(BOWEN: I TOOK OVER...IT WAS HORRENDOUS) All four candidates for the chairmanship of Livingstone Shire Council attended a debate at Yeppoon Town Hall on Saturday afternoon organised by Janine Cossar. They were each given six minutes to address the crowd. They were then given a further two minutes to make further remarks, then faced questions. 77te Capricorn Coast Mirror taped their six-minute talks and reproduces them, in full, for the benefit of die electors.

I THINK running for council is a very important thing. It's a thing I would like to see many people have some experience of. After three years you begin to realise what enormous tasks and responsibility you'll have. It takes about six years, I believe, to really get the feel of things. I've been a councillor for the past eight years and to me personally it's been a rewarding experience. It has taught me a great deal about society and caused me to think very deeply about the future of our beautiful nation such asAustralia. However, 20 months ago my telephone rang, I learnt that Mr Hartwig, the previous chairman, had resigned. A voice on the phone said:

"John, would you please take the opportunity that's given of being appointed the chairman in this emergency situation." That month was the highest month of real estate commission I had ever received in some 17 years of trading as a real estate agent. I looked at Lilian and said: "Well. Lilian, we've had a very hard, rough six years, do we really want to go back into that again. It has taken us a whole year to recover our business, because in the six years I was in council my assets had dropped considerably. The amount of time I put into council meant that I couldn't devote that time in my own business. As the result I had sold all my assets and reduced my land holdings down to the only

block I have which is the block that my house is on. Lilian saidwill you be an absolute so and so fool if you do because you've tried your best and I don't think you can give anymore. However, being a glutton for punishment I discussed it the following daywith Lilian and I said "Look, I would like to go, but the difficulty is the feeling of the community. If I take the chair I cannot act as a real estate agent. Which means that you will also lose your job and our earnings will drop to the rock bottom. Another day went by and Lilian said "Well John, looking at it this way, you put so much into it, I'll back you, even though it means that I myself also to be absolutely straight about it


TURNER: MADE A COMMITMENT TO STAND NO doubt standing here for chairman for the Livingstone Shire was brought about by the citizens in the community asking me to stand. That has gone back to Dick Tennent's time, also '86, '87. When I had two meetings down here in '87' I made that commitment. My experience with Local Government goes over many years, as many as my candidates' here going for the chair ... their terms added together. During that 21 years I have had vast experience. Vast experience in negotiating, negotiating with big companies ... BHP Utah, Theiss Dampier Mitsui, Blair Athol Coal, involved in a whole construction of a new town. That no doubt has given me a tremendous

amount of expertise and skill. It has also given me the opportunity to have tremendous contacts in Government departments. That is very, very important. I see here one, and I say with all sincerity, I have never seen a local authority in the community so far apart. That is my number one role is to bring the local government and community together. It is going to be team work that's going to do that. I have spoken of a community development officer. We have had one in Belyando who has netted in eight years S1.6 million, far outstripping any funds that has had to come out ... In fact, the State Government has given us,

Belyando, 560,000 for three years towards those wages, so I think that speaks for that. Further on we have the Local Government Association, where all Local Authorities are involved, we had the local association select Belyando as a shire that works so closely with local organisations that that may, with other local authorities, become a model throughout local government in this State of Queensland. Open council I've spoken about. Open council is one. I intend to get a press officer within the staff — no more employment there within the staff, to let you know month to month what is happening. They will be giving reports out to the press. There won't be any need for someone to come and see me, if they

do they are quite welcome anytime. I'll also direct the shire clerk to give that information out. Another thing I feel is that I see as a problem is letters unanswered. I certainly would want to know if someone writes a letter to council and they do not get any reply. Policies. I have read it and some say that I haven't come out with any policies. Well I don't know, somebody can't read the Mirror, they can't read the Bulletin. I've got pamphlets going out, some early before Christmas in fact, I believe I have put my policies forward, there is a pamphlet going out next week. That will take that up further.



IT'S not my intention today to dwell on the background of this election, performance of the current council, or its leadership. You'll have your views about that and I have mine. Any election is an important event in the life of the community. For us in Livingstone Shire, the election on March 19 is going to be vitally important. It will be, for us, an opportunity for a fresh, new start. With a new council there will be a chance for healing and settlement of the deep divisions which have marred our community image and hampered our progress. Whatever the results of the March 19 election, I hope that all four of uswill be able to cooperate to realise the common goals we will

each no doubt express this afternoon. Only one of us will be successful. Never-the-less, because I'm confident we each aspire to achieve the sound management of council's affairs, and the benefit of the community, the three runners-up will resume their place in the community with a graciousness, a goodwill and a willingness to co-operate in seeing the new council succeed. On March 19 you, the electors, will have made your choice. Only one of us will be given the high honour and great responsibility of leading our council. I believe you will make your judgement on the basis of which one of us can best deal and best heal the divisions and promote within the

community the trust and confidence in council which is so lacking. As a candidate I've gdne to great pains to remain independent of any of the divisive groups or factions which unfortunately exist within our community. I resisted offers to join these groups and I have had no backing from any element pursuing vested interest, retribution or control. I believe I speak for the wider community, the wider section of the community which wants to see a return to stability, harmony and the wise management of the council's slender resources. As a candidate I've made a commitment that I will not make any promises. To do so would be

to sow seeds of disputation. As your shire chairman I will be committed to actively developing close harmony and team work. I wish to promote trust and to create opportunities for each of the councillors to express their particular interests and abilities in such a way that confidence can develop and opportunities arise for all to achieve. I believe that an achieving council is a happy council. Under my leadership council will not be a one-man band. I present myself as a candidate as one who's not been involved in any of the bitter brawls which has brought this council limping to the end of its term. I've not associated with any of the factions, I


WILDIN REALLY THINK ABOUT THAT HURT I'VE been a part of the Livingstone Shire for six years which is probably one of the most horrendous periods, except perhaps the session before, that this shire has ever been through. And I ask you to cast your minds back to think about that. Ten years, 10 years of pain and agony ... discontent, disillusionment and uncertainty. Really think about it, why that hurts? I'm not going to tell you why, I'm asking you to tell. Think about it and make your own decisions as to why that happened. I also ask you to think about why it has suddenly changed. And I will tell you that, because in the last three years perhaps some people have achieved a goal and you have a

council basically made up of people who genuinely care about their community ... who have always cared about their community. They haven't created hassles and attention at the table; they haven't made life for staff and council elected members and for the public, impossible. Roads, sewerage, water, drainage, all the everyday things that local authorities are committed to provide for the people, I've done, regardless of who would be in the chair, and I would say any chairman, and I see one in Roy Wall sitting now in the body of the audience, have to be given a medal .... to be able to keep providing those services in a time of total disruption.

ability to pay is getting smaller and smaller. We live in a shire where our infrastructure has been practically nothing in the last 10 to 12 years. The infrastructure to be able to meet, the development that's taken place in this shire and will continue to take place in the shire have been put down and paid for by you people. Not a great many ratepayers are meeting that debt. I can't condemn the present council for increasing its debt by S2.1 or S2.3 million. Any shire that has an infrastructure problem and is going to do what needs to be done to provide that infrastructure must raise debts. There are only two ways of doing it ... raising loans or getting the money directly from you

SANDMINING PUBLIC TALKS THE proposed sand mining at Bayfield will be the topic of discussion at a public meeting at 7.30pm on Thursday, March 3, at Bayview Tower. RZ Mines managing director Bob Kelly will give a talk on company views of the proposed sand mining. Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry president AndrewMcLelland said the chamber was hosting the meeting after Mr


Kelly had approached Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton to give RZ Mine's side of the story. Mr McLelland said Mr Kellywould talk about the potential benifits to the community and also address concerns people have about mining. A video of past mining projects, (before and after), will also be shown. Mr McLelland said questions would be welcomed.

