Beach erosion works win both praise and criticism LIVINGSTONE Shire Council actions this week to beat erosion at Kinka Beach brought a swift complaint when spinifex grass was removed from the primary dune at Bangalee Beach. Three residents sprang into action when council workmen were seen removing spinifex from glee. Morag Clay rang the Capricorn Coast NittYbr, Valda Reynolds phoned Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland Capricorn branch president Pat O'Brien and Sally Matta spoke to • the workmen then kept watch. The workmen, apparently acting under instruetions from the Beach Protection Authority via the 1 - council's engineering department, removed spinifex from Bangalee (to the left of the ramp onto the beach) and re-planted it at Kinka Beach on the new sand groyne created earlier this year by the Main Roads Department. Pat O'Brien commended their efforts at Kinka Beach ... but criticised their removal of spinifex from Bangalee.

"There can't be any complaints about the Kinka Beach work because they're helping nature to knit together work started by machines," he said. "But their actions at Bangalee have created exactly the same problem they're trying to stop at Kinka Beach." Shire chairman Cr John Bowen told the Mirror he was aware of what workmen were doing and said he had been to the area early Tuesday morning to check damage. He said he did not think any damage been had done and gave an assurance that workmen would not be removing any more spinifex from the area immediately in front of the three residents' homes. But Mr O'Brien, who inspected the affected area on Tuesday afternoon, said the damage that had been done would take 12 months to repair. He said it was unfortunate that workmen had chosen to remove the spinifex in patches, baring small areas of the primary dune, rather than selecting individual runners then moving to another area. "By baring patches, they have left the primary dune without protection against wind erosion," Mr O'Brien said. "Wind whipping along Farnborough Beach can turn these bare patches into holes and make them bigger and bigger. "Where patches are exposed to wind along their length they can be turned into long strips of bare sand which offer no protection against encroaching sea." Sally Matta, who showed the bared patches to Mr O'Brien on Tuesday afternoon, was extremely annoyed with council's actions. "Even if no permanent damage has been done there's a principle involved," she said. "What gives the council the right to decide it can destroy one dune area that is protecting a beach and houses, to save another dune area that will do the same job?" , Mr O'Brien considered the damage had been done more by thoughtlessness than any other reason. "The ideal situation would be for the Beach Protection Authority to have an area set aside for taking dune grasses in the same way a golf course has a spare green available and maintained so that

"Unfortunately, the B PA, and the council, have no such area set aside so they apparently take grasses from existing dunes that are already battling to survive. "The problem this week occurred because the workmen removed a lot of grass from a small area, resulting in bare patches.

La Bamba nightclub wins OK for extended trading hours LA BAMBA nightclub will now be able to operate until 5am six days a week and trade to midnight on Sunday. The Licensing Commission approved the application last week. Macedory Pty Ltd spokesman Ray Hutchings said the new hours were to start that night. Mr Hutchings said the company had applied for the new hours because people now looked for longer hours and that sort of entertainment. La Bamba did have a license to trade until 3am. When it applied to council for approval, a number of reasons were given for wanting the extension. • Mr Hutchings, in a letter' to council, said Yeppoon was a growing tourist area. "A need exists for such service, particularly in holiday seasons," he said.
"All Rockhampton night clubs trade until 5am. We feel disadvanted because many locals travel to Rockhampton to take advantage of the extra time. "We are now buying a courtesy bus to provide free transport for our patrons, and will offer a free service from Rockhampton." Mr Hutchings said La Bamba was a facility unequalled in the State and should be entitled to the same trading advantages as its counterparts. Town planner Scott Stewart said council could support La Bamba's application if "present operations have not given rise for concern". Council gave its approval and Macedory sent an application to the Licensing Commission, which also approved the extension.

IT was obvious the Federal Government did not want action on the proposal to build an international airport at Yeppoon, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week. Federal, State and Local Government had been asked on September 9 to provide guidelines for an Environmental Assessment Study, he said. These had been provided by the State Government and Livingstone Shire Council by October 13. "The only response from the Prime Minister's office after nine weeks is to advise that the project would involve action under the Environmental Protection Act," Mr Hinton said. He said it was obvious the Federal Government did not want action on the proposal for Yeppoon. "I point out that at this stage the company has not put forward a proposition but has only asked for guidelines. Where are they?" he said. It was a commercial decision for the company whether an application to build an airport was lodged. "It is not appropriate for the Federal Government to frustrate this move by not providing guidelines which, to date, is most certainly the case."

A CAPRICORN Coast grade four Yeppoon State Primary School pupil has won a limerick competition. Michael Whelan, nine-years-old, won his section in a competition run by the Central Queensland Consumers' Association. Member for Capricornia Keith Wright said the competition was unique to the area. The competition had been open to all grade four to seven primary school students in Central Queensland. Mr Wright presented Michael with his $25 prize and the school with a $25 open book order at the Queensland Book Depot. "Almost 500 students in the region entered the competition," he said. "Schools from the Livingstone Shire area included Yeppoon State Primary, Sacred Heart and Nerimbera. "The competition is the first of its kind and was designed to get people thinking about consumerism. Most of the limericks were warning people to be careful when they buy goods." Mr Wright said it was a "unique and fun way" for consumers to beco,me aware of the marketplace. "Next year we hope to increase the competition categories," he said. "There were four top prizes this year ... one went to Yeppoon and the three others to Rockhampton students. The response from schools was great and next year we hope to offer bigger prizes."

Police warn of big crackdown on failure to wear seat-belts
YEPPOON Police will be cracking down on people not wearing seat belts this month. Officer-in-charge Sgt 1/c Graham Klupfel said police would be emphasising the importance of seatbelts and child restraints during November. Sgt Klupfel said police focused on a different safety area each month in an effort to reduce the road toll. "This month's priority will be seat belts and child restraints," he said. "It doesn't mean the police will solely concentrate on enforcing this area. It means a greater emphasis will be put on seat belts and child restraints." Acting Police Commissioner Ron J Redmond said in a circular to police that 44 people had died on roads in Queensland so far this month. The road toll to the end of September, for the year, is 392. This is an increase of 64 on last year's") per cent) and an average increase of past four years (nine per cent). The 33 police expect fatalities will exceed 520 for 1988, making this year's toll the highest in six years. A breakdown of fatalities shows that of the 392, 161 were drivers, 120 passengers, 38 motor-cyclists, 17 cyclists and 56 pedestrians. The age group recording the most fatalities was the 17-20 years group with 61 fatalities closely followed by the 60-79 years bracket with 60 deaths. Number of fatalities in other age groups: 0-4 years, 8; 5-11 years, 21; 12-16, 23; 21-24, 50; 2529, 37; 30-39, 56; 40-59, 57 and over 80 years, 19. A report prepared by the Police Traffic Branch said while alcohol involvement in single-vehicle crashes had increased in 1988, alcohol involvement in crashes generally had decreased in past months. Expo and Bicentennial activites in south-east Queensland have been blamed for the higher number of fatalities in the Brisbane area and on the Bruce Highway. The report showed Queensland had the largest number of increases in fatalities of any of the States and territories in Australia.

