Webb 'not filled with horror' at loss of franchise agreement LIVINGSTONE Shire councillor Maurie Webb this week the threatened cancellation of the Iwasaki Franchise Agreement didn't fill him with horror. "At no stage can I see the local shire left out on a limb and abandoned by the State Government. The efforts by the State member surely disprove that fact," he said. "Premier MikeAhern has had all and sundry baying at his heels to do something about the matter and has now taken some positive steps in the interests of getting further stages developed." Cr Webb he was speaking to a previous Coast resident on the weekend who expressed amazement about the amount achieved in recent years at the resort.

"The developer has not been given enough recognition for what has happened to date even though things are behind schedule," he said. "Contrary to what the State Opposition Deputy Leader and our Federal member is saying there has been positive input by the Iwasaki Sangyo Company. Saying 'I told you so' tends to make a negative a positive in political jargon." Cr Webb said he considered himself a positive thinker with the capacity to help shape decisions as one member around the council table if given a chance for input. "The future is not all doom and gloom but rather a more positive environment in having the local shire more involved in its people's future. I would much rather know more of what is going on with part of our shire. "The handing back of Rosslyn Bay Boat Harbour to the Government was a case in point. It was in the too hard basket. "Iwasaki Sangyo Company and its resort is part of our shire as is evidenced by the size of the rate bill it pays and the 220 staff who work there full-time or casual. "Please don't knock the positive and be a little less apprehensive of the future. Goodwill will bring positive results.





THE Capricorn Iwasaki Resort can accommodate 1000 people in 402 rooms spread around its four motels ... Royal Palm, Queen Palm, Aracauria and Melaleuca. The Iwasaki Sangyo company has spent 880 million building the resort. An infrastructure which includes an 18-hole golf course, administration centre, recreation areas, restaurants and accommodation. Capricorn Iwasaki has catered to almost every need including roadways, sewerage, power and water, making it self-contained. Part of the $80 million was spent in sealing 100km of roadway (12km form part of the fourlane highway from the Iwasaki roundabout to the building area). The remaining 88km is to be sealed progressively. The sewerage treatment plant can cater to 3000 people and power is generated through the 66/11kv sub-station. The resort is also enhanced by its water treatment plant. There are about 220 permanent and casual employees at the resort. A breakdown of visitors in 1987 showed a third were from overseas: Japanese, 20 per cent; Europe, New Zealand and Great Britain, 10 per cent; North America 3 per cent; Queensland, 30 per cent; New South Wales, 20 per cent; Victoria, 10 per cent and other states, 7 per cent.

Airport still feasibility despite loss of franchise agreement CAPRICORN Coast resident Chi Chi Murray said this week she felt that the Iwasaki Resort airport project was still a feasibility. 'The repealing of the franchise agreement by the State Government doesn't affect the viability of an airport based at the resort," Mrs Murray said. "Conferences are the main stream flow of tourists en masse and the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort is ideal for overseas businesses and organisations to hold their conferences. 'The numbers I'm talking about are enormous for an area like the Capricorn Coast ... a minimum of 500 people per conference, over a period of seven to 10 days. "America is looking at Australia -we are still the flavour of the month- and one of the places they know about is the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort. The climate and setting is ideal for them," she said. 'The resort will be the destination for conferences and not a drop off point for every international flight to Queensland, as many people fear. Mrs Murray said conference and charter groups don't like to be separated because of luggage, seating problems and, in some cases, interpreters. She said the flights could land in Brisbane or Cairns, go through customs and then head off here. 'The largest carrying capacity on a domestic airline out of Brisbane is 200 and coming in, via Cairns, 100 passengers. Mrs Murray said she is able to talk about conferences and charters. "I've been in the travel business for 20 years. "My speciality was arranging, booking and organising conferences for large companies and organisations." "Hawaii is our largest competitor in the conference business and Americans are tired of Hawaii and concrete jungles. 'That's why Queensland and, in particular, the Capricorn Coast appeals," she said. 'These conferences and charter flights can be ours. Charter flights don't operate unless they have at least 90 per cent occupancy. These numbers are based on United States figures. "My main argument is that unless Mr Iwasaki has his own landing strip ... we can't shuttle the people in. "Domestic airlines cannot move these people into the resort on scheduled flights due to the domestic travel needs of Australians." "As far as I know there wasn't going to be any customs facilities at the resort. It was to be an international landing strip only... not port of entry.

'There could be five aircraft per week carrying these numbers into the resort for extended stays ... not in and out like everyone is saying," she said. "Central Queensland is benefiting by large sums of money injected into the economy by the resort in terms of wages, produce, services and construction. 'This money is being poured into our community and the resort isn't even running at full occupancy. Just imagine how much more would be injected if an international landing strip was based at the resort. 'The employment numbers would increase not only at the resort but all over the Coast ... we are the resort's service area. "I believe Keith Williams is upgrading his Hamilton Island airstrip to international standard to cater for the same flights that can be available to us. "I don't hear or read any objections to Mr Williams proposals. Why can't our future be as rosy as Hamilton Island's. "Capricorn Coast businesses are at present suffering because of Expo and if Iwasaki can inject these extra people and money into the economy ... surely we can all get behind him and support the idea of an international lartding strip at the resort.

Govt would still support airport

Premier gives L, reasons for Iwasaki move THE Queensland Government is to terminate its agreement with the developers of the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort at Yeppoon. State Cabinet agreed to the move on Monday. "It followed two weeks of talks between the State Government and Iwasaki Sangyo, which had failed to reach satisfactory terms for a renegotiated agreement," Premier Mike Ahern said. "As a result we have decided today (Monday) to terminate the franchise. "The company could, at some stage in the future, seek the application of the Integrated Resort Development Act," he said. "At that time any such application would need to contain a full planning programme in order to be considered acceptable by the Queensland Government," Premier Ahern said. In all other respects, such as planning approvals, he said it would be subject to the regular requirements of the local authority, Livingstone Shire Council, and other government agencies. Action will now betaken to repeal the original legislation, called the Queensland International Tourist Centre Agreement Act.

MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week the construction of an international airport at Capricorn Iwasaki Resort would receive State Government support if it is included in a schedule of construction in an application made to the government under the Integrated Resorts Development Act at some future time. "This would, of course, be subject to environmental impact study approval," Mr Hinton said. "The State Government has to accept the reality of the fact that since August 6, when Iwasaki Sangyo Company gave Premier Mike Ahern a commitment to build an airport among other international standard facilities, there had been no further information on the subject whatsoever, despite the government requirement for full details and the company's commitment to supply them. "The government must deal on a businesslike basis, not on empty rhetoric- and hence the franchise is to be annulled by special repealing legislation," he said. "However, I am assured by the Premier the door remains open to the company if it will come forward with a precise programme where implementation can be guaranteed at some future time."

• ABOVE: Rodney Webber christened his new chum "Buck"because that's how much he paid for his friend at Farnborough's Country Fair.

