Air ort focusses attention on the Coast THE news of an international airpOrt at the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort has created a storm ... and it's still a long way from being built. It has the potential to open wide divisions between the Capricorn Coast and Rockhampton because, for perhaps the first time, the Coast is getting the attention it deserves and Rockhampton looks to be the loser. Rumours abound about the airport; they have for years. Despite what has been printed and broadcast this week, there has been no official announcement from the resort. If there's an airport "just two years away," as some reports have it, an official announcement can be expected ... and soon. But any announcement will only come when every last detail has been worked out. Livingstone Shire Council has discussed the airport ... but in committee, and unofficially. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said council had not received any paperwork on the airport. Capricorn Iwasaki Resort principal Yohachiro Iwasaki is unavailable for comment, although he is still at the resort after arriving some weeks ago. It is believed Mr Iwasaki left the Coast some weeks ago to visit Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane. It is nicely he spoke with government officials while in Canberra. The idea of an airport at the resort*is no secret. It has been openly discussed for years

Runners will turn out for the fun of it!

RESTAURATEUR Bev Laundry will defend her title thisweekend in the Emu Park Fun Run. It's the sixth time Emu Park has held the run and a number of teams and organisations have been busily training over recent months. Bev won last year's race in 33 minutes 21 seconds and will be hoping to improve this time. The men's section should be exciting if last year's winner David Akeringa and Trent Hall, who was 12 seconds behind, again battle out the 8.2km run. Teams or individuals can enter the 8.2km course around Emu Park and there is also a 4km beach run for juniors and the less competitive runners. Bev said last year some runners had a swim off the beach before finishing the event. Another feature will be a section for walkers who will be required to enter the longer distance. Entrants in this section are asked to assemble at Bell Park by 7am. The runners start about 8am. Proceeds from this year's race goes to the Don Ireland Swimming complex and Bev hopes entries could be in early. For further inquiries phone 39 6326.

and, in fact, is probably vital to the resort's viability. The franchise agreement between the State Government and Iwasaki Sangyo Pty Ltd calls for accommodation for something like 22,000 guests. That's a long way down the track but that's a lot of guests ... and they won't all come from Australia. The only way the resort can fulfil this part of the agreement is to promote itself, and heavily, overseas, particularly in Japan. The Capricorn Iwasaki Resort's main opposition is Hawaii and the only way Japanese holiday-makers will make Australia their destination is if they can do it at a price and with a minimum of hassles. The sheer bulk of humanity that 22,000 guests represents must be considered. How many buses would it take to move that many people to Rockhampton to catch a plane_ back to their homeland? Shorten the trip to Mt Jim Crow and the same problems still apply. There's a lot of buses, a lot of shuffling of people and luggage, and language problems. Probably the best way to shift that many people is to have an "inehouse" airport. Naturally enough, Rockhampton City Coundl is not pleased at the idea of its newlyacquired airport becoming second string in the Central Queensland airport "orchestra". •But was Rockhampton airport ever the main choice? It serves a purpose now and will continue to do so; but the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort, with its wide open spaces, does seem to offer distinct advantages. Cr Bowen said council was regularly receiving inquiries from potential developers, especially of island resorts in the Broome Head area. If they go ahead they will need an airport, in the same way that Hamilton Island took off when it opened with its own airport. The Coast's own airport would be so close it would become the logical destination for planes bound for other resorts, especially Great Keppel Island. Somehow, somewhere, among all the words that will be spoken and printed about the proposed airport, the truth will come out. "Knowledgeable" people on the Coast are already saying the airport has been pegged out. Engineers and surveyors are supposed to have marked out the site and noise factors have been taken into account. It is believed no jet will come closer than 8km to Yeppoon when landing or taking off and that, as a result, therewill be no noise pollution. That seems logical. The Capricorn Iwasaki Resort is closer to the proposed airport site than Yeppoon ... and it's hardly likely the resort will plague its own guests with roaring jet engines. But whatever is said right now it still comes under the heading of speculation until something official is announced.

PANCAKES Savoury and Sweet


THE Timbs family of Lammermoor Beach had a lucky escape on Tuesday when their van rolled over in Cliff St, Yeppoon. 'David Timbs said a rear wheel 'mounted an embankment while he was reversing and the other stayed on the road. The car rolled backward slowly and the vehicle reached the point of no return and tipped over. Everything happened so slowly, he had time to call to his children to ensure they had on their seat belts. Mr Timbs ran to phone a tow truck. At the same time, a Yeppoon ambulance 'and police were phoned. Both were on the scene in minutes. No-one was injured and Bill Thorpe of the RACQ service depot set to work to right the van. He attached a rope, pulled the van back onto two wheels and held the strain while Mr Timbs drove down the embankment, watched by Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge ,Sgt lc Ken Tanzer.

