LIVINGSTONE needs an experienced leader, proven negotiator -- a chairman elected by the people for the people. I will strive for better local government by ensuring: ■ Accountability of council -- trust -stability -- good public relations s Open council -- team work.





• Support for nursing home -- registered nurse daycare -- other specialists. • Apply for grants under Queensland Local Government Housing Programme to construct better standard accommodation for residents and youth at lower rental costs, also emergency housing (Government funding -- not ratepayers). Belyando and Rockhampton City already have grants. • Strongly negotiate for funds to implement the Groyne Proposal Crossing etc., Causeway and Kinka Beach. This project will enhance the environment -- development and attract tourism to this popular area. Dredging would be required. This is a must for the future of this attractive area.

Two US students on Coast from Youth For Understanding group TWO Youth for Understanding international exchange students started Year 12 at Yeppoon High School on Wednesday. For Vicki McLouth of Shelby, Michigan, and Nicolle Gregory of Salt Lake City, Utah, it's the start of a full year and a half year of learning about Australia and Australians. Vicki, who's staying for a year with the Bergman family of Emu Park, has already decided she wants to stay ... "I'm going to chain myself to the Singing Ship." Sera Bergman is particularly interested in Vicki's stay because she leaves Emu Park in June to spend a year in the United States, also as a YFU exchangee. Fifteen-year-old Sera ("I'm 16 this year") is also obviously happy at the prospect of having an "older sister" for six months. Vicki's home town, Shelby, has a population of 1500 so, in many ways, life at Emu Park and on the Coast will not come as a shock. There are farms around Shelby and it has one of two artificial diamond manufacturing plants in the US. She lives in the town and her father is a foreman with a construction company. Shelby has about 15 shops, which includes two grocery stores, and the nearest town is Meskegon, about 50km away. Meskegon has the nearest movie theatre and a major mall. When Vicki returns to the US next year she will have one semester of high school (four months) to complete then she will take a course at college. She did not know what courses she would be taking at Yeppoon High School this year but said they would count toward her final year at home. Last year, she studied English, Trigonometry, Chemistry, US History, Computer Programming and Band. Band is a subject she would like to follow up in Yeppoon. She started playing the trumpet but switched to the French Horn ... and is looking for one to play while in Australia. Band is definitely a popular subject ... her school had 400 students; and 72 of them played in the school band. American school life is different. The days starts at 8.35am and the first subject, each day, is English. There is no morning break. Classes are con-

tinuous until lunch ... and that lasts 35 minutes. Then it's back to classes until 2.55pm. American schools start their year in September. There's a four-day (two school days plus the weekend) break for Thanksgiving late in November (the last Thursday of the month); two weeks off for Christmas then a threemonth summer vacation from the end of May. There are also two or three "snow days" when weather conditions close the school. For Vicki, the idea of wearing a school uniform is strange. But she's looking on the bright side ... "Now I won't have to worry about what outfit to wear each day." But uniforms are nothing new to Nicolle she has come to Australia from Judge Memorial, a private Catholic school where uniforms are compulsory. After living in Salt Lake City, a city of more than 1 million people, Nicolle finds Yeppoon "very small". Still, it was 12 hours of continuous driving from her home to the California beaches ... and the Coast's beaches are a lot closer. She is only staying for six months because she wants to completed her final year of high school in America from the start of the school year. She then intends taking college courses in communications and broadcast journalism. She has a background in the media ... her father was Western States head of Cable TV in America until he started his own magazine called Profiles of Utah People. Nicolle is staying with the Odells of Yeppoon and must feel quite at home because her mother is a teacher and her host father, Brett Odell, is a Yeppoon High School teacher and his wife works in the school's office. Under the YFU scheme, 130 students from all over the world have been given the chance to spend time learning about another country. The Capricorn Coast must consider itself particularly lucky winning two of those 130 and having an Emu Park girl heading off in June this year. The scheme is open to all students and details are available from Japanese Language teacher John Spencer or Val Odell at Yeppoon High School.

