Causeway idea for channel to beat erosion MAIN ROADS workers are digging a channel at the Causeway in an attempt to solve the lake's silting and erosion problems. The channel works resulted from an interim report prepared by the Capricornia Institute of Advanced Education (CIAE). Works involve cutting a channel at the northern end of Kinka Beach. The channel heads in a straight line at right angles to the Causeway bridge to the sea. The present meandering path the tidal flow takes from the Causeway opening to the sea will be blocked with a sand dam. Main Roads Department spokesman Peter Evans said channel work had started last week. "Machines have to sit on special log platforms to avoid sinking into the marine mud," he said. "It's slow work and will cost about $30,000." Main Roads told Livingstone Shire Council the CIAE report said low tidal flows entering and leaving the Causeway Lake were responsible for its unstable condition. The CIAE said the Kinka Beach erosion problem could be improved by digging a temporary channel directly out to sea from the Causeway bridge, and blocking the present outlet channel with a sand dam. Shire engineer Pat Murphy, in a report, told council the long term stability could not be predicted. "It is possible that the proposal will assist in reducing Kinka Beach erosion but it will depend on future weather conditions," he said. "It is hoped favourable weather conditions will prevail so vegetation can be established and increase stability." The CIAE said if adverse weather conditions prevailed both the sand dam and relocated channel could be damaged. "But damage would not produce conditions any worse than those which now exist," its report said. Main Roads told council it was interested in the case because of the vulnerability to erosion of the Scenic Highway at Kinka Beach. It funded the CIAE report and will also pay for the proposed temporary works.

COAST MANAGER WILL GIVE NEW DIRECTION TO LA BAMBA THE $1.6 Million Capricorn Coast-owned La Bamba Nightclub is now also under Coast management with the appointment this week of David Young as manager. His appointment quashes rumours rife on the Coast over the past few weeks that La Bamba was closing. Mr Young, a Yeppoon resident, was promoted to the position following a meeting of the board of directors of Macedory Pty Ltd, the nightclub's owners. He has been involved with La Bamba from the early planning stage when he was then second-in-charge of the Railway Hotel. His appointment follows the expiry of contracts involving the management team which oversaw the nightclub's opening. Mr Young said La Bamba was over the teething problems of the first few months and any bags in the operation had been ironed out.

"La Bamba has had its share of hassles since December but at no stage has closing the nightclub even been considered," Mr Young said. "There has been a restructuring of management to involve Coast people more in the dayto-day running of the facility. "We've listened to the regular Coast patrons and we're now embarking on an exciting programme of winter promotions," Mr Young said. "What we've heard from patrons is they want more live entertainment ... and not just bands. We're looking at bringing stage acts to the nightclub so there's more to a night out than just dancing." One of La Bamba's problems has been attracting the more mature patron ... the over-30 who can't find the sort of entertainment they

want. "I'm working on a regular cabaret night, probably on a Thursday, for people who want a night out that includes a top-class meal, a fine wine and a first-class stage act," Mr Young said. "It will be a laid-back sort of night. The emphasis will be on a night where patrons are entertained rather than providing their own entertainment on the dance floor." "We've put out feelers for entertainers such as the Four Kinsmen, Col Elliott, Kevin (Bloody) Wilson, Maria Dallas and, hopefully, Max Gillies. "These are practically household names and they represent the style of entertainment we will be presenting. They are acts which not only draw a full house, but also perform at their best when playing to a crowd."

La Bamba will continue to open nightly from Wednesday to Sunday but Mr Young plans to open on other nights for special events. "The State of Origin matches are the first that come to mind because the club can provide the big screen, the right sound and the atmosphere to make it worthwhile leaving the small screen at home," he said. Because of recent changes to the Liquor Act, the nightclub will also be able to open from 11am for special functions such as Giggle and Gossip and Melbourne Cup days. "Also, daytime opening will allow for the start of a regular Beer and Beef function for business people. There will be guest speakers with something to say of interest to the Capricorn Coast," Mr Young said. A Macedory Pty Ltd spokesman said Mr Young's appointment represented a new direction for the nightclub

