Bowen: Expo volunteers' efforts ‘put us on map' LIVINGSTONE Shire chairman Cr John Bowen was full of praise this week for the 49 Expo volunteers who had "put us on the map". Describing the shire's foray into the Expo world as an "unqualified success," Cr Bowen said the volunteers' enthusiasm, smiles and knowledge would pay dividends in tourism for years to come. Back on the Coast after spending last week at Expo, he said he was amazed at the reaction from visitors to the Communities Pavilion where the shire was promoting the region on the Central Queensland stand. "I had people coming up to the stand to say they had already been to the Capricorn Coast for a quick look and nowwanted more information for a second visit," he said. Cr Bowen had timed his Expo visit to coincide with its final week. He was able to see what tourism material was left over and work with volunteers to distribute as much as possible and to bring back anything left over. In all, 80,000 copies of the Capricorn Coast Mirror's special 4-page colour issue on the Shire of Livingstone were put into Expo visitors' hands. Cr Bowen said he had brought back 20,000 copies which would be distributed to visiting VIPs and Central Queensland events such as the Cotton and Gem Festivals. The remaining 50,000 copies of a speciallyproduced pamphlet will also be distributed from the council chambers to CQ festivals. "These newspapers and pamphlets have been a side-benefit of our move into Expo," Cr Bowen said. "Before Expo, the Capricorn Coast and the shire as a whole, had not really co-ordinated brochures that encompassed everything a visitorwould want to see ... nowwe have two. "Not only do we have two, but they have been paid for by donations from Coast business people." Cr Bowen said he was particularly pleased with council's role in the whole Expo promotion. The council became the co-ordinator "roviding the central point for meetings and ..,_,...,xchange of information. Julie Hock, who was one of last week's Expo volunteers, called in at the Capricorn Coast Mirror on Wednesday afternoon to pay tribute to Cr Bowen's leadership. "He was wonderful to watch and work with," she said. "He worked out how many of everything was left over and how many he wanted to hold back

then set the pace in distributing what was left. "He dived into queues of people waiting to see various pavilions and charmed them with a line of patter about what our area had to offer. "He also found Brisbane children who were footloose and organised them into an army to distribute newspapers and brochures at the Expo gates and elsewhere." Cr Bowen said he had attended the New Orleans World Expo four years ago. "I can compare the two and I wonder how many people appreciate just how successful the Queensland Expo was for this State and Australia," Cr Bowen said. "New Orleans only achieved one-third of its expected visitors ... Queensland doubled its expected visitors. That was an outstanding achievement for Australia. "In New Orleans, the Australian pavilion was the only one that created queues ... the crowds were so small that other pavilions took visitors as soon as they arrived. "There were queues everywhere at the Queensland Expo. There were so many Expo visitors the pavilions were under constant pressure. "Expo was something that all Australians can be proud of. It has taken decades for Australia to be recognised by the rest of the world. "Now that it has the world's attention, we, as Australians, must do everything possible to keep our flag flying." The difficulty with gauging Expo's success is that visitors don't necessarily mention they are on holidays because of a particular promotion. Expo has also been blamed for creating a "slow" period in Central Queensland because so many people were attracted to Brisbane. Seaspray Holiday Units' Blossom Hooper said she had found a number of overseas and interstate tourists extending their holidays to go as far as Cairns but were not staying on the Capricorn Coast as a direct result of any Expo drive. Como Units' Fay Simons said although booking figures compared favourably with last year, when asked, most visitors said they had been to Expo. "They don't actually say they've come to the Coast as a direct result but it seems a lot of the more mature overseas visitors are still around," she said. "Generally they have gone home. I think the overflow from Expo has affected us in that • CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

THE Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry monthly meeting was held at.Bayview Tower Motor Inn on Tuesday. President Tony Millroy said the last chamber meeting had been poorly attended and there were not enough to form a quorum and asked formally for the meeting to ratify any discussions from the October meeting. In correspondence a letter was read from a Mr and Mrs Thornton. Mrs Thornton spoke out against parking in the town's centre. She had considered buying a business but decided against it after seeing the lack of 'rking in the town's centre. Mr Millroy said the chamber had approached council on a number of occasions about parking and it was an area it would continue to pursue. Central Queensland Federation president Tom Kaunitz, who was present at the meeting, spoke about the federation's point of view on Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton's actions in relation to revamping the Capricorn Tourism and Development Organisation. Mr Kaunitz said the federation was awaiting answers from Mr Hinton for some queries before releasing a statement but thought the basis of the concept was a good one. Chamber treasurer Lyle Spyve said there were $1631 in debts with only $861.95 in ready cash to pay these debts. Mr Spyve told members they had a number of options to pay the shortfall which included cashing in a $769 investment. The accounts to be paid included: Tanby Roses, $22; Capricorn Coast Mirror, $264; Capricorn Printing, $150; Rockhampton Broadcasting, $1000 and Mercantile Mutual, $202.

