New-look Savemore reopens on Tuesday THE new-look Savemore Centre will open on Tuesday, December 1, . at a cost to Denhams Bros. Ltd of almost $5 million. Denham Bros. Ltd managing diector Ron Smyth said the date had `"-'been something to aim at when renovations started in June and now, months later, work would be completed on schedule. Final cost to Denhams was unknown this week, but Mr Smyth said "there wouldn't be much change out of S5 million". The months of work have been a major topic of conversation on the Coast and the shopping public will get its chance to see the result on Tuesday from 8.30am. It will be an impressive shopping centre. Despite the scaffolding, the building materials, the tools, the tradesmen, the noise and the dust, the new look has been showing through. The malls are the most impressive. There's new floor tiles, new, soft lighting, warm, inviting colours on the ceiling and a feeling of class. This isn't a cold, clinical shopping centre designed to separate shoppers from their dollars. Savemore is charming and inviting. As the work has progressed, enthusiasm has grown. Grumbles about noise have been replaced with comments on the interior touches ... the colour scheme and the skylight. The skylight is a natural addition to a tropical shopping centre. The blue of the sky complements the autumn tones in the shopping mall. While Savemore has only been renovated and extended, there is a efinite new look to the whole complex. There's more parking on three sides of the complex ... twice as much with 222 spaces within the grounds and a further 39 outside. And shoppers can drive in on one side, and around the carpark and out the other side. "There's no more reversing or fiddling around," Mr Smyth said. "Shoppers can drive around until they find the spot they want." There's three entrances and a new mall ... a bigger supermarket and a total of 26 specialty shops and a bank inside. The enlarged complex has something to crow about ... it's the biggest of the 16 Denhams centres. And, being the biggest, it also represents an impressive slice of the

public company's investment dollar. To extend Savemore, Denhams had to buy it back. The company had earlier sold the complex and become a tenant in the centre it developed. When it wanted to extend, it had to buy it back. The freehold complex was then renovated and modified to its present state.

This latest development is proof of Denhams' commitment to the Capricorn Coast. Mr Smyth this week paid tribute to the Denhams board of directors for their faith in both the Coast and the Savemore complex. He said buying back Savemore was a big step ... but there were distinct as flexible as we like," he said.

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council will have postal ballots in all divisions. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said he was assured last week by Local Government Minister Russ Hinze, in answer to a question in State Parliament, that there would be no opposition to the council's request for postal ballots in next year's shire election. Council had requested intervention by Mr Hinton, following a refusal by the Department of Local Government to allow postal balloting in Divisions one and two, which includes Emu Park and Yeppoon. "I was pleased to intervene and get an assur-

* ABOVE: The pictured backhoe was digging a drain that will take stormwater away from the new 4 lane road. Main roads is using 825min diameter dual pipes.

THE Bluff section of the new four-lane high—N.... way was bitumened and sealed last week bringing the construction one step closer to completion. Main Roads Department liaison officer Peter Evans said traffic was expected to start using the road section around the Bluff this week. A special bitumen spray and sealing gang was used to carry out the finishing touches to the upper two lanes around the Bluff. Trafficwill be shifted to these two lanes while gangs begin work on the seaside lanes. Before the bitumen could be sprayed it had to be heated to 170 degrees celcius. Bitumen spray foreman Cliffy Warkill said at high temperatures, the thermo-plastic type substance becomes like water. "It is sprayed onto the ground and when it cools becomes a sticky substance," Mr Warkill said. A screening of stones, roughly the same sizes, cover the sticky bitumen. These stones set as the bitumen hardens completing the road construction. In other constructions on the four-lane highwayworkmen have been putting drains through to the beach at the northern end of the job. Mr Evans said some sections used 61m of .dual pipes 825mm thick. Livingstone Shire council workers have also been busy working with the road works. The council'sworkers have been employed to do the kerbing and channelling. Like so much of the road construction, specialist Main Roads gangs onlywork on the fou43 lane highwayfor the length of time it takes to do their specific job. It may mean one week at the Coast or two months. Every gang that is used has a foreman with years' experience in the particular field. Bitumen Spray foremen Cliffy Warkill started out on the back of the bitumen sprayer in 1954. He was promoted to driving sprayers but has been seven years as foreman. On another section of the road construction specialist paving foreman Kev Sutherland has spent about 20 years working with Main Roads as a paver. Mr Sutherland, like Mr Warkill, oversees his gang but answers to a foreman in charge of the whole job. A vibrating roller compacts 125 cubic metres of loose crushed rock every hour. This machine is used during the paving process. Mr Sutherland said the roller compacts the rock. Following the vibrater is a multi-tyred roller which seals the top off. Liaison officer Peter Evans said to run all the equipment, plus pay wages to the different gangs used, totals about S150,000 monthly. The cost would be more with the paving crew. However, Mr Evans said the crews were needed to ensure the job was correctly completed. Mr Evans said the four-lane highway was running to schedule. Workers will start on the sea-side road around the Bluff when traffic is using the completed sections.

ance from the minister because postal voting is a desirable method of balloting in a communi where there is a high proportion of senib—, citizens who may be stressed and inconvenienced by visiting ballot boxes, and as a result, may not vote," Mr Hinton said. He said he was also concerned that local authorities should make their own decisions in these matters without interference from State Government. "I commend the Minister on his decision announced in State Parliament."

ALP objects... CAPRICORN Coast ALP spokesman David Timbs objected this week to State Government interference in the 1988 Livingstone Shire Council elections. "I strongly object to the interference of Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. There is no justifiable reason why the shire elections should not be conducted in the open, particularly in the urban divisions," Mr Timbs said. "The Local Government Department ruled against postal voting and it was arrogant and high-handed of Mr Hinton to interfere. What's wrong with accepting the umpire's decision? "What vested interest is council seeking to serve by restricting the election to postal voting only?" He said he believed an open election was best for residents and ratepayers. The aged or injured who need a postal vote would be eligible to apply. "I am appalled at the State Government r41) in this decision. If council really wanted wide participation they should be moving to have all meetings open to the public and media." He said that council should, as far as possible, be conducting meetings in the evenings to enable more residents and ratepayers to stand for council or at least observe what was going

CitiMotors and COUNCIL PROVIDING 60 DAYS FOR NEW PLAN Mirror provide car for prize! THIS MINI Clubman could be yours on Christmas Eve ... if you shop locally. Yeppoon resident Bill Ward, principal of CitiMotors, Rockhampton, has joined with the Capricorn Coast Mirror in providing a guessing competition prize well worth winning. Tickets are available free from every Mirror advertiser. All you have to do is fill in the missing letters on the entry form and take the completed form to the Annual Ambulance Fair in Beaman Park any night until Christmas Eve. Although the entry forms are free, entrants are asked to donate S1 to the ambulance for every five tickets put in the barrel at the Ambulance Fair. Both CitiMotors and the Mirror felt the Mini Clubman provided a perfect opportunity for the Ambulance to raise much needed funds. The idea for the guessing competition came about late last year when the Capricorn Coast took part in a late-night shopping experiment. The Mirror saw that late-night shopping, and the Ambulance Fair, needed' promotion. Accordingly, Bill Ward of CitiMotors was approached to provide a prize that would ensure sustained interest from Coast residents. Anyone can give away a new car ... but a fully restored Mini Clubman is something else. Mr Ward knew what he was looking for and, when the right car came along, he put it aside for restoration. The combined efforts of CitiMotors, Keppel Bay Motors and Greg Simpson of Yeppoon Panel and Paint returned the Mini Clubman to showroom condition. Its condition is a credit to the tradesmen involved in the restoration work. Yeppoon Panel and Paint's repaint in the original Lime Green, using a special two-pack process, is probably better than the original paint job. The car will be on show throughout Yeppoon from December 1 until Christmas Eve and, for people who wish to put their name in the barrel on the spot, ambulance volunteers will have special entry forms available at Si each. Of course, by shopping locally, every Coast resident -can enter for 20 per cent of that cost! A copy of the entry form to watch for is printed on page 7. Shop locally and you win every time ... especially when you can win a Mini.

