TEMPERS are flaring at Emu Park over behind-the-scenes attempts to use money raised from the public to build a 25-metre swimming pool at the primary school rather than in Bell Park as always intended. For the past five years, a group of dedicated volunteers have worked solidly toward raising money for a public swimming pool. Right from the start of the Don Ireland Swimming Complex Committee, in 1982, the plan was to raise the necessary money to build a 25-metre in-ground swimming pool for public use in the centre of Emu Park. In June, 1984, the committee's efforts to obtain a pool site were rewarded when Livingstone Shire Council signed a lease providing land in Bell Park, next to the tennis courts and the proposed Emu Park Ambulance Station. The land gave new impetus to fund-raising. Executive members were photographed at the site and a sign went up calling on people to make a donation to help build the pool. Today, just five years after the start of fund raising, the committee has almose$70,000 and a quotation to build the complex in Bell Park for $100,000. In the committee's first annual report, the then president said the aim was to complete the pool by 1988, to tie in with Australia's bicentenary. At the time, it looked like a farfetched hope. Today, with the bicentenary just months away, it looks a lot more erfajikthat the pool will be at least started, if'niatIbi.iiKt`sext- year. But the committee, which Unttlhip year had been a smooth-working groitilVappears to have split. Some committee members blocked to discover that at one meeting,--40e:was taken to- build the pool- at Emu me School.: pparentls the actual votix heatedifh clashe§1Op. hoth sides In the-erid, two-VOteS were taken - pool site and, both limes, the Bell Park site =won ... but later- the meeting was declared invalid. It was obvious to some committee members from this vote that it would not be long before something happened to bring the site subject to the boil. As a result, both sides have been consulting solicitors. The Capricorn Coast Mirror has, for the past few weeks, been hearing reports from both sides. Nothing was published in the hope that differences would be settled and an amicable relationship resume among the volunteers working toward building a pool for Emu Park. Such a settlement does not seem likely following reports from some people about other people "exceeding their authority" and letters which were expected to be tabled at the monthly meeting on Wednesday night this week.

So many side issues are surfacing that the original objective, raising money to build a pool for Emu Park, is in danger of being lost in a fur-flying fight. Briefly (very briefly), these are the two arguments for the two pool sites. 0 Bell Park, the original site for which rates have been paid since 1984, is in the middle of town; is accessible to everyone, including school pupils; will be so prominently placed that it will draw extra custom from tourists ... and more than $10,000 of the money donated has been earmarked specifically for Bell Park, nowhere else. 0 Emu Park State School grounds are proposed as the site because school children (expected to be the biggest user), would be close to the pool. Also, the Education Department apparently will provide funds toward what has been raised to make the pool a reality. In addition, the Education Department would pay for part of the maintenance of the pool. Both sides obviously have valid reasons for their Stand ... and only one can win. Both groups have a lot on their side. They were involved in the preliminary planning; worked toward finding a popular site; gained a lease to the land they considered the best possible and have worked non-stop toward achieving their objective. The pro Bell Park group believe if the pool is built in the school grounds it will be lost, forever, to the town. They point to events surrounding the raising of public money for a ,pool in Yeppoon which was eventually built at the State School ... and the subsequent need' to build a second pool for the town. The pro-school site people say there is nothing to fear in putting the pool on Education Department land. Rules have been changed in recent years and the pool would always be accessible to the public. If the committee cannot sort itself out, the Capricorn Coast Mirror has a suggestion ... we will make space available to both sides to present their case. Both cases will be presented in the same issue so that one side does not have the advantage of seeing the other side's report. Maybe, after a public airing, the decision can be made on what site to use. If the decision cannot be made by the committee ... it should be put to the public. After all, it is public money that will build the pool ... where-ever it goes!

Road signs safety measure at Farnborough school APPROVAL was given at last month's council meeting to erect two directional hazard signs at the junction of Byfield Road and Hinz Avenue at Farnborough.

400-BERTH MARINA AIMED AT VISITING BOATS A PROPOSED 400-berth marina for Ross and Figtree Creeks in Yeppoon will cater to visiting yachts and provide permanent moorings for sizeable Capricorn Coast pleasure craft... but it won't provide for permanent dwellers. Tom Stephenson, business development manager of Wilkins & Davies Marinas Pty Ltd, said his company, as a general rule, did not tolerate people living on boats in its marinas. There are no plans to provide berths for commercial fishing vessels. If built, the marina will provide 400 berths for pleasure craft ranging in size from 10.5m to 20m. Mr Stephenson said boat owners would be provided with a "safe boating haven in cyclonic conditions"... or, as it is described

Permanent dwellers not usually tolerated in a company . press release issued last Friday, "all tide and safe access". The proposal provides for a watchfront restaurant and shopping area in Appleton Park servicing both residents and tourists. The whole of Appleton Park is incorporated in the proposed marina but Mr Stephenson said Yeppoon Hospital was not part of the development. (A rumour swept Yeppoon last week about the proposed marina. It was claimed that Yeppoon Hospital would be closed to make way for the development.) Mr Stephenson said the land-based development in Appleton Park would incorporate a club, chandlery, commercial and accommodation facilities. Provision would be made for lift-out facilities for boat repair an maintenance. "Our policy is to supplement existing business in an area rather than duplicate them," Mr Stephenson said. (His company has built, or is in the process of building, six marinas in New Zealand and Australia and said in the press release it had several others planned). Mr Stephenson said the company was now involved with the development of the Townsville and Shute Harbour marinas. He said the Yeppoon proposal was seen by the company to provide "badly needed facilities

for the boating community on the Capricorn Coast". It: Would significantly improve the visua.....) appearance of the area. * Works associated with its development would also help to stabilise foreshore erosion and replace sand lost on the main beach. * Would provide all-tide and safe access for a wide range of craft sailing in the Keppel Island area. Mr Stephenson said the company saw the Keppel Islands becoming a popular alternative to the Witsumdays in future. "Application is now being sought from the Land Administration Commission and the Department of Harbours and Marine for a Priority Investigation Lease to undertake more detailed studies on the feasibility of this marina development," he said. "In undertaking these investigations, environmental, economic and engineering matters will be considered carefully." Mr Stephenson issued his press release after meeting representatives of fishing and environmental groups on Friday morning and afternoon in the Livingstone Shire Council chambers. Wilkins & Davies will be using consultants Cameron McNamara to undertake most of the investigation work on the site. Rockhampton office manager Bill Watkins and planning and environment division associate Brian Roberts were with Mr Stephenson during talks at council on Friday.

