Students can win cash for ANZAC essay ANZAC DAY, April 25, is a day that we must not forget. It is a day of such significance to Australia that it must be taught to our children so that they will remember it, long after those who were part of it have passed on. With this aim, Yeppoon and Emu Park RSLs, together with the Capricorn Coast Mirror, have again provided $90 in cash prizes for essays on ANZAC Day. RSL members have sent a circular to Livingstone Shire schools advising of the essay competition and inviting students to participate. In addition, RSL members will visit these schools and give a talk about the meaning, and significance, of ANZAC Day. A video, compiled by the Australian War Memorial, is also available. Called The Boys of the Dardanelles, the video tells the ANZAC story in 21 action-packed minutes. School principals and teachers have been asked to make their students aware of the essay competition and to encourage entries. There are three sections: O Students of Year 8 and under. O Students of Year 9 and over. O A new section for a poem, which is open to all age groups. Essays for Year 8 and under are to contain about 500 words and, for essays from Year 9 and over, about 1000 words. First prize in each section will be $20 cash and second prize is $10. These prizes will be presented at the Cenotaph in Beaman Park on ANZAC Day at the conclusion of the march and services. The winning entries will be published in the Mirror. All entries must reach the Mirror office not later than Wednesday, April 22. The office is located on the corner of Adelaide Park Road and Cliff Street, Yeppoon, or they can be posted to the Mirror, P.O. Box 769, Yeppoon, 4703. A separate sheet of paper must be attached to each entry giving the name, age, school and grade of the entrant. No name should appear on the entry itself. The judges' decision will be final.

A COMPREHENSIVE survey on page 3 is a major step in a move for a goverment supported child care facility on the Coast. Federal Member for Capricornia Keith Wright has supplied the questionnaire to determine the extent of need for such a facility on the Coast. It is important that any parent seeking child care fill out the questionnaire and either post it to Mr Wright's office or leave the completed form at the Capricorn Coast Mirror office or in the special box provided at the Emu Park Newsagency. Put your completed form in an envelope and seal it. The unopened envelopes will be passed on to Mr Wright's office. The questionnaire is important ... if the numbers needing child care are sufficient, either an existing facility, or a new one, will be able to satisfy Coast needs. We at the Mirror know the need exists. So does Ann Dickson, the entrepreneur who last year opened the Yeppoon Day Care Centre. Mrs Dickson felt there was a need; surveyed the Coast by advertising her intentions in the Mirror, and,,, after receiving more than 50 applications for day care, built and opened her centre in Ranger Drive. In fact, so strong was the demand, Mrs Dickson was planning an extension of the new building to lift its capacity from 40 children a day to 65 ... and that planning was going ahead just days before the opening! But, when she opened, many parents found the $60 weekly charge too much for the family budget. Mrs Dickson's centre, being privately owned, did not qualify for government subsidy. The result was that the many parents who qualified for the subsidy took their children to Rockhampton for day care. There, in government supported facilities, a child would be looked after for about $15 a week. The fact that Mrs Dickson's charges were still $16 a week less than the government centres did not come into it ... Mrs Dickson's private enterprise operation withered while the government subsidised facilities prospered. The questionnaire in this week's issue will not be the final nail in the private enterprise coffin ... Mrs Dickson has had talks about the questionnaire and is prepared to have farther talks with the government along the lines of leasing her complete centre, possibly even selling it, to an authority that will qualify for the government subsidy. If this comes about, the Coast will have its own government subsidised child care centre and eliminate the need for so many parents to make daily trips to Rockhampton, saving them petrol, wear and tear on their vehicles ... and the exhaustion that such daily travel with a small child, or children, entails. The Mirror urges everyone who could make use of this facility to complete the questionnaire ... it's in your interests!

Governor to visit Coast CHILDREN from Ogmore, Marlborough, Keppel Sands, Mt Chalmers and all points in between will meet Queensland Governor Sir Walter Campbell, QC on Thursday. Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen extended an invitation to Sir Walter Campbell and Lady Campbell last year to visit the shire. The Governor and his wife will stay at Capricorn Iwasaki Resort for a short holiday, but they will also participate in a few official functions in the Central Queensland area. A committee was formed by Cr Bowen to organise the official functions for the couple on Thursday, their first day in Central Queensland. Sir Walter and Lady Campbell will arrive at

Rockhampton airport from Brisbane at 2pm. They will be escorted to the Coast by Rockhampton motorcycle police to arrive at Yeppoon Town Hall at 3.15pm. "His Excellency will arrive at the Town Hall in a Rolls Royce lent to the shire by Ross' Run," Cr Bowen said. "Children from all the shire's schools will form a guard of honour in front of the town hall. Then there will be a further guard of honour up the stairs and into the hall for the official part of the afternoon's function." Cr Bowen said the Governor would travel down the new highway, along Anzac Parade, then into Normanby and James Streets before arriving at the town hall. Seven-year-old twins Richelle and Michelle

Rare Fruit meet

* 4w0u0D pue

HAVE you tasted Carambola? The March meeting of the Rare Fruit Council will have the fruit for you to taste. The Carambola is sometimes called the five corner or star fruit. It is between 8 and 18 cm long with five or six ridges running length ways. There are many varieties and they range in colour from pale green to bright orange. The wax-like skin gives the fruit an attractive appearance and a good shelf life. The tree usually produces fruit within two years of planting and would easily find a place in most backyards. • The meeting will also offer you a chance to buy trees. It is on Saturday, today, at 10am in the National Fitness Hall in Queen Street, Yeppoon. Talks and slides on flower structure and pollination as well as other displays of fruit grown here and further north.