Bicycle rider fatalities have nearly doubled in 1988 and teenagers andyoung adults are shown to be the most common group not using seat belts. Facts show 70 per cent of children and 50 per cent of adults killed in road accidents were not wearing a seat belt or restraint. "Seat belts when used correctly will reduce serious injuries and fatalities by up to 50 per cent. Children, properly restrained have a 70 per cent greater chance of surviving an accident. Statistics also show that unrestrained rear seat passengers cause about six per cent of front seat fatalities," Sgt Klupfel said. "Short trips are potentially the most dangerous because people drive locally more than they drive long distances. The chances of being involved in a collision close to home are greater." Motorists were advised to make sure seat belts were done up so both lap and sash sections hold firmly; ensure the lap section of belt was across the hips and not the abdomen; make sure the belt's flat and untwisted and keep the buckle by the side and not across the body. The Traffic Department said there were 10 popular myths about seat belts. * Myth one: It is not necessary to wear a seat belt if you sit in the back seat. Crash studies show it is just as important to wear a seat belt in the rear seat as it is in the front. Risk of injury is about the same. * Myth two: The only danger in a crash comes from outside the vehicle. In any road crash there are really two collisions ... the first involving the car and the second the human collision. This happens when an unrestrained occupant hits some part of the vehicle's interior. * Myth three: A child is safe if nursed carefully on an adult's lap. A baby nursed by an adult in the front passenger seat may be crushed against the dashboard by an unrestrained adult, even in a low-speed crash. Even if the adult is wearing a seat belt they cannot safely hold the baby. A baby enclosed in the same seat belt as an adult is unlikely to survive either because the adult's weight against the baby and seat belt reaches several tonnes immediately after impact. * Myth four: It is unsafe for a pregnant woman to wear a seat belt. The medical profession supports the use of seat belts by pregnant women. In a crash the most frequent cause of • CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

CAPRICORN Coast guide Kristine Banks has received the Baden-Powell award ... guiding's highest honour. Fifteen-year-old Kristine has been working toward the award for the past four-and-a-half years. She has had to work her way through a programme covering eight different aspects of guiding involving many hours' work and effort. Kristine is a member of the First Yeppoon Guides. Keppel Coast District Commissioner of Girl Guides Coleen Bignell presented the award during a ceremony watched by Kristine's parents Sue and Darryl, sisters Joelene and Carolyn, grandmother and relatives from Rockhampton. Unit leader Viv Cole said Kristine started working toward the Baden-Powell award when she was with the Moranbah guide group. Kristine, who has lived on the Coast for the past four years, continued working her way through the specified badges. The programme covered such areas as Law and Promise. Kristine had go camping and discuss guiding laws. Her second set of badges involved Exploring the Arts. She worked for a collectors and hobby badge. Keeping Fit was the third section of the programme. To complete this Kristine obtained her swimmers, cyclist and bosun badges. Becoming a Homemaker and earning a homemakers, bostess and petkeeper badges were Kristine's fourth task. Moving Out of Doors and working for a
Houses to move LIVINGSTONE Shire Council approved two house relocations this month. The applications involved shifting one house from North Rockhampton to land at Bondoola, and a house relocation from Lammermoor Beach to Tanby Road. Tony Schick applied to shift a house from Eddington Street, North Rockhampton, to his Bondoola property. He said it was an urgent request because the house had to be off the site within 31 days. Building inspector Ken Hodby reported to council the house was about 40 years old and in good condition. Austin Dobson applied to relocate a house from Ray Street, Lammermoor Beach, to his land at the southern end of Tanby Road. He said the house on his land had not been used as a residence for some years and would be used for storage purposes. Mr Hodby said the house at Lammermoor had been built between 1965 and 1970. "One section at the house's rear does not conform to the Building Act and would have to be fixed if relocated," he said. Both applications were approved.
patrol camp permit involved organising a group of five girls during a weekend camp including buying their food and working out entertainment and activities. Getting on with People involved a Golden Trefoil badge. Kristine learnt about Lady Baden-Powell and took part in a ranger activity in Brisbane for this badge. The seventh area fostered Thinking for Yourself. Kristine worked toward her philatelist and travellers badges in this section. Kristine's final section involved Service. She had to work in the community for 24 hours and also did work as a child nurse. Mrs Cole said girls who earned their BadenPowell Award spent a lot of time working toward this goal. Kristine was only the sixth Coast girl to win the award and the first in two years. She now has a choice to either become a ranger guide of junior leader.
Liquor decision MEMBER for Broadsound Denis Hinton has welcomed Premier Mike Ahem's announcement that liquor sales will not be made available through corner stores and supermarkets. Mr Hinton said he had moved such a motion in the National Party party room this week and it had been accepted by resolution. He had voiced his opposition because of concerns expressed to him by hoteliers whose businesses employ many people and were facing declining sales. He addressed a businessmen's luncheor,_,La Bamba last week and heard Coast hoteliers express their concerns at the meeting.

Premier's wife attends Coast NP women's section meet THE Women's section of the Yeppoon Branch of the National Party held its annual general meeting and luncheon at the Lantern Restaurant last week. Premier Mike Ahern's wife Andrea Ahern was guest speaker. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton's wife Ros attended as well as the Women's chairman of the State National Party Mindy Campbell. Publicity officer Effie Young said Mrs Campbell spoke on the need for National Party women to set examples in the community. "She said they should set the example by not indulging in idle gossip or character assassinations," Mrs Young said. "They should support the local and State community in positive ways. She expressed the urgency for women, in particular those between 50 and 69, to be examined for cervical cancer and to have mammograms made at either of the new units in Rockhampton." Mrs Young said Mrs Ahern spoke on the importance of women's roles in the family, community and National Party. "She said a loving, caring, sharing, cohesive 'ily was essential for encouraging young to live clean, Christian, productive lives," Mrs Young said. The new executive: chairman, Jackie Hole; secretary, Elma Cresta; treasurer, Ismay Wells; vice-presidents, Estelle Hartwig, Stella Riley and Joan Duffy; publicity officer, Effie Young; committee, Elaine Solly, May Baglow, Catherine Grayson and Joy Walsh.