The New




■ BY CATHY LOGAN MORE than 240 former St Ursula's pupils recalled the best days of their lives on the weekend at the school's celebration of 70 years of education on the Capricorn Coast. St Ursula's College was founded in 1917 and has taught both boys and girls. At one time it was the only higher school for education on the Coast. More than 240 "old girls" and teachers trod the path of teenage haunts on Sunday during birthday celebrations. For some it was the first time in many years they had visited their old school. Snapshots of young girls in their mid-teens scattered among the school's file of memorabilia probably seemed unusual to many "old girls" whose own children have reached the same age. For old friends, meeting for the first time in years, there was only an afternoon in which to pass on news of what they had been doing since leaving St Ursula's. The school first opened its doors to primary school students in 1917. St Ursula's started with a group of holidaying Presentation Sisters from Longreach. The aim was to give "Westerners" the chance of an education by the sea. Bishop Joseph Shiel blessed the first convent called St Joseph's on January 21, 1917. This was the primary school. St Ursula's College opened on March 12, 1918. Mother Mary Ursula Kennedy, after whom the secondary school is named, enrolled both the first primary and secondary students. There were 30 to 40 day students and 25 boarders enrolled for the primary school and St Ursula's had a roll call of 32. Officially registered as a secondary school in 1920, the school has weathered many storms including the Great Depression during the 1930s and World War II. The school started off in the what is now the grade eight, nine and 10 dormitories. The convent was opened on Sunday, December 9, 1923. Bishop Sheil again blessed the new building. In this time the school had also added to its acre of land to provide sports and playground areas. A further strip along Arthur Street was bought in 1957 for playground. The low brick wall was erected during 1954/55 and two years later St Ursula's built its brick toilet block adjacent to the boarders' residence. The basement (where the music academy is now housed) was then used as a temporary science block. ' St Joseph's Primary School which had steadily increased enrolments finally outgrew its schoolrooms and a brand new primary school was built across the road. St Joseph's became Sacred Heart Primary School when the big move was made in 1957. After improvements were made, the old primary school rooms became the "Rec" Hall and the scene for many high teas, socials and festivities. St Ursula's College enrolments went through a shaky period during the 60s but still improvements continued. More land was acquired and a new 3-storey brick building called the Mother Mary Ursula Kennedy Wing was finished. The school's Golden Jubilee was in 1967 and highlight of the year's celebrations was the blessing by Bishop Rush of a new classroom and science block. The school buildings were used as a refectory for the sisters and dormitories for boarders. There was a growing need to accommodate boarders and with the increasing numbers in mind the school bought a Queen Street house which was used as a temporary dormitory for one year in 1969. Enrolments had reached 170 by 1971 and on August 29, the same year, a new dormitory was built above the classroom and science room block. It was considered a luxurious dormitory because the floors were carpeted and the room comfortably furnished. Numbers had topped 200 by 1972 and the need for expansion was increasingly evident and plans were started to build more classrooms and resource rooms. St Ursula's library was completed in 1975

and during the 80s was remodelled again to give students an invaluable complex with information about all subjects. The same year the junior laboratory was built adjacent to the old lab room. 1975 was a big year for extensions and improvements. A new staff room, four new classrooms and extensions to the administration block were blessed by Bishop Bernard Wallace on October 24. An important meeting place for the whole college, the Assembly Hall, greeted students during 1977. The hall is used annually for the school's speech nights and other functions during the year. Since 1977, four more classrooms, home economics room, administration block and staff room extensions have been prompted by the school's increasing needs. Principal Sr Marion Kingston said in 1988 there were 226 enrolled students but since its 1918 beginnings 3082 have attended the college. Sr Marion said celebrations had been well attended with about 300 "old girls" attending the special lunch. "A number of old boys also attended 70th birthday celebrations because at one time it was the only place offering higher school education," she said. "Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves but a number remarked on how much the school had changed." Sr Marion said the first boarder to enrol on March 12, 1918, Annie Howard nee Lawrence had sent her best wishes. "Mrs Howard lives in Rockhampton but was unable to attend celebrations," she said. "Reaching 70 yearswas a great milestone in the school's history and we couldn't think of a better reason for a celebration."


5 from Coast for weekend Synod FIVE Capricorn Coast residents will be attending the annual Rockhampton Anglican Diocese Synod from Saturday, April 30 to Monday, May 2. Keppel Parish representatives Fr John Cornish, Rev Phillip Ward, Joy Walsh, Brian Bartley and Major Jack Crigan will join representatives from as far as Winton in the west, Moranbah in the north and Rodd's Bay in the south. The Synod will discuss a number of issues including poker machines, the ordination of women as priests, justice for the Aboriginal community and for families, and domestic violence and sexual abuse in families. The Synod will also consider church legislation items including amendments to Superannuation Canon. There will also be a variety of reports from church organisations on aspects of diocesan life and motions for debate about matters of social concern and church government. Diocese clery will go to Tanyalla Conference Centre at Tannum Sands following the Synod for a four-day retreat to be conducted by Archdeacon Ian George from Canberra.

SMALL BUSINESS CORP. HEAD WILL ADDRESS CHAMBER SMALL businesses, the problems they face and ways to address these problems, will be discussed during the Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry's monthly meeting at Bayview Tower on Tuesday, May 3, starting at 6.30pm. Chamber president Andrew McClelland said main speaker would be Small Business Development Corporation director Colleen Anger who would be addressing problems faced by small businesses, retail and small services. "Mrs Anger has a wealth of knowledge collected from around the State and will particularly refer to Capricorn Coast problems," he said. Mrs Anger, who was contacted in Brisbane on Wednesday, said many Australian business people had an attitude that "service means servitude". "Although the nation is 200 years down the track from first settlement, it still has a hangover from the penal colony days," she said. "Running a successful business includes offering good service, and that seems to mean 1111"5111%-4411,ii

overcoming the great Australian hangup of not being able to bow your head. "We are receiving more and more overseas tourists, particularly from Asia, where service and civility are commonplace." She said the Small Business Development Corporation was a statutory authority established by the Queensland Government, which employed experienced marketplace people to assist small business. The Corporation's primary objective was to stimulate business growth and job prospects, starting with basic education and training programmes. "Before anyone starts a business they should examine their reasons, and whether they really understand the business under consideration, and the chance of success," Mrs Anger said. She said lack of management know-how was a major contributing factor for the collapse of many businesses. "It's alarming to consider that 63 per cent of small businesses fail within five years due to management problems," she said. di/ , 1'I•

