the win was enough for the club to qualify for the 2020 World Championships in France. “It’s so exciting,” she said. “We’re such a small club compared to some of the big city clubs we compete against.” Ms Forrester, who competed, said the windy and hazardous conditions meant several events had to be cancelled or shortened and different age categories raced together. “They changed the Senior B mixed 2km race to 1km,” she said. “It was really exciting overtaking the other boats. We overtook two and were racing a third. “The water was really choppy, but it felt so fast and good in the boat. “When we found out we had won the gold for our category we were ecstatic. “We had been cruising along at the club for a while and now suddenly we are back at the top.” Consulting coach Dougal Cumming Thom said the club has been rebuilding after a number of retirements following the Club Crew World Championships in Italy in 2014, where the club won gold, silver and bronze.

AFTER ALMOST 12 months Club Active at Tweed Heads is storming ahead with its goal to help people change the way they age, and it’s working wonders. The Weekly recently caught up with Club Active managing director Jonathan Freeman to find out more about the club, that has some exceptional offers on memberships, but also develops ways to live a longer life. Mr Freeman said his vision for Club Active is to give people the opportunity to live life to the fullest. “Generally, with retirement comes travel and grandchildren, we just want to give people the opportunity to live those latter years of life pain and disease free and do everything they’ve ever dreamt of,” he said. “Club Active is a wellness facility for anyone that wants to change the way they age.” Catering to the over 50s, Club Active tailors its workout programs to each client’s needs to ensure optimal health is achieved. Mr Freeman said he had been operating an Exercise Physiology clinic in the Tweed Shire for nearly 10 years, but he really wanted to provide a concept that was very different to what most gyms are. “As an Exercise Physiologist with a lot of experience both academically, at university level, and practically in a clinical and gym setting, I wanted to develop a program that meets the needs of clients to live longer and more healthier lives through their workouts.” Mr Freeman is also an adept businessman and has found a way to offer his services at a exceptional price point, one that many residents including younger clients are embracing.

• Heated salt water & magnesium 2m deep pool. • Low impact, high cardio workout! • Increase fitness, flexibility and mobility • No stress on your joints

IMAGINE IF you could increase your fitness levels in a crystal clear pool while having a whole lot of fun. This is what you get with deep water running and deep aqua combo classes. Elisabeth Mioni from Aqua Workouts Cobaki opened for business in 2013 and has been a qualified Aqua Fitness Instructor for more than 20 years. She also has her Certificate III in Fitness and a lot of experience in all areas of deep water running and shallow aqua and can cater for people with all different abilities. Aqua Workouts can cater for groups of up to 10 people. What is deep water running? “Wearing a buoyancy belt around your waist to stay afloat, you can run in a pool without touching the ground (no impact) – a bit like you are on the moon,” Ms Mioni said. “This means you can run as fast as you like without stress on your joints and can get your heart rate up very quickly. “Then add the use of equipment such as dumbbells, raquets, tennis balls and pool noodles to challenge and strengthen your whole body. “Adding travel to moves is challenging too.” Elisabeth designs her moves to music and keeps the class very active and fun with plenty of variety. “Deep Water Running is such a fabulous class for all ages, as everybody can work to their own capacity as an individual, the benefits are great,” she said.

“These classes increase your range of motion, flexibility and mobility. “The support of the water around you provides resistance and buoyancy for a total body workout to build strength for your muscles and toning. “Aqua Workouts are great for cross training and are a low impact, high cardio workout. “You can more than likely exercise in the water quite comfortably and get a great workout.” Ask Elisabeth about the two for $14 special with classes on Monday to Thursday at 9.30am, 5.15pm and 6.15pm most of the year, as the pool is heated. Take the plunge today and book now on: 0409 596 983.

Flu shot for seniors

TWEED SENIORS are being urged to take advantage of two new groundbreaking flu vaccines, which are being rolled out to more than three million Australians aged 65 years and above and it’s free of charge. These new vaccines will help provide stronger protection for over 65s in NSW. Senator for NSW, Concetta FierravantiWells said the vaccines have been fasttracked to ensure lives are saved and that Australians above the age of 65 years of age receive greater protection. “More than 90 per cent of the 1,100 flu related deaths in 2017 were by people aged over 65 years of age,” Senator FierravantiWells said. “This is the Turnbull Government’s direct response to last year’s horrific flu season and is aimed squarely at saving lives.” “We must continue to do all we can to protect those Australians who are most at risk.” The new vaccines – Fluad® and Fluzone High Dose® – were registered in Australia

Just for Seniors 27

to specifically provide increased protection for people aged 65 years and older. From April 2018, both vaccines will be available through the National Immunisation Program following a recommendation from the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee. Health Minister Greg Hunt said these new vaccines have been specifically made for the elderly, as their immune systems respond less effectively to vaccines. “These new trivalent (three strain) vaccines work in over 65s by generating a strong immune response and are more effective for this age group in protecting against influenza,” Minister Hunt said. “Vaccination saves lives and they are fundamental to our health system. We encourage all Australians aged over six months old to get a flu vaccination this year before the peak season starts in June.” Tweed residents should also check out page 24 and 32 of this week’s edition for local pharmacies offering quadrivalent influenza vaccines, available now for a fee.

