ISSUE 235 SATURDAY, February 13, 1988 -- FRIDAY, February 19, 1988

PEOPLE who died two and three years ago are still listed on the electoral roll for the March 19 council elections ... and postal voting coupons will be sent to their address. The rolls were prepared by the State Electoral Office in Brisbane and sent to Livingstone Shire Council as the official voting list for the elections. Capricorn Coast Mirror staff, purely out of curiosity at first, checked off names at random on Monday night and discovered the name of a woman who died at least three years ago. Then a man who died at least two years ago was found to still be listed on the roll. But people who died just months ago had been removed from the rolls. Further turning of pages revealed duplica-

tions ... the same person listed at two different addresses. Also, names of people who are known to have left the area, are also on the roll. And these incorrect entries only represent names Mirror staff recall. Shire clerk Jim Brown, who is also returning officer for the council elections, said even though certain names may be brought to his attention, he would still have to send a postal vote to the people. However, he said there were a number of safeguards built into the system. The first was the post office. Postal votes sent to people no longer living at the address shown on the roll would be returned to the council office.

Also, any names brought to his attention, before votes were counted on March 19, would be checked. Further, as soon as he was contacted with a name, he would be able to make inquiries to check whether the name in question was eligible for a vote. "I just can't accept someone's word that someone is dead," Mr Brown said. "I have to have proof of death." Mr Brown said if he were to remove a name from the roll without proof the whole election could be declared invalid. The Mirror phoned the Electoral Commission in Rockhampton and was told answers to any queries on the electoral roll would have to come from Yeppoon Courthouse.

Safeguards against invalid votes in poll REGARDLESS of how electoral roll errors occur, Livingstone Shire returning officer Jim Brown will be sending out votes to dead people. If some of these postal ballots slip through the safeguards, it's possible they could be filled out and returned to the council to be counted among the votes. Mr Brown said to eliminate this problem, he could mark electoral rolls to be used for counting so that should "doubtful" names turn up for counting, he could put them aside for investigation. To do this, he needs names. He has sought help from the public to check the electoral rolls for their own names and, while checking, note any friends or family. To make this checking process as convenient as possible, Mr Brown has arranged for complete electoral rolls to be available at all shire libraries: Yeppoon, Emu Park, Keppel Sands, The Caves, Ogmore and Marlborough. Anyone noticing anything incorrect could leave a note with library staff and Mr Brown would investigate it. There is always the problem that someone may attempt to have a second vote by using a postal vote that turns up for someone who should not be on the roll, but there is also a greater problem ... upsetting bereaved relatives. In the case of people who have died some months, oryears ago, relatives maywell be over the worst of the loss ... but a postal vote would be a reminder of the hurt. Also, it's quite normal for candidates seeking office to write to everyone in their division, or the shire, seeking support. It can create awkwardness for both relatives of deceased and the candidates. • Secure vote guarantee - page 3

We will not be publishing the names because it could upset bereaved relatives. When returning officer Jim brown was told we would be compiling the list, he said it was a good idea because it would give him, and scrutineers, a chance to check names to see if they had voted.

Yeppoon Clerk-of-the-court Rod Young said the courthouse was given an updated roll for the shire on December 31 each year. It's printed in Brisbane and the Yeppoon Courthouse job was to remove or add names sent monthly, on a list, from Brisbane. This is how the roll is updated for this area. Additions and deletions are only made on advice from Brisbane. "I just keep the bookwork up to date," Mr Young said. When asked how people who had died two or three years ago could still be on the roll, he said it was a Brisbane "office error". It was an "office error" that also created duplications.


MIRROR OFFERS LIST OF NAMES FOR HOPEFULS BECAUSE Mirror staff had so little trouble identifying a number of people who were either dead, appeared more than once in the electoral roll, or had long ago left the area, we have make a list of these names. decide, This lip will be made available to any candidate who asks.

He said the list would also provide a means of updating the shire's rolls for the future. People who find incorrect names in the rolls at council libraries can, as well as informing library staff, give written details to the Mirror so those names can be added to the list. • Meet the candidates - pages 4, 5 and 6

CR BARBARA WILDIN will be the first woman chairman of Livingstone Shire if elected on March 19. Her late nomination on Monday caught many people off guard. Until Monday, there was doubt as to whether she would even stand as a councillor for division two. Cr Wildin's nomination caused many raised -eyebrows among other candidates' supporters. On Wednesday, after campaigning door-todoor, she said she was encouraged by the response she had received. With two terms behind her representing division two, she said she had decided to run for the chair because she wanted to provide "a real alternative". "When I looked at the three people who had already said they would stand, I decided there was no real choice," she said. "This feeling was backed up by people who phoned me and said they felt the same way. "That's why I'm standing. It's all or nothing." Cr Wildin said she had deliberately left her nomination to the last minute to give herself time to think about the issues. "There are issues that have to be addressed ... and I haven't seen too many addressed since unofficial campaigning started," Cr Wildin said. "I will be talking about these issues as I travel around meeting people. I do not, at this stage, intend grabbing headlines. "I'm leaving that to the rest of the field. This election is far too important to be decided in the newspapers. "This election, because it's a postal ballot, will be decided at the kitchen table ... and that's where I want to meet the voters." A mother of three daughters, (aged 19,18 and 13) Cr Wildin has spent six years as a Livingstone Shire councillor, is the vice president of the Central Queensland Local Government Association, and pulled more than 14 per cent of the votes when she stood last year as an independent for the State seat of Broadsound. Her husband, John, is an extension agronomist with the Department of Primary Industries.

FEDERAL Environment Minister Senator Graham Richardson visited the Capricorn Coast last week to meet conservationists and tour areas of concern. Queensland Wildlife Preservation Society Capricorn branch president Pat O'Brien said the visit had resulted in "meaningful discussions" between the conservation movement and Senator Richardson. Mr O'Brien said talks had been held on Shoalwater Bay, Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and rural land degradation.

Timbs: basic services neglected LIVINGSTONE Shire Council chairman candidate David Timbs said this week that the provision of basic services for Livingstone Shire residents and ratepayers have been neglected by council. "Since nominating as a candidate I have received numerous complaints about council neglect. "When many people complain about such things as poorly formed and dangerous roads, dust, loose gravel, water, sewerage, inadequate

"The Senator was alarmed at salinity (salt) problems visible from the air around Rockhampton," he said. "It was encouraging to also see tourist representatives talking to the Senator. After all, conservation and tourism complement each other." Mr O'Brien said he believed futher, useful, discussions could be held between the two groups. "Both are working toward the longterm welfare of the Capricorn Coast," he said.

