Emu Park sewerage dilemma Full scheme to cost $4.5m Who pays? A SEWERAGE sche e big enough to provide for Emu Park' future growth will d will attract only cost $4.5 million... $212,000 in subsidy ,from the State Government. If the full cost of this scheme was charged to Emu Park/Zilzie ratepayers connected to, or able to be connected to the sch6ae, each household service would cost about $570 a year or $11 a week. If the costs were distributed over the entire Capricorn Coast, Emu Park ratepayers would pay $350 a year and Yeppoon ratepayers would pay $350, which would mean an additional annual sewerage payout of about $60 after taking into account the cost of future additional works needed in, Yeppoon. , Whatever way it is looked at, sewerage for Emu Park is a major item. It is so expensive that Livingstone Shire Council is drawing up plans and preparing arguments to • put before the State Government in an attempt to get special help. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen and shire engineer Pat Murphy discussed the sewerage scheme on Tuesday. Cr Bowen said the council was making plans to get "special case" assistance from the government based on "the thousands of millions" the government made from the Central Queensland coal boom. "We did not share in that boom," Cr Bowen said. "Other areas were given huge infrastructure grants to cope with increased population but nothing flowed through to the Capricorn Coast. "Yet the miners bought land here, built houses and now are among residents calling for sewerage." Cr Bowen says Emu Park also needs special assistance because its early subdivisions and development took place without the benefit of a town plan. The result, today, is that development is haphazard and areas that will be difficult to sewer have been developed and built on. Talk of a sewerage scheme catering just to the business area of Emu Park is useless," Cr Bowen said. "It would be expensive, attract no subsidy and, within five years, be a white elephant. And the treatment plant such a scheme would need would have to be built close to town. "Aside from the fact that no suitable land is available for such a treatment plant, it would be unsightly." Mr Murphy has concentrated on a sewerage scheme encompassing practically all of Emu Park and Zilzie to gain the maximum economy and the lowest cost per person. 0 CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

MLA calls for upgrading of clinic MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton has asked Health Minister Mike Ahern and the Rockhampton Hospitals Board to upgrade the Emu Park Medical Clinic, which operates every Thursday. "The attendance at the clinic is dropping because of intermittent attendance by the doctor, who is also in charge of the Yeppoon Hospital," Mr Hinton said. Mr Hinton said he was urging the Hospital

Board to provide a doctor from Rockhampton Base Hospital, so. that the service was reliable. "We have a high component of pensioners at Emu Park who need such a facility, and for whom travelling is an inconvenience and a hardship, particulary for patients with chronic illness," he said. "In any case, Yeppoon Hospital should never be left without a resident doctor on hand."

Areas to north and west of Gap St Police inquiries won't be sewered in present plan into vandalism 0 CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Areas to the north and west of Gap Street won't be sewered under this scheme but areas to the east will. Mr Murphy said "guestimates" were involved in • drawing up any sewerage scheme. Future growth must be taken into account. He has allowed for three per cent growth each year. This allows certain figures to be calculated: present population is 4000; there are now 728 occupied premises that could be connected and "x" amount would be added each year as the area grew. But Emu Park is a coastal area which means that at certain times of the year, such as at Christmas, house occupancy rises from an average of 2.6 people to 3.5. Therefore, a treatment plant for a proposed Emu Park sewerage scheme must be big enough to cater for future growth and future peak lOads. The scheme now being drawn up allows for some, treatment plant discharge onto Emu Park golf course but the bulk would be discharged into Coorooman Creek. Cr Bowen said it was the treatment plant that would receive government subsidy of $212 000 ... no subsidy was available for rising mains, sewer pipes or pumping stations. "These works were subsidised before 1981 but the subsidies were cut off in that year and restricted to treatment works only," he said. "The government's reasoning at the time was that most areas in Queensland already had exisiting sewerage schemes and the only costs they faced came from enlarging treatment works to cater for growth. "Also, most local authorities were making developers provide contributions toward sewering new sub-divisions." But that wasn't happening at Emu Park. The sub-dividers had come and gone. Cr Bowen said most of the sub-divisions were created 40 years ago and more. The result, today, is the council's plea to the government for special assistan .

