Yeppoon deserves two additional police ALP

Bowen wants rainfall details to help with engineering

STATE Opposition Police Spokesman Tom Burns wants more police attached to Yeppoon Police Station. Mr Burns, who was speaking after a tour of the station last Friday and a meeting with officer-in-charge Sgt lc Ken Tanzer, said Yeppoon deserved at least two more police. "Yeppoon has six officers plus two trainee officers and there should be at least another two officers to man the station," he said. On average, there were 525 people for each police officer in Queensland but the figure was much higher in country towns. Mr Burns said he hoped Yeppoon would soon have a 24-hour-a-day, seven-daysaweek police station looking after the town and surrounding areas. But there would be a problem in achieving this because of a State-wide police shortage. "The State Government needs to spend more money on police so more officers can be employed," Mr Burns said. "That way, more police can be stationed at smaller stations such as Yeppoon." Mr Burns said the government's budget for police was $246 million and there had been calls to increase this by 10 per cent to $272 million. H&said the .opposition Was calling for this increase to be provided in the coming State Budget. When asked how he, if in government, would provide the extra funds when it was the Federal Government that was providing less fbr the,States, Mr Burns,, said .he 'would distriantle the, State!, Government's public relations arm. He said the goVernment was wasting millions of dollars on advertising goyernment Ministers. "That advertising could be done away with to provide more money for the police," he said. • , He does not expect thegoVeinment to find an extra 10 per cent in 'the coming, budget ... "I think the figure will be more like $250 million," he said. The reason more money was needed was because of the many tourist areas in Queensland, sueh:a4 Yeppoon. ' 3/4 + :"Places like Yepption have e'rnoVinj man' problem," he said. "Itinerants come in. Sometimes they're on the run from police, other times they're on the dole and they need quick money. "The result is increased crime." He said he had toured most police stations in Queensland and from this, had seen what were the State's needs. Most smaller • stations needed more officers but, like Yeppoon, they were "good stations and remarkably well run." The answer for smaller stations was not more civilian personnel. Civilians could help out at bigger police stations but, in smaller stations, police themselves were needed to be seen to be out and about. Policemen walking the beat were a good „idea and he was pleased to see it was

SHIRE Chairman Cr John Bowen has appealed to residents to give council a copy of any rainfall records they have to "enhance stormwater drainage designs". The council wants as many records as possible from all parts of the shire so that it can use the information to make stromwater drainage designs, and roadmaking, more efficient. Cr Bowen said there had already been a positive response from the Bureau of Meteorology and a few residents who have maintained rainfall readings over a considerable period. What council is now seeking is further help from any residents who may have complete, or partial records, of their particular area. Cr Bowen said the official records contain a lot of the information council needs but records kept by people relating directly to their own home of farm would complement that detail. The council's Engineering Department will be able to compare the different rainfall records and see if there are any anomalies that may call for a modification in stormwater design. , These records could also help the department in building and maintaining shire roads. "Think what a difference it would make if the rainfall records showed that for the past umpteen years, it had always rained in .a certain month," Cr Bowen said. "If we had that information, we could rearrange the works schedule and avoid doing up a road just 'to have it torn up a few weeks later.`" Cr Bowen said residents' assistance would be greatly. appreciated. He said it would be handy if the original records could be provided. Anyone able to help can contact the Engineering Department at the Shire Administration Centre in Anzac Parade, Yeppoon. For further information phone 393388.

Usually, only the bigger stations had the manpower to spare police for this role. The only other smaller station he had visited which had police on the beat was Surfers Paradise. Mr Burns gave "full marks" to Yeppoon

police for being able to put Men on the beat and said the station had to be "well run". FOOTNOTE: Mr Burns said police themselves could not generate extra funds to boost the police budget. All money collected as a result of radar traps, RID, and other offences were paid into consolidated revenue.

