AGENDA

Breaking

the cycle of

poverty

AMBITIOUS AIM TO RAISE

$3.5M FOR CHARITY

A new report shows federal and state

governments are failing disadvantaged

Australians, including the tens of

thousands of children who live in poverty.

WORDS: Colin Brinsden, AAP

Australia has made no progress

in a commitment it made

six years ago to halve the

number of people living in

poverty by 2030.

New research shows unless urgent

action is taken, between 280,000 and

550,000 young Australians born in the

next decade face a future of poverty.

A report by the Committee for

Economic Development of Australia

(CEDA) titled Disrupting Disadvantage

says the country needs to fundamentally

change how it identifies and supports

disadvantaged people and urges the use

of data to act earlier to prevent children

being locked in a cycle of poverty.

CEDA chief economist Jarrod Ball

says the full effects of the COVID-19

pandemic are yet to be revealed.

“But there is already evidence the

pandemic has further exacerbated the

financial, employment and health

hardships of Australia’s most vulnerable,”

he says.

“Unless Australia addresses these

issues now, we will be entrenching

the next generation of poverty and

disadvantage.”

In 2015, Australia committed to

halving the number of men, women and

children living in poverty by 2030 under

the United Nations’ Sustainable

Development Goals initiative.

Six years on, Australia has made no

progress against this commitment with

the proportion of Australians living in

poverty remaining above 13 per cent.

“What is of most concern is that

despite making no progress towards this

commitment to significantly reduce

poverty, governments have set no

intermediate targets, milestones, reform

actions or reporting frameworks to

change course,” Mr Ball says.

“By choosing to do nothing and

ignoring the need to change Australia’s

piecemeal social support system, we are

making a choice as a society to commit

too many young Australians into

entrenched disadvantage.”

Close to one in five (or 17.7 per cent)

of Australian children under the age of 15

are living in poverty, and research

shows they are three times more likely

to experience poverty in adulthood.

Support for the disadvantaged is

fragmented and disconnected, spread

between federal and state governments

with little information sharing between

programs, resulting in individuals and

families slipping through the cracks, the

report says.

CEDA wants to see shared data across

all levels of government to address this

problem and identify those most at risk,

enabling early intervention strategies to

break the cycle of disadvantage.

CEDA recommends a new

intergovernmental agreement by 2025,

linking federal government data, such as

Medicare and Centrelink, with that from

state governments, such as health, child

protection and justice data.

It would work in a similar way to New

Zealand’s integrated data infrastructure.

“We have an obligation to use all the

tools at our disposal to overcome

entrenched disadvantage,” co-author of

the report and CEDA senior economist

Cassandra Winzar says.

Local Woolworths stores are part of an

ambitious donation target to raise the

equivalent of seven million meals this

Christmas, to help support charity partner

OzHarvest meet the growing demand for

food relief across Queensland.

One in six Australian adults are now

considered severely food insecure and

more than half of the people affected by

food insecurity go a full day each week

without eating.

To mark the seventh annual Christmas

Appeal with OzHarvest, Woolworths

Queensland aims to join in achieving a

record fundraising amount of $3.5 million,

in partnership with customers, to support

Australian families in need – this is the

equivalent of seven million meals.

Sunshine Coast Woolworths customers

can buy a 50 cent token when they shop in

store or online, which will help provide the

equivalent of a meal to those in need.

Customers can also choose to round up

their purchase to the nearest dollar, with

proceeds going to the Christmas Appeal.

Fifty cents will also be donated from

every limited-edition OzHarvest Santa

cookie sold in store from November 24.

Woolworths has committed to a donation

of $500,000 to kick off the appeal.

For more information on how to

support the appeal, visit woolworths.

FAST FACTS

Brown Friday

As a protest against frivolous spending

and the madness of Black Friday sales,

Cards Against Humanity removed its

flagship product from its website on

Black Friday in 2014 and replaced it

with something described only as a

“bulls#*t box”. The $6 box sold more

than 30,000 copies on the day, but when

customers started receiving the product

they found it was literally just that – they

had bought themselves a $6 box of bull

poo. True story!

COVER STORY

Festive

food

for a Sunny Coast

Christmas

How do Santa, Christmas crowds and festive

foods successfully traverse the path from

snowmen to sandcastles? In our southern

hemisphere summer, an outdoor barbie may

replace the indoor oven, but in most other ways, it looks

like Sunshine Coast locals settle for traditional fare –

albeit with prawns and lashings of seafood.

Champagne makes an early appearance – even on

Christmas morning for some families – along with

Christmas puddings, pavlovas, glazed hams, roast pork

and the humble barbecue chook.

This year, we talk to Sunshine Coast locals about

their choice of culinary delights for Christmas and in the

spirit of giving, they share their favourite recipes

with our readers.

Martin Duncan with Tanya from Bakies Cafe

Caloundra

Martin Duncan – Sunshine Coast Foodie,

Sconetime host, brand ambassador Bassett Barks

Martin says for him, a great Christmas day dinner means

enjoying a picnic on the beach.

“However, this year is a bit sad as my dear mum is

down south and has been locked down for months and

will stay down in New South Wales.”

In keeping with the Christmas spirit of sharing and

caring, Martin is bringing together a circle of friends

and food.

“I’m rounding up my closest friends who can’t get to

family and we will celebrate life, friendship and how

blessed we are to live on the Sunny Coast.”

As a food lover, Martin starts festive feasts on

Christmas Eve.

“Christmas Eve will be traditional fare with leg ham,

prawns and pavlova and/or Christmas pudding,” he says.

My favourite Christmas treat is a glazed ham, and my

favourite thing is to bring out the ham on Christmas Eve

with little hot rolls with butter and mustard whilst having

a beverage or two,” he adds as a warm smile wafts across

his face.

“Oh, my – yum!” he exclaims.

While Martin says he does enjoy a fine Christmas

pudding, there is one special delight that takes his fancy.

“I love, love, love a good pavlova (must have berries

and passionfruit on top of cream),” he explains.

On Christmas Day neighbours and friends are

descending on Martin’s home to share in something a

little different.

“As most of us used to like to travel we are having a

French feast with oysters, pate, terrines and Yule log for

dessert,” he says.

GINGER GLAZED HAM

Recipe from Buderim Ginger

• Half leg ham

• 3 tsp dijon mustard

• ¼ cup orange juice

• 1 cup brown sugar

• Jar Buderim Ginger Original Ginger Marmalade

• Cloves

METHOD

1. Preheat oven to 180°C (fan forced 160°C).

2. Use a small knife to cut around ham shank about

10cm from the end. Run a knife under the rind,

around the edge of the ham. Gently lift the rind

off by running your fingers between the rind and

the fat. Score fat making a diamond pattern.

3. Place ham in a baking tray, cover with foil and

cook for 1.5 hours.

4. Meanwhile combine mustard, orange juice, sugar

and marmalade in a saucepan, stir over medium

heat for five minutes until marmalade dissolves

(some whole ginger pieces may not completely

disolve). Remove from heat and cool.

5. Stud the ham with cloves and brush evenly with

the glaze.

6. Bake in oven, basting occasionally, for one hour

or until golden brown.

and NightQuarter

SERVING

tip

Add a seasonal

summer twist to your

pudding and serve

with fresh mandarin or

preserved blood

orange.

Michelle says due to COVID, hospitality work

demands and relatives living interstate, she misses

being with her immediate family. However, that

doesn’t mean being alone. Instead, she has her

in-laws and a large work family to celebrate with

throughout the festive season.

On Christmas day, she says: “I have grown up

around our beautiful beaches so traditionally we

head out for a surf followed by croissants, mangoes

and champagne.

“We always sit around the family table with bonbons dismantled with

paper hats goofily on our heads, enjoy fresh prawns, honey glazed ham,

turkey, cranberry sauce and chat potatoes... all smothered in gravy

of course.”

Nevertheless, despite all that tasty food, there’s really only one thing on

Michelle’s mind: “To be honest, I never eat much of the main course. For

me, it is all about dessert and the brandy sauce! I have a teaspoon of

Christmas pudding, three tablespoons of ice-cream and then fill the rest of

my bowl with brandy sauce. It is my grandmother’s recipe and I look

forward to having it every year. I treasure the brandy sauce and always

make too much, so I can savour it for days as a special treat.”