Wright seeking co-operation for 'care' survey FEDERAL Member foi- Capricornia Keith Wright is seeking public co-operation in the preparation of a detailed submission for the establishment of a Government supported child care facility on the Capricorn Coast. Mr Wright said privately owned child care centres were not eligible for State or Federal Government assistance. "There is an excellent child care centre in Yeppoon but because it is a private enterprise venture, parents do not receive any fee relief if they send their children there," he said. "Some families even take their children to Rockhampton because of the availability of fee assistance even though the Yeppoon centre is more convenient and the charges are less per hour as a basic rate." Mr Wright said if Yeppoon was to be considered seriously for the establishment of a government supported centre, detailed statistics had to be compiled. He said while it might be possible to obtain funding for a brand new child care centre sponsored by the council or by a community group, there appeared to be strong support for the idea of the Federal and State Governments either buying, of leasing the existing private centre. "Before any proposition will be considered, the facts must be gathered and a case prepared," Mr Wright said. "To do this I need all the families who are using or who need to use, child care facilities to complete the survey that has been generously sponsored by the Capricorn Coast Mirror." Mr Wright said he would also be pleased to hear from any community group or local people who would be prepared to be involved in the administration of a child care centre should the leasing or purchase proposition be ultimately accepted by the State and Federal Governments. "They key to success will be to prove that Capricorn Coast families will be better off by having their own child care facility on the Coast rather than in Rockhampton," he said. "Secondly, there will have to be enough families willing to use a local centre to make the proposition financially viable."

AIDS Not a common topic of conversation on Capricorn Coast.. AIDS, the disease that kills, is not a common topic of discussion on the Capricorn Coast. Everyone knows about it ... very few talk about it! As yet, AIDS is not a topic in the classroom. In fact, because AIDS is more often sexually transmitted, it comes under the heading of "sex education" and, by State law, cannot be discussed in the Coast's public schools. Capricorn Coast Mirror reporter Cathy Logan spent this week finding out just what information is available on the Coast about AIDS. The idea for these articles came about because of the ABC's Four Corners programme last week which brought AIDS into the home for open discussion.

The experts, the educators, the homosexuals and the "concerned citizen," as well as some school-age teenagers voiced their opinions and concern and asked and answered questions. The ABC debate became heated at times but was kept to the point ... and the point that became apparent was that many people consider AIDS to be something that happens to other people. What also came out of the debate is that people, everywhere, "straight" and "gay," have to be told certain information about AIDS. * Condoms help prevent the spread of AIDS. * Condoms are available at all Coast chemists. There is no age limit on

purchasers. In some chemist shops, they are openly on display so as to minimise any customer embarrassment. * So far as the Mirror can find out, no Coast high school has displayed a condom before a class of adolescents (the age group that has been shown to most need them). * There are plans to hold courses at Yeppoon High School ... but they will be after school hours and only (at this stage) for Years 8, 9 and 10. (Years 11 and 12 will miss out because the course is still under trial and being tested in Brisbane). * St Ursula's already has a "personal development course" for Years 8 and 9 which covers sexually transmitted diseases (STD) but not AIDS in depth. * St Brendan's College believes sex

Statistically, there should be 100 AIDS-infected people in region AIDS does not exist in Central Queensland, Community Health Department director Dr Ken Burns said this week. But statistically, there should be 100 AIDS-infected people. Dr Burns is chairman of a committee of four people with medical backgrouds set up early this year to keep track of, and counsel, anyone found to have positive AIDS antibodies. The committee's second task is to alert the community to the risk of AIDS. It is gathering all available information about the disease; educating the public through talks; and setting up a resource centre for the public at the Rockhampton Community Health Centre. Dr Burns said to his knowledge there were 400 reported cases in Queensland but statistically there should be 2000 with 100 in Central Queensland. However no-one in the region has had a blood test which has proved positive. Dr Burns said a person could have the

`One ticket in lottery could win first prize' odds on AIDS

virus, which has been renamed the Human Immuno-Deficiency Virus (HIV), in three different stages. Dr Burns said those in Category C have positive antibodies in the blood but show no other symptom. A category B sufferer is positive and develops other symptoms like a fever but some people with category A develop several symptoms. Dr Burns said it has been found the disease may not only break-down the immune system, but can also attack the central nervous system. If the community doesn't take AIDS seriously it could wipe itself out, Dr Burns said and the high-risk people should come forward for testing and counselling. Risk groups are those who have multiple sexual partners, people participating in unprotected intercourse and intravenous drug users who share their needles and syringes. The AIDS-group is not trying to say what is right or wrong ... but possible preventative measures are delaying sexual activity, minimising the number of partners, and taking steps of protection. Dr Burns said it also would mean people shouldn't be so complacent. Even if you have only on other sexual partner you could be infected. "If you buy 100 tickets in a lottery it doesn't mean you'll win the prize. On the other hand if you only buy one ticket it could be the winner," he said.

AUSTRALIAN MADE Absolutely, definitely, positively not made in Taiwan. If you've ever bought an Australian flag that's made in Taiwan, or an Aussie slouch hat made in the Philippines, you'll know how hard it is sometimes to distinguish a geniune Australian made product. These days, we're all aware of the urgent need to buy our own products - especially when the price and quality compares well with imported items. Every time you buy an Australian made product instead of an imported product, you're helping Australia's economy and helping to keep an Australian employed. To help you identify Australian made products easily, more and more are carrying

the True Blue Australian Made symbol, featuring the gold kangaroo in the green triangle. Any product which claims to be Australian made and does not carry this symbol, has not been certified by the Advance Australia Foundation as a geniune Australian made product, made in Australia by Australians. So if you want to put True Blue Australian made products on your shopping list, just look for the symbol that guarantees it's the geniune article. Anything else just isn't True Blue. AM7 204 37

education is the role of the parent and the college provides only back-up support. After numerous phone calls and personal interviews, Cathy Logan filed these articles. Parents, especially, should read these stories. Your children are, so far, not getting the full AIDS story from "official" sources. But many have heard the jokes and innuendoes. If you wish to get further education, phone the community Health Centre (Yeppoon 39 1469), Rockhampton (27 1755) or speack to your own doctor. If you want a blood test to check if you have AIDS you can arrange it through your own doctor or any hospital. The blood test is free. The results are strictly confidential.