Hard work pays off with big fete MONTHS of hard work has finally paid off and the Emu Park State Primary school can now reap the benefits of its fete. Parents and citizen association treasurer Carol Uebegang said more than $3000 had been raised from the fete, which drew a large crowd. One of the most popular attractions was scenic helicopter rides around Emu Park. People were ferried to the airstrip for their rides. "Most stalls sold out before the four o'clock finish except for the odd box of icecream," Mrs Uebegang said. Some of the other attractions was Emu Park's Julie's Jazzer group, an aerial ping pong ball drop and train rides. Money raised goes toward constructing a 6m x 6m shed at the school. This shed will shelter equipment such as slashers, tractors and mowers. The shed is expected to cost between $4000 and $5000 and the fete takings will go toward paying it off.

could soon have another play area if Livingstone Shire Council gives permission for joint usage of land on the corner of Arthur and Burnett Streets. Principal Clive Steele asked council to consider the school's request to use the oval being constructed at the site. He said playground space was very restricted with children using St Ursula's College's grounds on a rotational basis. He said the oval would be used a great deal for team events plus a variety of sports and organised games. The area is Land Administration Commission recreation reserve and Yeppoon Australian Rules Club has sought permission to lease it. If the lease proposal proceeds, Sacred Heart may be able to enter into an agreement with the Aussie Rules club for use of the grounds. Council agreed to investigate the possible joint usage of the land after a filling project with material from the Main Roads Farnborough job is finished.

and maintains the highest standards, but I am always prepared to learn from someone with greater expertise, as your comments suggest you have. I invite you to work with me for one week ... when convenient to you, but in the very near future, to help me "lift my game". I suggest you start work at 6.30am on Monday, August 31, 1987. Because of your expertise we will treat you as a proprietor (that is, like my wife and myself) ... we work seven days a week, 16 hours a day. I'm afraid my overheads won't run to another apron (there are 11 of us working here) so, please provide your own. Your blanket statement that the potato vending idea will make Yeppoon takeaways lift their game shows your naivety ... about the potato vendor and my business. This is your opportunity to gain some firsthand experience to support your apparently ill-considered statement. It's up to you Cr Cogill. Either start work here and help me lift my game or apologise to Yeppoon businesses in this paper as soon as possible.

Shopping area now adequate IT would appear that everyone has lost sight of the main reason for the objection of any vendor or vendors on the beachfront at Yeppoon. The main reason is lack of people — both locals and tourists. Yeppoon is not a greatly populated area such as Rockhampton and many of our locals are either retired or out of work. It doesn't make much sense to anyone to allow another business to start up and try to compete instead of complement. Should the Livingstone Shire Council pass a policy for beachfront vendors I would certainly be interested as would many others in our small community .., but I would like to be assured that the valuable and beautiful beachfront will not become like a flea market and rubbish area. I have always believed a recreation area is for recreation and relaxing, not a market place. Our commercial area servicing the beachfront is more than adequate for our influx of weekenders.

0 ABOVE: Main Roads bridge foreman John Murphy points out the curve in the crib wall being built around the Bluff to retain the cliff face which was dug out to make way for the four-lane highway to the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort.

LONG CRIB WALL NOW UNDER CONSTRUCTION ONE of Queensland's longest crib walls is being built to retain a section of the Bluff. The crib wall is one of three planned to help retain parts of the Bluff which have been cut away and are in danger of sliding without support. The job is expected to cost about $200,000 and will take at least another month to complete, bridge foreman John Murphy said. A 32m wall has already been finished and work is still underway on the longest wall, which is 182m. Mr Murphy said this was probably one of the longest walls in Queensland. Work hasn't started on the last wall in front of Bayview Tower Motor Inn. Preparations for the crib wall involved excavators and graters digging out to planned levels. A reinforcing strip of concrete is then laid as a base. Rows of concrete, called stretchers, are laid on the base: Workers then follow with

