A ROAD reconstruction scheme to straighten out the dangerous bend at the intersection of Farnborough Road and Hinz Avenue, adjacent to Farnborough State School, will be implemented toward the end of the 1988/89 financial year. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton was told by Deputy Premier Bill Gunn that following Mr Hinton's representations the route had been resurveyed and finance approved. Mr Hinton said the Main Roads Department estimated the cost at $250,000. "Livingstone Shire Council told Mr Gunn of its support for the job's priority and land resumption procedures will start shortly," Mr Hinton said. "I am delighted with the priority given the work because the road is dangerous to both vehicles and children who are at risk from traffic travelling from the Byfield direction. The road project will be about one kilometre in length." This week, a representative from concerned people wanting the road changed, said plans were progressing well. "Commitments have been given and we will now be working to make sure these commitments are honoured," he said.

KEPPEL SANDS OFFERS SMORGASBORD OF FUN KEPPEL Sands will be offering a smorgasbord of activities during its Family FunFestival on Sunday, June 12 from 10am to 5pm. The funfestival replaces Krabtastic which was transferred to Rockhampton this year. Organisers said Krabtastic would return next year but the funfestival had been organised so people would still know something was on. When Keppel Sands people realised Krabtastic was transferred, the Bush Fire Bri-

gade, Coastguard and Keppel Sands State School Parents and Citizens Association banded together to organise a festival in lieu of Krabtastic. The Family FunFestival was the result and it should a fun-filled day featuring crab and toad races. There will also be an auction, barbecue, competitions, novelty events, food stalls, refreshment booth and street stalls. For the children there's a merry-go-round,

Yeppoon Show to be `compact and intimate'


JAMES STREET In Downtown •

QUEENSLAND Health Minister Leisha Harvey will visit the Capricorn Coast on Friday, July 1 to meet community representatives interested in the provision of a nursing home and for a dinner function with the Livingstone Shire Council. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton, who arranged the visit following a visit from Health Department officials in January, said Mrs Harvey's visit would not be "just another talk fest about nursing homes". "It will be very positive for the Coast. Mrs Harvey will inspect Yeppoon Hospital and the Community Health Centre, then meet community representatives at Livingstone Shire Chambers to discuss aged care requirements on the Coast and nursing home proposals," Mr Hinton said. Minister Harvey will have morning tea with the QCWA Yeppoon Branch, inspect the Yeppoon-Emu Park Ambulance to have talks with the committee on ambulance funding and then go to Rockhampton for afternoon engagements.

THE Coast will be a hive of activity over the Queen's birthday weekend with three major functions ... the 33rd Annual Yeppoon Show, Keppel Sands' Family Funfestival and the Yeppoon Little Theatre's sixth Festival of Drama. It will be an activity-packed weekend for families to enjoy. And Tonight (Friday), to get baby-boomers into the mood, ex-Easybeats lead singer Stevie Wright will rock at La Bamba. Stevie Wright is the man who put Friday on everyone's mind with his international hit Friday on My Mind The Easybeats were an Australian smashhit group in the '60s when they were among the first of the Down-Undergroups which took the world by storm with a string of hit records that competed against the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Liverpool sound.

Long weekend features the annual Show Funfestival, drama festival plus 'Rocker

THE 33rd Annual Bicentennial Yeppoon and District Agricultural Show will be compact and intimate ... a great place to take the family. Society president Cr Brian Dorey said the Yeppoon Show was compact enough to give families a look at all the displays and action without having to walk great distances. He said it would be the first time a night programme, and no Monday programme, would be offered. The two-day show will also feature the Cobb & Co Coach now travelling around Australia. Cr Dorey said the coach would arrive Saturday morning and be available all day for rides. "The driver can choose any route he likes because the coach is classed as a vehicle," he said. The official party, including Federal Member for Capricornia Keith Wright, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton, Livingstone Shire Council chairman Cr John Bowen and show president Cr Brian Dorey, would be carried by coach to centre ring during the opening ceremony. Cr Dorey said that during the night programme, a cross-cut versus chainsaw competition would be held. "This competition was last held in 1985 when a New Zealand cross-cut team challenged a chainsaw team," he said. "The New Zealanders won the competition. "There is also a 750mm standing wood-

COAST RESIDENT RECEIVES MEDAL FROM WAR CAPRICORN Coast resident Joe McIntyre will remember the Bicentennial year as the year Greek Deputy Prime Minister, and Minister of National Defence, loannis Haralambopoulas, presented him with a medallion he earned 47 years ago. In a specially prepared ceremony on Greek National Day, May 22, Mr Harlambopoulas presented Mr McIntyre, and about 30 other 6th Division AIF members (four wives accepted the medals on behalf of their husbands), with medals earned during the 1940-41 campaign. Mr McIntyre said his division had been sent to help Greece defend itself from invasion. Six weeks after arriving in Greece the division was evacuated. He said he applied for the medal about 12 months ago after some friends had received a medal from the Greek Government for service during 1940-41. That application was answered this year

and a presentation date was arranged. The letter, sent on May 11, told Mr McIntyre he would be presented with the medal on May 22, at Expo, by Mr Harlambopoulas, the Deputy Prime Minister of Greece. "It came as a complete surprise to hear about the presentation so long after making the application," he said. "Not only was it a surprise but also we didn't have much time between receiving the first letter, getting the invitation, and leaving for Brisbane." Mr McIntyre and his wife, Lorna, said the presentation ceremony had been "great". Mrs McIntyre said all those receiving medals were well looked after. The medal is about 3cm by 3cm and is attached to a blue and white ribbon (Greek colours). Inscribed on one side arc the towns involved - Epirus, Albania, Macedonia, Thraki and Crete - and on the other is a picture of a goddess and a laurel. A diploma also accompanied the medal. The diploma stated what areas were involved and a message ... "The very best omen is to defend the country". Present at the ceremony was Brisbane Lord Mayor Sally-Anne Atkinson, Expo chairman Dr Llew Edwards and Deputy Premier Bill Gunn. Mr McIntyre thinks he was the only Central Queenslander at the ceremony. An appli-

A job for life...with small catch THE Bureau of Meteorology is offering some lucky Capricorn Coast resident a lifetime job, but there's a catch ... there's no pay. The job involves taking weather observations. The Coast has been without weather readings ever since the Bureau of Meteorology closed its station at the Yeppoon Post Office eight months ago. The station, which was behind the Yeppoon Post Office, took a variety of observations, including wind speed, wind direction, maximum and minimum temperatures, cloud type and amounts, pressures, humidity and rainfall. Readings, which went back about 90 years, stopped last year. Rainfall readings, being taken at Barmaryee, are now the only ones taken. The bureau's facilities officer-in-charge Bryan Davies said this week the office had to be closed because it didn't meet bureau needs.