The Rowe findings - different views of justice and democracy. Cr Giorgi said the committee's findings were an "absolute disgrace". "It was obvious to me when our decision to suspend the engineer was overturned what the outcome of the enquiry would be," she said. "That was the sad day for democracy." (Morning Bulletin, 24 Sept., 1985) The decision was reached by a properly established Committee of Enquiry, in accordance with the provisions of the Local Government Act....We said in an editorial on June 28 that this enquiry was in the interests of everyone concerned. We said then -- and we stick by it — that it was only common justice for Mr Rowe, and that it was the best course of action for the council and its ratepayers. (Editorial, Morning Bulletin, 25 Sept. 1985) Livingstone's Cr Cresta, who has been accused in the Rowe Report of being party to a personal "vendetta" against shire engineer Mr Tony Rowe, believes the term has only been used because his name is Mario Luigi Cresta. Cr Cresta said the allegation was "bordering on getting on to you about your ancestry." (Morning Bulletin, 30 Oct. 1985) The recent attacks on the integrity of the officials of the enquiry has bordered on contempt of the commission. Because the required answers did not bob up, those apwrong pointed by the government have done it all (M. Webb letter, Morning Bulletin, 19 Nov. 1985) On Chairmanship training/and then how to ignore a chairman's ruling. I offer as Chairman: ... Five year's training in meeting procedure and control. (John Bowen, shim chairman election Invchure, 1985) The motion had been put and carried and (chairman) Cr Wall said the debate was closed, requesting Cr Bowen to resume his seat. Cr Bowen continued speaking while Cr Wall twice asked him to sit down. He then ordered Cr Bowen to leave the meeting room because he was interfering with the orderly conduct of the meeting. (Morning Bulletin, 19 Aug. 1982) On job satisfaction. (Headline) "Council workers on verge of strike." Livingstone Shire office workers soon could be forced into industrial action because of contim. al harassment by some councillors, a union spokesman warned yesterday. Municipal Officers Association State secretary Mr Ray Selby said the council's 52 M.OA. members were under extreme pressure and any hostile action by the council could cause a walkout. (Morning Bulletin, 18 Match, 1986.) More than a third of Livingstone Shire Council's office staff have resigned in the past 12 months. Shire chairman Cr Lindsay Hartwig yesterday confirmed figures showing about 14 officers and clerks had left the 36-member staff since the new administration was elected. (Morning Bulletin, 13 March, 1986.) It was too late for Livingstone Shire councillors to talk to staff about problems....Thc only answer now is to "sack the council". Tricia Datiras, a clerk who left this week after seven-and-a-half years working for the council, said this as "farewell" to the job is most reluctant to leave,..Miss Datiras said she, and other staff, believed there was a "hit list"..."There's a hit list all right. We haven't seen it, but it exists." (Minot; 8 Mairh, 1986.) On "disintegration".

He said he had not been told why the council had been sacked but "the fact that so many employees resigned" would have been a major factor. "While the council was disintegrating like that, the council wasn't getting any output from staff." (Cr Harwig, Minot; 29 March, 1986). AUTHORISED: J. CHAPMAN. MAIDA ST. YEPPOON.

Timbs says Hinton snubbed him over nursing home talks invite

*ABOVE: Bicentennial Master of Ceremonies Don Knowles dressed on Australia Day to remind us how lucky we are that fashions have changed. He showed his majestic style during the proceedings and kept order in the large crowd.

CHAIRMAN candidate David Timbs said this week Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton had deliberately snubbed him by not inviting him to a meeting on a proposed Capricorn Coast nursing home. The meeting was scheduled to be held on Thursday at the Livingstone Shire Council chambers. Mr Timbs, late Wednesday afternoon, was still waiting for an invitation although he knew of several people who had been invited. Mr Timbs, the Capricorn Coast ALP president, is also convenor of the Livingstone Shire Aged Care Committee ... a committee formed at a public meeting late last year to investigate preparation of a submission towin approval for a nursing home. "I believe Mr Hinton has deliberately snubbed me because I have announced I am standing for the chairmanships' he said. "Yet, when I was elected convenor of the aged care committee last year, Mr Hinton assured me he would not politicise the need for a nursing home." Mr Timbs said he understood Mr Hinton had called a meeting at the council chambers to discuss the nursing home with the State Department of Health under secretary, and with a Dr Cheong, a senior government geriatrician. "It is likely shire chairman Cr John Bowen will attend and I expect representatives of meals on wheels, pensioners and other similar groups to also be invited," Mr Timbs said. "When I was first elected convenor, I phoned Mr Hinton and discussed the complexity of the issue. I spoke of the need for Commonwealth, State and Local Government co-operation. "Mr Hinton assured me that he would not politicise the issue. At that time, he appeared confused about the difference between a hostel for the aged, a retirement complex and a nursing home." Mr Timbs said he had heard Thursday's meeting, called by Mr Hinton, was going to discuss aged care needs ... "and still, he was talking about hostels, not nursing homes". "I must emphasise that nursing homes are approved, and funded, by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Community Services," Mr Timbs said. "What Mr Hinton appears to be talking about is not what the Coast requires."

Mr Timbs said even though he had been snubbed, he would maintain his commitment to work for a nursing home. "As I said last week, I want to convince the council to throw its weight behind securing a nursing home for the Coast," he said. "It's too late for Cr Bowen to do this ... he's had his chance and let it go. But he will no doubt make appropriate noises after Thursday's meeting." Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said late Wednesday afternoon "Mr Timbs was discussed today and is being invited to the meeting". "I felt. initially that being a candidate for the chairmanship, it was not appropriate that he be at the meeting," Mr Hinton said. "But I have changed my mind and he is being invited. He will get his invitation tonight (Wednesday)." . Mr Hinton also said he did not want his "initiatives with the State Health Department to become a council election football".

took place in the last week of the campaign. Mr Timbs apparently as Mr Wright's protege offered to chair a community committee to work for a nursing home on the Capricorn Coast in a blaze of publicity and self promotion. To date, six months after Mr Timbs offered his services nothing has happened. This it appears is the only community project that Mr Timbs has been involved in despite his constant criticism of other people's achievements. He has done nothing for the Capricorn Coast. Having failed to perform, Mr Timbs is now advocating pushing the nursing home project onto the council. After his lack of action he is trying to abandon his only community endeavour. This political aspirant is loaded with political propaganda, extremely quick with criticism yet when on test himself proved to be a total nonperformer. I expect to be accused of being political but since Mr Timbs is trying to dump the nursing home project on the council I consider my comment must be made. - Garth Brownsdon, PO Box 286, Yeppoon.