*Michelle has shared her Nan’s Christmas cake recipe and brandy

sauce recipe.

Todd Widdicombe – Husband

and father of four, 92.7 Mix FM

Drive announcer

COVER STORY

“Our family is bang up for a good old Aussie Christmas feast no

matter where our mob has gathered. This year it’s at our joint here

at Warana and we’ll be celebrating with a mix of hot and cold

culinary delights,” he says.

“We always have a solid triple smoked ham on the go, there’s a

coupla barbecue chooks, a hot La’Mackle (boneless lamb roast

wrapped in crackling.”

Todd doesn’t hogg the job all to himself, he dutifully entrusts

his bro-in-law to curate a perfectly roasted pork on the Webber.

“It’s a five-can job,” he explains.

However, Todd takes full responsibility for the prawns, which

for the Widdicombe household appears as an esky full of worldfamous

Mooloolaba prawns.

“It wouldn’t be Christmas without prawns,” he emphatically

states. “This year I’m thinking of bringing back the good old

‘Strayan’ prawn cocktail as an entrée with my not-very-secret

homemade seafood sauce. As long as there’s plenty of prawns for

the prawn peeling comp, she’ll be apples.”

As always, there’s no discussion when it comes to dessert

choices: “A firm favourite every year is my mum’s trifle. Sure, the

pav’s a treat and we all love a good plum pud, but the classic trifle

is KING. Also, because my mum Jen is 88 now, it’s a bowl of brandy

with a dash of sponge, jelly and custard in it! Happy days.”

Tips for storing prawns

Most prawns are snap frozen at sea – just like baby peas are

snap frozen to lock them in their prime. Unless you know your

prawns have never been frozen, prawns (cooked or raw) can

be refrigerated for two to three days between 0–4ºC.

Leave them in their shells, place them in a single layer on a

plate or tray, cover tightly with plastic wrap and store in the

coldest part of the fridge.

If your prawns have never been frozen they can be stored in

the freezer for up to three months at -18ºC or below.

NEWS

The future

looks

healthy

Vitamin SC is a new campaign launched

by Sunshine Coast Council to encourage

new businesses to set up in our region,

creating more local jobs for future

generations. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

Thanks to the new state-of-theart

city centre at Maroochydore,

an international runway, and

international submarine

cable, the Sunshine Coast is already a

magnet for big thinkers and innovative

business people.

In a campaign to further highlight

these features and attract even more

work and economic opportunities to the

region, while keeping the relaxed

Sunshine Coast lifestyle at the forefront,

the Sunshine Coast Council is launching

Vitamin SC (Sunshine Coast).

The campaign title is a quirky take on

the positive benefits a boost of vitamin C

brings to our bodies. However, in this

campaign – the emphasis is on the

benefits a boost of Vitamin SC brings to

business. For instance, it points to the

Coast’s affordable business locations,

growing regional economy, the region’s

broadband cable’s superfast data speeds,

$12.5 billion in Sunshine Coast

infrastructure investment, and supportive

business networks.

The council’s economic development

portfolio councillor Terry Landsberg says

the campaign is aimed at out-of-town

business leaders, encouraging them to

consider the Sunshine Coast as a

potential business location for some or

all of their operations.

“By attracting these entrepreneurs to

the Sunshine Coast, we are future

proofing our region and ensuring our

residents can grow up here, study locally

and secure a prosperous career here,” Cr

Landsberg says.

“Thanks to the region-shaping

infrastructure projects delivered by the

council, state and federal governments

and the commercial sector, the Sunshine

Coast is offering just that opportunity.

“This is the smart place for businesses.

We are opening up new and exciting

employment opportunities including

professional jobs our residents would

otherwise need to relocate to, outside the

Sunshine Coast.”

“The Vitamin SC video series

highlights some of our very best

entrepreneurs and the perks they enjoy by

working here.”

Cr Landsberg says the Vitamin SC

campaign is not designed to attract

more people to the region. Rather, it

aims to attract new businesses

that will provide new high-value

employment opportunities.

Caloundra Chamber of Commerce

CEO Brady Sullivan says as the region

continues to grow, it is important to have

conversations about talent development

and retention.

He says the Sunshine Coast is no

longer just a region where people come to

live by the beach and work in hospitality

and retail, but a place where children can

grow up to become lawyers and engineers

in their own backyard.

“We need to be saying to people there

are significant job opportunities here

across a range of roles,” Mr Sullivan says.

“It’s no longer just hospitality roles,

we have three insurance firms in town

now. You can come here and choose to

be a lawyer or an engineer or you can

pull beers or work in retail – all the jobs

are here.

“We need to be future focussed in

developing talents and create a 10-year

plan to develop talent and opportunity for

Sunshine Coast Council is launching the

Vitamin SC campaign to encourage

business leaders to consider the operating

on the Sunshine Coast

kids on the Coast.

“We need to say we understand

what the future trajectory looks like

here on the Sunshine Coast.”

Mr Brady says in the Caloundra area

the once 75-plus age demographic is

becoming younger, with many residents

between 45 and 60. He says Aura is

attracting an average age of 29.3 who, for

the next 10 to 15 years, will be locked

into the region raising children and

paying mortgages.

“That age down there is really young

and if that pool of people is in their

thirties across the next 10 years, then their

interest is developing opportunity and

jobs and I think that’s where that future

focus is.

“We don’t need to lose the feel and

culture of the Sunshine Coast, we just

need to be having a future-focussed

conversation on what the Sunshine Coast

looks like in 15 years’ time and what we

need to do to bridge that gap.”

AIMING FOR 5000 BAKSLAPS

A Sunshine Coast man who lost his sister to

melanoma is hoping for a record number of

people joining Australia’s Biggest Bakslap.

After Tess’ death in 2012 from inoperable

melanoma in the middle of her back,

Raphael McGowan (pictured) learnt that is

one of the riskiest areas of the body. He

created Bakslap in 2017 to promote sun

safety and this year hopes to set a world

record for the number of people applying

sunscreen within a 24-hour period, aiming

for 5000 participants. This year’s event will

be held online on December 12. “I didn’t want

Tess’ death to be in vain and after doing a lot of

fundraising and research, we found that

getting sunburn on your back is the most

at-risk place for developing fatal melanoma,”

Mr McGowan says. “With skin cancer numbers

on the rise, particularly in southeast

Queensland, we are constantly working to

raise the awareness of sun safety and this

event is an easy and fun way for people to

participate. “The event has grown and grown

over the past three years and to help manage

logistics in the current COVID-19

environment, we’ve taken it online so we can

get more people to help spread the word about

sun safety as we head into the summer period.

“The previous record was set last year when

3190 people participated; we are working hard

to reach more people so we can achieve our

goal.” Over the past five years, Bakslap has

increased its distribution to more than 80

retail outlets across most states and is also sold

in Singapore and the USA. More recently

Bakslap has formed a partnership with Cricks

Volkswagen Sunshine Coast, where Mr

McGowan recently took possession of a new

Volkswagen Caddy Van with Bakslap branding

to help promote sun safety. To register for

$2500

The Queensland Country Women’s Association (QCWA) invites secondary and tertiary

students in Queensland to apply for a range of 2022 bursary offerings. There are 22

bursaries on offer, between $500 and $2500, covering different ages and areas of study.

QCWA state president Sheila Campbell says the annual bursary campaign is one of the

association’s great joys. “Education is a cornerstone of the QCWA, so we offer a

number of bursaries every year to assist Queensland students with the cost of their

studies,” she says. “For some, one of the QCWA’s bursaries could mean the careerdefining

difference between continuing their studies or not.” In 2022 QCWA will mark

100 years there are five new For information and application forms, visit qcwa.org.au/

NEW ALL-DAY PARKING RATE

Mooloolaba’s undercover ParknGo car park will

have an all-day capped price fee for the next six

months. Built Infrastructure group executive

Tom Jamieson says access to Mooloolaba will be

easier with the new flat rate parking fee of $5.