alternate headers and false headers (more concrete blocks) at right-angles to the stretchers. After three layers have been completed, sub-grade soil is put behind the wall while inside, granular fill finishes off the crib. The wall is designed to fet water flow through it, and a drain, of permeable material, helps this flow. At two different levels a geo-textile material will be laid which is capable of growing plants. It is hoped this will beautify the wall. Investagations are still being made to find the right types of plants for the wall. On top, there will be a concrete drain to help stop dirt getting into the crib wall as well as taking away any water. Mr Murphy said $96,000 was being spent on special concrete for the job. Because Yeppoon is close to the beach the concrete has been specially designed to help stop steel corrosion. This wall also curves in two places. Mr

Murphy said this was due to the road layout. When laying the base, the wall will follow the road and this involves two curves. Although not pronounced curves, it does require special Care' to make sure the base line, and then the crib wall, follows the road. It is necessary to have the crib wall to ensure parts of the Bluff remain intact. Sections that have large rocks and other cohesive materials don't need this wall but where there is a lot of clay material, easily washed away during wet weather, the walls will be built. This involves only three areas; one outside the Bayview Tower, one in the middle of the Bluff and the last, and longest, at the northern end of the Bluff. Mr Murphy said if part of the Bluff hadn't been cut away Main Roads would have had to resume part of the park on the other side. Earthworks are still continuing on the fourlane highway with everything going according to schedule.

Any Division one players are also invited to join in if they are available.

YEPPOON Indoor Bowling Cluu members seem to have an antichampionship complex. At the July monthly meeting it was announced. that the club singles championships would be played on August 29, (tonight Saturday). But at the time of writing this report (Monday), only 21 players out of a total membership of 130 have nominated for this fixture. With 16 men and 16 women needed to make the championship viable and with nominations closing on last Wednesday, it looks as if the championships will be again cancelled for the second time this year. Singles and doubles championship winners names go down in posterity on club honour boards so it is difficult to understand the reluctance of members to enter into club competitions. Let's hope that a last-minute rush of nominations have proved my predictions of cancellation are false and that I am reporting the results next week about the Yeppoon Indoor Bowling Club singles championships. There are still some vacancies for the visit by club players to Mackay next weekend, September 5, 6 and 7.

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.

THE 1987/88 budget, which was adopted by council in August included a considerable programme for the council's works Department. The programme consists of roadworks, drainage, parks development, water supply and sewerage upgrading and beach protection. The roadworks construction funds, which are made up of revenue, loans, subsidy and Commonwealth Aid, amount to abotit $1.4 million, depending on finalisation of government funding. Road maintenance funds for all divisions are about $820,000. Works have already been undertaken since the start of this financial year in the Mt Chalmers area, Thompsohs Point Road, Dairy Inn Road, Nerimbera Area, Ogmore Connection Road, Ogmore-Kooltandra Road, Stoodleigh Road, Fourteen Mile Road, Gunder Road, plus various minor works. During the coming month it is intended to undertake the following works in each division:O Division one: Coowonga Area Roads; grade and gravel resheeting. Start Dairy Inn Road construction and bitumen seal. ❑ Division two: Following completion of Yeppoon-Byfield Road construction for the Main Roads Department, council will undertake reconstruction of Arthur Street, which includes the section between Queen Street and. James .Street and the construction of a roundabout at the Queen Street intersection, plus construction of kerb and channel and bitumen widening in Charles Street. ❑ Division three: Construction of gully crossing and bitumen seal on Glenprairie Road. o Division four: Steiners Road, Griess Road, Newell Lane and Vass Road; maintenance grading and.gravel resheeting. Council will also be constructing approaches to the Coolcora Railway overpass on the Emu Park-Rockhampton Road for the Main Roads Department. These works cost in the order of $1.3 milliorrand are expected to be completed by Christmas. , Drainage works are now being constructed in Tanby Road, where underground drainage is being installed from McBean Street to Oak Street, and the open channel in the industrial area is to be concrete lined. CEP projects in the Native Gardens on the beachfront at Anzac Parade and in Beaman Park are already proceeding and have sufficient funds for a further 10 weeks. The Water Supply and Sewerage Department has carried out various relocation of services in conjunction with the four lane construction of Farnborough Road.