Mr Spyve said the shortfall had been caused by a $500 donation to Livingstone Shire Council for its Expo drive. Vince Welsh said couldn't members be levied $5 instead of cashing-in the investment. Another suggestion was for partial payments. Trevor White said the chamber should try to pay its bills, especially on the Coast where "there is a lot of small businesses which didn't derive massive cash flow". Members said paying debts was important and voted to convert the 5769 investment and pay outstanding debts. It was also decided to investigate holding a membership drive. Chamber members are also investigating the possibility of one of the major bus chains McCaffertys, Greyhound, Deluxe - to make Yeppoon a destination.

Police warning to under-age drinkers UNDER-AGE drinkers can expect police to be patrolling the Capricorn Coast in an effort to stop youths patronising licensed premises. Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer warned under 18s to stay out of licensed premises. "It is an area we are continually policing," he said. Sgt Tanzer said the under-aged would be placed in an embarrassing situation for bothoL. them and their parents. "I encourage Coast teenagers to stay out of these places and to support the supervised under 18 discos in the area. "The more you support these functions, the more organisers will hold them on a regular basis," he said.

Premier's wife for NP meeting QUEENSLAND Premier's wife, Andrea Ahern, will be guest speaker at the Capricorn

Coast branch of the Women's National Party next week. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said Mrs Ahern would be attending the women's section annual general meeting on Thursday, November 10. "Mrs Ahern is well known for her interest in caring for the sick and aged," he said. "In recognition of her work in this field a hospital

39 1999

- the Andrea Ahern Private Hospital - was named after her," he said. Mr Hinton said Mrs Ahern had accepted an invitation from the Capricorn Coast branch to speak at its meeting and attend a luncheon at the Lantern Restaurant. "Mrs Ahern is keen to lift the profile of women's organisations," he said. "The annual general meeting is open to members or intending members and closed to the public, but the luncheon is open to all men and women."

New signs to help traffic flow NEW traffic flow signs will be introduced in the centre of Emu Park to improve pedestrian and vehicular safety at the corner of Hill and Pattison Streets. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said an idea to install an roundabout was quashed but traffic flow signs were given the go ahead. The decision for traffic signs was the result of a meeting held on Monday night convened by the Emu Park Progress Association at Mr Hinton's request. "It was unanimously decided that a roundabout could create unnecessary traffic congestion and seriously affect businesses adjacent to the corner including the new Endeavour Inn Motel and shops on Pattison Street which would have reduced parking space," he said. "The meeting studied detailed plans provided by Rockhampton Main Roads Department district engineer Kevin Kerr which included plans costing between S50,000 and S110,000. Mr Kerr did not support a roundabout construction." Mr Hinton said cost wasn't the major consideration. "It is the risk to lives that is the critical issue as well as the well being of Emu Park businesses". "It was agreed at the meeting that give way smarts would be erected on the dog-leg corner r,

section of Pattison Street to give Hill Street traffic the right-of-way. "An adequate kerbing guide would be constructed at the bottom of Hill Street near the boat ramp to ensure the traffic returning up Hill Street does not enter the right hand land. "A no entry sign would be erected on the right hand lane of Pattison Street adjacent to Hill Street, so that traffic will not enter the wrong side of Pattison Street." Mr Hinton said the situation could be reviewed after the flow traffic signs were erected and if there was any difference after their installation. The meeting also supported Mr Hinton's suggestion that the Main Roads Department erect a tourist sign on Hill Street depicting the Singing Ship. Another suggestion was that a tourist loop in Emu Park via the Singing Ship and shopping arcade be depicted on the sign. Emu Park Progress Association president Warren Spreadborough said Monday's meeting had been well attended and proved interesting. Mr Spreadborough said Mr Kerr had presented all possible roundabout proposals anc showed it would only worsen the situation.

Frui holding Third Annual Tree Crops Field Day at Valley Vista THE third annual Yeppoon Fruitgrowers' and Local Producers' Association field day will be the ideal destination for farmers or the home gardener tomorrow (Saturday). Everything from small hand-held spray pumps to large sprayers will be displayed by the 17 participating companies. Demonstrations of horticultural needs is the specific aim of the field day. Coast tropical fruit farm, Valley Vista on Millview Road, Farnborough, is this year's field day host. Valley Vista is near Farnborough School and field day visitors will be guided by signs after the Capricorn Iwasaki Resort roundabout. Organisers said small farmers and home gardeners could use the field day as a forum to not only learn about the latest developments but also talk to the experienced company representatives. Some of the displays include fruit grading and industrial hire. Visitors will see static and working displays of the latest technology available in farming and gardening. Field day spokesman Bruce Sloper said Cropmaster's agricultural representative is David Vernon who holds a degree in agricultural science. "Mr Vernon offers consultancy to interested people." he said. "They can find out about setting up a farm or home garden." Mr Sloper said people could take tree cutting samples - or a leaf, or soil - along to the field day and advice could be given on how to solve any problems. "Anyone who has an interest in growing plants correctly will be guaranteed of gleaning some useful information from the many demonstrations," he said. Large equipment including tractors, cherry pickers, sprayers, 4WD and all-terrain vehicles will be displayed and everything from irrigation to fertilisation supplies will be on-site. Coast business AIS McCracken Sales Pty Ltd will have a range of pipes and fittings, pumps and irrigation supplies on display.

