Coast Vietnam veterans for Sydney parade

Private hospital, medical centre plan for Coast

• THE Queensland health department is now investigating a proposal to build a private hospital and medical centre complex on the corner of Adelaide Park Road and Cliff Street, Yeppoon. The Health department's decision is expected on Monday. Four blocks are apparently under contract subject to approval being given for the complex. St Andrew's Private Hospital, Rockhampton, is behind the proposal and released few details when contacted on Wednesday afternoon. A spokesman for Alan Jackson, the administrator of St Andrew's, said the site was under investigation by the Health Department and that the department's answer on suitability was expected on Monday, June 15. Answering a question as to whether the complex would be a nursing home, the spokesman said it was definitely not a nursing home. To clear up any idea that it would be a nursing home, the spokesman said it would definitely be a private hospital and a medical centre. The Capricorn Coast Mirror contacted Health Minister Mike Ahern's office earlier on Wednesday but was unable to speak to the Minister. Further calls were made to two Health .Department offices. The Mirror understands four blocks, covering one acre, make up the private hospital complex site. Sales contracts have been written on all four, one of which is believed to be a vacant block of land fronting Hutton Street. It appears the private hospital would have access from both Cliff and Hutton Streets. No details were available on the sale of the houses and land, but it is understood a someone involved in the project stipulated that all four contracts had to be signed before anything could go ahead. Apparently one owner was wavering when this person left by plane for Brisbane ... it seems the contract was signed 10 minutes before the aircraft landed.

YEPPOON Vietnam veteran Roy Savage wants all of his colleagues in the conflict to join him in a "Welcome Home" march in Sydney later this year. The Welcome Home march is being held following a world-wide change of attitude toward those who served in what became the most unpopular conflict this century. A massive march to "welcome" veterans was held last year in Chicago, in the United States ... the Australian welcome will be held in Sydney on October 3. Mr Savage, who did two tours of Vietnam and, before that served in Borneo and Malaya, said he wanted all Vietnam veterans on the Coast to attend a meeting on Monday night, at 7.30, in the back room of the Club Hotel. This meeting will give veterans details of the Welcome Home march and information on various means of travelling and accommodation. Veterans will also get the chance to discuss formation of Capricorn Coast branches of two Vietnam associations ... either the Vietnam Veterans' Legion, or the Vietnam Veterans' Association ... or both. Mr Savage said one group fought for veterans' rights and entitlements and the other was more concerned with social activities. Mr Savage, who was a sergeant in Vietnam and ended his 24-year Army career as a warrant officer, is best known in Yeppoon as the bugler at military occasions. He wound up as the Welcome Home organiser on the Coast "because he was the one who was asked". He is enthusiastic about the job because he understands how so many veterans feel ... and he wants them to proudly take their place in the Welcome Home march and activities. He said it was expected that at least 20,000 Vietnam veterans would attend the ceremonies in Sydney and march 10 abreast through the streets from the Domain to Hyde Park. Disabled veterans will also be taking part. Mr Savage said the march was being organised so that everyone would march under the banners of their former units. The march would be a blaze of Australian flags ... each one representing an Australian killed in Vietnam. A special place of honour has been reserved for Keith Payne, VC, ... he will lead the entire parade through Sydney followed by the women who served (nursing corps) followed by the first Australians into Vietnam, the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV). Following them will be the various units of the Navy, Army and Air Force. Mr Savage said it was going to be a special occasion and one that Vietnam Veterans deserved to attend. He said arrangements for travel would be made at a later date. Preliminary plans would be made at the Club Hotel meeting on Monday night. "I want all Coast veterans to come to this meeting so we can find out how many there are here," Mr Savage said. He said he appreciated some veterans would prefer to remain anonymous ... but asked that friends or relatives contact him so that he can at least speak to them and see how many live here. Mr Savage can be contacted in business hours at Yeppoon Shells and Gifts, (079) 39 3722 or at home on 39 1353.

Salvation Army sets $6900 target for Red Shield Appeal on Coast THE Capricorn Coast has been set a target of $6900 for the Sunday, June 21, Red Shield Appeal for the Salvation Army. Salvation Army public relations director Sergeant John Alley said the target included response from appeal letters which had been sent to business houses and previous donors. Money raised from the appeal would go toward the deficit in maintaining the Salavation Army's welfare services. Sgt Alley said it cost $77 million to maintain its 88 institutions and other services such as Employment 2000, disaster, emergency and family welfare. The Salvation Army raises about $60 million and relies on its annual appeal to bear the brunt of the $17 million deficit. Capricorn Coast secondary schools will help the Coast appeal committee doorknock the area.

