Babinda Police Report
Firstly, let me apologise for not having the newsletter done last month. As some of you would know, we
had a long term missing person lost in bushland near to Golden Hole. The police commitment to find this
person was large and had an impact on your local police as we conducted initial inquiries, as well as
searching and follow up enquiries.
During this time we also executed a number of search warrants within the division, resulting in 9 people
being charged with 14 drug offences. This included the location and seizing of over 600 cannabis plants on
a large rural property. We want to rid our community of drugs but we cannot do it alone! If you know
something, let us know on 40671120 or Crime stoppers 1800333000. Your identity will be protected.
Beach access
Babinda police are working with council, other government agencies and residents to reduce the number of
people utilising quad bike and similar recreational vehicles on our beaches. Our beaches are not only
special places for us, but are nesting areas for turtles and birds. The use of recreational vehicles on beaches
is illegal. These vehicles are often unregistered and uninsured, and are used on the road to get to the
beaches, making their road use illegal as well. I encourage anyone to report the use of unregistered vehicles
on the road as well as beaches so we can help stamp it out.
Drink Driving
Drink driving continues to be a problem. Babinda police detected two drink drivers on the same night,
driving the same vehicle a few kilometres apart. We also find that a lot of people we test have had an
alcohol drink or two and are on or close to the limit. The practice of calculating alcohol levels is dangerous
at best as we all deal with alcohol differently, and there are a large number of factors which dictate how our
bodies deal with alcohol. My advice is: if you plan on driving, don’t drink alcohol.
Stealing
Again we have had a spate of opportunist thieves entering unsecure area of local residence and stealing
alcohol, cigarettes and soft drink. Luckily we have been able to identify those responsible and they are
being dealt with through appropriate justice avenues. I have said it before and will say it again, if you take
away the opportunity then most of these offences will not happen, so please do your best to lock up what is
yours, or you might find that someone else makes it theirs.
Community
Babinda has hosted some fantastic events recently. I would like to congratulate the organisers for the way
these events have turned out, with no policing issues. Changes to Liquor licensing and the introduction of
community liquor permits has put a lot of responsibility for management and controlling such events back
on the organisers. The local committees and groups have done a great job and taken ownership of their
events to ensure they are fun and safe for all; for that I say a big thank you. If any event, subject to a
community liquor permit, is allowed to get out of control, future events may be scrutinised more closely.
Disability access to the Police station
I am pleased to announce that we now have a disability access ramp for the police station. This will enable
everyone in our community to access both police and QGAP services at the police station.

Hello all,
As we slide headlong into the festive season I wish everyone a safe and productive
Christmas period.
Council is currently finalising a Facility Management Plan for both the Babinda
Rotary Park and Boulders campgrounds. We are setting in place a Local Law backed by
State regulations so that we can enforce the 3 day stay and issue infringement
notices accordingly. This will enable a fair and regulated turn-over of campers at
the parks for the benefit of all. We intend to close Rotary park to all overnight
visitors (day use area will still be able to be used) from early January 2015. All
patrons will be advised once a firm date is known, notices will go up at the park and
our website. The main reason for this is for a number of infrastructure works is to
occur before the next drive season. Once Rotary park is closed we intend to:
Convert the cold showers to toilets in the old amenities block, thereby
increasing the overall number of available toilets
Do internal road works to widen certain areas, address boggy sections around
the new amenities block and reseal the main road entrance.
Install new bollards, and replace some existing bollards to more clearly
define the camping and day use area, and to deter illegal camping
Install signage with camp rules, designated camping areas etc
Install basic kitchen / external sink to the old amenities block
We anticipate these works to take approx. 4-6 weeks weather permitting. Once complete
the park will be reopened under the new rules and Local Laws officers will assist in
implementing these. There will be some minor works completed at Babinda Boulders as
well. We will be:
removing the old wood fire BBQ;s that have seen better days,
installing new signage, and
relocating some boulders at the back of the park thereby creating an additional 2
sites.
I hope this clears up the works to be complete and the reason behind the timing of
the closure. If you have any questions, please give me a call.
Don’t forget to get yourself, family and property CYCLONE READY.

