LIVINGSTONE Shire residents will be voting by postal ballot in all four divisions for the March 19, 1988 triennial elections. Council received notification from the State Government that the election will be a full postal ballot, by order-in-council dated December 26, 1987. The voters' roll, compiled by the State Electoral office, closed on December 31, 1987. The divisional rolls for the shire will be checked by Livingstone's returning officer shire clerk Jim Brown before ballot papers are mailed to electors. All votes must be returned to the Livingstone Shire Council by 10am on election day ... March 19, 1988. Voting is compulsory. If your name is not on the voters' roll you will be able to obtain a ballot paper after making the appropriate written application and declaration to the returning officer. Ballot papers will be posted to voters as soon as possible after nominations close at noon on February, 8 in the shire clerk's office. Candidates' names and details will be sent to Brisbane for printing and it is expected that the

ballot papers will be sent to electors by the end of February. Council decided that a combined ballot paper for the 12 members and chairman be printed to simplify voting and lessen informal voting. The ballot papers will be different colours for each division. Electors will be asked to elect one chairman for the whole shire, two councillors in division one, five in division two, three from division three and two in division four. The shire clerk expects to advertise the election notice calling for nominations on January 20 with nominations closing on February 8 at noon. Candidates will pay 5200 to nominate. A Freepost envelope will be enclosed with the ballot paper. All of the envelopes posted will be kept in a locked wooden or metal ballot box at Yeppoon Post Office and will be collected by the returning officer at 10am on

election day. The returned unclaimed ballot papers will be kept in a separate locked box. Ballot papers arriving after that date will not be counted in the election results. Where ballot papers are posted, but returned unclaimed, they will be held by the returning officer, who will endeavour to locate the elector. Electors who do not receive a ballot paper within a week of them being posted (advertised public notices will advise this date) should contact returning officer Jim Brown or assistant Kev Lloyd at the shire administration centre, 39 3388 and they will be given assistance. There will also be a locked ballot box at the shire office and all hand delivered ballot paper envelopes should be given to the receptionist who will note the date and time of receipt prior to the envelope being placed in the box.

If any elector is unable to mail the ballot paper to arrive in time they can deliver it to the shire office locked ballot box until 10am on election day. Counting of votes will start after 10am on election day in the presence of candidates and scrutineers. All ballot papers are first checked against the voters' rolls and for any informalities. The counting at the shire office will continue until all votes have been counted. If there is a clear result the new members and chairman will be known during the Saturday evening. No envelopes.will be opened before 10am on election day. "The election process is an open administrative function designed to allow the public to put into office those persons whom the majority of electors choose to govern the affairs of the local authority for the ensuing three year period... Shire clerk Jim Brown said. "These processes are designed such as not to knowingly disenfranchise any person and it is most unfortunate when people fail to vote or vote informally and therefore disenfranchise themselves.-

THE Capricorn Coast had a busy and quiet Christmas-New Year holiday. Police, ambulance and fire services reported calm and quiet for the festive season with no accidents and one grass fire. "Drink driving was right down, so motorists must be thinking before driving," Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer said. "There were just a few persons who didn't think of others, but overall, we are very pleased." Ambulance superintendent Geoff Reynolds said the holiday break had been quieter than normal. "It's been pretty good and exceptionally quiet," he said. "We have had quite a number of snakes brought into the centre from around the Yeppoon area ... taipans, brown and a sea snake." The fire brigade attended one grass fire and stood by for the Livingstone bicentenary fireworks display on New Year's Day. Yeppoon Hospital had a busy holiday season with 30 patients on Boxing Day morning. "Christmas-New Year is our busiest time of the year," medical superintendent Dr John Blenkin said. Two people were treated for blue bottle stings. Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and

Industry president Andrew McClelland said it was a very successful Christmas. "The only problem was parking because of the amount of people in the town area," he said. Both tourist organisations reported that visitors were staying for shorter times. "There are more people around because this year Capricorn Iwasaki Resort and Bayview Tower are operating at full strength," Capricorn Tourism Development Organisation Coast branch chairman Hubert Murray said. "Visitors have shortened their stay this year, but the majority of accommodation houses have had no vacancy signs, so there seems to be more holidaymakers around." Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation actiong chairman Laurie Killeen said it had been an unusual Christmas. "There were vacancies early and then everything filled quickly. There are less people with vans and tents, but more passing trade. "We have had only a smattering of southerners and I have noted an absence of the usual large numbers of railway people and miners."

