Gundy Bridge at Gutchy Creek
Phil Truscott: Recently I had an enquiry
about the new 10 tonne load limit on
the Gundiah bridge on Netherby Road,
as truckies have had to drive extra klms
to get to their destination because of
this new limit. The bridge has major issues with regards to capacity and the 10
tonne Load Limit is in force to protect
the structure until a decision is made as
to the type of repairs required. Council has responded to the information
provided by a structural engineering
consultant, with the result being the 10
tonne Load Limit.

Above: After MONTHS of Red Tape for the Bopple Surgery, Dr Reka Juhasz has arrived and is
taking patients from the local area, relieving the burden on Dr Suzy Baudeouf..
new doctor at Tiaro
Bopple Surgery has been looking for
an additional doctor since 2011, when
they first opened their practice in Main
Street, Bauple and patients were being booked 2 to 3 weeks out. Dr Suzy’s
practice was very popular and rural positions are traditionally hard to fill. The
surgery moved to Tiaro Medical Centre
in January this year, promising a new
doctor soon.
Medical practitioners are sought from
all over the world to fill the shortage of
Australian doctors. The Australian Government ensure a strict process to accept these doctors.
Paperwork. After a long process of
paperwork and excessive bureaucracy,
Dr Reka Juhasz, arrived from Ireland in
August with her family, only to find it
took until October for the Federal Government to issue her provider number.
However, Bopple Surgery are now
pleased to announce that Dr Reka is of-
ficially seeing patients at Tiaro.
Dr Reka Juhasz. Born, raised and
educated in Hungary, Dr Reka received
her medical qualifications in 2003 and
specialised in General Practice in 2007.
She moved to Ireland to practice medicine and lived in County Donegal for 7
years. Her special interest is in family
planning, antenatal care and Gynaecology. She is happy to see all patients,
adults and children with acute and
chronic diseases as well.
Family. Dr Reka, is happily married
and a proud mum of two little boys. All
are excited to be in the area and have
already been exploring the Fraser Coast.
New Patients.“Dr Reka is lovely and
fits well into our Practice,”said Dr Suzy.
“I am pleased that our patients can now
have a shorter wait for care.”
New patients can contact the surgery
for registration and appointment. Telephone 4193 9171.

CHRONICLE
Edition Number 57
G’day readers, I will not start off about
the weather as I thought that maybe
the weather is controlled by others
who have the opposite belief to mine.
(I’m sure you know what I’m referring
to.) I think that if I form a team of rain
dancers it will have just as much legitimate influence on the weather... maybe
more!!
Unfortunately our rain-dance team
leader has problems getting up in the
mornings so rain-dance tryouts are
confined to Sunday afternoon during
the croquet game at 3pm. Come along
and play with the balls whilst the team
leader decides if you are rain dancing
material.
Memories for the Gazette and
Museum. In the Gazette this month
is Part 2 of Joy Edmund’s stories told by
her dad. (p3) If any readers have stories
to tell of their own childhood or family
stories of the past, give me a call. I can
record the story and put it to print, or
you can write your own. All stories will
be stored in the museum family history
files for future generations.
The Trees are Dying. We reported
to you last month that trees are dying at
a fair rate. More readers are commenting that trees of any old age are falling victim. You might notice on Bauple
Drive, adjacent to Wood’s property, 10
pine trees in the row are dead and more
will go the same way. Col Bowman, our
resident tree guy, tells me the Council
and the DPI have referred the matter to
the Forest industries and we await their
report. However, please keep your eye
on trees dying close to your house. With
the wet season approaching it may not
take a lot to have them fall.
No True Story. Well folks, sorry no
True Story this month. I know Mrs
Groundwater will be sorely disappointed.