John ScoffinZa craftsman JOHN SCOFFIN works with his hands ... and is proud to say so because his hands produce work that is as old as civilisation ... jewellery. John, his wife Yvonne, and son Rowan make up the team at Scoffins, the jewellery store that opened recently in the Savemore Centre, Yeppoon. It's a jewellery store that will become as much a part of the Capricorn Coast as the beaches because, sooner or later, everyone will visit and spend some time there. Customers will see John Scoffin through the glass at the rear of the shop and will most likely meet Rowan or Yvonne in the front where the 'clocks, gifts and jewellery items are on sale. But the customer who admires a piece of jewellery but wishes it was "just a little bit different" will soon meet John. Working quietly with his hands and precision instruments John Scoffm can create that one item of jewellery that makes it more than something bought in a shop and turns it into something to be handed down through the family. The title "jeweller" is won after a long apprenticeship. It was a six-year period of study and practical work when John Scoffm undertook the course but has been reduced of late to a four-year course. Another title that could be used is "craftsman" but this term won't be appreciated until a piece of jewellery with that "something different" catches the eye. Although Christmas is just weeks away, there is still time to find out what a jeweller can do to make a gift something special. A customer might fancy a unique diamond ring; perhaps a jewelled money clip; maybe a bracelet of antique design? These items, and more, are available from Scoffins but don't expect to find two specialty items alike. The design of these specialty items are not on show because they're in your mind. You know what you want; you can see it ... now, all you need is to describe what you see to The Jeweller. Sit awhile. Talk over your design. Specify the colour you want, the shape, the sparkle you're looking for. If you have a rough sketch, bring it in and let John Scoffin look it over ... or he will sketch out his interpretation of your description. You'll w ant to know the price before he starts and that's no trouble. Perhaps you would like to see the precious stones that will put a sparkle in your eyes. Just ask ... everything you need is right on the premises. Come, back a day or two later and look at the finished product. Hold it, examine it under a bright light, get the feel of it. It's yours, and only yours because you designed it. Your thoughts, your desires have been translated by John Scoffin's skill into something that is unique.

IF the three most important words in real estate are "position, position, position, the three most important words in business must be "experience, experience and experience". John and Yvonne Scoffm, who have opened Scoffms in Savemore Centre, bring a solid background of both jewellery and business experience to the Capricorn Coast. They have been self-employed for the past 17 years and their new jewellery store is the fourth they have operated. John Scoffin, as well as being a jeweller (and a member of the Australian Jewellers' Association), is also a watchmaker and clockmaker. In all, he spent 10 years learning his skills. The watchmaker and clockmaker skills are no longer in constant demand with the introduction of new technology and "throwaway" watches but there will always be timepieces that need the repairs that only a skilled tradesman can provide. But the skills needed to become a fully qualified jeweller will always be in demand ... only a craftsman can create a unique item of jewellery. However skills in running a business are just as important. Without business skills there is no business. After 17 years, John and Yvonne Scoffm have proved they have these skills. They started with a small jewellery store in a side street of Geelong and expanded to another store in Ballarat. While this expansion was occurring Geelong was also expanding ... but in the opposite direction to their store's location. During a trip to the United States, John Scoffin noticed the latest trends in jewellery stores there and returned to Geelong fired up with enthusiasm. America was moving upmarket and, in line with that trend, the Scoffms opened a third jewellery store in Geelong ... an upmarket business in the newer section of the city. They picked that trend correctly, as they also picked the later trend toward a combination of both upmarket and downmarket in the same store. They sold their Ballarat bdsiness and combined both stores in Geelong to cater for all customers' tastes. Again they were right. Their Savemore jewellery store combines everything they have learned in their 17 years together in business. Scoffms offers a handcrafted opal ring for $5773 ... and a watch for around $5. There is a superbly displayed range of sterling silver charm bracelets ... and a huge range of costume jewellery. Scoffms looks like a jeweller), store, both outside and inside ... but it's not intimidating. The pastel colours on the walls and floors are

inviting with that touch of elegance befitting a store staffed by people who will design and create a family heirloom. The display stands show off their contents to their best advantage and the walls show a huge range of clocks and timepieces that make gift selection so easy. The Australian hand-painted glassware sparkles, the wide range of Casio watches beckon; the diamond pendants, bracelets and rings tempt the gift-giver. Situated at the entrance to the Savemore Supermarket, Scoffms combines the best of both real estate and business ... it has position, position, position and experience, experience and more experience!