THE question that has been openly pondered about Yeppoon's worst-kept secret, the proposed marina, is how does such a project make money? Tom Stephenson, Wilkins & Davies Marinas Pty Ltd business development manager, gave a clue to the economics on Friday. When asked how much it would cost for one of the proposed 400 berths, Mr Stephenson said, at first, his company had not gone into costs in sufficient depth to give an answer. But, when asked how much berths cost in the Townsville marina, which his company is developing, he said a 12 metre craft mooring would cost $21,900 for a long-term lease. In the Townsville case, the long-term lease would be for 35 years. If similar charges were applied to Yeppoon, the 400 proposed berths would return almost $9 million. In addition, the company would have returns from the proposed shops, restaurants and lift-out facilities. The figure of $15 million has been nominated in press releases and statements as the development costs for Yeppoon, but Mr Stephenson said on Friday it was not necessarily what the finished costs would be. Far more detailed costings would be required before his company could be specific about development costs. It is for this reason the company has applied for a Priority Investigation Lease. The proposal, so far, is in the "very early days" stage. Stage one starts with the Priority Investigation Lease. The company hopes to get the lease "in the next few months" and it will then have 18 months in which to investigate the site. If the company decides to go ahead, it will

then apply for Development Lease. This would initially be for 30 years with the right of renewal in perpetuity. The marina, or another similar one, has been a "secret" for at least 12 months. It was still a "secret" last month when Livingstone Shire Council discussed the Wilkins & Davies proposal in committee. It was approved as a "concept" in committee and councillors were sworn to secrecy ... it became public knowledge the same week when shire chairman Cr John Bowen announced it to more than 300 people attending a beachfront land auction at Zilzie on Easter Saturday. On Friday, Brian Roberts of Cameron McNamara, the consultants who will be carrying out investigations into the marina's feasibility, said he knew of two applications which had been lodged since 1984 for roughly the same proposed development area. Mr Roberts said Cameron McNamara had started work on the latest proposal in November last year and there had been more interest in it since January of this year. He said investigations to be carried out would determine a more precise cost of the proposal ... but there were so many grey areas to be looked at. The "all-weather and all-tides" aspect of the proposal would be a significant factor in the final costing and the "engineering and hydraulic aspects" would be the "lynch-pin". Mr Roberts said full investigations may show it to be a "disaster," in which case it -• would be left for someone else to go on with i'09 ... but the investigations were the first step toward what could prove to be a Capricorn Coast development second in significance to only. the completed Capricorn Iwasaki Resort.

0 ABOVE: A drinking straw shows size of tent peg hole in showground.

BROKEN glass, sharp welding rods and flyblown bones left on the playing field at Yeppoon Showground last week have highlighted the need for specialised playing fields on the Capricorn Coast. Junior aussie rules volunteers tried for three days to have the ground properly cleaned before giving up and doing the job themselves on Sunday morning ... only a few hours before two matches were played. The mess was not visible to the untrained eye. When the circus, which had left the ground on Wednesday, cleaned up, it apparently removed what would normally be considered mess. There were no papers flying around the ground, no beer bottles scattered on the playing surface. But Junior Aussie Rules officials took a closer look because they were responsible for the safety of more than 100 Coast footballers. What they found caused immediate concern. There were 103 holes caused by tent stakes being removed. Junior club president

0 ABOVE: A handful of dangerous objects; welding rods and bones on showground.

Ross Mclndoe and official Jim Bailey said young boys would have been badly injured had they stepped in the holes during play. Broken glass, mainly stubbie bottles, was scattered in many places on the playing surface. Jagged edges lay in waiting for unsuspecting players. Used welding rods, about 10cm long, were found in two places in the middle of the playing arena ... and with them was associated welding slag and a large lump of jagged plate steel that had been cut with an oxy torch. Dozens of sticks, probably used for fairy floss, littered the playing surface and areas of the sidelines. Cut pieces of barbed wire, two huge bones covered with maggots, and dozens of slivers of bones were also embedded in the playing surface. Aussie rules officials, faced with a major clean-up operation, contacted Yeppoon Show Society, the group that controls the ground and had allowed the circus onto the playing surface. Show society president Brian Dorey was told of the mess and also told that circus personnel had lived in caravans parked around the playing surface. Waste water from the caravans had been spread around the ground. Certain Swans officials wanted to push the matter further but senior club president Bill Thomson and junior president Ross Mclndoe said they were in a "no-win" situation. "There are no other grounds available big enough for aussie rules," Mr Thomson said. "While it was unlikely that we would be told to leave the showground, we were hardly in a bargaining position. "The only answer is for junior sports groups to get their own grounds. There are more than 200 junior and senior aussie rules players on the Coast and we are working toward developing land to the rear of the Blue Dolphin Caravan Park. "But that won't happen overnight. It takes a lot of money, more than we have available. What is needed is for the Livingstone Shire Council to get involved with sport and start providing the facilities Coast sportsmen deserve." Mr Thomson said the rules club would be writing to Yeppoon Show Society calling on it to stop renting the showground to circuses or similar events. .

"We know the show will be held there. We're prepared for that. But we've spent thousands of dollars in cash and thousands of volunteer hours getting that playing surface to the barest minimum needed for playing," he said. "We don't want our investment in time and money to be thrown away by show society officials trying to raise piddling rentals from circuses." l=1 SEE LETTER — PAGE 7 'For all Holiday and Business arrangement') contact your local travel agent...

oa ilor ll 2M 1ii CHAIRMAN4SHIRE AS CHAIRMAN of Livingstone Shire Council, it has been 12 months since council appointed me to this position. In respect of that, I feel that with a coming budget in a period of tough econominc conditions, I should put together some facts and figures that should indicate how the Council stands.

0 By Cr John Bowen


Livingstone Shire Council Loans 1981 to 1987 inclusive 1

FINANCE The finance department is headed by the accountant, Denis Murphy. The General Rate increase has halved during the term of this council from 10.5 per cent in the budget down to 5.5 per cent in the 1986/87 budget. The Sewerage Rate has not increased and the amount of increase of the Capricorn Coast Water Rate has been reduced. The shire's debt liability has decreased. This is the first time, as seen on the attached graph, that this has occurred for many years. According to the Local Government. Department's Statistical Analysis Booklet, just released, the percentage of administration costs, being 5.6 per cent against the budget expenditure, shows that Livingstone is the lowest of the five local authorities listed in the immediate area. The interest and redemption on loans against the rate receipts show Livingstone and Broadsound Shires at 37 per cent, which again, is the lowest in the area. Council, during the last year, has won extra revenue over and above that which it normally receives from both the State and Federal Governments. Here are some examples: O Commonwealth Employment Programme for this year's Parks Beautification Project; $96,000. o Grants Commission increased from the anticipated amount of $669,000 to the amount received of $698,000. 0 Army Roads, an extra $40,000. O From the State Government, $40,000 extra for the drainage in the Charles Street area, and $61,000 extra from our submission for the subsidy on our Works Programme, the subsidy on our Works Programme, ie $127,000 increased to $188,000. o Council has been granted the project of $1,360,000 for works on the Coolcorra overpass on the Rockhampton - Emu Park Road. In addition to the direct benefit of these extras, the shire will benefit immensely from the State Government Main Roads project on the Rockhampton - Yeppoon and Byfield Roads, an amount totalling $11,500,000.

