• March start for marina KEPPEL Gateway Pty Ltd announced this week work would start in March next year on construction of seawalls and reclamation associated with its 350-berth Rosslyn Bay Harbour marina. Managing director John Davies said the March starting date would allow for uninterrupted work based on the end of the cyclone season. An earlier proposed deadline to start work this week had proved difficult to meet because of technical design and commercial considerations, and finalisation of equity arrangements. Mr Davies, a Biloela-based businessman

who also has a home at Lammermoor Beach, said the March start would allow his company a nine-month stretch of the best weather in which to finish stage one. This stage, estimated to cost $8.5 million, would build an inner and outer seawall plus reclaim and create 12.5ha (30acres) of prime harbour-front land between the walls. "That means the project will have fulfilled the obligations required under the two-year development lease issued in March this year by the Harbours and Marine Department with the Harbours Corporation of Queensland," Mr Davies said. He expects to complete that stage very

early in 1990 ... and that will mark the start of the next and final stage. "By 1990 we will have seawalls and 30 acres of raw, reclaimed land with a superb 20-acre, 3-metre deep marina basin," he said. Rosslyn Bay Boast Harbour will then be complete. It will have a safe, all-weatehr harbour entrance and deepwater moorings. That's when the commercial development starts. The ultimate plan calls for: • 350 marina berths catering to boat sizes ditated by demand at that time. • Marina on-shore facilities which include a management centre incorporating a • CONTINUED ON PAGES 8 AND 13

Dog attacks boy doing good deed A CAPRICORN Coast boy's community spirit in helping clean up Yeppoon Main Beach on the weekend was marred by a dog attack. Seven-year-old Ben Webb was bruised and scratched when a tan German-Shepherd cross attacked him while he was helping collect rubbish. Ben's mother, Belinda Webb, said she didn't see the whole incident. She said Ben was collecting rubbish in the softer sand section higher up the beach while she and friends collected rubbish closer to the water. "Ben is normally a friendly person when it comes to dogs," she said. "I asked him if he had done anything to annoy the dog. "He said all he did was to say hello and the dog latched onto the top of his leg. He has bad scratches and bruising on his leg and buttocks.

"A man and woman were sitting nearby with another German Shepherd and all they did was smack the dog that attacked Ben, after the accident," she said. "They didn't shout or call the dog back. My, friend told them that in future they should make sure their dog is under control. "What I'm worried about is that the dog could have badly injured a smaller child." The incident occurred while they were collecting rubbish between the Bluff and the ramp on Farnborough Beach at Bangalee. FOONOTE: Livingstone Shire Council bylaws state that designated bathing areas (identifiable with signs) disallow any dogs. All other areas (without signs) can be used by dogs but they must be effectively under control with either a leash or chain.

WRIGHT PROPOSES %SUPER REGION' A SUPER region designed to promote Central Queensland was proposed by Member for Capricornia Keith Wright when he addressed the Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry this week at Bayview Tower. Mr Wright said a super region, called Capricorn or Capricornia, promoting the whole Central Queensland area could solve identity problems now experienced. The chamber invited Mr Wright to talk about his suggestions and plans for the Capricorn Coast's future in the next five years. Mr Wright said a central administration block, located at Rockhampton, with input from all regions from Maryborough to Mackay would link Central Queensland. "Total regional development would give us an identity," he said. "The first major breakthrough has been achieved with the Commonwealth Education Department to be centrally located at Rockhampton. "Rockhampton would have the administration centre but all areas would still play key roles." Mr Wright said that there was too much disunity in Central Queensland because ad-. ministrative roles were handled all over the place. "Until there is one administrative centre the area cannot work together," he said. "Rockhampton is suitable because it already has some major government centres as well as population. We can start looking at promoting the area as a definite destination for tourists," he said. "We have to find products to sell in Australia and overseas. We have to develop our Ps ... people, position, power, potential, promotion and performance." The super region proposed, Capricorn or Capricornia, has about 250,000 people, is ideally positioned with the potential to offer everything except snow. Mr Wright said a super region could offer complete tour packages offering a wide range of destinations that could concentrate on one area but also be a whirlwind tour of the entire region. "With an identity, we can promote the area that offers a wide range of attractions," he said. Mr Wright's idea is to have this region in the forefront of advertising. Overseas tourism companies could be told about what this area has to offer and be in a position to recommend it as a destination. "At the moment they don't know about us," he said. "It's up to us to convince them it is worth seeing and being on their tour itinerary." Mr Wright said he was pursuing efforts to get a 550,000 pilot scheme grant from the govern-

