2 Antique Buyers in the Gold Coast Area With Covid having forced us to spend plenty of time at home, many of us have taken to sorting our drawers and cupboards. Now is a fantastic opportunity to turn those unwanted items into cash. “We are keen buyers, especially of the items listed on our advert (see page 3). Everyone has something we want to buy, and nothing is too small for our consideration. We are just as happy to buy one item, as we are buying 10,000!”, says Mike Cornish, chief buyer for the company. The buyers will be in a convenient location in the area very soon (see page 3). If you are in doubt about any items you wish to sell, take them in for an instant appraisal. Especially wanted by the buyers are any gold jewellery items, broken or not, antique jewellery, collectables such as military medals, old coins and banknotes, and mechanical watches. Gold and Silver still at high prices With the gold price still at higher than traditional levels, right now would be an opportune time to go through the jewellery box and dig out those old gold chains, rings and brooches and turn them into cash. Mike says, “Now is a great time to sell. We will buy anything made of gold – old jewellery, coins, virtually anything, even gold teeth! We also need silver in any form, including cups, cutlery, old coins, even teapots and the like.” Old coins can toss up a rarity Check those drawers and cupboards, you may have a rarity lurking amongst your coins. “We want to see any old foreign coin accumulations. We will be quite happy to go through your coins on the spot and give you an idea of what we can pay. You just never know what can turn up!” Rolex and mechanical watches wanted Mechanical watches are needed urgently by the buyers. “Collectors at this stage want brands such as Rolex, Omega, Patek Philippe, Tag Heuer, and Longines, just to mention some. These brands can command good prices depending on the condition and model. In any event we will buy any mechanical watch, even if it’s only a few dollars for parts,” says Mike. “If you are unsure, bring any watches to us at the venues to have them appraised,” he said. Whilst we have a Covid safe environment at the venues, we also offer home visits for those unable to come to us. See our advert for home visit slots and get in touch to book yours in.

Here are some commonly asked questions about cane toads. Are dead cane toads still poisonous? Cane toads are poisonous at all stages of their life cycle including when they are dead and dried out. What are the signs and symptoms of cane toad poisoning? • Drooling or foaming at the mouth • Red and slimy gums • Vomiting • Disorientation • Dilated pupils • Increased heart rate • Panting or difficulty breathing • Seizures • High body temperature • Death What should I do if my pet has encountered a toad? • Using a damp cloth, wipe the inside of their mouth until the slimy coating has been removed - usually this takes 10 to 20 minutes • NEVER use a hose to flush the toxin from their mouth - as this can make them inhale the water causing lifethreatening pneumonia. • Call your vet and advise them of the poisoning and follow their instructions on what to do next.

5 Did you know all heavy vehicles and trucks will only enter the new railyard from Goldmine Rd? The new Ormeau railyard will: • Increase traffic congestion • Create noise 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can expect traffic delays and worsening road safety on Goldmine Rd and Lahrs Rd because of this project. Concerned community members are calling for the temporary northern site access at Prairie Rd (off Burnside Rd) to become a permanent second site access for trucks rather than endanger the users of Goldmine Rd, including the students and staff of Ormeau Woods State High School, and residents of the surrounding streets and Lewani Palms Resort. The project will give us more issues than benefits! This is not a new train station for commuters. It’s a railyard for train maintenance that will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means: • More noise: expect to hear up to 20 trains at a time shunting around the railyard and sounding their horns, as well as grinding and welding, and reversing alarms. • Artificial lighting all night: the railyard will be lit up around the clock. • Less community infrastructure: previous development applications for the site included lots of bushland, local parks and walking paths. This appears to be lost with this industrial development! Act fast to have your say! The project is running a community consultation and wants to hear about ways to minimise community impacts. This is your chance to ask the tough questions about how it will affect the local community. The opportunity to provide feedback ends on Saturday 2 March. Phone 1800 464 512, email qtmp@downergroup.com or complete the online survey at www.tmr.qld.gov.au/projects/ormeau-rail-facility Your feedback matters! Let’s preserve the liveability of Ormeau and protect everyone who uses Goldmine Rd. ADVERTISEMENT