RUTH MILLER has followed a dream for a better life-style for more than a year but has watched that dream turn into a nightmare in the past three months. Her dream was for a home with 180 degree views from Corio Bay to Rosslyn Bay Harbour ... her nightmare is two blocks of land that cost her $30,000 and have no access. Ruth Miller came to the Capricorn Coast from Brisbane "one year and four days ago" seeking away of life that she said was no longer possible in the city. She wanted a home surrounded by plenty of land with sweeping views and quiet, country living. She foundwhat she wanted at Farnborough ... a parcel of steep land with views, rainforest, ferns and waterfalls. In October last year she bought the land ... two eight-acre blocks, for 530,000. She had home plans drawn and immediately organised a bulldozer to start cutting out the home site. Then the track she had been using to reach her land became "awkward" to use. Although this was a setback, she thought all she had to do was approach Livingstone Shire Council and ask it to provide the road that, on the map, provided access to her two blocks. She had no doubts that the road would be provided ... after all, it was drawn in on the map. It was an unnamed, unconstructed, gazetted road. She was quite correct, but council said it had no obligation to provide the road. In fact, under council's existingpolicy, Ruth Miller has to provide the road if she wants access to her land. She learned the road would have to be built to council's specifications ... it couldn't be a track hacked out with a bulldozer; it had to be cleared, formed and drained. After she had done her bit to council's standard, council would accept responsibility for the road and, when fundswere available, gravel and maintain it. She has since learned it would cost her about 5150,000 to provide her own road. In addition, she discovered it would cost a further S15,000 to have electricity connected. Living nearby is division two councillor Bar-

bara Wildin. Ruth Miller took her problems to Cr Wildin and a series of discussions followed. Using information provided, Cr Wildin queried her fellow councillors at two meetings late last year. She was told it was council policy not to provide access to blocks on unconstructed gazetted roads. This is the council's policy and, on the face of it, seems quite reasonable. After all, shire clerk Jim Brown said this week other councils had the same policy for the simple reason that someone seeking provision of an unnamed gazetted road could throw out budget planning. The cost has to be met by some means and, if this unnamed road suddenly had to be provided, it would be at the expense of other ratepayers who also want roads maintained and improved. Ruth Miller also regards this policy as reasonable ... but considers it is unreasonable of council to expect her to pay the entire cost of providing the road when other land-owners would also get access at no cost to themselves. She feels council should build the road, bill her for her share, and bill other land-owners for their share. Cr Wildin said this week she waswell aware of Ruth Miller's plight and sympathised with her ... in fact, she said she hadwarned her not to buy the land until she was guaranteed she had access. "Ruth Miller is not the only person on the Coast with this 'problem," Cr Wildin said. "There's dozens of them." She said council had one case in Cliff Street where rates had been paid on a block of land for 30 years but no road had been provided. "There are cases where people have not only been paying rates on land with no access, they have also been paying road levies," Cr Wildin said. She said all may not be lost because she succeeded in having shire engineer Pat Murphy being asked to prepare a report which should be available at the next council meeting. "I asked for him to look at the situation and

report back to the table," Cr Wildin said. The only answer for land owners in this situation seems to be for council to change it policy ... and, with an election just weeks away, that could happen. Ruth Miller this week took her problem to Jim Turner, the man who has already announced he is standing for the job as shire chairman. Apparently he told her he would take up her problem with State Government Minister Vince Lester, who lives at Emu Park. Meanwhile Ruth Miller said she would continue to live in a caravan at the foot of her steeply-sloping land ... without electricity and without water. In Brisbane, she has a "comfortable home with a huge swimming pool" at Clayfield. That's the home left for the Capricorn Coast's lifestyle ... "but I won't sell that home until I have built a new one here," she said. Obviously at the end of her tether with her problems, the Coast could lose Ruth Miller. I don't want to leave," she said. "Everything I have ever wanted is available on those two blocks of land." A Chinese Manipulative Therapist, Ruth Miller had hoped to establish a place for treating patients on the land. "There's 16 acres in all and it's ideal for people seeking treatment," she said. "There's six to eight acres of rainforest and four acres of ferns ... and there's waterfalls that are only trickling at the moment, but locals have told me they can be heard as a roar from the road when it's raining." While her dream is to live in that picturesque setting, the nightmare is the reality she must face every day ... that it's so close, yet so far.

