$100 million Wild Duck Is. project will shun 'norm'


A S100 million project set amid 126.5 hectares of lakes, national park, beach and island is off to a flying start at Wild Duck Island off Stanage Bay. Wild Duck, 48kms from Stanage Bay and by boat one-and-a-half hours from Mackay, will be transformed into an holiday destination which will shun the "norm" in promotional features. The Whitsunday area has its white, sandy beaches with clear blue sea surrounds to promote. Wild Duck Island will take the emphasis from the ocean and beach to the inland. Surrounded by national park land to the east and west will be a 150-unit resort hotel fronting a lake. A secondary 50-unit resort, 450 villas, health centre, nightclubs, recreation facilities, 18-hole championship golf course and airstrip will be built over three stages and within five to seven years. Town-planning applications were lodged with Livingstone Shire Council after representatives from the consulting engineers and design management group addressed the September meeting. Consulting engineers and planners, representatives from Sinclair Knight and Partners, Greg Long and Neville Selvey outlined the technical details while Design Management Group's Alexandra Skaft laid down the reasons for building the resort. Alexandra Skaft said, geographically, the emphasiswould move to the island's centre and not to its surrounding beaches and water. Part of the reason is the turtle beach which is one of Queensland's main turtle rookeries. The developers environmentally want to look after this beach through restrictions and rigid control. Wild Duck Island is two continental islands joined by a cave. It is 1170 hectares and also boasts an Aboriginal midden (a place aborigiles gathered to eat shellfish). It is expected, at its optimum, to have about 1100 guests. Passage to Wild Duck will be by plane ... the only visible feature from air will be the airstrip. Plans to incorporate a marina with the resort is being investigated.

THE Capricorn Coast is setting itself for the event of the decade when Livingstone Shire Council's water filtration plant is officially switched on by Finance Minister Brian Austin on Friday, September 30. "The water filtration plant switch on was the fulfilment of my biggest election promise at the 1986 State Election ... clean water for the Capricorn Coast," Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said. Mr Hinton congratulated the Livingstone Shire Council on its speedy planning and construction of the huge S4.8 million plant. to which the Queensland State Government has contributed a massive S2.3 million. "Clean water will enormously enhance the quality of life of Coast residents, do wonders for the Coast's tourism industry and remove , any doubt as to the "healthiness" of the Coast's water. "The water supply from Water Park Creek. after heavy rains in the catchment area could be putrid. Heavy sediment. and a foul smell soiled the family wash, discoloured drinking water and sent tourists packing. "After September 30. it will be a thing of the past thanks to a forward thinking council and strong State Government assistance" Mr Hinton said. ....••••••••••

Govt guarantee on racing debts



THE State Government has guaranteed that the debts of the Yeppoon Amateur Racing Club will be met by the Racing Development Fund. "A deputation from the racing club last year to then Racing Minister Russ Hinze had secured a guarantee from the Minister that the debt of about S200,000 would be cleared in the 1988/89 financial year by the racing development fund," Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said. The Westpac Bank had accepted that guarantee but sought reassurance from the new Racing Minister Jim Randell, following the departure of Mr Hinze. "Mr Randell was unable to give a definite payment date because of the present high commitments faced by the fund. "I asked Premier Mike Ahern to intervene and he rang Rockhampton's Westpac Bank

manager on or about May 26, and reaffirmed the Government commitment," Mr Hinton said. Following the dismissal of the Yeppoon committee by the principal club, the Rockhampton Jockey Club, a meeting was held in Brisbane between the Premier, Mr Randell, Lands Minister Mr Glasson, Mr Hinton, RJC secretary John Wolsey and Neville Hewitt. "At the meeting Mr Ahern confirmed that the debt would be paid out as soon as finances would permit and in the meantime, interest payments would be met by the racing development fund. "This puts the club under the administrator in a sound position to advance the interests of the club until a new local committee is elected. "I have advised YARC administrator John Wolsey, in writing, of this position."

Work to start later this year on 40-bed nursing home - Minister CONSTRUCTION of the S2 million nursing home at Yeppoon is expected to begin by the end of thisycar Health Minister Leisha Harvey said last week at the Yeppoon National Party branch meeting. "Preliminary site work was already underway to determine the most suitable plan for the 40 bed home," Mrs Harvey said. Construction was expected to take about 10 months to complete. "The home would enable elderly Yeppoon and district residents to receive quality care in a familiar environment," she said. "These people were often previously forced into hospitals or had to move away from their friends and families to receive appropriate care. "Care for the aged is of increasing importance as the number of people 65 and over in , Queensland has increased by 18.7 percent since the 1981 census. "At the same time the number of children aged 15 and under has increased by only 5.6 percent," she said. "Queensland had increased expenditure on nursing homes by 183 percent from 1977 to 1987. "The Queensland Government had also increased funding available for projects under

the Home and Community Care (HACC) Program which caters specifically for the needs of elderly and disabled. "This year the Health Department will make available, on a cost share basiswith the Federal Government, 537.589 million under the HACC program." she said. "Grants were made to about 62 government agencies and 308 community organisation throughout Queensland under the HACC program." They go towards home help/personal care services, community care nursing, centre and home based respite care, delivered meals services and other HACC services. "These programs enable the elderly and dis• able to remain in their own home rather thaw being admitted to long term residential care."