Fisherman waits for LAC decision that will decide his working future

aturday 3rd October While Stocks Last. Limit Rights Reserved

A COAST fisherman is awaiting a Lands Administration Commission decision which could determine his future. Commercial fisherman Ron Toon will soon know if the outcome of a move by two landholders fora temporary road closurewill cut off any access to his boat, which is moored in Hollins Creek, Stanage Bay area. Earlier this year Mr Toon was given a Livingstone Shire Council lease to moor his boat at Hollins Creek ... this month, council supported a temporary road closure. Mr Toon said there had been an on-going battle between him and two Stanage Bay landowners for more than a year ... and an end to the problems hinges on the Land Administration Ccommission's decision. Mr Toon said his problems started in 1984. He used to own an uninsured boat which he operated from Water Park Creek. In June 1984 he lost all of his fishing gear, and boat, when it struck a rock when entering the creek mouth at Corio Bay. His father-in-law, John Geissman, helped him build another houseboat-type barge more suitable for fishing in Shoalwater Bay. To reach this boat, which he moored at Shoalwater Bay, he needed a 6m. speedboat for the 120km round-trip via Plumb Tree. During these trips to the boat, he crossed an area of open sea which the houseboat wasn't designed to travel. The boat is only powered by an outboard and not a diesel motor. Mr Toon said this wasn't viable for operations and in 1986 he started looking for an alternate boat mooring. This would not only enable him to get to the boat by road but also cut out the speedboat trips. After exploring a number of inlets he found one of the best siteswas at the mouth of Hollins Creek. This is an area of Crown land surrounded be two properties. He said it was only then his problems started. He said he approached one property owner, Duke Island Pastoral Co. for permission to drive across the property to the creek, but was refused. Mr Toon then approached C C Mace and others for permission to travel on their land. However, Mr Toon said the manager said he could use another inlet further north along the Coast. "But this site was unprotected and quite unsuitable for my purposes," he said. It was then he found out about a gazetted road between the two properties. He applied to the LAC for it to be opened. Mr Toon said he didn't want to "create ill-feeling with the landowners but only wanted to make the fishing business viable with less weather restrictions". As far as he is concerned, Hollins Creek offers that protection and is more viable. Mr Geissman was also going to use the beach to collect sand worms. He and Mr Toon wrote to the Lands Administration Commission and the Forestry Department in May 1986 to find out about the gazetted road. The Lands Administration Commission said the road in question wasn't under "any temporary closure provisions in the Land Acts". Land Commissioner E J Gibbons, in a letter dated May 15,1986, said there was no provision for access through the ungazetted environmental park reserve. Mr Toon said the road was overgrown and was closed off by fences. Mr Gibbons said before any destruction of trees could be carried out on any road he would have to get a permit from the Conservator of Forests. Both Mr Toon and Mr Geissman then contacted the Forestry Department and received a reply on May 16, 1986. Forest overseer D N Kington said no timber was to be removed from the area; no suitable timber for posts or mill timber could be cut; and where possible, destruction of potentially marketable young timber species should be avoided. After receiving these letters, they wrote to then shire clerk Bill Cass about council's opinion on opening the gazetted road, for the purpose of "carrying on our fishing business". The letter also said two fences, owned by Duke Island Pastoral Co. and C C Mace, were across the road and obstructing any access. "They should apply for licenses and erect gates in the two fences which are obstructing our access," they wrote. However both Mr Toon and Mr Geissman were prepared to do the necessary work, install a strainer post and stay, but the clerk replied that council objected to opening the roadway because it wouldn't "provide practical, legal access to Hollins Creek". Mr Toon said if it was a matter of legal access whywere people allowed to "get to Plumb Tree when the road terminated on the Main Stanage Bay Road?". "Why aren't we allowed to cross any vacant Crown land?" Mr Toon said. During one council meeting, the point had risen that the Crown land was an environ-