6 The City wages war on mosquitoes with $1 million pledge The City has waged a war on mosquitoes, pledging an additional $1 million to the mosquito treatment program to tackle the escalating issue across the Gold Coast. The recent rain has provided ideal conditions for mosquito breeding and as such City crews have ramped up these activities and will continue them for the foreseeable future. Mr Baker said the additional resources will be used to purchase more all-terrain vehicles and trailers, increase our aerial program, and continue our drone trials. “We have dedicated all possible resources to getting this situation under control, and will continue to prioritise this work as we know it is a priority for our community right now,” Mr Baker said. CEO Tim Baker said as well as fogging and aerial treatments our pest management teams would be checking and treating all known mosquito breeding areas throughout the City every day until the situation had eased. “We know the mosquito breeding has ramped up over the past month and with little respite from the rain and humidity, this will be an ongoing problem,” Mr Baker said. “We are committed to reducing numbers through our programs but we can all do our bit to reduce numbers and keep ourselves and families safe from these pests. “Residents can help reduce mosquito numbers by emptying all containers that can hold water following rain.” He said some of the less obvious places to look include in the water reservoir of self-watering pots, in some plants and on top of rainwater tanks. Locations where mosquito treatments are taking place can be found at the City’s alerts page here: http://news. goldcoast.qld.gov.au/alert-section. You can protect yourself from mosquitoes by: • Limiting your time outdoors around dawn and dusk • Applying mosquito repellents regularly • Wearing loose fitting, light coloured protective clothing when outdoors • Screening doors and windows or using mosquito nets or air-conditioning. • Using mosquito coils. You can help prevent mosquitoes breeding on your own property by: • Disposing of all water-holding containers in your yard • Emptying flower vases, pot plants and other containers which hold water, at least once a week • Ensure house gutters are kept free of leaves and they drain freely, leaving no pools of water in low points • Screen all openings to tanks, wells or other large water containers with wire gauze, not coarser than 1 millimetre aperture mesh.

DEAL DIRECT & SAVE! With 2023 closing to a successful end, we are thrilled to be entering a prosperous 2024 offering premium sale prices and positive experiences. The last five years has seen a significant enhancement in the northern Gold Coast residential property sales market, with the last 12 months contributing appreciably to both the median sale price, number of properties sold and days on market. Pimpama saw the largest number of residential property sales in the recent 12 months – an exceptional 603. Comprised of 91 unit sales and 512 house sales, impressively, the average days on market sits at a low 20. In the last five years, Pimpama has seen a phenomenal 70.3% increase in its median value, 9.7% constituted from the last 12 months alone. Following in Pimpama’s footsteps, the median value in Ormeau has risen by 68.8% in the last five years. The last 12 months made a remarkable contribution with 324 property sales and a 10.8% increase in the median value. In addition, with 96 property sales, Ormeau Hills inflated its median value by 8.8% in the past year, and a collective 63.3% in five years. Both Ormeau and Ormeau Hills also share a low average of 20 days on market. Finally, Jacobs Well, a quaint fishing village situated just 10 minutes from the highway amongst the cane fields, is no longer a secret. Out of a property population of just 1126, 87 homes were sold in the previous 12 months, stemming an immense 15.8% surge in the median value. Jacobs Well houses are valued 88.8% higher than they were just five years ago, and despite sharing a higher number of average days on market, the results will never disappoint. Collectively, the suburbs of the northern Gold Coast have all experienced a tremendous increase in value, alongside favourable market conditions. Based on the last 12 months, there’s been no signs of slowing yet!

12 Corn & Capsicum Quesadillas Prep Time | 10 Minutes Cooking Time | 10 Minutes Quesadillas are a versatile appetizer (or dinner!) — we used corn and capsicum here, but feel free to swap out and in whatever combination of cheese and vegetables you prefer. These are a great finger food to serve at parties. • 1 x 400g tin tinned sweet corn • 1 x capsicum • 1 x red onion • 1 ½ cups grated tasty cheese • 8 soft white round wraps • ¼ cup olive oil • 1 avocado • ½ cup tomato salsa • ½ cup sour cream Heat the grill pan over medium-high heat. Drain the corn and place in the large mixing bowl. Cut the 4 sides and the base off the capsicum and place in the food processor. Peel and quarter the onion, and place in the food processor.