Mrs Anger said that small business operators should not allow themselves to be affected by negative hype about the stockmarket crash. "I see no evidence of a depression ... the gamblers are going back to the casino and the stockmarket is facing reality," she said. "Lower interest rates, the return of negative gearing, the Bicentennial, Expo and the Australian dollar exchange rate all provide a ray of sunshine for the business community. "Benefits would flow from an increase in tourism, and the economic stimulus from the rise in house construction would be felt in demand for householder durables, domestic production and employment." Mr McClelland said the May meeting was important and all members and non-members were invited to attend to find out more of what Mrs Anger had to offer small businesses in the way of overcoming some problems they may face. He said Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton had arranged for Mrs Anger to visit Yeppoon to address the chamber. The chamber is also preparing for it Trade Fair in August. Spokesman Mike Walter said

this week August 5, 6 and 7 had been set aside for the Trade Fair. "There are limited spaces for booking and parties interested in holding displays during the Trade Fair should make their bookings now," he said. "Bookings can be made through Pat Andersen at the Yellow Door Book Exchange." For further information contact Mr McClelland on 39 1954.

Ahern, Sparkes, Sinclair coming for Young Nationals' conference QUEENSLAND Premier Mike Ahern, National Party State president Sir Robert Sparkes and Federal Leader Ian Sinclair will be on the Coast during the Labour Day weekend for the 31st Young Nationals' State Conference. Delegates from Queensland's 65 Young Nationals branches and a number of other interested people will attend the three-day conference to be held in Yeppoon Town Hall. It's the first time the Capricorn Coast has hosted the Young Nationals conference and more than 200 people are expected to attend.

Minister's `neigh' to island horse riding A REQUEST by Livingstone Shire Council for an approval in principal from Lands Minister Bill Glasson for the allocation of a permit to occupy for a horse riding school on five acres on Great Keppel Island has been turned down. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said he has been advised by the minister that an application by Mr B Watson was refused by the minister on the grounds that the area sought was too large, given the sensitivity of the environment and the neighbouring land uses. "The Government had previously been prepared to consider a permit for one acre, on a short term trial basis, if such a land use was supported by the Livingstone Shire Council," Mr Hinton said. "However, Livingstone Shire by-laws require that the minimum area is five acres, and this has been ruled as unacceptable to the Government."

Fun funds day for Emu Park complex THE Don Ireland Swimming Complex Committee is holding a fundraising May Festival on Sunday, May 1, starting from Kerr Park at 11am with a street parade. Floats, pipeband and other amusements set the scene for festivities which will L-ontinue in Bell Park with a fete. Three-legged races and of her novelties for the whole family to enjoy will be available. All the stalls, including cakes, pies and lollies, will 'be holding raffles. This is one major fundraising function for the Don Ireland Swimming Complex. Fete fun lasts from 11am to 4pm.

Young Nationals will be using the conference to discuss issues, both political and other, they think are of interest. Spokesman Paul Schembri said there were more than 50 resolutions to be debated. Mr Schembri said some resolutions would be about possible gun law legislation, a proposed fuel tax and legalisation of poker machines. "Young Nationals will also be discussing the party's aims, directions and policies," Mr Schembri said. "Mr Ahern, Mr Sparkes and Mr Sinclair will all be addressing the conference and there will be a chance for questions. "Mr Ahern will officially open the conference on Sunday after opening Expo earlier in the day." Mr Schembri said the Premier traditionally opened the conference and it would be the first time Mr Ahern, as Premier, would be addressing the State Conference. "We are also pleased to have Mr Ahern openin our conference because he is a former State president of Young Nationals," he said.

Bicentennial Air Race takes the `bold' out of Coast's 'old' pilot • Compiled firm notes by Capricorn Coast entrant in the Bert Hinkle,. Bicentennial Air Race Alan Stevenson THE 133 aircraft were flagged off at 5am from Archerfield on Saturday, April 23 with tens of thousands of spectators, complete with Army band and marching girls for the Bert Hinkler Bicentennial Air Race. We left at one minute intervals for Warwick, the first checkpoint, then off to Roma for a tour of the town. Half of Roma turned out to greet the group. We took off for Charleville and the a/c had to report over Tooloombilla Station, a small homestead hidden by trees. Stan Collard told us that 30 per cent of the aircraft did not make the check point and some took up to 10 minutes flying around before they found it. Our plane hit it on the nose. At Charleville, I met a few old friends in the

