Pie shop fire exposes danger: Coincidence in addresses puts business at risk A COINCIDENCE involving two council depots, two creeks and two pie shops in streets called Charles has highlighted a problem with the 000 emergency service. Last Friday about 4.45pm Don Machan from Yeppoon Crane Hire noticed smoke billowing out of the shop next door ... Armies Pies. Mr Machan rang Yeppoon Fire Brigade where a recorded message told him to use the 000 service. He dialled 000 and was answered by a woman on the switch. "She asked what service and area," he said. "And then asked if I wanted Rockhampton or Gladstone. I said I wanted Yeppoon, but she again said Rockhampton or Gladstone. "I said there was a fire in a pie shop in Charles Street and it was just across a little bridge on the way to the council depot. "She put me through to the fire brigade and I repeated where the fire was." Mr Machan then phoned Annies Pies' proprietor Lance Lawer at his home. Mr Lawer rushed back to the pie shop to be greeted by smoke. In the meantime Mr Machan had switched off the electricity and gas. Mr Machan said about 15 minutes had elapsed between his phone call to the 000 service and Mr Lawer arriving at his shop. Mr Lawer had left the shop early to pick up his wife from hospital. He had left a cooker on with chickens and it had boiled dry. "I flew down expecting smoke and the fire brigade but there was no fire brigade and plenty of smoke," he said. "I re-rang the 000 service to say everything was under control and there was no need for the fire brigade. "I was answered by a woman on the switch who said emergency, what service? and then Rockhampton or Gladstone. I said twice it was Yeppoon." Mr Lawer said the girl at the switch had said -you're the person with the fire at the pie shop. L,I said yes and repeated I no longer required the service at Yeppoon," he said. "This was about 5.15pm." Telecom and the Rockhampton Fire Brigade confirmed the first call was made at 4.48pm. The second call went to the exchange at 5.04pm. Rockhampton Fire Brigade chief George Grassie said the brigade had no mention of Yeppoon and had sent a fire truck to a pie shop in Charles Street near the council depot and a creek at North Rockhampton. Mr Grassie said the brigade had patrolled Charles Street, North Rockhampton, looking for a fire but eventually recorded it as a malicious phone call. It was only in passing a Coast officer was asked if there was a Charles Street with a pie shop in Yeppoon. Mr Lawer said Yeppoon Fire Brigade had arrived at 6pm with a fire unit knowing the fire was out but to check what damage had occurred.

Dial 000 for emergencies THE free 000 emergency service number must be used by Capricorn Coast residents in case of fire and police emergencies. Callers will be answered by a Telecom operator who will answer 'Emergency. Which service?' Followed by 'Which town?' The Capricorn Coast is in the Rockhampton district and the operator will connect the caller to the service he/she requires (fire or police) in Rockhampton. When the caller is connected to the Rockhampton service he/she must give detailed information of where the emergency has occurred... house number, street name, closest intersecting street, landmark and town or suburb. The Rockhampton service then relays the information to the Coast service. Remember, you are talking to Rockhampton fire or police officers. Help them in anyway possible with local directions.

Burnett St, Yeppoon - 39 1410

Sydney-to-Brisbane speedboat record inspiration for brothers THIRTEEN years ago Peter Morley set out from Sydney in a 16ft Haines speedboat pushed by a 150hp Mercury outboard ... 14 hours, 13 minutes and 1 second later he arrived in Brisbane. That record stands today ... and his sons Stephen and David reckon he "did it the hard way". They should knows they were talking just a few hours after they had slammed their way from Mackay to Rosslyn Bay in Hynautic, a 28ft cat pushed by twin 200hp Yamahas. They lost the prop from their port motor about an hour out from Rosslyn Bay and were at Cooee Bay Marine helping mechanic Craig Bailey make repairs. As entrants in the Pacific 1000, a blue water ocean race from Cairns to the Gold Coast, they understand the punishment their father withstood setting his Sydney-to-Brisbane record in 1975. Stephen was a student at Carringbah High School when that record was set and he recalled on Tuesday how his father made preparations for the race. "Dad loaded a heap of people on board the Haines to simulate the weight of the fuel he would have to carry for the trip," he said. There

were people everywhere ... then Dad opened it up to get it on the plane. "It was from experiments like this he worked out the prop pitch he would need for the trip. He carried 110 gallons of fuel (about 500 litres) to cut down on fuel stops. By comparison, Hynautic carries two 600-litre fuel tanks (that's six 44-gallon drums) ... but they are not necessarily filled on any leg of the race. Stephen Morley preferred not to say how much fuel he carried, or used, on the Mackay to Rosslyn Bay leg ... "you don't want your competitors getting hold of that information". Asked to elaborate, he said the amount of fuel needed was carefully estimated so that no unnecesary fuel was aboard ... "carrying 200 litres extra means pushing an additional 400-odd pounds of weight for the whole race for no purpose". That makes sense. So does the line the driver/ navigators wear that cuts the motors if they're thrown out of the boats in the heavy seas they encounter ... and the safety gear, including helmets they wear. Then there's two compasses and thick, he-vy foam padding in each driver's "hole". In fact, the more time spent looking at an ocean-going

• CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 He said the lack of response disturbed him. "Everything was done correctly," he said. "Don Machan dialled 000 which we have been told is the correct thing to do in an emergency and passed on the information he felt was necessary to direct the fire brigade to my piemaking premises. "If he neglected to give sufficient information for Telecom or the fire brigade in Rockhampton to find my premises it's not his fault ... the people answering the phone have the public's safety in their hands and they should have procedures laid down which ensure the correct information is gathered from the caller. "It's obvious from what Don told the fire brigade that he had given extremely detailed information on how to find my premises. It's disturbing that this information could also apply to an area in North Rockhampton, " he said. "In places the size of Sydney and Melbourne, from which our tourists visit, coincidences of this nature must be much more common. "No doubt Sydney and Melbourne emergency services have laid down strict procedures to cope with problems of this nature. Smaller areas such as ours should have a much easier time sorting out such coincidences. "Luckily no one was hurt, nor was the damage severe. But I'm glad my home isn't situated in Charles Street, across a little bridge on the way to the council depot." Confusion about the Rockhampton and Gladstone question was blamed as the major cause for this mishap. Telecom said exchange operators had a set procedure when dealing with the special 000 service. Telecom said the operator will answer the phone by saying emergency, which service? Followed by which town? At this stage anyone phoning in is asked to clearly state what service and where they come from. The operator then types the information into a computer and, in the case of Yeppoon, it states which phone number is to be dialled. Yeppoon is in the Rockhampton district and the call is then dialled through to the Rockhampton service required. The service, at the present time, using 000 is the fire brigade and all calls go to the Rockhampton Fire Brigade. (Yeppoon Police suggest emergencies for their service also to be directed through 000.) The caller is asked to give full information to them and then the Rockhampton Fire Brigade alerts Yeppoon Fire Brigade and relays the information. People ringing from the Coast are asked to clearly state where they come from, with the nearest street intersection to where the emergency is located. Yeppoon-Emu Park Ambulance superintendent Geoff Reynolds said every town has a Mary Street or Hill Street, or Charles Street, and it was important to identify the area you were in. Mr Reynolds said Rockhampton had diverted some 000 services to Yeppoon as had the Gold Coast. "The 000 service is great for people on holidays or without change," he said. "We prefer locals to continue the 39 1211 service because we have two lines open 24

KEEP OFF FOOTPATHS! BIKE riders were reminded this week to "keep off the jolly footpaths" and the underaged to stay off licensed premises by Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer. "It could be embarrassing for yourself and parents if you are apprehended in licensed areas," he said. "We are continually policing the under-aged." Sgt Tanzer said under 16s should utilise the under 18 discoes. "The more you support these functions, the more the organisers can think of holding them on a regular basis," he said.

hours every day. It is best for us to get first-hand information." Yeppoon Police said they preferred the 000 service. "It is better to go through Rockhampton because Yeppoon isn't manned all the time," an officer said. "Yeppoon officers are sometimes out in the car and if a caller tries Yeppoon there maybe no answer, but if they go through Rockhampton the police can use the two-way radio to forward the information." The officer did recommend that the 000 be used in an emergency and that all general police inquiries go through the normal 39 1400 number. The coincidence which led Rockhampton Fire Brigade to send its fire truck to the pie shop in Charles Street, North Rockhampton, has highlighted a problem with the 000 service which can only be overcome by callers clearly stating the service needed and area they come from. Some people believe after being connected that they are talking to a service in their area, but the Coast is in the Rockhampton district and all calls go through the Rockhampton headquarters first and are then relayed to the specific Coast service.

UNITS GET PRIORITY MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton said expansion of pensioner units on the Cap- , ricorn Coast was one of his highest priorities. Mr Hinton said this week, in parliamentl. many senior people in the electorate were ot,.„.... 1 of touch with their families, living in caravan parks or sub standard homes needing repair. "They are in difficult circumstances," he said. "I am very pleased that with the assistance of Family Services Minister Peter McKechnie, we have been able to provide eight new units at Bill Shuttlew000d Lodge and have eight more due for construction in Whitman Street. "These units are only half a kilometre from the shops and, being close to existing units, make for a close community." Mr Hinton said the units were valuable because they provided first class accommodation at low rates pensioners could afford. "Rentals range from $27 per week for single people to $39 per week for couples," he said. "The units contain every modern facility. "Every time a new unit or housing commission home is constructed, it makes available other accommodation, which is vitally important to the community's well being."

