House prices are tipped to rise most.“Given the greater rise in the supply of units, unit prices are projected to show slower growth, averaging 0.8 per cent per annum to take the median unit price to $435,000 over the same period.”More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa10 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day agoReal Estate Institute of Queensland Gold Coast director John Newlands believed the predictions were possible given the number of people who were expected to move to the city during the three year period.“That’s basically where that’s all stemming from,” he said.“If that is the case … people are going to need places to stay and supply and demand is going to push prices up.”He tipped suburbs like Ashmore, Carrara, Burleigh Waters and Hope Island to become more popular as people started to consider them central locations instead of outer areas. Property prices on the Gold Coast are expected to soar in the next few years.IT was a rough start to the year for the Gold Coast property market but its future is looking bright, according to new research.QBE Insurance has this week released its Australian Housing Outlook 2019-2022 report, which predicted the city’s median house ($625,000) and apartment ($425,000) prices would increase in the next three years.The report attributed population growth, a steady supply of infrastructure projects and a strong tourism industry to the expected rises.“House price growth to 2022 is expected to remain positive, albeit at a slower rate than the previous upturn at an average rate of 2.9 per cent per annum,” the report said.“This will take the median house price to $680,000 by June 2022.

Tweet Share LocalNews Dominica observes Drug Awareness Week by: – November 21, 2011 Image via: tristat.comThe Drug Abuse Prevention Unit wants parents to take a more crucial role in the prevention of the use of drugs by minors.Drug awareness week is being observed in Dominica this week, under the theme “think health not drugs”.Head of the Drug Abuse Prevention Unit Jacinta Bannis is encouraging all schools to observe the celebration by participating in the various activities. “While all categories of drugs will be discussed, more focus will be placed on the danger associated with tobacco use. Schools are encouraged to incorporate the issue of substance use during assemblies, and in the teaching of subject…students are encouraged to write poems, create posters, perform short skits highlighting the dangers of drug use and abuse, they can always march around their schools and neighborhoods chanting slogans to send out their message against the dangers of drug use,” she said.Bannis said schools can also invite resource persons such as policemen, nurses, fire officers and other district officers to talk to students to help build their self esteem to refuse drugs.“Officers will be visiting school but we will not be able to go to all the schools. We also want parents to engage their children in discussing the topic. They can look at various sites on the internet as well. We believe that everyday should be drug awareness day in other to fight the drug around us,” she said.According to Bannis, a survey is currently being conducted to determine the prevalence of drug use in Dominica’s schools.She said the prevalence of drugs is high especially among the secondary schools on the island.Dominica Vibes News
Patrick Timm is a local weather specialist. His column appears Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Reach him at http://patricktimm.com. OK before we start talking weather, let’s review some rainfall from your friends and neighbors for November.Claudia Chiasson, Carson, 7.24 inches; Rob Starr, Cougar, 12.02 inches; Robin Ruzek, Lake Shore, 3.26 inches; Dave Campbell, one mile west of Heisson, 3.58 inches; Larry Lebsack, Barberton, 3.85 inches; Phil Delany, above Dole Valley, 8.60 inches; Tyler Mode, Battle Ground, 3.75 inches; Judy Darke, Felida, 4.20 inches; Ellen Smart, Ridgefield, 3.50 inches; Matt Sloan, west Vancouver Heights, 1.91 inches; Bob Mode, Minnehaha, 3.07 inches; Jim Knoll, Five Corners, 3.70 inches; Murphy Dennis, Rawson Road near Clark Rifles, 6.41 inches; Irv St. Germain, Prune Hill, 4.31 inches; and Bill Sobolewski, Livingston Mountain, 6.49 inches. Our friend Roland Dersken in Vancouver, B.C., had 11.29 inches. The official rainfall for Vancouver USA was 2.37 inches, 3.54 inches below average.It was interesting to note that most weather observers had less rain than in October, while others had a little more. Most all were way below their averages for November. The heaviest amount, from Bob Starr in Cougar, was 12.02 inches but far less than his average of 20 inches. It appeared the bulk of November storms stayed to our north with Roland Dersken’s rainfall amount of over 11 inches in Vancouver, B.C. He said that may sound like a lot but it was only his 10th wettest in 45 years of weather observations.So far this month we are running at the same pace as October and November, with only 1.10 inches in the rain gauge here in Vancouver, which is 1.25 inches below average. We have more rain on the way the next week or so; hopefully we’ll end up with a more normal rainfall for the month.Snow will fall in the mountains but as we discussed earlier, the snow level will be going up and down much as it did on Monday, where it was snow then rain and back to snow at Timberline. The higher elevations should build snowpack while the pass elevations will build then melt. Farther north in the Cascades the snow is piling up heavier as we stay on the milder side of the storm track.