Hinton gives franchise details THE Iwasaki Franchise Agreement is to be terminated by special repealing Legislation because the commitments given to Premier Mike Ahern on August 6 have not been backed up with adequate and firm proposals by the Iwasaki Sangyo Company. "It is now close to three months since the Government requested the company to supply details of its proposals for future development and that time has now run out," Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said. He said that on August 6, the Premier and he were advised by the company it intended to build an international airport, international hotel, international village and second golf course. "The company requested a new franchise

agreement and agreed to provide 'heads of agreement' by August 20," Mr Hinton said. "At this stage a letter has been received by the Premier's Department about peripheral matters only and the 'heads of agreement' or staged programme of development has not been forthcoming. "For this reason the franchise will be cancelled by special legislation, with the company being at liberty to make application for development under the Integrated Resort Development Act at its own discretion," he said. "However, for an application to be successful it would have to provide a proper staged programme with proper assurances of performance. We would consider the application on its • CONTINUED ON PAGE 4

STATE Cabinet's decision to rescind the Iwasaki Franchise legisation will lead to increased responsibilities for the Livingstone Shire Council. "But it will not cost shire ratepayers one cent," Member for Broadsound said in State parliament this week. "The Premier's Department and council would need to have a series of meetings to determine future jurisdiction over the Iwasaki area of about 8000 hectares of free-hold, but unzoned land. "An economic impact study to look at all aspects including the Local Government Act, Water Resources Act, Beach Protection Buffer Zones and Lands Department Acts would have to be considered," he said. "The changeover will have costs and these costs will have to be met by the State and Iwasaki Sangyo Company where appropriate, but the government will try to keep these costs to a minimum. "It certainly will not be a cost to ratepayers," Mr Hinton said.

• ABOVE: Capricorn Coast resident May Bailey models a knee rug. Mrs Bailey hopes the community will support her in supplying the proposed 40-bed nursing home with enough knee rugs for guests.

May Bailey calls for help with knee rugs idea A CAPRICORN Coast resident is hoping to present handcrafted knee rugs at the opening of the proposed new nursing home. May Bailey said she had been spurred on by Health Minister Leisha Harvey into making knee rugs for the new nursing home. "Mrs Harvey said she admired the way Coast people worked toward a goal and supported projects," she said. "I thought making rugs and other items would be a worthwhile gift to the home." Mrs Bailey hopes to enlist the help of Coast community groups including brownies and guides to make enough knee rugs for the proposed 40-bed home. Donations of yarn would help in Mrs Bailey's quest. She hopes to have the rugs completed in time for the opening next year. "The nursing home will probably need other items including footstools, washers, bibs, vases, books and bookshelves," she said. "It would be good for Coast people to donate these. It would be one less worry the nursing home would have to think about." If anyone would like to make the rug Mrs Bailey suggests they are made to this pattern. Size three crochet hook or larger and eight ply yarn. Make 205 chain. One treble into sixth chain from hook then one chain, one treble to end, and turn. Four chain, one treble over first treble and then one chain, one treble to end. Repeat last row until 100 rows of holes have been worked. Make chains and weave through holes from bottom to top of rug. Fasten securely. A fringe may be added. Mrs Bailey said she worked five rows red, green, white and blue and then threaded the rug with five chains of each in the same order of colours. Yarn may be left at the Mirror office for Mrs Bailey's project.

merits at the time. "Any future arrangements with the company must be on a business-like basis. In the meantime further development at the resort must involve normal compliance with the Local Government Act, Beach Protection Acts, Water Resources Acts and Lands Act. "There will be no further special privileges," Mr Hinton said. "This is not to say the resort cannot continue to expand. It is simply that it will be on the same footing as other developers and resorts." Mr Hinton said the proposal for an international airport could be part of an application under the Integrated Resort Development Act. "At this stage the company has supplied nothing on this subject since August 6, so we will treat it on its merits if andwhen application is made." Mr Hinton congratulated the Premier on his strong stand and said the Central Queensland community "at least knows the score." "We can only hope that a proper programme of development will be forthcoming."

What has no prickles, reddish-green leaves and golden flesh? The Valley Syndicate's Hawaiian Gold Pineapple!

WHAT has no prick tes, reddish green leaves and golden coloured flesh ... Valley Syndicate's Hawaiian pineapple To the S10 million f 'oast industry the introduction of this new .worid pineapple could result in three qualit7, .,ineapple varieties that will have no problem! with black heart. Valley Syndicate spokesman Mick Cranny said the first Hawaiia' pineapple crop, codenamed 53116, had been picked on the weekend. Mr Cranny said the syndicate had first started breeding the pineapple in 1980/81 after the Queensland Pineapple Industry found it incompatible to use with other pineapples in canned fruits. The industry imported three plants with six different pineapple varieties from Hawaii. They discontinued 53116 because it was hard to integrate the flesh with other canned pineapples. "The core is harder and the flesh yellower and because it has a creamier colour stands out in fresh fruit," Mr Cranny said. "We've bred about 20 plants since 1980/81. It takes two years to grow a pine to the stage where it could bear fruit." Mr Cranny said finding the right time in the year to plant had been important. "It seems the Hawaiian pineapple grows well in late winter/ early spring," he said. "The other pineapple varieties, Caynne and Queen (rough) tend to get black hearts. We do know the 53116 doesn't like dry weather but likes to mature in the cooler months." An 8000 to 10,000 crop, a small crop for pineapples, was picked on the weekend. The pineapples viability now depends on market acceptance. "It is prone to grasshopper attacks," Mr Cranny said. "It's eye is flatter than the other varieties, fruit dumpier. It is solid and high in fibre. Sometimes so high the core is too hard to eat. "The 53116 is juicier with a mild but distinct flavour. The pineapple is more dense, heavier and rounder in shape." Mr Cranny said there were three predominate pineapple varieties grown in the world ... Caynne, Queen (rough) and Spanish. Australian farmers tend to grow Caynne and Queen while the Spanish tends to be grown in tropical countries inc iding the Philippines and Asia. Pineapple farming ha, been big Coast industry since the '30s. f. one st ag,e the number

the 8000 tonnes of fresh fruit is trucked interstate. There are about 400 to 500 pines to a tonne, packed in cartons. Each truckload carries about 850 cartons. The pines are transported in bins when they go by rail. It takes two years from planting to the initial harvest and a further 14 months for the second crop which is called the first return. Mr Cranny said bigger farms produced most of the year, breaking their land four ways . . 25 per cent is in planting, 25 per cent is producing, 25 per cent is in its first return and the final quarter is being ploughed and replanted.


of farmers rose to about 100 with an influx of farmers, mainly from Maroochy Shire area. Mr Cranny said there would now only be about 50 farmers from Coowonga to Byfield and west to Rossmoya. However numbers may have dropped but production has increased. There are no new farms but existing farms have soaked up smaller plots as the owners have retired or left the area. The pineapple industry employs about 120 permanent workers. Numbers swell to 400 at the peak of the season, mainly the summer months ... January, February, March and April. Seasons are broken into two categories, fresh fruit and factory. Fresh fruit is picked from about September to May while factory fruit is picked from mid-January to June. Growers expect a good 1988 harvest as a result of the wind and recent rain. Mr Cranny said the rain had fattened out the crop. Fresh fruit is sold in all Australian states and at markets in New Zealand. Pineapples are mainly grown in Queensland with some crops in New South Wales and the Northern Territory. Mr Cranny said in the past five years farming trends had moved away from sending the majority of fruit to the factory. Once 100 per cent was sent to Northgate Cannery, Golden Circle, Brisbane, now two-thirds is sent to Brisbane and one-third is fresh fruit. Northgate Cannery is a grower-owned cooperative. Mr Cranny said it was the only cannery that isn't government assisted and is financially viable. Pineapples are canned in two forms at the cannery, sweetened and unsweetened. Unsweetened has become a big growth area in sales because no sugar is added. Mr Cranny said 17,000 tonnes of pineapples would be railed to the cannery each year while