LIVINGSTONE Shire Chairman candidate Jim Turner said that one of his most important roles upon election as chairman would be to invite State Cabinet to visit Yeppoon to see the problems that existed in the Shire. "Such problems as The Causeway, Kinka Beach erosion and the enormous cost of sewerage to Emu Park, should be put the government," he said. "It is beyond the ratepayer to be able to afford the expenditure of millions of dollars. It would allow the ministers to acquaint themselves with the area, and be more sympathetic to the allocation of funds from their respective departments. "State Cabinet hasn't visited Yeppoon in nearly 10 years. I am aware of the enormous advantages of a cabinet visit because of when it came to Clermont. "Expenditure on the Clermont-Charters Towers Road was lifted from 5400,000 per year to $4,000,000; Schooling was lifted to Grade 12; funds for showgrounds complex S550,000, the finest in Queensland; sprinkler system at the race track, along with other funds," Mr Turner said. "Many private individuals and private enterprise problems were solved."

drainage, long grass and dogs, I'm obviously concerned," Mr Timbs said. "The roads are particularly bad. We've got problems with wide, winding, badly formed, unsealed and dangerous tracks. For many these roads have become a nightmare. Forced to endure billowing dust, I know of some residents who have become so irritated they have required medical attention. "Emu Park and Zilzie have been allowed to become, in parts, quite untidy. I would hope to see council ensure that absentee landlords maintain and keep their properties clean. "We won't solve these problems overnight. We will need to budget for some major works and extensive maintenance. In resolving to improve the provision of basic services throughout the entire Shire council will need to develop a carefully detailed and costed scheduling of all major works programs. "I have declined to make promises. It would be foolish to commit council to any decisions. It is my hope that I can lead a council which will quickly develop cohesion and teamwork with people concerned about the needs as they exist, not just within their own divisions, but throughout the Shire," Mr Timbs said.

`DISINFORMATION' Dear Electors, For some weeks many citizens in our community have been pressuring me, as the chairman, to answer statements that have been made in the media, as they felt the council did not warrant the extent of criticism and disinformation that was being presented. The time has come to stand up and defend this council. Let us look at the reasons why certain people inflict our minds with disinformation:One type of person can be doing it in a state of ignorance or innocence, particularly if these people are basing their assumption on unresearched rumour. Another type of person can be inflicting disinformation on the community for very selfish and devious reasons, particularly if they have a pecuniary or money interest. Many governments throughout the world are in turmoil today because terrorism is a daily way of life, and these communities suffer horrendously from the effects of deliberate and despicable disinformation by persons wishing to destroy that community for their own ends. A well ordered council is of no use to the dishonest and devious who wish to manipulate and make money out of confusion. We are not in South America - we are a community in the Shire of Livingstone, which is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The people of Livingstone do not deserve this sort of treatment, neither do the elected members or staff. We have one of the most wealthy and healthy environments to be found in Australia, and it is only as a community working and pulling together, that we can set a future to be proud of, not only for our lifetime, but for many generations to come. How do we achieve this goal?

do we separate the truth from the rumours?

(6) No more confusion and conflict in planning and development

(1) If you hear of a disturbing statement about an elected member, ring that member up directly and discuss your concern. Our members would be only too pleased to supply you evidence of the truth. (2) If you hear of frightening reports of council finance, administration or works, please do not hesitate to ring 39 3388 and ask to speak to our shire clerk Jim Brown ... he will be pleased to correct or confirm any information that may concern you. (3) After your investigation, get back to your informer. Find out the origin of the rumour and alert him/her to the truth.

I appeal to the sensible members of our community to help us in these endeavours now. Let us throw cold water on the hot heads, and let the intelligent and well-informed electors in our community choose their council. I appeal to you the electors, to work together for our future. There is a saying "In order for evil to prosper, all that is required is for good men to do nothing."


We need open government - we need intelligent debate and the right to differ - but we should always respect our neighbour's right to hold a different point of view. Looking on the brighter side of life, I am very proud and pleased to be the Chairman of Livingstone, and in the past 22 months I have got to know the members and staff extremely well. I am looking forward to continuing the good work of this council, with their help, over the next three years. some years to achieve all of the goals and aspirations that our members have for this community. The past is history. Going forward, even though it is a huge job, can still be a pleasant and rewarding task. I am looking forward to the day when we have:21 3 4 5

Bowen replies to 'unwarranted attacks' on council's finances LIVINGSTONE Shire chairman Cr John Bowen has decried misleading criticisms of council business and reports which have appeared in the press in recent months. He said that on several occasions the financial management reports and accounts had been subjected to unwarranted attack by persons who have not properly researched and conveyed the facts in their articles. "The council is open and accountable in its dealings with the public and officers are only too willing to sunstantiate the contents of official reports and returns," Cr Bowen said. "While honest, informed criticism is welcome, the selfish undermining of public confidence in the financial management and economic strength of the Livingstone Shire by the misuse of statistics is to be deplored; causing untold harm within the community and inhibiting confidence in the future of the shire. "I requested the shire clerk to cite examples of some such misleading statements and these have been made available to show how the criticisms were misleading. "New loan borrowings amount to $5.1 mil-

lion ... the actual amount of new loans raised for 1987/88 is $2.965 million, an error of some $2.135 million. "$411,000 outstanding rates at July '87 compares very poorly with the $279,987 outstanding at June 30'86 ... the staff report comparison refers to all rates and charges ($411,000) whereas the correspondent is referring to general rates ($279,987) only (the conclusions are invalid). - "$384,000 currently outstanding represents 16 per cent of annual general rates and would be ninth worst position of all the shires in the State ... the correspondent is confused as in the previous item and there are no statewide statistics available on which to base the assertion. "General rates have been used to fund the Capricorn Coast water and sewerage schemes to the extent of $15,288.41 last year ... the accounts clearly show that the cost ($15,228.41 - not as stated) of preparing the submissions on water and sewerage schemes was a recoverable works item and not a final cost against the general fund. (The statement was incomplete and thus misleading.)."

Guarantee on confidential vote RETURNING officer Jim Brown said every voter must sign their postal ballot paper to have a valid vote ... but he assures electors their name will not be linked with their vote when it is opened. The Capricorn Coast Mirror has received a number of inquiries from Coast residents who said they would not be voting because they had heard they had to sign their ballot paper. Mr Brown said complete confidentiality was assured under the Elections Act. He said the postal ballot form was one sheet of paper containing the names of candidates and a section on the bottom with an oath and space for the voter's signature and the signature of a witness. The section containing the candidates' names was provided with gum all round so that voters could record their choice in privacy, seal that section all around so that it became a closed envelope, and be left with the section to be signed and witnessed. The form was designed thisway to ensure that even the witness did not see how an elector • ": ........... ......... 1. ....... • ....... ........... ' ''' ......... ......... • •

voted ... the witness only-witnesses the elector's signature. The completed postal vote is posted to the Returning Officer and is placed, intact, in a locked box. On Saturday, March 19, at 10am, when counting starts, the box containing all votes will be opened in front of the Returning Officer and his staff and candidates and scrutineers. The voting coupons, with names attached, will be checked off on the roll to ensure they are valid. When this has been validated, the section with the name will be removed (it is perforated) and put in one box and the still sealed vote will be placed in another box. When all votes have been validated, the sealed votes will then be opened and counted. Mr Brown said there was no way anyone could see how any particular person voted. "The voter seals the vote and it not opened until well after the voter's name has been removed," he said. "The vote part is mixed up with the thousands of others and is not identifiable in any way."