ID THIS article, by Livingstone Shire Council engineer Pat Murphy, is the first of monthly series designed to inform readers of council's activities, particularly on roads, in the coming month. The idea for the articles came about at a recent meeting of the Cawarral-Mt Chalmers Progress Association attended by shire chairman Cr John Bowen and division one councillor Duncan McDonald. Association members had been arguing that not enough was being done to improve their roads and they wanted to see what they were getting for their money. Further works on this project will be required in the next few months, but in the interim, replacement and realignment of old mains in Yeppoon is being undertaken in conjunction with road construction in Arthur Street and Charles Street. This main replacement programme has been brought about because of the quality of the old mains installed in the original scheme, which has resulted in a high incidence of main breakages in the reticulation system. Stage two of the distribution main in Emu Park will also be. completed this financial year, while pumps stations should be constructed at The daVes and St Faith's Reservoir. Designs for ,the proposed water treatment . plant, being prepared by consulting engineers, Ullman and Nolan, shbuld be completed near the end of September and construction should start prior to Deceinber. Upgrading of sewerage pump stations and the sewerage treatment plant will also be undertaken during this financial year. Beach protection works, which mainly involves fencing and walkways on Kemp Beach and Kinka Beach, will also be carried out.

Fund-raising train ride to Caves will aid Coast's Miss Aust. entrant PLANS for a train ride from Yeppoon to the Caves has attracted a number of interested people. The train ride, starting from Yeppoon and going to the Caves, will be held on Saturday, September 5 beginning at 3pm. Organiser Barbara McDonald said there was room for 250 people on the train and already 100 people had booked. Included in the cost of $25 is the train trip,a barbecue tea at the Caves Hotel and entry into the dance hall. Some of the entertainment includes Three Star, a four-piece band with music to cater for all age groups but the train entertainment is being kept a mystery. Mrs McDonald said she had organised the trip with the idea of giving younger people something to do but she had been suprised to see a lot of older people wanting to make the trip. "If there is a good response to this excursion it might give other community organisations the incentive to hold more," Mrs McDonald said. The train will get back from the Caves at 2.30am on Sunday, September 6. Any money raised will go to the Queensland Spastic Welfare League Quest entrant Karlene McDonald. It's Karlene's


A JET-SKI hire business will operate from the southern end of Fisherman's Beach at Emu Park. Council approved an application from Paul Evans who sought to operate his proposed business north of Emu Park's Singing Ship. It approved the business for the southern end of Emu Park's main beach or at any site located away from built up areas. Mr Evans wrote to council seeking approval to open a jet ski business with two water bikes, one tandem and two other solo jet skis. He said all safety requirments would be strictly adhered to and in order to open the business needed council approval for his proposed operation site. The shire engineer's report told council Mr Evans wanted to operate his business immediately north of the Singing Ship but the area nominated was a gazetted bathing reserve and was an undesirable site. It said another location would have to be found which had to meet certain criteria including the exact location, safety requirments and approval from the necessary authorities. While Mr Evan's proposed site was unsuitable council said it would grant permission for the business to operate at the southern end of Fisherman's Beach or at any other site located away from built-up areas.