PRIME MINISTER BOB HAWKE DETAILS WHY TO VOTE 'YES' • By Prime Minister Bob Hawke I WELCOME this opportunity, almost on the eve of the referendums, to discuss the proposals on which we are seeking the people's verdict. From the beginning, we have tried a different approach with these referendums. We wanted ordinary Australians, and not the politicians and the lawyers, to have their say in our bicentennial year. The four proposals on the ballot paper on Saturday are the result of a process of two-anda-half years of public consultation by the Constitutional Commission - a non-politici1 body on which a broad range of community interests were represented. The four amendments to the Constitution which are proposed will: provide for four year maximum terms for both Houses of the Commonwealth Parliament; establish a requirement for fair elections through electorates with equal numbers of voters and a guaranteed right to vote; recognise local government as an inte-

gral part of the Australian system of government; and extend rights already in the Constitution - trial by jury, freedom of religion and fair compensation for property acquired by any government - so that all Australians are effectively protected. Each of the proposals has benefits for people, not politicians. A `yes' vote for all of them would give us fewer and fairer elections, a guarantee that people can be represented at the local level and an extension of the rights which our Founding Fathers placed in the Constitution so that all governments are required to respect them. Far from being radical, each of the proposals is conservative in the best sense. Each can be supported by all voters, irrespective of the political party they normally vote for. Indeed, when we first proposed these changes, there was some prospect that the Liberal and National Parties would support them. The Federal Opposition supported, in prin-

ciple, a maximum (but not a fixed) four year term for the House of Representatives, the Liberal Party in Queensland supported a one vote, one value guarantee and the Federal Opposition had given clear promises to local government, trial by jury and fair compensation for property acquired by governments. Unfortunately, the Federal Opposition has decided for political reasons not to support any of the questions, even though many Liberals privately continue to do so. As a result I think many people may be confused, having read the Yes/No booklet, by some of the matters raised in the 'No' case. Let me put any doubts raised to rest. The Government has no hidden agenda in promoting the referendum proposals. The proposals are straightforward and stand by themselves on their merits. They mean what they say: better government and greater benefits for Australians. The fact is that the only people with a hidden agenda in this referendum campaign is the Opposition. It is clear that they are not opposing these reforms on their own merits. If they were, they would be arguing about the issues - whether there should be a four year term for both Houses of Parliament; whether every Austalian should have their vote count equally with every other Australian; whether local government should be recognised in the Constitution; and whether the existing rights

and freedoms guarantees in the Constitution should be made more effcctive. There is a claim that the four referendum proposals conceal, variou sly, 32 or 33 changes to the Constitution. On the same basis, the original Constitution, with all its thousands of changes to the way the colonies were then governed, would have been absolutely intolerable. The real issue is not the number of paragraphs crossed out or inserted but the effect of the amendments, which truly are moderate and simple. Claims about the effects of the proposal for a fouryear term for both the House of Representative and the Senate - that there would be more elections and that the Senate's powers would be reduced - are just as flimsy. At the very least, extending the maximum term to four years is likely to ensure that Parliaments run for a minimum of three years, a significant improvement on the two year average since 1945. It would also remove one of the main reasons for early elections in recent years - the halfSenate elections which fall due early in the House's term. As for reducing the Senate's powers, this claim is totally without basis. This proposal was carefully drafted to leave all of the Senate's powers intact, the power to review legislation or to amend or reject it. Even - for better or worse - the power to reject Supply. There is no magic to the rotational system of Senate elections or to the particular term of the Senate in ensuring its independence. -0" Neither will the autonomy of the Senate be affected if it faces an election at the same time as the House of Representatives. What counts is the powers it has at its disposal, and the way it is elected which remain completely untouched. I think it is very important to clear up one area of confusion - the effect of the proposal to extend freedom of religion. The last thing that anyone in the Government would wish is for church schools to be deprived of government funds. For that reason, we took the greatest care to ensure that this would not be an outcome of this proposal. The explanatory material for the Parliament, wh ich can be taken into account by the High Cow if there it :my doubt, makes this absolutely clelr. We have had the best 1, gal advice and it has been in the clearest of t‘ ms: government aid to church schools would not be affected. The purpose of the 1 ,1 oposed freedom of religion amendment is t. cxtend the right of all Australians to follow their own religious beliefs subject to the laws which govern us all. We would not allow that great aim to be undermined by such a flaw in the proposal, and we have not done so. Australians on Saturday will have their say on four proposals to update our Constitution. These are moderate and straight forward proposals, and ones which I believe deserve the support of all Australians. While these proposals deal with four separate areas of the Constitution they share one fundamentally important element, which is that they will provide benefits to the people, rather than powers to governments. Turning briefly to the details of the four questions, there are several points to be made. The four year term question will extend the maximum term of the House of Representatives to four years and reduce the Senate's term to the same period. The alternative, if the number of elections is to be reduced, is to extent t the Senate's term to eight years, but many people would consider that this is too long a term for a politician to serve. A longer term for the House of Representatives will allow governments to get on with the job of governing and Au, t ralians generally to get on with the conduct of their affairs without the ever-present prospect of a federal election. The average of an elect ion every two years since 1945 is simply too disruptive for everyone involved. The fair elections proposal will allow every Australian to have an equal say at the ballot box. The principle of equal representation is a basic right and it is important that our electoral systems reflect this. Effectively, this will ensure that no group of politicians can entrench their power at the expense of people's democratic rights. The proposal to recognise local government comes from local government itself, and has the support of Australians from across the political spectrum who believe, quite rightly, that the ability of local government to serve the people who elect it will be enhanced by constitutional recognition. The fourth question on rights and freedoms will rectify a number of shortcomings. The constitution does not give you a right to trial by jury for offences against State or Territory laws or for a number of serious Commonwealth offences; and it gives no right to fair compen• CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

• By Federal Opposition LeaderJohn Howatzl THERE is more to Labor's referendum than meets the eye. Labor is using the referendum to grab the extra power for Canberra which it has been unable to take by normal parliamentary means. New evidence of Labor's attempts to change the distribution of power in Australia comes from the New South Wales Solicitor-General, Keith Masons QC. He has warned that, if passed, the referendum questions could take power away from elected State parliaments and into the High Court. The whole Labor exercise is a dangerous meddling with the Constitution. All Australians should read the fine print behind the questions and they will find these four proposals actually make 33 changes to our country. The real purpose of the first question is to cripple the Senate. Behind the smokescreen of a four year term lies Labor's real dream - to take power away from the Senate. The proposal makes the Senate a mere rubber stamp for the Government's wishes and firm actions such as the Senate's rejection of the stupid ID card would in future be in jeopardy.