OVER the last 15 years as a resident, • the writer has watched with interest the transformation of Livingstone Shire Council through various stages. From my viewpoint, it has changed first from a body whose policies and decisions appeared to be dictated largely by its permanent staff, through periods of turbulence when conflict of factions among the elected members and a distressing profusion of litigation impaired its operation, to the situation which has prevailed over the last 18 months or so, when it has at last shown an ability to work together, both members and staff, with a greater degree of cooperation and efficiency. Chairmen have come and gone over this period, and my own past experience as a chairman and director in industry leads me to believe that the behaviour of any such body is greatly influenced by the personality and method of approach of its chairman. Here it should be noted that we still have, with one expection, the same council members whose ability to quarrel led to such adverse publicity two years ago. While specific allegations, such as those raised by Mr Rowe, still require answers which can only be given by those with the necessary detailed information, I feel that recognition of the performance of the present chairman is due, and that the electors of the shire, whatever their attitude may be in respect of individual councillors, should consider most carefully their choice of chairman, lest an unwise change return us to the less desirable conditions of the pasi. J N V Stephens, Dunster Heights, Mt Lizard.


ELECTORS of DIVISION ONE Livingstone Shire Council Budget:


Lack of action I really must comment on recent statements by the ALP Capricorn Coast branch president and self-appointed ALP candidate for Broadsound, Mr Timbs, on proposed plans for a nursing home. In the 1984 federal election campaign Keith Wright gave a committment to work for a nursing home. In the 1987 federal election campaign Mr Wright was accused of not honouring this committment. He then called an urgent meeting of interested citizens which by a remarkable piece of timing

What I require from a budget is that, firstly, it provides for a balanced programme of works essential for your welfare. Secondly,that the rates and charges necessary to carry out the programme are not burdensome and within the capacity of you ,the ratepayers, to pay. Having before me a copy of the Shire budget, I am at a loss to find the true facts of debts due to our Local Authority at the 30th June, 1987. Don't Be Misguided, you need to know the true facts.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Sold a pup? SHIRE chairman aspirant David Timbs has put the cat among the pigeons with his call for Tony Rowe's legal expenses to be paid by the present council. Probably his argument is correct but why should the ratepayers be paying at all? Why not those who carried on the vendetta to the bitter end? Perhaps if the councillors were sued they may be covered by an insurance policy that was in existence. Hopefully that has not been axed in the name of efficiency and cost cutting. Of course the insurance company will fight tooth and nail before paying out if they can find a flaw in the proposition. It would be great if we could be told officially what the exercise has cost so far and what the ultimate result might be. Of course if this matter ends up in a court of law again and council (we the ratepayers) lose. There is no saying what that figure might end up being. What say there is a judgement against us with costs and payment made for loss of professional standing, personal and family grief? We have seen some pretty high judgements for damages handed down by courts. We would have hoped that sanity had prevailed but it could well be that the ratepayers have been sold a pupand the time for rational1

ity has long since passed. The legal expenses may be paid and we the ratepayers will have forked out close to $300,000. Justifying that expenditure would have to be pretty difficult. There should be some hard thinking by voters in the coming election on this issue for sure. I for one am not impressed about paying for something that has no return in it for the suffering ratepayers. Maurie Webb, 38 Cliff Street, Yeppoon.

IT would seem, that now is the time for our Livingstone Shire councillors, to speak out via the news media and at community meetings and tell the people of the many achievements over the past 18 months. How much the whole council, the councillors, staff, and advisors, have accomplished. It would seem that what was possible, has been done and they are now tackling all that which was declared to be impossible. For a few examples. Our council has supported the concept for a National Park, the Emu Park lagoon, the native garden at Lammermoor, continuing to improve our roads and walkways. Having installed the parking bays and ramps for the disabled, and now we are assured of a clean water supply to the business and urban area this year. It is past time that negativity towards our Shire and its residents stopped. The damage that these knockers are doing to local business and tourism is just so unreal. To learn of the extent of the damage being done, just ask our local business people. Is it true, that prior to each monthly council meeting the full agenda, including the financial statement, is given to the news media, and that this agenda is the same as that each councillor has, at the council meeting? M McManus, PO Box 640, Yepppoon.

Recipe for life IN the last couple of issues of this paper, this column has been replete with "bad news" and negativity. It's quite obvious there's an election in the offing. As a relative newcomer to Yeppoon, I admit to being absolutely besotted by this "little touch of paradise". There are perfectly obvious signs of good works going on such as: improvements to the foreshore area, ramps(!) in abundance (for the disabled, and mothers with prams and strollers), and seemingly continuous roadworks. Somebody must be doing something right! In the words of that wonderful old song, why don't we " accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative". It's a good recipe for life! -- Sally Tickle, 16 Salisbury Street, Yeppoon.

RE Livingstone Shire Council. In the Mirror lately there seems to be plenty of critics at work but little credit given. The improvement in the works department is seen in the work done around town in the last 12 months or so; the new bridge on the Rockhampton-Emu Park Road, the new parking area in town. These sorts of things do not just happen, it is brought about by good management and peaceful organisation. The council's last year's credit balance is very creditable. It is easy to have a debit balance, not so easy to have a credit balance. The council seems to be working satisfactorly and trust it can keep up the good work. C A Heaslip.

