Yeppoon shops hit council with 'hot potato'

FIVE Coast take-away and food outlets have objected to a baked potato vendor's application to operate on the Yeppoon beachfront during weekend business hours. Sands Fast Food proprietor Ann Ward said she only became aware of the proposal this week and "thinks it stinks" that some "out-oftown" business can come in at any time on the weekend and trade off the cream of the other food outlets' business. In a letter to Livingstone Shire Council, Mrs Ward said if the town was much larger no argument would be given to Coast businesses 'setting up such a proposal on the beachfront. But the Coast doesn't have a large pb-pulation and Mrs Ward said this "itinerant should be allowed to open if it pays rates, rent, electricity, gas and, also buys locally". Mrs Ward said these contributions helped Coast people and without them, "what are we?" Ross Dickson of Seafood and Eat It echoed Mrs Ward's thoughts and declared he was very "snakey" about the whole issue. He only found out about the vendor this week, as had most of the other food proprietors, and said the potato vendor should only be allowed to open his venture if prepared to work the same hours as all the other takeaway and food shops. 0 CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

A CLOTHING salesman from Moteuka in New Zealand has challenged the World Champion of Champion Cooee caller for his title, which goes on line this weekend. Phil Krammer has made the first overseas bid to take-out the World Cooeeing Contest in its 18 year history. Mr Krammer makes his bid, after winning the New Zealand championships in March, on the current champion Greg McCamley who will be defending his title for the fifth time. The line-up of previous title holders includes Dell Jensen, the current world lady champion, Glen Webster, Joan Dobby and the World title holder for the longest sustained cooee, Clarice Sandersen who set a resounding 24.99 seconds cooee to beat. The world cooeeing course from Wreck Point, Cooee Bay, overlooks the Pacific Ocean. It is 400m in length compared to the 150m New Zealand course. The 18-year-old silver cup has never left Australia and the winner is given a replica for keeps and the original is kept on the Coast. When the contests line-up for the titles tomorrow, (Sunday, August 9), they will be competing for$6000 worth of prizes including a holiday for two at Capricorn Iwasaki Resort, a cruise to Great Keppel Island aboard the flagship Victory, and passes to Middle Island Underwater -Observatory and Coral Life Marineland. The Cooee contest will end with a series of bush feats such as damper cooking, freckle counting, cattle calling, husband calling, kookaburra laughing, billy tea drinking, gum leaf blowing and damper and teacle eating. The World Cooee opener is tonight, Saturday, starting at 5pm with a barbecue. The band Sweet Country will entertain during the night and raffles and other entertainment has been organised. The admission price of $5 to the country and western night on Sunday includes a burger from the barbecue.

Million-dollar night club opens in December CONSTRUCTION of a $1.2 million night club and cabaret starts this month in Hill Street, Yeppoon, and will be open early in December. The two-storey building will be constructed on the recently cleared site behind the Club Hotel. The two-storey, four-level night club and cabaret will feature messanine floors giving a theatre effect inside. The project, being developed by Coastbased company Macedory Pty Ltd, is expected to have a final all-up cost of $1.5 million. Project managers are Andrews Construction Pty Ltd of Yeppoon, which is responsible for design and construction in conjunction with Blain, Bremner and Williams and Paul Cruice of Cruice, Andrews and Girlie. John Andrews, of Andrews Constructions Pty Ltd, said sub-contracting packages would be offered for local tenders providing Coast employment during the building phase. A Macedorey spokesman said 34 staff would be recruited to man the night club and cabaret once it opened. He said the completed building would look

rectangular from the outside, but inside a comfortable, modern atmosphere would be created. The club should open in the first week of December and would give residents and visitors the chance to see Australia's best entertainers live on stage plus regular work for local bands. "The Coast has never seen anything like this complex," the spokesman said. "Special effects will be created by $250,000 worth of high-tech Italian lighting we have imported and patrons will relax in luxurious surroundings," he said. "Three bars placed strategically throughout the building will look after everyone where-ever they choose to sit. "There's a cocktail bar, surrounded by glass, a main bar downstairs and a third bar on the second level." The spokesman said the cocktail lounge would be more luxurious than the rest of the building. It would be more up-market with plush furnishings, giving patrons the chance to sit and watch bands in quieter surrounds. The night club will have one main entrance

leading to the cocktail bar and the first level, which has the dance floor. Seating has been provided for 146 people around the dance floor. The mezzanine-style second level will seat about 160 people. From the second level, patrons can walk out onto a 6m by 4m balcony, with views overlooking the islands ... "they'll be able to watch the sun come up on certain all-night functions such as New Year's Eve galas". The building's theatre effect allows patrons to view the stage from everywhere in the club. A $250,000 light, sound and video show will enhance the atmosphere with a variety of shows each night. Acoustic engineers from Brisbane have been engaged to ensure the night club complex sounds great on the inside ... and is quiet outside. "We don't want to annoy nearby residents with loud music at all hours of the night," the Macedorey spokesman said. Noise retention within the building was just one of many details examined by Macedory the stage has its own fully self-contained

dressing rooms, toilets and access from the outside, making it possible to book top entertainers, fashion shows and theatre groups .., and for any community organisation to use. Macedory's spokesman said the group wanted to give the Coast something it "hasn't got and never had, and the topic of discussion all over the State". The spehiial lighting to be installed- will boast new systems not yet seen in Central Queensland. Video screens either side of the stage, in the cocktail lounge and on the balcony, will keep patrons in touch with the music where-ever they are. The spokesman said the club was also planning to provide a commuter bus service for the Coast and Rockhampton. This still has to be looked at but is another feature Macedory hopes to offer. The club will have 30 car parking bays and plenty of street parking. Competitive bar prices, an extensive wine list and comprehensive menu are proposed to make the night club and cabaret a success from the opening night.