Scoffin family leaves Geelong for Coast's lifestyle THE SCOFFIN family sold their home and business in Geelong to start a new lifestyle on the Capricorn Coast. They weren't plagued by any problems in Geelong such as the "big city" syndrome ... but the C apricom Coas t offered a lifestyle with blue skies and beaches. John Scoffin decided to make the move after a phone call from his parents in April this year. They had previously moved to Taranganba and John had visited them three times. During one of his visits he had looked at a

vacant shop in the Savemore centre and felt it was the ideal site for a jewellery store. In April, during a phone call with his father, John learned the shop was still vacant. What followed was one of those "where are we going" family discussions. John had already considered that "one day he would retire to the Capricorn Coast and open a small shop". There was no fixed idea about when that "retirement" would occur but it was an idea that was gathering appeal. The April phone call

brought lifestyle ideas into focus ... in the end, Yeppoon offered more than Geelong. By June this year the Scoffins had made the decision to move and leased their shop in Savemore. There was a lot involved in moving such as arranging for 10-year-old Nathan to attend Sacred Heart and finding a home ... and selling a home plus a thriving jewellery store in Geelong. They opened their new store last month and now have everything in its place. The jewellery stands are arranged, the wall clocks hung, the gifts and glassware have been dis-

played and John Scoffin's precision instruments have been unpacked and are already at work. But that's the work part of their life. The new lifestyle started as soon as they arrived ... the early morning walks on the beach paddling through the froth; the blazing sunsets, the lush vegetation; these add up to anew way of living, a lifestyleso different from life in the South. "We're going to be busy in the shop but we're going to make time to enjoy this area," John and Yvonne Scoffin said on Tuesday. "That's why we came he/ie."

Coast nursing Sister's bursary A CAPRICORN Coast nursing sister has won a bursary to Brisbane which will improve her knowledge of facilities and treatments available to cancer patients. Community Health Sister Judy Newman-Tyler applied, and won, a bursary offered by the Rockhampton Lions Club for two weeks in Brisbane. Mrs Newman-Tyler said the bursary would enable her to learn more about cancer treatment, accommodation and facilities and use that knowledge in the Capricorn Coast community. The competition was open to any nurse and includes accommodation and travel expenses. The Queensland Cancer Fund co-ordinates her trips to facilities in Brisbane. Mrs Newman-Tyler leaves on Sunday. She hopes the knowledge gained from the trip will benefit the community.

Principal promoted YEPPOON State Primary School principal Coral Deeth leaves on November 11 to take up a promotional position in Maryborough. Miss Deeth has been promoted to supervisor of studies, senior primary, a new position in the State Education Department. "One of the many roles includes assisting teachers with the implementation of curriculum," she said. "I have enjoyed my time in Yeppoon but look forward to the challenge of the new job." Miss Deeth was appointed principal to Yeppoon in 1980, nearly eight years later. It is the second time she has been transferred from Yeppoon State Primary School. "I was infants' principal at the Queen Street school in 1968," she said. "There were about three or four teachers and Yeppoon primary now has 35 teachers and 690 pupils." In the past eight years the school has undergone a number of changes. Miss Deeth said the special education unit, new oval and bus turnaround were built in that time and the school also celebrated its centenary in 1985.

Pool funds up with $600 gifts THE Emu Park Don Ireland Swimming Pool Complex committee funds were boosted by a $600 donation from Ron Hyslop and Gary Jones. Gary Jones handed the committee $500 from the Chas Jones family Esso Agency in Rockhampton. Ron Hyslop of Emu Park Esso Service Station donated a further $100. The funds will go toward stage one ... construction of the pool and fence. The pool, underground filtration piping and boundary fence cost $95,000. It is expected stage one will be completed by December, 1988. However, the opening will not enable the public to use the pool. Further funds are needed to fill the pool, build the amenities block and install the filtration plant. The pool committee said construction didn't include any Federal or State subsidies. Spokesman Yvonne Protheroe said the committee was ineligible and that was the reason for stages two and three's postponement until moneywas available. "We appeal to the public to support our fundraising efforts," Mrs Protheroe said. "The sooner money comes in the quicker the pool will be completed."