The first question could mean more elections not less. If passed, the Prime Minister could call an election for both Houses of Parliament whenever he likes. The second question is an attempt by the federal Labor Government to control all elections in every State. State elections are no business of Canberra. State elections should be decided by the people who vote in those States. Why should someone in New South Wales, for example, vote on the electoral system in Western Australia or Tasmania? This proposal would not guarantee fair elections and it would not stop the notorious gerrymanders. For example, at the last federal elec-

tion the Liberal and National Parties received more votes than the Hawke Labor Government yet because of the way Labor drew the electoral boundaries, Mr Hawke was returned as Prime Minister. The third question threatens the future of local government. This question does not give local government any guarantees, protection or rights and would not stop any government abolishing most local councils and establishing amalgamated regional monstrosities. The final question threatens the rights and freedoms which Australians already enjoy. The Australian Catholic Bishops agree with the coalition that this proposal could reopen the vicious debate in Australia as to whether or

not federal funds should be spent on church schools or church hospitals. This question, if passed, would take the "State Aid" decisions out of the hands of the parliament and into the unknown realm of legal High Court decisions. In the final question, Labor has lumped three separate propositions into one and if any Australian has any doubt about any one of them they must vote 'no'. I appeal to Australians to protect the Australian Constitution which has served our nation so well since the turn of the century and vote `no' to all four questions. I urge all Australians to say 'no' to Labor's grab for more power.


Referendums. Saturday September 3. Voting is compulsory.

Mirror gives Hawke and Howard equal chance to present their side on referendum MIRROR owner Suzy Watson phoned both Prime Minister Bob Hawke and Opposition Leader John Howard this week and gave them the opportunity to present their side of the referendum debate. Both are presented, uncut, to assist readers with their decisions tomorrow.

Hawke's 'Yes' case • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 sation when property is taken by a State, Territory or local government, or by the Commonwealth in a Territory. There is only limited constitutional protection of the right to religious freedom against the Commonwealth and none against the State or Territories. A 'yes' vote for the fourth question will ensure that the public is constitutionally protected for the first time against capricious acts by State or Territory governments in this area, and also that the existing constitutional guarantees ..._.. applying to Commonwealth Government actions are strengthened. I have the deepest respect for the wisdom of the Founding Fathers in framing our Constitution. But there are times when changes have to be made. It was for this reason that the Constitution itself provides a means by which change could be carried out but at the same time places the final responsibility for reform with the people themselves. In setting the referendum provisions in the Constitution, the Founding Fathers were expressing a faith in the intelligence and good sense of the Australian people - that in the years to come they would be able to consider proposals for constitutional reform and make an informed judgment as they had done in approving the Constitution in the first place. Implicit in this was a belief that the Australian people will neither approve of change for the sake of change nor stand in the way of necessary change. • I share that faith in the Australian people, and for that reason I have the greatest confidence that on Saturday they will consider these proposals on the merits and give their approval.

Bowen, Wall against road closure LIVINGSTONE Shire Council chairman Cr John Bowen and Cr Roy Wall recorded their votes against a road closure during the August meeting. The two councillors were against an application by J S, J L Price, and P L M Brazier for a closure of a strip on the Yeppoon-Emu Park Roads. The shire engineer Pat Murphy had recom-

mended council offer no objection as long as they complied with Telecom, Capricornia Electricity Board and Main Roads Department needs. Part of the recommendations also said council was examining drainage problems which affected properties in the applicants' area and would defer any proposed closure decisions until after a resolution on the drainage was reached.

LIVINGSTONE Shire has investigated the possibility of installing stinger mesh enclosures to ensure safety while swimming. Shire engineer Pat Murphy was asked at a previous council meeting to investigate the feasibility of having stinger mesh enclosures installed along the Capricorn Coast. Mr Murphy spoke with James Cook University officers, designers of the mesh enclosure, who have installed them in the northern areas of the State. They said a maximum enclosure size was limited to 50m by 50m because of the need to remove them each evening from the water for protection. "The nets are prone to damage from vandals, weed and water," Mr Murphy said. Large power winches are needed to set and

retrieve the enclosures. The Capricorn Coast's tide differences are a disadvantage. Beaches with steep profiles are best suited to an enclosure siting and flat beaches are unsatisfactory. It would cost about $70,000 per enclosure. Mr Murphy said he had also talked with Mulgrave Shire which bought five nets. "Three staff members and a truck costing about $80,000 every six months for maintenance and renewal costs are needed," he said. "It is likely that the large tidal variation and shallow beach profiles in this shire will make it difficult to select a suitable site on any beach for awenclosure." Council will now wait until visiting James Cook officers can make an on-site assessment of the feasibility of installing nets in the area.

Support for CCTO's Information Centre has dropped price $8000 SUPPORT, by way of donations and discounts, for building materials and related items involved with the construction of the Coast's new information centre has been outstanding, Capricorn Coast Tourism Organisation chairman Brian Hooper said this week. "Because of this support a price reduction of S8000 has been achieved to help with the construction," he said. "The response by both Coast and Rockhampton suppliers has been very encouraging. We have Coast people who have promised their services completely free. "Some of the larger Yeppoon and Rockhampton firms have also promised discounts of up to 51500 on particular items. "The overall objective is to achieve a total donation/discount figure of 510,000 and we are now only S2000 short of this figure. "We need the extra 52000 to contain the cost of the building to the planned budget," Mr Hooper said.

"We are also asking the Coast local community to help as the new centre will benefit the whole of the Capricorn Coast. The tourist dollar is a vital component of the future of our coastline and that includes future jobs for our youth. Mr Hooper said any Coast residents who would like to assist at the centre should contact the CCTO on 39 3111. "We are now in the preparatory stage of identifying staffing needs as well as many other associated requirements in running."

Rescission motion DIVISION 3 Livingstone Shire Cr Ellen Cogill successfully moved a recision motion during the August meeting. Cr Cogill moved for a recision motion asking the parliamentary commissioner for administrative investigations be given a list of points about a property in the Parish of Canoona. The motion was seconded by Cr John Smith.

Farnborough State School will use $1400 from fete on facilities FARNBOROUGH State Primary School will use money raised from its monster fete to enhance educational facilities at the school. A large crowd, including past principal Alex Black (1-7-48 to 28-2-51), mingled among the many stalls and attractions at the fete organised to celebrate the school's 75th anniversary. School principal John Runham said there had been excellent interest from people with about 400 to 500 attending despite the wet weather. Celebrations included the burial of a time capsule to be opened at the school's centenary. Items relevant to school in the '80s including a pamphlet with Farnborough's early history. "It was a successful day," Mr Runham said. "Gross takings were $2418.81 and the nett is

S1405.53. "The school will use the money raised from the fete to enhance educational purposes including books, outdoor facilities and recreational gear." Claire Hollingsworth is now the proud owner of a bicycle donated by the Capricorn Coast Mirror. She won the bike for her kite entry in the kite competition judged by Livingstone Shire Council chairman Cr John Bowen. The Moffat family's prehistoric kite, a pterodactyl, won $20 for second prize. Shannon Balsys was third, Daniel Kussrow fourth and David Runham was fifth. Raffle organiser Gail Prior said the response from the business community had helped boost prizes. "S300 was raised from raffles," she said. "We would like to thank all the donors." Raffle winners included W Thorpe, Don Ackers, C Healey, B Noller, Cr Brian Dorey, Elizabeth Harvey, C Kussrow, Mr Marshall, Rhett Watson, V Catton, D Brooks, Jacob Brooks, Amanda Round, Nicola Boyle and Alison Buckton.

