THE secret to 60 years of wedded bliss is never grizzling, according to Alf and Gertie Marcombe who celebrated their Diamond Wedding Anniversary on Thursday, March 10. Still both very active (Mr Marcombe is 84 and Mrs Marcombe is 83), they have memories of Yeppoon back to the early 1900s. Mrs Marcombe, nee Tuesley, was only two weeks old when she visited her grandmother, Katherine Cross, at Yeppoon. This was the first of many visits for the next 18 years before the family moved to Sydney. Her grandfather, Edward Cross, had been manager for the Archer brothers before forg, ng ahead and starting his own property at \--6racemere. Mrs Marcombe vividly recalls spending three months at a time holidaying on the Capricorn Coast. The Tuesley family lived in Mt Morgan and she went to the Mt Morgan convent until she was about 17 years old. Mr Tuesley worked in the mines and often travelled to the Coast for a holiday. "My family stayed in a boarding house in John Street," she said. "We often spent three months on the Coast and my parents still made my brothers, sister and me attend the local school, which was on the corner of Hill and Queen Streets. "Mr Moon was the principal during that time. Nothing had been built on the beachfront and sandhills were as far as Keppel View Boarding house (now where Corney's Hardware store is located), where my husband spent his childhood holidays. "McLean's Flats was used as the old camping grounds and bushland surrounded the few Capricorn Coast houses. The area along Adelaide Park Road, going up the hillside, was all bushland and out of bounds." In John Street, three pine trees have stood tall for as long as the Marcombes can remember. "The three pine trees were there long before I can remember and I was there around about 1904 onwards," Mrs Marcombe said. "A Chinaman, Louie Dow, owned a store on the corner of Arthur and Mary Street, and we went to Myola Hall when it first opened. "After going to the pictures, a big searchlight would be turned on to show the path home. It was in the time before electricity and this big generated light went around in a circle lighting the path home. "When electricity did come it was turned off ---about midnight and everyone still needed torches." Mr Marcombe migrated from Cardiff in Wales when he was nine-years-old. The family name had originally been Morcombe but for some reason the "o" was changed to an "a". "Anybody with the name Marcombe is absolutely a relative of mine," he said. The Marcombes also holidayed on the Coast but lived in Mt Morgan where Mr Marcombe, as a child, went to Red Hill Primary School, (now pulled down). Alf said after one holiday his family was lucky enough to catch the last train out of Yeppoon before the 1918 floods stopped all traffic. Mr Marcombe's sister Doris is more well known around the Coast as Dolly Ward. Mr and Mrs Ward originally owned one of the Coast's bakehouses. "I also have a sister, Olga Harvey, living in

Postal ballot concern...and complaints LIVINGSTONE Shire Council's postal ballot appears to be in chaos. Returning officer Jim Brown may well know what is happening ... but there are a lot of people who don't. And a lot of them have contacted the Capricorn Coast Mirror. Typical is Pat Andersen, long-time Coast resident who is so disturbed at what she sees as chaos that she wants the postal ballot declared invalid and a normal ballotbooth poll held on March 19. "It's not too late," she said on Wednesday. "This postal ballot should be called off now. There's still time for the returning officer to advertise that people must go to a voting booth, as they prefer to do, and vote. Mrs Andersen is upset because two of her children have been disenfranchised. "They probably shouldn't be entitled to a vote because one has moved to Cairns and the other to Canberra, but they are still on the electoral roll for this election and their postal ballots have been sent from the council," she said. "But they are lost. They are floating around in

the Never-Never. They did not come to my home; they did not go to my former address (the address listed in the electoral roll); they did not go back to the council, and the post office doesn't know where they are. "I went to the council and was told they had not been returned. I was told my children could fill out statutory declarations, send them to the council, and new ballot papers would be issued ... but with 10 days left there's no time for them to have a vote. "Meanwhile, those two ballot papers are floating around and anyone can fill them in. I have given notice to the deputy shire clerk (Kev Lloyd) that if those two votes surface in the count he will know that they are crooked." Mrs Andersen said she had been following up the two votes for days, without success. She was told on Wednesday afternoon that Yeppoon Post Office had returned -a lot of votes to council that day. These were votes that could not be delivered because the addresses were incorrect.

She again checked with the council and learned that her children's votes were not among those returned. The Capricorn Coast Mirror contacted postmaster Ernie O'Sullivan and learned only that "some votes had been returned to council". Mr O'Sullivan said the post office did not count how many were returned. Also, returning officer Jim Brown said he didn't know how many had been returned to council. Apparently they're not counted there, either. So how many votes are floating around in the. Never-Never? How many are going to surface in the count? How come these votes are not finding their rightful owners? This is a small community ... a few questions to neighbours would locate almost anyone. Mrs Andersen said the votes that had been returned to the council should be advertised so that their rightful owners would know to go to

"Two brothers, Bill and Robert, died in World War I while another two brothers, Robert and Walter, and one sister, Ethel, have also died." Mrs Marcombe said she had a sister, Clair, living on the Gold Coast and one brother, Bill, living in Sydney. Another brother, Viv, died a few years ago. "I don't get to see them as often as I like," she said. "However we all keep in contact by phone and often write letters." Mrs Marcombe's family moved to Sydney in 1922 when she was about 18 years old. Having finished her schooling she trained as a teacher and taught at Mt Morgan Convent before leaving the area with her family. In Sydney, she worked in the offices of Grace Brothers before marrying Alf Marcombe in 1928. Mr Marcombe finished school when he was 14. His first job was as a dentist's assistant earning two-and-sixpence (25 cents) a week. He recalls the dentist giving ether then having three to four minutes to pull teeth.