The council is also involved in the Causeway Bridge and Kinka Beach Study, which is also being financed by the State Government, the result of which will surely lead to ending the very dangerous bridge and erosion situations which presently exist.

WORKS DEPARTMENT The Works Department is headed by shire engineer Pat Murphy. The engineer is in charge of engineering, drafting, road works, drainage, parks and gardens, water, sewerage and subdivision of land.

Cr Bowen details 12 months' work in Livingstone Shire departments


experienced with the introduction of water meters. A 30 per cent reduction in consumption has been achieved which has resulted in saving of electricity costs, infrastructure and maintenance costs plus a major saving in upgrading costs, not forgetting the benefit to the ratepayers during the recent dry summer period by not having stricter water restrictions. Council is very pleased by the performance of the Engineering and works Department which has been faced with a tight budget this year and under the present circustances, is faced with an even tighter budget in the coming year. The council fully recognises that while the economy is stressed, we all have to take the strain throughout the community.

Inspectors No. 2159


Mr Murphy's responsibility in all the above fields and to advise counsil monthly, plus then carry out any directon of council as well as create forward planning reports for the vital infrastructural requirments of the shire, in money terms amounting to many tens of millions of dollars, into the future, is no easy task. For the past 12 months, Mr Murphy has managed to cope without an assistant engineer and council fully appreciated the fact that he has coped very well indeed under the circumstances. However, the council recognises the fact that Livingstone Shire always operated for the previous 12 years with a shire engineer plus an assistant engineer. The council has now resolved to engage an assistant engineer. A similar situation exists in the drafting office, where, since January, 1979, there were four draftsmen engaged until September, 1985 when Col Guy left the staff. Although council has managed to keep abreast of the day-to-day work of drafting, the future planning preparation of roads, streets, parks and all other infrastructure design requirements which are essential elements of good management and planning, which result in saving to you, the ratepayer, are behind schedule so council has now resolved to fill this vacancy. Here are some of the activities by the Works Department this year: o Upgrading of two sections of the Byfield Road: cost in the order of $270,000. o Construction and maintenance of shire roads: cost $2,100,000. o A total area of 42,500 square metres was constructed to bitumen sealed standard. o 2.5 kilometres of kerbng and channelling were completed. O A considerable length of gravel roads was resheeted. _ 0 Army roads maintenance works: $200,000. o Main Roads maintenance $320,000. O Main Roads Special Maintenance Programme: $160,000. O Drainage works varying from culvert to large schemes: $480,000. • Parks and Gardens Maintenance and development of new areas: $200,000. In addition to these, the first stage of the Emu Park Water Supply upgrading, designed and supervised by the Engineering Department, has been completed. Other upgrading works including the Sewerage System, has been undertaken. Council is now relocating services on the Byfield Road, to an estimated cost of $300,000. Other significant savings have been

John Milne, the chief building inspector, heads this department. The department now endeavours to process building applications in less than two weeks. • The department is aware of the difficulties in the building trade and endeavours to assist builders through processing applications quickly. Since the retirement of building surveyor Gordon Handley, council has not called for a replacement to fill this vacancy, instead, council engaged a second building inspector, Ken Hodby. This has resulted council giving a better service to both the genuine builder and the community in that with both inspectors working in the field, four inspections are now carried out during the construction of new dwellings. Council has not suffered from a major decrease in building approvals, as expeienced in other areas of the State. We are also becoming very well noted for all thedifferent styles and designs of new homes in the area. Council is also able to issue Show Cause Notices to have dilapidated buildings renovated or demolished that may be endangering people in the area.

PLANNING DEPARTMENT Council has resolved to fill the vacancy caused by Raul Weychardt's resignation in late 1985. After due consideration, the advantages of having an in-house town planner are numerous: o The ratepayers have ready access to town planning advice. o Major planning of the shire and its Strategic Plan has now commenced which means there would be an array of town planning considerations to be discussed over the coming months with someone who is here five days a week. o Having a town planner in-house may mean not having to replace the building surveyor who retired previously. A qualified architect/town planner would be able to act as the building surveyor when required. The combined effect of these changes will mean a much better service, while still keeping the total cost to the ratepayer down.

HEALTH SERVICES The Health Department is headed by health surveyor John Harmsworth. Immunisations: We are part of the national Measles Eradication Campaign and the success rate is indicated by the number of 111 injections being given this year. The number of diptheria/tetanus boosters given for this year is now 230. Water Sampling: Water sampling for chemical analysis is now being carried out quarterly. This testing is to determine any level of herbicides and pesticides in the water. Animal Control - Dogs: The new service using the CQSPCA has been operating most successfully for more than a year, with more than 1000 dogs registered for this financial year. Dogs being impounded number an average of 20 per month. Public Refuse Bins: A different style of refuse bin, attached to steel posts, is now under trial in some public areas. This new style of bin will help to keep our parks and public areas tidier.

ADMINISTRATION The new shire clerk, Jim Brown, has spent many hundreds of hours interviewing and researching council's administration prior to the council unanimously voting to adopt the abovementioned changes. It is very pleasing to me as the chairman, to have the changes occur by such agreement and that also includes the agreement of the staff. It is also very good to see the council vote unanimously on many major decisions such as the latest one, being the concept of a marina. This decision and many others make me feel that the council and staff are working well. Also, councillors may have different views on so many council matters (it would be a funny council if they did not). But I believe every councillor in Livingstone is genuinely giving their best for the benefit of the Shire and its community.

Bus operator warns ofb ott lenec k9 with designated Strand Hotel stop A BOTTLENECK situation could be created if buses continue to use the designated bus-stop in front of the Strand Hotel. Young's buses' Philip Young said this on Monday after the new stop had been used for less than a Week. Mr Young said the bus-stop was a good, but bad, idea because buses "did need a place marked out for buses to use" but he added the site of the stop would probably create a "hazard" with double-parking possibly becoming a problem. Buses in past years have been picking up passengers from outside the Westpac Bank, which is already marked with a no parking zone sign, but no provisions had been made to make it the 'official' bus stop. Other problems Mr Young sees with the bus stop is the 8am-5pm no parking zone which allows the buses access to the stop and makes it illegal for cars to park between those hours during the week. Mr Young said 24 services were made by his company from Monday to Friday; three before 8am and three after 5pm. He said a problem, and even a "dangerous situation," would occur with traffic and congestion in the area inside and outside the no parking hours. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said a petition for a bus stop had been sought, considered and obtained, and an area marked out to give bus drivers a designated area for passengers to alight or be collected. Mr Young agreed the stop had been needed in Yeppoon but traffic coming from the Bluff around to the main street; cars coming down from Bayview Tower area and

those from around the beachfront area could cause a problem ... and me area needed to be changed. He also said no prior warning had been given for the change of site. Cr Bowen said moves for the change had been underway for the past six months. Cr Bowen said the desired location for the bus stop had been outside Westpac Bank but traffic laws had deterred the council from making it the official bus stop. To have been made the official stop it would have to be a certain distance from the pedestrian crossing and after the Shire Engineer had measurements taken the no parking zone fell within the recommended distance. Cr Bowen said if the area marked out was seen to be unsuitable, at times,. the people involved should write to the shire clerk to have the problems looked into and if necessary altered. " As far as Cr Bowen is concerned, council was asked to provide a designated bus stop and obliged with the Strand Hotel stop and any problems with the area should be directed to the shire clerk.