S.E.S NEWS
On the 11th October 2014, the Babinda S.E.S group manned the gates, erected and took down
the barricades for the safety of all during the Babinda Harvest Festival procession through Munro
Street.
For this help given to the Festival Committee the S.E.S received 80% of the gate takings which
represents their only fund raising for the year. Many thanks goes to all who willingly gave the
requested entry fee.
The group members voluntarily give of their own time to train every two weeks in order to
maintain their skills for when called on in emergencies.
New members are needed in order to continue to provide this much needed service to the
community.
Meetings are held monthly on the first Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
The group welcome men and women as new members.
I thank you all.

Resident evacuation & recovery register:
for residents of the Cairns Region who are elderly,
infirmed and/or disabled and have no transport or
friends or family in the area.
If an evacuation is required, those listed on the
register will be assisted by emergency service
personnel to evacuate their residence. In this event,
evacuees will be taken to a safe designated area.
Unfortunately emergency services will not have the
resources to assist with moving large quantities of
personal belongings or pets (except seeing-eye
dogs).
This register is updated annually. By placing your
name on the register, you are authorising Council to
give your details to any agencies that may be
involved in an evacuation.
If you answer yes to all of the following questions,
you may qualify for the register:
Are you elderly, infirmed and/or disabled?
Do you have no transport?
Do you have no friends or family in the area?
If you believe that your personal circumstances
qualify you to be placed on the register,
please contact:
Disaster Management Unit
(07) 4044 3044.
LINES FROM THE LIBRARY
We are fast approaching Summer and the hot and dry weather is already making itself felt. One
thing that we all start thinking about at this time of year is how to grow and maintain our garden
plants without wasting a drop of water. Well, here’s where your library can help. If you want to
find out how to drought-proof your garden, or just grow healthy plants with less water, then there
are a number of books available to you through your library. Some titles we can recommend are
“Dry Gardening Australia’ by .J Garner and .S Baker, “The Water-Wise Garden” by J. Hodges,
“The Garden Guru’s Guide To Waterwise Gardening” by N. Passmore and T.Cochrane “Drip
Irrigation For Every Landscape And All Climates” by R. Kourik and “Waterwise Gardening For
Australia”.
There are also some great tips on Cairns Regional Council’s website at
www.cairns.qld.gov.au Just have a look at Sustainability And Climate Change section under the
Environment Water And Waste tab. Also, available from your Council, are free tap tags and
fridge magnets featuring the sprinkler watering times. You can pick these up from your library as
well.
So why not call in to your local library and see what we have to offer to help your have a
blooming good garden this summer. See you in the library sometime soon.
Cheers,
Holly

MPHS NEWS
Congratulations to the staff who worked
with Debbie’s brilliant idea to put
together the most humorous float of this
years Harvest Festival. Very obviously
as you can see it was enjoyed by
participants as well as spectators.
A reminder that the joys of summertime
activities are almost here, so now is an
appropriate time to remind everyone of
the dangers lurking behind our fantastic
sunshine. Be aware of sensible skin
protection and also make an
appointment at the Doctors clinic for a
skin check, get all those freckles and
moles checked, it is painless and any
abnormalities detected are acted on.
We have pleasure in welcoming Dr. Carl Rotkirch
and his wife Kerri Lawler to our hospital, we will
be seeing a lot of them over the next 12 months as
Dr. Carl will be relieving frequently. Kerri is
currently working as our clinical social worker and
is a qualified psychotherapist, providing much
needed community support.
Mr. Michael Preuss (pictured with
painting) painted and donated this
lovely serene piece of artwork, this
painting is now displayed on our
hospital wall. Mr. Preuss is one of a
very special group who volunteer at the
hospital to help entertain our residents.
Our volunteers give generously of their
time. It makes me proud to see the
enthusiasm generated by these people
to get our residents involved in various
activities.
Thankyou to all of you.
The MPHS Team continues to visit the elderly residents in their homes both in and around
Babinda. This team, consists of a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, clinical nurse,
social worker and podiatrist. This team effort is to support the elderly to remain safely in
their own residence as long as possible. Our contact number is 40678280.

