Minister returns 3 firemen: Neal, Hinton combine to end fire trial YEPPOON Fire Brigade again has its full complement of four professional fire-fighters. After three' weeks of public fighting, the battle was won when Don Neal, the Minister responsible for Fire Services, told a meeting at Bayview Tower last Thursday night he was ending the "trial" and was returning the three firemen lost to Rockhampton. His decision met a mixed reception. There was a sigh of relief from the Coast's representatives_ and arguments from Rockhampton Fire Board representatives. The Minister stood firm. He- made his decision in public; stuck to it at a later, hastily convened meeting which went well past Midnight, then, when asked whether he had backed down after that second meeting, said: "I -do 't go back on my word." goon Fire Brigade "upgradeThe whole .downgrade" issue was a triumph.for the Coast ... but not one to be gloated over. Points brought out during the special meeting -"4"1- on Thursdaynight*both sides, show that firefightingis a seriouSbusindS'and not a topic for point-scoring. For Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton, the whole exercise was a "blooding". He may well be fighting for Beyfield National Park, he maywell be fighting for the bent wing bats at Mt Etna arid he may well be fighting Premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen ... but on Thursday night he was fighting foiTeppoon. He can only gain from the exercise. He admitted at the meeting that he had made a mistake referring to the loss of three firemen and gaining of apart-time one as an "upgrade" ... and he fdught tenaciously to have them returned. He had ,started backing down on the fire brigade issue almost as soon as he announced the three firemen were being transferred to RockhamptOn. Public opinion was against that move. .• Just threes-months earlier the same move had been suggested and Mr Hinton had fought it 4,0E, at that time, there was no public announcement that an extra man would be brought. toYeppoon from Rockhampton to fight' fires during the day. Last month, when Mr Hinton announced the "upgrade," it was the extra fireman during the day that made him regard the new arrangements as better for the town. Figures showed "" there were a lot of grass fires during the day ... but there were equally impressive figures showing there were far more fires involving property damage at night. Mr Hinton startedworking behind the scenes to have something done about getting the'original fire protection (four full-time fire-fighters) seturned to Yeppoon. He arranged for Administrative Services Minister. Don Neal to make a special visit to Yeppoon to hear the public's concern. Everyone in the room last Thursday night was given the chance to say their piece. It was not an

Coast unites to win back what had been lost By John and Suzy Watson FOR the Coast representatives, tht,-[::eturn of the firemen was heady stuff. In just three weeks. a concerted public effort won back what had been lost. Concerned Coast residents, standing up for what they believed, were rewarded. They faced stiff opposition ... and stiff questioning. Only two Yeppoon fire auxiliaries, Neil Shillington and Lester Findlay, had anything to do with fire-fighting. None of the rest of the Coast representatives were even remotely connected with fire fighting. But they went into battle feeling they had "right" on their side and. united, could face any "might". They said their piece; asked questions ... answered questions. And they won (with a lot of help from Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton and Minister Don Neal). Now that's it's over, let's hope Yeppoon does not face a similar battle in the future. Yeppoon is growing. The whole Coast is growing. We don't want to take anything from another area ... we just want what is rightly ours ... and protection from fire is not too much to ask. A lot was said at the meeting on Thursday night about "people wanting lower taxes but 0 CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

Maurie Webb congratulates all involved in 'downgrade' battle CONGRATULATIONS are due to all those who took part in the discussions last Thursday night on fire brigade manning. Commonsense prevailed and Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton's move on bringing Fire Services Minister Don Neal was spot on. The decision to bring the men back was quick and decisive with their re-start last Sunday. This community owes an enormous debt to

Coast was not asking for more firemen — just its 3 returned El CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 wanting more services". Yeppoon was not asking for more ... the service that returned to us last Sunday has been ours for the past 40 years. We just wanted to keep it. Denis Hinton led the fight ... he was ably backed up by Margaret Malinconico; Ross Dickson, Neil Shillington, Lester Findlay, Cr Barbara Wildin ... and the 1074 Coast residents who went into battle with,their pens and signed a petition. The one casualty is Maurie Webb, the former State Government appointee to the fire board. He resigned from the board over the decision to remove the three firemen. He said at the time' he did not want that decision on his conscience, even though he had voted against it. He stood up for the Coast ... and lost his seat on the board doing it! The Mirror thanks everyone who supported the fight ... we have won some praise for our effort but we did not seek it. It was a clear-cut issue that had to be fought. If you want to thank us, support everyone who advertises in the Capricorn Coast Mirror ... they make the paper possible!