LEGISLATION for the introduction of vital protective measures for Central Queensland's scallop industry will be introduced to State Parliament, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week. He had been advised by Primary Industry Minister Neville Harper his case on behalf of Capricorn Coast fisherman for a 130 meat pieces per kilo limit had been successful. "From March 1, the meat count measures will be introduced on a voluntary basis, and full cooperation from the industry is requested in making the measures effective," he said. "Department of Primary Industry officers arc now working on suitable procedures for the policing of meat count measures and when they are finalised they will be embodied in State Parliament legislation. "I am pleased at the Minister's response to my request because the meat count measure is supported by fisherman, including the Yeppoon Branch Queensland Commercial Fishermen's Organisation, as well as the processing sector."

THE CAPRICORN Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry meets on Tuesday, March 1, in the Bayroom at Bayview Tower. The meeting starts at 6.30pm. President Andrew McLelland said included in the agenda would be the presentations to the shop assistant of the month and business person of the month. "A local guest will talk about aspects of small business management," he said. "Discussions will also be held about associate membership." Mr McLelland said members, visitors and potentially new members were invited to attend.

Mr Hinton said the meat count restriction would greatly restrict the number of immature and undersized scallops being taken from the scallop grounds, particularly during the breeding season in winter when scallops were at their leanest. "It should almost certainly ensure sufficient scallops are left in the beds for breeding and regeneration purposes," he said. ADVERTISEMENT

KS coastguard forging ahead IN only five years the Keppel Sands Coast Guard will have developed from a home-operated radio service into an independent unit with radar facilities benefiting all Central Queensland people. Keppel Sands Coast Guard is about three months away from completing its new building which will house full radar and radio facilities. Construction work has just started. When finished it will have a raised observatory room, sleeping quarters, chart room and meeting room ... which also combines as the kitchen, dining and training room. Group spokesman Peter Ladynski said ideas for a building first surfaced about 1985. After finding a position ideally suited for its plans, Coast Guard representatives submitted an application to the Lands Administration Commission. The site chosen is on the South Keppel Sands headland which is situated at the mouth of Pumpkin Creek. Uninterrupted views of Zilzie Beach, North Keppel, South Keppel, Cattle Point, Cape Capricorn, Curtis Bay and all islands in Keppel Bay enhances the position. Radar range would be 96 nautical miles and could show all possible cyclone movement onshore and offshore. Mr Ladynski said the benefits would extend both to boat owners as well as Central Queensland people in general. "The equipment can warn boating people about how fast a storm is moving." Positioning the building on the headland will also mean that on a clear day, larger boats and small boats outfitted with radar reflectors, could be seen up to 40 nautical miles away. Mr Ladynski said this would help in monitoring the progress of a ship in distress. Smaller boats not using the radar reflector wouldn't be seen as far away as one with a reflector. "The reflector, made out of alfoil, can track a boat 40 nautical miles away, but wooden or fibreglass boats-without these reflectors can't send back a signal," he said. "The radar unit is designed to give the time, angle and degrees of any movement in the sea and members can relay the message to the various services if it could be a potential emergency." "Operators are now manning radios in Keppel Sands 24 hours a day. All three licensed radio units are in private residences. "It's hard for Coast Guard members to be rostered on times which also work in with house-plans where radios are stationed.

"The new building will give these members a greater ability to participate in rosters without feeling as if they are intruding." Mr Ladynski said without support and help from people everywhere, the cost to build would have been about $47,000. However a number of people are using their skills to reduce this cost. "To name a few, PGH has greatly reduced prices on mega-bricks, which require no maintenance or painting," he said. "Burkes Transport helped with the mammoth task of delivering the bricks, N and B Humphries Plumbing are doing free work and Sellers Concrete have also reduced cement bag prices." Mr Ladynski said a special thank you should go to bricklayer Rosco Forohanfl, and George Wilson, who is retired, and also the Keppel Sands Rural Fire Brigade for giving up time to help. "What has also been great is the support from Keppel Sands people," he said. "We have had to raise a lot of our money because the Government was only able to give 75 cents for every dollar raised. "The Coast Guard has run raffles and operated a stall at the show which Keppel Sands residents have supported." He said many had also pledged to help with the building's construction. "Their help means our costs will be greatly reduced," he said. Radar unit prices range from about 515,000 to about $27,000. Coast Guard members will probably buy a 515,000 unit which fullfils the 96 nautical mile radius. A DC generator, costing about $8000, will ensure Keppel Sands will have an idependent operation, while further plans for solar panellingwill charge the generator's four batteries (a single 12-volt battery costs about S200). Mr Ladynski said a wind charger would boost the ability to generate electricity in all weather conditions. "We are pleased with piogress so far. We hope to finish the foundations this week and have a lockable and operational building within about three months," he said. "It was a major task the 29 Coast Guard members took on but a well worthwhile service for all Central Queensland people in the long run." He said the Keppel Sands Coast Guard was formerly a section of the Yeppoon Coast Guard but became a flotilla about 1985. "Keppel Sands also has a station at Fitzroy River's mouth," he said.

LIVINGSTONE SHIRE COUNCIL ELECTIONS Ballot papers have now been posted to all persons whose names appear on the Voters Roll (which has been compiled from the State Electoral Roll) and electors are encouraged to ring the Returning Officer (393388) if they have not received their ballot paper by the 4th March, 1988. In most instances, unclaimed ballot papers will by then have been returned to the Council offices by Australia Post, and can be redirected to the elector's current mailing address upon request. Where a person's name has been omitted from the Voters' Roll, and such person was entitled to be enrolled for the Shire of Livingstone at 31st December, last, such person may make application for a vote before 4.00pm on the 18th March, 1988. Electors are encouraged to follow the instructions on the ballot paper carefully, and to return the completed ballot paper in the pre-paid post envelope enclosed, at their earliest convenience. It is important that a vote be recorded for both the office of Chairman on the top part of the ballot-paper, by placing a figure 1 in the square opposite the candidate of your choice, and also for the number of Members to represent your Division, by placing consecutive figures, commencing with figure 1, in the squares opposite the candidates of your choice. Do not put any extra marks or writing on the ballot paper, and do not used Liquid Paper or similar products to make corrections. It is not necessary to fill in all the squares, only those required for the actual number of positions to be filled. Persons who accidently destroy or deface their ballot paper may make application for a replacement paper also, but will be required to return the original paper before a new one is issued. Electors may return their ballot papers direct to the locked ballot box at the Council office, Yeppoon, during office hours up to 4.30pm on Friday, 18th March, 1988 and between the hours of 8.30am and 10am on election day, 19th March, 1988, if necessary. Persons who receive more than one (1) ballot paper; or a ballot paper for persons who have left that address or who are deceased; are requested to note details on the post paid reply envelope, enclose the blank ballot paper, and return same to the Returning Officer to facilitate corrections to the Roll. Candidates or their paid agents are not permitted to attest votes signatures on the certificate attached to the foot of the ballot paper, nor are they permitted to receive or take any ballot paper from a voter - please do not ask them to mail or deliver your ballot paper for you.

