VICIOUS DOG PACK KILLS HIGH SCHOOL SHEEP A VICIOUS dog pack killed two sheep, seriously injured a calf and savaged two heifers and four calves early Wednesday morning in the Yeppoon State High School's Agricultural paddock. The attack stunned the school. Many agricultural students are upset to think animals they had looked after had been killed by a marauding pack of dogs. Killed was the school's prize ram and a pregnant ewe. Ten other sheep and two lambs were untouched. One bull calf lost his testicles in the attack. One of the heiffers, which were protecting the calves, had its eye almost gouged out and the calves had their lips, ears and legs shredded. A Mapel Street resident was awakened about Sam and chased the dogs. Nick Corbet

said he had been woken by the calf's bellows and the noise of barking. He said there had been at least two dogs,._ maybe more, but they ran off when he gave chase, screaming. He also believes they were household dogs because one of the carcasses was still intact ... the dead sheep had been dragged to the ground but there had been no attempt to eat it. School agricultural teacher Adrian Evans asked dog owners to ensure their animals were tied up at night. He said it was obvious that if a dog returned home covered in blood it had been involved in some sort of an attack. He said it was irresponsible not to tie up animals or ensure they could not leave their yard. School principal John Gregg said he was

upset that dogs had been loose, got into the paddock and then killed animals the school used for educational purposes. The loss means more to the school in educational value than monetary terms. Mr Gregg said agricultural students had been hit hard by the loss. Mr Greggwas also concerned that now the pack had made one attack there could be a repeat. He is worried more injury might be done to the animals already hurt. The two heifers had been badly savaged bites and scratches clearly showing - while the calf wasn't expected to survive its injuries. Mr Gregg was also worried about the safety of people if these dogs were let run riot. His thoughts were echoed by Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer.

Sgt Tanzer said if the dogs had been caught on the property they could have been destroyed straight away. He said the owner had the right to protect his property.

Falling rocks at Bluff MOTORISTS are warned there has been evidence of falling rocks around the Bluff at Yeppoon. Main Roads Department and police said some youths have been seen in the area and warn that both the youths and motorists are endangered. Youths found in the area on the wrong side of the safety fence along the Bluff are putting themselves at risk and any rocks falling to the ground could cause a fatality.

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council expects to finish its 8100,000 water control weir at Water Park Creek next week. Work on the 60m weir started on May 9 and should be finished some time next week. Shire engineer Pat Murphy said it had cost about $100,000 to build. Mr Murphy said the water control weir would start operating next week. Located near the pump station, it monitors creek flows. "By monitoring the flow rates we will be able to use the information in future analysis," Mr Murphy said. "The weir is 250mm above the existing high tide mark." Mr Murphy said workers were also on schedule with the new water treatment plant. Work had progressed to the stage where most sections were nearly finished. "The sediment tank is about 80 per cent completed, building 90 per cent, lagoons 90 per cent and filters about 40 per cent finished," he said. "We aim to have the treatment plant fin; ished by about July." The treatment plant will provide the Capricorn Coast with clean water once it is in operation.

TURN over a new leaf and plant a tree for environment day, is the message Yeppoon's Bah'is are speading for World Environment Day on Sunday, June 5. Coast people will be celebrating the United Nations day in a number of ways. Coast Bah'is hope to encourage an awareness and respect for the environment by giving away trees tomorrow (Saturday, June 4) in Savemore Centre. A Bah'i spokesman said the free trees would be available from 9am in Savemore. "People need to care for the environment," she said. "Our theme for the Environment Day is turn over a new leaf and plant a tree."

To celebrate World Environment Day on Sunday, the Wildlife Preservation Society is holding a fair in Appleton Park, Yeppoon, from 1 lam to 4pm.

OPERATION Expo will be the subject of a meeting at Livingstone Shire Council on Monday morning ... and final plans will be put to council. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said he and CTDO secretary/manager Barry Lee, CTDO Expo committee member Iris Cameron, council's CIDO representative Cr Mike Prior, shire clerk Jim Brown and deputy chairman Cr Brian Dorey would meet over final arrangements. Offers of help have continued to pour into the council. Cr Bowen said 73 volunteers had phoned with offers to man the Expo stand and all who go will be outfitted with a free, colourful t-shirt. Shane Swaddling, who has a t-shirt business on Great Keppel Island, has offered to provide 100 free T-shirts for the volunteers. The council has to decide on a design for the Expo stand and Mr Swaddling will handle the screen printing. Kevin Logan has offered to take an exhibit of live coral from the Big Whale at Kinka Beach to the stand. He said it would be the only exhibit of live coral on show at Expo. In addition, Mr Logan has friends who know the Coast, and the Reef, who are prepared to give talks at Expo to interested visitors. There has also been an offer of a display of precious stones and of rock carvings. Cr Bowen said some of the bigger businesses on the Coast had phoned to ask how they could help. Monday's meeting would finalise plans and a report would be prepared for submission to council. He expects council to accept the report and give the go-ahead to the ambitious project to

â– ABOVE: Sergeant 2/c Peter McGregor (centre) chats with his wife Leonie (at right), son Sam (in his amis), and business community representative Judy Cooper (at left) during a farewell party at Yeppoon Golf Club on Tuesday. Sgt McGregor has been transfered to Rockhampton but will continue living on the Coast.