John and Suzy Watson who ran with the story and presented those editorials. Margaret Malinconico's foray into public action was tremendous, together with that from the community who helped. The representatives of the auxiliary staff apparently handled themselves well with much of the result attributed to them. It is to be hoped that this is the end of the matter and the spectre of the removal of permanent staff does not rear its ahead again. Towards that end, could we have a local committee set up similar to the ambulance with voluntary members. In that way we would have people looking after this essential service completely in touch with the local scene. As a previous member of the board, I kept repeating that what was good for other centres would not work here. This area is unique with tremendous variations in population and a dormitory area for many hundreds of boarding school children. As their number decreased, other segments of the population exploded with visitors. I will miss the Fire Brigade Board, even though the remuneration only extended to S5G a month for meetings attended. Here is one qanao member who never made a fortune out of it° , but who rather saw it as another vehicle for assisting my community. The results of my action in resigning make one feel very happy indeed. — Maurie Webb, 38 Cliff Street, Yeppoon.

Emergency 000 phone number now on Coast TRIPLE ZERO (000),the service to call during an emergency, is now available to most Livingstone Shire residents. Telecom district manager Marshall Allan said Bungundarra, Byfield, Cooberrie, Emu Park, Marlborough, Rossmoya, The Caves, Tungumull and Yeppoon areas all now had access to the emergency 000 number. The 000 service enables people calling from these areas to make a free call, at any time, to contact police, fire and ambulance services. However Mr Allan said if people had access to a private phone, and knew the particular number for the service they required, it would save valuable time if they used the number directly. Mr Allan said it eliminated the need for the second party, the operator, to dial the required telephone number. "In a publicphone booth, it is easier to use the 000 service because no money is required to dial and coins were often not available in such situations," Mr Allan said. "The 000 faciity should only be used in an emergeny, when the caller can't contact the emergency service, or has forgotten the number," Mr Allan said. "It is an excellent service for people who don't know the phone number of their local emergency authorities. "They must remember, if using the service, to give the emergency location and service needed."

YOUNGS OPENING OFFICE YOUNGS Buses will soon be operating from the old Peter Vamvakaris Real Estate office. Phil Young said the family had bought the real estate premises to improve the bus service. "We plan to use the office to service the Capricorn Coast," he said. "The new, improved service will be for both passengers and anyone sending items by freight. "The building is still being upgraded and it will be a couple of weeks before the work is fmished." Youngs started buying the office two months ago but settlement wasn't finalised until last

week. However until work is finished, it is business as usual with services departing and arriving outside the Strand Hotel. Mr Young said no plans had been made to alter the service in the immediate future, but a long-term plan was being organised to change times and bus stops. He said if any changes were made it would firstly involve the public. "Anyone is welcome to phone us and give us preferred times for services and bus stops because they will all be taken into consideration for future changes," Mr Young said.