A DANGEROUS bend adjacent Farnborough State Primary School will be considered by Livingstone Shire Council as a major priority in roadworks. Cr Geoff Cue, in submitting a notice of moI tion, said concerned parents wanted council to I fix the potentially fatal corner. He said parents wanted the 100km/h speed limit reduced to 60km/h for the section of Farnborough Road passing the school. I "This should be reduced to the north past the sharp bend adjacent to the school," he said. I "It would ensure southbound traffic would I have sufficient time to slow down and negotiate the bend without risk of losing control and I ploughing into the school grounds or I principal's house." I Cr Cue said the road was under Main Roads control and he had contacted them to try and .1 find a solution. • "District engineer Kev Kerr said his department intended widening Farnborough Road, funds permitting, from Woodwind Valley junc• tion north to Hinz Avenue intersection," Cr I Cue said. "The problem was discussed further and three options were looked at." The options discussed were re-aligning the I road to remove the sharp bend; modifying the approaches to the bend reducing its severity; Iand reducing the speed limit from about Collins Road corner to an appropriate northern point.

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council has agreed to extending The Caves Barmoya School bus route. The Barmoya Bus Committee asked council to approve an 8km extension to the existing bus route. Shire engineer Pat Murphy said council, in agreeing to the extension, must be prepared to maintain the roads to an adequate, safe standard for the school bus. "At present, the majority of the road could be considered satisfactory for the school bus," he said. -Councillors agreed to letting the shire clerk authorise the intended extension.

Cr Cue said the first option was costly and could not be done until next financial year. "You would also still have cars travelling at 100km/h," he said. "Option two is under investigation by Main Roads but the speed limit would still remain at 100km/h. "The third option would assist in reducing the present danger and allow time to consider a permanent solution." Cr Cue said whatever option was adopted the bend still required ugent attention. Shire engineer Pat Murphy told council the best solution to the present poor horizontal alignment was option one. "The approaches couldn't be modified without considerable permanent works and Main Roads would be reluctant to reduce regulatory speed for through traffic because advisory speed signs already existed," he said. Councillors said the issue was a high priority for future roadworks. ADVERTISEMENT

Bowen says it was horrendous • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 will not be able to deal. So 1 returned the answer yes, I would help get the council out of the turmoil. I took over. It was horrendous. The first thing I did was purchase a very large tape recorder. It's about that size and about that deep. There was no hope at that moment getting council consent because the table was so divided, and with the enormous problems - I had streams of people coming in everyday - piles of files to go through to try and sought out the problems. I tackled them at the rate of four or five a day and tried to solve, without making anymore, at least two or three a week and then with good will of each month's meeting when the councillors got along, we gradually, I believe, got down that pile of problems. The result is now we got rid of all appeals. An appeal, ladies and gentlemen, would cost you easily S10,000, so when it cost the council 510,000 in court ... it's the ratepayers money. I'm happy to say in the last two years we have had no losses in court. We've never been to 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 -- 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 Iwould like to address: the setting up of a Statutory Water and Sewerage Board, which would operate independently from the Councif. 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 hoard 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 and Keppel Sands Caravan Parks have the poorest facilities imaginable. They need immediate upgrading or. failing this, handing over to provate 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.

court. The council, I believe, in the last three years and I speak for the council now, not so much for myself. But the council in the last three years has, I believe, stopped the escalation of great increases. In fact, none of the increases during the past three years has been as high as the consumer price index and, to date, The Caves water rate went down $20 per house, Marlborough water $72. Rural block construction rates are down. Down by seven per cent in one area and three in another and 7.6 in another. I can tell you all the nice thingsyou would like to hear, but every candidate here will tell you we need a nursing home, we need play grounds, we need cycle ways, we need all those things. But all I can say is in the last two years we have made more progress in obtaining those things. We won millions of dollars worth of money from the Government. I believe the council has settled and is now working very very well indeed. And I would challenge anyone to come up with facts and figures to prove otherwise. Well, ladies and gentlemen, let's staywith the strength. Let us make this place a greater place. Let us not hear tittle-tattle and carry it on without first substantiating that what you hear is the truth.

Turner honours commitment • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Roads, of course, I believe is very important ... vital here. I notice people even here this evening that are concerned about their roads. I'm glad to see Mr Timbs got on to the message on roads. David it is a problem in Queensland. You mentioned Professor Self, I had the same opportunity of being investigated, or, on the hearing of Professor Self, but no doubt the problems still come back to Federal Funding. Federal funding is so low and it's cutting back. We've got to be able to do something about that. Now what concerns me very much is your loan debt. Nowyour loan debt here was, I think when John had taken over, something like S14 million, I remember reading that in the Mirror. I believe now it's S16.5 maybe a little more. There's S2.4 million of that of course involved in the water treatment, that's essential. I say John, to you and your council, congratulations at least for getting that moving. Now let me say that is going to cost, when to phase that in, irrespective of whether it is two to three years, that's going to put water rates up 20 per cent. Sewerage in Emu Park if going onto the Park itself, they couldn't afford it. Put over the whole of the shire it will mean another 35 per cent increase. Now, that to me, is something we have to watch and I would be watching, if you give me that opportunity, very very closely. In administration costs, Belyando Shire expenditure for some S17 million, Livingstone expenditure S16 million. Now that comes from a statistical survey of local authorities that is given by the authorities to the Queensland Local Government Department and that then is put together. Livingstone is some S200,000 more extra in administration. Now I don't know why. I can't say, I'm not in there and I don't know what the problem is. John might know, but that is the variation between my shire, previous shire, and the Livingstone Shire; it's some 5200,000 more. I would certainly be looking at that and at road borrowing. That's another one that I say to Local Authorities - you borrow money for roads and gravel roads, particularly. By the time you keep on going -- S250,000 this year -- you'll end up borrowing just to pay your interest in redemption.

Having said f will make no promises I can advise you of some of the measures I would like to see council pursue and which I hope I would be able to negotiate to fruition. I don't intend to engage in any auctions to outbid my opponents as to who will offer the most. I believe such an exercise in vote buying is undignified. Rather if you have any specific queries about what I would hope to see council achieve in respect to roads, water, sewerage, drainage or any engineering projects or if you want to know my views on pensioner rebates, community development, tourism and economic developments, dogs, dust, open council, legal expenses, aged care, federal/state relations, secrecy, land developers and real estate agents, national parks, environmental parks, strategic plans, rates, valuations, town planning, beach litter, footpaths, weeds and water pressure, political parties, rural representation, Iwasaki Sangyo, storm water drainage, meeting procedures, television reception, you name it, if you want to know it just ask me. I've got nothing to hide.