Yeppoon High has 'personal development' courses YEPPOON State High School principal John Gregg said that through the auspices of the parent and citizens' association, the school ran a personal development course for parents and students. The four-week course has separate sessions for Year 8s, 9s and lOs and this is the second year the course has run. Under State Government law, the school is unable to hold sex education classes and any sessions are organised through parent and citizen organisations. The personal development programme is run by the government in conjunction with P and C associations, on a voluntary basis, but it is the only way for sex education to be taught on the Coast. Mr Gregg said sexually transmi'ted diseases (STD) would be handled explicitly.

St Ursula's has plan for course discussing STD ST URSULA'S College principal Sr Marion Kingston said the college had started a personal development course for Years 8 and 9. The school has also planned a programme, for years 10 to 12 which will discuss such issues as sexually transmitted diseases (STD). In religious education classes, students touch upon the subject but more from the "moral" view; how the activities of people in the society can cause the diseases, and it isn't explained explicitly. Because AIDS-has only been highlghted in the past few years, the present personal development course doesn't go into the disease and how it is caused. The college does have some literature about AIDS in the library which it received from the Health Department.

Parents' role to provide sex education — St Brendan's head "IT is the role of the parent to teach children bout sex education and the school is their back-up support," St Brendan's College principal Br Bob White said this week. The only form of sex education for students is taught during religious education classes. Sexually transmitted diseased (STD), preventative measures and the body are touched upon. Br White said it wasn't explained explicitly but was related to life. "We talk on the lifestyles of different people in the society and how many diseases are a product of the way some people live today," he said. Any information relating to sex education comes from the Health Department and the school has no other literature available to students.

Condoms on display in two Coast chemists to save embarrassment STEWART and Brumms Chemist has displayed condoms for a couple of years and said it had avoided embarrassing moments for customers and staff. "You will get the painfully shy person on the one hand and, on the other hand, the real loud skite who come in the shop and buy condoms over the counter," Duncan Stewart said. The shop had condoms displayed before AIDS became an'issue and, although it has been slight, Mr Stewart said, an increase in the sales of condoms had been noticed. "People can now come into the shop grab a pack of condoms and put the correct amount of money on the counter and leave," Mr Stewart said. Stewart and Brumms hasn't had any information on AIDS displayed but said it would look into having pamphlets available. 0


FULL display on front shelves is given to condoms in Ken Sheard's chemist. Mr Sheard has displayed the condoms since he has had the shop which is now just over two years. And, depending on the age group, Mr Sheard has found people aren't as embarrassed as they were three to four years ago, but he puts this down to a number of reasons, including the easy access to condoms in the shop. Mr Sheard said since AIDS had became an issue in Australia he had only noticed a small increase in condoms being sold to people.

Bayview Tower News & Views THE first thing I would like to do this week is thank everybody from Sue and Col Turton's wedding for all the wonderful compliments which they gave us on the reception we held for them in the Sails Restaurant on Saturday night.

SAVEMORE Pharmacy chemist Merryl Boneham said the shop keeps its condoms under the counter simply because of a lack of shelf display area. "We would display them if there was the room but space prevents us doing so and customers have to ask for the condoms," she said. Mrs Boneham said this causes some embarrassment among boys and some girls have to ask for the items. "Their friends stand by and laugh but generally our chemist assistants are used to this and cope with shy and embarrassed people coming in to ask for condoms," she said. Information in the form of pamphlets was available but the chemist has run out and is still awaiting another batch to put in their information display unit. Mrs Boneham said an additional book issued to chemists could be looked at by people wanting further information. 0 0 D

HIGGINS Pharmacy proprietor David Higgins said condoms were kept in a draw mainly due to the lack of space in his shop. The major reason was shelf space but Mr Higgins said condoms were kept in draws for years and it's just out of habit he still stores them this way. "Only occasional people seem to be embarrassed," Mr Higgins said. "Most people aren't afraid to ask for condoms if they can't see them anywhere in the shop." Mr Higgins said after AIDS was beginning to hit the news, his shop initially had an upsurge in condom sales, but he said this has now decreased and little or no increases were noticed. The chemist does have some literature on sexually transmitted diseased but no particular information can be found on AIDS in the pamphlet display area. 0

It was so pleasing for so many people from so many places to take the time to sincerely thank me and all my staff for a beautiful evening. EASTER BUNNY... YES, it won't be long before the Easter Bunny starts laying its eggs. With the school holidays and the long weekend almost upon us, let's not forget that good old Capricorn Coast hospitality for the many visitors that will be arriving soon. Remember to smile! This holiday period is shaping up to be a busy one so make sure to speak to us soon for your special holiday bookings for accommodation, the Restaurants or functions. I'll keep you updated on any special event that will be coming up to help you celebrate the holiday season in style at Bayview Tower. CLUBS... BAYVIEW Tower is soon to start a Beer, Beef and Burgundy Club for all ages. You'll be hearing more about this from your friends as we develop a social club to take the routine out of mid-week blues. We also hope to organise a businessman's luncheon club along the same lines. It's a chance for poeple of all ages and walks of life to have something to look forward to each month. As. these clubs get organised, we have some more ideas for other social clubs to provide some interest for everyone. BAY ROOM... ONCE again, don't forget the Bay Room is now opened for your daily desires ... from Breakfast to Afternoon tea with the delightful beachside atmosphere at Bayview Tower. That's all for now. See you all soon. Until next week.