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council will allow viewing of the Shire Strategic Plan for twice the recommended length of time. The 60 days set aside for individuals and organisations will give them time to study the document. Shire chairman CrJohn Bowen said during the viewing period people could arrange meetings with council to discuss sections of the plan and put forward any suggestions or amendments. "The document is a people's document and

any amendments or additions individuals and organisations can suggest will be appreciated," CrBowen said. At the November council meeting it was resolved that a information-sharing seminar midway through the public advertising period was a good idea. It accepted the offer of a seminar to enable council to clarifyvarious aspects of the document and to address concerns and questions. Council also intends to hold a series of educa-

tional seminars after the document's gazettal. Shire clerk Jim Brown said the series were expected to establish a better understanding of procedures and to improve the level of communication between clients, consultants and council. Cr Bowen said the Local Government Department was reviewing the plan now and had to OK the document before it could go on public display. When it does go up for public preview it would be for twice the recommended 30-day period.

* ABOVE: Les Lawson sings the re-dedication song during the Yeppoon Seventh Day Adventist's special ceremony on Sunday afternoon. The church has been extensively renovated and the congregation organised a re-dedication service.

Adventists rededicate church THE Seventh-Day Adventists re-dedicated their church on Sunday after 18 months of extensions and renovations. The church was built in 1956. Some original members were on hand to witness Sunday's rededication ceremony. Arthur Lawn and Lou Knight were at the first dedication. They joined Les Lawson (who was also involved with the first ceremony) and a filled church to celebrate. Voluntary labour and many hours of work was spent in giving the church a new face and landscaping the church entrance.

Yeppoon pastor Neil MarkS described the volunteers' work as "a real team effort". "It took a few months to complete but we finished the job," he said. Visiting Pastor David Lawson said the efforts of the Yeppoon church had been commendable. "Eight Seventh Day Adventist churches needed help funding renovations or building but Yeppoon people showed they wanted the funding by starting late last year," he said. "It meant the council was able to help the Yeppoon people reach their goal." In an address to the congregation he congratualed parishoners for their efforts.

Reader prefers local shopping MAY I add my bit to the Yeppoon versus Rockhampton shopping saga. I prefer to shop locally as it is nice to be called by one's name and I have always found the shopkeepers friendly and helpful, except for two whom I found grumpy. Perhaps the disgruntled shoppers should examine their own attitude to shop assistants ... a friendly word and a smile at the check-out always brings a response. There is certainly a need for a variety type store in Yeppoon where one can buy cheap children's clothes, underclothes and household linen. A shopping trip can be made quite pleasant when one meets people to chat to and there are many good places to have lunch with a friend. -- Jean Preston, 3 Stevenson Street, Yeppoon.

Can't agree about attitude RE: N Richard's letter November 21 to November 27. I couldn't agree more with his complaint about the double parking of trucks in the business sector of Yeppoon, but cannot agree with his comment on the attitude of the young people at the check-out points in the larger retail outlets. Over the several years that we have been shopping in Yeppoon, we have had nothing but helpfulness and courtesy from them and generally a cheerful farewell word. — Gordon MacKenzie, 37 Jarman Street, Yeppoon.

Rowe replies to Cr Cue YOUR October 31 issue carried comments attributed to (Cr) Geoffrey Cue concerning unprofessional advice being given to people seeking council approval of their subdivision applications. Well, perhaps Mr Cue was misquoted, misunderstood, confused or perhaps he is still unaware of the provisions of the Local Government Act. The fact is that council does not have to refer subdivision applications of recommendations to the Local Government Department. Council is required to decide subdivision applications within 40 days from the date of receipt of the application or alternatively seek an extension of time for approval from the minister. The situation is slightly different with applications for town planning consent or rezonings.

However, the 27 months taken by this council to agree to support one rezoning application makes a mockery of the requirements of the Local Government Act. Three things are clear from your article: 1. The admission that Livingstone Shire Council is spending excessive amounts of ratepayer's money on town planning matters and that 2. This council iS procrastinating and impeding development 3. Contrary to Cr Giorgi'sApril '85 statement that "the shire did not need a shire planner because there was enough expertise on the new council", it would now appear that the true value of professional advice is at last being acknowledged. The Commission of Inquiry into matters concerning Livingstone Shire Council acknowledged th6 "incredible situation of a councillor who supported the resolution without - he could not possibly have been in the situation of really understanding what the matters were about and it was not only Mr McDonald that was in this position". Crs Cue, Giorgi and Cresta were mentioned in particular. The ratepayers simply cannot afford to condone the continuing abuse by some councillors of the Local Government Act and their own bylaws. The lead up to the council election next March will provide the opportunity to examine just what is going on at present behind closed doors. — Tony Rowe, PO Box 445, Yeppoon.

Coast parallel in TV report THE Willesee Report on the bank employees who claimed mistreatment by their employers has a perfect parallel in our own community. Tony Rowe was falsely accused, forced (by council) to engage legal counsel, and cleared of any wrongdoing. In fact, Judge Gibney's report stated `his,cledication, loyalty and integrity were beyond question.' No apology was ever forthcoming from any of the seven councillors concerned, and Tony was ultimately sacked for 'incompatibility'. He appealed to the Local Government Appeal Board, which in a three to nil vote upheld his appeal, and ordered his reinstatement. The majority of councillors, who had by then been joined by John Bowen, voted not to reinstate, and therefore you, the ratepayers, were required to pay compensation. The whole issue cost Tony his career and his livelihood. It cost the ratepayers of this shire in the order of 5270,000. The councillors responsible did not pay the legal costs, nor the compensation. The ratepayers paid. Judge Gibney, in his report, stated 'there is a cogent body of evidence which suggests that there was in effect a vendetta conducted against Mr Rowe by some of the Councillors'. The ratepayers of this shire paid for the result of that vendetta. -- Carol Rowe, PO Box 445, Yeppoon.

Rules ground congratulations CONGRATULATIONS to all those concerned with the development of the Aussie Rules field and the achievement of getting a Government grant. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton has played his part well and my club supporters (Rugby League) know that he will pursue similar grants later on for them. As far as the rules field is concerned I can remember trying to convince a local official and some Rocky people about the possibilities of the present location for their code. It would seem at that time that they believed I was trying to sell them a pup. Sure, the fill from the Bluff was a catalyst, but the emergence of the league ground on Tanby Road is the result of community help and support, particularly those people with machinery. Hopefully, in the next week or so the rugby league field on Tanby Road will get a top surface as a•result of council support. With grass planted and rain appearing as often as it has been lately, games would be played there next season. The rugby league field is emerging as a result of continued effort and a fair bit of community support on the cheap ... we can do things together. Some people might question the need for separate fields for different codes. The people concerned in football promotions are not just one-eyed supporters of their own particular code. They are proving a need now and into the future. The proximity of fields to the town centre will be critical as Yeppoon blossoms into the big future ahead. Maurie Webb, 38 Cliff Street, Yeppoon.

