White knight to ■ the rescue of town --alone!

SEAFOOD and Eat It principal Ross Dickson is on the warpath because of cornments made about Yeppoon by a State Government public servant ... but he's also angry at Coast groups. Small Business Development Corporation general manager Coleene Anger blasted Yeppoon last week by saying she had been unable to get a meal in the town and was also unable to get petrol. These remarks were reportedly made shortly after she had given an address to the Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry on how to promote the town. Her comments drew solid criticism around the town ... but that's why Ross Dickson is on the warpath: "No-one supposedly in authority did anything," he said on Wednesday. "I assumed her remarks would have been blasted by a variety of Coast organisations which should have been up in arms about the story. "The next day there was nothing in the paper ... absolutely nothing." There was nothing over the weekend or on Monday and that's when Mr Dickson hit the roof. He phoned the newspaper that afternoon and his call for Mrs Anger's resignation was printed on Wednesday. But that wasn't enough. He also contacted two television stations and let fly at them. The result was an item on Wednesday night's news plus the promise of a further interview over the weekend. BTQ-7 in Brisbane is flying a news team to the Coast today to interview Mr Dickson for a current affairs programme to be aired in the capital. "The TV people also want to interview any other people interested in defending Yeppoon against Mrs Anger's remarks," Mr Dickson said. But this has created another problem. Mr

Dickson said he assumed heads of various groups would want to get involved and come out in support of their own town ... "but, so far, I'm on my own," he said. The problem, it seems, is that Mrs Anger is not a public servant in some people's minds. Mr Dickson said it seemed as if she was representing a "bank" ... a bank that can shower the town with money. "Too many people have taken the attitude that she represents the State Government and that the State Government has the power to give, or with-hold, funds," he said. "That may well be true, but isn't there a principle at stake? No-one seems to have cottoned on to the idea that this woman was a guest of this town; was a representatiove of small business; and yet she felt free to criticise her hosts, to slam the very people who keep her in a job. "I could have accepted her remarks if they had been correct I would be among the first to admit the town has some short-comings. But her remarks were wrong, completely wrong ... and they have since been proven to be wrong. "For that reason alone, this town must fight back. It must stop its name being smeared. The State Government should act, if Mrs Anger won't "If she had made the same remarks about a Japanese resort in Queensland she would already be looking for another job ... apparently, Yeppoon doesn't count" Mr Dickson said he would be facing the TV camera on the weekend and would be repeating his call for her resignation. "Maybe I should look on the bright side and see this TV appearance as a chance to promote the town in the South ... but why should a bloke who runs a fish and chop shop have to do it? Where are the council, business and tourism leaders?"

AN idea created for a toddler 15 years ago is already in limited production and is set to become a big money-spinnerwhen premises are built on the Yeppoon Industrial Estate. Like all the best ideas, it's so simple it's a wonder it hasn't been available for years. Called, tentatively, the Aussie 5-in-1, the child's chair, table, desk and blackboard has already been bought by Myer stores, Melbourne. For Mary Street, Yeppoon, resident Ian

McConnell, the Aussie 5-in-1 is an invention that has changed his life. After a lifetime in the fishing industry in New South Wales and Queensland, Mr McConnell is now working full-time producing the 5-in-1 in big quantities. He's excited about his future because the 5in-1 obviously has a big market. It started as a personal table and chair for daughter Nicole 15 years ago. Even if the prototype it had features that made it more useful than normal furniture

for children. Right from the start, Mr McConnell saw the need for a personal table and chair for children that was not bulky. It would have been easy enough to make a small table and a small chair and Nicole would have loved it. But Mr McConnell wanted something that was more useful. Even 15 years ago, he saw the problem with most children's furniture was that it got in the way in the average home.

The prototype 5-in-1 was made in such a way that it could be assembled and disassembled in probably less than a minute. There are two sides that are stood up and held apart by two pieces of timber that fit into the sides; a seat that slides into the back of them; a backrest that slides down onto the scat; and a table-top that slides into the front. The tabletop can also be mounted almost vertically to

THREE Capricorn Coast students spent five days at Brisbane's Griffith University learning about tertiary education. St Ursula's College studentsAllison Mitchell and Lorissa Flanagan and Ned Clinch from Yeppoon State High School were part of more than 100 high school students from all parts of Queensland and northern New South Wales who took part in the university's second annual Winter School. The students lived in the residential village and took part in a varied program of activities designed to acquaint them with the university. The Winter School aimed to give the students an idea of what university life was like so they would be better informed when the time came for them to make decisions about their future career and educational paths. But it was not all serious study-oriented activities. The high school students participated in games, a river trip, and barbecues as well as listening to discussion sessions explaining what each of the Griffith University divisions had to offer. They also toured Expo '88 and saw the Univations pavilion which has been put together by Queensland's three universities Griffith, Queensland and James Cook at Townsville.

The result is something that today's mothers will find hard to resist ... a piece of furniture that takes up a small amount of space, can be disassembled and stacked flat in a cardboard box, can be taken in the car when visiting and provide a child with a safe, entertaining activity area. Mr McConnell built the first model for Nicole so that she would have her own place to eat and play. But 15 years ago, technology had not created today's building materials and tools. He used three-ply for the prototype, cutting it out with a jigsaw. While the idea was good, the resulting furniture was far too heavy. Today, with Craftwood, available in a variety of thicknesses, and routers, the Aussie 5-in1 has found a new lease of life that will go a long way toward putting Yeppoon, and the Capricorn Coast, on the map. "There was nothing wrong with plywood years ago," Mr McConnell said. "But mothers have enough work to do without lifting heavy slabs of timber when they want to put something away. The 5-in-1, 15 years ago, was way ahead of its time. "With the materials available today I can build the 5-in-1 with the same strength yet have a lightweight finished product that will become essential for toddlers. "It's so strong and well made, I can see them being handed down from child to child." Then again, with Myer stores selling them for less than $150, it's quite likelyyoung families will have more than one of them. Mr McConnell, who invented and patented the Aussie 5-in-1, has also demonstrated the ability to sell the finished product ... a skill that makes the difference between something that sits on a shelf and one that takes off. He went to Expo in May and decided to try and sell the idea to a few shops in Brisbane. He started at the top by calling on Myers. He was told the Melbourne office handled buying.

McConnell flew to Melbourne the next day. He stayed overnight with a relative, called at Myers the next morning, and was immediately ushered into the head buyer's office. "I was amazed," he said. "There were people everywhere waiting to show off their products to Myers and I was shown in ahead of all of them. re "I showed the 5-in-1; told them how mucet I could sell them for ... and they bought 400 on the spot." That was it. He was on his way. There was no need to call on other buyers because he d cracked the big one at the first attempt. Mr McConnell returned to Brisbane. drove back to Yeppoon and started manufac turing in a shed he bought in Wattle Street Yeppoon. Within days he realised the shed was nowhere near enough the size it would have to he for full-scale manufacturing. He applied to rule Department of Industrial Development for block of land in the Yeppoon Industrial Estate and is now waiting for approval before moving to new premises he will build there. Once that shed is built, the 5-in-1 goes into full-scale production with staff to be employed. Mr McConnell said he would need about five people helping from the start. They don't have to be skilled tradespeople. He is now being helped by Nicole and another woman. And the 5-in-1 won't be the end of it ... Mr McConnell is already designing a wooden toy that can be made from the 5-in-1's offcuts. But that's another story!