YEPPOON SHOPS HAND HOT POTATO TO LSC factor and if any business is given the go-ahead for a vending licence it should go firstly to a Coast operator. Studio One's Stewart Thomas had contacted several councillors about the matter. He said he felt the vendor should be contributing to the Coast but also made a suggestion that council should call tenders for the spots along the beachfront giving Coast food outlets a chance to sell on the esplanade. Spokesmen for both The Deli and Sandy's, aren't against free enterprise but think someone coming in and taking the cream of weekend trading isn't fair. Sandy's spokesman said for "many months of the year trading isn't very profitable and the Coast businesses only had the one enterprise. to rely on."

If it's raining, he doesn't have to turn up, and on a Tuesday night when there may be no-one around he doesn't have to keep the shop doors open like the rest of us," Mr Dickson said. It was also Seafood and Eat It's policy to shop locally. "What will this person be contributing to the Coast? Will he be paying rates, rent and also wages," he said. "At the moment, my wage bill is about $70,000 a year and all my vegetables and fish are bought on the Coast." It seems most of the outlets believe a businesses contribution to the Coast is a major

COOWONGA State Primary school celebrates its 90th birthday tomorrow (Sunday). Festivities start at 10am with the signing of the schools registar followed by the opening and roll-call of past and present students. Principle, Norm Kerle, said about 250 past students had notified the school of intensions to attend the birthday celebrations. Guests on the day will include Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton who will open the function at 11am, Livingstone Shire council chairman Cr John Bowen and the Education department's regional inspector Jerry Jakes. A barbecue, treeplanting and fashion parade follow the opening. In the afternoon games and old-style

elected a vice president, as was a former president, Pat Andersen, who also accepted the position as treasurer. Both said they would prefer new members to take their positions so that Coast business people who have not previously been involved with the chamber can attend meetings and accept executive positions. Yvonne St Martin was elected secretary (replacing Mrs Noyes, who stepped down after 10 years). CTDO development and tourism representatives are Lew Taylor and John Lever. Mr McClelland paid tribute to both former president John Peach and Mrs Noyes for their hard work over so many years. He also paid tribute to the 'old guard' chamber members who have carried on the chamber's work. Mr McClelland said he was hoping to substantially increase membership by encouraging new business people on the Coast to attend meetings and play an active role in developing commerce on the Coast. "The Coast's business people have the ideas to make this area grow. The chamber is their forum where they can be heard," he said. To encourage new voices, a number of executive positions were deliberately left vacant at the annual meeting so that "new blood" could be offered a meaningful role. Mr McClelland asked anyone interested in joining the chamber to phone him on 39 1954.

YEPPOON Taxis proprietor Andrew McClelland was elected president of the Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry at its annual general meeting on Tuesday night. He said his initial objectives were to improve the chamber's profile and awareness on the Coast. He intends surveying the business community to find out what business people want from their chamber of commerce. Mr McClelland said he wants to promote trade within the Coast and to make the chamber of commerce the business people's liaison pipeline to the Livingstone Shire Council. He said he had spoken with many business people before accepting the position as president. The council had become a major topic of conversation. "Many of the Coast's commercial and industrial ratepayers felt they were getting a raw deal compared with urban and rural ratepayers," Mr McClelland said. "They point to areas such as Rockhampton where the council provides a mall and parking areas, and they asked what they were getting from Livingstone Shire Council in return for their rate dollar." The chamber elections resulted in a mix of old and new with a feeling expressed by all at the meeting that it was time for "new blood" to make its presence felt. Former secretary Connie Noyes was

MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton is investigating the possibility of getting more pensioner units built in Yeppoon. He said he had received numerous phone calls about pensioner accommodation and was concerned at the situation. There appeared to be a shortange of accommodation for pensioners on the Coast. There were seven Queensland Housing Commission units at 68 Young Street and 10 at 22 William Street. • He said Yeppoon was a major retirement centre but provision of housing was a severe drain on pensioner incomes, particularly because rental housing was scarcer and more expensive following the Federal Government's decision to remove the negative gearing taxation concessions on rental accommodation. Mr Hinton said he would talk to Works and Housing Minister Ivan Gibbs about the situation.

competitions will be held for the children at the festivities. At 3.30pm the school will be planting a time capsule with various items used in schools today including reading books, photos and letters. The capsule will be opened in 1997 at the school's centenary. Mr Kerle said a lot of effort had gone into organising the day. Displays of old and new uniforms worn by students will be included in the fashion parade, and two classrooms will highlight the change in education over the last 90 years. Mr Kerle said some people would be travelling long distances to attend the function, with some travelling from Brisbane in the south and Cairns in the north, to attend.

"It seems this vendor has other interests and doesn't only have to rely on the baked potato business. "A vendor on the beachfront might detract from the shopping centre near the beachfront. "Also, if they let one person in, doesn't it set a precedent for a whole heap of other vendors on the beachfront?" the spokesman said. Denny's spokesman said there were two sides to having the baked potato vendor. Firstly it would be great to have such a business open but if the precendent was set and a whole heap of vendors came during the better trading periods, it would detract from the food shops which had to Open every day of the year, the spokesman said. The baked potato vending application goes before council next week.

CCTO expects record numbers ABOUT 150 are expected to attend the Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation's annual general meeting next week to hear Australian Tourist Commission managing director John S Rowe. CCTO president Howard Rodda said the expected roll-up of close to 150 CCTO members and friends will create an attendance record. The annual general meeting will be held on Thursday night (August 13) at the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort. "Since its formation in 1981, the CCTO has attracted a very strong following of dedicated members whose primary objective is to promote out beautiful coastline," Mr Rodda said..


Guest speaker Mr Rowe will be a guest of the Capricorn 'Iwasaki Resort on the night and will fly out to Darwin the following morning. The Australian Tourist Commission is proud of its achievements with a 12 per cent increase in overseas visitor numbers so far this year. Mr Rodda said the ATC handled the Paul Hogan 'Shrimp on the barbie' advertisements which have had quite an impact on the international market. Representatives of major Central Queensland tourist and industry groups, Members of Parliament and Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen and councillors will attend the meeting.

