Jesus -- God's gift of eternal life is a lasting Christmas 'special' * By Pastor Ernie Peters, Capricorn Coast Assembly of God. AND on the earth peace toward men of good will. Jesus was called "Prince of Peace" in Isaiah 9:6. As the only Son of God Jesus was sent to us that very first Christmas to show us the way back to God. He was tempted "as we are, yet without sin" the Bible tells us in Hebrews 2:18. God is still

giving to us peace of heart, mind and soul through Jesus. God is still offering the gift of eternal life through Jesus and only Jesus. John 3:36 "He who has the Son has life, he who has not the Son has not life, but the wrath of God abides in Him". God humbled Himself in sending Jesus, desiring us to humble ourselves from pride, unbelief, self-sufficiency and disinterest to accept

His precious gift. Our Christmas trees are getting smaller and our gifts under them smaller and fewer each year due to inflation. But God's tree, the Cross of Calvary, is still big enough for the whole world. And God's gift of salvation, Jesus, is still good enough to cleanse the worst sinner in the world. In fact God's gift of His Son was, and still is, for sinners. You can only receive Him after

Bring surprise into the lives of others -- the joy of Christmas * By Rev Nwre Svenson, the Uniting Church in Australia, Palish of Capricont Coast. WHAT are you expecting to happen this Christmas? Do a street survey and you will get as many answers as there are people you ask. If you are very small you will say "Santa Claus and lots of presents". If you are a little older "lots of food and maybe a swimming pool". Some will say " a few beers at the pub" and others "just a quiet few days away from it all". We have it all planned and we know what we expect and its probably the same from year to year - the same carolsbecause they are the ones we know. The decorations were put in the same place as the year before and are ready to be taken out. The pudding recipe is an old faithful and we know it will work. The people are the same and not likely to stir the pot. If Uncle Felix does, well we can just ignore him. We know what will happen. But'God is a bit like Uncle Felix and he does stir the pot and does bring about the unexpected, especially if you are looking for the same things each year. He is a God of surprises. As Father Christmas says in Bushfire Christmas "Don't yer look in no sack now, or there won't be no surprises fer yer". What surprise to the shepherds of Bethlehem and a shock for

PART of the pleasure of Christmas is giving gifts to the people we love. I heard of a young boywho once walked many miles to pick up a special shell off a beach, to give to a friend. The friend said, "you should not have gone so far, just to get a gift for me" The boy said, "Long walk, part of the gift". He understood the true meaning of Christmas. Through His love for us, Jesus left His place in heaven, and walked this earth to bring us His free gift of eternal life. Let uswalk His way and share our gift with others, not just one day a year, but every day.

admitting that you are a sinner, in need of forgiveness. No person is good enough for God without Jesus. Salvation is a free gift. You will never be good enough for heaven without the free gift of salvation through Jesus. If you do not yet know Jesus for sure, why don't you go to church on Christmas day to find how to receive the first ever Christmas gift. It is the only Christmas special that lasts all year.

Herod! What a beginning for us if we ask for a Christmas full of surprises. Perhaps a time to rejoice because we have brought good news to the poor. The poor are the ones most likely to be surprised. Very little comes their way and anything that does is a surprise. The 'rich' (and none of us is rich in everything) feel no need for anything and everything they receive is seen to be expected. Even Christmas can be foretold. It is said that if we expect nothing to happen then nothing ever does. Mostly the unexpected happens through other people. We can bring surprise into the lives of others and see the joy on their faces ... like children opening presents on Christmas morning or an aged one receiving an unexpected visit in the midst of a lonely life. The joy of Christmas is seen in the faces of people surprised. May this joy be yours.

Share free gift of eternal life * By Rev Gene S Hudson, Wesleyan Methodist Cluarh of Australia. ALL gifts in one. Christmas is a time of giving and receiving. God has set the pattern. In giving Christ, God aives us all things in Him. Do we need forgiveness, cleansing, comfort, power to overcome evil habits and strong temptations and courage to confess the Saviour before men? Do we seek eternal life, assurance of salvation, peace and fellowship with God, joy, hope and a home in Heaven? Not one of these great blessings is given to us as a thing by itself. They are all included in the one comprehensive gift of the only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ. What a gift! What a giver! What an experience in receiving this gift.

Friendship and support thanks * By Federal Member for Capticornia Keith Wright. AS Federal Member for Capricornia I wish to sincerely thank the Capricorn Coast Mirror for this opportunity to convey to all Mirror readers the blessings of Christmas and every best wish. for the bicentennial year. I have greatly appreciated the support and advice given to me during the last year by many community groups and individuals in the area as I have endeavoured to work for this wonderful region. My wife Alison and I are appreciative also of the special friendships we have made during 1987 and we look forward to working with each and every one throughout the coming year for the betterment of our community.