Red Shield Appeal needs volunteers ORGANISERS of the annual Red Shield Appeal are again looking for volunteers to he"' 46) out with driving and collections. Yeppoon committee chairman Dave Hutton said mainly drivers were needed because, as in past years,- the three secondary schools - St Ursula's, St Brendan's and Yeppoon State High - have supplied collectors. The Red Shield Appeal is the Salvation Army's only major fundraising venture every year. Mr Hutton said the appeals had been held for about 10 years. Money raised is used to fund various welfare organisations run by the Salvation Army including shelter homes and drug rehabilitation Mr Hutton said the money was also used to eliminate hardship through food and money donations to families. He said a percentage of money stayed on the Coast for the Yeppoon committee (Mr Hutton, Bruce Barnett, Stan Kent, Noel Smith and Bob Jeacocke) to use as needed. The appeal is an Australia-wide campaign on Sunday, July 24. Mr Hutton said the appeal would only take about an hour to complete. The Coast target is about 56000. Mr Hutton said in past years the Coast had been successful in sometimes surpassing the target. They hope to definitely surpass the target this year. Volunteers and drivers will assemble at St Ursula's College at 9am. For further information phone Mr Hutton on 39 1543 or secretaryBruce Barnett, 39 7654.

Daley wins postal ballot for next poll Yeppoon

in division 1 DIVISION one councillor Lawrie Daley successfully moved a motion to revert division one back to postal ballots for the next triennial elections after a division was called by Cr Glenda Mather. Cr Daley was supported by Crs Kevin Hinz, John Smith, Ellen Cogill, Ron Landsberg, Duncan McDonald and shire chairman Cr John Bowen. Division two councillors Brian Dorey, John Dowie, Maurie Webb, Mike Prior and Roy Wall had the support of division four Cr Glenda Mather. In a see-sawing argument Cr Daley and Cr McDonald said that when the decision for polling booths to be returned in division one and two, they alone had not supported the motion. Cr Daley said he represented the feeling in his division which was against the polling booth. Cr McDonald supported the recision motion because he believed division one had mainly rural-based people who would have to travel long distances to register a vote. Cr Glenda Mather said a lot of anomolies had occurred during the last election. She said weeks were spent researching postal ballots and believed polling booths were best in division one and two. The recision motion was succesful. A foreshadowed motion was then put to councillors. This was to ask the Local Government Minister to approve postal ballots in division one, three and four, and have polling booths in division two. A division was again called and those for were Crs Bowen, Hinz, Smith, Prior, Cogill, Landsberg, Daley and McDonald. Those against were Crs Wall, Mather, Dorey, Dowie and Webb.

• ABOVE: Retiring Livingstone Shire librarian June Foreman handed her keys to new librarian Debbie Burns.

Library life interesting experience THE biggest problem retiring librarian June Foreman will have in the next few months is getting her books back on time. For nearly four years Miss Foreman has been librarian at the Yeppoon Library. She retired on Friday after three-and-three-quarter years. A number of changes have taken place at the shire Library during Miss Foreman's years in charge. She said nearly every section, especially children's and non-fiction areas, had been upgraded. Miss Foreman said when appointed to the job the library had needed a number of improvements. She said this had been an on-going process and still needed continued attention. "I have tried to upgrade the library and increase the standard for the population," she said. "I have tried to cater for all tastes including clubs with special interests. "The writers club was after a certain selection of books. It took us a while to get the books but now they have a variety of topics." Other improvements at Yeppoon Library have been renovations including a new reading room. A new catalogue system, designed for easy references, was also instituted during Miss

Foreman's years. Miss Foreman hasn't always been a librarian. Her family had lived in the Woodbury area for five years but she attended Rockhampton's Central Girls School, then Queen's College Hobart and finished her schooling at Rockhampton Girls Grammar. After completing an Arts Degree at the University of NSW she went to England, returning 18 months later to teach at Sydney's Penshurst High School. Miss Foreman returned to London and taught at a North East London school. She completed a post graduate library diploma and returned to Australia in 1977. On her return she bought a home in Tucker Street, Yeppoon, but took up a teacher/librarian position at Canberra High School. "When the position for a librarian at Yeppoon was advertised it was like a dream," she said. "I never dreamed I would be able to return and live here." Miss Foreman said her time with Yeppoon Library had been an interesting experience. Her favourite section at the library was art and literature.

A.K. Findlay closure marks end of historic chapter on Coast...

PIONEER POOLS Priced from $7500

A CHAPTER in the Capricorn Coast's history will close when A K Findlay's Drapers shuts its doors this week ... closure had been planned a fortnight ago but clearing of stock took longer than expected. Sisters, Dorothy Brown and Phyllis Murphy, have been running the James Street shop since the death of their mother Emily Findlay in May last year. The shop has been open and running since 1921 when A K (Andrew Knight) Findlay and Emily Findlay first opened a boot and saddlery shop. Mrs Brown said harnesses, horsegear, horseshoes in all sizes and boots were among the first items stocked. The Findlays expanded by also offering crockery, linoleum, cut-to-size glass and fish and chips.

Mrs Findlay also branched out into dressmaking, often making the wedding dresses for Coast girls. Tailoringwas done upstairs by a Mr Clifton. Mr and Mrs Findlay's five children all helped by opening-and loaking after different businesses within the shop. Mrs Brown was a hairdresser; Lester Findlay mended and sold bicycles; Keith Lester was involbed in selling and mending sports gear and Henry Findlay looked after the ice works attached to the back of the shop, selling ice and fish. "At one time we sent our fish all over Queensland packed in old Singer sewing-machine boxes," Mrs Brown said. "We supplied ice to Edwards Ice-Cream cart." Herb Rasmussen also made ice-cream at the ice works. "I can still see him churning custard, eggs and milk, and then packing them in ice," Mrs Brown said. She said Mrs Murphy's speciality had bun the shop's feature windows. "Her window displays were the biggest asset in selling our goods," Mrs Brown said. "Phyllis was a genius with the windows and changed them twice a week. One window was artistically arranged in one colour to catch the public's eye. The other windows displayed men's wear, fishing gear and school clothes. Anything we offered in the shop was displayed." It was once claimed that Findlays carries every item you could think of. Mrs Brown said "you name it, we sell it". She also remembers when they opened at nights using gas lights. The Findlay family had a number of setbacks that caused them to start from scratch. Their first shop in 1921 was at the corner of James and Mary Streets, where the Seven Dwarfs Motel is today. Fire destroyed the shop on October 13, 1930 and all that was left standing was a wall. The fire had broken out three shops away and quickly burnt down all in its path. They rebuilt on the same site of the present shop which stands today and called it A K Findlay's Drapers. The ice works was added during the '40s. The family had partnerships in two picture theatres. One partnership, they had with a Mr Jamieson, operated from the Myola Hall screening silent movies. The Regent Theatre for talking pictures was their next family venture. As well as theatre, the Regent was used for skating and dancing. The Regent Theatre became a, sole-family concern but once again tragedy struck in 1941 when fire burnt down the uninsured building. However they rebuilt despite having to struggle and raise funds for a loan from the Bank of New South Wales. Coast people will best remember Emily Findlay as the 'Grand Old Lady' who each day, seated at a counter in the shop, watched Yeppoon grow, and talked to her many friends and customers. She had lived for 52years above her shop. Mrs Brown said the past weeks had been spent talking to many customers ... patrons fo• many years. "Some buy articles just as keep-'1 sakes," she said. A piece of the Coast's history will end when the doors are closed for the last time. Family members continue to work in the area.

SES and Main Roads combine efforts to remove loose rocks

• ABOVE: Yeppoon and Rockhampton SES members had a joint exercise at The Bluff on Saturday ... dislodging rocks. The exercise was organised by the Main Roads Department and the SES.

