DEB FRECKLINGTON PROMISE DROUGHT-PROOF

WESTERN QUEENSLAND

Deb Frecklington has promised

to build the solution to drought

in western Queensland if she

becomes premier at the end of

the month.

At her campaign launch in Brisbane on

Sunday, Ms Frecklington said the New

Bradfield Scheme would become a "reality"

under an LNP government.

Releasing the first fly-through video of the

proposed irrigation scheme - touted as the

answer to drought in western Queensland -

Ms Frecklington said Bradfield would be the

biggest dam ever built in Australia.

The plan to move water from the raindrenched

north to the drought-declared

west was first touted by Sydney Harbour

Bridge architect John Bradfield in the 1930s.

It was further developed by Sir Leo Hielscher

and Sir Frank Moore and has been talked

about by politicians across the spectrum for

years.

Both Sir Leo, who served as under treasurer to

A new Australian Beer has

launched and $2.00 from

every case will be donated

to the charity ‘GIVIT’ to help

raise much needed funds

and equipment for those

living in drought-affected

communities.

Brewed in Goulburn, Southern NSW by

award-wining Tribe Breweries, ‘Hughie’

is a light, refreshing lager made from

100 per cent Australian-grown hops

and malt and makes a great, easydrinking

thirst-quencher at the end of a

long hot day.

The name ‘Hughie’ derives from the

term “Send it down Hughie” which was

a common Aussie bushman’s cry for

rain at the turn of the 20th century, so

it’s great to see that the money raised

from the sale of Hughie can go towards

helping those living in drought-affected

communities today,” said Billy Ryan,

category manager, craft beer, Dan

Murphy’s.

Since late 2018, GIVIT has spent more

than $600,000 in donated relief funds

to co-ordinate over 140,000 items

purchased in local communities to help

12,000 people across regional NSW

15 Queensland treasurers from both sides of

politics, and Sir Frank, known as "the father of

Queensland tourism", attended the campaign

launch on Sunday.

Ms Frecklington had already committed $20

million to the LNP's modernised version of

the scheme and promised to commission the

CSIRO to begin advanced planning after the

election.

The project, which was expected to cost

about $15 billion over 10 years, would need

heavy federal government investment to get

over the line.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has asked

an expert panel headed by economist

Ros Garnaut to conduct a comprehensive

feasibility review of the inland irrigation

scheme.

At Sunday's scaled-back LNP launch, held

at the Emporium Hotel in South Bank, there

was no sign of former leaders Lawrence

Springborg or Campbell Newman. However,

the conservative party's most senior

Queensland politician, Home Affairs Minister

Peter Dutton, and Brisbane lord mayor Adrian

affected by drought conditions.

GIVIT enables registered charities make

specific requests for items required by

those in need, enabling well-meaning

donors to make a positive difference in

the lives of those they support. GIVIT’s

Drought Relief Program was established

in 2018 to provide vital support to

people toughing it out in relentless

drought conditions. Critical to the

success of GIVIT’s work in this area is

to ’buy local’ when it uses financial

donations to meet community needs.

By supporting businesses in regional

and remote towns in this way, GIVIT

helps shops remain open, people keep

jobs and communities and to hold onto

places to connect with each other. For

further information, visit: givit.org.au.

“Being able to replace a water tank,

mend a fence or purchase a week’s

supply of groceries at the local store can

make a significant positive contribution

to a family dealing with drought,” said

Scott Barrett, GIVIT’s NSW Manager. He

said that last year was Australia’s driest

on record and although some areas

have received rainfall this year, it will

take much more than a few showers to

make any significant difference.

“Drought affects everyone in regional

communities; farmers, their businesses

Schrinner were seated in the front row.

Former premier Rob Borbidge, a member

of the Nationals who became Queensland

premier in 1996 after a by-election in the seat

of Mundingburra, also attended the launch.

Ms Frecklington used most of her address

to run through a list of election promises

the party had already announced, including

a $300 car registration rebate, adding

extra lanes to the Bruce Highway, and

providing at-cost electricity to about 16,000

manufacturing businesses.

She vowed to lead the state out of recession

and create 150,000 jobs in Queensland

after 209,000 people lost work during the

pandemic.

"This election will be a turning point for this

state. The next state government will be

in power for four years, not three," she said.

"And those four years will be critical for our

economic future.

"The Queensland economy was in trouble

long before COVID, now it is in crisis. That is

what this election is about."