Police walking through Yeppoon to be 'on-the-spot' when needed THE boys in blue have traded their desks for walking shoes ... and now Coast people can expect to see officers patrolling the main street at night. Coast people may have been surprised to see 'two police officers recently patrolling the street but Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer said the patrols would be made whenever the officers were available. Sgt Tanzer said the Yeppoon station was only a small one and it was hard to have constant patrols of the Street. Not only would the patrols give officers a chance to walk. the streets but it also gives them an opportunity to talk with shop owners, Sgt Tanzer said. He said it also was possible for the police to be on-the-spot if some kind of crime was committed.

Crime was the sergeant's topic of discussion when he addressed this week's giggle and gossip group at the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort. Sgt Tanzer had thought of a novel way to convey his message. He counted the number of unlocked cars as he drove into the resort. He said about half of the cars were unlocked and potential targets for break and enters. This was not always the case because some locked cars were also vandalised but he stressed it was harder to get into a locked car than an unlocked one. In the past year, the number of reported crimes has risen from 106 to 150 cases, an increase of 33 per cent. The number of break and enters to vehicles was 38. Sgt Tanzer highlighted this was only the reported cases. Exact figures will not be known until all cases are reported. A lot of people don't want to get involved with the police or something happening at their neighbour's place. The station accepts anonymous calls but just asks people to watch out for any thing suspicious. Sgt concluded his talk with some helpful pointers that might "nip crime in the bud". o Be a concerned citizen: report to police illegal or suspicious acitivities; give all information you have to investigation officers; testify in court if you are a witness to a crime. o Don't become a victim: protect your children, never let young ones play in public areas unattended. Don't let children hitchhike or frequent troublesome locations; when your car is unattended never leave your keys in it and always lock it; don't go out without locking all doors and windows of house, garage and out buildings. o Be a good neighbour: keep an eye on neighbours' homes when they are away; encourage strong community involvement; join neighbours in helping correct situations that threaten peace and safety of the community; support local police. Sgt Tanzer hopes the officers patrolling the streets would also encourage people to look out for crime and that their presenCe would deter. someone from committing a crime.

BYFIELD State School will get additional facilities to cater for pre-school children. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said the early education centre was planned for the 1987/88 capital works programme with construction to be completed during 1988/89. He said he would have been happier if construction could have been completed this financial year because there were pre-school children at Byfield who were now without facilities. However Byfield children could attend the new facility at Farnborough which opened recently. Mr Hinton said the announcement was still good news_for Byfield parents because it would be open in 18 months at a cost of about $90,000.

Matron Gus Moore, MBE, settles in to new home at Railway Hotel MATRON Gus Moore, MBE, has moved from her Hill Street address to a pleasant unit at the Railway Hotel.

I Radiators * Windscreens Fitted I I Panel Beating * Plastic Welding I .


El ABOVE: Matron Gus Moore, phone in hand, has settled in at her unit at the Railway Hotel after her Hill Street home was demolished to make way for a new night club and cabaret complex.

I Ili




Her former home was pulled down to make way for a night club and cabaret complex. She was offered alternate accommodation at the Railway and has been told she can stay there as long as she likes. As soon as she moved in she had the phone connected, settled a chair in front of the colour television ... and carried on life as usual with visits to the many people and groups who keep her as active in retirement as she was in her working years. Matron Moore, (or Gus, if you're game enough to call her that) is a living legend ... the woman who delivered or was present at the birth of nearly every baby born at Yeppoon Hospital from the early 1960s until her retirement in 1975. Ask anyone who remembers her days at the old hospital and they'll say she was a kind but strict matron. She spent a lifetime looking after people and was awarded an MBE in recognition of her career ... plus was made Livingstone Shire Council's Australia Day Citizen of the Year. She has won respect from all generations ... but her original decision to enter nursing was only made when a chance vacancy occurred at the old St Andrew's Hospital in Rockhampton. Like teenagers today, Matron Moore took the first job offered and made it her career. It was a decision she said last week she had never regretted. Cyclones, makeshift hospitals and changing technology never deterred her from her work. Although the Coast has laid claim to Matron Moore as its very own, much of her nursing career was spent in Rockhampton, except for four years out west. She was appointed Matron of Yeppoon Hospital in the early '60s. So many people recall Matron Moore busily making sure Yeppoon Hospital was running smoothly and efficiently. They talk of her booming voice ... and how children were never frightened of her. She obviously has a special soft spot for children. She comforted them for 15 years at Yeppoon and later for 10 years at St Brendan's College. Her decade at the college started after retirement from Yeppoon Hospital in 1975. She administered her famous "Moore medicine" (tender loving care) to the boys ... especially the Year Eights who were away from home for the first time and very, very homesick.

Broken bones, chicken pox, colds and other ailments were brought to Matron Moore who patiently cured the problem. As if looking after the boys wasn't enough, Matron Moore dedicated her spare time to helping other people. She helped the elderly by working on mealson-wheels, numerous collections and appeals, the Endeavour Foundation and many other charitable organisations. Today, from her Railway Hotel unit, she keeps in touch with many of these organisations and keeps abreast of what's happening in the groups and around town. Recalling her early days in nursing, Matron Moore said this week when she started "it was mainly hard domestic work ... washing patients and making beds". She talked about the days when all trainee nurses converged on the Rockhampton Base Hospital for lectures. They were taught "everything a nurse should know, and more". They were put to work in every ward and where-ever else they were needed. Working conditions have changed, too. She remembers working hour after hour and never daring to claim overtime. Today, awards and unions protect nursing staff which, according to Matron Moore, is "probably a good thing". "Nowadays, nurses work in shifts, with breaks in between," she said. And after recalling so many days from the past, Matron Moore remarks that her memory is fading ... then launches into a discussion on events happening now on the Coast. Then she recalls how Yeppoon looked when she made occasional visits as a young nurse and later when she was posted here permanently. "There were a lot more people to be seen on the Coast during holidays then, and the beaches and other tourtist spots were crowded," she said. She remembers treating sting victims but said this had changed today with many receiving first-aid from the ambulance and only badly stung victims being admitted to hospital. From her new headquarters it's obvious she is quite comfortable and enjoying the change of surroundings. It's even closer to the meals-onwheels kitchens!