DECADE OF SERVICE TO TOWN AFTER a decade of service to the Capricorn Coast, Peter McGregor has been promoted from senior constable to Sergeant 2/c and transfered to Rockhampton Police Station. As a gesture of respect for his service, more than 100 business people and friends gathered at Yeppoon Golf Club on Monday night to farewell him and wish him good luck after 10'nd-a-half years at Yeppoon Police Station. Sgt McGregor said he arrived in Yeppoon as a constable in 1978 from Mackay where he had just spent 14 months. He was transferred to Mackay from Brisbane where he had been on mobile patrols for one-and-half years and his previous position was six months at Cooroy. Although he had been transferred, he and his family, (wife Leonie, five-year-old Sam and six-week-old Kirby) would continues living in Yeppoon. Sgt McGregor has been actively involved in the community through a variety of sports. From 1978 to 1984 he played for the Seagulls, (rugby League) during which time they won a premiership and were runners up. For the past few years he has been a keen indoor cricketer. At a recent State Police Indoor Cricket championships he was selected for the over-30 representative side which plays the National titles at Kawana Waters in August. Sgt McGregor was part of the Rockhamp-

ton district team which won the State titles. His other sporting interests include golf (21 handicap) and bowls, although he hasn't been able to play these sports for a while. Sgt McGregor said part of the reason for his 10-year stay in Yeppoon had been mainly due to the Police Department allowing families to get settled. He also put it down to the costs involved in transferring families. "Once they were being transferred nearly every two years, but they tend to let officers stay in the one place, especially if they like the area". Sgt McGregor said Yeppoon was a nice place to live and the people in it were friendly. After being in an area for so many years, Sgt Macgregor said he had made many friends. However, these friends, held no qualms or grudges if they were caught doing the wrong thing. "The people know right from wrong," he said. "They haven't held a grudge when I've had to do my job." In his 10 years at Yeppoon, Sgt McGregor has worked under three sergeants - Murray Neil, Brian Smart and present officer-incharge Ken Tanzer. While he won't be on patrol in Yeppoon, Sgt McGregor assured Coast people he would still be around ... only he will have a "lower profile". Coast people can expect his continued support of sport by actively playing indoor cricket and golf.

BUT NOW THERE'S THE CIIEW SUPPORT SCHEME. From June there will be a new system of collecting and distributing child maintenance payments to help overcome child poverty in many families. It will help make life less of a battle for a lot of children. This new scheme starts on June 1, 1988. It will apply to parents who separate on or after that date. It may also apply to parents who have never lived together and have a child born on or after June 1. People who are receiving a pension, benefit or education allowance and are caring for a child will be covered by the new scheme no matter when they separate. The scheme will be operated by the new Child Support Agency which is part of the Australian Taxation Office. The Agency will usually deduct payments from salaries or wages of parents who are required to pay maintenance. Self-employed parents will have to send maintenance payments directly to the Agency each month. Child Support payments will then be paid directly by the Department of Social Security to the nominated account of the parent who cares for the child. The new system is a fair one all round. And at last Australia's children won't be wearing the cost.

A 4.8km SEC PION of four-lane highway on the Yeppoon to Rockhampton Road will be open to traffic for the first time today. The opening will mark the completion of stage one, except for some minor tidying up. Main Roads Department district engineer Kevin Kerr said this week the completed section would start at the Bruce Highway ank continue for 4.8km along the Yeppoon/Rockhampton Road. Funded through the State Government's special loans fund, the first stage has cost about $3 million. This included service relocations and intersection work both at the Bruce Highway and Norman Roads. Mr Kerr said work started on stage one in October last year and only minor works had to be carried out. Stage two was started in March and is expected to finish about October. Mr Kerr said Main Roads appointed Cameron McNamara, consulting engineers, to undertake the design and project management of reconstruction. Two contracts were awarded for the work ... stage one to Abigroup and stage two to Cyril Golding Earthmoving. The second stage starts from the end of stage one and ends about 5.2km at Iron Pot Creek. Mr Kerr said this was roughly the boundary between Rockhampton and Livingstone Shire. Mr Kerr said the second stage was expected to cost about $2.3 million because there was little service relocation or other additional costs. When the four-lane highway opens today at 10am, trafficwill be diverted to the duplicate roadway. Motorists travelling from Rockhampton will be using the existing road and those going to Rockhampton will be using the new road.

Viet veterans holding AGM THE Capricorn Coast Vietnam Veterans' Legion is holding its first annual general meeting at the Returned Service League Hall on Monday, June 20. The Legion has also planned a dinner function for Saturday, June 25, with guest-ofhonour Mrs Harold from Rockhampton. Mrs Harold's son was killed in Vietnam and he is buried in the Yeppoon Cemetery. A legion spokesman said it was hoped the dinnerwould be the first of many. Any Vietnam Veteran, and partners, were welcome to attend. He was pleased that some RSL members would also attend the dinner. The dinner would be held in the Country Women's Association Yeppoon branch hall and members would then adjourn to the RSL for dancing. A band has been engaged to provide entertainment. The spokesman said it wouldn't be a formal dinner affair but in keeping with the legion's aims, it would be a social gathering where Veterans could meet and talk.