CCTO has 24 to staff new centre THE CCTO's tourist information centre will be opened on December 16 by Tourism Minister Geoff Muntz. CCTO president Brian Hooper said on Monday the builders were ready to put on the roof. He expected the centre to be finished in time for the opening. Mr Hooper said the CCTO was now at a stage where it knew how it would finance the information centre and how areaswould be divided. "Volunteers will man the centre, which will be open every day between 8am and 5.30pm," he said. "Already 24 people have offered their time. "Twenty people have become guarantors to borrow the $76,000 needed to build the centre. About 520,000 of this has been guaranteed by non-members. "Non-members have also donated materials and helped with the expenses. It is encouraging to see Coast people help in this way." Mr Hooper said as a result of donations, construction costs had been reduced to $62,500. "Livingstone Shire Council said it
would also donate S10,000 if the centre could operate successfully," he said. "This will reduce the cost to 552,500. Our repayment costs will be $800 monthly and operation costs about 5750 each month making our yearly commitment S18,000. "We propose to meet these payments through boat ticket commissions, accommodation referrals, leasing, sale of drinks and locally-produced artefacts on consignment basis only." Mr Hooper said the CCTO would lease out display space (about a square metre) at S150 for six months. This would be separate to the free space available to every Coast business. "Businesses will be able to display a picture as well as brochures," he said. "Community groups and organisations will be invited to put up displays on a rotational basis to give visitors a chance to see what hobbies and activities are available. One-third of the space in the centre will be for free displays." Mr Hooper said other information centres including Rockhampton, Mackay, Gladstone and Central Highlands would be invited to display information.

EMU Park Pensioner League's October social was terrific. It followed a successful cent sale in the morning, attended by many Rockhampton and local people. The league thanks everyone who gave donations to the cent sale. Your support is appreciated. The social was a bicentennial tribute and the atmosphere was set with gum leaves, koalas, kangaroos and colourful leaves adorning the " Cultural Hall stage. Buses brought visitors from Rockhampton, and Yeppoon and the hall was packed. The Evergreens opened with My Country, Never Never, Old Sundowner and Big Blue Billabongs. Joe McIntyre was a great addition as the "Sundowner" with his swag and billy and corks bobbing around his hat. Alec Bacon, Emu Park's baritone, sang "Because you're you". Pearl Curry sang and tap danced "As the world goes by" ... Pearl is always a hit when she appears. Mrs Hall, the dear lady from Yeppoon, sang "Home on the range", followed by Tony Ceff who had the saxaphone singing with "Autumn Leaves" and "Sweet Mystery of life". The Evergreen girls, Pearl, Mary, Carole and Peg sang "Some Sunday Morning" and "Side by Side". Joe McIntyre did one of his famous recitations, then Doreen Svendsen sang two numbers.

Nationals told of park plans THE Yeppoon Branch of the National Party was told last Friday night the second stage of Byfield National Park could be achieved by the end of 1989, when RZ mines will be applying for a mining lease. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said he had had discussions with senior company officials last week in Brisbane. "He said it now appears that the deposits of rutile zircon, illemite and iron have been sufficiently tested by exploratory drilling to ensure a viable deposit of about S6 billion of mineral in the ground," branch chairman Jack Williams said. The company over the next 12 months will be concentrating on development aspects of its processing procedures and securing contracts for the sale of product. "Mr Hinton said company officials had told him they would expect to apply to convert authority to prospect areas to a defined mining lease at the end of 1989." This would clear the way for the State Government to declare the second stage of Byfield National Park once the boundaries of the mining lease were determined. At this stage it would be impossible to determine what area of additional park would be involved. Mr Hinton was supported at the meeting for his successful move to restrict liquor sales in Queensland to hotels and not to allow liquor sales in supermarkets and corner stores. Current legislation before State Parliament was discussed including the new prisons act involving the establishment of a Queensland Prisons Commission and the trial of a private enterprise prison at Borallan, near Ipswich. The public accounts committee legislation was also discussed with the legislating to substantially improve public accountability being strongly supported by the branch. Local issues including conservation of the Capricorn Coast fishery, Capricorn Coast tourist industry funding and road construction in the area were canvassed.