The Red Shield Appeal has been held since the early '60s ... before that it was called the Self Denial Appeal. The Salvation Army originated in the slums of London in 1863 and, in its early days, was called the East London Charity Mission. It catered to the sick and needy, preached, cooked, cleaned and had an "acute social conscience", Sgt Alley said. The organisation changed its name to the Salvation Army in 1878. There are 88 institutions throughout Australia for all kinds of help; old people's homes and home for the disadvantaged. Sgt Alley said 8500 were now being cared for in these institutions. There is no centre on the Capricorn Coast, but officers visit several days a week and funds are made available in a crisi situation. "If someone is in need, the Salvation Army gives funds to support and help out," Sgt Alley said.

WELL, this is my first column and, before I start, I would like to thank the many people who called in, phoned, or commented at the Yeppoon Show on the full page advertisement we had in last week's Mirror. For Bryan and myself it's been a hectic few weeks getting everything to come together to create Mike Walter and Associates, The Insurance Shop. We're confident The Insurance Shop will work because of the way clients have responded .to the privacy and their comments along the lines of "this is a better way of doing business". Anyhow, enough of that; down to business. Everyone knows about inflation; children understand that their pocket money won't buy as many ice creams and lollies as it did last year; the days of "five dollars in the tank" are gone forever; the $100 weekly grocery order is here t3 stay. Which, of course, brings us to the subject of retirement ... and some mind-boggling facts. Imagine you are 45 and your son is 25 (OK, so our imaginary parent married young) and each wants to retire at age 65 with a weekly income equal to $300 in today's money. Oh, assume annual inflation of 10 per cent. How much would the 45-year-old need in a lump sum so that when this sum is invested at 14 per cent the return is equal to today's $300 a week? Well, before you attempt working it out, I'll give you food for thought ... today, you would need $111,000 invested at 14 per cent to er return $298.84 a week. And, in 20 years, you will need $750,000! '`u." Our 25-year-old today, to retire at age 65 with $300 a week of today's money coming in will need about $5 million. Today's 45-year-old, when he invests his $750,000 at 14 per cent will receive weekly almost $2000 ... and it will buy what $300 buys t oday. Today's 25-year-old will earn $13,500 a week after the $5 million is invested. If you don't believe the figures (and it is hard to believe them) think back 20 years ago and how much you were earning then. Remember when $80 to $100 a week was BIG money? OK, that's what you will need. How do you save that much in the next 20 or 40 years? Call in and see us. We'll show you how. Today's 45-year-old will need to invest about $75 weekly (in today's money); the 25year-old will need to invest only $25 a week. Keep this in mind. By the time you are 65 you will most like own your own home, have a nice car, probably a boat (if that's your lifestyle) and you are unlikely to have any other financial commitments. So, the figure you need could be quite different. Call in and discuss your needs with us, in confidence, at The Insurance Shop.

I AM amazed to hear that a furore has erupted over my request for a one-month leave of absence from Livingstone Shire Council. The plain facts are these: I am having followup tests for breast cancer on June 9. I asked to have them earlier but was told I had to wait till June 9. I will therefore be back at the end of the month. I had cancer in 1977, followed by a year of chemotherapy in Sydney at Royal Prince Alfred and in London at Charing Cross Hospital, so I'd be a fool not to wait. I find it extremely tedious to be constantly attacked by Crs Wildin and Dorey. No doubt they both have aspirations to be the next chairman and perhaps see me as a threat. I can't think why. Evidently Cr Dorey is

AN estimated 3000 people attended this year's Keppel Sands Krabtastic swelling the fundraising coffers for the State Emergency Service. Despite an overcast sky, blustery conditions and occasional drizzle, the fun-packed day went ahead with enthusiasm. Mt Larcom fisherman George Faint retained his title as world crab tying champion in a sizzling 17.48 seconds. In all, 14 crab typing hopefuls lined up for the title and the field was broken down to four in the final with a series of elimination heats. Contestants had to tie two crabs ... and second place-getter Scott Howard was close to the pace with 18.28 seconds. Monica Bellert of Rockhampton was Krabtastic Queen and Tanya Abbott, also of Rockhampton, was princess. Winners in the toddlers' sections were Danielle Abbott and Charles Hicks, both of Rockhampton. Karlie Reynolds and Anthony Mistlebrook were crowned winners of the age two and age four sections. Krazy kites soared over the crowds and the