Organisers said about 500 athletes, from fiveyear-old to master age groups, entered the games held on Sunday at Emu Park's new Bicentennial Park officially opened during the competition. Rain from past days didn't deter entrants and a crowd of about 200 people from attending. Organisers said the ground was soft but some fine performances were still registered. Angela Thwaite represented Emu Park State Primary School when she carried a baton to light the gas-fired torch which stayed alight during the day.

Access restricted to four islands off Capricorn Coast RESTRICTED access provisions apply to four national park islands off the Central Queensland coast. This means that they are closed to casual visitation by the public. These islands have natural resources of international significance for conservation. Entry to Peak, Wreck, Fairfax and Hoskyn Islands is restricted to scientists and others who have specific biological interests in these areas. Peak Island is a national park of about 170ha in Keppel Bay. The surrounding reef and waters of this island are declared a Preservation Zone under the Mackay-Capricorn Zoning Plan. This continental island supports the largest nesting colony of flatback turtles on the Great Barrier Reef. The colony is believed to be the second largest in the world. Sea-eagles also nest there. The surrounding waters and reef of Wreck Island are also a marine park Preservation Zone. This 6ha cay is located in the Capricorn Group to the north of Heron Island. This cay is of world significance for conservation and research of loggerhead turtles. The island is frequently used by roseate and blacknaped terns which are highly susceptible to human interference in their nesting success. Fairfax Islands are two national park cays in the Bunker Group of islands east of Gladstone. The larger cay on the eastern end of the reef is 16ha in area and comprised of shingle. The smaller cay is 8ha with a well developed pisonia forest. Both cays contain extensive areas suitable for ground nesting seabirds. Since 1970 they have been zoned as a scientific area in recognition of their value as a principal breeding colony for brown boobies. Hosk-yn Islands are two national park cays 2ha and 7ha in area immediately north of Fairfax Islands. The smaller island, East Hoskyn, is shingle and supports a major colony of brown boobies. It is separated from the west cay by about 700m of shallow reef flat. Since 1970 they have been zoned as a scientific area because of their importance for ground nesting bird species. The area is also a major green turtle nesting site. Try a

Pensioners seek bigger rate cut from State govt

35-metre air-conditioned luxury catamaran

YEPPOON Pensioners' League will ask the State Minister for Local Government to increase the rate subsidy to eligible pensioners from the present 20 per cent to 50 per cent. YPL president Bill Shuttlewood said this week Coast pensioners were well looked after by Livingstone Shire Council with a 50 per cent rebate from the general rate. In addition, pensioners receive a 20 per cent rebate from all rates from the State Government, which means they get 60 per cent off the general rate and 20 per cent off the rest. "However, the South Australian Government rebates pensioners 60 per cent off all rates," Mr Shuttlewood said. Livingstone Shire Council is working with the league to get a bigger rebate from the State government because it would mean the council could reduce, or eliminate, the rebate it gives, meaning more money would be available for local works. Mr Shuttlewood said council had sent letters to all State Governments querying what rebates were given to pensioners. It had received replies from all States except New South Wales and South Australia. The league's move to write to Local Government Minister Jim Randell was made at Thursday's YPL meeting, which heard a report from Mr Shuttlewood. He gave details of the first meeting of the Central Queensland Zone meeting for this financial year. Mr Shuttlewood is also CQ Zone president. He said Queensland pensioners were the worst off as regards rate rebates compared with other States. "Regarding the offer of the Queensland Government to pensioners to exchange their two economy class passes for one first class pass," Mr Shuttlewood said. "With the electrification of the Rockhampton to Brisbane line the journey would be cut appreciately and pensioners would lose if they accepted the swap. At present they have two passes." Before the start of business members were asked to stand in silence out of respect for a member of the League Nell Blacker, who had died the previous week. Mrs Blacker was an associate member of the Yeppoon Pensioners' League since she came to Yeppoon from Blackall, where she was a life member of the pensioners' league.

MENOPAUSE is a period of several years in a woman's life signaling the end of her reproductive years ... but not the end of her life. Like adolescence it happens to all women and like adolescence it sometimes causes a few ups and downs and special problems. Sometimes women having menopausal difficulties are unable to discuss them freely with their partner, families or doctor. The support of other women with similar experiences can go a long way to helping get over the rough patches. Sister Judy Newman-Tyler from Community Health is interested in starting a Coast Menopause Support Group. This group may or may not decide to affiliate with the Rockhampton group. Numbers will be limited at first to help form a relaxed and open atmosphere with a view to expansion at a later date or maybe form another group. Anyone wanting to discuss these issues or wishing to be a part of the first menopausal support group, please phone Judy, 39 1469 between 9am and 10.30am. The proposed starting date is September 15 at 2pm. *** BACK to Blackall reunion is on at the Rockhampton Railway Recreation Hall on Saturday, September 24. Tickets are S12 each and you have to let Barney Elliott 28 5398, Heather Tennent 223074, or Millie Hawkswell, 391796, know by September 1 if you want to attend. ***

LISTENING to good speeches is always a pleasure, specially when the topic is of current interest. Forum members enjoyed Sharon Croese's Have You Ever Wondered. Jan Edwards, Joan Whyte and Leo Carpenter also spoke on topics related to wonders of classical music, Expo, the wonder of words and truth. Janice Froschauer put forward an interesting argument. The next meeting will not be on the usual date because of the school holidays ... it is now on September 28 at the earlier time of 7.30pm. An issue to be raised is that of hostesses. Main speaker will be Jan Edwards with the topic Trouble Brewing. Eunice Cowdray chaired the last meeting and Joan Byatt was critic. *** SEPTEMBER 10 is the date of the bicentennial ball in Emu Park ... get a table together, it's more fun. The progress association has organised the night's entertainment (and Key Doyle will provide the music). The cost is $12.50 a head and includes supper provided by the Endeavour Inn. There's no excuse. Babysitting is available at the CWA hall next to the Cultural Hall.

A female black Labrador cross that has been in an accident was picked up by the pound people on August 25. On August 31 a small black male cross breed, blind in left eye was picked up at Keppel Sands School for stealing children's lunches. If you lose your dog, contact the pound, 39 3622, between 2pm and 4pm on weekdays to see if it has been picked up. Of course, if you would like a dog, Maureen Frost (the dog carer) may be able to help you. *** MEMBERS of Yeppoon Pensioners League are asked to note that to be eligible to attend Christmas dinner they must be financial by September 30. Acting secretary Lorna McIntyre will have the list of members who have not paid 1988-89 fees ($3) at the next meeting on Thursday, September 23 and anyone in doubt can make sure. The Christmas dinner is in Yeppoon Town Hall on Tuesday, December 6 and the catering this year is by The Lantern Restaurant and will be buffet-style with meat cooked on the spit. For financial members the cost is S4, for others $10.50. *** ANYONE for tennis at Emu Park? Victory Tennis Club has Monday social club games at 10am for new and old members.