Thanks for aid Rare tree at with footy field Joskeleigh I WOULD like to express my thanks through your column to the following people for doing so much to enable the Australian footy oval to be built in Yeppoon. Livingstone Shire Council in particular has done an enormous amount for the club and special thanks go to chairman Cr John Bowen, engineers Peter Harbeck and Steve Connors also the surveyors, draftsmen and council employees involved with the project. Together with Col Huntly, for supplying his machines to the council at a discount rate, and Goldings for supplying their dozer for fuel and labour for two days over the weekend. A special thank you to Des Hallam for his donation of a dozer, for the fuel that is used. Put all this together and the club has achieved what was nearly impossible to get ... the new oval. And this includes the contribution of Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton for being able to secure a Government grant on our behalf. To all these people a big thank you for all that has been done. -- Ross Mclndoe, Old Rockhampton Road, Yeppoon.

SOME time back I read a report in the Mirror that there were only two known occurences in Australia of the Heron Island Argusia tree (Taurnesortia Argenta), one at the Bluff in Yeppoon and one at Mackay. Recently I was bushwalking with some friends at Joskeleigh and came across one of these rare Heron Island Argusia trees on the beachfront. It was about three metres high and in bloom. As this tree is of great interest, I decided to write to the Mirror to correct the record. N Pegg, Hughes Street, Yeppoon.

which had not gone ahead, and you state that the gravel stockpiled for me was still there. All these facts are wrong and I would like to clarify the matter. When the Keppel Sands roads were done last year I asked permission to stockpile enough gravel for the base level of a road to be constructed through a sub-division on Pumpkin Creek. This permission was granted. The council thought it such a good idea that they stockpiled another pile for themselves. Council intended to use its gravel to cover the Keppel Sands dump, which in fact it has been doing. Inadvertently, however, they used the gravel I had paid for. Now I really don't see why I should contribute gravel to the Keppel Sands dump. Therefore I asked for a refund of the money I had paid, producing the relevant proof of payment. So, as recommended, it was perfectly fair that I was repaid that money. It was not true that the gravel was still there. It was on the garbage dump. The roadworks are going ahead now. I find it extremely irritating, as I am sure most other developers do, whn people say "her" road. Maybe technically at the moment it is still "my" road, but the moment the plans are sealed it becomes the property of the shire. The shire also receives rates from the blocks created and the village eventually has another 20 or 30 families which it needs. In the Pumpkin Creek sub-division the shire also received the land upon which the Pumpkin Creek Boat Ramp stands, plus about 514,000 towards Limpus Avenue and a parks contribution. If the gravel were still there we could use it on the road next to the jetties. As it is, we are having to bring it in from miles away at a much greater cost. — Cr Ann Giorgi, Keppel Sands, Yeppoon.

700 HOURS WENT INTO HUGE BICENTENARY MURAL PROJECT SEVEN hundred hours, 12 painters and heaps of patience has paid off for Capricorn Coast Society of Arts' members who finished their contribution to next year's bicentenary. The society members have used a series of paintings making up a mural to depict life in Livingstone Shire in its first years and in modern day. The mural will hang in the Yeppoon Town Hall's foyer in full view of everyone entering the hall. The members worked out they had spent 700 hours designing, sketching, preparing, painting and mounting the pictures in readi-

ness for hanging. No one member can claim sole credit for working on individual pieces. Society member Marie Bayliss said four to five people had worked on each painting. One of the first problems the members had to tackle was the mural's design. Limited in area and length, the members had to hit upon a theme which would suit the area but also give a broad outline of shire life. Art society member Charlie Alderdice designed the mural and members decided to paint specific features of history and modernday living in the shire. One part of the mural show the shire's early


days of cattle grazing. The modern version shows a view of pastoral life in the '80s. Staggered above the stairs in the upper half of the foyer will be pictorials representing facets of life in the shire. Agriculture is on one panel. Sugar, pineapples and citrus all feature. Military involved during the wars and present day military excercises in the shire get another panel. The old steam engine, coach and bullock represent history on the transport panel while version of modern vehicles air transport fill the top half. Fishing with the old casting net sits under

the modern version of trawlers. Mining also has its place in the art society's mural. Gold helped settle the area, and coal and chrysophase still contribute to the economy. The forestry has played an important role from logging earlier on in the shire's history to modern nurseries in the Byfield district. The society finds commerce a major contributing factor. The old travelling salesman and wagon would feel out of place in today's society of business. Sport and recreation completes the 'old and new' mural. An attempt- has been made to include all modern-day sports and a computer adds to the modern-day depiction. There is another part to the mural; one showing Captain James Cook in Keppel Bay and what was here at the time with an equivalent picture showing the process of modernisation. Mrs Bayliss said special oil colours were bought to ensure the pictures had a long life. The mural will be officially unvieled on Friday, January 1.

$2000 cheque to coastguard KEPPEL Sands Coast Guard received a cheque for $2,054.08 from Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton to assist in their operations. "The Australian Volunteer Coastguard does a tremendous job in helping the boating public, but much of their work could be avoided if adequate safety measures are taken," Mr Hinton said. "Each year the Queensland Government provides nearly half a million dollars in subsidies to Queensland's volunteer boating rescue operations." He said that these rescue operations played an efficient role in helping boat owners in distress, however many accidents and breakdowns could be avoided. "The work of these organisations is completelyvoluntary and that they must exist financially on the money they raise and the subsidies they receive from the State Government," Mr Hinton said.

Coast ALP branch getting ready for early 'crisis' State election CAPRICORN Coast ALP Branch has responded to the current political climate with plans to hold a special meeting to prepare for an early election. "The National Party Government is now so crisis-ridden it cannot survive the next two years," branch president David Timbs said. "Quite obviously Sir Joh will be replaced by Mr Ahern. In a party where half the politicians are hoping to be discovered and the others are afraid they will be, Mr Ahern is alleged to be a man of integrity. If that's the case he is, in the National Party, in a class of his own," Mr Timbs said.

He felt the new Premier would be looking for an early mandate. The election, he said , will probably be around mid-1988 in the bicentennial year among the excitement of EXPO and before the Government is forced to implement fair electoral boundaries. "The ALP is preparing for Government and marginal seats such as Broadsound will be vital to our success," he said. The meeting will be held at the Pacific Hotel on Monday, November 30, at 8pm. "We would like all members and supporters to attend."

Concern over development DEVELOPMENT to a zoned recreation land has caused concern for some Capricorn Coast residents living in the area. The residents' complain building up the grounds will only hinder, and not help, serious drainage problems. Judy and Ron Heslin said they were all for recreation grounds but not when it added to the area's problems. Charles Street and some surrounding Streets are part of the Fig Tree Creek surge area which in wet weather is prone to flooding. In past years the water has had the advantage of natural swamp drainage areas but developing the light industrial has closed off one source of drainage. It is 17 years since Judy and Ron Heslin bought a house in Charles Street. The Heslins said they knew then the area was flood prone but it didn't worry them because of the number of natural paths the water could follow to drain away. However, in the 17 years, the area surrounding Charles and Burnett Streets and Tanby Road have been developed.and built above the high tide mark. Mr Heslin said "this left an eight-foot wide creek to cope with a large area of storm-water drainage". Mrs Heslin said "it's like a big whirlpool". They claim the built up areas around them have left the residents in a type of valley where the water had no-where to drain. Assistant shire engineer Peter Harbeck said council was aware of the problems involving the whole Fig Tree catchment area. Council had employed consulting engineers to investigate the problem and find possible solutions. Mr Harbeck said there were future plans to carry out work in the area to alleviate its drainage problem. However, he assured residents the new recreation ground would not be built above the high tide mark. He said it was built at the mark so that during normal tidal patterns the salt waterwouldn't fill the land and kill grass growth but during cyclonic weather nothing would stop the area from flooding. Mr Harbeck said once the land was developed it would service the Yeppoon Aussie Rules Club and Coast schools.