Your ballot paper will arrive soon. Please remember you must vote for five (5) candidates in Division 2 and a Chairman for the Shire. Maurie Webb THE WORKER suggests he has the experience to do the job for you. For honesty and integrity and no personal gain ...

Authorised by M D Webb, 38 Cliff Street, Yeppoon

Make Maurie Webb THE WORKER one of the top five.

If you want to know about tourism, about art and culture, about airports, council debt, job opportunities for our youth, council staff, industrial estates, mining development. Anything at all ... just ask me. I've got nothing to hide. I'm an open book. Because•I've got nothing to hide and because I believe very strongly in open council, I would like you to know that .I would, as chairman, endeavour to initiate better lines of communication with residents and ratepayers. In this regard I will show a lead by being available for regular interviews with the public. I believe residents must not feel isolated from the decision making process. I would therefore like to put to council a proposal for a new structure of community advisory committees. As chairman, I would seek to implement a policy which would ensure that every ratepayer is provided with a much improved annual report of council's activities. This report in a clear and precise manner would detail council's aims and objectives, financial status, reserves and indebtedness, organisation and projected works programmes, to mention but a few of the areas in which we can improve our information and accountability. My experience in local government has convinced me that Local Government is a most vital form of Government. I want to open the doors of Livingstone Shire. I want to make it your council, working for you. I've nominated to work full time on your behalf for a better community. I serve no vested interests. I offer valuable experience and study in the area of local government and public administration. I ask for your support in developing a council we will all be proud of.

New spotlight in hall A $1445 quote by Coast business CO Switchboards to install a spotlight in Yeppoon Town Hall was accepted by Livingstone Shire Council. Shire clerk Jim Brown said that following the December meeting, when council voted to meet initial costs to install lights, letters were sent to four electricians for quotations. Three businesses replied to the clerk's letters. CQ Switchboards gave the lowest quote with $1445, while Lester Findlay said S1548 would cover the proposed work and Central Queensland Electrics quoted $1625.

ROWE SAYS... BEEN THERE, SEEN IT ALL, AND NOT AFRAID TO TELL At present LIVINGSTONE SHIRE has a Council that: ■Refused to indicate any acceptance of Judge Gibney's findings in the Commission of Inquiry ■Refused to accept the recommendation of a Magistrate and Appeal Board ■Refused to comply with the latest recommendation of the State Ombudsman ■Refused to comply with the opinion of the Solicitor General ■Refuses to comply with the requirements of the Local Government Act and the advices of Council's own Solicitor in relation to 'Illegal Expenditure' ■Refuses to accept the advices of the Beach Protection Authority ALL THESE FACTS CAN BE WHOLLY SUBSTANTIATED BY THE OFFICIAL RECORDS

I put the questions: 1 Do current Livingstone Shire councillors foolishly believe that they are beyond the authority of the judicial system? 2 Do they consider that they are a law unto themselves? 3 Do Electors sincerely believe that any matter put before this current Council will receive fair and just consideration? Why don't ratepayers ask: ■Why is it that YEPPOON ratepayers have the 18th highest rates in Queensland out of 134 Local Authorities? ■Why will Yeppoon ratepayers have the 5th highest rates when the Water Treatment Plant and the Emu Park Sewerage Scheme come on line? ■Was the fact that Judge Gibney found that Tony Rowe was 'not only a competent Engineer, but that his dedication, loyalty, and integrity were beyond question' incompatible with their standards? This mob have had their chance for the past 3 years. Livingstone still has the secrecy, the political bluster and blunder and is known Australia wide as a place to avoid.

THIS MAN IS WANTED! WHY? Because ... 1 2

Chairman promised to reduce the $14 million debt. The debt is now $16.493 million.


A further $2.7 million has been budgetted for Emu Park sewerage. If proceeded with, this will put Yeppoon sewerage rates up by at least a minimum of 20 per cent.


The $2.4 million for water treatment means a 20 per cent rise is coming.

He's a Clean Skin...

This is a 40 per cent rate rise without even adding on year-toyear inflation. Can the average ratepayer cope anymore?




Livingstone administration costs in 1986-87 were $944,000 on expenditure of $16 million. Why are they $220,000 above Belyando Shire Council's administration costs when that shire's expenditure was $17 million?


Another candidate says he can do more for you but does not say how. Why has he not told us the length of his Local Government experience? Is it only 3 years and 1 month ... or less?


Local Government Acts and Operations are vastly different in New South Wales compared with Queensland.


Can Livingstone Shire afford inexperience?


Can Livingstone Shire be used as a stepping stone to Hinton's seat in Parliament? -- "No!"


One Councillor could not make up her mind about nominating for Chairman until 20 minutes before nominations closed. (Indecisive action?)


Let's give credit where credit is due ... Thanks Denis Hinton (Member for Broadsound) for your efforts in obtaining $20 million for this area ($7 million of which will be spent on the Rockhampton City-to-Yeppoon Road) and thanks Member for Capricornia Keith Wright for assistance for Army Roads.

Vote 'for David Timbs and gain ... no factions, no fights Authorised by D P Timbs, Lammermoor Beach


The right decision now can put the right ideas into Livingstone Shire Council. There's no need for the' Capricorn Coast to become a dumping ground for old-fashioned development ideas ... the same ideas that turned the Gold Coast into a Concrete Jungle. I see our Capricorn Coast as the last oasis on the East Coast of Australia; • The last place where people can live in the sun without the towering high-rises blotting out the view; • The last place where people can walk freely in the streets without fear of mugging because of poorly developed ghettos where fellow Australians turn to a life of crime to eke out a miserable existence; • The last place where children can have a childhood worth looking back on because of unspoilt beauty surrounding them. Together we can see our Capricorn Coast develop the right way; where high-rise has its place; where medium-rise units nestle into hill sides and where residential areas provide us, the residents, with our own piece of paradise knowing we have no fear of concrete jungles invading our privacy. I have seen resort areas where development and conservation have gone hand-in-hand for the benefit of all and I will fight to see these ideas incorporated into Livingstone Shire Council by-laws. The sitting councillors have had their chance. They have fought among themselves, squabbled with the staff, gone cap-in-hand to State and Federal Governments and tried to turn us, the ratepayers, into mendicants. We deserve better ... and so does the Capricorn Coast. I offer my services to you, the people of the Capricorn Coast. I have nominated for division 2, where I have lived for more than seven years. I have been in business in Yeppoon for more than 16 years. I have paid my dues ... I am part of the Capricorn Coast and I am prepared to help it progress along planned, organised lines. I carry no grudges; I serve no masters ... except you, the electors. I know what the Coast needs but I need your help ... I must have one of your five votes on the division 2 ballot paper. Please, when casting your votes for Division 2, think of your future and children's future and give me your vote. The only promise I make is that you won't be disappointed.