MLA: licences will protect tourists TOURISTS will be fully protected against negligence, fraud, mistakes and incompetence under a new Travel Agents Licencing Legislation put through State Parliament this week. "The new scheme, which consisted of a legislative umbrella for travel agents whereby they will join a National Travel Compensation scheme, will provide insurance to protect tourists from being stranded on holidays or from losses associated with the failure of travel agents to perform," Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said in parliament this week. "The Government has acted at the request of the Queensland Travel Agents' Association, which seeks to upgrade the professional image of its industry, and to provide full confidence in the industry. "It does not mean a 'closed shop' as any reputable person with business experience and financial viability will be able to gain a travel agents' licence." He said the travel agent must have adequate experience in the industry or employ someone with adequate experience. "I was surprised that the Liberal Party had opposed the Bill, as it has the support of both the industry and the Consumer Affairs Bureau."

race. Coast old-timers will remember Harry Goodson who owned the Yeppoon Pharmacy. He is flying with Stow Kentish and Ron Parr in the slipperiest Cessna 180 tail dragger in Australia. They are my tip to win. Their handicap airspeed is about 126 knots and the aeroplane is so fast it can do that without the engine going. Also in the race is an old RAAF crew partner of mine ... Jim Cox, who was a Sergeant Pilot on Dakotas with me in 1955. He stayed in the service and flew 20 different types of helicopters, was CO of the RAAF helicopters in Vietnam, had a few bullet wounds while flying, won a distinguished flying cross and ended up an Air Commodore. At the early morning briefing in Charleville, it was announced the weather in Charters Towers was shocking so we landed at Barcaldine for a few hours till it improved. All 133 aircraft landed safely, although some right on dark. Early next morning the met man told of rain and cloud at Cairns and so the whole fleet landed at Ingham and stayed there till the authorities let us all fly low level up the Hinchinbrook Channel along the Coast to Cairns ... most of it in rain. The air traffic controllers all had heart attacks with light aircraft buzzing around the big commercial jets. A hairy experience but fortunately no one bumped anyone else. This morning Tuesday (April 26), early call 4.30am, briefing 5.30am in Cairns and a mad scramble just over the mountains and just below rain cloud to Mareeba and through to Normanton, Burketown and Mount Isa. Tomorrow night will be Cloncurry; Thursday, Longreach for the Stockmans Hall of Fame and Friday, Blackall, Emerald and Bundaberg. Sunday, off to Kingaroy and to Brisbane to fly over Expo, with the State Governor's dinner at night. Most of the pilots have not experienced remote area flying as they just flit around the coast. This exercise has given some of them a fright, but the nine days will make them more responsible pilots. There is the old saying, `There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but very few old bold pilots" ... I'm bloody old and not bold any more.

THE Vaughans cleaned up in Yeppoon Camera Club's April competitions. Harold won the colour slides section, people category with Botany, Althea was second with Cream Cake and won a merit, Peter Cook third with Jenny. Margaret Kean was awarded a merit and Rex Kean won two. In the colour prints section, again people category, Althea and Harold changed positions. Althea won with Lynda Joy and Harold second with Lynda. In third place was Margaret Kean with Sleeping Mother. Rockhampton's Keith Ireland was the evening's judge. He also gave a talk on 'introducing birds'. Keith has an interesting array of bird hides, culminating in the deluxe model. Standing in waist deep water in a hide is dedication of the highest order, but the results in beautiful slides, of a lotus bird incubating eggs were obviously worth the effort. The club meets on the second Monday of each month at the RSL Hall, 8pm. *** COMPETITION winners at the St James Guild cent sale were Sue Wanchap, Maureen Dyer, Elsie Hinton and Norma Walters all of Yeppoon and Brisbane visitor Emily O'Donnell. Lennie Jordan won a prize for being the oldest mother and Sue Wanchap won the lucky door. *** THE next Nursing Mothers meeting is on May 12, 19 Tucker Street, Yeppoon.

Lucky member for the month was Hawaiian member Laura Conradson. The rare shell raffle was won by Yeppoon member Patsy Geddes.

EMU PARK and Yeppoon Returned Service League presidents have hailed the 1988 Anzac Day services and marches as "one of the best ever" with more than 2000 people attending activities. Emu Park RSL president Frank Capenter said events had been "very well attended" with about 63 at the Dawn Service, and 400 during the march and following service at the Cenotaph. Mr Capenter said the day had been made more meaningful with the presence of 12 engineers from the 2nd Field Regiment of the 7th Field Squadron of the Australian Army who had come from Shoalwater Bay to attend services on the Coast. "It was nice to see so many supporter turn out for Anzac Day," Mr Carpenter said. His thoughts were echoed by Yeppoon RSL president Stan Kent who said it was encouraging to see so many young people participating in the march. "There were more young people marching than ever before," he said. "In my opinion, I think they're more aware of what Anzac Day means." Yeppoon RSL secretary Mery Scope said about 120 attended the Dawn Service; 954 actually marched and about 400 others attended the service at the Cenotaph. "It was probably the biggest march Yeppoon's ever had," he said. "All the schools in the area were represented and 16 members from the 7th Field Squadron 2nd FER took part in the march."

