• ABOVE: Denhams Supermarket had a bumper Easter with 6000 people passing through the checkouts. This picture was taken on Easter Saturday.


SOME Capricorn Coast businesses had a bumper Easter with trade doubling for some ... however there are businesses blaming rain for poor takings. Among the many happy business people pleased with Easter trade is Yeppoon Butcher's Pat O'Brien who said his figures were double his opening day record. Also, Denhams' checkouts were kept busy with 6000 customers. New, improved, facilities and services at Savemore Centre, lower prices and large numbers of tourists were some reasons given for boosted Easter trade. Rain and wind were also blamed for some businesses not realising expected Easter figures. DENHAMS' Supermarket manager Ron Iafrati said Easter trade on Thursday and Saturday had been "excellent". He said trading was up 15 to 16 per cent, with 6000 customers passing through the checkouts.

"This is 400 more than for the same period last year," he said. Mr Iafrati said it was hard to tell how good trading would be at the beginning of last week but by the weekend it had been very good. "Easter Thursday morning was a good period but Easter Saturday was probably the best. day's trade during the break," he said. "The centre's promotions probably had a lot to do with the crowds on Saturday. "The whole centre is an attractive shopping spot. This time last year we still had the old centre but Savemore's extensions and better facilities make it a pleasant place for shopping." YEPPOON BUTCHERS' Pat O'Brien said Maundy Thursday figures had nearly doubled last year's opening day figures. "It's our first Easter but it was better than Christmas," he said. "It shows poeple are a lot more confident of Coast businesses because of the Savemore

Centre's extensions and improved services. "There were a lot of strange faces buying a fair bit of meat, which showed people were holidaying on the Coast." Mr O'Brien said trading had improved steadily from Christmas and seemed to peak during Easter. However he expected trading would steadily continue with southern tourists now starting Coast holidays. ANGLISS Butchery's James Street relieving manager Robin Titmus said bulk buying from many Coast businesses had nearly doubled. Mr Titmus said the James Street shop catered to a lot of businesses bulk ,buying, including Capricorn Iwasaki, Great Kepper Island and many take-away shops. Orders from these places were nearly doubled during the Easter break. He said apart from bulk-buying, there was also a steady stream of people during the break. ANGLISS' Savemore manager Gavin Chillingworth said Easter trading had been very

busy on Thursday but seemed to wane on Saturday afternoon. "Saturday morning was hectic but, from about 2pm, it was like a normal afternoon," he said. Mr Chillingworth said he was a little disappointed with Saturday but, because it was Angliss Savemore's first Easter in the centre, there was no way of comparing figures. Trading did meet expectations on Thursday and staff were kept busy with holidayers buying meat for the break. SEAFOOD AND EAT TT's Ross Dickson said this year's Easter takings had been "fantastic" and were better than last year's trading. Mr Dickson said Good Friday, compared to last year, was 24 per cent better in takings. Easter Saturday showed a 7 per cent increase. Trading on Easter Sunday increased by 18 per cent and Easter Monday was up 23 per cent. The increased trade had been "thoroughly • CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

Problems and delays with LAC, and council reins in horse idea CAPRICORN Coast resident Brett Watson plans to operate a horseriding business on Great Keppel Island ... if he can get Livingstone Shire Council approval for the concept. Deferrals for wrong land sizes and other problems have occurred since he first approached the Land Administration Commission for land in May 1986. Mr Watson said his original application for four hectares of Crown land on Great Keppel Island was "put in limbo while it see-sawed from council to LAC". He was told the LAC couldn't give him land until council approved in principle his application to run horses. "I wanted to give day trippers, campers, the youth hostel and general public a land activity because mostly only water activities are available," he said. "Also, it's an alternative way to see the island. The island is fairly big and it would take awhile to walk around, but riding a horse would be an enjoyable and more relaxing way." Mr Watson said he needed to get council approval for the business concept before he could get the land. The council said it needed approval for land, before it could approve any business. "The LAC finally approved a permit to occupy, for two years, for less than an acre of land. This came about 17 months after the original application in 1986 and only after numerous trips both to Brisbane and Rockhampton," Mr Watson said. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton also made representations on his behalf. The land the LAC said he could use was at the back corner of the Wapparaburra Haven camping area. Mr Watson said after he was told about the land approval, he lodged his town-planning application. Having lodged the application, he learned council required a minimum of five acres before it could approve the business. There were also a number of objections to council about the proposed plan. Mr Watson said objectors said: • "Domestic water supply could be polluted if stables were built above the water table; • "They said cutting trees could aggravate sand drifting in strong northerlies causing destruction of melaleucas and other native flora; • "Morning and afternoon teas were served in land adjacent to the proposed site; • "It was too close to existing dwellings and could cause odours and flies; • "Already, a similar activity was operated with stables 5km away from the resort and island residents; • "The proposed site was in the flight path of aircraft and a loose horse could cause an accident; • "Dangers to inexperienced riders if a horse was scared by planes;