Mr Davies said a close look at the Yeppoon.'“ station's operations and costs resulted in it „ being closed down. The bureau didn't like closing stations but financial constraints has forced them to take action. He said people taking rainfall readings did not get paid but stations like the former one at Yeppoon was a paid position. "We are a free service and funding is provided through tax," he said. "If more money was allocated to meteorolog it could have been possible to continue running a station like Yeppoon's." Mr Davies said the location, and number of readings taken, at Yeppoon had contributed to the station's closure. "A station needs to be in an open place, open to all the elements," he said. "Readings need to be taken about seven times every day of the week. We have enough equipment to set up someone but no money to pay them. Any interested person would have to be prepared for a life-time job with no pay."

Calf bellows in terror as two pig dogs savage it in Hughes Street MARAUDING dogs have struck again ... this time it was a family pet calf. The attack comes one week after dogs savaged and killed animals kept in Yeppoon High School's Agricultural paddock. Hughes Street resident Von Rogan said the family's pet calf had been attacked by two pig dogs at 7am on Saturday. They raced to the calf's rescue when they heard it bellowing in terror. Mrs Rogan said the calf was locked in its paddock but the two pig dogs, one with white markings and the other with white and brown markings, had broken the steel gate and were attacking its ears. She said one dog was hit with a stone as it • "

raced away but nothing could be done to catch the animals. "It was lucky the calf retreated to the fence closest to the house," she said. "We have a fairly large paddock and the calf could have been savaged more had it gone to any section other than near the house." Mrs Rogan said it was important dogs were locked up, or restrained, at nights. She said if it was the same dogs involved in Yeppoon High's attack they had covered a considerable distance ... from Rawlings Street to Hughes Street. Agricultural students were this week still nursing injured calves while the loss of their prize ram, and a pregnant ewe, is still felt.

First of Coast's Expo volunteers will man stall at end of month THE Capricorn Coast's first Expo volunteers leave here at the end of this month to woo State, national and international visitors. Shire chairman CrJohn Bowen said six volunteers would be the vanguard of what looks like being a 100-strong force of Coast ambassadors who will, in rotation, man an Expo stall until the end of October. The Coast volunteers will be promoting the whole of Livingstone Shire as well as the whole Capricorn region. Cr Bowen said he hoped to have slices of pineapple available on the stand for overseas visitors to taste. This would give many international visitors an idea of the climate because they realised pineapples were a tropical crop. In addition, the Coast volunteers would have literature on the beef industry. "The beef industry is one of the biggest money earners in Livingstone Shire," Cr Bowen said on Wednesday. "Cattle grazing is not only a major industry, it is also a major land use in division three," he said. "We looked at what the Coast, the shire and the region has to offer visitors and it became obvious that beef is well to the forefront. "Taking a long-term view, many Asian visitors are only accustomed to fish as their staple

New TAB branch A TAB branch opened at the Pine Beach Hotel at Emu Park on Tuesday. Hotel manager Steve Anderson said the TAB had opened an agency to replace the one which closed in the Seaside Plaza arcade.

protein diet. These countries quite often have barriers against beef imports from other countries, as well as Australia. "If we can entice these people to the Capricorn region and they can discover for themselves that this area is one of the largest cattlegrowing regions in the world they may acquire a taste for meat ... a product we take so much for granted. "In the long-term, they may well pressure their politicians at home to cut barriers to allow our product onto their tables." Cr Bowen said pineaples were a Coast commodity that had to be promoted at Expo. Pineapples are part of the Expo promotion and this area grows them. "No international visitor should leave Expo without first tasting this delicacy," he said. He said it looked as if the council would face a total bill for fares and accommodation of about S5000 for the Expo promotion ... but this amount could be reduced by approaches he had received from a couple of Coast businesses that had offered cash because they could not afford to donate time. He said the time that volunteers had already offered as a donation was alreadyworth tens of thousands of dollars. "By the time this promotion ends we may well find we have mmounted a million-dollar promotion for just a few thousand," he said. There was no plan to produce a special brochure although any group or individual was welcome to provide their own brochures for the volunteers to hand out. Volunteers should have all been interviewed within the next 10 days and the first group will be announced when travel times and datesare co-ordinated.

Capricorn Iwasaki Resort says no problems with beach access HEAVY traffic on Farnborough Beach on Sunday in front of the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort made a claim to the Capricorn Coast Mirror impossible to substantiate. The Mirror was phoned on Sunday by a Coast real estate agent who said a couple had told him they had been ordered off the beach in front of the resort. The agent said he did not disbelieve the couple but, at the same time, could not believe

what he was being told. He said it was well known that the beach was freely available to everyone. The Mirror spoke to the couple who said they had been walking on the beach near the water's edge when two Japanese had told them it was a private beach and they should leave. Mirror owners John and Suzy Watson then drove to the resort and parked in the area set aside for public beach access. There were two resort vehicles on the beach with a party of Japanese talking and looking at the view. They made no attempt to approach or speak to us. We stayed there for about an hour photographing some of the dozen or so private vehicles driving along the beach past the resort, and a couple walking on the beach. There were other couples further along the beach and someone walking a horse. This week, assistant resort manager Yukuo Yoshihara (who has had a long association with the Coast because he previously accompanied resort owner Yohachiro Iwasaki as interpreter) was told of the allegation. He said he would speak to all Japanese staff to see if anyone had approached the couple. He phoned back an hour later to say all Japanese staff denied ordering anyone off the beach. "I find it difficult to believe the story because our Japanese staff do not speak English well enough to even speak to Australians, let alone order them off the beach," Mr Yoshihara said. He said the resort had no special rights to the beach and did not try to claim them. "Beaches all over the world are owned by the Nation and they are for everyone," he said. "We have provided public access to the beach and special facilities so that everyone will feel welcome to visit here. "The -resort has built a road, provided a large parking area, a brick amenities building, a walkway to the beach and sheltered picnic tables on the beach. "These are available, free, to anyone who cares to visit. These facilities are designed to attract people so that theywill perhaps call in at — the resort and have a cup of coffee or lunch. "We have spent a lot of money trying to attract people ... we are not trying to keep people away."

