Despite a valiant effort from New Zealander Phil Krammer, who was unused to yelling over 400m, Mr McCamley won both the champion-. of champion and male sections of the competition. Cooee Bay Lammermoor Progress Association president Brian Dorey said the Cooee contest had been a "success despite the cool weather and slightly smaller crowd than last year".

Mr Dorey said despite the smaller crowd profits were up with all the stall spaces being filled with entertainment and food vendors. Saturday night's Country and Western entertainment raised about $800 with more than 170 people attending the function. After last year's disappointing turn-out to


lead-up festivities, Mr Dorey hailed the Country and Western night as a success and said the function would be-repeated next year, possibly with a guest celebrity.

New pool fence

THE fence around the swimming pool at the Yeppoon State School will be replaced. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week Education Minister Lin Powell, had advised the fence would be rebuilt following representation from Mr Hinton. Mr Hinton said that on a recent inspection of the school, principal Coral Deeth had expressed her concern at the deteriorating condition, such that large holes could allow small children access to the pool without supervision. He said this was a potentially dangerous situation, and he had acted swiftly to have the situation rectified. The fence height has already been raised around the pool to ensure that no children, especially from the pre-school could climb over. This work was also carried out at Mr Hinton's request.




MANY PEOPLE ARE ELECTROCUTED EVERY YEAR ...don't let this happen to your family CORE Balanced Earth Leakage Protected Power Outlets guard against electrocution should the user come in contact with either the Active and Earth or Neutral and Earth of a power supply. This can happen in many ways. By touching live parts of an electrical appliance or installation and at the same time making contact with either damp ground or floors, metal frames, pipes or buildings. An Earth Leakage Detector Unit will cut off the power as the fault occurs, virtually eliminating the risk of electrocution. They also protect portable appliances and power tools against severe electrical damage should a short circuit develop in the unit between the electrical components and the outer frame. This protection can save the appliance from required expensive repairs. Fires resulting from electrical faults can also be averted if the faulty equipment is connected to a Power Outlet fitted with an Earth Leakage Detector. If fire damages cables connected to appliances fed from the unit, the power is automatically cut. Other unaffected appliances do not then become hazardous or further add fuel to the fire. Equipment on continuous use can be left unsupervised as the unit can detect any Earth Leakage fault that may occur and disconnect the supply if necessary.

Parents vote to accept a $400,000 building, financial 'hall' package

CI ABOVE: Former Coowonga State School teacher Chris Fleming (1983-84) went back to school to man the stall selling the school's special 90th birthday publication detailing the school's history. Chris Fleming wrote the booklet, 90 Years On.

Livingstone Shire decides to hold postal ballot for bicentenary poll Livingstone Shire residents will choose their next council by postal ballot. Councillors decided at the meeting on Tuesday to re-introduce postal voting for the March 19, 1988 election. The motion, moved by Cr Ellen Cogill and seconded by Cr Mario Cresta, met opposition. Cr Brian Dorey said councillors had fought hard to get polling booths, especially in divisions one and two, but it seemed some members had changed now changed their mind.

"We fought hard to get polling booths and it was done for all sorts of reasons. It now seems the same people who fought tooth and nail, are now opposed to the idea," he said. Cr Cresta said at one time he had fought "tooth and nail" but was now quite happy to have postal votes in the electorate. The debate centred around shire clerk Jim Brown's report. He said there could be benefits if the postal ballot option was used in Livingstone Shire. "It should be more cost-effective, in spite of additional postage and materials, and does result in a less arduous and time consuming effort on election day for everyone, including the public," he said. Division one councillor Duncan McDonald said people in rural divisions would gladly have postal voting. But feelow division one councillor Ann Giorgi said a lot of people had made the effort to vote at a polling booth and may forget a postal vote. Cr Ted Smith said the effectiveness of postal voting had been proven in division three with the "highest returns" coming from that system, and not polling booths. "There are far less hassles and it can be done at no difference in cost," he said.

YEPPOON State High School this week voted to accept a building plan and a financial package for a $400,000 multi-purpose building which had been put forward by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. The building will measure 36 metres by 22 metres and will be the largest public venue on the Capricorn Coast. Mr Hinton said it would be sited in the school grounds below the present manual arts building. It would be suitable for assembly hall purposes as well as a sports stadium. It would incorporate an Olympic-standard basketball court with competitive lighting. Construction is subject to approval by State Cabinet of an extra $40,000 over and above the normal $160,000 subsidy ceiling. Mr Hinton said he had discussed this with Deputy Treasurer Bill Gunn who was prepared to put a case to State Cabinet on Mr Hinton's behalf. The school's parents and citizens' association voted to supply $23,000 in cash and enter into loan arrangements of $60,000, with a government guarantee, with the bulk of repayment funds being met by leasing the hall to Yeppoon Amateur Basketball Association. This group would use" the hall from Monday to Thursday nights, plus Sunday. Friday and Saturday nights would be available for additional public hiring.