Doctor gives advice on snakes Hinton pushing and stingers - stay with victims for three homes A CAPRICORN Coast doctor said this week k:the most important thing people should reI member when dealing with snake or sting victims was to stay with them. "Under no circumstances leave them," he said. "It could be the difference between life and death." The doctor advised people on what actions should be taken now that the Capricorn Coast was entering the season when snakes and sea stingers were around. The doctor said when dealing with stingers there were two options to take ... this depends on the severity and type of sting. "People often get stung by the troublesome blue bottle or blue blubber while swimming. This stinger isn't as harmful as the Box-jelly fish," he said. "There are a number of actions a person should take. Firstly get out of the water, warn others there are jelly fish in the area, and apply ice. "If the stings are painful, a person should get medical or first-aid help. However jelly fish are generally not large or lethal." A Box-jelly fish was more dangerous because of its long tentacles. The doctor said the Boxjelly was the Capricorn Coast's only major marine-stinger. "Box-jelly's cannot be seen in the water and generally a person stung will have an immediate painful reaction," he said. "A jelly fish sting takes a little time to take effect but Box-jelly fish react immediately. Running and thrashing around only aggravate a sting and a person should be restrained and kept quiet until help arrives." The doctor said running and thrashing prompted stinging barbs to continue ejecting venom into the system. He advised to keep a sting victim quiet and continually assess that their air passage was clear, breathing was normal, and cardio (pulse) was constant. "Never leave a patient alone, especially with Box-jelly fish stings because a heart can stop in the time it takes to get help," he said. "Call for someone to get medical or first-aid assistance and vinegar (which has four to six per cent acetic acid) to douse the sting. "Pour vinegar all over the affected area for at least 30 seconds without disturbing any clinging tentacles. Vinegar isn't an antidote but stops any more venom being fired into the victim." The doctor said the "don'ts" with sting victims were: don't pull off tentacles; don't rub sand into the sting because it only causes more barbs to sting; don't use methylated spirits or alcohol to douse the sting and don't leave a patient alone. "In some cases where the sting is major, a compression bandage should be firmly applied to the affected limb," he said. "A compression bandage should be applied to immobilise the limb so it's tight but not painful." The person should then be taken to hospital as quickly as possible. The Coast's stinger season generally runs from November to March but reports of Box-jelly fish being captured by fisherman have come in after this time. The doctor said it was much the same for snakes. "Although they're around all the time they are more active in the summer months," he said. "The same steps apply. Remove the person to safety; assure the victim is quiet and still; immobilise the limb with a splint and compression bandage (do not apply a tourniquet); be aware of the airway, breathing and pulse and find help as soon as possible." The best way to avoid stinging was wear protective gear while swimming. The doctor said most lifesavers now wore full-length lycra swimsuits. "It is also suggested that on a warm day with light, gentle, north-easterly breezes, jelly fish will be around," he said. "However, it doesn't mean stingers won't be around when there is a southerly breeze.
rnembrance Day... and other conflicts - attended. Service clubs, Yeppoon Lions, Yeppoon Lionesses, youth groups, wives, Yeppoon State High School students and individuals attended the service. St Ursula's College student Jenny Stephensen sounded the Last Post and Reveille. Wreaths were laid by Bill Freeman and Bill Collins representing the RSL and Vietnam Legion. RSL president Stan Kent opened the service, Father John Cornish gave the prayer and Livingstone Shire Council chairman Cr John Bowen the address.

"Snakes generally get out of a person's way and it is only when someone accidently steps on or startles the snake they are bitten." He said the Capricorn Coast area has some of Australia's most poisonous snakes, including the Taipan, Brown and Death Adder snakes. He advised people to be careful when moving rocks, logs or walking into tall scrub. Check first to see if a snake may be there. In both sting and snake bite cases it helps if people keep a track of the patient's time of sting or bite; any detoriation; when vinegar or bandage was applied; and any other information that may help medical officers.
THE provision of three homes on the Capricorn Coast (two in Yeppoon and one at Emu Park) under the housing accommodation assistance scheme initiated by the Family Services and Welfare Housing Minister is being pushed for by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. Mr Hinton has supported an application by Livingstone Shire Council for the houses, which would be used to house families in emergency situations ... probably referred by St Vincent De Paul. "Council has applied for the three homes under the new $2.5m programme designed to boost affordable accommodation for the elderly and handicapped. The scheme provides local authorities, non-profit and community groups and organisations with capital assistance up to 90 percent for provision of rental accommodation and related service facilities," Mr Hinton said.

Shire industry has support THERE was community support for industry, a survey realease this week shows. The results of an analysis toward industrial development in the Rockhampton City and Livingstone Shire areas were released this week by Dames and Moore. Dames and Moore commissioned the survey to find out the attitudes of people to a range of industrial development issues. Surveyed were business people, special interest groups including chambers of commerce, and individuals. These people were asked questions relating to industry. Capricornia Institute School of Business Capstats Consutling Group's Ken Dooley and Liam Ryan conducted the study. It aimed to discover the range of potential industrial development in the area; work out the cost and benefits associated with this range of development; the area's present economical state and its future developmental potential; outside investment in development projects within the region; the involvement of outsidecontrolled environmentalist groups in development decisions that have an impact on the area's development, and industrial projects compared with tourism development projects. The survey's major result showed that people supported industry and had no objection to industrial projects. Dames and Moore's director Warren Atkinson said the study's results would provide regional background information for potential investors. "In addition, the information gathered provides a starting point for community consultation programmes associated with specific proposals," he said. "This then provides a means by which potential developers and the community.can establish effective communication in a way that ensures local developments are planned and implemented in a manner compatible with the community's objectives and values." Results will be distributed to Livingstone Shire Council and Rockhampton City Council as well as potential industrial developers. People interested in the survey's results should contact Mr Ryan or Mr Dooley at the Capricornia Institute on 36 0559 or 39 3443.

Erosion concern It's Den hams' company policy to Seat-belt safety • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 roaring around in dune buggies, four-wheeldrives and motorcycles on dunes, the loss of a truckload of spinifex may not seem a matter worthy of concern. But for the three residents, whose houses are protected by the grass, and for Mr O'Brien, a committed conservationist, the removal of any dune grass is considered a monumental blunder. Mr O'Brien, when talking to Mrs Matta on Tuesday, handled the spinifex gently and explained it was the "first line of defence" against erosion. Spinifex sends outrunners up to six metres long which stabilise the dune," he said. "They're the first line because when waves wash away the face of the dune, these runners hang over the water and are blown back onto the dune face where they, quickly re-establish themselves to offer a measure of protection against wind erosion." The second line of defence was a vine called Ipomoea (Goats-foot convolvulus) which runs along the dune sending down roots at regular intervals. The third line of defence is a plant called pigface, a small plant with flowers which spreads to provide even more cover against wind erosion. Following lines of defence involve natural grasses. Mr O'Brien said council, while at fault for removing spinifex in patches, rather than selectively, could hardly be blamed. "Perhaps it's expecting too much to expect a council to have the skills necessary to maintain beachfront esplanade ... it's a specialist field which needs specialists for the job," he said. "I would prefer to see the National Parks and Wildlife staff given the responsibility. Unfortunately, while spinifex is nature's first line of defence, it is really the second line because councils along the Queensland Coast are thereat line of defence ... and they just haven't the right skills." Mrs Matta said dunes should be "monitored and watched ...not destroyed by the very body that was entrusted to protect the area". The Mirror understands council continued to remove spinifex on Wednesday, but was more selective. No more spinifex was removed from in front of the Bangalee houses.