Daley out-voted in move to have expenses debate in committee DIVISION 1 Cr Lawrie Daley was out-voted when he moved two motions dealing with councillors' expenses be dealt with in committee. Cr Daley moved that the two motions by Cr Glenda Mather - a notice to rescind and notice of motion - be committee items. Cr Mather said there was no point in deferring the motions to committee because they were only budgetary items. The motion was lost and the two issues debated publicly. The motions met with mixed success. The first dealt with Cr Mather's notice of motion to rescind a resolution, moved on July 22/23, 1986 that the chairman's travelling expenses to functions be met by council. This motion also said that at particular functions to which the chairman is invited on behalf of council, and where he is required to pay, he be reimbursed for expenses. In background information Cr Mather said the resolution conflicted with the revised chairman's allowance decided at the August 1988 budget meeting. "Considering the 55000 allowed per annum for petrol, I feel that S96 per week would be considered more than a generous concession even for the most ardent councillor," she said. "I also feel that the 54472 increase to the existing allowance (or S86 per week) is adequate to cover the payment of those functions to which the chairman has been invited. "In all, I would consider that S576.92 per week would be an acceptable allowance for any local authority chairman." Cr Mather said the motion was also supported by chairman Cr John Bowen. Cr Bowen said the motion was superfluous and open to ambiguity. The rescission motion was carried but the notice of motion was unsuccessful. Cr Mather's notice was, that in addition to mileage allowance, members of official council committees receive payment equivalent to half of the normal meeting day fee, when the meeting time does not exceed four hours. In background information she said with the 34.4 per cent allowance and meeting expenses increase for the 1988/89 financial year council should be endeavouring to show constraint and

accept a half day's wage for a half day's work. The motion was lost with many members expressing a concern that a whole day, whether only half was spent at council, was lost. It was said special consideration should also be given to councillors financially unable to travel to a meeting, have it finish within the four hours, and then turn around to return home. Cr Mather said her motion Aidn't imply meetings should finish within four hours but a half s day work should only be paid a half day's wage and not a full wage. These thoughts were echoed by division 3 Cr John Smith. A foreshadowed motion and an amendment to consider special circumstances were proposed but these were also lost. Cr Mather recorded her name agaiiist the loss of motion.

COUNCILLORS' PAYMENTS PAYMENTS made to Livingstone Shire councillors for August, 1988: Shire chairman Cr John Bowen, S2644.50 (S4725.17 since July '88); deputy chairman Cr Brian Dorey, 5609.50 (S1075.67).

LIVINGSTONE Shire Cr Glenda Mather publicly defended her actions during the September meeting after an August censure motion about her manner and method in relation to the Main Roads Department supervision fees paid to senior council officers. The censure motion was instigated by deputy chairman Cr Brian Dorey, who also replied to Cr Mather's statement. Wasted time and money was his main reason for the censure motion. Cr Mather said her actions were prompted by the need to sort out the main roads supervision fees problem. Her detailed account rebuffed Cr Dorey's six reasons used as background information. A retraction and public apology were both mentioned by Cr Mather. However, Cr Dorey defended his motion and said every councillor was entitled to speak and Cr Mather had done her duty, "just as I have". Cr Dorey said his references to time and money spent on discussing the main roads issues had been hypothetical figures. He said blame for the 55000 already spent on the supervision fees issue was ... protracted debate, officers tied up in research and calls on legal advice, and not Cr Mather's stand. Cr Mather asked that her statement be included with the meeting's minutes. Following is the censure motion put by Cr Dorey at the August meeting regarding the manner and method of action taken by Cr Glenda Mather in the issue of Main Roads Department supervision fees paid to senior officers of Livingstone Shire Council on the grounds of: 1.Failed to offer Livingstone Shire Council a 52 page document dealing with the Livingstone. Shire Council's consideration of Main Roads supervision fees payments when that information may have helped resolve the issue more quickly. 2. Continual loss of time at meetings caused

"What's the point of having business discussed in committee only to have it repeated word-for-word," he said. Cr Mather then addressed the table. She reminded council leaks occurred before her time and they should look for the common denominator. "If anyone wants to accuse me of leaking, do it and I'll take you on," she said.

by exhaustive and often repetitive questioning without first giving adequate reason or cause for such actions. 3. The increasing costs being incurred to council through questions on notice, protracted debate, officers' time in researching these matters, and call on legal advice. This is believed to have cost about $5000 since this council was been elected and at the present rate of expenditure could reach 545,000 by the end of this term. 4. Misleading statement by Cr Mather in the second paragraph of release in the Morning Bulletin, August 10, 1988 concerning contravention of the Local Government Act, "extravagant and unnecessary spending". 5. The adverse affect that statements in the first five paragraphs of Cr Mat her's press statement might have on the reputation of myself, the chairman and shire clerk. 6. Whereas Cr Mather may be attempting to resolve the issue over the Main Roads supervision fees the manner that is being adopted is breeding mistrust, doubt and innuendoes which are destructive rather than constructive and may be detrimental to the reputation of Livingstone Shire Council and attempts to build and improve the viability and desirability of the shire. Cr Mather replied to Cr Dorey's motion with the following points at this week's meeting. 1.I failed to offer Livingstone Shire Council a 52 page document dealing with the overpayments because members were given the information from council in the first place. Why offer it back? It was obvious to me that council could not satisfactorily resolve the issue, even with the information in hand. It also appeared to me that this council was prepared to forego what I saw as public money in order to cover a series of mistakes on council's part. Thus the decision to seek outside help. 2. If it wasn't for the repeated efforts of some members of this council to suppress my attempts to gather all the relevant information relating to the overpayments, I have no doubt the matter would have been finalised to the satisfaction of all concerned much sooner. 3. It appears Cr Dorey has accused me of wasting 55000 of ratepayers' money on protracted debate, research and questions on notice, not to mention legal advice. If it weren't for those who attempted to gag debate on the issue, there would be no further need to continue in such a drawn out fashion ... which was the only. alternative open to me according to chapter 33. These objectors can only blame themselves. If Cr Dorey cannot clarify and prove my sole responsibility for the "of about 55000 since this council was elected", then it may be in Cr Dorey's interests to retract the statement and make a public apology. As for the "call on legal advice", Cr Dorey may have forgotten that the mover and seconder seeking legal advice came from Cr Daley and himself. The opinion from King and Co, as well as that of Mr Schirmer on the second occasion, had nothing to do with me, but could be seen to have been the result of Cr Dorey's trip to Brisbane. I would see Cr Dorey's "expected expenditure" figure of S45,000 as nothing more than a hypothetical scare tactic - unless he expects that similar controversial issues might come to life in the future. 4 and 5 If Cr Dorey fears for the reputation of himself, the chairman and the shire clerk in relation to the Morning Bulletin article, August 10, 1988. I can only say he should have considered this aspect before contemplating the trip to Brisbane at the ratepayers' expense, and without authority from the table. It was after discussions with the Director of Local Government that I made,the statement. I will not condone what I believe to be illegal expenditure - irrespective of who authorised it. I would have expected that longer-serving members of council had a more intimate knowledge of what they were approving each month and certainly over a number of years. Cr Dorey may feel the need to reprimand my actions, but I have never been accused of evading my responsibilities, and I don't intend to start now.