Mr Hinto said the building would cater to school needs for the foreseeable future because of its sprung wooden flooring, fourmetre-deep stage, store rooms, kitchen and toilets. It would be self-funding over a 10-year loan programme and be an invaluable asset to the community. Andrews Construction Pty Ltd of Yeppoon will be project managers for the building and have arranged competitive subcontractors so that the project can proceed on available funds. Mr Hinton praised company principal John Andrews who had been deeply involved in the planning of the concept. "The community is going to gain an invaluable asset which will benefit the high school enormously," Mr Hinton said. "It will be a major public utility, provide an excellent basketball and other indoor sports facility and, in the longer term, be a major source of revenue for the parents and citizens' association." The association has formed a committee, headed by association president Jack Cowie, and principal John Gregg, to finetune the building's design and to enter into negotiations with the basketball association regarding hours of play. "Final plans will then be put to the State Works Department," Mr Hinton said.

EIGHT NEW PENSIONER UNITS THERE will be eight new pensioner units constructed at Yeppoon to provide low rental accommodation to senior citizens in need. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton, this week announced construction of the units on Queensland Housing Commission land at 22 William Street Yeppoon. The work was approved following representations to Works and Housing Minister Ivan Gibbs, following requests for such accommodation from several constituents. "The site already has pensioner units, and was chosed for additional units because it is close to the commercial area of the town and hence within easy walking distance," Mr Hinton said. "The Queensland Housing Commission, which will construct the units, also has land

at Hutton St, and in Rockhampton Road, which we hope to utilise at a later date." Each unit will cost about $35,000 and will be fully self contained. The construction will be completed this financial year with tenders being called in about two months after final plans and specifications are completed. Mr Hinton said he was concerned at the living standards of many senior citizens, especially those paying higher rentals. The provision of low-cost rental of such excellent accommodation as the new units would be an asset to the area and he had therefore lobbied the Minister "with some considerable vigour". "Following completion of these units I will be immediately seeking the construction of further blocks of units to meet this urgent need," he said.

Another chapter of history closes THE death in Yeppoon Hospital of William Preston Athos Vaughan on Saturday, July 18, aged 82 years, 11 months, brough to a close another chapter of Yeppoon's history. Mr Vaughan, or Bill, as he preferred to be called, was born on August 8, 1904. He was the eldest of eight children born to Harold and Ellen Vaughan. As was customary for country children in thos days, Mr Vaughan was taught his first lessons at home by an aunt. He began his formal schooling, aged nine years, at Yeppoon in 1913. In 1917 his parents decided to send him to Rockhampton to finish his education. To enable this move, Bill stayed with his aunt, Miss Mable Vaughan, at Sleipner Junction where she was the school teacher. After a walk of about one mile Bill caught the train daily to Rockhampton. He successfully passed his scholarship examination in May, 1918. In July, 1918, Bill started his secondary education at the Rockhampton Boys Grammar School. His subjects were Maths, English, Geometry, Chemistry, Physics and Latin. In 1922 having successfully passed his Junior examination in 1921, Bill was accepted by Mr E

N Symons as an apprentice Chemist. A bond of $2000 (£1000) was required by Mr Symons for the three year training period of an apprentice. Part of the duties of an apprentice in those days was to deliver prescriptions to private hospitals by bicycle. After the three year period was completed a further year was spent at Pharmacy College in Brisbane and Bill graduated with Registration No. 843 in 1925. A position as locum at the General Hospital in Rockhampton was offered. For the next five years Bill was constantly employed in areas from Mackay to Lismore. During this time Bill never applied for a job as word of mouth recommendation kept him in employment. A recurring eruption of boils caused Bill to leave the city and return to country living to try to effect a cure. A new chapter in his life began in 1930 when Bill became a land owner and started to grow tomatoes and later, bananas. Land was hand cleared and much hard work was involved to produce these crops. The boils eventually healed and Bill put off returning to pharmacy work "for a while". This phrase became a family joke as the "while" spanned decades. In 1940 Bill married Miss Jean Helen Fletcher and set up house on beautiful Mt Barmoya and they started their family of five sons. During the late 1940s and 50s Bill became one of the first bulldozing contractors in the district. Contracts took him as far afield as the Dawson Valley. Pineapple farming took over from bulldozing as the boys grew to manhood. A life-long habit of very early rising enable Bill to keep abreast with his various studies. The most important of these being the Scriptures and pharmacology. Mr Vaughan was always a gentleman and his gracious charm and courtesy endeared him to • all he met. In later years much of his time was spent with his indulged cattle and by paying visits to neighbours. He usually gave gifts of pineapples and enjoyed many cuppas in return. The Vaughan family was among the first settlers of the Yeppoon district and, as a child, Bill was told many stories of the early days of Yeppoon by his grandparents. These tales of the family's arrival in Australia, in 1853, he loved to recount to his children and grandchildren, leaving them with a vivid knowledge of those distant times. Mr Vaughan's intellect remained crystal sharp and he attended to all the farm bookwork as well as accepting locum pharmacy work for chemist friends which he enjoyed immensely. Mr Vaughan was a devout Christian. His faith was simple, practical and sincere. He was not bound by denominational ties and enjoyed sharing his faith with many of all denominations. His trust being that Jesus died for his sins. Mr Vaughan is survived by his wife, Jean, and five sons and 16 grandchildren.