crack down heavily on theives • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 them more aware. We do keep our eyes on school kids but it's not only that age group which steals." Denhams Supermarket manager Ron Iafrati shared this opinion. Mr Iafrati said shoplifting wasn't confined to young people. "You can get older people stealing," he said. "They steal some of the most unusual objects. They take health and beauty objects as well as cigarettes." Mr Iafrati said with school children up to 18 years old, he was never quite sure why they stole. "It could be for a macho reason or just a lark," he said. "However it doesn't matter who you are, this company's policy is to crack down heavily on shoplifters. When someone is caught the person is taken directly to the police. We do not hesitate to prosecute shoplifters." John Bretz from Murphs Sight 'n Sound said he was lucky most of his equipment was large. Mr Iafrati said people stole small items that could easily be concealed while Mr Bretz said most of his small items were around the front counter. Mr Iafrati said it was only through staff themselves catching someone stealing that it was brought to their attention. Every year thousands of dollars could be saved by stamping out shoplifting. Mr Bretz said the main item people could take from his shop was a cassette tape. "What they don't realise is that the cassettes on display don't have tapes in them," he said. "It is always a worrying experience to watch out for shoplifters. If someone is a professional thief they'll always find a way to take something. "Modern shops today are either very open or cluttered and people will hide behind stands to take goods. Apart from hiring two people to watch one person there isn't much you can do." He praised the community-mindedness of the woman shopping in Rockmans who took note of what was happening nearby. Duncan Stewart from Stewart and Brumm's Chemist in James Street said he had no sympathy for someone caught shoplifting and wouldn't hesitate to call the police. Mr Stewart said it was difficult to pinpoint how much was lost to shoplifting each year but they did find the odd empty perfume bottle or hair colour packet. "We have, at times, lost quite expensive bits and pieces to shoplifters," he said. "Sunglasses are also a great item for thieves. "People walk into the shop wearing glasses and walk out wearing glasses. It's just that they leave their old scratched pair on the stand and forget to pay for the new pair they are wearing." Mr Stewart said his pharmacy was in a better position because of its more intimate atmosphere and staff kept a vigilant eye on people. "I wouldn't like to say categorically that young people are to blame," he said. "Popular beliefs blame young people for shoplifting. I have caught young people but I've also caught older people stealing. "Sometimes this popular belief could colour our thinking. If I catch someone over 10-yearsold I will not hesitate to call in the police. "I have no sympathy for the blighters. It's like breaking into a house. Not enough emphasis is

put on shoplifting ... it's a bit of a game. Besides, everyone pays in the end." Treasure Trove proprietor Edna Thring said she wouldn't feel uneasy about handing someone over to the police for shoplifting. "I would give children (up to 10 years-old) a severe talking to just to scare the living daylights out of them but older children and adults should know better," she said. "Shoplifting always worsens around Christmas. Children take small items like hair clips, spoons - mainly tourist stuff - but we did catch an older person stealing a leather purse from one of the display cases." Mrs Thring said one problem with shoplifters was that they worked in groups and while one tried to distract her the others stole items. "They can't expect to be treated lightly because they should know better," she said. His 'N' Hers Resort Wear said they could lose about 10 per cent of stock to shoplifters. Swimwear would be the biggest item stolen along with other clothes, bags and accessories. They found people work in groups. One talks to the shop assistant while the rest take the goods. Proprietor Kay Murray said she had no hesitation in calling the police to prosecute. "Shoplifters come from all age groups," she said. "If they're six or seven-years-old we will give them a scare if we catch them but with older ones we will call the police straight in. "Stealing will increase with the Christmas holidays and we will really be watching for shoplifters." Mrs Murray said she had considered putting in a security system. The one she looked at which would fully secure the shop cost about S25,000. "You have to weigh-up whether the sales you're losing justify putting in a system," she said. "Shoplifting is a problem that probably won't be solved. "I would rather call the police and get shoplifters convicted. I would also rather lose a sale than take a shoplifter's offer to pay for the goods. I don't want them to get away with it." Margaret Malinconico from Findlays Electrical Store said the police would be called in on any shoplifting case. Mrs Malinconico said Findlay's didn't get a lot of shoplifting because most of the goods were too big to move. However, shavers, clippers, padlocks and car radios had fallen prey to shoplifters. "It's generally little stuff," she said. "It doesn't matter what age, we will call the police and prosecute. With the Christmas holidays approaching we'll be on the look out. "We've caught young children and grandmas. There is no set age group that shoplifts. We will be putting on extra staff to look for shoplifters this Christmas."

• CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 death for an unborn child is the death of its mother. The best way to protect the unborn child is to ensure the mother's seat belt is worn properly. * Myth five: Seat belts are unsafe because they might trap a person in the crash. Instead of trapping the occupants, seat belts help them remain conscious and more able to get quickly out of the car. You cannot escape from a burning or sinking car if you are unconscious. * Myth six: Seat belts are only necessary on long journeys. Serious crashes occur at all speeds, on all kinds of journeys and under all conditions. Short, local trips are potentially more dangerous, even if travelling at lower speeds. Research shows the majority of driver fatalities occur less than 10km from home. * Myth seven: You can compensate for not using seat belts by driving slowly and carefully. 'The risk of injury is only partly related to speed. Where children were injured, research showed a majority of multiple-vehicle crashes appeared to be caused by vehicles other than those in which children were killed. Even though you may drive slowly, you can't influence the other vehicle's speed, and accident severity is related to the combined speeds of vehicles involved. * Myth eight: It is safer to be thrown clear during a collision. The risk of death or serious injury is many times greaterwhen the occupant is ejected. This iswhy motor-cyclists suffer high rates of injury or death, yet they are thrown clear nearly every time. Before the introduction of seat belt-wearing laws about one-quarter of deaths resulted from people being thrown out. * Myth nine: Seat belts cause injuries. Belted occupants may occasionally receive minor injuries from belts, but injuries are much less likely to occur if seat belts are worn correctly. In any case, bruises and minor fractures are much easier to treat than the injuries suffered by people not wearing seat belts. * Myth 10: Unrestrained occupants in a vehicle are the only ones in danger in a collision. During a collision, unrestrained occupants become high-speed projectiles. In a frontal collision, people in the front seat can receive serious neck and spinal injuries from being struck directly or through the seat by rear seat passengers. In a side collision, a person can be struck by the passenger next to him and forced out of the window or door. There are a number of different restraints for children up to 11 years. Bassinet restraints can be used by 0-6-month-old babies up to 9kg. From six months to four-and-a-half years (or 19kg) a child seat can be used. Harnesses can be worn by children between 12 months and 11 years (9kg to 38kg). Booster cushion and seats are suitable for children between two-and-a-half and 11 years (14kg to 38kg). Drivers and passengers (over 10 years old) occupying a seat fitted with a seat belt must wear the belt properly adjusted and securely fastened. This is a personal responsiblity. The penalty for not wearing a seat belt - when one is available - is $50 and two demerit points. Drivers are responsible for ensuring that any child under 10 years wears an approved child restraint. If the child is over 12 months an adult seat belt is an acceptable form of restraint. Children under 10 years must not travel unrestrained in the front seat if a back seat is vacant. The regulation provides that a driver cannot drive a car with an unrestrained child if a restraint is available. The penalty is S50 and two demerit points. The only exceptions to wearing a seat belt are when a driver is reversing; a person holds a medical certificate classifying them as unable to drive or travel while wearing a seat belt for a specified time period; a person engaged on work which requires him to alight from and reenter a motor vehicle at frequent intervals and that person is not driving or travelling in that vehicle at a speed exceeding 25 km/h, and taxi drivers carrying passengers or plying for hire for passengers.

