Shoppers sue over aisle slip-ups as injury payouts reach $100 million a year

    by: Linda Silmalis and Lucas Townsend
    From: The Sunday Mail (Qld)
    May 06, 2012

GRAPES could be banned from supermarkets or sold in sealed bags to prevent accidents as shoppers claim more than $100 million a year in personal injury payouts after slipping in aisles.

At least one grocery outlet has more than $50 million worth of claims on its books - up 300 per cent from 2004.

Personal injury lawyers say the number of injured shoppers taking action is rising, with malfunctioning trolleys, loose rice grains and rogue grapes driving claims.

The costly trend has forced supermarkets to erect warning signs, invest in anti-slip mats and explore new ways of storing problem foods.

Grapes pose the biggest hazard but other problem foods include lettuce leaves, snow peas, beans and milk.

Catholic Church claims women should marry earlier and not be too picky to avoid the Australian man drought

    by: Damien Currie, Brendan Lucas
    From: The Courier-Mail
    May 07, 2012 12:00AM

WOMEN should marry earlier and not be too picky to avoid an Aussie man drought, the Catholic Church has warned.

Australia is experiencing a huge decline in the number of available men, with the church telling women they should also forget about living with their partners before tying the knot.

Statistics have revealed that there are dramatically fewer eligible blokes than single women aged 25 to 34.

The dire outlook has been backed by Federal Liberal MP Kevin Andrews, who is researching changes in marriage and families in Australia and has suggested the swing towards de facto partnerships wasn't helping.

But Fr Tony Kerin, episcopal vicar for justice and social service in the Archdiocese of Melbourne, said today's women wanted the best of both worlds.

Thank you for your interest Sister.  I agree on the roller coaster descriptions of emotions.  Foremost in his grief must be guilt on being the only one spared.  I hope he can find comfort in the months ahead.

I also wish to confirm that I continue to hold you and your pastoral works, as well as your family, in my prayers. 

All the angels are not in Heaven - there are many amongst us on earth.  I give thanks that we have our own Monkey Angel in these pages.

The prayers of the saints availeth much.  I am blessed to have yours.

Survivor's guilt is very real.  I have followed very closely the case of Dr. Pettit as his wife and daughters were murdered.  It was horrible.

Early this year it was announced he is engaged and I am so happy for him.  With Mr. Golinski's strong family, I pray he will recover emotionally as well as continue to recover physically.

A local zoo is going to be opening an Australia exhibit.  As soon as I know exactly what that means, I will let you know.

This morning when I signed on I was thinking of you and hoping all is well in your part of our beautiful world.

Looking forward to hearing about the Australian exhibit at your local zoo, Sister.  There are so many types of our marsupials and other wildlife so I hope they will have a good selection.

I read SM regularly just not always logged in as real life intrudes often, and sometimes there is not much news worth sharing and then it all seems to happen on the one day.

Have been following the Alison Baden Clay case and disappointed there has not been any arrests yet but as forensic reports are only due back about now I am sure the investigating police are getting all their ducks in a row and everyone is hoping for news of one or maybe two arrests.  Will post here when it all happens.

Hope all is well with you and family, as well as other monkey readers here.

Allison Baden-Clay's tragic murder captured the hearts of Queenslanders, says Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson

    by: Kris Crane
    From: The Courier-Mail
    May 18, 2012 12:00AM

ALLISON Baden-Clay was an innocent whose tragic story captured the hearts of Queenslanders, Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson said yesterday.

As police continue to scour for clues in the hunt for Mrs Baden-Clay's killer, the commissioner said her heartbreaking death had struck a chord with the public.

The 43-year-old mother-of-three was reported missing by her husband on April 20 after she left her Brookfield home for a walk and did not return.

Her body was found 10 days later on the banks of the Kholo Creek at Anstead.

"There are some crimes - Allison Baden-Clay, Daniel Morcombe, Sian Kingi and Anita Cobby in Sydney - that for whatever reason, grip the public's imagination," Mr Atkinson said.

"This is clearly a case with significant public interest."

Great-grandmother defiant in face of Family Court ruling on return of four girls to father


    by: Tuck Thompson, Kathleen Donaghey
    From: The Courier-Mail
    May 18, 2012 12:00AM

A GREAT-grandmother is expected to remain in hiding today and defy a Family Court order to disclose the whereabouts of four sisters on the run to avoid being forced to return to Italy.

The 70-year-old woman took the girls aged between nine and 14 into hiding rather than hand them over to child safety officers to resume a shared custody arrangement in Italy with their father.

The girls' grandmother, a resident of Victoria, said her mother was focused on the well-being of the children, who the grandmother said were unanimously opposed to leaving their mother, schools and mates.

"I don't see her turning them over. She loves those children and will do anything to protect them," she said.

Six police officers yesterday searched the grandmother's rural property in Victoria but did not find the girls. Although ill, she has agreed to tell the court what she knows about the girls' whereabouts by phone.