13 PEACHEY CG NEWS Grow with your garden You want to grow veggies and you’re a complete novice where do you start? 1.Understand your area, grow what suits your zone and find a location that has at least 6 hours of sun, morning sun is the best, well drained and in a convenient location. 2.Healthy soil, as this is the food for your plants, enriching your soil through composting makes sense - it’s natural, cheap to do and works wonders. 3.Grow what you like to eat and when you get these components right then you’re 90% assured of success for your efforts. What if you live in a small space? Use the all the same principles as I’ve outlined and do CONTAINER GARDENING. Make sure your container is approx. 20-30cm in depth and will hold soil with plants and let excess water drain out. A great recipe for heavy feeders like veggies in containers is, 1/3 potting mix, 1/3 compost, 1/3 aged manure. Also you will need to feed regularly.

President Mia’s Tip I start the year off writing on my calendar all the best times to plant my leafy, fruity and root veg according to the moon phases. Why? Because as the moon and its gravitational pull effects the tidal oceans, it’s easy to understand how the moon then has similar effects on the moisture in the plants and the soil. By planting according to the moon phases, I now have a guide which helps me create rhythm and flow for each month. Now I have a PLAN for what to plant when for best results. Or come along to your local Community Garden for helpful hints, tip and a cuppa n chat! Herb of the month SORREL, Ooh, this delightful herb is a lovely addition with its lemony flavour. And red veined sorrel for those who enjoy a little bite. Is happy to grow in full sun and partial shade. Hardy … water every 3-4 days. The more you pick it the more it will grow. Though it simply clumps in the one spot. Sorrel does contain Oxalis Acid so put it in your cooking in the last minute, to break this down. Sorrel does provide you with Vit A , B1 and C as well as the minerals calcium, potassium, phosphorus, iron and sulphur. Pick young leaves as they are tender for salads giving a sharp acidic taste. Traditionally used as a sauce to accompany meals of rich meats, fish, omelettes and stuffings. Add leaves to boiled potatoes and other root vegetables, and scrambled eggs. Recipe Sorrel Soup: 500g of Potato peeled and diced 250g of sorrel leaves chopped 2 tbls butter 2 litres water 1-2 tsp salt Pepper to taste 2 egg yolks Melt butter and add potatoes, sorrel, water, salt, and pepper in a pot.

We swap your kitchen scraps (plant based, coffee grinds and carbon no meat please as it ferments very quickly and smells “orrible”) and make nutrient rich soil. Peachey has successfully offered this swap service for over a year now. Take an empty bucket from the table near the parking area and when it is full leave your full bucket and take another empty bucket. To reduce the smell when adding in your scraps put some paper or sawdust in between the layers, like a composting toilet and there will be no smell. We then layer this with lawn trimmings and mulch to breakdown into beautiful soil. Community Share Chest is on site at Peachey. This is a service of a community pantry for all if you are passing by drop in and take a look. Grab something for your drive or grab something for someone else.

14 Community Notices FREE FOR NOT-FOR-PROFIT, SPORTING & COMMUNITY GROUPS email your notice to info@localnewsletters.com • Deadline 24 January for next issue My Police Bulletin Flood affected areas on high alert for contractor scams Police are urging the community to be wary of potential scammers trying to take advantage of flood-affected areas as communities begin to recover. People posing as tradesmen, treeloppers or electricians are known to approach people during times of hardship and offer to get their premises restored or repaired, or trees cleared for exorbitant prices. Scammers may use email, text message or social media to try and trick online uses into revealing account information or financial details. The most common online scams involve fake websites to try and get the victim to pay for nonexistent products and services, asking for personal and financial information and installing malicious software on devices. If approached by any person offering services or a tradesperson offering to help, ask for their business card or to see their General Construction Induction Card (White Card) Worksafe Queensland If offered electrical help, check the provider’s electrical licence online - Electrical Licence Register. If you are unsure about an electrician, decline their services and find a licenced electrical contractor yourself either online or through Master Electricians Australia on 1300 889 198. If you witness any suspicious activity in your area as recovery efforts continue, report it immediately to police. To check if your contractor is licenced, visit Electrical License Search. To learn more about scams: www. scamwatch.gov.au. If you have been the victim of a cybercrime, you can report this online at ReportCyber. If you have information for police, contact Policelink by providing information using the online suspicious activity form 24hrs per day at www.police.qld.gov.au/ reporting.