It will be held on the Capricorn Coast in October and is hosted by Livingstone Shire Council.

Weekend death WEEKEND activities were marred by the death of a Coast man in a single vehicle accident on Kelly's Landing Road. Jeffery James Scott, 30, of Yeppoon died when the car he was a passenger in overturned on Saturday at about 2pm. The driver and another passenger, both males, were taken to hospital with multiple scratches, injuries and suspected fractures. Yeppoon-Emu Park District Ambulance superintendant Geoff Reynolds also reported three cases of dog bites in the past fortnight. Mr Reynolds said the same dog had allegedly bitten three people. Capricorn Coast residents are also reminded to be on the look out for snakes after a 34-yearold man was bitten on Sunday. Mr Reynolds said a number of snakes had been identified by the ambulance including two venomous Easter Browns. Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer said Saturday's accident was the only major incident in the past week. He commended school children for their commonsense in resisting shoplifting but reminded them that skateboards and bicycles should not be ridden on footpaths. A Yeppoon Fire Brigade spokesman reported a quiet week with no major incidents.

ABOUT 200 building surveyors, architects, engineers and builders will attend the 12th annual Australian Institute of Building Surveyors Queensland Conference on the Capricorn Coast in October. The three-day conference will feature 19 papers on a variety of building topics to be delivered by some of Queensland and Australia's leading surveyors. Livingstone Shire Council was selected in January to host the conference from Wednesday, October 19 to Saturday, October 22. While Livingstone is the host, the Central Queensland Building Surveyors' Association is carrying out the planning. Livingstone Shire council employees John Milne, the association's secretary, and Ken Hodby, its treasurer, have been instrumental in the co-ordination and organisation. MrMilne said it was only the second time the conference had been held in Central Queensland. The first was four years ago at Gladstone. The Central Queensland association includes Emerald, Peak Downs, Belyando, Duaringa, Broadsound, Rockhampton, Fitzroy, Livingstone, Gladstone, Calliope, Banana and Mt Morgan shires. He said surveyors from Queensland's 134 local authorities were expected to attend the conference. Invitations are also being sent to Central Queensland builders, architects, engineers and any other people interested in building. Mr Milne said the conference was expected to cost about 522,000 but donations, registration and sponsorship should offset this figure. Mr Milne said topics would interest both large and small shires. "We plan to include talks pertaining to different climates and areas ... not just focus on one place," he said. Topics will include: • New law. codes to be introduced including masonry and concrete. • Sydney's National Building Technology Centre building studies manager Howard Leslie will discuss "Achieving good access for people with a disability is very much a team effort" and principal research engineer Lawrie Schneider will discuss "Earthwall construction in Australia today". • James Cook University technical director Greg Reardon has a paper on "Wind loading code, section 2, simplified procedure". • Other speakers will be from the Capricornia Institute; Queensland Timber Research and Development Advisory Council; Geographic Information Department; CSIRO; Besser Ltd; Fosroc Australia; Local Government Department; Crane Enfield Metal Pty Ltd; Daryl Knight Pty Ltd; James Hardie and Coy Pty Limited; Monier Metal Building Products; Connolly, Schirmer and Batts Solicitors and Paul Cruice, Architect. Mr Milne said the conference would be held at the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort. Activities had been arranged for partners accompanying conference delegates, including day tours.

Chairs for auction A PUBLIC auction will be held to give all Livingstone Shire residents the chance to buy damaged chairs from council. The auction was thought to be the fairest solution after an application was made to buy two damaged chairs for S20. Deputy shire clerk Kev Lloyd said that a similar application had been made before. "At the time it was considered more approporiate to dispose of surplus chairs at public auction," he said. "To accept an offer as received, may be looked upon as some form of preference. A public auction gives everyone an equal chance."

PINEAPPLE FESTIVAL DETAILS • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 "This annual exhibition of paintings, pottery, porcelain painting and crafts has become a most important event on the cultural calendar in Livingstone Shire. A high standard of works always attracts lovers of art, connoisseurs and artists themselves." A garden and trade fair display will be on display from 9.30am to 3pm in Beaman Park on Wednesday and Thursday. Beaman Park is also the site for the pet parade on Thursday with sections for the best small pet, most loveable, most repulsive, most unusual and best dressed pets.

There's an art and craft exhibition by the Mill Gallery, a fashion parade by Gadabouts, and hair fashions featuring "Direction" by Salon 24.

The street attractions open at 10am followed by a junior wheelbarrow race from the Railway Hotel to the Strand for 12-17 year-olds at 10.30am. There will be compulsory stops at each check point for glasses of pineapple juice. The senior wheelbarrow race, with compulsory refreshments at the Railway, Pacific, Club and Strand Hotels, starts at I lam. This year's festival is expected to attract a large procession of floats. They will assemble in Queen Street, between Anzac Parade and Hill Street, and move off at 1pm. Floatswill be entered in sections: best tourist theme, best pineapple theme, most comical, most original, most colourful, the best decorated bike and costumed rider for boys and