Council to carry out traffic study A TRAFFIC study to be conducted by Livingstone Shire Council will look at ways to allevi, ate problems with parking, bus stops, pedestrian crossings and major intersections. . Shire clerk Jim Brown said council would look at carrying out a traffic study after the current year's works plan was finalised. "The traffic study will look at any identifiable problems firstly in Yeppoon and then Emu Park," he said. "It was instigated by council after approaches by several organisations." Yeppoon Pensioners League approached council for a pedestrian crossing between Beaman Park and Woody's Convenience Store. "The Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry has also talked to council about pedestrian crossings and regulated parking," he said. "Council hopes to alleviate the problem of parking by regulating all-day parkers outside commercial premises." Bus stops and major intersections including those at Little Park and Braithwaite Streets, Rawlings Street and Tanby Road, Adelaide and Normanby Streets, the railway crossing and roads surrounding Savemore Centre would all be investigated. The study could also include future traffic flows on the four-lane road along Farnborough Road and Anzac Parade and ways to alleviate the problem. "Council knows there are problems and the idea of the traffic study is to investigate ways of solving and improving Coast roads."

MEALS on Wheels is a welcome sight to the many Capricorn Coast people they serve ... the sick, retarded, maimed and elderly - rain or shine - five days a week. A willing band of 70 volunteers, led by the formidable team of Joan and Frank Mortensen, work Monday to Friday to give 30 people healthy and nutritious meals. Mr and Mrs Mortensen have worked for the Coast Meals on Wheels for 16 years ... without a break. The service is completely staffed and operated by volunteers ... preparation, cooking, delivery, washing-up and organising. It is a job that not only extends to serving meals but also taking time out to talk and say hello to people who usually can't get out of their homes. A typical day for volunteers starts at 4.30am. Vegetables have to be peeled, cut and readied for cooking. Joan Mortensen filled in for Errol Ward last Thursday ... he usually helps with the vegetables. It was a quiet morning with only 12 people listed for Meals on Wheels. Mrs Mortensen said the Coast Meals on Wheels averaged between 25 and 30 meals a day. "The only complaint we've had about our meals is that they're too big," she said. "We're also unique in Australia because we also serve on public holidays. On Christmas Day Yeppoon Rotary Club takes over and either serves a meal or takes the people into their homes for a meal." Mrs Mortensen said most kitchens closed during public holidays but Capricorn Coast Meals on Wheels hadn't in its 16 years. Thursday's rostered cook was Vera Wilson who turned up about 7.30am. All the cooks have special ways of preparing their meals. Mrs Wilson is no exception ... she likes to leave her vegetables whole. It only takes her about 10 minutes to whip up the apple cake mixture and before long the aroma of cooking mingles with the friendly chattering of Mrs Mortensen and Mrs Wilson. The two areas of delivery in Yeppoon start at 10.30am. This is where the majority of volunteers are needed. Meals on Wheels always sends out people in pairs to deliver the meals ... a driver and helper. A normal run takes about an hour. The washing-up crew takes over at about 11.45am. The washed stainless steel containers are baked dry at 365 degrees for one-and-a-half hours to make sure they are germ free. Meals on Wheels is a non-profit organisation and survives on government subsidies, donations and bequests. Yeppoon's Rotary, Lions and bowls clubs as well as Yeppoon Charity Flea Market and many individuals contribute both financially and in kind. Donations of vegetables and sometimes eggs help reduce expenses. Mrs Mortensen said it cost about $2 per meal. Government subsidies totalled 85c (Federal government 60c and State 25c) and recipients pay $1.50. The

"We don't only serve old people also maimed, sick or retarded," he said. "We don't just deliver meals but also p letters, run messages and generally keep an on them." Mrs Mortensen said they report to Coma nity Health if a person isn't eating. Many Meals on Wheels organisations w from hospitals or lease the cooking to cater When the Coast branch was first formed m( were cooked by St Brendan's College staff The Mortensens' have been with the Cc organisation since its inception. Mortensen said meals then cost about 50c St Brendan's continued cooking for two-a a-half years before Meals on Wheels move( its present building in Arthur Street. Mrs Mortensen said Reg Brimstone clonal the building. "We don't have any rent or ov heads except insurance and any repairs," said. "Reg also has a written guarantee with Vincent de Paul, which operates at the froni Meals on Wheels, that we will never have leave this building. "Meals on Wheels is a community project so many people have helped over theyears. our equipment has been donated." There are 136 affiliated organisations Queensland. All together they deliver 1,503,000 meals last year ... an increase 200,000 from the previous year. This represented some organisations deliv ing under 10 meals a day to 300 meals deliver by others.