“The six-month flat rate is an outcome of the

Mooloolaba Visitation Study undertaken by

council, in consultation with the Mooloolaba

Chamber of Commerce, between August and

November 2021. Motorists parked for less than

an hour will be charged $2.50 and once over the

hour, parking is capped at $5 a day.” Charges for

vehicles parked at the temporary Brisbane Road

of $2.50 with a maximum daily charge of $12.50.

VOLUNTEERS RECOGNISED

Volunteers are the backbone of every community and on

December 5 they were recognised across the region for

International Volunteers Day. John Ognino has been

volunteering his time with not-for-profit organisation

Suncare Community Service for almost a year. Currently

studying veterinary science at university, he says the

opportunity to volunteer gives him the chance to work with

people who need company, and learn skills to help him in

the future. Mr Ogino currently visits Suncare customer

Ernest Tebby once a fortnight, where the pair work on

building model boats together. “Ernest was a master builder

before he retired, so he’s the project manager and directs me

as to what we’re working on each visit,” Mr Ogino says. “I

love that building model boats offers a diversity of different

challenges, which require different approaches.” With

volunteer numbers across the region declining since the

onset of the COVID pandemic, organisations, like Suncare,

are always in need of help. Visit suncare.org.au.

A digital First Nations experience, funding assistance for heritagelisted

contributed by all properties in the region, which this year raised $1.9

million to document, research, conserve, protect, promote and

provide access to places, facilities and events that define the stories,

history and values of the people and culture of the Sunshine Coast.

Food

for the

soul

Urban Angels provides 10,000 meals a

month to people in need across the

Sunshine Coast and it all began with one

woman’s big idea. WORDS: Ingrid Nelson.

What began as a labour of

love for Eumundi mum of

three Birgit Sowden 12 years

ago has evolved into a

dream role at the helm of a Sunshine Coast

charity kitchen, a not-for-profit

organisation designed to connect the

community by providing nutritious frozen

meals to those who need it most.

Operated under IFYS, a charitable

organisation providing a range of specialist

support and intervention programs for

children, young people and families, Urban

Angels has been dishing up an unbelievable

10,0000 meals each month to vulnerable

families and individuals on the Coast for

Birgit Sowden

the past six years. But Ms Sowden has been

preparing meals made with love for those

in need long before that.

“It’s what I am, it’s what I do,” she says.

“There is always someone doing it tough

who will benefit greatly from a pre-cooked

meal, whether they are ill or elderly or just

fallen on hard times.

“I have always loved cooking, and

I’ve always had a lot of drive, so as a

stay-at-home mum, when my three boys

were at school, I approached the school

and asked if I could use the home

BY THE NUMBERS

What it takes to prepare 10,000

pre-made meals each month

• Over 700kg of meat/chicken/

plant-based protein

• Over 150kg cheese

• Over 2500kg of vegetables – some

bought, some rescued and/or

donated by OzHarvest, SecondBite,

Farmers First and backyard growers

• Many 100s of kilos of rice, pasta

and other pantry items

• Over 1500 volunteer hours a month

delivering meals door to door.

economic rooms to cook in bulk for

families who may need some support. I had

outgrown our kitchen at home.

“I had a few mums help me set up a

community kitchen and it just went nuts.

We had endless support and donations

from the school community and ended up

cooking around 500 meals per month,

which I never expected to be able to do.”

It wasn’t long before other schools

caught wind of the successful program.

“I met with them and gave them all my

recipes, plus instructions on how to source

ingredients, how to raise funds, everything

they needed to get started,” she says.

As fate would have it, some of the meals

found their way to someone at IFYS and a

seed was planted to develop a similar

program for the charity down the track.

“IFYS asked me to come join them and

set up a community kitchen and that was

how it all began to really develop.”

Describing her role as more of a calling

than a job, Ms Sowden says although she

didn’t realise it at the time, it’s something

she has been preparing for her whole life.

“Everyone has a journey. It took me a

long time to work out what I wanted to do,

but I realised, in hindsight, I had been

doing it all along. I just wasn’t doing it as a

formal vocation.”

But it’s the army of volunteers who

donate their time in the kitchen or driving

the delivery vans, who Ms Sowden credits

as the most important ingredient in this

recipe for success.

“We have four chefs and more than 70

amazing volunteers, who we are so very

grateful for and always make sure they are

happy, because without them none of this

would be possible,” she says.

“Some people are happy to do the

chopping and washing up and there are

others who do the deliveries. Not

everyone can do the delivery work as it

can be quite confronting, you see a lot

and you have to be resilient. People tell

you their stories, so a big part of what we

do is just sit and listen.”

Volunteer Kerryn Limpus

Ms Sowden says the gift of a meal helps

those who are vulnerable feel supported

and less alone.

“I know from experience food is a great

connector and feedback has shown that

this small gesture of providing a meal has

helped even those in deepest distress to

move closer to inner healing.”

Delivering regularly to schools, migrant

students and families, individuals being

supported by community agencies, young

mums at the STEMM program, as well as

elderly people, families affected by illness

or financial difficulties, the homeless

community any many others, Ms Sowden

says there is a huge demand and more help

is urgently needed.

Fully funded by IFYS, Urban Angels is

supported by organisations such as

OzHarvest, which donates 400 kilos of

produce per week and SecondBite, a

national charity rescuing food that would

otherwise be destroyed.

However, Ms Sowden says donations

are becoming increasingly difficult to

secure and a revenue stream is required.

“I’m a social enterprise nutter, it’s such

a good way for the world to work,” she

says. “When we have revenue coming in

and all of that goes back into what we do

for the community, that is the perfect

model in my mind.”

Having recently been gifted a fully

fitted, state-of-the-art kitchen in

Maroochydore by a generous benefactor,

Ms Sowden says she can now concentrate

on recruiting more delivery volunteers and

fine tuning their distribution to ensure the

help goes to those who need it most.

And of course, donations of time,

money and produce are always welcome.

“Those things are invaluable,” says Ms

Sowden. “All the pennies add up and every

little bit helps.”

Sleep bus

to arrive

The long-awaited sleep bus for homeless

men is due to begin its trip from Melbourne

to the Sunshine Coast on January 11.

WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

After months of waiting a date has finally been

set for the arrival of a bus that will provide

shelter for men living rough across the Sunshine

Coast community.

Maroochy Neighbourhood Centre’s Derek Hopper says

a sleep bus to house up to 20 men per night is 99 per cent

complete and due to arrive in the region on January 14.

In an effort to address the Sunshine Coast’s growing

homeless emergency, the centre last year began a

fundraising campaign to fit out a sleep bus after it identified

a lack of male crisis accommodation.

Since then, a fundraising campaign was also launched

to fund a pink bus to sleep women and children.

Mr Hopper says after multiple COVID-induced delays

in Melbourne, where the bus has been since April 2021 to

be reconfigured, and border closures that have hampered

the effort to transport the bus into Queensland, the date for

its arrival has been revealed.

Final spray painting job for the sleep bus

“The bus is due to begin its trip un on January 11 ready

for a celebration at Maroochy Neighbourhood Centre on

January 14,” Mr Hopper says.

“The bus is just waiting on a few final touches and the

signage, so it is 99.99 per cent finished.”

Once the first sleep bus arrives, the second bus will be

taken back down to Victoria to be transformed into the

women’s and children’s bus.

Each bus costs $100,000 to transform and the Maroochy

Neighbourhood Centre has been overwhelmed with

community support in raising money to transform the two

buses, which were also donated.

Once transformed, each bus will provide a safe lockable

pod with a television, charging ports and a toilet.

The most recent donation came from local business

owner David Krauter, who has witnessed the homeless

living on the streets around his office premises.

Mr Krauter, from Websites That Sell, is donating $5000

towards the sleep bus project.

“There’s just not enough funding to support the

homeless and the testimony to that is just seeing them in

the park near our previous office,” Mr Krauter says.

“We had people with stashes of their belongings all

around our premises at the time.