DIVISION 2 Livingstone Shire Council candidate Maurie Webb said this week he had intended to run a campaign without personally attacking anyone but "last Saturday's public meeting changed that stance," he said. "How anyone could stand on a public platform and declare the previous administration left the shire in a deficit situation, beats me," he said. "This is simply untrue, as the following facts from the annual accounts and estimates booklet issued showing the balances as at June 30, 1985, will show. "Any shire chairman should check his facts: general fund credit, $220,584.49; water undertaking credit, $237,871.47; sewerage and cleansing fund, $315,988.66 in credit." Mr Webb said the only account in the red had been the Caves water undertaking, around $20,000. He said it made him see red when he was part of the administration that did a top job under Roy Wall's leadership,and he took the statement as an attack on his own credibility. "I was disgusted with the Dorothy Dixer questions from the floor," he said. "It was strange that the chairman had the right paperwork for those questions ... although he didn't have all the answers." Mr Webb said anyone who played the voters for suckers had a lot to answer for. "For heaven's sake we have to be honest about shire matters," he said. "The ratepayer has a right to be treated seriously and with respect. "I never have had any difficulty with treating people honestly."

anything or get any where until we can do that and that means all of the faction groups, all of the members of council, all of the people who make up the Livingstone Shire have to really look at their situation and decide in which direction they want to go. You know, council is council. You elect us as representatives to do what you think we should be doing. But you are the people, it's your community, it's your money we're spending. I would like to see every member of this community, tell us or give us some direction in what you want us to do, or where you want to go, or what you want to achieve, because it seems to me that very quickly that's forgotten in all elected governments. You're elected and then you forget that it's the people who are paying, it is the people's community, it is their quality of life. , And that is one thing I would really like to see as chairman of Livingstone Shire. It is your community, we will provide the infrastructure, the water, the sewerage, the drainage ... all of those things and God help us, there's plenty to do. We can only do it as quickly as is possible for you the people to pay, because whether the money comes from the government in grants or whether raised in taxes, you ultimately pay.







Chairman As Chairman of Livingstone, I will help to promote the creation of interesting children's play parks and playgrounds in a number of urban areas.

Authorised by J Bowen, P 0 Box 266, Yeppoon


COUNCILLORS HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY Dear Electors, You will all remember me, the councillor sworn in mid term to face salvaging the fragments of Livingstone Shire Council. A divided, hostile council presented little glamour. I knew that I must enter council without any preconceived ideas or prejudice and make decisions on the merits or demerits of each case as it is presented to the table. Any prior commitment to support a particular group or sector means you are serving factional interests and not the community as a whole. Councillors have a responsibility to honour their Oaths and Declaration of Office. I have always acted responsibly and made decisions at the table independently of other councillors. The evidence of this must be the absence of the customary "Blow-ups" at council meetings. Livingstone Shire is not lost and can continue the stability maintained since my appointment. My policy is to maintain and improve our standards of living.





Capricorn Coast Mirror February 27 -- March 4, 1988 ADVERTISEMENT

The Wildin I WILL BRING THE COUNCIL TO YOU! So that each Division can see how Livingstone Shire Council spends Your money, I will ensure at least one meeting a year will be held in each Division. They will not be full council meetings ... they will only deal with matters affecting the Division hosting the meeting. I will pay the hall hire and bus transport costs from the Chairman's allowance. I will not accept any increase in the allowance. You will meet the councillors and the officers. You will be able to ask questions. It's your Council -- You have the right to see it working for You!

Referendum on Sewerage

Upgrade water YES: I WILL continue upgrading our water supply. The work has already been done; the planning completed; the bills paid ... over the PAST 9 YEARS (NOT 22 months).

NO: I WON'T give a commitment to sewer Emu Park. I will gather every scrap of information on the best way to sewer this area and I will make full costings available for public scrutiny. Nothing, absolutely nothing, will be hidden. And, when all of this information has been made available, I will ask council to hold a referendum. YOU WILL DECIDE IF YOU CAN AFFORD SEWERAGE. No pressure groups or "squeaky wheels" will push us into the quagmire of debt. Everyone will have an equal say!

Upgrade roads YES: I WILL continue to upgrade roads. I will get the Engineering Department to draw up a plan that shows every unsealed road. I will then work with ALL of the Councillors to allocate priorities. YOUR representatives will say what YOU want!

No frustration with council

More Books YES: I WILL provide more books in our Libraries. I arranged for a State Library Field Officer to assess Livingstone Shire's needs and I will use that report to bring books to the reader. I will discuss with Community Organisations, such as the Blue Nurses and Mealson-Wheels, an idea to have books delivered to and picked up from house-bound residents.

Open Council YES: I WILL provide Open Government. I fought the present chairman when he stripped the information from council's agenda ... and won, so that the Press and Public could know what was going on. I fought the present chairman when he took council meetings behind closed doors ... and I won. My policy has always been to answer any questions. If more information is needed, I will find out.

NO: I WON'T threaten anyone. If you don't like something you will have the right to express yourself without fear. You won't need a solicitor to talk to council. You may not get what you want ... but you will be able to get it off your chest. There is no need to feel frustration when dealing with the council.

I WILL BURY THE PAST! I WILL create an environment at the Shire Administration Centre which will be in touch with what you, the people who pay the bills, want. You will have qualified, full-time staff on the counters to answer your queries. There won't be part-time consultants costing tens of thousands of dollars. There will be full-time officers who will live among us, be a part of us, and know what we want. I will bury the past!

I WILL HOLD REGULAR INFORMATION MEETINGS These Information Meetings will be held at various times in different Divisions. I will review the Council's activities since the previous meeting and outline what lies ahead. Everyone will get the chance to ask questions. You will not need a pressure group to make yourself heard. All Councillors and Officers will be invited to attend but attendance will not be compulsory. We all live here. It's Your money. Let's spend it the right way. I will show there is no need for secrecy!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Facts on bins at Cawarral I DO not usually respond to the outrageous from Cr Giorgi but as usual, Cr Giorgi is guilty of misrepresenting the facts, this time on the Cawarral wheelie bin meeting. The facts: 1.Our community voted overwhelmingly to reject the wheelie bin introduction despite Cr Giorgi's determination to impose them on us. 2.The meeting at times proved unruly for two reasons - the arrogance and utter stupidity of Cr Giorgi's high-handed attitude and the total incompetence of the chairman appointed by Cr Giorgi. 3. Cawarral and Mt Chalmers did not ask for wheelie bins or any other bins and the majority of ratepayers had no need for them as they dispose of their rubbish on their own properties. 4. The figures offered RE. cost of service by Cr Giorgi and Cr McDonald and backed up by the health surveyor were highly suspect ,as they didn't add up. 5. The industrial bin was the only service received from the council apart from road maintenance for which a separate levy is paid. Therefore, to suggest we were out to get something for nothing is false and quite ridiculous. 6. If, as Cr Giorgi alleges, the industrial bins — are illegal for the collection of household refuse, why is it that these bins can still be seen throughout the Shire and elsewhere in residential situations some 18 months or so since the health department and council deemed them unsuitable and illegal for the disposal of this refuse? - Lloyd Webber, Tungamull Road, Cawarral.