QTTC head to hold CTDO/CCTO talks QUEENSLAND Tourist and Travel Corporation general manager Ken McGill and Stuart Moore will visit Central Queensland on Wednesday, November 30. The meeting was organised so Capricorn Tourism and Development Organisation and Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation representatives could hold discussions. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton met Mr McGill in Brisbane on Monday and outlined problems afflicting the Central Queensland tourism industry including conflicts between the CTDO and CCTO. "Mr McGill will be attempting to assist the organisations to find a structural formula for the C 1DO that will resolve these problems," he said.

Mr Hinton said Tourism Minister Geoff Muntz had already been invited to meet Coast tourist operators on December 16, when he will open the CCTO information centre. "The CTDO's structure must be revamped to provide for effective coastal representation that includes the sub regional organisation and its membership," he said. "The CTDO has only about 10 per cent of its membership on the Coast and is not representative of Capricorn Coast tourism. "The Coast sees Rockhampton as getting favoured treatment in the promotional material and needs representation that will ensure this will not happen. I am determined that this difficult issue will be resolved."

Police warning: make it hard for criminals to steal your goods YEPPOON Police officer-in-charge Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer this week warned Coast residents against being willing victims to break and enter thefts. Sgt Tanzer said too many people were giving thieves an open invitation to steal household, car or boat goods. "Don't be a willing victim," he said. "Make it difficult for a thief and take positive action to protect property and bring offenders to court." Sgt Tanzer said break and enters, and stealing, had increased in past months. People were making it easy for thieves to sell goods by not recording serial numbers or engraving items with identifiable marks. "The community can help police by listing all their valuables, take note of serial numbers and make use of the police's free vibro-engraving service," he said. "In the situation of parked cars, lock all valuables in the boot, or hiding spot, and better still leave them at home in a safe place. "Check boats, and assess your own personal security and property security. Make sure you can secure your house and fix that broken window - thieves can enter that way." Sgt Tanzer said the community had to make it hard for a criminal to steal. "Don't leave money lying around," he said. "The police cannot effectively run without sensible and fairminded community support. Be aware of people acting suspiciously." Sgt Tanzer said recalled a day when he (dressed in uniform) was trying to enter a car. The owner had locked the keys inside.

"A woman was driving past, saw me trying to open the car, and stopped to ask if I was a real policeman," he said. "She didn't take the situation on face value and I commend her sensible approach. More community-minded people are needed. "It wasn't her car and she could have driven past without bothering to stop. An area can be better policed and served with people being more concerned." Sgt Tanzer said the recent spate of break and enters had involved businesses and houses. "Winter is finished and now with the onset of summer more people will be in the area holidaying and visiting," he said. "People should take time now to assess their security. Start thinking security and don't get caught. Don't worry about being a sticky beak. "In a country town no-one can move without everyone knowing what's happening. We have to become like country towns to combat the stealing." Sgt Tanzer said he realised a lot of people didn't want to involve themselves because they considered it interfering. He is also aware that people are afraid to talk to the police because they may have to appear in court and give evidence. "Everything the police are told is treated confidentially," he said. "We never break confidentiality. The only time a person would have to appear in court is during a major case where government law requires the giving of evidence." Sgt Tanzer said minor offences didn't need court appearances. "If you see someone suspicious take note of the place, time and description of that person, it maybe all the police need to help piece together the jigsaw," he said. "The police get personal satisfaction in bringing to justice thieves. The real winners are the people in the community. "Help us rid the community of the parasites who live off the free gifts - they thank you every time doors are left wide open."

The meeting is at 7.30pm on Monday October 31 at the CWA hall and will be attended by Rockhampton Main Roads Department officers, Mr Hinton, Livingstone Shire councillors, Emu Park Progress Association members and the general public, to consider the desirability of a roundabout and if required, what available plans would be the most appropriate. Mr Hinton said he had obtained approval for the construction of the roundabout following representation from the Livingstone Shire Council, Emu Park Progress Association and the Emu Park branch of the National Party. There is concern among some businesses adjacent to the proposed roundabout that it could cause parking problems and reduce business opportunities. "As a result I have convened a public meeting so that all aspects of the issue can be aired and we are in possession 'of all the facts before making a decision," Mr Hinton said.

A spokesman said the CEC offers all people in an electorate a say in adopting government policy. They are entitled to exercise their rights as members of the council and can take part in the democratic right to inform their elected representative of what they feel. "The CEC executive does not have any power to decide electorate policy," the spokesman said. "It will ensure CEC principles are adhered to and adopted. "An executive position is one of a willing worker and not a position of power to boost any one person's importance within the community." The group's only stated policy was Citizen's Initiated Referendum. The idea of CIR is to give people the chance to vote within existing laws to introduce and recall politicians and public servants who weren't seen to be properly performing their duties. Professor Walker said there were now more than 110 Citizens Electoral Councils formed in Australia.