Mr Marcombe secured a job with a Sydney abattoirs and lived at West Ryde with Mrs Marcombe for 41 years. He retired in 1964 and, after travelling from Daintree in the South to Geraldton in the North, decided to settle back in Yeppoon. There are a number of changes the Marcombes can pick out. Mrs Marcombe said you could once sit on the verandah and watch people travelling into Yeppoon and know who they were. "More people live in the area now and a lot of Mt Morgan houses were transported here when the underground mine closed," she said. The Marcombes were both keen members of St James Indoor Bowling Club and for many years Mr Marcombe was the president. However, while they no longer play bowls, Mr Marcombe is a avid supporter of the Senior Citizens Singing Group that meets in Rockhampton. And how have they been able to stay together so long? "Well," Mr Marcombe said, "there's no secret recipe ... just keep smiling, enjoy life and be happy."

First Emu Park IAN chamber meet on March 22 THE INAUGURAL meeting for the Emu Park Chamber of Commerce and Industry will be held on Tuesday, March 22. Eight interested business people attended a meeting at the Endeavour Motel this week to discuss the feasibility of Emu Park having its own chamber. Spokesman Mark Schultz said a lot of the Emu Park business people couldn't attend Yeppoon meetings because of the distance and time involved away from their businesses. A steering committee was organised and Mr Schultz was elected chairman. He will, with help from commitee members, now formally invite all Emu Park businesses to attend the inaugural meeting. Mr Schultz said the meeting's venue had not been decided. He is hoping to engage a guest speaker.

■ CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 the council chambers and pick them up. These votes, combined with the ones that fell apart when soaked by Cyclone Charlie rain, must affect the overall count. It was claimed when council decided to reintroduce a postal ballot that more people would vote because it would be more convenient. Yet Mrs Andersen had a pensioner couple visit her at the Yellow Door Bookshop and complain that they had to walk further to the post office to post their votes than they would have walked to the usual polling booth. They were against a postal ballot ... and yet they are the very people it was supposed to satisfy. The chaos goes further. One couple, who used to live at Barlows Hill, moved to a new address. The wife notified the electoral office of a new address but the husband did not. A check of the roll shows the wife is now on the roll at both her old address and her new address. But, at the old address, both the husband's and the wife's votes were received. The wife's would actually be the invalid vote. Perhaps, as Ernie O'Sullivan said, this was a case of where the "posties have been on the job for years and know most people" so they automatically redirect the letters to the right address. But if that's the case, why did the man's wife have a postal vote delivered to her old address. And again, why weren't Mrs Andersen's children's votes delivered to her ... after all, the son and daughter are both long-time Coast residents and their other mail is automatically sent to their mother's home. Mrs Andersen is worried her children's votes will be used. She is also worried that even if a statutory declaration is received from her children and they do vote, the two that are "floating" could be used and received first at the council chambers. The result is that the first votes received are the ones counted. Even if her children voted they could still be disenfranchised if the other two "floating votes" are used. Mr Brown confirmed that if illegal votes were received, the first one opened was the one counted ... however, he said this rarely happened. He also said about two-thirds of votes sent out had been returned by electors. Most of division 3 and 4 votes had been returned so only divisions 1 and 2 are outstanding. Mr Brown said he had redirected a "large number" of postal ballots this week. Last week's Mirror story on ballot papers coming unstuck hit home with many readers. Phone calls were received from readers progressively as the paper was delivered along the Coast. There were complaints that ballot papers were stuck together and had to be peeled apart with a knife; the perforations fell off ballot papers; and that papers could not be stuck back together after being peeled apart. Cyclone Charliewas obviously to blame ... but so was the idea of a postal ballot. It seems strange that a fairlywell developed area such as the Capricorn Coast is having a postal ballot. It does not appear to be more convenient. It does not appear to have any advantages. Almost all candidates for the council have complained about the ballot method to the Mirror. One of the constant complaints is that candidates trying to get elected for the first time do

not have a clear-cut campaign time. They just don't know when to stop campaigning ... and if they are wasting their time talking to people who have already voted. The biggest problem is that candidates like to bring their campaign to a peak just before electors vote. With a postal ballot, especially one that has been held up by a cyclone, candidates have had to peak, taper off, then try to peak again. All who have complained said the postal ballot gave a distinct advantage to the sitting councillors. FOOTNOTE: This long story has been given considerable thought. The Mirror decided to publish people's concerns because of the nature of the phone calls we have been receiving. We rarely receive phone calls in a normal election ... there are the ocasional calls from readers with a query about being away on polling day and the like. But this election has caused genuine concern. There have been the regulars who phone up and tell us their problems with papers coming unstuck and so on, but this election has brought many, many calls from people we do not normally hear from. These are people who believe they are entitled to a confidential vote and, quite frankly, feel they are not going to get one when they can't stick down their ballot paper. ..Then there's Margaret Malinconico, peeled her ballot paper apart, filled it in, tried to stick it down, failed; tried again, failed; had a third go ... then gave it away. "I decided I didn't care if someone saw how I voted so I posted it the way it was," she said. There are also people who get involved in elections ... people who have been scrutineers and have been involved with candidates in the past. These people, who could be described as "politically aware," have expressed concern at the number of ballot papers "floating" in the community. They are not satisfied that these votes will not be used illegally. Their fears may well be groundless ... but they deserve publicity. So much concern cannot be left without a voice.

CTDO told of `sleepy village'

Council against 'Rambo' videos RAMBO-TYPE movies with violent death scenes and other disturbing matters have been tagged as the cause of many crimes today. Livingstone Shire councillors were supporting a motion by Noosa Shire Council to canvas public opinion about the possible reintroduction of capital punishment. After voting to support the opinion poll, another motion was adopted to have more stringent censorship of violent and brutal forms of listening, reading and viewing material which they believed to be at the root of crimes today. Cr Brian Dorey proposed the motion that State and Federal Governments urgently act on all forms which contain pornography, violence and brutality of a criminal nature.