PACKED GALLERY HEARS PIGGERY REFUSAL A PACKED gallery at this month's Livingstone Shire Council meeting heald the decision not to approve an application to operate a piggery at Bondoola. The objections to Les White's application for an intensive piggery (200 sows) at Bondoola was its site and effect on aesthetics. Mr and Mrs White were present, as were 10 people who had objected to the piggery. A report to council - supplied by consultant town planners Ulman and Nolan - outlined reasons for and against the proposal and recommended council give approval as long as certain conditions were followed. Town planner Scott Stewart said there were good reasons to approve but also reasons to refuse the application.
Cr Mike Prior said he was against approval because the setting was wrong. "My main concern is that the proposed site is in the path of Livingstone's secondary water supply from Limestone Creek," he said. Cr Kevin Hinz agreed with Cr Prior. "It's in the wrong place," he said. "There are miles of vacant land to place the piggery instead of along the highway, in a watercourse and where people don't want it." Cr Ellen Cogill shared this opinion. Cr Duncan McDonald said there was no reason to refuse. "The land is in the rural area and complies with the by-laws," he said. Cr Roy Wall's argument was that refusing the piggery at the proposed site was adding to rise in foodstuff costs.

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council building inspector Ken Hodby told council it had two options in dealing with a kit home application. Mr and Mrs R Meharry are building a kit home at lot 10, Reef Street, Zilzie, and found that the fascia board was 90mm inside the allowed 1500mm to the boundary. Mr Hodby said council had two options ... it could ask the kit company to cut back the overhang to the 90mm to make the building 1500mm off the boundary or council could alter its requirments. "The position that was thought to have been where the survey peg was situated was 100mm inside the boundary line and this has only just been discovered," he said. It is considered this has been a genuine mistake." Cr Lawrie Daley successfully moved that Mr and Mrs Meharry be allowed to build 1400mm from the boundary.

"The cost of foodstuffs will rise if council keeps forcing these farmers out," he said. Cr John Dowie said he didn't believe approval would be in the interest of people generally. "I'm concerned about the location because I have seen debris close to the proposed piggery site after a lot of rain. "I don't think it is in the interests of the shire and community. It can't confirm with regulations and isn't a viable site." Cr Brian Dorey said council was in a "no-win" situation. "The family is entitled to earn a living," he said. "Mr White is entitled to use the land to run a business. The recommenation approves and if council acts accordingly it will be efficiently maintained and controlled." Cr John Smith the business was in the right zoning and public pressure was "probably knocking it down". Cr Glenda Mather said her reasons for refusal were to safeguard the owners from the "long-term effects" of starting the business. Cr Maurie Webb foreshadowed a motion that in the case the application was refused, council should raise funds to shift the piggery to another location. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen called for a vote, and except for Crs Webb, Wall, McDonald and Dorey, councillors refused the White application. The foreshadowed motion was also put and the same four Crs voted for the motion. This motion was also lost. A further proposal was approved. Cr Webb moved that the land be sub-divided, council shift the piggery to another location and waive future fees. Cr Dorey amended this motion to waiving fees for any new town planning applications put in by the Whites.

Top basketball teams straight into grand finals
SINGING Ship Indoor Bowls Club congratulated Yepppoon's St James club on winning the Hartwig Shield. St James defeat Singing Ship 111-87. The game was played in a competitive but friendly manner, making it a most enjoyable afternoon. The raffle was won by E L'Estrange of St James. On Saturday, St Joseph's club visited Emu Park and defeated the locals 133-123. The winner of the raffle was J Lock and another St Joseph's player, C Jones, won a beautiful bride doll made by Singing Ship member Eadie Brooks. The club's year is drawing to a close with only the Moss triples and presidents day to be played before the annual meeting on December 3 and break-up party on December 10.
IT WAS final week for the Capricorn Coast Basketball except for A grade women where the two top teams went straight to the grand final. In that grade it's Billabong A v Seagulls who will battle over the gold. The A men's competition has been a keen battle throughout with Saints, under the guidance of Rockhampton Rocket guard Carrot. Campbell qualifying first for the grand final. The final was contested between Coasters A and Scoobs. In an unexpected move, former player/coach Jim Shackleton made a re-appearance for Coasters after 11 weeks away from basketball. Despite his slow start, Coasters took control of the first half sufficiently to lead by three points at the break. Coasters didn't let go easily and kept the exchange going to the dying stages of the game where Scoobs found themselves with the lead and two minutes to go. Holding the ball, Scoobs sought to run the clock down but the deferice, left with no alternative but to pressure the ball carrier, found Scoobs ready to capatilise on the openings created - led by John Christensen, hammered home a welter of baskets leading to a final score which didn't reflect the closeness of the game. Unfortunately, at the deadline, the B grade games had yet to be played.
Interested in a day on the bay? THINKING of buying a trailer-sailer or a yacht? The Capricornia Cruising Yacht Club is giving people a chance to answer these questions at a "Come and See" day on Sunday. Club spokesman John Harry said people were invited to try yachting and find out more about the sport. "It will be an ideal time for people interested in buying a trailer sailer or cruising yacht to talk to club members," he said. "The aim is to let people see how a yacht works and if they like it, what they should do. Some people can't afford yachts so it is also a great way to have a go." Mr Harry said interested people should phone him by tomorrow (Saturday) to find out what to wear, bring and when to turn up. This is the second time the club has held an open day. Mr Harry said the interest from people at last year's inaugural open day had prompted the second "Come and See" day. "Everyone is invited to attend," he said. "Members will try to answer any questions asked. Depending on the weather we will either cruise around Rosslyn Bay or go to the islands." Mr Harry can be reached at work on phone 28 3366 or home 28 5131.