Mud and rock slide at the Bluff closes 2 lanes of new highway A LANDSLIDE at the Bluff on Farnborough Road on the weekend has meant the two outward bound lanes on the new four-lane highway have been closed for the past week. Main Roads district engineer Key Kerr said this week the road would be closed until the bluff stabilised and actions were taken to ensure traffic was safe from further slides. Mr Kerr said a section of the Bluff, opposite the park, had fallen away for about 100m. He said this was at a different end of the Bluff to where earlier reports of falling rocks had been sighted. He said it appeared the slide had been caused by water soaking into the ground uphill from the road cutting. The slide on Saturday was probably the result of rain on Friday night. The slide follows Main Roads work on the new four-lane highway to the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort. Mr Kerr said he wasn't satisfied Main Roads work had caused the slide but said intense concentration of machinery in the area could have shaken the Bluff's stability.

This Special Offer Expires June 30

The slide could have happened before roadwork started and, if it had, Coast people would have been disadvantaged. But traffic still had access to Yeppoon via Farnborough Road on the weekend because the two new lanes were open. Two years ago, traffic might have had to go via Cooberrie to get into town. Mr Kerr said the two outward-bound lanes wouldn't be opened until the Bluff had dried enough to stabilise and traffic could safely use the lanes. Main Roads will now be investigating the best way to stabilise the Bluff and prevent further slides during wet weather. Mr Kerr said a possible way of stabilising the Bluff would be to divert the water from the soil. He said Main Roads plans had included a concrete drain but water was still able to get into soil. The costs to ensure the Bluff was stable would be minor compared to the work being carried out on the four-lane highway.

Under New Management ABOVE: Retired Rockhampton Ambulance financial officer Alf Lawrence feels he has worked harder than ever since offering to assist Yeppoon and E17111 Park District Ambulance with subscription collections and ticket sales for an art union. Mr Lawrence will become a familiar face around the Coast as he door-knocks and sells tickets throughout the area.

Alf Lawrence 'flat out' with QATB FORMER Rockhampton senior finance ambulance officer Alf Lawrence believes since retiring he has worked harder than ever helping out Yeppoon-Emu Park Ambulance. .Mr Lawrence has offered his assistance to the Coast's ambulance brigade, free-of-charge, to collect subscriptions and also sell tickets in the home art union. He said he felt "right at home" with the art union because his main job with Rockhampton had been to organise the home as a prize and the ticket sales. Now retired (since February 28), he will help the ambulance in its financial matters because it will "give the officers more time for ambulance duties". Mr Lawrence said it was important people subscribed to the ambulance, not only to help out with running costs but also because the cost to an injured person using the service without a subscription could add up ... "especially if you need ambulance transport to Brisbane". He outlined the possible cost for a person with hip injuries who, after being transported to Yeppoon, then Rockhampton, was referred to a Brisbane specialist. He said total costs for one way was about S1800. Subscriptions from July 1 will be S58 for a family, S51 for a single worker, S36 for a pen-

sioner couple, and S27 for a single pensioner. Mr Lawrence said this was the cost for just one-way travel ... it was generally up to the patient, unless ordered by the doctor, to find their own way back to Yeppoon. Subscriptions are usually collected yearly. Mr Lawrence said he would be doorknocking north of the Causeway Lake to Byfield in mid July, and south of the Causeway to Emu Park in February and March next year. If people would like to start a subscribition before these collection date, they can call at either the Yeppoon or Emu Park offices. Mr Lawrence is also helping sell ambulance art union tickets for a four-bedroom house in Rockhampton. He said buying tickets though the Coast office would benefit the Coast ambulance but Coast people buying tickets in Rockhampton were not helping the Coast. The Coast ambulance gets 20 per cent of all sales coming from this area but nothing from Coast people buying tickets in Rockhampton. "It is important people support the Coast QATB and the art union," he said. Closing date for the art union is October 12 with the draw on December 22. Tickets are S50 each and interested people can go to the QATB or contact Mr Lawrence on 39 2121.

34. ABOVE: Bubblingsewage spewed out of a manhole in Appleton Park on Sunday. The force lifted the manhole lid while raw sewage, that the system couldn't cope with, oozed around the park.

Poo-lution oozes out of manhole LIVINSTONE Shire Council this week warned householders that tapping storm drain pipes into sewerage outlets was illegal. Council issued the warning after it was found a sewerage overflow in Appleton Park on Sunday could have been caused by too much stormwater. Shire engineer Pat Murphy said the overflow, in which some people reported seeing solids, could have been caused by too much water in the sewerage line. He said the pumps were only meant to handle a certain amount of water. People tap-

Rain-soaked playing fields puts stopper on weekend activities RAIN-soaked playing fields and continued wet weather put an end to many activities and sports on the Capricorn Coast on the weekend. The Wildlife Preservation Society Yeppoon branch cancelled its World Environment Day Fair on Sunday, while Queen Quest entrants had to postpone their car rally. The Capricorn Coast Blue Nursing Service was unable to carry out its annual collections in many areas and will now rely on donors dropping money into its office. CapCoast Rugby Union Club games were rained out and the Seagull's home game was eventually played in Rockhampton. Australian Rules, tennis, golf, bowls and soccer suffered similar fates after rain soaked the Coast late last week. Yeppoon Wildlife Preservation Society president Pat O'Brien said a decision was made early on Sunday to cancel the World Environment Fair.

ping stormwater pipes into the sewerage created a situation where the pumps could not cope with the flow. Even the back-up pumps could not handle the amount of water that probably went through during last week's wet weather. Mr Murphy said not only was it illegal to tap into the sewerage, but it was also a possible health hazard. Mr Murphy said people should be using any stormwater drainage system or a kerbing and channel system, if available.

He said despite efforts to reach people, some still turned out for the day's activities. Mr O'Brien said that, as a result, a couple of stalls were erected and nature walks and other activities were held. "It was disappointing to have the fair cancelled because many people worked hard organising it," Mr O'Brien said. "It's no use postponing because World Environment Day is held on June 5 and no other date. "It means next year's World Environment Day will be bigger and better than the one we had planned for this year." Sunday's car rally organised by the nine Livingstone Shire Bicentennial Queen Quest entrant s was also postponed. It will now be held on Sunday, June 26. Rally drivers and passengers leave from Savemore Centre at 1.30pm. What follows will be a 100km set course which organisers say will be a test of skill ... not speed. ollowing the rally, which ends at Yeppoon Showground, there will be a barbecue. Proceeds from the day will be split among the five charity entrants. The annual Blue Nurses Door Knock appeal was only partly completed because of the weather. The appeal dates cannot be changed and people who did not see a collector are asked to drop off their donations to the Yeppoon centre in Normanby Street or post them. About S8000 was raised last year. So far this year about $5000 has been raised and another $3000 is still needed for running costs. It is the Blue Nurse's main fundraising activity and the centre is dependent on the money for wages and for its running costs. Yeppoon has three full-time nurses, and three casuals who help out when needed. Rugby Union's A grade and under-19 games were washed out while the Rugby League Seagulls played Black-water at Rockhampton's Gymnasium grounds. For the Seagulls, it was a case of cancel, or sink, at the Showground. Showground officials decided the fields could be badly damaged if play was allowed to continue for the Seagull's home game. The change of venue didn't deter the Seagulls from romping home in the game against Black-water.