Early voting begins across Queensland on

and their families. It affects lives,

live-stock and livelihoods. Whole

communities are impacted: local

businesses dry-up because of reduced

spending and the effects run deep

across generations, economically,

socially and emotionally. Many of these

communities are now dealing with

double-whammy of drought followed

by bush-fires. It doesn’t get any tougher

than that.”

With its strong agricultural roots in wool

production, Hughie’s birth-place and

home in Goulburn, has also seen the

far-reaching impact of drought:

“Drought really affected our local

agricultural community over the last

few years. It’s fantastic to be producing

a drop of great-tasting Goulburn beer

that is 100 per cent Australian and

gives back to the community it serves,”

said Anton Szpitalak, Tribe Breweries,

Goulburn.

Hughie is available from Dan Murphy’s

and BWS RRP: $59 case; $20 6-pack;

$4.00 each. For further information

PARK

UPGRADES

CONTINUE

TO BRANCH

OUT IN

MEANDARRA

Leo Gordon Apex Park in

Meandarra will be revitalised

with new facilities and extensive

landscaping as part of Western

Downs Regional Council’s local

stimulus package to create jobs

and boost the liveability of the

region.

Works to enrich the popular park will include

new picnic shelters, a BBQ shelter, walkways,

new trees, turfing and irrigation throughout

the space.

Council Spokesperson for Recreational Spaces

and Cemeteries Councillor Carolyn Tillman

said once complete, the project would benefit

locals and visitors alike.

“Leo Gordon Park is a very popular spot in

our community and it’s in a prime position

to welcome travellers passing through the

beautiful town of Meandarra,” Cr Tillman said.

“It is important that we continue to maintain

our parks and open spaces right across

the region as they are a valued part of the

community and play a big role in the liveability

for our residents.

The completed project will not only provide

a more modern space for our community to

enjoy but will also entice our visitors to stop

and stay a little longer in our towns.”

The Leo Gordon Apex Park upgrade is included

in Council’s extensive COVID-19 Recovery

Package and will support local business with

the majority of materials and labour sourced

within the Western Downs.

Construction is expected to commence during

the first week of November.

projects visit www.wdrc.qld.gov.au or contact

THE FACEBOOK GROUP THAT CHANGED SMALL BUSINESS FOREVER FOR RURAL AUSTRALIA

The Facebook group that was

created by Jenn Donovan, called

Buy From a Bush Business, turns 1

on October 31 st 2020.

In one year, Jenn has taken her online

community, which supports rural small

businesses from NO members to 285,000

members, and still growing at 100’s a week.

Jenn, a farmer’s wife and marketing thought

leader, who lives in the Riverina of NSW, tells

how she was driving home from a marketing

tour, with her business, of the Riverina back

in October 2019, when she came up with the

idea of a Facebook group to support rural

small business owners.

“Buy From the Bush was a hashtag that

people were starting to know about but

didn’t know how to get involved with. It was

the most common question all week during

my workshop tour of Narrandera, Wagga

Wagga, Moulamein and Hay”, says Jenn.

“I lived and was working in drought country

– years of drought had hit these (and

many other) towns hard. It was coming up

Christmas and no one was looking forward to

it.”

“I know as an ex-retailer, that if farmers don’t

have money, towns don’t have money – so no

one really expected a good Christmas in their

business”.

With the complexities of Instagram for

some business owners, Jenn decided that

a Facebook group, where people could just

post themselves, was the way to go.

So, on Friday October 31 st 2019, after getting

home from a week away, she created Buy

From a Bush Business Facebook Group.

Jenn laughs at how she celebrated with such

gusto at 5,000 members, 10,000 members,

25,000 members – having literally no idea

that it would grow to be, not only the size of a

small city, but an economy all of its own.

“I have no idea how much money has been

traded in the past 12 months, but it must

be in the 100,000’s of thousands – possibly

millions”, says Jenn

“Some people who posted didn’t even have

a business yet, just a hobby, but soon found

themselves with a community of brand new

buyers, from all over the country, wanting

their goods”.

It was a strategic decision by Jenn, from

the beginning, that it wouldn’t just be an

“Australian Made” group.

“As an ex-retailer, I didn’t make my goods,

so I wanted to support those who were like

me. Whether they made the product or not

wasn’t my concern – I just wanted to help.

My theory was that if we didn’t help retailers

like the ones in the main streets of our rural

towns, we’d have ghost towns everywhere –

which would further ruin the rural economy

for many years to come”, says Jenn.

Little did Jenn know what was to come.

