D CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 experienced for years at the school. Sacred Heart Primary School principal Clive Steele said there wasn't one day this term when the whole school had assembled because of the 'flu. he described the 'flu virus which swept the school as 'savage' and the worst to hit the school in his four years at Sacred Heart. In the first week of August, the school population of 214 was hard hit. On Monday, August 3, 48 students were absent; 43 missed school on Tuesday, August 4; 37 on August 5; 49 on August 6 and 51 on August 7. Most classes had suffered effects of the 'flu. Mr Steele said he thought the virus was now easing ... but last week year one students again were dealt a blow with an average Of eight away each day. he said there were only 41 year one students and at the week's end, a total of 41 had missed school. Not even the teachers could avoid the 'flu. "Some took a few days off but many should have stayed home but turned up to school," Mr Steele said. He said the 'flu had flattened a lot of people and althought not as bad as earlier this term, the school was yet to claim 100 per cent attendance. Although not as greatly affected as a number of other schools, St Brendan's College had an average of 10 students each day absent through 'flu. However, it did reach 20 per day but this was only during the worst period experienced by the school about two to three weeks ago. The school's sister, Shirley Perkins, said ithad been a nasty sort of 'flu with a lot of students in worse condition than they may have looked. She said that because the school had boarding facilities, the virus had been contained and hadn't really reached epidemic proportions. The 'flu is now in its down-hill stage with the school and cases have decreased.

Budget 'great news MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton said $10 million set aside in the State Budget for Rosslyn Bay Harbour works was "great news for tourism and great news for the Capricorn Coast". He said Rosslyn Bay was the only harbour specifically named in the budget. "It is tremendous news for Central Queensland and means the start of the harbour's northern wall is certain to start this year," he said. Mr Hinton said the Premier's commitment in the budget was a recognition by the government for the specific case he had put forward for upgrading the harbour and for increased tourism and professional and amateur fishing onthe Coast.

The Trinidad Calypso Steel Band will provide the music for the cabaret.

Cancer appeal needs drivers THE annual Queensland Cancer fund appeal will be held on the Coast tomorrow (Sunday). Yeppoon co-ordinator Ernie O'Sullivan and Emu Park's co-ordinator Matthew Hoch are still looking for drivers and collectors.

Collections will be made between 9am and noon on Sunday and interested volunteers can contact Mr O'Sullivan on 39 1110 (work), or 39 1327(home), and Mr Hoch on 39 6308. Special donation envelopes had been delivered door-to-door this week and the volunteers are needed to collect them. Mr O'Sullivan said he wanted total community support for the appeal which had already raised money for32 different cancer research projects in Queensland. Mr O'Sullivan said the appeal was absolutely vital if work by the Cancer fund continued in the field of cancer research, education, treatment and service.

DIVISION one councillor Duncan McDonald has submitted a notice of motion to council which could determine the future of division boundaries. Cr McDonald said this week the motion would be tabled at the September meeting next week. He said it asked council to undertake a review of boundaries and membership level in the shire with a future aim of changing the boundaries in the shire. "Rural areas in division's one and two should be separated from the Coastal urban strip and also look at instituting a ward system similar to Rockhampton's system," Cr McDonald said. Boundaries would be determined with equitable population distribution and by unimproved capital value, he said. "I think it's a good idea to separate the urban and rural areas because it would give the rural areas better representation," Cr McDonald said.

New cruise boat THE luxurious 5500,000 13 metre Golden Phoenix cruiser started operations last week adding a new standard of service for Great Keppel Island day trippers. Three 120hp diesel engines can thrust the Golden Phoenix through the sea at around 25 knots offering a quick getaway for today's smart set. Skipper Chris Hacker said the Hydrofield craft normally cruised at 15 knots to ensure all passengers enjoyed the conditions. The craft's first cruise started on Saturday morning and about 16 passengers lapped up the luxury visiting Great Keppel Island. They had lunch at Great Keppel and either lazed on the beach or took part in strenuous activities such as snorkelling or riding a jet-ski. For those who wanted to see the same sights as the snorkellers without getting their feet wet, there was an optional cruise to Middle Island Underwater Observatory.