The 2018 free flu shot is due to arrive in April across the Tweed Shire

Mr. Property Services’ goal is to provide “a home for every budget”

Mr. Property Services was established in 2008 to offer a professional and dedicated service at reasonable rates to the ‘Buyers’ and ‘Sellers’ of manufactured homes located in Lifestyle Villages and Residential Parks in the Tweed Valley and the southern tip of the Queensland Gold Coast. New Laws commenced on the 1st November 2015 The Law applying to homeowners in Caravan Parks, Residential Parks and Manufactured Home Estates has changed effective from the 1/11/2015. The Residential (Land Lease) Communities Act 2013 has replaced the Residential Parks Act 1998. One of the significant changes that the Residential Land Lease Communities Act 2013 has introduced concerns “Additional Occupants” moving into a home. Legislation now recognises the changes occurring in the make-up of families. New provisions make it easier for additional occupants to move into a home. Carers,

Partners, Spouses now have an automatic right to live with the home owner. The park operator cannot unreasonably refuse consent for other people to move into a home. The Tweed Residential Parks Homeowners Association can offer advice on the Residential Land Lease Community act 2013 by contacting TRPHA President – Tom George, Phone (07) 5513 1267 or Email tweedresparks@hotmail.com for advice and information.

Multicap believe every person deserves to live life to the fullest ADVERTORIAL

MULTICAP WAS established more than 55 years ago by five families for the purpose of caring for their young children with high disability needs. We have matured into an organisation with a broad service offering one clear philosophy - we are here for our customers in all ways, always. Over the past five decades we have grown and evolved with our foundation families. We have diversified and matured along with our customers because we have long realised the importance of being a part of their life’s journey. We now have in-school and postschool opportunities, including employment programs for people eager to jump into the workforce. But we quickly discovered that not all businesses supported all kinds of employment, so we started our own employment services that would. Now we run four businesses that facilitate employment pathways for people with disabilities. The creation of community centres, called Community Hubs, help our customers to live their best possible life – whatever it may be. This could mean a meeting place for going on incredible holidays, meeting like-minded people at social meet-ups, or even taking a day out of everyday life to ride a jetski or enjoy a pottery class. Our incredibly skilled and diverse organisation is made up of a team of more than 900 people with one thing in common – we don’t believe the

journey stops with provision of care but that many things contribute to a fulfilled life. Multicap is incredibly proud to have empowered more than 1,200 people with disability and their families. Our vision is to continue to reflect the needs of the community through the services we offer. The launch of our Tweed Heads Community Hub means greater access for local and neighbouring communities to better tailored personal services including a purposebuilt house in nearby Murwillumbah.

The Community Hub opening marks the first of its kind for both Multicap as an organisation, and for the area. See the new facilities first-hand at our official launch on Friday, March 23 from 10am to 11.45am, Shop 1, 47 Greenway Drive, Tweed Heads South. The morning will feature entertainment, light refreshments and the opportunity to meet the local team. To RSVP simply phone (07) 3340 9079 or email: events@multicap.org. au

Kingscliff sisters make New Generation Awards final

TWO KINGSCLIFF sisters and owners of local business The Beach People made it to the final stage of the Veuve Clicquot New Generation Awards held in Sydney recently. The New Generation Awards are for women under 40 who are entrepreneurial and innovative. Emma Henderson and Victoria Beattie, attended the award lunch on Tuesday, March 3 in Sydney and though the they didn’t take the win, they were very happy to be nominated. “We’re just really proud to be in the final,” Ms Beattie told The Weekly. “We feel very humbled to be included in that community. “Just getting to go down to the lunch in the city with a lot of media and Australian designers is pretty exciting. “We are the only finalists not from Sydney and most of them don’t know where Kingscliff is so we just tell them Byron Bay.” The sisters started the business in 2013 when they came up with the idea of a luxurious round beach towel, which caught on in social media and saw their sales rocket. That simple idea has blossomed into a multi-million dollar business with 600 stores in 30 countries. “The secret to our global growth is our authenticity,” Ms Beattie said. “We didn’t set up to make money or sell something, we just set up to create a product that we believed in. “We just love what we do and it shines through in the products.”

HOW GOOD was it to have the footy back! Golden Point thrillers, last minute victories and the Roosters getting beaten (sorry Kev!). I can’t heckle the Chooks too much as my concerns from last week were highlighted by the Broncos poor performance against the Dragons. I can’t say the Dragons were great, more so the Broncos were way off the mark. It doesn’t get any easier for them with the local derby this weekend, however, if they can’t get their mojo back this weekend the alarm bells will ring early. The Roosters probably sit in the same boat starting the season as premiership favourites and failing to fire against a team tipped to challenge for the spoon. The Knights winning was fantastic for Rugby League. Everyone’s second favourite team and that man Mitchell Pearce saves the day. Great scenes and hopefully they can kick on and I reckon Ponga has justified the hype and has a huge career in front of him. The Storm were clinical and Munster was in a class of his own but will be moved this week for the return of Billy the Kid. Warriors are a great chance of going 2/2 with the Titans having to travel to NZ and although winning on the weekend last minute I think it glossed over some real issues

at the Footy with Quinny but competing wasn’t one of them, definitely one that got away for the Raiders. The Cowboys were iffy but gee they have some side and some pack and this week they trot out Michael Morgan. Parramatta missed an opportunity on the weekend but I thought Penrith were pretty good. Maloney will help Cleary no end and I’m convinced he will wear the sky blue 7 this year and for a very long time. Few local trials around the place this weekend with the Mustangs taking on Ballina at home on Saturday kicking off at 3pm at Stan Sercombe oval. The Ladies League tag kicks off the day and the numbers have been great at training all pre-season for the ‘Twangs’ and I wish them every success in 2018. The u/18s numbers have improved all year and the seniors will combine reserves and A grade for a senior trial. Cudgen will take on Bilambil which will whet the appetite for the locals this year. See you at the Footy, Quinny