Many communities who were already hurting

from drought, faced the devastation of the

summer bushfires, loosing homes, livelihoods

and the so important, for many communities,

the tourism dollar.

To then, to be hit with Covid19 on top of

everything else.

She connected the city with the country.

She created a community that, even if

they couldn’t afford to spend money with

businesses, they helped in other ways

like sharing a post, liking a post or giving

the business owner encouragement or a

compliment – which is, at the heart of it, what

SOCIAL MEDIA is all about.

odd members of Buy From a Bush Business –

HELPING FATHERS

FEEL EMPOWERED

IN WESTERN

QUEENSLAND

A program which aims to support fathers in western

Queensland has taken off with a second group now

formed.

The Fathers with Futures has been running for around a year and stopped

briefly due to COVID-19, before resuming in Term 3.

The group came about after Anglicare Southern Queensland identified a

lack of support services for Dads in the region.

Anglicare Southern Queensland is one of Queensland’s most trusted

social welfare organisations. Established in Brisbane in 1870, it’s a not-forprofit

charity delivering a broad range of community services, including

homelessness support, mental health and family counselling, foster care

and aged care. One in every 30 Queenslanders is empowered by Anglicare

Southern Queensland.

Anglicare Southern Queensland Roma Family Support Worker Daniel Wales

said the rational became that “if there’s very little support services for Dads,

then we should empower Dads to establish their own support networks,”

he said.

“And so the group was born. Being a father myself as well as a Family

Support worker enhanced my ability to facilitate the group and relate to

the issues and struggles of the Dad’s who attend.

Due to its popularity, a second Fathers with Futures group now exists.

The main one meets on the second Sunday of the month and has four

regular Dads and about half a dozen Dads who make it when they can,” he

said.

The other one (Fathers With Futures: Weekday Edition) meets on the second

and fourth Thursday at the month, and currently has three regular Dads.”

When it comes to people having a rough time my main advice is this:

“In July we get an accountant to help us with our tax refund to help us get a

nice fat tax return. When the tractor brakes down we get a diesel mechanic

to help us get our machine back up and running. When the wiring in our

house goes on the fritz we call a sparky to help restore power,” he says.

“Our families and mental health are the same deal. We have the ability to

slog our way through, but there are people in our community who are

trained in these areas who can help us get through it easier and safer. We

ask for help with every other aspect of our lives, let’s ask for help with our

families and mental health too. Even if that person is your best mate, our

folks, or even the dog.”

Daniel is passionate about supporting local Mental Health initiatives in the

Roma area, last week he was involved in the Blue Tree Project run by Lifeline.

The Blue Tree Project is aimed at helping raise awareness of mental health

issues within the community by painting trees in the local community blue.

If you’re a father in Roma and are interested in joining the group, contact us

today on 1300 114 397.

WESTERN DOWNS HIGH SCHOOLS COULD SEE A

$7.3M INVESTMENT IF LABOR WIN ELECTION

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

Three schools on the Western

Downs could see a $7.3 million

investment to help build skills

in students while they’re still at

high school, granted Labor win

the upcoming state election on

October 31.

This would include $2.8M for Chinchilla State

High School and $2M for Tara Shire State

College for engineering annexes to support

training opportunities in the mining, gas and

electrical industries.

Dalby State High would also receive $2.5

million for upgrades to the rural and industrial

manufacturing training facilities.

Speaking from Toowoomba last Wednesday,

Local Government Minister Stirling Hinchliffe

said the investment would ensure schools

were well equipped to help students

maximise future opportunities.

“Only a Queensland Labor Government will

deliver the skills our regions need to prepare

students for jobs in our recovering economy,”

Mr Hinchliffe said.

“This will also support local construction jobs,

helping our tradies and building suppliers at

this crucial time.”

Labor candidate for Toowoomba North

Megan O’Hara Sullivan who was also present

at Toowoomba said she welcome the

investment further afield.

“I’m so proud to hear the investment into

skilling, especially at Tara because I’m Megan

O’Hara from Tara,” she said.

The funding is part of a skills boost to build

and upgrade 26 Queensland school’s facilities

and support the state’s economic recovery,

which Labor says will create 150 jobs.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the Local

Schools Local Jobs initiative would target the

jobs of the future so students can seamlessly

access at-school training for industries

relevant to their regions.

These projects will target the skills needed to

diversify and strengthen regional economies,

which is why it’s an important part of

Queensland’s plan for economic recovery,”

she said.

“We know that we have healthy regional

communities, and we want to see those rural

communities grow into the future.