• "Horseswould be a hazard to pedestrians on walking tracks and island beaches; • "Erosion problems could arise if the horses didn't stick to clearly marked trails; • "Residential area land valuations would drop; and land acting as a buffer zone between residents and staff quarters would be lost." Mr Watson said a number of these problems would be fixed if the LAC agreed to increasing its land approval to the required minimum of five acres. He said with five acres, he would only use about one acre, which would be surrounded by the remaining four acres, Crown land and bush. "Therewould be a natural buffer zone around the stables," he said. "There will be a mimimum of 10 horses and 15 maximum, with individual stalls in one large shed and will be totally handfed. This stable would also have tackroom, feed, office and workshop areas. Outside, there would be a roundyard and exercise area. "Four people would be employed to help with feeding, grooming, book-keeping, strapping, and manure collections along the trails. "It would be something desirable for people do and would be fully supervised by a trail guide." Mr Watson also said the horseriding venture now operating on the island, by the resort, was started after he lodged his application in 1986. Mr Watson said all he needed was council to approve the horseriding concept. The LAC would then be in a position to increase the land size. He said he would be seeing all the councillors in the next few weeks to present his case. He hopes the application will be discussed during the May meeting. "It hasn't been a smooth track along the way and I have put a lot time into this project to make sure it is right for the island and has minimal environmental impact," he said. "I have had to gather information and wait for approval, advertise, and also go to Brisbane to see Lands Department Minister Bill Glasson and chairman Wally Baker. "All it needs is for council to say 'yes, we do want this business' and approve the application."

Mine group to show revegetation THREE Capricorn Coast Wildlife Preservation Society members have been invited by RZ Mines to tour revegetated mine sites. President Pat O'Brien, secretary Rosemary Burgess and organising secretary Molly Crawford will visit New South.Wales' Crowdy Bay National Park and Tomago Sandbeds Operations and the Northern Territory's Ranger Uranium Mine. Mr O'Brien said it would give them a firsthand look at how well these mine sites had revegetated. "We are particularly interested in touring the NSW sites because they are sand areas similar to Bayfield National Park," he said. "Ranger Uranium Project will also be interesting to see because although it isn't a sand area, it has similar tropical conditions. "We not only want to see revegatation but also how well land forms were rebuilt and whether flora and fauna have readily gone back to the revegatated sites."

Rockhampton 40 Bolsover St 22 3680

Mr O'Brien said the tour had been an idea that both RZ Mines and the Wildlife Preservation Society had thought about. It gives RZ Mines a chance to show what has happened with other sandmining projects and the Wildlife Preservation Society a first-hand look at places similar to Bayfield. RZ Mines has organised a party to tour the sites from May 3 to May 8. The party includes Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton, Environment, Conservation and Tourism Minister Geoff Muntz, Wildlife Preservation Society State president Don Henry, National Parks and Wildlife Service's Steve Barry, RZ Mines environmental officer John Simpson and a qualified biologist. The biologist will be chosen by the Wildlife Preservation Society. Mr O'Brien said the society would also independently look at Cooloola, near Noosa, and St radbroke Island, because they are also sandmining areas similar to Bayfield.

EMU PARK CHAMBER OF COMMERCE TO SUPPORT BUSINESS THE inaugural meeting for the Emu Park and District Chamber of Commercewas held at the Endeavour Inn Motel on Tuesday, March 29. Chamber president Barry Laundry said the organisation was formed to foster and support businesses and commercial life in the area. "For too long negative forces have lulled the business community into a sense of apathy," he said. "Anti progress groups have influenced council decisions to the detriment of progressive development.

"It is expected the chamber will be a strong and effective lobby group to enable further business and commercial oppportunities." Mr Laundry said the chamber would have no political affiliations but would support candidates who had the best interests of commerce and trade at heart, regardless of party. Guest speakers included Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen and Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. Officer bearers elected were president Mr Laundry, vice presidents Ron Hyslop and

March Schultz, secretary Theo Wadsworth, treasurer Frank Withoos and committee members are Dianne Daley and Warren Spreadborough. Others present were Lilian Bowen, Cr Brian Dorey, Cr Lawrie Daley, Mathew Hock, Kerrie Hyslop, Roy Thwaite, Larry Owens, Ian Henderson, Judith Spreadborough, Meg Anderson, Wolfgang Bielharz, Graham Cummins, Maurie Cagney, Rob Jones, Kev Logan, Keith Nicholas, Glen Spence and Kerry Maker. Motions were passed to adopt the Capricorn

Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry's constitution and rules. Subscriptions were set at S20 a year with associate members S10. Meetings will be held on the last Tuesday every month starting at 7.15pm. Venues will be rotated between Fishermans Beach Restaurant, Endeavour Inn Motel and Pine Beach Hotel. Mrs Bowen made a donation to the chamber toward establishment costs. The next meeting will be on Tuesday, April 26, at the Pine Beach Hotel starting 7.15pm.