AMBULANCE NEWS
Sorry I missed last month column as I was away. Firstly the Local Ambulance Committee
(LAC) will be holding our AGM on Tuesday November 26, 6 pm at the Babinda
Ambulance Station. Being a public organisation visitors are welcome to attend. Leave a
message on the station phone (40671261) if you would like to attend. Please do not ring
this number for calling an ambulance as we are away from the station a lot more than we
are at it. Ambulance contact numbers are 000 for an emergency or 13 1233 for a
non-emergency. All you really need to remember is 000.
The LAC will be holding a stall at the Christmas in Babinda night in December. We will
have a resus manikin at our stall for anyone who wants to try their hand at CPR – you may
have done a course years ago and would enjoy the quick refresher. The rates are 30
compressions to 2 breaths, 6 cycles in 2 minutes. At our centenary open day many people
tried their hand and found it beneficial. The more the merrier. Hope to see you there.
Until next time,
Keep safe.
Justin Cairns OIC Babinda Ambulance
WATCH OUT FOR YOUR NEIGHBOURS
As the cyclone season approaches please make a quick visit to any of our neighbours who are elderly or have a
disability.
Elderly people are less likely to read newspapers to find out what services are available and are also more likely to
wait in silence for help.

On the morning of 31 October, St Rita’s School
set off on a special walk through Babinda
wearing red shirts and carrying red balloons. We
were participating in the annual event, Day for
Daniel, which was initiated by Bruce and Denise
Morecombe ten years ago. St Rita’s proudly
celebrates Day for Daniel each year, and our
walk aims to make a strong statement about the
importance of child safety, protection and harm
prevention.
It’s a miracle! Babinda & so little rain, only 37mm in
October. Perfect weather for doing so many
activities, as mentioned last month, many people
have been climbing Mt Bartle Frere. The ranger
there has informed us that if you are doing a day
trip it is not necessary to register with National
Parks, however, there is a white board there where
you can leave a message that you are doing a day
trip and perhaps an estimated time of return.
Visitors staying at Rotary Park reported that just

AROMATHERAPY-
GROUNDING WITH ESSENTIALS OILS
Life can get quite hectic at times with work, family, friends and the general pace.
Sometimes we take on so much that we become scattered, we feel out of balance.(In our
heads) Essential oils are especially good in these times they don’t just interact with your
energetic being, but really do work their way into the cells of your body. I have given a
small list of some of my favorites for you to experiment with at home that I personally
recommend to heal and to assist the body in restoring balance and releasing such feelings
as “fight or flight” response. In saying this you cannot get better than a blend especially
designed for your needs by a qualified therapist.
Lavender, rose, geranium, marjoram, orange, ylang ylang, vetivert, cypress, sandalwood,
cedarwood, patchouli and rosewood. (Choose 1-3 oils).
Spritz- Fill a glass spray bottle with spring or filtered water; add 1-3 drops of your chosen
oils. And then, mist! to your hearts content! Mist your rooms, clothes, bedding, curtains,
and most importantly, yourself. Bathing: Add 1-3 drops of chosen oils. On your body:
Essential oils you can’t add neat so dilute them in a cold pressed oil, face or body cream. I
would add 2-5 drops of your chosen blend to a 20ml glass bottle or jar. You can then apply
to your body (chakras face, feet) or by massage. Washing machine: Add 2 drops.
Taking names for 7 week Meditation course starting soon. Enjoy the following month stay
happy.