THE February Capricorn Coast Tourism and Development Organisation meeting was held at the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort. Branch chairman Hubert Murray said the meeting was well attended and many suggestions for Capricorn Coast promotions were put forward. The Dr Trevor Arnold survey was discussed, including the need for better highway signage about the Capricorn Coast. "One message contained in the report was revealed by the observation, that even though the area possesses unsurpassed beauty, the area is viewed by outsiders as a "sleepy fishing village"," Mr Murray said. "With this in mind, the branch decided this aspect could become a plausible promotional tool for the genuine relaxing holiday this area naturally offers tourists and so unlike the other over-commercialised places along the Queensland Coast. "Renaming the Capricorn Coast the "Town of Capricorn" embracing the suburbs of Yeppoon, Emu Park and Keppel Sands will be investigated further after seeking community response." Mr Murray said the branch realised the impact this would have in attracting Australiawide media coverage ... the newest town in Australia right on the Tropic of Capricorn. "The Byfield Fern, which is not only unique to the area, but beautiful in its own right, could be promoted as the emblem of the suggested new town. "The branch is planning to encourage the local community and council to have more pride in our area by initiating tree planting on footpaths, community co-operation to beautify the beach foreshore and with the resultant general improvement of the area we can encourage the council to beome more involved in the tidy towns competition," he said. The meeting closed with the launching by management committee member Rob Dalgliesh of the Regional sticker programme of Welcome to Capricorn - Where the outback meets the reef.

Cr Mario Cresta said "every night you can switch on the television and see blood and gore. The children look at these programmes while they eat and think it's normal," he said.

School works FOLLOWING representations to Deputy Premier and Public Works Minister Bill Gunn, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton has been advised that approval has been granted for the lining of the internal walls and ceilings to residence number one at Farnborough State School. Mr Hinton said the works department district managerwould arrange for the work to be carried out as early as possible.

Rural roads bear Charlie scars


Steam Cleaning

MANY rural Livingstone Shire Council roads bear the scars of wind and rain which lashed the Coast after the near-miss by cyclone Charlie. Shire engineer Pat Murphy said this week rainfall for the past two weeks had damaged most rural roads in the area. "Pot-holes, scouring and general road damage had been suffered on most roads," he said. "Most heavily damaged was the Stanage Bay Road which had considerable gravel scouring and pot-holing. "Twenty-six inches (650mm) of rain fell at Stanage Bay causing a considerable amount of damage to the road.

IGNORE: • • • •

All the election garbage of the last month All the phoney letters All the self congratulations All the bragging about how they spent your dollars on council works. • That they now claim they're the best thing since sliced bread, and that butter wouldn't melt in their mouths.


"Council workers will now start maintenance work to repair the damaged surfaces but no cost estimate will be available." Mr Murphy said because all the roads had suffered varying degrees of damage, it would be hard to estimate costs at the moment. "Road gangs had been held off from a number of jobs until the rain passed. Before the rain, the roads were in certain stages of wear and tear which haven't changed, except for some pot-holing and scouring, but in some cases culverts may have been washed out." The full extent of damage won't be known until maintenance work has been carried out and work resulting from the wet is deducted from normal maintenance jobs.

• That council must be accountable for a full three (3) years, not just the last year, as they would have you believe. • So much more useful council works could have been completed without the internal conflict and waste of the past three (3) years (as briefly listed in my recent advertisements).

Bicentennial endorsement for Bush fete

A/H: 39 3303, 39 1210

Capri Chickens and Seafood Whitman Street, Yeppoon

EVERY year the Royal Queensland Bush Children's Health Scheme holds a fete ... this year is somewhat different because it will be an endorsed bicentennial function. The fete will be held on Sunday, March 27, starting at 11am. There will be an official opening during the day. Monster auctions, white elephant stalls, homemade candy, cakes and health food will be available besides the old favourites such as steakburgers and devonshire teas. A cent sale and displays, including one from the Capricorn Coast Historical Society, will also be a feature. The scheme hopes to have Angry Anderson to entertain guests. People are also being encouraged to wear period costume because prizes will be given. Some of the special attractions will be the dunking machine. Two Capricorn Coast Mirror staff John Watson and Dave Ruck have volunteered their services for the dunking machine ... but more people are needed. Also the scheme still needs donations from anyone with suitable items for the cent sale, white elephant or auction. A scheme spokesman said the response from business houses had been encouraging, especially because it was a quiet period for many. If you can help with donations or any other way phone the Bush Children's Home for further details.

Show must go on gets added meaning in CQ PEOPLE say the "show must go on" but how



often does a problem present itself when, for once, there's no way for the the show to actually go on. Kavlon Theatre owner Kevin Baglow found out how true this saying was when he resorted to flying his travelling picture show to an expectant audience in Proserpine last week. Mr Baglow took to the air when recent rain flooded all the roads to his destination and next film viewing. Stuck in Middlemount, Mr Baglow heard about a band looking for someone to share the costs of hiring a plane. He managed to make it to the aircraft with just five minutes to spare. The plane was loaded with four band members, 'plus their equipment,which consisted of about 10 speaker units and instruments. Adding to this assortment was Mr Baglow's equipment which is essential to his travelling show. It included a 35mm projector and stereo ... enough to normally fill his Econovan. It took about an hour-and-a-half to reach Proserpine ... a four to five hour drive However, while his arrival time was 7pm, a hall-full of people were waiting for the curtains to open at 7.10pm. Mr Baglow said despite the local newsagency owner ferrying the gear from the airport to the hall the show had to be delayed half-an-hour. Mr Baglow said he was glad to make it to Proserpine because a lot of people would have been disappointed. He only visits the town every couple of weeks and the locals look foward to an evening out.