Pineapple Fest shaping up THE Capricorn Coast's 1988 Yeppoon Pineapple Festival is shaping up to be a week full of activities starting on Sunday, September 25.

Decorated shop windows and a garden fair in Beaman Park will be held on Wednesday, September 28. The official opening is held that night during the Capricorn Society of Arts Exhibition.

ment to start the programme. "There is no official funding available," he said. "I am asking for a one-off payment, no set precedent, to start a pilot scheme for a super region. "Areas within the super region would benefit from a total package promotion."

Hinton seeks readers' ideas on park name; Bayfield or Byfield? MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton is seeking feedback from the community as to the most desirable name for the national park soon to be gazetted north of Corio Bay. "The area has been traditionally known as Bayfield and the proposed Bayfield National Park has almost become `folklore' to those people such as myself, who have been committed to the objective of creating a national park," Mr Hinton said. Environment, Conservation and Tourism Minister Geoff Muntz wants the name changed to Byfield National Park because of the obvious confusion created by two district names that are immediately adjacent and yet so similar. "I am therefore seeking a public response by telephone or mail, and indeed through the Mirror so I can accurately reflect the views on the community to the Minister," he said. "I invite the public to put forward their thoughts on this issue." Mr Hinton received the following letter from Mr Muntz about the national park's name change. "I refer to your letter of August 9, 1988, requesting that the proposed name of Byfield National Park be changed to Bayfield National Park. The position in this particular matter is that a short time ago the surveyor-general approached the then acting minister for land management Ivan Gibbs, concerning the proposal by the National Parks and Wildlife Service at that time to use the name Bayfield rather than Byfield for this national park. The surveyor-general intimated that the former spelling had occurred frequently in the press and some complaints had been received in the Department qf Geographic Information about the "wrong' spelling of the name. The acting minister strongly urged the adoption of the name Byfield rather than Bayfield for the following reasons: the district of Byfield was known by that name from the time of closer settlement; postal authorities used that name as early as 1888 (refer Frew, Joan Queensland Post Offices, p 108); the district is well known among botanists and florists as the original habitat of the rare Byfield fern (Bowenia serrulata); the general public will associate the national park with the district, and the two should bear the same name, to avoid directional and tourist confusion. It is recognised that the original pastoral run carried the name Bayfield and that a parish took its name from the run. However, the pastoral run disappeared as an entity late last century and parish names will receive less and less use as the lot on plan system of land description gains currency. The name Byfield Creek appears on a cadastral map as early as 1908 (County of Palmerston, sheet 1). The postal receiving office shown on the parish map appears to change name from Bayfield to Byfield at some time between 1923 and 1928 (Parish Maps). The school was considered by then the Department of Public Instruction to be Byfield from its establishment in 1923. Although the origin of the name Bayfield is

not in doubt the popular use of Byfield as a district name led the acting minister to urge that Byfield be the name used for the new national park. I am sure you will agree that the argument for changing the name of the proposed national park to Byfield was indeed impressive, and, in the circumstances, I approved that the name Byfield National Park be adopted."