Mr Brysen said all the space in the townhall had been filled, except for some small footage around the stalls. If anyone was interested, they should contact Mr Brysen on 27 3022, office hours, within a week. He said two of the spaces had been filled by Brisbane companies: Thompson Lapidiary and Supplies; Celeste Jewellery Supplies. These companies have various stones, jewellery and will be on display along with local gem miners, facetting displays and machinery. Potters, china painters, Yvonne Saint Martin's herb garden, Amaroo Art group and bric-a-brac displays with doilies and other items can been seen during the show. Mr Brysen said the large numbers of entrants

had exceeded the association's expectations, especially in the facetting sections. • Years ago, people thought it was an artform which required an educated Years ago, people thought facetting was an artform which required skill and education but with the help of modem technology, machinery now does 95 per cent of the work leaving only five per cent for craftsmenship, Mr Brysen said. He said, the gem and mineral association was a family hobby. Families can go rock hunting take a picnis along, and generally have a good time. Ninety-nine per cent of the association consisted of family groups. If people are interested they should come along to the Gem and Mineral Show being held for the first time on the Capricorn Coast in the Yeppoon Town Hall. "It'll probably surprise you, the amount of variety and interesting aspects offered," Mr Brysen said. Any money raised from the weekend goes toward funding the Central Queensland organisation which helps its branches pay for courses, guest speakers including cutting the costs of trips.

Bill Shuttlewood presents his 9th annual pensioners' league report ,

YEPPOON Pensioners' League annual general meeting was held last week and reelected president Bill Shuttlewood delivered the following annual report. I present this report of the activities of the Yeppoon Pensioners' 'League for 1986/87. It is my ninth such report and, I think, the most productive. Membership for the year totalled 164. One hundred and fifty-six members and eight associates. This does not include the 33 members gained in a membership drive at the recent Yeppoon Show by district organiser louise Barnes and Rockhampton Pensioners League president Ernie Schmidt. These members will be included in the figures presented for 1987-88. Also in the year under view three members have died. Financially, the league is steady as shown in the the report submitted to the treasuerer Joe McIntyre. The two main items of expenditure was subscription fees and rental of the Yeppoon Town. There was a move to have the subscription fees reduced by 50 per cent at the recent Warwick State Conference but it was defeated. The association will be asking Livingstone Shire Council to give the league a rental rebate. After a campaign initiated by the League in 1976, the Government gave a rebate of $72 a year to pensioner users of electricity in Queensland at the beginning of 1987 but electricity was increased by four per cent. "I wander how much the State Government made on this deal." Your League protested against Yeppoon Railway Station closing its main door and I am pleased the vestibule is now available for use by members waiting for bus transport. The League also joined in a protest against the closing the access to the beach -via John Street which was successful. Because of complaints by members and visitos, your League has asked Livingstone Shire Council to fit handrails to pedestals in the Yeppoon Town Hall toilets and also at the side entrance leading to the ramp. Following a 10-year campaign for a pedestrian crossing to the link the administrative and business sections of Yeppoon, Shire chairman Cr John Bowen has assured me this necessary amenity will go, ahead this financial year. Your League was represented at a meeting called by Member for Capricornia Keith Wright to consider the feasibility of a nursing home on the Capricorn Coast. Representatives of all Coast organisations attended the meeting and a steering committe of David Timbs, Dr Ramiah and Rev Svensen was elected to draw up a submission to the Government. Two members of this League have been recommended for admission to nursing homes in Rockhampton in the past three months which highlights the need for a nursing home on the Coast. Socially, it has been a successful year. The League held 11 socials and attended socials at district pensioner circles. The Rockhampton Community Service and Mr Wright supplied a bus for the Keith Wright Pensioners' Concert at the Municiple Theatre, Rockhampton and Yeppoon Rotary supplied transport for their annual pensioners concert held at the same Rockhampton venue. Both nights were enjoyable. On July 1 this year, Mr Wright and the Rockhampton Community Service Club combined to sponsor the first Capricorn Coast Musical and dance afternoon. It was a super function and is to become an annual affair. On your behalf I thank Yeppoon Rotary, Rockhampton Community Service Club and Keith Wright for their efforts on behalf of this League. The Christmas dinner was a successful function. A feature was the beautiful Christmas cake made and iced by Dot Close who has performed this service for the past nine years. After two years compering the monthly socials, Lana and Joe McIntyre have intimated they will not be continuing in that capacity. We thank them for the excellent way in which they compered. The Entertainers, a group of Yeppoon Pensioner League members, under the conductorship of Lynda Leech, are thanked for their monthly performances at socials andfor