Put Christ back into Christmas * By FatherNoel Mi liter, Catholic Palish of the Capricorn Coast. GOD'S ways are not our ways! Nobody expected Him like that: a baby, a manger, a young man, a young woman. Nobody expected that His first visitors would be shepherds, little thought of in the eyes of the great. Yes, Christ -- the Saviour has come -- but not as the world expected. The kings of that time had sons and daughters, but who knows who they were now? Who would have known Herod, except that Christ spoke of him? Who would have thought that 2000 years later most people would know of the sleepy, poverty stricken town of Bethelemhem

of His day, but no one cares for the mighty cities of Antioch and Alexandra that then ruled the world. He turned our notions of fame and success upside down. Long after Herod's castles are in ruins, the cave of Bethlehem stands strong and holy, a place of hope for generations yet unborn, because one starry night the Son of God was born there. Let's turn our celebration of Christmas back to where it should be ... put Christ back into your Christmas. Once again let Christ be born in your life. May you all have a very happy and a holy Christmas. Peace.

Time to extend a little kindness * By Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John ON behalf of members and staff, I wish everyone in this great shire of ours a happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year. As a nation we are about to celebrate our 200th year and at this festive time we are celebrating an event which took place almost 2000 years ago. No one will ever know the true value of Christmas for it is one of the most influential events in our civilisation, when millions of people all over the world once a year break the routine of daily life to remember and pay homage to the birth ofJestis Christ and to think about their families, their friends and their lives.

Not everyone is fortunate even in the most affluent society, and Christmas is the ideal time for those to have the opportunity to offer a little kindness beyond the immediate circle of family and friends. Local Government is the Government closest to the people, and similiarly doctors, nurses, policemen, ambulance, firemen and many other people in need. The pace and pressure of our everyday life tends to obsure the wider needs in our community. The festive season is the time to extend a little kindness to the less fortunate in our society. Livingstone Shire has a great future. Let us greet this bicentennial year with enthusiasm and goodwill.

Rewarding, challenging year * By Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. DURING 1987, my first year in office as your State Parliamentary member, I have enjoyed the experience of getting to know you, your problems, your aspirations and of course representing you. The position has been both rewarding and challenging, due to the enormous diversity of interests -- retirement, tourism, fishing, farming and service industries on the Coast and coal mining industry on the western side of my electorate. The potential of this district is enormous with its unspoilt natural beauty and I am proud that during the last year I have been in the privileged

position of being able to contribute towards the realisation of that potential, both in the material sense and social and sporting areas where government can assist a community. I have provided my total effort over the past 12 months and with this experience behind me, I hope to improve on this performance in the year ahead. I sincerely hope that all my constituents will enjoy living in this wonderful environment next year and wish you all a very merry Christmas and health and happiness in 1988 with the added hope that the New Year will bringpeace, prosperity and tranquility to all.

Christmas: festival of gluttony, selfishness and irreligion * By John Cornish, Rector and Palish Priest Anglican Palish of Keppel. A FEW weeks ago I asked a group of 14 and 15 year-olds to pretend that they had been contracted as an advertising agency to promote the spirit of,Christmas. The results were, to say the least, disappointing. Nowhere in their marketing did I hear the words peace, goodwill to all people or glory to God, as the angels at the birth of Jesus Christ proclaimed. The typical theme was self-gratification. There was not a thought for the other person, it was all me and what I can get. I was saddened. It wasn't so much the children's fault that they thought only of theinselves. It was our society's and their parents' values that they had picked up. Christmas was born in the gift of God to us. We have so devalued the festival of Christ's Mass that it has become a festival of gluttony, selfishness and irreligion. Let's try to have our Christmas this year fit into the true spirit of Christmas. Why not try to act more kindly to your parents or to your children or to the elderly person down the street? How about doing something in the spirit of Christmas expecting nothing in return. If you don't have a church to attend, the Anglican congregations of Emu Park and Yeppoon would welcome you at any of their Christ Mass celebrations. May the light of the Christmas star shine in

your life this Christmas and also through you into the lives of those with whom you come in contact.

Bayfield push THE gazettal of vacant crown land at the proposed Bayfield National Park area north of Corio Bay, known as stage one, an area of 4600 hectares is beina strongly pressed by Member for BroadsoundbDenis Hinton. "I am directly responsible for the preventation of the area being declared an environmental park under the trusteeship of the Iwasaki San'o Company by former premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen," he said. "I have had talks with National Parks Minister Geoff Muntz and new Mines Minister Martin Tenni about early action on the gazettal." Mr Hinton said he could see no reason why immediate action could not proceed and will be pressing that the matter be raised at cabinet level. "The natural beauty of the area belongs to the people and must be preserved for recreational use."

