Dr Richard Tan is celebrating 50 years as a GP in the small town of Biloela this week.
I’ve got a farm where I now raise squab pigeons and fish.”Despite hitting the 50-year milestone this week, Dr Tan has no plans to retire.”While I’m in good health and I can still remember people’s names, I think I’ll keep going for a bit longer,” he said.That is welcome news to Ms KcKeown.”The community have been blessed to have had the continuing care of such a competent and knowledgeable and caring doctor,” she said. I don’t like traffic and built up areas. As rural locations across Australia struggle to attract new doctors, a GP in one small central Queensland town is celebrating a very special milestone.Born overseas, Dr Richard Tan first arrived in Biolela to work as a doctor in the 1960s.”It was a small town but it was very friendly,” Dr Tan said.”Being the only Chinaman in town, I didn’t notice any sort of racial discrimination at that time.”Biloela resident Marilyn McKeown was one of Dr Tan’s first patients when he opened up a surgery in the middle of town in 1968.”I was a very young and pregnant 17-year-old,” Ms McKeown said.”I [still] remember that feeling of confidence in him at that first appointment in 1968. I prefer my quiet existence in the small town.”You can’t help that some of your patients are your close friends as well, so that’s been quite rewarding.”

After 50 years in town, Dr Tan no longer does emergency calls out to the hospital. It was a very significant moment for me.”Dr Tan ended up delivering Ms McKeown’s baby and two more sons that followed, as well as countless other babies born in Biloela in the last 50 years.”Because I did obstetrics, I’ve seen a couple of generations of children grow up in that time,” he said.Doctor has delivered countless babiesDr Tan and his wife also had children of their own, which cemented their place in the town.”Once I settled into the practice and the children were growing up and going to school, we just stayed on,” he said.”I don’t like the big smoke. (ABC News)
Dr Tan stopped delivering babies last year, and no longer does night calls or emergency call-outs.”Life is pretty easy at the moment,” he said.”Over the years, I’ve had an interest in racing horses.

Yasi is believed to be between 60 and 80 years old. It was just amazing.”Ms Moloney said only one in 1,000 turtles reached the age of 30, when they started breeding, and Yasi herself had almost certainly been born on Fitzroy Island.”She’s got to be one of ours, because they always come back to the same area they hatched in to nest, so she’s definitely hatched here on the island and it’s her turn to come back and make the next generation,” she said.Yasi is the only turtle to nest on Fitzroy Island in recent years.”There used to be a lot more back in the 1980s, so we have seen a decrease, but we are hoping now with a bit more stability that we are going to get a few more adults coming back, especially with her new ones,” Ms Moloney said. Yasi the green sea turtle has made a long-awaited return to Fitzroy Island off Cairns, laying seven nests of eggs from which more than 700 baby turtles have hatched.Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre marine biologist Jen Moloney said Yasi was believed to be between 60 and 80 years old, and last came to nest on the island in 2011 just before Cyclone Yasi struck.”She made nine nests that year, 2011, but all but two were destroyed,” she said.The turtle was christened for the cyclone that destroyed her eggs, and scientists at Fitzroy Island had been hoping she would return ever since.”We’d been waiting for her a couple of seasons ago, and even last season thinking, oh maybe, maybe, but she never made an appearance,” Ms Moloney said.”We started worrying that something had happened to her, but then lo and behold, she just had a snooze year, decided to wait a little bit longer before she came back.”Yasi finally returned to the island late last year and dug seven nests in the same places she laid her eggs seven years ago.”Right at the end of November was when she made her first appearance, and then it was every one to two weeks after that she was popping up and digging another nest,” Ms Moloney said.While the scientists were not allowed to assist the hatchlings to the water, they fenced off the nests to ensure people did not disturb Yasi or trample her eggs.