A COMBINED State Emergency Service Main Roads Department exercise to remove loose rocks from the Bluff has been announced as a success. Main Roads spokesman Peter Evans said the combination of rain and no clay to bind the rocks together, had caused some rocks to be in a precarious position. He said Main Roads handled traffic control while volunteers from Yeppoon and Rockhampton SES groups prised out loose rocks. Attached to safety railings at the Bluff's top, eight men at any one time, lowered themselves over the side to work on the face of the Bluff. They worked under area controllers Bob Jeacocke (Yeppoon) and Rhys Fraser (Rockhampton) from about 8am to 5pm. Mr Jeacocke said this week the exercise had enabled SES volunteers to not only put into practise training but also work with another SES group. He said the value gained from employing cliff rescue and abseiling, to prise out the rocks, had been more valuable than just a practice session. "It was like a real-life situation," he said. "It gave Yeppoon SES volunteers a good chance to also work with Rockhampton SES in a cooperative way." Mr Jeacocke said it was valuable in seeing each other's capabilities. "If a situation occurred where both needed to help in the same exercise, it's reassuring to know we can work together." Mr Evans said two full truckloads had been

removed from the Bluff. He said the rockswere in a precarious position after rain had washed away the clay holding rocks on certain sections of the cliff-face. "It proved to be a successful exercise," he said. "Main Roads hopes to co-ordinate future work on the Bluff, when needed, with the SES." Mr Jeacocke said he hoped similar exercises could be held. He said the group would willingly help Main Roads if they needed to repeat the Bluff exercise.

The Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation is running the competition in an effort to have an "original and different idea" to promote the area. CCTO management committee spokesman Joan Noud said the logo/slogan could be used as a screen print on a t-shirt that would be available to consumers. "Our main market is tourists," she said. "We require a design that will not only grab their attention but also persuade them to purchase at least one t-shirt. "The finished product should appeal to all age groups." Mrs Noud said the only stipulation was that the words Yeppoon and Capricorn Coast have to be used and no more than two colours used in the artwork. Seafood and Eat It proprietors Ross and Ann Dickson have donated the prizemoney. The competition closes Monday, July 18. All entries will be collected on Tuesday, July 19. Winners names will be published in the Capricorn Coast Mirror on Friday, July 22. Mrs Noud said if the CCTO used two different entries to gather the logo/slogan and artwork the prizemoney would be divided between the winning entries.

spent the first week of the second semester working outside the school system. St Ursula College work experience organiser Veronica Pedwell and special work experience assistants spent weeks placing the girls into jobs they would enjoy. This week I interviewed 15 girls who worked at businesses in Yeppoon. By some of the comments received many girls were interested in the work they did and hope to continue it as a possible career option. The range of areas available for work experience was enormous ... butchers, chef's assistants, hairdressers, bank tellers, receptionists, dental and hospital assistants, fashion designers and kindergarten, pre-school and primary school teachers and I did journalism. Overall, everyone thought the work experience week was beneficial in selecting the right career. However, although businesses were more than happy to accept students, a few of the girls said that in some cases, it can be a burden for the businesses to keep the students occupie especially when they are busy. Year 11 student Gabrielle Callaghan, while working at Christensen's dental clinic said "it's really enjoyable and interesting". When asked why she chose that area for work experience she was to the point ... "I like teeth!" "I was able to broaden my knowledge of the work involved in dentistry, the day-to-day running of a business and the long hours involved," Gabrielle said. Year 10 student Carina Schmidt while working at Westpac Bank said "I'm enjoying my work experience mainly because they have organised a programme for me". "The hours arc long compared with school and I'm not quite used to them yet. "I think the work experience programme is good because even though I like working here, I know I don't want to be a banker." Carina's feeling was the situation in some cases. Through work experience the girls realised that their built-up expectations could never be fulfilled in that particular area of work. This may sound negative but the girls said work experience had helped them to eliminate • CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

Work experience the spark that

starts serious career thoughts • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 that type of work from their uncertain list of career options. For others, work experience was the spark that set them off on their way to seriously considering that type of work as a chosen career. Year 11 student Mekylie Wells at the Commonwealth Bank, was a fine example of contentment. "It's great here. The people around me are really friendly," she said. "They have a course for work experience kids here that shows them all the different aspects of the job. I never thought about taking it as a career, but now I have second thoughts." Fumie Matsuda, year 10, working as a chef's assistant at Capricorn Iwasaki Resort said work experience was good because she wants to be a chef. Year 11 student Penny Shepherd was happy at Stewart and Brumm Chemists. "It doesn't get boring because there's a bit of everything to do," she said. Penny was about the only girl who didn't consider the working hours as a "culture shock". "The working hours are good!" Yuko Yamada, year 10, was thrilled with her -veek at Yeppoon State Primary School. 'I love teaching! At the moment, I'm sure I want to be a teacher." Yuko was particularly interested in the lower grades. She was teaching year three students under the supervision of Mrs Edwards. "Kids are so cute. I especially enjoy taking a group of children and reading to them." Ronda Heslin, year 10, was also a teacher's aide at the State School. "The only thing I can't hack is the naughty little kids. And that's one major knock-back!" she said.

• ABOVE: Rachel Blake of Yeppoon State Primary School was seeking advice from ' ,ear 10 student Ronda Heslin for her maths work.

Year 11 student Kylie Sheppard worked at the Yeppoon Hospital. "I've always wanted to do something medical," she said. Kylie thought her work experience was directly related to the type of work involved in the career she wanted. In the mornings Kylie worked with a physiotherapist and a radiographer in the afternoon. "I like being involved in helping the public. It gives you a lot of job satisfaction," she said. Melissa Richards, year 10, worked at the ANZ bank. "I like it, but at times it's a bit nerve-racking. Everything has to be perfect. If one single number goes wrong, the whole lot does!" she said. Melissa introduced another interesting opinion of work experience. "If you take an extreme interest in the job, you could possibly be offered a job later on ... if you're lucky," she said. Year 10 student Amanda Richardson completed her week at Kristin's Hair Design in Savemore Centre. "The people I work with are really nice. I get to meet lots of different and interesting people. The only low-point is washing hair. she said. "Great!", sums up year 10 student Natalie Pengilly's stay at Bayview Towers Motel. "It's so interesting and pleasant and there's so many things to do," she said. Natalie's only set-back was her feet. "After a while, your feet ache from standing all the time." Natalie's guide, Margaret Olive, said it was not possible to go into depth with everything, but a quick look over everything gave Natalie a better idea of all the workings of the business. Year 11 student Dominique Rosine has completed a week at Yeppoon Butchers. "I love cutting up meat and there's so much to do here," she said. Dominique was caught in-the act ... of sausage linking. Apparently, she has a remarkable talent for linking sausages ... a task that usually takes a lot of practice. Sandra Fondacaro, year 10, worked at Capricorn Coast Fashions. "Everyone here is really easy to get along with. I do a lot of work with materials and sewing but I was expecting more art to be involved in the job. "The worst thing is sweeping the floor, but someone has to do it," she said. Brigette Breutmann, year 10, spent her work experience at Yeppoon State Pre-school. 'I get along with all the staff here and I love all the kids too. I enjoy their company and they enjoy mine. "Some of them even gave me presents they had made," she said. Finally, I enjoyed my work experience thoroughly. I worked with the most fantastically friendly, intelligent and interesting staff at the Mirror. (They made me say that!...only joking.) While I was interviewing the girls, triggerhappy photographer Rhodes was taking photos of, not only the girls, but cars, flowers, chickens and anything he could feast his eyes on. All the work experience girls were thrilled to have their photo taken. I genuinely loved it at the Mirror and I dreaded Friday, the day when my work experience was over!

The Best Way to enjoy Meat!'

KANANGRA Family Restaurant owners Hugh and Liz Pilbury celebrated their Tanby Road business' fifth anniversary with more than 90 customers and friends on Sunday. Kanangra opened as a function lounge on July 3, 1983. It changed to a family restaurant when they found there was not enough demand for functions. Mr Pilbury said at first people had been sceptical about Kanangra's chances of survival but it had grown from strength to strength. Kanangra has also become a popular setting for garden wedding ceremonies and afterward as the reception hall. Mr Pilbury said at least 10 wedding ceremonies had been held in their garden. With five years behind them, Hugh and Liz Pilbury have no additonal plans for the restaurant ... at the moment. "We have no major plans except to put everything we make back into the business. When we first arrived in Yeppoon we were on our way around Australia ... this is as far as we got," he said. That was 10 years ago. "We liked the place and thought it had enormous potential," he said. "We owned the Reef 'n'Beef for about five years before opening Kanangra. "When we eventually sell the business we will build and settle in the area. This is where we've made our money and this is where we plan to stay."