Greening help EMU Park Lions Club and Livingstone Shire Council's greening programme on Saturday attracted 30 people from the community. The tree planting morning resulted in more than 96 Hoop Pines, Cuban Trumpet Trees, and Queen, Alexander and Royal Palms being planted. They were planted on the Emu Park to Rockhampton Road approaches and is part of an ongoing Lions greening programme. Council supplied the machinery and fill and the Lions club provided the trees. Club spokesman Ross Coulter said it had been a good community effort. A free barbecue was provided for helpers following the working bee which involved about three hours' labour. The Lions club is now working toward its annual Oktoberfest which is four weeks away.

rather than be completely redrawn and this advice was confirmed by letter to the council dated August 16, 1988. As already indicated, when the complete documentation is received from the council, urgent action will be taken to process the matter. There is nothing now which the Local Government Department can do until this documentation, which was first requested in February of this year, and further information relative to certain matters proposed to be contained in the strategic plan, is received from council.

Bayfield licences surrendered THE proposition considered by the State Land Administration Commission that the first stage of the proposed Bayfield National Park be held as a reservation for scientific purposes rather than a National Park has been abandoned. • "The 3760 hectare area north of Water Park Creek will be gazetted as national park in the near future, following my submission to Premier Mike Ahern and Cabinet," Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said. "I requested that the gazettal of the first stage of the park be expedited. There is no possibility that the area will be anything but national park," he said. At present occupational licences over the area are being surrendered, and this is the final, stage before gazettal.

MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton asked Local Government Jim Randell about the progress of Livingstone Shire Council's strategic town plan at parliament this week. Mr Randell replied: The Livingstone Shire Council first decided to prepare a strategic plan for its area in July 1983 and since that time dialogue has taken place between council and my department on a number of matters related to the preparation bythe council of a new town planning scheme which includes the proposed strategic plan. In February, 1988, officers of my department met with representatives of the council and the council's town planning consultant. At that meeting advice was given that as council was now finally committed to the adoption of a strategic plan, the Local Government Department would give priority to its introduction into the existing town planning scheme for Livingstone Shire by way of an amendment to the scheme. The council was advised that while the department's policy has been to require maps to contain up-to-date cadastral information, maps which are currently available would be accepted by the department for the strategic plan in this instance. Further discussions were held between officers of the Local Government Department, council representatives and the council's town planning consultant in April 1988, when much the same advice was given. In July 1988, the Local Government Department reiterated its advice to the council that the mapping required need only be updated

If you are interested or can help NAPPS in any other way, please ring Teresa Lynch, 39 7548, or Janice Froschauer, 39 1527. *** KEPPEL Bay Shell Club's August meeting was a time to talk about the recent shell show and enjoy the slides of the winning entries shown by president Allan Davidson. Plans for the annual cent sale are made and some interesting prizes for shell collectors as well as the public will be available. Visiting members from Bribie Island, Betty and Don Byrne, donated a selection of framed colour phots showing rare and unusual shells, living shells and shelling expeditions. They will be a source of interest for all time. Don won the monthly competition. The shirtbox display was unusual beach shells and the jet black Stromb displayed by Patsy Geddes created a lot of interest. Next month's shortbox competition will be Mitra shells.

The Coast's TOP SPOT!


Developer gives full details of Rosslyn Bay Harbour plans manager, chandlery, laundry, a shower and toilets complex. • Associated with the marina would be a hardstand area incorporating boat-lift (for repair and maintenance) and fuelling facilities. • In addition, there would be a tourist berth facility, including a terminal, available for tourist and charter boats. This facility would become the focus of attention for a fisherman's wharf-style boardwalk area. This would be surrounded by retail facilities, hotel and tavern catering to the tourists and travelling public. • To attract permanent reidents and to provide a holiday market, villas and townshouses have been planned. There would be 22 harbour-front villas with attached marina facilities and a further 25 townhouses. • Provision has also been made for a helipad. • To cater for the vehicular traffic the project is expected to generate, provision has been made for 600 parking spaces throughout the site. Mr Davies said before any of this development could occur, stage one had to be completed. Getting stage one ready for a start has taken almost six months since the signing of the lease. Planning before the development lease was signed took 12 months during which a thorough investigation into the Capricorn Coast's needs, requirements and viability was commissioned. Backed by volumes of data generated by research groups and consulting engineers, Mr Davies is confident the company has a "great site" that will develop as the focal point for boating and tourism for the islands and the Capricorn Coast. He carries a brief case full of bound reports on design, wave model test results, artists' impressions, photographs, costings and lease agreements. Every report represents a step closer to the start of work. Right now, Keppel Gateway Pty Ltd's development managers, Leighton Contractors, have settled on a final design which requires further three-dimensional


wave model testing of the outer breakwater. Endless testing is necessary for any project ... but in the case of Rosslyn Bay Harbour, the right tests were vital. Cyclone David proved the original harbour wall to be found wanting. Keppel Gateway's consultants simulated Cyclone David-type conditions in their wave model tests to come up with the best design for the marina project.