church's 'parliament' has met away from Rockhampton. During its session, the Synod will consider several items of legislation including two from the national Synod of the Anglican Church. These concern the status of chaplains working in Australia's defence forces and the admission of members of other denominations into the Anglican Church. Among the reports, Synod will give considerable time to the results of last month's Rural Ministry Conference, seeking ways in which the church can best respond to the economic crisis and its resultant personal and family stress.

Bush children's `different' picnic A PICNIC with a difference will be held at the Royal Queensland Bush Children's home in Todd Avenue tomorrow, Sunday. Organisers have combined the annual fete with a picnic and the theme is yesterday and today. Hot damper, billy tea and all the usual stalls will be available for everyone from 1 lam with the official opening by Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen at noon. Cr Bowen will lead a team of five councillors in a tug-of-war against Rockhampton Mayor Ald Jim Webber and five aldermen. Other entertainment will include an auction; a dog-handling display by Etna Creek Prison. The Coast bush children's scheme is a charitable organisation and relies on fundraising to finance its running costs. Donations are needed for the stalls and the auction and volunteers will collect any goods. Contact the home, 39 1311, if you have any goods they could sell at the Jubilee Picnic. On average 30 children stay at the Coast home each intake with the changeover about every six weeks.

Bridge load limit? LIVINGSTONE Shire Chairman Cr John Bowen told last month's meeting the council had a strong case to put to the Main Roads Department about Fig Tree Bridge. One of the girders on Fig Tree Bridge, in Park Street, has failed. The failure prompted an investigation by Main Roads and it was considered the life of the bridge could be estimated at "possibly two years" and the council report said something would have to be done during the 1987/88 financial year. The shire engineer's report highlighted the "urgent need for consideration of funding for a new structure" at the section. In the recommendation to council, it was stated Main Roads be requested to advise council on the load limit of Fig Tree bridge. It further stated a cost-share arrangement for the replacement of the bridge be requested of Main Roads.

Cul-de-sac name LIVINGSTONE Shire Council decided at the April meeting to name the cul-de-sac off Evelyn Street at Lammermoor Beach. The cul-de-sac, created by the Dalebrook Pty subdivision, will be known as Rosslyn Close. Rosslyn Close had already been attached to the cul-de-sac by persons asking after services information and the council decided to adopt it as its official name.

YEPPOON Lions Club has been given permission to transfer council's special lease of land at Great Keppel Island to the club. • The club wanted to improve the standard of accommodation offered by the Youth Hostel on land leased by the club. For some years the Lions Club has run the hostel, in conjunction with the Youth Hostel Association, and in a letter to council the club requested the lease, which had been taken out in the name of Livingstone Shire Council, be put into the name of the Yeppoon Lions Club. The lease was -put in councils' name because of a law which disallowed the Lions Club to hold property. Since signing the lease, a new rule, initiated in 1981, gives the Lions club the power to hold land. The club wants to acquire additional land from the Lands Administration Commission on Great Keppel Island but firstly have to obtain the title to the leased land. Cr Geoff Cue moved that the council offer no objection to the transfer of the lease from Council to the Lions Club of Yeppoon. The motion was seconded by Cr Barbara Wildin and passed.

Capricorn Coast Minot May 2 — May 8, 1987

Keppel Bay Shell Club has come a long way from 1962 beginning KEPPEL Bay Shell Club has come a long way since its first meetings in a garage. Today, past and present members are gathering at Bayview Tower to celebrate the club's 25th anniversary. The club was founded on March 30, 1962, with 38 shell enthusiasts converging on club president Godfrey Morgan's garage to hold meetings. Before the club's formation a few friends had gathered because of their interest in collecting shells. Discussions and help in identifying the many varieties of shells to be found were given at the gatherings. Homes were used for these meetings and a wide understanding and knowledge'of shells was absorbed as the group pooled information. Whenever visitors to the Coast from other parts of the world met with a group member showing an interest in shells they were invited to attend the next get together. Many friendships were formed and new correspondents were added to the growing list of contacts and information. Because the group's numbers kept increasing, an alternative venue for meetings was needed and it was decided to form a club. The result was the formation of Keppel Bay Shell Club. • Headquarters were made in Yeppoon and the club's objective was to discuss all matters of interest to collectors and the study and advancement of the knowledge of shells generally. The club advanced from its garage meetings to a room in Yeppoon State Primary School. Members had as their emblem the shell called Voluta pulchra pulchra Sow. The shell is regularly found in the Central Queensland area and members decided to adopt it as the emblem. By July of its founding year, the club was

producing a quarterly paper called Keppel Bay Tidings, produced on the Coast and sent out to all members. The club's magazine is now a bi-monthly production sent all over the world. The club also has a comprehensive library available to members at the monthly meetings. The library was established to honour the memory of Rex Littlejohn, who died in 1964. To celebrate its anniversary the shell club has organised a dinner for past and present members on Saturday, May 2, (tonight) in Bayview Tower. Club membership hovers around 400 and at the moment is about 350. Members range in age from eight years in the junior ranks to one member who is 83 years-old. The result of the club's first meeting to elect office bearers was: patron, Tony Marsh; president, Godfrey Morgan; honorary secretary, Rex Littlejohn; assistant honorary secretary, Ena Coucom; honorary treasurer, Alice Blanning; tutor and librarian, Mollie Bowman (who was made a life member this year); honorary auditor, A Craik and honorary members, Dr Don McMichael, Curator of Molluscs, Australian Museum, Sydney, and Mrs J Hope Macpherson, Curator of Molluscs National Museum of Victoria, Melbourne. At the annual meeting held on Friday, April 24, office bearers elected for 1987 were: president, Allan Davidson; vice-president, Arthur Prowse and Ena Coucom; secretary, Jean Offord; assistant secretary, Judy Mason; treasurer, Nancy Plumb; librarian officers, Judy Mason and Ena Coucom; editor, Graeme Annabell; assistant editor, Blanche Boorman and patron, Ena Coucom. Lucky members for April were Marcia and Warner Kipp of Rockhampton. Next displays will be of Shell Art and a talk on a shelling trip.


