Coast washing halts export of local seafood MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week up to 200 jobs could be at risk because there was a problem with export seafood washed with Capricorn Coast water. The Federal Department of Primary Industry has suspended exports from the Coast. Mr Hinton said the 200 jobs were at risk in the export seafood industry with the loss of local seafood markets to the Capricorn Coast fishing fleet. He said it was a serious problem for the industry but he assured the public the problem did not infer there was any public health risk with use of the water. Mr Hinton said sediment in the water was creating problems for the seafood industry, just as it had created nuisance to the public for many years. "However, it only emphasised the need for a new water filtration plant, now being planned by the Livingstone Shire Council and for which $1 million subsidy has been promised by the State Government, and on which negotiations - with the council are proceeding," Mr Hinton said. The threat to the seafood export industry and families dependent on it, was of enormous concern in Yeppoon. He said he was informed that some seafoods now held will be assessed again by the Department of Primary Industry after being held for the past two weeks. Mr Hinton said it was significant that the water passes all health tests in Australia, but cannot meet specifications imposed by importing countries. "It is vital that this problem be quickly resolved and that the Coast gets an improved water supply through the installation of a water filtration plant," he said.

Bowen to tell Joh council will pay only $2.5m for clean water I I

Premier gave pre-election promise that council need pay no more!

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council chairman Cr John Bowen will tell Premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen that ratepayers can contribute $2.5 million toward a water filtration and quality control plant ... and he expects the remaining $2 million cost to come from the State Government. He will soon see the Premier at a meeting now being arranged by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. Cr Bowen, as part of his case, will be reminding the Premier of an address he gave to councillors late last year during which he said he would be giving the council $1 million toward the proposed water works. That $1 million, together with the 30 per cent subsidy available for such works to all councils


throughout Queensland, will bring down Livingstone Shire contribution to $2.5 million. Backing up Cr Bowen's points will be a copy of the November 1, 1986, Capricorn Coast Mirror, which carried the transcript of an interview with the Premier. During the interview, Sir Joh was asked "can you make a commitment on improving the water supply to the area?" Sir Joh,' who was being interviewed by the Mirror and an ABC reporter only minutes after addressing councillors, replied: "Yes, as a matter of fact I did. That was another thing. I did say to them (the councillors) that your scheme is going to cost $4.85 million, nearly $5 million, I said we could easily get a

million off that, my engineers tell me in Brisbane and that will bring it down, and we will give you $1,155,000 which will leave $2.5 million for council to pay. They (the councillors) said: 'We'll grab that with both hands.' I said we will give a 30 per cent subsidy on it, and they (the councillors) said `great, tremendous'. So, I've played my part there." That answer was part of the complete transcript. Sir Joh had visited Yeppoon to support National Party candidate Denis Hinton in the run-up to the November State election. (A number of councillors spoke to the Mirror after the transcript was published.

YEPPOON MAN HEADS CHURCH SAFETY HOUSE YEPPOON resident Lewis Shobbrook is the new branch president of the Rockhampton second branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He became branch president recently at the bi annual district conference held in Rockhampton. Mr Shobbrood a 48 year old school teacher, is no stranger to church administration. He has had extensive experience in leadership positions over the 24 years he has been a member of the Mormon Church. Members from Mackay, Rockhampton and Gladstone, listened to mission president Robert G West, as he told the congregation it was a time of 'new beginnings' and many challenges. As the new branch president, Mr Shbbrook's life will revolve even more closely round the church than in the past. His free time will be devoted to serving the branch members, while continuing his job as teacher at the Yeppoon High School, President Shobbrook said:"Because the church functions without paid clergy, I will continue in the Education Department. Church members are closely involved in its administration and I will be assisted by two counsellors in caring for the spiritual and temporal needs of the members." Mr Shobbrook said there were two challenges coming from his new position that stood out; the first was the distance between his home in Yeppoon and his congregation in Rockhampton. The second was the need to increase membership. "I look forward to the time when membership is such that a branch can be established here in Yeppoon," he said.

Mr Hinton said such costs were normally the council's responsibility, but as the road upgrading was part of the Iwasaki franchise agreement, it was reasonable for council to expect government assistance.