Children on long car trips - little monsters in the back seat

    by: Neil Keene
    From: The Daily Telegraph
    May 18, 2012 12:00AM

"ARE we there yet?"

If the answer isn't "yes" in 23 minutes or less, parents have got a screaming, squabbling problem on their hands.

That narrow window of time, according to a survey of thousands of motorists in Australia and overseas, is as long as most Aussie children aged two to eight will last on a car trip before they get bored and start to play up.

The survey, by GPS manufacturer TomTom, found Aussie kids had the shortest road trip fuses compared to every other nationality surveyed.

Children from the UK made it to 24 minutes, those from the US stretched their patience to half an hour and littlies from New Zealand lasted a relatively merciful 39 minutes before kicking up a stink. So why do Aussie children become a challenge so quickly?

Wiggles revamp prompted by public backlash over Sam Moran's axing


    by: Siobhan Duck
    From: The Courier-Mail
    May 18, 2012 12:00AM

THE aftermath of Sam Moran's axing has pushed The Wiggles founding members into early retirement.

A Wiggles insider says public outrage over the way former Yellow Wiggle Moran had been treated by the group had "sucked all the life out of it" for Jeff Fatt and Murray Cook.

The pair, along with Greg Page, who was brought back to replace Moran just four months ago, has stood aside to make way for new blood.

Though Page's return was only ever intended to be an interim measure, his second exit from the group was expedited by his ongoing health problems and the retirement of Fatt and Cook.

The insider said the group was rocked by the public scrutiny and ill-will they faced when Moran was dumped over a pay dispute in January.

 ::snipping2::

One has to wonder how these four will survive now without their $40 million plus yearly income made from prancing about on stage singing and dancing.

Good day to you!
Everything is going well and I thank you so much for your prayers.
Don't know if you had read that Zahra Baker's playground is going to be dedicated this Saturday.

Will keep you posted about the animals coming here.  It is very exciting.  We have a small zoo, but it is run so well and is very popular in our little region.

Police continue inquiry into Allison Baden-Clay's murder despite having suspect

    by: Brooke Baskin
    From: The Courier-Mail
    May 21, 2012 12:00AM

POLICE are still interviewing friends and family of Allison and Gerard Baden-Clay in their quest to solve the murder of the Brookfield mother of three.

A month after she disappeared, police have made it clear they have a suspect, possibly more than one, but yesterday continued to run out numerous leads as they worked to solve the case.

They have also confirmed they believe Mrs Baden-Clay was killed by someone she knew.

But a police spokesman yesterday declined to comment on whether toxicology results from Mrs Baden-Clay would be able to confirm a definitive cause of death.

 ::snipping2::

I would love to see the results of a public vote taken on who everyone thinks is the suspect/s.

Great Barrier Reef escapes oil disaster by metres as ID Integrity breaks down

    by: Brian Williams
    From: The Courier-Mail
    May 21, 2012 12:00AM

THE Great Barrier Reef was just metres from a major oil spill when an out-of-control 26,070 tonne bulk sugar carrier was blown over Shark Reef, northeast of Cooktown.

Crew frantically dumped ballast from the ID Integrity, which draws 7.1m, to reduce its draft as much as possible as it drifted across the reef on Saturday night.

Shark Reef depths range from 15m to 8m.

By sheer luck, the 186m Hong Kong ship with its broken-down engine managed to miss the outstanding Osprey Reef only 15km north, which is a high-end tourist destination for wealthy sightseers and divers.

The near miss occurred after the ship's engine failed on Friday and has prompted calls for a major review of Reef shipping regulations and for Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke to place a moratorium on port development.

Three tugs raced to the Integrity, with the first getting a line aboard just before noon yesterday. Tugs were last night coaxing the ship southeast and away from a collision with the World Heritage-listed Reef. A decision is yet to be taken as to where it will go for repairs

Daniel Morcombe's brother Dean hits note for child safety campaign

    by: Kristin Shorten
    From: The Courier-Mail
    May 21, 2012 12:00AM

DEAN Morcombe usually shuns the limelight but the bass guitarist's band, Holistic, will take centre stage at the Queensland launch of his parent's latest child-safety initiative.

Bruce and Denise Morcombe have created a new event, Family Day Out - Keeping Kids Safe, to be launched at Kings Beach in Caloundra on October 1.

The child safety crusaders aim to build the event into the most educational and entertaining child protection and harm prevention awareness day in Australia.

Dean, 24, said his recently-formed heavy metal group was happy to support Family Day Out, inspired by his 13-year-old brother Daniel, who disappeared while waiting for a bus at Woombye in 2003.

District Court orders Tim and Jane Graham and NRMA Insurance pay Florence Agnes Welch $55,000 damages after Ms Welch slipped on a gumnut on their front steps

    From: The Courier-Mail
    May 21, 2012 12:30PM

A MARRIED couple and their insurer have been ordered to pay $55,000 in damages to an elderly relative after she slipped on a gumnut and fell on their front steps.