Junior Rules president's 'dismay' - ON behalf of the Yeppoon Junior Aussie Rules I wish to register my dismay at the condition of the Yeppoon Showgrounds when an inspection was held after the circus had departed last week. With rotten bones that were fly-blown, broken glass and bottle tops, welding rod ends, steel holding stakes, pieces of jagged cut-off steel — all left in the middle of the oval, not to mention the 103 holes that had to be filled up by four men which took more

than three hours, I wonder why this was allowed to happen. We have in excess of 100 junior players using the oval and this mess could have caused a very serious injury. As a club we are proud of the condition that we leave the sheds and the ground in each week and to find the mess as we did last weekend I feel justified in registering this complaint through your paper. — Ross Mclndoe, PO Box 388, Yeppoon .

Gerry Stanke and Key Peel at the 53 Tanby Road auto electrical workshop.

Auto electrician at 53 Tanby Rd AUTO ELECTRICIAN Key Peel has opened a workshop at 53 Tanby Road, Yeppoon because he sees the Coast as the growth area in Central Queensland. He and partner Geoff Brady, together with Gerry Stanke, offer a complete auto electrical business under one roof. Key Peel, who has 25 years' experience. in the trade, and more than 20 years operating his own business, said he was pleased he had "taken the plunge" and opened in Yeppoon. "I've been a Coast ratepayer for 15 years and I've always wanted to spend more time here," he said this week. He expects to be dividing his time between his Rockhampton business and Peel Auto Electrics at 53 Tanby Road ... with the eventual aim of spending most of his time on the Coast. He said his Rockhampton business, on the corner of Stanley and Alma Streets, was the largest auto electrical service in Central Queensland ... and everything his Rockhampton shop offered was available in Yeppoon. "We can handle anything in Yeppoon but it's good • to have the Rockhampton business as back-up for parts and service," he said. "It means Coast customers will never need to be inconvenienced. There are five auto electrical tradesmen, plus two apprentices in Rockhampton and we can call on them when there's a rush day here or one of us is away." Key Peel said another advantage of having two businesses was the convenience for warranty work. "We give a warranty on all work and, should the need arise, customers can have their vehicle seen to at either our Tanby Road business or in Rockhampton," he said. "When so many Coast people work in Rockhampton it means they can drop in their vehicle while they are at work and


know it will be ready for them to drive home." After being a Coast ratepayer for 15 years, Key Peel is no stranger to the area. A Lion for the past 18 years and District Governor of area 201 Q4 (Gladstone to Normanton) for 1985-86, he is looking forward to regularly attending Yeppoon Lions Club meetings. His partner, Geoff Brady, also a skilled tradesman, will be involved in the day- to-day running of the 53 Tanby Road business. "Gerry Stanke is the tradesman who will be on hand from Monday to Saturday but either Geoff or I will be there with him each day," Key Peel said. "We know how much work there is on the Coast and it will need two of us to be available daily."

Marine service PEEL AUTO ELECTRICS, now at 53' Tanby Road, Yeppoon, will head out into the field to get customers' vehicles and machinery going again ... and that includes on the water. Key Peel said electrical problems could hit machinery at any time and at any place ... "and that's why we're prepared to go into the field." He's expecting a lot of work from boat and trawler owners on the Coast and is equipped to carry out marine repairs and rewiring. Trailable boats can be taken to the 53 Tanby Road workshop or Key Peel will handle the work at the mooring. "Marine work is part of the auto electrical business because vessels have the same needs, and problems, as any machinery," he said. The field work also extends to farms and businesses whenever the need arises.

Armature re-winding available PEEL AUTO ELECTRICS can save motorists time and money with armature re-winding ... it's carried out on the premises. Key Peel said this week re-winding was one of the skills he was proud to be able to offer to customers. "It's a big part of our business in Rockhampton and it's won us a lot of customers over the past 20 years," he said. "We've been able to save Central Queenslanders a lot of money by doing our own re-winding because the alternative is sending the armature to a specialist in Brisbane." He said the saving in time was usually what most customers were after ... but the saving in money was a definite incentive.

Re-winding was particularly helpful in cases where spare parts just could not be found. "There are occasions when you just can't buy a new armature and re-winding is the only way to get the vehicle going," Key Peel said. "Customers appreciate it when an expensive vehicle or machine can return to work in hours, rather than days." Peel Auto Electrics will also repair magnetos at its 53 Tanby Road premises ... "we're the only magneto repairers in Central Queensland," Key Peel said. "We get them from Longreach and all points in between. They're not common but they are used in some tractors, farm pumps, farm machinery and aeroplanes.

DATE CLAIMER: Saturday, May 30. Emu Park Anglican Church street stall in front of the two shops in Hill Street. o 0 0 SAW a great advertisement the other day. "Wanted. Woman for a challenging and worthwhile job — to mother a child. Longterm commitment needed to love, feed, nurture, protect, console, worry, enjoy, clean, educate. on call 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week. No training provided. Learn on the job. No cash reward. Potential for great joy." The ad is part of the promotion by Nursing Mothers for National Mothering Week, May 3 to 10. National Mothering Week 1987 aims to raise the status of women's unpaid work as mothers. Women are aften made to feel that their role as mothers is unimportant. Yet mothers caring for children are providing an essential service for the whole community as the physical and emotional health of the next generation starts in a mother's arms. The Coast Nursing Mothers Assocation will have a display in Savemore on Saturday, May 9 ... the day before Mothers Day and as part of National Mothering Week.

CAPRICORN Coast Miss Australia Quest entrant Karlene McDonald raised over $600 at the skate-a-thon held on the weekend. The marathon started with 18 skaters on Friday night and six were still making their way around Yeppoon Skateway on Saturday night. . All funds raised by Karlene will go to the Queensland Spastic Welfare League. "I thank the two volunteer ambulance officers, Gavin Lewington and Ross Newmann, who took turns to stay on call during the skate-a-thon," Miss McDonald said. Marathon co-ordinator was Lex Semple and the person who thought of that type of fund-raising event was Larry Austin. Karlene's next function is a char-grill on Mothers Day at the Railway Hotel. "There will be entertainment throughout the day," she said. Another Mothers Day fund-raiser is bunches of flowers on sale at Yeppoon BP on the day before (Saturday). 0

THE quarterly meeting of the CQ Zone of the Queensland Pensioners League will be held at Emu Park on Wednesday, May 27, starting at 10am. A bus will take Yeppoon Pensioners' League members to the meeting and will leave Yeppoon Railway Station at 9.15am, returning after the Emu Park group's monthly social which will be held in the Cultural Hall. . A bus has been arranged to take members to Rockhampton on Thursday, May 14, leaving Yeppoon Railway Station at 9am. Inquiries for seats to bus captain Patricia King, 39 2109. 0 0 0

