This year my
wife, Fern and I launched
Operation ANZAC Cheer 2013, a
which sent 115 care packages to our troops
serving in dangerous locations overseas.
Many Bundaberg and Hervey people
have suffered catastrophic loss and fatigue
recent fight with mother-nature, however our community
rallied to the cause.
Our troops still continue the grand ANZAC
tradition. We caught a glimpse of their
courage and bravery up close when
they helped with the recent flood rescues
I'd like to thank Gin Gin Country Reality
and Hervey Bay's Mary Nield’s Creation
Café who kindly helped collect parcels
for our troops. Fern Messenger has been
the driving force behind this
Hard Yakka-Youth Boot Camp
Channel 7 featured Hard Yakka Youth Boot camp
on Today Tonight.
Bob Davis is ex-SAS. He's served in the Australian
Army and knows what discipline and respect are.
Bob has developed a youth booth camp for young
males who are in need of some tough love.
Until recent times neither the Labor or LNP QLD
governments would offer funding for Bob's course
which is proven to work.
However after the launch of a parliamentary petition
its appears that will now change. Mr Newman's
Attorney General has promised Hard Yakka funding.
Given Mr Newman's record on keeping promises
we'll watch the situation closely.
Bob's had wonderful support from the
Hervey Bay Community. Under the Hard Yakka
heading is an article by the team at the independent
Globe news paper. Thank you Tony Bonner
At 16 years of age Chern'ee is one of Australia's
most talented and successful Indigenous Artists.
Her paintings sell for many thousands of dollars.
My wife Fern organised an exhibition for Chern'ee
at QLD's Parliament house.
The reaction was overwhelming. Chern'ee now
has two paintings hung in the Parliamentary precinct.
One of Australia's most exclusive and internationally
renown art dealers , Aboriginal Art Galleries has just
signed Chern'ee to an exclusive artist agreement.
Her paintings will only be sold in 3 shops in
Sydney, including one at the Rocks and another in
the Queen Victoria Building. Chern'ee's art will
also be taken to Hong Kong next month and
Suffering in Silence
Featuring nurse whistleblower
This is the health documentary Labor,
the LNP and Medical Board of Australia
don't want you to see.
It warned 2 years ago in 2011, about
QLD Health's systemic dysfunction and
corruption. QLD's Health
Minister Mr Springborg pretends
he's only just learnt about the patient
harm and official cover up.
This film was sent to him and all
LNP members 2years ago.
AIDS/HIV threat from PNG
AIDS and HIV infections have risen
again in Australia. Diseases associated
AIDs and HIV or co-morbidities like incurable
TB are also increasing.
The people of the Torres Strait warned
me in 2008 of HIV/AIDS entering into QLD &
Australia via PNG. AIDS rates in PNG have
been likened to those in Africa
There are 50,000 to 100,000
unmonitored cultural movements from PNG
to TSI each year.
This is the report on the HIV/ AIDS threat
from PNG that I sent to every politician in
QLD,including our now Australian
Governor General Quentin Bryce.