Fun-run starts State school's Great Fete BILLED as the Great State Fete, Yeppoon State Primary School's major fundraising venture will be held tomorrow, Saturday in .the school grounds from 11am to 3pm.

A CITIZENS Electoral Council was formed for the seat of Broadsound at a public meeting in Yeppoon Town Hall last Friday night. Council chairman is Mark Geissmann, vice chairman is Rhonda Gray, secretary Mark Dolan and treasurer Betty Stroup. Guest speaker was Dean of the Faculty of Law at Queensland University Professor Geoffrey Walker who addressed the 60 people at the meeting on Citizens Initiated Referenda. He also spoke in favour of forming a Broadsound Citizens Electoral Council. Mr Walker said time was running out for the lucky country because it was being governed by an oligarchy of big government, big unions, big money and big media. "History will judge us very harshly if action is not taken," he said. He described the CEC movement as an "extraordinary phenomena" which started in Barambah ... the seat held by former Premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen.

Goss sees need for more 3-star accommodation

• ABOVE: Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation representative Blossom Hooper was official tie-cutter last Friday at Bayview Tower. The latest in a long line of politicians to have his tie shortened was State opposition leader Wayne Goss.

STATE opposition Leader Wayne Goss told a CCTO-sponsored meeting at B ayview Tower on Friday that tourists needed more three-star accommondation because ordinary Australians could not afford the five-star that was being offered. He said the private sector had "done the fivestar thing well" but was not doing enough at the three-star level. The answer was for the State Government to give the lead with research and development. His party believed the volume in the tourism industry would come from the domestic market, and Australian tourists, plus those from Europe, America and Japan, wanted three-star accommodation. 'The average Australian can't afford to stay on an island or in other five-star accommodation," he said. 'They want three-star. Then we can attract tourists from overseas." He said Queensland was best suited to provide the diverse holidays that people want. "Tourists don't want to spend four weeks at any one location." Mr Goss said tourists wanted a mixture of surfing, reef, outback and golf over their four-week holiday. "If you look at Central Queensland, look at what you have to offer ... look at the opportunity that has been missed," he said. Central Queensland was a strong region "but no-one is putting it together". He supported the CCTO' s push for its own funding saying there was a need for a strong, regional body but also said: "You can't promote yourself in Sydney, Melbourne or overseas ... but the State Government can. That's what the State "ovemment should be doing". Speaking later on the CCTO' s push for its own funding, he said the case should get a boost in the lead-up to the next State election because Broadsound was a marginal seat. "You need to get more than Press releases and advertising. You need to get funding," he said.

Goss: State needs plans STATE Opposition Leader Wayne Goss told a CCTO-sponsored meeting the State Government was putting too much emphasis on the Gold Coast and Cairns in its tourism drive. Mr Goss, speaking at a lunchtime meeting at Bayview Tower on Friday, said Queensland needed a Regional Development Strategy. Too many things were treated too easily in Queensland ... there was not enough planning. Because Queensland was the most decentralised Australian State, Mr Goss said it was "very important to have a planned economy" There were new growth industries such as tourism but it was a "disgrace there had never been a comprehensive Regional Development Strategy". "Tourism in this area has a lot going for it but they (the State Government) has not done the planning." He said the Labor Party in Queensland had its membership spread out throughout the State and lid more Central Queensland members on its Csi adow frontbench than the National Party had. Speaking further about Central Queensland, Mr Goss said the Regional Development Strategy was needed to counter the "glamour areas" of Cairns and the Gold Coast. He would be coining back to the Coast to outline his plans in future months. These plans would include a recipe for strong growth.

HINTON CLAIMS PERSONAL TRIUMPH MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton has claimed the gazettal of Byfield National Park, stage 1, as a personal triumph. Mr Hinton said Conservation, Environment and Tourism Minister Geoff Muntz announced the gazettal on October 20. The park encompasses an area of 4090 hectares north of Corio Bay, previously known as Bayfield. Mr Hinton said it was a "magnificently scenic area with superb beaches, melaleuca forests and flowering heath lands". "It will benefit tremendOusly from tender loving care administered by the State's National Parks and Wildlife Service," he said. "Proper camping facilities and amenities will be provided, and protective measures will be taken against fires and littering that have marred the area in recent years. "It will be a magnificent recreation area and

asset to the Central Queensland tourist industry." Mr Hinton said he secured the area for National Parks following a public battle last year with the then Premier, SirJoh Bjelke-Petersen. "I have personally shepherded the process of establishment of the park through every department," he said. "Clearing it with the Mines, Lands and Premier's Departments. "It has been a long haul but it is finally achieved and the area now belongs to the Queensland people." Mr Hinton said stage two of Byfield would be ascertained following designation of sand mining areas with R Z Mines Limited. "This will be expedited as quickly as possible," he said. "The cause of conservation has taken a great leap forward and the people of Central Queensland are the winners."