SALON 24's Heidi Gratton will be rubbing shoulders with some of the world's best this weekend during the World Hair Championships at Jupiters Casino on the Gold Coast. Ann Devlin said Heidi had so far been the only Central Queensland hairdresser to enter the world championships which attracts participants from all around the globe. The competition will be run over two days, Sunday, May 1 and Monday, May 2. Heidi will be attempting to beat other competitors with her Total Look and haircut styles. Ann Devlin will be going along to give support. She said Heidi had wanted to do more than just watch the championships. "It is the first time Australia has had a big enough venue to hold the world championships," Ann said. "On-lookers have to reserve boxes because it attracts so many participants and interested observers." Heidi and Ann will leave Friday night with their two models, who attend Yeppoon State High School. "Heidi has a good chance of winning but even if she doesn't the experience gained from the championships will be invaluable," she said. "Once, only the older hairdressers would have won the competitions, but now a number of younger hairdressers are starting to win."

I FIND this letter very difficult to write, but I must say thanks to a lot of people who have helped me during the seasons I have been involved with the Yeppoon Junior Australian Rules Club. First and foremost this must go to Jim Bailey who founded the juniors with Ann Thompson, Alf Lawrence, Yvonne and Peter Motton. Jim has been coach of all squads during this period and I am sure what has happened to the club in the past three weeks must tear his heart out the same as it has done to Irene and myself. To Jim and Ann thank you, for hanging in there as much as you have and also thank you for your help and support. To Boyd and Robyn Battersby: these people, together with all the family, have put in more time for our club than any other combination you could name. Boyd marks the ground, sets the goals for U/11s oval and makes sure the scoreboard is handled and then runs and maintains the refreshment bar for the complete day. Robyn organises the canteen, orders the food and with the help of her girls, she then has to spend the day behind the counter serving. Shaun and Darren are always prepared to do the boundary, umpire, run water or just be runners for Irene. To the whole family thank you for your support over the past years. To the committee as a whole: again I say thank you. Graham Basham our treasurer: Since he has taken this position we have had no problem financially and this task has been handled very professionally indeed. Graham thank you once again. Chris Steele has been the secretary of the club and also very efficient and prompt in any correspondence that had to be handled. Chris thank you. To Carol and Paul Dean, both committee, thank you for your donations both monetary and photocopying for the last two or three years. To our coaches over the last few years: Jim Bailey, Brett Odell, Shane Steele, Brett Motton, Joe Geier, Kevin Rice, John Caddy, Lance Lawer, Col Jamieson, Rick Williams, Ivan Bromley, to name a few I say thanks. Without these people the Junior Swans would not have had an average of two premierships per year over the last four or five years plus having played in all three grand finals over the same period. Over this period we have grown to be the

strongest club in our competition also the most financial and efficient without being classed in the top three clubs in country Queensland. This is one fact that I am extremely proud of and it couldn't have happened without all the support from the people I have just mentioned. There is another person I must give a report on and that is my wife Irene. She has been a tireless worker for both the club and the league, togetherwith being register of our club for the past four years as well as getting four teams on the ground every Sunday and sitting on the bench with the boys the full time organising all the water boys, runners, washing the jumpers, and every other chore that has to be handled. I hope the people who take over this position know how to handle it and appreciate the amount of time and dedication it takes. Irene also had the duty to sit down at training for two to three hours every Wednesday and Friday nights or if she couldn't do it, I would have to. We haven't missed a delegates meeting in the last four or five years and she has been team manager for the Central Queensland U/13 and U/15 teams for the last five years. After putting all this time in over the last seven years you can imagine how it hurts when in three weeks the whole system and core fell apart. In conclusion I would like to pay my respects to past president Bill Thomson and say thanks for your support over your time as senior president. During this time the juniors enjoyed riding • on the crest of the wave and I think over the two year period there were no less than 18 juniors given over to the senior ranks. I feel sure if more time was given or allowed our club as a whole would be functioning at top efficiency within another 12 months but sadly this has not happened. To the parents of all juniors: thank you for the support we have received especially at presentation nights. I feel to have in excess of 200 people turn up to this night every year for the last three years proves I couldn't be doing too much wrong. I would like to wish the club every success in the future and I can assure everyone I did have my heart and soul in the club. So on behalf of Irene and myself we will say goodbye. - Ross Mclndoe, Statue Bay.

Opinion changes on death penally DURING December 1987, a small petition was conducted in the shopping area of Yeppoon. This was in regard to the death sentence being re-introduced for crimes of murder and traumatic violence. Over a weekly span of only 10 hours, 10 sheetswere filled with signatures. I believe the deterrence of capital punishment is one which, due to current spate of horrifying and violent crimes, bares a great deal of consideration. It must be both heartbreaking and devastating for the relations of a victim of these disgusting attacks and as a concerned citizen and parent, I honestly thought that capital punishment was the only answer to control the sadists who inflict such cruelty upon their victims. In certain cases I still believe it may be the only deterrent; however only where the murderer is guilty beyond any doubt whatsoever. Friday evening, April 8, after listening to Member for Rockhampton Paul Braddy speak at Yeppoon Town Hall I was forced to alter my opinion. Incomprehensible as the amount of corruption is, within some areas of Queensland, the re-introduction of capital punishment could well mean that some falsely accused people could be easily 'gotten out of the way at the whim of powers used wrongly'. Isn't it frightening to think that people's lives and actions can be manipulated by higher authority when they may not possess the decency to practice ethical behaviour and those who wish to do so are either transferred or held down, in their chosen work because of greed, and immoral reasons.