There are presently 78 houses listed as places of refuge for children on their way to and from school. "People who are at home or in their businesses between 8am and 9am and 3pm and 4pm are ideal to be 'safety houses'." Guest speaker at the annual meeting is Rockhampton Police Liaison Officer Constable Donna Hayes. The meeting will be at Sacred Heart School, John Street, Yeppoon at 7.30pm on Tuesday, March 3.

o CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 They remarked that it was exactly what the Premier had told them in his address. The address was held in committee and could not be reported.) Cr Bowen said this week there appeared to be some confusion about the amount of money council was going to receive from the State Government toward the cost of cleaning up the Coast's water supply. "There really is no need for confusion," he said on Wednesday. "The Premier told council, and the Mirror, the water filtration and quality control plant was going to cost ratepayers $2.5 million. "He was going to give us $1 million toward the overall cost. In addition, we would get a 30 per cent subsidy on the overall cost. "That subsidy is available to all councils in Queensland. There was no special offer in that. That subsidy is automatic. There was no need for the Premier to fly up here and tell us something as basic as that." Mr Hinton will also be armed with a copy of the November 1 Mirror. He phoned from Brisbane on Wednesday afternoon asking for the relevant section to be read to him. He also asked for a copy to be posted to him at Parliament House. Mr Hinton said he was trying to set up the meeting between the Premier and Cr Bowen but no date had been fixed. He said the Premier was leaving for Japan in a few days and the meeting would not be held before the departure date. At this stage, it loos as though the meeting will be held late in March. Cr Bowen said later on Wednesday he had no doubts about the outcome of the meeting, whenever it was held. "The Premier was quite clear about the cost to council being $2.5 million," Cr Bowen said. "He told us that in council and again repeated it for the Mirror. "As far as I am concerned, that's it. That was the offer and, as he said in the Mirror, 'We'll (the councillors) will grab that with both hands'. "And we will. All we need to do now is have the final plans drawn up and fix a starting date." Cr Bowen said council's $2.5 million would comprise some money held by council with the balance made up of a loan or loans. But even if the scheme started next month, it would take between 12 months and two years before it would be completed.

El ABOVE: Pound-keeper Linda Cummings with a stray Labrador corss she calls Dopey. Dopey is about six months old and was found dumped along Dolphin Crescent, Taranganba.

DOING your job at times can be quite frustrating... and pound-keeper, Linda Cumming is finding out just how frustrating it is. Under Livingstone Shire Council's bylaws Linda can legally pick up any registered or unregistered dog found roaming streets, vacant lots or any place other than their own backyards. What she doesn't have to do is put up with the torrent of abuse coming from some irate dog owners whose dogs have been picked up. Last week Linda picked up a stray dog which had its registration tag on. She knew where it lived so she took it back to it's home. When she got there the dog's owner used obscene language and threatened to harm Linda if she ever came to the area again. Linda said she had the authority to pick up the dog or any dog, and to take it back to the council pound behind the depot near the cemetery. This authority is for dogs found outside of their yards. It was the first time someone had directly abused Linda but what upset her was the person treated her badly only because she did her job. The dogs are kept at the Council depot for three working days and are then taken to the Central Queensland Society for the Prevention of Cruelty against Animals pound in Rockhampton if unclaimed. The animal is kept at the CQSPCA for a further seven working days, sometimes longer, but after this the animal has to be put down. An owner claiming a dog will be required to pay a pound fee of $40 to get the dog back and if it is unregistered animal, it has to be registered before it is released. To register an animal costs $5 for a desexed dog or $20 for an unspeyed dog. If the dogs haven't been claimed after the three days and someome wants an animal for a pet they can get one for nothing... but donations are always welcome. Linda not only covers the Capricorn Coast but her white utitity can also be seen as far south as Keppel Sands and at Ogmore, Marlborough and the Caves to the north. People can usually Linda in the office from 1pm to 4pm and can contact her by phoning 393622.

Students see through shire council office YEPPOON State High School year 10 students were shown through Livingstone Shire Council chambers this week. The students visited the council as part of their citizenship education course on local government. ` One group accompanied by Miss Bunt and another taken by teachers Mr Rocket and Mr Welch were shown how various council departments operate. Shire accountant Denis Murphy and chairman Cr John Bowen gave students a talk on the workings of the council. The idea behind taking students through council is to widen their experience. They meet councillors, see the running of a council and the various matters a council deals with. The excursion is made every year by the year 10 citizenship education classes and they will be given assignments and questionaires as a follow-up. Other year lOs in the geography class could be seen measuring land along Normanby and James Street and Anzac Parade earlier this week. The students were gathering information to construct a land use map. Next Thursday, they will be conducting traffic counts at various points to sort out the number of private, commercial and other cars using the road. The work is part of the geography students urban geography course using Yeppoon as the case study.