Bicentennial year will add extra significance to Anzac Services ~aNZAC DAY will have special significance in this bicentennial year because it will be a time to remember how wars helped mould this nation. World War I, WWII, the Korean and Vietnam Wars were all important phases of Australian history. This year, they will be recalled as an integral part of the tribute to Australians who built Australia. Yeppoon's Returned ServiCes League of Australia branch has about 62 members. One originally served in WW1 (three other veterans living in Yeppoon aren't RSL members) and the remaining members are representative of WWII, Korea and, more recently, Vietnam. The RSL will be holding its normal programme on April 25 (Anzac Day) and any group, organisation or school is encouraged to participate in the day's activities. A Dawn Service will be held followed by the March, which starts outside Yeppoon Railway Station, about 9.45am and finishes with the ceremony at the Cenotaph in Beaman Park. One of the Coast's clergy conduct the ceremonywhile schools in the area take it in turn to give the Anzac Address. RSL secretary Mery Scope has asked people or organisations wanting to put tributes on the cenotaph to do so in the form of books rather than flowers. To prevent duplications, the Yeppoon Li.prary could also select the books. Scope said these books would be inscribed and then placed in the library. However the

books could be about any topic and not necessarily on war. "People aren't required to choose from the library selection and also the book's topic can be about a variety of subjects besides war," Mr Scope said. "Last year, 78 books were donated. Some can be used by visually handicapped people."

He spoke about recognising problems in children and detailed a number of personal and impersonal factorswhich contribute to a child's behaviour ... health status, diet and environment, self-esteem, inherited traits, IQ and culture. Out-going president Anne Novak thanked Yeppoon schools and service clubs for their financial assistance and all committee members for their efforts and co-operation in maintaining the programme. All schools in the area now participate in the Safety House programme. The monitoring of safety houses continues as does the children's education about the use of the programme. Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sgt Ken Tanzer has had talks with school children as part of the education programme and these were supplemented by a video and the I'ma Safety House ambassador visit. Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen chaired the election of office bearers. Anne Novek accepted re-election as president, vice president is Debbie Dearden, secretary Ellen Cue, treasurer Alison Kearney. Eight people were elected to the committee: Elizabeth Harvey, Cheryl Pelling, Carol Knight, Nita Bowman, Darryl Dearden, Kerry Kelso, Terry Thorpe and Lilian Bowen.

The plants now have a greater chance of survival and will eventually beautify the wall with a blaze of colourful flowers and lush greenery.

LSC paying one-third of lighting MAIN Roads workers have nearly finished installing lights along the new four-lane highway median strip. The lights were placed 40m starting from the Normanby Street and Anzac Parade intersection to the end of the new works which finish at Todd Avenue. In a joint agreement with Livingstone Shire

Council, Main Roads will be paying two-thirds of the total costs, and running costs later incurred, while the council will be left to pay onethird. Main Roads is responsible for route lighting and hopes to improve the safety standards for both motorists and people using the road.

State subsidy for library service MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week the State Government would pay a subsidy to Livingstone Shire Council for its library service. He said the 53101.49 subsidy would be part of the total entitlement for qualified staff during the 1987/1988 financial year.

"I was advised of the subsidy payment by Premier Mike Ahern, who is also Arts Minister responsible for the Queensland Library Board," he said. Mr Hinton said the Queensland Government was allocating more than 57 million this year to local authorities, through the Library Board.




Dear Electors, I would like to take this opportunity of wishing you all a happy future here in Livingstone Shire. I thank all you people who have supported me during the election campaign, and most importantly, the councillors, staff and employees of Livingstone who have worked so hard during the last two years in order to make this a place in which we can all be proud. There is a great deal more still to be done, and my only hope is that we all in Livingstone work together regardless of whom is elected for the next three years. We all have to make allowances, we all have to deal with problems - what matters is the method we choose. This is so important being a community that is vital, comprising of people from many walks of life and possessing many talents and skills. Asyour present chairman I hope you will re-elect me for the next three years so that I will have the opportunity of further serving this community in order to improve the quality of life for all in Livingstone. Yours faithfully, John Bowen VOTE

Daley: LSC owns too much land LIVINGSTONE Shire Division one candidate and former Livingstone Shire councillor Lawrie Daley is concerned that council owns too many lots in Division One. "Almost 300 council owned lots means that rates and charges are not collected," he said. "If these lots were privately owned, the revenue received could be used to upgrade town

streets and water supply, instead of the present situation where ratepayers are seriously disadvantaged. "This is the main reason why so many town streets are unsealed in division one. Careful planning is needed to ensure that privately owned land is not devalued by an influx and also that enough land is retained for essential services."

There are some people who can't stand the thought of losing, even when they know the tide of public opinion is against them. For these people, any trick will do — so long as it is dirty! An instance is a pamphlet which was circulated this week stating that former shire chairman Roy Wall and former councillor Maurie Webb, plus Cr Barbara Wildin, voted to keep council information from the public. As is always the case with people who use gutter tactics, the essential information has been removed so that, when taken out of context, it purportsto present a case that deliberately misleads the honest citizen. This pamphlet, written and authorised by "D. Keith B. Griffiths of Lammermoor Beach", says Wall, Webb and Wildin "attempted to prevent public accountability which would destroy the whole foundation upon which Democratic Local Government is based i.e. Government by the people for the people". This "D. Keith B. Griffiths" bases this claim on the minutes of the meeting of 16/11/83... "That the Local Government Acts be amended so that the minutes, notes or recordings made on matters heard in committee at Local Government meetings be not available to the public for perusal or copying." 'This D. Keith B. Griffiths then says: "That motion was carried with Crs Mario Cresta, John Bowen and Lawrie Daley against". What did this D. Keith B. Griffiths leave out? D. Keith B. Griffiths left out the fact that this motion was a "Motion for the Central Queensland Local Government Conference and the Minister for Local Government". It was not a motion affecting Livingstone Shire Council. It was a motion to be put to a conference of ALL CENTRAL QUEENSLAND COUNCILS. And How Did that Motion Come About? Because then Crs Arthur Rackemann and Andrew Olive moved it as a "suggested" motion to the Local Government Conference by Livingstone Shire Council. This motion was a way to have the whole matter of secrecy debated openly, with input by all Central Queensland councils. There was a bit more information that D. Keith B. Griffiths left out from the same minute: The chairman (Men Cr Roy Wall) wished it to be recorded in the minutes that Cr Bowen did breach the confidentiality of this meeting by reading in open meeting the contents of a letter-that he knew was 'In Committee' from Council's Solicitor". And, in a "tit-for-tat" move, the minutes then record that "Cr Bowen asked that it be recorded that the Shire Engineer did also at the same meeting". In a report of this particular meeting, the Capricorn Coast Mirror of November 26-December 2, 1983, carried two articles on page 3. The first was headed "Councillors Cop Blast from Shire Chairman" and the first paragraph states: "Cr John Bowen was told he had breached council confidentiality and Cr Neville Welfare told his colleagues they were acting 'like high school kids again' at this month's Livingstone Shire Council meeting. The second paragraph stated: "The comments flowed from general discussion on the leaking of confidential council committee information" The second article was headed: "Councils Urged to Support Secrecy Move" and the first paragraph states: "Central Queensland local authorities will be urged to support a move designed to protect the secrecy of council committee meetings". D. Keith B. Griffiths, in the pamphlet, said the minutes were available from council, then used selections, out of context, to make a point. Where is D. Keith B. Griffiths' pamphlet on Cr Bowen, the person who was thrashed at the polls when he stood for the chair; the champion of Open Government who, when he finally was "appointed" (not elected) to the chair, practically closed the council meetings to the Press and Public and stripped the previously 5cm thick agendas of so much information that the Press and Public was left with absolutely no way of knowing what was happening even at Open Council Meetings? Where's that pamphlet D. Keith B. Griffiths?