mental park but Mr Toon had this checked with the Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service which said it wasn't a "gazetted environmental park". In August, 1986, Livingstone Shire Council wrote to Mr Mace, and Duke Island Pastoral Company's registered proprietor, Rex Jones, to tell them they had no approval for licensed gates or grids across the gazetted road. The council said if the fences still existed they were to be removed immediately. Mr Toon said the fences were still there about four months later. Mr Toon, who hadn't moved his boat to Hollins Creek, checked the road in December and found the fences still in place. He said he phoned Duke Island Pastoral Co. but he was unable to contact Mr Mace who was away at the time. He said he gave Duke Island Pastoral Co. three days to remove the fence. To ensure he didn't trespass on either property, Mr Toon employed Capricorn Survey Consultants to guarantee "they never went off the road". A few days later he and Mr Geissman spent about four hours installing the gates, fixing a couple of gullies along the road, and making it possible to reach the Hollins Creek Crown land. Mr Toon said he needed permission to use the road before February because that was the start of the barramundi season. "Everything seemed smooth until I returned from a fishing trip in July this year and found Land Administration Commission signs at the beginning and end of the gazetted road," Mr Toon said. "The sign said C C Mace and others, and R L Jones, had asked for a temporary closure on the gazetted road. Objections to this proposal were to be with the Lands Department by October 1." In an effort to improve the situation, Mr Toon wrote to council to appeal against the application from Mr Mace and Mr Jones. His letter and the issue were raised during the August council meeting. Mr Toon was present during the debate about the road closure which resulted in council objecting to any temporary or permanent closure. Cr Barbara Wildin put in a notice of motion for the September meeting to have the August decision rescinded "in light of additional information". At the September meeting, the issue was deferred for discussion in committee. Mr Toon gave four reasons to keep the road open: * it saved 40km on a round trip to Shoalwater Bay; * it saved him about $2200 a year (a season lasts nine months) in fuel costs; * from Hollins Creek, it is easier to get to Shoalwater Bay in nearly any weather. A road closure would force him to operate from Plumb Tree and means 20km of open water and travelling in restricted weather conditions; * at a recent council meeting, approval was given for a permanent mooring in Hollins Creek with the only access being the road.

Landholders give their side of story COLIN Mace said on Wednesday the reason he had submitted a temporary road closure was because the "Livingstone Shire Council asked me". He also said the council had originally voted "un animously" to support the temporary road closure. "They advised me to lodge a temporary road closure because of possible squatter migration when the squatters at Plumb Tree are forced to either buy the land or move," Mr Mace said. "It would only be a temporary seal to stop access until the problem of squatters is fixed," he said. "We don't have anything against Mr Toon and it wouldn't have mattered who raised the issue of opening the gazetted road". Duke Island Pastoral Co. manager Peter Laity said there were two reasons for the temporary road closure. "Firstly, the livestock is in danger from people leaving their bottles lying on the road," he said. "Also if the road is opened it is possible squatters will move into the area. "We are not trying to keep Mr Toon out but don't want the road opened to the public in general. Mr Laity also said he had never been approached by Mr Toon for access to the beach,_ except by phone which was after he had set himself up at Hollins Creek. "It's costing Mr Mace and-Duke Island Pastoral Co. time and money," Mr Laity said. Both Mr Laity and Mr Mace said theyweren't trying to keep Hollins Creek to themselves but hoped for a temporary road closure until the squatting problems could be sorted out.

Water 'all-clear'

Brendan and Pam Williams offer...

THE Capricorn Coast's water supply was given the 'all-clear' sign during the September council meeting. Health surveyor John Harmsworth reported to council the water analysis completed for the second time had returned. He said the results showed the water supply "to be free of herbicide and pesticide residue" to the limit of available testing. Mr Harmsworth said this should allay any fears residents held about the water, and prove it to be within health standards.

Already 21 teams have been attracted by the $1000 cash prize and $200 second prize provided by Woody's store. Despite a poor response from nominees it looked at one stage the event would be cancelled — nominations have come in after extending the closing date. Publicity officer Brian Dorey said Mr and Mrs Wood would put up the $1200 regardless of the limited number of entries. He also said late entries would be accepted until 930am tomorrow (Sunday), before the heats at the Yeppoon Showground start at 10am. The finalists will battle for the money on Saturday, October 3, in the middle of Yeppoon. Another 'first' will be the Lions' Garden and Trade 'Fair being staged in Beaman Park on Wednesday, September 30.

Mr Dorey said theywould be making a number of appearances ... at the Mardi Gras, again on Saturday morning, and later at the queen crowning function on Saturday night in Yeppoon Town Hall. The festival's annual highlight is the procession on Saturday through Yeppoon's business centre. Floats, bands, sporting organisations, service clubs and many other people take part in this parade which starts at 1pm. Due to the many activities involving the business centre and Beaman Park, a number of temporary road closures will be needed, and traffic will have to use an alternate route via John Street or the main highway into town. The longest closure will be from 7am to 3pm when the northern section of James Street, including the centre parking area, the eastern boundary of the Uniting Church, Hill Street and Normanby Street between Mary and Hill Streets. Queen Street will be closed between Hill Street and Anzac Parade from 11am to 2pm while Normanby and James Streets will be closed between Anzac Parade and Park Street from 1130am to 12.10pm.