THE Capricorn Coast's Native Garden is already seven weeks into stage one and within 10 to 12 weeks could be completed. The Native Garden, being developed at the northern end of Lammermoor Beach, is under Livingstone Shire council control and will involve funding from the Federal government. About 596,000 under the Federal government's CEP fund will go toward developing a number of projects including Emu Park Lagoon, concrete footpaths in Yeppoon's business centre, Anzac Parade, Beaman Park and the Native Garden. Shire engineer Pat Murphy said $50,000 had been set aside for the NativeGarden and the balance would go toward the other projects. He said stage one had already started and work would continue until the CEP funds ran out in about 10 to 12 weeks. Cr Geoff Cue and the other four division two councillors were involved with the garden's progress. Cr Cue said there had been a number of talks with community groups, including Yeppoon Lions and Lioness Clubs and the Wildlife Preservation Society, and the result was the idea to develop a public Native Garden. Stage one includes scenic walkways, a creek bridge crossing, car parking facilities, grassed open areas, and also the planting of hundreds of additional trees. The Wildlife Preservation Society is assisting with the tree planting and a number of other groups will assist with the project. Assistant engineer Peter Harbeck and parks and gardens foreman Bill Kaney have both offered help with planning. The project not only has council support but also a number of community organisations will be contributing, including the Yeppoon Lions club which gave $2000 toward the project.

Major loop route 'best means of promoting Coast tourism' - MLA A MAJOR loop route for tourist traffic via the Capricorn Coast was the best means of promoting tourism, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week. A major road upgrading already underway was the best means of achieving that aim, he said. Mr Hinton said "infighting between competing tourist organisations on the Coast has done nothing for tourist promotion and the entrenched personal positions show no signs of abating". He said it was partially at his request that State Tourism Minister Geoff Muntz had requested the restructure of the regional tourist group's (CTDO) constitution. "The CTDO's new constitution has certainly improved the organisation's regional nature, which has stood accused of being Rockhampton orientated, but through its subscriber-only nature, it appears to be in conflict with the sub-regional groupings such as the Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation (CCTO) and the Central Highlands Tourist Organisation," Mr Hinton said. This will do nothing to improve harmony in the industry on the Coast." He said Mr Muntz had indicated to him that an assessment of regional tourist boundaries across Queensland was imminent and the region's problems would be addressed in that assessment. "In the meantime, I have no intention of taking sides in the dispute, being influenced by empty Federal ALP rhetoric, and will judge each tourist issue on its merits," Mr Hinton said. "My first priority is to upgrade tourist attractions on the Coast and to do this we must attract tourist traffic. "The most obvious means is an upgraded tourist loop road from Rockhampton to Emu Park, to Kinka Beach to Yeppoon. "The new overhead rialway bridge costing' $1.7 million now under construction on the Emu Park-Rockhampton Road, is a good start. "The $6 million allocated to a four-lane highway from Rockhampton to Yeppoon will assist enormously. "However, the whole roadway complex must be upgraded, including the Causeway, so that people stay on the Coast as an alternative to Rockhampton, and use the

loop road as an integral part of their northern tourist trip." Mr Hinton said he further envisaged a new road from about the Capricorn Iwasaki turnoff on Farnborough Road via the attractive Lake Mary area to the Caves, to enhance the northern route. "The promotion of the route must be substantial with adequate brochures and also adequate signing before and within Rockhampton," he said. It can and must happen. It will boost tourism and increased numbers will lead to upgrading of facilities and greater prosperity for our area."

Her efforts in these sections resulted in two aggregate wins, one for the Beverly Parker trophy for the highest aggregate points in demi character, classical ballet solo and points solo in the 15 years and under 18 age group. The other trophy donated by Wendy Withers dates back to 1951 and is for the highest aggregate in any classical and point solo in the 15 years and under 18 section.