THE Capricorn Coast's police will be working to make the area safer for people both on the sea and on the roads. Office-in-charge Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer there were a number of things people could do to avoid getting into troublewith the police ... and all it boiled down to was using commonsense. "If you are going to drink, don't drive," Sgt Tanzer said. "There will be extra police patrolling the Coast during the Christmas and New Year break. "The Reduced Impaired Driving (RID) programme will also be operating on the Coast. We aim to make the roads safe for caring motorists." Sgt Tanzer said the Yeppoon Water Police would also be looking to make the sea channels a safe place for people to enjoy recreational pursuits. He said officer-in-charge of Yeppoon's Water Police was Sgt John Campbell who is assisted by Senior Constable Noel Perkins. "Both will be making regular patrols to ensure the water is safe for people," Sgt Tanzer said. He reminded people that stealing, including shoplifting, were chargable offences. "If someone is tempted to steal they should think twice about their actions," Sgt Tanzer said. "Ask yourself would you like someone to take this from you ... it's only commonsense." He also warned would-be shoplifters many businesses were aware goods could be stolen so they had employed more staff to watch out for offenders. Another place Capricorn Coast police will be aiming to make safe is the beach. Sgt Tanzer said people should think of others and not throw their bottles or rubbish on the beach but use the rubbish bins provided. "If one of those bottles breaks, some little child playing in the sand might cut themself badly," Sgt Tamer said. "Also, it is an offence to drink alcohol on a road, public park or reserve." Sgt Tanzer said if people used commonsense during the holidays, the police's duty would be more pleasant, but if someone does break the law they can expect to have to deal with the police. Sgt Tanzer hopes all Capricorn Coast residents will have a safe, happy, Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.

More for families

Capri Chickens and Seafood

WORKING families may be soon receiving extra money to help care for their children. The Family Allowance Supplement started on December 17 and will provide up to S22 per week for children under 13 and up to S28 per week for each child aged 13 to 15. Rockhampton Social Security regional manager Michael McCabe said the assistance was part of the federal budget's family package. "The supplement is tax free and is paid in addition to the monthly family allowance," he said. The income limits start at $300 per week for one child, rising by $12 per week for each additional child. Anyone wishing to obtain more details can ring the hotline on (008) 017007 for the cost of a local call. People already receiving pensions, benefits or the previous family income supplement need not re-apply as their payments will increase automatically.

Mangoes promote Capricorn Coast HIGHLIGHTING Coast produce is the aim of a new fruit packaging case launched last week by Yeppoon Fruitgrowers' at the Yeppoon Co-operative. Co-operative manager Grahame Bulley said 25,000 mango boxes and about 20,000 avocado cases had been redesigned for the markets to give the Coast more publicity. The cases are about 40cm long 45cm wide and 30cm deep. "At the moment the cases are only for mangoes but the same type will be used for avocadoes and possibly pineapples," Mr Bulley said. The box's lid carries the Capricorn Tourist Development Organisation's 'Capricorn' logo. The boxes are sent to produce markets in Queensland and inter-State. The aim of using the new boxes is two-fold. "It will show buyers they're getting good quality produce and it helps identify the Capricorn Coast," Mr Bulley said.

0...ETTERS TO THE EDITOR - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR) RATE INFORMATION RURAL landowners in Livingstone Shire are only too well aware that they pay a general rate and also a separate rate for rural road construc. tion and maintenance. Urban land owners only pay one general rate

for the same services. The separate rate was introduced several years ago as a means of raising sufficient funds for road works in rural areas. At that time, the Local Government Act would not allow councils to levy a rural rate higher than an urban rate (both based on cents in the dollar of valuation). Hence the rural "road levy" rate came into

being. The problem with the road levy is that about 60 per cent of rural land owners are required to pay the "minimum rate" set by the council at S175 when in fact their calculated rate is generally significantly less than the minimum. On top of this, they have to pay the rural "road levy". The Local Government Act was amended in Apri1,1985 to allow councils to levy "Differential General Rates" to overcome the above problems. Some councils have been using this new legislation to provide a more equitable rate collection. Not so in Livingstone. John Bowen, in his own published pre-election propaganda, stood for "getting rid of the rural road levies". He has since presided over the fixing of two annual budgets and thas failed to remove this iniquitious charge as promised. Council has now deferred discussion on the subject to March 1988 - perhaps too late for it to be made an election issue? To further illustrate the disadvantages the rural ratepayers are being subjected to, how many of them would know that their general rates have been used to fund the Capricorn Coast Water and Sewerage schemes to the extent of 515,288.41 last year? Also, are the residents of the Causeway Lake area aware of the 524,000 spent last year on the Causeway walk bridge as shown on page 18 of the council's financiAl statements? Or was that S24,000 spent on streetworks in Emu Park? People can easily be lulled into complacency when t,hey are told over and over that "everything is going so smoothly". My experience is that people will stand up and be counted when they find out that they are being taken for a ride; especially when they are paying for the ticket. — Tony Rowe, PO Box 445, Yeppoon 4703.

PETITION THANKS MAY I, through your paper, thank the residents of Yeppoon and visitors for their support to the petition conducted this week. While some of those asked had conflicting views, I did not encounter any rudeness while either in the street or shops. Thank you all for your patience in listening and understanding. — Jan Edwards, Yeppoon.