Candidate says MLA: AREA TO CERTAINLY GROW AND PROSPER thanks for faith AS a successful candidate at the recent polls I wish to place on record my appreciation to those people who put their faith in me. It iswith a great deal of humility that I accept the challenge over the next three years. We all have our problems but the most significant is the state of our local economy. Our small business people are under great stress, together with the mood existing in the State and Federal areas. I hope our council can really set the tone for the future and bring help to as many people as possible. Sure rates must be paid for services if standards are to be maintained. However there were some positive suggestions during the election campaign by various contenders. We should take those ideas on board that will benefit our community. - Cr Maurie Webb, 38 Cliff Street, Yeppoon.

EMU PARK, with its immense scenic beauty, will certainly grow and prosper if the situation is properly structured, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton told the Inaugural Emu Park and District Chamber of Commerce. Mr Hinton said improved quality of life and tourism was the key to Emu Park and district's • future growth. "Residential grown is dependent upon adequate services, including clean water and an adequate sewerage system," he said. "Clean water was now well under waywith the construction of a S4.8 million water filtration plant for the Capricorn Coast which is expected to be operating by July. "I am pleased to have been able to achieve a SI million interest susidy assistance for the the from State Cabinet over and above the normal 30 per cent subsidy payment." Mr Hinton said Emu Park's sewerage also needed special State Government asssistance to become viable.

"I was assured by Premier Mike Ahern that State Cabinet will give serious consideration to special assistance for Emu Park, and negotiations over technical matters between Livingstone Shire Council and the Water Resources Department are now proceeding," he said. "At the completion of these negotiations a proposition will be put to State Cabinet." Mr Hinton linked tourism potential with the whole Capricorn Coast. He said the harbour's extended developments and Rosslyn Bay marina would be major tourist drawcards. "The development of the scenic loop road from Rockhampton to Emu Park to Yeppoon and back to the Bruce Highway is critical to attracting the tourist trade to the Coast," he said: "Bums in beds is what it is all about, and we must get a share of the north-bound tourist trade. "To develop the loop road I have arranged for a major sign-boarding programme on the

Bruce Highway by the Main Roads Department with the first of these signs being put up in about three weeks." Mr Hinton said the Coast road would have to be indicated as a major tourist route on all road maps and the road would also have to be improved. "I already have a major road improvement programme in hand, costing S15 million, on the Capricorn Coast but there is still much to do," he said. "I am concerned that the road through the Lakes Creek area on the first leg of the tourist loop road is slummy and needs upgrading to give the right image for a major tourist road. "Difficult rail- crossings and the narrow `Black's Bridge' also need upgrading." Mr Hinton said Emu Park had beauty. "With the enthusiasm of its new chamber, led by Barry Laundry, this beauty should progress,", he said. "We just have to get the structure right."

TOP HONOUR TO SHELL CLUB KEPPEL BAY Shell Club was this week told it was the only Australian Club to be able to offer the Conchological Society of America (COA) award. Ena Coucom said the COA award was very prestigious and was only made available to certain clubs. "To be accepted for the COA award means our club must be well regarded with the conchological society," she said. "A visiting COA member, Donald Dan, on a shell-buying trip, stopped at the Coast in February. "He asked about the club and if it was interested in the COA award. From there we said

"yes" and now every year the COA will send a plaque and badge." Mrs Coucom said this award was available to any person in Keppel Bay Shell Club competitions. The COA's only requirement is that the winner's name, and a story, is made available for publication in its magazine. Keppel Bay Shell Club has about 400 members from all over the world. They have their own magazine from which people learn more about shells, exchange shells, and also find out what other members are doing. It is the only Australian club which can present the award, but members of other clubs can win it.

Contractors named for road job million," he said. "The first stage is due to be completed in mid-1988." Mr Hinton said the project was funded from, the State Government's Special Capital Works allocation made in February last year. "This project will provide a further two-lane road, running parallel to the existing road, and carry Rockhampton-bound traffic," he said. "The existing road will form the other section of the dual carriageway and carry Yeppoonbound traffic. "On completion, the Rockhampton-toYeppoon road will be consistent with roads to major tourist destinations, and boost tourism in Central Queensland."

MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week acting Main Roads Minister Paul Clauson announced the contractorswhich had won the job to build 5km of the four-lane highway from the Bruce Highway to Yeppoon. Mr Hinton said Cyril Golding Earthmoving Pty Ltd had been allocated 51,586,563 to build the second stage of road construction with the first 4.6km now under construction. "The full cost of the second stage is 52.307

Auction pleases LAND developer Ami Setu was happy with an auction on Saturday when stage two and stage two A of Island View Estate at Coconut Point, Zilzie, were offered. Billed as "the last place on the Capricorn Coast with beach frontage' nine allotments were offered. Already 23 lots have been sold. Mr Setu said two lots, one beachfront and another back block, had been sold, while a further three were under negotiation. "I was a bit disappointed on auction day but the last few days have shown the auction did its job," he said. "Generally people only go to the auction to look and not buy because they don't know what to expect. "After they see the land they go home and think about it and then decide whether to pursue buying a block." Mr Setu said there had been four allotments with beach frontage and five blocks 100m from the beach. Reserve prices ranged from 526,000 to 542,500. One beachfront lot and one back section sold after the auction and there have been further inquiries about three of the remaining back blocks. "I am pleased with the results from the auctions because it seems 50 per cent of the blocks are sold," he said.