Team effort leads to grand final * By lay Blake

They led at every change, albeit only a few points, so the result was always in doubt. To describe Steve Burns' performance you would have to dig deep for the right superlatives. Gladstone hit himwith everything bar the goal post but the tough captain/coach answered every challenge. Rover Mark Wiggington turned in his best display of the season showing all his skills and picking up kicks all around the ground. Centre half forward Dave "Yabbie" Bibby was as tigerish as ever, pouncing on every ball on the ground apart from being a tower of strength in the air. Nick Basham started the game in fine style,

YEPPOON Swans earned a spot in the 1988 grand final with a stirring win over Gladstone last Saturday. Led by an inspirational Steve Burns the Swans held sway all day in a hard fought preliminary final. Once again it was a complete team effort with the Swans starting as if shot out of a cannon. If they had kicked accurately a near-match winning lead would have been posted by the end of the first quarter. Throughout the game Yeppoon dictated play but every time they looked to have kicked away, :ley let Gladstone back in.

kicking the first two goals, then kept the momentum going in the ruck for the rest of the game. Rob Masek followed up his best of game last week with another great game in defence and his partner in crime, Mike Wozniak, overcame a slow start to finish all over his opponent at full back. Tim Mynott was rock solid in his back pocket and his clearing dashes that have become his hall-mark pinched holes in the Gladstone attack. "Mr Football" Gary Fraser again spearheaded the attack, finishing with six majors and Brett Motton continues to run into top form at

the right time. His solo goal in the last quarter was the sealer. Final scores: Yeppoon, 15-18-108; Gladstone, 13-8-86. Goalkickers: Fraser, six; Basham, five; Motton, two; Munro and Bibby, one. Best players: Burns, Wiggy, Basham, Yabbie, Motton, Masek and Cookie. The Oscar Johnson oration award was won by Rob Stokely for his speech on mud bathing. This week is the big one, but to win it the Swans must overcome minor premiers Wandal on their home ground, so every bit of support the town can muster will make the task a little easier.

CENTRE HALF FORWARD: David (Yabbie) Bibby, another former South Australian and a realfind for the club. His strength and vigour across the half forward line is an integral part of Swat's' success.

WING: Brian (Cookie) Cruiksl is another great competitor won't stop naming. Never fails to drive off his wing and is rarely o, the best players. The teams s shrines through in all players.

HALF BACK: Brett Odell was brought out of retirement and has not let anyone down. He is a very skilled player who can play in almost any position ... this adds to the team's rounding of talent.

ROVER: Grant Boyd, a young tough dynamo who loves doing the hard work. His never-say-die attitude has often sparked the Swans into action. He has been through the junior sides to this team.

BAY VACATIONER A Salute to the Swans

■ ABOVE: It was a big day forAussie Rules on Saturday with grand final wins to both the under 15 and 17 sides. Pictured are under 15 players Dale Wetzler and Adrian Deurloo during the game.

One game from history YEPPOON Swans has been, for most of its history, football's poor cousin. During the early years when the team struggled to finish anywhere bar the bottom and victories were celebrated as a final ... all players and officials were the brunt of much derision. However, 1985, with a new-look committee, and an influx of talented players the Swans revived. With Alex Herewane at the controls, the club swept all before them. The A grade side finished second and the reserves on top in their first year. Unfortunately the seniors failed to win a final but the reserves brought home the club's first title.