work. District Telecom manager Marshall Allan said the new charges included an initial fee for the visit by the technician and a charge based on the time taken to complete the job. "A typical case is the installation of a second extension in the home," Mr Allan said. "Previously we would have charged a set fee in excess of $100 for this service which in some cases would only take half an hour to complete. Mow we will charge $38 for the technician's visit and $12 for every 15 minutes or part thereof. "In some cases the cost of the work could now be as little as $50. "In simple terms, if the job's easy there will be a smaller charge; if it's a difficult job and takes a long time then that will cost more." Customers will be given a quote on the job before the technician starts work. Mr Allan said the system was a fairer method of charging because customers with easy installations would no longer be subsidising others. The new charges do not apply to the installation of the first telephone or the initial installation of small business systems

ALP started the `gerrymander' SO, Mr Timbs doesn't like our Queensland electoral system. Obviously he is forgetting or doesn't know that it was originated by his beloved ALP and that with a similar system the ALP holds government in Western Australia. Now that the present state government has made the system work properly and provide decent representation for the remote far northern and western areas, Mr Timbs and the ALP squeal "gerrymander". It must be asked exactly why does the ALP (and the Liberals) want to establish a system that would abolish a number of northern and western electorates and re-create them in the already well represented south-east corner of the state. That is not "one-vote-one-value" for the north and western people — most discriminatory and unfair. For the special enlightenment of the ALP and the Liberals, there are people living in the north and west, not just trees, cattle and horses. These people work extremely hard and provide the materials for food, clothing and a large percentage of our valuable exports. And they deserve a fair go! As for the ridiculous myth of the state government holding office on 39 per cent of the vote, no member holds his or her seat without over 50 per cent of the vote, either by a majority of the primary vote or the primary vote and preferences ... real democracy at work. Don't complain Mr Timbs, the ALP holds seats on preferences too! To attain government a Party needs its candidates to get over 50 per cent of the vote in over 50 per cent of the seats. Currently the state government holds office with 49 of the 89 seats and around 54 to 55 per cent of the vote, made up of primary and preference votes properly added together ... true democracy. — Garth Brownsdon, Farnborough Road, Yeppoon.

We need wisdom of former leaders IN the establishment of the Australian

Commonwealth, before the turn of the century, the Founding Fathers, to overcome the fears of the outer States that they would be dominated by the rich, powerful States of Victoria and New South Wales, ignored the principle of one vote - one value and introduced into the Australian constitution the principle of 'adequate representation'. They did this, in the House of Representatives, by providing that no State, no matter how small, would have less than five seats in the House; and in the Senate by providing that all States would have equal representation. The introduction of one vote - one value to Queensland will result in a concentration of political power in S-E Queensland (80 per cent of politicians within a two-hour drive of Brisbane), a carbon copy of the situation the States foresaw and avoided 90 years ago. One vote - one value does not guarantee democracy. For this we need, first and foremost, adequate representation. We need also, some of the political wisdom of those leaders of so many years ago.

New pre-school at Farnborough proves need with numbers on roll FARNBOROUGH State Primary School has opened a new pre-school facility which will alleviate a shortage of accommodation on the Capricorn Coast. The pre-school has about 22 enrolled with two more infants joining the school this week. Teacher-In-charge is Dani Guli and principal Mick Quinn said the pre-school was a definite need for the area and also serviced a number of Capricorn Coast children. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said he had attained the school after representation to education minister Lin Powell. He had told Mr Powell that up to 60 children could be missing out on pre-school education because of lack of facilities. Mr Powell had promised construction of a new pre-school at Taranganba and work is expected to start late this financial year. The Farnborough pre-school would assist as a temporary accommodation until the new preschool opened. However Mr Hinton said he would then press for its continuance to accommodate children from Farnborough and Byfield. Mr Hinton said that pre-school education was an important part of prep-atifig sicking children for primary school, developing their

early skills and also for social interaction with other children. Mr Hinton said the school would be' upgraded including replacement of rusted • sheeting on the toilet block, repairs to verandahs and notice board, cleaning down , and repainting rusted steelwork and replacing;, wall sheeting on one building. •• .• Mr Hinton said the renovations followed; representations to Works -ancr. Housing7. minister Ivan Gibbs and recent repainting of some of the buildings. Mr Quinn said the improvements had been needed and were part of a plan to give the school a new look. The parents and citizens association had ordered new playground equipment and had also planned a tree planting session -later 4his month. Mr Quinn said every student Wciuld-plaht" tree and be entrusted to its care. The school is also presently involved in atrial scheme in the library. Mr Quinn said by putting library records on to computer the job would become easier to do. It is only a trial and the success of *trial would. be assessed as soon as all the inforniatibn has. been programmed into the computer.