DISPLAY space is another problem for the Emu Park Pharmacy ... and, out of habit, pharmacist Margaret Fraser said condoms were kept in a draw and not displayed on the counter. Most of the people entering her chemist weren't embarrassed to buy condoms over the counter and the chemist assistants did not become embarrassed when asked for condoms. There are no available pamphlets in the shop, but Mrs Fraser said she expected information from the Community Health Centre to arrive and it would be put out on display.

Three ways to avoid spreading AIDS Doctor A COAST doctor said this week there were three ways in which a person could avoid spreading AIDS. The doctor said abstinence from sex, one constant sexual partner and the use of barrier methods such as condoms and diaphragms were ways to avoid speeding the disease. "I* is important that both the heterosexual and homosexual understand AIDS is a sexually transmitted disease (STD much more lethal tha most STDs because it is the only untreatable one," the doctor said. The doctor listed the major sexually transmitted diseases as being syphilis, gonorrhea, non-specific urethritis, herpes, "crabs" ... and the latest being AIDS. The organisms have to live in the body fluids. The AIDS virus, once outside, dies quickly unlike hepatitis germs which can live outside the body and be spread more easily. The doctor said Coast doctors investigated and treated STDs and there was also an STD clinic in Rockhampton at the Base Hospital. Medicare will pay all laboratory investigation costs for those people needing them.

TYRER PARK regulars will be surprised when racing resumes on April 8. A massive reconstruction of the track and drainage has been undertaken since the Yeppoon Amateur Racing Club last raced on January 6. In the home straight, the racing surface has been lifted about one metre, which was about the height of the old running rail. However, in some of the lower parts, up to 1.7 metres of soil has been added to the original surface. All the soil was borrowed from inside the track and in making a large drain outside the track down the back straight. The borrow area inside the track has been walled and this will result in a sizeable expanse of water stretching from near the winning post to halfway down the straight. Seven rows of concrete pipes have been laid where the water enters the track area and the outflow is nine rows of pipes wide. The track proper will be railed inside and out in a Colourbond product and the old running rail used to provide an inside training track. The track proper will be seeded at the appropriate time in order to provide a grass track at the earleist possible opportunity. In order to be certain that everything will be spot-on for the Club's first $10,000 race, the running of the Patience Park Silver Bootee Stakes for two-year-olds has been put back a week from its original date and will now be run on April 15. The feature of the first meeting on April 8 will be the running of a qualifying division of the Foster's Country Cup over 1200 metres. This event, which is for horses eligible for Park Stakes class, is being conducted in

conjunction with the Rockhampton Jockey Club.. The top country qualifiers will contest a $6200 final at Callaghan Park on Easter Monday, April 20. Also, on April 8, the YARC will conduct two two-year-old Maiden Handicaps over 900 metres. These two events, one for colts and geldings and the other for fillies, will be worth $1500 each. The YARC has framed two five-event programmes for April 8 and 15 at which more than $20,000 in prizemoney and trophies will be distributed. The Patience Park Silver Bootee Stakes attracted an entry of 94 horses, including the early stars, Geodesy, Must Be Time and Vain Sister/ Nominations for the first meeting close next Wednesday, the weights will be declared on Friday, April 3 and accepances taken at 10am on Monday, April 6.

Governor wants to meet children while on Coast El CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

Park for drinks and biscuits while the Governor and his party have afternoon tea." The children and Coast residents will then be able to meet the Governor informally in the park. "Sir Walter Campbell and Lady Campbell are noted for their interest in children. The Governor is patron of the Bush Children's Home and the Scouts and Lady Campbell is the Girl Guides' patroness. "We haven't put a time limit on the informality in the park ... that's up to the Governor." Sir Walter Campbell and Lady Campbell will go directly to Capricorn Iwasaki Resort after the reception. A dinner has been organised at the resort that night and invitations were sent out to all shire organisations to send representatives. "The shire has footed the bill for the informal afternoon tea for the children ... some of them will travel two hours to get here. But the dinner at Capricorn Iwasaki will be paid for by each representative individually or their group," Cr Bowen said. "This visit is a wonderful chance for us all to show the Governor what a beautiful place we live in. He travels all over Queensland and with the good impression from our young people we hope he will always remember Livingstone Shire ... and tell everyone else." Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sergeant lc Ken Tanzer will be the afternoon's Master of Ceremonies and Morag Clay will take that position for the evening's dinner. Yeppoon Town Hall will be decorated with banners from shire schools and organisations.

Yeppoon police concentrating efforts on under-age drinkers YEPPOON police have been concentrating their efforts on under-age drinking and related offences in recent weeks. Officer-in-charge Sergeant lc Ken Tanzer said this week the police were involved in an on-going process of checking under-age persons seeking admittance to hotels. The police have found a number of persons affected by liquor walking the streets of Yeppoon at late hours. Under-age drinkers, any person under 18 years of age, cannot enter a licensed hotel but are permitted in the lounge area of the hotel providing they don't drink liquor and are accompanied by a parent or adult. If a licensee or any employee suspects or believes a person to be under 18 years they

may require him or her to furnish a certificate of age. Subsequently, if the person fails to furnish a certificate or furnishes false information they could be subject to a penalty up to $200 should they be convicted before a court, Sgt Tanzer said. The same penalties apply when a minor is found drinking on any licensed premises and likewise any person who supplies under-age persons can be fined up to $200 for the offence. Sgt Tanzer said police had stopped 15year-olds coming out of licensed premises affected by liquor and the police believe a lot of offences caused by these teenagers, such as damage to property, are quite often related to liquor. If a licensee knowingly sells liquor to under-age people he can be penalised and if it is a common occurrence the Licensing Commission in Brisbane reviews the matter and could revoke the liquor licence. Sgt Tanzer said when permits were issued to licensees by the Licensing Commission, one of the conditions is that no person under 18 years of age can be permitted in the areas when entertainment is provided. he said this meant the discos held at Coast hotels were not open to anyone under 18 years. Also, any person found drinking in public places and causing inconvenience or found damaging private property, can be charged. Sgt Tanzer said the police didn't want to destroy a person's fun but if disregard for other members of the community was shown they wouldn't hesitate to stop the person.