RECOGNISING a situation in advance and then knowing what to do is the defensive driving course's aim ... Capricorn Coast residents have a chance to attend the only course to be run on the Coast this year from Wednesday, November 9. The defensive driving course gives classroom instruction in safe driving techniques. Four two-hour sessions start on Wednesday, November 9 and continue on November 16, 23 and 29. Classes will be held in Yeppoon State High School library starting at 7.30pm. Transport Department officer Kim Martin said the courses were designed to teach people how to recognise a situation in advance. "Most accidents occur because people haven't recognised the situation until too late," he said. "We then show people what to do after early recognition. The course is aimed at motor vehicle drivers from 16 years and older. "It is not a learn-to-drive course but people who have been driving five minutes, five years or 50 years can learn from the course." Mr Martin said Queensland's road toll for last year at 442 was the lowest for 23 years but already the toll is 77 higher than at the same time last year. "It appears apathy and a false sense of security have led people to relax," he said. "It appears with two months to go to the end of 1988, the toll will be well over 500. "Road safety is up to the individual. Motorists cannot expect other drivers to keep them alive. This defensive driving course is the only postlicence driver education available in the state." The course covers such areas as driving in adverse conditions, cornering and overtaking. An integral part of the course is understanding traffic regulations. Mr Martin said the course had an added bonus ... defensive driving course graduates are eligible for reduced insurance premiums with some companies and participants are also eligible to receive the Queensland Road Safety Council's Defensive Driving Award. The course costs $20 and covers all materials including a handbook, and the use of audiovisual equipment. For further inquiries phone Mr Martin or Lester Cavanagh on 27 1900. Mr Martin said anyone interested in taking the course should turn-up on November 9 and enrol with the course organisers.

ABOVE: The Hose family of Kinka Beach helped theirfather, Brian, celebrate his birthday on Saturday at Kinka Lodge. Pictured (from left) is Leanne holdingEllen, Neville, Judy, Brian, Fiona and Greg. In the front is Michael and Scott. THERE are six nominations at Livingstone Shire Council for the 1989 Australia Day Awards sponsored by council through the Australia Day Council, Queensland and Shire residents have until November 25 to get them in. I have been told most of them are for the senior award. Now, there must be quite a few Livingstone Shire residents who qualify for the other sections ... get out your pens or typewriters and nominate someone. There have been some queries on how and what to put in the nominations and hopefully that means there will be more than there is at the moment. From the questions asked I hope the following will be of use to people who want to nominate someone they knowwho they think is eligible ... people who don't usually get praised publicly. People who work in the background helping the community and don't do it for praise, gain or ego trips. You must state on the nomination which section you think the person deserves to be in ... citizen, junior citizen, sportsman ( or person), junior sports etc, sporting team/coach. The choice is wide. The nomination must carry your name and address ... you have to sign it, anonymous nominations aren't good enough. Don't worry, the people nominated never find out who nominated them. If possible put the name, address, telephone number (if possible) and age (if known) on the nomination. You have to say what the person has done to deserve an Australia Day award ... especially what they have done in the past year. If their community work is on-going, that means never stops ... say so. It isn't hard to nominate people. You must send or take a letter, it doesn't have to be typed, to Livingstone Shire Council before November 25. In the letter, which doesn't have to be enormous, you must explain why you think the person you have nominated deserves an award. They must be working for the community without payment. You can nominate as many people as you wish, but they must be on separate pieces of paper. If you have nominated someone in the past and they didn't receive an award ... nominate them again. If you don't have enough information about the work your person has done ... sometimes that's okay, because the selection committee is made up of people from each Livingstone Shire division and they usually knowwhat the people have done and can advise the rest of the committee. Don't put it off, sit down now and put pen to paper and nominate someone you know who deserves the honour. If you don't knowwhat to say or how to say it, call in and see me, or phone 39 4244 ... I have the guidelines and am only too happy to help.

YEPPOON Country Women Association members' morning tea last Friday included sister-link member Dorothy Ebbatson from the Isle of Wight. Mrs Ebbatson popped into the Capricorn Coast, on her second visit to the area. The Isle of Wight, a small island off the English Coast, was home to Queen Victoria. Osborne House is still used as a convalescent home by the Royal House as well as servicemen. Mrs Ebbatson is a retired head teacher. She said the Isle of Wight was steeped in history and was a great place to visit. Mrs Ebbatson is a member of Australia's CWA equivalent in the United Kingdom, the Women's Institute. Mrs Ebbatson joined her present group at Whippingham when she retired five years ago. "Yeppoon became a sister-link after president Penny Stephens wrote to our monthly magazine asking for it to be sent to Australia," she said. "I wrote to our head office and asked to send out a magazine, they said yes, and correspondence has since continued. "I came out three years ago and visited Yeppoon. I am now on a round-the-world trip and just finished visiting a niece in Perth." Mrs Ebbatson arrived two weeks ago and planned to leave yesterday (Thursday). She joined Coast CWA women for morning tea and a chat about her trekking. ***

UNICEF Christmas cards, stationery and mugs are available from the Capricorn Coast Justice and Peace group at the Flea Market in Yeppoon Showground on Saturdays and also from Denise Christensen, 39 2155. ***

ZILZIE GOLF ZILZIE Golf Club held an Ambrose on Thursday and the winners of the event were B Sleeman, C O'Mara and D Lawn with 59 and' one third nett. "A big thank you to all members and associates who attended the working bee on Saturday, October 29," the club's publicity officer said. "They worked through from 5am. Plenty of good fellowship and community spirit shown here, a great effort by our members and an even greater one next day when handicapped by sunburn, blisters and a slow recovery from the Sportsman's Dinner they suffered a crushing defeat in the play of the Roy Nixon shield at Yeppoon." Best players for Zilzie were G Brimmell and. G Hicks. J Webb won the pinshot. "Congratulations Yeppoon on your good scores and thank you for a lovely day." Stableford will be played tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday a monthly medal and stableford. Medal final for associates and members and associates monthly meeting will be on the same day.