provided Livingstone Shire Council constructs a parking area and access road. Council also has to carry out management and control of the ramp. The letter has already been sent to council. It confirms that a site inspection was held at Keppel Sands in October which was attended by Keppel Sands Boat Club members Gordon Ohl, Doug Medcraf, council engineering staff member Bob Murray and MAritime Services Department staff member Tom Mylne. A suitable site was found for construction of a half-tide or beach access ramp. Council has been asked to submit a proposal for construction of a beach access ramp which the department will consider. Mr Hinton said the Harbours Corporation was funded by small boat owners and had about Si million available annually for jobs such as the Keppel Sands boat ramp.

MICKEY 12 Hair Design Meet Salon Owner Michelle Willsteed MICHELLE WILLSTEED is no newcomer to the hairdressing industry. She started her career at 15 in Auckland, New Zealand. After completing her training she moved to Sydney where she worked for two years improving her styling and techniques. Michelle moved to Rockhampton in 1980 and worked for two major salons before buying her own salon in 1982. She started with one apprentice and built up the salon to a very successful business over a five-year period. To ensure her clients receieved the best of attention and service, and the latest techniques, Michelle attended various schools in Sydney and Brisbane where she kept abreast with the many changes in the industry. Michelle believes it is very important to keep up training throughout a hairdressing career ... "one never stops learning," she said. Michelle has employed local staff in her latest venture, Mickey Q Hair Design at 50 James Street, Yeppoon. Cassandra Bean, who is well versed with the industry, is one staff member. "Cassandra can assist you in your choice of style, colour, and every need for your hair," Michelle said. "Mickey Q Hair Design is a new age in hairdressing. The Salon gives a feeling of Space and Freedom to make your visit comfortable and pleasant. "We believe in professionalism and a very high standard of work. "We use and recommend only the best Schwarzkopf Products, giving all clients the best quality products and service they deserve."

We want our clients to discuss their requirements as far as style suitability and colour choice," Michelle said. I ...„,016"We discuss how to maintain your hair at home between Salon visits because we are well aware that home hair care has become such an important part of quality hairdressing."

'I am standing independent of Groups and Political Parties as I have in Local Government since 1967.' CR JIM TURNER DEAR ELECTORS, Let us celebrate 1988 and make Council work together with the Community. I have categorically said that I am a strong supporter of Open Council. By this, Council would still deal with certain business in Committee as some matters are personal and confidential and the initial stages, however all Committee reports will be made Public and available to the Press. Reportswill contain the precis of the letter written into Council, with the Committee's recommendation. This report, at a general meeting, will be perused page by page with all Councillors having the right to discuss further the recommendation, and object to same if so desired in front of the Press. My system is a completly different system than the one which someone moves the recommendation, it is seconded, and carried by the majority. This system is referred to the "numbers game" and is not open Council. Is this the system my opponent is using, and then putting to the constituents these words, "Don't you think Council is working better". Let me say here and now, my opponent has been a Councillor of Livingstone Shire for a few years, why has he not used his influence as a Councillor or a prospective Leader to have the Livingstone Shire Council work better long ago. A Chairman has only one extra Vote, a very little majority. I urge the Electors to take this into account when choosing your Chairman in the forthcoming Elections. Why take the risk of allowing your Council to continue with its problems. Your sitting Chairman has been part of the "Livingstone Shire Circus" and should not be allowed to get off the hook. To further emphasise the point in my approach to sitting Councillors, I have already been promised the support of the majority of them when I am elected. May I reiterate my Policy — Open Council in the real term. By Open Council you solve 90 per cent of your problems. The people out there in the Community have the right to know what is going on. If you elect me you will have that right. Let us make 1988 a new direction for your Council and give me your support in the Ballot Box. My 21 years in Council, 18 years as Chairman, with large scale development, a proven achiever, with an excellent track record, will assist Livingstone to get back on the rails.