Peace, quiet I HAVE been a resident of Yeppoon for 12 years. When I think back over the past five or six years and remember the fighting and quarrelling which took place regularly in Livingstone Shire Council in those days and compare it with the peace and quieet which is the order of the day now, feel a great deal of respect and admiration for the present chairman, John Bowen, for the way in which he has calmed things down since he became chairman. As vice president of the Causeway Progress Association I feel very pleased with the improvement in roadworks carried out and the planting of trees. So I ask before you fill in your voting paper think carefully and remember those bad times a few years ago, and remembel how much better things are now. I feel that Cr Bowen should be given the chance to continue the good work. Coming from the back, I would never change my horse in midstream, I would keep to the horse I know does the better job. - Budge Edwards, 27 Ware Avenue, Causeway.

Make it known AS chairman of the Keppel Sands Advancement League I would like it known that Cr Duncan McDonald haas been an interested and regular attender at our meetings. He has consistently drawn the attention of the Livingstone Shire Council to our requests and problems, CrAnn Giorgi has also worked hard for us. - E.C.Daniels, 28-30 Schofield Parade, Keppel Sands.

The payment is the Family Allowance Supplement. It is tax-free and is paid at a maximum rate of $22 a week for each child under 13 and $28 a week for children aged 13, 14 or 15. The exact amount depends on how much money your family earns and how many children you have.




The Family Allowance Supplement is in addition to your Family Allowance (formerly Child Endowment). Anyone who already receives a Social Security pension or benefit has had their child payment increased automatically to the same amount. However, everyone else will have to fill in a separate claim form. Ring the Telephone Hotline 221 1288 for information or to be sent a claim form. Callers outside the metropolitan area ring (008) 017 007.

Trip to home RECENTLY my son and I had a week's visit to my childhood home. How different everything is now, 60 years later! Progress through the years of plenty, which have given life to the old town. In my day we depended on the channel country floods to bring life. But then after the water had fallen again in the Diamantina, and the hot sun had dried the beautiful grass and the wild flowers, which bloomed in the millions on the sandhills after the flooding; then everybody became particularly careful of the precious water. Now hot and cold pipes are supplied in every home, electric lights take a most superior place, and the scanty rain is never missed, except in the vast stretches of cattle country. Top quality beef has been produced from that wonderful channel country over the years, as has been proved time and time again in the Adelaide markets. `Planes frequently land on the airstrip in Birdsville, and on November 28, 1987, it was humming with activity, because David Brook was 40! A big celebration was planned for that night, preparations were going on for weeks inadvance, and guests arrived by the dozen. That night we were all treated to entertainment, and attractive food and drink in the wide, calm, open air. Coloured lights and balloons and many party tables, set beautifully, rivalled the brightness of the clear stars in that vast outback sky. A lovely calm evening. After the guests had flown out next day, back to various homes, my son and I wandered around taking many snaps, called at the pub that famous Birdsville pub - and had a yarn with some bushmen there. I remarked on a clock, which was operating backwards! The numbers looked so strange on the incorrect sides. One old bloke said it had the batteries in upside-down he thought. Then another drawling joker said: "Well, you see, this is tick-free country, the clocks only tock". Because of airfreight, goods are expensive in the only store, but nobody in the town or district pays anything for meat, except bacon, or chicken. A butcher's shop is unheard of, and this has been so for years. The cattlemen kill, in turn, and everyone is happy continuing thus. In Birdsville, the color of a man's skin makes no difference at all, and the state school teaches them togetherness in every way. Since my parents lived in this.old border town in the 20s, the mode of living has advanced for the betterment of its people, and even heat is not hard to bear now, with airconditioning and water flowing constantly from the artesian bore, who cares! -Abbie Schick, 14 Birdwood Estate, Yeppoon.

Rowe inquiry FURTHER to Mr Kit ching's remarks re the Rowe enquiry being conducted behind closed doors and commissioner Fitzgerald's remark that justice cannot be done behind closed doors (it must be seen to be done, a statute of British justice), I seem to remember the terms of the Rowe enquiry were not absolute. In other words restrictions or limitations were placed on the scope of the enquiry so can it be called a full enquiry? And how can Mr Rowe claim similarity to the Fitzgerald enquiry? - H Brownsdon, PO Box 286, Yeppoon.

Bravo Rowe! I'D like to congratulate Tony Rowe for enlightening readers of the true position re the shire's actual loan debt as opposed to the version authorised by the present chairman for ;public consumption. It is most unfortunate that ratepayers have been deceived to the extent they have by the chairman and members of this council particularly during the last election on the need for open council and made great play of the necessity to reduce the 514.5 million loan debt as it then was. Can we as ratepayers afford another three years of secrecy and deceipt? -- Lloyd Webber, Cawarral.

Webber has sewerage proposal L

LIVINGSTONE Shire Division one candidate Lloyd Webber believes that Emu Park's septic problems can be overcome without the need for expensive sewerage connections. He said that the majority of Emu Park/Zilzie residents "seemed perfectly happy with their septic systems and it seems quite unfair to impose a heavy financial burden on these people for a service they neither need nor could afford". "It would make far greater sense for council to come to the assistance of the few who are experiencing serious problems with their septic systems by looking at the alternatives to sewerage connections for these difficult areas. "There are several systems which more effectively and hygenically dispose of toilet waste than either septic or sewerage and the Clivus

Multrum system, in particular, should be seriously considered by council as a way of solving the immediate problems," Mr Webber said. "This system has been in use for many years overseas and, in fact, many shires thoughout Queensland have installed them. From discussion with the engineers of some of these shires, the system has proven to be safe, clean, efficient and economical. "The advantages of a waterless, decomposing type system such as Clivus Multrum are many. But the main asset is that there are no on-going costs for either the ratepayer of the council. I believe a full investigation should be carried out with the view to having such a low maintenance system installed in all future buildings in the Emu Park area."

Wall attacks rate arrears

ALL TAKEAWAYS Open from 7.30am 7 days-a-week SIT-DOWN MEALS Normanby Street, Yeppoon

FORMER shire chairman and Division 2 candidate Roy Wall said that at the public meeting held in the Yeppoon Town Hall on Saturday, chairman Cr John Bowen made a statement that arrears in rates amounted to about $400,000. "He did not specifically say whether he was referring to arrears in all funds. He said 'the figure had been substantially reduced in this term'," Mr Wall said in a Press release. Mr Wall, quoting from the Livingstone Shire Annual Account, Statements of Rates and Charges, said the total arrears in all funds at June 30, 1985, the end of his term as chairman, was $370,276.30. "Arrears at June 30, 1986 (Cr Bowen chairman), $497,090.04 and arrears at June 30, 1987 (Cr Bowen still chairman), $411,476.13," he said. "I am quoting audited figures not figures off the top of my head in blind panic," Mr Wall said. "Another incorrect statement by Cr Bowen was his reference to the deficit passsed on by the previous council at the 1985 election. "The only fund then showing a deficit was The Cave's Water $21,058.49. Other main funds showing a surplus were general 5220,584.59, sewerage and cleansing $315,988.66, and Capricorn Coast water $237,871.41."