THE mention of Yeppoon Railway Station in conjunction with the pensioners' league brings to mind the problem the league has been having about a waiting place at the station. A while back the station alcove was closed to protect the station and its various cargoes from problems. The problem arose for various groups who used to catch buses from the station to other places because everyone used to wait in the alcove away from the wind and rain. Anyway, Yeppoon Pensioners' League and its president Bill Shuttlewood decided to contact the various officials to see about having it re-opened. Success. YPL has received notification from Transport Minister Don Lane that 'alternative arrangements have been made for the security of parcels on the platform and for the sale of tickets. Arrangements have also been made for the entrance to the vestibule from the platform side to be enclosed and a doorway provided to enable access to the platform from the vestibule when necessary. This door will be locked when not in use and this will allow the use of the vestibule during working hours". Congratulations. There is also an item on this page about a course being run by Community Health on assertive and aggressive behaviour. I think the YPL knows the difference.

Olde Davis Cup won by Callide IN pouring rain a busload of Yeppoon Indoor Bowling Club members went to Biloela on Sunday to play in the first of two games for 1987 in Ye, Olde Davis Cup fixture. It was the 27th game in the competition which had its beginning in 1972 when members of YIBC went to Goovigen to play a match against that centre. Yeppoon won the contest and former games director of St Andrew's (Yeppoon) Indoor Bowling Club Jim Scott, at that time in charge of police at Goovigen, gave an old china cup to then senior YIBC vice president Bernie Robson as a gimmick. The competition was later transferred to a twice-yearly fixture between Callide Valley Indoor Bowling Association and YIBC. Since 1972 YIBC has won the cup 17 times, Callide nine and Goovigen once. "That indoor bowls caters for all ages was evidenced at Biloela on Sunday when nineyear-old Cathy Cruickshank played as lead for Callide against YIBC's 80-year-old Bill Shuttlewood," YIBC's spokesman said. Also in the Callide line-up were Sarah Cruickshank 11, Juanita White 12 and 15year-old Kevin Bowden. "They all played excellent bowls and the future of indoor bowling in the Callide Valley is assured while the sports administrators there continue to foster youth participation," YIBC publicity officer Bill Shuttlewood said. After an absence from bowling of six years., Bill Shuttlewood made Sunday's game and was fortunate to be picked in the team that won the trophies for the highest-scoring YIBC team. Playing excellent bowls, the callide team of Ted Marshall, Olive Brown, Arthur Kirkwood, Joan Penfold, Harry Eastaway and Kevin Bowden won all five games; scoring 70 points and paved the way for Callide's handsome victory of 261 /, games, 502 points to YIBC's 131,,, 410 points. For YIBC the top team was number eight, of Syd James, Nancy Jarvie, Marie Zonca, Brian McCabe, Florence Collins and Bill Shuttlewood. Thfs combination, expertly skipped by Syd James and Brian McCabe, won four games and scored 66 points. For their effort in trying hard, but winning no games, the YIBC team of Aub Klaproth, Mery Eggerling, Steve Cowie, Elma Kearney, Evie Benson and Jean Whiteacre and were awarded the lowest-score prizes. Ken White (Callide) won the raffle ... a fruit tray. Six players who were in the 1972 game at Goovigen made the trip last Sunday. They were Bernie and Vi Robson, Bill and Thelma Shuttlewood, Evie Benson and Errol Ward. Excellent morning and afternoon teas were provided by the Callide ladies. Today, Saturday, the scene .shifts to Yeppoon when 54 members of the Mackay Indoor Bowling Club will arrive for a weekend of bowling, which will include sessions tonight, tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night. After tomorrow afternoon's session a cent sale will be held, followed by a barbecue. Members are asked to take sandwiches, scones and pikelets for supper on Saturday night and cakes and tarts for tomorrow night.

D grade squash marred by forfeits CAPRICORN Coast D Grade squash fixtures were marred by forfeits this week. "This not only lets down the opposing players, but also affects team results," the D grade spokesman said. "Please advise the squash centre early so that every effort can be made to find a reserve player." The lack of players did not mean a lack of exciting games for the night. Tim Lanyon showed a return to form by playing a tightly controlled game of squash and this meant Peter Triffelly was unable to get a foot in. Shane Nixon and Lynda Keilly matched each other point for point with Shane the eventual winner in the fifth game. Stuart Clarke and Jenny Konnings also fought it out to five games with Jenny having a win in the fifth. Boys Four defeated Roses and Thorn 4-1: Stuart Clarke v Jenny Konnings 2-3; Peter Stoyel def Leisa Fien 3-0; Sean Fallis and Barry Hinton each won on a forfeit. Annie's Boys defeated Master Blasters 32: Peter Treffilly v Tim Lanyon 0-3; Ian Lawton def Danny O'Meara 3-0; Lynda Keilly v Shane Nixon 2-3; Ben Stack def Peter Janz 31.

Speed Balls defeated Terminators 5-0: Glen Knights def Troy Wilkinson 3-0; Anne Priem def Scott Salmond 3-0; reserve Karen Wood and Dwayne Vivian both won on 'forfeit.

THE first round of Rockhampton District Rugby Union fixtures was held on the weekend and CapCoast Rugby Club started A grade on a high note with a gritty 14-11 win over Colts. Colts is supposedly one of the stronger teams in the competition so it augers well for rugby on the Coast this season. Playing in summery conditions, minus John Atkinson and Paul Marshall to the CQ Under 21s and Mark Boyd to injury, the side got off to a sluggish start. CapCoast could be considered lucky to be only 3-0 down midway through the first half, after two early penalty goal attempts had missed from Colts' Warren McLaughlin. From this point on the side started to move into gear with the forwards driving hard and winning good clean ball. After a tap penalty in Colts' 25, 'Paddles' Aroa slotted over a neat field goal to make the score 3-3. Shortly after, Colts went over near the posts for a controversial try after the last pass appeared to travel considerably forward. The conversion attempt missed and the team went into half-time 3-7 down, but by no means out of the game. After an inspiring team talk from captaincoach Dave Ruck the side came out and produced some strong forward rugby and wore down Colts. Dave Ruck slipped a neat pass to Marc Aroa who dashed over the line taking three defenders with him. Rucky missed the conversion and the scores were level at 7-7. With the help of clever tactical kicking from Aroa, penetrative running of inside centre Mark Thompson, the forwards drove Colts back into their own quarter. After an infringement close to Colts' line, number eight Mick Bongers took the ball off the back of the scrum, passed to Ruck who forced his way over in the corner. The connection missed and CapCoast led 11-7. A slight relaxation in the CapCoast defence saw Colts scamper over and throw the pressure right back on Coast. The conversion missed and the score was 11 all. With 15 minutes to go and the scores level Mark Aroa pulled another field goal. This one was a 35 metre effort out of the bag to put CapCoast in front 14-11. From this point on CapCoast grafted away at Colts denying them possession by winning almost 100 per cent of the line-out ball and the majority of scrum, ruck and maul ball to the full-time whistle. For Coast, Marc Aroa and Mark Thompson had strong games in the backs while loose forwards Nick Corbett and Ian Hutton were on the ball all day. Special mention to Paul 'Mello' Marshall