In the District Court, Florence Agnes Welch sued Tim and Jane Graham and NRMA Insurance Australia Limited for damages as a result of the fall, on November 27, 2006.

Judge Bill Everson said quantum had been agreed at $55,000, including a Medicare refund in the sum of $5736.00, and a PBS refund in the sum of $58.60.

He said it remained for him to determine liability and allegations of contributory negligence.

Judge Everson said Ms Welch was 76 at the time and was the aunt of Mrs Graham.

He said the Grahams had purchased the house a few months earlier and Ms Welch was a regular visitor at the house assisting with babysitting duties.

Judge Everson said the house was in a bushland setting with, above the lower flight of steps, a relatively small tree which was referred to in evidence as the gumnut tree.

A branch of the tree dropped gumnuts which were generally cylindrical in shape, apparently hard and of a similar size to a car key for a late model Holden Commodore.

If the drop bears don't get you then the gumnuts will.

Redcliffe mourns the death of the Bee Gees' Robin Gibb

    by: Staff writers, Redcliffe & Bayside Herald
    From: Quest Newspapers
    May 21, 2012 11:52AM

The death of Robin Gibb means the world has lost a unique musician, the likes of which it is not likely to see again according to Redcliffe Bee Gees fan and Redcliffe Herald arts columnist Richard Lancaster.

Mr Lancaster said he was saddened by the news of Robin Gibb's death and said it was another tragic episode in the ``ongoing Bee Gees saga''.

The Gibb family lived on the Redcliffe Peninsula as children and signed their first music contract on the kitchen table of the house they were renting at Redcliffe.

``Robin Gibb was always a happy-go-lucky person as many Redcliffians who attended Scarborough State School with him and his twin Maurice would attest to,'' Mr Lancaster said.

``As kids, Barry and the twins had rigged up a rehearsal stage in their family's rented home in Redcliffe and they would charge locals pennies to attend their back yard improvised concerts.

Four sisters get High Court reprieve to stay in Australia until custody case is finalised

    by: Jasmine Lill, Kathleen Donaghey, Brooke Baskin and AAP
    From: The Courier-Mail
    May 22, 2012 5:13PM

THE four girls at the centre of a bitter international custody dispute will now remain in Australia until their latest court challenge is finalised.

Counsel for the girls, Tony Morris, successfully sought an undertaking in the High Court from the authorities that the children would remain in the country until the case is resolved.

Lawyers for the authorities initially refused to make the commitment citing the Hague Convention.

The girls are believed to be in the care of a relative after they were found on the Sunshine Coast last night.

Mr Morris said the central issue to the case was one of natural justice and procedural fairness, because the sisters had not been allowed legal representation in the Family Court.

That was despite lawyers for the director saying representation could only be made in exceptional circumstances.

The case is due to return to the High Court for a mention on Friday.

Earlier, The Courier-Mail reported that the four sisters who have been in hiding amid a bitter international custody dispute were found by police but the mother has no idea where they are.

 The great grandmother, who cannot be named, told AAP that police had raided a property on the Sunshine Coast Monday night and had taken the children.

``Someone has put us in, told the police,'' she told AAP.

``I am frozen. I am in shock. They've got the girls now and I don't know where they are.

``I'm shaking.''

Schapelle Corby may be released by August

    by: Mal Holland
    From: The Daily Telegraph
    May 22, 2012 6:06PM

SCHAPELLE Corby's pleas for clemency have been approved by the Indonesian government.

She may be freed from her Balinese prison cell as early as August.

thetelegraph.com.au understands a letter approving clemency was being delivered to Kerobokan Jail this afternoon.

It is understood Ms Corby is about to be told about the letter.

The letter says the Indonesian government has approved the slashing of five years off her sentence.

Sources told thetelegraph.com.au that if the five-year cut is added to previous remissions she could be freed by August.

thetelegraph.com.au understands Corby could be freed as soon as August if previous reductions to her sentence are taken into account and she is then eligible for parole.

However it would not mean Corby would be coming home to Australia.

Odd couple marches to a different bleat

    May 22, 2012 12:00AM

When Bullseye the goat and Mizzy the border collie were surrendered to the Wacol RSPCA last Monday, the night attendants did not expect a story of animal friendship to unravel.

The pair was given to the RSPCA this week by Jimboomba owners who could no longer afford to keep them.

The animals were separated into different sections, Mizzy with the dogs and Bullseye with the goats.

Later, heartfelt cries were heard from the two, particularly the goat who bleated hysterically.

It was only when the pair were reunited that they calmed down and staff realised they were inseparable companions.

I know Sister - what an odd couple but from that story totally devoted to each other.  I love stories like this.

And my heart breaks at stories of children being treated as possessions or something to barter with by adults.  Even tiny tots have emotions and feelings, and our society will never be civilised in my opinion until we can care for all the vulnerable folk in our communities.