“Just imagine not being able to sleep because you’re

worrying that your life and safety is at stake, but also that

your belongings are going to be gone the next morning

when you wake up.”

A recent Maroochy Neighbourhood Centre survey

showed there were 62 people sleeping rough each night

within a five-kilometre radius of the centre.

Males make up 76 per cent of the homeless population

and females make up 24 per cent.

Mr Hopper says with the rental crisis worsening, each

week the centre was seeing more people in need of support.

“It’s got worse,” he adds.

“We’ve got families with two or three kids now sleeping

in their cars because landlords want to sell their place or

put the rent up $200 a week and wages have not gone up to

match that.

“It’s no longer just those with a low income who are

homeless, it’s hitting the middle and working class.

“If you are married or de facto and one of you loses your

job, that’s it – you’re maybe a couple of payments away

from being homeless.

“We have people walk through the door in tears, they

just don’t know what to do.”

Sunshine Coast photographer

Andrew Carruthers has risen above

many challenges to reach a point of

peace in his life. WORDS: Gail Forrer.

“These days I’m interested in the light

and the movement.”

Sunshine Coast wave

photographer Andrew

Carruthers is speaking about his

stunning surf shots. And yet, this

comment could apply from the very

moment of his premature birth and

subsequent abandonment at a Brisbane

Hospital, his life-changing health

diagnosis at 25 or his recent diagnosis of

early onset dementia.

With all of this, inclusive of the great

parts, such as his school chaplain role and

Photographer Andrew Carruthers. Inset: His stunning surf photography.

volunteer position as chaplain for the

Longboard World Tour, Mr Carruthers

navigates his life with Christian values and

a zest that compels him to contribute to

the community’s greater good. Innately,

he’s a glass half-full sort of person.

He says he was lucky with his adopted

parents. They were in their early fifties

when they visited the maternity ward and

went home to the Gold Coast with a tiny

baby boy. His adopted dad loved anything

to do with the water – fishing, swimming

– and put him on a surfboard at four years

old. They were also committed socialists

and he grew up in household living and

breathing political debate. He clearly

recalls his father going to Brisbane to share

his views at Speaker’s Corner and outside

Parliament House.

His father, he says, was a fatalistic,

scientifically-minded, evidence-based

person, not interested in religion, so he’s

not sure what led him to think about

spiritual things.

“I was 15 years old when I decided to

join the church; there was just something

in me,” he says.

Later on, when he found out his birth

mother was Indigenous and his birth

father part German and Viking, he says a

little part of him clicked.

“It’s that DNA thing, something there

inside of you – now I understand why I

love small places in the bush and

spirituality (from his mother) and the

ocean (the Viking in his father).

On the other hand, he is proud of his

heritage from the Scottish family that

adopted him. “They were all editors,

publishers and writers,” he says.

“And good, kind parents.”

He explains his adoption through a

unique and positive light.

“It’s like this when you are adopted,”

he says. “You choose your own adventure

story. You get put into another story and

it’s not your family of origin.”

During his childhood, he gained an

inkling of his heritage communicated

through a racist lens.

“It was just said that I had a touch of

the tarbrush in me – that’s all,” he says.

“It was said in a derogatory sense,

and I knew it was something not to

be celebrated.”

At 19, Mr Carruthers joined the

Australian RAAF where he worked filling

F-111 fuel tanks. Eight years later he was

discharged as medically unfit. The

exposure to high-grade solvents had

ruined his health. To this day, one of the

results from the solvents includes

chronic headaches from a cyst in his

brain which blinds his left eye, he says.

Additionally, the poisons have damaged

all his internal organs.

Nevertheless, an internal

determination had led him through a

life-long study of theology and onto

becoming a chaplain and youth worker.

“I was the first school chaplain at

Nambour High School,” he says.

“I loved it, but after three years, my

health got the better of me and I had

to leave.”

Mr Carruthers explains that he is not

a religious man, but he comes from

spiritual place.

‘I am a follower of Jesus /God, but I

have trouble with religion,” he says.

Following the school role, he moved

to work from his home office and became

heavily involved with the Christian

Surfers Association.

“I did admin and mentoring,” he says.

He also explains how their network

stretches around the world, including

building a youth centre in Bali after the

nightclub bombing and doing volunteer

building work in Peru after a volcano

erupted.

For many years, his work has also

included the volunteer position of

chaplain to the Longboard World Tour.

He loves this group of surfers, saying: “It’s

a sort of a tribal culture there and in my

role, I’m anything from a father, brother

or mate.”

“With professional sportspeople, it’s all

about their sporting achievements, their

sense of value and self-worth is all tied up

with that.

“It’s all about what you do, not who

you are.”

Mr Carruthers, says when these

athletes have to face failure, that’s when

he’s there, to connect them to their

whole person.

“I’ve married them and buried them. I

am there to connect them with

counselling – to give them back a sense of

wellbeing, spiritually and mentally.”

However, he has also experienced his

own physical challenges and twice his wife

and two adult children have nearly lost

him due to acute heart attacks.

“It’s like this,” he explains. “If heaven is

a party, I’ve got the invite, but I’m just not

ready to go just yet.”

So, he keeps on ticking, even

with a recent diagnosis of solvent

encephalopathy, which transcribes to

early onset dementia, he is not ready to let

go. Instead, he and his wife are packing up

and going travelling.

“If it gets worse, well at least I’ve done

this. If it doesn’t, it’s still good.”

“Look, I’ve had a chronic disease

since I was 25,” he says. “And I won’t let it

define me.”

That’s why he wakes each morning at

3.50am and is in the ocean by 4.15am

taking brilliant photographs of waves.

“It’s cathartic and healing for me,”

he says.

“I’m just compelled to do it – it doesn’t

matter if I sell them or not, I just do it.”

And finally, he says:

“A day in the ocean is much better,

than a day you’re not in the ocean.”

Eumundi Markets and Louise Formosa (inset)

A great place to start

The region’s markets are not only incubators for new local businesses,

but also provide wider economic and community benefits.

One of the most organic ways for

small business owners to get

established and connect with

customers is through markets.

Louise Formosa from Eumundi

Chamber of Commerce says markets are

important for homegrown success.

“The markets provide visitors with

the opportunity to actually meet local

fashion designers, musicians,

woodcraftsmen and jewellery makers,

and there is always that amazing feeling

of connection and building of

relationships,” Ms Formosa says.

“In today’s world of centralised

shopping facilities and mass production

lines, it’s the very opposite at the markets

as visitors often go home with a story of

a market stall owner they met or how the

product they purchased was made. This

adds so much more value to local products.

Then each visitor tells a friend their story

and by doing so, more and more people

learn to reconnect with buying locally.”

Ms Formosa says markets provide a

unique starting point for small businesses.

“Markets also provide a brilliant

opportunity for micro business start-ups

as there is relatively lower risk in setting up

and renting a market stall compared with

renting a retail shop,” she says.

“The markets enable entrepreneurs

to test their product, and make

improvements, if needed.

“One of the most satisfying things to

watch is a micro business start up, grow

and eventually step into retail shops in

other areas of the Sunshine Coast, or start

exporting or manufacturing, which in turn

leads to job creation and building a more

resilient economy.

“The markets enable people to become

self-employed, or downsize, re-start or

achieve work/life balances they haven’t

been able to do before.”

Ms Formosa says pre-COVID, Eumundi

Markets attracted around 1.2 million

visitors per year. It is one of the most

significant tourism attractions on the

Sunshine Coast. The markets, which

support 600 micro businesses weekly,

also bring significant economic benefit to

other aspects of the town, with the market

space and car park leased by local

not-for-profit organisations.

“With funds raised from market stall

fees or parking fees, these associations

have been able to improve the market

facilities, invest funds into other historical

buildings, purchase land, employ people

and engage local contractors.”

COUNCIL TO TRIAL NEW

TECHNIQUE TO NOURISH

OUR BEACHES

A technique new to the Sunshine Coast will

be used to address erosion at one of the

region’s most popular beaches.

Sunshine Coast Council has

announced it will trial an innovative

method of sand nourishment at

Maroochydore to protect the popular area

from the effects of severe weather.