$15,796 grant for Blue Nurses FEDERAL Member for Capricornia Keith Wright announced a $15,796 grant for the Capricorn Coast Blue Nursing Service. The Commonwealth grant, under the Home and Community Care Programme, is to help frail, elderly people, and people with disabilities to achieve the maximum possible level of independence. Mr Wright said the HACC Programme was developed as an acknowledgement that most people would rather continue

living in their own homes as members of the larger community. The grant will go toward salaries and administrative costs to provide community nursing, home maintenance, respite care and education/training services on the Coast. "Given the right kind of help, it should be possible under this scheme for many people to delay, or avoid altogether, entering a nursing home or hospital," Mr Wright said.

At the recent birthday celebration at the Yeppoon ICA on the weekend, the nett proceeds were presented to us. After the loss of our home in a recent blaze, the people of Yeppoon have come forward to offer their assistance from the time of our loss to now. The consistancy of their help and generosity has made us realise how many people pitched in to "give us a hand" and offer any assistance they could manage. When the Yeppoon ICA announced that the proceeds would be presented to. us, and $450 was raised, we realised that a public thanks would be necessary to thank all those people whom we could never thank personally. Our sincere thanks go to all those who have given or offered assistance and especially to the 2 cricket teams, the netball teams and Ingra and Terry soldat,. and Col Robinson for their participation in the fundraising last weekend. Our thanks also go to "Nightowl Entertainment" for their provision of music throughout the evening, and all the umpires. We hope that with this public than have managed to include everyone as we would hate to miss anyone of the many people who have been so kind to us. Again, our sincere thanks. — Michelle, John and Melissa Moran

THE Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry is having a membership drive. Coast businesses are being canvassed by members to explain the advantages of being a chamber of commerce member. The aims of 1: re chamber of commerce are to promote commerce and to assist and encourage those engaged in it. The strength of an area's economy, including profitability and employment, depends directly on the climate for and the success of industry and commerce. Chambers of commerce must have policies on the wider economic management that affect business, all private enterprise and ultimately, most Australians. "It is imperative that all business people play their part by supporting the chamber and preferably by taking part in discussions," Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry president John Peach said. "We are looking for new members, new ideas and new input. Our next meeting is on Tuesday, March 3 at 7.30pm and we invite all interested people to attend." The meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm in the upstairs meeting room at the Capricorn Coast Mirror, corner of Adelaide Park Road and Cliff Street, Yeppoon. "The annual general meeting will be he; "n July and August and until then all I A/ members can join for the half-yearly fee of $10. "It is not enough to leave all things to `someone else' and that's why we are looking for new blood ... to 'help each other and in turn help the Coast."

Chamber seeks new members

I WRITE to congratulate the Parents and Citizens Association of the Yeppoon High School on their initiative in seeking upgrading the School facilities during last year's State election campaign. I am pleased to announce that my efforts as et result of their campaign, have been successful. I am informed by the Minister for Works and Housing Mr I. Gibbs, that tenders are now called for the construction of a new library complex (originally estimated to cost $370,000) for the School. The library will ease crowding in at least three classrooms •and provide library facilities in a proper atmosphere for library work and study. I will be advised by the parents and citizens' association as to future priorities, but it is apparent that a home economics class room, new administration block and a assembly hall are areas which I will be pursuing. It is gratifying to me that my tion commitment of a new library has been so speedily realised, and I have no doubt, pleasing also to the parents and citizens' association, teachers and students at the school. — -Denis G Hinton, Member for Broadsound.

Booster pump designs get OK OBTAINING a booster pump for the St Faith's reservoir was discussed at February council meeting. Shire engineer Pat Murphy said the Tarangabah main was not getting enough transfer capacity from St Faiths and the Taranganba reservoir experienced short falls in its water supply. To improve the situation, Mr Murphy suggested the council have a booster pump installed along the Taranganba main. He said that in peak times there was insufficient water at the Taranganba reservoir.