Caloundra builder for Coast units CONTRACTS have been let for the construction of eight new pensioner units in William Street, Yeppoon, at a cost of 5218,342. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton was advised by Works and Housing Minister Ivan Gibbs, that the units will be of two storey brick veneer construction, bedsitter accommodation. The work will be carried out by Hope Construction Pty Ltd of Caloundra and Mr Hinton said it will generate about 120 man weeks of direct employment. "The units were being constructed as a result of calls I have received from senior citizens needing low rental housing,and it is a fact that the need for such accommodation is acute, and of great concern to me. "The new units will be well placed in William Street, as it is easy walking distance to the shopping area."

Night trading will be highlight of pre-Christmas shopping rush NIGHT trading will be one of the highlights of Christmas shopping at the new-look Savemore Centre. Stores will open until 9pm on those critical days just before Christmaswhen time is starting to run out and there's still so much to buy. For at least four days December 18, 21, 22 and 23 — the centre will attract night shoppers with its parking, lighting and air-conditioning ... and variety! Also, probably in the New Year, Denhams will be applying for permanent night trading on Fridays. Managing director • Ron Smyth said there would not be time before Christmas, but the company had plans to move for permanent night trading in the New Year. Friday night is the most popular choice for Denhams because there has been so much publicity about such a move in the past. The night seems to be the best for a Coastal area such as Yeppoon because the area attracts people for weekends. Night shopping on Fridays could also provide a boost from Rockhampton shoppers who, it is felt, could find the idea of a night at the Coast attractive ... especially after a week's work and with the weekend ahead. Until such application can be made, Mr Smyth said Denhams would be opening in accordance with existing trading hours conditions.

ABOVE: Kerrie Pengilly is one of the many cheery faces to be found in Denhams Supermarket.

DENHAM'S Yeppoon manager Ron Iafrati came to the Coast three years ago and has built his family home here using only local tradesman. Mr Iafrati said he preferred to buy locally and encouraged family and friends to do so. He believes the service Denhams provided could only be best judged by the people who shopped at the centre. "If they have a genuine complaint I would like to hear about it so I can fix it if possible," Mr

Iafrati said. "Customer feedback is the only way to change or alter our service or line of goods offered." Mr Iafrati is familiar with Denhams service having worked with them for the past 10 years. He likes working at Yeppoon and said the supermarket understood it had a responsibility to fulfill the needs on the Coast. "If a product is unavailable on the Coast, tell us and we will do everything we can to make it part of our stocks," he said. "How else are we

supposed to find out the town's needs?" Mr Iafrati said he had faith in Coast people and businesses and automatically turned to them when he needed to buy goods. "My house was built by locals, painted by locals. I employed a local plumber and the electrical products all came from local people," Mr Iafrati said. He said he set an example to his staff, family and friends by putting his faith in local people and their products.

Supermarket has to perform if it expects to attract Coast shoppers DENHAMS SUPERMARKET has to perform if it expects to bring in the shoppers ... that's the way company managing director Ron Smyth and supermarket manager Ron Iafrati feel. They don't expect people to flock to the supermarket just because it's bigger and better ... "we have to give the people what they want if we're going to be successful," they said. "We have to perform." Both, in separate interviews, said they wanted to hear from customers. They want feed-back. If there are complaints, they want to hear them. "Wewant everyone to shop here andwe want this supermarket to be a drawcard. We can only do that if we know exactly what customers want," they said. Mr Iafrati said, as manager, he felt a personal responsibility to the Coast. His store was the only supermarket on the Coast and it had to provide "everything". "I don't care what it is ... if customers want a particular line I'll find it, and I'll stock it," he said. "There are basic lines that all businesses carry, including Denhams, but not everybody shops for basics. "There are a l'ot of lines that afen't fastmoving but, in their own way, they're very popular. "We already carry a lot of them, following requests from customers, but there must be more. If we are told what they are, we'll look for them." Mr Iafrati said the supermarket already had a wider variety of Continental lines than other Denhams stores because there had been a

But attracting shoppers is not all lines on shelves ... convenience is also important. Mt Iafrati said the supermarket extensions had allowed more space to be devoted to certain areas so that shoppers didn't feel like they were driving dodgems when they pushed their trolleys around.

Gadabouts new name for women's wear

A fresh start every day for Morgans hot bread, cakes

DENISES Resort Wear in Savemore Centre has been given a new face, and a new name, as part of the Savemore renovations. Proprietor Sylvia Bongers said the shop, which would cater for all ages from teenagers t o mature women, would be renamed Gadabouts. Mrs Bongers said the shop wouldn't be shifting to the newly built sections in the Savemore Centre. "We decided to redecorate the existing shop with new paintwork and carpet to suit the new decor," Mrs Bongers said. "It will be a small but select shop for women to buy something nice," Mrs Bongers said. There is already a wide range of clothing in the store — swimwear, sportswear, mix'n'match and Ken Don clothes — designed to suit the teenage buyer through to the more mature buyers. A wide range of accessories, including jewellery, belts and scarves, can also be bought. Staff includes Mrs Bongers, her daughter-inlaw Moya Bongers, and Jan Cruickshank.

REFRIGERATED display units will showoff the tempting array Morgans Bakery will be baking every day of the week. Tortes, morning tea lines, fresh cream cakes and a variety of other sweets, breads and rolls will be displayed at its relocated site in the new section of Savemore Centre. Principal Bing Morgan said there would be a larger area for customer comfort and selection. "There is also a side access and close-by parking for weekend trading when the whole centre isn't open," Mr Morgan said. The Morgans already have eight staff in their Savemore bakery and have installed new machinery to add to efficiency. "We'll be looking at introducing more lines after we've settled in with the expanded Savemore complex," he said. Morgans Bakery celebrated its 10th anniversary in May. From a husband and wife team in one shop, the business has become a family concern with son Marshall and his wife, Wendy. Mr Morgan took over the Savemore hot bread shop in 1977 and two years later he expanded and bought a factory in McBean Street. The Morgans also now own a major retail outlet in William Street, Rockhampton. Mr Morgan has had 30 years' experience as a baker and pastrycook while Marshall left a job in the bank to join the business in 1980. He has since completed his trade as a baker and pastrycook. Mrs Morgan helps out at the Savemore shop while Wendy works with accounts at the McBean Street factory.

Gifts, jewellery ideas for all DAVID and Jean McLean bought Savemore Centre's Capricorn Gifts two-and-a-half years ago and are looking forward to the opening of the redeveloped section. Their giftshop offers all gift lines and jewellery. Mr McLean said the shop aimed at attracting everyone shopping in the centre by providing an attractive store full of gift ideas. "We stock a large range of gifts from jewellery, crystal and novel gift ideas. The giftshop also has a range of cards and paper. There are gift ideas ideal to suit all ages and at a variety of prices. "We hope the Centre's renovations will make a big improvement in trading," Mr McLean said.

AT LEFT: Bing and Marshall Morgan gave their new electric sign a final polish watched by Bing's wife Peg (left) and Marshall's wife Wendy (right) before returning to the daily routine of baking.

ROCKMANS SHOWS COAST CAN GET BIG NAMES ROCKMANS' move to Savemore shows the Capricorn Coast has potential to attract the big name retailers. Savemore is Rockmans' 120th retail shop in Queensland and New South Wales. The clothes on display at Savemore will reflect the smart casual style worn on the Coast. Rockmans opened its first clothing shop in

1927 .-.. 50 years later it's still expanding. The 120 stores in the Rockmans chain are spread about Queensland and New South Wales offering customers a varity of fashion clothing and accessories. Rockmans will be located in the new section of the Savemore Centre development. Two people have been employed. One will be

a staff member alreadyworking in the chain and she will have an assistant. The store is designed to attract women of all ages. It will have a wide range of clothing varying in style and size. Besides clothing, the store will have a range of jewellery, hair care products and sunglasses on sale.