percentage of pensioners living at Emu Park and their capacity to pay for sewerage. Cr Bowen said there were arguments for and against spreading the cost of sewerage over the whole Coast. "Councillors are elected for three-year terms but they have to look 25 years down the track in decisions they make on matters as big as sewerage schemes," he said. "Division two is sewered now, and coping. There is a thought that division two ratepayers have paid their way and should not have to pay anything toward another area's scheme. "But if the Coast sees the tourist boom that has so long been predicted, high-rise development in Yeppoon would put enormous strains on Yeppoon's treatment plant. "If division two now decided to help pay for Emu Park's sewerage, the future expansion of Yeppoon's treatment plant could then be subsidised by Emu Park ratepayers. "The Capricorn Coast is one area ... the divisions are lines on maps for electoral purposes only." So, if the Coast was treated as one area, all ratepayers connected to . or able to be connected to sewerage would pay about $350 a year. Mr Murphy said if $350 a year seemed expensive for sewerage charges, it was still $109 a year less than the highest local authority charge in Queensland. The fee was quoted in the Department of Local Government statistics for 1985-86. If treated as separate areas, Yeppoon would continue to pay its present sewerage charge ($203 a year) rising to about $290 "down the track". And Emu Park would pay $570. Cr Bowen was due to outline the costs of sewerage to Emu Park Progress Association on Thursday night. It looks to be a matter that will be the subject of long debate.

in eases grass fir problems AIN early this week has given the ppoon Fire Brigade room to breathe. A fire-brigade spokesman said the rain should reduce the recent spate of grass fires experienced along the Coast. Emu Park's fire-brigade has been kept busy this week attending grass fires at Kinka Beach, the dump and along Zilzie Beach. All were quickly controlled and extinguished. The Yeppoon fire-brigade also attended grass fires; one in Tucker Street and then another in Todd Avenue. Again, the fire brigade had the grass fires contained but is glad of the relief, this week's rain will provide.

YEPPOON police are still interviewing people over recent vandalism on Farnborough Beach near Bangalee Estate. Vandals damaged a council sign and are also suspected of stealing a 14-year-old youth's shirt and hat as well as damaging some of his property. The vandalism followed a break-andenter last week into the National Wildlife Park at Rosslyn Bay. No property was taken. On Tuesday morning, an attempted break-and-enter was unsuccessful at Findlays electrical store. The culprits were unable to enter the shop.

ELEVEN COAST SECONDARY STUDENTS IN CO SWIM SQUAD ELEVEN Coast secondary school students have been selected to represent the Central District in swimming. The students selected were Rachel Sargood, Vanessa O'Neil, Rachel Airen, Justine Brettell,- Jason Moody, Matthew Dooley, James Turner, Julian O'Neil, Steven Walsh, Jason Schmidt and Troy Ross. Three schools, St Brendan's, St Ursula's and the Yeppoon State High School participated in the inter-school carnival at the Southside pool last Friday. There were 10 girls' teams and eight boys' teams at the carnival which saw Coast swimmers improve on previous past results. St Brendan's came second, St Ursula's fourth and the High School sixth in the boys and ninth in the girls. St Brendan's was only eight points behind carnival winners Grammar School.

Final scores were the Grammar School, 347 and St Brendan's on 339 points. Physical educatin teacher Peter Johnston said the boys performed above expectations. Six,boys were chosen iQ,the Capricornia squad to compete at Gladrfolie. The boys chosen were locals Matthew Dooley 13 years, James Turner 14 years, Jason Schmidt 16 years and boarders Troy Ross 15 years, Julian O'Neil 15 years and Steven Walsh 14 years. In the age aggregates, St Brendan's finished in the top four positions in all of them. Under 14s were first, under 13s, 15s and 16s second and the opens were fourth. St Brendan's also won the relay/ ggregate. Five pupils from St Ursula's College gained positions somewhere in the first three placings but a number of minor placings boosted the College's points tally.