LI By Capricorn Coast Chamber Commerce and Industry president John Peach IT is unfortunate that once again Yeppoon is the subject of derogatory media statements and worse because these were contained in the national promotional supplement 'Queensland '87' in last Friday's Australian. The writer, Elizabeth Johnston, is well known for comment at the beginning and end of her articles and would really be the last person I would engage to write 'promotional' material. I can well remember her critical and fairly hostile style before stage one of the Iwasaki Resort was started. I am pleased she now admits the dire predictions she then publicised about the project have not eventuated. In fact, this latest article was highly complimentary of the resort. This was not the case for the town of Yeppoon! However, "Beauty is altogether in the eye of the beholder" and vice versa, there is no way to outlaw criticism and she was not the only one unimpressed with Yeppoon, especially in those earlier days. It is a pity that her dislike of Yeppoon from what she then observed has not lessened despite some obvious improvements. However we must consider why! Is the beachfront at Yeppoon "still a vista of run-down fibro holiday shacks with spectacular views across to the Keppel islands" as her article states? Is it still "shack city by the sea" as she concludes in the last paragraph? Do critical outsiders re-visiting here judge we have not done much to enhance a naturally attractive area with good buildings and good planning? Certainly the zoning about 13 years ago of the many allotments along Farnborough Road to Kerr Street to Tourist Residential

and Residential C (high rise) was well intended but only one Tourist Residential has arisen since! What has been the encouragement during 13 years to big investment there? Even the proposed improvements to the narrow untidy road and the equally untidy foreshore and caravan park have been loudly opposed. Would-be developers faced very high offsite charges, including in one case, I believe, a $50,000 road contribution. Nothing has happened and no extra revenue. Anzac Parade, our front window 'dress circle', in the same period has seen one new building and one change of name! Why is this? The only recent proposal for big improvement, which first entailed the closure of a small unused section of John Street, but retaining a right of way, was agin loudly opposed and eventually rejected. The beachfront side is definitely better now for part of its length and the sailing club would do any centre proud, but recent work is practically nil. I could go on but these are the things that prompt people like Elizabeth Johnston to make statements and probably give impressions to many others who say little. The power of the media is great when it is on your side- but, if something is strongly negative, that will be used too. Yeppoon has suffered from an excess of negative and often derogatory reporting over the years. While this is frustrating and objectionable to many, including me, the media will continue to spread their impressions however contrived some appear to be. While I object strongly to Elizabeth Johnston's dismissal of Yeppoon appearing where it did, we cannot continue to claim all as "media bias". We should look seriously at the causes of bad impressions and do positive things to correct them. Otherwise, we meekly accept the slot in which we are often placed and live with it, along with our reputation. Is this what the majority here want, or can we finally pull together and produce the enthusiasm and well-being that I know nearly all would prefer right now and even more so in the future for our children?

He is typical of the people who fought Japanese developer, Mr Yohachiro Iwasaki, and the Queensland Government over plans announced 14 years ago for what was then to be a $100 million resort at the edge of a quiet fishing and holiday village. The beachfront of Yeppoon is still a vista of run-down fibro holiday shacks with spectactular views across to the Keppel Islands.

Dr AS 'SHACK CITY BY THE SEA L„..aises many aspects (the gardens, restaurants, swimming pool with grotto, superb 18-hole golf course and more). An aggressive which "now refuses to take no for an answer when he demands food from guests" is core pared with the attitude of Yeppoon locals toward Mr Iwasaki in the early 1970s. There is more information about the resort, more praise, then comes the last two paragraphs: The resort has made little difference to the township of Yeppoon. So 15 years after the first fears were voiced of a Japanese takeover and hopes were held high for a boom in this sleepy village, the situation appears to be

unchanged in Yeppoon. It is still shack city by the sea.

Publicity such as this cannot be dismissed lightly. The Capricorn Coast Mirror decided to give space to Coast business and tourist leaders to have their say. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen was also invited to reply but his agenda this week did not provide enough free time for a considered answer. Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry president John Peach; Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation secretary Brian Hooper and Capricorn Tourism and Development Organisation Coast branch president Hubert Murray have replied.

Capricorn Coast one of the jewels in the crown of Capricorn 0 By Capricorn Tourism and Development Organisation (Capricorn Coast branch) president Hubert Murray

YEPPOON is not a "shack city by the sea" and neither is the Capricorn Coast another Gold Coast. The Capricorn Coast is one of the 'jewels in the crown of Capricorn' and together with the combined promotional effort by Capricorn Iwasaki, Great Keppel Island and Capricorn Tourism and Development Organisation, the secret of our special piece of paradise is now in the market-place in Queensland, the rest of Australia and overseas. There are a number of factors to be realied when confronted with articles written by visiting journalists. Firstly, if that is the way they see our town and development is there any truth in their analysis? But we must remember they are reporting something as they see it, compared with areas such as Cairns or the Gold Coast. For successful promotion we have to be brutally honest in stating what we have to offer. For starters the Capricorn Coast does not have five-star accommodation, no surf, no large entertainment complexes catering for the high-spending tourist. Instead we do have large, long, safe beaches overlooking the islands of Keppel Bay and an unsurpassed climate, a friendly lifestyle with a value-for-money — targetted at the middle of the market — holiday destination, just to mention a few. But of equal importance is for our guests to be treated by the locals as we expect to be treated when we travel. If we want our tourists to return for their next holidays with their friends, 85 per cent of all promotion is by word of mouth, so potentially every person involved in a business or staff is an ambassador for the Capricorn Coast. The Gold Coast has been a tourist destination for in excess of 20 years due to its proximity to larger populations. Cairns has become a major tourist destination in only the last few years due to the impact of the international airport. But the Capricorn Coast and the Capricorn Region in general, is really only now being recognised. Therefore with the foundations now laid, the Capricorn Coast is naturally on the threshold of the major influx of development this area deserves. Mr Iwasaki realised our potential 15 years ago when he decided to build the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort here instead of somewhere else in the world. He is creating a resort with local construction and staff at his pace