Tweed women recognised at Heart of Women Awards passionate about, don’t be afraid of failure, learn as you go and ask the question “how can I help you?”. Tammy Jones awarded Emergency Services Award Another outstanding Tweed woman who picked up the Emergency Services Award was Tammy Jones, who represents the Tweed/Byron Red Cross Emergency Service Volunteers. Tammy said the award was also recognition for all the volunteers, who were instrumental in the Tweed flood. “The most current emergency scenario that I managed was Cyclone Debbie back in March 2017 as the Red Cross Tweed/Byron ESLO (emergency Services Liaison Officer),” she said. “I have had the privilege to work alongside other Emergency Service agencies and help coordinate and assist with the personal support in six evacuation centres in the Tweed Shire and coordinate outreach to more than 29 villages in the Tweed Byron area where we door knocked and carried out welfare checks on more than 1,000 people. “I also train new volunteers in Psychological First Aid who join Red Cross Emergency Services and Rediplan presentations to community groups and organisations and teach them a four step plan to be ready for emergencies. “This also has lead me to start doing training with our local Red Cross Youth Club (ARCTYC) and provide presentations called the Pillowcase project, where I go out to primary schools with some of the youth club members and teach children from Years 3 and 4 how to be prepared in an emergencies and put all their important things into a pillowcase in case they need to leave quickly and teach them colour breathing to relax them. “This technique can be used in any stressful situation not just emergencies. “My passion is to get the message out to the wider community of being prepared. “If we are more in control before the emergency we are more in control afterwards. “I love what I do but it’s great to get recognition for the contributions that I make and all the other Emergency

Service Agencies that helped out and are still continuing to do so.” Dr Anne Carn awarded Health and Disability Award: Doctor Anne Carn was faced with one of the toughest challenges in life when her young son sustained a brain injury that required significant therapeutic intervention. But rather than buckle under the pressure, Dr Carn faced the challenge head on and eventually developed local organisation to help others. “We considered ourselves very fortunate to live in a country where we could access good quality information and therapy,” she said. “As my son’s skills and abilities improved, we decided it was time to give back. “We have founded a local organisation, Autitude Australia where he serves as Vice President.” Autitude fundraises locally and supports children with intellectual and physical disabilities living in Nepal as well as training Nepali locals to work with children with disabilities. “Our model also provides opportunities for locals to gain valuable training and experience which has improved employment outcomes for our volunteers,” she said. “It has not been an easy road by any means but the gifts I have achieved along the way have been priceless. “The award is exciting because it recognises the hard work that our team puts in to achieve some pretty outstanding results for these children and I hope, inspires others to come on board.” Dr Carn’s advice to other local women is to set goals is only part of the process. “Strength based practise and heartfelt connections with others builds community and allows ourselves and others to grow to our fullest potential,” she said. “We can always achieve more when we work together with passion.” The Weekly would like to congratulate our local women for their outstanding contributions to the Tweed Shire and for their 2018 Tweed Gold Coast Heart of Women Awards.

THREE INSPIRATIONAL Tweed Shire women have taken out prestigious awards at the annual Tweed Gold Coast Heart of Women Awards announced at the Currumbin RSL on Saturday, March 10. Noni Yates awarded Entrepreneur of the Year and Big Idea Award First in the awards list for the Tweed Shire was local icon Noni Yates who was named the Entrepreneur of the Year and Big Idea Award recipient. More than 12 months ago, Noni joined the Australian charity Hair Aid, as a volunteer to take part in an offshore program teaching basic hair cutting skills to disadvantaged people in poorer communities enabling them gain an income. “I soon discovered that Hair Aid had also established a program to provide haircuts locally for people who are homeless and less fortunate,” she said. “The Hair Aid Community Cuts vision is to partner with local charities and not-for-profit organisations to offer the extra service of free haircuts to the amazing work already being carried out by their teams.” Noni also wanted to highlight the efforts of Krystal-Lee Drage, who she acknowledged as equally deserving. “An incredible young lady, Krystal-Lee Drage, is totally instrumental in this expansion and I feel the recognition I have received in winning these awards is equally hers,” Noni said. “Hair Aid allow us the freedom to make connections wherever we see the need, our motto is “How can we help you. “Next Tuesday, March 20, we will have our Tweed/ Coolangatta “salon” running for our Agape friends and as a special treat have invited celebrity chef Luke Hines to come along to prepare a special “mystery box” cook off for our street friends.” Noni said she describes herself as a “connector” and the award allows her to have a greater voice in pursuing her passion and creating much needed conversations, awareness and action around homeless and disadvantaged people. “The following quote sums up perfectly how I would encourage other women,” she said. “Be fearless in the pursuit for what sets your soul on fire, get involved in what you’re