A ONE-STOP travel agency is how John Murphy describes his business which has moved to Savemore. Yeppoon Travel is designed to help organise a person's every need while travelling; arranging transport, tours and sorting out any other problems. Mr Murphy will manage the business, son Sean is a consultant and Tony Perkins the overseas consultant. The agency has accreditations with Avis and can hire-out cars, trucks, four-wheel drives and even buses. Ansett, Australian Airlines, East West Airlines and all other domestic flights can be arranged from the agency. Mr Murphy said all buses including McCafferty's, Greyhound, Ansett Pioneer, Deluxe and Sunliner can be booked. The travel agency also books connections with all other interstate and State services. For the first time in its 15-years in business, travellers can also book train trips through the agency. The agency's list of services extend to bookings for the Pilbeam Theatre and cruise boats. It is also an agency for the Teachers' Credit Union. Mr Murphy opened the agency in 1972. "It started as part of a Golden Casket and toy shop," he said. "Three years ago the business had grown to a point where it deserved its own premises. "We moved to a shop in James Street and are now relocating to the former Sun'N'Fun Newsagency premises." Mr Murphy described the travel agency as a one-stop shopping place now conveniently situated in Savemore Centre. It will be open each weekday from 8.30am until the Savemore Centre closes. It will close at 12.30pm on Saturdays.

Twice as much display area in Murph's store THERE would be no more ardent fan of the Savemore expansion than John Bretz of Murphs Sight'N'Sound ... for the past eight years he has been trying to move into a larger shop. The redevelopment gave Mr Bretz the chance to expand his business into a shop twice the size of his old one. He said it would give both the customers and himself more room and a wider variety of stock. For the first time he and co-owner Doug Cuddy are offering Tandy Electronics products. This means customers will have the choice of buying about 3500 different items stocked by more than 10,000 stores around the world. "We can't display all the products but if customers see something they like in the Tandy catalogue, we can order it," Mr Bretz said. "It can be here within 48 hours." • Tandy has more than 350 dealers Australiawide. It offers a multitude of products including antennas, TVs, radios, short-wave receivers, magnetic tapes, speakers, turntables, security devices, public address systems, telephones and intercoms and toys. Tandy owns and operates nearly 30 factories and employs about 5500 people. Mr Bretz said any gear sold through his store could also be serviced at the shop. "We will also deliver if needed," he said. Doug Cuddy and John Bretz first opened Murphs Sight 'N' Sound in 1976 and were one of Savemore Centre's original tenants. They already owned a Cuddy and Bretz store in Yeppoon at the time and had to look for a new name. They had employed a man to work in the store. His name was Bill Murphy and they decided to name the shop after him. At the time of opening their Savemore outlet, together Mr Cuddy and Mr Bretz had 26 years' retail experience between them. More than a decade later, their knowledge'of

Watching is Doug Cuddy (left) and Jolzn Bretz. the industry has grown to include computers. Mr Bretz had worked for Chandlers and was once a manager in the Willian Street shop. Mr Cuddys' experience goes back 30 years. They joined forces in 1971 and opened their first electrical store in Musgrave Street. They expanded into East Street and also had shops in Blackwater and Gladstone. "We opened a branch on the Coast becausewe believed a shop of this type was needed," Mr Bretz said. "We also believe in dealing locally. The new shop has been painted, outfitted and wired by local people. "Where-ever possible we have used local people."

First customer back once again DOUG Cuddy and John Bretz opened their first store together on April 13, 1971, in Musgrave Street, North Rockhampton. They were hardly knocked over in the rush when they 'opened their doors. As Doug Cuddy said this week, "it was rather quiet". While Doug andJohn were dusting and re-dusting their stock, Bob and Vera Walters paused in front of the window. They hesitated, then walked in. They were looking for fluorescent lights. "We didn't have any in stock," Doug said. "But I knew where we could see some on display ... at the GEC showrooms. I drove them there,

they saw what they wanted ... and they also bought an elevated electric range and a deep freeze." The Walters were given invoice number 1. A fortnight ago, when John Bretz moved Sound into the new SaveMurph's Sight more premises, he had barely opened the doors before he had his first customer ... Bob Walters and his wife, plus daughter Norma. They bought a video recorder ... and were the first recorded sale in the new shop! "I'd like to thank them for shopping locally." Doug Cuddy said, who happened to be on hand when the sale was made.

SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN SANTA CLAUS is coming to town on Tuesday, December 1, and is making his home in the air-conditioned comfort of the new-lool Savemore Shopping Centre. He made a surprise appearance earlier this week to lend a handwith renovations. Sweating profusely in his North Pole garb, he grabbed a jack-hammer and posed for the photograph on the cover of this feature. He had a quick look around the complex, liked what he

saw, and vowed to be back on Tuesday to greet shoppers and their children. Santa will be working a four-hour day, over six days of theweek. He will arrive daily at 10am and Ho Ho around the complex until 2pm. He will be available for those cherished photographs with the children and, for those tentative tots, he will have a bag of sweets to break the ice.

Because ybut home is a constantly appreciating asset, it's the centre of your fatnily wealth. So you should use it to grow even more wealthy and more secure. Which is precisely why we've developed the Home Asset Management Plan. First, you need a home. Home Asset Management begins with a National Australia Bank home loan. One with repayments that suit your income. Working together we establish your financial credentials and from then on financial freedom is achievable. Then we'll help you protect your home. Home Asset Management Plan provides protection for your new asset in the form of insurance through the National Australia Bank Group. Our Homesafe, Loansafe and Mortgagesafe policies are competitive, convenient and absolutely rock solid. A Car Loan, Multi-Purpose Loan or Home Improvement Loan perhaps? Through Home Asset Management you will have established your financial credibility. So getting a loan for any purpose, such as a car, or home improvement, usually presents no problems. We make it easy.

The reward — a Home Equity Loan. As time goes by, you build what we call equity in your home. This continues to build because your repayments become easier to pay and inflation naturally increases the value of your property. So by using your Home Equity Loan, you can borrow to build other assets. Instead of a holiday, buy a holiday house. Instead of a second car, finance another property for rental purposes. Indeed we'll happily show you how to borrow to build your portfolio of assets. Our Home Asset Management Plan is unique. No other bank offers you a Plan like ours and it should never be confused with ordinary home loans because it really does offer you a complete financial picture. Better still, it's an absolutely free service. For your free Home Asset Management Plan booklet get together with any National Australia Bank today.

Coffee lounge will become the meeting place THE place to go after a day spent shopping in Savemore Centre will be Louise's Coffee Lounge. Set amid the new redeveloped section in Savemore Centre, shoppers can relax and enjoy a meal, light snack or refreshment in air-conditioned comfort. The coffee lounge will seat 40 people with either private tables inside or part-of-the-action tables in the mall. Manageress Louise Barnes said Louise's aimed to give shoppers a pleasant place for eating, drinking and relaxing. "It will be a great refuge for people to go and relax after spending time shopping in the mall," she said. Louise will be assisted by a junior, another permanent and probably a casual employee. "Everything from small snacks to full meals will be•available at the coffee lounge," she said. Some of the fare includes scones, toast, 1 k fa st, espresso coffee, softdrinks, Milkshakes, parfaits and a host of other items. Proprietor Mark Maguire said there was a definite need for the coffee lounge. "People can come and sit in the lounge to cool down in air- conditioned comfort," he said. "It will be a great meeting place for everyone." Louise's will be open every day of the week from about 7am to 9pm. Mr Maguire expects the lounge to be opened for business by December 1.