Schools' June 6 celebrations QUEENSLAND Day, Monday, June 6, will be celebrated in a number of ways across the State ... Capricorn Coast school students will be no different. Mt Chalmer's, Coowonga and Keppel Sands Primary Schools will be having a special games day, with competitions of a different kind. There will be billy boiling competitions and other activities to entertain students during the day. One special guest is Mabel Edmunds who will be adding her own special touch through painting. Other schools, including Yeppoon, Byfield, Emu Park, Farnborough and Sacred Heart Primary Schools and Secondary schools, Yeppoon State High, St Ursula's College and St Brendan's College will all have something to remind students about their history. It is important, in this, the Bicentennial year, that Queenslandcrs are aware there are five special State emblems. They include a flag, faunal and floral emblems, State badge and Coat-of-Arms. In this, the Bicentennial year, Queenslanders should be aware that there are five special State emblems. They include a flag, faunal and floral emblems, State badge and Coat-ofArms. Adoption of the State's emblems started in 1876 with the State flag. This was during a time when Queensland was a self-governing British colony with its own Navy. Queensland's then Governor was told by the British Admiralty it had to fly the blue ensign (blue flag with Union Jack) with the colony's badge. Queensland didn't have a State badge when this order was made. The State badge evolved as a result of this need for a badge to be included on the State Flag. Officially adopted on November 29,1876, the badge consists of a Roundel Argent, a Maltese Cross Azure surmounted with a Royal Crown, which has been altered since it was first adopted. The badge was first adopted in Queen Victoria's reign and following sovereigns have altered the heraldic interpretations. Queen Elizabeth last altered the badge in 1963. The badge was incorporated in the Queensland Coat-of-Arms. Neither can be used for commercial use. The Coat-of-Arms is the oldest Australian State Arms. Queen Victoria granted it to Queensland in 1893 and it was also the first Arms assigned to any British colony since Charles II gave Jamaica its Arms in 1661. The Arms symbolises the Queen's constitutional authority in the State. Primary Industry takes pride of place on the Arms. Rural Industry is represented by a sheaf of wheat, a bull's head and ram's head, as well as two stalks of sugar cane. The importance of mining is indicated by a column of gold rising from a heap of quartz. The State motto, Audax at Fidelis, means Bold, aye, and faithful too! In 1977, during the Queen's Jubilee year, the red deer (introduced from the royal herds near London) and brolga (one of Queensland's native birds) were added to the Coat-of-Arms. Both the Faunal and Floral emblems evolved this century. The floral emblem, a Cooktown Orchid, marked the State's centenary in 1959. The faunal emblem, the Koala, was officially adopted in 1971 after a newspaper poll showed the public strongly supported the Koala as its "animal ambassador".

ROCKHAMPTON college of Technical and Further Education (TAFE) is holding an open day on Saturday, June 11, in the Emu Park Cultural Centre from 10am to noon. The open day has been organised to give Emu Park people the chance to see what courses TAFE can offer and give their preferences to staff manning the display. Oganiser Val Wex said TAFE had held an open day three years ago. Declining numbers in classes had prompted this year's display. She said it was hoped residents would take advantage of the open day to see what was offered. Mrs Wex said it was also hoped people would tell them about any course they would like to see offered at Emu Park. There will be displays on microwave cooking, barbecue cooking with a difference, stretch sewing, pottery, bricklaying, art and German display. It is also expected there will be displays on applique, patchwork, personal grooming and deportment. Mrs Wex said course teachers would be available to answer questions. Dr Ken Burns has put together six courses ranging from stress management to an introduction to alternative medicines. Residents will have the opportunity to choose the courses they would like to see at Eniu Park. Mrs Wex said the whole idea of the open day was to give residents a chance to see what TAFE courses were available and for residents to say what they wanted. An enrolment day will be held about July 9 and, before a class can be organised, there has to be about eight to 10 interested people.

also," he said. "Wouldn't it be great if Yeppoon could stay as a place without parking meters and other restrictions just be residents and business people co-operating." Cr Webb said people intending short-term parking for visits to the surgery, CEB, chemist, banks and shops in Normanby Street needed "a better go, particularly at the surgery". "Please think of others and have the council avoid this wasteful use of your money'," he said. "There are suggestions around for increasing parking spaces in the end block, and the mall idea is still alive," he said. "To make a mall work, the council neeeds to acquire the CEB premises, and associated parking areas. It may be that other interests have this in mind, but parking is the key for a mall."

YEPPOON'S parking problems ha-.e been a major issue for many past councils ... and now Cr Maurie Webb has a proposal to end the parking woes at the beach end of town. Cr Webb wants people who intend parking all day to use the parking area provided next door to La Bamba nightclub on the corner of Hill and Queen Streets. Council could force all-day parking to use this area by introducing restricted parking areas throughout the shopping centre. It was inevitable that Livingstone Shire Council would have to allocate money in the next budget so that restricted parking in the main part of town could be introduced and he intended moving that this money be allocated. "Quite a number of years ago it was estimated that it would cost $10,000 for sign posting, and other needs, to get the parking restriction system up and running," Cr Webb said. "This of course does not account for the on-going cost of maintenance to the system." Cr Webb said motorists had to be made aware there was a large parking area near La Bamba nightclub and it was not much further to walk from there to shops in Hill and Normanby Streets than it was from a street parking bay." Also, since his return to council, he said he had regularlywatched people locking their cars in Hill and Normanby Street parking bays and taking off to work, denying later shoppers parking access in front of shops. "It may seem right for some shop owners and staff to avoid parking in front of their own place of work, but other shops have rights

CEB premises for auction A CAPRICORNIA Electricity Board spokesman said this week the Hill Street, Yeppoon, building and land was expected to be put up for public auction within the next six months. The spokesman said the building and land had become surplus CEB property since the McBean Street premises had been built. The property was held under three separate titles. The properties - 1153.4 square metres, 419.12 square metres and 596.9 square metres - arc alongside each other. The spokesman said the CEB was bound by regulations on the way it could sell the property. The Lands Department is first offered the property and if it does not want it, the land is then auctioned. The Lands Department has already been approached and it is expected the public auction will be held within the next six months. The McBean Street depot was built when the CEB found its Hill Street premises were subject to tidal surges. The CEB then built in a more secure area. The spokesman said the CEB would retain its present services for customers but plans as to how this will be carried out are still to be finalised.