HiLux remains on top in February TOYOTA HILUX continued to dominate the new car sales market in February, according to the latest VFACTS data released earlier this month, with some surprise changes in second place. Toyota held the top spot with a 19 per cent market share and a total of 18,281 cars sold in February, up 1,973 cars or 12.1 per cent on last year. Mazda finished in second place, selling 9,913 cars for a 10.3 per cent share, however that was 10 fewer cars than the same period last year, and a 0.8 per cent smaller share of the sales pie. Although the Toyota HiLux (4,426) and Ford Ranger (3,544) remained top sellers for February, the Corolla (3,270) outsold the Mazda 3 (2,935). Hyundai took third place with an 8.3 per cent market share, on the back of 8,001 sales. Surf Toyota sales manager Leon Geldenhuys said the dealer was currently offering free on-road costs across the 2018 Hilux 4x4 range, which represents a saving of up to $5,000. The model range consists of 4x2 and 4x4 models and customers can still get single-cab, extra-cab and double-cab variants as well. There’s a total of 31 different versions of the HiLux available in Australia with the range consisting of the entry-grade WorkMate, mid-range SR and SR+, and highspec SR5 and SR5+ models spread across those different drivetrain and body-style types. Other brands that performed well in February included Mitsubishi (7,142, up 24 per cent), Ford (6,059, up 6.9 per cent), Honda (4,962) up 55.3 per cent, Nissan (4,863, up 9.9 per cent), Holden (4,689, down 18.1 per cent), Kia (4,664, up 11.7 per cent) and Volkswagen (4,620, up 1.1 per cent) rounded out the top 10.

VFACTS revealed that 95,999 cars were sold in the shortest month of the year, compared to 89,025 for the same period last year. Sales for 2018 are sitting on 184,550 – up 10,615 sales or 6.1 per cent on the same time in 2017. SUVs remain the car of choice amongst many Australian households with 41.5 per cent of the market, followed by passenger cars including hatches, sedans, wagons, peoplemovers, coupes and convertibles on 35.9 per cent market share, or 34,490 sales. In spite of the overall market growth, 250 more passenger cars found a home in February last year. Vans and utes accounted for 19.5 per cent of the market with 18,707 sales, 2,195 more than February last year. Surf Toyota is currently offering one of the best deals on the latest HiLux at Minjungbal Drive, Tweed Heads, with plenty of models to choose from.

Tweed Valley Weekly Locals Supporting Locals

Celebrating our First Birthday KINGSCLIFF FARMER’S Markets are celebrating their one-year anniversary with a special family fun day in celebration of Harmony Day on Saturday, March 24. The Kingscliff Farmer’s Markets offers an amazing variety of 24 different stallholders, who cater for a range of palates with some of the finest produce on the coast. The one-year anniversary is big event for the markets that takes place every Saturday morning at the Kingscliff TAFE grounds. The market is organised by Ainslie Lawrie and Gabby McGuren, who wanted to share the exceptional local produce with residents and visitors to the shire, in a market setting. “We first opened on March 11, 2017, which makes the market more than one-year old,” Ainslie said. Ainslie said the market also features local performers including Tim Stokes this Saturday, March 17, as well as some incredible acts for the oneyear anniversary Harmony Day weekend (Saturday, March 24). “We are celebrating our one-year anniversary along with Harmony Day and there will be live cultural dance, fire throwing and singing entertainment all morning, along with free kids face painting and activities,” she said. The performers come from a range of backgrounds including the Swaussy Fire Band, South

Sea Island Performance Group, Japanese Taiko Drums, Hawaiian Dancers and more. The event will run from 7.55am with a Welcome to Country and dance performance and will finish at 11am. “Most of our musicians are either soloists or duos, playing anything from covers as well as their own compilations and all are either local or from the Gold Coast,” Ainslie said. Ainslie said the vision for the market was to provide an avenue in Kingscliff and the Tweed Shire where there’s support for authentic local farmers to sell their seasonal produce. “In addition, we have many other artisan stalls offering homemade products, providing a great variety to the public,” she said. “The Kingscliff Farmers Market provides free live entertainment each week, mostly solo or duo artists whose music creates a great vibe and atmosphere for the patrons. “We have covered seating areas for customers to relax while enjoying some ready to eat food, coffee, juices and smoothies.” There’s also plenty of off-street free parking with the market open early and until 11am every Saturday.

he community involvement for the triathlon continues to be as strong as ever with many local groups providing volunteers and using the event as a major annual fundraiser for their organisation: Tweed South Rotary (18); Pottsville & District Men’s Shed (17); Currumbin Dragon Boaters (10); Tweed Raiders Junior Rugby League Club (14); Casuarina Rugby League (6) and, Murwillumbah Venturer Scouts (10). “The involvement of the local community is ingrained within the Kingscliff Triathlon,” says Race Director Mike Crawley. “The triathlon in Kingscliff is a community sports event that celebrates our wonderful beachside location. One of these long time groups is the Pottsville and District Men’s Shed. ‘We love being part of the Kingy Tri,” says fundraising coordinator Michael Ryan. “The Pottsville and District Men’s Shed have been involved with the event for many years now and our volunteers love getting out, cheering on the athletes, and seeing our local towns bustling with kids and families.” “We make the most of the opportunity to fundraise for our own club and it is great to witness so many new upcoming athletes”.