Vandals hit school VANDALS broke into Yeppoon State High School during the Easter Break. Yeppoon Police Station officer-in-charge Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer said vandals had broken into, office, staffroom and tuckshop buildings. "The vandalism happened sometime between 3pm, April 1 and 10am, April 3," he said. "Vandalism was in the form of writing made by green paint and felt pens." The police are further investigating the matter and anyone with information should contact them on 39 1400.

Smith on committee DIVISION 3 councillor John Smith will represent Livingstone Shire on the Sports Advisory Committee along with Cr Brian Dorey. Cr Smith was inadvertently left out of last week's summary of councillors elected to represent the shire on committees.

`Outsiders' query CR Maurie Webb said this week his questioning of council's reasons for using "outside" suppliers such as banks, insurance and solicitors, in no way reflected on the services already in place. He said a discussion at the inauguaral meeting last week, which asked for expressions of interest from local firms and institutions, would be tabled and debated. Cr Webb said two reasons had prompted his move and he was pleased the idea was taken on board for debate. "Firstly, the council is a business, and a competitive approach should be taken so as to get the best value for the ratepayer's dollar," he said. "If savings can be made, or rates can be paid at each of the four banks in town, we will be that much better off. "Previously, solicitors could not actively pursue business but are now able to do so in a limited way." Cr Webb also said insurance people in town could well be able to organise a package through a broker to cover council needs. "The second important factor is the possibility of further employment for young people if these services are supported here," he said.

Capricorn Coast Mirror April 8 - April 14, 1988 - 7 THE Yeppoon Meals on Wheels is a volunteer service organisation which helps many residents but is always in need of people who can spare about an hour to help. Supervisor and deputy director Frank Mortensen said Meals on Wheels was a voluntary caring group. "We need people to spend about an hour every month to maintain volunteer rosters in the area," he said. "The need is urgent because unless volunteer strength is sustained, this vital community service could suffer. "Age is no barrier and young people are happily mixing with the older age group which depends upon this service." Mr Mortensen said it was important for people willing to help to have a caring and loving attitude. "The ideal person would be someone to serve regularly once a month," he said. "Supervisors are happy to arrange suitable days and people who can work additional days are always welcome. "We need drivers, with cars, to deliver meals and assistants to help out the drivers." Mr Mortensen said the service helped frailaged and disabled people, "There is an urgent need for volunteers because the society is facing increased demands," he said. If you can help phone Meals on Wheels, mornings only, on 39 2477 or Mr Mortensen, afternoons only, on 39 1320. *** DATE CLAIMER: Tuesday, April 12.

Easter Thursday and Saturday were better than last year but Easter Sunday and Monday seemed "pretty much the same". MURPH'S Sight'n Sound traditionally does well on Easter Saturday and Christmas, according to John Bretz. He said last Saturday was no exception and this trend had been normal for a number of years. The Savemore Centre's newness, and variety of shops, had contributed to the good trading figures. "A lot of Rockhampton people were shopping at the centre because their shops had closed and this helped trading," Mr Bretz said. H W FINDLAY and Co's Margaret Malinconico said the business never opened on Easter Saturday because it was too expensive. Mrs Malinconico said they had once tried opening during the Easter break but costs of employing staff on a public holiday and other overheads were higher than takings for the day. However, she said Easter Thursday takings hadbeen better than Christmas Eve, with most customers from the Coast. "Thursday was certainly busy and even busier than Christmas," she said. "I think the town did all right over the fourdaybreak and I don't think there's any need for a doom and gloom attitude because it seemed trade was good." EMU PARK General Store's Carol Millroy blamed the weather for a disappointing Easter break. Mrs Millroy had been told Easter trading would be better than during Christmas. She said Easter hadn't been as busy as expected and she was a little disappointed. "The days when the sun was out, Good Friday and Easter Monday, it was busy," she said. "I think the rain caused Easter Saturday and Sunday to be fairly normal trading days and not what was expected." REEF 'N'BEEF's Harry Hickman also lays the blame for a decline in trade on the weather. Mr Hickman said it was his first Easter at the Reef 'n'Beef but thought trade would have been slightly down on last year. He blamed the trade downturn on the rain. BEACHSIDE 66's Phyl Perrin said roadworks had affected the shop's trade. Mrs Perrin said Good Friday trade was good but Easter Saturday had been a normal day. Easter Sunday and Monday were slightly up but not as high as expected. "The Easter trade wasn't as good as Christmas but I think the road has affected trade," she said. "Once it's finished trade will improve." KINKA KIPPA's Geoff Buchanan said Easter trade had been three-times better than a normal Sunday's takings. mg ma ppm mg

Mr Buchanan said Good Friday had been "madness"; Easter Saturday steady; Easter Sunday hectic and Easter Monday also steady. He said there had been "heaps of tourists" buying at the shop but a number of locals also bought Easter supplies. Mr Buchanan said he couldn't compare figureS with past Easters, because it was only taken over this year, but was pleased with trade. STEWART AND BRUMM chemist's Duncan Stewart said they were happy with trade during Easter. Mr Stewart said he was disappointed for holidaymakers with the windy and rainy conditions. "That obviously affects businesses but we were happy with trade under the circumstances, particularly the week before Easter," he said. "I think conditions were reflected in trade on the weekend but the week before Easter made up for the four-day break." COOEE CORNER's Audrey Connors said trade was down a little on past years but didn't think it was for any particular reason. ZILZIE Store's Frank Withoos said Easter trade was the same as last year but he had expected it to be slightly better. Mr Withoos said people weren't spending money because they were saving for other activities. "When they come into the store they're talking about Airlie Beach, Agnes Waters and Expo, not Yeppoon and Emu Park," he said.