NOVEMBER 2014
Grey nomads, or people aged over 55,
who spend some or all of the year travelling around Australia, have become a
vital part of regional tourism.
Let’s consider the figures. Between 1995 to 2005, there was a 257%
increase in caravan registrations. In 2009,
people travelling domestically and staying in caravans or camping spent a massive 85% of their nights in regional Australia. On average, grey nomads travel for
163 days, or more than five months, in an
average year, cover 14,000km and stop
for about three days in a given location.
Regional economies. The Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia
(CMCA), notes that due to their travelling lifestyle, these travellers tend to be
consistent spenders on the road, averaging about $500 a week. Interestingly,
some 97% make a purchase when stopping in a town – in general on fuel, vehicle, living and accommodation expenses.
Significant Contributions. At a
local level, these spends add up. The
Central Highlands Regional Council in
outback Queensland has estimated that
grey nomads contribute almost half of
the region’s holiday leisure expenditure
with their $16.8 million boost to the region’s economy. This flows on to roughly
$10 million in value adding and 136 fulltime jobs, in a region with a population
of around 31,000 people.
Grey nomad tourism clearly has a positive effect on rural and regional economies, generating employment and stimulating business.
Long Term Growth. While these national figures are ten years old, grey nomad tourism has proven to be a resilient
market, remaining relatively stable despite the global economic downturn. A
key part of the benefit of the grey nomad
dollar is their relaxed approach to travel;
while the average spend may be a little
less per day than a standard tourist, it is
the length of time that a grey nomad will
stay in an area that makes their contribution so important for rural and regional
communities.
Getting the Most Benefit for the
Region. The CMCA notes that the eco-
nomic benefits for regional communities
are not distributed equally across the
country. Like any market segment, grey
nomads appreciate responsive and tailored service, and are known for repeat
visits.
A critical issue for any region wishing to make the most of the grey nomad
PAGE 2
market is the active word-of-mouth that
operates in this dispersed community.
This cuts both ways, with those regions
deemed ‘less friendly’ getting a proportionally lower number of visitors than
‘welcoming’ areas.
As to how to make the grey nomads feel more welcome? The
CMCA suggests making facilities available for longer stopovers and having
friendly local attitudes and tailored products.
Along the same lines, local infrastructure
can be important in capturing the benefits, as well as managing the impacts, of
grey nomads. A recent study shows that
despite the massive increase in caravan
registrations and the growth in the grey
nomad market, there has not been a
matching increase in caravan park sites.
In fact, the study found that the number
of caravan sites had fallen 12% over the
past 40 years, for a variety of reasons. This
suggests that one key way regions could
encourage the grey dollar would be to
ensure the availability of good caravan
sites, as increasing numbers of grey nomads hit the road to experience regional
Australia for themselves.

A COMMUNITY BUILDING PROJECT
Down Memory Lane
Tiaro’s Sons
This month’s salute to the Diggers is to:
James Francis Hourihan
Private 6426. 26th Battalion, 18th Reinforcement
James was born at Thinoomba,
Maryborough around 1886, and
attended Kilkivan School. He became a

Clifford, who lived at Tarong via Nanago.
He enlisted as a Private on the 15
August 1916, aged about 30 years.
He embarked from Sydney on board
HMAT A64 Demosthenes on the 23rd
December 1916.
He was killed in action on the 15th
September 1917 in Polygon Wood,
Ypres, Belgium. The place of burial is
not known but his tribute is on the
Menin Gate Memorial (Panel 23) Ypres
Belgium.

THE GUNDIAH GAZETTE
The Waldock
Family II
Continued from the September 2014 issue.
As told by Joy Edmunds of Tiaro.
My father (David William Waldock,
born in 1889) used to tell me things that
happened when he and his 4 brothers
and 3 sisters were young.
Old Scratch. When they went to
school in Tiaro they had a teacher,
Mr Baker, who behind his back they
called him “Old Scratch”. (I think Dad
told me he was father to some of the
Bakers who lived in Bauple when I was
a girl–Bert and John and I think there
was another but I cannot remember
his name.)Anyway Mr Baker had a very
large beard and when he got angry he
used to pull and scratch at it.
He was very good with the cane and
when it was broken he would go out on
the veranda and pull a wooden shingle
of the roof and use that instead. Dad
said that the play area was divided in
half one half for the boys and half for
the girls.
The Razor Gang. Dad always talked
about his Uncle and Aunt who had the
shop built which is now the Bush and
Bay Cafe. Dad and his young mates
(the razor gang) would gather up there
on Saturday, pool their money and
buy pounds of broken biscuits. Then
condensed milk came about so they
bought a tin to dip their biscuits in. Dad
always said he couldn’t come to that as
it was too sweet for him.
One time all of these lads decided it
PAGE 3
was so hot so they would go down to
the river for a swim. They went past the
cream factory down to the bridge- it
must have been the low one around the
bend. None of them had togs with them
so in they went in the nuddy. When
they heard a cart coming they got under
the bridge and started pelting rocks up
under the bridge. The poor old horse
took off and tipped Mr Roberts out, so
he walked back down, picked up the
clothes and took them with him. Dad
never did say what happened to the
Waldock boys when they arrived home.
Gun Story. When dad got older, he
had a gun, I guess it was his father’s or
Grandfather’s, and is now at the Manse
belonging to the Presbyterian Church.
The church was just on the other side
of the fence, so the Minister was always
calling for dad to go around Tiaro looking
for his horse. Dad said sometimes he had
to walk miles. Anyway, one morning he
heard the minister calling him urgently
and to “Bring your gun”. He went over
to find a large snake wrapped around
the rafters. Dad shot it alright, but also
shot a large hole in the Church roof.
I’m sure he had that gun for years...
never used again until one day a man,
who I did not know, got excited about
the gun so Dad gave it to him. I don’t
think anybody could use it, it was a two
barrel gun and it had lost the timber
for the shoulder rest, I wonder what
happened to it?
Dad died in 1978, aged 89. He is buried
in the Tiaro Cemetery next to my
Mother and beside my Grandfather and
Grandmother (Waldocks).
Thankyou Joy, I’m sure you have many
more stories to tell. The Gazette and Mt
Bauple Museum welcome reader stories
about the area.