CHORAL SOCIETY PRESET It's the work behind the scenes that puts the sparkle into the stagecraft YEPPOON Choral Society has attracted a range of people with interesting backgrounds. Some have had previous stage experience, others have joined because a member of their family or a friend was involYed and others have joined because they wanted to help. Quite often the people in the background are forgotten by the audience, but never by the people on stage. The Merry Widow production crew is headed by producer Peter Green who also has the role of Danilo. Shirley Green, an original choral society member, is musical director. Her able assistant is Betty McLucas who stars as Anna. Pianist Marie Ganter has played for every production since 1966. Marie has had a long musical and business history with Yeppoon as well as being connected with one of the pioneering families from Byfield. Dot Codd and Mary Lindley are in charge of wardrobe. Dott is also in the chorus. The show wouldn't look quite right if the actors and actresses weren't `made-up' and that job is done very effectively by Jan Gubbins, who also has a part in the chorus. Peter Green and Tom Wahlin are in charge of set design ... a very tedious, but

exacting job. The stage must be set so that the audience can believe the settings and so the set designers must have an eye for specific detail. Tom Wahlin's experience is mentioned in another story. Rick Robinson is the lighting director. Stage management is Bill Lindley's position in the production. Sometimes a 'prompt' for the actors is needed and Dawn Wahlin does this admirably ... a voice that can't be heard by the audience, but is strong enought to catch the stage-person's ears at just the right time. Every production has unsung heroes and Yeppoon Choral Society is lucky to have so many people who are willing to help in the background. Arthur Lawn is a totally reliable bass. He is always willing to attend working bees and meetings. Judy-Ann Smith is the group's hardworking secretary, keen chorus member, costume design assistant and attends all the working bees and meetings. Norma Upton is a chorus member, publicity officer and self-appointed provider of tea and cake at gatherings and working bees. Among the rest of the unsung heroes is orchestra leader Lesley Levy.

Mery has plenty of scope with choral society MERV SCOPE can't sing or dance but for 22 years he patiently mans the doors during the Yeppoon Choral Society's annual productions. Mr Scope said he had always been associated with the Choral Society because his wife was one of the original members. Often he was needed to help build back drops and help with many other little problems associated with productions. "I was hooked-into going by my wife Kay but it is fun," Mr Scope said. "They're a good crowd and there is no apparent generation gap. "There's no arguing and bickering. "That's probably one of the reasons the Choral Society has survived so long," Mr Scope said. While still enjoying the shows each year Mr Scope said the most memorable were earlier productions. Among them was the first-ever Choral Society show Oklohoma because it was the first. Another was Camelot which was about the sixth or seventh production. Since its inception Mr Scope hasn't noticed dramatic increases in membership. "It varies from year to year but is normally about the same," he said. And, as the years go by the group improves its skills and gains confidence, Mr Scope said. In the first few years, members got nervous on opening night of that year's production but now these earlier members have more confidence and help younger members get over first-night jitters, he said. At the society's production this year Mr Scope will again be manning the front door he is one of many behind-the-scenes.

"I went into the choral society knowing nothing and I'm still learning about lighting."

TOM WAHLIN brings a wealth of experience to Yeppoon Choral Society.

original members

Capricorn Coast Sport and Hobby Centre

THERE are now only six original members still actively invovled with Yeppoon Choral Society ... Kay Scope is one of them. Mrs Scope said the Choral Society had formed in 1964 and there are still five of those original members. They are Shirley Green, Pleasant Thomasson, Val Parker, Irene Holt and Arthur Lawn. However, the Choral Society was the result of some Country Women Association members meeting each week for a singsong. After a while some of the men wanted to join in and a public meeting was held ... the result was the Yeppoon Choral Society. Being an original member has its ups and downs. While still enjoying herself Mrs Scope said she was now conscious of her age. However, she has never played a lead role in productions and the most she has said is a couple of words. Mrs Scope usually sings in the chorus. "I'm alright as long as I'm in the chorus," she said. Mrs Scope's contribution to the Society extends beyond production night. For about 20 years she has held positions either as secretary or treasurer. "I was the first treasurer in 1964, Kay Howe was president and Rach Gibbon, secretary," Mrs Scope said. She now no longer holds an executive position but will still appear in the 1987 Choral Society's production Merry Widow with the chorus.