decorating the stage at these functions. During Lynda's absence, Marje Cornell stood in as accompanist. • Bill and Rene Jones are thanked for the entertaining musical sessions before and during the monthly socials. Bus captain, Patricia King, convenor Ann Lehman, assistant secretary Lorna McIntyre, "Man Friday" George Madsen and the gentlemen who serve the tea and help with the stacking of tables and chairs, have again done a commendable job. Worthy of special mention are the ladies who assist the convenor, an assistance which I hope will continue. I thank my executive for the help they gave me over the period of review, especially my senior vice-president Patricia King, who deputised for me during my periods of absence. And, I thank you, the people who encouraged and helped me and all the officers who have been a big factor in the things achieved. The pensioner movement on the Capricorn Coast suffered a tragic loss with the death of Emu Park Pensioners' League president Joan Burns. I offer the sympathy of Yeppoon Pensioner League members, to Joan's family. Your League has received a deal of publicity over the past year and I thank Capricorn Coast Mirror's John and Suzy Watson and Brian Dorey, The Morning Bulletin, for their part in placing the views and social activities of Yeppoon Pensioners before the public. Each month Dick and Betty Tyrer of Capricorn Fruit Supplies give two fruit and vegetable trays to the League as first and second prizes in the social committee's raffle. Other donations during the year were: Dr Mark Sykes $25; Stewart and Brumm's Chemist $25; St James Guild $10; Keith Wright Christmas dinner cards and jewellery; Cr John Bowen basket of groceries; David Higgins goods; Denham Brothers goods to value of $15. I feel the report wouldn't be complete without congratulating the Livingstone Shire council for upgrading the town's footpaths over the past year which has made them much safer for elderly pedestrians. Also for its support in the move to obtain an aged persons' home on the Capricorn Coast.

Veterans remember

CAPRICORN Coast Vietnam veterans will celebrate a special day on August 16 at the. Yeppoon Cenotaph in Beaman Park. August 16 is Long Tahn Day ... remembrance day for Vietnam veterans. Long Tahn is the place where Australian soldiers were involved in their first major contact in Vietnam. The Vietnam Legion Veterans Association Capricorn Coast branch was formed in June this year and the remembrance service will be the first of its kind held in this area. Legion spokesman Les Nicholas said that the veterans will meet at the Yeppoon RSL Hall at 10.45am for the service at 1 lam. It is expected that the service will take 30 minutes ... a short address will be made by. Salvation Army Envoy Bob Richards, wreathlaying and the Last Post will be played by Roy Savage and Les Nicholas. "We would like veterans from past wars and conflicts to attend and members of the public are welcome," Mr Nicholas said. "It is not a time for sorrow, it is a time for remembrance."

Parents' Week YEPPOON State High school celebrates parents week from August 10 to 15.

Coast committee preparing fresh nursing home submission to govt

0 ABOVE: The best bargain at the Yeppoon Charity Market on Saturday mornings is a free copy of the New Testament available from Baptist minister Pastor Kevin Deuter.

A FRESH submission, for a nursing home on the Capricorn Coast, is now being prepared for presentatation to the Commonwealth Government. . The submission is the result of the public meeting held at Livingstone Shire Council chambers last month to meet with representatives of the Commonwealth Department and Member for Capricornia Keith Wright, to discuss the Coast's chances of having a nursing home built. What came out of that meeting was a steering committee comprising David Timbs, convenor, Reverend Nyree Svensen, who has been involved with other nursing home submissions, and Cr Krish Ramiah, who also has knowledge of other Coast submissions for a nursing home. The committee members have since met to discuss the new submission and have pooled their knowledge to create an argument to put to the Commonwealth department. One of the fundamental differences arising from the public meeting in July was the need for the Coast to be considered as a separate entity from Rockhampton. Mr Timbs said in the past the Coast had been treated as an extension of Rockhampton, which had a number of nursing home beds, and as a result there had been a regular transfer of aged people from the Coast to institutions in Rockhampton. "In so many of these cases there has been much distress and hardship caused by the move, both to the aged person and families unable to travel on a regular basis to the institutions," Mr Timbs said. To get the required Government approval

Environmental park plan for creeks MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton has asked National Parks and Wildlife Service Minister Geoff Muntz to have his officers investigate creation of a large environmental park in the Coorooman/Cawarral Creeks area. He said the area, north of Keppel Sands, contained vacant Crown land and some areas of freehold land. The gazettal of an environmental park would not interfere with the rights of freehold property owners. "It is important that critical areas of fish habitat, such as this area, should be locked up for conservation purposes," he said. "This particular area is too small for management as a national park under the department's present guidelines."

Mr Hinton said another environmental park proposal, Vallis Park on top of the Bluff, Yeppoon, was nearing completion. Mr Muntz told him all Lands Department and National Parks and Wildlife Service examinations and reporting in the area was completed. The proposal was now in the hands of the Mapping and Survey Department in the final stage before gazettal. "The area, when available, will need to be properly managed by the department with designated walking tracks," Mr Hinton said. "It will be a unique area of flora and fauna within easy walking, distance of the town centre."

for the nursing home, the committee has to to develop a detailed report and well argued case. The report will be based on the high percentage of elderly on the Coast, taken from the 1986 census soon to be releaSed, compared with the overall State average. Mr Timbs said the draft submission was now being written stating the effectiveness of present community-based care services, including Blue Nursing. Service and Meals on Wheels, but reflecting that these services could not provide for those in need of nursing home care. The report will give details of "hardship cases" caused by the transfer of family or friends to Rockhampton institutions. Mr Timbs would like ansi,one with a case to contact him on 33 6649. He would also like to hear from former residents who would return to the Coast if a nursing home was available. The steering committee will call a public meeting at a later date after the submission has been sent to the Government. Mr Timbs said once the submission was submitted it would be the Coast's task to "lobby' every possible official politician, in fact any one who may help the Coast get its nursing home"

ALP branch calls for democracy ALP Capricorn Coast branch president David Timbs said this week members had called on the Federal Government to legislate to bring about a democratic system of voting in Queensland. He said this should happen as a matter of urgency. Mr Timbs said that on July 11, the Federal election, "we had a fair systemin which the ALP won the clear majority of Queensland Federal seats". "That result highlighted the glaring injustice of the State Electoral system," he said. "The Federal system is conducted fairly, on the basis of one vote, one vale. By comparison, the electoral arrangement in Queensland is an affront to democracy." Mr Timbs said that at the State election last November, the National Party won 55 per cent of the seats with 39 per cent of the votes. "We are calling on the Federal Government to actively pursue the dismantlement of Queensland's grossly undemocratic four zonal system," he said.