Ombudsman here to 'keep in touch with local people' at LSC chambers QUEENSLAND ombudsman Cedric Johnson has arranged for his deputy commissioner, Mr F N Albietz, to visit Yeppoon on Thursday, October 8. It is part of a regular programme to "keep in touch with local people and what is concerning them". While in Central Queensland Mr Albietz will call on the local councils to discuss cases on hand together with those raised during the public interview sessions he will be conducting in each centre. On site inspections of particular problems will also be made where necessary. The interviews will be held in Livingstone Shire Council chambers on Thursday, October 8 between 10am and 1pm. Appointments can be made by phoning the council, 39 3388, during office hours. "If you are a consumer of State Government services or are affected by State Government bodies, I may be able to assist you if you have a problem," Mr Johnson said. The ombudsman, or Parliamentary Commissioner for Administrative Investigations as he is more formally known, has jurisdication in relation to all State Government Departments, each of Queensland's 134 Local Authorities and most of the Statutory Authorities (such as hospitals, universities and electricity boards) throughout the State. "Some people have the impression that if they have a problem with a department or authority within my jurisdiction, they can place it in my hands and I will fix it up for them to their satisfaction," he said.

"Unfortunately, it is not as simple as this. I can only assist people if it can be established that they are the victim of some unfairness or injustice. "If the department or authority concerned is acting reasonably, then, I am afraid I cannot assist the complainant." In about one third of cases the complaint is upheld and remedial action taken. Mr Johnson said unfairness or injustice comes in many forms. "It can involve the withholding or cancellation of leases, permits and benefits, delays in decision making, failure to enforce the law (especially Town Plans), evictions from Housing Commission accommodation, dismissal from employment, rudeness to the public, separation of parents from their children for welfare reasons, property resumptions for highways and • power lines, overcharging by council for rates and services, punishments in prisons, damage to goods carried by rail, incorrect awarding of tenders, mishandling of Workers' Compensation claims and so on. The list is endless." The ombudsman cannot investigate decisions of Cabinet or Ministers of the Crown, nor can he investigate matters in respect of which a convenient remedy is available by way of appeal to a court or some other tribunal. The idea of the Office of Ombudsman is to provide assistance when nothing else is available. All complaints must be made in writing to be given to Mr Albietz at the interview.

HINTON ON FAMILIAR GROUND WITH PIGLETS `Mother and 11 children were all doing well' .MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton is a "father" ... the mother and 11 "children" are doing well. The mother is a sow, Penelope, from Mr Hinton's piggery given to Yeppoon High School two months ago. And, last Friday she gave birth to 12 piglets ... one died on the weekend. The births, between midday and 2.15pm, were witnessed by most students and some teachers. Mr Hinton, a pig farmer, was on familiar ground when he visited Penelope and her family. Like an "old-hand" Mr Hinton checked to see the piglets had had their tails clipped, teeth ground down and their iron injections. After confirming these details had been carried out he said "it was obvious the piglets were in good hands and well looked after". From his own experiences with'pigs he told principal John Gregg it would be &good idea to give them some sulpher as a precaution against diseases. His checking of each piglet was met with deafening squeals but they didn't deter Mr Hinton from inspecting them. He used the opportunity to give some year nine animal husbandry and agricultural students handy hints in calming the piglets. . To highlight his point, Mr Hinton grabbed a piglet by its hind quarter and placed it in the palm of his hand, the upset piglet almost immediately stopped its piercing squeals. Mr Hinton said a sow usually reared a litter of 10 to 11 but an average litter was 9.5. The school was lucky enough to have slightly more than the average. The students on hand had the chance to see their State Member of Parliament in a different light ... as a knowledgeable, and successful, pig farmer. He told them that at birth, the piglets automatically initiated a system of hierarchy ... the bigger and stronger piglets dominate the the best feeding positions while the smaller and weaker ones have lesser positions. Mr Hinton said sows usually had about 14 teats but this could vary from 12'io 16. And, if a litter exceeds the number of teats, some of the piglets would starve.