Perfect conditions for hatchlingsMore than 700 hatchlings have since emerged and made a dash for the Great Barrier Reef.”Because it’s been awhile since the last time she came, there were no predators, there were no birds, the goannas didn’t even find the nest,” Ms Moloney said.”We were worried about that, but it was perfect, they just all hatched and made a beeline for the ocean.”We had the tree frogs chirping in the background, we had fireflies dancing around us, some of the nights the sky was just amazing.”It was just lit up with stars as far as you could see, and then to top it all off, just hatchlings racing down the beach around us.

“I’ve never done the walk myself, so I was lost, it was dark, the rain was coming in sideways,” Mr Funston said.”I was waist deep in water that was pouring down the mountain, so that part was a bit terrifying.”We had to travel over a couple of mountains and river crossings.”It was an adventure, put it that way, and then the dog decided to do the bolt.”

Rosy was found by a bystander the next bay over from where the family had been camping. “The kids were pretty upset, the wife she wasn’t happy at all — it was my fault apparently,” Mr Funston said.”I was worried about the dingoes more than anything, plus the dog had never been there before so she didn’t know which way to go. Craig Funston and Freda Tanner’s family and their dog Rosy had been camping at a bay 10 kilometres from Dingo Beach when they were alerted to news Cyclone Iris was expected to develop into a category three system.With their boat swamped by torrential rainwater, the family was left with no choice but to walk through rough terrain in a bid to find shelter from the storm.

“It was pretty damn bloody worrying.”Unfortunately, with conditions deteriorating, Mr Funston was left with no choice but to abandon the search.After a sleepless night, he headed back to the campsite on Wednesday morning and it was not long before the family then received the news they had been hoping for.”I got a message from some random guy saying ‘I found her’,” Mr Funston said.”He was on a jet ski the next bay over and spotted her on the beach.”Mr Funston said after enduring a category two system, lost in the dark, Rosy was very happy to see her family.”Tired, very sore, her back foot was all cut up from travelling around on the rocks or oyster shells,” he said.”We’ll never know what her adventure was.”I just know ours was full on.” Photo:
Rosy bolted during the storm and was found the next day with minor injuries.

Geoff Waters has lived in Kununoppin for 66 years and still volunteers for his local ambulance service.
A Western Australian farmer is being praised for his efforts in keeping a small town’s hospital running following a power loss during a freak storm over the Easter weekend.Geoff Waters, 66, has lived in Kununoppin, 260 kilometres north-east of Perth, his whole life.When the hospital’s emergency generator ran out of fuel on the weekend during a 48-hour power-cut, Mr Waters was the first to put his hand up to donate nearly 600 litres of diesel.Mr Waters said he helped out because that was what people in the country did.”I work on the theory that if we cannot help one another it is a waste of time being out here,” he said.Not only did Mr Waters keep the generator running, he also filled up two of the nurses’ cars with fuel to make sure they could get home and back the next day for their shifts.”It is something I like doing for the community, helping people out,” he said.”I just hope sometime when my family need those services, they are there for them.”Health emergency

The powerful Good Friday storm brought wind gusts of up to 113 kilometres per hour, causing 5,000 homes and businesses in the region to lose power.Kununoppin clinical nurse Nerida Woodfield said without Mr Waters’ help, they may have had to move their eight patients to other health facilities.She said medications and vaccines that needed to be refrigerated would have also gone off.”There’s a lot of medication that needs to be kept at a certain temperature,” she said.”If we were unable to do that they can be kept in eskis with ice bricks and monitoring for a certain amount of time.”A helping handMs Woodfield said the whole Kununoppin community generally liked to help one another, but Mr Waters was always the first to put his hand up.”He is reliable, you know he is there as a backup,” she said.”If one of the nurses has a flat tyre we always know who to call — it’s Geoff.”He also volunteers for the local St John Ambulance, transporting patients across the Wheatbelt.Ms Woodfield said they were very grateful for his work, especially given he had his own farm to look after.”He came and rechecked on us between moving sheep,” she said.”And then he was at the door asking whether he needed to refill the generator the next day.”

