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.