The technique, called nearshore

nourishment, has not been used in the

region before and it involves importing

sand from outside the area and placing it in

the water, about 300 metres off the beach.

Waves, currents and tides will then

deposit the sand onto our beaches,

providing an additional buffer to future

storms and coastal erosion. The traditional

method is to beef up the beach itself, rather

than drop sand offshore.

Sunshine Coast Council’s environment

portfolio councillor Peter Cox says the

Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy guides

the Council’s work to manage our region’s

beaches from the risk of future erosion.

“A lot of work has gone on behind the

scenes over several years to inform the

long-term management of our coastline,”

he says. “We are using coastal data captured

through wave buoys, beach surveys,

NEWS

hydrographic surveys, ecological

monitoring, and wind data to shape the

project.This is in addition to studies that

have shown that there is a limited supply of

sand on the Sunshine Coast.

“Maroochydore Beach has been subject

to significant erosion events over the years

and adding new sand from outside the

region, such as the Spitfire Channel in

Moreton Bay, will help nourish the area and

protect from further erosion.

“The trial will supplement the existing

sand re-nourishment program that involves

collecting sand from the Maroochy River

and pumping it onto the beach. Trialling

the new technique will assist us to make

evidence-based decisions about the future

management of our coastline.”

Hitting the

charity

Fast facts

• In Australia there are more than

50,000 children in foster care.

• By age seven, 92 per cent of

children in foster care are below

the average reading level.

• 75 per cent of children in care do

not complete schooling.

• 42 per cent of children in care will

experience five or more foster care

relocations in their lifetimes.

Every day cyclists get their hearts

pumping by taking on Buderim’s hills,

but a charity event is challenging

cyclists to climb nine of the town’s hills

in three hours to raise money for a

great cause. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

An event that challenges cyclists

to tackle nine of Buderim’s hills

in three hours is happening

again this year.

After a break in 2020, the Buderim 9

Challenge is back. The event, which is not

for the faint-hearted, will see cyclist test

themselves on December 19 as they

attempt to ride 76 kilometres for a

worthy cause.

Event organiser David Wighton says

the challenge, which is now in its ninth

year, began after a group of cyclists

thought they would give the town’s biggest

road climbs a go in one ride.

“It’s grown from there and has become

a really big charity event as well,” Mr

Wighton says.

“They are all really tough climbs on

their own but you put the nine together

and it’s a really challenging event.”

Starting at The University of the

Sunshine Coast, cyclists make their way

up and down the hills of Dixon, Cogill,

Ballinger, Crosby Hill, Glenmount, Mons,

Lindsay, Jones and Mooloolaba roads,

finishing back at USC.

Riders can choose to take part in the

Buderim three, six or nine, or the electric

bike event.

Mr Wighton because of the gruelling

course, only 50 per cent of riders

complete all nine hills in the time frame

to become true “Buderim niners”.

“Some people do it every year and

they never make the nine hills,” he says.

“It’s a three-hour event, so you have

to be back within the time and you do as

many hills as you can in that time. It’s

tough getting up the hills but it can be

pretty quick getting down the hills.”

The event attracts a variety of riders

but is most popular with seasoned

amateur road cyclists. This year the

oldest rider is 75 years of age.

The 2021 event will raise money for

The Pyjama Foundation, which supports

the dreams of children living in foster

care.

Mr Wighton is expecting 300 cyclists

to participate in the event, with plenty of

vantage points for spectators.

“You can stay on top of Buderim

and just move along from King Street to

William Street and see the riders as they

reach the top of the hills.”

The event will coincide with

Australian Cycling Academy’s Sunshine

Coast cycle weekend for elite riders.

Registrations for the Buderim 9

Challenge are open at buderim9.com.au.

BUSINESS & FINANCE

INFLATION

EXPLAINED

Darryl Watt,

Ord Minnett

Buderim.

The lift in inflation this year has been a

source of concern for investors. Whether

inflation can be sustained at higher

rates, however, is the subject of much

debate.

Our base case is that some of the

recent price spikes are transitory. That

said, even with some easing in these

transitory factors (travel prices, labour

shortages and supply bottlenecks),

inflation is likely to settle at higher levels

than previously and is likely to be back

within central bank target bands. So,

how should investors approach this

scenario?

Equities are better placed to deal

with inflationary periods compared

with other asset classes such as cash and

fixed income. This is because inflation

normally implies stronger economic

conditions and because companies

can pass through higher prices to

consumers. So, in a healthy inflation

environment, equities should perform

relatively well.

A stagflation scenario – a

combination of slow economic growth

and relatively high unemployment

(stagnation) accompanied by rising

prices (inflation) – would be less

favourable for equities, but they should

still perform better than fixed-income

assets (where we are underweight) given

the latter’s returns are fixed and would

be eroded by inflation.

Within the equity market, rising

inflation favours cyclicals, while

defensive sectors are the ones that

tend to lag an inflationary cycle.

Major central banks have had

difficulty lifting inflation, and sustaining

it, since the 2007-08 global financial

crisis, if not before.

Australia’s inflation rate has been

on a downward trajectory, and until the

latest data for the September quarter,

had been below the Reserve Bank of

Australia’s (RBA) two to three per cent

target band. Meanwhile, at the extreme

end, Japan has been experiencing bouts

of deflation for a quarter of a century!

These scenarios came about despite

attempts by central banks to use their

monetary policy tools, in other words

interest rate cuts and quantitative easing,

to stimulate demand, and therefore

inflation, to within their target range.

This year, however, there has been a

noticeable upturn in inflation, led by the

US, where the core consumer price index

has already jumped from 1.6 per cent

year-on-year (YoY) to 4.6 per cent YoY. In

the euro zone, a similar measure has

risen from 0.2 per cent YoY to 2.1 per

cent YoY, while Japan has swung to

inflation of 0.1 per cent YoY from

deflation of -1 per cent. In Australia, the

trimmed mean consumer price index,

the RBA’s preferred measure, has risen

from 1.1 per cent YoY to 2.1 per cent YoY.

Danielle and John Pearce of C3 Powerhouse in Warana

A DECADE OF

DONATIONS

A Caloundra church is donating generously to

those in need. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

A

Warana church has racked up an incredible

decade of donations for members of the

Sunshine Coast community in need over

the Christmas period.

This year the C3 Powerhouse church has raised

$30,000 to organise 300 hampers filled with Christmas

goodies, something senior pastor John Pearce says the

entire congregation enjoys supporting. “We have a very

generous group of people who love being part of the

community and giving to the community,” Mr Pearce says.

“Early November every year we announce the

donation campaign and people give spontaneously and

generously. Then we have a team of 40 volunteers who

come in for a few days and pack everything up.

“We have people who were recipients of hampers in

years gone by now up on their feet and giving money to

give someone else a hamper, so it’s great to see how it is

being paid forward.”

Mr Pearce says over 10 years, the church has prepared

close to $250,000 worth of hampers that are donated

across the community where needed most.

“We work with chaplains through local schools and

they pick up a few to give to families in need within their

school community,” he says.

“We also work with child safety groups like Sunny

Kids, Act for Kids and IFYS to give them out, and there are

people within our own church community who are doing

it tough so we send them out as well.”

The hampers are filled with non-perishable goods,

including Christmas cakes, tinned meat and vegetables,

and games so families can enjoy a Christmas feast without

the associated expenses.

“Christmas can be really tough for lots of families, so

for us this can be a really practical way to share love with

people,” Mr Pearce says.

“It’s a chance to say we care and that there are people

out there who care.”

As well as the annual hamper drive, C3 Powerhouse

gives up to $50,000 annually to a range of organisations.

This December the church will donate $10,000 to IFYS

for its homeless hub and $10,000 to Caloundra’s Gateway

Care, which provides programs and services for residents

in the Caloundra region to alleviate hardships.

“We try to give to community groups each year,

somewhere between $20,000 to $50,000,” Mr Pearce says.

“There is a percentage we do locally and we also

recently sent $10,000 over to Afghanistan to help with

relief work. These funds are put aside for our board from

what comes in from regular giving.”