THE retrieval of banned pesticides in Central Queensland region is ready to move into full swing. The banned pesticides from the Organochlorine group have caused unacceptable levels of chemical residues in livestock. Ross Lobegeiger of the Queensland Department of Primary Industries and co-ordinator for this region's programme, said the scheme was designed around voluntary surrender of banned chemicals. He said its success depended on the support of landholders, shire and city councils, and industry organisations. The situation with each area in the region has. been assessed on an individual council basis. Mr Lobegeiger said council support had been good. DPI staff, and in some shires BSES staff, would work closely with the council receival staff during the programme. These district committees would play a key role in the smooth intake of chemicals. • Mr Lobegeiger said the receival programmes would vary from shire to shire and landholders were encouraged to contact their council office of local DPI to arrange delivery of chemicals. Receival hours and contact people are advertised in the Capricorn Coast Mirror's Public Notice section this week. He said the safe tranport, receival and storage of banned chemicals was the most important part of the programme. Unlabelled containers should be treated as a hazardous chemical. Gloves and protective clothing should be used to avoid contamination. Where dry chemicals were dusty, a respirator should be used. Landholders should advise the council of the type and quantity of chemical they wish to deliver. If there is concern about the condition of a container, for example, rusty or leaking containers, arrangements should be made with the council to collect a safe container for transport of the chemical. These included 20, 60 and 205 litre drums and plastic bags for the powder chemicals. If landholders had large supplies of any of the chemicals, they should contact-their local district organising committee before it was moved. Mr Lobegeiger said the QDPI had prepared a leaflet which outlined the retrieval policy and listed a wide range of common or trade names for the Orgainichlorifies-cmetrffed -- ''"'""""-••-• Landholders can obtain these leaflets from either their local DPI office or council. Mr Lobegeiger said councils would appreciate it if landholders could deliver their chemicals quickly because this would provide less inconvenience to their normal operations. He said councils had indicated they would like to receive the chemical before the end of November.

Meals-on-wheels needs assistance



MEALS-on-wheels urgently needs drivers and assistants to deliver meals to the aged and infirm in Yeppoon. Volunteers are needed for one and a half hours a fortnight or one and a half hours a month. The organisation has sufficient volunteers for meal preparation and washing up but lack enough volunteers for delivery of the meals. Twenty-eight meals are delivered Monday to Friday every week of the year by Yeppoon Meals-on-wheels to the aged and infirm. For 15 years Coast residents have answered the call for volunteers and organiser Frank Mortensen hopes that they will yet again answer this urgent call for help. The service works on a five day monthly roster with a captain in charge of each day. "We prefer people to, go in pairs, one driver and the other an assistant, but at the moment we have been forced to send people out on their own," Mr Mortensen said. "This isn't an ideal situation because sometimes the aged and infirm people need some assistance." Contact Frank Mortensen, 39 2477 in the morning or 39 1320 afternoons if you are able to assist.

Talent on stage MORE than 30 entries have been received for the great Kavlon Talent Challenge tonight, (Saturday). Entries closed on Wednesday but were still being submitted late that afternoon. All entrants will be trying for the S500 first prize. Kavlon spokesman Kevin Baglow said singers, poets, mimics, dancers, a ventriloquist and a bush band were already on the list of entries. Entry was extended until Wednesday to give competitors more time to get their acts together. A newly-formed cinema club is organising the programme to help raise funds to get rarelyseen films.

YEPPOON State High School sent 33 students and two teachers to a Yamaha music festival on Saturday. The concert band competed against 16 other schools from throughout Queensland and Northern New South Wales. Music instructor Greg Carter said only 10 points had separated first place from last place. He said the school wasn't placed in the first three positions but was confident they were about the middle.

However he won't know the official position until the adjudicators' forms are sent to the school. "The concert band played above its best ability and deserves congratulations," Mr Carter said. He said the school had decided at the end of 1986 to enter the band. It had been practising for two sessions a week since January. One piece, "Ceremony," by Frank Erikson,

'Window Repairs or Replacement

was set but the other, popular '80s song "Sara", was chosen by the band. The group left last Wednesday to get in some rehearsals and sight-seeing before the competition on Saturday. The band returned on Sunday all set to perform at the school's presentation night on Tuesday. The band took a total of 10 flutes, nine clarinets, four saxaphones, two trumpets, a trombone, a French horn and four percussion instruments to Brisbane.

PLEASE allow me the opportunity to correct some of Cr Giorgi's misconceptions. If Cr Giorgi's meeting attendances were as prompt as her letter to the editor, I feel certain her knowledge on the water issue would be updated. Firstly, no sensible person is suggesting that council can read all the meters on one day ... that's why council has asked for one week's grace in which to do this. As for being cheated ... yes, I stand firmly by what I said re the resolution being devious, and I challenge the shire clerk to prove me wrong. Time will tell.