WORK experience is great ... but not long enough. That was the general feeling of seven girls from St Ursula's College who did work experience at businesses on the Capricorn Coast last week. But it was also unanimous among the girls that work experience was exactly what teenagers need to find the right career. Many of the girls had done work experiencebefore because it is a programme that runs from year 10 to 12 at St Ursula's. Some year 12 girls were not involved in the programme because of a Heron Island biology trip scheduled for the same week. The girls arrived at their chosen businesses on Monday and attended throughout the whole week. Year 12 student who enjoyed her work experience at the Commenwealth bank, was Lyn Murphy. "Being a bank clerk is okay. Actually, when I think about it .:. it's quite fun! "Some parts I enjoy more than others. The people are nice but there's an awful lot of paper work," she said. "Sometimes it gets -a bit monotonous ... but I like it better than school because there's something different to do each day." Part of Lyn's job includes filling out forms ... "It's a bit embarressing when you have people watching you fill out forms and you make a mistake and have to start again. But I'm lucky, because everyone takes tome out to help me." Year 10 student Kylie Sheppard chose to go to the Yeppoon Hospital. Her supervisor, Elizabeth Bergman, is the administrative assistant. She said that work experience was a good idea, because it gave the students and insight into what jobs are really like. Kylie also found work experience worthwhile. "I've found out what it's like and it's changed all my ideas of what working in a Kylie also foUnd work experience worthwhile "I've found out what it's like and it's changed all

my ideas of what working in a hospital is like ... or anywhere for that matter! It's nothing at all what I expected it to be.", Anthea Melanie is doing her work experience as a typist in the Yeppoon ANZ Bank. "I've enjoyed it. It's different, but not much harder than school. I didn't know there was so much work in working with the tellers," Anthea said. "I'm interested in a banking career. Though it's not really what I had expected. Now I've had this work experience at the bank I know what I will look for in a job." Majella Tanzer, also a year 11 student, was a work experience haridresser at Elayne Green's GB's Hair Salon. "Now I've done hairdressing I'll certainly consider it as a career. I've always wanted to be a hairdresser," Majella said. "It's really good. I've been shampooing hair, cleaning up, answering the phone and showing customers in ... it's what I expected to do. "I'm glad there's work experience, it's very helpful. You can decide what career you want, without being stuck with the first job you come across. Last year I worked at the courthouse but both these jobs are so different you just can't compare them." Summing up work experience for year 11 student Lisa Bishton: "It's pretty interesting stuff!" Lisa is a work experience dental assistantreceptionist at John Christensen's dental surgery. Lisa said she was really enjoying the work. "You have a variety of things to do. I though I'd be doing the filing and mailing, but instead I've been watching people get fillings and cleaning utensils ... I've only done filing once." "They are really nice people. They explain everything to me and he,p me a lot." Does Lisa want to be a dental assistant as a • career? "Yes, it'd be great!" Year 11 student Jacynta Emblem did her work experience at Yeppoon's Westpac Bank. "It's really good, but a bit confusing at times," she said. "People are really helpful. I'll definitely try to work in a bank when I finish school. Last year I did work experience at the travel agency because I wanted to be an air hostess. I like it a lot, but decided it was not what I really wanted to do. So, because of that I decided to work in a bank this time. "The only problem is that I wish work experience was longer because there is so much more to learn about the job. For instance, I didn't know there was so much work in being a balancing and a trading bank examiner." Nicole Hennessy, a year 10 student, did her work experience at Cooberrie Park.. "It's a lot harder than I thought it would be. I thought that I'd only be feeding the animals and cleaning out their cages. But instead of that, I've been doing the groundsman's work too. That includes raking up the leaves, cutting back trees ... what some people would call men's work. I've really been enjoying it," Nicole said. "After I've done this work experience I will consider working as an animal attendantgroundswoman very seriously. "The only trouble with work experience is that it is not long enough for you to find out what the job is really like. It'd be great if it went for two weeks instead of one." I, Alicia Emery, have found work experience good and agree with all the girls. It has shown me how hard it is to be a journalist. John and Suzy have put up with a lot from me and they are still living, so I've got another thing to say about journalists ... they're tough. On behalf of the girls doing work experience I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the employers for taking us in and showing us what being in the workforce is all about. Thanks.

ARTS SUBJECTS C I GUESS I have always been interested in journalism. I liked doing essays at school and I was always interested in news (happenings, events, politics). When I began to seriously contemplate journalism as a career, I was advised to take Arts subjects, which would give me a basic grounding in writing skills. By Arts, I mean subjects such as English, Geography, Histories and Economics. No matter what education experts say, kids who do Arts subjects in Senior are at a definite disadvantage when it comes to receiving a TE (tertiary entrance) Score. My previous headmaster, and numerous teachers, were furious at me when I decided to do Arts. They told me if I had taken straight Maths/Sciences subjects I could easily have got a 990 TE Score. I realised this, but I also believed that the writing experience I received from doing subjects such as Ancient and Modern History, Geography and Economics would be more beneficial in the long run. At times it was frustrating in high school. Doing Arts subjects, my friends and I were constantly informed that we were taking the easy way out; that only kids too dumb to do Maths would do Ancient History. However I persevered. I ended up with a TE Score of 975. I got mostly Sevens and some Sixes in Senior, yet I know of students doing Maths/Science who managed to get 990 while doing only average work in English. Anyway, it was enough to get me into the course I wanted ... the Bachelor of Business course, majoring in Journalism, at the Queensland Institute of Technology, is one of the most highly recommended journalism courses in the State. The year i applied, more than 3000 students were seeking acceptance to the course, which only took 90 first-year students.