Kindest Regards

the record for attendances during the society's 22 year history. There are eight male and six female roles and a great deal of melodious choruswork in the the typical earthy Offenbach style. Orpheus is a rollicking send-up of the traditional Greek myths with all the gods and godesses reduced to the common denominator of basic human urges. The society is looking for people interested in stagework or singing. Further information can be obtained from Peter Green 39 2105.

In the cool, cool, cool of the evening SWIMMING in the cool of the evening is available to all Coast residents and visitors. Olympic Pool lessee David Milburn has been keeping the pool open until 8.30 every night so that patrons can take advantage of a swim and some relaxation after work. "We open the pool from 6am seven days a week and decided that some people might enjoy a swim to cool down after a day's work," Mr Milburn said. There are full kiosk facilities, swimwear on sale and all the usual swimming accessories. "The charge is 60 cents for children and adults' entry fee is one dollar and you can stay all day."

His parents are Brenda and Ray Barry and he has two sisters Clare (4) and Ellen (20 months) and a brother Damien (6). Michael is a true-blue Aussie because his mother says he was conceived on the west coast of Australia and born on the east coast.

Mangoes are falling on our heads MANGOES are everyone at the moment ... they are showering down around the Mirror office from our own tree and, unfortunately, we don't have time to eat them. Anyone who would like to eat them is welcome to pick whatever they need. We have been assured that our particular variety are quite juicy and very tasty! While on the subject, I like the way Coast children are getting involved in our free enterprise society ... signs advertising mangoes for sale are everywhere. But the most enterprising, at least that I have seen, has to be the three children operating in Braithwaite Street, Yeppoon, on Wednesday who stood near the kerb holding up signs to passing motorists advising them they had mangoes for sale. That's what small business is all about ... getting the message across and getting sales!

WHAT IS TAE KWON-DO? Tae Kwon-Do, the Korean art of self-defence, had its inception over 1300 years ago during the turbulent Silla Dynasty. Since then, TKD has become the most practised martial art in the world. Perhaps the reason for its popularity is its unique style, combining dynamic explosive kicks that are the same time, graceful and aesthetic with practical linear hand techniques. Perhaps it's because of its intense, unyielding mental discipline, and the wisdom within its philosophy. Whatever the reason, TKD has proven to be one of the most effective of the martial arts. Now this ancient art has been adopted by Australians and hurled into a new dimenSion of efficiency and practicality. Cheah TKD Academy has evolved an effective fighting system tailored for today's needs, while retaining the high philosophical and moral values of traditional TAE KWON-Do.

Emu Park's athletic duo put in top performance ATHLETIC duo Bev and Barry Laundry put in some world class performances at the recent 1987 Drake International VII World Games in Melbourne. They later repeated top performances at the Australian Masters held in Tasmania. Mr and Mrs Laundry were the only Capricorn Coast representatives to travel to the games, which attracted 4810 athletes from around the world, and started on Saturday, November 28 and finishing, December 6. It was the first Veterans Games the Laundrys had entered and each entered the maximum number of events possible which was seven. Mrs Laundry was placed in the top 10 for three of her events, although, she didn't win a medal. Mrs Laundry was fourth in the 1500m and cross country 10km. She also came fifth in the marathon. Mrs Laundry repeated her performances in Tasmania but bettered times and position to win four silver and one gold medal. She was second in the 800m, 1500m, 10km road race and triathlon. Mrs Laundry won gold in the 3000m. Mr Laundry who nominated for seven events also was placed fourth in the shot put, discus and triathlon. Mrs Laundry said they would be still trying to recover from the Melbourne Games and wouldn't be in top form but after running in the Melbourne Games on the Sunday she ran the marathon in Tasmania 14 seconds faster. She put the better time down to experience because a number of the runners who ran in Melbourne also made the trip to Tasmania. At the Drake International Games there were 52 countries competing. All over the age of 40, one of the specified requirments to enter the games.