COUNCIL candidates in all divisions were this week asked a series of questions to answer the many queries from electors directed to this newspaper. The questions were: What is your occupation? Where do you live and how long have you lived there? Do you own any property in Livingstone Shire? If you do and it is more than one hectare, do you have any intentions of subdividing? Why did you nominate for council? Most candidates saw it as an opportunity to get their message across to the electorate, however while all were phoned, some were not available and one had no interest in taking part.

DIVISION 2, BRIAN BARTLEY DIVISION two candidate, Brian Bartley, is a retired registrar who has lived at Cooee Bay for the past two-and-a-half years. Mr Bartley said he didn't own any land in Livingstone Shire and had no property to subdivide. "I believe my long and varied experience in public administration and public finance will allow me to contribute well in any council debate or decision-making," he said. "I have no vested interest in council but have strong involvements with the Christian church and ecumenical movement on the Coast, hospital and nursing services, wildlife preservation and protection of the environment. "I am a founding member of the Coast Amnesty International group. "I would seek to work closely with the elected chairman and I know my practical experience of negotiation on committees, and other councils, would help in conciliation between conflicting interests and in producing constructive policies, teamwork and harmony on council."

RETAILER Doug Cuddy has lived on the Capricorn Coast for the past seven-and-a-half years at Cooee Bay. Mr Cuddy said he owned property in the shire which was less than one hectare. He said he had no intention of sub-dividing the property. He said he was standing in division 2 for the Capricorn Coast's future. "It is my belief Livingstone Shire Council's history has proved to be coated with negative results. "Look at the past 10 years of Yeppoon standing still, for example ... businesses regularly failing, developments never coming to fruition, beautifications at a go-slow speed and extraordinary costs of unnecessary proportions in council management, particularly with town planning. That's why I am quietly confident of election in division 2," he said. "Anyone who has watched council over the past three years will see the need for a change in representation in division two."

DIVISION 2, GEOFF CUE CR GEOFF Cue is the proprietor of an hydraulic engineering business, owns units and flats called Marine Siesta Sands, in Todd Avenue, and a farm on Adelaide Park Road. Cr Cue lives on the farm and said all the land he ownedwas for farming purposes and he had no intention of subdividing at this stage. "I believe basically all the goals and promises made prior to the 1985 election have been achieved," he said. "It's been a difficult term with probably only 18 months to indicate real direction and implement strongly policies I believe in. I believe division 2 ratepayers have a three-year investment in me and my direction and I need another term to consolidate and capitalise on the obvious improvements that have occurred of late."

DIVISION 2, BRIAN DOREY COOEE BAY resident for the past 25 years, Cr Brian Dorey, is a journalist. Cr Dorey said he owned his own home but no

other property and had no intention of developing in "any way, shape or form". Cr Dorey said that in 1973, after having been asked to stand for the previous two terms, he decided to run for council. "I didn't stand because I wanted to be a councillor but because the people asked me to and one way I could help the community was to be a councillor," he said. "I have no ambitions other than to represent the people."

DIVISION 2, RAY McDONNELL BUSINESSMAN Ray McDonnell owns a shop at Cooee Bay where he has lived for the past three years. Mr McDonnell said he didn't own any property in Livingstone Shire. He said his reason for nominating came about through his business where he meets a number of average ratepayers. "I get so many average ratepayers fed-up with the disunity in council," he said. "No local authority can work without unity, trust, understanding and communication."


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


Dear Electors, It is all public knowledge now of all those contesting Council Elections. May I wish Candidates every success. No doubt some Councillors have performedwell throughout their term and I have had the opportunity to discuss many matters with them personally, however all our performances are judged in the Ballot Box by the Electors and rightly so. One question I will once again answer. QUESTION: What made me stand for the Chairmanship of the Livingstone Shire? ANSWER: Request by the late Dick Tennent some years ago, and by citizens of Yeppoon 1986-87 with meetings being held in October 1987 and later in November 1987, with good attendance. OBJECTIVES 1.Cut cost wherever possible and maintain rate level. 2. Watch closely and reduce loan indebtedness. 3. Employ a Community Development Officer to obtain Government Grants for Council and Community and to bring Council and Community closer together. (No cost to ratepayer.) Benefit: Grants will far off set wages therefore not being a cost to ratepayer. Further apply to State Government for grants towards wages (Belyando received S60,000 for 3 years 1987-89.) VOTE al

Over the years, most central Queenslanders (as well as thousands of other people!) have entrusted themselves to my care and judgement on board one or other of the tourist vessels I have skippered. I now ask you to sign me on to the "Good Ship" Livingstone Shire as a councillor. Having resided in Yeppoon for more years than I care to remember and having had contact with so many residents through my work and 14 years' service on the ambulance committee (part of the time as chairman). I feel I have a good grasp of the needs and aspirations of most of the ratepayers. Please consider seriously voting...


DIVISION 2, HAROLD VAUGHAN FARMER Harold Vaughan was born in Yeppoon and he has lived his life in Yeppoon, the past 15 years at Adelaide Park Road. Mr Vaughan, "just call me Harold," said he owned a block of land in division 2 and another block in division 1 but had no intention of subdividing because he planned to use it for his pineapple farming. "I nominated for council because I thought there could possibly be gaps in council and I am keen that council goes in the right direction and doesn't get out of hand again," he said. DIVISION 2, ROY WALL DIVISION 2 candidate Roy Wall has spent the past 30 years farming his pineapple business at Bungundarra. He owns the property but needs the land for pineapple growing and has no intention of subdividing it. Mr Wall said "when a man receives a desperate call from a ratepayer what choice does he have but to accept the call to stand. "I want a council free from cronyism, which also has one set of rules for everbody."

DIVISION 2 candidate Maurie Webb works at St Brendan's College as an teacher-aide, with many and varied duties because it is a boys' boarding college. Mr Webb has lived on the Capricorn Coast for the past 25 years, most of the time in Cliff Street. He saw the name, Capricorn Coast, emerge after a Statewide competition while Yeppoon Chamber of Commerce secretary. He said he only owned his home and no other property in the shire. "I think I have a wealth of experience from being on past councils and I have a burning desire to work for people in the community," he said.



TOURIST operator Cr John Dowie is also an insurance agent. Cr Dowie, who has lived on Rockhampton Road for the past 17 years, owns no other property than his home. "Livingstone and its divisions as a shire have become an integral part of my life," he said. "I believe if my beinga part of the new council can contribute to a united approach to solving any problems that undoubtedly will confront the people that share the opportunities and frustrations, then I willingly give of my time and ability to make a balanced and proper judgement."