Principal writes to Wanderers over criticism YEPPOON State High School principal John Gregg has written a letter to the Wanderers' Cricket Club regarding its umpire's criticism of the school's cricket facilities. Mr Gregg asked, "in the interests of responsible reporting" that the Capricorn Coast Mirror report on the school's point of view. His letter is addressed to Lew Cooper, and reads: I am enclosing a press clipping from our local newspaper (Capricorn Coast Mirror, issue 212). At your request, our school provided the use of its pitch, grounds and cricket equipment at short notice. We had to interrupt student athletics training for important trials at district and Central Queensland level. Our co-operation was provided willingly and without charge. At no time did we pretend that the facilities were other than schoolboy standard. It is disappointing in the extreme to find that in return for our co-operation we received nothing but unfavourable and uninformed criticism. J Gregg, Principal, Yeppoon State High School.

Umpire's views not shared. by Coast cricketers A FEW weeks ago the Capricorn Coast enjoyed a visit by the Wanderers' Cricket Club. They had two teams, one which played St Brendan's and the other team played a Rockhampton and District side at the Yeppoon State High School. I umpired the match at Yeppoon High with the Wanderers' umpire Joe Lambert. I would

like to draw attention to an article that appeared in the Capricorn Coast Mirror (issue 212) the following weekend with regard to the high school's cricket pitch. Mr Lambert's views were not the views shared by any members of the Capricorn Coast Cricket Club. I would like to point out that all astro-turf wickets used by third grade in Rockhampton are exactly the same length, although they are slightly wider. I would like to thank the Yeppoon High School for the use of the grounds and also extend apologies to the headmaster for any misconceptions which may have occurred. — Rick Robinson, Capricorn Coast Cricket Club secretary.

October 19 last day for Australia to refuse lease OCTOBER 19 this' year is the last day Australia has to refuse to renew the United States' lease on Pine Gap. The US nuclear facilitieswhich we host in this country have avery clear role in the preparation for, and conduct of, a nuclear war. In the past, one of the greatest hindrances to the Australian people being able to make an informed choice about whether or not bases such as Pine Gap, NW Cape, Nurrungar, Smithfield or the Watsonia spy network should continue to operate in this country, is the obsessive secrecy in which our government cloaks them and their operations. Pine Gap is run by three American Intelligence agencies: CIA, NSA and NRO. The Rhyolite satellite system which uses Pine Gap as a ground station, is capable of picking up a range of electronic signals from a large part of this globe. There is no question that much of this information can be used to undermine the sovereign rights of a range of independent countries, and to plan for and conduct war. Because these bases are not in the interests of the people of Australia, we ask the government to support the Foreign Bases (Pine Gap Base) Removal Bill 1987 read in Parliament by Senator Sanders for the Australian Democrats. — Mary Clarke, for Capricorn Coast Justice and Peace Group.

Cue says story, heading, missed significance .

MOST jobs are difficult and I know a reporter fmds its impossible to please everybody but the headline, "Councillors Calmly Vote Against Poll" and the account of the debate in last week's Mirror missed the significance of Cr Cresta's notice of motion. I believe it would be a considerable disservice to the urban ratepayers of the shire not to crystallise the facts relevant to the above motion. From the background information of Cr Cresta's motion,, published two weeks ago in the Mirror, and, of course supplied to councillors, we all understood why his proposal (to have a referendum which would ask the div 3 ratepayers if theywish to remain in Livingstone or merge with another shire with common interest) should at least have been investigated. Remember the budget debate when div 3 councillors claimed the rural divisions were subsidising divisions 1 and 2? Even though this claim was put without supporting evidence, the table, with the exception

of division 2 members, swallowed it! The net result — 5.5% rate increase to all urban ratepayers in the shire, no increase to the rural. For our September council meeting, Cr Cresta requested the shire accountant to furnish a brief report on div 3's contribution to the general fund and its expenditures. What did he report? * 1985-86, div 3 contributions $104,460. Council expenditures in div 3; $135,034. * 1986-87, div 3contributions $123,771. Council expenditures $144,742. Thus, in the past two years, the other divisions have picked up the div 3 tab to the tune of $51,545 and I believe this to be a conservative estimate. So, if you are wondering what the article, "Councillors Calmly Vote Against Poll" was all about, I hope it is clearer now as this letter is another of my attempts to prevent a similar situation occurring next budget. G C Cue (Councillor, division two, Livingstone Shire).