Conservationists revelling over govt's Byfield Park declaration CAPRICORN Coast conservationists have been revelling in their latest success ... the gazettal of Byfield National Park. Capricorn branch of the Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland president Pat O'Brien said gazettal meant Capricorn Coast residents had a major national park withing half-an-hour's drive from Yeppoon. The Capricorn branch has tried for nearly 25 years to have Byfield, part of the Shoalwater Bay military training area, gazetted a national park. Byfield contains sandmasses, swamps, mountains, fast flowing streams, beaches, rocky headlands and plains. It has been a popular long weekend destination for campers, trail bike riders, fishing people and four-wheel drive enthusiasts. Gazettal will mean few restrictions for the average Coast person. Mr O'Brien said stage one would need a management plan that designates camping areas, improves vehicular access to the park and beaches. Mr O'Brien said the Coast branch would now lobby for gazettal of the balance of the proposed national park, which would extend to the Byfield township and includes the late pockets of remnant rainforests in Queensland. "The gazettal is very significant for Coast people because of Byfield's major tourist potential," he said. "And, the larger the park, the more we can claim and protect, and develop into a popular destination like such places as Carnarvon Gorge. "Byfield has almost everything except large cliff areas. Its educational value is immense. Not only does gazettal preserve flora and fauna but also it gives people the chance to see and investigate our heritage." Queensland Wildlife Preservation Society director Don Henry was on the Coast this week - after flying from Brisbane - to talk to Coast branch members. Mr Henry said stage one gazettal was a boon but it still only represented one-third of the original gazettal proposal put forward in 1969. "It is important people realise that what national parks are gazetted over the next 10 years is all we will have," he said. "Development is moving at such a pace any available land will be cleared, sold and developed. We will never again be in the unique position of setting aside future parks." Mr Henry said one reason for the urgent push to see the remainder of Byfield gazetted national park was the authority to prospect approvals to sand mine. "Sand mining and national parks do not mix," he said. "You cannot bring back what nature's taken 1000 years to create. "The hard decision must be made now and it will only happen with the community's backing." Mr Henry said he didn't believe people could afford the luxury of another 20 years - the time to get stage one gazetted - for gazettal approval on the remaining land. Byfield's gazettal is part of an overall coastal strategic plan involving Byfield, Curtis Island, Rods Peninsula, Deepwater and Urimbula. Byfield has a wealth of flora and fauna: five out of eight large wallaby types live in the area as well as more than half of the native pigeon and dove species. Byfield supposedly includes some of eastern Australia's least-disturbed coastal and .subcoastal habitats. A mixture of tropical and temperate conditions has resulted in Byfield being a conservationist's haven with more than 30 per cent of Australia's total.. bird, mammal and reptile species to be found in the area. Byfield's rainforest area and sand dune - a

Chamber to meet LIVINGSTONE Shire town planner Scott Stewart will be guest speaker at the monthly Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry meeting on Tuesday, November 1. Chamber president Tony Millroy said Mr Stewart would be giving an informative talk about Livingstone's town planning. He urged any interested parties including developers and real estate agents to attend the meeting at 6.30pm in the Bayview Tower Motor Inn. "Mr Stewart will endeavour to iron out any problems or concerns with the town planning system," he said. His talk will last 45 minutes and a question and answer session will follow. General business will be discussed before Mr Stewart starts his talk.'

suitable home for the rare ground Parrot - are of particular ecological interest. Bandicoots, kangaroo and wallaby - plus a possible sighting of the Northern Rat Kanagaroo - brushtail and ringtail possum, and all five glider types can be found in the tall open forests. Nature has provided a home for the platypus in Waterpark Creek and the presence of forest red gum indicates the existence of koalas. A massive list of birdlife including the rare Red Goshawk have been observed. Pigeons and doves, especially fruit-pigeons are prolific. Other pigeon species include the red-crowned, purple-crowned, topknot, white-headed, wornpoo, green-winged and brown. Byfield is not only important for its fauna but also its flora. The foredune thickets along the east coast beaches are vital to the survival of seasonal migration of rainforest animals. The exposed beaches in the national park show many active blowouts and sandblows the result of wind gusts exceeding 160km per hour and effects from storms. Sand dunes, up to 9km long and more than 150m high, are features of the beaches. Some minerals have accumulated on the beach, basically made up of yellow siliceous sand. Shallow freshwater lakes and mangroves add to the area's attractiveness. Former National Parks branch forester Peter Stanton said Byfield encompassed nine terrain patterns. Kangaroo grass can be found in areas not occupied by heaths while small hardy herbs. including Helichrysum and Blue pincushion are in abundance. Spinifex-Impomoea herbland forms the first line of protection from the sea. Backing this is the familiar fringe of Casuarina. Black she-oaks mix in the open scrub while eucalyptus, banksia and casuarina are the main flora types in scrub areas.