Whether I'm there or not, Cr Dorey is a busybody, buzzing around in his little van, busily taking photographs of everyone and therefore being asked by people to do things. If he doesn't want to do them he should refer them to Cr McDonald who is well able to cope. We also have an extremely competent and approachable full-time chairman and a new shire clerk to deal with any Division One problems. If my test results are bad I will resign. In the meantime I do not think the best interest of Division One is for me to resign only 10 months before the next council elections. — Cr Ann Giorgi, London.

YEPPOON Show Society Committee members were pleasantly surprised with increased takings and attendance on the first day of this year's show. Secretary Noel Alley said it had been thought the overcast weather would have dampened enthusiasm. Response had been pleasing despite the weather and "outside competition" from the Caves, Keppel Sands and Rockhampton. Although the weather wasn't conducive to outdoor participation, the committee was satisfied with the results. Mr Alley described the 1987 show as a success ... gate takings for the two days had been "a little better than last year". Saturday had been up on the same day last year, but Sunday was "possibly down". Mr Alley said all money raised would go toward improving the grounds and facilities available at the Showground. Funds raised last year went toward improving the power supply for this year's exhibition stalls and for new stables. Mr Alley said these improvements had been welcomed by exhibitors and competitors. Livestock judges were pleased with the entries in different divisions of competition and the high standard of presentation. Horses, goats and dogs were exhibited and, \--or the first time since cattle have been exhibited, they were included in the grand parade. Mr Alley said cattlemen were pleased with the arrangements for the cattle show. Lions Park, and the section of road between the park and the Showground land, was closed off to traffic and used by cattlemen for their exhibits. He said committee members had heard several comments from spectators ... and all had been complimentary. The arts and crafts display, displays by Coast schools, produce from around the area and work by photographers, lapidary club, Coast brewers, aviary display, floral and other organisations made for an interesting show, he said. Vandalism on the Thursday night before the show did slightly delay preparations ... vandals had written graffiti on the walls of the freshlypainted public toilets.

Writer enjoys Show but... ONCE again I enjoyed our local show. Well done! 'But, I would like to comment on the commentary of the grand parade. The commentary seemed to consist of a lot of faux pas. Points that come to mind are as follows: 1 Not knowing the names of certain cars in the parade, new and the vintage; 2 Not being able to read listings given and announcing: "whoever wrote it, please could they come and read it". 3 Not being sure on the order or type of show cattle; 4 On the announcing of the show cattle saying: "St Brendan's College, coming up at the rear. They didn't win any prizes, but give them a hand". To talk on the latter. I'm sure that those boys dressed in St Brendan's College formal uniform, leading stud cattle, represented the school. If they did, someone really blundered as I'm sure I saw coloured ribbons around their necks. In particular, first ribbon for Tropical Breed and Reserve Grand Champion for Junior Breed. Two boys were wearing ribbons, that I'm told represented getting a first and a third in Junior Handler. Even if these boys went under their own . names for this event, it would have been nice to know first, second and third. I'm sure a remark like "they didn't win a prize" compensated for the effort they must have put into the preparation of the cattle. Surely, if you are to announce an event like this, people should check on all facts. Regarding the above listing, I only comment on the fourth point as being one of the biggest blues in my mind. Hopefully, next year we will hear a change. — J R Scott, PO Box 553, Yeppoon.