Mr Braddy spoke well on Friday night, even if the interested who attended, were few. There has to be action taken to stop corruption, criminal assaults and provide the people in positions where they may come under fire for doing their job, honestly, with some firm and reliable representation. Taken from "Modern Australia" 1939-1970, there is a piece in this book by Frank Crowley, that says in argument against the abolition, by Mr BR Pelly: Neither the Attorney-General nor the member for Lane Cove had anything to say about the innocent lives that are taken by murderers. It would be wrong for this House to remove the death penalty from the statute book on the unsubstantiated basis that at some time or other a man might conceivably, by a complete miscarriage of justice, be hanged for a crime that he did not commit, at the same time ignoring the fact that almost every time a murder is committed an innocent person loses his/her life". That is from the NSW Parliamentary Debates Legislative Assembly March 2.3, 1955. This argument could be used today and in any state when we consider the loss of lives over the past 33 years. The loss has been catastrophic and the crime of more horrendous variety ... I now ask you, the citizens for your opinions. There must be a deterren't, however there must be, as the top priority a code of decency so that should a deterrent be implemented for such crime, it will be exercised beyond any doubt and be administered by people of integrity who will serve Australian people with the fair and equal justice they deserve. - Jan Edwards, 64 Braithwaite Street, Yeppoon.

KICKBOXER LEAVES HIS MARK A CAPRICORN Coast kickboxer has left his mark on the sport after his first title fight at Redbank, Brisbane. After only eight months in the sport, Ronald O'Leary entered, and won, his first title in the sport. O'Leary said kickboxing was a cross between boxing and karate. He became interested in the sport through karate, which he also started learning eight months ago. He learns under Zen Do Kai Sensei Michael Parker and has a green belt in karate.

The tournament attracted competitors from around the Brisbane region. Ronald can also claim another first. He said he was the first Central Queenslander to enter a kickboxing title and win. Matched against other novices he won a trophy. At the same titles, two Queensland and an Australian title were contested by more experienced kickboxers. O'Leary is now in training for another title on June 18 in Brisbane. He will trainwith other karate exponents every Tuesday and Thursday from 5.30-7.30pm.

Basketballers show enthusiasm Ladies squash BEI-1ER than 50 per cent of Capricorn Coast basketball junior players showed their enthusiasm to develop their skills at the Bryan Allen Clinic held at Cooee Bay last Sunday. So impressed was Bryan with the juniors that he asked for the opportunity to conduct more sessions. Officials will be looking for some stadium booking opportunities in the second half of the year for more of the sessions. Juniors and intermediates played for the vital fourth spot which would keep grand final chances alive for the summer competition. Both games were cliff hangers in which the losers missed out by a single basket. Junior teams Tigers and Bobcats, who started the competition with very ordinary performances, showed what they had learnt over the season by providing an entertaining and enthusiastic match in this vital game. Bobcats had no answer to Tigers' Dino Inguaner. In the first half Dino rebounded in defence and managed to break from the opposition to effect quick scores at the opposite end and he alone scored Tigers first half lead. Bobcats defence pinned down Inguaner in the second half, but Aaron Kennedy, Luke Kalachi and Cody Harris kept the score board going against the extended defence. Bobcats had conceded only a two point lead at the break, but could not close the gap in the back half despite several chances to gain the ascendency. Adrian Moore top scored with Philip Staley, Robert White and Wesley Marshall chipping in for the Bobcats final 18. The intermediates contest had the girls of Lescence grabbing an early break on Bombers

Coast rugby reps perform well CAPCOAST A grade Rugby Union representives performed well in the Rockhampton side at the CQ Carnival in Gladstone last weekend. The Rockhampton side showed no mercy in the final ... downing Western Queensland 35-4 after leading 26-0 at halftime. Coast props John Atkinson and Mark Gilligan were the driving force in the forwards. They paved the way for the powerful Rocky pack to run rampant over the lighter Western Queensland forwards. Flanker Alan Myles made the most of his first carnival having a strong game in the loose. Myles played with purpose and was first to be seen at many of the break downs. For the super fit Myles it's been a strong start

to the season ... he remains a key figure in the Coast's forward pack. Backs Nick Corberts and Steve Kavanagh had a splendid game. Corbert organised his backline well, putting in some well lined passes to send the Rocky backs away on yet another raid. Kavanagh was all class, adventurous in the attack and delivering some devastating blows in defence. This performance cemented his place in the Central Queensland side to play South Queensland in Longreach thisweekend. The others to be named were props John Atkinson and Mark Gilligan. CapCoast A grade take on Cities at Rugby Park this Saturday. The U/19 side take on Institute at the Rugby Park.

Sportsmanship in Junior rules YEPPOON Australian Rules organisers were pleased to see the sportsmanship displayed last weekend by junior players when they helped the Brothers side in the under 11 game. Thanks was extended to Gary Fraser for umpiring the games. The skill awards for the three games went to Steve Broadhurst and Nathan Fraser for marking; Cookie Campbell, back turns; Cameron Blake, drop punt kicking; Ben Sheppard, anticipation of Aussie rules.