't am standing independent of Groups and Political Parties as I have in Local Government since 1967.'


DEAR ELECTORS I have spoken very freely on a community development officer, and how that person can work within the community and assist many organisations with submissions and grants. Amongst this important role will be an investigation of what can be done for the youth. This is an area which is easily overlooked, but in society today is very important, as today we have a changing society, one which many of us would not agree, even down to moral issues, however the change is with us and we must see that our youth are not forgotten as they are the mothers and fathers of this great country in the near future. I feel within the community that we would have people, once organised, who could lend a helping hand to see that the type of Blue Light Discoswere run alongwith other forms of entertainment for our youth. One way to easily overcome the problem would be an indoor stadium comprising facilities for various types of indoor sports. A complex such as this would cost an enormous amount of money, however it may be feasible if a study was implemented by the CDO and to draw youth from the Rockhampton area. The success of such a complex is reliant on population., It may be feasible to encourage a private enterprise venture, with assistance from council, State and Federal Governments. If a complex was successful what a great assistance it would be to get our children off the street, and away from other social evils that exist today, also what a great attraction it would be for the Coast. We can all talk about large scale development, and forget about the small issues. In fact more small type development is a great asset to the community, as it generally provides a level of cost that can be afforded, by the lower income earner, and that to me is most important. Kindest Regards, Jim Turner, Livingstone Shire Chairman Candidate. VOTE

Purse returned I WOULD like to use your letter page to thank two people, who I found to be, in one very obliging, the other very honest. I lost over Christmas my change purse. I did not know where, but last week I had a call from the officer-in-charge in Emu Park telling me a Mrs Ewings had found it and handed it in to the police station. You can imagine my surprise as I had given it up for lost. He returned the purse to me also the $30 inside. I can't find Mrs Ewings after much asking around. I would like her if she reads this could she call at Lyn's Beachside Store Emu Park and ask for Shirley ... I would like to thank her. Also for the officer-in-charge the only clue he had in finding me was my ALP membership tickets in the back pocket addressed 39 Garden Street, Blackall. He must have taken the trouble to ring Blackall to find out I lived down here now. I would like to use your page to say thank you Sir, as you must have been very busy over the Christmas and you could have put it aside for a later date. I know I said thank you when you returned the purse, but thank you again. — Shirley Warry, 43 Richard Street, Emu Park.

Tunnel vision

Land conflict THE 1895 government inquiry into Livingstone affairs found that five of the seven councillors who moved for the dismissal of the shire engineer had some connection with land development. The findings also subscribed to the general principal that a conflict of interest exists between a council planning authority (comprising staff and elected members who adopt policy), whose duty it is to protect the public monies and interest, on the one hand, and the land development "lobby", on the other, where maximising personal financial gain is most important. This conflict of interest arises when a councillor is involved in any way with land development. And so we have the cosy situation, generally speaking of course, where a councillor has his project of application considered by his colleagues and fellow developers around the table, even though he himself declares his interest and leaves the room. Of course he knows his colleagues may need their applications approved one day. And in a situation just as bad, the developer councillors sit around and make financial life and death decisions on applications from the outside citizen, a subdivision application or project which may be in direct competition to their own vested interest, often without considering their own pecuniary interest or bias and removing themselves from the room. And yet it appears to happen often in Livingstone. Can you imagine all the Livingstone councillors involved in developing residential land on the Coast, or those selling their past developments, or those acting for persons doing either, getting up and leaving the room when a residential subdivision matter on the Coast was discussed. No, it just doesn't happen. The current council at times would barely have had a quorum. In addition, and generally speaking agdin, there's the perennial problem of councillordevelopers having prior knowledge of new town plans or new projects before their competitors on the outside. When one takes into account the conflict of interest, the amount of controversy in council and newspaper headlines over the last term, it's a mystery to me why vot ers continue to tolerate on council developers and their "running mates". Maybe next time around in March, The voters will be a bit more discerning and selective, and vote such candidates from the chamber. -- John Chapman, PO Box 337, Yeppoon.