Military Forces and trains 15 to 17 year olds in brass and marching instruments. It also trains older servicemen. "Times have changed from the 1950s when I joined," he said. After World War I, military bands were only attached to battalions, but in 1968 the Band Corps was formed under one director based in Canberra. Mr Wahlin said that changed the face of music in the forces because it offered people a career, of a different kind, in any of the services. He said that it also meant people are now required to meet certain musical standards where before a person who had no musical knowledge could join a battalion and pursue a musical career. The army holds military concerts and Mr Wahlin said it was like a symphony and great to hear ... flutes, double-bass, trumpets, horns and all other band instruments are played.

0 ABOVE: Mary-Alison McPhie has taken over as manager of Bayuiew Tower.

New Bayview Tower manager has proved tourism benefits everyone MARY-ALISON McPliie, the new Bayview Towers Motor Inn manager, knows tourism benefits everybody in a region. Previously Riverside International general manager, Mary-Alison has spent less than a fortnight at Bayview but has already helped a visitor to find a dentist. She said mixing with guests was part of the job and, last week, a visitor needed help in finding a dentist. Mary-Alison gave directions, the woman took her advice, was pleased with the dental work, and booked further appointments. But that's only part of the job; running Bayview Tower is quite different from running Riverside International.

Mary-Alison has taken over from Enzo Rulli who left Bayview about eight weeks ago to work in Brisbane. Four supervisors had been running the show until early last week when Mary-Alison took over the manager's position. She now travels daily from Rockhampton but will move into Bayview within the next few weeks. At the Riverside there were 60 to 70 permanent and casual employees and at Bayview there are about 32 employees. She has already found Bayview quite different from Riverside because different people stay at the motels. At. Riverside, accommodation is basically aimed at people going to conventions, or businessman, and is often busy during the week without many tourists, Mary-Alison said. On the Capricorn Coast, the main business comes from tourists. Mary-Alison said Bayview was fairly quiet during the week with busy periods at the weekends. She has already taken steps to ensure Bayview Tower would become a regular stopping place for bus tours. Some already stop there but she hopes more will take advantage of the facilities offered. There is a convention room, Bay room, Sails Restaurant and 64 rooms with intercommunicating doors if necessary. "It's what the town needed,"Mary-Alison said. I had always wanted to get into this type of work. At first I didn't want to make the move to Bayview but now I've been here for a couple of weeks I couldn't go back to the Riverside, she said. She has brought new ideas to Bayview, one of which will be the . businessmen's blackboard lunches. "The ides here is to have reasonablypriced menus writted on a board. It's ideal for businessmen wanting an alternative place to eat or for women's functions,"she said. . Despite the rumours, Bayview isn't being sold and George Callianotis is still the owner. In line with the national trend, Bayview has joined the Flag Inn group. Joining this organisation means people can book their holidays here from any Flag Inn Motel in Australia. Before joining, Bayview was inspected by representatives to ensure it met their standards. Bayview passed with flying colours and is now listed in Flag Inn's advertising. Mary-Alison said the position alone of Bayview Tower, near the beach, was inviting. She sees continual growth ahead for the landmark in the main street of Yeppoon: dwi

0 By Brian Brettell THE first annual general meeting of the Capricorn Coast Swimming Club held at the Cooee Bay hall on Wednesday, August 26, 1987 was a total failure. Of the eight people attending, three were members of the out-going executive. It was not possible to form a new committee as all present had on more than one previous occasion held executive positions. Surely there are some interested persons whose children enjoy the benefits of the swimming club, willing to accept a position. It is disappointing to think there are parents in our community willing to accept the benefits the club gives their children but unwilling to contribute to its continuance. The club is held for the benefit and enjoyment of the children and teenagers of the Capricorn Coast who need the organisational abilities of adults to further their interests in swimming. A second and final annual general meeting will be held at the Cooee Bay hall at 7.30pm on Wednesday, September 9. Should the further attempt be

unsuccessful, there will not be a swimming club on the Capricorn Coast. In January this year the club was formed with no funds and no equipment and has developed to such an extent that it is to host the Tropic of Capricorn Championships in October. This could be the last official function conducted under the banner of the Capricorn Coast Swimming Club. Personal invitations will be forwarded to all members and their parents in a last attempt to receive some support and attendance at the meeting on September 9. Organisers said that if a committee is not formed at that meeting the club will cease to exist.