Another BRICK in the Wall CLAY it on them SWANS From


Swans can win win first A grade flag •

In 1986, with more talent, the club seemed destined for success but stumbled in the preliminary final again. Reserves continued to carry the torch and brought home its second premiership. Last year there was little joy, with players leaving, committee problems and too few wins. The reserves made the finals but were eliminated in the first semi. This year the club acquired the services of Steve Burns as coach and before the season started it seemed that it was going to be a long year ... but that wasn't to be. By expanding on the youth policy, Steve was able to field a side with a combination of old heads and young legs. At one stage the side was unbeaten and top of the table but disaster stuck. The team lost match winners Ben Kelly and Gary Fraser in one week. Added to that were some injuries and the club lost its momentum, balance and winning edge. Coach Burns then concentrated on building unity, and it is this team spirit that separates this side from those of previous years. Entering the final series as underdogs the Swans have gone from strength to strength and now have only one side between them and history.

FR• P• E

Yeppoon Seagulls Rugby League side had already made it to the finals, CapCoast Rugby Union was in top form and the Aussie Rules side seemed a certainty to be in the top four. However, Yeppoon Seagulls faltered in the finals, CapCoast was out after the first semi and it was left to the Aussie Rules side to bring home the A grade premiership. None of the three sides had ever contested an A grade grand final but Yeppoon Swans' chance is on Saturday when the team meets minor premiers Wandals. Yeppoon Seagulls club president Cr Maurie Webb said league supporters would turn out in force to barrack for the Coast side, as will CapCoast Rugby fans.

High flier with flair YEPPOON Swans' half back Rob Masek is a forward turned defender who has hit his straps at the perfect time. He is a real high flier with plenty of flair and more proof of the team's new spirit. Masek was unavailable for the team photograph this week ... but is definitely a goer for the grand final on Saturday. f

THE Mill Gallery's creative clothing fashion parade and afternoon tea function attracted only 30 people. Despite the disappointing turnout all enjoyed the work from local seamstresses and designers. Mill Gallery's Dale Childs said it was important all branches of art were displayed. "Because this is an art gallery of all fields, and there are lots, including phot ographic and dressmaking, which should be displayed," she said. "It also gives local designers and seamstresses, who don't sell through shops or sew constantly, a chance to model and display their creations." The six designers include one who showed her work for the first time. Joanna Schelks gives young people fresh ideas with her work. Joanna's creations went on display for the first time. Pam Van Wyk presented a colourful display of Australian Bush scenes with her dyed batik clothes. Byfield seamstress Alana Waugh combines patchwork, applique, screenprinting and handpainting items in mix 'n' match resortstyle wear. Allison Wallace's clothes give a crisp linen look in some fashionable suit styles. Pauline Ewart has an individual style with fresh cottons suitable for the Coast climate. Linda Sykes and Jan Collins have created styles from the 1988 women in the arts. Their special touches give flair and personalisation to each design.

"Dredging is obviously a vital part of the reclamation and that work depends entirely on the cyclone season. Sepember 5 was our final date for the start of seawall construction and we've missed it.

Pensioner idea 1 I WOULD like to comment on the article in the Back of the Mirror, wherein Mr Cranny wants to increase the population considerably. In the last 10 years the Iwasaki development has provided about S100 million in the area, I would say, mostly in material and labour costs. At a wild guess this could have increased the population by 1000 people, and to suggest that the population be increased by another thousand, a similar incentive must be provided. Once Emu Park was considered a pensioner's retreat but the trend is now the other way, and with a sewerage scheme envisaged, it will be more so. With the present conditions next to the garage at Emu Park, an epidemic is imminent, if weather conditions prevail that will favour a virus. I was recently at Emu Park and wanted a tin of rolled oats, thought I'd be loyal and pay, perhaps, an extra 10 cents, but on inquiry, found it was 90 cents, so I went out and filled my car with fuel, at least that made me happy. I'm sorry to be all gloom and doom but you asked for opinions. - S A Robinson, C/- Eventide Homes.