CAPRICORN Coast's Olympic swimming pool is open and ready for summer. Pool lessee David Milburn said it was now open seven days a week, from Monday to Friday between 10am and 4pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 5pm. He said these times would be extended during the school holidays and also would be progressively extended through the season as demand grew. He reminds bathers facilities available include the eight-lane50m pool and circular wading pool. Some of the services available include pool hire, swimming classes and squad training. Mr Milburn said the pool was already booked for two major Central Queensland swimming carnivals, the Tropic of Capricorn carnival in October and the Capricorn Coast Sprint and Relay carnival in February. He hoped shade structures would be constructed to improve conditions for bathers. "No stingers or tides will affect bathers at this pool," Mr Milburn said. Mr Milburn is a former Queensland stillwater title and record holder who has a number of coaching years behind him. Some swimmers he's coached include Australian representative Jackie Grant who is at the Institute of Sport; amputee Olympian Tracey Lewis; and 13-year-old current age butterfly champion Jason O'Pray. He is a nationally accredited level three swimming coach, an examiner with the Royal Life-saving Society and accreditted fitness leader. Fellow coach is Steven Donnelly • a marathon swimmer who still holds a number of endurance race records. Mr Milburn said Mr Donnelly'sexpertise in ocean and surf swimming would benefit the community. Mr Donnelly is also an accreditted coach and responsible for the successes of some Rockhampton swimmers. Mr Milburn and Mr Donnelly hope to develop the ability of Capricorn Coast swimming into a considerable force in stillwater and surf competitions. Squad training would begin in September, Mr Milburn said. Classes also begin in October and advance bookings can be made by phoning Mr Milburn on 39 4537. Adults interested in fitness have a number of classes to choose from. These include aerobics, stretch and tone classes, AUSSIE club and water polo. Interested people should registar with the pool now. High standards will be maintained in learnto-swim programmes and lessons structured

with her other wins.

THE Wildlife Preservation Society announced the winner of its 25th Anniversary Quiz this week. Larisa Lindsay of Frenchville won the $50 after answering the quiz questions correctly. Spokesman Molly Crawford said the two most incorrectly answered questions were about the Flatback Turtle and nearest national park excluding Mt Jim Crow. The answers should have been: The Flatback turtle is the species that has an important breeding ground in Keppel Bay; Excluding Mt Jim Crow, the Fitzroy/Caves National Park is ,the nearest one to Rockhampton. The quiz was run by the Wildlife Preservation Society's Capricorn Coast branch.

Top night out THIRTY-FOUR people enjoyed a night out at the Caves despite organisers having to . cancel the train trip.. Barbara McDonald said the disappointing turn-out had caused the train trip cancellation but those who did travel by bus had a very enjoyable time. "The people who went were marvellous," she said. Guitarist Dave Kershaw entertained before tea and the group swapped yarns before dinner. The band, Three Play, played music in the Caves hall and visitors danced and sang until 11.30pm. Mrs McDonald said due to the lack of support, Queensland Spastic Welfare League quest entrant Karlene McDonald hadn't been able to raise much money and now relied upon her final fundraising venture in October. Karlene will be holding a Mardi Gras on October 2 and any fundraising group or organisation interested in having a stall should ring Mrs McDonald on 39 3133 for further information.

Run of the mill"Anywhere, anytime' challenge from Principal takes quiet week for ALP to Hinton on environment issue Bileola position THE Labor Party has challenged Member "With such compelling arguments for the SACRED Heart Primary school will lose for Broadsound Denis Hinton to debate declaration of the proposal, it is time that Mr its principal of four years, Clive Stele, when Yeppoon Police environmental issues in the Broadsound Hinton stood up in public and stated why the he leaves to take a position in Biloela at the electorate. Labor's shadow Environment Minister Pat Comben challenged Mr Hinton to the debate "anywhere, anytime". "If Mr Hinton has "considerable support within the State Government for the declaration of a Bayfield National Park," why is it still not declared 20 years after it was first suggested?" Mr Comben said. "Only one action will convince people that the Bayfield proposal has support from Mr Hinton and the government, and that is immediate azettal. "The government and Mr Hinton have vacillated for too long. Only action now will satisfy Queenslanders." Mr Comben said the Bayfield proposal was an enormously important prospect for the Rockhampton area which needs such a strategically placed park. Local residents would have to go to Eurimbula National Park or Mackay to find similar undeveloped lengths of spectacular beaches and coastline. "A great variety of vegetation types and landforms exist within the park proposal and preservation of these areas is critical to coastal recreation planning and conservation," he said.