TWO Coast hairdressers won awards at the Hair Fashion Council's competition on Sunday. Bronwyn Pedwell and Heidi Gratton of Salon 24, were the only two hairdressers from four competing Coast salons that were placed in any of the hair competitions. Central Queensland Hair Council spokesman Ann Devlin said entries in the competition had "surpassed expectations with 128 nominated in the 10 different sections". Early indications had shown about 40 had nominated for the competition but because entries were taken until Sunday, 128 first, second, third year and upwards hairdressers had taken advantage' of the first Central Queensland championships. Entrants came from Dysart, Capella, Biloela, Blackwater, Mackay, Ayr, Gladstone, Rockhampton and the Capricorn Coast. Ann Devlin said the response had been fantastic and showed a competition of Sunday's kind was needed in the Central Queensland area. She said nominations were not only "good" but the 1200-strong audience was also "marvellous". Judge for the day was Tasman Tacey who has had the experience of being World chairman of judging at the 1986 World Hair championships. Mr Tacey said the standard of hairdressing had been excellent and more girls should

compete in Brisbane competitions. A member of the 1986 junior team which was fifth in the world championships, Sue Lacey of Mackay, entered all the sections and won one title. Salon 24's Bronwyn Pedwell competed against 23 other entrants in the Blowdry section to take out the title. Heidi Gratton was only apprenticed two months ago and competed with other first and second year apprentices for the male haircut title. Although not successful with the title, Heidi did come third. Ann said the hairdressers gained valuable experience from the competition. Many had put in hours of practice in preparation for the competition. As a hairdresser, she said it was also valuable because, from an employer's position, more consideration would be given to someone who "game, stimulated and confident". "It enhances employment prospects," Ann said. Champion hairdresser was Lyndell Williams from Rockhampton's Annette's Salon. Annette's Salon also won the perpetual trophy for the Salon amassing the most points. After the championship's success the Hair -Fashion Council now plans to make the competition an annual event which will offer 16 sections instead of only 10. A meeting will be held on August 30 to bid for the next competition date.

CTDO chairman details sweeping changes in organisation structure THE Capricorn Tourism and Development Organisation has approved sweeping changes to its organisational structure. CTDO chairman John Williams said the board of directors, at its latest meeting, had unanimously approved major changes to the rules of the organisation, which would see the CTDO become fully subscriber-oriented and representative- of the entire Capricorn region. Mr Williams said an extraordinary general meeting of the CTDO would be held on September 2 to present the amendment to the many subscribers, for adoption, prior to the annual general meeting at the end of September. "We believe the changes will be highly acceptable to our members throughout the region, particularly those who have in the past made suggestions that the organisation was not truly regional in structure," Mr Williams said. The most major change will be in the procedure for electing the board of directors, which will now be carried out at the AGM. Mr Williams said there would no longer be elections for members to the Tourism and Development Committee ... only for the management committee. "When the board is elected, on the night, they will retire from the meeting to choose, from their number, a chairman, two deputies and a treasurer, who will then be introduced to the general membership," Mr Williams said. "The elected board will then carry out the appointment of five sub-committees, covering development, finance, marketing and promotion, operations and membership, providing people with expertise in these areas to serve on the sub-committees." Mr Williams said he was particularly pleased that the CTDO's membership was increasing substantially in all areas of the region. "We are seeing ever-increasing numbers of businesses and people on the Capricorn Coast, in the Central Highlands and the Rockhampton area, joining the organisation to be a part of our promotional work," he said.

"The allocation of a further $70,000 from the Queensland Tourist and Travel Corporation, this year, and the increased number of subscriptions will ensure that areas from the Capricorn Coast to the Gemfields and beyond will gain even greater exposure and recognition in the marketplace in the months to come." The CTDO has begun the planning of large billboards, promoting all aspects of the Capricorn. region; new regional brochures are being designed and a set of five posters, depicting the Coast, the Gemfields, the Capricorn valleys, the Central Highlands and Rockhampton are now in production. "Anyone in the Capricorn region who thinks their area is being ignored by the CTDO will have to think again," Mt Williams said. "The CTDO in the past 12 months has gained wide recognition for all areas of the region, and in the next 12 months it will push the Capricorn region to even greater heights of development and acceptability in Queensland tourism."

OK for water LIVINGSTONE Shire Council this week approved an application to supply water to participants in Fieldfest '87. Fieldfest '87 is conducted by the Caves and Mt Archer Lions ClUbs, and Etna Creek prison officers. Eighty applicants have already booked sites during the farming and agricultural exposition to be held at Etna Creek Prison from Wednesday, October 7 to Friday, October 9. Fieldfest '87 committee secretary Cec Woodland told council by letter money raised from the show went toward Lions charieties and prison recreation equipment. Mr Woodland wrote to council for approval to use water from the adjacent pipeline on the site being used at the Etna Creek Prison Farm. Council agreed to make the water available but as the site seems a permanent annual event, it voted to charge stall owners for any water they use.