Installation of the booster pump would help overcome this shortfall. The estimated cost of installing the pump would be $108 500. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen asked Mr Murphy if the council was to spend the $108 000 would there be enough water to cope with future shortfalls. Mr Murphy said the booster would, increase the reservoir's capacity and could be also used if council planned other reservoirs. Council decided to have designs and specification prepared, but at this stage, no contract will be let.

Accommodation owner: loss of Maintenance van park to wipe out businesses for Cooee Bay CAPRICORN Coast accommmodation owner Hubert Murray said this week a replacement for the Beachside Caravan Park could, at some future date, be built to replace the existing business centre. Mr Murray said the business centre would be wiped out by the huge drop in trade caused by the loss of Beachside when the four-lane road to Capricorn Iwasaki Resort is built. His main concern was the businesses would suffer from the loss of the caravan park unless another development was constructed on the beachfront within the same distance of the main street as Beachside. In the long run, Mr Murray believed the Coast ratepayers would have to bear the cost of loss revenue to the shopkeepers and revenue brought in by the caravan park. "It shows the shortsightedness on the part of some people who haven't thought that without the caravan park a lot of money will be lost," Mr Murray said. He said it was up to every ratepayer to have a say on this matter because eventually it would come out of their pocket to pay for

the loss of revenue. The way Mr Murray sees it, there are two alternatives. The first could be the altering of the planned highway around Beachside and another is not to build it in the fir-st place. The building of the road, and sub'sequent closure of Beachside, would have a marked effect on the tourist and economic flow on, the Coast. "People won't come .and stay because there will be no alternative caravan park accommmodation within Cooee of the main business section of town," he said. Mr Murray said he stayed at Beachside for nine years and found the site "fantastic". "I know of some people who have kept coming back for 10 years to stay up to six weeks on the Coast and you'll lose them if Beachside is closed," he said. The site is ideal because it is only a short walk to shops and other places where they can buy their provisions. "You'll find places like Harvey Bay has beachfront caravan parks and they become packed. Ones further from the beach don't attract the custom. It will be the same in Yeppoon if Beachside is closed." Mr Murray said given time, the $2 million loss in revenue a year to business could decide the site of the new caravan park. "The new park will be on the sites of old businesses forced to close and move out because business was so bad," he said.

Glass Repairsi Senator urgei YEPPOON GLASS AND TILES support for vote roll update REPAIRS with CARE 53 Tanby Road39 1840, 39 7622 a/h

SENATOR David MacGibbon (Liberal, Queensland) this week urged Capricorn Coast residents to take part in an electoral roll update which is to be held throughout the State during the next three months. Senator MacGibbon said the Australian Electoral Commission would be doorknocking in all areas of the State, except the remote parts, where the update would be done by mail. "It is extremely important we have an accurate record of voters on both the State and, Federal Electoral rolls at all times and not just when an election is due," he said. "With more than 1000 people moving to Queensland from other States each week it is particularly vital for Queensland to keep its roll .up to date." Senator MacGibbon said although it was inevitable there would always be some error due to change of address and death, the Electoral Commission campaign would go a long way toward minimising this. Queenslanders can now fill out a single form to enroll in the separate State roll and Federal roll. "As the infrastructure is now in place, it would take very little additional time and effort to move to a single roll," he said. "This is a practical idea because time and time again it has been proven the Federal rolls are far more accurate and reliable than any of the State rolls."

A further $1000 was available if the trainee was classed as disadvantaged. This money was paid to offset costs. The trainees, because they have 13 weeks off-the-job training each year, are paid only 75 per cent of their salary by the employer. Mr McDonald said there were plenty of young people wanting to enter the workforce who needed training. On the other hand, employers often needed new blood. The answer for everyone was this scheme. It had a structured programme approved by unions, education authorities and all governments.

both on-the-job and off-the-job training. Employers are assured of getting trainees who were committed because of rigid preselection tests. He said people trained in all aspects of an employer's operation became valuable for three reasons: o Employers were depressed about young employees' lack of skills but, under this scheme, trainees were taught nearly all aspects of their job. • The scheme helps young people to decide on their future career. o It's good business sense to invest in a system like this. The system was bound to pay off by training staff the way a business wanted them trained. Mr McDonald the employers would have control of what was taught and how it was taught. Trainees aged between 16 and 18 are eligible for the programme but 15 and 19year-olds classed as disadvantaged were also eligible. Mr McDonald said the scheme was designed to produce a better trained workforce which will be more stable and adaptable. Areas most likely to provide vacancies will be in the clerical, hardware and spare parts fields.