THE last table tennis fixtures for the season were played on Thursday, June 4 with the two top teams to play in the final ... Joe Kruger's Dolphins and Rob Green's Dynamics. Bog Factory •performed well on the night to take the game off Dolphins 7-4. Greg Simpson was still in top form and won all his singles matches. Paul Watts filled in as Dolphins' first player and ably assisted the Dolphins. The biggest surprise was when Dave Ryan defeated Brian Stephens in two games. His constant stream of nets and edges wore his opponent down (physically and mentally) and the final scores were a close 21-18, 22-20. Bog Factory's number three, Peter Malick, played hard to defeat his counterpart, Gordon Wall, in three games, the last of which could have gone either way as Peter scraped throUgh 21-19. Both teams won a set of doubles each. On the other table marvels was lucky to score a win over Rockets, six games to five. David Stewart's leniency when playing Monica Christensen threw him into trouble in the third as Monica managed to gain the last few points to win 21-18. Marvels second player, Ray Morgan, played well to score two wins, plus take David to three games. Neil Malick filled in as Rockets number two and Peter Murphy filled in for Marvels third player. As this was Peter's first taste of fixtures he played extremely well. In the first set of doubles, Monica and Ray narrowly defeated David and Neil with a win in three games. While in the second set the tables turned and David and Scott Malick won 25-23 in the last of three games against Monica and Peter. The final between Dolphins and Dynamics will be played on Thursday, June 25, unless otherwise advised and the barbecue will be held the following, Thursday, July 2.

THE Capricorn Coast A grade squash semifinals produced few surprises on Wednesday night. In the second semi-final, third placed Social Hitters defeated All The Presidents Men and His Wife, 3-1. Chris Callard started Social Hitters towards the finals with a very athletic match to defeat Ray Campbell in four. Judy Umlauft took Peter Gordon to a long game in the second before Peter ran out the winner in three for Social Hitters. President Brian Umlauft caught Bernard Lacey below his best and accounted for him in three. This is one of the few occasions when these two players have not gone to five. Clay Nothling clinched the result for Social Hitters with a 3-0 win against a less than match fit Nobs Drillis. The top semi-final saw Team One and Strugglers locked together after the second match, one rubber each, five games each, 7068. Strugglers number four Ellen Farr struggled

back from 2-0 down against Len Keily to take the match in five. Glen Ward then equalised for Team One by winning alternate games against Larry Owens in a very close match. Chris Briggs then set up Team One for a win in a match of see-sawing fortunes against Neil Roberts. Chris played much more consistently than previously and was particularly steady in the crucial fourth which he won 9-7 and then went on to win the fifth. Tony Smith, in devastating form, claimed the grand final berth with a 3-0 win against Strugglers' John Briggs. Strugglers now meet Social Hitters in the preliminary final next Wednesday night in what could be a points decision. Club members have been entertained several nights by visiting song-writer and country music singer Bill Mills of Toowoomba. Bill competed in The Caves/Rockhampton Country and Western Music Festival last weekend. He was given an encouragement award for his bush ballad. His entertaining was much appreciated by the members and the club hopes to secure his services in October. Team One defeated Strugglers 3-1: Len Keily v Ellen Farr 2-3; Glen Ward def Larry Owens 32; Chris Briggs def Neil Roberts 3-2; Tony Smith def John Briggs 3-0. Social Hitters defeated ATPM and HW 3-1: Chris Callard def Ray Campbell 3-1; Peter Gordon def Judy Umlauft 3.0; Bernard Lacey v Brian Umlauft 0- 3; Clay Nothling def Nobs Drillis 3-0.

YAB-A sorts out Fourteen Swans in back-to-back earlier problems games...lime for some answers' WITH two rounds of the Yeppoon Amateur Basketball Association grading competition to go, many of the earlier problems facing the organising committee have started to sort out. Regular line bookings and a more rigid control of the clock have kept games on time with two referees available on all games. In the Monday senior fixtures, Tigas disposed of an under-manned Tanby Roses, who was under pressure from the jump. It wasn't a prolific scoring game. Tanby's defence was poor and the combination of Tigas missed shots and two three-pointers from Tanby kept them in touch for the first half. Helped by a loan player in the second half, Tanby sorted out its zone but failed to keep the necessary guard against the fast break ... an opportunity Tigas did not miss. Little Karl Miller pulled down some remarkable rebounds for Tanby while Tigas Alan Thomas put half the points. Top dogs Seagulls took on La 'mour in the next game. Seagulls never had control of the game, but took the game easily as a result of turnovers from errors by La 'mour. Substitutions were not handled to La 'mour's best advantage, although the end result was never in doubt. Taylor gave her usual strong performance in the key, making plenty of room and Gayle Lorraway top scored for La 'amour. Top men's team, Coasters, found itself pushed by the high school Cobras' boys. Cobras bustling style pressured the referees ho need to be alert in these games. Coasters absent players cost them the game as second-half tiredness took its toll on the five on the court. Scoobbettes struggled for the first half against Bakehouse Gym. Peta Oates held the offensive rebounds for the Gym and her shots from under the basket kept them in the game. Scoobbettes' Natalie Dooley toted up the fouls and baskets and somehow managed to stay on the court well into the second half. It was Inger Corney who finished off for Scoobbettes. There will be no clinics next Sunday and the first Yeppoon basketball event will be the junior fixtures at 5pm. Sunday, June 14. 5pm, All Whites v La Wetz; 6pm, Shadows v Bombers; 7pm, Raiders v Supersonics; 8pm, Mixed Nuts v Panthers. Celtics has a bye. Monday, June 15. 6pm, Pink Galahs v Billabongs; 7pm, Cobras v Saints; 8pm, Bakehouse Gym v L'Amour; 9pm, Coasters v Tanby Roses. Wednesday, June 17. 6pm, Nomads v Seagulls; 7pm, Tigas v St Brendan's; 8pm, Scoobettes v DRs; 9pm, Wildcats v Scoobbs.