TOURIST operators will miss out on invaluable opportunities to promote the Capricorn Coast and their own businesses at Expo, unless they act quickly. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said that Expo offers a unique opportunity to promote the Coast, but the availablevenue will be mostly taken up by Rockhampton based enterprises unless Coast operators act quickly. " The Capricorn Coast should be promoted as the primary destination for tourists coming to Central Queensland with it's unsurpassed scenic beauty," he said. "A committee headed by Iris Cameron and endorsed by the Capricorn Tourist Development Organisation was urgently seeking participants in the Central Queensland exposition, which will last six months, but includes a three day features period from June 15 to 23. "Coast businesses should be organising package deals from Brisbane to entice people to the Coast and to promote these package deals at Expo."

Wall on debt I QUESTIONED Cr John Bowen on council's five-year forward programme of works, (during the candidates' debate on Saturday) as submitted to the Co-ordinator General's Department. Cr Bowen was unable to answer my questions. To refresh his memory and to enable you, the ratepayers, to better understand council's financial excursions, I derived from a copy of that forward programme the following figures. Proposed borrowing for water, sewerage, Emu Park sewerage, roadworks, drainage, and plant and equipment: 1987-1988, $3,616,000; 1988-1989, $2,465,400; 1989-1990, $5,074,000;

1990-1991, $1,530,000; 1991-1992, $1,620,000; This gives a total of $14,035,400. Do you remember the fuss Cr Bowen, and a few of his fellow councillors, including Cr Mario Cresta, made about the shire debt of $14.5 million (accrued over a period of about 30 years) prior to the last election. He said on Saturday "the council was heading for a sound financial position" and yet unknown to most of us, he and his council propose to borrow almost as much money in the next five years as the balance of loans remaining after about 30 years of borrowing. As chairman of the previous council I was quite happy to publish my council's financial matters in the newspaper for your information. - Roy Wall, candidate for Division 2.

SCARE tactics or misuse of statistical informationwhen used at election time as a weapon against your opponents should be condemned as they erode confidence and the ratepayers become the victims because their businesses and assets are depreciated. Last Saturday, at the 'Great Chairmanship Debate', an ex-Livingstone Shire councillor endeavoured to highlight his understanding of the present council's "Five Year Forward Borrowing Programme". I list below some points which I trust will assist to add balance and fact to the argument. 1.Every council in Queensland is required by the State Government to submit a guide which assists them to budget for the State finances. 2.The programme is not binding but, if a shire has the potential to double in population in the next five years, as Livingstone has, that council must be forward looking enough to include every possible need including new reservoirs, upgrading sewerage, increasing the size of the newwater treatment plant, weirs at Waterpark Creek, new pumping stations, new mainlines, drainage works and upgraded road works. Of course, this would cost millions but would only happen if there is a huge increase in development and population. If our population increase continues at its present steady growth, all aspects of the above Five Year Programme will not be taken up. 3. In the years to come, regardless of growth, this council will borrow money for infrastructural work but remember our present debt is being reduced every year as loans are being paid out and, in this term of council, redemption has been increased dramically. 4. If we do not include every probable future demand in our "Five Year Forward Borrowing Programme" and an urgent need arises, it cannot just be tacked on in midstream. 5. the previous council, four years ago, had a

"Although I own my house I have no intentions of sub-dividing," he said this week. Mr Cowdray said he had nominated for council because he had so much experience in Local Government, some 14 years with Emerald Shire Council.

DIVISION 2, MIKE PRIOR DIVISION 2 candidate Mike Prior is a semiretired sea captain who now works at Capricorn Iwasaki Resort as an assistant golf-pro


and also dabbles in wood-turning. Mr Prior said he had lived at Cooee Bay for the past 16 years but didn't own any property in Livingstone Shire so had no intention of subdividing. "I was originally associated closely with the tourism industry," he said. "I was skipper for 10 years of Keppel Island Cruises' boats and also spent five years in management with the same company. "I skippered the Fiesta, Oceanus, Keppel Cat 1 and also Keppel Cat 2." His main reason for nominating was because he had sensed people's dissent with the present council. "There's not much I can do to help change the situation now, but if I get elected maybe there is something I can do," he said. "I hope to be able to put forward some ideas to improve water supply and to also look at the different Division 2 problems."

Dear Electors, Firstly may I congratulate the Graham Cummins' and partners on their foresight in building the magnificent Emu Park Endeavour Motel and wish them well. This asset will be the forerunner of greater things ahead for Emu Park in future years ahead. For good Council operation and efficiency it is important that Council has a good Public Relations with its staff and work-force employees. On election this will be my policy. 1 Chairman, Deputy Chairman, Shire Clerk and Engineer to have quarterly meetings with Administration Staff outlining Council Policies and listening to suggestions from Staff on how cost savings and efficiency can be further implemented. It is important for Staff to have an input. First meeting to take place after Poll finalised. All Council to be provided with the Report. 2 Chairman, Deputy Chairman and Engineer to have initial meetings with Staff of Engineering Department along with Overseer and Foremen to discuss the works programme and allowing the Staff to put forward their views of how costs savings and more efficiency can be implemented. Meetings then to take place at suitable intervals suggested by that meeting. All Council to be provided with a report. 3 Foremen to have talks with the workforce gangs implementing the policy and encouraging the employees to have their input for cost saving and efficiency. Many employees can contribute well to this procedure. 4 On election as Chairman I would talk to employees on site on a Public Relations basis, but at no time would I direct a change of work procedure, as this instruction belongs to the Foreman, Overseer and Engineer, as they have Council Policy.

Mrs Mather said she owned 86 acres but ran horses on the block and had no intention of selling the land or sub-dividing. She said her reason for nominating was because people were being kept in the dark about many council issues. "I believe the people have been kept in the dark on many issues, intentionally or otherwise, and in some cases it has cost us dearly," she said. "Cr Bowen's statement "Evil prospers where good men do nothing," sums it up nicely. "I'd like to give the good men a real good shake."

"This matter has been discussed with Main Roads and Transport Departments informing them of the problem and concern," he said. "A choice between the speedy movement of traffic, as against the safety of small children, should not pose a problem with motorists."

"I have further spoken to the department offering an alternative bus route," he said. "The bus driver, instead of pulling up on the bus shelter side, could pull up on Taranganba Road. A trial run could show it would work better and leave council's options open.

"Anything which will improve the children's safety should be attended." Shire engineer Pat Murphy said the crossing signs would be the preferred course which Main Roads would also agree to. "Main Roads would be reluctant to reduce the speed limit and the zebra crossing would not meet the warrants," he said.