Mr Pearce and his wife Danielle have been the senior

ministers of C3 Powerhouse since 2000. Today the church

has a community of 1000 people from all walks of life.

CRUISING INTO CHRISTMAS

A charitable Christmas tradition is making its debut on the

Sunshine Coast this year. At the inaugural Sunshine Coast

Classic Car Christmas Pageant, classic car lovers will give

their support to locals with cancer.

Classic car owners Rick and Jaz Hoy (pictured) have

previously used their 1960 Bentley for various charities to

deliver gifts to children. This year they are donating their

time to drive the coastal route from Buderim up to Noosa,

and passengers have the opportunity to purchase a seat in

the classic car through an online auction. All profits will go

to Bloomhill Cancer Care, which provides personalised

support for those touched by cancer at its wellness centre

in Buderim.

“We thought, this year we should take this to a whole

new level and organise a huge fundraiser that’ll be so much

fun and celebrate everything we love about Christmas,” Mr

Hoy says. “We’ve been helping Bloomhill for a few years,

but now we’re seeing our friends in business and people

with beautiful classic cars getting behind it. Our intentions

are for this pageant to become a Christmas tradition.”

So far there are about 30 cars registered for the

pageant on December 17, which will begin at Buderim

Wanderers Football Club and cruise through Mooloolaba

and Cotton Tree before heading north to Noosa. To bid

for a seat, or become an event sponsor, visit

plans for 2020, the association is keen to

acknowledge the milestone with the

release of the book and an unveiling of an

honour roll recognising BWMCA honorary

life members and past presidents.

The book, Celebrating the Buderim War

Memorial Community Association 75th

Anniversary, has been edited by BWMCA

member Lee Rasmussen.

Mrs Rasmussen is the daughter of

Graeme Ensoll, who is a stalwart of the

BWMCA, honorary life member and jointly

responsible for the restoration of the Old

Post Office in Buderim in 1999.

Mrs Rasmussen says the book includes

information about BWMCA, which was

formed in 1945 to create a living memorial

to the wartime sacrifice of the service men

and women of World War I and II.

“The book includes information about

the association today as well as its history

and its heritage properties – the Old Post

LOCAL NEWS

BWMCA life member Simon Whittle with

Lee Rasmussen

Office, Pioneer Cottage and the Buderim

War Memorial Hall,” Mrs Rasmussen says.

“It also includes information about

some of the more than 70 community

groups affiliated with the BWMCA.

“The process of collecting information

from long-serving BWMCA members, the

affiliate organisations and the Buderim

Historical Society was a very interesting

experience, particularly as I have lived in

Buderim for such a short time.”

The honour roll is also on display at the

Buderim War Memorial Hall and copies of

the 75th anniversary book are available

while stocks last from the Old Post Office.

A SMALL DEED CAN

MAKE A WORLD OF

DIFFERENCE

Most of my best days at Sunshine Coast

University Hospital start with operational

services officer Karen greeting me and

thousands of others with an enthusiastic

welcome and sincere “have a great day!”.

I marvel at her relentless energy and

warmth, which until one day recently

I’d never seen wane. On this day she sat

uncharacteristically quiet, looking a little

shaken. It turned out she’d just been

abused by a man who took offence to

being prompted to wear a mask while

visiting a public hospital full of sick people.

Karen told me it happens regularly but

this incident was particularly heated and

resulted in staff and visitors having to step

in to help her, and security then escorting

the entitled fellow to his appointment.

Thank God for people like Karen – the

Eclecticables

at Magnolia

quiet achievers in our midst who deserve

but rarely receive reward for their selfless

approach to life. They think beyond

themselves and their immediate needs and

focus on what they can do to make the day

better for someone else.

Richard Lane from The Coffee Crew

has attended Wishlist and 92.7 Mix FM’s

Give Me 5 events for more than a decade,

providing a caffeine fix at early morning

broadcasts and donating every cent to the

cause.

Escape Hatch, the legendary local

group of Brendan Hogan and Steve Schultz,

has given countless evenings and

weekends to perform at Wishlist charity

events, donating their time to save us costs

because they believe in the cause. So too,

local gin distillery Sunshine and Sons.

To each I say thank you and I hope

you take some inspiration from this recent

social media post I read: “Thank you to the

man who gave me 20p in the car park at

West Middlesex hospital last Tuesday

morning when I found myself short for

parking. Thanks to you I was able see my

father alive for the last time. He died that

afternoon.”

Your act of kindness, or semblance

of self-restraint, might actually change

a person’s life in ways you’ll never know.

Sadly, so too might your selfish rampage at

someone simply doing their job. Be kind.

Project updates for division three

I’m pleased to advise the Coastal

Pathway’s link at Warana is now open

between Beach Access 236 (Minkara

Street) and the northern side of Beach

Access 235 (Langura Street). This is a great

result and I’m sure the community will

make good use of the new section during

the summer holiday period.

Since my last column, we’ve also

progressed several other projects including

footpath connections in Wurtulla, a

basketball half-court in Crummunda Park,

Wurtulla, and picnic seating at Aroona

Park.

COLOURFUL

Christmas

My

home

Christmas is set to be even

more festive than usual this

year and to reflect the joyous

mood, the trend for

Christmas decorating is to

use as many bright, joyful

colours as possible, which is

why we love this Christmas

table setting from Provincial

Home Living. Why stick to

red and green when you can

incorporate every colour of

the rainbow?

These festive paper

pinwheels from

Provincial Home

Living are a quick

and affordable way

to add colour to

your home this

Christmas.

To achieve a fresh new look

for your Christmas table this

year, look for decorations in

non-traditional colours or

designs such as these bon

bons from Provincial

Home Living.

The Aura Garden Outdoor Egg Chair is

’TIS THE SEA-SUN

to go shopping

If ever we needed an excuse to shop,

Christmas delivers and whether you are

a shopaholic or wish Santa would just

put a gift for everybody in his sack so

you didn’t need to think, ’tis the season to go

shopping!

First and foremost, Christmas is

incomplete without a Christmas tree

trimmed with shiny baubles, tinsel and

decorations. You have the option of a ‘live’

tree that can be a bit tricky to find or one of

the many different shapes, sizes and colours

that come in a box ready to put together

while playing Christmas carols.

Final touches that will really put you in

the Christmas spirit are fairy lights, window

decals, big, inflated Santas bobbing around

in the front yard and don’t forget the ‘Santa

Stop Here’ sign.

With the tree and sparkly lights done,

it’s now time to cover every possible square

centimetre of floor underneath and around

the tree, so let’s get ready to shop until we

drop.

THE PIÈCE DE RÉSISTANCE

There’s nothing quite a special as all

gathering around the Christmas table.

Regardless of whether it’s a traditional lunch

or a big bucket of cold prawns, setting the

table can be so much fun. With a little prep,

you will be sure to wow your family and

friends and give you an awesome feeling of

Image and product from Domayne

satisfaction. Traditional or casual, you need

to decide on your theme and what is going

to be the centrepiece of the table. This is the

case for indoor or outdoor gatherings, and

from there the rest will fall into place. When

making your list be sure to include

tableware such as serving dishes, cheese

boards and platters.

MY OPINION

the season for a glass of

bubbles or two, but some

bottle shops have

‘Tis

introduced ‘stock restraints’

so they do not run out of Christmas liquid

cheer. At some places, there is a limit to

the number of bottles of champagne you

can buy each time you stock up on plonk,

thanks to global supply chains bringing

about a big dry of the French fizz.

Australia is the world’s sixth largest

quaffer of French champagne, slurping

and sipping down 8.5 million bottles of

Pol Roger, Veuve, Moët and Mumm and a

stack of others each year. But a survey in

recent times pinpoints Buderim residents

as gold medal booze hounds.

Our glorious Buderim residents have

managed to buy more champagne than

any other suburb in Australia over a

12-month period, knocking Mosman off

the top position. Well, you sassy little

soaks, you. The folk on top of the hill are

sitting quite smug with their champagne

habits. Who knew Buderim was all about

the liquid lunch or the drink at dinner?