Craft stall helps with guide dogs A COAST woman spends every weekend on a stall at The Causeway to raise money for the Guide Dogs. Annette Van Gestel said she never missed a weekend unless it rained. Her craft stall sells small gifts from 10 cents. The money raised goes toward the Royal Guide Dogs for the Blind Associations of Australia. There are many support groups dotted around the country. Some hold major once-a-year fundraising functions but many like Annette hold stalls that are continually raising money. She said that last month more than $400 had been raised from stalls and the 22 puppy dog banks in Coast businesses. These"puppy dogs raise varying amounts and last month's total was $149. All money raised goes to the association. The guide dog movement first started through Dr Arnold Cook. Dr Cook had been blinded at 19 by a rare disease but through learning braille pursued his studies and won a scholarship in London during the '50s. It was while in London that he heard about guide dogs for the blind and later returned to Australia with the country's first dog ... Dreana. Dr Cook, with the help of his former London instructor Betty Bridge, set up shop in a couple of modified tramcars in the grounds of Perth's Lost Dogs Home. It was a motley group of dogs that became eyes for many blind people, the drop out rate was high, and enabled them greater mobility.

Leprosy found at rate of 5000 cases each week - you can help CAPRICORN Coast residents have been sending used stamps to the Mirror for a year to assist the Leprosy Mission raise funds to help people suffering with leprosy. Leprosy Awareness Week, September 11 to September 18, will be held across Australia to highlight the plight of leprosy sufferers. For centuries, leprosy was the world's most dreaded disease. There are 5,000 leprosy cases notified each week world-wide. Today, it is the world's most misunderstood and the Leprosy Mission is organising the fifth annual Leprosy Awareness Week to make Australians aware of three vital points: the true nature of leprosy; the threat it currently poses to millions of people; the very real part Australians can play in wiping it out forever. In addition, 1988 marks the 75th anniversary of the beginning of Leprosy Mission work in Australia. This provides an additional opportunity to highlight the ways in the mission is responding to the challenge of treating the

A Fox Terrier/Kelpie Cross called Beau was the first Australian-trained guide dog. The Guide Dog Association now provides free mobility aids and training to many visually impaired Australians ... some have guide dogs, others long canes or various electronic aids. The money Annette and her helpers raise not only ensures the continued availability of these aids but also assists in funding research. Annette said a stall may operate during the pineapple festival as well as the usual Causeway stall.

world's 15 million leprosy suffers. The Leprosy Mission was begun in 1874 by an Irish Presbyterian school teacher in India who became aware of the tremendous needs of leprosy sufferers in his area. Today, the Leprosy Mission is an international Christian organisation. It is currently treating 400,000 leprosypatients in 33 developing countries and has a total staff of 2,500, most of whom are nationals of the countries where they live and work. The Leprosy Mission depends upon voluntary donations for its activities. Its budget in 1987 was 514 million. This amount was raised by support offices in 21 countries, of which Australia is one. The Leprosy Mission began work in Australia in 1913 and now has offices in all states. The aim of the LeprosyMission is to meet the total needs of leprosy sufferers - physical, psychological, social and spiritual - and to work towards the final eradication of the disease. At the village level in developing countries, the Leprosy Mission's priority is to detect and treat leprosy in its early stages, before deformities occur. More advanced cases are treated in Leprosy Mission hospitals. Surgery is used to correct deformities, while physiotherapy is employed to restore limb functions. Rehabilitation is another emphasis. Once cured, patients often have to be taught new skills, to enable them to earn a living. Social workers also help to break down prejudices, so that patients will be accepted back by their families and communities. The long term goal is the complete eradication of leprosy. If anyone would like to help, Enid Vaughan of 29 Baden Powell Street, Rockhampton, 22 3321, is one of Central Queensland's workers for the Leprosy Mission.

The Land Administration Commission had asked for council's views on proposed closure which arc within the Byfield Forestry area and provide access to no privately owned land as they start 50m south of the army gate. Shire engineer Pat Murphy said while council posed no objections to the closures the LAC should also obtain the Army's view on the matter.

CAPRICORN Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry meeting is on Tuesday, September 6 at Bayview Tower. "We originally invited Member for Capricornia Keith Wright to present his ideas on the international airport at Capricorn Iwasaki Resort, but that is now a non-event," chamber president Tony Millroy said this week. "Mr Wright is still our guest speaker and we have invited him to tell us his suggestions and plans for the Capricorn Coast's future in the next five years. "He is our federal member and should have our interests at heart ...wewant to hear what he thinks we can to do to improve the Coast's economy," he said. The meeting starts at 6.30pm and Mr Wright's talk is expected to start at 7pm. "General business will include a presentation of the proposed Capricorn Coast radio jingle. This is a joint venture by the CTDO, CCTO, Livingstone Shire Council, Emu Park Chamber of Commerce and our chamber." MrMillroy said a committee will be set up to lobby Industrial Services Minister Borbridge for the rezoning of the Tanby Road industrial estate to allow service industry and re-location of the cement works.

Blue Nurses get $24,636 THE Uniting Church's Division Aged Care and Domiciliary Services on behalf of the Capricorn Coast Blue Nursing Service has received a cheque for 524,636 from the Queensland Department of Health. "I have been advised by Health Minister Leisha Harvey of the payment. which is an advance payment for the July-September quarter, with the Capricorn Coast Blue Nursing Service receiving an annual grant of 598,098," Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said. The funds are provided by the Home and Community Care programme, a joint State/ Federal funded initiative, directed towards frail or at risk, aged and younger disabled persons with moderate or severe disabilities. The programme aims to facilitate the maintenance of those persons in their own homes and avoid their premature or inappropriate admission to long term residential care and thereby preserve their quality of life.

Special lease at Stockyard Point LIVINGSTONE Shire chairman Cr John Bowen declared an interest in a debate about freeholding a special lease and left the room. The Land Administration Commission wrote to council for its views on an application to freehold a special lease at Stockyard Point. Shire engineer Pat Murphy said there were 33 allotments at Stockyard Point and most were either freehold or in the process of being freeholded. Mr Murphy said no practical roadway existed to Stockyard Point and in the past views on freeholding had been approved with two conditions. These conditions include applicants being told by the LAC no legal road accessed existing blocks and council did not have to provide the access to blocks. The second condition asked LAC for any building work carried out to be the subject of a current building permit. from council. Council moved that these same views would be forwarded to the LAC, also pointing out that few building applications had been received even though there were about 30 buildings at the point.