"They're saving their money for holidays at those places and not talking about coming to this area again. "They're also bored stiff because after about two hours there is nothing for the families to do." ANNIE'S PIES had its first Easter and owners Annette and Lance Lawer said they had traded "rather well". Mrs Lawer said the wholesale side of the business went well, especially on Thursday and Saturday, with some outlets ordering three times their normal quantities. Mr Lawer said he had baked double his usual amount of goods. The Lawers said they had worked longer hours to keep up with orders. Compared with Christmas, Mr Lawer said Easter had been slightly better but they couldn't compare figures with past years. "We also have a contract pie vendor who has only been working for the past month and his figures were tripled. That helped us a lot," he said. "Most shops ordered more than usual and we are pleased with sales."

YEPPOON's Returned Services League of Australia is planning a permanent display of service activites and Anzac Day Parades in the branch museum. Secretary Mery Scope said it would provide a record of Livingstone Shire's activities in wartime. This included the 42nd Battalion which was here from about 1939-1942; the Volunteer Defence Corp (VDC) in action throughout WWII; 11th Field Amubulance 1939-1942; and the American forces based in the shire from 1942-1943. "There will be a permanent photographic display of these services, Anzac Day parades and also the first Vietnam parade and Long Tan Day," he said. "War memorials in the shire will also be featured. This includes Yeppoon's Cenotaph, the Livingstone Shire Chamber's memorial, ones at The Caves and Emu Park, and four memorials in James Street representing people serving in WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam." Mr Scope said the display would be on four flaps with pictures either side. "They will be movable and at eye level to give people a good look at the pictures," he said. "The VDC started during WWII and was firstly made up from WWI soldiers when the Japanese entered the war. "People who couldn't join the services, and those too young for active service, later joined the VDC." Mr Scope said the 42nd Battalion was employed for normal Army defence at Cooee Bay. "The VDC and 42nd Battalion were right on Wreck Point, where an anti-aircraft gun was located," he said. "The 11th Field Ambulance always served with the 42nd Battalion and when it moved in 1942 to a base at Tiaro, it went too." Mr Scope said the Americans had an infantry and artillery base on Rockhampton Road, near The Caves, and at Nerimbera. "St Christopher's Chapel, at Nerimbera, is a memorial the Americans built during the war," he said. "They also had a convalescent camp and small ship training area at Cooee Bay. Signs of there still can still be seen at the Cooee Bay Recreational Camp." The museum is now about eight-years-old and has grown extensively over the years with public donations of memorabillia. The museum is representative of more than 100 years and includes flags, medals, uniforms,

models, letters and personal belongings, badges, model aeroplanes, weapons ranging from ammunition cartridges to swords, and represents all services from the 1870 Crimean War, WW1, WWII, Korea and Vietnam. Mr Scope said he hoped the flaps were finished before Remembrance Day, November 11. "Any suitable photographs can be reproduced and originals returned to the sender," he said. If people can help, phone Mr Scope on 39 1872.

Close results at B grade squash B GRADE play on Tuesday night at the Capricorn Coast Squash Centre saw some close results. One of the notable games was the Peter Denelzen/Ted Hill match with victory going to Peter in five. Share Turner narrowly defeated Terry Johnson 10-8 in the fifth. Junior reserve Ben Harding played well to take a game from Sean Hansen. Three marathons held the crowd spellbound and wearied the participants. The first was between Sandy Brown and Gary Hodgson with the result going to sandy 9-6 in the fifth. Husband and wife combatants Larry and Debbie Shanks were next with Larry narrowly getting the nod in five. The last was between Ann Priem and Ann Trigg with the latter coming back from two games down to take the match 10-9, 10-9, 9-7.

Hard weekend for basketballers Williams, Kruger win at Yeppoorl IT was a long hard weekend for the Capricorn Coast basketball under 18 boys at the Basketball Sunstate Classics held during Easter in Rockhampton. Although operated as a representative team, competition in the Sunstate Classics is the only place where state team selectors can watch the performance and development of individual players and select representative teams. The Coast boys, new to representive basketball, were not going to topple the cream of Queensland U/18s but a hastily put together team was thrown into the fray. Experienced observers said the boys had shown gutsy determination in maintaining the fight to the final bell. "No doubt some Coast names appear on the pages of selectors' noticeboards," publicity officer Don Willoughby said. With the opportunity of two months for intensive training the Coast will be taking much more calculated offence on the U/16 and U/14 Classics in June. Nominations and training is starting immediately. In the first A women's game last Monday Nomads with the first five toppled Billabong who also suffered absentees. The men's Saints/Coasters match saw a second half fightback by Coasters whittle away Saints 14 points half time lead but the final minutes were all Saints way and the win finished comfortably for the competition leaders. High school team Rimjammers looked a

good chance against Scoobs but captain Nic Basham's sit out through injury and the absence of the Rockhampton import left the teamm without an answer to the defence and rebounding of Scoobs' John Christensen. Young Tony Novak played a much improved post position while Rimjammers' Mike George had a run of sweet shots from the 45 in the second half that left the defence shaking their heads. Fixtures.