FINGERBOARDS POINT WAY FINGERBOARD signs will soon point the way to the Coast's many tourist attractions and public facilities. At this month's Livingstone Shire Council meeting it was decided to adopt a policy about fingerboard direction signs for organisations, tourist attractions and public facilities. White letters on a dark blue background will be used for public utilities and service signs but tourist signs will have white letters on a brown • background. Shire engineer Pat Murphy said any business or organisation wanting a sign should be told about the size, type, terms and conditions to own and erect one. Also, if a request for a sign involves the Main Roads Department, it will be referred back to the Main Roads district engineer. The cost to install signs will include the supply, freight and erection costs which is $20 on existing posts and $40 for new ones. The following policy, similar to Main Roads policy, is a guideline for businesses wanting finger signs. Public utility and service signs are to be made from 150mm or 200mm extrusions and are to consist of letters on a dark blue background. * Tourist signs are to be made from 150mm or 200nun extrusions and are to consist of white letters on a brown background. * Organisations wanting signs relating to tourist activities will pay council twice the cost of supply and erection to cover additional costs of maintenance for 10 years. * To ensure standardisation, council will order the signs and erect them to ensure proper placement. * Council will only consider the erection of tourist signs on main roads for the attractions

No to third jet ski business on GKI KEPPEL Island's Putney Beach already has two jet ski hire businesses and a third one won't be operating after council voted against giving it permission. Keppel Jet Ski services applied to operate in an area Gill's Ski Hire Service had been given approval in 1985 but the service was never licensed. Health surveyor John Harmsworth said it would be the third water sportshire service on Putney Beach. He said because there was a lack of space, "three services would be excessive". Keppel Jet Ski services was refused its application because two hire services are already operating off Putney Beach..

DOG REGULATIONS 'UNFAIR A WOMAN who has been holidaying on the Capricorn Coast for the past five or six years, and bringing her dog with her, believes Livingstone Shire Council's dog regulations are unfair. The woman, who asked to be identified only as Jean, said council's regulations outlined in last week's Capricorn Coast Mirror were not suitable for a tourist or holiday-maker's area. "Probably the council is worried about dogs polluting the beach but does the same council worry about the sewerage outfall at Emu Park on Fisherman's Beach?" she said. "The things you see floating about are not worth talking about ... and kids swim in it." Jean said she, and many people, regarded a dog as an extension of the family and took them on holidays for that reason. "You can't walk on the footpaths on the Coast because there aren't any so the only place left is the beach," she said. "What does it matter is a dog chases a few seagulls and has some fun as long as he returns to his owners when called. "I would say that sort of dog is under control." Jean said she had seen the dogs that were locked up in the pound and, as far as she was concerned, they usually looked well cared for. "If the council is really serious about catching stray dogs it should start its patrols at dusk

SANDSAILERS will be soon seen skimming across the Bluff beachfront after council permission was given for a hire service in the area. , Sand, Sail and Surf operators J and L Guhr wrote to council for permission to move their hire service from Bangalee to the Bluff rocks. Mr Guhr also offered his services as a beach marshall to ensure the beach was used correctly. He said he would make sure trail bikes, speeding traffic and unworthy road vehicles were dealt with. In agreeing to Mr Guhr's request, council said he could use the Bluff picnic area rocks. However he will not be allowed to increase the number of sand sailers and wind surfers without council approval-and, in his capacity as beach marshall, will be required to make a monthly report. Mr Guhr will be paid the same amount as his license fee and council can vary his conditions at any time.

and drive around at night picking up the dogs that are roaming free," she said. "Dogs that are cared for are home at night, protecting their premises and being fed ... it's the others that are left to roam that council should be after." Jean said she was worried about the fact that council said it would not release dogs from pounds that were not registered. She queried whether council recognised dogs registered by other councils ... "the same as a visitor is a member of the ambulance in their own district and can still receive free transport in other areas". As far as the $40 fee council demanded to release a registered dog, Jean said she thought it was "a bit stiff".

Third EP Lions Oktoberfest

Shop. 4, 26 James Street, Yeppoon

GERMAN Oktoberfest traditions will be brought to life at Emu Park on Saturday, October 24 from 10am to 10pm. It's the third festival held by the Emu Park Lions club and for the first time will have a Queen Quest competition and real German entertainment. Club spokesman Wolfgang Beilharz said the quest would be open to women between 16 and 25 years with one condition on entry. The condition requires all entrants to dress in some kind of German national dress. This was} to encourage a degree of uniformity and enhance the atmosphere. Mr Beilharz said first prize was a week for two at Bagara's Don Pancho Motel near Bundaberg with $200 spending money. The runner up will be given a $100 gift voucher. The entrance fee is $10 and nominations must be in by October 10. Mr Beilharz will give interested nominees the phone number of an Emu Park resident who will be able to help with the national dress. In addition to the quest, the festival will feature the Kalendar Band from Brisbane. It will be playing throughout the day. But the main attractions at Bell Park will be the German beer and food. Mr Beilharz said the club had improved facilities fonvisitors and there would be entertainment for young and old. Fingerwrestling should give the older spectators an idea of fighting with one finger and for the children there will be a tree full of goodies. Mr Beilharz said this year's festival should be the "best Oktoberfest ever".