Works programme closing soon THERE is only one month before the 1987/88 financial year ends and Livingstone Shire Council shire engineer Pat Murphy said only a handful of jobs needed to be completed in the Works Programme. He said council had recently had the opportunity to carry out works for the Main Roads Department. "These works involved widening By-field Road at Maryvale and overlaying a small section on the Byfield Road in the State Forest," he said. "It also included sealing shoulders on the Yeppoon-Emu Park Roads between Ross Creek and Taranganba Road (this work can also be used by cyclists); upgrading Tanby Road/Rockhampton-Emu Park Road; gravel re-sheeting Ogmore-Connection road and Apis Creek-Duaringa Road." Mr Murphy said work in all four divisions still needed to be completed. Division 1: sealing John and Hunter Streets; resealing Keppel Sands Streets; centre parking Pattison Street; schoOl access Mt Chalmers. Division 2: Golding Street; Geldard Street; Pacific Heights Road; Howes Road; Limestone Creek Road. Division 3: Glenprairie Road. Division 4: complete sealing Dawson Road; upgrade shoulders Etna Creek Road; preliminary work on Greenlake Road. Drainage work: complete the drainage works in Bell Park, Emu Park; start the Misfeld, Morgan, Hughes Streets scheme. Parks and gardens: playground equipment has been installed in Daniel Park and Keppel Sands; development of the area around the toilet block at Lammermoor Beach is to be completed. Water Supply and sewerage: the water

treatment plant project is progressing at an acceptable rate and it is expected that the completion date will be late July. The control weir construction at Water Park Creek is nearing completion with the wall and protection works finalised within the next few weeks. Stage II of the Emu Park Distribution Main is also nearly completed. Some delays were experienced due to large lengths of rock encountered in the trench. Council is now in the budget-making process where the 1988/89 Works Programme is being considered. Following the budget meeting the new works programme would then be available.

Choir prepares THE Sandpipers, a choir formed this year, is busily preparing for an appearance with the Rockhampton Youth Orchestra on Saturday, July 30. Led by conductor Jack Morgan, about 30 primary and high school students will present half the programme in conjunction with the Youth Orchestra. The group has already performed at Bicentennial celebrations and is also preparing for the Rockhampton Eisteddfod during August and September. The Sandpipers' theme on July 30 will be Muppets in Town. Their presentation of the Muppets and songs will be enjoyable feature for all the family. The concert will be held in St Ursula's College Hall and will also include a number of guest artists.

German Club for everyone CAPRICORN Coast now has a club which offers members something different ... the German Club provides a place to mix and enjoy each other's company. The club was formed last October. and already its 10 original members has grown into a membership of 50. What they offer is games. dancing, playing cards or a friendly chat with of backgrounds. people from a variety . Unlike the club's name it is not only for Germans, although some Germans attend the social gatherings. Members come from Gracemere, Rockhampton, Yeppoon and Emu Park. Socials are held once-a-month with committee meetings held separately. The club also rotates its meetings between the Coast and Rockhampton to give all members a chance to attend. The club is still looking for younger members to join, although people of all ages are welcome to functions. The latest idea is a dart competition on June 5 and 26. The competition will be held in the Yeppoon Town Hall. Drinks and food will be available and admission is 50 cents. For further information phone 39 3954 or 393746. Club president is Walter Fischer; vicepresident and publicity officer Hans Kleinert; secretary Graham Guht; treasurer Rick Holz; entertainment Erna Piec; committee members Merle Brazier, Kurt Renner, Dieter Homan and Lea Page.

Put Friday on Your Mind!

INDUSTRY, Small Business Communication and Technology minister, Rob Borbidge has accepted Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton's invitationlo visit Yeppoon on Friday June 17, to inspect the Yeppoon Industrial Estate, address the Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry and have discussions with Livingstone Shire Council regarding a Yeppoon heavy industry estate. "I was particularly anxious for the Minister to inspect the industrial estate and adjacent cement mixing plant which is a cause of resentment to residents in the area and a detriment to the development of the Industrial Estate," Mr Hinton said. Mr Borbidge will address the chamber of commerce on small business problems and what role the Small Business Corporation plays in advising small business people and potential small business owners on the pitfalls associated with small business. "Four out of 10 small businesses go broke in the first three years of operation due to inexperience, under capitalisation and high interest rates and most potential small business proprietors need sound advice before investing their capital."

FOR the past three weeks we have been holidaying at the Capricorn Coast in the area of Lammermoor Beach in the Yeppoon area. This Coast has many superb places to stay. This is just part of the beautiful beaches found in this area. We would like to express our feelings so that others can share too in the beauties of the Capricorn Coast as we have. We feel the area has so much to offer holidayites and the people can still experience the very relaxed feeling that generates from this place. There is just so much for everyone's taste. Such as the boat trip, to visit South Keppel Island to go boomnetting, coral viewing, scuba diving and swimming at the beach of South Keppel which has the loveliest white sand beach one could wish for. If you are a family person you can take the family picnicing to the Byfield Forest. This area is really beautiful and is only 34km north of Yeppoon. On the way you have the chance of seeing Australian flora and fauna in its natural environment. It was possible to see so much of Australia's fauna there. If you take a trip to Capricorn Iwasaki Resort wetlands. it's all there too, a really lovely trip to this resort