ANY action taken by Livingstone Shire Council re the curbing of pornographic and violent material, is to be commended. The Noosa Shire Council has contacted all local authorities after the brutal murder of schoolgirl Sian Kingi. I hope all local authorities will put their weight behind the abolition of this rubbish which has become just as acceptable as the daily newspaper. The head of the Child Exploitation unit in the Victorian Police says that pornography was used in every case of child molestation and rape that has been investigated. A study by American psychologist William Marshall at Kingston Penitentiary and Queens University, found almost half of the rapists he interviewed admitted using so-called "soft core" consenting-sex pornography to arouse themselves in preparation for seeking a victim. He said, "Nineteen per cent of rapists used forced-sex, sadistic-bondage pornography to incite them to rape while 38 per cent used consenting-sex pornography immediately prior to committing an offence. He also found 55 per cent of homosexual child molesters he studies used child pornography to instigate their crimes. Studies in both South Australia and Hawaii have shown the incidence of rape increased when pornography became more easily available. We tend to think - these things happen in other places - not here. Look again. Go into any newsagent in Yeppoon and you'll find a variety of sex magazines. If they are

Letters to the editor there, people are buying them. If people are buying them, they are being sexually aroused. So there are potential rapists in every community. An English judge once said that porno-videos turn a common thief into a depraved rapist. Cr Keith Hinchliffe said Australia was heading for a downfall. He's right. The reason is simply that we, as a nation, have turned our backs on God. We have become a Godless nation. As the bible says, "Men are lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God". The whole answer is to get to the beast of man and change it from Godless to Godlike. Each of us is responsible for the actions in our community. What can you do about it? We can make sure our hearts are right with God through Jesus Christ. And we can help rid our community of degrading literature and videos. - Gordon Larsen, Kinka Beach.

Has shire been well managed? THE self proclaimed "little Aussie battler" from Keppel Sands is at it again, doing what she does best - maligning innocent, law-abiding individuals. In her well-planned election strategy, Cr Giorgi seeks to have electors perceive her as an embattled underdog who has fought for the rights of the little people and has been hounded at every turn by that terrible Lloyd Webber and others. Nothing could be further from the truth. The reality of the situation is that Lloyd Webber has far better things to do with his time and, in fact, doesn't even regard Cr Giorgi as being in the running this time because she herself, without any outside help, has alienated nearly every section of the community. Rather than blame Lloyd Webber for her dismissal re-election prospects, Ann should direct her attention to her acid tongue and divisive tactics. For the record, I have done everything possible to keep personalities out of this election campaign, and have stuck rigidly to the issues even though it would have made good political sense to do otherwise. Particularly in areas where Cr Giorgi is believed by many to be vulnerable. Readers should not be fooled by the tear-jerk tactics which are used as a smokescreen by certain councillors to cover pp inadequacies. The real questions which need to be answered are, has the shire been managed effectively over the past three years and, do land developers on council represent the best interests of the shire's ratepayers? -- Lloyd Webber, Cawarral.

IN this bicentennial year it is encouraging to see the ideals of our forefathers, democracy etc, being upheld by our present council members.

More lights for beachfront plea

Normanby St Yeppoon


Yeppoon and Emu Park have been transformed into sparkling, bright and attractive communal centres - particularly in the case of the Yeppoon library where the new chairs in the reading room blend in harmoniously with the blue carpet and surrounds. Mention must also be made of the range and variety of books available and the assistance so readily given by the staff, particularly in the field of research. I feel credit should be given when it is long overdue and it is pleasing to see that Miss Foeman had the support of the present council in her endeavours. - Patricial J Carver, 307 Denham Street Extended, Rockhampton.

WHAT are we doing encouraging the tourists to be like insects and follow the lights past Yeppoon to Iwasaki. Surely we won't need that many lights on the four-lane highway (enough to melt the bitumen). As a ratepayer I don't feel we should have to pay. The council would so much better to encourage the tourists to enjoy our facilities on the main beachfront ... all this new work has

I LOVE AUSTRALIA A store in the market yesterday Had colourful T shirts on display On the front of each, in letters bold The message, "I Love Australia" was told And I knew those words applied to me Although I was born across the sea I bless the day I came to this land For the friends and happiness I've found Though it's only twelve years since I came I am an Australian by name With a smart certificate to prove Citizenship of this land I love.

In a way it all belongs to me It's mine, this beauty that I see The Kookaburra's rollicking call Majestic gum trees standing tall; The Kangaroos and the Wallabies, The unspoiled bush and encircling seas. This land, where the people all are free This splendid land has welcomed me. I cannot give my youth or strength Because my days are now far spent, But in the time that's left to me I'll give unstinting loyalty. - Monica Cumming.

