if you build an organization of people just looking for a way to make money, they will only stick around long enough to collect a check If you want to build a long-term organization, you need people committed to your product as well as your opportunity Notice-ability - The marketplace is crowded with ads for making money If you go on Craigs List, you'll see page after page of income opportunities, and it doesn't take long before they all blend together By advertising the benefits of your product or service first, you stand ahead of the crowd that is all fighting for the title of the "best" income opportunity. jordan 11 bred There are vanity phone number resellers online that actually specialize in providing 800 numbers with matching domain name for those seeking the consistent branding for their business Clearly this is simply a marketing ploy by savvy 800 number vendors, as those domains may be full of hyphens and may cost more than they should due to the perception of value-added An interesting aspect to toll free numbers as domain names is that of 1-800 copyright and trademarks Take for example, the well known flower retailer 1-800-FLOWERS dunk heels 98bn online during the period, compared with 锟?3bn for the same time a year earlierOnline shoppers need great customer service as they can easily click on to another retailer who serves them better Some of the companies charge you drop shipping fees to deliver the product so you will obviously want to find one that does not charge these feesIf you do a Google search for drop shippers the first couple of pages pull up a bunch of sites that offer many of the same products for similar prices In some case the products they offer are pretty close to regular retail prices on the internet So, how do you find the right drop shipping company In my search to answer this question I found a site that has done all the research for you: , reputable drop shippers to its visitors I bought the plan for $69. lebron 9 cheap But first, like all MLM companies, there are products you need to purchaseThe items an unfranchise owner can buy to get cash back are marked with a Cashback logo and work like reward programs in that you buy, but you receive a percentage back Once you reach a payout amount, you can request it be sent to you You also earn by getting others to work under you and recruit or list you as a referral when they choose to sign up and shop at the marketamericacom website barkley shoes Isnt it worth investing!Opportunities are bagful on Internet It is often seen that a brands associates / affiliates rank higher than the brand itself This is all because they bagged the first opportunity and held to SEO bandwagon long before the Brand realized SEOs importance Result has been phenomenonal business through Internet All thanks to Search Engine Optimization!Businesses spend on email marketing, online banner advertising, paid search engine listings and others to reach exponentially growing Internet users.

This mine is absolutely crazy. I bought a property in Sandy Creek some years ago so that my children and hopefully my grandchildren will have some unspoiled nature to enjoy. Why do people enjoy move away from the city? Mostly to get away from noise, trucks, lights at night that spoil views of the stars etc. This is exactly what such a mine will bring with it.

I thought Stradbroke Island had mountains of sand to exploit. Why distribute such exploitation to our backyards!

... Somerset Region (Sandy Creek locality) 2012-04-30 16:35:54

The remarkable visual amenity of Sandy Creek, like much of the region, is more than the private delight of those of us who live there. It is the raw material of any future tourism industry. If we permit the expansion of in-stream or near-stream extractive industry in the omerset Region, we will destroy any chance of success for a more environmentally compatable alternative industry

I was looking at buying a property on Sandy Creek Road and enjoying a peaceful retirement there. Maybe not now I see what is coming.  I feel for the poor people who are near neighbours to this inappropriate development.  Is all of Qld a minesite?  Will have to go somewhere more remote to avoid this find of rampant development.

People live in Rural areas because they want the Quieter more Peacefull lifestyle, not to have this destroyed by noisy Trucks creating Dust and Dirt and exhaust polluction and damage to the roads and environment and not to have the Creek and underground Water Aquifers destroyed by this Mining Proposal.  Trucks using a road that was built to handle Local Traffic only will endanger every person driving on this road and the Children waiting on the roadside for the School bus will be put in a dangerous situation every day trying to get on and off the bus and crossing the road to get home.

This pristine valley belongs to the residents. Noise from the mine would radiate through the entire valley, mostly in the early morning...6am start for the mine???? Does the council really want a sand mine in the middle of a growing residential area. I was looking at buying on Sandy creek road and bring ing a young family to the area, but with the mining development application submitted, I am seriously thinking twice about investing in the area.

The council promotes a' “Natural Somerset” as a key principle, where the region is “a place where the natural environment and rural lifestyle are valued and protected”, and an area which is “scenic, rural, clean and relaxed”.' With the recent coal seam resolution passed, why would sand mining be any different?