BACKPACKERS' HOSTEL BRING! THE Backpackers' Hostel in Anzac Parade is proving to be a solid hit with travellers looking for a cheap night's accommodation. Located in the former Beach Palms unit block, the hostel can sleep 32 people a night ... and was filled to capacity just five nights after it opened. In a period where everyone is complaining about the poor economic conditions, the hostel has proved a very definite exception. Partners, and cousins, John and Tony Millroy operate the hostel and are confident their venture will draw more than 7500 backpackers to the Coast in the first year. And they say these backpackers are people who normally would have by-passed Yeppoon because of the lack of accommodation. John Millroy said the four former Beach

Palms units, each with two bedrooms, can-hold 32 backpackers because they are happy to occupy two double-decker bunks in each bedroom. Apparently the backpackers are very happy ... Mr Millroy said he had received plenty of praise about the high standard of accommodation, the view over the beach to the islands, the sundeck, pool and closeness to the shopping centre and entertainment. Still in its first month of operation, the hostel is averaging about 20 backpackers a night. Some stay a night, some two, some a week ... there's no way of telling how long they will stay because each backpacker is looking for something different. To encourage longer stays, the Millroys have used their bus to take guests to Cooberrie Park, Koorana Crocodile Farm and Stony Creek.

Discover the colors of Gold

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council has asked landowners rebuilding fence-lines not to throw their old barbed wire onto the roadside. The request for care came after one of council's herdsman's horses was injured on barbed wire along the Mt Hedlow Road recently. The horse stepped on old fencing material which was obscured by the long grass alongside the road. A tendon which had to be treated by the vet was the resultant injury to the horse. Councillors told of how other horses had been injured with old barbed wire left lying around and said it was dangerous to leave it in the long grass. Council resolved that property owners would be responsible for damages caused by wire left on roadsides.

NG 7500 TOURISTS TO COAST Also, to provide even better facilities, they have opened a BYO restaurant next door offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant opened to backpackers and the public last night (Friday) and Mr Millroy expects it to be another hit. In comparison with some ventures that take months to come to fruition, the hostel and restaurant have been noted for their speed. Mr Millroy said he and his cousin took over the Beach Palms units on a Sunday morning . and took in their first backers that afternoon. In the few short hours between taking over and re-opening, they removed the bedding from the units and replaced it with the double-decker bunks. That was on February 6. Now the


restaurant has opened. A former home, the restaurant has been completely refurbished and painted in just three weeks. Mr Millroy said the 7500 backpackers that would visit the Coast in the next year would have stayed in Rockhampton or on Great Keppel Island, because both areas have hostels. "They used to stay in Rockhampton, catch a bus to Rosslyn Bay, go to the island, stay there, then return directly to Rockhampton," he said. "Now they stay here either before or after visiting the island. "They arrive with only bare necessities on their back and have to buy their food, drink and entertainment each day. "That's a straight injection of cash into the Coast economy."

The applicant, a Gold Coast T-shirt artist, applied for approval to operate as a home occupation. The approval was given despite concern from island shop owners who wanted the man to retail his wares through their existing businesses. Council's shire planner said the application was made in accordance with council laws and regulations in the Local Government Act and should be accepted.

John Briggs then recorded a 3-0 win against Clay Nothling which with the games secured by the number three and four players gave Strugglers the results 10-7 on games. Mighty Macks Steve Creagh also played a marathon to come back and take the fourth and fifth games to win against Len Keily. Len's two games however proved to be the decider with Team One winning eight games to six after the other matches were all decided 3-0. Experience proved to be a deciding factor when Ian Atkinson and Ray Campbell defeated young players Glen Ward and Danny Taylor respectively in three. Roger Dale looked convincing with his 3-1 win over Judy Umlauft. Joe Foat added Brian Umlauft's scalp to his belt with a 3-0 result.