Bicentennial Show to visit Rockhampton

AT RIGHT: Cec and Dawn Redinger have a lot to smile about because for the first time in eight _years they visited Great Keppel Island. Despite being in a wheelchair (a result of a stroke 15 years ago) Mrs Redinger gads about with her husband. The trip was a Mother's Day present after their three children were unable to return home for the occasion. They said they thoroughly enjoyed their trip which was made easier through the help given by Denison Star staff. They plan to spend about two weeks on the island later this month.

Natasha Higgins packing home comforts for cruise on Tall Ship CAPRICORN Coast teenager Natasha Higgins is throwing in all the comforts of home to spend 10 days on board the Tall Ship, Young Endeavour, during the school holidays. Natasha, 16, is in Year 12 at Yeppoon State High School. She learned this week her name had been selected, along with 23 others, from hundreds of applicants. The chance to join the Young Endeavour during its sail north happened when she saw an advertisement asking 16 to 18-year-olds to apply for a position on one-of-three legs. Natasha jumped at the chance to join the Tall Ship during its Mackay-Townsville leg. She found out three weeks ago that her name had been drawn along with 23 other boys and girls for that particular leg.

There were about 20 competitors in each event. Most attend college with Heidi. For the first time, Rockhampton's Technical and Further Education College held a competition for apprentices. Salon 24 proprietor Ann Devlin said other TAFE centre's held a competition, but it was a first in Rockhampton last weekend. The hairdressing championship was held in the Rockhampton Shopping Fair on Saturday. Ann Devlin said she was pleased with Heidi's efforts. She said Heidi had started working for Salon 24 as an apprentice 12 months ago but before that worked part-time on Saturdays.

She and another Rockhampton girl will be the only Central Queenslander on board. The remaining "crew" come from around the State. The young crew will be expected to do anything from cleaning to scrubbing the deck. Even the thought of having to work during her holidays doesn't bother Natasha. She can't wait for the June 21 departure day to roll around. The only requirments needed for the cruise were a medical certificate and an ability to swim 50m. Natasha said organisers had also sent books and information about knots and general other seamanship rules. Natasha realises -the trip won't be just a holiday cruise but the chance to join the crew of a Tall Ship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. She said beach activities and other events were also part of the cruise.

CENTRAL Queensland is one-of-six planned stops for the Australian Bicentennial Authority's travelling visual exhibition show. The first of these six visits will be at Mt Isa on June 25 and will continue through to Cairns from July 7-10, Townsville July 16-19, Rockhampton July 26-29, Maryborough August 5-8 and Toowooba August 14-17. The exhibition will be stopping at 34 Australian centres during the year travelling in about 20,000km. It has already been seen in Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Eighty-seven vehicles move the show from place-to-place giving country Australians a look at the nation's past, present and future. The colourfully painted pantechnicons open into six displays containing objects and images aimed at provoking education and exploration; highlighting challenges taken on by Australia and also what it means to be Australian. The exhibition takes on a different identity each time it stops and participating locals contribute displays about their main industries and activities. Live performances by bands, school choirs, Aboriginal corroborees and fashion shows add to the atmosphere. Tickets go on sale two days before the opening at each location.

Stevie Wright • will bring back memories for former fans of Easybeats... and the sixties! WHEN Stevie Wright hits the stage at La Bamba tonight (Friday), hundreds will be taken back in time to an era when the Easybeats were Australia's top rock group. Hits like Friday on My Mind, She's So Fine, For My Woman, Woman, In My Book, Easy as can be, Sad and Lonely and Blue, Sony and I'll Make You Happy, topped the charts between '65 and '67. In 1987 the ex-Easybeats singer formed a new group, Hard Rain, and started on the come-back trail with a bevy of blockbusting '60s hits. The Bicentennial year has been an historic time for Australians ... even more so for Stevie who has spent the past decade out of the rough and tumble world of music, except for a couple of performances in 1980 and 1986. His performance during The Royal Bicentennial Concert showed signs of more to come and he spent the following months touring Victoria and Adelaide. The reception from audiences has assured Stevie his efforts to revive the Easybeats hits from the '60s won't go unnoticed. Already fellow ex-Easybeats Harry Vanda and George Young have helped out with the recording of a single in March. La Bamba has scored a coup by having Stevie Wright singing tonight. Older Coast residents will remember the impact the Easybeats had ... some have said the group's songs produced a following in Australia close to that of Beatlemania. Younger rock 'n'roll fanswill now have the chance to see a legend in action. To refresh older rockers' memories, The Easybeats soared to fame during the '60s and, at one stage, they produced a string of double A side hit singles and EPs which produced a separate hit with each and every track. The Beatles' Sgt Peppers album stole some of the limelight, when it wasreleased in Australia, but the Easybeats still enjoyed fame until the early '70s. Stevie, at this time, spent about two years performing in the hit musical, Jesus Christ Superstar. He, Vanda and Young then wrote singles, which again dominated the rock scene in the mid '70s. In 1980 Stevie appeared at the Concert of the Decade. His only other appearance after that time was in April, 1986, at a Sydney Hotel.

TOP CASH PURSE • CONTINUED chop block class for three-men teams. It is the first time at Yeppoon Show and about five teams arc expected." Cr Dorey said the woodchops thisyear had attracted its biggest cash purse, S1060. for Saturday's six-event programme. Well known axemen, including Des Stumer from Biloela, will be contesting the A and B championships. A last-minute decision by society members has resulted in an additional toilet block. The new pavilion has cost about 532,000 and another S4000 was spent in building a male and female toilet block, with wide doors for wheelchair access. The new pavilion has a canteen section with built-i44 sinks, oven, and a cafeteria-style servery. Cr Dorey said 190 people could now be comfortably seated in the pavilion. This is 110 more than in past years. The Yeppoon, Byfield and Emu Park Historical Societies will be using part of the new pavilion. The historical display takes up about--nine metres of the building. Additional facilities have also been built for the stud beef and cattle shows on Sunday. A new ramp will make unloading animals much easier. The cattle-holding paddock, across the creek, can hold 200 head. An extra judging rina and warm-up ring will help reduce time lost t'through large entries in the equestrian events. Some classes, in past years, had up to 28 entries. All horse, cattle, dog, goat and woodchop top award winnerswill be given specially struck

Let Capricorn Backpackers whisk you away to this fabulous, tropical Coral Cay on the Great Barrier Reef