* By Natasha Higgins LIFE on a tall ship is very different and much harder than I'd ever imagined. A mixture of sailing, cleaning, waking at ungodly hours, sea sickness, rotten weather, nervousness, pride and friendship sums up what the 10 day•voyage on which I was a member of the youth crew, was all about. It is a time in my life I will never forget. How could I forget the first two days, which I, along with most of the 24 youth crew, spent hanging over the side of the ship just wanting to go home. Until then I never realised I could feel so sick. However, we all stuck it out and by the third day we were all eager to work and do whatever we were told to. It was just as well we were so motivated, because many hardships were yet to set in. The voyage, from Mackay to Townsville, was supposed to have been the best one of the year with regard to the weather. In actual fact, it would have been one of the worst, with gale force winds and overcast' skies for much of the 10 days. Although we welcomed our last two days of sunshine, the previous weather gave us excellent sail training conditions. Before I set off for the 'Young Endeavour', I really had no idea what exactly I would be doing. I thought it would be a lot of fun, but it was more work than I'd thought. Our day started at 6.40am with a very loud wakey, wakey over the PA system. This was followed by a session of physical training, and also a swim off the side of the boat if we were anchored. After breakfast, we then had to clean the ship. Every single piece of furniture or deck had to be spotless, and this was rather difficult on a ship 35m long. I'm sure mywatch, consisting of four girls and four boys got the worst section, with both the girls and boys toilets, the boys cabin, and one of the girls cabins. (the girls were lucky enough to have two six-berth cabins whereas the boys had only one 12 berth cabin) It was pretty disgusting cleaning the bathrooms because theywere absolutely filthy after each day, and filled with wet towels and clothes. It became even worse-when one of the toilets got blocked. Then the bathroom smelt even more, which didn't help when you were already feeling a little queezy from being stuck below deck, surrounded by the smell of Mr Sheen, Jif, Brasso, Exit Mould, Spray 'n' Wipe. The rest of the day was spent sailing the ship, which mightn't sound like much work, but it definitely is. It takes around 28 people to man the sails when the ship is tacking. I came home with very rough hands from pulling the ropes, and bruises all over me from working. My greatest achievement during the voyage was climbing aloft. When you are standig on deck, it is very daunting to look up and see a

yard, 40m above you, which you will be standing against. Just climbing to the first yard when were anchored was a great feeling, but this was nothing compared to climbing to the topgallant, (the top yard) with the ship rolling up and down, and furling the sail at the same time. It took me a while to make it to the top, but once I did it was a terrific feeling. Everyone of us felt as if we had achieved something great. The friendship which existed among the youth crew and the permanent crew made the voyage the success it was. By the end of the voyage, it seemed as if I had known every one of my ship mates all my life. Leaving all my new friends was very hard, especially since we all knewwe might never see each other again. The permanent crew really made the work a lot easier and more fun, so it was thanks to them, that we enjoyed ourselves as much as we did. Being a member of the youth crew also meant getting up in the middle of the night to go on watch. At first I had no idea what we were watching for, but I began to see how important it was. We had to steer the ship, make sure there was nothing in our path, and check for flooding or anything strange. In the last two days, the youth crew actually took over the roles of the crew and sailed the ship from point to point. This was very nerve-racking, but exciting, especially when we successfully reached our destination. Another limitation on board was the use of fresh water. We were only allowed 60 second showers, and at one stage showers were not allowed for a few days because the water supply was running low. Even though I felt pretty — grotty most of the time, I survived. When I say I had five showers in 10 days everyone looks at me in horror and wonder how I survived, but it is really quite easy. It is just another feature of life on a tall ship.

• ABOVE and AT RIGHT: Mechanics Mark Stevenson and John Welsh at work and the new premises for Cooee Bay Marine.

Cooee Bay Marine a $300,000 investment VINCE and LESLEY Welsh have backed their faith in Yeppoon with more than $300,000 which they have invested in Cooee Bay Marine. Nearly 10 years after originally buying into the business, .they have bought their own premises and moved to 49 Tanby Road. The $300,000 involved was only a "quick estimate" ... but it's a conservative one. Mr Welsh said he knew there was more than $150,000 invested in premises alone. "Then there's the stock; the outboard motors; the boats; the huge range of bits and pieces without which boats couldn't put to sea. And then there's the tools and manuals ... specialised tools and manuals that mean repair jobs can be carried out properly on the variety of motors that power boats. So while it seems like only a small step from the corner of Tanby Road and McBean Street ... it was a giant step for their family business because of the huge costs involved. Their new premises are the former Yeppoon Kitchens building. It offers more showroom area plus a bigger and better workshop. In addition, for the boat owner who does not like reversing with a trailer attached, the new Cooee Bay Marine premises offers a driveway that circumnavigates the entire building. Vince Welsh said this week he and Lesley had given many hours of serious thought to their expansion ... "it was a big step," he said. "The new premises became the logical way to go because we feel Yeppoon, and our business, will grow. More room for display, for sales and for repairs are a necessity if we are going to offer the Capricorn Coast the best boating facilities available." They moved to the new premises on July 1 ... exactly eight years to the day after they moved from Cooee Bay to McBean Street. This, their third business address, will be their last. "We finally have premises with everything we need," Mr Welsh said. We have fenced and floodlit the grounds for security and there's a display area for boats at the front which means potential boat owners can see what's available day and night. "We have our retail shop stretching almost completely across the front of the building and there's plenty of room for display in the carpeted area. There's so much on display that boat owners can browse around the shelves looking for ideas or they can come straight to the counter and ask for what they need. "The display area leads directly to the workshop and this concreted, fully enclosed area provides better working area and even more security for customers' equipment. "The work area can be reached from the drive-through driveway so customers can drive up, unhitch, and drive away. It's better for them and better for us."

Vince and Lesley Welsh know COOEE BAY MARINE principals Vince and Lesley Welsh believe in the Capricorn Coast ... that's why they shop locally. When it was time to move from McBean Street to 49 Tanby Road they considered the renovations involved and immediately contacted Coast trades people. "It's the only way to go if you are serious about the area in which you live," Mr Welsh said this week. "I'm in business on the Coast and I want people to shop locally with me ... it's only logical that I should support other Coast business people." The renovations were big business. The old Yeppoon Kitchens building provided the right shell but the interior was past its prime. New windows were installed at the front to provide a better display area with natural lighting; the previous small office areas were demolished and turned into a huge open display area. That meant new wall cladding, new ceiling, new lighting, new paint, new counter and new carpet. And that was just the start. The

wiring was changed to accommod Outside, the driveways and front E and levelled. A huge security fence the building itself was beautified. The premises were painted insi, painted. And there was a deadline. "W, Yeppoon Kitchens was delayed wil to be up and running by July 1,"A "By using Coast tradesmen we co speed. We gave them dates to finish This meant there were none of tho one tradesman running late and ev him. "We wanted the place painted ins and we had a definite date from

Cooee Bay Marine can boast it does all work on the premises

Congratulates Vince Welsh on the new Cooee Bay Marine Showroom


Cooee Bay Marine Relocation Feature

COOEE BAY MARINE proudly boasts that all work is done on the premises ... and Vince Welsh backs up the boast with his own credentials as an engineer plus his two fully -trained mechanics and his equipment. "We don;t have to send work out because we have everything we need on the premi ses," he said this week. "We do all our own reclamation of shafts and engine rebores and rebuilds right here. That not only saves time, it means a customer can see the what is happening at any stage of the job. "That means peace of mind. They see the problem when the motor is stripped down; they see the new parts ... they have total confidence in the repairs when they're out on the water. That means a lot ... to them and to us." Cooee Bay Marine carries out fibreglass repairs and all forms of welding. For the uninitiated that means MIG, TIG and Oxy welding ... and that means aluminium welding, too! Mr Welsh knows what he's talking about when it comes to welding. He was manager of Murex, a division of CIG, and was responsible for introducing hard facing electrodes to mines throughout Queensland. And if you want to know about lubricants ask him about his five years as area manager for Castrol Oils! Cooee Bay Marine staff Mark Stevenson and

John Welsh are not just mechanics. They're factory-trained outboard mechanics ... and school isn't a thing of the past. They attend regular classes held by both Evinrude and Yamaha to keep abreast of the latest techniques involved with the new, high-tech motors powering boats today.