“So, what we have done is we have looked at

the opportunities that exist in those regions

and the industries that are growing, and we

want to link those skills in with schools.

“It is a gateway to industry and a pathway for

students to get the skills they need for the

industries that are relevant in their regions.

“It means jobs for young people, jobs for

Queenslanders and jobs for Queensland.”

O’Hara on their recent visit to Toowoomba.

A STRIKING STORM DISPLAY TAKES OUT TOP PRIZE

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

A Chinchilla State High School

(CSHS) student has reached the

pinnacle of Visual Arts during

his schooling career by receiving

a prestigious award that is seen

as the equivalent of making a

Queensland team.

On Tuesday morning Seth Gerke was

presented at the school's assembly his 2020

Excellence Award for Visual Art.

Each year, all schools offering senior visual art

in Queensland are invited to submit up to four

student's artworks in the Creative Generative

Excellence Award visual arts program.

Still, the school only needed to submit one.

Seth's artwork was chosen from over 521

submissions from 180 schools, and he was

one of just 37 excellence award winners

throughout the state.

Also, as part of winning the award, the year

12 student's artwork will be displayed at

the Gallery of Modern Arts in Brisbane for

approximately six months in 2021.

This is the first time a student from CSHS has

achieved such a high honour and has left

Seth feeling amazing, and Principal Ian Insley

praising his achievements.

"I didn't think I would get it this year because

there were so many entries but I'm stoked

about it," Seth said.

"For me when we found out that Seth had

won this award, I knew how important it was

and how big of a deal it was," Mr Insley said.

"We have thousands of Year 12 students in

Visual Arts across Queensland and to be one

of 37 to be picked is enormous and is a huge

accomplishment.

"When I saw his clip for me it demonstrated

why visual arts are so important.

"You can see and feel who Seth is and

what he stands for, so I have to say a big

congratulations, and I'm very proud of him

and what he has achieved."

After receiving a regional encouragement

award last year, Seth's teacher Helen Hubbard

submitted another one of his assessment

pieces this year which took out the top prize.

The video titled 'Domination' was made by

collecting, editing, and composing 120,000

photos.

Adobe Lightroom was utilised to sequence

photos at approximately one millisecond

each, to create a running time-lapse.

Seth created the music composition to

accompany and enrich the visuals and overall

narrative of nature which is the subject

matter.

"Nature is the almighty," Seth said.

"I cannot control its unpredictable power; I

can only adapt to the control it has over me.

"Yet, our world tries to replicate and reshape

this irreplaceable environment.

"My core focus is to explore my local

landscapes to communicate my passion and

involvement in natural environments to my

audience.

"My time-based media documents these

landscapes through exploiting my time-lapse

photography, film and sound compositions.

"All 120,000 photos capture the authority,

aesthetic and immense scale of nature.

"I am my true self when in nature and when

making art in landscapes and because of

spiritual connection to nature, I can capture

and represent the almighty language of the

environment that mankind cannot create."

Growing up on land just outside of Chinchilla

and spending his spare time documenting

storms and natural landscapes locally and

across the Western Downs with Gerkies

Storm Chasing, it was here that Seth began

his explorations and found his passion for

nature.

To view Seth's award-winning video, you

Facebook page or visit their website at www.

WESTERN DOWNS KINDERGARTEN’S RATINGS

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

The latest review of childcare

providers has revealed how

Western Downs centres stack

up compared to the rest of the

nation.

Data released by the Australian Children's

Education and Care Quality Authority ranked

every childcare centre in the state based on

their performance to the national quality

standards (NQS).

The centres are assessed on seven criteria

- education, health and safety, physical

environment, staffing, relationships with

children, partnerships with families and

communities and governance and leadership.

The schools are then categorised on whether

they're working towards national quality

standards (NQS), meeting NQS, or exceeding

NQS.

NCC early learners, Busy Bees and the

Christian College Kindergarten in Chinchilla

all received a working towards National

Quality Standard rating.

Chinchilla Community Kindergarten was the

best ranked kindy after they got an exceeding

National Quality Standard rating.

A staff member at the kindergarten said they

were proud of achieving such a high rating.

"Kindy staff pride themselves on planning

and implementation of the best teaching

practises that ensure provided with every

opportunity to develop and grow socially,

emotionally, cognitively and physically," they

said.

"Staff recognise that the physical

environments and the overall atmosphere

of our service supports and enhances

each child's learning, enabling positive

relationships and effective communication.

"The Kindy acknowledges the importance

and value of giving children the power of

influence and determine the direction of

their own learning."