I am writing in relation to K Moore's "Festive Season Fantasies" 16 to 22.1.88. Such ideas are not knew to me. I have heard similar attitudes amongst insignificant sections of some university campus', usually confined to the academic "would be if they could be" brigade. I'm still wondering if the essence of the letter was to dazzle us with refined intellect or to show what a grasp he has of matters of vocabulary and syntax. His dissection of parthenogenicity brought fleeting thoughts of a man with extreme tunnel vision. Perhaps someone should inform Mr Moore that in trying to explain a supernatural event in world history with natural logic does not add up, nor will the equation ever add up without the addition of faith. Saint Augustine (354-430 AD) had a similar teething problem, but in time was bright enough to manage peripheral vision. In this brave new world that you suggest we contemplate, where we all function to attention in the name of humanism, will we then find your utopia, Mr Moore? Perhaps you could learn from Sir Thoma Moore's example (the utopian concepts' founder but obviously no relation) who had a far more religiously pure vision than what you suggest, and we all know what happened to him. If you were to spend a little more time ingesting what faith and Christianity are about, rather than skimming across the obvious adulterations adhered to by many people who choose to "abuse" rather than "use" the concepts of Christianity, you may learn a lot more. The world is and always has been filled with cowardly egos and regimes who use religion to maximize their own positions before crawling back under the umbrella of religion itself. The list is endless, Rodrigo Borgia, the inquisitions, the Crusaders and Saracens, the Marcos' etc, etc. How far would you go with your ideas of a world purged of religion? The law as we know it in this part of the world is based on Common Law which is in turn based on Christian ethics as first ratified in 1066 AD. Other countries, predominately in Europe base their laws on the ancient Roman "Civil Laws" which in turn were based on their particular religious ideology. Combining both systems we at least have a world, with all its faults, where one can exist. Shedding all legal and morally inhibiting restraints, (due to their origins) one is left to wonder what a free, logical and enlightened spirit would do. I've heard the "Club of Rome" is big on suggestions these days. One wonders do you have any alternative suggestions Mr Moore? The removal of the religious opiates at least had an angle of reason for Marx and Engles. At the beginning a justifiable idea when the gross inequality of the industrial revolutionised''society is observed. Such ideas in the hands of morally godless men such as Stalin and Chairman Mao Tse Tung's widow might exemplify to you the evidence of an idea gone wrong. At this point in time both Russian and Chinese leaders are making corrections to the extremes of some of their respective ideologies and some areas admitting their extremes have been less than successful. In view of more main stream policies emanating from the above, I wonder if Mr Moore's ideas for our society would be naive enough to believe by removing all religious overtones, men will suddenly be "freed", and share equally, living side by side, without fear, greed, lust and the thousand and one interacting and varying complexities that make up a human being? Summing up. Quote: "It is true, that a little philosophy inclineth man's mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth man's mind about to religion." Frances Bacon. - S Sheppard, Farnborough.

Non-political? I NOTE with interest the claims being made by David Timbs wishing to take over the Chair of Livingstone Shire Council and would like to make some comments. Firstly as ALP president in Yeppoon it is impossible for Mr Timbs to be a non-political chairman. There is no way in the world that the ALP will allow its president to chair a shire council and not be political. He will have to toe the party line or get into trouble with his party. It has been said that the ALP intends to win the seat of Broadsound at the next State election. Do you Mr Timbs, intend to withdraw your political intentions if elected to the Chair of Livingstone?

Youth appeal I WOULD be pleased if you would publish my thoughts on some of the candidates for the forthcoming council election. So far in Emu Park we have had two candidates nominate, both of whom have served extensive terms as councillors elsewhere, and claim to have enormous experience in local government. I should like to point out that both these candidates are retired, and in fact getting on in years. What we need is someone younger with modern ideas, not antiquated ones from the past, and with some energy and get up and go as well.

Ta for tar It's all very well for old men to have dreams of making a useful contribution to the community, and many do just that, but what we really need is someone prepared to take an interest in the future needs of the area and whose age will allow them to be there in years to come. What is the use of electing someone who is already old, and on whose shoulders the term of three years is likely to prove a heavy burden. This area is a haven for retired people, who come here to enjoy their latter years. Let them do that, but we don't have to have a geriatric council; I am sure they mean well, but can't someone younger and like-minded please stand up, or is the Livingstone Shire Council to become an over 65 club for retired councillors. -- Name withheld.

Give team a go THE present team of councillors must be given a full three (3) year term to prove their worth. Much has been achieved since the confrontation period of 18 months ago - the water supply problem is being tackled and we should have clean water about June this year. Yeppoon town is looking a lot better with paving of footpaths, parking at Anzac Parade, the nightclub and the council car park adjacent and the four lane highway to Iwasaki's resort. A sizable percentage, normally about 20 to 30 percent of elector are fickle, or to put it better, swinging voters. Whingeing will get us nowhere; we have got to give the present team a go and keep at them to maintain this positive thrust generated in the last 18 months. - I R Milton, 1 Jarman Street, Yeppoon.

Go for Boto's! LAST week I was speaking to a couple of Mt Chalmers people and they complained about roads. We had a long discussion in which I pointed out that in fact much more is paid on roads in that area than is collected in road levies. One of the problems in areas like Mt Chalmers is that even though they are rural, in fact most of the people living there are not farmers but work in town, so want roads of an impossibly high standard considering their rates. Mt Chalmers has a particular problem in that it is served by three entrance roads. It is impossible for council to do capital works on all three. Let me explain the difference between capital works and maintenance. All roads in the Shire are maintained each year to some degree. The engineers juggle with the money available and do the best job they can. Because we live in a cyclone area some of that money has to be held back until after the wet season in case it's needed for urgent repair work. Capital works, on the other hand, are actual new constructions, perhaps upgrading a gravel road, or bitumening part of a road. A great deal of money has been spent on roads in the Cawarral area this term; we had some extra money from the Broadmount sale a couple of years ago and used it on the Dairy Inn Road, and decided to continue with the Dairy Inn Road as our major project this term of council. Mt Chalmers people will have to decide which road they want as their main exit. Council's view is that Boto's Road is the logical one, as it is the only one that is flood-free in a big wet, and when eventually bit umened will join up with bitumen leading both to the Emu Park Road and the Yeppoon-Rocky Road. I can't see Sleipner's having any major capital funds expended on it for years as the works needed would be horrendously expensive and, in bad times Boto's is always available as an exit. The Coowonga Road would have a much higher priority than Sleipner's or the other exit road from Mt Chalmers towards the railway and the Yeppoon-Rockhampton Road.