"I have just sold my home which was about one-and-a-halfacres but I am now moving down the road to a smaller, more managable house. "I feel I would like to be back, and taking an active part in council, after a long break," she said. "I would like to take an active part in the shire's running. I have been helping a lot of people in the Joskeleigh area and want to further that help." Mrs Edmund said it wasn't only the Joskeleigh people she wanted to help but also Emu Park, Keppel Sands and the whole division 1 area. "I would like to be in a position where I can do more for the whole of division 1. The area needs someone with positive thinking and commonsense," she said.

"Despite Cr Duncan McDonald attending meetings and putting forward the area's request, it wasn't as good as having a representative."

EMU PARK SEWERAGE? Lloyd Webber has a scheme which will cost the majority of ratepayers or the council

NOTHING!! VOTE Lloyd WEBBER for Division One Authorised by L Webber, Cawarral


For sound representation... VOTE

1 Neville

(MEET THE CANDID DIVISION 1, ANN GIORGI COUNCILLOR Ann Giorgi has lived at Keppel Sands for the past seven years. Cr Giorgi said she did own property in the shire but there was nothing left to subdivide so she had no intention of subdividing. "I looked very hard to find some young person to take over my position on council," she said. "The people I approached were unable to run and because there was no other suitable person, beside Cr Duncan McDonald, I decided to run. "I was disappointed in the calibre of people running but didn't realise when I put in my nomination that Lawrie Daley and Mabel Edmund, as well as Cr McDonald were running."

DIVISION 1, DUNCAN McDONALD FARMER Cr Duncan McDonald has lived the past 64 years (all his life) in Cawarral, division 1. He has a 1600 acre farm which he doesn't intend to sub-divide. "I may have to sell some land, a block or two, when I retire, but that isn't for some years yet," he said. Cr McDonald said he nominated for council because he was already a councillor and nominated for re-election. "I maintain the majority of division 1 people are happy with my representation and I feel quite sure they would like to see me in council again."


FRASER in Division One Emu Park and District Progress and Ratepayers Association supports NEVILLE FRASER as its nominated candidate. He has 27 years Local Government experience and is a permanent resident of Emu Park. Neville will be available at all times to Division 1 electors. 39 6364 b/h 39 6947 a/h Authorised by R Leicht, 14/16 Bright St, Emti Park

SHOPKEEPER Frank Withoos has owned and lived at the Zilzie store for the past twoand-a-half years. As owner of the shop he has no intention of sub-dividing the land. Mr Withoos said his reason for standing in division 1 was prompted by people from his end of the Capricorn Coast wanting council representation. "A lot of people consider that we are the forgotten end of the Coast and would like to see some locally known person represent them," he said.

DIVISION 3, ELLEN COGILL GRAZIER Cr Ellen Cogill has lived on her Marlborough cattle property, Tanderra, for the past 28 years. Cr Cogill said because the, property was needed for grazing she had no intentions of sub-dividing the land. One reason for nominating was to "look after this area of Livingstone Shire," she said. "Also to maintain the level of improvements to roads and small towns, which has been -achieved over the past three-year term. "I want to ensure rates and charges are kept at a level people can afford, make sure roads are kept in good repair and permanent works are achieved in division 3 as funds become available."

CATTLEMAN Bill Rae has lived about four miles outside Marlborough for the past 35 years.' He does own property in Livingstone Shire but has no intention of sub-dividing the land. He nominated for council because he hoped he could do some good for division 3 people.

DIVISION 3, JOHN SMITH CANDIDATE for division 3 John Smith is a mine manager and timber cutter. Mr Smith said he had lived at Marlborough for the past six years. The only property he owns in the shire wouldn't be big enough to subdivide and he has no intention of doing so. A special interest in keeping youth in the area


To the Electors of Division One Livingstone Shire I have nominated for re-election for a Councillor for Division One at the forthcoming election on March 19th. During my present term I have attended every Council meeting held. I have also attended most of the meetings of the Progress and Ratepayers Association held at Emu Park. I have also attended most of the meetings of the Keppel Sands Advancement League and any meetings held in other areas of the Division. During my term, together with my fellow Councillor, we have bitumen sealed streets in Kinka, Emu Park, Zilzie and Keppel Sands. The roads in the Rural Areas have been upgraded to the extent that funds would allow. We have bitumen sealed the section of the Cawarral/Dairy-lnn in Division One. If re-elected I would look at doing a section of bitumen on another rural road in the next financial year. We have quite an amount of work to carry out this financial year, namely bitumen sealing streets in Emu Park, drainage work in Bell Park, upgrading of some rural roads. For continued progress vote the following way...

was the main reason he gave for standing. "I have a special interest in young people and I would like to do something to make them want to stay in the area," he said. "Division 3 is the backside of the shire and there is nothing here to keep them. "I like doing things for the community and anything that might encourage the youth to stay could be the turning point in helping develop the area."


I will strive for Emu Park

DIVISION 4, KEV HINZ DIVISION four candidate Cr Kev Hinz is a sawmiller by trade. Cr Hinz has lived all his life, about 49 years, at the Caves. Cr Hinz said he did own property in the shire but it had been sub-divided before he ever nominated for council. "I have no intention at this stage to sub-divide land because it was all sub-divided before I was elected to council," he said. Cr Hinz said his first three years on council had been a learning process. "I hope that during the next three years I can help the community more," he said. "I was talked into running for council to do something for the area."

DIVISION 2, TREVOR WHITE TREVOR White, 32, has lived on the Capri; corn Coast "on and off' for the past six years and is standing for a Livingstone Shire division two position as councillor. He is now a strawberry farmer, but has worked with youth organisations for nine years. "I have worked with CYSS, New Horizons, Participation and Equity Program and Community Volunteer Program in Victoria, New South Wales and Rockhampton," Mr White said. "My grandfather Jack White was a Livingstone Shire Division four councillor from 1946 to 1955. He was from the old school ... it was either right or wrong with no argument entered into. "I'm not the same ... working with youth has made me flexible. It has given me the opportunity to be able to weigh up individual problems and help solve them to a mutual benefit. "I see myself as representing the tourism section of division two as well the needs of the day-to-day residents. Council can help with both sections ... so that tourism will benefit the residents and vice versa. "Community Volunteer Program position I now have is only two days a week and the rest of the time is spent on my strawberry farm in Cooberrie. My farm is 55 acres and I have no intention of sub-dividing because I am farming the land. If my sister wants to live on my land, then I will have to cut off an acre for her, but that's all. "The other interest I have is in my family's caravan park ... the Blue Dolphin in Yeppoon." Mr White lives at the caravan park because he hasn't built a residence on his farm and can do the maintenance needed at the park for his mother, Ruth.