YEPPOON State High School completed this year's round of secondary school speech nights on Tuesday. Students, family and friends filled the Yeppoon Town Hall. Special guests included Regional Director of Education Len Roles, Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton and Cr Brian Dorey. All presented prizes to students. Dux of the school depends upon the result of the TE scores which come out at the end of the year but junior school Dux was Gavin Bolton. Special sporting prizes were awarded to Kendall George for cross-country runner of the year, Gerrard Gosens for sportsmanship and Bo George Sportsperson of the year. Distinctions and commendation in sports and service were also awarded. Christopher Gratton and Anthony Kelly were awarded distinctions for drama. Leigh Bignell, Julie-Ann Clarke, Robert Clay and Hilary Bolton were awarded distinctions for senior debating while Sandra Arnold, Mark Stickley and Sera-Jane Bergman were awarded

Cr Giorgi is very fortunate to receive a notice on her readings, because no-one in the Parkhurst/Caves area received one this year, nor the people I've spoken with on the Coast. Doesn't that seem a little strange? How then are we to calculate, and detect possible errors on the charge unless we: one, ring the clerk for the readings (I can visualise a very busy switchoperator) or two, receive the accounts in the first place. Now, four and a half months since meters were read and still no accounts, one wonders just what is going on down there. I have never complained about the 520K1 allocation, but seeing Cr Giorgi likes to quote figures, I have a few of my own. • Contrary to Cr Giorgi's assumption, we don't have the highest allocation in Australia.. Townsville receives 776K1, and Mt Isa 14501(1, just to name two. But Mackay offers one of the best water deals in the state ... 300K1'allocation at 5112 yearly (that's 37c Kl) and excess at

22cKl. That's a very attractive scheme, only the user pays, and ratepayers would certainly come off a lot better ... financially. Readers might be interested to know that the finance section of the Local Government Department's statistical survey in April '87, showed that the Capricorn Coast water charges were the twelfth most expensive out of the 134 Queensland shires. Interesting isn't it? If Cr Giorgi is bored by council's adverse publicity, I can only assume she has little regard for ratepayers who are disadvantaged by council's inability to abide by its own by-laws, as well as the Local Government Act. This is the whole crux of the problems incurred, and council is only reaping what it has sown. Under these circumstances I don't think the people mind being told when they've been "had" - whatever tne issue. It teaches them to be on the alert. Cicero said: "The good of the people is the chief law" and I couldn't agree more. Yes, I'll excuse your pun Cr Giorgi ... but just remember, that people who throw mud, lose ground. -- Glenda Mather, PO Box 5186, Rockhampton Mail Centre.

No overhead wiring please I HAVE been a supporter of Yeppoon all my life. I consider its natural scenic beauty equal to many parts of the world. Whether I favour or disfavour the four-lane street on Farnborough Road is immaterial. The fact is it is a reality. We know the road is to be first class. The area most desirable to be in this category is the street lighting with its method of construction. As a tourist road on display to the Prime Minister down, let us have underground power without any hideous overhead wires thereby creating an atmosphere of modern appearance, not a country hick. It would, in my opinion, be a retrograde step if overhead wiring were allowed. — F A Evans, 106 Farnborough Road, '" •Yepipoon."

Yeppoon Rotary fighting diseases YEPPOON'S Rotary and Rotaract Club have joined a world-wide attempt to eradicate polio, measles, diphtheria, tuberculosis, tetanus and whooping cough by 2000. It is called the PolioPlus campaign. In 1986, Rotary International pledged to immunise the world's children against polio and the other deadly diseases. The Yeppoon Rotary club plans to hold weekly raffles at the Flea Market on Saturday mornings and any funds raised will go toward the world-wide movement. Rotary pledged to provide all the polio vac-

cines necessary for five years for any approved national or regional immunisation programme. This includes volunteering time to deliver and promote the club's goal of eradication. It is a mammoth task the Rotarians have taken on ... they need to raise about $120 million. Yeppoon will do its bit by holding its weekly raffles but donations will also be accepted. Donations can be dropped off on Saturdays or can be given to Rotary secretary Arthur Holt at the Yeppoon ANZ Bank, or the PolioPlus committee chairman Dave Hutton.