“For many athletes, it’s their first time on the Tweed Coast and it is a great showcase weekend to bring people back for a holiday at another time,” says event manager Kevin Pready Event organiser survey data reports that 82% of participants are planning to come back for a holiday, with 53% visiting the village at least three times each year. The same survey response data indicates that 17% are introduced to Kingscliff for the first time because of the Triathlon. Based on previous events, the triathlon is expected to bring $1 million into the village with the average overnight visitor reported to spend $220 per day, $1 million into the shire. As an example, one triathlete (name withheld) shared the details of his spending after the triathlon in December: Date

Its a spectacular event that allows us to stay, compete and enjoy the local cafes in such a fantastic location. Apart from being my favourite event on the calendar, we should be supporting local events as drivers of tourism and promoting health and fitness. This is a fantastic event and showcases Kingscliff. I had never stayed in Kingscliff until we went down to see our grandchildren race. We now regularly stay at the caravan park and support local businesses.

Kingscliff, NSW (14 March 2018) he Tweed Coast Holiday Parks Kingscliff Triathlon returns to swim the creek and hit the bitumen for its 17th edition this Sunday. The triathlon is offered in five distances, including two specifically tailored to kids. It also features paratriathletes like Sara Tait (pictured above) who will be racing for Australia at the Commonwealth Games next month. On the cusp of next month’s Commonwealth Games, organisers are excited to see strong participation in the kids and short distance races. “The kids’ races kick off the day and it’s the favourite part of the event for our team,” says Event Manager Kevin Pready. “The last few years we have had great participation from the local kids. To have over 200 kids getting out and active with us on Sunday is fantastic.” Races are set to hit the water at 6.50am.

n the ‘Open’ category, four-time Kingscliff Triathlon champion Courtney Gillfillan is setting her sights on a fifth title after being pipped to the line in December and previous winner Adam Gordon hopes to stay ahead of a number of challengers to win his second title. Of those challengers is local Jack Orr from the Tweed Valley Triathletes Club, who brings with him a strong resume of recent results. Amongst the athletes in the general field will be Rod Marshdale who was the recipient of a double lung transplant and is now completing a full Olympic distance triathlon. “There are a number of storylines to follow on Sunday and we’re expecting a great race for all categories,” says Pready.

AUSTRALIAN COMEDIAN and voice artist Jamie Dunn, along with one of Australia’s most famous puppets Agro, will present an authors talk at Ju Ju’s Cafe on Friday, March 16, from 6pm. The authors talk will focus on the duos new book ‘Agro + Dunn’. From the late 80s, and throughout most of the 90s, Agro, and his alter ego Jamie Dunn, were streamed into every home in the

country. The star of “Agro’s Cartoon Connection” (winner of seven Logie Awards), “The Super Saturday Show”, and “Wombat”, struck a chord with children and adults alike.

Tickets are $5 for adults or $10 for a family.

POETRY IS alive and well across the Tweed Shire after a poetry event at The Regent Cinema’s balcony on Sunday, February 25, was so well attended the group had trouble providing enough seating. Local writer and Byron Writers Festival poetry winner Nola Firth said the event was amazing with Elizabeth Lord providing a wonderful singing performance on the night. “We’ve selected a poem from the open section for The Weekly to print this week,” she said. “At this stage we kept it low key and not too competitive - just chose one on the theme, Love Poems for the Earth, fairly short and good poetry and asked the author Ben Wild from Kingscliff, afterwards if he would like it published. “I think we are beginning to succeed in building a Tweed poetry community - I will keep an ear open for other local poets who also might want to be published and also for other Tweed opportunities for readings/ workshops.” Nola said the next Dangerously Poetic reading will take place on Friday, April 6, at 7pm at St Martins Hall, Mullumbimby. Music and poetry this time will be on the theme: Pillowtalk, poems to warm your heart. More details will be on the website soon. www.dangerouslypoetic.com

Farm ~ Mother Benjamin W Wild ~ The farm is our mother in her birthday suit. Our father drives a tractor across her hips and sows children in her bones. The totem animals run through her veins and the winds press the grasslands to her lips. Every contour of her fertility is a waterhole and beneath her belly is the aquifer of our living allowance. The sun beats her by day and the moon pities her by night and when the rains come she puts on a new dress and shakes the flowers from her daughters. She runs the seasons through her hair and her sons come home to harvest. The grain spills out so much the birds can’t leave the ground. The cattle fatten themselves to death and the mice plague her sleep. Then father burns her summer dress and turns her skin to fallow. Her sons follow the dollar downriver and she has make up sex with the sun. As much as she gives we’ll take and take some more. And as much as she gives she’ll give and give some more. That’s how it is for the farm that is our mother.