THE overcast, showery conditions last Sunday kept many sailors at home but those who sailed the third heat of the winter series enjoyed the 12-15 knot south easterly. The race was won by Dennis Little sailing the "G" Cat, "HYPO", taking both line honours and handicap results. The three sharpies were engaged in their own competition. "Longshot" won the start and held the lead untol a tangled mainsheet caused a capsize on the first lack. "Blood, Sweat and Tears" looked to have the race won before a swim at the gybe mark allowed the juniors sailing "Young Arnold" through to victory, followed by "Longshot" and "Blood, Sweat and Tears". The division one competition was convincingly won by Damien Stover sailing "Crusader" to beat home "Free Spirit" and "Without Envy". Overall handicap results were Hypo (Dennis Little) Crusader (Damien Stover), Without Envy (Brian Spowart). There will be training this Saturday afternoon (today) but no racing Sunday.

WHILE on the subject of words, I read an article in the Australian: 'Cry this beloved country for its loss of learning', in The Pitch with Bryce Courtenay. Courtenay said in one part where he had read a remark from a progressive that "the only necessity for a child was sufficient learning so that he or she may be understood". Another: "education had nothing to do with preparing a child for the real world or for the workforce". If you have already read James Hill (of course have) then you will understand the problem we have here at the Mirror. Quite often we have 'typos' (errors from my fingers) and sometimes we have actual spelling errors. They occur when John or myself are too tired to re-read and correct. I am not denigrating (speaking ill) of Cathy or Sandra, but their command of the English language leaves much to be desired. They have improved remarkably since starting to work (Cathy was at the Commonwealth Bank and then at some papers in Brisbane and Sandra, at the Mirror), which shows that with continual nagging we have almost stopped youse which I consider a remarkable achievement. I don't know whether the problem is in the way things are taught now or just plain sloppiness, but children straight out of school can't spell. They also write sentences that don't make sense. They do not understand tenses or possessive case. All the old rhymes I learnt in primary school are written on a white-board at home for my children (and that isn't enough as both sons' teachers will agree) ... the point is, I still remember them. It was called rote, btft it seemed to work. To continue with Bryce Courtenay's article. "Language, and in particular the English tongue, contains a lifetime of personal exploration and pleasure for anyone who knows how to use it. "The inability to communicate, to understand, to reason and to articulate is to turn a person into an intellectual convict who serves the remainder of life in a prison known as poverty of the spirit. "To allow any Australian to leave a school system wearing the shackles of semi-literacy is -a crime against the beloved country. "But the crime is far greater when the system is deliberately changed so that a child will need to overcome the education system he has been forced to undergo in order to be literate, in order to use language for beauty, for culture and for businesS. "If we are deliberately reducing the ability of our children to use language well and to enjoy it for the beauty contained within it, if we are robbing them of the most exquisite pleasure known to man, the stirring of words which charge the heart and stimulate the mind, to what purpose are we doing this."

ONE hundred and eighteen pensioners were present at Tuesday's monthly Yeppoon Pensioners' League social held in Yeppoon Town Hall. Newly-appointed comperes Marje Cornell and Phyl Rumpf were together for the first time and they produced a "Variety" afternoon. Following Bill and Rene Jones' tuneful

❑ ABOVE: Michelle Moore and Jason Woolford were ready to trip the light fantastic at Yeppoon High School's senior formal on Saturday night at Yeppoon Town Hall. presocial medley, the programme opened with a session of community singing and was followed by dancing, singing and instrumental items. A highlight of the afternoon was the vocal duet presented by Beryl Dawson and Marje Cornell. Voices blending perfectly, they sand Brahms Lullaby and Whispering Hope. Concert-goers will want to hear more from this couple. Beryl was also in fine voice in her rendering of You Needed Me and The Way We Were. Among the visitors was Norm Hill on holidays in Yeppoon. Norm was accompanist for Alf Marcombe and Bill Shuttlewood in their contributions. Jack Ingram, on his first appearance at a pensioners' social this year, brought a quartette of young dancers ... Kim Christi, Sarah and Katie Towle and Josie Plahn, and they charmed the audience with their grace in jazz and tap dancing. Lorna McIntyre, appropriately dressed, sang Yankie Doodle Dandy. Norm Brisbin (piano-accordionist), Viv Bowen, Less Wessels (saxophonists), Hugh Wellesley and George Cooper (mouth organists) were deservedly applauded for their offerings ... as were Rene Jones and Marje Cornell for their piano duets. • Joe McIntyre once again showed his prowess as an entertainer with his recital of a humourous Australian poem. Ruby Harris, Phyl Rumpf, Sarah Hall, Gary Warren (Yeppoon), Jack Flanagan (Emu Park), rendered solos and Key and Pauline West of Yeppoon were a pleasing duet, while The Entertainers sang a tuneful medley. Accompanists were Rene Jones, Lynda Leech and Marje Cornell. The afternoon finished" with the women's section of The Entertainers presenting a Chinese melody (and dressed accordingly). During the afternoon, giveaways of decorated glasses, given by Alec Ogilvie, were drawn as lucky doors and won by Thelma Leigh, Eve Cook, Beth Randall, Thelma Shuttlewood, Ada Herd, Tom Devantier, Mick Close, Bill Coxon, Jim Limpus (Yeppoon), Jack Flanagan of Emu Park and Thelma Wallis of Mt Perry. Fruit trays were given by Dick and Betty Tyrer for the raffle and these were won by Norm Brisbin and Errol Ward of Yeppoon. A third tray was won by Linda Leech.