especially for overseas visitors to observe our fauna in its natural environment. The resort covers an area of 20,000 acres. We enjoyed visiting the pottery, shell and art galleries, the historical village of Ross' Run, and a highlight was a visit to Koorana Crocodile Farm. This was not only an eye opener, but so very educational, learning about their habits, when, before we joined the ranks of those who felt crocodiles had very little on their side but their skin. In our travels of the Queensland coast we have visited many underwater observatories, however the one at Kinka Beach between Yeppoon and Emu Park called the Big Whale would be one of the best. This is known as the touch aquarium and this was a first experience of doing just that, .to touch the living coral instead of just observing through a double layer of glass was a real experience. I could really go on and on but we feel this. • area has so much to offer the tourist. You have so much to be proud of in this area and the pride of present and past comes our in all the history shown through your historical museums and villages and the so well preserved buildings that just spell out the history of the place. There is only one way to see what we mean is to come to see foryourself, no amount ofwords on paper can sell an area. It's all here to enjoy as we have. - Shirley and Jim Eckford, Julia Creek.

COOBERRIE Park has again been sold, this time to a familywhich owns the Gracemere Newsagency. John and Patti Shannon plan to take over the running of Cooberrie Park on June 6. Mr Shannon said this week the place was "pretty run down" and they hoped to restore the park to former standards. They have no major plans at this stage and said there would be no dramatic changes. Cooberrie Park was sold to Dreamworld last year. That company transferred the koalas and some other animals to its enterprise late last year.

International field drawn to Coast ,or 8th annual hobby horse derby THE Eighth Annual Hobby Horse Derby. registered as a Bicentennial event, attracted an international field this year. Among the 64 jockeys were representatives from England. Ireland and New Zealand and va rious parts of Australia. The Derby, organised by the Keppel Coast Girl Guides LA, was a resounding success. It raised money for the association and created fun and entertainment for everyone. Committee chairman Gwen McGregor was delighted with the results and announced on Tuesday that the day had cleared more than 54000. "It was only possible because of the tremendous community spirit that exists here on the Coast and I take this opportunity to thank all who participated in any way," she said. Organisers thanked Brian Gough. Tom Osborne, Glynn Wyeth, Ned Warren, Bob Jeacocke and Lois Bayliss, who worked hard throughout the morning even though they have no-one in guides. "We also thank Also, Yeppoon Fresh Fruit and Veges, who donated a fruit and vegetable tray for a raffle, but were inadvertently left off previous publicity." The morning dawned bright and beautiful and locals turned out in force to support the event. Beaman Park was again transformed into a colourful race track ... the blaze of colour and the Rockhampton Jazz Society Big Band made the day light up. In addition to the racing and music, this year's event had an Australiana apron parade and a parade of guide uniforms through the years. The event was also chosen for the official declaration of the Capri--trn Coast as a Tie-Free Zone, much to the amuse;nt of all present.. Racing started with the first Novice Handicap. Bill Cumming switched stables to ride Registered Rider for Aussie Hot Bread, and was too experienced for Cooee Flyer (Cooee Bay Store) and Travel-White (Whites Tourist Services). Radish (Yeppoon State School) sought some attention from the Galloping Pharmacist (Stewart and Brumm Chemists) and the Lions Roar(ed) in vain. The 2 y.o. Stakes saw the New Zealand-bred Mary's Mount (St Brendan's College) upset early favorite BP Yeppoon. with Disco Duck (Commonwealth Bank) finishing strongly. The first division of the Maiden Handicap was a classy debut for Spock, ridden by Captain Kirk (Yeppoon High School). She and Telstar (Denise Campbell) were called upon to give an encore in the final. Rails (Railway Hotel) raced gallantly, despite the attention of the vet and farrier prior to the start. Pandoin (Tammy Dean) and Triumphant Rose (Tanya Benson) were as pretty as princesses. The first division w.f.a. brought out the heavyweights. A tradesman-like performance by Cabinet