Coastal charities receive $100,000 benefit from Saturday flea markets COASTAL charities and service clubs have benefited from the Yeppoon Charity Market to the tune of $100,000. This massive milestone was passed this year after about 11 years of operation. Market treasurer Bruce Barnett said Jim Stephens came up with the brain child to hold the market and with committee members the late Matron Gus Moore MBE and Ritchie Robertson opened for service in 1976. The market was first located in Queen Street adjacent to Savemore Centre. Mr Barnett said "from these minor beginnings it has progressed to a weekly Saturday morning affair in the Yeppoon Showground and raises about $600 to $700 each week". Brendan and Pam Williams

Many organisations, including the Returned Service League and Rotary, take advantage of the market to help raise funds for clubs or other charities. "The market is not only a shopping outlet for Coast people but also many visitors," he said. "In fact, a survey showed about 28 per cent of market shoppers were from outside the coastal region." The market is now raising about $300 to $400 from stall rentals and almost all money raised goes toward projects undertaken by the market committee. In the past two years about $50,000 has been given to Coast projects, including $24,000 to the QATB to buy a four-wheel-drive ambu- • lance; $3000 to the Capricorn Coast Blue Nursing Service for car running expenses; $5000 to the Coast, $10,000 helped the RSL extend its facilities; $4200 to Yeppoon Surf Life Savers to buy new surf rescue equipment. Mr Barnett said many smaller amounts had gone to Coast schools, Red Cross, meals-onwheels, Legacy, CWA and Salvation Army, to name a few". The market will now look to raising funds to refurbish the CWA hall, which is expected to cost about $8000, and will be completed around December. Mr Barnett said during the bicentennial year the market would fund a new pavillion for the Yeppoon Show Society. "Continual support for the market stall holders will ensure the Saturday morning fundraiser will be able to carry on assisting Coast character and service organisations," Mr Barnett said.

Govt subsidises fitness course A TRAINING scheme aimed at helping businesses improve and update their skills and knowledge has paid off for one Capricorn. Coast woman. Bakehouse Gym's Roxanne O'Keeffe was this week presented with a cheque which subsidised costs involved in attending courses to improve her expertise as a fitness instructor and leader. In June and July this year Mrs O'Keeffe attended a course at the Rockhampton Institute of Advanced Education designed to develop her skills and train her in the latest technology. Mrs O'Keeffe said the course she had attended not only improved her knowledge but also provided a recognised certificate that a number of Australian gymnasiums require. Two Coast people went to the clinic which was attended by people from as far north as Cairns and from Gympie in the south. It involved an in-depth theory course plus a section for practical work. Mrs O'Keeffe said she first heard about this course eight months ago when attending an aerobics seminar. Having passed the course, Mrs O'Keeffe is eligible to apply for further specialised seminars to further her knowledge or to pursue a particular interest in fitness and health. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton presented Mrs O'Keeffe with a 5569.50 cheque to assist with course costs and travel expenses. • He said the assistance was "a Queensland Government initiative to assist local firms to become more profitable and thus contribute to economic development". Funding was provided by the State under the Key Personnel retraining Scheme which provides up to $3000 on a 50 per cent subsidy basis to cover actual costs and retraining in small to medum sized firms. Mrs O'Keeffe said the course gave her new information about current fitness techniques. "This course has to be renewed every three years in order to keep up with changing technolog," she said.

Coast ALP has petition for Bayfield Park ALARMED at Premier Joh BjelkePetersen's announcement, the Capricorn Coast branch of the ALP is circulating a petition to be presented to the Queensland Parliament. "It is vital that there be an immediate declaration of Stage 1 of the Bayfield National Park," branch president and spokesman David Timbs said. "Evidence which has come to light supports our view that the Premier and his Cabinet have, for a long time now, been conspiring to hand over a large tract of very valuable land to the Iwasaki interests and we call on the Government to reject all plans for an Environmental Park controlled by a foreign national. "There is now widespread support for the declaration of the Bayfield National Park and strong opposition to the recent negotiations of the Premier and his proposals to blatantly circumvent the provisions of the Iwasaki Act 1978," he said. "The Premier and his supporters have brushed aside the ineffective Member for Broadsound in their aim at giving Mr Iwasaki trusteeship and total control of the area cover: ing the proposed National Park. That plan must now be strenuously opposed," he said.