TWO seasons ago Yeppoon Swans pulled itself from the quagmire and into the fore-front of the CAFL but last week the club all but slipped back into the bog. So far this season the club has stumbled from one crisis to another and after Saturday the problems have come to a head. Fourteen players had to play back-to-back games on Saturday, so now it must be time for questions to be answered. Why has training been so poorly attended this year? Why has the club been unable to field two full sides, even at home? Why aren't there any incentive awards for players or backing from local business? Why is it that there are only two new players in the club this year? Why is it that the apathy surrounding football clubs in Yeppoon should be so rampant in the Aussie Rules? Saturday was a debacle, but it had nothing to do with the few players who made the trip to Boyne Island ... far from it. It's a fine testament, especially for the 14 that doubled up, for their dedication and they deserve accolades from everyone for keeping their side on the field. Col Jamieson showed the power of his convictions, pulling the boots on when his side

was in dire straits. It's a pity that there were only a few people to see it, as his performance on the field certainly silence a few. By all reports there was great comradery between the players on Saturday, and if this spirit can be filtered through the rest of the club perhaps it can still be saved form the mire. There is still time left as the A grad side at full strength can be a force and if the right spirit prevails, more than a force. A lot of things have gone wrong so far this year. The loss of two key players, Darren Kemp and Alex Herewane, nagging injuries to six other top liners and a terrible draw. Compaound this with a sagging morale, poor preparation and waning support and you've got a recipe for disaster. It's time for someone to step in and take hold of the reins and halt the club's decline, as too much hard work has been done to put the club on the right footing to let it slip. Saturday's two Mug winners were 'Side Step' Chapman in the first game and Bertie Street in the second. I'm fore-going the results this week as they unfairly flatter Boyne. Island. This week the Swans travel again. This time to Biloela and after their mid-week meeting should get back on the winning list.

21 horses seeking share of $6000 offered in Magna Magic Maiden YEPPOON Amateur Racing Club has received good nominations for its post-Carnival meeting to be held at Tyrer Park on Wednesday. The feature event, the New Chippindale Motors Mitsubishi Magna Magic Maiden Handicap (1200m) attracted 21 horses seeking a share of the $6000 prizemoney and trophy on offer. At this stage a full field of 12 starters appears likely for one of the richest events for this class of horse in country Queensland. Altogether the six-event programme for which the total value in prizemoney and trophies amounts to $14,000 attracted 70 nominations. The next best to the feature event was 14 for the Rural Stakes (1420m), which has a prize value of $1500. The smallest nomination is six for the $1500 Two-year-old Handicap (1200m) in which last Yeppoon meeting runaway winner, Haba Prince appears likely to start. The leading 1986/87 Yeppoon trainer, Graham Rewald, has one of his smallest nominations with only three entered. Apart from Haba Prince his other nominations are Estepenay (Open Handicap) and Bright Don (Improvers' Handicap). Rewald said some of the events did not suit the horses he currently had in work, but he expected this to be different for the next two meetings on July 1 and 8. Tyrer Park resident trainer John Anderson has given good support with five nominations from the on-course stable. The horses he has entered are: Indian Uprising (Open Handicap), Morlock (Improvers' Handicap), last season's

Horse of the Year at Yeppoon, Rosslyn Bay (Rural Stakes) and Bronze Charm (Two-yearold Handicap and Maiden Handicap).