THE SQUARE

Chillingham Voices teams up with Momentum Choir POTTSVILLE COMMUNITY Hall will host the Chillingham Voices Community Choir alongside the Brisbane-based Momentum Choir to provide a varied choral music experience for listeners on Sunday, March 18. The concert program includes favourites such as Night and Day, Moonglow, Fields of Gold, Bring him Home, All that Jazz, This Joint is Jumpin’, Hallelujah, Jabberwocky,

Thoroughly Modern Men, Send in the Clowns, The Way You Look Tonight, Cry Me a River and I Heard it Through the Grapevine.

of its Mikado performance late in 2017, and first time that the choir has joined forces with the members of the Momentum Choir. The concert begins at 2.30 pm at Pottsville Community Hall (1 Tweed Coast Road, Pottsville). Tickets: $8 adults, $5 concessional (Children under 12 free) Enquiries and pre-concert tickets: Mary Wiseman 0400715516 or email chillinghamvoices@chillingham.org. au

Film lovers of Murwillumbah, get ready for one of the most provocative films you will have seen in a long while. In a town like ours that prides itself on the abundance of artists, art galleries, art events and exhibitions – and rightly so - The Square will present a challenge as it is, in the words of a prominent film critic, “a suavely merciless take-down of the decadence of the contemporary art world”. The story revolves around Christian, the chief curator of a contemporary art museum in Stockholm and the very epitome of the stylish media professional, obsessed with political correctness but unable to behave decently, a ‘man of the world’ who thinks globally but does not know how to talk to his neighbors. Christian has curated a new installation placed in the plaza of the museum, which is supposed to be a miniature utopia within whose boundaries mutual respect and individual responsibility should be the rule. Additionally, Christian wants to shock audiences with outrageous performance art like the mesmerizing “ape man” piece enacted by a scary provocateur who goes one grunting, swell-baiting step too far. However, at the same time Christian gets completely sucked into a theatrically cunning pickpocket scam which is far more ingenious and effective than any performance art in his museum. A series of other events, including a one-night stand with a journalist and its consequences, are all darkly amusing and bracingly honest in their absurdity. The film, directed by Swedish filmmaker Ruben Ostlund who in his previous film Force Majeure had already shown a great ability to delve into human nature’s weaknesses, won the Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival last year and several other major international awards. There must be a good reason for it: this is ‘high wire’ cinema..!

A stunning sculpture by Annie Long

THIS WEEK’S featured artist is another amazing local sculptor, Annie Long, who has a passion for creating both 2D and 3D works and will take part in the Murwillumbah Art Trail 2018 (MAT18) from May 18 to 27. Annie has been living in Murwillumbah for the past seven years after growing up in Sydney and living in various locations in Australia and overseas - but never for more than five years. “Murwillumbah seems to have settled the nomad in me,” she said. “I’ve been an exhibiting artist since 2002 in both group and solo shows in Australia, Japan and Italy. “I was the instigator and curator of MAT from 2014-2017, so I’m really looking forward to being an artist only in MAT18.” Annie said her first true artistic love is sculpture for its flexible medium. “Ceramic sculpture is the foundation of my art practice, clay is such a flexible medium which allows me to experiment with ideas and forms,” she said. “My main inspirations have been travel and work in international language education which have informed recurrent themes of

the journey (both inner and outer), the nomad and the migrant. “In recent years, exploration into local stories and experiences have become an increasing inspiration for my art practice.” Annie said she hopes to capture the MAT18 theme “Moving On” by creating a new series. “In line with the Moving On theme, my work is inspired by our mercurial river which is one minute so benign and life giving and the next so destructive,” she said. “Creating a new series of ceramic sculptures for the show is helping me process the events of the big flood and it has surprised me the depth and range of emotions that are still sitting under the surface. “I will be part of a pop-up group show entitled ‘Easily Distracted’ with Jenny Sayer and Jennifer Grainger. “All three artists were involved in the post flood clean up so the exhibition will be our expression of the resulting mayhem and joy: clearing, sculpting, scrounging, painting, gluing, chatting, playing, singing, sharing ideas, building friendships and rediscovering life. “We also all like to work in a range of mediums and hence can be easily distracted in the studio.”

Featured Business

Swap a Bottle is a locally family owned & operated Lp Gas supply business which prides itself on great service and competitive pricing. Based at 10 Kite Crescent Murwillumbah, we service all over the local area with distributors also based from the Gold Coast to the Tweed Coast. We offer “no Rental” fees on our cylinders and you can even drop in and pick up a large gas bottle and have your own bbq bottle filled onsite for $20 while you wait! Amy and I were born & raised in Lismore NSW, Moving to the Tweed over 20 years ago. After almost 30 years continued work for a large gas corporation it was time to start our own small gas business while starting our own family. We started small in gas fitting then moved into outdoor heater hire and gas supply to restaurants. With such support & demand we broadened into gas swab cages and then eventually the large 45kg cylinders. It’s been rewarding having our family grow alongside our business. Both of our children enjoy local sports and as such we’ve been proud sponsors of Seagulls Jrl and Bilambil Touch Association for many years.

AIR CONDITIONING

Murwillumbah is a great town to be established in, with many local families and businesses supporting us. We enjoy the same privilege using the quality trades and suppliers the town has to offer. With winter fast approaching we would love the opportunity to help you out with Lp gas needs! Give us a call on 1300 727 013 or send us an email swapabottle@bigpond.com. Check out our website for more info at www.swapabottlegas.com or drop in! Your gas cyclinder must be in test and in good condition.

Caldera Environment Centre spokesperson Barry Firth said that although the mine activity was outside the Tweed Shire and in northern Queensland, the views of local people remain important. “It is true that the projects that are the subject of our survey are located in Queensland, but many of the issues at stake have national and global implications, so we are all are entitled to an opinion,” Mr Firth said. “We intend to compile the results of this survey into a statistical view of opinions among Tweed Shire residents, so that government at all levels will know how the people of

Tweed feel about the expansion of coal mining in Queensland.” People are asked to take part in the survey by Saturday, March 31, 2018.