Maker (Yeppoon Kitchens) gave him a Smashing Time (Yeppoon Glass and Tiles), with Keppel the Bay (Keppel Bay Motors) third. At 10am the Rockhampton Jazz Society Big Band joined the fray. The rotunda echoed to the strains and the tempo of activity increased. The first Improvers Handicap introduced England's Mark Parry to Hobby Horse racing. Although more accustoned to a football scrum. he brought his mount Seafood and Eat it 'out of the Clouds' to force a dead-heat with Squash'em (Capricorn Coast Squash Club). Town Crier (Don Knowles) appeared in traditional costume to proclaim the Capricorn Coast a Tie Free Zone. This ceremony, to recognise the arrival in Keppel Bay of Captain James Cook. was witnessed by Member for Capricornia Keith Wright. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton and Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen. Official manipulator of the shears Laurie Killeen ceremonioutly cut their ties. The miniature train (donated by John Dowie and driven by Phillip Cranny) took them on a triumphant tour of the Beaman Park Coursing Track. Before the next race. the Australiana Apron Parade delighted the crowd. A variety of styles and designs made an attractive display and were a credit to the young girls who made and paraded them. St Ursula's College entrant. Trinian's Terror, put fear into the hearts of her rivals and won the second division of the Maiden Handicap. Scope's Hope (Scope Club) finished on strongly and the Flying Emu (Emu Eatery) flashed home. Boxer (The Great Aussie Box) and Pink Hibiscus (Denny's Icecream Parlour) were attractively attired for the big occasion. A parade of guide uniforms of earlier years was another feature event this year. The assorted uniforms were sent from Brisbane especially for the bicentennial event and were paraded by the guides. The 3 y.o. Classic saw another English import make his Hobby Horse racing debut. Astride Strand Turn out from the Strand Hotel, he just got up in a close one from Regal Rocket. a crusty performer brought all the way from Regal Bakery in Rockhampton. Third place went to Major's Revenge (Army Sporting Unit). and an eye-catching performance was given by Don Knowles. riding Darren's Donkey from the Westpac Bank. In the next race Second Hand Sally (Yeppoon Trading) hung on long enough. Sparky (Yeppoon Auto Electrics) showed fine tuning to hold third place. John Christensen tried had on Rotary's Revenge (Yeppoon Rotary Club). but the track was a hit longer than he had trained for. The guest rider on La Bamba (John Couani. recentlyout of Sydney) just wanted to dance with somebody. Didi-mau (Capricorn Coast Vietnam Veterans Legion) was a colourful and classy performer. The 2nd Improvers Handicap brought the last of the fillies to the starter. There was an early sensation when the vet inspected Super Smile (Dental Protection Association) and insisted on her being withdrawn from the race. Irish import Mary Mackin. riding Irish Miss(t) for St Brendan's College. showed plenty of class to win this one convincingly from Tinnic Linne (Lyn Murphy). Lioness Lizzie (Yeppoon Lioness Club) received assistance and was disqualified. to give third to New Horizon Cruises. Heat 10 brought Denis Hinton to the microphone to call his race ... Denis Hinton Invitational Stakes. Be prepared (Sacred Heart School) showed great skill to avoid the attention of Phantom Mags (Capricorn Newsagency). Banana Split (Sandy's Cafe) was not so fortunate. but did well to recover and claim second. The Bunkers (Yeppoon Golf Club) avoided the hazard and came in third. Hunkey Dorey (Brian Dorey) chose the wrong surface for his training workouts and Phantom Mags was disqualified four times in one race. The cup auction of finalists established early favouritism for Squash'em with all contestants being snapped up by eager buyers. A furtherfeature was the awarding of bicentennial certificates. Livingstone Shire Bicentennial Committee president Cr Brian Dorey. made the following presentations: Hobby Horse Derby Cup and Powder Puff Derby winners received medallions: heat winners and major officials. certificates: Keppel Coast Girl Guides. framed bicentennial certificate. The complete list of winnerswill be published next week.

i' Special


SATURDAY night is your last chance to enjoy Yeppoon Choral Society's Orpheus in the Underworld. From remarks passed this week the production is one of the society's best in its more than 20 year history. Tickets are available at Yeppoon Town Hall door before 7.45pm if you haven't already booked at Stewart and Brumm Chemists. The town hall can be cold at this time of the year, but the laughs generated by the cast will keep you warm and cosy ... but if you still feel the cold, take a blanket or warm jacket. But don't miss the show, they won't be presenting it again for a while. *** NURSING Mothers meeting is on Thursday, June 9 at 9.30am, 19 Tucker Street. The topic is Breastfeeding in the precious weeks. All mothers whether breastfeeding or not are welcome to go along. *** I haven't been worried as my sons grow taller than me, it hasn't made me feel old and bowed. This month we are having a countdown, I should say, Rhodes is having a countdown. He is 18 in so many days and has informed me he can do anything he likes when he reaches adulthood. I wish that were true ... his own ironing, feeding, worries, decisions. The feeling is delight he has reached that age, his father is surprised.

WOULD you like to meet new friends? Join the German Australian Club. It has something for everyone ... golf, chess, German language, folkdancing, card games, shooters (air rifle only) and more. Phone 39 3746 for more information. *** ANYONE for tennis at Emu Park? Victory Tennis Club has Monday social club games at 10am for members and Friday games for everyone at 7pm. Contact Lexie Bennett, 33 6559 if you want to join or just play. The courts, next to Bell Park, can be hired by individuals or groups ... go across to Millroys Store, they have all the information, 39 6280. *** IMPROVE your public speaking skills and learn how to conduct an effective meeting at Toastmasters every first and third Wednesday, Yeppoon CWA Hall, 7.30pm.

Junior Swans enjoy their YEPPOON junior Australian Rules Football Club under 1 Is football is called Aussie Footy and the name of the game is participation. Coach Col Jamieson congratulated the boys on their great game and organisers thank Bryan Munn for umpiring. All the boys enjoyed their game and showed good ball skills, improving each week. Best players were S Broadhurst, C Blake, N Fraser, O Battersby, C Barnes and S Jamieson. A reminder from the coach ... training is now on Thursdays 4pm for U/Ils. Under 13s were run away winners from Wandal Yeppoon 8-13-61 to Wandal no score. In the first quarter Shane Campbell played well on the wing. Shane Franke gave plenty of drive from the centre, particularly in the second quarter. Luke Ward rucked well and Steven Horstman, as his rover, picked up the ball well, getting it through to other good players in Brad Hirning full forward. Peter Dean also did an excellent job on the wing. Under 15s Yeppoon had a great game wirt, ningwell from Wanda113-15-39 to 5-9-39. They played well and it was a great team effort. Best player on the ground went to Graham Pye who is improving each week in the ruck. Other good players were Shaun Pedderwood (rover), Dale Perrin (nick-rover), Darren Caddy (full forward), David Liddell (centre half back) and Shane Tickner (centre half forward). Goal kickers: Darren Caddy six, J Geier and S Pedderwood two each, Dale Perrin, P J Rayner and Nathan Wiggington one each. Coach Lance Lawer and team manager Marg Deurloo and U/15s thank the U/13s who made up the team. Congratulations to the under 15 boys who have been chosen in the squad to go away to represent Central Queensland. They are Dale Wetzler, Darren Caddy, David Liddell, Adrian Deurloo and reserve Jason Geier. To help raise their finance to go away these boys are selling raffle tickets.