That 90 included two other strands; Advertising and Public Relations. So, in effect, only 30 would-be journalists began that year. One thing you have to expect when you start the course is to be thrown in at the deep end. From the second week our lecturers had us out writing and finding news stories. For a shy person, you either learn to cope with it or leave. But a great personality isn't always enough to sustain you through the course. It's no bludge job. You have to be prepared to put in long hours. The drop-out rate is incredible. In the final year there are only 12 full-time journalism students left. But if you can hack the course it's worth it in the end. The practical experience you gain is tremendous. First-year subjects concentrate on initial journalistic skills — interviewing, the structure of news stories — and later in the year you move on to feature writing. Second year concentrates on the electronic media. You spend a year working for 4EB, an ABC-affiliated radio station. This is the ethnic station in Brisbane. QIT journalism students are responsible for the collecting, writing and presentation of all English news bulletins and of an English current affairs segment which goes to air three times a week. Emphasis is also placed on documentary work and students are expected to complete several filmed documentaries before the course is completed.

In third year, journalism students are encouraged to undertake professional work experience. In other words, they are expected to contibute to their place of work experience. The hardest thing about the course, and I guess tertiary education in general, is finding you can't just breeze through your subjects as you did at high school and come out with top grades. When you have grown used to topping your classes, college certainly takes you down a peg or two. But you have to remember that as long as you are maintaining average or above average marks, and you are still in the course, then you are doing well. I know a couple of kids who got. a 990 at school (they took Maths/Science) yet they have been the first to drop the course. You have to have a solid grounding in essay and assignment work. Good grades in Maths won't get you very far, and you may have to sacrifice some subjects you like, or do well in, in favour of subjects that will be of benefit to you as a journalism student. I have five more months before the end of my course and, in a way, that's frightening. Having gone straight from high school to college, I've always had the security of regular study to fall back on. I'm not sure What I really intend to do next year. I know I have to start looking for work soon', but I'm still undecided as to what field I want to go into. My work on the Capricorn Coast Mirror has been enjoyable and I feel that working a newspaper would be good. But I also have a strong interest in radio. Television is not really for me; news and current affairs is too commercialised on TV and, as such, is limiting, I feel, for a journalist. I guess I have a lot of decision-making to do over the next few months. As to what the future holds for, who knows?

QUEENSLANDERS will be asked to consider taking the Labour Day holiday in October rather than in May. Employment, Small Business and Industrial Affairs Minister Vince Lester said all public holidays except Christmas and Boxing Days fall in the first half of the year creating a "feast" then a "famine" of holidays. "I will be asking employer and employee groups, and other interested parties, if they would like to consider changing Labour Day to the first Monday in October, or some time around there," he said.

Canberra, NSW and South Australia observe the holiday in October and other States in March. The first celebration of Labour Day in Queensland was on March 1, 1858, when an eight-hours celebration day march was held. May 1 has been observed as Labour Day in Queensland since 1893 and has been a public holiday since 1913. Labour Day celebrations are held in New Zealand, Canada and the United States in September, in November in Japan and in May in Great Britain and the Soviet Union.

Nomads and Billabongs provide cliff-hanging result in basketball A second half cliff-hanger occured during the basketball game between Nomads and Billabongs on Monday night. With a half-time score of 25-13 to Billabongs, it boded as though the game was all wrapped up, but a comeback by Nomads began to cast some doubt. Nomads came within seven points of Billabongs but was not strong enough, to win the game. Sue Stevenson hit a tremendous 22 points out of the teams 41 while Nomads' Sue Asher played an all-round excellent game and scored 13 of the 31. The Saints v Tigas game was the opposite, Brian Frainy played his first senior game with Tigas on Monday night. He met up with experienced players such as Jim Shackleton and Carrot Cambell. Frainy was never given a free hand during the game .... Cambell showed his experience, his defence and skill were too much and prevented Frainy from shinning. The final score was Saints 74, Tigas 31. Last weeks' coaching clinic was even more of success than expected. Forty-two people ranging from 8 to 18 years attended and were coached for the day by Kathy Hamill. Three were new players and hope to join teams for the coming season which has only just begun.

For this final meeting on the dirt surface before racing resumes at the end of the year on grass, the committee framed a four-race programme, as a safegaurd against excessive wear and tear during the meeting.

Until three-quarter time Yeppoon had many good players and with the scores tied up and the match being played at home we all thought that the Swans were in with a big chance, however too many legs just wouldn't go in the last quarter. Boyne Island ran away with the game in the final 20 minutes but although winners, were left to ride home on the bus licking their wounds. Chris Bourke and Brett Motton, the two most consistent and best players during the year, were once again at the fore front with top all round performance. "Rocky" McGarth became disorientated and started listening for. bells not whistles and "fizz"Fraser was again as solid as a rock at full back. . Greg Brown finished his war off with possibly his best game as he bulldozed his way around the centre while 'Steakhouse King' J.R. Heathcote continued to improve and must rate as one of the top rovers in the competition. Col Jamieson won the battle of the giants both in the middle and around the ground and

young Garth Hutton showed a cool head on the backline when things were tight, taking many fine marks. Best Players: Bourke, Heathcote, Taylor, Motton, Jamieson and Brown. Goalkickers: Munro 4; Motton 3; Brown, Street 2; Dell, McGarth 1. Final score: 13-11-89, 18-12-120. The reserve grade performance was the poorest of the season and at no time did the side look like a grand finalist. When the going got tough too many Swans took a hike and for some reason it seemed to be the vogue to simply stick a foot out or a limp arm instead of throwing their bodies in. It's about time everyone realised the finals are here and that there is still a lot of hard work to be done and that they should be throwing themselves behind Phil Munro. Back to the game. Peter O'Shannessu had a blinder and is definitely the find of the year. He out-jumped, out-marked and out-ran the opposition. Kelvin hockyer showed his teamates what dosier was all about as he ran and tackled himself to a standstill. "Potsie" Roberts was the only other player to have a go for the four quarters and did so with his customary dash. Without doubt this Reserve grade side has enough talent to go on, so let's hope that they can produce the goods from now on. Best players: O'Shannessy, Lockyer, Roberts and A Tickner. Goalkickers: Gardner 3. Final scores: 3-10-28, 9-11-65.