In the rest of the Western Downs, the majority

of the Miles kindergartens proved to be

adequate with the Murilla Family Day Care,

Outside School Hours Care and Kindergarten

were all meeting the National Quality

Standard.

The Murilla Long Day Care Centre was

working towards it.

In Dalby, there were two centres which were

exceeding the National Quality Standard.

They were the Stuart Street Kindergarten

and Preschool and the Dalby Beck Street

Kindergarten.

The Dalby Day Nursery and Preschool,

Goodstart Early Learning Dalby, Kath Dickson

Kindergarten Dalby South, PCYC Dalby

School Age Care, Dalby Christian College

Early Learning Centre and the Milestones

Early Learning Dalby kindies all received a

meeting NQS rating.

Both the Kids Club Dalby and Hall-Thorpe

Sports OSHC Dalby were working towards

NQS.

The C&K Tara Childcare Centre and Jandowae

Kindergarten were the other two centres to

be rated in the region, and both were seen to

be meeting NQS.

COMPETITION BRINGS MUCH NEEDED TRAFFIC FOR LOCAL ACCOMMODATION OWNERS

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

Many major industries have been hit

by the global pandemic including

the accommodation providers whose

properties which are usually bursting at

the seams, filled with caravans and kids

playing, were left empty as restrictions

forced people to stay home.

However, as restrictions start to ease, and tourists

begin to venture out to explore their own backyard,

local accommodation providers rooms are beginning

to fill again.

To help encourage tourists to head west, boost

the economy and assist accommodation business

affected by travel restrictions to recover, a

competition to ‘Win a Long Weekend on the Western

Downs’ this month was held.

Organised by Business Navigator Western Downs and

supported by Shell’s QGC business, the competition

attracted over 6,000 entries from Queenslanders

keen to explore.

From those, 45 lucky entrants won a 3-night stay

at any hotel, motel, caravan park or retreat in the

Western Downs.

The Business Navigator Western Downs team were

impressed with the level of interest shown by

Queenslanders in taking a trip to the region.

Business Coach, Ariane de Rooy said the funding

boost has not only helped accommodation providers

but has also resulted in tourist dollars being spent

with hospitality venues and retailers.

The message is spreading that the Western Downs is

a great place for a long weekend,” she said.

The high response rate to this competition is a

real positive for the Western Downs and should

encourage more Queenslanders to travel and

experience a holiday close to home, boosting jobs

in our region and showcasing the beauty and history

we have to offer.”

The Laurels of Chinchilla proved to be a prevalent

choice for the winners, with owner Shara Fuller

delighted to welcome visitors to our region.

“It’s exciting to see the bookings coming in, and it’s

such a beautiful time of year to visit the Western

Downs,” she said.

“It’s a great destination being only a three-hour drive

from Brisbane.

“We are ready to welcome guests.”

LETTERS, COMMENT & ANNOUNCEMENTS

CALLS FOR

POLITICAL

PARTIES TO

COMMIT

TO CHILD

PROTECTION IN

SCHOOLS

There is growing concerns that

protective behaviour programs

in schools remain “hit and miss”

across Queensland, leaving

vulnerable children exposed,

without the confidence to seek

help.

Act for Kids is calling on the political leaders

contesting the election to commit to

mandating evidence-based programs in

Queensland schools.

Recent research conducted by the University

of the Sunshine Coast confirmed family homes

were the most “risky place” for child sexual

abuse. This research indicated between 70

to 80 per cent of child sexual abuse occurs in

domestic settings.

There were more than 5000 reports of children

being sexually abused by family members in

Australia over the past year. Sadly, this is not

a true representation of the abuse happening

in homes with many cases going unreported.

“To keep Queensland children safe from sexual,

physical and emotional abuse and neglect,

Act for Kids wants an elected Government

to commit to a minimum evidence based

standard for compulsory programs in schools,”

Doctor Katrina Lines, Act for Kids Chief

Executive Officer said.

Act for Kids has developed the only protective

behaviours program in Australia, which

underwent a world-class, multi-site, goldstandard

randomised controlled trial.

“Our Learn to be safe with Emmy and friends

program has now been delivered to more

than 54 thousand children across the country,

giving each child more confidence to identify

when they don’t feel safe,” explained Dr Lines.

Act for Kids believes every child deserves

the opportunity to access such programs,

ensuring they can gain the confidence to seek

help when they need it the most.