Insurance important COOEE BAY MARINE is Capricorn Coast agent for Club Marine Boat Owners Insurance. That means boat owners can insure their craft locally and have it assessed locally should they have a claim. "That's important today," Mr Welsh said. "In an age of technology it's strange that customers have not always benefited from the move to computers. "Local offices have been closed in many fields and more and more, people are finding it harder to get what they want as quickly as they used to years ago when they dealt with 'the bloke around the corner'. "That's why I became the Club Marine Boat Owners Insurance agent. I wanted to be able to sell marine equipment and also offer insurance on the spot." Mr Welsh said no one would even consider taking a new car out of a showroom without having it insured ... but too many take a risk with their boat. "One claim is enough to convince any boat owner they need insurance," he said.

Both met the

deadline. We needed power so that the transition from McBean Street could occur smoothly ... the power was waiting for us. "We couldn't move boats onto the land until the earthworks were completed. They were on time. It was the same with every job. Mr Welsh said he had always believed in the benefits of dealing with Coast trades people ... but the move to new premises reinforced his resolve to always deal locally. "We had our problems with the move because it was such a rush but each time a problem came up the tradesman who could fix it was just a phone call or short drive away," he said. "They knew me, I knew them, and I was welcome in their home to discuss any problem that came up, whether it was early morning, late at night or on the weekend. We talked it over, made a few changes ... and got on with it. "How could I have done that with people 50km away?"

MUCH as Vince Welsh and the Cooee Bay Marine mechanics like working on outboards .they prefer to sell customers equipment that they only see when it's time for a service. "That's why we sell Evinrude and Yamaha," Mr Welsh said this week. "We know the motors and have confidence in them. That means we can look a customer in the eye and recommend the products we sell. "We like working on motors, that's our job, but we know our customers want to put to sea with total confidence, and that means they want total reliability in the best motor pushing them along." Mr Welsh said Cooee Bay Marine not only sold Evinrude and Yamaha but also was an authorised warranty motor service centre. "That means there's no hassles with legitimate claims," he said. "If something does go wrong with a motor we fix it, get the boat back in the water where it belongs, and we are backed up by the manufacturers." To carry out any work requires tools, but outboards require specialised tools. Cooee Bay Marine has thousands of dollars tied up in tools and manuals. And they're not just for outboards ... the business is also authorised to work on Yamaha motor cycles and diesel engines.

Service means wide range of goods in stock • SERVICE is a word that is heard a lot at Cooee Bay Marine. It means more than qualified people behind the counter. Service also means having what people need ... in stock, not a day or two away by transport carrier. Vince and Lesley Welsh have put a lot of time, effort and money into building up the stock at their business. They know their customers want to look at a range of goods, choose the one that best suits their needs ... and take it away with them. That's why Cooee Bay Marine has a big range of outboard motors in stock ... as well as bearings, seals, V-belts, pulleys, motorcycle tyres, marine radio, anchors, chain, shackles, oils, batteries and you name it. And, if what their customers want isn't in stock, it can be transported in as fast as carriers can deliver. Service also means being an outlet for items that aren't needed every day but are such necessities when they are needed. "That's why we hire and sell Handi trailers," Mr Welsh said. We have customers who own their own trailers but still hire from us because their own won't do a specific job such as moving a vehicle or moving the contents of a house."

Capricorn Coast Mirror July 15 July 21, 1988 - 13 ALL but two of the soloists who performed at Tuesday's Yeppoon Pensioners League social were women. The two exceptions were Alf Marcombe who sang two oldies ... Pal of my Cradle Days and Mistakes and Bill Shuttlewood who rendered Kathleen and Painting the Clouds with Sunshine. And the female performers included nonagenarian Sarah Hall who sang Paper Roses and Mexacali Rose and octogenarian Lucy O'Brien who chose Smile Awhile and Let the rest of the World go by as her offering. To her own accompaniment, Lynda Leech sand Love's Roundabout and Eidelweiss and acted as accompanist for Dot Close and Maureen Dinsdale, the former singing Careless Hands and Lara's Theme and the latter ... The Way We Were and Until the Twelfth of Never. Compere Marge Cornell's dup was 0 Promise Me and The Place where I worship and assistant compere Phyl Rumpf sweetly sang Love will find a Way and I'll walk Alone. Ruby Harris contributed Whispering Grass and Just a little Fond Reflection and joined Marge Cornell in a duo of numbers. Yeppoon mezzo-soprano Beryl Dawson was seen in a new role when she recited Walk with me for a Perch and a Rood and Oh no, I've got a cold. In a second appearance, after sampling the delicious afternoon tea, Beryl recited the appropriate I wish I'd looked after me Teeth and showed her prowess as a raconteur with her description of an octopus stuck fast to a kitchen table. Joe McIntyre was at his best in his telling of The Stockman's Tale. Marge Cornell teamed with Les Wessels in a piano-saxophone duet and with Tony Ceff in a piano-clarinet duet. The mouth organ is a tuneful instrument and George Cooper is one who get the best out of it as he proved with his medley of popular numbers. The singing group, The Entertainers, with Lynda Leech as accompanist, made two appearances and in their second offering with a background of the Australian and Queensland flags and each holding a miniature Australian flag Sang Australia. Dancing interspersed the programme and the monte c,arlo was won by Doris Sowden and Alice Benn. It was the last social for 1987/88 and compere Marge Cornell thanked all who had assisted her and assistant compere to make the monthly socials of the past year so successful and entertaining. Gerberas dominated the flower arrangement on the town hall stage and were supplied by Beryl Connor, Nancy Devantier and Phyl Rumpf. At the social end the flowers were given to the audience. Absent from last Tuesday's social because of hospitalisation was regular pianist for the socials, Norm Brisbin. Holders of lucky door numbers were Thelma Leigh, Marj Howland, Dulcie Cooper, Ann Lehmann (Yeppoon) and Kate Setter of Rockhampton. Winners of fruit and vegetable trays given by Dick and Betty Tyrer were won by Henry McCallum and Pat King of Yeppoon and a third try given by league went to Emu Park's Lynda Leech. *** HOY every Friday, Emu Park CWA hall at 9.30am. The dollar cost includes morning tea.

HAVE you had any little girls (and some bigger ones) knocking on your door with biscuits? It's girl guide biscuit time again and the price is still the same. There are only 90 cartons of 16 packets each here on the Coast for the girls to sell, so if you like the biscuits and haven't seen any yet, ring 33 6490 after hours. (That number is okay for joining up too). *** BUSH wattle and posters decorated the Yeppoon CWA hall for the International luncheon. A display of Australiana books, old photos and memorabilia including an exquisite silver serviette ring. It was shown by a niece of Andrew Barton. May Bailey recited a poem she wrote for the occasion ... Ode to Australia. Mr Robinson, dressed in stockman's clothes complete with Akubra and stockwhip, recited The Man from Snowy River. Guest speaker was Betty Cosgrove of Emu Park who spoke about Yeppoon's early days and amused guests with anecdotes of the bathing rules at the turn of the century. Jess Halberstater won a potted orchid in flower donated by Mrs Gibbins. The branch meeting was held after the luncheon and president Penny Stephens welcomed 28 members and two visitors. A gift was presented by the group as well as by the Friday morning craft ladies to Vera Walls who is moving to Bundaberg after living on the Coast for 12 years. *** EVERYWHERE you look at the Senior Citizens Benevolent Housing Society's gingham afternoon on July 23 there will be gingham and it is a cent sale too.