Rifle club talk Swans defeat Brothers with their turns to public strong play and accurate kicking opinion of gun laws, shooters • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 people who were "inherently dangerous". His sentiments were echoed by Emu Park members, who see moves to. limit sale of rifles as encroaching on their sport and giving it a bad name. The sport appeals to people who aim to become crack shots ... but if various governments have their way with anti-gun legislation, these crack shots will soon be labelled crackpots. Yet rifle shooting is a sport, like any other. To " the uninitiated, spending a day spreadeagled in the grass firing bullets at a targdt way off in the distance may seem an unusual sport, but as with all sports, the adherents defend their activity to the hilt. Let's face it ... roaring through the bush in four-wheel drive vehicles has its followers as does water ski-ing ... a sport requiring (for most) artificial feet (skis), a tow rope, a powerful fuel-guzzling boat, and a large body of calm water. In comparison, rifle shooters need only a rifle, ammunition, a shooting jacket, ear muffs, telescope and a long stretch of land with targets in the distance. Emu Park club captain Jack Cochrane was most vocal defending the sport. He has a long history in the sport and cannot recall deaths, or even injuries, resulting from it. • Safety is stressed at all times and "Rambo" actions are not tolerated. In fact, except for the noise, rifle shooting Ferns to be an extremely conservative sport followers who could be considered among th7 quieter members of the community. The RAF team members also defend their sport vigorously and face the same problems at home as Australian shooters now face. Mass murderers using guns have made communities everywhere take a second look at the ease of obtaining rifles and the carnage that can result when they are in the wrong hands. But on Sunday, at Emu Park, it was a time for enjoying the company of new friends with the same interests, and appreciating the skills on display. Just as a golfer can appreciate the skill of a Greg Norman who tears apart a golf course he is playing for the first time, the Emu Park shooters enjoyed watching Geoff Cox. After his first score of 50.8 he explained he knew the moment he fired his eighth and tenth shots that he was slightly off target ... that he missed the V bull. He returned the rifle to owner Matt Mills, and complimented him on its quality. Matt Mills then used his rifle to shoot a 49.3. He said the Emu Park range was "interesting" because of the wind drifting across from the right but had his doubts about the "tunnel effect" the same wind would create as it moved up the range. After his second shoot, he finished the day with a score of 100.11. Scores for the day: W Tait 102.9 (RAF); J Cochrane 102.6; F Payne 96.5 (RAF); S Yeomans 97.5 (R); D Morris 98.2 (R); B Barrett le.8, 1; R Nye 102.8 (RAF); G Cox 100.11 F); C Hockley 102.7 (RAF); P Barram 98.5; A Bible 102.5; A Powell 104.5, 2; K Trowbridge 101.4 (RAF); T Langley 100.4; R Truelson 100.7; B Cullen 101.6; M Mills 99.3; J Hutchison 100.2; A King 100.6; C McDonald 99.2; B Purdon 103.8 (RAF), 3; J Bryant 101.6 (RAF); J Dickson 101.10 (RAF) V Hunt 97.3 (RAF); K Wilson 81.1 (RAF).

YEPPOON Aussie Rules A grade won with strong play and accurate kicking. The hbme side set up a six goal advantage in the first half, to run out winners over last year's premiers Brothers. In the first half Yeppoon controlled the game with aggression and good team work. Goals came freely for all the forwards, with Anthony Kelly, Brett Motton, Bryan Munn, Rob Gardner and John Heathcote all scoring. Goals from two players, Nic Basham and Grant Boyd showed that they have no intention of being dropped from selection by totally dominating their opponents and giving good strong drive to their side. During the half time break Yeppoon had to reshuffle the side because of injury, and this released Brothers' Wayne Clifford from the claws of Grant Boyd. Wayne Clifford suddenly lifted his game and set Brothers into a winning motion to have 17 scoring shots to 11 by Yeppoon in the last half. Fortunately for Yeppoon or unfortunately for Brothers the backline players of Yeppoon, Les Lacey, Byron Dell and Mark Taylor put pressure on the opposition and force many errors and inaccurate kicking. Final score: Yeppoon 16-8, Brothers 12-16. Robert Gardner kicked six goals. Gary Fraser, Nick Basham and J R Heathcote all received injuries. Dinner for two at the Pacific Hotel was won by John Pidgeon and Jay Blake. The most constructive trophies donated by Phil Munro Plumming were won by Bill Culton and Brett Motton. "Congratulations to Tracey and Peter Bertalli on the birth of their daughter Bianca," the publicity officer said. A grade best players were Robert Gardner, Jay Blake, Steve Burn, Brett Motton and Grant Boyd. Yeppoon Reserve was defeated by Brothers 9-11, 6-8. Coach Bill Culton would have seen many good points in this game. Les Lacey, John Pidgeon, Danny Small and Des played with determination and good game play. But Bill would have been disappointed with the all over effort and fitness of his players. Yeppoon Australian Rules A grade and Reserve will play against Gladstone in Gladstone on Saturday.