SKIN CANCER CAPITAL OF THE

WORLD IN DESPERATE NEED

OF MASS MEDIA PREVENTION

CAMPAIGN

Cancer Council Queensland is calling

on the next state Government to

commit to funding a skin cancer

prevention mass media campaign to

reduce the growing burden of skin

cancer in Queensland.

Melanoma is still the most common form of

cancer in Queensland with over 4,000 people

diagnosed each year. In addition, over 360,000

non-melanoma skin cancers are treated each

year - even though both forms of skin cancer

are almost entirely preventable.

Cancer Council Queensland CEO, Ms Chris

McMillan said this investment will both

protect the health of Queenslanders and

reduce the burden on the health system.

“Skin cancer has a substantial social and

economic impact on Queensland - it costs

the public health system an estimated $175

million annually, and this does not include

the costs associated with loss of productivity

or any social impacts” said Ms McMillan.

“Ensuring there is sufficient and effective

investment in preventative health is essential

now more than ever, to keep Queenslanders

healthy and reduce further strain on the

healthcare system, especially given the

continuing challenges facing our health

system due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Cancer Connect

Talk to someone who’s been there

Last year 1 in 5 Queenslanders did not

received any information on sun protection,

highlighting room for improvement in the

sunshine state. Fortunately, Queenslanders

want to improve their sun safety habits, with

95% of Queenslanders in favour of a mass

media campaign on sun protection and early

detection.

“Skin cancer prevention is also cost-effective

- for every $1 invested in a mass media skin

cancer prevention campaign, a $3.85 return

on investment is achieved,” said Ms McMillan.

“We urge the next Queensland government

to invest $3 million per annum into a mass

media skin cancer prevention campaign. This

initiative will ultimately result in significant

economic benefits and have a positive

impact for Queenslanders and their families.

“Our mission at Cancer Council Queensland is

to reduce burden of cancer, but this cannot be

done alone. We know that preventing cancer

is the most effective way of creating a cancerfree

future, and look forward to working with

the next Queensland government to reduce

the burden of cancer across our community.”

The Queensland state election is due to be

held on 31 October.

If you or a loved one is affected by cancer, our

13 11 20 team is available for support and

information.

CHINCHILLA MAN PUTS HIS BODY

ON THE LINE FOR HIS SISTERS

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

With zero 5km racing experience,

zero 10km racing experience,

zero 15km racing experience,

zero half marathon experience

and zero marathons to his name,

one ex-Chinchilla student is

preparing for the toughest race

of his life but is fuelled by a heartwarming

reason.

Watching both his sisters suffer and

wondering every day how he was fortunate

not to get it, Jeremy Drabsch is taking on the

gruelling 50km ultra-marathon charity race

for his two sisters and to raise awareness for

Epilepsy Queensland.

"I've always wanted to do something for both

of them, and in general for epilepsy, because

I feel many people don't grasp the impact it

can have on people's lives," he said.

"During COVID, I started to take up running

to deal with my COVID related struggles.

"I sort of came out the other end a lot better

off physically and mentally, and I wanted

to do something to challenge myself and

realised it would be the perfect lens to try

and raise money for epilepsy."

Jeremy can still recall the frightening moment

he witnessed his sister have her first seizure.

"She fell backwards and hit her head on the

cement," he said.

"It made this terrible sound, like a watermelon

smashing, it was horrible, and to see Courtney

sitting there having a fit, her body writhing

and shaking uncontrollably.

"Then she comes out of it… the scariest part

is not knowing if they're going to be the same

person or not because it just takes one head

to the cement the wrong way and they're

never the same again, one bad fall and that

person may never be the same, or they might

die.

"I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy to see

someone you care about go through that."

Around 50 million people worldwide and

200,000 Queenslanders have epilepsy, and

it can have detrimental effects on patients

lives.

For Courtney, it meant multiple surgeries

after body parts were injured from her falls

and trouble in the workforce due to the

unpredictable nature of the disease.

A LESSON IN LOGIC ...

A fourth-grade teacher was giving her

pupils a lesson in logic.

“Here is the situation,” she said. “A man is

standing up in a boat in the middle of a

river, fishing. He loses his balance, falls in,

and begins splashing and yelling for help.

His wife hears the commotion, knows he

can’t swim, and runs down to the bank.

Why do you think she ran to the bank?”

A girl raised her hand and asked, “To

withdraw all his money from his savings

account immediately?”

"She has to have reconstructive shoulder

surgery now because she's landed on it so

many times and now it dislocates so easily,

even when she's asleep.

"However, she can't pay for the surgery

because she can't hold a job for things totally

out of her control.," he said.