ALDIOUS – We Are

I cried one night
Crouching alone looking
like a pupa glowing
Hoping one day to
find something true
I keep on flying high
I won’t let you regret
何度だって蘇り 羽ばたいてみせる
(nando datutte yomigaeri habataite miseru)
We are
We are
We are
Burn it in those eyes‼︎
When you are lost
Let five soul colors guide
Light Your feet bright and
shows you all the way
何度だってつれていくよ 笑顔の先へ
(nando datutte tureteikuyo egao no sakie)
We are
We are
We are
Burn it in those eyes‼︎ I suffered one day.

ALDIOUS – Utopia

今開いた地図に目的地を指して
戸惑いうつむき
その場に立ち尽くしていたら
昔話を思い出す
「声に出したら叶います」
いっそ信じてみようと思い
こんな歌を歌うよ
太陽みたいに大きく 星空よりも輝く
本当はね そんな人にボクはなりたい
落雷よりも眩しく 雨音よりも優しく
今までは言えなかった
So I can say i want to be ideal myself。
ただ 願えば叶うわけじゃないけれど
1人で悩んでいてもつまらないと気付いたから
誰かの為に歌います
声に出せば伝わります
いっそ笑っていたいと思い
こんな歌を歌うよ
真夜中みたいに切なく
夜明けのように悲しく
『そんな日もあったね!』 といつか笑えるさ
恋のようにトキメク命のように儚く
今までは言えなかった
So I can say i want to be ideal myself。
風よりもさり気なく 海よりも誇らしく
本当はね?こんな事をいつも願ってる…
空のように果てなく
貴方のように愛しく
この世界に 生きる以上笑っていたいのだから
鳥のように羽ばたく
子供のように駆けてく
本当はね そんな人でボクはいたいの
夢のように煌めく
愛のように止め処無く
今までは言えなかった
So I can say i want to be ideal myself。

Tim Buckley – Sweet Surrender

Now you wanna know the reason
Why I cheated on you
Well I had to be a hunter again
This little man had to try
To make love feel new again
’cause there’s just a few things honey
I’m not old enough to do for you
You just never care to show me
Showed him how to tango
And when they tangoed it’d send their hearts a flutter
Young and tender
Seemed to surrender in so sweet surrender
In sweet surrender
Ahh sweet surrender to love
But now you’re gonna go out and get yourself
A reputation
But I’m gonna have to show you where to start
And then you’re gonna bring back your little reputation
And prove to me what I could not prove to you

John Lee Hooker – Blues Before Sunrise

I have the blues before sunrise, tears standing in my eyes
I have the blues before sunrise, tears standing in my eyes
It was a miserable feeling, now babe, a feeling I do despise
I have to leave, leave you baby, because you know you done me wrong
I have to leave you baby, because you know you done me wrong
I’m gonna pack up and leave you darling and break up my happy home
I have to leave, leave you baby, I’m gonna leave you all alone
I’m gonna leave you baby, I’m gonna leave you all alone
I’m gonna pack up and leav you darling, because you know you done me wrong
Well now goodbye, goodbye baby, I’ll see you on some rainy day
Well now goodbye baby, I’ll see you on some rainy day
You can go ahead now little darling, ’cause I want you to have your way

Tom Waits – Silent Night

Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in Heavenly peace
Sleep in Heavenly peace
Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from Heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Hallelujah
Christ, the Savior is born
Christ, the Savior is born
Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from thy Holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth

Even though I haven’t made it yet
I’m dragging it, dropping it in my mind

You’re a drive real slow, down a no lane road
To a house on a hill where the wild things grow
You’re wake up in pajamas, not a trace of makeup on ya

From my teachers to my preacher
My little crowd pleaser
Parading with you feeling homecoming cool, yeah