TOP FRENCH IMPORTS FOR YEPPOON SEAGULLS YEPPOON Rugby League Club has scored another coup with notification that two French players will be arriving soon. Sponsored by the French Rugby League Association, the players will spend this season with the Seagulls. The Seagulls will have a truly international flavour when French Rugby League players Jean-Philippe Pougeau and Abet Baklouch join last month's imports Englishmen Phil Smith and Mark Parry. The French players are expected to arrive about May 13. Club president Cr Maurie Webb said negotiations for the two French players had been in process for some months. Yeppoon had definitely been in-the-draw for two players but didn't know who they were and what positions they played until last week. Both Jean-Philippe and_ Abet_ are FrenchMilitary-International team members. JeanPhilippe has also played for France as a junior and senior. Jean-Philippe, 22, was described by the French "Treize Magazine" as an innovator, with daring but good tackling skills. His list of achievements starts during the 1984/85 season when he played for Paris-

Chatillon, which won the cup that year, as a junior. He was a senior with Paris Chatillon First Grade during the 1985/86 season, playing 24 games at centre. He changed to Saint-Esteve First Grade for the 1986/87 season. Saint-Esteve won the cup from XM Catalan and his usefulness as either centre or fullback was highlighted during his 20 games with the team. In 1985 Jean-Philippe • represented Paris against New Zealand. He also toured New Zealand with the French University team in 1986. The same year, 1986, he was selected in the under 24 French Espoirs team which played England. Last year he played England with the French B team and New Guinea with the French A team. . - Abet Elakloticli can play prop, seCoricT row or lock, and was tagged as a good utility player. Abet, 28, played three years with the Junior XIII Catalan team from 1977 to 1980. During these years with Junior XIII Catalan, the team won the championship and the next season won the French cup. In 1980/81 Abet joined the Pia First Grade. For the next three seasons he played 78 games

for Pia before transferring to Saint-Esteve First Grade. Abet represented Saint-Esteve from 1983/84 to 1987/88. During the 1985/86 season SaintEsteve was beaten in the French Cup final but avenged the loss by winning it the following season. An Australian, Bernie Ernst who has played in France since 1982, said Abet was a competitive player both in strength and skills. He said Abet could play many positions but would be useful as a prop inAustralia, although he said he was more effective as a • lock in France. Both players will be eased into the Seagulls side with Reserve Grade matches. However, these two international players; while on a learning adventure to Australia, will:bring with_ them a wealth of playing 'eXperience. Cr Webb said while the French Rugby League Association was sponsoring, by paying their airfares to Australia, both Abet and JeanPhilippe would be looking for jobs, the same as Phil Smith and Mark Party, during their stay. FOOTNOTE: Information 'supplied about Jean-Philippe and Abet was written in French. St Brendan's College Brother Tim Cosgrove and Yvette from Yvette's Creperies translated the information.

Mirror because there's still the same amount of work to be completed but less time available ... so we didn't need the time wasting involvedwhen someone attempted to break into the office between Wednesday night and Thursday morning last week. Whoever it was managed to remove an aluminium flyscreen (damaging it beyond repair) and attempted to slide open the window. Now, this person was either disturbed in the act or rather sloppy because, after being unable to open the window they forgot they had left fingerprints (in fact, complete handprints) on the glass. You see, no-one at the Mirror has ever had time to clean the wNidt w and the resulting handprints stood out urn, er ah, handprints. Anyway, Yeppoon Police took away the window and had an expert from Rockhampton dust it. They were very pleased with the results ... clean prints from a dirty window. Suzy and "Old Baldy" spent part of good Friday retrieving the window frorthe police and refitting it. They decide, whoever had tried to break in might have another go so, instead of cleaning off the white dust used by police, they left it there for all, including the would-be thief, to see. •

• ABOVE: Winner of the 1986 Queen's Prize at Bisley, England, Geoff Cox, shows how seriously he treats each shot as he marks his card. He was competing at Emu Park on the weekend.

QUEEN'S PRIZE MARKSMAN HITS THE SPOT FLT.LT Geoff Cox (RAF retired) lay spreadeagled on the firing mound. It was his first visit to Emu Park Rifle Club and he was sighting along a borrowed rifle at a 500 yards distant target. The wind blew across the firing range from right to left and he was adjusting the rifle's sights to allow for the drift. Preparations over, he took aim and fired. The target dropped, the hit was patched and when the target was raised a black patch at the bottom centre signified Geoff Cox had hit a V bull ... the best a shooter can do. The V bull is a five-and-a-quarter-inch circle at the centre of the bull. While the bull itself, a solid black circle on the white target is visible to the naked eye, the V bull needs a telescope to be seen clearly. Geoff Cox marked his card to his right, returned to sighting the rifle and fired off another round ... another V bull. This meant the first two shots he was allowed for "sighting" were now part of his score because he had taken "sighters" and converted them into top scores.