Pensioner idea 2 OPENyour eyes James Hill haven't you seen all those southern guests every winter? There are our potential future residents. The question asked every time: "What are the summers like here?". The backpackers have got their act together, what about lbw cost units to house older citizens in winter and then long service leave participants and families over the other months. Maybe council could lease one unit from Iwasaki for low cost!! Further to James Hill's discussion with Mick Cranny. Retired does not necessarily mean pensioner. Maybe retired people could be encouraged to invest in local business. They could see their investments being utilised. Why waste the experiences of a lifetime. If you knit their lifetime experiences and talents with showing young people how to set up business and if locally financed. Retired people have families visiting so we need better and cheaper transport to meet

Pensioner idea 3 IN RESPONSE to Mick Cranny's suggestion in "The Back of the Mirror (September 2), I have no objection to wheeling in another thousand geriatrics. I can just see it now, 500 brand new 4WDs going down the middle of the Coast road at 40 kph. These people are more likely to be quiet living and law abiding; less likely to set fire to palm trees or grow marijuana. Bringing in more pensioners is, to my mind, a far better alternative to building an international airport, high-rise buildings or encouraging more Japanese investment. - Name withheld.

Reader's 'Bravo' to Cr Mather THE recent decision of Livingstone Shire Council to pass a censure motion against Cr Mather is nothing more than a flagrant attempt to silence a dedicated, hard-working and most able councillor. Anyone who knows Cr Mather would never question her integrity or her capacity to withstand the intimidatory tactics of those other councillors who are well renowned for pulling the wool over the ratepayers' eyes. The ratepayers of the Livingstone Shire are most fortunate to have a person of the calibre of Cr Mather, and performances to date would suggest she has far greater ability than all her opponents put together. Bravo Cr'Mather! Your attempt at keeping the bastards honest will undoubtedly have the overwhelming support of the ratepayers of this troubled administered shire. - L Webber, Tungamull Road, Cawarral.

MATHER HIRES HALL FOR WATER WORRIES DIVISION 4 Livingstone Shire Cr Glenda Mather has hired the Caves Hall for Saturday, September 17 from 2pm to 4pm to give her division the opportunity to talk about the water consumpton issue. Cr Mather said ratepayers could discuss the water consumption issue or any queries about such accounts. "I have decided to hire the hall after a number of phone calls about water rates," she said. "New residents and some of the older ones

might like to discuss the issue. Educating people in knowing what water they can use, how to read their meter and how to calculate their own accounts in this respect, is important. "In the past anomalies have been found regarding charges and people have been overcharged excess water rates." Cr Mather has pursued the water issue for a number of years. She hopes the open afternoon will help clear up some problems associated with water consumption. "Educating ratepayers to calculate their water rates and to know something is wrong and out of the ordinary can put a stop to problems," she said. Cr Mather said she would be happy to answer any questions and if she doesn't know the answer, will find out and get back to the questioner. She said the opportunity to talk to her would be a great way to iron out problems and discuss any worries. "It's better to understand, get shown how to calculate rates and not be left in the dark," she said. "It will not cost anything ... just bring along your rate notice." Cr Mather said anyone could talk to her at the open afternoon. She is also available by phoning 36 1195 if someone is unable to see her on that day about water consumption issues.

Fire ambulance police 'all quiet' THE Capricorn Coast's police, ambulance and fire brigade services all reported a quiet week and no major incidents. Yeppoon-Emu Park District Ambulance superintendent Geoff Reynolds said it had been a quiet week with no hassles. Yeppoon Police officer in charge Sgt Ken Tanzer also reported a quiet period. He thanked people who have assisted with the hit and run accident and inquiries are continuing. A Yeppoon Fire Brigade spokesman said nothing eventful had occurred.