Two students, Vanessa O'Neil 16 years and Justine Brettell 15 years were selected to represent the Central District. Vanessa was first in the 16 years 50m backstroke, Justine was second in the 15 years 50m freestyle and backstroke, and. third in the 15 years 50m butterfly. Other students to gain places were Kate Kenny third, 13 years 50m backstroke; Katrina Phipps third, 14 years 50m backstroke; and Leesa Phelan third, 16 years 50m breastroke. After final points were tallied, 13 years came fifth; 15 years third and the 16 years age group was second. The individual and freestyle teams were placed third and fourth in most events which consolidated their position in the top four placings. Yeppoon State High School physical

education teacher Kendall George said the school's improvement at the inter-schor swimming carnival came about througi— more enthusiasm and training in the new Olynipic pool. In all ages, she said there was an overall improvement with three students, Rachel Sargood (13 years), Rachel Airen (16 years) and Jason Moody (14 years) being selected for the district team. The highest placing any student obtained was a second, which was achieved by Hamish Brettell in the open 50m backstroke. The girls' team came ninth out of 10 schools with the 15 year age group gaining the highest position as sixth overall. In the boys' aggregate total, the school was placed sixth out of eight schools. The 14-yearold and 16-year-old teams both came fifth in their age groups.

Bruce Hutton recalls day he set six swim records... ST BRENDAN'S 16-year-old Bruce Hutton won six swimming events in record time 22 years ago... and, until last month, he still held the 16 years 50m backstroke record. This final record fell to Jason Schmidt at last month's inter-house swimming carnival. But Bruce Hutton still has his name in the record book at St Brendan's because 21 years ago he set a record for the 50m open backstroke. This week, when contacted in Brisbane where he lives, he was surprised that he still held a record and that one had only been broken last month. "I didn't realise it was the backstroke' record for 16-year-olds that I still held," he said. "I thought it would have been broken years ago with all the modern technology available to kids today. It wasn't around when I was swimming at St Brendans," he said. His family is remembered for. owning.

0 ABOVE: Remember this? This picture was on the front page of the March 1 March 7 issue of the Capricorn Coast Mirror last year. These bare trees are what became the famous "hard pruned" mango trees in Taranganba. There were cries that someone should be horsewhipped and outrage foamed. The "hard pruned" trees were the subject of some not-so-serious comments ... one councillor asked if council wanted a motion that said "no more touchee trees". Then shire engineer Tony Rowe told council the trees were "full of disease and rot". "They'll come back better than ever."

Do iyou recall the mango tree fight? 0 BELOW: The same trees photographed on March 1 this year... one year after the "hard pruning". Why present the photograph? Well, a year ago there was a lot of talk about the Mirror should have a look at the trees "a year from now" ... and our filing system is so sophisticated, this picture idea popped up exactly one year later! Who was right? Was it worth all the ruckus? That's for you to decide!

Mr H' ton said the Vallis Park area only purpor d to Crown Land, not the adjacent cou it land, which would be an ideal site for a ok-out. "Vallis Park has unique flora and fauna, with many varieties of small birds, and native plants such a native hollies. It is close to town and ideal for school nature studies and excursions and bush walks," he said. "We need to ensure that the Capricorn Coast's greatest asset, its natural beauty, is preserved. Unique areas must be set aside now, before it is too late. Vallis Park merits such consideration."