CAPCOAST RUGBY SIDE TAKES TUMBLE BUT CAN STILL WIN 0 By Gerard Read CAPCOAST Rugby took a tumble on Sunday when they went down to Biloela in the qualifying final at Rugby Park. With a reshuffled side, Capcoast could not muster the form that took them to 21-12 victory over the same team a week earlier, and subsequently went down 13-7 in dreary conditions. Capcoast started the match well with a Mark Boyd penalty, which was followed up by a try to Marc Aroa, after good work from Dave Webb and Mark Boyd. This made the score 7-0. The score could have been 10-0, had the referre awarded an Aroa field goal which clearly sailed between the sticks.

Basketballers defeat US team A SPECIAL basketball game between a Yeppoon team and a turning American team, "Sport for Understanding," met for a clash which left the outcome in doubt until the last five seconds. The USA team hit town on Sunday night and contacted YABA president Don Willoughby who then called on various players. These girls had no chance to train together with such short notice. They were lucky to- have Prop Abram coach the girls who played them hard and fast. The half time score 26 to 21 to SFU showed the coast girls were hanging in with every bounce of the ball. The second half had everyone on their feet as the Yeppoon team pulled up to a draw of 38 all. It was them basket for basket but with only 15 seconds to go the SFU team were 2 up. Yeppoon was unable to score before the final bell making the final score 48-46 to the American girls. The association would like to thank the girls for their game; coach Prop Abram and referees Carrot Campbell and Alan Thomas. Gayle Lorraway top scored for Yeppoon with 19 and Ann Adkins for the USA with 18. Thanks also go to. the two teams Billabongs and Cougars who had their game postponed to Wednesday. Wildcats were without John Christensen and went down to Tanby Roses 41-28. Tigas men's team. are still looking.- for players but held up well to go down to scoobs by only 8 points 40-32. Players' registrations are to be paid before the next game. Results, August 5; Scoobettes def Pink Galahs 22-15; Cobras def Wildcats 50-39; Lamour won on forfeit to Magpies.

However it was not to be, and Biloela replied with a try and penalty to make it 7-all at half-time. Shortly after half-time Capcoast lost fiveeighth Aroa which led to another shuffle in the back-line and disrupted the fowarded eight. The match came down to a slogging affair with both sides committing many errors and taking wrong options. Capcoast never really got on top, and were starting to go backwards. After several earlier misses Warren Wilson slotted a penalty goal to give Biloela the edge 10-7. Then, with about 10 minutes left, a Wilson field goal was successful taking the score to 13-7. a handy 6 point Lushion.

Senior Swans close season with a flurry against Biloela on weekend YEPPOON Swans finished their A grade season with a flurry when they blasted Biloela in an entertaining weekend game. At times one would have been forgiven for thinking that the Swans were still in the ptemiership hunt as they continually produced champagne football. In fact they lowly spot on the ladder certainly doesn't do them justice. Mark Taylor revelled in his new role as centreman. He had so many kicks and covered so much ground that he really rested his musty legs out. Ben Kelly grabbed the opportunity to ruck all day with both hands and was awesome. He not only won the Mick contests but his strength around the ground had the crowd agape as he just walked through tackles two and three at a time. Peter Thompson gave his confidence a boost with a fine running game on the wing and now must be chaffing at the bit in readiness for this week. Brian Cruickshank was at his tearaway best leaving his opposition eating his dust so many times that Biloela asked for him to be swabbed after the game. Bryan Munn found the forward line to his liking slotting through five goals. The professor was so hot that he once leapt so high flying for a mark that air sick tablets had to be rushed out. Unfortunatly they were given to Rob Lockman who said they were the last thing he needed. Mick Keogh had the role of link man through the centre and more's the pity that Mick wasn't here at the start of the season. Russell Frew was a surprise packet kicking two fine goals then taking the role as defender across the half back line. He was replaced in the last quarter to give someone else a run and drank two quick cans on the bench before asking to go back on. Rob Gardner adapted well to the centre half back role and became more of an attacking player then a defender. Gary Fraser was switched to centre half forward in the second half to add a little extra bite and this had immediate results as the Swans kicked a quick six. "Frizz" will be

taking juggling classes at training and all are welcome. Best Players: Taylor, Kelly, Cruickshank, Munn, Street, Keogh, Dell. Goalkickers: Munn 5; Bertalli, Street, Frew 2; Kelly, Munro, Fraser, Lockman, Hawke, Muller and Keogh. Final Scores: 18-14-122 to 10-11-71. The grooming award goes this week to consistent grooming performer Greg Bain, for his portrayal of a person with amnesia who couldn't speak. This week, the reserves are pitted against Parkhurst in the first semi-final with the game being played at Gladstone. Best of luck fellas and keep yourselves on target for 3 in a row.