1. Improvements to Bell Park and Parks providing facilities for the youth. 2. Continue council's effort to overcome sewerage problem in business section, to help development. 3. Programme funding for more bitumen streets. Authorised by Jim Turner, 33 John St, Yeppoon. 39 1265 ADVERTISEMENT

ISSUES CONCERNING DIVISION 1 RATEPAYERS I decided to stand as a Candidate in Division One because I feel I am competent and have a fairly wide knowledge as an Administrator and known as a person who does not take "No" for an answer. I have no affiliation with any political party or pressure groups. Being in the public eye â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as a store-keeper in Zilzie -- I find the issues and problems associated in Division One are as follows: Poor drainage in Emu Park. Zilzie and Keppel Sands; the need for a sewerage scheme in Emu Park and Zilzie: poor quality roads and nonexistent street kerbing: neglect of Bell Park including caravan park: pot-holed road to Coorooman Creek boat ramp: poor quality road to Koorana Crocodile Farm: the lack of trees on public land such as nature strips: non-existence of children's playgrounds and facilities for children in Zilzie and Keppel Sands. Some of the remedies that I would like to address: the setting up of a Statutory Water and Sewerage Board, which would operate independently from the Council, for the whole of the Capricorn Coast which would plan and obtain finances to implement a sewerage scheme for Emu Park and Zilzie area ... or anything south of The Causeway. This sewerage and water board to be made up of two Livingstone Shire representatives, sewerage and water consultants ... engineers. one representative from each division and one independent local citizen from each division. Bell Park Caravan Park. which has the most beautiful setting on the Coast, has the poorest facilities imaginable. It needs immediate upgrading of the facilities or. failing this, handing over of the caravan park to private enterprise on a lease basis with the proviso that the lease-holder upgrade the facilities. I will pursue -- at all costs -- the upgrading of Coorooman Creek Road and the road to Koorana Crocodile Farm, so that tourists using these roads. and the locals, can do so in safety without fear of blow-outs. The greening of flora by the setting up of council neighbourhood nurseries. This could be achieved by approaching our elderly and retired citizens who may be interested in taking care and giving nourishment to immature plants. There should be stricter control on absentee landowners in the cleaning up of vacant allotments: making nature strips the responsibility of the owner to keep them neat and presentable. We live in an age of information and I would like to instigate a quarterly report from council as to what works and improvements are to take place in each division and this report to be made public to the media and representatives of council in each division.

For Division One...



Let's not turn back now! We are looking towards a very exciting three years. Poor roads and drainage have been suffered by residents for the last 50 years. This Council is coming to terms with the problems and we have, during the past term, provided more kerbing and channelling and sealed streets than ever before. Improved financial management is producing more work for your rate dollar. Your support and the co-operation of like-minded members will ensure the present progress continues. I can foresee in the next three years the completion of the majority of town streets and more permanent works on rural roads.

Hinton says 10 beds not enough THE allocation of 10 nursing home beds and five hostel places to Yeppoon from an unknown source as announced by M ember for Capricornia Keith Wright, is woefully inadequate, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week. Mr Hinton said while the Capricorn Coast was grateful for the 10 beds as it currently has now, the 10-bed allocation is a mere token gesture when the Capricorn Coast's needs are considered.

there is little chance of securing additional nursing home beds in the Fitzroy area, because the area has the highest in the State in terms of population over the age of 70 years," he said. "In fact, people over 70 years number 8628 in the Fitzroy region including 4717 in Rockhampton and 1031 in Livingstone Shire. "At the same time there are 574 nursing home beds, including 40 for intellectually handicapped people, with the largest home being Eventide with 169 beds. Mr Hinton said these figures had been supplied by the State Health Department. "Clearly the Capricorn Coast, which Mr Wright is now offering 10 beds, when on a pro rata population basis it should get 70 beds in the Fitzroy area, must have a higher transfer basis," he said. "It gets down to a straight case of Yeppoon versus Rockhampton, and Mr Wright and Federal Health Minister Dr Neal Blewett, have the matter in their hands alone. "It is no good Mr Wright saying that the issue should not be political. It is political and it is certainly no good Mr Wright blaming Premier Mike Ahern or any State Health Minister. "It is not their decisision - it is the Commonwealth's, and Mr Wright has had four years to do something about it. "Well now he has, as the pressure has mounted, but it is not anywhere near enough, and the community has a right to expect him to negotiate on behalf of the Capricorn Coast a lot harder," Mr Hinton said. Mr Hinton said that for many years the aged and frail have been transferred to Rockhampton from the Coast because there is no nursing home here. He said they left family, friends and with the difficulty of transport and the effort needed by friends to visit, many became very lonely people. "It is time that nursing home beds came from Rockhampton to Yeppoon, not the people from Yeppoon to Rockhampton," he said. "It is time for a fair go for the Coast and this must be appreciated in Rockhampton. Mr Hinton said he would be in Brisbane later this week, and would be having talks with State Health Minister Leisha Harvey with regard to land sites.

NO DOUBT everyone in Cawarral will remember the famous wheelie-bin meeting in Cawarral Hall when Cr McDonald, the health surveyor and I were given a hard time by the citizens of Cawarral about garbage. After that meeting the big bins were removed. Now, under the Health Act, it is illegal to use those bins for the collection of household refuse. They are only for picnic areas, etc. We wanted to give Cawarral a wheelie-bin service as we thought it the correct thing to do. Since the people of Cawarral so vigorously refused to have a wheelie-bin collection imposed upon them, and since the big bins were costing $22,000 a year to maintain, and since it was illegal to have them for household refuse anyway, council decided to remove them. Why, after all, should the general fund, paid for by everyone in the Shire, be used to sort out the garbage problems of people who refused to contribute for the service? The bins in parks throughout the Shire are paid for by the general fund, but as I mentioned before, this is not for household refuse. We then attempted to get a dump site for Cawarral, but of course no one wants a dump near them, so that fell through. So Cawarral people now have to use Keppel Sands, Emu Park or Rockhampton dumps. Council never intended to impose wheeliebins on people who lived on difficult roads of

had large farms. It was actually intended as a service. It only costs about $70 a year. In most parts of the world people crawl on bended knees to get a decent garbage service. One of the chief hecklers at that infamous meeting, along with ringleaders Lloyd Webber and Chris Palmer, was Cr Barbara Wildin. Cr Wildin has twice in recent meetings had the grace to admit that she loves the wheelie-bin imposed on her and she thinks that other people in her area do too. A wheelie-bin takes an enormous amount of rubbish. She admitted that she has been able to clean out the underneath of her house by this friendly service. When you compare the cost of a wheelie-bin against the cost of petrol to the dump or effort in burning or digging I am just amazed that Cawarralites aren't begging for them. It's no skin off my nose, but I am just amazed. I also thought it necessary to explain the difference between household refuse and what I suppose I could best call "passing-by" refuse. One Cawarral man admitted to me at the meeting that he had had trouble getting his washing-machine into those big bins! I mean, I ask you!! He did have the grace to giggle in a . shamefaced manner. - Ann Giorgi, Keppel Sands.