INSTITUTE CONTINUES CAUSEWAY STUDY TO BUILD MODEL: Coloured bottles dropped from bridge to determine current flow A NUMBER of Main Road Department Surveyors recently dropped coloured bottles off the Causeway Lake Bridge to determine where the current in the lake flowed. The surveyors took periodical checks during the day to assess current flow, where it was calm and where silt wasn't being stirred up. Previous experiments have taken place at the Causeway and with the most recent information, the data will be used to construct a concrete model to find a solution for the Causeway's erosion problem. Valuable real estate is sliding into the waves and in an effort to stop the erosion, the Capricornia Institute teamed up with the Department of Main Roads to find a solution. Giant tidal erosion and silting in the Causeway Lake system is slowly eating away Kinka Beach, once a stretch of fine sand on the Capricorn Coast. The project undertaking by the CIAE and . ,d Main Roads Department will att- •• - • a way of preventing 60i e u• c sand disappearin• • .c year • m th inka ld p of and to Beach foresh sediment the Causeay L The atural tida w out ofi Causeway 1940s when the Lak was cut .ff i the ar ficial La • was b narrow bridge openi • g concre e. e sea can enter the e only Ci it ngineering head Bill-Grigg se of the ..rrocv entrance, a said b E• concentrate• ti .a flow occurs, radically affecting the flow of Kinka Creek and moving beach sand in the wrong directions.

Sand is moving in a circular pattern pushed along by high tides prevailing southeasterly wind instead of being pushed back onto Kinka Beach by natural wave movement. Mr Grigg said fast-flowing tides dumped the sand at the mouth of the creek and the wind pushed it back onto large sand spits created at the mouth of Kinka Creek. "A false shoreline has been created barricading the creek from its natural ocean outlet, driving the tides nearer to the coast road and residential areas," Mr Grigg said. This continuous build up of sand spits has narrowed the tidal outlet making the water flow much faster than normal. The result is deep gouging of the beachfront sand. Should a cyclone pass the Capricorn Coast and an abnormally high tide surge occur, it was likely that the sea would swamp the road near Kinka Beach and severely damage any housing along the beachfront. MRD chief surveyor Jeff Fisher said the sea could force its way into the low lying reas behind the beach and completely drain he Causeway Lake. To help find a solution, a 15 metres square model built to exact measurements will be constructed. The model will show the entire Causeway Lake and Kinka Beach tidal system. A similar concrete model of the Yeppen flood plain was used by the Institue to help plan a southbound, road and rail route from Rockhampton. The Causeway Lake and Kinka Beach model 'will provide detailed information on tidal flow pattern and the rate at which sea water fills and empties the lake. Mr Grigg said the concrete model would help give an accurate assessment of the erosion problem and provide possible solutions. One solution being investigated is the possible construction of a rock training wall from the Causeway out into the sea. This would channel Kinka Creek away from the beach and direct the flow out into deep water in the open sea. The model will also show where water currents are weak and sediment has accumulated in the Lake. Because of the narrow entrance and the construction of a concrete sill under the Causeway Bridge, it is only at certain times of the year tides are high enough to flow over the sill and into the lake. Full measurements for the model have almost been finalised enough to start construction.

RAILWAY CAREER STARTS, ENDS ATYEPPOON Bayview Tower / News & Views 15-year-old lad porter leaves as station master