I READ with interest the remarks by Suzy regarding letters to the editor, especially the fact that you appear to have the same few writers who sound sickeningly negative. My observations over the last two years are that Livingstone Shire Council is finally pulling together as a team - that is not to say that individual members have to agree with one another on everything. Anyone with a reasonable amount of intelligence can see how much good work is being done about the place, and we certainly seem to be getting more for our rate dollars. We are not front page news any more with regular monotony, and all I can say is: "Congratulations to the council and keep going as you are". Why change now when things are getting so much better?

CONGRATULATIONS to the Mirror for publishing the report by Livingstone Shire Council's officers, over the last two editions. The report was not only interesting and informative to read, but also combined an honest analysis of Livingstone Shire's present state of housekeeping, with a postive outlook for our future economy. The report reflects an attitude both progressive and innovative towards work and caring towards the public. Credit must go to all members of our shire council who have worked so hard over the last two years to create the present state of harmony. -- Glynis Cumming, Adelaide Park Road, Yeppoon.

AS A resident of Byfield, and there being one road in and out of the area, I would like to congratulate council on the much improved state of that road. Not only do we have a newly extended section of bitumen, but the main dirt road to Byfield (once referred to as 'a goat track'), and secondary access roads are well-maintained and of a high standard. However the cloud of dust is still there. With the continued positive outlook of council policy in this Shire, we look forward to the next section of bitumen. Could it be between Byfield Creek and Broughton Road, making it safer for children who bicycle and horseride regularly on that section? H L Yaxley, MS 142, Byfield.

We'd love to bitumen every road in the Shire with a magic wand. You should all get on to Member for Capricornia Keith Wright and ask why doesn't the Federal Government give back more of the tax-money they take from you in petrol sales. I suggest Mt Chalmers people get together and agree on the road they want up-graded,. then write to the council about it. It makes it very difficult for us when everyone moans about different roads. I think that in the next term we should perhaps try to put a three metre strip of bitumen right along Boto's and up-grade as we get the money. I do believe that we should attempt to get a dust-free surface for as many people as we can. This is what we've tried to do in the town streets this term and in fact the small places, Kinka, Zilzie and Keppel Sands are just about finished and we've managed quite well in Emu Park too, and next term most urban capital works money can be concentrated in Emu Park. - Cr Ann Giorgi, Keppel Sands.

IT is encouraging to read the comments this week (CCM, Pg 3) of the candidate for Shire chairman, David Timbs, challenging the present council to face up to its moral responsibilities, and expenses, concerning the Tony Rowe debacle. The disgusting sequel to his 'trial' should be sheeted home to those responsible. The chickens are indeed 'coming home to roost'. The eight pages of the 'Rowe Report', in fine print (CCM, June 28, 1985), published as a community service, but no doubt at some expense, were to inform those prepared to read, rather than to merely listen to hearsay and gossip. Redressing of the vilification of an engineer against whom no misdeeds could be proven, and who displayed the courage of his convictions, is a moral necessity. Let ratepayers, during the coming elections, remember the names of those voting for the dismissal of the engineer who stood up for actions which he considered to be right. Your comments are indeed timely Mr Timbs and a reminder that ratepayers should be prepared to vote against charading councillors apparently not fulfilling their moral obligations to our Yeppoon community. As reported in the Mirror of June 22, 1985, those voting on the motion for Mr Rowe's suspension were: Those for: Crs Mario Cresta, Brian Dorey, Ann Giorgi, Duncan McDonald, Jim Anderson, Geoff Cue and Ellen Cogill. Those against: Cr Ted Smith, Kev Hinz, Keith Hinchliffe, Ron Landsberg, Barbara Wildin and Lindsay Hartwig. Lest we forget. - K M Moore, Yeppoon.