$1000 tree limit THE Recreation, Parks and Sports Advisory Committee has recommended Livingstone Shire Council allocate S55,000 for capital works and 5265,000 in the maintenance budget. The recommendation was put to council after a meeting held in July discussed areas needing maintenance or other work. Crs Brian Dorey, Kev Hinz, John Smith and Duncan McDonald, shire engineer Pat Murphy and shire clerk Jim Brown were all present at the meeting. A 51000 limit has been put on tree purchases for Arbor Day. The committee said it would endeavour to have the community plant trees. The committee was told Yaamba Progress Association was pursuing a quest for park area with the Main Roads Department. A sports development council will be established in time to co-ordinate subsidy applications for the 1988/89 programme. The committee was told about the findings of the Emu Park/Zilzie recreation needs survey by Queensland Recreation Council officer Ian Whitehead. Don Ireland Swimming Pool Committee also talked about the funding and management proposals for the pool at Emu Park. Committee representatives said there were enough funds to start the first stage, the pool and fencing, and was now pursuing other additional funding sources for an early completion date. Mr Whitehead will help the committee formulate submissions to council for funding. Representatives from various football clubs including M Smith (soccer), B Munn and Y Motton (Aussie Rules), and L Coombs and M Boon (Little Athletics), talked about improvements to Apex Park, the grounds off Arthur Street, and the grounds off Tanby Road. Finishina earthworks on the Aussie rules field (off Arthur t' Street) was a higher priority than installing drainage. This club envisaged needing on-site dressing rooms and a centraly located club house facility at a later stage. The committee was told Apex Park would have about 750 cm of topdressing supplied from Lawn's property. Present amenities and storage are adequate but additional lighting and a perimeter barricade were high priorities. A proposal to build a skateboard facility is estimated to cost about S10,000. The Cooee Bay site was considered because of existing facilities which could be added to. In general business public seats and shelters will be assessed and reported on by the shire engineer.

• ABOVE: Bevan Mulholland congratulates Coast tennis player Darren Sargood on his recent successes.

Sargood has bright future DARREN Sargood is one of the original juniors who started his tennis career at the Capricorn Coast Junior Tennis Association four years ago. Since then Darren has been Queensland under 18 junior singles and doubles champion, Queensland representative and number one Central Queensland junior. In his short four year career Darren has competed and won successfully. Darren furthered his tennis future when hewas selected to attend the school of excellence in Brisbane for 12 months. His tennis coach Bevan Mulholland feels that the highlight of Darren's career was his Rockhampton Singles win this year. "He competed against the strongest players outside Brisbane in the singles," Mr Mulholland said. "To win this title Darren defeated long-time Rockhampton number one player Matthew Ilott in a game of power tennis." Darren's future holds many prospects: he is

involved in coaching juniors on the Capricorn Coast and in Rockhampton with the Bevan Mulholland School of Tennis; and is considering travelling to America to attend college and further his tennis or to compete on the European circuit.

Reserve Swans Emu Park and Yeppoon people ..,defeated 58-68 proposing junior rugby league *By Jay Blake UNFORTUNATELY Yeppoon Rules Reserve grade was not able to continue on with its fine form of recent weeks and went down by 10 points. Missing a few key players through being unavailable and promotion to A grade the side never really clicked although it had its chances. The Coast team led at half time due mainly to fine nick work by Col Jamieson and full forward Rob Gardner's accurate right foot. Gladstone slowly took the upper hand in the second half but not without a fight from players such as "Chooka" Geissman and Key Healy. "Hack" Harris was as reliable as ever at full back and "side step" Chapman gave a non-stop effort in the centre. Final score: Yeppoon 8-10-58 lost to Gladstone 9-14-68. Goalkickers: Gardner 7 and Geissman 1. All players and coaches must be congratulated for turning the side from easybeats to serious premiership contenders in one season.

MOVES are afoot to start a Junior Rugby League club and competition on the Coast with plans to start operating next season. A group of interested Coast residents held a meeting last week to discuss the possibility of forming a junior club for five to 17-year-olds. Group spokesman Yeppoon Police officer in charge Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer said an effort had been made to form a Coast club. Representatives from Emu Park and Yeppoon discussed ways the club could be governed and also talked about running its own Coast competition. "The idea behind junior rugby league is to foster the game's learning skills," he said. "There is less emphasis on contact and competition. "Learning and having fun at the same time is the general concept." Sgt Tanzer said a public meeting to elect

officer bearers would be held on Tuesday, September 6 at 7.30pm in the Pacific Hotel. Secondary school rugby league competition is under review. Sgt Tanzer said it could be incorporated with the normal Saturday league competition. "If we form a club we would try to run our own competition, inviting reciprocal trips between Rockhampton and Yeppoon," he said. "We don't want to infringe on other sports but we feel there is a lot of children who would like to play league." Sgt Tanzer said an important aspect about forming this club was that coaches would attend clinics and obtain certificates. "The great thing about junior league is that team involvement plays an important role in games," he said. "Anyone who can assist in any area or is interested in sponsoring is welcome to attend the meeting or phone me on 39 1400."

Hang-glider pilot lands at Coast NEIL Hardiman arrived on the Capricorn Coast on Friday in a powered hang-glider as part of his record-breaking solo flight around Australia. He landed at the Emu Park air strip as part of a six-month round Australia trip. The Airborne Buzzard Trike with an Arrow II wing, powered by a Rot ax 532, 62hp 2 stroke twin engine has an average cruise speed of 80 kmh. The 16,000km flight started from Sydney on August 7 and will follow the coast of Australia like Goble and McIntyre's pioneering flight of 1924 in a Fairey Eagle Seaplane. The first landplane to make the circumnavi-

gation was a De Havilland 50, piloted by E J Jones. He only covered Australia's major cities, leaving out large parts of Australia such as Cape York and Arnhem Land. Sir Charles Kingsford-Smith later flew the same route as a prelude to his historic TransPacific flight in 1927. Mr Hardiman, 25, was British Universities 1987 Hang-Gliding champion and third placegetter in the Scottish Open. He was flight coordinator for the Dalgety Flyer's Britain to Australia Bicentennial flight. Prior to working with Dalgety Flyer he completed a Masters degree in engineering and in his spare time is a hang-gliding instructor.

I -9 THREE Yeppoon Junior Aussie Rules team have landed grand final berths and will play on Sunday in Rockhampton. Yeppoon under 13s and 15s earned their places in the grand finals after exciting games on Sunday. Theyjoin the under 17swho earned the honour last week. The under 13s had good competition in Wandal as results show, 5-2-32 to 4-5-29. Had Wandal kicked straighter, it could have been a different story. A brilliant display of running football by Shane Franke in the last quarter, resulting in a goal, gave his team the encouragement it needed in a do-or-die effort to lift the team to a win. "It was a delight to watch the great marking by these boys and the great running footy of the midgets," publicity officer Yvonne Motton

said. "They teamed verywell, a credit to them and their coach." Best players were Shane Campbell (rover), Shane Franke (half forward flank), Cameron Blake (half forward flank) and Matthew Dean (centre half back). Goalkickers were Shane Franke 2, Doug Edwards 1, (also nicked well after his knee surgery), Steve Horstman 1 and Peter Geier 1. Under 15s doubled Wandal's score, 10-21-81 to 5-2-32, but next week's grand final against Parkhurst will be tougher. "It was great to see a full team of under 15s and see them team so well together to produce this good win," she said. There were some great marks taken by Dale Wetzler, Adrian Deurloo, Graham Pye, Grant Thorpe and Darren Caddy. Brilliant patches of

running football by Dayle Perrin, Adrian Deurloo and David. Liddell, great defence by Ronald Mackie, Lee Dungey and Chris Lawer and good nicking by Graham Pye and Dayle Perrin was a crowd pleaser. "Mention must be made of Darren Caddy's great five goals." Other goalkickers were Graham Pye, Adrian Deurloo, Peter Rayner, Grant Thorpe. Best players: David Liddell (wing), Dayle Perrin (ruck rover), Stephen Phillips (half forward flank), Dale Wetzler (centre half forward), Adrian Deurloo (rover), Ronald Mackie (centre half back), Darren Caddy (full forward). The grand finals are on Sunday, September 4 at Stenlake Park, Rockhampton. First game starts at 10am, second game 11.40am and under 17s at 1.40pm. Bus leaves at 9am.