Eagles win two

Bev Laundry retains her title as champion veteran in marathon CAPRICORN Coast marathon runner Bev Laundry retained her veterans title on Sunday when competing in an Australian title event. She was one of the runners affected by dismal weather which plagued the Westfield Australian Marathon, which incorporated the Australian Championships. Bev Laundry said the rain and bitter cold was enough to stop her from achieving her aim of making it into the top 10 ... she was 13 aim of making it into the top 10 ... she was 13th this year, one place below her 12th last year. She said anyone from warmer climates and countries (several marathon runners were from Africa) would find the conditions difficult. "It's hard to keep the muscles warm in the rain and cold weather," she said. While disappointed in not being able to improve her overall positioning, she said during the run she had asked herself whether she was working as hard as possible ... her answer to herself was that it would have been hard to do any better. Mrs Laundry said a runner always wanted to improve her position and placing but the adverse conditions in Sydney denied her the chance.

"It rained throughout the marathon and I'm not used to that kind of weather," she said. "Overall, I think everyone's expected times would have been down because of the weather." She ran the weekend's marathon in 3 hours and 20 minutes ... but believes she will have to shave 10 minutes from that time to retain her position in next year's Queensland team. She hopes to achieve that 10 minute gain, or better, in her next marathon on the Gold Coast on July 26. She said she would be doing light training for the Gold Coast run. • The Sydney marathon was not incidentfree ... Toni Buckle, the first woman home, was disqualified for outside assistance by a non-competitor. Officials ruled she was paced over the final 12km by a non-competitor. This was against the rules. First place then went to Mexican runner Maria Trugillo, who ran a time of 2 hours, 38 minutes. The Queensland team, comprising Mrs Laundry and three Brisbane women, won the women's category. New South Wales won the men's section. Mrs Laundry said she felt "pretty good" after the marathon on Sunday and hopes the Gold Coast marathon will go just as well.

YEPPOON Eagles won two games on Saturday when the under 7 and under 8 teams annihilated Blue Birds Royal and St Anthony Red. The under 7 soccer team defeated Blue Birds Royal 6-0. There was overall improvement in the team but the opposition lacked co-ordination. David Cue, in the forwards, capitalised and scored five goals. Ryan Korotcoff scored the goal of the match with a superb passing deflect into the goal. The under 8 team played like a team that wanted to win when it defeated St Anthony Red 2-0. The first goal went to Matthew Cummings who headed the ball straight into the net. The second one went to Michael Korotcoff. Eagles under 9 team went down to St Anthony 0-1. The players were evenly matched and the game lacked the speed and pace of the previous games. Play was subjected to crowding. Steven Novak contributed by making good saves as goal keeper. The under 12 match against Nerimbera Pandas has been deferred until further notice. Today (Saturday) is a home game at Apex Park (opposite the council depot). The under 7s lead off at 9am, under 8 at 9.45am, under 9 kick off at 9am and under 12 at 10am. Friends and visitors are welcome. Children are free and adults admission is one dollar. The canteen is open.

RODNEY Sonners gave a prize-winning performance during the Rockhampton Body Building Championships and was rewarded with a third placing in the junior title. Rod, who only started body building three months ago, was pitted against body builders who had been in the game a while and had experienced competition before. It was Rod's first competition and Bakehouse Gym's Mal O'Keeffe said Rod's downfall wa shis lack of experience and presentation in this sport, but he was pleased with the result after Rod's hard work to prepare for the competition. • Mr O'Keeffe said it was a close competition with about 40 body builders participating at a the Flamingo night club. Rod also was awarded the Body Builder judges' encouragement award. He is now in training for two body-building championships in August at the Sunshine Coast and in September at Cairns.

