The Palaszczuk Government’s plan for water? Pray for Rain!!!
 
The State Government hasn’t built a dam in a generation, they are light on water policy and heavy on politics.
 
In less than 20 years Queensland will need a dam the size of Wivenhoe to keep up with population growth.
 
When asked about the water plan today, the Minister said their plan is to pray for rain.
 
This State Government cannot be trusted when it comes to water security.
 
This isn’t the first time the State Government have missed the mark on drought-proofing Queensland.
 
It is history repeating itself.
 
Their lack of planning has resulted in rushed water infrastructure with poor designs and hefty price tags and Queenslanders will have to foot the bill.
 
When government’s fail to plan they fail to protect Queensland lifestyle.
 
Queenslanders deserve better than a government with a culture of poor priorities and waste.

This week is National Stroke Week and I took the opportunity to call into the South Burnett Stroke Support Group Meeting.

A passionate group of people supporting and promoting stroke awareness.

Did you know there is one stroke every 19 minutes in Australia, but the good news is that 80% of strokes are preventable.

The most common signs of stroke are outlined as part of the F.A.S.T message –
• drooping Face
• inability to lift your Arms
• slurred Speech.
• Time is then critical – call triple zero (000) immediately

Following on from my health crisis meeting yesterday I took Shadow Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Ros Bates MP with me for a tour of the Kingaroy Hospital.

Thank you to the Hospital staff and Darling Downs Health representatives for your time.

There is no doubt the Hospital is a beautiful new building that our community needed and deserved. However, I will continue to advocate for more staff and improved services.

The South Burnett deserves this.

Thank you to the 200 people who attended this morning's health crisis meeting with David Crisafulli MP and Ros Bates MP.
Thank you also to the many people who could not attend but have emailed and phoned to tell me their story.
We are committed to supporting this community and backing their fight for better healthcare services.

Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends. We ask that everyone please respect the family’s privacy during this very difficult time.

Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer.  Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund (ONJFoundationFund.org).

Olivia is survived by her husband John Easterling; daughter Chloe Lattanzi; sister Sarah Newton-John; brother Toby Newton-John; nieces and nephews Tottie, Fiona and Brett Goldsmith; Emerson, Charlie, Zac, Jeremy, Randall, and Pierz Newton-John; Jude Newton-Stock, Layla Lee; Kira and Tasha Edelstein; and Brin and Valerie Hall.