Jeremy has been training for the event for

the past three weeks and despite working his

way up to a 20km run, he knows that it won't

be easy, and that he is in for a world of hurt.

"A big part of it is that I wanted to do

something to cause me suffering, pain, and

agony, that I'd want to quit from because

that's the point; we are lucky we can stop the

race if it becomes too much, but others don't

have that option," he said.

"For a large part of my life there has been this

guilt that both my sisters got epilepsy and I

somehow managed not to get it, so I think

the suffering the race will bring… it's sort of

like my version of self-inflicted punishment.

"I can use it to frame the challenge that I just inspire my main group of friends, if they

is epilepsy because I can say, 'well this go away with a better understand of epilepsy,

race is going to be very difficult, and I will then that's sort of mission accomplished to

suffer through, but it is relatively short in me."

"It's been a huge inspiration to me."

Courtney said she is appreciative of

Jeremy effort towards her and her

other sister.

“I’m so incredibly grateful to have

a brother who would go to such

extremes to show his support for us

and those going through the same

struggle,” she said.

By participating in the race, Jeremy

wants to help raise awareness for the

disease, make people comprehend it,

and that way hopefully they will do the

same in future.

"The charity I chose, Epilepsy

Queensland, does do research, helps

to support people with epilepsy, but

LAUGHING & SMILING THROUGH BOOK WEEK

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

The Western Downs Libraries

will bring books to life this week

through and share the magic

of reading through interactive

events.

To celebrate National Book Week from

October 17 to October 23, Western Downs

residents are invited to attend a series of

Storytime sessions hosted by the libraries

throughout Book Week for kids of all ages,

as well as partnering with comedian Sean

Murphy to deliver a virtual Book Party!.

Western Downs Regional Council

Spokesperson for Community and Cultural

Development Councillor Kaye Maguire said

this year's Book Week festivities were a fun

and interactive way to get kids involved in

reading.

"Book Week has become a hugely popular

event celebrated right across the country,

which promotes the importance of

developing early literacy skills by making it

fun and exciting for families to engage in," Cr

Maguire said.

body, healthy mind and healthy spirit.

Her key takeaways of ‘doing things

that make you happy’, ‘start planning

tomorrow today’, and ‘don’t get out

of bed until you have thought about

something positive to start the day’,

resonated strongly with the audience.

Margaretta Morgan and Robyn Nixon,

local landholders shared stories of

their lives, showcasing their resilient

personalities which have enabled them

to undertake activities many would have

considered too hard to even attempt,

including moving cattle at very young

ages and managing large working

properties through drought and floods.

Anna Fields, Origin Access Manager,

shared why regional living is attractive

and the importance of having a healthy

work life balance to reduce stress and

manage day-to-day activities. She also

discussed the role of organisations

rural communities and providing

opportunities for growth and wellbeing.

The event was filmed and will be

available via the QRRRWN website.

FAMILY FUN FAIR TO PUT

SMILES BACK ON FACES

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

Out of work for seven months,

wondering where their next

meal is going to come from and

wondering if they will ever be able

to return to what they love doing,

the impacts of the coronavirus

have been extremely devastating

for the showman.

Usually moving around visiting towns,

making friends and producing happiness

all over the country, the pandemic has not

only impacted them financially but for the

showman it has taken it's toll mentally as well.

Then for people of our community, after

significant events such as shows were

cancelled and people were forced to stay

inside, residents too are feeling the financial

and emotional devastation of the tough

times.

However, now is the time to celebrate

because Norah from Australian Amusement

Organization understood this and has

organised a Family Fun Fair to come to town.

"We have gone and organised it ourselves

because it's the only thing that's going to

save us now," she said.

"Also, to be able to wake up last week and

know I can afford to pay the registration on

my truck is a massive relief because it wasn't

going to happen if I didn't have these fairs.

"We are also aware of the effect the drought

and pandemic have on country communities,

and when we do shows, we can see the

financial and emotional devastation

when things are tough, and it's

awful.

"So for us to be able to go out start

working, put the smiles on peoples

faces and for those communities to

walk out with a smile on their faces,

it must be doing them a world of

good to have some normality back

and fun.

"It works both ways."

The Family Fun Fair will be

happening at the Chinchilla

Showgrounds on October 22 from

5pm to 9pm, October 23 from 4pm

to 9pm and October 24 from 10am

to 9pm.

With the traditional shows

cancelled, it's the perfect way for

residents to still get there show fix

and experience the aspects they

know and love.