0 By Bongers CAPRICORN Coast Rugby Club produced some sparkling open rugby on Sunday when they made it through to the semi-finals in the Cambridge Hotel Sevens. Because Sevens rugby is all about fitness, ball skills and speed, Capcoast decided to rest their match-winning front row of recent weeks and went instead to the day-long carnival with six back and four loose forwards. Capcoast accepted a forfeit from Bundaberg then went on to convincing defeat Brothers (220) and Longreach (38-0). Both sides seemed to offer only token resistance as the rampaging Capcoast Seven piled on the points. Each leading team from the four pools competed in the semi-finals, leaving the two winners to fight out the $1000 final. Unfortunately, Capcoast drew short-priced favourites Pioneers as their semi-final opponent. The well-drilled Pioneers Seven modelled their game on Australia's world-renowned Seven side, (through helpful coaching from Brendan Moon) and ran out worthy winners 286. One game later Pioneers secured the $1000 cheque by trouncing Colts 36-8. Mark Maguire seems to grow new legs each year for the Sevens tournament, and this year was no exception. "Darky" scored the sole try against Pioneers after kicking, toeing and chasing a loose ball 70 metres up the field. Others to impress for Capcoast were "Paddles" Aroa, Mark Thompson and Tony "Catch that ball" Bragg. Capcoast travels to Biloela this week as normal fixtures resume. A win would be a tremendous boost for the club because it would keep the team close to the top of the points table at this, the half-way stage of the season.

Tke back up Ktivua COMPUTERS, the labour-saving device that have revolutionised the world, have a bad name at the Mirror at the moment. One of the typesetters heard last week that there would be two public holidays this week so it went on strike. Cathy (Lois Lane) Logan was, as a result, forced to use a tripewriter, which immediately packed up. So, to speed up production for last week's paper, Rhodes Watson gave up his beloved wordprocessing, whizzy-gig 512k, twin disc, turbo-charged computer with mag wheels. With it came a set of instructions on how to start it, run it, care for it and not abuse it. Cathy read all of this carefully and started work. All day she slaved away over a hot computer until, when the big hand was on 12 and the little hand on 6, she announced she was finished. Somehow or other, no-one knows the real story, she pushed the detachable keyboard away from her ... and hit the on/off switch. Screen went blank ... and so did three faces watching. No-one had told her how to put her stories onto disc. A full day's work was gone forever. (Cheerful as ever, and ever so graciously, "Lois" reread the instructions and started working all over again). This week, while the typesetter is still on leave, we installed two (almost) new tripewriters ... and it's been back to the dark ages. But we haven't lost a single story ... now, there's progress for you!!! ❑ o o HERE'S an item for snake lovers ... a woman in Caroline Street saw a snake in the yard and had to make a quick decision on whether to run, screaming, into the house ... or stand and fight. Commonsense won and her screams rung round the area. Her husband, who knows a lot about snakes, caught it with a hockey stick and brought it into the house to show her there was nothing to be worried about. Holding it the way Harry Butler used to do on TV, he explained he was going to remove it from their yard and put it in the wild. Wife, using the commonsense approach again, told him to make sure he didn't let go of it and get someone to identify it before letting it go. Husband agreed, they did ... and it was a taipan! o ❑ o MORE on snake above ... husband went ahead and released taipan in the wild. I hope a kookaburra gets it!!! o o o BLOKE wanders into video shop and starts searching for entertainment. Couple nearby are doing same. They drift apart in search of videos and woman winds up near first bloke. Suddenly she finds what she wants and, to handle it properly, frees her hands by giving her purse to bloke next to her. He takes it and waits ... moments later she says to him: "Will this one do, dear?" and looks into face of perfect stranger! He hands her back purse, she, colouring, mutters apology ... and life goes on in the big city!!! ❑ o ❑ SPEAKING of videos, husband and wife watching movie taped from TV the night before for the first time in their lives discovered the job of a fast-forward button. They shortened a rather long movie by about 30 minutes. Both are convinced now that they can afford time to watch TV ... as long as they are prepared to watch shows from the day before! ❑

OF course, that friendliness causes problems for Coast boys in big cities ... one youngster went to stay with uncle and aunty in Brisbane who took him out to see the sights. After walking through Brisbane's Mall, Coast youngster asked uncle how come he didn't know anyone. Puzzled uncle asked what he meant and youngster told him that when his Mum and Dad walked through Yeppoon they waved to everyone and everyone waved back ... and a lot of the time they stopped and talked to people. Uncle gave up trying to explain that wasn't done in big cities ... but why not? o ❑ 0 YOU can learn so much from advertising ... this week's Yeppoon Travel advertisement explains why so many New Zealanders come to live in Australia.