Mr Griese only started breeding Ang( goats 12 months ago but his interest goes ba‘..., to the early '70s when he managed a hotel/ motel in Canberra. An Angora goat convention was a regular event in Canberra in the '70s and he met many top breeders when they stayed at the hotel/ motel he managed. His interest in goats was only from the sideline because he moved around for a number of years before finally settling in Yeppoon. Mr Griese noticed there wasn't a section for Angora goats in the Yeppoon Show so he started it by sponsoring the champion of cham-

North West Island


BEHIND the bright lights, the side-show rides, the exhibits and events at any Show there are people who have devoted hours of their time to planning and preparing one section. Some, like Bert Griese of Capricorn Seafoods, do it because they are interested in what is happening and want to further promote a particular interest so others can enjoy it as well. Five years ago Mr Griese, by sponsoring a goat show during the Yeppoon Show, made it possible for a new section, the Angora goat show. Angora goat breeders now regard the Yeppoon Show's events as an important stop on the show circuit.

ere are now 13 classes, including pure Does, pure bred Bucks, grade Does and.wethers. The show not only highlights the animals but also finished articles made from their fleece. Mohair (fleece) jumpers and dresses as well as other products will be an important feature of the Angora goat displays this year. Mr Griese said it gave people a more complete picture to see where Mohair came from and the ways it could be used. The animal, and the quality of its fleece, are major points for judging. This year's judge,

Ron Carter from Tansley, near Eukey, is one of Australia's top Angora breeders. It will be Mr Carter's job to judge the goats on size, shape, conformation and fleece quality. He will also look to see which animals have the least amount of kemp (course wool) in their fleece. Mr Griese said he had never entered goats before and was still making a decision on whether he would enter one of his animals this year. He said he sponsored the goat section to further the interest of Angora goats in the Central Queensland area.

FOR WOODCHOP FROM PA GE 1 Bicentennial medallions. Forty smaller medallions will be presented in champion events and a further 60 Bicentennial mugs, made by committee member Val Barnett, will be given to section winners. Atkinson's Pavilion has more undercover space, inside and outside, and is well taken up with displays of fine art and pottery. A special feature at this year's show will be the static display by Yeppoon State. High School. Many subject areas form this display. Missing this year will be the caged bird display. Mr Dorey said organisers, Mr and Mrs Croydon, had been unable to work the display. "Mrs Croydon was injured in an accident earlier this year and their display, which is always a crowd pleaser, will be missed," Cr Dorey said. Attempts to have trotting excluded from the programme were quickly stopped. Cr Dorey said trotting had never been a profitable - exercise but was a great crowd pleaser. "The way trotters turn-out their animals makes it an attractive event to watch," he said. "For that reason, trotting will always be included in the programme." Sideshow alley will be filled to capacity. Cr Dorey said each year larger rides were filling the spaces and more entertaining attractions were being added by Showmen's Guild members. Yeppoon Show opens at 8am on Saturday. The night programme starts about 6pm and ends at 9pm. Sunday's events open at 7.30am and the show is expected to finish about 5pm.

Drama festival offers 5 plays from 4 groups Yeppoon Little Theatre's Festival of Drama gets underway on Saturday at 8pm. The festival started five years ago to give amateur groups a chance to get together. The groups compete for trophies but the value gained from seeing other clubs perform; the way they interpret scripts, and the critique given by the judge, are the main reason for attending. Organisers said five plays performed by four groups would be offered over two nights. Three plays will be featured on Saturday with the other two, plus supper, on Sunday night. For the first time, Wowan Amateur Theatre group will be participating. They start proceedings on Saturday with a farce, "Its a Crust", followed by Rockhampton Backyard Theatre's "Bill's Barbecue" and Yeppoon's drama, "We'll dress her like Shirley Temple," directed by Paul Peterson. Yeppoon Little Theatre starts the ball roiling on Sunday with a comedy, "Room 22". Capricornia Institute players will follow with a mystery/drama called "Mrs Thalley F". Supper follows these two plays while the adjudicates, Ron Verburgt prepares a summary and deliberates before presenting his critique and the awards. Organisers said everyone was welcome to attend performances. Spokesman Rosalie Steyn said performers would be able to meet other performers and would also mix with the audience. She said the audience could talk to actors and the adjudicator to learn how a play was directed and also ask questions of anyone involved both front and backstage. A special festival ticket is S9 or it's S5 a night. Tickets will be available at the door.

Cr Dorey said many top international and State horsemen and cattlemen used the Yeppoon Show as a prelude to Rockhampton Show. Rockhampton's Show was a major event on the Show circuit and many used Yeppoon as a warm-up to the followingweek's programme. And, despite competition from other activities, the show has reported a steady increase in patronage in the past fewyears. "People like the Show because it's small but interesting," Cr Dorey said.

Chefs' event CAPRICORN Iwasaki Resort will stage a ion Culinaire, (Chefs' Competition) and a stival of fine foods at the resort on July 16 and 17. Organisers hope it will be the first of an annual event that will encourage both apprentice and qualified chefs to compete and display their talents to the people of Queensland. To complement the competition, the resort will conduct a special evening of fine and varied dining to enable visitors to taste different dishes from all over the world. This, in conjunction with wine tasting and entertainment, will give everyone an interesting and entertaining evening. The competition will cover four different aspects of the chefs craft ranging from food sculptures to desserts with a special section for new creations. This section will enable each entrant to utilise their creative talents to the fullest extent. A panel of judges comprising some of Australia'sleading food expertswill be on hand to ensure the highest standards of judging are observed.


Full praise for council officers FROM time to time we read where people knock the efforts of Livingstone Shire officers, so it is only fair that credit should also be given. Having completed a major project at Showground, these officers are worthy of praise. John Milne and his assistant Ken of the building inspector's office, John Harmsworth of the health section and Les Smith from plumbing and draining. From the start of the project they all gave freely of their advice and guidance, making our work much easier by their promptness in approving of work and carrying out inspections. I am sure all Show society members join me in extending thanks to these officers. - B Barnett, ground supervisor Yeppoon Show Society.