MAL EDWARDS retired on Monday after 49 years with the railways ... and he closed his career at Yeppoon Railway Station, where he started it in 1937. Mr Edwards, who celebrated his 65th birthday on Monday, started at Yeppoon as a lad porter. He returned to Yeppoon as station master on October 2 last year, his final posting. He was only a few months short of his 50 years because he started at Yeppoon on August 9, 1937. He was paid 24 shillings a week. By 1942 he had become a classified night officer and was paid £271 a year. He was posted away from Yeppoon in 1942 to carry out duties as a relief officer for a number of years until being appointed assistant station master at Clermont on February 24, 1949. He was again moved around until becoming the station master at Oxley in 1964. But the railway started bringing him nearer home last year when he was appointed station master at Moura in April then at Yeppoon in October. Born at Stanthorpe, Mr Edwards came to Yeppoon with his family in 1929 and attended Yeppoon State Primary School. His high school years were spent at St Ursula's Convent and at the Rockhampton Technical College. Mr Edwards looking back to when he first started with the railway as a lad porter in 1937, said it was a sleepy town which awoke on weekends. A daily steam train took workers and children to work or school but on Sundays, two daily services were needed to cater for the multitude of people visiting the Coast. In those days, the train left at 7.07am to begin its hour-and-a-half journey to Rockhampton. Along the way it stopped at Bondoola, Cawarral, Mt Chalmers and the Sleipner junction siding to pick up school children and workers. At the Sleipner junction, the Yeppoon train of five or six carriages would met the Emu Park train of about three carriages. An 'express' train would then run straight through to North Rockhampton, while a second followed to pick up people from the Coolcorra. Leaholme, Lakes Creek, Kalka, Koongal and Berserker sidings. Mr Edwards said some people got off at the North Rockhampton stop to catch buses to work but others continued on to the William or Archer Street stations.. About 200 people daily caught the train to work. Mr Edwards said it was more or less a life-line' for Coastal residents. The Coast road hadn't been built, there was no bridge across the Causeway lake and people needed tare train to cart mail, cream, fruit (but not in the quantities carried today) and as a means of transport to and from Rockhampton.

Ambulance at three accidents YEPPOON Ambulance officers have been called to three road accidents in the past week. At the first, a two-car collision at the Hidden Valley Road and Rockhampton Road intersection, a man and woman were injured and taken to Yeppoon Hospital. The ambulance was called to the accident about 4pm last Friday. The spokesman said the woman, Julia Williams, 20, of Yeppoon, suffered whiplash, a seatbelt burn to the right shoulder and shock. The driver of the other vehicle, Bradley Duke, 25, received lacerations to the left leg and was admitted to Yeppoon hospital with chest injuries. On Sunday there was two accidents. At 1pm, there was a single motor accident at Bondoola. The driver refused first-aid for a cut to the back of his head. At 6.20pm the ambulance was called to a motorcycle accident halfway between the Oaks and the Waterslide. Trevor White, 28, a conference director, was taken to Yeppoon hospital suffering shock and injuries to the right ankle.

Get well wishes will be sent to Emu P president Joan Burns who is on the sic 0 0 o THE preceding; item and a Yeppoon pension4r and Ye Bowls Club notes are alway Bill Shuttlewood. Bill is an untirin' worker I pensioners and, be ause he is job, often gets unde • s in ..ut, delightful and always po h• • .oing so. I hope all his members and associates realise what lucky people they are to have such a champion. Bill doesn't mention his wife Thelma very often in his notes and she always seems to stay in the background, naturally, she works too. He and Thelma are also difficult people to thank because they expect to do what they do without any praise. He is so definite about what rights pensioners have and should have that sometimes he puts up the hackles on his opponents ... but all to the good. Thank you Bill and Thelma for all the good you are doing from those who are too shy to say it.

WELL, our rates are due on Tuesday, March 10 and this year they seem to have come around earlier than usual. But then again I think I always feel that way when they arrive. Food for thought. This time next year, we will all be getting ready to decide who we want for our representatives on council for another three years. Will the rates arrive before the March 30 polling date next year? Actually, I don't think our rates are dear, but one of the other 'things' included in the rates is ... the water. Now, John and I pay water rates for so many units here at the office and only use about a quarter of what we,pay for. On the other hand we also pay the same amount for where we live at Kinka Beach. Now you all know what Kinka is like sand! and boy does the water soak into it never to be seen again. We don't have a 'spear' so can't tap into the underground water and therefore we use town water for everything ... but there isn't enough to water the lawn. I rang the council and asked if the water we had paid for at the office in Yeppoon (and had not used) could be credited to our Kinka Beach water. No way was the answer, even though we had paid and not used. O

THIRD GRADE CRICKETERS LOOK FOR WIN CAPRICORN Coast third grade cricket team played its first innings against Allenstown on Saturday in the last match before the semi-finals. Coast was defeated by Allenstown in the. second game of the season. The toss was won by Coast who sent Allenstown into bat and that team was all out for 203. Brendan Fleetwood was Coast's top wicket taker with three for 29 from 14 overs.