LAST Tuesday's monthly social of Yeppoon Pensioners' League had an Irish flavour ... shamrocks and a profusion of flowers adorned the stage and most of the soloists sang Irish songs and the instrumentalists played Irish melodies. Congratulations were offered by compere Marje Cornell to Alf and Gert Marcombe who celebrated 60 years of marriage. Ninety-two year-old Sarah Hall, who would be the longest-serving artist performing at the Yeppoon league socials, opened the afternoon with Rose of Tralee and Forever and Ever and many of her listeners would have envied her ability to entertain. One of those who enjoyed Sarah's songs was 93-year-old Jim Spottiswood. Linda Leach, who sings delightfully to her own piano accompaniment, kept up the Irish flavour with Killarney and How Can you Buy Killarney? A newcomer to pensioner socials in Yeppoon was Trevor White, who made •two appearances and he will be assured of a warm welcome if he comes to future socials. His rendition of Caro Mio was particularly pleasing. He was accompanied on the piano by Leila Goodwin. Diamond wedding celebrant Alf Marcombe contributed Keep it a secret from me, and After Dark. He also added the appropriate Happy Anniversary Day. Together for the first time, the trio of Pam Brisbin, Ruby Harris and Marge Cornell, received well-deserved applause for their medley of Irish Melodies. Garry Warren sang Wooden Heart and China Doll, Ruby Harris contributed My Darling Patricia and Ivy Mallory's effort was Oh You Beautiful Doll. One of the afternoon's highlights was the instrumental duet of Tony Ceff (violin) and Norm Brisbin (piano). • The singing group, The Entertainers, with pianist Linda Leach, entered into the Emerald Isle atmosphere with their Irish Medley, as did Joe McIntyre with his Irish jokes and his story of a mistaken edifice. The afternoon was brought to a close by Bill Shuttlewood who sang River Shamon and Mother Machree and Marge Cornell with her pleasing I'll take you home again Kathleen and If you ever go to Ireland. The afternoon was interspersed with dances and a game of passing the baton which was won by Tony Ceff. The winners of the monte carlo were Jim Limpus and Maureen Dinsdale and lucky door numbers were held by Theresa Warren, Sarah Hall, Ursual Sulcas, Wilma Stodart, Mary Ramsden, Enid Warren, Joe McIntyre, Yeppoon and Kinka Beach resident Ada Evans. Raffle prizes of fruit and vegetable trays given by Dick and Betty Tyrer went to diamond wedding celebrant Gert Marcombe and Dan Keleher and a third tray went to George Madsen ... all of Yeppoon. *** DATE CLAIMER: March 27.

VICTIMS of Apartheid Material Aid Programme was set up to collect, store and ship material aid to victims of apartheid. Capricorn Coast Justice and Peace asks Coast residents to empty out their cupboan of soap, toothpaste, face washers, women's dresses, men's shirts and ... reading spectacles. There are lots of other things that are needed, but the group has targeted the above items from the long list. Face washers aren't hard to make, soap isn't that costly and everyone has old clothes they can't fit into anymore (and it doesn't matter whether hot, cold or what material) and, hidden down in the back of the drawer you have been going to clean out one day but haven't got around to are ... maybe, some used reading glasses. The glasses are important because of the cost, but they aren't of any use to you anymore if you have new ones and could benefit someone who needs them.

Capricorn Coast Mirror March 13 - March 18, 1988 - 13 EMU Park State School will celebrate its centenary in 1990. A meeting has been called for Monday, March 21 in the school library at 7pm to form a centenary committee. All members of the community are invited to attend the meeting and to join the new committee. Phone 39 6204 or 39 6618 after hours for more particulars or if you would like to help. *** A BUS will take Yeppoon Pensioners League members to Rockhampton on Thursday, March 17, leaving Yeppoon Railway Station at 9am. There is a concert at Bauhinia House hosted by North Rockhampton Pensioners League at 1pm and Yeppoon members may attend the social if they wish. The bus will leave for home from Bauhina House at 4pm. There are a few seats left and inquiries can be directed to bus captain Pat King, 39 2109 after 7am. ***

THE next meeting of St Ursula's College Parents and Friends Association is on Monday, March 14 and not March 21 as previously planned. The meeting is in the school library. *** YEPPOON and District Lapidary Club will have• its first field trip for 1988 on Sunday, March 13 (tomorrow) ... weather permitting. Departure is from Yeppoon Railway Station at 8am sharp. Don't forget your extra bucket and tucker box. It should be a great fossick after all the rain. Visitors are always welcome to join in. *** SOMEONE always misses out. And this time it was Livingstone Shire Division Two candidate Harold Vaughan ... we accidently left out his advertisement last week. The problem this time with the election was the continual changing of pages around. We tried not to put all chairman candidates together, opposing candidates together and then we tried to make sure stories and letters to the editor didn't run next to opposites ... we didn't always succeed, but that was more tiredness than anything else. Back to Harold ... we were moving ads around so much his fell off the page and we didn't realise until he rang up on Friday. Anyway, we have apologised in the public notices and put his ad on page three this week to make up for the error.