... kilcoy 2012-02-24 01:29:53

There is no place in our small country town, for such a quarry. we do not have the roads to cope. we do not want our drinking water contaminated either.

... kilcoy 2012-02-24 01:28:28

I don't think this is the place for the trucks and traffic that a quarry will bring. You only have to look at Bracalba and see the damage to the roads and the traffic. If the D'Aguilar highway can't cope then our little roads sure won't.

Disastrous for the environment and quiet family life.  Trucks speeding down the road will be unacceptable for safe environment for ourselves and our children

... sandy creek 2012-01-19 23:54:47

We moved here 4 years ago to raise our children in a quiet and above all, safe community.  Now we have to contend with a constant flow of truck and dogs ploughing down a quiet country road not equipped to handle heavy loads.  If this mine goes ahead it will only be a matter of time before someone's loved one is seriously injured or killed.  I'm afraid to say we won't be sticking around to watch it happen- we will move on elsewhere.

Profit over the safety and wellbeing of a community? SHAME ON YOU MR ALZINO!!!!




... sandy creek 2012-01-19 22:01:06

... Sandy Creek 2012-01-17 22:19:02

We came here for a quiet country lifestyle- I love that I can hear nothing but the birds most days.  We want to raise our children in a safe environment.  The roads are so inadequate for trucks, and I fear for the safety of sharing Mary Smokes and Sandy Creek Roads with trucks.  We are all on tank water and that dust will be sliding straight into our tanks from our roofs.  What about the environmental impacts on Sandy Creek itself?  Somerset Dam is just over the hill and what type of run off will be in that catchment?  

                                                    NO! NO! NO! TO THE MINE!!

... Sandy Creek 2012-01-16 19:26:27

Why are they doing this to our little part of the world, who is going to have to tell some-one their loved one is not coming home because they came face to face with  gravel truck. A lot of these truck drivers are cowboys and get paid by the load so of course they will be doing 100kph along Sandy Creek/Mary Smokes Roads. What happens when we have got all the dust on our roofs and it goes into our drinking water will MR ALZINO pay for our drinking water OF COURSE NOT his water is ok. My husband walks the dogs along the road and I don't want ayone coming to tell me he is not coming home, come on council show your balls and say bloody well NO. We have spent 20 years getting all the native birds to come around here and we enjoy them, we won't see them for long if the mine goes ahead along with a lot of other local wildlife.

I am all for this town moving forward. But for an idiotic mining company to want to put a sand mine at the end of my road that will be nothing but disastrous. This project will generate the whole of 2 jobs to the community. Which means nobody will be looking for real estate, so unlike other mines this one will not help the Real Estate economy. This isn't just a couple of year thing either. Its 30 years, 6am-6pm if having hundreds of trucks roaring passed my place 365 days a year. I don't think anyone realises how much this sand mine at sandy creek will fuck everything up. Not to mention if we were to have another flood remotely anything like the one in January this would be multiplied because of the mine and could be tragic. So people please explain how this will benefit the town?

... Sandy Creek 2011-12-16 06:12:24

I do not want this sand mine to go ahead,  we moved here for the lifestyle and beauty the area has to offer. We want to bring our kids up in the country, with clean fresh air and the opportunity to ride along the roads, if this goes ahead you are taking our new found quality of life away from us and all the residents around us. The safety on our roads is another major concern for me, I note today that the speed limit on parts of the d'aguilar hwy has been reduced to 90 kph, I can only presume this is to try and reduce the amount of fatalities seen on this road, what will a proposed extra truck and dog every 15 or so minutes do to the safety and condition of our roads.

The 10 kms of road from the proposed extraction site along Sandy CK / Mary Smokes Creek rd to D'aguilar Hwy, is maintained by local council. The recent floods destroyed much of the road - and was repaired at considerable cost, time and whilst necessary in this case, disruption to residents and visitors. However less than a year later, with the current traffic load,  the road has already deteriorated badly. This road simply cannot support  60 or so tonne loaded trucks with100+ movements per day, 312  out of 365 days a year for 15- 20 years! Who would pay for local road maintenance should this extraction proposal be approved?- Somerset ratepayers!-Have a really good think of the potential damage, costs and disruption should this be approved. Our rates would have to rise to accommodate it- I don't want and can't afford, an extra financial burden to pay for the consequences of something that has no positive benefit to the environment and our community. Whilst Alzinos would pay an amount as all road users do, there is no way it would cover the damage that these trucks would do.