EXPO BENEFITS • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 people have decided to extend their holidays north." Mary Cummins from the Endeavour Inn handles the bookings for the motel. She said no-one specifically had come to holiday on the Coast as a result of something they saw at Expo. "The people have planned holidays to include travelling north along the Coast which involved stops at Expo and the Capricorn Coast on their way," she said. Allamanda Court's Hubert Murray said the breakdown of traditional holiday destinations including Gold and Sunshine Coasts had caused a migration of holidaymakers to. the Capricorn Coast. However, Mr Murray said people weren't staying at the Coast because of something they saw at Expo. "A lot of Southerners have extended their holidays to visit Cairns," he said. "After travelling a full day they reach the Coast and decide to stay here for their holiday instead of going further." A full list of Expo volunteers and donors will be printed in next week's Capricorn Coast Mirror.

A GROUP from St Matthew's Estate, Rockhampton was treated to lunch by the Emu Park CWA on Wednesday, October 26. The group went to Ross' Run before lunch. Dorothy Ebbatson from the Isle of Wight was the branch's guest speaker. *** AN address given by Forum president Jan Edwards at the bi-annual general meeting last week was on advancement instead of retreat ... steadfastly defending ideals and speakers' rights without fear of intimidation or censure. Secretary Janice Froschauer and treasurer Janine Cossar gave comprehensive reports and have been of valued and helpful support with additional help from members. Council club delegate Billie Sinclair and Leo Carpenter reported on Forum matters. The six-monthly critique compiled by club critic Eunice Cowdray was detailed and accurate. The following members were elected unopposed for the 1989 session: president Barbara Wildin; vice president Joan Whyte; secretary Sharon Croese; treasurer Cheryl Whellan; critic Eunice Cowdray. Committee members: Janice Froschauer, Leo Carpenter and Anne Owens. All office bearers and committee members are nominated for six months. This system allows members to have a chance at an executive or committee position during the year. Meetings are held fortnightly in the evening so busy women can enjoy out-of the-home or work activities. Forum doesn't fund raise ... it brings together women who want to learn meeting procedure, public speaking and what to 'do' when they hold executive office. The main speaker for the Wednesday, November 9 meeting is Shirley Edwards who will speak about an alternative lifestyle. If you would like to be a guest, phone Jan, 39 2130 before November 8 or Janine, 39 3209. Joan Whyte and Anne Owens are the night's hostesses. Arrangements are underway for the Christmas meeting on November 23. Meetings are every second Wednesday, except school holidays, at 7.30pm at the Uniting Church hall, Arthur Street, Yeppoon. *** MONTHLY meeting for the Arts Society is on November 16 at 7.30pm in the Paint Pot Gallery.

Brett Odell started well taking the first game from Anthony Trump but faded as he lost direction and Anthony played his hand to advantage to win in four ... he held all the trumps. Larry Owens also started well to take the first game from Glen Ward but Glen applied pressure to win in four. Peder Dale, playing as number four reserve for Professionals, continues to perform ... this week defeating Leon Malone in five. Carl Hudson, as number two reserve for Professionals, impressed with a win in five against Ray Campbell. Secret Weapons defeated Navigators 3-1: Anthony Trump d Brett Odell 3-1; Mark Sargood v Len Keily 2-3; Glen Ward d Larry Owens 3-1; reserve Tony Smith d Gordon Roberts 3-0.

Beach-to-St Brendan's triathlon for students ST BRENDAN'S College Beach to Brendan's Triathlon would be held on Sunday, November 6 and is only open to secondary school students. Organisers of the annual event said older athletes were catered to by a number of marathons and events in the district and this year's triathlon would be open to all secondary school students. The triathlon starts at Yeppoon Surf Life Saving Club at 8am. Competitors are asked to be at the club by 7.45am to register. Nomination forms will also be available from the college.

The triathlon comprises a 800m swim followed by a 20km bike ride to Capricorn Iwasaki Resort and back, and finishing with about an 8km run to St Brendan's College. Sponsorship totals more than 5400 ensuring winners will be well rewarded for their efforts. Rockhampton's Graham and Bartley's is the largest donor with more than 5200 in sporting goods. There are eight categories for individual and team events. Awards will be presented to the best individual boys and girls 18 years and under runner, best individual boys and girls 15

years and under, and prizes to the winning teams in the same categories. Every athlete who enters the triathlon will be entered in a draw for a weekend for two at Whitsunday Terraces. College sportsmaster Paul Bunn said last year the event had attracted 82 teams. The school hopes to surpass this with entries from the district's high schools. Mr Bunn said already feedback had shown teams from Gladstone and Yeppoon would be competing with other Central Queensland Schools also nominating.