AT a division four meeting earlier this year, ratepayers were assured by the shire clerk that erroneous water charges would not recur. Here we are again, another financial year gone, with yet more of the same. It's quite clear, that unless each ratepayer can actually calculate his own account, he will never* know whether he has used the excess water for which he is being charged. This is the simple method to follow. For those with such accounts, you'll need your meter readings - according to council records, (assuming these are correct - but don't be too sure) both for June 1986 and June 1987. Take the '86 reading from the '87 reading and thiswill give you your total yearly consumption in kilolitres. For householders: You are entitled to four units of water yearly, or 520 kilolitres. (one unit equals 130 Kl) if your yearly consumption is greater than 520 Kl, you have used excess. To calculate the cost of the excess, multiply the difference by 40 (40 cents per K1), then divide by 100 to bring to dollars. For commercial premises it's slightly different. Just multiply the number of units allowed by 130 (the number of units allowed will be on your general rate notice). If your total consumption exceeds this figure, then you too will have used excess. Calculate the cost as above. Multiply by 40 then divide by 100. If any ratepayer has used less than the number of units allowed, he should not receive an account. And remember, to be completely accurate, it's best to read your own meter at the end of each financial year. Just ask councilwhen the man will be out, and you can double check the reading with him. If in doubt, I would be happy to clarify. Just ring me on 36 1195. Good luck. -- Glenda Mather, PO Box 5186, RMC. 4702.

Reported Quotes of the week The following are extracts taken from the Morning Bulletin and Capricorn Coast Mirror relating to Livingstone Shire Council matters during the past three years. The writer considers the extracts to be in the public interest and no comments have been added to them. * On secrecy: Question in Mirror- Do you think decision-making should take place behind closed doors? Bowen No. Mirror question - Why? Bowen Because we live in a democracy and should protect it at all costs. (Mirror, March 3, 1985) Livingstone will now consider all business in committee before recommendations are put to a later open council meeting. Cr Barbara Wildin, who registered her vote against, said it went against what Cr Bowen had fought for in the election. "You fought against committee meetings and said justice must be seen to be done." (Morning Bulletin, May 14, 1986) * On fire service changes: Cr Cresta said he made his decision to support Yeppoon's "upgrading" after reading the reports from the fire services department and other experts. (Mirror, October 17, 1987) Yeppoon has been conned this week. It has had its fire services downgraded from 24 hours, seven days a week, to a "dawn to dusk service" - in the interests of economy. (Mirror, October 10, 1987) * On filling a council vacancy: Cr Bowen last night stood bythe council's appointment of Mrs Hooper and said next week's general meeting would go ahead as planned. (Morning Bulletin, November 25, 1986) She's not a councillor because the solicitor general says she wasn't appointed in accordance with the Local Government Act. Whatever she or the chairman (Cr John Bowen) say is irrelevent. (Minister's press secretary, Morning Bulletin, November 27, 1986) * On decision responsibility: Cr Cresta said, it would have left the park devoid of shade and foliage. "Anyone ordering this kind of destruction should be horsewhipped," he said. (Morning Bulletin, February, 1986) Cr Mario Cresta did move the motion "that the mango trees be pruned hard as soon as possible" - but he said this week he-did this only as chairman of the works committee, not as the original mover of the motion. (Mirror, March 8, 1986) * On accountancy: Question in Mirror - As a member of Livingstone Shire Council, you would be involved in the spending of public money. Do you believe council should be accountable to the public for how it is spent. Cr Bowen - Yes. (Mirror, March 30, 1985) Open Government - What does Livingstone Shrie chairman have to hide? This question is asked because chairman Cr John Bowen has told the Capricorn Coast Mirror it must ask for information about fees paid to consultants by letter - and full council will decide whether the questions will be answered. (Mirror editorial, June 14, 1986) Authorised J Chapman, Maida Street, Yeppoon.

THE Capricorn Coast has a solid core of bookings during the Christmas and New Year holiday period but people will still be able book at many accommodation places. A survey of Capricorn Coast accommodation principals this week showed the Coast had solid bookings for the festive season but, compared with past years, holiday bookings had been slower than usual. Many owners said the trend seemed to be for families to stay home for Christmas and then begin holidays. It was common to find accommodation owners weren't fully booked until about Boxing Day when families would start arriving in force. Seaspray units' Blossom Hooper said they were completely booked out during Christmas. "The only vacancies are around the end of January," Mrs Hooper said. "During the first week of the holidays there were some vacancies, but from December 24 to January 18 the eight units are completely booked out." Mrs Hooper said this was a fairly normal Christmas period with most guests coming from around the Central Queensland area including the mining towns, as well as Mackay and Rockhampton. "In early January there will be some visitors from Kelvin Grove in Brisbane, Melbourne and Murgon," Mrs Hooper said. Como unit proprietors Fay and Horst Simon said they were completely booked out for the next three weeks. Mrs Simon said the majority of bookings came from Central Queensland and the far west but there were some overseas visitors. Bay Vacationer is booked from Christmas until about January 7 with a smattering of bookings through to January 24. Proprietor Yvonne Motton said usually the seven units were booked solid until the end of