❑ By Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation secretary Brian Hooper ELIZABETH Johnston in the Australian

article, part of 'Queensland '87', on Friday presented a factual but hard-hitting report. Regretably, the few comments she makes about Yeppoon arc discrediting. It is quite evident her two/three references to Yeppoon are a fillip or location guide to her story on Iwasaki. To some extent one cannot deny that the old houses fronting the highway/beach to Iwasaki are far from eye-catching. Unfortunately, this is largely all the Iwasakl visitor sees on his way to the resort ... except for our new Bayview Tower and some well presented holiday units. However, to idehtify Yeppoon as "shack city" is more than unkind. If Yeppoon is a shack city there are plenty of seaside towns in New South Wales and Victoria that would be well ahead in the 'shack' identification queue. Elizabeth Johnston could have been somewhat softer in her comments and could have made reference to the fact that Yeppoon on the Capricorn Coast is one of the prettiest spots in Australia. She commented on its blemishes but failed to comment on its overall beauty which far outweighs a "shack city by the sea"

(within the perimeters of the franchise agreement) and as he wants it, and I suppose if any of us wished to spend that amount of our money here or in another country we deserve the right to spend it as we see fit. Obviously Mr Iwasaki's building designs are as he perceives a Japanese would enjoy, and, after all, it is his concept and not anyone else's. If there is any problem at all with the speed of his development, it is not with Mr Iwasaki but with people outside hoping to tag along and get some spin-off along the way. Therefore, it is up to the rest of the area to co-operate and work together for a common cause, to attract other complementary and new developments for our children to have a job in the area in which they like to live.

If you haven't heard about the scheme before ... the books are instead of wreaths on Anzac Day and are presented to the library in your name via the RSL. The best part is that you can choose from a wonderful array of books and they will only cost you, in some cases, half the normal cost. That's because the books are sponsored. So, even if you can't see your way clear to be at the Anzac Day service you can still call into the library and choose a book. It really is a wonderful idea because our library will be enlarged and the Anzac Day service will be remembered. o o o DATE CLAIMER: Yeppoon Lapidary Club will host the 1987 Annual Competition and Gemshow on August 15 and 16 in Yeppoon Town Hall.

The brownies were among a group of about 40 school-of-the-air students who had come to the Coast for a 10-day holiday camp at Cooee Bay Recreation Council Camp. Because of their isolation these brownies have never been to a 'live' brownie meet and seen one function. They enjoyed watching a brownie enrolment and participated in games played by the girls and their leaders. At the end of the day the school-of-the-air brownies signed a tablecloth and thus formed a 'friendship tablecloth'. Yeppoon brownies learnt that the schoolof-the-air brownies dress in uniform despite having classes over the radio. These isolated girls have brownie 'meets' as part of the curriculum and not as an afterschool activity. D

Neale Royal flushed with excitement '-\„„/ IN the Capricorn Coast A grade squash fixtures played on Wednesday night Neale Royal broke a long drought when he defeated John. Briggs for the first time in fixture playing in two seasons. fc: With Neale serving for the match, the mammoth rally ensued, which saw Neale on his knees and John take the serve. John served to take, the score to eight all and Neale, feeling the pinch, called a short game. The gamble paid off and Neale not only won the match 3-0, but managed to save the night for his team ... All the President's Men and His Wife, with a two rubbers all, nine games to seven result. Other players to put up good results were Chris Hacker who extended Bernard Lacey to a 9-10 in the fifth result, Peter Gordon who scraped up in four against Ian Atkinson with two 10-8 wins and Ellen Farr who played a very controlled match to defeat Ray Campbell in four. The Capricorn Coast Squash Rackets Association is trialling the new amendments to the rules under direction from the Queensland Association. The changes are: 90 seconds between games and one service only, that is, no single faults. "It appears that the changes will he well received once markers and referees become more familiar with them," association spokesman John Briggs said. The Rum Cup' is being contested tomorrow, Sunday, and any players who would like to participate in the social day against the Rockhampton club can turn up at the Capricorn Coast Squash Centre at 10am for a full day's 'play'. Social Hitters defeated Mighty Macks, 3-1: reserve Lyn Witts v Warren Royal 1-3; Peter Gordon def Ian Atkinson 3-1; Bernard Lack/ def Chris Hacker 3-2; Clay Nothling def Gordon Roberts 3-1. Team One defeated Mariners 4-0: Len Keily def reserve May Briggs 3-0; Glen Ward def Roger Dale 3-1; Chris Briggs def Mery Leslie 3-2; Tony Smith def Brett Stewart 3-0.

Swim championships


CAPRICORN Coast Swimming Club finishes its season on Wednesday with its first annual club championships. The presentation night will officially end the season on Tuesday, April 7 with trophies and supper. The supper includes free iceblocks, cordial and sweets for the children. "We expect the night presentation night to be a great success and ask all members to bring a plate," spokesman Roma Brettell said. "The committee thanks everyone who helped during the season. "The Bushido Judo Club has given us a donation of $600 towards equipment and we particularly thank Mike McCallum of Pizza Pizzazz for his large donation, also for equipment," Mrs Brettell said.