Capricorn Coast Mirror July 15 - July 21, 1988 - 17 BEING a broken nose from yesteryear, now on the sporting scrap heap, I joined with others to watch the most recent State of Origin league game. What I found extremely annoying, during the game, was some of the commercial station commentators using one liners 'flogged' straight from the USA ... 'touchdowns', 'backto-back titles', 'scores being all locked up', and `having a real ball game on our hands'. I must stop for a moment before this spasm to be sick materialises into something a little more solid. These commentators, choosing to 'flog' words from the US at the expense of our own Australian vernacular, by their repeated deliverance on national television, ensure that the viewers (younger ones primarily), in time en-

'Broken nose' from yesteryear has complaint compass this as part of their normal vocabulary. • If you think this point a little trite, I would suggest you do some reading in advertising psychology. Other sporting bodies are not immune ... Broncos, being a Californian wild horse and the basketballers use of 'D' fence. From an etymologist's stance our language, admittedly based on historical amalgamations, now faces an accelerated barrage from television and videos. Any Australian colloquialism and character is now rapidly being expunged and replaced by fast talking clap-trap ... whatever expression that happens to be the 'in' saying for the month.

I believe this one-way haemorrhage of the first character will progress from verbal invasion to cultural rape (as seen in indigenous Hawaii post 1958). Any one can imitate, sadly it appears few have the strength to be themselves. The other night I had a dream. The year was 2013 (25 years on) Murdoch's sky network which started in the late 1980s, now has the world under one umbrella. Australia is now only a relay station for programs that are beamed direct from the US 24 hours a day. We in Australia are allowed half an hour per day input for local events. We all sit in front of the tube chewing and

watching Alf reruns. We wear our grid-iron sloppy joes, beaver hats, with Chip and Bud on the bean bags eating burgers with ketchup. As long as our yen is deposited into our credit card system each fortnight we don't care about much, not much at all. Some older Australians may see the point of this letter, sadly you will all too soon be gone, and what will replace you? We will be merely a collection of people ... not a nation with a unique character. It then occurred to me all things have a price ... especially apathy. - J Shepherd, Yeppoon.

Dismay over charity title I AM writing regarding the Livingstone Shire Bicentenary Queen Quest. Last January we were first told of this quest through the papers and how the bicentenary committee was looking for a young lady to represent the Shire as Bicentenary Queen. In addition to this, these girls could also enter the charity section to raise funds for the charity of their choice. I believe there are nine entrants and five of these are fundraising. Anybody who has been involved with fundraising knows that although very rewarding, it is also very time-consuming and hard work for the entrant, her sponsor, family and friends. I would like to congratulate this charity section. To my dismay, I have heard that the winner of the charity title is eliminated from the Bicentenary Queen judging so as to spread the prizes. I fail to see how this quest can be valid if only eight of the nine girls are judged. After all, there can be only one charity winner ... the one raising the most money. If, by some chance, she is also chosen Bicentenary Queen, then she darn well deserves both titles. I feel both sections should be completely independant of each other. I have also heard that the judging is to be done by southern media personalities over the final few days of the quest (the end of this month). I would hope also that there has been several judges in the local community over the past six months noting the entrants' conduct, bicententary functions attended and the support given by each to the bicentenary committee that has also worked very hard. I feel this period is probably more important than the final few days. In closing I wish to apologise to the committee if my information is incorrect. However, I would like to know if we are to have eight or nine young ladies in the judging for the title of Livingstone Shire Bicentenary Queen? ' - Name withheld at writer's request.

Mather: post rates in time AT the June general meeting of council there were several requests for discounts to be allowed on rate payments which arrived at the council chambers after the due date. On two occasions the ratepayers were assured by two separate employees of Australia Post (not of the Capricorn Coast region) that their letters would arrive by a specified date. (One of these letters was 'priority paid', so one would- or should have felt certain guarantee.) Unfortunately, on both occasions; this was not the case. No doubt these people have gone to a great deal of trouble to gather support for their claims, only to be bitterly disappointed. I can assure all readers that councillors receive no joy in refusing such requests. The shire clerk has stated that: "Council is unable to allow discount as to do so would be in contravention of the provisions of Section 27 (2) of the Local Government Act." Most of us work hard for our money, and none of us can afford to risk losing it through an error of judgement. I urge all ratepayers not to leave their payments until the last week (and surely not the last day - if mailing them). Mail services are not always predictable - one must make allowances for delays through accidents, strikes and honest human error. So for those who tend to lag behind I say, don't get caught, post in plenty of time, or you might find yourself out of pocket, and very disappointed for the experience. - Cr Glender Mather, P 0 Box 5186, RMC.

Level Yeppoon and fill bay? Al-TER reading the ideas being put forward for the improvement of Yeppoon by means of including a satellite town, which surely would have to be self-sufficient as regards shopping and all other services, I would like to put forward an idea that there are those who may find it not only acceptable but agreeable. Yeppoon is hilly and has headlands. Why not level out the entire area and dump the fill into Shoal Bay? All those places like Wreck Point, Tanby Head and the Bluff do is to grow uncommercial trees and shrubs. When these points have been levelled the ground will then be available for the erection of high rise apartment blocks. When Shoal Bay has been filled from the Bennetts

_J 0 protuberances, then there are a number of alternatives: create a canal development that would outshine anything on the Gold Coast; build an International Airport; build a branch railway line from the Caves, along Limestoilz Creek to • somewhere at the back of St Brendan's where it could then join up with the pineapple line, which would be extended along from the present station through James Street and out along the reclaimed land, where there could be a coal loading facility that would allow Mr Hancock to run his coal trains out to his coal carrying ships to Bulgaria, Rumania, Ruritania and Hertzgovnia. In fact with a little imagination Yeppoon could be not only altered out of all recognition, but could also become a City, with a Lord Mayor. - Norman F Crawford, 6 Natalie Place, Kinka Beach, 4703.

Why a tribute to Bon Scott? RE La Bamba's ad in the Capricorn Coast Mirror July 1-7, 1988. Why a tribute to Bon Scott? A man who travelled the airways to the tune of Highway to Hell - with No Stop Signs. Sad thing is no one did stop Bon Scott and he died in his own vomit, taking many young fans with him on that Highway to Hell of demonic worship and drug and alcohol abuse. Come on La Bamba, our young people deserve something better than this. - S Belot, Cooee Bay.

Outrage over teacher cuts YOU may remember the then Premier stating in -last year's Budget speech that teacher numbers would be frozen for the next 12 months. What an outrage, we thought at the time! That means there won't be enough teachers to complete the long overdue class size reduction programme or to cater for the extra enrolments expected. Treasury, however, didn't allocate enough money even for this pitiful promise to be kept. The result was teacher numbers were allowed to run down to a low point in January of 740 below July 1987 levels. At the end of the financial year we were still down 189 teachers although student enrolments were up by 4000. In spite of hisvision of excellence, Mr Ahern has not corrected Treasury's mistake so the extra 189 teachers could be employed. Education Minister Brian Littleproud is now fighting hard to ensure last year's budget disaster is not repeated. Teachers and parents support Mr Littleproud in this struggle and are demanding an extra $279 million to bring Queensland education spending up to the national average. We should also demand the immediate employment of 189 extra teachers so last year's promises can be belatedly kept. Let's hope if education does get a better deal in the forthcoming budget, as Mr Ahern has promised, Treasury will get its sums right. - Queensland Teachers' Union president Mary Kelly.