POLICE BEAT

Police taser man at The Tweed Hospital TWEED POLICE have reported a violent encounter with a man who turned aggressive towards staff at The Tweed Hospital staff on Sunday, March 11. Officers said they were forced to taser a 40-year-old man after they were unable to subdue him with pepper spray. Tweed Police said the man was under police guard at the hospital and was talking to hospital staff before the situation escalated. “The male was talking to staff in an office when he became agitated and commenced to yell at them,” a police statement read. Officers attempted to remove the man from the office but were unable to due to his extremely large build. “He then turned on police who used OC Spray (Oleoresin Capsicum) to try and contain him,” police said. “Again, due to his extremely large build this was unsuccessful.” Police said the man then armed himself with a chair and officers fearing for the safety of all concerned used a taser to subdue the man. “The Taser had immediate effect and the man was handcuffed,” police said. The man was charged with resisting police and intimidation of hospital staff and was expected to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court this month.

Local artist’s welder stolen Highway crash information sought LOCAL METAL sculptor Jack Quilter is calling for community assistance to help track down an alleged thief, who broke into his property and stole his cigwelder recently at 14 Holstens Lane, Murwillumbah. The cigwelder is valued at more than $2,000 and is a crucial part of Jack’s business as a sculptor and artist. Friends of Jack have been asking members of the community to come forward with any information that can “help a local artist friend”, who was a featured artist in MAT18 entertainment section of The Weekly last week (March 8). “Following last year’s flood in the Valley, Jack was overwhelmed with cleaning up and getting back on his feet and had to move to the coast and focus his attention on earning money to rebuild his business and studio in Holstens lane,” an email from Jack’s friend Micro Cosmique reads. “Sadly thieves took advantage of that and removed the equipment at some time in recent weeks, I’m told it would have taken three persons to lift and a small truck.” If anyone has any information please call Jack directly on: 0431 578 669. Jack has also requested the welder be returned and “he will not press charges”, but just wants his equipment back so he can carry on his work. Residents can also contact Tweed Police on (07) 5506 9499 or phone The Weekly on (02) 6672 4443. Example image

Bowls Notes CONDONG’S WOMENS recent Fours Championship final evolved into a grand contest as skip Sue Cook and second Kay Cusack, with relative new comers to the game, Lee-Anne Johnston, and Gill Junor were challenging seasoned campaigners Jenny Glasby (S), Carolyn Caine, Becki Attard and Marian Hinde for top honours. Team Cook opened the card, but a count of 5, followed by two counts of 2 over the next three ends by team Glasby in response, certainly set a hard task for Cook and Co. Nevertheless, team Cook stood their ground and, playing on strongly, heels dug in, the girls clawed their way back into the game to catch up and even the score at 11-11. With renewed confidence and the sweet scent of victory in the

with Judy Tuckey

air, team Cook combined well to score the shots to then take the lead and hold on to claim the title comfortably with the final result being 18-14 up. Way to go, team Cook. For a person who has only been playing lawn bowls for less than five years, it is wonderful to witness the success that comes with that player’s focus and dedication to the sport. Damien Delgado from Cabarita is one such bowler. It had been on his mind for quite some time to play for state and country. With a young family at home, Damien found it would be easier to travel to Brisbane in preference to Sydney in his bid for state recognition, and that he did. Last year Damien won the Queensland Multi Disability (MD) Singles Championship and was runner-up in the State MD Pairs Championship with

Richard Rombouts (Bangalow). Quite a coup for these lads. Damien has now been selected in the Qld team to contest the National Disability Championships to be conducted at Kardinya Bowls Club in Perth, WA May 20-25. However, this trip is entirely self-funded and is quite a strain on all competitors. In support of Damien, Cabarita Beach MBC has opened a fund account for Damien, for those folk who still wish to contribute and may do so. In the meantime, Damien has requested that his personal thanks be passed on to his supporters to date, Jason at RugendykeBashforth, Cabarita Beach MBC and Tweed Heads Bowls Club and their members who, without their help he would not be able to even begin thinking about going to these championships in WA. See you on the greens. Good bowling everyone.

CYCLONE LINDA has come and gone by the time this column gets out, but still some of the swell remains. A few days to wrap up the Quiksilver and Roxy Pros, but with the swell dropping quickly, my guess is that they may even finish up before the weekend. It was wild and rugged Wednesday, and today should be bigger and wilder as the swell peaks today (Thursday), it should even out just a little. Mick Fanning is on fire for his last Quiksilver Pro, and Parko looked on form. I hope results do not make a liar out of me after I write this, but both Mick and Joel look on fire and look like specials in this event. Still plenty to go and Bells Beach around the corner.

It’s something new for surfing, but I think it will be a lot of fun and exciting to see how the world’s best surfers perform in this kind of a format.” To me it looks like a preview for the Olympic committee, even though there is a commissioned wave pool being built in Japan, so far the word is that the venue is going to be Chiba, where more often than not the waves are average.