君への想いはso many to let go
unpuzzle my lego
元の形に戻れないlevel

I’ma let you go and fly
忙しなくする日々
keeping myself busy
紛らわすため埋め込んだschedule

それでも行くしかねーんだ
俺が愛し過ぎた人
絡み過ぎて絡みあった糸
解けなくなって別の道を歩む
そのためにI’ll say goodbye

雨の中隠した涙の先に
待ってるやり直そう
また未来で笑顔で
会えるように
今君の手を
離せるように
I gotta let you know
that I need to let you go
Hard to say goodbye
でも逃げない

U-God – Epicenter (feat. Raekwon, Inspectah Deck & Scotty Wotty)

[Intro: movie samples, Inspectah Deck]
I call this the wild style
It’s inherited from Wu Mei
The Huang style founder
Hahahahaha, what else have you got? Wu-Tang
INS your highness
Golden Arms
[Verse 1: U-God]
The booth with the ground wire
Where I control my empire, thugs call me sire
To roam my kingdom, you must spit fire
Bars of fifty, what the crown requires
A few good men stand up, motivated to do shit
They know how to file the blueprint
You getting this exclusive
Stamped and packaged for your personal usage
A shot of this is ruthless
Inmates salute this, young kids root for this
The whole world waits upon a Goldie exclusive
I stay secluded and think about the process
Stay submerged, similar to Loch Ness
Surface when the time is right, or my soldier night
Rebel music, Geto Boys in the spotlight
Keep everything in hindsight, living the lime life
Sharp on a [?], just keeping my mind right
And watch what you say around a chick
She spread last through the click like Ebola on the tip
Atop of the highest mountain, the epicenter of rap
They yell, "Wu forever across the map"
[Verse 2: Inspectah Deck]
No question, your dude is live
I line ’em up like the song sell two for five
It’s all love, you can hate, you can scrutinize
Fuck with me, boy, that’s suicide, foolish pride
I spent every form of cash, bagged mad exotic hotties
Like I just became a made man, how they mob me
Started from the lobby, Rebel get it shaking like the dice hand
Flying a rag, no flight plan
Overtime with the grind ’cause I’m working late
Murder on the first tape, first 48
Hotter than Hell’s Kitchen
I lay my head where the shells ripping
Mama knew I was a threat so she named me Jason
Take your pick, either Bourne, Voorhees, or Statham
My flag waving
Atop of the highest mountain, the epicenter of rap
They yell, "Wu forever" across the map
[Verse 3: Scotty Wotty]
Slick down bread was spread, it’s in the envelope
36 pounds of shit under the microscope
They knew my horoscope, they know I’m lactose
They know I bust the sheet, slam out the cantaloupe
They had the periscope slammed down my tonsils
They tried to hit me with some decoyed sponsor
I’m in the market every time I spark it
I live to [?] with the concrete carpet
I was in Rikers when you was in diapers
Run the guards from the circle and created a cypher
I grew ’em up, we elevated to the tour bus
Masculine, adrenaline
Running through your veins like dope in a tenement
Where I became a resident
Hooked up with the God and we became venomous
Atop of the highest mountain, the epicenter of rap
They yell, "Wu forever" across the map
[Verse 4: Raekwon]
New Bentayga with 50 keys
Driving off the road Narco style, they caught me in Belize
Fingerprints burned, Asics on
Made a u-turn, pulled at the weed spot
Glock on me, new rock on me
Maybach beige [?] Nikehead
Tracksuit got special powers, these guns carry dollars
Mutilating chumps by the lumpsum
Jump if you want something
I be in the front with the pumps company
Yeah, yeah, them niggas with fresh kicks
Caught up in the mix, stress quick then we dress whips
All the hoes give ’em the best tips
We floating the best ships, throw your ass over like dead fish
Yeah, for real, it’s all hood Bible shit
Mike Tysonal, all us on our tribal shit
Atop of the highest mountain, the epicenter of rap
They yell, "Wu forever" across the map