ABOVE: Keppel Art and Framing proprietor Phil Smith smiles at the prospect of opening a new retail outlet in the redeveloped Savemore Centre. Mr Smith and his wife Jacqueline will still use their Normanby Street shop as the main workshop area.

FRAMING BUSINESS EXPANDS WITH SECOND COAST OUTLET PHIL and Jacqueline Smithmoved from one Coastal area to another to open a picture framing business in Yeppoon. They started their business, Keppel Art and Framing, six years ago on the Capricorn Coast, and are now extending the service by opening a retail outlet in Savemore Centre. The Savemore shop will be used to retail their

products while the Normanby Street factory will continue to be the main workshop area. Frames, prints, posters, wedding albums, paper laminating of both documents and charts, can all be carried out by by Keppel Art and Framing. Full-time and part-time staff are Shirley Green, Warren Royal, Gillian Vanderheiden

and John Robinson will be manager of the Savemore outlet. Mr Smith works in the factory while Mrs Smith handles the books and helps out at the counter. The Smith's decided to open the Savemore outlet when poster stocks started building up. "Our growing poster business was one of the

reasons for opening the new shop but we also needed the larger outlet for exposure," Mr Smith said. "When we started the business, 65 to 75 per cent of our business came from Rockhampton. "However, in that time, there has been a complete turn-around with 65 to 70 per cent of our business now coming from the Coastal region."

Tuckerbox has 1 1 -year record at Savemore

Angliss offers second choice CAPRICORN Coast residents will soon have a choice of Angliss butcherswhen a second shop is opened in Savemore Centre. However, the two shops will be offering different types of meat. There are 13 Angliss shops around Central Queensland employing 'about 60 people. The Savemore Centre-based shop will have three full-time plus a casual employed. Manager will be Gavin ChillingsWorth. Head office spokesman Peter Tarlinton said customers would be able to buy grain-fed yearling at Angliss in Savemore. The Coast's traditional, Angliss butcher in James Street would still operate but serve different meat. "Carcasseswill be boned out at the new shop," he said. Mr Tarlinton said the traditional Angliss shop would sell its normal range and would service Coast businesses including Bayview Tower Motor Inn and the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort. He said it would also still be valuable in serving its passing customers. "In some respects, Angliss' butchers at James Street and Savemore Centre will be offering different products, but some items will still be the same," Mr Tarlinton said. "The Savemore shop was opened to give the people who shop at that end of town the same high quality meat offered in the James Street butcher." It is believed the two stores will promote themselves as Angliss Uptown (Savemore)'and Downturn (James Street).

• WHEN Savemore Centre opened its doors 11 years ago, the Tuckerbox filled the needs of the hungry hordes shopping in the complex. A number of people have owned the Tuckerbox over the years and proprietor for the past three years is Mark Maguire. Mr Maguire said all kinds of food were available for take-away or sit-down outside in the mall. Sandwiches, ice-creams, lollies, drinks and cooked seafood is available. Mr Maguire said he employed two permanent and two casual staff to cope with the dayto-day running. The variety of fast food available is displayed in the refrigerated and heated units. Mr Maguire is looking forward to Tuesday's opening of the completed Savemore Centre.

Bulletin moves to new section ABOVE: Capricorn Coast Sports and Hobby Shop principal Ron Dawson is perfectly framed by this almost four metre Tiger Shark jaw which he has on display.

SPORT SHOP CATERS TO YEAR-ROUND ACTIVITY SUMMER or Winter people play sport ... and that's why Ron and Beryl Dawson bought Savemore Centre's Capricorn Coast Hobby and Sport Centre five years ago. They said they stock most sporting gear and accessories, including fishing gear and model aeroplanes and cars. Mr Dawson was a bank manager when he

bought the store. "It was a totally new experience buying the shop and I had a lot to learn," Mr Dawson said. The shop is being renovated and the major change is a new, angled shop front. Mr Dawson said he stocked general sporting equipment including cricket, tennis, football, soccer, basketball, softball, volleyball, squash,

table tennis, badminton and swimming gear. He also stocks snorkelling and fishing gear. "We can outfit the beginner fishermen and help professionals in choice," Mr Dawson said. For the person who likes relaxing there is a range of surf mats, seats and other beach accessories. There is also a range of drill bits and nails.

THE Morning Bulletin's office has relocated in the Savemore Centre. It is now in the redeveloped section. It's the third move in 13 years for the Coast office. The Morning Bulletin first opened an office in James Street in 1974 but moved to the Savemore Centre 10 years ago. The latest move is into a slightly larger office. Manning the office will be journalist Brian Dorey who will be handling photography and editorial. Maurie Danaher will be in charge of advertising. The office will be open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, for advertising and until 6pm, Monday to Friday, for editorial. Mr Dorey said coverage would continue on Saturday and Sunday.

ABOVE: Coast resident Daphne O'Brien was one of the first customers in the relocated Savemore Pharmacy. The pharmacy's name has also been changed to Higgins Pharmacy. Pictured is Mrs O'Brien being served by staff Shirley Kuhl and Kelli Gates while at the back, owner David Higgins and pharmacist Meryl Boneham prepare prescriptions.

CHEMIST FILLS CENTRE'S PRESCRIPTION NEEDS SAVEMORE has been redeveloped with a smorgasbord of new businesses. One of the previous businesses has relocated to the new mall. Savemore Pharmacy proprietor David Higgins said he had relocated in the complex and changed the name from Savemore Pharmacy to Higgins Pharmacy. Mr Higgins owns and operates another phar-

macy in Hill Street. He employs pharmacists Meryl Boneham, who works at the Savemore business, and Robin Warren, who works at Hill Street. There are also four permanent staff, Colleen Moody, Kelli Matthews, Cindy Bauer and Shirley Kuhl, and one casual employee, Natasha Higgins. Mr Higgins said he had employed another permanent and casual to work

at Savemore. A chemist for 22 years, Mr Higgins first opened his Hill Street shop in 1970. He extended the pharmacy to Savemore in 1977 after buying the health and beauty shop. He said some people didn't realise the Savemore pharmacy could fill prescriptions. Watches, health and beauty products and small gifts are also on sale.

THE Florist Link group has added another shop to its growing chain in Central Queensland. There are already five Flower Link shops in Rockhampton and now Flower Coast will open in the new redeveloped section in Savemore Centre. Proprietor Cliff Bunn said his shop would offer both better class and inexpensive gifts. "It will be a glossy looking shop with two staff," Mr Bunn said. "We have employed two Yeppoon people to work in the shop. "Manageress will be Shirley Bauer and her assistant is Barbara McDonald. "Where possible, Flower Coast will buy from around the area but it will also be buying from other places in Queensland to ensure a consistent supply." Flower Coast will be open from Mon to Saturday. It will have a wide range of flowersnd arrangements plus inexpensive gifts and souvenirs. Mr Bunn and wife Estella have been involved with Flower Link for four years. They didn't have previous experience in a flower shop but had owned a garden centre. "We are like one big happy family and hope to bring that atmosphere to the Coast," he said. "Mrs Bauer and Mrs McDonald were employed because they live on the Coast and can give a more personal touch to any order." Another service Flower Coast will offer is State and interstate delivery. Mr Bunn said the advantage of having the Rockhampton shops would be when something was unavailable at Yeppoon. "If a customer wants a specific item the Yeppoon staff can call Rockhampton to send down the item," he said. Flower Coast also stocks some lines of flower and vegetable seedlings.