Have you ever wondered what children read 70 years ago? DO you know the title of the first Australian children's book and when it was published? Have you ever wondered what kind of books children read 70 years ago? Would you like to see working drawings and original illustrations from famous books and discover the process involved in their production? An exhibition has been organised at the North Rockhampton public library, Berserker Street, North Rockhampton, on Monday, June 20. The exhibition is drawn from the internationally recognised Dromkeen Children's Literature Collection which is housed at Riddells Creek in rural Victoria. The collection, conceived in 1973 by booksellers Court and Joyce Oldmeadow, has become a home for children's literature in all its forms and now boasts some 3,000 separate exhibits. From the start, it was intended the collection should not be locked away but should be accessible to the public especially children. Today, over 12,000 Victorian children visit the Dromkeen Homestead each year in organised excursions and the various displays are constantly visited by researchers, librarians, teachers and the general public. The Dromkeen Collection is now recognised internationally as being of major importance in the world of children's literature and as a result of overseas bequests it now also contains material from the United States, Japan, Malaysia and China. Official recognition was accorded Court and Joyce Oldmeadow in 1976 when they were presented with the Eleanor Farjeon award in the United Kingdom. Since Court's death in 1977, the publishing groupAshton Scholastic has become the major benefactor of Dromkeen and as a contribution to the bicentennial programme, together with Joyce Oldmeadow, has organised a national tour of a significent part of the collection. Originally the tour was to include capital

cities but now in conjunction with M and M Educational Suppliers Pty Ltd, it can be seen in Townsville, Rockhampton and Noosa during June. Dates and times for the Rockhampton exhibition: Monday 20, 10am to 4pm; Tuesday 21, 10am to 6pm; Wednesday 22, 10am to 6pm; Thursday 23, 10am to 6pm; Friday 24, 10am to 4pm. Admission is free to this exhibition and presents the opportunity for older generations to reminisce and recall the books of their childhood and for today's children to discover the magical world of children's literature past and present in all its forms.

Five Tall Ships for Keppel Bay FIVE tall ships will grace Keppel Bay's shores in July, August and November. The Amorina, Bounty, Soren Larsen, Anna Kirsten and Tucker Thompson will stop at Great Keppel Island during stages of specially planned cruises to North Queensland. Great Keppel is the overnight port-of-call for passengers joining and leaving the cruife. Resort general manager Rob Cooke said the Tall Ships would stop at the island on three occasions ... July 23 and 24, August 20 and 21, and November 12 and 13. He said Amorina would lead the convoy in July when it arrives from Fraser Island with its passengers. The Bounty, Soren Larsen, Anna Kirsten and Tucker Thompson will arrive from Fraser Island during August. The last visit by the ships will be in November when the Bounty, Soren Larsen and Anna Kirsten sail from the Whitsundays. Mr Cooke said the ships would be anchored off Great Keppel Island in front of the resort.

Bigger loans THE Commonwealth Development Bank has increased its preferred maximum loan from Si million to $2 million. Higher amountswill be considered in appropriate circumstances. The same preferred maximum will apply to its equipment financing facility. Commonwealth Development Bank chief general manager John Fletcher said this measure will enable the bank to assist a wider range of applicants engaged in all forms of business and primary production. "The bank will now be able to offer more financial assistance for the establishment, acquisition or carrying on of businesses, including rural businesses, which are unable to obtain the funds elsewhere on reasonable terms and conditions," he said. The CDB was established for this purpose. To this end, CDB works closely with all major Australian banks to ensure the best financial packages are available to meet the needs of Australian enterprises. "CDB's loans will continue to be made for fixed terms, usually from 3 to 20 years although longer terms are available. As a cash flow lender, CDB will continue to tailor repayments to suit the borrower's income pattern. "Increased flexibility is the key note of CDB operations. This is evidenced not only by the repayment arrangements that are available, but also by the recently introduced option of a variable or fixed interest rate for new borrowers." Applications for loans may be lodged directly' with the CDB in each capital city or through most trading banks.

The condition of the first two kilometres of Stones Road has certainly altered and it will definitely need a lot of work to restore it to reasonable condition. - E Jackson, MS 142, Cooberrie.

COAST basketball Intermediate and B grade finals were played last week with plenty of enthusiasm and committment. Young Ones again showed Celtics they were not unbeatable. When aided by a bench coach they were able to apply effective defence to block out Celtics attack limiting the scoring to captain. Jason Moody throughout the first half. Basketball is a 40 minute game and Young Ones lost control in the second half, allowing Celtics to use their running game and score 2 to 1. Adrian Deurloo put in a good second half performance for Celtics while Lee Dungey and Mike Chandler were outstanding players with Young Ones. These two groups of players, with heaps of potential, are lacking full time coaches. "Perhaps some seniors could lend a hand next season. If you are willina to help please contact Mike George at the ° high school; 39 1815 or myself after hours, 39 3414," publicity officer Don Willoughby said. B women. Billabongs B started poorly and several players squandered possession with forced shots and negligible defence to cover the fast break. Pink Galahs Megan Anderson and Shame Willoughby were aggressive defenders rattling Billabongs B who conceded 17 points at the break. This agression left Galahs with their two outstanding defenders in foul trouble in the second half allowing Billabongs Jan McCallum and Aleena Sousaari to capitilise on the weaker cover. The lead was too much to assail and Billabongs 10 points second half advantage was insufficent to capture the prize. In the first half against St Brendan's boys, B Men Tanby Roses appeared to have started half an hour before they were ready and wandered about the court without direction. It was a more inspired and hungry Roses who took the court after half time and demonstrated to the lads that you can never relax in a basketball game. Keith Hendy drew foul after foul with determined drives to the basket. . "Aggression in basketball doesn't necessarily mean play contrary to the rules of the game, simply a committment to push hard for any advantage that can be gained. "This has been the backbone of Brendan's success. When confronted by a similar committment by the other side the boys were forced into errors and fouls. A point no doubt noted by coaches of their opponents," Mr Willoughby said. "Despite these problems there was no argument. St Brendans was definitely the stronger team and fully deserved the crown after an unbeaten season. "There were great performances all round but if someone had to be nominated as most

valuable it would be Michael Adcock." The Coast invitation team playing against Rockhampton's U/16 girls found how tough these well-trained representative teams can be. Despite playing a whole game on the bottom half of the score, it was the Coast players who kept their heads in the final minutes ... snatching a win from the Rocky girls for a 53 to 50 result. Samantha Willoughby and Cathy Rosenthal each scored 14 points. The fundraising progressive dinner for juniors last Saturday suffered difficulties due to extensive rain at several of the host homes. The diners were restricted to two locations, finishing the evening at the National Fitness hall. It was a success for the organisers and junior basketball will benefit by over $400. Capricorn Coast basketball will have U/16 girls and U/14 boys at the Rocky Junior carnival this weekend. The U/14 boys will also play at the Sunstate Classics from June 18 to 20 and the U/16 boys at the Sunstate Classics in Mackay on June 23. SundayJuly 10 and Monday July 11 starts the next season for juniors. Teams should register early by contacting Joanne Smith on 39 4415. Plans are underway for a family fun and sign on day to be held at Bell Park on July 2 or 3. Details from Allan Thomas 39 6687.