WELL, we certainly received some letters to the editor this week. One correspondent thought I wanted letters from other people because I was sick of the writers who always write in. That isn't correct. The Mirror's regular contributors are always welcome. It is away to have their say and we are happy to have given those people a forum in which to air their views .. it's better than punching someone in the mouth. What I meant was that there are quite a few people who would like to write letters, but feel they don't have a good command of language or think they can't express themselves with pen and paper. We are always delighted to help out in those circumstances. Of course, when you request letters to the editor, especially close to an election, the paper becomes subject to a write-in campaign from the one, two or many sides in conflict. Then the problem is whether to stop it or not. Another correspondent asked about the council agenda being available to the media in its entirety. Yes and no. The media doesn't receive all the correspondence, some other bits and pieces and certainly nothing that must go into "committee" and the Mirror doesn't argue about that. The financial report is included, the complete health and engineering report and all building approvals given. The agenda we receive is now sufficient for our needs ... it hasn't always been so. We used to collect the agenda on the afternooh before a council meeting between 4.30pm and 5pm, with a member of the staff going into the meeting room with us. Letters are still welcome on all subjects, not just council, councillors, candidates and elections in general. Again, please don't make them too long otherwise we will have to either cut them or leave them out. *** EMU Park CWA will hold its first 1988 meeting on February 2 at 1.30pm in the association's Emu Park rooms. *** A cent sale is on Tuesday, February 2 in Emu Park's CWA Hall starting at 9.30am. It has been organised by Emu Park Lioness Club. *** YEPPOON Lapidary Club will hold its monthly meeting today (Saturday) at the club rooms in Yeppoon ShowgrOunds at noon. All members and visitors are welcome. *** NURSING Mothers will discuss what the Nursing Mothers Association has to offer new and experienced mothers on Thursday, February 11 at 9.30am. The venue is 19 Tucker Street, Yeppoon and all mothers whether bottle or breast-feeding are welcome. Phone 39 1095 WANT to put something back into the community you Yeppoon Senior Citizens' Benevolent Housing Society will have its annual general meeting on Wednesday, February 3 at 7.30pm in the Uniting Church hall, Arthur Street, Yeppoon. The society maintains and raises money for the senior citizens' home in Birdwood Avenue. The members have done a mighty job ... the buildings are an asset to the area and house our senior citizens the way they all should be. New members are needed to carry on the good work ... it has been left to the same people, almost since the society started and they are weary of taking office year after year. The duties are not heavy and you will get a lot of satisfaction in helping out. *** IFyou cook, knit or crochet you are invited to take part in the Emu Park CWA knitting, cooking and crochet competition. . It is open to members and non-members and you have until early March to prepare your entry. The competition date will be announced after the branch's February meeting. The sections are: any crochet article in acrylic; best knitted entry from 100 grams or less of synthetic yarn; carrot cake, set recipes; cinnamon tea cake, set recipe; microwave chocolate cake, own recipe; 375 to 500 gr jar of marmalade; the same size in mustard pickles. All articles, except the first one, will remain • the property of the QCWA. Copies of set recipes can be obtained from CWA members or contact Emu Park CWA president Yvonne Protheroe, 39 6930. *** NEW and Pregnant Parents' Support (NAPPS) will start its first series of preparation for childbirth and early parenting classes on Monday, February 1 at the Community Health Centre, Yeppoon.

14 -- Capricorn Coast Mirror January 30 IF Cr Giorgi was struck dumb by Jim Turner's statements (Capricorn Coast Mirror, January 16), then evidently it was not for as long as a lot of ratepayers on the Coast would have hoped. What type of individual seeks to attack the integrity of our pensioners by urging them notto-be greedy. Many of our aged and veteran

La Bamba Finest Cuisine, Party - 39 3212

February 5, 1988


pensioners here on the Coast are disadvantaged citizens and are living well below the poverty line. It is only by having the support of caring relatives, friends and service clubs that they are able to spend their retiring years with some sort of dignity. Our aged pensioners of today grew up in an era where they worked, raised their families and fought for their country without the social welfare payments such as unemployment benefits supporting mothers allowances and child endowment available today. To my way of thinking and that of all fair-

minded citizens our pensioners deserve all they get. I ask Cr Giorgi to look around and see who provides a large proportion of the voluntary labour at functions organised by charitable and church organisations in our area. Those pensioners who are able are always well to the fore, giving of their best and playing a valuable part in our community. They don't have to give money Cr Giorgi, they give of themselves which in many cases is of more value. In all probability my husband and I, due to

our business careers, will never be eligible for a pension but we certainly do not begrudge one cent of our taxation going towards the support of aged or veteran pensioners. Nor do we mind our rates going in part to subsidise those less advantaged. I am sure I speak for the majority of our Coast residents in this respect. I go further and say that the majority of residents would also support Jim Turner in his endeavours to gain extra benefits if he can for pensioners. Hold your heads high pensioners, you are first class citizens, and accept Your benefits with pride. - Desley Rial, PO Box 158, Yeppoon.

St Brendan's 6th in cricket ST BRENDAN'S first XI cricket side competed in the annual Christian Brothers Cricket Week at Brisbane and returned home last Saturday, officially sixth out of 16 teams. One of the highlights of the week's cricket occurred on the first day of the carnival when St Brendan's played and defeated TAS side and last year's winners ... St Columbans. Batting first, St Brendans reached 9-145, after batting through the allotted overs. Brendan McAndrew, 41, top-scored for St Brendan's. St Columbans never really looked like reaching St Brendan's score as they were bundled out for 93. Brendan's chief destroyers on the first day were McAndrew (4-29) and Micheal Scantlebury (3-13). St Patricks Strathfield (Sydney) easily accounted for St Brendan's on the second day before a controversial watch against Nudgee 2 on the third day saw St Brendan's narrowly defeated. St Brendan's met powerful Brisbane side St Laurences on the fourth day and fielding first, managed to restrict the side to 156 runs after 50 overs. At 2-70 St Brendan's was well on course to pass the score, however a dramatic middle order collapse saw St Brendan's out for a score well short of 156. The second last day in Brisbane saw St Brendan's amass 216 runs against Mount Carmel College, Charters Towers. McAndrew top scored with 50; Shane Bombardieri made 40 and Mark Kelly compiled a neat 32. Mt Carmel could not match Brendan's run rate and was bowled out for 147; Mark Kelly was Brendan's best bowler taking 4-48. On the final day St Brendan's met St Pats (Mackay) and found runs hard to get against a very accurate bowling attack. Defending 103 was not easy for St Brendan's. However the game ended close (but in Mackay's favour) after Danny Fletcher's off spinners cut through Mackay's middle order. He took 4-29. Special credit goes to team captain McAndrews who scored 145 runs during the week at an average of 29; bowler Mark Kelly who took 10 wickets and fielder Sean Rooney who was always alert in the field and took the best catch of the week. Nudgee College was the winner of the competition.