The U/17s played four quarters of football and completely outclassed their opposition 257 to no score. "I think 12 of the boys kicked goals, five to Rod Chapman and four to D Ward," publicity officer Yvonne Motton said. Best players were Trent Thompson (with some brilliant run through from the back line), Steven Bird, Rod Chapman, Adam Belot and Danny Harris (just returned). All training is now onTu esday and Thursday nights. Next game is U/11 and U/17 against Brothers at Victoria Park and under 15s at Stenlake Park at 12.45pm. One bus only leaving Yeppoon Showground at 11.30am. Under 11 will play at 1pm followed by under 17s at 2.30pm.

Brothers defeat Senior Swans THE Senior Swanswent down to Brothers in the last quarter on the weekend, Brothers 1115-81 to Yeppoon 9-11-65. Although Swans had several vital players missing the team did a good job of covering these deficiencies until the last quarter. Mark Taylor did a sterling job in the ruck but the team missed Ben. By taking Sparrow out of the backline that line was weakened. Brett Odell played well after returning from injur) (cracked ribs). Gary Fraser was missing from the full forward position and was replaced by Bryan Munn, thus we lost drive from the centre. Rob Gardner and Mark Wigginton both played well up forward, but could only notch three goals between them. Goal kickers were B Munn two, R Gardner two, J Jamieson two, M Wigginton, Brett Odell and John Heathcote one each. Mike Wozniak, Steve Burns and Brett Motton played consistently in the backline but could not keep Mark Davis, Gerald Hickey and Brett Plane out. Several U/17s played and showed talent which will strengthen Swans in the future. Best players: M Taylor (won the mug), J Blake (Pacific dinner for two), M Wigginton, R Gardner, B Odell and G Boyd. "Yeppoon reserves, it was pleasing to field a full team, but could we see more at training on Tuesday or Thursday nights," the publcicity officer said. "The boys were beaten, but definitely not disgraced, and with more training together could prove a much more capable side." Col Jamieson nicked well, planning most knockouts down, but the Coast rovers couldn't take advantage to get drive forward. Final scores: Brothers 9-9-63 to Yeppoon 66-42. Goal kickers: D Mackin and Greg Bain two each, J Widdowson and R Frew one each. Best players: R Frew (the mug); J Widdowson (Pacific dinner for two) and Col Jamieson.

* By Darren Goody FORMER French Test fullback Jean-Philippe Pougeau went on a five try scoring spree to lift Yeppoon reserve rugby league grade to a 34 point win over Norths last Sunday. Jean-Philippe Pougeau started his 1988 season in fine form registering Yeppoon's first try. He injected himself into the back-line and had too much pace for the opposition's cover defence. Yeppoon's second try was also scored by Jean-Philippe. The French fullback stepped around a dumbfounded Norths fullback to dive over untouched. Pivot Glen 'Dutchie' Holland was controlling all the moves. Holland had a fine game, throwing long cut-out passes and was continually in support. In the 25th minute prop Steve Williams burst onto an inside pass to register a well deserved try. Seven minutes later Pougeau was in again. Yeppoon's backline was keeping the ball alive until Don Cameron popped a short pass to Pougeau and he went over untouched. Norths rallied early in the second half to score its first try. Yeppoon worked back into Norths territory. Again it was the flying

Frenchman who dived on the loose ball in Norths goal after a clever kick through by Yeppoon. Yeppoon started running forwards in the back-line with great success. John Webb carried three Norths players over the line. Webb scored his first try after combining with the back-line. After the injury of Holland, Geoff Tanzer took over the role as pivot and play-maker. From a tap on Norths try line Tanzer ran towards the Yeppoon backs drawing the defence. Tanzer then flicked a clever inside pass to a steaming Gil Dyett who struggled over for a try. It seemed fitting that Jean-Philippe Pougeau scored Yeppoon's final try. Five-eight Graham White delayed his pass long enough to put Pougeau into the gap and he again sprinted over for an outstanding try. Norths scored a complimentary try on full time to take the final score Yeppoon 46 to Norths 12. Man of the match was Jean-Philippe Pougeau. Yeppoon has a chance to make a clean sweep of the three matches against Black-water Centrals at Yeppoon Showground on Sunday, June 5.