. His next five shots were also V bulls. His eighth'was a bull, his ninth another V bull and his 10th a bull ... a score of 50.8. Because each of his 10 shots hit the bull they scored five points points totalling 50. Each V, bull-was worth a further 0.1 points giving a total score of 50.8. He had drawn a small crowd of interested onlookers and there was a ripple of praise for his effort. It was all low-key, rather RAF-ish. But everyone at Emu Park, the visitors from the Royal Air Force Target Rifle Club, their wives and the Emu Park Rifle Club members knew they had seen on of the best rifle shooters in the world ... Geoff Cox, the man who won the Queen's Prize at Bisley (England) in 1986. The Queen's Prize originated in 1860 and was first presented by Queen Victoria. To win the prize, all competitors, using service rifles, fire seven shots at each of the 200, 500 and 600 yard ranges. The 300 with the best scores qualify for the next round ... 10 shots fired at 300, 500 and 600 yards.

The 100 best scores, known as the Queen's Hundred, fire 15 shots at 900 and 1000 yards. The person with the highest aggregate, out of a possible 300 points, for the second and third rounds, is the winner. He gets a gold medal, a gold badge and #250. The Queen's Prize is the target for the world's finest marksmen. Ray Nye, an RAF shooter with the visitors, has shot at Emu Park before. He, and wife Jessie, visited in 1986 as guests of Emu Park member Alex Bacon. He said there were 10 shooters from England at Emu Park and a further 10 were heading directly to Sydney, Some were travelling with their wives and making a holiday of the visit. The purpose of the visit was to compete in the Bicentennial Shoot at the Anzac Range, Malabar, between April 8 and 24. But while many were travelling with their wives, they were not travelling with their rifles. Team manager Chris Hockley, MBE, a serving Wing Commander, said half the team had chosen to travel via Bangkok and Singapore and taking rifles through customs in these countries presented problems they could do without. Apparently, it is preferred that shooters take their rifles with them but certain countries impound them ... and getting them back is not simply a matter of picking them up on the way out. These countries "don't understand target rifle shooting as a sport", Wing Cmdr Hickley said. Instead, club members were looked on as • CONTINUED ON PAGE 15

A COLUMN on the back page should try, whenever possible, to have an item about horse racing ... the previous item was about a year ago and this one is a direct follow-up. Anyway, about a year ago, a certain well-known Yeppoon businessman told everyone he had won about $14,000 in a treble. For some unknown reason, heaps of friends turned up out of the woodwork and he then told everyone he had made it up as a joke (some of my contacts are real nice fellas). But, in fact, he had come dead close ... he had been pipped into second on the third leg. Anyhow, that's that. The point to that item was that this bloke had a punting system that worked (now I've got your attention). It only works twice a year but it pays big dividends. You see, this bloke reckons that trainer Tommy Smith always has a longshot running in the Epson and the Doncaster ... real longshots, and he reckons that more often than not, these longshots come in. That's what he said last year, that's what he predicted this year ... unfortunately, he forgot to tell me in time to get it in this column. The result is that this year, a nag called Lygon Arms came home at 40-1 in the Doncaster (I haven't checked because I don't follow the horses). Now, in case you forgot to back this horse because you'd forgotten the system, here's how it works ... Tommy Smith always has longshot in the Epson and the Doncaste apparently they're both races over a mile; he also has favourites but it's the longshot you look for ... then back big! My mate, who must also tell fishing stories, isn't retiring ... he picked the winner, told his wife about it, but didn't back it! w • • TOO many people must be taking this column seriously ... "Old Baldy" isn't that old. However, Pat Andersen gleefully told Mirror staff this week she had a chap in her shop (The Yellow Door Bookshop) who noticed Rhodes (17 and may not make 18) across the road. "What's 'OB's' middle son do at the paper," he said. Pat, seeing Rhodes, said he was the elder son. "No, no, no," the chap said, "he's the middle son ... the oldest son is the one with the moustache who sells advertisements." (The one with the moustache who sells ads isDave Ruck. He celebrated his 31st birthday last month.) "OB" has asked me to vehemently deny he has any family tieswhatsoever with Dave Ruck ... "forget that I would have fathered him when I was 11 ... he's a Kiwi," were the words he used!!! • • w "OB" has especially asked me to put in this ite...... he wants to wish Happy Birthday to a man who was a great help -in starting the Mirror ... Alan Stickley. Alan, a solicitor, spent hours, hours and hours reading stories, advising on legal aspects, advising on background and general' pointing the paper in the right directio He took an enormous interest in the paper (and still does) and both Suzy and "OB" want to thank him. The only way they can think of is to tell the world that Alan turns 50 on Saturday ... but he doesn't want a fuss made of the occasion!!!