Rockets beat Dynamics in fixtures ROCKETS defeated Dynamics 6-5 at the Yeppoon Table Tennis Association's fixtures on Thursday, August 6. Greg Simpson filled in for Dynamics' number-one player and showed no mercy in defeating David Stewart in two games. Mick Malick, filling in as Dynamics' second player, had a close game against Dave Ryan, only to go down 19-21 in the third. Rockets' number-three Neil Malick played well and downed his opposition, Gordon Wall, with straight wins. Neil also played his best against Mick, but it was Mick's night to take the honours. In the first set of doubles, David and Dave won in two games against Greg and Mick; the second game resulting in a 24-22 win. In the second set of doubles, Dynamics got their revenge and, after three games, Greg and Gordon defeated David and Neil. Dolphins ran away to victory over Marvels with a score of 8 rubbers to 3. Joe Kruger and Monica Christensen

Capcoast then drove into Biloela's corner for the final 5 minutes but failed to penetrate leaving the full time score 13-7 to Biloela. This now puts Capcoast in the minor, semifinal against Brothers. The finals format is as follows: Minor semi-final: Capcoast v Brothers; August 15. Major semi-final: Pioneers v Biloela; August 16. Prelimary final: Winner (Minor) v doser (Major); August 22.

Scott Malick filled as Marvels' second player but failed to score any wins on the night. Peter Murphy performed well and put up a good fight against Dynamics' number-three, Peter Malick. However Peter Malick managed to get the last vital points in the third game. The Dynamics' number-three kept up his winning streak by narrowly defeating Scott 24-22 in the last of three games. Both sets of doubles went to three games each, with the Dolphins' combinations claiming victory each time.

BY-LINE INCORRECT LAST week's Rugby Union article was written by Gerard Read and not by Mick Bongers as by-lined.

Mick Bongers wrote for Gerard las month when he was on holidays.

YEPPOON Eagles Soccer matches on the weekend were played at Apex Park under cloudy skies with threatening rain which fortunately held off until all matches were completed. Under 7s: Eagles v St Anthony's Gold; St AnthOny's Gold 3 def Eagles 1. This was a good game with both teams fairly evenly matched. The Eagles were a little hesitant in attack at times and with a little more aggression might have done better. David Cue scored for Yeppoon. Under 8s: Eagles v St Anthony's White; Eagles 1 def St Anthony's White 0. This was another even game although Yeppoon tended to crowd at times. Andrew Breingan was the goal scorer for the Eagles. Under 9s: Eagles v Parkana Dolphins; Parkana Dolphins did not field a team and therefore forfeited the match. Under 12s: Eagles v Parkana; Parkana 5 def Eagles 0. Although the scores were 5 to nil against the Eagles this was a fairly evenly matched game. The Eagles played well together with Matthew Duckwitz in the forwards and Scott Barlow in the backs both playing well. A new player, Richard Evans, played well and shows promise. This Saturday (today) the under 7s have a bye. The bus leaves at 9.45am and returns about 1.15pm.

Junior Swans return from Rockhampton with two . premierships THE Yeppoon Junior Swans won two out of three grand finals on Sunday winning the under 15 and under 17 pennants back-toback for the past two years. The under 13s had an uphill battle and just to make it into the grand final was a tremendous effort in itself. The boys have battled all year and were short on numbers but the dedication they have shown, especially on Sunday, proves they have what it takes. The under 13s started slowly and didn't score in the first term, allowing Parkhurst to. score 4-1. In the second quarter it was a little more even with the Swans 1-1 to Parkhurst's 2-3. In the third quarter, the Swans added

two goals while the opposition added 2-3. In the final quarter, the Swans added 0-3 to Parkhurst's 5-1, making the final score 13-886 to the Swans' 3-4-22. Best players for Yeppoon were Matthew Williams, Grant Thorpe, Steven Phillips, Jayson Aston, Shaun Moran, Hayden Steele and Stephen Horstman. The under 15 grand final was played against Brothers and the Swans proved too strong in every quarter. The Swans started against the wind and kicked 3-3 to Brothers 2-0 in the first quarter. That started a pattern to which Brothers had