`No surprise' IT iswith no surprise that I noted our 'pseudo council representative', from Keppel Sands has sought to misrepresent the people of Mt Chalmers. Yet again. Her previous outstanding effort was to tell several hundred local ratepayers that we were selfish and didn't know our own minds over the `wheelie bin' issue and as such she would vote as she wished - against our unanimous wish. She now tells us that those who are indecent enough to want to live in this area, but not as a farmers, are again unreasonable. However, she does point out that if you are a farmer you are willing to accept goat tracks to drive on. She goes on to say that the only logical choice of exit is Boto's Road. She fails to point out that to get to Nankin Creek Bridge by this route is almost twice the distance as by Sliepner Road. There is a similar distance of gravel road and the surface is often as rough. Her only accurate point is that Boto's Road is most often passable after heavy rain. At a ratepayers meeting last year (which she did not attend) Cr Bowen was told in rather definite terms that the people of the area were and are still capable of simple addition and therefore aware of the amount of rates paid. Unlike certain areas of Keppel Sands we do not expect to have bitumen roads suddenly appear around our properties. We realise that this would boost property values etc. But if we had regular maintenance we would be satisfied. At one stage the roads didn't see a grader for over 12 months, then they appeared three times in six months prior to council elections. Had our (mis) representative been present at this meeting she would have been aware of this discussion and the resultant lack of complaint, in general terms. Still, in fairness, she may have been away doing what she does best possibly looking after her own interest. In closing, I feel that although we've been told that we don't knowwhat we want, if she has the audacity to present herself for re-election she'll discover that we do know what we don't want. - A L Nicholson, CBM, Mt Chalmers.

Sadness over Jim

I I MAY I express, on behalf of the many orI ganisations and citizens who attended Jim Turner's farewell at Clermont on Friday, the I sadness to have lost Jim from the community.


He will always remain a legend in our district for his tireless efforts over the years. May I say I Clermont's loss is Yeppoon's gain and wish him good luck in the forthcoming Local Government elections in March. On behalf of the citizens of Clermont. - M A James, Gesterminten, Clermont.

Thankyon to myworkmat es who assisted me, and persons from Yeppoon Medical Centre, Yeppoon Taxi and Yeppoon Courthouse, with my upset on Thursday when my husband (Mick) was put into Rockhampton Base Hospital, also the ones who offered assistance at any time I need them. Special thanks to the Rockhampton taxi driver who parked the car for me and explained all the switches on the vehicle to me. Special thanks to the workmate who, when phoned, came and collected me and our vehicle from the hospital, who then packed her bag and took me back to Yeppoon, and to her friends she stayed with. Also to her spouse who had sprained his ankle, like me, to give his evening up with his wife for me to get the required assistance and support that I needed badly. Extra special thanks to workmate who arrived Friday at 6am to give me a crash course in our manual vehicle so I could drive myself around and who was always on hand with support when needed and words of encouragement to get myself to Rockhampton Base Hospital and back to Yeppoon.

On arriving on Friday afternoon at Rockhampton Base Hospital ... to the minister who gave me blessing upon my shoulder which gave me courage which I needed so badly. On the same evening to the two gentlemen policemen who drove me to our car and assisted me to Albert Street on my first night of sheer terror driving myself back to Yeppoon and their words of encouragement which made me feel good ... since I have to make these trips. I hope all who could end up in the same situation will gain courage from all I am writing. Also on Friday evening I was terrified for the kids (not teenagers) who were playing silly nonsense around on the Tanby roundabout ... who appear not interested in life, which is precious, and hope they never end up at Rockhampton Base Hospital with their stupidity. Also including Saturday evening to the two vehicles chasing each other on the highway to Yeppoon and the one who hit the gravel because they lost for a moment control of their vehicle as he or she passed me. Extra special thanks to my neighbour who gave his Saturday and Sunday to teach me to drive the manual and to his loving wife who gave up her moments with him for me and all their assistance in comforting me and talking things out. Extra sorry to any persons I may have caused inconvenience to when changing gears or sheer terror on my part in stalling. And extra thankyou for your patience until I have got myself going and to those motorists who have realised what I was doing and still doing ... and for their words of encouragement and courtesy which goes along way in helping. Many thanks to all who wish my husband the best and have assisted him with encouragement on the road to recovery and acceptance of all that has happened. Extra special thankyou to all the doctors, sisters, nurses, staff, patients and visitors at the Rockhampton Base Hospital in Ward 5C and all those who gave their own spare time to help Mick and myself. Thank you all who have assisted and encouraged us. — Mick and Pam Simper, P 0 Box 558, Yeppoon.

Wright's reply

IT seems that the record should be set right. Regardless of Mr Wright's "interpretation", my comments were never meant to refer to members of the nursing home committee such as Rev Svenson and Dr Ramiah. I give full marks plus to the good Reverend and Doctor and the other committee members who have worked so hard to achieve this project over a very long time. My comments were directed solely at Mr Timbs and no-one else. I object strongly to Mr Wright trying to drag the National Party into it as I most certainly do not speak for the National Party and it must be deeply regretted that such a worthy project as the nursing home has become something of a political football which, incidentally, occurred well before I ever wrote on the subject. I would have been very happy to attend the meeting which formed the committee, however when you are in a full time occupation or business you cannot always get away when you wish. There are more ways of assisting charity than attending meetings which just happens to be difficult for me as my work is based in Rockhampton and I have to make trips away as part of it. Finally, let us put all the politics and other detractions completely aside and hope that Mr Wright's 99.9per cent becomes a 100 per cent reality or a lot of people's hopes will be dashed and a lot more hard work made necessary to achieve this so worthwhile project. - Garth Brownsdon, PO Box 286, Yeppoon.

REPORTED QUOTES OF THE WEEK The well oiled wheels of our administration Today, Livingstone Shire Council is trying for the third successive day even to fix a rate, let alone a budget. But before anyone is tempted to start sneering about "Clayton's Budgets" Beverley Hillbillies or Keystone Cops, it would be wise to pause for a moment and think about the difficulties this council faces. An engineer caught up in an enquiry about his future, an ill assistant engineer, nine new and inexperienced councillors and awkward geographical boundaries ... it all adds up to a recipe for disaster. (Editorial, Morning Bulletin, 22 Aug, 1985) More on property developers etc on council Yes, Cr Cresta, let's move for the present council to be disbanded and an administrator appointed and perhaps with the right administrator the ratepayers may learn that to elect land developers and their running mates to council is detrimental to the smooth running of the shire's affairs. (L Webber letter, Mirror, 27 July, 1985) Cr Dorey states (MB 25.10.85): "It would be dangerous if developers gained access to proposed new growth areas before the town plan was fully implemented". The statement appears to be ludicrous from the ratepayers' point of view as there are already several councillors who are either estate agents, developers or very closely associated with them in council. (M Protheroe letter, Morning Bulletin, 5 November, 1985) At the risk of being considered presumptious, it is suggested that persons engaged in property development or real estate sales, should automatically be prohibited from standing as a candidate for any local government office, either in our local area or elsewhere. A large percentage of hassles, perks and favouritism could thus be obviated, and more attention focussed on the needs of the ratepayers and improvement of the shire. (K M Moore letter, Min-or, 28 Sept, 1985) ' If democracy counts for anything in the shire, I would suggest that any councillors with a pecuniary interest in development or any association thereto, should abstain from voting on these matters. As councillors only will have prior knowledge of zone moves in the town plan, they could be in a position to protect or expand their own interests, if they so desired, to the exclusion of all other interested parties. (M Protheroe letter, Morning Bulletin, 5 November, 1985) On a conspiracy A State Government report has slated 'the secret seven' Livingstone Shire councillors who conspired to remove shire engineer Mr Tony Rowe. The report, which was made publicyesterday, said the seven had gathered to plan their move to oust Mr Rowe about four weeks before a June council meeting ... the commissioners said the seven councillors had set out to surprise the remaining six councillors with their move.