THE structure of the Capricorn Tourist Organisation and its effectiveness as a regional tourist body will be discussed in Brisbane next week at a meeting between Tourism Minister Geoff Muntz, Industrial Affairs, Vocational Education and Training Minister Vince Lester and Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. Mr Hinton, who initiated the meeting, said current moves by the Central Highlands Tourist Organisation, supported by Mr Lester, to break away from the CTDO, and the dissatisfaction of the Coast-based Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation were reasons for a reappraisal of the tourist organisation structure. "The plain fact is that tourism in Central Queensland is not firing, despite the area's natural attributes. Under the present administrative arrangements the area is not pulling together and division is rife," Mr Hinton said. He said he did not believe the Central Highlands' move would be successful.

constraints alone were sufficient reasons why the Central Highlands would not be allowed to form a separate region, because each separate region had an allocation from the Queensland Tourism and Travel Corporation of S85,000 a year. "What appears to be needed is more subregional autonomy and some apportionment of the State Government grant between the subregions according to the size of their tourism base," Mr Hinton said. "The Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation would need to become affiliated with the CTDO with workable and effective representation satisfactory to both parties." Looking at the overall picture, Mr Hinton said Gladstone had already broken away from the Rockhampton-dominated CTDO, the Central Highlands and Mr Lester want to break away, and the Coast was divided. "We will need to consult closely together to achieve a solution at government level and if the local parties cannot agree, then such a solution may ultimately need to be imposed from Ministerial level," he said. Mr Hinton said the problems of division had been going on for years although there were now talksbetween the CTDO and CCTO to reaffiliate. "The State Government will have a role to playunlcss a satisfactory percentage of promotion funds are directed to the Capricorn Coast," he said.

• ABOVE: Capricorn Coast Outrigger Club n: barking on a long paddle in an Hawaiian outri Dave Ruck, Mark Boyd, captain Blue Flawn,

Hawaiian outrigger Coast with latest s GLIDING through the ocean, reaching eight knots at times, is the Capricorn Coast's latest water sport ... an Hawaiian outrigger. Two six-man crews train daily in the 40-foot fibreglass outrigger which is a fast-growing year-round ocean-going sport. The Capricorn Coast Outrigger Club was formed in July this year but outriggers have been a keenly-contested sport in Queensland since their introduction by Keith Williams and Max Christmas at Hamiliton Island six years ago. Most week days the crews can be seen training at Yeppoon's Main Beach. Club president Michael Cervai and club captain Ray (Bluey) Flawn were the instigators in forming a team. Mr Cervai said both had competed in several outrigger competitions. They decided to pool their knowledge, find a sponsor, buy a boat, and form a club. There are two racing forms ... sprint and marathon. Sprint racing can be from 300m to 3km while a marathon can be between 15 to 70km. Mr Cervai said all outriggers were identical, no team had an advantage over the other. Outriggers are 12 metres long, one-and-a-half metres wide and one-and-a-half metres deep, weighs 200kg and is capable of racing in either flat or rough water. Two bars attached to floats extend from the outrigger. Six-man crew is the maximum allowed however during marathons over 24km nine rowers are allowed to compete, allowing three crew members a rest. Mr Cervai said crews used wooden paddles to power the outrigger. Speeds up to eight knots, 10kph, can be reached. "It is crucial paddles pull through the water at-the same time," he said. "All the emphasis is on climbing and the crew rows alternately, three on one side, about 20 strokes before changing sides. It's a great spectator sport." Each crew member is strategically placed: number one is the stroke maker and sets the pace; number six steers the boat and paddles at the same time; numbers two to five are called the engine room. New, an outrigger costs about S4500. Mr Cervai said Woody's Supermarket had sponsored the first boat which cost 52500. They are looking for sponsors to help finance another outrigger. The Coast teams will test their abilities for the first time this weekend at South Molle Island. The Australian Outriggers Association holds a grand prix circuit at eight different Queensland coast venues. Capricorn Coast is one venue in the circuit which includes South Molle Island, Lindemann Island, Hamilton Island, Hayman Island, Kohuna Resort and Airlie Beach. The circuit finishes at Hamilton Island for the national championships. Races are about six weeks apart. South Molle is the first race and the championships will be 711.j a

canoe providing porting activity held in June, 1989. Queensland's strongest team comes from the gold Coast. Mr Cervai said the sport was good -for surf lifesavers and footballers during their off-season and was open to both men and women. However, while still in its infancy in Queensland, outriggers have been around for many years. Outriggers either originated in Hawaii or Tahiti. Their purpose was for ocean fishing but the islanders modified the boats and streamlined them 80 years ago for competition purposes. It is an old Pacific Islands sport, and naturally, the Tahitians at the last world outriaaing championship won 27 gold medals. World titles are held every two years. The next is in Auckland on January 15, 1990. Capricorn Coast aims to send a team to these titles. Mr Cervai said clubs sent teams to the competitions allowing for many people to represent their country. The last world championships attracted 5000 men and women paddlers.

THE following item was on Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton's electoral office wall and the Mirror decided to print it as a think-piece. Recently in Florida, USA, Judge Alphone Sope imposed a sentence of a year's jail on a 17 -'ears old youth, guilty of possessing hallucino\...,,enic drugs. The judge's remarks in handing down sentence were widely reported in the United States. Speaking directly to the youth the judge said, "Do you know who is going to serve that year? Not you. Your mother and fatherwill serve that year. Your body is in the stockade for a year, but their souls are tormented for a life-time. I have not spent five cents in raising you. I didn't know you from Adam but your mother and father have put their lives, their hearts, their sweat, their money - and everything else they have into bringing you up. And now they have to sit in this court and listen to a total stangcr, who had nothing to do with your upbringing, scold you and put you in jail. This is a time when phoney kids your age arc yelling: 'You adults have your alcohol, we want our drugs. You have polluted ou rwater and air, you have polluted this and that, and the rest of the garbage that comes out of your mouths'. I want you to think of this for one year - and the reason why I say it. Ifyou are sick, a doctor will treat you - and he won't be high on drugs. The lawyer who represents you won't be high on drugs and the people in whose cust ody you'll be, won't be high on drugs. Your a st ronaats are not on drugs, your President is not and your legislators arc not - and the enginecrswho built the bridges you drive across and the tunnels you drive through, are not on drugs - and those who built the planes you fly in and the cars you drive - are not. But in the world of the future, the same may 'n be true. Teachers, doctors, lawyers, legislaNme6rs - products of the new drug-oriented general ion - may well be as high as kites. You won't know whom to send your child to, or whom to trust your life to. 1.ers see what kind of a world you leave your children, before you talk about t he world that we left Ours.