CapCoast bundled out of finals in fluctuating Institute match CAPCOAST was bundled out of the 1988 finals by a powerful Institute side, going down 25 to 12, last Saturday at Rugby Park. Both teams scored two tries each in a strangely fluctuating game, the difference being five booming first half penalty goals by Institute half back Jason Hetherington. Hetherington, current under 19 Queensland' representative, was in top form landing six from seven with a goal kicking display rarely seen in Rockhampton. With an amazing first 20 minutes, Coast found themselves down 15 nil and almost straight after Institute fullback scored a superb solo try when his swerve and pace left his markers for dead. The score read 21 to nil and the students looked ready to run riot. Instead CapCoast dug deep into their reserves of stamina and although Institute was still controlling the lineouts Coast wrested enough ball to mount a few sustained attacks. With 10 minutes left in the first half Mick Bongers made a solid run before unloading to Dave Ruck who dived over and converted his own try. The score was still an unbelievable 21 to 6 at half time. The Coast side played with more purpose in the second half and looked swifter and more menacing even though they couldn't sustain Institute's drive in second phase attack. Flanker Mick Bonger's work rate was exceptional. Wes Dawes, Paul Marshall and Brad

Flynn gave good accounts of themselves. Mark Harris and Steve Kavanagh were the best of the Coast pack with Harris' defensive qualities proving invaluable near the end. Hooker Paul Marshall scored a consolation try right on full time but the Coast side never really recovered from its early setback. The final score Institute 25, CapCoast 12.

YEPPOON Aussie Rules under 17s didn't lose a game all season and in the grand final proved why, by beating Brothers all over the ground. Danny Bromley played a great game, setting up many scoring opportunities for his forwards from the centre of the ground. Chris Woods left his best game of the year for the right game, a fine display in the ruck, winning almost every centre bounce he contested and also took some fine marks. Tim Mynott, another of Yeppoon's best players, made some bone-jarring tackles that left opposing players wondering what hit them. These tackles, backed up with his fine ball skills, made him one of the main players in Yeppoon's win. It was a fine all round effort by both teams and the senior experience which many of these players possess showed in the game. It was the third U/17 grand final win in a row (1986 to 1988). Presentation night is in Yeppoon Town Hall on Sunday, September 11 at 7pm. Everyone is welcome. YEPPOON Aussie Rules under 15 side started against Parkhurst as underdogs, but much to the players credit came out winners ...

they hadn't defeated Parkhurst all season. Dale Wetzler lead well and took some great marks all over the ground, an excellent display. Chris Lawer did an excellent effort at fullback repelling many of Parkhurst attacks and starting some of Yeppoon attacks. Ronald Mackie showed great skills all day whether it was marking, kicking or ground skills and with that great boot set up many forward thrusts. Grant Thorpe, another good player, ran all day never giving up - he was always in the packs getting the hard ball and was rewarded for all this work with the best on ground award. It was a great effort by the whole team. They fought hard for four quarters in a close scoring game. Yeppoon 10-10-70 d Parkhurst 9-6-60. Goalkickers: D Caddy 3, R Mackie, A Deurloo, C Gibbons, S Petterwood and G Thorpe one each. Best players: G Thorpe, D Wetzler, C Lawer and R Mackie. THE under 13 Aussie Rules grand final between Yeppoon and Parkhurst last weekend was unfortunately controlled by Parkhurst for the majority of the game. Parkhurst's taller players proved the difference between the two teams. Yeppoon fought hard all day and was well lead by Nathan Farlow, David Lawton, Shane Franke, Mick Lawton and Shane Campbell, who was awarded the best on the ground ... a great effort. A special mention to Stephen Horstman who was announced under 13 league best and fairest. Best wishes to Brad Hirning who was injured in the game. Parkhurst 7-10-52 d Yeppoon 3-2-20. Best players: Shane Campbell, Nathan Farlow, David Lawton, Shane Franke, Mick Lawton and best goalkickers were Peter Dean two and Doug Edwards one. "It was wonderful to see the support at the ground - do hope these people remember this excitement at the beginning of next season, and help the boys right from the onset of the season," Yeppoon Junior Australia Rules publicity officer Yvonne Motton said. "Sincere thanks to the coaches, team managers, property managers, and anyone who helped in anyway at all physically or financially during 1988."