Cartiavut Coaottige PROBUS will have a barbecue at Kemp Beach on Thursday, February 18 at 4pm. *** IF the standard set by last Tuesday's Yeppoon Pensioners League first social fur 1988 is continued throughout the year then Yeppoon pensioners can look forward to increased attendances at the monthly socials. On Tuesday 130 pensioners from Yeppoon, Rockhampton, Emu Park and a busload from Mt Morgan happily enjoyed a programme of dance, song and instrumental items. Norm Brisbin (pinao), Tony Ceff (saxophone) and Les Wessels (drums) provided a pre-social medley of popular melodies. Opening the afternoon, compere Marge Cornell extended congratulations to Dave and Janet Thwaites of Emu Park who celebrated 55 years of marriage on February 24. She also congratulated Bill Shuttlewood on his selection as Livingstone's citizen of the year. Following a session of community singing, Joe McIntyre pleased with his monologue Albert and the Ghost. Joe later introduced the song Pub with no Beer sung by The Entertainers who also rendered Waltzing Matilda. Emu Park's Alex Bacon, with Leila Goodwin as accompanist, sang a duo which included Old Man River. Sisters Sylvia McDonald and Kath Johnson so pleased with their violin-piano duet that a second appearance was demanded by the audience. Entertainerspianist, playing her own accompaniment, sang the seldom heard When Hearts were Young and the enchanting You will remember Vienna. Marge Cornell and Ruby Harris sang When it's Lamplighting Time in the Valley and Maori's Love Song. Ruby returned to sing When the great red dawn in Shining and Good Old Summer Time while Marge rendered It is no Secret and Blueberry Hills. Assistant compere Phyl Rumpf sweetly sang One day when we were Young and When you were Seventeen. Others who entertained were soloists Sarah Hall and Bill Shuttlewood and mouth organist George Cooper. Norm Brisbin (piano) and Tony Ceff (clarinet) were deservedly applauded for their duet which featured Strangers on the Shore and Maggie ... and Maggie was demanded as an encore. Valentine hearts, flags and a profusion of flowers decorated the stage. Decorations were by comperes Marge and Phyl and flowerswere provided by Phyl Rumpf, Beryl Connor and Thelma Shuttlewood. Dancing interspersed the items and the monte carlo was won by Evie Benson and Frances Biles. Lucky door numbers were held by Les Wessels (Rockhampton), Abby Schick, Sue Smith, Dot Close, Vic Mulry, Fred Leader (Yeppoon) and Thelma Richard and Don Bookless (Mt Morgan). Fruit and vegetable trays given by Dick and Betty Tyrer were won by Sylvia Wilson and George Madsen of Yeppoon and a third tray went to Eileen Ware from The Causeway. *..

The league thanks Wyn for stepping into the breach in its hour of need and would have liked to see her finish the year, but unfortunately ill health and other items made it imperative for her to resign. George Bardrick was elected president and he thanks the members for their support and trust. He said the roll up was good, but the league needs more support. "We need members attendance at the socials and meetings. Constructive criticism would be appreciated. Please let us hear from you," Mr Bardrick said. "Maybe you would like to run a coach once a month for shopping purposes... we are looking for suggestions." He said that the members run the league not the executive and the only way to find out what the members want is to go along to meetings and socials. *** YEPPOON Diabetic group is having its first meeting for 1988 on Tuesday, February 17 at the Community Health Centre, Anzac Parade, Yeppoon, at 7.30pm. *** THERE is a Coast resident who knows that honesty is still the best policy. She shopped at Savemore and when arriving home and unpacking the goodies, realised one of the bags was missing. There was a rushed trip back to the centre to check at the checkout and all was revealed ... the girl had accidently put the bag into someone else's trolley. That isn't the end of the story. The woman who received the extra bag of groceries returned it to the checkout girls and they in turn returned it to the original owner. The woman who lost the parcel thanks the returner and really appreciates her honesty and said that every morning when they eat the rolled oats the person will be kindly thought of. Now that gives you some confidence in the world around us. *** EMU Park Pensioners will have a social on Wednesday, February 24 in Emu Park Cultural Hall starting at 1pm. You don't have to be a member to attend ... you don't even have to be a pensioner. If you wish to contribute with a musical item, please take your music with you.

Swimming club CAPRICORN Coast Swimming Club held a successful club night on Wednesday, with a good roll up of children, but again lacked support from parents. A club spokesman said it meant a late start to events because there was no-one to help out. "To run a tight schedule we need to have parental support," he said. "The monthly meeting was held on Tuesday, which was the second Tuesday of the month, and only five parents from four families turned up." On Wednesday the first presentation of Merit Achievment certificates took place. Award winners were Tony Beck, Joanne Ganter, Natalie Cumming, Kylie Shepphard, Stephen Phillips and Matthew Anderson. Rebecca Haubeck received her Merit Pennant for swimming 10m in 10 seconds, and has now been upgraded to 25m. Club swimmers will be going to Mt Morgan swimming carnival on Saturday. The following Saturday is the club's Sprint Relay Carnival. Good nominations from Capricorn Coast, Crescent Lagoon, Capricorn Club and Rockhampton's Aquajets have been submitted. Western Suburbs, Gladstone, Gladstone South and Gladstone Club, Frenchville, Fairy Mead (Bundaberg), Monto, Black-water, Biloela, Caribeae and St Brendan's will also be sending swimmers to the carnival. The club hopes it will be a great carnival attracting parental support. Parents able to help out on the day can contact Bill Cumming on 39 3994 or Brian Brettell on 39 2229.

Anyone who is interested is welcome. "We cater for all ages even though our name has little in it." The club holds a general meeting the second Tuesday of each month at the Club Hotel at 7.30pm.

For any further information phone 39 3541.