TWO Polynesian-style dormitories will be added to Yeppoon Lions Club's youth camp on Great Keppel Island. Island Camp Committee spokesman Mario Cresta said the club was planning considerable upgradings to the Keppel Island Captain Cook Memorial Youth Camp owned by the Lions Club and managed by Youth Hostels Australia. "Some 16,000 visitors use our facilities every year and the island camp has become selffunding. Profits from the venture have already assisted many community groups, such as the Yeppoon Ambulance which received S10,000 for a fibrillator and we intend to help St Andrew's Hospital purchase its mammography unit," Mr Cresta said. "The club decided to build two low-set eightbed Polynesian-style dormitory dwellings as part of its on-going construction programme. "Our plans also include further landscaping and beautification of the area and the original dormitory built in 1972 will be converted to caretaker's quarters." Caravans standing on the two acre lease adjacent to the Wapparaburra Haven will be removed and the existing large dormitory will be restructured. "The two new units, scheduled for completion in late November, will be available to school groups, backpackers and anyone looking for inexpensive island accommodation," he said. "The Yeppoon Lions Club will also be stepping up its on-going programme of voluntary work in the town's parks and will be constructing a bridge in the native gardens at Lammermoor."

Apprentice chefs win gold medals TWO Capricorn Coast apprentice chefs won gold medals during the annual apprentice chef competition of the year awards held in Rockhampton. Second year apprentice Alister Waller and first year apprentice Julie Bionda won their sections after their efforts in the competition. Awards were given to apprentices from years one to three but none in the fourth year category. Judges said fourth year apprentices hadn't met their stringent standards. Apprentices had to cook a three-course meal and these were then judged on appearance, work, finish and presentation. Alister works at the Keppel Bay Sailing Club and Julie, St Brendan's College. They are both members of the Capricornia Group of Apprentices which enables them to be hired out and not be indentured to the one place. During school holidays Julie has been working at Keppel Bay Sailing Club. Alister has also worked at Fishermen's Beach Restaurant.

Molloys to swap pots for plants ROYAL Hotel lessees Joan and Peter Molloy have sold out and are moving to Rockhampton after nearly six years at Keppel Sands. Their well known faces will be missed by the hotel's many patrons but mother and son have decided to swap pots of beers for plant pots. Mrs Molloy said they had bought a plant shop in High Street but wouldn't start there until October. They both plan one month's holiday. "We could only snatch a day or two before but now we plan to have one month off, although we've still got five million things to do," she said. The Molloys said they had enjoyed their time at Keppel Sands. "It's been lovely," Mrs Molloy said. New lessees George and Kat h Aboud take over on Monday.

Third-party cover now extends to NSW TH E Royal Automobile Club of Queensland has welcomed legislation brought down by Finance Minister Brian Austin to give third party insurance cover to Queensland motorists driving in New South Wales. The Motor Vehicles Insurance Act Amendment Bill will cover any Queensland resident involved in a car accident in New South Wales, ret rospect ively, from the time that State's t ranscover scheme took effect on July 1, 1087. The RACO had been concerned that the New South Wales TranscAWer scheme did not provide Queensland motorists with injury cover, in several types of accidents, once t hey crossed the stat e border.

Transfers, island cruise with boom netting, smorgasbord lunch lunch and underwater observatory are optional extras. Enjoy the new resort facilitiesfor day trippers - pool, shop and bar, etc


a day you'll all remember'

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.

MICK Cranny's suggestion to encourage pensioners to the beautiful Capricorn Coast is brilliant! I presume he has us "wrinklier" in mind and can think of no better place to retire. As well as the amenities he mentioned at Yeppoon, there is an excellent library, with cheerful staff, and an optometrist now in Savemore eliminates the need for a trip to Rocky for

Coconut palm a handsome tree A GOOD specimen of a coconut palm makes a handsome tree, and a group of three or four such specimens seen here and there can be pleasing to the eye. But 1 wonder if there are other residents of the Coast, besides myself who, driving south from Yeppoon along the Scenic Highway, are glad to leave behind the unnatural proliferation of rather sickly looking yellowish coconut palms at Lammermoor Beach, and to let their eyes rest again on the quiet greens and greys of the eucalypts, paper barks (tea trees), and the wattles that constitute a major component in the natural vegetation of the Capricorn Coast. The weeping Cabbage Palms, endemic to this area, are a picture at the moment with their pleasing rounded shape and masses of yellow flowers, and they are just as photogenic to my eye as the coconut palms. Also, they do not drop heavy fruit without warning on unsuspecting passers-by, or on the roofs of cars. Why this fetish for coconut palm? Could it possibly be because some local residents have been growing them en masse and are now persuasively finding marketsfor their product? Or could it possibly be that the real majority, as distinct from any particular group, think that as we are living on the southern edge of the tropics we should be aping our northern neighbours. Why, oh why, can we never in this shire do our own thing, but have to copy the ideas - good, bad and indifferent from other places? - Molly Crawford, 6 Natalie Place, Kinka Beach, Yeppoon.

Colour cover off to England CONGRATULATIONS to the Mirror for your front and back cover pictures. Also for all the information in between. It reads like the lovely old fashioned travel films we used to see on a cold wet evening down south. I have sent two copies to England to be passed among my family. Although I have always sang its praises during the 12 years I have lived here, I could never do Yeppoon the justice that your paper does. Keep up the good work. - A Balston, Whitman Street, Yeppoon.