Cricketers undefeated this season CAPRICORN Coast Cricket Club's second grade team is still undefeated this season after downing Grammar in Rockhampton on October 28 and November 5. The toss resulted in Grammer having first use at the crease on a well grassed wicket offering good assistance to the bowlers. Cap Coast's opening bowlers once were on top from the start which resulted in a steady flow of Grammar batsmen leaving the crease without many runs. After 27 overs Grammar was all out for 60 with W Kitchener taking six for 46 off 14 overs and K Ogilvie taking four for 13 off 12 overs. Coast then set about passing the score for first innings points and building a solid score in front for the possibility of gaining its third outright in succession. Openers S Pidcock and P Huxtable set up a good foundation with a tradesman-like opening stand which set the stage for the middle order to score freely. Batting into the second day Coast declared at 9-118 ... leading by 58 runs. Jason Dawes showing team members his future, top scoring with 28, supported well by J Ingle with 15 and P Huxtable also 15. With just under four hours of play remaining Coast set about dismissing the talented young Grammar-side again. This time Grammar offered a little more resistance but still couldn't come to terms with the Coast opening attack and superb fielding and catching in particular. A Wall's catch at square leg and J Ingles two catches in slips were the best seen in the club. With this combination among the Coast players, Grammar reached only 106, leaving Coast just 49 runs for an outright win. The bowling honours were again shared by W Kitchener, three for 19 off 13 overs; K
Navigators, Odds and Ends go straight into squash grand final THE top team in each grade has progressed to the grand final of the Capricorn Coast Squash Rackets Association fixtures. In A, B and C grades Navigators progressed straight to the grand finals while in the Women's Only competition second-placed Odds and Ends went straight to the grand final and top team Bits and Pieces narrowly defeated Odds and Ends 2 in the Monday night preliminary final 3-2. C grade is the only grade where the second team failed to make the grand final. Underdogs Secret Weapons proved to be the traditional fly in the ointment when they overturned Odds and Ends 3-2 in the final on Wednesday night at the Capricorn Coast Squash Centre to enter the grand final. In the B grade final Saints and Sinners narrowly defeated Bits and Pieces two rubbers each, eight games to six. Saints and Sinners was fortunate to win two very close matches in three. Sean Hansen just held out Mike George 109, 10-9, 9-3, while David Schultz defeated Kevin Orr in an excellent match 10-8, 9-7, 9-7. (1(dfr, A grade saw Odds and Ends pop up after Bits and Pieces narrowly led one rubber each, four games each, 58 points to 54 after two matches. Andrew Dowie for Odds and Ends won 3-1 at number two against Ray Campbell to put them in the lead. John Briggs needed to win two games to
Sunday juniors provided an exciting game where a Yeppoon team really looked like making its first grand final. John Christensen Raiders from Yeppoon looked comfortable against a disorganised early effort by Alan Thomas Emu Park Devils. In a complete reversal of Devils last match against Demons, its pivotal player, Matthew Coyle, got away to a nervous start, trying just a little too hard to be successful. Basketball is a volatile game and the turning point was when Raiders effervescent Scott Leslie found himself with three fouls and Devils returned from a time out revitalised ... led by Wesley Titmarsh and Troy Spyve showing the way in seeking possession. Matt Coyle returned to the fray attacking again and again, despite some excellent rejects by Paul Christensen, wearing down the close up shop was falling apart. Back court steals followed by successful attempts and Devils suddenly had not only the control but also the lead and continued the momentum to make it an all Emu Park grand final once again for juniors. A game of entirely different style decided the intermediate finals. Young Bombers, playing above their age grade, made it to number two spot with percentage play and cool heads ... but on the night fell to a game formula which has not previously proven sucessful for Rebels.
clinch the result for Odds and Ends, but Neil Roberts won 16 points straight. The result looked anything but clear. John steadied his game late in the second and got his length going to recover and win in four to proceed to the grand final. The grand finals for all grades will be played on SaturdayNovember 19 (tomorrow) starting at 6pm at the Capricorn Coast Squash Centre. A grade results. Odds and Ends defeated Bits and Pieces 3-1: May Briggs v Leon Malone 1-3; Val Odell d Narelle Millar 3-1; Andrew Dowie d Ray Campbell 3-1; John Briggs d Neil Roberts 3-1. B grade. Saints and Sinners defeated Bits and Pieces, two rubbers each, eight games to six: reserve Ronny O'Brien v Brendan McKenna 1-3; Sean Hansen d Mike George 3-0; David Schultz d Kevin Orr 3-0; Dennis Hinton v Brett Odell 1-3. C grade. Secret Weapons defeated Odds and Ends 3-2: Peter Clarke v Jay Robinson 03; Gavin Kime dNick Hughes 3-0; Marty Dixon d Anne Priem 3-1; Wendy Hinton v Greg Simpson 0-3; Warren Sullivan d Debbie Shanks 3-0. Women's Only results.

