They were concerned that people were driving down the range instead of to Maleny; that the frustration was likely to cause accidents instead of preventing them and that: Over residents and business owners submitted their responses to the Montville Commerce survey. Results are being finalised and Queensland Transport and Main Roads officers will consider issues early in December. The winner is to be announced soon.

Australian Credit Licence Number N A four-year-old girl stepped on board a passenger carriage in Mapleton and took the ride of her life off the edge of the Blackall Range. The passenger carriage had waist-high wooden walls and a row of seats down each side, a galvanised iron roof, and canvas blinds ready to roll down if it rained.
In parts, the track was so steep every carriage brake had to be screwed down in an attempt to slow the descent. There was a switchback that only such a little engine as a Shay could have negotiated. But, oh the view! When they weren't driving through cathedral-like forests they could see right to the coast and. It took two hours to travel the 18 kilometres to Nambour. She still talked about that ride at the age of She was my mother. Originally, cane trucks were pulled by horses, then in the mill purchased the first of its steam locomotives, Moreton, to work the lines.
With promise of good cane harvests, the line was extended to Dulong in , however the Moreton could not negotiate the tight curves of the steep climb up Highworth Range. In the mill purchased the first Shay-geared steam locomotive, the Dulong, designed specifically with flexible joints in the drive shafts to enable the bogies to swing through the tight curves, stopping the loco from jumping off the tracks.
The Shay loco restored and on display at the Nambour Museum the geared drive of Shay locomotives gave them the ability to climb steep grades. As it turned out, growing cane was not viable on the range, but with the track in place, the mill decided to capitalise on the infrastructure and began carrying goods and passengers down to Nambour, particularly during the slack season.
The people of Mapleton could see the potential of extending the line to their village atop the Blackall Range and successfully lobbied the Maroochy Shire Council to purchase the line from the mill. In a second Shay, the Mapleton, purchased by the shire council, began scheduled services. This is the tram that my mother remembered throughout her life. The Mapleton was stabled overnight in a shed across the road from the village hall; the Dulong was stabled in Nambour.
With no turntables at either end of the line, both locos faced towards Mapleton, meaning they slipped down the ranges in reverse, relying on gravity and screw-operated handbrakes.
During crushing, the Dulong set off from Nambour at five each morning except Sunday , leaving empty cane trucks at farms on its way up to Mapleton. When the Dulong arrived, the Mapleton set off down the line carrying passengers, livestock, cream, sawn timber and logs. Dulong followed, collecting loaded cane trucks on the way to arrive at the mill by Mapleton climbed back up the range in the afternoon loaded with mail, newspapers and supplies for Mapleton.
This relay continued for 29 years until when improved roads and trucks proved too great a competition for the tramline, and the council sold the rolling stock and line back to the mill. The Shay locos play but a minor role in the story of the Moreton Mill. Although the mill closed in , its legacy lives on. And the township of Nambour is leading a push to once again run a tram service through its centre as a tourist attraction.
Of course, I was curious about the fate of the two Shay locos that my mother had spoken of all my life. It turned out that, in , the mill took the best parts of the Dulong and Mapleton to create one engine that they named the Shay. It was retired by the mill in where it remained on display for some years before being taken to the Ipswich Railway Workshops for storage. This unique little engine came to its final resting place at the Nambour Museum in Mitchell Street in , where a dedicated band of volunteers worked for hours faithfully restoring the Shay.
It is nice to know that some of my contribution to the Heritage Levy has gone to preserve a part of my family story. Recently reopened by a family from Cambodia it has become very successful, packed on a weekend and you an even pick your own! Workers in the field propelled their picking trollies along lanes of strawberries. Mount Tibrogargan stood behind us like a guardian. Yean Jimmy Lay was worlds apart from his beginnings in Cambodia.
Jimmy was born in It was only four years later that the Khmer Rouge led by Pol Pot became the ruling party in Cambodia. It was a time of hardship, widespread famine and ultimately genocide. My mum left first to try and get us a better place - I was with my dad, grandma and grandpa at that time.
It was under the control of the United Nations but run by the Thai Government. We stayed there for about six years and lived in a shanty. You had to build the house yourself, bamboo with a coconut leaf roof. We grew vegetables and then we bartered for some things like fish and fruit. Families also had an ID card to access food once a month. Villawood Detention Centre became their first home in the land of sunshine and kangaroos.
The teenage Jimmy was most thankful for this placement. I was so happy…plenty of food to eat. They had steak and lamb chop and roast pork. Never seen anything like that before! I had so much fun to eat food…for three months! The family settled in Sydney for a time and then moved to Queensland drawn by the warmer climate.
Me and mum bought a block of land. I was farming small crop like snow peas, beans, tomatoes and herbs and selling them at the West End markets. You can overcome that and become something. My boss moved up here to Glasshouse. Ten minutes drive to the beach and ten minutes drive to the bush! I take my kids to the beach. In spite of all the life changes he continued to sell at West End markets, an endeavour sustained for twenty years.
Thidoeun runs the shop while Jimmy looks after the farm. It took about five months working up to twenty hours a day, seven days a week to grow our farm. I wanted to make this place for people to come here and to pick their own fresh vegetable. His aim is to grow at least fifty per cent of the produce he sells at the market.
See how things grow. An advocate of nature conscious farming, Jimmy educated me about the daily cycle of bees whilst giving me a tour of the farm. He carried a box which was gradually filled with randomly picked vegetables. Mine for the taking! It was topped with handfuls of yellow cherry tomatoes and plump strawberries which were offered for a taste test.
The sweet scent of strawberry reached me before the fruit touched my lips. As we walked, Jimmy reiterated his desire to educate children and for people to come and pick their own vegetables. Early awareness of a health condition and how to manage it can, for some, lead to a long life lived to the full. This certainly seems to be the case for Kenneth, where art, heart and nudity all play a part in his creative story.
Following a playground accident, I suffered a stroke and a heart attack. My schooling was terminated fifteen months before completing primary school. Art was already becoming an important part of my life. His next job was working in a factory producing fancy plywood veneers. When the factory closed, Ken worked for James Hardie for five years.
It was not until that he began painting full time. He is completely self taught and has always used his spare time painting to satisfy his ambition to create beauty with his brushes and paints. He is a nature lover, with a passion for the Australian landscape and coastline which he captures on canvas in minute detail. One of his greatest attributes is his ability to render the interplay of light and shade in his paintings. Ken lives on the crest of the Conondale Range near Maleny, an area that has featured in many of his paintings.
He has travelled extensively around Australia photographing material for future paintings. Photography and painting have progressed side by side throughout his artistic career and he has won numerous prizes in both mediums. He has been a member of the Aspley Art Group Inc. No story about Ken would be complete without mentioning that Ken is a dedicated nudist. His determination not to pay the fine resulted in a threeyear battle with costs running into thousands of dollars and a great deal of unwanted publicity for Ken.
I have a large, very private property so no one can see me. I have a son and a daughter and five grandchildren. Eighty Five Years Young supplies, their quality, rate of flow and direction of flow.
Following a serious bout of ill health, Ken retired in , but different medication gave him a new lease of life. He has never had a cup of coffee or an alcoholic drink. Ken now paints when he feels like painting. He has no plans for retirement and still receives a great deal of pleasure teaching oil painting.
If you would like to meet Kenneth Wenzel and view his latest collection of paintings, he will be at The Montville Art Gallery from 11am until 2pm, on Sunday, October 18 and his paintings will be featured there for the entire month of October.