This is in addition of course, to the most important issues of irreparable damage that this mine would have on the environment, the surrounding farms and the safety and wellbeing of residents and visitors.

I truly hope council places the wellbeing of its constituents and the preservation of this precious part of the region before the profit of one man.

M... Stoney Creek/Marysmokes Creek 2011-12-15 04:50:37

The environment needs protection not more destruction.

The D'Aguilar Highway is already a very dangerous road without the addition of dozens more heavy vehicles per day.

This developement would ruin forever our neighbourhood and the existing flora and fauna,and MUST be stopped.

I was born in Kilcoy 46 years ago but for the past six years living else where.  When I was very young remembering our Sunday drives to Mt Kilcoy and Sandy Creek area.  Knowing even back then that the few scattered farms and beautiful creeks were always there for a purpose.  Erecting a sandmine in this rich fertile grazing land will not only be disastorous for the environment and will have an ill effect on the water supply for Kilcoy through to Brisbane. 

The creek life from the sand mine down will be interfered with. Not mentioning the roads out in this lovely area, who will repair the roads from the trucks that will be passing by every few minutes or so?  There are not only the locals that live there that commute to work  daily, but also the local school but that use this quiet country road twice daily.  They don't need the noise and distruction in this pristine rural area.  Please DERM  and council you should consider this and look closley at the facts.

... Woodgate 2011-12-15 02:40:04

Having lived in the Mount Kilcoy area for approx 35 years and being a 4th generation farmer, I know that having a sandmine would be detremental to this A grade agricultural land with very fertile flats, not only to the land but also to the creek that it will would be filtered into.  As a water treatment plant operator I know having a mine would be detremental to all water drinking water supplies from Kilcoy to Brisbane.

 I lived in the Mt Kilcoy area for twelve years. I was an executive on the Kilcoy Chamber of Commerce and Community Assoc, The Somerset Valley Grape and Wine Producers Assoc and the Kicoy Tourism Network. a network of Fram Stay, B&B, Cellar Door and Wineries.  I find the proposal of a sand mining project to be located at Sandy Creek almost beyond comprehension.  Recent Kilcoy Councils spent considerable time and effort on working with the Qld Govt to establish a Tourism Strategy. A sound sensible strategy for maintaining the unspoiled environment of the Region as witnesed by the D'Aguilar Biosphere initative. 

The Council has encourgaed the development of lifestyle lots which bring new residents and ultimately greater prosperity to the region.  I find it difficult to believe that sand mining will achieve much other than to discourage people to live in the area.

The resulting high heavy traffic volume alone will lead to unsafer roads and increased costs.

Frankly the approval of the proposed mine defies commonsense.

Yes it sunk into the tarmac a little suzuki what a truck would do god only knows .I cannot see one benifit  this sand mine would make !! CAN YOU ???

... sandy ck. 2011-12-14 02:43:45

I believe this mine is the thin edge of the wedge for other developments around the area. If it goes ahead, expect many more industrial plants popping up in the area, with the excuse that "they already exist so it's not pristine".

The natural values & lifestyle choice people have made along our valley NEEDS to be RESPECTED by those who have a bright / not-so-bright money-making idea.

Even if it has been approved in the past, it lapsed & PEOPLE have moved in, excluding industrial use thereafter.The proponent cannot expect 2 bites at the cherry.

Move on & be satisfied with the money you already have. We will be satisfied with nothing less that the rejection / failure of your proposed development.

We do not want or need this extractive industry in our area. The disruption to our quiet country lifestyle posed by this proposal is set to destroy why we live here and whywe wish to continue to live here. The country roads in this area have not been constructed to withstand the extra heavy haulage vehicles that would be using them. An inspection of the present conditions of Sandy Creek Road and Mary Smokes Creek Road from the proposed mine site to the D'Aguilar Highway will clearly show that these roads cannot withstand the extra loading.