GREAT KEPPEL ISLAND resort must be regarded as one of this region's greatest assets. The accommodation is bright, airy, modern, clean, comfortable and surrounded by crystal-clear water. The meals are included in the tariff and certainly take care of the hundreds of guests. There's plenty of staff and they are enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. What brings on this foaming at the mouth about the resort? Simply that "Old Baldy" and Suzy took son Rhett over there on the weekend for "annual leave". They raved about the two-day break. Apparently everything was perfect. They were met at the Seafari by a tractor hauling a carriage; had a beachfront room; gave up any ideas of dieting when they hit the dining room and "OB" and Rhett thoroughly enjoyed getting sunburnt riding surf-skis, aquabikes and catamarans all day long. They even had a quiet game of Scrabble in the Sunset Lounge (Rhett called it Sunset Lodge but wasn't referring to the Emu Park premises). The reason for this mention of the resort is that so many people on the Coast seem to think it is prohibitively expensive. "OB" said the overnight stay cost S253 for the three of them and that included all meals. Drinks were extra ... but it would be a brave resort that included drinks in any tariff. In this Bicentenary year, when we are being encouraged to See Australia First, perhaps we locals should have a look close at hand'll be amazed at what is available! ***

Two French players booked for Yeppoon Rugby League Club

YEPPOON Rugby League Club is negotiating to have two French players sign on for the 1988 season under the Franco-Australian Rugby League Exchange. If successful, YRL club president Maurie Webb said Yeppoon would gain the services of two young, seasoned, rugby league players who would be in top condition because they would have just finished their football season in France. He said this week he was confident the club would get the two French players but was debating how to accommodate them.

"We can rent them a house or flat but it could be lonely for them," he said. "We are wondering if there are any Fretich people living on the Coast who would like to open their home to one or both of them." Mr Webb said both players would speak the universal language of rugby league on the field but a lack of English could cause problems in the day-to-day life on the Coast. The French players will not be the first in Central Queensland. Thangool had two from France last season and one of the Thangool players is a regular in France in Australia's off season. This year, Yeppoon and Byron Bay (NSW) made application for French players offering them a tantalizing "sun, surf and a bit of football". "This Franco-Australian Rugby League Exchange is a two-way street," Mr Webb said. "Not only will we gain two players this year, but also two of our players will be applying to play in France at the end of this year." If the Yeppoon players make the trip they could be in for a different style of game. A newsletter says: "Come November (the French winter) you will learn a new ball game, "greasy pig", in the freezing mud. "T-shirt underwear, double socks, and wine. at the pre-match meals, become great ideas. "A novel variation that usually occurs once a season is snow " Mr Webb said Yeppoon Rugby League Club was rebuilding this year and looking forward to a top season." Training is already under way and there will be a pre-season game at Maryborough on February 13. Anyone interested in providing a home for the French players can contact Mr Webb on 39 1755. "We don't expect free lodging," he said. "These players will be able to pay their own way but we would like them to settle in quickly and feel at home."

SUZY has glasses ... well, half-glasses at any rate. Apparently only the bottom of her eyeballs are giving trouble. She picked them up on Wednesday while "OB" fiddled around nearby reading the phone book from 30 metres and other tricks like that designed to make Suzy feel better. She returned to work, perched them on the end of her nose, and started writing. A couple of hours later Pat Andersen dropped in, talked for about 20 minutes, then casually asked how long Suzy had been wearing glassesAfter Suzy said (ever so sweetly) "two hours," Pat replied brightly: "Oh good, I was worried you'd had them for years and I'd never noticed them before." ***

BY the way, did you know that if you are bald, and want to wear a wig, but are worried about people noticing, the best way to handle the situation is to grow a moustache. (If you are a woman, this advice could be difficult to follow). Anyway, you grow this dirty big moustache, and a beard too if you're that way inclined, get everyone to comment on it ... then, the day you first wear your wig, shave off the moustache and beard. Everyone will notice the facial hair that is missing (how can they if it isn't there?) but won't notice the addition on the top of the head. How do I know? Just something I heard one day and Suzy's glasses reminded me of it!!! **

YEPPOON woman wanted to send a card to a friend and carefully chose one. She decided she had done her bit so told her husband it was his job to fill in the card. Husband apparently grunted but did the job. Another Yeppoon woman received the card, opened it ... and read: "Well old fella, ..." and so on. Sender's husband really did not listen to his wife and wrote out the card for the woman's husband. No doubt he'll hear about it for at least another 12 months!! ***

BILL GREEN is an electrician. Bill Green has a phone-answering machine. Bill Green is down one customer because of his machine. This is what happened. Bill came home one day and listened to this message from a woman who wanted him to install a hot water system. In just 35 seconds available on the tape she asked for a price, and included such detail as the distance from the power board to the HWS. She said "thank-you" ... and the tape ended. There was no name, no phone number. Bill listened to the tape heaps of times trying to work out the woman's name by trying to recognise her voice but gave up. That was before Christmas. He realises the woman has probably engaged another electrician but he's worried she may think he's the sort of bloke who never returns messages. So, to the woman out there who gave him the message, that's why he didn't phone back! Well, that's my good deed for the day. My column will close when you hear the beep! ...Beep!!!