And the battle to reach this point was certainly a story worth hearing, as Victoria McGuin found out. Out strode Katy Fraser, with her signature baseball cap and grin, and reminded us that she could make whatever we wanted. Just hopped on a bus to Sydney by myself; then later Canberra, and finally Townsville where I worked as a Conference Sales Manager for a major hotel chain.
I wanted him to realise that he still had a life to live and he could do it. Katy was cleaning gutters at home and she slipped off the roof.
Miraculously, Katy survived, waking up a week later and going home within three months. So I set up a shed, and started making pallet stuff.
I remember ringing Marilyn, and we ran through the pros and cons. This will become an arty hub. Do I do orders or stock the floor? We need paint suppliers who can give us decent cheap paint. We need wood, nails, old pallets, anything that people can spare. And she would love to hear from creative people who might be interested in using one of the eight shops.
It seems the future will be busy and bright for this historical building by the railway tracks. It has potential, it has passionate people restoring it, and now it has pallets. For 25 years, the Maleny Toastmasters Club has been helping individuals overcome shyness, build self-esteem and gain the confidence to speak out and speak up.
We sent Gay Liddington along to a meeting to find out more about this dynamic group. Toastmasters came to the Blackall Range in bringing confident speaking skills and speech-craft courses to the community.
Margie and Bill Richter are known as the seniors of the club. Margie told of what led her to join the club seventeen years ago. I was absolutely terrified! Someone suggested I join Toastmasters and have been here ever since. I think that came from growing up with three older siblings who always spoke for me. Toastmasters invite you to a meeting: The warm-up talk communicate at such a noted event.
The activity was described as warming up from the inside. And it was fun! I needed to get over that. Interested persons may contact Dianne thoughts and really know how to present and get my Schiemann on I have learnt these skills. I can be humorous or dramatic, and tone of voice is important.

But The River rated high on the list. It was first performed in Montville in , had two performances for the Centenary of Federation celebration in and was recorded in Nambour Hall in John writes poetically about his experience of the Maroochy River, which finds its source in our Ranges.
It could be grey-faced and angry. It could be sinister, slowly creeping across lawns and gardens and into people's houses.

Doug reckoned it had potential. Doug took the instrument to his workshop and began researching its history—it is a Grandini Neopolitan mandolin made in the workshop of Thibouville-Lamy in France in the late 19th Century.