C Peers won the secret hole and pinshot was won by .D Webb. A working beewill start at 8am this Saturday. The Open Championships will be held on June 17, 18 and 19 and the course will need a fair amount of preparation. A good roll up to assist with this preparatory work will be appreciated and organisers said it was a case of many hands make light work. A stroke game will be played in the afternoon. Sunday is a social day. During the winter months hit off times will be from 11.30am to noon.

Late rain gives ducks a break from normal shooting season THE duck season will be later than usual in the large part of central and northern Queensland this year. Details of the 1988 season were given today by Environment and Conservation Minister Geoff Muntz following executive council approval. "Because of the relatively late rains in central and northern Queensland, the start of the breeding season for waterfowl was delayed this year," he said. "This has resulted in a likelihood that fledgling birds will still be present in late June, which is the traditional start of the open season in those districts. "For this reason, the open season for Fauna District two, three and six will run from July 30 to October 30. The season in district five in the west will run from June 25 to September 25. "In this way, wild duck populations are not expected to be affected adversely," he said. (Fauna District two covers from North of Bundaberg, west to beyond Alpha and North to Collinsville. Fauna District three extends from Proserpine to beyond Cooktown and inland past Pentland and Greenvale. Fauna District six, which includes the bulk of North-west Queensland and includes Cape York Peninsula, entends north from a line starting at the border welt of Mt Isa and continuing to a point east of Hughenden.) The open season has been declared for six species of duck - black, woodys, grey, teal, grass whistlers, water whistlers and white-eyeds - will run from May 28 to August 28, in Fauna Districts one and four across southern Queensland, south from about 25 degrees south latitude. Two species of quail - stubble quail and brown quail have been declared and the season will run from May 28 to August 28 in Fauna Districts one and two (as per map in Order in Council). Taking is restricted to using a shotgun by a person holding an Open Season Fauna Permit

(Personal Use) obtained for $15 from Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service Offices in Brisbane, Toowoomba, Charleville, Maryborough, Rockhampton, Townsville,, Cairns and Mt Isa. A permit condition is that within one month of the season's close, the holder must report to the service the number and species taken. Any one person may take or have in his possession during the Open Season only 12 birds in any 24 hours. Ducks and quail shot may not be sold. Shooting requires landholders' permission. Hunting is forbidden on many private properties, crown land such as state forests and national parks, and certain shires and cities all• declared fauna sanctuaries. An identification guide and further details may be obtained from Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service offices.

Subsidy cheque for life savers

MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton presented a $7,875 cheque to the Emu Park Surf. Life Saving Club ... a subsidy from the Queensland Government. • A total of $1.61 million in subsidies from the Queensland Government will be shared between 52 clubs this year. "The grants are in recognition of the excellent work and community service provided by members of surf lifesaving clubs in Queensland," Mr Hinton said. "The public could help lifesavers by observing any official warning signs displayed, never swimming alone, and never swimming out too far or beyond one's capabilities if an inexperienced or weak swimmer. "I commend lifesaving clubs for the excellent service they give the community and Emu Park is fortunate in having such a dedicated club."

Supplement can be claimed for low incomes

IF you know a low income family, check they are receiving the Federal Government's Family Allowance Supplement. That's the suggestion of Queensland Labor Senator Mal Colston. "The Federal Government is concerned that many eligible families may have still not applied for the supplement," he said. A family earning S300 a week or less can be paid S22 a week for each child under 13 years of age and $28 for a child aged 13 to 15. For higher rates of income, some allowance is still payable and the income test is easier for larger families. For example, a familywith two children aged between 13 and 15 can receive some supplement while earning up to $424 a week. Benefits for children of pensioners are equal to the maximum rate for the Family Allowance Supplement. Therefore the supplement is not payable to social security beneficiaries. "The Family Allowance Supplement is part of the Hawke Government's aim that by 1990, no child in Australia should live in poverty," Senator Colston said. "It is essential that low income families b' come aware that they can apply for the supple—) ment. The extra amount they can receive must help the family budget. "Any person who thought they could be eligible should contact their local office of the Department of Social Security."

Seagulls play 60 minutes of top 70 tee-off for Wednesday golf football in 8-try winning romp • By David Ruck YEPPOON Seagulls played 60 minutes of superb football in an eight-try romp over Black-water last Sunday. Although scoring three late tries, the Bulldogs were never in the race due to an early tryscoring spree by the Seagulls. There was skill, loads of it, toughness, speed and experience on display as Yeppoon rattled on five early first-half tries. There was talk that the Englishmen were strong, and the French, classy, but one man stood out like an aristocrat ... centre, Brian Watts. The New Zealander, and former Rugby Union player, showed elegance in everything he did ... whether it was setting up tries, kicking goals or tackling. Watts, a player not spoken of in the preseason talks, has become a vital cog in the Seagull's backline this season.

There were some other strong performances in the backline. Winger Steve Patch bagged three tries, fullback Dennis Ogden attacked cleverly and Frenchman Porgeau showed real class. Yeppoon's tough forward pack matched Black-water in every department. English forward Mark Parry looked strong and fast, often busting the first tackle, showing off loading skills and the ability of knowing when to use them. It was unfortunate he was injured in the dying stages of the match due to a gaping headwrench. Tough forward Ian Brazier, not long back from injury, turned in a sterling performance Often described as a heart-with-legs, he lives up to his reputation. Although not a full 80-minute effort from the Seagulls, coach John Rhodes should be well satisfied that his team has the potential to go all the way, bearing in mind grand finals aren't won in early June.

Chris Hacker took Anyhows' first rubber with a nail-biting 9-4, 7-9, 10-8, 9-6 result against JOhn Brodi. The third game was the crucial one because a win by John would have given Saints and Sinners an unbeatable lead. Anyhows captain Neil Roberts and Saints and Sinners Joe Foat took the court with Joe's objection a game or 20 points and Neil's target

a 3-0 win and to minimise lost points. With Neil showing improved concentration and Joe having difficulty finding direction, Neil took the first game 9-2. Joe's target then became a game. Neil maintained the pressure to • win the second but had a momentary waver of concentration at the start of the third to see Joe take a 3-0 lead. Application and a sharp crosscourt drive clear of the walls saw Neil recover the lead and go on to a team win. Anyhows now meet Equalisers in the grand final on Wednesday night starting at 7pm.

CapCoast plays Institute at home CAPCOAST Rugby take on the strong Institute club in both grades this Saturday at Cooee Bay Oval. Coast'sA grade side has now won five of its seven games to date and beat Institute easily in the first round. The game should be a lot closer this time with a real battle looming up front between the forward packs. The backs haven't really clicked this season and,given plenty of ball,could prove the knockers wrong. The under 19 side, although only recording one win this season, has showed much improvement over the weeks. With a narrow four-point loss to Brothers two weeks ago the boys should be ready to make amends this weekend with the home ground advantage proving a handful for the Institute side.