Gallery watches close finishes Long, close matches continued to claim the attention of the gallery in the Capricorn Coast A grade squash competition. The closest of the night was the Neil Roberts v Glen Ward match. Neil took Mighty Macks only point with a 3-2 win over Glen with the points 38 each. Chris Callard out-gunned Ray Campbell after a slow start to win 3-1 for Mariners. True to name, Strugglers did just that all night. Warren Royal at number four claimed the only point with a 10-9 win in the fourth against Len Keily in a match in which neither player appeared to want to be far from the action. Larry Owens for Tony's BYO came from behind to defeat Struggles Damien Brierty in five, while Chris Hacker did the same for Peter Gordon. Front Liners showed their latent talent with a two rubber each eight games to seven win over Anyone for Tennis despite their number two Brian Umlauft having to retire in the third game with a left-handed wrench when leading.2-0 over Bernard Lacey.

THERE'S a cricket bat at the Mirror office ... it turned up on Tuesday from St Brendan's College and, aside from the fact that it's a top bat it's autographed. This bat is a genuine, dinki-di, 110 per cent collector's item ... and it could be yours, to have and to hold, forever. All you have to do is buy a raffle ticket and help St Brendan's defray the expenses involved in staging a cricket match between the Brisbane Wanderers and a representative Central Queensland team. if you see someone selling tickets, stop and buy one. Oh, what makes the bat worth winning? Only the signatures from all the players in the 1986/87 Australian Test side plus those from the England and West Indies players in the same season. That's some bat!!! 0 0 0

HAVE you ever wondered about the awkwardness that must be involved when two people, who have each been married before, decide to marry each other? There must be times when the new husband calls his new wife by his former (note I didn't say "old") wife's name and vice versa. In some ways it must be great to have a new wife or husband ... all those old jokes and sportin achievements and so on can be recycled for at least another 10 tellings before the new partner calls a halt. But what brings this to mind is a Yeppoon bloke who is in the situation just described. Now whenever he goes out to a restaurant he orders veal. Always veal. Nothing else. Just veal. His wife sits opposite in these forays into restaurants and orders what she likes and watches her husband eat his veal. Last week, after another burst of veal, it was too much. She ate in silence, watched him wolf down the veal, pay the waiter ... then she struck. "Why do you always eat veal when we go out. Why don't you ever order anything else? Why won't you eat veal at home? If I cook you veal you turn up your nose, pick up the plate and throw it up the yard," she said (or words to that effect). Patient husband waited ... It was no use trying to get a word in, the tirade flowed. Finally, when the torrent of words had slowed to a trickle, he said (cautiously):"But I love veal. "Wife roared back into the fight: "No you don't, you hate it, you loathe it." Husband (meek and mild): "No dear, that was your former husband. He hated veal ... I love it."And that explained why he had never been serve veal since he married for the second time!!! ID ❑ 0

BY the way, that blue was made when the story was being rewritten. Rewriting can be dangerous ... years ago "Old Baldy" rewrote' a bridal picture blockline and wound up marrying the priest to the bride! But that's not as bad as a paper years ago which is supposed to have muddled up bloc klines under two pits. The first pic was of a cow and a bull and the lines underneath said: Mr and Mrs Soandso after their recent wedding...". But the other was a beauty. It showed a bride and groom ... and the lines said: "Champion stud bull and champion milker ..."!!!