If you're thinking of drinking... UNDER Queensland's Traffic Act there are three drink-driving offences with which a motorist can be charged. First, there is the major offence of driving or being in charge of a motor vehicle upon a road or elsewhere under the influence of liquor or a drug; and, secondly, being in charge of a motor vehicle upon a road or elsewhere while the concentration of alcohol in one's blood equals or exceeds 50 milligrams per 100 millilitres of blood (.05). The third is failing to provide a prescribed specimen of breath. RACQ advice is that if you are stopped by police and requested to take a roadside breath test, you may lawfully refuse to do so. But you must then accompany the officers to a police station (as you must if you take and 'fail' the screening test). There you will be required to supply a breath specimen for testing on a breath analysis instrument, operated by an authorised police officer. The RACQ warned that refusing to take this test has the same status as the major drinkdriving offence. If the breathalyser shows you are, in fact, under the limit despite the initial screening results, you will be free to leave the station. If you are charged, the RACQ suggests it would pay you to have proof of your identity and address with you, and some proof you have lived there for some time. Should you be found guilty of driving under the influence, you will be liable for a fine or even a jail term, and will be disqualified from holding a driver's licence. If your blood alcohol level was between .05 and .15, you would be liable for a fine of up to S700 and up to three months jail, plus disqualification from driving for between one and nine months - if you have not been convicted of drink-driving within the past five years.

Emergent expenditure LIVINGSTONE Shire Council declared S1140.65 to pay the Valuer General's Department from emergent expenditure at September's meeting. The 1988/89 valuation fees had been budgeted at 528,055 but on September 7 an account was received for S29,195.65. Payment to the department entitles Livingstone to a copy of a valuation roll prepared by the valuer-general and is used for rating purposes.

"We haven't become the largest business/ employer organisation in Queensland from sitting back and doing nothing for the employers of this State. "In response to today's tough economic conditions we have just released a wide range of money saving services for members. Many business people waste a lot of time, money and effort in attempting to get the best prices on deals available," he said. "What we have done for our members is to do the deals for them and stop the time wasting.

CENTRAL Queensland now has a new Queensland Confederation of Industry representative following the appointment of Coast resident Bill Thorpe as membership development officer. "Mr Thorpe is well placed to develop our membership base in Yeppoon and Central Queensland by reason of his business background and managerial abilities," Central Queensland Confederation of Industry manager Graham Bloxsom said. "He will continue the good work started by John Kelly. "Bill would be able to offer Yeppoon business people an extensive range of business services covering industrial relations, award supply, business advisory services, education and training, marketing, promotion, research and export services. "In short, everything a business needs to

Dorey says register dog owners with council and six dogs released from the pound with other dogs taken to Rockhampton. A number of councillors expressed confusion at the wording in the registration reminder advertisement. Cr Glenda Mather said it should have been more explicit in explaining rural residential and town areas to avoid future confusion. It was suggested dogs, unless used for breeding purposes, should be submitted to compulsory desexing. All the suggestions and a further look at a draft by-law will be investigated in Livingstone's ongoing battle to control the dog population.

REGISTERING dog owners, instead of the dogs, was one suggestion Livingstone Shire councillors proposed as a means of controlling the problem. Dogs were again the subject of a long debate during this week's meeting after the health surveyor's report showed there was an average five complaints a day. Cr Brian Dorey moved for registering dogowners. He said it would make it easier to identify owners when a dog was impounded or guilty of other offences. At August 31, 560 dogs had been registered

Farnborough pupils head west * By John Runham NINETEEN Farnborough Primary School year 5, 6 and 7 students went west. Accompanied by principal John Runham and two parents, Raeley Moffat and Alison Runham, the students left Farnborough on September 5 for an extended excursion to Australia's outback to study the sheep/wool industry. The group travelled in a Dowie View Tours bus accompanied by a four-wheel drive support vehicle. On Monday night they stayed at the Emerald North State School and travelled to Longreach on Tuesday. During the journey they stopped at the Major Mitchell memorial, the marker of the Great Divide, the Barcaldine Cemetery and the Ilfracombe Historical Museum. The stop at Ilfracombe linked the past with the present for they discovered the stationary steam engine donated by the Dowie Family. Present owner of the Dowie View Tours, John Dowie, recalls working with it when he was a young boy. A visit to the Longreach Stockman's Hall of Fame and Outback Heritage Centre on Wednesday proved to be one of the highlights of the tour. With its wide variety of displays in many different formats; the hall presents the story of the Australian pioneers from the time of the Aborigines through to the modern day. The children were kept enthralled by the talking stockman, the many video presentations and the wide range of artifacts. During a break for lunch they visited the original Qantas hanger at the Longreach Airport and picnicked on the banks of the Thompson River. The students visited the School of Distant Education on Thursday where they learned first-hand how children on the isolated western properties receive their schooling using correspondence lessons and radio. This was followed by a visit to the Longreach Pastoral College where they took part in loading hay and learned of the many skills required of a western pastoral worker. They watched; with interest, a shearing demonstration but became even more interested as they were invited to "have a go" themselves. A visit to the ABC radio station where they took part in a mock radio broadcast and a ride around Longreach in a genuine Cobb and Co Coach. That night Angela Ganter, who was celebrating her 13th birthday, was given a surprise birthday party by the rest of the class. On Friday they travelled to Muttaburra, a

small outback town on the junction of the Landsborough and Thompson Rivers. On the way they explored a turkey's nest dam and found how the sheep are watered in this arid land. They also discovered the meaning of bulldust. They had a picnic at a local site known as the Pump Hole and competing with the children of the Muttaburra State School in a game of scatterball. The group learned about life in the smaller outback communities. They also experienced the multicultural aspect of life out west because a quarter of the children at the school are of Maori descent, children of the Maori shears who work out of Muttaburra. A visit to one of the oldest homesteads in the district, Mt Cornish, completed the excursion on Saturday. They were able to see the original buildings made of local stone and observe the working conditions of a shearing shed. During the return journey, the good behaviour of the children was highlighted when, during a meal stop at Duaringa, the proprietor was so impressed by their good manners and general behavior she gave them a packet of sweets as a reward. The group returned safely to Farnborough on Sunday, tired but in good health, having had an exciting and enjoyable learning experience.