Emu Pk School 100 in 1990 THE Emu Park State Primary School centenary will be celebrated on July 7, 1990. The committee is interested in establishing contact with any former students and teaching staff with a view to obtaining as much information as possible, particularly relating to the period prior to 1946 when all school records. were lost in a fire. We would appreciate hearing from persons with old photos or memorabilia pertaining to the school. Contact can be made direct to the School (079) 396 204, or to the principal, Emu Park State School, Fountain Street, Emu Park and to chairperson, Emu Park State School Centenary Committee, Evelyn Street, Zilzie, (079) 396 618. - Greg Richmond, Emu Park.

PUPPY FOUND IN BIN A German Shepherd cross eight week old puppy was found in an industrial bin on the Emu Park beachfront and is now at the animal refuge in Rockhampton. Shire dog control officer Maureen Frost was notified by a person who heard the puppy whimpering. "If you don't want your dog or puppy please don't dump it," Mrs Frost said. "Just phone the council works depot, 39 3622, and I will arrange to have the dog collected." Dogs in the pound this week: male Blue Cattle dog; white female Ridgeback cross; female black and brown cross Rottweiler and a brown Cattle cross Shepherd.

Travel-free training for Coast 3 THERE were more rewards and opportunities for Capricorn Coast basketball juniors when three U/14 representatives were invited to attend a Queensland Basketball State Development Camp. Nashua Harris, Scott Leslie and Brett Shackleton won't have to travel because the September camp will be at the Cooee Bay Fitness camp. Following Jason Moody's sucess in making the U/16 Queensland training squad these opportunities not only benefit the player but ultimately all of Coast basketball. Kelvin Smith played in the U/16 in Mackay but was not listed in last week's paper. After the first pre-season games it was obvious the marked improvement in all the players who had participated in the repesentative teams. The 1989 classics will be far stronger than '88. Central Queensland Zone will hold a prelimary referees clinic in two weeks (July 31) and any hopeful participants should ring Alan Thomas 39 6687. Next week ends the pre-season games for all division and competition starts in earnest culminating in the grand finals in November.

St James bowls ST JAMES Indoor Bowling Club will play Singing Ship Indoor Bowling Club in the first competition for the Hartwig Shield on July 20. Norm and Eva Gardner are holding their triples on July 18 and members are asked to be early for the competition. Last Thursday afternoon members wished happy birthday to Jean Preston, Ivy Philp and Michelle Ahern. Joan Howe, Nita and Norm Bishop, visitors from the South, are holding triples at St James on August 4. To top off a busy month president Jack Rumpf will be holding his triples on August 18. Last Monday night the Cock of the Walk and Hen Bird were played ... with Ken and Lois Crockett retaining their titles. In the recent Wide Bay and District Association Championships, with 15 districts competing, Gordon and Ivy Mallory were pleased to win the Rinks of Four consolation with two teenagers from Redcliffe club, Sharon and Gayle Thomas. The four defeated a seasoned Maryborough— team in the final and it is only the second time they have played together. A great effort for the 13 and 14 year olds who played skips. St James Indoor Bowls is held Monday at 7pm and Thursday fpm and visitors are always welcome.

Patroness' Day at Emu Park LADIES, visitors and members got together for Emu Park Bowls Club patroness Dot McKenzie's day on Wednesday, July 6. The green was slow but there was plenty of good bowling. Toucher prizes went to the North Rockhampton team of Jan Rudolph, Stella Meil, June Cheers and Audrey Beanwith a score of 20 touchers. The spiders were won by Vera Wilson of Yeppoon and•Lyn Strow of RBC. Trophies out of the box went to: first, Joyce Lowry, Nell Williams, Alsia McNight, Mary Breadsell of Dee Club; second, CQ team of Nell Paroz, Loris Cross, Mavis Holland, Thelma Bell; third, Marje Wilson, Joy Stewart, May Baglow, Peg Kluver from Emu Park.

A set of plates, donated by Joy Stewart, was won by Mary Hannah of Welfare club and the fruit tray went to Bev Farrow of Emu Park. Patroness Dot appreciated the support of ladies president Betty Allen, committee and members of EPLBC and her sister Joyce, all of whom contributed to the success of the day.

A grade Aussie Rules 'brilliant'

* By Darren Goody. CAP COAST Rugby Union team improved its chances of a finals berth with a sloppy 13 points to nil win over Mt Morgan at Yeppotm on Saturday. Coasts forwards dominated the slippery conditions and continually gave Coasts' backline the opportunity to score. All the points were scored in the first half. Tireless lock forward, Brad Flynn registered first points with a push over try. Coast five eight Nick Corbett was the only other try scorer. Corbett darted and weaved through Mt Morgan's defence to dive over the line and underneath the posts. Dave Ruck converted one try and landed a penalty goal. Coast now gains two points to be one game behind leaders Colts and is equal second with Institute.

IN REVERSE to the Yeppoon Aussie Rules game the previous week Yeppoon played brilliant football to defeat Boyne Island - Tannum Sands proving that with purpose and the right attitude they can defeat any team in the CAFL. Final scores were 27-26-188 to BITS 6-3-39. Jay Blake must be congratulated, not only for his 100 games with the club, but for the way he played and inspired the other players in the first half with a lot of open running, strong marking and accurate kicking. Nick Basham gave height and rebound to strengthen the backline. He, along with tireless Taylor turned many BITS attacks into Yeppoon goals. The ferret (Steve Burns) played another strong ball getting game at centre and gave many opportunities to the players around him. He and Boydy sorted out the head hunters from BITS with strong straight body work and in doing so allowed Cruickshank, Wigginton and Tomkins to break free to completely destroy the BITS defence enabling Rubber Legs (Munro) with his "four o'clock eye rings" to kick nine goals.

A great team effort of good running football with some purpose and plan, and all players must be congratulated. Best players: Steve Burns (the mug); B Cruickshank and M Taylor shared the Pacific Dinner for two. Troy Tomkins won the Bay Vacationer award. Goalkickers: P Munro 9, M Wigginton 3, B Motton, M Taylor, M Kavanagh, D Bibby and Jay Blake 2 each, B Cruickshank, B Munn, T Tomkins and D Newton 1 each. The reserve game was disappointing, showing that few players displayed the right skills to make the Swans worthy of the finals. There were few winners around the field and the BITS took this one out 7-5-47 to 6-5-41. J R Heathcote, C Jamieson, Paul Harris, Rob Gardner, David Chapman, John Pidgeon and Kev Allery were the few winners to keep Yeppoon in the game at all. The game was a battle of the back lines with neither side having dominant forward lines. Goalkickers: J Pidgeon, D Wetzler, R Gardner, L Bowden and C Jamieson one each. Best players: mug to D Chapman, Pacific dinner for two, Paul Harris, Kev Allery, Rob Gardner and C Jamieson.

Junior rules 'delight to watch' YEPPOON Aussie Rules juniors had a full day of football and it was enjoyed by the few supporters present. "With so much talent among their youngsters I find it hard to believe that more parents aren't interested in cheering on the lads," the publicity officer said. The under 1 ls were a delight to watch and defeated Parkhurst. Best players for Yeppoon were Owen Battersby, Cameron Blake, Callen Barnes and Andrew Mackie. Coach Col Jamieson is pleased with his boys and his advice for improvement is for the boys to pick up the ball more, rather than kicking it off the ground or tapping it on. The under 13 team was soundly beaten, 12-779 to 2-4-16. The Parkhust boys have improved and showed flaws in the Coast defence. The Coast side is still on top of the ladder and with determined effort and training could win the grand final.