Yeppoon Seagulls play Blackwater at showground Sunday afternoon YEPPOON Seagulls will play South Blackwater at the showgrounds this Sunday, in another game of the CQ Group Football Competition. Caught on the hop with a midweek Reserve Grade game after the match at Etna Creek, the Seagulls were nearly at sea against the students of the CIAE. In the first half of the game Yeppoon was 16-6 behind at the break. That probably explains why coach Greg Shick was hoarsevoiced during the second half. Todd Sleeman scored the try and Mick Pengilly converted. For Institute, Jim McGuire, Anthony Rab'l and Joe Serrurier scored tries and Graig Gobson converted two of them. Newcomer Mick Allen opened the Seagulls run in the second half, followed by Terry Hansen, Don Cameron and John Pidgeon. Pengilly converted three of them and also kicked a field goal to produce a final score of 29-16 to give Seagulls Reserves a win. After Wednesday night, Yeppoon were playing again on Sunday. Reserve Grade had the breakfast show and notched another victory. At half-time the score was even, 6-all, Seagulls' points coming from a Glen Holland try converted by Pengilly. Coach Schick told the team not to let Brothers win, and they followed his instructions.

The game ended 24-18 in favour of Yeppoon. Try scorers in the second half were Pengilly (1) and Shane Weir (2) and 3 goals by Pengilly. Geoff Schweikert's A Graders didn't fare so well against the Leprechauns. Brothers produced a strong attack and had 14 pOints on the board before Mick Stafford produced four points for Seagulls. The score was 21-8 in favour of the Brethren at half time. In the second half the score got to a favourable 21-20, and it looked liked Yeppoon had a chance after a runaway try by Kelly McGuire and a charging try by Weir. But success was not to be and the final result was 45-20 in favour of Brothers. Seagulls points came from tries by Stafford (2), McGuire, and Weir and 2 goals by Clay Lennox. Shane Weir's tally for the day was 3 tries -2 in Reserve Grade and 1 in A. This Sunday, Yeppoon is at home to South Blackwater in the CQ Group Football competition. Ian Brazier is the only player in the CQ Capras playing North Queensland at Mackay this Sunday, so the Seagulls A Grade side will be strengthened by the return of Steve Stafford, Wayne Alberts and Col McPherson to the team. Yeppoon is expecting a big crowd to barrack at the showground on Sunday.

Senior Swans' first taste of action THE Yeppoon Australian Rules senior sides had their first taste of action on Saturday, when the club staged an inter-club practice match. The Swans have been fortunate to retain most regular A grade players from last year and all signs points to another successful year. The game was a rough and tumble affair, although it lacked the commitment of a fixture match. That aside, new coach Col Jamieson must have been pleased with the system and fire shown by all players. With a number of players absent with work commitments, the headliners of last year, Greg Brown, Darren Kemp and "Professor" Munns, kept the enthusiastic crowd enthralled. Owing to the openers of the game, all players contributed at some stage, but those who caught the eye more than most were

David "Side Step" Chapman, Brian Cruickshank, who never stopped running, Gary Fraser and a resurrected Ben Kelly. Phil Munro won the best groomed player again. It was great to see Alex Herewane and Gary Hawke in action again. They're two great clubmen who would've been sorely missed had they decided to only be spectators this year. Making up the numbers on Saturday there was also a new young brigade with A grade aspirations. They were led by Tim Mynott and Mark Wiggington who showed they possess all the skills and seem assured of bright futures. Today (Saturday) the club hosts Parkana at the showgrounds in the first round of fixtures. The Reserves game kicks off at 12.45 and the A grade at 3.00pm. The canteen and beer booth will be operating as usual.

Under 12s in first basketball match PARENTS watched their under 12s participate in their first basketball game after 40 minutes basic coaching on Sunday. In a 10-minute game full of enthusiasm, White defeated Blue 8 to 2. David Target showed up some of the older players by hitting both his free shots after a foul in the key during the first half of the short game. Other scorers were Stephani Jones, Mary Bailey and Angela knight fro the Whites and Bailey and Angela Knight for the Whites and and Ben Boyd brought up the only score for the Blue. It was All Whites that dominated the Bombers in the next under 15 game, particularly in the first half when they led 9 to 2. Fourteen-year-old James Turner's superior height made a big difference under the basket but Ronald Stockley was undoubtedly player of the match with 11 of his team's 22 points. The girls followed with Mixed Nuts borrowing All Whites borrowing All Whites Dale Perrin to make up for an absent player. Shadows took the first half lead from a three pointer put up by Barbara Irwin despite good defence from Jane Airen. Shadows gave up their claim on the game with lack of concentration early in the second half causing errors and squandering a lot of possession, allowing Mixed Nuts a 10 to 4 advantage in the second half. The ladies got Mondays senior fixtures off to a slow start in the Seagulls/Cougars match. With a score of 8 to 6 at the brak, the girls must have been using the half to get their eye in. Forty points in the second half pushed the game along with Seagulls' Jenny Semple putting in a creditable 14 points. Leah Broderick used her height well to rebound strongly for Cougars. Brendan's Green, after a game swap with their co-team Gold, were the first to face the experienced Jim's Team. A gutsy performance by the boys couldn't hold out Jim's Russell Frew in the second half. Coach Adrian White certainly had a job ahead of him to develop a cohesive game plan for L'amour. Billabongs 43 to nil win says it all. The final game of the evening was the schools clash between Brendan's Gold and

Cobras. Lars Roberts kept up a vocal game and with good talking between team members Cobras bustled Brendan's out of the first half giving them enough lead to hold off a much better performance by the Golds in back half. Lean and lanky Kelvin Muspratt could develop into a strong asset for his team. Results: Sunday;Novices, White 8 def Blue 2; under 15; All Whites 22 def Bombers 8; Mixed nuts 16 def Shadows 12. Monday: Seagulls 32 def Cougars 22; Jim's Team 16 def Brendan's Green 10; billabongs 43 def L'amour 0; cobras 27 def Brendan's Gold 18.

