Life in the country
Cr Cheryl Gaedtke thought about the content of this month’s media
release and what message she would like to deliver to her region’s
residents. It became very clear to Cr Gaedtke after attending the funeral
of a man bigger than life. Cr Gaedtke said she would like to take this
opportunity to offer her condolences to Mr Jack Hughes’s family. It was
here that Cr Gaedtke was reminded of the joys of living in a country
town and knowing so many of the people who live here. Whilst, she
acknowledged that nothing stays the same, she considered our lifestyle
further while reflecting on the calibre of this local identity, and a man
who was known as a real gentleman. Cr Gaedtke’s Mum, Melva Hubner
now 91, proudly talks about attending Mt Kilcoy State School with Mr
Hughes. Cr Gaedtke met people from the past, who shared stories of her
renowned Father, Ira Hubner, so many tales she has learned of since
his passing some 24 years ago. The stories just seem to go on forever,
and it is the envy of many, to acknowledge the days of gone by years,
with greater freedom of less rules and regulations. Reflecting on country
life of sunrises and sunsets, cattle, horses, family, mates, good times,
hard times and helping out a mate offered us all a reminder of days
gone by, and our exceptional country lifestyle. Cr Gaedtke’s message is
to remember the unique qualities and to overlook less unique qualities
of our fellow citizens, and she sees it to be an important ingredients of
social well-being.

Cr Bob Whalley, Cr Otis Ogg, Cr Dan Hall, Cr Graeme Lehmann, Cr Helen
Brieschke, Cr Sean Choat & Cr Cheryl Gaedtke getting out in the community

and getting to know you better.