I have new champagne flutes this year,

thanks to Kmart. They are covered in gold

stars and I plan to get a gold star in

committing to drinking the stars.

CHAMPAGNE

GAMES

Sami Muirhead says champagne is being rationed

by bottle shops this year, so start stocking up if you

want plenty of bubbles for Christmas Day.

Sami Muirhead is a radio announcer, blogger and commentator.

For more from Sami tune into Mix FM.

My kids have grown up playing a game

called Catch The Cork, which involves

everyone standing 10 or so metres away

from the person with the bottle of

champagne. The bottle is opened and as

the cork sails into the air, it is like the

Hunger Games as everyone tries to catch

it. If anyone succeeds, they are paid the

handsome sum of $10.

Only two people have ever caught the

cork in two decades. One kid who I just

met that day actually pushed my kids in

the pool to make sure he caught that

sucker. The other person to win was my

brother-in-law and he played against kids

who were all about seven. He has been the

black sheep of the family ever since.

But when other families open bottles

of champers without playing Catch The

Cork, my kids think they are very strange

and sad human beings. They will no doubt

be exasperated with me one day when

they find out its only our family who have

made drinking a game that includes

monetary incentivisation.

Their baby scrap books do not contain

any sentimental photos of first teeth lost

or even first steps. Nope. But I caught on

camera every time they played Catch The

Cork. Cheers to the real family moments!

TOGETHER WE

ARE STRONGER

Another whirlwind year for the Sunshine

Coast Business Women’s Network

(SCBWN) was perfectly wrapped up with

our very special Christmas celebration.

They say time flies when you’re having

fun, and I feel like I have only blinked once

since I became president of the network in

June. What a privilege to have been chosen

to lead a network of incredible people that

are focused on supporting, uplifting and

empowering each other. That has truly

been a gift in itself.

From the conversations around the

room, this year has certainly continued to

provide its own roller coaster and I know

many of us are looking forward to a break

and some time to reset. Others, of course,

are coming into their busiest time ever and

I truly have all fingers and toes crossed that

our hospitality and retail sectors get the

welcome relief they deserve with a busy

and profitable holiday season.

As humans we crave certainty and

security and many are having to adapt to a

new way of life where neither are served up

on a platter. In saying that, together we are

stronger and please know that SCBWN has

an open door policy where anyone that

needs support is welcome.

I look forward to seeing what 2022 will

bring. There is no doubt we live in the best

community on earth on the Sunshine

Coast and the buzz from the Brisbane 2032

announcement and the lead-up projects

that will see our region morph over the

coming decade are exciting.

I encourage you to take time to restock

and prepare for another epic year in 2022

and keep your eye on the long-term prize

as you are faced with the day-to-day

challenges that are inevitable. May you

be gifted this season with the knowledge

that you are never alone and that this

wonderful community is always ready to

see you through. As Amanda Gore would

say, joy is the new high-performance fuel

and from all of us at SCBWN, we wish you

a truckload of joy this holiday season. See

you in 2022!

BUSINESS & FINANCE

IS LOYALTY TO YOUR

BANK COSTING YOU?

BUSINESS EXPERTS

Did you know, more than 40 per cent of

Aussies are devoted to just one bank, and

their loyalty is costing them thousands!

In an article in The Australian Financial

Review this month, Duncan Hughes

reports, “The margin between the rates

that banks charge loyal home mortgage

customers and what they charge to entice

new customers is widening, costing

millions of borrowers thousands of dollars

in extra repayments.” Interest rates on

existing home loans are currently much

higher, on average, than they are on new

loans. So, what makes homeowners afraid

when it comes to refinancing?

1. It’s too much of a hassle and paperwork

Things have changed since you took out

your last mortgage 15, 10 or even five years

ago. Now the majority of your refinance can

be done online, and your mortgage broker

will do most of the work for you.

2. I don’t want to go back to a 30-year

mortgage

It makes sense, you don’t want to start over.

But that’s not a problem. You can refinance

for any number of years from 10 up to 30.

3. It costs too much

Big banks typically charge establishment

and other fees. But a mortgage broker will

help ensure you avoid any costly surprises.

4. I won’t service now I have more

expenses

There are other ways to save yourself some

cash and increase cash flow. Part of the

servicing calculations takes into

consideration your ability to pay out other

debts. Rather than pay huge interest on

credit cards, car and other loans, use the

equity you have created in your home and

refinance these debts into one loan. Most

homeowners who do this save many

thousands of dollars per year.

5. I’m afraid to leave my bank

Staying loyal to one bank could mean you

forgo savings that you’d enjoy from a

product with an alternate provider.

Uniq Group can do a simple home

loan health check and help answer all of

these questions. For more information

call Matt Simpson on 0438 722 539 or

email matthew@uniqgroup.com.au.

When Parenting

Orders are breached

If a Parenting Order is breached it is

referred to as a contravention, and as

there is no automatic recourse, it may

become necessary to file an Application

with the Court. This can be done in one

of two ways:

An Application – Enforcement can be

filed when an Order has been contravened

and you want the Order complied with.

An Application – Contravention on the

other hand is a very serious, punishmentstyle

proceeding that is quasi-criminal by

nature.

When the Court considers an Application

– Contravention, they will consider

whether the contravening party accepts

the alleged contraventions, and if

accepted, whether they had a reasonable

excuse for doing so.

Up until recently, an Application

– Contravention was not often the course

of action recommended by Solicitors

because the financial and psychological

costs of filing such an Application were

rarely proportional to the outcome

received. However, as of 1 September

2021, the Court has introduced the

National Contravention List, with the

intention to efficiently deal with

Applications and ensure that parties are

compliant with Court Orders.

Christmas parties

and Tax Law

When providing food and drink, your

business needs to consider Fringe

Benefits Tax (FBT), Goods and Services

Tax (GST) and Income Tax. There are also

different tax treatments if the

entertainment you are providing is for

employees, associates, clients or

suppliers - and it may differ depending

on where you decide to hold your event.

Taxing Christmas parties at your

workplace on a work day

• If you’re holding a Christmas party at

your workplace and providing food and

drink (including alcohol) on a work day,

there may be no FBT payable for

employees, clients, contractors or

suppliers. These costs are FBT-exempt.

• Unfortunately, that means that there

will be no income tax deduction and no

GST credits to be claimed for your

Christmas party either.

• FBT exemptions may apply if the cost

is less than $300. This amount is

considered a ‘minor exempt benefit’.

Taxing Christmas parties held at a

restaurant, bar or other venue

• If you’re holding your Christmas party at

a location other than your workplace,

and providing food and drink (including

alcohol) to employees and associates,

FBT may be payable unless the costs

of the party are less than $300 per

employee.

The uncertainties

of death

This is the fourth in our series of articles

of the uncertainties of death.

Myth – “I can defeat a challenge to my

Will from a family member by making a

token gift to them in my Will.”

Wrong!

If a person challenges your Will,

they are seeking an amount from your

estate for their “proper maintenance and

support”.

The outcome of the challenge is

largely based on the challenger’s level of

need.

A token gift to the challenger won’t

extinguish their claim.

As well as their level of need, the

Court will consider factors including:

• the size of your estate;

• the nature of the relationship between

you and the challenger; and

• the other competing claims on your

estate.

There are a number of possible

options, far better than a token gift, that

can be included in an effective estate

plan to potentially prevent or defeat a

challenge to your Will.

When preparing your Will, you should

obtain advice on the options that best suit

your asset and family structure.

HOROSCOPES

ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20)

The stars boost your restless Aries

side. Slow down and pace yourself.

You certainly have the ideas and

passion to get an ambitious project

off the ground. Now all you need is

the patience and persistence to

finish it.

TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)

Are you stuck in a Taurus rut? With

Uranus stirring up your horoscope,

some overdue changes to your daily

routine will put an extra pep in your

step. Do you need to let go of certain

people, possessions or attitudes that

have passed their used-by date?

GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)

This week’s planetary patterns

emphasise the constant balancing

act between personal needs and

relationship responsibilities. The

weekend full moon (in Gemini) is a

wonderful time to spoil yourself with

a special treat!