Byfield, college performances YEPPOON and By-field will host an Australian performance about youth, women and the aged on Thursday, September 29 and Friday, September 30. Clear Asa Bell, funded by the Australia Council Performing Arts Boards and Federal Government's Arts funding and advisory board, will appear at St Ursula's College and Byfield Hall. The show is networked, researched, written and devised by Ruby Red, who is based in Rockhampton, and Kylie Murphy. Clear Asa Bell focuses on stories about youth, women and aged. It is said to be about the human cost of dislocation in the known environment. The show premieres in Rockhampton at Walter Reid Arts Centre on September 24 25 before starting a tour which takes the show to Sydney. The show opens at St Ursula's on Thursday at 8pm. The charge is S10 and concession S5. By-field's show is on the Friday night and is SO and concession S4.

Coast has chance to grow herbs HERBS - a product that requires only a little labour. no fertilisers or sprays - could become an Australia-wide industry that not only providesjobs but also stops a market totally reliant on their importation. The Capricorn Coast is one of the few places herbs are grown in Australia. Yvonne Saint Martin from Saint Martin Herb Garden at Cooberrie said about 99 per cent of Australia's herbs were imported. Mrs Saint Martin said the herbs were grown in Europe particularly the Eastern Bloc. However Russia'sChernobyl disaster contaminated many surrounding countries with radiation fall out and herbs coming from those countries are constantly tested for radiation. Grown for resale, herbs could become a major industry. Mrs Saint Martin said the

markets would buy from Australian growers it assured of the quantity. "There are more than 7000 herb varieties grown throughout the world," she said. "About 100 different herbs are grown on the Capricorn Coast. "Because there are so many varieties people could choose one variety and market it in a big way. Herbs are used in perfumes, cosmetics, soaps, pharmaceutical goods and foods." Mrs Saint Martin said more people should grow herbs. They don't need fertilisers or sprays, just a little labour. The only problem growers would face is how big the crop would be and the number of crops per year. There would be a market if the product was there.

Three speakers at mango meet IT IS A little known fact that there are between 25,000 and 30,000 commercial mango trees in the Rockhampton and Capricorn Coast area. As a follow up to the introdution last season of the new Mango Grade Standards, the Department of Primary Industries and the Yeppoon Fruit Growers will be holding a special meeting at the Yeppoon Sailing Club on Tuesday, September 27, starting at 7.30pm. There will be three guest speakers: Scott Ledger, senior horticulturist, DPI Brisbane;

Phillip Johnson, COD Growers representative, Sydney Markets; Noel Warland, Inspector Farm Producers Commercial Sellers, DPI Brisbane. We would like to see as many growers.., possible, not only from the mango section, but from all sections that use the markets to sell their produce. Growers should make sure they take this opportunity to hear and to talk to these guest speakers. Anyone wishing more information, please contact Lew Fitchen on 39 7638.

Tennis cheque THE Capricorn Coast Junior Tennis Club has been presented with a cheque for 52,166 by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton toward the cost of coaching of juniors. "The State Government subsidises the cost 1/4j)fcoaching at 25 per cent of the actual cost and this is of significant assistance to sporting clubs and greatly assists the development of junior sport," he said. "In excess of S6 million per annum, is made available through sporting subsidies to sports clubs by the Queensland State Government to promote the development of sport in Queensland."

THE Capricorn Coast Cricket Club started its season last weekend with the third grade playing against Brothers-at Saleyards Park. The game was originally set to be played at Victoria Park but the venue was changed at the last minute. Brothers won the toss and sent Coast into bat. A good opening partnership of 49 between Dale Wetzler and Mick Barsby, both of whom made 19 runs each, and seemed to be a sign of what was to come. It was not to be, with the next six wickets falling for 61 runs. Then started a fight-back with an eighth wicket partnership of 49 between Russell Blanchard and John Semmler and the Coast ended its innings all out for 191. Russell Blanchard, who was the captain for this match, was top-scorer with a good knock of 48 while John Semmler followed with a steady 27. At the end of the first day's play, Brothers had made 41 without loss. Coast will have to try and get a few early wickets when play resumes tomorrow (Saturday). Second grade kicked off the season on Sunday against Institute at the Rockhampton Cricket Grounds.

Institute won the toss and surprisingly sent Coast into bat on a hard, flat wicket that was ideal for batting. Coast made the most of a decision that Institute may regret and at the end of the day Coast was seven wickets down for 196. The most outstanding performance of the day was that of Peter Huxtable who remained not out on 81. Peter has had an absence of three years from grade cricket and this knock should give him a lot of confidence and the club hopes he can go on with the job when play resumes on Sunday. Other notable performances came from Steve Pidcock who made a patient 21 and combined with Peter Huxtable to put on a second wicket partnership of 60 runs. Eddie Torr and Danny Tsoumbaras both made 14 while Keith Semmler remained not out on 12. Special mention should be given to Rod Melvin who, not only played in the third grade on Saturday, but also was the first to volunteer for the 12th man position in the second grade on Sunday. "Such dedication is rarely seen in someone so young," Capricorn Coast Cricket Club publicity officer Rick Robinson said.

Crowd turns out for annual championships AN interested crowd turned up to watch the finals in all grades of the Capricorn Coast Squash Racquets Association annual closed champiuonships. Tony Smith won the A grade championship 31 from second seed John Briggs in a match which saw both players cover quite a bit of court in some long rallies. Joe Foat won the Consolation Plate event from Anthony Trump. The B grade championship was won by second seed Shane Miners who eventually wore down Carl Hudson in four. The B grade plate was won by Nick Saunders in a close four-game match. C grade was a family affair with top seed Debbie Shanks, this time defeating husband Larry to become the C grade club champion. Terry Bishton won the plate from an improving Teny Stephens. The women's only was won by second seed May Briggs from Kathy Dale, with Nanette Nissan winning the plate event from Sue Foley in the closest match of the night.