Real Estate, Auctions - our auctions result in one sale, two negotiations, one passed in PR1CORWCOAST - MIRROR-

FOUR auctions in the past two weeks have resulted in one sale, two further negotiations and a block of land being passed in. L J Hooker Yeppoon's Nick Callianiotis said auctions of two blocks - one at Prospect Street and the other in Cordingley Street - had a mixed response. A possible buyer is still negotiating a price for.

six acres in Prospect street. This auction attracted a crowd of 15 with bidding stopping at S10,500. The other land auction involved half-an-acre in Cordingley Street. The land passed in after the 516,000 reserve price wasn't reached. Mr Callianiotis said he was pleased with the results. The Professionals Emu Park office also had a mixed bag of success with one definite on-site sale and another sale being negotiated. Auctioneer at Saturday's sale of land in Gap Street, Doug Woods, said about 12 attended but few were bidding. Gap Street's 514,000 reserve price wasn't reached but a local buyer has been negotiating. Two weeks ago The Professionals sold a rural property for $140,000 to a Sydney buyer, Barry McIntosh. Green Meadows a 24-acre farm was sold to Mr McIntosh from Cronulla. Mr Woods said the turn out to this auction had attracted quite a few people. "Traditionally auctions were accepted by the community only as a last resort," he said. "However, people are beginning to see it more as a first option and it is becoming an acceptable way of buying and selling."

Pacific 1000 a race of endurance ATHISGRADE SQUASH week was the second last week of the Capricorn Coast Squash fixtures. A and taking each day as it comes current coincidence in the draw saw the four mai contenders for semi-finals positions play each THE Pacific 1000 is all about endurance and taking each day as it comes ... ever)/ day boats and crew aim to make it through the day and finish. Yeppoon signals the halfway point for competitors. The six-day competition starts in Cairns and finishes at the Gold Coast. The leg from Mackay to Yeppoon is considered the roughest and toughest section of the race. Going into day three the two leading competitors - both in class A -Shampoo and McKnight Signature broke down and didn't complete the leg. Winning this leg was EIT Mover. In second place was Lowes (a class B powerboat). Classes are determined by size ... Lowes is 9.76 metres and the bigger vessels can go to 11.59 metres. Lowes, built and owned by Harold Lowe, is unique ... it is the only timber handmade boat. The six other powerboats were built out of fibreglass. A boat costs about $180,000. Lowes public relations officer Barry Moore - and Harold Lowe's co-driver - said powerboat racing wasn't a sport for someone operating on a shoe string budget. Mr Moore said repairs and maintenance weren't cheap and it was best to have the backing of assets if considering the sport. Lowes is capable of reaching speeds up to 136km/h and is powered by three V6 outboard engines. Mr Moore said speed depended on conditions. "The past two sea legswere rough but the remaining legs should enable us to stretch out the speeds," he said. It hasn't been plain sailing for Harold Lowe and his team of eight. During day one of racing the powerboat blew a gearbox and eight kilometres out of Yeppoon the boat spun a bush out of a propellor. Harold Lowe steers and navigates while Barry Moore controls the throttle speed and trim angle (angle the boat runs on). The back-up crew includes seven people as well as a truck to tow the boat, crew support truck and station wagon. The tow truck leaves early each race day while remaining crew wait until the race starts (about 9am each day). Tuesday's leg from Mackay was given the earlier time start at 8am because it is known as the roughest leg. Mr Moore said it wasn't the longest leg but there were no benefits from islands to knock down waves. The boats looked forward to the remaining

three days' racing because the incidence of islands signalled a smooth run to the finish. Overall, Lowes is placed third or fourth. Mr Lowe said they were fairing a lot better than other crews. "Normally one boat-a-day pulls out because of break-downs," he said. "Today (Tuesday) three, including the top two, broke down. Mr Moore likened riding in the powerboats to constantly falling from a two-storey building. "You lose all fear," he said. "You become fearless when it comes to every day life." It's Mr Moore's first race but Mr Lowe's second. The boat is also in its second endurance race. Last year, the brand new Lowes, incurred a number of breakdowns but this year they had sorted out the problems and remarked on the relatively smooth trip to date. The boat was docked at Cooee Bay Marine, owned by Vince Welsh, for general maintenance. Mr Moore said general maintenance was needed to anticipate any problems and sort them out before the next day's racing. On Wednesday, the group set off at 9am for the fourth leg to Bundaberg. FOOTNOTE: The seven competitors had an uneventful start from Rosslyn Bay Boat Harbour on Wednesday morning but the City of Townsville entry broke down soon after (at 10.05am) just out from Keppel Sands. The land crew picked up the boat from Cawarral Creek. Lowes entry and EIT Mover also suffered breakdowns near Gladstone. This leg was won by Shampoo with Ocean International, second.