COAST basketball reached the peak of the summer season with the juniors and A grade finals last Monday evening. Emu Park homes were deserted at 5pm when the junior teams Devils and Demons confronted each other in an earnest and enthusiastic contest for the season's crown. Favourites,Devils bolted to a first half lead spearheaded by Matthew Coyle and Ryan Miller after Wesley Titmash was in early foul trouble. Demons forwards Vashua Harris and Matthew Wex couldn't match the Devils who cut through a medicare first half defence. Wesley's departure from the court amounted the start of a scoring spree by Demons, Scott Ducan who had been concentrating on first half defence. Devils coach Alan Thomas couldn't seem to produce a combination to neutralise Scott with his stronger defence concentrating on the first half dangers and this combined with agressive defence by Demons particularly from Seaona Roberts in mid-court and Vashua Harris in the key found the scores equal at full time. Despite having the majority of the fouls, Demons coach Megan Andersen managed to keep player fouls spread more evenly over her players so when in extra time Matthew Coyle joined Wesley and Ryan on the bench at the referee's invitation Devils faced two minutes of play with only four players despite some never say die efforts from Mara Coulter and Melissa Cullen. Demons made good use of the advantage to finish with a two basket lead. Emu Park parents created a good atmosphere with encouragement being given to all players. A women also gave a thrilling final as centres Cathy Rosenthal (Seagulls - 24) and Samantha Willoughby (Billabongs-26) set about a virtual personal scoring competition. Fed plenty of ball in good position by Sue Stevensen, the experienced combination with Samantha kept the score board going despite some unforced errors. Cathy gave Billabongs too much possession with some forced second half shotswhich failed to go in unaccountably with only four minutes to go and a 10t point lead, Billabongs, instead of running the clock down, reverted to an outside shot game squandering possession to Seagulls and almost allowing them to grab back the game in the final seconds. The men's game started with Coasters looking far stronger than Saintswho missed scoring opportunities while Coasters amazed spectators by excellent passing in the key, making light work of what has always been a weak Saints line and it seems Coasters have taken a whole season to use it. Saints pressed on with their running game and fast breaker almost guaranteed them a basket of any defensive rebound, so despite having the majority of the possession Coasters found themselves down one point at half time. In the second half it was hard to pick what Coasters was doing wrong. Russell Frew hit some sweet outside shots, Jim Shackleton and Graeme Orr used all their chances and Peter Sherrif scored off offensive rebounds, but it

In the background Seagull's Megan Anderson ( 10)waits anxiously forthe outcome. was the return to form of Anthony (Moose) Laycock that stole the game from CoaSters. Twenty-three points in the back half for Laycock set a heart breaking pace and with Steve Stafford and Robert (Carrot) Campbell in support there didn't seem to be any answer to close the gap on Saints after a early short second half lapse. Next season promises even greater heights for the major season but now all eyes turn to the U/14 and U/16 representitive teams off to the State Titles in Rockhampton and Mackay. The ladies can keep their hand in with a warm up match against Rockhampton U/16 at the Rockets game in Rockhampton on Friday, June 3. Juniors: Demons d Devils 32-28; Billabongs d Seagulls 51-47; Saints d Coasters 69-60. Intermediates and B grade report next week.

Tanzer, Trimms men of match * By Darren Goody. THE under 19s Yeppoon Rugby League team nearly caused the upset of the season against Norths at Rockhampton last Sunday. All players had a great game but it was Anthony Tanzer and Matthew Trimms who received the men of the match award. Anthony Tanzer scored Yeppoon's first point. He dived over for a try out wide after a busting break by Charlie Mackie. Yeppoon's defense was holding out Norths to the extent that they were only trailing 12-4 at half time. In the second half Yeppoon finally capitalised on breaks. Peter Shuttleton and Terry Horton both scored tries to put Yeppoon back into the match with some chance. At one stage the score was 20-20 with Yeppoon's defence remaining solid until Norths slipped away down the blind side. Yeppoon were caught napping and Norths sealed the game with a try in the corner. MatthewTrimms scored a try with minutes to go but it was all over. Final score Norths 26 to Yeppoon 20.


COAST bloke phoned a relative in the South this week to say hello for the first time in ages. During the conversation, he remarked that while his phone could make the relative's phone ring, just by punching a few digits ....the same could occur if the relative punched some digits on her phone and wanted to speak to him. Such subtlety went way above her head ...'"that would run up my phone bill," she said. Anyway, the call was drawing to a close when the woman remarked that, actually, he might be hearing from her soon: "I've got a new job and I should be able to phone you regularly." The bloke thought about this for a minute and said she was taking a risk using a company phone and he'd rather pay for the calls himself. Anyway, she came back with an reply that made him think ... "this place has a Commodore phone and when you make a call, the number comes up in a display on the front of the phone," she said. "That means if someone walks in while I'm talking to you, they will see the 079 code and know I'm on STD. But I think I've worked out how to beat it. If I ring you, your number will come up in the window then I'll put you on 'hold' ... then, if I dial a local number, it will come up in the window. I think I should then be able to put that number on hold and come back to you andwe can talk as long aswe like". The bloke thought about this for a minute ... for one thing, his relative is not only planning to use her boss' money to ring him, but planning it in such a devious manner she has revealed a whole new side to her character he never thought existed. For a starter, this woman would never pinch 810 from the petty cash tin ... that would be stealing. She would never pick up anything in the office and take it , home ... that would also be stealing. But she can muse away over an idea to knock off heaps and heaps of dollars in STD phone calls and not only think herself clever, but not bat an eyelid. What worries him is that he was thinking of installing new phones in his office ... and now he' s wondering!!! • • • YEPPOON resident, looking flushed, dropped into Mirror office Tuesday night to say he heard everything. Seems the house he's renting has had toilet problems "nasties and everything else floating around and gurgling in places they shouldn't be". He phoned the landlord and asked for a plumber to be sent straight away. No plumber arrived ... but "messages" kept appearing in the toilet bowl. Another call was made calling for a plumber. This time, tenant was told he was a professional man with a degree and he should know how to fix the problem. Man was bluffed ... his wife wasn't; she let fly with a few choice words and demanded that a plumber be sent around straight away. Short time passed ... there's a knock on the door. Wife opens door with husband bringing up the rear and there, timidly holding up a bottle, is a young girl saying "this" should fix the problem. "This," was a bottle of Drano. Husband, apparently saw the funny side of it ... wife didn't. She'd already tried that sort of solution. It only took one more phone call, from the wife, to have a plumber call. The problem has been sorted out ... but it took a backhoe and a big hole in the garden. The husband is still chuckling about the "plumber" arriving in a