FIRE, Ambulance and Police officers have had a fairly quite week with only the usual `run-of-the-mill' activities happening. Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer said this week nothing major had occured around the Capricorn Coast region except for the normal weekly problems including drunkeness, licence issues and small accidents with no-one being injured. However, he said motorists could expect increased patrolling of roads during the school holidays which start on Saturday, September 19. Anyone seen breaking the law can expect to be dealt with as seen fit by the police in order to ensure the roads were safe for law abiding motorists, Sgt Tanzer School children are also advised to act sensibly and safely during the holidays and to avoid temptation which could lead them astray. Yeppoon Ambulance and Fire officers also report a quiet week and support Sgt Tanzer's points of being safe and sensible during the holidays. Yeppoon Ambulance superintendent Geoff Reynolds said this week had been really good with few incidents.

Who deserves an award for 1988? LIVINGSTONE Shire Council is seeking people to be nominated for 1988 Australia Day Awards. c• "With 1988 being our bicentenary, a great opportunity exists for the people of Livingstone Shire to nominate persons worthy of being considered for an award on this great occasion," Livingstone shire clerk Jim Brown said. Nominations must be accompanied by supporting information so that the selection committee will be able to consider all submissions received. There are four awards available. The citizen's award is for a person 25 years or older on January 26, 1988. The young citizen award is for a person under 25 years on January 26, 1988. There are two sports medallions ... one to a participant with a record of achievement and the other to a person who has made a significant contribution as a coach, official and/or administrator. All persons resident in Livingstone Shire during 1987 are eligible. "Residents who have made a noteworthy contribution during 1987 or who have given outstanding service to the local community over a number of years shall be eligible," Mr Brown said. Nominations will be received up to Friday, November 20 at the shire chambers. After that date a selection committee will decide the various recipients. The awards are organised through the Australia Day Council and presented at an appropriate Australia Day ceremony.

Art standard extremely high THE standard at this year's Exhibition of Young People's Art was extremely high, organiser Dale Childs said. She said because of the standard it made the selectors task difficult. Artist Luigi Nuzzolese was unable to help with the judging but a Florentine School of Progressive art representative, Francis Paterson, was present. Other judges included Mabel Edmunds and Denise Gibbons who, with Francis, had the difficult task of choosing pieces for encouragement awards and winners. Results: pre-school section winner was Damien Barry, Yeppoon with 'Little Bus'; KAAS award for best overall, Michael Staskiewicz, St Brendan's College; Keppel Art and Framing award for best oil/acrylic, Lee Smith, Glenmore High school; Florentine award for best poster, Crystal Manning, North Rockhampton High school; Capricorn Coast Mirror award for design, Glen Hooper, St Brendan's College; Capricorn Coast Mirror award for Collage, Jill Deuter, Yeppoon High school; Florentine award for best print, Leise Childs, Glenmore State High school; Mill Gallery award, "Through the Window", Yeppoon State High school. Artists highly commended were: Kathy Price, Yeppoon High school; Justin Wylie, St Brendan's College; Geraldine Sherry, St Ursula's College; and C Bosley. "The 1987 exhibition continues until September 13 and everyone is welcome to come and look at the works," Mrs Childs! said.

end of this year. Mr Steele said he was leaving to become principal at Biloela's St Joseph Primary school which he described as similar in size to Sacred Heart. His replacement is Laurie Fitzgerald who has for the past years been the Capricorn Education Office's Special Project Officer. Mr Steele said Mr Fitzgerald was the first lay principal in the Rockhampton region but in the past few years he held a consultant position which has kept him in contact with school life. "I've thoroughly enjoyed my years at Sacred Heart but look forward to work at Biloela," Mr Steele said. St Joseph's will soon have pre-school to grade 10 and it offered him the first-hand experience which he was keen to get. He feels in time most schools will lean toward this trend and he wanted to get in on the 'ground floor'. He is looking forward to the move but said the family did have mixed feelings.