TO BE NEEDED.
Good hearing can improve your quality
True story: At 75, volunteer friends of
mine, Pat & Brian, work at a Community Centre three mornings a week and
also run a support group once a month.
They have lots of time on weekends
and found they were just perfect to be
pretend “Grandparents” for children in
need of respite. They benefit, the children benefit, the carers benefit and
everyone is happy. They did the learning course and were accredited about
4 years ago. So don’t think you’re too
“old”, there is someone out there who
needs you. If Pat & Brian can do this
then you can. The time you can give to
a child is precious and children love to
have someone ‘just for them’.
Pat & Brian are never lonely and there is
a life about them. They are already great
grandparents and hope their home is a
haven on weekends for these precious
children.
So don’t waste your time, be like Pat &
Brian and share your love with special
children that need it. If you have an
open heart and open arms please think
about becoming a Foster Carer. They are
so glad they did, and expect to continue

Recognising Our Teachers
“The recently held Education Accord in
which our local residents participated
identified teaching quality as the number one issue for education. And, in
recognition of the value of our teachers,
the Queensland Government launched
the Jack Pizzey Awards for excellence in
education leadership”, the Member for
Maryborough Mrs Maddern said.
Mrs Maddern encouraged local teachers
to apply for School, Principal or School
Leadership Team of the Year awards and
the chance to share in $90,000 of grants.
Nominations are open now, and close
on 21 November for the Jack Pizzey
Awards, and on 8 December for the
other programs. For application forms

services from Australian Hearing.
Australian Hearing will be offering free

As the largest hearing provider in Australia, Australian Hearing services are
free or subsidised by the Government
for many Australian aged pensioners

Australian Hearing recommends you
get your hearing checked every two
years if you are aged over 60. As hearing
loss is a gradual process, seniors often

until it affects their daily activities, such
as listening to the radio, answering the

THE TREES ARE DYING
by Col Bowman (resident tree guy)
An article in last months Gundiah Gazette referred to the 80 year old Pine
trees on Trevor’s block (Gootchie).
It would appear that trees are dying all
through the Fraser Coast region – one
explanation could be a root rot known
as Phytophtera, a fungus which is active during wet soil conditions and can
live for 50 years in an old tree stump –
allowing this fungus to survive during
dry periods and explode when very wet
conditions occur.
The Pine tree, when it dies, becomes
soft and pulpy and the wood has no
strength. Not only do the branches fall,
the roots are not able to hold the tree
upright. In a storm or strong wind they
pose a risk to people, buildings, power
lines and roads etc. My recommendation is to remove them as soon as possible using a recognised tree faller, as
they can cause severe damage if things
go wrong. Some of these trees are 20m
and taller and will hit with a great force
falling from that height.

