THERE are many truly remarkable people in the South Burnett.

What is something you resent paying for?

Probably tax or my ex-wife's two cars.

What's the best advice you ever received?

Be good to your mum.

I probably didn't do it as much as I should have.

I love to drive. I spend a lot time in machinery.

What is one thing you would struggle to quit?


I saw it happen to my dad, as soon as they stop they keel over.

I would have listen more in school so my job prospects would have been better.

I would have liked to have been an engineer or got into interstate politics.

What is the worst injury you've had and how did it happen?

I broke the same leg twice within nine weeks.

I fell down a hole and I kept working, my wife said, 'quit your whining or go to the doctor.'

Then I slipped in thongs and re-broke it.

What would your friends say is your worst habit?

Probably telling stories, they get a little bit long-winded

What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?

We have a lot of volunteers helping out in general so it is hard to pin-point one thing.

And my wife for putting up with all my crap.

Legalising euthanasia.

I have seen the effects of end of life with my mum and dad and they had to suffer it until the end.

I would sit down and talk to Rowena and the kids.