the month but it was only about 60 per cent booked. "Bookings are a bit down on last year but I think people will book in after Christmas," Mrs Motton said. Coolwaters "is like a lot of caravan parks," acting manager Phil Simmonds said. "People won't really start coming in until about Christmas Eve." Mr Simmonds said the 14 units and five onsite caravans were nearly full but things were a little slow in the caravan paik section. "Coolwaters is about 50 per cent booked between now and New Year," Mr Simmonds said. "Surprisingly, the tent sites are also fairly well booked out but it's still quiet compared with past years." Judy Watts from Kinka Lodge said the six units were fully booked duing the Christmas and New Year period. She said while it-was pretty busy, bookings were about the same as in past years. Capricorn Iwasaki Resort reports to have good bookings during the Christmas and New. Year break but isn't fully booked out. A resort spokesman said there were still vacancies for people passing through the Coast. Of the Livingstone Shire Council-owned caravan parks, Beachside, with its reduced sites, is nearly full. Caretaker Norma Kidman said there were still a couple of sites available but expected these to be taken by travellers passing through the area. Beachside now only has 70 powered sites, available. It did have 140, and a number of unpowered sites, but the four-lane highway works have reduced the number. Mrs Kidman said with less sites she expected the park to be fuller and only has about four sites left. Bell Park, Emu Park, will be almost full from Boxing Day. Caretaker Gary Harris said there would only be about three vacant sites. He said last year some people had arrived before Christmas. The trend this year, he said, was for people to arrive about Boxing day and stay two, three or four weeks. Caretaker arKingel Park, Keppel Sands, Jim Mills, said it would be "very quiet" in the area until after Boxing Day. Mr Mills said the trend was for families to have Christmas at home and then arrive at the beach, staying on average three weeks. "The caravan park section is only half full with only two booked in the tent sites, but after Christmas I expect the park to be about twothirds full," Mr Mills said. "It would be on a par with previous years but is still relatively quiet now." Mulambin Beach caretaker Ivy McNamara echoed Mr Mill's and Mr Harris' thoughts. She said it seemed people stayed home for Christmas and started holidays the day after. Mrs McNamara said Mulambin Beach, which was only a camping area, was far from being full. She expected it to pick up after Christmas. • "It seems for the past two years people come in volumes after Christmas but only stay about two weeks." Laurie Killeen, owner of Island View at Kinka Beach, said this year had been a bit slower compared with past years. He said there were still some powered caravan sites as well as tent sites. However the onsite vans and cabins were full until January 20. "The cabins were the best attraction this year," Mr Killeen said. "It's only the second year we've had them. Last year they didn't do as well but people rushed to book them this year." Lakeside, at the Causeway Lake, will be "pretty full" from Christmas to New Year, according to manageress Gayle Scanlan. Lakeside offers camping, powered sites and on-site vans. Mrs Scanlan said the bookings were "very good". Cooee Bay's Poinciana Park has a 'heap' of van and tent sites available. Manageress Sylvia Belot said the park was by no means booked out, which was pretty much the same as in past years. The only well booked attractions have been the cabins. "The cabins are fully booked for the next two to three weeks," Mrs Belot said. Gum Nut Glen proprietor Cecily Pickett said

Manageress Jeanette Cavanagh said the park was generally busywith only some tent sites and caravan sites available for booking. Mrs Cavanagh said last year the cabins had been booked before Christmas. There were more cabins available this year but they have been booked out.

Manager at Blue Dolphin Trevor White said siteswere fairlywell booked but there were still some on-site and plenty of powered sites available. Mr White said after the New Year a few more on-site vans would be available. "People seem to be a little later in starting their holidays," Mr White said. "More people are coming after Christmas but its still a bit slower. "The last really good year was in 1985. Since then it has seemed to get slower and slower." Allamanda Court will be fully booked out during the Christmas and New Year break. Owner Joanne Murray said the seven units would be fully booked out. She said the units had in past years also been booked out for this period. Tropical Nites Motel manageress Ingrid Moulder said they were fairly booked for the Christmas and New Year break but there were still some vacancies. Mrs Moulder said Tropical Nites had nine units which were fairly