4 generations of May family associated with McDougalls shoe stores

900 different lines on display at new store TANBY Seafoods and Ice stocks 900 different frozen food lines ... all will be available to Coast people when a retail outlet opens in Savemore Centre. Proprietor Tony Newton said the retail shop would be selling fresh seafood plus frozen seafood and the other 900 frozen food lines. "The seafood will be both local and imported," Mr Newton said. However, the shop won't be opened until about Wednesday, December 15. The shop's refrigeration won't arrive until about December 10, delaying opening time. Mr Newton started Tanby Seafood and Ice three years ago. "I felt there was a need for such an outlet," he said. He started as a wholesaler for Coast businesses but branched out into Savemore to give him a retail outlet as well. Coast people will now have the chance to selecte from the whole range of wholesale goods ... but in smaller quantities. Depending on the season, up to 74 Coast people may be employed at Tanby Seafoods. During normal operations there is 24 people employed but another 50 are employed during the scallop season. The outlet will be in the new section of the Savemore Centre, between the newsagency and Keppel Art and Framing.

FOUR generations of the May family hayed worked with McDougalls shoe shop. It was originally owned in partnership by the McDougall and Davis families. The Davis part of the name was dropped when they sold out but when McDougalls sold the business in the 1930s to the May family, the McDougalls names was retained. Fiftyyears later brothers Doug and Ken May, cousins David May and Vicki Brown, and Vicki's son Jason, carry on the family name in the business. Shops originally extended to Mt Chalmers and Mt Morgan but when the May's bought out McDougalls they phased them out. They now operate three stores in Rockhamp'One in East Street, one in the Northside Plaza and the Bon Bon Boutique in Rockhampton Shopping Fair. Yeppoon's McDougalls store was one of the original Savemore Centre tenants. The shop sells traditional family footwear, men's and women's fashion wear, sportswear, children wear and casual wear. It also has a repair service. David May said repairs were taken to Rockhampton twice a week. Mr May said Del Coughlan managed the Yeppoon store assisted by Dallas Hannay, Charmaine Scott and Jan Spencer; all Coast people.

Skylight brings tropics indoors at Savemore

Meeting people `best part of owning shop'

SAVEMORE has been a hive of activity in recent weeks with various tradesmen putting together a new shopping experience for Coast residents. Among the changes are a softer, curved ceiling in the malls with subdued lighting ... and a skylight that brings the tropics indoors. The skylight is a nice touch. It allows shoppers a glipse of the outdoors and will probably become a focus of attention. Parents can be expected to tell their children to meet them under the skylight ... and it won't be hard to find. Obviously, letting the tropical sun blaze into an air-conditioned shopping centre can create problems, but it seems the glare and heat will be muted by an "egg-crate" effect which will divert the direct rays into bounced light. The sun will probably only be visible at midday when it is overhead ... but the natural light will bathe the area underneath from dawn until dusk. Shop tenants near the skylight have already suggested it be decorated with ferns and there's been one suggestion for a large tree to reach from the floor of the mall into the glassed area.

RAISING five daughters was the only fulltime job Nora Green knew about until branching out into a fabric shop in Savemore Centre. With her years spent raising daughters for experience, Mrs Green opened her shop selling fabrics and dress making accessories. Mrs Green was one of the 13 original speciality shop tenants when the centre opened in July, 1975. Denhams Supa-Valu store was the major shop bringing the then total to 14. Her shop will now be one of 26 speciality shops in the redeveloped Savemore Centre. "It was a gamble because Yeppoon was a small town and I didn't know how successful a fabric shop would be," Mrs Green said. "I'm glad I did because there's now a fairly steady flow of customers." While loving the work, Mrs Green said the best part of having the shop has been the contact with people. "In the years I've been open it's the people's contact I have enjoyed most and would mi I closed," she said. She said the redevelopment of the Savemore Centre would give all shoppers a wider choice.

, • "1.4% 'If Coomg-*;IGes iktle ABOVE: This skylight shown being installed at the Savemore Centre will bring natural tropical light into the mall.

NO RIBBON-CUTTING CEREMONY FOR CENTRE'S EXTENSIONS THERE won't a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Grand Re-opening of the Savemore Centre on Tuesday, December 1. Denhams Bros Ltd managing director Ron Smyth said the company was passing up the opportunity to allow the new-look complex to settle down as quickly as possible. The disruptions caused by renovations in recent weeks have been kept to a minimum, but" the mammoth rebuilding had to, of necessity, cause some problems. Shoppers, and tenants, have had to do without air-conditioning and parking has been disrupted by construction and associated vehicles.

The centre opens on Tuesday with a countdown to Christmas. For the Coast, the reopening couldn't have happened at a better time. Just when there are renewed calls for more emphasis on local shopping, the Savemore complex provides a string of reasons for people to "pop into town". • The supermarket has been enlarged. There are twice as many specialty shops ... and there's twice as much parking. And there's a mothers' room ... a place for mothers to take babies for feeding and changing. Mr Smyth said this room was a necessity. "We knew we had to provide a room for

mothers and it was so important we cut down the size of one of the shops to provide for it," he said. And, while Denhams have been renovating and enlarging the Savemore Centre, the individual tenants have been been working hard changing their stores. Their efforts have been rewarded. The whole centre has a "new" feeling about it. There's new tiles and carpet everywhere. The latest ideas in shopping centre decore have been "imported". There's new lights in the ceilings, new display racks, soft colours on walls and new counters.

The changes, in some cases have been gradual ... in other cases, they have been carried out at blinding speed. Some shops have been transformed overnight. Painters have moved in, stock has been removed, the store redcorated ... and been back in business either the next day or after the weekend. While there won't be a ribbon-cutting ceremony, at least one shop provided a ribbon. Kris Plahn stretched a ribbon across her hair salon on Monday morning and, in front of clients and friends, Mary Lester, wife of Industrial Relations Minister Vince Lester, cut the ribbon and declared the salon open.

BENNETT'S AIMS DIRECTLY AT MEN'S MARKET ELEVENyears ago the Bennett family moved to Yeppoon after a number of years in Western Queensland. Tony Bennett said that when he arrived, he saw a need for a men's clothing store. Already familiar with the clothing industry, he opened Bennett's Menswear in the Savemore

Centre. Mr Bennett's store was one of the original tenants. Smart and casual clothing can be bought in the store. All styles and many well known labels are also available. "The shop aims directly at men, offering both smart and casual wear," Mr Bennett said.

For all your Holiday and Business arrangments contact your local Travel Agent...


Four years ago Mr Bennett was elected chairman of the Savemore Traders' Association, which has helped with the redevelopment. "The centre has a bright future," Mr Bennett said. "The extensions are good, there will be variety, and plenty of parking for customers."

Performance: You can also choose from seven different investment portfolios from the security of the cash portfolio to a range of growth portfolios, all managed by our team of investment professionals.

Motel boats OK A MOTEL proprietor has been given Livingstone Shire Council approval to operate three small aluminum boats from his Kinka Beach premises. In a letter to council, Elgan Motel's Eric Nagle asked if he could increase his hire business by two additional aluminium boats outfitted with motors. Mr Nagle said he already hired one small boat to mainly motel guests who wanted to fish the estuary near by. He couldn't see any problems arising by investing in two further small boats. Council approved Mr Nagle's application to be allowed to hire a total of three small trailer boats from his Elgan Motel, Kinka Beach.

No to closure LIVINGSTONE Shire Council will object to any move for a permanent road closure of Ocean Street, Emu Park. J and M Morris submitted a road closure application to the Land Administration Commission. They asked for a section of Ocean Street to be closed but for a four metre wide strip to remain open to provide pedestrian access to the rocky shore. Assistant shire engineer Peter Harbeck said the road closure had been considered before. He said council had decided the road may be required for local government purposes and shouldn't be closed. Council will send an objection to the Land Administration Commission to the proposed road closures.