HERE'S a sick one ... but it's true. A Yeppoon businessman had his car parked in town overnight last week and found the car "bogged" when he went to it in the morning. How can it get bogged when parked smack in the middle of town? Noone knows for sure ... but it wasn't the wheels; it was the windscreen. In case you haven't guessed, some indescribably filthy individual quite literally "bogged" on the bloke's windscreen. Boy, there's a sicko loose in town ... but an agile one!!! 0

CAFL president offers apologies •

ON BEHALF of the Capricornia Australian Football League, I offer apologies with regard to the actions of some players participating in the grand final and I feel sorry for the executives of the clubs concerned, whose players played in a manner which would not have been condoned. Australian Rules is a spectacular game and the league will not see this code impaired by the actions of some players. The league has been silent so as not to condemn the players before appearing at the tribunal which, as a result, some players have been punished with suspensions of one to oneand-a-half years. The Capricornia League is a very strong league and is held in high esteemand has one of the biggest Junior Leagues who have excelled and shown great promise as future senior players. Discussions at league level are being held and I can assure you, our players and supporters, we will not tolerate displays of this nature and that procedures will be adopted with stricter penalties, and that no disrespect of scenes of this nature will again occur to mar the code of Australian Rules. W J Thomson, president Capricornia Australian Football League.

THAT'S one of the penalties of being in business ... but Chef Barry does not have to feel he's the only one it happened to. Way back in the Swinging Sixties on the Gold Coast there was a lot of talk and action from tourist groups about getting U.S. servicemen to spend their Vietnam War Rest and Recuperation leave at Surfers Paradise. At that time (about 1967 or '68) all the U.S. servicemen were going to Sydney's Kings Cross. There was a trickle of crew cuts and accents from the south but these were the servicemen who wanted to see Australia in their short stay and either flew north or took a bus. Then came the night everyone had been waiting for ... a U.S. Army Colonel phoned the Beachcomber at Surfers Paradise. He was at Brisbane Airport with a Starlifter (a Military Airlift Command transport plane seen in Rockhampton during Kangaroo exercises) full of hungry servicemen looking forward to a week on the Gold Coast. They were part of a contingent chosen to test whether Surfers Paradise could handle a sudden influx of 500 people. (There were doubts in those days that Surfers could handle so many people at once!). Anyway, the Beachcomber was told the 500 servicemen would be arriving in an an hour-and-a-half and would need beds for the night ... also ham and eggs. The motel's staff were at fever pitch; this was what they had been waiting for ... the chance to show their skill. Rooms for so many were arranged in-house and the overflow was booked in at nearby establishments. The manager, (not the famous Bernie Elsey, he was away at Daydream Island at the time) took personal charge of preparing the ham and eggs. Bacon was cut and piled near the huge hotplates and 250 saucers were arranged on the preparation area. Into each saucer, two eggs were emptied. Once the servicemen arrived each saucer's contents could be flipped onto the hotplate together with some strips of bacon and, as the crew cuts entered the dining room they would have been handed a plate of ham and eggs. That was at 7.30pm ... by 10pm, after frantic phone calls, it was obvious the motel had been the victim of a-cruel hoax. The next day, the story was on the front page of the local paper, the Surfers- Pardise Mirror. The heading on the story was: "It was just a cruel yolk!"

counted with one bonus shot awarded, they were down one point with the pressure on John . He failed to put the ball through the basket with Scoob played safe leaving the final score 30-29 to Scoob. The match between Coasters and Saints was a hard fast game. Coasters gave their OK to Saints playing Billabongs' Samantha Willoughby because they were short of players. Jason Rosin was fouled off in the first half leaving Saints no sub. Robert Gudman was playing with an injured leg but saw the game out. Saints led at half time 23-18. Coasters' big men Jim Shackleton and Peter Sherriff came out to even the score but this was not to be as Saints started to move the ball around with Nic Basham screening Coasters out allowing "Caroll" Campbell (28) and Samantha Willoughby (19) to score.

ANOTHER item on a business ... this time it's The Sunflower Patch. Chef Barry had a phone call from Brisbane about a fortnight ago asking if it would be possible for him to provide breakfast for 10 on a day about a week away. Barry took the booking, checked it, confirmed the date, and guaranteed to have breakfast ready and waiting for the bunch of tourists who would be visiting. The day dawns, Chef Barry jumps out of bed and sets off for work bright and early. Whistling to himself, he creates a breakfast delicacy for the party of 10 ... scrambled eggs and ham, as requested. But they didn't show. Not then, not later, not ever. Barry was offering ham and eggs to customers all that day!