Aussie Rules sign-on YEPPOON Australian Rules' sign-on, for junior and senior teams, was a big success with more than 140 people turning up. About 90 seniors and juniors signed on for the 1988 season including nine for the under 1 1 s, 15 for the under 13s, 17 in the under 15s and 21 in the under 17 sides. There were 35 who signed up for the senior side as well as a number who sent in apologies. The total number of seniors could be boosted to about 50 players. Steve Burns held the first training session for the year and 26 seniors turned up. "Richard Pryor and Brisbane Bear's Mark Roberts came out to the sign on and spoke to some of the juniors and also took them for a short training run," publicity officer Ross Mclndoe said. "This was appreciated by the club management committee." Training times for under 11, under 13, and under 15 sides will be from 4pm to 5pm on Wednesday and Friday. Under 17s, 5pm to 6.30pm on Wednesday and Friday. Mr Mclndoe said support was still needed because there was still a shortage of numbers. "Any one interested can come along and be part of the club," he said. Senior training will be on Tuesday and Thursday from 5pm, onwards. Back-up is also needed by the club. First games for the season will be on February, 28.

Yeppoon Indoor Bowling Club team for the contest in the final is Cec and Mavis Brown, Ken and Alma Jones, Ken Crockett and May Birkett. Four games will be played and YIBC is Your friendly

among the top scorers and a good showing tonight could see the trophy coming to Yeppoon. Twentyfive YIBC players went to Rockhampton last Tuesday for social play with Frenchville club and an enjoyable morning was had. President Bernie Robson and games director Vi Robson are back after a month's holiday spent in Sydney and Griffith.

Coast had to survive for an hour before the end of the day's play. Coast lost its advantage as the top order batsmen failed to get on top of the bowling. When stumps were pulled up Capricorn Coast were three wickets down for 37 runs. Capricorn Coast now has the task of scoring a further 80 runs with seven wickets still in hand and a whole afternoon's play.

TWELVE Coast Japan Karate Association students have been intensively training since July 1987 to represent Australia at the First Youth World Karate Titles in March. The team members are Jason Scriffignano, Adele Young, Shane McDonald, Ian Murray, Daniel Higgins, Arno Breutmann, Dirk Breutmann, Brigitte Breutmann, Natalie Dooley, Sandra Fondacaro, Darren Humphries, and their instructor Chris Bulbrook, JKA 3rd Dan. Ages range from 11 to 20 years-old with on average five hours a day spent training. This has now been upgraded to six-and-a-half hours when weight training was included. Chris Bulbrook, who is a lecturer in human movements at Rockhampton's TAFE College, said he welcomed the weight training which was carried out under the supervision of Bakehouse Gym owner Mal O'Keeffe. "Weight training has been proven to all athletes in their performances," he said. "Mr O'Keeffe has widened his knowledge by attending seminars targetted at developing athletic performance through weight training. "As a weight lifting coach he is overseeing the squad's training personally." The National titles are on March 18 and 19, with the Australian team training from March 20 to 24, culminating with the World titles from March 25 to 27. About 2000 competitors from 40 nations are expected to attend the World titles and is regarded by students as the competitive pinnacle. To send the squad to the titles will cost about $12,000. The squad is made up of students at either school or university. Fundraising has already started with a hot dog stand held on New Year's Eve at Pine Beach, as well as a clean up day and various raffles. Mr Bulbrook said if any member of the community could help decrease the club's debt financially it would be appreciated. "It is always a shame for young Australian athletes to gain little support from communities they are representing," ht said. "Due to the fact this tournament is for the first, and possibly the last time, ever being held in Australia the pride and determination to succeed and be selected to represent the community and country is at its peak, to be denied financially, would be heartbreaking to any dedicated athlte.

Tke boa at the Klima WOMAN driving in Yeppoon this week was startled when a motor mower failed to give way to its right and cut (yuck, yuck) across her path. Woman stopped while mower put-putted in front of her pursued by another woman who had obviously been mowing the lawn in the street and had let machine get away from her while cutting the sloping driveway. Anyway, second woman caught up with the mower and headed back to finish the lawn while first woman recalled an incident that happened to her some years ago when mowing her lawn ... but that story has been told!!! *** THE Capricorn Coast Mirror is a equal opportunity employers ... that means everyone who works here has an equal opportunity to spend day and night at the office. It also means (in the grandAmerican tradition) that when the (figuratively speaking) managing director resigns, the paper hires a new office boy (person). That whopping wind-up has little to do with the rest of this ... you see, this week, the Mirror wound up with an office cat. It mewed in the door late Monday night, stayed Tuesday and defied all attempts to catch it Wednesday morning. Wednesday afternoon was another story ... the cat was caught, plonked in a cardboard box, and taken to Straz and Tina Stritzke's Yeppoon Stockfeed. There surrounded by pallets of biscuits and freezers full of `roo and beef, it will reside in luxury until some reader gives it a new home. This notice is inserted in case anyone in the vicinity of the Mirror office is down one kitten (a real cutie, by the way). Unfortunately, the equal opportunity policy at the office does not extend to kitty cats! ***

DAVE RUCK, the first Mirror sales rep, became so engrossed in his "equal opportunities" last week he forgot his wife's birthday. If that wasn't bad enough, he made the mistake of talking about it in the office ... hence this item!!! ***

BILL YOUNG, the poet in last week's letters page, was disappointed that chairman candidate Jim Turner had an answer to it in the same issue. The problem was, how did Jim Turner know the poem had been written and was being offered to the Mirror as a letter? He was told that the Mirror staff had shown the poem to Mr Turner ... but that was incorrect. No-one at the Mirror showed the poem to Mr Turner, read it to him, or even hinted of it. We assumed Mr Young had shown it to him before sending it to us because we also wondered how Mr Turner could reply to something in the same issue. Well, we did some checking (quite a bit) and we are almost certain we know how Mr Turner got wind of it. It most certainly was not through Mr Young, and, most definitely, was not through the Mirror ... but Mr Turner did reply to it. Mr Turner said he had a copy of the poem and it had been handed to him in a pub by someone who found it on top of a garbage tin. While that sounds like the proverbial item that "fell of the back of a truck" ... it certainly wasn't Mr Young's garbage tin ... not the Mirror's. Anyone dealing with the Mirror can be assured of complete confidentiality ... our whole business depends on it. During an election campaign you can expect to hear a lot of things about the Mirror ... if you do hear something -it sounds out of character with our paper, tell us ur version won't be as exciting, but it will the truth! ***

CHAP wandered into the ffice tl 's week with a clipping froi.. an old newspaper headed: Professional Rues for Decisions 'voidance. He said he found it in an old book —id suggested an item or so a week be printed in this column for the benefit of everyone thinking about the coming election. This is a sample: "Fandal's Rules for Administrators ... Rule 1, Hide, Rule 2, if they still find you, lie." Can't understand why he wanted it printed ... what could that possibly have to do with an election?