Senior Swans into preliminary final with major form reversal * Br Jay Blake. IN a complete form reversal Yeppoon Senior Swans won a place in the preliminary final when they spanked Brothers by 36 points. They completely eclipsed their much vaunted opposition and if they had made the most of their opportunities in front of goal the winning margin would have been much greater. It was "hats off- to every player in the way they rose to the occasion after the bagging they look from all and sundry the week before. Robin Masek, a surprise selection at centre half back, was far and away the best player afield. He repeatedly turned Brothers back, marking everything that came his way to the extent that people in the crowd thought the match was being played with his ball. Fledgling ruckman Nic Basham gave a much needed lift around the ground while "Dive Bomber" Lacy pounced on every loose ball. Tim Mynott and Grant Boyd both had tremendous games displaying courage and guile usually reserved for far more experienced players. In fact the Swans "BP" player provided the highlight of the match ... single-handedly bring-

ing the ball from the half back to half forward line, beating eight players in the process and engineering a goal. "Mr Football" Gary Fraser arrived back in the top grade and finished with a bag full and "Cookie" Cruickshank added a touch of pace across the centreline. Powerhouse Doug Newton received a heavy blow to the throat early in the game but played it out to the finish typifying the spirit so prevalant in the side. Final score: Yeppoon 14-15-99 defeating Brothers 9-9-63. Best players: Masek, Basham, and the other 18 players. Goalkickers: Fraser 6; Boyd 3; Basham 2; Taylor, Wiggington and Motton 1. The side will face Gladstone at Stenlake Park for the preliminary final at 2.30pm and organisers are hoping for a good roll-up from Coast supporters.

Seagulls bow out * By Darren Goody YEPPOON A grade Rugby League team bowed out of the 1988 competition with a two point loss to Brothers at Browne Park on Sunday. Paul Isles and Ian Brazier were instrumental in all Yeppoon's points. Brazier opened Yeppoon's scoring account 10 minutes before half time. Brazier had levelled the scores after Brothers held a six point lead for most of the first half. In the second half Yeppoon started with a renewed vigour that had deserted them in previous weeks. Speedy winger Steve Portch scored Yeppoon's second try. Portch dived over after Yeppoon's back-line passed the ball wide of the nick. The game then see-sawed with both teams running freely. Brothers looked certain to score but the try was disallowed. Yeppoon was defending grimly before Brothers levelled with a try eight minutes from full time. Brothers converted and took a two point lead. Seagulls tried valiantly to get back into the game. Brazier nearly had a fairy tale ending, but was held up over Brothers line. The final score was 12-10 to Brothers and now meet Fitzroys in the grand final. Yeppoon played one of its best 80 minutes efforts this season and it was a shame Yeppoon finished with a loss. Throughout the season, Yeppoon Seagulls have been supported by Chippindale Motors and a multitude of spectators who travelled to every game.

Tim lack. ob the lit

ONE of the problems that has plagued the Capricorn Coast is the pulling in different directions. Tourism, to many people, is the future. Tourism, for the majority of the rest of the people, is the last thing they want. And those who are left are either undecided or don't care. So the people, the various groups, the clubs and organisations, look at things in different ways, depending on their executives' outlook. One thing lacking is a common goal ... something that everyone can agree on. Valley Syndicate head Mick Cranny is a pineapple farmer and he looks on things from a pineapple grower's point of view. He feels his business is already the backbone of the Coast, along with fishing and other businesses. These industries and businesses provide jobs for families and, as a result of the pay packets, jobs for other people in town in shops, restaurants, picture theatres pubs and so on. Mick Cranny reckons the one goal the town should aim at is increasing the population. He even has a slogan ... Let's put more feet on the street. That's catchy and it could catch on. He reckons the Coast needs at least 1000 more people. Put simply, those 100( would buy, among other things, his pineapples and therefore provide more jobs. Now, the problem is, where do you find 1000 people. Mick says they won't be found among young couples. The younger members of the community won't be able to find work locally and will drain the family purse driving to Rocky. Also, when they find work in Rocky, they will most likely shop there, providing more jobs for Rockhampton people. Mick has given this a lot of thought and reckons there's a simple answer ... pensioners. Pensioners have skills and experience to offer plus they have solid incomes (that Federal Government ain't never going broke). In addition, they usually have enough money to buy a house. What does the Coast have to offer them? Well, for a starter, there are houses for sale here. Lots of them. They are available in many price ranges so any potential home owners can find something to suit their pockets. Then there's bowls and golf clubs, and good ones, at that. There's indoor bowls clubs, pensioners' groups, beaches to walk on, unsurpassed views to look at, scenic drives to take, places to picnic, places to spend a day, places to fish and places to visit. There's places of worship for almost all religions. There's plenty of things a pensioner can do and, according to Mick, he's checked this out with other pensioners who say the Coast has everything they need. OK, there's lots more that can be said, but that is the basis of his idea. There's a problem, of course, in attracting these pensioners. Mick says the ideal would be 500 pensioner couples and, when you look at it that way, that's not a lot. He says he could probably convince one couple to move here and has no doubt he could convince others. But that's not his point. point he's making is that the whole Coast has agree that 500 pensioner couples will provide the answer to the Coast's problems. Once the Coast agrees, it will have that much-needed common goal. Then, and only then, can it work toward an objective. Once everyone agrees on attracting 500 pensioner couples, the chambers of commerce and the council can work out how to target these people. There are newspapers and magazines aimed at the over 55s which would accept advertising and articles and there is the power of word-of-mouth advertising ... a happy Coast resident contacting people in other areas and telling them about this area. Mick Cranny's idea has a lot of merit; no, I'll go further, it's brilliant. As Mick says, the Coast already has a heap of shops and two or more of each type. None are making millions, yet each has the capacity to handle more business than it now gets. Putting "feet on the street" would boost these businesses and give the Coast a solid economy. Then, and only then, could it look to its next objective. It might be tourism,; it might be 500 young families ... but whatever it is, it has be a common goal. He goes further with his idea. He believes the loss of the Franchise Agreenment at the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort will give the Coast the chance to stand on its own two feet. Instead of thinking about how to make a quid out of Iwasaki, people will have to think about how to make a quid for themselves; by their own efforts. Think about Mick's idea and write a letter to the editor with your thoughts. His idea deserves debate.