I KNOW I have beenworking with computers foryears, but this new system we are using (which will really be great when we get used to it) has been causing me lots of headaches and eye-ache. If I have mispelt anyone's name, or neglected anything over the past month, that's why. Why aren't all keyboards made the same and then I wouldn't have to pick and peck. The command keys for going up and down and across are awkward to use and I keep pushing wrong buttons and getting wrong commands. 0 0 0

Dolphins down Bog Factory 7-4 DOLPHINS returned to form at Yeppoon Table Tennis Association'sfixtures played on Thursday, September 17, by defeating Bog Factory seven games to four. Greg Simpson was still too good for Joe Kruger because he won 2220 and 2114 in the first match played. Paul Watts caused an upset when he later ousted Greg in two games, 2110 and 2116. Peter Malick, number three for Dolphins, also played well to defeat his brotherNeil in the best of three games. His father, Mick, was in better form on the night and defeated Peter after three games. Mick also kept up all the way in his game against Joe, but finally went down 1821 and 1921 after some good play.

Joe and Paul had no trouble in downing Greg, and Mick in their first set of doubles, while Greg and Neil had just as easy a win over Joe and Peter in the second set. Dynamics scored a similar win by defeating their opponents, Marvels, 74. In the first match played, both number one players, Rob Green and Monica Christensen, fought over many points, but it was Rob's consistent pushing technique that decided the match and resulted in a close win for win, 2725, in the last of three games. John Gregg and Ross McDonald, filling in as second players for each team, played an evely contested match and with each game finishing 2119, John edged his way to victory. A busy Neil Malick, also filling in as Dynamics' number three player, defeated Peter Murphy in two straight sets. The first set of doubles could have gone either way but Dynamics' Rob and Ross won

2321. Monica and John won the next two games 2119. The second set wasn't quite as close because Rob and Neil won with scores of 2321, 621 and 2117. The season's last round of fixtures start on Thursday, October 1. Rockets v Bog Factory, Dynamics v Dolphins and Marvels have the bye.

Great sailing in 15 knot winds A 15 knot easterly breeze set the scene for a great day's sailing on Keppel Bay on Sunday. The "Arrow" class catamarans performed well in this wind and they left the Sharpie fleet behind on the long reaching legs. Ian Musker had "Super, Roo" going extra well to win convincingly from "Mrs S" (Richard Pratter) and - -

"Flyer" (Alan Croft) in third place. The first Sharpie home was "Three Fools Fumbling" (Barry Balchin)who found their old form to beat the rest of the sharpie fleet by 15 minutes and to take third place on the handicap. Competition in the Tasar class is very tight, but "Crusader" (Damien Stover) is still proving to be too fast, keeping "Celerity" (David Higgins) in second place, with "Whisper" (Kevin Hanly) much improved, finishing third. Results of heat one of the club championships. Division 1: line honours; Crusader, Celerity, Whisper. Handicap; Crusader, Celerity, Without Envy. Division 2: line honours; Super Roo, Mrs S, Flyer, handicap; Super Roo, Mrs S, Three Fools Fumbling. Sabots: line and handicap honours; Kamikaze (M Watson), Little Bits (J Little), Dotterel (D Little).

Disappointing response for junior side means cricketers field 2 teams CAPRICORN Coast Cricket club's fixtures started last-weekend in Rockhampton. Two teams have been nominated by the club for second and third grades. "Unfortunately, due to the lack of interest from the public, the club did not nominate any junior sides," club secretary Rick Robinson said. "We are disappointed with the response we had from the community, not only because the younger kids would not get the chance to play cricket in a major competition, but also the club needs these juniors to back up our senior sides." He said it was the Rockhampton Cricket Association's hope that Yeppoon would be able to produce the sixth team in the first grade competition within the next 3 to 4 years. "To do this we need juniors coming through the ranks now," he said. "At the end of the season it should be one of the club's prime objectives to try to promote and to encourage the establishment of junior teams, otherwise the prospects of this club becoming a major force within the cricketing circles are very bleak." The second graders started the season on a high note last weekend in Rockhampton when they met last year's premiers, Frenchville, at the cricket ground. Jeff Ingle was selected as captain for the team. He lost the toss and the Coast were sent into bat. Coast were in a strong position by the end of the day, with the score 4 for 195. A good first wicket partnership of 69 by Steve