Seagulls say Swans will be toast of Coast YEPPOON Seagulls Rugby League president Cr Maurie Webb said that all Coast league players would be with the Swans on Saturday in the grand final bid. Cr Webb said they would be the toast of the Coast when they bring home the big prize. "All major football codes have done extremely well in 1988 and it is now up to the flying Swans to clinch that big year," he said. "Those officials and players in the team would be having a big build up this week. There is nothing like grand final fever ... it's infectious. "Good luck Swans, you have earned your grand final berth. There should be many league followers on Saturday to cheer you on. "Celebration champagne is supposed to be pretty special. Here's hoping you have a big taste of it on Saturday night."

LAST week's item about encouraging pensioners to come to the Capricorn Coast to live brought about an interesting reaction from two people who wish to remain anonymous. The first said there were three reasons why he was against pensioners ... the 500 couples would buy 500 homes that were now bringing in full rates for the council and, after getting concessions, would turn those homes into "losses" for the council, and therefore the rest of the ratepayers. Also, he reckoned 500 pensioner couples would come here because of the way the place is ... and there would then be "1000 more people arguing against change and stopping the Coast's progress". For some reason, the man didn't want to write a letter to the editor which would include his name! • • • THE second comment came from an equally well known man who also wasn't looking for publicity ... he reckoned a pensioner would not move to the Coast "because there's nothing here for them". He compared the Coast with Rockhampton where he said places like Sche.'" Place gave pensioners their own hall wk they could stage concerts at will. Also, the Rockhampton City Council gave bigger rates discounts to pensioners in the city ... so why would they move here? He gave further instances but agreedmany older people would like the Coast for its climate and views; but he said pensioners needed more. 'They need a nursing home, and the Coast still hasn't got one ... yet," he said. "They want pedestrian crossings so they don't have to spend all day waiting for a motorist to be aware of them and give way!" • • • OK, so there's two views. There's two more views in the letters to the editor section. But the idea still has merit. Vince Cranny's idea of Putting feet on the Street is a good one because pensioners, today, are able to command a steady income and have needs that can be satisfied in Coast shops. But it's not a one-way street with pensioners providing everything and the Coast giving nothing in return. The Coast already has a nucleus of fine bowls, indoor bowls and golf clubs. It also has doctors, a good public hospital and anew private hospital just weeks away from opening. A nursing home is not far off (apparently) and there's always the beaches and fishing. But Vince's idea wasn't just a "quick thought" ... he felt a campaign to attract pensioners would have to be launch "after" the shire had done a bit of pulling together and put together a "package". That package, if handled correctly, would include a council statement of intent toward pensioners along the lines of "benefits to pensioners in the way of rate rebates" and whatever else was considered necessary. Business people could offer incentives to pensiq s (OK, they do now) which would be displayed on posters in windows. Signs could say "Pensioners Welcome" and shop assistants could be trained to provide older folk with a chair ... and courtesy. Well, it's an idea, mull it over. It may be adopted one day ... when we're all pensioners and expect this sort of treatment! • • IF you're wondering about the colour pictures and all the tourism information wrapped around this week's Capricorn Coast Mirror, wonder no more ... the copy you have is one ofi 103,000 printed for visitors to Expo. It was made part of this week's Mirror to show everyone what is being done to promote the Shire of Livingstone to the tens of thousands of people visiting Expo. It was paid for by Coast business people and organisations who responded to a call from shire chairman Cr John Bowen and fellow councillors to make the end of Expo a rip-roaring success for the Coast and the rest of the shire. A meeting was held last Tuesday morning in the council chambers and the idea was put to everyone present. A second meeting was held on Thursday and two projects were authorised ... the cover you've just seen and another brochure which will also hit Expo but is designed as an on-going promotion for the shire. Needless to say, more money is needed. If you want to help, phone the council (393388) and say you want to help. Either shire clerk Jim Brown or Cr Bowen, or anyone, will be pleased to take your name ... and cheque! • • • •

THEN there's the dog that keeps follong his master to work, regardless of what steps are taken to keep him at home. On Wednesday, the dog made what could have been a fatal error ... it dropped in at his mater's workplace, saw a man at the front counter and rushed up to him and licked his hand. The man just happen to be ‘council's dog-catcher!!!