Ar/i ABOVE: The Emu Park and Yeppoon Nursing mothers associations enjoyed a trio/7i* at Bayview Tower as part of Breast Feed Awareness celebrations. A raffle was organised for the morning and the lucky winner, Jenny Suchy with daughter Cleo eight months, is pictured in the middles with Emu Park resident Diana O'Regan on left and Yeppoon group leader Janet Walter on right. CAPRICORN Coast residents have dug deep again for the annual Adventist Appeal and organisers thank you all from the bottom of their hearts. In 1985 the Coast gave S2002, 1986 S2517 and this year $2600. The appeal was started in this community in 1957 and organisers aimed for 85 pounds (I can't find the pound sign on thispewfangled machine) ... translated into today's money (not worth) $170. The money is collected to be used for development projects in the South Pacific. There are no administrative costs deducted and all collectors are volunteers. S2 donation can provide dressings and medications for a clinic; S5 can finance an injection; S10 can assist with student school books; $20 can clothe an orphan; S100 can supply a medical patrol; S250 can finance a mercy flight. Donations last year, total Australia-wide, was S1.2 million and the money was used to equip and sustain two hospitals, 38 dispensaries-clinics, two training colleges, 15 high schools and 186 primary schools, mercy flights have provided care and saved lives. The money is channelled through Adventist Development and Relief Agency which is affiliated with the United Nations and helps all people in the South Pacific, regardless of colour, race or creed. Each year'the Coast Adventist Church looks at how much the volunteers need to collect to keep ahead of inflation and this year they were in excess of the nominated figure ($2500). They received three individual amounts of S100 and last year there was one of S200.

Mariners and Tony's BYO, locked tgether now for two weeks, are each on 50 points, with Strugglers third on 41 and Mighty Macks set to take the fourth spot in 27 points. Anyone For Tennis on 22 and Frontliners on 20 face impossible tasks. Good performances this week came from Judy Umlauft with a win in five from Chris Callard, a win in four for Briam Umlauft against Peter Gordon, Len Keily's convincing win against Peder Dale and the fine performance by reserve Anthony Trump from B2 to force Ray Campbell to five. Gordon Roberts showed persistence, taking the second game from Tony Smith but was still

a game short to force a count of points for Mighty Macks. Tony's BYO defeated Mighty Macks two rubbers each, eight games to seven: Len Kelly def Peder Dale 3-0; reserve Anthony Trump v Ray Campbell 2-3; reserve Ian Atkinson v Neil Roberts 0-3; Tony Smith def Gordon Roberts 3-1.

Crunch game ends L'Amour's wins L'AMOUR'S string of wins came to an end on Monday night in the crunch game for a place in Yeppoon Amateur Basketball Association's grand final this weekend. Player coach Gayle Lorraway (16) couldn't lift the girls' play to the sparkle of previous weeks. The team also had top rebounder Trudie Evans (17) in foul trouble. L'Amour needed Seagulls to make errors so

Junior cricket SACRED Heart Koalas and Yeppoon Colts are now equal second on the Capricorn Coast Junior Cricket competition points ladder with 18 each. Points leader is Cavaliers with 20 and Emu Park Aussies is eight. The teams in the points table are year six and seven boys from Coast schools. The junior teams in the competition are year four and five. In that section, Koalas defeated Cavaliers at Barmaryee 106 to 48. Brian Barry and Craig Newberry were best batsmen for Koalas with 25 runs not out and A Swayn took two wickets for no runs. Ryan Scarlett was Cavaliers best batsman with nine runs and Ryan Duckwitz took one wicket for three runs. Emu Park Lions defeated Colts at the Emu Park School 155 runs to 64. Jason Purton was 27 not out for Lions and Cody Harris took one wicket for six runs. Chris Smith andwas best batsman with 21 not out and Mark Benson took one for seven. In the senior games Cavaliers defeated Koalas at Farnborough 82 runs to 32. Matthew Duckwitz hit 21 runs while Troy Pinkerton and Scott Leslie were best bowlers for Cavaliers with three for three and four for 10 respectively. John Cranny hit 14 runs for Koalas and Rene Pedersen took two wickets for eight runs. Colts defeated Aussies at Yeppoon Primary School 123 runs to 49. Shane Franke hit 20 runs and Steven Halloran took four wickets for 12 runs for Colts. Kristian Brinkley top scored for Aussies with 20 runs and Matthew Wex took three wickets for 15 runs.