C THE Quiz, Games and Trivia night next week will have a special question (because it is election night ... Saturday, March 19) and it can't be revealed because it would ruin the quiz, game or trivia. The fun has been organised by Yeppoon State Primary School Parents and Citizens Association in Yeppoon Town Hall at 7.15pm. The association has been working hard to gather lots of different Quizzes, games and trivia questions to keep everyone happy. You can organise your own table of eight or just make space at one of the many tables available. Child-minding is available at the town hall, videos for the younger children and older children are welcome to play. Pacino's Pasta and Pizza has donated a dinner for the winning table. Entry forms and tickets are available at the school and Findlay's electrical. Included in the price ($5 adults, $2.50 chidren) is supper. John Arnold, 393314, is the person to contact if you have any queries or would like to help. *** THE Rockhampton Multiple Birth Association is having a barbecue at the Capricorn Waterslide, Yeppoon Road on Sunday, March 13 (tomorrow) at 11.30am to celebrate Multiple Birth Week. Meat will be supplied for member by the association. If you interested in joining the multiple birth association, contact Michelle Clark, 28 7109. *** YEPPOON Keep Fit Club now offers three classes a week ... Monday 7pm, Tuesday 9.30am and Thursday 10am. The classes are in the National Fitness Hall, Queen Street (next to the Yeppoon Kindergarten) and you can find out more by contacting Ilona, 35 1185 or Sally, 39 4011. *** CAPRICORN Coast Toastmasters Club is having a speechcraft course later in the year. It will provide you with an excellent opportunity to develop and refine leadership and communication skills. Inquiries to Noelene Drost, 39 2241.

CAPRICORN COAST BASKETBALL INC. HOLDS ANNUAL MEET pensible." Derek Worden: For his refereeing and stewardship with juniors from 4pm on Sundays.

THE Capricorn Coast Basketball Inc held its first annual general meeting and following is its annual report. The executive was elected on June 21, 1987 and automatically became the management committee upon incorporation on January 21, 1988. In the eight months since the last meeting basketball has have successfully completed its first full competition in many years. Ten junior teams competed at two levels with Emu Park's Demons topping the younger group's competition and unbeaten in the intermediates was Celtics. Team nominations for the junior competition have showed a 20 per cent increase this season. There were 14 senior men and women teams. Champion teams were Coasters and Billabongs. Nominations have also increased to 18 teams this season. "This means our available time slots are completely filled with only some time available prior to 4pm Sundays," publicity officer Don Willoughby said.

"Our first representative teams for many years, attended a B grade carnival in Rockhampton. Despite many years outside mainsteam basketball the teams gave a good account of themselves." Also starting during this period was Capricorn Coast's Basketball Referees Association. The viability of this group is essential to the future of basketball on the Coast and the management committee would like all players and spectators to encourage and support this group. "We have tried it before and proved the fact ... no referees, no basketball," he said. "Capricorn Coast Basketball Inc also started negotiating with Yeppoon State High School Parents and Citizens for the use of its stadium, if it is built. "Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton approached the club to undertake a proposal, should a suitable facility be built by the Parents and Citizens, for a commercial leasing arrangement to use it outside school hours.

"This arrangement would provide a considerable increase in hours for both competition and training, presently unavailable from the Queensland Recreation Council. "Our rental would also assist the Parents and Citizens in meeting loan repayments. "Overall the school would benefit from a multi purpose hall, the community would also have access to a quality facility with stage, kitchen, toilets and showers, and finally basketball would be the sport with perhaps the best school facility in the region. "It was hoped to start building last year, however delays have occurred. We have been advised by senior people involved they anticipate completion this year." The management committee acknowledged the help and support of all the people who, through their efforts, have furthered basketball on the Coast but said the list would be too large to name separately. "There are however, a few whose continuing efforts each week, amounting to dozens of hours in various areas, who have been indis-

St James bowls

YIBC rain delay

ST JAMES Indoor Bowls Club hosted QRI to a social bowls night last Tuesday. St James def QRI 110-72 points. Unfortunately because of the inclement weather the Vamvakaris Shield was postponed from last Wednesday to a later date, yet to be fixed. Keith Chant must have been well satisfied last Saturday night when 88 players competed for his trophies. It was a good night of excellent bowling. Winners were W and B Harris, G Kane and H Anderson with 48 points and runners up were J and E Lees and P and E Shoecroft with 47 points. The sportsman's prize went to Arthur Burt's team. A lovely supper finished the night's bowling. On Sunday, March 6, the pairs final games were for the Bicentennial Games. Seventeen mats with 34 teams, with a total of 68 players, contested six games. The final three players each had 55 points. Gold medal winnerswere seniorvice-president Red and Joyce Ferguson with the highest aggregate of 89 points. Silver medals went to Peter and Esme Shoecroft for their aggregate 83 points and Mery Hixon and Noreen Domoney won the bronze with 80 points. Mery and Noreen also won the last week in the triples. Jelma Hixon was the third player in the team.

CYCLONE Charlie caused the postponement of the first round of the Vamvakaris Shield scheduled to be played at the Association Centre in Rockhampton on Wednesday night of last week. Heavy rain which fellow teams from the Capricorn Coast would have difficulty attending and the nine teams entered for the competition will hit off on Wednesday night, April 6. Next Friday night two Rockhampton clubs, St John's and Dean Street, will visit Yeppoon Indoor Bowling Club and play three games each of 12 ends against teams from the Yeppoon club. Local players are asked to bring a plate. Keep in mind vice-presidents' night on Friday, March 25 and games director's morning on Wednesday, March 30 when players will compete for Easter trophies given by YIBC games director Vi Robson. Names of teams to play in the first Ye Olde Davis Cup for 1988 at Biloela against Callide on Sunday March 27, are on the board. Please notify games director or selectors if you are not available. Members of YIBC wish fellow clubmate Jack Rumpf, who underwent surgery at Rockhampton's Base hospital last week a speedy return to health.


Singing Ship A I 1 ENDANCE at the Singing Ship Indoor Bowls Club continues to be good, and new bowlers are always welcome.

The winners were Charlie Stratford and Marie Morris. Members are reminded that Frenchville club will visit on Tuesday, March 15, and Singing Ship will play lawn bowls with Emu Park Bowls Club on Saturday, March 26.

Scott also ousted his brother Peter in three closely contested games. Both doubles matches went to three games with both teams victorious in one.