BY CATHY LOGAN AN Emu Park couple who celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary this week are among Emu Park's oldest pioneers. Davison Thwaite, 78, and Janet Thwaite (nee Young), 76, were married on February 24, 1933. Fifty-five years later they can fondly recall the highs and lows of married life. Mr Thwaite came from a family of 17 children while Mrs Thwaite was the oldest of three girls who came from an old Mt Morgan family. Mrs Thwaite said their secret had been not to have any secrets. "Let one another know what's happening, don't have secrets and have all the money go into one lot," she said. Mr Thwaite said to get approval from one another is a good recipe. "We let each other know what was happening. If one didn't approve something it wasn't done," he said. The Thwaite's have three daughters, nine grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Distances apart will make it hard for the whole family to celebrate the anniversary. Their eldest daughter, Maureen, (Mrs Jones) lives in Rockhampton; Lorraine (Mrs Biggs) lives at Ipswich, while their youngest daughter, Elma, (Mrs Boshell) lives in Canada. Pride in the family is evident. Mrs Thwaite said she didn't believe in beating, only chastising, but said it seemed to have worked. Mr Thwaite's family has lived at Emu Park since 1910 when they migrated from England. Mr Thwaite said he was only three months old when parents Joseph and Sarah opted for the lucky country. He arrived with 11 brothers and sisters, (one brother was ill and couldn't make the journey and came to Australia later) while another brother had died in England. Mr Thwaite was named after an uncle already at Emu Park, who vouched for the family. Clarence Baxter Davison was Emu Park's station master. Four more Thwaite children were born at Emu Park where, after journeying up the Fitzroy, they eventually settled. Mr Thwaite said his father worked fish traps at what is now called Zilzie. "I can remember the house we rented was the only one at Zilzie," he said. "We never had luxuries in the house and always walked to school (which was on the same site as today's school) which was one and a quarter miles away." For pocket money the Thwaite boys shot snakes, possums, and goannas for their skins. The area they hunted is now Svendsens Road.

Mrs Thwaite said her husband could remember so much about Zilzie and Emu Park he should write a book. He can still remember three of the teachers; Miss Slippers, Miss McNamara and head teacher Pat Goodwin. "There were two boarding houses, one at Philip Street and another in Emu Park, two bakehouses, two butchers, three hotels, two grocery shops and one hardware store opposite the police station," he said. "Bell Park was a popular place for picnickers who travelled from Rockhampton to the area. "I can remember as many as seven trains for one picnic group making the trip to Emu Park." After finishing school Mr Thwaite helped with his father's fish traps and then moved to Mt Morgan to work at the mine. It was this move which resulted in his meeting Mrs Thwaite. The Thwaites stayed in Mt Morgan for 11 years then shifted to Rockhampton where they lived for 32 years. They have spent the past 12 years at Emu Park. Mr Thwaite has two living sisters, Greta Huntley (Sarina) and Ethel Cowap (Emu Park) but many descendants can still be found in Emu Park. The Thwaites enjoy life and vividly recall

REPORTED QUOTES OF THE WEEK The following are extracts taken from the Capricorn Coast Mirror, Morning Bulletin and other named sources relating to Livingstone Shire Council matters during the past three years. The writer considers the extracts to be V the public interest and no comments have bee., added to them. The Freedom of the Press

"In my opinion we should tell the press not to come anywhere near us (the council) for a few months.' (Cr Cresta, Mirror, 5 April, 1986) This is an open message to any Livingstone Shire councillor thinking about banning the media. It is a message from the people who elected you, and it is very short and to the point: Who do you think you are? What are you trying to hide? Your ratepayers elected you because they believed you were the best men and women to do the job. And you have let them down badly. All that you have done since you were elected a little more than a year ago is blunder mindlessly from one crisis to another. Had it not been for influence brought to bear from the highest possible sources in this state, you would have all been sacked. So faryou have made no official announcement, but it is common knowledge that several of you cannot take criticism. Ban us councillors, but be warned -the Morning Bulletin will not be muzzled. Unlike many of you, we care aboutwhat happens to the people you represent. (Editorial, Morning Bulletin, 4 April, 1986) Open Government? (Question in Mirror) Asa member of Livingstone Shire Council, you would be involved in the spending of public money. Do you believe council should be accountable to the public for how it is spent? Bowen: Yes. (Mirror, 30 March, 1985) Ordinarily this report would have been available tothe Mirror but, since Cr Bowen was appointed chairman by six councillors, the information supplied to the press has been drastically cut. Also debate on such reports, and anything else for that matter, has been conducted in committee ... behind closed doors. (John and Suzy Watson, Mirror, 14 June, 1986) War-time Analogies for the Livingstone Battle Zone Aspokesman for Local Government Minister Mr Hinze said yesterday it would not surprise him if Livingstone Shire Council 'declared war on Bulgaria', the council was such a Mad Hatter's tea party. (Morning Bulletin, 27 Novem4er, 1986) Cr Dorey said he did not hold grudges against his colleagues who took 'political' moves to ensure he did not become chairman. But they had become obsessed with their power base and the service to the ratepayers had suffered. 'They're a team of kamikaze councillors now.' (Morning Bulletin, 10 May, 1986) Livingstone Shire Council yesterday pushed its own self destruct button by moving to sack its engineer Mr Tony Rowe for the second time within 10 months. About the same time as seven Capricorn Coast based councillors were moving a carefully orchestrated series of motions designed to get rid of Mr Rowe, Local Government Minister Mr Hinze was forming his own plans to fix once and for all the Livingstone problem. (Editorial, Morning Bulletin, 26 March, 1986) Just Scraped Through Livingstone Shire Council will just scrape through its first year in office before being sacked and replaced by an administrator. Elected on March 30 last year, the formal ratification by cabinet of the appointment of an administrator is expected to occur at next Tuesday's cabinet meeting ... on April 1. (Mirror, 29 March, 1986) Livingstone Shire Council has to be sacked ... and it could happen when cabinet meets or Tuesday. Council hasto be sacked because it is not doing the job it was elected to do, running the shire. If ever conclusive proof was needed that council is a joke, it was provided aplenty on Tuesday morning when 12 elected representatives couldn't even elect a chairman. (Mirror, 26 April, 1986) Authorised: J Chapman, Maida Street, Yeppoon

Basham now confronts his former team mates in last year's runner up, Saints, who are looking strong with plenty of new and old talent.

Ike flack, ob

the (Ovum TOPLESS, the word that makes men's pulses race, took on a new meaning on Sunday when a, shall we say, large, round lady bared all at Great Keppel. A correspondent, who saw this incident, said the woman was almost wearing a one-piece swimsuit. She had slipped off the straps, rolled down the top until it formed a "kini" (we went through that a few weeks ago) and strolled along the beach in front of the resort. To use his words, "rolls of fat hung limply over the front of what was left of the swimsuit ... and huge boobs hung over the fat" (he has a way with words, that fellow). Anyway, aside from the fact that it turned him off his lunch, he saw the funny side when the woman's progress along the beach broughtler close to two young boys who were fishing. As she approached them (on her right side) she became quite modest and flipped up the right side of her costume, pulled the strap over her shoulder, and passed them. Once past, she, quite literally, let it all hang out!!! • • • WHILE on the subject, I must tell ytm. about the very modest lady who had to make a rushed trip to Rockhampton this week with her TAFE-attending son. It was such a rushed trip she didn't have time to dress. Still, when you have a flash car you can take chances in your nightie because nothing can go wrong ... until the car won't start and the garageman takes two hours to arrive. And, all the time, you're sitting there in your nightie. Still, the boy made it to TAFE and that was the important thing. • • • BLOKE saw a cute teenaged blonde who, just for the moment, was wearing a sour face. "I've got some oranges at home but I need lemons for my fish and chips," he said. "I'll bring them in so you can have a look at them for a while." It's the sweet things that people say to each other that makes life interesting!