who played the majority of the game with a head gash which needed five stitches. Peter Trifelly had his first run for Coast and Andrew Farlwo was coaxed out of semiretirement to run off in the black and gold. "Without these two guys, who came in at short notice, we would have run on with only 13 men. Thank you very much," captain/coach Dave Ruck said. This week's game is against Pioneers at Rugby Park, 4.30pm. In the Suncorp Cup, CapCoast had the premiers down 15-4 at the break, only to throw the game away in the second half to lose 24-15.

A grade squash CAPRICORN Coast A grade squash team Mariners found third-placed Strugglers to be more than a match for them on Wednesday night. A weakened Strugglers' line-up with good wins at the number three and four positions defeated Mariners two rubbers each, eight games to seven. Mariners have had fine sailing for the past two weeks winning four straight each time. However, the number four Danny Taylor found reserve May Briggs to be too cunning when she out-foxed him, 3-1, while Roger Dale at number three found Larry Owens had recovered some of his old form to win 30. Joe Foat continues to out run all, accounting for Neil Roberts in four while Brett Stewart was unable to stop reserve Bob Teece from obtaining the game necessary for a Strugglers win. Mery Leslie, playing as reserve at number one for the president, played well to extend Gordon Roberts of Mighty Macks 2-5. Warren Royal at number four for Mighty Macks won the fifth game convincingly against Ray Campbell in what wds earlier quite a scrappy match. Len Keily, at number four for Team One, should be well pleased with his performance in defeating the wily Chris Callard in four. Team One defeated Social Hitters, 3-1: Len Keily def Chris Callard 3-1; Glen Ward def Doug Perrin 3-0; reserve Chris Priem v Bernard Lacey 0-3; Tony Smith def Clay Nothling 3-1. Mighty Macks defeated All The President's Men and His wife 3-1: Warren Royal def Ray Campbell 3-2; Ian Atkinson def Jenny Umlauft 3-0; Chris Hacker v Brian Umlauft 0-3; Gordon Roberts def Mery Leslie 3-2. Strugglers defeated Mariners two rubbers each, eight games to seven: May Briggs def Danny Taylor 3-1; Larry Owens def Roger Dale 3-0; Neil Roberts v Joe Foat 1-3; Bob Teece v Brett Stewart 1-3.

Junior rules YEPPOON Junior Aussie Rules played only two games on Sunday. Under 13's and Under 11's had a bye due to Biloela only having an under 15 side and Rocky Grammar an under 17 side. Biloela arrived with only 14 players so Yeppoon extended the friendship by supplying them with four players. The match turned out a one-sided affair with Biloela only scoring 2 goals 1 behind to Yeppoon 25-19. Yeppoons best players were Ronald Mackie, Mark Van Gestal and Dale Wetzler. Danny Bromley played for Biloela and put in a top game. It was much the same in the under 17 grade against Rochampton Grammar with the scores ending Yeppoon 16-16 to Grammar 1-1. Best players for Yeppon were Aaron Trevis, Aaron Thompson, John Higgins and Luke Bowden.

Emu Park bowls JOHN Aitken won the A championship singles semi-final at Emu Park Bowls Club when he defeated Jack Norris 25-19. In the other singles semi-final Lou Tickner defeated Col Smith 25-10.

'Gym Talk' ...with MaI O'Keeffe ONE in four Queenslanders develop skin cancer ... the highest incidence in the world, according .to the Queensland Institute of Technology. Scientists have confirmed that the ozone barrier surrounding the earth's atmosphere is reducing every year due to pollution and atmospheric disturbances and because of this the rays generated by the sun are more concentrated. As the general awareness of ultra-violet rays is more apparent through the media by the government's 'Slip, Slop, Slap' advertising campaign, people are now looking for alternative methods of acquiring tanning without the pain associated with the burns and aging process. I wish to introduce you to the safest and best method of tanning ... the Solarium Sunbed!

The method is UVA/B Tanning System. This system has a minute percentage of UVB rays which encourages production of melanin which draws the pigment to the outer cells of the skin enabling the UVA rays to brown the skin. Phone me now for your session and have a tan through the winter months.

$20,000 TOAST OF THE COAST RACE MEETING LESS than three weeks remain before the highlight of the Yeppoon Amateur Racing Club's annual calendar, the Toast of the Coast meeting. This meeting, at which it has been programmed to distribute more than $20,000 in prizemoney and trophies, will be held at Tyrer Park on May 20. The feature of a five-event programme will be a $7750 Toast of the Coast Country Stakes (1200m) for which an attractive consolation is planned should final acceptances be on a par with previous years. For this class of horse the prizemoney at Yeppoon is among the richest distributed by any provincial club in Queensland.

Other events are: Open Handicap (1420m) $3000; Coca-Cola Rural Stakes (1200m) $2000, Maiden Handicap (1200m) $2000, Two-Year-Old Handicap (1100m) $2000. The May 20 meeting will be the first occasion the club has catered for a twoyearold event. This class of racing is receiving tremendous publicity at presnt and hopefully the response will be on a par with the Patience Park Silver Bootee Stakes run at Tyrer Park on April 15 when a full field of 12 faced the starter. The Toast of the Coast, which coincides with the running of the Prime Minister's Cup

at the Gold Coast, starts off carnival racing in the Rockhampton area. The YARC Committee plans to hold a Sportsmen's evening in association with the Toast of the Coast and on the day a Fashions in the Field will carry a $100 open order prize from Colonial Gardens. Keen interest is being shown in the leasing of the house and stable complex at Tyrer Park. Earlier this week the secretary, Leo .Mackie received telephone calls from trainers at Warwick, Toowoomba and Esk Regarding the set-up. Written expressions of interest close today and the committee will deal with these at their next meeting on Wednesday.