AN enthusiastic crowd of 100 intending basketball players has given Yeppoon Amateur Basketball Association new heart. Organisers were pleasantly surprised when 100 people turned up to play in an American Tournament on Monday, February 16 at the Arthur Street court. "We have decided to have -another American tournament because of the interest shown last week," YABA publicity officer Don Willoughby said. The tournament will be played on Monday, March 2 at the Arthur Street, Yeppoon court from 6.30pm. Yeppoon Amateur Basketball Assocation members initiated the tournaments to gauge interest in basketball on the Coast. "We are all hoping that a decision will soon be made on the recreational council's stadium in Cooee Bay. Once this happens a

full basketball competition will be planned ... revitalising the 20-year-old.,association." Mr Willoughby said there would be a slight departure from normal tournament rules on Monday. "Teams organised for the future season will be allowed to play as teams. But scratch teams made up from casual players will probably make up 'the majority. "Spectators are welcome to come along and see some of the real talent which became evident during play last week," Mr Willoughby said. Anyone who has contacted the association about playing basketball will be told when organisation of fixtures is complete. Mr Willoughby said that volunteers for coaching positions for all ages will be welcome.

SOCCER CLUB WANTS MORE JUNIORS FOR COMPETITION A JUNIOR sporting club that has been active on the Capricorn Coast for more than 15 years is looking for players. Yeppoon United Soccer Club (Eagles) has always been strongly represented in the Rockhampton district games. The club is affiliated with the Rockhampton District Soccer Federation but is organised completely on the Coast for the youth of the Coast. Last year Yeppoon Eagles has three 'athome' games on its own ground ... Apex Park. "Coast junior soccer is so organised we have coaches for all years and volunteers to assist," Yeppoon United Soccer Club secretary Wayne Breingan said. "The only thing we need now are more• players in the junior ranks." The under 7, 8 and 9 teams are noncompetitive and still play against the other district teams. The under 10, 12 and 13 are competitive. "In the past we have brought home heaps of praise and we intend to do the same again this year," he said. Training starts on Tuesday, March 3 at the Apex Park playing fields from 3.30pm. When the season starts the players are taken to Rockhampton in chartered buses with coaches and volunteers to care for them. "More. players are needed, especially in the under-12 team. There are 11 players to a side with four more as reserves." The 1987 season fees are $17 for the noncompetitive players (under 7, 8 and 9) and $25 for the competitive players (under 10, 12 and 13). If your child is interested in playing soccer contact secretary Wayne Breingan at Stewart and Brumm Chemists, James Street, Yeppoon, 39 1408 or after hours, 39 3660. "I have registration forms at work and would be pleased to see anyone interested."

Me (=hi fke littivuft "OLD BALDY" was interviewing someone this week who was discussing "organisms" ... and suggested he take care in spelling the word when using it! ❑

0 0

IT must have been one of those weeks for "Old Baldy" ... his next story was about sewerage but "OB" was rather busy at that precise point in time. So, thinking quickly,he said: "Look, about this sewerage, how about you sit on it for a week" ... then realised what he had said! O

0 0

NOW, if that sounds bad, he just managed to stop himself from saying that the problem with it was the cost of putting bums on seats! O


is going to be one of those long, rambling stories with little or no point ... some years ago (10, to be exact) one of Suzy's and "OB's" friends from the South came up to visit. On the way, the friend, a woman, saw a car accident. She stopped arid helped a man spattered with blood. A trained nursing sister, she did her best for ' him (not much, by the way because she had forgotten most of her skills) then offered the man a lift into Rockhampton. He gladly accepted because the alternative was sitting by the roadside in the middle of no-where in the middle of the night. At that time she drove a six-cylinder Holden Torana GTR XU-1 with eight-inch chrome wheels, wings front and back, air scoop in the bonnet and a black speed stripe. (She bought it at an auction she attended where she intended buying a VW beetle ... but she got carried away).. Anyway, ripping (literally) the car through the four-on-the-floor, she was quickly up to 100mph, her normal cruising speed. On the outskirts of Rockhampton, which was about an hour later, she slowed down (her right foot must have been tired) and, for the first time, looked across at her passenger. His face was white (except for the blood spatters from the accident) and his knuckles were standing out all bony like where he had been gripping the sides of the seat. She told him she had made "pretty good time" and asked if he felt any better. He told her he had never been so terrified in all his life. He said she drove like a maniac, was totally reckless and he had nearly died of fright. She dropped him off in Rocky .Jnd proceeded down the Emu Park Road to the Coast. When she arrived . at Kinka Beach she told Suzy and "OB" about this man and how ungrateful he was. She was obviously hurt by his remarks.