booked. Brigitte Beilharz from Kinka Beach's Sunlover Lodge said her four units were fully booked. Mrs Beilharz said bookings at Sunlover Lodge were always good and this year compared favourable with past years. She said there was a vacancy for a few days during January but overall the units were fully booked for the whole holiday period. Elaine Melaney from Sail Inn Motel has five units for holiday bookings but keeps four units for the passing traveller. Mrs Melaney said the unit bookings had been fairly good with a lot of people making phone inquiries. She said Sail Inn was generally filled during the Christmas and New Year break, which was similar to past years. Parade 38 proprietor Grahame Miles said in past years the motel was full for the Christmas and New Year break but there were still vacancies available this year. Mr Miles also said he found people weren't staying for as long as they normally do, which was about three weeks. "A lot stay for only about one week," Mr Miles said. Lammermoor Lodge manageress Laurel Lucas said the four units were booked out for Christmas and New Year. "All the units are full until about January 9 or 10," Mrs Lucas said. Bill Mackie, the new owner of Hacienda, only started two weeks ago but he said the five units appeared to be fully booked for the Christmas and New Year holiday period. Hacienda is now undergoing alterations. Mr Mackie said he had had 15 years' experience with hotel and motels and had retired to the Capricorn Coast. He bought next door to Hacienda and decided to buy the units as well. Elgan Units at Kinka Beach aren't as booked as they would like. Proprietor Pat Nagle said thisyear had been slower than usual with plenty of vacanicies during the Christmas and New Year period. Roadworks on the four-lane highway have slightly affected business at Driftwood Units in Todd Avenue. Manager John Allen said although from now until the New Year period the nine units were fairlywell booked out, the early part of December had been quieter than usual. He put this down to the roadworks because many travellers passing through had stopped at Driftwood. The four-lane highway works have hindered in that way but he expected business would pick-up when works finished.

BIN SHORTAGE? WITH the onset of Chistmas holidays the Causeway Progress Association maintains there is a refuse bin shortage in the Causeway Lake area. Association secretary Barry Quigley said after metal bins had been removed by order of Livingstone Shire health surveyor, enough bins should have been provided to replace the metal bins. Mr Quigley said the area was short of bins and the problem was far from being resolved ... and unsatisfactory. He told council, in a letter, the area was still short of bins and needed more to provide comparable bin capacity as was available last Christmas. This would "barely meet public needs," Mr Quigly said. He said the area was short about 11 bins — five yellow metal bins and six single wheelie bins — and couldn't meet proven public needs. Health surveyor John Harmsworth said it was the fourth letter from the group about the area. "Since the first letter was received, regular bin-use surveys have been carried out," Mr Harmsworth said. An inspection was made on November 26, before bins were emptied. Mr Harmsworth described the conditions as "fine and hot, just the weather to draw people to the lake picnic area". He said he found most bins far from being full, some hardly used and others empty. "Two additional bins have been placed in the picnic area and will remain during the holidays," Mr Harmsworth said. "Ample garbage bin volume is available for all persons using the Causeway area. If a need arises for more services, this will be attended to as in other picnic areas in the shire." In a foreshadowed motion, Cr Mario Cresta, said shire clerk Jim Brown should deal with any situations arising during the Christmas break. In seconding the motion, Cr John Dowie said people should ring Mr Brown only if their complaint was genuine. Mr Brown's phone number is 39 3622. Relive the past at —

Family and friends travelled from Brisbane, Mackay, Emerald, Townsville and Mitchell to attend the wedding. After a honeymoon in Hawaii the couple will settle live at the Coast.

Groups seeks ideas for bored children TWO Queensland Recreational Council officers will meet Emu Park teenagers and parents at a special meeting on Monday, January 11 to discuss youth recreation needs in future school holidays. Ian Whitehead and Greg Cahill attended the Don Ireland Swimming Complex December meeting to offer help and advice on the proposed pool's construction. "The pool is seen as a meeting place for young people and concern was expressed that until the pool is functioning our teenagers have problems filling in time during the school holidays," Don Ireland Swimming Pool Complex president Yvonne Protheroe said. "We decided to call the meeting and asked Mr Whitehead and Mr Cahill to go along and talk to both teenagers and parents. They know how to plan programmes to make the holidays more fun-filled and enjoyable." If the meeting in the Emu Park CWA Hall on January 11 at 7pm is successful a youth group will be formed. It will be autonomous withadult supervision. "Anyone interested in finding out about the meeting or offering help can contact me on 39 6930," Mrs Protheroe said.


Turner for Chairman 1 am standing independent of Groups and Political Parties as I have in Local Government since 1967.'


DEAR ELECTORS, It was interesting to read the other day an item from the Peak Downs Telegram (Clermont 100 years ago) where it said "Council declares war on dogs". After 100 years the community still has the dog problem. My viewpoint on dogs is that it should be the owners' responsibility to see that their animal is looked after, and not annoying neighbours, or roaming the streets. I further believe that the desexing of animals should be encouraged, and a blitz on dogs now and then, should take place. However it is difficult to get people to perform these duties in some areas. Some Local Authorities have run an education programme on dogs which has been a success. ** Emu Park is an area on the Coast which has been fortunate to have the asset of Bell Park. It is a pity Yeppoon has missed this opportunity over the years. However, I believe more should be done in this area and it will be my intention to look at Parks and Recreation areas. In the meantime the citizens of Emu Park have a great _ asset. The community there needs strong representation assistance by council to attract more people in the area. It will be my intention to treat Emu Park as part of the wonderful Capricorn Coast and give my loyalty and support in whatever way possible for its development. The swimming pool complex is a move in the right direction. *** It was good to see council, after a number of years, start work on footpaths in Yeppoon. A programme each year should be mapped out for both Emu Park and Yeppoon, as it will take many years and a lot of money to achieve completion. Christmas is once again at our door steps, and it is my 31st Christmas on the Coast. Every effort should be made to create a Christmas atmosphere. It will be my intention to have council, service- clubs, chamber of commerce, and other organisations join together in a programme in 1988 to have Christmas decorations, of a permanent type, that can be erected in both towns to create a better atmosphere for locals and tourists during our festive season. The decoratione I have in mind can be used each year. May I take this opportunity to wish each and everyone a Merry Christmas, and a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year.