❑ By Jay Blake IT was another day of disappointment for the Swans last Saturday as they crashed to another defeat. The winning mArgin of 52 points flattered Brothers but Yeppoon never really looked like winners. Once again it was a case of the Reserve grade being short and A grade having to double up, so right from the start the Swans were behind the eight ball. Looking back at the game Yeppoon did not have one player who did not contribute, they didn't have many clear winners but conversely, not many clear losers. The side started well dominating the first 10 to 15 minutes without registering it on the scoreboard. Time and time again their over use of the ball brought about mistakes and more often than not Brothers capitalised on them. With this new emphasis on handball the Swans will have to learn when and where to use it. Too many times last week bad handball caused indirect passage to goal and put players under pressure causing a loss of possession. A little good fortune would not have gone astray either, as they didn't get one favourable bounce or crucial free kick all day. But still they battled on looking for Darren Kemp at every opportunity, unfortunatly he was wearing two left boots and hobbled around like a lame Flamingo. One major problem yet to be sorted out is the way the side is continually changed around, the goal to goal line was changed more times then Lady Di's picture has been on the cover of Women's Weekly. With five games gone now the side is no where near settled and this could prove costly later on. Philbob Lacy and Mark 'Sparrow' Taylor were brilliant across the half back line, although 'their disposal wasn't copy book they spoilt and tackled until they'd run themselves into the ground. Greg Brown, Ben Kelly and "Poster" Dell shared the ruckwork against their taller Brothers opponents and even though they were well outreached in the air they took the overall honours on the day. Greg Williams back at last for his first game this year inspired plenty of fire and desperation in his team-mates and with a few runs under his belt will once again be a force. Rob Gardner was given the job of tagging the resting Brothers rovers and shut them right out of the game, a great effort considering they're supposedly the top combination in the League. My best players: P Lacy, Taylor, Brown, Bourke, Motton and Gardner. Goalkickers: S Tickner 4; C Bourke 3; D Kemp, G Williams, B Kelly 2 each. The. Reserve grade battled against the odds all day. They were much shorter and lighter then their opponents and in the end this could have been the telling factor. For the first three quarters it was a very even tussle with both sides producing good passages of play but Yeppoon couldn't capitalise in front of goal. They had chances early on but the lack of an avenue to goal was a stumbling block.

Toast of the Coast

In an all too familiar fashion the ball was cleared from the backline only to rebound from the half -forward line. They were still in the game at threequarter time, being only four goals down but lost 'Big Bad' Bill Culton shortly after the start of the last quarter. His loss and an injury to Scott Witts seemed to open the floodgates and Brothers ran away to a big win. Best Players: Wiggington, Geissman, Mynott, M Wetzler and Culton. Goalkickers: Bain, Roberts 1. This week's grooming award goes to the smallest Swan, Dan 'the man' Munn for his Blue boy outfit. Unfortunatly the critics corner was back last week, let's hope they'll only be supportive from now on. Gary Hawke is nearing a personal milestone and is about to make club history, more about that next week. There are no fixture games this weekend because of a C.A.F.L. carnival in Rockhampton.

Wins to Dolphins and Dynamics YEPPOON Table Tennis Association fixtures played on Thursday, April 23, resulted in two prominent wins to Dolphins and Dynamics. In the first place Dolphins defeated Rockets seven games to four. Joe Kruger and David Stewart's match went to three games, with David showing his superiority in downing Joe in the third, 21-8. Dolphins' second player, Brian Stephens, was in top form to win all his matches for the night. When playing David, Brian's consistency and accuracy in returning shots proved too much for David. Rockets' number three Scott Malick, also had a hard battle with Gordon Wall, but managed to get the edge on him to win 21-19 and 23-21. Gordon played a better match against Rockets' . second player, Gordon Salton, but lost in three games. Both sets of doubles were taken out by Dolphins. On the other table, Dynamics had a runaway victory over Bog Factory, 9-2, however both teams had fill-ins for their number one players. Ray Morgan played for Bog Factory and Monica Christensen filled in as Dynamics' first player. Both Monica and Bill Sherlock won all three of their singles matches. The battle between the number three's, Peter and Neil Malick, showed intense concentration by each player and it was Peter's turn to take the honours to defeat his brother in two games. Neil, however, improved his game against Dave Ryan, and defeated him in three games. Both sets of doubles were won by Dynamics. The draw for -the start of the final round on Thursday, May 7, is Bog Factory v Rockets, Marvels v Dynamics and Dolphins have the bye.

Ike back nb "OLD BALDY," needless to say, never worries about being bald, but that topic seems to give other people great amusement. Remarks about baldness are usually made by people secure in the knowledge that their low foreheads will last them a lifetime. Now "OB" has known since he was a little boy with a comb full of • hair that he was a solid candidate for endless chrome-dome jokes ... but his Courier-Mail mate Warren Nunn caught him off guard this week by telling him he should get a couple of rabbit tattoos on his head ... "from a distance they'll look like hares". o o o BY the way, "OB" has bought an old Mazda Bongo van for deliveries to save money (Suzy calls him Chicken-Man because he's cheep, cheep!) Anyway, last week "OB" was driving up Selvey Street in third gear in the Bongo Van and a tiny white dog rushed out of a house and started barking at it. Happy with the sound of its bark, the dog decided to chase the van ... and successfully kept up with it all the way up the street. "OB" has often wondered what a dog would do with a car'" ever it caught one ... and reckons he nearly found out! 0 0 0 THE worst part of that story was that Cathy (Lois Lane) Logan was sitting next to him all the way up Selvey Street ... cackling like a maniac. She told everyone (absolutely everyone) about the dog, so much so that "OB" had the Mazda tuned. But "OB" managed to get his own back later in the week. "Lois" was looking up "correspondent" in the dictionary ("OB" had changed her spelling from "ant" to "ent" and she thought he was wrong). Anyway, using all the wiles young, dizzy blondes have at their command, she sidled up to "OB" and asked him how to spell the word. When he told her she said "you're wrong, you're wrong" (or words to that effect) and showed him the word she had found ... "co-respondent". For some reason he started laughing and shaking his head so she asked what it meant. He looked up to see that Suzy wasn't listening and said: "Wait till after work and I'll show you." And, as all jokes should have a happy ending, "Lois" asked Suzy what it' meant. Then, armed with her new-found knowledge, "Lois" told "OB" he was a "dirty old man". Life's never dull in newspapers!!! o o o THE time: Easter Sunday. The place: a Yeppoon church. Characters have heard sermon and a plate is about to passed among them so they can give sermon a financial score from 1 to 10 (anyway, that's how my co-respondent, sorry correspondent puts it). Just as the plate started its trip along a certain pew, a moth fluttered into the air about five peopl(,_„) away. A wag said the obvious, "who just opened their wallet?" ... and titters filled the rest of the pew. No wonder more and more people are finding themselves in church!!! o o o PLACE: Emu Park; time: moments before start of Anzac Day march ... exDigger stands in front of parade and, with military precision of old commands "left turn". The Diggers, to a man, turned left ... but they knew the command should have been "right turn". After the laughs the correct command was given and the parade moved off. 0 0 0

THE Capricorn Coast, once again, did Anzac Day proud. No matter what the squabbles, no matter what the problems, the Coast knows how to turn out for the, important events in life. Lest We Forget.