they could stay in the game, but JOanne Taylor (19) rebounded strongly and controlled the offence. Mary Gatly (19) seemed capable of sinking baskets from anywhere and Seagulls had the game in control for the last 10 minutes. Underdogs Scoobs, for a time had some pressure on Saints who last week just failed to secure the easy road to the final by two points. With five players this week to keep the defence busy, Carrot Campbell dominated the boards and his personal 40 points were achieved with less than outstanding shooting percentage. Nick Basham played well but had a quieter than usual game ... his 15 points put the nails in Scoobs coffin. Scoobs top scorer from last week, Mike George, was pegged back by a knee injury, but Danny Curtis and Ken Dooley put in a respectable 15 between them. Nicky Walls' (12) efforts at both ends of the court were insufficient to keep Pink Galahs from the Sunday game. Sandy Groves (17) and Megan Anderson (14) headed up the Galahs healthy score. Yeppoon basketball's big day is tomorrow (Sunday) ... grand final day at the Cooee Bay Recreation Council stadium. The all day games will-finish with A grade events in the afternoon. Guest referees from Rockhampton will give players a new experience. Rocket star, prop Abram and coach Cory Munson will be among spectators for the day's events. Limited seating is available and spectators are advised to arrive early to obtain a seat. Presentations will take place after the grand finals at Cooee Park, near the Olympic Pool. An informal competition will continue until December on Monday and Wednesday nights. Existing junior and senior players and teams can take part and should advice the committee if they are going to do so. Prospective players are invited to take this chance to play and meet teams. "Just let the stewards know at one of the night games." Monday, November 9 draw: 6pm, Wanderers v Mixed Nuts; 7pm, La Wetz v Iw; 8pm, Nomads v Billabongs; 9pm, Cobras v Tigas.

Winner of five games, with an aggregate of 70, was the team of Jack Tennent (Rockhampton), Ivy Cooper (Emu Park), Kerry De Graaf, May Hobkirk, Errol Ward (YIBC) and Edna Witt (Rockhampton).

ABOVE: Yeppoon Tae Kwon Do fighters (from left) Jim Vearing, Ross Lapanne, Ron Coyle, Rod Allwood (instnictor), Steve Garvie and Robert Everinghanz show the winning style which netted three trophies during the recent semi-contact controlled cornpeition at Blackwater.

THREE WINS IN TAE KWON DO THREE Capricorn Coast Tae Kwon Do won trophies at their first competition held on the weekend at Black-water. Sixty fighters from around Central Queensland including nine from Yeppoon and others from Mackay, Glenden, Tieri, Rockhampton and Clermont converged on Black-water for the semi-contact controlled competition. Coast instructor, 2nd Dan black belt Rod Allwood, said he wasn't able to compete because he was needed as an umpire with the two other Central Queensland 2nd Dan black belt instructors. He said the efforts by the Coast fighters were commendable, with three winning places. ' Ross Lapanne won the yellow llelt green tip; Ron Coyle was runner-up in brown belt and Jim

Vearing was also runner-up in the blue belt patterns competition. Mr Allwood also coaches in Rockhampton and six of those students also competed at Black-water. Theywere also successful, winning six trophies between them. Mr Allwood said the Yeppoon group now planned to hold its own Tae Kwon Do competition on the Coast early next year, to give people learning the art more experience at competition levels. Those who competed at Black-water said it was a worthwhile experience to compete. It helped to improve style and technique. Mr Allwood said a team would now be chosen from Central Queensland-to -compete--4n-the Northern Queensland titles later this year.