Compassionate Friends help A GROUP of Capricorn Coast,Inothers who found they could talk about the loss of familymembers have decided others who've experienced similar losses could benefit from joining their group. The mothers have banded together to form The Compassionate Friends for Bereaved Parents. It is a support group for parents who have lost a son or daughter. One mother said there was a need for a group of this kind, especially for the mothers. "Fathers are welcome to attend the meetings but they're usually working when the group meets during the day," she said. "We found talking and discussing the different problems we have helps us cope with the part of our life which died upon our child's death. "It was something I imagined could happen but it was 1000 times worse when it actually did," the mother said. The mothers found they could safely talk about something which many friends and family were afraid to do. "It's not their fault; they just don't know how a person will react and believe not talking about something will help heal the wounds," the mother said. "Unfortunately it does the opposite. The grief manifests itself because a part of our life dies and until we reinvest an interest in society we need to let out that grief. "Crying is an acceptable and healthy way of expressing grief but. having others who have experienced and are experiencing what you feel, helps the healing process." Meetings Are informal affairs, held about twice a month, and have been going since about August. The group has decided to branch out and would like people in a similar position to contact them by phoning Eleanor on 39 6152. The group would also like to publicise they are available, if ever someone loses a child. One mother said the group had reached across "barriers" including religion, race, economic class or ethnic group, and are bound by a common bond to talk about or just listen to others experiencing the same feelings. Some families are totally wrecked through the death of one member, but others close ranks. "There is tremendous strength and support, and a lot of love, in my family which wasn't there before," a mother said. The group also is self-supporting. Meetings are held at different homes. The mothers say it was good to have a group for people to turn to and to know there is some place to get support and help from people in similar situations.

ABOVE: Winners at the Pacific Hotel charity day put their best bowls forward. Seventy visitors and members raised $900 for the Special Education Unit at Yeppoon State Primary School. Teacher-in-charge Warren Wendt (pictured secondfro/iii right) was on hand to play bowls and accept the cheque on behalf of the unit. From left Yeppoon Bowls Club president Tom Roos and winners, Eddie Engel, Ian Brazier and Paul Nugent (also Pacific Hotel representative).

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT AT BOWLS THE giving spirit during the annual Pacific Hotel sponsored Bowls day was highlighted when Yeppoon Bowls president Tom Roos announced $900 had been raised for charity. The gala bowls day attracted about 70 nonplaying and playing bowlers who battled it out on the green for victory. The day's winners were Ian Brazier, Paul Nugent, Ken Moore and Eddie Engel. However, no player forgot the reason for the day's play and before the winning bowlers were announced, this year's nominated charity was presented with the cheque. Mr Roos announced that this year's charity was the Special Education Unit at Yeppoon State Primary School. Teacher-in-charge Warren Wendt, who played during the day, told the players what the unit did when accepting the cheque.

BOXING DAY MEET ON GRASS YEPPOON Amateur Racing Club will start racing in earnest on the new grass racing surface on Boxing Day. The club has five scheduled meetings ... Saturday, December 26, New Year's Day, January 5, 13 and 19. Since the club last raced, on August 19, the track was seeded and a manual watering system installed using water from the large dam created by the excavation work carried out to provide the base for the upgraded track and drainage. Out of a mixture of grasses used to provide cover and mulch for the base surface cover of couch, the early growing grasses have done their job and the couch and is now really taking off. Club officials are confident that the couch will stand up to the stress of racing best for the area and being a quick coverer through its runner aspect of growth will repair the normal wear and tear of racing. Once again the .YARC will clash with the Rockhampton Jockey Club on Boxing Day and the next meeting on New Year's Day, but for the first time since the club resumed racing on September 23, 1981, the Boxing Day meeting will be the first held on a Saturday. To minimise the wear and tear to the grass in the early stages, all five meetings will comprise four races of the same classes and also be over • the same short distances. The programmes for the five meetings, the remainder of which are scheduled for Tuesday January 5, Wednesday January 13 and Tuesday January 19 are: Maiden Handicap (900m), Wallet Handicap (1000m), Purse Handicap (1200m) and Country Syakes (1200m). The first race on Saturday will be the Boxing Day Country Stakes for $3000 in prize money and will have a twilight meeting starting time of 3pm. The remaining races at this meeting will follow at 40 minute intervals.