... Shapland Drive 2011-12-13 13:48:19

... SAndy Creek 2011-12-13 06:55:59

This is not the remote dairy farming area it used to be:
  • The proposed quarry is only a few hundred metres from many residential acreage homes.
  • This is a dangerous proposal; the trucks would be seriously endangering our children and the couples who ride and walk along the road, along with School bus and KCC bus for the elderly. The roads are not wide enough and there is no walking path.
  • What about the creek? Is the creek water going to soak through the sand into your pit? If the water table is lowered, is the creek even going to flow? I suspect these are closely related!
  • My front verandah view is straight down to the proposed pit; with the prevailing SE wind set to blow the dust straight into my home. I get asthma. I have no-where else to go! The valley is a sound bowl, and the reversing warning sound of machinery alone, starting at 6am, 6 days a week, including on my days off , a few hundred metres away, is immoral and a grave injustice.
  • Mr Alzino, for you it is more money to add to your wealth. For me, the peace of my home and the quiet of this valley is all I have, and you plan to take this away too. Merry Christmas to you too!!!
  •  If this goes ahead, others are waiting to apply for the same thing I believe. This will grow.
  • This by extension seriously affects people not only adjacent to the property, but the School communities, those affected by accidents which WILL occur, the camping aesthetic and pushbike riding appeal in the area, and related businesses, Kilcoy residents (will a quarry then go in next to Kilcoy Creek, beside their water supply? There is a lot of sand there!)
  • Then there is the wildlife, water quality, ground water issues, silicone dust and the chemicals used.
  • this is not an essential resource at this location. Dig a hole where it is not going to destroy lives!

 When we bought here, we bought a lifestyle away from the city and the noise. The thought of a sand mine so close to our property is very distressing. This is a rural residential area. Families live here. The constant movement of trucks along our country roads is a great safety concern, as not only vehicles, but children going to school, walkers, cyclists also use the roads.

Our water table is precious and the environmental damage would be irrepairable in the forseeable future.

Please show common sense and compassion and STOP THE MINE FROM GOING AHEAD.

Please NO sand and gravel extraction at Sandy creek, this area was promoted as rural residential when we purchased it. This heavy industrial proposal will shatter the peace, land and water quality of the area, not to mention road safety for the pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders on the narrow Marysmokes creek road. The safety and wellbeing of Somerset residents must come before money. Although an approval was made approx thirteen years ago, this does not mean it is the right decision today, especially with the growth of residents over that time.

... Sandy Creek, Kilcoy, Queensland 2011-12-13 02:02:41

This sand and gravel extractive industry is not an essential resource, and is readily available in other locations.  It will reduce agricultural land, and because of the use of chemicals in the processing may compromise Sandy Creek, the water table, and possibly the Brisbane water supply.  The release of dust and possible silica into the atmosphere will create health hazards for nearby residents.  Water for the processing from the creek or water table will reduce available water for residents and farm animals.   I request this development be prevented.

... Kilcoy 2011-12-13 02:00:12

It's shocking that our state and local governments would consider allowing a sand mine on one of south-east Queensland's most pristine water courses in a highly settled area like Sandy Creek. The really alarming thing is the precedent it would set for so many other places.

I am extremely concerned about the impact this mine could have on the community and surrounding communities. Sandy Creek is a beautiful rural & residential area. If this mine goes ahead it has the potential to have detrimental environmental impacts along with potential health impacts for residents and visitors to the area.

The traffic accidents that already occur on the D'Aguilar Highway have been highlighted by the media recently. This mine with all the associated trucks will raise the risk level even further. This is extremely worrying to me as person who drives the D'Agulair Highway regularly along with my family.



... 2011-12-04 19:04:07

 I am extremely concerned not only about the potential detrimental environmental impacts on our water, air, wildlife and landscape, but particularly the volume of truck activity on the access roads and the D'Aguilar Highway. I have a school age daughter who uses one of the local school buses. My fear is that the school buses and the students they transport along the school bus routes of Sandy Creek Road, Mary Smokes Creek Road and beyond to Sandy Creek and Mount Kilcoy will encounter an unacceptable level of danger due to the sheer numbers and speed of the trucks and also the condition of these roads. In brief.