Goals: Doug Edwards 1, Shane Campbell 1. Best players: Doug Edwards, Nathan Farlow, Cameron Blake, David Lawton and Peter Geier. Under 15 was beaten ... Parkhurst 12-14-86 to Yeppoon 4-7-31. Goalkickers were Adrian Deurloo 2, Chad Gibbons and Nathan Wigginton 1 each. Best players: Dale Wetzler, D Liddell, C Lawer, D Caddy, S Dungey and C Gibbons. The under 17 side was the Coast winning team for the day and proved too strong for Parkhurst, doubling the score 13-14-92 to 6-743. Yeppoon started slowly but soon settled to play a good strong game proving the players ability to play as a team. Best players were A Belot, S Bird, D Roberts, T Thompson, B Murray and D Franke. Goalkickers were numerous but not recorded.

A grade league semi-final spot * By Darren Goody. YEPPOON A grade Rugby League team seems set for a major semi-final spot after an easy win over Emerald on Sunday at Yeppoon. Emerald nearly caused an upset as the team pushed Yeppoon to the limit. The score changed several times before Yeppoon won 20-13. Yeppoon took the lead minutes into the game with a penalty goal by Brian Watts. Emerald replied immediately with a feeble try. The Seagulls seemed to be doing just enough to keep in front. In the 20th minute Yeppoon kept the ball alive and Jean-Phillipe Pougeau crossed underneath the posts.

Minutes later Brian Watts cleverly kicked ahead and flying winger Col McPherson regathered to score out wide. In the second half Emerald came out firing. Emerald kicked a field goal and scored a try to tilt the score in their favour 13-12. However Yeppoon played football. The Seagulls back-line spread wide' and had too many numbers for Emerald. Darren Cooper touched down out wide. Yeppoon moved further in front with a penalty goal close to full-time. Yeppoon has its best chance in years to clinch the premiership, which has eluded them in previous years.

League reserves could win flag YEPPOON Reserve Rugby League team overcame a shaky start to wallop Emerald 2610 at Yeppoon Showgrounds on Sunday. The Emerald Tigers surprised Yeppoon with a converted try five 'minutes into the game. 'However Yeppoon finally started playing like a finals team. Second-rower . Gary Morris opened Yeppoon's scoring. Morris scored an easy try after a regulation run -around move. Emerald rallied and looked certain to score but Yeppoon's defence repelled any challenge. Five minutes later Mick Stafford dived over. Stafford received a short pass from Bobby Hansen and busted two tackles to score. Yeppoon's support play in the back-lint was lethal. "Dutchy" Holland score a well deserved try to increase Yeppoon's lead, 16-6. In the second half Yeppoon showed no signs

of wilting. Well rehearsed moves placed Yeppoon in a try scoring position. Stocky second-rower, Steve Williamson dived over from dummy-half. Yeppoon powered on and replacement Dwayne Isles constantly penetrated the first line of defence. Isles was rewarded with a try after a quick play the ball by Graham Orr. Emerald scored a complimentary try late in the second half but could not withstand the Seagulls onslaught. . After the game a beaming Dutchy Holland nominated Rob Pidgeon as Man of the Match. Holland also said he felt the team had "Unlimited talent with untapped potential." Yeppoon Seagulli reserve grade will play at Browne Park on Sunday against All Blacks at 1.30pm. The Yeppoon A grade and U/19s have a bye.

finishing lower down in the placings. Mr Finglas took out line honours in both the Commonwealth Bank-sponsored Fifth World and 15th Australian Tasar titles. His total of 24 points from five heats was 1.75 ahead of second-placed Glen Collings from Victoria. Overseas competitor Zig Bursycki representing America was a further 12 points behind (37.75) in third. The 111 registered competitors were divided into three groups after the first three heats were raced. Out of this only division one competitors could take out the titles but division two and three competitors also had chances of winning trophies. All division winners won a watch while second and third places were rewarded with crystal glassware. A perpetual trophy is the main division one prize ... a candelabra. Division two winner was Jenny Sumsion, NSW, with 131 points, second went to Canadian Tony Martin on 141 and third was Peter Quinlan, NSW, on 150.

Martin Watson, 83rd, 364 points; Rob Tranet, 87th, 383 points; Peter Smith, 97th, 439 points and Carole Gifford, 101st, 483 points. The titles were not without trials. Over the 10 days of the competition the Invitation Race was cancelled, heat one was postponed then rescheduled and heat five had to be re-raced on Sunday. Publicity officer Colin Sims said gusting winds and then light conditions had provided for an entertaining and challenging race for skippers. Winds gusting to 33 knots had forced heat ones rescheduling while some heats had to be shortened to ensure competitors could finish. This occured when light conditions prevailed. Mr Sims said when Saturday's heat had to be postponed until Sunday it caused a flutter of hearts. World committee rules point out that four races must be completed to decide the World Champion. "The competitors managed to have four heats finished but if the final two heats hadn't been completed the end result would have been a different story," he said. '' "Running six heats enabled competitors to choose their best five. If only five heats were finished their worst could have been still dropped. "However, if only four had been run, they all count." Mr Sims said even after four heats many competitors were relying on further heats to improve positions. World titleholder Mr Finglas, after four heats, was sitting in second position while Mr Collings seemed to have sewn up the titles. "A 32nd in the fifth, followed by a first in the sixth, wasn't enough to give Mr Collings the title," Mr Sims said. "The result showed that Mr Finglas, who didn't win a race, won on consistency. His worst race was a 17th placing in heat one." Mr Sims said the variety of conditions didn't dampen any competitor's spirits. He said they all understood weather was the only area KBSC couldn't control. The competition was also relatively "protestfree" with about five being recorded and judged by committee members.

IT'S such fun being in small business ... there's so many diversions in the day to make each hour so completely different from the one before. Margaret Malinconico at Findlay's Betta Store had a day to remember on Tuesday. She was beseiged by people looking for ratshot (careful how you pronounce that if you're reading aloud) from her husband's gunshop within the store. Now Margaret knows all about TVs, videos, washing machines and fridges ... but doesn't know ratshot from ratshot (there's that word again). Anyway, later that afternoon, husband Tony calls in (he owns the gunshop). As he casually walks past Margaret's office she spots him and lets fly with both barrels. Actually, very calmly, Margaret makes a perfectly normal request that Tony should stock ratshot because he's had heaps of customers for it and she couldn't find any. Tony, in his most mellow tones, quietly replied that there was probably something like 30 boxes of ratshot in the shop. Tony quietly left the office, opened his gunshop, and returned a few minutes later triumphantly holding aloft an orange box about the size of a blackboare duster. "There it is," he said. Margaretlooked up, took the box, read everything that was written on it and still seemed confused. "Where's it say ratshot?" she said. Tony, again in triumph, pointed to the label then read it aloud: "No. 12 shot, High Velocity." Margaret's laughter echoed loud and long. She admitted she knew nothing about guns, nothing about bullets, and certainly nothing about ratshot ... and most certainly would never have known that someone wanting ratshot was looking for a box of No. 12 shot, High Velocity ... "that's sounds like something that would kill your grandmother." Anyway, the discussion continued until a motion was moved, seconded and carried by Margaret that Tony should leave her office forthwith, head directly to his own shop and there, immediately, label each box with the word "ratshot". As Tony left he remarked that some people also call it "birdshot"!!! • • • BY the way, Tony didn't label the boxes. Instead, he put up a sign as follows: "This is bloody ratshot Mate! Buy Some." I think Tony wanted the last word!!! • • • RHODES Watson took the picture on the front page this week. It's a beauty ... a top shot. But "Old Baldy" also took a picture for the front page this week ... but his didn't appear. "OB's" picture had Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton and Member for Capricomia Keith Wright shaping up to each other with bowls in hand. They were being kept apart by Emu Park Ladies Bowls Club president Betty Allen who did a masterful job with her facial expressions. It was a trul.• great shot ... one to remember. But Rhod...,_) processed "OB's" film ... and something went wrong. The result is that "OB 's" shot did not appear in the paper. Of course, Rhodes' did. What some blokes will do to get their name in the paper! • • • APOLOGIES to Denis Hinton and Keith Wright from "OB" ... but if either of you want to have a crack at Rhodes remember this; he's 18 now ... and can vote!!!