Mr Wendt said the unit was available to any Coast child. "The unit helps any Capricorn Coast child older than six weeks," Mr Wendt said. "It doesn't matter if the disability is mental or physical, every child has the right to attend the unit. The unit's youngest is now four but some have been attending the unit since they were three. "They can be referred to the unit by doctors or parents needing a little help." Mr Wendt said not only was the unit used by the Special Education children but also by the students at Yeppoon State-Primary School. "Some use it for cooking but others use it for a wide range of activities," he said. "The money will be used to buy educational equipment and teaching aids for the unit."

NEXT MEETINGS: January 1, 5, 13; 19

This week, resident Tyrer Park trainer John Anderson worked two horses around the track to give club officials an indication of how the new grass would stand up. Anderson enjoyed success at last week's midweek meeting at Callaghan Park when Morlock won the final of a three-race programme, the Purse Handicap (1150m), held on the sand track. The committee has decided to do away with the fluctuation service as over the years this has not been completely satisfactory ... for midweek meetings the fluctuations have only been available from an unofficial source. The committee is confident that the TAB read-outs and satellite coverage will provide patrons with a much more accurate guide to the odds available. Attractions for patrons attending on Saturday will include free draught beer for an hour from 11.30am and a competition for a weekend for two on Great Keppel Island.

Atkinson in RU training squad CAPCOAST Rugby Union player John Atkinson of Yeppoon has been selected in the Queensland Country Rugby Union off-season training squad. The 27 man training squad has representatives from all Queensland country areas. The selectors have chosen the strong squad' with a view to establishing Queensland Country's place on the International touring teams' Australian itinerary. The approach is new and is designed to gain higher recognition for the Queensland Country Team in all facets of fitness, strength and skill. Apart from three games against New South Wales Country, the annual City v Country match and against England, the players will be in line for selection in the Queensland B team to play NSW B, England and All Blacks. The squad has been selected with an emphasis on youth and talent. To assist Country coach Steve Rowley to evaluate the progress of his players a camp has been scheduled for January 23 in Rockhampton.

WHEN you're short of itemslor a column along comes something that makes everything worthwhile ... this week it was Superman. Now we all know the Capricorn Coast is headed for big things, but who would have believed we could become known as "Metropolis" ... the home of Superman? Last. Friday, a phone rang at City Desk and hardbitten office girl Sandra Mackie answered with a "yep". Marie Savage, (of Shells and Gifts fame) spoke: "Superman is visiting next door if you want to get a picture of him? Sandra, accustomed to calls of this nature, handed over the phone to Superman's girlfriend Cathy (Lois Lane) Logan, who thinks she works on the Daily Planet instead of the Capricorn Coast Mirror. Using her wrist radio (she puts her hand to her mouth and shouts) she called "Old Baldy". Acting quickly, she put together the rest of the Mirror team present (Suzy and Rhett) and they headed off to Nick Callianiotis' downtown Metropolis office. They rushed into the building and, lo and behold, there was Superman, complete with red tights and flowing blue cape. He was bulging in all the right places and, emblazoned on his chest, was a huge gold S. Superman, showing the shyness that made his exploits famous, ducked behind a partition ... but it was too late. He had been spotted ... and besides, it's the Silly Season, and what could be more appropriate than a photo of Stperman coming out of a phone booth. Of course, that meant a trip across the road. Superman walked (allowing for the slower Earthlings) ... and literally stopped the traffic. Luckily the phone box was empty and he was able to oblige with a series of unforgettable pictures ... especially the ones where he lifted a girl high above his head. Then it was back to the party at Nick's where our Caped Crusader revealed all ... well, almost all. It turns out he wasn't the real Superman at all ... he's John Hacker, who, because he's involved with the Rainbow Video and the Golden Phoenix, believes he's doing a job far beyond the ability of mortal men. As a result, he took to calling himself Superman. Because it was his birthday last Friday, someone got the bright idea of buying him a Superman suit. He tried it on, they pinched his clothes ... and he spent the afternoon as Superman! * * *

Well, since it's still the Silly Season, let's go the whole hog. Last week, there was an item about a big do at Capricorn Iwasaki's for a visiting baseball team. Held on the lawn, by the huge pool, under a tropical night sky, it seemed inappropriate that so many guests wore ties and, wait for it ... coats. Isn't it time, in a world where there are Nuclear-Free Zones and Smoke-Free Zones, that we, on the Capricorn Coast, declared our coastal strip a Tie-Free Zone? Handled properly, with a declaration by someone like the shire chairman, a Member of Parliament or a tourist group head, the declaration could get a swag of publicity ... and put us on the map for the best of reasons. Why should men have to wear ties ... after all, women liberated themselves from bras years ago! * * *

AND, as the year draws to a close, it's time to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas. Greetings are extended, in particular, to the so very many people who provide this column. Some do it willingly (as long as they're dobbing in a mate) ... and some, perhaps a little unwillingly, by getting caught out in certain situations that make other people laugh. Christmas is a time of reaching out to friends, forgetting differences, and sharing goodwill ... let's all do our best to make others feel welcome, in our shops, our accommodation houses, our workplaces, in our homes. After all, it is Christmas...