Me bait tik the iftivist MELBOURNE CUP excitement ...

Gravel, sand and then tuif will provide the club with a new 30m by 10m pitch. Work is expected to take about three weeks and the club hopes it will be ready for next season's play.

Pace attack puts Coast ahead THE pace attack of Wayne Kitchener and Ken Ogilvie has yet again put the Capricorn Coast second grade cricketers in a favourable position against Grammar in the current game. Coast won the toss and sent Grammar into bat and they were all out for 60 runs. Kitchener captured six wickets for 46 from 12.2 overs and

INDOOR nein Cricket and CRICKET Netball It's a hit with my mates

Ogilvie took four for 13 from 12. The fine spell of bowling from these two players was backed up by some equally good fielding. This was particularly evident in the slips cordon where three catches went to hand and one being gloved neatly by the keeper. Coast adopted a sensible approach to the batting and slowly made its way to 89 with the loss of four wickets. Jason Dawes survived a couple of drop catches to see him unbeaten on 27 while Peter Huxtable and Jeff Ingle both made 15. The nightmare continues for the luckless third graders who have been forced to followon again. Playing against Frenchville, Coast won the toss and sent Frenchville into bat. Theywere all out for 238. Steve Christie took five for 74 from 14 overs, Brad West took three for 72 from nine and Les Clarke took two for 54 from eight. Coast was handicapped from the start when a couple of players failed to show and was dismissed for 79 runs. Don Letchford topscored with 39 while Ken Dunning was unbeaten on 17. Coast will start its second innngs with the bat when play resumes tomorrow (Saturday) at 12.45pm. The club will have a barbecue on Saturday evening after the matches are finished at at the back of the Railway Hotel and all members are invited to attend.

MORE golfing trivia ... it seems when golf was first played in Scotland, courses, or links, were of varying length. The present 18-hole courses did not exist'... there could be more holes or less. Apparently the one constant was that players used to carry a flask of scotch to ward off the chills. The players used to have a hit and a sip, a chip and a sip, a putt and a sip ... and after 18 holes the flasks were empty, necessitating a trip to the "19th" for a refill. That's how courses standardised on 18 holes. Any golfers wishing to correct or debate this item of trivia are invited to write a letter to the editor ... could be an interesting topic! •

PEOPLE angry about others protesting at "nuclear-capable" warships entering Australian harbours often cry out "Go to Russia and try that" ... and probably wind up starting a brawl. If any of these protestors should ever take this often-shouted free advice they would feel quite at home ... a packet of Black and Gold matches available in Yeppoon have "Product of USSR" on the label. It's good to see the woodchip industry is alive and well in Russia!! •

INNOCENT young fella, living alone for the first time in his life, gave his neighbours a jolt when meeting them for the first time. He casually remarked that he grew "grass" for extra pocket money! Turns out he does grow grass ... but it's the type that grows in fish tanks and apparently is quite saleable. His mother, hearing his version of what he told the neighbours waited her chance and quietly explained f his hobby wasn't quite as lucrative as they may have thought! ••IMBMW

RIGHT, now we've got rid of the Melbourne Cup so can get on to golf. Did you notice the Great White Shark Greg Norman was the Great White Shark once again in the NSW Open because he was playing without a hat? You didn't ... well, read on. The only reason his hat comes to mind is that Greg Norman is such a white-haired boy when he's hatless. Watching him play in the Open reminded me that he had (and "had" may well be the operative word) a sponsor who required him to wear a hat. Reminds me of the story about the great Arnold Palmer when he was storming the world's tournaments. He had a cigarette sponsor. For something like $10,000 (in the money of the day, probably a million today) he had to walk up to each tee, pull out the sponsor's cigarettes, pull out a fag, light it, take a drag, throw it on the ground, drive the ball, walk back, pick up the cigarette, take a drag, then walk off the tee. The same procedure applied at each green. He lit up, took a drag, dropped the cigarette on the edge of the green, putted the ball, walked back, picked up the cigarette, took a drag then walked on to the next hole. Needless to say, smoking became a habit. He was smoking a minimum of 36 cigarettes on an 18-hole round. When he decided to give up smoking he not only had to break the habit of lighting up, dragging, throwing, driving, picking up, dragging and walking he also had to give up $10,000 a year. His story was one of those gems told in the Reader's Digest years ago and came to mind when Greg Norman's flashing white hair appeared on the Boob tube. The hatless Norman won $36,000 for winning. Be interesting to see if he puts that hat back on!