%Very little' money in racing big boats • CONTINUED FROM PAGE / powerboat the more sense it makes ... until prizemoney is mentioned. Stephen Morley used two words to sum up how much first prize was worth ... and they meant "very little". Anyone contemplating entering the Pacific 1000 would have to have a lot of sense; and even more cents. It's , big business. Stepehn and David estimated they would be out-of-pocket at least $15,000 and more like $20,000 by the time they reach the Gold Coast. That figure did not even include the cost of buying the boat, the motors, the trailer, the support vehicle. It did include the cost of running these items, plus the personnel to man them. But they were happy. They had started the leg second overall and, even after losing a propellor ($600 on its own, without the shaft it took with it) they were still fourth when they made it to Rosslyn Bay. They regard the race as good advertising for their businesses, Gold Coast Hydraulics at Southport and Energy Hydraulics in Sydney, where they live. These businesses are involved in supplying and fitting steering gear from the United States. They can recommend the gear because they've tested it before and they were in the middle of testing it again in this race. Craig Bailey owns Marineland at Tarens Point in Sydney and he also takes time off work to race because it's in the line of duty. It's hard to get enthusiastic about a sport that has a limited number of entrants because boats cost around $200,000 to put in the water and then drain even healthy pockets in running costs but there are skills involved that. have to be admired. Stephen Morley realised he was talking to an amateur when he was asked the following question: "Why carry a navigator ... don't you just head out of Mackay and turn right for Rosslyn Bay? He patiently explained that while he did turn right, he then headed 40 miles out to sea where he was out of view of land. The boats carry charts pointing out navigational points to head for ... "but at 60 miles per hour it's hard to see anything," he said. "Sometimes, when you're 40 miles from land, can't see anything but water and you're getting pounded around you start to wonder why you're racing at all." One thing is certain, they're not racing for the money ... but whatever it is, their record-holding father was sitting on an oildrum watching repairs. He's still interested!

other on Wednesday night ' Top team Navigators defeated second team Odds and Ends 3-1. The result was much closer than the scores indicate with Odds and Ends losing two of the matches in five. Larry Owens accounted for Val Odell in five while the Nobs Drillis-Andrew Dowie match provided the greatest interest. Andrew came out firing in the first with tight drives and crisp boasts and drops to win 9-1. Nobs countered to win the second 9-4 against a looser Andrew. Andrew won a cliff-hanger third 10-8 after many close rallies and hand-outs. Nobs replied wth another 10-8 and with both players tiring, Nobs took control in the fifth to win 9-1, as Andrew failed to find direction and length. Carl Hudson, playing as reserve for Professionals, gave Danny Tanks food for thought when he took the second game 9-3. Danny then outran Carl to win in four. Peder Dale performed well for Professionals to win in three against Lyn Witts. Neil Roberts came out ahead in his match against Chris Hacker in what is becoming a traditional five. A number of players represented the Coast last weekend in the Rum City Open Tournament. held in Bundaberg. Val Odell was successful, winning the special ladies plate event.

T J Bradford Pacific Heights Estate Country Stakes (1440m). Man of Integrity was part of the first winning double on September 21. Both horses were ridden by jockey John Stephens ... also a double for him. Recent southern purchase Opaque Flash made it three wins in as many starts in the area, when he led all the way in the Kempsea Undercover-Keppel Water Taxi Restricted Handicap (1000m). Opaque Flash, owned by Bill Stark of Gracemere and trained at Alton Downs by John Cooney, had previous wins at Ridgelands and

Local bettors bested bookmakers on the Tyrer Park events when three of the four favourites passed the camera first - Opaque Flash (9/10), Parafan (4/5) and Man of Integrity (6/4). Silver Report broke the bookies drought at 20/1.

Big Cup Day for Yeppoon races Tent patrons will also be able to watch the Foster's video This Fabulous Tuesday, a history of the Melbourne Cup, plus southernraces and the Cup itself on Sky Channel. Shaver's Surf Shop is sponsoring a roving fashion parade of beachwear. Models will make a number of changes throughout the race day and will meander through the crowd instead of parading on the catwalk. The Yeppoon meeting is one of about six expected throughout Central Queensland but organisers are pleased with the 34 nominations they have received for the four races. Racecourse gates will open early Tuesday to allow Cup Day patrons to make a full day of it. The Seafood Luncheon will start around Noon and the four local races will start after the running of the Melbourne Cup.

The menu of fresh crabs and prawns, seafood mornay, lasagne, chicken and salad can be topped off with champagne from the bar that will operate in the tent.