"We've got showbags, Dagwood

dogs, dodgem cars, other rides and

the games," Norah said.

"We have put together a pretty

good line up which is sure to make

people happy.

"It's a family event, so there is

something for everyone, and with a

$2 entry fee, it's only the price of half a cup

of coffee.

"Anyone under five is free, though."

Like any other event that is run in the modernday,

Norah has worked closely with both the

Western Downs Regional Council (WDRC)

and Queensland Health to develop a COVID

safe plan to ensure the safety of both patrons

and staff.

Everyone will be required to sign in at the

event at entry, there will be sperate entry

and exit points, numbers are capped, hand

sanitiser will available, and social distancing

must be adhered to.

"If they are a family group or a group of

friends that come in together, they can move

around together," Norah explained.

Although things have been a bit of a

challenge with the team having to bend over

backwards with the restrictions, they have

been successful.

Also, despite taking a significant risk to come

out to the country towns and operate at half

capacity, Norah said if they didn't do it, they

would die.

"Our money is depending on these carnivals,

and we are hoping people support us," she

said.

"We've taken a huge risk at a huge expense,

and we would appreciate anyone who comes

through the gate."

Despite the rules and regulations, Norah said

that she has received tremendous support

from both the council and Queensland Health

and hopes their event will inspire others to

host COVID safe events as well and get the

community back together.

"Queensland Health is encouraging people

to give them a call and get their events

together," she said.

"The Western Downs Regional Council have

also been brilliant and want to help the

community to get their events happening

and not fear all the regulations.

"It's a lot of extra jobs, but once you have

them in place, it's manageable.

"If we can get the public to do the right thing,

it helps us present a COVID safe event which

is encouraging to other local groups to go

ahead with what they do.

"In saying that we invite any organisation to

come down and have a look at what we are

doing.

"I'm happy to explain things and discuss

them because I think seeing how it's working

makes life a little bit easier and it's important

that our communities start to interact again."

The Family Fun Fair has already been to Dalby

and Kingaroy and will head to Nanango after

Chinchilla with the previous ones already a

great success.

"I'm a whole lot happier," Norah said.

"One night at Kingaroy, we had kids walking

out with showbags bigger than themselves,

fairy floss in hand and smiles on their faces.

"I was so happy I could cry."

So, make sure you don't miss out on all the

fun and head to the showgrounds for a good

time and to show your support.

The 2019/2020 swimming season

has been described as a whirlwind

for the Tara Dolphins but despite

the challenges brought their way,

they didn’t let anything slow

them down.

The quickly enforced COVID-19 lockdown may

have meant that their end of season breakup

and presentations had to be postponed so

instead saw it as an opportunity to start the

2020/2021 season off with a bang.

The first club night for this season which was

held at the Tara pool last Wednesday began

with the usual AGM and election of new

office bearers.

The club welcomed newly elected President

Matthew Prain, Vice President Myra-Lyn

Frauenfelder, Secretary Jaime Hirst, Treasurer

Rebekah Ey, Publicity Officer Chantahl

Stedman and Club Coach Michael Steepe.

The Tara Swim Club said they would also like

to acknowledge the wonderful work of the

previous executive committee and especially

that of Immediate Past President David

Email sports results & news to: news@thechinwag.com.au

SWIMMING PAST PREVIOUS SEASON AND DIVING INTO A NEW ONE

Gunther, who has contributed over seven

years as President of Tara Swim Club.

They defined David as an avid volunteer in

many local organisations and a cornerstone

of the Tara community and that the club and

town of Tara is so grateful for the support

David has given over the years.

Newly elected President Matthew Prain said

he is looking forward to building on the

strong base that has been established over

the past few years.

“Outgoing President Dave Gunther and the

various Committee Members have created

a great little club that is big on participation

and having fun, which in turn has led to some

great results at higher levels,” he said.

“I don't plan on changing anything in this

regard and look forward to working with

all parents and the newly appointed Coach,

Michael Steep to ensure each swimmer is

given the best opportunity to achieve their

goals this swimming season.”

Once all the official announcements were

made, the evening then continued with a

fabulous pool party for the swimmers and

followed by presentations.

Trophies were awarded and focused heavily

on personal achievement with a points

system.

Points are earned for participation in each

stroke and bonus points for each time a child

sets a new personal best at their weekly club

nights and the system is a fabulous setup

to encourage children to better themselves

rather than focusing on the fastest swimmers.

The Tara Swim Club said they were so proud

of their swimmers and their achievements.

Last season we had some outstanding results