Brothers Neil and Peter Malick played a cliffhanger in the last of three games but Neil proved the eventual winner. • Later in the night, Peter surprised both himself and his team, to defeat Dave Ryan in three games. Dolphins won both sets of doubles. On the other table, Bog Factory, with two fillins, won against Marvels, who were also playing with one short.

Capcoast rugby A graders close season near top 0 By Mick Bangers CAPCOAST Rugby team ended the 1987 fixture rounds on a high note, when they humbled Biloela to the tune of 21-12. The win left Capcoast in second place on the table behind Pioneers ... a great team effort. So often has been the case this year, the forwards dominated their opponents from the kick-off and this immediately brought pressure on to the Bilo line. After a few hiccups, Mark Boyd crossed wide out after a superb ruck ball win to Capcoast. Boydy failed to convert his own try and left the score 4-0. A missed penalty attempt by Biloela's Warren Wilson a few minutes later saw Capcoast drive play upfield with good fOrward rushes and clever kicking. The forwards drove to within metres of the Biloela line, the ball was spun wide through the backline and Dave Weble scampered over in the corner ... a great team try. The conversion attempt was wide and Capcoast held an 8-0 advantage. Wilson then potted a penalty goal a few minutes later to make the score 8.3. Capcoast then seemed to drop a gear or two and idled into half-time. This could be particularly dangerous in future weeks and a betterside will capitilise on it. The second half started with forwards in charge once again. They were taking command of every facet of play. However, the first try came when Mark Boyd pounced on spilled ball in the Biloela back line and outsprinted the defence to scored a good individual try. Dave Ruck converted from in front and this made the score 14-3. Biloela replied immediately with a penalty but this brought the forwards on to a roll once again driving down into the Bilo quarter. After another clean ball win from a ruck, the ball sped to Paul Harbottle coming in from fullback, who was bundled into touch a metre or so from the line. From the ensuring lineout, John Atkinson steam-rolled over for his second try in as many games to bring the score 21-6. Dave Ruck missed the conversion but landed a good penalty a few minutes earlier. For the second time in the match Capcoast then seemed to go into hibernation for the last 10 minutes and this time Biloela took advantage with a late try after some untidy defence from Capcoast. This make the full time score 21-12. For Capcoast, Mark Boyd, Mike Bongers, Ian Hutton, John Atkinson had strong games as did Mark Thompson who gave 110 per cent. This week Capcoast takes on Biloela again in the qualifying final to meet Pioneers in the major-semi. The game is 3pm Sunday(Tomorrow) at Rugby Park.

VISITOR to Capricorn Coast dropped into the office on Monday and, during the course of the conversation, remarked on how much she enjoyed the item last week about the nude man in James Street and Suzy seeing him ... "Aren't you lucky," she said to Suzy, "I haven't seen anything like that. I've never even had an obscene phone call." Cathy "Lois Lane" Logan, overhearing that remark, said: "What's your phone number?" 0 0 0

SOME months ago, after a lot of trauma involving the council, Bus Stop and No Standing signs went up in Normanby Street. Then came the hassles of policing the signs because people were used to parking there ... and kept doing so. Well, last week, certain shopkeepers noticed a particular car pull up and disgorge a few people. It's number plate was 699 PFN. The driver and passengers? Oh, just Livingstone Shire Councillors taking lunch from the budget meeting. o 0 o BY the way, there was a Main Roads car in front of that car. Well, no problems policing the signs ... we've got the top people making sure no one can park there!!! o

NOT a lot of the Press releases or handouts make it into the Mirror because we prefer to carry Coast stories, but the RACQ sent an item in that could be classified as "educational". It concerns the points demerit system. The RACQ said generally, a driver could be called upon by police to show cause why a licence should not be suspended, if the driver accumulates nine demerit points for traffic offences within a continuous two-year period. Points accumulated more than two years previously are not taken into account ... "but all demerit points stay on a driver's record indefinitely, and police do have discretionary power to make any driver 'show cause' at any time". I didn't know that last bit ... did you? O D

WHILE on the subject of driving, "Old Baldy" has been pestered by number-one son for driving lessons since June 20 (son's 17th birthday). "OB," who kept putting him off by saying he was frightened, finally found some spare time around 11.30pm on Saturday. He woke son, stuck him in the front seat, and let son drive around and around and around the block at Kinka till about 12.30am. Satisfied that he had done the right thing by the boy, he pulled in at home and made a cup of tea. About 10 minutes later, another car drove up and son went out to see who it was. Turned out to be Emu Park's police force Sgt Bob Uebergang who wanted information ... he was looking for the vehicle that was "acting suspiciously" at Kinka Beach by driving around slowly. "OB" put out his wrists expecting handcuffs while number-one son pleaded innocence. Poor Bob, he had been phoned at home when he was asleep in bed, had to put on his uniform (unless he sleeps in it) then set off in pursuit of the demon driver. There must be an easier way to make a quid. By the way, "OB's" plans for further late-night driving lessons have been cancelled! o o 0 YEPPOON Golf Course is famous for its kangaroo "caddies" but did you know it's also well known for its feathered population? Apparently Brendan Kelly was among the Pacific Hotel's golfers playing a round on Sunday when he managed the unusual feat of two "birdies" on the one hole. Impossible you say ... well, let's put it this way, he wasn't playing cricket, but he scored a "duck". Seems he drove a long ball (not to be confused with a short ball or round ball) and, after the sweetest of "clicks," it soared into the air, rocketing away from the tee. Unfortunately, down below, minding its own business, there was a duck ... and the long ball struck the duck. The duck died. Brendan, feeling sorry for it (and for the loss of distance the duck caused to his shot) picked it up, stuck the struck down duck on his buggy and took it to a nice resting place (his refrigerator). Despite the loss of distance, he managed to get his next shot onto the green and wound up one under par with a birdie ... hence two "birdies" on the one hole. By the way, he said it was very tender ... especially where the ball hit!!! O 0 0