no answer. With the wind, the Swans had it all their own way and put on 6-5 to Brothers 0-1. In the third quarter, the Swans piled on 5-0 to Brothers 2-1. At the last change the Swans had an easy road home and put on 3-3 to Brothers 0-1, making the final scores Yeppoon 17-11-113 to Brothers 4-3:27. The under 15 squad was only 13 goals short of kicking 300 goals for the season and only had a combined total of 31 goals kicked against them. This gave the team a staggering 750 per cent for the year, the highest ever recorded in Central Queensland. Club president Ross Mclndoe has congratulated under 15s' coach Jim Bailey who has now achieved bAck-to-back in the under 15 premierships and three premierships over a six-year period. — Best players for the Swans were Danny Bromley, Jason Jamieson, Trent Thompson, Dale Wetzler (his best for the year), Ronald Mackie and Troy Tomkins. The under 17 match was the true highlight of the day ... the tension and standard of football was as good as any senior competition for the year. The difference between the teams was never more than 5 points and the Swans wound up defeating Parkhurst by 1 point. Yeppoon put the first points on the board in the first quarter with two goals but Parkhurst fought back and put on 2-3. In the second term, Yeppoon had the use of the breeze, which had eased, and scored 2-2 to Parkhurst's 1-3. It was still anybody's game at the half-way mark and in the third quarter Yeppoon kicked 2-5 to 2-2. At three-quarter time the rain started and with the ball getting slippery and conditions deteriorating, the game became a little congested and slower. Yeppoon had a lead of one point when the final hooter sounded with a scoreboard showing Yeppoon 6-11-47 to Parkhurst's 610-46. With a crowd of more than 500 it was a fitting way to finish off the junior season. A barbecue back at Yeppoon Showground closed off the day. The presentation night on Wednesday put the final touches. Each under 11 player was presented with an identical trophy and all players in the grand final got a medallion. Under 13 awards. Best and Fairest Stephen Horstman; runner up Grant Thorpe; Most Consistent Doug Edwards; Most Improved Trevor Mulholland; Best First Year Jayson Aston. Under 15s: Best and Fairest Jason Jamieson and Trent Thompson who each . had identical votes; Most Consistent Troy Tompkins; Most Improved Dale Wetzler; Best First Year Rod Chapman. Under 17s: Best and Fairest Grant Boyd and Aaron Thompson who each received identical votes; Most Consistent Tim Mynott; Most Improved Stephen Bird; Best First Year Darren Franke. A special presentation was made to Aaron Thompson being the only one this year who started with the club and now goes into the senior ranks. The Jim Bailey Club Member Award went to Irene Mclndoe. It is usually awarded to a player who puts in a tremendous effort ... Jim Bailey decided Irene deserved the trophy this year.

FISHING from the Causeway Bridge is prohibited ... everyone knows that, but everyone also knows it's a good fishing spot. So, the motoring public knows (the locals, anyway) that there's a fair chance someone's going to flick a line or step onto the roadway and, as a result, most slow down. "Old Baldy" is one of these kind, careful motorists ... and on Saturday night he was lucky. Not because someone stepped in front of him, no, but because some idiot, some nong, had strung fishing line between the posts at the Emu Park end of the bridge. It was about 10.50pm and "OB" spotted something in his headlights and hit the brakes. His van skidded sideways to the left and wound up very close to the bridge fence. Now, if there had been a fisherman (or child) there, they would have wound up as squashed bait. Or, look at it another way, if a motorcyclist had beaten "OB" to the fishing line, the rider just might have been killed ... possibly beheaded, possibly blinded, definitely severely cut. Stringing fishing line across the bridge is not funny. By the way, the remains of the snapped line were still tied to the posts on Wednesday. Maybe the idiot who put it there might like to do a public service and remove it ... before some other idiot decides to try it! O

VISITOR, apparently from Victoria, berated a Yeppoon businesswoman over "false advertising" ... it had nothing to do with any products the woman offered for sale, it concerned Emu Park. It seems the visitor went to Emu Park expecting to spend a day with emus ... in the park. When the visitor arrived, lo and behold, there's no emus. Now, I don't know whether this visitor drove thousands of kilometres just to see The Emu Park or, after arriving in the region, decided this was something that had to be seen, but whatever, the Visitor was let down. Let's hope the visitor doesn't head to Europe next year to see Frankfurt!!! o oo IT rained on Wednesday ... how do I know? It's easy; the Mirror rain gauge recorded heaps and heaps. Unfortunately, the rain gauge isn't accurate enough to provide official data ... it's a wheelie bin with its lid left hanging down! o o o YEPPOON Angliss manager Key Hancock had a customer recently who spent a few moments recalling the good old days. Seems the customer was involved in a Yeppoon general store or grocery business back in the 1950s ... them were the days when men were men and newspapers were recycled on a nail on the back of the dunny door. Anyway, this customer told Key a bloke came in one Friday and bought a roll of toilet paper, a rare sale in those days. Monday morning, bright and early, the bloke's back with the toilet roll and asked could he have his money back. The reason? "The visitors didn't come on the weekend!" o o ❑ NOW, if younger readers doubt that story, cop this ... many years ago when "Old Baldy" started in journalism his father (a butcher, by the way) was bitterly disappointed. As he explained to "OB" (then "Young Baldy"): "I can't understand why anyone goes into a business where the end product winds up hanging on a nail on the back of a dunny door!!!" ❑ o o MORE on the above ... "OB's" father didn't live long enough to see space-age technology update newspapers to the stage where they no longer serve that purpose ... no, the industry created special ink that comes off on your hands before it has a chance to come off anywhere else!!! o o ❑ LAST week, in two separate stories, we j had school principals spelt as principles. Now, the Mirror's principals' principles will not allow school principals to be incorrectly written as principles hence this item to correct the mistakes. We hope the principals accept this apology ... and consider calling themselves headmasters!! O