BEST CROWD IN TWO YEARS FOR RACES Bookies hold $77,000 for Yeppoon meet

THE Yeppoon Cup meeting, backed by Coast business people, brought out the crowd to Yeppoon Amateur Race Club on Wednesday. More than 500 racegoers, the best crowd for the past couple of years, provided the eight bookmakers with a total hold for the day of $77,000. Fiery Batchelor won the 1800m. Yeppoon Panel and Paint Yeppoon Cup by three-quarters of a length but had to wait for the outcome of a protest by the second horse, 5-4 favourite Konedobu, on the grounds of interference in the fmal 100 metres, before picking up the money. The win gave Fiery Batchelor his second feature win in 11 days having won the Trainers' Cup over the same journey as Wednesday at Callaghan Park on September 10. Ridden by John Flanders, Fiery Batchelor is trained by Don Black at Sandringham, a property near the Caves. The six-horse event attracted a lot of attention in the betting ring. Third was River Road, the winner of this year's Rockhampton Cup in June. Almost overshadowing the Yeppoon Cup feature event was the double by Gold Parade in both the first and last races. Ridden by Tracey Winmill in both events, Gold Parade is trained by Tony McMahon, a newcomer to Rockhampton racing. McMahon told secretary Leo Mackie on Monday, at acceptance time, he wanted to support the meeting and said he would start Gold Parade twice if it could be given enough time to recover from the first event. Gold Parade won the Yeppoon Readymix Park Stakes over 1000m easily beating the 5-4 on favorite Karara Prince by one-and-a-half lengths. Third was Lord Dunkeith, a further head away. Gold Parade backed up in the fifth and final race, the BP Yeppoon Ser ice Station Barmaryee Plate Handicap over 1200 metres to defeat Chestnut Gold and Palm Court. Punters who considered Gold Parade a good bet after its first win received top value in the final

AGES ago I wrote a par about kids today throwing their one and two cent pieces in the gutter after getting them in change. At the time, I was a trifle shocked at the idea of such waste. Well, "Old Baldy" remembered the item this week after his Expo trip and recalled something that made his hair stand on end. Seems he was visiting someone in some part of Brisbane and managed to find a parking space. There was a parking meter and 14year-old son Rhett jumped out to hit the machine with a coin (he saw a poker machine once and lives in hope of a jacicpot!). Anyway, Rhett calls out thathis 10 cents is useless ... the parking meter wanted a $1 coin. Now "OB" has known Rhett for his full 14 years and knows from long experience that if you give Rhett $10 to buy two cans of Coke he'll return with the Coke and change of $5 and tell you how expensive things are these days. So, rather than trust his son, he checked the meter ... and Rhett was dead right, the thing gobbled a $1 coin. Strangely enough, in Brisbane the kids may as well throw their one and two cent coins in the gutter ... and their five cent and 10 cent coins, too. There is absolutely no use fox them. As a matter of fact, when you empty your pockets at the end of a day you only have 20,50, $1 and $2 coins to throw on the dresser. Somehow, Brisbane has eliminated the need for smaller coins. ••• BY the way, Rhett very nearly became a permanent part of the Brisbane scene ... Suzy, "OB" and Rhett were 2.54 centimetring along in Brisbane traffic when the lights went red and the world came to a smoggy stop. Just then, a bloke crossed the road at the lights carrying a bike wheel. At the kerb he stopped, fiddled around, and seemed to straddle it. "OB," (who's a city kid from way back) realised what it was ... the bloke was riding a Unicycle, the one the clowns ride in the cicus. It had a chrome rim, a chrome seat pole and a shiny black seat. Realising Rhett had the camera, "OB" called to him to get a pic Rhett, seeing the chance to put big brother Rhodes (Mirror photographer) in his place, dived out of the van with camera ready to fire. As his feet his the footpath the traffic lights changed ... "OB," reverting to his former city ways, immediately gunned the motor to burn away from the rest of the traffic. Rhett, seeing his meal ticket drawing away, probably never to return, forgot the picture, ran like the proverbial and dived into the van, muttering nice things about his parents such as how much they loved him because they provided him with exercise even in the big city. So, there's no photo of a unicycle! •

SOME people are touchy about accuracy, like the woman who wrote to John Murphy of Yeppoon Travel Agency aver one of the cartoons he used recently to advertise trips to Nev Zealand. The cartoon, strangely enough, fea cured a Kiwi (wonder why) and the Kiwi "thonged" into Yeppoon Travel Agency to buy a ticket. The woman, who lives at Kinka Beach, wrote a very funny letter to John pointing out that "every New Zealander knows that Australian thongs are not thongs at all. They are Jandals. Yes, Jandals. Jandals are made of plastic or rubber and worn on the feet - in the Philippines they are called flip-flops". The woman then went on to say that thongs, "proper thongs, are made of leather. They are Roman-styled leather thongs. That is what thong means," she said, "a piece of leather, wrapped around the foot. We Kiwis know this, and so we correctly called these 'thongs' Jandals." Now, to show she had a very well developed sense of humour, she closed her letter by saying: "Maybe you meant to say that we Kiwis thronged into YTA? Anyway, your drawings are quite good even if you got your research thwrong!" •

JUST a note on the above ... John Murphy didn't write the copy. Believe it or not, "OB" writes the words and a genius with a pot of Indian Ink named Mike West does the drawings ... but that particular cartoon (repeated elsewhere this week) deliberately included the word "thong". You see, "OB" knew it would annoy Mirror sales rep Dave Ruck (who's a Kiwi) so he showed him the rough before it went to Mike West. Rucky immediately pointed out that Kiwis wear Jandals then gave a long -explanation about the word. "OB" lis tened patiently, agreed with every word ... the told Mike to use "thong" just for the hell of it. When the woman's letter turned up, Rucky couldn't believe his luck ... he'd finally won a point. By the way, even though Jandal is correct, wouldn't someone take offence if the next cartoon featured a Filipino woman who "flipflonned" into the travel agency? \ •