THE National Party Emu Park branch has written to Livingstone Shire Council with an idea to improve the corner of Hill and Pattison Streets. It told Livingstone Shire Council a roundabout at the corner would "alleviate the dangerous situation". "This intersection is especially busy on weekends, and the holiday periods, and in the past there have been many near misses with the build up of traffic," the branch's letter said. Council will consider a roundabout in future works programmes but it had higher priorities in unsealed Emu Park roads.

Contact Rita Crowley, 34 4387, or Marion McNeill, 34 4133 to book a stall. *** WELL, the Tall Ship. Leo Carpenter contacted me with some information about the Tall Ship coming to the Central Coast next month. Glenn Reddiex of Capricorn Coast Tours, 39 1325, has arranged to take Coast people to Gladstone to see the ship which is en route from Eucador to Sydney. There is a little problem. No-one is sure of the actual date of arrival because the Pacific is talking longer to cross than was originally t,ght. If they run into any cyclones it could be longer. Glenn said he will definitely know one way or the other by December 12 whether the ship will be sailing into Gladstone. If you are interested in going to see the Tall Ship ... it is definitely the chance of a lifetime, and would like to travel by bus, contact Glen, so he will have some idea about numbers. He has promised to let me know, so I can let you know, when things start to happen. The cost will probably be S8 for adults and S4 children, but don't hold him to it yet.

The Giants and their party are due to arrive in Rockhampton on Saturday, December 12, for a three day visit to the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort as a prize given to them for winning the 1987 Pennants Competition. Professional baseball is the most popular sport in Japan with fans numbering more than 50 million (half the Japanese population). When the Yomiuri Giants are playing on their home ground more than 55,000 people go to see them play. Baseball was imported into Japan from America over 100 years ago, and although Sumo wrestling remains the traditional Japanese national sport, because of its popularity, baseball has become the national sport. The pennant competition consists of six teams, with each team playing 130 games in the season which runs from April through to October. Tokyo Yomiuri Giants owner Toru Shoriki gave the trip to the Giants as a prize for winning the pennants. Mr Shoriki owns the Japanese Yomiuri newspaper which has a daily circulation of 8 million copies, making it the biggest circulating newspaper in the world.

Included in the party visiting the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort will be the players' wives and family, along with a media entourage of about 36. The Giant's trip to Central Queensland will be televised and written about in Japan, ensuring publicity for the Central Queensland area.

Second grade cricketers have to follow-on SECOND grade Capricorn Coast cricketers were forced to follow-on when they were bowled out for 110 runs last weekend. Chasing Grammar's score of 219, Coast failed by nine runs to avoid being sent into bat again. Adrian Smith top-scored with 31 and Jeff Ingle made 27. Coast batted out the rest of the day and at stumps were three for 119. Dennis Kolega made 31, Adrian Smith 16, Brendan Fleetwood was not out on 35 and Jeff Ingle was not out on 15. In third grade, Coast resumed its innings against Commonwealth with their score of five for 42 and were all out for 126 ... missing out on the first innings point by 24 runs. A good partnership of 50 between Ron Mackie and Paul Marsh helped to put some respectability back into Coast's score. Ron Mackie made 31, Paul Marsh 39 and Brett Russell 15. Commonwealth then went into bat and made a quick 203. The only highlight of the bowling was two wickets that went to Brett Russell who was named man of the match. The opposition then sent Coast back into bat for the final 20 overs of the match. At stumps Coast was six for 35.

Mariners down to Strugglers IN the A grade squash final Strugglers displaced Mariners convincingly 3-1. Strugglers number four, Andrew Dowie, took the first match 3-0 from Val Odell who appeared to be off her recent form. Damien Bri,erty continued for Strugglers, dropping only the third game in a 3-1 result against the ever-wily Chris Callard. Peter Gordon clinched the result for Strugglers with a 3-0 win. Peter appeared to be at his best never letting Glen Ward get settled into the match and forcing many errors. Brett Stewart claimed Mariners only point with a win in three against John Briggs. Strugglers now meet top team Tony's BYO in the grand final at the Capricorn Coast Squash Centre.

JOHN Bretz is the (wait for it) Bretz half of Cuddy and Bretz ... and he's the funny half. He's never short of a funny remark about anything ... absolutely anything. This week, while Cathy (Lois Lane) Logan was interviewing both of them about how long they had been in business and other world-shattering questions, John Bretz was asked how long Doug Cuddy had been in the electrical business. Bretzy, using colourful language, answered that Doug had got into the electrical business shortly after electricity was invented!!! *** KRIS PLAHN learned one of the facts of life this week. She invited Mary Lester, wife of Industrial Affairs Minister (at least, hewas on Wednesday night) Vince Lester to officially open her hairdressing salon in Savemore on Monday. Everything went so well Kris was probably thinking she would organise a few more functions along the same lines ... then Mary Lester finished her speech and invited Kris to say a few words in reply. Kris, without her scissors, made a few clipper' remarkswhich added up to thanks ... and wa,.) saved by Mrs Lester from any further speechmaking. Kris' relief was evident... * *

THERE'S an unsung hero who's doing a lot for the Coast ... Ron Smyth, the managing director of Denhams Bros. Ltd. He's the bloke who will get the kicks if anything goes wrong ... and is the sort of bloke who passes on praise for everything that goes right to the people above or below him. He has been in the firing line for months as the Savemore Centre has been renovated ... everyone who has had a complaint has had the chance to talk to him because he's probably spent more time at the centre than he has at his desk. Now it's unlikely that everyonewanted to tell him how nice everything was ... no doubt, knowing the Coast, there would have been the very occasional person who would have wanted to make a remark about dust, noise or inconvenience. Yet this week, everyone who spoke about him was full of praise for his courtesy. You see, Ron Smyth listens. It's an almost forgotten art but he'swell schooled in it. And he's a nice bloke, too! This unpaid commercial comes about because too often, the people who really count don't get the praise they deserve ... this time one did!!! * * *

BEEN a while since Suzy's made an appearance in this column (probably a whole week) but she did something this week that can't be passed up ... she went to church. Probably nothing unusual in that I suppose except she went on Saturday. Can't blame her, after all, it was the Seventh Day Adventist Church and she was attending the Rededication of thLj' Church itself. Unfortunately, for Suzy, anyway, the rededication was held on Sunday. Anyone could make the mistake ... except that Suzy set in type the advertisement saying it was to be held on Sunday!!! *** BY the way, "Lois" waswith her ... and, when Suzy was told she had arrived a day too early she simply remarked that it was "her" fault ... and "Lois" copped another blast of publicity! *** AS everyone knows, school finished on Friday for Year 12s ... the leaders of the 21st Century. One of them was especially lucky he had a job to go to; on Friday afternoon. The lucky fella was Rhodes Watson. He's a tall, blond, good-looking fella who's father's one of the nicest people you could know ... and his mother is well known for her sweet, lovable nature. Oh, by the way, this fella just happens to be the son of the Mirror's owners ... and I'm saying all this because I want to get on the boss' son's right side. Also, this is a note to introduce him to the real world. You see, Rhodes Watson is going to be a photographer, typesetter, compositor, journalist, salesman, cleaner, tea-maker, phone-answerer, paper delivery boy and lunch go and getter and don't forget the sauce. Also, he will quickly learn one of the advantages of being born into a family-owned business ... he can work any hours he likes as long as they total 105 at the end of the week. The reason ) he will be doing all the above jobs is that the-.0 Mirror is too poor to afford an office cat. If you see him out on a job, treat him gently ... he's got a lifetime ahead of him to gain cynicism. Let him do it slowly. Right now, he's one of the rare ones ...the sees good in everything!