Coast cricketers defeat Souths for second outright points win Evinrude has always been the industry leader in powerful portable outboards. Our new 1988 portables prove it.

Coast won the match by eight wickets for 41 runs from 20 overs. Second grade will play Grammar at the Grammar school tomorrow (Saturday) starting at 12.45pm. If luck is running with the second graders it certainly is against the third graders who have suffered another outright defeat to Etna Creek. Coast was dismissed for 89 runs in the second innings after being forced to follow-on (first innings scores Etna Creek 187-Coast 58). Darren Petterwood top-scored with 29 while Dale Wetzler made a patient 11. Dale Wetzler was the Coast man of the match for his steady but unbeaten knock of 24 in the first innings.

CAPRICORN Coast athlete Darin Coombs overcame a painful groin injury to take out first place in the open boys' discus at the Queensland track and field championships on Saturday. Darin, who attends Ipswich Grammar School, pulled a muscle in his groin during a training session leading up to the competition. He is now attending a physiotherapist and will start light training next week for the Pan Pacific Games. He was selected after winning his discus with a 49.14m - below his personal best throw of 52m - after a disappointing shotput where he finished sixth. The Pan Pacific Games from December 3 to December 9 in Sydney has athletes from 22 countries competing ranging in age from seven to 18 years and are held every four years. It is expected 4000 students will converge on Sydney to compete in track and field, and swimming and diving events. Intellectually and physically handicapped athletes will also be competing at these games. Darin was selected in the national team for the annual track and field titles on December 10, 11 and 12 in Canberra.

Ike back aF the Wilma SOME, not all, journalists have a nose for news and they pride themselves on being able to sniff out a story anywhere. Some claim they were born with it, others achieve it with time and experience ... and those with a Shakespearian bent claim they had it "thrust upon them". The worst thing that can happen to any journalist is to lose that "nose" That long intro leads into the Pacific 1000 boat race from Cairns to the Gold Coast. "Old Baldy" has an aversion to events of this nature. He has nothing personal against the sponsors, the drivers, the navigators, mechanics, hangerson or spectators ... but he thinks it's silly that so much money is spent racing a boat out at sea where no-one can see it then claiming it as a spectator sport. He reckons it's like 12-metre yacht races. As a result, "OB" told Suzy this year he didn't think it was worthwhile the Capricorn Coast Mirror covering the event ... "Look, they blow in early Tuesday morning and blow out again early Wednesday morning," he told Suzy. "No-one notices, no-one cares ... the perfect example of here today and gone tomorrow." So, on Tuesday morning, the boats blew in and "OB" slugged away at hi computer. He rationalised that the CCTO's hosting of the dinner on Tuesday night had been given page-three publicity so all was right with the world. By Tuesday afternoon his "nose" was twitching ... these huge powerboats were being dragged down the main street to service stations and around the traps for repairs. Everywhere they went they drew crowds ... drivers craned their necks to see them as they passed; pedestrians stopped, pointed and starting chatting to others nearby. Finally, with his "nose" itching, he rushed back to the office to talk to Suzy ... "Have I lost my nose for news? Am I wrong? Should we be covering these money machines?" Suzy, patiently, waited for him to rundown then told him many people were interested in the boats. It was only natural; lots of people owned everyday cars but watched formula 1 racers. Lots of people owned tinnies and, as a result, were interested in huge powerboats. "Well why aren't we covering this race?" 'OB' screamed. Suzy, patiently, said: "Because dear, you said we weren't going to cover it.". The Mirror wound up covering the powerboats!!! •

ONE of the hardest jobs in newspapers is interviewing someone who has been a friend for years, especially when you're young. People you've known as "Uncle" Fred or "Aunty" Pat suddenly become awkward. Rhodes Watson has overcome the problem with ease ... talking to Barbara and Lew Fitchen about their Valley Vista plantation this week, he simply referred to them as Akeland Barloo, their scouting names from, hiaJ youth. At least he remembered not to put out his left hand to shake! •• • FROM the Mirror's world-wide resources comes this item ... France is noted for its wine industry, and practically everyone there drinks wine. Italy is known for its pasta, and Italians are known to eat pasta. Germany is noted for its beer ... and Oktoberfests are spreading everywhere. Yeppoon is noted for pineapples ... but are they a daily/nightly dish? Not if you talk to pineapple growers. In fact, one grower reckons Yeppoon consumers regard pineapples as an item that should be on sale at "three large ones for a dollar". You know, that means local consumers expect one of the sweetest, juiciest fruits known to man (woman, person) to cost about 33 cents a kg. That's cheap eating. What other natural source of sugar and fibre costs so little? Maybe it's time we all started having a good look at our own home-grown industry and started supporting it. It's just like shopping locally ... to do so brings prosperity to your own town. And, N,,,Ln the long run, we all benefit!