Pidcock 21 and Dennis Kolega 46 paved the way for the other batsmen. Jeff Ingle made 20, Brendan Fleetwood 13 and Keith Semmber was unbeaten. on 23. Newcomer to the team this year, Adrian Smith, debuted with a fine half-centuary score, being unbeaten on 51. Captain Jeff Ingle said they would be looking for quick runs today (Saturday) in order to make a declaration after about an hour. In third grade, Coast played Parkana at Victoria Park in Rockhampton. Captain Rick Robinson won the toss and sent Parkana in to bat. Parkana was dismissed for 243 runs. Don Letchford took 2 for 37 from 12 overs; Ron Mackie 2 for 26 from 10; Jason Dawes 1 for 32 from 12; Arthur Sorenson 1 for 25 from 8 and Rick Robinson 1 for 26 from 4. This year's third grade are basically younger then the previous year's team. Captain Rick Robinsonwas impressed with their enthusiasm and he looks forward to be associated with the team in the next few monthsr—A— The team will start its run with the bat today (Saturday) when the games resume at 12.45pm. Club officials remind all team members that training times are at 430pm on Tuesday and Thursdays at the Yeppoon High School and all new members are welcome. Rick Robinson said all players under the age of 18 would be required to obtain parental permission to play in the second third grade game which will be against Etna Creek at Etna Creek.

Are you

*** SAME bloke, a bit later, in same argument ... second bloke said the wind was going to force jumbo jets to make their landing approach above Yeppoon. First bloke said wind would mostly mean planes landed from other direction. Second bloke said he'd lived there 110 years and knew which way the wind blew ... and it wasn't that way. First bloke, again with perfect squelch, said: "How come the trees all lean in one direction?" *** REMEMBER last week the item about the 17-year-old who said "employ an adult now, while they know nothing". Well, a reader (how's that, a genuine reader) wrote this week to say that when Mark Twain, the creator of Tom Sawyer, was 17 he wondered why his mother had married such an obviously unintelligent man. When he became 21, Mark Twain said then that he was astounded at how much his father had managed to learn during the previous four years!!! *** INSIDE this issue, there are two letters to the editor complaining about criticism levelled at Yeppoon High School's cricket pitch by visiting Wanderers' Cricket Club umpire Joe Lambert. Mr Lambert .(and, obviously, the Mirror) made what could be a fatal error in this town ... criticism. The fact that Mr Lambert is a fully qualified cricket umpire; that he seems to know what he's talking about, and the fact (fact) that he did not criticise but actually offered advice, has escaped the writers. Mr Lambert said the cricket pitch was "illegal". He was careful to say (and the Mirror was careful to report) that he was offering "advice" ... not criticising. According to him, the pitch is too narrow; the run-ups should be concrete so that bowlers do not roll their ankleswhen delivering the ball; and the stumps,were the wrong type because of their metal tip:.' a agraph said: He wasn't critical of the present pitch. He said he realised they cost money but he wanted to make sure that school officials understood the pitch was illegal. Note the careful wording ... and still he got slanuted. Another paragraph said: So, cricket enthusiasts looking for a project could take Mr. Lambert's advice and start fund-raising for the school's pitch. Now, with criticism levelled at the man who gave the advice, there's not likely to be a rush of public-spirited, sportsmen and women trying to do something about the fact (fact) that their sons could roll their ankles when delivering a ball on the pitch. No, Yeppoon has done it again. Someone has dared to point out what is normal elsewhere and has felt the lash of "thanks". "Old Baldy," who wrote the original article, would like to point out that 29 years ago, when he was playing 4th grade cricket for his high school in Sydney, he played on nothing but turf. No concrete, no astro-turf, no matting ... proper turf wickets. And so did the other high school from 4th grade and upward. Players reach 4th grade in high school cricket around the age of 13. The school had concrete wickets in the nets ... but all matches were on turf. Nearly 30 years 'later, is it too much for Yeppoon's young cricketers to expect a proper, "legal" wicket? •** READ an item this week about Premier's son John Bjelke-Petersen who announced his engagement. At the end of the story, John said his fiancee would learn to handle the glare of publicity ... "she will just have to bare (sic) it." Could be the wedding of the year!!!