Yeppoon Golf Club opens $14,000 green GOLFERS are in for a treat at Yeppoon Golf Club with two new greens being used and three proposed new greens making the course more competitive. The 12th green was opened on Saturday and club members couldn't wait to pitch a ball onto it and putt out. Club captain Len Lucas was joined by greens director Nobs Drillis, assistant professional David Cardillo, club professional Murray Hodge and curator Ray Beck to "officially open" the green. The ball rolled true, and smoothly, and green number 12 was declared a success. A new green represents a considerable investment. The latest cost 814,000 ... and that's a lot of green fees and membership dues. Nearby to 12 was hole number 10 and the green being prepared there is a beauty. It's a big green with a roll in the middle and a deep bunker to the right. At the moment, it's a sandpit ... but it represents10,000 metres of fill taken from the dam. It's twice as big as the temporary green now being used and, when opened, will be a delight to aim at. The club has plans to change all 18 greens but is now in a period of consolidation. The course has always been a good one and the new greens are only making it better. The new greens are part of a five-year programme but right now the club needs more water. The club's success now, and in the future can be gauged by an expanding junior membership. In fact, so many juniors are turning up for Saturday morning golf that the club has appealed for parents to lend a hand. Juniors play from 7.30am to noon and parents are asked to join their youngsters on their round to show be available if needed. Anyparentswanting to help can turn up and do their bit any Saturday morning.

SINCE the Bicentennial is going to be a year-long extravaganza of Australiana, we may as well get into the mood with this item. Tom Buckton lives in Cobraball Road and, with a house practically smack in the middle of about 100 acres, he and his family (wife Sue and children Cassandra, Michelle and Michael) are quite used to seeing kangaroos andwallabies. In fact, he was saying this week it's quite usual to see dozens of them on the lawn near the house in the moonlight. So, with a view like that, why did he take one to work with him on Monday at Yeppoon Exhausts? Well, because it was holidays, everyone was away for the day from the home and he had this eight inch high wallaby that he had found on the side of the road to look after. There he was, sitting at the back of the workshop holding an Orchy bottle full of milk while the wallaby suckled greedily on a teat. When the wallaby had gulped enough it went for a quick hop around the workshop then was put back into Tom's haversack for the trip home. Tom found the baby inside its dead mother's pouch. The mother was covered with ants (and was probably a little "high") but Tom's one of those blokes who can't pass one by without checking to see whether there's a baby in the pouch. This particular baby was also covered with ants ... they were in its eyes and mouth and it obviously was close to death. Tom brushed away the ants, picked them out of its eyes and took it home. He gave it a drink of milk and it swallowed some, then vomited thq milk and a swag of meat ants. On Monday, just days after that first meeting with Tom Buckton, it's alive and obviously extremely well. He said he wasn't taming it, although it was definitely attached to him, and it was free to go as soon as it could cope for itself. But will life ever be "normal" for the wallaby? "Well, it's got a bit of a problem at home," Tom said. "It knows it's supposed to have a mother but it doesn't seem to know what a mother looks like." The result is that the wallaby "attaches" itself to Tom, his wife, their daughters or son ... even a chook wandering loose in the yard. Life in the wilds around Cobraball Road will certainly be an eye-opener when this particular wallaby packs its pouch and heads for the wide open spaces. • • • WOMAN walks into Yeppoon garage and waits her turn patiently at the counter. As soon as there's a lull in the conversation she says "did I leave a tractor here just before Christmas?" Stunned garageman stammered that, no, he didn't recall anyone dropping off a tractor. Woman then asked who else in town might have her tractor. Garageman rattled off a few names but woman didn't recall any. She got directions to one that sounded promising and set off. Hope she found her tractor ... must be a heck of a thing • • • to lose!!! SILLY Season continues ... hear tell Yeppoon Golf Club is missing five pins and flags. Now aside from the fact that these pins (sticks, call them what you will) cost $80 each and therefore represents a considerable loss to the club, what the devil would someone do with a flag and stick from a golf club? To top it off, these particular pins happen to be callibrated, which makes them even more valuable). Anyway, the club would like them returned ... pronto. If the pins, complete with flags, "just happen to turn up," the club executive is prepared to forget all about it and get on with playing golf. • • • MORE Silly Season ... a woman living on Barlows Hill is far from pleased with "the community that she lives in". Seems she left• a present for the garbos (garbagemen, not Greta) last Wednesday morning and someone stole it before the garbos arrived. She lives in Strow Street, but it could be awkward to publish the woman's name because sometimes retaliation occurs. Anyway, to the garbos who collect in Strow Street ... you were thought of; unfortunately, someone beat you to it!