THE Royal Australian Navy will make its presence known during the Commonwealth Bank-sponsored Fifth World and 15th Australian Tasar Titles being held in Yeppoon next month. HMAS Bendigo, a naval patrol boat, will play an important role in transporting the official committee during the 10-day world championship hosted by Keppel Bay Sailing Club. Entries had already reached 115 boats when the organisers were contacted this week. However, it is expected more could filter in next week. New Zealanders, Canadians, Americans and Japanese are part of the flotilla which also includes competitors from all mainland States and Territories. Hosts, Keppel Bay Sailing Club, have spent the past three years preparing for the world titles. Publicity officer Colin Syms said 13 twoman crews would be coming from overseas. To cater for these overseas competitors, five new boatswere added to the present flotilla. "It will be the first time Japan has sent any competitors, and seven crews are expected," he said. Mr Syms said the Canadian and New Zealand crews were old hands at Tasar world titles, which were first held in Australia in 1981. Three more titles - Canada 1983, Sydney 1985 and England 1986 - have since been held. Current world title holders, the Royal Australian Navy Crew, with crew members Lt Commander Rick Longbottom as skipper and forehand Louise Scuellion, will defend their title. Traditionally the competition starts with an Invitation Day. This will be held on Sunday, July 3, which is also the official opening day. Mr Syms said warm-up heats, to enable crews to familiarise themselves with the waters and conditions, would be held on June 30 (two

ABOVE: Watch out Brisbane Bears, the Emu Park Bears are ready and rearing to go. The newly formed under 11 Australian Rules team has already faced the firing line with games against Rockhampton clubs. The object is to teach boys and girls the basics of thegame but also to promote participation and fiin. Organisers said girls were in no danger because modified ndes ensure once a player has the ball, they cannot be tackled or touched. A good response from parents has meant no transport worries for the team. Competition prizes are held on Sunday while training is every Thursday at 3.30pm at the Ellin Park Cricket Ground. Emu Park Bears has only nine players and wants more boys and girls to join the club. Richard Pryor (left) and Col Purton (right)give a few pointers to Brad Purton, Darren Spiers, Nicholas Purdie, Chris Moulds, Shanee Goodger, Michael Ford and Col Purton.

heats) and July 1 (two heats). Competitions start on Monday, July 4. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are for heats, Thursday is a lay-day, Friday, Saturday and Sunday are the final three heats. Mr Syms said, like golf, the winners would be the crew with the lowest score. "It is definitely a sport of skill, concentration, application and judgement," he said. "Wind conditions change constantly and knowing when to set and trim sails are both important areas which separate winners from the remaining flotilla." Mr Syms said boats would sail alternate mornings and afternoons over an 11.8 nautical mile (23km) course. Five rescue craft, (three craft have come from club members and the Port Curtis Club) will be on hand throughout the competition. Holding the titles is an achievement for the Coast because out of four applications, only one (Keppel Bay's) was outside Sydney. Mr Syms said Sydney was recognised as "Tasar City" and for the Coast to hold the titles was a great achievement. Sydney also had the biggest turnout of Tasar competitors (122 entries) during the 1985 titles. Mr Syms said it was possible for this year's entries to equal, or even better, this number. The titles should attract about 350 people. Most crews will be accompanied by families and there will also be a number of spectators.

A WOMAN at the Singing Ship on Saturday afternoon was calling out to her dog named Lucky. Nothing strange in that except that "Old Baldy" used to have a dog named Lucky and he has been pondering lately why dogs are given that name. Suzy and he gave their dog that name because they picked him up from the pound and said at the time they would be lucky to find the dog they were looking for and the dog would be lucky to escape from his cage. They thought it was original. On Friday, they were delivering papers to one of the paper boys and they heard the boy's mother call a dog Lucky. Turns out to be the same story ... they thought the dog was lucky to get a home. So, down at the Singing Ship on Saturday, "OB" decides to check out how that dog running free got his name ... same story. This dog was impounded in South Australia and the woman happened to be on hand at the time. She was worried about the dog's fate so kept in daily contact with the pound. On the last day, when it was obvious no-one was going to claim the dog, she bought him, saving him from execution. She paid S130 to have him shipped to her Melbourne home and now he's with her on a holiday up here. Samr story ... same name. Is there any other reaso. for calling a dog Lucky? • • • IS this a promotion or demotion? Officerin-charge of Yeppoon Police Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer was on the front page last week and now he's on the back page! Anyway, one little boy can consider himself lucky Ken was on the phone one day this week. The Mirror's Cathy (Lois Lane) Logan was interviewing him about road rules and so on when Ken remarked that he could see a boy riding by on the footpath. Ken gave Cathy a blowby-blow account. The boy gave a perfect hand signal at the corner, stopped and got off his bike, walked across the pedestrian crossing holding up his hand to stop the cars ... then got back his bike and continued on his way cycling along the footpath. That was what the interview was about ... children being taught the road rules, and especially not to ride their bikes on the footpath!!! • • • HEAR about the cadet photographer who was so excited about a photograph he had just taken that he opened the back of the camera to see what it looked like? • • • FOR some reason or another the above item brings to mind a conversation overheard between Rhodes Watson and his mother, sweet, lovable Suzy ... Rhodes had a frown on his face (which means he was thinking) and Suzy had a frown on her face (which means she was annoyed). Anyhow, Rhodes finally works out that he has something pressingly urgent to say: "Mum, how do you stop seagulls from landing on the bottom of the car?" Suzy's frown thickened (throwing shadows over her face). TheRhodes realised he had made a mistaka...../ "Mum, do you know how to stop seagulls from landing on the bonnet of the car?" Suzy stopped work, completely ... with exasperation in her voice she said: "Rhodes, I don't care." Undeterred, Rhodes then carried on a rambling story about eating lunch on the beachfront and the seagulls dropping out of the sky and landing on the bonnet of his car and making noises and dropping messages and so on and so forth. Suzy, totally exasperated shouted: "Get to the point." Rhodes, in reply, said: "Put a lemon on it." Suzy just looked at him ... then muttered something about "he isn't mine, he isn't mine". Rhodes, again undeterred, said: "If you put a lemon on the bonnet of the car it stops the seagulls from landing on it." Now, that may sound totally ridiculous, but all Tuesday Rhodes drove around town with a slice of lemon on the front of his car and he was quite right ... there wasn't a seagull to be seen on the :i.onnet!!