THE FOLKS at Big River Sailing Club held their Annual Regatta last weekend despite their club house at Harwood on the Clarence River being completely demolished by a freak storm in January. Their stamina knows no bounds with some members working for two solid days to put a roof over what remained of the shower block ready for the record number of entrants wanting to support this great club. Big River Sailing Club has a long history, founded in 1973 with the club house built in 1975 with many additions since. Tweed Valley Sailing Club's (TVSC) Commodore, Bill Fenelon, remembers the club's opening and was second across the line in the race that day in his VJ (Vaucluse Junior) "Tumult" built by well-known boat builder, Grafton local, Malcolm Eggins. Thirty-six years later Bill went on to cofound our own, now thriving, sailing club at Fingal Head in 2011, no doubt inspired by his memories of sailing on the Clarence in his teens. Winners in the regatta got to take home a unique piece of history - literally. The trophies were made from salvaged parts of the old clubhouse. It was a weekend of record breaking stats with more than 80 boats participating

including large numbers of classic two handed Herons and singlehanded Impulses. Most importantly the three-handed Corsairs made history with the resurrection of the Corsair Eastern States Titles bringing the largest number of Corsairs together at one time for many years. As well as six Corsairs from our own Tweed Valley Sailing Club there were also Corsairs from Brisbane and the furthest to travel was Kathy Bourke with crew Kim and Tony traveling 560km north all the way from Budgewoi Sailing Club. The 16-foot Corsair was designed by Alan Paine in the 1960s and has stood the test of time as a versatile sailing dinghy capable of being used for training and also for exciting racing for the three crew teams in up to 30 knot winds. This year 30 members made the trip bringing 13 boats between them and also providing crew for boats from other clubs. Corsairs, Lasers, Herons, Impulses, a Hobie 18 and a Maricat meaning there were TVSC entrants in all divisions. Many TVSC members are completely new to the sport and were happy to see their efforts during the year pay off with TVSC boats taking second and third in the Corsair Eastern States. Congratulations to Gary McCrohon and Kate Yeomans for fighting their way to the middle of the fleet in the mixed monohulls divisions with only one point between them.

Julung partnered with world number one John John Florence for a win in the men’s, while Jalaan teamed with lifelong idol Carissa Moore to take out the women’s event. “We were interviewed before the event and I was asked what the game plan was,” Jalaan told The Weekly “I said probably just to win it and Carissa said, ‘I’ve got a good partner here’. “I hardly saw Carissa in the water as there was such a massive sweep.” “I saw Carissa surf past as I was paddling out and she was ripping. “I was trying to paddle against it but then I got a wave all the way through to Greenmount and did a run around. “She gave me some really good advice like not to get intimidated by other people in the surf and to live my dreams. “There were a few moments there when it felt like a dream. “I was surfing with my favourite surfer, something I have dreamed of doing, and we won.” Jalaan called it the highlight of her life and posted on social media thanking Juraki Surf, Joel Parkinson, Moore, the WSL and her coaches for their support “A little Aboriginal girl from Fingal got to live out a dream!” she said. “Now to train hard, surf hard and maybe one day my dream of being the first women’s Aboriginal Surfer on the

CT and world champ will also come true.” The day began with the biggest and best Welcome to Country ceremony in the history of the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro, put together by event director and Juraki founder Joel Slabb. “This year we incorporated all the Indigenous surfers so Jalaan helped all the girls learn the dances the day before and Julung helped the boys,” Mr Slabb said. “Parko, Mick Fanning, Tom Carroll and everyone loved it.” A highlight of the ceremony was an original song by talented 15-year-old Budgerah Slabb that he wrote about Churakai, the original lifesaver of Coolangatta/Greenmount. Bianca Buitendag also dropped in to the WSL Juraki Teams Challenge. “She took time to hang out with the local Aboriginal elders, showing so much respect,” Juraki founder Mary Slabb said. “Juraki are stoked that she won the trials.” Casuarina surfer Zahli Kelly competed on the day in the Roxy Pro trials, performing well to make it through to the semi-finals. “I had six minutes to go and only needed a 4.6 to move to second place in the semis and make the final but nothing came through and no one caught another wave. “Bianca Buitendag won the finals and she deserved it - she was on the CT last year. “I have a three-year plan I’m working on and I’m still only 14 so I’m happy with how things are going,” Zahli said.

cricket semi-finals

The Pottsville Beach Cricket Club First Grade Team

Jo Kennett TWO TWEED Shire cricket teams have booked themselves a place in the semifinals of the Two Day LJ Hooker League on Saturday, March 17. Cudgen Cricket Club moved into second place after drawing with Casino when the match was washed out on Saturday, March 10, while Pottsville Beach Cricket Club came third to make the final four for the first time in the 12 years they have been in the competition. President of the Pottsville club Oscar van Megchelen said that their game against Marist Brothers had to be called off in the end because of continuing rain. “We were chasing 140 and ended up with 6 for 123 before they called it,” Mr van Megchelen said.

“We were 17 short but with the draw we got the points to make it into third position. “Marist Brothers were knocked into fifth position when Lennox Head beat Ballina. “Next week we play Tintenbar in the semifinals at Ballina and Cudgen plays Lennox Head at the Reg Dalton Oval in Kingscliff.” Pottsville Beach Cricket Club First Grade Captain Jamie Bennett said they had been waiting for a while to make the finals. “For the last few years we always seemed to finish fifth and miss the cut so it felt great to finally make it,” he told The Weekly. “Cudgen has been at the top of the comp and the team to beat for the last four or five years but we are just focussed on getting the win over Tintenbar next week. “We’re feeling confident that we can make it through to the finals.”