Ogilvie took four for 38 off 14 overs and A Wall two for 26 off seven overs. W Kitchener's match figures of 9 for 65 and K Ogilvie's 8 for 51, had them sharing the man of the match award from the Railway Hotel. Coast easily acquired the 49 runs required for outright with the loss of three wickets, J Ingle remaining not out for 15.
6 catches down SECOND grade Cap Coast Cricket Club started its fifth game of the season and possibly the hardest to date against old rivals Easts at the Rockhampton cricket grounds on Saturday. Eastswon the toss and elected to bat on a flat and lifeless wicket ... painstakingly grinding out 183 for six at the end of the day's playwhich saw the Coast bowlers send down 81 overs. Coast's cause was made harder because of vital dropped catches - six - which allowed Easts middle order to consolidate. A sudden return to turf or earth for the Coast second grade players, having swept all before them until that game, now have 'to fight by putting their heads down when batting this week. Bowling honours were evenly shared with congratulations to D Wetzler for his faultless fielding in his debut game in second grade.
Outright defeat CAP Coast cricket third grade side played Frenchville at Victoria Park and was let down by a few absent players. The Coast team fielded only eight players which resulted in Frenchville accumulating a sizeable score of 238. S Christie, B West and L Clarke stuck to their task extremely well, considering a short field, and had to contend with taking 5 for 74 off 14; three for 82 off nine and two for 54 off eight respectively. Coast replied with 79, of which D Letchford contributed 39 and K Dunning with 17. The Coast side was then forced to follow on, again falling short to be dismissed for 51 giving Frenchville outright points. J Semmler, offering a captain's resistance, was 13 not out.
274 runs to go! COAST third grade cricket side took on Allenstown at Victoria Park, Rockhampton, on the weekend. Allenstown batted first and accumulated a sizeable score of 315, keeping the Coast boys in hard work for most of the day. Coast is none for 31 in reply.
Cavaliers win Junior final
YEPPOON Cavaliers won the junior cricket final for years six and seven on Saturday at Yeppoon State School grounds. The side defeated Yeppoon Colts 107 to 95. Yeppoon Cavaliers best batsmen: Scott Leslie 25 not out, Chris Robertson 25 not out and Robin Knobel 16 not out. Best bowlers were Troy Pinkerton two for 17 and David Knobel three for 10. Colts' best batsman was Jeffrey Glanville 26 not out and best bowler was Cameron Dunne, two for 16. The players thank the coaches and all the parents who gave time to support junior cricket in 1988.
Normally relying heavily on strong post play by towering Tony Novak, on Sunday it was the rebound and long pass to Tony Beck that caught Bombers unawares giving Rebels sufficient lead to control the match in the second half. Bombers fought back grimly, out-scoring Rebels and tightening their defence but the game had slipped from their grasp and Bombers will have to now look to 1989. For Bombers, Richard Caulfield put in his usual good performance (scoring three points). Andrew Moore hustled well in defence, Craig Lawton looks to have excellent potential if he can just develop a little more confidence. For Rebels, Andrew Prince made 10 points, but really needs to develop some defensive skills. Grand final day is Sunday, November 27, and anyone interested in watching some keenly contested basketball in all grades is certain of an entertaining day. Games start with juniors at 9am and the last game, A grade men will be held at 4pm. Spectators seats are free and open to all. If you are a prospective player for next season or if you would like to watch this non-stop action sport, Sunday, November 27, promises to be a great day for you.

Broncos will play Coast in New Year THE Capricorn Coast has scored a coup for Rugby League fans with the Brisbane Broncos set to play a New Chippindale Invitation side on February 18 at St Brendan's College. Yeppoon Seagull's president Cr Maurie Webb said on Wednesday the Broncos had confirmed they would play on the Coast as part of a promotional tour of Queensland. Cr Webb said a curtain-raiser would precede the main game. This was still being organised by the club. He said the-Brisbane Broncos had between 70 and 80 players and teams were being sent to Dalby, Mt Isa and Yeppoon to play invitation games. "We've asked John Ribot, the club's general manager, to send at least three stars," he said. "We have particularly asked for Allan Langer, Sam Backo and Peter Jackson to included in the Coast's team. "If the players are given the choice between the Coast and the western areas we think they'll opt for here." Cr Webb said the idea behind having a later game was to avoid some of the heat. "The team will also be attending a function organised at the Strand Hotel where Coast people and visitors will be able to rage on," he said. "Brian Hooper said Coast motel owners would come to the party by providing the team with accommodation during their stay. "We are also arranging a trip to Great Keppel Island for the Sunday. The Victory has offered to take the team free-of-charge and Great Keppel Island's manager Rob Cook will act as host while they are on the island." Mr Webb said 2000 tickets would be printed for the occasion and they will go on sale early January and negotiations are still underway to arrange a gate prize.

GOVERNMENTS certainly have a different way of looking at things ... Premier Mike Ahern sent a press release this week boldly announcing proposals to assist Queensland tobacco farmers by developing a $10 million programme which was part of the State Budget. What it boils down to is that the State Government has imposed a tax on tobacco (cigarettes, cigars, pipe blends) which, on the one hand will raise money for the government and, on the other, probably cause a drop in tobacco consumption. If less people smoke the tobacco farmers will probably find less demand for their product. So, the government is going to re-allocate some of its ill-gotten gains back to the tobacco farmers in the way of an assistance programme. The Premier said the assistance, in one form, would help farmers to adjust to new marketing circumstances. He said the government recognised the tobacco tax "would impact on tobacco farmers in North Queensland". Now, the Premier reckons his government was forced to bring in the tax "as a result of cutbacks in Federal Government funds". All of that seems strange ... in a world that is increasingly becoming antismoking, why couldn't the Premier simply say the tax had been brought in to stop people smoking? Let's face it, the government has banned smoking in all of its buildings which must also "impact" on tobacco farmers because there must be a lot of public servants who smoke ... and, from memory, one in four of us are public servants (or is it one in three?) Anyway, here's a press release saying the tobacco farmers are going to be helped with $10 million yet everything else the government is doing is designed to "impact" on the industry. Why can't politicians be fair dinkum and just say what they mean ... they want more cash, smokers are hooked and will keep smoking whatever the price, smokers are therefore fair game for a tax hike, and a "bone" will be thrown to the farmers to shut them up! That $10 million is just money that's going up in smoke!!! •• • IN case you're wondering, James Hill smokes!!! •• • RHETT Watson has a (former) Tomcat (Suzy made it former) and, instead of quietly pursuing a lazy life, the cat (called Cat) likes life in the fast lane. The result was coming second in a catfight and winding up at the vet's with a lump on its back. So, after an operation on Wednesday, Cat was lazing around in a cage waiting for a ride home. Rhett organised brother Rhodes to provide transport and Rhett, Rhodes and Cat set off for Kinka Beach. Approaching a roundabout, Rhett discovered his seat-belt was caught in the door and was uncomfortable. Rhodes suggested he open the door and release the belt. Unfortunately, Rhett, with Cat on lap, chose the moment the car rounded the roundabout to open the door. Rhodes, aware of his responsibilities as a driver, watched amazed as both Rhett and Cat headed in the same direction as the opening door. Thinking fast, he reached out to save his brother ... and grabbed Cat by the back legs. Rhett, freed from his responsibilty for Cat, saved himself. This notice is printed in the interests of road safety ... it is funny, in retrospect, but it shows how easily something tragic can happen. By the way, Cat is fine \ 1,.!fr.ett is still shaking!!!