CAPRICORN Coast Cricket Club second grade players were sent into to bat on a damp wicket at Kalka Shades a fortnight ago and were all out for 38. Only Dennis Kolega and Ken Ogilvie reached double figures of 15 and 12 respectively. Southside United was then bowled out for 87. Wayne Kitchener took three for 34 from 13, Ian Anderson three for 18 from eight and Jeff Ingle one for four from one. Ken Ogilvie was Coast's man of the match. On the weekend, Coast second grade skipper Jeff Ingle won his first toss of the season and sent Easts into bat. "Easts' players were lucky to reach 224 when some drop catches should have had them out a lot more cheaply," Capricorn Coast Cricket Club secretary Rick Robinson said. The consistent Wayne Kitchener took five for 79 from 29 overs and captain Jeff Ingle took one -morms-11

The Rockhampton team made a massive 367 runs for the loss of only three wickets.

Coast, in reply, is one for 73 with Darren Petterwood making 43. Not out batsmen are Dale Wetzler on 10 and Bill Cox on one. The game will continue today (Saturday) at the Saleyards cricket ground.

ALWAYS reckon there's more to read in the classifieds than meets the eye ... and this week is no exception. There's an unusual advertisement inside this week under the classification of Public Notices with a rather large heading ... Wanted to buy back. The advertiser wants to buy back two small, irridescent orange glass (Carnival Glass) dishes sold at the Great State Fete white elephant stall. They have considerable sentimental value and are part of a set. They were accidently given to the stall. Anyone who bought the items are asked to phone 39 2281. Please do so ... it would be a shame to break up a set. *** THEN there's a For Sale item ... "Young duck and Whirlpool Washer for sale". Now that reminds me of a relative. This is, like every item, dead-set true. My cousin is a journalist and she was so engrossed in the industry she married a journalist. Now, both being A grade journalists wasn't enough ... they wanted freedom. So they bought a farm way out in the back blocks of the Dandenongs and used to commute to and from their jobs in Melbourne by company car (provided by a very well known newspaper baron). Anyway, they decided the way to freedom was through ducks and they started raising them in vast numbers. They used to buy them at the markets in the lunch break, store them (loose) in the company car (parked in the shade) until work finished, then drive them to the farm where they set them free. Now, the day came when they sold some of them and, of course, the client wanted them plucked .and dressed. The le journalist decided this was his job and, ra r than do the job the usual way, thought thing .uld be speeded up by using technology. He kiiUed the ducks, drained and cleaned them ... th brought the dead ducks into the house put them in the automatic washing machine. He turned it on for a full rycle and figured that, feathers being feathers, they'd see the writing on the wall and leave the duck. He was right ... they did. Out came the cleanest ducks in the Dandenongs (perhaps slightly bruised but, after all, they were dead). Anyway, his wife was tickled pink (pun intended) and they set off the next day with dressed dead ducks and picked up their money. Some days later, being prosperous farmers now, they decided to have a night on the town. The male journalist put on his underpants and so on, and headed off for a great night with his wife. During the night, he started to get itchy ... real itchy. He became so itchy it was embarrassing. They left early, went home, and he scratched endlessly until he took off his underpants. Then he discovered the problem ... they had just been washed and were full of duck down. Apparently he'd cleaned out the big feathers, but the rest, "well, it'll come out in the wash". It did, for weeks and weeks. They sold the washing machine ... quite cheaply!!! BY the way, the female in the above item used to bring the ducks into the house when it snowed because she reckoned it was too cold for them outside. Visiting their home was an experience!!! *** THERE was a fun night at the Pacific Hotel on Monday and, for some reason, a group of people started putting up their hands. Anyway, during the course of the evening, one patron got rather excited and his stool, joining in the excitement, went its own way. Down went the patron ... mates, always mates, laughed like hell. Patron, not wanting to cause concern, quickly raised his hand to signify he had survived the dismounting ... and for some reasons he suddenly owed S300. Luckily, (or unluckily, depends of what goods he had raised his hands on) someone else raised their hands and the fun moved on!!!