Benefit day THIRTY nine bowlers from Rockhampton joined with 31 Singing Ship members last Sunday for the Don Ireland Swimming Complex Benefit Day. After five games played as mixed rinks, highest points score of 45 was held by two teams, but on a countback, Vi Anderson's Kent Street team were winners, with Lil Mills' Emu Park team runners up. A clock valued at $200, donated by Lloyd Webber for a raffle, was won by A Lewis from Livingstone Shirg Council. In a snap raffle prizes donated by Avis Mallory and Eddie Brookswere won by Ray Farrow and Vi Anderson. The club thanks the donors of these prizes, and the bowlers who attended. From our combined efforts $450 was raised for the complex. The second round of the Vamvakaris Cup will be played on Wednesday, May 4.

Coast netballers in round robin CAPRICORN Coast netballers played another round robin fixture on Wednesday, April 27. The official draw starts on Wednesday, May 4. Hazzards proved too strong in their first game defeating Pioneers Green, 11-5. Rockettes Black won on forfeit from Strays. During the 7.30pm games, Pioneers Maroon ran out winners from Rockettes Pink, 209, and Rockettes White lost to Pioneers Gold, 13-7. A close game between Hazzards and Rock-

which was whittled back by half time to a single point. It was bucket for bucket through the second half with the girls putting away a successful shot from the free throw line to give the schoolgirls a two point break with 30 seconds in the clock. With the ladies in possession it seemed they had the game won when an ill-considered attempted shot turned the bull over to the boys who made no mistakes in capitalising on the chance to tie the game. In extra time Lescence had lost heart and the final score was more a reflection of this five minutes than the major portion of the game. Top scorers for Bombers were Wesley Freeman and Andrew Moore while Kellie Stevensen and Nicky Wall topped for the girls. Juniors and Intermediates take a break next Sunday but U/14 boys nominated for the representative squad or any who wish to join the group will need to be at the stadium by 6pm Wednesday, May 4, for training. "As Mothers Day is almost upon us, all people holding raffle tickets sold or unsold should return them to their coach or Colleen Moody at Higgins Pharmancy in Savemore Centre during normal business hours by Friday, May 6," the publicity officer said. Fixtures for Monday, May 2: 6pm La Wetz v Pink Galahs, Stewards are Sam and C Willoughby; 7pm Billabong A v Nomads, J Christensen and D Willoughby; 8pm Saints v Hoot- _ ers, K Dooley and J Shackleton; 9pm Rimjammers v Coasters, R Campbell and D Worden. Wednesday, May 4: 6pm training for the U/ 14 boys; 7pm Gadabouts v Billabong B, D and A Moore; 8pm Resort Raiders v Pacers, D and Shame Willoughby. Bye: Scoob, Seagulls and B Men.

ettes Black resulted in a 7-all draw while Pioneers Green won on forfeit from Strays. The final games which started at 8.30pm resulted in resouding victories. Pioneers Maroon defeated Rockettes White, 15-2, and Pioneers Gold defeated Rockettes Pink, 21-4. Fixtures for May 4: 7pm - court 1, Strays v Vital Idols, umpires Pioneers Green; court 2, Hazzards v Pioneers Gold, umpires Rockettes Black; 8pm - court 1, Rockettes Pink v Pioneers Green, umpires Hazzards; court 2, Rockettes Black v Pioneers Maroon, umpires Pioneers Gold. Rockettes White has the bye.

Another display of strong play and good skill by all players resulted in a 15-11 to 3-4 win to the Yeppoon under 17 team. Bryan Munn and Mark Wigginton took up whistles to control the first half of a strong body game when Brothers tried to upset the home side. Change of umpires at half time because of a complaint by Brothers saw the Yeppoon team get on with its brand of football. This allowed Brothers to score only one point in the second half. "That showed supporters the umpiring was okay in the first half," Yeppoon Australian Rules publicity officer Col Jamieson said. Final score: Yeppoon 15-11; Brothers 3-4. Best players: Jason Jamieson, Adam Belot, Chris Wood and David Ward.

• ABOVE: Capricorn Coast Little Athletics closed the season with a presentation night on Friday, April 22. Pictured are the athletes who were awarded prizes for excelling in certain sporting events and for participation.

AWARDS PRESENTED TO 19 LITTLE ATHLETES CAPRICORN Coast Athletes celebrated the end of season with a presentation night on Friday, April 22 ... 19 athletes' efforts were rewarded. The club's three main perpetual awards for sportsmanship, best all-rounder and most outstanding performer were presented to Troy Edwards (sportsmanship), Jeffrey Boon (all-rounder) and Tony Novak (outstanding performer), for their efforts during the season. Presentations were also made in each group to athletes who had either excelled in a certain event or had participated well. Ben Webb and Codie Gibbins, both under 7s, were presented with Little Athletic Badges for participation. Other recipients were: under 8, sprints, Cassandra Boon; under 9, sprints Shane Cowan, shotput Justin Edwards, discus Samuel Benson; under 10, hurdles and long


jump Jeffrey Boon, discus Lee Donnollan, long jump Catherine Cossar; under 11, sprintsAndrea Thwaite, discus Matthew Anderson; under 12, middle distance Sparkle Furness, jumps Richard Benson; under 13, throws Brett Hallam; under 14, middle distance Andrew Prince, walks Troy Edwards; under 15, sprints Jason Sheard, throws Tony Novak, jumps Sandra Timms. It was the first time the Coast had held its athletics season in line with Brisbane clubs during the summer season. In past years the season was held during winter to avoid the summer's heat. Club spokesman Lorraine Coombs said the season had been successful with club days held under lights on Friday nights from 6.30pm-9.30pm.