Trevor Wellman also took three wickets, but was not as economical as Brendan with 37 runs from nine overs. Gavin Wust took two for 16 from two overs and Chris Smalley was one for 20 from two overs. Dale Wetzler was wicket-keeper and proved his worth to the team when he stumped an Allenstown player. Coast completed 22 overs at close of play and were three for 81.

Trevor Wellman was top scorer with 53 followed by Dale Wetzler with 11. The match will continue today at the Rainbows wicket, Elizabeth Park. The second grade team will play in the first of the semi-finals today (Saturday) against Grammar School. Organisers hope that the steadiness of play against this team during the season will show in the semi-final and Coast will come out winners.

YEPPOON Seagulls finished the pre-season trials with one win and one loss. Yeppoon defeated Fitzroys 28-26, and were beaten by Norths 26-20. Now the real contest starts. The league season starts this Sunday at 1.30pm with the first of the new style group football inaugurated by Central Queensland Division. With group football, each club will participate in a number of home games. The Seagulls start with play against Railways. Yeppoon has always had a successful contest against Railways when the action has taken place at the Coast, and the club hopes for a similar success this weekend. First game starts at 1.30pm and the main game starts at 3pm. Yeppoon is planning its own playing field and club house, but these are far from accomplished yet, and the venue for play this

weekend is at St Brendan's College, on Sunday. Club officials will be devoting a lot of energy and time to ensure that the venue will please both players and spectators. The advantage of playing "at home" is that local supporters can get to watch their teams in action. Seagulls officials are hoping there will be a big roll-up of Yeppoon and district people along to barrack for the local team. The Railways (Rabbitohs) will undoubtedly have a big crowd come from Rockhampton to urge their team to success, so a big crowd of Seagulls supporters is hoped for. "Be with the crowd at St Brendan's on Sunday to watch your team play ... and give them vocal encouragement to ensure they open the 1987 League' season with a win," Seagulls secretary Noel Alley said.

YABA gets trial period at stadium A CROWD of players and spectators at the Yeppoon Town Basketball Court on Monday night, was told the Yeppoon Amateur Basketball Association had been successful in its application for use of the Queensland Recreation Council's Cooee Bay Stadium for a trial period.

Junior scratch matches will be held then up to Midday when the open competition begins. Throughout the day a sausage sizzle, hamburgers and soft drinks will be available

Rockets zip through Bog Factory THE first set of Yeppoon Table Tennis Club fixtures was held on Thursday, February 26. Rockets started off on a high note by recording a brilliant win over Bog Factory, 92. Both number one players, David Stewart and Greg Simpson, boasted some great shots and kept each other on their toes. After going down in the first game, David took the next two 21-9 and then a close 2321. It was good to see Gordon Salton returning after quite some time away from the sport, and he started off with two wellearned wins against Dave Ryan and Peter Malick. Rockets' third player, Scott Malick, was also firing on the night as he defeated Dave and Peter as well. Since Rockets had slipped away to a three to nil lead, the first set of doublbes proved quite a battle between Bog Factory's Greg and Dave, and Rockets' David and Gordon. The games could have gone either way, but Rockets once again scraped through in the last of three, 24-22. In the second set, the games score went to three, however David and Scott had a more comfortable win over

Greg and Peter in the third. On the other table, Dynamics scored an eight to three win over Marvels, although the games were much closer than the overall score suggests. The first four matches played all went to three games each. Rob Green played consistently to win all his matches for the night. Marvels' second player, Ray Morgan, who has returned to table tennis after a long spell, should not take long to return to form and will prove to be a tough contender. Bill Sherlock played well to defeat Ray and Mick Malick and also took one game off Monica Christensen. Dynamics' number three player, Neil Malick, caused a surprise upset by defeating his father, Mick, and when teamed up with Rob, won their doubles against Monica and Mick. In the first set of doubles, Rob and Bill combined their talents and defeated Monica and Ray in three games. The draw for Thursday, March 12 is Bog Factory v Marvels, Dynamics v Dolphins and Rockets have the bye.