EMU PARK Golf Course proved it is one of the few all-weather grounds in Central Queensland when it stayed open last weekend when most other courses closed. Players flocked to the course in droves from Rockhampton, Yeppoon and other not toodistant places to enjoy golf like many had not experienced before. Instead of trying to drive long distances with wide open fairways as accustomed, players responded to the challenge of placing their shots along narrow tree-lined fairways. The water hazards were filled with clear water from recent rain, yet `casual water extended only for about one metre from the dams beside the second and fifth fairways. Anyone finding their ball in these locations would have strayed well off the fairway and were lucky to have a free drop. The lush grass on the fairways made for pleasant playing on the weekend. Many players didn't even avail themselves of the "preferred lie" as permitted under the local rules. The greens played a little slower than usual causing many balls to pull up short of the hole than should have been expected after the drenching from the previous week. "In all, the course was a picture and a real pleasure to play upon. For this we must pay tribute to the unpaid voluntary work of Dave Logan, Bernie Manion and Ray Gilson," the publicity officer said. "These three spend many hours of their leisure time mowing, coring, thatching and top dressing the fairways, and greens." Early this year a small working bee worked a number of Saturdays to install the new watering system for the greens. With this system and full dams, plus the newly purchased equipment, there is little doubt that the rate of improvement in the course will dramatically increase. "Incidentally, it was surprising how many experienced golfers from the more popular golf clubs made enquiries about joining Emu Park Golf Club. "They have seen first hand the all-weather conditions and relish the challenge provided by the narrow fairways and slope of the land," he said. The rain did not bring all good during this week because on the debit side, play was cancelled on Tuesday and Wednesday. "It is surprising how many golfers will start a round knowing that they have little chance of completing it without getting drenched, and continuing oblivious to what falls upon them. "Yet if it is raining before they start, they couldn't be dragged onto the course by a team of bullocks." The juniors finally started on the weekend and a fair roll-up attended. There is still room for more and any junior wishing to start should turn up next Saturday. They played a single stroke which was won by Peter Malick with 86 off the stick for a net 68. This is a creditable performance for a young player new to the game. Maybe he listens and then puts into practice what he is told and shown. It is rumoured Santa Claus had trouble trying to climb down the Malick chimney with a new set of golf clubs on Christmas eve and it is also rumoured Peter needs a surgeon to remove the clubs from his hands. Results, Saturday, March 5: Juniors played a single stoke. Winner, Peter Malick net 68.

On 19 points they lead from Any Hows on 15 points with Strugglers and Saints and Sinners equal third on 12 points. Blistering Four are on 10 points and Navigators on seven. Navigators weighed anchor for a 3-2 result against Saints and Sinners earlier in the round but since then have dragged the anchor. This week saw some interesting results, notably Leon Malone with a close result in five over Mark Sargood and Andrew Dowie who secured his first win against Len Kelly in two seasons. Closest team result went to Strugglers who have yet to field a full strength team due to work commitments. Strugglers edged out Any Hows two rubbers each, eight games each, 116 - 110, due largely to a fine effort by Ray Campbell takingt two ganes from Chris Hacker and leading him 36 points to 28.

COUNCIL hopeful overheard chatting with another candidate this week ... "loved the photograph in your advertisement. Who did you get to pose for it?" • • • TEENAGE son approaches forbidding father ... "Dad, I want a serious talk with you." Father immediately thinks the worst and starts wondering what teenage son has done. He puts aside newspaper, assumes blank expression, and turns toward son, all ears. Son shuffles feet; son stammers; son starts moving forks and knives on table and tinkling spoon on edge of glass. Father (patiently) waits for the worst ... he tries desperately to recall whether hiswife gave son a talk on the birds and the bees. Teenage .boy, finally, looks up from crestfallen face and says: "Dad, I want to re-spray my car." Relief floods over father's face: "Is that all, son?" says now effervescent father, "yes, go ahead, by all means" Just as father goes to pick up newspaper, son starts straight in ... "I want to do it all white". "Yes," says father, a good colour, go ahead, all white, yes, no worries." Son, before father can find place in newspaper, "I want to paint the bumper bars all white, put mags on it, put a big black wing on the back and a black sun shield over the rear window, put in new seats, a four-on-the-floor and, oh yes, the mags are 16 inch on the back and the tyres are 8 inches wide". Father, reeling back from the sudden onslaught, says: "No". Son: "Why not?" Father: "You'll get booked." Son: "No I won't!" Father: "I don't want to hear any more on the subject." Two hours later, father and son are still at it. Father won't yield ... son just doesn't understand why he will get booked! Who's right? Mother wouldn't even referee .. she went to bed. Father and son still not speaking. Why must the generation gap exist? Surely there's a way children can pass from the age of 11 to 21 without slowly driving parents crazy! • • • FOUL, vicious censorship hit the Mirro this week. In a move that struck at the heart of the newspaper's independence, a photo graph was snatched from "Old Baldy's" hands by Suzy while Cathy (Lois Lane Logan grabbed the picture and ran, scream ing, down the stairs. It was a scene straight out of Front Page (or was it a movie starring the Three Stooges?). The whole row erupted after "OB" and Cathy had photographed a chap planting vines in the four-lane road retaining wall on the beachfront. Walking back to the car, "OB" noticed some sloppy mud hiding under a seemingly hard crust. Cathy, with hair over her eyes, didn't. Putting her best foot forward, she stepped into more than ankle-deep mud ... there was a slurping sound as her nice new purple high heel shoe disappeared, pushed relentlessly downward by her trim little ankle ... also disappearing. "OB," seeing the stuff award-winning photos are made of, swung around and fired off a flash bulb. The picture's a classic ... Cathy, head down, a great big hole in the mud with a shoe in it, the formerly hard crust cracked as if it had been hit by a meteorite ... the only thing missing was the sound track of Main Roads men, and "OB," ... laughing. Cathy, wearing that instant sunburn that only seems to occur in the workplace, retrieved her shoe and hobbled back to the car. Where's the print? Well, Suzy, who has been known to do similar things, decided it shouldn't be printed. Actually, "OB," Dave Ruck, Rhodes and Rhett, feel it should be printed. Cathy and Suzy are adamant it won't be ... and Sandra? Well, Sandra just keeps giggling v. and she hasn't even seen the print!!!