The only disadvantage had been that other clubs in the Central Queensland region held their season during the winter months and Coast athletes had to travel to Maryborough for zone athletic days. Mrs Coombs said she hoped other clubs would change their system so Coast athletes could compete regularly to maintain high standards. The Coast finished with about 40 registered members. Some are now training for Townsville's annual championships to be held on June 11 and 12. Mrs Coombs said although this was now off-season, it was hoped a team could be sent to these titles. The new season will start about the second week in October and continues until April next year.

Bike riders promise thrills, spills CAPRICORN Dirt Riders Club is holding its Bicentennial Ambulance Charity Two-Day ATV Championship and Pony Express this weekend at Barlows Raceway. Activities start on Saturday, April 30, at midday with three hours of thrills and spills during Pony Express and ATV races. Club spokesman John Coutts said ATV stood for all terrain vehicles which includes trikes, quadracers and Odysseys. "There will be a flat track and motorcross track available to competitors," he said. The Pony Express was a team championship in which competitors follow arrows "through the scrub" for about half-an-hour before completing one lap. After one lap riders swap with partners who then have a turn at following the scrub

directions. Mr Coutts said there would also be a class for riders wanting to do this course by themselves without a partner. "Competitions continue on Sunday, with the same agenda as Sunday. However the programme starts at 10am," he said. "The competitions cater for peewees riding 50cc bikes to open riders on 500cc bikes. "Admission is free and competitors will be vying for 5600 to S700 prizes in trophies." Mr Coutts said it was hard to predict numbers for the race but expected about 50 riders to attend the 2-day championships. He said proceeds would aid Emu Park's QATB. "There is a SIO nomination fee for events but this is to cover trophies," he said. "Food and drink will be available and there's plenty of shade for families."

THIS weekend Yeppoon Rugby League plays its first home game against Brothers at Yeppoon Showground. The Coast players, despite having two weeks off without a game, should be ready to go because they have been training hard. "There shouldn't be any worries about their fitness ... the last fortnight has been spent under the guidance of Will Cordwell," publicity officer Glen Holland said. The first grade side should be at full strength with Ian Brazier recovering from his knee injury and all other players well rested. Coach John Rhodes will be drilling the message into his team about their mistake rate and the amount of start they have given to the opposition in recent games. "If the message gets-through and the players don't leave their game in the dressing shed then a victory over Brothers seems the only result."

Both sides are undefeated so far and this game will sort out how they will fare for the rest of the season. The early game will see Garry Horstman's U/19 side out to show Brothers it is a different side. The club is looking for a lot of Coast support for the first home game this year at Yeppoon Showground.

CONSUMER Affairs Minister Vince Lester has issued a Press release urging retailers and customers to ensure plastic carry bags were capable of holding the items placed inside them. He gave details of an incident where a consumer was sold several bottles of softdrinks which were placed in an "inadequate carry bag". "No sooner had the consumer left the store than the bottom of the bag burst dropping the bottles on the consumer's foot," he said. Mr Lester said this sort of incident could have serious consequences because the consumer may be injured and retailers may find themselves legally liable for damage caused as a result of flimsy carry bags. "It is ironic that flimsy carry bags are provided as a customer service and yet the bags can be the potential cause of customer injury," he said. He's quite right ... it is ironic. Stores provide bags for customers' convenience yet, if the bag breaks, there's the possibility that the store owner can cop legal action. Isn't that the same as a Scout or Guide getting sued because the little old lady they help across the road slips? Surely, when a shop provides a handy little bag it shouldn't face legal action. That's the trouble today, someone tries to be helpful and gets rebuffed either verbally or by a letter from a solicitor. The real problem is that the small business today can't win ... if a shopkeeper just handed you the goods you bought and said it was too dangerous to give you a plastic bag you would take your business elsewhere ... to a multi-national that can afford the legal action!!! • • • NOT everyone knows that Yeppoon's famous girls' school, St Ursula's, also used to teach boys. Aside from giving the boys a good education, it also gave them a past ... for instance, not all "old boys" like to recall today that they went to St Ursula's. Of course, children who know their fathers are old St Ursula's boys enjoy taking the mickey out of them when they get the chance and the weekend's 70th school anniversary gave one daughter the opportunity she had been looking for. Waiting until her father called her up on the two-way radio, she announced she had bought him a ticket to his school's reunion ... St Ursula's. Father's still wondering how many were listing in on the air, waves!!!