Coast's second grade draws with Frenchville in cricket grand final THE Capricorn Coast second grade cricketeres grade did themselves and Yeppoon proud when they drew with Frenchville in the grand final. Unfortunately rain spoilt the game when there was nearly four hourslost on the first day and another hour lost on the second. On day one, play started at 2.30pm and Coast won the vital toss and sent Frenchville in to bat on a wet wicket. Coast got the early break-through when they had Frenchville 3 for 6. However it soon became evident that Frenchville were intent on occupying the crease for as long as they could. Because Frenchville were minor premiers, they only had to play off for a draw to win the premiership. Coast bowlers tried everything to dislodge the stubborn batsmen but the final wicket did not fall until midway through the final, mandatory 20 overs. Capricorn Coast did not even get the chance to have a bat. Bowling figures for the Coast were Wayne Kitchener, 4 for 54 from 30; Steve Carte 1 for 37 from 19; lan Anderson 0 for 43 from 21; Jeff Ingle 1 for 36 from 20; Keith Simmler 2 for 36 from 12.2; Ken Ogilvie 2 for 37 from 15 and Dennis Hinton 0 for 10 from 3. Out of the 120 overs that were bowled, 44 of them were maidens.

Coast won a trophy for being the leaders on the points table after the first round. They also did well with the individual trophies. Ian Anderson won the best bowlers trophy for 2nd grade group A and Ken Ogilvie won the best bowler for 3rd grade. Club Secretary Rick Robinson said the boys did well and it was unfortunate to lose a premiership in those circumstances. He also said that during the normal fixture rounds when the first day is washed out, the second day goes on time-limit so both teams get to bat the same length of time and a result is acheived on the first innings. This result goes on the team with the most runs at the end of their alloted time regardless of the amount of wickets lost. "When 'you consider that almost half the playing time was lost last week-end, maybe the Rockhampton cricket Associations should adopt this same ruling to govern grand-finals," he said. At least if both sides bat at least once, the result will be a decisive one and not a technical one. The Coast Cricketers will be playing in the Gracemere Pharmacy grand final against Easts this Sunday (tomorrow starting 2.30pm and this is a day/night game with 50 overs a side. This will be played at the North Rockhampton cricket grounds and will be the last game of the season.

DOG stories keep pouring in ... latest is about two mates walking a boxer dog on Farnborough Beach. One of the mates wishes to remain anonymous (for reasons that will become apparent) so, let's call them mate A and mate B. Mate A owns the dog (keep that in mind) and the dog is one of those happy-go-lucky animals that likes to let it all hang out. So, while A and B were walking along, dog does his own thing and runs everywhere. Unfortunately, two adults and two children are sitting on a log some distance away. Dog sees log and, because it's the nearest thing he can find to a tree on the beach, he sets off at a fast clip. Dog roars down beach and, while still on the move, lifts one rear leg from the sand and proceeds to relieve himself ... two adults and two children scatter. But it was too late, Boxer's aim is deadly and all four discovered that the Yellow Peril has nothing to do with Asian hordes. Situation was rapidly getting out of hand and Mates A and B start calling dog and whistling it ... to no avail. Finally, when A (who owns dog, remember) and B are close enough to sticky foursome to be recognised, A turns to B and says: "B, you really should train your dog!!!" Gosh, I'd like to think I could come up with a remark like that in the same situation! o o o BUMPER bar stickers usually drive me crazy ... most are so poorly designed you can't read them without having an accident while others are inane. But there's one floating around Yeppoon that sums up Australia at the moment: "I owe, I owe, it's off to work I go". The sticker is so right; we're being dwarfed by our debts!!! o o o HAS anyone seen a Joh for PM sticker? There are a couple around but they're certainly not as noticeable as could be expected. Maybe they were meant to be worn on the soles of white shoes!!! o o o WORD is getting around that Bob Hawke will pull an early election if he is running against John Howard. Malcolm Fraser tried the same stunt because he was running against Bill Hayden. We might soon see an example of failing to learn from history! ❑

YEPPOON Junior Aussie Rules had their first match of the year on Sunday and started out with three wins. Brothers were the opposition and didn't field under 11 squad so a scratch match was made up of Brothers under 13s against Yeppoon under 11s. Coach Shane Steele said the whole team played well and, as a result of this, no best players were named.

The under 13s started their season with a convincing win over Brothers with the final score reading Yeppoon 13-13-91 to Brothers 0-3-3. Both teams were short on players and ended up only playing with about 14 each. Best players for Yeppoon were Stephen Bent, Jason Geier, Grant Thorpe and Steven Phillips. It was the same in both the under 15s and under 17s. The under 15s squad was full strength and the final scores in this match were Yeppoon 21-9-135 to Brothers 1-3-9. Best players were Troy Tomkins, Jason Jamieson, Trent Thompson, Jason Dawes and Rod Chapman. The under 17s also fielded a full team and soon had the game under control. The further the game progressed the better our team went. The final scores were Yeppoon 16-17-113 to Brothers 1-1-7. The best players were Tim Mynott, Mark Wigginton, Chris Woods, Grant Boyd, Jeff Richter and also a top effort by Brad Moran and Aaron Trevis. Yeppoon have a bye next week so there will be no junior games played. •

AIDS is not a topic for laughter ... but there was a show on TV on Tuesday night about the subject and a NSW education boss said: "I don't like to see condoms floating around the classroom. I think there are better uses for them." Well, you can't argue with that!!! o o o DIDN'T see this one ... but it came from a very, very good source. Seems the son ofa prominent National Party VIP was attending the official opening of the Tartrus Weir this week and, when standing with a group of people having a chat, was suddenly drenched when a gust of wind flipped up a corner of a marquee emptying gallons (litres?) of rainwater that had collected in an earlier downpour. Seems the VIP's son copped the lot. Oh well, his father has been copping 'buckets' for years and it's water off a chook's back • to him!!!