SPOOKY HALLOWEEN
Harry Potter, the Hulk, Superman and
even the Ninja Turtles turned up for
the Halloween Disco for families at
the spooky Gundiah Hall on 31 October. Over 40 children from the area
and some flamboyant parents enjoyed
dressing up and ‘getting down’. Ally
Willis donates her time and DJ talents to
make the event enjoyable each year, and
is getting quite a following. The event is
organised by Gundiah School P&C.
“We all had a terrific night. The children
loved dancing and getting dressed up
and it was great to see so many smiling
faces. Thank you to all of the volunteers
and parents who helped to make the
night such a great success,” said Josh
Seaniger, Gundiah School acting principal, who was masquerading as Shane
Warne, Aussie Cricket hero.Gundiah P&C

BPA UPDATE
Many residents from Bauple, representatives from the school, community organisations, the church and businesses
enjoyed a BBQ together on Sunday 19th
arranged by the BPA. Local politicians
were also invited to meet and talk with
members from the community.
Cr Trsucott was unable to participate,
however, Anne Maddern made herself
available and Lloyd Maddern assisted
in cooking up a storm with steaks from
Tiaro Meats.
Community Plan Review – We received feedback from the council CEO
in response to the review. Details will be
discussed at the next meeting in addition to suggestions for the 2014 review
as advised earlier this year, by the end
of November from Community Groups
and individuals.
Rates - council is unable to provide
a breakdown for rates spent in Bauple,
or departments, or councillor Portfolios.
Other progress associations are also
querying expenditure. Stay tuned....
RV site suggestions – thank you to
all those who provided feedback. This
was summarised with original documentation presented to Cr Truscott.
Disappointingly Cr Truscott advised
“nothing will be done at the RV site until the Fraser Coast Camping committee
have looked at the entire region’s needs.
This could take a while.”
Joint Progress Association
Meeting – after the first meeting in
Bauple, it was decided to meet regularly
and work together to ensure residents
are being represented. The second
meeting was held in Maryborough 21st
October. Similar concerns were raised.
Detailed update will be provided at the
next BPA meeting.
We were informed of a meeting for the
Maryborough Electorate at Maryborough Town Hall on Nov 19th. Community members are encouraged to
attend and hear from state candidates
and possibly councillors.
Next meeting (GM) is planned for No-
vember 5th 7pm at the Bauple Band
Hall discussing the community plan
review, response from council and suggestions for the next BBQ. Everyone is
welcome along and encouraged to get
involved.
Bauple Community Group Representatives are invited to the next Management Committee Meeting. BPA

POLICE TALK
Scams. Tiaro police are still receiving
reports of the odd attempted scam, so it
might be a timely reminder to locals to
be aware of the more common methods
scammers use.
Cold calls: this is where someone
calls claiming to be from a bank, the tax
office, or even Microsoft and will ask
you to verify details. They may even already have some of your details but are
asking for more. None of these agencies will call you, and if they do, ask for
the callers name and call the institution
back on a number you locate from the
phonebook etc. Never give out personal
information over the phone unless you
have initiated the call.
Emails/phishing: again claiming
to be from a bank or financial institution and asking you to click on a link.
Never click on a link in an email as this
will likely download a virus which steals
all your information for later use by the
scammer. There have even been some
fake facebook pages starting to circulate
stealing photos from the original person’s page. Again, before accepting, give
that person a call. Scammers do this to
try to gain further information for identity theft.
English/UK gypsies: these guys
pop up in the area from time to time attempting to sell items from the back of
a car or offering services ranging from
driveway repairs to roofing and painting. These people are notorious scammers. Obtain the vehicle details and
contact police.
Remember if it sounds too good to be
true it probably is.
Visit www.scamwatch.gov.au or call
1300 795 995 for more information or to
report a scam. S/Constable Michael Coleman

A COMMUNITY BUILDING PROJECT
Fraser Coast Fuel opens at Tiaro.
Local Caltex Distributor, Elton Keen, has recently opened a self-serve fuel station
between Hauritz Motors and Tiaro Machinery southbound on the Bruce Highway.
Open 24hrs/7 days a week, it offers quality fuel for Eftpos (all bank key cards), Visa,
Mastercard and CaltexStar or FCF card holders.
“We are trying to cater for the rural community whilst also remaining viable as a fuel
seller in the future,”said Mr Keen. “It took us some time to set up, but the delays were
mainly technical ones.”
The general idea is customers pay before they pump and your card is charged the
amount you allocate or actually pump, whichever comes first. (If it takes $80 on your
card, the authorisation will be reversed instantly, or within a couple of days to reflect