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)

You’re keen to daydream the hours

away in your cosy crab cave as the full

moon illuminates your solitude zone.

Try to balance being idealistic with

being realistic. And don’t make serious

commitments unless you’re 100 per

cent certain you can keep them.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)

When it comes to hopes, wishes,

social networking and your peer

group, the more versatile and flexible

you are, the better the final outcome

will be. A realistic and disciplined daily

routine will also help you to pursue

your dreams and achieve your goals.

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

Work and home life look lively as the

full moon fires up your career and

domestic zones. The week will be

messy and disorganised, but try to

keep things in perspective. Expect

the unexpected, accept changes with

good grace and adapt accordingly.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

On Monday, Mars (the planet of

confrontation) moves into your

internet and communication zone, so

you could encounter problems at

school or with argumentative people

on social media. Don’t waste time

worrying or retaliating!

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

This week’s full moon focuses

attention on the resources you share

with others. Whether it’s income,

property, business or relationships, all

joint endeavours must be closely

examined. You also need to be

circumspect with personal finances.

SOLAR STORAGE THE WAY OF THE FUTURE

All homeowners should consider the short- and long-term benefits of switching to solar and installing battery storage. WORDS: Tracey Johnstone.

Storing solar-generated energy

in home batteries is back on the

climate action agenda as Australia

addresses renewable energy and

the imminent wide-spread introduction

of electric vehicles.

Also worth noting is that in the

future residential owners who make

environmental improvements to their

home may benefit from cheaper home

loans. The National Australia Bank

is currently championing a home

sustainability rating tool known as

Greenhouse. It’s early days yet, but it’s

something that owners thinking about

installing smart meters, solar power and

batteries should watch out for.

In the meantime, simply saving

on household costs is a good reason to

consider installing a battery.

Currently between 4pm and 9pm the

rate of power is higher, so when the family

comes home from work or school and

starts turning on home appliances, they

are drawing on peak-time grid power.

Imagine what will happen when you also

plug in to charge your electric vehicle.

Without battery storage, unused

solar power gets lost back into the grid.

Wholesale Solar Installers owner Bret

Davis says if there is a battery, the stored

excess tops up the power.

“If you turn an appliance on and

there is no solar as the sun’s down or it’s

a cloudy day, it will look to the battery

before it goes to the grid,” he says.

An increase in battery-stored power

could also help the grid during summer

storm blackouts. “For houses that are at the

end of the grid such houses as in Maleny,

Doonan and North Arm, which are not in

town, they tend to get blackouts frequently

through the year,” Mr Davis says.

The available crop of batteries is

expensive, costing on average $10,000.

Plus, there is the cost of installing an

inverter or for existing solar panel

systems, converting to a battery-ready

hybrid converter. But with the 10-year

replacement guarantee, the long-term

investment in saving solar energy and

contributing to a better environment is

well worth considering.

“We are seeing a lot more

manufacturers coming into the market

and battery technology is getting better,”

Mr Davis says.

“We are seeing a lot

more manufacturers

coming into the

market”

Bret Davis, Wholesale Solar Installers

For new house builds, the federal

government offers a rebate on the

installation of solar panels that covers

about 40 per cent of the up-front costs,

Mr Davis advises. To find out how much

battery storage you need, he suggests you

read your meter before 4pm and then look

at it again the following morning,

recording the kilowatts used.

AUCTION ACTION

MARKET REMAINS BUOYANT IN PRE-CHRISTMAS SALES

Southeast Queensland buyers

hunted down some top buys at

Thursday’s in-room Ray White

Caloundra auction with a

total of $18,179,500 changing hands on

the morning.

Principal agent Andrew Garland wasn’t

surprised by the interest of these buyers,

many of whom have a strong connection

with Caloundra, where they built fond

memories of family holidays in the area

during their youth.

It wasn’t just the waterfront homes of

Moffat and Dicky beaches that were

drawing in the big auction numbers on

Thursday. Battery Hill and Caloundra West

prices are climbing towards and even over

the $1-million mark.

The pale brick, partially refurbished,

three-bedroom, two-storey house at 11

Saracen Street in Battery Hill sold above $1

million. The 13 bidders saw value at around

$900,000 listing agent Tom Garland said.

“But they then went head-to-head to pay

$1.020 million,” he added.

Catching the ocean breezes that reach

the rise behind the beach and with a walk

of about 820 metres to where you can wet

your toes, he said the attraction of Battery

Hill lies in it being on the beachside of

Nicklin Way.

The buyers were a Brisbane couple who

grew up on the Sunshine Coast, went to

Brisbane to work, but will now return to

bring up their family on the Coast.

“The neighbouring suburb Dicky Beach

has an average price of $1.3 million,” Tom

Garland said. “Battery Hill has followed in

behind. It’s now considered affordable

real estate.”

Caloundra West’s 6 Galway Street

four-bedroom low-set house was a

deceased estate sale attracting 12 bidders

who were looking for value in a good

location and willing to spend upwards of

$40,000 to refurbish the original

condition home.

“The buyers recognised they couldn’t

buy a 650 sqm block with a large fourbedroom

home for $760,000 anymore,”

Tom Garland said. “In today’s market, a

beautiful home, fully refurbished is going to

be worth between $880,000 and $900,000 in

the same area.”

With a family in tow, the local buyer

saw Galway Street as his last chance to buy

an affordable property.

Of the 16 properties under the hammer

at the in-room auction, there was an

outstanding 131 registered bidders. Online

there was also 40 plus people watching

via Zoom.

Fifteen of the properties were sold

under the hammer. “There were a lot of

outstanding results. Number 18 Stewart

and 23 Grigor Street in Moffat Beach sold

for $1.61 million – both incredible prices,”

Andrew Garland said.

“The prices are still going up.”

The atmosphere at the auction was

electric. Some of the properties had 15

registered bidders vying for their possible

new home. The three-bedroom house at 18

Stewart Way had an extraordinary 27

registered bidders. It achieved the top price

of the morning.

There were a couple of people who

bought their property sight-unseen while

others came to buy and walked away with

another. “The people who bought 11

Cooroora Street (Dicky Beach) had hoped

to buy 18 Stewart Way but missed out and

ended up buying Cooroora Street.

“We had probably a dozen people

registered across a number of properties.

That’s the advantage of doing them

together. They were similar areas so if they

missed one, they could jump on to another

straight away.”

The mid-week auction is a favourite

of Mr Garland, who has been running

Thursday in-room auctions for 14 years.

“People are busier on weekends in their

free time than they are during the work

week. People would rather take a day off

work than take a day out of their social

time to buy real estate – I guarantee it

with certainty.”

are delighted.”

BRILLIANT MOUNTAIN CREEK

Listing agent Jodi Price of Ray White

Mountain Creek said the auction of 65

Karawatha Drive in Mountain Creek was

one of those events that can only be

described as brilliant.

Bidding started at $1.2 million with

nine registered bidders chasing the

three-bedroom house.

Right to the time the hammer came

down there were four active bidders. It sold

well over the reserve for at $1.305 million to

a local buyer.

“There were 39 bids in all,” an ecstatic

Ms Price said. “It was a great outcome for

the owner.”

SMART BUYER

The lucky buyer of the three-bedroom

home at 29 Golf Links Road in Buderim

came armed with what he needed to secure

this prized property.

Listing agent Brenden Southey from

Prime Property said there was plenty

of pre-auction interest and a large crowd

in attendance, but only one bidder

took the sale to under the hammer for

$1.130 million.

“There was a quite a number of other

parties that couldn’t buy at auction,” Mr

Southey said. Without their finance

pre-approved these hopeful buyers were

waiting to see if the property would pass in

and a sale could be negotiated afterwards

he noted.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Well, finally there might be some waves on

the weekend. Nothing too exciting but worth

checking early. The line-ups are going to be

crowded so I would recommended a 4.30am

paddle out. Also, encourage your friends to

stay up late the night before to make them

sleep in!

Anyhoo, I just watch John John Florence

win in Hawaii. When that guy is on, he is

unstoppable!

Enjoy the weekend.