HOW come "the leaders of the 21st century" aren't as ,smart as we are? Kid came home from school the other day and started dribbling out words about some high school social that was going to be held on Wednesday night. He mumbled and bumbled and talked about wearing some fancy costume and cutting his hair off and putting tattoos on his arms and more stuff like that so mother turned off and started watching TV. Kid kept talking away then, when something intelligent (a commercial) came on the tube, he stopped for breath and paid attention to the screen. Anyway, the commercial, or whatever it was, stopped and son started mumbling away again. Mother, thoroughly fed up with constant stream of gunk, broke in and asked kid if he had to take anything. Blank look came across boy's face. "Money," he said. Mother replied of course he had to take money, did he think she was as thick as a plank and so on until kid finally turned off and started watching TV. Finally, kid returned „to conversation about the social. "Oh, I hive to take a plate," he said. Mother hit the roof. She needed mot-, warning about things like that. How co, she be expected to whip up something for him to take when he only told her the night before. Son stared blankly, got up, walked into kitchen, made a noise, and came back with a plate. "I've got a plate," he shouted. "What's the panic?" Mother just stared athim. "And what do you think you will put on the plate," she said. Boy didn't know. Mother explained that "taking a plate" meant a plate full of food ... "you know, cakes, cookies, biscuits, Mars Bars, or whatever. How do you think you wind up getting something to eat?" Kid was amazed ... he was seriously going to turn up with an empty plate and fill it with whatever was there. Roll on 21st century!!! o o o REMEMBER Long John Silver, the pegleg pirate with the cocky on his shoulder? Well, here's a twist to the story. There's a woman in Yeppoon who has a mate who sells cocky-type birds. She has always wanted one so saved her pennies and told mate to provide one. When she got it home she noticed something was amiss ... one foot. The bird was standing there in the cage on only one foot. She had another look and, no, it didn't have it tucked up where-ever birds stick their spare foot when standing on one leg. Now, to make the bird look normal, she considered getting a pirate to put on its shoulder (see, there was a point to Mr Silver being mentioned at the start) but, finally, she decided to confront her bird-selling mate and lay out her problem. Now, either mate is the ultimate salesman or he needs glasses, because when she told him about the bird being "foot loose" he told her h had never noticed. OK, that's possible ... but he'd had the bird five years. Anyway; he whipped out his wallet and gave her $10. Now she's happy, he's happy and apparently, after a five-year balancing act, the bird is happy. But if a bird's foot is worth $10, how come all these chicken places on the Coast can sell half a chook and give change out of $5? o o o THERE'S a German Shepherd in Yeppoon that likes to chase birds on the beach (hey, there's a few blokes with the same hobby). Anyway, this dog likes to run on the beach and kick up the sand and chase the birds and bark and jump and chase the birds and bark and jump and so on (you get the idea?) Now, when he's not on the beach, he's penned up in the middle of town with not much view from his backyard. But he can see the sky ... and, when he sees a bird fly overhead he barks and jumps on the fence and runs up the back stairs and barks and generally endears himself to the neighbours. Now, the point to this story is, when he sees a hang-glider hovering overhead he goes off his tiny brain. He barks and jumps (and so on). The problem is ... his owner is worried about what the dog will do if ever it's on the' beach and a hang-glider comes in for a landing. This is serious, so much so that the owner has warned hang-glider pilots to beware of the dog. Actually, I wouldn't worry ... dogs chase cars but hardly tea them apart when they see one parked. Still, if I was flying a hang-glider I would take a look below before landing!!! o o o OK Sandra and Cathy, you've read the column ... now, get back to work!!!