Buskers wanted for
Street Life Party!
Council is calling on buskers of all
shapes and sizes, tricks and talents
for the launch of a new Street Life

said the sound of street music will ring
out from the Maryborough CBD on
Thursday, 27 November and in Hervey
Bay on Sunday, 30 November. Places
are still available for local performers.
“Busking could include acrobatics,
animal tricks, balloon twisting, card
tricks, caricatures, clowning, comedy,
contortions, escapology, dance, singing,
fire skills, flea circus, fortune-telling,
juggling, magic, mime, living statue,
musical performance, puppetry, snake
charming, storytelling or reciting poetry
or prose, street art such as sketching
and painting, street theatre, sword
swallowing, and ventriloquism… to
name a few! “Basically busking is any
entertainment that will encourage an
audience to throw some coins into a
hat. “So if you have any or perhaps all
of these skills, we want to hear from
you.” Councillor Truscott said successful
submissions will receive their first year’s
busking license free of charge. For more

Cat and Dog
Registration
Door Knock
Council has started knocking on doors
of homes across the region to check
cat and dog registration information is
up to date. The move is part of a push
to cut the number of animals being
impounded and euthanised. Owners
of unregistered pets will be required to
register their pets and may be issued a
$227 fine for each unregistered animal.
There are currently 19,016 dogs and
4,471 cats registered on the Fraser
Coast, Community Health, Education
and training Portfolio Councillor Robert
Garland said. Cutting the number of pets
being euthanised is a particular focus for
Councillor Garland.“All pet owners can
help cut the number of animals ending
up in the pound by ensuring their pets
are registered and micro-chipped so we
can ensure they are returned home as
quickly as possible if they stray.”During
2013/14, 1,520 dogs and 588 cats were
impounded; 60% of the dogs and 15%
of the cats were returned home; 17%
of the dogs and 57% of the cats were
euthanized with the remainder given to
welfare groups to rehome. FCRC

Dean Weller hails from Gundiah
of late, and is by no means ‘small
fry’ when it comes to bullriding
on the world stage.
Dean and fellow team mates competed
in Senior Pro Rodeo Association in USA.
Over 2 months he competed in 11 rodeo
rounds and made the finals in Las Vegas.
Dean placed fourth in the world for the
40-50 year category. Not a bad feat for
someone who broke his upper arm in the
process.

brief
REMEMBRANCE DAY
Federal Member for Wide Bay and
Deputy Prime Minister, Warren Truss, is
encouraging Wide Bay residents to observe the traditional Remembrance Day
one minute’s silence this Tuesday, to
honour those who lost their lives while
serving Australia in wars, conflicts and
peace-keeping operations.
“Remembrance Day is held on the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice,
which ended World War 1, ninety six
years ago,”Mr Truss said.
This year, we particularly remember the
30,000 troops who would become the
first Anzacs. In November 1914, they
departed from Albany, Western Australia on a convoy of ships from the Royal
Australian Navy, New Zealand, Britain
and Japan, bound for service in the First
World War. En-route, the Royal Australian Navy secured its first victory at sea,
when HMAS Sydney forced the German raider Emden to ground at North
Keeling Island, allowing the convoy safe
passage through the Indian Ocean.
“All Australians should take a moment
to observe the traditional one minute’s
silence on Remembrance Day, and reflect upon the sacrifice made by more
than 102,000 Australians, who have
died for our nation in wartime,”Mr Truss
said.
“For the family and friends left behind,
Remembrance Day is a day of sadness,
reflection and remembrance for their
loved ones who served our nation and
made the ultimate sacrifice.
“During the minute’s silence at the 11th
hour of the 11th day of the 11th month,
we remember people of all nations who
have lost their lives through war, and
we honour those who have, and those
who continue to serve in the defence of
Australia.”
The Flanders poppy first became popular in Australia in 1921 to symbolise the
end of World War I and the rebuilding
of life. It was among the first plants that
grew after the devastation on the battle
fields in Northern France and Belgium.
“I urge all Australians to continue the
spirit and tradition of Remembrance
Day, by wearing a red Flanders poppy
and pausing for one minute’s silence at
11am on Tuesday.”
For more information and materials on
Remembrance Day, including Centenary of Anzac commemorative posters,
visit the Department of Veterans’ Affairs
website, at www.dva.gov.au.
